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 )

61 editions published between 1843 and 2015 in English and held by 467 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This the fourth edition, was expanded and enlarged from the 3rd Ed. of 1848, with beautiful hand coloured plates, with eight by George Catlin. Prichard directs his profound researches to the diverse physical aspects characterised in all of the races of humankind, concluding that all human races are of one species and family, a precursory opinion for all modern ethnology. Covered in this seminal work are Egyptians, Semites, Chinese, Indians, Africans, Abyssinians, Malaysians, Indigenous North Americans, Eskimos and so forth. This historically important work, Along with Prichard's research into the physical history of humankind, constituted the cornerstone of anthropology in England
A treatise on insanity and other disorders affecting the mind by James Cowles Prichard( Book )

37 editions published between 1835 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 291 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. Original text, J.C. Prichard, 1835. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2004 APA, all rights reserved)
