        Papiri greci e latini

      Firenze: Tipografia Enrico Ariani, 1912. ril (hard cover). Molto buono (Very Good). 8vo. Volume I: nn. 1-112. Con 13 tavole fotocollografiche. Prefazione di G. Vitelli. Volume II: nn. 113-156. Con 5 tavole fotocollografiche. Volume III: nn. 157-279. Con una tavola fotocollografica. Volume IV: nn. 280-445.Opera pubblicata dal 1912 al 1917 I papiri della "Società Italiana (e poi dell'Istituto "Vitelli") vengono di regola pubblicati in una serie di volumi, di cui il primo uscì nel 1912; l'ultimo comparso, nel 1979, è il primo fascicolo del XV volume. I testi pubblicati nella serie dei PSI sono 1468. Ma molti altri papiri sono stati pubblicati su riviste papirologiche o hanno avuto edizioni in sillogi o in monografie. Tutti i papiri della serie PSI, una volta pubblicati, sono stati depositati alla Biblioteca Medicea Laurenziana, oppure riconsegnati all'Egitto e sono ora custoditi al Museo Egizio del Cairo; solo a partire dal secondo dopoguerra, alcuni dei testi, pur pubblicati nella serie dei PSI (dal vol. XIII in poi), sono rimasti nella sede dell'Istituto Papirologico. Tra i testi già editi nella serie dei PSI, conservati all'Istituto "Vitelli", si segnalano per importanza: PSI XIII.1 1296 (pergamene di Antinoe). PSI XIII.1 1304 (Elleniche di Ossirinco). PSI XIV 1390 (Euforione). PSI XIV 1383 (Esiodo, Catalogo delle donne). Vi sono anche papiri figurati (PSI XIII 1370, XIV 1450-52). Il papiro siriaco, sopra citato, fu pubblicato da J.-M. Sauget in Annali dell'Istituto Universitario Orientale 45 (1985) pp. 1-16. Tra i testi in lingua egiziana appartenenti all'Istituto, che siano già pubblicati, spiccano due rotoli ieratici da Tebtynis, veramente notevoli per estensione, l'uno dedicato alla glorificazione del dio Sobek (G. Botti, Copenhagen 1959), l'altro contenente un manuale mitologico (J. Osing - G. Rosati, Firenze 1998). La parte numericamente più rilevante della collezione, tuttavia, è costituita dalla serie dei PSI ancora inediti, che solo per la parte già inventariata arriva a quasi 4000 numeri.

        The Weird of the Wanderer

      London, William Rider & Son Ltd.,, 1912. Being the Papyrus Records of some Incidents in one of the Previous Lives of Mr. Nicholas Crabbe. Octavo. Original blue cloth, decoration to upper board in blind, titles to upper board and spine gilt. With the dust jacket. Trace of spotting to the fore edge but an immaculate copy in the internally backed dust jacket with some restoration at the tips of the somewhat tanned spine panel. First edition. The survival of dust jackets on copies of this book stems from a handful of copies discovered by a rare book dealer in the late 1950s. Notwithstanding none had ever been out of their packaging paper was in parlous state and he had each copy backed with Japanese paper. However this paper in turn proved not to be much better and we had had to make a further repair. Nevertheless a nice looking book and still pretty scarce in this order.

        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 feine Halbledereinbände mit Rückenvergoldung; feines Exemplar.. 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.

        32 Photos and Clippings of a Trip to the Panama Canal

      1912. A collection of 32 original photographs from F.N. Barrett, editor of The American Grocer, and 25 pages of clippings from a published article detailing his trip to the Panama Canal in early 1912. The collection is composed of 22 loose photographs, measuring 5.5" x 3.5"; seven panoramic photographs, measuring 10.5" x 3.5"; and 11 additional photographs, measuring 5.5"x 3" and 4" x 3.25", tipped onto loose pages. All very good with some light wear. Also included are 25 pages of magazine clippings paralleling Barrett's journey, tipped onto stationery for The Grocery and Allied Trade Press of America, as well as one tiny tintype. Barrett journeyed from New Orleans to Panama by way of Costa Rica with another business professional, a U.S. official referred to as "the Senator," and "the Deacon," who had a "predilection to study ethnology." The accompanying article describes the voyage; each stop, including the landscape, local residents, marketplaces (giving particular detail to the American goods found: Campbell's, Franco-American, Beech-Nut, etc.); and details of the Panama dig: number of men employed, soil and rock moved, and costs of the project. The photos were taken at many of the stops along the way, with images of Barrett and his fellow travelers; a coffee plantation; native peoples, including a "Hindoo Picture Maker" (or photographer); various buildings and ruins in Panama; and canal construction. A nice travelogue during the years of American expansion in the early part of the 20th Century, from an interesting perspective. .

        Typescript signed ("George Dewey") of his artcle, "Needed - A Powerful Navy"

      Washington, D.C, december 7, 1912. 4to. 3 pp. on Department of the Navy letterhead; with 1 p. Typed Letter of submission, signed, to William Griffith, editor of the National Sunday Magazine, in New York City. A few light pencil marks in margin, fine in a blue cloth folder . An article for the National Sunday Magazine by Admiral Dewey (1837-1917), the hero of the Battle of Manila in the Spanish American War and the only man to ever attain the rank of Admiral of the Navy. Here is a mere excerpt: "Wars are certain to come and the nation must be prepared. The history of all ages has shown that the proper provision for peace is preparedness for war. A large Navy makes for peace and is an economical asset to the nation, possessing it. National supineness has cost us much in the past and we can not afford to have it repeated. Cornwallis was not properly supported by the Navy and England lost her colonies; Napoleon fell because Villeneuve was no match for Nelson. The Confederacy lost because the Federal Navy blockaded all its ports shutting off supplies and revenues. After Spain's navy was destroyed her colonial possessions were no longer tenable. The defeat of the Russian Navy by the Japanese decided the Russia-Japanese War. Italy in its recent war had command of the sea and Turkey had to make peace. The Greek Navy at the present time has been a powerful factor in the success of the Balkan states against Turkey. To have a weak navy courts attack, disaster and defeat. Diplomatic demands in international affairs will be heeded only if a nation has the necessary force to back them up. The navy is always all important factor in international settlements. This nation can not afford to be content, to have our navy, relegated from second to fourth or fifth place. The Spanish-American War, which lasted about one hundred days, cost us approximately five hundred million dollars - about four times the total annual expenditure for the Navy. And this does not include the yearly pensions resulting there from, to say nothing of the lives sacrificed. Fifty million dollars properly spent on battleships preceding 1898 would have made this a hopeless undertaking for Spain. The United States in recent years has become a world power necessitating the assuming of corresponding responsibilities. These obligations our representative citizens are willing to accept, but turn to our military experts for guidance, and their studies and not political or economic conditions must decide. We must have a navy not to wage but to prevent war. It must be a well balanced Navy. That is battleships with the proper proportion of auxiliaries. Such as destroyers, scouts supply, repair ships, etc.; but battleships are paramount, and the building of them must continue. It requires three years to build a battleship and they can not be bought or improvised. Battleships deteriorate and become obsolete in time -"

        Landscape Gardening in Japan

      Shuyeisha, 1912 - Hardcover, folio, 161pp., 37 monochrome and sepia plates, numerous diagrams (some lightly coloured). Prelims foxed, spotted; some spotting throughout; repaired with new spine; gilt illustrations to boards, slightly worn at edges. Very good given age. This is the second edition of Conder's influential treatise on Japanese landscape gardening, which introduced Japanese gardening to the West. The favourable reception accorded to his work on the "Flowers of Japan" encouraged the author to issue another volume on the more comprehensive Art of Landscape Gardening. The present volume is an exposition of the rules and theories of that art, as followed from ancient to modern times, so far as they can be gathered from a thorough study of native authorities, added to personal observation of the best remaining examples. The chapters range from an historical overview of Japanese gardens, through to studies of landscaping components that include garden stones, lanterns, pagodas, water basins, enclosures, wells, bridges, and arbours, with a final trio of chapters covering ornamental water, vegetation, and garden composition. The line drawings are particularly beautiful for their refined subtlety.

        The Latter Day Saints: A Study of the Mormons in the Light of Economic Conditions

      Williams & Norgate, London 1912 - First edition. A worn copy -- right side of the front board lightened from dampening, chips and tears to the spine. Inscribed by both authors to Reginald Wright Kauffman's uncle Samuel Wright, a book reviewer and scholar: "To my very dearest uncle, and our dearest friend. Ruth Wright Kauffman" (and) "Sept. 1912. Moi aussi! Reginald Wright Kauffman." Upon Samuel Wright's death, the Kauffman's inherited his library, thus his books became their own copies. Kauffman was born and lived in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, although he also maintained homes in Switzerland and Bath, Maine. After graduating from Harvard in 1900, he wrote dozens of stories, mysteries, children's books, and non-fiction titles. He was the editor of the Bangor, Maine *Daily News* from 1941-1947. His novel *The House of Bondage* was widely praised, specifically by Emma Goldman, as the first serious attempt to explore the problem of women and prostitution. Very scarce.

        Korrektive Nasen- und Ohrenplastik (52 pp., 50 Abb, 21 Tafeln).

      . Hdb. speziellen Chir. Ohres u.d. oberen Luftwege, 1/2. - Hrsg. v. Ludwig Katz, Hermann Preysing & Felix Blumenfeld. - Würzburg, Verlag von Kurt Kabitsch, 1912, Gr.8°, (6), 481 pp., 456 Abb., 46 Taf., orig. Halbledereinband.. First Edition of the FIRST MAJOR CONTRIBUTION BY "THE FATHER OF MODERN RHINOPLASTIC SURGERY". G.Aufricht - This contribution marks the establishing of modern rhinoplastic by Jacques Joseph. He "began originally as an orthopedic surgeon, but soon he became involved with the reducution of large, protruding ears. Apparently the rumor of his successful operation spread around, and one day a male patient appeared in his office, asking to have his unshapely large nose reduced. Joseph describes the psychologic effect of the conspicuous nose and makes the fundamental observation that the patient 'is happy to move around unnoticed'. He named this first operation "Rhinomiosis". He liked to coin technical terms, usually Greek and Latin (e.g. "Rhinomiosis" for nasal reconstruction, "Melomioplastik" for a face lift, or "Metopo-mioplastik" for wrinkles and frowns of the forehead). The day before his first operation Joseph tried it on a cadaver. He was extremely thorough, and his analytical approach manifested itself in the exact nose measurements, made before and after operation. I always admired this exactness when he fashioned a skin flap. He would measure the defect and flap from every angle, and carefully study the effect of turning the pedicle. The flap fitted perfectly; it never had to be streched to make up for shortage. His sense of form was that of an artist, I have never seen a better total nasal reconstruction, whether from the forehead or arm, than Joseph's. - Joseph had an ingenious and constructive mind and devised many instruments, some of them obsolete today. He had practically a special instrument for every step of a rhinoplasty. He also devised, for "aseptic" suturing, a horeshoe-shaped doublepronged forceps. It was to thread the suture material without touching either needle or the thread. He gave this method the fancy name "Apodactyle suture" (fingerless suture). This was to prevent stitch infections. Joseph did not use gloves, only three rubber fingers on each hand. He considererd the sense of touch important in endonasal plastic work. He did not wear cap or mask. Nevertheless, he observed accurate aseptic technique and had few complications. This was due to his extreme care and gentleness in handling tissues; he called it "biologic sense". Joseph amassed a vast experience which he crystallized into definite methods. No operative step was ever haphazard, nor without careful consideration. cf.

        MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM

      London: William Heinemann, 1912. First edition, early impression. 40 tipped-in color plates by Arthur Rackham as well as black and white drawings throughout. Large 8vo, original cream cloth lettered in gilt on spine and decorated in gilt on upper cover. 134 pp. A very fine copy internally, the cream cloth bright and quite handsome with the gilt and binding in excellent order with only very minor evidence of age. IMPORTANT AND BEAUTIFUL FIRST EDITION, EARLY IMPRESSION, WITH FINE ILLUSTRATIONS. Shakespeare&#146;s brilliant and delightful comedy was a wonderful exercise and ambitious undertaking for Arthur Rackham. This book ranks with PETER PAN as one of the finest expressions of his "fantasy" style of illustration. This particular title in the Rackham oeuvre is among the scarcest and is in constant demand. <br> William de Morgan wrote to Rackham that he considered his Midsummer Night&#146;s Dream &#147;the most splendid illustrated work of the century so far.&#148; At its publication, the book was widely acclaimed and hugely successful as Rackham continued to be extremely popular with the general public. <br> &#147;Rackham cast his spell over the play; his drawings superseded the work of all his predecessors from Gilbert to Abbey, and (for fifty years) have enriched the imagination; his conception of Puck and Bottom, Titania and Oberon, Helena and Hermia, his gnarled trees and droves of fairies, have represented the visual reality of the Dream for thousands of readers. Here he excelled especially in landscape, and in reconciling dream and reality, giving himself to the luxury of rich detail with a rare generosity.&#148; -Derek Hudson <br> What could be more irresistible than to read Shakespeare&#146;s most enchanting play accompanied by Arthur Rackham&#146;s misty, fairy-laden dream-like images? Opening this book is to transport oneself to the surreal world that Shakespeare wrought to make one query, &#147;Are you sure That we are awake? It seems to me That yet we sleep, we dream...&#148;
