        Original Drawings by Robert Cruikshank [for] Chronicles of the Bastille

      London, 1845. Full Morocco. Cloth Slipcase.. Fine. 4to. 27 by 20 cm. The Chronicles of the Bastille, Louis Alexis Chamerovzow, first appeared in 1845 and featured Cruikshank's drawings. The twelve watercolors here are dated 1844 or1845. Also, embedded into the back of the front cover is the steel plate used to make the steel engraved title page of the novel. As a title page an engraved copy of this plate is used. On the backs, and sometimes in the margins, are light pencil notes that serve as captions for the watercolors and provide information as to placement in the book. It is unknown whether these notes were preliminary to the publication or were done by a later hand. Bound elegantly by H. Zucker of Philadelphia, with gilt filets and turn-ins.

        Alexander Macleay

      for the Linnean Society, London 1845 - Engraving, 243 x 300 mm. (plate size), slight browning yet very good. Fine engraved portrait of Alexander Macleay, after the oil painting by Sir Thomas Lawrence commissioned by the Linnean Society and displayed in their prestigious portrait gallery of eminent naturalists at Burlington House, London. Macleay was Secretary of the Society from 1798 until his departure to Australia in 1825. Macleay was Colonial Secretary for New South Wales from 1825 to 1837, and became the first speaker of the Legislative Council in 1843. He is best remembered today as a man of science, particularly through the Museum which bears his name at the University of Sydney where his vast natural history collection is housed. By 1825 Macleay 'had accumulated what was probably the finest collection of insects then in existence' (Oxford Dictionary of Biography). During his lifetime he was actively involved in the development of the Sydney Botanical Gardens and the Australian Museum. He built Elizabeth Bay House where he developed a garden renowned for its rare plants. Macleay died in Sydney in July of 1848.

        A General History of Birds

      Bohn, circa, London 1845 - 11 volumes (the eleventh the Index) bound in ten, quarto, with 193 handcoloured etched plates, some with 1838 watermarks; contemporary (probably original) half brown morocco, the spines slightly chipped. The deluxe edition, with plates "like highly finished drawings" One of the great illustrated bird books, with a remarkable number of species of Australian and Pacific interest. This is the deluxe "Bohn" edition of the set, famous for the series of handcoloured plates 'like highly finished drawings'; perhaps as few as twenty-five copies of this deluxe edition were issued. John Latham (1740-1837) was the pre-eminent ornithologist of his day and a close friend of the leading scientific figures including Sir Joseph Banks, Thomas Pennant and Sir Ashton Lever, with whom he swapped specimens and reports of the latest ornithological discoveries. 'Known as the Grandfather of Australian ornithology, he was the first to describe, and to name scientifically, a large number of Australian birds?' (Whittell, The Literature of Australian Birds). Latham was the right man at the right place and time to work on the newly-discovered Australian species, and was the first to describe more than one hundred new Australian birds, using specimens belonging to Banks and others. He was also largely responsible for the natural history specimens in Phillip's Voyage of 1789 (see catalogue no. XXXX). He first began publishing his General Synopsis of Birds in 1781, but he issued so many supplements over the following two decades that in 1821 he issued the whole work as The General History of Birds. This is the rare second issue of that second, expanded edition, done by the publisher Henry Bohn some time in the mid-1840s. The scale of the work is rather incredible, particularly when it becomes apparent that Latham includes almost 450 descriptions of birds from New Holland, with 22 of them beautifully illustrated. The work also includes, where possible, interesting field notes on how the birds where collected and in whose collection they were held, and, as a particularly interesting aside, an attempt has been made to record the Aboriginal names for many of the Australian birds. Generally Latham worked from specimens and field notes collected on the spot, with one notable exception: his plate for the "Variegated Bee-eater Merops ornatus" was taken from John Lewin's Birds of New South Wales (1813), the first illustrated book printed in Australia. Among the fine illustrations are depictions of the Banksian Cockatoo, the Red-crowned Parrot, the "New Holland Channel-Bill", two Honey-Eaters from around Sydney, and a particularly good image of the Cape Barren Goose with the note that "Mrs. Lewin informs me? that with management, it becomes very tame and familiar, so as to be domesticated with our Common Goose, and that the flesh is well flavoured." There are also illustrations of 16 birds from New Zealand, five from Hawaii, and another six from the Pacific. A full listing of the Australian and Pacific birds is available on request.

        The Present State and Prospects of the Port Phillip District of New South Wales

      William Curry, Dublin 1845 - Octavo, frontispiece and occasional vignettes; contemporary ownership inscription to the title-page, moderate foxing yet very good in original brown blind-blocked cloth (expertly rebacked retaining lettering portion of the original backstrip). The first edition, published in Dublin, of a scarce Port Phillip account in unusually attractive condition. A guide to Port Phillip and the rich grazing lands of 'Australia Felix' by Charles Griffith (1808-1863), an Irish pastoralist who later served on the Victorian Legislative Council. The aim of this book is an unbiased and informative account of the colony for future settlers, and in this respect the author is critical of the government with regard to the rights and tenures of the squatters. Griffith wrote most of his book in the bush 'to divert the solitude of an Australian hut' and apologises that some issues may have assumed undue importance due to his isolation. The book was finished for publication while visiting Dublin in 1844 and Griffith later returned to Australia to pursue a career in parliament. The Present State and Prospects of the Port Phillip District describes conditions both in the city of Melbourne and further afield, with sections on colonial society, crime, the squatting system and the strong desire for separation from New South Wales. Of the two chapters devoted to the life and customs of the Aborigines, the second addresses the issue of their rights as original occupiers of the land. The author maintains that settlement is the correct and justified course of action, but that the Aborigines are entitled to due care and protection by the state. Overall Griffith was a cautious yet insightful observer of the settlement during a time of significant change, indeed Ferguson describes this book as 'a simple and temperate statement of the squatting life and interests'. It forms a valuable contribution to the social and pastoral history of the Port Phillip district in the decade prior to independence. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Autograph letter to Robert Towns of Town's Wharf, Sydney

      31 July, Newcastle, N.S.W. 1845 - Three-page letter, folded to letter-size 255 x 205 mm., stamped at both Sydney and Newcastle; old folds and some browning, small loss from the seal being removed otherwise very good. An interesting intra-colonial letter from the Newcastle businessman William Dudding to the prominent Sydney trader Robert Towns. William Dudding was a civil servant working in the Hunter. In 1850 he was clerk at the Maitland Gaol, in 1854 he became the Clerk of Petty Sessions in Singleton, and was appointed as a Magistrate in Singleton in 1875. Not long after this letter was written, in November 1846, Dudding requested a public meeting to petition against the reintroduction of transportation. In the letter Dudding notes that he is owed £50 which is due a few days later on 4 August, and asks that £10 from the Savings Bank Sydney be paid to the credit of a Miss Caroline Sarah Freeman of Newcastle (the nature of the transaction is not clear), but Freeman remained in the Hunter, marrying one John Stewart by special licence in 1848. The letter also includes later dates which clarify the nature of the money owing to Dudding, which has apparently been sent by his father care of Robert Brooks. The letter is addressed to Robert Towns or one Mr. Manson care of the Town's Wharf in Sydney. Towns (1794-1873) was a well known merchant and entrepreneur, and founder of Townsville. He was authorized to represent Robert Brooks & Co. of London in the colony and by 1842 established a mercantile and shipping business in Sydney which extended to Europe, the Far East, Pacific Islands and India. In 1844 he bought "Jones Wharf" at Millers Point and for the next twenty years built up a reputation for supervising a range of diverse enterprises and sending explosive letters to his captains, agents and business associates all over the world. In 1833 he married W.C.Wentworth's half sister, Sophia, the two men fell out later in life over an inheritance issue.

Description of the American electro magnetic telegraph: Now in operation between the cities of Washington and Baltimore. 24pp. Woodcut text illustrations. Washington: J. & G. S. Gideon, 1845. 221 x 140 mm. Bound with 2 other works on the telegraph in 19th century boards, cloth backstrip, hand-lettered spine label and library label, corners worn. Light toning but very good. Library bookplate.</p><p>First Edition. Probably the first publication of the standardized Morse code, the first widely used data code. On May 24, 1844 Samuel F. B. Morse transmitted the first telegraph message ("What hath God wrought?") on an experimental telegraph line strung between Baltimore and Washington D.C., using the version of "Morse code" that became standard in the United States and Canada. The recipient of the message was Albert Vail, Morse&#39;s partner in developing the telegraph. Vail, who had worked with Morse since 1837, expanded Morse&#39;s original experimental numeric code (based on optical telegraph codes) to include letters and special characters so that it could be used more generally. Vail determined the frequency of use of letters in English by counting the moveable type he found in the typecases of a local newspaper. The code consisted of arrangements of shorter marks ("dots") and longer marks ("dashes"); the letters most commonly used were assigned shorter sequences of dots and dashes. Vail was thus responsible for inventing the most useful and efficient features of Morse code. Vail published the code in 1845 in the present pamphlet and in a 208-page book; the pamphlet most likely preceded the book. This copy of Vail&#39;s pamphlet is bound with two other later works on the telegraph: Moses Johnson&#39;s A Brief and Simple Explanation of the Electro-Magnetic Telegraph (Cincinnati, 1847); and Gardiner G. Hubbard&#39;s The Proposed Changes in the Telegraphic System (Boston, 1873). Origins of Cyberspace 208. </p>

        Narrative of the United States Exploring Expedition . During the years 1838, 1839, 1840, 1841, 1842?

      Philadelphia 1845 - Six volumes in five; imperial octavo, with a portrait, 64 plates and nine maps in the text volumes, and the complete atlas bound at the end of the fifth volume; numerous vignettes in the text; without the half-titles, occasional very light offsetting, but an unusually fine copy in a handsome contemporary binding of half black morocco with marbled boards, spines gilt in compartments, top edges gilt. The first generally avilable editon of the massive US Exploring Expedition. A superb set of the first generally available edition of the narrative of the first American naval exploring expedition. This is the desirable first octavo edition, of which only a thousand copies were printed, the first edition to be made generally available, preceded only by the quarto official and unofficial editions, printed in just 100 and 150 copies respectively. The official edition was published by Congress, but Wilkes retained the copyright, "to protect my reputation, being unwilling that a garbled edition should be printed by others". He was happy with the present edition, writing to a Congressional committee in January 1845 that "the imperial 8vo. has been got up in beautiful style, and stereotyped - the paper and execution fully equal, and, in some respects as a library and reading book, to be preferred to the 4to. edition?". Wilkes's six ships ranged from Tierra del Fuego, Chile and Peru, to Samoa, Fiji, Tahiti, Hawaii, Australia, New Zealand, the Philippines and Singapore. Two of its most notable achievements were the extensive survey of the American Northwest coast and the exploration of some 1500 miles of the Antarctic coast, "thereby proving the existence of the seventh continent. Equally important, the Expedition collected and described natural history specimens from all parts of the globe - specimens that eventually came to the fledgling Smithsonian Institution, making it the National Museum of the United States. In a wider sense, the Expedition led to the emergence of the United States as a naval and scientific power with worldwide interests?". (Magnificent Voyagers, p. 9). Later editions, including the second 1845 octavo edition, are smaller in size, do not include the fine steel-engravings found in the present edition, and are generally of inferior quality.

        Piccolo Atlante per gli elementi di Geografia Moderna ad uso delle scuole

      G. Marietti Tipografo-Librajo, Turin 1845 - Small oblong atlas, 150 x 215 mm., comprising 15 engraved maps; stitched in original printed wrappers, spine worn but overall a nice copy in original condition. Scarce Italian teaching atlas, with a world map and 14 other maps including a good chart of Oceania as the final plate. Interestingly, the Australian continent is identified as 'Nuova Olanda' (New Holland) on the double hemisphere world map, an unusual practice by the mid-nineteenth century. The map of Oceania identifies the continent as both Australia and 'Nuova Olanda', with the inclusion of archaic names for the coast of Western Australia derived from the Dutch discoveries of the seventeenth-century, namely 'Terra di Witt' and 'Terra di Nuyts'.

        Autograph letter to the future Victoria Cross winner (Admiral of the Fleet Sir) Edmund Commerell, 1845

      - Long letter of rebuke to the 16-year-old future Victoria Cross winner from a pained uncle and godfather - autograph letter signed to Edmund Commerell from Samuel Bosanquet ("Sam Bosanquet"): 4pp. 4to, Bath, 18 February 1845. Slightly nicked at folds. Samuel Bosanquet's sense of righteous exasperation with his nephew is sustained, admirable and, one suspects, futile. "Your Aunt & I were surprized," he writes, "not to say alarmed by ye mention in your note, almost a cursory one, that you had on ye previous day, communicated at ye Holy Eucharist": he should now "pray earnestly to God to bless what you have done . . . you have now taken upon your own soul, the solemn vow, made for you at your Baptism, that as you were then made one of God's elect Children by regeneration, so you will strive not to lose that intention, but to gain new strength in His service by presenting yourself at His other Holy Sacrament with a pure heart, & pure hands, with pure lips, and a pure body undefiled by pollution, because you know that the Christian's body is the temple of the [his uncle&#146;s writing swells in size] Holy Ghost". John Edmund Commerell (1829-1901) came from prosperous stock, but both his parents died early. His father, John Commerell (1795-1836), married in 1821 his first cousin Henrietta Sophia Bosanquet (1795-1841). Edmund, their second son, joined the Navy in 1832, at the age of 13. In 1845 he was serving on the Firebrand in China under Captain (later Admiral of the Fleet Sir) James Hope, taking part in November in a sensational engagement with the batteries at Obligado. "It must count as one of the anomalies of our service," recorded his Times obituary, "that this piece of work, more dangerous, more important than many for which decorations or promotions or even Victoria Crosses have been freely given, passed without any official recognition beyond the C.B. to Captain Hope, which, equally with the K.C.B. to Sir Charles Hotham, was given for the general, not the particular service." The Victoria Cross was not established until 1856; Commander Commerell was among its first recipients, being on the first list gazetted, on 24 February 1857. He and two of his seamen were honoured for a daring night operation from the Weser in the Sea of Azov, when, evading 20 or 30 Cossacks, he "destroyed large quantities of forage on the Crimean shore of the Sivash". His medal is now in the Lord Ashcroft Gallery at the Imperial War Museum. Promoted captain in 1859, rear-admiral in 1876, vice-admiral in 1881, admiral in 1886 and, at the request of Queen Victoria, whom he had served both as ADC and Groom-in-Waiting, Admiral of the Fleet in 1892, Commerell was Commander-in-Chief on the North American and West Indian station, 1882&#150;85, and Portsmouth, 1888&#150;91. Samuel Bosanquet (1797-1848), a younger brother of Sophia Commerell, proved her will in 1841 and was declared lawful "Curator or Guardian" of her younger children. He married in 1824 the aunt "who joins in every kind wish & prayer", Sophia Broadwood (1805-1892), daughter of James Shudi Broadwood (1772-1851), partner with his father in John Broadwood and Son(s), piano manufacturers.

        HILLINGDON HALL; OR, THE COCKNEY SQUIRE; A TALE OF COUNTRY LIFE. By The Author of "Handley Cross."

      London: Henry Colburn, 1845.. London: Henry Colburn, 1845.. Three volumes. Original forest green cloth, decorated in blind, spines lettered in gilt, edges untrimmed. Bindings faintly spotted and edgeworn, toe of first spine badly snagged (2 cm, with no loss), some marginal smudges and such as consistent with editorial use, else a good, bright set, in half morocco slipcase. Ownership signature of Rebecca Lightup in each volume. A proof copy of the first English edition, occasionally marked "Author&#39;s Proof," but in fact an in-house set of sheets, marked up by a proof-reader, with corrections to spelling, punctuation, pagination, imperfect leading and more, on about 75 pages. This, the third of Surtees&#39; popular sporting novels, features once again his most famous creation, the &#39;jolly, free-and-easy, fox-hunting grocer,&#39; Jorrocks, who buys a manor and runs for Parliament. The novel, a satire on the Anti-Corn League, had been serialised in 1844 in the NEW SPORTING MAGAZINE, a publication Surtees had helped found, and also appeared in a New York edition in that year. Proof copies of Victorian three-deckers survive only infrequently. In this set, some gatherings are marked "R" as read, two noting more specifically "Read Sept. 22 F.W." A further gathering bears the head-note "M.W. Author&#39;s proof. read back." The changes in this gathering are more substantial than elsewhere, altering for example "an order was despatched" to "a messenger was despatched" (vol. II, p. 116), and modifying the spellings of the name "Tompkins" (p. 105). Though the hand is that of a proof-reader, it is most likely that it reflects authorial corrections made to another proof set. SADLEIR 3163.

        The Raven; in The American Review: A Whig Journal of Politics, Literature, Art and Science

      New York: Wiley and Putnam. New York: Wiley and Putnam. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. FIRST EDITION, FIRST PRINTING, of one of the most celebrated poems in American literature. Published under the pseudonym "Quarles", "The Raven" brought Poe instant literary fame, quickly becoming one of the most discussed and recited poems in the country (although it did little to improve Poe&#39;s consistently dire financial situation). Note: The appearance in the American Review is the accepted first edition; the publication in the New York Mirror on January 29, 1845 was printed from advance sheets of the American Review.) The volume also includes Poe&#39;s story "Some Words with a Mummy" (pp. 363-370), and his poems "The Valley of Unrest" and "The City in the Sea" (pp. 392-3). The Raven, in The American Review: A Whig Journal of Politics, Literature, Art and Science. Vol 1, pp. 143-45. New York: Wiley and Putnam, 1845. Octavo, contemporary three-quarter morocco over marbled boards. The whole volume (Jan- June 1845; title page, index, 656 pages) offered. Occasional foxing and toning (as always); The Raven generally clean with only a few spots of foxing. Rubbing and general wear to contemporary binding. Rare, particularly in a contemporary binding.

        Nye Eventyr [New Fairy Tales]

      , 1845-1848. 1845-1848. first edition. The Original Stories That Catapulted Andersen to FameANDERSEN, Hans Christian. Nye Eventyr. Kjøbenhavn: C.A. Reitzel, 1845-1848. First edition, complete, two volumes (collections) bound together, of Anderson&#39;s second series of fairy tales, the first issue of Collection Two, the second issue of Collection One. Small octavo (6 1/4 x 4 in; 157 x 103 mm). Collection One: 47, [1, blank]; 68; 52 pp. Collection Two: 72; 60 pp. Two leaves, comprised of table of contents and dedication page to Collection Two, have been misbound out of sequence. Otherwise, complete with half titles for each volume, both shared title pages, both shared contents leaves, all dedication leaves, all half titles for each fairy tale, and all five regular title pages. Contemporary quarter calf over marbled boards. Marbled edges. Some light scattered foxing and toning, and an occasional inkspot. Otherwise a very nice copy. Housed in a quarter morocco clamshell case.A work of extreme scarcity with OCLC/KVK recording only a handful of copies in libraries worldwide, and with possibly only one other example, the Klein copy (1980), coming to auction within the last thirty-three years of ABPC records (Sotheby Hodgson&#39;s catalogue note vague and incomplete). These stories were originally issued in parts; very few have survived in that state. The publisher, Reitzel, collected the individual parts in their original printings, added tables of contents, and published them in anthologies as here.The importance of these stories, here - staggeringly - in their first edition, cannot be underestimated. They have become deeply embedded in the Western world&#39;s cultural consciousness, as timeless as our memories of childhood. More to the point, however, is that, unlike Charles Perrault and the Brothers Grimm, who were compilers and talented interpreters of traditional folk stories in their respective cultures, in this second series of Andersen tales, the stories are wholly original, the product of a brilliant imagination, featuring characters of great love and yearning who, misunderstood and misfits in a cruel world, have become transcendent heroes for humanity of all ages. The stories have become the cornerstones of Western children&#39;s literature, the characters eternal psychological archetypes."For his second collection, Nye Eventyr (New Fairy Tales), Andersen wrote some of his most important and famous stories. He moved away from traditional folk material towards creating tales that came from his imagination. The words &#145;told for children&#146; were omitted from the new title as Andersen sought to engage adults and children alike. He had found a genre in which he had a unique voice" (British Library Online Gallery).The Stories:Volume One1. The Angel2. The Nightingale3. The Sweethearts4. The Ugly Duckling5. The Fir Tree6.

      London: Henry Colburn, 1845. London: Henry Colburn, 1845.. Three volumes. Original forest green cloth, decorated in blind, spines lettered in gilt, edges untrimmed. Bindings faintly spotted and edgeworn, toe of first spine badly snagged (2 cm, with no loss), some marginal smudges and such as consistent with editorial use, else a good, bright set, in half morocco slipcase. Ownership signature of Rebecca Lightup in each volume. A proof copy of the first English edition, occasionally marked "Author's Proof," but in fact an in-house set of sheets, marked up by a proof-reader, with corrections to spelling, punctuation, pagination, imperfect leading and more, on about 75 pages. This, the third of Surtees' popular sporting novels, features once again his most famous creation, the 'jolly, free-and-easy, fox-hunting grocer,' Jorrocks, who buys a manor and runs for Parliament. The novel, a satire on the Anti-Corn League, had been serialised in 1844 in the NEW SPORTING MAGAZINE, a publication Surtees had helped found, and also appeared in a New York edition in that year. Proof copies of Victorian three-deckers survive only infrequently. In this set, some gatherings are marked "R" as read, two noting more specifically "Read Sept. 22 F.W." A further gathering bears the head-note "M.W. Author's proof. read back." The changes in this gathering are more substantial than elsewhere, altering for example "an order was despatched" to "a messenger was despatched" (vol. II, p. 116), and modifying the spellings of the name "Tompkins" (p. 105). Though the hand is that of a proof-reader, it is most likely that it reflects authorial corrections made to another proof set. SADLEIR 3163.

        THE ENGLISH STRUWWELPETER or Pretty Stories and Funny Pictures for Little Children. After the tenth edition of the celebrated German work.

      24 pages printed and hand-coloured on rectos only. Original printed paper-covered boards. Quarto. Second English edition. Lacking rear blank endpaper; original covers with loss of some of the printed paper surface and generally cracked and rubbed; spine repaired and some paper restoration to covers; juvenile scribble on page 20 ['O Dear.']; some spotting and soiling internally, but generally very good and, overall, an acceptable copy of a very early edition. Contained in a morocco-backed folding box. Originally published in Germany in 1845 as Lustige Geschichten und drollige Bilder, with only 15 pages, the book was expanded and renamed Struwwelpeter in 1847. Hoffmann instructed his publishers to issue the book in strong boards but with a frail paper spine, hoping that children would quickly read the book to pieces, and parents be forced to buy another copy; this accounts for the dearth of copies surviving in original boards. As with all genuine copies of early printings, the government's tax stamp appears on the upper board. The book was first published in English in 1848.
