        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.

        Why be Good Tempered? One page of Manuscript in Thackeray's hand from volume I of his novel "The Newcomes". Signed and dated, May 30, 1860.

      1860 21 lines on recto only of single quarto sheet.The Newcomes was published in twenty four numbers, 1853-55. It followed the success of Vanity Fair (1847), which rapidly shot Thackeray to fame, and the subsequent novels Pendennis (1848-50) and Henry Esmond (1852). This manuscript was probably requested by a charitable organisation or written out for a friend. This is a playful page advocating the benefits of being bad tempered: 'Surely a fine furious temper, if accompanied with a certain magnanimity and bravery ... is one of the most precious and fortunate gifts with w[hi]c[h] a gentleman, a lady can be endowed ... 'The lazy grow tired of contending with him; the timid coax and flatter him; and as almost every one is timid or lazy, a bad tempered man is want to have his own way ... She [the bad tempered female] has the place which she likes in the drawing room ... if the family are taking their tour in the summer it is she who ordains whether they shall go, and where they shall stop'. But God forbid you are a person of mild manners and temper: 'nobody cares whether we are pleased or not. Our wives go to the Milliners, & send us the bill, and we pay it ... our sons loll in the arm chair we should like ... and smoke in the dining room, our taylors fit us badly; our butchers give us the youngest mutton ... and our servants go out whenever they like'.

        POPULAR TALES OF THE WEST HIGHLANDS. Orally Collected with a Translation by J. F. Campbell ..

      Edinburgh: Edmonston and Douglas, 1860.. Octavo, two volumes: pp. [i-v] vi [vii] viii-xii [ix] x-cxxxii [cxxxiii] cxxxiv-cxxxv [cxxxvi] [1] 2-353 [354: blank]; [i-v] vi-xiii [xiv] [1] 2-478 [479-480: blank][note: preliminary leaves in volume one are complete despite gap in pagination], original decorated maroon cloth, front and spine panels stamped in gold, rear panels stamped in blind, top and fore edges untrimmed, bottom edges rough trimmed, gray coated endpapers. First edition. A presentation copy with signed inscription by Campbell on the half title page of volume 1: "Tom Taylor / From / J. F. Campbell / Decr. 22 / 60." John Francis Campbell of Islay (1821-1885) is perhaps best known as a pioneer collector of Gaelic folklore, systematically recording the Gaelic oral tradition principally in the Scottish Highlands and Western Islands. Campbell published the first two volumes of his groundbreaking, highly influential POPULAR TALES OF THE WEST HIGHLANDS in 1860. Two more volumes (not included here) followed in 1862. The resourceful Campbell, a descendant of Highland chieftains living in the midst of his own dying folk tradition, "came up with a brilliant idea which would transform field collecting. He employed and trained collectors expert in Gaelic and born in the Highlands and the Western Islands to interview and record the storytellers in their dialects ... In a remarkably short time [he] captured a whole archive of folk tales. He printed 86 in three volumes and announced in his final note at the end of volume four in 1862 that his aides had sent him a total of 791 stories ... more were coming in all the time, and yet whole districts were still untouched ... Campbell himself never placed more tales in print and could not even spare time to oversee a second edition, which did not appear until after his death ... Folklorists are content with POPULAR TALES. In addition to the precious texts and variants of Highland stories in English and Gaelic, the author supplied an absorbing introduction of well over a hundred pages, copious observations on elements and variations in the tales, and a fourth volume containing a monographic essay on the Ossianic controversy with additional papers on 'Traditions,' 'Mythology,' 'A Plea for Gaelic,' 'Highland Dress,' 'Celtic Art' and 'Music.'" - Dorson, The British Folklorists, pp. 392-402. Volume 1 has been professionally rebacked with the original cloth spine panel preserved, just a bit of wear at spine ends and corner tips, short closed split along outer rear joint of volume 2, a very good copy.

        Nature Printed Leaves of Plants [spine title].

      C. 1860. - Folio. 440 x 290 mm. pp. 23 double sided prints. Printed in green with hand drawn purple straight ruled borders, bound in contemporary half morocco, recently rebacked, lettered in gilt on the spine. A rare collection of nature printing in colour and of woody, rather than fleshy, specimens. Due to the more resistant nature of the specimens there are significant impressions on to the paper. The art of nature printing originates in the 13th Century but it seems to have been the 1850s which saw a serious interest in England and Scotland with the work of William Aitken, Ferguson Branson and Thomas Moore. They all used a mechanical process to impress an image on lead or zinc, subsequently electroplating a printing plate on copper. However nature printing, in its simplest form, was easy to master and was also adopted enthusiastically by amateurs who would use the technique for collecting and recording plants, seaweeds and even moths and butterflies. The simple inking of a specimen, laying it onto paper, or between two sheets, and pressed with weights or a roller would produce an accurate and pleasing image to satisfy naturalists and artists. Although from different sources, our two examples have a remarkable similarity which marks them out from most commercially produced volumes; they are both printed double sided, i.e. the specimens are inked both sides and pressed with a sheet of paper top and bottom to give a ?not-quite? mirror image. They also differ too. The smaller, and presumed earlier example is more akin to art, with multiple specimens arranged on a single sheet, with no intent to show individual species. The larger, and later example is more purposefully set out, individual specimens to a single page with a particularly striking green ink used in the process. It is likely that in both cases only a single example, or at least a very few, were produced. The volumes have both been bound up from individual sheets, showing the images face to face as they were printed. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        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.

        Sights and Scenes in Fair Japan.

      Tokyo: Imperial Government Railways.. (circa1910).. 50 delicate hand coloured collotype plates on high quality stiff card each captioned in English, presented in Japanese embroidered silk covered boards with tassle ties, All edges gilt., patterned gilt endpapers.The hinges of each image have been professionally repaired with Japanese paper and wheat starch paste. Neat pencilled annotations lower corners, leaves clean and bright. 26 x 38cm. This beautiful album proved very popular and was reprinted a number of times, in some editions all of the plates are in colour, as is the case with this copy, and at other times the edition only shows some plates in colour and while the others are in black and white. The work also appears in editions both with and without 2 maps, later editions in Western bindings. Although his name does not appear in this album it seems highly likely that this album was published by Ogawa Kazumasa (1860-1929). Described by Terry Bennett in his excellent work Japanese Photography in Japan 1850 - 1912 as a "Pivotal figure in early Japanese photography. He adapted cutting-edge Western technology in photo-printing processes to produce numerous half-tone and collotype publications which transformed the market.." The interesting and delicate scenes in this album include a number showing Japanese people at leisure, in a street scene, a crowd at a sumo match, people involved in their daily occupations and a number of temples, gardens and other places of interest to the early 20th century visitor to Japan. A very good copy of a charming album. .
