        Répertoire historique et biographique de la Gazette de France, depuis l'origine jusqu'à la Révolution. 1631-1790.

      Paris, Henri Leclerc, 1902-1906. - Quatre volumes in-4 de XVIII - (208) - (184) - (224) et (235)ff. Texte réparti sur 2 colonnes. Ex-libris armorié du comte et de la comtesse Christian de Bertier de Sauvigny. Demi-chagrin maroquiné vert à coins, dos à nerfs, titre doré, date et petites armes des Bertier de Sauvigny en pied, têtes dorées. Reliure de l'époque. Bel exemplaire. Tirage à 325 exemplaires numérotés, signé par Granges de Surgères. N° 293 sur vélin teinté. Le marquis de Granges de Surgères entendait reprendre et compléter la publication précédente, la Table de la Gazette de France dirigée par Jacques Genet de 1766 à 1768, en supprimant les erreurs et les répétitions. Cette publication remarquable qui intégrait aussi les références aux Extraordinaires et aux Suppléments de la Gazette reste, comme la Table ou Abrégé, essentiellement biographique et comporte dans une première annexe de 53 pages du volume 4 un Index des noms patronymiques et des surnoms très utile pour débrouiller les incertitudes et les variations des noms nobles. La Table des matières de la table de 158 pages de la fin du tome 4 est un exceptionnel instrument de recherches biographiques. Elle recense dans le texte du Répertoire les lieux des batailles ou opérations militaires où les personnages cités se sont illustrés, les emplois exercés, les institutions qui les ont accueillis (régiments, ordres religieux, académies ) : cette table fournit donc une masse d’informations bien ordonnées et elle élargit notablement les services que rend le Répertoire, a priori uniquement biographique.

Original wrappers. ?The nerve center (ganglion cells) is shown to be the one necessary factor in the formation of the peripheral nerve. When it is removed from the body of the embryo the latter fails to develop. When it is transplanted to abnormal positions in the body of the embryos it then gives rise to nerves which may follow paths, where normally no nerves run, and likewise when the tissues surrounding the center are changed entirely, nerves proceeding from that center may develop as normally. The nerve is therefore a product of the ganglion cell? Ross Harrison. Small chip bottom edge of front cover. A very good copy. Rare offprint. * . Very Good. 1906.

        Commission D'Inspection Des Lazarets Sur Le Lazaret D'Abou-Saad, Wasta

      Constantinople, 1906. 1st Edition. Blue cloth with gilt titles. Cloth darkened at the edges, wear to spine ends, small area of damp staining to the bottom head of spine. Contents fine. Folding maps, black and white ills ( 23 ). French text. 50 pages plus indices. Very scarce.THE lazaret of the port of Jeddah is commonly known as the Abu-Saad lazaret, that being the name of the principal of the three islands upon which it is built. The others are named Wasta and Abu-Ali. The so-called "port" of Jeddah is merely an anchorage, or rather two anchorages, an "inner" " and an " outer port," among the shoals and coral reefs which characterise the whole of this coast. These reefs are very irregular but their long axes run more or less parallel with the coast. The" outer port " is about two and a quarter sea-miles from the shore and the "inner port" about one and a quarter miles in a straight line, but no boat, however shallow its draught, could reach the shore by following a straight line, and the only available channel takes an extremely zigzag course among the reefs. From the inner port to the island of Abu-Saad the distance is three and three-quarters sea-miles, from 'Abu-Saad to Wasta it is one and three-quarters miles, and from Wasta to Abu-Ali one and a quarter miles. The three islands lie to the south of the town and are roughly about two miles from the mainland. Ships in quarantine remain in one or other of the anchorages at Jeddah and their pilgrims are transferred to the lazaret in sambouks. The Abu-Saad lazaret was brought into existence in 1882 as a "succursale" " of the much larger institution at Camaran. It is intended for the use of ships carrying not more than 5 per cent. of their net tonnage coming either from the north or from the south. Ships with a larger number of pilgrims are liable to be sent to Camaran, but this usually happens only in the case of ships from the south. The latter are always subject to from five to ten days' quarantine, and they have in any case to pass close to Camaran on their voyage to the Hedjaz. But ships from the north are only liable to quarantine when Egypt or some of the countries on the Mediterranean are infected with plague or cholera. This happened in 1902-03, in 1905, and again in 1906-07 (the Haj just completed).

        Text in Russian] Ispoved' [A Confession]

      Posrednik, Moskva 1906 - Autobiographical essay on the author's spiritual evolution penned shortly after Tolstoy turned to Christian anarchism in his late-middle age. Inspired by his reading of Schopenhauer's "The World as Will and Representation," the author describes emerging from a midlife crisis and a break from his literary past. Tolstoy was raised in the Greek Orthodox Church, though by his teenage years was no longer practicing his childhood faith. Instead, the author writes early on in this essay, "I endeavoured to reach perfection in intellectual attainments" (as quoted from Thomas Sharper Knowlson's Leo Tolstoy: A Biographical and Critical Study (1904), p. 42). By late middle age the prospect of reaching literary and intellectual perfection no longer appealed to Tolstoy, who instead turned towards spiritual introspection. As he describes it, his melancholia immediately lessened when he said "God is life," though the author would not write of his Christian beliefs until the publication of What I Believe (also known as My Religion) in 1884. The influence of Tolstoy's religious works have been far-reaching, especially in their bid for nonviolent resistance, the most notable reader and practitioner arguably being Mahatma Gandhi, who wrote to Tolstoy after reading his Letter to a Hindu (1908).The present work would eventually serve as an introduction to a series of three works on religion which Tolstoy himself considered to be his best and most important work. First published in Russkaya Mysl, no. 5, in 1882, Ispoved was almost immediately banned by the Orthodox Church censorship. The text resurfaced again in Geneva in 1884, though it would not be until this 1906 edition that the piece appeared in Russia in book form, published by Posrednik, Tolstoy's non-profit publishing house. OCLC locates no copies in North America as of July, 2016.

        [Text in Russian] Ispoved' [A Confession]

      Moskva: Posrednik, 1906. First Russian Edition. Autobiographical essay on the author's spiritual evolution penned shortly after Tolstoy turned to Christian anarchism in his late-middle age. Inspired by his reading of Schopenhauer's "The World as Will and Representation," the author describes emerging from a midlife crisis and a break from his literary past. Tolstoy was raised in the Greek Orthodox Church, though by his teenage years was no longer practicing his childhood faith. Instead, the author writes early on in this essay, "I endeavoured to reach perfection in intellectual attainments" (as quoted from Thomas Sharper Knowlson's Leo Tolstoy: A Biographical and Critical Study (1904), p. 42). By late middle age the prospect of reaching literary and intellectual perfection no longer appealed to Tolstoy, who instead turned towards spiritual introspection. As he describes it, his melancholia immediately lessened when he said "God is life," though the author would not write of his Christian beliefs until the publication of What I Believe (also known as My Religion) in 1884. The influence of Tolstoy's religious works have been far-reaching, especially in their bid for nonviolent resistance, the most notable reader and practitioner arguably being Mahatma Gandhi, who wrote to Tolstoy after reading his Letter to a Hindu (1908). The present work would eventually serve as an introduction to a series of three works on religion which Tolstoy himself considered to be his best and most important work. First published in Russkaya Mysl, no. 5, in 1882, Ispoved was almost immediately banned by the Orthodox Church censorship. The text resurfaced again in Geneva in 1884, though it would not be until this 1906 edition that the piece appeared in Russia in book form, published by Posrednik, Tolstoy's non-profit publishing house. OCLC locates no copies in North America as of July, 2016. Slim octavo (20cm.); original green photo-illustrated wrappers; 85pp. Wrappers rather faded and toned along extremities, general wear from handling, small dampstain to upper cover, else About Very Good overall. Contemporary ownership signature to upper cover.

      Houghton Mifflin and Co. [at the Riverside Press], Boston & New York 1906 - Manuscript Edition, limited to 600 sets signed by the publisher in vol. I, (this is set no. 339); 20 volumes, 8vo, 3 portraits of Thoreau, folding map, 101 photographic illustrations by Herbert W. Gleason, plus an additional 40 photographic plates which serve as frontispieces to this leather-bound issue (not in the cloth-bound copies), 20 of which are hand-colored; publisher's uncommon three-quarter red morocco, gilt-decorated spines, t.e.g.; fine, bright set with no fading. The red morocco binding is uncommon; sets in leather usually appear in green or brown morocco; the usual binding is green buckram with printed labels on the spines. The celebrated Manuscript Edition of Thoreau's writings, with the five principal works, other essays, miscellaneous pieces, poems, one volume of letters (edited by F. B. Sanborn), and 15 volumes of Thoreau's Journal (edited by Bradford Torrey). The manuscript leaf in this volume, approximately 175 words, is from Excursions, A Yankee in Canada, chapter four, "The Walls of Quebec" (pages 69-70, this edition), which Emerson edited for publication in 1863. This leaf contains about a half dozen interlinear editorial corrections in pencil which possibly may be in Emerson's hand. Thoreau writes: [The comparative wealth of the Church in this country was] "apparent; for in this village we did not see one good house besides. They were all humble cottages; and yet this appeared to me a more imposing structure than any church in Boston. But I am no judge of these things. Reentering Quebec through St. John's Gate, we took a caleche in Market Square for the Falls of the Chaudiere, about nine miles south-west of the city, for which we were to pay so much, beside forty sous for tolls. The driver, as usual, spoke French only. The number of these vehicles is very great for so small a town. They are like one of our chaises that has lost its top, only stouter and longer in the body, with a seat for the driver where the dasher is with us, and broad leather ears on each side to protect the riders from the wheel and keep children from falling out. They had" [an easy jaunting look.]. Allen p. 52; BAL 20145; Borst B3. BAL notes that vol. I-V are reprints, but vols. VI-XX contain new material by Thoreau, and represent the first complete edition of the Journals. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]
