        Die Physiologische Sehnenverpflanzung.

      Berlin, Verlag von Julius Springer Verlag, 1916, Gr.8, XIV, 330 pp., mit 270 zum grossen Teil farbigen Abbildungen, orig. Leinenband. Erste und einzige Auflage dieses großen Klassikers der operativen Orthopädie! Vorwort: Obwohl die letzten 20 Jahre festgestellt haben, daß der Sehnenplastik ein sehr bedeutender Heilwert innewohnt, sind sich doch die Orthopäden über die Einzelheiten der operativen Technik und der Nachbehandlung noch nicht einig. Die Verschiedenheit der Meinungen erstreckt sich hauptsächlich auf die Methode der Sehnenbefestigung. So stand die von Nikoladoni angegebene Methode der Befestigung von Sehne zu Sehne, deren Hauptvertreter Vulpius ist, der von Drobnick angegebenen, von Lange ausgebauten periostalen Befestigungsmethode gegenüber. Der zufällige Umstand, daß die Art der Befestigung den Namen für die verschiedenen Operationsmethoden abgab, ist der Grund dafür gewesen, daß der Art und Weise, wie man das Sehnenende vernähen müsse, eine Bedeutung beigelegt wurde, die ihr im Gesamtbilde nicht zukommt, und daß so der Blick von wichtigeren Dingen abgelenkt wurde. Erst die Methode der Sehnenscheidenauswechselung, bei welcher die verpflanzte Sehne durch die Scheide des Kraftnehmers hindurchgezogen und je nach den Umständen tendinös oder periostal befestigt wurde, hat unseres Erachtens einen wichtigen Anstoß dazu gegeben, die Befestigungsart nur als eine Teilerscheinung der gesamten Frage aufzufassen und vielmehr das gesamte Verfahren einheitlich unter einem Gesichtspunkt zu sehen, nämlich dem der Physiologie. Denn außer der Befestigungsmethode gingen auch in anderen Punkten die Ansichten nicht unbeträchtlich auseinander. Vulpius wählte einen subfaszialen Verlauf, Lange einen subkutanen. Der erstere nähte unter mittlerer Spannung, der letztere unter sehr starker, Stoffel ohne irgend eine Spannung. Lange empfahl eine sechswöchige postoperative Ruhigstellung, Putti fing mit Übungen gleich nach der Operation an und ließ die Patienten auf dem operierten Bein schon nach einigen Wochen gehen. Alle diese Meinungsverschiedenheiten zeigen, daß die Sehnenplastik sich noch in der Entwickelung befindet, und daß die für sie bisher aufgestellten Gesetzeganzüberwiegend auf Empirismusberuhen.Jedenfalls fehlt ihr der allseitig anerkannte Typ, den der Chirurg schon bei zahlreichen Operationen kennt, z. B. in der Gastroenterostomie. Bei dieser unterwirft sich jeder Operateur ganz allgemein gültigen Grundsätzen gleichgültig ob er mit dem Murphyknopf oder mit der Naht arbeitet, ob die Anastomose anterior oder posterior ist, immer führt er sie so aus, daß Serosa mit Serosa, Mukosa mit Mukosa zusammenheilt, und daß das Lumen die erforderliche Weite besitzt. So muß auch in der Sehnenplastik unter allen Umständen dahin gestrebt werden, daß für bestimmte Krankheitsbilder ganz bestimmte Indikationen aufgestellt und auf Grund deren ebenso bestimmte Operationen ausgeführt werden, d. h. wir müssen für die orthopädische Chirurgie in der Frage der Sehnenplastik auf dasselbe Ziel losgehen, das die innere Chirurgie für viele Operationen bereits erreicht hat, nämlich bestimmte Typen zu schaffen. Erst wenn das der Fall ist, können klinische Erfahrungen gegeneinander abgewogen werden und kann auch erst die Operationstechnik so weit ausgebaut werden, daß der Eingriff selber in möglichst kurzer und handwerklich einförmiger Weise sich abspielt, so daß damit die Aussichten des Dauererfolges immer höher steigen. Alle diese Forderungen können vom Standpunkt des physiologischen Gedankens aus, und nur von diesem allein, restlos erfüllt werden. Daß es der Sehnenplastik bisher an solchen als allgemein gültig anerkannten Grundsätzen fehlt, findet seine Erklärung in zwei Tatsachen. Erstens ist eine Plastik eine überaus komplizierte Operation, bei der Meinungsverschiedenheiten von vornherein gegeben sind auch vergeht eine sehr lange Zeit, bis das Dauerresultat festgestellt werden kann schließlich fehlen im Gegensatz zur inneren Chirurgie fast gänzlich Autopsien und anatomische Präparate zur Untersuchung. Zweitens aber, und das ist das bei weitem Wichtigere, wissen wir über die wesentlichen anatomischen und physiologischen Eigentümlichkeiten der Sehnen noch viel zu wenig, als daß wir allgemeine Grundsätze aufstellen könnten. Hier glaubt nun das vorliegende Buch wichtige Lücken auszufüllen es erhebt nicht den Anspruch, endgültige Lehren für die physiologische Sehnenverpflanzung zu verkündigen, sondern es möchte eine Anregung dazu geben, daß, von den gefundenen Gesetzen ausgehend, zum Leitstern allen operativen Handelns nur noch die Physiologie gemacht wird. Wie die ersten Kapitel zeigen, hat die Natur für die in Bewegung bestehende Funktion der Muskeln und Sehnen ganz bestimmte Vorrichtungen getroffen. Es erscheint deshalb als selbstverständlich, daß der Operateur diesen physiologischen Gleitmechanismus benutzt, um auch bei der willkürlichen Anordnung des Sehnenverlaufes dieselben Gesetze in Geltung zu lassen. Die operative und klinische Erfahrung wird dann mit der Zeit erweisen, daß manches von dem, was wir hier vorschlagen, einfacher, vielleicht auch anders gemacht werden muß, wenn man den vollen Erfolge rzielen will, und es ist selbstverständlich, daß nur eine große Zahl von vorurteilsfreien Forschern im Laufe der Jahre allgemein gültige Gesetze für die operative Technik aufstellen kann. Es würde uns eine große Freude sein, wenn dies Buch zu einer solchen von einem umfassenden Gedanken geregelten Zusammenarbeit anregen würde. Seine Lektüre ist nicht leicht. Wir haben uns bemüht, die Sprache so abwechslungsreich zu gestalten, wie der zuweilen erbarmungslos spröde Stoff es zuließ. Wer den vollen Inhalt des Buches in sich aufnehmen will, wird es studieren müssen, und zwar nicht bloß durch wiederholtes Lesen, sondern vor allen Dingen dadurch, daß er aufs neue zum Präpariermesser greift und an der Leiche nachprüft, was wir gefunden haben. Ebenso ist es unbedingt erforderlich, daß jemand, der die Operationen machen will, diese erst zu wiederholten Malen an der Leiche üben muß. Es darf ohne Übertreibung versichert werden, daß ihre exakte Ausführung mit zu dem technisch Subtilsten gehört, was es in der Chirurgie gibt ja, das ganze Operieren ist überhaupt mehr ein liebevolles Nachgehen in den Wegen der Natur als eine brüske Zerstörung des Bestehenden. Da das Buch fast ausschließlich nur ganz Neues und bisher Unbekanntes bringt, so haben wir uns für verpflichtet gehalten, es nicht noch durch übermäßige Literaturangaben und Zitate zu belasten. Zwar sind diejenigen Werke genannt, auf welchen die Untersuchungen zum Teil aufgebaut sind, doch muß im übrigen der Leser selbst an Hand der anatomischen und topographischen Atlanten dort sein Gedächtnis auffrischen, wo es nicht mehr ganz sicher ist. Wie aus der Kapiteleinteilung des Werkes hervorgeht, sind die einzelnen Gebiete getrennt bearbeitet worden. Doch hat zwischen uns in jedem Stadium der zu gleicher Zeit durchgeführten Arbeit das engste Einvernehmen und der regste Gedankenaustausch geherrscht, so daß einer dem andern aus seinem Arbeitskreis neue Anregungen und Förderungen gab. Deshalb kann das Buch im ganzen wohl als eine organische Einheit angesprochen werden. Die Operationslehre, wo alte klinische Erfahrung, neue anatomische und physiologische Kenntnisse und die Praxis des Operationssaales zusammenflössen, trägt die gemeinsame Namenszeichnung. Das Manuskript, das sprachlich in allen Teilen gemeinsam abgefaßt wurde, ist etwa im August 1914 abgeschlossen worden der Ausbruch des großen Krieges hat seine Drucklegung verzögert. Es ist uns ein Bedürfnis und zugleich eine Ehrenpflicht, allen zu danken, die uns bei unserer Arbeit geholfen haben. Das ist in erster Reihe Herr Prosektor Dr. Koch, der in der denkbar freundlichsten Weise uns gestattete, in der von ihm geleiteten pathologischen Abteilung des Berliner städtischen Krankenhauses am Urban zu forschen und zu arbeiten, wobei uns auch der erste Assistent des Institutes, Herr Dr. Schaff er, mit unermüdlicher Liebenswürdigkeit entgegenkam. Die Zeichnungen nach Präparaten stammen von Fräulein Lisbeth Krause, Berlin, die mikroskopischen Zeichnungen von Fräulein Bertha Neresheimer, München. Die Originale sind mit der größten Sorgfalt und Mühe hergestellt worden, und die Damen haben es sich nicht verdrießen lassen, auf unser Erfordern so lange an den Bildern zu verbessern, bis auch der letzte Rest einwandfreier Darstellung herausgeholt war. Daß diese Bilder in der Reproduktion alles wiedergeben, was die Originale enthalten, ist der Sorgfalt zu danken, mit welcher die Verlagsbuchhandlung sowohl den illustrativen Teil als auch sonst das Buch bedacht hat, und wir danken deshalb Herrn Julius Springer auf das Wärmste für das große Interess, das er dem Buch bezeigt hat.Biesalskin.

Gerolamo Gaslini nasce a Monza il 3 luglio 1877 da Pietro, uno dei pionieri della moderna industria degli oli di semi, e da Bambina Baggioli. Gaslini si trasferisce a Genova all?inizio dell?ultimo decennio del XIX secolo. Nel 1896 fonda una ditta inserendosi nel commercio degli oli di semi. Nel gennaio del 1907, insieme al fratello Egidio costituisce la società in nome collettivo Fratelli Gaslini. Nel 1914 i due fratelli impiantano una fabbrica di spremitura e raffinazione di olio di semi a Bolzaneto, in Val Polcevera. L?impresa si trasforma in società anonima con sede a Genova, con un capitale che nel giugno 1916 è di 5 milioni, portato successivamente a 10 milioni, diviso in parti uguali fra i due fratelli. Nel dopoguerra la Gaslini avvia una strategia espansiva che si concretizza nell?acquisizione di impianti di spremitura e raffinazione a Trieste e a Fiume, accrescendo le sue quote di mercato. Dal 1949, tuttavia, Gaslini opera una scelta precisa che lega le vicende dell?impresa a quelle dell?Istituto pediatrico. Il 28 novembre di quell?anno, infatti, egli costituisce la Fondazione Gerolamo Gaslini con lo scopo di potenziare l?Istituto, trasferendole in proprietà l?intero capitale sociale della società anonima Gaslini, per un valore totale di 1,3 miliardi di lire, rappresentante l?intero suo patrimonio. A partire dal momento in cui la Fondazione diventa persona giuridica di diritto pubblico, nel novembre 1950, le rendite della Gaslini e delle partecipazioni azionarie di Gaslini affluiscono alla Fondazione, contribuendo così al funzionamento dell?Ospedale.

Considerable scuffing on the boards, cord has been replaced, a few leaves detached, a couple of images removed or otherwise lacking near very good, images with modest silvering, mostly near fine. Contains well over 300 gelatin-silver images, plus additional small vignettes trimmed from larger photos. A modest amount of captions. An album kept by a young woman, with most of the identifiable locations in the area surrounding San Antonio, Texas. Although many of the photos aren't geographically labeled one shows Leavenworth, Texas near San Antonio and another photo is from the Y.M.C.A. camp Idlewilde in the Dallas suburbs, which leads us to believe this was a Texas woman. Other photos show the woman and her friends working on a chicken farm, having picnics, horseback riding, and later a group of them are posed in their graduation caps and gowns. Two women are photographed playing ukulele with captions such as "are they hula maidens" and "underneath the sheltering palms." The album is full of portrait style photos and candids around the family farm as well as photos of uniformed soldiers visiting home. One section of photos shows the girls camping and posed in bathing costumes which reads "sea nymphs" underneath. A group photo of young men and women in a field has a printed caption reading "gathering the nuts."An extensive collection of photographs documenting World War I-era life in Texas.

[Together with:] Photograph album of the Smythe family. 2 volumes, octavo and landscape octavo: The Cavalier (270 x 195 mm) handmade binding of cream-coloured card covers stitched to a ribbed silk spine, front cover hand-painted with a gilt border enclosing a running decoration of holly and berries, central panel hand-painted with three ringing bells entwined with ropework that drops down to form the lettering "The Cavalier Xmas 1916"; photograph album: attractive art deco binding of multicoloured striped cloth with chevron pattern, 36 leaves of grey heavy card stock, photographs mounted both sides, captioned throughout. Some wear to extremities of both volumes but overall in very good condition. Unique handmade "magazine" constructed by a group of ladies of the Scottish county set, to be borrowed (at a nominal rate) by a select group of recipients, to help raise funds for the war effort, rather in the manner of a circulating library; a printed receipt shows that the donation of £1 5 shillings went to the Mesopotamia Comforts Fund. The moving spirit here was Barbara Emily Smythe (b.1899) - daughter of Katherine Jane Bagot (1859-1952) and Lt-Col. David Murray Smythe (1850-1928) – and she features prominently in the accompanying photograph album. She was assisted by the three Misses Drummond, Miss Arbuthnot and Miss Newdigate. There were clearly a number of "issues" of "The Cavalier" and this one features stories and poems. One story, "Robin's Wish", concludes by noting that "We never saw Cousin Paul again. A year later he was killed in the Great War – fighting on the Russian front (I can't spell the name of the place he was killed at)" – this is followed by a handmade Christmas card entitled "Christmas Leave", showing a young man in naval uniform sitting by the fireside surrounded by children – "Cousin Paul" was perhaps lost on the North Russia convoys. Another relation, Charles Stewart, is revealed in an acrostic poem, as is Latakia, the principal Syrian port on the Mediterranean (which links to the Mesopotamian campaign). Another poem ("The Ballad of a 'Diable Bleu'") sings the praises of the French Chasseurs Alpin – no doubt a rather romantic figure in the minds of these Scottish ladies. The rear pastedown of The Cavalier carries the names of some 15 members of the fund-raising circle, with addresses in Perth, Errol, Newcastle, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Liverpool, Carlisle, Canterbury, Nuneaton, Hampton-on-Thames, Sunningdale, and four in London (including Lady Hilda Murray and Lady Betty Hay); these each have a pocket made from hessian strips, explained on the Editorial page: "No reader must keep the 'Cavalier' longer than two days. If kept longer ½d. must be paid for every extra day. Please put six penny stamps in the pocket under your name, & send it on to the next address. The money thus made goes to War Funds & the Queens Hospital for Children". Loosely inserted is an autograph letter signed from Barbara E. Smythe to an unnamed recipient: "I hope this will reach you safely & will interest you. The illustrations are often better than in that no: - I was rather in a hurry! Ever & your affect: niece Barbara E. Smythe" (dated 5 September 1917, Moulin Almond, Perth). "The Cavalier" contents: 183 pp. (paginated): Editorial details, 3pp, one full=page coloured "Christmas Greetings"; "Robin's Wish" (story) 67 pp, 4 full-page colour illustrations; "Christmas Leave" hand-painted card; "Grandmama" (story) 20 pp, one full=page colour illustration; "The Fair City" (poem) 1 page, one full=page colour illustration; "The Ballad of a 'Diable Bleu'" (poem) 6pp, one full-page colour illustration; "The Cavalier Club" (letter from the Editor) 2pp; "Father Christmas in Charge" (story) 17 pp; "Acrostic" (poem) one page; "Mist" (poem) one page; "The Passing Year" (poem) 5pp; "Night" (poem) one page; printed receipt from the Mesopotamia Comforts Fund (dated 25 November 1916) acknowledging receipt of £1 5 shillings; "Fire-Flame" (story) 54 pp, 2 full-page illustrations (one colour, one black & white); "Answer to the Acrostic" half page. The extensively-captioned photograph album offers a captivating panorama of upper middle class life during the 1920s, concentrated around a well-connected Scottish county family: there are approximately 450 original black and white photographs (largely 70 x 45 mm) of the Smythe family and their friends and relations covering the period from autumn 1924 to April 1930; including mages of their home at Moulin Almond, near Methven, Perthshire, holidaying in Tenerife and in Dumfries & Galloway, attending hunt balls, weddings, shooting parties, the summer school of music at St Andrews (including a number of images of composer Harold Craxton (1885-1971), father of the painter John Craxton), curling on Methven Loch, one snap of Prince von Weikersheim and Lord Edward and Gay Gleichen, scenes at the 1929 general election (which resulted in a hung parliament; it was known as the "Flapper Election" because women aged between 21 and 29 were allowed to vote for the first time; images here of family friend and Conservative MP for Perth, Noel Skelton (1880-1935)). An attractive and poignant memento of the Home Front during the Great War.

        Passed by the Censor.

      ?Le Havre: , 1916. Folio. 63 sheets (470 × 312 mm) loose in khaki portfolio as issued; title leaf, "préface" in facsimile holograph, contents leaf printed in red and black, 30 coloured lithographic portraits from Woog's pencil and crayon sketches as listed, all but one accompanied by a leaf with a humorous calligraphic poem within a scroll, one such leaf covering two portraits, an additional unidentified portrait, and a "finis" leaf with image of a crashing Zeppelin. The portfolio a little soiled, spotted and nibbled on the flaps, but remains sound and attractive in a utilitarian fashion, the contents clean and entirely sound, overall very good. Extremely uncommon, no location on Copac, OCLC identifies two copies - LoC and Princeton, both listed under the incorrect name of "Raymond Wood" - a copy also in the Le Havre Municipal Archives noting 32 plates, and suggesting a limitation of 115 copies. Attractive collection of skilfully rendered portraits - some sensitively naturalistic, others with a touch of sympathetic satire - of British and French personalities at the British Base Depôt at Le Havre where Woog was attached as a liaison officer from 1915 until the end of the war. One of Woog's colleagues on the Mission Militaire Française, here portrayed as "Herzog - Adjutant Interpète" is better known as André Maurois (born Émile Salomon Wilhelm Herzog), who recorded his own experiences in the highly successful comic novel Les silences du colonel Bramble (1926) in which the author appears in the guise of the French interpreter Aurelle. Maurois recalled Woog in his autobiography I Remember, I Remember (1942), as "a talented painter and charming companion" (p. 120). In fact, Woog was the first person to read Bramble in manuscript and encouraged Maurois to publish (see Jean Bothorel's biography of the publisher Bernard Grasset). The wraps of the first edition featured a portrait by Woog of Col. Asser, base commander at Le Havre, representing Bramble. A full-length portrait of Asser is inevitably the first in the portfolio. The majority of the portraits are accompanied by witty rhymes composed by Lieut., Staniforth, Assistant Provost Marshal, set within elaborate scrolls with banderolles, the work of H. Mostyn-Prichard, Cox's agent on the base, both of whom also feature among the portraits. In his preface Woog explains that he had no intention of publishing these sketches "but my victims insisted that their friends ought to be given the chance to see the whole in book form". Raymond Woog (1875-1949) was born in Paris, studied with Gustave Moreau, and became a full member of the Société National des Beaux-Arts in 1911, exhibiting widely until his death in 1949, he has works in the Musée de Roubaix, Musée du Luxembourg, the Ministère de l'Éducation nationale, and the French embassy in Berlin. A highly engaging series of portraits, surprisingly well produced considering the exigencies of the time - being printed on excellent heavy stock paper – and presented here in an appealing "sur la campagne" portfolio.

        Signed Hand Written: The First Day of the Somme

      Autograph signed letter; two pages on Northampton General Hospital head note paper, dated 12th July 1916. Together with photographs of Keeble and his wife and a small number of documents including Demobilization Certificate. 62033 Private later Acting Sergeant Walter Keeble 2nd Battalion Middlesex Regiment went over the top on July the 1st 1916, taking part in perhaps the worst days action ever undertaken by the British Army. Advancing over Mash Valley near Ovilliers he was caught between two German lines, wounded on the 2nd he is left lying out with no food and little water until his rescue on the 7th. His account contained in what appears to be an uncensored letter to his wife describes his experiences "No food or water only rain water that I caught in my helmet" "The best bit of luck was I had no rifle or else I should not have been here now". "I think my poor old Batt. was wiped out" In fact the 2nd Battalion had around 650 casualties on the 1st July 1916. Together with small framed photographs of Walter, contemporary group postcard photo of his unit, note to him from a Lieutenant J.Kenneth Grayson and a photographic medallion with a small colour tinted photograph him in uniform and his wife on the reverse. The photograph of him and his wife, probably taken towards the end of the war shows her wearing the medallion. Surely an almost unique record of endurance, particularly unusual in being recorded first hand just a week later. All items contained in a specially made archive box.
