        Nevadaville, Alt. 9,000 Feet - Gilpin Co. , Colo.

      Central City, CO: Lachlan McLean. Sepia toned photograph depicting the mining town of Nevadaville, Colorado circa 1880s. Photograph is on thick cardstock and measures 20" x 24" and has a cardboard frame which has been taped to frame by previous owner. Photograph is in very good condition. Photo has light foxing near top of photo and on title pastedown; a 2" tear starts on the left edge near the bottom, but is covered by framing; framing has moderate toning and wear; heavy toning and moderate wear on verso of photograph. Contrast is excellent. The image depicts a well-established town with many homes built on the hillside, dirt roads through town, a large schoolhouse, a church and cemetery, and many businesses on a main street. Looking closely one can see foundations of buildings that have been torn down as well as the lack of people in the streets. Although the lack of people is curious, it could be explained by being an early time of day. Tailings, mills and other equipment throughout town speak of the mining taking place. In the foreground a man in a horse drawn carriage heads up a rocky road; in the background snow-covered peaks surround the town. The detail and clarity of this image is enthralling. The creator of this image, Lachlan McLean (1843-1929) , was a known mining photographer based out of Central City, Colorado and produced photographs depicting the hardships of mining and stereoviews of scenery throughout Gilpin County, Colorado. The town of Nevadaville was a gold and silver mining town. It was also known as Nevada, Nevada City and Bald Mountain. Located one mile west of Central City, it was established in 1859 and soon boasted a population of between 4,000 and 6,000 residents. The California Mine just outside of town was a major producer of minerals, becoming the deepest mine in Colorado at a depth of 2,250 ft. It was said to be a rowdy place during that time. By 1900 the gold and silver yield declined and the population fell drastically. Today it is almost a ghost town. Although this image is undated, it was probably taken circa the 1880's when the heyday of the town was over but the mines were still productive. A more fascinating photograph is hard to find. No copies of this image in commerce or OCLC. .

      (Santiago de Cuba, 1843). - MANUSCRIT in-8 oblong. 1f. imprimé. et 55 figures accompagnés d'un feuillet de texte explicatif (sauf la planche 54 qui est accompagnée de 2 feuillets) soit 56ff. de texte. Plein veau raciné, dos lisse orné, étiquette de maroquin collée sur le plat supérieur avec, en lettres dorées: "Cuadratura del Circulo". Curieux manuscrit cubain sur la Quadrature du Cercle, ilustré de 55 figures hors-texte commentés par l'auteur sur un feuillet placé en regard. Dans un discours préliminaire l'auteur, qui était avocat à Santiago de Cuba, expose les réflexions qui l'avaient amené à composer cet ouvrage. Sur la premier contreplat figure la note manuscrite suivante signée W. H. Bliss, june 1873: "Two copies bought at the same time for 5 l - one of which, with an official petition signed by and relating to the author, and dated 'Santiago de Cuba Dec. 6 1847', to R. Louis-Philippe begging him to accept a copy of the work, was sent to Stonyhurst".

        Five lines from the end of an ALS, Signed. ?I shall be glad to hear from you or to see you, next week. Always Dear Mrs Hood, Faithfully Yours Charles Dickens.?

      [1843] 1843 - 11 x 5.5cm. Undated. Pilgrim Letters, vol. III, p534. This section from an ALS addressed to Jane Hood, wife of Thomas, is tentatively dated in pencil ?Jan 40?, but Pilgrim Letters dates it to late July 1843. Dickens only made the acquaintance of Thomas Hood after the latter?s return from abroad in 1840 and his review of Master Humphrey in The Athenaeum of 7 November 1840. By 13 April 1841, Hood was able to say in a letter: ?Boz is a very good fellow, and he and I are very good friends? It seems this fragment was written in response to a letter from Mrs Hood to Dickens of July 1843. Dickens had urgently requested that a fund be set up to assist the seven children of actor Edward ?Elton? Elt, who had tragically perished when the vessel he was sailing in struck rocks off the Northumberland coast. Mrs Hood responded on July 27th by suggesting that her husband Thomas could write a poetical address for the occasion.

        An Essay on the Tongue, in Functional Derangement of the Stomach and Bowels; With Some Observations on the Tongue's Aspect in Organic Disease of the Lungs.

      Simpkin, Marshall and Co., London 1843 - Presentation copy -- signed by Williams on FFEP. 8vo. 22.5 by 14.5 cm. xi, 119 pp. Williams was the senior physician to the Essex and Colchester Hospital. This essay provides "some observation of the tongue's aspect in organic disease of the lungs". Williams argues that observations of the tongue in a distressed patient can hold the key to diagnosing the ailment which afflicts the patient. He provides an abundance of statistical evidence, based on clinical observation. He writes, "I was induced to enter upon this inquiry from observing that the mucous membrane and papillae of the tongue presented varying aspects in functional disturbances of the stomach." This title predates Yaggy's book on cancer of the tongue, and Butlin's book on diseases of the tongue, by 40 years, and is contemporaneous with Harris' paper on the teeth, lips and tongue, read before the American Society of Dental Surgeons in 1841. Thus, it is perhaps the first, and certainly an early, study on the relationship of the appearance of the tongue to health and disease. Not in Garrison & Morton. A few neat horizontal tears of cloth on the spine. General wear besides. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

J H Hawkins Atty.”William Henry Daingerfield (1808-1878) moved from Maryland to San Antonio in 1837. He was elected the 2nd Mayor of San Antonio in 1838, becoming Chief Justice of Bexar County the same year. In 1839, Daingerfield was appointed Commissary of Purchases of the Army of the Republic of Texas. From 1840-1842, he served as a Senator in the Fifth and Sixth Texas Congresses, resigning in 1842 to become Secretary of the Treasury in the cabinet of President Sam Houston. It was as Houston’s Secretary of the Treasury that Daingerfield signed this document. In February 1844, he became Texas Minister to the Netherlands, Belgium, and the Hanse towns (the maritime cities of Germany), serving until annexation. Smallwood S.B.”Steamboat” Fields practiced law in La Grange in 1839 and served as Fayette County tax assessor from1840 until his death in 1846. He represented Fayette County in the Texas House of Representatives from 1842-1843 and was editor of the LaGrange “Intelligencer” from 1844-1845.Rutersville College was located in Rutersville, seven miles northeast of La Grange. It was the first chartered Protestant college in Texas. The coeducational school opened in 1840 with 63 students. It was the dream of Martin Ruter, a Methodist missionary from Tennessee and superintendent of the Methodist mission in Texas, who had died in 1838. The town of Rutersville developed simultaneously with the college. Enrollment reached 194 by 1844-1845, but Indian attacks, the departure of students for the Mexican War, and the establishment of Baylor University in 1845 caused a decline in the number of students. In 1856, Rutersville College was merged with Texas Monumental and Military Institute.

        Sermons on the Holy Catholic Church and Its Privileges [signed]

      James Burns, Simkin Marshall, Addisons ,, and Bailey, London, Preston, Liverpool 1843 - xv, 244 pages. Fair condition only, with spine perished and boards all but detached. Foxing to first few and final few leaves, pastedowns grubby. Textblock remains secure. Bookplate of Rev. John Cunningham to front pastedown, with authorial gift inscription to him on verso of front free endpaper. List of subscribers pp xi-xv. An interesting copy of an uncommon work: At time of publication the author was curate of Childwall [Liverpool], in 1845 he was preferred from there to the perpetual curacy of St. Philip's, Stepney - to the library of which he donated this copy [head of title page]. In early March 1847, evidently in haste, he re-gifted it to one Rev. John Cunningham: "My Dear Cunningham, As I promised you a copy of my Sermons on the Church, and as I have not one by me at present, I will give you the one in the library, and replace it. Yours ever faithfully, James Bonwell". It is most likely that this is the Rev. John Cunningham [b. London 1823] who sailed from England on the brigg Queen to arrive "in St. John's after a stormy six weeks passage May 1847" to assume pastoral duties among the communities around Burgeo Newfoundland [Newfoundland Quarterly, Vital Statistics of Burgeo, Rev. H.W. Cunningham ed.]. Rev. John Cunningham ministered there until 1894, assisted by his son H. W. from 1884-1891. The Rev. Henry Ward Cunningham would go on to be rector of St. George's church in Halifax, Nova Scotia. In that capacity he is now most noted for presiding over numerous Titanic-related services and accompanying the Minia (and her Captain his parishoner) on the quest to recover bodies around that disaster site. The deck chair the Minia crew salvaged was given to Cunningham in appreciation; his family later donated it to the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic in Halifax. He eventually settled in Hantsport, Nova Scotia. We are sorry to report that from 1859 the Rev. James Bonwell is most noted for (while married) the seduction of a young woman and the disposal of their offspring. Size: 8vo. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

A Love Story; The Chimes: A Goblin Story of Some Bells That Rang An Old Year Out and A New Year In; The Haunted Man and the Ghost's Bargain. A Fancy for Christmas-Time.

      London: Chapman & Hall, MDCCCXLIII (1843); London: Bradbury & Evans, 1846; London: Bradbury & Evans, MDCCCXLVI (1846); London: Chapman & Hall, MDCCCXLV (1845); London: Bradbury & Evans, 1848. 5 vols., 8vo., Please see below for the discussion of states and pagination. All volumes in original publisher's cloth, each book in very good condition, with bright gilt on covers and backstrips. A Christmas Carol in it's original light-brown and vertically ribbed cloth, with all edges gilt, and green endpapers, shows some slight rubbing at foot and crown of backstrip, with minor foxing near plates, and contemporary owner's signature to first free endpaper, but otherwise bright; very good. The remainder of the Christmas Books are uniformly bound in vertically ribbed red cloth, gilt stamping and lettering on covers and backstrips; all edges gilt. The Chimes with inconsequential rubbing and a touch of wear at corners and slight occasional foxing near outer plate margins; very good. The Cricket is in marvelous condition with only a little discoloration at crown of backstrip and a stain to the lower board. The Battle of Life is largely free from mentionable defect except some slight shelf wear and a contemporary ink owner's signature to the first free endpaper. The Haunted Man reveals some shelfwear to the cloth with a small split at the tail of the lower joint and the occasional freckle of foxing, otherwise very good. All are housed in a blue morocco pull-off case with gilt titling, and each (except A Christmas Carol) has a blue cloth jacket. First editions of all five of Dickens's Christmas books. With engravings by D. Maclise, R. Doyle, C. Stanfield, J. Leech, J. Tenniel, and F. Stone, Thompson, G. Dalziel, E. Dalziel, T. Williams, Swain, and Groves. A Christmas Carol is the high point and the crucial component in any set of Dickens's Christmas Books. Dickens kept its production on a short leash and anecdotes abound about his pleasure or displeasure with the differently colored endpapers, the color of the cloth for the binding, the typography and so forth. Oddly enough, despite Dickens' personal attention to this edition, it is not a particularly well-made title. Coupled with the legions of fans who often read their copies "to death," it comes as no surprise that original and well-preserved copies of this book, in its correct state, seldom appear on the market. The Chimes, written in Genoa, Italy, was commercially more successful than A Christmas Carol and Dickens worked hard to make this second Christmas book a worthy successor. The Cricket... was grew from the idea to begin a weekly periodical which would've been called "The Cricket," though was abandoned quickly for a more important venture and the founding of The Daily News. The Cricket was wildly successful, doubling in circulation of both its predecessors. Dickens wrote The Battle of Life during a period of recuperation needed after illness attributed to over-working, despite being seriously indisposed he managed to complete the work, while working on Dombey and Son, though it was not as successful as his other Christmas books thus far. The Haunted Man... was the last of the Christmas books, and despite requiring a final rally from the author to avoid disappointing the public, the book is considered the least interesting and lowest grossing of the Christmas books, the issue of 20,000 had not completely sold when the author died. All books are in their most desirable states, as follows: A Christmas Carol...: [i-viii], [1]-166, [2, ads] pp. First edition, first issue. Green endpapers; "Stave I" on pp. 1; uncorrected text throughout; red-and-blue printed title page, with four color etchings and four woodcuts, full-page color etchings with tissue guards intact. The Chimes...: [i-viii], [1]-175, [1, imprint] pp. First edition, first issue. The name of the publishers is a part of the the vignette title page as per the first issue. 11 woodcuts in text and steel engraved frontis and titlepage. The Cricket on the Hearth...: [i-viii], [1]-174, [2, ads] pp. First edition, first issue. The advertisement leaf (pp. 175) is in the first state with the two lines above OLIVER TWIST in italics. This is especially notable as Walter E. Smith (Charles Dickens in the Original Cloth, 1983) writes that the above information is "the best indication of early copies," and that "I have found the second state of the advertisement in all but a few copies of the first edition that I reviewed" (43). With steel engraved frontis and titlepage, and 12 woodcuts in text. The Battle of Life...: [i-viii], [1-3], 4-175, [3, imprint and ads]. First edition. The present issue does not contain 'A LOVE STORY' in type below the title vignette and appears only in a scroll borne by a winged cupid. There is no type insertion to the engraved titlepage. Terminal ads announce the publication in parts of Dombey and Son, and the bound volume of Oliver Twist. In addition to the engraved frontis and titlepage there are 11 woodcuts in the text. The Haunted Man and the Ghosts Bargain...: [i-viii], [1]-188 pp., with engraved frontis and title page, and 15 woodcuts in the text. Smith II 4, 5, 6, 8, 9. Eckell 116-134.

        A System of Logic, Ratiocinative and Inductive, Being a Connected View of the Principles of Evidence, and the Methods of Scientific Investigation. Two volumes.

      London: John W. Parker, 1843. 1st Edition. Hardcover. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. 8vo (221 x 142 mm). xvi, 580; xii, 624 pp. Original publisher's half cloth, spines with original printed paper labels (rebacked with original spines laid down, minor rubbing to boards and extremities, paper labels browned and soiled, spine cloth spotted, gathering b in vol. I unstitched), pages uncut. Text little age-toned, tear at lower blank margin of one leaf repaired. Provenance: both volumes inscribed to title-page versos, 'John Commins, 1845' and 'Given to Wm. Merryfield, December 24th 1859'. A very good, clean, unfoxed and unmarked set. ----Kress C.6398. FIRST EDITION of Mill's popular and infuential treatise on inductive logic. In this work Mill formulates just five principles of inductive reasoning (known as Mill's Methods) which determine whether causes and effects are connected. This method produced a system which became an important source for all the experimental sciences. Mill's book is important in the philosophy of science, and more generally, insofar as it outlines the empirical principles Mill would use to justify his moral and political philosophies. It had a strong influence on scientists such as Dirac. An article in "Philosophy of Recent Times" has described it as an 'attempt to expound a psychological system of logic within empiricist principles. - Visit our website for additional images and information.

        Historical Notes on the Lennox or Darnley Jewel: The Property of the Queen

      [London: William Nichol, Shakespeare Press, Pall Mall], 1843. First edition. Chromolithographic frontispiece by Henry Shaw. [vi], 85, [1] pp. 4to. Bound in full blue original watered cloth, stamped in gilt, a.e.g. Very fine, laid into a contemporary full crimson morocco drop box. Shaw, Henry. First edition. Chromolithographic frontispiece by Henry Shaw. [vi], 85, [1] pp. 4to. Queen Victoria bought this magnificent enamelled gold heart from the Strawberry Hill sale for £136.10 (agent Hertz), and it remains one of the most important early jewels in the Royal Collection. It is said to have been commissioned by Lady Margaret Douglas, Countess of Lennox (1515-78), for her husband Matthew Stewart, Earl of Lennox and Regent of Scotland, who fell in battle in 1571. Walpole's 1784 descriptive catalogue of Strawberry Hill and its contents described the jewel thus: "A golden heart set with jewels, and ornamented with emblematic figures enamelled, at Scottish mottoes; made by the order of the lady Margaret Douglas, mother of Henry lord Darnley, in memory of her husband Matthew Stuart, earl of Lenox and regent of Scotland, murdered by the papists." The present privately printed description was commissioned by Queen Victoria and features a fine chromolithographic frontispiece illustration of the jewel by Henry Shaw.

        A Christmas Carol. In Prose.

      London: Chapman & Hall,, 1843. Being A Ghost Story of Christmas. With illustrations by John Leech. Octavo. Original light reddish-brown vertical fine-ribbed cloth, spine and front cover decorated and lettered gilt, sides stamped in blind, green endpapers, gilt edges. Housed in a red cloth chemise and red quarter morocco solander box. Hand-coloured etched frontispiece and 3 steel-engraved plates after Leech, wood-engravings within the text by W. J. Linton after Leech; title page printed in blue & red. Binding rolled and a little dulled, a few nicks to extremities of spine. A very good copy. First edition, first impression, first issue, with "Stave I" on the first page of text and green endpapers, all the first edition textual points. The binding differs from Todd's ordering in that the closest interval between blind-stamping left margin and left extremity of gilt wreath is 15 mm but the "D" of "Dickens" within the gilt wreath has the upper serif broken off. The hand-coloured green endpapers, Dickens's original choice for his lavish gift book, proved a disappointment. The colour tended to dust off and smudge, so the endpapers were changed to yellow, not requiring hand work. Probably in the middle of binding, as demand grew faster than the current endpaper stock, it was decided to use up the green paper, and thereafter it was used indiscriminately with yellow, but discarded again when the initial supply of green became exhausted. Primary copies therefore occur with either green or yellow endpapers, some collectors preferring green as the author's original prepublication choice.

        Oeuvres [Traité de Mécanique Céleste; Exposition du Système du Monde; Théorie Analytique des Probabilités (including, as the introduction, Essai Philosophique sur les Probabilités)].

      Imprimerie Royale 1843-1847, Paris - First edition, a beautiful copy bound in contemporary red morocco with the arms of Napoleon III, of the collected works of Laplace, comprising his principal contributions to celestial mechanics and probability theory. The distinguished American historian of science Charles Gillispie considers Laplace to be ?among the most influential scientists in all history? (Pierre-Simon-Laplace, 1749-1827: A life in exact science (1997), p. vii). ?Laplace gave the world three great works: the Mécanique Céleste, the Exposition du Système du Monde, and the Théorie Analytique des Probabilités. Besides these he presented numerous important memoires before the French Academy and the Academy of Sciences. Laplace?s works were first published in seven volumes by the French government in 1843? (Richeson, p. 73). This national edition of the works of the ?Newton of France? was the result of laws passed by the two legislative chambers in 1842 and 1843, which authorised a special budget of 40,000 francs for publication. Napoleon Bonaparte?s nephew, Napoleon III (1808-73), was President of the French Second Republic (1848-52) and Emperor (1852-70) during the Second French Empire. He succeeded Louis XVIII, under whose rule Laplace had been elevated to the title of Marquis.The Traité de Mécanique Céleste, which was first published in 1799-1825, codified and developed the theories and achievements of Newton, Euler, d?Alembert, and Lagrange. In the tradition of Newton?s Principia, Laplace (1749-1827) ?applied his analytical mathematical theories to celestial bodies and concluded that the apparent changes in the motion of planets and their satellites are changes of long periods, and that the solar system is in all probability very stable? (Dibner 14). ?Laplace maintained that while all planets revolve round the sun their eccentricities and the inclinations of their orbits to each other will always remain small. He also showed that all these irregularities in movements and positions in the heavens were self-correcting, so that the whole solar system appeared to be mechanically stable. He showed that the universe was really a great self-regulating machine and the whole solar system could continue on its existing plan for an immense period of time. This was a long step forward from the Newtonian uncertainties in this respect. Laplace also offered a brilliant explanation of the secular inequalities of the mean motion of the moon about the earth - a problem which Euler and Lagrange had failed to solve. He also investigated the theory of the tides and calculated from them the mass of the moon? (PMM).The Exposition du Système du Monde is ?one of the most successful popularizations of science ever composed? (DSB). It is ?an elegant, non-mathematical classic on astronomy. It is in this work that Laplace introduced one of his most notable contributions (although he himself did not take it very seriously at first) ? the so-called nebular hypothesis, which provided a conjectural account of the origin of the solar system? (PMM). According to this hypothesis, the Sun, planets, and their moons began as a whirling cloud of gas. Laplace argued that as a hot nebula cooled, it would require a proportionately faster rate of rotation in order to conserve its angular momentum, and the increased centrifugal force resulting from this increased speed would throw out material which would eventually condense into planets. In essence, this theory of the origin of the solar system is still accepted.The Théorie Analytique des Probabilités, first published in 1812, is ?the most influential book on probability and statistics ever written? (Anders Hald), which John Herschel called ?the ne plus ultra of mathematical skill and power? (Essays from the Edinburgh and Quarterly Reviews (1857), p. 382). ?In the Théorie Laplace gave a new level of mathematical foundation and development both to probability theory and to mathematical statistics. ? [It] emerged from a long series of slow processes a

        DIE JUDENFRAGE

      Friedrich Otto, Braunschweig(1843). First edition. Modern boards, 8vo, (4) , 115 pages. While Bauer regarded emancipation from the thraldom of medievalism as the object of modern civilization, he had no sympathy whatsoever with the Jews' struggle for political, social and religious emancipation. At a time when the Jews of Germany strove hard to obtain their long-withheld political freedom and equality, and when many, in order to assert their full claim to citizenship, went so far as to urge the rejection of every vestige of Orientalism from their religious life, Bauer published "Die Judenfrage, " in which he finds the continual oppression of the Jews by the Christian state perfectly justified. He declares that by their loyalty to their own history they stand in opposition to the powers that be, because religion and race force them to live in perpetual separation from the rest of mankind, and that the fact of their being Jews prevents them from being perfect men. Judaism, whether it be based on the Mosaic or the Talmudic law, has, in Bauer's opinion, no claim to a share in the world's progress and freedom. He ridiculed the Reform movement and denied them the very right of modernization. Thus, in his opinion, there is absolutely no salvation for the Jew, not even if he should join the Christian majority. " (JE) . Bauer's attack on the Jews evoked replies from many, including Gabriel Riesser, Samuel Hirsch, Holdheim, Geiger and most significantly, Karl Marx in his "Zur Judenfrage" (1843) . Good condition, although pages are a bit brittle and browned. Important. (RAB-62-11)

      London: Smith, Elder, and Co.,, 1843. exhibited in a personal narrative of travels in that country: with an account of the proceedings of Mohammed Ali Pascha, from 1801 to 1843; interspersed with illustrations of scripture history, the fulfilment of prophecy, and the progress of civilization in the east. 2 volumes, octavo. Original green cloth (volume 1 fine-diaper, volume 2 vertical-ribbed), spines gilt lettered and blocked with Egyptian motifs), covers with differing ornamental blind panelling, yellow coated endpapers. Lithograph portrait frontispieces of Mohammed Ali and Ibrahim Pasha, 12 tinted lithograph plates (8 views), one wood engraving in the text. Spines slightly cocked and lightly sunned, inner joints of volume I cracked but sound, some foxing to plates. A very good set, with the errata slip in volume I, the cloth bindings bright and sharp-cornered. First edition of this spirited and engaging account, illustrated with simple but appealing illustrations, lithographed by Hullmandel from Yates's own sketches. "A very interesting work by a medical man who travelled extensively in Egypt c. 1840 … Yates also provides an extensive general commentary on political events in Syria, Crete and Egypt in addition to the ordinary account of his travels" (Blackmer). The Scottish doctor William Holt Yates remains a frustratingly shadowy figure. We do know that he was a member of the Royal Asiatic Society (admitted 1834) and president of both the Royal Medical and Royal Physical Societies of Edinburgh, and senior physician to the General Dispensary at Aldersgate in the City, during a time when the young David Livingstone was taking extracurricular studies there. The publication of his book was timely as there was growing interest in Egypt following the Oriental Crisis of 1840, when European powers intervened following Muhammed Ali Pasha's attempt to establish a personal empire in the Ottoman province of Egypt, subsequent to his defence of Syria from Ottoman aggression. The British and Austrian navies blockaded the Nile delta and shelled Beirut; Muhammed Ali agreed terms, ratified at the Convention of London (15 July 1840). Yates would having been travelling in Egypt hot on the heels of fellow Scot David Roberts, who visited the country in 1838-39. Well represented institutionally but decidedly uncommon commercially.

        London - 1843.

      LONDEN TIJDENS DE INDUSTRI?LE REVOLUTIE?London?, staalgravure ?drawn and engraved from authentic documents & personal observation by D.R. Davies. Published Nov 1. 1843 under the superintendence of the Society of the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge by Chapman and Hall.? In de tijd met de hand gekleurd. Afm. 39 x 63 cm.We zien Londen vanaf Kensington Palace in het westen tot aan de West India Docks (van waaruit de schepen vertrokken naar de Cara?ben, tegenwoordig deel van de Docklands/Canary Wharf) in het oosten; en vanaf Bayswater met het Caledonian Asylum (tegenwoordig Purcell School) en de New Cattle Market (gesloopt in de jaren 1950) in het noorden tot aan de cricketvelden van The Oval en de Royal Surrey Gardens (het tegenwoordige Pasley Park) in het zuiden. Interessant zijn ook de duidelijk gemarkeerde trac?s van de verschillende treinverbindingen van de London and Greenwich Railway (aangelegd 1836-38), de Blackwall Railway, de Eastern Countries Railway (aanleg begonnen in 1839) en de Birmingham Railway (geopend in 1838). Station London Victoria is er nog niet, dat opent pas in 1860.De ?Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge? was een typisch Britse ietwat archa?sche organisatie, opgericht in 1828 op initiatief van de idealistische Lord Henry Peter Brougham. Het nobele doel van de Society was om useful knowledge te verspreiden onder de Engelse arbeiders- en middenklasse, via een reeks publicaties. Zij bevorderde zelfstandig leren en het egalitair verspreiden van kennis. Hoewel de S.D.U.K. nauw verbonden was met de London University en de uitgeverijen van Baldwin and Cradock, Chapman and Hall en Charles Knight, behaalde de S.D.U.K. haar ambitieuze doelen niet en sloot het haar deuren in 1848.Waarschijnlijk was het mislukt omdat de publicaties aan de ene kant te duur waren voor de beoogde doelgroepen en anderzijds niet groot en fraai genoeg voor de aristocratische markt. Niettemin slaagde de S.D.U.K. er in om enkele buitengewone atlassen met indrukwekkende detaillering te publiceren.Hun belangrijkste atlas bestond uit ongeveer 200 afzonderlijk uitgegeven kaarten, verkrijgbaar als abonnement van 1829 tot 1844 en naderhand gecombineerd in een wereldatlas, uitgegeven bij Chapman and Hall. In die tijd was de atlas onge?venaard in kwaliteit en omvang.Tegenwoordig zijn S.D.U.K. kaarten indrukwekkende voorbeelden van cartografie uit het midden van de 19e eeuw en kennen we vooral de mooie en gedetailleerde stadsplattegronden.Prijs: ?475,-.

        THE FRIEND OF AUSTRALIA;

      - or, A Plan for Exploring the Interior, and for Carrying on a Survey of the Whole Continent of Australia. By a Retired Officer of the Hon. East India Company's Service. Illustrated with a Map of Australia, and Five Plates. Pp. xxiv+428+[2](Supplemental note, verso blank), 5 double page plates (4 being hand-coloured aquatints), large folding map at end, appendix; modern half calf, the spine ruled in gilt around raised bands, with gilt lettered and decorated maroon leather title labels; marbled papered boards; new endpapers (retaining an earlier unidentified bookplate dated 1843), pencilled signature on verso of title page, scattered light foxing; Hurst, Chance and Co. London, 1830. First edition. F. 1379; Wantrup 117a; Abbey \i Travel 11. 574. *This copy lacks the 16 page publisher's catalogue, which according to Wantrup was present only in the 'earliest issue.' A second edition, comprising unsold sheets of the first edition with a new title page and an updated preface, was published by Smith, Elder in 1836. (This firm took over the remaining stock some time after the initial publication, and by 1833 were advertising that 'only 250 copies of this expensively got up work' were printed [see Wantrup p. 193]). 'The supreme monument to the speculative geography of the 1820s and 1830s . His eccentric plan for the survey of the interior is a monument to the fascination exerted by the vast unknown interior on contemporary Europeans. He offers detailed and elaborate advice on the preparation and conduct of his proposed expedition, suggesting the importation of elephants and camels, the construction of special craft to navigate the inland sea and so on. As well, he devotes attention to other matters relating to the future of society in Australia. Everything from the planning of towns to the establishment of a bunyip aristocracy has a place on his broad canvas' [Wantrup, pp. 192-23]. The map is an imaginative depiction of the Australian continent, including a large inland sea and 'the supposed entrance of The Great River'. The plates show scenes from Maslen's proposed exploring expedition, a plan for a township, and a design for an Australian flag. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
