        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 Gesetze ganz überwiegend auf Empirismus beruhen. 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.

        Domicilium.

      colophon: Privately printed for Clement Shorter for distribution among his friends 1916 - FIRST EDITION, pp. [ii, blank], 7, [1], 2, blank], 4to, as issued sewn with purple cord into stiff purple wrappers, upper cover printed in black as title-page within single line border, preserved in a chemise and blue morocco backed slip-in case (date 1923 at foot of spine), inscribed to ‘John Lane from C.K.S. July 12, [19]23’, very good The colophon staes 1 of 25 copies, and Purdy calls for these to be numbered and signed by Shorter. In an Appendix, Purdy avers that ‘the limitation was by no means rigidly adhered to’, but goes no further than suggesting that the number ‘might easily be doubled’. Whatever the truth, and the records have been destroyed, this remains a very scarce item, and is ‘the earliest discoverable of young Hardy’s attempts in verse. It describes his birth-place at Higher Bockhampton.’ Purdy also calls for the border on the wrapper to be printed in white: we have a note in our copy of Purdy - ‘also seen in black.’ (Purdy pp. 176-77)

        Cours de linguistique générale. Publié par Charles Bally et Albert Sechehaye. Avec la collaboration de Albert Riedlinger.

      Lausanne & Paris, 1916. Lex 8vo. Uncut in the orig. printed wrappers. A bit of wear, especially to back hinge, which is a bit torn and weak. Small lack of paper to margin of front wrapper and front free end-paper. Capitals a bit worn. Internally very nice and clean. Text-illustrations. 336, (1, -errata) pp.. The first edition of Saussure's seminal main work, which marks a turning point in the history of linguistics and had a monumental impact on related fields such as philosophy, logic, sociology, literary theory, etc. Because of this work, Saussure is considered the father of 20th century linguistics, and the influence of his ideas on the development of linguistic theory in the first half of the 20th century can hardly be overstated.After having published his "Mémoire sur le système primitif des voyelles dans les langues indo-européenes" in 1878, Saussure did not publish another full-length work in his life-time, and his "Course in General Linguistics" is a summary of the three lecture-courses he gave on linguistics at the University of Geneva in 1906-07, 1908-09 and 1910-11. The work was published posthumously by two of his former students and based on lecture notes. In this monumental work, based on his lectures, Saussure sets out to examine the relationship between language (langue) and speaking (parole), both as the relation of a social phenomenon to an individual phenomenon, and as the relation of a system to the concrete use of this system. He determines that there is a structured system of common signs between the users of a language, and that language can be analyzed as a formal system of elements. These elements are signs, signs that again can be divided into expression (signifiant) and content (signifié). This theory of language has deeply influenced all later theories of language.With this work, Ferdinand Saussure (1857-1913) thus came to occupy a seminal place in the history of language theory. In this work he is strongly focused on creating a science of language, free of its former embedment in archaeology, psychology, and also -or perhaps especially- the history of language. And he succeeds. Before his work, linguistics had had been dominated by a historical, though also partly structural, understanding of language, but now, Saussure introduced and determined the purpose and meaning of linguistics, the universal science of language. With Sausurre, linguistics now became, not only the study of the history of languages and of the influences that determine the development of it, but also, and primarily, the study of language and the study of the manifestations of human speech, of what makes human speech possible.Thus, there is no doubt as to the monumental impact of this groundbreaking work, and almost all language theoreticians ever since have been deeply influenced by it. In Europe, the Prague School with e.g. Roman Jakobson and the Copenhagen School with e.g. Louis Hjelmslev, and in America, Leonard Bloomfield and his followers (later Noam Chomsky), were all influenced by Saussure's theories and based their formings of structural linguistics on his basic notions.Saussure's work reached much farther, though, and the principles of structuralism came to deeply influence thinkers such as Jacques Lacan, Claude Lévi-Strauss etc., etc

        Irish War News.

      1916 - The Irish Republic. Vol. 1 no. 1, Dublin, Tuesday April 25 1916 [second day of the Rising]. Small quarto, 4 pp (single folded sheet). A near fine copy of this scarce and fragile item, printed on the lightest of newsprint, with a few small marks and minor tears to folds. The only publication known to have been printed during the Rising in the area of central Dublin controlled by the rebels, in a commandeered printworks at Halston Street. The material in pages 1-3 was probably prepared in advance, but the 'Stop Press' column on page 4 headed 'The Irish Republic' could not have been written before Tuesday morning, since the information included there could not have been reliably anticipated. Written by Pearse while under fire in the GPO, it gives details (mainly accurate) of the fighting to date. 'At the moment of writing this report (9.30 a.m. Tuesday) the Republican forces hold all their positions and the British forces have nowhere broken through. There has been heavy and continuous fighting for nearly 24 hours, the casualties of the enemy being much more numerous than those of the Republican side. The Republican forces everywhere are fighting with splendid gallantry' This is Pearse's last publication, and his last composition apart from the surrender documents and his farewell letters. Surviving copies are often in poor condition, torn, frayed or soiled; the present copy is a fine example. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Untitled holograph sonnet

      Marblehead, MA, 1916. Single sheet measuring 7 1/2 by 9 1/4 inches, likely torn from the guest book belonging to Cummings's Harvard classmate, lifelong friend, and eventual Dial publisher, James Sibley Watson, Jr.. Both Watson and his future wife, Hildegard Lasell have signed the page toward the top, and another guest has signed in between, filling in the year. Signed with the initial "E" and dated August 30, Cummings has composed what at first glance appears to be a conventional fourteen-line sonnet, following an abbaabba rhyme structure in the first stanza: "As if the momentarily incautious reed/ Whence trembled a world's doubtful soul and dim/ Should once again remember the swift sylvan whim/ Of the first poet, -- her spirit doth proceed/ From impertinent original deed/ Of the old maker, ocean; to whose slim/ Smooth body dawn uplifts a golden hymn,/ The younger stars recite their beckoning creed." In the second stanza, though, instead of adhering to the traditional Petrarchian cdecde structure, Cummings inverts the rhyme of the last three lines so that they mirror the first: "This is her very self; wherefrom now springs/ The precise epic of amazing sun/ Now the white lyric of the waking storm;/ Upon whose symmetry fleet hours perform/ Continuing miracle; her soul being one/ With beauty of all unbelievéd things." Although best-known for his calligrammatic poems seemingly bound by neither rhyme nor structure, Cummings employed the sonnet quite often among his body of over 2900 poems. This very early example, which appears to have been composed for an occasion, has never been published. Despite the constraints of form, one can see in this poem some of the sparkling wordplay that is characteristic of Cummings's best work, especially in the second stanza. Cummings manuscripts are rare on the market: the last example to appear at auction was in 1981. Slight toning to margins, else fine.

        A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man

      New York: B. W. Huebsch,, 1916. Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to spine gilt and to front board in blind. Ownership inscription to the front pastedown, bookseller's ticket to the rear pastedown. Spine gently rolled, spine ends frayed, inner hinge of the front board tender, paste traces to the front pastedown. An excellent copy. First edition, first printing. Due at least in part to the adverse reception of the Egoist serialisation of A Portrait, no English printer would print the book for fear of prosecution under the obscenity laws. It was Huebsch who undertook the true first publication in book form, first published on 29 December 1916. He sent from this print run about 750 sets of sheets for issue in the UK the following February. Although the number of copies issued in America is unknown, it is unlikely to have been large since Huebsch had sold out by March and called for a second printing by April.

        SPOON RIVER ANTHOLOGY (Inscribed; in Original 1916 Dust Jacket)

      New York: Macmillan, 1916. Masters, Edgar Lee. SPOON RIVER ANTHOLOGY. New York: The Macmillan Company, 1916. Reprint Edition, published one year after the first edition. A FINE copy in original publisher&#39;s deep blue cloth in a slightly sunned but complete VERY GOOD TO NEAR FINE ORIGINAL DUST JACKET (light tape reinforcement on verso, front flap unclipped, priced $2.25). SIGNED AND DATED July, 1926 on the title page and INSCRIBED AT LENGTH on the half-title, dated June, 1926. We&#39;ve not seen a 1915 inscribed first edition in original dust jacket for many years. This is a compelling alternative: great inscription, fine copy, complete original DJ, published within a year of the original, and far more affordable to the collector. Spoon River Anthology, by Edgar Lee Masters, is a collection of short free-form poems that collectively narrate the epitaphs of the residents of the fictional town of Spoon River; this work has critically been called THE masterpiece of American small town regional poetry (contemporary reviewers compared it favorably with the lyrical quality of Walt Whitman&#39;s Leaves Of Grass). A "Johnson High Spot Of American Literature" and justly celebrated for the last 100 years. . Signed. Hard Cover. Fine/Very Good to Near Fine.

(Surprises) " Signed lower right "Tony Sarg 16". Fine. Reed, The Illustrator in America, p. 141 . An attractive illustration, presumably for the story "Surprises", and a nice contrast between youth and age.

DIE WILLKÜRLICH BEWEGBARE HANDPROTHESE! - ERSTE AUSGABE der berühmten, bahnbrechenden Arbeit. Angeregt durch Kriegsinvalidität forschte Sauerbruch gemeinsam mit dem Züricher Prof. Stodola an Handprothesen. 1915 unternahm Sauerbruch in Greifswald die erste Operation, in der die am Stumpf verbliebenen Muskeln des Patienten nach dem Eingriff mit einer bereits konstruierten Hand verband. Diese Operation erbrachte den Beweis, daß aus dem vorhandenen Muskeln gebildete Kraftquelle die Bewegung der Prothesenfinger ermöglichte. Infolge der damalingen Kriegsereignisse hatte diese Schrift nicht die nötige, ihr zukommende Beachtung gefunden und ist deshalb so selten. Von besonderem Interesse ist die kurze Einführung in die Geschichte der künstlichen Hand. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Herbarium.

      - 7 ark om 40x24 cm i ett enkelt omslag av brunt papper med påskriften "Rosacae". Omslaget revigt; det främre omslaget med skadedjursangrepp. Växterna har gjorts fast med små klisterremsor, en av växterna har lossnat. Med ett klassificeringsformulär längst ned till höger på varje ark med Mobergs namnteckning (han stavade fortfarande sitt förnamn "Wilhelm") samt angivelse av datum och plats där växten hittats. Herbariet innehåller 1: Kvast-spirea; 2: Kråkklöver; 3: Småborre; 4: Nejlikkummer; 5: Revig fingerört; 6: Vildtörne; 7: Blodrotsört. Växterna har plockats i Moshult åren 1916 och 1918, med undantag för blodrotsörten som hittats i Katrineholm 1918; denna förekommer för övrigt i "Rid i natt!" på s. 205: "Ygge satte kruset till hans läppar: han hade här en dryck kokt på blodrotsört. Av blodrotens saft skulle Svedje strax bli hälsosam igen, ty den gav bot för skälva och bröstvärk." och troligen hittar man fler exempel på att växterna senare använts i Mobergs författarskap.
