SWEET, Captain Samuel White
George Taplin (1831-1879), missionary and teacher, began his work with the Ngarrindjeri in April 1859; the 'site he chose for a settlement on the shores of Lake Alexandrina was a traditional camping ground called Raukkan (The Ancient Way), known to Europeans as Point McLeay.... Keenly interested in Ngarrindjeri culture and society, he learned their language, used it in preaching, and translated and published Bible tracts. He published invaluable anthropological studies which were much superior to contemporary work on South Australian Aboriginals.... Despite his sympathy with the people and their traditions, Taplin adhered to the contemporary view that Christianity and Europeanization should be adopted and Ngarrindjeri civilization abandoned; as a result he assisted in undermining their government and social structure, further weakened traditional discipline and morale within the confederacy and provoked strong opposition from conservative tribal members. But they had been dispossessed and persecuted before his arrival, and by helping them become literate and numerate and to acquire trades he enabled them to survive and flourish briefly in European society. Today hundreds of their descendants remain in various districts of Australia; their durability can largely be attributed to Taplin. He was a compassionate Christian and a courageous fighter. Exhausted, he died of heart disease at Raukkan on 24 June 1879, survived by his wife and six children. He was buried in the village cemetery' ('Australian Dictionary of Biography').

James Catnach
James Catnach, London, 1831. (51x38cm) Large broadside to mark the opening of London Bridge, giving details of the royal procession, banquet and the spectacular entertainments of 1st August, 1831. The woodcut is mounted on Japan tissue with tiny losses where old folds met in the middle of the broadside, otherwise toning and light spotting only to this delicate imprint. Like the example at the Science Museum this one is uncoloured with three crude wood-engravings depicting London Bridge decorated with flags, a large tent and on the river Thames a flotilla including the Royal Barge, the banks crowded with people, and overhead a hot air. There are four columns of text which offer an account of the preparations for the ceremony, and two songs, 'The Landing of Royal William and Adelaide at London Bridge' and 'New London Bridge and King William for ever!' The whole is set within a decorative fern leaf border. No doubt issued as a souvenir for the crowds attending the opening of the new London Bridge on 1st August, 1831, by the well-known Northumbrian-born publisher of chapbooks, penny dreadfuls and broadsides, James Catnach printed the broadside at Seven Dials near Covent Garden. The opening of new London Bridge marked the replacement of the 600 hundred-year-old London Bridge with its new design of five stone arches by John Rennie. This crossing lasted until the early 1970s when it was replaced by the current bridge. Famously, the discarded granite exterior blocks were bought by a property developer and shipped to Lake Havascu City in Arizona where they were clad onto a new struc … [Click Below for Full Description]

Very Good. Hardcover. First edition.. A nicely bound fist edition of Lieutenant-Colonel Jonathan Leach's first hand account of the Light Division's campaigns during the Peninsular Wars. The first edition of this work and very scarce. This work is an octavo. Bound without half-title. During his years of service, the author always kept a daily journal, in which he noted his experiences and the matters occurring around him.

For the other scenes, the author became acquainted with from the log-books of his brother-officers. Written by Lieutenant-Colonel Jona … [Click Below for Full Description]

L'auteur montre comment la Révolution en France bouleversa l'ancien monde politique et moral de l'Europe. La seconde partie de l'ouvrage, que l'on doit à d'Allonville, traite à son tour de l'Europe pendant le premier Empire et du changement qui s'opéra dans les politiques européennes.

Toutes sortes de gravures provenant de nombreuses sources sont réduites en pages, découpées pour s'adapter aux espaces qui leur sont alloués, aux côtés de centaines de coupures de journaux. Contenu datant des années 1830 et antérieures (certaines gravures datent du 18ème siècle). Folio (35cm x 27cm).

Tout reste "in situ" comme prévu à l'origine: rien ne soit enlevé ou extrait. Reliure assez solide. Certains s'effilochent le cuir en haut et en bas de la colonne vertébrale et frottent contre la colonne vertébrale, les bords et les planches. Laisse propre et bien rangé. Pas de taches ou de larmes de toute note. Certains tranchants aux découpages (journaux et dessins animés en particulier).
