        Typee: a Peep at Polynesian Life. During a Four Months' Residence in a Valley of the Marquesas; the Revised Edition, with a Sequel

      New York: Wiley and Putnam. 1846. Revised American edition, with the sequel, first printing, second state. Two parts in one. Small octavo. 308pp. Contemporary half straight grain morocco gilt and cloth, with the glazed pink paper label of "J.H. Oliphant, Book-binder. Oswego, N.Y." on the front pastedown. Contemporary penciled owner's name, lacks front fly, rubbing at the joints and extremities, but still a pleasing very good copy. Melville's first book, his dramatic account of his adventures in the South Seas was immediately popular, but he was accused of fictionalizing events (these accusations spurred, in part, by the book's disdain for missionaries). Melville's shipmate, Toby Greene, read one such critical review and was prompted to write his own short account verifying most of Melville's tale. Consequently, this edition deletes some passages critical of missionaries, but adds "The Story of Toby" vindicating the author of deceit. BAL 13654. .

Joseph Wolff (1795-1862), missionario britannico, viaggiò a lungo in Oriente a partire dal 1821 visitando l'Egitto, la Palestina, la Mesopotamia, la Persia, la Crimea e l'Impero Ottomano. Nel 1831 iniziò una nuova missione in Asia Minore, Armenia, Kurdistan, raggiungendo Bokhara e quindi l' India e il Kashmere; nel 1835 riparti' per il Sinai, lo Yemen, l'India e da Bombay si imbarcò per gli Stati Uniti.

        Etablissement Anglais at Port-Essington... Etablissement Anglais at Port-Essington

      Paris, 1846. Tinted lithograph, 260 x 390 mm, fine condition, mounted. The original lithograph from Dumont d'Urville's Voyage au Pole Sud... showing the English settlement at Port Essington.Dumont d'Urville's instruction from King Louis-Philippe was to explore the South Pole. Up to this time France had taken no part in Antarctic discovery which had been dominated by the English. Dumont d'Urville left Toulon on September 7, 1837 with two ships, the "Astrolabe" and the "Zelee", on a voyage that was to become dogged by mishap and illness. Goupil was one of two artists that accompanied D'Urville, and was unfortunately one of many to succumb to dysentery; he died in Hobart in 1840 at the age of 26.Port Essington was the site of the third abortive attempt to establish a settlement on the northern coast of Australia. It was originally surveyed in 1818 by Captain Phillip Parker King who named the sheltered inlet after his great friend Vice Admiral Sir William Essington. In 1838 Captain Bremer made his second attempt of a settlement at Port Essington having already been there in 1824 and had to move on due to a lack of water. This time a location on Barrow Bay was found to have an adequate water supply and a settlement and fortification was built called Fort Victoria. Dumont d'Urville visited this new settlement in 1840 and it was then that Goupil recorded the struggling settlement in this his only landscape on Australian soil.

        [ artifact, History of Computing ] Fuller's Time Telegraph and Palmer's Computing Scale

      Massachusetts: John E. Fuller, 1846. Boards. Very Good. 10 7/8 inches by 11 inches. 1/4 inches thick. Pressed paper construction with lithographed overlay, and edges with decorative thin leather borders with gilt decoration, the whole lacquered. Each "side" has a rotating volvelle with scales, and a recessed metal thumb on the disc which can be used for rotation. A metal rivet through the center holds the 2 discs in place. There is some minor loss to the gold stamped decorated black border finish, and one corner is bumped. There is an ink inscription 'Property of L. Derr' on the Fuller side. Both sides rotate as they should, but the Palmer side is curled outward from it's hole as if slightly too large. There is a fairly uniform darkening/soiling to both sides. Lacks the often missing cloth enclosure and printed instruction guide. Boards. Palmer's Computing Scale is one of the most desirable artifacts for those who collect early American Slide Rules and calculating devices. It was designed by Mr. Aaron Palmer and Mr. George G Smith in early 1841. A prototype was shown in early 1842, and later in Boston in the fall of 1843. Bobby Feazel notes that the Scale's first commercial appearance was in January 1844. This first circular rule had a front volvelle, and instructions printed on the rear. Feazel further notes Mr. John E. Fuller purchased the copyrights to the device from Palmer, and in 1845 copyrighted the Time Telegraph. This second device was affixed to the rear of Palmer's Computing Scale, and "how to" instructions were provided in a separate cloth case with foldout and instructions (not present here). There were various versions of this device produced from 1845 to 1871. Our example was published in 1845/46 (further differentiation of the date is impossible without the instruction book). This example has the Palmer slide rule showing a copyright of 1843, and the Fuller side copyright 1845. See Origins of Cyberspace #302 and Journal of the Oughtred Society Vol 3 No 1 and Vol 4 no 1 for more information.

David Roberts' magnificent images of Egypt and the Holy Land rank amongst the finest topographical views of the nineteenth century. Roberts made a two-year journey to the Middle-East commencing in 1838, and whilst there executed numerous watercolours from which the finest were selected for the publication; The lithographs were executed by Louis Haghe. In order to help fund the project, Roberts produced a deluxe subscription edition, from which this lithograph was taken, which is notable for being the only edition to have original hand-colour, which would have been executed under the direction of the artist.

        A History of British Fossil Mammals, and Birds. FIRST EDITION. Large 8vo.

      John van Voorst. 1846 Half title, folding table, woodcut illus., 4pp cata. (Dec. 1845) in smaller format. A bright clean copy. Uncut in orig. olive-green pebble-grained cloth; spine sl. faded with faint mark to lower edge. A near fine copy.Richard Owen, 1804-1892, was a renowned but controversial English Paleontologist who was compared favourably with the naturalists Georges Cuvier and Friedrich von Humboldt. In his role as Superintendent of the British Museum's Departments of Natural History, Owen was influential in campaigning for the establishment of a dedicated natural history museum, which was eventually opened in South Kensington in 1881. Fiercely ambitious and vicious in temperament, he was alienated from the scientific world, especially after his outspoken criticism of Charles Darwin's theory of evolution. This volume was part of a uniform series of works on zoology published by Van Voorst in a large and attractive 8vo format.

        South Australia and its Mines with an Historical Sketch of the Colony under its Several Administrations, to the Period of Captain Grey's Departure

      T. & W. Boone, London 1846 - Octavo, frontispiece and five plates (including map of the Rivoli Bay district bound into the text); with a large handcoloured folding map measuring 684 x 535 mm. in front sleeve; some foxing of the plates (typical of this paper stock) and a little preliminary toning, yet a handsome copy with the advertisements in original publishers gilt decorated brown cloth. Inscribed to Captain FitzRoy of the Beagle. Inscribed by the author to Captain Robert FitzRoy, commander of the Beagle and companion of Charles Darwin, who later served as governor of New Zealand. This well preserved copy is an example of the scarcer issue with a loose folding Arrowsmith map in the front sleeve.Following his controversial support of Maori land claims, FitzRoy was dismissed as governor of New Zealand in April of 1845 and returned to England later that year. Having discovered copper at Kapunda in South Australia in 1842, Francis Dutton returned to England in 1845 seeking capable men to work the deposit. Here he wrote South Australia and its Mines and had it published by Boone early the following year. It appears likely that the two men became acquainted during 1846, at which time Dutton presented this copy to FitzRoy. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        THE CRICKET ON THE HEARTH

      1846. A Fairy Tale of Home. New-York: Harper & Brothers, 1846. 16 pp undated terminal ads. Original brown wrappers lettered in black. First American Edition (?) of Dickens's third Christmas Book. Wrappered editions were produced by several New York and Boston publishers, but this Harper one is the one generally considered first; Carr asserts that Harper's and Wiley & Putnam's were "simultaneous."~This copy has sixteen pages of ads headed "Valuable Books of Travel"; there is another state of ads, priority between the two undetermined. This is a remarkably near-fine copy of this delicate volume (minor wear at the extremities). Even on this side of the Atlantic, we see probably fifty copies of the English edition for each copy of the American. Podeschi (Yale) A93; Carr (UTexas) B403(1).
