During his stay in Surinam he had an eye for daily life in Surinam, he belonged to the opponents of the abolition of slavery: the Surinam slave-owners, from humanitarian motives and from natural self-interest, by no means treat their slaves as badly as is asserted by those who are in favour of abolition. He cannot avoid picturing the harsh and cruel daily existence of the slaves and explaining why they run away, revolt against their masters and are filled with hatred towards the whites. When describing their dance-festivals, he says that the need to find an outlet for their misery accounts for the frenzy with which they throw themselves into it (Introduction by S.W. de Groot to the facsimile edition). He made a large number of charming and meticulous drawings. These very attractive set of views of Surinam include fine scenes of native life, showing costumes, dwellings, ceremonies, festivals, recreations, interiors, utensils, etc. of the negro- and Indian population. Beautiful lithographed plates-book on the people and life in Surinam. - Except some marginal foxing as usual, a fine large-paper copy.Sabin 4737; Muller, America, p.169; Suriname-Cat.

Pearce." From the preface: "The object of the present treatise is to open to the eye of the young student every intricate part of Genethliacal Astrology. It is true that many works have already appeared professing to do this, but the generality of them are replete with the most extravagant and ridiculous absurdities; and, it may be safely added, that no complete work on this science, found exclusively on the principles of mathematics and natural philosophy, has yet been presented to the public." Genethliacal Astrology, also known as Natal Astrology, "is the system of astrology based on the concept that each individual's personality or path in life can be determined by constructing a natal chart for the exact date, time, and location of that individual's birth" (Wikipedia).

        The Practical Ship-Builder

      NY, 1839. NY, 1839. b/w folding plates. Oblong 4to. x-107 pp. plus plates. This is one of the legendary rarities in the literature of marine architecture, being the first American treatise on shipbuilding, and the most influential text until Griffiths published his works on clipper ships in the 1850s. Lauchlan wrote it as a young man, after a youth spent in the shipyards of New York, having served with his more famous brother Donald as an apprentice to Isaac Webb. (Later in life he would command some of his brother&#146;s great clipper ships, including Sovereign of the Seas.) This work is notable for its glossary of shipbuilding terms, its direct and detailed treatment of shipbuilding techniques, and its seven folding plates illustrating, among other things, plans for a schooner, a pilot boat and, interestingly, a steam ship with a hull designed to resist the unique stresses on such a vessel. Scattered staining throughout, folding plates professionally laid down. Chipping to outer edges of a few of the plates, not affecting image. Bound in original mottled calf, spine laid down, with original label. Housed in a modern slipcase with a copy of the 1940 reprint, itself a scarce book, being limited to 250 copies. This reprint also includes as essay on M&#146;Kay by historian and descendant Richard McKay. An excellent working set of the most important book in American marine architecture. Worldcat shows only four libraries holding copies. Not in Scott. Brewington, p. 95, who calls it &#147;Rare.&#148;

        The Practical Ship-Builder

      NY, 1839. b/w folding plates. Oblong 4to. x-107 pp. plus plates. This is one of the legendary rarities in the literature of marine architecture, being the first American treatise on shipbuilding, and the most influential text until Griffiths published his works on clipper ships in the 1850s. Lauchlan wrote it as a young man, after a youth spent in the shipyards of New York, having served with his more famous brother Donald as an apprentice to Isaac Webb. (Later in life he would command some of his brother&#146;s great clipper ships, including Sovereign of the Seas.) This work is notable for its glossary of shipbuilding terms, its direct and detailed treatment of shipbuilding techniques, and its seven folding plates illustrating, among other things, plans for a schooner, a pilot boat and, interestingly, a steam ship with a hull designed to resist the unique stresses on such a vessel. Scattered staining throughout, folding plates professionally laid down. Chipping to outer edges of a few of the plates, not affecting image. Bound in original mottled calf, spine laid down, with original label. Housed in a modern slipcase with a copy of the 1940 reprint, itself a scarce book, being limited to 250 copies. This reprint also includes as essay on M&#146;Kay by historian and descendant Richard McKay. An excellent working set of the most important book in American marine architecture. Worldcat shows only four libraries holding copies. Not in Scott. Brewington, p. 95, who calls it &#147;Rare.&#148;

        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.
