        Amica Poème Dramatique en deux Actes de Paul Bérel Version Rythmique Française de Paul Collin Version rythmique Italienne de Giovani Targioni-Tozzetti Partition Piano et Chant transcrite par Adriano Ariani. Edizione Italiana. [Piano-vocal score]

      Choudens [PN A.C. 13,315], Paris 1905 - Folio. Half textured maroon cloth with textured maroon cloth boards, titling gilt to spine, with original publisher's upper wrapper with an illustration after an etching by [?]R. Aguet printed by Ch. Wittmann, Paris, bound in. 1f. (recto title, verso blank), 1f. (recto cast list and table of contents, verso blank), 183, [i] (blank) pp. Music engraved by Baudon and printed in Paris by E. Dupré.With the composer's autograph inscription signed in black ink to baritone Riccardo Stracciari, who performed the part of Rinaldo in the Italian production of the work, to upper portion of title: "All' indimenticabile 'Rinaldo' al Carissimo Amico Riccardo Stracciari con affetto e con ammirazione P Mascagni" and dated Rome, May 1905.Price of "15 f. Net" printed to upper wrapper. Binding slightly worn, rubbed, and bumped. Upper wrapper slightly worn, stained, and soiled; occasional light soiling to margins; several leaves partially detached at lower inner margins; pp. 135-136 torn at lower corner, slightly affecting notation.Together with:An original role portrait photograph of Stracciari and Biancapelli as Rinaldo and Amica, ca. 203 x 158 mm. Slightly worn; two minor annotations in blue ink and remnants of former mount to verso. Probable First Edition of the first Italian version. Amica, to a libretto by French publisher Paul de Choudens (Bérel was a pseudonym), was first performed in Monte Carlo at the Théâtre du Casino on March 16, 1905, and was an immediate success. The Italian premiere (with an Italian libretto by Mascagni's close collaborator, Giovanni Targioni-Tozzetti) took place on May 13, 1905, with Riccardo Stracciari (1875-1955) as Rinaldo. Mascagni conducted both performances. It was the composer's only opera with a French libretto."Stracciari's mellow, velvety voice, coloured and resonant over its whole range, with an extended and penetrating upper register, made him, between 1905 and 1915, the rival of Titta Ruffo and Pasquale Amato. His repertory included all the great baritone roles and among the dramatic parts he preferred those in Il trovatore, Rigoletto and Aida. But, thanks to a technique characteristic of the best traditions of the 19th century, he excelled in works which allowed him to display his courtly enunciation, smooth singing, elegant phrasing and musical delicacy." Rodolfo Celletti in Grove Music Online.A notable association copy. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

      Jena, Gustav Fischer, 1905-1912, 8, VI, 82, (1) XIV pp., pp.83-571 (4), 36 pp. IV, pp.37-131 X, pp.132-240, 43 farblith. Quart- und Foliotafeln, feinen Halbleinenbänden. Erste Ausgabe! "Mit Abschluß des nun fertiggestellten dritten Supplementheftes [beschließe ich endgültig und übergebe der Öffentlichkeit ein Werk (in 43 Tafeln und 75 Gruppenbildern aus 50 verschiedenen Krankheitsfällen), an dem ich nunmehr seit über 12 Jahren (seit 1899) unausgesetzt geschafft und gefördert habe." Obwohl also ursprünglich eigentlich in erster Linie ein didaktisches Werk geplant war, wandelte dieses sich doch mit der Zeit sehr bald mehr und mehr zu einer fast überwiegend wissenschaftlich monographischen Untersuchung um.Wer nun diesen z. T. doch ganz neuen Feststellungen, der morphologischen Hämatologie genügendes Interesse entgegenbringt, daß er die Mühe nicht scheut, den vielfach irrenden Entwicklungsgang dieses Forschungszweiges in seiner Genese per aspera an der Hand des Autors mitzudurchlaufen und sich in die Entwicklung der Gesetze der Blutzellgenese liebevoll zu vertiefen, der wird bald erkennen, daß schließlich allein die von uns zuerst vertretene und in diesem Werk abbildlich belegte Auffassung von der Zellgenese (genetische Beurteillungsmethode der Morphologie) der Blutzellen," nämlich die Lehre von der Unterscheidung zwischen Alterung und artlicher Entwicklung im allgemeinen, von Altersformen und Zeichen artlicher Differenzzierung im besonderen, nicht nur wohl begründet, sondern zurzeit wohl auch die einzige ist, die imstande ist, jede pathologische Zellform ohne Willkür restlos und befriedigend auf ihren jeweiligen normalen, behinderten oder aberrativen Entwicklungszustand und genetischen Wert hier zu erklären, und so in der Fülle der Gesichte zurechtzuweisen. Nur diese unsere Lehre von der Interferenz der Alterung mit der Differenzierung, nach der jeder morphologische Entwicklungszustand der Zelle das Produkt und die Resultante zweier koeffektiver Faktoren, eben der phyletisch-zellartlichen Differenzierung und der cytoindividuellen ontogenetischen Alterung ist, ferner die Anschauung, daß die artliche Entwicklung ihrerseits wieder analytisch in eine heteroplastische und eine homoplastisch proliferative Modalität zu zerlegen ist (derart, daß in allen Zellstämmen mindestens zwei selbständig alterungsfähige Generationen unterschieden werden müssen), nur diese Lehre und cytogenetische Auffassung ermöglicht es, mit absoluter Sicherheit jede irgendwie aufstoßende Zellform in deskriptiver Hinsicht genauestens zu bestimmen. Die Richtigkeit unserer Auffassung wird über kurz oder lang sicherlich bestätigt werden und die von uns zuerst festgestellte Kenntnis der wahren morphologischen und genetischen Verhältnisse, soweit sie mit unseren jetzigen bloß deskriptiven Methoden überhaupt zu ergründen ist, wird sich durchringen, nur werden andere, die selbst dabei weniger forschend voranzugehen als unsere Ergebnisse nachzuprüfen haben, diese unsere Lehren alsdann in knapperer und konzentrierterer Form vortragen, kommentieren und propagieren können." A. Pappenheim, Vorrede zum Ergänzungsband und Schlußworte zum Gesamtwerk des AtlassesFirst Edition, bound with all original installments wrappers! Artur Pappenheim (1870-1916) "One of the leaders in modern haematology, Pappenheim improved the methods of staining of blood cells" initially studied mathematics and philosophy, but his focus later turned to medicine, and in 1895 received his degree from the University of Berlin. Subsequently he became an assistant to Joseph von Mering at the University of Halle, and afterwards worked under neurologist Ludwig Lichtheim in Königsberg. Later he was an assistant to dermatologist Paul Gerson Unna in Hamburg and to internist Ernst Viktor von Leyden in Berlin. In 1912 he obtained the title of professor. Pappenheim established and published Folia haematologica, a journal dedicated to hematology. He was the author of several books, and postulated that haematopoietic stem cells had the potential for treatment of diseases,[1] however it would be decades before practical research would be done in this area. He died on December 31, 1916 of spotted typhus.Today, the German Society of Hematology and Oncology issues an annual Artur Pappenheim Award for the best work in the fields of hematology or haematological oncology.* Associated eponym: Pappenheim's stain: a methyl green-pyronin staining method used to differentiate between basophilic granules of erythrocytes (red blood cells) and nuclear fragments.

      1905. Hi, This lot is an 1905 Original Hardback Wisden. In Superb condition The first Hardback that Wisden produced was in 1896, this is the tenth year of the hardback and a year I have found hard to find recently, especially in this condition. This is one of the nicest prewar hardbacks I have seen. The boards are very clean with excellent, extremely bright gilt, a couple of tiny marks to the rear. The spine gilt is very bright and original. The hinges are very strong and the yellow pastedowns are amazing, so bright yellow it is hard to express. The photoplate is very good and internaly a nice clean book. As good as mine on my shelf. Hard to fault, if I had to pick something it is that when the book is on the desk gilt up there is a slight inward movement to the top right hand side of the book. A rare Wisden in superb condition (++) and a very nice price.

        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. 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. 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. 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.

        My Life. A Record of Events and Opinions.

      Chapman & Hall. 1905. 8vo. 2 vols. Publisher's dark green cloth, blind fillet border to sides, gilt lettering to uppers and spines; pp. xii + 435 errata slip, viii + 459, 57 illustrations; a little rubbed to extremities, occasional spotting, otherwise very good. Provenance: with presentation bookplate of Alexander Macalister to Westminster College Library Cambridge to front pastedowns, with college library stamps to ffeps and p. 51 of vol I and library plates to rear pastedowns. Alexander Macalister (1844 - 1919) was Professor of Anatomy at Cambridge from 1883 until his death, as the bookplate here records. His most famous work is his Textbook of Human Anatomy (1889), which quickly became the standard work, but he was also renowned as an expert on animal morphology. He was elected FRS in 1881. He attracted some publicity in 1910 as part of the expert team who examined the remains of Henry VI in St. George's Chapel, Windsor to try to determine the cause of death. First edition. Wallace's autobiography is hard to find in this edition, which contains a wealth of illustrations and incidents not found in the later one-volume editions. All of his most significant colleagues and sparring partners, including Darwin, Lyell, Spencer, Huxley and Owen, are recalled in detail, as well as his voyages, his scientific discoveries and his later interests in socialism and spiritualism. These two volumes provide a rounded portrait of this questing, unconventional man.

        Krest'ianskaia voina v Germanii. Perevod s nemetskago G. Kotliara, pod redaktsiei A. Finna-Enotaevskogo [The German Peasants' War. Translated from the Germany by G. Kotliar, edited by A. Finn-Enotaevskii].

      St. Petersburg, Tip. T-va "Narodnaia Pol'za", [1905]. - 128 pp. Staple-stitched blind wrappers (as issued?). 8vo. First Russian translation of Engels's important history of the German Peasants' War of 1525, begun shortly after the German revolutionary events of 1848 and published in a series of articles in Neue Rheinische Zeitung. This was the first work to argue that the reasons for the uprising had been socio-economic, rather than cultural or religious. It also deduced from its failure the need for collaboration between the peasants and the urban proletariat. The present edition contains a translation of Engels's new preface written in 1874, for the third 1875 edition, as well as a preface by the editor, which cites a letter written by Engels shortly before his death. Aleksandr Finn-Enotaevskii (1872-1943) was a noted Russian Marxist who fled abroad after being arrested and collaborated with the Bolsheviks and Lenin himself; after 1917 he was closer to the Menshevik faction. He was prosecuted during the Stalinist repressions of the 1930s. - Not in the Bernstein-Souvarine catalog. This copy has a curious provenance: an undocumented Russian student organization in a small Saxon town, possibly allied with revolutionary tendencies. Rare; KVK and OCLC only locate the copies at Bibliothèque de Genève and IISG. Not at the Russian State or National Libraries. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        The Voyage of the "Discovery".

      London: Charles Scribner's Sons; Smith, Elder, & Co.,, 1905. 2 volumes, large octavo. Contemporary blue half morocco for J. & E. Bumpus Ltd of Oxford Street, spines lettered in gilt in compartments, blue cloth sides, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt, others untrimmed, blue silk page markers. Photogravure portrait frontispiece, title pages printed in red and black, 12 colour plates, 158 half-tone photographic plates, 12 further black and white plates, 5 double-page panoramas of which 4 from photographs, 5 maps of which one double-page and 2 folding in end-pockets. With the bookplate of Annie Cowdray (d. 1932), wife of the 1st Viscount Cowdray, to the front pastedowns. Spines lightly toned, a couple of faint marks to vol. I, foxing to edges; an excellent set. First edition, second impression, of Scott's official narrative of his first Antarctic expedition, an "elaborate and handsome publication" (Taurus) and a classic of the genre. The 1901–4 voyage of the Discovery was the first scientific expedition to pass two consecutive winters at a high latitude in Antarctica, and made the first extensive land journeys into the interior of the continent; a farthest south of 82°17' was achieved on 30 December 1902. The trip was the beginning of the mutual antipathy between Scott and Shackleton, partly owing to Scott's forcing Shackleton's early return to England on account of illness. Among the civilian scientists was Dr Edward Adrian Wilson, Scott's close friend and confidant on this and his last expedition, where he too was to die; a talented artist, he also contributed watercolours for the attractive frontispieces and several of the plates, including all those in colour. With twenty-eight sledge journeys accomplished, the ice sheet explored, and a comprehensive scientific programme completed, the expedition was a triumph, although the failure of Scott's dogs was an ominous portent.
