The natural history of man; comprising inquiries into the modifying influence of physical and moral agencies on the different tribes of the human family by James Cowles Prichard( Book )

97 editions published between 1840 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 556 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It is the design of the following work, to furnish for the use of general readers, a brief and popular view of all the physical characteristics, or varieties in colour, figure, structure of body, and likewise of the moral and intellectual peculiarities which distinguish from each other the different races of men. It is likewise intended, in the same treatise, to comprise such an account of the nature and causes of these phenomena as the present state of knowledge will afford. For the completion of this design, it was necessary to describe all the different tribes of people scattered over the world, and to advert, however briefly, to their mutual relations, and to all that is known respecting their origin and descent, as discovered by historical and philological investigations. Very brief, indeed, must necessarily be such a summary of universal ethnography. It was only possible to state, and that in a manner rather summary than argumentative, results, in which inquiring persons can hardly be expected to acquiesce without the exhibition of unquestionable evidence"--Foreword.

A treatise on insanity and other disorders affecting the mind by James Cowles Prichard( Book )

36 editions published between 1835 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Writers on the disorders of the mind have frequently remarked that it is difficult to furnish a definition of insanity, which may enable us at once to recognize it when it exists, and to distinguish it from all other conditions whether of health or of disease. Although many excellent treatises exist on various matters connected with mental derangement in the English, French, and German languages, there is yet not one work extant in either of them which exhibits the present state of knowledge and opinion on the whole subject of diseases affecting the mind. This text allows me to state in a more convincing manner my opinions on some important questions connected with the nature of insanity, with respect to which I believe the notions generally prevalent, and sanctioned by the highest medical and legal authorities in this country, to be not only erroneous, but the sources of great practical evils.
