        REMINISCENCES OF AULD LANG SYNE [manuscript title, including a chapter of adapted California Fiction entitled "WESTWARD HO"]

      Camp Nusseerabad, India., 1860. Original three-quarter calf and marbled boards. Boards edgeworn and lightly rubbed. Internally quite clean, neat, and legible. Very good. An interesting unpublished manuscript, this is a novel in the form of an autobiography, purportedly written by an American-born soldier in the British Army stationed in India in the late 1850s and early 1860s. The author describes his youth and early adulthood, culminating with an account of his adventures hunting grizzlies in Gold Rush-era California. The chapter on Grizzly hunting in California, called "Westward Ho," is copied (with a few small adaptations) from an article that appeared in the November 1857 issue of HARPER'S NEW MONTHLY MAGAZINE, called "The Grizzly Bear of California." The remainder of the text develops several themes over the course of the work, including the author's strained relationship with his wealthy father, his youthful disillusionment with a career as a lawyer, his friendship with a charming rogue named "Twadle," and his unsuccessful pursuit of love. The work also gently lampoons the character of the idle rich. It is unknown whether these other portions of the manuscript are also adapted from other published works, or whether they are the product of the author's own imagination. Either way, this manuscript is a very interesting example of mid-19th-century imaginative fiction and literary adaptation, and worthy of further study. According to prefatory material, this text was written in 1859-60 by Douglas D. Lindsay, who identifies himself as a member of Company 7 of Her Majesty's 83rd Regiment, stationed in East India at "Camp Nusseerabad." On a preliminary page he writes: "These 'Reminiscences of Auld Lang Syne' were written and presented by the author to his friend and gossip, Thomas Smith of Her Majesty's 83rd Regiment and who, in times to come, as he glances over these pages, will recall to mind the writer and 'wish him well, wherever fate may have led him'; and he, in turn, will often think of his quondam friend, while far at sea or in the deep piney woods of his native land." In several instances in the text, Lindsay disrupts the narrative to offer asides to Smith, providing a sort of post-modern authorial commentary on the proceedings. In a letter at the end of the text, dated July 23, 1860, Lindsay promises Smith that he will write a second volume "in which I propose giving you a few more passages from my experience in America - North - West and South, intermixt with some jottings about the sea, slavers, smugglers, etc. etc." It is not known whether "Lindsay" ever wrote this second volume. In the prefatory chapter Lindsay gives a sketch of his early life, claiming to have been born "of a very ancient family who are said to be descended in right line from the Prodigal Son." He writes that he did not have a good relationship with his father, and most of the assistance in his life was given to him by his deceased mother's brother. Lindsay says he eventually went to "the law school of old Y..." (later revealed to be Yale), from which he graduated with a lofty idea of the law and jurisprudence. These beliefs were quickly deflated when he moved to the unnamed state's capitol city and set to work as a lawyer. Finding himself quickly in debt and unhappy, he quit the law and moved back home. The next chapter in the book is entitled "A Screw Loose" and begins with Lindsay arguing with his father and being kicked out of the house. He departs, leaving behind him most of his expensive wardrobe, and ventures out in search of a friend named Twadle: "A young literary gentleman who was continually occupying the handsomest apartments he could find which he invariably vacated after a month of luxury. He was of a sanguine temperament and I will do him the justice to say that he always intended at the time of taking his rooms to pay for them. But so many extraordinary and unforeseen circumstances intervened between the day of his induction and pay-day, that when that period arrived he regularly found himself in a state of unprecedented pecuniary depletion." Twadle was living in New York at the time, and he and Lindsay decide to have a meal at Delmonico's. Of course, they do not have enough money to pay the bill, but Lindsay is rescued by his ever-helpful uncle, who just happened to be dining there that evening. His uncle then takes Lindsay to his home, welcomes him as a part of the family, and gives him a job in his engineering firm. In the next chapter, titled "Love Struck by Lightening," Lindsay describes his landlady's attempts to introduce him to eligible young women, and his courtship with Sophia Walter, daughter of a former governor. The romance fails when Lindsay discovers that his love has false teeth, which horrifies him. The penultimate chapter (comprising forty-one pages of the manuscript), entitled "Westward Ho," is set in California during the Gold Rush era, and is largely copied or adapted from a HARPER'S article of November 1857 called "The Grizzly Bear of California." Large portions of the manuscript are copied verbatim from the published article, while in other places Lindsay makes adaptations or particularizes the story to himself. For example, he mentions a "Hindoo Bear" in one passage, and changes the name of the Grizzly hunter from "Colin Preston" in the published article to "Nathan Walker" in his manuscript. He also intersperses original passages which add to the story, among the copied text. The section begins with Lindsay and a friend leaving Manhattan aboard a steamer bound for Chagres, and then crossing the Isthmus of Panama. Lindsay then goes up the coast to Acapulco, where he "secured passage in a crazy old polacca rigged schooner which was bound direct to San Francisco." The schooner is wrecked off the California coast, with Lindsay as the only survivor. Next comes a long discussion of the California Grizzly, and the "coastal range" in which it dwells, followed by a recounting of Lindsay's providential escape from the shipwreck. He is rescued by a bear hunter called "Nathan Walker" ("Colin Preston" in the original HARPER'S story), a native of Arkansas, who is described at great length. The rest of the chapter is filled with tales of Walker's bear-hunting exploits, discussions of the nature of the Grizzly, and the recollection of bear hunts in which the author participated with Walker, often at great risk to his own life. In the final chapter (comprising twelve pages and called "The Man in the Drab Coat") Lindsay tells a story of meeting an old Yale classmate of his in the Russian River gold diggings. His friend, Robert, had been quite successful in the mines, saving some $5000, but was gravely ill and soon died. Lindsay promises him that he will collect all his money and deliver it to Robert's mother in the East. On his way home, Lindsay stops in New Orleans and loses all of his own money in the gambling halls, and leaves the city saddled with debt. Back in Troy, New York he considers drawing on his friend Robert's money, using it as a gambling stake to win back the money he lost in New Orleans. Late one night, cold and seemingly hallucinating, he is visited by a devilish figure, "the man in the drab coat," who so frightens Lindsay that he resolves to give all Robert's money to his family, as he had promised. An interesting work of adaptive and imaginative fiction, meriting further research.

        THE INDIAN CAPTIVE. A NARRATIVE OF ADVENTURES AND SUFFERINGS OF MATTHEW BRAYTON, IN HIS THIRTY-FOUR YEARS OF CAPTIVITY AMONG THE INDIANS OF NORTH-WESTERN AMERICA

      Cleveland, 1860. 12mo. Original half muslin and printed paper boards. Hinges tender. Boards a bit soiled, worn at spine ends. Contemporary ownership inscription on front free endpaper. A few fox marks, but generally clean and fresh internally. A very good copy. In a cloth clamshell case, leather label. A rare Indian captivity, not in Ayer or Field. Brayton was stolen near his home in Ohio in 1825 and sold to the Pottawatomi, who took him to Michigan, where he lived among the Winnebago, Chippewa, and Sioux. The latter took him west, where he was again sold, this time to the Snake Indians, who adopted him into their tribe. Brayton apparently lived among the Snake on the upper Missouri River, following them to California, where he remained some five years. He describes fighting the Blackfeet in Oregon, as well as his extraordinary thirty-four years of wandering all over the West. He finally reconciled himself to civilization, enlisted in the army in 1861, and was killed at Pittsburgh Landing in 1862. "Extraordinary as the incidents appear, there is abundant proof of its entire truth" - Thomson. "It is quite true that it would not have been possible for Brayton to have made some of the movements described among the tribes named. On the other hand the critics have overlooked the fact that Brayton was taken at the age of seven and lived among the Indians for thirty-four years. He could not read or write, and spoke English with some difficulty...There remains not the slightest doubt that Matthew was a Brayton, and his narrative is, in general, correct" - Wessen. "One of the most remarkable and - in spite of its relatively late publication date - one of the rarest items belonging to captivity literature" - Howes. This account is sometimes attributed to John H.A. Bone, who may have assisted Brayton in setting forth the narrative. An extraordinary account, rarely met with, and hardly ever encountered in an original binding.

So hat die Technik selbstverständlich in die Darstellungen Einzug gehalten, aber auch die Kleidung der Menschen ist "modern" (falls historische Darstellungen dies nicht verbieten), und in den verschiedenen Auflagen des Werks ist festellbar, dass z.B. die Frauenmode immer wieder auf den Stand der Zeit gebracht wurde. - Titel von Tl. 1 mit Fehlstellen in den Rändern, fleckig u. ganz aufgezogen u.

        Chamonix. Traversée de la Mer de Glace. Photographie originale.

      S.d., vers 1860-70, - 22.5 x 13.5 cm, montée sur carton (39 x 26.5 cm). Un précieux document de l?état du glacier vers 1870. Aujourd?hui, au même endroit, il ne reste qu?une moraine. La Mer de Glace est le deuxième plus important glacier des Alpes, après le glacier d'Aletsch. En longueur, ce glacier est toutefois devancé, outre le glacier d'Aletsch, par le glacier de Fiesch situé en Suisse. La Mer de Glace présente un attrait touristique certain: les touristes peuvent y accéder aisément grâce au chemin de fer du Montenvers inaugurée en 1909. Le site du Montenvers, situé un peu en amont de la langue terminale du glacier, offre un excellent point de vue sur la Mer de Glace. Aux XVIIIe et XIXe siècles, le glacier descendait jusque dans la vallée, au niveau du village des Bois. Pour cette raison, il se nommait glacier des Bois, appellation qui subsiste encore parfois de nos jours. Notons toutefois que le glacier des Bois désignait surtout la partie du glacier qui s'épanchait dans la vallée. En 1741, deux voyageurs britanniques, William Windham et Richard Pococke se rendent au Montenvers, et baptisent du nom de Mer de Glace la partie « haute » du glacier. Aujourd'hui, la partie « basse » du glacier a complètement disparue. L'épaisseur du glacier était également beaucoup plus importante. Cela permettait de le traverser assez facilement au niveau du Montenvers, pour atteindre l'autre rive (droite), aujourd'hui rendue beaucoup plus difficile d'accès. On y faisait même passer des troupeaux, qui rejoignaient ainsi ses alpages situés en contrebas de l'aiguille Verte et des Drus, via un passage escarpé sur la rive droite, appelé Mauvais Pas ou Maupas. À l'heure actuelle, le glacier perd, chaque année, de 4 à 6 mètres d'épaisseur et une trentaine de long. Entre 1905 et 2005, la mer de Glace a perdu 120 m d'épaisseur.Photographe genevois important du XIXème siècle, mais quasiment oublié, Auguste Garcin est surtout actif dans le domaine de la photographie touristique, produisant des vues des sites les plus visités de Suisse, Savoie, et Midi de la France. La Suisse, la Savoie (indépendante jusqu'en 1860), les Alpes, le Midi de la France, ainsi que la mer, font partie du circuit touristique européen emprunté par les classes bourgeoises enrichies grâce au commerce et à l'industrie, à une époque où le chemin de fer a réduit les distances sur le continent.

        CATLIN THE CELEBRATED INDIAN TRAVELLER AND ARTIST, FIRING HIS COLT'S REPEATING RIFLE BEFORE A TRIBE OF CARIB INDIANS IN SOUTH AMERICA

      London, 1860. A few repaired tears. Very good. An excellent and rare color lithograph featuring George Catlin firing a Colt repeating rifle. When the United States Senate rejected an 1852 bill proposing the purchase for the nation of George Catlin's "Indian Gallery," the artist was bankrupted and lost virtually all of the paintings and drawings that he had used in his exhibitions. In order to raise funds Catlin proposed an expedition to market Samuel Colt's firearms. Colt was eager to publicize his new revolving pistols and rifles and to have them adopted by the United States Army, and he commissioned Catlin to "paint a series of twelve pictures showing Colts being employed in the field. The terms of their agreement are unclear, but Catlin completed the order by 1857, and the Colt Patent Fire- Arms Manufacturing Company subsequently used the paintings in its advertising" (Dippie). "Six of the paintings were turned into lithographs, but few sets seem to have been made" - Miles & Reese. The set, all drawn in Catlin's distinctive style, show the artist using Colt firearms in the wilds of both North and South America. The plates were printed in London by Day & Son, the best known British lithographic printers of the period; Catlin's images were drawn on stone by J. M'Gahey of Chester, England. These prints are not in any of the standard bibliographies, and the only other recorded holdings are in the Colt Firearms Collection (Connecticut State Library in Hartford), the Amon Carter Museum, Yale University (the Paul Mellon set), and the Wadsworth Athenaeum. Text beneath the image reads: "It having been reported by one of my party that I had a Medicine Gun, which would fire all day without reloading, the Men, Women & Children, assembled in front of the Chief's Lodge to get a sight of it, - when I found it necessary to make an exhibition - and arranged a target at a suitable distance whe[re I to]ok my position / in front of the crowd rapidly discharging all the chambers, and cocked the piece for a continuation, but the chief advanced and assured me they were all satisfied, and I had better save my powder and balls, as I might want them, on a very long journey.

First Edition. - Gustav Theodor Fechner (1801-1887) "founded the science of psychophysics, which applies the laws of mathematical physics to the physiology of sensation. In his Elemente der Psychophysik, Fechner placed the methodology of this new science on a sound footing by developing three of its basic methods: the method of limits (just noticeable differences); the method of constant stimuli; and the method of average error. 'His greatest contribution was his creation of a scale of sensation, a scale that measured sensation as something different from the stimulus so that the relation of the magnitude of the stimulus to the magnitude of the consequent sensation could be determined. That determination came to be known as Fechner's law., the rule that the magnitude of the sensation is proportional to the logarithm of its stimulus [S = C log R]. Theretofore there had been no strictly objective measurement, and the new scientific psychology, just ready to be founded, hailed this achievement as its warrant and safe-conduct" Herrnstein & Boring, Sourcebook in the History of Psychology, p. 67 - "In effect, a major portion of Elemente is a handbook on experimental design, the most comprehensive treatment of that topic before R. A. Fisher's 1935 Design of Experiments" (Stigler, History of Statistics, p. 244; pp. 242-254. - Garrison-Morton 4972; Norman 771 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        SPEECH OF HON. ABRAHAM LINCOLN, AT THE COOPER INSTITUTE, NEW YORK, FEBRUARY 27, 1860., VINDICATING THE PRINCIPLES OF THE NATIONALITY OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY. LETTER OF JUDGE EDWARD BATES, OF MISSOURI, ENDORSING ABRAHAM LINCOLN AND HANNIBAL HAMLIN

      [San Francisco, 1860. Printed self-wrappers. Two horizontal creases, with slight separation along the creases on the front wrapper. Center portion of front wrapper tanned. Very good. In a brown half morocco and cloth box, spine gilt. This is apparently the only contemporary separate printing of Lincoln's Cooper Union speech west of the Mississippi. The speech, given in New York in February 1860, catapulted Lincoln into the public eye and made him a viable presidential candidate. The final page carries an advertisement dated August 2, 1860 for the San Francisco Republican campaign newspaper, the MAUL AND WEDGE, which had just commenced publication. Lincoln and the Republicans narrowly won California in the 1860 election. This printing is not in Monaghan, and OCLC locates only two copies, at the California State Library and Harvard. The Boston Athenaeum catalogue notes an 1860 printing by the "Santa Cruz News, for the Santa Cruz Republican Club," but we are unaware of any newspaper by that name in Santa Cruz, California in 1860, nor does that printing appear in Greenwood.

      Dixon & Edwards, 1856-, New York 1860 - First edition, Octavo, three volumes. Original cloth. A Journey In The Seaboard Slave states is inscribed by the author to his cousin Charles Olmsted. The cloth has been sympathetically rebacked. The remaining two volumes are in very good condition. Books inscribed by Frederick Law Olmsted, the father of American Landscape Architecture, are rare. Interested in the slave economy, he was commissioned by the New York Daily Times (now The New York Times) to embark on an extensive research journey through the American South and Texas from 1852 to 1857. His dispatches to the Times were collected into three volumes (A Journey in the Seaboard Slave States (1856),A Journey Through Texas (1857), A Journey in the Back Country in the Winter of 1853-4 (1860) which remain vivid first-person social documents of the pre-war South.

        Cospicuo carteggio ottocentesco, inedito, di grande rilevanza risorgimentale, intercorso tra importanti personaggi, quali Giuseppe Garibaldi, Francesco Crispi, Giovanni Nicotera, Felletti, Benigno Paraviso, Stirling Begbie, e alcuni membri della famiglia Orlando. 1860-1883.

      - Significativo lotto di 18 missive inedite, così articolato: a) un biglietto autografo di Giuseppe Garibaldi (Nizza, 1807-1882), inviato da Roma in data 19 febbraio 1873, a mò di lettera di presentazione di tal Semenza; b) 5 lunghe lettere autografe di Francesco Crispi (Ribera, 1818-1901), quattro delle quali in busta affrancata e viaggiata, inviate fra il 1872 e il 1874 a Luigi Orlando, in cui si parla di argomenti personali, di questioni economiche e di investimenti e pagamenti bancari; c) 3 lettere e un biglietto autografi, datati 1875 e 1883, di pugno di Giovanni Nicotera (Sambiase, 1828-1894) a Luigi Orlando; d) Due lettere autografe di Benigno Paraviso inviate a Paolo Orlando in data 11 e 21 luglio 1860 (una affrancata e viaggiata); e) Cinque missive autografe in lingua francese di Thomas Sterling Begbie, inviate da Londra (4, Mansion House Place) tra il 19 giugno e il 27 luglio 1860; f) Una lettera autografa, priva di data, inviata da tal Felletti [uomo di fiducia degli Orlando a Londra], in cui parla di attrezzature idrauliche per bastimenti militari. Di particolare interesse le corrispondenze di Paraviso, mercante italiano attivo a Birmingham, di Begbie, un inglese assai influente a Londra e collegato alla "British Columbia" e di Felletti: in esse si parla diffusamente di cospicui trasferimenti di armi dall'Inghilterra all'Italia. Felletti è un uomo di fiducia di Orlando a Londra, mentre Paraviso e Begbie sono due mercanti o mediatori, incaricati di trovare le armi necessarie all'impresa di Garibaldi. Scrive Paraviso l?11 luglio 1860 a Paolo Orlando, che si trova a Londra: ?La fabbrica nel Yorkshire alla quale ordinai i 14 cannoni per bastimento ora mi scrive che la sola specie che suole fare pel governo inglese sono di ferro fuso ?Cast Iron? ? Sempre Paraviso scrive il 21 luglio a Orlando, che nel frattempo si è trasferito a Liverpool: ?I 1250 fucili Enfield, le pistole e i coltelli d?abbordaggio partiranno da qui [Birmingham] senza fallo la sera di mercoledi prossimo. Faccia grazia di significarmi se per i detti fucili debbo pur?anche provvedere i fulminanti e che quantitativo?.? Intrigante anche la corrispondenza tra Begbie e Orlando: in particolare nelle missive del 26 e 27 luglio 1860 Begbie cita G.G. [Giuseppe Garibaldi] e la Calabria, ed esprime ?grand regret que le général est blessé à Milazzo? "Giuseppe Orlando di Colosa è considerato il capostipite della famiglia. D?origine siracusana ma palermitano d?adozione, possiedeva a Palermo un?officina meccanica a cui si rivolgevano gli agricoltori dell?isola per la costruzione di mulini e altre macchine agricole. Alla sua morte, avvenuta nel 1825, lascia la moglie Rosalia Castiglione e sei figli giovani; Luigi Orlando (1814-1896), Salvatore (1818 - 1881), Giuseppe (1820 - 1893), Paolo ( (1824 - 1891), Domenico (18. - 1837) e Lucia (.). Nel 1834 il primogenito Luigi Orlando aderisce alla Giovine Italia, seguito poi dagli altri fratelli. Dopo un periodo in esilio a Malta e in seguito al fallimento dei primi moti insurrezionali siciliani Luigi torna in patria e s?impegna attivamente nell?officina di famiglia introducendo la forza del vapore nella costruzione dei mulini da grano, e riscuote successo con la fabbricazione delle prime molle per materassi. Il carattere imprenditoriale orientato all'innovazione della meccanica è spesso osteggiato dai Borboni, vedendo essi nel progresso un possibile nemico. Luigi è più volte costretto a lasciare la Sicilia. Nel 1847, trasferitisi a Roma, Luigi e Giuseppe dimostrano entusiasmo verso la rivoluzione e la costituzione della Repubblica romana, portando tra l'altro con sé un tricolore, dono degli insorti palermitani, e riportandolo poi nel capoluogo siciliano. Luigi, in Campidoglio, sale in cima alla statua equestre di Marco Aurelio issandovi la bandiera italiana. Alla notizia della momentanea sconfitta del potere Borbonico a Palermo e in tutta la Sicilia in seguito ai moti del 1848, Paolo e Luigi rientrano subito e sono i 100 gr.

        PARTIE DU PORT-LOUIS [manuscript title]

      [N.p., but almost certainly Port Louis, 1860. Old folds. Minor wear and soiling. Browned. Near fine. Manuscript plan of Port Louis on the island of Mauritius. The legend contains sixteen lettered items, including the fortifications and government buildings, as well as several buildings which are denoted on the map with a dotted line, indicating future rather than current structures. Government buildings and fortifications are colored red. This would seem to be a later copy of an earlier map of the city, evidently showing the town and fortifications as they were in 1769, when the French East India Company had just taken over. The Dutch were the first Europeans to become interested in the island, taking possession in 1598. After exploiting the island's dense forests for a century and introducing the cultivation of sugar cane and cotton, in 1710 the Dutch abandoned the colony. The French soon claimed it as "Ile de France," and the island remained under the control of the French East India Company until 1767. During the long war between France and England at the beginning of the 19th century, Mauritius proved to be an important strategic naval base, and as a result the British took charge of the island in 1810, and the Treaty of Paris confirmed official British possession in 1814. It remained an important sugar producing colony, and in the 20th century agricultural production was expanded to include tea, rice, and other produce.

        Major General J Ogilvie Sed Book. Manuscript

      1860 - An Interesting Scottish Law Suit [Trial]. [Manuscript]. [Ogilvie, John (1783-1847)]. [Major Genl. J. Ogilvie Sed. Book Vol. 2. (Spine title, item complete, see below)]. [Likely Edinburgh, 1860s-1871]. [iv], 270 pp. Folio (13" x 8-1/2"). Three-quarter calf over marbled boards. Some rubbing to extremities with chipping to spine ends, corners somewhat worn, text in various neat hands. * From the Oriental Bank Company of Bombay, India to Edinburgh. Here is the story of Major General John Ogilvie and the trustees who settled his complicated estate over a protracted period among feuding family members. In this scenario, it would be a half-sister who would be fighting for a share in the disputed estate versus her sister-in-law. The rights of a woman legatee, in this case the General's widow, were at stake as were the widow's desire to fulfill her husband's wishes. General Ogilvie served in the Honorable East India Company Madras Army. He died without issue and was survived by his widow, Helen Ogilvie [1785-1867]. Helen Ogilvie decided to bequeath the estate to her husband's half-brother, James Ogilvie, but to omit another half-brother, Archibald Ogilvie from the estate. Her decision to exclude Archibald Ogilvie-the widow pointedly stated-was the wish of her deceased husband. But Helen's decision now opened the door to a legal challenge by General Ogilvie's half-sister, Isobel Ogilvie Miller, and Isobel's husband. They too now made a claim on the estate. This challenge came to a head on January 25th, 1870 in the court decision John Duncan and Others (Trustees of General Ogilvie) represented by the Solicitor-General's office via Clark-Munro vs. Mrs. Isobel Ogilvie or Miller and Husband, represented by Fraser and Watson. The case was heard and decided by the entire four-judge bench of the First Division of the Court of Session at Edinburgh, the supreme civil court of Scotland. Despite the designation "Volume 2," this volume forms a complete record created by legal solicitors on behalf of the trustees of General Ogilvie's estate. Volume 1 and any other volumes covered, we assume, other aspects of the suit. The records are in chronological order from 1849 to 1871, but appear to have been gathered as a final record book of the estate's settlement in 1871, following an 1870 Court of Session decision. The volume contains [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Boomanoomana Station from across the Murray River [with] American Merino Rams pedigree of sheep by W. G. Markham, purchased by Alfred Hay of Boomanoomana in 1883.

      Ca 1860s; 1883 - Albumen cabinet card with original photograph of the Australian station, now located in the township called Barooga. Photograph on card with printed border, the title written in pencil on verso. A small station house is visible at the right side of the image, with a long wooden fence bordering the river. The area which later became Boomanoomana Station was first settled in the early 1800’s by Colonel Henry Gwynne, who arrived there in the footsteps of Charles Sturt. By 1863 the station got its name when William Hay acquired 80,000 acres. The property extended from Corowa in the east to Tuppal Station in the west, and was quite wooded, therefore suitable for cattle. But Hay wanted to establish a sheep station, so he sold off his cattle, cleared the trees at great effort and fenced the land, purchasing merino sheep from established stations. Hay built a homestead which still stands; it was owned by Sir David Hay (1916 - 2009), head of Aboriginal Affairs, Administrator of Papua New Guinea and Ambassador to the UN, who restored the grounds and buildings to original condition. 3 1/2 x 6 1/2" image on card 4 1/2 x 6 1/2". Cabinet card not recorded in Trove.[with] American Merino Rams, recorded in the American Merino Register, selected by W. G. Markham, Avon, NY USA from the best American Flocks. Shipped from San Francisco, California, June, 1883. Consignee: Alfred Hay, Esq., Boomanoomana, Mulwala, New South Wales, Australia. W. G. Markham was heavily involved in the exportation of merinos to Australia. He convinced Australian wool growers that introducing American merinos into the Australia flock would increase their weight, and this was very successful. The purchaser here is Alfred Hay (1846 - 1918), the son of William Hay, who established Boomanoomana Station. Alfred Hay became sole owner of Boomanoomana Station in 1886, after the dissolution of the partnership between his father, himself, and brother. Boomanoomana Station at the time consisted of 33,000 acres of freehold, and about 5,000 acres of Crown lands.Markham was mentioned in many articles about Australian wool growing. In the "Pacific Rural Press", Volume 36, Number 24, 15 December 1888, it reads: "We imagine it was this large purchase (of sheep) by Mr. (Samuel) McCaughey which started that genial globetrotter in the sheep interest, Mr. W. G. Markham of Western New York, on a pleasure trip to Australia last summer. Mr. Markham made us a call (in California) on his way out but did not disclose his business. We imagine that he went to see if there were any more sheep buyers like Mr. McCaughey in Australia, and turn their attention to the flock of Western New York as well as to those of the Green Mountain State. It might not be amiss for some of our California breeders to Blip over to the Island continent, just to see how things are over there." Samuel McCaughey, of Melbourne, was reputed to be the owner of a million sheep, and one of the most influential wool producers in Australia. The pedigree published in New York, 1883. 17 pp text, with a fold-out pedigree of Ranzin 464. Oblong 12mo, orig. brown mat boards with gilt. "Compliments of W. G. Markham" on the front cover, black cloth spine. Slt. watermark on back board, otherwise pristine. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Illustrated with superb colour and b/w plates. Vol 1 is complete to p. 462 with all plates present, tightly bound, some staining but overall very good. Pages 463 - 472 including 5 plates are present but loose and are torn, stained and creased. Pages 473 - 484 are bound. Looks like the previous owner thought these were the only relevant pages and carried them around with him! Vol 2 - all 19 anatomical plates present. 4 plates in colour including 'Thormanby'. Pages 15/16 and plate loose and in poor condition. The leather binding is very good on both volumes but marbled boards are quite rubbed with pieces missing.

        JOURNAL OF RESEARCHES INTO THE NATURAL HISTORY AND GEOLOGY OF THE COUNTRIES VISITED DURING THE VOYAGE OF H.M.S. BEAGLE ROUND THE WORLD under the command of Capt. Fitz Roy, R.N.

      London, John Murray, 1860.Second edition, tenth thousand, 1860. 8vo, approximately 195 x 115 mm, 7¾ x 4½ inches, a few wood engraved illustrations and diagrams in the text, pages: xv, 519 including index, plus 32 page catalogue with adverts dated April 1867, bound in the original publisher's zigzag pattern green cloth, blind stamped decoration to covers, gilt decoration, gilt rules and gilt lettering to spine, original light brown endpapers. Tiny crease at tail of spine, gilt decoration just slightly rubbed in a couple of places, a touch of rubbing to corners, tiny bump to lower corner of lower cover, inner paper hinges not cracked, neat inscription to front pastedown, title page faintly browned, slight faint foxing to Contents table which is printed on different paper from the rest of the book, text pages bright and clean throughout. A very good plus copy. This is Darwin's first published book and is the most often read and stands second only to The Origin of Species as the most often printed. Referred to universally today as the Voyage of the Beagle, it is an important travel book in its own right and its relation to the background of Darwin's evolutionary ideas has often been stressed. The tenth thousand which this is provides the definitive text and sees the first appearance of the Postscript dated February 1st 1860 on page vii in which Darwin takes the opportunity to correct some errors. This is the first time it was published in the green cloth binding in the same style as the first three John Murray editions of On the Origin of Species. See Freeman, The Works of Charles Darwin, pages 31 - 36 and No. 20. Freeman states that inserted advertisements in our edition may be as late as September 1868.
