        First Report of the Commissioners Appointed to Inquire as to the Best Means of Establishing an Efficient Constabulary Force, in the Counties of England and Wales. TOGETHER WITH Report from the Select Committee on Postal Communication between London and Paris.

      W. Clowes, London: 1839 and 1850 - Folio. vi + 255 pp. and xxii + 299 pp. Bound in contemporary half-calf over marbled boards. Contrasting title label, lettered gilt. A trifle worn at extremities but a very good copy. POLICE :- Edwin Chadwick (1800-1890), one of the nineteenth century's great reformers, and Charles Rowan, chief commissioner of the new Metropolitan Police, conducted this inquiry into the means of improving police protection and getting at the 'removable antecedents of crime.' It was Chadwick who also conducted the groundbreaking inquiry (PMM 313) into sanitary conditions in 1842 which led to tremendous advances in public health reform. POST :- 'Select Committee appointed to ascertain the most expeditious and least expensive mode of postal communication between London and Paris and the Northern parts of Europe'. (p.iii). The report comments on the lateness of mails between London and Boulogne via Folkestone, this route having temporarily replaced the Dover to Calais route. The two routes and respective harbour facilities are then compared. The Committee concluded that the Boulogne route remained the most expensive and stated that 'risk of serious accident to the packets is greater . [and] that Calais could not well be superceded' (p.v). The Committee recommended that trains from Dover to London be accelerated and noted delays in day mails from Paris. Proceedings include a fuller draft report. 36 witnesses appeared before the Committee on 10 days of evidence session held between March and May 1850. 1,861 questions related to the mails, their organisation, times and procedures involved and overall efficiency (of railways and steam packets). These questions were put to British and French postal officials, railway and ship workers associated with the mail service. A further 275 questions were put to Parliamentary clerks, newspaper proprietors and officials connected with the printing of Parliamentary papers (including Henry Hansard). These largely related to the procedures linked to the aforementioned breach of privilege. Appendices (110 pages) include correspondence, documents and statistics relating to the Paris to London mail service. KENT LOCAL GOVERNMENT BRITISH 19TH CENTURY LAW COMMERCE- KENT

        De la bienfaisance publique. Nouvelle edition. Tome premier (-tome seconde)

      Societé Belge de Librairie, Bruxelles 1839 - 2 voll. in 8, pp. XIII + (3) + 504 con tavv. sinott. n.t. e 1 tav. f.t. più volte rip.; 550 con tavv. sinott. n.t. Intonsi. Alcune cc. presentano leggere gore marginali. Br. ed. Seconda ed. dello stesso anno della prima pubblicata a Parigi di uno dei più importanti e completi trattati sulla storia dell'indigenza considerata nei suoi rapporti con l'economia sociale, la storia e la statistica. L'A. si sofferma sulla nascita delle istituzioni volte a porre un argine al fenomeno in Francia e nelle altre nazioni europee con un'analisi dettagliata delle diverse legislazioni. Gerando mette a frutto la lunga esperienza in qualità di direttore degli ospizi parigini, delle case per sordomuti, e di altre istituzioni previdenziali. Il suo approccio ai problemi sociali deriva sicuramente dal fatto che egli dedichi i suoi primi studi all'antropologia, pubblica infatti una guida all'osservazione dei popoli selvaggi ed è considerato come il primo antropologo francese. Con Le visiteur du pauvre, apparso nel 1824, Gerando fa dell'osservazione la condizione stessa dello studio degli indigenti: la "visita" non ha più solo una funzione caritatevole ma una funzione di osservazione.

Pages: vi + 1 (List of Plates) + 143 + 1 + 16 (publisher's list) + 10 Plates (featuring full-page engravings taken from unpublished drawings and other illustrations), and including 12 vignettes in the text. Complete as called for. The cloth has darkened towards the edges and spine, and is lightly dusted. The corners are gently bumped with light wear. The spine has dulled. The spine ends are rubbed with minor loss to the cloth. The cloth is partially split to the edges of the spine in 2 or 3 places, but the spine is holding firm. The binding is secure. The pages are generally fine and clean, lightly tanned, with occasional spotting and foxing, mainly to the plates and their adjacent pages. Several pages remain uncut to the top edge, suggesting that this copy was hardly read. Small, neat bookseller's stamp to front pastedown. FROM THE PREFACE: "At an era of tranquility, when, by the practical application of science, the whole continent of Europe has been rendered most easily accessible, and when the banks of the Rhine, in particular, are literally crowded by thousands of our summer tourists, so that, to use the words of the Roman poet, 'nota magis nulli domus est sua.' it has appeared to the Editor of this little Treatise, that the English version, now attempted and accompanied with illustrations, might not be unacceptable to the public. The great number of those who are well acquainted with the beauties of the Rhine itself, and its Thermal districts, and Frankfort and Heidelberg, are far from being aware, that, at a distance little greater than those from its banks, there lies, on the opposite side, a city abounding in obbjects of so deep interest as Treves.". CONTENTS: Preface; Introduction; The Porta Martis; Palace of Constantine; Remains of the Roman Thermae; Remains of the Amphitheatre; Remains of the Ancient Bridge over the Moselle; The Monument at Igel. PLATES: the plates depict the various antiquities in close-up, or set in picturesque landscapes. VIGNETTES: these include attractive views, plans, and close-ups. THE AUTHORS: Professor John Hugh Wyttenbach was Director of the Gymnasium at Treves, member of many learned societies, and Knight of the Order of the Red Eagle. Dawson Turner (1775-1858) was a banker, botanist, and antiquary. Ref 952. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Die Macht der Einfachheit

      . Öl auf Leinwand, unten links signiert "Hoguet", 14,5 x 19,5 cm. Prov: Alter Familienbesitz der Grafen Minnigerode.. Im schäumenden Wasser der Brandung arbeiten vier Fischer an einem Boot. Die Segel sind eingeholt, über die Reling quellen die an Deck abgelegten Netze und Segel. Drei der Männer stemmen sich unter größter Anstrengung gegen den Rumpf des Segelbootes. Sie stabilisieren den schweren Korpus während der vierte sich gebückt an der Sicherung unter dem Kiel zu schaffen macht. Am niedrigen Horizont kreuzen weitere Boote mit vom scharfen Wind geblähten Segeln. Das raue Wetter und die harte Arbeit der Seeleute lassen kaum Platz für eine idealisierte Sicht der Dinge. Und daher es ist auch nicht die majestätische Erscheinung eines am Winde segelnden Schiffes oder eine spektakuläre Ansicht eines Schiffbruchs, die Hoguet in den unmittelbaren Fokus seines Seestücks rückt. Der dunkle, gewichtige Körper eines einfachen Fischerbootes nimmt einen großen Teil der zentralen Fläche in dem kleinformatigen Bild ein. Himmel, Horizont, Wasser und Strand treten zurück und bilden lediglich einen gewissen Rahmen für die Szene im Vordergrund. Auch wenn sich einzelne Elemente der Schiffsausstattung und Kleidung der Seeleute erkennen lassen, so liegt doch das hauptsächliche Augenmerk des Künstlers nicht auf einer exakten Dokumentation der maritimen Details. Ähnlich wie Eugene Isabey, der Sohn seines Lehrers Jean-Baptiste Isabey, überwindet Hoguet in dieser kleinen Studie den dokumentarischen Anspruch der traditionellen Marinemalerei zugunsten einer der romantischen Schule verpflichteten Darstellungsweise. Die alltägliche Szene ist daher auch keine auf eine repräsentative Wirkung, wie den Triumph des Menschen über die Naturgewalten, abzielende Komposition. Das Maritime bildet einen der zentralen Aspekte im Schaffen des Berliner Malers Charles Hoguet. 1839 war er in das Atelier des besonders für seine Seestücke bekannten Malers Wilhelm Krause in Berlin eingetreten, wo zur gleichen Zeit auch der jüngere Bruder Eduard Hildebrands, der Seemann und Maler Fritz Hildebrandt, Schüler war. Mit ihm traf er dann auch 1840 in Paris im Atelier Eugene Ciceris wieder zusammen. Gemeinsam wurden sie im Jahr darauf Isabeys Schüler. Für seine Seestücke konnte Hoguet früh aus der eigenen Erfahrung vor Ort schöpfen. Er bereiste in seiner Ausbildungszeit in Paris die Küsten der Bretagne, Normandie, Picardie und Südfrankreichs und hielt sich mit Hildebrandt eine Weile in England auf. Bereits in jener frühen Zeit seiner künstlerischen Laufbahn kultivierte er damit durch eigene Anschauung und Anteilnahme seine Affinität zum Leben an und mit der See. Kaum verwunderlich erscheint daher, dass der Maler uns die alltägliche Szene unter dem wolkenverhangenen Himmel von einem Standpunkt direkt am Strand aus zeigt, etwa in Augenhöhe der Seeleute. Damit wirkt sie gleichsam dem wahren Leben abgelauscht. Sehr guter und frischer Zustand, inklusive Rahmen.

Die beliebten, 1833-48 vom Staatsbuchhaltungsbeamten Weis (1801-62) herausgegebenen "Briefe des Hans-Jörgel von Gumpoldskirchen" waren eine für den vormärzlichen Humor wichtige Wiederbelebung der "Eipeldauer-Briefe". Die kritischen und vielgelesenen "Hans-Jörgel"-Briefe unterliefen die Metternich'sche Zensur durch mundartliche Derbheit; zuletzt aber wurde die Zeitschrift selbst das Opfer der Revolution (vgl. Wurzbach LIV, 120): Nach einer Umbenennung in den "Constitutionellen Hans-Jörgel" wurde sie eingestellt und dann 1851 als "Hans Jörgel von Speising" kurzfristig wiederbelebt. - Einband berieben; Ecken, Kanten und Gelenke stärker bestoßen.

Contiene multitud de artículos que reflejan las costumbres de la época. Fue escrito por Modesto lafuente, a quien desde entonces dieron en nombrarle por el título de la publicación"). Considerado como epígono a los de Mariano José de Larra, Lafuente comienza a sacar su periódico al poco tiempo de haber abandonado su carrera eclesiástica, en la ciudad de León el cuatro de abril de 1837, tomando el título de la novela homónima del padre Isla, que en aquel momento gozaba de gran popularidad; y en julio de 1838 trasladará su edición a Madrid, formando parte de la primera edad de oro del periodismo satírico-político, costumbrista y literario de la historia de la prensa española. Sus primeros 52 números (denominados "capilladas") aparecerán cada ocho días hasta el 29 de marzo de 1838, siendo su editor responsable e impresor el leonés Cándido Paramio y Pascual, siendo un periódico de pequeño formato, a una columna y de entre las 16 y las 24 páginas. Tras su marcha a Madrid, Lafuente lo hace reaparecer el uno de julio de ese mismo año, ahora con una frecuencia bisemanal, siendo estampado en la imprenta de F. de P. Mellado, que aparece también como su editor responsable. Se subtitulará ahora "periódico satírico de política y costumbres" y comenzará a insertar ilustraciones, (55106).
