        Colonies and Colonization. A Lecture... [with] A Letter to His Excellency Colonel Thomas Gore Browne

      Auckland: Phillip Kunst, 1857. Two octavo pamphlets, 27 & 28 pp. respectively; both in excellent condition, stitch-sewn as issued, housed in a red quarter morocco box by Sangorski. Two rare Busby pamphlets. Two separately-issued pamphlets in fine original condition. Any works by Busby are of course of some significance, and these New Zealand printed works are known to be quite scarce. James Busby emigrated to New South Wales in 1824 where he pioneered Australian winemaking and published three detailed treatises on the subject. Increasing contact between Europeans and Maoris during the 1820s led to a spate of violence and lawlessness, and Busby was dispatched to New Zealand as the Official Resident in April 1833 with instructions to report to Sir Richard Bourke, the Governor of New South Wales. His duties included protecting lawful British settlers, detaining escaped convicts and curbing abuse of the Maori by Europeans. Through his early and dedicated involvement, Busby became a key figure in the early government in New Zealand. The first and perhaps more interesting work is a lecture Busby delivered in Auckland on the future of New Zealand. In the lecture, Busby openly draws on his earlier experience in New South Wales, discussing for example the importation of sheep, the growing of hops (not grapes! Busby even notes that he himself grew a small plantation of hops in Sydney 30 years earlier), the importance of flax, the "floating palaces" on board which new emigrants sail, and the sale of land. The second prints Busby's quasi-official thoughts on "responsible government" addressed to the serving Governor, and with broad-ranging notice of Wakefield, George Grey, Gladstone and the Bank of New South Wales.

      Bailliere, Paris 1857 - Morel, Bénédict Augustin (1809-73). Traité des dégénérescences physiques, intellectuelles et morales de l'espèce humaine. Text and atlas. xix, 700pp. (text); 23pp., 12 lithograph plates. Paris: J. B. Baillière, 1857. 210 x 133 mm. (text); 306 x 220 mm. (atlas). Text bound in quarter morocco, marbled boards, green vellum corners ca. 1857, slightly worn; atlas in quarter calf, marbled boards, green vellum corners ca. 1857, spine a little worn, small splits in lower hinges mended. Text volume a bit toned, otherwise very good.First Edition, complete with the atlas, often not found with the text. "The main support for the theory of mental illness as regression, which dominated psychiatric practice for several decades. Morel described and illustrated the nature, causes and signs of human degeneration. He focused on physical signs but also included various intellectual and moral deviations. This led to the classification of criminals and geniuses as types of degenerates or deviates along with the insane and neurotic. Morel emphasized the hereditary factor and his work helped bring about a de-emphasis on therapeutic work in the psychiatry of his time. The atlas reproduces by lithography some of the earliest photographs of the insane" (Garrison-Morton 4933.1). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Life of George Washington

      New York, G. P. Putnam & Co.,, 1857–9. 5 volumes, large octavo (265 × 176 mm) Finely bound c.1900 in crimson crushed morocco by Affolter, titles gilt to spines, raised bands, spines gilt in compartments, French fillet gilt to the boards, top edges gilt, inner gilt dentelles, marbled endpapers. 118 engraved plates and maps, numerous wood-cut illustrations to the text, extra illustrated with 130 etched, lithographed and photographic plates, some of them eighteenth-century. Bookplates of James W. Ellsworth, coal-mining magnate, banker and numismatist to the front pastedowns, subsequent plate of M. & J. Moore, and book label of Abel E. Berland to the front free endpapers. Three bookplates to front pastedowns and endpapers in each volume, light restoration to endpapers and front fly-leaf, minor repair to hinges, overall a handsome set in excellent condition. First illustrated edition, "issued in [68] semi-monthly paper-covered parts." (BAL) Dates on the typographical and engraved half-titles vary from the listing provided by Blanck; "The publication history of this work is involved." Sabin suggests that "to meet the wishes of the "Illustrators", one hundred and ten copies were put forth" with portraits and plates, it can be presumed that by this he means Grangerizers and this set has been extensively extra-illustrated by the addition of numerous eighteenth- and nineteenth-century plates and portraits. Irving had begun work on this biography of his namesake - "the stupendous life of Washington …this boyhood impulse" (DAB) - in 1825, but completed the last volume just months before his death, it has always been "a popular book; being Irving it could not be otherwise." (Sabin) An attractive set.

There is statistical information about the islands on either side of the map with 14 attractive vignettes depicting native inhabitants, fauna, and flora, as well as customs, religious beliefs and industry native to each area. These include islands in Dutch, Spanish, English and French possession as well as independent regions. There are also images of a few plants and fruits of Oceania, which could be of commercial interest, in down corner inserts. The actual map has forts, ports and mines marked on it. Alexandre Vuillemin (1812-1880) was a cartographer and a book editor based in Paris. Despite a prolific cartographic career, much of Vuillemin's life is shrouded in mystery. What is known is that his studied under the prominent French Auguste Henri Dufour (1798-1865). Vuillemin's most important work is his detailed, highly decorative large format Atlas de Géographie Commerciale et Industrielle.

Alexandre Vuillemin (1812-1880) was a cartographer and a book editor based in Paris. Despite a prolific cartographic career, much of Vuillemin's life is shrouded in mystery. What is known is that his studied under the prominent French Auguste Henri Dufour (1798-1865). Vuillemin's most important work is his detailed, highly decorative large format Atlas de Géographie Commerciale et Industrielle, which this map is a part of.

        Chapman's Sectional Map of Wisconsin

      Dyer & Passmore (Milwaukee) and A.S. Barnes (New York), Milwaukee & New York 1857 - Rare issue of Chapman's map of Wisconsin and the first to depict the entire state. First issued in 1853, with successive editions in 1855 and 1856, Chapman's pocket map of Wisconsin depicted the southern half of the state, i.e. the area surveyed at the time of the map's publication. In 1857, the present issue was published, extending the map northward via a joined second sheet to depict the entire state. A publisher's advertisement from 1857 shows the map being offered for sale either as just the "south part" (at $.50) or the "whole state" ($1.00). Each county is individually coloured, with most in the north part of the state still oversized and empty of settlement. Townships and sections are also shown. Several Indian reservations are also laid down, including those of the Menominee and Oneida, and the many railroad lines in the state are identified. Silas Chapman produced several maps of the Midwest from the 1850s through the 1870s, including pocket and wall maps of Michigan, Minnesota, Iowa, Illinois and Wisconsin. After partnering briefly with the printer Philetus C. Hale, he set up on his own in 1850: it was during this period that his most important maps were published. Phillips, A List of Maps of America , p. 1077 (1853 issue). Folding pocket map lithographed by F. Mayer & Co., full period hand-colouring, ornamental border. Folds into original brown cloth-covered boards, blocked in blind on covers, lettered in gilt on upper cover. A lovely map, brightly coloured, in very good condition. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Professor. A Tale.

      London, Smith Elder and Co, 1857. - FIRST EDITION: 8vo., 2 volumes. pp.294 + 2 (advertisements); pp.258 + 16 (advertisements). Elegantly bound in recent tan calf over marbled boards, twin red and black title labels with light gilt to spines; gilt rule to boards. Edges a little dusty, internally spotless. A superb copy . Charlotte Bronte's first completed novel, but 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. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
