INDEPENDENT 1924-1925
Independent 1924-1925
1924. (INDEPENDENT 1924-1925). THE INDEPENDENT 1924-1925. We offer a lot consisting of about 180 typewritten sheets with many additions in holograph, part of the type-setter's copy for various issues of THE INDEPENDENT from Sept. 1924 through Jan. 1925. In several cases the manuscripts differ slightly from the printed versions. The lot comprises: about 80 pages of book reviews (titles reviewed range from Huxley's LITTLE MEXICAN to Babbitt's DEMOCRACY AND LEADERSHIP); 50 pages of feature articles (analyses of the 1924 Presidential Campaign, "Distinguished Realities--What Modern Novelists are Seeking," etc..); 40 pages of editorials, notes on contributors, letters to the editor; and about ten pages of tables of contents, advertising for the subsequent issues, etc.. A large part of the material is for the issue of Sept. 27, 1924, a "Special Fall Book Number." THE INDEPENDENT was a journal published in Boston weekly or fortnightly from 1848 to 1928. Dealing particularly with politics and economics, it was also concerned with cultural and environmental issues. Its advertising stresses the paper's "middle ground", unprejudiced standpoint. The lot is in good condition, with only the wear to be expected from the nature of the material. .

He was most industrious and it is said that not even on his wedding day did he fail to give his usual daily lecture at St. Bartholomew's Hospital. D'Arcy Power found his book Surgical Observations on the Constitutional Origin and Treatment of Local Diseases; and on Aneurisms to be epoch-making; it contains a record of the first successful ligation of of the external iliac artery for aneurysm, an operation carried out by Abernathy in 1796. .

 ACCUM, FREDERICK, Practical Essay on the Analysis of Minerals
ACCUM, FREDERICK
Practical Essay on the Analysis of Minerals
1809. BY AND EARLY PROPONENT OF FOOD SAFETY AND CONSUMER AWARENESS ACCUM, Frederick. A PRACTICAL ESSAY ON THE ANALYSIS OF MINERALS, exemplifying the best methods of analysing ores, earths, stones, inflammable fossils, and mineral substances in general. Philadelphia: Published by Kimber & Conrad.. and Benjamin & Thomas Kite.. 1809. Brown & Merritt, printers. First American, from the first London edition of 1804. A frontispiece and one other copperplate, both engraved by Tanner, of apparatus. Pp. xxiv, [25]-236. 12mo. contemporary paper boards with a paper spine, and a paper spine label. Ex library, but with minimal markings: a perforated stamp to the title leaf and the first leaf of text and a couple of ink stamps in margins. The binding shows general wear all over, with the lower board foxed. The boards are firmly attached despite superficial cracks along joints. Text is nicely printed and clean for the most part, with foxing to endpapers and fly leaves. Accum (1769-1838), a German-born and educated chemist, emigrated to London in 1793 to serve an apprenticeship and to continue his scientific studies, where he stayed and worked for most of his professional career. Although he never made any significant contributions to pure chemistry, his contributions to technical and industrial chemistry were important: he did much to promote the introduction of gas lighting, and to alert the public to the dangers of food adulteration and the dubious methods and fraudulent claims of some merchants. Like Humphry Davy and other contemporaries, Accum became a popular lecturer and author of books to accompany his courses in practical chemistry, pharmacy, and mineralogy, such as this PRACTICAL ESSAY ON THE ANALYSIS OF MINERALS. (Shaw & Shoemaker 16788; Oxford DNB). .
