      Sancti Spiritus, Cuba. 1856-1858.. 114pp. in three parts. Small quarto. Dbd. Light toning and foxing. Very good. Detailed reports on the proposed public works project concerning a port on the Zaza River for the province of Sancti Spiritus in central Cuba. The Zaza River reaches the sea at the small town of Tunas de Zaza, presumably the location of the port under discussion. There is much detail on both the need for the port and proposals for construction. The engineer discusses the difficulties involved, such as flooding in the river delta, as well as the benefits to commerce, both foreign and domestic. There is also mention of the need for security forces to deter any insurrection on the part of slaves. The first two documents are addressed by Joaquin Casariego to the Governor, while the last is signed by Juan Marin and Juan Falces.

        Album of 93 Original Water Colour Paintings by Richard Ford (21 April 1796 – 31 Aug 1858), Compiled by His Wife, Mary Ford (25 Jan 1816 – 4 March 1910)

      1856. () 83 leaves. Very good. Large octavo (11.75" X 9.5"). Recently finely bound in full speckled calf with blindstamped diamond design to both boards. Edges and sides of boards stamped in rolled gilt design. Spine in 6 compartments; red morocco label with gilt title to one compartment, remainder stamped heavily in gilt. Raised bands. Marbled endpapers. A.e.g. With 83 leaves containing 93 mounted water colours by Ford, a letter introducing the album, a manuscript index by Mary Ford, and a colour portrait miniature of Richard Ford on ivory. Some watercolours in sepia tones and the remainder in full colour. Manuscript titles to most paintings in the hand of Mary Ford. Some sketches loosely mounted, with Ford's manuscript notes and signatures on the back. Occasional spotting and age toning to margins of leaves. A full description of each watercolour available on request. The water colours included in this album were composed after Ford's marriage to his third wife, Mary Molseworth, on June 12, 1851. That August, Ford and Mary left on a grand tour of England and Scotland and many of the paintings here must have been completed during this honeymoon trip. Featured are many religious sites in England and Scotland, including churches, cathedrals, and abbeys at, Iffley, York, Worcester, and Durham composed, no doubt, by Ford for his young bride, "a learned ecclesiologist [who] has been enchanted with the cathedrals of Hereford, Tewksbury, Gloucester, Worcester, and York, but most of all with most Princely Durham (Robertson 259)". Their trip also took them to Bolsover Castle, Barnard Castle, Kelso, and the Lake District, most of which are depicted in the album's water colours. Also included are scenes from France, including several of Dieppe and one of the Pyrenees, dated 1856. These must be among Ford's last foreign sketches, as his health continued to decline after returning to London from Paris. As would be expected from a travel writer, most of the paintings are of specific locations and scenes, titled accordingly. This album, crafted by Mary Ford within just a few short months after Richard Ford's passing, stands as a poignant memorial to her husband, his art, and their marriage. Mary's choice to include so many images composed during their trips together-- and of Mary's favorite subjects-- must have been an emotional one. A tremendous archive of the great travel writer, artist, and critic, Richard Ford, with an unparalleled and moving familial provenance. A copy of Ford's biography is included with the book: Robertson, Ian. Richard Ford1 796-1858: Hispanophile, Connoisseur and Critic. Norfolk, UK, 2004..

        Election for West Camden. Speeches of Henry Molesworth Oxley

      Sydney,: Reading and Wellbank, n.d. but, 1856.. Octavo, inscribed "from Mr Macarthur" on the title-page, a little toned, a few spots; very good in recent neat brown cloth. Rare pamphlet relating to the first parliament in New South Wales, printing the thoughts of James Macarthur relating to his election as the member for West Camden. Inscribed "from Mr. Macarthur" at the head of the title-page.James Macarthur was born at Elizabeth Farm in Parramatta, schooled in England and Europe, but returned to New South Wales in 1817 to manage the family estates. Astute and considered, he was responsible for many innovations including pursuing his interest in the cultivation of vines, and working to improve the family's merino flock. He worked hard as a politician, and in 1837 published his work on New South Wales, its Present State and Future Prospects. The present work is the most important printed document relating to his brief political career. In 1856 he was elected as one of the founding members of the New South Wales Legislative Assembly, representing Camden. Macarthur served briefly as colonial treasurer, but soon resigned his seat in order to be re-elected for West Camden. In 1859 he retired.This rare pamphlet prints Macarthur's address of June 1856, together with the comments of his primary supporter Henry Molesworth Oxley, the younger son of the explorer John Oxley. Henry Oxley would in turn be elected as member for Camden on Macarthur's retirement.Ferguson knew only his own copy and a second in the Mitchell Library.Ferguson, 13715.

        Graphic Scenes in the Japan expedition

      New York: Putnam, 1856. Large folio. (20 1/4 x 15 inches). 12 leaves letterpress text. 10 lithographic prints on proof paper, tipped onto bristol board (one tinted portrait of Perry from a daguerreotype by P. Haas, nine views by Heine printed in colours and finished by hand) all printed by Sarony & Co. Publisher's wrappers within half dark maroon morocco over publisher's cloth portfolio. Housed in a modern red morocco backed box. The very rare deluxe coloured issue on card of this important work recording Commodore Perry's expedition to Japan. Evidence of the rarity of this album is given by Bennett writing in 1947: "Obviously several copies must have been preserved, but the one described seems to be the only one yet offered for public sale." William Heine was the official artist of Commodore Matthew C. Perry's expedition to Japan in 1853-54. On returning to the United States he produced several series of prints commemorating the trip. A group of six elephant-folio prints appeared in 1855, and the following year the present volume was issued, in a smaller format, with different images and with explanatory text. Both projects employed the New York lithographic firm of Sarony, probably the best lithographers in the United States at that time. "As artistic productions, the pictures speak for themselves ... none superior to them have been executed in the United States, and they have no cause to shun comparison with some of the best productions of Europe" (Introduction). Copies were produced on regular paper and in the deluxe form, as in the present copy, mounted on bristol board and beautifully finished by hand. The plates are numbered and titled as follows [1. portrait of Perry]; 2. Macao from Penha Hill; 3. Whampoa Pagoda; 4. Old China Street, Canton; 5. Kung-kwa at On- na, Lew-Chew; 6. Mia or road side chapel at Yokuhama; 7. Temple of Ben- teng in the harbor of Simoda; 8. Street and bridge at Simoda; 9. Temple of the Ha-tshu Man-ya-tshu-ro at Simoda; 10. Grave yard at Simoda Dio Zenge. Bennett describes the plates as "many times finer than those in the regular account of the Perry expedition." His remarks on the work's great rarity are confirmed by its absence from both the Abbey catalogue and Cordier's Japanese bibliography. Bennett, p.53. McGrath, American Color Plate Books 123.

        Eight photographic glass negative plates and prints

      Wilhelm von Gloeden (1856-1931) was a German aristocrat, wealthy and well educated but of delicate health. He  was advised to seek out a mild climate to recuperate. With financial help from his family he moved in 1876 to Taormina, a then quiet town on the northeast coast of Sicily, which he came to say was his "paradise on earth". From time to time he would visit his cousin, Wilhelm von Plüschow, in Naples who taught him the techniques of photography. In Taormina there was much to photograph--the rugged panoramas, the Greek and Roman remains which were everywhere, and of course the young men and boys whose classical beauty overwhelmed him. He posed his models, often unclothed, on the terrace of his villa, at one of the picturesque ruins near at hand, or against one of the many striking vistas. Von Gloeden made no secret of his homosexuality but was accepted by his neighbors who seemed able to ignore what he was doing with their sons. They appear to have loved him in fact. He certainly provided much welcome money, as outright payment or as royalties to his models, or other support when the families were in difficulty, and his aristocratic background may have added a touch of glamor. From 1883 his photographs began to be noticed. There was an exhibition at the Royal Photographic Society in London, and his photographs were published in various German periodicals devoted to art and even in the National Geographic in the United States. The period from 1890 to the outbreak of World War One was his most productive period. In the end he may have taken as many as 7000 pictures. None were overtly sexual, although the homoerotic content was clear. They had a wide appeal, and his villa at Taormina became a place for the rich and famous to visit. Oscar Wilde came, as as did King Edward VII, André Gide, Richard Strauss, Rudyard Kipling, to mention only a few. His idyl came to an end in 1915 when Italy joined the Allied side. Von Gloeden returned to Germany. One of the first boys he photographed, Pancrazio Bucini, known as "il Moro" because of his dark good looks, who had become his devoted companion, kept an eye on the villa. Von Gloeden was able to return in 1919 which turned out to be a sad homecoming for him because he was able again to review the images of so many youths whose lives were lost during the war. Von Gloeden died in 1931. Everything was inherited by Pancrazio Bucini who kept it all lovingly. However in 1933 the Italian Fascist government confiscated and destroyed around 1000 glass negatives. Then in 1936 there was an "anti-vice" campaign and another 1000 negatives were smashed. Bucini stoutly defended his late friend, although he had to endure years of imprisonment. What remains today are about a 1000 glass plates. The Kinsey Institute has 250. The rest are dispersed in various private and public collections.

Bocourt och tryckta av bröderna Becquet, avbildar djur och preparater i Paris museum. I de fylliga beskrivningarna av djurarterna upplyser Dahlbom bl.a. om att Paris museum äger två daguerreotypiporträtter av chimpanser, "troligen bland de första som blifvit tagne af lefvande djur." Med tanke på den långa exponeringstiden får det betecknas som en bedrift att levande djur över huvudtaget porträtterades under daguerreotypieran

Fine copy from the library of Måns Ryberg. Mendelssohn p. 41. First edition of the Swedish Africa explorer and big game hunter Charles John Andersson's first book. It describes two expeditions made by Andersson, the first in company with Francis Galton to Nangoro Werft in 1851-52, and the other is when he travelled by himself to the Lake Ngami in 1853. Few books, according to Mendelssohn, give so "full and complete an account of Namaqualand, Damaraland, and the Ovampo country, and the description of the fauna of these countries is absolutely unequalled". Värmlänningen Charles John Anderssons första bok om sina äventyr i sydvästra Afrika. C. J. Andersson (1827-67) var oäkta son till Llewellyn Lloyd, under ett av dennes äventyr bland björnar och pigor i Sverige. Denne ville inte kännas vid sonen som fick ta moderns namn.Han fick däremot följa fadern på jaktexpeditioner. Efter studier i Vänersborg och Lund begav han sig till London, och ägnade sig därefter åt jakt och upptäcksresor i nuvarande Namibia. Han dog på vägen till Ondonga i Ovamboland. Enligt sägnen skall Lloyd ha erbjudit Andersson sitt erkännande och efternamn efter att denne börjat bli känd, men Andersson tackade nej

Carl Johan Sundevall (1801-75) var zoolog, professor och intendent vid Riksmuseet. Johan Gustaf Hjalmar Kinberg (1820-1908) var zoolog och professor vid Veterinärinstitutet.

Of particular interest was the importance of diet and adequate accommodation and clothing on the health of the men. Their report threw much light on the inadequacies of the transport and supply systems which had so exacerbated the hardships of the army during the campaign. They prepared also statistical tables of the sickness and mortality in the army. In the Crimea they consulted extensively with Florence Nightingale and Dr. Sutherland, one of the Sanitary Commissioners sent out to the east. Both MacNeill and Tulloch became friends and supporters of Miss Nightingale who greatly admired their work. Writing to Lady Tullock in 1878, she called their report "the Salvation of the army in Crimea."The Report, issued in January, was, according to Cook, "the one official document among the pile produced by the Crimean War which brought responsibility directly home to specified individuals. (Cook. I, p.336-7).

        Report of the Board of General Officers appointed to inquire into the statements contained in the reports of Sir John M'Neil and Colonel Tulloch, and the evidence taken by them relative thereto,

Presented to both Houses of Parliament by command of Her Majesty. First Edition. PHOTOGRAPHS SENT ON REQUEST. London. George Edward Eyre and William Spottiswoode. HMSO. 1856. Folio. [2], xxxii, [2], 611, [1]pp. bound with: Index to Report of the Board of General Officers appointed to inquire into the statements contained in the reports of Sir John M'Neil and Colonel Tulloch, and the evidence taken by them relative thereto. Ordered, by the House of Commons to be printed, 29 July 1856. [London. HMSO. 1856.] Folio. viii, 104, [2]pp. Rebound in blue cloth with red label. Preserving the Sessional title page and Index leaf at the front of the volume. Army feathers were very considerably ruffled by the Mc-Neill Tullock Report and Lord Panmure agreed that a board of military officers should assemble at Chelsea in order to have the opportunity of defending themselves. The Report of the Chelsea Board was an attempt at whitewash. It removed all blame from individuals and found that the true cause of the Crimean muddle was the failure of the treasury to send out, at the proper moment, a particular consignment of hay. This caused Florence Nightingale considerable private indignation and many years later MacNeill complained of the ill-befitting "levity" which "in the face of the appalling statistics of disease and mortality... would refer the fatal privations so heroically endured to so ludicrously inadequate a cause."The Chelsea Report had nearly done the trick of burying the McNeill-Tullock report when The Times took up the cause and a popular groundswell of support in the country, fostered where possible by Florence Nightingale and her agents, forced the government to take note. Sidney Herbert in the Commons moved that the Queen should bestow some mark of appreciation on the two men and the motion was passed. "Victory" wrote Florence Nightingale in her diary. She and her allies had mobilised public opinion against the inertia of Lord Panmure and the attempts at self defence by the army and she had won. Though not mentioned by name, the Macneill Tulloch report was inspired and championed by Florence Nightingale, written by her allies, and contained the views she endorsed on Army maladministration and incompetence. The Chelsea Report has no input from Florence Nightingale because its purpose was precisely to refute what she and her allies had been saying. But it forms a vital part of the background to her renewed campaign for proper sanitary arrangements for the British Army and proved an important moment of victory, both symbolic and actual, for her cause against the formidable forces of reaction which opposed her. See Cook, I. 336-8.
