        Binding title:] Peines [et] supplices.

      [France/Belgium, early 20th century]. - 4to (235 x 200 mm). [52 pp.] Album containing 24 small contact prints (25 x 25 mm) and 153 albumen or gelatin silver prints (65 x 80 mm), both mostly numbered and captioned in French on the photograph, 16 photographic reproductions of paintings or drawings (175 x 130 mm), 2 albumen prints of nudes and 17 silver gelatin prints of sadomasochistic scenes (105 x 150 mm). Contemporary black cloth, with the title ("H. Rabier - peines - supplices") on the spine. Captivating erotic photo album containing both original photographs and reproductions on the themes of "punishment and penance", which in most cases means flagellation. Sadomasochism, including flagellation, was very popular in the Belle Époque. In France, government restrictions were slightly looser than in other European countries, which led to the country producing almost all photographic pornography in the world as well as having an advanced sex industry. Descriptions note that every quality brothel in Paris contained a "torture chamber" and numerous books on the subject appeared, both scientific such as Marius Boisson's "Flagellomanie" (1912) and pornographic. This specific album was probably compiled by a certain H[ector] Rabier, whose name is inscribed on the spine and was possibly a young Belgian. Nothing is known of Rabier other than that he wrote an introduction for "Trois drames" (Gent, 1932) by the Belgian poet and dramatist Edgar Tant (1889-1963). Rabier also features as a character in one of these plays, alongside a fictional version Tant, in which it is stated that he is identical in age to the fictional Tant. Among the reproductions of prints in this album can be found various images of an erotic nature showing the flagellation of women by men and women and non-erotic images of the torture and punishment of (female) heretics and witches including reproductions of artworks. A few series do not involve women and show various types of corporal punishment in the French colonies of Algeria and Indochina and flogging in the British army. A series of 27 images is without direct punishment and shows life in the Parisian women's prison of Saint Lazare, which also doubled as a hospital for the city's prostitutes. 12 photographs are reproductions of wood engravings and on most of the images the pins which were used to hold the engraving are visible. The images show the cruel murder and torture of nude women by Cossacks. Of the original photographs, two "academic nudes" show a woman from the back kneeling on top of a chair or hanging face down over a chair or cabinet. The 17 other photographs all show a demi-clad woman being bound or tortured by an "oriental" man or monks. A montage of small images suggests that the woman and monk photographs, probably suggesting a witch or heretic being tortured by the inquisition, formed part of a larger collection on this subject. Although these photographs were obviously intended as pornographic images, it is interesting to note that they are hardly more explicit than contemporary history paintings at the Salon, or the images in popular histories, as the content of this album shows. - Spine somewhat worn and discoloured. Pages of the album very lightly foxed and some of the photographs partly detached from the page, some of the larger photographs lightly worn and discoloured at the edges; overall both album and photographs are in good condition.

        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.

        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 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.

        The human factor in works management

      New York: McGraw-Hill, 1912. Hartness, James (1861-1934). The human factor in works management. ix, 159pp. New York: McGraw-Hill, 1912. 191 x 131 mm. Original cloth, gilt-stamped front cover and spine. Fine. Presentation Copy, inscribed by Hartness on the front endpaper: "To Mr. Harry Lee Coe With many happy memories and grateful esteem, the author. Springfield Vermont Jan. 13 1915. James Hartness." First Edition. Hartness was a major inventor of improved machine tools and measuring techniques, who also made pioneering contributions to industrial management. In his Human Factor in Works Management, a reaction to Frederick Winslow Taylor's Principles of Scientific Management (1911), Hartness set forth three of his basic ideas: "(1) that many of the features of the new approach to management were too mechanistic; (2) that many of the new efficiency engineers were completely ignoring human nature; and (3) that the problem of increasing efficiency included psychology as well as engineering and economics" (Nanda, Management Thought, p. 83). Hartness's work can be regarded as one of the foundations of the human relations school of management, together with the works of Frank and Lillian Moller Gilbreth. The recipient of this copy was most likely the Harry Lee Coe who received a bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Michigan in 1908.

      München, R. Piper & Co., 1912. 104 + 2 S. OBrosch. EA. Mit acht Tafeln, drei Tabellen sowie den zehn in den Text gedruckten Holzschnitten. - Ebd. fachmännisch restauriert, leicht feuchtigkeitsrandig, V. etw. fleckig, Gbrsp. - Kandinsky, (1866 - 1944), studierte in Moskau Jura und Volkswirtschaft und befaßte sich außerdem mit Ethnographie. Die ihm nach Promotion und Assistentenzeit an der Juristischen Fakultät in Moskau offenstehende Universitätskarriere schlug er nicht ein, sondern ging 1896 zum Kunststudium nach München. Sein Zugang zur Kunst blieb wissenschaftlich geprägt. Systematisch schrieb er Beobachtungen zur Farbenwirkung nieder im Hinblick auf eine Theorie von objektiver Gültigkeit. Nach kurzer Ausbildungszeit in der Kunstschule Anton Azbès und an der Akademie bei Franz Stuck unterrichtete K. in der \"Phalanx\" selbst, u.a. Gabriele Münter. Mit ihr unternahm er Reisen nach Holland, Tunesien und Italien und verbrachte das Jahr 1906/07 in Sèvres bei Paris. Seit 1908 ließen sich beide wieder in München nieder und malten während der Sommermonate gemeinsam mit Alexej Jawlensky und Marianne von Werefkin in Murnau (Oberbayern) sowie mit Franz Marc in Sindelsdorf. Die Jahre bis 1914 waren von kunstpolitischem Engagement Kandinskys geprägt, der Künstler auf internationaler Ebene miteinander in Verbindung bringen wollte: Er leitete 1909 die \"Neue Künstlervereinigung München\", gab mit Marc 1912 den Almanach Der Blaue Reiter heraus und organisierte zwei Ausstellungen der \"Redaktion des Blauen Reiter\". Er verfaßte theoretische Schriften wie sein Buch \"Über das Geistige in der Kunst\" (1911), dessen kulturkritischer Charakter den Nerv der Zeit traf, die als Antwort auf vernichtende Kritik entstandenen autobiographischen Rückblicke (1913), ferner den Gedichtband Klänge (1913) sowie Bühnenkompositionen. ...

        Letter from the prominent African-American politician and film producer, Dr. George E. Cannon, forwarding a circular, "Know the Truth! Statement from Entire Colored Delegation of the National Progressive Convention": Chicago, Aug. 7, 1912

      [New York]: [Mail & Express Job Print], 1912. The one-page typed, autographed letter from George E. Cannon, M.D., is on his personal stationery, addressed to H. C. Jarrett of Boston, and dated 27 September 1912. The matching envelope is franked with a red 2-cent Washington stamp (Scott #406). Both are in nice shape. The envelope shows some wear along its right edge where it was roughly opened; the letter has some mailing folds. Cannon's signature is crisp and clear. Cannon, a Lincoln University graduate, was a prominent member of New Jersey's African-American community. He founded a savings and loan to serve black-owned businesses and won a number of civil rights concessions from the city's notoriously corrupt Democratic boss, Frank Hague. In 1915, after viewing D.W. Griffith's Birth of a Nation, Cannon became so appalled that he established the Frederick Douglass Film Company and produced feature films depicting blacks as distinguished, professional, and successful citizens, including The Scapegoat, The Colored American Winning His Suit, and Heroic Negro Soldiers of the World War . A life-long Republican, who seconded the nomination of Calvin Coolidge at the 1924 Republican Convention, Cannon supported Roosevelt's third-party Progressive campaign. The enclosed circular, signed in print by the all of the African-American convention delegates, responded to charges by the anti-Roosevelt press that the Progressive Party was a racist organization that banned African-Americans from participatiom. In fact, this was not the case. Although the party rejected renegade mixed and all-black delegations from Florida and Mississippi, as the pamphlet points out, neither the party nor its convention were afflicted with "Lilly Whitism:" "For the first time in the history of the country colored citizens from the North and East have been sitting as delegates in a great National Convention, . . . the Progressive Party - a New Political Party- which knows no North, no South, no East , no West, no Race, no Creed, no Sex - but only American Citizenship as a party requisite. . . . The charge of "lily-whitism" was made for the sole and specific purpose of engendering political strife and embarrassment, with the hope of alienating the colored vote. Both the circular and Cannon's autograph are quite scarce. As of 2017, OCLC shows the circular being held by only three institutions, and there is only one auction record listed between ABPC and the Rare Book Hub. No other examples are available for sale within the trade.

      1912 - [With] MAUNDSLAY (Alfred P.) A Note on the Position and Extent of the great temple Enclosure of Tenochititlan and the position, structure and orientation of teocalli of Huitzilopochtli. First edition. 18 vols. (2 text 16 altas). 404 plates, mostly autotypes, some tinted & some coloured lithographs. Large oblong folio. lightly rubbed. Text in modern cloth, atlases in original printed boards, rebacked, some marginal annotations in red pencil, most folding plates repaired at fold, some small marginal tears none affecting images. London, 1889 - One of the great monuments in the history of Mayan studies: Alfred Maudslay's photographs and drawings of a number of the major Mayan sites such as Quirigua, Copan, Chjichen Itza, Palenque and Yaxchiland, executed during his explorations in Central America between 1881 and 1900. Maudslay's work was published as part of the Biologia Centrali-Americana edited by Frederick DuCane Goldman and Osbert Salvin. Most of that massive set is devoted to natural history, and Maudslay's work was added almost as an afterthought. Maudslay, an archaeologist, was fascinated by the Mayan ruins and set himself the task of recording the architecture and monuments. He worked with a large wet-plate camera, developing his photographs on the spot. He also made extensive casts. In London, he hired an artist, Miss Annie Hunter, to draw accurate lithographic plates from his photographs and casts. The result is this stunning series of plates. Michael Coe says, ?It is impossible to exaggerate the importance to Maya research of Maudslay's published work. For the first time, Maya epigraphers had large-scale, incredibly accurate illustrations of complete Classic Text.? (Breaking the Maya Code). Coe also credits Maudslay with being the greatest recorder of Mayan inscriptions. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        [MANUFACTURING INDUSTRY; ARGENTINA] Agar Cross & Co., Buenos Aires : a photographic archive, c 1912

      A group of twenty-one large format bromide print photographs (230 x 150 mm), all unmounted (some minor edge tears and curling, but overall good condition), showing the premises of the major Argentinian manufacturing import enterprise, Agar Cross & Co. Ltd, Buenos Aires, c 1912. Photographer unknown. Most of the photographs bear a typed caption verso. Agar Cross & Co. imported machinery into the fabulously lucrative South American market from all over the world. A connection with Australian exporters was clearly already established at this time. One of the images shows a large number of administrative staff working in the Australian section, with the caption reading: Australian harvesters, windmills, threshers, dairy and ice machines. Another view of the exterior of the building, similar to the one in this group, is held in the Museum Victoria (Melbourne) collection, in an archive belonging to the Ballarat agricultural manufacturing company of H.V. McKay, Sunshine Factories & Products, which strengthens the evidence for a developed Australian interest in the Argentinian market for manufactured goods. All kinds of industrial and agricultural machinery are shown in the other photographs in this archive, including coaches, ploughs, pumps, boilers, machine tools, woodworking machines, and electric motors. A precious visual documentation of the international trade in manufactured goods between Australia, South America and Europe prior to World War 1.
