        Darton's Children's Toy Books, Printed in Oil Colours, and Warranted to Clean with Water, without Injury: or, on cloth, as Indestructible Books, One Shilling Each. Stories of Wild Animals. By the author of "Chickseed without Chickweed"

Other animals include the lion, tiger, bear (illustration of Polar Bear), elephant, fox, zebra, and monkey. Advertising copy of the time for these "toy books" boasts, "the superiority of the greater number of these juvenile books consist in their being printed in oil colours; so that children can wash them, and the colours will not come off. The colouring is uniform, bright, and most attractive. Another great feature is, that although they are cheerful and amusing, they are also rational, and the pictures free from coarseness and the text from vulgarity". & & The author of 'Chick-seed without Chickweed' was Mary Elizabeth Southwell Leathley (1818 - 1899) who was an Irish-born prolific writer of fiction, poetry, and religious stories for children who published her first book at 16. Her most popular book was 'Chick-seed without chickweed; being very easy and entertaining lessons for little children' [ca. 1845] which reportedly sold almost 500,000 copies.& & 8vo, (10pp), not paginated. Slightly dusty, some dark stain has migrated from back to front, but affects only the foredge, with some staining in text not affecting the color illustrations. Not in OCLC or Trove.

        A vocabulary of the English and Malay languages... Considerably enlarged

      An early Malay vocabulary published in Singapore. 1854. Singapore. Mission Press. In 8vo. x + 68 + 99. Old quarter calf, with original covers bound in. Stamp to title, slightly browned. Included in this nineteenth century work on the Malay-English vocabulary is the Bugis language, with an introductory chapter on the alphabets, vowels and consonants used in both the native languages. It includes "for the convenience of seafaring men, nautical words, or such terms as are used in country vessels manned by a Malay or Javanese crew". In 1899, Sweettenham published another vocabulary, which is greatly based upon this one. Keasberry (1811 - 1875) was an independent Protestant missionary born in India; he arrived in Singapore in 1837, and is one of the earliest Protestant missionaries to do so. His missionary work was dedicated to evangelizing the Malay, and becomes important in the field of education and printing, having run a Malay vocational school in conjunction with the Mission Press.

The subsequent history of their difficulties with the citizens of the vicinity is well known. The excitement and troubles constantly increased until 1844, when the two brothers, "Prophet Joseph and Patriarch Hyrum," Smith were arrested and confined in the county jail at Carthage, where they were murdered by a mob on the 27th day of June of that year. In the fall of 1845, the church treated for its safety by promising to leave the State, which it accordingly did in the following winter and spring of 1846." Not in Flake/Draper. A nice pocket map of Illinois.

        Palaeontological Map (British Islands)

      Edinburgh: William Blackwood & Sons, 1854. unbound. Set of 2 maps. Color lithograph. Images measure 20 3/4 x 24 1/4" each. This two-part color-coded map describes the geology and fossil record of the British Isles. Intended as a scientific tool, the map is robustly labeled with notes, tables, and illustrations. The colors attribute particular rock materials to periods in earth's history according to a key at the bottom center of the lower map. The upper map illustrates fossil formations of paleozoic fishes and secondary reptiles, drawn onto small rocks arranged in decorative piles. At the center, below the title, are drawings of mammalian skulls. On the lower map, diagrams to the left and right of the key show ammonites--extinct invertebrate molluscs--belonging to the upper secondary (left) and lower secondary (right) layers of sedimentary deposits. The map was originally part of Johnston's "Physical Atlas of Natural Phenomena." It is in excellent condition. A.K. Johnston (1804-1871) was a Scottish geographer and Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society. Partnered with his brother William, Johnston maintained a prolific map publishing firm throughout the 19th century. Their output ranged from globes to atlases and wall maps. This map, at once beautiful and informative, offers a fascinating alternative glimpse at the British Isles.

        Little Dorrit

      London: Bradbury & Evans. 1st Edition. Hardcover. FIRST EDITION in book form, a beautiful copy with noted provenance. "Little Dorrit, the saddest of all [Dickens's] novels and also, according to Shaw, 'a more seditious book than Das Kapital' (Shaw on Dickens, 51), brings together scathing criticism of the country's governing institutions (here represented by the all-powerful and all-pervading 'Circumlocution Office'), a vivid portrayal in the story of Mrs Clennam of the harshly Calvinistic version of Christianity that was so strong in Victorian culture, and a depiction of the public greed and gullibility that produces the frenzy of speculation associated with the activity of the swindling financier Mr Merdle, together with Dickens's deeper personal preoccupations about his childhood sufferings and his father's shaming imprisonment in the Marshalsea. Dickens's attack on the inefficiency and ineptitude of the aristocratic management of the Royal Literary Fund and his repeated but vain attempts, made with Forster and others, to reform it (1854-8) were another manifestation of his fierce exasperation at this time with the state of contemporary public life" (Dictionary of National Biography). "Little Dorrit stands between Bleak House and Our Mutual Friend as the second of Dickens' three great panoramic novels. Each of these novels presents a broad picture of all levels of society and their interactions... But Little Dorrit in many ways goes beyond its predecessors in its analysis of the conditions of life of commercial and urban man, and in the symbolic unity of its conception" (Miller, Charles Dickens: The World of his Novels). First issue, with the required points (three line errata on page xiv, "William" for "Frederick" on page 317 line 27, B2 instead of BB2 on pp. 371; "Rigaud" for "Blandois" on pp. 469ff). Provenance: From the collection of Leonard Daneham Cunliffe, former Deputy Governor of the Bank of England and one of Britain's most distinguished collectors. London: Bradbury & Evans, 1857. Complete with engraved title, etched frontispiece, and 38 plates by Phiz. Octavo, contemporary full polished calf gilt by Rimell; marbled endpapers, gilt dentelles, all edges gilt. Text and plates remarkably clean. Exquisite contemporary binding in fine condition. An outstanding copy, rare in such fine condition.

      NF. London: Office, 16, Wellington St. North, 1854. First edition. Household Words - A Weekly Journal - Conducted by Charles Dickens, Volume 10. The four articles, all published in December 1854, appear on pages 361-365, 385-393, 433-437 (The Lost Arctic Explorers), and 457-459 (Dr. RaeÕs Report). Volume 10 is bound together with Volume 9. Contemporary half green calf and pebbled cloth, gilt-ruled spine in six compartments, red calf lettering pieces, marbled edges. Very light spotting on endpapers. Contemporary bookseller's ticket on rear pastedown. & & Aside from being a prolific novelist, Charles Dickens was also the publisher, editor and major contributor to the weekly journal Household Words, which appeared between 1850 and 1859. Dickens shared the British public's interest in the heroic endeavors of their Arctic explorers, and was deeply affected by the tragic Franklin story. Several weeks after Rae's "Report to the Admiralty" appeared in The Times and The Illustrated London News, Dickens started a series of articles in Household Words titled "The Lost Arctic Voyagers" in which he closely examined all aspects of the alleged fate of John Franklin and his crew. Although Dickens held Rae in very high regard, he refused to believe Rae's conclusion that cannibalism had taken place.

        Bankoku-Tokai Nendai-Ki... [A Chronicle of Foreign Relations]

      N.p. (Japan),, 1854.. Small octavo, with two fine coloured woodblock prints, one double-page; original stitched wrappers, original cloth folding case; now preserved in a handsome green quarter morocco bookform box, banded spine gilt with red morocco labels. Rare and charming Japanese publication, with two fine coloured woodcuts, one a double-page view of a Dutch ship entering Nagasaki Bay, and the other depicting a Russian naval officer in full dress uniform.This slight volume was published as a description of the various voyages of foreign nations that arrived in Japan, from the earliest times up to the arrival of Perry at Uraga and Shimoda in 1854. One of the prints was used in the publication two years earlier of Manjiro Nakahama's famous Record of Drifting (see our catalogue of the Carlsmith collection, number 278).Dutch traders operated in Nagasaki in the eighteenth and early-nineteenth centuries: they were confined to the island of Deshima (Dejima), in the harbour. Only about two hundred by eighty metres, it had originally been set aside for the Portuguese as a compromise allowing them to be in Japan but preventing their propagation of Christianity. The Dutch merchants of the VOC were exotic figures, as their confinement to Deshima meant that they would barely have been seen by most residents of Nagasaki, let alone other Japanese of the period. The depiction of exotic foreigners in the Japanese decorative arts was a feature that began in the early eighteenth century: in recent years we have offered an important Imari bowl depicting VOC ships and personnel, and a rare printed view of the island.Edo, 1854 (illustrated, p. 58).

        REPORTS ON EPIDEMIC CHOLERA Drawn up at the Desire of the Cholera Committee of The Royal College of Physicians

      London: John Churchill. Bound in original brown cloth, embossed in blind. 1854. 1st edition. hb. 8vo, pp. xvi, 220. 1854. Not in G&M or Osler. A scarce title; seldom seen. . William Withey Gull (1816-1890) was a famous British physician, best known for his close association with London's Guy's Hospital. He was born aboard a barge (his father was a barge owner), and began his career as a schoolmaster. However, through the intercession of a friend and mentor, he was brought to London where he attended lectures at Guy's Hospital. His career advanced rapidly and, in 1851, he became an assistant physician and in 1856 a full physician of the hospital. In 1869 he was made a Fellow of the Royal Society, and he was created a baronet in 1872. His fame rests mainly on his clinical work, although he published papers on cholera, rheumatic fever, and paraplegia. Some recent commentators suspect that he may have been "Jack the Ripper", although, at the time of the murders, he was in his 70s and had suffered a stroke. William Baly (1814-1861) was a British physician who completed his medical studies at the Royal College of Surgeons, with post-graduate work at Paris, Berlin, and Heidelberg. He returned to London in 1836 and went into private practice. In 1859 he was appointed physician to Queen Victoria. He did significant research on dysentary and cholera. This volume contains two reports: one by Gull (pp. vi, 220) and the other by Baly (pp. xvi, 345.) The binding of this volume shows considerable wear, but our binder has discreetly stabilized any deterioration and strengthened the hinges, and replaced the endpapers. One portion of one map has been taped, leaving a yellow residue. Otherwise, the contents are clean and tight. .
