        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]

        Correspondance littéraire, adressée à Son Altesse Impériale Mgr le Grand-Duc, aujourd'hui Empereur de Russie [= Alexandre Ier], et à M. le comte André Schowalow [= Schouvalof], chambellan de l'Impératrice Catherine II, depuis 1774 jusqu'à 1789 [-1791].

      Paris, Migneret, Dupont, 1801-1807, - 6 tomes en 5 vol. in-8, index général et catalogue de libraire à la fin du T. VI, basane fauve marbrée, dos lisses alternativement fleuronnés et ornés de semis de croisillons dorés, tranches citron mouchetées de rouge (reliure de l'époque). Petits manques de cuir sur certains plats, léger disparate dans les fers du dos du vol. V, mais bon exemplaire.Édition originale des deux parties dont se compose cette correspondance, et qui furent publiées successivement (la seconde à titre posthume). L'ouvrage, l'un des derniers que donna le célèbre auteur du "Cours de littérature", mort en 1803, lui valut une animosité exceptionnelle dans le petit monde des auteurs, en raison de la netteté et de la franchise des jugements exprimés, ainsi que des anecdotes transcrites, et qui embarrrassaient bien des gloires encore en activité. Aussi, jusque dans les années 1830, la plupart des auteurs qui écrivirent sur cette série en donnèrent une image nettement défavorable. Pour la postérité, bien sûr, même exagérées, ces critiques sont précieuses et révèlent bien des à-côtés du Landerneau littéraire de la fin du XVIIIe siècle.

A good copy. First edition. Keynes 4. Ireland p.49. Kress B.5198. Goldsmiths 19371. Mattioli 1596. Not in Einaudi. 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.

        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.

      "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.

        Orme's Collection of British Field Sports illustrated in twenty beautiful coloured engravings.

      London Edward Orme 1 January -25 March 1808 1807 - Landscape folio (45.5 x 55 cm). Hand-coloured aquatint title, list of plates with aquatint vignette, and 20 hand-coloured, deckle-edged aquatint plates principally by W.M. Craig, J. Godby, and H. Merke after Howitt. Plate captions in English and French, corrective overslips as usual on the captions to plates 2 and 9. (Title with repaired tear at lower corner and with small Spitz ownership stamp on verso, his stamp repeated on verso of final plate.) Full blue morocco by the Lakeside Press, Chicago, the covers dark blue, contrasting light blue title label on front cover with gilt cartouche, light blue morocco spine with raised bands titled in gilt, blue buckram slipcase. "Very rare. The first and only edition of the finest and most important sporting book of the last two centuries" (Schwerdt). Tooley calls it 'a magnificent work, the most valuable English colour plate book on sport'. Although there are fox, stag and hare hunting scenes, the majority of plates depict the shooting of different game birds in deeply rural woods and pastureland. The present copy contains the plates in an early state, printed on sheets watermarked 1804, 1805 or 1806 (Abbey records copies dated as late as 1819). The word 'chevau' in plate 2 has an 'x' added in pencil. A handsome copy with plates uncut. Samuel Howitt (1756/57–1822) was an English painter, illustrator and etcher of animals, hunting, horse-racing and landscape scenes. Howitt was closely associated in his art with Thomas Rowlandson, whose sister he married. Howitt's early watercolour style has similarities to Rowlandson's, but Howitt developed a more individual style as his career as a sporting artist progressed. He seems to have had an innate capacity for drawing animals, from commonplace hare and deer to exotic species that he studied in menageries. He was an animated draughtsman, and his drawings of hunts and sporting events have a fluidity and excitement fitting to the subject. (ODNB). Edward Orme (1775-1848) was, after Rudolph Ackermann, the most important publisher of illustrated books during the short golden age of the coloured aquatint. Orme's output totalled some 700 illustrations, but his monument is his British Field Sports. Abbey Scenery 14; Mellon/Podeschi 86; Schwerdt II, p. 53; Tooley 273. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Disertacion sobre dos Zodiacos recien descubiertos en Egipto, leida en junta extraordinaria de la Academia de Religion Catolica el dia 5 de julio de 1802. Traducida de italiano en castellano por Don Luis Testa, presbitero, secretario de la Legacia de Roma.

      Madrid, en la Imprenta Real, 1807. - in-8. (1f.blanc). 3ff. 58pp. 1 planche gravée hors-texte. (1f.blanc). Plein maroquin rouge, dos lisse orné, armoiries royales au centre du plat supérieur, filet doré d'encadrement, tranches dorées (reliure de l'époque, petits trous de vers au dos). Première et unique traduction en espagnol de cette dissertation relative à la découverte de deux zodiaques en Egypte lors de la campagne de Napoléon. Leur datation suscita une vive polémique parmi les astronomes de l'époque (Lalande, Burckhardt, etc.) parce qu'elle semblait remettre en question la chronologie biblique. L'abbé Testa (1746-1825), soutenu par l'archéologue Visconti, devint le chef de file des défenseurs de la Bible et data les zodiaques du IIIe siècle avant J-C. L'ouvrage est illustré d'une planche gravée représentant des chapiteaux des temples de Dendérah et de Henné. Précieux exemplaire aux armes du roi d'Espagne Carlos IV (1788-1808). Palau, 331020.

        Eccentric Excursions

      London: Allen & Co., 1807. "A Study the Inhabitants of the Roundhouse and the Regular Attendants at the Police-Court"A Journey in Caricature through Early Nineteenth Century England…WOODWARD. George Moutard. Eccentric Excursions, or, Literary & Pictorial Sketches of Countenance, Character & Country, in different parts of England & South Wales. Interspersed with Curious Anecdotes, Embellished with upwards of One Hundred Characteristic & Illustrative Prints. London: Allen & Co., 1807 [but ca. 1813]. Later issue (first published in 1796). Quarto (10 3/16 x 8 3/8 in; 259 x 213 mm.). iv, v, 6-217, [1, list of plates] pp. Engraved title-page (included in pagination) Hand colored frontispiece and 100 hand-colored etched plates (on ninety-nine leaves) by Isaac Cruikshank after Woodward, including three folding plates (Plates 1, 2, and 3). The text is watermarked "W. Balston 1813". Bound by Rivière & Son (stamp-signed on verso of front endpaper) ca. 1890. Full maroon morocco, covers with double-gilt borders, spine with five raised bands, decoratively tooled and lettered in gilt in compartments, gilt ruled board-edges, decorative gilt turn-ins, marbled end-papers, top edge gilt, others uncut. Occasional toning or foxing, a few leaves with neatly repaired or strengthened edges. Overall an excellent copy of this journey in caricature through early nineteenth century England. Originally published in 1796 with subsequent issues in 1797, 1798, 1799, 1801, 1807. 1814, 1815, 1816, 1818, Eccentric Excursions is quite rare in all yet, curiously, is rarer still in the later issues.This satire, amongst Moutard's earliest work, enthusiastically depicts all types: high- and low-born, rural and urban, lawyers and peddlers, coaching scenes, misadventures on ice-skates, Oxford dons, gypsies, etc."The first and most celebrated of Woodward's books. The text describes an idiosyncratic ramble around the counties of England and Wales." (Gordon, p. 15).George Moutard Woodward (1760?-1809) was "prolific and popular designer of social caricature much in the style of Banbury, etched chiefly by Thomas Rowlandson and Isaac Cruikshank...[his caricatures] display a wealth of imagination and insight into character...extremely entertaining" (DNB)."Another popular caricaturist of the day was George Moutard Woodward, commonly called 'Mustard George.' Woodward, according to his friend [Henry] Angelo, was the son of a land agent and spent his youth in a country town, where nothing was less known than everything pertaining to the arts. 'A caricaturist in a country town,' said Mustard George, 'like a bull in a china shop, cannot live without noise; so, having made a little noise in my native place, I persuaded my father to let me seek my fortune in town.' Thanks to a small allowance from his father, supplemented by his own earnings, George was able to enjoy life in his own Bohemian fashion, and ultimately took up his quarters at the 'Brown Bear,' Bow Street, where he was able to study the inhabitants of the roundhouse and the regular attendants at the police-court. At the 'Brown Bear' he died suddenly, departing in character with a glass of brandy in his hand, and was long mourned by his tavern associates. In his Eccentric Excursion[s], which appeared in volume form in 1796 (the designs engraved by Isaac Cruikshank), there are several domestic subjects, such as The Polite Congregation, Showing Family Pictures, and The Formal Introduction. Among other popular designs by Woodward are Raffling for a Coffin, The Club of Quidnuncs, Babes in the Wood, A Goldfinch and his Mistress…and a series called Six Ways of Carrying a Stick. The majority are marred by extravagant hideousness, but Angelo was of opinion that 'had this low humourist studied drawing and been temperate in his habits, such was the fecundity of his imagination and perception of character that he might rivalled even Hogarth" (Paston, Social Caricature in the Eighteenth Century, pp. 137-138).Gordon, BC-26; Widener 207; Not in Abbey or Tooley.

Spectacular and renamed composite map, in its very rare first issuing Berlin-Paris, collecting the  New East Prussia arosed after the third partition of Poland in 1795, when Prusia incorporated herself part of Poland and the Great Duchy of Lithuania. The survey for the map began the same year directed by general von Stein, being the general von Gesau the person in charge of the works of triangulation. Geographical works ended in 1800, but the map, scale 1: 33300, was never published. On the basis of this work, and taking advantage of the astronomical observations he had supervised for the survey carried out by Friedrich Bernhardt Engelhardt (1768-1854) in his campaign from 1796 to 1802, Lieutenant Johann Christoph von Textor prepared, a few years later, an 1:152500 scale reduction composite map. The edition was prepared by Daniel F. Sotzmann, being the engraver Carl Maré, but before all the sheets were printed(1) the plates and available imprints were sequestered by the Napoleonic invaders. So the first complete imprint, to which this copy corresponds, was not finished in Berlin, but in Paris in 1807. Only its second edition was totally printed in Berlin in 1808 (reetching at less the title on first sheet)(2). Prussia could not, however, take advantage of the administrative opportunities of this great cartographic work because, at the same time the map was printed in Paris, New East Prussia was ceded by the Tilsit Treaties (July 1807): Plozk department to the Warsaw Duchy and BiaBystok department to the Russian Empire. The 15 map plates were distributed in 13 sheets, since leaves formed by IIa and IIIa, and by Va and IXa, were envisaged as an extension of their associated leaves II, III, V and IX. The set was marketed by Charles Piquet (1771-1827), to whom François de la Grange bought it. The only complete copy (like this) of this first complete issue dated 1807 we have been able to locate is preserved in the Czech National Library. We are not sure about the completion of the Strasbourg National University Library copy. (1) Map prospectus with detailed information about survey and cartographic works was published in Allgemeine Geographische Ephemeriden 13 (1804) Januar: 95-111. The publication of the sheets 2, 4, 8, 10, 12 and 13 was announced in the same journal, 21 (1806) November: 327-329, and that of sheets 5, 6 and 7, in 23 (1807) Mai: 101-103.

        [TRANSPORTATION] Traité sur la police de Londres :

      contenant le détail des crimes et délits qui se commettent dans cette capitale, et indiquant les moyens de les prévenir....Traduit de l'Anglais sur la sixième édition. Paris : Léopold Collin, 1807. Two volumes octavo, contemporary red half calf over red boards (rubbed), spines with gilt numbers, decoration and stamped title labels, pastedowns and free endpapers with three late nineteenth to early twentieth century bookplates, pp 424, 466 (clean and fresh), tables (2 folding). The Scottish lawyer, statistician and public reformer Patrick Colquhoun (1745-1820) was appointed as Magistrate in the East End of London in 1785. In 1796 he published his major work on criminology, A treatise on the police of the Metropolis, which used rigorous statistical analysis of crime and social conditions as the basis for propounding practical solutions to the causes and effects of crime in the capital. Colquhoun's examination of the penal system provided a sufficiently theoretical model for it to create interest in America and France. The set we offer here is the first French edition of this work, based on the sixth (corrected and enlarged) English edition. Colquhoun put forward radical new ideas such as productive convict labour, the appointment of paid magistrates and the creation of a preventive police force. (In 1798, after intellectual collaboration with the utilitarian philosopher Jeremy Bentham, Colquhoun succeeded in making this last proposal a reality when he founded the Thames River Police, the first preventive police force in Britain, funded by the West India Planters Committees and the West India Merchants to combat crime in the Pool of London). In his discussion of criminal punishment, Colquhoun criticises both the use of prison hulks and transportation to overseas penal colonies. His analysis of the system of transportation to New South Wales concludes that it is much too expensive for the public purse, and suggests improvements which might minimise costs involved. He also argues strongly in favour of utilising the skills or basic manpower of convicts in productive labour, a concept which he not only regards as beneficial to the community but also potentially effective in reducing the incidence of recidivistic behaviour. Scarce. One example of this edition recorded in Australian collections (SLNSW).
