        First report of the Directors of the School of Arts of Edinburgh, for the education of mechanics in such branches of physical science as are of practical application in their several trades.

      Edinburgh: printed by George Ramsay and Co. May 1822 - 8vo., (2) + 50pp., early 19th century half calf over marbled boards, neatly rebacked and labelled, with the armorial bookplate of Ferguson of Raith on front pastedown.> A fine copy. First edition of the first report: rare. Goldsmiths 23497. A foundation document in the origins of Heriot-Watt University which sprang organically, as it were, from this, the world's first Mechanics Institute. The first Directors of the Edinburgh School of Arts included the inspirational Leonard Horner, together with such heavyweights as David Brewster, James Jardine, James Pillans, William Playfair, and James Skene. Horner was the secretary and it is likely that it was he who wrote the present report. The mission statement incorporated in this first report is worth quoting: 'The School of Arts of Edinburgh took its origin from an accidental conversation in the shop of Mr. Bryson, watchmaker, in March 1821. To a question, whether young men brought up in the trade of watch making received any mathematical education, Mr. Bryson replied, that it is seldom, if ever, the case; that they daily experience the effects of the want of this instruction, but the expence and the usual hours of masters who teach mathematics, put it out of the power of working tradesmen to obtain it. It was suggested, that it might be very possible to devise some plan by which such branches of science as would be useful to mechanics in the exercise of their trade, might be taught at convenient hours, and at an expence which would be within their reach; for an institution of this description had long existed at Glasgow, and had been attended with very beneficial effects'. And the Prospectus accordingly declared that 'This Association [i.e. 'School of Arts, for the better Education of the Mechanics of Edinburgh'] has been formed for the purpose of enabling industrious tradesmen to become acquainted with such of the principles of mechanics, chemistry, and other branches of science, as are of practical application in their several trades, that they may possess a more thorough knowledge of their business, acquire a greater degree of skill in the practice of it, and be led to improvement with a greater security of support .'. The Report> provides a full descriptive account of the staff and students, the syllabuses of the various courses, and, of course, a list of benefactors. Among these was our Robert Ferguson of Raith who is recorded as having donated one guinea. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        [MANUSCRIPT] A List of 18 Male Convicts (Boys) discharged from the Bellerophon Hulk at Sheerness for New South Wales by the Ship Lady East this 21st October 1824.

      [Drop title]. Folio, [4] pp, manuscript in ink on laid paper watermarked Charles Wise 1822 with Britannia surmounted by crown; signed at the foot of the third page by the Bellerophon's Commander, Samuel Owen; the list of prisoner profiles, set out in tabular form, contains Commander Owen's remarks on the conduct and demeanour of each of the boys, whose ages range from 16 to 18; the fourth page is endorsed 'Bellerophon'; contrary to the report's title, these boys were transported on the Lady East not to New South Wales but to Van Diemen's Land, arriving at Hobart Town on 9 April 1825; original folds, mild foxing, otherwise clean and legible. HMS Bellerophon, a famous ship which had played a conspicuous part in both the Battle of the Nile and the Battle of the Trafalgar, was used as a prison hulk for boys between 1823 and 1825. It was moored off Sheerness, a town located at the mouth of the River Medway in Kent. The Bellerophon accomodated around 60 boys between the ages of 9 and 18. As her layout meant there was no space for workshops, it was decided at the end of 1825 to transfer the boys to the Euryalus, a hulk which had been specially fitted for such a purpose. For each of the 18 boys listed in this report, Commander Samuel Owen supplies name, age, offence, place of conviction, occupation, remarks about conduct while under his supervision, and a gaoler's report on previous behaviour. It is at the same time a fascinating and depressing document, a starkly human eyewitness record of life on a prison hulk that is also an indictment of the British penal and class systems. Reading it, we keenly feel the plight of these young men helplessly caught in the cycle of poverty and crime: John Bird (18); Thomas Gibson (17); Charles Goulding (18); Robert Bainbridge (17); Charles Lewis (16); Goodman Solomon (17); William Tobin (17); William Martin (17); William Bumbie (16); Ephraim Digby (18); Archibald Bensurilla (17); John Oram (17); John Foster (16); Edward Wise (17); Robert Grout (16); James Walker (16); Francis Hemming (17), and Edward Burton (16). The following prisoner profiles, including extracts from Commander Owen's remarks, are illustrative of the revealing and detailed content in this document: Charles Goulding, a cooper and shoemaker, was sentenced to 14 years for stealing a handkerchief; "Double ironed for very improper conduct, and flogged for breaking his irons". Charles Lewis, a tailor, was sentenced to 7 years for stealing; "This lad has been very attentive to his Trade in this Ship. But in other respects he is an exceeding badly disposed lad. He has been in confinement 7 times before". Goodman Solomon, a tailor, was sentenced to 7 years for stealing a brass crimping machine; "Gaoler's report: In custody before, a bad lad. This lad is a Jew. His general conduct in this Ship has been good, and has been attentive to his Trade". William Tobin, a shoemaker, was sentenced to 7 years for stealing sundry articles of apparel; "The general behaviour of this lad has been very indifferent in this Ship. He is idle & slothful, and has made no progress at his Trade". John Foster, a shoemaker, was sentenced to 7 years for stealing 150 yards of jean; "General behaviour at this Ship very bad. Has been flogged twice, once for prophane Swearing, and once for stealing blankets".

        Autograph letter signed.

      Paris, 30. X. 1822. - 8vo. 2 pp. Bifolium with integral address panel. Anton Reicha starts his letter to Joseph-Pierre Roger in Montpellier by explaining that he has had the idea of answering his amicable letter for at least a fortnight but that he had wanted to wait for his gift to assure him of its reception and that it has finally arrived in perfect condition. Reicha continues by telling Roger how many questions his little daughter Antoinette asked about the gift and about Roger and how funny these questions sounded as Antoinette cannot yet pronounce the letters S or C. Reicha tells Roger that his letter has given great joy to all of his family as it finally ended the uncertainty of not havig had any news from his side for such a long time. All the information that Reicha could get in Paris was that Roger had gone on a big journey. Reicha and his family hope and wish for Roger's family to be in perfect health and to enjoy "happiness without clouds". Reicha's family is fine and happy about Roger's gift. Madame Reicha particularly thanks him for the beautiful lovesong she learnt to sing the very day. She is all glorious about Roger's dedication. "Je suis à la veille de donner à l'Academie Royale de Musique Sapho, opéra en 3 actes, que nous répétons depuis 4 mois" ("I am on the eve of giving Sapho, opera in 3 acts, that we have been rehearsing for 4 months, at the Royal Academy of Music"). Reicha regrets very much that Roger will not be able to carry out his plan of taking a short trip to Paris that autumn where he would be received like a brother by his dear and sincere friend Reicha. Reicha ends his letter by telling Roger that his wife sends a thousand compliments and greetings to Madame Roger and that she embraces their children.

        Early 19th-Century Engineer's or Mechanic's Manuscript Notebook

      1822 - Nearly square octavo. Blank book with stitched illustrated wrappers printed with "Fredrich II nach der Schlacht bei Kollin" ["Fredrich II after the Battle of Kollin"] printed on the front wrap and "Potsdam" on the rear. 18 unnumbered leaves, both sides of each page heavily used for both written and drawn descriptions of mechanical devices and inventions. Staining, particularly at the front and rear pages, and some erosion along the top edge that removes a modest amount of text, but nothing substantial, good only but pleasing and delightful.A wonderful notebook used by an engineer or mechanic, possibly by an advanced student. Undated but likely circa 1822, many of the devices described were developed about that time. Descriptions of approximately 23 devices and a couple of methods of measurement, each with one or more nicely accomplished and detailed illustrative drawings. The text is mostly written in brown ink, the drawings in pen and ink, some with wash or color added. The inside cover reveals the floor plan of a house, the first page shows three portraits, (one labeled "A Great Mechanic"); other illustrated devices are Tantalus's Cup, a Diving Bell, "Vessels used in making the Breakwater in Plymouth Sound [1819]," a Mowing Machine, Agate Milling machinery, a Log Land Life Safety Beacon erected on the shore in 1820, a Pedomotive Carriage (essentially a three wheeled bicycle), an automated cross-cut saw, a foot-operated paddle boat, a couple of clocks, Hadley's Quadrant, and two different nautical lifesaving devices: Lt. Bell's mortar that shoots a life line, and a full-page colored illustration that shows a similar method using oaken barrels developed by Mr. Crane of Norwich, as well as several other devices. The final drawing is one of the most intriguing: "Velocipede to be fixed to the feet like skates" but which looks similar to a modern skateboard. A very pleasing notebook filled with interesting drawings. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        SOUTH AFRICA / AUSTRALIANA: "TRACK OF H.M.S. TAMER ROUND THE CAPE OF GOOD HOPE" [MANUSCRIPT TITLE, PASTED OVER ORIGINAL PRINTED TITLE: TRACK OF THE SHIP HANNAH JOHN LAMB R. N. COMMANDER ROUND THE CAPE OF GOOD HOPE IN JUNE & JULY 1822.]

      Copper engraving, with contemporary pastedown overlaid manuscript title in pen and manuscript additions in pencil to the chart (Good, fine engraving impression, but with light stains throughout, traces of old purple mounting paper on verso where chart was seemingly once pasted into an album), 20.5 x 41.5 cm (8 x 16.5 inches). - [Printed chart: n.p., n.d., but likely London, 1823; Manuscript additions, 1824]. A unique example of a very rare chart of South Africa, with a curious Australian connection! Commander John Lamb’s chart showing the 1822 route of his ship ‘Hannah’, fighting the Agulhas Current rounding the Cape of Good Hope; but this example with a manuscript pastedown title regarding the route of the ‘H.M.S. Tamar’, plus manuscript traces of its route, being a Royal Navy vessel on its way, in 1824, with secret orders to found the first European settlement in what is now Northern Australia, on Melville Island. - This is a unique example of an extremely rare privately printed sea chart of South Africa, featuring manuscript alterations that give it an extraordinary Australian connection. The underlying (printed) chart depicts most of the southern coasts of South Africa in skeleton outline, labeling only the major headlands, from the Cape of Good Hope westward to the ‘Last Point of Natal’, while a line in the interior represents the beginning of the highlands. The course of the Agulhas Current, a powerful warm stream that runs southwestwards down the Indian Ocean coast of South Africa, is expressed through stipple engraving, a highly unusual technique for a sea chart. While covered by a pastedown manuscript title, the underlying printed title of the chart reads ‘Track of the Ship Hannah John Lamb R. N. Commander Round the Cape of Good Hope in June & July 1822’, and in this vain, the Hannah’s arduous course sailing against the Agulhas Current is shown, tacking erratically back and forth, but overall forward, with numbers marking its daily progress. This underlying chart was privately printed, likely in London, in 1823, for Captain John Lamb (1790 - 1862), a former Royal Naval officer who retired on half-pay, in 1814, in order to pursue a career in the merchant marine. For some years, Lamb worked for the firm of Buckles, Bagster & Buchanan as the master of several ships, one of which was the Hannah, ferrying convicts and cargo between England and Australia. Lamb eventually settled in Sydney, founding his own firm, and becoming immensely wealthy through the shipping and wool trades. SEE OUR WEB PAGE FOR LONGER DESCRIPTION.

      London: printed for G. and W.B. Whittaker 1822 - 8vo., (2) + xv + (1) + 238pp., complete with half-title, errata slip (tipped in before B1, with 16 errata) and preliminary advertisement leaf dated July 1822, well bound recently in old-style blue-grey boards with a printed spine label, entirely uncut. A very good copy. First edition. Muirhead (The English at School>) 66. Goldsmiths 23620. Williams II p.468. Stewart & McCann (Educational Innovators, 1750-1880>), I, chap.6. Adamson pp.51-53. Simon (Studies in the History of Education, 1780-1870>) pp.82-84. First edition of an influential and perhaps epoch-making book. Hazelwood School in Birmingham, founded by Thomas Wright Hill, and run by his son Rowland Hill, is an 'interesting example of the best kind of private and progressive or experimental secondary school' (Muirhead). The school catered for boys of all aptitudes by having a basic curriculum with a wide choice of 'voluntary labours' which included practical subjects such as mapping, music, and modelling. Tasks were allotted on the project or assignment system and were not judged until completed. The general object of the school was simple: it was to produce men of business, not narrowly defined, but producing men with the capacity for practical administration in any walk of life. The school's characteristic features included: complete self-government by the boys, a mark system of reward and punishment of great complexity, a minutely ordered timetable, and attention to useful rather than classical knowledge in the curriculum. 'The most striking point about Hazelwood, however, was its resemblance to the Chrestomathic proposals of Jeremy Bentham. The academical aspect of Hazelwood School was in some degree more conventional than the organisational side. Nevertheless, there was a seriously thought-out procedure concerning curriculum and method that foreshadowed a great deal of what was considered progressive much later in the century. In particular, in language teaching and in the teaching of science the school was innovatory. The celebrated system reinforced the ethic of the school and stimulated the academic achievement of the pupils. The Hills themselves had little doubt of their success and they concluded Public Education> with the assertion that they had created Edgeworth's Utopian idea of a school, in which the pupils improve in the social virtues, without learning party spirit; and though they love their companions, they do not, therefore, combine together to treat their instructors as pedagogues and tyrants. If Bentham's influence was to be found at Hazelwood, so too were traces of the spirit of Rousseau and Pestalozzi, but mediated through the mind and skill of the Hill family.'

        Tracts on political economy. Viz. 1. Britain independent of commerce; 2. Agriculture the source of wealth; 3. The objections against the corn bill refuted; 4. Speech on the East India trade. With prefatory remarks on the causes and cure of our present distresses, as originating from neglect of principles laid down in these works

      London: printed for Longman Hurst Rees Orme and Brown 1822 - 8vo, xliv + 265pp, complete with the half-title and with individual title-page for each part, original boards sometime rebacked, label on spine defective, some wear to extremities, entirely uncut. A very good copy. First collected edition. The first collected edition of four previously separately issued tracts with a new preface by the main proponent of English physiocratic doctrine, William Spence. William Spence (1783-1860) was a strong supporter of the old corn laws, and subsequently an opponent of James Mill. He upheld the view that the prosperity derived from agriculture was inherently superior to that derived from commerce or trade. The first tract largely dealt with this topic. The Tracts> was highly popular, went through several editions, and drew a number of responses from enraged fellow economists, not least from James Mill himself. J.F.M. Clark, Spence's biographer in ODNB, puts Spence's published work in context. 'A year after taking up residence in the Drypool district of Hull in 1806, Spence produced his Radical cause of the Present Distresses of the West India Planters pointed out> (1807) and his Britain Independent of Commerce> (1807). An avowed follower of the physiocrats of 'French economists', he proclaimed that agriculture was the most important source of a nation's wealth. Extremely contentious, Britain Independent of Commerce> passed through six editions and netted Spence a profit of £230 by late 1808. As one of about three dozen books and pamphlets spawned in reaction to Spence's opinions, James Mill's Commerce Defended> (1808) laid the intellectual underpinnings of classical political economy. Moreover, Mill identified Spence's purportedly wartime, nationalistic cant as a critique of capitalism and an apologia for the landed interests. Spence responded with his Agriculture the Source of the Wealth of Britain> (1808)'. Spence's Objections against the Corn Bill refuted> came out in 1815. The present uniting in one volume of Spence's controversial Tracts> is significantly enhanced by his extensive new preface (pp. vii - xliv) in which he takes on the great names of political economy without fear or favour - Adam smith, T.R. Malthus, Robert Chalmers, Robert Owen, and James Mill - and shrewdly comments on the Bullion Committee, the Bank of England and other institutions. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Contemporary straight-grain morocco gilt, boards framed in gilt and in blind with leaf-and-flower rolls, rebacked with part of original spine and red morocco lettering piece laid down, marbled end papers. A Very Good or better copy, generally clean and bright with first and final leaves (including title page) foxed, usual offsetting from plates, very occasional finger-soiling. Abbey, Life, 268. Tooley 413. Grolier Rowlandson 48. Martin Hardie, 174-75. "The last of the genuine or 'authorized' Syntax books" (Abbey), first issued in eight monthly parts. As early as 1809, the publisher Ackermann had hired Combe to write the letterpress to accompany many of Rowlandson's most successful illustrations, including those for the final volume of the "Microcosm of London" and perhaps especially for the illustrations that resulted in the series of comic poetry for which Combe is still most famous, and which earned him his best-known nickname, Doctor Syntax: The Tour of Doctor Syntax, in Search of the Picturesque and its two sequels (1812, 1820, 1821), The English Dance of Death (1815, 1816), The Dance of Life (1817), and finally The History of Johnny Quae Genus, the Little Foundling of the Late Doctor Syntax (1822). "Combining light-hearted satire of William Gilpin's theory of the picturesque in art with a central character modelled on Cervantes' Don Quixote and Henry Fielding's Parson Adams, Combe created a lovable eccentric whose misadventures on the road structure the Tour. For over a century the many editions and numerous imitations of the Tour attested to the popularity of Combe's humorous hero."

Spine with five raised bands decoratively tooled and lettered in gilt in compartments,marbled end-papers, top edge gilt. With the woodcut bookplate of Eleanor Castle Stewart on recto of front blank. Printed in various sizes, and not uncommon in a regular edition, this is the extremely rare imperial quarto edition with proofs on India paper, the most expensive version at the time and only published in a very limited print run. The plates are engraved by W. B. Cooke and artists include Peter De Wint, Samuel Owen, John Hughes, William Havell, and many others. The plates show the early nineteenth century scenery along the River Thames, which is always in view, depicting villages, towns (including Oxford and London), bridges, estates, monuments, and several pastoral scenes including cattle, people fishing, rowing, ship-building, etc., all accurately engraved and colored by hand. Each plate has an explanatory caption, one has an additional poem, and a few depict historical events; e.g. "Opening of Waterloo Bridge on the 18th of June 1817", "Launch of the Nelson at Woolrich, July 4th 1814", and "Fair on the Thames Feb. 1814" (when the river was frozen over). "A new edition of the work is in course of publication to be completed in Six Parts, each Part containing thirteen Engravings; the letter-press description will appear at the Conclusion as an Octavo volume. It is intended to re-engrave several of the plates, to omit some altogether and to substitute new ones of a more interesting description. To be printed in Royal Quarto; also in Imperial Quarto, with Proof impressions, and a small number to be taken off on India paper, first proofs... The 'de-luxe' edition, with illustrations on India paper, was clearly intended to supplant the older standard work on Thames scenery, Boydell's History of the Thames" (No 75), whose aquatinted plates were by now very worn. As in Boydell the illustrations in the quarto edition are split up into two volumes, the first extending from Thames head to Richmond, and the second from Richmond to Southend. Also as in Boydell the text is subordinated to the engravings which are mostly the work of a single engraver." (Adams, pp. 337-340).

        Manuscript Letter of Virginia Slave Owner Barred from Taking Slaves to Ohio.

      Culpepper County Virginia: , 12 April 1822. Folded letter sheet, 1pp., signed. Some creasing and edgewear, normal aging and toning; otherwise very good. William Ramlin Withers (c1756-1834) was a Revolutionary War soldier that enlisted as a sergeant, but would be promoted to Lieutenant. In 1782 he returned to Virginia with a leg injury that seems to have left him lame for the rest of his life. It is unclear how he was injured. The letter is to a Mr. Sawyer of Frankford, Kentucky. The address can be seen faintly on the overleaf. Withers who was in his sixties when he wrote this letter was trying to sell some land he was given in Ohio. However, because he was "old a very infirm man" he needed his slaves to take care of him. Since slaves were not allowed in Ohio, Withers was forced to sell the land, which he offered to Sawyer. He offered the land for one dollar per acre, he also indicated "I will take part payment, four or five young horses at a fair price. "Withers had a somewhat colorful life, and after serving in the military he was also a sheriff and had four children. Somehow he ended up in debt, and even had his ex-wife suing him for unpaid alimony. As far as his slaves were concerned it appears he gave two to his son, and the others were sold to pay off his debts. Information on Withers can be found on various Revolutionary war websites, and from some local records supplied by a previous owner.

Confessions of an English Opium Eater. London: Printed for Taylor and Hessey, 1822. First edition in book form. Large twelvemo (6 7/8 x 4 inches; 176 x 101 mm). vi, 206 pp. including half-title.

A fine and attractive example.Confessions of an English Opium-Eater (1821) is the classic autobiographical narrative written by Thomas De Quincey (1785-1859) concerning his laudanum (tincture of opium) addiction and its effect on his life. The Confessions was "the first major work De Quincey published and the one which won him fame almost overnight..."First published anonymously in September and October 1821 in the London Magazine, the Confessions was released in book form in 1822, and again in 1856, in an edition revised by De Quincey."De Quincey's study of his own opium addiction and its psychological effects traces how childhood and youthful experiences are transformed, under the influence of opium, into symbolical and revealing dreams. The central experience for subsequent dream-formations was his childhood loss of his sister, duplicated by the disappearance of the 15-year-old prostitute Ann, who befriended him during his months of homeless near-starvation in London. The euphoric reveries of the early stages of his addiction and the appalling nightmares of the later stages are described in sonorous and haunting prose, and the work, first appearing in the London Magazine in 1821, conferred instant literary fame on De Quincey, whose first book it was. In 1856 he greatly extended the Confessions for a collected edition of his works, but thereby blunted its effect" (The Oxford Companion to English Literature)."This is the first edition of the first part of the book; the complete text first appeared in Boston in 1850 and in London in 1856" (Tinker).Ashley Library II, p. 37. Sterling 229. Tinker 817.
