Darien.: An Act to Settle the Trade to Africa. London, Printed by Charles Bill, and the executrix of Thomas Newcomb, diseas'd, 1698. Folio, title + 17 pp., black letter, age-browned, disbound. In 1663 the English government granted the Company of Royal Adventurers Trading to Africa a monopoly in the slave trade. The Company collapsed in 1667 but from the ashes emerged the Royal African Company which in 1672 was granted a similar monopoly. Rival English merchants, unhappy with this situation, petitioned Parliament which in 1698 opened the trade to all. Other seafaring nations were equally anxious to reap the benefits of this lucrative trade and it was in order to maintain the castles and forts of the Royal African Company as a defence against any such threat that the above Act was introduced, requiring all vessels trading from England or the American Colonies to the coast of Africa between Capoe Blancho and Cape Mount to pay duty of 10% of their cargo value towards the upkeep of these defences. It was the restrictive nature of such acts which encouraged Scottish merchants to seek, in the establishment of a colony at Darien, a new market for their produce. £200

Ellenborough, Right Hon. Lord.: The Guilt of Lord Cochrane in 1814 a criticism. London, Smith, Elder & Co., 1914. First edition. 8vo, pp.xxiv, 322, [6], blue cloth gilt, vg. A spirited defence of the author's grandfather who presided over the trial of Lord Cochrane in what came to be known as the Stock Exchange Fraud of 1814. The controversial conviction, on largely circumstantial evidence, of Thomas Cochrane, 10th Earl of Dundonald (1775 - 1860), which led to his dismissal from the Royal Navy, gave rise to accusations that Lord Ellenborough, a High Tory, had been prejudiced against him because of his radical views. Cochrane was re-instated in 1832 with the rank of Rear Admiral of the Blue but the antagonism betwixt the two families persisted as evidenced in this riposte to a re-issue in 1890 of what purported to be Cochrane's Autobiography of a Seaman but was actually written by George Earp. £30

Encyclopaedia Perthensis; or, Universal Dictionary of the Arts, Sciences, Literature, &c.: intended to supersede the use of other books of reference. 23 vols. Edinburgh: Printed by John Brown, Anchor Close, for the Proprietors [C. Mitchel and Co.], 1816. Second edition. Large 8vo, half titles, allegorical frontispiece, 356 plates, 20 folding maps, sporadic worm traces, mostly pinhole, to some gatherings but with the loss of 2 or 3 letters in others albeit with no impediment to sense; marbled endpapers, contemporary calf rubbed; some volumes with head / toecaps restored and / or hinges strengthened, and some with splits to joints; flat spines, red and black morocco labels, gilt, admonitory verse bookplate of I. Wilson printed by Read, Haslingden. The Directions for Placing the Plates leaf, presumably replicated from the first edition, calls for a frontispiece plus 348 plates which does not include in the total six instances where plates exist as examples 1 and 2. This second edition has all of the foregoing plus 2 further plates numbered 349 and 350, including the early view of Washington, D.C., as well as the maps. "The history of the inception and production of the Encyclopaedia Perthensis is known only in bare outline, but there can be no doubt but that it was the dream of William Morison's youth. The thought that he would produce this magnum opus of the Morison Press had come to him like an inspiration, and he at once proceeds to work it out.... This great work, perhaps the most wonderful which has ever been produced and published in a provincial town....is in truth an extraordinary production for the time. Never had there been such a work published in Perth, and we are free to say there never shall be another like it." (D. Crawford Smith, The Historians of Perth). The work, commenced in 1796 under the editorship of Alexander Aitchison, was originally published in monthly parts costing 6s but did not proceed as regularly as the publishers had hoped and by 1802 was behind schedule with the cost of a monthly part raised to 7s as the result of the increased tax on paper of March 1801. While there is little evidence to support the claim made by some that William Morison was the real editor there can be no questioning that he was the driving force behind the venture. Tragically, his death on 22nd July 1806 at the age of just twenty-six - possibly from overwork - came only months before the work was advertised as complete on 5th September. When finally completed in 23 volumes the work cost 15 guineas in boards and must have sold well enough to encourage the proprietors to embark on a new edition which was advertised early in 1807 and duly appeared in 1816, though printed in Edinburgh. The grandiose claim made on the title pages and repeated in the preface that the Perthensis would supersede all other encyclopaedias was to prove ill-founded but it did serve as the basis for the first American encyclopaedia, the New and Complete American Encyclopaedia, before the expanded Britannica swept all before it. £1800

Erskine, John, The Honourable Colonel, of Carnock.: Journal. 18th century manuscript transcription of Erskine's Journal for the period from June 5th 1683 to May 26th 1685. Closely written in a uniform clear hand on the rectos and versos of 100 + leaves, 6 x 4 inches, of a small oblong pocket-notebook, half calf, marbled boards. Not published until the Scottish History Society edition of 1893, the Journal gives a detailed account of the period between the Restoration and the Revolution when, as the Rev. Walter Macleod remarks in his introduction to that edition, "Charles 11, like his father and grandfather, was not content with the inherited title of "Defender of the Faith", but claimed also the high prerogative of defining the faith, and then thrusting it by sheer force upon his unwilling subjects." As an aspirant to the Bar, Erskine was enabled to attend the courts where those apprehended in the aftermath of Bothwell Bridge were tried and there are frequent references in the Journal to executions, banishments and trials, notably those of Gordon of Earlston, Campbell of Cessnock, Baillie of Jarviswood and Mr. John Dick, student of divinity, whom he accompanied to the scaffold and whose remains he helped to carry to the grave. Typical of such entries is this from 1684 : "25th July last. Mr Will Spens sometime Argyles Secretary was put in the boots & received many strokes till his leg was quite crushed...having yet discovered nothing he was taken...to the Canongate...& set upon a form where he had nothing to lean on the soldiers being commanded to keep him from sleep which they did till Saturday the 2nd August." The Journal covers the period 5th June 1683 - January 1687 and was, according to Macleod, "written, for the most part, in two small oblong pocket-notebooks and completed in a small square one the greater part of which is left blank." £1500

These misgivings were confirmed when, on their visit to Skye, they were informed that the work had in fact been written by Dr. John M'Pherson, minister of Sleat, from materials collected by Macaulay on his visit to St. Kilda in 1758.

Monson stood trial on the double charge of attempting to murder and murdering Windsor Dudley Cecil Hambrough at Ardlamont , Argyllshire. Monson had originally been engaged as tutor to Cecil, then aged 17, until he should pass into the army, but relations between him and the boy's father deteriorated. When Cecil was killed in a shooting accident whilst out with Manson and another man, Scott, there seemed no grounds for suspicion but when applicartion was made for payment of two insurance policies taken out on Cecil's life and assigned to Mrs. Monson proceedings were commenced against Monson. Despite vigorous efforts by Monson's defence team to trace Scott he was never found and the jury's verdict of "not proven" did nothing to dispel the speculation surrounding the case. £30

Bookplate of Frederick W. B. Coleman. The Preface appears here for the first time. Born in Ayr in 1686, the son of a baker, Ramsay spent most of his life in France and in 1710 was converted to Catholicism by Fenelon.

This book proved to be one of the most successful works published in the 18th century and was translated into German, Italian, Spanish and Greek before the end of the century.

London: Printed for the Corporation by Johnston and Barrett, Mark Lane, 1838. 8vo, pp.50, pink wrappers stitched, leaching to covers, edges and preliminaries but otherwise a good copy. After the accession of James I in 1603 a need arose " for relieving the less fortunate individuals of the Scottish nation" resident in London and the Society thus formed became known as the Scottish Box. After the charters of Charles II the first hospital was built which acted as a charity workhouse, first in Westminster and later in Crane Court, Fleet Street. Outdoor relief tended to become more significant from an early period and after the sale of the hospital and tenements to the City in 1874, poor Scots were helped in their own homes, while funds were always available to repatriate any Scots who desired to return to their native land. The foundation still exists to assist Scots living within a thirty mile radius of London and is now known as The Royal Scottish Corporation, or more popularly as ScotsCare. This 1838 list of supporters includes many wealthy Scots who donated funds for the support of their poorer compatriots, but a significant number of non-Scots are also listed including the King of Belgium, the Archbishop of Canterbury, and the Duke of Wellington. £40

Glasgow and Edinburgh, William Hodge & Company, Notable Scottish Trials Series, 1906, 1st ed. 8vo, pp.248, 12 plates, light fore-edge foxing, green cloth gilt. Chantrelle, a French-born schoolmaster, obtained a post at a private Edinburgh school, Newington Abbey, where he formed a relationship with a 15-year old pupil, Elizabeth Cullen Dyer, whom he married in 1868 when she was 16. The first of their four children was born two months later. Chantrelle proved an abusive, bullying husband who frequently threatened to poison his wife. On New Year's Day, 1878, Elizabeth became unwell and a servant girl, given the day off, returned next morning to find her mistress unconscious. When summoned, Chantrelle asked her if she could smell gas, which she could not, but later that day there was a smell of gas and she turned it off at the meter. Elizabeth died later that day in the Royal Infirmary but despite suggestions that coal gas poisoning was the cause, Professor MacLagan concluded that there were signs of narcotic poisoning. The subsequent post mortem found no trace of narcotic poisoning but it did show that Elizabeth had not died of gas poisoning. The servant girl testified that she had seen vomit on her mistress's nightdress and examination of this revealed traces of opium. Chantrelle was charged with murder and despite some disquiet about the absence of poison in the body was found guilty and hanged at the Calton prison on 31st May, 1878. £35

First edition. 8vo, in 4's, pp.xv, [i], 60, half-title and terminal advertisements discarded, title lightly dust-soiled, disbound. ESTC T3241. Elizabeth Gunning (1769 - 1823), daughter of the novelist Susannah Gunning and Lieutenant-General John Gunning, found herself at the centre of a scandal which titillated contemporary society and gave rise to a host of satires and cartoons. Her simultaneous encouragement of the attentions of the Marquis of Blanford, heir to the Duke of Marlborough (favoured by her mother), and the Marquis of Lorne, heir to the Duke of Argyll, was brought to an abrupt end when her father wrote to the Duke of Marlborough inquiring into the Marquis's intentions. A letter was returned indicating that Blanford had changed his mind but this was later held to be a forgery, presumably by Miss Gunning. When a Mrs. Bowen passed to the General some letters in which his daughter declared her love for Lorne, he turned her out of the house, with her mother following. In March, 1791 Mrs. Gunning issued a "Letter ...addressed to His Grace the Duke of Argyll" declaring the letters a forgery by Mrs. Bowen and her husband Captain Essex Bowen. Captain Bowen sought legal redress and in the following April published the present pamphlet stating that though he "never aspired to become an author, much less to enter into a literary dispute with a lady" he is compelled to defend himself when "that Lady so far forgets herself as to vilify and traduce me in the coarsest language." £90
