        Album de la jeunesse.

      Gide Fils, circa, Paris 1830 - Oblong quarto, with 60 engravings; some foxing, but a beautiful copy in original boards, professionally restored at the hinges, ex libris Paul Gavault. A very rare and beautiful French children's book, with wonderful Australian plates including six based closely on Clark's Foreign Field Sports. This work is not recorded by Ferguson, nor by Muir, and this copy belonged at one time to Paul Gavault, editor of the Gumuchian catalogue of children's books, and has his bookplate. Legrand's Album was a very fine production, and a relatively early one for books of this type; the chapters on natural history, whaling (with four plates), botany, ethnography, geography, and minerals, are profusely illustrated with 60 full-page engravings, including a double-hemisphere world map with geological features in the lower margin, and an astronomical chart with a pretty volvelle showing the earth orbiting the sun. Roughly a third of the plates, including six Australian scenes of Aborigines hunting and fishing, are drawn from J.H. Clark's Foreign Field Sports, originally published in London several years earlier, and it is evident that Clark's original descriptions were also used in translation in the accompanying letterpress.

        The Little Enquirer. Or, Instructive Conversations for Children from Five to Six

      London: Harvey and Darton, 1830. 16mo, vii 76pp, 4 pp advertisements, engraved frontispiece, folding map of the hemispheres, and five other engraved plates, all hand coloured; attractive original marbled boards rebacked with green sheep, gilt title, a little scuffed but very good. Rare: an attractive item of juvenile literature with reference to New Holland and including an intriguing plate and description of the wombat, ultimately derived from David Collins' Account of the English Colony, as well as a charming folding double-hemisphere map with an odd shaped New Holland and Botany Bay. Written as a series of conversations between mother and child, the work provides a remarkable perspective of the colony at the time: 'people who steal or do wicked things in this country [England], are sometimes sent there, away from all their friends, as a punishment, and there they are made to work hard…'. The attractive hand-coloured plate depicting a wombat is another highlight. A section of the accompanying text reads: 'I have here a drawing for you, of a curious animal called a wombat, which was discovered in an island close to New Holland. It is about the size of a large dog.' 'What an ugly looking animal! How was it caught?' 'Why, the man who saw it ran after it, and as it does not run very fast he soon caught it, and lifting it up laid it upon it back across his arm, like a little child.' Like the plate, the spurious assumption that the wombat is a slow beast also derives from the text of Collins' work: rather, the wombat is said to reach speeds of around 40 km/h, near enough to the peak speed of Usain Bolt. Quaker publishers William Darton and Joseph Harvey were well known for juvenile literature, a genre which grew greatly in the first half of the twentieth century. They also published anti-slavery literature and the present volume reflects their abolitionist sympathies: 'It signifies very little what our faces are, if we are good, and do our duty.' Copies of this work are uncommon. Despite having some Australian content and interest, it was not known to Ferguson, although a copy is now recorded in the Mitchell Library.

        Voyage aux Iles de la Mer du Sud , en 1827 et 1828, et Rélation de la Découverte du Sort de La Pérouse

      Paris: Pillet, 1830. Two volumes, octavo, three lithographic plates (two folding) and chart of the island of Mannicolo; a little foxing yet excellent, unopened in original green printed wrappers, housed in folding cloth case. A very appealing copy of the first French edition of the voyage which solved the riddle of La Pérouse, unopened in the original printed wrappers. Forty years after the disappearance of La Pérouse, Peter Dillon, a sandalwood trader, called at the Solomon Islands. 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 decades. 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 islander (shown here on a folding plate) had a glass piece from a thermometer in his nose. In recognition of his discovery Dillon was made a Chevalier of the Légion d'Honneur, his expenses defrayed and he was granted a pension. His book was commercially successful, appearing in English and French editions promptly and eventually in a number of translations. Aside from the startling discovery of the fate of La Pérouse, Dillon's narrative is a classic account of the south Pacific in the 1820s. Hocken describes the author as 'a splendid specimen of a wild Irishman and seaman' and his narrative reflects the excitement and dangers of a sole trader in the south Pacific during this era. It is rich in descriptions of Australia and New Zealand, where Dillon was active as a trader and entrepreneur for many years. The fine and dramatic plates are reproduced from the first English edition of 1829, and were prepared by Godefroy Englemann who developed the process of chromolithography. Interestingly, the publisher Pillet also issued the official account of the Freycinet voyage, and that work is advertised here in the publisher's notice at the end of the second volume.

        LETTERS ON THE WEST INDIA QUESTION; addressed to the Right Honourable Sir George Murray, G.C.B., M.P. colonial secretary, &c. &c. by Presbyter. Author inscribed.

      London, T. and G. Underwood, 1830.FIRST EDITION 1830, INSCRIBED BY THE AUTHOR, 8vo, approximately 220 x 135 mm, 8½ x 5½ inches, pages: vi, (2), 9 - 124, LACKING 15 PAGES OF AUTHOR'S NOTES AFTER THE END OF THE TEXT, attractive contemporary binding in full calf, decorative gilt border and rules to covers, skilfully rebacked with original backstrip laid on, gilt ruled border around lettering on spine, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers. A few minor marks to covers, spine a touch darkened, lettering very slightly rubbed, corners just very slightly worn, armorial bookplate of Hardy Bertram McCall and a tiny early binder's ticket (Dumfries) on front pastedown, an occasional pale spot to margins. A very good copy, lacking the author's notes as mentioned. A few copies were issued without the notes, possibly bound up as presentation copies before the notes were ready. The inscription on a blank following the front endpaper reads: "Miss Hardy From her Affectionate friend The Author - Ruthwell Manse, 22d September 1830." Rev. Henry Duncan (1774 - 1846) was a famous Scotsman, rector of Ruthwell a village and parish on the Solway Firth between Dumfries and Annan in Dumfries and Galloway. He was a great philanthropist and visionary, transforming the wretched lives of his parishioners by innovative schemes to restore their independence and dignity. Above all in 1810 he founded the first viable and efficient Savings Bank in a small building in Ruthwell which proved so successful that it was copied all over the country and he was known as the Father of the Savings Bank. He was also a passionate abolitionist and in our book he makes an attack on those British colonists in the West Indies who were ignoring the anti - slavery law which had been passed in 1807 and he also argues the case for the education of slaves. Sir George Murray to whom the letters are addressed was a was a Scottish soldier, a British Army officer and politician who at the time Duncan's book was published was Secretary of State for War and the Colonies.

        Walker's Critical Pronouncing Dictionary, and Expositor of the English Language

      Belfast: Simms & M'Intyre, 1830. Octavo, fine in contemporary gilt-ruled diced russia, spine in raised bands, expert repairs to front joint, a very attractive copy. From the Library of a Founding Father of South Australia. An attractive copy of a phonetic dictionary from the library of George Fife Angas, with his signature in full to the front endpaper. Angas (1789-1879) was chairman of the South Australian Company and a pivotal figure in the foundation and settlement of the colony. In 1850 he emigrated to South Australia and settled in the Barossa where he was soon elected a representative in the Legislative Council. His son, George French Angas, travelled widely throughout Australia and New Zealand working as a topographic artist, later publishing important lithographic albums of his work. In addition to his important role in Australian history, George Fife Angas was involved in a number of other benevolent schemes and missionary projects, including early missions to the Aborigines of South Australia. Speculation in the Honduras mahogany trade alerted Angas to the abuses of the West Indian slave-trade and in the early 1820's he lent his support, and then considerable resources, to the prominent abolitionists William Wilberforce and Zachary Macaulay. Angas died in 1879 in the Barossa settlement of Angaston, so named in his honour. From the Collection of Robert Edwards.

        The Present State of Australia; a Description of the Country, its Advantages and Prospects, with reference to Emigration: and a particular account of the manners, customs, and conditions of its aboriginal inhabitants

      London: Smith, Elder and Co, 1830. Octavo, in half red morocco by Sangorski & Sutcliffe. Important account of NSW Aborigines in the 1820s. First edition: an uncommonly fine copy of an influential account of the Australian colonies, and one of the most important early works devoted to the Aborigines of New South Wales. Dawson, a friend of John Macarthur Jnr., was appointed the Chief Agent of the Australian Agricultural Company in 1825, and over the following three years led various expeditions in remote New South Wales. In this account of his travels he discusses agricultural and pastoral activity throughout the continent and gives a good description of Moreton Bay in its earliest years. However, while written in the style of an emigration guide, Dawson's real interest is quite clearly in the Aboriginal tribesmen and women he had met during his extensive inland travels, and his work is an exceptional and very early eyewitness account of the Aborigines of Sydney, Newcastle, and most particularly Port Stephens.

        He mau Himeni Hawaii: he mea hoolea'i i ke Akua mau, ia Iehova

      Oahu: Na na Misionari I Pai, 1830. Duodecimo, 108 pages, dusted and a little foxed, neat stamp to verso of title-page; a good copy in modern quarter buckram over paper boards, leather spine label. An attractive and early work printed at the famous Mission Press in Oahu: the title translates as "Hawaiian Hymns, praising the true God, Jehovah." The first press in Hawaii had been set up by Elisha Loomis in 1822, and although titles were printed in very large print runs, surviving examples from the first decade of Hawaiian printing are now very scarce. This is the fifth edition of this work, which includes 100 hymns, numbered in Roman numerals. Although reset, the work closely follows the fourth edition of 1828, which was the first to include 100 hymns (see Forbes 692). Hiram Bingham - who was repsonsible for the translations into Hawaiian - had written of the fourth edition that these 'are partly translations of favorite hymns in use in our churches, partly paraphrases or translations from select passages of scripture poetry and partly original, intended to bring home the invitations, doctrines and duties of the Gospel, to exhibit the character of God, the beauty and excellence of the Redeemer and in various forms to express the feelings of piety in the language of penitence, faith, hope, joy, gratitude, praise, supplication and adoration.'.

        The Friend of Australia; or, a Plan for exploring the Interior , and for carrying on a survey of the whole continent of Australia

      London: Hurst, Chance and Co, 1830. Octavo, with a large folding map and five double-page handcoloured aquatint plates; a very good copy in early brown half calf, morocco spine label chipped, expertly rebacked with most of original spine laid down, an appealing copy from the library of Henry White of Belltrees with his bookplate. The delights of inland exploration. Scarce first edition of this eccentric but significant proposal for the exploration of the Australian interior, the supreme monument to the speculative geography of the 1820s and 1830s. Maslen, a retired English lieutenant who had served in India, presents an ideal of exploration including the discovery of a fertile and accessible land in the centre of Australia, and proposes idealised settlements there, all absurdly impossible but all lovingly described and illustrated on the map and plates. Maslen's discussion of his proposed expedition into the interior includes surmises about the probable nature of the local tribes, the types of flora and fauna, and the advantages of the camel in exploration. He goes into great detail regarding the design of new communities for the inland, built on principles of order and diversity. It is an extensive work, its glory the large imaginary map of the Australian continent, with a vast inland sea and 'The Great River, or, The Desired Blessing', whose delta enters the sea on the north coast. One of the beautiful series of plates shows the plan of his new townships while another proposes a flag for New South Wales. As it happens, it is also an important text in the question of European interaction with the Aboriginal tribes, not least because of Maslen's extensive but lunatic notions for their education and radical assimilation: he hopes that he can achieve this through his quite serious plan to educate Aboriginal children in Madras. Maslen also includes an interesting list of books on Australian voyages that he recommends, from Dampier to Flinders (noting of the latter that there have been so many requests that 'I think it would answer the purpose of any publisher to re-print a facsimile edition of it…'). In fact the book is so replete with practical advice on every subject from cannibalism to a colonial aristocracy that it makes a curiously apt introduction to the whole subject of Australian inland exploration. Only 250 copies were printed (so states a Smith, Elder advertisement of 1833) but even this small edition did not sell and a proportion of the edition was converted into a re-issue in 1836, with new title-page and preface.

        Alfred Dudley; or, The Australian Settlers

      London: Harvey & Darton, 1830. Duodecimo, with an engraved frontispiece and three plates; small ink stain on front endpaper, else a very good copy, in the original quarter red roan with marbled boards, mild wear to extremities. First edition: considered the first novel of Australia. This is an exemplary copy of the very scarce first edition, bound with the advertisements in the publisher's roan-backed marbled boards of the first issue. In the novel, the genteel Dudleys are forced to emigrate, whereupon they purchase several hundred acres on the Hunters River, where they grow crops and tend their "pet Merinos" which they had brought from France. Much of the action centres on their interaction with some of the local tribesmen and women, and the eponymous Alfred becomes particularly close to a small boy called "Mickie", adopting him as a sort of voluntary personal valet and assistant. At one point Mickie acquires an officer's cast-off uniform, the whole ensemble geared for comic effect (as the accompanying plate makes clear). There is illness, and adversity, and a lively description of the dangers of a kangaroo hunt, but on the whole the European settlers are enchanted with New South Wales. "This tale for juveniles is founded on the circumstances of a gentleman, with his highly-educated son, settling in Australia, and there for a long period cheerfully submitting to all the hardships and privations attendant on such a situation. The author's knowledge of Australian natural history and ethnology is chiefly drawn from The Present State of Australia, by Robert Dawson, late Chief Agent to the Australian Agricultural Company." (Ferguson). At one stage tentatively attributed to William Howitt, in his addenda Ferguson made a firmer attribution to Sarah Porter, on the basis of a trade list of Charles Knight. Ferguson also lists a frontispiece and two plates, for a total of three, rather than the four present here.

        Designs for Ornamental Villas

      London: James Carpenter, 1830. Quarto, lithograph title and 96 lithograph plates; possibly lacking additional letterpress title (?), lithograph title foxed and minor foxing to some early plates, but otherwise a very attractive copy in modern quarter calf. Third edition of this classic architectural pattern book. Robinson (1776-1858) was a prolific and versatile designer of country mansions and picturesque cottages. In the present work he provides sixteen designs, some of which were executed, for twelve residences, two lodges, a garden house, and stables. "The range of styles represented perhaps was the most eclectic in British architectural literature to date" (Archer): Swiss, Grecian, Palladian, Old English, Castellated, Ancient Manor House, Modern Italian, Anglo-Norman, Henry VII, Elizabethan, Ancient Timber, and Tuscan. Each design is illustrated in plan, elevation, and 'Scenic View'. Most of the scenic views were drawn on stone by J.D. Harding and printed on India paper. Of course Robinson's promotion of the cottage orné proved influential in Australia, where it became a popular architectural style with colonial architects (see Broadbent, The Australian Colonial House, p. 354).

        Tableau Comparitif des Races et des Costumes . Des principaux Peuples des cinq parties du Monde

      Paris: Basset, circa, 1830. Engraving, 540 x 710mm.; in fine condition, mounted and framed. The peoples of Oceania depicted for French savants. A very scarce tableau comparing various races of the five parts of the world. The tableau is composed of sections covering Europe, Asia, Oceania, America and Africa with a detailed list of the inhabitants recorded. The Oceania section includes New Holland, New Zealand and Hawaii. In the eighteenth century an interest in ethnography took a central place in the lives of educated Europeans as science and world history were not yet too esoteric and specialised for the average person to understand. Maritime discovery was enthusiastically followed by both the French and English nations and the savants of both countries had a keen intellectual curiosity in the ethnography of the newly-discovered Pacific islands. Oceania is represented by a man from New Holland in a striking pose and with his body painted, holding a club. The brief note in the key merely comments on the fact that the coast of this immense island has a sterile aspect, and that the inhabitants are of the deepest black with tough hair, lanky limbs and a "horrible" figure ("noir fuligineux, à cheveux crépus, à menb. grêles à figure Hideuse"). Of the New Zealanders the main point in the accompanying note is that they are cannibals similar in appearance to Tahitians, and for the Sandwich Islanders Perrot notes that seven of the main eleven islands in the group are inhabited, that the group was discovered by Captain Cook, and that the character of the Hawaiians is very gentle ("extrêmement doux"). There are besides men from Vanikoro (where La Pérouse was killed), a "cannibal" from Ombay, and several others. The publisher Basset was known for publishing engravings and papiers peints, while the work was prepared by Perrot, here designated with the very grand-sounding title Ingénieur Géographe, a term meaning surveyor or map-maker. Although not dated, this would appear to have been issued some time around 1830 (as the reference to La Pérouse and Vanikoro would suggest). We have not seen this image previously so can assume it is quite rare in the market.

        PRINCIPLES OF GEOLOGY, Being an Attempt to Explain the Former Changes of the Earth's Surface by Reference to Causes Now in Operation.

      London, John Murray, 1830.Volumes I and II only of 3, BOTH FIRST EDITIONS 1830 and 1832 (Volume III appeared in 1833). "W(illiam) L(onsdale) from the author" inscribed on half - title to Volume I and "Lieut. Lonsdale from the author" on front endpaper to Volume II (see below). 8vos, approximately 215 x 135 mm, 8½ x 5½ inches, Volume I: engraved frontispiece, 2 maps, 1 folding, 1 half page, 1 half page engraved view and 33 woodcuts in the text; Volume II: hand coloured aquatint frontispiece, folding hand coloured map, 8 woodcuts in the text, pages: Volume 1, xvi, 511 including index plus 17 page Murray catalogue dated June 1830; Volume 2, xii, 330, including index plus 16 page catalogue dated December 1831, half - title in Volume I, not called for in Volume II. Handsomely bound in modern sdark green full morocco, single gilt ruled border with inset blind stamped border, gilt raised bands to spines, 5 gilt framed compartments with gilt motif, gilt lettering, new endpapers. Frontispiece in Volume 1 lightly spotted, plate 3 with 2 images lightly browned and slighly foxed, light offsetting on page 1 from folding map in Volume II, very occasional small pale mark to margins in both volumes, otherwise very good clean tight pair. This work has been called the most important scientific book ever. A stunning claim, but certainly Charles Lyell's Principles of Geology, published in 1830, shook prevailing views of how Earth had been formed. His book was an attack on the common belief among geologists and other Christians that unique catastrophes or supernatural events - - such as Noah's flood - - shaped Earth's surface. Lyell argued that the formation of Earth's crust took place through countless smaller changes occurring over long periods of time, all according to known natural laws. His proposal was that the forces shaping the planet have operated continuously throughout its history. He also wrongly assumed that these causes must have acted only with the same intensities now observed, which would rule out asteroid impacts and the like. Darwin read Lyell's landmark text while on the Voyage of the Beagle, and was much inspired by it. His own experiences during the voyage backed up Lyell's theories of how the shifting crust of the Earth was one of these long - acting, gradual, shaping forces. The inscription in Volume I is possibly by Charles Lyell, that in Volume II is in a different hand, believed to be that of John Murray's clerk. William Lonsdale (1794 - 1871) became a serious geologist and palaeontologist after a career in the army which ended in 1829. He wrote several papers on fossiles and won the Wollaston medal in 1846 for his research on the various kinds of fossil corals. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE.

        Globe Artificiel et Mécanique a l'Usage du Petit Geographe

      Paris: circa, 1830. A collapsible engraved and handcoloured globe in six gores (170 mm. tall); protected by the original lithographed portfolio, 8 folding pages of text; with loose double-sided engraved and hand-coloured card 'Mécanisme du Glode Artificiel'; some browning and becoming frayed along the fold of the portfolio, inoffensive library stamp to interior of one of the gores, a very good and attractive example. Charming collapsible globe with accompanying booklet by the Frenchman Augustin Legrand. Legrand was active in the 1820s and 1830s and made delightful children's books, educational globes and friezes. He published any number of these educational books and novelties, the earliest dating from around 1800. His work is known for its graceful composition, as can be seen in his Planisphere suivant la projection de Mercator (circa 1830) now held in the National Library. These fragile globes are rare survivals, but were a popular educational toy of the period. The mapping of the globe is surprisingly accurate, with the various zones and also the ecliptic marked. Off the coast of New Zealand is marked the antipodes of Paris, and the map of "Nouvelle Hollande" is scattered with the older Dutch place names, but also "Botany Bay" and the unusual "T. de Grant" for the area that was initially called in French the Terre Napoleon after the territorial claims made in the wake of the Baudin voyage. The accompanying folding booklet contains a good description of the workings of "Le Globe artificial", including an overview of the basic components of geography (such as the various zones, the zodiac, and so on). There is also a five-page "Description de la Terre", with notes on Asia, Africa, Europe, America and Oceania ('celle-ci est accompagnée d'une quantité d'îles que l'on désigne sous le nom d'Océanie'). The text concludes with some spruiking for other relevant titles available at the publishers. There is also a separate hand-coloured card with, on one side, diagrams and a description of the "Mécanisme du Globe artificiel", and on the other, of the "Zodiaque écliptique.

        New Readings of Old Authors

      [1830-35]. first edition. Two Hundred and Twenty Humorous Hand-Colored LithographsDepicting Shakespearean Quotations[SEYMOUR, Robert, illustrator]. New Readings of Old Authors. London: Effingham Wilson and Charles Tilt, 1830-1835.Twenty-two (of twenty-six) volumes, twelvemo (5 7/8 x 3 5/8 inches; 149 x 91 mm.). Each volume with printed title and ten hand-colored lithographed plates illustrating quotations, mainly from Shakespeare’s plays, in a humorous manner. Late nineteenth-century green polished calf by Rivière & Son. Gilt triple-rule border on covers with gilt corner ornaments, gilt spines, tooled in compartments, with red and brown morocco labels, gilt board edges and inner dentelles, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt, others uncut. Each volume expertly and almost invisibly rebacked with the original spines and spine labels. The first four leaves of Othello have some light damp staining on the lower margin. A remarkable and near fine run of an extremely rare set. No complete set has appeared at auctionsince 1946 and OCLC shows just four complete sets in institutions worldwide (Huntingdon Library; San Diego Christian College; Simpson University Library; Texas A &M University, San Antonio).“Published between 1830 and 1835; the fact that the market was held for twenty-six parts is a pointer to its popularity, and, as such, can be regarded as illustrating the English idea of humour in the 1830’s, a taste that demanded puns, play on words, sentences twisted to an opposite and absurd meaning, and the whole depicted in knockabout pictorial art.Despite the enormous output of Seymour, very little of his work was coloured, his illustrations being mostly woodcuts or etchings. It will be remembered that Seymour originated the idea of a series of Cockney sporting sketches to be published in monthly parts. The idea was taken up by Chapman and Hall, who engaged Dickens to write the letterpress. From this grew the famous Pickwick Papers” (Abbey, Life).This set contains Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, Byron’s The Giaou, Richard the Third, Merchant of Venice, Othello, The Tempest, King Henry VIII, King Lear, Coriolanus, Midsummer-Night’s Dream, Taming the Shrew, King Henry IV—Part 1, King Henry IV—Part 11, King Henry V,  Antony & Cleopatra, Titus Andronicus, Pericles, Troilus & Cressida, Cymbeline, As You Like It, Love’s Labour Lost, King Richard II. Although only twenty-two of twenty-six titles are present, each is complete in itself and this is a remarkable run. (The titles not present are Macbeth, Hamlet, Julius Caesar, and King John). Opinions:"The plan of this Work is to burlesque sundry quotations from favourite Plays, and it is well done: the Plates are admirable specimens of comicality. The Apothecary's direction Romeo, 'Put this in any liquid thing you will,' has been treated by the waggish artist, as a huge fat man-cook consigning a poor kitten, held by the tongs, to the tender mercies of a scullion."--- Omnibus."This is a very clever little Work, and it is not often our good fortune to meet with so much talent and whimsicality as is here displayed: the quotations are in general well selected, and the illustrations, by SEYMOUR, are full of wit and humour." --- Traveller."Oh that our readers could but look at these 'Readings,' for how can we 'describe the undescribable.' We engage to say that this little Work will do more in giving a 'tone and energy to those organs whose office it is to digest and assimilate food, oxygenate the blood, and regulate its circulation,' than anything we have yet seen." --- Sheffield Iris."This very clever and neatly got up series of Sketches, shews how the finest passages of SHAKESPEARE and BYRON, which ought to draw tears of sympathy from the eye, may be so illustrated as to make tears trickle down our cheeks, as a relief to laughter, from the strange turn our ideas take on examining these amusing illustrations." --- Elgin Courier."This Work improves as it progresses --- every fresh number that is issued making increased demands on our risibility. the number before us (the 8th) is indeed redolent in comicality. Shakespeare is here travestied with a felicity that would have added laurels to the comic genius of a HOGARTH." --- Sunderland Herald.Abbey, Life, 320.

        Voyage aux Iles de la Mer du Sud , en 1827 et 1828, et Rélation de la Découverte du Sort de La Pérouse

      Pillet, Paris 1830 - Two volumes, octavo, three lithographic plates (two folding) and chart of the island of Mannicolo; a little foxing yet excellent, unopened in original green printed wrappers, housed in folding cloth case. A very appealing copy of the first French edition of the voyage which solved the riddle of La Pérouse, unopened in the original printed wrappers. Forty years after the disappearance of La Pérouse, Peter Dillon, a sandalwood trader, called at the Solomon Islands. 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 decades. 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 islander (shown here on a folding plate) had a glass piece from a thermometer in his nose. In recognition of his discovery Dillon was made a Chevalier of the Légion d'Honneur, his expenses defrayed and he was granted a pension. His book was commercially successful, appearing in English and French editions promptly and eventually in a number of translations. Aside from the startling discovery of the fate of La Pérouse, Dillon's narrative is a classic account of the south Pacific in the 1820s. Hocken describes the author as 'a splendid specimen of a wild Irishman and seaman' and his narrative reflects the excitement and dangers of a sole trader in the south Pacific during this era. It is rich in descriptions of Australia and New Zealand, where Dillon was active as a trader and entrepreneur for many years. The fine and dramatic plates are reproduced from the first English edition of 1829, and were prepared by Godefroy Englemann who developed the process of chromolithography. Interestingly, the publisher Pillet also issued the official account of the Freycinet voyage, and that work is advertised here in the publisher's notice at the end of the second volume.

        THE ARCHER'S MANUAL: OR THE ACT OF SHOOTING WITH THE LONG BOW, AS PRACTISED BY

      Philadelphia: R.H. Hobson, 1830.. xii,[14]-66pp. Small octavo. Contemporary linen backed boards, lettered in gilt. Frontis and plate. Edges shelfworn, with fraying at crown of spine, foxing, tanning and occasional spotting; still a good, sound copy. First edition of this early American manual, equipped with a frontispiece engraved by Childs and Kelly after a drawing by Thomas Sully (a member). The unsigned introduction, in addition to providing a capsule history of Archery, acknowledges that the practical portion draws largely from Waring's TREATISE ... and Ascham's TOXOPHILUS. "The United Bowmen of Philadelphia, founded in 1828 by Titian Ramsey Peale, son of renowned artist Charles Willson Peale, was the first archery club in the United States and was similar to men's clubs for tennis and cricket. Members included famed architect John Haviland, portrait artist Thomas Sully, and Baldwin Locomotive Works founder Matthew W. Baldwin. Before the beginning of the second season Franklin Peale, brother of Titian and a founder, described the equipment the club owned: 'an outfit of the best quality, which consisted of a lemonwood bow, and spare strings, a dozen arrows contained in a quiver, a belt, pouch, grease-box, and tassel, a splendid pair of targets, and, finally, Waring's Treatise on Archery'" - website of the reorganized United Bowmen. Between two entries, OCLC locates only ten copies, and one copy appears in ABPC (1996). AMERICAN IMPRINTS (1830) 185. OCLC: 15220319.

        Naval Researches; or A Candid Inquiry in the Conduct of Admirals Byron, Graves, Hood and Rodney in the Actions off Grenada, Chesapeak, St. Christopher’s

      London, 1830. Folding engraved plates with hand coloring. 136 pp. “Being a refutation of the plans and statements of Mr. Clerk, Rear Admiral Ekins, and others...” White served as a young gentleman with Hood, “and was in seven actions with that distinguished officer between the 29th April, 1781, and the 12th April, 1782, on which day the ship he served in was actually engaged with, and captured, the Ville de Paris of 112 guns, bearing the flag of the Count de Grasse.” This work is a defense, based on White’s own experience, as well as naval documents, of the conduct of Graves and others in these decisive sea-battles of the American Revolution. The work is illustrated with ten hand colored folding battle plans. Good stuff, and quite scarce. Sabin 103459. Smith I, 1558. Bound in original cloth with remains of paper label. Wear to backstrip.

        ATHABASCA FUR BRIGADE: Autograph Letter Signed "John Charles" to Alexander Christie, Chief Factor of the York Factory, Reporting of the Brigade's Affairs Before Leaving Norway House to Fort Chipewyan for the Season].

      1830 - Norway House, 1 August 1830. Quarto (ca. 25x20 cm). 3 pp. Addressed, sealed and docketed on the last blank page. Fold marks, minor hole on the last page after opening, slightly affecting the text, otherwise a very good legible letter. An interesting letter from John Charles, a leader of the Hudson's Bay Company's Athabasca Brigade and Chief Factor at Fort Chipewyan (1830-1834), written on the eve of the brigade's departure to the interior for the winter trade. The letter is addressed to Alexander Christie (1792-1872), chief factor of the York Factory, subsequently considered one of the most influential factors of the Hudson's Bay Company. Charles reports on the departure of the Athabasca Brigade, as well as conditions and supplies at Norway House: "We have now nearly made an end of our Business here and expect to move off at the latest in a Day or so. Our four Boats for Athabasca were away Yesterday with an Ample Supply for the Season to meet all Demands. The Goods forwarded by Messrs. Meler & Hargrave for the Men's Equipment were most ample the Men appear quite Satisfied with these Advances, which are the best they ever got." He hopes that when "the Athabasca Brigade will henceforth return from the Plain [?], if we could have a Building of some kind erected for transacting our Business it will be of great Advantage, for at present the want of Sufficient Room even to make a temporary Shop, creates much Inconvenience, and I may add not a little Confusion. I would also be obliged to you to give Orders to have the Boats built for us at this Place, for the New Boats brought from the other Places we generally get the Worst." Charles reports that "in order to prevent too much of some Articles and too little of others being forwarded for Men's Equipment next Spring, I have made out a Requisition, both for Advances and Outfit, which if it can be complied with will be fully Sufficient." He also complains of hard conditions on the Winter Road, resulting in sickness and injury among the Indian accompanying the brigade. Overall a very interesting informative letter.

        The Little Enquirer. Or, Instructive Conversations for Children from Five to Six

      Harvey and Darton, London 1830 - 16mo, vii 76pp, 4 pp advertisements, engraved frontispiece, folding map of the hemispheres, and five other engraved plates, all hand coloured; attractive original marbled boards rebacked with green sheep, gilt title, a little scuffed but very good. Rare: an attractive item of juvenile literature with reference to New Holland and including an intriguing plate and description of the wombat, ultimately derived from David Collins' Account of the English Colony, as well as a charming folding double-hemisphere map with an odd shaped New Holland and Botany Bay. Written as a series of conversations between mother and child, the work provides a remarkable perspective of the colony at the time: 'people who steal or do wicked things in this country [England], are sometimes sent there, away from all their friends, as a punishment, and there they are made to work hard?'. The attractive hand-coloured plate depicting a wombat is another highlight. A section of the accompanying text reads: 'I have here a drawing for you, of a curious animal called a wombat, which was discovered in an island close to New Holland. It is about the size of a large dog.' 'What an ugly looking animal! How was it caught?' 'Why, the man who saw it ran after it, and as it does not run very fast he soon caught it, and lifting it up laid it upon it back across his arm, like a little child.' Like the plate, the spurious assumption that the wombat is a slow beast also derives from the text of Collins' work: rather, the wombat is said to reach speeds of around 40 km/h, near enough to the peak speed of Usain Bolt. Quaker publishers William Darton and Joseph Harvey were well known for juvenile literature, a genre which grew greatly in the first half of the twentieth century. They also published anti-slavery literature and the present volume reflects their abolitionist sympathies: 'It signifies very little what our faces are, if we are good, and do our duty.' Copies of this work are uncommon. Despite having some Australian content and interest, it was not known to Ferguson, although a copy is now recorded in the Mitchell Library. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The law of population. A treatise in six books, in disproof of the superfecundity of human beings, and developing the real principle of their increase

      London, John Murray 1830 - Two volumes in 8vo.; pp. XVI, 639, (3); pp. XII, 690, (2); contemporary half calf over marbled boards, corners strengthened, some gilding and two contrasting gilt lettering-pieces to spine, front hinge and upper spine end of volume II skullfully repaired, endpapers foxed, sprinkled edges, inside clean and crisp, a very good and decorative set. First edition. M.Th, Sadler was a member of Parliament. "This work consists principally of declamatory abuses, and of lengthened statements to show that the fecundity of human beings is inversely as their numbers. A law which never had any existence except in his own distempered imagination, and which is contradicted by universal experience". (McCulloch p. 269) Kress C 2644, Goldsmiths 26172 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
