Ex library. A little worn, with two inch long tear on back strip, good condition. Charles Paul Dubois , physician in Berne, later professor of neuropathology there, achieved great fame as a psychotherapist. He was one of the founders of the Swiss Society of Neurologist. Freud, in his derogatory reference to Jung's conceptions, implies that Dubois was his inspiration. Although both Jung and Dubois are Swiss, it is not likely that the latter had influenced Jung in any way. The moral aspect in psychotherapy is what links the two. The principle which operates in Dubois's System is moral suasion - an echo of Heinroth's theological psychiatry.
Dubois's experience with patients was extensive, and his treatment was effective, while his books, without pretence of elaborate research, were sound presentations of the lesser mental troubles and contained much wisdom " - Roback, History of Psychology and Psychiatry, SS.

Excellent collector's copy of the fourth edition of Erasmus' renowned collection of proverbs, bound here with the first edition of his epigrams. This work was first published in as Adagiorum collectanea, a slim anthology of proverbs and sayings derived from classical sources; this edition contains proverbs. These collections became extremely popular, particularly with aspiring humanists, who wanted to flesh out their own writings with passages taken from the ancients and thus appear more learned than they really were.
The anthology eventually expanded to over proverbs. It typifies the humanist attitude to the classical text 'as expressions of a timeless wisdom first uncovered by the classical authors.

The ambitious scheme transformed the neo-classical pile into an idiosyncratic expression of Stirling's tastes and interests. At the centre was his magnificent two -storey library, lined in cedar, with specially designed furniture and fittings. Dr Waagen found it "too remarkable a room not to be mentioned" and noted that every surface was carved with mottoes, "the study of which would occupy an ordinary length of life very profitably" Waagen, The books were beautifully bound and embossed with Stirling's armorial devices, and he himself designed the ex libris slips.

Retold by a master-story teller of our time - one of the best-loved creative writers of India - a hundred tales of light, wit and delight- tales of common sense and sensxe uncommon - tales of the wise and their wisecracks. A significant branch of India's vast literary heritage consists of tales told by mystics through the ages, different from myths and legends. Though taken for granted as a part of our folklore and rarely discussed, their influence on the minds of generations of common people has been only next to that of the epics.
Sometimes they hit the nail of the head, sometimes they shock and sometimes they make one laugh at oneself, but they invariably enrich one's mind by identifying the complex and intriguing forces - psychological and occult, at work in our lives. This collection, probably the first ever of its kind, of a full hundred tales culled from sages known and unknown through decades of a sustained interest by its present author, should prove as revealing as they have proved for centuries past.

Westcott, contained a very interesting chapter called "The Gnostic Magic of Egypt", from which the following quote: Let us first consider the essential principles of Gnosticism, which are briefly as follows: First - A denial of the dogma of a personal supreme God, and the assertion of a supreme divine essence consisting of the purest light and pervading that boundless space of perfected matter which the Greeks called the Pleroma.

Some unobtrusive staining to inner margins throughout due to binder's glue; a few leaves with dampstains to lower corners; and a few signatures foxed due to paperstock. A neat, broad-margined copy in an early binding. Editio princeps of this apocryphal text celebrating the Medieval ideal of the 'strong' or 'valiant' woman - certainly an unusual theme for an incunable, and an important reflection of idealized female conduct in the early Renaissance.

De Muliere Forti takes as its scriptural starting point verses of Proverbs 31, which contain some of the most outspoken praises of women in the Bible: "Strength and beauty are her clothing She hath opened her mouth to wisdom , and the law of clemency is on her tongue " etc. In De Muliere Forti, various parts of a woman's body feet, hands, arms, loins, breast, womb, etc are treated as symbolic of the virtues of the 'valiant woman'; overall the text "show[s] readers how a male Dominican thought about gender and, in particular, women in the high Middle Ages" The Valiant Woman, p.
On the other hand, an allegorical interpretation refers to the Church herself as the 'Valiant Woman', and "one could say that [the author] radicalizes the tradition by writing an entire theological treatise on ecclesiology on the basis of the Song [ of Solomon]. The opening words of the book state simply: Laudes Ecclesiae describit Salomon in figura mulieris fortis, 'Solomon lists the praises of the Church in the figure of a valiant woman,' and the rest of the work gives a theological elaboration of that assumption, interspersed with philosophy and Aristotelian physics for example on the formation of snow, in connection with verse 21 " Wolters.
The inscription may reflect a reader's authorial attribution - which would be an interesting piece of the historiographical puzzle - or, a later monk may have taken on the same nom de religion as his illustrious predecessor.
