        Wonder Map of the Wonder Mining District...Map title: Revised Map of U.S. Patent & Location Surveys in Wonder Mining District Churchill County Nevada

      Wonder, Nevada.: D. H. Blossom.. 1907.. Color folding map attached to card stock covers, 7 1/2 x 4 inches unfolding to 30 x 32 1/2 inches, depicting the Wonder Mining District [Nevada]. There are several breaks in the folds of the fragile paper, while a dogleg tear at the top of the map (archival tape repair) measures 2 x 2 1/2 inches. A congruent tear in the top margin measures two inches. The map shows the modest Wonder townsite situated in a vast landscape of mining claims, depicted in various colors. The Index on the map documents well over 100 claims. Wonder flourished between 1906 and 1919, with a 1907 population estimated at 1200 persons. The sum of $6,350,000 is attached to the Wonder District's recorded production in gold and silver. Web resources regarding Wonder and its history can be had at "Nevada Mining and You," a pdf created by the Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology. (The pdf provides a photo of the Wonder townsite circa 1910); also, the Wikipedia entry "Wonder, Nevada" provides useful details regarding the mining town. See also Hugh Shamberger's "The Story of Wonder, Churchill County, Nevada," (Nevada Historical Press, 1974). There is only one listing for Blossom's map on WorldCat. This scarce map, of considerable interest with regard to Nevada mining history, is in very good clean condition, with issues noted. .

        Anatomie und Ätiologie der Genitalprolapse beim Weibe.

      . Wien und Leipzig, Wilhelm Braumüller, 1907, 8°, XII, 273, (1) pp., 44 Abb. und 60 Tafeln; feiner Leinenband mit eingebundener Titelbroschur; eigenhändige Widmung "Herrn Prof.D. R. Paltauf in dankbarer Verehrung die Verfasser.". Erste Ausgabe- Bedeutendes Widmungsexemplar an Paltauf! - - "1907 gelang Halban und Tandler der zweite große Wurf: das Buch "Anatomie und Ätiologie der Genitalprolapse beim Weibe" wurde ein großer wissenschaftlicher Erfolg. Es ist Zuckerkandl zum 25jährigen Professorenjubiläum gewidmet. Die drei Hauptthemen sind: die normale Lage und Fixation der weiblichen Beckenorgane, die Anatomie und Ätiologie des Prolapses und seine Therapie mittels Pessar und Operation. Die Anregung ging von Einsichten aus, die Tandler bei seiner Lehrtätigkeit von der Topographie und dem Mechanismus dieser Organe gewonnen hatte. Die Zusammenarbeit der Fachleute - so kündet das Vorwort - hat durch die Beobachtung der Topographie zur Klärung, wozu kunstgerechte Gliederung und sorgsame klinische Untersuchung kam, geführt. In diesen einfachen Worten ist Tandlers wissenschaftstheoretische Anschauung niedergelegt. - Stolz vermerken die Autoren, daß sie durch jahrelanges Suchen großes Material zusammenbekommen hätten, "ein so großes anatomisches Material dürfte wohl noch niemals Substrat einer wissenschaftlichen Untersuchung über den Genitalprolaps gewesen sein". Das waren die Vorteile im "Mekka der Medizin", das Grundlagenmaterial stammte von Haberda, Alexander Kolisko (1857-1918), Paltauf, Sternberg, Weichselbaum. Auch der Rezensent in der "Wiener klinischen Wochenschrift" hob die 40Fälle von Genitalprolapsen hervor, die es erlaubt haben, die Prolapsfrage durch die vorliegende, jeglicher bloß theoretischer Deduktionen barer Beweisführung nicht nur in neue Bahnen zu lenken, sondern "allem Anscheine nach" zu lösen. Tandlers und Haibans Arbeit basierte also auf anatomischen Forschungen, wie sie in diesem Umfang noch nicht ausgeführt worden waren. - Wie sah nun die Lösung des Problems aus? Die Ätologie des Genitalprolaps war nicht eindeutig geklärt und in der Diskussion verschiedener Ansichten kamen die Autoren zu dem Schluß, daß in der Erschlaffung der Fixationsmittel der Organe kein besonders prädisponierendes Moment für die Entstehung eines Vorfalles zu erblicken wäre. Hingegen entsteht ein Prolaps wie eine Hernie dann, "wenn der Hiatus genitalis im Beckenboden nicht suffizient geschlossen ist, sondern eine Bruchpforte darstellt. Der gesteigerte Abdominaldruck preßt alle Organe oder Organteile, welche in den Druckbereich dieser Bruchpforte fallen, durch dieselbe hinaus. Kommt ein Organ ganz in den Bereich des Hiatus genitalis, so hat es am Beckenboden gar keine Stütze mehr und wird vollkommen vorgepreßt. Fällt nur ein Teil dieses Organs in diesen Bereich, während ein anderer Teil außerhalb desselben liegt, so wird der erstere durch den gesteigerten Abdominaldruck vorgepreßt, der letztere aber durch denselben Druck gegen die Unterlage gepreßt und dadurch fixiert". Das alles wird mit Experimenten belegt, wozu sie ein Phantom anfertigen ließen. Behilflich waren hierbei der Direktor der Österreichisch-Amerikanischen Gummifabrik, Edgar Herbst und Anton Lampa (1868-1938), mit dem die theoretisch-physikalischen Gesetze besprochen wurden. Hier zeigt sich Tandlers Vorliebe für technische Behelfe, mit denen er den Beweis für ein wissenschaftliches Problem antreten konnte. - Das Verhältnis zwischen Tandler und Halban soll sich nach den Veröffentlichungen bis zur Feindseligkeit abgekühlt haben." Karl Sablik, Julius Tandler: Mediziner und Sozialreformer (2010), p.27

        Cornelis Cornelisz Roobacker's scheepsjournaal Gamron-Basra (1645); de eerste reis der nederlanders door de perzische golf. In: Tijdschrift van het Koninklijk Nederlandsch Aardrijkskundig Genootschap.

      Leiden, E. J. Brill, 1907.. 8vo. (289)-405, 406-545 pp. With 2 folding maps and a folding table. Original printed wrappers.. First edition. - In 1645, Captain Cornelis Roobacker set out from Bandar Abbas with two small Dutch ships for the first trading mission to Basra, which could only be reached with small vessels in the shallow waters of the upper end of the Gulf. Three logbooks of this expedition have survived in the Dutch General State Archives; the only one of these to be published is the logbook no. 280a, here edited for the first and only time by A. Hotz. Among the plates are a modern map of the Gulf region as well as a 17th century Dutch nautical chart which the editor errouneously attributed to Roobacker. "Roobacker's ships had English charts on board, but Roobacker complained that they were very inaccurate [... He] made a chart of his travels between Laraq and Basra, with marks of depths and accurate notes on geographic latitude. This chart shows his progress up to Bubiyan" (Slot, The Origins of Kuwait [1991], p. 18). - Occasional slight foxing; spine broken; plates loose. - B. J.

        Original Sketch Book of Charles Waltensperger - Sketches in Spain

      Hardcover. Twenty-seven pencil sketches of life in Spain (one double page) in the early 1900s. The first sketch, of Seville, is dated April 1907. Waltensperger (1870-1931) is known for interior genres and as an illustrator and painter in oils. This sketchbook contains views of Spanish towns (Seville, Toledo) , of country life, of architecture (the Alhambra) , of people observed going about their lives. At least a few of the sketches suggest they were intended as preliminary to paintings. The artist's craft and discretion before his subjects are both immediately apparent. The binding is shaken in places: a few of the sketches are disbound. The carrying strap in gray ribbon is still attached and intact. .

        Stories from The Arabian Nights

      London: Hodder and Stoughton,, 1907. Retold by Laurence Housman. With Drawings by Edmund Dulac. Quarto. Original full vellum, titles and decorations to spine and front board in gilt with blue highlights, dark green endpapers, yellow silk ties, top edge gilt, others untrimmed. Colour frontispiece and 49 similar plates tipped in on dark green paper, all with captioned tissue guards. Vellum lightly scuffed and a touch soiled, front board slightly bowed, occasional spotting to tissue guards. An excellent copy. Signed limited edition, number 60 of 350 copies numbered and signed by the artist. It was this book that first announced Dulac's status as a popular artist, confirming him as "a direct challenger in the illustrated gift book market to the work of Arthur Rackham. Susan Lambert noted that, compared to Rackham, Dulac 'made greater use of the breakthrough in four-colour printing, conceiving and modelling his pictures in colour rather than adding colours to a linear design'" (ODNB).

LI - LIV; a good copy. First edition, first impression of Hungarian-born Aurel Stein's (1869-1943) account of his first expedition to Chinese Turkestan (now Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region) in 1900-1. His findings revealed the extraordinary diversity of cultural forces at work in Khotan and its environs, situated as they were on the Silk Road. The influence of Buddhism was already known but Stein demonstrated the importance of Indian languages and culture in administration and daily life until at least the eighth century CE. Coins provide evidence for effective Chinese rule, Buddhist paintings betray Persian influence, while manuscripts and graffiti attest to the further presence of Tibetan culture. This work was also the first to demonstrate the spread of Graeco-Buddhist art forms from north-west India to Chinese Turkestan and China proper and contains eight appendices edited by Stein's peers, including D. S. Margoliouth, Laudian Professor of Arabic at Oxford, and noted sinologist Edouard Chavannes. Exceedingly rare in commerce, the sole three auction records for this book after 1949 pertain instead to the 1939 Chinese reprint in printed wrappers.
