        Nouveau traité élémentaire et pratique des maladies mentales, suivi de considérations pratiques sur l'administration des asiles d'aliénés

      Paris, Jean-Baptiste Baillière et fils, 1876. 1876, 1876, in-8, de (4), IV, 732, 8 planches, 1 carte, percaline bordeaux imprimé or sur le dos et à froid sur les plats (dos légèrement insolé), Nouvelle édition de cet important ouvrage qui fut publié pour la première fois en 1862. Cette édition contient, pour la première fois, des photographies de malades mentaux : 8 planches en photoglyptie représentant 33 types d'aliénés (maniaques, lypémaniaques, stupides, mégalomanes, fous impulsifs, déments, imbéciles et idiots et crétins). La carte finale propose une vue d'ensemble de la situation des établissements d'aliénés. Cet ouvrage trouve son origine dans le cours de psychiatrie qu'Henri Dagonet (1823-1902) avait créé à la faculté de médecine de Strasbourg. Suivant l'exemple de Pinel et d'Esquirol, il avait adopté une classification des maladies mentales basée sur l'observation clinique et sur la symptomatologie tout en considérant qu'une classification parfaite est impossible. Nommé médecin-chef de l'asile de Sainte-Anne à Paris (1867), il le réforma et y ouvrit des cours pour le personnel infirmier. Il s'agit d'un des tous premiers ouvrages de psychiatrie illustrés par la photographie. Bon exemplaire, très frais et en partie non coupé, dans son cartonnage d'origine. Photoglypties aux contrastes bien conservés. Relié en fin de volume : Bulletin mensuel de la Librairie J.-B.

Contains 92 black-and-white illustrations. Minor foxing and soiling scattered lightly throughout text, and a few pages with minor paper defects. Paher 1179: "De Quille has written the greatest of all the Comstock books and probably the best single book on any Western mining camp. It is source material complete with introduction by Mark Twain, who roomed and shared offices with Dan in 1862..." H.H. Bancroft says of this work: "A curious medley of historical facts and humorous phases of society in connection with a mining excitement that brought about, in a measure, the flush times of El Dorado, and raised Nevada from a country appendage to a state. It is full of stirring incidents and anecdotes, and delights in rough characters and dialoges." -Cowan. Johnson says of it in his "Bibliography of Mark Twain": "One-page Introductory is by Mark Twain. This book is very desirable to the admirer of Twain, as it was written by a fellow worker on the Virginia City Enterprise, of Nevada, who figured as one of the characters of Roughing It, and is a most readable supplement and commentary on same." Newbegin's bookstore description affixed by one corner to the front endpaper. First edition.. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good condition. Octavo (8vo).

        Fire Protection. A complete manual of the organization, machinery, discipline, and general working, of the fire brigade of London.

      - London, Charles and Edwin Layton 1876. Octavo publisher's cloth; xiii,332pp and an illustrated 64 page 'Appendix of Manufacturers' and other Advertisements, having reference to Fire Protection', numerous illustrations and diagrams, a plate and a double page map. Some foxing at the ends but a rather good copy. Uncommon and essential in fire fighting history. As far as Shaw was concerned this was the first attempt in any language 'approaching to a complete or comprehensive scheme' to embody the essential principles and practice of fire fighting. In other countries printed manuals 'of some kind or another have been in use for many years . but they are meagre in the extreme and . altogether useless for the instruction of fire brigades charged with the protection of great commercial cities'. Shaw was of course responsible for the modern London fire department, in turn the model for fire departments around the world. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

The resultant images are famous for their clarity and for the spectacular depth. However the process was also expensive as each plate could produce as few as 50 copies before needing replacement so the method soon fell out of favour and other less expensive, albethey less clear processes of photomechanical reproduction were developed.

        Ulysses S Grant, as President, signs an important warrant for the pardon of Osi Sandlos

A partially printed pardon signed and dated by U.S. Grant as ""19th April 1876"", and ""U.S. Grant"". Near fine with expected folds.A wonderful clean example of a warrant for a pardon for ""the order for the respite of the execution of the sentence in the case of Osi Sandlos"" by President U.S. Grant. During Grant's presidency, he pardoned, commuted or rescinded the convictions of 1,332 people during his term. Although many of the people he pardoned were part of the Confederate army, Grant's presidency revealed scandals and fraudulent activities associated with his administration. His cabinet was in continual transition, divided by the forces of political corruption and reform. President Grant, ever trusting of his associates, found himself influenced by both forces. Grant's reactions to the scandals ranged from prosecuting the perpetrators to protecting or pardoning those who were accused and convicted of the crimes."
