        Agricola De Re Metallica; Translated from the First Latin Edition 1556

      The Mining Magazine, London 1912 - Association copy SIGNED and INSCRIBED on free front end paper by the future President and his wife, "To Chester Benson / With Kind Regards of / Herbert Hoover / Lou Henry Hoover". Interesting association copy between two Oregonians and at the time, two titans of commerce. Stamped number 01930 out of 3000. 8.25" x 13.5" [6] xxxi 1-640 with scores of woodcuts, tables and instructions about the methodology of mineralogy throughout the ancient practices in the ancient world. Still bound in the original vellum, the bottom couple inches of the spine appears to have once been nibbled by mice in the basement of the Benson Hotel, expertly reconstructed.Chester Benson was the third son of Simon Benson, timber and land magnate whom Gov. Withycomb designated as "Oregon's First Citizen". The Hoovers frequently stayed at the Benson Hotel when visiting his home state of Oregon. "There are three objectives in translation of works of this character: to give faithful, literal translation of the author's statement; to give these in a manner which will interest the reader: and to preserve, so far as is possible, the style of the original text. The task has been double difficult in this work because, in using Latin, the author availed himself of a medium which had ceased to expand a thousand years before his subject had in many particulars come into being; in consequence he was in difficulties with a large number of ideas for which there were no corresponding words in the vocabulary at his command.he coined several hundred Latin expressions to answer his needs."

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. London, 1. XI. 1912.

      1912. 1½ SS. Gr.-8vo. Von einer London-Reise an den Reiseschriftsteller Ewald Banse (1883-1953), der ihm ein Manuskript für eine von Holitscher geplante Reihe angeboten hat: "[...] Das Werk, das Sie so freundlich sind, mir für meine Sammlung anzubieten, kommt für die Zwecke meines Verlags sehr wo[h]l in Betracht u. [lä]sst auch die Kapitelfolge das Beste erwarten. Ich wäre Ihnen sehr verbunden, wenn Sie gelegentlich eines nächsten Aufenthaltes in Berlin mir im Verlage Fischer die Möglichkeit böten, mit Ihnen Näheres zu besprechen [...] Für die Aufforderung zur Mitarbeit an Ihrer Zeitschrift bestens dankend, erkläre ich mich sehr gerne bereit, Geeignetes im gegebenen Falle Ihnen vorzulegen". - Arthur Holitscher hatte in diesem Jahr bei S. Fischer sein Buch "Amerika heute und morgen. Reiseerlebnisse" herausgebracht, das zu einem großen Erfolg wurde, weswegen er nun offenbar eine Serie mit Reisebeschreibungen vor Augen hatte. Bei S. Fischer ist von Banse, der sich später politisch nach rechts außen bewegte, allerdings nichts erschienen. - Auf Briefpapier mit gedr. Briefkopf von "Cranston's Waverley Hotel"; im linken Rand gelocht (geringf. Textberührung); etwas lichtrandig.

        Les Formes élémentaires de la vie religieuse.

      Paris: Librairie Félix Alcan,, 1912. Le système totémique en Australie. Octavo. Contemporary dark green cloth, titles to spine gilt, top edge speckled red, green endpapers. One folding map. A few marginal notes in pencil, possibly Steven Lukes's. Spine lightly darkened, extremities rubbed, neat repair to two short closed tears on half-title and title, half-title a little darkened, scattered spotting to contents. An excellent copy. First edition, first impression, of one of the author's most influential works, his sociological study of religion. "In his last great work, The Elementary Forms of the Religious Life, Durkheim gave his most compelling demonstration of the structuralist method, tracing relationships between social organization, religious beliefs, and such fundamental categories of thought as space, time, and causation. He seemed to have brought about the 'sociologization of everything'" (Ken Thompson, Émile Durkheim, 2002, p. 23). From the library of Steven Lukes, Durkheim's biographer, with his ownership stamp to the front free endpaper, binder's blank and title page. Steven Lukes is Professor of Sociology at New York University and the author of several titles on Durkheim, including the acclaimed Emile Durkheim, his life and work: a historical and critical study (1973). Lukes was quoted in a 2015 interview as considering The Elementary Forms of Religious Life as Durkheim's masterpiece.

        A Cowboy Detective

      W.B. Conkey Company, Chicago - 1912. First edition. Illustrated from 20 photographs including a frontispiece portrait of the author. Thick octavo red pictorial cloth stamped in gilt. Edges and spine tips rubbed: spine lightly sunned, front inner hinge cracked, else a very good, sound copy. The copy INSCRIBED BY SIRINGO to his friend Jim Mitchell. The inscription reads "To my friend / Jim Mitchell / with compliments of the author / Chas. A. Siringo / Hollywood, Calif. / May 3rd, 1926". Mitchell was the son of Thomas D Everhart, a mining engineer who was a constable with Wyatt Earp in Yuma Arizona. Mitchell wrote stories about Wyatt Earp which appeared in the Los Angeles Examiner in the 1920's, and when Earp died, Mitchell wrote his obituary and a short story that told about Earp's exploits. Wyatt and Josephine Earp lived on 17th street in Hollywood, California, four houses away from the Mitchell residence. Jim Mitchell was at Wyatt's bedside when he died and served as a pallbearer at his funeral. Born in 1855, Siringo worked from age 15 as a cowboy. In 1877, he was in Dodge City , Kansas, where he made the acquaintance of Wyatt Earp. After taking part in several cattle drives, he settled down, got married and opened a merchant business. He wrote a book entitled A Texas Cowboy which was published to wide acclaim. In 1886 he began a more than 20-year career as a detective with the famed Pinkerton agency. During this time he frequently worked undercover. In 1892 he stood against a lynch mob to protect Clarence Darrow, and in the 1890's he posed as an alleged gunman to infiltrate Butch Cassidy's gang. Information he provided led to the arrest of several members of the gang. He retired from Pinkerton's in 1907, and began writing another book which he entitled Pinkerton's Cowboy Detective. The Pinkerton Agency held up publication of the book for two years, claiming that it violated a confidentiality agreement, and objecting to the use of their name in the title. Siringo eventually capitulated, and published his book as A Cowboy Detective. One of the characteristic points for the book, as is present in this copy, is Siringo's underlining of the name "Dickenson" in the phrase "My First Work for the Dickerson Agency" and writing "Pinkerton" in the margin. From 1916 to 1918, Siringo worked as a Texas Ranger, but his health began to fail, and he retired, moving to Los Angeles. There, he became a celebrity because of his well-known exploits, and he rekindled his relationship with Wyatt Earp. In 1927, he published another book, Riata and Spurs. He died in 1928. A famous work with a fascinating inscription tying together a group of prominent names from the wild west, Everhart, Earp and Siringo. Provenance: The Mitchell Family.

      ROBINSON, W. HEATH. ROBINSON,W.HEATH. BILL THE MINDER. London: Constable 1912. Large thick 4to (9 1/2 x 11 1/2"), full vellum binding embossed in gold, FINE COPY WITH ORIGINAL SILK TIES. LIMITED TO ONLY 380 NUMBERED COPIES SIGNED BY ROBINSON, Because the book is printed entirely on hand-made paper, the quality of the black and white illustrations in this limited edition is far superior to those in the trade edition, and the mounted color plates seem to be sharper and richer in color as well. The story features a boot cleaner named Bill who ends up baby sitting, or becoming the Minder, for a disagreeable group of children and they have marvelous adventures with Bill. Really an amazing copy of Robinson's masterwork, issued in a very small limitation.

Leinenbände; Einbände etas beschabt, weinge Seiten fleckig. First and only Edition of Robert Koch's collected works! - Many of the basic principles and techniques of modern bacteriology were adapted or devised by Robert Koch, who therefore is often regarded as the chief founder of that science. His isolation of the causal agents of anthrax, tuberculosis, and cholera brought him worldwide acclaim as well as leadership of the German school of bacteriology. Directly or indicrectly he influenced authorities in many countries to introduce public health legislation based on knowledge of the microbic origin of various infections, and he stimulated more enlightened popular attitudes toward hygienic and immunologic measures for controlling such diseases. So he was ranked by Paul Ehrlich among "the few princes of medical science"; and Theobald Smith- not given to loose praise- called him "the master of us all in bacteriology". Such tributes were evoked by a remarkable combination of qualities- extraordinarily methodical technique, dogged perseverance in verifying theories and fearless logic in applying findings, and tireless industry. "Nicht locker lassen" (don't let up) was a favorite exhortation to himself and associates. - Koch expressed his career's basic motivation in his first paper on tuberculosis: "I have undertaken my investigations in the interest of public health and I hope the greatest benefits will acure therefrom". In disclosing the causes from disease and expounding the means of prevention, Robert Koch at his best was unexcelled. The Faustian weaknesses and perplexeties he carried do not diminish the lasting benefits that his aspirations bestowed upon mankind. - cit. n. Claude E. Dollmann, DSB 7, p.420-434. - - Koch's complete works were published two years after his death and contain practically all 99 of his published monographs and scientific papers, as well as 92 previously unpublished reports to national, state and municipal authorities. - Vol.I contains his early classic reports on anthrax, wound infections, disinfection, and methods of isolating bacteria, and 18 other papers on tuberculosis that appeared between 1882 and 1910. Vol. II, pt.1 contains 9 publications on cholera and 30 on tropical diseases, chiefly malaria and sleeping sickness. Among the reports to governments in vol. II, pt.2, 53 deal with zoonoses, acute infectious diseases (including cholera and typhoid fever), and tropical diseases; 8 with tuberculosis; 5 with vaccination regulations and procedures; 14 with with sewage disposal and water supplies; and 12 with miscellaneous topics ranging from the denaturing of alcohol to smoke nuisances. - Heirs of Hippocrates, No. 1076; Garrison & Morton No.86; Nobel price in 1905. - These three volumes containing Garrison & Morton No. 2331-3, 2544.1, 2457, 2488, 2495.1, 2536, 2545, 5040, 5108, 5167, 5636.1, 5923, 5930. - Rare not in Cushing, Osler or Waller.
