First published in 3 volumes in 1817. (Allibone 1278. & Lowndes 2943 for other items) Mill, writer on India, claimed that the Mughal empire was both extremely wealthy and poorly defended. It was, he argued, possible for a force of no more than three ships and 1500-2000 men to secure Bengal. Mill spoke of the British government's willingness to co-operate in return for a share of the wealth! See ODNB. Wilson, Sanskritist, whose legacy may be assessed in two contexts: his scholarship and his leadership. In the area of his scholarship, his writings and translations were pioneering efforts by one who had no formal scholarly training, as none was available at the time. During his lifetime his writings were widely read and influential among scholarly and public audiences interested in India, though later generations would far surpass his accomplishments in the area of Sanskrit grammar and translation. In the area of intellectual leadership he carefully and effectively crafted three major institutions: the Asiatic Society of Bengal, the East India Company Library, and the Royal Asiatic Society.

Kennedy held the post of chief of medical staff of the Bombay division of the army of the Indus. "His memoirs and travel narrative describe the passage of the army through the Bolan Pass to Kandahar, the attack at Ghazni, the march to Kabul and the return to India. The journey, from November 1838 to December 1839, was uneventful for Kennedy except for the medical aid needed after the battle at Ghazni. Accordingly, much of his narrative is devoted to the Afghan landscape, daily events, and portraits of key figures involved in Afghan affairs" (Riddick). Kennedy was rose to physician-general in 1842, but was later disgraced and imprisoned for bank fraud.

      London,: House of Commons, 3 August, 1840.. Folio, 207 pp., dusted and a little marked; in the original blue printed wrappers, torn with small loss to front, spine worn away revealing the gathers; good original condition. An important report in good original condition: "valuable and historical" (Hocken).Regarding this now rather scarce report, Hocken wrote: "Prompted and promoted by the New Zealand Company, an influential meeting of merchants, bankers, shipowners, and others was held at the Guildhall on 15th April, 1840, to petition Parliament in favour of a systematic colonisation of New Zealand and to preserve it to the Crown... This report was the outcome, and was favourable. The witnesses were E.G. Wakefield, Saxe Bannister, John Blackett, R.N., John Ward, Dandeson Coates, Rev. Drs. Hinds and Beecham, Charles Enderby, W. Hutt, and Alex. Busby. Their evidence gives and account of the natives and their lands, mission labours, origin and history of the New Zealand Company, and the necessity for government and regulated colonisation.".Hocken, p. 90.

        Road near Portland Head, New South Wales

      Circa, 1840.. Handcoloured engraving, approx 380x 300mm, framed. Drawn on stone by W. Gauci, printed by C. Hullmandel for publication. A fine Australian view from a series of tinted lithographic plates (published as Sketches in Australia), of Sydney and Harbour areas, mountains and southern coastal regions of New South Wales, "drawn from nature" by Captain Robert Marsh Westmacott (1801-1870).Little is known of Westmacott, except that he was a captain in the 4th (King's Own) Regiment, and one of a number of British military naval officers who also pursued art. Westmacott was in Australia from 1831 to 1847. His published views represent the last in the chronology of work by military or naval officers in the romantic landscape tradition of the early 19th century.Another of Westmacott's drawings became the welknown lithograph by John Skinner Prout, Destruction Fire at the Albion Mills (1841).
