        Two Expeditions into the Interior of Southern Australia

      London: Smith, Elder and Co, 1833. Two volumes, octavo, with a chart, a large folding map (repaired and backed on tissue) and plates (four depicting newly-discovered birds with original hand-colouring); a fine and handsome copy in half red morocco by Sangorski. Sturt's first major expeditions. Sturt's account of his first two expeditions, both of which yielded highly important discoveries about the geography of inland Australia. Sturt's first expedition set out from Sydney in 1828, with a brief from Governor Darling to follow the course of the Macquarie River. Within the first month he, and his second-in-command Hamilton Hume, had discovered the extent of the Macquarie Marshes. To the north they discovered and named the Darling River, and went on to trace the Bogan and Castlereagh rivers into the Darling, and the Macquarie into the Castlereagh. On his return to Sydney, Sturt pushed for command of an expedition to follow the Darling River to the supposed inland sea, however was instead commissioned to trace the Murrumbidgee River toward the south coast. Travelling along the river by boat, they were swept into a much broader fast-flowing river which they named the Murray, without realising it was the Hume River earlier discovered by Hume and Hovell. Sturt also discovered the junction of the Darling and the Murray, before reaching Lake Alexandrina. The most arduous aspect of the expedition awaited: after the vessel which was supposed to meet them on the south coast failed to materialise, Sturt and his men, with depleted provisions, were forced to row against the current for nearly one thousand miles to Sydney. They arrived in Sydney after many weeks of starvation and gruelling exertion. This is the first edition of Sturt's account of over four thousand miles of exploration over a four-year period. It was written while Sturt was in England, undergoing treatment for the blindness that had struck him during the voyage home. From the collection of Robert Edwards.

        Sydney. Etablissement principale de la Nouvelle Galles du Sud

      Paris: Imprimerie Royale, 1833. Hand coloured aquatint view, 220 x 315 mm.; in fine condition, in bird's eye maple frame. A splendid view of Sydney Cove, made during the Laplace voyage. It shows Circular Quay brimming with ships, the well developed Rocks area and, in detail, Fort Macquarie, the present site of the Sydney Opera House. This was one of the views made on the voyage of the Favorite under Laplace's command. The aim of this grand voyage was to re-establish French influence over Indo-China and the Pacific, as well as to gather detailed trading information and hydrographic data. After a long and difficult voyage through Asia, they moored in Port Jackson during August and September 1831 for a recreational visit. The relaxed stay, in which "banquets and balls took up our time", gave the voyage's artist, Barthelemy Lauvergne, the opportunity to draw a beautiful series of detailed views of Sydney.

        Spotted or Canada Grouse [Spruce Grouse]

      R. Havell, London 1833 - A fine image from the Havell elephant folio first edition of Audubon's Birds of America. A group of two male and two female Spruce Grouse are shown on the edge of undergrowth that includes painted trillium and twisted-stalk. They all look warily about and the male in the foreground takes fright at an imagined danger. Peterson writes: "Audubon went to the state of Maine to observe the habits of this secretive grouse and, although he succeeded, the task, he admitted, was perhaps as severe as any he ever undertook. 'These breeding grounds,' he wrote, 'I cannot better describe than by telling you that the larch forests, which are there called `Hackmetack Woods,' are as difficult to traverse as the most tangled swamp of Labrador. We sunk at every step or two up to the waist, our legs stuck in the mire and our bodies squeezed between the dead trunks and branches of trees, the minute leaves of which insinuated among my clothes, and nearly blinded me. We saved our guns from injury, however, and seeing some of the Spruce Partridge before they perceived us, we procured several specimens'" (R. T. & V. M. Peterson, Audubon's Birds of America , London: 1981, no.118). Susanne M. Low, A Guide to Audubon's Birds of America , New Haven & New York: 2002, p.113. Hand-coloured engraving with aquatint and etching. Paper watermarked "J.Whatman/1836." Two very small neatly repaired marginal tears. Fine gilt frame. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        A Liberdade dos Mares, ou o Governo Inglez Descoberto ; Traduzido livremente do Hespanhol

      Miranda & Carneiro, Rio de Janeiro 1833 - Three parts in one volume, small octavo; occasional light spotting, else a fine copy in contemporary green quarter calf, gilt. Unrecorded reference to Botany Bay. The first edition in Portuguese of this unrecorded reference to Botany Bay. First published in 1789 in Paris, Barère de Vieuzac's La Liberté des Mers was an invective against the British government, whose maritime supremacy he described in such terms as "despotism" and "tyranny". This volume is a translation from a Spanish edition of Barère published circa 1820. In the Introduction, Barère charges the British with a multitude of crimes, including responsibility for the evils of the French Revolution; conspiring with American Indians to attack non-British settlers; aiding and abetting pirates; and exiling Irish and Scottish political prisoners to Botany Bay. This reference consists of seven lines of text which appear on p. xv: '"Quem concebeo e executou o terrivel plano de desterrar para o arido Solo de Botany-Bay aos Irlandezes e Escocezes, e de assassinar em Hollanda, Italia, França e America todos os Virtuaosos patriotas, que sustentavão com energia a liberdade, e gloria de seu paiz". O Gevenrno Britanico'. Barère (1755-1841) was born in Gascony and practiced law until elected to the States-General in 1789. Elected president of the Convention in December 1792, Barère presided over the trial and execution of Louis XVI. This is the first edition to have appeared in Portuguese. None of the editions in Spanish or French have been traced in Ferguson. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      London: Seeley & Sons,., 1833. or Miscellaneous Observations on the Past and Present State of that Country and its Inhabitants. Compiled from Notes made on the Spot, during Travels, at Different Times, in the Service of the Bible Society, and a Residence of Many Years in that Country. Octavo. Original green morocco-grained cloth-backed drab boards, paper label to the spine. 8 hand-coloured lithographic plates of costume and country pastimes.

In 1816 he "undertook a tour of some seven thousand miles that took him to Tver, Moscow, Tula, Voronezh, Novocherkask, Taganrog, and through the Crimea and on to Odessa … before he crossed into Poland and on to Vienna and Berlin" (Cross) He later became sole agent of the BFBS in the German-speaking countries of Europe, leaving Russia for the last time in 1825. He composed this "work of 'miscellaneous character', mixing excerpts from travel diaries and journals of various years, notably his journey south to Odessa in 1819, with information derived from Russian sources to illustrate Russia's ecclesiastical and social history as well as its literature, folklore and proverbs". An excellent copy, unusual in the original boards, this copy with a contemporary bookplate with the Barkesworth crest to the front pastedown.

        Rosier à cent-feuilles, foliacé [Centifolia Rose]

      [C.L.F. Panckoucke, Paris 1833 - A beautiful image from "Choix des Plus Belles Fleurs": one of greatest flower books ever published by the most celebrated flower painter of all time. Pierre-Joseph Redouté was one of the world's great flower painters. Born into a family that had been painters for at least two generations, Redouté went to Paris in 1782 with his brother where they worked as scene painters for the Théâtre Italien. Redouté painted flowers in his spare time. The search for subjects led him to the Jardin du Roi and eventually to Gerard van Spaendonck who made him an assistant. While at the Jardin du Roi, Redouté came to know Charles-Louis L'Heritier, an amateur botanist and writer of independent means. He gave Redouté a full time job as an illustrator, instructing him in plant anatomy. Redouté's scientific understanding of plants contributed greatly to the clarity of his depictions. But it was Redouté's work in stipple engraving and colour printing that was to be of the greatest importance. Stippling and the application of two or three colour inks to one plate were engraving innovations that Redouté brought to French printmaking, and these were brought to perfection in his three great works: Les Liliacees (1802-1816), Les Roses (1817-1824) and the work from which this image comes Choix des plus belles fleurs. et . des plus belles fruits which was published in 36 parts with 144 plates between 1827 and 1833. The present image shows Redouté at his most assured, combining the best of his artistic background with his skill as an observer of nature. He writes in the preface to the Choix : ''It is with the benefit of experience, and encouraged by the most flattering approval of naturalists and painters of France and abroad, that I undertook took this most agreeable of botanical works. By ceaseless observation of nature, in its constancy and its variety of forms and colours, I believe that I have reached that synthesis of botanical accuracy, composition and colouration that is essential to produce the perfect image of the plant kingdom.' Cf. Hunt Redouteana 21; cf. Dunthorne p 235; cf. Great Flower Books (1990), p 129; cf. Nissen BBI 1591; cf. Pritzel 7456; cf. Stafleu & Cowan TL2 8750. Stipple engraving, printed in colours and finished by hand, engraved by Langlois. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling and a slightly brownish tint to the paper due to age.

        Reise um die Erde durch Nord Asien und die Beiden Oceanie in den Jahren 1828, 1829, und 1830

      Berlin: 1833-, 1848. Seven volumes, the five text volumes untrimmed and unopened, including three folding hand-colored maps, a color key to the maps, and four lithographed folding plates, quarto geographical atlas of eleven lithographed views (two folding), folio natural history atlas with seventeen lithographed plates (two colored) and ink stamp on both titles; some light tanning and foxing but a near fine set in uniform three quarter green morocco, spines gilt, in matching cloth slipcases. Exploration in northeastern Asia, Siberia, Russian America and the northern Pacific. One of the rarest and best - yet least-known - accounts of 19th century exploration in northeastern Asia, Siberia, Russian America, and the northern Pacific ocean. Erman's study is even less well-known, however, for its significant and early scientific observations made in the Americas, including in Sitka and San Francisco in late 1829. The work is comprised of a three-volume account of Adolph Erman's travels in the years 1828-30, a two-volume natural history text, an atlas of geographical views, and a natural history atlas. Erman contributed a great deal to the scientific and literary material regarding Russia and Russian America, and in 1844 he was awarded a medal from the Royal Geographical Society. Erman's work was issued in parts over a span of fifteen years and is almost never found as a complete set. Adolph Erman, born in Berlin in 1806, was a scientist and traveller in the mould of Alexander von Humboldt. A physicist by training, in 1828 he undertook to travel around the world, departing with the company of Christopher Hantseen, which was to carry out magnetic measurements in Siberia. Erman travelled eastward across Russia, and when the Hantseen expedition turned back at Kyakhta he proceeded onward at his own expense to Yakutsk and Okhotsk. He crossed the Sea of Okhotsk to Kamchatka and journeyed across the peninsula to the port of Petrovalovsk, where he met the ship of Leontii Hagemeister, who was supplying Russian colonies in Alaska. Erman travelled with Hagemeister to Sitka (where he apparently observed the sea otter pictured in the natural history atlas) and then on to San Francisco, Tahiti, the coast of South America, and then around the Horn to Europe. Several sources contend that Erman actually travelled back to Europe with the Russian expedition of Fedor Lutke (see Howgego, for example) but this appears to be incorrect, based on the chronology provided by Littke. Erman's textual narrative ends with him in Kamchatka in October, 1829. Erman spent several years after his return to Germany preparing the manuscript of his travels, which was published in parts through the 1830s and 1840s. The text volumes describing his journey contain detailed observations on zoology, botany, geography and ethnology, as well as accounts of the peoples and places he encountered. Included are descriptions of a trip down the Ob River, the culture of the Ostyanks and Samoyeds, a discussion of the geology and geography of the northern Urals, Yakutsk, and Okhotsk areas, and brief Yakut and Tungus vocabularies. Erman travelled across Kamchatka in the summer and fall of 1829 and describes his wanderings over land and by river, as well as details of the geography, geology, botany, volcanoes, zoology, meteorology, and ethnology of the peninsula. He also includes a vocabulary of the Kamchadal dialect. The two volume natural history text contains observations on latitude and longitude, as well as geomagnetic studies and magnetic observations made on land in Siberia, Kamchatka, Alaska, California, and South America, as well as on the Pacific Ocean. Apart from the wealth of scientific studies and readings Erman made in Russia, he performed the same tests and reported the same results for Sitka, Alaska in November, 1829, San Francisco in December of that year, all across the Pacific Ocean, and in Rio de Janeiro in the spring of 1830. The natural history texts, therefore, contain an impressive amount of early, accurate scientific material on Alaska, California, and South America. The plates in the geographic atlas (each of which contains at least two and up to four views) are without captions, but are keyed to the places described in the text volumes. They chiefly depict scenes in Kamchatka, showing forests, waterways, mountains and volcanoes. The natural history atlas features attractive lithographs of birds (the majority of the images), a sea otter from Sitka, fish, insects, and plants. An important work of travel and science in Asia and Russia, with significant scientific material on California and Alaska.

        An Encyclopaedia of Cottage, Farm, and Villa Architecture and Furniture

      London: Longman, Rees, Orme, Brown, Green & Longman, 1833. Thick octavo, half title including publishers advertisements to verso, almost 100 lithographs on thicker art pages (but with continuing pagination) as well as more than 2,000 wood engravings throughout, early owner's inscription, some scattered foxing, very good; half dark blue morocco, original marbled boards, spine with some cracking and skilfully re-jointed, gilt. A very attractive copy of the first edition of this important historical architectural reference work, in a Sydney binding, and with a handsome gift inscription to a Mr Carr, 'on his leaving for Sydney' in 1835. It is also likely that the pencilled "Mort" in an early hand refers to the later owner of the work, the Sydney businessman Thomas Sutcliffe Mort. Broadbent wrote that this work was the 'principal architectural handbook for amateurs and professionals' in the 1830s and 1840s, and it evidently exerted a vast influence on the colonial architecture in New South Wales (Australian Colonial House, p. 205). The work is recognised as helping define Victorian architecture, a style that is very prominent in the history of Australian design. John Claudius Loudon (1783-1843), a Scottish botonist, horticultural designer and editor of The Gardner's Magazine is known well for his designs for the Birmingham Botanical Gardens, Stradsett Hall in Norfolk and the Abbey Cemetery in Bath. With this work, Loudon established himself as an expert in the language of rural architecture: 'Loudon's involvement with architecture arose naturally out of his interest in landscape. He made himself a specialist in rural vernacular building types by writing his Encyclopaedia of Cottage, Farm, and Villa Architecture (1833). This work was unprecedented in that it was consciously addressed to the middle class rather than to an aristocratic audience' (Brittanica). A pencil note on the front pastedown makes the interesting comment that when this 'book was rebacked (actually rejointed) in 2004 the spine was found to be lined with an 1845 Sydney newspaper. So "Mr Carr" had the book rebound soon after arrival in Sydney.'.

Lithographed frontispiece and 5 plates (1 folding), folding colored map, text illustrations. London: Longman, Rees, Orne, Brown, Green & Longman, 1833. 213 x 132 mm. 19th century half calf, marbled boards, all edges gilt, rebacked preserving original spine, light edgewear. Plates somewhat foxed, map backed with linen, otherwise very good. Presentation copy, with Mantell&#39;s autograph inscription to Capt. [Proby Thomas] Cautley (1802-71) bound in before the frontispiece: "To Capt. Cautley as a mark of the high respect of the author for his important researches in Paleontology, & in gratitude for Captain Cautley&#39;s valuable addition to the Author&#39;s Museum. Brighton Feby. 14, 1837."</p><p>First Edition. Announcing the discovery of Hylaeosaurus, the third dinosaur specimen to be discovered, and the first known specimen of the Ankylosauria. Mantell, a British obstetrician and enthusiastic amateur paleontologist, had discovered the first true dinosaur, the Iguanadon, in 1822 in the British county of Sussex. "In 1832 Mantell discovered the first strongly armored group of dinosaurs. He described this fossil, which he named Hylaeosaurus, in The Geology of the South-east of England. . . . Meanwhile, Buckland in 1824 had described the remains of the large carnivorous dinosaur Megalosaurus from the Jurassic near Oxford. Thus the first three dinosaurs to be known, the Iguanadon, the Megalosaurus, and the Hyaelosaurus, each belonged to a quite distinct group, later called Ornithopoda, Theropoda, and Ankylosauria, respectively" (Dictionary of Scientific Biography).</p><p>Mantell presented this copy of his Geology of the South-east of England to Proby Thomas Cautley, a British engineer and paleontologist who spent most of his career in India. Cautley was the first to find fossils in the Siwalik range of the Himalayas and, together with Hugh Falconer, he amassed and classified an enormous collection of sub-Himalayan fossils that he later presented to the British Museum. Cautley had evidently contributed a fossil specimen to Mantell&#39;s own museum, which he had established in his house in Brighton (the museum took over Mantell&#39;s entire residence, and his wife and children were forced to seek housing elsewhere!).</p>

      London - Longman, Rees, Orme, Brown, Green, and Longman, 1833. London - Longman, Rees, Orme, Brown, Green, and Longman, 1833 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A first edition and complete set of James&#39;s historical novel, dating from the 1830s. First Edition. Complete in three volumes. George Payne Rainsford James (August 9 1799 June 9 1860) was an English novelist and historical writer. He was for many years British Consul at various places in the United States and on the Continent. He held the honorary office of British Historiographer Royal during the last years of William IV&#39;s reign. In 1825 he wrote his first, and probably his best known novel Richilieu, which wasn&#39;t published until 1829. After reading Richilieu, and receiving a letter from James, Walter Scott advised him to take up literature as a profession. He was also given encouragement by Washington Irving. He was appointed Historiographer Royal during the last years of William IV&#39;s reign, and published several official pamphlets. In 1842 he lived at Walmer and was frequently a guest of the Duke of Wellington at Walmer Castle. In 1845 he went to Germany, partly for recreation and partly to gather material for his writings. On his return to England he lived for some time in Farnham, Surrey. Condition: In half calf bindings with marbled boards. Externally, sound with some rubbing to the extremities. Chipping to several of the spine labels. Internally, firmly bound. Some foxing to the endpapers but otherwise generally clean. Slight marginaltidemarks to the first few pages of volume II.
