        The Bean Goose. "Anser Segretum

      Natural History: London. Printed for the author by Taylor and Francis. 1862-1873. Original hand-coloured lithograph of the Bean Goose from John Gould's "Birds of Great Britain " Volume 5; Plate 2. The plate shows the Bean Goose sitting by the waters edge, with another pair in the background. Bright & good; a couple of light spots to left white area; paint smudge to right white area. John Gould (1804- 1881) Ornithologist, first trained as a taxidermist, opening a business in London in 1824. In 1827 he became the first Curator and Preserver at the Museum of the Zoological Society of London; there he oversaw the collection of birds from Himalaya which led to his first published work "A Century of Birds from the Himalaya Mountains" [ 1830-32]. Throughout his life he eventually published 41 volumes with approximately 3000 plates. covering birds of Europe, Great Britain, Asia, Australia and Papua New Guinea. The works were published in livraisons, by pre-paid subscrption, each part cost three guineas. In the early works he was aided in the creation of the plates by his wife Elizabeth Gould, Edward Lear and others. Gould died in February 1881 having completed the first 12 parts of " The Birds of New Guinea and the adjacent Papuan Islands, including many new species recently discovered in Australia. " As the title suggests he intended the work to supplement the "Birds of Australia" with the newly discovered species. The University of Glasgow, which owns a copy of Birds of Great Britain, describes John Gould as "the greatest figure in bird illustration after Audubon". Gould had already published some of the illustrations in" Birds of Europe", but "Birds of Great Britain "represents a development of his aesthetic style in which he adds illustrations of nests and young on a large scale. Gould published the book himself, producing 750 copies, Issued in London in 25 parts, to make the complete set, between 1863 and 1873, and each set contained 367 coloured lithographs. Gould undertook an ornithological tour of Scandinavia in 1856, in preparation for the work, taking with him the artist Henry Wolf. The majority of the sketches were drawn from newly killed specimens capturing the distinctiveness of each species. Gould then oversaw the process whereby his artists worked the sketches up into the finished drawings, which were lithographed by William Hart. The lithographs were hand coloured, and, in writing the introduction for the work, Gould states "every sky with its varied tints and every feather of each bird were coloured by hand; and when it is considered that nearly two hundred and eighty thousand illustrations in the present work have been so treated, it will most likely cause some astonishment to those who give the subject a thought." The work gathered critical acclaim: according to Mullens and Swann, Birds of Great Britain is "the most sumptuous and costly of British bird books", whilst Wood describes it as "a magnificent work". Isabella Tree writes that it "was seen - perhaps partly because its subject was British, as the culmination of [his] ... genius".

The secession element is yet so strong, with many in this District, that they would not be seen in the churches on that day... The Rebels were strongly fortified & in the Center where our boys were engaged our troops had no chance whatever of getting Artillery to bear on the Rebel batterys. The fire of the Rebels of Grape canister & Shrapnel on our boys who went up to storm the batteries were truly terrific but better luck next time.

        GREAT EXPECTATIONS

      Works of Charles Dickens. Household Edition. [In Two Volumes.] Illustrated from Drawings by F. O. C. Darley and John Gilbert. New York: Sheldon and Company, 1862. Original dark green cloth. Very early American Edition -- the later Sheldon issue (being volumes of the "Household Edition").~There has been much controversy over which is the first American edition -- the "Household" edition by James Gregory, or the edition by T. B. Peterson of Philadelphia. Walter Smith's new bibliography of Dickens's American editions will give the nod to Peterson's, with considerable information on this controversy. In the meantime here is the brief known history.~On November 15, 1860, Harper entered a copyright for the book, and then serialized the tale in Harper's Weekly beginning on November 24 and ending on August 3, 1861 (however, there is no book edition published by Harper in 1861, as they sold the book rights to Peterson). On August 26, barely three weeks later (and about seven weeks after the English three-decker was published), James Gregory of New York entered a two volume set for copyright (having undoubtedly set the type from the Harper serialization). Peterson of Philadelphia did not enter his one-volume edition at the LofC until November 8th, almost three months later. But: Peterson's edition was actually out in the public's hand by the month of July, while Gregory's did not actually hit the streets until September. So although Gregory's was the first edition to deposit copies at the Library of Congress, Peterson's was the first "published" -- put into the hands of the public.~The earliest Gregory volumes bear his name as publisher on the 1861 title pages; on later copies (as here -- this one is dated 1862) the imprint of Sheldon and Company replaces Gregory's. Each volume includes a frontispiece plate by F. O. C. Darley, with protective tissue. These volumes are in bright, just-about-fine condition (faint discoloration of the covers).

        The Wood Pigeon "Palumbus Torquatus

      Natural History: London. Printed for the author by Taylor and Francis. 1862-1873. Original hand-coloured lithograph o fa Wood Pigeon from John Gould's "Birds of Great Britain " Volume 3; Plate 1. The plate shows a plump Wood Pigeon roosting on a pine branch. Bright & good. John Gould (1804- 1881) Ornithologist, first trained as a taxidermist, opening a business in London in 1824. In 1827 he became the first Curator and Preserver at the Museum of the Zoological Society of London; there he oversaw the collection of birds from Himalaya which led to his first published work "A Century of Birds from the Himalaya Mountains" [ 1830-32]. Throughout his life he eventually published 41 volumes with approximately 3000 plates. covering birds of Europe, Great Britain, Asia, Australia and Papua New Guinea. The works were published in livraisons, by pre-paid subscrption, each part cost three guineas. In the early works he was aided in the creation of the plates by his wife Elizabeth Gould, Edward Lear and others. Gould died in February 1881 having completed the first 12 parts of " The Birds of New Guinea and the adjacent Papuan Islands, including many new species recently discovered in Australia. " As the title suggests he intended the work to supplement the "Birds of Australia" with the newly discovered species. The University of Glasgow, which owns a copy of Birds of Great Britain, describes John Gould as "the greatest figure in bird illustration after Audubon". Gould had already published some of the illustrations in" Birds of Europe", but "Birds of Great Britain "represents a development of his aesthetic style in which he adds illustrations of nests and young on a large scale. Gould published the book himself, producing 750 copies, Issued in London in 25 parts, to make the complete set, between 1863 and 1873, and each set contained 367 coloured lithographs. Gould undertook an ornithological tour of Scandinavia in 1856, in preparation for the work, taking with him the artist Henry Wolf. The majority of the sketches were drawn from newly killed specimens capturing the distinctiveness of each species. Gould then oversaw the process whereby his artists worked the sketches up into the finished drawings, which were lithographed by William Hart. The lithographs were hand coloured, and, in writing the introduction for the work, Gould states "every sky with its varied tints and every feather of each bird were coloured by hand; and when it is considered that nearly two hundred and eighty thousand illustrations in the present work have been so treated, it will most likely cause some astonishment to those who give the subject a thought." The work gathered critical acclaim: according to Mullens and Swann, Birds of Great Britain is "the most sumptuous and costly of British bird books", whilst Wood describes it as "a magnificent work". Isabella Tree writes that it "was seen - perhaps partly because its subject was British, as the culmination of [his] ... genius"was seen - perhaps partly because its subject was British, as the culmination of [his] ... genius".

        Snow - Flakes and the Stories they told the Children. Illustrated by H.K. Browne.

      Sampson Low Son & Co 1862 - frontispiece, additional title-page, and 10 pages of text printed in colour (the last page with a light pencil scribble over image), pp. 46, [2], 8vo, original green cloth blocked overall in blind, a central frame and illustration on front board blocked in gilt, spine also blocked in gilt, gutta-percha partially perished with title-pages and first leaf of text consequently loose, ownership inscriptions on front flyleaf of T. Tindall Wildridge and ‘C.L. Dodgson’, with printed booklabel ‘This was the property of Lewis Carroll’ to front board, a bit rubbed, sound The inscription ‘C.L. Dodgson’, although in purple ink like Dodgson famously used, is clearly not by him, being written using a broad-nibbed pen and in handwriting completely alien to Dodgson’s personal style. It could be an early (and poor) forgery, or it could be a later addition meant to confirm a known (or believed) provenance. The ‘Property label’ on the front board, according to Lovett, was ‘perhaps.provided for buyers who wished to identify their purchases’ at the Sotheby’s 1902 sale of books purportedly from Carroll’s library and seems not to go back any further than there. This particular title is not listed by Lovett in Lewis Carroll Among His Books, or in any of the sources reproduced in Stern’s Lewis Carroll, Bibliophile.However, absence of positive evidence there is not proof that the book did not belong to Dodgson. The next owner, Thomas Tindall Wildridge, was an antiquary who is recorded as having made a group of pen-and-ink drawings of Alice and other characters, reproduced c.1910 as halfpenny postcards titled ‘A Lewis Carroll Pageant’, so his interest in owning something from Dodgson’s library would be appropriate and he may have attended the early library sales. On the other hand, he may have been duped by an unscrupulous seller who had access to the ‘Property’ labels.

        Mr. McKinlay's Explorations. Diary of Mr J. McKinlay, leader of the Burke Relief Expedition, being journal of explorations in the interior of Australia, together with chart

      Adelaide: Government printer, dated 9 October, 1862. Foolscap folio, 56 pp., four cartographic sheets, fine in recent burgundy cloth. First publication of McKinlay's exploration journal. Scarce and desirable: the first printing of the journal of John McKinlay in search of Burke and Wills, an expedition that revealed vast tracts of unknown territory in Northern Australia.In 1861 John McKinlay led the South Australian Relief Expedition in search of Burke and Wills. Although the true fate of the explorers at Cooper's Creek was revealed by Alfred Howitt and his men, it is possible that McKinlay found the remains of Charles Gray, a companion of Robert O'Hara Burke. McKinlay spoke with central desert tribesmen, who showed him the grave of a man they had killed and eaten: to this day it remains uncertain whether this was Charles Gray.Nonetheless, McKinlay and his party proceeded to explore the tropical north of Australia in the footsteps of Augustus Gregory and Ludwig Leichhardt, while making significant new discoveries. This report precedes the Melbourne published book titled McKinlay's Journals of Exploration in the Interior of Australia (Bailliere 1863) and was compiled directly from the journal presented by the explorer to the South Australian government upon his return to Adelaide in 1862. The report is notable for the four cartographic sheets, three of which comprise a detailed route map.
