        Autograph Letter Signed as King, to Crown Prince Wilhelm ('My Dear Willy.')

      1905 - 8vo, Marienbad, 5 September 1905, 3pp., on royal monogrammed paper, creased across centre resulting from previous fold. Lamenting that Wilhelm has been forbidden by his father, the last German emperor Wilhelm II, from visiting him at Windsor (".unhappily your papa objects to your going away to England this year.") and expressing regret that he is unable to renew his acquaintance with Wilhelm's new wife Cecile. Edward VII was renowned for his diplomatic skills, the French referring to him as 'the Peacemaker'; but his relations with his nephew, the Kaiser, were strained. It is interesting to see in this letter to the Kaiser's eldest son, the Crown Prince, that although an adult, married and shortly to become a father he was still forbidden to visit his great uncle in England. The Kaiser was notoriously difficult, tactless and irascible, traits that ultimately led to the catastrophic First World War and his forced abdication.

        The Burden of the Balkans.

      London: Edward Arnold, 1905 - Octavo. Original red cloth, titles to spine in black, front board lettered and illustrated in black, fore and bottom edges untrimmed. 2 publisher's advertisement slips laid in. Spine slightly rolled and faded, light rubbing to extremities, pale marking to rear board, very mild scattered foxing, a few short nicks to fore edge of folding map, the image unaffected. A very good copy. Tinted portrait frontispiece, 7 half-tone plates and numerous illustrations to the text, several full-page, all after the author's own sketches, folding map to rear. First edition of the author's second book, describing a tour in the Ottoman provinces of Skodra, Monastir and Janina, which together cover parts of modern Albania, Macedonia and Greece. Durham (1863-1944) was nearly forty when she first visited the Balkans, then rarely visited by outsiders, and "described her experiences in a series of vivid and forthright books" (ODNB). She had initially travelled for health reasons, but found herself performing relief work after the Macedonian insurrection of 1903. She was almost alone in understanding the series of Balkan conflicts as wars of nationality more than religion, and saw that the predominantly Muslim Albanians were put at a special disadvantage by the disintegration of the Ottoman Empire. She lobbied assiduously for the Albanians in dispatches for British newspapers, founded an Anglo-Albanian association and was offered permanent residency in the country after the Great War. Scarce in collector's condition. Arcadian Library 14744; Robinson, Wayward Women, pp. 260-1. [Attributes: First Edition]

Wilson and other members of the expedition, photogravure frontispieces, 12 coloured plates, panoramas and maps, original blue cloth gilt, original light blue dust-wrappers, light spotting, an excellent set.

Bernard Wilson, elder brother of Edward Wilson. Edward Wilson was appointed to serve as second surgeon, artist, and zoologist on Scott's Discovery Expedition. The owners of the Hall, understandably excited by their link to the newly explored Antarctic regions, acquired the present copy and treated it with reverence, not discarding the dust-wrappers as was usual at the time.

First published in Blackwood`s Magazine, in 1859, then in book form, in vol. 10 of Tales from Blackwood, The Haunted has since been widely anthologized and remains a classic of the genre. Our copy conforms to the text of the longer-form story, not the usual abbreviated version, commonly reprinted as "The House and the Brain," which "lacks both coherence and conclusion." (Survey of Modern Fantasy Literature II, pp. 698-700) Clute and Grant refer to the longer version as "an archetypal Victorian haunted-dwelling story . . . remarkably effective in its creation of atmosphere." Sullivan traces its direct influence from Ralph Adams Cram's "No. 252 Rue M. le Prince" (1895) to Richard Matheson's Hell House (1971).

        Die Schädelbasis im Röntgenbilde.

      Röfo Erg., 11. - (Archiv und Atlas der norm. u. path. Anatomie in typischen Röntgenbildern. Hrsg. von Albers-Schönberg). - Hamburg, Lucas Gräfe & Sillem, 1905, 4, 6 orig. photograph. Tafeln, 6 Skizzenblätter, 30 Abb., OHLnBd. Artur Schüller was born in Brünn, Czechoslovakia, when Gregor (Johann) Mendel (1822-1884) was still experimenting with plants in the garden of the Augustinian monastery Königskloster in the town. His father was a specialist in otolaryngology, and a friend of Adam Politzer (1835-1920). He was outstanding at school, especially in the humanities and music, and he entered medicine in Vienna aged 17. He graduated M.D. in 1899 with the highest honours, being awarded a prize by Franz Joseph at a special audience, which had only been given twice during the emperor's 60 year reign. He subsequently worked at the Allgemeines Krankenhaus and the psychiatric clinic. He was habilitated for neurology and psychiatry at Vienna in 1907, becoming titular ausserordentlicher professor in 1914.Guido Holzknecht (1872-1931) invited him to join his X-ray department and rapidly he fulfilled the promise of his undergraduate days by his careful analysis of X-ray examinations of the skull, which set out fundamental principles still forming the basis of this examination. In 1910 Schüller performed experiments on dogs that suggested the practicality of cordotomy for pain relief. He also suggested the transphenoidal nasal approach for pituitary operations. In 1909, aged 35, he was appointed university professor in Vienna, where his colleagues were his former teachers Theodor Billroth (1829-1894), Carl Wilhelm Hermann Nothnagel (1841-1905), Hans Finsterer (1877-1955), Adam Politzer, Richard von Krafft-Ebing (1840-1902) and Julius Wagner Jauregg (1857-1940). When World War I came Schüller did much medical work for the army, and wrote a paper describing a patient with Hand-Schüller disease in 1915. Following the war, Vienna changed from a city of prosperity to one of poverty and in the hyperinflation that followed he found great difficulty in making ends meet. In order to eke out a living, he undertook postgraduate classes in private on X-ray diagnosis of disorders of the skull, ear, nose, and throat and made a collection of almost every disorder known of the skull, which unfortunately was lost when he left Vienna. He wrote over 300 papers, monographs and books, and in one described the disorder osteoporosis circumscripta cranii, which is an early stage of Paget's disease of the skull and may be detected before any symptomatology. With the rise of Hitler, Schüller left Vienna hurriedly in 1938, leaving most of his possessions behind. His two sons were prevented at the last moment from leaving. After a short time in England he went to Australia where, at the age of 65, he commenced to build up a career. He worked in the X-ray department of St. Vincent's Hospital, Melbourne, where Dr. John O'Sullivan, who had been a pupil of his in Vienna, was an associate. He was much sought after as an X-ray consultant and received X-rays from all over the country for his opinion. During the latter years he was troubled by depression and developed Parkinson's disease. His two sons died in a concentration camp. -cf whonamedit

Specially bound in 1905/1906 by Robert Carrington in full black hard-grain morocco over beveled boards. Covers elaborately decorated with a geometric and floral design, spine with five raised bands, decoratively tooled and lettered in gilt in compartments, decorative gilt board-edges and wide turn-ins. Red watered silk liners and end-leaves, gold marbled end-papers, all edges gilt. Very slight crack to upper joint - but still quite sound, otherwise near fine. On the front marbled end-paper is a rectangular blue morocco label, decoratively bordered and lettered in gilt "Presented/to/Charles E. Lauriat/on his 64th birthday, January 12, 1906/by/Robert Harrington/(Born Oct. 31, 1841)/as a specimen of his binding/at the age of 64". Robert Carrington ( 1841- ). There is a record of a Robert Carrington, bookbinder in an 1892 publication Public Documents of Massachusetts: Annual Reports of various Public Officers and Institutions for the year 1891 (page 443). Charles E. Lauriat (1842-1920) was a leading bookseller and publisher in Boston. "For 58 years he carried on the culturing and illuminating business of finding and selling the best of the world's literature, and he knew every angle of the trade for which he stood as a mentor and guide. In 1872 Charles Lauriat formed a partnership with Dana Estes, and their establishment was located at 301 Washington Street (except for a short interruption at the time of the Boston fire) until 1906. In 1898 the firm of Estes & Lauriat, which had been pioneers in the field of subscription bookselling as well as general publishing, separated into two corporations. the Dana Estes Co., publishers, and Charles E. Lauriat Co., retailers. Many famous people were frequenters of the store, such as Oliver Wendell Holmes and Justice Holmes, James G. Blaine, Thomas Bailey Aldrich, Phillips Brooks; and innumerable fine libraries in New England and throughout the country owe their beginnings and their development to that store. Very early in the business, the habit of yearly visits to London was started and for nearly fifty years these annual trips were an important phase of the business, and no American buyer was better known to the old book-men of England from whose stocks and auction sales hundreds of cases started for Boston each year. In the development of mail order bookselling, especially in the field of rare books and remainders, Mr. Lauriat was especially successful, and their mailing list of book buyers was one of the most valuable in the country., while hundreds of New England's summer visitors made regular yearly purchases." (The Publishers' Weekly. American Book-Trade Journal. Volume XCVII, January to June, 1920).

        Oliver Wendell Holmes Autograph Letter Signed.

      , 1905. 1905. Autograph letter signed from Oliver Wendell Holmes on Supreme Court letterhead. The letter is to artist Arthur Conrad LeDuc, who sent Holmes a Christmas gift. The letter measures 5 inches by 8 inches. Matted in framed. The entire piece measures 19 inches by 20 inches. Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr. was an American jurist who served as an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States from 1902 to 1932, and as Acting Chief Justice of the United States January-February 1930. Noted for his long service, his concise and pithy opinions and his deference to the decisions of elected legislatures, he is one of the most widely cited United States Supreme Court justices in history, particularly for his "clear and present danger" opinion for a unanimous Court in the 1919 case of Schenck v. United States, and is one of the most influential American common law judges, honored during his lifetime in Great Britain as well as the United States. Holmes retired from the Court at the age 90, making him the oldest Justice in the Supreme Court's history. He also served as an Associate Justice and as Chief Justice on the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court, and was Weld Professor of Law at the Harvard Law School, of which he was an alumnus.

        Der rote Kern, die Haube und die Regio hypothalamica bei einigen Säugetieren und beim Menschen (3: pp.51-267 4: 103-225, 116 Abb., 2 Taf.). In : Arbeiten aus dem Hirnantomischen Institut. 10 Bde. (all publ.).

      Arb. hirnanat. Inst. Zürich, 1-10. - Wiesbaden, J.F. Bergmann, 1905-1916, 8, ca. 3500 pp., ca. 1000 Abb., 10 Leinenbände. First description of "Monakow's bundle", the rubrospinal tract by Constantin von Monakow (1853-1930).There are several great scholars to whom Japanese comparative neurologists are much indebted. They are C.v. Monakow (1853-1930) of Zurich, H.H. Donaldson (1857-1938) and G.E. Coghill (1872-1963) of the Wistar Institute in Philadelphia, C.J. Herrick (1868-1960) of Chicago, and C.U. A. Kappers (1877-1946) of Amsterdam. Most of the Japanese neurologists in early times, such as S. Hatai (1876-1963) and G. Fuse (1880-1946), studied under these European and American mentors. After returning to Japan, they established their own laboratories in Japanese universities and educated many young students."The 'Hirnanatomie Institut' now gradually increased its research and was on a good path to become a world-known centre of brain research. The initial oneman show was amplified by young Swiss collaborators: Minkowski was joined by Nägeli, Veraguth, Tramer, Brun, Katzenstein, Frey. Over the years, a series of visitors from Japan came to work at the Brain Institute. It had a considerable impact on the accomplished work, as recently reported by Akert and Yonekawa*: Tsuchida (monograph on the oculomotor system) Masuda (pontine nuclei - a link from the cerebral cortex to the pontine grey and cerebellum) Gennosuke Fuse (1880-1946), assistant of the University in Zurich from 1907 to 1911 and again from 1914 to 1916 his opus magnum was an atlas of the lower brainstem Hisakiyo Uemura working on long-term retrograde degeneration after cerebellar lesion Tsunesuke Fukuda on thalamo-frontal projections in neuropathological cases (the discovery of the dorsomedial relay nucleus to the prefrontal cortex) Itsuki Nagino (auditory pathway) Sakuemon Kodama (1895-1970), a pupil of Fuse, stayed five years in Zurich. Finally, in 1928/29, Ko Hirasawa (1900-1989) studied the basal ganglia. He made a brilliant career in Japan with a series of outstanding pupils. The Japanese were hardworking scientists, adding considerably to the prestige of the Institute." M. Wiesendanger, C. R.

(1916, 10:pp.113-213).Constantin von Monakow (1853-1930), director of the Brain Anatomy Institute in Zurich, was a pioneer in the early history of interdisciplinary brain sciences. The elucidation of connectivity in sensory and motor pathways was richly illustrated in two landmarkmonographs: Pathologie du cerveau (1897) and La localisation de l'encephale et la dégradation fonctionelle par des lésions circonscrites du cortex cérébral (1914). His special merit was to conceptualize his accumulating results. As to his term 'diaschisis':(1) neurological lesion are rarely restricted to a histologically defined neural structure (2) any brain focus is interconnected with remote structures - thus, dependent structures are deafferented from the lesioned territory (= 'diaschisis') - (3) dependent structures, however, gradually regain some autonomy, as reflected in partial behavioral recovery. His term 'chronogenic localization' was used for the brain's fundamental organization in time-dependent network constellations. Monakow attracted many researchers,particularly from Japan. He was an engaged member of the International Brain Commission until its dissolution during World War I.*K. Akert, Y.

        A Visit to Mr. John D. Rockefeller by Neighbors & Friends at Forest Hill.

      Cleveland: Vinson & Korner Co, 1905. Octavo, original boards. Signed by John D. Rockefeller beneath his frontispiece. One of 425 numbered copies, this is number 396. The work commemorates the day John D. Rockefeller, founder of Standard Oil, was visited by 300 Cleveland businessmen outside his home. Included are 38 pages of the speeches delivered that day, including ones given by Liberty E. Holden and Andrew Squire, and the speech given by Rockefeller in response. In very good condition, rebacked. Rare and desirable. John D. Rockefeller was an American oil industry business magnate and philanthropist. Widely considered the wealthiest American of all time and the richest person in modern history, Rockefeller was born into a large family in upstate New York and was shaped by his con man father and religious mother. His family moved several times before eventually settling in Cleveland, Ohio. Rockefeller became an assistant bookkeeper at the age of 16, and went into a business partnership with Maurice B. Clark and his brothers at 20. After buying them out, he and his brother William founded Rockefeller & Andrews with Samuel Andrews. Instead of drilling for oil, he concentrated on refining. In 1867, Henry Flagler entered the partnership. The Rockefeller, Andrews & Flagler company grew by incorporating local refineries. Rockefeller formally founded the Standard Oil Company, Inc. in 1870 as an Ohio partnership with his brother, Henry Flagler, Jabez A. Bostwick, Samuel Andrews and a silent partner, Stephen V. Harkness. He ran it until 1897. As kerosene and gasoline grew in importance, Rockefeller's wealth soared and he became the richest person in the country, controlling 90% of all oil in the United States at his peak. Oil was used throughout the country as a light source until the introduction of electricity and as a fuel after the invention of the automobile. Furthermore, Rockefeller gained enormous influence over the railroad industry, which transported his oil around the country. Standard Oil was the first great business trust in the United States. Rockefeller revolutionized the petroleum industry, and along with other key contemporary industrialists such as steel magnate Andrew Carnegie, defined the structure of modern philanthropy.

        Vpered [Forward]. Complete run of 18 issues. [Bound with:] Proletarii [The Proletariat]. Complete run of 26 issues.

      "Zheneva" (Geneva), Rossiyskayah Soch Demokraticheskaya Rabochaya Partiya, 1905. - 44 tabloid issues (440 mm), text printed in triple column, bound together in slightly later marbled boards backed with black cloth. Private rubber-stamped library labels to upper cover and spine foot. First edition: the full run of Lenin's (irregularly) weekly political newspaper "Vpered" (January-May 1905), bound with its successor "Proletarii" (May-November 1905), both published by the Russian Social Democratic Labour Party in Geneva. Printed in the same format as Lenin's previous news outlet, "Iskra", which began publication in 1900 in Leipzig and Munich (later continued in Geneva), from where it was illegally smuggled into Russia. Lenin left the editorial staff in 1904 after the paper fell into the hands of the opposing "Menshevik" party faction. He went on to found "Vpered" as a continuation of the still-extant "Iskra", albeit returning to the original Bolshevik platform. Consequently, all three newspapers are near-identical in format, the latter two, however, with the statement at the upper right-hand corner: "Proletarii Vsekh' Stran' Soedinyaytes!" ("All the Proletarians of the Country Unite!"). At head of title of "Vpered" is the French slogan "En Avant"; at head of title of Proletarii: "Le Proletaire". - Boards rubbed, otherwise in very good condition. Old faint rubberstamp of the "Algemeyner Yidisher Arbeter Bund" ("Archiv Bunda") throughout. The "Bund", a Jewish labour and socialist party, was founded in Vilnius, Lithuania, in 1897; in the following year it played a part in the formation of Lenin's Russian Social Democratic Labour Party. By 1921 the activities of the "Bund" came to an end in Russia because of the Bolsheviks' seizure of power. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        A STATEMENT FOR NON-EXCLUSION

      San Francisco, 1905. [8],255pp. including photographic frontis. Original printed wrappers. Minor creasing and chipping to spine and edges, some soiling. Light toning to text, but overall clean internally. Very good. An important contribution to the pro-Chinese struggle in California. Probably the first comprehensive argument against exclusion of Chinese immigrants by a Chinese- American who had himself immigrated to California from his native Canton to become the leading journalist of San Francisco Chinatown, founding editor of the CHUNG SAI YAT PO (CHINESE WESTERN DAILY) newspaper, voice of the city's affluent, literate Chinese merchant elite. More than just a polemic, the book is a virtual history of troubled Chinese life in America from the Gold Rush to the "Era of Demagogism and Persecution." A convert to Christianity, a Presbyterian minister in his youth, soon to become a devotee of Sun Yat Sen's democratic Chinese revolution, Chew probably wrote the bulk of this book, though he may have thought it politic to employ a Caucasian co-author. Healy was an enigmatic figure, a Irish-American who was both a shoemaker and would-be lawyer and the only white man to publicly speak in Sacramento against the exclusion legislation of the 1870s. The photographic frontispiece illustrates the "Chinese Detention Shed, San Francisco." A scarce work, complete with the original printed wrappers, rarely met with as such in commerce.

        [Photo Album]: White Mountains of New Hampshire

      New Hampshire, 1905. Very Good. Oblong small quarto. Measuring 7.5" x 12". Textured tan leather over stiff paper boards with "Photographs" stamped on the front board. Contains 70 black and white or sepia-toned gelatin silver photographs measuring between 3.5" x 5.5" and 5.75" x 8", some with captions in the negative. Very good photo album with rubbing and edgewear with near fine photographs.A beautiful collection of turn of the century photography primarily of Gorham, New Hampshire taken by C.H. Hobbs. The album was compiled by a professional photographer and contains images that were probably taken with commercial use in mind. Gorham is located in the White Mountains and relies heavily on tourism for town revenue. The album opens with views of Gorham and classic American small town charm including a horse-drawn carriage and a photo of the Alpine Photographic Studio. The photos also show the rolling hills and mountains just beyond the town. One photo shows a winter scene of a road, another shows a small church surrounded by houses and immature pine trees, others show the town from Prospect Ledge just outside the borders giving an entire view of the community. One particularly wonderful photograph shows the Androscoggin River with a photographic effect which makes the water appear painted into the image. Another photo shows the Second Crawford House, the largest resort in the White Mountains at the time, as seen through the Crawford Notch. Following this there is a photo of the Tip Top House, "the oldest surviving building on the summit of Mount Washington" which is believed to be "the oldest extant mountain-top hostelry in the world." Later in the album the photos focus on the various waterfalls of the region as well as lakes and other waterways. The photos also feature Bretton Woods, Poland Springs, and Shelburne, New Hampshire. The end of the album is primarily compiled of portrait photographs including group photos of young girls and cabinet cards featuring fashionably dressed Victorian women.A wonderful collection of exquisite and well-composed photography taken presumably to promote tourism in the White Mountain region of New Hampshire.
