      London, Pemberton, 1825.. 20 x 13cm, Leder d.Zt., Deckelblindprägung, Rückenschild (mit Fehlstellen), XXXIV, 1 Bl., 284 S.. sehr seltene EA von einem der ersten Werke über Befindlichkeitsstörungen, die mit körperlichen und affektiven Symptomen auftreten und immer schon Ärzte und später Psychiater herausforderten, weil keine richtigen Ursachen faßbar waren. Blackmore (1653-1729) definierte hier erstmals den "English Spleen", sieht Zusammenhänge zum Klima, zur Luft, zum übermäßigen Fleischkonsum u.a.m., und dieser "Spleen" wird zum Unterscheidungsmerkmal zwischen Briten und anderen Nationen (vgl. DÖRNER 43f. in "Bürger und Irre", HUNTER/MACALPINE 319ff.).

It was originally issued in parts and these volumes are in what looks like an original publisher's cloth binding which is worn and disintegrating with some poor stitching, so this set has been priced to take account of rebinding costs. The book is in a square octavo format and text pages are printed on one side only. The contents are clean and bright with beautiful colouring on the plates (faults are listed in the detailed description below). There is some offsetting where particularly strong colour has been applied and shows through to the back of the plates. All have a decorative title page and an additional title page.

Vol I has a dedication 'to the lovers of Botany', preface and index - the 9th plate has some browning at the edges and there are some loose pages. Vol II has a preface and index pages. Some initial leaves are detached and the decorative title is browned. One plate lacks a tissue guard and one plate is slightly spotty as are around 5 of the surrounding text pages. Vol III has an index. The 18th plate has a slight crease at the bottom. Vol IV has a preface, index and dedication page to the Queen. The preliminaries, and title page are spotted; there is a small ink signature to the top of the second title page; and 2 plates have slight marking.

        The Diary of Henry Teonge, chaplain on board His Majesty's ships Assistance, Bristol, and Royal Oak, anno 1675 to 1679.

      London, Charles Knight, 1825. - 8vo. XVIII, (2), 327, (1) pp. With engr. t. p. and lithogr. folding facsimile. Modern half calf (by Bayntun's, Bath) with giltstamped red spine label and marbled boards. Edges sprinkled in red. First edition. - The fame of the English clergyman Teonge (1621-90) rests on his present work. Due to financial difficulties, he enlisted in the Navy and became a chaplain on the ships Assistance, Bristol and Royal Oak, completing three voyages to the Mediterranean, where he searched for pirates, landed in Syria and visited Malta, Zante, Cephalonia, and Aleppo. - "The interest of Teonge's life is concentrated in the diary of the few years he spent at sea, which gives an amusing and precious picture of life in the navy at that time. This journal, from 20 May 1675 to 28 June 1679, having lain in manuscript for over a century, was purchased from a Warwickshire family by Charles Knight, who edited it in 1825 as ‘The Diary of Henry Teonge,’ with a facsimile of the first folio of the manuscript (London, 8vo). The narrative reveals the diarist as a pleasant, lively, easy-going man, not so strict as to prevent his falling in with the humours of his surroundings" (DNB). The diary contains accounts of cruises in the Channel, Atlantic, and Mediterranean, leavened with occasional songs, sonnets, acrostics, etc. "The nature of Teonge's diary, and the disappearance of the manuscript for almost a century after its first publication in 1825, led to persistent suggestions that it might have been a forgery. Confirmation both of Teonge's existence and of the sequence of events which he recorded came from the Admiralty records in the Public Record Office, and the re-emergence of the manuscript itself at a Sotheby’s sale in 1918 put the matter conclusively to rest" (ODNB). - Occasional insignificant brownstaining; altogether a well-preserved copy. Allibone 2375. DNB 56, 76. Lowndes 2605. Weber II, 412. OCLC 2438435. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Traité clinique et physiologique de l'encéphalite, ou inflammation du cerveau et de ses suites, telles que le ramolissement, la suppuration, les abcès, les tubercules, le squirrhe, le cancer, etc.

      J.B. Baillière, Paris 1825 - In-8, XXIV, 350 pp., demi-chagrin vert de l¿époque, dos un peu passé, tranches marbrées, coins usés, cachet de bibliothèque au titre (Dr. L.M.), très bon état intérieur hormis de légères rousseurs. Jean Baptiste Bouillaud (1796-1881) fut professeur de clinique médicale à la Charité, où il fut l¿un des plus grands cliniciens après Corvisart. Il devint doyen de la faculté de médecine de Paris, membre de l¿Académie de médecine (et président de cette Académie en 1862), membre de l¿Académie des sciences. Balzac s¿inspira de Bouillaud pour son personnage du Docteur Bianchon. Bouillaud avait déjà fait paraître, quelques mois auparavant, dans Archives Générales de Médecine, un article préliminaire intitulé « Recherches cliniques propres à démontrer que la perte de la parole correspond à la lésion des lobules antérieurs du cerveau, et à confirmer l¿opinion de Gall, sur le siège du langage articulé ». (Garrison & Morton, 4618) Bouillaud distingue deux types d¿aphasie (expressive et amnésique). Il est le premier à assigner aux lobes frontaux le siège du langage articulé, et sera malheureusement le seul à défendre cette idée jusqu¿à la publication de Broca en 1861. Sur la base de plusieurs observations anatomo-cliniques, Bouillaud formule clairement ce que l¿on appellera la « double dissociation », principe qui sera à la base de la neuropsychologie. Ces conclusions suscitèrent l¿opposition d¿Andral et de Flourens. Les contemporains de Bouillaud étaient dans l¿ensemble réticents à accepter cette théorie, gardant sans doute en souvenir les concepts de la phrénologie (d¿autant plus que Bouillaud était membre fondateur de la Société phrénologique).

        Trabalhos medicos offerecidos a Magestade do Senhor D. Pedro I, Imperador do Brasil?.

      Rio de Janeiro, Typographia Nacional, (1825). - Small woodcut vignettes on title-page and divisional titles. (4 ll.), 74, (1 blank l.), 122 pp., (1 l. errata). 4°, disbound, text block edges sprinkled blue-green. In very good condition. ---- FIRST and ONLY EDITION of this interesting collection of works by one of Brazil's foremost physicians. The first work, with divisional title and separate pagination, is @Memoria sobre algumas enfermidades do Rio de Janeiro, e mui particularmente sobre o abuso geral, e pernicioso effeito da applicação da preciosa casca peruviana, ou quina. In it Bomtempo draws upon his seven years' experience treating tropical fevers in Angola to propose new treatments for a summer fever (complicated by hepatitis) and a winter fever then endemic in Brazil, and criticizes the excessive use of quinine. The other works, each with a divisional title but paginated continuously, are @Plano ou regulamento interino, para os exercicios da Academia Medico-Cirurugica do Rio de Janeiro, feito, e dirigido a Secretaria d'Estado dos Negocios do Reino, por officio de 14 de Agosto de 1820 (proposals for improving the Academy's medical school); @Regulamento interino para a fisicatura mor do Imperio do Brasil (proposals for improving government oversight of the medical and pharmaceutical professions, and public health); and @Esboço de hum systema de medicina pratica, pelo qual em qualquer parte do globo se podem curar todas as molestias irritativas, com hum só, e simples remedio; applicação e formação d'este . . . . These works sometimes appear on the market separately, but were meant to be bound together. Despite a statement by Innocêncio to the contrary, we are virtually certain there was only one printing.A native of Lisbon, Bomtempo (1774-1843) received his medical training at the University of Coimbra. In 1798 he was appointed @physico-mór of Angola, and in 1808 left for Brazil, where he became senior physician to D. Pedro I. Later he served as director of the Academia Médico-Cirúrgica in Rio de Janeiro. His writings include @Compendios de materia medica (Rio de Janeiro, 1814), the first materia medica printed in Brazil, and @Compendios de medicina pratica (Rio de Janeiro, 1815), which Guerra termed "the most important medical book of colonial Brazil."---- Sacramento Blake V, 39: calling for 204 pp., and noting that it is a reprint of the @Memoria, Plano and @Esboço.

        Travels through Russia, Siberia, Poland, Austria, Saxony, Prussia, Hanover, &c. &c. Undertaken during the Years 1822, 1823, and, 1824, while suffering from Total Blindness, and comprising an Account of the Author being conducted a State Prisoner from the Eastern Parts of Siberia. Second Edition.

      London: Geo. B. Whittaker, 1825 - Octavo (213 × 132 mm) Contemporary sage green, straight-grained morocco by Bentley of Poland Street, red morocco label, flat bands gilt tooled, compartments with repeated arabesque design in blind, French fillet gilt panels to the boards, small floral corner-tools, foliate edge-roll, marbled edges and endpapers. Spine slightly sunned, tail-cap repaired, short split to tail of the upper joint, light toning, mild off-set from the plates, a very good copy. Volume I with stipple-engraved portrait frontispiece, volume II with steel-engraved frontispiece, and 4 extremely lively lithographic plates after Gauci Jnr to each. Second edition in the same year as the first. In 1798, Holman, aged just 12, joined the Navy as a first class volunteer, and served until 1810, when he was invalided out with severe rheumatism, shortly afterwards becoming totally blind. He was made a naval knight of Windsor, but found the regime too restrictive and "managed to convince the authorities that the terms of the endowment allowed leave of absence both for study (he attended lectures of the University of Edinburgh from 1813 to 1818) and for travel to recruit his health"(ODNB). Over the next 20 years or so, embarked on the series of travels - eventually more or less completing a circuit of the globe "an achievement he resolved on when he first went to sea" - that were the origin of his soubriquet, 'The Blind Traveller.' The present account is that of his trip to Russia in 1822-4. Arriving in St. Petersburg "he proceeded to Moscow and Novgorod, and then, without official permission and with no knowledge of the language, across Siberia to Irkutsk." (Howgego) Here he was arrested as a spy, and "escorted to Moscow in chains and held for eighteen months" before he was accompanied to the Polish border to make his way back to England. His accounts were were attacked at the time as the products of imagination rather than of experience, and Holman's being blind may have seemed to lend substance to the accusations. However, one who knew him well described his memory as "indelible," and he did record aides mémoires for himself using the noctograph, a device with which he is portrayed in the frontispiece. An excellent copy of an uncommon account of Russia by the man described in a recent biography as 'the world's greatest traveller.' Howgego, II, H31; Roberts, A Sense of the World (2009).

        Memoirs

      Henry Colburn, London 1825 - The first edition of the most famous set of diaries in the English language. Pepys began his journals in January 1660 and stopped writing in 1669 as his eyesight grew worse. He wrote the books in Shelton's shorthand which the diarist had probably learned while a student. It was first deciphered between 1819 and 1822 by John Smith, an undergraduate, and afterwards rector of Baldock. In 1825 half of the deciphered manuscript was edited by Richard, Lord Braybrooke and published as the first edition by Henry Colburn, in London. The set has two volumes: the first with xlii and 498 pp, plus a general index, xlix, and the second with 311pp. Large quarto. Handsome leather covered boards to both volumes, both rebacked sensitively and well with original burgundy labels, raised bands, and gilt motifs. Volume 1 has 8 plates, including portrait frontispiece, facsimile of Pepys's writing, and Pepys's family tree. Volume 2 has 5 plates, portraits, folding map, etc. There is some foxing to most of the pages with plates and their neighbouring pages, and some mirroring of plates to opposite pages. Apart from that, the text pages are very crisp and clean, with magnificently clear print. Pages have gilt edges, tops and bottoms. "A document of extraordinary interest, on account both of the light that its sincere narrative throws on the author's own lovable character, and of the vivid picture that it gives of contemporary everyday life, of the administration of the navy, and of the ways of the court" . One of the most important and revealing diaries in English, in a most attractive set. As with many nineteenth century and later editions, Pepys's franker memoirs have been discreetly censored.

        Divinity, or Discourses on The Being of God, The Divinity of Christ, The Personality and Divinity of The Holy Ghost, and on The Sacred Trinity - 2 vols - (1st Edition)

      WC Featherstone 1825 - WC Featherstone; 1825; Beautifully bound in marbled; quarter leather, covers in near immaculate condition. Spine is a black leather with gold embossed ridges - red, gilt lettered title and volume number sections. Some small scratches to the binding, but negligible. Barely any foxing on pages, (frontispiece engraving has 'mirrored' onto facing page on both volumes). These books have quite possibly never been read! The history is fascinating. The Rev'd Daly was born in Devon, near Tavistock n 4 March 1743, he was educated at the Exeter free grammar school and at Balliol College, Oxford, where he graduated B.A. On leaving the university he was ordained into the curacy of Moreton-Hampstead, Devonshire, then he became curate of Drewsteignton, and afterwards was appointed curate of Lustleigh, with a yearly wage of £40. In 1786 he published a System of Divinity, having been encouraged to bring out this work by a long list of subscribers, but as many of them neglected to pay their subscriptions, the actual receipts were far less than the expenses, and the author found himself over £100 out of pocket. Undaunted by difficulties, however, he determined to extend the work to twenty-six volumes, and being unable to risk a second loss he resolved to print the book himself. Being a clever mechanician he made a press of a peculiar construction, unlike ordinary printing-presses; then he bought some old types at a cheap rate; and in five months, he produced 40 copies of the first volume. He circulated twenty six of these specimen volumes by sending them to the universities of Oxford and Cambridge, the Royal Society, and the editors of several reviews. However, he was to be bitterly disappointed by the lukewarm response. Few of those to whom he presented the specimen volume even acknowledged its receipt. Davy sought in vain the patronage of three successive Bishops of Exeter ¿ Ross, Buller, and Courtenay ¿ and of Archbishop Moore and Bishop Porteus, but these prelates sent no help and even declined to accept a dedication from him. Bishop Buller would not even look at the specimen volume. In spite of these discouragements Davy, having 14 copies remaining, started again and printed 14 copies of the other 25 volumes, each containing about five hundred pages, which herculean task he completed in 1807. Copies of this extremely curious * System of Divinity * (26 vols. Lustleigh, 1795-1807, 8vo) are preserved in the Bodleian Library at Oxford, the Cambridge University Library, the London Institution, and the Cathedral Library, Exeter. The copy in the British Museum, which is regarded as one of the most interesting typographical curiosities in the national collection, was presented by Sir Robert Harry Inglis, M.P., one of the trustees, who has prefixed to the first volume a long letter addressed to Panizzi, giving an account of the author and of the singular circumstances connected with the production of the book, he expresses his opinion that it is 'the most remarkable work of English labour; perhaps, indeed, I might say unparalleled in any age or country, as an effort of the combined skill, industry, and perseverance of one man, un- daunted by age, poverty, and forty of neglect.' . In the latter part of his life Davy resided at Willmead,a small farm belonging to his son, but he continued to hold the curacy of Lustleigh. Having made considerable additions to these discourses, a neat edition of them was published in 1825 at Exeter in 2 vols. (as seen here) Pelham, bishop of Exeter, now tardily recognised the authors merits, and in December 1825 presented Davy, then in his eighty-third year, to the vicarage of Winkleigh, Devonshire. He held the benefice only about five months, and, dying on 13 June 1826, was buried in the chancel of Winkleigh church. . AN INCREDIBLE OPPORTUNITY TO COLLECT A VERY, VERY RARE SET OF THESE BOOKS.

First edition. Armstrong's "great work ... This was the first Gaelic dictionary published, as there previously existed only vocabularies of the language like those of Shaw and others. It is a most meritorious work, the affinities of the Celtic words being traced in most of the languages of ancient and modern times. To it is prefixed a Gaelic grammar, and there is a short historical appendix of ancient names, deduced from the authority of Ossian and other poets. Armstrong's dictionary will always be prized by Gaelic scholars, but it was partially eclipsed, three years after its appearance, by the publication of the still more comprehensive ‘Dictionarium Scoto-Celticum,’ compiled under the direction of the Highland Society of Scotland (2 vols. 4to, 1828). Mr. Armstrong sank his small fortune in the publication of his three-guinea quarto, and in a pecuniary sense he was a considerable loser by its publication" - DNB.

        Ristretto di Dir.o Nat.e privato e pubblico. Criminale Filosofico - e Crim.e Positivo. Speroni G.B. Anno 1825-26.

      - Cm. 27,5, cc. 186. Solida ed elegante legatura coeva in mezza pelle, dorso liscio con fregi e titoli in oro su tassello. Ottima conservazione ed in grafia ben leggibile. Si tratta di un manoscritto ad uso dello studente G.B. Speroni che riporta l'intero corso svolto all'università di Pavia nell'anno accademico 1825-26. Nonostante il nome del professore non appaia mai scritto nel volume, si tratta sicuramente di Giulio Bellardi Granelli che tenne la cattedra pavese dal 1818 al 1846 e divenne Rettore nel 1820. Il magistero di quest'ultimo si caratterizza in due punti principali: il primo, distinto in privato e pubblico, insegnato a partire dal 1819 verte sul Diritto privato e naturale di Zeiller da poco tradotto in italiano; Il secondo è suddiviso in un'esposizione di parte generale, cui segue lo studio dei delitti e delle pene. E' interessante notare come in questo periodo l'insegnamento universitario pavese dovesse seguire le direttive dell'Aulica Commissione di Vienna la quale, a proposito della cattedra di Diritto Naturale, così si esprime: "il diritto naturale preso in senso generale dividesi nel diritto naturale privato e diritto naturale pubblico, quest'ultimo comprende il diritto pubblico interno, ed il diritto pubblico esterno, ossia il diritto delle genti. Il Professore del diritto naturale ha da incominciare le sue lezioni con una introduzione enciclopedica allo studio legale e politico, dovendo pure a suo luogo esporre i casi di maggior rilievo ne' quali il diritto positivo Europeo differisce dal naturale. La cattedra di 'diritto naturale e criminale' abbraccia pertanto «la introduzione enciclopedica allo studio politico legale, il diritto naturale privato e pubblico e il diritto criminale".

        Deuxiéme Lettre d'un Rabbin Converti, aux Israélites ses Frères, sur les Motifs de sa Conversion. Les Prophéties Expliquées par les Traditions de la Synagogue

      Paris, l'Auteur, a la Sorbonne; au bureau de la Société Catholique des bons livres, et aux principales librairies eccléslastiques, (1825)-1827.. Crown octavo. Pp. iii, (i blank), 334. Half-title, Author's signature on verso. Text diagram. Footnotes, errata. Hardcover, contemporary half cloth and marbled boards, manuscript shelf-label to spine. Small institutional label tipped-in, small stamps. In a very fine fine condition (sporadic foxing). Excellent copy, practically unused. ~ First edition. SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR ?P. L. B. Drach? in ink on verso of half-title (?Propriété de l'Éditeur?). Marrano Paul Louis Bernard Drach (David), (1791, Strasburg - 1868, Rome), a Talmudic scholar, Grand-Rabbi, a well-known converted Jew. In 1823 he renounced Judaism in the presence of Archbishop Quélen, was baptized, and received his first Holy Communion and the Sacrament of Confirmation. In 1827 appointed librarian of the Propaganda in Rome, an office he held until his death. Rosenthal, in his ?Convertitenbilder? writes: ?The conversion of this learned Jew is undoubtedly one of the most important conversions effected by the grace of God during this century in France. It became the source of salvation to many of his coreligionists.? Of Drach's numerous writings, ?Lettres d'un rabbin converti aux Israélites, ses frères? is the most important. Highly anti-Semitic, it incriminates the Jews as practicioners of ritual murder. ?The zeal of these Rabbis goes as far as dedicating to death all those who follow the doctrine of the Trinity, and consequently all Christian Israelites,? Drach writes. In his ?Harmonie entre l'église et la synagogue? (Paris, 1844) he even asserts that the Jews of Damascus had been responsible for the ritual murder of the Capuchin Fr. Thomas in 1840, and that their guilt had been established beyond doubt. Exceedingly scarce. OCLC records 2 copies only.

Hewitt from maps drawn by James Wyld (the Elder), one of the foremost geographers of his time, with the title royal geographer, who introduced lithography to England. Containing very detailed maps of the world with an emphasis on Europe, but with several important maps showing the Americas and Australia. Most of the maps have a small vignette illustrating a feature of the region. This later edition has been revised and updated with 3 new maps: "Van Dieman's Land" [Tasmania], "New South Wales," and "Ross, Parry, and Franklin's Discoveries in the Arctic Circle." The maps showing America are Map XXXVII "America," which shows both North and South America with the vignette "Cascade of Regla, Near Mexico"; Map XXXVIII "North America," with the vignette "Ft. Niagara from the British Light House"; and Map XXXIX "United States," with the vignette "The Falls of Niagara," all showing the pre-Louisiana Purchase border at the Mississippi River. To the west of the United States, we see California (present-day Baja California), New California (with the towns of P. Diego, S. Clemente, Ft. St. Francisco, and C. Mendocino), Texas, S. Antonio, Laredo, New Madrid, and N. Orleans. "W. Florida" and "E. Florida" are portrayed as south of the United States, with no part of the U.S. bordering the Gulf of Mexico.

        Three Works: a Watercolour, an Ink and a Pencil Sketch of Tangier].

      1825 - Ca. 1825. Each on separate album leaves, one double-page. Image sizes 55x21 cm (21 ½ x 8 ¼ in); 25,5x20 cm (10x8 in); 28x19,5 cm (11 x 7 ¾ in). All captioned in ink with the same hand on verso. This group is in very good condition. The group includes a watercolour panoramic view of Tangier Bay captioned "# 15 & 16. Two views of the point of Malabat. Tanjir Bay. The Light House and Isla at Tarifa. The bank of sand which unites the Isla to the main land" (with the second description regarding view # 16 not present here). The view represents Cape Malabata (6 miles east of Tangier) facing the Strait of Gibraltar; the mentioned lighthouse still exists. The Isla de Tarifa (modern La Isla de las Palomas) is the island opposite the town of Tarifa at the southern end of the Punta de Tarifa, the southern most point of the Iberian Peninsula. The second view of Tangier Bay is in pencil and captioned "The Castle and port of the Fortifications of Tanjirs taken from the harbour." There is also a smaller monochrome brownish watercolour and ink sketch captioned "A View from the top of the British Vice Consul¿s House in Tetuan" and dated "Jan. [?]th 1825." Tetouan is a city in northern Morocco, one of the two major ports of Morocco on the Mediterranean Sea. It lies a few miles south of the Strait of Gibraltar, and about 40 mi (60 km) east of Tangier. Historical Text Archive on-line notes that in 1825 the post of British vice-consul in Tetuan was held by a Moroccan Jew Salvador D. Hassan, who also acted as Consul of Portugal and Italy. Estcourt "purchased a commission as ensign in the 44th foot on 13 July 1820, exchanging on 7 June 1821 into the 43rd foot (Monmouthshire light infantry) before purchasing promotion to lieutenant (9 December 1824) and captain (5 November 1825). Estcourt served with the regiment, which formed part of Lieutenant-General Sir William Clinton's division sent to garrison towns in Portugal (1826-7) during disruption over the succession to the throne. He appears then to have returned with the 43rd to Gibraltar, before sailing for Plymouth and, in 1832, Ireland. From January 1835 until June 1837, he was second in command to Colonel F. R. Chesney during his expedition to the Euphrates valley, which sought to prove that the river was navigable from within overland reach of the Mediterranean to its mouth on the Persian Gulf, thus shortening the journey to India. Despite a torrid period, during which one steamer was wrecked and twenty lives lost at Basrah on 31 August 1836, Estcourt produced a detailed report for Chesney, anticipating 'no difficulties' in passage during the 'season of high water', provided that accurate knowledge of the deep channel and a vessel of suitable length were acquired. He was less sure about the 'low season', owing to lack of information, though he was confident that local Arabs would not be hostile, once they became used to the steamers" (Oxford DNB). This collection was obviously made from Estcourt first posting in Gibraltar.
