        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.

        Gesammelte Werke. Hrsg. von Dr. J. Schwalbe unter Mitwirkung von G. Graffky & E. Pfuhl. 2 in 3 Bde.

      - Leipzig, Verlag von Georg Thieme, 1912, Folio, XIV, 706 pp.; IV, 680 pp.; V, pp.681-1216; 1 Portraitafeln, 2 Frontisp., 194 Textabbildungen und 43 z.T. farb. Tafel., 3 orig. 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.

        Hrad smrti [The castle of death. Illustrated with color woodcuts by Josef Váchal].

      Prague: self-published 1912 - Quarto (23.6 × 18 cm). Contemporary gilt-ruled tan morocco binding with black inlays by Ant. Stelibský after a design by J. Solar; 51 pp. With eleven original color woodcuts by Váchal (frontispiece, title, nine leaves of plates with tissue guards). Signed by Deml to half title. Lacking the original pictorial wrappers. A few pages very lightly finger-marked, else very good. First edition of this expressionistic &#147;found&#148; prose poem by Jakub Deml (1878&#150;1961), one of the most bizarre and enigmatic figures of Czech interwar literature. A Catholic priest from rural Moravia, Deml constantly appeared to rebel against the church, maintained suspiciously close ties to various female muses, and was involved in numerous public scandals, while producing an enormous body of written work, often published in small bibliophile editions. He is now considered an important representative of Czech modernist literature and writers such as VitÄ›zslav Nezval considered Deml&#145;s highly associative texts to be related to his own surrealist experiments. He also maintained close contacts to contemporary artists, such as Franti&#154;ek Bílek. Deml&#146;s friendship with the painter and printmaker Váchal&#151;an almost equally complex and difficult person&#151;was short and intense, but it resulted in the present early collaboration. Váchal&#145;s ominous black and yellow woodcuts complement and complete Deml&#146;s brooding, difficult dream-inspired prose poem about life after death. In a striking artistic morocco binding that manifests its own interpretation of the &#147;castle of death&#148; image. One of 500 copies printed. Sánka 183. KVK, OCLC show copies at British Library, University of Chicago, Harvard, Toronto, and Yale only. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Die Malerin

      1912 - Tusche (Feder und Pinsel) über Bleistift auf Karton 47 x 39 cm (Blatt); 30 x 29 cm (Darstellung) Rechts unten signiert und bezeichnet: &#132;Choisy le Conin / &#132;OH! DU-U-U!!&#147; / - Die Malerin - Veröffentlicht: Bilder aus dem Boudoir der Madame CC. Mappenwerk mit 30 Zeichnungen von Choisy le Conin (d.i. Franz von Bayros). München 1912 (Privatdruck). Biografie Franz von Bayros (1866 Zagreb - 1924 Wien) Nach dem Studium an den Kunstakademien in Wien und München lässt sich Franz von Bayros 1890 in Wien nieder. Gesellschaftliche Verbindungen verschaffen dem einer alten österreichischen Adelsfamilie entstammenden Künstler zahlreiche Porträtaufträge, doch findet seine Karriere auf diesem Gebiet ein jähes Ende, nachdem er sich 1896 in schwerem Zerwürfnis von der Stieftochter des Komponisten Johann Strauß scheiden lässt. Um dem Bannstrahl der übermächtigen Schwiegerfamilie zu entkommen, zieht Bayros nach München, wo er sich als Entwerfer eleganter Exlibris-Zeichnungen sowie Illustrator erotischer Bücher und Mappenwerke einen Namen macht. Ein 1911 gegen ihn angestrengter Sittlichkeitsprozess zwingt ihn seine bayerische Wahlheimat zu verlassen und nach Wien zurückzukehren, wo er nicht mehr an seine Erfolge der Münchner Jahre anknüpfen kann. Im Mittelpunkt von Bayros&#145; Schaffen steht das Bild der aufreizend schönen Frau, das vom unschuldigen Backfisch bis zum männermordenden Vamp reicht. Obwohl die Vorliebe des Künstlers für das Pikante und Frivole allgegenwärtig ist, geraten seine ornamental verspielten Zeichnungen und Aquarelle nie zur einseitigen Projektionsfläche erotischer Männerphantasien. Vielmehr erscheint die mal in überbordenden Kostümen des Rokokozeitalters, mal im modischen Kleidungsstil der Belle Epoque dargestellte Frau dank eines ausgeprägten Sinns für Eleganz und Ästhetik sowie Satire und Ironie in der Rolle der überlegenen Verführerin. Diese Wirkung wird durch das zarte Linienspiel, die virtuose Laviertechnik und das stupende Kompositionsvermögen des Künstlers zusätzlich unterstrichen. Bayros' Zeichnungen verkörpern damit par excellence das mondän-dekadente Frauenbild des Fin-de-siècle. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Esboço critico da civilisação chineza . com um prefácio do Exmo. Sr. Dr. Camillo Pessanha.

      Macau, Typ. Mercantil de N.T. Fernandes e Filhos, 1912. - 8°, twentieth century (third quarter?) half brown morocco over marbled boards, spine with raised bands in five unequal compartments, gilt fillets and lettering, marbled endleaves, original gray printed wrappers bound in. Some slight toning and occasional very light foxing. In very good condition. (1 blank l., 2 ll.), lxi, 64 pp., (1 blank l.). *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION. The interesting preface by Camilo Pessanha (dated 1912) occupies almost half the book. The main text has a chapter on traces of ancient civilization in China (including a page of music transcriptions) and a second on the gradual decadence of Chinese civilization and customs. This is a fascinating look at China barely a decade after the Boxer Rebellion, with comments on feng shui (fong soy, pp. 34-5), yin and yang (pp. 13-4), Taoism (p. 16), the cult of the dead, the emperor's library (pp. 25-6), bonzo (self-immolation, p. 39), and magic and superstition.Camilo [de Almeida] Pessanha (1867-1926) helped found the Portuguese symbolist movement while studying at the University of Coimbra, where he and several friends (Eugénio de Castro, António Nobre, Alberto de Oliveira and Alberto Osório de Castro) published Os Insubmissos and Boémia Nova. Pessanha seems to have been indifferent about whether his own works were published, and only a few of his poems appeared in the 1880's and 1890's, scattered in periodicals. In 1894 he left for Macau, where he spent most of the rest of his life. On a trip back to Lisbon in 1916, he dictated many of his works (which he knew by heart, and rarely wrote down), some of which appeared in the review Centauro. Clepsydra, his most famous work, appeared four years later, from the press of his cousin Ana de Castro Osório. He exerted a significant influence on the first generation of Portuguese modernists. J. Antonio Filippe de Moraes Palha was a friend of Camilo Pessanha who appears to have spent considerable time in Macau. In addition to the present book, he wrote De Portugal a Macau através da historia, as well as a book on public health in Macau.*** Gomes, Bibliografia macaense 1159 (without mention of the 2 unnumbered preliminary leaves, or the initial and final blanks). On Camilo Pessanha, see Saraiva & Lopes, História da literatura portuguesa (16th ed.) pp. 1023-4, 1032-3, et passim; Fernando Guimarães in Machado, ed., Dicionário de literatura portuguesa, pp. 375-6; J.C. Seabra Pereira in Biblos, IV, 94-103; Dicionário cronológico de autores portugueses, III, 54-7. Also João Gaspar Simões, "Camilo Pessanha," Encyclopedia Britannica (1972) XVII, 725. Porbase locates two copies, both in the Biblioteca Nacional de Portugal (calling for lxx preliminary leaves, certainly a misprint; Harvard, Yale and National Library of Australia all say lxi preliminary leaves). Not located in Copac. KVK (44 databases searched) locates only the copies already mentioned in the Biblioteca Nacional de Portugal and National Library of Australia.
