        THE PICTURE OF NEW-YORK; OR THE TRAVELLER'S GUIDE THROUGH THE COMMERCIAL METROPOLIS OF THE UNITED STATES

      New York: I. Riley, 1807. FIRST EDITION. This is the first traveller's guide to New York City, complete with the rarely seen map of Lower Manhattan by cartographer William Bridges showing the Lower East Side with the proposed landfill expansion. Written by "A Gentleman Residing in the City," the book offers a brief description of the topography of the area and the history of the settlement, followed by demographic information, lists of banks, insurance companies, commercial and charitable institutions, markets, literary establishments, and public amusements, as well as a guide to city regulations, the courts, and matters concerning public health. The map is a pirated version of the 1803 Mangin-Goerck plan, which proposed a landfill to extend the coastline of the Lower East Side. Bridges re-engraved the map with little regard for accuracy: due to lack of care in designating the water line, some of the streets pictured are still part of the East River. Restored copies of this map can sell for more than $5,000, so the price here is especially advantageous.. 160 x 100 mm. (6 1/4 x 4"). viii, 223 pp. FIRST EDITION. Period-style half calf over older (original?) marbled paper boards and leather spine, flat spine with rectangular cut-out revealing the original (worn) gilt titling on the spine beneath, renewed endpapers. WITH THE SCARCE FOLDING MAP engraved by Peter Maverick attached to rear board. Choen et al., "Manhattan in Maps 1527-2014," p. 82. Paper boards a bit chafed, title page a little soiled, intermittent minor to moderate foxing, map a bit browned, with splits along most of the folds (map edges and three of the folds neatly reinforced with archival tape on verso), but the copy otherwise very good, with the map complete, the text clean and fresh, and the nicely restored binding with few signs of wear.

        A short inquiry into the policy, humanity and past effects of the poor laws; and into the principles upon which any measures for their improvement should be conducted; in which are included a few considerations on the questions of political oeconomy, most intimately connected with the subject; particularly on the supply of food in England.

      London: printed for J. Hatchard; Mess. F.C. and J. Rivington; and J. Asperne. 1807. 8vo., xlii + (2) + 382pp., including the half-title and errata leaf, old tear in one text leaf (but no loss of surface), well bound fairly recently in cloth-backed marbled boards, black spine label gilt lettered, entirely uncut. A very good copy indeed. First edition. John Weyland (1774-1854), known to biographical history simply as a 'writer on the poor laws', was actually a J.P. for four southern counties, a member of the Board of Agriculture and a Fellow of the Royal Society. The present so-called 'short inquiry>' is in fact a substantial treatise on the poor laws largely from a rural perspective (Weyland suggests that it complements Colquhoun's parallel Treatise on Indigence> which largely examined the state of the urban poor). Williams (loc. cit.) succinctly observes that Weyland's is a 'lengthy argument in defence of the poor laws, as an encouragement to population'. As M.C. Curthoys puts it in ODNB, 'Weyland is now remembered as a critic of Malthusian population theory. He was concerned to uphold the existing social order in the countryside, and was an outspoken defender of the existing system of poor relief.'

        Observations upon the windward coast of Africa, the religion, character, customs, &c. of the natives; with a system upon which they may be civilized, and a knowledge attained of the interior of this extraordinary quarter of the globe; and upon the natural and commercial resources of the country: made in the years 1805 and 1806. With an appendix, containing a letter to Lord Howick, on the most simple and effectual means of abolishing the Slave Trade.

Scarce. "An early eyewitness description of the territories of the western coast of Africa promoting greater European activity in the area." (Bianchi). Illustrated with fine hand-coloured plates. "Observations is an unusually finely illustrated account of travels to West Africa in the early years of the 19th century. Joseph Corry, in addition to advancing Britain's commercial prospects, was interested in ending the practice of slavery. To this end, the text includes the author's letter to Lord Howick on abolishing the slave trade. The author hoped that "if in the most remote degree, I excite the interference of my countrymen in behalf of the African, extend our commerce, and enlarge the circle of civilized and Christian society, I shall think that I have neither travelled, nor written in vain." In February 1807 William Wilberforce's Abolition Bill was passed by the House of Commons, making participation in the slave trade illegal for British subjects."

        [drop-title] John Bon and mast person.

      [London]: [colophon: J. Smeeton, Printer], n.d. [1807 or 1808]. Small 4to (27 cm; 10.5"). [5] ff. One of either 12 or 25 copies printed on vellum (as per Alston in the former case, as per Oxford cataloguer and a contemporary note on title-page in the latter). John Bon was originally printed by Daye and Seres in London in 1548 (STC 3258.5) and is here reproduced in letterpress facsimile from a copy formerly owned by Richard Forster    => Attributed to Luke Shepherd by Halkett and Laing, this is a satirical poem, a dialogue in verse, on the Eucharist, and could even be seen as a short play. It is printed in gothic (black letter) type with => a large woodcut of a procession of the Eucharist on the title-page.    None of the copies reported to WorldCat, COPAC, or NUC are described as printed on vellum. The copy that Alston found at the British Library is not findable via the BL OPAC.    Provenance: Early 19th-century manuscript ownership on front fly-leaf: "Thomas Briggs Esq., Edgeware Road." Most recently in the library of American collector Albert A. Howard, small booklabel ("AHA") at rear.         Alston, Books Printed on Vellum in the Collections of the British Library, p. 35; Halkett & Laing (2nd ed.), III, p. 192; Halkett & Laing (3rd ed.), J21 (var.) l NSTC, I, S1667. Original dun colored boards with beige linen shelfback; rebacked, and binding discolored. "25 copies Printed on chosen Parchment" written in ink in an early 19th-century hand in lower margin of the title-page. Foxing, heaviest on last three leaves; last page (a publisher's note and colophon) lightly inked and so a little faint. => A nice find for the collector of printing on vellum, letterpress facsimiles, or reprints of rare 16th-century English tracts.

        A short inquiry into the policy, humanity and past effects of the poor laws; and into the principles upon which any measures for their improvement should be conducted; in which are included a few considerations on the questions of political oeconomy, most intimately connected with the subject; particularly on the supply of food in England.

      London: printed for J. Hatchard; Mess. F.C. and J. Rivington; and J. Asperne 1807 - 8vo., xlii + (2) + 382pp., including the half-title and errata leaf, old tear in one text leaf (but no loss of surface), well bound fairly recently in cloth-backed marbled boards, black spine label gilt lettered, entirely uncut. A very good copy indeed. First edition. John Weyland (1774-1854), known to biographical history simply as a 'writer on the poor laws', was actually a J.P. for four southern counties, a member of the Board of Agriculture and a Fellow of the Royal Society. The present so-called 'short inquiry>' is in fact a substantial treatise on the poor laws largely from a rural perspective (Weyland suggests that it complements Colquhoun's parallel Treatise on Indigence> which largely examined the state of the urban poor). Williams (loc. cit.) succinctly observes that Weyland's is a 'lengthy argument in defence of the poor laws, as an encouragement to population'. As M.C. Curthoys puts it in ODNB, 'Weyland is now remembered as a critic of Malthusian population theory. He was concerned to uphold the existing social order in the countryside, and was an outspoken defender of the existing system of poor relief.' [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

This was the young Hazlitt's attack on Malthus's Essay on the principle of population>. 'Malthus's theory was based on self-interest, so in attacking it Hazlitt was applying the principles of his own Essay* on disinterestedness to the political sphere.' [Jonathan Bate in ODNB]. 'Hazlitt's spirited Reply to Malthus> consists of five Letters, the last of which is much the longest. The first three shorter Letters had been published on March 14 and May 16, 1807, in Cobbett's Political Register>, and the rest of the material was added in the book, which was announced for publication in the Edinburgh Review> for October 1807. The book was probably a failure at the time, though it was used in later publications both by Godwin and de Quincey, much to Hazlitt's annoyance (Life>, pp.321, 364). Hazlitt himself reprinted some extracts from it in his Political Essays>, published in 1819, and there remarked in a footnote (p.424): 'The above article is taken from a Reply to Mr Malthus, one of my very early Essays, the style of which is, I confess, a little exuberant, but of the arguments I see no reason to be ashamed'. The volume is very uncommon at the present time.' [Geoffrey Keynes, Bibliography>, 2nd ed. 1981, p.7]. * i.e. An essay on the principles of human action>, 1805. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Cranologie, ou découvertes nouvelles du Docteur F.J. Gall, concernant le cerveau, le crâne, et les organes. Ouvrage traduit de l'allemand. + Supplément a la cranologie.

      Paris, A la Libr. Stéréotype, chez H.Nicolle, 1807, XVI, 206, (2) pp. pp.(207)-342 pp., Frontispizportrait, 1 gefalt. Taf., feiner grüner Ganzledereinband d.Zt. First Edition!"Anonymous, Craniologie (1807). This seems to be one of the first detailed accounts of Gall's doctrine and is translated from the German. An earlier one, Anonymous, Exposition (1803), used the term "la doctrine physionomique de Gail," as in Anonymous, Some Account (1807). The authors could not be traced.""Although Gall's name is universally associated with "phrenology," he did not, in fact, invent the term or ever use it, or the populär phrase, "phrenology, or the doctrine of the mind." He preferred to call his doctrine "functions of the brain" or "brain physiology." However, the first term he used was Schädellehre ("craniology"), which he eventually abandoned, because it suggested that his System was concerned primarily with the cranium and only secondarily with functions of the brain that it contained, whereas the reverse was the case. "Craniology" and "craniologie," however, persisted well into the nineteenth Century. Gall's objection to "doctrine of the mind" or "mental Science," and their Greek equivalent, "phrenology," was because of his desire not to equate the functions of the brain solely with mind. This seems to have been a small objection, and without doubt "phrenology" was the best available, for it closely expressed his basic precept. Why then did he reject it? The simple answer seems to be that "phrenology" was made populär by Spurzheim and applied to his modification of the original scheme, introduced contrary to Gall's wishes. It, therefore, did not refer to Gall's "functions of the brain," and to have accepted the term would have signified his approval of the altered System, and this he was not willing to do.""Several other terms were proposed, deriving from the system's two linked principles. First was the existence of cortical "organs" representing moral and mental faculties and "organology," therefore, scemed appropriate Gail gave it sanction by using it (organologie) in the title of one of his books. The second principle was the effect the surface "organs" had on the overlying cranium, and the technique of estimating their size was, therefore, called "organoscopy," or "cranioscopy." "Encephalonomy" or "cephalonomy" meaning "brain functions" were nearest of all to Gall's basic assumption, but they did not receive wide use. Another early, and for a time, populär phrase was "physiognomical System." It is usually stated that "phrenology" was introduced in 1815 by (T.I.M. Forster)." Edwin Clarke,L. S.

        [drop-title] John Bon and mast person.

      [London]: [colophon: J. Smeeton, Printer], n.d. [1807 or 1808]. Small 4to (27 cm; 10.5"). [5] ff. One of either 12 or 25 copies printed on vellum (as per Alston in the former case, as per Oxford cataloguer and a contemporary note on title-page in the latter). John Bon was originally printed by Daye and Seres in London in 1548 (STC 3258.5) and is here reproduced in letterpress facsimile from a copy formerly owned by Richard Forster    => Attributed to Luke Shepherd by Halkett and Laing, this is a satirical poem, a dialogue in verse, on the Eucharist, and could even be seen as a short play. It is printed in gothic (black letter) type with => a large woodcut of a procession of the Eucharist on the title-page.    None of the copies reported to WorldCat, COPAC, or NUC are described as printed on vellum. The copy that Alston found at the British Library is not findable via the BL OPAC.    Provenance: Early 19th-century manuscript ownership on front fly-leaf: "Thomas Briggs Esq., Edgeware Road." Most recently in the library of American collector Albert A. Howard (sans indicia).         Alston, Books Printed on Vellum in the Collections of the British Library, p. 35; Halkett & Laing (2nd ed.), III, p. 192; Halkett & Laing (3rd ed.), J21 (var.) l NSTC, I, S1667. Original dun colored boards with beige linen shelfback; rebacked, and binding discolored. "25 copies Printed on chosen Parchment" written in ink in an early 19th-century hand in lower margin of the title-page. Foxing, heaviest on last three leaves; last page (a publisher's note and colophon) lightly inked and so a little faint. => A nice find for the collector of printing on vellum, letterpress facsimiles, or reprints of rare 16th-century English tracts.

        Notebook containing an unusual collection of manuscript notes relating to signalling at sea.

      c.1807-1920. Nineteenth-century landscape octavo notebook (97 × 159 mm), sheep, rope-twist panel in blind to the boards, brass clasp intact. 18 pages with hand-coloured hand-drawn flags, a further 7 uncoloured. Somewhat rubbed externally, leather on the back joint splitting towards the head structurally sound, contents lightly browned, slightly damping to the last few leaves, else very good. Unfortunately without any identifying marks, this intriguing volume contains a combination of naval officer's and scholar's notes on naval signalling, ranging between the early nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The volume opens with five pages of "Explanatory Instructions" which include six pages of the numerary flags, hand-coloured, with their significations, these placing the manuscript in the early years of the nineteenth century. There follow seventy pages offering signals for over 400 instructions, and then a further twenty carrying a "Navy List" of more than 300 Royal Naval ships identified by number, also giving the number of guns. A brief survey of the names included here suggests a date of compilation of around 1807, most revealing perhaps being the inclusion among the late additions of HMS Delight, with a subsequent pencilled note "lost", which must refer to the 6-gun brig-sloop launched in 1806, and captured by the French just two years later, when she became stranded off Calabria. There are then thirty pages dedicated to single word telegraphic codes, which seems to run out of steam at "R", with a few additional significations pencilled in. The next group of notes was added at a later period being described as "Marryatt's [sic.] Signals in the Navy and Merchant Service 1868", and including fourteen pages of coloured flags, covering "Boat Signals", "Distinguishing Pennants for Boats", together with three pages of signals for compass bearings rendered in monochrome; these followed by six pages of coloured flags with alphabetical codes for British Merchant Vessels, British Ships of War, French ships of War, Italian Men-of-War, American Commercial Code, and Russian Ships of War. A single page note on Nelson's Trafalgar signal from around 1900, is followed by two rather scruffy pages of "Semaphore Signals (used by Boy Scouts), 1911", and eleven on "USA Weather Signals", apparently derived from Hammond's Atlas of the World, 1914, and including a number of roughly drawn flags, and with some notes dated through to 1920. The last entry in the volume is a four page transcription of Sir Sidney Smith's "Memorandum" of the loss of Ajax in the Dardanelles Operation of 1807, which may suggest that the original owner accompanied the squadron in the Straits. An attractive and intriguing gallimaufry of signal material.

        MANUSCRIPT ESTATE PLAN SHOWING WAYLAND WOOD of "BABES IN THE WOOD" fame.

      "A Map of the Estates in Watton Norfolk Belonging to C.Dorr Gent 1807 Surveyed by T.Starke and W.Fendick" Manuscript map on vellum, once folded. Approx 87 cm x 78 cm . The map details field names in ink, with later measurements in pencil. Ponds, Wayland Wood, buildings,roads, field boundaries and hedges and a small part of the town of Watton are shown. The top left corner has a decorative scroll containing the names of the surveyors, top right an oval cartouche giving the title [above]. There is a simple compass to bottom left, and a scale in a scroll next to it. A " Scale of Chains" to the middle right is decorated with surveying instruments, with a similar illustration below it. Some rubbing, dust and soiling. Altogether a charming and well produced estate plan- but with additional interest below. The legend of Wayland Wood. Folklore has it that the events told in the "Babes in the Wood" story originally happened in Wayland Wood new Watton . It is said that the children's wicked uncle in the tale lived at the nearby Griston Hall. The village signs at Griston and nearby Watton depict the story. In the folklore version, the uncle resents the task of having to bring up the orphan children of his late brother, and pays two men to take them into the woods and kill them. Finding themselves unable to go through with the act, the hired assassins abandon the children in the wood where, unable to fend for themselves, they eventually die. The ghosts of the children are said to haunt Wayland Wood. First published as an anonymous broadside ballad, printed by Thomas Millington in Norwich in 1595 with the title "The Norfolk gent his will and Testament and howe he Commytted the keepinge of his Children to his own brother whoe delte most wickedly with them and howe God plagued him for it". The tale has been reworked in many forms; it frequently appears attributed as a Mother Goose rhyme. The anonymous ballad was illustrated by Randolph Caldecott in a book published in 1879.
