Three seminal early works of psychiatry bound together in 1/4 cloth over marbled boards. Leuret was one of the most progressive thinkers and teachers of the early 19th century. Broca and Gratiolet were both students. 426pp, light browning to page edges and occasional mild foxing.

Georget was less progressive but no less central - he is perhaps most famous for his classification of monomanias and his ideas on physiognomy that led him to commission a series of portraits of mental patients by Gericault (10 were completed, the most famous of which is Portrait of a Kleptomaniac.) Scattered light browning and foxing - 176pp and 101pp.
