        An English creamware commemorative jug.

      Circa 1806 - With loop handle, printed in black with a half-length portrait of Nelson, titled above, England Expects every Man to do his Duty and ADMIRAL LORD NELSON/Born Sept 29th. 1758 - Died Oct 21st 1805./Aged 47, below, the reverse with a map and text documenting the Battle of Trafalgar. 5¾ in. high(14.6 cm.) Commemorative jug issued to celebrate the great naval victory won by Admiral Lord Nelson over the allied French and Spanish fleets at the Battle of Trafalgar, on 21st October 1805. Lord Nelson is regarded as Britain's greatest naval hero; renowned as a charismatic leader and a master tactician in battle, he led the British fleet to a famous victory over the Franco-Spanish fleet, despite being heavily out-numbered; his reputation was cemented by his dramatic death towards the end of the day, as the battle was won. The jug bears a portrait of Nelson, with his famous general order sent at the commencement of the battle placed above, with a plan of the battle site, with the two fleets coming together, the British arranged in two columns approaching the French fleet at right-angles - crossing the 'T' as the manoeuvre is known - which allowed the British to divide the enemy into three groups, and destroy each in detail. The victory ended the threat of French invasion, and with that Napoleon's attention turned eastwards; the battle also led on to the British command of the sea for more than a century.

Library stamps on titles and last leaves, library bookplates.Very clean internally. Second edition of "the best historical account to the time" (Garrison-Morton 4920) on mental illness and its pathology. Hunter & Macalpine, Three Hundred Years of Psychiatry (1963) 467-71: "Arnold was one of the famous provincial psychiatrists of the second half of the eighteenth century who owned a large private madhouse - juding from the number of patients admitted the third largest in the country - and acted as psychiatric consultant for a wide area. Like many owners of private asylums he took in a number of pauper lunatics at the charge of their parish but in adidition offered to receive 'into the lower department of his house in the Bond-Street, in Leciester, on the reduced terms of eight shillings per week' ten lunatics from families in distressed circumstances but 'unwiling to apply for the aid of a parish', and over and above these 'Two others free of all expense whatever... By this 'generous and patriotic institution' his private madhouse became truly a 'Hospital for Lunatics' until the Leicester Lunatic Asylum project built at his instigation in 1781 was opened in 1794 in the grounds of the Infirmary with him as its first physician."Unlike Perfect (1797) who aimed at no more than prseenting a variety of cases to illustrate his cures, and Pargeter (1792) who set out to show the possibility of management by the direct human approach, Arnold wrote a much more ambitious and systematic treatise, really a textbook. It was the first two-volume work on psychiatry in this country [England] and modern also for the point Arnold made of giving accurate references for all his quotations having himself 'frequently experienced much inconvenience; often a great waste, and sometimes a total loss, both of time, and labour; by a loose and negligent mode of reference from one author to another'. Volume I was devoted to classification with a chapter on post mortem appearances; volume II dealt with the causes of insanity. A third volume on treatment to which I and II were preparatory appeared independently. . . . " :

        Isoama-Ibo primer.

      Crowther (1806?-91) was the "Missionary Bishop of the Niger Territory" and, in fact, the first African Anglican bishop in Nigeria. A Yoruba, he was born in Osogun and prior to conversion to Christianity was named Ajayi. Captured as a youth with his family by Muslim Fulani slavers, he and his family were freed before being transported out of Africa by English naval forces. Subsequently he converted to Anglicism and was educated by missionaries. A gifted linguist, he produced portions of the Bible and the Book of Common Prayer in Yoruba in addition to this Igbo religious primer, as well as a grammar and vocabulary in that language. This is the second edition (first was 1857) of => the first work in the Igbo language, a member of the Niger-Congo family. It includes the basic orthography, phonemes, dipthongs, etc., of the language, reading passages, numerals (ordinal and cardinal), translations from the scriptures (Luke and Psalms), the Ten Commandments, and the Lord's Prayer. Crowther's translations from Luke preceded the first printing of a book of the Bible (Matthew) in Igbo by three years. Provenance: Gift inscription on front pastedown, "To the Rev. C. W. J. Bowles with grateful thanks for his help and fellowship during his visit to the Niger Diocese, May 1950. Cecil John Patterson, Bishop of The Niger. Onitsha, Nigeria." Searches of NUC and WorldCat locate only three copies of this edition in U.S. libraries and none of the 1857 printing.

        Cours complet d'harmonie et de composition d'après une théorie neuve et générale de la musique basée sur des principes incontestables, puisés dans la nature, d'accord avec tous les bons ouvrages pratiques, anciens ou modernes, et mis, par leur clarté, à la portée de tout le monde. Auquel il est joint : Exposé succinct du seul système musical qui soit vraiment fondé et complet ; Du seul Système qui soit par-tout d'accord avec la nature, avec la raison et avec la pratique ; lu à la classe des Beaux-arts de l'Institut le 17 décembre 1808. Paris, chez de Momigny, 1808.

      Chez l'Auteur, en son Magasin de Musique, Paris 1806 - Trois volume in-8, viii-10 à 382 pp. (1) ff. ; 389 à 704 pp. ; 314 pp. de portées musicales gravées. Plein veau raciné, dos lisses ornés de fleurons représentant des vases anciens et d'instruments de musique, infimes frottements aux coins. Un volume in-8, 70 pp. 2 pages de portées musicales gravées. reliure demi-veau, dos lisse décoré, plats cartonnés. Très rare édition originale de l'ouvrage majeur de Jérôme-Joseph de Momigny (1762-1842), compositeur, musicologue et éditeur. En 1806, il publia son Cours complet d'harmonie et de composition d'après une théorie neuve et générale de la musique, ouvrage dans lequel il expose des théories sur le rythme et le phrasé musical en avance sur son époque. Y figure notamment une théorie sur la signification du levé par rapport au frappé, qui ne fut pas acceptée par l?Académie, mais fut reprise plus tard par Hugo Riemann.

        A dictionary of the Persian and Arabic languages.

      Calcutta, S. Greenway, India Gazette Press, 1804-1806. - Two volumes. (v), iv, 570 pp. (ii), 921 pp. (1 blank). With 2 title-pages using decorated and shaded roman and italic capitals and decorated swelled rules. Set in roman, italic and Arabic type (nashk for the Arabic and nastaliq for the Persian). A very good set attractively bound in twentieth century calf. First and only edition of a rare and very extensive dictionary of Persian and Arabic, giving definitions in English: a remarkably early example of printing in these languages in Calcutta and one of the earliest books printed anywhere in one of the best early Arabic types in the nastaliq style, favoured for Persian. Each entry in the dictionary begins with the Arabic word in nashk or Persian word in nastaliq, followed by a transliteration in italic and the definition in English, set in roman type. The Mughal Empire promoted Persian as the language of culture in India in the 16th century and it remained until officially replaced by English in 1832. Many Islamic and Armenian Christian merchants in the international trading centres of India and the East Indies also used Persian as a lingua franca. The present dictionary includes Arabic words not for communication in Arabic but because they were often used as loan words in Persian, so the Persian and Arabic words appear in a single alphabetical series. The preliminaries show alphabets of the nashk and nastaliq types side by side for comparison to help the beginner distinguish the Arabic from the Persian words. The book was intended for practical use by merchants of the British East India Company and other English speakers in India, the East Indies and perhaps also in Iran. Joseph Barretto junior (ca. 1776?-1824) was born in Calcutta to an Indian mother and a wealthy Portuguese merchant father. Joseph Barretto senior (1750-1824?) came to Calcutta from Macau in 1775 and served as Calcutta agent for his family's insurance firm before setting up on his own in 1806. Joseph junior appears to have married his cousin Rozalin, daughter of Luis Barretto de Souza, around 1798. He was granted arms in 1813 and elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in London in 1818, whereupon he presented the Society with the present dictionary and his 1806 Persian and Arabic dictionary in the Persian language (Shums-ool-loghat, or A dictionary of the Persian and Arabic languages, sometimes confused with the present volume 2). Joseph junior was a partner in his father's firm, which traded as Joseph Barretto and sons from at least 1817 and financed many East India Company ventures. In 1820 Lord Viscount Torrington noted that efforts to get Joseph junior a seat in parliament "had only been defeated because of Barretto's skin colour" and Barretto tried unsuccessfully to get one of "the Company's seats" in the House of Commons in 1821. After Joseph junior's death his son Luis Joseph was a partner in the firm, but it collapsed in 1828. We wonder if references to Joseph senior's death in 1824 result from confusion with Joseph junior. Printing in Arabic was much more common than printing in Persian, and Arabic books usually used the nashk style of Arabic script most common in Arabic manuscripts. Most early printed books in Persian therefore usually used the nashk Arabic types, sometimes with additional sorts, even though the nastaliq (or talik) style of Arabic script was generally preferred in Persian manuscripts. The fluid forms of the nastaliq probably made it more difficult to render in type as well. The Propaganda Fide in Rome had published an Alphabetum Persicum [ 1633?], the first known work printed in nastaliq Arabic type, but their printing for missionary work did not satisfy the needs of merchants and others trading with Persian-speakers and for many years no other press had nastailq type. Charles Wilkins, printer to the British East India Company at Calcutta, therefore produced a nastaliq type for Francis Balfour, The forms of Herkern, Calcutta, 1781, and Balfour's preface seems to suggest it was the first

        Eigenh. Schriftstück mit U.

      Dresden, 31. X. 1806.. 1 S. auf gefalt. Doppelblatt. Folio.. "Status Informationis" für die um eine Gnadenpension ansuchende Johanna Friederike Seydelmann, Witwe seines langjährigen Freund und Kollegen Franz Seydelmann (1748-1806). Dieser hatte "als Kirchen- und Cammer-Compositeur und seit 1787 als wirklicher Capellmeister, 36 [Jahre] gedient, und seinen Dienst sowohl in der Kirche als im Theater mit der strengsten Ordnung verrichtet [...] Die hinterlaßene Wittwe ist 65 Jahr alt [...] Daß von ihren Eltern ihr zugefallene, an sich unbeträchtliche Vermögen, hat sie auf Tilgung einiger Schulden ihres Mannes, und vielfältige Unterstützung seiner unvermögenten Anverwanten nach und nach zugesetzt [...] Da des Mannes anhaltenter Fleiß in seinem Dienst ihm keine Zeit gelaßen sich einigen Nebenverdienst zu verschaffen, so ist er auch nicht in Standt gewesen den Aufwand bey Wittwen-Caßen zu machen [...]". - Die S. 2 und 3 des Faltbogens enthalten die am folgenden Tag vorgenommene Stellungnahme des Hofmarschalls Joseph Friedrich Frhr. von Racknitz (1744-1818) als Leiter der Hofkapelle und des Hoftheaters, in der die von Schuster benannten Argumente nochmals ausgeführt werden. - Spuren waagrechter Mittenfaltung; im senkrechten Bug unten eingerissen. Die Handschrift von Racknitz' von einer Hand des späten 19. Jhs. in Bleistift bezeichnet. - Schuster, Sohn eines Dresdner Hofmusikers, hatte gemeinsam mit dem kaum zwei Monate jüngeren Seydelmann ein kurfürstliches Stipendium erhalten, und gemeinsam verbrachten sie die Jahre 1765-68 mit J. G. Naumann auf einer Studienreise durch Italien. Beide feierten dort erste Erfolge, bevor sie nach Dresden zurückkehrten: abwechselnd dirigierten sie die Hofkirche und das Hoftheater, 1787 wurden sie beide zum Kapellmeister ernannt. "Schuster had an easy social manner, was attracted by everything fashionable and was a very productive composer [...] He also participated enthusiastically in Dresden's concert life [...] The Padua string quartet in C (1780), for some time attributed to Mozart as K.Anh.211/Anh.C 02.02, has been proved to be by Schuster" (New Grove XVI, 876). Umgekehrt wird Seydelmann beschrieben als "an introspective man of little energy, who found it difficult to assert himself in the intrigue-ridden court affairs of Dresden. Perhaps his tendency to drink, mentioned in a humorous context by Mozart in a letter to Constanze (16 May 1789), was partly to blame [...] Seydelmann wrote fewer operas than his Dresden colleagues, but their quality, at least in the most successful, met the current exacting standards of the city" (New Grove XVII, 206f.). - Hübsches Dresdner Dokument, das einen betrüblichen Schlußpunkt unter die langjährige Verbindung zweier herausragender Musiker am sächsischen Hof des ausgehenden 18. Jahrhunderts setzt.

        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. 8vo, xii + (5)-302 + (12)pp, complete with the final leaf with advertisements on recto and directions to binder on verso, one large folding table, contemporary half calf over boards, flat spine with gilt lines and title, just a little wear to spine head and slight crack down centre of spine, otherwise a fine, crisp, copy. First edition. Kress B.5028. Goldsmiths 19292. Williams II, 225. This was 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 depositors, 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 required. 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 gazettes.' '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 and 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.
