        A SOUTH SEA LEGEND.

      - Translated by P. Hackett. Pp. [28](text on rectos only), handwritten, with hand-coloured pictorial title page, one large illuminated initial and marginal decoration, plus several small rubricated initials; impl. 8vo; sewn within hand tooled limp leather wrappers with decorative stitching to edges, the upper wrapper lettered in blind and decorated with a hand-coloured repeat of the title page illustration; n.p., n.d. Possibly unpublished; not in Miller & Macartney. *Born in Western Australia, Patricia Hackett (1908-1963) was a lawyer and amateur actress who spent most of her life in Adelaide. She was admitted to the South Australian Bar in 1930, and in 1936 was invited to do some legal work at Tulagi in the Solomon Islands. For the next few years she spent three to four months each year in the Solomons, at M'Bangai, a small island in the harbour of Tulagi, which she leased for ninety-nine years after taking out a practising law certificate in Fiji - the first female lawyer to do so. She was evacuated from M'Bangai after Pearl Harbour and never returned, but she remained nostalgic for the Solomons for the rest of her life, and wrote a number of poems about the islands and their people. In 1938 she published a volume of poetry, \i These Little Things , illustrated by Rex Wood. Her later poetry remained unpublished and she destroyed most of it a few years before her death. It seems likely that she produced (and presumably illustrated and bound) this volume herself, perhaps during the time that she was visiting the Islands. Hackett is also remembered for her theatrical work in Adelaide, particularly with the Torch Theatre, which she founded in 1934. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Chirurgie des Gehirns und Rückenmarks nach eigenen Erfahrungen.

      Berlin, Urban & Schwarzenberg, 1908-1911, 4, XXXVI, 828 pp. mit 185 Illustrationen im Text und 62 farbigen Tafeln, zwei feine Halbledereinbände mit roten Rückenschildern und Rückenvergoldung unbeschnittenes Widmungs-Exemplar. Erste Ausgabe - Bedeutendes Widmungsexemplar: "Herrn Geheimrat Prof. Dr. (Paul) von Bruns / Hochachtungsvoll / Berlin 3.X.08 der Verfasser." *)Fedor Krause (1857-1937) ist einer der großen Pioniere der deutschen Neurochirurgie. Sein seltenes und gesuchtes Frühwerk, mit superben, großzügigen Illustrationen ausgestattet, ist eines der überragenden Grundlagenwerke moderner neurochirurgischer Forschung. Mit Macewen und Cushing entwickelte er die Neurochirurgie zu einem Spezialfach der Medizin."Wenn man von Fedor Krause's (1857-1937) Habilitationsarbeit über die malignen Neurome im Jahre 1887 absieht, begann seine systematische Beschäftigung mit der Chirurgie des Centralnervensystems Anfang der 90er Jahre mit den Studien, die mit der Trigeminusneuralgie in Zusammenhang standen." "1892 hat dann Krause den bis auf den heutigen Tag gültigen Weg zum Ganglion Gasseri angegeben: entlang der Schädelbasis, extradural, Anheben der geschlossen bleibenden Dura, nach Versorgung der A.meningea media direktes Treffen auf den 3. und 2. Ast und dann übersichtliche Freilegung des Ganglion. Zunächst begnügte er sich mit der Durchschneidung des 3. und 2. Astes, und als daraufhin die Erfolge noch nicht genügend waren, führte er 1893 die erste Ganglionresektion aus. Als er 1896 seine berühmte Monographie über die Neuralgie des Trigeminus nebst Anatomie und Histologie des Nerven veröffentlichte, lagen dieser Arbeit 14 Ganglionexstirpationen zugrunde." In seinem 1911 erschienen Werk Die Chirurgie des Gehirns und Rückenmarks" wurde über 70 Ganglionexstirpationen berichtet. Der Entstehung und Verhütung der Keratitis neuroparalytica hatte er dabei besondere Aufmerksamkeit zugewandt." "Im Jahre 1897 suchte eine 63jährige Patientin Krause auf wegen dauernder, unerträglicher Ohrgeräusche. Dieser Krankheitsfall veranlaßte ihn, zu erwägen, ob nicht analog der Entfernung der Trigeminuswurzel auch der Akusticus zu durchtrennen sei. Am 14. Juli 1898 wurde dann nach eingehenden vorausgegangenen Studien die hintere Felsenbeinfläche nach Eröffnung der hinteren Schädelgrube freigelegt und der Akusticus durchtrennt die Patientin wurde von ihrem quälenden Zustand befreit. Durch diesen Eingriff wurde die Grundlage für den klassischen Weg zur Freilegung der hinteren Felsenbeinfläche und in den Kleinhirnbrückenwinkel geschaffen. Akusticus, Facialis, Trigeminus, sowie Glossopharyngeus, Vagus und Acessorius können in ihrem Austrittgebiet auf diese Weise freigelegt werden, ganz besonders aber dient dieser Weg der Entfernung der im Kleinhirnbrückenwinkel gelegenen Neubildungen. (Beherend)" Noch im Jahre 1900 wurde in Altna bei einem 20jährigen Techniker nach einem Suicidversuch eine Revolverkugel vom rechten Orbitaldach operativ entfernt. Der Operationsweg wurde dabei transfrontal gewählt. Noch nach 7 Jahren wird der Patient beschwerdefrei gefunden. Da es Krause bei dieser Methode erstmalig gelang, den Opticus vom Chiasma bis zum Foramen opticum zur Darstellung zu bringen, lag es nahe, die gleiche Methode zu versuchen, um einen Weg zur Hypophyse aufzufinden." Fernerhin 1903 und 1907 "unseres Wissens die ersten in der deutschen Literatur beschriebenen, mit Erfolg operierten Kranken mit einem Gehirn-Angiom." 1909 wurde von Oppenheim und Krause "erstmalig das Krankheitsbild und die Operation eines großen medialen, lumbalen Bandscheibenprolapses beschrieben, der nach der damaligen Auffassung mit Enchondrom bezeichnet wurde (Behrend)." Weiterhin ist hervorzuheben eine Operation, die Krause am 23. Juni 1911 an einem von Oppenheim überwiesenen Patienten durchführte. Der 30jährige Kranke bot eine doppelseitige Stauungspupille und eine Kleinhirnsymptomatik." "Bei der Operation wurden beide Kleinhirnhälften freigelegt, der Sinus occipitalis doppelt unterbrochen und auseinandergeklappt. Im Oberwurmgebiet trat ein körniger, rötlich - gelber Tumor von Walnußgröße zwischen beiden Kleinhirnhälften zutage, der allmählich entwickelt und abgetragen werden konnte. Nach seiner Entfernung zeigte sich der 4. Ventrikel breit offen, so daß man die Rautengrube an ihrer charakteristischen Form erkannte und in voller Deutlichkeit übersah. Somit hatte der Tumor im Dach des 4. Ventrikels seinen Sitz gehabt und dieses, d.h. das Velum medullate post., war mit entfernt worden. (cit. nach F.Krause, 1911). Mikroskopisch: Endotheliom. Der Patient überstand den Eingriff. - Der Otologe Güttich schrieb in seinem Nachruf auf Krause: ... als erster Mensch hat Krause in den 4. Ventrikel des lebenden Menschen hineingesehen." "Das bekannteste Werk von Fedor Krause ist Die Chirurgie des Gehirns und Rückenmarks nach eigenen Erfahrungen. Die Eigenart dieses zweibändigen Werkes besteht in der ausführlichen klinischen und operationstechnischen Mitteilung einzelner Krankheitsfälle. Daneben werden didaktisch die von Krause entwickelten Methoden der Trepanation und Laminektomie dargestellt unter Berücksichtigung anderer Autoren. Aus den ausführlich angebenen Krankengeschichten geht hervor, daß bei vielen wichtigen Eingriffen Oppenheim maßgeblich an der Diagnosestellung und der Besprechung über die Einzelheiten des operativen Vorgehens beteiligt war." C.M. Behrend, F.Krause in K.Kolle, Große Nervenärzte, 3.Bd., 199-206.*) Paul von Bruns -(1846-1916) Professor der Chirurgie in Tübingen 1881-1909. "PAUL VON BRUNS hat ein großes literarisches Werk hinterlassen. Er war Mitherausgeber der "Neuen Deutschen Chirurgie2, außerdem gehörte er unter die Herausgeber des Handbuches der Praktischen Medizin. Er gab die "Beiträge zur Klinischen Chirurgie" heraus, die zunächst nur für Tübingen gedacht waren, bald aber für ganz Deutschland und das Ausland Bedeutung gewannen. Besonders hat er sich mit der Kriegschirurgie befaßt und die Geschoßeinwirkungen studiert.Sein Name ist in dem Bruns-Bastianischen Symptomenkomplex bei Rückenmarkverletzungen verankert. ..." Hans Killian, Meister der Chirurgie (2.Aufl.)p.208First Edition -Important Dedication Copy! "This work on surgery of the brain and spinal cord is richly illustrated with exceptional black and white and colored plates, which graphically depict the variety of pathological conditions of the central nervous system. Krause has been called "the founder of German neurological surgery (Courville,1224)", was professor of surgery at Berlin where he developed the first operation for extradural excision of Gasserion ganglion for trigeminal neuralgia and approach to pituitary tumor through anterior cranial fossa.

        Poetry and Ireland: Essays.

      Dundrum: Cuala Press, 8 October 1908 - Octavo. Original blue-grey paper boards with buff linen spine, lettered in black on upper cover. Housed in a blue morocco-backed bookform slipcase and chemise. Later collector's bookplate of J. O. Edwards. Minor nicks to tips, faint fading around board edges, very few and minor spots within, an excellent copy. First edition, first impression, inscribed by Yeats on the first blank for Lady Gregory, "I think some of my part in this little work the best prose I have written. WBYeats 1922", with Lady Gregory's bookplate. This is a major association copy, inscribed by Yeats to his closest a friend and literary collaborator Lady Augusta Gregory (1852-1932), the chatelaine of Coole Park, cofounder of the Abbey Theatre, key figure in the Irish Literary Revival, and the mother of Major Robert Gregory (about whose death in 1918 Yeats wrote one of his most quoted short poems, "An Irish Airman Foresees his Death"). Gregory first met Yeats in 1896, and they were soon engaged in joint folktale-collecting tours in the summer of 1897 and beyond (which would be worked into the enlarged edition of Celtic Twilight, 1902). Foster well describes the nature and significance of Yeats and Gregory's friendship: "She brought him far more than the background of 'order and labour' which he craved, and against which much of his finest work would be written. For Gregory's part. the friendship with the dazzling young poet developed into a literary and theatrical collaboration, and launched her on a career of playwriting and theatrical management which put her at the centre of the developing cultural renaissance in Dublin." (R.F. Foster, Oxford DNB). Only 250 copies of Poetry and Ireland: Essays were printed, and copies inscribed by Yeats are rare. Given the topic of the work, and the pre-eminent importance of both Yeats and Lady Gregory to the Irish Literary Revival, scarcely a better association can be imagined.

        Biedermeier-Wünsche... Fünfzig Kleinfolio-Tafeln in Licht-u. Farbendruck nebst illustriertem Text

      Stuttgart: Julius Hoffmann, 1908. First Limited Edition. Cloth folder. Near Fine. No. 165 of 400 copies. Oblong, 26.5 by 33.5 cm. Booklet, running 25 pages, and 50 separate or loose plates, each with a number of images of Biedermeier cards, especially those with movable parts, and other ephemera from that period. One plate with color chromolithographic images; otherwise, the plates are in black and white. This is the indispensable and go-to source still for Biedermeier cards. Biedermeier relates to a period of general stability in Europe between Napoleon's defeat in 1815 and the Revolution of 1848 and specifically pertains to the Teutonic world (the German-speaking areas) where the upper bourgeois was culturally ascendant and superceding Royal and aristocratic patronage as the engine of high cultural development. The Biedermeier cards were a rage, with their intricate, clever mechanisms and pretty hand-colored imagery. Light wear to the outer folio folder. Generally clean.

        The Story of the Noble Opal

      Brisbane, Flavelle, Roberts and Sankey, 1908. Small octavo (166 x 107 mm), 114, [2] (recto blank, with the device of the printers, Outridge Printing Co., on the verso) pages. Original olive-green cloth lettered in gilt on the spine ('Noble Opal' and the author's surname) and front cover (the full title); cloth slightly marked, and lightly rubbed at the extremities; top edge, endpapers and adjacent leaves a little foxed; an excellent copy. Flavelle's Gem Series Number 1. This copy is inscribed and signed to 'C.C. Brittlebank, with kind regards from Sydney B.J. Skertchly. Corinda, Qld. 6.3.08'. Sydney Skertchly (1850-1926) arrived in Brisbane in 1891 after a successful career as a geologist in places as varied as the Fenland and East Anglia, Egypt, California, Burma and China. In 1895-97 he was assistant government geologist in the Geological Survey of Queensland; he was President of the Royal Society of Queensland in 1898, and a founder and first president of the Field Naturalists' Club in 1906 (the Australian Dictionary of Biography entry on Skertchly is most informative, without mentioning this publication). The author's end-note to the reader states that the publishers 'asked me to write a series of little books on gemstones, and gave me an entirely free hand. As this, the first of them shows, they will not be mere gatherings from other harvests, but original works embodying the results of my own experience'. An early, rare and important work on the subject (and we know of no other volumes in the Flavelle's Gem Series). The inscription and signature date from what appears to be the month of publication (reviews begin to appear in Queensland newspapers from 10 March 1908). Charles Clifton Brittlebank (1862-1945), the recipient of this copy, was a notable mycologist and natural history illustrator. Among many original papers on geology and plant diseases, Brittlebank's work includes the illustrations to French's 'Destructive Insects of Victoria' (1891-1911), Archibald Campbell's 'Nests and Eggs of Australian Birds' (1901), and many of the works of Daniel McAlpine, whom he succeeded as Vegetable Pathologist to the Department of Agriculture in Victoria. This copy also carries the later pencilled ownership signature of Edward Edgar Pescott (1872-1954), horticulturalist, naturalist, author and bibliographer. We currently have for sale two unsigned copies of this item, sourced from a significant collection on the subject. They prove the existence of distinctly variant issues: one contains an unnumbered advertising leaf for 'Queensland, the Queen of the Colonies' (verso blank) tipped in at the rear, the other is printed on textured (and coarser) paper, resulting in a noticeably thicker volume (14 mm as distinct from 11 mm). This signed copy is yet a third variant: while it is printed on the better-quality paper, it does not contain the additional advertising leaf (and it was clearly never present).

        (Photo album): College Women Pennsylvania 1907-1908

      Hanover and York, Pennsylvania, 1908. Near Fine. Large oblong octavo. Approximately 11" x 7.5". Cloth over flexible card wrappers. 242 gelatin sliver photographs measuring between 2.25" x 2.25" and 4.75" x 3.5". Almost all are captioned, mostly with printed phrases clipped from magazines or newspapers, a number by hand in white album ink. Light wear at the extremities of the wrappers, else near fine. The images are about fine with some light sunning. The album documents the adventures of a number of young women at a not-clearly-identified college in Southern Pennsylvania, possibly the York College of Pennsylvania. Despite the captions, some confusion exists as to the identity of the school, exacerbated somewhat by the women's tendency to decorate their dorm rooms with pennants from many other institutions. It does seem clear that the school was in proximity to York and Hanover, Pennsylvania.A few images of family members are present, as well as a few of recreations off-campus, but the vast majority are of young women posing on campus and both in their dorm rooms and in front of the building (several of the building bedecked with banners and flags for commencement), in costumes, dressed as Regency dandies, posing with tennis equipment, in formal dresses with flowers, with cameras, on boats (including two of a visit to a battleship), and otherwise happily comporting themselves. While a few men make an appearance in the album, the vast majority of the images are of college women at school.A nice, relatively early album of women at college with few men in evidence.

        1908-1909 WYOMING RODEO PHOTOGRAPH POSTCARDS

      Rawlins: Photographed by M. F. Jukes & P. H. Healy, 1908-1909., 1908-1909. First edition. First edition. Fifteen 8.7 x 13.2 cm (3 1/2" x 5 1/2") real photographic postcards which includes one duplicate card, that document Rawlins, Wyoming, rodeo events in 1908-1909. Of the fifteen photographs six are identified as by M. F. Jukes; one is identified as by P. H. Healy; and eight have no identifying names. Fifteen real photograph postcards with all being printed on AZO photograph postcard stock, with split backs and stamp box on the rear. This exceptional group offers an excellent historical record of the Carbon County Rodeo in Rawlins, Wyoming at the beginning of the 20th century. The riders depicted include such noted cowboy performers as Sam Brownell from Iron Mountain, who began performing in the Frontier Days, Cheyenne, Wyoming in 1904; Roy "Skeeter Bill" Robbins (1887-1933) was a tall, active cowboy from Glenrock, Wyoming, who became a professional rodeo performer often performing in the East; and his brother Harry Robbins. Mark Frederick Jukes (1877-1971) immigrated to the United States from Canada at the beginning of the 20th century and established himself as a professional photographer in Rawlins, Wyoming, as well as working for the Rio Grande Railroad, becoming a pioneering photographer of early steam railroads in the West. He would later move his studio to Elko, Nevada by 1920, and by the 1930's had established himself in Bellingham, Washington where he would remain until his death in 1971. See Arnold Arluke, "Beauty and the Beast, Human-Animal Relations Revealed In Real Photo Postcards 1905-1935." A very fine set.

        The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire

      London: John Murray, 1908.. [Late Antiquity]. FINELY BOUND, new impression. In eight volumes. Octavo (22 x 15cm). With a portrait frontispiece of the author, lithographically reproducing the original copper engraving, as well as 14 maps, 12 folding. In contemporary full tree calf by RIVIERE for SOTHERAN'S, with raised bands, gilt titles to contrasting red and green labels to spines and further gilt decoration to spines. Marbled endpapers; top edges gilt, others untrimmed. Some maps misbound, but complete. Spines sunned; a little light external wear. Very good overall. Originally published sequentially in six volumes between 1776 and 1788, Gibbon's 'Decline and Fall' is universally acknowledged as a historiographical and literary giant of the English language. It has been read by historians of Rome and Byzantium ever since publication, though Gibbon's pessimistic attitude is currently unfashionable amongst scholars of Late Antiquity. Nevertheless, the breadth of his coverage and the depth of his knowledge remains unrivalled.

        Baedeker's Palestine and Syria / With the Chief Routes Through Mesopotamia and Babylonia / With 20 Maps, 52 Plans, and a Panorama of Jerusalem / Handbook for Travellers / Fourth Edition, Remodelled and Augmented

      Karl Baedeker / Charles Scribner's Sons, Leipzig / New York 1908 - Dated 1906 to title page, though preliminary list of 36 Baedeker titles to endpapers here dates five titles 1907, while the Egypt, Southern Italy, and Spain/Portugal guides are actually dated 1908. So 1908 is a more likely print date for this 1906 edition. This copy is in near-fine condition with all maps and th panorama of Jerusalem neatly folded in position, though with some marginal pencil notes by previous owner Melvin Robert Laird, mostly noting dates when he visited various sites during March and April, 1909. Gilt titles bright. Still tipped in at title page is the warning notice that "The excessive zeal of the Turkish censorship sometimes even extends to the confiscation of guide-books. The traveller is therefore advised to place this volume in his pocket before crossing the Turkish frontier or entering a Turkish port." Market price for such a well-preserved example might normally run $130, save that this copy retains its original, printed brown paper dust jacket in very good condition (front flap about 1/3 separated at the fold.) Presence of the hard-to-find, original printed jacket on these pre-1915 Baedekers will generally enhance value by a factor of 3 or 4, so a market price here might run $450, save that previous owner has written his full name, "Melvin Robert Laird," to top of front pastedown. This book came back on the market following the 2016 death of former Wisconsin Congressman Melvin Robert Laird, who served as Richard Nixon's Secretary of Defense from 1969-1973, oversaw the American withdrawal from Vietnam, and suspended the draft. But as that Melvin Robert Laird was born 1922, this copy was clearly originally owned by his father, Wisconsin politician, businessman, and clergyman Melvin Robert Laird, Sr. An interesting association copy for the collector, from the family of and doubtless having become the property through inheritance of the notable former U.S. Secretary of Defense. 436 pp. including index.

        The Tale of Jemima Puddle-Duck.

      London and New York Frederick Warne and Co 1908 - First edition, first, second or third printing, 16mo., colour frontispiece, plain title vignette and 26 colour plates, pictorial endpapers, contemporary ink gift inscription dated August 1908 to front free endpaper, original olive green boards with mounted colour illustration, minor shelf-lean, spine a little darkened, otherwise a near-fine copy. An excellent copy of Beatrix Potter's most critically acclaimed work; in many ways the story of the trusting duck, the crafty fox and the heroic dog Shep are a modern retelling of Little Red Riding Hood with a number of ironic twists. Jemima Puddle-Duck was also the first of Potter's books to be set wholly at Hill Top Farm, with both the locations and many of the characters such as Shep and the farmer's wife drawn from life.
