        Examen critique d'un écrit posthume de Claude Bernard sur la fermentation....

      Paris: Gauthier-Villars, 1879. 1st Edition. Hardcover. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. 8vo (224 x 139 mm). xxiv, 156 pp., text illustrations and two engraved plates by Felizat. Original printed wrappers bound in. Fine cherry-colour full morocco binding by Canape.R.D dated 1926, spine with 5 raised bands gilt-lettered in first compartment, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt, morocco turn-ins with gilt-ruled borders. Provenance: Victor Hugo. Carte de visite by Louis Pasteur and small portrait photograph sticked to second blank leaf. ----Norman 1660; Cushing P142; Heirs of Hippocrates 1900; Osler 1552. - FIRST EDITION, PRESENTATION COPY, INSCRIBED BY PASTEUR on the half-title: "A monsieur Victor Hugo, de l'Academie francaise, Hommage de profond respect, L. Pasteur." A rare instance, linking two of the greatest French men of the 19th century: one of the founders of modern medicine, Louis Pasteur, and the literary giant Victor Hugo, author of Les misérables or Hunchback of Notre-Dame. Louis Pasteur arguably was a great admirer of Victor Hugo. In a manuscript dated February 7, 1885, just a few months before the death of the great poet, he writes: "L'enfant sublime, comme l'a nomme Chateaubriand, a merite d'etre appele le sublime vieillard. Devant cette glorieuse longevite, la France donne un beau spectacle. Son acclamation est un cri de patriotisme." Whereas Victor Hugo was elected a member of the Academie francaise on January 7, 1841 at the age of just 39, Pasteur became a member of this academy rather late, on December 8, 1881, a few days before his 60th birthday. The academy was an exclusive society made up of 40 of France's most important people. We know of at least one other copy of this book containing a dedication by Pasteur to a member of the Academie, Émile Littré, with an almost identical wording: "A monsieur Littre, de l'Academie francaise, Hommage de profond respect, L. Pasteur." Could it be possible that Pasteur presented copies of his book to members of the Academie to gain support for his election campaign? Regarding the book itself, Pierre Bertholet, an opponent of Pasteur's controversial theory of fermentation, published a posthumous and unauthorized version of some notes by Claude Bernard, a supporter of Pasteur's, which claimed to have isolated a soluble chemical produced by yeast that caused fermentation, in contrast to Pasteur's theory. Pasteur's bitter reply strengthened his conviction that fermentation was life without air, a belief he held until Eduard Buchner isolated a soluble alcoholic ferment in 1897. Near Fine....

        La pitié suprême

      Michel Lévy. Original edition.Binding half old red grief with some discreet restorations, back with five nerves, when tail, paper plates to the tank, and contreplats combed guards lined paper, preserved covers, red head, contemporary binding.Precious autograph signed by Victor Hugo Alphonse Daudet.Buffer library of Madame Daudet on the first guard.Victor Hugo is for Alphonse Daudet, like other writers of his generation, the undisputed master of arts Hall of Fame. His father figure sprinkles the works of Daudet, commonly called alongside those of Rousseau, Byron, Sand and Delacroix.If during childhood and youth Daudet, Hugo, exiled giant on his island of Guernsey, remains an unattainable ideal, "almost beyond humanity," Back in France allows him to meet him someday. Around 1875, shortly after the publication of his first works, Alphonse Daudet and Julia are well received in Hugo who now lives with Juliette Drouet.They therefore become intimate of the house until the poet's death. Victor Hugo is involved in the education of the young Léon Daudet, best friend grand-son of Hugo, George and later husband of Jeanne ephemeral.In his Memories of a literary circle, Julia Daudet evokes friendship of ten years with the "idol of all France poetic""I see the great Victor Hugo end of his table; the old master, a bit isolated, a little deaf, sits with God silences, absences of a genius on the brink of immortality. The white hair, colored head, and this eye old lion that develops side with power ferocity; he listens to my husband and Catullus Mendes between which is very lively discussion about youth and celebrity known men and their attractiveness to women. [...] During the debate we went to the salon, Victor Hugo dream by the fire, and famous, universal and demigod regret perhaps his youth, while Mrs Drouet sleeping quietly. »The friendship between the last great romantic writer and one of the masters of the early naturalist school reflects the sharpness of Victor Hugo who, at the height of his fame, and retains a special kind attention for the remote yet modern literature Hugo's lyricism.This dedication Hugo Daudet on a skilled, with The Pope and Religions and Religion, of "philosophical testament" by Henri Guillemin, symbolically resonates as a legacy by a devout follower of the political and moral responsibility of the writer.Provenance: Alphonse Daudet, sales Sickles (1990, IV, No. 1200) and Philippe Zoummeroff sale (2 April 2001).Gift extract of a literary circle by Julia Daudet:"How can we forget that first visit home, rue de Clichy, in the modest apartment so disproportionate to his glory, the idea we had of the glory that had filled palaces: He gets up the seat he occupied the fire in front of Madame Drouet, his old friend, (...) I am amazed at its size, but soon, when it will meet me and talk to me, I would find it very big, very intimidating. And this I felt so shy, I always try them in front of Victor Hugo, the result of this great admiration, respect it as an absent god, my parents instilled in me the genius of a poet. I will overcome never that trembling voice every time I answer his kind words, and I say astonish for nearly years to hear women, admitted to him, maintain their inner and their usual trivia.That night, when he had made me quite confused, Mrs Drouet, she said with a charming good grace - Here is the corner of the old and you are too young for us. But Victor Hugo will introduce you to his daughter, Mrs. Lockroy; alone has standing to that.And I was driving on the other side of the room, moderately large, though, but that was as divided in two by a table topped with a bronze elephant, very majestic, Japanese or Chinese, I think. It was enough to make two very distinct small groups that communicate easily, but without merging.At the time of his return, Victor Hugo was dazzling wit, many memories and told with an inexhaustible verve when the policy is not too invading his hospitable table. And grace in the home, what noble ways, what a beautiful smile grandfather in her hair I have gradually seen to blanch the snow eighty years I poets, all the poets attending this salon on Rue de Clichy, later the hotel Avenue d'Eylau. But here it was the change of place? There was like a step down in health, and in the spirit of good old man. Yet he always loved to entertain his friends, and the hospitality of this open house was not one of his charms least because, around the table, embellished with a piece by the two grandchildren of the Master, the guests were seeking their watchword in the eyes of the host, and he sometimes found a vein of memories so vivid, so picturesquely expressed, which remained blinded entire evening. M mo Drouet slowly growing old with him, sheltered under two snow bands, a somewhat theatrical elegance and quaint, until a ruthless evil dug his face so thin, made painful effigy has painted Bastien Lepage, who was to die prey to the same torture. In the recent times, the Master looked painfully, intimate dinners, that empty plate, that noble ravaged face.- Mrs Drouet, you do not eat, you must eat, have courage.Eat! She was dying. Did he know? Was he trying to delude himself the fine old so tough and strong, and who saw this companion from fifty years!In the large room where looks beautiful portrait of Bonnat, the paternal gesture, where the bust by David presides immensely; in the lounge, decorated with these striped multicolored tapestry that seemed strained to Dona Sol; in the garden come to the verandah by a flight of stairs two reappear Leconte de Lisle, Meurice and Vacquerie, Paul de Saint-Victor, smiling Banville, Flaubert and Goncourt conversing together, Mallarmé, Leon Cladel, Francois Coppe, Catullus Mendes, Clovis Hugues, shadows in a faded Eden; and Leon Glaize, Gustave Rivet, Pierre Elzéar, the tiny pink Ms Michelet offering a festive evening, and ambassadors, diplomats, Emperor of Brazil; painters, sculptors, and many politicians that I do not remember the names!Here the immediate impression that I drew one of those evenings when we visited, Alphonse Daudet and me, a snowy evening, where during the ride our horse fell three times across the Esplanade des Invalides:I see the great Victor Hugo end of his table; the old master, a bit isolated, a little deaf, sits with God silences, absences of a genius on the brink of immortality. The white hair, colored head, and this eye old lion that develops side with ferocity of power; he listens to my husband and Catullus Mendes between which is very lively discussion about youth and celebrity known men and their attractiveness to women. Alphonse claims that in a living room filled with all sorts of talents, of any age, a young man, the unknown author, the poet will ignored her female eyes beautiful it is. Catullus Mendes replied that he will initially unnoticed, and that all women will go to awareness: this seems true to me. Fortunately women do not have the eyes of their face, but those of the mind and heart. For the intellectual, the beauty of an artist, a poet does not count, it is the look of the thinker, the tormented face of the man who lives his feelings. They go to the talent, grief passes, they hardly thinking about physical beauty. Now one might reply that this is an ambitious sympathy they seek famous authors, but the other feeling, one that would attract to this tempting youth whose Alphonse speaks, seems less blameless.And I laugh to this claim of two charming conversationalists, generate, analyze us. But to say the woman is like saying the bird; there are so many species and genera, warbling and plumage are so different!During the debate we went to the salon, Victor Hugo dream by the fire, and famous, universal and demigod regret perhaps his youth, while Mrs Drouet sleeping quietly. His beautiful white hair shading his fine head like two wings of a dove, and knots of her bodice following her sweet breath, almost resigned, old woman asleep.It was soon after this event took place the great manifestation of scrolling Paris Avenue d'Eylau, before the windows of the small room that became mortuary in May 1885 filled with roses and simply furnished, such as accounts, museum Victor Hugo, a part taken in the former apartment of the poet, Place Royale.Although suggestive, the old home of the Marsh, "and when you think that there Victor Hugo wrote almost all his historical plays one imagines the poet, opening, the morning hours that were familiar to him, this high window on hotels all equal and same style, around the square, and remembering tournaments, duels, walks and agitations of several generations disappeared under the shadow of these ancient and solid arcades and not keeping track of the fugitive humanity.We still had dinner at Victor Hugo week before his death. He tells us by entering paler than usual, the inflected approach:- I will soon go, I feel it; and then relying on the shoulder of George: No 'that' a long time ago that I would be gone.I have never forgotten the focus rather solemn and as prophetic those words, I was imbued with sadness and foreboding; I felt the dispersion of this unique center and could not re ever!

        War in Bulgaria:

      London: Sampson, Low, Marston, Searle, & Rivington,, 1879. a narrative of personal experiences. 2 volumes, octavo (217 x 130 mm). Contemporary brown half morocco by Edmond & Spark of Aberdeen, decorative gilt spines, marbled sides, speckled edges, marbled endpapers. 5 large lithograph maps (4 coloured) Bindings patchily sunned and a little mottled, a couple of maps skilfully strengthened on verso but an excellent set. First edition, decidedly scarce in commerce. Valentine Baker (1827-1887), called Baker Pasha, was "the former commanding officer of the 10th Hussars and younger brother of the explorer Sir Samuel White... and regarded as one of the most promising officers in the army... [however, following an unfortunate incident involving a young lady on a train between Woking and Esher] He was fined £500 and sentenced to a year's imprisonment... Consequently, after his release from prison, he had to pursue a career in Turkish and Egyptian services, becoming a major-general in the Turkish gendarmerie and then commanding a Turkish division in the Russo-Turkish War of 1876-78. His fighting rearguard action at Tashkessan brought him promotion to lieutenant-general" (Ian F. W. Beckett, The Victorians at War, 2003, p. 79). The results of that service is War in Bulgaria, which "revealed the enthusiastic soldier and the disappointed general, and his disillusionment with the Turkish high command; but it argued for continued support of Turkey against Russian advances on India. From the war he drew military lessons for Britain. Like others, he emphasized the lethality of rifle firepower and the necessity of entrenching, loose formations, and flank attacks, but claimed that cavalry could still be effective in battle" (ODNB). Provenance: contemporary armorial bookplates of Thomas Gladstone (1804-1889), "throughout his life he remained a staunch Conservative and Evangelical, and so came to differ, at times bitterly, with his brother William, the Liberal prime minister and high churchman. He inherited a 45,000-acre estate at Fasque [Aberdeenshire] from his father in 1851, and thereafter lived the life of a country gentleman and devoted himself to Kincardine affairs" (The History of Parliament online).

        PRIVATE DIARY OF SHEB OATMAN [manuscript title]

      Mason, San Angelo, Fort Stockton, Fort Davis, Van Horn, and Fort Quitman, Texas, 1879. [2],75,[1]pp. Contemporary leather wallet-style binding. Spine and edges worn. Light spotting and minimal foxing. Very good. A fascinating manuscript diary written during an emigration by wagon across frontier Texas in the summer of 1879. The author, Sheb Oatman, joined the Parks family wagon train in Mason, Texas (located about 100 miles north-northwest of Austin) as the group headed for Silver City, New Mexico. W. John Parks and his family emigrated from the Williams Ranch in Mills County, Texas to the Knight's Ranch near Lordsburg, New Mexico, and it is during this migration that Oatman records this diary. The travelling party left on June 11, 1879, and along the way, Oatman chronicles a wealth of interesting information on contemporary frontier life, including his current locations with relative distances to other towns, his impressions of the places he visits, his comments on the landscape, soil, foliage, and environmental conditions (especially related to farming and irrigation), his views on Native Americans, African- Americans, and Mexicans, and much more, all written in a clear and evocative style. The diary concludes at Fort Quitman, Texas, before the party reaches New Mexico. Oatman begins the diary with a positive appraisal of the town of Mason, Texas, "a growing and thriving village of perhaps a 1000 inhabitants" with a "new stone court-house very handsomely finished off [which] adds greatly to the appearance of the town." After leaving Mason, the first town that the migrating party comes to on the trail is Menardville (present-day Menard, Tx.), which Oatman describes as follows: "Passed through Men'ville the county seat of Menard Co. This is a small village situated near the last named stream, and contains four or five business houses. This Co. is very sparsely settled. The people who has the most depend chiefly on sheep and cattle for a living." A couple of days later, Oatman reports that "a body of Indians is rading [sic] to the south of us in Kimble Co. A few days ago they murdered the wife and child of Mr. Colson. The soldiers followed the 'reds' and captured several head of horses." That same day, Oatman writes that "the people are clever, but rough in manners and habits. Buildings are small and poorly furnished. Parents have no opportunity to educate their children here." Oatman includes information about how Native Americans lived and worked on the land through which he passes. At Kickapoo Spring, he writes: "In former years this spring was noted indian rendezvous. Here the dusky denizens of the plains struck camp, beat corn and dried venison in mortar-shaped holes in rock, feasted and danced the war- dance; and here they divided into small squads(?) before starting to the white settlements east." By June 16, Oatman and the wagon train have nearly reached Fort Concho near present-day San Angelo, where the author provides an excellent description of the post, and also rather casually reveals his views on African- Americans with quite startling clarity: "Companies of lazy worthless darkies in soldiers uniforms under command of Maj. Mills are quartered here. These are doubtless a dead expense to the government. The negro is better fitted for the cotton plantation than for the ranks of an army. The idea of placing stupid darkies on the frontier so c[l]ose with the wily red man is ridiculous in the extreme, and shows that the authorities at Washington do not understand the situation of affairs. A few companies of daring Texas cow drivers could do more against the indians than thousands of negroes." On June 18 the party reaches the Pecos River, "120 miles W. from Concho." Here, Oatman witnesses a military wagon train belonging to the "29th Company K of Lt. Richards in command of the 24th Reg" cross the Pecos and make camp on the opposite bank. At this point along the route, Oatman writes that "the next point ahead of us is Ft. Stockton." Before reaching Fort Stockton, Oatman's party encounters a large "Mexican farm" irrigated by the Pecos, "owned by one man an aged white man who is married to a Mexican woman. The cultivators are Mexicans who are proned to the owner, that is they are his slaves all but the name. He furnishes them just enough food and raiment to keep soul and body together and takes their crops in payment for the same. These people are degenerate looking specimens of Adam's race. They are just the picture of physical ugliness, and are low in the scale of intellectuality. The women are very small, and are wholly devoid of every feminine charm." By July 3 the party has arrived at Fort Stockton. Oatman travels into town, and describes it as follows: "The citizen town is just south of the soldier quarters, contains several business houses, a catholic cathedral, a jail, and about twenty dwellings. Streets are white. A public school is being taught. A majority of the inhabitants are worthless looking mexicans. The thieving propensities of these people is great. They lounge around the stores and steal whatever and steal whatever they can by their hands on and conceal. They follow without hesitation the evil of their nature." On July 6, Oatman enumerates the roster of the wagon train as "six wagons, an ambulance, two men, five ladies, and fourteen children." By this time, the party has reached Limpia Creek between Fort Stockton and Fort Davis, and eventually camps outside Davis. Oatman continues to report on the landscape, rivers, and wildlife, and gives a nice description of Fort Davis. At Muerto station, Oatman records the details of a skirmish that had occurred two days prior between soldiers and a large black bear, after the latter charged into the station. The wagon train reached Van Horn by July 12, where Oatman and his party are warned about attacks by local Native Americans, which "raised some excitement" among the travellers. By July 15, they had made it to the Rio Grande near Fort Quitman, which is where the account ends. Oatman describes Fort Quitman as "an old forsaken post now in a state of the most utter ruins. The buildings are without rooves doors shutters or window shutters. Not a human being could be seen among these ruins. Quitman has a bloody history. It was on the boundary between Texas and Mexico." Oatman's last entry indicates that the party followed the Rio Grande north, and we know from other historical records that the Parks family settled in Lordburg, New Mexico. Oatman's diary of this wagon train from Mason to Fort Quitman provides detail about, or at least mentions a number of notable Texas places, including the San Saba River, Menard County, Fort McKavett, Fort Concho, Kickapoo Spring, San Angelo, Grayson Spring, the Pecos River, Escondido station, Barela station, Fort Davis, Muerto station, Van Horn, and Fort Quitman. Activities include fishing, hunting prairie dogs, deer, bear, and other wildlife. Oatman writes about gambling, making turtle soup and rabbit stew, and a myriad of other subjects relative to life on a wagon train in frontier Texas. He discusses natural phenomena such as timber, mesquite and chapperel brush, lime formations, the "American bison" (on which Oatman expounds for two pages), adobe housing, and irrigation and water-related topography (which he discusses multiple times). Much of the route of the wagon train runs along or very close to present-day Interstate Highway 10, which passes by just south of Mason, continues straight through Fort Stockton and Van Horn, and breaks north just outside Fort Quitman, where it proceeds through El Paso, heading west, where it goes straight through the middle of Lordsburg, New Mexico. The somewhat serpentine route travelled by the wagon train and covered in this dairy measures over 500 miles, and it took the party over a month to accomplish. Today, one could drive the 423 miles from Mason to Fort Quitman, mostly along I-10, in about six hours. Oatman's diary is an incredibly interesting and important first-hand account of life in frontier Texas, with startling and racially-charged language, and significant contemporary information on a wide range of research-worthy topics.

        The First Afghan War and its Causes.

      London: Longmans, Green, and Co.,, 1879. Octavo. Original brown cloth, spine lettered and ruled in gilt, blind rules to covers, brown coated endpapers. Steel-engraved frontispiece. Spine skilfully relined, lightly rubbed overall, corners slightly worn, very occasionally mild spotting, contents almost entirely unopened. A very good copy. First edition, the Durand family copy of this "heavy, detailed account of British-Afghan relations preceding the war and of the war itself up to March of 1842" (Wilber), inscribed by the editor, Durand's son (Henry) Mortimer, in the margin of page vii, "Jo's first exam[inatio]n May 7. 89. Read quite fluently without a mistake, except that she read offices for officers, HMD, 7/5/89", "Jo" apparently one of his two children, and the paragraph indicated describing Durand's passage to India in 1828-9, a voyage "not altogether uneventful; for the 'Lady Holland,' after running some risk from pirates, was wrecked on Dassan Island, and my father, exerting himself to save the lives and property of others, lost everything he possessed". Durand (1812-1871) was commissioned into the Bengal Engineers in 1828, serving in the First Afghan War, where he was instrumental in the capture of Ghazni (a feat which he felt to have been unjustly ignored), and the Second Sikh War, before being appointed resident of Gwalior and subsequently Baroda. During the Mutiny he commanded the Malwa column, and from 1861 to 1865 was Indian foreign secretary. Promoted major-general in 1867, he died a few months into his appointment as lieutenant-governor of the Punjab after a fall from his elephant. "Critics alleged he was overbearing, imperious, intolerant, and convinced of his own infallibility. Yet ? after his death he was much praised: The Times called him India's ablest trained statesman and one of the most energetic of her administrators" (ODNB). Henry Mortimer (1850-1924), his second son, was political secretary at Kabul during the Second Afghan War, and was Indian foreign secretary (as his father had been) from 1884 to 1894, overseeing the demarcation of the Afghan-Indian frontier, now known as the Durand Line.

        Traité de la paralysie générale des aliénés

      XVI-540 pages, 15 planches et Paris, J.-B. Baillère et fils, 1879, in-4, XVI-540 pages, 15 planches et [15] pages d'explication, [4] pages de catalogue éditeur in fine, demi-chagrin vert de l'époque, dos à faux nerfs, Édition originale du plus important des ouvrages de l'aliéniste Auguste Voisin. Très rare. 15 planches en lithographie, dont plusieurs avec rehauts de couleurs. Par la dénomination de "paralysie générale des aliénés", l'auteur tient à marquer la distinction avec la paralysie générale progressive décrite par Raquin, Beau et Woillez. "Malgré les travaux parus depuis cette époque, [Voisin] persistait à considérer la syphilis comme une cause peu fréquente". Auguste Voisin (1829-1898) succéda en 1865 à Félix Voisin à Bicêtre et, en 1867, à Jean-Pierre Falret à la Salpêtrière où il resta plus de 30 ans. Il avait épousé Marie-Pauline Baillière, fille du célèbre éditeur chez qui le présent Traité a été publié. Il semble avoir été prédestiné à la médecine aliéniste : son oncle paternel était Félix Voisin, fondateur, avec Falret, de la maison de santé dans laquelle il vit le jour ; Jules Voisin était son cousin germain. Relié en tête : le fascicule in-8 de 15 pages comprenant le rapport de M. Delasiauve sur la thèse de M. Jules Falret intitulée Recherches sur la folie paralytique et les diverses paralysies générales. Paris, Moquet, 1854. Rapport extrait de la Revue médicale du 15 avril 1854. Cet exemplaire provient de la bibliothèque de Jules Falret (1824-1902), qui a apposé son cachet ex-libris au faux-titre, et de la bibliothèque de Frantz Adam (1886-1968) à Rouffach, avec son ex-libris manuscrit : interne puis psychiatre réputé à Charenton et à hôpital psychiatrique de Rouffach en Alsace, Frantz Adam fut aide-major puis médecin-major au 23e régiment d'infanterie pendant la Grande Guerre ; il est reconnu pour ses photographies prises sur le front et pour ses souvenirs, publiés en 1931 sous le titre « Sentinelles... prenez garde à vous... ». Un papillon manuscrit contrecollé sur une garde, probablement de la main de Frantz Adam, qui déplore : "Pas encore un mot de [sigma] ... en 1879 !!! ..." Semelaigne II, p. 160.

        [Illustrated manuscript journal of a voyage from Australia via the Middle East to Europe].[Australia, Yemen, Egypt, England, France, 29 October 1878 - 27 November 1881]. Large 12mo (19.5 x 12 cm). Manuscript in English in black ink, with some occasional small drawings in the text. Contemporary black cloth.

      Manuscript journal of an Englishwoman living in Australia, describing her journey back to Europe via Yemen and Egypt. Of particular interest are the detailed accounts of the Gulf of Aden, Port Said, El Qantara and the Suez Canal (only a decade after it opened): she describes the area, some towns and villages, and the customs and appearance of the inhabitants she encounters along the way, for example some Egyptian merchants "in white turbans and long gowns fastened with a scarf at the waist" (4 March 1879). Now and then she illustrates her story with a small drawing. The anonymous author, a wealthy woman, was probably related (or maybe married) to Walter Green Esq., referring to his death as the saddest day of her life. The journal starts on 29 October 1878 in Sydney, the author leaving for Europe on 28 January 1879. On 26 February she reaches Aden, Yemen, where "several parties went on shore... some took carriages at 3s each person & drove across to Aden town, consisting of a kind of square with a bazaar with turbaned Arabs, Parsees, Lascars & Africans chattering and buying ...". The journey continues through the Red Sea, reaching the Suez Canal on 4 March and England on 22 of March 1879. In September 1880 the author travels to France for a year. The diary ends on 27 November 1881 in London. Slightly browned with a few dog-eared leaves. Binding rubbed at the extremities and spine slightly damaged at the bottom, lacking final endleaf. Overall in very good condition.

        Étude médico-légale sur les testaments contestés pour cause de folie

      XI, 624, [16] pp. de Paris, Adrien Delahaye, 1879, in-8, XI, 624, [16] pp. de catalogue éditeur, broché, couverture imprimée de l'éditeur, ÉDITION ORIGINALE de cette étude médico-légale qui questionne la succession des personnes atteintes de folie. En effet, après s'être penché sur l'étude des manifestations multiples du délire et des actes criminels de la folie, Legrand du Saulle s'interesse cette fois au sort des fous et leur succession après leur mort. Selon lui, la volonté se doit d'être annulée après un examen serieux si la raison de l'individu n'est pas entière au moment où il a arrêté la distribution de ses biens. L'aliéniste Henri Legrand du Saulle (1830-1886) succèda au poste de médecin au service des aliénés à Prosper Lucas à Bicêtre en 1867 et à Delasiauve à la Salpêtrière en 1878. Fin clinicien et expert judiciaire de renom, on lui doit une oeuvre considérable ainsi qu'un important Traité de médecine légale et de jurisprudence médicale en collaboration avec G. Pouchet, et son gendre Georges Berryer pour la partie judiciaire. Bon exemplaire, restauration habile au dos, couverture légèrement jaunie, dos muet. Cachet ex-libris du docteur Carrier.

"Maurice Dubard était bourguignon et avait fait son droit à Dijon. Après la guerre de 1870, passée sur un bâtiment qui avait couru après les navires de commerce ennemis, il était parti pour l'Extrême-Orient sur le Decrès. Témoin de l'épopée de Francis Garnier qui, dix ans avant Rivière, s'était emparé avec une poignée d'hommes de la citadelle de Hanoï, il avait vu les rangs du corps de débarquement du petit croiseur s'éclaircir sous les balles ennemies et navigué entre Chine, Indochine et Japon, plus de deux années durant. Lorsqu'il rentra en France, le Japon était à la mode. Ayant excursionné là où les touristes commençaient à excursionner, l'aide-commissaire avait su tirer de ses observations un récit pittoresque, combiné avec une vague intrigue romanesque. A la recherche les traces du Japon chevaleresque d'autrefois dans les rencontres que le hasard lui avait ménagées, ne résistant pas à des lieux communs et à quelques grivoiseries, Dubard n'avait d'autre ambition que de s'adresser à un public moyen. Le manuscrit intéressa Plon, qui le publia en 1879 sous le titre Le Japon pittoresque. Ce fut le début d'une honnête carrière littéraire qui se prolongea jusqu'à sa mort, en 1928" (L'Ecole du Commissariat de la Marine (Brest 1864-1939), Paris, 2010) Manque de papier dans le coin supérieur des pages 76-78 et 97-98, mais sans atteinte au texte.

        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1879 - 1879 Paperback Wisden, In Very Nice Condition for the year

      1879. Hi, This lot is an Original 1879 Wisden Paperback. 16th Edition in Orignal Paperback form as Wisden printed it. In Very Good Condition for the year, The book has not had any restoration but an ex owner has written 1879 to the spine (lettering started in 1887). As with 1878 the covers tend to wear a lot with the new style materials used by Wisden but these covers although some wear , and for a paperback, are nicer than many I have seen. The spine paper is complete but the first two pages are coming away slightly , after that it is tightly bound but some care needed at the front. Very nice inside. A chance to own a rare early paperback. The 1879 rebinds are a lot more common than the first 15 but this is less so in original paperback form in my experience , we havent sold many orignal 1879s since we started.
