        Vom Beruf unsrer Zeit für Gesetzgebung und Rechtswissenschaft.

      bey Mohr und Zimmer, Heidelberg 1814 - Heidelberg, bey Mohr und Zimmer, 1814. 8vo. 2 Bll., 162 S. Neuerer, grüner Halbledereinband mit Lederecken und Rückengoldprägung. (alter, schwacher Namenszug von 1884 auf Titelblatt). Erste Ausgabe der berühmten Streitschrift zur Kodifikationsfrage, zugleich die programmatische Grundschrift der historischen Rechtsschule! - Im Frühjahr des Jahres 1814 forderte der große Pandektist und Heidelberger Professor Thibaut (1772-1840) in einer kleinen Schrift eine Kodifikation des deutschen Rechts. Nach dem Code civil von 1804 und dem Österreichischen Allgemeinen Gesetzbuch (ABGB) von 1811 lag die Frage und der Streit einer nationalen Kodifikation in Deutschland geradezu in der Luft. Eine rasche Antwort von Savigny (1779-1861) war von großer Wichtigkeit, zumal in Berlin Gerüchte kursierten, man wolle auf dem Wiener Kongress das ABGB von Österreich auch in Deutschland einführen. Der Code Napoleon war teilweise geltendes Recht in einigen Gebieten Deutschlands. Gewaltig war das Aufsehen, als Savigny bereits im Herbst 1814 eine Gegenschrift zu Thibauts Forderungen vorlegte, gerade war der Wiener Kongress nach dem Abdanken Napoleons zusammengetreten. Es wurde die berühmteste und auch folgenreichste juristische Streitschrift, die Deutschland erleben sollte. "Vom Beruf unserer Zeit" war eine auch von seinen Kritikern anerkannte glänzende Schrift, mit der Savigny zugleich die Vorschläge von Thibaut aus der öffentlichen Diskussion verbannte, damit die geforderte Kodifikation verhinderte und zugleich die programmatische Niederschrift der historischen Rechtsschule vorlegte. Grundlage seiner Anschauung war, daß nicht die gesetzte Willkür des Staates Recht erzeuge, sondern "innere, stillwirkende Kräfte", also eine Art von Volksgeist, der die Gesellschaft eine juristische Seele einhaucht, die zu erblicken und niederzuschreiben des Juristen Handwerk und Kunst, eben ihr "Beruf" sei. (alter, schwacher Namenszug von 1884 auf Titelblatt). [Attributes: First Edition]

        Catalogue d'une Belle Collection de Tableaux, Délaissés par feu M. Vanderborcht, dont la vente se faira au comptant, le 27aout 1814 ( le jour après la vente de M. Pauwels), a neuf heures du matin, en la maison de la brasserie de la barbe, chaussée,d'Anderlecht, section III, No. 655, a Bruxelles, sous la direction du notaire Geens.

      Veuve de Braeckenier, Imprimeur-libraire, marche au fromage, No. 322., Brussels 1814 - 8vo; 10 pp, plus a blank leaf. On paper faintly tinted blue. 78 lots of paintings; only the first 32 priced (in a contemporary hand). Recent sympathetic wrappers. Two Belgian tax stamps to tail margin of fourth page. Small but significant art sale catalogue, of which no copy can be found in the United States. As we learn from the Getty Provenance Index: "The paintings found in the present sale are claimed on the title page of the catalogue to have been the property of a certain "M. Vanderborcht" who was already deceased. He has not been identified, although he might be the print dealer of this name who is listed in the 1810 commercial almanach of Brussels [.] It is noteworthy that "Vander Borght" is recorded as having purchased six paintings at the present sale, one of which, a landscape by Berchem, the first lot in the sale, was apparently bought in. This implies that "Vander Borght" may have been a corruption of "Vander Borcht" (or vice versa) and that the buyer at the present sale was a member of the same family. However, the remaining five pictures bought by him do not seem to have been bought in, so the matter must remain open. All 78 lots in the sale consisted of paintings, although there is a note at the end stating that in addition to some more pictures to be sold "hors du catalogue," a pair of scales for weighing gold would also be offered. The paintings are clearly organized with the most valuable items at the front of the catalogue, and the prices for the first half of the sale were reasonably high. The last lots brought very small amounts, and the annotators of the various extant copies of the catalogue [including ours] did not bother to record their buyers. The highest price, 1300 francs, was realized by the first lot by Berchem, but as noted above, it was apparently only bought in. [.] Two other lots reached or surpassed 500 francs: A Still life with dead poultry and two figures by Frans Snyders and Rubens was sold for 560 francs, and a landscape by Jan Both went for 500 francs. Both were sold to the dealer L.J. Nieuwenhuys, who bought altogether eleven lots at the sale. Annotations in the MB copy of the catalogue indicate that four of the most expensive of these, including the picture by Snyders and Rubens, were purchased on behalf of "Lerouge," presumably the Parisian dealer Nicolas Lerouge. None of the paintings in the sale have been identified. Provenance: contemporary signature of "Mr. Spruijt" to head margin of title; this individual is C.-J.-F. Spruyt, the art dealer, painter, and curator for Prince Auguste d'Arenburg. The Getty Provenance Index lists 1,402 purchases by Spruyt from 1784-1810. OCLC finds only the KMSKA copy. Lugt 8579. Ours is the only copy currently on the market. Very good antiquarian condition [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        North West Side of the Gulf of Carpentaria by M. Flinders Commr. of H.M. Investigator 1803.

      London: G and W. Nicol, 1814. Engraved map measuring 668 x 469 mm., neatly backed upon linen. Original engraved chart of the Gulf of Carpentaria published for the atlas volume of Flinders' masterpiece A Voyage to Terra Australis. Charting this region was particularly difficult for Flinders and his officers; beset by scurvy in the tropical heat they soon discovered the timbers of the Investigator to be rotten and the vessel barely seaworthy.This map is one of sixteen published for the atlas, and is clearly identified as its first state by the publisher's details 'G. & W. Nicol, Jany. 1st 1814' engraved to the lower margin. Noted for their accuracy and utility, Flinders' charts were republished and updated by the Admiralty and remained in use for well over a century. Accordingly, examples of the first issue are increasingly uncommon, and it is probable that this unfolded copy backed on linen was used at sea. A few spots and a little flecking at the periphery, otherwise very good condition.

        John Boydell, Esq.

      London: Cadell & Davies, 21 June, 1814. Soft ground etching, plate size 380 x 325 mm. on a larger sheet; ex-library stamp to verso, together with the relevant letterpress. A fine portrait of the great publisher John Boydell (1720-1804), the most important print publisher of his day, and together with his daughter Mary and her husband George Nicol, the initial impetus behind the publication of John Webber's magnificent Views in the South Seas. Webber's colour-plate book of the Pacific, the only colour-plate book relating to Cook's voyages and the last of the great Cook publications, contained sixteen coloured aquatints, after Webber's drawings, and engraved by the artist himself.The portrait was done by Henry Meyer (1782-1847) after an original portrait by Gilbert Stuart (1755-1828). In the Georgian era Meyer was perhaps most famous for a Shakespeare project that included the establishment of a Shakespeare Gallery and the publication of an illustrated edition of Shakespeare's plays. He also became Lord Mayor of London. A very good impression.

        A Voyage to Terra Australis; undertaken for the purpose of completing the discovery of that vast country, and prosecuted in the years 1801, 1802, and 1803, in His Majesty's Ship the Investigator, and subsequently in the armed vessel Porpoise and Cumberland schooner. With an account of the shipwreck of the Porpoise, arrival of the Cumberland at Mauritius, and imprisonment of the commander during six years and a half in that island...

      London: G. and W. Nicol, 1814. Two volumes quarto, and the atlas, elephant folio; the charts in the atlas all in their first issue and in the largest format; nine plates in the text; the atlas containing 16 folding or double-page charts, two plates (on four double-page sheets) of coastal views, and 10 double-page botanical plates; a very good set, the text in well-preserved contemporary calf, spines panelled in gilt in compartments between raised bands, red leather lettering-pieces and green leather numbering-pieces; the atlas in contemporary half calf and marbled boards, spine lettered boldly along its length; joints of text and atlas volumes neatly repaired. A wonderful set of the great classic of Australian coastal exploration, in fine condition and with the atlas in its preferred largest format and, startlingly, the first of the text volumes inscribed "From the Author". The old myth that Flinders died as his long-awaited book was put into his hands has long since been debunked but an example of his great book with a deliberate presentation inscription, probably put there at his request by his publisher Nicol, is of exceptional interest and rarity.We have handled this remarkable copy twice before, first in the 1980s.The two extensive text volumes and the accompanying very large volume of charts of the coastline represent the magnificent achievement that was Flinders's voyage in the Investigator, the full-scale expedition to discover and explore the entire coastline of Australia (the name that Flinders himself preferred and championed). Flinders was the first to circumnavigate the continent, finally establishing that Australia was one large island and not, as previously had been speculated, divided by a navigable central strait.The three volumes form the complete record of the expedition with an authoritative introductory history of maritime exploration in Australian waters from the earliest times. The text contains a day by day account of the Investigator voyage and Flinders' later voyages on the Porpoise and the Cumberland. Robert Brown's 'General Remarks, geographical and systematical, on the Botany of Terra Australis', which is illustrated by Ferdinand Bauer's botanical plates in the atlas, is printed in an appendix in the second volume. The text is illustrated by William Westall's nine engraved plates in the text and two double-page plates of coastal views in the atlas. These are in many cases the very earliest views of the places visited and discovered on the voyage. Flinders's charts in the atlas were of such accuracy that they continued to be issued by the Admiralty for decades and form the basis of all modern charts of Australia. The charts in this copy are all of the first issue."Flinders's Voyage to Terra Australis is the most outstanding book on the coastal exploration of Australia. It is the centrepiece in any collection of books dealing with Australian coastal discovery. Such is the historical importance of this monumental work that no general collection of Australian books could be considered complete without it" (Wantrup). This is a remarkable copy, in the best possible format and inscribed as a presentation copy from the great navigator. Provenance: With authorial presentation inscription but recipient not identified; two private collections (Australia). A little light offsetting from the plates in the text volumes, but less than usual.

        A Treatise on the wealth, power, and resources of the British Empire, in every quarter of the world, including the East Indies... Illustrated by copious statistical tables.

      London: Joseph Mawman, 1814. Quarto, contemporary tree calf with gilt tooled flat spine and green calf label. First edition: a detailed description of the state of the British Empire at the final stage of the war with Napoleon, with a chapter on the penal colony at New South Wales.Patrick Colquhoun (1745-1820) was an energetic magistrate who played an important role in the reform of the London police from 1792 onwards, while promoting philanthropic schemes for the relief of the poor through charitable funds and soup kitchens. Colquhoun predicted a disastrous rise in unemployment and poverty following the demobilisation of the British armed forces after the defeat of Napoleon, who was exiled at Elba at the time of publication. The author sought to calculate the wealth of the empire, including possible sources of future revenue, with a view to initiating large scale employment and emigration to the colonies.Colquhoun devotes an important chapter to the state of affairs in New South Wales, providing detailed descriptions of the agriculture and exports of the colony alongside the significant expenditures incurred. Through careful calculations the author proposes the convict settlement at New South Wales has cost £2,465,182: an enormous sum compared to the relatively small number of convicts transported. The cost exceeds the benefit, maintains Colquhoun, and the convicts should be sent to the relatively prosperous colonies of South Africa and North America (being present day Canada).The description of New South Wales details the trading privileges enjoyed by army officers, especially the trade in cheap liquor that bred intoxication and poor discipline, while low numbers of female migrants generated prostitution and immorality. Interestingly, the author notes the lack of minted currency and the use of grain and cattle in as a medium of exchange. Clearly a wide variety of sources were used in this ambitious project including the Report of the Select Committee for Transportation of 1812 and the early settlement accounts of Governor Arthur Phillip and Judge Advocate David Collins. Boards scuffed, old repairs to front board and tail of spine, title-page A little foxed yet very good.

        Foreign Field Sports, Fisheries, Sporting Anecdotes, &c. &c. from drawings by Messrs. Howitt, Atkinson, Clark, Manskirch, &c... with a supplement of New South Wales.

      London: Edward Orme, 1814. Quarto, 160 pages letterpress without pagination, 100 handcoloured aquatints with the 1813 New South Wales supplement bound at rear (this comprising separate title-page, dedication leaf, 10 handcoloured aquatints and 14 letterpress pages); a fine copy of the early issue with watermarks dated 1811 in a handsome contemporary binding of half green russia spine in compartments with gilt lettering and ornament. Beautifully preserved copy of one of the outstanding aquatint books of the early nineteenth century containing a remarkable suite of ten plates depicting Aboriginal life and customs with detailed letterpress descriptions.This is the first edition of Foreign Field Sports, a collection of 100 hunting scenes from cultures across the globe, including Africa, Europe, the Middle East and the Americas. This complete edition includes the 'Field Sports, &c. &c. Of the Native Inhabitants of New South Wales' separately published by Edward Orme the previous year. It comprises ten plates of Aboriginal hunting and ceremonial scenes with descriptive letterpress, separate title-page and a dedication leaf to Governor Bligh.The ten scenes are remarkable in the history of early colonial Australian art, offering good-natured and unprejudiced depictions of Aboriginal life in an era when pejorative representation was the norm. The scenes include smoking out possums, a kangaroo hunt, spearing birds on the wing, fishing from canoes, a native dance, painted warriors, men in single combat and an idyllic night scene. Delicately hand-coloured and expertly printed, the ten plates 'are without question the most attractive and sympathetic of the early European depictions of the native inhabitants' (Australian Rare Books p.280).Although the dedication leaf and plates are signed by John Heaviside Clarke, there is little doubt he is not the artist responsible for the Aboriginal plates and their accompanying text. Clarke was a commercial artist working in London, turning original sketches into finished drawings ready for the engraving process.For decades controversy has surrounded the true identity of the artist of the Aboriginal studies. In Australian Rare Books, Wantrup argues convincingly for the natural history illustrator John Lewin, and explains the stylistic differences between Lewin's known work and the plates in this volume to the conventions and discretionary modifications made by Clark and his engraver. Wantrup maintains the artist must have experienced prolonged contact with the Aboriginal peoples of the Sydney region to produce studies of such detail, and through a process of elimination leaves Lewin as the only reasonable candidate. Nonetheless, Richard Neville, in his recently published monograph on Lewin, disagrees with this attribution on the basis of stylistic and aesthetic considerations. While the identity of the artist remains contentious, these depictions of Aboriginal life stand apart from contemporary work and remarkable for their sensitivity: 'other artists working in the colony at the time portrayed the Aborigines with grotesque sarcasm... But the drawings in Field Sports demonstrate respect for their dignity and exuberantly innocent humanity' (Australian Rare Books, p.281).Aside from its relevance to Australian colonial history, Foreign Field Sports is a testament to the quality of English colour plate book publishing during the early decades of the nineteenth-century, an era that saw other magnificent books such as Ackermann's Microcosm of London. Competition between publishers produced unprecedented technical and artistic excellence, especially in the perfection of professional handcolouring techniques (of which Foreign Field Sports is a paradigm example). These volumes were expensive in their own time, often priced at several guineas a volume, and took pride of place in private book collections. Joints and extremities a bit worn.

"[Napoleão] made his first concert appearance in Lisbon at the age of seven and then toured Europe, playing for kings and Napoleon III. In London he studied with Hallé, and in Paris with Herz. In Berlin Meyerbeer presented him at court in 1854 and in Weimar he was praised by Liszt." He first toured Brazil in August of 1857, made another concert tour which included the U.S., the settled in Rio de Janeiro in 1866. He founded the publishing house Narciso and Artur Napoleão in 1878, and "provided a significant stimulation to Brazilian musical production for about a century... The critic Alfredo Camarate said that Napoleão resembled Chopin in the sweetness of his playing and Liszt in his bravura. He composed an opera, O remorso vivo (1866), orchestral works, songs, and piano pieces. He also wrote études of pianistic techniques based on those of Cramer."

Provenance: Robert & Marian S. Honeyman (bookplate loosly inserted). A fine,wide-margined copy with interesting provenance. ----Honeyman 3037 (this copy); Riccardi II/5, 51; Poggendorff II, 1193. Giovanni Battista Venturi (15 March 1746 - 24 April 1822) was an Italian physicist, savant, man of letters, diplomat and historian of science. He was the first to call attention to the importance of Leonardo da Vinci as a scientist, rather than simply as an artist. He compiled, edited and published many of Galileo's manuscripts and letters. In this book on the history and theories of optics, he recounts the observations of Bonaventura Corti, who discovered protoplasm in cells in 1774, but whose observations were overlooked until protoplasm was discovered by Treviranus in 1811. Venturi restates the original observations made by Corti, who later, in 1839 was finally credited with the first description of protoplasm. He also gives a history of the dioptra by recounting the Hero of Alexandria's treatise on the subject. Very Good.

Aufgeteilt in 108 Schriften mit Erzählungen, reportagehaften Augenzeugenberichten, Anekdoten und tagebuchartigen Aufzeichnungen, die zwischen Ende 1813 und Januar 1816 als Wochenschrift erschienen. Die Berichterstattung beginnt mit dem Einmarsch französischer Truppen in Breslau im Mai 1812 und endet mit der Schlacht bei Paris am 30. März 1814.

        A Sammelband of Six Works.

      Various places and publishers see below -1863 1814 - Six volumes bound in one, folio (30.6 x 23 cm), [10], 242 pp.; title on original wrapper, title, 38 pp.; [1] separation leaf, 20 pp.; 20 pp., with 9 illustrations in text and 2 full page; 18 pp.; [1] separation leaf, 64 pp. With some additional documents. Green quarter morocco over marbled boards, spine in compartments lettered in gilt and small ex-libris gilt; just a bit rubbed. A fine volume, elegantly bound, inscribed by two of the authors, with an extensive letter from Langlois. With provenance: three of the works, and probably the letter, are addressed to Charles Defrémy (1822-83), a distinguished orientalist (see Cooper, Men of the time, 1884, p. 330) and, according to Langlois, a bibliophile. He was member of several academies and published many studies on Persian and Arabic cultures. One of his greatest achievements was the transaltion and publication of the Voyages d'Ibn Batoutah. Langlois (b. Dieppe, 1829-1869) was a French orientalist, who dedicated most of his work and writings to the history of the Armenian civilisation and translations of Armenian chroniclers. Among his numerous travels, he explored Cilicia and Little Armenia in 1852 and 1853, and the terra cotta figures which he discovered in his excavations of the necropolis of Tarsus were exhibited in the Louvre. 1) LANGLOIS, Victor, Le trésor des chartes d'Arménie, ou Cartulaire de la chancellerie royale des Roupéniens, Venise, Typographie Arménienne de Saint-Lazare, 1863. First edition - very rare example on "papier fort", one of 15 only according to Langlois' letter bound-in. A fine example of the quality of printing at San Lazarro degli Armeni, the celebrated Venetian island home to an Armenian Catholic monastery, headquarters of the Mechitarist Order and a major centre of Armenian printing from the late 18th century to the early 20th century. Next to a great bibliophile remark, Langlois' autograph letter discusses the identification of an historic figure in one of Defrémery's researches (Bustan). 2) LANGLOIS, Victor, "Extrait de la Chronique de Sempad", Mémoires de L'Académie Impériale des Sciences de St.-Pétersbourg, VIIe série, Tome IV, n. 6, St.-Petersbourg, 1862. Inscribed by Langlois to Defremery on the original printed upper wrapper. Sempad the Constable (1208–1276) was a noble in Cilician Armenia, an older brother of King Hetoum I. He was an important figure in Cilicia, acting as a diplomat, judge, and military officer, holding the title of Constable or Sparapet, supreme commander of the Armenian armed forces. He was also a writer and translator, especially known for providing translations of various legal codes, and the creation of an important account of Cilician history, the Chronique du Royaume de Petite Armenie (Chronicle of the Kingdom of Little Armenia). 3) LANGLOIS, Victor, Mémoire sur les Relations de la République de Gênes avec le Royaume Chrétien de la Petite-Arménie pendant les XIII et XIV siècles, Turin, Imprimerie Royale, 1861. Tome XIX of the Serie II of Memorie della Reale Accademia della Scienze di Torino. Inscribed by Langlois to Defremery on the original plain upper wrapper. 4) KHANIKOF, M. N. De, "Méched, la ville Sainte, et son territoire. Extrait d'un voyage dans le Khorassan", Le Tour du Monde, 1858.

        Pont de l'École militaire, construit sur la Seine, à Paris, en face du Champ-de-Mars, d'après les projets et sous la direction de M. Lamandé…

      One fine folding engraved plate (a little foxed). 21 pp. Large 4to, orig. blue paste-paper wrappers, uncut. Rouen: P. Periaux, 1814. First edition of Lamandé's own account of the history and construction of this famous bridge. "The École Militaire or Jéna Bridge over the Seine in Paris, was one of the few masonry bridges that Napoleon commissioned and the only one to be built during his time. Completed in 1813, it was designed and built by Lamandé with five elliptical arches each of 28m span. It was intended to lead to Napoleon's projected palace. Although the bridge has had to be widened it still exists."-Elton, Cat. 5, no. 30. Lamandé (1777-1837), the son of the renowned bridge engineer, François Laurent Lamandé, was an outstanding student at the École des Ponts et Chaussées. In 1800, he became responsible for the maintenance of the quays and bridges along the Seine in Paris and designed and oversaw the construction of several bridges in the city including the Pont d'Austerlitz and the one described in the present book.

        A Voyage to Terra Australis; undertaken for the purpose of completing the Discovery of that vast Country, and prosecuted in the years 1801, 1802, and 1803 in his Majesty's Ship the Investigator..

      London: W. Bulmer and Co, 1814. Some of the offsetting familiar to this work, but a fine set, almost entirely uncut and in its most desirable form, with the charts unfolded and all in their original issue of 1814.. Complete set of the Flinders account, comprising: two volumes large quarto, with nine steel-engraved plates after William Westall, the half-titles present; and elephant folio atlas with 11 double-page and 5 full-page charts, 2 double-page plates of coastal views and 10 botanical plates after Ferdinand Bauer; in uniform later half calf. One of the greatest of all classics of Australian exploration and discovery and scarce on the market: a particularly handsome set, all volumes uncut with large margins and the atlas in the preferred and rare largest format allowing the Bauer plates to be bound in unfolded. Flinders' classic account of his voyage on board the Investigator records the full-scale expedition to discover and explore the entire coastline of Australia (which was the name that Flinders himself preferred and championed). The three volumes form a complete narrative of the expedition, including an authoritative introductory history of maritime exploration in Australian waters from the earliest times. The text contains a day-by-day account of the Investigator voyage and Flinders' later voyages on the Porpoise and the Cumberland. Robert Brown's "General Remarks, geographical and systematical, on the Botany of Terra Australis", which is illustrated by Ferdinand Bauer's botanical plates in the atlas, is printed as an appendix in the second volume.The text is illustrated by nine engraved plates and two double-page plates of coastal views in the atlas by the landscape painter William Westall, who travelled as official artist on the voyage. These are in many cases the very earliest views of the places visited and discovered on the voyage. Flinders' charts in the atlas were of such accuracy that they continued to be issued by the Admiralty for decades and form the basis of all modern charts of Australia. All the charts in the atlas here bear the imprint "W. & G. Nicol Pall Mall… 1814", an important point that identifies them all as being in the correct first issue form.

        La Vénusalgie, ou la maladie de Vénus

      270pp. Paris, chez l'Auteur at Patris, 1814, in-12, 270pp, demi-maroquin noir, dos à nerfs orné de filets dorés. (Rel. de l'ép.), Première édition de ce poème didactique sur la syphilis du docteur Jean-François Sacombe, publié "at Patris", à son retour d'exil. Cet accoucheur contesté s'engage ici dans une polémique vive ; "savoir si la gonorrhée et le chancre syphilitique font ou non partie d'une même entité nosologique et, plus largement, si sous le nom de syphilis on ne confond pas différentes pathologies" (Alexandre Wenger, "Poésie et médecine au XIXe siècle"). Le poème "Vénusalgiade" en trois chants est suivi d'amusantes notes explicatives ainsi que d'un "tableau pathologique", dans lequel il se vante d'avoir découvert un remède contre la syphilis ; une plante "anti-vénusalgique", qu'il nomme du nom de sa chienne de chasse la "Diane", qui l'aurait guéri lui-même du mal qu'il avait contracté au contact d'une femme syphilitique qu'il avait fait accoucher. Sûr de son fait, il se rengorge d'une reconnaissance publique future qui "gravera un jour sur [sa] tombe cette épitaphe glorieuse ; Passant, ci gît qui ne fut rien / Pas même un académicien ; / Mais bon anti-césarien, / Mais bon anti-vénérien." Jean-François Sacombe (1750-1822), que certains commentateurs situent à la charnière de la science et du charlatanisme, fut également un ardent adversaire de la césarienne ; il avait exposé ses vues dans un poème paru en 1792, "La Luciniade". Sa véhémence lui valut, de la part du célèbre obstétricien Baudelocque, un retentissant procès pour calomnie. Incapable de s'acquitter de l'amende dont il fut frappé, il dut fuir la France durant quelques années et n'en revint qu'en 1814, pour publier cette Vénusalgie non moins discutable... Waller n° 8383. Hirsch IV, p. 947.
