        Reports of the Council and Auditors of the Zoological Society of London, read at the Annual General Meeting, April 29, 1835

      Printed by Richard Taylor, London 1835 - Octavo, 26 pp., damage to the top edge, otherwise very good, stitch-sewn as issued. Kangaroos in London. A good early report of the Zoological Society of London which had been founded only nine years earlier in 1826. The report does not merely provide financial accounts but also interesting notes on the Society's gardens, and the menagerie of 220 mammals and 302 birds.Perusing the report shows that the Society was well set up for monkeys and lemurs, and had birds from all over the globe, including the Australian white-crested Cockatoo. There are notes on their breeding program, and an extensive list of acquisitions and donations, notable among them "a new species of Kangaroo and other animals from Australia" from Captain Parry, the polar explorer who had made Port Stephens his home from 1829 to 1834, and a selection of birds from North America presented by "Mr Audubon". Among other additions were a "One-horned Indian Rhinoceros" and three Curassows, hatched at the Menagerie.

        The History, Antiquities, and Topography of the County of Sussex

      Lewes: Baxter, 1835.. First edition. Two volumes expanded to three. 4to. Later nineteenth century half dark green morocco over matching cloth boards, spine with raised bands, gilt lettered to two panels, marbled endpapers, the bookplates of Edward Huth of Wykehurst Place to the front pastedowns. Complete with the standard collation of 2 folding maps, 56 copperplate engravings and 80 wood engravings in the text. The set profusely extra illustrated with 336 18th and 19th century engravings and lithographs comprising 301 black and white full page plates, 5 in colour, 14 double page plates including 8 views by Buck, 4 large folding plates including three of country seats and gardens by Kip, 5 folding maps and plans plus 10 full page and 1 double page and finally 1 original pencil drawing of a church in St. Leonard's. Just a small amount of trivial wear, a lovely set. One of the standard works on the county, covering each hundred and parish and listing the various ancient manor houses, churches and ruins as well as biographies of important figures, here considerably expanded to accommodate the numerous extra illustrations. The set has an impressive Huth provenance - Henry Huth amassed one of the great book collections of any age, later sold at Sotheby's over a number of sales in the early 20th century; his son Edward was also a keen bibliophile and put together a fine collection of books relating to the county.

      London: Ackermann, Weale, and Dolman, 1835-1851. 7 vols. in 2, large 4to, bound in full green and full red morocco, very richly stamped in gold and with onlays in green on the red volume, and the green volume with the Order of the Garter device on both covers; boards bevelled (red volume) or rolled (green volume), backstrips richly gilt, all edges on both volumes deeply gauffred. In virtually flawless condition. Full collations and plate counts as per Fowler (see below). An absolutely astonishing collection of all but one of Pugin?s major works, perhaps his own copies bound for him in unsigned bindings of the very highest quality and with his name stamped at the foot of the backstrip of the red volume. The later bookplate of Samuel Joshua Cooper is pasted in both volumes over an earlier bookplate (perhaps Pugin?s?). The only significant volume not present is his controversial book ?Contrasts?, privately issued in 1836. For detailed descriptions of each volume see Fowler 264, 261, 263, 262, 266, 268, and 272. The Bookpress suggests that the first four works were in fact issued together; perhaps the remaining three also were, as they were certainly reprinted together later by Bohn. Weinreb confirms that in his monumental ?The Arts Applied? (1975).

        Blick auf das Kapuzinerkloster bei Amalfi.

      - Öl auf Leinwand, um 1835, verso Nachlaßstempel. 20,3:30,7 cm. Literatur: I. Eichler, Carl Morgenstern. Unter besonderer Berücksichtigung seiner Schaffensphase von 1826 – 1846. Darmstadt 1976, Abb. 17b, S. 59; Ausst. Katalog: Carl Morgenstern und die Landschaftsmalerei seiner Zeit. Frankfurt am Main, Museum Giersch, 2011, Nr. 71 mit Farbabb. Die bei Eichler abgebildete Studie desselben Motivs zeigt gegenüber unserer einen etwas größeren Landschaftsausschnitt und auch den felsigen Küstenstreifen, der sich unterhalb des Klosters befindet, sowie den langen Treppenpfad, der zum Kloster hinaufführt. Auf unserem Bild, das im ganzen skizzenhafter wirkt, ist von dieser Treppe nur ein kleiner Teil zu sehen, während eine überlieferte Bleistiftzeichnung (Eichler Z 100) einen nahezu identischen Ausschnitt wiedergibt und mit „30. Aug. 1835" datiert ist. Sie ist die Vorzeichnung für ein mehrfach auftauchendes Motiv (1838 und 1840, vgl. op. cit. Ö 120 sowie Abb. 1, S. 78). Zugunsten einer genauen Beachtung der farblichen Erscheinung der Landschaft und um diese auch möglichst getreu einzufangen, hat Morgenstern im vorliegenden Bild die Architektur nur skizzenhaft erfaßt. Daß Morgenstern Amalfi sowie seine nähere Umgebung besonders schätzte, ist bei Eichler (op. cit., S. 78) folgendermaßen beschrieben: „Nach dem Aufenthalt in Capri verbringt der junge Morgenstern mit seinen Malerfreunden einige Studienwochen in der Gegend von Amalfi, ‚was eine der schönsten existierenden Partien ist’. Der Vesuv hingegen scheint den Frankfurter als Motiv nicht sonderlich gereizt zu haben, denn er hatte diesen Vulkan bereits im Juli in Begleitung seiner Malerfreunde erstiegen, dabei jedoch nur den Kraterrand in einer kleinen Faustskizze festgehalten. Nur der schönen Aussicht wegen findet er ihn ‚ungeheuer interessant’. Auch in Paestum hatte er nicht zum Zeichenstift gegriffen, denn: ‚.man bekommt die Sachen gut lithographiert.’. In der Umgegend von Amalfi entsteht dagegen eine ganze Reihe von Zeichnungen, die später als Grundlagen zu Atelierbildern dienen, wie zum Beispiel das ‚Kapuzinerkloster bei Amalfi" (17a und 17b) [.]". Bei den erwähnten Malerfreunden handelt es sich um J.G. Gmelin (1810-1854) und E. Willers (1803-1880). Der Landschaftsmaler Carl Morgenstern entstammte einer Frankfurter Künstlerfamilie, die über fünf Generationen tätig war. Er war Sohn von Johann Friedrich (1777-1844) und Vater von Friedrich Ernst Morgenstern (1853-1919). Neben seiner Lehrzeit beim Vater studierte er die altniederländische Malerei. Während seines Münchner Aufenthaltes 1832-1834 bildete er sich im Umgang mit den Landschaftsmalern C. Rottmann (1797-1850) und Chr. Morgenstern (1805-1867) weiter. 1833-1834 reiste er in die bayerischen und österreichischen Alpen. Seit 1834 hielt er sich in Italien auf, vorwiegend in Rom. Er unternahm Ausflüge ins Albaner- und Sabinergebirge, nach Neapel und dessen Umgebung (im Spätsommer 1835 hielt er sich in der Umgebung von Amalfi auf) sowie nach Sizilien. 1837 kehrte er nach Frankfurt zurück. Weitere Reisen führten ihn 1839 nach Düsseldorf, Holland, Belgien, 1841 nach Frankreich, in die Schweiz und mehrmals nach Italien. Seine italienischen Landschaftsmotive fand Morgenstern in Venedig, Neapel, der Toskana, auf Capri und Sizilien, während Ansichten von Frankfurt und dem Taunus sowie Main- und Rheinlandschaften kennzeichnend für seine Darstellungen aus dem deutschen Raum sind.

        Autograph letter signed, with entomologial content

      Montpellier 1835 - Dugès, Antoine Louis (1797-1838). Autograph letter signed, in French, to an unidentified scientific correspondent. 4pp. N.p., n.dn [ca. 1835]. 191 x 120 mm. Light toning, a few small lacunae due to removal from album, slightly affecting a few words, but very good. From French naturalist and obstetrician Antoine Dugès, co-author (with Henri Milne Edwards) of the section on arachnids in the third edition of Cuvier’s monumental Le règne animal distribué d’après son organization (1836) and author of important works on mites, worms and the osteology and myology of amphibians, as well as the influential Traité de physiologie comparée de l’homme et des animaux (1838), dedicated to Etienne Geoffroy Saint Hilaire. The present letter, written to one of Dugès’s scientific colleague, is entirely devoted to his researches on spiders, and most likely relates to the work he was doing on Cuvier’s Le règne animal: "No one knows better than you everything relating to the study of arachnids, and you will excuse the enthusiasm that motivates the request I would like to make today. I have collected and preserved in alcohol a very large number of spider species from our southern region; I found most of them in the environs of Paris and several species from Italy, Spain and even Africa, but there is one that has until now escaped my search although not rare in the northern regions of France; it is the argyroneta [water spider]. Is it rude, sir, for me to approach you in the hope of a specimen? M. Bérard, a correspondent of the Institute and my colleague at Montpellier’s Faculté de Médecine, who has volunteered to deliver you this letter, would also take care to bring me your gift if you could do this for me without troubling yourself . . . ". . . I venture to send you several specimens and various things that may possibly have not yet been communicated to you. The Filistata bicolor is the most common spider in Montpellier and its surroundings, however the male is rare . . . I send it to you in two states, prepubertal and pubertal . . . the length of the legs and of the mandibles is so different at these two stages that one could doubt their identity without the incontestable proof that I have of it . . ."

        Report of the Speeches Delivered at the Dinner Given to Capt. John Hindmarsh, R.N. on his appointment as Governor of South Australia

      W. Clowes & Sons, London 1835 - Octavo booklet, 44pp., a fine and partially unopened copy preserved in a magnificent polished calf folding case lined with moiré silk by Sangorski. Governor Hindmarsh honoured. Rare: published shortly after the establishment of South Australia as a separate colony in 1834, this pamphlet captures much of the enthusiasm surrounding the appointment of Captain John Hindmarsh as the first Governor. It records speeches delivered in honour of Hindmarsh at a large meeting held in his honour during early September 1835.The meeting of 110 gentlemen was chaired by Colonel Robert Torrens and formed 'a very influential and highly respectable company'. Throughout the proceedings speeches were delivered by John Morphett, Sir Francis Lee and George Fife Angas and others. In addition, letters of effusive congratulations were read to the assembled crowd from George Grote and the Duke of Wellington, both of whom had been supporters of the South Australian Association.Of special interest is a speech by Mr. Higgins, honorary secretary to 'The Society for the Protection and Benefit of the Aborigines of the British Colonies'. Higgins' speech comprises two full pages of small type. After a rambling introduction enriched with classical references he addresses the vital importance of the 'religious improvement' and 'intellectual advancement of the aborigines of the British colonies'. In this regard Higgins asserts 'the enlightened system of colonization to be adopted in South Australia is of itself sufficient to encourage our efforts.'The reception for Captain Hindmarsh is followed by a 14-page refutation by the advocate-general Charles Mann of adverse claims made about South Australia in the British press.

Original printed wrappers, with orthopedic vignette on front covers, atlas uncut. A little foxing, wraqppers worn but very good.First Edition. The very rare text and atlas describing Humbert's attempts at reduction of the hip. Humbert was the first to make progress on a problem unsolved in surgery since antiquity. Taking advantage of the latest information on the anatomy of the hip presented by Dupuytren and Vrolik, Humbert developed manipulative techniques which he claimed succeeded in reducing both congenital and pathological dislocations in brief sessions. While successors such as Pravaz and Gerdy considered that he achieved a transposition and not a true reduction, both acknowledged that his innovative work was the impetus to the successful reductions achieved by Pravaz in the 1840s.Humbert founded the first orthopedic hospital in France in 1817, and invented extension beds and chairs, and an instrument to measure changes produced by spinal curvatures. Inspired by Humbert, Bradford developed the traction-counter traction apparatus which became popular in the United States. A very attractive publication, with elegant lithographs and fancy typography, the Essai et Observations was probably issued in a small edition. Only three copies are listed in NUC, and no copies in Wellcome or Waller. Le Vay 246-47, 513. Valentin 120-21, 205-06.

Chromatography; or, A Treatise on Colours and Pigments, and of their Powers in Painting, etc. xix, 276 pp. Illustrated with hand-coloured engraved frontispiece and 1 engraved plate. Folio, bound in modern blue cloth. London: Charles Tilt, 1835. |~||~||~||~||~| First Edition of the most influential work on pigment chemistry written in England in the early 19th century. "In many ways, the most useful literary source concerning pigments rather than painting of the period is Field's Chromatography, published in 1835 ... The first part of Chromatography is concerned with colour theory, followed by a section in which the nature and composition of individual pigments are discussed. The last part contains some comments on oils, varnishes and picture cleaning ... From an historical point of view an important feature of the first edition is the inclusion of a large number of pigments, no matter how obscure, so that the book fills the gaps left by most of the early 19th-century books on painting." - R. D. Harley, Artists' pigments, pp. 27-28. Among the subscribers were both Constable and Turner. There were a number of later editions, but this first edition is rare, with OCLC listing only 10 copies worldwide, of which only 5 are in the US. Margin of title and first three leaves reinforced.

      London : Saunders and Otley, 1835-01-01. Hardcover. Very Good. 2 Volumes. First English edition. xliv, 333p., publisher's advert; map, viii, 462p. Bound in modern 3/4 blue leather. Gilt lettering and tooling to spine. 5 raised bands. Marbled boards. Marbled end pages. Fine binding and cover. Vol. I has a few pages with early 20th century pen underlining, otherwise the set has clean, unmarked pages with minimal tanning. Map is outlined with contemporary hand coloring, and is in very good condition with one small .5" tear at the top edge of border.First English Edition of the First Part of Tocqueville’s extremely important and influential analysis of American democracy "one of the most important texts in political literature." (PMM).Democracy in America is "the first systematic and empirical study of the effects of political power on modern society" (Nisbet). The work originated in a trip commissioned by the French government to study the American penal system in 1831-32. In 1835, the first edition of the first part of the work (Volumes I and II) was published in Paris,--and throughout the intellectual circles of Western Europe both democracy and America took on a new aspect and a new significance in political speculation (NYU, 955). Overall, Tocqueville’s conclusions were that the trend of history would irresistibly lean towards equality; and that the future of France, indeed of the Western world, was bound up with the acceptance of democratic principles, these being the one effective means of avoiding submission to tyranny (Harvey and Heseltine, 711). The first part of the work was published in French in 1835, the present English edition was issued in the same year and precede the American edition. Tocqueville wrote to Reeve providing a critique of the translation: "Without wishing to do so and by following the instinct of your opinions, you have quite vividly colored what was contrary to Democracy and almost erased what could do harm to Aristocracy." (Letter from Tocqueville to Henry Reeve, October 15, 1839) Volume I with one rear page of ads. Howes T278, 279. Sabin 96062, 96063.

        Report from the Select Committee on the Conduct of General Darling, while Governor of New South Wales. With the Minutes of Evidence, and Appendix

      London: Ordered by the House of Commons to be Printed, 1835. Foolscap folio, iv, 168 pp., marginal water-stain affects the last twenty or so leaves, title-page thumbed with small loss of a little letterpress due to past adhesion; a good copy overall in handsome quarter brown calf with gilt label. Wentworth attacks Governor Darling for cronyism, ineptitude and corruption. This report clears former governor Ralph Darling, now promoted to General, of the serious charges brought against him during the impeachment instigated by William Charles Wentworth.The charges concerned several matters, namely the dubious nature of grants of crown land made by Darling, the case of Captain Robert Robinson and the mismanagement of funds for the New South Wales Veteran Companies, and also Darling's attempts to limit the freedom of the public press. The most serious, and controversial, of the charges related to his harsh disciplinary treatment of the two soldiers Sudds and Thompson, which resulted in the death of the former.The Select Committee cleared Darling of wrongdoing, and here publishes their findings along with the testimonies provided during the investigation. With regards to the military punishment the Committee ruled 'the conduct General Darling, with respect to the punishment inflicted upon Sudds and Thompson, was, under the peculiar circumstances of the Colony, especially at that period...entirely free from blame'.Ferguson comments that this report is 'An extremely important source of information with reference to this famous case.'This copy bears the ownership signature of colonial grazier and politician Sir William John Macleay.

        Manuscript Treatise - Ophthalmology - Diseases of the Eye

      Berlin, 1835. Berlin, 1835. Unpublished medical manuscript treatise on the diseases of the eye, a primary source account from the early years of ophthalmology as a separate field from medicine. Text is in German. Qto. 420 pages on laid watermarked paper, an extensive work in a fine hand, with wide margins. Text is in German. Volume measures approximately 18 x 21 x 5 cm. Grey paper boards showing minor wear, otherwise in excellent condition, internally crisp and bright. Substantial and scholastic, the writer puts forth an exhaustive treatise on ocular disease and injury, including commentary on the optic nerve. The volume begins with a 19 page introduction, in which the writer acknowledges sources and literature from which he draws some of his research, including important physicians, ophthalmologists and professors of the latter fields from the 18th and early 19th centuries. Among them is German physician, professor of medicine and naturalist Andreas Elias Büchner (1701-1769) who wrote an important work on the origin of the nerve. He also refers to a treatise published in 1740 by Paul Simon Hilscher (1682-1748), a respected professor of medicine in Jena, and prolific author of numerous treatises covering vast topics of medicine. As well as the Germans, he selects findings and discusses various theories of French, English, Dutch and Austrian physicians. Presenting numerous eye diseases, infections, and symptoms, together with topical treatments or fascinating procedures, rich in detail, the writer divides the text into three categories, dealing with the following: 1) exterior injuries and the optic nerve: sore eyelids, injuries of the ciliary body, the lens, the capsule of the retina of the corpus vitrei, the optic nerve and cornea, burns around the eyes and to the eyeball itself... 2) various forms of inflammation: inflammatory exudates, photopsia, conjunctivitis, inflammation of the lens capsule and the lens, ocular gonorrhea, ceratitis inflammation of the cornea, inflamed lacrimal glands, natural protective agents of the eye, therapeutic agents including ointments, the effects of exposure to air... 3) diseases of the cornea with a section on cataracts: corneal abscess, empyema, hypopyon, corneal staphyloma... A work in progress, the volume ends with a heading for a new section, "Krankheiten der innern Theile des Auges; Der Graue Staar; Cataracta" [Diseases of the Inner Parts of the Eye; The Gray Cataract; Cataracts]. Little known outside of the worlds of optometry and ophthalmology, the French Revolutionary Wars' Campaign in Egypt, 1798, or rather the excessive numbers of soldiers who suffered from inflammation of the eyes (ophthalmia), and the need for specialized treatment, had a profound effect on the modernisation of ophthalmology, which was previously not recognized as a special field of medicine. Some ophthalmologic events contemporary to this manuscript: German Baron Michael Johann Baptist de Wenzel (1724-1790) became oculist to King George III of England in 1772, and his skill at removing cataracts legitimized the field. Georg Joseph Beer (1763-1821), Austrian ophthalmologist and leader of the First Viennese School of Medicine, introduced a flap operation for treatment of cataracts (Beer's operation), as well as popularizing the instrument used to perform the surgery (Beer's knife). The first dedicated ophthalmic hospital was opened in 1805 in London (now called Moorfields Eye Hospital), its founder being John Cunnigham Saunders, who risked his reputation by devoting himself and an entire hospital solely to the cure of eye diseases. At the time, patients would seek out irregular physicians, sometimes with ill repute, as traditional practitioners and surgeons largely discarded this area of study. Ernst Karl Abbe (1840-1905), German physicist, optical scientist, and entrepreneur, developed numerous optical instruments. Together with Otto Schott and Carl Zeiss, he laid the foundation of modern optics. Polymath Hermann von Helmholtz (1821-1894) invented the ophthalmoscope in 1851. He is known for his mathematics of the eye, theories of vision, ideas on the visual perception of space, color vision research, and on the sensation of tone, perception of sound, and empiricism. In physics In 1822, in Messina, Carmelo Pugliati published his treatise on cataracts and artificial eyes, "Riflessioni the ottalmiatria pratica, che la concernono pupilla artificiale et la cataratte." 22 May 1828, Albrecht von Grafe, German eye surgeon and founder of modern ophthalmology, was born. The optic nerve, also known as cranial nerve II, is a paired nerve that which carries about one million nerve fibres and transmits visual information from the retina to the brain. .

        Essai Statistique sur les Bibliothèques de Vienne précédé de la Statistique de la Bibliothèque Impériale comparée aux plus grands établissemens de ce genre anciens et modernes

      - xiv, [2], 206, [12] pp. 8vo, cont. green sheep-backed green boards maroquiné (upper cover with a minor defect), single gilt fillet round sides, flat spine gilt. Vienna: F. Volke, 1835. First edition, presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the title: "À son Altesse Monsieur le Prince Dietrichstein, hommage de l’auteur." Moritz Johann Nepomuk, Prince of Dietrichstein (1775–1864), oversaw the education of the Duke of Reichstadt, Napoleon and Marie Louise’s son, from 1815 and 1831 (and was much loved by his pupil), and later served as director of the National Library of Vienna as well as head of the "Burgtheater" (the court theater). His own natural son, Sigismond Thalberg, was one of the greatest pianists of the 19th century. Dietrichstein formed one of the most important private libraries in Vienna and the books were uniformly bound in half-green sheep with green paper boards, flat spines gilt and yellow edges. This is a most interesting work in which the author recounts the history of the Imperial Library of Vienna from its foundation in 1440 and its notable acquisitions of private libraries. Balbi compares it to other leading European libraries, describes the salaries paid, and provides accounts of many private collections of books in Vienna. With much valuable statistical information on the libraries of Europe. Fine copy, signed by Prince Dietrichstein on the free front endpaper. Balbi or the Prince has made a few corrections in the text. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

Auflage von 1835 bereits gänzlich verändert. Der Verfasser hat sich sichtlich bemüht, sein Werk dem "großen Alibert" und den großen Werken des Baillier'schen Verlages anzupassen- Das ursprünglich so bescheidene Heftchen ist zu einem Folioband mit 26 Kupfertafeln geworden, auf denen sich in farbigem Kuperstich 400 Abbildungen von Hautkrankheiten dargestellt finden. Der Stich ist von Ambroise TARDIEU und zwar meist farbiger Punktierstich. Es finden sich eine große Anzahl von Abbildungen, welche auch die pathologische Anatomie innerer Organe betreffen und welche in den früheren Werken kaum oder gar nicht begegnet sind, so. z.B. Blattern der Luftröhre und Milzbrand des Magens. Was die Diagnose anbelangt, so ist allerdings Hauttuberkulose, Syphilis und Carzinom oft noch nicht deutlich zu unterscheiden."

Four volumes. 278; 256; 136, 134; 224, 99 pp. Illustrated with 4 hand-coloured lithographic title-pages and a total of 244 hand-coloured lithographs. 8vo., 245 x 160 mm, bound in original publisher's green cloth, spine and covers stamped in gilt. Meissen: F.W. Goedsche, ca. 1835. |~||~||~||~||~| A superb set of this rare nineteenth-century survey of the costumes and customs of the world. In this copy the hand-colouring is particularly fresh. A distinguishing feature of this work is that the illustrations not only faithfully depict costumes of the world, but also that great care has been taken to set the inhabitants of the various countries in their appropriate contextual settings. The beautiful plates for this work include natural history images, ethnographic portraits, landscape views, and some technical sketches (such as a detailed sketch of an outrigger from the island of Tinian). Volume one covers Asia; volume two Africa; volume three America and Australia; and volume four Europe. Volume three includes Australian views of Port Jackson, Hobart, Sydney, the church at Parramatta, military officers exchanging gifts with an aboriginal group as well as an Australian burial party. Further, in the American section, there are plates depicting the Northern Lights down to South America with scenes of fishing among the Eskimo, a marriage in Canada, an Indian village at "Quadra-Vancouvers" island on the coast of California, Mexican gods, Brazilian hunters and a sugar-mill on a plantation in between. Similarly, the Asian volume extends from Turkey through to Unalaska in the Aleutians, with particularly fine images of Japan, China, and Kamchatka. Despite occasional minor spotting, this is a remarkably clean and brightly coloured set; virtually never found thus. The fullest and most accurate collation for this set was done for the Bavarian Staatsbibliothek of Munich. Their online catalogue offers a detailed collation; this set collates perfectly with the set in Bavaria. Colas 3027. Lipperheide 55.

        An extraordinary animal, Neither an Opossum nor a Kangaroo but having something of both

      London: T. McLean, 26 Haymarket, 1835. Lithograph measuring 447 x 305 mm., very slight foxing. "Neither an opossum nor a kangaroo..." Rare political caricature of Daniel O'Connell (1775-1847), often known as the "Liberator" or "Emancipator". The caricature is by John Doyle, a Dublin-born artist known by the pen-name "H.B." In 1827 he began producing political cartoons using the new medium of lithography, and the 1830s was the heyday of his fame. He is now also remembered as the grandfather of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.The caricature depicts a curious and frankly rather enigmatic creature, part kangaroo and part opossum (given that the first is an Australian and the second an American animal, is some broadly "new world" angle meant?). The smaller figures in the pouch are Whig MPs Lord John Russell (then leader of the Whigs in Commons), Thomas Spring Rice (an Anglo-Irish MP then on the brink of becoming Chancellor of the Exchequer) and Henry George Grey (then Secretary of War). In the 1830s all three were considered reformers particularly as regards the colonies, emigration and religious freedom, and perhaps Doyle is suggesting that they were being co-opted to O'Connell's plans.
