        The Flower Book. Reproductions of Thirty Eight Watercolour Designs by Edward Burne-Jones.

      Reproduced by Henry Piazza et Cie for the Fine Art Society, London 1905 - 38 stunning colour plates all appearing in a circle of about 15cms in diameter. One of 300 copies (this no.92) with the number in manuscript with the monogram of the Fine Art Society (the publisher), also written in ink. Printed in red and green except for the facsimile list of flowers made by Burne-Jones at the rear which is printed in black. Large 4to., this copy beautifully bound at the time at the WH Smith bindery under Douglas Cockerell in full dark green morocco with gilt lettering on spine and upper cover with gilt borders. A very handsome copy, with some expert repair to the binding and first few leaves. Georgiana Burne-Jones arranged for this reproduction of Burne-Jones's exquisite watercolours after his death. He did these images for his own pleasure and they were not originally intended to be seen. They were fantasy interpretations of flowers and the subjects which their names suggest. Many of these exquisite images draw on Arthurian and classical legend, in true Pre-Raphaelite style, as well as the Bible. It is thought that because Burne-Jones did these for himself they may contain a fuller expression of himself than exists elsewhere in his work. Exquisitely bound at the time at the important WH Smith bindery in full Cockerell style. Many of the Flower Books remain loose and unbound. A very good, handsome copy. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Die normale und pathologische Anatomie des Hüftgelenks und Oberschenkels in röntgenographischer Darstellung.

      Röfo Erg., 12. (Atlas d. normalen u. patholog. Anatomie in typischen Röntgenbildern, hrsg. v. Albers-Schönberg). - Hamburg, Lucas Gräfe & Sillem, 1905, 4, 3 l., 152 pp., 35 Abb., 12 orig. photograph. Taf., OLnBd. Alban Köhler was born in Pesta, Germany. He was educated at the universities of Berlin, Erlangen and Freiburg im Breisgau. He was conferred doctor of medicine in Freiburg in 1897. The following year he came to Dresden to work with the pathologist Christian Georg Schmorl (1861-1932) in the St. Joseph-Hospital, but later moved on to the surgeon Friedrich Cramer (1847-1903) in Wiesbaden, where he decided to devote himself to the roentgenology. In 1903 he settled as a radiologist in Wiesbaden, and soon became one of the best known physicians in this new speciality. Köhler was concerned with bringing together the two disciplines og radiology and surgery, and published a work on this theme. He also published on tuberculosis of the lungs as well as on radiologically recognisable diseases of the skeleton. He introduced technical modifications to achieve improved X-ray visualisation of the heart. In 1905 he was a co-founder of the Deutsche Röntgengesellschaft in Berlin. During April 13/14, 1912, he was president of the 8th Roentgen Congress in Berlin In 1913 he was appointed Professor h.c. in Wiesbaden. In 1933 he received the Hermann Rieder medal (named for Hermann Rieder, 1858-1932). His works are among the most important of the first decades of radiology.

        The Fall Of Torngak Or The Moravian Mission On The Coast Of Labrador

      QUITE RARE FIRST EDITION. HARDCOVER. No Dust jacket if originally issued. The Fall of Torngak, Or The Moravian Mission On The Coast of Labrador, by Rev. J.W. Davey. VERY GOOD CONDITION (Please see our photos). With 20 Illustrations and map. 5 1/4 X 7 3/4, 288 pages plus adverts. Adverts are tanning. Published 1905 by S.W. Partridge & Co. 8 and 9 Paternoster Row -and- Moravian Mission Agency 32 Fetter Lane, London. PREFACE: "In the lonely retreat of Abloriak Bay, on the western coast of the Labrador peninsula, rise in solitary grandeur the great black mountains called the Torngaets. The rocky precipices which look grimly down upon the shadowed water have assumed grotesque and fantastic shapes, presenting to the imagination the jagged ruins of some ancient fallen city. Far up on the summit of one such precipice looms the black and yawning entrance to some deep cavern, shaped like the gable end of a building. This was the reputed dwelling-place of Torngak, the spirit of evil. The scenery all around is is extremely wild and weird; and when the terror-stricken native found himself driven by opposing forces within the range of this dread influence he fastened, in self-defense, the inflated intestine of a seal o a tent pole fixed to one side of his boat, and hung upon his breast a raven's claw..." An historically and sociologically important work. A valuable addition to any archive or special collection. ADDITIONALY, we have purchased and included a small map, dating from 1885, of Moravian missions on the Labrador Coast.

        Sailing Alone Around the World.

      New York: The Century Co, 1905. First edition, early printing of "the finest single-handed adventure story yet written" (Seafarer).. Octavo, original blue cloth. Pictorially stamped in silver and green, top edge gilt, frontispiece of The Spray. Inscribed by author on the front free endpaper, "To Ira E. Lute Joshua Slocum Sloof Spray Camden NJ May 23, 1906." In fine condition. Illustrated by Thomas Fogarty and George Varian. An exceptional signed copy. Sailing Alone Around the World was published by Century Company in 1900. The sailing memoir records Slocum's amusing experience as the first person to sail around the world alone. National Fisherman called it "[a] literary gem, adroitly and engagingly written," but interest extends beyond mere sea-aficionados. Excitement for the voyage was universal, and Slocum was awaited by admirers at his ports. To these he gave popular lectures and lantern-slide shows upon his arrival, including the English writers Edwin Arnold and Arthur Ransome. The memoir was first published in installments before its popularity became such that it was issued in lavishly illustrated book form. Slocum conveys an appreciably casual, almost self-deprecating, style. Contemporary reviews speak as well of it even now as "one of the most readable books in the whole library of adventure" (Sports Illustrated). "There is so much to this book that it is not surprising that it is has been continually in print since 1889..this book has literary merit, thoughtful and beautifully written and packed with incident" (Nautical Magazine).

Many of the photos show young men and women posing around lakes and in trees enjoying the Indiana summer with humorous captions such as "the smile that won't come off," and "please let me smoke." One page reads, "Indiana rah / Indiana rah rah / Gloriana Indiana rah." Nine of the photos are small panoramic views of the surrounding natural beauty of Indiana with rolling hills and trees as well as a horse drawn carriage and small cabins. A few photos show tennis practice and the campus as well as picnics and rock climbing in the area. The final pages show an Indiana family posing around their home.

        THE TALE OF MRS. TIGGY-WINKLE

      1905 - London: Frederick Warne and Co., 1905. Original green paper-covered boards with cover pictorial onlay. First Edition, first or second printing (indistinguishable), of this much-loved tale of the hedgehog washerwoman. "Although THE TALE OF MRS. TIGGY-WINKLE was the sixth of Beatrix Potter's books to be published, the story had actually been carefully planned as far back as 1901, although it was not actually written down until the following year" [Linder].~There are known to have been two printings in (and dated) 1905, but there are no known differences between the two; the third printing was not until 1906 (so dated). This copy is in green paper-covered boards (some are in brown, and some are in decorated cloth -- no priority). It is in near-fine condition (slight fading of the spine as usual with this shade of green, a hint of wear at the corners of the spine); atypically, the pictorial endpapers are clean and entirely intact. A curiously scarce title. Linder p. 425; Quinby 8. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Haunted and the Haunters; or, The House and the Brain

      New York: Fredk. A. Stokes C, n.d. [c. 1905]. First American Edition, the rare first separate book publication of this "classic, perhaps the best haunted-house story ever written." (Sullivan) Small, slim 8vo: 57,[3 blank, advertisement, blank]pp. Original chromolithographed wrappers, flat spine lettered in black, back panel blank, housed in folding black cloth portfolio. Ownership label of Chicago bibliophile Larry Solomon on portfolio paste down, manuscript ex libris of Mildred W. Wilson (presumably, the southern writer, 1918-2013) on title page. A superb survival: very light wear to bottom edges, never affecting lettering or design; small corner loss on pp. 55-56, not affecting text; slight overall toning; pages clean and bright without foxing, browning or marks. Christensen, Edward Bulwer-Lytton, p. 176. Sullivan, p. 63. Clute and Grant, p. 249. Bleiler (Checklist), p. 34. Survey of Modern Fantasy Literature II, pp. 698-700. ¶ 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). "Whatever the fate of his novels, this tale will keep Bulwer-Lytton's name alive." N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition.

        Oliver Wendell Holmes Autograph Letter Signed.

      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.

        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
