        Australian Album 1857

      Sydney: J.R. Clarke, 1857. Large quarto, with a total of ten lithographic plates, including the illustrated title-page and frontispiece; comprising eight musical scores with introductory letterpress (preface and contents leaves); a very good copy in original red cloth decorated in gilt and lettered "Australian Album" to the front board, some wear to the upper joint and extremities, as to be expected of a book of this nature. The first Sydney songbook. First edition of the first music album published in New South Wales, publishing eight Australian musical scores for a popular audience.Although individual songs and sheet music scores had been printed previously, this is the first complete published musical album. A such, it includes a title-page and frontispiece (in addition to illustrated title-pages for each song), a welcoming preface and table of contents. Furthermore, Clarke had the album published in decorative gilt titled red cloth, clearly showing this book was intended as a cherished possession - in contrast to the relatively ephemeral nature of sheet music production. Although Isaac Nathan's 1849 publication The Southern Euphrosyne does indeed feature musical content, it is interspersed with anecdote, reminiscences and other detail, and cannot be regarded as a musical album as such.The preface to the Australian Album, penned by budding author Frank Fowler, is of some interest. It proudly boasts the compositions are all Australian, indeed 'are all new - all colonial. Here - in this city - they were played, printed and published... We can send the work home as a specimen of what we can do out here at Botany Bay - as an index of our education, refinement, art-feeling'. The reference to the thriving port of Sydney as 'Botany Bay' is an ironic reference to the convict past, and reflects a strong emerging national identity. Publications such as the Australian Album are typical of the era immediately following the end of convict transportation to the east coast of Australia, when an emerging middle class of free settlers strove to define a new identity for the colony.The Australian Album is valued for the splendid title-pages accompanying each of the songs. They are the work of Edmund Thomas (1827-1867) who had earlier illustrated a well-received album of Melbourne views. A testament to the skill of lithographic printing in Sydney by the mid-nineteenth century, the ten plates include scenic views of the Botanic Gardens, Sydney Heads, Rose Bay, the North Shore and Rose Bay. These images capture Sydney leisure activities, with prosperous citizens enjoying the natural beauty of the harbour and environs.Clarke was quick to capitalise on the fame of visiting celebrity performers, and the album contains two portrait plates. The first depicts Irish singer Catherine Hayes who toured Australia throughout 1855-1856, and also second is Austrian violinist Miska Hauser.The Australian Album is scarce indeed; we have been able to locate only two copies held in public collections (at the University of Queensland and also in the Fisher Rare Book Library of Sydney University). It is conspicuously absent from the catalogue of the exhibition 'Music Printing and Publishing in Australia' held at Monash University in November 2000.

A church-state controversy involving the use of public funds to finance the common school system to the detriment of Catholic sectarian schools. The Clergy Reserve funds were intended for Catholics and Protestants alike. To avoid dissension the legislature decided instead to devote the funds to educational resources for the common school system and public libraries. Rev. Bruyere, representing Catholic interests, protests the use of Catholic and Protestant money to bolster common schools where religion is "banished . where the child of Christian parents must be taught practically that all religious systems are equally pleasing . be he a believer in the immutable decrees of eternal reprobation or a follower of the imposter Joe Smith."

        AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF A FEMALE SLAVE

      J. S. Redfield, New York City 1857 - Small 8vo, pp. 401, ads. Bds. heavily worn & bumped, with noticeable soiling. Rear hinge cracked, binding a bit sprung, ffep removed; still a good copy. Martha Griffith Browne (also known as Mattie Griffith) was a white woman who, prior to her conversion to abolitionism, had owned slaves. She wrote sketches and poems for "The National Anti-Slavery Standard", before writing this fictionalized slave narrative in 1856. "Autobiography of a Female Slave" is one of several noteworthy antebellum novels about slavery that were written by abolitionist authors. In some cases these novels reflected the storytelling style and conventions of the slave narrative so convincingly that they were mistaken for actual autobiographies of former slaves. The effectiveness of these novels in representing slavery, and the point of view of slaves, made them useful weapons in the antislavery struggle. (See: "Documenting the American South. North American Slave Narratives", University of North Carolina [Chapel Hill] - available online; also "Black Slave Narratives", John F. Bayliss (ed.) Macmillan, 1970). The title has recently been reprinted a number of times. Although the copyright page shows the date of 1856, when the novel was written, it was not published until 1857. This is the first edition, and a very scarce title, in its original, unsophisticated, binding. Bound in original brown cloth with gilt spine lettering [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Travels and Discoveries in North and Central Africa: Being a Journal of an Expedition Undertaken Under the Auspices of H.B.M.'s Government, in the Years 1849-1855

      London: Longman, Brown, Green, Longmans, and Roberts, 1857-58.. First English edition. Five volumes. 8vo. Contemporary tan full calf, spines with raised bands, original red title labels with sympathetically renewed green author and volume labels, loss of gilt to the other compartments, all edges and endpapers marbled. Gift inscription to the half title of volume I to Lady Florence Norman from George Taubman Goldie with a later inscription in her son Ronald's hand beneath stating that "'These volumes Belonged to [Goldie] founder of Nigeria... It was through reading these, as he told me, that his attention was first directed to Africa". A small nick to the title label of volume I, neat repairs to the joints of each volume, a very good set. 60 lithographed plates, 15 folding maps and 1 folding woodcut plan plus further woodcuts in the text. George Taubman Goldie (1846-1925) was an unconventional character who by circumstance and opportunity developed British commercial and political interests in the Niger region in the 1870s and 1880s. In the scramble for land being contested with the French, Goldie sought and gained chartered status from the British Government for his enterprises, initially as the National African Company and subsequently as the Royal Niger Company. Thus he secured British rule in the area and, for a time, a near commercial monopoly for his company. Goldie's earlier life was somewhat more romantic. After leaving military service he moved to Egypt and on falling in love with an Arab woman he settled in Sudan for several years. At this time he "read most of what was written about the savanna belt of Muslim territory stretching across to the Atlantic" (ODNB), presumably including this important work. Abbey, Travel, 274.

        Manuel Entomologique. Genera des Coléoptères d'Europe comprenant leur classification en familles naturelles, la description de tous les genres, des tableaux dichotomiques destinés à faciliter l'étude, le catalogue de toutes les espèces, de nombreux dessins au trait de caractères.

      Paris, A. Deyrolle, 1857-1868. 4 volumes. 4to (275 x 175mm). With 303 (292 fine handcoloured) engraved plates. Recent red cloth, spines with gilt lettering. The rare coloured issues of this fundamental handbook on Coleoptera published some 20 years after Dejean & Boisduval's work on the Coleoptera of Europe. The plates of the present work are probably the finest ever made for a work on coleoptera. They were engraved after drawings by Jules Migneaux and splendidly coloured by Madame Mignaux and can hardly be surpassed in beauty and exactness by any other work of the period. Jacquelin du Val died at the early age of 34 and the work was continued by Fairmaire. Our copy contains the 'Catalogue de la Famille des Carabides' which is sometimes lacking. The plates are exceptionally clean. A fine complete copy.//Nissen ZBI, 2083.

        AN ALBUM OF 19TH CENTURY GERMAN SCENERY

      1857. n. Hardcover. With Richly-Colored Mid-19th Century German Scenes. 152 x 241 mm (6 x 9 1/2"). Original blue buckram with charming panels of woven straw resembling embroidered samplers on covers, that on upper cover with pink, blue, and green floral frame and natural-colored floral cornerpieces enclosing the word "ALBUM," that on lower cover with checkerboard frame and large central floral bouquet in pink, blue, green, and white, with pink roses in corners, flat spine, moir?-textured white endpapers, all edges gilt. WITH 23 ATTRACTIVE HAND-COLORED ENGRAVED VIEWS OF GERMAN SCENERY, some highlighted with gum arabic, all mounted on blank leaves; some of the cards with handwritten captions with the date "1857."Very short tears to cloth at head and tail of front joint, cloth a little rubbed, lower panel with half a dozen tiny losses to frame, front hinge beginning to weaken at bottom, isolated minor foxing and thumbing, but still a very well-preserved example of a fragile item. This is a delightful souvenir of a tour of Germany, offered in a binding with delicate handmade decoration that represents a lucky survival. Woven straw bindings are uncommon, both because of the considerable labor necessary to produce them in the first place and because of the fragility that has militated against their survival. An album of holiday pictures would have seen much use, as the owner relived adventures or shared them with friends, and the present item has seen its share of careful handling. Still, the rustic beauty of the meticulously woven straw panels remains intact and retains its Victorian appeal. The British Library has at least one 19th century pictorial woven straw binding (shelfmark c188c4) made in England, where the present binding could have been produced--though it is more likely continental. In any case, the workmanship and design in the BL example are not so fine as what is seen here.

      . . Borba de Moraes II, 619 u. 621 ("Scarce"); Ferguson, Australia, VII, 15471a; Henze V, 548 (Wüllerstorf-Urbair) u. 32f. (Scherzer). - Gutes Exemplar der "großen" Ausgabe des offiziellen Berichts über die Weltfahrt der "Novara". Die Expedition der Novara gilt als die letzte große wissenschaftliche Weltumsegelung des 19. Jahrhunderts. Besonders erfolgreich und ergiebig waren die wissenschaftlichen Arbeiten der Expedition im Südpazifik und Ozeanien. So erforschte u.a. der teilnehmende Geologe Fr. Hochstetter für nahezu ein Jahr Neuseeland. Zu den besuchten und beschriebenen Ankerplätzen gehörten ferner Rio de Janeiro, das Kap der guten Hoffnung, Ceylon, Madras, Singapur, Java, Manila, Hongkong, Shanghai, Sydney, Tahiti und Valparaiso. Die Beweggründe für die Ausrichtung des außerordentlich teuren Unternehmens legt der Kommandant des Schiffes, von Wüllerstorf-Urbair, in seinem Vorwort dar: Angeregt durch die großen Erfolge anderer Nationen, wie zum Beispiel der Amerikaner (Japan-Expedition Perrys), sei man auch in Österreich zu der Ansicht gelangt, dass eine Expedition durchaus neben wissenschaftlichen auch wirtschaftlichen Zwecken dienen könne. So war es u.a. Aufgabe der Novara "die österreichische Flagge an verschiedenen von ihr (der Kriegsmarine) noch nicht besucht gewesenen Punkten zu zeigen (und) die Interessen der Industrie ... zu fördern". Gleichzeitig war aber von Beginn an geplant, die Expedition mit einem Stab ausgewählter Wissenschaftler auszustatten. Als wissenschaftliche Arbeitsgrundlage sollten die extra bei Alexander von Humboldt angeforderten "Physikalischen und geognostischen Erinnerungen" (Erstdruck als "Beilage" in Bd. I) dienen. Es verwundert nicht, dass der Bericht über die geglückte Weltreise in einem der Bedeutung des Unternehmens angemessenen, großzügigen Rahmen erschien. So wurde u.a. viel Sorgfalt auf eine reiche Ausstattung mit Karten- u. Bildbeilagen, die von dem eigens mitgeschickten Künstler Joseph Selleny stammen, verwendet. - Gutes, teilweise nicht ganz aufgeschnittenes Exemplar. 2 Faltkarten mit hinterlegten Einrissen, bei 2 Bänden Titel rückseitig gestempelt (tlw. rasiert). ** Bestellungen bis 14 Uhr versenden wir am selben Tag. - Schweizer Postkonto vorhanden. **
