14 COLQUHOUN, P A TREATISE ON THE POLICE OF THE METROPOLIS; containing a detail of the Various Crimes and Misdemeanors by which Public and Private Property and Security are, at present injured and endangered and Suggesting Remedies for their Prevention.
London Joseph Mawman in the Poultry successor to Mr Dilly. 1800 6th corrected and enlarged hardcover GOOD no dj 8vo 
7pp prelims. + xvi Contents + 655pp +Index. BOUND in original publisher's marbled boards, rather worn and rear board detached. Edges uncut and browned. Scattered foxing but pages not affected too badly. Top of front endpaper neatly trimmed. Incription inside cover reads 'Given to me by Mr Dilly. March 1800. John Patterson'. Mr Dilly was a London bookseller for whom some editions of this work were printed. Although a little worse for wear on the covers, this is still a good copy of a hard-to-find edition. First published in 1796 the object was to suggest means for the prevention of crimes so that punishments would seldom be necessary. The author received little credit during his own lifetime and it was not until 1829, some nine years after his death, that his proposals received some practical acceptance and adoption. Chapters include such subjects as Propositions for Improving Public Houses; Receivers of the Metropolis; Burglary and Highway Robbery; Frauds, Forgeries and Offences of Cheating; Punishments, Transportation, the Hulks etc. This is widely accepted to be the best and most detailed edition of the classic work.
