        Now Exhibiting at the Hall. The Skeleton of this Gigantic Animal was Discovered in the Month of August last on the Farm of Mr. Nathaniel Brewster, in the Town of Newburgh, Orange Co. N.Y

      [United States], 1846. No Binding. Near Fine. [64.5cm x 44.3cm; 25.5" x 17.5"]. Large broadside. Minor offset toning. A well-preserved example. Rare, boldly printed broadside announcing the early exhibition of one of the most famous discoveries in the history of American paleontology, that of the 'Warren Mastodon,' excavated in 1845 from a peat bog near Newburgh, New York, and since 1906 on display at the Museum of Natural History. The animal, which perished some 11,000 years ago, was an immediate sensation owing to its bones' near complete state of preservation and its status as the largest extinct species yet discovered in America (the first American dinosaur, a Hadrosaurus, was identified in Haddonfield, New Jersey, in 1858). Found on the farm of Nathaniel Brewster, the mastodon skeleton toured New England until it came to the attention of the surgeon Dr. John Collins Warren, who quickly purchased the beast, wrote a monograph about it (The Mastodon Giganteus of North America, Boston, John Wilson, 1852) and housed it in a small Boston Museum where it remained until it entered the Museum of Natural History. Today "the discovery of the mastodon skeleton, and Warren's serious treatment of it, mark the beginning of vertebrate paleontology in this country" (Expedition [AMNH gallery guide], p. 46). The broadside's exaggerated language and eye-catching typography are typical of printed advertising for mid-nineteenth-century spectacles. That it describes the exhibition generically as taking place "at the Hall" and that no firm admission price was printed suggest that the poster was designed for a traveling show of the sort where Dr. Warren first encountered the specimen. OCLC locates copies at the Library of Congress, Indiana University, the American Philosophical Society, and the American Antiquarian Society.

        An Explanation of the observed Irregularities in the Motion of Uranus, on the Hypothesis of Disturbances caused by a more distant Planet; with a determination of the Mass, orbit and position of the disturbing body. (From the Appendix to the Nautical Almanac for the Year 1851.).

      London, W. Clowes and Sons, 1846. 8vo. (22,3X14,3 cm.) Contemp. clothbacked boards, marbled covers. 2 stamps on margin of title-page and one to verso of title-page. 31, (1) pp. Some heavy browning to titlepage and verso of last leaf, but apart from that a nice and fine copy.. Extremely scarce first edition, separate issue, of the work that announced the discovery of Neptune and finally confirmed Newton's theory of gravitation."In retrospect Adams' many mathematical and astronomical achievements pale in comparison to his analysis of the orbit Uranus and his prediction of the existence and position of Neptune at the age of twenty-four. Much of his later work has been superseded, but as the co-discoverer of Neptune he occupies a special, undiminished place in the history of science." (D.S.B.). The somewhat misleading information on the title-page in relation to the publishing year (1846 a. 1851) is shared with the (only) 3 other copies that have been for sale during the last 50 years, The Honeyman-copy, 1978 (which is now in the Barchas Collection), The Dunham copy, 1993, and the Norman copy, 1998. John Couch Adams (1819-92) was a British astronomer. He was born in the small Cornish town of Launceston, where his father was a tenant farmer. He developed an early interest in astronomy, constructing his own sundial and observing solar altitudes, and pursuing his astronomical studies in the local Mechanics Institute. He graduated brilliantly from Cambridge University in 1843, and became Lowndean Professor of Astronomy and Geometry there in 1858; in 1860 he was appointed director of the Cambridge Observatory. - Adams developed new methods of dealing with lunar theory, and he made the first serious attempt to deduce from the irregularities in the motion of Uranus, which he observed, the position of Neptune.His fame rests largely upon the dramatic events surrounding the discovery of the planet Neptune in 1846. Astronomers had detected a discrepancy between the observed and predicted positions of Uranus and thus it appeared that either Newton's theory of gravitation was not as universal as had been supposed, or there was an as yet undetected body exerting a significant gravitational influence over the orbit of Uranus. There is evidence that Adams had decided to work on this problem as early as 1841. He had a general solution to the problem by 1843 and a complete solution by September, 1845. It was then that he paid a visit to George Airy, the Astronomer Royal, with the exact position of the new planet.Airy paid little attention to it and was moved to action only when, in June 1846, the French astronomer, Urbain Leverrier, also announced the position of a new planet. It was within one degree of the position predicted by Adams the previous year. Airy asked James Challis, director of the Cambridge Observatory, to start looking for the new planet with his large 25-inch (63.5-cm) refractor. Unfortunately Challis decided to cover a much wider area of the sky than was necessary and also lacked up-to-date and complete charts of the area. His start was soon lost and Johann Galle in Berlin had no difficulty in discovering the planet on his first night of observation. All the fame, prizes, and honors initially went to Leverrier.Parkinson 323; D.S.B.

        Notes of an Exile to Van Dieman's Land: comprising incidents of the Canadian Rebellion in 1838, trial of the author in Canada, and subsequent appearance before Her Majesty's Court of Queen's Bench, in London, imprisonment in England, and Transportation to Van Dieman's Land

      Fredonia: New York, 1846. Octavo; light spotting throughout, but a very good copy in twentieth-century quarter green morocco, raised bands, spine unevenly sunned. First edition and scarce: 'A most vivid and interesting account of the convict system in Tasmania from within by a political prisoner, who publishes testimonials to his upright character and reliability from Tasmanian public men' (Ferguson).Miller was transported to Van Diemen's Land after the 1837 "Patriotic Movement" of Canadian rebels, which was quickly and easily defeated. Miller, like many of the rebels, was actually a citizen of the United States, a fact that did him few favours in Australia. Of the central figures in the uprising 29 were executed, 8 deported to Bermuda and no less than 149 to Australia. Initially removed to the Hulks on the Thames, Miller was among the second group transported to Van Diemens Land, arriving in Hobart on the Canton in January 1840. Unlike the French-Canadians who ended up in the stockade near Concord in the west of Sydney, the rebels who were transported to Van Diemens Land were more harshly treated. Miller was finally pardoned and sailed from Hobart in September 1846.No fewer than nine individual accounts of the Canadian exiles were published, and Miller's is one of the scarcest.

      Paris: Gruel, 1846 Livre de mariage d'apres les manuscrits de la Bibliothèque royale. Paris: Gruel, '1846' [colophon 1849]. 8° (153 x 110mm). Chromolithographic title and 91 chromolithographic facsimile leaves incorporating one full-page frontispiece, one full-page part-title and 14 full-page illustrations by H. Moulin after Auguste Louis Charles Ledoux, printed in gold and colours throughout by Engelmann and Graf, mounted on guards. EXTRA-ILLUSTRATED with 5 additional leaves with chromolithographic borders enclosing a calligraphic manuscript of the wedding-service of Ferdinando, 1st Duke of Genoa, (1822-1855) and Elizabeth, Princess of Saxony, (1830-1912), in 1850; the borders with additional painted decoration incorporating their arms and monogram initials, and 6 hand-painted and gilt engraved plates ofSaints Ferdinand, Elizabeth, John the Evangelist, Theresa, Amelia, andthe Blessed Virgin Mary, with letterpress titles printed in gold beneath, one by André Féart, another by L. Butavand after A. Fries. Original green velvet [?by Gruel], upper board with applied silver gilt and enamel arms of Savoia and Saxony, silver gilt cornerpieces, and bosses, velvet foreedge straps with silver gilt fittings, silver gilt spine-ends, gilt edges, yellow fabric endleaves, 6 joined silk markers with white silk and silver thread tassles (short splits on upper joint, short tear on one strap); silklined green roan box with gilt crest on cover. Provenance: Prince Ferdinando, Duke of Genoa and Princess Elizabeth of Saxony, inserted flyleaf with illuminated strapwork cartouche in a French renaissance style with the arms of Savoy and Saxony in gold and colours, binding. A FINELY-BOUND FACSIMILE LIVRE DE MARIAGE DECORATED AND EXTRA-ILLUSTRATED TO COMMEMORATETHE ROYAL WEDDING OF PRINCE FERDINAND OF SAVOY AND PRINCESS ELIZABETH OF SAXONY. The basis of the volume is a chromolithographic livre de mariage printed for the binder and publisher Gruel by the company of Engelmann and Graf. Godefroy Engelmann I (1788-1839) had developed a pioneering, fully-automated process for colour lithography in 1836 and founded the company Société Engelmann, Père et Fils with his son Godefroy II (1814-1897) in 1837, which became Engelmann et Graf in 1842, and quickly established itself as the leading company in France for the printing of facsimiles of illuminated manuscripts. The binder Pierre Paul Gruel died in c. 1848, and his business was continued by his widow -- who married Godefroy Engelmann II in 1851 -- and his son Léon (1841-1923). The Livres de mariage produced by Engelmann et Graf were available in a variety of forms, and this example, based on manuscripts in the Bibliothèque royale (including the Grandes Heures of Anne of Brittany and Les très riches heures of Jean de France, duc de Berry), wasprepared in a particularly luxurious form for the marriage of Prince Ferdinand, Duke of Genoa and Princess Elizabeth of Saxony on 22 April 1850. Five leaves bearing the calligraphic text of Ferdinand and Elizabeth's wedding service, decorated by hand with their arms and monogram and illuminated with painted initials and infills, have been inserted before the chromolithographic text, and heavily painted and gilt engravings of five Saints, including Ferdinand and Elizabeth, have been added, as has a preliminary painted armorial before the printed title. The binding is unsigned, but was probably executed by Gruel, and is richly ornamented with metal furnishings and an enamelled plaque bearing the arms of Savoy and Saxony. Lot Notes: Prince Ferdinando, Duke of Genoa, (1822-1855) married at The Nymphenburg Palace, Dresden, Elisabeth of Saxony, (1830-1912) thedaughter of Johann I, King of Saxony in 1850. The younger son of Carlo Alberto, King of Sardinia, (1798-1849) and brother of Vittorio Emanuele II, King of Italy, (1820-1878) he was created Duke of Genoa in 1831 and was an Admiral in the Sardinian navy. His daughter, Margherita, (1851-1926) married her first cousin Umberto I, King of Italy

        Autograph Letter Signed to George Burns Esq., in Lincolns Inn Fields, London

      22 April, Tooloom, Moreton Bay 1846 - Single sheet of wove paper, 225 x 365 mm., folded to letter size, written in a neat and legible hand, dated "Tarcoom Moreton Bay 22 April 1844 (sic.)"; old folds, in excellent condition with postal stamps for Brisbane and Sydney. "Some rejoicing at the safe return of Dr Leidkart?" A fascinating letter from the Moreton Bay colony in 1846, with early news of the safe arrival of Leichhardt in Sydney after his arduous trek to Port Essington, and a challenging account of life in the region: 'this is a rough and hard life and fitted only for a young man to undertake.'The letter is most interesting for Bean's comments on the safe return of Leichhardt, worth quoting at length as the opinion of a Moreton Bay local on the German explorer's unlikely return; Leichhardt, of course, had set out from the area in late 1844. Bean writes: 'The Colony has been lately under much excitement and some rejoicing at the safe return of Dr Leidkart (sic.) from Port Essington to Sydney. He is a German geologist and started from Moreton Bay nearly two years ago to make that Port overland. His party consisted of only seven persons and a few months after his departure Blacks came in the furthest out-station and reported that the whole party had been killed. A party was fitted out to ascertain the truth of this report but returned without any thing satisfactory and from the length of the Doctor's absence all hopes of his return were given up, when to the surprize of all the good people in Sydney the enterprising Doctor and all his party excepting one who was killed by the Blacks, landed in the Port. I always considered the enterprise as a very rash adventure but since it has succeeded so well I must say it is the most plucky undertaking I have heard of in the Colony. The accounts of the Country he travelled are far more favourable than was generally expected.'The author of this letter, Henry Haffey Bean, younger brother of Willoughy Bean, who had been a resident of Brisbane Waters in the 1820s and 1830s. Henry (1809-1890) is a shadowy figure, but seems to have lived in Australia for several years despite being born and ultimately dying in England. The present letter is written from Tooloom in Moreton Bay and addressed to a friend in London. Bean evidently had a difficult time in Australia, and writes that his 'circumstances are far from being so good as they were some four or five years ago.' He writes of having only a few stock, but is optimistic about his chances of returning home to England in the next few months with some money in his pocket. He discusses the need for Government-supported emigration to the region, and the cost of livestock (sheep 5/- per head, cattle 15/-). The property Tooloom was sold in 1846 by auction in Sydney, where it was listed as being 125 miles from the "Clarence settlement" and 85 miles from "Limestown, Moreton Bay".Bean has dated the letter "1844" but in error, as Leichhardt did not return to Sydney until 17 December 1845: the postal stamps, however, are clearly dated "1846", and this is doubtless the real date of composition.

        Autograph Letter Signed to George Burns Esq., in Lincolns Inn Fields, London

      Tooloom, Moreton Bay: 22 April, 1846. Single sheet of wove paper, 225 x 365 mm., folded to letter size, written in a neat and legible hand, dated "Tarcoom Moreton Bay 22 April 1844 (sic.)"; old folds, in excellent condition with postal stamps for Brisbane and Sydney. "Some rejoicing at the safe return of Dr Leidkart..." A fascinating letter from the Moreton Bay colony in 1846, with early news of the safe arrival of Leichhardt in Sydney after his arduous trek to Port Essington, and a challenging account of life in the region: 'this is a rough and hard life and fitted only for a young man to undertake.'The letter is most interesting for Bean's comments on the safe return of Leichhardt, worth quoting at length as the opinion of a Moreton Bay local on the German explorer's unlikely return; Leichhardt, of course, had set out from the area in late 1844. Bean writes: 'The Colony has been lately under much excitement and some rejoicing at the safe return of Dr Leidkart (sic.) from Port Essington to Sydney. He is a German geologist and started from Moreton Bay nearly two years ago to make that Port overland. His party consisted of only seven persons and a few months after his departure Blacks came in the furthest out-station and reported that the whole party had been killed. A party was fitted out to ascertain the truth of this report but returned without any thing satisfactory and from the length of the Doctor's absence all hopes of his return were given up, when to the surprize of all the good people in Sydney the enterprising Doctor and all his party excepting one who was killed by the Blacks, landed in the Port. I always considered the enterprise as a very rash adventure but since it has succeeded so well I must say it is the most plucky undertaking I have heard of in the Colony. The accounts of the Country he travelled are far more favourable than was generally expected.'The author of this letter, Henry Haffey Bean, younger brother of Willoughy Bean, who had been a resident of Brisbane Waters in the 1820s and 1830s. Henry (1809-1890) is a shadowy figure, but seems to have lived in Australia for several years despite being born and ultimately dying in England. The present letter is written from Tooloom in Moreton Bay and addressed to a friend in London. Bean evidently had a difficult time in Australia, and writes that his 'circumstances are far from being so good as they were some four or five years ago.' He writes of having only a few stock, but is optimistic about his chances of returning home to England in the next few months with some money in his pocket. He discusses the need for Government-supported emigration to the region, and the cost of livestock (sheep 5/- per head, cattle 15/-). The property Tooloom was sold in 1846 by auction in Sydney, where it was listed as being 125 miles from the "Clarence settlement" and 85 miles from "Limestown, Moreton Bay".Bean has dated the letter "1844" but in error, as Leichhardt did not return to Sydney until 17 December 1845: the postal stamps, however, are clearly dated "1846", and this is doubtless the real date of composition.

        Ship Cataraque [i.e. Cataraqui] : Copies of all Reports and Correspondence Respecting the Loss of the Emigrant Ship "Cataraque" in Bass's Straits, in August Last, Having 369 Emigrants on Board (Parliamentary Paper, 170/146)

      Ordered, by the House of Commons to be printed, [London] 1846 - [21]p. Uncut and stab sewn as issued. "Ordered by the House of Commons to be printed, 27 March 1846." Not recorded by Ferguson and rare. An extremely important document concerning one of the worst shipwrecks and civil disasters in Australia's maritime history. The "Cataraqui" was an 802 ton Canadian wooden barque built in Quebec by W. Lampson in 1840 and registered in Liverpool to William Smith & Sons. Originally a cargo vessel, the ship was refitted in 1845 to take advantage of emigrant trade. When it set out from Liverpool to Melbourne Australia on April 20th 1845 there were 367 assisted emigrants cared for by two surgeons Edward and Charles Carpenter and 41 crew captained by Christopher Finlay. Apart from the loss of a crew member overboard, the death of five babies and birth of five, the passage was uneventful until nearing Bass Straight. On August 4th the barque struck ragged rocks about 150 yards north of Fitzmaurice Bay, King Island and about 120 miles south of Port Phillip. Approximately half the passengers were lost immediately leaving about 200 survivors but by the morning of August 5th only 30 survivors remained. By the 6th only nine survivors remained. A handful managed to swim to King Island successfully ¿ one emigrant (Solomon Brown) and eight crew consisting of the first mate, Mr Guthery, (also appears in the document as "Guthrie") six seaman and one apprentice.They were found by a policeman, David Howie, who himself had been the victim of a shipwreck and stranded on the Island. The 342 bodies washed ashore were buried by the survivors in mass graves. The ten castaways were eventually rescued some five weeks later by the cutter Midge and taken to Melbourne. Press reports of the disaster made their way to England and great concern was expressed to understand the cause of the Cataraqui being so tragically off course. The matter resulted in the House of Commons requiring the tabling of all reports and correspondence concerning this ship¿s loss. This parliamentary paper resulted in March 1846 and is the only official publication and most important record of this shipwreck. Correspondence appearing in this Paper includes references to the worthiness of the ship by Lieutenant Henry, the Government Emigration Agent at Liverpool, statements confirming the competency and fitness of the Captain and chief mate, and copies of letters and a report from then Superintendent Charles Joseph La Trobe.The document importantly includes an alphabetical list of emigrants with their age, occupation and their native Parish and a nominal list of the drowned officers and crew. The narrative of Guthery which was printed in the Port Phillip Herald and, reports in other newspapers and other letters and reports all contribute to making this a fascinating and important document in Australia's maritime history. Tragically, within a few months of their rescue, Guthery was drowned off South Australia, Solomon Brown was thrown from a horse and drowned in a few inches of water while David Howie was lost at sea and presumed drowned.

        [THREE LETTERS WRITTEN BY MEXICAN-AMERICAN SOLDIERS TO DAVID HOFINS OF BEDFORD, PENNSYLVANIA]

      [Various locations]. 1846-1847.. Two quarto bifolium sheets and one folio bifolium. Typical mailing folds, some soiling and staining. Overall very good. A small collection of three letters written from soldiers in the Mexican-American War to David Hofins of Bedford, Pennsylvania. Details of each letter are as follows: 1) John P. Langdon of "Co. B. 4th Arty. USA,?" Autograph Letter, Signed, 4pp., Monclova, Mexico, Nov. 8, 1846. Langdon reports that his regiment is 200 miles north of Gen. Zachary Taylor's force at Monterey and eighty miles west of the Rio Grande. He also includes rumors of the possible taking of Chihuahua with no loss of men. 2) Ben Frank Mann, Autograph Letter, Signed, [3]pp., Island of Lobos, Mexico, Feb. 23, 1847. Mann writes about the American plans to land General Winfield Scott's army near Vera Cruz to begin the city's siege, which began later on March 9 and lasted until March 29. Postmarked from New Orleans, the letter reads in part: "As the Government intends to use it [Lobos] as a depot during the war on account of the excellent anchorage which it affords, the safest I believe on the Gulf…the two regts. from Penn, the South Carolina Regt, the Regts from Louisiana, Mississippi and New York are here, on the Island, there are a number of Regulars on the vessels in the harbor…there are upwards of thirty vessels in the Harbor. Gen Scott arrived here yesterday, and we are to embark during this week, on Friday it is supposed at the latest. Our destination is Green Island six miles below Vera Cruz where we will be landed and weather permitting…As soon as it [Vera Cruz] is captured we will be placed on the route to the Capitol." 3) Lt. E.C. Marin, Autograph Letter, Signed, [2]pp., St. Charles Hotel, New Orleans, Apr. 29, 1847. Marin, much taken with the pleasures of life in New Orleans, writes Hofins about the city and traveling via steamboat down the Mississippi River: "The comforts and luxuries of traveling on the Mississippi must surpass every other mode of traveling in the world…have plenty of company both male and female, music and dancing, flirtation and so forth…New Orleans, the Paris of America with the melting eyes of its 'brunettes' and the soft delicacy of its 'blondes' with all their fiery passions, for enjoyment, are enough to make man, like Adam of old, pluck from the forbidden tree." An interesting trio of letters home written to the same recipient by three different participants in, or on their way to, the Mexican-American War, with good content in Mexico and New Orleans.

      New York and London: Wiley and Putnam, and John Murray, 1846. 2 vols., sm. 8vo, xv, 166, (1, ads); (4), 167-325, (2, ads). With a frontispiece map to part one.

See BAL 136563 (p. 156 col. 2, ?paper wrapper? issue) which conforms exactly with this copy. Even though John Wiley had hastily censored some of the more sexual passages of Melville?s manuscript, the American edition was heavily criticized by the Presbyterian New York Evangelist for its portrayal of Protestant missionaries in the Pacific and Melville was compelled by Wiley to edit the text heavily for a new ?Revised Edition?. The various scandals boosted sales of the book and effectively launched Melville?s literary career.

        Brustbild einer sitzenden Frau mit hochgestecktem Haar nach links.

      - Bleistift, auf bräunlichem Velin, rechts unten signiert, bezeichnet und datiert „E. Crola Ilsenburg 1846.". 17,3:7,7 cm, auf Untersatz montiert. Mit Lichtrand rundum. Elise Crola, Tochter eines Bankiers, wuchs in einem künstlerisch-musisch orientierten Elternhaus auf. Hier verkehrten neben Wissenschaftlern auch Maler und Bildhauer wie W. von Schadow (1788-1862), Chr.D. Rauch (1777-1857), C.J. Begas (1794-1854), C.W. Wach (1787-1845) und ihr Vetter E.J.F. Bendemann (1811-1889), der spätere Direktor der Dresdner Gemäldegalerie. Ihre Eltern förderten die künstlerische Begabung ihrer Tochter – auch Schadow, der sie in jungen Jahre porträtiert hatte („Die Poesie"), empfahl ihren Eltern, das Talent ihrer Tochter zu fördern. So erhielt sie früh Zeichenunterricht durch den Porträt- und Miniaturmaler J.F. Zimmermann (tätig 1796-1838). Im Alter von 18 Jahren heiratete sie den vierzehn Jahre älteren Baron K.H.L. von Weiher; die kinderlose Ehe wurde 1836 auf Drängen ihrer Familie und gegen ihren Willen geschieden. Kurz darauf lernte sie in Berlin den Maler Georg Heinrich Crola (1804-1879) kennen, sie trafen sich wieder in Ilsenburg, wo sie sich bevorzugt aufhielt, und heirateten 1840. Gemeinsam entschied man, in Ilsenburg sesshaft zu werden und erwarb schließlich 1847 ein großes Haus. Obwohl sie fünf Kinder gebar, unternahm sie gemeinsam mit ihrem Mann nicht nur zahlreiche Fahrten nach Berlin, Dresden und auf die Insel Rügen, sondern auch nach Dänemark, Schweden und in die Alpen. Zudem führten sie in Ilsenburg ein reges gesellschaftliches Leben. Zu ihren Künstlerfreunden zählten u.a. P. von Cornelius (1783-1867), L. Richter (1803-1884) und W. von Kügelgen (1802-1867). Elise zeigte zudem ein ausgeprägtes soziales Engagement und wurde zur Wohltäterin der Alten und Armen. Nicht näher zu spezifizierende Beschwerden zwangen sie jedoch zu Reisen, z.B. eine vermutlich anderthalbjährigere Reise gemeinsam mit ihrem Mann 1854 in die Schweiz. Auch zwei längere Aufenthalte in Italien zwecks Erholung sind zu belegen. Ihr künstlerisches Schaffen, sie arbeitete meist mit dem Bleistift, selten in Aquarell, wird von figürlichen Themen, Porträts, Tierdarstellungen, Veduten und Landschaften bestimmt.

      - Aquarell, mit schwarzer Tuschlinie umrandet, auf Velin. 10,8:17,6 cm. Bekannt war Lear als Schriftsteller, insbesondere von Limericks, eine literarische Form, die durch ihn Verbreitung fand. Zunächst arbeitete er als Illustrator, 1846 veröffentlichte er „Book of Nonsense", eine Sammlung von Limericks, was ihm großen Erfolg einbrachte. Weitere Veröffentlichungen folgten, die bekannteste war das Kinderbuch „The Owl an the Pussycat". Trotz einer schon seit Kindheit an bestehenden Krankheit – Epilepsie – und schlechten Gesundheit ging er 1838 nach Rom, wo er mit Unterbrechungen 8 Jahre leben sollte. Weitere Reisen folgten auf den Balkan, in die Schweiz, mehrere Reisen nach Griechenland und 1872/1874 nach Indien. Darüber hinaus gab er Zeichenunterricht, seine wohl prominenteste Schülerin war Königin Victoria. Lear reiste wiederholt nach Griechenland. 1847 ist der erste Aufenthalt auf Korfu zu belegen, weitere Reisen nach Griechenland erfolgten 1855-1857, 1863 und 1864.
