        Autograph letter signed.

      [No place], 30. VIII. 1855. - 8vo. 1 p. Accompanied by an autograph poetical manuscript signed by Clément, being a gift for Sand on the death of her grand-daughter. In French, to Abbé S. Clément: "Thank you so much, dear Sir; you are the good shepherd, both sympathetic and consoling. Your poem is sincere, and that is what makes it good, since form only is nothing when the idea is not there. Yes, yes, it is true love is stronger than death, and I am sure that my child and I will be together again. The other night, I dreamed that she was returned to me, and I regard this dream as a gift sent to me. I do not have superstitions about dreams, but when they are sweet, I think we must be grateful. They are a consolation that night brings to our days. Again, thank you. With much love from the bottom of my heart".

        SIGNED ENVELOPE Charles Dickens to Daniel Maclise Date-stamped 1855

      London, 1855. Autographed envelope dated 1855. 12.7 cm x 7.3 cm. The envelope is Signed in the lower left corner by Charles Dickens, as was the usual practice in the Victorian era. Addressed to "Daniel Maclise Esquire. R.A. / 14 Russell Place / Fitzroy Square". Daniel Maclise (1806-1870) was one of Dickens's closest and life-long friends. He illustrated his Christmas Books: The Chimes; Cricket on the Hearth; and The Battle of Life. His 1839 portrait of Dickens at the age of 27 became the frontispiece for Nicholas Nickleby. The envelope contains a "Mone Penny" postage stamp with the letter 'L' in the corner, and rubber-stamped with the date 'JA 3 '55'. On the reverse, on the flap, is Dickens's rubber-stamp in blue (a 'D' within a garter or buckled belt). There is another postal rubber-stamp in orange dated 1855. Slightly soiled. I surmise that the orange streaks on the front of the envelope are from the ink of the postal stamp on the reverse as they are the exact same colour. The envelope has been opened and is empty. Overall, a wonderful piece of Signed Dickensiana, with a superb association.. SIGNED. Very Good. Envelope.

        A series of etchings chiefly of views in Scotland. By John Clerk of Eldin, Esq. MDCCLXXIII - MDCCLXXIX. With additional etchings and facsimiles from his drawings.

      Edinburgh: Printed for the Bannatyne Club, 1855. - FIRST COMPLETE COLLECTED EDITION. Folio. 505 X 320mm., frontis. portrait of Clerk on India-paper, (some spotting and offset to title), litho. plate of unfinished etchings, mezzotint portrait of Lord Eldin (the artist's son), 42 plates of etchings (20 being full-page, the rest with between 2 and 5 views to a plate), 13 tinted litho. plates (10 full-page and 3 with 2 views to a plate), all with tissue guards, orig. quarter dark red skiver morocco, cloth sides, paper label on upper cover, some foxing to e.p.'s, contents fresh and bright, spine scraped and chafed and chipped at top and base, cloth sides dull and rubbed and unevenly faded. [One of about 120 copies printed. In 1825, the Bannatyne Club printed a suite of 28 etchings, then all that was known to exist of the eighty or ninety thought to have been executed, presented to the Club as the contribution of Lord Eldin, the brilliant and eccentric advocate and eldest son of the artist. Some months later, Lord Eldin discovered a considerable number of small copperplates, which were finally purchased by the Club in 1848. All were incorporated into this greatly enlarged collection, which also includes 16 lithographic reproductions of drawings and sketches which had never been engraved. The edition also contains 10 pages of biographical notices, and 14 pages describing the views. Clerk of Eldin was one of the pioneers of etching in Scotland, attaining an extraordinary technical proficiency, particularly in the series of small plates, some of them hardly bigger than a visiting card. But he also did medium-sized and and indeed quite large plates, and his views of Craigmillar Castle, The Hill of Arthur's Seat, Edinburgh from Lochend, Picardy near Edinburgh, etc. amply demonstrate that he could work on a large scale. E.S. Lumsden (Print Collector's Quarterly, vol. xii) asserts that Clerk was influenced by foreign engravers, and certainly some of his plates show a measure of kinship to Hollar's work. "Some of his finest plates entitle him to a definite and permanent place among the etchers who count."]. [Terry 98]. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        On the Barwon near Fryer's [sic] Ford, Geelong

      Pencil drawing on paper, 140 x 225 mm, titled in pencil lower centre, foxed. Evidently a contemporary copy of the lithograph by S. T. Gill 'On the Barwon near Fyans Ford, Geelong', published in 1855 by James J. Blundell & Co. in 'The diggers and diggings of Victoria as they were in 1852'. Edward Turner arrived in Melbourne in 1856, and after visiting Geelong, Portsea and the Forrest Creek diggings travelled to Sydney in 1857. He worked as an engraver, married in 1861 and in 1863 started his own business as a lithographic printer. By 1866 he was advertising as a bookseller and stationer and in 1871 he entered a partnership with William Henderson, establishing in Hunter Street a firm of booksellers, stationers, publishers and printers under the name Turner and Henderson. The firm also operated as an art gallery. Turner died in 1913, upon which the business passed on to his son, who was bankrupt within a year. Provenance: Acquired from the artist's descendants in Sydney by Tim McCormick circa 1980s. A collection of related works depicting Sydney and surroundings (some signed) from the same source were acquired by the Mitchell Library in 2002 (PXE 879).

        Book of Records of the Church of Christ at Mission Institute 1846 - 1855

      [Quincy, Illinois?], 1855. Ledger. Good +. Large octavo (approx. 9.25" x 7.5"). [244] pages. Dull gray paper covered boards with brown leather spine. Light shelf and edge wear to covers and spine. Faded bookseller oval stamp on the front board. 36 pages were used for recording minutes by various clerks. Found inside the ledger is an old tattered newspaper, split at the folds and stitched at the edges. At the bottom of the newspaper is a faded pencil note - "Used at Mission Institute 1840." On the back side of the newspaper is a blank sheet of paper with drawn representations of various geometric figures. Ledger includes the "Articles of Faith", "Covenant", "Rules", "Conduct", "Business & Discipline", and a "List of Members". The Church of Christ at Mission Institute was formed in 1846. The first entry in the minutes, dated February 3, 1846, reads - "Citizens & students at Mission Institute met for the purpose of organizing a church ....It was then moved that this church be called the Church of Christ at Mission Institute. Meeting then adjourned by Prayer. J Weller Clerk." The last entry is dated Oct. 6, 1855. The following [4] sheets are cut out and the remainder of the ledger mostly blank with the exception of 4 pages of unrelated list of food stuffs. 78 names are recorded in the list of Church members. Some of the names often repeated in the ledger include Geo. F. Davis, Prof. Elijah Griswold, S. D. Houston, Martha Houston, Geo Hutchinson, T H Johnson, H D Platt, and James Weller. The location of the Church was not provided although written in the minutes it appears the Church of Christ was located in Quincy, Illinois. The entry dated April 7th (1847) states "At a church meeting Brethren J Weller & G. F. Davis were appointed as representatives to the Association meeting at Quincy on Thursday April 8th." Much of what is written in the minutes of the formal meetings includes a search for a Pastor, the reception of new members, disciplinary actions initiated by the Church committee, rule discussions, and several prayer sessions. In the minutes taken December 25th, 1850 - "At a meeting of this Church after prayer meeting, A L Leonard in Charge, Matthew Dutton presented a letter from the Baptist Church of Springfield Ill and was rec. as a member of this Church. Also Geo Hutchinson by letter from Central Pres. Ch. St. Louis. and Miss Jones on profession." An early prominent member of the Church of Christ at Mission Institute was George F. Davis. Davis was educated at the Mission Institute, Quincy, Illinois having studied there from 1841-1847 (Source: "History of the Presbyterian Church in Illinois" by Augustus Theodore Norton, 1879). The formation of the Church of Christ at the Mission Institute came after the Mission Institute was founded in the late 1830's. Quincy is situated across the Mississippi river from Missouri. At the time this ledger was in use Missouri was a slave holding State. The town of Quincy, an abolitionist stronghold founded on antislavery principles, was a stop on the Underground Railroad for runaway slaves. One of the better known citizens of Quincy during this period was the abolitionist Asa Turner who later moved to Iowa.

        The First Tour of Doctor Syntax, in search of the picturesque; [with] The Second Tour of Doctor Syntax, in search of consolation; [and] The Third Tour of Doctor Syntax, in search of a wife

      London: Nattali and Bond, Bedford Street, Covent Garden [through 1855], 1812. Early Reprint. Paper-Covered Boards. Fine. Ninth Edition, complete in three volumes with 80 hand-colored aquatints by Thomas Rowlandson. (Eighty-one plates are called for on the title pages, but the plate lists contain a total of only 79, with the illustrated title page in Vol. 3 unlisted. Presumably, there was an illustrated title page planned for the Second Tour but never included.) Tall 8vo's: [6],272,[6, catalog of books published by Nattali and Bond]; [4],277,[1]; [6],279,[1]pp. Hand-marbled paper-covered boards, finely woven green cloth spines, matching morocco lettering pieces gilt, recently bound by Fitterer, a truly splendid production. Fine bindings; clean, wide-margined pages with only occasional offsetting; vibrant, deep, rich, fresh coloring. Abbey, Life, 265-67. Tooley 427-29. The three tours of Doctor Syntax, featuring the comic, skin-and-bone cleric at the mercy of all manner of misadventures was supposedly based on an idea of Rowlandson's close friend, the actor Jack Bannister, and with verses by William Combe, first appeared in 1812, 1820, and 1821, respectively. Combe's letterpress for Rowlandson's illustrations, produced by the prestigious publisher and art dealer Rudolph Ackermann, earned Combe his soubrette, Doctor Syntax. "Combining a light-hearted satire of William Gilpin's theory of the picturesque in art with a central character modelled on Cervantes' Don Quixote and Henry Fielding's Parson Adams, Combe created a lovable eccentric whose misadventures on the road structure the Tour. [Other sources for Syntax, drawn from the picturesque tradition, were probably Le Sage's Gil Blas and Smollett's Peregrine Pickle, as well as Samuel Butler's earlier Hudibras.] For over a century the many editions and numerous imitations of the Tour attested to the popularity of Combe's humorous hero." (ODNB) "Combe's first Dr. Syntax book (originally published in the Poetical Magazine in 1809) and its successors . . . satirize the many 18th- and early 19th-century writers whose "Tours," "Travels," and "Journeys" were vehicles for sententious moralizing, uninspired raptures, and sentimental accounts of amorous adventures. The popularity of Combe's work owed much to the illustrations of Thomas Rowlandson." (Britannica) N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition.

        [GOLD RUSH] Ambrotype of Samuel and Elizabeth Bates, emigrants to Australia, 1855

      [United Kingdom or France] : [s.n.], 1855. Quarter plate ambrotype photograph with hand colouring, 130 x 105 mm, with original passe-partout frame comprising the cover glass (180 x 140 mm) and papered chip-board preserver with oval cut-out and gold painted border; the ambrotype with the original blackened backing paper intact, affixed to the back of the ambrotype's top edge with the original spots of glue (this uppermost part of the ambrotype is not exposed in the oval frame), original cloth covered thick card backing, with contemporary manuscript label inscribed "Samuel Bates and Lizzy his Wife, 1st January 1855. Left for Austrilla (sic) soon after"; although all of the ambrotype's original components are present, the frame's cloth border has perished, meaning that the components are now separated (this actually provides a good opportunity to observe how this type of "uncased" ambrotype was assembled); the cover glass has a short diagonal scratch at the right hand edge, not impinging on the main image; the ambrotype itself is in very good condition, a beautifully composed portrait with rich tonal range and delicate colouring. The ambrotype, a cheaper alternative to the daguerreotype, became popular in the United Kingdom, Europe and North America from around 1853. A glass plate covered with a thin layer of collodion, then dipped in a silver nitrate solution, was exposed to the subject while still wet, then developed and fixed. When the reverse of this negative image was coated with a dark emulsion such as varnish or paint (or, as in the present example, covered with a sheet of blackened paper), the resulting image appeared as a positive. The process required the expertise and experience of a professional photographer. The majority of ambrotypes, like daguerreotypes, were sold to the client in a custom case made of either leather covered wood or thermoplastic, which was usually lined with velvet, with an ornamental ormulu border framing the image itself; the plainer and less expensive uncased ambrotype, produced in a passe-partout frame as a ready-to-display photograph, was more popular in continental Europe and, to a lesser extent, the United Kingdom, than in North America. The portrait ambrotype of Samuel and Elizabeth Bates which we offer here was most likely taken by a British or French studio. Samuel and Lizzy evidently joined the rush to the Australian goldfields, probably departing from England early in 1855.

      - Wien, Kaiserlich-Königlichen Hof- und Staatsdruckerei [1855-1856]. Two folio nature-printed plates (58 x 40 cm, circa 45 x 30 cm for printed area). Unbound and uncut with full margins. = Constantin Freiherr von Ettingshausen (1826-1897), professor of botany at the University of Graz was a major researcher of European Tertiary floras. He also had a great interest in nature printing, for its accuracy in transferring a real natural history object to an image on paper. In his "Physiotypia Plantarum", these two interests were combined. The present set of fern plates seem to be proof plates, since they do not have printed captions or plate numbers, only pencil annotations in the top margin and at the bottom of plates' versos. The imprint seems extremely pronounced, which supports the idea of them being among the very first coming through the press. In fact they are among the most fantastic examples of nature printing with their very decorative botanical illustrations. Only nature printing can give this true 3D effect to a plate, and these are among the best ever made. Both plates are in very good condition, with only a few small and marginal imperfections never disturbing the printed area. Scientific names in pencil in the top right margin. The complete work consisted of five folio atlases with 500 plates. According to Stafleu & Cowan: "the most important work produced by nature printing ever published". Even individual plates are very rare. Fischer No. 69; Nissen BBI, 613; Pritzel 2756; Stafleu & Cowan, 1723. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Sir Thomas Mitchell, explorer and surveyor : autograph letter, signed, to E.J. Bennett.

      1855, 26 July. Surveyor-General’s Office, Sydney; [2] pp, folio. Official letter from the Surveyor-General of New South Wales, Sir Thomas Mitchell, to the newly appointed Assistant Surveyor-General, E.J.Bennett, regarding three circulars that have been sent to Bennett in error, and assuring him that he should not concern himself with their content; written in Mitchell’s own hand and signed by him at the foot, T.L. Mitchell. The letter was written shortly before Mitchell's death. “Considering the testimonials you have favored me with a perusal of, I do not imagine it probable – or indeed possible, that I could ever be under the necessity of becoming a party to the injury you would sustain by the alternative alluded to in some of these Circulars.”
