        Two Years in New South Wales; A Series of Letters

      London: Henry Colburn, 1827. Two volumes, duodecimo; occasional slight foxing, very good in nineteenth-century polished calf, spine gilt with black morocco labels, bookplates of William Henry Cox in both volumes. One of the best introductions to NSW in the 1820s. First edition: a lively and engaging description of New South Wales in the 1820s by Peter Cunningham, a naval surgeon who served on five voyages to Australia aboard convict transports before settling in the upper Hunter Valley. Of Scottish descent, Cunningham (1789-1864) joined the navy during the war with Napoleon and served in Spanish and North American waters. In 1819 he took the first of five commissions as surgeon-superintendent aboard the convict transport Recovery and enjoyed a good reputation for the slight loss of life under his care. Cunningham's last such voyage was in 1828, and it would appear that he arranged publication of the present work in London immediately prior. Comprising a series of letters to friends in Britain, Cunningham's account is a valuable contribution to the social history of the colony. It includes detailed and unguarded descriptions of peculiarly Australian social customs, with some observations on the vocabulary and accent of those born in the colony. A long letter of 40 pages treats Aboriginal life and customs. The letters are eminently readable and engaging, penned in an easy style; they enjoyed a wide popular appeal, with three English editions by 1828 and three in German by 1832. Given the author's considerable experience as a surgeon-superintendent serving on transports, the two sections devoted to the care and management of convicts on the Australian voyage are of special interest. In total, 66 pages are specifically devoted to the subject; with treatment of diet, morale, discipline, clothing, hygiene, exercises, games to alleviate boredom and relations between felons and the marines set to guard them.

        Ricordi di me Aurelio Puccini, figlio del tenente Vincenzo Puccini e della Felice Zuccotti di lui moglie. Comincio questi appunti di me gennaio 1827 [.].

      - Firenze [gennaio 1827 - agosto 1837]. Quattro quaderni manoscritti, in-4: il primo più grande e ampio, l'unico rilegato, con una copertina "a busta" in piena pergamena (probabilmente sia la copertina che le carte su cui è steso il manoscritto sono più antiche), gli altri aggiunti in seguito senza copertine, carte [96] - [20] - [20] - [10]. Documento originale di grande interesse, pubblicato da Giovanni Ciappelli nel volume "Un ministro del Granducato di Toscana nell'età della Restaurazione: Aurelio Puccini (1773-1840) e le sue Memorie." Roma, Edizioni di Storia e Letteratura, 2007: "Rimane l'interesse oggettivo del testo per il ruolo istituzionale ricoperto da Puccini, avvocato e magistrato, responsabile di quello che di fatto fu il Ministero di Polizia del Granducato di Toscana nei primi 12 anni della Restaurazione, nonché presidente della Regia Consulta della Corte di Cassazione all'epoca dell'elaborazione del nuovo Codice Penale Toscano. Ma anche (e quasi indipendentemente da questo) a causa della sua natura di fonte memorialistica, ignota, quindi mai utilizzata, relativa ad una famiglia toscana di ceto medio-alto in un momento foriero di forti cambiamenti". Le "Memorie" coprono il periodo dal gennaio 1827 all'agosto 1837; la scrittura del Puccini è di non facile lettura, con qualche consunzione e scoloritura e rare macchie. Manoscritto dichiarato di interesse storico particolarmente importante e notificato dal Ministero dei Beni e delle Attività Culturali, Direzione Regionale per i beni Culturali della Toscana, con decreto del 22 ottobre 2013.

        The Book of Birds and Beasts , beautifully coloured, With a Description of Each, adapted to the capacities of infant minds, in words of two or three syllables

      London: William Darton, n.d. but, 1827. Square duodecimo, printed title-page, 48 hand-coloured plates with letterpress description verso, final 2 pp. advertisements, most of the captions clipped but those extant dated 26 August 1826, early manuscript presentation dated 1827; a fine and handsome copy in publisher's binding of red calf, lettered in gilt to front board. A particularly rare and uncommonly attractive children's work of natural history, including fine hand-coloured plates of the kangaroo and the platypus, bound in the fine original red publisher's binding. Mary Belson Elliott (1794?-1870) was a prolific writer for children in the first half of the nineteenth century, issuing any number of books with the specialist publisher Darton. Elliott was known for her pious tone: the recent bibliography of her works by Marjorie Moon carries the title "blending sound Christian principles with cheerful cultivation." The book includes an interesting mix of familiar domestic animals and more exotic species. The engraving of the kangaroo is based on the famous Stubbs image, about which Elliott notes, 'One of the most curious creatures we can behold… first known to us through the great Captain Cook, when he was on the coast of New Holland, fifty-seven years ago.' The note for the second Australian animal noted here, the platypus, is worth quoting in some length: 'This strange-looking animal is, as you read under the print, a creature of New Holland, and really there is nothing in its form to tempt us to wish it were a native of our own coasts. The platypus was not known to us until of late years…'. One of the most quaint aspects of the description of the platypus is the cautionary tone adopted by Elliott, who is evidently concerned that young readers will be tempted to question divine sensibility on being confronted with such an unusual animal, exhorting the little ones to remember that 'His works are without fault! Our blindness may fancy a blemish, but in reality nature is complete.' Not recorded in any Australian collection, this is a very scarce work. Some very slight variations in collation are known in the handful of recorded copies of this work. All of the pages are unnumbered, as always, and this copy has 100 pages in total, comprising title-page (verso blank), 96 pages of text, and two pages of advertisements. Some other copies are known with two extra half-titles, a contents page, and a slightly different title-page (adding 'Two shillings and six pence'): where noticed, these copies are recorded as 104 pages in total. It is likely, therefore, that the current copy, priced more expensively at 4 shillings "bound in red", constitutes the rarer fine issue.

        "Adolf von Zerzog aus Bayern", rechts unten Skizze mit Schiffsausschnitt 1827.

      1827. Bleistift, auf Bütten, unten bezeichnet "Adolf von Zerzog aus Bayern /genannt Schiffs..ns / / Theodor .... aus Nürnberg./ ..... den 7ten 1827 .". 20,9:13,2 cm, auf Untersatz montiert und dort rechts unter der Darstellung signiert "A. Zimmermann del.", links unten von fremder Hand bezeichnet "Brief von Zerzog, Gutbesitzer aus Prüfening bei Regensburg, ehemaliges Mitglied des Frankfurter Parlaments gestorben daselbst am 14. März 1880 (Illustr. Zeitung A. 1917. 27/308)." Mit leichten Gebrauchsspuren.. Zimmermann besuchte die Akademie in Dresden von 1818-1825 bei F. Hartmann (1774-1842) und J.C. Rößler (1775-1845). Anschließend reiste er mit C.G. Peschel (1798-1879) nach Rom, wo er 5 Jahre blieb und vermutlich Kontakte zum Kreis der Nazarener unterhielt. 1929 unternahm er mit J. von Führich (1800-1876) eine Reise nach Neapel. 1830-1835 lebte er in Dresden, bis 1846 in Münster und Düsseldorf. Bis zu seinem Tode lebte er dann in Breslau. Dort fand er die Unterstützung vom Fürstbischof Heinrich II. A. von Zerzog studierte 1819-1824 Rechtswissenschaften an den Universitäten Jena, Würzburg und Erlangen. 1825 ging er als Forstlehrling in die Oberpfalz, war anschließend Gutbesitzer. Im Frankfurter Parlament war er 1848/1849 als Mitglied des volkswirtschaftlichen Ausschusses Abgeordneter für Regensburg. Von Zerzog, der als "bayrisches Original" unter den Frankfurter Abgeordneten galt, hat sich ein Briefwechsel erhalten, der einen guten Einblick in die Revolutionszeit von 1848/1849 liefert (vgl. W. Chrobak/E. Mages (Hrsg.), Adolf von Zerzog: Ein Bayer in der Paulskirche. Die Briefe des Regensburger Abgeordneten Adolf von Zerzog aus der Frankfurter Nationalversammlung 1848/49, Regensburg 1998.)

        Voyage autour du monde. Hydrographie Atlas

      Paris: Arthus Bertrand, 1827. Folio, with 49 maps (18 folding) and four plates of boats, crisp tall impressions, very slightly browned along top edges not affecting images, title-page a little creased; an excellent copy in old quarter calf over papered boards, spine banded with red morocco label, a little rubbed. Hydrography of the Duperrey voyage. The complete hydrographical atlas from the Duperrey voyage, published as part of one of the immense French grands voyages series. As with most of these publications, the various components could also be bought separately, sometimes even being produced by different publishers. In fact full publication of the Duperrey voyage was never completed. Duperrey's voyage gathered 'vast quantities of ethnographic and scientific data' (Hill), and included two visits to the Australian mainland. His hydrographic work tended, as Dunmore comments, 'towards perfecting existing maps rather than preparing charts of unknown areas'. As a result, the beautiful maps clearly display their debt to the earlier explorers, and include the discoveries and vessel tracks of luminaries such as Cook, Bougainville, La Pérouse, Bligh and Flinders. The details of the harbours at the Brisbane River and Macquarie Harbour in Nouvelle Hollande are attributed in the cartouche to Oxley and Evans respectively.

        Einige Naturhistorische Bemerkungen über die Walle nebst einer Abbildung

      Greifswald: F.W. Kunicke, 1827. Folio, with engraved plate by G. Eduard Müller, some foxing; a good copy preserved in recent paper boards, blue morocco label to spine. A lovely copy of this rare work on the Minke Whale, here referred to by the now obsolete classification of Balaena rostrata Fabr. var. major. The beauty of this work is the elegant engraving by G. Eduard Müller in Berlin. One of the smaller Baleen Whales, so-called for the plates they use to "filter feed", the Minke was first described by Fabricius in 1780 (hence the classification by Rosenthal), but is better known from Lacépède's 1804 description in his Histoire naturelle des cétacés. As the letterpress explains, this work was prompted by the stranding of the whale on the coast of the Baltic island of Rügen, a chance which gave natural historians a rare opportunity to study the animal in detail. Rosenthal published this rare work as a festschrift for Dr Siegfried Joachim Meyer, the mayor of Greifswald. He also wrote a small monograph on the seal.

        Autograph letter signed to Bory de Saint-Vincent

      Paris, Rue St Roch, 5: 2 March, 1827. Two-page autograph letter, on a single sheet of laid paper, folded to letter size 200 x 162 mm., neat autograph manuscript on two pages, the third blank and the fourth an address panel; remnants of seal, postal stamp also dated 2 March 1827. Louis to Bory de Saint-Vincent in debtor's prison. An intriguing letter from Louis de Freycinet, apparently warm but perhaps a little evasive, to his former shipmate on the Baudin voyage and the author of the only other first-hand narrative account of the voyage, Bory de Saint-Vincent. Bory had evidently written to Freycinet requesting to swap some of his own books for a copy of one of Freycinet's voyage publications (Freycinet here simply refers to "mon voyage", and the 1827 date does not confirm whether this means the second edition of the Baudin voyage or the early parts of the Freycinet voyage: both accounts date from 1824). Freycinet is mortified that he cannot spare Bory a copy: he only has his own working copy, and even that is incomplete, as he has had to give up a number of leaves to complete a friend's copy. As to getting hold of another copy, Bory should know how difficult it is to part a publisher from their profits. Although the relationship of the two men was evidently friendly, there is a reticence in Freycinet's letter that may be explained by an uneasiness that likely still existed between those who, like Bory, had quit the Baudin voyage and those who saw it through to the end, like Freycinet. The tone is friendly but cautious, displaying some of the circumlocution common in Freycinet's relations with more remote colleagues. Nonetheless Freycinet shows that he follows Bory's work, and particularly comments that he will read his articles on the "sea and mountains" with great pleasure and interest - presumably these are the forthcoming articles that Bory offered to exchange. Freycinet is sorry not to have seen Bory at all this year, but he has had a lot on his plate. Perhaps some of Freycinet's hesitation may be explained by Bory de Saint-Vincent's address: at the time of writing he was evidently to be found in the debtors' prison at Saint-Pelagie in the fifth arrondissement of Paris. Bory's life went through numerous ups and downs. As a side note, Freycinet gives his own address as Rue Neuve Saint Roch number 5.

        Remarks on the comparative merits of cast metal and malleable iron rail-ways; and an account of the Stockton and Darlington rail-way, &c. &c

      Newcastle upon Tyne: Edward Walker, 1827. First collected edition. Half calf. Very good. First collected edition. Half calf. 8vo in 4s (215 × 140 mm), pp. iv, 5-22; 39, [1, blank]; 26; 3 folding lithographed plates on india paper, one torn and neatly repaired; ownership label of Michael Max on front free endpaper (no. 99, shelf 1); very good in gilt panelled modern green half calf over marbled boards, new endpapers. First edition of Longridge and Birkinshaw';s collection of early railway literature.Michael Longridge (1785-1858) was one of the original partners in Robert Stephenson & Co. Locomotive and Steam Engine Manufacturer, formed in 1823, in which he held a one-fifth interest. He later formed R. B. Longridge and Company (named for his son), a steam locomotives work situated at Bedlington, and in close association with the more famous ironworks there, which had been bought in the 1780s by Michael';s uncle, William Hawks. His co-author, John Birkinshaw, also worked at the Bedlington Ironworks and was a patentee of malleable iron edge rails in October 1820 (the specification is given in the present volume). While Longridge produced his first locomotive, a 0-6-0 (called Michael Longridge) in 1837, the present work was published ten years earlier in 1827 and shows Longridge and Birkinshaw coming to grips with the contemporary situation of railway development.The work comprises ‘[a] collection of correspondence, newspaper extracts reports from railway companies, etc.';, and in this copy is bound with James Adamson';s Sketches of our information as to rail-roads, published in Newcastle in 1826, sometimes issued together, as noted by Ottley, p. 52.Ottley 313, 2608, 6458, 7094; Skempton 860; COPAC records copies at the BL, Cambridge, Manchester and York; Skempton adds the SML and the Elton collection at Ironbridge.

        Two Years in New South Wales; A Series of Letters?

      Henry Colburn, London 1827 - Two volumes, duodecimo; occasional slight foxing, very good in nineteenth-century polished calf, spine gilt with black morocco labels, bookplates of William Henry Cox in both volumes. One of the best introductions to NSW in the 1820s. First edition: a lively and engaging description of New South Wales in the 1820s by Peter Cunningham, a naval surgeon who served on five voyages to Australia aboard convict transports before settling in the upper Hunter Valley. Of Scottish descent, Cunningham (1789-1864) joined the navy during the war with Napoleon and served in Spanish and North American waters. In 1819 he took the first of five commissions as surgeon-superintendent aboard the convict transport Recovery and enjoyed a good reputation for the slight loss of life under his care. Cunningham's last such voyage was in 1828, and it would appear that he arranged publication of the present work in London immediately prior. Comprising a series of letters to friends in Britain, Cunningham's account is a valuable contribution to the social history of the colony. It includes detailed and unguarded descriptions of peculiarly Australian social customs, with some observations on the vocabulary and accent of those born in the colony. A long letter of 40 pages treats Aboriginal life and customs. The letters are eminently readable and engaging, penned in an easy style; they enjoyed a wide popular appeal, with three English editions by 1828 and three in German by 1832. Given the author's considerable experience as a surgeon-superintendent serving on transports, the two sections devoted to the care and management of convicts on the Australian voyage are of special interest. In total, 66 pages are specifically devoted to the subject; with treatment of diet, morale, discipline, clothing, hygiene, exercises, games to alleviate boredom and relations between felons and the marines set to guard them.

A milestone of modern scientific cartography: this is the final volume, comprising Australia, New Zealand and Oceania, of the pioneering large-scale atlas produced by Philippe Vandermaelen, founder of the Etablissement Géographique in Brussels. The atlas is remarkable on several counts, not least its extraordinary scale of 26 miles to the inch. For the first time remote and inaccessible areas of the globe were mapped on a generous uniform scale, reflecting the objective spirit of scientific cartography then superseding the Eurocentric models of the eighteenth century. The atlas was printed lithographically, the happy outcome of a fruitful collaboration between Vandermaelen and master lithographer Henri Ode. Perhaps the most extraordinary aspect of the atlas was its potential to be formed into an enormous globe with a diameter exceeding seven meters. Indeed, one complete globe was assembled for public display at the Etablissement Géographique in Brussels. The attention to detail - and considerable challenges posed by the lithographic process - are evident in this volume dedicated to Australia and the Pacific. Although some areas remain uncharted, the sixty maps here included reflect a fastidious collation of information from myriad voyage accounts. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Einige Naturhistorische Bemerkungen über die Walle nebst einer Abbildung

      F.W. Kunicke, Greifswald 1827 - Folio, with engraved plate by G. Eduard Müller, some foxing; a good copy preserved in recent paper boards, blue morocco label to spine. A lovely copy of this rare work on the Minke Whale, here referred to by the now obsolete classification of Balaena rostrata Fabr. var. major. The beauty of this work is the elegant engraving by G. Eduard Müller in Berlin. One of the smaller Baleen Whales, so-called for the plates they use to "filter feed", the Minke was first described by Fabricius in 1780 (hence the classification by Rosenthal), but is better known from Lacépède's 1804 description in his Histoire naturelle des cétacés. As the letterpress explains, this work was prompted by the stranding of the whale on the coast of the Baltic island of Rügen, a chance which gave natural historians a rare opportunity to study the animal in detail. Rosenthal published this rare work as a festschrift for Dr Siegfried Joachim Meyer, the mayor of Greifswald. He also wrote a small monograph on the seal. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Result of an Examination? of the Heads of 148 convicts on board the convict ship England?' [in] The Phrenological Journal and Miscellany Vol. IV

      October 1826 - November, Edinburgh 1827 - Octavo, a little toning to the pages but generally good; contemporary green half calf, spine banded and gilt, a little bumped. Full year's run of this journal, which includes a fascinating article on the phrenological experiments - the first of their kind - carried out on board the convict ship England in the spring of 1826. The article is entitled: 'Result of an Examination, by Mr James de Ville, of the Heads of 148 convicts on board the convict ship England, when about to sail for New South Wales in the Spring of 1826' (pp. 467-71). In his youth De Ville (1777-1846) worked as the assistant to a sculptor, and this expertise with plaster-of-paris led to him being asked to make phrenological casts, and he soon immersed himself in the newly emerging practice, writing pamphlets and lecturing. His reading of the heads of the convicts on board the England was one of his great successes: the navy surgeon on board, one Dr Thomson, hosted De Ville for his experiment in the spring of 1826, at the suggestion of Mr Wardrop of London. The article notes that 'Mr De Ville furnished [Thomson] with a distinct memorandum of the inferred character of each individual convict, and pointed out the manner in which the dispositions of each would probably appear in his general conduct on the passage. The desperadoes were all specifically noted, and a mode of treatment to prevent mischief suggested. One man in particular was noted as very dangerous, from his energy, ferocity, and talent for plots and profound dissimulation. His name was Robert Hughes.' Thomson kept a log during the voyage which was deposited in the Victualling Office, and the present article details some events from this log, including a plan by Hughes and his co-conspirator Thomas Jones to seize the ship and run it for South America. Needless to say such forethought was very pleasing to Thomson, and the article also includes his single-page letter written from Sydney on 9 October 1826, with his note that the convicts 'were going to rip up the poor doctor like a pig.'.

        In Bekanntschaft

      . Bleistift auf Papier, unten rechts datiert "1827.", verso mit dem Nachlaßstempel, 103 x 159 mm. Die Bleistiftzeichnung von der Hand Friedrich Eisenlohrs gewährt uns Einblick in die gute Stube eines bürgerlichen Hauses zur Biedermeierzeit. Um den Tisch haben sich Eltern und ihre schon erwachsenen Töchter und Söhne versammelt. Alle Aufmerksamkeit richtet sich auf die jungen Männer, die über ein Schriftstück gebeugt sind, das vorgelesen und diskutiert wird. Die Anwesenden folgen der Lektüre gespannt, ohne dabei aber starke Emotionen zu zeigen. Zu diesem Zeitpunkt war der Zeichner zu Gast, dessen sichere Bleistiftführung die Szene eingefangen hat. Vielleicht war er mit einem der Söhne befreundet. Es wird wohl ein kunstsinniges Haus gewesen sein, denn über dem Sekretär an der Wand sind Zeichengerät und Papierrollen zu erkennen, die auf den Beruf des Architekten schließen lassen. Auch an die familiäre Wohnung Eisenlohrs wäre zu denken. Auf jeden Fall war Eisenlohr hier in vertrauter Umgebung, denn bei der Zeichnung handelt es sich um eine ganz private Schilderung, die nicht auf Repräsentation abzielt. Andernfalls hätte man alle Versammelten von vorne gezeigt, die Körperhaltungen korrigiert und die Frau im Zentrum ohne Kopfbinde dargestellt. Gerade das Ungestellte der Szene macht dieses Gruppenbildnis zu einem wertvollen Dokument der romantischen Familienund Freundschaftskultur. Die Darstellung wird durch eine Schärfe im Zeichnerischen geprägt, die von der klassizistischen Ausbildung des Künstlers herrührt. Seine Linienkunst betont die Konturen und hebt die Silhouetten der Figuren hervor. Friedrich Eisenlohr war selbst noch jung, als er diese Zeichnung schuf, gerade 22 Jahre alt. Der Sohn eines protestantischen Predigers aus Lörrach hatte damals bereits die Bauschule von Friedrich Weinbrenner in Karlsruhe absolviert und machte sich bald danach auf seine große Italienreise. Der Ort seines Studiums entwickelte sich zum Mittelpunkt seiner Karriere, in deren Verlauf er schließlich zum Professor des Polytechnicums und zum Baurat berufen wurde. Eisenlohr wurde neben Heinrich Hübsch zum Begründer der romantischen Architektur Badens und war für die Errichtung zahlreicher neoromanischer Bahnhofsbauten und neogotischer Kirchen verantwortlich. Nebenbei wirkte er als leidenschaftlicher Landschaftszeichner.

        "Adolf von Zerzog aus Bayern", rechts unten Skizze mit Schiffsausschnitt 1827.

      1827. Bleistift, auf Bütten, unten bezeichnet "Adolf von Zerzog aus Bayern /genannt Schiffs..ns / / Theodor .... aus Nürnberg./ ..... den 7ten 1827 .". 20,9:13,2 cm, auf Untersatz montiert und dort rechts unter der Darstellung signiert "A. Zimmermann del.", links unten von fremder Hand bezeichnet "Brief von Zerzog, Gutbesitzer aus Prüfening bei Regensburg, ehemaliges Mitglied des Frankfurter Parlaments gestorben daselbst am 14. März 1880 (Illustr. Zeitung A. 1917. 27/308)." Mit leichten Gebrauchsspuren.. Zimmermann besuchte die Akademie in Dresden von 1818-1825 bei F. Hartmann (1774-1842) und J.C. Rößler (1775-1845). Anschließend reiste er mit C.G. Peschel (1798-1879) nach Rom, wo er 5 Jahre blieb und vermutlich Kontakte zum Kreis der Nazarener unterhielt. 1929 unternahm er mit J. von Führich (1800-1876) eine Reise nach Neapel. 1830-1835 lebte er in Dresden, bis 1846 in Münster und Düsseldorf. Bis zu seinem Tode lebte er dann in Breslau. Dort fand er die Unterstützung vom Fürstbischof Heinrich II. A. von Zerzog studierte 1819-1824 Rechtswissenschaften an den Universitäten Jena, Würzburg und Erlangen. 1825 ging er als Forstlehrling in die Oberpfalz, war anschließend Gutbesitzer. Im Frankfurter Parlament war er 1848/1849 als Mitglied des volkswirtschaftlichen Ausschusses Abgeordneter für Regensburg. Von Zerzog, der als "bayrisches Original" unter den Frankfurter Abgeordneten galt, hat sich ein Briefwechsel erhalten, der einen guten Einblick in die Revolutionszeit von 1848/1849 liefert (vgl. W. Chrobak/E. Mages (Hrsg.), Adolf von Zerzog: Ein Bayer in der Paulskirche. Die Briefe des Regensburger Abgeordneten Adolf von Zerzog aus der Frankfurter Nationalversammlung 1848/49, Regensburg 1998.)
