        Venise au XVIIIe Siecle

      Paris - Perrin et Cie., 1923. Paris - Perrin et Cie., 1923 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A historical account of Venetian life in the eighteenth century. In French. In 1606, a conflict between Venice and the Holy See began with the arrest of two clerics accused of petty crimes, and with a law restricting the Church's right to enjoy and acquire landed property. Pope Paul V held that these provisions were contrary to canon law, and demanded that they be repealed. When this was refused, he placed Venice under an interdict. The Republic paid no attention to the interdict or the act of excommunication, and ordered its priests to carry out their ministry. The latter half of the 17th century saw also prolonged wars with the Ottoman Empire: in the Cretan War (16451669), after an heroic siege that lasted 24 years, Venice lost its major overseas possession, the island of Crete. In 1684 however, taking advantage of the Ottoman involvement against Austria in the Great Turkish War, the Republic initiated the Morean War, which lasted until 1699 and in which it was able to conquer the Morea peninsula in southern Greece. With bookplate of Dwff Cooper to front pastedown. Condition: In a half-calf binding. Externally smart, with just some light rubbing. Internally, generally firmly bound although loosening in places (page 1-2 is detached, but present). Pages are age-toned throughout. Overall: VERY GOOD INDEED with a GOOD INTERIOR..

Very Good. Hardcover. A fine collection of Conrad's pre-eminent works. Joseph Conrad (1857-1954) was a Polishemigr to England who has become one of the most easily-recognisable names in 20th-century literature. Born in the Ukraine to an upper-middle-classPolish family at the height of the Russian Empire; Conrad moved frequently as a child, first with his activist father, andthen in theguardianship of his uncle when his father's activities against the Russians increased in intensity. Displaced repeatedly, the young Joseph found solace in fanstastic tales of the sea written by English and American sailors, and was remembered from an early age for his gift at spinning nautical yarns. As he came of age, Conrad was under strongly-worded advice from his family to buck the Russian yoke by taking foreign citizenship. Forsaking France (and with it the spectre of compulsory military service), Conrad settled in England in 1874 and joined the Merchant Navy, spending 19 years in service and attaining the rank of Captain. Blending a continental sense of tragic realitywith romantic, sea-bound English ideals,utilisinga degree ofskill never before (or arguably since) seen, Conrad's works pit the indomitable power of the human will against the cruel vagaries and indifference of fate. Here we have a very sound collection of his most famous novels and short stories as well as several essays in combined volumes; to includeA Set of Six Almayer's Folly An Outcast of the IslandsLord JimNostromoNotes on Life and LettersRomanceThe Arrow of GoldThe InheritorsThe Mirror of the Sea (and A Personal Record)The Nigger of the Narcissus (and Typhoon)The RescueThe Secret Agent The Shadow Line 'Twixt Land and SeaUnder Western EyesVictoryYouth (and Two Other Stories).

Lovely gilt stamps and lettering. Minimal wear to corners of boards, heads and tails of spine (some bumping). Fading to spines. Internally, generally firmly bound. All volumes some foxing to first and last few pages but otherwise clean and bright with only some marginal spotting and handling marks.

        Traumatic shock. Presentation copy

      New York: Appleton, 1923 New York: Appleton, 1923. Cannon, Walter B. (1871-1945). Traumatic shock. xvii, 201pp. Text illustrations. New York & London: D. Appleton, 1923. 263 x 173 mm. Original gilt-stamped cloth, one corner bumped. Light toning but very good. Presentation Copy, inscribed by Cannon to Sir Cuthbert Wallace (1867-1944) on slip tipped to front pastedown: ?To Sir Cuthbert Wallace with gratitude for your kindness and encouragement during our work in old B?une. Walter B. Cannon.? First Edition. Cannon, professor and chair of the Department of Physiology at Harvard Medical School, was one of the pre-eminent physiologists of the 20th century, making fundamental contributions to our knowledge of digestion, the autonomic nervous system, homeostasis, and stress response. ?In the fall of 1916, before the United States entered World War I, the National Research Council named Cannon a member of a committee on traumatic shock. Later he joined the Harvard University Hospital Unit. On his way to France in May 1917, he stopped in London and arranged with Fletcher, first secretary of the Medical Research Committee, to join the group of physicians and surgeons of the British Expeditionary Forces who were dealing with shock cases at the Casualty Clearing Station at B?une. . . . Initially Cannon and his associates in the field concentrated their therapeutic efforts on treating the acidosis that accompanies shock. Later they recognized that the acidosis was merely a secondary phenomenon, the result of the inadequacy of tissue perfusion. In 1923 Cannon summarized his wartime experience in Traumatic Shock? (Dictionary of Scientific Biography). Cannon presented this copy of Traumatic Shock to his commanding officer at B?une, Colonel Cuthbert Sidney Wallace, consulting surgeon to the First Army, British Expeditionary Force. Cannon noted in his preface that ?We were serving under Colonel Cuthbert Wallace, later Major-General Sir Cuthbert Wallace, who was as eager as any of us to secure further knowledge of shock and who helped and encouraged us in our efforts? (p. ix).
