HUNTER/MACALPINE 94ff.: "most frequently reprinted psychiatric text". OSLER: "größte medizinische Abhandlung von einem Laien geschrieben"; ALEXANDER/SELESNICK 140ff.: "Burtons Einstellung zur Geisteskrankheit war für seine Zeit so fortschrittlich, dass sein Buch keine unmittelbaren Vorläufer und keine unmittelbaren Nachfolger hatte, obwohl er einen großen Teil der in späteren Jahrhunderten geschriebenen englischen Literatur beeinflußte. Burton erkannte die wichtigsten psychodynamischen Komponenten der Melancholie und schilderte einige der wesentlichen Prinzipien der Psychoanalyse". - Burton (1577-1640) war theologischer Dekan in Oxford. Die EA der "Anatomy..." stammt aus dem Jahr 1621, hier liegt die letzte des 17. Jahrhunderts vor. Aus dem Vorbesitz der berühmten Büchersammler und Bibliophilen Henry Perkins (1755-1855) aus Springfield, Surrey, und von Robert Hoe III (1839-1909)

Turberville, George. The Booke of Faulconrie or Hauking, for the onely delight and pleasure of all Noblemen and Gentlemen: Collected out of the best aucthors, asvvell Italians as Frenchmen, and some English practises withall concernyng faulconrie, the contentes whereof are to be seene in the next page folowyng. By George Turberuile Gentleman. London, Christopher Barker, 1575. ; 1. Ed.
Rare first edition of the "best known English book on hawking" (Schwerdt), replete with 42 charming woodcuts. The present work is a comprehensive guide to all aspects of falconry, promising to teach the reader "to knowe all kinds of Hawkes, and to have the cunning how to reclayme, keepe, flee, ympe, & mewe the sayd Hawkes, with sundry other like matters incident and appertayning to Falconrie". Although imported hawks were an exceptional luxury in 16th century Europe, Turberville does give significant mention to the "Barbary" and even "Tunisian" falcons, replete with illustrations. - Turberville's account is acknowledged as a valuable source of 16th century terminology and practice (cf., eg., Grassby), and figures prominently in the literary history of the sport: "Despite its medieval associations, falconry retained its high status into the sixteenth century and even received a boost from the printing press." Grassby describes the "culture of hunting" in Early Modern England as "a form of pleasure and relaxation which was thought to offer an emotional link with the natural world"; the present treatise, with its remarkably detailed and perceptive veterinary section (running to 150 pages), certainly demonstrates the high esteem which 16th century falconers held for their charges. As Turberville indeed notes, "it is very necessary and behovefull for [the reader] to have knowledge and good experience in their diseases and cures: for that they are birds subject to sundrie maladies and accidents, the cure of all which dothe rest in the careful keeper". - According to Grassby, Turberville wrote for the nobility and gentry, who were of course the primary consumers of falconry during the period; the annotations found in the margins of the present copy certainly show a easy familiarity with hawking. Hawks were bequeathed in wills, and it was a felony to steal a manned hawk. "He is no body," noted Robert Burton in his 'Anatomy of Melancholy', "that in the season hath not a Hawk on his fist". - Persistent but light staining. Occasional dog-earing, worming, minor tears and printer's faults with very minor losses of text (X5, X6, and Z4 are the worst examples). - Rare, only one complete of the present first edition in auction records of the past decades (but 17 copies of the 1611 reprint). - BM-STC 567. Harting 14. Souhart 469. Schwerdt 270-271 ("rare"). R. Grassby, "The Decline of Falconry in Early Modern England", Past and Present (1997) 157 (1), 37-62.
