        A Cabinet of Portraits consisting of Distinguished Characters, British and Foreign: accompanied with a Brief Memoir of each Person

      London, William Darton, [circa 1825]. Octavo, xii, 64 pages plus 64 engraved portraits with tissue-guards. Early gilt-decorated half calf and marbled papered boards a little rubbed and bumped at the extremities; corners and the rear leading edge a little worn; 'Vol III' label missing from the spine; occasional scattered foxing and offsetting; a very good copy. From the collection of James Hurtle Fisher, with his armorial bookplate on the pastedown and his signature in ink at the head of the engraved title page. Sir James Hurtle Fisher (1790-1875) 'was one of the most important pioneers of South Australia' (Australian Dictionary of Biography). He commenced practice as a solicitor in London in 1816 and 'was drawn into the colonizing movement in 1835.... [He] was selected as resident commissioner, one of the most important offices under the South Australian Act ... second only to the governor'. Fisher 'left England in July 1836 with the governor's party in the "Buffalo", arriving on 28 December 1836 at Holdfast Bay, where the official oaths were administered, a proclamation was read and a ceremony marked the beginning of settlement. In January 1837 Fisher erected his reed hut and Land Office near the survey camp of Colonel William Light at the north-western corner of the new capital site; the destruction of these temporary buildings by fire on 23 January 1839 caused both men serious loss. Fisher had been allowed to draft his own instructions, which were not shown to Governor [Sir] John Hindmarsh. Disputes between the two men over their respective powers had begun on the voyage and were soon revived in the new Council of Government, and more violently outside, and led in February 1837 to the Resident Magistrate's Court binding the participants over to keep the peace towards each other.... The new governor, George Gawler, was appointed both governor and resident commissioner, a radical departure from the principles on which the colony had been founded'. Fisher returned to his profession, and became a leader of the South Australian Bar. In October 1840 he was elected first mayor of Adelaide; in 1860 he became the first resident South Australian to be knighted. The destructive fire referred to above is described in detail in the biography of Light (Dutton and Elder, 1991). Light was living 'in the wood and reed surveyor's hut alongside Fisher's equally combustible house in the parklands on North Terrace. In his own account, "... we discovered Fisher's house to be on fire. At the same time, the breeze freshening up, the destruction to both houses became inevitable. In less than ten minutes both houses were burnt to the ground, mine catching fire at the roof by a lighted piece from Fisher's. We saved nothing of value"'. Accordingly, personal mementoes such as this, presumably brought by Fisher to South Australia on the 'Buffalo', must be of the utmost rarity.

        A Treatise on the Culture of the Vine, and the Art of Making Wine; compiled from the works of Chaptal, and other French Writers; and from the notes of the Compiler, during a residence in some of the Wine Provinces of France

      Australia: R. Howe, Government Printer, 1825. Fine copy in restored original binding.. Small quarto, with a folding table, some light browning; a fine copy, complete with the errata leaf, in contemporary polished half-calf over marbled boards, bumped, sympathetically rebacked, with most of the original spine laid down, lettered and decorated in gilt. Fine copy of the iconic work on Australian wine, in the preferred "quarto" format. Only very rarely seen on the market: this is the first book on Australian wine, the first book on wine to be published in Australia and the first book to carry the imprint "Australia" on the title page. This copy corresponds with the special issue in quarto format on thicker paper identified by the bibliographer Ferguson - though it has been convincingly argued that the difference between copies is not so much a question of issue as of the particular materials, especially paper, available to the publisher at the time. By 1825 the publishing industry in Sydney was mature but still slight of build, and certainly still subject to the vagaries of supply.James Busby, the father of Australian viticulture, was born in Scotland in 1801; he emigrated to New South Wales in 1824 after visiting the Bordeaux region of France where he studied methods of viticulture. He published his Treatise very shortly after his arrival in the colony. Five years later he published his Manual of Plain Directions that was aimed at small settlers whom he hoped would be able to "enjoy their daily bottle of wine, the produce of their own farms". Busby received a grant on the upper Hunter River, which he named "Kirkton", shortly after the publication of the Treatise and planted it with European vines. This famous vineyard was taken over by Lindemans in 1914.A very attractive copy of this foundation book, which marks the very beginnings of the Australian wine industry. Provenance: Private collection (Australia).

        System der Zeitrechnung in chronologischen Tabellen.

      Berlin, Maurer, 1825. - Folio (270 x 420 mm). (2), XL, 152 (but: 160) pp. (with inserted pages 4a/b, 20a-d, 120A/121A). Contemporary orange boards with giltstamped spine. Only edition. - The scholar and mathematician Meyer Moses Kornick (also: Kurnik, d. in Hamburg in 1826) was a native of Glogau in Silesia, where he also served as a rabbi. "Kornick, who had corresponded with Rabbis Akiva Eger and Moses Sofer as well as contemporary Christian savants, published synoptic calendar tables that were highly regarded in scholarly circles, both Jewish and non-Jewish [. This] concordance of Julian, Gregorian, Jewish, and Islamic calendars formed the basis of Jahn's 'Tafeln' (Leipzig, 1856). It was highly praised by Isidore Loeb in his 'Tables du Calendrier Juif' (Paris: Durlacher, 1886). Max Simon [.] explained that although Kornick's esteemed tables were sold out at booksellers they still could be found with scholars who rely upon the tables for their research" (E. Carlebach, When Does the Modern Period of the Jewish Calendar Begin?, in: L. Strauss [ed.], Mediating Modernity [2008], pp. 43-54, at p. 47; 53). - Some brownstaining, mainly confined to margins.

        GERMAN POPULAR STORIES

      1825. [still in the original boards] translated from the Kinder und Haus Marchen. From Oral Tradition. [In Two Volumes.] London: James Robins & Co. / Dublin: Joseph Robins Junr. & Co., 1825/1826. 10 pp preliminary ads in Vol I; 1 page terminal ads in Vol II. Original pink paper-covered boards with green cloth spines and printed spine labels, all page edges uncut. First Edition in English of Vol II, and second edition of Vol I -- which is how this pair of volumes is often found, since the 1823 first edition of Vol I "is a rarity eagerly sought after by collectors of early children's books" [Quayle, in 1971]. That 1823 first volume was by a different publisher and in a different binding, but here, both the 1825 Vol I and the 1826 Vol II are by the publisher and in the binding that is standard for Vol II. (This second edition of Vol I includes a ten-page Preface not in the first.)~The volumes contain such tales as "The Travelling [Bremen-Town] Musicians," "Hansel and Grettel," "Rumpel-stilts-kin" and "Tom Thumb." Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm, both professors of linguistics, collaborated in collecting these folk and fairy tales from the mouths of their country-folk; the tales had first been published in German in two volumes in 1812/1815. Included in these two volumes are engraved title pages plus nineteen (of twenty) plates by a young George Cruikshank.~As for condition, there is general wear to the edges of the boards and a little at the ends of the spines; about half of the Vol I spine label, and about a third of the Vol II spine label, have perished. There is occasional foxing, and the bottom half-inch of a rear free endpaper is torn away. Each half-title bears an 1828 inscription from father to son. It is amazing that these two volumes are still in their fragile paper-cover boards, more than 190 years after publication; the page edges are still uncut, as issued. Quayle CHILDREN'S pp 37-38. Housed in a cloth slipcase with leather label, with inner chemise.

Woodcut Portuguese royal arms on title page. Some light soiling and staining, mostly marginal. In good to very good condition. Old signature on verso of title page. A few contemporary ink and later pencil corrections and marginal highlights in text. Later notes in ink on verso of last leaf. 83 pp. *** FIRST EDITION of this rare text compiled for the use of Arantes' students at the University of Coimbra, but almost immediately suppressed. He discusses the subject of historical chronology, various calendars and dating systems used in earlier times, the problems of dating historical events described in Classical texts and early chronicles, the uncertainty surrounding Biblical dates and the year of Christ's birth, etc. Following the text are various tables giving dates of important events in Portuguese and world history. The Compendio ran afoul of the university censor and, after a bitter dispute, a corrected second edition was published in Lisbon in 1826, with all remaining copies of the first edition being withdrawn. Arantes (1783-1870) was born in Recife; after earning a doctorate in theology at Coimbra, he was appointed to its faculty. He later became dean of the Coimbra cathedral and administrator of the bishopric.*** Sacramento Blake III, 5.
