        Two early items associated with the Bank of South Australia are offered together. (1) A manuscript personal promissory note (90 x 167 mm) dated Adelaide, 24 October 1840 - 'Three months after date pay to my order Thirty Pounds value received. F.W. Allen. To C.W. Stuart Esqre'. Stuart has written across it 'Accepted Payable at the Bank of South Australia'. It was subsequently stamped by the Bank of South Australia, Adelaide when it was paid on 27 January 1841. The verso is endorsed by F.W. Allen, C. Crispe and 'For the Bank of South Australia Edwd Stephens Manager'. Apart from two vertical creases and a tiny spike hole, it is in fine condition. (2) A printed Bank of South Australia cheque (80 x 180 mm, printed by Batho and Bingley, London) with manuscript insertions - 11 February 1841, from C.W. Stuart to Harry Lechahdee[?] for 3 pounds. A bank stamp on it indicates it was paid out in Adelaide on 15 February 1841. It is endorsed on the verso by Robert Champlay, an indecipherable signat

      Edward Stephens (1811-1861) was appointed cashier and accountant of the South Australian Company in 1836; he arrived in the 'Coromandel' on 17 January 1837 at Holdfast Bay. 'There he set up his office in a tent but at first business was slight. He was induced to sign a letter to Governor [Sir] John Hindmarsh asking for a public meeting to reconsider the site of Adelaide. Although in February the meeting decided in favour of Colonel William Light's choice Stephens did not hesitate to buy eight city acres [3.2 ha] when they were auctioned, and later became very friendly with Light. Stephens fell foul of Hindmarsh and was rebuked by George Fife Angas for dabbling in politics' (Australian Dictionary of Biography). In 1840 he became the Adelaide manager of the Bank of South Australia. Charles William Stuart (~1811-1891) arrived in the colony in 1836, and became Acting Police Commissioner during Alexander Tolmer's extended absences on overland gold escort duties in 1852-53. Tolmer's dismissal in November 1853 was in part due to his involvement 'in demeaning disputes with his subordinates', not least Stuart. Frederick William Allen (1813-1850) arrived on the 'Buffalo' and became a publican. Clement Crispe (~1804-1857) arrived in 1837 on the 'John Renwick' and was a butcher and farmer. Robert Champlay was married in Adelaide on 30 January 1840. (Most of the biographical details have come from the 'Biographical Index of South Australians, 1836-1885'). We have not yet traced Harry - there are some intriguing possibilities.

        The Royal Military Chronicle Or British Officers Monthly Register And Mentor, 1810-1813. In good condition for a periodical often found in poor shape.

      J. Davis, London 1811 - Six royal octavo volumes bound in contemporary tree calf with twin black leather labels to each volume. The calf is rather rubbed and worn and some joints are cracking but firm - a good set replete with plans, portraits and maps. This periodical is an important source for obituary notices, biographies, letters from various theatres of war and copies of bulletins, technical treatises etc. This set comes from the library of Sir Watkin Williams-Wynn of Wynnstay, Denbighshire with his signature on the front paste-down of Volume I and engraved armorial bookplate in all volumes. This periodical runs to ten volumes and is now difficult to find as either a complete set or a decent run. It is, sadly, cursed by the lack of an index. Extra postal rate will apply.

        Essai politique sur le royaume de la Nouvelle-Espagne

      F. Schoell, Paris 1811 - 3 volumes: 2 volumes text, 4to., (13 4/8 x 10 inches); and atlas volume, folio (22 x 16 inches). Half-titles in each volume. With the dedication leaf and 4-page dedication to Charles IV. 21 engraved maps, profiles, views, and charts on 19 sheets, four hand- colored (some intermittent pale spotting.) Modern tan calf-backed black marbled paper boards, spines gilt, by Atelier Laurenchet. Provenance: Bookplates of Jay T. Snider, Collection of Historical Americana. First edition, a very rare variant. Yale has a copy of the true first edition with an 1808 title-page and the dedication leaf to Charles IV. The present copy is dated 1811 in the text volumes, but is actually made up of the text as printed in 1808, including the suppressed dedication leaf to Charles IV of Spain. This copy, with the same format and pagination but with the suppressed dedication, shows that the 1811 edition was actually made from the sheets of the 1808 printing, with the dedication removed and the 1811 titles inserted. This edition has generally been overlooked by bibliographers (although Thomas Streeter correctly described the accompanying atlas and surmised this text might exist), the 1809-1814 Tübingen edition generally described as the first. Evidently published in the spring of 1808, the present edition is markedly different in text from that which began to appear the next year. It was suppressed, probably by Humboldt himself. He dedicated the work to Charles IV of Spain, who had allowed him to travel freely through the Spanish colonies. Almost concurrently with the book's publication, Napoleon invaded Spain and deposed Charles, installing his own brother, Joseph Bonaparte, on the Spanish throne. Already under suspicion as a Prussian spy and only allowed to remain in Paris through the intercession of his scientific friends, Humboldt's dedication to the abdicated monarch might have sealed his fate. He may also have had second thoughts about the scope of the work, as the Tübingen edition is greatly enlarged. In 1799 Alexander von Humboldt went to Spain and received from the king permission to visit and make scientific investigations in all the Spanish possessions in Europe, America, with privileges never before granted to any traveller. From 1799 to 1804, Humboldt was accompanied by the French botanist Aimé Bonpland, and together they made observations on geology, geography, zoology, botany and the political and social character of the regions. His exploration of Orinoco River was the first to furnish any positive knowledge of that river. In 1802, in exploring the volcanoes of Ecuador, he ascended heights that had not previously been attained, and on Chimborazo reached the altitude of 19,286 feet. Afterward he made a profile of Mexico from sea to sea--this was the first profile ever given of an entire country. After his return to Paris, and over a period of about two decades, Humboldt undertook to publish the results of his study in the monumental 29-volume "Voyage aux regions equinoxiales du Nouveau Continent". The present work is the third part of this series, consisting of two text volumes and an atlas of maps relating to New Spain, including much of present-day southwestern United States. This comprised the first scientific description of the American Southwest and includes a wealth of new information on California and Texas. The atlas includes plates on volcanoes, land profiles, a map of the southern part of North America, maps of Mexico and many of its parts, and most importantly, Humboldt's two-sheet "Carte Generale du Royaume de la Nouvelle Espagne." This map contained the most up-to-date geographic depiction of Texas, California and the rest of Mexico, and it became the prototype rendering for much of the region for the next several decades. Carl Wheat called the map a "truly magnificent cartographic achievement."

        Ansicht von Prag. Den Mitgliedern des Kunstvereins für Böhmen im Jahre 1857. Pohled na Prahu. .

      Artist: Haushofer Maximilian Joseph ( - 1866) Munich; issued in: Prag; date: ca 1857 1811 - - technic: Colored Lithography; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Tears perfectly restored; - size (in cm): 47 x 65,5; - description: Very decorative and big view of the city of Prag at the river Moldau. In the foreground, some people sitting at the field, in the background the city.In 1618, the famous second defenestration of Prague provoked the Thirty Years' War, a particularly harsh period for Prague and Bohemia. Ferdinand II of Habsburg was deposed, and his place as King of Bohemia taken by Frederick V, Elector Palatine, however the Czech Army under him was crushed in the Battle of White Mountain (1620) not far from the city. Following this in 1621 was an execution of 27 Czech leaders (involved in the uprising) in Old Town Square and the exiling of many others. The city suffered subsequently during the war under Saxon (1631) and Battle of Prague (1648)._Prague began a steady decline which reduced the population from the 60,000 it had had in the years before the war to 20,000. In the second half of the 17th century Prague's population began to grow again. Jews have been in Prague since the end of the 10th century and, by 1708, they accounted for about a quarter of Prague's population; -vita of the artist: After and original painting of Maximilian Joseph Haushofer, born in 1811 in Nymphenburg near Munich. He was a german landscape painter and Professor at the Academie of art in Prag.

Rare.Monglond VII-col. 478 à 491.Aubin-Louis Millin est né à Paris en 1759. C’est "l’un des plus grands archéologues de la période. Conservateur du Museum des Antiquités à la Bibliothèque Nationale en 1794, membre de l’Institut en 1806 [ ]." (Tulard, Dict. Napoléon, p. 1174)."Très intéressante description, non seulement du Midi de la France, mais de la Bourgogne, du Lyonnais, de l’Angoumois, etc. Cette description pittoresque, archéologique et historique est faite sur les lieux mêmes. [ ] L’atlas [ ] est composé de 83 planches d’un haut intérêt archéologique (vues d’anciens monuments, détails d’ornementations, anciennes peintures, vitraux, costumes, etc., etc.). Embrasse à la fois l’antiquité, le moyen âge et la France moderne. Donne la description de choses maintenant disparues." (Dorbon IV-31230)."Après avoir songé longuement d’un Voyage en Provence, avoir vu, plusieurs années, l’occasion échapper, le Conservateur du Cabinet des Antiquités obtenait enfin de Chaptal, ministre de l’Intérieur, un congé jusqu’à l’automne et la mission spéciale de procurer à la Bibliothèque des manuscrits et des médailles, soit par des acquisitions, soit par des échanges. Millin quitte Paris le 14 avril 1804, pour n’y rentrer que le 17 octobre, six mois et cinq jours après son départ. Winckler, attaché au Cabinet des Antiques, l’accompagnait. Par Dijon, Lyon, la vallée du Rhône, il gagne la Provence, la parcourt en tous sens, pousse jusqu’à Gap, pour revenir par Nîmes, Montpellier, Toulouse, les Pyrénées, Bordeaux, Angoulême, La Rochelle, Poitiers, Tours, Blois, Orléans.La correspondance inédite de Millin nous permet de le suivre presque jour par jour. Il reconnaît lui-même que, çà et là, pour agrémenter ou simplifier son récit, il a pris la liberté d’arranger les choses. "Tout voyageur est un peu menteur", écrira-t-il, le 4 septembre 1806 à Fauris de Saint-Vincens. [ ]Le voyage de Millin a joué son rôle dans la découverte de la Provence.Quand Michelet, en 1833, dans le Tableau de la France, entreprend de peindre la Provence, qu’il n’avait pas encore visitée (mais de la fin mars à la fin avril 1830 il avait vu l’Italie jusqu’à Rome en passant par Florence), le Voyage de Millin est sa source essentielle, et les notes du Tableau en témoignent généreusement.Dans ses Mémoires d’un touriste (1838), Stendhal pille Millin sans vergogne, et, pour mieux dissimuler ses larcins, ne laisse passer aucune occasion de l’injurier. [ ] Mais, à la différence de tel de ses scoliastes, il comprend ce qu’il lit et en tire souvent très bon parti.On sait avec quel soin Millin décrit (t. II, pp. 302-328) la procession de la Fête-Dieu à Aix, à laquelle sera consacré le chant X de Calendal (1867).Enfin le parisien Millin est le précurseur sérieux de ces romanciers dont Edouard Aude, familier de Mistral, disait: "Ils viennent passer quinze jours à Aix et repartent avec une boîte de calissons et un roman dont la scène est en Provence"."

        Historia de gentibus septentrionalibus, .... sic in epitomen redacta, ut non minus clare quam breviter quicquid apud Septentrionales scitu dignum est, complectatur.Antwerp, Christopher Plantin, 1558. 8vo. With Plantin's woodcut device and 135 fine woodcut illustrations by Arnaud Nicolai in text. Early 17th-century gold-tooled calf, with charming centrepiece on both boards.

      Adams O-143; Collijn II, 250; Rooses, Plantin, p. 39; Voet 1811 (variant A). First edition of the abridged version of the first important history of the Nordic countries originally published in Rome in 1555. Magnus describes the history, customs and folklore of Scandinavia, Iceland and Greenland, but also deals with mining and metallurgy, military subjects and natural history with a large part devoted to fish, fishery and whaling. Three "truths" feature heavily in the account: the region is the cradle of warfare, the haunt of demons and the realm of cold. Would-be invaders are warned that ice, snow and cold have produced a hardy people, distinguished by their courage, strength and bravery. As the book would remain an authority for centuries, Magnus's book played an important part in establishing the stereotypes of the Nordic countries as cold and barren, with a rugged coast guarded by maelstroms and sea monsters.The present abridgement was compiled by Cornelius Grapheus, an Antwerp town clerk and, according to the introduction, judged by Plantin to be of interest for publication. The numerous woodcuts are reduced copies of the illustrations in the original 1555-edition.Olaus Magnus (1490-1557) was a Swedish writer and ecclesiastical. Being the younger brother of the Archbishop of Uppsala, he obtained several ecclesiastical preferments and was employed on various diplomatic missions. His Historia de gentibus septentrionalibus was intended as an extended commentary on one of the earliest maps of the Nordic countries, created by Magnus and published in 1539. All of this work was based on a journey to Norrland in 1518-1519 during which Magnus also visited Nidaros (modern Trondheim).With a skilfully executed small restoration to top of spine, some scratches on sides, binding otherwise good. Internally in very good condition, only some small restored tears in the title-page and some occasional, very minor foxing along the extremities.

        Voyages du Chevalier Chardin, en Perse, et autres lieux de l'Orient, enrichis d'un grand nombre de belles figures en taille-douce, représentant les Antiquités et les choses remarquables du pays.

      Le Normant Imprimeur-Libraire Paris 1811 - Folio. With 85 engravings on 64 sheets (9 folding), including 1 map, portrait of Chardin, 18 sheets with double-illustrations and 1 sheet with 4; light waterstain on lower margin of several leaves. Near contemporary half polished calf over marbled boards; a bit rubbed. A very good copy of the atlas from the most desirable edition enhanced with new and larger plates. 'Chardin was a Huguenot who was forced to emigrate to England. He was knighted by Charles II and on his death was buried in Westminster Abbey. His first visit to the East was made in 1665, at the age of twenty-two, when he both gratified a love of travelling and carried on his trade as a dealer in jewels. His more important voyage was made in 1671. His route differed from that usually taken by travellers to the East Indies in that he proceeded by way of the Black Sea and the countries bordering thereon' (Cox I p 249-250). 'Chardin set out for Persia for a second time in August 1671, but on this occasion diverted through Smyrna and Constantinople, and took the Black Sea Route to Caucasia, Mingrelia and Georgia, finally arriving at Esfahan in June 1673. In Georgia he heard of a race of warlike women, the Amazons, who had at some time in the recent past invaded a kingdom to the northwest. He remained in Persia for four years, as he says 'chiefly following the court in its removals, but also making some particular journeys., as well as studying the language.' He apparently knew Esfahan better than Paris, and visited nearly every part of the country. His account of the Persian court and his business transactions with the shah are of considerable interest. In 1677 he proceeded to India, afterwards returning to France by way of the Cape of Good Hope' (Howgego C102); His second and more notable voyage to Persia, is important because it is in the account of this voyage that he describes life in late Safavid Persia' (Ghani p. 71). Includes, among others, lovely views of Tbilisi (Tiflis), Erevan, Ispahan, Persepolis as well as Georgian and Persian costumes, views of lavish palace rooms and the Coronation of Suleyman.

In 1841-43 he furthered his studies in Vienna, where he was a student of Anton Günther (1783-1863). In 1844 he earned his doctorate of theology at Breslau, and in 1845 became a professor of philosophy at the Catholic faculty of theology at the University of Bonn.Knoodt was an ardent follower of the philosophical teachings of Anton Günther, and several years after Günther's death, he published the biographical Anton Günther. Eine Biographie (1881, 2 volumes). This work has been praised as an important source of Catholic church history. Another noted work of Knoodt's was Günther und Clemens Offene Briefe (Günther and Franz Jakob Clemens Open Letters). Both publications were placed on the Index Librorum Prohibitorum (List of Prohibited Books) by the Roman Catholic Church." (source: Wikipedia)
