        Rare Chinese Opium War Watercolour Album....

      36 watercolours in a large Chinese traditional handmade album covered in dark blue silk. The watercolours vary very slightly in size but most measure approximately 30 x 58.5cm. Each painting is surrounded by a plain paper border framing it on the page. The album measures 34cm x 67.5cm. The album and the paintings show a little wear, browning and soiling in places. Two leaves have a small crease where a 3 x 2.5cm section is torn at one edge, on a few leaves the paper border is missing or loose in places. Paper border insect damaged along the upper edge of one leaf. Paper lining on the inside upper cover detached at gutter. However, although signs of age and use are evident, the album and paintings are generally sound and clean.Provenance: Mary Ann Frederica Harrison 1838-1910, the wife of Thomas (1835 - 1892) a tea merchant in Canton. Mary Ann Frederica Harrison lived in Canton from 1867 until the early 1890's. Then by family descent. In many ways, this album of paintings encapsulates the gradual but fundamental shift in the nature of international relations with China consequent upon the First Opium War, as Chinese historians prefer to style it nowadays. The War of 1839-42 marked an end to China's old relationship with the West, and the beginning of a long period of national humiliation during which China was obliged to open more and more ports to foreign trade by international treaties and agreements (which is why such ports were styled "treaty ports") and, before long, to receive foreign ambassadors at its capital.Half the paintings in the album depict the old trading relationship before the War, when merchants from the West did trade with China on China's terms, and before the Imperial Commissioner Lin Zexu's attempts to stop the import of foreign opium in mid 1839 and assert Chinese sovereignty. The other half epitomize the changed situation in which Chinese artists were either directed, or chose, to hide a disastrous war behind a series of triumphant representations of successful military encounters which were almost all pure fiction. Interestingly, all save one of the 36 paintings relates to the Canton area of Guangdong. Commissioner Lin's efforts to stop the import of opium were largely confined to the environs of Canton, whilst hostilities began in the Canton River and the Pearl River Delta. The principal and most interesting painting in the album depicts Lin's "capture and trial" of Captain Charles Elliot, RN, the British Chief Superintendent of Trade, albeit these events were entirely fanciful and never occurred. Further proof of location is provided by another picture on which Chinese forces are stated on the accompanying text to be from the Shengpeng Charitable School (the name of their headquarters) and from the Sanyuanli villages. These were among the local militia comprising peasant farmers from areas north of Canton, armed only with spears, swords and shields, and led by local gentry, which opposed the British attack on the city in May 1841. The Sanyuanli villages, in particular, became renowned for their fiercely patriotic and anti-British spirit which became enshrined in Chinese popular literature on the War, then and to this day.The majority of the military paintings depict encounters between British troops and Chinese forces. There is no attempt to depict actual uniforms, and the forces on both sides are drawn in ink outline, and painted in a light green and red flat wash. The British are all shown with orange-red hair, in accordance with the nickname commonly in use for Britons among Chinese people in Canton at that time, the equivalent of "Rufus" and with the same meaning.In many of the paintings, British soldiers are being killed, wounded, or captured. In fact, the paintings depict what seldom happened, since the reverse was usually the case in most of the fighting. Later in the War kidnapping or enticing were favoured Chinese means of inflicting casualties on their enemies, whilst disease was by far the deadliest killer of British soldiers and sailors. Thus, like the imagined capture of Captain Elliot, the paintings are mostly representations of wishful thinking, and may be described as a kind of propaganda designed to show the Opium War in a light more favourable to the Chinese than was warranted by the facts.The other group of paintings - we may style them "trading pictures" - are also to be associated with Canton, which was then the only officially-authorized centre for trade with western countries. They depict scenes in which Chinese and Western merchants engage in friendly intercourse during business transactions in the "Foreign Factories" for long located there. The British are shown in top hats, whilst the Chinese merchants are in long robes and carry fans. One merchant is attended by two servants, one of them carrying a cup of tea on a tray, the other a long-stemmed tobacco pipe. The items of trade on display are being brought out in boxes, barrels, or bales by shirtless coolies.The Canton connection is further strengthened by the texts which appear on some of the paintings. Although disappointingly lacking in information on the paintings, some display signs of being Cantonese in grammar and composition. Moreover, the album's provenance is from Canton. Yet the Opium War was not confined to the South. The British fleet of warships and troopships ranged along the coast, occupying several cities, ultimately capturing Shanghai and other places along the Yangzi, and dictating peace to Chinese commissioners at Nanjing in 1842.The one exception to Canton and the War of 1839-42 in the South depicts an event - for once a Chinese victory - in the Second Opium War, as Chinese historians style the period of further hostilities in 1856-1859. Against Chinese wishes, the British and French Commissioners had wished to proceed to Beijing in person to ratify another treaty (the Tianjin Treaty) made in 1858. This resulted in a failed attempt by a combined Anglo-French fleet to capture the Dagu forts and open the Beihe river causing heavy casualties in warships and men. This forcing of the Beihe river led to Tientsin which was within easy reach of Beijing by land. An American gunboat also features in the painting, though it was present as an observer not as a combatant, making it certain that this was the event in question.For whom were such pictures intended? Whilst this particular set seems to have been assembled for a western purchaser, it would seem that these paintings would have had a much wider market at home in China, to be reached through the medium of wood-block printing. In the days before modern newspapers and photographic images, this was the universal means of reaching the public at large, whether by government notices and proclamations, or by commercial advertising of all kinds, and all over China. In one especially favoured format, they were also used to produce the lunar new year pictures (or nianhua) that had long been a universally popular kind of home decoration. Auspicious topics predominated, but warlike scenes - and always of imperial victories in different conflicts - were included. Paintings such as those in the album could be copied onto wood-blocks of different sizes (since some prints had to be large enough to be pasted on walls) and used to run off multiple copies. There was also the smaller market for the paintings themselves, which were copied in many Canton workshops and studios specializing in producing reproductions intended to be sold individually or in sets. They included those made for sale as "souvenir pictures" for Western visitors or sojourners, as with this particular album.Whilst there are no signs that any paintings are missing from this album, it is likely that those included were a selection of those available at the time. This said, our enquiries indicate that examples of paintings and wood-block prints of this sort are nowadays difficult to find, most probably on account of their being "political ephemera" rather than scholarly artistic works. There is still much research to be done in this field. We have not found an album of similar content which has been offered for sale or is held in an institution. A rare and profoundly important album. (When referring to this item please quote stockid 155794)....

        The Koran, commonly called Al Koran of Mohammed

      London Printed for Charles Daly 1838 8vo; xiv, [2], 133, 471, [1]pp, with all five plates present and in superb condition: frontispiece of a folding view and plan of the Temple of Mecca; three genealogical tables (2 folding), and a folding map of Arabia and the surrounding countries. Original green cloth, the sides stamped in blind with acanthus leaf designs and borders, the spine lettered in gilt, very expertly rebacked by Fitterer. Provenance: bookplate of Standish McCleary, bearing the motto, "Faciendi Plures Libros Nullus Est Finis," to the front fly leaf. A rare survival (WorldCat lists only six copies), the contents clean and bright, the binding tight and secure with no loose or missing pages. OCLC Number: 505118764. Near Fine Sale's translation, originally published in 1734, remained the most widely available English rendition for more than 200 years, and is still widely available today, with the recent release of an electronic edition for the Kindle. Sale provided numerous notes and a "Preliminary Discourse" manifesting in-depth knowledge of Eastern habits, manners, traditions, and laws. According to the ODNB, as late as 1921, "Edward Denison Ross claimed that Sale's version had not been superseded by any subsequent translation, and that his discourse still remained the best introduction in any European language to the study of Islam. More than fifty years later Sale's objectivity still guarded him from criticism in Edward Said's Orientalism (1978)." Remarkable, considering that Sale's translation was only the second English version, the first, in 1649, coming from the pen of Alexander Ross, and was not based on the original Arabic (as was Sale's), but was on a French version by André du Ryer, the French consul in Alexandria. Sale's presumed partiality to Islam made his translation controversial, but it found an "appreciative readership among the scholars and philosophers of the British and continental Enlightenment." Edward Gibbon, who knew no oriental languages, used Sale's translation and 'preliminary discourse' in compiling the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, and Voltaire owned a copy of the original 1734 edition."

        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; postal stamps, remnants of red wax seal. 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.Messrs Frederic Huth & CoN3South Street &Times SquareLondonOff the Lizard Coast of England10 July 38Wohlgeborener Herr!Ich habe die Ehre Ihnen anzuzeigen, daß ich für eine Zeitlang Australien verlaßen habe, um meine Reiseberichte zu drucken, u. andere _________ Geschäfte in England abzumachen. Ich nehme mich die Freyheit Ihnen von hier zu schreiben, u. das einer Geschäfter wegen. Ich habe in Hobartoon £50.0.0 für meine Passage bezahlt, u. die Herrn Willis & Garrett mitzuteilte, daß ich ihm, für die nachständigen £30.0.0 drey große Kisten als Sicherheit gabe, übrigens erwähnen, das ich zeitweilig Geldes durch Ihr Haus erhalte, welche ich ihm gleichfalls als Sicherheit darboth. __________ wurde angenommen. Wie es aber in Botany Bay zu gehen pflegt, so wurde ich ein paar Stunden von unsere Abreise, an Bord des Schiffes veranlaßt, nach übrigens Wechselbriefe zu diesen Betrags zu unterzeichnen. Zum Glück besitze ich eine Berechnung, voraus erhellt, daß meine 3 Kisten eine Sicherheit für diese £30.0.0 sind. Ich bitte daher Eure Wohlgeb. (auf den fall, daß Sie Gelde für mich haben), diesen Wechsel nicht zu bezahlen, weil sonst jeden Anhaltspunkt, meine Kisten in guten Zustände vom Schiffe zu erhalten, ___________ möchte. Sind Gelder da, so soll Zahlung und Ablieferung die Kisten unter einen geschehe; sind keine da, so will ich das Uebrigen selbst wiederstatten. Jedoch bitte ich Auslegen (____________) zu vermeiden. In ein paar Tagen werde ich die Ehre haben, Ihnen letzlich nach meinem vielen gemachten persönlich abzustatten. MitAchtung J. Lhotzky. C. T. Die 3 Kisten enthalten den besten Theil meiner gemachten Sammlungen.Huth is a banker, and Lhotzky writes to him from off the Lizard Coast to advise that he has left Australia for a while to have the report of his travels printed and to transact other business in England. He takes the liberty to write to advise that he had paid £50 for his passage and had offered the firm of Willis & Garrett three large chests containing the best of the collections that he had made as security for the outstanding £30. He did not have time, however, to get the bill of exchange signed in Botany Bay. He is fortunate to have a valuation for the chests, and offers them to Huth as security, but requests that Huth not advance the funds until the chests are safely handed over. In a few days he will be able to report on the many things he has done personally. Very good.

        Minute and Cash Book for the 'Loyal Star of Providence (Oddfellows) Lodge', Crowland, near Peterborough, Cambridgeshire 1838-1844.

      1838-1844 4to notebook, 228pp completed in manuscript. Half black sheep, marbled boards a little rubbed.Manuscript record of the activities of this Oddfellows Lodge from its inception in 1838 to July 10th 1844, giving details of Lodge and Committee meetings and finances. At the opening of the Lodge on October 8th there appear to have been ten members: Bro. William Smith, 'Noble Grand (Master)', Isic (sic) Phillips, Vice, John Hackworth, Secretary, Jeremiah Askew, Warden, Thomas Booth 'Outdoor Tyler', James Ellis 'Inside ditto', John Kirby 'R-H-S to NG', Charles Hickling (crossed through, replaced by William Whittle) 'L-H-S to NG', Thomas Clark, Treasurer, with post of Assistant Secretary left vacant. The officers names are updated to April 7th 1841. Funds were raised from Initiations, Subscriptions, Goods Sold, Fines paid and 'Proposition Money'. As membership and funds increase, services such as a retained surgeon, sick relief and funding for funerals are introduced. By October 1839, almost 100 people were 'invited to attend the anniversary' - an important annual celebration. All is not plain sailing: there is a 'Protest' to the District Officers at Wisbeach (sic) for not giving sufficient assistance, while one of them, P. Gill, charged a fee for 'casual instruction' while he had 'accidentally' passed through Crowland - a charge which was swiftly 'crossed from our bill'. The Lodge also fought against being forced to join a District Funeral Fund having set up their own and against a suggestion that the Lodge join up with Whittlesea. As well as settling internal disputes between Brothers, in January 1839 it was proposed that the venue for meetings be changed owing to the 'conduct of the hostess' and 'through the immorality practised in the next room' (presumably by either Mrs Clark or Thomas Clark, the treasurer); after a vote, gatherings would henceforth take place 'at the House of Abraham Blood - known by the sign of the George Hotel.' In May 1839, Henry Girdlestone was elected an Honorary Member having wagered that he could walk a thousand miles in a hundred days - and in fact completed 1,025 miles in 49 days. The 'Oddfellows' emerged from mediaeval trade guilds as friendly societies for mutual support by and for members in times of sickness and bad luck. Compared with freemasonic lodges centred on one trade or profession, members were working class tradesmen and craftsmen - such as wheelwrights, carters, labourers, millers, farmers and bricklayers - 'oddfellows' from an assortment of trades. This detailed manuscript record gives a very clear picture of such a friendly society, its fund-raising, disbursements, disputes and management.

        Copy of a Despatch from Lieut.-Governor Sir John Franklin, to Lord Glenelg... relative to the present system of Convict Discipline in Van Diemen's Land.

      London: by order of Parliament, 1838. Tall quarto, fine in an attractive red crushed morocco binding by Sangorski, spine in raised bands with gilt lettering. Detailed report on convict management prepared shortly after the arrival of Governor Sir John Franklin in Van Diemen's Land. The document was issued at the beginning of Franklin's rule, and amasses information relating to the system created by the Governor George Arthur (whose regulations are here printed over 11 pages). Accordingly, it is a benchmark publication for the convict history of Tasmania. It includes testimonials and documents submitted by most of the major players in the penal system, including men who later became bitter enemies of the new Governor. The report incorporates an evaluation of convict discipline by Captain Alexander Maconochie who travelled from Britain to serve as Franklin's private secretary. Although dismissed in 1838, Maconochie later served as Superintendent of Norfolk Island and is regarded as the most enlightened penal reformer working in Australia during the transportation era.The lengthy appendices to this volume are a goldmine of detailed biographical and statistical information for the year 1837, detailing pardons, tickets of leave, the sentencing of recidivist convicts and much more.

        Pathological Anatomy. Illustrations of the Elementary Forms of Diseases

      London: Longman, Orme, Brown, Green and Longman for the author, 1838. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Folio - over 12 - 15" tall. Folio (362 x 268 mm). 109 unnumbered leaves, 48 fine hand-colored lithographed plates after Carswell, protected by tissue guards. Contemporary half calf over marbled boards, spine with black label lettered in gilt (boards and extremities rubbed, boards somewhat bent outward, upper joint split at head of spine, spine ends and label chipped), marbled endpapers. Some light browning and occasional, mainly marginal, spotting to text and plates. Provenance: Royal College of Physicians of Ireland (ink stamp on title verso). A good unstained copy. ----Eimas, Heirs of Hippocrates 1501; Norman 408; Osler 2250; Garrison-Morton 2291; Goldschmid 156; Wellcome II, p.306. - FIRST EDITION IN BOOK FORM. Carswell's atlas, which he illustrated himself, is one of the most beautiful atlases of pathology. The work was originally issued in 12 fascicules between January 1833 and January 1838, and it was then issued in book form, in an edition which probably did not exceed 300 copies. The work's importance was swiftly recognized, and it remained esteemed throughout the century, as J. F. Payne's opinion of 1886 demonstrates: "These illustrations have, for artistic merit and for fidelity, never been surpassed, while the matter represents the highest point which the science of morbid anatomy had reached before the introduction of the microscope" (DNB). Sir William Osler, who began his career as a pathologist, notes: "Carswell... studied morbid anatomy in Paris under Louis. He was commissioned by University College, London, to prepare a collection of pathological drawings, and in about three years (1828-31) he completed a series of 2,000 water-colour drawings of diseased structures, which is still preserved at the College, where he was appointed professor of anatomy. The plates for his great work on pathological anatomy were furnished from his own drawings and put upon the stone by himself. These illustrations have, for artistic merit and for fidelity, never been surpassed, while the matter represents the highest point which the science of morbid anatomy had reached before the introduction of the microscope" (Osler, Bibliotheca Osleriana, 2250). Rivaled for beauty and accuracy only by Cruveilhier's Anatomie pathologique du corps humain, this work "is rightly regarded as one of the finest pathological atlases ever produced." (Eimas, Heirs of Hippocrates 1501). "The beautiful hand-colored lithographed plates ... include good representations of post-mortem digestion of the stomach, cirrhosis of the liver, dry gangrene of the toes, endocarditis, and tuberculosis of the lungs and intestine" (Norman); these plates also include "the first illustration (in color) 'of the brain in general paralysis of the insane'" (Hunter and MacAlpine, Three Hundred Years of Psychiatry, 1535-1860, p. 784). Very Good.

        On the Functions of the Cerebellum, by Drs Gall, Vimont, and Broussais, translated . by George Combe; Also Answers to the Objections Urged Against Phrenology by Drs Roget, Rudolphi, Prichard, and Tiedemann, by George Combe and Dr. A. Combe.

      - Edinburgh, MacLachlan & Stewart 1838. Octavo publisher's patterned cloth with paper spine label (a bit marked); xliv,339pp, a few illustrations. A mild tidemark on the endpapers but no further in. An appealing copy even without the inscription 'To Dr. A. Brigham with best regards from Geo.Combe 12 November 1838'. First edition and a pretty fabulous association. Amariah Brigham was a founder of American psychiatry and, like many well-meaning reformers and progressives in the field, held to phrenological principles. Combe was in America in November 1838, it was early in his American lecture tour - a stay of two years - and had met Brigham on his arrival in New York. Brigham was more or less in charge of arranging the lecture tour. The date of this inscription is puzzling: Combe's entry for November 12 in 'Notes on the United States of America' (1841) recounts a visit to Salem but nothing more. So why this day? The book itself is one of the central pillars of Combe's, all the early phrenologists, attempt to establish a sound scientific and reasoned basis for phrenology in the face of ridicule and attacks of more respectable and respected scientists.

        Memoirs of Charles Mathews, Comedian

      - London - Richard Bentley 1838 - An attractively bound four volume set of the memoirs of Charles Mathews by his wife Anne Jackson Mathews. In signed bindings by C. Lewis. Collated complete. Charles Mathews (1776-1835) was an English theatre manager and comic actor, well known during his time for his gift of impersonation and table entertainment. His play, At Home, in which he played every character, was the first monopolylogue and the defining work in the genre. Mathews started off in his career by playing bit parts in plays, but in 1803 he made his first London appearance at the Haymarket as Jabel in Richard Cumberland's The Jew and as Lingo in The Agreeable Surprise. His gift for mimicry enabled him to disguise his personality without a change of costume. His originality and versatility were best displayed in his one-man show entitled At Home or, Mathews At Home, which he initiated in the Lyceum Theatre in 1908. The show combined mimicry, storytelling, recitations, improvisations, quick-change artistry and comic song. Each volume contains a frontispiece. Volumes I and IV each contain two plates. Volumes II and III each contain 4 plates. Condition: Insigned calfbindings by C. Lewis. Externally, sound with some shelfwear, handling marks and light spotting to boards. Internally, firmly bound. Pages bright with someoccasional spotting. Previous owner's bookplates to front pastedowns of each volume. Overall: VERY GOOD. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Erste Ausgaben.- Alfred von Reumont (1808 - 1887) war lange Jahre Diplomat in preussischen Diensten in Rom und Florenz, ein angesehener quellenorientierter Erforscher der italienischen Geschichte und Kulturgeschichte, auch ein historischer Publizist auf Seiten der liberalen "Moderati". In Wissenschaft und Publizistik galt Reumont als einer der großen Brückenbauer zwischen Italien und Deutschland. Sein Jahrbuch "Italia" sollte denn auch für seine deutschen Landsleute "das Land, dessen Namen es führt, in einer Reihe einzelner Bilder auffassen und darstellen". Dazu konnte Reumont eine Reihe ausgezeichneter Literaten und Historiker als "Geber" hochwertiger Beiträge gewinnen.- Goed. XVII,1141,71; s. die Besprechung des 1. Bandes von H. Friedländer in: Blätter für literarische Unterhaltung, Nr. 160, 9. Juni 1838, Seite 651. 501 gr. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Naturalist's Library: Ornithology - Birds of Great Britain and Ireland (4 Volume Set)

      London: Henry G. Bohn. Good with no dust jacket. 1838-1843. Hardcover. Four volume set, The Naturalist's Library: Ornithology - Birds of Great Britain and Ireland, is in good condition, complete with all full-page hand-colored engravings by William Home Lizars. Volumes have red cloth covered boards with blind-stamped borders with gilt-stamped flourish on the front cover and gilt-stamped spines. Back covers are blind-stamped. All volumes have shelfworn covers that are chipping around the edges, bumped corners, soil markings, faded spines and dusty gilt-topped text blocks. They all have lightly toned pages inside, some small soil markings, some bumped or dogeared pages and very faint signs of foxing. Volumes I-III have cracked hinges. But they are all complete, collectible books for birders. Each volume is illustrated with very fine color and black and white engravings and include a fontispiece portait and tribute to a different Scottish naturalist. The engravings are so detailed that they are often sold individually. The 7th Baronet of Applegarth, Sir William Jardine, was a Scottish ornithologist who helped popularize natural history in Victorian society with his well-received books. He was also known as an avid outdoorsman and for his library and personal natural history collection, which were said to be the finest in Britain at the time. Scans available upon request. ; Engravings; 12mo 7" - 7½" tall .

        Petit traité des maladies du sein

      (4), XIX, (1bl), 727 Paris, Rignoux, 1838, in-8, (4), XIX, (1bl), 727, (1bl)pp, 8 pl, broché, Edition pré-originale, fort rare. La première édition paraitra en 1854 ; elle comptera plus de 700 pages et 8 planches de gravures. Le présent Petit traité est extrait du Dictionnaire de Médecine dit, sur la page de titre, "en 25 volumes". Il s'agit probablement de l'Adelon et Béclard. Velpeau conjugue, avec cette publication, ces études des cas de maladie cancéreuse et ses théories de médecine opératoire. Il divise son traité en fonction des morphologies étudiées : maladies des mamelles chez la femme (inflammations, engorgements, abcès, contusions et dépôts sanguins et tumeurs), chez l'homme (squirrhe et kyste), chez les nouveau-nés ; puis selon les techniques chirurgicales employées (amputations ou bandages). Malgré des piqûres éparses, bon exemplaire de ce rare traité qui forme le canevas de la future grande monographie de Velpeau sur les maladies du sein et de la région mammaire.
