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

        Lake Ngami; or, Explorations and Discoveries, during Four Years' Wanderings in the Wilds of South Western Africa.

      By Charles John Anderson. With a map, and numerous illustrations representing sporting adventures, subjects of natural history, devices för destroying wild animals, &c. London, Hurst and Blackett, 1856. 8vo. xviii,+ 536 pp.+ large fold. engr. map,+ 16 lith. plates. Wood engravings in text. Publ. gilt pictorial cloth, slightly faded. Small tear on top of spine. 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

[2], ii, 51, [1], viii, 432, 99pp. PHOTOGRAPHS SENT ON REQUEST. bound with: Appendix to the report of the commission of enquiry into the supplies of the British army in the Crimea. Presented to both house of Parliament by command of Her Majesty. London. Harrison and Sons. Folio.

Preserving the Sessional title page and Index leaf at the front of the volume. * In 1855, Sir John MacNeil, a doctor who afterwards entered the Political Service in the East, and Colonel Tulloch were sent out to the Crimea by Lord Palmerston's government to report on the commissariat system. 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,

      [title continues:] , animadverting upon the conduct of certain officers on the general staff, and others in the army. Together with the minutes taken by the Board and an Appendix. 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.

        Autograph Letter Signed

      Not published Rockhills, England: Not published, 1856. Three page letter written entirely in the hand of English architect and gardener Sir Joseph Paxton, and signed by him. An excellent letter of political content. Dated March 4 1856, it reads "My dear Lemon [quite likely Mark Lemon, editor of Punch magazine and co-founder of The London Illustrated News], I fully intended to go down tonight to Boston but Sir Wm Clay's motion on which my constituents are very strong comes on tomorrow. So that I cannot carry out my intention - On finding however the nomination fixed for Thursday, I [am] determined to be there on that day on which I think I can do our friend Ingram [quite likely Herbert Ingram, co-founder of The London Illustrated News (1843)] more good, than on any other either in the mob orator way or whatever part he wishes me to play. I will go down tomorrow night by the mail or if I can get so early from the house by the train which leaves here at 5PM. In either case I will go direct to the Peacock where I trust to you to procure me a room. I am dear Lemon, yours faithfully [signed] Joseph Paxton." Paxton is noted for his use of glass and iron in a proto-modern manner. Beginning his career as a gardener and estate manager, he then built two greenhouses at Chatsworth, Derbyshire, for the Duke of Devonshire. The first was the Great Conservatory (1836-1840); the second was a smaller building, designed to protect the Victoria Regia water lily. This work served as a model for the Crystal Palace, built for the Great Exhibition of 1851. He was knighted for the success of this design. Autograph, Manuscript.. Signed. No edition. Unbound. Very good+ condition. Quarto (4to).

        JOHN HALIFAX, GENTLEMAN

      Hurst and Blackett London: Hurst and Blackett, 1856. FIRST EDITION. 191 x 114 mm (7 1/2 x 4 1/2").Three volumes, with three pages of ads at the end of the first volume and two pages at the end of the third. EXTREMELY PLEASING MEDIUM GREEN STRAIGHT-GRAIN MOROCCO, ATTRACTIVELY GILT, BY BAYNTUN (stamp-signed on front flyleaf), gilt double fillet border on covers, raised bands, gilt spine compartments with filigree lozenge centerpiece and cornerpiece volutes, blue and red morocco labels, heavily gilt turn-ins, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt.Sadleir 1812. Joints of first volume a bit flaked (with tiny cracks just beginning), two leaves with neatly repaired tear (one in lower fore margin, the other into the text, but without loss), text faintly browned at edges because of inexpensive paper, but still QUITE AN APPEALING SET, the decorative bindings bright and almost entirely unworn, and the text very clean and smooth. This is very nicely bound and rare copy of the first edition of a popular Victorian three-decker that depicts a poor, honest, and hard-working orphan whose story represents the paradigm of success available even to the lowliest at the time of the Industrial Revolution in England. In a narrative based on a true story, the title character begins as a farm laborer, is apprenticed to a tanner, teaches himself to read in a squalid attic, earns the trust of his employer, becomes a tradesman, and eventually rises to the position of capitalist and manufacturer. Along the way, he marries well, and he ultimately spends his declining years in serenity. The book is not just about attaining status and wealth, but also about achieving happiness through hard work and integrity. Dinah Maria Craik (née Mulock, 1826-87) is the author of more than 20 novels, several collections of short stories, journal articles, books of poetry, and tales for children. After the separation of her parents and the death of her mother, Craik was forced to become the sole support for her siblings, a responsibility she determined to meet by embarking upon a writing career. "The Feminist Companion" says that "beneath its veneer of romantic sentimentality, [the author's] fiction subverts conventional ideologies about women." As an example, in "A Woman's Thoughts About Women" (1858), Craik protests against marriage as the sole female occupation and demands better education and increased professional opportunities for women. While several of her other novels also drive home a more feminist message ("Agatha's Husband" of 1853, for example, and "A Life for a Life," 1859), "John Halifax" remains Craik's best-known work, in part because it was translated into French, German, Italian, Russian, and Greek. "Halifax" is seldom encountered in the marketplace, and is particularly rare in excellent condition.
