        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.

        Winter Studies and Summer Rambles in Canada.

      London: Saunders and Otley, 1838. - 3 volumes. 12mo., (7 ½ x 4 ¾ inches). (Light spotting to endpapers). Contemporary half tan calf, marbled paper boards, the spine in six compartments with five raised bands decorated with gilt tooling, with black morocco lettering piece in one (slightly scuffed, especially at extremities). Provenance: Two contemporary manuscript ownership inscriptions: "Sophia Collins 1840" (title page) and Arthurine T. Collins 1867 (verso of front free endpaper); bookplate of John M. Cameron to front pastedown First edition. "Mrs. Jameson" was a British writer, feminist, and traveler. "Winter studies and summer rambles in Canada, published in London in 1838, is the record of both her winter in Toronto and her summer trip. In "Winter studies," written in the form of a journal to an absent friend, she intersperses notes on the frigidity of weather and society with lively characterizations of the few people Her sharp and witty analysis of the current political factions, in those months rising toward the crisis of the rebellion, begins with a general indictment: 'There reigns here a hateful factious spirit in political matters, but for the present no public or patriotic feeling, no recognition of general or generous principles of policy: as yet I have met with none of these. Canada is a colony, not a country' In "Summer rambles" we see Anna at her best, an intrepid, adaptable, enthusiastic explorer, intensely interested in everyone she meets (Colonel Thomas Talbot being a lively example) and everything she experiences. She was delighted to be "the first European female" to shoot the rapids at the Sault, her companion a part-Indian friend, George Johnston. Escorted homeward down Lake Huron in a bateau rowed by four voyageurs, she was awestruck by the unspoiled beauty of the islands around her, "fairy Edens" as she called them She spiced her account of the tour with well-authenticated Indian lore gathered both from her reading and from her visit with Henry Rowe Schoolcraft and his family at Michilimackinac. The comparative position of women among whites and Indians is also a major theme, as is the need for women's education according to their various spheres of opportunity The critical and popular success of Winter studies and summer rambles reinforced Anna's reputation as a writer - but Robert Jameson, she reported, was 'displeased' (Clara Thomas for DCB). John M. Cameron was a prominent Chicago attorney (Custer & Cameron) during the first part of the 20th Century, as well as President of the Chicago Literary Club in the early 1930s. A very nice copy of a 19th-century feminist travelogue.

Engraved frontispiece and title-page vignette to each, 7 engraved illustrations to the text in all. A little rubbed, some minor stripping from the boards, light browning, but clean, sound, and remains extremely attractive. First edition. "Spencer had spent some years in Germany, translating Pückler Muskau&#39;s Tutti-Frutti and producing Sketches in Germany. From there he went on to to Turkey in 1836 - it is not clear how long he remained in the Levant but according to his own account he travelled extensively in the Caucasus, along the shores of the Black Sea &#133; and in Asia Minor. An article in the Quarterly Review of 1837 casts doubt on Spencer&#39;s work. Although he may have travelled in Turkey, the reviewer believed that Spencer had used, without acknowledgement, a great deal of material from a work on Circassia by Taitbout de Marigny" (Blackmer) He published a series of books based on his "experiences" of which this is the second, and also wrote a number of novels with "Oriental" settings including a three-decker entitled The Prophet of the Caucasus: an historical romance of Krim-Tatary (1854). As Leonora Navari remarks, Spencer "exploited whatever experiences he had to the utmost" (Atabey). Eton leaving inscription dated 1845 to the first blank in volume I. A nice copy of an interesting book, Ingalton did very pretty work.

        The Great South Land: Four Articles on Emigration designed to exhibit the Principles and Progress of the new colony, South Australia

      E. Johnstone, Stirling 1838 - Octavo, 31 pp., folding engraved map; paper with some staining and some tears, the map very good, early owner's name; in contemporary rough card wrappers, stitch-sewn, "Australia" in manuscript to front, in red quarter morocco box by Sangorski. Printed for the Scottish market. Rare: Scottish-printed appeal, showing the South Australian Company still promoting emigration well after the settlement was established. The book is based on articles which had appeared in the Stirling Observer in March 1838; it includes a short "advertisement by the publisher" printing a letter from John Hutt the Superintendent of Emigration, and also openly encourages the curious to apply directly to the South Australian Company in London. A 3-page postscript prints excerpts from Macarthur's Emigration to New South Wales, on the grounds that Sydney and Adelaide are 'situated nearly in the same latitude.' The other interesting inclusion is a later issue of the map of "Part of Southern Australia", based on that in the 1834 work South Australia. Outline of the plan of a proposed colony with the details of the Murray River. This issue of the map was printed by "J. Grieve, Zinco., 33 Nicholas Lane"; John Grieve was a lithographer and zincographer based in London, which is interesting because the Scottish publisher of the book must have been supplied with the maps from London, no doubt at the behest of the South Australian Company.

In Horae Paulinae Paley showed he was thoroughly versed in St Paul&#39;s teachings, to which he applied a good deal of original criticism. He mounted a detailed comparison between Paul&#39;s epistles and the Acts of the Apostles, concluding that the similarities between the two reinforced the authenticity of the testimony they contained. In so doing he demonstrated that Paul&#39;s letters were not the contrived product of a personal or political agenda but rather were an authentic source of early Christian history -DNB.
