      Hering & Remington, London 1848 - 1 hand-colored lithograph 430 x 527 mm. (image is 264 x 372 mm.; mat is 19.5 x 23.25 inches).

This is plate no. 14, showing two falconers from Kohistan, Khudadard and Guldin, with their hawks. Rattray saw them in September 1841 when they were part of the cavalry escort of his brother, Captain Rattray. Green dealer's label on back of mat from Harold T. Storey, London. Very scarce.

        South Australia. [drop-title] . . . Statements prepared and published under the Sanction of the Committee, appointed for the Diffusion of Information on the State and Prospects of South Australia

      Alfred Boot, Printer, 3, Dockhead, Bermondsey [for George Fife Angas], [London] 1848 - [1848]. Duodecimo (approximately 186 x 116 mm), 16 pages (last blank). A saddle-stitched drop-title pamphlet; small portions of the blank leading margin slightly stained; small dob of wax to the top right-hand corner of the last page (presumably the item had been mounted in an album or scrapbook at some stage); a very good copy. This copy is inscribed and signed at the head of the first page 'London, 1 Jany 1848. G.F. Angas London'. At the foot of the page Angas has written 'G.F. Angas prepared this tract & printed & circulated many thousands of them in England at his own cost. - before he went to So. Aust'a himself'. We can find no record of this item - and even if another copy has survived, and eventually surfaces, it cannot begin to compare with this exquisitely-annotated example. It is surely the type specimen . . . The role of George Fife Angas (1789-1879) in the foundation and settlement of South Australia is too well-known to require elaboration here. The South Australian Company, which he formed in October 1835 with other wealthy British businessmen, 'was not the only part of Angas's work for the foundation of South Australia. He lobbied the Colonial Office, subsidized authors and published magazines and pamphlets. . . He gave evidence to the select committee on South Australian affairs in 1841. Despite his passionate faith in self help, he became convinced that the colony would founder unless aided by the British government. His interviews with the Colonial Office, his lecture tours and his wide distribution of literature on South Australia helped to ensure a majority for the parliamentary grant that saved the colony's credit. . . In 1848 Angas decided to go to South Australia, where his German tenants were at last paying their rents and the South Australian Co. was again paying a dividend. He resigned as its chairman and director, and with renewed vigour planned a score of colonial ventures ranging from the export of tallow to drain pipes made by machine. Again he lectured and wrote and lobbied, this time for the Australian colonies' government bill. When it was passed in August 1850 . . . and all his English property was sold he sailed with his wife and youngest son in the "Ascendant" and arrived in Adelaide in January 1851' (Australian Dictionary of Biography). From internal evidence, this rare pamphlet would appear to have been produced early in the second half of 1848. Reference is made to the 3rd Annual Report of the South Australian Mining Company (dated 14 April 1848); obviously sufficient time had elapsed for this to have reached England by ship. At the Annual General Meeting of the South Australian Company on 28 June 1848, Angas tendered 'his resignation of the office of Chairman, and also his seat at the Board of Directors' (Hodder, page 299). As there is only passing reference to the South Australian Company in the pamphlet (merely as the contact address for the secretary of the committee, David McLaren), and Angas heads the (alphabetical) list of six committee-men, his resignation from the SAC would appear to have taken place. This 'Committee, appointed for the Diffusion of Information on the State and Prospects of South Australia', about which we can found no other trace, may be yet another example of Angas indulging his 'lifelong passion for forming societies and joining charitable committees' (ADB). As far as the text of the pamphlet goes, 'The Committee are aware of the anxious desire for information relative to South Australia, . . and shall studiously avoid giving currency to any statements of questionable authority'. These noble sentiments are prefaced by suitable quotes from Dr Thomas Arnold of Rugby, and Dr Robert Vaughan. The closely-printed text goes into great detail about land (regulations for its sale, land sold, land under cultivation); flocks and herds; population; wages and prices of provisions; free passages; imports and exports; soil and climate; and mineral discoveries.

        Das Nibelungen Lied or Lay of the Last Nibelungers.

      Berlin: published by Alexander Duncker, bookseller to His Majesty the King of Prussia,, 1848. Translated into English verse after Professor Carl Lachmann's collated and corrected text by Jonathan Birch. Octavo (218 × 150 mm). Near-contemporary Italian vellum over boards, red morocco label, spine richly gilt in compartments, sides bordered in gilt and with title in gilt to front cover, marbled endpapers. This copy extra-illustrated with a suite of 35 photographic plates, mounted on card and bound in on stubs. Spine label just a little worn at rear joint, a few minor spots, an excellent copy attractively bound and extra-illustrated. First edition in English of the Nibelungenlied, published in Berlin at the behest of Friedrich Wilhelm IV of Prussia; this copy suitably extra-illustrated with plates reproducing the fresco paintings of the Nibelungenlied by Julius Schnorr von Carolsfeld (1794-1872) in the royal palace at Munich. The translator Jonathan Birch (1783–1847), a personal friend of the Prussian king, based his work on the edition of the philologist Karl Lachmann (1793–1851), who had proposed genealogical groups for the entire range of available manuscripts. Birch had moved from England to Prussia but died while the work was still in the press. The great German national epic, the Nibelungenlied had fallen into obscurity after the medieval era and was only rediscovered in 1755. The popularization of the Nibelungenlied over the course of the 19th century reached its apotheosis in Wagner's Ring Cycle. With an original autograph letter from Miss Sophie L. McAlpine, dated 4 January 1913, explaining the circumstances of the book's binding, and a few other pieces of associated manuscript material.
