        Album of Woodblock Prints of Actors

      (circa1850). - A beautiful Japanese colour woodblock concertina album of actors. 28 leaves featuring 16 full page woodblocks, 5 diptychs and 2 leaves with 2 images on each. 18.2 x 12.5cm. Some occasional insect damage and joins at fore edges professionally repaired with wheat starch paste. A very attractive album. All woodblocks except one are by Hirosada which is by Hasegawa Sadanobu. Utagawa Hirosada, or Gosotei Hirosada as he was also known, was an exceptional printmaker active in the period 1826 - 1863 in Osaka. He is believed to have died in 1865. Fans of kabuki eagerly sought his prints which, in some cases, as demonstrated in this album include the names of the actors. On others, due to the restrictions placed on actors by the authorities at the time, the actors remained unnamed. This album features images from the story Hakkenden (The Tale of the Eight Dogs) while others are from Chukoden (Tales of Loyalty and Filial Piety, or Biographies of Respectful Loyal Men). A most desirable album the colours are bright and strong with many striking compositions. Each actor is portrayed in three quarter profile a style which Hirosada was well known for. This album was almost certainly put together by a keen 19th century theatre fan who would have enjoyed the leafing through the images of their favourite stars of the Japanese stage much as any film star fan might do today.

        The Present State of Moral Principle in the Supreme Government of the British Colonial Empire... Not Published

      London: Printed by G. Barclay, 1850. Slim octavo, 45 pp., very good in recent tan half calf, marbled boards. Gawler on the colonies and his reputation: "not published" Very rare privately published work by the former Governor of South Australia, and the last serious effort he made to rehabilitate his reputation in his vicious quarrels with his successor, George Grey. Gawler, who had been Governor of South Australia from 1838-41, had returned to London with his reputation in tatters, in no small part due to the energetic self-promotion of Governor Grey. Gawler had petitioned hard to have his efforts recognised, but was trumped by Grey at every turn, and by the late 1840s had all but given up any public role. It is interesting, therefore, that in 1850 he wrote the present work, 'a petition to the Queen seeking redress for the injustices done to him by successive secretaries of state. He accused George Grey of dishonesty and claimed that through his own efforts South Australia was 'the only cheap and brilliantly successful new colony in modern history'. On 11 July 1850 he was informed that Earl Grey had laid the petition before the Queen 'but could not advise her Majesty to give any orders on the subject' (ADB). Gawler's publication is understandably rare. Ferguson originally found only a copy in the then Public Library of South Australia, and another has since been noted in the National Library.

"The monumental fountain was designed by the court architect, Johann Bernhard Fischer von Erlach and constructed from 1729 to 1732 by his son, Joseph Emanuel.

Original boards, cloth spine with paper label, rebacked, one corner bent. Light toning, but very good. </p><p>First Separate Editions. Mallet, an Irish engineer and inventor, was a pioneering researcher on earthquakes, and his four reports on earthquakes, published in the journals of the British Association for the Advancement of Science, represent the first scientific work on the subject. Mallet coined the term "seismology" to describe the scientific study of earthquakes, and was also responsible for the terms "epicenter," "seismic focus" (the point at which an earthquake originates), "angle of emergence," "isoseismal line" (contour or line on a map bounding points of equal intensity for a particular earthquake), and "meizoseismal area" (area of maximum earthquake damage). "He produced an experimental seismograph in 1846. Important elements of his model, which was never actually used, were incorporated in the seismograph that Luigi Palmieri made in 1855. Between 1850 and 1861 Mallet set off explosions in different locations to determine the rate of travel of seismic waves in sand (825 feet per second), solid granite (1,665 feet per second) and quartzite (1,162 feet per second). According to A. Sieberg (1924), Mallet should be considered the founder of the physics of earthquakes. . . . Mallet presented his most important seismic results in four Report[s] to the British Association (1850, 1851, 1852-54, 1858) and in four editions of the Admiralty Manual of Scientific Enquiry (1849, 1851, 1859, 1871). Between them, they contain an extensive catalog-which he prepared and debated with his son, John W. Mallet-of 6,831 earthquakes reported between 1606 B.C. and A.D. 1858 and his seismic map of the world" (Dictionary of Scientific Biography). </p><p>We are offering Mallet&#39;s copies of his first, second and third reports, with his corrections and emendations. Accompanying these is the Earthquake Catalogue of the British Association, which incorporates Mallet&#39;s third and fourth reports. </p>

        The Present State of Moral Principle in the Supreme Government of the British Colonial Empire? Not Published

      Printed by G. Barclay, London 1850 - Slim octavo, 45 pp., very good in recent tan half calf, marbled boards.

Gawler, who had been Governor of South Australia from 1838-41, had returned to London with his reputation in tatters, in no small part due to the energetic self-promotion of Governor Grey.

        Album containing 68 original portrait studies of trades and types

      India, 1850. Fine album of costumes of India. N.d. [ca. 1850]. India- In 4to (270 mm x 200 mm; drawings approximately 105 mm x 75 mm). 68 gouache on mica drawings. Finely bound in brownish morocco in the 19th century by P. D. Colnaghi, boards heavily tooled, gilt frame, interlacing and arabesque patterns, spine with discrete raised bands, also gilt in the same fashion. Some drawing removed, some loose, else fine.An attractive collection of mostly full-body portrait studies of Indian trades, costumes and types of the mid 19th century. Each drawing, clearly made by an Indian hand, is captioned in English, with the description of the trade of the person portrayed [i.e., "carpenter", "wife of the farmer", "cow keeper" and administrative figures, in full attire].The detail the drawings show provide us with a valuable iconographic rendering of real costumes in India, without the input of a European aesthetical value, usually seen in plate books of the period. Most likely the album was requested by a British soldier -a higher rank officer would have afforded a more lavish production or skilled artist- or officer.

        Australian Geography, with the Shores of the Pacific And those of the Indian Ocean?

      J. Moore, George Street, Sydney 1850 - Octavo, folding frontispiece map, lower margin of title-page a little marked, light scattered foxing, a good copy in original attractive patterned cloth, joints repaired. Scarce first edition of a pioneering Australian geography textbook, inscribed by the author Sir Thomas Mitchell, renowned explorer and Surveyor-General of New South Wales. The fine world map is by the Sydney engraver John Carmichael. The book was published in Sydney by the prominent bookseller Jeremiah Moore and was specifically designed for use in New South Wales schools. This work privileges Australia's location relative to Asia and the Pacific; indeed the ADB notes of Mitchell's textbook: 'this work must have been one of the first to place Australia in the centre of the world'. Printed by Robert Barr of York Street, the work was published by Jeremiah Moore, a prosperous Sydney bookseller and stationer active between 1849-1896. Mitchell's textbook features a locally printed frontispiece world map bearing the details of the engraver, John Carmichael of Kent Street, North Sydney. Moore published several maps during his lifetime and clearly did a good trade in this regard. A printed slip tipped to the half-title of this volume directs readers to Jones' map of New South Wales and Victoria, to be had from the George Street bookstore.

        Album Artistique de la Reine Hortense. Livre D'Art de la Reine Hortense. Une Visite a Augsburg, Esquisse Biographique. Lettres, Dessins, et Musique

      Paris: Typographie Plon Freres, Heugel & Cie. Paris: Typographie Plon Freres, Heugel & Cie.. Half Morocco. Very Good Minus. Circa 1850 to1860. Oblong, 27.5 by 38 cm, or 10.5 by 15 inches. 23, [67] pp. Hortense was the step-daughter of Napoleon (she was the daughter of Josephine). She was married off to Napoleon's brother, Louis, who was made the king of Holland during the years 1806 to 1810.Significantly for this particular production, Hortense was the mother of Louis Napoleon, also known as Napoleon III, who at the time this opulent work was published, was the ruler of France, which thus explains the opulent commemoration of her here, as evident in the use of gold in its printing! Hortense was, in fact, of an artistic bent, and so contained herein are examples of her painting and musical compositions. There are six plates engraved by F. Sorrieu after paintings by Hortense and 24 pages of musical score by her (lyrics by the Comte de la Garde). Includes letters written by Hortense and a biography by Hippolyte Prevost. The gorgeous chromolithographs, seven in all, were done by Lemercier.Leather is rubbed and scuffed. Foxing, heavy in a few places, generally because of the card or paper.

        Clipped Signature and Inscription

      1850 - Eminent British chess player of the mid-19th century considered one of the greatest of all time. He was the very first Grand Master and the first President of the prestigious Clifton Chess Club. Astonishingly, his career preceded the use of the time clock, and it was reported that he would take up to 2 1/2 hours for a single move. In the Grand Master Tournament of 1851, when a 20-minute-per-turn time limit was adopted (the standard that is used today), Williams won every match he played against the best players of Europe. Bobby Fischer, in an interview with Time Magazine, credited Williams' use of dynamic openings as the biggest influence on his career. Williams died of Cholera at the age 44. 1.75 x 3 inches, no place, no date, circa 1850. Rare full signature removed from the dedication page of a book which he signed to fellow chess player William G. Stearns, in full: "Elijah Williams to his friend William G. Stearns." Evenly toned and boldly written in iron gall brown ink. Tiny damp-stain on the left edge, far from the inscription. Very good(-) condition.

        Die Berliner Märztage. Vom militairischen Standpunkte aus geschildert. Zweite Auflage. VI, 122 S. Mit mehrf. gefalt. teilkolor. lithogr. Plan. Pappbd d. Z. (Kanten berieben) mit handschr. Rückenschild.

      Berlin, E. S. Mittler und Sohn, 1850.. . Halbamtlicher Bericht des preußischen Obersten und Militärschriftstellers über die Berliner Vorgänge im Jahr 1848, jetzt mit zusätzlichem Vorwort und dem häufig fehlenden Plan, der die militärische Situation und die Barrikaden am 10. März darstellt. Solide Darstellung, die auch in der Wertung weit über das rein Militärische hinausgeht. Trotz erklärter Parteilichkeit und der Bemerkung: "Leider hat die Regierung nicht gesiegt, oder vielmehr den von den Truppen errungenen Sieg aus der Hand gegeben" doch eine fair-sachliche und kaum gehässige Darstellung. Holzmann-B. schreibt das Werk dem Grafen Adolf Heinrich von Arnim-Boitzenburg zu, der nach den Unruhen für 10 Tage statt des verhaßten vormärzlichen Ministeriums ein aus liberalen Adligen bestehendes Übergangskabinett leitete, das dann dem bürgerlichen Ministerium Camphausen wich. Arnim-Boitzenburg hatte jedoch 1850 nur "Bemerkungen" verfaßt. - Friedlaender 113. ADB XXXII 742. Bibl. d. Preuß. Generalstabes S. 478.
