        Emigration to New South Wales, with a statement of the conditions

      London: D. Walther, 1838. Slim octavo, 20 pp., toned; stitch-sewn pamphlet, as issued. The Macarthur boys promote emigration to Camden. Very rare account and promotion of the voyage of the Brothers in 1836, recording one of the first attempts at systematic emigration to New South Wales, overseen by the Macarthur family. The emigrants were located at "Belmont" estate at Camden. The pamphlet begins with a list of the conditions which prospective emigrants must be able to meet, and continues with an "Account of the Mode in which an Emigration to New South Wales of Fourteen Agricultural Families from the County of Dorset, was conducted. November, 1836". The report only states that they were to established on an estate about forty miles from Sydney by 'good turnpike-road', but this is evidently the Camden property. This section includes a detailed list of the amenities and goods carried on board. The pamphlet concludes with an "Extract from the Minutes of the Evidence of the Commander of the above vessel, before a Committee on Emigration, after her arrival, in New South Wales. Sydney, June 26, 1837." This section confirms that the ship in question was the Brothers, and also mentions on two occasions the oversight of Major [Edward] Macarthur. Ferguson located the Mitchell and National Library copies only (noting that the latter has a manuscript note confirming that the employers were to be Edward, James & William Macarthur).

        ALS to Mitchell, thanking him for his gift of an advance copy of his book 'Three Expeditions into the Interior of Australia' to Queen Victoria

      London: 6 December, 1838. Single sheet, wove paper, 23 x 18.5 cm.; some wear along the old folds, but in excellent condition. A fascinating manuscript document, thanking Mitchell for his gift to Queen Victoria of his 'Work on Australia, and a Set of his Maps'. The letter is dated December 1838 (that is, slightly prior to the actual publication of Three Expeditions into the Interior of Australia), and is undoubtedly a significant document relating to Mitchell's fervent desire to be knighted: the Australian Dictionary of Biography notes that during this period Mitchell was in London, where he was much occupied with 'a long correspondence with the Colonial Office to obtain a knighthood.' Lingering doubts about some of his earlier actions delayed the process, but he was duly given the award in 1839. The letter reads: 'Sir Henry Wheatley presents his compliments to Major Mitchell, and begs to acknowledge the receipt of his letter of November 30, accompanied with a copy of his Work on Australia, and a Set of his Maps, which Sir Henry has not failed to submit to the Queen, and which Her Majesty was most graciously pleased to accept, and has directed Sir Henry to express Her Majesty's sense of Major Mitchell's attention on this occasion.' Major-General Sir Henry Wheatley, Baronet (1777-1852), was the Keeper of the Privy Purse for King William the Fourth and Queen Victoria from 1830 to 1846. He had served with the Grenadier Guards in Holland, and was aide-de-camp to Sir Harry Burrard during the Battle of Copenhagen.

        The Country Gentlemen's Architect ; Containing a Variety of Designs

      London: M. Taylor, 1838. Quarto, with 22 engraved plates (eight double-page); some foxing and offsetting, but a very good, largely unopened copy, in the original grey boards with paper label, flyleaves cut away, with the 16pp. publisher's catalogue. A very charming, but practical, pattern-book aimed at the country gentleman who wished to construct villas which looked like farms, and for genteel farmers who wanted their farms to look like villas. Lugar includes designs for cottages, farm houses and complete farm yards and detailed plans for dairies, dog kennels, hunting stables, piggeries, poultry yards and breweries. It was the last of these which was adapted by Robert and Helenus Scott in their design for a brew house (see Broadbent, The Australian Colonial House, p. 280), the drawing for which is held by the Mitchell Library. This is a nice, unsophisticated copy of this new edition - actually a reprint of the original edition of 1807, with a new title-page.

Durch eine Einladung von G. von Reutern (1794 - 1865) lernte er 1841/42 die malerische Schwalm kennen. 1842 kehrte er nach Frankfurt zurück, 1858 gründete er zusammen mit A. Burger (1824 - 1905) die "Kronberger Malerkolonie". Das Motiv "Mutter und Kind" kommt in Dielmanns Werk in vielen Varianten und in unterschiedlichen Techniken vor.

        British Colonization and Coloured Tribes

      London: William Ball, 1838. Small octavo, neat blind-stamp to title-page, bound without the 4 pp. advertisements noted by Ferguson; generally a very attractive copy in half green morocco by Sangorski, spine lettered in gilt. Scarce work by former Attorney General of NSW. An excellent copy of a surprisingly scarce work, written by a former Attorney General of New South Wales, and dedicated to the reforming MP Thomas Fowell Buxton. Although the present work includes both a legal overview and history of British colonisation, and while Bannister's ideas take in all manner of examples from New South Wales to Africa, and even as far afield as Canada, a good deal of the work is specific to the question of the settlement of New Zealand. Bannister's thesis is particularly fecund with regards to the impact of the recent 1834 slave emancipation act, and how it impacted on 'the Aborigines of British colonies.' Bannister (1790-1877) had been appointed the first Attorney-General of New South Wales, arriving in Sydney in 1824. Recognised as humane, even innocent, his career in Sydney was marked by several famous conflicts particularly with Governor Darling, and he returned to London in high dudgeon in 1826. 'By disposition philanthropic and humane, Bannister was devoted to the welfare of children, convicts and coloured inhabitants of the Empire. To his credit stand the establishment of the first infants' school in Sydney, a booklet urging the immediate abolition of transportation, numerous pamphlets on behalf of natives in the colonies, and a book entitled Humane Policy; or Justice to the Aborigines of New Settlements (London, 1830)' (ADB). Ferguson notes copies with two different sets of advertisements, but also that the text is otherwise identical.

        Holländische Flußlandschaft mit einem Haus rechts und zwei Figuren.

      . Feder und Pinsel in Braun, braun laviert, über Bleistift und Kohle, auf chamoisfarbenem festem Velin, rechts unten monogrammiert "WB.". 24,5:24,7 cm.. Nach einer kurzen Ausbildung bei Jonxis arbeitete der Landschaftsmaler Bilders - im übrigen Vater und Lehrer von A.G. Bilders (1838-1865), einem der Vertreter der Haager Schule - im wesentlichen autodidaktisch weiter und studierte die Natur in direkter Anschauung vor Ort. Reisen führten ihn auch nach Deutschland, Ansichten vom Schwarzwald, Drenthe und Groningen sind zu belegen. 1830-1833 als Freiwilliger Soldat. Tätig war er zuerst in seiner Geburtsstadt, später zog er nach Amsterdam, von häufigen Aufenthalten seit 1842 in Ooesterbeeck unterbrochen, wo er sich 1852 endgültig niederließ. In diesem Ort, der den Namen "das holländische Barbizon erhielt" hatte sich eine "Künstlerkolonie" gebildet, um Bilders selbst scharten sich mehrere Schüler, einer davon war der bekannte Maler A. Mauve (1838-1888). Bilders zählt wohl zu den bekannten holländischen Malern, die der Haager Schule vorausgingen, wenn auch in seinen Arbeiten eine mehr romantische Stimmung anklingt.

        A Lecture on South Australia; Delivered Before the Members of the Chichester Mechanics' Institution, Nov. 27, 1837

      London: W. H. Mason, 1838. Octavo, paper a little toned; bound in recent brown pebbled cloth, gilt. "… the parrot was capital eating…" Third Edition with an Appendix, containing the Regulations of the Commissioners and the dietary requirements for free emigrants. Watson's lecture is also notable for his insistence that to avoid the awful destruction of the Aborigines of the region, that they should be treated from the start as British citizens. This edition also contained for the first time extracts of letters from emigrants who had successfully established themselves in South Australia. Amongst them is John Barton Hack (1805-1884) farmer, merchant and accountant whose early jubilant letters to England were published here in part by the emigration agent Henry Watson, in order to encourage further settlement. Hack's long letter is in the form of diary entries, and gives an excellent overview of the early life of a settler: "I breakfasted this morning on damper and parrot, regular bush-fare; the parrot was capital eating." Apparently the diet agreed with Hack, for in May 1837 he also writes that he is fairly bursting out of his clothes.

        The PERPETUAL ALMANACK; or, Gentleman Soldier's Prayer Book: Showing how one Richard Middleton was taken before the Mayor of the City he was in, for using Cards in Church during Divine Service: being a droll, merry, and humurous Account

      (London), Catnach, Printer, 2, & 3, Monmouth-Court, 7 Dials, nd, circa 1838.of an odd affair that happened to a Private Soldier, in the 60th Regiment of Foot. The printer James Catnach was active in London from 1814 to 1838 but as there is a mention of Queen Victoria the broadside must date after 1837. Single sheet of thin white paper, 370 x 250 mm, 14¾ x 10 inches, 2 woodcuts beneath the title 55 x 80 mm, 2¼ x 3 inches, 1 showing Richard taken before the Mayor, the other showing Richard playing cards in church, the border to the text consists of 48 playing cards, a different suit for each side and including a total of 8 royal cards. The sheet has been folding twice, it is faintly browned in parts, with a small stain on the reverse near to lower edge which shows through slightly, otherwise clean, a touch of wear to edges, slight small creases to corners. A very good copy. The soldier caught playing at cards during the church service craftily shows the mayor how he reads the bible by identifying each card with a biblical story. This fictional story concludes with the mayor giving the soldier some money and beer, after telling him he is the cleverest man he has ever met. According to the British Museum a record of the incident can be found in Durham University Library Archives & Special Collections (Add.MS.1474). MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING.

        Seven Printed Legal Documents dealing with Land in the Estate of William Bligh

      London: Battye, Fisher & Sudlow, June 1838 - January, 1840. Seven printed legal documents, all individually stitch-sewn and folded into dockets, some legal marginalia in lead and blue pencil chiefly relating to the property "Copenhagen"; a little dusted and a few tears, but very good. Bligh's land-holdings. A good set of printed legal documents relating to the sale of Bligh's properties in New South Wales. The sale, as these papers show, was first announced in 1838 for the benefit of his six living children. 'Bligh died intestate as to his estate in New South Wales. Probate was afterwards granted on the application of Charles Hallett, Proctor, and Felix Slade, Attorney. The share of Anne, described as a "lunatic", was vested in trustees for her benefit.' (George Mackaness, The Life of Vice-Admiral Bligh, pp. 340-1). Interestingly, one of the people granted power-of-attorney in Sydney with regards to this sale was Stuart Donaldson, later the first premier of New South Wales (his name is given in the printed text as "Thomas", but struck out with a manuscript correction). The first and most significant record present here is dated 22 June 1838, and gives details of the six children, beginning with William's and Elizabeth's eldest daughter Elizabeth. This also contains details of the five main properties at stake: Copenhagen (1000 acres in the Upper Nelson), his residence Camperdown (240 acres), the property known as Mount Betham (105 acres in Parramatta), and two properties on the Hawkesbury, Simpson's Farm (110 acres) and Tylor's Farm (two separate allotments, 170 acres in total). Also present here are two copies of the 30 November 1839 "Consent to Sale", one copy of the 29 July 1839 Act dealing with the sixth share of 'Ann Campbell Bligh, Spinster, a Lunatic', and three copies of the 24 January 1840 granting of power-of-attorney in New South Wales to Stuart Alexander Donaldson and John William Gosling, both of Sydney. It is distinctly possible that this suite of documents was originally held by someone involved in the processing of "Copenhagen" in particular, as the few manuscript notes in these printed documents deal chiefly with this property.

        Autograph letter to Messrs Frederic Huth & Co

      Off the Lizard, coast of England: 10 July, 1838. Three page manuscript letter, 205 x 165 mm., on a single sheet folded in half; very good, postal stamps, remnants of red wax seal. Lhotsky worries about his specimens. Most uncommon autograph letter by the naturalist Lhotsky, written off the Cornish coast in 1838 as he returned from Hobart. Written in his difficult hand, the letter nonetheless can be shown to relate to Lhotsky's twin anxieties: concern about money, and worries about the fate of his collecting chests. Lhotsky was educated in Prague and Berlin, before joining the Bavarian Botanical Society and moving to Vienna. It was the King of Bavaria who granted him the funding to conduct research in South America and Australia, and Lhotsky duly arrived in Sydney in 1832, spending four difficult years in New South Wales during which time he made his important expedition to the Monaro and Snowy Mountains (his book, never completed, was published in Sydney and is now one of the famous rarities of inland exploration). In 1836 he moved to Hobart, where he managed to find work, including making a geological survey for Governor Franklin, but his prospects did not really improve, and he sailed for England in April 1838. Lhotsky's later career was difficult, and he died in poverty in 1866. The present letter was written to the London merchants and bankers Frederick Huth & Company of South Street, Finsbury Square. Huth had first gone into business for himself in Corunna, Spain in 1805, but by 1809 was in London. His company was at the South Street address in Finsbury from 1818 to 1839. Of slight stature, he was sometimes called the "Napoleon of the City", and his bank was considered second only to the truly global houses such as Barings or the Rothschilds. Here Lhotsky notes that he had paid the Hobart agents Willis Garrett & Co £50 for his passage, and used three chests of specimens as security for a further outstanding £30. Lhotsky asks the banker not to advance the funds until the chests are safely handed over. Manuscript material relating to Lhotsky is known to be very rare indeed, and this is a most unusual survival.

      London: Robins, 1838. First edition. Cloth, and housed in a Custom Quarter Morocco Box. Very Good. A stunning leporello of early Victorian pageantry, colored by hand, measuring 10 feet by 3.5 inches when extended, and the imagery is particularly bright and fresh, especially when compared to other leporellos depicting Victorian parades or processions from this period. Scarce, with only four institutional copies located on OCLC. Abbey Life 534. When closed, the oblong item measures 6.25 by 4 inches, and in its box it sits neatly, and elegantly, on a shelf. Occasional light foxing or soiling to the pictorial but overall remarkably clean. The folds are reinforced with fabric. The folds are not entirely even, causing some minor waviness to the paper when the boards are shut. The joints of the cloth boards somewhat crudely restored. Minor blistering to the cloth. The leporello snugly fits inside the attractive box. Minor rubbing and wear to the marbled paper of the box.

        Road near Portland Head, N.S.W

      Circa, 1838. Handcoloured lithograph, approx 380x 300mm, mounted. Drawn on stone by W. Gauci, printed by C. Hullmandel for publication. A fine Australian view from a series of six tinted lithographic plates (published as Series of Views in Australia Part 1*), published by James Tegg, Bookseller and Printer. Little is known of Westmacott, except that he was a captain in the 4th (King's Own) Regiment, and one of a number of British military naval officers who also pursued art. Westmacott was in Australia from 1831 to 1847. His published views represent the last in the chronology of work by military or naval officers in the romantic landscape tradition of the early 19th century. Another of Westmacott's drawings became the welknown lithograph by John Skinner Prout, Destruction Fire at the Albion Mills (1841). * Series of Views in Australia [1838] Six lithographs of New South Wales scenery, inscribed as follows: [Image] / [Title] / From a Drawing by Captain Westmacott, 4th Reg (or Kings Own) / On Stone by W.Gauci / Printed by C. Hullmandel. Dimensions: Image 20 x 28.7cm (7 1/4" x 11"). Printed in England during 1837 by C. Hullmandel, perhaps the finest English lithographer of the time and a pioneer of the then relatively new method of printing. According to a notice in The Australian of 15 May 1838 , this series was then published by James Tegg, Bookseller and Printer, George Street , Sydney , under the title Series of Views in Australia , Part 1. It was also noted in the advertisement in The Australian of that day as "Sold only in Sydney ". A complete set in the Mitchell Library is bound in unmarked paper covers, supposedly as issued. Each lithograph was composed of the lithographic image, plus border with engraved title and associated details (name of artist, lithographer, and printer) below. Those sections of the inscription From a Drawing and On Stone by W.Gauci were stuck onto the lithograph after printing. Six different lithographs are known. This series proved to be Westmacott's finest set of lithographs, due both to the skill of C. Hullmandel the printer and W. Gauci the artist, in reproducing his often simple drawings via the lithographic process. The original drawings for four of the lithographs are unknown. 1 Road near Portland Head. New South Wales. Lithograph 20 x 28.7cm. View at Portland Head from the mountain road, looking down upon the Hawkesbury River , near Sackville Reach and Lower Portland. A shepherd is seen by the road in the left foreground. 2. Sydney Cove, Goat Island , Darling Harbour. New South Wales. Lithograph 20 x 28.7cm. View from the North Shore looking towards Sydney Cove, Goat Island and Darling Harbour. The lithographer has printed the image in reverse, with Sydney Cove to the right instead of the left. 3. River Nepean near Menangle Ford. New South Wales Lithograph 20 x 28.7cm. View of a sheer cliff section of the Nepean River , near the Menangle Ford, and important early crossing point. Horizontal view. Reproduced in W. Mitchell & G. Sherington, Growing Up in Illawarra ( Wollongong , 1987). 4. The Bourke Falls, Illawarra. New South Wales. Lithograph 20 x 28.7cm. View of a picturesque waterfall in the Illawarra district, with two Aboriginal natives carrying spears and shield, located in the foreground. The precise locality of this view is unknown - it could possibly be the Kings Falls , west of Stanwell Park , or another west of the Illawarra Escarpment at Wollongong. Vertical view. Reproduced in Mitchell & Sherington (1987, p.10). Exhibited, C France, The Illawarra & Environs: A Pictorial Survey ( Wollongong , 1988). 5. View from Bourke's Pass on the Maneroo Range. Mount Westmacott in the distance. New South Wales. Lithograph 20 x 28.7cm. View from the Maneroo Range , with a party of Europeans and Aborigines in the foreground. Precise locality unknown. The Maneroo Range is located west of Twofold Bay on the far south coast of New South Wales. No Mount Westmacott survives in the region today, however there is a modern day Mount Westmacott located west of Waterfall, on the road between Sydney and Illawarra. See DLPX53 f.10 for a draft sepia wash drawing of this view. 6. Illawarra Lake , New South Wales Lithograph 20 x 28.7cm. View looking east from the Illawarra escarpment across Lake Illawarra towards the Pacific Ocean. Bass Point is the headland in the distance to the right. See DLPX53 f.17 for the original pencil sketch of this view. Illustrated W. Mitchell & G. Sherington, Growing Up In Illawarra (1984, p.9). Exhibited, C. France, The Illawarra & Environs: A Pictorial Survey (Wollongong City Gallery, 1988). Surviving examples from the above set of lithographs exist in a number of public and private collections, un-coloured as printed, or with contemporary hand-colouring (possibly by Westmacott or members of Hullmandel's establishment). A number of examples from the above series have been offered for sale trimmed and laid down on board. In trimming, the title, artist's and printer's name, and border is removed, leaving only the lithographic image. Some examples exhibit contemporary hand-colouring in the manner of a watercolour. It is possible they were coloured by Westmacott himself, and sold in this form.

        Private Autograph Note Signed "de Bougainville" to His Friend "cher Henry"].

      - N.p., 3 August. On a folded Octavo leaf (15,5x10 cm). 1 p. Brown ink on paper, text in French. Mild fold marks, otherwise a very good letter. "I have received your letter my dear Henry and may set a date with you for the 16th as it is most convenient for you - you may tell me where we should meet up, whether I should go to the secondary school or to your aunt's and at what sort of time. I believe that it would be better at 5 o'clock at your aunt's, but it will be as you wish. The last letter that I have received from your father was dated May 26th. He was in good health, and has mentioned at last how boring it was for me in Martinique [.]" Hyacinthe de Bougainville was a French naval officer (appointed rear admiral in 1838), circumnavigator, ambassador to Vietnam and a son of the first French circumnavigator Louis-Antoine de Bougainville (1729-1811). "As a young second-class midshipman of eighteen Hyacinthe de Bougainville participated in the 1800-02 Baudin expedition to Australia. He sailed around the world from 1824 to 1826 on board Thétis and Espérance, sent by the Minister of the Navy and the Colonies, the duc de Clermont-Tonnerre. On 12 January 1825, Hyacinthe de Bougainville led an embassy to Vietnam with Captain Courson de la Ville-Hélio, arriving in Da Nang, with the warships Thétis and Espérance. Although they had numerous presents for the Emperor, and a 28 January 1824 letter from Louis XVIII, the ambassadors could not obtain an audience from Minh M¿ng. Hyacinthe de Bougainville infiltrated Father Regéreau from the Thétis when it was anchored in Da Nang, triggering edicts of persecution against Christianity by Minh M¿ng. Bougainville visited New South Wales in 1825. That same year, he visited Port Jackson and Sydney where he set up a monument to La Pérouse in Botany Bay" (Wikipedia).

        Gen. Holt. The Leader of the Irish Rebels

      Henry Colburn, London 1838 - Engraving, 210mm x 142mm, in fine condition. A wonderful portrait of Joseph Holt (1756-1826), one of the most prominent Irish convicts of the early years of settlement at Sydney Cove. In 1798 Holt joined a band of rebels engaged in six months of guerrilla conflict near Dublin, but was captured in November of that year and sentenced to transportation. Aboard the convict transport Minerva Holt won the respect of Lieutenant William Cox (the man who oversaw the building of the road across the Blue Mountains) and became manager of his farms at Dundas and Canterbury upon their arrival. Despite displaying loyalty and great intelligence, Holt's seditious past proved a terrible burden: in September 1800 he was accused of treason and later acquitted by Governor King. Again in 1804 he was falsely accused of involvement in the rebellion at Castle Hill and sent to Norfolk Island, returning to Sydney two years later to work land he had purchased while working for Cox. Holt wisely - or luckily - avoided involvement in the Rum Rebellion, despite having earlier been charged with owning a still upon his return from Norfolk Island). Joseph Holt was officially pardoned in January 1811 and sailed for Britain on the Isabella which foundered near the Falklands, delaying his return till 1814. He regretted leaving New South Wales despite the prejudice he encountered as an Irish political prisoner. This portrait was lithographed from a painting by Robert Hammerton as a frontispiece to The Memoirs of General Holt (London 1838).

        Autograph letter to Messrs Frederic Huth & Co

      10 July, Off the Lizard, coast of England 1838 - Three page manuscript letter, 205 x 165 mm., on a single sheet folded in half; very good, postal stamps, remnants of red wax seal. Lhotsky worries about his specimens. Most uncommon autograph letter by the naturalist Lhotsky, written off the Cornish coast in 1838 as he returned from Hobart. Written in his difficult hand, the letter nonetheless can be shown to relate to Lhotsky's twin anxieties: concern about money, and worries about the fate of his collecting chests. Lhotsky was educated in Prague and Berlin, before joining the Bavarian Botanical Society and moving to Vienna. It was the King of Bavaria who granted him the funding to conduct research in South America and Australia, and Lhotsky duly arrived in Sydney in 1832, spending four difficult years in New South Wales during which time he made his important expedition to the Monaro and Snowy Mountains (his book, never completed, was published in Sydney and is now one of the famous rarities of inland exploration). In 1836 he moved to Hobart, where he managed to find work, including making a geological survey for Governor Franklin, but his prospects did not really improve, and he sailed for England in April 1838. Lhotsky's later career was difficult, and he died in poverty in 1866. The present letter was written to the London merchants and bankers Frederick Huth & Company of South Street, Finsbury Square. Huth had first gone into business for himself in Corunna, Spain in 1805, but by 1809 was in London. His company was at the South Street address in Finsbury from 1818 to 1839. Of slight stature, he was sometimes called the "Napoleon of the City", and his bank was considered second only to the truly global houses such as Barings or the Rothschilds. Here Lhotsky notes that he had paid the Hobart agents Willis Garrett & Co £50 for his passage, and used three chests of specimens as security for a further outstanding £30. Lhotsky asks the banker not to advance the funds until the chests are safely handed over. Manuscript material relating to Lhotsky is known to be very rare indeed, and this is a most unusual survival.
