A gift from the explorer John McDouall Stuart, given aboard ship on his way to London from Adelaide in 1864, the year that his Explorations in Australia was published.'White-haired, exhausted and nearly blind, Stuart decided to visit his sister in Scotland and sailed in April 1864' (ADB).

        Gatherings of a Naturalist in Australasia. Gatherings of a Naturalist in Australasia; being observations principally on the animal and vegetable productions of New South Wales, New Zealand, and some of the Austral Islands

      John Van Voorst, London 1860 - Octavo, with eight handcoloured lithograph plates by George French Angas; a very good copy in green half morocco by Sangorski & Sutcliffe. With coloured lithographs after Angas. First edition: a handsome copy of this popular book by the well-travelled naturalist. "The drawings, with a few exceptions, are from the accurate pencil of Mr. G.F. Angas, well known for his correct delineations of subjects of Natural History, and the author of three splendid works illustrative of the scenery and natives of New Zealand, South Australia and Southern Africa" (Preface). The "few exceptions" are from originals by Thomas Baines and Joseph Wolf; together they represent three of the foremost artists of the period.Dr George Bennett first visited New South Wales in 1829 and settled in Sydney in 1836. As with many medically trained men from previous centuries, he was an ardent natural scientist, and became involved with the Australian Museum and Acclimatisation Society. He was also the Sydney agent for British ornithologist John Gould.Bennett's book is a practical and well-illustrated guide to the productions of Australia and an active attempt to protect certain species such as the Echidna, the Emu and the Notornis. This is a wonderful book, with commentary on life and natural history in colonial Australia. From the collection of Robert Edwards. [Attributes: First Edition]

Small stamp and previous owner signature to title page. Leather on lower part of spine with a tear and part detached. Hindges weak but book-block firmly attached. VIII (including half, 520, (6) pp + 1 plate.. The very scarce first German edition of Darwin's masterpiece, one of the most important books ever printed. The "Origin of Species" (1859) started the greatest of all intellectual revolutions in the history of Mankind."Its [Origin of Species] greatest impact on German biological practice lay in the introduction of historical modes of explanation for the observable phenomena of living nature. The historical approach to nature was rejected, not only by the opponents of evolution, but also by the idealist evolutionist. Whether they favored a teleological or a reductionist biology, the idealists could not see the point of a theory that emphasized the irregularities and exceptions in the organic world. In the timeless real of idealist thinking, unchanging laws worked out an inevitable destiny. But Darwin taught his followers to look at living beings one by one. Thus prompted, they recognized, as if for the first time, the surprising fact of anomaly and the wisdom of an open-ended theory." (Glick, The Comparative Reception of Darwinism). "Darwin was not happy about the first German translation. It was done from the second English edition by H.G. Bronn, who had, at Darwin's suggestion. added an appendix of the difficulties which occurred to him; but he had also excised bits of which he did not approve. This edition also contains the historical sketch in its shorter and earlier form. The text was tactfully revised by J.V. Carus who remained the most faithful and punctual of all Darwin's translators." (Freeman).Freeman No 672 - Freeman does not mention the lithographed plate

        Spinale Kinderlähmung. Monographie.

      . 2., umgearb. u. verm. Aufl., - Stuttgart, J.G. Cotta, 1860, VIII, 204 pp., 14 getönten lithogr. Taf., Pappband der Zeit.. Die erste Monographie über dieses Krankheitsbild von Jakob von Heine (1800-1879). - "Erst in dieser stark vermehrten zweiten Auflage, unter Bekanntgabe von vielen neuen Methoden und Erkenntnissen erhielt dieses klassische Werk den Titel "Spinale Kinderlähmung", da er den Sitz der Krankheit im Rückenmark annahm, wenn er sich auch noch nicht auf Sektionsergebnisse stützen konnte. Er teilte das Leiden ein in das akute (primäre) und das chronische (sekundäre) Stadium und unterschied sehr wohl die cerebrale (spastische) Hemiplegie von der spinalen Lähmung, die er "Paralysis infantilis spinalis" nannte. Ferner führte er sehr genaue Temperaturmessungen an den verschiedenen Körpergegenden durch und stellte dabei Unterschiede der Hautemperatur zwischen der gesunden und gelähmten Seite fest; auch das Zurückbleiben im Wachstum entging ihm nicht. Ebenso wies er schon auf das epidemische Auftreten hin, ferner auf die Kontrakturen und die anderen Fehlstellungen...." - "..namentlich die zweite aus dem Jahre 1860, deren reicher Inhalt nur in Stichworten angedeutet werden konnte, sind als wahre klassische Werke zu bezeichnen; nach ihrer Lektüre wird man es voll und ganz verstehen (...) das die Bezeichnung einer der schlimmsten Plagen, welche Kinder und Erwachsene befallen kann, mit dem Namen des deutschen Orthopäden Jacob von Heine (1800-1879) als 'Heine-Medinische Krankheit' verbunden bleiben wird. - Ferner war Jakob Heine wahrscheinlich der erste in Deutschland welcher die orthopädische Gymnastik in seinem Institut bei Cannstatt einführte." - - "In 1940 Heine (1799-1879) gave the first description of acute anterior polyomelitus in a slender monograph of 78 pages. "Twenty years later (1860) in a much enlarged edition Heine gathered again his rich experiences, announcing many new methods and observations. He called his new monograph "Spinale Kinderlähmung" as he assumed the seat of the disease to be in the spinal cord --- These tow monographs by Heine, especially the second of 1860 ... must be considered true classics ... "Valentin - After a brief account of the acute or primary stage comes a detailed description of the second or paralytic stage with numerous clinical histories of the different forms of paralysis, followed by sections on etiology and pathologic anatomy, differential diagnosis, prognosis and treatment, especially by orthopaedics means. The 29 lithographic figures illustrate deformities and apparatus. The book contains numerous references to the literature. (Fischbein et al) - - Valentin, Gesch. d.

        In Congress, July 4th, 1776 : the Unanimous Declaration of the thirteen United States of America

      Chicago and New York: Horace Thayer and Rufus Blanchard, 1860. Very Good. 29 1/4 x 43 inches (broadside dimensions). Lithographed broadside attached to wooden rods ready for hanging. Some loss to borders and minor paper loss throughout, professionally conserved by Northeast Document Conservation Center (NEDCC) removing old cloth and varnish, and conserving backed with toned Japanese tissue and with edging re-attached (a full conservation report including before and after photographs will be provided to the new owner.) The earliest date on the lithograph is 1818 but the story of it's publication is much more interesting. Where we'd normally expect the copyright statement we find instead: "Copied from the Declaration of Independence in the Department of State and Published by Benjamin Owen Tyler, Professor of Penmanship, City of Washington, 1818" and then "The publisher designed and executed the ornamental writing, and has been particular to copy the Facsimiles Exact, and has also observed the same punctuation, and copied every Capital as in the original." and then on the far right hand : "Engraved by Peter Maverick, Newark, N. J." Lower left shows "Printed by Lang & Laing, 117 Fulton St. N.Y." In the center of the green ornamental border on bottom is "Published by Horace Thayer, No 18 Beekman St. New York and Rufus Blanchard, Chicago Illinois" Finally in very small type just under the vignette "First Blow of Liberty" is a caption (the real copyright notice): "Entered according to Act of Congress in the year 1860 by H. Thayer in the Clerks office ... " An adaptation of Tyler's famous 1818 broadside, with Trumbull's painting inserted below "AMERICA" at the top of the lithograph, and a key for Trumbulls work at the bottom. Additionally, there is a new vignette "The first blow for Liberty" inserted above the key, in the bottom center of the facsimile signature field. Additionally, the whole is surrounded by a green border of grape vines and clusters. This presentation "amped up" the early Tyler 1818 broadside, providing it with a more visual appeal and additional marketing points. Bidwell's "American History in Image and Text" provides an interesting view into the competition between purveyors of various Declarations, something which happened from the very beginning with competing entrepeneurs trying to create (and later capitalize) on the public's love of the most visual representation they had of their new country. The fact that this highly decorative approach survived (and indeed flourished) in various forms as late as 1860 is a testament to the level of interest, and the creativity of the hucksters bent on out-performing their fellow creators. Bidwell contains has a select list of Declarations at the end, and in a note to #2 (The Tyler, page 287) he indicates he has seen a copy very similar to the one we offer here, but with a slightly different imprint (Printed by Lang & Cooper rather than Lang & Laing as here, and Thayer at No 36 Beekman rather than No 18 Beekman as here). Scarce, with six locations found in OCLC/Worldcat - mass historical, peabody essex, john carter brown, colonial williamsburg, library of virginia and the university virginia (Albert H.

      Canton c. 1860 - A set of 4 watercolour and gouache studies on pith paper, each surrounded by blue fabric borders. Dimensions: each approximately 215 by 150mm (8.5 by 6 inches). Pith seems not to have been adopted for painting until about 1820. Some European museums claim that their paintings on pith (often erroneously called "rice paper" or "mulberry pith") come from the end of the eighteenth century but there do not seem to be any dateable examples that are so early. There is a record of the Kaiser Franz of Austria buying some albums from an English Consul-General Watts in 1826. We know of an Italian Count who visited Canton in 1828 and had over 350 paintings on pith in his baggage when he died in Ambon two years later. In the British Library there is a scrap-book containing six pith paintings and a journal entry by a serving British officer who sent them home from India in 1829. These examples and contemporary accounts by visitors to Canton suggest that there was a flourishing trade in pith paintings by the early 1830s. Pith presumably came into use for painting to satisfy the increasing demand for small, inexpensive and easily transported souvenirs, following the massive growth in the China Trade in the first quarter of the nineteenth century. Paintings in oils, on board and canvas were costly and difficult to carry home. Earlier and more prestigious export water-colours had often been on a larger scale and painted on fine Chinese paper or on paper imported from Europe. The albums of pith paintings (and later the little glass-fronted boxes) were inexpensive, light, easy to pack and gave the pictures some protection on the long voyage home. Because many were sold in albums and hence protected from the light, they retain their bright colours to this day. Pith comes from the central column of spongy cellular tissue in the stem of a small tree called Tetrapanax Papyrifera, native to south-west China. It has had a variety of uses, some going back many centuries. At the imperial court both men and women wore coloured flowers made from pith in their hair. For use in painting, it is cut by hand with a knife into thin sheets from short lengths of the spongy tissue. Cutting is highly skilled and the constraints of the process mean that the finished sheets for painting seldom, if ever, measure more than about 30cms by 20cms. The sheets are dried, trimmed and used for painting without any further processing. Because of the nature of pith and its cellular structure, the gouache used by the Chinese sat on the surface and produced a bright and even sparkling effect. Very fine detail could be achieved but pith did not lend itself to the flat wash of colour favoured for European watercolours. Carl Crossman in his book The Decorative Arts of the China Trade (originally published under the title The China Trade) gives an excellent list of export painters with a note of those known to have painted on pith. These include Tingqua, Sunqua and Youqua. From 1757 until 1842 Canton was the only Chinese port open to trade with the west and it is no surprise that of the eight studios identified by Crossman as producing works on pith, six were in Canton. It seems that the 1830s and 1840s may have been the heyday of pith painting. The international trading bases, the waterfront 'factories' on the 'Hongs' in Canton, where they were produced, were partially burnt during the First Opium War (1839-41) and totally destroyed in a fire of 1856. The foreign trading companies then moved to Honan and subsequently put up splendid new offices on reclaimed land at Shamian Island, a little up river. As the result of the Treaty of Nanking, in 1842 additional Chinese ports were opened up for foreign trade and Hong Kong was established as a major trading centre. By 1860 references to China in the Illustrated London News, plentiful three years earlier, were few and far between. That is not to say that painting on pith ceased. Nicholas the second was given paintings on pith when he visite [Attributes: Soft Cover]
