        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).

        The genera of Diurnal Lepidoptera: comprising their generic characters, a notice of their habits and transformations, and a catalogue of the species of each genus.

      London, Longman, Brown, Green, and Longmans, 1846-1852. 2 volumes. Folio (375 x 270mm). pp. xi, (1), 1-250; (2), 251- 534, with 86 lithographed plates of which 85 splendidly handcoloured. Contemporary green half morocco, spines in 5 compartments with gilt lines and lettering (minor skilful repair to bindings). One of the rarest and most beautiful iconographies on butterflies. The magnificently handcoloured plates were drawn and lithographed by William C. Hewitson. Hewitson was a very wealthy naturalist and formed the most complete collection of diurnal lepidoptera of the world (now in the British Museum). "Hewitson was a most accomplished artist and scrupulously accurate draughtsman, and his figures, whether of birds' eggs or butterflies, are drawn and coloured with conscientious care ... In his own line, as a pictorial describer of butterflies, Hewitson stands unrivalled" (DNB. IX pp. 758-59). The work was published in 54 parts. The first 31 parts by Doubleday and due to his early death the work was continued by Westwood. The work is fully discussed by F. Hemming in the "Journal of the Soc. for Bibl. of Nat. Hist. Vol. I,11. pp. 335-464". 'The number of new species figured by Doubleday is very considerable, and is even larger than appears at first sight' (Hemming). The first plate, an anatomical plate, was never coloured. Foxing to title-pages and free endpaper./ /Provenance: Japanese monogram of Kikumaro Okano on title-pages.//Horn & Schenkling 5034: "Sehr selten"; Nissen ZBI, 1150.

Talboys and others in 1833 from: Ideen u?ber die Politik, den Verkehr und den Handel der vornehmsten Vo?lker der alten Welt. Heeren was a German historian, whose chief merit was that he looked at the ancient world from a fresh point of view. Instead of merely narrating their political events, he examined their economics, their constitutions and their financial systems, and thus was able to throw new light on the development of the Old World. He possessed vast and varied learning, perfect calmness and impartiality, and great power of historical insight, and is now looked back to as the pioneer in the movement for the economic interpretation of history.

        The Zoology of the Voyage of H.M.S. Erebus and Terror: The Birds of New Zealand.

      London: E.W. Janson, -. First edition. 1846 - Pp. 39 + 37 fine monochrome lithographic plates. Later gray cloth with the spine lettered in black, the original green printed wrappers are bound in at rear, sm folio (12.5 x 10 inches). The section by George R. Gray was first published in 3 parts about 1844/1845 and included 22 plates. The volume remained unfinished until 1875, when the work was edited by R. Bowdler Sharpe, who added an appendix and the remaining 15 plates. The 37 plates are numbered 1, 1*, 2 to 11, 11*, 13 to 20, 20*, 21, XXI*, 23 to 35 (collated complete as issued). The expedition of the H.M.S. Erebus and Terror to Antarctica took place in 1839-1843 under the Command of Capt. J.C. Ross - one of the expedition's principal discoveries was the Ross Ice Shelf. The various volumes documenting this significant expedition were edited by John Richardson and John Edward Gray. Any of the published results of this Antarctic exploratory voyage are quite scarce; this is especially true for the volume on the 'Birds of New Zealand' with exquisitely detailed lithographed plates. This work was issued with monochrome (uncolored plates); some copies were hand-colored at a later date. The last hand-colored copy I sold was priced at $4500. This copy is in the original uncolored state. The initials of a previous owner appear on the front green wrapper. The text, plates and cloth binding are bright and clean; a fine copy.

Pp. 39 + 37 fine monochrome lithographic plates.  Later gray cloth with the spine lettered in black, the original green printed wrappers are bound in at rear, sm folio (12.5 x 10 inches).  The section by George R. Gray was first published in 3 parts about 1844/1845 and included 22 plates.  The volume remained unfinished until 1875, when the work was edited by R. Bowdler Sharpe, who added an appendix and the remaining 15 plates.  The 37 plates are numbered 1, 1*, 2 to 11, 11*, 13 to 20, 20*, 21, XXI*, 23 to 35 (collated complete as issued).  The expedition of the H.M.S. Erebus and Terror to Antarctica took place in 1839-1843 under the Command of Capt. J.C. Ross - one of the expedition's principal discoveries was the Ross Ice Shelf.  The various volumes documenting this significant expedition were edited by John Richardson and John Edward Gray.  Any of the published results of this Antarctic exploratory voyage are quite scarce; this is especially true for the volume on the 'Birds of New Zealand' with exquisitely detailed lithographed plates.  This work was issued with monochrome (uncolored plates); some copies were hand-colored at a later date.  The last hand-colored copy I sold was priced at $4500.  This copy is in the original uncolored state.  The initials of a previous owner appear on the front green wrapper.

        Reminiscences of Australia with Hints of the Squatter's Life

      W. N. Wright, London 1846 - Duodecimo, frontispiece and folding plate; joints slightly rubbed yet a lovely copy in publisher's blind stamped cloth with gilt lettering. Uncommon account Leichhardt's first expedition. Christopher Hodgson accompanied Ludwig Leichhardt on his first expedition of 1844. Shortage of provisions for the long journey prompted Leichhardt to order Hodgson's premature return to Brisbane about four weeks after departure. Hodgson's diary of his time with Leichhardt is first published in this book. Indeed, some time after his return to Brisbane a rumour circulated that Leichhardt and his party had been massacred, prompting Hodgson to launch a relief part that departed in July of 1845. After seven weeks traversing hard country they found assurance that rumours of the massacre were indeed unfounded. This book includes a leaf announcing the successful arrival of Leichhardt's expedition in Port Essington and the sad death of Hodgson's 'old comrade' John Gilbert. The leaf states the sheets of the book had gone to press before this news was received. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        On the correlation of physical forces: Being the substance of a course of Lectures delivered in the London Institution in the year 1843

      Charles Skipper, London 1846 - FIRST EDITION, FIRST STATE of Grove's proposal of the conservation of energy: "the earliest general account of the principle." In 1842, "Sir W.R. Grove, English judge and man of science, known by his invention of a voltaic cell, explained in a lecture the idea of the interrelation of natural powers, an elaborated it in a book published in 1846 under the title of The Correlation of Physical Forces. This and the independent study in 1847 by the great German physiologist, physicist and matematician H.L.F. von Helmholtz, Ueber die Erhaltung der Kraft, contained the earliest general account of the principle now known as the 'conservation of energy'" (Dampier, A History of Science). "In this essay. Grove argued that all physical forces such as electricity, heat, light, magnetism, and so forth, should be regarded as being correlated, or mutually inter-related. Any one of these forces could be used to produce any of the others such that no particular force could be said to be the particular cause of another. Under particular circumstances any one of them might be the cause and any of the others the effect. In many ways, the essay was an argument against traditional notions of causality. Grove advanced a large number of experimental examples from the various branches of the physical sciences to substantiate his claims. He suggested that the main task of the natural philosopher was to demonstrate how this principle of correlation operated universally" (Oxford DNB). First state: Regarded as the offprint or "unpublished" state, with "by order of the managers of the London Institution, at the request of the proprietors" on title. Contained in a sammelband with a large collection of physics and engineering texts about electricity, electro-magnetism, and telegraphy (22 papers total) in various languages, with a very interesting booklet on the use of the first telegraphic cable between Europe and United-States. Grove's work is complete, with title, Preface, and 52 pages of text. London: Charles Skpper, 1846. Octavo, nineteenth-century half-red morocco over marbled boards. With cropped inscription (from Grove?) on title. A little scuffing to binding, otherwise fine. RARE. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Ouvrages specialement utile aux artistes, aux collectionneurs, aux marchands d'estampes, aux bibliophiles, etc

      Paris: Deflorenne Neveu, 1846. Bonnardot, Alfred (1808-84). Essai sur la restauration des anciennes estampes et des livres rares . . . [4], 80pp. [Paris:] Chez Deflorenne neveu . . . et chez Vign?res, 1846. With: Suppl?ment a l’Essai sur la restauration des vielles estampes, etc. . . . contenant des corrections, notes, ?claircissements, et addition d’un chapitre sur la relieure des livres rares [caption title]. 31pp. Paris: Imprimerie de Guiraudet et Jouaust, n.d. Together 2 works in 1. 206 x 131 mm. 20th century quarter morocco, paste paper boards. Fine. First Edition of the first book on the restoration of rare books and their bindings. Bonnardot was a Parisian bookbinder and restorer; his work also covered the cleaning and repair of prints and other works of art on paper, and was intended for artists, collectors, print dealers and bibliophiles. The fourteen chapters in the work cover such topics as bleaching, spot removal, repair of tears and holes, restoring the blackness of an impression, print conservation and the particular issues associated with works printed on parchment, satin and other unusual materials. The Essai was printed in a small edition of 400 copies and quickly went out of print. Some time afterwards Bonnardot issued a supplement to the Essai containing 15 pages of revisions to his original text and a fifteenth chapter on “The restoration and provisional binding of rare books”; this supplement is included here. In 1858 Bonnardot published a revised and greatly enlarged second edition of the Essai, portions of which were translated into English in Alfred Buck’s Book Repair and Restoration (1918). 1250
