Montesquieu, avec entre autres John Locke, est l'un des penseurs de l'organisation politique et sociale sur lesquels les sociétés modernes s'appuient. Il a notamment travaillé sur la répartition des fonctions de l'État entre ses différentes composantes, appelée postérieurement « principe de séparation des pouvoirs ». Sa grande contribution est d'avoir su exposer à ses contemporains deux modèles de liberté politique : la « liberté modérée » du régime monarchique et la « liberté extrême » incarnée par la Constitution d'Angleterre. relié DeCollection

        View of the Entrance to the Palace, Luxor, Thebes. "Vue de l'Entrée du palais_ Thèbes. Louqsor

      Middle East: Paris Impremerie de C.L.F.Pancoucke 1820-1829. Large double page, copper engraved view entrance to the Templeof Luxor, Thebes from the third volume of the "Antiquities "of the "Description de l'Egypte," 2nd Edition; black & white; verso blank. Blind stamp of the publisher Panckoucke to margin. The view shows the entrance to the temple with the two obelisks [the one on the right now stands in the Place de la Concorde in Paris], with two defaced heads of statues buried in the sand, in front of the pylons of the temple with their decorated walls; just glimpsed through the entrance can be seen the hall of columns. Good dark impression; some light foxing. mainly to upper margin. "Description de l'Egypte, ou, Recueil des observations et des recherches qui ont été faites en Egypte pendant l'expédition de l'armée française." When Napoleon Bonaparte invaded Egypt in 1798, he brought with him an entourage of more than 160 scholars and scientists. Known as the French Commission on the Sciences and Arts of Egypt, these experts undertook an extensive survey of the country's archeology, topography, and natural history. . For four years more than 150 artists, engineers, linguists, and scientists traveled throughout the country, examining almost every aspect of ancient and contemporary Egypt. They recorded and measured in meticulous detail Egypt's topography, flora and fauna, and its ancient and contemporary architecture. A soldier who was part of the expedition found the famous Rosetta Stone, which the French linguist and scholar Jean-François Champollion (1790-1832) later used to unlock many of the mysteries that long had surrounded the language of ancient Egypt. The Egyptian expedition ended with a total military failure. The French left Egypt in 1801, with the honors of war, but defeated; yet military failure remains a significant event in the history of knowledge because it is the first time a military expedition was accompanied by a scientific expedition. In 1802 Napoleon authorized the publication of the commission's findings in a monumental, multi-volume work that included plates, maps, scholarly essays, and a detailed index. Publication of the original Imperial edition began in 1809 and continued to 1822, sold by subscription. It proved so popular that a second edition was published under the post-Napoleonic Bourbon Restoration. The "Royal edition" published in Paris by C.L.F. Panckoucke from 1820-1830. The Second edition consists of 11 or 12 volumes of plates in folio and 24 of text [bound as 26] 8vo. Brunet:II, 617; Blackmer/Navari: 476 [1st edition] Middle East Egypt Luxor Thebes

Granville untersuchte Gesundheitsstatistiken und Todesursachen bei der Arbeiterschaft und setzte sich hartnäckig für die notwendigen Reformen ein. Granville hat daneben 1821 die erste medizinische Autopsie an einer antiken ägyptischen Mumie - Irtyersenu (etwa 600-550 v. Chr.) - vorgenommen. Er glaubte damals Gebärmutterkrebs als Todesursache festgestellt zu haben. Diese Meinung wurde erst in den Jahren nach 2000 widerlegt. - "In 1819 he also publsihed his obervations on the internal use of the hydro-cyanic (prussic) acid in irritant diseases of the lungs such as consumption, the idea being derived from his having observed the use of the laurel water in Venice some years previously" (Alex Sakula: Augustus Bozzi Granville. In: Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine. Vol. 76 (1983). p. 879). - Vorgebunden: Karl Stahlberger, Sammung chemischer Reagentien für gerichtliche Ärzte, Pharmazeuten und Liebhaber der Chemie. Wien, Gerold, 1819. - Erste Ausgabe selten. - Leicht gebräunt. Titel des Beibandes gestempelt.

        John Holland original manuscript poem, "The Rainbow" signed (titled and dated May 12, 1820)

      NP: John Holland, 1820. 1st Edition. No binding. Very Good. 23.7cm x 17.7cm (8-1/2" x 7 inches), The Rainbow; 3pp. manuscript poem, titled, dated (1820) and signed. Agetoned and yellowed paper with page 3 having a 1/2 inch piece of paper missing on the bottom right, not affecting any manuscript, otherwise, very good condition. This early poem (1820) written by John Holland, caused great publication. Holland's poem "The Rainbow" (1820), published anonymously around the same time as one on the same subject by Thomas Campbell written in 1819 (To the Rainbow) and also published it in 1821 in The New Monthly Magazine. Holland's poem, "The Rainbow" with later publishing was frequently anthologised as Campbell's. In his book, The Life of John Holland, published in 1874, John Holland in a letter to Miss Anne Cowley (page 49) he explains in full detail the story of the confusion from his perspective of course. He also specifically mentions the date of May 12, 1820 which is the day he wrote this and the same date written on the one we are offering. John Holland (was an English poet and newspaper editor of the Sheffield Iris and co-editor of the Sheffield Mercury. In 1832 was elected curator of the Sheffield Literary and Philosophical Society, a position he held until his death. Throughout his journalistic life, he wrote numerous works on botany, geology, local history and topography, in addition to biographies and sermons.

        Large Botanical Specimens - Herbarium Pharmaceuticum

      Europe, circa 1820s - 1840s. Uncommon nineteenth century botanical collection of pharmacological interest comprising solely of plants, or specific parts of plants, with medicinal properties. A complete work comprising 60 large specimens mounted onto individual folded leafs with small paper strips, each identified by its scientific Latin name in typescript. Accompanied by the collector's original alphabetical index tipped in. Contained in tooled green cloth boards, originally string - tied, titled in gilt, with mauve marbled endpapers, and measuring approximately 24 x 35cm. Mounting leafs measure approximately 21 x 34 cm when folded. Specimens range in size, the majority are very large, spanning the folio leafs. Boards age worn and lacking ribbons, chips to extremities of mounting paper, otherwise very good condition. The early 19th century was a turning point in the knowledge and use of medicinal plants. Marking the beginning of scientific pharmacy alkaloids were discovered and isolated from poppy (1806), ipecacuanha (1817), strychnos (1817), quinine (1820), pomegranate (1878), and other plants, followed by the isolation of glycosides. With the upgrading of the chemical methods, other active substances from medicinal plants were also discovered such as tannins, saponosides, etheric oils, vitamins, hormones, and so forth. A typical 19th century cottage garden would often contain as many medicinal plants as edible plants. Knowledge of medicinal uses was especially important in rural areas without physicians. Basic medical care in the early to mid - 19th century was based on several assumptions, including the notion that removing symptoms would remove the disease, the body needed to be "cleansed" for certain treatments by inducing vomiting or bloodletting, so forth. A majority of diagnoses were addressed through the use of produced powders, tonics, teas, poultices, and washes primarily extracted from plants.Too many to list here, following are some examples found in this fascinating plant specimen archive, which represents these past medical theories. Seldom seen in herbariums, but indeed present here is the opium poppy, scientifically named Papaver somniferum, which was used for treating asthma, stomach illnesses, and bad eyesight. Also included is the Papaver rhoeas or common poppy a mild sedative now associated with the First World War. Lactuca virosa, also called Wild Lettuce, Opium Lettuce, Poisonous Lettuce, etc. and ingested often for its mild hypnotic or sedative effects which are often described as being similar to that of opium. It was used in the 19th century by physicians when opium could not be obtained and was studied extensively by the Council of the Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain in 1911. Today it can be found locally in the south east and east of England. In the rest of Great Britain it is very rare, and in Ireland it is absent. The deadly Solanum dulcamara, also known as bittersweet nightshade, its berry poisonous to humans and livestock alike. Although fatal human poisonings are rare, several cases have been documented. The stems however are approved by the German Commission E for external use as supportive therapy in chronic eczema. Also unusual for a medicinal herbarium, we find the Nicotiana tabacum, or cultivated tobacco, an annually - grown herbaceous plant processed into tobacco in many countries today and used in a wide array of medicinal applications. In 1560, Jean Nicot de Villemain brought tobacco seeds and leaves as a "wonder drug" to the French court, soon becoming a common snuff and tobacco plant. The leaf extract was a popular pest control method until the beginning of the 20th century. In 1851, Belgian chemist Jean Stas documented the use of tobacco extract as a murder poison after Count Hippolyte Visart de Bocarmé had poisoned his brother - in - law. Cannabis sativa, also known as marijuana, the popular annual herbaceous plant which has been cultivated throughout recorded history as a source of industrial fibre, seed oil, food, religious and spiritual moods, a recreational drug, and medicine. In traditional medicine, especially in India, it has been used as hallucinogenic, hypnotic, sedative, analgesic, and anti - inflammatory agent. Arnica montana, sometimes called mountain tobacco, which has long been used externally to treat bruising, soft tissue damage. It contains the toxin helenalin, which can be poisonous if large amounts of the plant are ingested, potentially producing severe gastroenteritis and internal bleeding of the digestive tract. Humulus lupulus, the common hop, also known as golden hop, which is the main ingredient of many beers and as such is widely cultivated for use by the brewing industry, its fragrant flower cones also having preservative qualities. Vitis vinifera, a grape vine native to the Mediterranean region, central Europe, and southwestern Asia, used not only in wine making but historically also for coughs, respiratory tract catarrh, enlarged liver and spleen, as well as in alcohol - based tonics (Aasavs). Using the sap of grapevines, European folk healers sought to cure skin and eye diseases. Leaves were applied to stop bleeding, pain and inflammation of hemorrhoids. Unripe grapes were used for treating sore throats, and raisins were given as treatments for consumption (tuberculosis), constipation and thirst while ripe grapes were used for the treatment of cancer, cholera, smallpox, nausea, skin and eye infections as well as kidney and liver diseases. Sambucus nigra, commonly known as an elderberry, traditionally used as a medicinal plant by many native peoples and herbalists alike. Stembark, leaves, flowers, fruits, and root extracts are used to treat bronchitis, cough, upper respiratory cold infections, and fever. Arctostaphylos uva - ursi, commonly known as kinnikinnick and pinemat manzanita, which contains the glycoside arbutin, which has antimicrobial properties and acts as a mild diuretic. In the 19th century, prior the introduction of sulfa drugs and modern antibiotics, it was among the few herbal drugs with antibacterial properties. Gentiana lutea, bitter root, or the great yellow gentian, native to alpine regions, with a long history of use as an herbal bitter in the treatment of digestive disorders and thought to have been one of the best fortifiers of the human system, used in the Middle Ages as an antidote to certain poisons, and named after Gentius, an Illyrian king who was thought to have found out that the herbs had tonic properties. Conceivably the work of Friedrich Gottlob Hayne (1763 - 1832), a German botanist, taxonomist, pharmacist and professor, in relation to his "Arzneigewächsen [Medicinal Plants]" circa 1809. From 1801 to 1808 Hayne collected flora and studied the chemical composition of plants, also employed in the "Royal Prussian Chemical Factory" in Schönebeck on the Elbe. From 1811 Hayne taught at the University of Berlin as a lecturer in botany, and in 1814 he was appointed extraordinary professor. He was appointed Professor of Pharmaceutical Botany in 1828.Papaver somniferum, the Opium poppy, is the species of plant from which opium and poppy seeds are derived. Opium is the source of many narcotics, including morphine (and its derivative heroin), thebaine, codeine, papaverine, and noscapine. The Latin botanical name means the "sleep - bringing poppy", referring to the sedative properties of some of these opiates. The First and Second Opium Wars among China, the British Empire and France took place in the late 1830s through the early 1860s, when the Chinese attempted to stop western traders smuggling opium into their country.
