        A List of Printed Service Books, according to the ancient uses of the Anglican Church

      London: Joseph Masters, 1850 - Following the manuscript tradition, liturgical printing in both the Catholic and Anglican churches frequently employed vellum as well as paper. D.B. Updike writes that economic considerations were also a factor: "As early printed books were nothing more than a mechanical imitation of manuscripts - even in printed missals vellum was often used for the canon of the Mass, since the pages devoted to this were subject to wear by constant handling" (D.B. Updike, "Some Notes on Liturgical Printing," The Dolphin, no. 2 (1935), pp. 208-16). That being the case, it isn't surprising that this rare bibliography should have a vellum issue; yet no other vellum copy has been recorded PRINTED ON VELLUM, apparently the only copy thus. 4to (21.7 x 13.4 cm). 16 leaves. Contemporary gilt-panelled vellum binding. Beautiful copy, with blind stamp of previous owner A.J.V. Radford, and bookseller's tickets of Herbert Reichner, Lathrop C. Harper Inc, and H.P. Kraus.

Some minor extinct worming (confined to the upper margins). Minor browning First Edition Green hardback cloth cover 270mm x 170mm (11" x 7"). 371pp; 24pp + 2 pp ads. Twenty four hand-coloured lithographic plates including 18 double page plates. Additional engraved illustrations within the text. This is the First collected edition of Morton's anatomical works, comprising The Surgical Anatomy of the Perinaeum; the Groin; the Thigh; the Popliteal Region; the Hip Joint; Inguinal Herniae; the Testis and it's Coverings; the Head and Neck; the Axilla; the Bend of the Elbow and the Radial and Ulnar Arteries of the Wrist. These were issued separately between 1838 and 1845. This collected edition was issued after Morton's death. All these works are remarkable, because they are illustrated by his brother Andrew Morton a leading London portrait painter. Arguably they mark the revival of an artistic representation of anatomical details.

Original boards, cloth spine with paper label, rebacked, one corner bent. Light toning, but very good. 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). We are offering Mallet'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's third and fourth reports.

        Map of the State of Texas from the Latest Authorities, by J. H. Young from Mitchell’s Universal Atlas

      Thomas Cowperthwait & Co. 1850 - J. H. Young’s hand-colored map of Texas was the most influential atlas map of the period and the first to widely disseminate Texas’ new state boundaries, as a result of the Compromise. This is the second state of the "new" map of Texas issued by Thomas, Cowperthwait & Co. Inset maps "Northern Texas" and "Map of the Vicinity of Galveston City". Inset table "Population &c. of Texas according to the Census of 1850". Shows the newly resolved boundary of northern Texas at latitude 36°, which marked the end of Texas’ claim to the upper Rio Grande and eastern New Mexico. Details noted such as county towns, post offices, and railroads (existing and in progress). Battle sites of the Mexican-American War are indicated with American flags. Richly annotated with notes describing the railroads, Staked Plain, Rio Grande, Grand Indian Crossing, and the population from the 1850 Census. Significant cartographic document in the early history of Texas. Western edge of the frontier includes a line of U. S. forts with names underscored. Frontier fortresses appear in the western edge of the populated areas, including Ft. Gates, Ft. Croghan and Ft. Inge. An excellent map of the Texas frontier during a period of some of it's greatest expansion. Small bb-size stain (not affecting map image). Barely noticeable sulfide spot and two very small and extremely light marks, neither of which are in the land area. I SELL ONLY AUTHENTIC ANTIQUE MAPS & PRINTS --I DO NOT SELL REPRODUCTIONS.

        Australian Geography, with the Shores of the Pacific

      Sydney,: J. Moore, George Street, 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.Ferguson, 5460.

        "Strange birds seen off Boulogne"

      n.p., [c. 1850]. Image approx. 4 x 4-1/2 inches. Pen and ink and watercolor on paper, initialled "JL", mounted in larger sheet of paper, matted. . John Leech (1817-1864) was one of the most prolific and successful of the English artists and caricaturists of the mid 19th century. "His humour was like his talent, gentle, warm-hearted and positive, his world, the ups and downs of middle class life, the sports of the squirearchy, and the peccadilloes of army officers and undergraduates" (Houfe). The conventions of social humor he established with his first contributions to the newly founded Punch, in 1841, lasted into the 1920s, but his greatest fame came through his book illustrations, particularly those for Surtees's sporting novels. "Extravagantly praised by Ruskin, Leech's often careless but never crude drawings have survived in charm and humour to give us a refreshing glimpse of mid-Victorian society." (Houfe)
