    Military miscellany; comprehending a history of the recruiting of the Army, military punishments, &c. &c. by MARSHALL, Henry

    London: John Murray. 1846. 8vo., (8) + 375 + (1)pp., followed by 12pp. of publisher's advertisements, original red cloth embossed in blind, spine gilt lettered and neatly restored. A very good presentation copy inscribed and signed by the author> on front free endpaper. First edition. A particularly useful review by Henry Marshall (1775-1851), the military surgeon and Deputy Inspector General of Army hospitals. By far the greatest part of this review (i.e. pp.115-316] is devoted to military punishments and it makes pretty harrowing reading. 'Marshall was instrumental in improving the conditions of the soldier both in service and in retirement. He campaigned for shorter service, better general and sanitary education of the troops, and the reduction of brutal punishments such as flogging and branding. His work in this area gained widespread attention in 1847, when a soldier died from injuries received as a result of whipping. Marshall was not just a medical reformer, but an army reformer. In 1847 he received an honorary MD degree from the University of the State of New York. He contributed regularly to the Edinburgh Medical and Surgical Journal> and the United Service Journal.> He died in Edinburgh after a prolonged illness on 5 May 1851, and was buried in Dean cemetery, Edinburgh.' [George Stronach, rev. Claire E. J. Herrick in ODNB]. Other subjects covered here by Marshall are recruiting, enlistment, 'physical and moral qualities of recruits', duration of engagement, suicide, 'vices and virtues of soldiers', education, 'urbanity to soldiers', pensioning of soldiers, numerical statistics of the Army from 1814 to 1839, and [pp. 353-375] punishments in the Navy.

    An account of the principal lazarettos in Europe; with various papers relative to the plague: together with further observations on some foreign prisons and hospitals; and additional remarks on the present state of those in Great Britain and Ireland. by HOWARD, John

    Warrington, printed by William Eyres; and sold by T. Cadell, J. Johnson, C. Dilly, and J. Taylor, in London. 1789. 4to., with 22 engraved plates (of which 20 are folding) and one very large engraved folding table, viii + 259 + (15)pp., wanting the half-title, with a short closed tear in title but no loss, the title leaf laid down, bound in full contemporary maroon russia with gilt rules, sometime rebacked to match, spine gilt and lettered with the near-contemporary armorial bookplate of Robert Fellowes> (1770-1847), the rich philanthropist and sometime editor of the Critical Review.> An excellent presentation copy inscribed by Howard on the fly leaf ('the gift of Mr. Howard>'), and with a 10-line autograph note tipped in, written and signed by Howard on May 20, 1789, presenting this copy to Fellowes commenting that 'With pleasure I send over one of the two remaining copies of my last edit[ion] on \prisons - I left at Mr. Johnsons for Mr Fellowes by publication on Lazarettos. - I read little on the subject of the plague, as I wish to draw my inferences from close observation on the disorder itself, and those not from the theories of persons who have never visited patients in that ------- (?) and indeed my present opinion of it is different from any I have yet found in books .....'. First edition. This was a sequel to Howard's iconic work on prisons (Warrington, 1777). 'Shortly after Howard had visited his first prisons in the winter of 1773 he became interested in other public institutions and began to investigate bridewells, hospitals, and lazarettos. He soon became aware of the various medical and public health problems which are indigenous in such institutions. As he says in the introduction to the Lazarettos>: 'In my latest tours, I had with pain observed, that notwithstanding the regulations which had been made in our country, and elsewhere, for preserving health in prisons and hospitals, yet that infectious diseases continued occasionally to arise and spread in them. I had also been led, by the view of several lazarettos in my travels, to consider how much all trading nations are exposed to that dreadful scourge of mankind [plague] ....'. He had recorded in the 1784 edition of The state of the prisons> a wish 'that some future traveller would give us plans of this lazaretto [Leghorn], and that at Ancona and other places.' The following year he sailed abroad to do the job himself. The plans and careful notes on the management and personnel of the various institutions he visited constitute the bulk of the Lazarettos.> [Baumgartner p.33].
