About this Item: Egypt and Switzerland., [1880s-1890s]., 1890. 4to (295 x 235 mm). 50 photographs of Egypt (albumen prints and cyanotypes), and approximately 40 albumen prints of Switzerland. Impressively presented series of original photographs taken at various important sites and cities in Egypt, including Giza, Thebes, Karnak, Luxor, Abydos, Esna etc. The photographs show archaeological sites like the temple of Seti I at Abydos, the precinct of Ahmen-Rah near Luxor, the avenue of Sphinxes at Karnak, the Ramesseum and the Colossi at Thebes, the temple of Khnum at Esna, the Sphinx and pyramids of Giza and many more. Other photographs show the local population, doing a wide variety of activities, such as catching crocodiles on the nile, a Luxor barber shaving the head of a sailor, or a Bedouin camp in the Libyan Desert. - The Istanbul-based Sebah studio catered to the Western European interest in the exotic "Orient" and the growing numbers of tourists visiting the Muslim world who wished to take home images of the city, ancient ruins in the surrounding area, portraits, and local people in traditional costumes. "Sebah rose to prominence because of his well-organized compositions, careful lighting, effective posing, attractive models, great attention to detail, and for the excellent print quality" (Gary Saretzky, Photo history). Jean Sebah (1876-1947) took over the studio from his father Pascal after his death and signed his productions "J. P. Sebah" on the negative, putting his initial in front of his father's. - Some spotting and fading. Seller Inventory # 45517

Inscribed by the author to the geologist and Alpinist Thomas Bonney , "from his obedient servant--the Author."

Prolific Swiss-French Art Nouveau artist best known for his poster for Montmartre's cabaret Le Chat Noir. Signed drawing. ("Steinlen"). 1p. Folio. N.p., N.d.

Calculorum qui in corpore ac membris hominum: KENTMANN, Johannes.

About this Item: Adams, G-522/[2]; Durling 2656; Osler 646/[2]; Sinkankas 2366/2; Sparrow, Milestones of Science 82/[8]; Ward 906/[2] & 1251; Wellcome 2804/[2]. First and only edition of a treatise on stones found in the human body, including the first known detailed account of gallstones, well-illustrated with 11 woodcuts showing more than 30 objects. In addition to stones, it includes growths and indigestible objects swallowed, divided into twelve chapters according to the part of the body in which they were found. Johannes Kentmann (1518-1574), as both mineralogist and city physician of Dresden and Torgau, was ideally suited to discuss this subject. Conrad Gessner included Kentmann's treatise in his compilation, De Omni Rerum Fossilium Genere, but it is separately signed and foliated for separate publication as well.A very good copy with generous margins. The text of slightly more than one page struck through in ink. Fascinating doctor/mineralogist's view of "stones" found in human bodies. Seller Inventory # S1725

Four volumes from the personal library of: Dent, Clinton T.

About this Item: Hardcover. Condition: Good. 1st Edition. Pamphlets: Two volumes numbered VI and VIII to the spines, containing 12 offprints, 13 booklets and 6 extracts (thirty-one items in all), several with plates or maps, occasional browning, generally in good order, bound for the most part with the original wrappers in contemporary buckram with contrasting lettering pieces, bookplate of Dent at front of each volume. Album: 140pp., comprising numerous newspaper cuttings, 2 posters for lectures by Dent on mountaineering, and 6 programmes for theatrical or musical evenings, bound in contemporary half morocco, rubbed, Dent’s bookplate at front. Conway, William Martin. The Alps from End to End. Westminster: Archibald Constable, 1895. First edition. 8vo. pp. xii, 403; frontis. and numerous plates after originals by A. D. M’Cormick; minor age-toning, else good in the original buckram-backed cloth, gilt, t.e.g, minor wear to head of spine and to rear board, Dent’s bookplate at front. Clinton Thomas Dent (1850-1912) made important ascents in the Alps and the Caucasus during the period known as the silver age of Alpinism. He made the first ascent of the Aiguille du Dru in 1878, and eight years later climbed Gestola in the Caucasus with W. F. Donkin. He was president of the Alpine Club from 1886 to 1889, and often lectured on mountaineering and related themes. He also followed a career in medicine, and became the Senior Surgeon at St. George’s Hospital, and Chief Surgeon to the Metropolitan Police. The present four volumes from Dent’s library contain materials relating to his many interests. The bound volumes of pamphlets include offprints and booklets presented to Dent by prominent mountaineers of the day: Vittorio Sella, Douglas Freshfield, Arthur Harper (inscribed by Harper). Also present are two catalogues of mountain paintings for exhibitions at London galleries, one with a preface by Dent and Freshfield, and a history of the Caucasus Museum printed in German in Tiflis with a covering letter from the author to Dent. Other content relates to Dent’s career as surgeon, including addresses given at St. George’s Hospital , or papers such as Robert Bowles’s Sunburn on the Alps (1890). The extracts mostly offer reviews or articles by Dent himself, including his essay ‘Can Mount Everest be Ascended?’, and a book review of Conway’s The Alps from End to End. The accompanying album, presumably compiled by Dent himself, contains numerous newspaper cuttings on miscellaneous subjects, including mountaineering, the Boat race, a letter from Charles L. Dodgson (Lewis Carroll), the British Association, politics, medicine, the British North Borneo Company (with a copy of their bookplate pasted in; a relative, Alfred Dent, was a director), obituaries of e.g. Darwin, and much else; several of the items were written by Dent. The programmes contain details of theatrical and musical performances that include members of the Dent family, and the two posters advertise Dent’s lectures, one from 1872. Signed by Author(s).
