Garrison-Morton, n°4922. - Heirs of Hippocrates, n°1990. First edition of the founding text of modern psychiatry. Decorated with a folding table and 2 engraved plates. This treatise, whose first edition was resolutely placed under the sign of enlightenment and philanthropy, describes a clinical entity, codifies the "moral treatment" of madness, begins to define and glorify the asyline institution, and consecrates psychiatry as a medical discipline in its own right (En français dans le texte, n°203). Small, unobtrusive hole on title page. A few pale halos and light freckling. Bound after : BROUSSAIS. Le Choléra-morbus épidémique, observé et traité selon la méthode physiologique.
