Casimir Anne Marie Broussais
Paris, J.-B. Ballière. In-4° broché, 51 pages. Importantes rousseurs, une mouillure dans la marge supérieure. Bien complet de la planche d'errata souvent absente en bibliothèque publique. Cette année la, le concours d'agrégation fut prestigieux. Présidé par Orfila, il vit s'affronter comme candidat : Briquet, Foissac, Meniere, Piorry, Requin, Rochoux, Royer-Collard et Trousseau. Une très grande année ! La disparition des archives personnelles et professionnelles de Broussais explique cette gène. Les documents cités ici évoquent la question, sans la résoudre ; ils ramènent à ses héritiers, sa veuve, effacée, et leurs trois fils. Casimir, médecin, en vue en 1839 lorsque la presse publie ses démêlés avec Balzac lors de l'affaire Peytel, était, à la mort de son père, professeur au Val-de-Grâce ; François, également médecin, exerça en province. Émile, avocat et écrivain, apôtre swedenborgien, très lié dès les années 1820 avec Bra, mourut magistrat à Pondichéry en 1852. Si la dispersion des papiers de Broussais semble pour le moment certaine, on apprend que Casimir, exécuteur testamentaire de son père, en avait hérité de même que de sa bibliothèque. Plaidées par des avocats célèbres, les affaires Broussais identifient d'abord les personnes agissant lors des circonstances rapportées troublantes, « les bruits les plus fantaisistes » M. Valentin, François Broussais, empereur de la médecine, ayant entouré la mort de Broussais : les rumeurs de son empoisonnement circulèrent entre deux causes célèbres du genre, les affaires Peytel et Lafarge. Les procès révèlent avant tout la situation … [Click Below for Full Description]

CAPPER, Henry
London: Robert Tyas, 1838. Very good.. Slim duodecimo, folding map; at some point disbound from a larger volume (with over-printed numbers in the top margins), in recent green cloth. Informative emigrants handbook for South Australia, including a folding frontispiece map of the Gulf of St. Vincent with an inset plan of the city of Adelaide.This is the second edition, now considerably enlarged, with pertinent information for those seeking to invest or emigrate in the infant colony. Of some interest is a folding table titled "Statement of ships which have proceeded to South Australia, with the number of labouring emigrants and persons of a superior class, to February, 1838" with annotations in a minute contemporary hand indicating vessels purchased by South Australia Company and their cargo. For example, we learn that the Emma carried 'cattle, sheep, goats &c from Cape Good Hope'.The author was a strong defender of the Wakefield system of utilising the revenue of land sales to fund further emigration, thereby providing abundant labour for investors and ample opportunity for the working classes. Accordingly, this guide concludes with a positive comparison of South Australia to North America from the perspective of emigration.

[MEDHURST] BAXTER, George
London: George Baxter for John Snow, Paternoster Row, 1838. A few faint spots, very good.. Baxter print measuring 200 x 107 mm. (sheet size, with caption). Detailed contemporary colour print depicting the Reverend Walter Medhurst at work with his Chinese assistant Ju Dilang (here anglicised in the caption as Choo-Tih-Lang) at work on their translation of the scriptures into Chinese.Medhurst was an active missionary who worked in China and now best remembered for his translation of the Bible into Chinese, amongst other scholarly works. In an era when Chinese scholars who assisted with translation were rarely acknowledged (often due to their refusal to convert to Christianity), Ju Dilang is an interesting and contentious exception. A native of Guangdong province, Ju Dilang was chosen by Medhurst as his Chinese language teacher and personal secretary. He accompanied Medhurst on his return to England in 1836 to assist in the monumental project of translating the New Testament into Chinese, so earning the informal title 'amanuensis of the sacred scriptures'. Ju Dilang was baptised by Medhurst in July 1838 and appointed Native Assistant in the service of the London Missionary Society. Upon returning to Asia, Ju Dilang accepted a position as a language teacher in Macau but was later dismissed from the Mission congregation on charges of opium smoking - charges he challenged by asserting that the opium came through the hands of ostensibly Christian English traders.This print was produced by George Baxter using his new oil colour-printing process. During his lifetime, Dr. Medhurst en … [Click Below for Full Description]
