         Elements of Faith, for the use of Jewish youth, of both sexes. (Shorshei Emunah).

      London E. Justins printer 1815 - First edition. 4to, (21 x 14 cm). [1-3,] 4-10, [1], 6-1 pp, [1], 2, [3] 4-56 ll. Restored marbled boards, with calf spine and gilt ornaments. Text in English and Hebrew. A fine copy. Educational handbook which aimed at protecting Jewish children from the inroads of Christian missionaries. First published in London in 1815, the book was then translated to Dutch and published in Amsterdam in 1816; Second English edition was published in 1817. The Introduction states that the book was undertaken at the behest of the Rabbi of the Aschkenazic community of London, Solomon Hirschell, together with Raphael di Meldola, Rabbi of the Sephardic community. The book had its critics among the London Jewry - in 1818 Salomon Bennett, a professional engraver and author, published a work titled 'The Present Reign of the Synagogue of Duke's Place Displayed in a Series of Critical, Theological and Rabbinical Discussions on a Hebrew Pamphlet entitled Minchath Kenauth' in which he attacks the Chief Rabbi Solomon Hirschell and the offered book, which was published under Hirschell's patronage and which Bennett regarded as being heretical. Shalom ben Jacob Cohen (1772–1845) was a Hebrew writer, poet and scholar. Born in Mezhirech, Poland, he studied German and read the new Hebrew literature. His first book, Mishlei Agur (1799), was a collection of Hebrew fables in rhyme, with German translation, aimed at teaching Jewish children simple and clear Hebrew. Cohen went to Berlin in 1789 and served as a teacher as well as the editor of Ha-Me'assef (in the years 1809–11), a periodical which aimed to spread the use of the Hebrew language among educated Jewish youth. In 1813 Cohen left Germany, spent a short period in Amsterdam, and moved to London where he tried unsuccessfully to establish a Jewish school, publishing the offered title along the way. He then moved to Hamburg circa 1816-1817. In 1820 Cohen was invited by Anton Schmid to serve as head proofreader in the Hebrew section of his printing press in Vienna, where he remained for 16 years. In 1821 Cohen established the annual Bikkurei ha-Ittim, three issues of which appeared under his editorship. In 1834 he published his poetic work, Nir David, a description of the life of King David, which considered one of the first romantic works in Hebrew literature. In 1836 Cohen returned to Hamburg, where he remained until his death. His last extensive work was Kore ha-Dorot, a history of the Jewish people (1838). His other works include: Matta'ei Kedem al Admat Zafon (1807), poetry; Amal ve-Tirzah (1812), an allegorical and utopian drama, a sequel to M.H. Luzzatto's La-Yesharim Tehillah; and Ketav Yosher (1820), a literary miscellany. Singerman 0364, does not appear in Goldman. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         Case of a foetus found in the abdomen of a young man, at Sherborne, in Dorsetshire / by Nathaniel Highmore, Surgeon, and member of the Royal College of Surgeons in London

      Published by Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme and Brown, Paternoster-Row. And sold by Anderton, West-Smithfield; Callow, Crown-Court, Soho; Cox, St. Thomas-Street, Borough; Highley, and Underwood, Fleet-Street, London 1815 - 4to. 30, [2] pp., with 2 folded leaves of engraved plates depicting the monstrous growth (signed C. Heath, Sculp.). The long list of Subscribers consists of four pages (pp. 5-9). With the uncommon Errata leaf at end. Bound by Hering, almost certainly Charles Hering owing to the quality of the tooling and exceptional leather using in the binding. On both covers the gilt arms of Charles Stanhope, 4th Earl of Harrington, with motto "A Deo et rege." Binding rubbed along extremities (significantly so on top edge of lower cover, oddly blackened; the spine appears to have had some repair). At one time another work, subsequently excised, was contained in this volume: several stubs can be seen following the printed text, and indeed there is some faint offsetting (of a drawing?) on the final blank leaf. Four broad bands on spine, the second compartment lettered direct, others bearing a gilt impression on an Owl which is not known to have been associated with the Stanhope family. Perhaps this represents the Owl of Athena? The first and foremost description of this celebrated medical curiosity; the case of one Thomas Lane (16 years of age), whose death was apparently caused as a result of a half-formed foetus growing in his intenstines.The boy's stomach expanded enormously and, according to the present text, "exclaimed, affrightened, 'Mother! Do come to me, I have something ALIVE in my body!'" (p. 14). The author's first assumption was that Thomas Lane was no boy, but actually a girl (see Lisa Forman Cody, Birthing the Nation: Sex, Science, and the Conception of Eighteenth-Century Britons, Oxford University Press, 2005, pp. 299-300). The monstrous fetus in question is in the museum of the College of Surgeons in London. It would appear that the cyst itself was contained in a turbid whitish-coloured fluid, with balls of hair mixed with fat, in which was calcareous matter. Attached to the cyst was a mass of bone, teeth, &c. On one sige projected a small appendage resembling the hand, and below this was a long appendage like an abortive arms (or foot?) -- see Thomas Hawkes Tanner, On the Signs and Diseases of Pregnancy (1867), p. 171, note. The author, Nathaniel Highmore, a member of Jesus College, Cambridge, received his classical education at Gottingen, under Michaelis and Heyne, and studied medicine at London, Edinburgh, and Leyden. In 1789 he was ordained a deacon, but he never went into priest's orders; and, at length, resolving to become an advocate in the ecclesiastical court, he took the degree of doctor of civil law at Cambridge in 1796. It is unclear to us why Highmore would have had an interest in monstrous fetuses, as here. Equally unclear are the reasons for which the first owner of this volume had it bound by Hering, one of the foremost bookbinders in London during the Regency. PROVENANCE: Charles Stanhope, 4th Earl of Harrington (1780-1851), eldest son of Charles Stanhope, 3rd Earl of Harrington, and Jane, daughter and coheir of Sir John Fleming, Baronet, of Brampton Park in Middlesex, was known as Viscount Petersham until he succeeded his father as 4th Earl of Harrington in 1829. A Major General in the Army and a Lord of the Bedchamber, he was a leader of fashion during the Regency and a well known eccentric. He never went out until six o' clock in the evening, his equipage was all of a certain colour of brown, he invented the Petersham overcoat and Petersham blend of snuff, made his own blacking, and had an outstanding collection of snuff boxes. He married Maria Foote, the actress, 7 April 1831. They had an only surviving daughter, and at his death the title passed to his brother, Leicester Fitzgerald Charles Stanhope. (SOURCE: British Armorial Bindings online database). Scarce in commerce: only other copy is currently available, and not only is it in a modern binding, but it is lacking one of the two plates (sic).

         Handbuch der menschlichen Anatomie. 4 Bde. (all publ.).

      Halle und Berlin, in der Buchhandlung des Hallischen Waisenhauses, 1815-1820, 8, X, 664 XVIII, 621 XVI, 800 XVIII, 820 pp., 4 Halbledereinbände der Zeit Rücken erneuert feines Exemplar. First Edition!"This four-volume unillustrated treatise on human anatomy is a fine example of the accuracy and scholarship which characterize all of Meckel's work."Johann Friedrich Meckel der Jüngere, "den man auch oft als den deutschen Cuvier bezeichnet hat, ist der Sohn von Philipp Friedrich Theodor M., geb. zu Halle am 17. October 1781 - 31. October 1833 als Professor der Anatomie und Physiologie und Director des anatomischen Instituts an genannter Universität. Von der Familie Meckel, in der noch zwei nachfolgend zu erwähnende Anatomen zu verzeichnen sind, war J. F. M. der bedeutendste Geist, ein Mann, der durch seine erfolgreiche litterarische Thätigkeit, seine vortreffliche Schule und reichhaltigen anatomischen Sammlungen in Halle eine hervorragende Stellung unter seinen Fachgenossen nicht nur in Deutschland, sondern in ganz Europa einnahm. Nachdem M. in den Jahren 1805-1806 die vortrefflichen Sammlungen in Paris, welche von Buffon und Daubenton gegründet und die von Cuvier vervollständigt und bis zu einem gewissen Grade vollendet worden waren, fleißig benutzt und in Italien, Holland und England sein Wissen erweitert hatte, kehrte er nach Halle zurück und stellte dort im Anschlusse an die Vorarbeiten seines Großvaters und Vaters eine der ersten und reichsten vergleichend-anatomischen Sammlungen her und erscheint dann als Hauptbegründer der Zootomie und Teratologie in Deutschland. Sein System der vergleichenden Anatomie, welches er von 1831-1833 herausgab, das aber unvollendet blieb, ist von Anfang an als eine classische Arbeit und als eine seiner besten Leistungen angesehen worden. Im 25. Lebensjahre wurde M. in Halle Professor der Anatomie, sah bald einen großen Kreis von Schülern um sich versammelt und wirkte ganz besonders mit Hilfe des neu umgestalteten Archivs von Reil und Autenrieth, welches anfänglich unter dem Titel "Deutsches Archiv für Physiologie" und später als "Archiv für Anatomie und Physiologie" erschien, weit über die Grenzen Deutschlands hinaus. Die unter Meckel's Redaction herausgegebenen 14 Bände enthalten fast alle werthvolle Abhandlungen von ihm selbst, und da die Mehrzahl der Anatomen und Zootomen deutscher Zunge dort ihre Arbeiten publicirten, wurde Halle ebenso zur Centralstätte der vergleichenden Anatomen Deutschlands, wie es Paris am Ende des vorigen und zu Anfang dieses Jahrhunderts unter dem für alle Zeiten mustergiltigen Forscher Cuvier, jenem geistvollen Zögling der Karlsakademie in Stuttgart, gewesen ist. Im J. 1826 erschien die classische Abhandlung über das Schnabelthier: "Ornithorynchi paradoxi descriptio" voraus ging 1815-1820 "Handbuch der menschlichen Anatomie", 4 Bde. Zu der damaligen Zeit waren für den Anatomen nicht jene die Wissenschaft besonders fördernden engen Grenzen für sein Forschungsgebiet gezogen, wie in der Gegenwart denn M. beschäftigte sich nicht nur mit Anatomie, Physiologie und Zootomie, sondern gab auch von 1812-1818 das "Handbuch der pathologischen Anatomie" in 2 Bänden heraus, ein Buch, in welchem sehr werthvolle selbständige Forschungsresultate insbesondere über die Mißbildungen niedergelegt sind. Dies Werk ist heute noch von den pathologischen Anatomen mit Recht hochgeschätzt. Am einflußreichsten wurde jedoch M. als Zootom. In dem Buche "System der vergleichenden Anatomie", welches eine Fülle von Thatsachen und selbständigen Forschungsresultaten einschließt, hat M. eine Anzahl neuer Anschauungen niedergelegt, welche erst in der weiteren Folge von großer Bedeutung geworden sind. Schon O. Schmidt hat mit prägnanter Kürze in seiner Abhandlung "Ueber die Entwickelung der vergleichenden Anatomie" auf das Wesentliche dieser Meckel'schen Anschauungen hingewiesen. O. Schmidt sagt: "Nach Meckel beruht die vergleichende Anatomie auf zwei Gesetzen, dem der Mannigfaltigkeit und dem der Reduction (Aehnlichkeit, Analogie, Identität). Sein Gesetz der Mannigfaltigkeit ist eigentlich nur der Nachweis und die Darstellung der an dem einzelnen Thiere und den verschiedenen Thierarten und Gruppen hervortretenden Verschiedenheiten, als der zunächst dem Beobachter in die Augen fallenden Momente auch die Ursachen, die inneren und äußeren Einflüsse, welche die Mannigfaltigkeit zu bedingen scheinen, zählt M. auf, ohne jedoch die wirkliche innere Nothwendigkeit, das eigentliche Gesetz der Mannigfaltigkeit darlegen zu können, was wir auch jetzt noch nicht vermögen. Im Gesetz der Reduction zeigt sich dann einmal, wie weit die verschieden aussehenden und verschieden gelegenen Theile eines und desselben Individuums mit einander verglichen und als identisch betrachtet werden können und dann, wie weit die verschiedenen Organismen sowohl im regelmäßigen als im regelwidrigen Zustande mit einander sich vergleichen lassen." M. hat in dem genannten Werk eine Anzahl Sätze zu begründen versucht, in welchen auch nach der Auffassung von O. Schmidt und V. Carus (Geschichte der Zoologie) die ganze moderne Richtung der vergleichenden Anatomie eingeschlossen ist. 1) "Die Entwickelung des einzelnen Organismus, sagte M., geschieht nach denselben Gesetzen als die der ganzen Thierreihe, d. h. das höhere Thier durchläuft in seiner Entwickelung dem Wesentlichen nach die unter ihm stehenden, bleibenden Stufen, wodurch also die periodischen und Klassenverschiedenheiten aufeinander zurückgeführt werden 2) die sexuellen Verschiedenheiten können wenigstens ihrer Entstehung nach gleichfalls auf periodische zurückgeführt werden 3) den sexuellen periodischen und Klassenverschiedenheiten lassen sich auch die in dem individuellen Organismus zwischen den verschiedenen Theilen desselben bestehenden vergleichen." So sehr auch M. sich auf dem Boden der Detailforschung bewegt hat, so blieb sein System der vergleichenden Anatomie nicht ganz frei von dem Geiste der deutschen naturphilosophischen Schule damaliger Zeit. Wie man schon im J. 1816 über M. und seine wissenschaftlichen Leistungen dachte, geht aus einem Urtheil Sömmering's über denselben hervor, das mir im Original vorliegt und da dasselbe nicht publicirt worden ist, so soll dasselbe hier in Kürze Verwerthung finden. Bei der Aufnahme Meckel's in die baierische Akademie der Wissenschaften sagt Sömmering in einem Schriftstück, datirt den 23. Februar 1816: "Meckel's Abhandlungen aus der vergleichenden und menschlichen Anatomie und Physiologie enthalten eine wirklich erstaunliche Menge eigener Untersuchungen gerade über die bis jetzt noch räthselhaften Organe, nämlich die Schilddrüse, Nebennieren und Thymus. Allein alle Erwartungen wurden übertroffen in seinem neu herausgegebenen Werke "Beiträge zur vergleichenden Anatomie", in zwei Bänden, Leipzig 1808-1812. Dieselben enthalten einen Schatz ebenso neuer als subtiler Entdeckungen und daraus abgeleiteter sinnreicher Resultate, welche durch hohe Wahrscheinlichkeit sich auszeichnen, nebst den mit eigener Hand gefertigten Abbildungen, größtentheils Früchten seines Aufenthaltes in Frankreich und Italien." "Und daß ich es kurz zusammenfasse", sagt Sömmering, "von wenigen Männern seines Faches läßt sich außer einer hohen Originalität die strenge Wahrheitsliebe, das gesunde Urtheil, der klare, deutliche und correcte Vortrag und die gehörige Würdigung seiner Vorgänger in dem Maße rühmen, als man durchaus in seinen, jedem gründlichen Physiologen unentbehrlichen Werken antrifft." Wie richtig dies Urtheil von Sömmering war, wurde erst durch die weitere Entwickelung der vergleichenden Anatomie in dem letzten halben Jahrhundert erwiesen. M. hat es verstanden in einer für seine Forschungen sehr günstigen Zeitperiode die reichen vergleichend-anatomischen Schätze zu heben und die nachfolgenden Generationen konnten dieselben verwerthen, mit ihren vervollkommneten Hilfsmitteln vermehren und ihre Einsicht in die Organisation der Thierwelt vertiefen. Die von M. hinterlassenen reichen Sammlungen, welche von den Nachfolgern, insbesondere durch den gegenwärtigen vortrefflichen Conservator derselben, Professor Dr. H. Welcker, bedeutend vermehrt wurden, können mit als die besten Deutschlands bezeichnet werden." Nikolaus Rüdinger, ADB XXi (1885), pp. 159-162.Garrison & Morton No.407 Heirs of Hippocrates No. 1368

         Nuovo prospetto delle scienze economiche, ossia somma totale delle idee teoriche e pratiche in ogni ramo d'amministrazione privata e pubblica.Milano, presso Gio. Pirotta , 1815-17.

      Milano, presso Gio. Pirotta 1815-17 - Sei volumi di cm. 26,5, pp. xi (1), 300; (4) 304; (4) 266, lxxviii; (4) 312; (4) 224, clx; (4) 432. Con 4 grandi prospetti statistici ripieg. f.t. Graziosa legatura coeva in mezza perg. con titoli in oro su tass. in pelle al dorso e piccole punte. Lievi e naturali fioriture. Ottimo esemplare ad ampi margini. Melchiorre Gioia (1767-1829), celebre scrittore di cose politiche ed economiche nativo di Piacenza, in giovane età fu al centro di accuse di giacobinismo e giansenismo che determinarono il suo allontanamento dall'amministrazione generale di Lombardia. In seguito al trattato di Campoformio Gioia mutò la sua visione politica avversando con decisione la Francia. Scrisse opere fondamentali che lo consacrarono tra gli autori più eruditi e originali dell'intero Ottocento. In questo monumentale e importante lavoro Gioia seguì soltanto in parte le nuove idee liberali degli economisti inglesi, per abbracciare invece la dottrina del protezionismo e dell'intervento statale nella vita economica. I sei volumi sono dedicati rispettivamente ai seguenti temi: produzione delle ricchezze; distribuzione delle ricchezze; consumo delle ricchezze; azione governativa sulla produzione; stato della scienza; applicazioni delle teorie economiche alla stima dei fondi. Rara edizione originale. Cfr. Cat. Einaudi, 2574; Iccu. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         A Grammar of the Chinese Language.

      Serampore: printed at the Mission-Press,, 1815. Quarto (281 x 230 mm). Uncut in original boards, rebacked at an early date, later printed paper spine label. Housed in a custom green cloth solander box. Chinese types throughout. Ownership inscription (Edward Henry Hancock, London, May 2nd 1859) and 20th-century bookseller's ticket (Arthur Probsthain) to front pastedown. Sides marked, extremities worn, inner hinges reinforced, pastedowns and endpapers a little soiled, mild longitudinal crease to front free endpaper, title page and preface leaf, light browning, mild spotting, the occasional shallow nick to edges as usual in untrimmed books, a few trivial spots. A very good copy. First edition of the first Chinese grammar written in English. Morrison's work, although published a year after Joshua Marshman's Clavis Sinica, was already completed by 1811, and Morrison himself believed that Marshman had plagiarised parts of his text: " it was a revolutionary undertaking, not only because it was the first of its kind in English, but also because Mandarin had never been used officially in writing and would remain strictly in colloquial use for at least another century" (Foley, Biblical Translation in Chinese and Greek, p. 76 & n. 65). (In fact Morrison's transliterations follow Cantonese pronunciation; the written languages are identical.) Morrison (1782-1834) joined the London Missionary Society in 1804 and sailed for Canton in early 1807. He faced opposition from the East India Company and the Portuguese authorities in Macau, so chose to live secretly among American merchants. His grammar was published on a press owned by the East India Company, as was his famous dictionary, printed in Macau between 1815 and 1823, but his missionary activities soon came to the notice of the company's directors, who petitioned for his expulsion, without success; in 1816 he was appointed interpreter to Lord Amherst's abortive mission to Peking. His translation of the Bible appeared in 1823, and the following year he returned to Britain, bringing with him a substantial Chinese library which became the core of the collection at the School of Oriental and African Studies. He returned to China in 1826 at a time of growing tensions over the opium trade, and died shortly after being appointed Lord Napier's Chinese secretary in 1834. " His work in Canton had secured no more than a dozen converts, but his genius lay elsewhere. His reputation stands today first as a protestant pioneer, both physically and methodologically—he proved that it was possible for Europeans to publish works in Chinese in China itself; and second as a scholarly facilitator of cultural exchange between Europe and China. As the report of the East India Company's select committee in Canton stated in 1827, Robert Morrison was considered the chief person who opened to his countrymen the road to the knowledge of the language of China" (ODNB).

         Rare Antique Master Print-BOURBON RESTORATION-LOUIS XVIII-BOUQUET-Chereau-1815

      - Plate : 'La Famille Royale, ou le Bouquet Cheri.' (The Royal family, or the cherished bouquet.) This plate shows a flower bouquet with the portraits of Louis XVIII (1755 - 1824) - Marie Therese, duchesse d'Angouleme (daughter of Marie-Antoinette and Louis XVII) - Charles, Comte d'Artois - Louis Antoine, duc d'Angouleme - Ferdinand, duc de Berry. In 1814 the Bourbons were restored to the throne of France. This engraving, published ca. 1815, puts the returning Bourbons at the center of a 'royal bouquet.' It is interesting that the duchesse d'Angouleme is placed in the second tier of flowers, just below the right hand side of Louis XVIII. Perhaps the engraving, which was no doubt created to promote joy in return of the Bourbon monarchy, was intending to capitalize on the memory of the French. They would remember their 'princess in the tower', daughter of the last king and queen, much more than her two cousins. Extremely rare item. Crayon style engraving on a vellin type paper. This plate published in Paris by Madamme Ve. Chereau. Madame le Veuve Chereau (literally, The Widow Chereau, named Genevieve Marguerite) was a French print publisher in Paris. She went into business when she inherited the plates of her husband, the engraver Fran�ois Chereau (1680-1729), who had been the leading engraver of portraits during the reign of Louis XIV and also made engravings after the most celebrated painters of the epoch. As she died in 1782, this print must have been published by her successors her nephew Jacques-Simon. Condition: Image good, margins fair. General age-related toning and light soiling. Several small tears in the margins; backed. Please study scan carefully. The overall size is ca. 10 x 13.6 inch. The image size is ca. 9.1 x 12.6 inch. The overall size is ca. 25.5 x 34.5 cm.

      (Lima, , 1815). - 4°, disbound. Caption title. Very good to fine. (2 ll.). *** FIRST EDITION of this speech given on the King's birthday in 1815, at the Real Colegio de San Fernando in Lima. Davalos, who taught there and at the Real Universidad de San Marcos, condemns the monstruos de crueldad y tiranía" and "viles intrigantes" who have been wreaking havoc in Peru, and promises that students will be instructed to love and respect their sovereign: "El pueblo es de ordinario una masa inerte y ciega que necesita el primer impulso para obrar, per cuyo movimiento es casi siempre precipitado y violento; debemos pues todos por un principio de amor al soberano y por nuestro verdadero bien, contribuir en quanto sea posible a dar a esta máquina inmensa la direccion mas conveniente á su propia utilidad."The speech was pronounced while Peru was in the midst of its war for independence, which lasted from 1809 to 1821. By May 1815 Ferdinand VII had been restored to the throne after Napoleon's defeat, the rebellion in Cuzco under General Mateo Pumacahua had been defeated, and even the rebels in neighboring Chile had been temporarily subdued: the royalists seemed very near a final victory.*** Medina, Lima 3167.

With 8 full-page engravings of which 6 are double-page, plus 1 full-page lithograph in the text. Attractive modern quarter cloth over sky-blue boards, title-label on upper cover, top edges gilt, others untrimmed, red spine label. Stamp of the Public Record Office of verso of final leaf, added to this copy, mandating that "This book is to be preserved in the [now defunct] Office of the Lords Commission of His Majesty's Treasury. 1814-1815. A monument in the history of Psychiatry, being the catalyst for change in the appalling conditions of English insane asylums, and largely responsible for a change in public perceptions of mental illness and the treatment thereof. The Report contains a survey of the horrendous conditions in some of the asylums, and describes all aspects of asylum life, in some cases so sickening as to remain unbelievable. The work is notable for its inclusion of 8 extraordinarily detailed architectural plans of insane asylums (of which 6 are double page). "They are today a historical source of the first importance containing information nowhere else to be found about how the insane actually fared as opposed to what was written about insanity in books, a disparity between theory and practice which emerges glaringly" (SOURCE: Hunter & Macalpine, Three Hundred Years of Psychiatry, 1535-1860, pp. 696-703). Allan Ingram explains the significance of the present Report: "The appointment of the Select Committee was the result of a range of events and pressures accumulating over some years prior to its sessions of evidence, which began in May 1815. Most significant of these were the scandals following the revelation of William Norris's confinement in Bethlem, exposed in 1814 by Edward Wakefield, MP, and of large-scale embezzlement and ill-treatment at the York Asylum, made public in 1813 by the West Riding magistrate Godfrey Higgins. The committee was chaired by George Rose, who had campaigned for many years for more effective regulation of madhouses. Witnesses before the inquiry included not only Wakefield and Higgins but James Veitch, a naval staff surgeon; William Finch and Thomas Bakewell, who ran asylums in Salisbury and Staffordshire respectively; Samuel Tuke, who reported on the York Retreat; James Bevan, an architect; Richard Stavely, a relative of the recently deceased James Tilly Matthews; and many of the current office holders of Bethlem Hospital, among them John Haslam, the apothecary, and Thomas Monro, the physician, both of whom lost their posts as a result of the findings. The cases of Norris and Matthews were subjects of particular concern for the committee, and the death of a patient called Fowler, referred to as 'hushed up' by Urbane Metcalf in his The Interior of Bethlehem Hospital, was raised in the questioning of John Haslam. Both Monro and Haslam were pressed repeatedly over their responsibilities and roles, but at the same time the whole economy, organisation and practice of Bethlem were being scrutinised and found to be lamentably wanting. Alongside this, while Bethlem and York provided the focus, the committee wanted to hear about conditions in as many asylums and madhouses, both public and private, as possible, including workhouses where pauper lunatics were confined. While the reports contained truly harrowing information, such as the observations of the Ipswich banker Henry Alexander in the west of England, there were also impressive accounts of model practice and management. Some of these related to London, such as Wakefield's assessment of the insane ward at Guy's Hospital, or of Fox's private madhouse at Hackney, where James Tilly Matthews had worked. Others were provincial, with Wakefield again giving high praise to Edward Long Fox's house at Bristol (extract B below). The committee's findings (a second report was published in 1816) marked a turning-point in attitudes towards treatment of madness, even though no legislation followed for 13 years. Public opinion, that had once happily looked on madness as a spectator sport, swung decisively behind regulation and reform" (SOURCE: Allan Ingram, Patterns of Madness in the Eighteenth Century, A Reader, 1998, p. 246). Our volume contains the actual Report, which is in fact only 7 pages in length (sic), followed by the four Reports of 1815. A further three were published in 1816, all of less significance as they merely confirm the 1815 findings and add additional evidence. "The Select Committee of 1816 hear nothing particularly new or startling; the testimony of the witnesses served largely to confirm the findings of the 1815 Committee, and none of the evidence introduced indicated that asylums were materially better -- or worse -- than they had been the year before" (SOURCE: Virginia Ehrig Somers, " The 'Madhouse committees' of the House of Commons and their influence on reform legislation for the insane in England, 1800-1850" (MA Dissertation, University of Nebraska at Omaha, 1970, p. 45 and passim). Our copy contains the integral final blank leaf Lll2, bearing the same watermark as Kkk1 ("LG" within a circle, and with the date "1815").

Light scattered foxing throughout, corner of one plate restored, unaffecting impression. xii, 551pp. London, Longmans, Sir Henry Holland, first baronet (1788?1873), was born at Knutsford, Cheshire. After a education in medicine at Edinburgh and two years residency at Guy's & St Thomas', Holland in 1810 began indulging his adventurous spiritwith an expedition to Iceland, ostensibly to research his doctoral thesis. Following his graduation, Holland spent eighteen months travelling in Portugal, Gibraltar, Sardinia, Sicily, the Ionian Isles, and Greece. This book constitutes an account of the eastern part of this journey. The publication was a great success, and it ?provided him with an entrée to London society which would be of great benefit in a medical career which he determined would allow him to devote two months of every year to travel. In 1814 he again visited Europe, this time as medical attendant to the princess of Wales (later Queen Caroline). He was subsequently asked to testify at the inquiry of 1820 which sought the necessary evidence to divorce her from George IV.? (ODNB) [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      Ordered by the House of Commons to be printed, London 1815 - Folio. 7, [1], 129, [3], 131-152, [2], 153-182, [2], 183-214 pp., 1 f. (integral blank), 1 p. With 8 full-page engravings of which 6 are double-page, plus 1 full-page lithograph in the text. Attractive modern quarter cloth over sky-blue boards, title-label on upper cover, top edges gilt, others untrimmed, red spine label. Stamp of the Public Record Office of verso of final leaf, added to this copy, mandating that "This book is to be preserved in the [now defunct] Office of the Lords Commission of His Majesty's Treasury. 1814-1815." A monument in the history of Psychiatry, being the catalyst for change in the appalling conditions of English insane asylums, and largely responsible for a change in public perceptions of mental illness and the treatment thereof. The Report contains a survey of the horrendous conditions in some of the asylums, and describes all aspects of asylum life, in some cases so sickening as to remain unbelievable. The work is notable for its inclusion of 8 extraordinarily detailed architectural plans of insane asylums (of which 6 are double page). "They are today a historical source of the first importance containing information nowhere else to be found about how the insane actually fared as opposed to what was written about insanity in books, a disparity between theory and practice which emerges glaringly" (SOURCE: Hunter & Macalpine, Three Hundred Years of Psychiatry, 1535-1860, pp. 696-703). Allan Ingram explains the significance of the present Report: "The appointment of the Select Committee was the result of a range of events and pressures accumulating over some years prior to its sessions of evidence, which began in May 1815. Most significant of these were the scandals following the revelation of William Norris's confinement in Bethlem, exposed in 1814 by Edward Wakefield, MP, and of large-scale embezzlement and ill-treatment at the York Asylum, made public in 1813 by the West Riding magistrate Godfrey Higgins. The committee was chaired by George Rose, who had campaigned for many years for more effective regulation of madhouses. Witnesses before the inquiry included not only Wakefield and Higgins but James Veitch, a naval staff surgeon; William Finch and Thomas Bakewell, who ran asylums in Salisbury and Staffordshire respectively; Samuel Tuke, who reported on the York Retreat; James Bevan, an architect; Richard Stavely, a relative of the recently deceased James Tilly Matthews; and many of the current office holders of Bethlem Hospital, among them John Haslam, the apothecary, and Thomas Monro, the physician, both of whom lost their posts as a result of the findings. The cases of Norris and Matthews were subjects of particular concern for the committee, and the death of a patient called Fowler, referred to as 'hushed up' by Urbane Metcalf in his The Interior of Bethlehem Hospital, was raised in the questioning of John Haslam. Both Monro and Haslam were pressed repeatedly over their responsibilities and roles, but at the same time the whole economy, organisation and practice of Bethlem were being scrutinised and found to be lamentably wanting. Alongside this, while Bethlem and York provided the focus, the committee wanted to hear about conditions in as many asylums and madhouses, both public and private, as possible, including workhouses where pauper lunatics were confined. While the reports contained truly harrowing information, such as the observations of the Ipswich banker Henry Alexander in the west of England, there were also impressive accounts of model practice and management. Some of these related to London, such as Wakefield's assessment of the insane ward at Guy's Hospital, or of Fox's private madhouse at Hackney, where James Tilly Matthews had worked. Others were provincial, with Wakefield again giving high praise to Edward Long Fox's house at Bristol (extract B below). The committee's findings (a second report was published in 1816) marked a turning-point in attitudes towards treatment of madne [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         Case of a foetus found in the abdomen of a young man, at Sherborne, in Dorsetshire / by Nathaniel Highmore, Surgeon, and member of the Royal College of Surgeons in London

      London: Published by Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme and Brown, Paternoster-Row. And sold by Anderton, West-Smithfield; Callow, Crown-Court, Soho; Cox, St. Thomas-Street, Borough; Highley, and Underwood, Fleet-Street, 1815. FIRST EDITION. Very good. 4to. 30, [2] pp., with 2 folded leaves of engraved plates depicting the monstrous growth (signed C. Heath, Sculp.). The long list of Subscribers consists of four pages (pp. 5-9). With the uncommon Errata leaf at end. Bound by Hering, almost certainly Charles Hering owing to the quality of the tooling and exceptional leather using in the binding. On both covers the gilt arms of Charles Stanhope, 4th Earl of Harrington, with motto "A Deo et rege." Binding rubbed along extremities (significantly so on top edge of lower cover, oddly blackened; the spine appears to have had some repair). At one time another work, subsequently excised, was contained in this volume: several stubs can be seen following the printed text, and indeed there is some faint offsetting (of a drawing?) on the final blank leaf. Four broad bands on spine, the second compartment lettered direct, others bearing a gilt impression on an Owl which is not known to have been associated with the Stanhope family. Perhaps this represents the Owl of Athena? The first and foremost description of this celebrated medical curiosity; the case of one Thomas Lane (16 years of age), whose death was apparently caused as a result of a half-formed foetus growing in his intenstines. The boy's stomach expanded enormously and, according to the present text, "exclaimed, affrightened, 'Mother! Do come to me, I have something ALIVE in my body!'" (p. 14). The author's first assumption was that Thomas Lane was no boy, but actually a girl (see Lisa Forman Cody, Birthing the Nation: Sex, Science, and the Conception of Eighteenth-Century Britons, Oxford University Press, 2005, pp. 299-300). The monstrous fetus in question is in the museum of the College of Surgeons in London. It would appear that the cyst itself was contained in a turbid whitish-coloured fluid, with balls of hair mixed with fat, in which was calcareous matter. Attached to the cyst was a mass of bone, teeth, &c. On one sige projected a small appendage resembling the hand, and below this was a long appendage like an abortive arms (or foot?) -- see Thomas Hawkes Tanner, On the Signs and Diseases of Pregnancy (1867), p. 171, note. The author, Nathaniel Highmore, a member of Jesus College, Cambridge, received his classical education at Gottingen, under Michaelis and Heyne, and studied medicine at London, Edinburgh, and Leyden. In 1789 he was ordained a deacon, but he never went into priest's orders; and, at length, resolving to become an advocate in the ecclesiastical court, he took the degree of doctor of civil law at Cambridge in 1796. It is unclear to us why Highmore would have had an interest in monstrous fetuses, as here. Equally unclear are the reasons for which the first owner of this volume had it bound by Hering, one of the foremost bookbinders in London during the Regency. PROVENANCE: Charles Stanhope, 4th Earl of Harrington (1780-1851), eldest son of Charles Stanhope, 3rd Earl of Harrington, and Jane, daughter and coheir of Sir John Fleming, Baronet, of Brampton Park in Middlesex, was known as Viscount Petersham until he succeeded his father as 4th Earl of Harrington in 1829. A Major General in the Army and a Lord of the Bedchamber, he was a leader of fashion during the Regency and a well known eccentric. He never went out until six o' clock in the evening, his equipage was all of a certain colour of brown, he invented the Petersham overcoat and Petersham blend of snuff, made his own blacking, and had an outstanding collection of snuff boxes. He married Maria Foote, the actress, 7 April 1831. They had an only surviving daughter, and at his death the title passed to his brother, Leicester Fitzgerald Charles Stanhope.

Scarce in commerce: only other copy is currently available, and not only is it in a modern binding, but it is lacking one of the two plates (sic).
