        A fine nineteenth century example of a hand-painted head-and-shoulders opalotype portrait of an unidentified woman

      - The photograph is mounted behind an oval blood-red matt gilded on the bevelled edge (visible image size 365 x 260 mm); these are surmounted by a second matt with an attractively scalloped inner edge. It is behind glass in an impressive vintage wooden frame - almost certainly of huon pine, 80 mm wide - with a very ornate gilt fillet above the glass. The external dimensions are 680 x 555 mm; the visible surface of the glass is 490 x 360 mm. Opalotypes (also called opaltypes and 'milk glass positives') are photographs printed on sheets of opaque, translucent white glass. The process was patented in 1857, and although it survived until the 1920s, this portrait from the later nineteenth century would have to be considered a very fine example of its type. It is also a credit to both the artistry of the photographer and the craftsmanship of the picture-framer, neither of whom are identified. The item was purchased in Adelaide, so it is highly likely the subject, photographer and framer were local. Use [Ask Bookseller a Question] option below to confirm availability.

        ILLUSTRATIONS OF THE MANNERS, CUSTOMS, AND CONDITION OF THE NORTH AMERICAN INDIANS WITH LETTERS AND NOTES WRITTEN DURING EIGHT YEARS OF TRAVEL AND ADVENTURE AMONG THE WILDEST AND MOST REMARKABLE TRIBES NOW EXISTING

      London: Henry Bohn, 1857/1866.. Two volumes. viii,264; viii,266pp. 313 handcolored etchings on 180 plates, including three maps (one folding). Contemporary three-quarter red morocco and marbled boards; spines tooled with gilt devices of Indian heads, tomahawks, and peace pipes; gilt morocco labels; a.e.g. Edges and corners rubbed. Bookplate on front pastedowns, hinges tender. Light scattered foxing to plates, else very clean. Very good. A deluxe set of the ninth edition of volume one and the tenth edition of volume two, both editions issued especially with the plates printed in outline and colored by hand. The London publisher, Henry Bohn, took over publication in 1845 and altered the title to that given above. What is important in this copy is the colored plates. According to Sabin (who knew Bohn quite well and was certainly in a position to be aware of the facts), "Mr. Bohn had twelve or more copies colored after the fancy of the artist who did the work, but tolerably well. Such copies are worth $60 a set." In fact, a set brought $24 at the Field sale in 1875. By comparison, a copy of the CATLIN'S NORTH AMERICAN INDIAN PORTFOLIO... sold for only $1.50 at that sale. Howes disagrees with Sabin and states that various editions published by Bohn appear with the plates colored; however, given the quality of the work involved and the lack of any contemporary evidence amongst Bohn's advertising material of a more generally available colored issue, it would seem likely that Sabin is correct, and only about a dozen were produced. The plates themselves are clean, fresh, and very handsomely colored. It is impossible to identify the colorist, but it was quite possibly one of the Catlin copyists working in England at that time, John Cullum or Rosa Bonheur. The plates illustrate scenes of Indian life in the West, or are portraits of individual Indians. The book was and is one of the most widely circulated works on American Indians written in the 19th century, and the illustrations so beautifully presented herein remain the most important body of illustrative material for wild Indian life in the American West.

      London: Longmans, Green & Co.. Third Edition - Thoroughly Revised and Enlarged.. Excellent condition with only minor signs of external wear. Provenance: As an inscription on the endpaper reads, this rare edition comes from the library of Alfred Baring Garrod's son Sir Archibald Edward Garrod (1857-1936). The inscription reads: "Prof. O. Folin from George Graham - received from Sir A.E.Garrod". Very scarce publication !. Third Edition - Thoroughly Revised and Enlarged. London, Longmans, Green & Co., 1876. 8°. XVI, 584, 24 pages. Original Hardcover (blindstamped cloth with gilt lettering on spine). Excellent condition with only minor signs of external wear. Provenance: As an inscription on the endpaper reads, this rare edition comes from the library of Alfred Baring Garrod's son Sir Archibald Edward Garrod (1857-1936). The inscription reads: "Prof. O. Folin from George Graham - received from Sir A.E.Garrod". Very scarce publication ! Sir Alfred Baring Garrod FRS (3 May 1819 ?- 28 December 1907) was an English physician. Garrod was born in Ipswich, the son of Robert and Sarah (née Ennew) Garrod. He initially apprenticed at Ipswich Hospital, and later moved to University College Hospital, where he earned his medical doctorate in 1843. Afterwards he was an assistant at West London Hospital and a physician at the Aldersgate Dispensary. In 1849, he was appointed full physician at University College Hospital, and in 1863 became a professor of materia medica and therapeutics at King's College Hospital. In 1874, he left the hospital to become an honorary Fellow and consultant physician to the college. In 1848, Garrod had discovered an abnormal increase of uric acid in the blood of patients with gout, and was the first to propose lithium as a remedy for the disorder. He recommended lithium as a treatment for mental illness, and hypothesized that gout could be a cause of mood disorders such as mania and depression. He is also credited for coining the term "rheumatoid arthritis". In 1858, he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society. In 1860, he was elected president of the Medical Society of London. In 1887 he was knighted as "Sir Alfred Baring Garrod", and in 1890 was appointed "Physician Extraordinary" to Queen Victoria. On his death in 1907 he was buried in the Great Northern cemetery, Southgate, Middlesex. He had married Elizabeth Ann Colchester of Ipswich; they had six children. Two of his sons were zoologist Alfred Henry Garrod (1846?-1879) and physician Archibald Edward Garrod (1857?-1936). (Wikipedia) ____________________________ Sir Archibald Edward Garrod, KCMG, FRS[1] (25 November 1857 ?- 28 March 1936) was an English physician who pioneered the field of inborn errors of metabolism. He also discovered alkaptonuria, understanding its inheritance. He served as Regius Professor of Medicine at the University of Oxford from 1920 to 1927. (Wikipedia)

        Atlas of the United States of North America, Canada, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland, Mexico, Central America, Cuba, and Jamaica. On a Uniform Scale with Plans of the Principal Cities and Sea-ports

      London: Edward Stanford, 1857-61 - Folio (367 × 248 mm) In the original red zig-zag grained cloth, title gilt to the front board, blind panelling to both boards, pale cream surface-paper endpapers. Somewhat rubbed, neatly rebacked with the original spine laid down, light browning throughout, but overall a very good copy. 24 stub-mounted double-page maps, most hand-coloured in outline, some more fully coloured, and 5 two-colour lithograph sheets with 9 plans of ports and harbours, map of the city of Charleston, by the same publisher mounted on the front pastedown. First edition of this superbly executed, and timely atlas showing America on the eve of the American Civil War. David Rumsey describes the work as an "unusual collaboration between a Scot (Johnston), an American (Rogers), and an Englishman (Stanford). The maps are all on a scale of 54.5 miles to one inch, and are very well executed. They are derived from the large Map of the United States, British & Central America from State Documents & Unpublished Materials by Rogers and Johnston of the same year The western U.S. maps show the routes of the proposed Pacific Railroad. Rogers probably wrote the descriptive text. Johnston engraved and drew the maps - these maps are perhaps the best examples of Scottish highly detailed mapmaking applied to the western territories and states, in the pre-Civil War period". It contains important Western maps and a genuinely noteworthy Texas map, and the maps of the territories of Utah and New Mexico are certainly among the earliest commercial atlas maps which show these territories individually, rather than combining them with other states or territories. A number of the other maps, those of the territories of Kansas, Nebraska, Washington, and Oregon for example, are also early representations of short-lived political entities, which would soon be further divided to create the smaller territories from which most of the states West of the Mississippi would eventually be created. This issue of the atlas includes an additional plan of the city of Charleston, published by Stanford in February 1861, and clearly showing Forts Moultrie, Johnson and Sumter which were to become the focus of the first battle of the Civil War.

        Der Telegraph als Verkehrsmittel. Mit Erörterungen über den Nachrichtenverkehr überhaupt.

      Verlag der H. Laupp'schen Buchhandlung,, Tübingen, 1857 - Tübingen, Verlag der H. Laupp'schen Buchhandlung, 1857. 8vo. VIII, 1 Bl., 273 S. Originale Broschur. (kl. überkl. St.a.T., geringfügig stockfl., insgesamt sehr schöner Zustand). Erste Ausgabe der seltenen Arbeit. - Knies (1821-1898) studierte 1841-1845 an der Universität Marburg, promovierte dort 1846, arbeitete danach einen Plan zur Gründung eines Polytechnikums in Kassel aus. 1852 trat er eine Lehrerstelle in Schaffhausen an, 1855 folgte er einem Ruf auf einen Lehrstuhl für Kameralwissenschaften an die Universität Freiburg, 1865 folgte er endlich einem Ruf an die Universität Heidelberg, an der er über 30 Jahre lehrte. Mit seinen Arbeiten zur "Statistik als selbständige Wissenschaft" von 1850 und vor allem mit der "Politischen Ökonomie vom Standpunkt der geschichtlichen Methode" von 1853 erweist sich Knies als ein Hauptvertreter der Historischen Schule. Er ist daneben im Bereich der Ökonomie vor allem mit bahnbrechenden Arbeiten zur Geldtheorie (1871-1876 erschienen 3 Arbeiten: Finanzpolitische Erörterungen, Geld und Kredit sowie Weltgeld und Weltmünze) und zur Verkehrswirtschaft (1853-1862) hervorgetreten. In den letztgenannten Komplex muss auch die vorliegende Arbeit im Sinne einer Kontakt- und Kommunikationsvereinfachung eingerechnet werden, indem der technische Fortschritt die überbrückbaren Entfernungen ausdehnte, gleichzeitig die Übertragungsgeschwindigkeiten steigerte. Hier durchdrang Knies, der Zeitgenosse des rasanten technischen Fortschritts war, ein aktuelles Thema und erkannte die Beschleunigung des Handels mit Folgen für eine "Globalisierung". (kl. überkl.

Binding open eggplant sorrow, back with four nerves purposes set with triple gilt fillets decorated with cold boxes, cold rollers on caps and cuts, framing quintuple gold striping and a wide net on the cold dishes, lace golden framing of contreplats, guards and contreplats silk moiré cream, light freckles on minor contreplats and guards, all edges gilt, bookplate pasted on a contreplat a clear wetting minor in the first foot slips the book, elegant contemporary binding (which occurs just as Clouzot). Very rare autograph signed by the author Alfred Guerard, close friend of Bouilhet which is dedicated to the book: "Alf. Guerard Remember friendship Gustave Flaubert " (The last letters of the word friendship and Flaubert's name was trimmed by the bookbinder). Autographs shipments are rare on Flaubert Madame Bovary. (See Clouzot). Alfred Guerard was with Gustave Flaubert closest friend Bouilhet. This large industrial Rouen was also a friend of the arts and a true patron Bouilhet who dedicated several works. Flaubert, as evidenced by his correspondence, was not wanting to invite him to his literary or artistic dinners. It will include, in 1863, one of the very few listeners Castle hearts, magic aborted knew that this "solemn reading before an Areopagus" Flaubert selects among his friends from high society: "We wanted to have a bourgeois public to judge the effect of the naive work "(see the letters to his niece Caroline in December 1863). Nice copy with autograph sending richly established contemporary binding. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Édition originale.

Très rare envoi autographe signé de Gustave Flaubert à Alfred Guerard, proche ami de Louis Bouilhet à qui est dédié l'ouvrage : « à Alf. Guerard souvenir d'amitié Gustave Flaubert » (Les dernières lettres du mot amitié et du nom de Flaubert ont été rognées par le relieur). Les envois autographes de Flaubert sont fort rares sur Madame Bovary. (cf. Clouzot). Alfred Guerard fut avec Gustave Flaubert le plus proche ami de Louis Bouilhet. Ce grand industriel rouennais était également un ami des arts et un véritable mécène pour Bouilhet qui lui dédia plusieurs ouvrages. Flaubert, comme en témoigne sa correspondance, ne manquait pas de l'inviter à ses dîners littéraires ou artistiques. Il sera notamment, en 1863, l'un des très rares auditeurs du Château des cœurs, féerie avortée qui ne connut que cette « lecture solennelle devant un aréopage » que Flaubert sélectionne parmi ses amis de la haute société : « Nous avons voulu avoir un public de bourgeois pour juger de l'effet naïf de l'œuvre » (voir les lettres à sa nièce Caroline décembre 1863).   Bel exemplaire comportant un envoi autographe, richement établi en reliure de l'époque.

        Les arts somptuaires. Histoire du costume et de l'ameublement et des arts et industries qui s'y rattachent.

      Paris, 1857 - Opera suddivisa in tre volumi di cm. 29,5. I primi due di testo di pp. (8) 344; (4) 280 con un'antiporta illustrata in cromolitografia per ciascun volume. Il seguente dedicato alla parte iconografica di pp. (6) + 322 tavole fuori testo in cromolitografia (ciascuna protetta da velina). Legatura coeva in mezza pelle rossa, dorsi a nervi con titoli in oro. Esemplare genuino e marginoso, in ottimo stato di conservazione le cui tavole hanno mantenuta intatta la freschezza della cromolitografia. Si tratta di una delle prime e più importanti opere di un genere che ebbe larga diffusione in Francia e Germania nella seconda metà dell'800. Senz'altro uno dei migliori esempi nell'utilizzo dell'arte cromolitografica. Per quanto concerne l'aspetto contenutistico, vi si traccia un panorama storico artistico che interessa prevalentemente il periodo medievale. Le tavole illustrano scene storiche, costumi, manufatti, gioielli, stoffe, armi ed armature ed i principali elementi che abbellivano la vita del tempo. Cfr. Colas 1910 e Lipperhide.

        The Professor. A Tale

      London, Smith Elder and Co, 1857., 1857. FIRST EDITION, Publisher's original cloth; the second binding (i.e two volumes bound as one), following the two volume purple cloth. This copy including both catalogues bound at rear; the 8-page adverts for the Uniform Edition, plus the publisher's 16-page April 1859. Scarce. Binding blocked in gilt to spine, tooled in blind to upper, yellow coated endpapers, bookseller ticket to rear. Showing only light wear, with a little fraying to cloth at tips, discreet owner name to flyleaf. A near fine copy, housed in a collector's leather-spined clamshell box. Charlotte Bronte's first completed novel, but her last to be published, posthumously in 1857. The 'Professor' of the title escapes from a humiliating clerkship in a Yorkshire mill to find work as a teacher in Belgium, where he falls in love with an impoverished student-teacher, regarded as the author's most realistic feminist heroine. This novel endures today as both a harbinger of Bronte's later fiction and a compelling read in its own right. Smith [7], Symington p.40.

        Report on the United States and Mexican Boundary Survey, Made under the Direction of the Secretary of the Interior

      Washington, D. C.: A. O. P. Nicholson / Cornelius Wendell. Very Good. 1857, 1859. First Edition, First Printing. Hardcover. William H. Emory was appointed commissioner of the United States and Mexico Boundary Survey following John Russell Bartlett, who was MIA from the survey upon Emory's arrival to assume his appointment. Emory was left to scrap together an effective survey party and obtain an accurate survey of the border after previous errors had ceded the Mesilla Valley, important in constructing a trans-continental railroad, to Mexico. The Gadsden Purchase had corrected this, but also added new territory to be surveyed. In addition to helping to clear up the boundary controversy, Emory's accounts were important in noting that the deserts of the southwest were not an agrarian paradise, and his team assembled a wealth of natural history and anthropological observations. This report is also notable for the illustrations, with many plates of scenery, plants, animals, and in particular color plates of the native inhabitants and birds. Two volumes bound in three, half Morocco on marbled paper with bright gilt text on spine, custom slipcase. First volume from the Senate report, second from the House. Volume I contains the personal narratives, correspondence, meteorology, geology, ethnology, and paleontology. First part of Volume II is botany; second zoology. Includes the Hall and Lesley geologic map that is often missing and was superimposed on the topographic map. Hall and Lesley's map differed from other geologic maps of the 1850s in that they preferred to base their interpretations on field-truthed observations, hence some missing spots on the map including the Colorado River. Boards of all volumes are rubbed on surfaces and edges, near foot of spine in particular. Besides a split front hinge in the first volume, bindings are sound. Creasing and one small tear to topographic map near where it is bound in, no tears to profile, geologic map has a 1-2" tear near the binding and is creased along edges. Missing bird plate 22 from the third part. A few pencil markings, faint residue on pastedowns from previous bookplates, moderate foxing and offsetting throughout. First volume has some dampstaining to bottom right corner, text on pp. 70-71 blurry due to printing error. Wagner-Camp 291, Howes E-146.; 4to 11" - 13" tall .

        Autograph Letter from Edward Macarthur to Henry Labouchere, Secretary of State for the Colonies, enclosing his own duplicate of an earlier Letter

      Head Quarters, Melbourne: 22 October, 1857. Two autograph letters with in total 5 pp. of writing, 320 x 200 mm.; very good, pierced at top left where at some time stitched, old folds. John Macarthur's eldest petitions for a KCB. Two interesting letters relating to the proposed Knighthood being offered to Edward Macarthur, son of John and Elizabeth. In 1857, the year from which the letters date, Macarthur was serving in Melbourne with some distinction, and refer to the 49 years of military and civil service he has given to the Crown.The substance of the main letter shows Macarthur urging that he be granted a higher honour than the proposed Knighthood (Companion of the Bath, or C.B.) on the grounds of protocol. Far more appropriate, he argues persuasively, for him to be made Knight Commander (K.C.B.) as befitting his rank and in recognition of the fact that he was Acting Governor 'of this most important Colony' for a year. The letter also includes his own duplicate of an earlier letter of 20 August 1857 which he had sent to the Home government, arguing that neither 'his social nor military position... would in any respect be raised (as no doubt, it is your wish should be done in my case) by either of these Honours...'. In this letter he also noted that the Companion award could have been granted earlier in his life, in the 1840s, at a time when he was being praised by the Duke of Wellington for his valuable service.In a long and varied career Sir Edward Macarthur (1789-1872) first went to Sydney with his parents John and Elizabeth in 1790 and spent his boyhood there and at Elizabeth Farm, Parramatta. He was present at the deposition of Bligh in 1808, took a commission in the 60th Regiment and served at Corunna, Sicily and France. In 1824 Macarthur returned to New South Wales and took a lively interest in the colony over the ensuing decades, including publishing two works on emigration in the 1840s. In 1851 he was posted to Sydney as deputy adjutant general. Promoted colonel in 1854, he moved with the headquarters to Melbourne, in which post he personally visited Eureka. When Governor Hotham died, Macarthur became the administrator of Victoria, a position he handled well. In 1860 he returned to England and was indeed appointed K.C.B. in 1862, so evidently these adroit letters were considered favourably.
