        Autograph letter signed ("V.").

      H[auteville] H[ouse, Guernsey], 9 Feb. [1860]. - 8vo. 3 pp. In French, to Noel Parfait in Paris: "Your kind letter moves me. You are sad and happy at the same time, and it is quite normal. Homeland is sweet but exile is grand. One goes back home but one has to give up one's freedom. I understand the double shock your soul is experiencing. But it does not matter, dear Parfait. You are going to be happy, I have no doubt about that. You are taking into the darkness that prevails in France nowadays the serenity of a proud conscience and the satisfaction of having overcome the ordeal. You will feel respectable among all the despicable people. That is an austere kind of joy but it is indeed a joy. Thank you for all the details you gave me. I congratulate and envy Dumas, who was able to help you and ensure that you will have enough to live on in Paris. That, plus all the intelligence, style, grace, talent and virtue that you have! I assure you that you are going to do very well. I am sorry for H.M. the world's biggest scoundrel [H.M. stands for His Majesty, most likely Louis-Napoleon], but there is going to be one successful honest man in Paris. I already know seven or eight of them, maybe nine, and that will make ten with you. Our friend must be in Brussels at the moment. Tell him that I am going to answer his letter and ask him to send me, in the meantime, the issue of l'lndependance (by mail, since it costs two sous there and six francs here) in which my note on George Sand was printed. Also, I would like to have his address in Brussels [ ]". In a postscript, Hugo as added, "Would you be so kind as to have the first of the two letters I am enclosing handed over to Bance, whose address I do not know, and mail the second one in Brussels? Sorry and many thanks". - In February 1860, Hugo was still living in exile on Guernsey, still writing about the darkness that prevails in France and the world's greatest scoundrel. It was an exile that had begun in December 1851 when a coup d'etat took place in France, which eventually resulted in the Second Empire under Napoleon III, and it did not end until the return of liberty and the reconstitution of the republic on 4 September 1870. However, his exile had recently become a voluntary gesture and an act of pride, a time to stand against Louis Napoleon. On 15 August 1859 (the birth of Napoleon I), Napoleon III offered an amnesty to exiles, which was accepted by some, but not Hugo. In a poem, "Ultima verba", he marked his decision, stating "No one will suppose that I personally can take any notice of the thing called an amnesty. In the present condition of France, protest - absolute, inflexible, eternal protest - that is my duty. True to the engagements I have made with my conscience, I shall share the exile of freedom to the end. When freedom returns, I shall return". The truth of the matter was that Hugo could not return during the reign of Napoleon III without inflicting a deep wound on his pride, and he could not resign himself to that. He was also well aware of the status and commercial value of banishment, even though the banishment was now self-imposed. The personal defiance of Napoleon III, the deliberate choice of martyrdom, gave Hugo a new heroic dimension. - With integral address leaf.

        [TASMANIA] A daguerreotype portrait of a woman wearing a bonnet and Paisley pattern dress, identified as "Mary Ann Fielding of Australia"

      [Australia? : s.n., circa 1860]. Ninth plate daguerreotype, exposed image 56 x 43 mm, still sealed in its original pressed copper mat and frame, 71 x 55 mm; verso with the original leather backing inscribed in an early twentieth century hand 'Mary Ann Fielding of Australia. Mother's namesake'; original string for suspension; the daguerreotype is intact, with scattered tarnishing beneath the cover glass and a mild rose hue from oxidation. If this is indeed an Australian daguerreotype, there is a strong possibility it has a Tasmanian connection. We have tentatively identified the subject as Mary Ann Fielding (née Harvey, 1823-1863). Her obituary appeared in the Launceston Examiner, 16 July 1863: "At her residence, Exton, July 11, 1863, Mary Ann, the beloved wife of J.J. Fielding, aged 39 years." The style of dress she is wearing dates the photograph to around 1860 - relatively late for a daguerreotype - which would mean she was in her late thirties when the likeness was taken. Following her death, Mary Ann's husband, James Fielding, married Ann Clarke. They had a daughter, also called Mary Ann, who was clearly named in honour of her father's first wife. This explains the "namesake" reference in the later inscription on the back of the daguerreotype. The younger Mary Ann was born in Exton on 26 April 1869 and died on 8 July 1945 in Yolla, Tasmania. She married George Edward Dobson (born Exton, 12 July 1872; died Yolla, Tasmania, 1 April 1945) on 26 April 1899 in Port Frederick (Devonport). The couple had five children: Ethel Nellie, Kathleen Mary, Hazel, Stanley and Henry James, one of whom presumably wrote the inscription identifying the subject as "mother's namesake". (Since they were all issue of James Fielding's second wife, they were not related by blood to the first Mary Ann). George and Mary Ann Dobson resided in Penguin, Smithton and Elliott before settling in Yolla in the 1920's. Both are buried in the Penguin General Cemetery. As the daguerreotype was sourced from an American collection, we postulate that it was taken to the United States at some point in the early twentieth century by one of George and Mary Ann Dobson's five children, a fact which would account for the inclusion of the modifier "of Australia" in the inscription.

        19th century album amicorum of 42 loose sheets in a silk-covered box.

      [s.i.], [n.pl.] 1860 - The box contains several small watercolour paintings, pencil sketches, three pieces of embriodery and a number of manuscript verses/poems/greetings. The box probably belonged to to Stephania Gerrietta Johanna (Stephanie) Brocx, born 1810, died 1880. Author(s): Various artists. Illustrated by: Most of the works are signed. Many are friends and family by names of Brocx and Van Andel. Others include U.J. Lautsz, Van Oosten Slingeland (perhaps Daniel), L.H.J. Wollweber and O. Wollweber (who made a landscape with the inscription "in mijne Krijgsgevangenschap vervaardigt" ('Made during my time as prisoner of war'). As many of the contributors signed as Officers of the artillery, our guess is that mrs. Van Andel's husband was a military man. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        [GOLD RUSH] Welcome Nugget

      Chromolithographic advertising label, c 1860, for Welcome Nugget tobacco (270 x 270 mm, some minor toning to margins and very small amount of silverfish damage at right edge, not affecting image), with imprint lower left:T.C. Williams Co. Manufacturers. Virginia, U.S.A.; framed.A gold miner with pick and shovel holds aloft an enormous gold nugget, and exclaims : Jack, look at this. A further printed caption lower right reads: As the Welcome Nugget, weighing 2217 ounces, exceeds in purity and value any lump of gold ever found, so this brand surpasses in quality any tobacco made. This is a reference to the Welcome Nugget,discovered at Bakery Hill, Ballarat in 1858, and weighing 71.3 kilograms, at the time the largest alluvial gold nugget ever found. (It has only ever been surpassed in weight by the Welcome Stranger, unearthed in 1869, also on the central Victorian goldfields). The claim for its discovery was made by a group of 22 Cornish miners. After being assayed in Melbourne, the nugget was sold for ten-and-a-half thousand pounds sterling, and exhibited in Sydney before being taken to London, where it was displayed at the Crystal Palace exhibition. It was melted down shortly afterwards and the precious metal was used to mint gold sovereigns. This American commercial label graphically illustrates the extent to which gold fever had gripped the world after the rushes in Victoria (1850s) and New South Wales (1860s) had followed the earlier Californian rush (1848-1855).

        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.

        Illustrated Manuscript of two poems: "To a Woodman's Hut there came one day." and "My Voice is still for War." [From "Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves" and Addison's "Cato", respectively]

      Full Pebbled Leather, Blindstamped and Gilt Decorated. Very Good. N.p., but American. N.d., circa 1860. Oblong, 23 by 28.5 cm. Two text leaves, each with one of the poems rendered in full, followed by 66 leaves, each with a mounted sheet onto which is written words from a poem and is drawn in pen and ink an illustration of those words. The illustrations are inspired mostly by the single word or phrase captioned on the sheet, as opposed to the wholeness of the poem, and thus the illustrations don't always fit in with the poem, or have the most nominal relationship to it, but nonetheless, the illustrations are full of charm and fun, and they are really best viewed and enjoyed without reference to the poem.While we don't have a date for the album, the ubiquity of Civil War-era uniforms and stove pipe hats strongly suggest the 1860s. There are also interesting illustrations of slaves. Many of the illustrations look back nostalgically to an earlier era, as for instance the eighteenth century which is depicted as a world of music and dance masters and gracious society. Classical Rome is represented in abundance too, as one might expect for "Cato". In these drawings and in evocations of Medieval times, the illustrator was not reluctant to indulge in a bit of anachronistic imagery as well.We don't know who the artist was, but clearly he was a very capable amateur -- the artwork is not quite done with the polish of a professional, we would grant. Some of the illustrations are highly detailed, while others are of a sketchier nature."To the Woodsman's Hut" gives rise to 26 of the illustrations, "Cato", 40. Repair to the joints. The binding has a few scuffs but is overall very attractive.

        Lithographed Membership Certificate for the Socialistischer Turner-Bund, ca.1850's

      [Cincinnati?]: Issued without imprint, [N.d. but before 1860]. Early membership certificate for the North American Socialistischer Turner-Bund, a German Socialist Athletic society formed by exiles from the Revolution of 1848. The Bund, established in 1850 in Cincinnati (with nearly simultaneous chapters in other centers of German immigration, including Philadelphia, New York, Milwaukee and Chicago), is generally considered the first organized Socialist organization in America. The organization disintegrated during the Civil War, but was re-established in the 1870's but with a much-reduced emphasis upon political affairs -- in fact, after about 1870, the descriptor "Socialistischer" was dropped from the organization's name. Tinted lithograph broadside, ca. 12" x 9", printed recto-only on thin paper. Text in one column within elaborate pictorial borders; blank portions for completion by hand (unused). Old folds; neat tape repairs verso; light soiling; Good.

        Watercolour of Chefoo (Yantai) During the Taiping Rebellion (1850-1864)

      Yantai, Shandong Province, China, 1860. In good condition.. Watercolour, 230 x 380 mm, signed and dated ("Lindesay Brine fecit June 22 1860"); mounted. An attractive and skillfully executed drawing heightened with watercolour. Two Chinese figures carrying baskets have been sketched in the foreground but have not been finished. A European ship and numerous ships either sail or ride at anchor off a promontory hill, probably Tengchow (now Penglai), one of the treaty ports opened for foreign trade following the 1858 Treaty of Tianjin.Lindesay Brine, who entered the Royal Navy in 1847, was the author of "The Taeping Rebellion in China; a narrative of its rise and progress, based upon original documents and information obtained in China" (London: Murray, 1862). This watercolour was made on the spot during his service as commander in the China Seas. The painting is captioned in ink on the image: "HMS Gunboat Opossum - Junk by Chefoo - The French Troops are Encamped on the Hill." "While serving in the Far East, [Brine] took much pains to collect accurate information on the troubles then prevailing, and in 1862 published the results of his observations and inquiries in a volume entitled 'The Taiping Rebellion in China'" (Obituary in The Geographical Journal 27,3 (March 1906).

        Photographic portrait of the explorer Robert O'Hara Burke

      Mid-1860 [but probably published early 1863]. Albumen print photograph, carte de visite format, approximately 97 x 63 mm, verso with the imprint of 'Davies & Co., Photographers, 5, Collins St. West, (3 Doors from Elizabeth St.) Melbourne', the albumen print in oval format with light rubbing at upper right, otherwise a good, stong print; the mount clean, with a tiny amount of foxing to the verso. A rare portrait photograph of one of the most celebrated figures in the history of Australian exploration. As early as 1857 the Royal Society of Victoria had begun to plan and organise an expedition which would seek to traverse Australia from south to north. With Burke as leader and Wills third-in-command, the Victorian Exploring Expedition set out from Melbourne in August 1860 and arrived at the Gulf of Carpentaria in February 1861. On the epic return journey, Burke and Wills were to perish at Cooper's Creek. No fewer than six different search expeditions were mounted, and in April 1862 Alfred Howitt's party successfully located and exhumed the remains of Burke and Wills, which were brought back to Melbourne, arriving there on December 29, 1862. This portrait of Burke, published posthumously very early in 1863, is one of only a handful of photographic portraits that are known of the explorer. It is from an ambrotype photograph attributed to Melbourne photographer Thomas Adams Hill which was taken just prior to the expedition's departure in mid 1860. (Hill's original ambrotype, along with its companion ambrotype of Wills, is held in the collection of the State Library of New South Wales). The State Library of Victoria holds another copy of the present Burke carte de visite, in the same oval format; but the National Library of Australia holds a variant of the same image, vignetted and without the oval frame, published by the Melbourne studio of Johnstone & Co., which suggests that the legal status of the sale rights of Hill's images may have been unclear. Used as the basis for numerous engraved portraits and paintings that appeared in 1863 - part of a vast number of commemorative works created that included a wax works diorama and permanent monuments - this remains the most well-known image of Robert O'Hara Burke. Once the full, tragic story of the expedition became known, the fate of Burke and Wills gripped the public's imagination like no other event was to do in the colonial era. However, photographic images of Burke and Wills which are contemporary with these events are very seldom encountered on the market, and very few are recorded in Australian public collections. Auction records indicate that only one photographic portrait of Burke (and one of Wills) has been offered for sale in the last decade.

        Pèlerinage a la Mecque et a Médine. Précédé d'un aperçu sur l'islamisme et suivi de considérations générales au point de vue sanitaire et d'un appendice sur la circoncision.Cairo, Imprimerie Nationale, 1894. 8vo. With 19 plates with reproductions of photographs. Modern green cloth.

      S. Marmon, Eunuchs and sacred boundaries in Islamic society, p. 103; S. Sheehi, The Arab imago: a social history of portrait photography, 1860-1910, pp. 166-167. First and only edition of a report on the pilgrimage to Mecca and Medina written by the Egyptian doctor Saleh Soubhy. Soubhy worked as a health inspector at Cairo, and was appointed by khedive Abbas Hilmi II (1874-1944) to investigate the sanitary conditions of the Egyptian pilgrimage caravan to Mecca and Medina. Soubhy travelled to the Hijaz in 1888 and 1892, and published his experiences in the present work. "The French-educated doctor, Soubhy, wrote for a foreign audience in order to show both the sanctity and orderliness of the Hajj, regulated by quarantines and public health measures through which a great number of pilgrims flowed" (Sheehi). With this work, "a carefully composed defense of Islam" (Marmon), Soubhy also tried to portray Islam is as an acceptable religion to his European colleagues. The book also includes some important early photographs of Mecca and Medina, taken by Muhammad Saduq Bey (1832-1902), the first to photograph the holy cities, and al-Sayyid 'Abd al-Ghaffar (active 1880's).With a bookplate on paste-down. Upper outer corner of half-title restored, tiny piece of the same corner torn off from the title-page, browned throughout, half-title smudged, and a few plates slightly thumbed, otherwise in good condition.

        Photographic portrait of the explorer Robert O'Hara Burke

      Mid-1860 [but probably published early 1863]. Albumen print photograph with hand colouring, carte de visite format, amount 105 x 63 mm, vignetted image 50 x 50 mm, recto of mount inscribed in contemporary hand 'Bourke' (sic), and verso inscribed in the same hand (with the correct spelling) 'Burke'; no studio imprint; albumen print with faint line of oxidisation above the subject, else fine; the mount also fine, and free from foxing; [TOGETHER WITH] Photographic portrait of the Victorian goldfields photographer Henry Glenny. Albumen print photograph with hand colouring, carte de visite format, amount 105 x 63 mm, vignetted image 50 x 50 mm; no studio imprint, but attributable to Glenny himself; a few toning spots, else fine. A rare portrait photograph of Robert O'Hara Burke, one of the most celebrated figures in the history of Australian exploration. As early as 1857 the Royal Society of Victoria had begun to plan and organise an expedition which would seek to traverse Australia from south to north. With Burke as leader and Wills third-in-command, the Victorian Exploring Expedition set out from Melbourne in August 1860 and arrived at the Gulf of Carpentaria in February 1861. On the epic return journey, Burke and Wills were to perish at Cooper's Creek. No fewer than six different search expeditions were mounted, and in April 1862 Alfred Howitt's party successfully located and exhumed the remains of Burke and Wills, which were brought back to Melbourne, arriving there on December 29, 1862. This portrait of Burke, published posthumously very early in 1863, is one of only a handful of photographic portraits that are known of the explorer. It is taken from an ambrotype photograph attributed to Melbourne photographer Thomas Adams Hill, which was taken just prior to the expedition's departure in mid 1860. (Hill's original ambrotype, along with its companion ambrotype of Wills, is held in the collection of the State Library of New South Wales). The National Library of Australia holds a carte de visite bearing a variant of the same vignetted image - but without the hand tinting - which was published by the Melbourne studio of Johnstone & Co. The State Library of Victoria holds a carte de visite with another variant of the same image, in oval format. The fact that several variants of the same image were published simultaneously suggests that the legal status of the sale rights of Hill's images may have been unclear, with a number of Melbourne (and regional Victorian - see below) photographic studios seeking to turn a quick profit from the souvenir market. Used as the basis for numerous engraved portraits and paintings that appeared in 1863 - part of a vast number of commemorative works created that included a wax works diorama and permanent monuments - Hill's ambrotype portrait remains the most well-known image of Robert O'Hara Burke. Once the full, tragic story of the expedition became known, the fate of Burke and Wills gripped the public's imagination like no other event was to do in the colonial era. However, photographic images of Burke and Wills which are contemporary with these events are very seldom encountered on the market, and very few are recorded in Australian public collections. Provenance: The present carte de visite of Robert O'Hara Burke came from the personal carte de visite album of Henry Glenny, a pioneer photographer on the central Victorian goldfields. Glenny had arrived in Port Phillip from Ireland in 1853, and opened his first studio in Castlemaine in 1857. By the early 1860s he operated studios concurrently in Ballarat, Kyneton and Castlemaine. His personal album contained portraits of the photographer and his family, as well as views of his Ballarat house and photographic studios. We offer the Burke portrait together with Glenny's self-portrait carte de visite, also removed from this album. Both the Glenny portrait and the O'Hara Burke carte de visite were quite clearly vignetted and tinted by the same hand, a fact which points strongly to Glenny having pirated and published the Hill ambrotype image of Burke in order to market it to his goldfields clientele. Glenny - or, quite possibly, a talented artist assistant - added the hand tinting to elevate this "version" above the uncoloured cartes de visite of Burke being published by Melbourne competitors such as Davies and Johnstone.
