        Essays on the surgery of the temporal bone

      London: Macmillan, 1919. Ballance, Charles Alfred (1856-1936) and Charles David Green. Essays on the surgery of the temporal bone. 2 vols. xxiv, 253, [1]; xiii, 255-612pp. 125 plates, many with separate keys. London: Macmillan, 1919. 297 x 222 mm. Original cloth, a little shaken, rear inner hinge of Vol. I partly split, cloth on front cover of Vol. II a bit bubbled. Light toning but a good copy. Ex-library, with library bookplates inside front covers, library labels on spines, embossed library stamps on several leaves, and card pockets, date due slips and bar code labels inside back covers. First Edition of this beautifully produced classic of neurosurgery and aural surgery, which contains ?much clinical wisdom and many magnificent illustrations? (Weir, p. 166). ?Ballance popularized the operation of radical mastoidectomy for advanced middle ear infection (1890), standardized an approach to drain or excise temporal brain abscesses, and was the first to clearly understand the neurological signs of cerebellar abscess (1894). Ballance also devised cranial base approaches to attack infectious thrombophlebitis of the lateral, petrosal, and cavernous sinuses. He was the first to completely remove an acoustic tumor (1894); 18 years later, the patient remained well. Ballance also drained a posterior fossa subdural hematoma (1906) and successfully sectioned the auditory nerve for Meniere?s syndrome (1908). . . . His two-volume set, Essays on the Surgery of the Temporal Bone (1919), remains a brilliantly written and illustrated classic. . . . Ballance was second only to Horsley in reputation as a pioneer British neurological surgeon. Described as a painstakingly slow but delicate and meticulous operator, Ballance made a contribution to neurosurgery and temporal bone surgery that was immense? (Stone). Garrison-Morton 4889.1.

        Sibirské Hloží Sbírka Satyrickch [Siberian Thistles -- A Collection of Satiric Cartoons]

      Irkutsku, 1919. Wraps. Good. Oblong, 23 by 25 cm. 12 leaves, including panorama plus wraps, with mostly color cartoons only on rectos. The Czech Legion was formed during the First World War by Czechoslavakian patriots hoping to gain independence from the Austro-Hungarian Empire by fighting along with the Entente allies, including significantly, Russia. The Tsarist government was initially lukewarm in its handling of Czech warriors but after the Czech nationals proved themselves an effective fighting unit, Russia allowed for the formation of the Legion and permitted the Legion to recruit Czech and Slovak prisoners-of-war. (Remember that as part of the Austrian territory, Czech conscripts would have been part of the Austrian army which was fighting Russia.) Not long after, however, came the Bolshevik Revolution, and things became dicey for the Legion. The Bolsheviks first priority was suing for peace with Germany, which had in fact done what it could to stir up the Revolution, and the Central Powers, led by Germany, had a strong interest in shutting down the Czech Legion. The Czechs managed to defeat the German army though and negotiated passage through Siberia. This did not occur as planned, though, as mutual suspicions between the Czechs and the Bolsheviks grew. The upshot was that the Czech Legion not only remained intact, but it also made common cause with the White Russians fighting the Bolsheviks. With a force approximately 60,000 men strong, the Legion proved again a very potent fighting machine, winning many battles against the struggling Soviet forces, and by mid-1919 it actually controlled the entire Trans-Siberian Railroad line. But their fortunes turned during the Summer, as the Soviet troops gathered strength, both in numbers and fighting ability, and started to eat away at the territory a short time earlier controlled by the Whites. As the Legion had to give up one piece of the railroad line after another, its final efforts were dedicated to a complete evacuation in Vladivostok, which it achieved with many a cliffhanger. The returning Legionnaires would come to form the nucleus of the Czechoslavak army. In any case, these cartoons appeared at a time that the Legion was flush with success, and it obviously must have had control of a printing press in Irkutsk. The virulent anti-Sovietism may have been an outgrowth of its war against the Bolsheviks, but one can see that in many ways these cartoons anticipated much later ridicule and some of the fears expressed about the Soviets were indeed prophetic. Scarce. No copies located on OCLC FirstServe. Heavily toned, since printed on cheap newspaper stock, with considerable wear.

        South

      London: William Heinemann,, 1919. The Story of Shackleton's Last Expedition 1914?-1917. Octavo. Original midnight-blue combed cloth, title in silver to the spine and to the upper board together with a large block of Endurance stuck in the ice, publisher's device in blind to lower board. Colour frontispiece and 87 half-tone plates, folding map at the rear. Almost imperceptible mottling on the upper board, corners just bumped, but the silver blocking bright and unflaked, hinges completely sound, text browned as usual, but the internal binding entirely uncracked, typical short tear to the stub of the map, a very good copy indeed. First edition, first impression. An attractively, but sadly not solidly produced book, most often encountered in something less than collectable condition, this copy however is clean, tight and entirely sound, and highly desirable thus. It is bound in a previous;y unrecorded, more robust variant of the usual, fragile cloth, reminiscent of that used on the standard edition of the South Polar Times. "The failure of Shackleton's Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition to even reach the Antarctic continent, much less to cross it via the South Pole, has become the great polar success story of the twentieth century" (Books on Ice). Shackleton embarked in 1914 on the Endurance to make the first traverse of the Antarctic continent; a journey of some 1800 miles from sea to sea. But 1915 turned into an unusually icy year in Antarctica; after drifting trapped in the ice for nine months, the Endurance was crushed in the ice on October 27. "Shackleton now showed his supreme qualities of leadership. With five companions he made a voyage of 800 miles in a 22-foot boat through some of the stormiest seas in the world, crossed the unknown lofty interior of South Georgia, and reached a Norwegian whaling station on the north coast. After three attempts. Shackleton succeeded (30 August 1916) in rescuing the rest of the Endurance party and bringing them to South America" (DNB). Amazingly, all members of the Endurance party survived the ordeal, attributing their survival to Shackleton's exceptional leadership qualities. In recent years, this factor has led to the re-interpretation of the book in terms of a leadership and man-management manual, and several influential attempts have been made to distil from the narrative the underlying principles of Shackleton's command in order that they might be applied more widely. As Apsley Cherry-Garrard remarked in Worst Journey in the World; "For a joint scientific and geographical piece of organization, give me Scott; for a Winter Journey, Wilson; for a dash to the Pole and nothing else, Amundsen; and if I am in the devil of a hole and want to get out of it, give me Shackleton every time."

        Songs of Democracy

      David McKay, Publisher Philadelphia (1919) - First Edition. Octavo, original green cloth, gilt lettering at spine, gilt top page edge. From the introduction: "Whatever may be the verdict of history upon the grade of Mr. Wilson's statesmanship of this we may be sure even today he is a successful politician. He succeeds in performing at the same time the difficult exploit of keeping his ear to the ground. With a few notable exceptions he has spoken the convictions of that average man in whom Whitman saw the salvation of America and at last the world. In selecting these poems while I have sought always to emphasize those giving most vivid expression to the ideas with which the consciousness of the world today is burning I have tried to keep the organism of Leaves of Grass intact."

        South

      London: William Heinemann,, 1919. The Story of Shackleton's Last Expedition 1914?-1917. Octavo. Original midnight-blue cloth, title in silver to the spine and to the front board together with a large block of Endurance stuck in the ice, publisher's device in blind to lower board. Colour frontispiece and 87 half-tone plates, folding map at the rear. Head and tail of the spine slightly crumpled, a little whitened on the spine edges and joints, corners a touch bumped, later ownership inscription to the front free endpaper, evenly browned as usual, the oft-encountered tear to the map-stub professionally repaired , but a far better copy than is usual, the cloth bright, hinges and text-block remaining tight, a highly desirable copy. First edition, first impression. "The failure of Shackleton's Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition to even reach the Antarctic continent, much less to cross it via the South Pole, has become the great polar success story of the twentieth century" (Books on Ice). Shackleton embarked in 1914 on the Endurance to make the first traverse of the Antarctic continent; a journey of some 1800 miles from sea to sea. But 1915 turned into an unusually icy year in Antarctica; after drifting trapped in the ice for nine months, the Endurance was crushed in the ice on October 27. "Shackleton now showed his supreme qualities of leadership. With five companions he made a voyage of 800 miles in a 22-foot boat through some of the stormiest seas in the world, crossed the unknown lofty interior of South Georgia, and reached a Norwegian whaling station on the north coast. After three attempts. Shackleton succeeded (30 August 1916) in rescuing the rest of the Endurance party and bringing them to South America" (DNB). Amazingly, all members of the Endurance party survived the ordeal, attributing their survival to Shackleton's exceptional leadership qualities. In recent years, this factor has led to the re-interpretation of the book in terms of a leadership and man-management manual, and several influential attempts have been made to distil from the narrative the underlying principles of Shackleton's command in order that they might be applied more widely. As Apsley Cherry-Garrard remarked in Worst Journey in the World; "For a joint scientific and geographical piece of organization, give me Scott; for a Winter Journey, Wilson; for a dash to the Pole and nothing else, Amundsen; and if I am in the devil of a hole and want to get out of it, give me Shackleton every time.

      Stabilimento tipo-litografico militare, Bologna. 1919 - Ottimi esemplari con dedica (fatata e firmata) dell’autore ad entrambe i volumi. Quello del rifacimento degli argini era un compito vasto e complesso perché implicava altre attività inevitabilmente connesse: sgombero e risanamento dei campi di battaglia, sistemazione dei ponti e delle strade, ripristino dei fabbricati di carattere pubblico (municipi, chiese), costruzione e messa in opera di baracche per servizi pubblici, riattivazione di opifici ed officine, di fornaci e segherie, di magazzini idraulici per il rifornimento di acqua potabile. Tutte le opere sono largamente rappresentate nel ricco apparato iconografico e compaiono sul teatro dei lavori i superiori, che sia il generale Traniello capo del 3° Ufficio Lavori, o il Presidente del Magistrato alle Acque una cui visita sul Piave, nel marzo ‘19, viene testimoniata da un paio di immagini. Il secondo volume tratta del Triveneto e spesso sono ritratti paesi e valli raramente rappresentate (p.es. Val Cortella e Val Cismon, ecc.). Ottima qualità tipografica con ricchezza carte ripiegate ed eccellente conservazione. Rara da trovarsi completa dei due volumi. Formato: 2 v. (157 p., [10] c. di tav. ripieg., [74] c. di tav.; 395 p., [14] c. di tav. ripieg.), 32 cm, tela. Ottimo.
