About this Item

First edition copy. . London: Renshaw, 1840. 1st Edition. xv+[1]+339+[1]pp. + wood-engraved frontis with + inserted rear ad leaf advertising as "just published" Winslow's +Physic and Physicians+, published in 1839 by Longmans. Publisher's blind-embossed green cloth with gilt-stamped spine and yellow endpapers. Corners bumped, 19th century armorial bookplate, minor rubbing to the cloth, frontispiece's paper oxidized with consequent foxing to the titlepage, water stains to frontis and endpapers, hinges cracked, text block loose and some soiling to the binding; otherwise a fair to good copy. Quite uncommon. We've also had it in brown cloth, which may have been how it was bound for sale in Dublin or Edinburgh. In any case, I've always regarded the green cloth issue as earlier. Sadoff Catalog page 80; Brittain p. 207. Weight: 1 pound 6.7 ounces = 645 grams. Size: 9.1 x 6.0 x 1.1 inches = 22.7 x 15 x 2.7cm. Winslow's second book and the first psychiatric study of suicide in English, in which Winslow argued that most suicides were not criminal but victims of mental disease. Winslow founded in 1848 the first British psychiatric journal and was one of the medical experts who testified at the McNaughton trial. It was largely due to his influence that the insanity plea came to be frequently used in Britain. Winslow is one of the key figures in the creation of psychiatry as a professional subspecialty of medicine in the United Kingdom. Inquire if you need further information. Gach.

Store Description

The books listed on ABE are not always available in our stores. Please do not call our store locations for these items. With 3 stores less than 1 hour outside the DC/Metropolitan area (1 in Gaithersburg, 1 in Frederick and 1 in Hagerstown, MD), we have the largest selection of books in the tri-state area. Wonder Book and Video has been in business since 1980 and online since 1997. We have over 1 Million books for sale on our website and another 1 Million books for sale in our 3 locations. We have a very active online inventory and as such, we can receive multiple orders for the same item. We fill those orders on a first come first serve basis, but will refund promptly any items that are out of stock. Since 1980 it has always been about the books. ALL kinds of books from 95 cent children's paperbacks to five figure rare and collectibles. A merging of the old and new is where we started, and it is where we are today. Our retail stores have always been places where a reader can rush in looking for a title needed for a term paper that is due the next day, or where bibliophiles can get lost "in the stacks" for as long as they wish. In 2002 USAToday recognized us as "1 of 10 Great Old Bookstores", and we have been featured in numerous other newspaper and TV stories including Washington Post and CSpan. Members ABAA, ILAB.
