        Traité du somnambulisme, et des différentes modifications qu'il présente.

      Paris, Dentu, 1823 - Paris, Dentu, 1823; 1 vol. in-8 (21 x 13.5 cm), (4), IV, 524 pp. (chiffré par erreur 324), demi-basane verte de l'époque, dos lisse orné, tranches marbrées, intérieur d'une belle fraîcheur avec seulement quelques pâles rousseurs, très petits manques marginaux à quelques feuillets sans gravité, très bon état. - THE FIRST FRENCH SCIENTIFIC BOOK ON SOMNAMBULISM (a fine copy) - . Edition originale devenue fort rare de la première monographie scientifique sur le somnambulisme parue en France. Alexandre Bertrand (1795-1831) était à la fois docteur en médecine et ancien élève de l'Ecole Polytechnique. Il s'adonna, durant toute sa courte vie professionnelle, aux phénomènes attribués au magnétisme animal, tentant d'expliquer scientifiquement le magnétisme, le somnambulisme, l'extase. Il enseigna à l'Athénée. Comme le fit remarquer Alan Gauld, cet ouvrage novateur est très bien écrit, basé sur une importante expérience personnelle et très documenté. Bertrand réfute la théorie du fluide de Mesmer et propose une théorie psychologique, mettant en avant l'imagination du magnétisé. Il fut, avec l'abbé de Faria, un précurseur de la doctrine de la suggestion. Il reconnaît quatre variétés de somnambulisme, qu'il étudie successivement : essentiel, symptomatique, artificiel et extatique. Cette dernière variété, extatique, est décrite ici pour la première fois ; Bertand étudie la possession des Ursulines de Loudun, l'histoire d'Urbain Grandier, les convulsionnaires de St Médard, etc. Sur certains points, Bertand est considéré par Barrucand comme un précurseur de l'Ecole de Nancy et par Gauld plutôt comme un précurseur de l'Ecole de la Salpêtrière. Références : Crabtree A: Animal magnetism, early hypnotism and psychical research, p. 313 : "one of the most thorough works on somnambulism written to that date."; Wallace ER & Gach J: History of Psychiatry and Medical Psychology, p. 563 :"[this book] provided the first detailed and systematic treatment of magnetic somnambulism." ; Ellenberger HF: The discovery of the unconscious, p. 76 : "Alexandre Bertrand who had a dual training as a physician and as a engineer, approached the phenomena of animal magnetism with a view toward exploring them in a scientific and experimental manner. Janet who held Bertrands work in the highest esteem, considered him to be the true initiator of the scientific study of hypnosis."; Barrucand D : Histoire de l'hypnose en France, 40 ; Gauld A: A history of hypnotism, 132-133, 277-279 : "His writings exhibit qualities which should still commend him to modern readers. He gives a fairly full account of the 'epidemics of ecstasy'. Bertrand emerges as an early proponent of a 'special state' theory of the magnetic somnambulism. In certain respects - his presenting magnetic somnambulism as an abnormal state with links to hystero-epilepsy - he is more nearly a forerunner of the school of the Salpêtrière."; Dorbon : Bibliotheca Esoterica, 308 ; Goblot JJ : Extase, hystérie, possession: les théories d'Alexandre Bertrand, Romantisme, 1979, 9, 53-59. © S.A.S.

      - Auf dem Träger Blindstempel des Verlegers (Träger etwas gebräunt und angestaubt, mit kleinen Randläsuren, sonst sehr gut erhalten). Rarissimum der frühen Potsdam-Photographie und wohl erstes Foto des von Ludwig Persius, nach Plänen Schinkels erbauten Gebäudes. Die frühesten überlieferten Potsdam-Fotos stammen von sog. 'Reisephotographen', also solchen, die nicht ortsansässig waren. In Potsdam waren dies Michiels (1823-1887), der 1856 dort photographierte, und die Brüder Schneider, die erst 1859 Berlin und Potsdam bereisten. Michiels ist vor allem für seine Aufnahmen vom Kölner Dom bekannt, von seinen - hervorragenden - Potsdam-Photographien tauchten bisher nur ganz wenige auf. Vier Motive (dieses nicht) wurden 2006 im Rahmen der Ausstellung 'Auslöser Potsdam' gezeigt, weitere kennt man nur aus dem Inserat, das der Verleger Eisen 1858 in der Leipziger 'Illustrirten Zeitung' schaltete. Abgesehen von der Seltenheit ist das große Format und der ausgezeichnete Erhaltungszustand des hier angebotenen Abzugs bemerkenswert. Der seinerzeitige Preis betrug übrigens 2 Taler (Thaler) pro Blatt, das entspricht etwa dem Wochengehalt eines Webers um 1850 oder dem halben Monatslohn einer Stickerin oder Weißnäherin in Berlin. - Vgl.

      Bonn, Weber. 1823 - Sprache: Indisch 8°. XXVI, 189 S. Weinroter Hldr. um 1860 mit goldgepr. Rückentitel u. dezenter Rückenverg. Brunet III, 1305. Goed. VI, 14, 53. - Erste Ausgabe, sehr selten kein Exemplar im Jahrbuch der Auktionspreise. - „Édition imprimée avec un caractère devanagari, gravé d’après les dessins du traducteur et sous sa direction" (Brunet). - „Die Bhagavadgita ist das am weitesten verbreitete religiöse Buch Indiens. Es wird in allen Kreisen des Volkes gelesen, studiert und auswendig gelernt, da es sich als beste Tröstung in den Leiden des Lebens bewährt hat und als heilsamste Vorbereitung auf den Tod gilt. In Europa wurde die Bhagavadgita zuerst durch die englische Übertragung von Charles Wilkins (1785) und dann durch die lateinische von August Wilhelm von Schlegel (1823) bekannt" (Helmut Hoffmann u. Mario Vallauri in KLL I, 1965, S. 1573). „Das Werk [die Bhagavadgita] war durch seinen Inhalt von der höchsten Wichtigkeit und ganz und gar geeignet, Aufmerksamkeit und Theilnahme für die neue Geistesarbeit [die indische Philologie in Deutschland] zu wecken und zu fesseln. Diese lieferte Schlegel in einer, für die damaligen Verhältnisse der Sanskritkunde, wunderbar meisterhaften Weise in einer Uebersetzung, deren Latinität allein zum Studium derselben vermocht hätte, und in, wenn gleich kurzen, doch im Ganzen ausgezeichneten critischen und exegetischen Anmerkungen" (Benfey, Geschichte der Sprachwissenschaft und orientalischen Philologie in Deutschland, 394-95). – 1818, im Gründungsjahr der Universität Bonn, hatte August Wilhelm von Schlegel an dieser Hochschule den ersten deutschen Lehrstuhl für Indologie übernommen. Die erste aus dieser Lehrtätigkeit erwachsene große Veröffentlichung war dann die Edition des vollständigen Sanskrittextes der Bhagavadgita, für dessen Satz sich Schlegel in Paris die Devanagari-Typen auf eigene Kosten hatte anfertigen lassen. – Sowohl wissenschaftshistorisch bedeutende Publikation für die Indologie wie typographiegeschichtlich bemerkenswertes Zeugnis wie weltliterarisch berühmtes Werk in einem Exemplar von erlesener Provenienz: aus dem Besitz des Orientalisten Julius Mohl (1800-1876), der sich in Frankreich als Jules Mohl hat einbürgern lassen und sich dort vor allem als Lehrer des Persischen einen Namen gemacht hat; nach seinem Tod wurde die Bibliothek Mohls versteigert, im gedruckten Katalog ist die vorliegende Bhagavadgita mit der auf dem Respektblatt eingetragenen Nr. 1204 verzeichnet (Catalogue de la bibliothèque de feu M J. Mohl, Paris, Leroux, 1876, S. 125). Später befand sich das Buch im Besitz des Latinisten Ernst Zinn (1910-1990). Die jeweiligen Signaturen finden sich auf dem Respektblatt (Zinn) und dem vorderen fliegenden Vorsatz (Mohl – mit dem Schenkungshinweis „donné par Doudan avril 1871 pendant la Commune", also vom Journalisten Ximénès Doudan [1800-1872] während der Pariser Kommune). - Gelenke leicht brüchig, Ecken bestoßen, Deckelbezug berieben, stellenweise etwas braunfl. u. leicht gebräunt, gutes Exemplar. First edition. – In 1818, the year of foundation of the university of Bonn, August Wilhelm von Schlegel had assumed at this academy the first German chair for Indology. The first important publication due to this teaching activity was the edition of the complete Sanskrit text of the Bhagavadgita, for the typesetting Schlegel had ordered the Devanagari types in Paris at his own expense. – Slightly browned, a little brown-stained. – Scientifically and historically important publication for Indology and typographically exceptional testimony as well as famous work for world literature in a copy of distinguished provenance: from the estate of the orientalist Julius Mohl (1800-1876) who was naturalized in France as Jules Mohl and who achieved an excellent reputation as teacher of Persian; after his death Mohl’s library was auctioned, in the printed catalogue the present Bhagavadgita is listed with no. 1204 (Catalogue de la bibliothèque de feu M J. Mohl, Paris, Leroux, 1876, p. 125). [Attributes: First Edition]

        Manuscript Travel Journal of a "A Tour on the Continent" , Features a Visit to the Site of the Battle of Waterloo

      Netherlands, France, Belgium, circa 1823., 1823. Manuscript fair copy travel journal of a "A Tour on the Continent" lasting one month from 13 September 1821 to 11 October 1821, which features a visit to the site of the Battle of Waterloo, made by J.D. and W.C., the latter being William Chapman, an ancestral relation of British historian and economist Guy Patterson Chapman, possibly his paternal grandfather. Evidently with the original travel journal or paper notes in hand, this volume was written in 1823, or shortly thereafter, as the leafs are watermarked with that year, and features the bookplate of William Chapman to front pastedown, presumably the author. 8vo. 134 pages in manuscript, in a fine hand, with a later manuscript dedication to front leaf dated July 1892. Paginated in manuscript by the writer to upper margins. Half green roan over brown paper boards. Some wear to boards, otherwise in very good condition, a pleasing volume. The highlight of the journal is a contemplative walkabout on the field of Waterloo only six years after the great battle that defeated Napoleon's army, with nine pages of the journal describing his observations at the site, including remnants of war, and reflections on the critical manoeuvres and assaults. Also fascinating is Chapman's firsthand description of The Promenades Aeriennes or Aerial Strolls - the first modern rollercoaster - which was powered by horses and operated for seven years from 1817 to 1824 in Parc Beaujon, an amusement park on the Champs Elysees in Paris. A pleasing and detailed visual image of the old-time charm of notable continental cities, splendid tree-lined vistas and promenades which have since been commercially overtaken, ancient architecture and nineteenth century homes, citizens of three unique countries and their customs!.

        Traité de l'association domestique-agricole. (Includes:) Sommaire du traité de l'association domestique-agricole ou attraction industrielle.

      Paris, London, Bossange père, P. Mongie ainé, M. Bossange et Comp., 1822-1823. - 8vo. 3 vols. LXIV, 592 pp. VIII, 648 pp. (2), 8, 8B-8E, 9-16, (1329)-1398, B1398-1398E, 1399-1448, (1) pp. Contemporary green half calf, spine gilt in compartments, gilt lettering, corners, gilt fillets on sides (some very light browning, first four leaves of the second work with a dampstain in the lower outer blank corner). First editions of Fourier's principal work, together with the very rare supplement. The first volume is signed by Fourier on verso of the half title. This is Fourier's most important work, containing "the essence of Fourier's doctrine" (D. O. Evans, Social Romanticism in France 1830-1848, p. 129.) The main thesis of the work is the discovery of "harmonie": the entire work endeavors to prove how this harmony can be established and how life and society should be designed so as to ensure success. In an attempt to garner further attention for his ideas, he published the "Sommaire du traité" in 1823, a supplement often lacking. Indeed, the work went virtually unnoticed. Although Fourier is often seen as a dreamer and fantasist, he anticipated Marx in many of his ideas: the theory of poverty and exploitation and their relation to the means of production can already be found with him, and the Marxist concept of the "all-round man" is an idea on which Fourier elaborately worked and which is the most important result of his "harmonie". Fourier was "emphatically a serious social thinker who contributed much of permanent value, not only to socialist and co-operative ideas, but also to the solution of the entire problem of work and of the incentives and human relations connected with it (cf. Kolakowsky, History of Marxism; Quack, de Socialisten, and G. D. H. Cole, A History of Socialist Thought). Numerous Fourierist communities were established, chiefly in the United States, where the way had been prepared by Robert Owen. Fourierism was introduced to the U.S. by Albert Brisbane, whose "Social Destiny of Man" appeared in 1840. Brisbane had studied in France under Fourier in 1834. In 1842 the New York Tribune, then edited by Horace Greeley, placed at his disposal a column in which for over a year he popularized Fourier's doctrines. - Contains, bound before the title page, the leaf "Instructions pour le Vendeur et l'Acheteur", and on the last page the "Appendice aux Conclusions" as well as two inserted quires, the first, B8-E8, containing "Banques Rurales", the second, B1398-1398E, "Carton à placer entre 1398 et 1399. Antienne du chap. III. La 4e phase de civilisation, I, 159". Extremely rare in this complete state, conforming with the details given by Del Bo. Bound in the "Sommaire" is an autograph letter signed by Charles Fourier, dated 9 Oct. 1836, written on paper of "La Réforme Industrielle ou Le Phalanstère" (2 pp. on bifolium with integral address panel, to Madame Caroline Thibaut, rue St. Victor, no. 76 in Paris). Fourier writes about his having met a lady friend of the recipient's: "[.] est une jolie femme, je m'en suis fort bien aperçu, et si j'avais eu 30 ans de moins je lui aurais dit ce que j'en pensais; mais j'ai trop à redouter que de pareils aveux ne soient indifferens à qui en serait l'objet [.]". I: Del Bo 5. Kress C.864. Goldsmiths 23694. Einaudi 1960 (both works). - II: Del Bo 6. Kress C.1060. Goldsmiths 23997. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

Argomento centrale è la prima spedizione di Vasco da Gama nel 1498, impresa che dopo una lunga serie di tentativi sfortunati aveva infine coronato di successo le speranze di pervenire dall'Occidente per via di mare al lontano Oriente favoloso, e che era apparsa degna di essere celebrata da un nuovo Omero o da un nuovo Virgilio”.

        Printed land grant, completed in manuscript, to John Smith

      Sydney, 1823. In excellent condition.. Large printed vellum leaf, completed in manuscript, approx. 290 x 257 mm., verso blank except for ms. docket title; original folds, with well-preserved ribbon and paper seal attached. Fine original land grant signed by the sixth governor, for 200 acres in Methven, Van Diemen's Land, free of "all Taxes, Quit Rents, Services, and Acknowledgements whatsoever" for five years, thereafter a quit rent of four shillings per annum. Methven was a Tasmanian district name long since abandoned; it refers to the Oatlands area in central Tasmania.Sir Thomas Brisbane (1773-1860) succeeded Macquarie as governor of New South Wales, and held office from 1821 to 1825. Much of his work as governor was to reform the system of land grants which had mushroomed under Macquarie leaving confusion and boundary disputes prevailing among grantees. Brisbane instituted proper surveys and reformed the whole system of grants, ensuring that only those who were both willing to improve the land and had the capital to do so were successful in obtaining grants. This grant was witnessed by William Elyard junior, then second clerk in the colonial secretary's office, and Robert Crawford, principal clerk. Crawford was the builder of Clyde Bank in 1824: situated in the Rocks, Sydney, it was designed by Francis Greenway and is the oldest remaining house in the city of Sydney. The document was further signed by Brisbane's nemesis, Frederick Goulburn, as registrar. Goulburn was the first official colonial secretary to be appointed and took an active role in the issuing of land grants. His handling of grants was one of the major causes of the acrimony between himself and the governor, the cause of the collapse of Brisbane's administration and the governor's recall.

        The Works of Lord Byron

      London: John Murray, 1823 Early edition. Five volumes. Original publisher's brown paper over blue paper-covered boards with tan spine label. A very good set with some wear and sunning to spines, as well as toning to page edges. Each volume with previous owner's rubber stamp within first few pages of text; volume I with the front hinge starting; volumes III-V with spines starting and fragile, but intact. Overall, a very attractive set in the original publisher's bindings. Uncommon in this condition. This collection of works is one of several editions published after the first in 1819. The first two volumes comprise Byron's well-known narrative poem Childe Harold's Pilgrimage, a semi-autobiographical work originally published in four parts between 1812 and 1818. Volumes III-V contain several shorter works, including the short lyric poem "She Walks in Beauty," and the narrative poem, "Mazeppa." This particular set was published the year before Byron's death in 1824.. Early Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good.
