        The City and Harbour of Sydney from near Vaucluse

      London: Thomas Boys Lith. Published by J. Hogarth, [and] Sydney, Messrs. Woolcott & Clarke, 1852. Tinted lithograph with additional hand-colouring, 315 x 550 mm, on sheet 440 x 680 mm; in good condition, framed. George French Angas (1822-86) was one of the most accomplished artists to live in mid-nineteenth century Australia. After extensive travel throughout Australia, New Zealand and England, he settled in Sydney, and from 1853 to 1860 held the position of secretary to the Australian Museum. Angas painted in the picturesque tradition and provided faithful visual records of "countries with which the people of England are still but only imperfectly acquainted", as he noted in the catalogue to his London Exhibition of 1846.Angas's fine view of Sydney Harbour was taken from the lofty vantage point of Vaucluse. It shows a group of local Aborigines with a dingo in the foreground set amidst a faithful rendering of the local flora including the waratah and banksia, which are named. The sweep of harbour includes a number of colonial landmarks, from Captain Piper's villa at Point Piper and Government House through to Bradley's Head, with the Blue Mountains in the distance. Angas made a number of watercolours of Sydney and it was after one of these that this colour lithograph was made in 1852. When it was issued it was "favourably reviewed in both the Sydney Morning Herald (14 March 1853) and the Freeman's Journal (17 March)..." (Christine Dixon in J. Kerr, The Dictionary of Australian Artists).This lithograph of Sydney Harbour satisfies both the topographical obligation and Angas's own quest for the picturesque - "his ardent admiration for the grandeur and loveliness of nature...", as he described it in one of his books titled Savage Life and Scenes.

        Memoirs of Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds

      London: Office of the National Illustrated Library,, 1852. Illustrated with numerous engravings. 2 volumes, octavo (125 × 183). Bound by Baytun in near-contemporary dark blue half calf, blue cloth sides, twin labels to spines lettered gilt, top edges gilt, marbled endpapers. Wood-engraved frontispieces with tissue guards, vignette half-titles, 116 vignettes in text. Spines darkened and rubbed, joints cracked at spine ends but text block tight, front hinge of Vol. II cracked but holding, tips a little worn, a little light foxing to contents. A very good set. Second edition, and the first thoroughly illustrated one, following Bentley's 1841 first edition, which had only four plates over three volumes. An attractive copy in the original cloth of this important early work on popular delusions of all types, considering the credulous enthusiasm of mankind for phenomena such as alchemy, witchcraft, relics, the Crusades, urban myths, as well as economic events such as the tulip bubble. Still in print, Mackay's book has had a profound influence on economics and sociology, with many modern economists referring to his work when analysing the stock market bubbles of our own age. "Charles Mackay's passionate erudition and urbane, unaffected prose style contributed to make him one of the chief figures in the establishment of Victorian journalism as a dignified profession" (ODNB).

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Weimar, 20. X. 1852. - 4 SS. 4to. "Hochverehrter Herr! Ich habe auf meine unwandelbare Verehrung und Liebe zu Ihnen, im Vertrauen zu Ihrer Zusage, Weimar und seinen Angehörigen zugethan bleiben zu wollen, einen Plan gebaut; vielmehr die Absicht eines mir persönlich unbekannten Kunstfreundes, Drobisch in Leipzig, unterstützen zu müssen geglaubt. Derselbe hat ein kleines Werk von mir, das ich an Professor Lobe dahin schickte, zufällig gesehen und so lieb gewonnen, daß er es der nächsten Todtenfeier Mozarts (5ten December) zu Grunde legen möchte. Bereits hat er dazu bei dem Regißeur der Leibziger Bühne mit Erfolg Schritte gethan. Ich wurde, in Folge davon, mit der Annahme des Manuscripts zur Darstellung - überrascht. Gleichzeitig sollte es an den Collegen H. Forst nach Prag unverzüglich geschickt werden. Auch in München, Salzburg und selbst in Wien hat der unermüdliche, mir wie gesagt, unbekannte Freund empfehlende Einleitungen gemacht. In Wien suchte er zu diesem Zwecke Herrn D. Laube auf, traf ihn aber nicht. Dagegen stimmte er, wie er mir schrieb, die Professoren am Conservatorium günstig dafür. - Ich glaubte deshalb ein Exemplar der kleinen melodramatischen Scene 'Da Ponte, der Dichter u. Freund Mozarts' selbst dort einschicken zu müssen und eventuell - Ihre mächtige bürgende - hier vielleicht einzige - Kunst dabei in Anspruch zu nehmen [.]". - Spuren waag- und senkrechter Mittenfaltung. Am unteren Rand der 1. Seite alte Sammlungsstempel (Graf Victor Wimpffen und La Roche).

Trial of Wikoff, Vannoud, And Cavallari, For a Forced Marriage Between Miss Gamble and One of the Accused. Before the High Court of Genoa, February 9-10, 1852. London: William Shoberl, 1852. 64 pp. Lithograph portrait frontispiece of Wikoff. Octavo (8-1/2" x 5-1/2"). Stab-stitched pamphlet in printed wrappers. Moderate soiling, rubbing to extremities with some wear to spine ends and corners. Light toning to text, foxing to a few laves, internally clean. * Only edition. An account of one of the sensational trials of the early 1850s. Wikoff, or as he called himself, Chevalier Wikoff, was an American impresario, occasional European correspondent for the New York Herald and, possibly, a spy for Lord Palmerston. He was engaged to Jane Catherine Gamble, an English woman. Gamble changed her mind shortly before the wedding and fled to Genoa. Wikoff tracked her down and apparently tricked her into coming along with him to his apartment. Shortly afterwards Gamble filed a complaint of kidnapping that landed Wikoff in an Italian jail for 15 months. He was found guilty in an Italian court and forced to return her letters and "extorted promise of marriage." Ever enterprising, Wikoff responded to the negative publicity with a memoir entitled My Courtship and Its Consequences (1855), which became a best-seller. Copies of The Trial of Wikoff are scarce. OCLC locates 7 worldwide: 2 in the British Library and 5 in North American law libraries (Harvard, Library of Congress, University of Georgia, University of Minnesota, University of Pennsylvania).

        Ham's Five Views of the Gold Fields of Mount Alexander and Ballarat, in the colony of Victoria, Drawn on the spot by D. Tulloch, Engraved and Published by Thomas Ham. Melbourne, 1852

      Melbourne: Thomas Ham, 1852. Oblong folio, with five tinted lithographic plates retaining original tissue guards, each preceded by a page of letterpress commentary; original engraved pictorial wrapper a little worn at extremities but very good, preserved in a cloth folder with gilt titling label. The first illustrations of the Victorian Gold Rush. An excellent copy of the first published pictorial record of the gold rush in Victoria, with five tinted lithographic plates of the diggings at Ballarat and Mount Alexander. Travelling from Scotland, Tulloch arrived in Melbourne in 1848 and was employed as an illustrator and engraver for the publisher and entrepreneur Thomas Ham. In 1851 he was dispatched to the Victorian goldfields to sketch the diggers at work, resulting in this remarkable album that captures much of the feverish industry and excitement of the first year of the digging at Ballarat. Each of the plates is accompanied by a printed description, including exaggerated claims about the abundance of gold and the ease of mining it.Ironically, the publishing firm of Thomas Ham was struck by gold fever and most of the staff, including the printers and their assistants, fled to the diggings to try their luck. Despite this fact, Ham's Five Views of the Gold Fields was the first album of views published to satisfy public curiosity about conditions on the Victorian fields and was followed by similar books by contemporary artists such as Samuel Thomas Gill.The plates depict a variety of scenes including riverside panning and cradling, camp life, and the Commissioner's tent & officers' quarters at Forest Creek. Of particular interest is Tulloch's lively depiction of the great miners meeting held at Ballarat on 15 December 1851 to protest against an increase in the cost of licenses from 30 shillings to three pounds. Dispute surrounding mining licenses continued for several years, culminating in the Eureka stockade of December 1854.The images are considered to be some of Tulloch's best work, with the scenes at the gold fields especially well-suited to the large format. Australian Rare Books notes the book as being the 'first Victorian plate book published in a large format'. Three of the five full page lithographic plates have original hand tinting with added blue to the sky and water. Rare in any condition, this is a lovely copy in the original illustrated wrappers.

Small bindery label also on top left of front end paper, "Bound by Bemrose & Sons, Derby". Originally William Bemrose set up his own printing and bindery business in Derby in 1826-27. This book is custom bound, for M. Cox as was common to do for the wealthy who wished to improve the original cloth binding most books were published in. A nice copy overall and very attractive on the shelf on this first edition first issue in contemporary 3/4 leather binding. Written after The Backwoods of Canada (1836), this is her second Canadian book. "Agnes made a contract with a London publisher, Arthur Hall, Virtue, and Company, for Catharine's children's story Canadian Crusoes: a tale of the Rice Lake plains (1852), in which three young offspring of pioneers heroically survive two years on their own in the unsettled wilderness north of Lake Ontario. Hall and Virtue also published another book aimed at the children's market, Lady Mary and her nurse; or, a peep into the Canadian forest (1856), the text evolving from the sketches Catharine wrote originally for a Canadian magazine, the Maple Leaf (Montreal), in 1853. As she was to comment in a letter of 1896, "My role in writing has ever been for the young. I rarely aspire to any higher style." quoted from DCB on-line. TPL 3316.

Originally published serially from June 5, 1851-April 1, 1852 in the American abolitionist periodical The National Era, Uncle Tom's Cabin is an anti-slavery novel about the human cost of slavery in the American South. Inspired by the increased stringency of the Fugitive Slave Law after the Compromise of 1850, the novel features two African-American slaves trying to preserve their families in spite of their abusive oppression. Tom, the title character, is a religious man and chooses to work within the slavery system to ensure his family's protection. Alternately, the other main character, Eliza Harris, chooses to flee slavery and escape to freedom in Canada. Throughout the text, Stowe preaches her own Christian beliefs as a means to abolishing slavery, encouraging compassion, mercy, and forgiveness as solutions. Published in book form on March 20, 1852, Uncle Tom's Cabin was an instant bestseller, with 300,000 copies sold in the United States and 1.5 million copies sold in Great Britain within the first year.. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good.

        The Dispatches of Field Marshal The Duke of Wellington,

      London, John Murray, , 1852. during his Various Campaigns in India, Denmark, Portugal, Spain, the Low Countries, and France. Compiled from Official and other Authentic Documents by the Late... 8 volumes, octavo (233 × 145 mm). Strictly contemporary full tan "Turkey" morocco by Hayday, red and green morocco labels, low gilt milled bands, compartments elaborately gilt with a panel composed of scrolled tools featuring eagle's heads, centred on a quatrefoil in black, double fillet gilt panel to the boards, dog rose corner tools, enclosing a fine dotted roll in blind, gilt milled edges, marbled edges and endpapers, turn-ins with a blind milled roll, red morocco label of John Wilson, Shirley [Hall, near Sheffield], dated 1852 to the front pastedowns. Mezzotint portrait frontispiece by Burgess after Lawrence to Volume I, general title with engraved arms of Wellington to each volume, 6 contemporary engraved folding maps, 3 of them coloured in outline - uncalled for - in an end-pocket to volume VIII. Some very minor shelf-wear, frontispiece and title page of volume I somewhat browned, but otherwise an truly excellent set. New and Enlarged Edition", much preferred and genuinely uncommon. A great deal of extra material has been added to the coverage of both the Wars in India and Europe, "extracts from the Instructions for the movements of the Army, and from the General Orders, circulated by the Quarter Master General and Adjutant General, in the Peninsula, France, and the Low Countries, have also been added to this edition". A substantial production, this set very little diminished in the binding having lost just a couple of millimetres in the process, remaining a handsome and imposing set, without the doubt one of the best that we have handled. William Hayday (1796?-1872), was one of the foremost binders of his day, renowned for the beauty, but also the practicality of his work; "Hayday had long seen that it was desirable to make printed books open freely and lie flat … he sewed the books all along every sheet, and to remedy the extra thickness that would be caused by sewing with thread, used silk, and to equalise the thickness rounded the fore edges more than was customary. To make the back tight he dispensed with the ordinary backing of paper, and fastened the leather cover down to the back. Still the constant opening of the book disfigured the grain of the leather, and to obviate this he introduced the cross or pin-headed grain, or what is now termed Turkey morocco. Works bound by Hayday became famous, and his name attached to a book raised its value twenty-five per cent" (ODNB).

First edition in the original 20 parts issued in 19 monthly installments (including one double issue), collated with Hatton and Cleaver, with the following exceptions: Part I with incorrect front wrapper and lacking the ads for Norton's Camomile Pills (4 pgs.), contains a superfluous Household Words slip; Part II with a second state Mott slip (H&C call for first state) and lacking "Notice of Removal" slip; Part IV with second state Household Words slip (H&C call for first state); Parts VII and VIII lacking Crochet Cotton slip; Part IX lacking Allsopp's ads (8 pgs.); Part X lacking "New Sporting Newspaper" and Crochet Cotton slip; Part XII with second state Household Words slip (H&C call for third state); Part XIII lacking Household Words slip; Part XV with incorrect rear wrapper, with second state Household Words slip (H&C call for sixth state), lacking "Village Pastor" ad (8 pgs.), with superfluous Clarke Beeton ads (8 pgs.); part XVI lacking "Grace Aguilar's Works" slip (8 pgs.), Part XVIII with incorrect rear wrapper, lacking page 7/8 of "Bleak House Advertiser," with second state Household Words slip (H&C call for fifth state), incorrect sate Mott ad, lacking "People's Edition" slip, lacking "Treasure of the Desert" slip; Part IX/XX with incorrect rear wrapper, includes a superfluous Household Words slip, includes superfluous Clarke Beeton ads (2 pgs.), lacking John Cassells ads (16 pgs.), lacking Samuel Warren slip, lacking Mott slip (2pgs). Each part in the original publisher's light blue cloth wrappers, with the front panels illustrated with a woodcut design by Browne. A very good set, with some wear and minor tears to the extremities, some short closed tears to the edges, minor losses to the spine ends, a few spines light starting at the spine ends, all spine sturdy and intact, light toning to the spines, a few light spots of soiling and creasing, toning and some scattered spotting to the plates, otherwise bright and clean pages. Part XIX/XX with some faint traces of hand coloring to the front wrapper, shallow loss to bottom edge of the rear wrapper, top edge torn with the wrapper begging to roll up. An attractive, unrestored set, scarce in any condition. Housed in a custom teal slipcase lettered in gilt, with matching chemise. Often regarded as one of Dickens' finest novels, Bleak House follows the long-running Court of Chancey case Jarndyce v. Jarndyce, a complicated lawsuit that involves almost every class of English society, and heavily criticizes the moral shortcomings of the British judicial system. With Bleak House, Browne continued his experimental use of dark plates, of which there are ten - a significant increase from the singular dark plates in his preceding two novels Dombey and Son and David Copperfield. Additionally, Browne continues the use of horizontal illustrations in Bleak House, another technique he began with Dombey, with almost half of the illustrations being in this layout. A Haycraft-Queen Cornerstone.. Illus. by Browne, Hablot Knight. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good.

        Memoirs of Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds

      London: Office of the National Illustrated Library,, 1852. Illustrated with numerous engravings. 2 volumes, octavo. Original brown blind-stamped cloth, gilt lettered spines gilt decorated with thistles, roses and shamrocks, yellow endpapers carrying publisher's advertisements, top edges gilt. Wood-engraved frontispieces, vignette half-titles, 116 vignettes in text. Spines rolled, a few nicks to bindings and marks to covers, scattered foxing, but a nice set. Second edition, and the first thoroughly illustrated one, following Bentley's 1841 first edition, which had only four plates over three volumes. An attractive copy in the original cloth of this important early work on popular delusions of all types, considering the credulous enthusiasm of mankind for phenomena such as alchemy, witchcraft, relics, the Crusades, urban myths, as well as economic events such as the tulip bubble. Still in print, Mackay's book has had a profound influence on economics and sociology, with many modern economists referring to his work when analysing the stock market bubbles of our own age. "Charles Mackay's passionate erudition and urbane, unaffected prose style contributed to make him one of the chief figures in the establishment of Victorian journalism as a dignified profession" (ODNB).

        Tiroler Gebirgslandschaft mit einem breiten Flußtal.

      . Aquarell, auf festem bräunlichem Zeichenpapier, links unten bezeichnet "Untere Erzgraben... Ettal", rechts unten signiert und datiert "Leop Rottmann 1852". 29,9:50,3 cm. - Zwei Einrisse im linken Teil der Darstellung sind sauber restauriert und von vorne nicht sichtbar, kleine Restaurierung in der linken unteren Ecke. Farbfrisches Aquarell und typische Arbeit Leopold Rottmanns. Der in der Bezeichnung erwähnte "Erzgraben" ist ein Nebenfluß des Alpbachs, gelegen in Tirol.. Leopold Rottmann, jüngerer Bruder des bekannten Landschaftsmalers Carl Rottmann (1797-1850), ging nach ersten Studien bei dem Landschaftsmaler J.W.Chr. Roux (1775-1831) in Heidelberg 1830 an die Münchner Akademie, um Porträt- und Historienmalerei zu erlernen. Bald jedoch wandte er sich - von H. Heß (1798-1863) und seinem Bruder angeregt - der Landschaftsmalerei zu. Seit 1834 unternahm er wiederholt Studienreisen nach Tirol und ins Salzburger Land, wo zahlreiche Aquarelle entstanden. In den nächsten Jahren wandte er sich vermehrt und so erfolgreich der Lithographie zu, weshalb er 1840 als Lehrer für Lithographie an die Münchner Akademie berufen wurde - zu seinen bekanntesten Schülern zählen sicher Kronprinz Ludwig, der spätere König Ludwig II. von Bayern und Prinzessin Therese von Bayern. Im Auftrag von König Maximilian II. Joseph fertigte er ab 1854 mehrere Aquarellfolgen an, die dessen Jagdstände und Lieblingsplätze im Hochgebirge zeigen, und einen zweiten Zyklus, der dessen im Sommer 1858 durchgeführte Gebirgs-tour von Arenenberg bis Berchtesgaden behandelt.
