        Sydney in 1848: Illustrated by copper-plate engravings

      Sydney: D. Wall, 76 York Street, n.d. but, 1848. Quarto, with full page copper plate engravings throughout, owner's name "Alfred C. Johnson"; a good copy in the original pink papered boards (stained and spotted), preserved in a blue folding quarter morocco book-form box, lettered to the spine. First edition, first issue of Australia's first work devoted to architecture, showing the Georgian heritage of Sydney at a time when it was a city of just 50,000 inhabitants: 'invaluable for the early topography of Sydney' (Ferguson). Joseph Fowles arrived in Sydney in 1838 and this is without doubt his most important work, providing remarkably detailed information on the buildings of mid-nineteenth-century Sydney. As Morton Herman puts it, 'the Sydney he records was a lovely colonial town of clean, chaste Georgian architecture. Whole streets were pleasant compositions of harmonious buildings, few of them over three stories high, all clearly designed, well mannered and an orderly delight to the eye…' (Foreword to the facsimile edition of 1963). Published by subscription, this work consists of forty "Copperplate Engravings of the Principal Streets, Public Buildings, Churches, Chapels, Etc.". Fowles stated that its express purpose was 'to remove the erroneous and discreditable notions connected with the Colony'. It is one of the rarer Australian illustrated books whilst its importance to architectural history is without rival. No further such detailed study appeared for at least fifty years. The handful of small illustrations of printers establishments used in this list all derive from this work. This work was re issued in 1878 with the text reset, and has been reprinted many times over. This first edition is greatly enhanced by its forty fine copper-engravings produced in Sydney. It was first issued in parts (an almost impossible rarity today; we offered such a set in a recent catalogue): this is its first appearance in bookform, here in the first issue (with a sheet of reviews and advertisements, omitted from later issues, following the title-page). These illustrations were engraved by W. Harris from original drawing done by Fowles and were well received by the press as "superior to any previous attempts at representing Sydney as it really is… " (Bell's Life in Sydney). Throughout his life Fowles taught as well as practised art. He was in charge of the training and examination of art teachers for the National Board of Education from 1854 until 1867 when the board was succeeded by the Council of Education. It was largely through his efforts that drawing was being taught in every government school in New South Wales by the surprisingly early date of 1869. He was also drawing master at a number of private schools, including The King's School, Sydney Grammar, Sydney High and Camden College, as well as at the Sydney Mechanics School of Arts (lessons £1 a quarter).

        Rare Force engraving of the Declaration of Independence printed in 1848

      The Peter Force engraving of the Declaration of Independence, with remarkably exact renditions of the signers? hands. One of the best representations of the original manuscript Declaration, perhaps as few as 500 copies issued. Broadside: "The Unanimous Declaration of the Thirteen United States of America." [Washington: M. St. Clair Clarke and Peter Force, 1848], one page 26" x 29", copperplate engraving on thin rice paper. By 1820 the original Declaration of Independence (now housed at the National Archives in Washington, D.C.) showed serious signs of age and wear from handling. John Quincy Adams, then Secretary of State, commissioned William J. Stone to engrave an exact copy of the original onto a copper plate. In 1823, Congress ordered 200 official copies printed on vellum. Fewer than 40 of Stone?s printing on vellum are known to have survived, with at least 21 of those housed in institutions and public collections. ?These copies are characterized by the legend engraved in the left super

        The Rapids at Niagara

      Goupil, Vibert & Co, New York & Paris 1848 - A finely observed view of one of the great natural wonders of the world. An excellent image from K?llner's highly important series Views of American Cities (New York and Paris, 1848-1851). This series of 54 plates was commissioned from K?llner by Goupil, Vibert and Company and was issued both coloured and uncoloured. Born in W?rttemburg in 1812, K?llner's first recorded work dates from his employment at the age of sixteen by the Stuttgart printer Carl Ebner to work on portfolios of etchings of horses and other animals. He came to America in 1839 and settled in Washington briefly, before moving to Philadelphia in 1840 where he lived and worked for the next 60 years. The present print is from what was probably his most important commission and certainly brought him to the attention of the art-buying public. K?llner's body of topographic work "makes a distinct contribution to the documentation of the nineteenth-century American scene" (Deak p.334). Cf. Deak 560; J. Harper Early Painters and Engravers in Canada p.183; Spendlove The Face of Early Canada p.72. Lithograph, printed in colours and finished by hand, by Isidore-Laurent Deroy, printed by Cattier.

        Orange-fronted Epthianura (Epthianura Aurifrons)

      London: published by the Author, 1848. Hand-coloured lithograph (510 x 350 mm), with letter-press text. The "Orange Chat" of inland Australia. Delicately hand coloured original lithographic plate from Gould's most famous work, Birds of Australia, one of the great natural history publications of all time. Known more commonly today as the Orange Chat, Epthianura Aurifronis was noted by Gould at the time to be of greatest rarity. As both a dedicated ornithologist and entrepreneurial publisher, Gould's lasting contribution to was his lavish series of colour plate folios. Indeed, his biographer Allan McEvey asserts that 'nothing can detract from this gargantuan achievement that ranks highly in the world's ornithology' (John Gould's Contribution to British Art, 1973). Birds of Australia was one of Gould's most successful publishing endeavours. The series of plates was issued in a limited edition of 250 copies, after which the original lithographic stones were effaced to ensure no further copies could be printed. Of these, some 180 copies were sold by subscription, with the remainder offered as splendid bound volumes. Individual plates from the Birds of Australia are now both scarce and eagerly collected.

        Nine Years in Van Diemen's Land... An Essay on Prison Discipline... with Anecdotes of Bushrangers

      Dundee: W. Middleton, 1848. Duodecimo, some toning, bookplate of Charles R.J. Glover; a very good copy in the original green ribbed cloth, fraying at the hinges and a few bumps. Charming account of Tasmania in the 1830s and 1840s. One of the better and most detailed accounts of life in Tasmania, based on the experiences of a settler who arrived from Liverpool in 1836, and full of interesting anecdotes about everyday life in the colony. Syme is particularly good on farming, agriculture and natural history, and his intimate observations and monthly reports on conditions in Tasmania give a lively insight into the colony, much in the tradition of White's famous account of Selbourne. The account is full of revealing comments such as 'the bondicoot is a mischievous little visitor to potatoe grounds'. Syme was also employed in the prisons system for five years, and his extensive notes are a far cry from abstract theorising, with all manner of stories and examples drawn from his personal experience. His "Essay on Prison Discipline" includes potted biographies of many more notable Tasmanian convicts. Syme returned to the United Kingdom on the Tamar in 1847 and published this work shortly after.

        Elogio Historico de Jose Banks , Lid na Sessao Publica da Academia Real das Sciencias de 22 de Janeiro de 1843

      Lisboa: na Typografia da Mesma Academia Mesma Academia, 1848. Quarto, 11 pages, laid paper watermarked 1843, rather dusted and a few spots; in early (original?) plain pink paper wrappers, rather worn at edges and spine, marking from a later bookplate, but a very good copy, preserved in a buckram sleeve and slipcase. Attractive copy of a very unusual work, a paper presented in Portuguese in 1843 on the life of Sir Joseph Banks. Manoel Maria José da Costa was an influential man of letters and scientist, for many years secretary of the Academia Real des Sciencias de Lisboa. Although not as well-known as Banks, his writings show a similar range and deal with a broad variety of scientific subjects, so it is possible to speculate that da Costa saw some sort of affinity with the illustrious Banks. Having said that, the mind boggles at just how Sir Joseph would have responded to being referred to throughout da Costa's lecture as "José". This is a highly uncommon pamphlet, and seemingly not known to the Banks scholar Harold B. Carter (see his Sir Joseph Banks (1743-1820) A guide to biographical and bibliographical sources).

        The British Colonies; Their History, Extent, Condition and Resources

      J. and F. Tallis, n.d., but, London and New York 1848 - Eight volumes, large octavo, with numerous plates and maps, some hand-coloured; a very fine, bright set in the original red cloth, spines and front boards richly decorated in gilt. .000000000000000. A set in particularly fine condition. First published in 1834 and extensively revised and extended over the next twenty years, Martin's comprehensive account of the British Colonies encapsulates the remarkable growth of the British Empire under Queen Victoria. A former Colonial Treasurer at Hong Kong, Martin's constantly revised and expanded book is "a work of extraordinary research, reference, and completeness" (Hocken), although it is perhaps now most notable for the fine series of highly decorative handcoloured Tallis maps that illustrate it. This set, complete in eight parts, is not recorded in the bibliographies, although Ferguson's 4822a describes what we take to be a prospectus for this edition. This edition not in Bagnall, Ferguson, or Hocken. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Die Grundlagen der Arithmetik: eine logisch-mathematische Untersuchung über den Begriff der Zahl.'Arguably the first work of analytic philosophy'. Breslau: Wilhelm Koebner, 1884.

      First edition, rare, of Frege's second book. "<i>Die Grundlagen der Arithmetik</i> is Frege's masterpiece: it is his most powerful and most pregnant piece of philosophical writing, composed when he was at the very height of his powers. It was written as a prolegomenon to his <i>magnum opus</i>, <i>Grundgesetze der Arithmetik</i>... presented without unfamiliar symbolism and with a minimum amount of symbolism of any kind, in the hope of reaching as wide an audience as possible " (Michael Dummett, <i>Frege: Philosophy of Mathematics</i>, p. 1).<br/><br/> "In the preface to <i>Begriffsschrift</i>, Frege announced his interest in determining whether the basic truths of arithmetic could be proven 'by means of pure logic.' Kant's answer had been negative. According to Kant, the truths of arithmetic are synthetic a priori... One of Frege's main goals in his <i>Die Grundlagen der Arithmetik</i> was to refute this view by giving purely logical proofs of the basic laws of arithmetic, thereby showing that arithmetical truths can be known independently of any intuition...<br/><br/> "<i>Grundlagen</i> is important for a number of reasons. The philosophy of arithmetic developed in the book is of continuing interest. Moreover, a large number of more specific theses propounded there have had a profound influence on later philosophers, including Ludwig Wittgenstein, W. V. Quine and Michael Dummett, to name but three. More generally, <i>Grundlagen</i> is arguably the first work of analytic philosophy" (<i>Routledge Encyclopedia of Philosophy</i>, Vol. 3, p. 772). <br/><br/> "It is in [the <i>Grundlagen</i>] that [Frege] appeared for the first time, and to best advantage, as a philosopher and not merely as a logician. After an introductory announcement of his program the book contains a long, destructive attack on the views of his predecessors and contemporaries on two questions: What are numbers? What is the nature of arithmetical truth? The attack is brilliantly successful: the views Frege criticized are totally annihilated. He then outlined his own method of defining the basic notions of arithmetic in purely logical terms and proving the basic laws of arithmetic from purely logical principles. This account was deliberately formulated without the use of symbolism (other than letters for variables). The work is fascinating even for those quite uninterested in the philosophy of mathematics, since in the course of it many ideas are presented which are of significance for the whole of philosophy" (Dummett in <i>The Encyclopedia of Philosophy</i> III, p. 226). <br/><br/> "Gottlob Frege (1848-1925), German mathematician and logician, founded modern mathematical logic. Working on the borderline between philosophy and mathematics, Frege discovered, on his own, the fundamental ideas that have made possible the whole modern development of logic and thereby invented an entire discipline" (<i>Britannica</i>).<br/><br/> DSB V, 153; Poggendorff IV, 1707. COPAC lists copies at BL, Cambridge & Oxford only.. 8vo (214 x 143), pp [12, including first blank], xi [1], 119, [1], early 20th century half-cloth and marbled boards, a very fine and clean copy

A fine Australian view by Robert Marsh Westmacott (1801-1870) from his Sketches in Australia, a series of tinted lithographic plates of Sydney and Harbour areas, mountains and southern coastal regions of New South Wales, "drawn from nature". Little is known of Westmacott, except that he was a captain in the 4th (King&#39;s Own)Regiment, and that he spent the early 1840s in Australia. His published views represent the last in the chronology of work by military or naval officers in the romantic landscape tradition of the early 19th century.

        LETTRE INÉDITE TÉMOIGNANT DE L'INSURRECTION OUVRIÈRE DU 23 AU 26 JUIN 1848 À PARIS et particulièrement des interventions des insurgés dans son immeuble 6, Place des Vosges, résidence de Victor Hugo

      12 juillet 1848, Paris - 6pp 21cm x 13cm sur trois feuillets, le premier portant le monogramme de l'auteur, 194 lignes. "Plis d'envoi, très légères petites salissures, coin supérieur droit du deuxième feuillet avec petits plis et très petit manque sans perte de texte, troisième feuillet avec déchirure verticale de 5,5cm au bord supérieur et de 0,5cm au bord inférieur et petits plis aux coins droits, sinon très bon état, écriture soignée et très lisible. Ambroise Dupuis, ancien inspecteur des écoles primaires du 8ème arrondissement de Paris devenu rentier, était Sergent-Major à la 8ème Légion de la Garde Nationale. Dans ces fonctions, il avait échappé de peu, le 28 juillet 1835, à l'attentat de Fieschi contre Louis-Philippe, venant de permuter de place avec un Sergent qui fut décapité par l'explosion. Lors de l'insurrection du 23 au 26 juin 1848, survenue suite à la fermeture des Ateliers nationaux décidée par la Commission exécutive de la IIème République, 4000 insurgés, 800 militaires et 800 gardes nationaux ont été tués. Ambroise Dupuis écrit longuement à son frère (Philippe, pâtissier-traiteur à Grenoble) le 12 juillet: "( ) Le massacre de la St Barthélémy, la révolution de 93, celle de 1830 et celle du 24 février dernier ( ) ne sont rien comparativement à ce qui vient de se passer dans Paris, principalement dans notre quartier et surtout dans notre maison, Place des Vosges, 6 ( ). (Le 23 juin), à 4 heures du matin, j'ai reçu l'ordre de commander 30 hommes pour garder la Mairie ( ) Les insurgés tiraient sur tous ceux qu'ils rencontraient en uniforme ( ) Le marchand de vin, chez lequel je me suis réfugié, m'a fait déshabiller, m'a prêté une redingote, une cravate et un bonnet rouge (emblème de la République) ( ). Le lendemain, un bataillon du 18ème Léger, fort de 400 hommes, accouru au secours de notre Mairie, venait d'y prendre position" (il décrit le combat avec les insurgés qui se sont emparés du premier et du deuxième étage). "Une autre bande d'insurgés, pénétrant dans l'impasse Guémenée (tu sais que les croisées de notre salon donnent sur cette impasse) mettent le feu à la petite porte de derrière de notre maison ( ) Une grêle de balles pleuvait sur nous ( ). Notre concierge, voyant que l'incendie gagnait les écuries et qu'on tirait sur les locataires, a ouvert une petite porte pour favoriser l'entrée des insurgés. Arrivés dans la cour, ils se sont battus avec rage, ont tué un capitaine, un lieutenant et plusieurs soldats du 18e Léger ( ) Les insurgés ont pris possession de la Mairie ( ). Les insurgés ( ) sont venus chez moi au nombre de 5, tous armés, me forcer de marcher avec eux, et exigeant que je mette ma tunique pour faire accroire que la garde nationale était de leur côté ( ) Un des 5, faisant partie de ma compagnie, leur dit que j'étais son sergent-major et un bon enfant ( ) je leur donne un fusil appartenant à la légion et ils s'en vont en disant que j'étais un bon garçon, ( ) qu'ils me protégeraient". D'autres insurgés suivent il leur remet 18 sabres; une balle tombe dans le salon "Les insurgés se sont battus longtemps en face de notre impasse qui aboutit rue St Antoine. Je les voyais ces malheureux se battre avec férocité. A une barrière défendue par 80 hommes s'est présenté un détachement de 91 soldats, ils ne sont restés que 9. Tous les officiers ont été tués." Il décrit les dégâts dans le quartier, la barricade où ont été tués le Général Négrier et l'Archevêque de Paris et cite un projet de décret que l'on a trouvé, écrit au crayon, qui rétablit notamment la Constitution de 1793; il ne peut plus retirer l'argent qu'il avait déposé à la caisse d'épargne, etc Le 6, Place des Vosges, actuelle Maison Victor Hugo, était l'immeuble où habitait l'écrivain depuis 1832; il y occupait au deuxième étage un appartement de 280m avec son épouse Adèle et leurs quatre enfants et y accueillait tout ce que Paris comptait de célébrités littéraires et politiques. Il était absent de chez lui lors des événements. A noter que dans "Choses vues. Le te

        The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire. 8 volumes complete

      London: Longman, Brown, Green and Longmans, 1848. First editions of each volumes. Octavo, original three quarters leathers, gilt tooling to the spine. Frontispiece of Gibbon to volume one. Contains fold out maps. Marbled enpapers and marbled edges. From the library of Andrew Dickson White, with his bookplate to each volume. Dickson White was a United States diplomat, historian, and educator, who was the co-founder of Cornell University. In very good condition.This masterpiece of historical penetration and literary style has remained one of the ageless historical works&#133; Gibbon brought a width of vision and a critical mastery of the available sources which have not been equalled to this day; and the result was clothed in inimitable prose" (PMM 222). "For 22 years Gibbon was a prodigy of steady and arduous application. His investigations extended over almost the whole range of intellectual activity for nearly 1500 years. And so thorough were his methods that the laborious investigations of German scholarship, the keen criticisms of theological zeal, and the steady researches of (two) centuries have brought to light very few important errors in the results of his labors. But it is not merely the learning of his work, learned as it is, that gives it character as a history. It is also that ingenious skill by which the vast erudition, the boundless range, the infinite variety, and the gorgeous magnificence of the details are all wrought together in a symmetrical whole. It is still entitled to be esteemed as the greatest historical work ever written" (Adams, Manual of Historical Literature, 146-7).

        The Rocky Mountains from the Columbia River looking N.W

      [London]: Dickinson & Co, 1848. An important image of the American west before it was touched by Western civilization: the Rockies &#39;capped and dazzling in their white mantle of snow&#39; (Warre). Henry James Warre was an English army officer who was assigned to Canada, where he examined and reported on river communications between Montreal and the Red River settlements in the Oregon Territory, and points beyond. He left Montreal in May, 1845, and returned there in July of the following year. The best of the sketches he made during the expedition were published in Warre&#39;s Sketches in North America and the Oregon Territory (London: 1848), which also included a map and narrative text, &#39;Sketch of the Journey&#39;. The present image is one of the best prints from this spectacular work. . In the &#39;Sketch of the Journey&#39; he writes: &#39;At fort Colville, we again embarked in boats to ascend the Upper Columbia river to the Boat Encampment, a distance of 250 miles. We abandoned the boats at this point, and commenced on foot, the ascent of the Rocky Mountains. We had for many days been surrounded by magnificent mountains... The mountains are about 10,000 feet in height, unequalled in any part of Switzerland for the ruggedness of their peaks and beauty of form, capped and dazzling in their white mantle of snow&#39;. Cf.

        Révolutions Politiques et Sociales de 1848, prédites en 1843. Le Hachych

      Paris: Comptoir des Imprimeurs-Unis, 1848. Octavo, uncut and mostly unopened; some foxing else a good copy in the original printed yellow wrappers, becoming loose at gutters. Author&#39;s presentation copy of the second edition of Lallemand&#39;s rare tale of the coming society, and the first to attribute authorship. First published as Le Hachych in 1843, its new title here is more explicit as to its intents. This was the first European work to use the drug hashish as its basic plot device. The work purports to be a translation from an Arabic manuscript which the author has discovered in his cabin whilst sailing for Marseille. It veers between the sensational and the doctrinal, particularly in its fundamental conceit that hashish not only provides consolation for the present, but an intimation and aspect of the future. In the early 1840s the French psychiatrist Moreau had begun studying the possible therapeutic applications of hashish, in the process installing himself as purveyor to the famous Club des Hachichins, an elegant coterie presided over by author and dilettante Gautier. But it fell to the well-known surgeon and republican socialist Lallemand to write the first European work to use the drug as its basic plot device. This copy is inscribed by Lallemand "A mon ami Lougian [?sp]" in his distinctive sepia ink.

        Memoir of a Tour to Northern Mexico, Connected with Col. Doniphan's Expedition, in 1846 and 1847.

      Washington: Tippin & Streeper, Printers, 1848. 30th Congress, 1st Session, Miscellaneous no. 26. - 8vo., (9 x 5 ¾ inches). 2 fine folding lithographed maps, and folding profile of the route from Independence to Chihuahua via Santa Fe and El Paso (one medium tear along fold, one or two short tears, slight offsetting). Modern marbled paper boards in antique style, red morocco lettering piece with gilt title to spine. First edition, Senate issue. "The original printing of an indispensable source for anyone researching the Mexican War" (Tutorow 1761). "The first map (the journey map) of considerable value a number of routes to New Mexico and across Texas are shown, and Doniphan's campaign is carefully followed from Independence, through New and Old Mexico to the camp of June 2nd, 1847 near the mouth of the Rio Grande" (Wheat, Mapping the Transmississippi West, III, pp. 53-54). In 1846 Wislizenus, a German doctor, left his practice in St. Louis for one of his periodical expeditions. His intention was "to gather information on the geography and natural history of northern Mexico and California." Shortly after he started down the Santa Fe Trail in May, however, war broke out with Mexico. He accompanied a caravan of wagons belonging to trader Albert Speyer, who was transporting two wagonloads of arms and ammunition ordered by the governor of Chihuahua. The train was consequently pursued a considerable distance down the trail by a detachment of U.S. dragoons. At Santa Fe, Wislizenus obtained a safe-conduct pass from the New Mexican governor and then traveled south along the Chihuahua Trail, passing through El Paso del Norte and arriving in the city of Chihuahua on 24 August. Because of his gathering of plant specimens and other scientific data in and near the city, Wislizenus was suspected of being a spy. He was later refused permission to leave the state and was held along with several American merchants at the village of Cusihuiriáchic, approximately ninety miles to the west, until 3 March 1847, after U.S. troops under Colonel Alexander Doniphan had taken Chihuahua. "Abandoning his planned visit to California, Wislizenus took a position as assistant surgeon with Doniphan's force, traveling with the army on its return to the United States via Saltillo, Monterrey, Matamoros, and New Orleans, arriving in St. Louis in early July. Despite the various difficulties of the trip, he brought back much important information on the physical character of the Southwest and Mexico. His journal, along with his meteorological tables, maps, and a botanical appendix prepared from his specimens by Engelmann, was published by the U.S. Senate in 1848 as 'Memoir of a Tour to Northern Mexico, Connected with Col. Doniphan's Expedition, in 1846 and 1847'" (Mark L. Gardner for ANB). Howes W597. Plains & Rockies IV:159:1. Raines, p. 221. Rittenhouse 656. Wheat, Mapping the Transmississippi West 701 & III, pp. 10 & 143.

        Elogio Historico de Jose Banks , Lid na Sessao Publica da Academia Real das Sciencias de 22 de Janeiro de 1843

      na Typografia da Mesma Academia Mesma Academia, Lisboa 1848 - Quarto, 11 pages, laid paper watermarked 1843, rather dusted and a few spots; in early (original?) plain pink paper wrappers, rather worn at edges and spine, marking from a later bookplate, but a very good copy, preserved in a buckram sleeve and slipcase. Attractive copy of a very unusual work, a paper presented in Portuguese in 1843 on the life of Sir Joseph Banks. Manoel Maria José da Costa was an influential man of letters and scientist, for many years secretary of the Academia Real des Sciencias de Lisboa. Although not as well-known as Banks, his writings show a similar range and deal with a broad variety of scientific subjects, so it is possible to speculate that da Costa saw some sort of affinity with the illustrious Banks. Having said that, the mind boggles at just how Sir Joseph would have responded to being referred to throughout da Costa's lecture as "José". This is a highly uncommon pamphlet, and seemingly not known to the Banks scholar Harold B. Carter (see his Sir Joseph Banks (1743-1820) A guide to biographical and bibliographical sources).

        Autograph letter signed to an unidentified correspondent

      London, 1848. London, 1848. <p>Hooker, William Jackson (1785-1865). Autograph letter signed to an unidentified correspondent. [London,] Royal Gardens, Kew, Nov. 16, 1848. 2-1/2pp. 178 x 112 mm. Fine.</p><p>Hooker, the first full-time director of the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew, devoted himself to the study of botany from an early age, specializing in mosses, liverworts and other cryptogamia. He served as regius professor of botany at the University of Glasgow from 1820 to 1841, when he was appointed to head Kew Gardens. Under Hooker&#39;s leadership Kew grew from eleven acres to its present size of nearly 300 acres, and its collections vastly increased, largely due to a network of Hooker&#39;s former students who brought in specimens from around the world. Hooker&#39;s own herbarium, which contained some 4000 volumes and one million dried plant specimens, was purchased by the British government for the nation after Hooker&#39;s death. Hooker was the author of over two dozen works on botany, including British Jungermanniae (1816), which established hepaticology (the study of liverworts) as a separate field; he also edited several botanical journals. </p><p>In his letter Hooker thanks his correspondent for sending him plant specimens from India:</p><p>"The two cases of Plants for Dr. Falconer were delivered in good time. I have now to thank you for a parcel received today from Mr. Dalzell, Bombay, containing some very interesting Plants. <p>"Truly I have much more novelty from the East of India than any other portion of that vast territory."</p><p>"Dr. Falconer" refers to Hugh Falconer (1808-65), the distinguished botanist, geologist and paleontologist who was the first to come up with a "punctuated equilibrium" theory of evolution. Falconer spent many years in India, where he ran the Saharanpur and Calcutta botanical gardens and put together an enormous collection of plant and fossil specimens from the region.</p><p>Hooker also touches on the activities of his son, naturalist Joseph Dalton Hooker (1817-1911):</p><p>"You know, I dare say that Kinchinjunga [i.e., Kangchenjunga, in the Himalayas5] is now ascertained to be the highest mountain in the world, 28,172 ft.-about 60 miles north of Darjeeling. Dr. Hooker is now gone to explore it, as much as he can."</p><p>Joseph Hooker spent three years (1848-50) exploring the Himalayas, and was the first European to collect plants from the region. Kangchenjunga, which straddles the border between India and Nepal, was believed to be the world&#39;s tallest mountain until 1852, when the results of the British Great Trigonometric Survey revealed that Mt. Everest was the taller peak. </p>

        Sydney in 1848: Illustrated by copper-plate engravings.

      D. Wall, 76 York Street, n.d. but, Sydney 1848 - Quarto, with full page copper plate engravings throughout, owner's name "Alfred C. Johnson"; a good copy in the original pink papered boards (stained and spotted), preserved in a blue folding quarter morocco book-form box, lettered to the spine. First edition, first issue of Australia's first work devoted to architecture, showing the Georgian heritage of Sydney at a time when it was a city of just 50,000 inhabitants: 'invaluable for the early topography of Sydney' (Ferguson). Joseph Fowles arrived in Sydney in 1838 and this is without doubt his most important work, providing remarkably detailed information on the buildings of mid-nineteenth-century Sydney. As Morton Herman puts it, 'the Sydney he records was a lovely colonial town of clean, chaste Georgian architecture. Whole streets were pleasant compositions of harmonious buildings, few of them over three stories high, all clearly designed, well mannered and an orderly delight to the eye?' (Foreword to the facsimile edition of 1963). Published by subscription, this work consists of forty "Copperplate Engravings of the Principal Streets, Public Buildings, Churches, Chapels, Etc.". Fowles stated that its express purpose was 'to remove the erroneous and discreditable notions connected with the Colony'. It is one of the rarer Australian illustrated books whilst its importance to architectural history is without rival. No further such detailed study appeared for at least fifty years. The handful of small illustrations of printers establishments used in this list all derive from this work. This work was re issued in 1878 with the text reset, and has been reprinted many times over. This first edition is greatly enhanced by its forty fine copper-engravings produced in Sydney. It was first issued in parts (an almost impossible rarity today; we offered such a set in a recent catalogue): this is its first appearance in bookform, here in the first issue (with a sheet of reviews and advertisements, omitted from later issues, following the title-page). These illustrations were engraved by W. Harris from original drawing done by Fowles and were well received by the press as "superior to any previous attempts at representing Sydney as it really is? " (Bell's Life in Sydney). Throughout his life Fowles taught as well as practised art. He was in charge of the training and examination of art teachers for the National Board of Education from 1854 until 1867 when the board was succeeded by the Council of Education. It was largely through his efforts that drawing was being taught in every government school in New South Wales by the surprisingly early date of 1869. He was also drawing master at a number of private schools, including The King's School, Sydney Grammar, Sydney High and Camden College, as well as at the Sydney Mechanics School of Arts (lessons £1 a quarter).

        Sarawak; Its Inhabitants and Productions : being Notes during a Residence in that Country with His Excellency Mr. Brooke

      Richard Bentley, London 1848 - Octavo, with 7 engraved plates; a good copy in contemporary half calf, respined. The first issue (the title-page was subsequently amended to read "H.H. The Rajah Brooke") of Low's account of Sarawak at the beginning of a century of rule by the British Raj. James Brooke, a former military officer of the East India Company, had visited the territory (now part of Malaysia) in 1839 and assisted the sultan in suppressing a revolt. He was rewarded in 1841 by being granted the position of rajah of Sarawak. Despite his endeavours to suppress head-hunting, Low's account provides detailed observations of this practice, as well as information about a number of tribes, to many of whom he represented the first point of white contact.
