        Confessions of an English Opium-Eater

      London: Taylor and Hessey, 1822. - "Oh! Just, Subtle, And Mighty Opium!"[DE QUINCEY, Thomas]. Confessions of an English Opium Eater. London: Taylor and Hessey, 1822. First edition in book form. Large twelvemo (6 7/8 x 3 7/8 in; 176 x 98 mm). vi, 206 pp. including half-title.Bound c. 1920 by Riviere & Son in full teal crushed Levant morocco with triple fillets, gilt rolled edges, gilt decorated compartments, gilt ruled raised bands, and elaborately gilt dentelles. Top edge gilt, others rough trimmed. A very attractive copy. Housed in a cloth pull-off box with leather title label.Confessions of an English Opium-Eater (1821) is the classic autobiographical narrative written by Thomas De Quincey concerning his laudanum (tincture of opium) addiction and its effect on his life. The Confessions was "the first major work De Quincey published and the one which won him fame almost overnight."First published anonymously in September and October 1821 in the London Magazine, the Confessions was released in book form in 1822, and again in 1856, in an edition revised by De Quincey."De Quincey’s study of his own opium addiction and its psychological effects traces how childhood and youthful experiences are transformed, under the influence of opium, into symbolical and revealing dreams. The central experience for subsequent dream-formations was his childhood loss of his sister, duplicated by the disappearance of the 15-year-old prostitute Ann, who befriended him during his months of homeless near-starvation in London. The euphoric reveries of the early stages of his addiction and the appalling nightmares of the later stages are described in sonorous and haunting prose, and the work, first appearing in the London Magazine in 1821, conferred instant literary fame on De Quincey, whose first book it was. In 1856 he greatly extended the Confessions for a collected edition of his works, but thereby blunted its effect" (The Oxford Companion to English Literature)."This is the first edition of the first part of the book; the complete text first appeared in Boston in 1850 and in London in 1856" (Tinker).Ashley Library II, p. 37.

        A Selection of Views in Egypt, Palestine, Rhodes, Italy, Minorca, and Gibraltar, From the Original Drawings, executed During a Visit to those Places. With a Geographical and Historical Description to EAch View, In English and French

      John Hearne, London 1822 - Folio. 32 pp. with 31 hand-colored aquatint plates. Both Abbey Travel 198 and Tooley 511 give the plate number as 36 but the letterpress matches the 31 plate number in this copy and there are absolutely no signs of anything removed, and so surely this copy was issued as such. A few of the plates are exciting, such as the frontis with the procession depicted or scenes of old Cairo, and none are without merit. The binding is contemporary, and although quite scuffed, especially the boards, and there is wear along the joints, well worth preserving. Some scattered foxing and soiling, the title bearing the brunt of such as is here, and there is a minor tear/chip on the upper title page as well. Measures 16 by 12 inches, 40 by 30 cm.

        The Pirate Fight (The Action of 9 November 1822)

      Washington, D.C.: The National Intelligencer, 1822. Newspaper. Very Good. Newspaper. Folio - over 12" - 15" tall. A complete four-page newspaper of 5 December 1822 recounts the battle between the American Schooner USS Alligator, commanded by Lieutenant William Allen, of the West Indies Squadron and three pirate ships, probably commanded by Diabolito, off the coast of Cuba on 9 November 1822. It occupies over 18" of front page column space and has a large, capitalized headline. The paper reports details of the encounter. At the time of battle, the pirate force had in its possesion five US merchant vessels. The Alligator, although out-gunned and out-manned, had an experienced crew, which had recently captured another ship after a bloody battle, and commander; Allen had also commanded the USS Argus when it engaged the HMS Pelican during the War of 1812. Allen and his crew manned launches from the Alligator in an attempt to board the principal pirate vessel, the Revenge, which fired upon the Americans with grape and roundshout. Rather than attempt to fight off the boarding attempt, the pirates abandoned the Revenge and fled to their other two ships. As Allen turned his boats to continue the attack, they came under withering fire from the pirates. In an attempt to rally his men, Allen stood up and was cut down by musket fire. The two remaining pirate ships fled the battle during the resulting confusing, leaving the Revenge and the five merchant ships the Alligator. Allen became an immediate naval hero, and his name was used as a rallying cry a year later when the navy defeated another pirate force and killed Diabolito in the same area The paper is toned but supple; generally clean with some staining at the upper right. The spine appears to have been neatly mended.

        An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations

      London: by T. Davison, Whitefriars, for G. Walker, J. Akerman, E. Edwards,, 1822. A New Edition. 3 volumes, octavo (219 × 132 mm). Contemporary polished orange calf, brown morocco labels, spines lettered in gilt with gilt raised bands and gilt tooled compartments, boards ruled in gilt, board edges gilt, turn ins stamped in blind, marbled edges and endpapers. Bookplate to the front pastedown. Spines faded, tips bumped, boards lightly scuffed and soiled, occasional minor foxing. An excellent set, handsomely bound. An attractively bound set of "the first and greatest classic of modern economic thought" (PMM). In his Wealth of Nations, Smith "begins with the thought that labour is the source from which a nation derives what is necessary to it. The improvement of the division of labour is the measure of productivity and in it lies the human propensity to barter and exchange … The Wealth of Nations ends with a history of economic development, a definitive onslaught on the mercantile system, and some prophetic speculations on the limits of economic control" (PMM). "The Wealth of Nations had no rival in scope or depth when published and is still one of the few works in its field to have achieved classic status, meaning simply that it has sustained yet survived repeated reading, critical and adulatory, long after the circumstances which prompted it have become the object of historical enquiry" (ODNB).

        The American Practical Lunarian, and Seaman's Guide

      Philadelphia: Robert Desilver, August, 1822. Thick octavo, 15 plates (some folding), many tables and text illustrations, some scattered light foxing and browning as commonly found in American books of this date; a good copy in the original dark calf, spine label chipped, a few repairs to extremities. Freycinet's chart of the Uranie wreck at French Bay. First and only edition of this remarkable book, including the earliest published map based on the Freycinet voyage, an engraved sketch-map of French Bay marking where the Uranie ran aground. The map was based on a manuscript chart completed by Freycinet and copied for Captain Galvin of the Mercury, the ship leased by Freycinet for the return to France, and later purchased and renamed the Physicienne. The "Plan of Port Soledad or Berkley's Sound east end of Falkland Island" is rather well done, with a key noting the position of details including the 'Wreck of the French Corvette Urannei [sic]', the 'Sunken Rock which the Urannei struck on', and the 'Anchorage of the Mercury'. The presence of the Freycinet chart is due to Arnold's friendship with Captain John Galvin, who is listed here as one of the subscribers. Arnold notes: 'This chart was presented to the author in manuscript, by Captain John Galvin, of the ship Mercury, of Buenos Ayres, when he was in Philadelphia in 1821, a copy of which the author had engraved for this work. Captain Galvin procured it from the captain of the French corvette Uraneé [sic], which was at that time on a voyage of discovery, and was wrecked in this port, when Captain Galvin put in there in the Mercury in a leaky state, in 1820' (p. 263). Galvin had been running guns to rebels in Chile, but the Mercury had taken a beating in heavy seas, and pulled into the Falklands to refit. The French were already engaged in fruitless negotiations with a whaler called the General Knox, but Freycinet was relieved to be able to switch his attention to Galvin and the Mercury, negotiating their passage to Montevideo and, en route, arranging for the purchase of the vessel - a complicated bargain, but greatly preferred by Galvin's other passengers, a small group of fiery revolutionaries heading for the war in Chile. This work was published by the experienced mariner Thomas Arnold who had set up a Nautical Academy at 295 South Front Street on the river at Philadelphia (which he advertises here). A compendium of useful information similar in style to works such as Bowditch's Practical Navigator or Blunt's Shipmaster's Assistant, it is rich in practical notes on subjects as diverse as navigational instruction, natural history, astronomy, practical seamanship, gunnery, naval tactics and 'several sketches of trade not generally known' (including trade with the Ile de France, Bourbon and Batavia, to name just a few). The important section of sailing directions concentrates largely on Atlantic waters, as might be expected, and openly acknowledges its debt to Horsburgh's sailing directions of 1818 ('which is the latest and best extant'), with a few corrections from working sea-captains.

"Pon my life is true" What'll you lay it's a lie? London: G. Humphrey, May 1st, 1822. [With] An ALS From actor Charles Mathews to A. Constable Esq. First edition. Tall octavo in accordion format (9 5/8 x 6 1/2 in; 244 x 162 mm). Extra engraved hand-colored title-page and twelve hand-colored plates in a continuous strip, each signed "IRC." Later nineteenth century full calf, gilt ruled. Gilt lettered and ornamented spine, gilt decorated turn-ins. Light damp stains to calf not affecting internal contents.A volume of extreme scarcity, with only one copy recorded in institutional holdings worldwide, at Harvard's Houghton Library. According to the ABPC Index, only two copies have come to auction since 1954. Not found in any of the usual sources.

Extraordinaire manuscrit d'une jeune française anonyme, dame de compagnie de la Duchesse Charlotte Douglas-Hamilton et de sa fille aînée Lady Charlotte. Le récit est plein de vie et d'esprit et dresse un extraordinaire portrait de l'Angleterre de l'époque, et de certaines de ses figures célèbres (le duc Edward St Maur, et la duchesse de Somerset, Lord Robert Seymour, Lord Beckford, Sir Richard Hoare, etc.). The story is full of life and spirit and provides an extraordinary portrait of England at the time, and some of its famous figures (the Duke and Duchess of Somerset, Lord Robert Seymour, Lord Beckford, Sir Richard Hoare , etc. .). Voici une longue série d'extraits du journal : "Je quitte Londre le 5 d'août 1822. Je pars ravie, enchantée d'aller visiter la plus belle province de l'Angleterre en voyageant de la manière la plus agréable. . Il est 9 heures et demi nous montons dans une bonne berline attelée de 4 chevaux. Hyde Park et sa nouvelle statue (celle du Duc de Wellington). Londres enfin et ses faubourgs disparaissent à notre vue. Nous allons comme le vent, et bientôt nous entrons dans ces campagnes si bien ornées qui environnent la capitale des 3 royaumes. L'intérieur de la voiture est très paisible. Le rhume de la Duchesse nous prive de son amabilité ordinaire. Lady Charlotte a pris l'habitude d'être grave en voiture, elle es sérieuse comme elle le sera pendant tout le voyage. Le Duc seul a la bonté de répondre à toutes mes questions ; c'est à sa douceur, à son esprit éclairé qui en atteignant les branches les plus élevées des hautes sciences, sait encore se plier au niveau des esprits les plus ordinaires, que je dois la connaissance de quelques détails sur ce pays bien digne d'être le rival de la France." "Notre 1er relais est à Brenfort sur la Tamise. Le roi George III avait choisi ce lieu pour sa résidence d'été. Il y a a fait bâtir un château gothique dont la singularité et le mauvais goût rappellent autant le pauvre royal esprit qui l'ordonne que la sottise de l'architecte qui put en donner le plan. Ce monument tombe déjà en ruine, car Georges IV, au lieu de continuer les folies de son père, en a créé de nouvelles dans le goût chinois" . "La grande route de Bath présente un aspect bien différent. Elle traverse des landes immenses pendant plusieurs milles qui ne sont interrompues que par de jolies maisons de campagne dont les parcs ornés de la plus belle végétation contrastent d'une manière frappante avec l'aridité qui les entoure. Ainsi la terre pour être fertile ne demande que l'aide de l'homme opulent et celui-ci satisfait des landes où il peut chasser le renard et le lièvre oublie que des familles nombreuses pourraient trouver l'opulence dans le sacrifice d'un plaisir qui se changerait bientôt en une source de jouissances réelles" . "L'anglais s'occupe du bonheur du monde entier, chez lui une grande partie de la nation vit d'aumône, et cette île renferme 22 millions d'arpents incultes !" . "Nous atteignons le village de Belfont, si célèbre dans la gastronomie anglaise par l'auberge de Harvey, auteur immortel d'une sauce piquante à laquelle il a donné son nom, et qui est vraiment digne de l'éternité tant qu'il y aura des palais délicats. Cette auberge a encore acquis un autre genre de célébrité en logeant chaque nuit les fly-midnight. Le génie anglais (grâce à la bonne sauce du maître de cette maison, qui provoque le débit de ses vins de Portugal), reconnaît aux mouches de cette habitation un pouvoir surnaturel.

Auf Initiative eines Freundes der Familie kam der Bauernsohn nach Zürich als Lehrling in die Kunsthandlung Heinrich Füsslis. 1817 kam er auf Empfehlung Füsslis nach Neapel zu dem bekannten Maler W. Huber (1787-1871), wo es ihm aber nicht gefiel und auch nur sieben Monate dort arbeitete. 1821 unternahm er eine Reise nach Sizilien. Seit 1825 weilte er in Rom, hier war er mit H. Vernet (1758-1836) befreundet. Eine Reise nach Athen mit Ausflügen nach Konstantinopel, Smyrna und Troja folgte in den Jahren 1832-1835. Ab 1835 war er wieder in Neapel. 1838 kehrte er über Rom und Florenz nach Zürich zurück, 1840-1842 hielt er sich in London auf, wo er auch heiratete. Wolfensberger galt als eigenwilliger Künstler, dessen in der 1. Hälfte des 19. Jahrhunderts entstandenen Zeichnungen sehr modern wirken.

      Uppsala: Royal Academy Press, 1822. Small quarto, [ii], 8 pp.; a very fine copy, uncut and unbound, as issued. A scarce and significant academic paper, this was the first serious attempt at compiling a formal fauna of Australia, in the form of a dissertation presented by Huss before Carl Thunberg, Linnaeus's great disciple and successor. Thunberg, using the traditional method of publishing his own work through the medium of his students' dissertations, "mapped" much of the flora and fauna of South Africa, China, Japan, and, in this instance, Australia. His prolific output included especially important work on both the botany and zoology of South Africa and the far east, but this is his only work that deals specifically with Australia. This is an especially fine copy of this rare and important piece.

        Hl. Nikolaus mit zwei Engeln.

      . Radierung, 1822, auf festem Velin. 16,4:14,8 cm. Im breiten Rand etwas fleckig. Provenienz: Sammlung Pachen, nicht bei Lugt. Literatur: Andresen/Heller 8; Fischer/v. Blankenhagen WV 362 A; Fecker 26. Radierung nach einem 1822 entstandenen Altarbild in der katholischen Pfarrkirche in Ichenheim (vgl. Fischer/v. Blankenhagen WV 362).. Marie Ellenrieder wurde von dem Konstanzer Miniaturmaler J. Einsle (1794 - nach 1850) unterrichtet. Danach erhielt sie als erste Frau die Zulassung zum Kunststudium an der Akademie in München. Anschließend wurde sie Porträtmalerin an südwestdeutschen Fürstenhöfen (Hohenzollerischer Hof in Sigmaringen, Fürstenbergischer Hof in Donaueschingen), ebenso malte sie religiöse Themen. 1822-1824 hielt sie sich in Rom auf, dort machte sie die Bekanntschaft von Louise Seidler (1786-1866) sowie von F. Overbeck (1789-1869) und weiteren Nazarenern; häufig ausbleibende Anerkennung durch ihre männlichen deutsch-römischen Kollegen führte jedoch zur Ausbildung einzelgängerischen Verhaltens. Ein einjähriger Aufenthalt in Florenz folgte. Nach ihrer Rückkehr nach Baden ist die nahezu ausschließliche Fokussierung auf religiöse Kunst zu beobachten. Seit 1829 lebte sie in Karlsruhe und wurde zur großherzoglich-badischen Hofmalerin ernannt. Reisen nach Zürich, Dresden und München folgten. Ab den 1830er Jahren folgte durch eine schon seit dem ersten Italienaufenthalt in selbstzerstörerische Selbstanklagen und Depressionen fallende Gemütslage sowie durch Ablehnung und Verleugnung der eigenen Sinnlichkeit und Körperlichkeit und Zweifel an den eigenen künstlerischen Leistungen die zunehmende Abkehr vom gesellschaftlich-öffentlichen Leben. 1834/35 kehrte sie nach Konstanz zurück. 1838-1840 unternahm sie die zweite Italienreise. In den 40er und 50er Jahren gelingt es ihr, nach Jahren mit Krankheit und Depressionen, erneut zu ihrer schöpferischen Kraft zurückzufinden.

According to Cohn, the plates "Pigs among roses," and The parson and the Quaker" are by George and Robert; "How happy could I be with either," solely by George; two plates dated Jan 29, 1823 ("Stop thief" and "Moll Row") signed I.R. Cruikshank are by Robert and George.Complete copies with all twelve parts are scarce; only three are found in institutional holdings worldwide. Most institutional copies are single parts from the series, which publish contemporary theatrical entertainments.The London bindery of W. T. Morrell was established c. 1861 as successor to the firm begun by Francis Bedford, who, in turn, had assumed control of the esteemed bindery of Charles Lewis. Sarah T. Prideaux, in "Modern Bookbindings," states that Morrell had a very large business that supplied "all the booksellers with bindings designed by his men," bindings that were "remarkable for their variety and merit."

        Set of the three Reports of Inquiry

      House of Commons: 1822-, 1823. Folio, the three works bound together; some foxing; old quarter calf, rubbed, rebacked retaining original spine, vellum corners. Full set of the Bigge reports. A fine set of the series of reports of the official enquiry into Governor Macquarie's administration of New South Wales, comprising: 1) Report of the Commissioner of Inquiry into the State of the Colony (here in its first issue of June 1822, with the libel against William Wentworth. This first issue was withdrawn and is now rare. It was later reprinted on August 5 1822). 2) Report of the Commissioner of Inquiry on Judicial Establishments (February 1823). 3) Report of the Commissioner of Inquiry on Agriculture and Trade (March 1823). John Thomas Bigge was appointed Royal Commissioner, with sweeping powers, by Lord Bathurst - ostensibly to examine the transportation system, but in fact to cast a critical eye over every aspect of Macquarie's controversial administration. Bigge was unyielding in his critique and relations between the two were strained. However, by the time his reports were published, Macquarie had already resigned. Bigge's reports were central to the political history of the 1820s, and their influence can be seen in the later constitutional and political history of Australia. Indeed, it was as a result of Bigge's recommendations that the New South Wales Act of 1823 was ratified, authorising the establishment of a Supreme Court and Legislative Council in New South Wales, as well as a Supreme Court in Van Diemen's Land, and marked an important step towards responsible government in the colonies. Bigge's reports are also essential sources for information about conditions in New South Wales and Van Diemen's Land in the 1820s, not least because of his recognition of the growing importance of the colonies for wealthy free settlers. Bigge had urged the Colonial Office to seek places away from Sydney both to send intractable offenders and to encourage free settlement by releasing land for graziers. It was as a direct result of his report that the Moreton Bay area was first explored with a view to future settlement. Consequently, Oxley was commissioned by Brisbane to reconnoitre the north coast. He explored Moreton Bay and named the Brisbane River; his report ultimately led to the foundation of the Moreton Bay colony.

      16 lithographed plates (one folding) & two hand-colored engraved maps (one of which is very large & folding). 3 p.l., viii, 2, 5-428 pp. Large 4to, cont. marbled boards (small defect towards head of spine), green leather lettering piece on spine. Paris: G. Dufour & E. d'Ocagne, 1822. New edition, a rewritten and greatly expanded version of Cuvier and Brongniart's Géographie Minéralogique des Environs de Paris (1808 & 1811). This geological classic extended geological time, showed an alteration between marine and fresh water conditions, and demonstrated the value of precisely collected and identified fossils as criteria for tracing a detailed series of strata. Brongniart, with the assistance of Cuvier, "drew up a systematic table of the succession of stratigraphical horizons in accordance primarily with the sequence of the deposits of the ground, and with the particular fossils characterising each group of deposits."-Zittel, p. 104. Of the nine formations Cuvier and Brongniart identified, only two were known in Werner's system. This edition contains for the first time Brongniart's descriptions of strata from many different parts of Europe. This additional evidence led him to stress the primacy of fossil evidence over that of lithology as a criterion for age, wherever the two sources of evidence were found to conflict. Apart from the minor binding defect, a fine, crisp, and large copy. The folding plate has a clean tear in a fold without loss. ❧ D.S.B., II, p. 493-97. Zittel, pp. 104-06. .

        Aberdeen from the South

      Smith & Elder, London 1822 - An important topographical view of Aberdeen, county town of Aberdeenshire in north east Scotland This view should perhaps be seen as an immediate forerunner of John Clark's own Views in Scotland published in London between 1824 and 1825 with a total of 35 plates. The view is taken from the south bank of the Dee looking across the river to what a contemporary gazetteer calls 'New Aberdeen', the same work notes that the town was situated 'on rising ground, on the north bank of the Dee, near the mouth of the river, and about 1 1/2 miles to the south of the river Dona royal burgh and parish in the county of the same name.' (Fullarton [publishers] A Gazetteer of the World 1856, I, p.12). The population in 1821 was 26,484 and had risen to 35,260 by 1841. The gazetteer notes that New Aberdeen 'is a large and handsome city with spacious streets. Union-street is upwards of a mile in length, and of great beauty. Broad-street. is celebrated as having been the residence of Lord Byron while under his mother's care.' The chief sources of income were from the docks, salmon fishing, machine manufacturing, spinning and weaving of cotton, flax and wool. Hand-coloured aquatint, by John Clark.

        Vue d'Agrigente, prise des Hauteurs

      [peint par Coignet d'apr?s Michalon; Grav? par S.Himely; Imprim? par Sauni?e], Paris 1822 - From `Voyage pittoresque en Sicile': a very rare series of sublime views of some of the best preserved Greek temples in the world, beautifully hand-coloured and here in the rarest state with the plate on india paper mounted. Published in Paris between 1822 and 1826, Achille-Etienne Gigault de la Salle's `Voyage pittoresque en Sicile', was published in three forms: coloured, coloured before letters or, as here, on india paper, coloured and mounted. The work can now be seen as a showcase for the talents of the best landscape artists and aquatint engravers of the period. Agrigento is the capital of Agrigento provincia, near the southern coast of Sicily. The plateau site of the ancient city is extraordinarily rich in Greek remains. A wall, with remnants of eight gates, can be traced from the two northern peaks (the Rock of Athena and the hill of Girgenti) to the ridge that carried the south line of the city's defenses. An almost continuous sacred area along this ridge has been excavated to reveal Agrigento's most famous remains, its seven Doric temples. Cf. Abbey Travel I, 262, pl. 30; cf. Brunet V, 1379. Aquatint engraving, coloured by hand. India paper mounted.

        Silver Medal: 'Voyage autour du Monde de la Corvette la Coquille'

      Andrieu & Puymaurin, Paris 1822 - Silver medal, 50 mm, toned and a little scuffed above the bust, but very fine. A very good example of the rare silver medal commemorating the voyage of Louis-Isidore Duperrey to the Pacific. Duperrey was perhaps Freycinet's greatest prot?g?, having served as Lieutenant aboard the Uranie during the voyage around the world. Duperrey began petitioning for his own command of a similar expedition immediately on his return to France. Duperrey's voyage was one of the greatest of the French grands voyages to the Pacific. The expedition set out from Toulon on 11 August 1822, with the intention of collecting scientific data and specimens, but also instructed to report on the possibility of establishing a penal colony in Western Australia. Duperrey had as his second-in-command Dumont d'Urville, who was to become the most experienced French commander in the Pacific. While science led the expedition, there was also an unspoken goal of discovering where France might carve out an empire in the South Pacific. His voyage was of some 73,000 miles, with major destinations including Australia, New Zealand, and New Guinea. By far the greatest contributions of the expedition were scientific, cartographic and ethnographic, and the Duperrey voyage account is a famously sumptuous production, with exquisite coloured plates. Of some rarity: a bronze version is recorded in the Rex Nan Kivell collection of the National Library of Australia.

The first Jesuits' edition was published in Geneva in 1739-1742 and the second in 1760. These so-called Jesuits' editions (so-called because the editors were really Minims) are valued because of their copious commentary, and also because they contain additional works by Bernoully, Maclarin, and Euler which represent all that was done on the theory of tides between the publication of Newton's Principia and the investigations of Laplace. (see Babson 30, Babson 32, Gray 17, and Wallis 17).

        Autograph manuscript signed. 10pp., with Recamier Autograph letter signed

      Paris, 1822. <p>Chaussier, François (1746-1828). Autograph manuscript draft. 10pp. on 10 numbered leaves. [Paris:] 3 February 1822. Written on the backs of several printed and manuscript documents, including the following: Recamier, Joseph (1774-1852). Autograph letter signed to Chaussier. 1 page plus integral address leaf. [Paris:] 17 January 1822. Together two items. 254 x 201 mm. A few lacunae where seals were broken, a few pin-holes, minor marginal fraying, but very good. </p><p>Chaussier, a pioneer in forensic medicine, introduced the teaching of legal medicine in France in 1790. He began his medical career in Dijon, where he taught anatomy, chemistry and material medica at the Dijon Academy. In 1794, at the request of the French government, Chaussier went to Paris to help reorganize the country&#39;s system of medical education through the creation of the Écoles de Santé. He afterwards served as professor of anatomy in the new school, taught the course of chemistry and medicine at the École Polytechnique, and worked as a physician at the Hospice de la Maternité, where he conducted research on teratology and forensic medicine. During his long and distinguished medical career Chaussier earned a reputation as an expert in legal medicine, giving consultations, writing forensic reports, and publishing several works on the subject, including Manuel médico-légal des poisons (1824), Recueil de mémoires, consultations, et rapports sur divers objets de médecine légale (1824) and Mémoire médico-légal sur la viabilité de l&#39;enfant naissant (1826). </p><p>Chaussier&#39;s manuscript draft is a review of two earlier medical reports concerning the case of a newborn infant found dead in a cesspool. Chaussier&#39;s handwriting is difficult to read, and we have not been able to decipher all of the draft; however, we have been able to determine that much of the draft is devoted to discussing the state of the dead infant&#39;s lungs, attempting to determine whether the infant had begun to breathe before its demise. Chaussier describes the appearance of the lungs of dead infants in similar cases:</p><p>Un enfant naissant meurt quelques minutes après avoir respire et dans ces cas, dont nous avons souvent des exemples a l&#39;hospice de la maternité, les poumons sont toujours développés, rosés, crépitants, leur poids [&#133;] et lors qu&#39;on les met dans l&#39;eau ils submergent complètement.</p><p>[A newborn infant dies several minutes after having breathed and in these cases, of which we often have examples at the Hospice de la Maternité, the lungs are always developed, pink, crepitant, their weight [&#133;], and when one puts them in water they always sink completely.]</p><p>And elsewhere:</p><p>Mais remarquons . . . selon qu&#39;un enfant est mort après avoir respiré, faut-il donc en conclure ainsi qu&#39;on le fait trop souvent que cet enfant a été tué.</p><p>[But note. . . if a child died after breathing, it should be concluded as one does too often that this child was killed.]</p><p>He also notes that the infant&#39;s umbilical cord was not present, and mentions the possibility that gas present in the infant cadaver&#39;s lungs might be the result of putrefaction, given the fact that the body had been in the cesspool eleven days before its discovery.</p><p>Chaussier wrote this draft of his report on the backs of several printed or manuscript documents, including a letter sent to him a few weeks earlier by Joseph Recamier, chief physician at the Hôtel-Dieu, a pioneer in gynecological surgery (see Garrison-Morton 6033), and a cancer specialist who came up with the modern definition of metastasis. The letter reads as follows:</p><p>Monsieur et très honoré collègue,</p><p>On doit traiter une question de médecine légale au sujet d&#39;un chevreuil et d&#39;une dindonneau truffée trouvés morts chez Gri[&#133;] rue neuve des petits champs no. 4. La séance s&#39;ouvrira par une discussion sur les empoisonnements par les huitres le 24 jvr. courant à 3h et . On écoutera avec soin la question des champignons malgré les favorites [&#133;] du docteur [ ?poulet].</p><p>Voyez, si vos affaires vous permettent d&#39;être du [&#133;] dans des questions aussi importantes. Ce sera pourtant la [&#133;] et pour moi en particulier un plaisir de plus. J&#39;ai l&#39;honneur d&#39;être parfaitement Monsieur et cher maitre votre très humble serviteur Recamier.</p><p>[We must deal with a question of forensic medicine in the matter of a deer and of a young truffle-stuffed turkey found dead at Gri[&#133;]&#39;s, rue neuve des Petits Champs no. 4. The session will begin with a discussion on oyster poisoning on the 24th of this January at 3:30. We will consider carefully the question of mushrooms despite the favorite [&#133;] of doctor [?chicken].</p><p>See if your affairs will allow you to be [&#133;] on such important questions. This will yet be [&#133;] and for me in particular an additional pleasure. I have the honor to be, Monsieur and dear master, your very humble servant, Recamier.]</p><p>Recamier&#39;s letter is most likely a jocular invitation to dinner, referring humorously to a proposed forensic investigation into the deaths of a deer and a truffle-stuffed turkey, a discussion of poisoning by oysters, and "the question of mushrooms." Burton, Napoleon and the Woman Question (2007), pp. 97-98. This is the only autograph manuscript by Chaussier we have handled in more than forty years of trading. It is also the only manuscript we have ever handled in which the author wrote his draft on the back of other documents. </p>
