         The New Jamaica Almanack, and Register, for the Year of our Lord 1806

      Kingston: Stevenson and Smith, 1806. 12mo. 184, [16]pp. The calendar interleaved with blank, plus additional blanks in rear. Contemporary green wallet-style moroccoEarly Jamaica almanac, including an early Jewish calendar.Some early Jamaica almanacs, like the present, include a page showing the Jewish calendar, which "would seem to be an indication of the importance of Jewish residents in the eyes of Christian Jamaicans" (B. W. Korn, "The Haham DeCordova of Jamaica," in: American Jewish Archives 18:2 (Nov. 1966)). These Jamaican calendars represent some of the earliest appearances of Hebrew font in the Western Hemisphere, in a publication intended specifically for Jews. Earlier works with Hebrew type, such as Judah Monis's Hebrew Grammar, were intended for a Gentile audience. Beyond the calendar, this almanac is filled with information about the colony, including pages devoted to each parish with details on population (including slaves), public office holders, court sessions, etc.

         A Treatise on Indigence;

      London: J. Hatchard., 1806. exhibiting a general view of the national resources for productive labour; with propositions for ameliorating the condition of the poor, and improving the moral habits and increasing the comforts of the labouring people, particularly the rising generation; by regulations of political economy, calculated to prevent poverty from descending into indigence, to produce sobriety and industry, to reduce the Parochial Rates of the Kingdom, and generally to promote the Happiness and Security of the community at large, by the diminution of moral and penal offences, and the future prevention of crimes. Octavo (209 x 136 mm). Recent quarter calf and marbled boards, spine lettered gilt, green laid paper endpapers. Complete with folding table at p. 23 and final advertisement leaf. Ownership stamp of the Women's University Settlement, Nelson Square, Southwark to front free endpaper and to upper margin of p. 83, shelf mark to title in ink. Short tear in the gutter at the head of the title, title a little dust soiled at head, occasional light spotting; a very good copy. First edition of Colquhoun's major work on the question of poverty and pauperism, its relationship to crime and disorder and the need for a new comprehensive system of police. This valuable work contains plans for a board of education, national savings bank with state guarantee to depositoers, a system of reproductive work for the unemployed, a national poor-rate uniformly assessed, and the issue of a police gazette, containing statistics of crime and descriptions of the persons of offenders. Colquhoun begins with a clear definition of "poverty" which is to be distinguished from "indigence". In this he was following the lead of Jeremy Bentham, and his sentiments clearly echo those of Bentham. He states that poverty is "an indispensable and necessary ingredient in civil society", and is "that state and condition... where the individual has no surplus in store, and, consequently, no property but what is derived from the constant exercise of industry in the various occupations of life; or in other words, it is the state of every one who must labour for subsistence. Poverty is therefore a most necessary and indispensable ingredient in society, without which nations and communities could not exist in a state of civilization." "Indigence therefore and not poverty, is the evil. It is that condition in society which implies want, misery, and distress. It is the state of any one who is destitute of the means of subsistence, and is unable to labour to produce it to the extent nature requires. The natural source of subsistence is the labour of the individual; while that remains with him he is denominated poor when it fails in whole or in part he becomes indigent." This definition of indigence precedes a discussion about an "appropriate system of police," "a system of pauper and general police," and "the board a channel of instructions by means of police gazette." "By the term police we are to understand all those regulations in a country which apply to the comfort, convenience, and safety of the inhabitants, whether it regards their security against the calamity of indigence, or the effects produced by moral and criminal offences." Colquhoun makes it clear that by "police" he means all the modes of control and prevention which society can bring to bear to maintain social order. Once an offence or offences have been committed it is no longer a matter of police but a matter for the magistrates. Colquhoun regrets that at the time of writing "the whole system of the national police is without that watchful and superintending agency which is indispensably necessary to produce a preventive effect; and to this cause is chiefly attributed the great increase of indigence, vagrancy, and crimes." From these arguments it is possible to see that for Colquhoun, police and poor law are one of the same; in fact poor-law is subsumed within and becomes an aspect of Police in its original wider sense. Colquhoun's concept, therefore, of a system of police, is of a central office of social policy, working under the aegis of the Home Department, whose function is essentially preventive and whose object apart from the narrow ones of preventing crime and securing the property of the individual, is social amelioration in the widest sense especially including all that tends to the better education and employment of the poor.

         NARRATIVE, OF A FIVE YEARS' EXPEDITION, AGAINST THE REVOLTED NEGROES OF SURINAM, IN GUIANA, ON THE WILD COAST OF SOUTH AMERICA; FROM THE YEAR 1772, TO 1777 : ELUCIDATING THE HISTORY OF THAT COUNTRY, AND DESCRIBING ITS PRODUCTIONS, . . . WITH AN ACCOUNT OF THE INDIANS OF GUIANA, & NEGROES OF GUINEA

      London: Printed for J. Johnson, . . . & Th. Payne, 1806. Second Edition, corrected. With memorable plates that include some of Blake's best work as an engraver, this is the second--and authentic--edition of the revealing personal and political account of life in 18th-century South America, written by a Scottish soldier who joined a Dutch expedition to put down a slave revolt in the Netherlands' colony of Surinam. The author, J. G. Stedman (1744-97), found himself in sympathy with those rebelling against appalling forced servitude, and he published his work originally in 1796 to express that view. Unfortunately, the first edition was heavily edited to soften his anti-slavery views; our "corrected" edition restores Stedman's original text. Stedman's personal story involves a heartbreaking account of love and marriage with a mixed-race slave, Joanna, whom he could not take with him when he returned to England. The political dimension of the work centers around Stedman's horror at the cruelty and inhumanity of the slaveholders, and he did not hesitate to profess his contempt for them and his admiration for the rebel slaves. According to Cox, "his descriptions of the cruelties practiced upon the negroes, and of the moral deterioration resulting to their masters, forms one of the most vivid indictments of slavery that have been penned," and his narrative was a source of inspiration to the abolitionist movement. Stedman was a talented draftsman as well as a raconteur, and his illustrations of the beautiful and fascinating flora and fauna, and his touching portrait of Joanna, contrast sharply with the brutally detailed depictions of the tortures inflicted on slaves. The engravings of Stedman's drawings are quite fine; Keynes tells us that the plates Blake did for this book "have long been recognized as among the best executed and most generally interesting of all his journeyman work." Among them are: three shocking scenes of torture that are praised by the DNB for their "extraordinary power and pathos"; a lighthearted illustration of "wonderfully humanoid" macaque monkeys; and a final allegorical engraving of "Europe Supported by Africa & America," notable for its demure but unmistakable sensuality. Other copies of this work are generally noted as being somewhat (or more severely) foxed and browned; the present copy could hardly be cleaner or more beautiful.. 277 x 215 mm. (11 x 8 1/2"). Two volumes. Second Edition, corrected. Attractive period-style calf by Courtland Benson, raised bands, spine gilt in compartments, two morocco labels, all edges gilt.

         The Stranger in Ireland; or, a Tour in the Southern and Western Parts of that Country, in the year 1805.

Carr, a popular travel writer of the period, states in his preface, "I have endeavoured to illustrate the Irish character, and to give a descriptive tour into the south and south-west parts of Ireland, and also some account of the present state of society, political economy, national manners, public buildings, &c. of that country. I have as much as possible avoided adverting to those points upon which public opinion has divided with temper .... [except] when they were connected with the paramount objects of humanity and general policy". Carr began with several chapters on Dublin and then moved on to Wicklow, Kildare, Limerick, Killarney, Cork, and Kilkenny. Much interesting comment on the people, the economy, and the countryside.

         SOUTH AFRICA – MANUSCRIPT MAP OF THE BATTLE OF BLAAUWBERG (1806): [UNTITLED MANUSCRIPT MAP OF THE TABLE BAY AREA DEPICTING THE MILITARY ACTION SURROUNDING THE BATTLE OF BLAAUWBERG (1806)].

      Manuscript, pen and ink and watercolour on woven paper (Very Good, bright original colours, crisp contemporary vertical folds), 23.5 x 36.5 cm (9 x 14.5 inches). - [Cape Town area, South Africa, 10-13 January 1806]. Of profound historical importance - an original manuscript thought to be the earliest map of the Battle of Blaauwberg (1806), the most consequential single military event in the history of South Africa, whereby Britain conquered the Cape Colony from the Netherlands; the map commissioned by General David Baird, the supreme commander of the invasion, finely drafted by the military engineer Lieutenant Henry Smart, enclosed within Baird’s (now lost) despatch to London reporting on the battle. This finely drafted manuscript map is of profound historical importance, as it is thought to be the earliest map of the Battle of Blaauwberg (January 8, 1806), the most important single military event in the history of South Africa, and a watershed moment in the course of the British Empire. The battle resulted in Britain’s conquest of the Cape Colony from the Netherlands; such that the Cape would remain a British possession for the next century. The map is confidently attributed to the military engineer Lieutenant Henry Smart, and was drafted between January 10 and 13, 1806, on the orders of Brigadier General David Baird (the supreme commander of the invasion), who included the map within his important (but now lost) despatch to London reporting on the battle. In July 1805, Whitehall dispatched an army of 6,500 troops under General Baird, carried by a fleet of 60 ships, commanded by Commodore Home Popham, to capture the Cape Colony, which was then ruled by the Batavian Republic, the Dutch client state of Napoleon Bonaparte’s France (and Britain’s mortal nemesis). The British action was motivated by an imperative to stop Napoleon’s design to turn the Cape into an impregnable base form which he could sever Britain’s ties with India and the Far East. However, the British juggernaut would not arrive at the Cape until the beginning of the following year. The Henry Smart Blaauwberg Map in Focus - The present map is thought to be the earliest map of the Battle of Blaauwberg. In the immediate wake of the battle, General David Baird, the victor of the altercation, was preparing his initial account of the battle to be sent as a despatch to London. He initially ordered his chief engineer, Captain James Michael Smythe, to draft a map illustrating the battle, to be included with the despatch. However, Smythe soon became preoccupied with other duties, and so handed the task off to his deputy, Lieutenant Henry Smart. . SEE OUR WEB PAGE FOR LONGER DESCRIPTION.

         BUENOS AIRES – BRITISH INVASIONS OF THE RÍO DE LA PLATA (1806-7) – MANUSCRIPT MAP & PORTRAIT COLLECTION: A FINE COLLECTION RELATING TO THE BRITISH INVASION OF THE RÍO DE LA PLATA (1806-7), HIGHLIGHTED BY AN ORIGINAL CONTEMPORARY MANUSCRIPT MAP OF THE SECO

      - Presented here is a fine collection relating to the British Invasions of the Río De La Plata (1806-7), highlighted by an original contemporary manuscript map of the Second Battle of Buenos Aires (July-August 1807); also featuring seven portraits of British generals commanding the expeditions, plus one small printed map of the region. All of these items were apparently assembled into an album, perhaps during the 1840s. The anonymous manuscript map, "Battle Plan of the Attack on Buenos Ayres July 5, 1807." (circa 1807-8) is importantly one of only very few surviving contemporary manuscript maps of the Second British Attack upon Buenos Aires, a seminal event in Argentine history, and a major international aspect of the ongoing Napoleonic Wars. While a sketch map of relatively small size, as opposed to a finally drafted, formal composition, it nevertheless features all seminal aspects of the multi-pronged British operation against the city. The victory of the Spanish-Argentine forces against what was supposed to be a British juggernaut was a major shock to Whitehall, discouraging further British invasions of Latin America. Regionally, it was one of the catalysts of the Argentine Independence movement. [MAP – SECOND BATTLE OF BUENOS AIRES:] "Battle Plan of the Attack on Buenos Ayres July 5, 1807." [n.p., circa 1807 - 1808]. Manuscript, pen and ink and watercolour on laid, watermarked paper (Very Good, clean and bright, soft old vertical centerfold, unidentified partial watermark), 13.3 x 20.8 cm (5.2 x 8.2 inches). An original manuscript sketch map of the Second Battle of Buenos Aires (1807), although small, it features all major details of the action; likely made by a British participant in the operation; one of only a small number of known surviving contemporary manuscript maps of the battle. This original contemporary manuscript sketch map depicts the action of the Second Battle of Buenos Aires (July 4-5, 1807), being the bungled British attack upon the city. Importantly, the map is one of only a small number of known contemporary manuscript maps of the event. The map, likely made shortly after the battle by an anonymous British officer, is a somewhat crude, yet attractive and brightly coloured. Importantly, in spite of its diminutive size, it is quite detailed, showcasing all major aspects of the operation. The map even has a scale, of 1500 yards (upper right). The map focuses on the City of Buenos Aires, the urban areas of which are represented by a light orange block, while major edifices and locations are outlined in dark orange, nine of which are identified by letters (A – I) explained in the key (upper left): "A. Cathedral"; "B. St. Domingo’s Church" (Convento de Santo Domingo); "C. Residentia" (Iglesia y Residencia Jesuítica de Nuestra Señora de Belén); "D. Mole"; "E. St. Francisco" (Basílica y Convento de San Francisco); "F. Fort"; "G. Catlilina Convent" (Monasterio de Santa Catalina); "H. Place of Reembarkation"; and "I. Great Square". Other key marked locations include the "Almaza de Palaora"; "Plaza de los Toros" (Bull Ring); and the "Las Recolletas" (Monasterio de la Recoleta). On June 15, 1807, the British flotilla arrived off of Buenos Aires, having sailed from Montevideo, carrying a force of 8,000 well-armed professionals soldiers. Their orders were to take the city and avenge the humiliating British defeat of the previous year. The British force far outnumbered the regulars defending Buenos Aires and, in theory, the mission should have been short work. However, Lieutenant-General John Whitelocke, the commander of the expedition, although a highly regarded military administrator, had scant combat experience, and virtually no firsthand knowledge of urban warfare. Whitelocke dithered, allowing Buenos Aires’ defenders, under Santiago de Liners, to organize. The city’s mayor, Martín de Álzaga, rallied the citizens to dig trenches, fortify buildings, erect barricades, and stock up on provisions. Had Whitelocke stuck qu

George, BM Satires 10610 (uncoloured), with number 108 printed in the upper right corner indicating a slightly later reissue. George notes that the election caricatured in this print was either November 1806 or May 1807 but suggests that the earlier date is more likely. A burlesque election scene, most of the figures having large grotesque heads. The hustings is indicated by a rail behind which stand the candidate and three of his supporters. One of the latter, next to the silent candidate, addresses the people below: ?I have now Gentlemen the honor to propose to you my friend next me Solomon Sheepface Esqr of Sheepface Hall, you are all well acquainted with his disposition, he is so harmless he would not hurt a Worm, - once elected he will say Aye or No just as the occasion may require.? The candidate has an expression of bewildered melancholy. Five men form the audience, one shouts ?No Sheepface?; another waves his hat, shouting, ?Sheepface for ever Huzza? On the left. two men gaze at a large election poster on a wall: ?To the Worthy and Independent Electors of the Borough of Long Heads Gentlemen your Votes and Interest in favor of Solomon Sheepface? A little boy picks the pocket of one of the gazers. In the middle a ragged ballad-seller bawls to an audience of three boys: ?The same is entitled and called No Bribery, a new Song, to an Old tune.? In the background a crowd is faintly indicated. PLEASE NOTE: For customers within the UK and the EU, this item is subject to VAT.

      - Göttingen, J. F. Röwer, 1806. 8vo. X, 482 S. Pappband d. Zeit mit Rückenschild (beschabt u. bestoßen). Erste Ausgabe. - Das grundlegende Werk der Herbartschen Pädagogik. Als Philosoph steht Herbart bis heute im Schatten des deutschen Idealismus, dessen spekulative Methode er scharf kritisiert hat. Von grundlegender Bedeutung ist er dagegen bis heute mit seiner Forderung, die Pädagogik müsse sich auf "einheimische" Begriffe besinnen. Ausgehend von dieser Forderung wurde er einer der einflussreichsten Begründer der Pädagogik als selbständiger Wissenschaft. Der Grundbegriff seiner Pädagogik ist die "alle einseitigen Freiheits- und endogenen wie exogenen Determinationslehren negierende dem Menschen eigene 'Bildsamkeit'. Der Mensch ist eine offene, personale und individuelle Ganzheit von epochal und inhaltlich gebundenen Fähigkeiten. Ihn zu sittlicher Selbstbestimmung zu befähigen ist die Aufgabe der Erziehung" (W. Asmus in NDB 8, 574). - Das vorliegende Exemplar wie meist ohne die 2 Bl. Verlagsanzeigen am Schluß gebunden. - Gebräunt u. stockfleckig. Vorsätze mit kl. Sammlerstempel. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         The Antiquities of the Anglo-Saxon Church.

      Newcastle: Printed by Edward Walker; Keating, Brown, and Keating, London, , 1806. 2 volumes, octavo (211 x 126 mm). Contemporary calf, smooth spines, gilt in compartments, green morocco labels, gilt roll to board edges. Wood-engraved title vignettes by Thomas Bewick, engraved folding map hand-coloured in outline. Headcap of vol. 1 worn, just exposing headband, spines lightly rubbed, front joint of vol. 1 tender, occasional light foxing, still very good, a pleasing set. First edition. John Lingard (1771-1851) was an English Catholic priest, historian, and commentator on Catholic life in the 19th century. Best known for his eight-volume History of England (London, 1819-30), Lingard was one of the final students of the English College in Douai, northern France and wrote a number of works of history and theology. The Antiquities of the Anglo-Saxon Church was his first work and in this Lingard asserted the catholicity of the Anglo-Saxon church in opposition to the prevailing protestant depiction of an independent English church in this era. With the 20th-century bookplates of Robin Lingard, presumably a descendant of the author.

        A Set of Six Aracaris.

      Paris 1806 - Colour-printed stipple engravings, finished by hand. Dimensions of the plate: approx. 52 x 34 cm. Overall size: 63.5 by 45.5cm - framed and glazed. A fine set of these beautiful plates, from a "magnificent work" (Wood) and one of the most comprehensive on exotic birds - the first edition of the 'Histoire naturelle des oiseaux de paradis et des rolliers, suivie de celle des toucans et des barbus' by Levaillant. Jacques Barraband was the finest ornithological artist of his time. The son of a weaver at the Aubusson Factory, he is first mentioned as a pupil of Joseph Malaine (1745-1809), the eminent flower painter, and is known to have worked for both the Gobelin Factory and the porcelain factory of Sèvres. His most important work was undoubtedly the 300 or so drawings that he produced for François Levaillant's three great ornithological monographs, including the present one.
