Tableau statistique dépliant. Première édition. Ce classique est l'un des textes les plus importants de la littérature psychiatrique : Philippe Pinel (1745-1826), père fondateur de la psychiatrie en France, nosographe, grand clinicien, inventeur du traitement moral, réformateur des conditions d'hospitalisation des aliénés, y expose en détail ses méthodes d'humanisation du traitement des aliénés. Rédigé en 1792, les troubles révolutionnaires en retardèrent la publication. Pour Hegel "il appartient surtout à Pinel d'avoir découvert ce reste de raison dans les aliénés, de l'y avoir découvert comme contenant le principe de leur guérison et d'avoir dirigé leur traitement d'après ce principe".

Zu Pinel s. GARRISON/MORTON 4922 ("Pinel was among the first to treat the insane humanely; he dispensed with chains and placed his patients under the care of specially selected physicians. Garrison considered the book one of the foremost medical classics, giving as it did a great impetus to the humanitarian treatment of the insane. It was submitted as a prize essay in 1792, the Revolution preventing its publication at that time."), NORMAN CATALOGUE, 1701: "In October 1793, while serving as médecin des infirmeries at Bicêtre Hospital, Pinel had the chains struck off from forty-nine male psychiatric patients in order to substitute for his cruel oppression his ‘traitement morale‘, a humane form of psychiatric therapy that identified insanity with illness rather than moral perversity or demonic possession. This dramatic act, performed in the liberating spirit of the American and French revolutions, found immediate and enduring favor in the popular imagination as a symbol of a new attitude toward the insane, and ignited a general desire for more humane treatment of the mentally ill that culminated in … [Click Below for Full Description]

First and only edition of a rare and extensive work on Algeria, with hundreds of stunning and very skilfully executed illustrations, the text by the conservator of the library in the Museum of Algiers, Louis Adrien Berbrugger (1801-1869). Parts 1 to 4 cover the four Algerian provinces: Alger, Oran, Bone and Constantine, while part 5 is subdivided into ethnic groups (Jews, Turks, Moors, Berbers and some of the nomadic peoples), coins and flora, with the plants arranged according to Jussiau's system. The 133 beautifully executed lithographed plates also show city views, landscapes, portraits, costumes, scenes from daily life with people from a wide variety of professions and various layers of society, etc. They give a lively and realistic portrait of a country in which many different peoples and cultures coexist. They also show Algeria part way through its gradual conquest by France in the years 1830 to 1848, capturing and preserving images of both the survivals from hundreds of years as an Ottoman state and the early interactions with European society.With 2 oval owner's stamps on the general title-page erased, leaving 2 small blank areas in the chromolithographed background pattern, the first botanical plate severely browned, several plates slightly foxed and a couple more seriously.

Hernandez, P.]
Madrid, 1801. "Introduction of the Vaccine Against Smallpox in Spain". 8vo; fine contemporary calf, 4 plates. Esteemed first Spanish language edition, considerably augmented from the French original, of this interesting work on the origin and discovery of the vaccine against cow smallpox, a contagious disease transmitted only by this animal which caused many thousands of deaths. The vaccine was discovered by a British doctor, E. Jenner. Translated to Spanish and augmented with notes by the Spanish medical doctor Pedro Hernández, this work is one of the first to be published on the topic. Jenner's vaccine was introduced in Spain in a short period of time, thanks to the participation of a number of pioneers, in particular Francesc Piguillemin who began work on the vaccine in Catalonia in December 1800. The work is divided in two parts. The first part deals with the discovery of the vaccine, its properties, as well as the history of smallpox. The second part discusses the correct method for producing and administering the vaccine, its qualities, and the time it takes to take effect, as well as its development in the course of the disease. *Palau 204091; Waller 438.

A Chartres, chez Durand et Labalte, an IX (1801); 2 publications en 1 vol. In-folio, demi-bas de l'époque 203 pp., 1 f., 43 ff. non chiffrés. TRES RARE. Le bourg d'Orgères qui se trouve à une trentaine de kilomètres de Châteaudun semble avoir eu historiquement vocation de petite capitale du banditisme. Déjà sous Louis-Philippe les bois d'Orgères servaient de retraite à de nombreux brigands qui se lançaient dans les campagnes des environs pour tuer et piller. La bande d'Orgères dont il est question dans ces publications, à a perpétué la tradition à la fin du XIX e siècle. 114 noms figurent sur la liste des accusés, hommes et femmes de toutes conditions, colporteurs, jardiniers, terrassiers, blanchisseuses, journaliers, cabaretiers, équarrisseurs, tonneliers, bouchers, militaires réformés et de nombreux sans profession, âgés de 18 à 69 ans, ayant commis des vols avec violence sur grand chemin, des vols avec escalade et effractions, des assassinats, viols, tortures...Arrêtés et jugés à Chartres, 23 des bandits furent condamnés à mort le 26 floréal an VIII et exécutés quelques mois après. Ce volume donne le détail de tous les crimes commis par la bande ainsi que le jugement complet. L'affaire d'Orgères est restée la plus importante cause criminelle des tribunaux français.

(dont 1 dépliant) portant les illustrations de 407 problèmes dessinés sur damiers pour les coups de dames à la polonaise.ÉDITION ORIGINALE. Ce livre extrêmement rare, surtout complet des grandes planches et du tableau dépliant, est sans doute le manuel le plus instructif jamais composé pour expliquer le jeu de dames. L'auteur était membre de la Société des Sciences et des Arts de Metz. Dans la préface il insiste sur la valeur pédagogique du jeu des dames et sa supériorité sur d'autres jeux (cartes et dés) dans lesquels les enfants ne "peuvent que puiser le germe de l'avidité et des autres petites passions dangereuses à développer en eux". Sous l'Ancien Régime, les dames étaient tombées en défaveur car "le bon ton aurait-il permis que des gens de qualité s'amusassent comme tout le monde ? Maintenant que nous voilà revenus vers des idées raisonnables, restituons à l'ancien jeu de dames une prééminence qu'il n'aurait jamais dû perdre..." Lallement est l'auteur de trois jeux nouveaux qu'il présente ici, "une nouveauté piquante et propre à varier les plaisirs" des joueurs.

(PERRY: BLACK SHIP SCROLL)
A unique early account of Commodore Matthew C. Perry's second visit to Japan, during which he negotiated the Treaty of Kanagawa; our scroll is composed of 20 scenes on 30 joined sheets of paper, and conveys the initial Japanese impressions of the Americans, their ships, technology, and weapons. Our "Blackship Scroll" was especially compiled by Otsuki Bankei for his fiefdom lord and contains many images and texts which are not found in other scrolls of this genre. As soon as word spread of Perry's second arrival, the scroll's creator, Otsuki Bankei (1801-78), was immediately sent by his fiefdom lord to record the proceedings of this fateful encounter. While the Americans' first stay in 1853 was brief, this second visit was much longer, with Perry intent on ratifying a comprehensive treaty. The Americans remained for more than a month and, for the first time, they were allowed to spend considerable time on shore. The two sides were able to interact and socialize more than ever before. This extended stay gave the Japanese unprecedented exposure to the foreigners and their first observations are vividly recorded on this scroll. It is important to note that our scroll is considerably different from other scrolls illustrating Perry's second visit to Japan; it also contains text by Bankei not present in other examples. Our scroll is a unique record of what Bankei witnessed and heard. He was assisted by two artists, Sekishi Kuwagata (1800-55) and Ranryo Seki (1805-63). The original box, in which the scroll is preserved, has a very old label pasted on the lid: "Kaei … [Click Below for Full Description]

Mackenzie, Alexander
London: R. Noble for T. Cadell, jun. & W. Davies, Cobbett & Morgan, and W. Creech of Edinburgh, 1801. [4],viii,cxxxii,412pp. plus stipple-engraved portrait frontispiece of Mackenzie by P. Condé after Thomas Lawrence, three folding engraved maps, and Errata leaf. Half title. Quarto. 20th-century three- quarter calf and marbled boards, spine gilt, leather labels. Minor edge wear. Light occasional foxing, short tears to maps at mounts. An attractive copy in very good condition. Alexander Mackenzie was "the first white man to cross the continent and his journal...is of surpassing interest" (Wagner-Camp). The present work is the first published account of the two exploring expeditions that Mackenzie made on behalf of the North West Company as part of their attempt to break the Hudson's Bay Company's stranglehold on the fur trade. The author was born in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland in 1764, came to North America in 1774, was employed as a clerk in the fur trade in 1779, and by 1787 he was a wintering partner in the North West Company, posted at Fort Chipewyan on Lake Athabasca. Mackenzie set out on his first expedition on June 3, 1789, armed with information and maps provided by fur trader Peter Pond. He had decided to follow a large river flowing west from Great Slave Lake in search of a northwest passage to the Pacific. The expedition was partially successful: on July 13, Mackenzie and his party reached salt water, but it proved to be the Beaufort Sea rather than the Pacific Ocean. After a further two years in the fur trade in Canada, Mackenzie returned to England in the … [Click Below for Full Description]

KANT EMMANUEL
A. Reutlingen, 1801. In 8° (mm 180x110); pagg. XVIII, 236. Elegante mezza pelle coeva con angoli, titolo impresso in oro su doppio tassello al dorso, che presenta cinque nervi e scomparti con filetti in oro; piatti in cartone, tagli rossi. Testo in carattere gotico. Seconda edizione.Kant non ha mai prodotto un "libro" sulla logica, ma ha insegnato e tenuto conferenze su tale argomento durante i suoi anni di docenza all'università in un corso introduttivo di filosofia. La pubblicazione di Logik nel 1800 nasce dalla collezione delle lezioni sulla logica di tale corso, compilata dai suoi manoscritti e appunti e curata dai suoi allievi, principalmente da Gottlob Jaesche. Kant in questi scritti affronta direttamente la distinzione tra logica generale e trascendentale, e spiega le differenze tra analisi e la sintesi, in relazione ai concetti, giudizi, e metodi. Logik apre al lettore una finestra sul mondo kantiano della scienza della logica, come un' architetura che serve a comprendere il suo lavoro, una spiegazione diretta dei concetti più importanti delle sue "critiche". Secondo Kant la logica può essere presa in esame da due punti di vista diversi: la logica dell'uso generale dell'intelletto ("generale") e quella dell'uso "particolare": la prima comprende le leggi necessarie del pensiero, senza le quali non ci sarebbe funzionamento corretto dell'intelletto; è una logica che prescinde da ogni contenuto della conoscenza, si occupa di meri principi a priori; la seconda, "trascendentale", riguarda le leggi dell'intelletto e della ragione, le regole del pensare correttamente una "d … [Click Below for Full Description]

London: J. and T. Carpenter. 8vo., xix + (I) + 427 + (1)pp., engraved plates and two text figures, the plates rather stained, wanting the half-title, a few emphasis marks in pencil and early annotations in ink, old, probably original boards, rebacked in cloth with a printed paper label, uncut. A good large copy. First edition. Kress B.4464. Goldsmiths 18194. Rothamsted (1st ed.) p.127 (noting 6 plates). Perkins 1724. Fussell, III, pp.31-2. A curious book by an eccentric Anglo-American. William Tatham (1752-1819) was sent to America in 1769 to seek his fortune. He obtained a commission at the outbreak of the War of Independence and took part in campaigns against the Cherokees and Creeks and the siege of Yorktown. In 1784 he was admitted to the bar of Virginia, in 1787 elected a member of the state legislature of North Carolina and in 1795 he was dispatched to Spain as American envoy to settle some boundary disputes in Florida. After his return to England in 1796 he became superintendent of the London Docks at Wapping in 1801. In 1805 he returned to America in poor circumstances, had problems with alcohol and bizarrely committed suicide in Feb. 1819 by stepping in front of a cannon at the moment of discharge. Perhaps the most interesting parts of Tatham's book on irrigation are the additional essays, including his Hints towards employing the vagrant and disorderly classes of the community in works of national irrigation, inland navigation and drainage; as a remuneration to society for the depredations they may have committed> [pp.359-382], and his ingenious Plan for raising t … [Click Below for Full Description]

ITARD (Jean)
Paris, Goujon fils, 1801, in-8, de (4), 1 portrait et 100 pages, , Rare première édition d'un texte fondateur de la pédopsychiatrie. En 1797 un jeune enfant sauvage, vivant depuis sa petite enfance entièrement coupé de tout contact humain, fut aperçu dans la région de Laucane. Après plusieurs apparitions et fuites, il se rendit spontanément, en 1800, au village de Saint-Sernin. L'enfant fut amené à Paris et présenté à la Société des observateurs de l'homme, fondée en 1799 par Sicard, Jauffret et de Maimieux. Il fut confié à Jean Itard, pionnier de l'oto-rhino-laryngologie, créateur de la première école française d'otologie et fondateur de l'otologie. Ce dernier tentera de pallier les déficiences linguistiques du jeune sauvage de l'Aveyron au travers d'une démarche éducative qui visera notamment à ouvrir socialement le jeune garçon, baptisé Victor. Le texte publié en 1801 forme le rapport enthousiasme d'Itard sur la méthode employée pour parvenir à éveiller Victor au monde humain, une méthode caractérisée de sensualiste et héritée des Lumières et notamment de Condillac, dont Itard se servait pour l'apprentissage des sourds et muets. Bien que cette tentative empiriste soit vouée à l'échec, l'entreprise d'Itard reste fondatrice et son ouvrage fondamentalement novateur. Imaginant un système pédagogique nouveau basé sur une interaction originale entre élève et éducateur et couplé d'une méthode d'observation basée sur des présupposés médicaux et philosophiques, cet ouvrage participa à faire d'Itard un personnage emblématique de la psychiatrie infantile.

BEETHOVEN, Ludwig van 1770-1827
Vienna: Artaria e Comp. [PN] 872, [1801]. Oblong folio. Early blue wrappers. 1f. (title), ii (blank), 2-56 pp. Engraved. Printed price: "3 fr. 30," corrected in ink in "4 fr/20." Early owner's signature to upper wrapper in ink: "Wilhelmine Maurer." Two leaves trimmed at lower margin with very slight loss to printed area. A very good copy overall. First Edition. The full score was not published until 1864. Kinsky p. 102-04. Hoboken 2, 215 and plate 8. First performed in Vienna at the Burgtheater on March 28, 1801 to a libretto by the noted Italian choreographer and dancer Salvatore Viganò (1769-1821). "The second half of 1800 was outwardly uneventful; it doubtless saw the final revision of the op.18 string quartets, and the writing of the B♭ Piano Sonata (op. 22) and of the A minor and F major violin sonatas (opp. 23, 24). There was less inducement to prepare new works for a possible concert in the following spring, since he had received an important commission for the court stage: he was to write the music for a ballet designed by the celebrated ballet-master Salvatore Viganò, Die Geschöpfe des Prometheus (op.43). This was given its first performance at the Burgtheater on 28 March 1801 and was successful enough to be repeated more than 20 times. Only a sketch of the scenario survives. In the finale Beethoven used a melody that evidently came to assume a certain emotional importance for him, perhaps even embodying something of his spirit of determination and heroism in battling against difficulties, for he used it again as the theme for two important and challenging sets of … [Click Below for Full Description]
