UNKNOWN TO HISTORY A Story of the Captivity of Mary Queen of Scotland. In Two Volumes. Charlotte M Yonge. Bernhard Tauchnitz, Leipzig 1882 Vol One304pp, Vol Two 304pp Fine Binding Christian Bernhard, Freiherr von Tauchnitz (1816-1895), the founder of the firm of Bernhard Tauchnitz, was the nephew of Karl Christoph Traugott Tauchnitz (1761 - 1836). His printing and publishing firm was started at Leipzig in 1837. Bernhard started the Collection of British and American Authors, a reprint series familiar to anglophone travellers on the continent of Europe. These inexpensive, paperbound editions, a direct precursor to mass-market paperbacks, was begun in 1841, and eventually ran to over 5000 volumes. Tauchnitz editions were more often than not published at the same time as the true first, many with the injunction that they should not be introduced into the British Empire or the USA for copywright reasons. This copy has a bespoke binding by Gaetan Ronner, St Honore, Paris, of quarter red morocco to marbled boards five raised bands with six compartments and gilt titling. Marbled endpapers, silk top and tails and green silk marker. These books come from the library of Charles-Édouard Brown-Séquard FRS (8 April 1817 - 2 April 1894), also known as Charles Edward, he was a Mauritian physiologist and neurologist who, in 1850, became the first to describe what is now called ‘Brown-Séquard syndrome’. In 1858 Dr. Brown-Séquard arrived in London. During his stay there, he was appointed physician at the National Hospital for the Paralysed and Epileptic (now the National Hospital), and was elected Fellow of the Royal College of Physician's of London, as well as Fellow of the Royal society. During this time he also published his 'Course of Lectures on the Physiology and Pathology of the Central Nervous System' an early exposition of what is now know as 'his' syndrome. During his time in London, Dr. Brown-Séquard made many well-known acquaintances, amongst others Charles Darwin, T.H. Huxley, and Louis Pasteur. This copy is in FINE tight and bright condition and is one of a number of similar editions I am selling on this site. Ref P2 Size: Vol One 304pp, Vol Two 304pp. N° de ref. de la librería 004657
