      Northwest Germany: 3rd quarter of the 14th century (ca. 1386). An important discovery: a collection of important pharmaceutical and botanical texts, assembled and written in the final quarter of the 14th century. Only two other similar manuscripts of the principal text - Platearius's "Circa instans" - have come on the market according to the Schoenberg database, both of which are now in the Wellcome Library: 1) a mid-14th-century copy from France or England, offered by L. Rosenthal in his Cat. 130 (1909), no. 85, and 2) a mid-13th-century copy from England, sold at Sotheby's on 26 June 1913, lot 1346. Texts: I. Matthaeus Platearius (attrib.) "Circa instans" (pp. 1-101); II. Walter Agilon, "De dosis medicinarum" (pp. 101-13); III. Anon., "Ars medicinarum laxativarum" (pp. 113-26); IV. Bartholomeo da Varignana, "Practica a capite usque ad pedes" (excerpt) (pp. 127-33); V. Anon., "Pirorum due sunt species" (pp. 134); VI. Alphabetical medical catalogue from "A" to "S" (pp. 135-42); VII. Middle Dutch tract, opening "Dyt zijn de Crachte van den Rosmarijn…" (pp. 141-42); VIII. John of Parma, "Practicella sive de medicinis simplicibus" (excerpt) (p. 144); IX. Pseudo-Alexander the Great and Thessalus, son of Hippocrates (attrib.) "Hortus sanitatis de herbis, plantis et arboribus" (pp. 153-73); X. Albertus Magnus, "Tractatus de herbis" with his "Tractatus de animalibus" (excerpt) (pp. 169-73). XI. Manuscript recipes, presumably added by the original owner (pp. 174-90). This manuscript was produced for use by a doctor in the 14th century and contains a number of important texts, most notably the Circa Instans, one of the foundational works of pharmacology. Matthaeus's text is a compendium of 13th-century botanical science and a prototype of the modern pharmacopoeia. "Copies were circulated throughout Europe, where its value was instantly recognized and where it shaped the literature of botany and pharmacy for the next 300 years."-Frank J. Anderson, An Illustrated History of the Herbal (1977). The text by Matthaeus is concerned with "simples," or substances that were observed to have medical properties, but were not formed from compounds of other substances. This was an area of medicine commonly abandoned to folklore before the composition of this text. It is usually known as Circa Instans (from the opening two words of the text: "Circa instans negotium in simplicibus medicinis" ("About the present business, concerning medical simples"). It is anonymous, but was most probably the work of Matthaeus Platearius, physician from the great medical school at Salerno. It was based on Dioscorides's "Vulgaris," but went far further than its classical source, describing hundreds of plants, the drugs that might be obtained from them, and their potential applications, forming the first major attempt of western pharmacy to go beyond its Greek and Arabic sources and producing a distinct work of European pharmacological medicine. The text remained the standard work on the subject for several centuries; its first appearance in print was the 1497 edition of Serapion. To the Circa Instans are appended a series of other complementary medical tracts, including Walter Agilon's De dosis medicinarum, itself a rare text. Agilon, a master of medicine at Montpellier, wrote during the first half of the 13th century. This text was in fact a close paraphrase of the important Arabic work on compounding medicines by Haly Abbas (more properly 'Ali ibn al-'Abbas al-Majusi, d. ca. 982-94). This is followed by a text on the preparation of laxatives: "Hec est ars medicinarum laxativarum tam simplicium quam compositarum…" (here pp. 113-26), which is also recorded in Wiesbaden, Hessiche Landesbibliothek, MS. 56; an excerpt from the Practica a capite usque ad pedes of Magister Bartholomeo da Varignana (an Italian physician to Emperor Henry VII, d. early 14th century), opening, "Egritudo vero alia universalis, alia particularis…" (pp. 127-133), and otherwise recorded in the Collectio Salernitana, IV (1856), p. 339. That text ends with a note that its scribe finished it after the feast of St. Thomas de Kantellenberg (i.e. Thomas Becket of Canterbury: 29 December). This is followed by the Pirorum due sunt species (p. 134), an alphabetical medical catalogue from "A"-"S" (pp. 135-42), and a Middle Dutch tract, opening "Dyt zijn de Crachte van den Rosmarijn" (pp. 141-42). Between several blank leaves, there follows an excerpt of the Practicella sive de medicinis simplicibus of John of Parma (p. 144). To this has been appended a tract on the medicinal properties of herbs ascribed to Alexander the Great, the Hortus sanitatis de herbis, plantis et arboribus, claiming descent from the works of the Greek scholar Thessalus, son of Hippocrates (pp. 153-73). Another variant of the opening of the same text appears at the end of this one, presumably mistaken as a separate item by the scribe of this manuscript, or by the scribe of his exemplar. The final substantial text here is Albertus Magnus's Tractatus de Herbis (pp. 169-73), here in an apparent variant format, ending with an excerpt from his Tractatus de Animalibus (pp. 171-73). The remaining leaves are partially filled with medical recipes, most probably additions by the earliest owner of the volume. Provenance: German private collection. This is a fine and handsome practical medical/pharmaceutical compendium, in excellent condition and in its original binding of red goatskin (now faded to a pleasant reddish-pink) over wooden boards with vellum pastedowns. Two catches on the upper cover are present but the clasps are lacking. The binding is a bit worn and rather rubbed with small defects to the upper board. The first 133 pages have been rubricated with two-line Lombard initials and paragraph marks. The text is very well preserved overall with only minor faults: the first eight folios have some wrinkling in the gutter and are partially separated from the text block in the lower part. There is no loss to the text. There is also some light dampstaining and some slightly defective edges to about 15 pages, again without loss to the text. The blank leaves are all present. An unusually very well-preserved example in its original binding.

      o. O., -, 1909 und später. - Bis auf ein Foto, alle auf Karton aufgezogen. - Leichte Gbrsp., kl. Randläsuren. - Kubelik, (1880 - 1940), perfektionierte bereits als Kind sein Violinenspiel. Später studierte er am Prager Konservatorium gemeinsam mit Otakar Ševcík. Ab 1898 tourte Kubelík als Solist und begeisterte durch seine Virtuosität und sein fehlerfreies Violinenspiel, 1902 wurde er mit einer Goldmedaille der Royal Philharmonic Society in London ausgezeichnet. Neben Auftritten und Aufnahmen als Violinist schrieb er auch, unter anderem, sechs Violinkonzerte. Bei der Komposition des ersten Konzertes stand ihm der berühmte Komponist Josef Bohuslav Foerster zur Seite. Alle anderen verfasste Kubelík danach aber ohne fremde Hilfe. 1904 erwarb Kubelík das Schloss Horskyfeld. Obwohl er bis zu seinem Tod auf der Bühne stand, erlitt seine Karriere in den 1920er Jahren einen Knick, der einerseits auf den Aufstieg des Violinvirtuosen Jascha Heifetz zurückzuführen war, andererseits durch die Kritik der Fachwelt an seiner emotionslosen Spielweise verursacht wurde.

Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper of volume I: "To Lord Northcliffe with best wishes from the Author. E. H. Shackleton 1911". Alfred Harmsworth, Viscount Northcliffe (1865-1922), proprietor of the Daily Mail, was, like Shackleton, of Anglo-Irish background. Northcliffe took a keen interest in Polar exploration, he was an important sponsor of the Discovery Expedition of 1901-04, on which Shackleton served as Third Officer, and the earlier Jackson-Harmsworth expedition to the Arctic in 1894-97. The Daily Mail played a key role in the promotion of Shackleton's iconic status: "When Shackleton returned to civilization [following the Nimrod expedition], he was eager to get word to the Daily Mail, with which he had a contract for exclusive rights to the story. Before the ship returned to Lyttelton harbor [New Zealand], Shackleton slipped in at Stewart Island and sent a lengthy wire to his newspaper. Within days word of his accomplishment spread around the world. Aided by the slant of the Daily Mail, which proclaimed Shackleton the conqueror of the South Pole. Since he had nearly found the route [to the Pole] and determined that the pole was on that lofty plain [the Antarctic Plateau], Shackleton instantly became famous" (T. H. Baughman, Shackleton of the Antarctic, 2009, pp. 41-42). The Heart of the Antarctic is Shackleton's account of the British Antarctic Expedition of 1907–9 (Nimrod) and "remains one of the half-dozen greatest polar accounts" (ibid.). "Their sledge journey to the south magnetic pole was one of the three foremost achievements of this expedition. The other two achievements were, first, the ascent and survey of Mount Erebus (12,448 feet), the active volcano on Ross Island and, second, the southern sledge journey, which reached within 100 miles of the south pole" (ODNB). Shackleton's diary entries for the latter, published here "virtually unaltered" constitute "one of the most compelling narratives in the Antarctic literature" (Rosove p.386). The expedition established Shackleton as a "bona fide English hero," but the success of the book did little to alleviate "the financial problems left to him by the expedition" (Books on Ice). Sir Raymond Priestley (1886–1974), a British Geologist and Antarctic explorer who accompanied Shackleton on the 1907–1913 Antarctic expeditions, said, "For scientific leadership, give me Scott; for swift and efficient travel, Amundsen; but when you are in a hopeless situation, when there seems to be no way out, get on your knees and pray for Shackleton". This three-volume limited edition is "one of the most handsome productions in the Antarctic canon" (ibid.); the "most luxurious publication to have appeared during the 'heroic age' of Antarctic exploration" (Taurus). Presentation sets are genuinely uncommon and highly desirable, and the more so with such a striking association, linking one of the towering figures of polar exploration and "the greatest figure who ever walked down Fleet Street" (ODNB).

        Letters on the Baluch-Afghan Boundary Commission of 1896 under Captain A.H. McMahon, C.I.E. Written to the Englishman (Calcutta) and Times of India (Bombay) by their Special Correspondent with the Mission.

      Calcutta: `The Baptist Mission Press, 1909 - Small octavo. Original dark blue sand-grain cloth, title gilt to spine, black surface-paper endpapers. A little rubbed, and very slightly mottled, pale toning, single worm-track through the last few leaves, but overall very good indeed. First and only edition. Extremely uncommon: OCLC has British Library and University of Nebraska only. The Afghan–Baluch boundary from Domandi to the Persian frontier was one of the last sections of the borders of India to be officially demarcated (see Davies, The Problem of the North-West Frontier, 1890–1908, p. 162). Maynard – who was to become one of India's leading ophthalmologists, performing over 14,000 operations for cataracts, and publishing important papers on glaucoma – accompanied McMahon's commission as medical officer, publishing a couple of scientific papers relating to observations made on the expedition, along with these unofficial "despatches" contributed to the Indian press. Maynard's letters are picturesque but highly informative, always retaining a sense of the importance of the task in hand, and the vital role that the commanding officer played in the success of their operations: "All of this has not been accomplished without great forethought, great tact, and the constant exercise of those qualities of mind and heart in dealing with more or less civilised races, and which are possessed by Captain McMahon in an eminent degree. The proof of this is that the demarcation of 800 miles of frontier all of it lying among tribes more noted for their lawlessness and disregard for their manners, and in country which, when not actual desert, has been hitherto regarded as unsafe for British officers to visit, has been settled, much of it rapidly, and all of it without accident" (p. 87). Maynard had previously served on the Black Mountain Expedition, as the superintendent of Patna Opium Factory, 1895–1901, and as Civil Surgeon Ranchi, Hazaribagh, Patna and Darjeeling. He died in 1921 at the age of 57. [Attributes: First Edition]

        The Dr. Jaeger's Sanitary Woolen System Co.

      Washington DC: 1909. Staple bound booklet of 40pp, illustrated throughout, fine in original wrappers. Accompanied by a printed sheet of nine Jaeger samples each measuring 35 mm x 35 mm. Dr. Gustav Jaeger (1832 - 1917) pioneered woolen underclothing using advanced weaving techniques that allowed for exact body fitting and full-length 'step-in' garments. Manufactured under license from the 1890s in Britain and North America, Jaeger woolens were soon worn and championed by, among others, Oscar Wilde and George Bernard Shaw. Meanwhile, the indefatigable Dr. Jaeger was developing a super-insulating woolen fabric which was used by success Polar expeditions as standard issue. Mawson and his colleagues survived the debilitating Antarctic cold in no small part due to their choice of Jaeger undergarments. The rear cover of the booklet proudly boasts Artic and Antarctic expeditions that have used Jaeger woolen products, including the British Antarctic 'Nimrod' expedition led by Shackleton, the Ziegler Polar Relief expedition, and lesser-known attempts such as the Argentine Antarctic expedition of 1903. A curious relic relating to early Antarctic expeditions including those led by Mawson and Shackleton, these branded Antarctic-grade Jaeger woolen samples are a tangible connection to the Great Age of Polar Exploration. Examples of this booklet and the accompanying sample sheet (intact and uncompromised by silverfish activity) are almost unknown.

        Determination of the Surface-Tension of Water by the Method of Jet Vibration. Offprint from: Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London, Series A, Vol. 209. pp. 281-317.

      London, Harrison & Sons, 1909 Large4to. Original printed wrappers. Offprint from: Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London, Series A, Vol. 209. pp. 281-317. With cloth backstrip and I small nick to upper and lower corner of front wrapper. A fine and clean copy. Pp. 281-317. Scarce first edition, off-print issue, of Bohr's first published paper, constituting his only ever work in experimental physics. His first research project, a precision measurement of the surface tension of water by the observation of a regularly vibrating jet, was completed in 1906, when he was still a student, and it won him the gold medal from the Academy of Sciences. It is a mature piece of work, remarkable for the care and thoroughness with which both the experimental and theoretical parts of the problem were handled. (DSB).This Bohr's fist paper grew out of a work which Bohr did in 1906, and for which he won a gold medal from the Academy of Sciences. The subject was to experimentally investigate a method, proposed by Lord Rayleigh, for measuring the surface tension of water by the observation of a regularly vibrating jet. Bohr [...] included in his work essential improvements on Rayleigh's theory by taking into account the influence of the liquid's viscosity and of the ambient air, and by extending the earlier theory from infinitesimal to arbitrary large vibration amplitudes. In order to execute his experiments he had first of all to cope with one complication. The university had no physics laboratory. (Pais, p. 101). Bohr thus constructed many of the instruments himself using his father's laboratory. ''I did the experiments completely alone alone in the physiological laboratory... it was a great amount of work, which was technically demanding. (Pais, p. 102). In spite of being Bohr's only ever work in experimental physics, it documents his deep understanding of the methods of experimentalists.On 23 February 1907 the Academy notified him that he had won its gold medal. In 1908 he submitted a modified version to the Royal Society in London. It was his first and last paper on experiments he himself performed. His second publication was his last to deal with surface tension of liquids; it was purely theoretical. Both papers were favorably referred to in later literature.The manuscript of the prize essay, never published in its original form, is preserved in the Bohr Archives. It is handwritten, by Harald Bohr [i.e. his brother]. (Pais, p. 102), Rosenfeld, Bohr Bibliography No. 1. Rosenfeld, Dictionary of Scientific Biography II, pp. 239. Pais, Niels Bohr's Times, pp. 101-02.
