        Account book. Rev'd I. Mickleburgh. 1846. 1847. 1848.

      Upper cover so lettered but actually January 1 - January 21 1849 1846 - Ms. volume, small 4to., approximately 335 closely written up pages (i.e. excluding blanks), in ink on ruled paper, original vellum boards, wanting the clasp, the binding a bit shaken but still in very good condition. Far, far more than an 'account book' in the usual sense but actually a detailed journal of the daily life of John Mickleburgh, a Church of England country parson living and working in the rural parishes of Wrotham and St. Mary Platt about half way between Sevenoaks and Maidstone in Kent. The journal makes absorbing reading, covering the whole period from 1st January 1846 to 21st January 1849, a complete block of some 159 weeks. John and his wife Fanny were probably then in their thirties and, by August 1848, had 6 children, born variously between 1835 and 1848. Appointed the first vicar of the new parish of St. Mary, Platt, John Mickleburgh was an enthusiastic priest and was particularly involved with his parish Sunday schools. The diary is full of descriptions of his work for the children, the appointment and support of the school mistress, Sarah Roots, and the building of a new school (he already had a new church built in 1843). The designs of the new school (Platt National School), the work with the architect, raising funds, the appointment of a new school master (Sarah Roots had gone), the management committee, curriculum and so forth, are all recorded in some detail. The school was opened on 30 November 1846 with 50 children on the roll. The diaries also faithfully record the mundane minutiae of parish life (and death), the weekly round of services, and the highs and lows of village life in all aspects of which the parson and his family were central players. The narrative part of the journal is in each case faced by detailed financial records of family and official expenses. This diary is a remarkable document, bringing to life as it does the stresses and strains, as well as the joys and the minor successes, of a conscientious country parson in early Victorian Kent. John Mickleburgh, admitted pensioner at St. Catherine's College, Cambridge, on July 4, 1836, was the son of James Mickleburgh Esq. of Thanet House, Margate, Kent. B.A. 1840: ordained deacon (Winchester, for Exeter), 1840; priest (Exeter) 1841. Curate of Tregony, Cornwall, 1841-4; vicar of Platt, Kent, 1845-9. Died June 12, 1849, less than five months after the last entry in his journal. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Four early watercolour portraits of Australian Aborigines after lithographs by George French Angas and Henry Hainsselin.

      [Australia? : c.1846]. Four individual watercolour head-and-shoulder portraits, each approximately 110 x 90 mm, on sheet 400 x 325 mm, paper watermarked J. Whatman Turkey Mill 1846; the artist's captions in pencil beneath each portrait read (anti-clockwise from top right): Kertamaroo / King John; Mocata (his wife); Native of Gipps Land, Victoria; Yonki Yonka, Native of Western Port tribe; unmounted; in fine condition. Although unsigned, this quartet of portraits of indigenous Australian subjects was made by a reasonably accomplished artist, in all likelihood within a few short years of the first publication of the images as lithographs. The top pair of portraits, depicting the South Australian Aborigines Kertamaroo (King John) and Mocata, are after a lithograph by George French Angas. Angas' lithograph was first published in 1840 as the frontispiece to the Fourth Report of the Directors of the South Australian Company (Ferguson, 3086). The lithograph appeared again in 1843 as one of the plates in South Australia in 1842. By one who lived there nearly four years (Ferguson, 3721), with the notice that the portraits had originally been "Model'd from life by Mrs Walker." The two bottom portraits depict Victorian Aborigines from the west Gippsland district. Both are after lithographic plates by Henry Hainsselin (which in turn were created from sketches made "on the spot" by G.H. Haydon), published in 1846 in Haydon's Five years' experience in Australia Felix (Ferguson, 4305). While the watercolours after Angas are relatively early for South Australian subject matter of this type, the portraits of the two Victorian Aborigines - which also happen to be more striking and more successfully executed - are significantly early in terms of the history of the settlement of Port Phillip.

        Steam Boat Wharf from Portico of Mac[k's] Hotel Gelong [sic]

      Pencil drawing and ink wash, 145 x 225 mm, titled in pencil lower right. This vignette, painted en grisaillefrom the carriage entrance to Mack's Hotel, Geelong, shows the outlook over Corio Bay. Various sailing ships are arriving and departing from the pier seen through the bluestone archway, while two well dressed visitors wait by a sign advertising carriages for hire. In all likelihood the artist was a guest at the hotel during his stay at Geelong, and painted this little scene en plein air. Built from bluestone in 1846 on the site of the earlier timber building known as the Wool Pack Inn, Mack's Hotel in Corio Terrace (now Brougham Street) ran under the proprietorship of early Geelong settler Joseph Gardner Mack. Withaccommodation for 78, stabling for 44 horses and a ballroom, the hotel by the bay was a prominent location for society events. Edward Turner arrived in Melbourne in 1856, and after visiting Geelong, Portsea and the Forest Creek diggings travelled to Sydney in 1857. He worked as an engraver, married in 1861, and in 1863 started his own business as a lithographic printer. By 1866 he was advertising as a bookseller and stationer and in 1871 he entered a partnership with William Henderson, establishing in Hunter Street a firm of booksellers, stationers, publishers and printers under the name Turner and Henderson. The firm also operated as an art gallery. Turner died in 1913; his son inherited the business, but within a year was declared bankrupt. Provenance: Acquired from the artist's descendants in Sydney by Tim McCormick in the 1980s. A collection of related works depicting Sydney and surroundings (some signed) from the same source were acquired by the Mitchell Library in 2002 (PXE 879).

        A previously unrecorded daguerreotype portrait.

      [New York: John Plumbe,, July 1846]. First generation daguerreotype, sixth-plate size (3 x 2½ ins; 70 × 58 mm), original paper seals intact (upper portion of the plate slightly cropped), with a brass preserver, housed in the original black sand-grain leather-covered wooden case, the inner edges with a gilt decorative roll, the cover lined with red velvet stamped with a floral design, two hooks and catches. Double elliptical brass mat and glass expertly supplied by Northeast Document Conservation Center. Case a little rubbed, slight oxidization along edges of plate, as is common with daguerreotypes; very good. Before what would prove to be her final departure for Europe, Margaret Fuller's fame was such that she was contacted by the famous New York daguerreotype artist John Plumbe. "Mr. Plumbe has sent to ask me if I would let him take a daguerreotype of me for his gallery", she wrote to her brother Richard on 4 July 1846, "& I should try for those for you & Eugene [their brother] at the same time". This daguerreotype was taken at that session. Until now, only three daguerreotypes of Margaret Fuller have been identified, all in institutions. The daguerreotype at Harvard (in the collection Images of the Channing, Fuller, and Loring Families, c.1850–87 (MS Am 2593); Houghton Library, Harvard University) is the only other recorded daguerreotype from the July 1846 sitting. The Harvard image, which came to the university through the Fuller family, shows Fuller facing right, as in the present daguerreotype. The Harvard catalogue dates the image "before 1850", but as Fuller sailed for Europe on 1 August 1846, it must date to July 1846. Another image, sometimes misleadingly described as "the only photographic image" of Fuller, survives in two examples in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. These are in fact second-generation copies that the Boston firm Southworth & Hawes made in 1855 for the posthumous edition of Margaret Fuller's writings that her brother Richard edited and published. The Met and MFA copies are quarter-plate size and show Fuller facing left, but are otherwise identical to the original 1846 daguerreotype now at Harvard. The reversed image is indicative that they are secondary daguerreotypes. The present, previously unrecorded daguerreotype is similar to the Harvard example, but the pose is subtly different: Fuller's shawl is wrapped tighter around her, her head is inclined closer to the book, and much of her right hand is visible. The present example then is evidently a distinct original daguerreotype taking at the 1846 sitting, in sixth-plate format. The daguerreotype is housed in its original case showing two dateable features. The case is leather-covered wood, typical of early daguerreotypes, rather than the thermoplastic "union cases" produced from about 1855 to 1865. The preserver – a brass frame that wraps the glass, mat, and image – was first used around 1847, so this is an early example. Margaret Fuller (1810–1850) was the first American to write a book on women's equality, and the first woman to be allowed access to the library at Harvard. She was the first woman journalist at the New York Tribune and the first full-time book reviewer in American journalism. Reporting from Rome during the First Italian War of Independence, she was the first female foreign war correspondent and the first to serve under combat conditions. She was the first female literary critic whose work was important enough to set the literary standards of her time. She was an outspoken advocate of women's rights, education, prison reform, the abolition of slavery, and a model for female leadership and innovative thinking. This daguerreotype captures her at the height of her fame and influence. Having served as the first editor of the Transcendentalist journal The Dial from 1840 to 1842, she continued as a contributor to it, publishing her essay "The Great Lawsuit: Man versus Men, Woman versus Women" in the magazine in 1843, in which she called for women's equality. When The Dial ceased publication in 1844, Fuller travelled west which resulted in her book Summer on the Lakes. Impressed, Horace Greeley invited her to join his New York Tribune as a book editor. Her second and most famous work, Women in the Nineteenth Century, was published in 1845, an elaboration and continuation of her earlier essay in The Dial. It is considered the first major feminist work in the United States and remains a classic text of feminist thought. In August 1846 Fuller became a foreign correspondent, leaving New York for England and France, and settling in Rome the following year.

        Relation du Voyage Fait en 1843-44 en Grèce et dans le Levant. Faite en 1845 - 1844 par A. M. Chenavard, architecte, E. Rey. peintre, professeur a l’école des beaux arts de Lyon, et J. M. Dalgabio, architect.

      Imprimerie de Léon Boitel, Lyon 1846 - [3] 173 pp. + [1 blank, 1 table de matières], ex- libris stamp of Albert Breittmayer on title page, scattered foxing, boards rubbed, otherwise copy in good condition. First and only edition of this splendid work. Brunet states that only 200 copies were printed. He is the cousin of the painter Paul Chenavard (1807-1895), and was a student of Durand and Barthélémy Vignon at the École des Beaux-Arts de Lyon. He was admitted to the National School of Fine Arts in Paris in 1809. He was one of the founding members of the Société académique d’architecture de Lyon. He served as chief architect of the Rhône department in 1818-1850, and taught at the School of Fine Arts of Our Lady in Lyon from 1823 to 1861. He made several trips to Italy and Greece between 1843 and 1844 and was named correspondent of the Institute in 1855. Chenavard had intended to produce this work in parts of 40 livraisons with 4 plates in each, which would have resulted in 160 plates. Half the numbers actually appeared, after drawings by both Chevanard and Rey. Plates 28b and 48b are not in the list of plates but were added afterwards. A leaf of text accompanies plate 28b (Statue votive a Épidaure); there appears to be no leaf of text for 48b which contains details of the wall surrounding Odysseus’s palace in Ithaca. "The Voyage en Grèce" (1858) is sometimes referred to as the 'atlas' to the second edition of the 'Relation' which appeared in 1849 under a similar title. It is in fact an independent publication, which contains a summary account of the journey made by Chenavard, Rey and Dalgabio in 1843-44, and is of great importance for the many views it contains of Athens, Delphi and Ithaca. A few plates of Egypt are also included. Bibliographic references: Blackmer 334; Atabey 229. Size: 8vo [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      Brunet I, col. 611, IV, cols. 1254-1255; Graesse I, p. 276, VI/1, p. 96; Sinkankas 1846, 1847. Two works giving an extensive description and illustration of the remarkable collection of engraved gems of Johann Martin Ebermeyer (1664-1743), with engraved pictures and scenes from classical mythology, literature, and history. The engravings in text "are exquisitely engraved. The richness of detail suggests that much of it was supplied by the artist & engraver to make more impressive what may have been a rather plain gem. Above each of the enlarged depictions appears a plain, or sometimes elaborately, jeweled mount in which the gem was set; these appear to be actual size..." (Sinkankas). According to Furtwängler (cited by Sinkankas), the gems were produced by the Nuremberg gemcutter Christoph Dorsch, and the collection was later sold to the King of Portugal. With two small bookplates. Waterstain in outer margin towards end. Lower row of medallions on table XI (opposite page 140) in volume 2 is left empty and lacking the portrait. A good copy.

This included detailed observation of the geography, oceanography, anthropology and natural history. The French navy officer Abel Aubert Du Petit Thouars (1793-1864) was "Capitaine de vaisseau" during the circumnavigation by the Vénus between 1836 and 1839. As usual, several naturalists travelled with the expedition and many botanical and zoological objects were collected and described. With 27 plates, the Mollusca section is the largest, and includes three bis-plates; the "zoophytes' has one. There are 13 plates with mammals, ten with birds, ten fish, three herpetological plates, and 16 "zoophytes". The botany, by J. Decaisne, is not coloured, as always. Plates uncut. One bird plate with a large tear, skillfully repaired. Most plates clean. In all, a very good copy of the rare zoology and botany atlases. A nice box to contain these loose sheets in can be made upon request, please inquire. Dance, A history of shell collecting, p. 134; Nissen BBI, 561; Nissen ZBI, 1211; Stafleu & Cowan, 1337.

      1846. With Vignette Illustrations on Wood by Samuel Palmer. London: Published for the Author by Bradbury & Evans, 1846. 2 pp undated preliminary ads plus 2 pp undated ads. Original blue cloth. First Edition of Dickens's account of his 1844 tour of Italy.~His description of the coaching trips which took him from place to place for five months is full of wonderful observations of his fellow-men... His account of a public execution in Rome is remarkable -- his emotional reaction is held firmly in control but revulsion at the whole proceeding is implicit in every line. [CGEL]~Smith cites bindings both of fine-diaper cloth and of horizontally-ribbed cloth (no priority -- see his Note 3); there are also copies in vertically-ribbed cloth -- and this is such a copy. Condition is remarkably fine and bright -- essentially no wear other than a mildly-bumped fore-corner, the original endpapers present and uncracked, no foxing on the leaves within. PICTURES FROM ITALY is not a particularly scarce book, but fine copies such as this have become quite scarce. Smith II pp 44-58. Housed in a full-morocco clamshell case.

      Paris: Edite par W. Coquebert, n.d. [1846].. Small quarto, pp. [1-4] 1-324, engraved illustrations by Bertall, O. Penguilly and St.-Germain, ten on inserted plates, numerous others in the text, original decorated cloth, front and rear panels stamped in blind and gold, spine panel stamped in gold, marbled endpapers. First edition. Versins calls this the first detailed forecast of the future (aside perhaps from Webb's THE MUMMY, 1827) to explore the malignant repercussions of advancing technology. With its extravagant and grotesque illustrations, it makes a fitting bookend to Robida's LA VINGTIEME SIECLE (1883), steam versus electricity, to bracket the first flowering of French dystopian literature, serving as a model, despite its faults, of all the futuristic nightmares that followed, even into the twentieth century (Versins, pp. 822-824). Souvestre projects Marthe and Maurice, his observers from the present day, into the year 3000 and sets them down in Tahiti, where scantily-clad people live in a machine-ridden age. Pipes dispense not only water in homes but fire, light and fresh air. An endless roll of newsprint displays the breaking news of the hour (sound like the Internet?). The very clouds are mined for water and electricity. Infants are handed over to steam-operated feeding machines before being classified by phrenologists and assigned a purpose in life corresponding to their physiognomy. They are then moved to greenhouses where the correct degree of heat ensures the maturation of their brains. All learning is based on the memorization of mnemonic devices. Criminals are either given very lenient or very severe treatment, the latter sent to solitary confinement until they have devolved into complete stupefaction. The technology of 3000 is dominated by steam (including steam-powered shoes) and balloons. Fanciful flying machines present some of the most charming images. Versins credits the little-known Charles Nodier's 1833 compositions, HURLUBLEU and LEVIATHAN-LE-LONG as influences on Souvestre. Versins, Encyclopédie de l'Utopie, des Voyages Extraordinaires, et de la Science Fiction, pp. 822-24. Cloth worn at edges, splits to cloth along outer joints repaired, considerable foxing throughout (regrettably common to this book), a sound, good copy. (#153226)

        [Collection of 52 botanical watercolour drawings, mostly signed "v.d. H."]. [Utrecht], 1878-1879, 1893. Collection of 52 drawings, containing 46 watercolour drawings on wove and laid paper (most measuring ca. 31.5 x 20), with plant name, date and signature "v.d. H." added in manuscript, 1 double-page watercolour of grasses, 4 smaller sketches in pencil, and 2 pen and in ink drawings, one showing a cross-section of a live sponge, and the other a small caricature of gentleman (Van der Harst?) standing between animated plants and flowers, smelling a flower. Contemporary portfolio, made from 2 paperboards.

      For Van der Harst: NNBW I, pp. 1028-1029. Collection of well-executed botanical drawings of indigenous Dutch plants, mostly herbs, by the Utrecht botany and pharmacology teacher and skilled amateur artist, Dr. Leendert Johannes van der Harst (1846-1897). Although the manuscript itself does not name him, most of the drawings are initialed "v. d. H." and the front board of the portfolio has his ink stamp. The herbs are often accompanied by small plant details and all have some manuscript explanatory text. The names of the plants are added in Latin and other observations in Dutch. Van der Harst studied medicine and pharmacology in Middelburg then took a doctorate at the Deventer Academy to teach botony, zoology, geology and mineralogy in middle-schools. Before taking his degrees he worked in apothecaries in both cities. He found his calling as a teacher in Utrecht, first at the Rijks Hoogere Burgerschool (1869) and then at the Veterinary School (1873), where he taught botany, pharmacology and other subjects. He used his considerable artistic talent to illustrate his lectures. He was also chairman of the Utrecht chapter of the Dutch Society for Horticulture and Botany.Some faint occasional foxing, otherwise in good condition. One of the cloth ties is broken at the hinge and their external parts are faded.

        Esame teoretico pratico sulla Omiopatia

      BIGEL Gerard Joseph Marie. Esame teoretico pratico sulla Omiopatia del Dottor Bigel. Traduzione dal francese fatta sull'edizione di Varsavia da Nicolò Vincenzo Laraja. Napoli, dalla Tipografia Tramater, 1846. In 8vo; pp.XVIII, 380. Firma autografa del traduttore. Fior. Mezza pelle coeva, titolo e fregi in oro al dorso. Dall'introduzione: "Fra i tanti assennati, che l'han fatto le migliori accoglienze, ed i maggiori ossequi va annoverato il rinomato Dott. Bigel di nazione francese. Costui è quegli che con questa sua opera, e con altre di egual merito ha saputo così ben esporre la nuova dottrina medica di Hahnemann (fondatore della Omiopatia), illustrarla con fatti incontrastabili, con saggi ragionamenti dimostrare la ragionevolezza dei suoi principi fondamentali, e della pratica al letto dell'infermo, che ne fa toccare con mani la verità, la chiarezza, l'utilità, la facilità, non risparmiando studi, e sperimenti. Può chiamarsi l'apologista per eccellenza dell'omiopatia, imparziale, giusto, eloquente più che ogni altro. Il traduttore colla versione ha inteso di secondare gli umani disegni di Hahnemann, le benefiche mire di Bigel, lo zelo pietoso della lunga classe dei proseliti omiopatici, affinchè non rimanga mezzo, e via, a diffondere in tutti, e da per tutto il salutare metodo curativo, l'Anemanniano favore". Il dottor Gerard Joseph Marie Bigel (1764-1832) nato in Francia, studiò presso l'École de Médecine di Strasburgo, venne a conoscenza e adottò il nuovo metodo curativo durante un viaggio in Germania al seguito del Granduca Costantino di Russia. Successivamente praticò l'omeopatia a San Pietroburgo e a Varsavia dove nel 1827 pubblicò per la prima volta un'opera in tre volumi in francese sulle teorie e i metodi del dottor Hahnemann.

        Message From the President... Communicating a Report of an Expedition Led by Lieutenant Abert, on the Upper Arkansas and Through the Country of the Camanche Indians, in the Fall of the Year 1845

      Washington: G.P.O., 1846. 29th Congress, 1st Session, Senate Doc. 438, Serial 477. Original wraps. 8vo. 75pp. 12 lithograph plates; large folding map. Stitched wraps (disbound). Light dampstaining throughout, otherwise fine condition (and scarce thus) in modern cloth case with gilt-lettered morocco label at spine. Under Fremont's orders, Abert travelled from Bent's Fort to Raton Pass, down the Canadian River, to Old Fort Holmes, through the Creek Nation ending at Fort Gibson. "It is said that Abert made the first astronomical observations through this unknown country and his report is therefore of special importance. The map is one of great interest." Wheat Transmissippi. Wheat also suggests that Charles Preuss drew the map for publication. The lithograph plates show striking views of West Texas and Oklahoma; one is the noted plate of Bent's Fort. (Wheat Transmissippi 489; Rittenhouse 1; Graff 6; Wagner-Camp 120; Howes A10; Sabin 59).
