Enrichie de plusieurs tableaux statistiques dont un dépliant. Le fameux aliéniste Girard de Cailleux (1814-1884) fut médecin en chef directeur de l'asile d'aliénés d'Auxerre, asile qui servit de modèle aux constructions parisiennes qui suivirent. Il fut également un collaborateur assidu des Annales médico-psychologiques. Girard de Cailleux considérait l'asile comme un moyen de traitement et non comme un abri pour incurables. En cela, il étudia de près l'organisation des asiles et publia de nombreux rapports sur le sujet. Il reforma l'organisation des asiles par-là même. A travers cet ouvrage, l'auteur s'appuie sur les observations faites en qualité de médecin en chef pendant vingt ans afin de proposer des moyens de supprimer ou atténuer les maladies mentales et nerveuses.

        Water-Babies: A Fairy Tale for a Land-Baby, The

      London & Cambridge: Macmillan & Co., 1863. "Just Another Destitute Little Chimney-Sweep"or "The Oddest Fairy Tale That There Has Ever Been...A Near Fine Copy Of The First Edition of The Water-BabiesKINGSLEY, Charles. The Water-Babies: A Fairy Tale for a Land-Baby. With two illustrations by J. Noel Paton, R.S.A. London & Cambridge: Macmillan and Co., 1863.First edition, second state. Small square octavo (8 x 6 1/8 inches; 203 x 155 mm.). [viii], [3], 4-350, [1 advertisements], 1 blank. Without the 'L'Envoi' leaf which was canceled early on by Kingsley. Inserted frontispiece and full-page illustration opposite p. 145. With eight large engraved initial chapter letters. Original dark green fine-grain cloth, front cover with gilt triple-rule border enclosing a pictorial gilt center device depicting Tom, a Fish and a Sea-Horse. Spine ruled and lettered in gilt. Dark brown coated endpapers, top edge gilt. With the binders ticket of Burn of Kirby St., on the rear pastedown. Unidentified rectangular bookplate on front paste-down. A couple of small and very light spots on front cover, inner hinges with partial expert and almost invisible repairs. Otherwise a superlative copy, the gilt bright and fresh, of this scarce children's classic. Contemporary neat ink inscription on verso of front end-paper dated "Xmas 1863." Housed in a fleece-lined, quarter green morocco over green cloth clamshell case. "Charles Kingsley was a rural vicar in Victorian England, and the "land-baby" of the sub-title was his youngest son, five-year-old Grenville Arthur. In writing this fairy tale about the underwater adventures of Tom, a chimney-sweep's climbing-boy, Kingsley uttered many a sermon. But along with his zeal for Anglican Christianity he also brought into play his enthusiasm for nature and his strong sense of indignation at the Victorian practice of using small children as laborers. The difference between the first and second states is solely the removal of the L'Envoi leaf. The first state "contains a leaf bearing a poem, L'Envoi. Kingsley had second thoughts about this while the book was being printed, and he had the leaf removed, but not before a few hundred copies of the book had already gone forth." (Gottlieb, Early Children's Books and Their Illustration, 113).Grolier 100, 34.

        Collection of six Civil War letter from a soldier who served from April of 1861 until he was killed in action in June of 1863

      Washington, DC 1863 - Six letters to family members at home, four from 1861 and two from 1863. One of the letters has its original envelope. All of the letters are complete except one that is missing its final page. The handwriting is legible. Three of the letters are written in ink; three are written in light pencil and take some effort to read. All are in nice shape. Transcripts of each will be provided with purchase. Spinney enlisted on 16 April 1861 (just four days after the bombardment of Fort Sumter) and was assigned to the 6th Massachusetts Infantry. The next day, the 6th boarded a train bound for Washington, DC. to defend the federal government which was surrounded by the hostile slave states of Maryland and Virginia. When the unit arrived in Baltimore on 19 April, it was met by a mobs of hostile citizens. Worse, it found that city ordinances prohibited steam engines from operating within the city, so the train cars had to be pulled across town by horses. After the mob blocked the tracks with sand and ship anchors, four companies dismounted from the cars and began to march their way to safety. The officers ordered the soldiers to load their weapons, but not use them unless attacked. The soldiers found that obstacles had been laid in their path and they were soon bombarded by rocks and stones and beaten with clubs. Eventually, pistols were fired into the ranks by the rioters and the soldiers returned fire while fighting their way through the mob. Twelve civilians were killed in the battle along with four soldiers from the regiment. When the train finally in Washington, it was met by two Massachusetts women who had been living in the city and came to the station to do what they could for the injured. Clara Barton and her sister took 40 of the men into their home to provide care, and a legendary nursing career began. Although, Spinney's first letter mentions neither the riot nor Clara Barton, it is clear that he was affected by the bloodshed, noting to his brother, "I'm probably as yellow as you call it as John is." In a later letter he further remarks, "We have the satisfaction of knowing by our forcing our way through Baltimore and getting in the Capitol on Friday night, that we saved it from the Seccessionists (sic) . . . In 6 hours more there would have been a force sufficient in Washington to have disputed our entrance." Spinney's letters contain a wealth of detailed information about receiving his Zouave uniform, camp-life, needs of a soldier, and medical care. He also laments alcohol's widespread use: "We have plenty who will do most anything for liquor . . .who are allways (sic) in want of it. They take all sorts of risks and means to get it. . . . Some sell shoes, shirts, etc. I did not join any Sons of Temperance, or such like and I might not have refused to take it when offered, for my refusal has been taken as an insult many times. . . . . I have laid in the mud and water, wet through, been overboard, been in the sun, when it was 125° in the shade and yet I have passed through it all as well, if not, better than those who drink whenever they can get it. Liquor is not needful for a Soldier. So it has been proved to me by my own experience." Spinney eventually transferred to the 1st Massachusetts Cavalry and was initially very proud of his unit: "The whole Cavalry of the Potomac . . . was reviewed by the President. . . . The 1st. Mass. took the palm, as usual. . . . Our Regiment is said to be the finest one in the Service." However he eventually becomes despondent about the quality of replacement officers and their effect on morale and unit effectiveness, even to the point of fantasizing about killing his commander: "Nigger Andrews [Massachusetts Governor John Andrews was an ardent abolitionist and was actively recruiting freedmen from throughout the North to staff one African-American regiment, the 54th Massachusetts] has sent us a lot of Lieuts that don't know as much as some of our Rams at the present time. . . .

        Heinrich Kley: Spukgestalten (Originalzeichnung)

      - Farbkreiden, Gouache und Tusche auf Karton. 17,8 x 12 cm. Provenienz: Nachlass des Künstlers Privatsammlung. Biografie Heinrich Kley 1863 Karlsruhe - 1945 München Nach Beendigung des Studiums an der Karlsruher Kunstschule 1885 ist Heinrich Kley darum bemüht, sich im Kunstleben seiner badischen Heimatstadt zu etablieren. Zwar erhält er immer wieder Aufträge von ortsansässigen Privatpersonen, Behörden sowie Unternehmen, engagiert sich in der lokalen Künstlerschaft und nimmt an Ausstellungen teil, doch bleiben größere Erfolge letztlich aus. Diese stellen sich erst nach 1900 ein, als das Unternehmen Krupp in Essen auf Kleys Fähigkeiten als Schilderer topographischer Sujets aufmerksam wird. Durch die Verbindung von zeichnerischer Präzision und koloristischem Feingefühl gelingt es ihm, die spezifischen atmosphärischen Stimmungen in der Welt der Gußstahlfabriken, Hüttenwerke und Schiffswerften einzufangen. Seine um impressionistische Elemente bereicherte realistische Kunstauffassung überzeugt bald auch andere große Unternehmen, so dass Kley innerhalb weniger Jahre den Ruf eines erstrangigen und vielbeschäftigten Industriemalers genießt. Der breiten Öffentlichkeit wird Kley durch die Mitarbeit an den Zeitschriften Simplicissimus und Jugend bekannt, die ihn 1909 zum Umzug nach München bewegen. Bis zum Ersten Weltkrieg veröffentlichen sie hunderte seiner humoristischen, satirischen und grotesken Federzeichnungen. Themen der Gesellschaftspolitik, des technischen Fortschritts sowie des Verhältnisses zwischen Mann und Frau erfasst er mit phantasiereichen Bildideen, psychologischem Einfühlungsvermögen und unverwechselbarer Virtuosität. Mit gleicher Könnerschaft charakterisiert er menschliche Verhaltensweisen durch Mensch-Tier-Vergleiche pointiert und unterhaltsam. Obwohl es nach dem Ersten Weltkrieg ruhig um den von Schicksalsschlägen getroffenen Künstler wird, erfahren seine Federzeichnungen eine erstaunliche Rezeption in den USA. In den späten 1930er Jahren wird Walt Disney auf sie aufmerksam und nutzt sie fortan als wichtige Inspirationsquelle für seine Zeichentrickfilme. So lebt Kleys Kunst in den Figuren von „Dumbo“, „Fantasia“ und „Dschungelbuch“ weiter und begeistert weltweit ein Millionenpublikum.
