        Anatomici summi septemdecim tabulae quas nunc primum edit atque explicat iisque alias addit de structura mammarum et de tunica testis vaginali.

      First edition Parma: [Giambattista Bodoni for] Regia typographia, 1775. A very fine copy. "The book is one of the finest anatomies of the eighteenth century because of its excellent illustrations and comprehensive commentary." (Heirs of Hippocrates). It is also one of the rarest of the few medical books printed at the celebrated Bodoni Press in Parma, as well as one of the few medical books issued by a private press. ?Norman 1888; Garrison-Morton 399.1; Heirs of Hippocrates 788; Pincus 248. "Santorini was generally acknowledged as the outstanding anatomist of his time. Many corrections and discoveries in the detailed anatomy of the different organs of the human body go back to Santorini. Even today a facial muscle (risorius), a pair of cartilages (comicula) of the larynx, the emissary veins of the skull, and a part of the superior and inferior turbinates of the ethmoid are named after Santorini. The work belongs to the best of its time, not only as regards the dissections and illustrations, but also as to the very elaborate commentary. Of the 21 plates 17 are by Santorini, two of the last four plates belongs to the anatomist Giovanni Battista Covoli, who was drowned, in 1768, in his youth. The other two plates belongs to the editor, Michael Girardi (1731 - 1797), a professor of anatomy in Parma, who also wrote the commentary to Santorini's plates, thus carrying out Covoli's plans. using, in part, posthumous writings of both Santorini and Covoli. All the 21 plates are done with a light crayon effect which, however, does not impair the anatomic clarity of the prints, but even brings out well the differences in the tissues. The unsigned plates were drawn by Giovanni Battista Piazetta (1682 - 1754). A woman, Florentia Marcella, engraved Santorini's plates under his personal supervision. Girardi's two plates are signed and were drawn by Ignazio Gasparetti and engraved by Giuseppe Patrini. The pictures deal with the facial muscles, the base and other parts of the brain, the organs of smell and hearing, the pharynx, the breasts, the heart, the diaphragm with the beginning of the thoracic duct, the stomach, the liver, the intestines, the pancreas, the ileocecal valve, the bladder, the muscles of the perineum, and the genitals. Covoli's plates represent the breasts, the tunics of the testicle and a six months' fetus." (Hagelin, Rare and Important Medical Books, pp. 112-113). Folio (325 x 235 mm), pp. [10], i-xxxv [1], 1-217 [3] and 42 beautifully engraved plates, contemporary half vellum, marbled baords, a very fine and fresh copy, entirely unrestored. Rare in such good condition.

        The Politician's Dictionary; or, a Summary of Political Knowledge... for the Use of those who would wish to understand whatever occurs in the science of Politics...

      London: Geo. Allen and William Lane, 1775. Two volumes, octavo; a fine copy, complete with half titles, in a simple contemporary binding of sheep. Extremely scarce: the anonymous 'Politician's Dictionary' contains considerable material on colonisation in general, but is of particular significance for its 34-page article on "The Southern Continent" in which the author discusses the geography of the Pacific, the familiar arguments for the existence of a southern continent and the voyages that have demonstrated its existence - Tasman, Quiros, Schouten, Dampier, etc. He continues with a physical description of the continent, the possibilities for its settlement, its uses for trade, agriculture, manufacture, a comparison with other colonial ventures, and the attractions of settling New Zealand and some of the Pacific islands at the same time. In short this is a highly important article which, drawing its information from Harris, De Brosses, Callander and others, discusses from an independent standpoint the advantages to be gained from colonising Australia.The date of publication is particularly interesting. English attention had begun to focus on Australia at the beginning of the 1770s with the first reports of Cook's discoveries, while in 1776 a stop had been put to transportation to America, 40,000 convicts having been sent there before the War of Independence. Parliamentary Acts of 1776 and 1779 enabled the courts to transport convicts to any destination and to hold them in convict hulks in the meantime. Not until 1779 did the Commons hear evidence on the suitability of New South Wales as a penal settlement, and it was another seven years before transportation to Botany Bay was decided upon.The Politician's Dictionary was intended to be read by the decision-makers of the time, and its Australian content is thus of high interest; other articles deal specifically with individual colonies and there are also general essays on Exportation, the North-west and North-east Passages, Privateering in the South-Seas, Settlement in the South-seas, Trade and Whale Fishery.This is a fine copy of a fascinating publication, apparently so far neglected by the historians of the movement to colonise Australia. Volume 1 here is in its first edition while volume 2 is marked second edition; the sole difference between the two editions of the second volume appears to have been the title-page, which may indicate a renewed attempt to market a poor seller. A comparison with the copy of the first edition in the Kress Library shows that the sheets that comprise the text of both editions are identical. The binding very slightly worn with one hinge just cracking, but in absolutely original condition.

        A Collection of Voyages chiefly in the Southern Atlantick Ocean. Published from Original M.S.S. By Alexander Dalrymple.

      London: Printed for the Author, Sold by J. Nourse [and others], 1775. Quarto, with three engraved charts; an excellent large copy (partly uncut) in a good modern binding of light sprinkled calf antique. The only edition: this very rare collection of voyages was published by Dalrymple to prove the existence of a southern land in the Atlantic rather than the Pacific, and to lobby for its colonisation.This book contains the first published account of the first English scientific voyage of discovery. In 1698 scientist and astronomer was appointed to command the Paramour to the South Atlantic with the express purpose of observing and measuring meteorological phenomena, magnetic variations, and the like. The Paramour reached as far south as 52° latitude before icebergs proved hazardous; Halley's account is here included to bolster Dalrymple's belief in a landmass located in the South Atlantic - as far as possible from James Cook's first voyage discoveries.In his curious and engaging preface, Dalrymple explains his flustered attempts to raise support for an expedition to seek the anticipated South Land, followed by a proposed constitution for the new colony. The list of 34 'Fundamental and Unalterable Laws' combine pragmatism, egalitarianism and self-interest in equal parts; for example, in Act 22 of the constitution we read 'Women not debarred from from Publick Office, but may enjoy their rights in the Publick Assembly on the same footing as men.'It is a complicated book, made up of six different sections, printed for Dalrymple in at least three places - Paris, Edinburgh, and London. Firstly Dalrymple urges the government to colonise the "Isla muy grande y amena"; this is followed by Edmund Halley's "Two Voyages made in 1698, 1699, and 1700", with two charts ("Islands of Ice, Rocks of Martin Vaz, and Trinidad"; and "Plan of Camarones Bay; Plan of the Bay and Harbour of St. Helena on the E. Coast of Patagonia"). Seixas y Lovera's "Geographical Description of Terra Magellanica" (first edition of this text in English); a description of Seixas's book had been published in Madrid in 1690. This extract gives the text of Antoine de la Roche's discovery of the island, in 45ºS, northwest of the Falklands, which Dalrymple names I. Grande. Seixas' book had included a translation of La Roche 'from a Description of La Roche, privately printed in London in 12 sheets, folded in 4 in 1678, in the French idiom... ', which we cannot find anywhere recorded. This is the first English edition.The book further includes Bouvet des Loziers "Voyage fait aux Terres Australes" in 1738-9, with a chart (this was printed for Dalrymple in Paris); an extract from the journal of Ducloz Guyot who sailed south in the Leon in 1753 (this was printed in Scotland); and finally meteorological details for the Falklands from John McBride's unpublished manuscript journal for 1766-7 held in the Admiralty.Although some of these pieces had been prepared as early as 1772, Dalrymple had put off publication intending to write a long historical introduction, much as he had done for his better-known work on South Sea voyages. In 1775, however, he left England hurriedly to return to Madras as a member of council, rehabilitated after his earlier clashes with the Madras government and the officers of the East India Company. Some of the pieces were prepared shortly after Cook's return from his first voyage, when Dalrymple must have been smarting again from his failure to be given command of the Endeavour voyage. Light embrowning to margins of first and final leaves.

        Théorie du paradoxe.

      Amsterdam [but Paris:] n.p., 1775. [Bound with:] Théorie du libelle, ou L'Art de calomnier avec fruit, dialogue philosophique, pour servir de supplément à La Théorie du paradoxe. [By Simon Nicolas Henri Linguet; and:] Réponse sérieuse à M. L[inguet], par l'auteur de La Théorie du paradoxe. 3 works bound in one, duodecimo (165 x 95 mm). Contemporary mottled calf, red morocco label, spine gilt in compartments with bee central tools, boards panelled in gilt, edges red, marbled endpapers. Contemporary label of the Bibliothèque du Ministère des Manufactures et du Commerce to both pastedowns. Late 19th-century bookplate to front pastedown and bibliographical annotation to front free endpaper verso. Two worm holes to rear joint, short closed tear to top margin of sig. Eii (pp. 99?100), not affecting text, slight surface toss to front free endpaper. A very good copy. First collected edition of these three libelles. André Morellet (1727?1819) wrote his Théorie du paradoxe (1775) as a rebuttal to Linguet's anti-Physiocratic treatise on politics Théorie des lois civiles (1767), a work which "offended the Économistes by its disregard of Natural Law and its championship of Asiatic Despotism over modern freedom" (William Oliver Coleman, Economics and Its Enemies, 2002, p. 26). Linguet "struck back with a production which is singular even by the standards of the literature of anti-economics: the Théorie du Libelle (1775). This purports to be a dialogue between Morellet and a youth, 'P'. In his chambers Morellet threatens the youth with ruin unless he pens a denunciation of Linguet, from whom the youth has earlier received a kindness. Morellet offers the distracted P a positive incentive: he will receive 2000 écus for this piece of literary assassination. But, adds Morellet, it will not be sufficient to merely chastise Linguet; Linguet must be silenced. Morellet then plucks from his pocket a manuscript that Linguet had planned to publish, but which Morellet had seized by the censors. 'He attacks our principles by the root. Goodbye to science and net product if this had appeared'. But it does not end well for Morellet. On the last page the valiant youth rebels against his corruptor and storms out defiant, leaving Morellet bewildered in the face of this unyielding purity. The Théorie du Libelle sold 4,000 copies within a week" (ibid., p. 27). From the library of French Physiocrat Louis Paul Abeille (1719?1807), Inspector General of Manufactures and Commerce in 1765 and secretary of commerce in 1769?83, in a binding with the tools of his homonymous animal. Abeille himself penned several examinations of the grain trade in the 1760s, arguing against government setting artificially low prices during periods of scarcity.

        AN ESSAY CONCERNING HUMAN UNDERSTANDING In Four Books, Locke, John, 2 Volumes, foldable plate, 17th Edition, 1775, rebound,

      1775 - AN ESSAY CONCERNING HUMAN UNDERSTANDING In Four Books, Locke, John, 2 Volumes, foldable plate, 17th Edition, 1775, rebound,In 1647, Locke was sent to the prestigious Westminster School in London under the sponsorship of Alexander Popham, a member of Parliament and his father's former commander. After completing studies there, he was admitted to Christ Church, Oxford, in the autumn of 1652 at the age of twenty. The dean of the college at the time was John Owen, vice-chancellor of the university. Although a capable student, Locke was irritated by the undergraduate curriculum of the time. He found the works of modern philosophers, such as René Descartes, more interesting than the classical material taught at the university. Through his friend Richard Lower, whom he knew from the Westminster School, Locke was introduced to medicine and the experimental philosophy being pursued at other universities and in the Royal Society, of which he eventually became a member. Locke was awarded a bachelor's degree in February 1656 and a master's degree in June 1658.[8] He obtained a bachelor of medicine in February 1675,[9] having studied medicine extensively during his time at Oxford and worked with such noted scientists and thinkers as Robert Boyle, Thomas Willis, Robert Hooke and Richard Lower. In 1666, he met Lord Anthony Ashley Cooper, 1st Earl of Shaftesbury, who had come to Oxford seeking treatment for a liver infection. Cooper was impressed with Locke and persuaded him to become part of his retinue. Locke had been looking for a career and in 1667 moved into Shaftesbury's home at Exeter House in London, to serve as Lord Ashley's personal physician. In London, Locke resumed his medical studies under the tutelage of Thomas Sydenham. Sydenham had a major effect on Locke's natural philosophical thinking – an effect that would become evident in An Essay Concerning Human Understanding. An Essay Concerning Human Understanding is a work by John Locke concerning the foundation of human knowledge and understanding. It first appeared in 1689 (although dated 1690) with the printed title An Essay Concerning Humane Understanding. He describes the mind at birth as a blank slate (tabula rasa, although he did not use those actual words) filled later through experience. The essay was one of the principal sources of empiricism in modern philosophy, and influenced many enlightenment philosophers, such as David Hume and George Berkeley. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        TRATADO DE HYDRODYNAMICA POR M. BOSSUT

      - DA ACADEMIA REAL DAS SCIENCIAS de Parîs, Examinador dos Ingenheiros &c. &c. TRADUZIDO E ABREVIADO do Francez. [Por?] COIMBRA NA REAL OFFICINA DA UNIVERSIDADE. M.DCC.LXXV. (1775] In 8.º 20x13 cm. com xv, 320 pags. Encadernação da época inteira de pele com nervos e ferros a ouro na lombada. Cortes das folhas carminados. Ilustrado com xiv gravuras desdobráveis com representação de experiências e de aparelhos científicos. Gravura com as armas reais portuguesas (D. José) na folha de rosto. Obra publicada à luz da reforma pombalina da universidade de Coimbra e dos estudos em Portugal. Nas folhas iniciais constam um privilégio régio e respetivo alvará assinado pelo próprio marquês de Pombal, retirando ao colégio dos Nobres as faculdades do ensino dos estudos e da impressão dos livros clássicos matemáticos, transferindo as mesmas em exclusivo para a Universidade de Coimbra. Obra rara. Primeira edição, desconhecida por Inocêncio que apenas refere edições oitocentistas. Inocêncio V, 75. ?José Monteiro da Rocha, do Conselho de Sua Majestade, Comendador da Ordem de Cristo, Cónego magistral da Sé de Leiria; primeiro Lente jubilado da Faculdade de Matemática, Director do Observatório astronómico, e Vice reitor da Universidade de Coimbra; Mestre do Príncipe da Beira; Socio e Director de classe da Academia Real das Ciências de Lisboa, etc. etc. - Nasceu em Canavezes, vila situada na margem direita do Tâmega, próxima de Amarante, a em 1734. Diz-se que sendo levado ainda na infância para o Brasil, cursára os estudos no colégio dos Jesuítas da Baía; que ali professára o instituto de Santo Inácio; e que por ocasião da expulsão destes regulares em 1759 ele preferira abandonar os seus consócios, deixando se ficar na mesma cidade, onde o governador que então era o encarregára da educação de seus filhos. Outros pretendem que, tendo entrado na ordem em Portugal, só depois da expulsão dela fosse parar á Bahia, d"onde voltou para o reino ao fim de alguns anos. Conta se como certo, que no tempo em que o Marquês de Pombal projectava a reforma da Universidade, o mandára chamar, em razão das informações que obtivera da sua capacidade e Ciência, achando se ele ainda então no Brasil, segundo uns e conforme outros em Coimbra, já de volta da Baía. Parece que não fôra sem grande receio que o ex-jesuíta comparecêra perante o ministro, o qual recebendo o com afabilidade lhe perguntou: «Qual das cadeiras da Universidade se julgava apto para reger?» - A isto respondeu modestamente o interrogado: «Aquela que os mais não quiserem.» Então o marquês, batendo lhe amigavelmente com a mão no ombro, lhe disse: «Sossegue, que há-de ser empregado!» Tratando-se para logo da reforma, foi-lhe incumbida, e por ele organizada e redigida a parte dos novos Estatutos da Universidade que diz respeito ás Ciências Naturais, e á Matemática. Traduziu e preparou depois alguns compêndios para uso das aulas respectivas, como abaixo se dirá. A sua fama de matemático insigne não ficou concentrada nos domínios portugueses; espalhou-se pela Europa, onde o seu nome é conhecido e mencionado com honra. D. João VI, quando príncipe regente, o chamou para a côrte, nomeando o Mestre do príncipe D. Pedro, e mais infantes, cargo que desempenhou até à saída da família real para o Brasil em 1807. Tendo comprado uma quinta no sítio de S. José de Ribamar, próximo de Lisboa, ali viveu. José Monteiro da Rocha legou por morte á Academia das Ciências todos os seus manuscritos, os quais foram mandados entregar a esta corporação pela Secretaria dos Negócios do Reino, contidos em um caixote, a cuja abertura se procedeu em o 1.° de Março de 1825. Tive ocasião de examinar o inventário que deles se formou, e que existe ainda arquivado na Academia. Versam pela maior parte sobre assumptos próprios das Ciências matemáticas, principalmente da astronomia, havendo entre eles várias memórias incompletas. Foi-lhe mandado conferir o grau de doutor por portarias do Marquês de Pombal, de 3 e 7 de Outubro de 1772.? Location/local

        MALAYSIA (PENANG – MALACCA) / INDONESIA (SUMATRA): CARTE PLATE DE LA PARTIE SEPTENTRIONALE DU DETROIT DE MALAC, DEPUIS LA RADE D'ACHEM JUSQU'A MALAC.

      Paris: Chez Demonville 1775 - Copper engraving (Good, strong dark engraving impression, discreet 8 cm repaired tear in blank field to the left of the word ‘Sumatra’ (seemingly due to natural paper flaw), minor professional restoration to blank margin at lower right corner outside of printed area, some areas of very light toning), 51 x 71.5 cm (20 x 28 inches). A fine example of J.-B. D’Après de Mannevillette’s scarce large-format sea chart of the Northern Straits of Malacca, including Penang and Malacca (Malaysia) and northern Sumatra (Indonesia), one of the most historically important charts of this key transport corridor. This attractive and fascinating map is one of the great historical sea charts of the Northern parts of the Straits of Malacca, long one of the world’s greatest maritime transport corridors. A scarce map, it was drafted by the great French hydrographer Jean-Baptiste D’Après de Mannevillette, and published within his sea atlas Le Neptune Oriental (1775). The chart’s coverage extends, on the Malaysian side, from just north of ‘Lancavy’ (Langkawi), down past ‘Penam’ (Penang) and south as far as Malacca; while on the Indonesian side it extends from ‘Achem’ (Acheh) in the north down to cover a third of the east coast of Sumatra. The seas are traversed by rhumb lines, while numerous bathymetric soundings and navigational hazards are marked. The chart is impressively accurate and was considered to be the best maritime map of the region of its time. While the shores are well delineated and the approaches to the main harbours are well understood, some of the places just inland from the shorelines still remained near complete enigmas to Europeans. For example, the area just east-southeast of Aceh features the annotation ‘Cette Cote est peu fréquente et très Acore’. J.-B. D' Après de Mannevillette: Great French Hydrographer - Jean-Baptiste D’Après de Mannevillette (1707 - 1780) was one of the most important hydrographers of the Enlightenment Era. He hailed from a minor, but well-connected, noble family and as a teenager apprenticed under the French Royal cartographer Guillaume De L’Isle. In 1728, he joined the Compagnie des Indes and travelled to China. During the voyage, he conducted astronomical observations that were radically better than those of his predecessors, and he corrected the geodetic coordinates of numerous places. D’Après de Mannevillette was horrified by the severe inaccuracies that appeared upon many of the key charts that the French government and trading companies relied upon. Upon his return to France, he embarked upon a mega-project to completely redraw all of the key French charts for the Indian Ocean and Asian navigation, including the route to China, the Red Sea, the coasts of India, Malaya, the northern parts of Indonesia, Indochina and China. He painstaking poured through the best sources, both French and foreign, and did an admirable job sorting the wheat from the chaff. D' Après de Mannevillette published his charts within a sea atlas entitled Le Neptune Oriental (Paris, 1745), which consisted 22 charts. The publication received rave reviews, as the excellent charts were highly valued for making practical navigation much easier and, in some cases, were even credited with saving lives. This led to his appointment to lead the new hydrographic office of the Compagnie des Indes called the Dépôt des Cartes et Plans de la Navigation des Indes. D' Après de Mannevillette then embarked on a three decade project to correct and greatly expand his atlas. The new editions of the Le Neptune Oriental, including the present chart, was issued in 1775. It included 67 charts were exquisitely engraved by the master Guillaume De la Haye. D' Après de Mannevillette’s charts were imbued with great authority and many were copied in other countries, with some being considered the charts of recorded as late as the 1840s. The original manuscript on which the present chart is based is today preserved in the British Library (Shirley, Maps in the Atla

        Veterum collatio numismatum, cum his, quae modo expendutur publica, & Regia auctoritate percussa

      Valentiae Edetanorum, Josephi Estevan et Cervera 1775 - 8º mayor (20,4 x 14,7 cm). VIII-367 p. Grabado en portada, viñeta, culs de lamp y capitulares en madera. Texto latín y castellano. Pergamino de época. Diego de Covarrubias fue una de las grandes figuras del humanismo español y del pensamiento jurídico europeo del siglo XVI, además de un hombre de estado y un bibliófilo. Ocupó cargos de relevancia en la Corte de Felipe II. La primera edición de su Veterum collatio numismatum vio la luz en 1556. La presente edición corrió a cargo de Berni y Catalá. “El Veterum collatio es un escrito muy representativo de las teorías económicas promulgadas por la llamada Escuela de Salamanca. En efecto, no se trata propiamente de una obra numismática sino de un tratado sobre economía. Su punto de partida es la devaluación del maravedí castellano, analizando la autoridad del gobernante para efectuar o no esas devaluaciones, y su herramienta, la estadística con la evolución de los precios. En su análisis recurre como elemento de comparación y continuo referente sobre todo a la moneda romana, pero también a la indígena hispana y la visigoda, estableciendo sus equivalencias con la castellana. El resultado revela su buen conocimiento de la amonedación antigua, descrita en sus aspectos más significativos desde el punto de vista económico: metales, pesos y valores. Como reflejo de las dos situaciones históricas contrapuestas, en una obra escrita básicamente en latín emplea el castellano en los capítulos V y VI con el estudio sobre el maravedí. El texto no llega a desarrollar una teoría monetaria completamente articulada, pero avanza los principios de la teoría cuantitativa del dinero que desarrollarán otros integrantes de la Escuela de Salamanca. Este interés por los estudios económicos aparece como una peculiaridad de la Numismática española del XVI por contraste con la europea, mucho más preocupada por los problemas iconográficos salvo escasas excepciones, lo cual se explica en una situación histórica que conjuga por una parte la expansión imperial, con el Imperio Romano como referente propagandístico, y por otra la inestabilidad económica y particularmente monetaria debido a las políticas de Carlos V y Felipe II y sus prácticas financieras.” [Mercedes Oria Segura, La Antigüedad en el Fondo Antiguo de la Universidad de Sevilla] [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        An Inquiry into the Principles of the Distribution of Wealth most conducive to Human Happiness. A New Edition by William Pare.

      Octavo. XXXII, 463 pages. Hardcover (contemporary, blindstamped publisher's cloth covered boards). The corners stronger bumped but this extremely rare volume in overall good to very good- condition with some clear signs of external wear. This second edition of special interest because of the editor William Pare's lengthy preface in which he talks about Thompson's philosophy, biography and his early decision to turn vegetarian and teetotal. William Thompson (1775 28 March 1833) was an Irish political and philosophical writer and social reformer, developing from utilitarianism into an early critic of capitalist exploitation whose ideas influenced the Cooperative, Trade Union and Chartist movements as well as Karl Marx. Born into the Anglo-Irish Ascendancy of wealthy landowners and merchants of Cork society, his attempt to will his estate to the cooperative movement after his death sparked a long court case as his family fought successfully to have the will annulled. According to E. T. Craig, this decision to will his estate to the cooperative movement was taken after a visit to the pioneering Ralahine Commune. Born in Cork, William was the son and heir of one of the most prosperous merchants of that city, Alderman John Thompson, who held, amongst other offices, that of Mayor in 1794. William inherited the small trading fleet and landed estate near Glandore, West Cork after his father's death in 1814. Rejecting the role of absentee landlord commonly led by those of a similar situation, William based his living quarters on the estate and despite many travels, invested much time with the tenants on the estate introducing agricultural innovations, services and education for children aimed at improving the welfare and prosperity of the families present. Victim of weak health from an early age, Thompson became a non-smoker, teetotaller and vegetarian for the last 13 years of his life. These abstemious habits, he explained helped him in concentrating on his reading and writing. Nonetheless, by the 1830s he was suffering from a chest affliction that finally killed him on 28 March 1833. He had never married and left no direct heir. An enthusiastic student of the writers and ideas of the Enlightenment, particularly Condorcet, Thompson became a convinced egalitarian and democrat. His support for the French Revolution earned him the label of "Red Republican" from Cork society and his support for advocates of Catholic emancipation in elections further alienated him from the rest of his wealthy Protestant kith and kin. Thompson was greatly impressed by the utilitarianism of Jeremy Bentham with whom he corresponded and established a friendship, later staying at the English philosopher's house for several months in 182122 while visiting London. As well as Bentham, Thompson read and corresponded with other utilitarian contemporaries such as James Mill and was influenced, both positively and negatively, by William Godwin and Thomas Malthus. His desire to overcome the limitations of Godwin's "intellectual speculations" and Malthus's "mechanical speculations" led him to propose a new synthesis: social science Thompson was the first to introduce this term would combine political economy's concern with scientific materialism with utilitarianism's concern with rational morality. It was the contrasting ideas of Godwin and Malthus that spurred Thompson into the project of research into the role of distribution in political economy that led him to London and, in 1824, the publication of "An Inquiry into the Principles of the Distribution of Wealth most conducive to Human Happiness" . Thompson had also become acquainted with the work of the French utopian socialists including Charles Fourier, Henri Saint-Simon and the economist Sismondi. In the Inquiry, Thompson follows the line of the labour theory of value put forward by Adam Smith. However he characterises the appropriation of the lion's share of surplus value by the capitalist owner of the tools of production as exploitation. He rejects the Malthus/Mill proposition that any increase in the wage of the workers can only result in their further immiseration, noting the self-serving nature of this theory for capitalists pressing for legislation to outlaw workers efforts to raise their wages. By applying the utilitarian principle of "the greatest good for the greatest number" to the existing and possible alternative schemes of distribution, Thompson comes down on the side of an egalitarian distribution of the product. One of Thompson's colleagues in the Cooperative movement, John Minter Morgan, made the observation that he was the first to coin the term competitive to describe the existing economic system. The case for the originality of this work is further made by Max Nettlau who states: "[Thompson's] book, however, discloses his own evolution having started with a demand for the full product of labour as well as the regulation of distribution, he ended up with his own conversion to communism, that is, unlimited distribution." In 1827 fellow "Ricardian socialist" Thomas Hodgskin published Labour Defended which also characterised the appropriation of the lion's share of the fruits of production by landlord and capitalist as exploitation defrauding the worker of the full product of their labour. However, Hodgskin proposed that the road to economic justice for the labourer was through a reformed competitive system. Thompson replied with Labor Rewarded defending cooperative communism against Hodgskin's unequal wages. Although he rejected the political and economic implications of Malthus' essay on population, Thompson recognised that, particularly in Ireland, unrestrained population growth did pose the threat of rising poverty. As such he was like Bentham and Francis Place an advocate of the benefits of contraception. Thompson's development of a critique of the contemporary status of women was most strongly influenced by his long-term close friendship with Anna Wheeler. He had met Wheeler while staying with Bentham and they moved in those utilitarian circles that included James Mill. It was the publication of the latter's "On Government" which called for the vote for men only, that aroused the fervent opposition of both Wheeler and Thompson and to the rebuttal in Appeal of One Half the Human Race... Thompson and others of the Cooperative movement have tended to be somewhat unfairly subsumed under the political label of Owenism. In fact, although his writings and social experiments at New Lanark had helped to bring the cooperative movement together, many, Thompson included, were critical of Owen's authoritarian and anti-democratic tendencies. Thompson further distrusted Owen's courtship of rich and powerful patrons, believing that the rich as a class could be never be expected to be in favour of any project of emancipation for the labouring poor as this would threaten their privilege. He also believed in the necessity of the workers in any co-operative community having eventual security of ownership of the community's land and capital property. He gained a considerable following within the cooperative movement for these positions and it was to distinguish themselves from Owen's positions that this wing of the movement began to adopt the label of "socialist or communionist" (Letter to "The Cooperative Magazine", London, November 1827, cited by OED as first documented use of socialist) rather than "Owenist". These differences led to open confrontation between Thompson and Owen at the Third Cooperative Congress held in 1832 in London. Owen, perhaps discouraged by the failure of his attempted community at New Harmony, maintained that it was necessary to wait for Government and Stock Exchange support and investment into large scale communities. Thompson and his supporters contended that they must move towards establishing independent small scale communities based on the movement's own resources. The argument was not resolved at that congress and by the following one Thompson was unable to attend probably as a result of the illness that was to lead to his death in another five months. Karl Marx had come across Thompson's work on a visit to Manchester in 1845 and cites it in passing in The Poverty of Philosophy (1847) and also in Capital itself. However the same can be said of other of the proto-socialist political economists such as Thomas Hodgskin, John Gray, John Francis Bray. It seems surprising then, that the likes of Beatrice and Sidney Webb would characterise Marx as "the illustrious disciple" of Thompson and Hodgskin. Sentiments also echoed by the likes of Harold Laski and other British historians of socialism. In this they were accepting the earlier thesis in Anton Menger's Right to the Whole Produce of Labour (1899), amalgamating all the aforementioned into a homogeneous category of Ricardian socialists which obscured the important differences between Thompson's communist critique of Hodgskin's "market libertarian" position. (Wikipedia) ______________________ PARE, WILLIAM (1805-1873), co-operator, son of John Pare, cabinet-maker and upholsterer, of Birmingham, was born there in 1805. He was apprenticed to his father, but became a reporter. He subsequently engaged in business as a tobacco and cigar retailer in New Street, Birmingham. Early in life he helped to found a mechanics' institution in that town, and joined the small group of men who were trying to obtain a reform in the parliamentary representation. He also took part in the agitation for the repeal of the test and corporation acts, and for Roman catholic emancipation. On the formation of the 'Political Union in 1830' he became a member of the council, when he advocated extension of the suffrage, shorter parliaments, and vote by ballot. On 7 Aug. 1832 he drafted and moved in the parish church three resolutions against the payment of church rates. The petition, then adopted and sent by him to Hume, was the last presented to the unreformed House of Commons. When the 'Reformers' Registration Society' was established in 1835, Pare became secretary. He was the first registrar of Birmingham under the act legalising civil marriages (6 and 7 Will. iv. c. 85). As a member of the charter committee appointed in 1837, he actively promoted the incorporation of the town, and was a member of the first town council. Meanwhile Pare had become widely known as an able disciple of Robert Owen [q. v.] Converted to his teaching by William Thompson of Cork, Pare was one of the founders in 1828 of the first Birmingham co-operative society, at the anniversary of which he presided on 28 Dec. 1829. In the following year he attracted notice by the lectures he gave in support of co-operation at Liverpool, Manchester, Bolton, Chester, and other places. From May 1830, when the first co-operative congress was held at Manchester, until 1838, he constantly attended the congresses as one of the secretaries. From 1832 he advocated the establishment of labour exchanges, and mainly through his efforts the one at Birmingham had some success. He was one of the trustees of the property bequeathed for co-operative purposes by William Thompson of Cork in 1833 and when the heirs-at-law instituted an action in the Irish court of chancery, he went to Ireland to watch over the interests of the trustees, lecturing at various co-operative centres on the way. He was vice-president of Owen's society, 'The Association of all Classes of all Nations,' of which the central board was established at Birmingham. He continued an active member of the board until its removal to London in 1840. Forced to resign his registrarship in consequence of his socialistic opinions, he left Birmingham in November 1842, when he was presented with a public testimonial. From 1842 to 1844 he was acting-governor of Owen's community at Queenwood, Hampshire. He removed to London in 1844, and as a railway statist he was frequently employed to prepare
