        Recueil de vues et fabriques pittoresques d'Italie, dessinées d'après nature, et publiées par C. Bourgeois, peintre.

      Paris, chez l'auteur, Basset, s.d., (1804-1806), - in-folio, 96 planches gravées d'après Bourgeois, la plupart représentant deux vues, demi-basane bouteille, dos lisse orné de guirlandes et fleurons dorés, coins en vélin, tranches jaunes, couverture de livraison conservée (reliure de l'époque). Coiffe supérieure et coins abîmés. Il est extrêmement rare de rencontrer, comme ici, cet album complet des 16 livraisons et des 96 planches qui doivent le composer (et non 72 comme indiquée sur la couverture conservée). Florent-Fidèle-Constant Bourgeois dit Bourgeois du Castelet (1767-1841), ancien militaire et élève de David, vécut longtemps en Italie, et il a produit quantité de vues et paysages italiens, spécialement de Rome et de ses environs (Grotta Ferrata, Castel Gandolfo, Tivoli, etc.). Il ne faut pas confondre notre recueil avec un second, produit en 1826-27, et intitulé Nouveau recueil de vues et fabriques pittoresques d'Italie dessinées d'après nature en 1823 et lithographiées, lequel ne comprend que 12 planches en trois livraisons. En France, sa gravure fut toujours plus estimée que sa peinture, et, malgré de nombreuses commandes officielles sous l'Empire, la plupart de ses tableaux ont eté rachetés par des collectionneurs étrangers. Brunet I, 1178.

        Specimen historiae Arabum.

      Oxford: Clarendon Press, , 1806. Accessit Historia veterum arabum ex Abu'l Feda: cura Antonii I. Sylvestre de Sacy. Edidit Josephus White. Quarto (249 x 184 mm). Early-20th-century pebble-grain purple cloth, fore edge untrimmed. Engraved portrait frontispiece, vignette to title page. From the collection of British Arabist Colonel Samuel Barrett Miles (1838-1914), with bookplate noting his wife's bequest of his books to Bath Public Library in 1920, and associated manuscript shelf-marks and blind stamps as usual. With the corrigenda slip tipped to p. 33. Sunned overall (unevenly on the boards), contents browned, damp-stain to frontispiece, title page, gradually receding over the first 50 or so pages, contemporary inked correction to p. 449. A very good copy. Second edition of a work which represented "a revolution in Arabic studies" (ODNB) on first publication in 1650. Pococke (1604-1691) was the first Laudian professor of Arabic at Oxford. In 1631 he travelled to Aleppo as chaplain to the Levant Company, and returned to England five years later with a large collection of Arabic manuscripts which included the "Mukhtasar fi'l-duwal", an account of Islamic history written by a 13th-century Syrian bishop Bar Hebraeus (known in Arabic as Abu'l-Faraj) and far superior to anything other sources then available in Europe. He published a small excerpt in Arabic and Latin, with, most importantly, "a lengthy commentary…illuminating Islamic history, geography, mythology, religion, and literature from a wealth of sources, mostly unpublished and previously unknown in Europe … It is his greatest work, and of permanent scholarly value" (ibid.) This edition includes as an appendix the section on the Arabs before Islam from the Mukhtasar ta'rikh al-bashar ("Abridged History of Mankind") of Syrian prince Abu'l-Fida' (1273–1331), which is here printed with the Latin translation and notes of the pre-eminent 19th-century French orientalist Sylvestre de Sacy. The editor, Joseph White (1746-1814) was elected unanimously to the Laudian chair in 1774, and was also a highly accomplished Hebrew scholar.

      - Christophe Louis Léon Juchault de Lamoricière (ou La Moricière), (Nantes, 1806 à Nantes - Prouzel somme, 1865), est un officier et homme politique français. Promu général de division en 1843, au cours des campagnes coloniales dirigées par le général Bugeaud contre l'émir Abd el-Kader en Algérie, Lamoricière s'investit également dans le domaine politique et se fait élire à l'Assemblée législative. Il est nommé ministre de la Guerre en 1848, et participe activement à la répression des Journées de Juin. A cause de son opposition à Louis-Napoléon Bonaparte, après le coup d'état du 2 Decembre 1851, il est arrêté, comme Tocqueville, et sera exilé au cours des années 1850.

        A Treatise on Indigence; exhibiting a general view of the national resources for productive labour; with propositions for ameliorating the condition of the poor, and improving the moral habits and increasing the comforts of the labouring people, particularly the rising generation; by regulations of political economy, calculated to prevent poverty from descending into indigence, to produce sobriety and industry, to reduce the Parochial Rates of the Kingdom, and generally to promote the Happiness and Security of the community at large, by the diminution of moral and penal offences, and the future prevention of crimes.

      London: J. Hatchard. 1806 - Octavo (209 x 136 mm). Recent quarter calf and marbled boards, spine lettered gilt, green laid paper endpapers. Short tear in the gutter at the head of the title, title a little dust soiled at head, occasional light spotting; a very good copy. Complete with folding table at p. 23 and final advertisement leaf. Ownership stamp of the Women's University Settlement, Nelson Square, Southwark to front free endpaper and to upper margin of p. 83, shelf mark to title in ink. First edition of Colquhoun's major work on the question of poverty and pauperism, its relationship to crime and disorder and the need for a new comprehensive system of police. This valuable work contains plans for a board of education, national savings bank with state guarantee to depositoers, a system of reproductive work for the unemployed, a national poor-rate uniformly assessed, and the issue of a police gazette, containing statistics of crime and descriptions of the persons of offenders. Colquhoun begins with a clear definition of "poverty" which is to be distinguished from "indigence". In this he was following the lead of Jeremy Bentham, and his sentiments clearly echo those of Bentham. He states that poverty is "an indispensable and necessary ingredient in civil society", and is "that state and condition . where the individual has no surplus in store, and, consequently, no property but what is derived from the constant exercise of industry in the various occupations of life; or in other words, it is the state of every one who must labour for subsistence. Poverty is therefore a most necessary and indispensable ingredient in society, without which nations and communities could not exist in a state of civilization." "Indigence therefore and not poverty, is the evil. It is that condition in society which implies want, misery, and distress. It is the state of any one who is destitute of the means of subsistence, and is unable to labour to produce it to the extent nature requires. The natural source of subsistence is the labour of the individual; while that remains with him he is denominated poor when it fails in whole or in part he becomes indigent." This definition of indigence precedes a discussion about an "appropriate system of police," "a system of pauper and general police," and "the board a channel of instructions by means of police gazette." "By the term police we are to understand all those regulations in a country which apply to the comfort, convenience, and safety of the inhabitants, whether it regards their security against the calamity of indigence, or the effects produced by moral and criminal offences." Colquhoun makes it clear that by "police" he means all the modes of control and prevention which society can bring to bear to maintain social order. Once an offence or offences have been committed it is no longer a matter of police but a matter for the magistrates. Colquhoun regrets that at the time of writing "the whole system of the national police is without that watchful and superintending agency which is indispensably necessary to produce a preventive effect; and to this cause is chiefly attributed the great increase of indigence, vagrancy, and crimes." From these arguments it is possible to see that for Colquhoun, police and poor law are one of the same; in fact poor-law is subsumed within and becomes an aspect of Police in its original wider sense. Colquhoun's concept, therefore, of a system of police, is of a central office of social policy, working under the aegis of the Home Department, whose function is essentially preventive and whose object apart from the narrow ones of preventing crime and securing the property of the individual, is social amelioration in the widest sense especially including all that tends to the better education and employment of the poor.

        TOOSO TAISE SHURAN: COMPLIATION OF WRITINGS ON MEASELS AND SMALL POX.

      - [Edo 1806, Suharaya]. Stitched brown wrs., very good, 3 vol. set, complete, minor scuffing to covers, contents clean, woodblock printed on hand-made Washi paper, 19 x 26 cm., [35 +38+45] double folded leaves, clean, complete, 2nd edition. The original work was written by Oh Jaku Gen in Ming in Chinese in Meiwa 8th, 1771, then adapted to be Kambun, a form of easily read Japanese, with Furigana. It was published by Ko-bun-do in Kyoto * The work is illustrated with two examples and enhanced with several figures, one shows a youth with many 'poxes' on his face. * THE PREFACE DATE: The preface cites a 1771 date indicating this work was issued first in that year, in an edition of 2 volumes. The preface was then reprinted again in our copy, which is most likely the second revised edition, complete in 3 volumes. *** FIRST ARRIVAL OF MEASLES TO JAPAN: Measles first showed up in Japan in 988 A.D., it was known then as "Akamogasa" or "red pox." In both 1824 & 1862, there was a great epidemic of measles. *** CONDITION: The book covers were bound in blind-stamped swastika covers. There is some rubbing on the front & back covers near the edges of all volumes. The book is firmly bound and stitched. The contents are exceptionally bright and clean, free from any worming or issues. The text is solid, and very fresh. By and large an excellent example. *** RARITY: There are very few monographs from early China or Japan on the subject of Measles or Small pox. There was confusion about both of them in the 17-19th centuries in both countries. While there are recorded epidemics of both, little was known about curing or treating these horrible diseases. Large numbers of children commonly died of this "pox." *** THE AUTHOR'S ALTERNATE NAME: This author use an alternate, HATA Genji, who summarized the earlier original edition. *** REFERENCES: The work is not listed in any of the usual and standard references, although we have checked all of the below: . MESTLER, Gordon E.: A GALAXY OF OLD JAPANESE MEDICAL BOOKS WITH MISCELLANEOUS NOTES ON EARLY MEDICINE IN JAPAN: cites several other books on measles & small pox on pages 200, 169, 293, 204, 206, 298, 205, 293 et. al. * FUJIKAWA, Y.: JAPANESE MEDICINE: measles: pp.75,76,82,84, & 86. * WHITNEY, Willis N.: NOTES ON THE HISTORY OF MEDICAL PROGRESS IN JAPAN. See many others on measles listed on p.446. * KERLEN, H.: CATALOGUE OF PRE-MEIJI JAPANESE BOOKS & MAPS IN PUBLIC COLLECTIONS IN THE NETHERLANDS. ***

        Lichtleiter, eine Erfindung zur Anschauung innerer Theile und Krankheiten (pp.107-124, 2 doppelblattgr. Kupfertafeln.

      Journ. pract. Heilk., 24/1. - Jena, Academ. Bhdlg., 1806, 8, 176 pp., 182, (2) 190, (2), 191, (1), mit 3 gefalteten Kupfertafeln, marmor. Pappband der Zeit mit Rückenschild feines Exemplar. Erste Ausgabe !Als Philipp Bozzini (1783-1809) 1806 seinen "Lichtleiter" vorstellte, begann das eigentliche Zeitalter moderner Endoskopie. Die Konstruktion des damals erst 27jährigen Frankfurter Arztes war ein relativ einfaches, geniales Gerät. In das Innere der Körperhöhlen gelenkte Lichtstrahlen wurden zum Auge des Betrachters zurückgeleitet. Das Instrument besteht aus dem 'Lichtbehälter' und den für die einzelnen bestimmten 'Lichtleitungen', das sind entsprechend geformte Röhren und 'Winkelleitungen', die in das zu untersuchende Hohlorgan eingeführt werden. Der 'Lichtbehälter' ist wie eine Vase geformt. Vorn ist eine runde Öffnung, die durch eine Scheidewand getrennt ist. In der einen Kammer treten die Strahlen der Lichtquelle aus, in der anderen, der Reflektionsleitung, gelangen sie zum Auge zurück. Dies war die erste Konzeption eines Endoskopes, die in den Grundzügen bis heute gültig ist. Der frühe Tod Bozzinis, er starb mit knapp 30 Jahren am Typhus, brachte ihn um die Erfolge seiner Erfindung. Die 'berufenen' Fachgenossen erkannten den Wert seiner Erfindung nicht. Kleinliche Kritik überwog, Bozzinis Instrument geriet in Vergessenheit. Erst Désormeaux und später Nitze verhalfen der Endoskopie zum Durchbruch.First Edition. The rise of Endoscopy in the modern sense of the term began in the early nineteenth century when Bozzini of Frankfurt-on-Main in 1806, realized the value of inspecting body cavities with the aid of artifical ligth. In his light conductor or "Lichtleiter" the round opening through which the light shone was made of brass. Half the orifice was for light and half for sight. Where straight rays could not be used, a mirror was attached to a reflecting conductor. Bozzini used such an appliance in examinations and operations on the uterus and rectum. It was true, however, that most of the instrument that immediately followed the first 'Lichtleiter' were derived from Bozzini's brainchild.G. Mann, Der Frankfurter Lichtleiter. In: Medizinhist.

        Chart of the Harbours of Salem, Marblehead, Beverly and Manchester from a Survey taken in the years 1804, 5, & 6

      [Salem, Massachusetts], 1806. Hand-coloured engraved map, engraved by Hooker & Fairman, on laid paper watermarked "J. Whatman 1804" Minor tears in top margin repaired. Sheet size: 21 1/2 x 27 inches. An American cartographic rarity: the true first edition of Bowditch's famed chart of the coasts of Salem, Beverly, Marblehead and Manchester. Bowditch's separately-issued chart, the first accurate chart of those waters, was among the earliest nautical charts based on first-hand surveys by an American to be published in the United States.Born in Salem, Massachusetts, the son of a local cooper and shipmaster, at a young age Nathaniel Bowditch was apprenticed to a local ship chandlery. With his intelligence and mathematical skills evidenced in abundance, he was encouraged by three local Harvard-trained scholars and inventors: Nathan Read, John Prince, and William Bentley. Under their tutelage, he studied Latin, French, mathematics, natural philosophy, astronomy, navigation and he constructed his own surveying equipment. In 1794, Bowditch assisted Bentley and shipmaster John Gibaut in a land survey of Salem. Gibaut shortly thereafter appointed Bowditch as his clerk on a voyage to the East Indies. Between 1795 and 1803, Bowditch sailed to the East Indies five times, continuing his studies on chartmaking and navigation on board. By his final voyage, Bowditch served as master and part-owner of the ship.Practical sailing experience combined with his studies of astronomy made Bowditch one of the best navigators in America. In 1799, publisher and chartseller Edmund Blunt hired Bowditch to revise John Hamilton Moore's New Practical Navigator. Bowditch added much in the way of additional information to the work and contributed so much in the way of revisions, that Blunt decided to completely redo the book, publishing it in 1802 with a new title and with Bowditch listed as the author. Bowditch's American Practical Navigator would prove a fundamentally important work on the art of navigation, with scores of tables and diagrams, and a wealth of practical information, becoming known as the Seamen's Bible.Around the time of the first publication of Bowditch's Navigator, while serving as the President of the Essex Fire and Marine Insurance Company, it became evident that the existing charts of the waters around Salem and Marblehead were deficient. In a rare, separately-published 30-page text of sailing directions to accompany the present chart, Bowditch writes:"The only chart of the entrance of the harbours of Salem, Marblehead, Beverly and Manchester, is that published from the survey taken by Holland and his assistants, just before the American revolutionary war. That period was particularly unfavorable for obtaining an accurate survey of the sea-coast, as the Americans were generally opposed to its being done at that time, fearing that it would give the British the great advantage of being able safely to enter with their armed ships into any of our harbours. In consequence of this, Holland received but little assistance from our pilots, in exploring the sunken ledges and shoals off our harbours; and as it was almost impossible to discover them without such assistance, they were generally omitted by him. This deficiency renders those charts in a great degree useless, though they are accurate as respects the bearings and distances of the islands and the coast. From the time of Holland's survey, till the year 1794, nothing was towards obtaining a more accurate chart. In that year a general survey of the state was ordered by the legislature; but it is to be regretted that this survey was not directed to be made in a manner calculated to ensure accuracy in the execution of it ... the laudable intentions of the legislature were very imperfectly carried into execution; and the map ... was such as was to have been expected."He continues by describing his first-hand surveys to produce this chart by himself, assisted by George Burchmore & William Ropes III: "To do this an excellent theodolite, made by Adams, furnished with a telescope and cross wires, was procured to measure the angles and a Rood chain to measure the distances. With these instruments, the bearings and distances of the shore from Gales point in Manchester, to Phillips point in Lynn (the two extremities of this survey) were carefully ascertained; and the necessary observations were taken for fixing with accuracy the situation of the islands. Soundings were taken throughout the whole extent of the survey, particularly round the dangerous ledges and shoals, several of which were explored, that were hardly known by our best pilots ... most of which were so little known, that names had not been given to them; and during the whole time employed on the survey, which was above eighty days, from two to five persons were hired to assist in sounding and measuring. From these observations the new chart was plotted off, and an accurate engraving of it made, &c."Bowditch's original copperplate has survived and is located in the Peabody Essex Museum. Its survival, however, has resulted in later restrikes, as early as a second edition in 1834 (with additions by Charles M. Endicott listed in seven lines of text below the compass rose) but including others into the 20th century. However, the present first edition of the chart, without the Endicott additions and on paper watermarked 1804, is extremely rare. We find no other examples of the first edition chart on the market, and with only three institutional holdings (Boston Athenaeum, Boston Public Library and Harvard).Guthorn, United States Coastal Charts, p.34 (1834 edition); Garver, Surveying the Shore, p.51.

        THE NEW JAMAICA ALMANACK, AND REGISTER, FOR THE YEAR OF OUR LORD 1806.

      Kingston: Stevenson and Smith, [1806]. - 184,[16]pp. The calendar interleaved with blank, plus additional blanks in rear. 12mo. Contemporary green wallet-style morocco. Very good. Some early Jamaica almanacs, like the present, include a page showing the Jewish calendar, which "would seem to be an indication of the importance of Jewish residents in the eyes of Christian Jamaicans" (B. W. Korn, "The Haham DeCordova of Jamaica," in AMERICAN JEWISH ARCHIVES 18:2 [Nov. 1966]). These Jamaican calendars represent some of the earliest appearances of Hebrew font in the Western Hemisphere, in a publication intended specifically for Jews. Earlier works with Hebrew type, such as Judah Monis' HEBREW GRAMMAR, were intended for a Gentile audience. Beyond the calendar, this almanac is filled with information about the colony, including pages devoted to each parish with details on population (including slaves), public office holders, court sessions, etc.
