1851. The Powers of the Creator Sir John Graham Dalyell London, John vanVoorst, Paternoster Row. 3 Volumes, 4to. Vol I, 1851 (70 plates, one tissue guard missing, one plate monotone), Vol II, 1853 (46 plates, one tissue guard missing), & Vol III, 1858 (29 plates including frontispiece and 2 different plates for plate XI. One plate monotone). Hardcover. 1st Edition. Complete with 145 original plates of which 142 are hand coloured with two monotone and a plain engraving. This wonderful set of books is a first edition of this scholarly and very scarce three volume work by Sir John Graham Dalyell on the evidence for the support of a creationist theory in nature. The volumes are more often found individually, if at all, as they were published separately, but this set for offer here comprises all three volumes complete with all their 145 plates. The plates depicting crustaceans are particularly fine. All volumes are very scarce even individually. Sir John Graham Dalyell(1775-1851) was a Scottish antiquary and naturalist; some of his other more popular works include "Rare and Remarkable Animals of Scotland", but without any doubt the three volumes of "Powers of the Creator" constitute the finest example of his work both in terms of his scholarly approach and for the delicacy and detail of the coloured plates as well as for being extremely rare to come across. The first volume of "The Powers of the Creator" was published in 1851. The second volume in 1853,after the author's death, by his sister Elizabeth Dalyell, and the third volume in 1858. Dalyell was a noted writer on nature as … [Click Below for Full Description]

En 1846, La Seine a fait naufrage sur la côte de la Nouvelle-Calédonie; un navire de secours, l'Arabe, a été envoyé de Sydney, où la plupart de l'équipage a été pris.

Wyatt, M Digby
Day & Sons Lithographers to the Queen, London. First editions: Volume I - 1851; Volume II 1853. Dedicated by permission to His Royal Highness The Prince Albert (who was the motivator for this exhibition). Published in two first edition volumes: VOLUME I in 1851 and VOLUME II in 1853. The cloth covers on both volumes are badly worn on the back panel and the front panel of Volume One is particularly grubby looking as if an ink spill has tried to be cleaned off. The fore-edge of the boards are worn through. The paperblock of both volumes are substantially loose due to the age of the binding glue which has become brittle with age and deteriorated. The board corners are bumped. Volume II has been subject to dampness with indication of page rippling and some staining to the top margin and leaching through onto the pictorial portion of a few of the plates. All plates are present with the exception of PLATE 53 ANDROMEDA which is missing from Volume I. PLATE CXXXII is mis-numbered as 133 although this is an original typographic error. Plates 141; 142; 143 and 144 are out of sequence but this appears to be an original binding error. Each plate illustration is prefaced by a one page, sometimes double sided textual page followed by a blank cover page and then the illustration page. Marbled end papers. Half leather with barreled spine. Gilt titling to the spine still bright and with gilt decoration to the raised bands on the spine. A good candidate for rebinding/recasing.

California]: [Theatre]
San Francisco: Herald Print, 1851. Letterpress broadside, printed on silk, 18 x 6 inches. Minor wear, old folds, mild creases. Very good. An interesting - and likely unique - survival from very early in San Francisco's theater history, printed on silk. This broadside advertises the first California performance of an opera called GUY MANNERING! OR, THE GIPSEY'S PROPHECY! on December 10, 1851. The opera was followed by a "truly Great and Wonderful" performance by the Lee Family, then the comic opera THE INVISIBLE PRINCE, and finally a performance of the "Three Simpletons." Emily Coad performed the role of Lucy Bertram in "Guy Mannering," singing two songs as well, and also had a role in "The Invsible Prince." An appearance by the local firefighting comkpany was also promised: "The Howard Engine Company will visit the theatre in full uniform." The first known theatrical performance in the Gold Rush boomtown of San Francisco was a one-man show staged in a courthouse in June, 1849. Within a couple of years, as the present broadside attests, the city had two competing theaters, one of which was the 2000- seat American Theatre on Sansome Street. This broadside was printed at the offices of the SAN FRANCISCO HERALD newspaper, founded in June, 1850, and known for its strong political stands. Kemble observes that in the fall of 1851 California newspapers "suffered much for the want of printing paper, and [were] often printed on wrapping paper, blue, brown or yellow, as it could be had." Whether this paper shortage accounts for the HERALD's printing of the present broadside on … [Click Below for Full Description]

John Fincham
ont> Whittaker and Co : London, 1851. A very smart first edition copy of this thorough exploration of Naval architecture. Scarce in the original cloth, this work has been written by an expert in the field. Profusely illustrated, with fifty eight plates that demonstrate several examples of ships, and building techniques. Written by the master-shipwright of Her Majesty's Dockyard Portsmouth. John Fincham also wrote works such as 'An Outline of Ship-Building', ' A Treatise on Masting Ships' and 'Directions for Laying Off Ships'. Here Fincham gives a comprehensive look at the history of ship-building and theories of Naval Architecture from as early as the seventeenth century. He discusses this in the context of the importance of maritime power, and in reference to specific battles. Fincham displays how certain architectural and engineering features assisted in various sea battles. He writes on the development of various parts of the boat in a descriptive and technical sense providing information on different materials in great detail. A truly important work in displaying the fast development the British had in their ship-building over a short period of time, assisting them in being a leading force on the water. With the errata. A superior copy in the original cloth, of this important maritime work. Condition: In the publisher's original cloth binding.

Front free endpaper with a ca. 1/2" abrasion, apparently the result of an ill-advised erasure, which has further suffered an undignified later attempt at re-coloring.

First edition, 18 x 13.5cm (8vo), in publisher's beige paper-covered boards w/printed border, title & designs by Doyle to fr. cover, printed borders & central device to rear, a.e.g., coated decorative pale green ep.s, [i-vi], [1] 2-56 pp. w/numerous wood engravings by the Dalziels, Harvey Orrin Smith, Isabel Thompson etc., +frontis & prelim title designs also after Doyle, & 2pp. publ. adverts to rear. Printed by Henry Vizetelly, London. The fr. cover's woodblock spells the location as "Styria," but the prelim titlepage woodblock was altered to read "Stiria." As Osborne (which has the 2nd British ed.) reports, "in 1841 the twelve year old Euphemia (Effie) Chalmers Gray dared Ruskin ... to write a fairy tale for her." Ruskin & Effie were married in 1848, but 7 years later she filed for annulment claiming that Ruskin was unwilling to consummate the marriage--whether or not this was merely a ploy to gain her freedom so she could marry her not-so-secret lover John Everett Millais has long been a topic of discussion (Effie's huge commercialistic influence on Millais's subsequent career has elicited the sarcastic speculation that had Ruskin remained married to her, he would have WRITTEN "Bubbles"). Binding Good (rebacked w/matching beige cloth, corner-tips bumped & worn, boards soiled, & margins of fr. ep.s tidemarked); contents Good (recto of frontis laid to verso of fr. ep., & occas. stains).

Broadside; Great Britain; Child Abuse
1851. One of the Most Appalling Examples of the Sadistic Abuse of a Minor [Broadside]. [Great Britain]. [Child Abuse]. A Copy of Verses, on the Trial & Conviction of Mr. & Mrs. Sloane, for the Cruel Treatment of their (Servant Girl,) Jane Wilbred. [London?: Printed for P.C., 1851]. 9" x 7" verse broadside, untrimmed, mounted on paper. Main text in two columns separated by rules below boldface headline. Light soiling and a few minor creases and tears. * This broadside records one of the most appalling examples of child abuse in English history. Public outrage at this case was shared at all levels of society. The gratuitous, truly unspeakable cruelties that George Sloane, special pleader of the Middle Temple and officer of the Church of England Assurance Institute, and his wife, an ex-dancer at the Italian Opera, inflicted for two years on their servant girl, who was hired from the work-house at age 15, did not go unpunished. But the Sloanes received only a two-year prison sentence. Their mild punishment outraged the public. This event must have inspired several broadsides and related items, but almost none are recorded in the standard sources.
