        The MINER'S OWN BOOK, Containing Correct Illustrations and Descriptions of the Various Modes of California Mining, Including All the Improvements Introduced from the Earliest Days to the Present Time

      San Francisco: Published by Hutchings & Rosenfield, 146 Montgomfry [sic] Street, 1858. 1st Edition (Cowan I, p. 154; Cowan II, p. 431; Graff 2813; Greenwood 967; Howes M639; Kurutz 444a; Norris 547; Rocq 15965; Streeter 2839; Wheat 141). Publisher's original printed brown paper wrappers, sewn. Image of miner with pick to center front wrapper. Some age-toning & staining to paper. A few leaves with short horizontal splits to fore-edge, no doubt from 'thumbing'. At top of front wrapper, ownership signature of Matthew Leggett, who is presumed to be the individual employed with Bayley & Cramer, San Francisco photographers, during this period. A VG copy.. 32 pp. Illustrated with 30 cuts [1 to front wrapper, 2 adverts, 27 intratextual] by Charles Christian Nahl. this copy with the p. 23 cut, "Washing the Blankets", correctly oriented. 8vo. 9" x 5-3/4" Published by Hutchings, and thought to be by him the "first book of its kind", and presumed to have been issued for the Fraser river miners [per Cowan]. Much of the material first appeared in his Illustrated California Magazine for 1856 & 1857. The illustrations by Nahl, considered California's first significant artist, are "now recognized as classics." [Kurutz]. Regarding the inverted cut 'point', we quote a 1939 Midland catalogue on this issue, "A point without a point; for the book bears ample evidence of having been printed direct from type. In which case it is a safe assumption that the woodcut was correctly set in the first place; dropped out while in use, and was replaced up-side-down; the error not being discovered until a number of sheets had been run. As evidence of priority of issue we would suggest that the printed line, above the woodcut in the present copy, is coincident with the edge of the block, and thus demonstrates that the block was out of place---probably loose---at the time the sheet in this copy was printed. Anyway we’ll take our illustrations standing up, and we resent the intrusion of these half-baked typographical 'points' into the glorious field of Americana. So there! Mr. Cowan." In our opinion, Midland has a point about this point. ABPC shows no copies to auction these last 30+ years, with RBH showing their last in 1957, as offered by Goodspeed. Curiously enough, RBH does not record the Streeter copy, sold in 1968. Even so, given this track record, we feel comfortable saying, "Quite rare in the trade."

        A compendium of Kafir laws and customs,

      8vo., vii (1) 168pp., with three folding tables, original green cloth with printed spine label (the label largely defective, however), with an old light stain on upper cover. A very good presentation copy inscribed in ink by Maclean to Robert Vigne*, and with a coy note in a contemporary hand at head of title: "Not altogether fit for ladies". "This volume, the results of the author's efforts to form a compilation of facts concerning the native races, is regarded as one of the best in the subject, and contains many valuable papers by the Rev. H.H. Dugmore, and Messrs. Warner, Brownlee, and Ayliff. The geography, government, laws, and customs of the natives are fully described, and the mass of information thus presented is extremely useful to students of the habits of the aborigines of South Africa. The genealogical tables assist in explaining the somewhat complex system of the Kaffir laws of inheritance and descent, and a census of British Kaffraria in 1857 is appended." [Mendelssohn, loc.cit.] * Robert Vigne was one of the magistrates in British Kaffraria.

In 1846, tiring of routine, Tempsky left the regiment after only nine months for the Prussian settlement on the Mosquito Coast of Central America. He accepted a commission to command a force of Mosquito Indians, which had been set up by Britain. In 1850 he went to the new California goldfields, but did not strike gold. In 1853 he returned to the Prussian colony, via Mexico, Guatemala, and Salvador, and later wrote a book, Mitla, about his journey.

Neuner 785. Wurzbach LIII, 262 ff.: "Bedeutsamer aber denn als Poet, Kunstrichter, Journalist und Localreferent und so zu sagen bahnbrechend erscheint er als Topograph und Tourist. . Seine topographischen Schriften über Oesterreich und die Steiermark werden für Leute, die abseits der Bahnen die Herrlichkeiten aufsuchen, heute und noch lange ihren Werth behalten, da sie immer genaue und interessante Angaben enthalten". - Im Dezember 1858 wurde die Strecke von Wien bis Linz der Westbahn (damals noch k. k. priv.

        The Life of Sir John Falstaff. Illustrated by George Cruickshank. With a Biography of the Knight from Authentic Sources.

      London; Longman Brown Green Longmans and Roberts 1st edition 1858 - Large 8vo [text block 250 x 170mm], 20 plates including frontispiece, xx, 196pp, later (late 19th century or early 20th) full green crushed morocco by Zaehnsdorf, the boards gilt ruled with large, elaborate corners of flowers, stems, dots etc, the spine with gilt ruled raised bands, the gilt lettering direct in two gilt panelled compartments, the remaining four compartments fully and finely gilt decorated with circles, dots, flower heads etc, board edges gilt ruled with some floral decoration, top edge gilt the other edges untrimmed, turn-ins with gilt rules, dots and gilt flowers, saffron silk endpapers; binder's oval blind stamp on rear pastedown signifying the binding to be of exhibition quality. Bookplate on front pastedown. Some very slight browning of text; upper hinge just starting along topmost compartment, else a fine and beautifully bound copy. Remembered for his satirical and serious work, Robert Barnabas Brough (1828–60) was a playwright, journalist, poet and founder member of the Savage Club. With a series of inspired etchings by the celebrated artist George Cruikshank (1792–1878), this is a delightful fictional biography, 'from authentic sources', of that most colourful of Shakespeare's characters. We hear how our hero was descended from the great Saxon leader Hundwulf Falstaff, how the name is a corruption of 'False-thief', of his adventures with his beloved Prince Hal, and of Christmas 1412 with the Whittington family. Henry V's terrible rejection of him – 'I know thee not, old man' – is touchingly depicted, as is the episode of the laundry basket and other misadventures at Windsor, along with his sad death at the Boar's Head in 1415.

        A Personal Narrative of The Siege of Lucknow.

      London: Longman, Brown, Green, Longmans and Roberts. 1858., 1858. First edition. 8vo. 380pp. Publisher's orange embossed cloth titled in gilt to spine. Bright and sharp, slight bumping to spine ends and corners, minor edgewear, very good indeed, a very pretty copy. Internally clean, brown, glazed endpapers with ads to pastedowns, Edwards and Remnants bindery label to rear pastedown, evidence of the removal of a similar label to the front pastedown. Portrait frontispiece of Sir Henry Lawrence looking somewhat grim, perhaps unsurprisingly. Minor offsetting to title page. With folding map of the Residency and surrounding city. An eyewitness account by a civilian present in the Residency for the duration of the siege, or sieges if you wish to be more picky, and its subsequent liberation. Often viewed as a measurement of British fighting resolve during the enormous blow that was what is referred to as the Sepoy Mutiny of 1857 (also referred to as the First Indian War of Independence); the city was held, taken, lost and retaken at a cost of 2500 men, the final day's fighting of the lifting of the siege created no less than 24 Victoria Cross recipients, more than any other action in British military history. A handsome copy of a book more usually seen looking rather more mutinous.

        Collection des Orchidées les plus remarquables de l'Archipel Indien et du Japon.

      Ouvrage dédié à sa Majesté Guillaume I Roi de Wurtemberg. Amsterdam, C.G. Sulpke, 1858. Folio (454 x 290mm). pp. (6), vi, 190, with hand-coloured lithographed frontispiece and 70 (56 hand-coloured & 1 double-page) lithographed plates. Contemporary half green morocco, richly gilt ornamented spine in 6 compartments with red gilt lettered label (hinges skilfully repaired). Almost identical with and published at the same time as the first volume of the supplement to Blume's "Flora Javae", written in Latin. Blume was director of the Buitenzorg Botanic Garden and later became director of the State Herbarium at Leyden. "This work was elaborately illustrated by some of the most beautiful colored plates and most meticulous floral analyses to be found among the literature of the Old World orchids ... indispensable aids to investigators of the orchids of the entire East Indies."(Reinikka. History of Orchids, pp. 147-148). The first major work on the orchids of the Dutch East Indies and Japan. For the description of the orchids of Japan, Blume was helped by Von Siebold who gave him original drawings of Japanese orchids by Japanese botanists. "J'ai profité des communications de M. De Siebold pour comparer de même les 'Orchidées du Japon' avec celles de l'Archipel Indien. La tâche était difficile; mais j'eus encore ici la bonne fortune de pouvoir m'aider de dessins originaux dus au pinceau de botanistes japonais aussi instruits qu'habiles en leur art, que M. de Siebold voulut bien mettre à ma disposition" (From the introduction). Most of the beautiful illustrations are done after drawings by A.J. Wendel and are all lithographed by G. Severeyns, the best botanical lithographer of its time. One page with an old library stamp in the margin. A fine copy of this important and rare work.//Cordier. Bibl. Japonica 538; Nissen BBI, 175.
