        The Game of Billiards (Cover title: A Manual of the Game of Billiards)

      New York: D. Appleton & Company, 1858. 3rd Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. "Revised, Enlarged, and Richly Embellished with Engravings." Complete with 267 pages and tissue-protected frontispiece showing the author. 28 full-page diagrams with in-text illustrations throughout. Sound binding with intact hinges. Clean pages; front free endpaper has a faint corner crease. Light cover wear; the gilt cover decoration is in nice shape. The spine is sunned and the lettering is faded but still legible. Includes information or the game's origin, tables, cues, cushions, balls, rules, techniques, shots, jargon, playing rooms, as well as sections on billiards humor and Shakespeare as a billiard player. This was the second book on billiards published in the U.S. The Billiard Congress of America Hall of Fame notes that "Michael Phelan is considered by many to be the Father of American Billiards as a player, inventor, manufacturer and tireless popularizer of billiards. He played in and won the first billiard stakes match in 1859, and holds many patents for table designs and cushions. He is credited as being the first to put diamonds on tables. He authored "Billiards Without A Master" (1850), the first American book on billiards, and set the trend for lavish billiard rooms through his New York room on Broadway."

        [Manuscripts]: 11 One Act Plays

      A collection of 11 unpublished playscripts by Henry Dingley Coolidge (1858-1922). The scripts are all individually bradbound in wrappers and laid into a tan cloth chemise. All are near fine with some wear at the extremities and a bit of toning, in a near fine lightly rubbed chemise. Coolidge, a direct descendant of Mayflower pilgrim William White, served as clerk for the Massachusetts Senate for 33 years. His interest in literary pursuits was well known, and noted in a senate resolution upon his sudden death in 1922, but during his lifetime he published just two books: Manual for the Use of the General Court and Dead Reckoning: A Farce. The one-act playscripts offered here are unpublished and were preserved by Coolidge's son, whose name and address are written on a paper label on the front pastedown of the chemise along with a list of titles. Though most of the plays are straightforward dramas and comedies, several venture into the supernatural, such as: Mary, Be You a Witch?, based on the Salem witch trails; Haunted?, a story on spiritual possession that ends tragically; and The House of Fearsome Peril, about a homicidal hypnotist. An interesting collection of unpublished plays from the turn of the century. Further details available upon request. .

        THREE MANUSCRIPT DOCUMENTS RELATING TO A PROPOSED PORT FOR THE SOUTHERN COAST OF THE PROVINCE OF SANCTI SPIRITUS].

      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.

        Zur plastischen Chirurgie.

      . Vjschr. prakt. Heilk., 15/4 . - Prag, K. Andre, 1858, 8°, pp.127-159, mit 33 feinen Abbildungen auf 2 doppelblattgr. Falttafeln.. ERSTE AUSGABE. Neben seinem so seltenen Handbuch der Chirurgie von 1870 ist die hier angebotene Arbeit wohl der wichtigste Beitrag des so früh verstorbenen Autors zur Plastischen Chirurgie. - Die Abhandlung beschäftigt sich ausführlich mit der Technik der Rhinoplastik, sowie der Cheiloplastik. Gleich zu Beginn zitiert der Verfasser Lavater.: "Eine schöne Nase ist ein Königreich werth." J.v. Szymanowski (1829-1868) gibt nicht nur eine Fülle von Modifikationen der bestehenden Methoden bekannt, sondern er erweist sich auch als intimer Kenner der einschlägigen Literatur und so gerät die Schrift auch zu einem interessanten Abriss der Entwicklung der Plastischen Chirurgie in der ersten Hälfte des 19.Jahrhunderts. - Szymanowski, der vergessene Pionier der Plastischen Chirurgie, ein großes Talent und ein brillianter Techniker, war neben Pirogoff der bedeutendste Chirurg Russlands. In seinem Fachgebiet hat er ganz Hervorragendes geleistet. Nach Einführung der Narkose erkennt er, daß nicht Schnelligkeit, sondern exakte, gewebeschonende Technik wichtiger sind. Viele von späteren Autoren ohne Quellenangabe beschriebene Techniken stammen aus seinen Schriften. - In Riga 1829 geboren, besuchte er die kaiserl. Universität Dorpat, um von Adelmann, dem Nachfolger des großen Pirogoff, zum Wundarzt ausgebildet zu werden. 1861 geht er als Professor an die damals russische Universität Helsingfors, um 1862 als Professor der operativen Chirurgie an die kaiserl. St. Wladimir-Universität nach Kiew zu wechseln. In seiner glänzenden Privatpraxis konnte Szymanowski dort seine große Arbeitskraft entfalten. An einem Testikel-Carcinom erkrankt, wird er 2 mal von Pirogoff operiert, und stirbt 1868 mit 39 Jahren auf einer Erholungsreise nach Deutschland. - Zeis, Die Literatur u. Geschichte der Plastischen Chirurgie, gibt unter Nr. 602 (Seite 76/77) eine kurze Inhaltsangabe. cf. Gnudi-Webster, G.Tagliacozzi, S.326 + B.O. Rogers, J.v. Szymanowski, His Life and Contribution to Plastic Surgery. In: Plast. & Reconstr. Surg. vol. 64 (1979), pp.465-78.

Expl.: in der "Kinderbuchsammlung der Universitätsbibliothek Braunschweig" **** Berta Filhes Lehmann (* 1819; nach 1887) war Tochter des Gutsbesitzers Filhes in Kammerswaldau und Schriftstellerin. Durch den Verkauf seines Gutes Kammerswaldau war der Vater in einen lange andauernden Prozess verwickelt, dessen Führung schädigenden Einfluss sowohl auf seine Vermögensverhältnisse, als auch auf seine Stimmung zur Folge hatte, doch brachten die Erteilung des Unterrichtes und die Erziehung seiner drei Töchter, welchen Aufgaben er sich mit grösster Gewissenhaftigkeit selbst unterzog, seinen Seelenzustand bald wieder ins Gleichgewicht. Später leitete den Unterricht der drei Töchter, von welchen die genannte Schriftstellerin die jüngste ist, ein Onkel der Kinder, der berühmte Philosoph Rosenkranz. Nach ihrer Verheiratung mit dem Philologen Lehmann erhielt sie die erste Anregung zu ihrer Thätigkeit als Schriftstellerin durch ihre Freundin Elisabeth Ebeling, in deren Gemeinschaft sie mehrere Dramen schrieb. Die Pflichten als Gattin und Mutter nahmen sie jedoch während ihrer vierzehnjährigen Ehe derart in Anspruch, dass sie erst nach dem Tode ihres Gatten sich einer erfolgreichen schriftstellerischen Thätigkeit widmen konnte. Als Witwe lebt die Autorin noch in Berlin. siehe auch:Lexikon deutscher Frauen der Feder.

        Landskapsstudier.

      - Den småländske bondsonen Frans Roselli växte upp vid hemmanet Rosan utanför Eksjö och bildade senare sitt efternamn från gårdsnamnet. Han sattes i lära hos en målarmästare i Eksjö vid 14 års ålder men var ambitiös och blev omkring 1858 elev i Marcus Larsons ‘konstskola' i Flenshult vid Vimmerby. I Axel Gauffins skildring av målarskolan omtalas Roselli som trumslagare och när han 1867 kom till Konstakademien i Stockholm skrevs han in i principskolans matrikel som "f. d. hautboist från Småland" (Axel Gauffin, Marcus Larsson, ett svenskt geni (1943), s. 152. Stockholm, Konstakademien. Principskolans matrikel 1849-1870 nr 2637. Inskriven 5 februari och på nytt 1 november 1867).Roselli var i sitt måleri tydligt påverkad av Marcus Larson och "sökte efterfölja sin mästare i ljuseffekternas bravur" (Ewert Wrangel, Smålands konstnärers utställning i samband med Hantverks- och industriutställningen i Nässjö 21 juni-16 juli 1922 (Nässjö 1922), s. 9). Efter sejouren i Stockholm försökte han sälja sina tavlor i Tyskland, men var inte tillräckligt framgångsrik för att ta sig till Rom som han hoppats. Han insjunkade kort senare i en lungsjukdom och dog vid endast 35 års ålder.Av dessa fina skisser framgår att Roselli var en långt mer framstående tecknare än målare. Men källmaterialet är begränsat. Hans teckningar är sällsynta och tycks inte finnas ens i våra större museer, frånsett ett blad med enkla studier av fötter i Nationalmuseum och en likaledes enkel teckning i Teckningsmuseet i Laholm.I dessa teckningar är inflytandet från Marcus Larson märkbart, åtminstone beträffande motivvalet. Mindre larsonsk är deras odramatiska, nästan rofyllda stämning. Två laverade pennteckningar på ett och samma blad, var och en omgiven av en tecknad ramlinje. Den ena, i liggande format, signerad "Roselli" på en sten i förgrunden, den andra, föreställande ett vattenfall, i stående format. 14 × 20,5 resp. 19 × 12,8 cm. (Bladet 28 × 21,5 cm.) Bladet något smutsat. Oinramad.

        The Italian Valleys of Pennine Alps: a Tour through all the romantic and less-frequented "Vals" of northern Piedmont, from the Tarentaise to the Gries. With illustrations from the Author's sketches, maps, &c.

Piatti telati, taglio di testa dorato. 6 vignette incise n.t., 10 tavv. f.t. a p. pagina in xilografia e 4 carte geografiche ripiegate f.t. incise su acciaio e tratteggiate a colori (del Monte Bianco e dei suoi dintorni, del Monte Rosa e dintorni, di Aosta, delle valli italiane delle Alpi Pennine), il tutto inciso da schizzi presi in loco dall'autore. Tra i luoghi raffigurati: il Monte Rosa dal Col di Campello, il Ghiacciaio della Brenva, Gressonay St.-Jean, la Punta della Grivola, chiese in Macugnaga, etc. Piccoli restauri al dorso. Ottima copia. Prima e unica edizione, non comune, della rievocazione del viaggio compiuto dal reverendo King nelle Alpi Pennine nel 1855, in compagnia della moglie Emma, ricca di osservazioni storico-archeologiche, faunistiche, botaniche, geologiche e sul passaggio delle Alpi da parte di Annibale.

        SCENES OF CLERICAL LIFE (One of Eight Recorded Presentation Copies)

      Edinburgh & London: William Blackwood & Sons, 1858. Eliot, George (Mary Ann Evans). SCENES OF CLERICAL LIFE. In Two Volumes. Edinburgh and London: William Blackwood & Sons, 1858. First Edition, 8vo. Very Good in original publisher's dark maroon morocco cloth decorated in blind and gilt, both volumes well-read and worn yet eye appeal remains. Some expert and subtle restoration was required to strengthen the set and to allow for handling. There is intermittent light foxing throughout. The half-title in Volume One is a tipped-in single inset leaf (as per Sadleir 818) and it has been slightly tugged away from the text block, most likely (one presumes) by repeated examinations of the presentation inscription found thereon. One of only 1,050 copies of the first edition printed in January 1858. SCENES OF CLERICAL LIFE was George Eliot's brilliant debut work of fiction (a collection of three stories which first appeared in Blackwood's Magazine in 1857: "Amos Barton" "Mr. Gilfil's Love-Story" and "Janet's Repentance") and this title remains her rarest first edition in original cloth, ranked #1 on Michael Sadleir's well-known scale of comparative scarcities. ONE OF EIGHT RECORDED PRESENTATION COPIES GIFTED BY THE AUTHOR UPON PUBLICATION with "From The Author" inked with a flourish on Volume One's half-title. This is the copy belonging to one of the eight recipients: fellow author, playwright, and reviewer Albert Richard Smith (1816-1860), with his bookplate on the front paste-down, his inked signature on the front free endpaper, and his marginal notes in pencil. According to her Journals, George Eliot received her author's copies of SCENES OF CLERICAL LIFE on January 5th, 1858 ("Today the Clerical Scenes came in their two-volume dress, very handsome") and on the 8th she had eight review copies delivered, one each to Albert Smith, Charles Dickens, W. M. Thackeray, John Ruskin, William Froude, Sir Arthur Helps, Jane Welsh Carlyle, and Alfred Tennyson. Of the group, only Dickens correctly guessed that "George Eliot" was a woman. While Albert Smith (the playwright who adapted Dickens's stories to the stage and arranged Dickens's 1858 public readings) may seem in exalted company as a gift recipient of Eliot's first novel, it was Smith who was Eliot's first fan, the earliest reviewer to compliment her after reading "Amos Barton" (the first of the three tales) in Blackwood's Magazine. In Eliot's Journals, a letter is cited that she wrote to John Blackwood: "Albert Smith has gratified me more than anything else in connection with the effect of Amos." Previously in her Journals, she had written: "Albert Smith wrote to Blackwood that he had never read anything that affected him so much as the death of Milly." Indeed, in this very copy of the first edition of SCENES OF CLERICAL LIFE, Smith has penciled a note adjacent to Milly's death scene in "Amos Barton" which reads, simply: "Oh! How good." Unfortunately, the brevity of the inscription (three short words and a flourish) doesn't allow for an unqualified declaration that the inscription is in the author's hand (as opposed to that of the recipient or that of the publisher) despite all compelling evidence examined (her letters, her manuscripts). Nevertheless, this is a REMARKABLE ASSOCIATION COPY fully recorded, not just by a bibliographer, but by the author herself. While the author of SCENES OF CLERICAL LIFE went on to make literary history with ADAM BEDE, MILL ON THE FLOSS, SILAS MARNER, MIDDLEMARCH, and DANIEL DERONDA, this seminal work of fiction, with its darkly realistic and unflattering portraits of England's clergy, was the stunning fictional debut that launched both her reputation and her extraordinary career as one of the greatest literary figures of all time.

        Physiologische Untersuchungen mit Garcia's Kehlkopfspiegel.

      . S.ber. Akad. Wiss. Wien, 29/12. - Wien, Karl Gerold & Sohn, 1858, 8°, (2), 30 pp., 3 lith. Tafeln, orig. broschiertes Exemplar.. Very rare ofprint of the first edition - of the first major publication of Laryngology! - Johann Nepomuk Czermak (1828-1873) "was the first to demonstrate the utility of the laryngoscope invented by Garcia. He substituted artificial light for sunlight and made other improvements". - In 1858 Ludwig Türck (1810-1868) and Czermak made laryngoskopy serve clinical practice. Within a very short period of time this new method of using a little laryngela mirror to carry out laryngoscopies by means of reflected light became popular and from Vienna went around the globe. Therefore, Leopold Schrötter von Kristelli (1837-1903) in his "Festive Address on the Occasion of the Türck-Czermak-Commemoration" held on the First International Congress of Laryngo-Rhinologists in Vienna in 1908, did not exaggerate when stating: "In my opinion the most important event of the last century in the field of medicine was the abandonment of the philosophical speculative point if view and the turn toward scientific methods. Concerning scientific methods I would place the invention of the laryngoscope in its important next to the invention of the ophthalmoscope, subcutaneous injection, anti- and asepsis, the development of bacteriology, the introduction of serum and organotherapy, the later of which based on the knowledge of the inner secretion, and radiology. ... Young physicians would not believe how helpless pour patients and we physicians were before the invention of the laryngoscope. Thousand of people died because we were unable to cure them or even relieve their sufferings! How tings have changed! Almost every branch of medicine profited greatly by the introduction of the laryngoscope..." This is the first major document to "The Turckish War", which kept laryngology in suspense for a long time, was according to Hermann Marschik finally ended "By attributing to both men their merits as they deserve them: Türckis now credited for having founded laryngology as a specialty and Czermak as the founder of laryngoscopy with artificial light and as the first pioneer of the young science, due to whose resourcefulness, eloquence and experience in the ways of the world the specialty conquered the world at least twenty even thirty years sooner that it otherwise might have." - Majer, E.H. & Skopec, M.: History of Oto-Rhino-Laryngology in Austria (1985) pp.53-58; Lesky, E.: Die Wiener medizin. Schule im 19.Jhdt. pp.191-195; Marschik, H.: Geschichte der Wiener laryngorhinologischen Gesellschaft..., Wien.klin.Wschr. 39 (1929), pp.334-336, 361-363, 355; - Garrison & Morton No.3331; Waller 2260.

        PAROISSIEN ROMAIN D'APRÈS LES IMPRIMÉS FRANÇAIS DU XVME SIÈCLE

      Gruel et Englemann, Paris 1858 - 162 x 95 mm (6 3/8 x 3 3/4"). 703, [1] pp. EXQUISITE TAN ELABORATELY INLAID MOSAIC MOROCCO BY CHAMBOLLE-DURU, GILDED BY MARIUS MICHEL (with both binders' names stamp-signed on the front doublure, along with the date "1868"), COVERS WITH gilt-rule and dogtooth borders enclosing A FIELD OF DIAPERED INLAYS, each comprised of an ogival centerpiece of gilt-tooled black morocco with a four-petaled flower of red morocco; raised bands, spine compartments similarly gilt and inlaid, black morocco label, SCARLET MOROCCO DOUBLURES framed by a decorative gilt roll with a distinctive bird motif, heraldic device at center, marbled flyleaves, all edges gilt. In a (lightly rubbed) black morocco-trimmed slipcase. With printer's device, wood-engraved title page, full-page section headings, an elaborately historiated and compartmented border to each page, 33 engraved plates, and A GRACEFUL ORIGINAL WATERCOLOR OF THE CRUCIFIXION ON VELLUM. Except for a hint of darkening to the spine, A MAGNIFICENT COPY, entirely clean and fresh internally, and in an absolutely sparkling binding. This is a splendid dated mosaic binding, a dazzling collaboration executed by three of the greatest 19th century French names in the field. A rough contemporary of, and certainly the equal in technique to, binders like Trautz, Marius-Michel père, Lortic, and Cuzin, the elder Chambolle served his apprenticeship under Hippolyte Duru, and later formed a partnership with him. Duncan & De Bartha says that this collaboration began "at some point" and suggests that the partnership was formed after Chambolle established a premises at 20 rue de Savoie in 1873, but the date of our binding seems to indicate that the two binders had worked together, at least for a period, before that time. Chambolle's son continued the business when his father retired in 1898, and although the firm "showed a cautious recognition of the . . . preoccupation with Art Nouveau," classical work was always the mainstay of the Chambolle bindery. (Duncan & De Bartha) In "Modern Bookbindings," Sarah Prideaux says of her contemporary, "Chambolle most worthily continues the traditions associated with the name of his father. As an interpreter of the past, he has a place apart and almost untouched by the main revolutionary movement that has penetrated nearly every atelier in Paris, and modified, if not overturned, its inherited traditions. To him are confided the classics of former times, which he clothes in the styles appropriate to them, keeping to a simplicity of ornamentation which reveals great taste and feeling for composition." Gilder Marius Michel the younger and his father were responsible for some of the most beautifully gilded French bindings produced between the 1850s (when Michel the elder was the chief doreur for Capé) and the early part of the 20th century. Our binding is a testament to the glory of Chambolle-Duru and a glimpse of the younger Marius Michel early in his career. While the binding is the story here, the illustrations--especially the original watercolor on vellum and the page frames done in the style of late 15th and early 16th century printed Books of Hours--are a pleasing feature worth acknowledging. For a discussion of the origins and early development of the mosaic binding, see item #52, above. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Zur plastischen Chirurgie.

      - Vjschr. prakt. Heilk., 15/4 . - Prag, K. André, 1858, 8°, pp.127-159, mit 33 feinen Abbildungen auf 2 doppelblattgr. Falttafeln. ERSTE AUSGABE. Neben seinem so seltenen Handbuch der Chirurgie von 1870 ist die hier angebotene Arbeit wohl der wichtigste Beitrag des so früh verstorbenen Autors zur Plastischen Chirurgie. - Die Abhandlung beschäftigt sich ausführlich mit der Technik der Rhinoplastik, sowie der Cheiloplastik. Gleich zu Beginn zitiert der Verfasser Lavater.: "Eine schöne Nase ist ein Königreich werth." J.v. Szymanowski (1829-1868) gibt nicht nur eine Fülle von Modifikationen der bestehenden Methoden bekannt, sondern er erweist sich auch als intimer Kenner der einschlägigen Literatur und so gerät die Schrift auch zu einem interessanten Abriss der Entwicklung der Plastischen Chirurgie in der ersten Hälfte des 19.Jahrhunderts. - Szymanowski, der vergessene Pionier der Plastischen Chirurgie, ein großes Talent und ein brillianter Techniker, war neben Pirogoff der bedeutendste Chirurg Russlands. In seinem Fachgebiet hat er ganz Hervorragendes geleistet. Nach Einführung der Narkose erkennt er, daß nicht Schnelligkeit, sondern exakte, gewebeschonende Technik wichtiger sind. Viele von späteren Autoren ohne Quellenangabe beschriebene Techniken stammen aus seinen Schriften. - In Riga 1829 geboren, besuchte er die kaiserl. Universität Dorpat, um von Adelmann, dem Nachfolger des großen Pirogoff, zum Wundarzt ausgebildet zu werden. 1861 geht er als Professor an die damals russische Universität Helsingfors, um 1862 als Professor der operativen Chirurgie an die kaiserl. St. Wladimir-Universität nach Kiew zu wechseln. In seiner glänzenden Privatpraxis konnte Szymanowski dort seine große Arbeitskraft entfalten. An einem Testikel-Carcinom erkrankt, wird er 2 mal von Pirogoff operiert, und stirbt 1868 mit 39 Jahren auf einer Erholungsreise nach Deutschland. - Zeis, Die Literatur u. Geschichte der Plastischen Chirurgie, gibt unter Nr. 602 (Seite 76/77) eine kurze Inhaltsangabe. cf. Gnudi-Webster, G.Tagliacozzi, S.326 + B.O. Rogers, J.v.

Commentaries on the Constitution of the United States: With a Preliminary Review of the Constitutional History of the Colonies and States, Before the Adoption of the Constitution. Boston: Little, Brown and Company, 1858. Two volumes. 8, xxxiii, [ii], 735; [ii], 702 pp. (Eight-page publisher catalogue at beginning of Volume I.) Octavo (9" x 5-1/2"). Recent period-style quarter calf over cloth, raised bands, retaining original red morocco lettering pieces, endpapers renewed. Light to moderate toning, negligible foxing to a few leaves, some offsetting to margins of Volume I title page, internally clean. A nice copy in a handsome binding. * Third edition. First published in 1833, this work is probably the most important work written on the American Constitution. Though overshadowed by Marshall on the U.S. Supreme Court, Story had no peer as a teacher or writer. Comparing the Commentaries to The Federalist, James Kent observed that Story's treatise was "written in the same free and liberal spirit, with equal exactness and soundness of doctrine, and with great beauty and eloquence of composition. Whoever seeks for a complete history and exposition of this branch of our jurisprudence, will have recourse to the above work, which is written with great candor, and characterized by extended research, and a careful examination of the vital principles upon which our government reposes" (cited in Marvin, Legal Bibliography [1847] 669-670).

        ALS to her son Philip Gidley King

      January 4, 1858. Four page letter on a single leaf folded in half; 220mm x180mm. Death, annuities and the blinding heat. A letter from Harriet King, matriarch, and the widow of Phillip Parker King, to her eldest son Philip Gidley King. Often bemoaning the heat and apologising to her son for her "shabby note", she nonetheless addresses the scope of King family business in the wake of Christmas and New Year celebrations. Harrriet was widely regarded as an able admimistrator of her husband's considerable property holdings often in his lengthy absence. In this regard she was not unlike that other remarkable colonial figure, Elizabeth Macarthur (her daughter-in-law's aunt). She comiserates with her son on the death of Hugh Gordon, husband to her neice Mary King Macarthur. There was much intermarriage between the sizable King, Macarthur and Lethbridge clans, despite the fact that the two progenitors, John Macarthur and Governor Philip Gidley King had had a fairly well-exercised dislike for one another. The letter goes on to note the infirmity of Janie (her son Frederic's wife: they had married the prevous year) and how touched she was by her daughter 'Libby's' gift and how she longed to see her grandchildren. Harriet quite openly discusses the business of annuities-and the difficulties of managing cashflow. 'Till Grantham was let I could not ask either John or Frederic to pay me'and is troubled by her son Frederic's waning business fortunes 'the interest he has to pay may swamp him'. In 1851 Gidley King had been appointed superintendent of stock for the Australian Agricultural Co., but with the discovery of of gold on the bed of the Peel River in 1852 and the indication that much of the land on the Peel could be auriferous he moved with his family to Goonoo Goonoo south of Tamworth. The resultant gold rush, whilst not bringing with it the dramatic change wrought on Victoria, nonetheless had a profound impact on the King family business and social order especially prior to the issue of mining licenses. At the time of Harriet's letter, labour for the traditional pastoral pursuits would have been in short supply and the demands on her son's time fierce. A casual letter by a loving but weary mother, touching on the workings of three prominent colonial dynasties.
