        Timpoochee Barnard, an Uchee Warrior

      Philadelphia: F.W. Greenough, 1838. Lithograph "Drawn Printed and Coloured at J.T. Bowen's Lithographic Establishment", after a C.B.King portrait painted in 1825. In excellent condition. A fine image from McKenney and Hall's 'Indian Tribes of North America'. A venerated Yuchi chief, Timpoochee Barnard had a Scotish father and Yuchi mother. He was a commissioned major who valiantly fought under General Jackson against the Creeks in the 1814 Battle of Callabee Creek.. Major Barnard's distinguished military career continued with his gallant participation in the 1818 Seminole War and the battle at Econaffinnah or Natural Bridge of the same year. After travelling to Washington to contest the Indian Springs Treaty of 1825, he settled near Fort Mitchell, where he remained until his death. Of Timpoochee, President Jackson once remarked to his son, "A braver man than your father never lived." Also known as the Choya'ha or Tsoya'ha, meaning 'children of the sun', the Yuchi tribe inhabited the Southeastern region of the United States. They had been practically eliminated by the Creeks and Cherokees and lived uneasily in their midst. 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 Winebago in the present state of Michigan. His journeys provided an unparalleled 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. (Gilreath). Cf. BAL 6934; cf. Bennett p.79; cf. Field 992; cf. Howes M129; cf.

        Observations on limes, calcareous cements, mortars, stuccos, and concrete, and on puzzolanas, natural and artificial; together with rules deduced from numerous experiments for making an artificial water cement, equal in efficiency to the best natural cements of England, improperly termed Roman cements; and an abstract of the opinions of former authors on the same subjects.

      London: John Weale, Architectural Library. 1838. 8vo., (74) + 288 + 124 + (2)pp., with several woodcut text figures, various neat emphasis marks and a few marginal notes all in pencil by an earlier reader, original blind-stamped cloth, rebacked and lettered gilt. A very good uncut copy. First edition. Skempton 1047. 'The best of all the early British sources for the history of cements and concrete. During the 1820s Pasley conducted exhaustive tests into the properties and characteristics of natural English ('Roman') cement at Chatham, partly in order to manufacture an artificial cement of equal strength. Although his book was primarily intended to publicize this artificial material, he brought his considerable intellectual powers to bear on the whole subject, studying all the existing literature of the time, both British and foreign. His extensive commentary on these works, together with his inclusion of a great deal of first-hand information derived from friends and colleagues, manufacturers as well as engineers, are what makes this book so remarkable.' [Julia Elton, cat.no.6, 1991, p.104]. Sir Charles William Pasley (1780-1861), Army officer and engineer, was Director of Field Instruction at Chatham, 1812-1841. While there he organised improved systems of telegraphing, sapping, mining, pontooning, and exploding gunpowder on land and in water. His treatise on cements and concrete was 'immensely influential' (Elton). It was published in a second edition in 1847.

        A DISSERTATION ON THE NATURE AND CHARACTER OF THE CHINESE SYSTEM OF WRITING, IN

      Philadelphia 1838, American Philosophical Soc. Cloth over. boards, 375p., 10 plates of Chinese characters, very good,. minor wear to corners, spine head/tail contents clean, sound. bright white paper, no foxing. FIRST AND ONLY EDITION. AN EARLY & MOST IMPORTANT TREATISE ON CHINESE & VIETNAMESE This early resource is of importance as it outlines the true nature of Chinese characters and their meanings when opposed to their sounds. The VOCABULARY OF THE COCHINCHINESE is of major use with references to plates, containing the charact- ers belonging to each word, & with notes, showing the degree of affinity existing between the Chinese and Cochinchinese languages, and the use they respectively make of their com- mon system of writing. The last essay by Palun A COCHIN- CHINESE AND LATIN DICTIONARY in use among the R.C. Missions in Cochinchina is a special resource for those Catholic mis- sionaries to communcate to the Vietnamese in their own lang- uage, and an important early missionary dictionary. These resources are supported by appendices of letters from Du Ponceau to Capt. Basil Hall, 1828. Highly interesting and valuable early resource on both of these languages. For more details see L. Taylor: CATALOGUE OF BOOKS ON CHINA IN THE ESSEX INSTITUTE. p.274. Du Ponceau [1760-1844], was an Amer- rican author, lawyer and fought in the American Revolution and succeeded Thomas Jefferson as President of the American Philosophical Soc. Q U I T E R A R E !

        TOTOH SAIJIKI: ILLUSTRATED ANNALS OF EDO FESTIVALS & ANNUAL EVENTS BY SEASONS.

      Edo 1838, Suharaya. Blue stitched wrs., 5 vol., covers rub-. bed and soiled, contents clean, solid, 25+10, 24+33+35+25+9. double leaf pages, 136 illustrations, some double page, wood. block printed by hand on hand-made mulberry paper. SCARCE. Saito [1804-78], was an Edo author. The book was illustrated by Hasegawa Settan [1778-1843, and his son Settei [1819-82]. The father was a pupil of Toyokuni, particularly well known for this work as well as EDO MEISHO ZUE. The work is chrono- logically arranged to show every festival or event held in the Edo area. It is a lovely and most profusely illustra- ted record of the events, the people and the location where celebrated. This work covers a great breath and width, with such old classics as Hanami or spring cherry blossom view- ing, musical recitals, Daimyo processions, tug-of-war, chry- santhemum viewing, a wide variety of Buddhist and Shinto shrine celebrations, Sumo wrestling, Yoshiwara parade of the prostitutes, New Years, swords, scrolls and old book and a host of other festivals and celebrations. This also lists the whole year's celebrations in an index by dates. Many of these same festivals are still celebrated today in Tokyo. A throughly quaint resource, and joy to behold. The set has some minor and occasional old worming, thumb marks, faint marginal and cover stains, but all in all a good copy of a very SCARCE title. Cited in D.

        Map of Oregon Territory.

      Utica, N.Y.: M. M. Peabody, 1838. - Single sheet, (14 ¾ x 23 inches). Fine engraved map of Oregon Territory (professionally reinforced at old fold corners). First edition. This is the EARLIEST ACCURATE MAP OF OREGON, and an attractive copy. "Samuel Parker's 'Map of Oregon Territory' of 1838 represented a real advance, and was made from personal observation. Of it Wagner-Camp remarked that it was 'the earliest to obtain circulation which contains reliable information as to the interior of Oregon Territory ' On this map the North Fork of the Platte is shown, with the Sweetwater flowing into it. South Pass is not named, but the sources of the Sweetwater and the Big Sandy are close together. Bear River is imperfect, but correctly flows into Salt Lake, while not far north, at the mouth of the Portneuf, is Fort Hall. The Yellowstone heads in Lake Eustis, but Lewis and Clark's Lake Biddle is now absent, and west of the crest of the Rockies is Jackson's Lake, under the Trois Tetons, finding its outlet in a stream that flows into Henry's Fork, and later the Snake " (Wheat, Mapping the Transmississippi West II pp. 165-166).

        JOURNALS OF THE SPECIAL COUNCIL OF THE PROVINCE OF LOWER CANADA

      Montreal, 1838. Quarto. Later cloth, red and black gilt morocco labels. Moderate soiling on covers, library labels at toe of spines. Uniform light toning. Perforated library stamps on titlepages, occasional additional library markings. First twenty pages of last volume in typescript facsimile. Overall very good. Lacks the sixth volume. An important collection of Canadian laws as passed by the Special Council of Lower Canada from 1838 to 1840. When the Patriot Uprising of 1838 caused Canadian officials to suspend the 1791 constitution (which had divided Canada into the Upper and Lower Provinces, each with their own legislature) and establish martial law, the provincial judiciary assumed administrative control in the form of the Special Council. The Special Council continued in an administrative capacity until the Union Act of 1840, which reunited the provinces with a single legislature. A fundamental cause of the Patriot Uprising was the ambiguous extent of judiciary power; based on the reign of the Special Council (recorded in detail here), judicial powers were more clearly defined via the Union Act. TPL calls for six volumes bound in three. The present set features each volume bound separately, lacking the sixth volume. The large portions of unnumbered pages at the end of each contain sessional papers, appendices, and indices. Key insight into a tumultuous period of Canadian legal history. The journals were also issued in French. OCLC locates only five copies, none of which appear to be complete.

        Kish-Ke-Kosh, a Fox Brave

      Philadelphia: F.W. Greenough, 1838. Hand-coloured lithograph by J.T. Bowen after George Cooke's 1837 portrait. In excellent condition apart from some light off-setting and soiling. 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. A reputedly fierce warrior with an imposing presence, Kish-Ke-Kosh attended the delegation of Sioux and Fox and Sauk chiefs at the War Department in 1837, where the two tribes signed a tenuous peace treaty. Despite his normal appearance, his name roughly translated means 'The Man with One Leg' or 'He with a Cut Hoof'. The Fox tribe, which are actually the Mesquaki, inhabited the Great Lakes region of the United States and merged with the Sauk tribe in the eighteenth century. 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 Winebago in the present state of Michigan. His journeys provided an unparalleled 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. (Gilreath). Cf. BAL 6934; cf. Bennett p.79; cf. Field 992; cf. Howes M129; cf.

        The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym. Of Nantucket

      New York: Harper & Brothers, 1838. First edition. Near Fine. A lovely copy of the book, easily Near Fine, and likely one of the finest copies extant. Slight rubbing to the paper spine label with one pin-head sized hole, all lettering complete and legible, a few minor blemishes to the cloth. A few bookseller notations on the end papers (in pencil), mostly commenting on what a fine copy this is, otherwise as clean and fresh as you could hope for internally. Housed in a custom clamshell case. Poe's only novel - an under-appreciated classic. "The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym" follows the dark adventures of a stowaway on board a New England whaling ship. Poe was drawn to the idea of writing a longer work because of the difficulty he was having sustaining a career with his short stories. Although Pym contains Poe's trademark mastery of the uncanny, he was also inspired by a number of non-fictional contemporary travel accounts of the South Seas and areas near the Antarctic. The novel's reception was tepid, but it would later be recognized as a hidden masterpiece that exerted a strong influence on both American literature and the literature of the fantastic. Pym is thought to have helped inspired Melville's Moby Dick - the works share some strong familiarities of theme and structure - as well as the author Jules Verne, who even wrote his own sequel to the work. In fact, the novel gained a great deal of respect abroad before American critics re-evaluated it. Baudelaire would translate it and Borges called it "Poe's greatest work." Lovecraft too was an admirer, and used many of its elements in his own story, "At The Mountains of Madness." The work appears on The Guardian's list of "100 Best Novels.". Near Fine.

        Tai-O-Mah, A Musquakee Brave

      Philadelphia: F.W. Greenough, 1838. Hand-coloured lithograph by J. T. Bowen. In excellent condition. 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. Also occasionally referred to as the "medicine man", Tai-O-Mah or Taimah, "Thunder" or "He Who Shakes the Rocks" (c. 1790 - 1830) was an esteemed Fox warrior and chief who maintained an amicable relationship with the United States throughout his life. In 1824, he traveled to Washington as a member of the Sac and Fox delegation, led by General William Clark, which signed a treaty ceding their lands in northern Missouri and the southeastern part of Iowa to the federal government. It was during this visit to the capital that Charles Bird King painted the chief's picture after which McKenney's print was made. Taimah was also a leader of the influential Midewiwin or Great Medicine Society, a secret shamanistic society with religious affiliations that McKenney likened to the Freemasons. It is interesting to note given the calm composure which pervades his features that Taimah was suffering from tuberculosis at the time the portrait was being done. He is buried in Des Moines County, Iowa. 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.

        Stum-Ma-Nu, a Flat-Head Boy

      Philadelphia: F.W. Greenough, 1838. Hand-coloured lithograph. In excellent condition. 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. Stumanu (?1818- 1839) was of the Chinook, or Flathead (as designated by the whites), tribe that inhabited the region north of the Columbia River in present day Washington (then Oregon Territory). According to McKenney, the Chinook were "a very interesting people. They are honest, hospitable, and kindly disposed towards the whites. They excel most other Indians in simplicity and frankness of character." Stumanu, who, living on the Columbia, was an expert fisherman, was educated at the Indian school founded by Dr. John M'Loughlin, "Father of Oregon". Still young, Stumanu was taken east by a missionary in a fundraising effort. There, in New York City in 1839, he contracted an unknown illness and died. McKenney and Hall's 'Indian Tribes of North America' has long been renowned for its faithful portraits of Native Americans.

        Bella oleografia originale raffigurante una scena dell'opera "Tosca" di Giacomo Puccini. inizi XX secolo.

      - Oleografia originale in formato cm.53x78, raffigurante la scena della morte di Scarpia per mano di Floria Tosca alla fine del secondo atto dell'opera pucciniana. Gradevole policromia, in cornice coeva lavorata a mano, in formato cm.74x99, con cimasa. Insieme di notevole impatto visivo. L?oleografia è una stampa eseguita da matrici di pietra litografica, generalmente marna calcarea, mediante l'utilizzo di inchiostri grassi che, una volta asciutti, mantengono una lucidità tipica del colore a olio. Il procedimento consiste nella sovrapposizione di più immagini di diversi colori tracciate su lastre di pietra diverse: il prodotto finito può dare quindi l?illusione di essere un vero dipinto. Nata nel 1838, la tecnica oleografica permetterà un'ampia diffusione di immagini religiose, storiche, operistiche o popolari, grazie ad una capillare distribuzione casa per casa, svolta principalmente da venditori ambulanti, soprattutto trentini. 3000 gr.

        An untitled manuscript map of Cumberland County, New Jersey, and the surrounding area

      [No place but Burlington, Iowa, 1838. Pen, ink and watercolour map of Cumberland County, with the properties of D. Parvin and D. Harris, and numerous towns located, the demarcation line between marsh and solid ground marked, and the routes and names of all the main rivers and creeks shown, some roads marked in pencil, and the route between Salem, Salem Co., and the tip of Cape May marked with a purple dotted line. Sheet size: 16 3/4 x 13 1/2 inches. An attractive map of Cumberland County, in southern New Jersey The Parvin property is identified as being on the southern bank of the Cohansey River in Fairfield Township. The Harris property is in adjoining Downe Township. These are the only two individual properties identified on the map, suggesting that the map was either compiled for or by a member of the Parvin or Harris family. This map was loosely inserted in an 1838 edition of Bradford's Illustrated Atlas , inscribed on the title "Theodore Sutton Parvin, Burlington, Iowa, August 15/ [18]38", and an examination of the map of New Jersey in the atlas shows that the Cumberland County area was squared up for enlargement. All of which gives a source and probable author of the map. Parvin has added some names and geographical features in addition to those shown on the Bradford engraved map. Theodore Sutton Parvin was born in Cedarville, Cumberland County, N. J., on January 15, 1817; and died June 28, 1901. He graduated at Woodward College, Cincinnati, in 1836; he studied law; was private secretary of Robert Lucas, the first governor of the Iowa Territory, and was the first librarian of that territory.

        An Illustrated Atlas, Geographical Statistical, and Historical, of the United States, and the adjacent countries

      Boston & Cincinnati: stereotyped and printed by Fulsom, Wells & Thurston of Cambridge, Mass. for Weeks, Jordan & Co. of Boston and Edward Lucas & Co. of Cincinnati, 1838. Folio. (19 1/2 x 15 3/4 inches). Engraved additional title with integral hand-coloured decorative pictorial surround, 39 hand-coloured engraved maps and town-plans (34 maps [one double-page], 5 town-plans), by G.W.Boynton and others. Contemporary light brown half morocco over embossed cloth-covered boards, brown morocco title label on the upper cover, lettered in gilt, the spine divided into five compartments by wide semi-raised bands, the bands highlighted with gilt tooling, marbled endpapers Provenance: Theodore Sutton Parvin (1817-1901, Burlington, Iowa, inscription dated 15 August 1838 on additional title) A fine copy of "one of the first American general atlases to supplement the maps with lengthy geographical descriptions" (Ristow), with detailed maps of the 28 States, and including an excellent early map of the Republic of Texas. Martin and Martin, in their entry on Bradford's 1835 map of Texas, also note that "Bradford published a completely new atlas in 1838, in a larger format, and the map of Texas it contained was even more clearly patterned on [Stephen Fuller] Austin's [Map of Texas, published in Philadelphia in 1830]." It was one of the first maps of Texas as a Republic to appear in an atlas. The atlas is made up of a general map of North America, two maps of Canada, a folding map of the United States, 28 maps of States, a map of the Republic of Texas, a map of the islands of the Caribbean and five town-plans of eight U.S. cities (Washington, New Orleans, Louisville and Cincinnati on one sheet, and single sheet plans of Boston, New York, Philadelphia and Baltimore). Unlike many atlases of the period, the present work includes extensive text (170pp. in total). Each engraving is accompanied by explanatory articles on the history, economics and geography of the area, as well as a great deal of contemporary statistical information. The provenance is particularly interesting: Theodore Sutton Parvin was born in Cedarville, Cumberland County, N. J., on January 15, 1817; and died June 28, 1901. "He was graduated at Woodward College, Cincinnati, in 1836; he studied law; was private secretary of the first governor of Iowa Territory, Robert Lucas, in 1838, and was the first librarian of that territory. Later he was librarian and professor in the Iowa State University; was a founder of the Iowa State Historical Society in 1857, and for the years 1863-65 was its corresponding secretary and editor. He was the founder, in 1844, of the Iowa Masonic Library, and through his exertions this library has its present building at Cedar Rapids. From its foundation until his death, fifty-seven years, he was its librarian" (Collections of the Minnesota Historical Society, [1905]. vol.X, part II, p.871). Le Gear L33; cf.

        Illustrations of Her Majesty's Palace at Brighton; formerly the Pavilion: executed by the command of King George the fourth, under the superintendence of John Nash ... To which is prefixed a history of the palace, by ... Brayley

      London: J.B. Nichols & Son, also sold by R. Loder and James Taylor of Brighton, 1838. Folio. (21 1/2 x 14 1/2 inches). Wood-engraved title vignette. 31 plates and plans after A. Pugin and others (20 present in two states, giving a plate total of 51): some aquatint, some hand-coloured, some line etchings, some on india paper mounted, some mounted. Expertly bound to style in half black straight-grained morocco over contemporary marbled paper-covered boards, spine with raised bands in 8 compartments, decoratively tooled in gilt A unique copy of this valuable record of one of the most extraordinary architectural achievements of the early-19th century. John Nash was largely responsible for adapting Henry Holland's Marine Pavilion at Brighton for the Prince of Wales. Nikolaus Pevsner ( The Buildings of England , Harmondsworth, 1951-74) notes that Nash "kept the shape of Holland's building entirely and only threw his fancy dress over it, and he added as outer pavilions larger rooms than any so far." During the 1820s, acting on a further commission from his Royal client, Nash asked his pupil Augustus Pugin to produce a series of drawings and from these and other drawings a series of plates were produced. These were published in a suite containing both coloured aquatints and uncoloured line etchings under the title The Royal Pavilion at Brighton . The publication methods of this lavish production were somewhat haphazard, resulting in copies of the book not conforming with the list of plates. After Nash's death in 1835, the London publishers J. B. Nichols and Son acquired the plates and were commissioned to print Edward Wedlake Brayley's Careful Survey of the Palace , which they published in 1836. In 1838 they combined Brayley's text with the uncoloured outline etchings, and published Illustrations of Her Majesty's Palace at Brighton , dedication to Queen Victoria. This second issue of the plates is arguably a new work, in that for the first time the plates and text are combined. The work was issued complete with uncoloured outline etchings and text; however, the publishers offered separately-issued coloured aquatints, finished by hand and mounted on card, "to be bound with the Work at the option of the purchaser." Besides including some of these extra, and desirable, coloured plates, this copy includes variants of the uncoloured plates. Abbey describes some, but the present copy is unusual in the large number of different uncoloured and colour-printed variants. Abbey Scenery 62; Tooley 338; Lowndes II, 1651; cf. Fischer, New Berlin Kat., 1977, vol. I (Baukunst England) 2344.; cf. Brunet IV, 14.

Jean Etienne Dominique Esquirol (1772-1840) fut l'élève préféré de Pinel; il lui succéda à la Salpêtrière où il fut le premier conférencier dans le domaine de la psychiatrie. Il poursuivit sans se lasser l'extraordinaire travail commencé par son maître; d'une part, il reprit et rectifia la grande classification des principaux types de la folie; d'autre part, il proposa une réforme complète des établissements d'aliénés et créa lui-même dix asiles. Le texte présenté ici est le premier livre moderne sur le sujet. Exemplaire dont l'atlas a été très bien relié à l'imitation des volumes de texte.

        OLIVER TWIST; Or the Parish Boy's Progress

      Richard Bentley, London 1838 - First edition in three volumes in the original publisher's fine diaper cloth with arabesque designs on the boards. First issues with Boz on the title pages (not "Charles Dickens") and with the "fireside plate" in volume 3. Bound with all half-titles and ads as required by Smith. A set that is a little better than Good, but not much. Amateur repairs to the spines of all three volumes. Internal contents generally clean although with scattered foxing, most noticeable near the plates. Dickens' second novel, "Oliver Twist," is a dark and biting work, but one that is balanced with Oliver's indefatigable innocence and charm. Often cited as the first Victorian novel to feature a child protagonist, it was developed as a social commentary and a call for improving the conditions of London's destitute and orphan children. And it was immensely successful, both as a novel filled with memorable characters and also as a work prompting much needed reform. Today it remains high within the pantheon of Victorian literature and is a work that has been successfully adapted to both the stage and screen. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Autograph letter signed ("R. Schumann").

      [Leipzig], 11. II. 1838. - 8vo. 1 p. A fine letter from the difficult engagement years, written to Clara's stepmother and Robert Schumann's future mother-in-law Clementine Wieck, inquiring whether "Madam Wieck" knows anything new about Clara's approaching appointment as Imperial and Royal Chamber Virtuoso by the Austrian Emperor: "Yesterday, Count Zerbst, a distant relative of the Austrian envoy, visited me and told me, that his lord, the Prince of Schönburg, took a great interest in the matter and that the appointment was imminent. I can imagine your great joy. But please do me the favour and let me know if you hear anything more specific so that I can have it inserted in the journal [.]". - Austria's highest musical award was bestowed on Clara on March 15th during her concert tour in Vienna - an honour all the more remarkable for her being such a young artist, as well as a foreigner. It is, therefore, little surprise that Robert Schumann wished to see the fact announced in the "Neue Zeitschrift für Musik", which he edited from 1834 to 1844. - Noticeable browning; some brownstaining.

The 2 text volumes with soiling to extremities and book-blocks with a clean split down the middle (still intact and nothing missing. Spines with nicks and chips and top of spine on volume 2 lacking small piece of paper affecting author's name. Atlas-volume lacking paper on spine (but sewing still holding tight) and 5x2 cm of outer margin of front wrapper. Overall a fine and clean set in the original condition. [Vol. 1:] XVIII, 678; [Vol. 2:] (4), 864 pp. [Atlas-vol.:] (4) + 27 engraved plates (1 folding).. First edition, in extremely rare original condition - uncut, unopened, and in the original wrappers -, of this seminal first modern textbook of psychiatry. With the present work, Esquirol was the first to apply statistical methods in the clinical study of madness, famously making the first distinction between hallucinations and illusions. Togeher with Pinel, he founded the French school of psychiatry; - "Esquirol really represents the beginning of all classification in psychiatry." (A Historical Dictionary of Psychiatry). The accompanying atlas constitutes the first important iconography of the insane."He published Des maladies mentales (Mental Maladies) in 1838, only two years before his death. In that treatise, Esquirol tries to classify different types of mental disorders. Chapter VIII is entitled "De la lypémanie ou mélancolie," and tries to rephrase and to medicalize the concept of melancholy. Esquirol replaces "melancholy" with a term that will shape mental alienations studies for a long time: monomania. Esquirol creates the term lypemania to signify a type of depressive monomania. Lypemania is hereditary, and affects subjects with "un tempérament mélancolique." (Brown University Library). Jean-Étienne Esquirol (1772-1840) was one of Philippe Pinel's students at Salpêtrière. Economically financed by Pinel (father of what today is referred to as moral therapy and instrumental in the development of a more humane psychological approach to psychiatric patients), Esquirol, in 1801, established a private asylum - maison de santé. Like Pinel, Esquirol believed in the positive effects of isolation from the outside world and felt that this would contribute greatly to distracting the patient from the previously unhealthy passions that had ruled his or her life. Esquirol put into operation Pinel's notion of the therapeutic community: patients and physicians lived as community members in a psychiatric setting. Whereas Pinel believed that manic forms of mental illness were caused by the stomach, Esquirol adopted Gall's theory of cerebral localization, and believed that all forms of mental illness could be located in the brain. Esquirol believed that mental disorders resulted from unbalanced passions, and he urged the government to create appropriate structures for the curing of the mentally ill which - mainly because of the present publication - resulted in the national law of 1838 that instituted departmental asylums for all needy French mental patients, it is still in force today.Esquirol's 'Maladies mentales', remained a basic psychiatric text for over half a century and is still today regarded as one of the fundamental works in modern psychiatry.Garrison-Morton 4798Norman 724
