        Des maladies mentales et des asiles d'aliénés. Leçons cliniques & considérations générales

      Paris, J.B. Baillière et Fils, 1864. 1864, 1864, in-8, (4), LXIX, (1 bl.), 796pp, demi-basane marron, dos à nerfs, Planche dépliante représentant le plan de l'asile d'Illenau, gravée par E. Wormser. PREMIERE EDITION. Jean-Pierre Falret (1794-1870), élève de Pinel et d'Esquirol, fondateur de l'asile de Vanves avec F. Voisin (1822), visita de nombreux asiles en Angleterre, en Irlande et dans le duché de Bade, dont il décrit ici l'établissement d'Illenau. Cet ouvrage est la réunion en un seul volume de travaux publiés à divers intervalles dans des recueils différents. Falret y expose sa théorie mixte sur les maladies mentales, héritée de l'école anatomique et de l'école psychologique. "Nous croyons fermement à l'existence d'une modification organique quelconque dans toute maladie mentale; mais nous regardons comme secondaires les lésions tangibles et visibles constatées (..) chez les aliénés et n'attachons d'importance véritable qu'aux lésions initiales encore inconnues, soustraites jusqu'ici aux recherches du scalpel et même du microscope. (..) Nous considérons comme très digne d'attention l'étude minutieuse des phénomènes psychiques des aliénés, (..) mais nous regardons comme stérile l'étude des lésions isolées des facultés (..) et concentrons tout notre intérêt sur l'observation clinique des états psychiques complexes, tels qu'ils existent chez les aliénés". Cachet ex-libris du Dr Carrier de Lyon. Bon exemplaire. Charnières légèrement frottées et petites griffures. Étiquette en pied du dos. Semelaigne I, p. 179

        The Small House at Allington.

      London: Smith, Elder, 1864. Two volumes, octavo, with 18 illustrations by Millais; later half dark blue morocco by Roger de Coverly & Sons. First book edition of this novel which originally appeared in the Cornhill Magazine for September 1862 and ran until April 1864. With two of the points sometimes noted in volume 1 ("hobbledehoya" p. 33; and p. 70 mispaged "0").The fifth of the Barsetshire Chronicles, and written at the height of Trollope's popularity, it follows two of his most endearing heroines, Lillian and Bell Dale, in a lively tale of thwarted and unrequited love. The novel continues Trollope's association with John Everett Millais, and shows a distinct evolution from the plates in Orley Farm, in particular the more confident use of contrast, as well as much finer detailing in the faces, best seen in the pre-Raphaelite profile of the heroine in the absurdly titled 'Please Ma'am, can we have the peas to shell?'.With the bookplates of Oliver Brett.

        Printed Obituary announcing the death of the Pacific explorer Dupetit-Thouars.

      Paris: 1864. Sheet of laid paper 264 x 210 mm.,very good. Rare obituary notice for Dupetit-Thouars, the Pacific voyager, who died at Paris on 16 March 1864.'Dupetit-Thouars's account of his stay in California, in 1837, is one of the most important and complete records of the Mexican period. In 1838, the Vénus made a run for Easter Island, further investigated the coast of South America, then sailed for the Galápagos and Marquesas Islands, Tahiti and New Zealand. At Tahiti the expedition forced Queen Pomaré to write a letter to the King of France apologising for mistreatment of French priests, to pay an indemnity, and to salute the French flag. He had also made a treaty with Kamehameha III of Hawaii. After visits to Sydney and Mauritius, the ship sailed home, arriving after a voyage of thirty months... ' (Hill). His voyage account was most significant as regards the history of Hawaii.Such sheets are exceedingly fragile and ephemeral: we recently had a similar sheet for the Baudin voyage veteran Milius. Old folds and a few very small chips, very good.

        Further Papers on the Subject of Convict Discipline and Transportation...

      London: Eyre and Spottiswoode for HMSO, 1863, 1864. Tall quarto volume containing two above-titled publications relating to convict transportation; bound with other material related to Scottish prisons, Poor Relief and other legal matters; all in fine condition, green cloth with red leather spine label. A fascinating selection of documents relating to the last years of convict life in Australia.This collection of bound parliamentary papers contains two publications titled 'Further Papers on the Subject of Convict Discipline and Transportation' dated July 1863 and February 1864 respectively. Both print a selection of correspondence between Australian Governors and the Secretary of State regarding the convict system. At this stage transportation had ceased to all colonies excepting Western Australia where it continued on a limited scale until 1867.Accordingly, these two publications form a detailed record of the final years of the convict system in Western Australia. Aside from discussion of finance and logistics, several of Governor Hampton's dispatches concern the selection of men best suited to the conditions of his colony. Much of the success of transportation to Western Australia lay with the selection of men suitable for assigned labour and the relatively lenient ticket-of-leave system here practised (in contrast to the indiscriminate transportation of large numbers of felons to Van Diemen's Land in the 1840s that caused widespread social upheaval and disruption). Of additional interest is a dispatch titled 'Breaking up of the convict establishment at Bermuda, and transfer of Prisoners to Western Australia' that includes correspondence between the Governor of Bermuda and the Secretary of State on the subject.Dispatches from Tasmania include a report of three pages on the convict establishment at Port Arthur followed by a breakdown of the number and description of convicts for the year 1862. Overall, correspondence from the Governors of other Australian colonies report widespread public hostility to any possibility of a return to the convict system. Fuelled by rumours that transportation was once again before British parliament for consideration, these 'Memorials against Transportation' played an important part in forming a confident and distinct Australian national identity.

        La Cité antique

      Paris: Durand,, 1864. Étude sur le culte, le droit, les institutions de la Grèce et de Rome. Octavo (214 x 135 mm). Contemporary dark green half shagreen by Gustave Schildknecht of Brussels (ticket to front pastedown), black morocco label, raised bands with dotted roll gilt, spine tips with rules and rolls gilt, marbled boards and endpapers, edges speckled black. Early 20th-century ticket of Librairie Pierre Berès to front free endpaper, monogram book label to front pastedown, early inscription to half-title. Slight wear to joints and corners of boards, the occasional light spot to contents. A very good copy. First edition of the author's best known work, published at a time of renewed interest in religious history. "Its fundamental idea is that the beliefs of man are the determinants, and even the creators, of his institutions. In the preface to La Cité antique Coulanges wrote: 'The past never completely dies for men. Man may forget it, but he keeps it with him always. For such as he himself is in each epoch he is the product and résumé of all anterior epochs. If he descends into his own soul, he can rediscover there these different epochs, and distinguish them according to the impress which each had made on him.' (?) In antiquity Fustel found that religious beliefs were most powerful. Starting with the origins of the Greek and the Roman family, he discovered that the family group was built around the worship of deceased ancestors. Upon this cult of the dead was imposed a second religion: that of the forces of nature which was better adapted to social progress. This formed a sort of common denominator to all families and presided at the rise of cities, replacing diversity by unity of belief. The city was still modelled after the family; it had its hearth, its god, and its cult. Its law and institutions drew their roots from religion. In time men developed other interests and demanded new sanctions. A series of revolutions led to changes in government and in civil laws; the priest-king yielded to an oligarchy and that in turn to democracies. As the horizon of men widened, local deities were merged: 'la fusion des divinités locales prepara insensiblement la fusion des cités.' Thus a larger unity was presaged. Greek cosmopolitanism weakened the sense of patriotism, and Rome made the whole of the Mediterranean basin her own. The many cities yielded to one. With the advent of Christianity, however, a wedge was driven between religion and government, and with the ruin of the old religions, came the ruin of the old institutions. The new faith established a new society" (James Westfall Thompson & Bernard J. Holm, A History of Historical Writing, Volume 2, 1943, pp. 364?5).

        Hingham, Massachusetts Raises Troops Under Lincoln’s Draft Call

      Hingham, MA 1864 - Broadside. "War Meeting! An Adjourned Meeting of Citizens liable to be Drafted into the Military Service of the United States." Hingham, Mass., February 13, 1864. 1 p., approximately 11 1/4 x 16 3/4 in., matted and framed to 18 3/4 x 24 1/4 in. On February 1, 1864, Lincoln called for an additional 200,000 men to fill Union ranks. The town of Hingham needed 34 men to meet their quota, and used this broadside to advertise the muster. Israel Whitcomb was secretary of the Hingham rallying committee, organized to recruit soldiers and solicit donations to meet the town's quota of troops. The Hingham committee had assembled (and voted itself out of existence) for Lincoln's earlier draft calls.

        Mailing Envelope Incorporating "Genl Custer"

      Washington DC 1864 - Firmly addressed, personal communication from Gen. Custer to his wife Elizabeth. 3.5" x 8" envelope still sealed, slit at both ends, tear at bottom left, 1/2" stain at bottom, expert archival reinforced to tear on verso. Custer's own hand includes; "Mrs. General Custer / 339 Penn Avenue / Washington D. C." and "Printed Matter" at top left. Includes 3-cent George Washington Stamp canceled by a D.C. postmark dated May 6. While the year is not visible in the post-mark as they were married in February '64 and the War was over and they were living together again in the Spring of '65. As told in her book, "The Boy General". Elizabeth "Libbie" Bacon and George Custer were married on February 9, 1864. Custer's leave of absence was cut short by urgent recalls from the Army of the Potomac. Libbie begged hard not to be left behind and initially took up residence at the extreme flank of the Army in a Virginia farmhouse, finishing up her honeymoon alone. As U.S. Grant took command of the Army of the Potomac and prepared for the Overland campaign, Custer's 5th Michigan Cavalry was assigned under General Philip Sheridan.According to the book, "The Custer Story; The Life and Intimate Letters of General George A. Custer and His Wife Elizabeth" edited by Marguerite Merinton, Custer wrote to Elizabeth on May 4th, 1864 from Camp Libbie, Virginia; "This is probably the last letter you will get before the coming fight. The entire army moves to-night, and begins crossing the Rapidan at Germania and lower fords. Communication with Washington will probably be abandoned for several days, but do not borrow trouble. No, dearest girl, of course I am not ashamed of you.How could I be? for having declined to ride my horse? Before I received your letter I was chiding myself.but "She" knows be too well to think me careless for her safety." (p. 95) This is likely Custer's addressed envelope from that correspondence. He wrote it on the 4th, it went to Washington via courier on the 5th and was post marked on the 6th.

      Taylor and Francis, London - FIRST EDITION, FULL VOLUME 154 OF THE PHILOSOPHICAL TRANSACTIONS, INCLUSIVE OF SIX IMPORTANT PAPERS, HERSCHEL'S EXTRAORDINARY CATALOG OF NEBULÆ & STARS; THREE ASTRONOMY PAPERS BY WILLIAM HUGGINS, TYNDALL'S FOURTH PAPER ON GLOBAL WARMING & GEORGE BOOLE'S FINAL PAPER. First edition of SIR JOHN HERSCHEL'S enormous catalog, a complete and descriptive compilation of the 5,079 nebulæ and clusters known to date, the majority of which had been discovered by either his father, Sir William Herschel, or himself. An extraordinary achievement, it remains celebrated to this day. First edition of three important papers in the history of astronomy, all by WILLIAM HUGGINS, the founder of stellar astrophysics. Employing only items he had set up in his own observatory -- chemicals and batteries and cameras -- Huggins, first visually and then photographically, explored the spectra of stars, nebulae, and comets. In the first paper here, "On the Spectra of some of the Chemical Elements", Huggins proved stars to be composed of known elements occurring on the Earth and Sun - something we no take as a given. In the second and third papers present in this volume, Huggins was the first to show that some nebulae, including the great nebula in Orion, have pure emission spectra and thus must be truly gaseous, while others, such as that in Andromeda, yield spectra characteristic of stars - a groundbreaking discovery the Dictionary of Scientific Biography deemed "sensational" (DSB, 541). First edition of a paper by JOHN TYNDALL, his fourth in a series of papers (or 'memoirs') written as he investigated the absorption of radiant energy by gases and, by the way, proved that global warming exists. In these papers he demonstrates the first quantification and demonstration that atmospheric gases are infrared emitters, in other words, that they emit heat. The 'memoir' offered here, "On the Absorption and Radiation of Heat by Gaseous and Liquid Matter," proves "that gaseous films not more than one hundredth part of an inch in thickness exhibited a measureable absorption, examing the sifting powers of gases and radiant heat, and extending his researches on dynamic radiation" (Vincent, The Year-book of Facts in Science and Art, 5). Tyndall received the 1869 Rumford metal in recognition of the importance of his work on radiant heat (Milestones in Science 191). What he discovered is considered "the first accurate account of how the atmosphere functions" (Kolbert, Field Notes from a Catastrophe: Man, Nature, and Climate Change, 35). Prior to Tyndall, many believed that something like what we now call the Greenhouse Effect existed, but in this paper Tyndall was the first to demonstrate, quantify, and thus prove it. First edition of GEORGE BOOLE'S final paper, this on differential equations and employing Cayley's method with the equation solved by a definite integral. Boole died later in 1864.
