        Journal of the Ethnological Society of London. Vol. III. 1854

      W. Watts, London 1854 - Octavo, 3 plates, paper a little toned, mostly unopened; a very good copy in the original brown cloth blind-stamped boards, lettered in gilt to spine, some wear especially at extremities and joints, a few chips, bookplate for the Hispanic Society of America. With a plate of Sydney rock carvings. A very good copy of this volume from the Ethnological Society of London, notably including an essay by William Augustus Miles on the Aborigines of Sydney, with an accompanying plate depicting some rock carvings. Miles (1798-1851) is rumoured to have been an unacknowledged son of George IV, as the unexpected favour of William IV might be thought to imply. He served for several years as a controversial police commissioner in Sydney, during which time he also took up the study of the Australian Aborigines. His long essay here "on Demigods and Daemonia" is a very early paper on religion, artefacts and language of the Australians, with notes from sources like the First Fleet accounts, Leichhardt, and Lort Stokes of the Beagle. The article includes quite a lot of enthusiastic commentary on the ancient religions of Europe and their apparent relation to Australia, but also has a good deal of first hand comment based on Miles' acquaintance with "Maoroo", of the Botany Bay tribe. Other interesting papers include: the Reverend J. Inglis, 'A missionary tour in the New Hebrides', presented to Sir George Grey (pp. 53-86); Doctor Arthur Saunders Thomson, an army surgeon stationed in Auckland with the 58th Regiment, 'Observations on the Stature, Weight, Magnitude of chest, and physical strength of the New Zealand race of men', (pp. 123-32); and T.R. Heywood Thomson, 'On a reported infecundity of the "Gins" or Aboriginal females of New Holland, to procreate with a native male after having borne half-caste children to European or White', (pp. 243-47).

He studied theology in Bonn und Tübingen, and later worked as a chaplain and teacher in Trier. In 1841-43 he furthered his studies in Vienna, where he was a student of Anton Günther (1783-1863). In 1844 he earned his doctorate of theology at Breslau, and in 1845 became a professor of philosophy at the Catholic faculty of theology at the University of Bonn. Knoodt was an ardent follower of the philosophical teachings of Anton Günther, and several years after Günther's death, he published the biographical Anton Günther. Eine Biographie (1881, 2 volumes). This work has been praised as an important source of Catholic church history. Another noted work of Knoodt's was Günther und Clemens; Offene Briefe (Günther and Franz Jakob Clemens; Open Letters). Both publications were placed on the Index Librorum Prohibitorum (List of Prohibited Books) by the Roman Catholic Church." (source: Wikipedia)

        The Life of a Fireman. The race. - "Jump her boys, jump her!"

      Nathaniel Currier, New York 1854 - A dramatic fire-fighting scene: a fire-fighting team race towards a fire-glow in the background, urged on by their leader, they haul a wheeled water tank and pumper. Louis Maurer was born in Germany, but after a short apprenticeship he emigrated to America. He arrived in New York in August 1851, and initially worked for T. W. Strong at 98 Nassau Street. After meeting Charles Currier, he visited his brother Nathaniel and showed him some of his work. Nathaniel was impressed but directed him to Ives who interviewed all new employees. He was immediately hired and put to work in the basement of 152 Nassau Street where he worked for eight years before leaving, initially because he was offered more money by a rival, but later to set up as a lithographic printer in his own right. This is one of a number of tableaux constituting The Life of the Fireman . It is particularly popular because it includes a view of the cupola and bell tower on City Hall, which later burned down, and because it demonstrates, as the whole series does, the valiant efforts of a volunteer FIre Department, of which Currier was a proud member. Conningham 3519; Gale 3787. Lithograph, coloured by hand, by and after Louis Maurer. (Expert repairs to marginal tears, one just touching the image area).

      London: W. S. Orr, 1854. <p>Owen, Richard (1804-92). The principal forms of the skeleton. Parts 1-4 (complete). 161-304pp. Text illustrations. London: W. S. Orr & Co., [1854]. 204 x 140 mm. Original printed wrappers, a little chipped, spine of part 4 worn away. Very good set. </p><p>First Edition, in the Rare Original Parts. Published as part of William S. Orr&#39;s Circle of the Sciences, Owen&#39;s Principal Forms of the Skeleton was a popular rendition of his On the Archetype and Homologies of the Vertebrate Skeleton (1849), the work in which he laid out his system of comparative osteology and developed his concept of the vertebrate archetype. "The vertebrate archetype (from the Greek arkhe, &#39;original,&#39; and tupos, &#39;imprinted image&#39;) is one of the most fascinating constructs of what has been called the &#39;morphological period&#39; in the history of biology (approximately 1800-1860). It represented the fullest expression of a belief in the fundamental relatedness, if not of all organisms, at least of all animals with endoskeletons. Moreover, as Darwin scholars have long recognized, the vertebrate archetype provided a direct stepping-stone to the notion of evolutionary ancestors" (Rupke, "Richard Owen&#39;s vertebrate archetype," 231). The Principal Forms of the Skeleton was issued in both parts and in book form, and went through at least a dozen English and American editions. Rupke, "Richard Owen&#39;s vertebrate archetype," Isis 84 (1993): 231-251; Richard Owen, Victorian Naturalist (1994), pp. 161-170.</p>

        Prize for Lithography at the Melbourne Exhibition, 1854

      London: Joseph S. Wyon, 1854. Bronze medal, 64 mm., edge impressed &#39;Prize Medal 239 E Gilks Lithography&#39;, good extremely fine; with tan morocco case of issue, the case a little rubbed. A beautiful rarity: the 1854 prize medal for lithography at the first Melbourne Exhibition, awarded to the important colonial lithographer Edward Gilks, in its original case of issue. Roger Butler suggests that Gilks only first became active in Australia around 1853, and as this medal was awarded in the following year, it obviously dates from the very beginning of his career. Gilks (c. 1822-1886), was one of the more important Australian lithographers, perhaps best known for his separately issued images such as the &#39;Commissioner&#39;s Camp, Castlemaine, in 1852 (Mount Alexander)&#39; (see Roger Butler, Printed 1801-1901, p. 154), or his portraits of Burke and Wills. Gilks also contributed to famous colonial illustrated works such as the Melbourne Album published by Charles Troedel in 1863-4, as well as being one of the team assembled for the wonderful, and undervalued, Prodromus of Frederick McCoy. The principles of lithography were first discovered in the last years of the eighteenth century, but the practice was not introduced to Australia until the efforts of Governor Sir Thomas Brisbane, who acquired a press as part of his equipping of the Parramatta observatory in 1822. The format was widely adopted, and lithography became the mainstay of the burgeoning interest in Australian views and portraits. Little surprise, then, that a prize medal for lithography was awarded at the 1854 Exhibition, which was held in conjunction with the French Exposition Universelle of 1855. An impressive series of artists were awarded prizes in Melbourne, but this may have been the only prize for lithography, and may in fact be the only such medal for any type of printed works (a quick census of fellow nominees suggests most of the other prizes were for painters and sculptors, although there was also, for example, a photography prize, given to Robert McClelland). This is an attractive medal in its own right, with the Melbourne Exhibition Building to the obverse, and Brittania being given the fruits of the harvest to the reverse (with the Southern Cross visible in the background).

        Narrative of a Voyage to the Northwest Coast of America . in the years 1811, 1812, 1813 and 1814. Or the first American settlement on the Pacific

      New York: Redfield, 1854. Octavo, with three engraved plates, author&#39;s inscription to head of title-page, recent bookplate to front pastedown; a good copy in publishers green cloth, skilfully rebacked with most of the original spine laid down, preserved in a folding cloth case. First English translation, signed and inscribed by the author, of Gabriel Franchère&#39;s account of Astoria on the mouth of the Columbia River. While the book chiefly recounts his extraordinary overland journey of five months through the Rocky Mountains to the Red River Settlement (later Winnipeg) and thence to Montreal, it is also well-regarded for the author&#39;s account of his early and important visits to Hawaii and Tahiti en route to the northwest Pacific. Franchère&#39;s narrative was first published in Montreal some years previously; this edition was prepared for the American public by the clergyman and sometime novelist Jebediah Vincent Huntington who patriotically proclaims the book as &#39;the only account by an eye-witness and a participator in the enterprise, of the first attempt to form a settlement on the Pacific under the stars and stripes.&#39; Franchère was a member of the party sent out by John Jacob Astor on the vessel Tonquin to found a fur trading post at Astoria, at the mouth of the Columbia River. The account of his three year stay, his inland travels, the transfer of Astor&#39;s company to the North West Fur Company of Canada in 1813 and subsequent actions of the British, forms a detailed and important document in Canadian history. Additionally, the outbound journey of the Tonquin is included, in which Franchère gives a good account of the customs and political situation of the Hawaiian islands as well as a biography of Kamehameha I. The work is referred to as in the text as the "second edition", which is slightly misleading: the earlier edition referred to is actually the original French language edition published in Montreal in 1820.

        Fregatten Eugenies Resa Omkring Jorden åren 1851-1853, under befäl af C. A. Virgin

      Stockholm: Adolf Bonnier, 1854. Two volumes in one, octavo, with three folding tinted maps, and 20 lithographs (18 coloured) and numerous woodcuts; an extremely good copy in the original brown cloth, gilt. Royal Swedish circumnavigation. First edition: the official account of the voyage of the Eugenie, the first Swedish circumnavigation, with particularly good accounts of the expedition&#39;s stops in Honolulu, Tahiti, San Francisco, Sydney and Manila, and shorter notices on various South American ports, the Galapagos, Hong Kong, Singapore and the Cape of Good Hope. The plates include four of Tahiti, three of Hawaii, two of Manila and a view of Mission Dolores, San Francisco. These coloured lithographs are both naïve and attractive. The book was also published in German in 1856, but no edition in English appeared until a translation of the important Hawaiian portion of the narrative by Meiric Dutton was issued in 1954. Forbes has a long article on the important narrative of the Honolulu visit which includes a good account of the town and harbour, and numerous social engagements including a meeting with the king and Saturday horseracing, as well as a trip into the countryside including a visit to the Pali. &#39;Skogman&#39;s little known narrative tells of the Royal Swedish voyage&hellip; [The] work is much sought after because of its fine colour plates. In the appendices is a section on whaling in the Pacific Ocean&hellip;&#39; (Hill). Despite the substantial Australian section, the book is not recorded by Ferguson. Peter Howard, the Berkeley bookseller, has pointed out that &#39;the Voyages of the Frigate Eugenie in some way paralleled the trips of the Adventurer. They had only one port stop in common, however - Port Famine at the tip of South America. Wherein lies one of the most baffling of Lepidoptera problems. &#39;The collecting habits of scientists on the Eugenie in two generalized pages record the fact that from Hawaii was brought home what proved to be Colias Sponteni. The Adventurer gathered in South America the same blue butterfly, Colias Imperialis. &#39;Between the two ships, ten specimens were collected. No other sighting in South America of Colias Imperialis [Sponteni] has ever been recorded. The morphology of Colias Imperialis is not suitable to southern South America. One private scholar has spent over $50,000 in pursuit of a scientific solution to the problem. I am indebted to the University of California at Davis scientist Arthur Shapiro for every bit of this knowledge. He has swept the plains of South America for decades, looking for a single Colias Imperialis. The number of specimens gathered by the Adventurer is proof that the bug bred there, he insists&hellip;&#39;.

        Seat of War on the Danube. Official Map.

      1854 - London: Wyld, 1854. Lithographic map with original colour. 335 x 910mm, folded into brown cloth covers with publisher's label. The first hosilities of the Crimean War were when the Russians occupied the Principalities of Moldavia and Wallachia and massed their forces at the Danube, facing the Ottomans on the opposite shore. An Ottoman ultimatum to withdraw was ignored by the Russians, so the Turks crossed the river forcing the Russians back slightly before winter ended the campaign season. This map of The Danube Region was published in February 1854, during the winter lull; in the Spring the Russians counter-attacked, crossing the Danube, but, in the face of British, French & Austrian support for the Turks, withdrew in September. Focus of the war then moved to the Crimea itself.

      Tabriz: Dar al-Tabae, 1854. Tabriz: Dar al-Tabae, 1854. <p>Mirza Mohammad-Vali Hakimbashi. [In Arabic script] Cheragh haa rewshenaaa der asewl pezeshekea [Illumination of the fundamentals of medicine]. Lithographed book. 194, 108, 234, [16]pp., irregularly numbered. 56 plates after Vesalius, Scarpa, Fabrici and others. Tabriz: Dar al-Tabae [State Printing House], 1271 A.H. [1854 A.D.]. 330 x 205 mm. Full morocco, vellum onlays ca. 1854, Persian style binding presumably bound in Tabriz. Occasional light wear and staining but a fine copy.</p><p>First Edition, extremely rare, of the first book to introduce Western anatomical illustration into Persian culture. During the 19th century, under the rule of the Qajar dynasty, Persia (now Iran) increased its contacts with European governments, while at the same time enjoying periods of relative political stability and a growing sense of nationalism. In the arena of public health and medical education, these influences resulted in &#147;a mounting sense of responsibility on the part of the Government with regard to its citizenry. Moreover, an emerging sense of national &#145;shame&#146; [aberou] in the face of staggering epidemics, together with a growing need to counter Western imperial interventions resulted in stronger stimuli for the promotion of an organized policy of public health. Hence, Iran&#146;s social, military, economic and mercantile interests became stronger advocates of sanitary reform&#148; (Afkhami, p. 122). </p><p>In 1851, at the urging of Prime Minister Mirza Taqi Khan Amir Kabir, Persia established its first modern institution of higher learning, the Dar al-Fonun (now the University of Tehran), which included a medical school for the training of army physicians. &#147;Whereas Iranian Hakims of the mid-19th century could, in hindsight, have claimed to rival their European counterparts in therapeutics, a superior anatomical knowledge on the part of Western surgeons made them better caregivers on battlefields. Consequently, clinical instruction became a cornerstone of the Dar al-Fonun and like the academies of Europe, Amir Kabir also founded a &#145;Government Hospital&#146; in January 1850 for the purpose of instructing medical students&#148; (Afkhami, p. 123). </p><p>As part of this effort to modernize medical education in Persia, medical textbooks such as Mirza Mohammad-Vali&#146;s Illumination of the Fundamentals of Medicine were written or translated by Persian authors and printed by lithography for publication by the Dar al-Fonun or the Dar al-Tabae, the state printing house established in the 1840s. Mirza Mohammad-Vali, who had been named chief physician of the Persian army in 1852, was also supervisor of the physicians at the Government Hospital and most likely taught at the Dar al-Fonun. Mirza Mohammad&#146;s dependence on Western sources in this early period of modern Persian medical education is evident in his book&#146;s numerous anatomical illustrations, adapted from Vesalius, Scarpa, Fabrici and other European authors.</p><p>The Qajar period also saw the introduction of the lithographic press, the first successful method for the mass production of books in Persia. Several attempts had been made to establish letterpress printing in Persia beginning in the 17th century, but casting type in Arabic script raised technical problems beyond those faced by typographers creating Roman typefaces, and it was not until the 1820s, when the first lithographic printing press began operating in Tabriz, that books, newspapers and other printed material began to be manufactured in Persia on a large scale. &#147;By the late 1840s, there were already at least six lithographic printing houses at work in Tehran, and dozens of books were published. From this time on, one can speak of regular lithographic book printing in Persia. The reasons for the success of the lithographic method of printing are obvious and well-known: simpler and cheaper equipment in comparison to that required for the typographic printing, availability of a large number of professional copyists, and the traditional culture of calligraphy. Although considerably less expensive than manuscripts, lithographed books retained the usual format of the handwritten codex in a sturdy binding . . . In the latter part of the 1840s, the State Printing House (dar al-taba a-ye dowlati) began its work; and was operative until the end of the first decade of the 20th century. After the opening of the Dar al-fonun (the first modern polytechnic on European lines in Persia) in 1851, a lithographic press was established within it for printing teaching aids. Activities of these two printing houses were of some significance for the cultural and scientific life of Persia, since they published books on new subjects: manuals on exact and natural sciences, both translated and original, and works on history and geography&#148; (Shcheglova). </p><p>This book is extremely rare.

        The Miscellaneous Prose Works of Sir Walter Scott, Bart

      Edinburgh - Adam and Charles Black, 1854. Edinburgh - Adam and Charles Black, 1854 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A collection of the literary biographies, letters and essays by Sir Walter Scott. Containing The Life of John Dryden, Memoirs of Jonathan Swift, Provincial Antiquities of Scotland and Reliques of Robert Burns. With vignette titles to each new section. Much of Scott&#39;s autograph work shows an almost stream-of-consciousness approach to writing. He included little in the way of punctuation in his drafts, leaving such details to the printers to supply. After being essentially unstudied for many decades, a small revival of interest in Scott&#39;s work began in the 1970s and 1980s. Postmodern tastes favoured discontinuous narratives and the introduction of the &#39;first person&#39;, yet they were more favourable to Scott&#39;s work than Modernist tastes. Scott is now seen as an important innovator and a key figure in the development of Scottish and world literature. Condition: In a calf binding. Externally sound, with some light rubbing and some wear to the spine and extremities. Joints starting, but firm. Internally, firmly bound. Bookplate dated 1861 to front pastedown. Pages are generally bright, with just some scattered light spotting. Overall: VERY GOOD..
