Magnifique exemplaire à grandes marges non rognées. Reliure absolument parfaite, fleurs de coins - perfect copy like new, no foxing ---- "THE REFORMER AND PIONEER PSYCHIATRIST OF BELGIUM". (Zilboord p. 468) ---- "Nommé médecin-chef des établissements d'aliénés de Gand en 1828, Joseph GUISLAIN fait à la fois oeuvre de théoricien et de réformateur. Théoricien, il demeure très proche d'Esquirol et ne sera pazs sans influence sur Griesinger et sur Morel. L'essentiel de ses idées est contenu dans le Traité des phrénopathies (1833), terme qu'il substitue à celui trop vague de folie. Il voit dans la douleur morale ou phrénalgie la cause essentielle de toute maladie mentale, les différents symptômes étant liés à l'organisation physique et intellectuelle préalable du malade et propose une nosologie en six classes où l'on voit pour la première fois apparaître une tentative d'isolement des psychoses délirantes primitives, concept qui devait connaître un succès croissant dans la seconde moitié du siècle. Réformateur des structures hospitalières, d'un naturel bon et expansif selon Morel qui l'a connu en 1845, Joseph GUISLAIN a lutté toute sa vie pour l'amélioration du sort des aliénés, proposant un plan d'organisation des asiles complétés par de petites colonies familiales et par des exploitations agricoles destinées à faciliter la rééducation morale et physique progressive des malades".

VI Delle Sostituzioni in generale, Indice dei capotoli contenuti in questo secondo tomo, Orazione recitata..., Riflessioni ?., . Seconda edizione di quest'opera importantissima in quanto latrice di principi architettonici innovativi sviluppati dal "Socrate architetto" padre Lodoli e portati alla pubblica conoscenza dai suoi discepoli; analogamente quanto fecero Platone e Senofonte con il loro maestro., così fece Algarotti nelle sue opere, su richiesta di Andrea Memmo, ma l'esposizione fu parziale e senza convinzione, non volendo lui mettersi in cattiva luce davanti al pubblico contemporaneo esponendo idee così rivoluzionarie. Andrea Memmo non soddisfatto dell'opera del suo amico si accinse egli stesso a dare un'esposizione più completa e precisa dei pensieri di padre Lodoli. Egli pubblicò, però, solo la prima parte (In Roma : nella stamperia Pagliarini, 1786) per dare il tempo al pubblico di digerire queste nuove nozioni. "Il perché a buon diritto vuolsi riconoscere l'eccellentissimo cav. Memmo per autore anche del primo libro da lui pubblicato in Roma, quando n'era ambasciatore presso la santa Sede; e da lui medesimo poscia arricchito di postille; né vuolsi che la sua stessa ammirabile modestia nuocia punto alla gloria di un merito cotanto insigne. Per questo avvertimento importantissimo, che noi facciamo ai lettori, si è cangiato il frontispizio delle due prime distribuzioni?" dall'"avvertimento" del TOMO 2. Alla fine del secondo tomo sono stati aggiunti due discorsi letti all'Accedemia di Belle Arti a Venezia nel 1787, il primo di Pietro Zaguri di critica , il secondo di Andrea Memmo in difesa dell'opera appena pubblicata. Carlo Lodoli (1690 ? 27 ottobre 1761) è stato un religioso e architetto italiano, noto anche per la sua attività di docente. La sua opera anticipò il concetto moderno di funzionalismo. È a volte chiamato il "Socrate" dell'architettura poiché tutti i suoi scritti sono andati perduti e le sue teorie sono note solo attraverso quanto riportato dai suoi allievi e da altri autori. Era padre francescano del convento di San Francesco della Vigna di Venezia. Girolamo Zanetti afferma che Lodoli impiegò venti anni a terminare la stesura del suo trattato sull'architettura, ma si rifiutò di pubblicarlo. Francesco Algarotti cercò da parte sua di rendere noto il pensiero di Lodoli nella propria opera Saggio sopra l'architettura (1757), anche se in una forma un po' attenuata, enfatizzando l'imitazione piuttosto che il razionalismo anti-barocco di Lodoli. Fu Andrea Memmo che tentò di rendere giustizia alle teorie di Lodoli, nella sua opera Elementi d'architettura lodoliana (1786); dell'anno successivo è la prima edizione dell'unico libro che porti il nome di Lodoli, Apologhi immaginati (1787): una raccolta di detti e di racconti, spesso paradossali, narrati ai suoi amici e ai suoi allievi. Tra il 1739 e il 1751 Lodoli ebbe l'incarico di Padre Generale Commissario di Terra Santa a Venezia. Qui si dedicò al restauro dell'ospizio per i pellegrini annesso al monastero (1739?43). Questo fu il suo unico lavoro pratico. Memmo Andrea (1729-1793): Patrizio veneziano. Fu Bailo a Costantinopoli, Senatore e Procuratore di San Marco. Fu discepolo del padre C.Lodoli, del quale divulgo le idee sull'architettura.

Three quarter calf over boards, lower corners rubbed with some loss, upper corners and spine ends rubbed, some surface wear to leather in places, spine with gilt decoration and contrasting spine labels bearing gilt titles, some spotting to prelims but text clean and bright. [PLATES Volume, William Annan, nd.] 4to, three quarter calf over marbled boards, loss of leather from top and bottom inch and half of spine, joints started and weak, boards rubbed, corners bumped/rubbed, contains double page vignette, 14 double page plates detailing the construction of fortifications and 3 double page plates and 2 double page tables dealing with artillery, some foxing to plates, plates measure approx 510mm by 325mm , Capt. Hector Straith (later Major) was an instructor in artillery and fortification at the East India Company's military seminary and it was in this capacity that he wrote this work. At the time much of the most current ideas about fortification had been developed by a number of French military engineers and Straith's aim was to provide as much of this information as possible in a single work in English for the benefit of his students. Straith believed that both theoretical understanding and practical knowledge were vital if his students were to be able to oversee the construction of fortifications and their defence in the field. To this end he admits to offering somewhat simplified instructions on defilement, instructions he believed could be assimilated by his students in the time alloted to their teaching. , 8vo 8" - 9" tall, xxvii [ii] 409 [1] pp .

        Illustrations of the Botany and other branches of the Natural History of the Himalayan Mountains, and of the Flora of Cashmere

      London: printed by J.L. Cox & Sons for Wm. H. Allen & Co., [1833-]1839[- 1840]. 2 volumes in 1, small thick folio. (14 1/8 x 10 3/8 inches). Half- titles. Hand-coloured aquatint frontispiece view of the Himalayas by J. Clark after Lt.Col. R. Smith, 1 hand-coloured plate of a geological section of the Himalayas, 3 uncoloured lithographic plates of fossils, hand-coloured lithographed plan of the botanic garden at Saharanpore and 96 hand-coloured natural-history plates, drawn on stone by Maxim Gauci and others, coloured by John Clark[e] or Mr.Barclay, after Vishupersaud, Miss Drake, W. Saunders, Luchmun Sing, J.T. Hart and others, printed by Graf & Soret (comprising: 2 plates of mammals, 2 plates of birds, 2 plates of insects, and 90 botanical plates). Expertly bound to style in half dark green morocco over contemporary marbled paper covered boards, marbled endpapers, marbled edges. First edition of this "pioneering ecological study" (Rix) on the trees, shrubs and flowers of the Himalayan region of the Indian sub-continent, illustrated with delightful images after Vishnuperand: the greatest Indian botanical artist of his time. Born in Cawnpore the son of an officer in the service of the East India Company, John Forbes Royle joined the medical staff of the Bengal Army in Calcutta in 1819 or 1820. Three years later, in 1823, he was able to combine his medical and military duties with his love of botany when he was appointed superintendant of the botanical garden at Saharunpore. He carried out a thorough investigation of the properties of traditional plant-based Indian drugs, buying them in the bazaars, and in the present work (vol.I, pp.239- 240) he also recommends the establishment of cinchona (the basis for quinine) in India. He was one of the first to botanise in the Himalayas, and his position at Saharunpore allowed him to commission Vishnupersaud and others to produce an important and valuable collection of beautiful and highly accurate drawings of the specimens he found during his plant- hunting expeditions. The resulting collection also contained the first visual record of many species. In 1831, Forbes returned to England with his herbarium and collection of drawings, and the publication of the present work began with the publication of the first (of 11) parts in September 1833. The work progressed steadily until May 1836 (when the 9th part was published), but Forbes appointment as professor of materia medica at King's College, London, in 1837 seems to have delayed the appearance of the tenth part until February 1839, and the final eleventh part in March or April 1840. The majority of the plates are after Vishnupersaud (or Vishnu Prasad), "the most talented of the native Indian [botanical] artists" (Blunt). He was employed by many of the most important plant collectors and botanists of the time, including Nathaniel Wallich and Robert Wight, and unfortunately, he remains one of only a handful of early 19th-century Indian botanical artists whose names are known - this in itself is an indication of the high esteem in which his work was held by western botanists at the time. An examination of the large collection of his original drawings still held by the India Office Library and the Kew Herbarium confirms his reputation amongst his contemporaries. The transfer of the drawings onto stone was carried out by the greatest of the early lithographers of botanical subjects: the Maltese born Maxim Gauci, and, unusually, Forbes also gives the names of the colourists: Mr. Clarke (probably John Clark who coloured the plates in Wallich's Plantae Asiaticae) and Mr. Barclay BM(NH) IV,p.1758; Bradley Bibliography I,p.472; Great Flower Books (1990) p.134; Nissen BBI 1690, Massachsetts Horticultural Society Library p.272; M.Rix.

        Voyages Round the World; with selected sketches of voyages to the South Seas, North and South Pacific Oceans, China, etc....between 1792 and 1832

      New York: 1833. Octavo. 499pp. 5 plates (2 folding). Original green cloth- backed brown/grey paper covered-boards, printed paper label to spine (label chipped, neat repairs to spine), green cloth chemise, green cloth slipcase, brown morocco lettering-piece. First edition of a classic narrative of voyages to the Pacific. Fanning's adventurous life at sea began at a young age. A native of Connecticut, he set sail in 1792 for the South Seas in search of seal skins. During the following quarter century he made voyages around the world and to the Pacific, visiting Australia, south Georgia, Fiji, Tonga, and the Marquesas. Included in his work is a narrative of the first American naval exploring expedition to the southern hemisphere in 1829-30 by Benjamin Pendleton. "Fanning, who went to sea as a 14-year-old cabin boy in 1783, first sailed to the South Seas on a voyage for seal skins on the Betsey in May 1797. During the next 25 years he either captained or directed over 70 voyages to the Pacific and around the globe, personally visiting China, Australia, Fiji, and the Marquesas. In 1798 he discovered both Fanning and Palmyra Islands...the latter is officially a part of the city and county of Honolulu and is privately owned by a Honolulu family. In 1829 Fanning was instrumental in sending out an exploring expedition under the command of Captain Benjamin Pendleton and Nataniel Brown Palmer... It was Fanning's petition to Congress and largely his own personal efforts that led to the ... fitting out of the United States Exploring Expedition [i.e Wilkes Expedition]" (Forbes).

        Brick from Washington’s Headquarters in New York City

      Portion of a handmade yellow brick, oddly shaped, approximately 2” x 1” x 1”, housed in a 4" high, 1.75” square base, 19th century bottle sealed with a cork. From the John S. Reigart Collection of Historical American Relics. Inside bottle is label neatly penned by John S. Reigart: “Piece of / Yellow Brick / of / the Head Quarters / of / Washington, / Howe, / Arnold and / Andre. / No. 1 Broadway / New York City.” John S. Reigart was born in 1833 or 1834 in New York City where he resided for most of his life. By occupation, he was a bank clerk with very precise penmanship which is evident on his identification label. During the mid and late 19th century Reigart assembled a comprehensive collection of relics from every period of America’s history. He was clearly aware of the importance of provenance of all the pieces in his collection and included detailed documentation in the form of period ink script notes, most of which he attached to the actual artifacts. About ten years ago, Reigart’s collection was discovered in the estate of a deceased Connecticut book dealer.

        Els-Kwau-Ta-Waw: The Open Door

      E.C Biddle Philadelphia: E.C Biddle, 1833. unbound. very good. Lehman and Duval. Portrait. Lithograph with original hand coloring. Page measures 19.5" x 14". Beautiful portrait from the folio edition of McKenney and Hall's "History of the Indian Tribes of North America". As Superintendent of the Indian Trade Bureau, Thomas McKenney wanted to document the rapidly disappearing culture of the American natives. He activated the project, sponsored by the War Department, by commissioning writer James Hall and Charles Bird King, a renowned American portraitist. King painted the prominent Indians while they visited Washington D.C. as treaty delegates. Most of the original oil paintings were destroyed by fire in the Smithsonian Museum in 1865. These lithographs, published 1842-58, are all that remain and are still hailed as one of the best visual records of influential Native Americans of the nineteenth century. Els-Kwau-Ta-Waw, also known as Tenskwatawa, was the Shawnee Chief Tecumseh's brother. A self-proclaimed prophet, Tenskwatawa preached unification among his people. He was eventually exiled by his brother for trying to fight the Americans against Tecumseh's will. Overall toning and offsetting. Chips to lower and upper right corners. One piece in our collection of Native American prints.

        Hayne Hudjihini Eagle of Delight

      Philadelphia: Key & Biddle, 1833. Hand-coloured lithograph. In excellent condition. 11 1/2 x 8 inches. 18 7/8 x 13 1/4 inches. A fine image from McKenney and Hall's 'Indian Tribes of North America': `One of the most important [works] ever published on the American Indians' (Field),` a landmark in American culture' (Horan) and an invaluable contemporary record of a vanished way of life. This very nice example of Hayne Hudjihini's portrait gives a hint of the beauty and charm that captivated President Monroe, Thomas McKenney and members of the Cabinet. She was one of Shaumonekusse's five wives, and was thought to be the most beautiful of all the Native American wives who visited Washington. She was eighteen or nineteen when King painted her portrait. Sadly, she died of the measles soon after returning home. McKenney and Hall's 'Indian Tribes of North America' has long been renowned for its faithful portraits of Native Americans. The portraits are largely based on paintings by the artist Charles Bird King, who was employed by the War Department to paint the Indian delegates visiting Washington D.C., forming the basis of the War Department's Indian Gallery. Most of King's original paintings were subsequently destroyed in a fire at the Smithsonian, and their appearance in McKenney and Hall's magnificent work is thus our only record of the likenesses of many of the most prominent Indian leaders of the nineteenth century. Numbered among King's sitters were Sequoyah, Red Jacket, Major Ridge, Keokuk, and Black Hawk. After six years as Superintendent of Indian Trade, Thomas McKenney had become concerned for the survival of the Western tribes. He had observed unscrupulous individuals taking advantage of the Native Americans for profit, and his vocal warnings about their future prompted his appointment by President Monroe to the Office of Indian Affairs. As first director, McKenney was to improve the administration of Indian programs in various government offices. His first trip was during the summer of 1826 to the Lake Superior area for a treaty with the Chippewa, opening mineral rights on their land. In 1827, he journeyed west again for a treaty with the Chippewa, Menominee , and Winnebago in the present state of Michigan. His journeys provided an opportunity to become acquainted with Native American tribes. When President Jackson dismissed him from his government post in 1830, McKenney was able to turn more of his attention to his publishing project. Within a few years, he was joined by James Hall, a lawyer who had written extensively about the west.McKenney and Hall saw their work as a way of preserving an accurate visual record of a rapidly disappearing culture.

        Brick from Washington’s Headquarters on Pearl Street in New York City

      Two pieces of red brick, oddly shaped, each approximately 1” x 0.5” x 0.5”, housed in a 2.75” high, 1.75”-diameter base, 19th century bottle sealed with a cork. From the John S. Reigart Collection of Historical American Relics. Inside bottle is a label neatly penned by John S. Reigart: “Piece of Brick / from / Washington’s / First / Head Quarters / in the City / of New York / 180 Pearl St.” John S. Reigart was born in 1833 or 1834 in New York City where he resided for most of his life. By occupation, he was a bank clerk with very precise penmanship which is evident on his identification label. During the mid and late 19th century Reigart assembled a comprehensive collection of relics from every period of America’s history. He was clearly aware of the importance of provenance of all the pieces in his collection and included detailed documentation in the form of period ink script notes, most of which he attached to the actual artifacts. About ten years ago, Reigart’s collection was discovered in the estate of a deceased Connecticut book dealer.
