        Chart of part of New South Wales with plans of the harbours . Respectfully dedicated to John Oxley, Esq., Surveyor-General

      London: Joseph Cross, but sold by James Wyld, 1828. Large hand-coloured engraved map, 1180 x 650 mm., dissected and backed on linen as issued, the linen with a few stains but the printed surface very fresh; Ingleton bookplate, in the original marbled card slipcase showing some wear, but as issued with printed label completed in manuscript to front. With an inset depicting Port Phillip. One of the great maps of New South Wales: this very fine and handsome map is notable for a series of important inset charts including Moreton Bay, Port Jackson, and Port Phillip. One of the most consulted of any of the Australian maps of this era, it is dedicated to John Oxley, then Surveyor General of New South Wales. The London publisher Cross was responsible for any number of important publications relating to Australia in the 1820s and 1830s, and was perhaps the most influential promoter of the colonies at that time. This marvellous map is related to another first printed by Cross for the 1826 publication by James Atkinson, An Account of the State of Agriculture & Grazing in New South Wales, but such was the pace of exploration and settlement in this period that Cross first issued this significantly extended and more detailed map in 1827, and again with corrections in 1828 as here. Indeed, the map was not out of print for more than a decade, constantly revised to include the latest information. Any issue is now of some rarity, and copies in such fine condition are notably scarce, particularly complete with the original card sleeve in which it was issued. This copy was sold by James Wyld the elder of Charing Cross and has his printed label on the front; Wyld was the Geographer to the King. The small vignettes printed on the Atkinson version (thought to have been based on the work of John Lewin), are here replaced with important charts of all the main harbours: Moreton Bay, Port Macquarie, Port Stephens, Port Hunter, Broken Bay, Port Jackson, Botany Bay, Jervis Bay, Twofold Bay, Western Port, and Port Phillip. There is also an inset depiction of the entire Australian coastline. The map also prints a very detailed picture of the state of inland exploration, notably including the relatively recent discoveries of Hume and Hovell. Tooley knew this 1828 issue from a copy in his own collection. This is the Ingleton copy with shelf mark, noted in his catalogue as "extremely rare

        AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED.

      Date unknown, circa 1828.16 lines handwritten in ink on half a sheet of notepaper without address, unfolded size: 320 x 205 mm, 13 x 8 inches. Addressed to Miss Sarah Lachlan for whom he had written the acrostic poem Un Solitaire: " Dear Miss Lachlan, Emma has so few days to stay with me, that it would be painful to me to part with her for one whole one. But I will bring her to tea with you on Monday, and you shall let us go before 8. I enclose your brother an autograph of Jekyll, Bencher of the Temple, and the reputed wit of the Bar for the last 50 years. Your brother is too young to have heard much about him, but he has been widely known in his profession, as a capital epigrammatist etc. and was the reigning joker of his age. With Emma's kindest love to your aunt & self. Yours truly C Lamb, Saturday evening." The letter refers to Emma Isola the adopted daughter of Charles and Mary. She was an accomplished amateur artist and did a drawing to go with the poem Un Solitaire written for Miss Lachlan. With the letter is a copy of the poem in an unknown hand on a pale yellow leaf to which is pasted a brief note seemingly in Lamb's hand: "Mr Lamb has scribbled on a vacant leaf, which may be torn out without ceremony, if his nonsense is out of place. He will in that case beg leave to try again. Miss Isola requests him to return thanks for a sight of the album, & could wish her contribution better". There are very slight textual differences in this version of the poem from the usual printed one. Finally there is a sheet of notepaper with a poem of 3 4 - line stanzas by Mary Lamb beginning: "My sweetly modest tranquil Child / So Humble duteous pensive mild.." addressed to "My Dear Sarah with my earnest prayers for every happiness to attend Her, M L". This seems also to concern Sarah Lachlan and was written for the occasion of her birthday. The letters have been folded twice, remains of a small red seal on Charles Lamb's, address panel browned on Mary's, leaf with Un Solitaire has a greetings card pasted to reverse from when it was in an album.

        A Series of Progressive Lessons intended to Elucidate the Art of Painting in Water Colours

      London: T. Clay, 1828. Oblong quarto; illustrated throughout with full-page hand-coloured lithographs; a fine copy in later quarter maroon calf over original marbled boards. Learning to paint in watercolour. Artistic tuition by a notable English painter whose reputation has grown in recent years. The recent major exhibition of Cox's work at the Yale Center for British Art, with a substantial accompanying reference work, has drawn further attention to a painter who, although somewhat out of fashion in recent decades, has often been compared with Turner, Constable and Burne-Jones. 'Known mainly as a painter in watercolour, Cox is one of the major figures in the golden age of that medium and of English landscape painting, which began towards the end of the 18th century and might be thought of ending with the death of Turner in 1851. Cox was born in Heath Mill Lane, Digbeth, in 1783 and gained early experience as a theatrical scene painter. He moved to London in 1804 to pursue this career, but gravitated to the form of art for which he is best known. Between 1814 and 1827 he made a living as a drawing master in Hereford, returned to live in London until 1841 and "retired" to Birmingham where he died in 1859…' (Terry Grimley, reviewing the exhibition in the Birmingham Post). In the nineteenth century the skill of painting and drawing was considered as necessary as was, according to fixed ideas of gender, the learning of a foreign language or a musical instrument, the study of the classics or the fine art of needlework; such accomplishments were seen as indicators of one's civilized position in society. At a period when the English were travelling widely to Europe for the first time, beautifully illustrated and informative texts were prepared to meet the educational requirements of this new upper class taste. English cultural life was being extended to embrace studies of natural history, science and the art of landscape painting. This is an excellent example of just such a text: it includes studies on perspective, sketching, shading and marine art. The illustrations are prepared in lithography and coloured by hand, and some of the larger plates are folding. The ability to draw topography was at the same time seen as an important skill for naval and military officers, having obviously important practical applications and often being taught to cadets from a young age. Although this manual is rather advanced for military purposes, it would have been of particular interest to the often military men who drifted into landscape painting and found a ready audience for publication of their illustrations of exotic travels. 'Cox's work was praised by Thackeray in Sketches after English Landscape Painters (1850) and Ruskin wrote in 1857 that "there is not any other landscape which comes near these works of David Cox in simplicity or seriousness". Although Cox's standing in the art world reached its apex in the late 19th century, recent reappraisals of Victorian art have seen Cox rightly restored to his position as one of the finest of all British landscape painters…' (National Library of Scotland).

        The Pelican Island, and other Poems

      London: Longman, et al., 1828. Duodecimo, a lovely uncut copy in papered boards with original gilt lettered cloth backstrip, as issued (moderately rubbed with a little wear to extremities). Flinders gets his poet. Long and curious poem - comprising nine cantos of blank verse - directly inspired by Matthew Flinders evocative descriptive of Kangaroo Island. James Montgomery was a popular poet of the early Victorian era and freely acknowledges his debt to Flinders in the preface of this book: 'The subject of "The Pelican Island" was suggested by a passage in Captain Flinders's Voyage to Terra Australis' [here follows a lengthy excerpt from the book detailing a Pelican roosting colony]…Captain Flinders was particularly struck with the appearance of one of these islands, on the surface of which were scattered the relics of a great number of trees, prostrated by some tremendous storm, or, as he conjectured, self-ignited by the friction of dead branches in a strong wind. This fact…suggested the catastrophe described at the close of the third Canto of the Poem.' Montgomery was a significant poet in his time, best known for his devotional verse and hymns (although twice imprisoned for sedition). The title work in the present volume is a pan-theistic celebration of the antipodean landscape, evoking an intriguing late-Romantic engagement with the distant colony. Flinders inspired very few poets, making this one of only a handful of works to derive directly from his voyage.

        Select portions of the Psalms of David

      Sydney: R. Howe, Government Printer, 1828. Duodecimo; a delightful copy, completely unsophisticated in its original Sydney binding of blind-tooled sheep, preserved in a quarter morocco book-form box. Sydney printing, presented by Governor Darling. An exceptional survivor from the early days of Sydney publishing: a presentation copy, from Governor Darling, of the first Church of England hymn-book printed in Australia, in its original Sydney binding. Robert Howe, who printed this, was born in 1795 and emigrated with his father George in 1800. Dissolute in his youth, he spent most of his formative years around the press, which in 1808 was still attached to Government House (Ferguson, The Howes and their Press, pp. 16-7). Robert was taken under the wing of the Reverend Ralph Mansfield, and became a Methodist of some standing. He took over as Government Printer after the death of his father George in 1821, and quickly set about improving the quality of Sydney printing as well as branching out into new publishing ventures: he started the first Australian magazine, and published grander works such as Tompson's Wild Notes from the Lyre of a Native Minstrel, still admired for its handsome design. His was a luckless career, with more than his fair share of the usual hurdles associated with a career in colonial printing: a long unresolved fight with the government over censorship, a stabbing by an aggrieved reader in 1822, a procession of libel suits through the decade, and a horse-whipping by William Redfern. Sir Ralph Darling was appointed as Governor of NSW in 1825, succeeding Sir Thomas Brisbane in the post. Darling's governorship coincided with the raising of the ecclesiastical status in the colony, which came about by the inclusion of the Archdeacon on the newly-formed Executive Council, and the establishment of the Church and School Corporation in 1826, of which Darling was president. Thus it is most appropriate that this hymn-book, which aimed to "remove some difficulties which have been experienced in the Church Psalmody in this part of the world" (preface) was presented by Governor Darling to Henry Dumaresq's wife, Elizabeth, and is inscribed "from Lt. Genl. Darling. - Govt. House - to Mrs. H. Dumaresq". Three of his wife's brothers had travelled with him to Australia, Edward, Henry and William Dumaresq. Edward travelled as far as Hobart with them, where he became surveyor-general. Henry and William Dumaresq came to Sydney to become his private secretary and civil engineer respectively. It is small wonder that Darling's term in office was marked by constant cries of nepotism. Such an association makes this a most desirable copy of a very rare Sydney printing.

        ILLUSTRATIONS OF BRITISH ENTOMOLOGY: A Synopsis of Indigenous Insects: Containing their Generic and Specific Distinctions; with an account of Metamorphoses, Times of Appearance, Localities, Food, and Economy, as far as Practicable.

      London, Baldwin and Cradock, 1828.THE EARLIEST APPEARANCE IN PRINT OF DARWIN'S WORDS WITH HIS NAME. ASSOCIATION COPY, 10 VOLUMES HAVE BEEN INSCRIBED BY THE FAMOUS AMERICAN ENTOMOLOGIST DR ASA FITCH. 12 volumes, complete set, comprising Volumes 1 - 7 of 'Mandibulata', and Volumes 1 - 4 of 'Haustellata', plus the supplementary volume published in 1846. FIRST EDITION,1828 - 1846, 8vos, approximately 245 x 150 mm, 9½ x 6 inches, 95 hand coloured engraved plates, 3350 pages including prelims, indexes and plate lists, bound in modern half calf over marbled sides, raised bands and gilt lettered leather labels to spines, new endpapers. Mandibulata: occasional very light foxing, small neat ink inscription and signature of Asa Fitch at top of title page in all volumes except Volume I, some pages lightly age - browned, 4 small grazed areas to 1 page in Volume V probably due to adhesion to tissue guard (now gone) resulting in loss of all or part of 11 words, facing plate not damaged, small repair to margin of final page in Volume V, no loss of text, small repair to lower edge of title page in Volume VII; Haustellata: same small inscription at top of title page to Volumes I, II and IV, title page and first 15 pages in Volume III browned at edges; contents and plates of all 12 volumes bright and clean apart from flaws mentioned. Bindings tight and firm. A very good set. Darwin's name occurs on about thirty records in the Beetles sections i.e. in the first five volumes of the Mandibulata. "Whilst he was an undergraduate at Cambridge, Darwin had sent records of insects that he had captured to James Francis Stephens and some of these were published in Illustrations of British Entomology. He refers to the pleasure that he got from seeing his name in print against his records of beetles in his autobiography..." See Freeman, The Works of Charles Darwin p.19 - 20. The very first printing of Darwin's name and a record occurs in Volume 2 of the Haustellata page 200 dated June 1 1829 where he records the occurrence of the common noctuid moth at 'Cambridge' . In the Appendix to Volume 2 of the Mandibulata dated June 15 1829 there are no less than 11 Darwin records. For example an entry on page 191 reads: "Page 36. Blethisa multipunctata. 'In great abundance near Cambridge, in 1829.' - C. Darwin, Esq." Darwin's first published work, whether in periodical literature or in a book did not appear until 1835: Letters on Geology. Dr Asa Fitch (1809 - 1879) has inscribed 10 of the volumes with his name and 'Salem, N. Y. June 22d 1855'. He trained as a medical doctor but abandoned medicine to pursue entomology. In 1838 he decided to start studying agriculture and entomology, at the same time collecting and studying insects for New York state. In 1854 he became the first professional Entomologist of New York State Agricultural Society (commissioned by the State of New York). This made him the first occupational entomologist in the United States. His vast studies of many insects helped scientists to solve some of the crop damage caused by insects. Many of his notebooks are now the property of the Smithsonian Institution. Fitch also discovered the Rodent Bot fly (Cuterebra emasculator) in 1856. Asa Fitch has made 36 very small neat ink notes on the margins of some plates; occasionally he has labelled an item on the plate itself always in a very small hand; he has also occasionally annotated or corrected the text. There is also a tipped in page with mounted printed text in French and a heading in ink by Fitch. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE. FURTHER IMAGES ON REQUEST. POSTAGE AT COST. A heavy set which will require extra postage.

        Autograph letter signed to R. Harlan

      1828-62. <p>Mott, Valentine (1785-1865). Autograph letter signed to Richard Harlan (1796-1843). New York, &#147;15th of 1st mo&#148; [i.e., January 15], 1820. 3pp. plus address. 230 x 189 mm. Tears along folds and lacuna where seal was broken expertly repaired, not affecting text.</p><p>Excellent letter to American physician and naturalist Richard Harlan from Valentine Mott, the most celebrated American surgeon of the first half of the nineteenth century. The letter discusses medical education at &#147;our infant University&#148;; i.e., Columbia College in New York, where Mott was professor of surgery. The letter provides intriguing information both about the administration of Columbia College&#146;s medical school and the college&#146;s reputation vis-à-vis its older, more established Philadelphia counterparts:</p><p>". . . Thou must know that our classes are not completely formed till about the New Year, and now I am enabled to furnish thee with the correct number of Pupils. . . . In our university those only matriculate who are pay pupils, these only we report as Students&#151;all young practitioners and Graduates, of whom there are many, attending the Lectures are not reported by us, and therefore are not included in this estimate. The number of Students is about 160 . . .</p><p>". . . [T]here is good ground for believing that our University will in time become useful to the country, reputable to the State, and profitable to the Professors&#151;But it requires time for this, as for the reputation and success of a private practitioner; these rewards are fortunately the fruits of talents and well directed industry. It cannot be expected by reasonable men that our school will rival your University [i.e., the University of Pennsylvania, the first medical school established in the United States], whose fame has long since been established and will in all probability long continue to maintain the ascendancy. But the names of those who have given to Philadelphia its great name as a School of Physic will not always give it its present claim . . . As far as my exertions can go, they shall contribute, and they shall be the most assiduous too, in creating at some future period a respectable and useful school of medical science and Surgery in our City."</p><p>Mott was a pioneer in vascular surgery: In 1818 he became the first to tie the innominate artery (see Garrison-Morton 2942), and in 1827 he performed the first successful ligation of the common iliac artery (see Garrison-Morton 2950). He was one of the first American surgeons to successfully amputate at the hip joint (see Garrison-Morton 4451.1) and to excise the jaw for necrosis (see Garrison-Morton 4447). &#147;During his career [Mott] performed nearly a thousand amputations, operated 150 times for stone in the bladder, and ligated forty large arteries. According to his former teacher, Sir Astley Cooper, he performed more major operations than any surgeon in history, up to his time&#148; (Dictionary of American Biography). He was the author of over twenty medical papers, and prepared the annotated and greatly expanded English translation of Velpeau&#146;s Nouveaux elements de médecine opératoire, published under the title New Elements of Operative Surgery (1845-47). Mott also spent many years teaching surgery at various medical institutions, primarily Columbia College and the College of Physicians and Surgeons in New York. He remained active in his profession until just before his death, and received more honors during his career than any other medical man in America at that time.</p><p>Mott&#146;s correspondent, Richard Harlan, was a pioneer in the study of comparative anatomy and vertebrate paleontology in the United States in the early 19th century. In 1820 the young Harlan, just two years out of medical school, was employed as a teacher of anatomy at Joseph Parrish&#146;s private medical school in Philadelphia, which is no doubt why he was interested in medical education. Harlan would go on to have a distinguished career: A member of several American scientific societies, including the American Philosophical Society, he was the author of a number books and articles on anatomy, physiology, paleontology and zoology, the most important being Fauna Americana (1825), the first comprehensive zoological survey of North America.</p>

        Nordisk Ornithologie, eller troværdige efter Naturen egenhændig tegnede, Stukne og colorerede Afbildninger af danske, færöiske, Grönlandske og islandske Fugle med tydsk og dansk Beskrivelse. Nordische ornithologie, oder getreue nach der Natur eigenhändig gezeichnete, gestochene und colorirte Abbildungen der dänischen, fähröischen, grönländischen und isländischen Vögel mit deutschen und dänischen Texte. + "Ny Følge" + "Nyeste Følge". 3 Bd.

      Kjöbenhavn, Tengnagel/ Jörgensen/ Schultz, 1828, 1832, 1835. Folio. (33x23 cm.). Indbundet i 3 samtidige, ensartede hldrbd. med rygtitel og rygforgyldning. Kapitæler og rygge lidt slidte. I nyere smuk beskyttelseskassette med forgyldt skindtitel. Kollationering: der foreligger tekst til alle 3 bind på dansk og tysk i 2 spalter. Bind 1, tekst: (64) pp. og incl. titelblad + "Systematisches Verzeichnis/ Systematisk Fortegnelse.." på (8) sider. (Anker anfører IV,(50) pp. og nævner ikke den Systematiske fortegnelse. Her er alle 60 håndkolorerede plancher. - Bind 2, tekst: (34) pp. (incl. dedikationsbladet til Adam Moltke) som beskriver planche 1-52. Her foreligger 52 plancher (1-7 og 9-53). (Anker anfører 60 plancher). - Bind 3, tekst: (28) pp. som beskriver planche 1-60. Her foreligger 59 smukke plancher (1-8 + 8, 9-34,36, 38-60). Nogle få plancher har tidligere været foldet og med noget slid. 3 plancher er beskåret, selve afbildingen dog intakt. Nogle plancher med lidt brunpletter.. Her foreligger en næsten komplet række af udgivelsen op til 1835 såvel tekst som plancher i original håndkolorering. Ifølge Anker skulle der være udkommet 180 plancher (her foreligger 171 plancher). Efter 1835 fortsatte Walter udgivelsen (indtil 1841), således, at der ialt blev udgivet 288 plancher. Et komplet sæt af dette største danske fugleværk har aldrig været udbudt til salg. Helms artikel i DOF 1939 nævner kun 1 komplet eksemplar, siden er der dog vist samlet 2 yderligere, ligesom Universitetsbiblioteket har fået sit ekspl. kompletteret. Walter var den første som realiserede tanken om et koloreret dansk fugleværk, det udkom under usikre forhold, blev tegnet, stukket og koloreret af Walter selv, og det var småt med subskribenter, ikke mere end 69, og der faldt sikkert flere fra i løbet af udgivelsens 14 år.A complete set of this, the graetest Danish ornithological work, has never been up for sale. The article by Helms in D.O.F., 1939, registers only one complete copy; later on two more should have been gathered though, and the Universitylibrary has likewise had their copy completed. Walter was the first to put the idea of a coulered Danish ornithological work into action. It was published under unsure cicumstances and was drawn, engraved and coloured by Walter himself. There were very few subscribers, no more than 69, and some of them most likely disappeared during the 14 years of publication.The copy at the British Museum (Nat. Hist.) has only 120 plates, -Wood p. 618 lists only 60 plates. - Nissen: "Helms kennt nur 1 vollst. Expl. und 15, die mehr als 1. Band enthalten."Anker No. 521 (the copy incomplete). - Wood p. 618. - Nissen No. 969. - Not in Zimmer

        Chart of part of New South Wales with plans of the harbours . Respectfully dedicated to John Oxley, Esq., Surveyor-General

      Joseph Cross, but sold by James Wyld, London 1828 - Large hand-coloured engraved map, 1180 x 650 mm., dissected and backed on linen as issued, the linen with a few stains but the printed surface very fresh; Ingleton bookplate, in the original marbled card slipcase showing some wear, but as issued with printed label completed in manuscript to front. With an inset depicting Port Phillip. One of the great maps of New South Wales: this very fine and handsome map is notable for a series of important inset charts including Moreton Bay, Port Jackson, and Port Phillip. One of the most consulted of any of the Australian maps of this era, it is dedicated to John Oxley, then Surveyor General of New South Wales. The London publisher Cross was responsible for any number of important publications relating to Australia in the 1820s and 1830s, and was perhaps the most influential promoter of the colonies at that time. This marvellous map is related to another first printed by Cross for the 1826 publication by James Atkinson, An Account of the State of Agriculture & Grazing in New South Wales, but such was the pace of exploration and settlement in this period that Cross first issued this significantly extended and more detailed map in 1827, and again with corrections in 1828 as here. Indeed, the map was not out of print for more than a decade, constantly revised to include the latest information. Any issue is now of some rarity, and copies in such fine condition are notably scarce, particularly complete with the original card sleeve in which it was issued. This copy was sold by James Wyld the elder of Charing Cross and has his printed label on the front; Wyld was the Geographer to the King. The small vignettes printed on the Atkinson version (thought to have been based on the work of John Lewin), are here replaced with important charts of all the main harbours: Moreton Bay, Port Macquarie, Port Stephens, Port Hunter, Broken Bay, Port Jackson, Botany Bay, Jervis Bay, Twofold Bay, Western Port, and Port Phillip. There is also an inset depiction of the entire Australian coastline. The map also prints a very detailed picture of the state of inland exploration, notably including the relatively recent discoveries of Hume and Hovell. Tooley knew this 1828 issue from a copy in his own collection. This is the Ingleton copy with shelf mark, noted in his catalogue as "extremely rare"

        Ölgemälde: Mädchen in friesischer Tracht beim Kirchgang.

      . Schönes Ölgemälde eines Mädchens in friesischer Tracht beim Kirchgang, in der Hand ein Gebetbuch haltend. Andreas Fritz ( *1828 in Mou bei Aalborg - 1906 ) hat das Gemälde unten rechts mit A.F. monogrammiert, Öl auf Leinwand, alt gerahmt. Bildmaß: 39,5 x 28,5 ( Höhe x Breite ) / Rahmenmaß: 45 x 33,5 cm . Undatiert, ca. um 1860 entstanden, wahrscheinlich als Fritz an Altarbildern jütländischer Kirchen arbeitete. In charakteristischer Manier der Kopenhagener Goldaltermaler ist das Mädchen dargestellt, in seinem nach innen gewandten Gesichtsausdruck spiegelt sich noch die spätbiedermeierliche Geisterhaltung wider. Von guter Erhaltung, leicht craquelliert, zum unteren Rand hin ein schwacher Kratzer auf dem Bild. Der Rahmen gering besotßen. >>Literatur u.a.: Thieme-Becker, Allgemeines Lexikon der bildenden Künstler, Band 12, Seite 505.<< ( Pic erhältlich / webimage available ).
