Jamison, Kay Redfield  
Touched with Fire: Manic-Depressive Illness and the Artistic Temperament

Publisher: New York: The Free Press, 1993..
First Edition. 24 X 16 cm. Near Fine/Near Fine. Quarter light brown cloth, dark brown paper-covered boards, gilt titles on spine, red endpapers, xii, 370 pp, illustrations & charts, notes, index. Slight wear to spine ends. DJ lightly rubbed at extremities; in Brodart archival cover. From the DJ: "Jamison presents the now incontrovertible proof of the biological foundations of this frequently misunderstood disease, and applies what is known about the illness, and its closely related temperaments, to the lives of some of the world's greatest artists--Byron, van Gogh, Shelley, Poe, Melville, Schumann, Coleridge, Virginia Woolf, Burns, and many others. Byron's life, discussed in considerable detail, is used as a particularly fascinating example of the complex interaction among heredity, mood, temperament, and poetic work. Jamison reviews the substantial, rapidly accumulating, and remarkably consistent findings from biographic and scientific studies that demonstrate a markedly increased rate of severe mood disorders and suicide in artists, writers, and composers. She then discusses reasons why this link between mania, depression, and artistic creativity might exists." Shipping weight 2 lbs.
