CARTWRIGHT, CHARLES:
An Abstract of the Orders and Regulations of the Honourable Court of Directors of the East-India Company, and of other documents relating to the Pains and Penalties the Commanders and Officers of Ships in the Company's service are liable to, for breach of orders, illicit trade, &c. + An Appendix, ... and a list of the duties payable to the King on all goods imported from the East-Indies and China. No place (London 1788).
. Pp. (viii), lxxx, appendix 56. Occasional minor spotting, one small marginal wormhole repaired. Modern green morocco, ruled in gilt, spine lettered in gilt. First edition.A manual for East India Company officers, mainly focused on their private trade compiled by Cartwright, the Deputy Accountant-General. The extent of the Abstract suggests a remarkable range of illicit commerce. The attached list of duties to be paid on imported goods from the East Indies and China includes arrack, coffee, elephants' teeth, various fabrics, dragon's blood, tea, rum, etc. Officers are reminded not to land goods on Sark, Jersey, or Ireland. An order prohibiting dockers from entering ships' holds suggests a recognised route for smuggled cargo. The numerous notes regulating bullion and bills of exchange indicate yet another area of illegitimate activity. Commanders are reminded that passengers, unless authorised by appropriate Company officials, or members of the ships' company, are prohibited, with details of charges depending on nationality. Scarce.
