About This Item

Salem, Oregon: W.H. Byars, state printer, 1891. 8vo (23 cm, 9"). 43 pp.

The Oregon State Insane Asylum was authorized by the legislature in 1882 and construction began in 1883 in the Kirkbride Plan design. It received its first patients in 1885. Tables statistically give data on the patients: their civil status, place of birth, nation of origin, place of residence, age, and "supposed cause of insanity." Other information included relates to clothing and food stuffs.
    Not yet 10 years old, the hospital needs new buildings and laundry machinery, and the plans for building an electric light plant are on hold. Original printed wrappers. Chipping to edges of the wrappers.

About Philadelphia Rare Books & Manuscripts Co., LLC (PRB&M)

The Philadelphia Rare Books & Manuscripts Co. (PRB&M/SessaBks), LLC, offers “Early Books of Europe & the Americas – Other Rarities as Chance may Supply,” and the partners like to observe that its typical book is “interesting for more than one reason.” Established in 1984 and now located on the wide parade ground of a former U.S. Army Arsenal in a historic “Officers’ Quarters” building dating in its oldest part from 1820, the shop is open to visitors by appointment and additionally keeps “Open House” most Saturdays 12 (noon) to 4. Up front, two large bookrooms offer the shop’s early, antiquarian books, while old porches and other areas offer the browsable stocks of its “SessaBks” division — the “medium rare” and the “good used.” Visitors must plan to call for reservations and directions as the partners are not always available and different Arsenal entry gates are open depending on what day or time it is, while GPS will NOT get guests all the way to PRB&M’s door within the “compound.”“Our Bottom Line”: We pride ourselves on the intrinsic interest of our material,the accuracy of our cataloguing, and the integrity of our dealings. We aim, simply, to place good books and manuscripts where they will be zestfully used and possessed with satisfaction.
