        Kaspar Hauser, the foundling of Nuremberg. By Anselm von Feuerbach ... translated, and accompanied with notes, by (Philip Henry,) Earl Stanhope. FIRST ENGLISH EDITION.

      n.p. (Tilling, Printer, Chelsea.) 1832 Front. port. BOUND WITH: Materialien zur Geschickte Kaspar Hausers gesammelt und herausgegeben von dem Grafen Stanhope. Heidelberg, 1835, J.E.B. Mohr. BOUND WITH: Auszug eines Briefs des Grafen Stanhope au den hern Schullehrer Meyer in Ansbach ... Marz 1834. Als Manuscript gedruckt. Carlsruhe, Wilhelm Hasper. 1834. Recent plain half brown cloth, marbled boards in 19thC style.There is only a single copy of the first pamphlet (164pp) recorded on Copac, at Durham, a single copy of the second pamphlet (119pp) in the BL, and no copies of the 17pp Carlsruhe pamphlet. The case of Kaspar Hauser, 1812(?)-1833, a supposed 'foundling child' brought up in a dungeon, excited much interest throughout Europe. He first appeared in Nuremberg in 1828. Feuerbach was the Bavarian judge who investigated the case and placed Hauser with a schoolmaster, Friedrich Daumer. After incidents where Hauser was attacked, or appeared to have been attacked, Stanhope took an interest and became Hauser's foster parent, placing him with another schoolmaster, Johann Meyer, at Ansbach. After an argument between Meyer and Hauser in 1833, the latter came home wounded and later died from injuries which were suspected of being self-inflicted. Stanhope, who had originally promised to bring Hauser to England, admitted after the death of his protégé that he had been duped.

      Mexico, 1832. One horizontal and one vertical fold, with toning along the latter; official seals stamped on verso. Very good. A rare and important broadside "[a]uthorizing the Government to proceed with the liquidation of the great properties belonging to the Pious Fund. The financial aspects of the confiscation of this religious property are to be cleared up in seven years" - Eberstadt. "The Pious Fund had been created in the seventeenth century to fund the work of the Catholic missions. Secularization of the missions radically changed California. The seizure of the rich, cultivated monastery lands resulted in the empresario system, which allowed Mexican and Anglo colonizers to settle on Native American lands. Mexican authorities, by regulations such as this, intended to replace the old monastico-missionary regime in California. The importance of this decree may be inferred by the fact that it was one of the decrees presented as evidence in the Pious Fund case that came before the International Court of Arbitration in 1899" - Sloan. Very rare, OCLC locates just one copy, at Berkeley.

        Western Australia from the Latest Documents Received in the Colonial Office', One of the earliest printed maps of the colony of Western Australia.

      John Murray for the Journal of the Royal Geographical Society,, London: 1832 - One of the earliest printed maps of the new West Australian colony, established as the Swan River Colony in 1829, just three years before this Royal Geographical Society Journal publication appeared. Printed in the top right hand corner is vol 1 page 1. The map has been flattened from it's original folded state and a small boarder has been added to make the section printed outside the boarder visible when framed. Paper Size 13.25 x16 inches with .25 inch boarder all round.This attractive map of the southwestern coastline extends from north of Perth to the south cost past Albany. The inland details derive from the explorations of Ensign Dale, Capt. Bannister, Lt. Preston, Capt. Collie and Currie, and all their tracks are marked and annotated with sightings, land formations, streams, etc. "These discoveries of Ensign Dale were deemed the most promising of all yet made in the west of Australia, and led to the opening up of lucrative agricultural and pastoral areas. It came as an encouraging feature to the minds of settlers on the Swan that behind the Darling Ranges were expansive stretches of pasture for their stock, and lightly wooded valleys and plains where they might till the soil. The wealth of the colony was augmented, and all were impressed with the importance of Dale's exploration." (Kimberly, W. B., "History of West Australia", Chapter 7.)The map was originally issued in 1831 in a very small run, with insets. Map with some light offsetting. Paper measures 13 1/4 x 15 1/2". Not recorded in Tooley. Trove: Libraries Australia ID 40089487. OCLC: 222257740 records only the State Library of Western Australia with a copy.A very early and attractively detailed map of the new settlement. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Autograph Letter Signed (ALS) to Madame Dublar referencing the cholera outbreak of 1832 and sending affection to "the defenders of the 'Revolution de Juillet' and of the Tri-colour, and particularly to my old comrade de Befort."

      Written at La Grange, 1832. Near Fine. A single sheet, approximately 313 x 196 mm, folded once in the middle and with light crease marks where the sheet had been folded and sealed. Autograph text of the letter on one side, Madame Dublar's name and address on the other, along with postal stamps from the 22nd and 25th of September (1832 although stamped date partially illegible). The letter translates roughly as follows: La Grange 22 September 1832 I do not know how to offer my excuses to you, Madame, for the delay in replying to your amiable and very interesting letter. It is not for want of having appreciated deeply the value of your kindness and the information you sent. The fact is that my grateful intention has been frustrated by mischance and I do not now dare to speak of the details of your letter, not rather old, but still very important to me. My affection and my wishes go with the brave defenders of the 'Revolution de Juillet' and of the Tri-color, and particularly to my old comrade de Befort. Convey to him, I beg you, my cordial greetings, and believe that any further accounts you may send, should you deem me worthy to receive them, will obtain in the future less tardy but no less sincere thanks than this present for which I would ask you to accept my affectionate homage, and assurance of my cordial attachment. La Fayette. We have been surrounded by cholera; the principal village of our district has lost between one sixth and one seventh of its population. La grange and the farm have not been touched and the plague is abating, but one of my grand-daughters, Clementine La Fayette, still suffers a painful convalescence following the attach she had in Paris."

      - An seinen Verleger (Johann Georg Frh. Cotta v. Cottendorf). "Verehrtester Herr und Freund! Ich bin sehr erfreut über den Eifer, mit welchem Sie sich meiner faustischen Angelegenheit annehmen. Heute Abend 8 Uhr werde ich zuverlässig mit meinem Manuscripte mich bei Ihnen einfinden. Wollen Sie gütigst Herrn Zellner auf diese Stunde zu sich bestellen, so kann die Sache bald eingeleitet sein .". - Beschnitten, leichte Knickspuren, links unten kleiner Empfängervermerk.

Von einem Aufenthalt in Nordamerika enttäuscht, war er 1833 nach Europa zurückgekehrt, lebte nun abwechselnd in Stuttgart und Wien und arbeitete an seinem dramatischen Gedicht "Faust". Im Frühjahr 1834 arrangierte er sich mit Cotta wegen der zweiten Auflage seiner Gedichte und las in dessen Haus erstmals einer illlustren Gesellschaft eine Szene aus dem "Faust" vor, womit er großen Eindruck machte. Gedruckt erschien ein erstes Bruchstück der Dichtung 1835 in dem von Lenau hrsg. "Frühlingsalmanach"; 1836 brachte Cotta schließlich das fertige Werk heraus. - Provenienz: Sammlung Max Warburg; in der historisch-kritischen Gesamtausgabe vorläufig nicht enthalten.

        Anatomisch-philosophische Untersuchungen über den Kiemenapparat und das Zungenbein der Wirbelthiere. Mit vier Kupfertafeln.

      Riga und Dorpat: Eduard Frantzen, 1832 - VI, 133 (1) Seiten, vier Kupfertafeln, gedruckt auf Büttenpapier. "Martin Heinrich Rathke (* 25. August 1793 in Danzig; &#134; 3. September 1860 in Königsberg, Ostpreußen) war ein deutscher Anatom, Embryologe und Zoologe. Rathke, Sohn des Schiffbauers Georg Heinrich und dessen Frau Catharina Elisabeth Streege, besuchte das Gymnasium in Danzig und studierte von 1814 bis 1818 Naturgeschichte und Medizin in Göttingen und Berlin. Anschließend ging er als praktischer Arzt zurück nach Danzig und wurde 1825 Chefarzt am städtischen Krankenhaus, ein Jahr später Kreisphysicus. Von 1829 bis 1835 war er Professor für Physiologie und Pathologie an der Universität Tartu, damals Universität Dorpat. 1835 übernahm Rathke die Nachfolge von Karl Ernst von Baer als Professor für Anatomie und Zoologie an der Albertus-Universität Königsberg. 1852/53 war er Rektor der Albertina. Er setzte den Bau des anatomischen Instituts durch, das bis 1935 genutzt wurde. 1858 reformierte er das Physikum. 1855 wurde er zum Mitglied der Königlichen Gesellschaft ernannt, 1858 ernannte ihn die Bayerische Akademie der Wissenschaften zum auswärtigen Mitglied. Rathke entdeckte die Kiemenbogen bei Embryonen von Säugetieren und Vögeln. Bei vergleichenden Studien zur Kiemenentwicklung fand er eine Ausstülpung im Dach der sich entwickelnden Mundhöhle. Diese, heute als Rathke-Tasche bezeichnete Bildung ist Ausgangspunkt für die Entstehung des Hypophysenvorderlappens. Außerdem gilt Rathke als einer der Väter der Zoologie der Meerestiere. Er entdeckte das Lanzettfischchen als eigene Art und befasste sich mit Krebs- und Weichtieren. Rathke war mit Martha Elmire Malonek verheiratet gewesen. Einer seiner Söhne war der Chemiker Bernhard Rathke."

Contemporary green half calf, spine with 2 red gilt lettered labels. The complete section on mammals with 24 plates and text, the second section on birds lacks plate 35 Emberiza durazzi, Erythrospiza githaginea and the explanatory text to this plate. Three volumes were published of this monumental fauna of Italy. The second volume deals with amphibians and the third volume with fishes. The splendid plates were lithographed by Battistelli, most of them from drawings by Carolus Ruspi and Petrus Quattochi. Charles Lucien Bonaparte was the nephew of Napoleon Bonaparte. Despite his family connections and the disruptions that followed the Napoleonic era, he became a competent and highly respected naturalist. "Now he intended to increase the knowledge of all branches of the vertebrates by his researches and theoretical works; with his 'Iconografia della fauna Italica', begun in 1832 and completed in 1841, he added to the understanding of Italian mammals, reptiles, amphibia, and fishes, as well as birds' (Stresemann.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Leipzig, 27. XI. 1832. - 1 S. mit Adresse verso (Faltbrief). 4to. An Adolf Bäuerle in Wien: "Theurer Freund! Ich weiß vor mir selbst keine Ursachen mehr aufzufinden, mit denen ich Ihr standhaftes Stillschweigen auf alle meine Briefe erklären könnte, und muß gestehen, daß von allen meinen Freunden keiner sich so sichtliche Mühe gab, mir eine radicale Vergessenheit und Gleichgültigkeit zu beweisen, wie Sie. Mangel an Zeit kann es nicht seyn, denn wo Sie binnen Monatsfrist drei bis vier Briefe an Korn schreiben konnten, wäre wohl auch zu einigen Zeilen, zu einigen Minuten für mich Rath geworden. Ich glaube es an keinem meiner Freunde verdient zu haben, doch wenn es sich so angelegen seyn läßt, mich zu ignoriren; mir würde dies selbst gegen eine wildfremde Person unmöglich werden. - Ich werde den Grund Ihres Schweigens bald aus Ihrem Munde hören können, denn bis zum 12ten December d. J. treffe ich, unserer Verabredung gemäß, in Wien ein, und werde dann schnell meine Arbeiten an der Theaterzeitung beginnen. Auf einige tüchtige Vorwürfe aber, lieber Freund, mögen Sie sich gefaßt halten, denn Sie haben meiner zu arg vergessen. - Während unserer Trennung habe ich ein Taschenbuch: 'Austria; Charaktergemälde von Wien und Prag' - im Manuscripte vollendet; gedruckt wird es Ende Februar k.

Auszüge und Probestücke aus der Austria finden Sie in Nr. 272 des Planeten u.s.w. in Nr. 276 finden Sie eine Parallele zwischen Baeuerle und Raimund, die ich Sie gelegentlich nachzulesen bitte. - Nun eine Bitte, um die ich Sie recht innig ersuche. In Nr. 275 des Planeten - dieser ganze Wochengang wird auch als Probenummer in zweitausend Exemplaren versendet - befindet sich, ebenfalls als Fragment der Austria, eine kleine historische Reflexion von mir, betitelt: 'Kaiser Franz von Oesterreich', an welcher mir viel liegt, indem sie, rücksichtlich des Planeten und meiner eignen Stellung, bedeutend auf den Kaiserstaat wirken muß. Diesen kurzen Aufsatz bitte ich auszugsweise in den nächsten Blättern Ihrer Theaterzeitung mitzutheilen, mit Nennung des Verfassers. Da ich mich eine Zeitlang in Oesterreich aufhalten will, so liegt mir dies sehr am Herzen, und ich hoffe bei Ihrer Freundschaft in dieser Hinsicht keine Fehlbitte zu thun. - Ihrer Theaterzeitung habe ich in der Austria ebenfalls einige sehr empfehlende und vortheilhafte Worte gewidmet und ihr vollkommen ihr Recht angedeihen lassen. [.]". - Über seine Frau, die Sängerin Marie Emmering, hatte Meynert Verbindung zur Wiener Theaterszene. Nachdem er jahrelang Beiträge für Bäuerles "Theaterzeitung" geliefert hatte, übersiedelte er im Herbst 1836 als Hauptmitarbeiter der Zeitschrift (in der Nachfolge Moritz Saphirs) nach Wien. "Seine dramaturgischen Berichte über die Leistungen des Hofburg-Theaters, denen man Gründlichkeit und Unparteilichkeit nachrühmte, fanden die günstigste Aufnahme" (Wurzbach XVIII, 189). - Kl.

        Ernst Giese (1832 Bautzen-Charlottenburg 1903). Die Festhalle des Sängerbundes.

      - Ernst Giese (1832 Bautzen-Charlottenburg 1903). Die Festhalle des Sängerbundes. 1865 . Aquarell auf Papier. -- Technik: -- Aquarell auf Papier. unten rechts signiert: "E. Giese fec". -- Maße: -- Papier: 24 x 39,8 cm. -- Zustand: -- Sehr guter und farbfrischer Zustand, am Rand minimale Bereibungen, oben links in der Ecke winziger Knick. -- Beschreibung: -- Der Architekt Ernst Giese galt zu seiner Zeit als eine frühe, herausragende Begabung. Der Schüler von Nicolai an der Dresdner Akademie wurde schon in jungenJahren mit Aufträgen und Auszeichnungen überhäuft. 1855 führte ihn ein wichtiges Stipendium für zwei Jahre nach Italien. Hier wurde aus ihm auch ein hervorragender Architekturmaler. Die faszinierende Farbigkeit seiner Aquarelle hat sein Andenken möglicherweise stärker vor der Vergänglichkeit bewahrt als seine Bauten, von denen viele der Zerstörung im kriegsgeschädigten Dresden anheimfielen. Unser Aquarell zeigt in Gieses berühmter Aquarelltechnik ein Gebäude, welches durch die Zerstörerische Kraft eines orkanartigen Unwetters den Tag seiner Einweihung nur um 24 Stunden überlebte. Es ist die Festhalle, welche Giese 1865 für das erste Fest des Deutschen Sängerbundes in Dresden schuf. Der malerisch am Flußufer gelegene Festplatz mit eigener Dampfschiffanlegestelle bot den richtigen Rahmen für dieses Fest, welches die Menschen in solch riesigen Scharen anzog, wie wir es heute in vergleichbarer Weise von Rockkonzerten kennen. Giese hatte einen spektakulären Bau entworfen. Um die riesige Mittelhalle gruppierten sich Konferenzräume, Restaurants und Cafes. Mit Galerien, Türmchen und Fahnen wurde dem Gebäude etwas Heiteres und Schwebendes gegeben. Das war der richtige Rahmen für ein Fest dieses Zuschnitts. -- [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Paris & London: Paulin Libraire-Éditeur, Colnaghi, Son and Co., 1832. First edition. Oblong folio (11 x 15 7/8 inches; 279 x 401 mm.). Lithographed title-page, additional lithograph title with hand-colored vignette by George Cruikshank, and six (of nine) fine hand colored lithographed plates with twenty-nine titled images, lithographed by Delarue after Henry Monnier.An original album of six (of nine) hand colored lithographed plates (plus the George Cruikshank plate) from this exceptionally rare series. Original? plain wrappers, neatly re-backed and stitched as issued. A fine example. Housed in a fleece-lined, half black morocco clamshell case. Our plate count (of six) is identical to the copy in the Bibliotheque National de France.?"Between 1825 and 1827 Monnier passed much of his time in London, where he collaborated with Lami in what was to become the Voyage en Angleterre. On his return to Paris he embarked on a series of albums in which he recorded the manners and humors of the city with unprecedented profusion. Between 1826 and 1830 he satisfied the insatiable demand for his designs with almost 500 lithographs, nearly all of which were drawn with a pen and colored by hand. For each design he himself colored a master print and carefully supervised its subsequent preparation…Some of the salient titles in his human comedy may be mentioned. There are potpourris like Recréations du coeur et de l?'esprit, Paris vivant, and Rencontres Parisiennes. Macédoine pittoresque. There are more closely focussed surveys like Les grisettes, Moeurs administratives, Galerie théâtrale, Boutiques de Paris, and Six Quartiers de Paris. There are suites like Jadis et aujourd?'hui and Les contrastes, which take their departure from comparisons in time or of manners…Monnier was a satirist with a difference. His attitude towards his subjects hardly varies. His aim was to set down what he saw with elegance and precision, but with no overt interpretation or judgment?" (Ray, The Art of the French Illustrated Book, p. 199).We have never seen another example of this excessively rare suite of plates.We have located only two copies in institutions worldwide: Rijks Museum, Amsterdam (no plate count); Bibliotheque National de France (6 plates).

        Portraitminiatur Fanny Elßler, links unten signiert "Ender Joh.".

      Wien, um 1832. - Aquarell im roten Originalsamtrahmen, das Bildoval goldgefaßt. 240:200 mm. Bisher verschollene Portraitminiatur der jungen Tänzerin aus der Hand des "gefragtesten Portraitmaler[s] des Biedermeiers in Wien" (AKL XXXIII, 531), entstanden wohl kurz nach 1830 - zur Zeit ihrer ersten großen Wiener Erfolge - und vor der Geburt ihres zweiten unehelichen Kindes, das Elßler 1832 in London zur Welt bringen sollte. - Das halbfigürliche Bildnis zeigt Elßler im schulterfreien weißen Kleid mit Spitzenbesatz und weiten Ärmeln; um den Hals ist ein Hermelin geschlungen, ihre rechte Hand ist auf ein Podest gestützt, die linke hält drei Rosen. Neben einer auffälligen Brosche und Perlengehängen trägt sie auch eine weiße Kamelie im Haar. - Es war übrigens Elßlers späterer Geliebter Friedrich Gentz (1764-1832), der Elßler am Morgen des 26. Dezember 1829 "vier weiße Kamelien aus seinem Gewächshaus [hat] überbringen lassen. Und schon am Abend trug sie eine davon im Haar. Fortan würde ihre Vorliebe für diese kostbaren Blüten sie zur 'Cameliendame' machen" (L. Denk. Fanny Elßler. Tänzerin eines Jahrhunderts. Wien u. München 1984. S. 130f.). Der politische Publizist Gentz galt als "einflußreichster Diplomat Österreichs [.], als Erster Sekretär leitete er die Verhandlungen des Wiener Kongresses" (DBE); dessen späte Beziehung zu Fanny Elßler soll Metternich anläßlich des Ablebens seines engsten Vertrauten folgendermaßen kommentiert haben: "Die romatische Liebe bei Greisen nützt den Geist bald ab und führt das Ende herbei" (zit. n. Denk, S. 124). - Gentz, der Elßlers Wohnung auf der Seilerstätte ausgestattet hatte und bis zu seinem Tod unterhielt, war auch der Auftraggeber einer Portraitzeichnung Carl Agricolas, die im Sommer 1830 für "100 Gulden Conventionsmünze" entstand und die Geliebte ebenfalls in einem "hauchzarten weißen Kleid mit tiefangesetzten Puffärmeln" zeigte (Denk, S. 150 u. Abb. 5; "formerly property of Elisabeth Schumann, destroyed during WWII" lt. Ivor Guest: F. Elssler. Middletown Wesleyan University Press 1970. S. 17). Daß Elßler neben Agricola, Waldmüller, Daffinger und Franz Ruß auch J. N. Ender Modell gesessen hat, findet in der einschlägigen Literatur keine Erwähnung und war bisher unbekannt. - Aus dem Besitz der Nachkommen Kathi Prinsters; diese war von Fanny Elßler in deren eigenh. Testament als "treue Gefährtin meines Lebens" mit "sämtlichen Effekten, als Präziosen, Silber, Möbel, Gardarobe, Chales, Pelze, Porzellan, Glas, Hauseinrichtung usw." (F. Elßler: "Mein letzter Wille" (1884), zit. n. Denk, S. 424f.) aus der bis zuletzt gemeinsam bewohnten Wohnung auf der Seilerstätte bedacht worden. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Baudin&#39;s Cockatoo. Calyptorhynclus Baudinii

      [London: E. Lear, 1832. Hand-coloured lithograph by Lear, printed by Charles Hullmandel. Wove paper. In gold leaf frame with hand-painted French wash-line. Provenance: John James Audubon. A fine example of the work of "perhaps the greatest draughtsman of birds in European culture." (Philip Hofer) This image is from Lear&#39;s masterpiece: "Illustrations of the Family Psittacidae, or Parrots," a work that combines "the most exacting scientific naturalism with a masterly sense of design and intuitive sympathy for animal intelligence." (Susan Hayman, "Edward Lear&#39;s Birds", 1980) This excellent image is from Lear&#39;s first published work, limited to 175 copies, and the first English ornithological work published in folio format with lithographic plates. Lear began work on this monograph when he was only eighteen and carefully supervised every step of the publication. He made many of his original sketches from the live specimens at the Regent&#39;s Park Zoological Gardens, and then prepared numerous preliminary lithographs. Many of these appear not to have satisfied him, for they were never published. Christine Jackson describes Lear&#39;s painstaking approach to his work: "Lear worked in great detail, outlining every feather and filling in the details with fine lines. This scientific accuracy extended to every part of the bird, from the beak to the claws ...The colouring was done with opaque watercolours with touches of egg-white for parts of the feathers requiring sheen, and for the eye, to add that life-like touch." ( Bird Illustrators: Some Artists in Early Lithography, London: 1975).The present image depicts a long-billed black cockatoo (Calyptorhynchus baudinii) native of southwestern Australia, named in honor of the French explorer Nicolas Baudin.The provenance of this plate is impressive, having originally come from a copy of Lear&#39;s parrots presented by Lear to famed ornithologist John James Audubon (sold Sotheby&#39;s New York, 14 June 1993, lot 62). Cf. Anker 283; cf. Fine Bird Books (1990) p. 115; cf. Nissen IVB 536; cf. Ray The Illustrator and the Book 90; Zimmer, pp. 380-381.

        On political economy; in connexion with the moral state and moral prospects of society

      Glasgow: printed for William Collins; ... 1832. 8vo., viii + 566pp., contemporary polished calf, the sides embossed in blind, spine gilt with raised bands and label, all edges gilt. A fine presentation copy inscribed in ink in the author's hand ('To the Revd Dr Euston[?] with Dr. Chalmers best regards')> First edition. Kress C.3079. Goldsmiths 27260. Williams I, p.198. McCulloch p.19. Hollander 2991. Einaudi (1012) has only the 2nd edition. In this treatise, in which Chalmers follows Adam Smith and Malthus rather than Ricardo, the aim is not to develop a new treatise of political economy but through existing doctrines secure the moral, and thereby economic, elevation of society. (His practical applications amongst the poor of Glasgow worked successfully for over twenty years). He was acknowledged by contemporaries: McCulloch, the disciple of Ricardo, criticised him: Malthus, with whom he pursued a somewhat one-sided correspondence, acknowledged the pleasure and instruction of his writings. Schumpeter considered this work 'a book of considerable importance, but not easy to appraise. It represents a curious mixture of sound insights and technical shortcomings.' It is worth observing that Chalmers begins his Preface with a challenging definition of political economy, and why churchmen should be both interested and involved. 'There is one general application', he writes, 'that might be made of the whole subject, and which gives it, in our judgment, its principal claim on the earnest and respectful attention of a Christian philanthropist. Political economy aims at the diffusion of sufficiency and comfort throughout the mass of the population, by a multiplication or enlargement of the outward means and materials of human enjoyment. Now, we hold it to be demonstrable, on its own principles, that, vary its devices and expedients as it may, this is an object which it never can secure, apart from a virtuous and educated peasantry'.

        Sketch of the History of Van Diemen's Land, illustrated by a map of the island and an account of the Van Diemen's Land Company

      London: John Richardson, 1832. Octavo, with two engraved plates and a large hand-coloured folding map (small marginal tear); very good in original boards, early inked ownership inscription on front board, with later papered spine and printed label, modern slipcase. First edition. An important account of Tasmania, intended for distribution among shareholders and prospective shareholders of the Van Diemen's Land Company, reprinting several of the company's reports, including the significant (and rare) third report of 1828 detailing the explorations of the company's explorers, Alexander Goldie, Henry Hellyer, and Joseph Fossey. It was Hellyer who 'found a cliff of slate on the Arthur River, and promptly engraved on a large slab the words "Whoever is found stealing slate from this quarry, will be dealt with according to law". Apart from the inherent unlikelihood of anyone making off with large quantities of slate, the claim of ownership is revealing for its total self-assurance in the face of the wilderness...' (People, Print and Paper). The work is wide ranging, including sections on geography, wildlife, trade and emigration.Of interest is the correspondence contained in the appendix between the governor George Arthur and his superiors in London, including Viscount Goderich and Sir George Murray, regarding the escalating tension between settlers and the Tasmanian Aborigines. The appendix also includes the substantial "Extract from the Report of the Aborigines Committee, 19th March 1830."
