        Chapter Two. The Lakes. Summer on the Lakes, in 1843

      Sumnerville, MI. 2014. Artist&#39;s book, unique but the second in a series of two containing the text of Chapter Two of Margaret Fuller&#39;s first book, an account of her journey from Boston through the Great Lakes, this on Epson Premium Presentation Matte paper, with artist&#39;s statement on first page of text, signed and dated by the artist in pencil on the back flyleaf. Page size: 5.75 x 6 x 4 inches; 246 leaves. Box size: 9 x 7.5 x 6 inches. Bound by the artist: sewn in gold cloth over boards, green brocade cloth over boards panels affixed to front and back, decorated with green and gold crystal beads on spine and brass nail heads in all-over studded pattern, title and author printed in black on sepia photograph of water inset into middle of front cover, handmade green paper endpapers, green and white headbands, wrapped in green and gold damask cloth sling with gold beading and braid with fringe each 1/2 inch wide at either end with which to lift book from box, housed in custom-made silk cloth and paper over boards footed and lidded box with TruVue non-reflective glass insert in lid, the sides of the box lined with gold cloth over which are affixed images of Chicago as it was in the first half of the 19th century, old map of the Great Lakes and image of Native Americans, and the interior of the box with gold silk insert at bottom; sides and lid lined with black and gold hand-made paper. The box sits on base of gold fabric over boards and set on gold-gilt ball feet. & & Eugenie Torgerson has used the text from Margaret Fuller&#39;s first book, SUMMER ON THE LAKES, IN 1843 for her inspired images of the western prairie that was Chicago in 1843. Ms. Torgerson created digital compositions from her own photographs, pastel drawings and contemporary materials which she printed with an Epson Stylus Photo R2400 with Epson UltraChrome K3 ink on Yupo, a 100% Polypropylene, neutral pH, acid-freed substrate which she then waxed. The text is also printed with Epson UltraChrome K3 ink in 10pt. Times New Roman with the titles in Goudy Old Style in 12, 14 and 18pt. The transcription pages are printed in Bickham Script Pro, based on the lettering of 18th century writing as rendered in the engravings of George Bickham&#39;s THE UNIVERSAL PENMAN. The book combines text broken up with images of the prairie and micro-shots of Lake Michigan. Ms. Torgerson has presented Fuller&#39;s text almost horizontally and broken up the black and white text with images of the prairie throughout the year. The text also appears, here and there, as transcriptions printed in script, viewed only as magnified phrases rather than a complete sentences or paragraphs. The pages of images, then transcribed text, printed in script and manipulated on various backgrounds, as well as the actual text, are interspersed with page cream, green or red hand-made papers. There are also varnished sheets of clear paper separating the images and text that also serve to obscure the view of the preceding and succeeding images - much as the spray of water would do. & & Fuller&#39;s brilliant book is much more than an account of her voyage with fellow Transcendentalists, Sarah Clarke and her brother James Freeman Clarke, to Niagara Falls, Mackinac Island, and Rock River, Illinois. It is as much a meditation on her own life as well as life in America. In this second chapter, Fuller travels from Niagara Falls to Chicago, with stops along the way. She notes, "At first, the prairie seemed to speak of the very desolation of dullness...But after I had rode out and seen the sun set with that calmness seen only in the prairies...I began to love it because I began to know the scene, and shrank no longer from &#39;the encircling vastness.&#39;" Her reaction to Chicago is not limited to the beauty of the landscape. She notes, "There can be no two places in the world more completely thoroughfares than this place [Chicago] and Buffalo. They are the two correspondent valves that open and shut all the time, the life-blood rushes from east to west, and back again from west to east." She writes about the land, "In Chicago I first saw the beautiful prairie flowers. They were in their glory the first ten days we were there - The golden and the flame-like flowers." Torgerson&#39;s images combine with text to form a book and book sculpture, recalling another earlier time but still completely contemporary. <br>See an <A HREF= http://www.bookrouter.com/im/juvelisbks/10783.jpg >Image.</A><br>

        JUDAH&#146;S LION

      New York; John S. Taylor. 1843. Hardcover. Publishers cloth. 12mo. 358 pages. 19 cm. First US edition. Singerman 0833. This novel is considered to be the first English language &#145;Zionist Novel&#146; (it predates George Eliot&#146;s &#145;Daniel Deronda&#146; by thirty years); the story concerns the return of an English Jew (Alick) to the Holy Land; it binds together English and Jewish history.This was the last novel the author wrote. Charlotte Elizabeth Tonna (1790-1846) wrote on the plight of English factory workers, was well known in her time for her novels and her Orange-Protestant essays and poems, was passionate about gardening, a pioneer of deaf education, and also wrote children&#146;s stories. In her later years she defended the rights of Judaism, and in her last three years was a close friend of Moses Montefiore, owing to her fundraising on behalf of the Jews of Mogador in 1844 (she raised the most money of anyone for the Jewish community in the besieged Moroccan coastal city), her public protest against the policies of Tsar Nicholas I towards Jews, and her 1844 letter to the Bishop of Jerusalem, entitled &#145;Israel&#146;s Ordinances.&#146; &#147;As Tonna&#146;s health deteriorated rapidly, the Montefiores became devoted friends. When she set out on her final journey to Ramsgate from London, it was Montefiore who bade her farewell at the train station and handed her a basket of grapes.&#147; (Pg. 215; &#145;Moses Montefiore: Jewish Liberator, Imperial Hero&#146;; by Abigail Green). Her work, "Days of Old,&#146; by Charlotte Elizabeth (Mrs. Tonner)&#148; was part of the sixth volume published by the American Jewish Publication Society in 1847 (Jewish Miscellany no. VI; which also includes two works by Isaac Leeser, &#147;Rachel Levi, A Tale&#148; and &#147;The Jews and Their Religion&#148;), two years after the society was founded by Isaac Leeser (EJ 1906; American Jewish Publication Society).

        Neurypnology; or the rationale of nervous sleep

      London: John Churchill, 1843. <p>Braid, James (1795?-1860). Neurypnology; or, the rationale of nervous sleep, considered in relation with animal magnetism. xxii, 265, [1, addenda and errata]pp. London: John Churchill; Edinburgh: Adam & Charles Black, 1843. 170 x 107 mm. Original green cloth, blindstamped, title in gilt on spine, tiny split in front hinge, small stain on back cover; boxed. Very good copy. Gift inscription dated 1845 on front free endpaper.</p><p>First Edition of the first full-length scientific treatise on what is now known as hypnotism. Braid, a Manchester surgeon, began a scientific investigation of mesmerism in the early 1840s and soon became convinced that the effects produced did not depend on a physical &#147;magnetic influence&#148; passing from practitioner to subject, but instead were subjective phenomena caused by physiological changes in the person mesmerized (he would later reject his early physiological theory for others that gave greater recognition to suggestibility and psychic state). When he published Neurypnology Braid did not yet have a full understanding of the psychological processes involved in hypnosis, believing that hypnotic phenomena were produced by functional changes in the nervous, muscular, circulatory and respiratory systems. However, he did recognize that hypnosis was a subjective phenomenon, dependent entirely on the state of mind of the hypnotized and not on any mystical fluid or occult magical power wielded by the hypnotizer. Braid&#39;s methods of hypnosis were published in France circa 1860, where they exerted an important influence on the work of Broca, Charcot, Liébeault and Bernheim, whose teachings in turn influenced the work of Sigmund Freud.

        The Zoist: A journal of cerebral physiology & mesmerism. 13 vols. (1 vol. rebound)

I (1843/44) &#150; XIII (1855/56) [all published]. London: Hippolyte Baillière, 1844-56. 209 x 135 mm. 13 volumes, bound in 19th century half calf, marbled boards (except for Vol. VIII in 20th century quarter calf, marbled boards), some wear and chipping, a few hinges tender, hinges in Vol. XIII repaired with glue. Very good set. </p><p>First Edition of &#147;the most important source about British mesmerism of the period&#148; (Gault, p. 206), and an invaluable reference for contemporary ideas and developments not only in mesmerism (hypnosis) but also in phrenology, neurology and psychiatry. The journal was founded and edited by Dr. John Elliotson, Britain&#146;s leading advocate of mesmerism, who in 1843 had performed the first surgical operation on a patient anesthetized via hypnosis. &#147;It was round The Zoist, and hence of course round Elliotson, that British mesmerism centered during its period of most active expansion, from 1843 until the early 1850s. Popular practitioners looked up to it, even though they perhaps resented its lofty tone. More serious and more educated adherents subscribed, contributed and sent in cases; interested outsiders turned to it to find out more. . . . Setting aside articles on phrenology, mesmeric cures of disease fill the greatest percentage of its pages, followed by cases of surgical operations performed with mesmeric anesthesia&#148; (Gault, pp. 207-208). One of the most prolific contributors to the journal was Scottish surgeon James Esdaile, who performed over a hundred painless operations on mesmerized patients in the 1840s while stationed in India; a partial list of these operations, including the amputation of an arm and breast and the removal of 17 scrotal tumors, is included in the 1846 volume of The Zoist. Crabtree, Animal Magnetism, Early Hypnotism, and Psychical Research 1766-1925, no. 490. Gault, A History of Hypnotism, pp. 205-208.</p>

        Auf einer Rasenbank am Hang sitzendes strickendes Bauernmädchen, rechts im Mittelgrund Frauen auf der Bleiche, im Hintergrund Dächer und Kirchturm einer hessischen Ortschaft.

      . Öl, auf Leinwand, rechts unten signiert und datiert "P. Rumpf 1843". 41,5:37 cm. Provenienz: Aus deutscher oder österreichischer Privatsammlung. Vergleichsliteratur: Ausst. Katalog: Philipp Rumpf (1821-1896). Kronberg/Ts., Receptur, 1996, Nr. 1, Farbtafel 1, Nr. 22, Abb. S. 69. Unser Bild zeigt eine für die bäuerliche Genremalerei typische Darstellung und stammt aus der frühen von Jakob Becker beeinflußten Schaffensphase. Auch in Komposition und Farbgebung wird dessen Einfluß und der der Düsseldorfer Schule deutlich. Das Motiv des am Boden sitzenden Bauernmädchens geht ebenfalls auf die Motivwelt Jakob Beckers zurück.. Philipp Rumpf, Sohn eines Frankfurter Konditors, durchlief eine breit gefächerte künstlerische Ausbildung. Da er zum Nachfolger im Geschäft seines Vaters bestimmt war, studierte er neben seiner Lehre als Konditor in seiner Geburtsstadt am Städelschen Kunstinstitut. 1835 besuchte er den Elementarunterricht in freier Handzeichnung bei Karl Friedrich Wendelstadt (1786-1840), 1836-1838 den Elementarunterricht im Modellieren bei dem Bildhauer Johann Nepomuk Zwerger (1796-1868), seit 1838 die Malklasse von Friedrich Maximilian Hessemer (1800-1860) und dann den Unterricht von Heinrich Franz Gaudenz von Rustige (1810-1890). 1842 wurde er schließlich Meisterschüler des aus Düsseldorf kommenden Genremalers Jakob Becker (1810-1872). Daneben spielte die Bekanntschaft mit Jakob Fürchtegott Dielmann (1809-1885) für seine künstlerische Entwicklung eine nicht unbedeutende Rolle. Nach Abschluß des Studiums mietete er gemeinsam mit Anton Burger (1824-1905) ein Atelier - eine lebenslange Freundschaft verband die Malerkollegen. Seit 1846 sind erste gemeinsame Fahrten nach Kronberg zu belegen, wo Rumpf zunächst die Sommermonate verbrachte und seit 1873 ein Atelier in der Kronberger Burg unterhielt. Zum Lebensunterhalt erteilte er seit 1844 erfolgreich Privatunterricht, richtete dann eine Schule für Zeichnen, Aquarell- und Ölmalerei ein; daneben unternahm er Reisen nach München, Dresden, Paris und Oberitalien. Neben Ausstellungsbeteiligungen in Frankfurt zeigte er seine Arbeiten in Hamburg, München, Dresden und Wien. Rumpf zählt neben Dielmann und Burger zu den Hauptvertretern der Kronberger Malerkolonie. Sein Schaffensschwerpunkt lag auf Gemälden, Aquarellen, Pastellen und Radierungen mit Interieur- und Genreszenen, zumeist mit Kindern, Mädchen und jungen Frauen, zudem malte er Landschaften und Bildnisse.

        Ponte Nomentano in der Römischen Campagna mit Staffagen links auf dem Weg.

      . Bleistift und Pinsel in Dunkelbraun, auf cremefarbenem Velin. Ca. 15,5:25 cm. Verso zwei Entwurfskizzen südlicher Landschaften, rechts unten datiert "9/5 66.". Am Oberrand auf Untersatz montiert. Provenienz: Sammlung Joseph Heilmair (1843-1923). Rechts und unten ungleich beschnitten.. Die frei und flott gemalte Entwurfzeichnung stammt sicher aus einem Skizzenbuch. In der Städtischen Galerie Würzburg befindet sich eine Bleistiftzeichnung von 1866, die ebenfalls den Ponte Nomentano und die Römische Campagna zeigt, nur vom näheren Standpunkt aus (vgl. Ausst. Katalog: August Wilhelm Geist (1835-1868), Städtische Galerie Würzburg, Würzburg 1985, Abb. 38, S. 52 und S. 67). Aus einer Künstlerfamilie stammend, nahm Geist zunächst Unterricht bei seinem Vater, dem Würzburger Maler A. Geist (1803-1860). 1848-1850 setzte er an der Städtischen Gewerbeschule und 1850-1853 am Polytechnischen Zentralverein seine Ausbildung fort und beendete sie 1853 in München bei dem Landschaftsmaler F. Bamberger (1814-1873). 1854 unternahm er zum Landschaftsstudium eine Rhönreise, da er vom Würzburger Polytechnischen Verein den Auftrag erhalten hatte, Landschaftsveduten aus der Gegend anzufertigen. 1855 kehrte er nach München zurück. Es folgten Motive aus der fränkischen Schweiz und vom Starnberger See. Starken Einfluß übte die Malerei J.W. Schirmers (1807-1863) auf ihn aus, dessen Werke er 1859 in Karlsruhe studierte. 1861 unternahm er eine Rheinreise. In dieser Zeit schloß er Freundschaft mit H. von Marees (1837-1887), den er 1861 auf dem Weg nach Köln und Antwerpen in Koblenz besuchte und mit dem er die Reise nach Köln fortsetzte. Eine schwere Erkrankung brachte 1864/1865 eine Reise nach Reichenhall. Obwohl der Aufenthalt keine wirkliche Besserung bewirkt hatte, ging er im darauffolgenden Jahr nach Rom. Dort unterhielt er gemeinsam mit F. Preller d.J. (1838-1901) ein Atelier. 1867 kehrte er nach München zurück. Geist zählt sicher zu den bedeutendsten Landschaftsmalern Mainfrankens, wenn auch sein früher Tod im Alter von 33 Jahren als Folge einer wohl langjährigen Tuberkulose die vielversprechende Malerlaufbahn jäh beendete.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Wiesbaden, 18. XI. 1843.. 1½ SS. auf Doppelblatt. 4to. Mit eh. Adresse (Faltbrief).. An den Sänger Ludwig Cramolini (1805-1884) in Darmstadt: "So eben von Frankfurt zurückgekehrt, wo ich einige Tage zubrachte, erhalte ich zu meinem größten Erstaunen ein Schreiben von Dir, das vom 16. Okt. datiert ist [...] Dies zu meiner Rechtfertigung, da Du wahrscheinlich inzwischen gedacht haben wirst: 'Der Frank ist ein Flegel, der mir nicht antwortet.' Die Unpässlichkeit meiner Frau hat sich seither als Schwangerschaft herausgestellt und sie mußte somit die ehrenvollen Einladungen, die ihr von Mannheim, Stuttgart und Prag wurden, ablehnen, da ihr der Arzt fürs Erste das Auftreten verbothen hat, was ihr um so unangenehmer ist, als sie sich brillant bei Stimme fühlt. Von Mangold habe ich ein Schreiben erhalten [...] worin er meine Frau eine Gastrolle biethet. Du siehst wohl ein, daß es meiner Frau das Ehrgefühl verbothen haben würde, selbst wenn sie singen dürfte, eine Gastrolle anzunehmen. In etwa 3-4 Wochen wird sie wieder kampffähig sein und wenn sich dann Gelegenheit zum Gastspiele findet, wird sie mit Freuden wieder thätig sein [...] Dräxler[-Manfred] trägt mir auf, Dich zu grüßen [...]". - Gustav von Frank leitete von 1841 bis 1843 das Theater in Pest. Von 1845 bis 1847 Redakteur der "Wiener Zeitschrift für Kunst, Literatur und Mode", wurde er 1848 Schriftleiter des "Wiener Bürgerblattes" (später "Wiener Demokratisches Bürgerblatt"). Er mußte als Mitglied der Akademischen Legion nach der Niederwerfung der Revolution 1848 über Leipzig nach London fliehen, wo er in Armut seinem Leben ein Ende setzte. - Bl. 2 mit kleinem Ausschnitt durch Siegelbruch;

        Secondary Towns Association, formed for the purchasing of one or more special survey or surveys of land in South Australia, for Sites for Secondary Towns

      London: J. C. Hailes, 1843. Octavo, three folding plans, ALS to Thomas Burrows (1841) loosely inserted, ALS to John Burrows (1872) tipped in, contemporary ink notations on two of the folding plans and rear endpapers noting country and town acres, ownership signature of John Burrows 1855; very good in the original brown cloth, gilt, crudely lettered to spine, colonial bookplate of Charles R.J. Glover. Land speculation in Adelaide and NZ in the 1840s. A remarkable copy of this rare book on the second phase of South Australian settlement, sent to prospective settlers the Burrows family, and with associated material relating to their land speculations tipped in. The land holdings they took up are marked on two of the more detailed maps, and there is also an 1841 letter from a strong proponent of the various Wakefield schemes, Daniel Riddiford, having the &#39;pleasure to advise you, of having made the selection of your two Town acres, also one country section&#39; in New Zealand. The book with its three fine maps is rare in its own right - Ferguson agreed with an early bookseller&#39;s note that it was "exceedingly scarce" - but to have a copy with such remarkable provenance is very exciting as a glimpse into how the early settlers were kept apprised of their prospects, not least because the Burrows family were evidently getting involved in some rather complicated empire building. On the &#39;Plan of the Two special surveys on the River Light&#39; there are a series of manuscript notes relating to J. Burrows and Jane Burrows (his wife?). Similarly, the &#39;Plan of the Special Survey on the River Murray&#39; has notes relating to John Burrows. Also tipped in at the end is an 1872 letter from one James Walsh to Burrows, regarding lots in the "township of Victoria". The back endpapers are covered in notes and clippings relating to land allotments. The letter from Daniel Riddiford is particularly striking. Riddiford (1814-1875) was an enthusiastic proponent of Wakefield colonisation schemes who emigrated to Wellington, New Zealand, in 1840 as agent in the New Zealand Company: &#39;His duties were to receive immigrants on landing and to provide temporary habitation, particularly for women and children and any sick&#39; (Encyclopedia of New Zealand). The letter is addressed to Thomas Burrows, evidently the patriarch of the family, and therefore provides a substantive glimpse into how the early Wakefield schemes worked, noting his purchase of town lots 367 and 435, and no. 44 on the Hutt River valley ("the land in this place is rich, the timber fine…"). The note also comments that Burrows&#39; second country selection can not yet be made because the land is not ready.

Rottmanns, nach Rom, das er über Zwischenstationen in Venedig und Florenz im Oktober 1853 erreichte. Er blieb dort bis 1880. Während seines Aufenthaltes unternahm er Reisen nach Neapel und Capri und sandte von dort aus Zeichnungen an die Leipziger Illustrierte Zeitung zur Reproduktion. Auch zeichnete er 1857/58 eine Reihe italienischer Ansichten für das Reisealbum der Kaiserin von Russland. 1880 kehrte er nach Schlesien zurück, zog dann nach Berlin. 1907/08 unternahm er noch einmal eine Reise nach Rom.

        The Naturalist&#39;s Library

      Edinburgh: Lizars, 1843. 40 volumes, small octavo, each volume with portrait frontispiece & engraved and printed title-page; numerous attractive steel-engraved handcoloured plates throughout (total of xxx), a fine set in a handsome uniform nineteenth-century half calf binding, banded spines with double crimson and green labels. Natural history of the world in 40 volumes. A fine and attractively bound set of this popular mid nineteenth-century natural history encyclopaedia, including a rich representation of Australasian species. Each volume also features a frontispiece and introduction devoted to the life of an eminent naturalist, with good biographies for example of Sir Joseph Banks and François Péron, as well as John Ray, Thomas Pennant and Thomas Bewick. One volume is entirely devoted to Australian fauna, and includes 30 plates depicting possums, marsupials, kangaroos, native mice, koalas, platypus and the now extinct Tasmanian Tiger. Descriptions and illustrations of other Australian species are scattered throughout the entire work, for example a volume devoted to dogs includes the &#39;New Holland Dingo&#39; with a striking coloured plate alongside a fine engraving of the skull of the dingo compared to that of a jackal. In particular, the fourteen volumes of the series devoted to birds are well stocked with Australian species, and are especially good on parrots, with splendid illustrations of cockatoos, galahs and lorikeets. Sir William Jardine was born in 1800 and developed a keen interest in natural history during his childhood on Jardine Hall, a magnificent estate in Dumfriesshire. A gifted anatomist, Jardine travelled widely in search of specimens for his private museum, beginning with a three year investigation into the life cycle of British salmon and trout. Further adventures took him throughout continental Europe and later the Caribbean. Through these travels and his ceaseless correspondence with fellow naturalists across the globe, Jardine&#39;s museum became one of the significant British private natural history collections of the era, boasting over 6,000 species of birds alone. The Naturalist&#39;s Library was an immensely successful publication, and offered the general public a beautiful and informative encyclopaedia of the natural world at an affordable price. Jardine wrote 15 of the volumes himself, and contributed many of the biographical introductions in the series. The work is renowned for the quality of the steel engravings by William Home Lizars, the brother of Jardine&#39;s wife Jean. Complete sets of this work are uncommon; Ferguson, for example, records only scattered volumes from the series (see 2314a, 3622b, 2766b, etc.).

First Hawaiian Bible Issued as a Single Publication. The first full Hawaiian language Bible: the single volume incorporates both Old and New Testaments. This combined edition is a monumental work of translation and scholarship, the fruit of years of labour by members of the American Bible Society at the Mission Presses of Oahu and Honolulu. The first native language scriptures printed in the Hawaiian islands date from 1827. The first Hawaiian printing of the complete edition of the New Testament appeared in 1835, with the Old Testament following in 1838. This is the first printing of the complete approved text of both Testaments issued as a single continuously paginated book. Both Testaments have separately printed title pages, the Old Testament bearing the Oahu Mission Press imprint while the New Testament title page (comprising pp.1129-30) states this section was printed at Honolulu. (Confusingly, the verso of the Old Testament title page is printed &#39;Ka Lua O Ke Pai Ana&#39; (&#39;the second printing&#39;), however, this refers to the only other printing of the entire Old Testament in 1838 at the same press). Forbes notes that this Bible formed a compact edition intended for family and devotional use (a larger format version with reset title-pages was also issued in 1843 for church pulpits). The typography is skilfully composed and unhurried, and the present copy is a beautifully preserved example of the fine work of the Mission Press.

        Icones Piscium, or Plates of Rare Fishes. Part I [all published]

      London: R. & J.E. Taylor, 1843. Folio, with five beautiful hand coloured plates; the text unopened; some very faint marks, a handsome copy in the original printed paper wrappers, manuscript correction, as always, "five" to front wrapper, with the printed "four" struck through; housed in a cloth solander case. Fish caught on HMS Beagle. Very rare: the first separately published work on Australian fishes, in exemplary original condition. The particularly beautiful plates are after &#39;drawings from the portfolio of James B. Emery, Esq., late first lieutenant of the Beagle surveying vessel employed on the western coasts of Australia&#39;. James Barker Emery (c.1794-1889) joined the Royal Navy in 1808 and was first lieutenant aboard the Beagle during her survey of the Australian coast from 1837 to 1841. Eleven of the species figured here were taken off the north-west coast, the other from Safety Bay in South Australia. This work was produced by Sir John Richardson, who recognised the terrific amateur talent of Emery. Richardson achieved his fame as surgeon and naturalist on the two arctic land explorations led by John Franklin. He went on to a career as a great ichthyologist, editing many mid-nineteenth century natural history works. In his later career (Richardson was still helping the third Franklin expedition at 60 years of age) he became the Chief Medical Officer at Haslar Hospital.

        Le Hachych

      Paris: Paulin, 1843. Octavo, ms. inscription on title; a couple of dampstains in margins at start, otherwise a fine copy in the original printed yellow wrappers, worn at spine. Presentation copy of the very rare first edition of this utopian hymn to hashish. In the early 1840s the French psychiatrist Moreau had begun studying the possible therapeutic applications of hashish, in the process installing himself as purveyor to the famous Club des Hachichins, an elegant coterie presided over by author and dilettante Gautier. But it fell to the well-known surgeon and republican socialist Lallemand to write the first European work to use the drug as its basic plot device. The work purports to be a translation from an Arabic manuscript which the author has discovered in his cabin whilst sailing for Marseille. It veers between the sensational and the doctrinal, particularly in its fundamental conceit that hashish not only provides consolation for the present, but an intimation and aspect of the future. This copy is inscribed by Lallemand to "Monsieur Breton", in distinctive sepia ink, with a flourish that zig-zags across the word Hachych: this must be a deliberate echo of the closing lines of the novel: &#39;Il n&#39;existe, d&#39;ailleurs, d&#39;autre trace de signature qu&#39;un énorme zigzag allant jusqu&#39;au bas de la page, et annoncant, selon toute apparence, un violent désir de s&#39;étendre sur le matelas dont il a été parlé&hellip;&#39;. The book had some success and was republished in 1848 almost identically, but with the extra title Révolutions Politiques et Sociales.
