Friedrich Heinrich Karl, Baron de LaMotte-Fouqué (1777-1843) was a German writer of the romantic school. Robert Louis Stevenson admired Fouqué's story The Bottle Imp and wrote his own version (The Bottle Imp) with a Hawaiian setting. John Henry Newman and Charlotte Mary Yonge both praised Sintram and his Companions. William Morris also became an admirer of Sintram and his Companions, and it influenced Morris' own fiction. Sintram and his Companions and Undine are referred by Louisa May Alcott in Little Women; Jo March mentions wanting them for Christmas in the first chapter of the book and finally receives them in chapter 22. Furthermore, Aslauga's Knight, as well as Sintram and his Companions and Undine are referred to in Jo's Boys, the final book in Alcott's Little Women series, where Aslauga's Knight mirrors the character Dan and his affection for gentle Bess.

        Arrogance, (or Nonchalance) of the Tenth Retorted.

      Cruikshank, Robert. Arrogance, (or Nonchalance) of the Tenth Retorted. R. Cruikshank, fecit. London, April 1824 by Fairburn Broadway Ludgate Hill. BM Catalog #1464. Engraving, nicely hand-colored (11" x 18"). Very good condition. This satirical print, which attacks the manners of young English officers, pictures two scenes, one entitled Ball Room, in which young officers lounge about and refuse to dance with young ladies from Dublin society. "Trot her out. Let us see her foine legs," one of the soldiers calls. The other scene, Drawing Room, shows two young ladies ridiculing the officer in the same manner. "No, Wont do! Trot him out!!" Arrogance or Nonchalance recalls, in part, an insult to Dublin society made by the 10th Hussars who were stationed in Dublin at the time, and who were known for their impoliteness and arrogance. The Tenth was a fashionable regiment par excellence, of which George IV had been colonel till his accession. This print may allude to the allegation that officers from the regiment had stood beneath a theatre staircase to contemplate the legs of pretty women descending. Radical politics and suspicion of the Army inflamed the affair. Dislike of the dandy, often disparaged as effeminate, is also a factor, making this scene useful in understanding fashionable manners of the time.

        Ordinances and decrees of the consultation, provisional government of Texas and the convention, which assembled at Washington March 1, 1836. By order of the secretay[!] of State. Houston, National Banner Office (printed by Niles & Company). 1838. 8vo. Modern brown half morocco (SANGORSKI & SUTCLIFFE, London).

      - Sabin 94959; Streeter, Americana 363; Streeter, Texas 246; WorldCat (5 or 6 copies). Rare first edition of a collection of the ordinances and decrees declaring Texas's right to secede from Mexico and setting up an interim government and its laws. Texas had been a Spanish territory and since 1824 part of the Mexican Federation, but large numbers of immigrants from the United States had settled there. When Mexico established its independence from Spain (1821-1824) the immigrants' already uneasy relations with the government authorities worsened. In 1835, the Mexican president, General Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna, abolished the 1824 federal constitution and assumed greater centralized powers. The present book opens with the 7 November 1835 decree in which "the people of Texas" declare that Santa Anna overthrew the legitimate government of Mexico and that Texas therefore claims the right to secede. It is followed by the "Plan and powers of the provisional government of Texas", adopted 13 November. This led to war on 2 October 1835. These declarations are followed by numerous ordinances of the interim government up to 17 January 1836. With Sangorski & Sutcliffe's binder's stamp on the first free endleaf. Book and binding in very good condition. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Three Autograph Letters Signed, two to his nephew James, the third to his nephew's mother-in-law

      Washington, D.C., 1824. 9 pp. total, pen and ink on paper. Creased from prior folding, some tears along creases, light dampstaining to one letter. In green cloth chemise. 9 pp. total, pen and ink on paper. A series of three letters from James Monroe, written as Secretary of State and President, concerning his nephew and namesake James, son of his brother Andrew Augustine Monroe (1759-1826). "James Monroe (1799-1870) was the promising young son of Monroe's unsuccessful elder brother Andrew. The young James 'had run wild on his father's ill-managed, decaying plantation in Virginia and had little schooling; then his uncle (who at that time combined the offices of secretary of state and secretary of war) sent him, at his own desire, to the West Point Military Academy and, determined, in spite of the boy's earlier disadvantages to turn him into a useful citizen, wrote him letters giving him much good advice, both moral and practical. He felt evidently, that the boy required stern discipline, and thought it necessary to conceal his real affection for him beneath a tone of austerity, almost of harshness. His bark, however, was worse than his bite. That real affection existed, real interest in the boy's welfare and true kindliness of heart towards him, is shown by the great amount of time and trouble and the meticulous thought which the distinguished statesman, busy with more important affairs devoted to his young nephew's career" (Davidson, p. 38). In the first letter, dated 16 July 1814, Monroe writes as Secretary of State to his nephew James, then newly enrolled West Point. Monroe has arranged with Major Partridge of Vermont to be sure that James is well supplied with books and necessaries. The letter continues on, Monroe dispensing a stream of practical advice - avoid debt, keep your good clothes clean and reserved for special occasions, work diligently at your studies, always strive to improve, etc. Monroe offers advice for handling a servant: "If a servant is allowed, he may make up the bed & sweep the room, clean your boots and brush your cloths. But you ought to take care of them, & might brush them. When I was at College, I did almost every thing for myself, & I have found the use of it thro' life. Before this time, I presume, you have seen that it is not disreputable for a young man to wait on himself, and on those older than him, and that by doing certain things, such as having your wood at hand, ready cut up, making up your own fire, lighting your candles, brushing your coat, dusting your shoes, & the like, you keep your room more quiet & clean, have less noise, and are in all respects more comfortable, than if you had to call a servant in on all occasions to do these things for you. I give these hints, for your advantage." Monroe, perhaps concerned that James will be seen as unfairly benefiting from his uncle's influence, warns in a postscript: "You had better not show my letters to anyone." In a second letter, dated 2 November 1821, Monroe writes as President, advising James to visit his parents, help his indigent brother, and proceed carefully in his courtship of his future wife, Elizabeth Mary Douglas: "Another reason, occurs, in favor of this visit, which is that by withdrawing from N. York, till the Lady returns there, & for some time afterwards, on a visit home & to your father, it will be shown, that you do not rest your future prospects & hopes entirely on her, or her family. I think the steps would raise you in her estimation, & that of the family as well as of others." The Douglas family was against Elizabeth's match with James, despite his uncle's high position. In a third, lengthy letter of 18 June 1824, Monroe writes to the mother of Elizabeth Mary Douglas, now married to his nephew James, with a plan to set up James and Elizabeth on a farm in Virginia. A fascinating letter, going into some detail about the economics of the proposal: "I think that the time has arriv'd, when some plan ought to be adopted, with a view to his future status in life, and on this subject, I will communicate to you, freely, my sentiments ... I do not think that [James] ought to remain longer, than a year most, in the army. The peaceful state of the country does not require it, and the duties of the military profession, would occupy to [sic] much of his time, as to prevent the adoption of any fixed plan, for the improvement of their property, for his own advancement in life, and for the education & advancement of their children ... In the city [New York], he would pass an idle life, which might lead to their ruin ... If James leaves the army, he ought, in my opinion, to retire to the country, on a farm, because there, he would have an occupation ... To establish James with his family near us, on a good farm, with a good house and other improvements ... would require from 10 to 12,000 dollars ... such a farm is now for sale near me, at a very low price ... On this farm, with a few hundred dollars additional, five hundred for example, I think that they might live, as well as they could in New York, for three thousand, exclusive of home rent, which would probably amount to five hundred more. The interest on £12,000 at 6 percent is £720, which, with the £500 added, make £1,220 a year. The difference therefore between living in New York, & on a such an estate [in Virginia], would be, at least £2,000 per annum, which in five or six years would pay for the estate. At the end of that term, the estate, as may readily be conceived, would be of much grater value, as it would be much improved ... We frankly own, that we should be happy to have them as our neighbours, knowing him to be an honorable & estimable young man, and respecting highly as my whole family do, the amiable and excellent qualities of your daughter." [with:] Pre-printed certificate completed in manuscript, appointing Hon. James Monroe as a member of the Fifth Ward Tippecanoe Club, New York, 10 June 1840, engraved vignette, signed by the president, two vice-presidents and two secretaries, split on folds with one small tear with loss, with engraved vignettes to folded verso and autograph letter to Monroe from a club secretary hoping that he will receive a certificate "as a humble testimonial of our esteem for you, and is a tribute to your worth as a public officer" [and:] 14 letters relating to the Douglas family of New York in the mid-19th century.

Speckled edges.l Three early accounts on the anatomy and morphology of one of Australia's most famous mammals: the duck-billed Platypus, then a still quite mysterious animal, by Robert Knox. The three plates show the "poison gland and duct in the foot" (it is the only poisonous mammal), the "complex clavicle and scapulae", and the "organs of generation in the male". On page 27, Knox remarked "It is well known that the specimens of this very extraordinary animal first brought to Europe were considered by many as impositions. They reached England by vessels which had navigated the Indian seas, a circumstance in itself sufficient to rouse the suspicions of the scientific naturalist, aware of the monstrous impostures which the artful Chinese had so frequently practised on European adventurers.". Contained in volume 5(1) of the 'Memoirs of the Wernerian Natural History Society', together with several unrelated papers, as well as Knox' two accounts "of the foramen centrale of the retina, generally called the "Foramen of Soemmering", as seen in the eyes of certain reptiles", with a fine plate. Boards extremities somewhat rubbed and worn; old stamp on title page. A few marginalia in the index (not in Knox's paper). A very good copy. Rare. Not in Ferguson. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Rosa Montezuma / Rosier des Montezuma

      Paris 1824 - Stipple engraving, printed in colours and finished by hand, engraved by Langlois. Very good condition apart. More than with any other painter, Redouté's flowers are alive, and always shown at the ephemeral moment of their greatest beauty. Pierre-Joseph Redouté was one of the world's great flower painters. Born into a family that had been painters for at least two generations, Redouté went to Paris in 1782 with his brother where they worked as scene painters for the Théâtre Italien. Redouté painted flowers in his spare time. The search for subjects led him to the Jardin du Roi and eventually to Gerard van Spaendonck who made him an assistant. While at the Jardin du Roi, Redouté came to know Charles-Louis L'Heritier, an amateur botanist and writer of independent means. He gave Redouté a full-time job as an illustrator, instructing him in plant anatomy. Redouté's scientific understanding of plants contributed greatly to the clarity of his depictions. But it was Redouté's work in stipple engraving and colour printing that was to be of the greatest importance. Stippling and the application of two or three colour inks to one plate were engraving innovations that Redouté brought to French printmaking, and these were brought to perfection in Les Roses from which this work comes. Redouté together with Claude-Antoine Thory, an ardent botanist and collector of roses, have together in Les Roses produced a work not only of great artistic merit, but also an invaluable scientific record as well. `Redouté and Thory knew, described and figured almost all the important roses known in their day. Included were many of the key ancestors of our present-day roses. The plates in Les Roses have artistic value, botanical and documentary value, both for the species and cultivars still surviving and for those that have disappeared' (Gisele de la Roche). The roses used as specimens for the work were taken from the collections of Thory, the Malmaison gardens, and from other collections around Paris. Many of the flowers were novelties in Redouté's time, and a number were dedicated to the memory of his friends and acquaintances, such as l'Héritier de Brutelle and Ventenat. Cf.

        Sir, You Will Herewith Receive the First of Four Codes, Which Forms.

      1824 - Livingston Solicits Criticism of His System of Penal Law Livingston, Edward [1764-1836]. [Plumer, William (1759-1850)]. Sir, You Will Herewith Receive the First of Four Codes, Which Forms a System of Penal Law, Prepared for the State of Louisiana. [Running Title]. New York, November 29, 1824. Single sheet folded once to form two 9-3/4" x 7-1/4" leaves. Printed text on recto of first leaf, signed in type, verso of second leaf addressed. Light toning, a bit of discoloration to corners, fold lines, fold between the two sheets torn, but mended on verso with archival tape, small stain from sealing wax, light rubbing to edges. A rare item. $750. * Livingston mailed this circular letter to distinguished jurists and political figures to solicit feedback on the final draft of the first part of his System of Penal Law. It was, in effect, a cover sheet. He explains the nature of the code and asks his readers "to note in the margin such observations as occur to you for its amelioration, and to communicate them to me with your first leisure. He ends his letter with a request for "the aid of your learning, experience, and judgment, to supply what is deficient, and to correct what is erroneous in the work." Plumer, the recipient of this copy was an important New Hampshire lawyer, politician and Baptist lay preacher. He is best known for his efforts to convert Dartmouth College into a public institution while governor of New Hampshire, a post he held in 1812-1813 and 1816-1819. His efforts resulted in the great U.S. Supreme Court case Trustees of Dartmouth College v. Woodward. Livingston's circular is a rare item. However, a few copies are found today bound into copies of the System. Shaw and Shoemaker, American Imprints 16927. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Certayne egloges . whereof the first three conteyne the miseryes of courtiers and courtes of all princes in general, .(Colophon: London, John Cawood), 1570. Small folio (27 x 19.5 cm). With a large woodcut on the title-page showing four ships filled with fools (15.5 x 10 cm), and 116 woodcuts in the text (mostly ca. 11 x 8 cm) including 11(?) repeats. Gold-tooled brown calf (ca. 1855?), each board with a large built-up centrepiece and a built-up frame, gold-tooled turn-ins. Rebacked preserving the original backstrip.

      - ESTC S107135; Pforzheimer 41; for the woodcuts: Hodnett 1824-1881, 1883-1899, 1901-1931. The famous second (1570) Latin and English edition of Sebastian Brant's great Ship of fools, containing Jakob Locher's Latin verse translation, Alexander Barclay's English verse translation and Barclay's printed annotations in the fore-edge margins. Brant first published his Ship of fools in German as Narrenschiff in 1494. The present edition is illustrated with the woodcuts made for Pynson's very rare 1509 edition, and they are better printed here than in 1509 (Pforzheimer notes that all but "two or three" are "very well preserved"). The woodcuts are based on those of the first (German) edition of 1494 where some are ascribed to the Master of Haintz-Narr and others formerly to Albrecht Dürer (but now to the Master of the Johann Bergman printing office).Sebastian Brandt (1457-1521) is famous largely for this verse satire, where more than a hundred fools set sail without a pilot in search of a fool's paradise. Each episode harshly satirizes one particular vice or folly, sparing neither clergy nor scholars, and each fool meets his death in an appropriate manner. Brant satirizes men and women in all walks of life and engaged in various activities, so the woodcuts add not only immediacy, beauty and humour, but also a view of historical clothing, implements and customs. Although intended as a dire warning of the perils of foolish behaviour, immorality and short-sighted actions, the book proved enormously popular largely because of its black humour, and it saw many translations, adaptations and spin-offs. It probably also influenced Shakespeare and many other literary works. With bookplates of the London investment banker and Mexican mining entrepreneur Joseph Tasker (1797-1861) of Middleton Hall; the bibliophile Charles William Dyson Perrins (1864-1958); and the bibliophile and bookseller William Foyle (1885-1963). With an occasional running head, folio number or marginal note slightly shaved, one leaf with browned patches, the title-page slightly dirty and a few marginal chips or tears repaired, but still in good condition. The binding has been rebacked, probably with new headbands, but the binding is also good. The very influential second edition of the best English translation of a universal classic.

III p. 243 "Following the completion of his investigation of natural fats, Chevreul wrote a work of a more general nature, Considérations générales sur l'analyse organique (1824), which is a reflection on the many years of research with organic materials. Here Chevreul considered the methods of research in organic chemistry, methods that he himself used with such success in his investigations. The primary analytical problems were how to determine whether one had a pure substance or a mixture and how to resolve the frequently complex animal or plant material into its immediate principles. It was Chevreul who placed this immediate analysis on a rigorous basis. He considered the methods used in handling natural products, in isolating pure substances from them in unaltered form, and in recognizing their purity. He gave precise criteria for what constituted a pure organic compound and presented for the first time a clear and accurate account of the methods of immediate analysis that must necessarily precede elementary analysis.'' - En Français dans le texte n°237 "prolongement plus méthodologique de ses recherches (sur les coprs gras)..."

        Introductory Report to a System of Penal Law Prepared for the State.

      1824 - New Orleans: Benjamin Levy & Co., 1824. First Issue of the Introductory Report to Livingston's Louisiana System of Penal Law [Livingston, Edward (1764-1836)]. Introductory Report to a System of Penal Law Prepared for the State of Louisiana [headline title]. [New Orleans: Benjamin Levy & Co., 1824]. 185 pp. (12-1/4" x 7-1/2"). Recent period-style quarter calf over marbled boards, gilt title and date to spine. Light toning to text, negligible light foxing in a few places. Ex-library. Small inkstamp to head of p. 1. $2,000. * First edition. Livingston's Penal Code marked an epoch in the broad international movement for penal reform. Profoundly influenced by Bentham, it stressed prevention over vengeance in every facet of his work. Never enacted, it nevertheless established itself as one of the great standards for other reformers. The Introductory Report reviews the issues addressed by the Code. Bibliographically distinct, it was probably transmitted to the Louisiana General Assembly with the Code, a point suggested by its first sentence: "I lay before the General Assembly, with unaffected diffidence, the System which they directed me to prepare" (1). Bibliographic data is not included in the first edition of the Introductory Report, but Jumanville and Korn attribute the printing to Levy. Hicks, Men and Books Famous in the Law 180.

        JOURNAL OF A TOUR IN ASIA MINOR, with comparative remarks on the ancient and modern geography of that country

      John Murray, London 1824 - Quarter bound in original green patterned cloth and tan boards, paper spine label, page edges rough trimmed. pp (xxx), 362, (2, ads) + frontispiece illustration + large folding map + 2 full-page plans of Troas. Illustrations in text, indexed. Spine label tanned; partial cloth split to front joint neatly repaired; slight damp and soil spotting to boards; front inner hinge neatly repaired with rice paper; two old private ink ownership inscriptions at front (person at King's College, Toronto); damp stain to corner of frontispiece; bit of foxing to the two full page maps and only occasional foxing spots in text; large chip to fore margin of last two leaves of text (no printing affected); soft corner creases to late leaves; page edges tanned; leaves unopened at edges of last quarter of the text; one inch tear to inner margin of folding map neatly repaired with clear archival paper tape on the blank side; in all, a VG clean, tight and unworn pleasant copy. As an officer in the Royal Regiment of Artillery, Leake was in 1799 sent to Constantinople to train the Ottoman army for its defense against Napoleon. A journey through Asia Minor in 1800 to join the British fleet at Cyprus kindled his interest in antiquarian topography. He was later sent out again to survey the coasts of Albania and Morea. He retired from the army in 1815 and devoted the rest of his life to antiquarian topology. He was elected to the Royal Society in 1815 and was a founding member of the Royal Geographical Society. "His account is the first complete and systematic description of the geography of Asia Minor. All of his work is equally precise as regards geography, antiquities and philology." - Blackmer 972.

Songsheet commemorating Andrew Jackson's victory at the Battle of New Orleans. The song praises the valor and and tenacity of the Kentucky troops under Jackson's command. First written in 1821, Jackson later used the song in his presidential campaigns in 1824 and 1828. "But Jackson he was wide awake, / And was'nt scar'd at trifles, / For well he knew what aim we take . With our Kentucky rifles; / Se he led us down to Cypress Swamp, / The ground being low and mucky, / There stood John Bull in martial pomp, / But here was old Kentucky." Scarce and ephemeral.

        Précis du Système Hiéroglyphique des Anciens Égyptiens ou Recherches sur les élémens premiers de cette écriture sacrée, sur leurs diverses combinaisons, et sur les rapports de ce système avec les autres méthodes graphiques égyptiennes

      Paris: Treuttel et Würtz, 1824. First edition. Hardcover. g to vg. Quarto (9 1/4 x 6"). XVI, 410pp. Modern half black morocco over marbled paper covered boards. Raised bands. Ribbon marker. Marbled endpapers. Engraved title vignette. First Edition of Champollion's celebrated compendium of the hieroglyphic system, a foundational text of modern Egyptology. In this remarkable work the author describes, step by step, with numerous examples and details, the method he followed to discover and document the three aspects of hieroglyphics: the phonogram images, the figurative representations, and the symbolic representations. These three types of characters, used together, have been the source of so many confusions in the previous attempts to achieve their decoding. Once his description is completed, Champollion compares his method to the one which was described by Clement of Alexandria in his "Stromata."This work is complete with its 16 full-page plates, including many folded.Binding slightly rubbed along joints. Ex-library bookplate on inside of front cover. Half-title age-toned. Sporadic foxing / age-toning throughout. Text in French. Binding in overall good+, interior in good to very good condition.

        Altra veduta del Tempio della Sibilla in Tivoli

      Roma 1824 - LE ANTICHITA DEI CONTORNI DI ROMA OSSIA LE PIU FAMOSE CITTA DEL LAZIO L’opera viene pubblicata tra il 1824 e il 1826, divisa in quattro parti comprendenti le Antichità di Tivoli, di Cora, di Albano e Castel Gandolfo, di Preneste e del Tuscolo. La serie viene preceduta per la prima volta da un’introduzione storico-critica con la Spiegazione alle tavole, ed inserisce alcune tavole, eseguite a tratto, di piante e restauri con ricostruzioni di monumenti personalmente rilevati e misurati. Nel Discorso preliminare l’autore indica che lo scopo è quello di rivolgersi ad un più vasto pubblico di amatori e non quello di offrire un semplice strumento conoscitivo dei monumenti romani agli architetti. Nelle Antichità dei contorni di Roma, Rossini riunisce in un solo volume le analoghe vedute che Piranesi aveva pubblicato in tempi diversi, con l’intento di raccogliere in un’unica opera le antichità presenti nel Lazio meridionale. Nella raccolta si può notare come l’autore ricerchi un’aderenza formale allo stile piranesiano, che si riscontra nell’uso dei chiaroscuri fortemente accentuati, nei tagli delle inquadrature e nella scelta dei soggetti; anche nei frontespizi posti all’inizio di ogni sezione, i frammenti archeologici e gli elementi architettonici vengono disordinatamente ordinati all’interno della composizione. La maggior parte dei soggetti scelti, in particolare le vedute di Tivoli e dei Castelli Romani, non si distaccano dalla tradizione vedutistica dei secoli precedenti, punto di riferimento può essere stato l’incisore G. F. Gmelin che proprio agli inizi del XIX secolo, aveva pubblicato una raccolta di vedute dei dintorni di Roma. ANTIQUITIES OUT OF ROME, THE MOST BEAUTIFUL CITIES OF LAZIO The work was published between 1824 and 1826, divided into four parts including Antichità di Tivoli, di Cora, di Albano e Castel Gandolfo, di Preneste e del Tuscolo. The series was preceded for the first time by an historic-critical introduction with the Explanation of the plates; he also included in the collection some line block plates of plans and monument restorations of great relevance. His preliminary Discorso states that his aim is to reach the highest number of collectors, not just to realize a study book. In his Antichità dei contorni di Roma, Rossini put together in one volume some analogous views Piranesi had already published along the years, with the aim to collect in one work all the antique monuments in the region of Southern Lazio. In his collection the artist tried to comply with the style of Piranesi, which can be found in the use of chiaroscuro, the choice of the framings and the subjects; even the front pages of every section, the archaeological and architectural elements are confusedly ordered inside the work. The majority of his subjects, especially the views of Tivoli and the Roman Castles, are still quite close to tradition of the veduta of the previous century. G. F. Gmelin, who had published a collection at the very beginning of the XIX century, can be considered his point of reference for that matter. Luigi Rossini incisore.

        The case of Lecesne and Escoffery

      London, 1824-8 - Original set of Court Papers for the legal case brought in London comprising Dispatches sent by Lord Manchester, Governor of Jamaica from 1824 to 1827, 728pp + Letters received from the Colonial Department 1824-7, 104pp + "Statement of the Estate & Effects of George Mackay of Pembroke in Trelawny" together with papers relating to this, 11pp. + 1828 Affidavits and papers to support the claim that Louis Lecesne had not in fact been born in Jamaica + sundry other papers relating to the case. All in neat and clear manuscript in fine condition housed in quarter calf box. Also 1825 House of Commons report on the affair and a finely bound book of photocopies of Legal works connected with the case. These documents, dealing with Jamaica’s colonial jurisprudence, will be of great interest to lawyers and historians, particularly to legal historians, interested in the unfair, discriminatory and inhuman colonial legal and judicial system. People conversant with the present day principles of civil liberties and human rights will be shocked to read these legal documents highlighting the iniquitous and heartless colonial jurisprudence and callous judicial system. These documents show the colonial cruel and injudicious slave-owning mentality persisting in the 1820s and after. Simply stated, the facts of this long and sordid episode in Jamaica, where justice was finally achieved by a tortuous route to the British House of Commons, were that in 1823 the governor of Jamaica, acting hastily upon rumours of revolt by slaves and others against the Jamaican government, deported to Haiti two liquor merchants, who were disenfranchised ‘people of colour’. This was done despite the fact that, during the deportation process, they were freed from detention, for lack of evidence, by the courts accepting their application under a petition of habeaus corpus. The proceedings of this case in Jamaica in the 19th century case highlight the heavy handedness of the colonial authorities against former slaves and other subjugated minorities. It is important to emphasise that in those days the laws of categorising the population of Jamaica, and some other colonies, were rather complicated and cumbersome. For example, people of colour (mostly the result of white fathers and black mothers) unless born free or ‘manumized’ (the act of liberation of a slave from bondage: see Fenwick v. Chapman 9 Pet 472), remained slaves until the fourth degree. Until the mixing of blood had reached that degree, they remained slaves. People in colonies were categorised as whites, free people of colour, free blacks, people of colour in slavery, and blacks in slavery. The restrictions on non-whites were grievously onerous and obnoxious. For example, all non-whites were incapacitated by the Jamaican law-makers from giving evidence against white persons. The two merchants were lucky as a British sea captain took them from Haiti to England. On finding out their plight, some of the Abolitionists took their petition to the House of Commons. The parliamentary debates and the document produced therefor are of great interest. So is the other correspondence connection with this, particularly a letter written on 17th September 1816 by Stephen Lushington to William Courtenay. A related Court of the King’s Bench law report of 1830 of a libel case again John Murray, a bookseller of repute, is also included: R. v. Murray. The two merchants eventually were found to have been born in Jamaica and to be Jamaican citizens. As such they could not have been deported. They triumphantly returned to Jamaica.
