        Unbewußte Gemeinheiten. Unbeswusste Gemeinheiten. Ein Vortrag.

      Verlag Ernst Reinhardt, München 1905 - RARE early 1st Edn. BLEULER father of SCHIZOPHRENIA. EUGEN BLEULER Unbeswusste Gemeinheiten. 8vo., 40pp. [22.8 x 14.8cms] Original printed stiff light brown wrappers. FIRST EDITION of one of Bleuler's rare published papers. Paul Eugen Bleuler (April 30, 1857 - July 15, 1939) was a Swiss psychiatrist most notable for his contributions to the understanding of mental illness and coining the term schizophrenia. Bleuler was born in Zollikon, a small town near Zurich in Switzerland, to Johann Rudolf Bleuler, a wealthy farmer, & Pauline Bleuler-Bleuler. He studied medicine in Zurich, and later studied in Paris, London and Munich after which he returned to Zurich to take a post as an intern at the Burghölzli, a university hospital. In 1886 Bleuler became the director of a psychiatric clinic at Rheinau, a hospital located in an old monastery on an island in the Rhine. Rheinau was noted at the time for being backward, and Bleuler set about improving conditions for the patients resident there. Bleuler returned to the Burghölzli in 1898 to be appointed director, where notably he employed Carl Jung as an intern. Bleuler is particularly notable for naming schizophrenia, a disorder which was previously known as dementia praecox. Bleuler realized the condition was neither a dementia, nor did it always occur in young people (praecox meaning early) and so gave the condition the purportedly less stigmatising but still controversial name from the Greek roots schizein ("to split") and phr?n, phren- ("mind"). Bleuler treated celebrated Russian ballet dancer Vaslav Nijinsky after his breakdown in 1919. Bleuler coined the New Latin word autismus (English translation autism) in 1910 as he was defining symptoms of schizophrenia, deriving it from the Greek word autos (meaning self). According to the Critical Dictionary of Psychoanalysis by Charles Rycroft, it was Bleuler who introduced the term ambivalence (in 1911). An excellent near fine example, upper cover with a gentle fold neatly straightened. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Sea Power in its Relations to the War of 1812

      London: Sampson Low, Marston & company, Limited,, 1905. 2 volumes, large octavo. Publisher's later dark blue combed cloth, titles to spines gilt. With the dust jackets. Photogravure frontispiece and 8 other plates to each, 25 maps and plans in all, 5 of them folding. Front hinges slightly cracked, else a very good set in jackets. First UK edition, same year as the US, from American sheets with a cancel title. Originally published in parts by Scribner's between January 1904 and January 1905, this volume constitutes the final part of Mahan's highly influential Sea Power series. The bindings and dust jackets on this set are clearly later, almost certainly from the 1940s when perhaps some unbound sheets were found in the warehouses of Sampson Low. Sets of Clowes's Royal Navy, from the same publishers, have also been encountered in similar bindings and jackets, and the jacket design itself is very similar to that of Sea Power by T124 (pseudonym of Capt. Russell Grenfell), a well-received and widely-read study published in 1941.

First edition. Wheeler was born in Kilkenny, and emigrated to Canada with his family in 1876. He served an apprenticeship as a Dominion Land Surveyor with Rvley and Hamilton, and with Elihu Stewart in Collingwood, spending his first year in Canada surveying the Bruce Mines area of Ontario with Ryley and Hamilton, before joining Stewart in carrying out Indian Reserve surveys in Canada's new west. The present work is based on a photo-topographical survey of the Selkirk Range carried out in 1901-2, concentrating particularly on areas utilized by tourists and mountain climbers. In 1906, inspired by his mountain surveys, Wheeler founded the Alpine Club of Canada, he was the club's first President from 1906-10, editing the Canadian Alpine Journal from 1907 to 1930, he then served as managing director until 1926 when he retired and was elected Honorary President, continuing in that office until his death in 1945. He was the driving force behind two of the Club's most successful expeditions, the 1913 Mount Robson camp and the 1925 ascent of Mount Logan.

This handsome series was a consequence of their association, and includes volumes under the titles KOKORO, LOTOS, IZUMO, BUDDHA, KYUSHU, and KWAIDAN. There were also twenty-five copies of each volume printed on Japan vellum. The series was popular; two additional works appeared in 1911 and 1912 and several of the volumes were reprinted in later years.

Metz & Co., (1905). Frontispiece of the factory complex in Germany, line illustrations of manufacturing apparatus in the text, and hundreds of swatches of dyed cloths, large and small, in a wide spectrum of colors and patterns. vi,162 pp. Text is in English. 4to., light green cloth sides, gilt title to upper board, publisher's information to lower board, patterned endpapers. Although the backstrip is lacking, the boards are firmly attached. Most leaves have some light dust-soiling at margins and the boards are bowed because the number of mounted samples keeps the individual leaves and the entire volume from closing tightly. A trade catalogue of Thiogene Colors, a subset of the Sulpher Color group, which allowed the direct dyeing of dyestuffs in a greater variety of colors, excepting red, than was formerly possible. The work is divided into two parts; one part deals with the application of Thiogene Colors, and the other describes in detail the various modes of application and the properties of individual colors in the series.

The Well of the Saints is a three-act play written by Irish playwright J. M. Synge, first performed at the Abbey Theatre by the Irish National Theatre Society in February, 1905. It is set in the rural east of Ireland two or more centuries ago. First edition. Edmund John Millington Synge (16 April 1871- 24 March 1909) was an Irish playwright, poet, prose writer, travel writer and collector of folklore. He was a key figure in the Irish Literary Revival and was one of the co-founders of the Abbey Theatre. He is best known for his play The Playboy of the Western World, which caused riots in Dublin during its opening run at the Abbey Theatre. Although he came from an Anglo-Irish background, Synge's writings are mainly concerned with the world of the Roman Catholic peasants of rural Ireland and with what he saw as the essential paganism of their world view. This play is volume one of 'The Abbey Theatre Series'. The Abbey Theatre, also known as the National Theatre of Ireland, is a theatre located in Dublin, Ireland. The Abbey first opened its doors to the public on 27 December 1904. Despite losing its original building to a fire in 1951, it has remained active to the present day. Synge's plays helped set the Abbey house style for the following four decades. The stylised realism of his writing was reflected in the training given at the theatre's school of acting, and plays of peasant life were the main staple of the repertoire until the end of the 1950s. Bound by Greuzevault, with binder's stamp to front pastedown. Condition: In an armorial full morocco binding with original paper wraps bound in. Externally, in a excellent condition with only very slight marks to rear boards and some staining to rear pastedown. Internally, firmly bound. Bright but with the odd spot and handling mark to pages.
