        [Autograph Letter, Signed, to George Pope Morris]

      [Np], 1834. Two pages, in ink, on recto and verso of octavo lettersheet. Old folds from mailing, otherwise very good. An excellent letter to ["Col."] George Pope Morris, sending thanks for ". . . the volume[s?] of your delightful miscellany which you have had the kindness to send me ... and ... to express the deep sense I entertain of the repeated ... esteem and good will which you have manifested toward me for years past. These derive particular value in my eyes from that character for intelligence and worth which you have so honorably cast[?] for yourself in the community...." Morris (1802- 1864) was cofounder (and eventually sole proprietor) of the NEW-YORK MIRROR AND LADIES' LITERARY GAZETTE, a periodical which afforded an important medium for the works of the early Knickerbocker school of writers.

He began his architectural activities in London, Bloomsbury, 1834, date of this edition, demonstrating his mastery of Gothic architecture. He was recognized for his early talent for drawing.

HARALD FISCHER VERLAG : \"Nach kleineren Anfängen war das Encyklopädische Wörterbuch die erste großangelegte, von deutschen Medizinern vorgelegte medizinische Enzyklopädie. Ihr Entstehungszeitraum, die Jahre zwischen 1830 und 1850, war in der deutschen Medizin eine Zeit der Krise und des Umbruchs, die Medizin schien in ein chaotisches Nebeneinander von unterschiedlichen Theorien und Praktiken zu münden. - In dieser Zeit des Umbruchs schufen C.W. Hufeland und seine Mitherausgeber ein Wörterbuch, dessen Beiträge von sachlichem Stil und nüchterner, unpolemischer Kritik geprägt waren. Das Wörterbuch bot einen solide recherchierten zeitgenössischen Wissensstand und einen verhältnismäßig neutralen Überblick über die Vielfalt der medizinischen Theorien und Konzepte. Daneben sind insbesondere die reichen LITERATURANGABEN aus heutiger Sicht sehr nützlich.\" INHALT: Band 1 Aachen - Agyrta. Band 2 Ahnung - Antimonium. Band 3 Antipathie - Attractio.

        Première Babylone ... Sémiramis la Grande, traduit d'un manuscrit hiéroglyphique égyptien.

      P., imp. de H. Dupuy, 1834, in 8°, de CXLIII-514 pp. (dont 4ff. chiffrés par des symboles après la p.384), titre orné, figures in t. et une grande figure à pl. page, demi-maroquin bun à coins, t. dorée, rel. moderne. Envoi de l'auteur en grande partie effacé. Qq. rousseurs sinon bel exemplaire. Rarissime ouvrage non mis dans le commerce et tiré à petit nombre. ¶ Caillet n°3067: "Livre mystérieux, précédé d'une grande étude sur le symbolisme notamment sur celui des cathédrales... d'aucuns l'apprécient: curieuse élucubration d'un fou littéraire." - P. Dujols: "Ouvrage maçonnique des plus étranges et des plus mystérieux. L'auteur prétend qu'il est la traduction d'un manuscrit hiéroglyphique d'un prêtre de Memphis, et qui lui aurait été confié par un illustre orientaliste (lisez: initié M:.). Ce manuscrit, voile de la tradition maç:. était intitulé Sémiramis Trismégiste. S'inspirant des anciens Maçons Constructeurs, Desjardins, dans une admirable préface symbolique intitulée la Cathédrale, présent eaux adeptes ce livre fermé pour les profanes." "Ce dialogue du Mystère des Trois Voix, dit l'auteur p.501, prouve et constate combien d'efforts et de sacrifices inouïs auraient été tentés par le jeune Ninyas afin d'échapper aux conséquences terribles de son personnage de Prêtre de la Mort, qu'il aurait revêtu dans Memphis, au pied du Dieu rémunérateur et vengeur. Personnage irrésistible et fatal, mais de la dernière fatalité, selon le code secret des initiations et la consécration de nos saint Mystères qu'il ne m'est pas permis de découvrir ici, ni par la parole, ni par caractères confiés au papyrus! LES INITIES ME COMPRENNENT." Desjardins fut vers 1830, le grand chef des sociétés secrètes, le véritable maître absolu du pouvoir, et, dit Francis Lacombe, le président en expectative de la future république; "Se dressant du haut des cités babyloniennes, continue son biographe, il parlait devant nous la langue des Mages et de Chaldée, perdue depuis quatre mille ans et providentiellement retrouvée par lui au XIX) siècle, pour la stupéfaction du genre humain." L'ouvrage est rempli de reproductions pittoresques d'anciens textes hébreux, coptes, chaldéens, égyptiens, éthiopiens etc... orné d'un titre orné très symbolique et d'une gravure finale figurant l'initié parvenu à la suprême lumière. ¶ Brunet les fous littéraires p. 56: "Cette production plus qu'étrange n'a pas été mise dans le commerce, l'érudition et l'extravagance y débordent..." - Blavier les fous littéraires p.59: "publication... d'un luxe inattendu... vaste drame... composé en partie en caractères hébreux, persans, arabes, chaldéens etc.. Un livre rare mais dont l'appartenance stricte à la classe des productions que nous étudions est discutable."

Ainsi, pour les Etats-Unis, on suit les développements des établissements de "Nazareth" à Dayton (Ohio), fondée en 1849, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Sanduski, Pittsburg, San Antonio (Texas) (depuis 1852), la fondation à Hawaï (Iles Sandwich) en 1883 ; on peut y suivre tous les développements de l'Oeuvre marianiste, dont leurs missions en Chine et au Japon, avec la longue (76 pages) et passionnante circulaire n° 47 du Père Simler (consacré à la "Fondation à Tôkyô" du 19 mai 1888 ; le père Simler y relate tout le détail de son voyage de fondation et de son installation au Japon, avec ses jugements sur la société japonaise et son système éducatif). On trouve d'autres circulaires du plus haut intérêt telle la fondation de la mission à Hawaï (1883, circulaire n° 28 du Père Simler) et l'importante "Notice historique" du même retraçant l'origine des missions les plus anciennes. Entre 1900 et 1945, les circulaires se recentrent plus sur l'organisation générale de la Société de Marie (les développements sur les missions étant plus spécifiquement traités dans la revue "l'Apôtre de Marie"), puis après la guerre, elles évoquent à nouveau plus précisément les développements missionnaires. On lira par exemple avec grand profit la circulaire n°6 du Père Juergens (1948) relative à sa visite au Japon, 2 ans après la fin des hostilités, avec le compte-rendu de sa visite à l'Empereur, une présentation de l'état physique et moral du Japon et le détail des visites à Tokyo (Gyosei Chu Gakko et Akebono Gaku), Nagasaki (Kaisei Chu-Gakko), Urakami (Nagasaki), Osaka (Meisei Chu-Gakko), Fukuoka (Taisei Chu-Gakko), Sapporo (Kosei Chu-Gakko)n Gora (Park Hotel), Jindai Mura (Shudoin), Kioyose Mura (Kiyoto Gakunen), ou encore la circulaire n° 23 de 1953, du Père Juergens, relatant sa visite aux missions d'Amérique : Honolulu, Waikuku, San Francisco, Alameda, Gardena, Los Angeles, Santa Cruz, San Antonio, Victoria et Sommerset (Texas), Kirkwood, Glencoe, Clayton, Saint Louis, Belleville, Chicago, Milwaukee, Galesville, Dayton, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Fairborn, Covington et Hamilton dans l'Ohio, Pittsburgh et Philadelphie (Pennsylvanie), Marcy, Beacon Brooklyn, Mineola et Tockaway Park (New York), Baltimore et Washington, San Juan et Ponce (Puerto Rico), S. Boniface et S. Anselme et Levis au Québec, Lima, Callao, Chaclayo et Chupaca au Pérou, etc., ou encore la circulaire n° 25, de 1963, du Père Hoffer relative à sa visite des missions en Afrique : Côte d'Ivoire, Togo, Nigéria, Congo, etc...

        Spécies Général et Iconographie des Coquilles Vivantes, comprenant la collection du Muséum d'Histoire Naturelle de Paris, la collection Lamarck, celle du Prince Masséna et les decouvertes récentes des Voyageurs.

      Paris, Rousseau/ Baillière, (1834-1880). 11 volumes (bound in 13). Royal-8vo. With 902 (5 in coloured copies) fine handcoloured engraved plates. Later speckled calf with 2 red gilt lettered labels. One of the most desirable works on shells. It was published over a period of almost half a century and especially the last 27 parts published by P. Fischer from 1873-1879 are rare. In the monograph on the Turbo by Fischer published in 1873 the text (128 pages) is in a recent reprint as well as plates 37-42. The 11 page text of the genus Phasianella is also in a reprint. Some plates of the genus Turbo have been trimmed with some slight loss of the illustration. A few plates have the upper right corner very slightly chipped./Kiener made use of the famous Delessert collection and that of the Natural History Museum of Paris, together the largest and most varied fund of conchological material on the continent. "He soon put it to good use; and in 1834 he published the first part of his 'Spécies ...' This exquisitely illustrated iconography, started before the Sowerbys and Reeve began to issue theirs, appeared at intervals up to 1879, when eleven volumes had been completed. All devoted to the illustration of marine gastopods with the exception of the tenth volume, which includes a monograph on the bivalve genus Thracia. The eleventh volume is the work of Paul Fischer. All the illustrations are by celebrated French engravers and artists of the day." (Dance. Hist. of Shell Collecting p. 137). This beautifully illustrated iconography on shells is still a valuable work of reference because of the new species described in it. The work is complete with 902 handcoloured plates as indicated in the last volume, where the publisher 'Ballière' informs the reader that the work consists of 165 parts with a total of 902 plates. Nissen, however, calls for a 20bis plate in the Cypraea section which, indeed, some copies have. Most likely only the early issues have this 'bis' plate, which was probably replaced by a corrected plate 20 in later issues. In the text this 'bis' plate is not mentionned. //Provenance: With the occasional stamp of Richard I. Johnson. //Nissen ZBI, 2183; B.M.(Nat. Hist.)II, 978.

        [AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, FROM HENRY CLAY TO HIS ASSOCIATE JAMES BROWN IN 1834 REGARDING THE SALE OF A PLANTATION AND SEVERAL OTHER ITEMS OF PERSONAL NEWS]

      Lexington, Ky, 1834. [1]p., on a bifolium, with integral address leaf. Quarto. Previously folded, with several small separations along fold lines. Area of paper loss on address leaf, not affecting text, torn away by wax seal, of which remnants still present. Tanned. Written in a small, but legible hand. Good plus. An interesting letter by Henry Clay from his Ashland estate in Lexington, Kentucky to a business associate, James Brown, discussing his potential purchase of a nearby plantation. Though Clay and his addressee seem eager to made a deal, the seller is dragging his feet: "I proposed to him to name a price what he would give or take, and urged his superior information as a reason why he should thus fix the price. But he did not accede to that proposal, and he spoke of the expediency of a division of the slaves. I thought his eagerness to close the concern had somewhat abated since his visit to Philad[elphi]a and your constitution of an Agency. He professed however to have no description of the slaves &c. with him here." He goes on to suggest that an agent will need to visit the owner in person in order to accomplish any deal, writing, "I shall endeavor to persuade Mr. Mason Brown to go down and with Mr. Erwin in the final adjustment of it. If he cannot go, he and I will fix upon some other person to be associated with Mr. Erwin, under the power of substitution with which you have invested us, unless you disapprove that course." The rest of the letter discusses smaller pieces of personal news, including the improvement of the health of Clay's wife and the death of a Judge with whom Clay was acquainted. An interesting letter revealing some of the Great Compromiser's business dealings during the later part of his political career.

        Extracts from the Letters and Journals of George Fletcher Moore, Esq. Now filling a Judicial Office at the Swan River Settlement...

      London and Dublin: Orr and Smith, W. Curry, 1834. Small octavo, folding map, a fine copy in contemporary half polished calf withdrawn from the library of Lincoln's Inn (with gilt armorial crest to lower spine). First edition of this rare book in the preferred issue with the folding map.Portions of Moore's letters were first published in slim pamphlets in Dublin in 1832; these are extremely rare. This longer edition, also rare, contains further letters and more detailed extracts which cover in rich personal detail the first five years of settlement.Moore, a lawyer, landed proprietor, diarist, and the colony's advocate-general arrived at the Swan River Settlement on the brig Cleopatra in 1830; over the following decades he became a large land-holder at his property Millendon and was appointed advocate-general. Less than a month after arriving in the settlement, Moore accompanied the colonial secretary on a search-party to find Aborigines implicated in a robbery. From this period on he would express sympathetic concern for the local tribes, and made a sustained effort to learn their language and understand their stories: this interest culminated in his later vocabulary of the dialects of the region.Moore was also an enthusiastic explorer who took part in several inland expeditions: he traced the Swan River to the Avon; helped discover the York district; discovered the Moore River and good land near Northam; and was sent to examine the Champion Bay district following Grey's report. Some scattered foxing.

        Excursions in New South Wales, Western Australia and Van Diemen's Land, During the Years 1830, 1831, 1832, and 1833.

      London: Richard Bentley, 1834. Octavo, with two lithograph plates;, edges rough-trimmed only, in half red morocco gilt by Sangorski & Sutcliffe. Sangorski & Sutcliffe. The revised and enlarged second edition. Breton emigrated to Tasmania after leaving the navy in 1827, eventually becoming police magistrate at Launceston. He visited the other colonies, including the recently established settlement at Swan River, as well as New Zealand. He gives an excellent description of Tasmania at perhaps its most difficult time when it was suffering from the depredations of bushrangers and the struggles with the Aborigines. He wrote the book on his return to England, as he says in order to give people who were considering settling in the Australian colonies a realistic and practical view of what the colonies were actually like. This is certainly one of the better-written such descriptive books, and was evidently successful since this second edition was needed just a year after first publication. A fine, large copy.

        Naturgeschichte und Abbildungen der Menschen und der Saugethiere...

      Zurich: J.J. Honnegger, circa, 1834. Folio, 74 lithograph plates, original pale yellow front wrapper bound in; some significant foxing to some plates although mostly to the margins, letterpress with browning and spotting, watermarking to the edge of many plates but not affecting the images; altogether a very good copy in contemporary half calf with marbled boards, spine sunned, repaired at head. Rare, revised edition of this zoological study of mammals, including many Australian species, with fine illustrations of the Tasmanian tiger, wombat, kangaroo and platypus. The plates are newly engraved by Honegger.The author Schinz served as professor of zoology at Zurich, where he founded the zoological collection and wrote a number of works in related fields including similar studies of branches of zoology and anthropology. Schinz prepared a great series of such works, including a history of birds, reptiles, fish, and, given his concomitant interest in ethnography, another anthropological work on the peoples of the world.This is a particularly uncommon work and, as is always the case with the prolific Schinz, it is bibliographically complex. A different two-volume work by Schinz with a similar title was first published in Zürich in 1824, but this Honnegger edition appears to have been first published in 1834 (see another copy held in the Staatsbibliothek in Berlin, although the Berlin copy has 125 pp. of letterpress, while the present copy has 128 pp.). A second revised Honegger edition, easily recognised by the updated imprint "In der Honeggerschen Lithographischen Anstalt", was published in 1840.No copy of any of these editions appears to be held in any Australian collection.

Edmonds (Dilly) with Guy Darling and Bob Fellows leaving England, and being joined in South Africa by John Dunn and Captain Walmesley

      John Robert Dunn (1834-1895) a South African settler, hunter, and diplomat of Scottish dissent his love of hunting took him regularly into Zululand. An influential man in the area, Dunn became a close and respected friend of the Zulu chief Cetshwayo being given tracts of land in Zululand and having a number of Zulu wives. The diary begins with the party leaving Falmouth on March the 12th. They sight Table Mountain on 13th April There are various observations and episodes of the journey including shooting Porpoises Albatrosses etc. They meet with a Captain Watson 11th regiment who is planning to come up to Dunns country with them, "a great bore but cannot be helped, I fear we shall be to many guns on the ground". The party leave Durban on the 29th receiving a letter from Captain Walmesley the government agent that he would join the party at the Tugela river on the 4th. There are various references to equipping out the expedition getting guns' powder, wagons etc. "Setting out on the 6th May and crossing the Tugela river and leaving our horses on the Natal side as the river is running to fast JD is waiting to greet us and welcomes us to Zululand. Dunn reflects on how the land abounded with game 15 years ago and tells us the best shooting will be at the end. We spend time in the area shooting Buck plains game etc. We meet our first Zulus on the 24th "a primitive people". On the 26th we leave for new Buck country, Dunn goes to his place some 27 miles away and to see Ketowayo (Cetshwayo)." There are various encounters with Zulus recorded including a visit to a Kraal and how Kaffir hospitality is very poor. On Saturday 4th June we cross the Umbelozi (Umfolozi). Much shooting of Koodoo waterbuck Wilde beast Gunu etc recorded. A typical entry Fri 10th after Rhino walking through bush an old Rhino jumps up fire 4 barrels at 15 yds., but she goes off. On the 15th I shot my first Rhino" shot him in the chest at 150 yds. he drops dead "also shot a Klepspringer possibly the smallest and largest beasts we are likely to get. A great deal of shooting for seacows (Hippos). We cross the Nyalazi on the 23rd the next day we watch the Zulus hunt and hear about a Dutchman 6 miles away who is expected to die of fever. There is a party of Dutch hunters who had spoiled our hunting on the Umfolozi. Various hunting episodes taking place, we pass Baldwin's camp where only 2 out of his party of 7 survived "but the climate has altered since", (In 1860 Baldwin's 1st safari after Hippo, 8 of his 10 white companions died of Malaria). From now on there is a great deal of hunting recorded and observation a large number of Rhinos being shot and numerous plains game. It is remarkable how many animals were wounded or badly shot and not retrieved. Many near misses for the guns and their kaffir boys being charged by rhino's. On the 16th we move camp I saw W nearly a mile off, he arrived covered in blood after shooting a lion and thinking it was dead he advanced and was attacked by the lion. The following day I go off with D where the lion was. D shot at a lion and I give it a barrel Dunn shouted at us not to run in, the lion was from yesterday it was hit 3 times by W the lion was skinned and the meat eaten by the kaffirs. Sunday 30th I chase on horseback 2 rhinos shot both 1 dropping like a rabbit, F shots 5 in 1 day. The diary continues in the same vein hunting every day. On Saturday the 12th August we move camp Esmonde slept out that night. Here the diary ends with "I shall not keep this diary any more tho we expect another month & some fun with sea cow." At the end of the volume is a 10-page game register giving the game shot by each member of the party. And a total breakdown of the head shot overall, which include 27 Rhinos 39 hippos 67 Gnu . Reading the diary, you become aware that a great deal of game was wounded and not picked, including many Rhinos I am assuming these are not recorded in the register. An important and early hunting diary particularly being in Zululand with John Dunn. Dunn in the late 1850s strove to bring peace between Cetshwayo and his half-brother Mbuyazis the carnage was horrific and it lived with Dunn for the rest of his life. Cetshwayo becoming King at his father's death in 1872. After this Dunn became possible the second most powerful man in Zululand becoming Cetshwayo advisor and confident.

Although a warning dilutes the vision of the author, the narrator giving an inglorious image of America, it will be seen that Dickens himself, who made the trip in 1842 gave a similar picture, a america dedicated to one rule and one God: profit and contemptuous Europe. Unsolicited testimonials from industrious america, cities under construction, and landscape (Falls Naigara ...), the author describes each remarkable thing. Interesting travelogue by a sharp look. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate. Contact us for any information!

        Crinum Declinatum from A Selection of Hexandrian Plants.

      London: Havell, circa 1834. Handcoloured aquatint, 642 x 450 mm. (sheet size), mounted. Born circa 1800, Priscilla Susan Bury was the daughter of a wealthy Liverpool merchant. She was raised at her family's estate, Fairfield, where exotic plants were grown in the family's hothouses. At that time, Liverpool was England's second city, a major industrial and trade centre. Due in large part to the efforts of William Roscoe, a wealthy Liverpool merchant and botanist, it also became a centre for the Linnaean System of classification, which further fuelled the Victorian fascination for botanical subjects. As a young girl growing up in this environment, Priscilla Bury began painting flower studies at an early age and displayed considerable talent. Her botanical illustrations (or "portraits" as she called them), which were primarily of lilies and related flowers.Bury occupies a singular position in botanical art. Unlike Redouté or Poiteau, she was not trained as a botanist or patronised as a professional artist. Her remarkable contribution, A Selection of Hexandrian Plants, which depicts flowers with six stamens, is the largest scale, most unusual and rarest of all nineteenth century botanicals. It was engraved by renowned London engraver Robert Havell at the very same time that he was engraving Audubon's plates. First produced from 1831 to 1834, these rich aquatint plates were partly printed in colour and further coloured by hand.This plate is Bury's study of the CRINUM declinatum (declinate), a form of CRINUM asiaticum. Fine.

        La Conquete des Airs, Reve Philosophique.

      Paris: Marchant, Editeur, 1834. Octavo, 22 pp.; in the original printed blue paper wrappers preserved in a modern quarter cloth binding. Rare first edition (NUC notes a single copy) of this very early aeronautical fantasy, an impassioned plea for the aérostation as the basis for a world of harmony and perfection.This rather odd piece of aeronautical history is dedicated to the regeneration of interest in travelling by air, 'cet enfant du dix-huitième siècle qui produirait en économie sociale, en morale, en politique, des résultats bien autrement merveilleux que ceux des chemins de fer'. M. Poujol sets the scene when he finds himself wandering around the Tivoli gardens on a particularly lovely day, pondering the wondrous future society of the air. It occurs to him that modern society is not devoting enough attention to the possibility of flight, an unnerving omission which he hopes to rectify with this account. As support, he takes time to point out that not only was the noted intellect Louis XVI a huge fan of the aeronaut, but he also suggests that Napoleon was very keen to try a surprise invasion of England by air. A fine copy.

        Map of the Colony of New South Wales...

      London: Mitchell & Carmichael, 1834. Dissected hand-coloured engraved map, backed on linen as issued, 625 x 1340 mm.; a remarkably handsome large-format map; preserved in the original green cloth slip-case, early manuscript label to front. Very rare: the so-called "Map of the Nineteen Colonies" drawn by Major Thomas Mitchell and engraved by John Carmichael in Sydney. This large-format separately-issued map is highly prized as it was both drawn and engraved in Sydney, ignoring the standard protocol of forwarding manuscripts to London to have them engraved there, and is 'an exquisite example of the engraver's art' (Butler, Printed, p. 81).An excellent note accompanying the copy of the map in the State Library of New South Wales, which lists the map as one of the more significant in their collection, comments that the "Map of the Nineteen Counties" was compiled 'from 900 surveys, and engraved by Mitchell and Carmichael, costing Mitchell nearly £1200.' A copy of the map was submitted to Colonial Secretary Macleay in February 1834, and the map was then sent to Lord Stanley (the dedicatee, then serving as Secretary of State for War and the Colonies, but later a three-times Prime Minister of the United Kingdom) on 5 May 1834. The Library's catalogue notes that despite being said to have been "republished in London", this may in fact have been a stratagem against piracy of the map by implying an earlier full issue. It was first advertised for sale in Sydney in the Gazette for 14 July 1835.Mitchell had arrived in the Colony in 1827 and became Surveyor-General on the death of Oxley the following year. His work on completing a comprehensive survey of New South Wales was his first major task, and this map is therefore notable not only as the crowning achievement of his early career, but as the first major work to plot his roads west to Bathurst and south towards Goulburn (here shown as "roads planned and marked out by Major Mitchell, and made or in progress by the Gangs under his orders"). In late 1831 and 1832 Mitchell was away on his exploration of New England, but by 1833 criticism of the backwardness of the survey forced Mitchell to complete this map and arrange to have it sent to London. Some toning of the map.

        Two Expeditions into the Interior of Southern Australia, during the years 1828, 1829, 1830 and 1831: with observations on the Soil, Climate, and General Resources of the Colony of New South Wales... Second Edition.

      London: Smith, Elder and Co. 1834. Two volumes, octavo, with a chart and a large folding map (crudely repaired with tape), 13 engraved plates (four of newly-discovered birds with original handcolouring); manuscript presentation dated 1874; a fine and handsome set in contemporary plum calf by Ramage, bookplates of Harold L. Sheard, bound without advertisements. Presentation copy from Sturt's widow: the rare second edition of this account of Sturt's first two expeditions: 'an important book, recounting discoveries of the highest consequence' (Australian Rare Books).A manuscript inscription in both volumes reads: 'Frederick Peake In remembrance of the Author From C.C. Sturt 1874'. Sturt married Charlotte Christiana Greene on 20 September 1834, and she lived until 1887, almost twenty years after Sturt's death. After his death Charlotte was granted a civil list pension of £80 a year, and the queen granted her the title of Lady Sturt. Frederick Peake was a close friend of Charles Sturt, as is evidenced by the correspondence between them printed in the Life of Charles Sturt (1899).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 second 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. The large folding map of Australia, sometimes missing, is present in this copy (though with an old crude tape repair at two edges).

        Dai Nihon Yochi Benran. ???????

      Tenpo 5. 1834. TWO VOLUMES, 76 double page color woodblock maps (41 35), 10 1/8 x 7 inches (26 x 18 cm), Japanese accordion style binding with decorative embossed paper covers. There is worming to many, but not all, of the pages, occasional light soiling to margins, covers quite worn. This beautiful woodblock atlas begins with a map of Japan, which is followed by maps of the individual provinces, and finally a map of the world. This map emphasises the effects on geographic knowledge of Japan's closure to outside influence, featuring California as an island, and a mapping of Australia (marked "megaranika" presumably relating to the color of the inhabitants and joined to New Guinea to the north and to Antarctica at the south) which was profoundly out of date. New Zealand does not appear on the map.
