        The Kangaroos in the Collection of Earl Darnley, Cobham Park

      London: Thomas Kelly, 1 May, 1829. Engraving, 175 x 265 mm., trimmed inside the plate-mark on three sides, but the image complete including caption and imprint; a few marks, very good. William Bligh's kangaroos. Interesting early depiction of kangaroos brought to England and given to the private collection of the Earl of Darnley: although the plate was made in 1829, the actual animals were some of those brought back alive from Australia by William Bligh when he returned to England on the Hindostan after being ousted from the governorship in 1810. The animals were given to John Bligh, 4th Earl of Darnley (1767-1831), a British peer and cricketer; his family house Cobham Hall near Gravesend in Kent is one of the grandest houses in the county. William Bligh and the Earl were certainly known to each other: an 1805 letter from William Bligh written just before he left for New South Wales in 1805 is in the Mitchell Library (perhaps there was a Bligh family connection between the two?). The plate is taken from Robert Huish's The Wonders of the Animal Kingdom (1830), where it is noted that the kangaroos 'appeared for some time to endure the climate of Cobham Hall with every expectation of their being eventually naturalized; from some cause, however, not yet ascertained, they died a few months after their portrait was taken…'. Huish's note concludes with the comment that nonetheless 'some very fine specimens of them are still to be seen in the collection of his Majesty, at Windsor, and in some of the itinerant menageries.'.

        Ãœber die Vortheile der Unternehmung einer Eisenbahn zwischen der Moldau und Donau.

      Wien, Sollinger, im Februar 1829.. 4°. Mit 3 (1 gef.) Beilagen. 48 SS. OBr. (etw. fleckig u. gebräunt, Rücken mit zeitgenöss. Papierstreifen verstärkt).. Wurzbach V, 160 f. ÖBL I, 430.

        Samling af 50 smaae Landkort I Træsnit til Brug for Skolerne paa Landet . [Collection of 50 small maps in woodcut for the use of the schools in the country]

      [Denmark]: S.E. Holm, 1829. Small quarto, with 50 leaves of wood-engraved maps, handcoloured in outline; a very good copy in contemporary half calf, some wear to boards and extremities, slight worming at top of gutter barely affecting some of the plates, and some inoffensive early manuscript annotations. Charming world atlas for school children. A very rare Danish atlas for schools, the first such work published, with a wonderful double-page world map, and another plate depicting Australia and the Pacific. This simple but charming work was published by a Danish school teacher called Søren Eliasen Holm, who himself paid for the printing and publishing of the atlas. His main purpose was to give poor village children an idea about geography, and it was much republished in newer, often improved, editions. Not much is known about the enigmatic Holm, although the extraordinary and disturbing fact is recorded that he was banned from the education system in 1814 after he castrated himself to avoid having more children. As would be expected, many of the maps are devoted to Scandinavia and Europe, including 28 of various regions of Denmark and the Danish Islands. The atlas does include several attractive plates of the rest of the world: apart from the Australian map, there are also maps of individual European countries including Great Britain, France, and Turkey, as well as the continent of Africa, and the Americas (this last bound in upside down). Most of the maps are signed by Holm, and dated from 1818 to 1826; the Australian map is dated 1823. The atlas was released in numerous edition between 1819 and at least 1840, with the online catalogues of Det Kongelige Bibliotek recording a series of copies. The work is not, however, well known outside Denmark, with OCLC unable to list any copies of any edition.

        Narrative and Successful Result of a Voyage in the South Seas , performed by order of the Government of British India, to ascertain the actual fate of La Perouse's Expedition, interspersed with accounts of the religion, manners, customs and cannibal practices of the South Sea Islanders

      London: Hurst, Chance and Co, 1829. Two volumes, octavo, plates (two folding, one coloured), and a folding map; plates crisp, with one or two subtle reinforcements at folds; repair to title-page of volume two otherwise an excellent copy in half green morocco by Sangorski & Sutcliffe, spine banded and gilt. In the wake of the Pandora. The solution of the La Pérouse mystery: an excellent copy of the first edition in English. Forty years after the French explorer first disappeared, Peter Dillon, a sandalwood trader, called at the Solomons; when a silver sword guard was shown to him, he suspected that he might have accidentally discovered the solution of a mystery that had tormented the French for so long. He returned to India and persuaded the government of Bengal to sponsor an expedition. At Vanikoro he found many relics including a portion of the stern of the Boussole, ships' bells stamped 'Bazin m'a fait', monogrammed silver, metal fragments and mill stones known to have been aboard. One native had a glass piece from a thermometer in his nose. Dillon was made a Chevalier of the Legion d'Honneur, his expenses defrayed and granted a pension. His book was commercially successful, appearing in English and French editions promptly and eventually in a number of translations. Although Captain Peter Dillon is best known for his role in finding the wreck of La Pérouse's two vessels, the account also shows a passing interest in the voyages of the Bounty, and of the Pandora, and, especially in the region of the island of Rothuma, gives detailed notes on the charting done by Captain Edwards and published on an Arrowsmith chart.

        A Form of Prayer with Thanksgiving ... [bound with] A Charge, Delivered to the Clergy of the Archdeaconry of New South Wales

      Sydney: R. Mansfield, 1829 &, 1830. Octavo, two works bound together, neat repair to the gutter of the title-page of the first, the second work with a few spots; one set of the original plain blue wrappers bound in at rear, very good, in crushed blue morocco by Sangorski & Sutcliffe, gilt. Two rare Mansfield printings. Two very rare early Mansfield printings related to the Church in New South Wales, the first a humble petition on the fierce drought of the late 1820s, the second the first major address of William Grant Broughton, later the first Bishop of Australia. The Gazette under Robert Howe had produced the first Church of England hymn-book printed in Australia in 1828 and the first small work here is an important and topical companion, A Form of Prayer with Thanksgiving, to be used on Thursday, November 12, 1829… (Sydney, R. Mansfield, for the executors of R. Howe, 1829). As the title continues, this form of service was to be used in all the churches and chapels of New South Wales, 'in acknowledgment of the Mercy of Almighty God, in putting an end to the late Severe Drought, and in averting His threatened judgments from this Colony…'. The work was issued by command of Governor Darling himself, who had also been instrumental in sending out Charles Sturt, whose explorations were in no small part meant to provide relief from the drought that gripped the colony from 1826-29. In these difficult years Lake George completely receded and the Darling River stopped flowing, so it is little wonder that Darling had agreed to try and seek a heavenly intercession. The second work is Broughton's A Charge, delivered to the Clergy of the Archdeaconry of New South Wales, at the Primary Visitation… (Sydney, R. Mansfield, for the executors of R. Howe, 1830). This work is an interesting contribution to the religious disputes of the time, with Broughton giving a detailed and deeply personal account of the duties of the clergy in the colony. The original speech was delivered on 3 December 1829, less than two months after he had succeeded the incumbent Archdeacon, Thomas Hobbes Scott (the latter had become associated with Darling and was thus subject to relentless attacks by the Australian and the Monitor). It was in this address that Broughton sketched out his policy: 'The church would have a paternal concern for convicts, Aboriginals and settlers in the new areas, and a special responsibility for the organization and control of education with the financial and official backing of the state, for it was above all the national church, established in law, charged with the care of all subjects of the Crown, apostolic in its doctrine and government' (ADB).

        Liverpool and Manchester Railway. Report to the directors on the comparative merits of loco-motive and fixed engines, as a moving power

      Birmingham and London: R. Wrightson, J. Taytor and Priestley and Weale, 1829. Second Edition, Corrected. Cloth. Good. Second Edition, Corrected. Cloth. 8vo in 4s (225 × 150 mm), pp. vii, [1, blank], 9-46; lacking folding plate; ownership label of Michael Max to front free endpaper (no. 2578, shelf 3); somewhat toned, initial pages re-inforced, some spotting; good in modern red cloth, new endpapers. Second, corrected edition of Rastrick's report to the Liverpool and Manchester Railway Company which led to the Rainhill Trials.John Urpeth Rastrick (1780-1856) worked early in his career helping Richard Trevithick develop his ideas for the high pressure steam engine and went on to form Foster, Rastrick and Company with James Foster, manufacturing a wide range of products, including blast furnaces, rolling mills and steam locomotives. He left the company in 1831 (which dissolved) to work as a consultant engineer.In 1829, together with James Walker (1781-1862), Rastrick was invited by the Liverpool and Manchester Railway Company to undertake a report (the present work) on the comparative merits of fixed and locomotive engines as sources of traction for their nearly completed line. While the authors came out marginally in favour of fixed engines (a system of rope haulage from engines situated at regular intervals along the railway), their report was sufficiently ambiguous that the directors of the company decided to undertake a competition to see which was more economic. At the subsequent Rainhill Trials Stephenson';s locomotive engine (the Rocket) proved the best system (it was the only machine to finish the course), and was ultimately adopted.The first edition of Walker's report was published together with Rastrick's earlier in 1829 in an edition of 500 copies.Ottley 6402; Skempton 1103.

        Les Metamorphoses du jour

      Paris: Chez Bulla, 1829. - Exceedingly ScarceComplete With the Two Suppressed PlatesGRANDVILLE, J.J. (Illustrator). Les Metamorphoses du jour. Paris: Chez Bulla, 1829. The exceptionally rare first edition of this famous series of political caricatures complete with the suppressed plates. Oblong folio (9 3/4 x 13 3/16 in; 248 x 336 mm). One leaf of letterpress with the Preface by Achille Comte, and seventy-three hand-colored lithographed plates.Handsomely bound by DeVauchell (stamped signed) in half straight grain crimson morocco over patterned boards. Gilt lettered, ruled and elaborately tooled spine. A few of the plates with some light marginal foxing, a few plates with heavier foxing (plates nos 7; 8; 13; 14; 17; 20; 24; 26; 27; 39; 44). A handsomely bound and fine copy.Scarce in this, the first edition and exceptionally rare with the suppressed plates."This famous album, which established Granville's early stye of bitter burlesque, has become rare. Indeed, it is known to many of his admirers only through the greatly inferior album of seventy wood-engraved reproductions published by Harvard in 1854 Lust, gluttony, anger, and the other deadly sins are stigmatized, now with the blow of a hammer, now with the thrust of a stiletto; while the foibles and humors of mankind also receive due attention. Throughout the series Grandville's choice of beast-heads is inspired; and the force of his conceptions and the wit of his captions rarely falter. Occasionally, he produces a design of universal application that calls Goya to mind, as in the bat and owl creatures bewildered by the sunshine of 'The light that hurts them' (no. 12). Perhaps his most terrifying plate is 'Ménagerie (no. 67), which shows four prison cells. In the first are complacent commercial offenders, enjoying all the comforts of home; in the second violent criminals, sly or stupid; in the third murderers, one with a countenance of the utmost ferocity; in the forth, political prisoners, quiet and despondent Granville turned to direct political satire in his final plates, but the publication of his onslaughts on church ('Famille des scarabées' no. 72) and state ('Une bête féroce,' no. 73) was not permitted in France" (Ray).Vicaire V, 775-780.

        Liverpool and Manchester Railway. Report to the directors on the comparative merits of loco-motive & fixed engines, as a moving power

      London: John and Arthur Arch, 1829. Second Edition, Corrected. Quarter calf. Very good. Second Edition, Corrected. Quarter calf. 8vo (220 × 140 mm), pp. vii, [1, blank], 50; one folding plate; ownership label of Michael Max to front free endpaper (no. 2584, shelf 3); spotting to text throughout, and occasional light pencil annotations not affecting text; very good in modern quarter calf over marbled boards, new endpapers. Second, corrected edition, of James Walker's report for the Liverpool and Manchester Railway which led to the Rainhill Trials.James Walker (1781-1862) and John Urpeth Rastrick (1780-1856) were together commissioned by the directors of the Liverpool and Manchester railway in 1829 to report on the comparative merits of locomotive and fixed engines as sources of traction for nearly completed line. The Liverpool and Manchester Railway Company was founded on 24 May 1823 by Henry Booth, who became its secretary and treasurer. The initial survey work was conducted by William James, George Stephenson, and finally by George and John Rennie, with Charles Blacker Vignoles as surveyor.'James Walker] was one of the seven engineers who were invited to Killingworth Colliery in January 1825 by the Railway Committee of the Liverpool and Manchester Railway to observe experiments to be carried out with steam engines there. Others at Killingworth Colliery for the experiment included members of the Railway Commitee and the "experts" William Brunton, William Cubitt, George Stephenson, Philip Taylor and Nicholas Wood.'In 1827 he was asked by the Board of the Liverpool and Manchester Railway to report on railways in the north of England. It was Walker who suggested that the competition which later became known as the Rainhill Trial should take place.' (Dawn Smith, The biographical dictionary of Britain's railway personalities, organisations and events 1597-1923, Glebe Publications, Peterlee, Co. Durham, 2007, p. 784)'The report [the present work] while leaving to the side of fixed engines was far from decisive. It was to the effect that if it was desired to make the railway complete at once, the stationary engine was best, but if, on the other hand, it was preferred to proceed by degrees and proportion the power to the demand, locomotives should be employed, with fixed engines for the inclines ...'The result of considering the report was that the directors still postponed their decision, but resolved in the meantime to offer a prize of £500 for a locomotive engine "which shall be a decided improvement on those now in use, as respects the consumption of smoke, increased speed, adequate power and moderate weight."' (Dendy Marshall, One hundred years of railways, London, Midland and Scottish Railway Company, 1930, p. 13)The first edition of Walker's report was published together with Rastrick's earlier in 1829 in an edition of 500 copies.Ottley 6402; Skempton 1715.

Forty years after the French explorer first disappeared, Peter Dillon, a sandalwood trader, called at the Solomons; when a silver sword guard was shown to him, he suspected that he might have accidentally discovered the solution of a mystery that had tormented the French for so long. He returned to India and persuaded the government of Bengal to sponsor an expedition. At Vanikoro he found many relics including a portion of the stern of the Boussole, ships' bells stamped 'Bazin m'a fait', monogrammed silver, metal fragments and mill stones known to have been aboard. One native had a glass piece from a thermometer in his nose. Dillon was made a Chevalier of the Legion d'Honneur, his expenses defrayed and granted a pension. His book was commercially successful, appearing in English and French editions promptly and eventually in a number of translations. Although Captain Peter Dillon is best known for his role in finding the wreck of La Pérouse's two vessels, the account also shows a passing interest in the voyages of the Bounty, and of the Pandora, and, especially in the region of the island of Rothuma, gives detailed notes on the charting done by Captain Edwards and published on an Arrowsmith chart.

        Samling af 50 smaae Landkort I Træsnit til Brug for Skolerne paa Landet . [Collection of 50 small maps in woodcut for the use of the schools in the country]

      S.E. Holm, [Denmark] 1829 - Small quarto, with 50 leaves of wood-engraved maps, handcoloured in outline; a very good copy in contemporary half calf, some wear to boards and extremities, slight worming at top of gutter barely affecting some of the plates, and some inoffensive early manuscript annotations. Charming world atlas for school children. A very rare Danish atlas for schools, the first such work published, with a wonderful double-page world map, and another plate depicting Australia and the Pacific. This simple but charming work was published by a Danish school teacher called Søren Eliasen Holm, who himself paid for the printing and publishing of the atlas. His main purpose was to give poor village children an idea about geography, and it was much republished in newer, often improved, editions. Not much is known about the enigmatic Holm, although the extraordinary and disturbing fact is recorded that he was banned from the education system in 1814 after he castrated himself to avoid having more children. As would be expected, many of the maps are devoted to Scandinavia and Europe, including 28 of various regions of Denmark and the Danish Islands. The atlas does include several attractive plates of the rest of the world: apart from the Australian map, there are also maps of individual European countries including Great Britain, France, and Turkey, as well as the continent of Africa, and the Americas (this last bound in upside down). Most of the maps are signed by Holm, and dated from 1818 to 1826; the Australian map is dated 1823. The atlas was released in numerous edition between 1819 and at least 1840, with the online catalogues of Det Kongelige Bibliotek recording a series of copies. The work is not, however, well known outside Denmark, with OCLC unable to list any copies of any edition. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Maw, a Royal Navy Officer, began his journey in the Andes and navigated almost the full length of the Amazon river where he made detailed soundings of its depth. Little description of natural history or surroundings. Borba 541. Quoting the Preface: "Having crossed the Continent of South America, from the shores of the Pacific to the Atlantic, by a route little known; having descended the Mara?on, the largest river of the world, for about three thousand miles; and, having been seized as a prisoner by the MIlitary Commandant of a district in Brazil, it became my duty, on my arrival in England, to report what had occurred at the Admiralty. I did so; mentioning at the same time, that I had some rough notes of a Journal; these notes I was directed to arrange, and sent in. ?Whilst occupied in preparing my Journal for the Admiralty, some friends recommended my publishing; and feeling that, however deficient I may be in the qualifications necessary to become a good author, it is possible my Journal may contain some information that may be of service to the public,--and, perhaps, tend to the improvement of the countries and the wretched people amongst whom I passe[d].

        Autograph letter to John Wilson Croker with anecdotes of King George III, 1829

      - Two fine anecdotes of Kings George III and IV recorded by Princess Augusta and reported to John Wilson Croker by her Bedchamber Woman - autograph letter signed ("S.W") from Sophia Wynyard to Croker enclosed within her copy of her mistress's "memoranda": 2pp. 8vo, [no place given], 17 May [1829], within 3pp. 4to, [n.p.], [17 May 1829]. The outer sheet slightly torn, with small loss (not of text) at seal; addressed "/Private/ The Right Honble John Wilson Croker Admiralty". "The late King having heard of Mr Fox's death [Charles James Fox, 1749-1806] expressed his regret on that account to The King when they met at dinner - His Majesty immediately replied; I am truly sorry[.] Mr Fox's conduct to me during the last eight months, has certainly obliterated from my memory the misery he occasioned me for 23 years." Princess Augusta "sometimes made memm of any thing that struck her particularly", reports the writer to John Wilson Croker (1780-1857), Secretary to the Admiralty since 1809 but a consummate contemporary historian, "and has allowed me to copy two of them for you upon condition that you do not name the having received them from her" - otherwise "it might get her into a scrape". Her second anecdote relates to Edmund Burke (1729-1797). "When King George the 3d and Queen Charlotte heard of the death of young Mr Burke [Richard Burke, 1758-1794, son of Edmund], they desired Mr de Luc [Jean-André Deluc, 1727-1817] to write and enquire in their names after his afflicted friends. The next summer Mr and Mrs Burke came to visit Mr de Luc at Windsor from Beaconsfield and when walking on the South Terrace, they were met by The King and Queen . . ." Burke expressed his gratitude for their "benevolent recollections" of him and his wife in their grief - "I prayed God to bless you and The Queen for it, and I repeat it again now, may God bless you both" - and the King replied, "I know how to feel for you having lost two dear boys, but yours was the heaviest blow, for in your Son you lost a friend also." "Then," records Princess Augusta, "His Majesty added[,] I have read your Pamphlet on the French Revolution, it does great credit to your Heart and Head, and I shall read it again and again with delight." Princess Augusta Sophia (1768-1840) was the sixth child and second daughter of King George III (1738-1820), and a younger sister of George IV (1762-1830). Sophia or Sophy Wynyard (1774-1844), daughter of Lt-Gen William Wynyard, one of George III's equerries, served as Bedchamber Woman to Princess Augusta until her death; in 1841 she was granted a Civil List pension of £200 p.a. - "In consideration of the long and faithful service rendered by her to the Royal Family, as well as her impoverished circumstances"; she died at Kensington Palace three years later.
