Thèse d'agrégation de médecine soutenue et remportée en 1838 et à laquelle, Royer-Collard devra la Chaire d'hygiène de la Faculté de Paris. Adrien Proust, le père de l'écrivain, qui occupera cette Chaire, lui rendra dans son discours d'investiture, un hommage appuyé, en l'identifiant comme le fondateur de la discipline et comme celui qui élargira le champ d'investigation de la médecine, jusqu'alors penchée sur l'individu, vers les problèmes de santé publique .

        Sartor Resartus; The Life and Opinions of Herr Teufelsdröckh

      Saunders and Otley, London 1838 - Octavo (8 x 5"). XII, 310, [2]pp (Publisher's advertisement). Original half cloth over paper covered boards, with printed title label on spine. "Sartor Resartus" is Thomas Carlyle's most enduring and influential work. Originally published in serial form in "Fraser's Magazine" in 1833-1834, it was discovered by the American Transcendentalists.* Sponsored by Ralph Waldo Emerson, it was first printed as a book in Boston in 1836 and immediately became the inspiration for the Transcendental movement. The first London trade edition was published in 1838 (our copy). By the 1840s, largely on the strength of "Sartor Resartus," Carlyle became one of the leading literary figures in Britain.The work is a fictional autobiography of a German philosopher called Diogenes Teufelsdröckh. Its deeper concerns are social injustice, the right way of living in the world, and the large questions of faith and understanding.Spine sunned and partly frayed along edges. Moderate rubbing to covers. Front hinge starting. Previous owner's name in ink at upper margin of title page. Sporadic foxing throughout. Clear water-staining at lower margin of a few pages (not affecting lettering). Binding in overall fair, interior in good to very good condition. * Transcendentalism is an American literary, political, and philosophical movement of the early nineteenth century, centered around Ralph Waldo Emerson. Other important transcendentalists were Henry David Thoreau, Margaret Fuller, Amos Bronson Alcott, Frederic Henry Hedge, and Theodore Parker. Stimulated by English and German Romanticism, the Biblical criticism of Herder and Schleiermacher, and the skepticism of Hume, the transcendentalists operated with the sense that a new era was at hand. They were critics of their contemporary society for its unthinking conformity, and urged that each person find, in Emerson's words, "an original relation to the universe" (O, 3). Emerson and Thoreau sought this relation in solitude amidst nature, and in their writing. By the 1840s they, along with other transcendentalists, were engaged in the social experiments of Brook Farm, Fruitlands, and Walden; and, by the 1850s in an increasingly urgent critique of American slavery.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. Berlin, 30. VI. 1838.

      1838. 2 SS. auf gefalt. Doppelblatt mit papiergedecktem Siegel und Adresse (Faltbrief). 8vo. Launiger Brief an den Musiker Friedrich Wieck (1785-1873), Vater und Lehrer der Pianistin Clara Wieck (bald: Schumann), die der Adressat zum Zeitpunkt dieses Schreibens nach Tunlichkeit von ihrem Verlobten, seinem ehemaligen Schüler Robert Schumann zu trennen suchte: "Verehrtester Freund! Clara-beglückter Vater! Ich grüße Sie und Ihr Fräulein Tochter auf das Innigste, und das ist mir sehr fatal - denn wenn ich bei Ihnen in Leipzig wäre so braucht ich nicht erst zu schreiben und zu grüßen; dann brauchte ich bloss die Ohren zu spitzen. Berlin gähnt jetzt ungeheuer. Wegen des Instrumentes beim alten Behrend habe noch nichts wirken können. Soll's denn 24 oder 22 fr'dor kosten. Herr Gott ich vergesse aber ganz - ich habe die Ehre Ihnen meinen Freund und Landsmann den H. Assessor [August] Lemke aus Danzig vorzustellen, der ein guter Dilettant (Klavier u. Cello) und Universitätsfreund von Rob. Schumann ist. Gönnen Sie ihm das beneidenswerthe Glück (ich ärgere mich) Ihre Clara zu hören, dann braucht er auf seiner Ferner-Reise nicht weiter Clavierspielen zu hören. [...] Dies ist die Karte für Mlle. Clara Wieck, die ich vergessen habe abzugeben, wie Sie sich von der Treppe warfen Mittags um 12 Uhr wo Sie einen Studenten belangen wollten". - Leicht knittrig. Truhn, Schüler von Ries und Zelter, übernahm 1835 die Kapellmeisterstelle am Stadttheater in Danzig, wo er außerdem als Musiklehrer wirkte. "Nach seiner Rückkehr nach Berlin (1837) widmete sich Truhn in erster Linie publizistischer Tätigkeit [...] Truhn hat sich als Komponist, Dirigent, Schriftsteller und Organisator große Verdienste um das Musikleben in Berlin, Danzig, Elbing und Riga erworben. Unter seinen Kompositionen ragen neben Chor- und Bühnenwerken vor allem zahlreiche Lieder hervor, welche seinerzeit sehr beliebt und verbreitet waren. Eine bemerkenswerte Rolle fiel Truhn als weitblickendem Organisator des Männerchorwesens zu (Gründer u.a. der Neuen Liedertafel in Berlin). Seine schriftstellerischen Arbeiten weisen ihn als seriösen Kritiker aus" (MGG XIII, 851).

        Autograph letter signed ("vNiembsch"). Vienna, 5. X. 1838.

      1838. 4to. 1 p. Intimate letter of condolence to the unnamed Johann Georg von Cotta (1796-1863): "Nach einem langen Irrlauf durch verschiedene Bezirke Wiens ist Ihr geehrter Brief endlich mir zugekommen. Eine Verspätung, welche mir um so bedauerlicher ist, als der Inhalt Ihres Schreibens mir die Pflicht ungesäumter Beantwortung auferlegt. Nichts von Trost. Die Lücke, die durch den Tod eines geliebten Menschen in das Leben der Seinigen gerissen wird, läßt sich nicht mit Worten und Gedanken ausfüllen. Ein solcher Verlust ist der einer in sich einzigen, unersetzlichen Realität, und nie zu verschmerzen. Wie Ihnen auch alle übrige Freude des Lebens gedeihen mag, verehrter Freund, durch diese Lücke wird es immer rauh und kalt auf Sie hereinwehen, bis Sie selbst im Tode erkalten. Wohl haben Sie das Recht mein Mitgefühl zu fordern, und es ist Ihnen dieses bereits in vollem Maße zugefallen, als ich die traurige Kunde aus der allgemeinen Zeitung ersehen. Ich habe Ihre Verewigte gekannt und hatte das Glück, von ihr manches Zeichen freundlicher Theilnahme zu empfangen. Die kindliche Güte dieser verehrungswürdigen Frau hat einen bleibenden Eindruck in mir zurückgelassen; sie sprach aus jedem Zuge ihres Gesichtes und alle ihre Worte waren davon beseelt. Die kindliche Güte war gewiß noch auf das Antlitz der Leiche herausgetreten, als die letzte stille Bitte, von Ihnen und Ihren Kindern nie vergessen zu werden. Ich bedaure Sie und diese von ganzem Herzen. Daß Sie in Ihrem großen und gerechten Schmerze zu mir gekommen um ein Wort der Theilnahme, hat mich innig erfreut und neuerdings überzeugt, daß zwischen uns eine nähere und höhere Beziehung stattfinden soll als diejenige, in der wir uns letzter Zeit nicht verständigt haben. Das läßt mich unsere kleinen untergeordneten Differenzen um so mehr beklagen, aber auch um so leichter vergessen [...]". - Small, contemporary pencil note on reverse: "I. N. 4685 A[llgemeine] Z[eitung] [...] v. 3. Spt. 1838 S. 1872 steht die Anzeige von dem am 24. Aug. erfolgten Ableben der Frau v. [illegible]". - Lenau had first visited Swabia in August 1831 and had met Gustav Schwab, Ludwig Uhland, Justinus Kerner, Alexander Gf. v. Württemberg, and Carl Mayer. He also signed his first contract with the Stuttgart publisher Cotta, who was to publish his first volume of poetry in the following year. - The historical-critical edition states that in 1923 the letter was in the collection of one Martin Wasservogel, Berlin, and then considered lost. Investigations into the letter's whereabouts proved fruitless, as "the Berlin address books of the years 1918-1933 list several persons of that name" (cf. Bd. VI.2, p. 78f.). Printed in: Nikolaus Lenau. Werke und Briefe. Historisch-kritische Gesamtausgabe. Hg. im Auftr. der Internationalen Lenau-Gesellschaft. Vol. VI.1: Briefe 1838-1847. Textteil.

        Paul et Virginie.

      Paris: L. Curmer, 1838. Large 8vo (278 x 178mm), lvi, 458, [14]pp., portrait frontispiece, additional engraved title page, 37 steel-engraved plates with tissue guards, illustrations within the text, original wrappers bound in, sumptuously bound in light brown straight-grained morocco by Noulhac, richly gilt and inlaid in imitation of a cathédrale binding, morocco turn-ins with elaborately decorated gilt borders, green silk linings, all edges gilt, in a half morocco chemise and slip case, a beautiful copy in fine condition. Henri Noulhac (1866-1931) bookbinder and gilder, was born in Chateauroux, where he served his apprenticeship as a bookbinder. In 1894 he moved to Paris, establishing his atelier at 10 rue de Buci. A superlative craftsman, Noulhac specialized initially in plain leather bindings (reliures jansénistes) and copies of romantic eighteenth-century bindings. By 1900 he had begun tentatively to incorporate modest floral emblems into the dentilled fillet borders on his covers. Noulhac did not attempt to create a reputation for himself as a book cover designer per se, a decision that he later regretted. His daughter, who studied art under Adolphe Giraldon, joined him towards 1914 as a design collaborator. Noulhac's clients in the early years of the century included H. Béraldi (his main patron), Belinac, Piolenc, Renevey, and Marcel Bernard. During World War I Noulhac executed several bindings designed by Jules Chadel for Henri Vever. Notable examples included Causerie sur l'art dramatique, Pasels, Cyrano, and Ce Brigand d'amour. He also executed bindings for Legrain. In the 1920s, Noulhac developed into a fine instructor, numbering Rose Alder and Madeleine Gras among his students.—Duncan & De Bartha, Art Nouveau and Art Deco Bookbinding. Provenance: From the library of Senhor Nicolau Lunardellis sold by Sotheby's in 1969.

Après une première partie anatomique et de classification, La Rue décrit physiquement chaque insecte selon son espèce (ordre) ou sous-espèce (sous-ordre). Il donne une description plus détaillée pour les coléoptères et les lépidoptères, s'attardant parfois assez longuement sur les moyens de destruction de certaines espèces, afin d'éviter leur prolifération et les ravages qu'ils produisent (en particulier pour les rostricornes, cylindriformes, filicornes, toutes les espèces de bombyces, les séticornes, phalènes arpenteuses du pin et les pyralies verdâtres). Dans les deux dernières parties, La Rue propose des "Mesures et opérations propres à prévenir la multiplication et les dégâts des insectes", classées selon les mois de l'année, et quelques conseils pour le traitement des bois gâtés par les insectes. In fine, 6 planches en noir montrent 39 figures d'insectes ou de détails anatomiques.

        Autograph letter signed ("R. Schumann"). [Leipzig], 11. II. 1838.

      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.

        Systeme cellulare. P. Guillo. Reponse aux questions a' lui soumises par S. E. le Ministre de l'Interieur 20 novembre 1838

      s.e, 1838. Manoscritto (cm 22 x 34), pp. (24) con allegata lettera di 2 pp. mss. a firma Macarel, nella quale veniva richiesto questo parere a nome del ministro degli interni. Il parere di Monsieur Guillo verte essenzialmente su tre questioni: quale dovesse essere la disposizione e la dimensione delle celle in base al lavoro assegnato al carcerato, e se occorresse, per alcuni lavori, adibire delle officine al di fuori delle celle; che tipo di industrie ritenesse piu' opportuno impiantare negli stabilimenti cellulari con indicazione degli spazi necessari, sempre considerando una popolazione carceraria di 500 persone; quale potesse essere la paga per giornata di lavoro data all'amministrazione, specialmente per le case di Melun, Poissy, Gaillon e Fontrevrault, nella doppia ipotesi di avere un contratto a forfait oppure un costo fisso al pezzo con un ribasso del 20% rispetto al prezzo di mercato. Nell'introduzione l'A. premette che i suoi pareri valgono solamente nel caso venga avviato un regime cellulare e non nel caso si conservi il sistema di lavoro attuale delle "maison centrales". Infatti, egli, essendo ancora attivo come imprenditore presso alcuni stabilimenti, ravviserebbe un palese conflitto di interessi. Per quanto riguarda la prima domanda, Guillo stabilisce in tre metri quadri la misura delle celle, dotate di gabinetto con sifone, riscaldate e con accesso ad un "promenoir" ed a un corridoio di servizio. Per quanto riguarda la seconda domanda, l'A. si rivela essere un sostenitore del sistema Filadelfia, (come descritto da Tocquevile e Beaumont), afferma infatti che con l?isolamento totale in uno stabilimento possano coesistere da 12 a 1500 persone mentre con il sistema di Aubrun (isolamento notturno e lavoro in comune di giorno), non possano coesistere piu' di 3- 400 individui. Chiara e' la maggior convenienza di un carcere per 1000 piuttosto che per 500, sia per le spese di costruzione sia per quelle di gestione. Inoltre Guillo approva l'idea che a cominciare l?esperimento del carcere cellulare siano i condannati ai ferri e i recidivi visto che, in attesa della costruzione delle carceri cellulari, si potra' continuare l'esperienza del regime del lavoro in silenzio gia' attivo nel carcere di Gaillon. Non solo, il governo deve resistere ai filantropi che demonizzano il carcere cellulare, e chiedono una riduzione delle pene, perche' questi non conoscono la vera natura dei condannati. Per poter ben giudicare questo nuovo sistema di carcerazione occorrera' provarlo e in attesa l?amministrazione non potra' certo ridurre le pene. Nella relazione sono poi presi in esame i vari tipi di lavori che possono essere insegnati ai carcerati, con particolare riferimento a quelle occupazioni che possono essere esercitate dagli ex carcerati una volta divenuti liberi, magari proprio presso le loro case e con l'aiuto dei familiari. Le attivita' sono la tessitura, la "bonnetterie", l?arte del calzolaio e del tagliatore d'abiti. Queste dovranno essere le quattro arti da esercitarsi in carcere, anche perche' il salario giornaliero dovra' essere omogeneo. L'Amministrazione dovra' solo vigilare che a livello locale nessuno abbia iniziative o introduca lavori diversi da questi. Per quanto riguarda poi il modello di impresa da utilizzare, Guillo rigetta l?idea di una amministrazione imprenditrice. Sostiene invece che l?Amministrazione debba "laisser les travaux des prisonniers dans l?industrie libre" e organizzare il lavoro dei detenuti in collaborazione con questa. In particolare egli pensa ad una impresa generale con dei forti capitali che gestisca il lavoro nelle carceri, in grado di offrire maggiore solidita' nei momenti di difficolta'. Purtroppo - dice sempre Guillo - sino a quel momento non e' stato possibile far vincere la ripugnanza di una tale intrapresa agli industriali piu' strutturati e facoltosi e, di conseguenza, le carceri sono divenute preda di industriali senza capitali incapaci di offrire opportune garanzie: ecco la necessita' di una impresa generale.

        STORIA DEL FORTE DI SARZANELLO.

      Tipografia Chirio e Mina, 1838. Prima edizione. Cm.25,7x16,6. Pg.84. Legatura in mz.pergamena con piatti originali applicati alla coperta. Vistose bruniture. Alcuni segni a matita colorata ai lati del testo. Esemplare ad ampi margini. Due carte in grande formato, raffiguranti le sezioni e il piano del Forte di Sarzanello. Pubblicazione di notevole rarità sul celebre "Forte di Sarzanello". Si tratta di una fortificazione militare ubicata in Via alla Fortezza, sulla collina di Sarzanello, nei dintorni di Sarzana in provincia di La Spezia, che domina dall'alto la Val di Magra. Le prime notizie del Forte risalgono al X secolo, quando l'Imperatore Ottone I concede al Vescovo di Luni sei "castra", fra i quali appunto quello "de Sarzano". Assunse grande importanza tra il 1314 e il 1318, quando divenne residenza del vicario imperiale Castruccio Castracani. Il Promis riprende quanto scritto dal Tegrimi e dal Manuzio, attribuendo la costruzione del Forte allo stesso Castracani. > Repetti, "Dizionario geografico fisico storico della Toscana", V, 195.

        Oliver Twist

      First issue, credited to "Boz" on the title pages of all three volumes and with the "fireside" plate to volume three. Bound in the original cloth, all volumes re-backed onto similarly toned cloth, preserving the original endpapers and pastedowns, each with the same bookplate. All three volumes are firmly and squarely bound, the cloth is rubbed and bumped, with minor loss to the spines, but the gilt lettering remains reasonably bright and they are clean. The text blocks are slightly foxed and toned, the gutters have been neatly repaired, there are no inscriptions and no signs of previous ownership other than the aforementioned bookplates to the pastedowns, generally the contents are clean, and the illustrations sharp, having suffered little from the browning that often occurs. Overall, an attractive uniform set, much better than the average.
