        Äskulap als Harlekin. Humor, Satire und Phantasie aus der Praxis. Von Dr.med. SERENUS.

      Wiesbaden, J. F. Bergmann 1911.. 8°. VI(2) S. (Titelei), 218 S., 4 Bll. (Verlagsanz.). Unbeschn. OKart. m. schwarzgepr. Tit. in ornamentaler Einrahmung auf Vorderdeckel. Einrisse auf Vorderdeckel, der vord. Rückenkante u. Schmutztit. mit säurefreien Klebeband unterlegt; im Falz aufgeplatzt, Bindung dadurch etw. gelockert; im Text sauber.. Mühlleitner 323. Erste Ausgabe. Sammelband mit 30 Anekdoten aus der ärztlichen Praxis, unter Pseudonym verfasst von dem aus der Bukowina stammenden Arzt und Psychoanalytiker Wilhelm Stekel (1868-1940). S. promovierte 1893 in Wien an der Medizinischen Fakultät. Vor seiner Niederlassung als Nervenarzt absolvierte S. noch eine neurol.-psychiatrische Ausbildung u.a. bei Krafft-Ebing. 1902 trat er mit Sigmund Freud in Kontakt und ließ sich von ihm analysieren. Er regte Freud zur Gründung der Mittwoch-Gesellschaft an, aus der später die 'Wr. Psychoanalytische Vereinigung' hervorging. Zusammen mit Alfred Adler in deren Vorstand gewählt, verließen beide kurze Zeit später die Gruppe im Dissens mit Freud. Anlaß für den Austritt Stekels war eine Kontroverse um das 'Zentralblatt für Psychoanalyse', dessen Schriftleitung er seit 1910 innehatte. Stekel wurde innerhalb der psychoanalytischen Bewegung hauptsächlich durch Traum- und Symboldeutungen bekannt und er formulierte erstmals die Hypothese von einem 'Todestrieb'. (vgl. dazu auch ÖBL XIII,203). - Auf Schmutztitel m. eh., signierter und datierter Widmung des Verfassers an seinen Berufskollegen, 'den Weltmenschen M.G. Mandelik' sowie in Beilage ein maschinschr., 21-zeiliger Brief, von Stekel eh. unterzeichnet. In dem mit 31. III. 1913 datierten Schreiben, auf dem Briefpapier des 'Zentralblattes f. Psychoanalyse', (das S. auch nach seinem Bruch mit Freud - dessen Namen er im Briefkopf m. Rotstift ausgestrichen hat - noch bis zum Beginn des ersten Weltkrieges edierte), bedankt S. sich bei dem Empfänger für die Widmung des Buches, mit dem wohl das 1912 erschienene Werk 'Selige Botschaft. Ein Buch der Liebe' von Mandelik gemeint hat: "...eine brüderliche Seele sprach mir aus allen Zeilen. Was trennt uns denn? Dass wir jeder eine andere Brille tragen,... Sie eine rosenrote, ich eine dunkle, graue. Aber hinter der Brille, das Auge und das Herz sind uns gemeinsam."

        Before the Lamps are Lit

      Melbourne: George Robertson, c., 1911. Oblong quarto, frontispiece, plates; illustrated cloth, a little shaken, hinges repaired but a very good copy. Attractive children's book of six stories with engravings by eminent illustrator Ida Rentoul Outhwaite. Both Tarella (Ella) Quin and Ida Rentoul Outhwaite had attended East Melbourne Presbyterian Ladies' College, Ella was 11 years older and it was through her younger sister Hazel that the association occurred. In Anderson's Singing Roads, Hazel writes "I mentioned that there was a girl at school who was always decorating the edges of her exercise books with drawings of fairies"Her father, Edward Quin, who was at one time a member of the New South Wales Legislature, owned a dairy farm called 'The Leasowes' near Fern Tree Gully and a sheep station called 'Tarella' in far western New South Wales between Wilcannia and White Cliffs. One of eight children, 'Ella' was educated in Adelaide, but spent most of her life on stations. The summers there were exceedingly hot, and whenver possible her mother sent the girls south to 'The Leasowes' for the summer months. Ella's first writing was short sketches of station life, published under the pseudonym 'James Adare' in the Pastoral Review. At the editor's suggestion, she wrote some stories for children, which she forwarded to Ethel Turner (Mrs Curlewis) (q.v.), hoping to have them published in Sydney newspapers. However, Turner strongly recommended that they be published as books, and so her first book, Gum Tree Brownie, came to be published in 1910. Ella's younger sister, Hazel, was at school with Ida Rentoul, and it was through this association that Ida Rentoul Outhwaite (q.v.) came to illustrate Quin's children's stories. Ella married T. M. Daskein, one of the proprietors of Morden Station in far northwest NSW.Outhwaite was both original and prolific: 'the marked success of her work in capturing the imagination of a large audience was the direct impetus behind the spate of finely produced and illustrated Australian children's fantasy books of the 1920s.' (Holden, Visions of Fantasy).A most desirable showcase of this important Australian illustrator's work.

        The Novels of the Sisters Bronte: Wuthering Heights, Jane Eyre, Shirley, Villette, The Tenant of Wildfe.[12 Volume Set]

      John Grant, Edinburgh 1911 - Octavo, Gilt lettered and decorated cover and spine. Top edges are gilt. Charlotte (April 21, 1816 March 31, 1855), Emily (July 30, 1818 December 19, 1848) and Anne (January 17, 1820 May 28, 1849), were English writers of the 1840s and 1850s. Their novels caused a sensation when they were first published and were subsequently accepted into the canon of great English literature. Charlotte and Emily had written compulsively from early childhood and were first published, at their own expense, in 1846 as poets under the pseudonyms Currer, Ellis and Acton Bell. The book attracted little attention, selling only two copies. The sisters returned to prose, producing a novel each in the following year. Charlotte's Jane Eyre, Emily's Wuthering Heights and Anne's Agnes Grey were released in 1847 after their long search to secure publishers. The novels attracted great critical attention and steadily became best-sellers, but the sisters' careers were shortened by ill-health. Emily died the following year before she could complete another novel, and Anne published her second novel, The Tenant of Wildfell Hall, in 1848, a year before her death. Upon publication Jane Eyre received the most critical and commercial success of all the Bronte works, continuing to this day. Charlotte's Shirley appeared in 1849 and was followed by Villette in 1853. Her first novel, The Professor, was published posthumously in 1857. The first biography of Charlotte was written by her friend Elizabeth Gaskell and published in 1857. A most handsome set. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        ACQUAINTANCES, OLD AND NEW, AMONG REFORMERS

      [Milwaukee]: [S. E. Tate Printing Company], 1911. First Edition. Hardcover. A spectacular, as new copy of a very scarce book. Duodecimo (5-1/4" x 7-3/4") bound in bright blue publisher's cloth with gilt lettering on the front cover; 115 pages. Illustrated with a frontispiece portrait and several plates. Brown describes meeting Frederick Douglass and touring with Susan B. Anthony as well as her experiences as a minister. Bookplate of Brown's daughter; Gwendolen Brown Willis, on the front free endpaper. Olympia Brown (1835-1926) was refused admission to the University of Michigan because of her gender and instead attended Mount Holyoke College and Antioch University. She decided to become a preacher because she wanted to counter the prevalent and, she believed, erroneous "doctrine of endless punishment" offered by traditional hellfire-and-brimstone ministers. She had to argue to gain admittance to the Universalist Divinity School at St. Lawrence University where she became the first female graduate of a mainstream theological school. In 1863, when she was posted as minister to a congregation in Weymouth Landing, Massachusetts, she was the only female granted full clergy status in any mainstream Christian denomination. Almost as soon as she arrived in Massachusetts, she became active in the women's suffrage movement. She was later posted at a church in Bridgeport, Connecticut--where circus master P. T. Barnum was in her congregation--but received little support from her congregation, where a traditionalist faction sought to have her removed from the pulpit during her first pregnancy. She was unemployed for two years, before accepting a post at the struggling Church of the Good Shepherd in Racine, Wisconsin, which had been without a regular minister for several years. At Racine, she granted female church members equal voting rights on church matters and brought in such guest speakers as Susan B. Anthony, Julia Ward Howe, Mary Livermore, and Elizabeth Cady Stanton. In 1887, just after her father's death, she switched her life's priorities, becoming a part-time minister and a full-time activist for women's rights. She served as Vice President of the National Woman Suffrage Association, founded the Federal Suffrage Association in 1892 (which became the Federal Equality Association), and became one of the first members of the more radical and confrontational Woman's Party when it was formed by Alice Paul in 1913. She was one of the last of the "old time suffragettes" who lived to see women granted voting rights in 1919. After casting her first ballot in 1920 at the age of 85, she became active in the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom. Her church in Racine has since been renamed Olympia Brown Unitarian Universalist Church. Gwendolen Brown Willis (1876-1969) was the daughter of John Henry Willis (owner of the Racine Times Publishing Company) and Olympia Brown (who kept her maiden name after marriage). She spent part of her life teaching classics at the Bryn Mawr School in Baltimore and wrote a few books (including finishing her mother's autobiography) before moving back to Racine where she died in 1969 having never married.

        Ethan Frome

      New York: Charles Scriber's Sons, 1911 First edition, first issue text with "wearily" unbattered on p. 135. One of 6,000 copies. Publisher's red cloth, lettered in gilt, top edge gilt. About near fine, with some light wear to the extremities, faint soiling to the front board, slight lean to the spine, former owner name erased from front free endpaper, otherwise clean interior. Overall, a bright and attractive copy. Garrison A19.I.a. Ethan Frome is a Pulitzer Prize winning novel set in the fictional town of Starkfield, Massachusetts. It tells the story of Ethan Frome, a young man with a sickly wife, Zeena, who has fallen in love with his wife's cousin, Mattie, who lives with the Fromes to assist with Zeena's healthcare. Zeena, aware of her husband's wandering eye, is determined to send Mattie away, and Ethan is desperate to express his feelings. In a bizarre twist of events, Mattie and Ethan paralyze themselves in an attempt to commit suicide, and Zeena becomes their caretaker. The plot is framed as an extended flashback within a modern narrator's account of the local crippled legend, Ethan Frome, with whom he takes refuge one evening. Wharton based the plot for Ethan Frome on an actual sledding accident that occurred in Lennox, Massachusetts. Interestingly, she began writing Ethan Frome as a French composition while living in Paris and later expanded it to its current form.. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine.

        China. No. 1 (1911). Despatches from Sir A. Hosie Forwarding Reports Respecting the Opium Question in China.

      His Majesty's Stationery Office. June1911., London. - Despatches from Sir A.Hosie: 23pp. Original wrappers, lower corners and edges, little creased, very good. Quarto. These papers contain reports on the suppression of opium cultivation in the opium producing provinces of China, assembled by Consul-General Sir Alexander Hosie (1853-1925) one of the leading members of the British consular service in China of his time. They cover the provinces of Shansi, Shensi, and Kansu, together with other reports from Szechuan and Yunnan. Based partly on his own journeys and observations, they also contain contributions from long resident British miss-ionaries in the several provinces. A remarkable change was taking place in China at this time. This is explained in the contemporary account given at pp.409-410 of Samuel Couling’s Encyclopaedia Sinica (Shanghai, Kelly and Walsh, 1917) which provides the necessary back-ground to Hosie’s reports. There had been a gradual spread of opium cultivation within China and Manchuria in the later 19th century, with a shift in both public consumption and taste away from the Indian opium imported largely by British and Indian firms from the 18th century on. At the same time, a strong anti-opium movement had been developing in China during the final decades of the Manchu dynasty, and by 1906 had obliged the Court to issue an edict ordering the abolition of opium smoking within ten years. Also, and in the same year, the British parliament had entered into a ten year agreement with China whereby the export of opium from India was to be reduced by one-tenth annually, in return for a similar reduction in opium production there. An Inter-national Opium Commission sat at Shanghai in 1909 and agreed to assist China in its efforts to stop opium trade and cultivation, and it met again at The Hague in 1911. Both the movement and the change of attitude among officials and people were genuine. Hosie himself considered that "No question has ever stirred the Chinese Empire so profoundly as that of opium suppression", and the detailed reports contained in these papers seem to bear this out. By then, too, Couling added, a stigma was now being universally attached to opium smoking. Unfortunately, the change of government brought about by the Chinese Revolution of 1911-12, and the Warlord Era which followed would disrupt the work: but even so, Britain discontinued the export of Indian opium before the ten year agreement had ended. Couling’s Encyclopaedia Sinica was reprinted by Oxford University Press, Hong Kong in 1983. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        A History of the British Army

      London, Macmillan and Co., , 1911-35. 13 volumes in 20, 14 text volumes and 6 maps volumes, original red cloth, titles gilt to spines. In the dust jackets. Numerous folding coloured maps. Light browning, but overall a very good set indeed in jackets that show only the slightest of use. Publication began in 1899 and the final volume was first published in 1930. This set is, as usual, of mixed editions, the last 6 volumes being firsts. So truly a lifetime's work, and an irreplaceable source, written "vigorously, lucidly, and graphically" (DNB), covering the period 1100 to 1870. Described by Brian Bond as " …the product of indefatigable research in original documents, a determination to present a clear, accurate, and readable narrative of military operations, and a close personal knowledge of the battlefields, which enabled him to elucidate his account with excellent maps. Most important, however, was his motivation: namely, a lifelong affection for the old, long-service, pre-Cardwell army, the spirit of the regiments of which it largely consisted, and the value of its traditions to the nation." Illuminated calligraphic presentation inscription to Captain H. W. Spurrell, thanking him for the "time and trouble expended by him in connection with the Battlefield Tour, Ypres, May 1936." with numerous appended signatures of members of the 1st, 4th, and 5th Battalions The Somerset Light Infantry, 4th Bns Dorsetshire and Wiltshire Regiments. A truly handsome set of a handsomely-produced and important work.
