Trollope, Anthony
1861 - London: Chapman and Hall, 1861. 32 pp ads dated Nov 1861. Original blind-stamped blue cloth. First Edition. This is a collection of eight short stories that Trollope had written for several periodicals; the tales are sited in various other countries, such as Ireland, France, Egypt and Jamaica. Although this book did not fare well with the reading public, Chapman & Hall would publish a second series of such tales two years later.~This is a very good, perhaps near-fine copy: there is minor rubbing at the extremities and one small spot on the front cover (the front free endpaper is slightly damaged from a bookplate affixed to the opposing pastedown). Though this is not a scarce Trollope title, we seldom see it in condition this advantageous. Sadleir (TROLLOPE) 12. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

John Gould
London 1861 - John Gould (1804-1881) was an English ornithologist, self-taught artist and naturalist. Gould first worked as a gardener under his father in the Royal Gardens of Windsor from 1818-1824, where he began his illustrations. He became an expert taxidermist, opening his own practice in London in 1824 and in 1827 he became the first Curator and Preserver at the museum of the Zoological Society of London. Through his work he was able to meet with the country’s leading naturalists and view new collections of birds given to the Zoological Society. His interest in birds was continually developing and in 1830 he published his first volume on birds, “A Century of Birds From the Himalaya Mountains.” For the next fifty years, Gould, his wife and artists working with them traveled around Asia, the East Indies and Australia. His wife Elizabeth and other artists were able to transfer his sketches to stone; hand print and hand-color them. Of all his works, many of Gould’s best-known images come from this beautiful and comprehensive “Monograph of the Trochilidae, or Family of Hummingbirds”. One of his largest productions, the Hummingbirds was also the most painstaking, meticulously detailed project that the ornithologist attempted. In order to create accurate representations of the tiny, delicately beautiful birds, Gould invented a new method of coloring, using metallic pigments to reproduce the iridescence of their plumage. Most images also show at least one subject in flight to further accentuate the coloring of their feathers. All of the hummingbi … [Click Below for Full Description]

THE RUSSIANS ON THE AMUR; ITS DISCOVERY, CONQUEST, AND COLONISATION, WITH A DESCRIPTION OF THE COUNTRY, ITS INHABITANTS, PRODUCTIONS, AND COMMERCIAL CAPABILITIES; AND PERSONAL ACCOUNTS OF RUSSIAN TRAVELLERS. --- From Preface: The progress of Russia in Asia, her rapid strides in the direction of India, and the acquisition from China of provinces far exceeding the British Islands in extent, cannot fail of being important to a nation with such vast interests at stake in China and the East as England has. In presenting therefore a work on Russian advance on the Amur, within the confines of the Celestial Empire, we feel that we are laying before the public a subject well worthy of their attention. It has been our endeavour to convey a correct idea of the past and present condition of the countries we treat of, their information of value not only to the geographer, politician, or merchant, but also attractive to that daily-increasing portion of the public who find a pleasure in studying the state and prospects of distant countries.' 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

John Gould
1861. John Gould (1804-1881) was an English ornithologist, self-taught artist and naturalist. Gould first worked as a gardener under his father in the Royal Gardens of Windsor from 1818-1824, where he began his illustrations. He became an expert taxidermist, opening his own practice in London in 1824 and in 1827 he became the first Curator and Preserver at the museum of the Zoological Society of London. Through his work he was able to meet with the country’s leading naturalists and view new collections of birds given to the Zoological Society. His interest in birds was continually developing and in 1830 he published his first volume on birds, “A Century of Birds From the Himalaya Mountains.” For the next fifty years, Gould, his wife and artists working with them traveled around Asia, the East Indies and Australia. His wife Elizabeth and other artists were able to transfer his sketches to stone; hand print and hand-color them. Of all his works, many of Gould’s best-known images come from this beautiful and comprehensive “Monograph of the Trochilidae, or Family of Hummingbirds”. One of his largest productions, the Hummingbirds was also the most painstaking, meticulously detailed project that the ornithologist attempted. In order to create accurate representations of the tiny, delicately beautiful birds, Gould invented a new method of coloring, using metallic pigments to reproduce the iridescence of their plumage. Most images also show at least one subject in flight to further accentuate the coloring of their feathers. All of the hummingbirds are drawn to scale and are anatomi … [Click Below for Full Description]

HATTON, John Liptrot (1809-86)
Hardcover. This English composer, conductor, pianist and singer is remembered for his many comic songs and glees, but also composed operas such as "Queen of the Thames," "Pascal Bruno" and "Rose, or Love's Ransom" and the cantata "Robin Hood." First, an ALS, 3pp, 4½" X 7¼", Upper Halloway, England, 1861 January 1. Addressed to William Cox Bennett (1820-95), a minor English poet who authored several verse collections. Near fine. Cordial note from a poet who it seems wants Hatton to set some of his poems to music. "I am much obliged for your new Book of Poems which I will devour as soon as I get the chance. The '1000 miles away' will, I think, suit my knuckle -- & I'll have a try at it. The Publisher of 'The Homeward Watch' will send you copies very shortly. When the weather gets a little decent, we will have a 'big talk' at yr. fireside con molto piacere.... I have forwarded Kingsley's Poems by this Post...." Boldly penned. Second, another ALS, 2pp, 7" X 4½", Margate, England, 1874 July 5. Addressed to William Kingston Sawyer (1828-82), poet who authored "Ten Miles from Town" (1866) and "The Legend of Phyllis" (1872). Near fine. In bold purple ink, Hatton pens another poet who wants Hatton to set his verse to music. "The 'Rose song' in yr. Vol. is very nice -- & would make a charming ballad -- but I cannot put myself in competition with Balfe -- who always did -- & always could write a more popular tune than ever I could...." Third and last is a Partly-printed Autograph Document in the form of a 12mo (4 3/4" X 7¼") full calf blind-embossed volume, n.y. Very good. Some edge a … [Click Below for Full Description]
