        Archive, including materials on transit of Venus 1882

      1881 - Bassot, J. A. Léon (1841-1917). Archive consisting of 127 letters, telegrams, etc. to his wife and other family members, many in postmarked covers; also 38 photographs including large bound folding photograph of the participants in the "Dixième Conférence Générale de l'Association Géodésique Internationale" (Brussels 1892) and miscellaneous travel documents. 1860s - 1917; the letters cover the period 1881-1884. Some dust-soiling, one of the panels of the 1892 photograph detached, some of the photographs faded but on the whole very good. Archive of French geodesist and astronomer General J. A. Léon Bassot, who received the Académie des Science's prestigious Lalande Prize in 1883 for his observations of the transit of Venus that took place on December 6, 1882. Bassot, a geodesist with the French Army, was part of the Académie's expedition to St. Augustine, Florida, led by François Perrier, for the purpose of observing this important astronomical event. Transits of Venus are rare, taking place twice every 120 years or so; the 1882 transit was the last to occur prior to the transits of 2004 and 2012. Observations of the 1882 event, made by astronomers throughout the world, were used to determine the solar parallax and calculate the distance from the Earth to the Sun. Included in Bassot's archive are 27 letters and other pieces of correspondence written during the 1882 expedition, describing in detail the particulars of the journey to St. Augustine (via New York, Niagara Falls and Montreal) and the triumphant conclusion of the expedition's mission. On December 6, just after the transit occurred, Bassot wrote to his wife that "The transit took place today & we observed it completely. . . Everything has gone wonderfully well and the observations will, I think, be very good. . . the sky was covered just half an hour after the last contact; we saw everything, but we almost missed the last part of the passage . . . Perrier is ecstatic." In a longer letter dated December 9, Bassot went into further detail about the expedition's luck in having clear weather during its observations: "3/4 of an hour after the last contact the sun clouded over; the next day and the day after the sky was completely covered and we are seeing the sun for the first time today. We are all the more fortunate in that the North American stations have not all been favored: in Washington, it was partly clear but at Cedar Quay, at the same latitude as St. Augustine on the Gulf of Mexico, American observers missed a contact; the two German missions, which were installed in the north of Florida, saw nothing at all. . ." (translations ours). The remainder of the correspondence in Bassot's archive covers his geodesic activities in Paris and Nice in 1881 and 1882, during which he helped recalculate several longitudes, as well as his campaign for regional political office in 1884. The archive also boasts a good-sized collection of photographs, including a cabinet portrait of Perrier dated 1876; several portraits of Bassot and his family; group photographs of several scientific conferences; and some images of the Mounier Observatory, an adjunct to the Nice Observatory, where Bassot served as director from 1904 until his death.

        Die Endoskopie der Harnröhre und Blase.

      Dtsch. Chir., Lfg.51. - Stuttgart, F.Enke, 1881, 8, XVI, 240 pp., 22 Holzschnitte im Text und 108 fein kolorierte Abbildungen auf 3 ganzseitigen Tafeln, OBrosch. unaufgeschn. ERSTE AUSGABE. - Der Begründer der URETHROSKOPIE ist der Wiener Hautarzt Joseph Grünfeld (1840-1910). Es ist die bedeutendste Leistung in der Zeit vor Nitze. Grünfeld faßt alle technischen Errungenschaften seit Bozzinis Lichtleiter in seinen Urethroskopen zusammen. Grünfeld ist auch der Erfinder des Harnröhrenspiegels. Grünfeld verwendete als Reflektor den 1841 von Friedrich Hofmann, Kreisphysikus in Burgsteinfurt, beschriebenen konkaven Hohlspiegel mit zentralem Sehloch und befestigt ihn mit einer Binde an der Stirn er verschließt den offenen Harnröhrentubus am Schnabel mit einem schrägen Glasfenster und kann damit die untere und hintere Blasenwand sehen. Als erster entfernt er kleine Blasentumoren durch einen offenen Tubus unter Sicht. Er beschreibt den Unterschied von Harnsäure- und Phosphatsteinen etc. Auch sondiert er als erster das Ureterostium unter Kontaktendoskopie und in direkter Sicht (1876). Dabei drückt er das gerade Fenster bei der Frau gegen die Schleimhaut und macht sie so blutleer das Ureterostium findet er als erster regelmäßig auf, mit einem Blickfeld von 8 mm Durchmesser und einem scheinbaren Abstand von 8-18 cm. Das Andrücken des Fensters an die Blasenwand ist notwendig, weil sonst "die Trübung des Harns hinderlich war". Er erprobt alle möglichen Arten der Beleuchtung, vor allem Gaslicht. Wenn irgend möglich, benutzt er aber helles Sonnenlicht oder Tageslicht, so daß seine Patienten immer auf dem Sprung waren, wenn in Wien die Sonne durch die Wolken brach. First Edition. In 1876, Josef Grünfeld of Gyorke/Hungaria, a pioneer of cystoscopy, was the first to successfully catheterize the ureters under vision, using malleable catheters introduced into bladder alongside his glassended endoscope. He also was the first surgeon which observe a bladder tumor by cystoscope (1885). Murphy, 183 & 351 Kiefer Cat. 251 Nicht bei Benjamin Collection.

        A series of six vintage gelatin silver photographs of English Test cricketers, taken in Sydney in the mid-1920s. All photographs are signed by the subjects; all but one is credited to May Moore (with her signature on the photograph [SP], the mount [SM] or in the negative [SN], as indicated below). Image sizes are given; all are presented on their original studio mounts, now archivally matted, ready for framing. The subjects are John Douglas (195 × 145 mm, not signed by Moore); Arthur Gilligan (300 × 190 mm, SM); Patsy Hendren (195 × 135 mm, SN); Jack Hobbs (305 × 205 mm, SN); Henry Howell (200 × 145 mm, SN); and Maurice Tate (185 × 135 mm, SP)

      New Zealand-born May Moore (1881-1931) emigrated to Australia in 1910 and opened her first studio the following year in Sydney. Working initially together with her sister Mina (who ran her own studio in Melbourne from 1916), her excellent portrait photography attracted a large clientele, especially among artistic circles. May in particular photographed many Sydney celebrities, and it is not surprising to find that the cricketing heroes of the day made it to her studio. With 'a studio style using dramatic single source lighting, dark backgrounds, rich brown toned papers and sombre colour mounts, and favouring head and shoulder studies ... [the sisters] were extraordinary in their ability to portray a range of moods appropriate to their sitters' (Gael Newton). This series of images certainly exemplifies this impressive style. Illness forced May Moore to retire about 1928, and she died of cancer in 1931. [6 items].

        Signed autograph manuscript, being the original draft version with corrections, of a letter by Pasteur to the Hungarian ambassador in Paris on the methods of inoculation using his anthrax vaccine, but also documenting Pasteur’s determination to maintain the technical monopoly of his Institut over the production and mass distribution of the vaccine.

      4 October 1881, Paris - I hasten to reply to the letter in which you ask me to authorize M. Thuillier to proceed with the complete preparation of the vaccine before the commission formed to witness experiments with vaccinations. This preparation is fairly simple in theory. I published it in the report of the Académie des Sciences de Paris. Its application takes a lot of time and is very expensive if one is to attain absolute certainty. But to ensure its full value, a lot of time and even expense are required. One has daily to test, so to speak, the state of the virulent anthrax parasite as it progressively changes, and this testing can be achieved only by means of inoculations practised on animals, and finally on a large enough number of sheep. Mr. Thuillier will absolutely not have the time to carry out this study. Furthermore, allow me to point out the fact that out of caution and so as not to compromise the success of a method which is tricky, to say the least, I wish very much that, for at least a year, any vaccine used by sheep or livestock breeders be prepared by me or under my immediate supervision. Moreover, I am presently setting up a sort of factory. I already have no less than two hectolitres of liquid ready to be transformed into vaccine. Next spring I will be able to send tubes filled with vaccine liquid far away, at the very modest cost price, or more or less. Permit me to add that, after France, Hungary will be the preferred nation. If the practice of vaccination spreads more and more as I hope it will, I will be able to deliver all the vaccine requested only little by little. A factory could be created in Hungary and I would be the first to guarantee its success by giving the most precise instructions. For the moment, it is necessary to persuade farmers and large landowners of the advantages of the method. I hope that the experiment M. Thuillier has performed under your auspices will soon arrive at this result. I will not finish this letter, M. Minister, without thanking Your Excellency for the kindness with which you received M. Thuillier, and I ask you to please accept the homage of my profound respect. In the 1870s, anthrax was a major epidemic that plagued farmers throughout Europe. According to Pasteur, estimates of the annual loss to French agriculture from anthrax ranged from 20 to 30 million francs. In addition, the disease was also often fatal to humans. In 1876, Robert Koch had shown that anthrax was caused by a rod-shaped bacterium. By that time Pasteur was 54 years old and already internationally famous for his work on fermentation, silkworm diseases and spontaneous generation. After hearing about Koch’s work he began intensively experimenting with B. anthracis, with his goal nothing less than harnessing and controlling its killing power. Pasteur had created a successful vaccine against chicken cholera by exposing the cultures to the air for long periods – this was the world’s first artificially produced vaccine (Jenner’s smallpox vaccine had been based on naturally-occurring cowpox). Along with his assistants Emile Roux, Charles Chamberland and Louis Thuillier, he now set out to do the same thing for anthrax. In May 1881, Pasteur performed a famous public experiment at Pouilly-le-Fort to demonstrate the effectiveness of his anthrax vaccine. He prepared two groups of 25 sheep, one goat and several cows. The animals of one group were twice injected, with an interval of 15 days, with an anthrax vaccine prepared by Pasteur; a control group was left unvaccinated. Thirty days after the first injection, both groups were injected with a culture of live anthrax bacteria. All the animals in the non-vaccinated group died, while all of the animals in the vaccinated group survived. This sensational success led to huge demand for the vaccine and it was not long before inquiries came from abroad. Yet Pasteur was determined to keep sole control over his process and insisted that all vaccine cultures be prepared in his laboratory. "In 188

        Tisi' Rasa'il fi al-Hikma wal Tabi'iyat. Wa fi Akhiriha Qissat Salaman wa Yasal, Tarjamaha min al-Yunani Hunayn ibn Ishaq.

      Matbaat 'al-Jawa'ib, Qustantiniyyah 1881 - 131 pp, Arabic text, some foxing throughout especially affecting title page, ink comments on margin. Ibn Sina known in the West as Avicenna, was a philosopher, physician, and scientist. He was one of the major Islamic philosophers and his philosophical writings had a profound impact on Islamic philosophy and on medieval European scholasticism. Avicenna integrated the ideas and methodologies of Aristotle, Neoplatonism, and other Greek philosophy with the monotheistic tradition of Islam. He was one of the first to apply philosophical logic to Islamic theology, and his writings provoked a strong reaction from later Islamic theologians. Nevertheless as one of the foremost philosophers and one of the first to attempt a correlation between philosophy and religion, his works became standard textbooks in the schools of the Islamic world."

        Al-Jasus ‘ala al-Qamus

      Istanbul 1881 - 690 pp., Arabic text within borders, title printed in red, contemporary half-calf, worm holes throughout without affecting text, ink comments on margins, published by Qustantiniyah : Matbaat 'al-Jawaib, 1299 A. H./ RARE FIRST EDITION. "Faris al-Shiyaq, whose interest in Arabic, its lexicon, and its dictionaries goes back to his childhood, did not share Butrus al-Bustani’s views regarding "al-Qamus" of Fairuzabadi. In fact, Faris al-Shidyaq directed severe criticism against Fairuzabadi’s al-Qamus. His fierce attack on al-Qamus was intended to reveal that linguistic problems are not inherent in Arabic, but rather in al-Qamus- a representative of Arabic dictionaries that were incapable of serving the needs of the "modern" age. This attack on al-Qamus by al-Shidyaq was intended to spur interest in the compilation of a modern dictionary that would be easy to use by Arabic speakers, and that would also take a modern approach to language. As Faris al-Shidyaq states in his introduction to "ak-Jasus ‘ala al-Qamus" the motivation behind the compilation of his work lies in the 24 criticisms taken from his rather lengthy and somewhat disorganized introduction in which he spells out his views about classical Arabic dictionaries".

H. / 1881. Abdul Qadir al-Baghdadi who was born in Baghdad and died in Cairo, was a writer of commentaries – for example on the verses quoted on al-Astaralbadhi’s commentary on ibn al-Hajib’s Kafia, and Mughni of ibn Hisham al-Nahawi. He also wrote a superb commentary on ibn Hisham’s commentary on the famous poet Banat Suad, by Ka’ib ibn Zuhair, which includes much biographical information about grammarians. But he was mainly known for his Khizanat al-Adab, a commentary on the verse quoted by al-Astaralbadhi’s commentary on the Kafia of ibn al-Hajib. This work is perhaps less important for its philological content than the enormous numbers of sources it quotes: 945 principal titles have been counted in the Khizana, in addition to many subsidiary works.
