        An Act (5 & 6 Vict. Cap. 35) for granting duties on profits arising from property, professions, trades, and offices, until the sixth day of April 1845. Passed 22d June 1842.

      London: printed by George E. Eyre and Andrew Spottiswoode. 1842. 8vo., 283 + (1)pp., original cloth lettered in black on upper cover, the cloth faded, spine browned, else a fine copy with the early ownership signature of Craufurd of Craufurdland> in Ayrshire. 'In 1842, then, Peel was addressing himself through the fiscal system to the health of the economy and to the morale of the nation as a whole. He resolved to redistribute the tax burden by reducing duties upon articles of mass consumption and reintroducing the income tax which had been abolished after a back-bench revolt in 1815. Reducing duties would help to get the nation back to work and take the momentum out of the Chartist movement. Peel did not recognize the political aspirations of the Chartists, and (unlike his father) he would never himself propose statutory restrictions upon the hours of labour. But he understood hunger, and he wanted thoughts of ‘seditionÂ’ to be forgotten ‘in consequence of greater command over the necessaries and minor luxuries of lifeÂ’ (Hansard 3, 87.1048). Imposing a peacetime income tax would demonstrate that the British state was an equitable one, in which burdens were placed (despite the warnings of political economists who identified income as the source of savings and the route to capital formation) upon those best able to bear them. These measures had to be sold to a party which was still solidly protectionist. Accordingly, in 1842, grain was singled out for separate treatment and dealt with first, and on 9 February Peel announced a thorough revision of the sliding scale of 1828—to make it more defensible. Then, on 11 March, when he introduced the budget—which he did himself (the complaisant Goulburn stepping aside)—he began by making much of the deficit. Having worked up a sense of urgency he explored and rejected alternative remedies (lower expenditure, increased duties, and the ‘wretched expedientÂ’ of borrowing). Finally he came to his own plan. An income tax of 7d. in the pound on incomes over £150 p.a. was to be imposed for three years. This would turn the deficit into a surplus. With that surplus Peel proposed to undertake ‘a complete review, on general principles, of all the articles of the tariffÂ’. No duty should ever again be prohibitive. Imports were to be categorized (the word ‘consolidatedÂ’ was not mentioned but might not have been out of place) into raw materials, semi-finished articles, and manufactured products, which were not to pay more than 5 per cent, 12 per cent, and 20 per cent respectively. Duties were reduced on 750 out of the 1200 articles in the tariff (Hansard 3, 61.422–76). It was Peel's finest hour; the crisis of the century was met by the fiscal reform of all the centuries. The budget brought the resignation of the duke of Buckingham, and Peel recalled that ‘these changes Â… were not effected without great murmuring and some open opposition to the Government on the part of many of its supportersÂ’ (Memoirs, 2.100–01). But in fact it was a wonderfully ambiguous measure. He had rationalized the tariff: he had taken a step towards free trade. He could still move in either direction.' [John Prest in ODNB].

        Lettera autografa firmata a Jean-Gabriel Falampin. S.d. ma 1842-43

      1842. 1 pagina in-8 su carta con iniziali ''GS'' impresse a secco, indirizzo ''Monsieur G. Falempin, rue d'Autin 14'', sigilli parzialmente conservati. Lettera in cui la scrittrice gli dice che dovrà confrontarsi con i suoi editori per capire se ''la promesse que je vous ai faite leur porte prejudice ou les contraire''. Dice che però che la parte che le sembra più difficile ''sera de vous satisfaire en temps et lieu car j'en ai encore pour longtemps avant de finir Conuelo, et je ne pourrais faire deux choses à la fois''. Consuelo è un romanzo pubblicato a puntate fra il 1842 e il 1843 e questo permette di collocare la missiva intorno a quegli anni. Falampin fu uno dei fondatori de ''L'Illustration'' e uomo d'affari George Sand tra 1841-1852, anche se la irritò spesso per la sua negligenza e lentezza nel rispondere. Buon esemplare.

Roberts was the first independent, professional British artist to travel so extensively in the Near East. His tour in 1838-9 produced 272 sketches, a panorama of Cairo and three full sketchbooks, enough material to "serve me for the rest of my life" (Roberts, eastern journal, 28 Jan 1839). Over the next decade he made "a series of intire new drawings" for the large coloured lithographs executed by Louis Haghe for The Holy Land, Syria, Idumea, Arabia, Egypt & Nubia, which was originally published by subscription, 1842-9. No publication before this had presented so comprehensive a series of views of the monuments, landscape, and people of the Near East. "Robert's Holy Land was one of the most important and elaborate ventures of nineteenth-century publishing, and it was the apotheosis of the tinted lithograph" (Abbey, Travel). These lithographs were originally published in twenty parts, most parts containing six plates, the price for each part with coloured plates (the most expensive state) being 3 guineas. F.G. Moon.

Slight chipping and soiling to mount. Print in fine condition. Exceptional and beautifully hand-colored lithograph from the most famous and desirable work on the Holy Land.
