        Une lettre manuscrite de Deleuze sur le magnétisme animal adressée au Journal des Débats MANUSCRIT

      Trois pages manuscrites 70 lignes manuscrites circa. Il s'agit d'une lettre très importante dans l'histoire des débats suscités par le magnétisme. Deleuze commence à s'interroger sur l'inexactitude flagrante de deux articles parus le 2 et 7 mai 1826 dans le Journal des Débats et qui le vise personnellement. On y dit qu'il se trompe depuis 40 ans et que le magnétisme constitue un danger pour les bonnes meurs. Ce à quoi Deleuze réponds qu'il est difficile pour un homme de magnétiser une femme ! Il renvoie ensuite à un livre paru l'année précédente - et qui avait fait l'objet d'un compte rendu dans le Journal des Débats - ou il proscrivait de magnétiser une personne du sexe opposé sauf s'il s'agit du père ou du mari ! (curieux miroir inversé de la doctrine freudienne). Il continue ensuite - toujours à rebours de la psychanalyse - à se plaindre de la fausseté de l'article en finit par ces assertions "il n'est pas vrai que le magnétisme est plus facile entre personnes de sexe opposées", "il n'est pas vrai que le magnétisme agisse plus souvent et mieux avec des jeunes personnes qu'avec des personnes agées .", "il n'est pas vrai que le somnambulisme se montre plus souvent chez les femmes que chez les hommes", °°°°° - - - Joseph Philippe François Deleuze est un naturaliste français, né en 1753 à Sisteron et mort le 31 octobre 1835 à Paris. Il étudie à Paris et devient naturaliste-assistant au Muséum national d'histoire naturelle en 1795. Il collabore avec Antoine Laurent de Jussieu (1748-1836). Aide-naturaliste, puis bibliothécaire du Muséum d'histoire naturelle, il est surtout connu pour être un partisan de la théorie du magnétisme animal et suggère que l'Académie des sciences l'étudie Très bon couverture souple Edition originale Signé par l'auteur

        Narrative of Travels and Discoveries in Northern and central Africa in the Years 1822, 1823, and 1824. Extending across the Great Desert to the Tenth Degree of Northern Latitude, and from Kouka in Bornou, to Sackatoo, the Capital of the Fellatah Empi

      London: John Murray, 1826. First Edition. Hardcover. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall Very Good. Two volumes in one. lxvii, 335; 269 pp, complete with 38 engraved plates (1 colored) and maps (1 folding), 6 wood-engraved vignettes in the text. Rebound in red buckram with leather spine label, date erroneously printed as 1836 at foot. Occasional minor foxing and offsetting, one closed tear to map.In hopes of tracing the course of the Niger River, Denham's expedition crossed the desert along the long-established Sahara trade route to the kingdom of Bornu (later Nigeria), a route littered with the skeletons of thousands of slaves abandoned there over the centuries. They sighted Lake Chad and reached the capital of Bornu, where they were welcomed by a spectacular array of some five thousand horsemen sent by the Muslim prophet who ruled Bornu in the king's name. Though delighted to meet them, he refused to let them continue their explorations, lest they meet some misadventure for which he would be blamed. Ultimately, the expedition returned to England having failed to find the Niger, but having opened much of north central Africa to European knowledge. Written in a lively style, and embellished with engravings of Denham's own sketches, this account became one of the classics of its genre (DNB). Denham was later appointed lieutenant-governor of the colony of Sierra Leone, where he died of the African fever in 1828.

Issued in three volumes: two of text and one of plates this is the PLATE VOLUME ONLY. Full contemporary red crushed calf, ruled and titled in gilt. 63 plates, mostly folding. Darkening to the boards, considerable rubbing to the joints, foxing, mostly to the margins of the plates, still a sound, good copy. Mathematician Joseph Ray's copy, with his ownership signature: "Joseph Ray, M.D. Woodward High School, Cincinnati, (date indecipherable). 2 volumes & plates, $15.25." Ray was a professor of mathematics and wrote several books on the subject, beginning in 1834 with An Introduction to Ray's Eclectic Arithmetic, the first of a series of six textbooks which became the most popular and widely used American mathematics textbooks of the Nineteenth Century. They also formed the basis for Ray's Mathematical Series of textbooks. As late as 1913, annual sales exceeded a quarter of a million copies a year, and total sales of the arithmetic books alone are estimated at 120 million copies. The success of Ray's Arithmetic series prompted his publisher to seek an author for a set of readers. They chose William Holmes McGuffey, who joined Ray on the faculty of Woodward College, and where he wrote the McGuffey Readers which surpassed even Ray's Arithmetics to become the most popular textbooks ever written. .

        De la paralysie consideree chez les alienes

      Bailliere Paris: Bailliere, 1826. 1st edition. Calmeil, Louis Florentin (1798-1895). De la paralysie consideree chez les alienes, recherches faites dans le service de feu M. Royer-Collard et de M. Esquirol. 8vo. [4] ii, 446pp. Paris and London: J.-B. Bailliere, 1826. 198 x 122 mm. Modern quarter morocco, marbled boards in period style. Light browning, but very good. One signature misbound. First Edition. Garrison-Morton 4797. Calmeil was a pupil of the French psychiatrist Esquirol. His treatise contains the classic description of general paralysis of the insane, along with an attempt to correlate the pathology of the disease with its clinical manifestations. However, Calmeil did not recognize that general paralysis was a separate disease entity (syphilis) and not simply a complication of mental illness. Norman 389. Zilboorg & Henry, p. 529. 305

South and John Herschel jointly produced a catalogue of 380 double stars in 1824, reobserving many of the double stars that had been discovered by William Herschel. South then continued and observed another 458 double stars over the following year and it is this massive catalogue that is here presented. He won the Copley Medal in 1826 and the Gold Medal of the Royal Astronomical Society in that same year. He was knighted in 1831. Craters on Mars and the Moon are named in his honour. Starting around 1826, James South made plans for a new, larger telescope, an equatorially mounted achromatic refractor (a telescope with a lens) in a new observatory. He bought a 12-inch aperture lens from Cauchoix in Paris for about £1000, large enough to be the biggest achromatic object lens in the world at the time.

Marmorierter Kalblederband der Zeit mit rotem goldgeprägtem Rückenschild, Deckelfiletierung mit Blättermotiven, Rücken- und Stehkantenvergoldung. Borba de Moraes I:139. - Sabin 100816. - Hill 231. - Erste Ausgabe. - Von Maria Graham, der späteren Maria Callcott, aus den Bordbüchern von Byron, den Aufzeichnungen des Kaplans Rowland Bloxham und den naturwissenschaftlichen Unterlagen von Andrew Bloxham zusammengestellter Reisebericht nach Hawaii. - Anlass der Reise war der tragische Tod des hawaiianischen Königs Kamehameha II und seiner Frau Kamamal, die während eines Staatsbesuches in London an Masern erkrankten und, ohne Abwehrkräfte, kurze Zeit darauf verstarben. Auf Geheiss der englischen Regierung wurden die sterblichen Überreste nach Hawaii überführt. Gleichzeitig erteilte die Regierung den Auftrag für einen wissenschaftlichen Bericht über das, seit der Entdeckung durch James Cook und nach dessen Tode 1779, nur wenig beschriebene, von Cook als Sandwich-Inseln bezeichnetes Archipel. John Murray beauftragte Maria Graham, eine bereits mit mehreren Büchern erfolgreiche Reiseautorin. Maria Graham legte eine kurze Geschichte der Hawaiischen Inseln vor, beschrieb die tragischen Ereignisse in London sowie, im umfangreichsten Teil des Werkes, die verschiedenen Inseln, ihre Bevölkerung, aber auch die geologischen und vulkanologischen Besonderheiten. - Das gefaltete Frontispiz zeigt den Krater des Vulkans Peli, die Tafeln verschiedene Orte Hawaiis. - Titelblatt mit getilgtem Stempel. - Fleckenloses, breitrandiges Exemplar in gutem Einband der Zeit. - First edition. Account of an expedition compiled by Maria Graham, later called Maria Callcott, from Byron's logbooks, the chaplain Rowland Bloxham's descriptions and the scientific documents of Andrew Bloxham. The reason of this expedition was the tragic deaths of the Hawaiian King Kamehameha II and of his wife Kamamal, who fell ill with mumps during an official stay in London and died shortly after. At the behest of the English government, the remains of both were to be taken back to Hawaii. At the same time, the government commissioned a scientific report of the archipelago James Cook called Sandwich Islands and which had little been described since James Cook's discovery and death in 1779. Maria Graham, an already well-known writer of travels, was mandated by John Murray. Maria Graham wrote a short history of the Hawaiian Islands, described the tragic event in London and depicted, in the most important part of her book, the different islands, their population as well as their geological and vulcanologic particularities. The fold out frontispiece shows the crater of the great volcano of Peli, and the plates show different places in Hawaii. Title-page with effaced stamp. Immaculate copy with large margins with nice contemporary binding. [7 Warenabbildungen bei antiquariat.de]

Seine Kritik an der Sklavenhaltung, am Grossgrundbesitz und am Ausbau der Monokultur des Zuckerrohranbaus ist bis heute ein exemplarischer Text einer politisch-oekonomischen Analyse. - Sehr breitrandiges, unbeschnittenes und fleckenloses Exemplar. - Eines der seltensten Titel des "zweiten Entdeckers Amerikas". - First edition. Enlarged and completed monograph by Humbold on Cuba on the basis of his 'Reisen in die Aequinoctial-Gegenden des Neuen Kontinentes' with a supplement (volume 2: p. 93 and following) on Venezuela and Colombia. - Humboldt was harshly attacked by the Cuban upper class for his description of the history and for his analysis of the economic and social circumstances of Cuba. His criticism of the slavery, the large-scale landed property and the development of the sugar cane monoculture is still considered today as an example of a political-economic analysis.

      Philadelphia, 1826.

From the Svenska Läkaresällskapets Bibliotek, with the library's 19th century stamp on the title and front cover and library label inside front cover.(1) First Edition of the first original study of acupuncture published in North America, and one of the earliest American publications on the alleviation of pain. Franklin Bache, great-grandson of Benjamin Franklin, was the first American to perform original research on acupuncture. In 1825 Bache had issued his translation of J. Morand's Mémoire sur l'acupuncture (1825) under the title Memoir on Acupuncturation; this was the first book on acupuncture to be published in America (see Garrison-Morton 6374.15). The same year, Bache conducted his own experimental study of acupuncture, which he recorded in the present paper."As assistant physician at the state penitentiary in Philadelphia, Bache determined in 1825 to test acupuncture on the prisoners whom he was called upon to serve. With the aid of a colleague, he used the needles to treat 12 different prisoners who were suffering from highly painful afflictions: three with muscular rheumatism, four with 'chronic pains,' three with neuralgia, and two with ophthalmia. He also used acupuncture among the prisoners in relieving several lesser pains, including a headache accompanying bilious fever, the head pain of an epileptic, an elastic tumor near the elbow joint, and a dull pain caused by pulmonic inflammation."Bache reported varying successes. In summarizing 17 subsequent cases, some of which were not among the prisoners, he noted that seven "were completely cured, seven considerably relieved, and in the remaining three cases, the remedy produced no effect." "Over all, Bache was convinced that the measure offered great promise for "removing and mitigating pain." He concluded that it could well be 'a proper remedy in almost all diseases, whose prominent symptom is pain'" (Cassedy, pp. 894-895).Bache was one of the very few American physicians in the early nineteenth century to adopt acupuncture as a method of pain relief, despite the fact that the practice was enjoying a considerable vogue in Europe at the time. This volume of the North American Medical and Surgical Journal includes several brief abstracts from European journals on the uses of acupuncture; see pp. 225-227 and 448-449.(2) First English Translation of Ten Rhyne's aphorisms on acupuncture, originally included in his Dissertatio de arthritide (1683; see Garrison-Morton 6374.10). Ten Rhyne's "De acupuntura" represents the first detailed description of acupuncture published in the West. The anonymous translators added a brief historical introduction and a copy of Ten Rhyne's illustration of an acupuncture needle and hammer.(3) Hewson's article on ecthyma (a skin infection similar to impetigo) is remarkable for its hand-colored plates, which are among the earliest to appear in an American medical periodical. Volume 1 of the North American Medical and Surgical Journal is very rare on the market. This is the first copy we have handled in 40 years of trading. Nor have we ever heard of an offprint of Bache's paper.

        THE ENGLISH PORTION OF THE LIBRARY OF THE VEN. FRANCIS WRANGHAM; ARCHDEACON OF CLEVELAND. 'Only Seventy Copies - Unpublished.'

      Malton: Printed by R. Smitherson ... in Yorkersgate, 1826. . 8vo in 4s, (222x140mm), [10],646p. 2 wood-engravings in the text (attributed by Hugo to Thomas Bewick). A handsome, untrimmed and partly unopened copy with some very slight spotting; a later engraving of Hunmanby Church laid down on the verso of the front free endleaf. Bound in 20th century canvas retaining the earlier leather lettering piece on the backstrip and the earlier marbled paper endleaves. A pencilled note on the front free verso states 'Original boards, recovered.' (Sadleir 63) Extremely rare. 'Wrangham was not a rich man. Yet he contrived to indulge his passion for books, to secure what he wanted, and to revel in its possession. This he did by going after his own taste, and only following the taste of the day when it happened to coincide with his own. The result was that he rescued hundreds of interesting books from oblivion - many at very low cost - and, by studying and cataloguing them, registered their interest for always. No greater service than this can be rendered by a collector to his age and to posterity ... Wrangham's collecting-methods may have seemed trivial and whimsical at the time, but the spirit of the future was in him.' (Michael Sadleir, Archdeacon Francis Wrangham p49) The catalogue is more than a mere listing of his collection. It is extensively annotated by him with what are often quite lengthy comments on the contents of his books, their value as works of scholarship, and other points of interest to, and opinions of, Wrangham. It is indeed an insight into the man, the breadth of his learning, and his opinions.

        On a Method of Expressing by Signs the Action of Machinery.London: W. Nicol, 1826. First edition.

      The very rare pre-publication offprint issue of "Babbage's first publication of his system of mechanical notation that enabled him to describe the logic and operation of his machines on paper as they would be fabricated in metal." (Norman). <br/><br/> "Babbage later stated that 'Without the aid of this language I could not have invented the Analytical Engine; nor do I believe that any machinery of equal complexity can ever be contrived without the assistance of that or some other equivalent language. The Difference Engine No. 2 ... is entirely described by its aid' (Babbage, Passages from the Life of a Philosopher, p.104) <br/><br/> "Babbage considered his mechanical notation system to be one of his finest inventions, and thought it should be widely implemented. It was a source of frustration to him that no other machine designer adopted it (probably because no other engineer during Babbage's time attempted to build machines as logically and mechanically complex as Babbage's). More than one hundred years later, in the 1930s, when developments in logic were applied to switching systems in the earliest efforts to develop electromechanical calculators, Claude Shannon demonstrated that Boolean algebra could be applied to the same types of problems for which Babbage had designed his mechanical notation system." (Norman).<br/><br/> "While making designs for the Difference Engine, Babbage found great difficulty in ascertaining from ordinary drawings - plans and elevations - the state of rest or motion of individual parts as computation proceeded: that is to say the following in detail succeeding stages of a machine's action. This led him to develop a mechanical notation which provided a systematic method for labeling parts of a machine, classifying each part as fixed or moveable; a formal method for indicating the relative motions of the several parts which was easy to follow; and means for relating notations and drawings so that they might illustrate and explain each other. As the calculating engines developed the notation became a powerful but complex formal tool. Although its scope was much wider than logical systems, the mechanical notation was the most powerful formal method for describing switching systems until Boolean algebra was applied to the problem in the middle of the twentieth century. In its mature form the mechanical notation was to comprise three main components; a systematic method for preparing and labeling complex mechanical drawings; timing diagrams; and logic diagrams, which show the general flow of control." (Hyman). <br/><br/> Hook & Norman, Origins of Cyberspace, no. 37 (ordinary journal issue, i.e., not the offprint as here); Hyman, Charles Babbage: Pioneer of the Computer, p.58..
