John Harrison Curtis (1778-1860) was an otologist with questionable medical credentials who at one point wrote a letter to The Lancet arguing that a lack of earwax caused deafness. (Cf. Oxford Dictionary of National Biography). Pictured here is a hand-coloured engraved plate from Curtis' treatise on the ear, titled "The Organs of Sensation, with the Distribution of the Nerves." . Curtis, John Harrison (1778-1860). A treatise on the physiology and pathology of the ear: containing a comparative view of its structure, functions, and various diseases ; observations on the derangement of the ganglionic plexus of nerves as the cause of many obscure diseases of the ear ; together with remarks on the deaf and dumb. Sixth edition. London: Longman, Rees, Orme, Brown, Green and Longman, 1836. . #rarebooks #fisherlibrary #historyofmedicine #otology #engraving

Another year is in the books, and for many, it seemed to last far longer than a mere twelve months. Despite the rollicking ride of our current social, economic and political climate, the rare and collectible book trade seems to be booming in the face of the "death of books" that was expected by this point in time.  Come and see what trends we've noticed in the exchange of ephemera and books on #biblio this year, and browse a gallery of some of the most interesting books sold in 2018.  http://bit.ly/2Wdd6fy  #rarebooks #vintagebooks #bookstagram #booknerds #antiquarianbooks #modernfirsts #childrenslit #roalddahl #robertcrumb #franksinatra #ursulaleguin #oscarwilde #edgarallanpoe #zanegray #bestof2018 #indiebooksellers

Nick Thartcher, one of the founders of new falcon publications (now) original falcon publications clearing up my question of why regardie signed some books as Francis, and others as Israel. Apparently regardie signed as his real name (Francis regardie) to people who he personally knew and used his pen name (Israel regardie) for everyone else.  #occult #occultbooks #booksforsale #thegoldendawn #rarebook #firstedition #christopherhyatt #rarebooks  #israelregardie #aleistercrowley #newfalconpublications  #originalfalconpress  #ordotempliorientis

Our recent acquisition of a 1944 book previously owned by Adolf Hitler demonstrates our mandate to acquire items of historic relevance to Canada. “Statistics, Media, and Organizations of Jewry in the United States and Canada,” [translation] was compiled in 1944 by Heinz Kloss. The bookplate bears a stylized eagle, swastika, and the words, “Ex Libris Adolf Hitler,” indicating that the book came from the personal library of Hitler.  The Kloss report was printed on cheap, highly acidic paper, that left it brittle and vulnerable to deterioration. The book required specialized conservation treatment at our preservation centre.  This book serves as evidence of the Holocaust, which makes it an important tool to fight Holocaust denial. It provides insights worthy of reflection for Canada on #ww2 and the Holocaust. #weremember #neveragain . . . #rarebook #rarebooks #bookpreservation #bookconservation #documentaryheritage #archives #canadianhistory #exlibris
It’s chilly, rainy, and gray outside so I thought a work of Charles Dickens was only appropriate. 1885 The Posthumous Papers of The Pickwick Club by Charles Dickens. Inscription on inner page dated Christmas 1885 from Lennie to Eddie. These pages have aged just the way I like them to with a vignette of browning on the edges but no foxing or dog-eared corners. This book is a treasure with its Victorian cover.

For a combo #buildingblocks challenge and #libraryshelfieday, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to show off what we affectionately refer to as The Cage. The #robbins Library shares the 4th floor of Rush Rhees Library with part of the building's original stacks. But, because our collection is non-circulating, our stacks are separated from the general library's with this fence and a locked door. #seeyouontheotherside  @rclibraries #medieval #challengewednesday @iglibraries #rarebooks #specialcollections #librariesofinstagram #librarydesign #iglibraries

#newarrivals #linkinbio  ALL  NEW ARRIVALS await you in Catalog 65.  We acquired a few scarce Ludwig Bemelmans titles: Rosebud, Marina and  Noodle (written by Munro Leaf!). We were thrilled to find a few uncommon first edition picture books: Jeff Brown's Flat Stanley, Louise Fatio & Roger Duvoisin's Three Happy Lions; Hardie Gramatky's 2nd book, Hercules; Marjorie Flack illustrated Country Bunny and the Little Gold Shoes (in the first issue dust jacket with the incorrect title); Dahlov Ipcar's gorgeousCalico Jungle, etc... A nice group of Edward J. Detmold illustrated books made their way onto our shelves, as well as a lovely Kay Nielsen, an obscure Arthur Rackham title.  As always, we tracked down some Caldecott Medal and Honor books including the ever elusive Mice Twice by Joseph Low and an inscribed copy of The Emperor and the Kite by Jane Yolen, illustrated by Ed Young.  We were pleased to come across a first printing of a Newbery Medal winner we've never offered before: Maniac Magee by Jerry Spinelli.  We hope you find something that fills a void on your shelves.  Enjoy!

DEIANIRA  Folia Magazine is finally back from our winter break! We take this opportunity to wish all of you a happy new year, as we resume our regular posting by welcoming a new Mulier Clara to our Women's Wednesday column. This week's story once again involves Hercules and is related to our latest Mulier Clara, Iole: the protagonist this time is, in fact, Deianira, Hercules' wife at the time.  Deianira, daughter of the king of Calydon, was deemed so beautiful that Hercules had to fight the river god Achelous in order to take her in marriage. After their wedding, as they were traveling to Hercules' homeland, the couple was stopped by a river. A centaur named Nessus then offered to ferry Deianira across the river: once they reached the other bank, however, Nessus suddenly ran away, trying to kidnap the woman. Hercules, unable to outrun the centaur, took his bow and shot Nessus with a poisoned arrow; as he was dying, the centaur told Deianira to take his shirt with her, since the blood staining the cloth would one day have been useful to ensure that Hercules, by simply wearing it, would only be in love with her. Hercules then reunited with Deianira, and the couple went on with their lives.  Year after year Hercules proved to be more and more unfaithful to his wife, fathering several children all across Greece; it was when the hero fell in love with Iole, however, that Deianira remembered Nessus' words and decided to send the old, stained shirt to her husband. As Hercules wore it, the poisoned blood entered his pores: the hero instantly went crazy with pain, throwing himself into a fire.

The #exlibris of a nobleman of the 18th century with two #unicorns 🦄🦄🌈
Viri Illvstres, 1884.  One of the many publications in the Patrick Geddes Reading Room that have been discarded / withdrawn from Scottish Insititutions of Higher Education.  Ironically, one of Scotland's greatest thinkers is not pursued often enough to merit his work retaining a space on library shelves.  This work, printed on a richly textured paper, was prepared while Geddes was still a student.  The work is a brief biographical sketch of former intellectual giants who passed through the halls of the University of Edinburgh.  My favourite quote is from the introduction: “The Past is lighted up not merely by a thin line of flaring torches, but by the calmer radiance of a mist of stars; it reverberates not only with the mighty tread and pealing voices of the Heroes, but with the Chorus' mightier march and song.” #patrickgeddes  #patrickgeddesreadingroom  #hyderabadliteraryfestival2019 #rarebooks  #rarebookwalkthrough #urbsindis  #texturedpaper #universityofedinburgh

📚 Disponible à la librairie @alademilune  ALFRED DE VIGNY, « Servitude et grandeur militaires », Clermont-Ferrand, Les Éditions des moulins d’Auvergne, 1945, 259 p. In-8 en feuille, couverture illustrée en couleurs rempliée sous papier cristal, étui et emboîtage cartonné d’éditeur. 60 illustrations in et hors texte (39 in texte, 21 hors texte en pleine page), du dessinateur et illustrateur français André Galland (1886-1965). Exemplaire numéroté à la presse sur blanc imperator des papeteries de Guyenne (n°237/975) contenant une suite en couleurs des 21 lithographies hors texte sous chemise en fin de volume.  Emboîtage fragilisé et abîmé. Quelques rousseurs sur la tranche supérieure, sinon état irréprochable de l'ensemble des pages et de la suite bien complète des lithographies.  Dans cette oeuvre publiée initialement en 1835, Alfred de Vigny décrit avec une certaine sévérité la vie et les moeurs des armées. Ces mémoires, qui ne sont pas vraiment les siennes mais celles de ses compagnons de galère, envisagent la guerre comme un fléau et la condition du soldat comme celle de l’acceptation de la servitude. Dans les armées modernes, en effet, le troupier et même l'officier ne sont que des esclaves selon Vigny : ils doivent l'obéissance passive à une autorité factice qui les prend à ses gages. Mais ce renoncement à soi, souvent obtenu au prix des plus cruels sacrifices, permet à l'homme de sauvegarder sa dignité personnelle. Ainsi se définit une religion de l'honneur. Au sein d'un monde où semble régner la fatalité, cette mystique nouvelle rend à la vie un sens et atteste l'existence d'une liberté.  #alfreddevigny #vigny #andrégalland #auvergne #guyenne #guyennepapier #romantisme #guerre #armée #militaire #antiquarianbookshop #finebooks #antiquarianbooks #bibliophile #bibliophilie #gallargueslemontueux #librairieenligne #àlademilune #bookshop #rarebooks#livresrares #livresanciens
The Last Grain Race  by Eric Newby  Secker & Warburg London 1956 Scarce Hardcover 1st UK Edition,  Signed by the author on the title page.  Octavo, original blue cloth. 243 pages. First edition of the noted travel writer’s first book with the rear diagram of fold-out of sails and rigging. Signed by Eric Newby on the title page. "In 1938, an eighteen year-old boy signed on for the round trip from Europe to Australia in the last commercial sailing fleet to make that formidable journey. The four-masted barque Moshulu ended up as a dockside restaurant in Philadelphia; the young apprentice went on to become one of the greatest travel writers of this century. The Last Grain Race is Eric Newby's spellbinding account of this time spent on the Moshulu's last voyage in the Australian grain trade." #sydneylights #sydney #books #fiction #literature #reading #rarebooks #bookshop #bookstagram #instabooks #instabooks #instagood #igreads #readinglist #classicbooks #goodreads #bibliophile #ericnewby #ships #sailingships #graintrade

Excited to announce this collaboration with @snakesandaceys. 🐍 ♠️ ———— I’ve always wanted to put the amazing rare book illustrations I come across in my work on apparel/clothing and, thankfully, I was not the only one who thought that was a cool idea. ———— This inaugural release showcases some of my favorite imagery from the Nuremberg Chronicle on fleece zips and crew necks (with a front pocket!), LS tees, notebooks and tote bags. You can find them on my website (link in bio) or at the @snakesandaceys brick and mortar shop here in Cleveland (I encourage local interests to go there rather than me ship something across town). ———— Thanks again to the super talented @_t__d_ for the logo work. ✨ ———— It’s Valentine’s Day soon, someone you love would love this stuff ❤️ #rarebooks #specialcollections #fugitivepigments #illustration #apparel #handmadescreenprinting #screenprinting #clevelandbusiness #shoplocal #supportyourfriends #supportyourlocalartist #clothing #apparel #streetwear #hypebeast

Why do we go to a library? 🕺🕺🕺🕺🕺🕺🕺🕺🕺🕺🕺 Oh, how I enjoy going to a library and studying. To my new followers who recently followed me and sent me their compliments about my 5-year transformation post, I want to thank you all. I just realized its fun to share what you have been through your life. Again, I am Magzhan, but nice and cool people call me MJ bc I preferred to call me like that. So, take it as it is, or formally, I will be Magzhan. Let's jump back to our topic. 📖📖📖📖📖📖📖📖📖📖📖 Today I want to share with you all about my library experience. Hmm, if YOU are not a library person oops, sorry. I feel this post is going to be a LONG TOUR and you will need to skip it or read it to the end. I promise, I will give an interesting post at another time. 📍📍📍📍📍📍📍📍📍📍📍 Whenever I visit the libraries, I feel so great about the place. Ya, drastically great. I want to tell you about these feelings; maybe you will have the same feelings with me or not.  Close your eyes and feel it. 📚📚📚📚📚📚📚📚📚📚📚 When you walk-in in the library,  you smell the books,  you see how everything nicely organized,  you see how super quiet is,  you see how people are extremely concentrated on their work;  moreover, all these staffs around the library give you a different side of you. The atmosphere makes you so happy, and IMPORTANT PART is looked you so CLEVER. 📚📚📚📚📚📚📚📚📚📚📚 Meantime, you are just pulling your stuff nicely and slightly from your backpack, not to distract peoples focus and smoothly start working and joining their club. 📚📚📚📚📚📚📚📚📚📚📚 First thing is your cellphone is off and attentiveness guaranteed!  Interesting to read? Go to my Facebook page -> Magzhan Zhumayev You find rest of the post over there. 📚📚📚📚📚📚📚📚📚📚📚📚 What's your library experience? How's your library in
