        Reise der öesterreichischen Fregatte Novara um die Erde, in den Jahren 1857,1858, 1859...

      Vienna: 1861-, 1862. Three volumes, quarto, numerous folding maps and illustrations, folding map in rear endpaper sleeve of the first volume. Scarce record of the only major Austrian exploring expedition and circumnavigation. Under the command of Captain Bernard von Wüllerstorf-Urbair, the Novara travelled extensively throughout Oceania throughout 1857-1859 and visited both Australia and New Zealand. These three volumes form part of the official publication of the scientific results of the voyage. The author, Dr. Karl von Scherzer, was an anthropologist and linguist, and accordingly here contributes the ethnological description of the scientific results.At the encouragement of the former governor of New Zealand, with whom Captain Wüllerstorf-Urbair conversed while resting in Cape Town, the expedition visited Auckland where the Austrian geologists conducted skilful surveys in the volcanic regions of the North Island. Two Maori men, Wiremu Toeto and Hemera Rerehau, boarded the Novara and eventually returned to Austria. Here they joined the lavish welcoming parade, were feted by Viennese society, and eventually trained in the art of printing and lithography before returning to New Zealand. Before leaving Vienna, they were presented with a printing press, including fonts and associated tools, by the Emperor Franz Joseph. Interestingly, Dr. Scherzer himself trained as a typographer before commencing university studies, and may well have played a part in the training of Wiremu Toeto and Hemera Rerehau.The scientific results were published in 22 volumes over some 16 years. These three volumes by Dr. Scherzer form the first three volumes of the complete set, noted by Howgego for its scarcity. An abridged version was published shortly afterwards, and other contemporary editions included English and Italian translations. A few points of wear affect the joints but a fine bright set overall.

        Journal of Landsborough's Expedition from Carpentaria, in Search of Burke and Wills.

      Melbourne: Wilson and Mackinnon, 1862. Octavo, with a lithographic portrait frontispiece and large folding map measuring 656 x 794 mm.; in handsome half crushed morocco by Sangorski with gilt lettering and raised bands. The first public printing of Landsborough's journals from the Burke and Wills relief expedition, featuring a splendid large map of the Australian continent marked with the routes of all major inland exploration attempts.Although Landsborough was not successful in locating traces of the forlorn Burke and Wills expedition, he had a keen eye for good pastoral land. Indeed, prior to the formation of the Queensland relief expedition in 1861, Landsborough had been professionally employed in exploring and surveying the remote interior for private grazing interests. This training is reflected in his journal, and 'Landsborough's discovery of good pastoral land on his more extensive expeditions created greater contemporary interest and his journals were quickly made available to the public' (Australian Rare Books p.241).When Landsborough fell out with Frederick Walker, leader of the other Queensland relief expedition (and by many accounts a thoroughly unsavoury character), he proceeded south from the Gulf of Carpentaria to Cooper's Creek. Accordingly, his journal records much of the territory encountered by Burke and Wills on their tragic journey northward. Map expertly repaired and laid down. Very good condition.

The deficiency of labour is so great that any man who offers is hired as a shepherd, at wages equal to about £40 per annum, besides rations. This rich and healthy territory, which could easily maintain a population of 2,000,000, probably does not contain 200,000."The four maps in the volume are 1) The World (Route from the United Kingdom to the River Plate) 9 x 11¼ inches; outline coloring of South America and the British Isles. 2) Banda Oriental Republic of Uruguay; Route from Monte Video to Mercedes Estancia Maua: 9 x 5 3/4 inches w/ outline hand color. 3) Valley of the River Plate, Monte Video to Mercedes: 5 3/4 x 9 1/2 inches with outline hand color. 4) Estancia Mauà, Mercedes, Monte Video 1862.

        A Handbook for Colonists in Tropical Australia. By George Windsor Earl... Formerly Commissioner of Crown Lands at Port Essington...

      Singapore: printed for the editor, at Pinang, by Matthew Gregory Sr. 1862. Octavo, four plates (three folding) an excellent copy, the original blue printed wrappers bound in, early French owner's note to front wrapper, later quarter calf. The north coast of Australia: a proposal for settlement in remote northern Australia, written by a pioneer of the region and veteran of the Port Essington settlement of 1838 under Sir James Bremer, and published in Singapore.This detailed account covers the entire north coast of Australia from Victoria River in the west to Carpentaria and the northeast coast as far down as the Fitzroy River (near present-day Rockhampton). George Windsor Earl (?1813-1865) was an important figure in the repeated attempts to settle the north coasts of Australia. As early as 1830 he is reported to have visited the new Swan River colony as a settler, but he had long-harboured plans for establishing a settlement on the north coast of Australia. By 1835, having returned to London, he had recruited the support of the Asiatic Society and the Royal Geographical Society in just such a venture, with the result that the Alligator and the Britomart were dispatched to Port Essington under the command of Sir James Bremer as part of the North Australia Expedition of 1838. Earl joined the expedition as "linguist" and Commissioner of Crown Lands for Port Essington, and over the ensuing decade spent a great deal of time in Port Essington and also Sydney. Due to poor health he retired to Singapore and died attempting the return voyage to England in 1865.Earl issued this work, as he noted in his introduction, at a time when 'the stock stations of the Queensland colonists having extended northward nearly to the parallel of the head of the Gulf of Carpentaria, while a movement has taken place which looks like a general advance along the whole line of southern colonies into the Tropical Region.' The charts included in this edition were engraved by T. Black in Calcutta, and are of particular interest for Earl's interesting theories and notes on prevailing winds and currents: work which would duly be recognised by both Charles Darwin and Alfred Russel Wallace.Ferguson knew only two copies (his own collection and the Mitchell Library) and recognised the real rarity of this exotic Singapore imprint: 'A very rare work owing to its being printed and issued in the Straits Settlement. The introduction is dated from Province Wellesley, January 8, 1863.'. Paperstock browned uniformly; front wrapper slightly clipped, some war at head of spine to joints.

        On the germination, development and fructification of the Higher Cryptogamia and on the fructification of the Coniferae. Translated by Frederick Currey.

      London: Robert Hardwicke for the Ray Society, 1862. 1st Edition. Hardcover. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. 8vo (218x144 mm). xvii [1], 506 pp. With 65 lithographed plates numbered I-LXV by Tuffen West after the author's drawings. Original publisher's blind-stamped cloth, gilt-lettered spine, gilt emblem of the Ray Society on front cover (extremities slightly bumped, spine little sun-faded, small hole in cloth at spine), top edge gilt, otherwise untrimmed. Internally only little age-toned, very minor occasional spotting, few plates to the end starting to come loose. Good copy. ----Dibner 34 (this edition); Norman 1084 (this edition); DSB VI, p.465-7; Nissen BBi, 902. - SECOND EDITION, published only in English, of Vergleichende Untersuchungen. It incorporates a series of supplementary papers and some previously unpublished material, and was revised throughout by the author (Norman). "Entirely self-taught, Hofmeister attained full professorship and rank among the foremost botanists of the 1800s. He revealed the process of fertilization in non-flowering plants (cryptogams) as a regular alternation of sexual and asexual generations in the mosses, ferns, horsetails and liverworts. The asexuel generation propagated by means of spores, alternating with one in which spermatozoids unite with ova." (Dibner 34). In 1851 Hofmeister's most famous work, Vergleichende Untersuchungen, appeared. Without a word of introduction it begins: "The mature plant of Anthoceros appears..." The details of its structure and life history are described and copiously illustrated, entirely on the basis of original observations, followed by a brief critique of earlier work on the genus. A similar description of the next plant's life history is followed by others, in order of increasing complexity. The amount of new information is immense; the errors are minor and do not affect the overall picture. In a concluding three-page 'Review' the concept of alternation of generations is explained, and the main modifications of the life history in the different groups are briefly touched upon. Clearly, a page-by-page reading is presupposed, not from the author's arrogance but from his failure to comprehend that others might be less deeply involved. The illustrations are largely from microscopic preparations; prerequisite knowledge of the gross features of the plants would enable the reader to correlate the details. With this single publication, the core of botany passed from its Middle Ages to the modern period. The book was obviously so important that the two main German botanical journals carried very laudatory reviews by their editors. Although sensing that a revolution had come, they seemed overpowered and possibly did not quite understand exactly what had happened. Not so Henfrey. He promptly wrote the sorely needed commentary, brought in the flowering plants directly, put together a plate to illustrate crucial homologies, provided the elementary textbook-type table of comparative life cycles, and brought it all from the level of the research worker down to that of the student. This work was forthwith translated into German. As issued, Vergleichende Untersuchungen tended to collapse with heavy reference or textbook use. This explains its rarity. Two proposals, in 1852 and 1853, to prepare an English translation were unrealized. During the next decade Hofmeister published a series of supplementary papers, all of which were incorporated into a second edition, which exists only in English, translated by F. Currey, secretary of the Linnean Society, and published in 1862. Despite Henfrey's valiant efforts, English botany had remained largely unaware of the Hofmeisterian revolution. Obviously, the publication of Darwin's Origin of Species made a belated English translation imperative. Hofmeister's pre-Darwinian work constitutes the greatest broad evolutionary treatise in botany because it is organized on a basis of increasing complexity." (DSB VI, p.466). Very Good.

After this publication Turgenev prepared the novel for the separate edition by editing the text: he added dedication to his mentor and liberal critic Belinsky (1811-1848) which served as an important message to friends and enemies and pointed to democratic nature of the novel. He also removed some of Bazarov's unpleasant features (some call him first Bolshevik in Russian literature). In his letter to Gertsen he wrote: «...while inventing Bazarov I wasn't angry with him, but felt attraction... I don't feel guilty because of him... it was tough to make him a wolf and yet to defend him...». The novel examined the conflict between the older generation, reluctant to accept reforms, and the nihilistic youth. Turgenev wrote that he got the idea for this book on the beach at Ventnor, England, in August, 1860, but that Bazarov was really based on a person he knew, a «Dr. D.» He finished writing it on his Russian estate in July of 1861, and published it in March, 1862, in The Russian Herald, a magazine that had become conservative. Before this book, liberal Russian critics had praised his realistic depictions of the serfs. But they considered his depiction of Bazarov here to be an attack on liberalism, and reactionary Russian conservatives praised the author. Turgenev, however, stated that he tried to obey aesthetic truth rather than write political propaganda. Fathers and Sons was set during the six-year period of social ferment, from Russia's defeat in the Crimean War to the Emancipation of the Serfs. Hostile reaction to Fathers and Sons prompted Turgenev's decision to leave Russia. Turgenev lived mostly in France and the West, following opera singer Mme Viardot, her husband and children. Turgenev's works were translated into French but it was not until about 1894 that Constance Garnett first translated them into English. Turgenev's style had a great effect on those writers who followed the banners of naturalism or realism. He was praised by Flaubert and Henry James and William Dean Howells.

        South Australia. Constitution, Electoral, and Parliamentary Privilege Acts. May, 1862.

      Adelaide: W.C. Cox, 1862. Duodecimo, 18, 52, 7 pp., original blue stiff wrappers, signature of J.D.Woods and J. Hindmarsh repeated a number of times, neat stamp for Webster collection; an excellent copy in fine original condition, spine a little frayed, preserved in handsome folding blue morocco box. Very rare: no other copy recorded. A most appealing copy of a rare Adelaide-published legal handbook, printing three early South Australian Acts. This work is of great significance as a remarkably early Australian legal work, the more so as it has the ownership signatures of two contemporary South Australian figures influential in law and politics.The work prints the Constitution Act of 1855-6; the 1861 Electoral Act; and the 1858 Privilege Act. A single copy of a similar but later work is recorded in the State Library of New South Wales (Constitution, electoral, contractors in parliament, parliamentary privilege and issue of writs Acts, Adelaide, 1873), but we have not been able to locate any other copy of this earlier work.With the ownership signature of John Hindmarsh Junior, son of the first Governor of South Australia, who had returned to England with his mother in 1841 and trained as a barrister at the Middle Temple. Hindmarsh returned to South Australia in 1855 where he established himself in practice: the present work would have been a logical addition to his library. There is also the later ownership signature of J.D. Woods, "returning officer for West Adelaide", and known to have been active in the late-1860s and 1870s.

        Book of Nonsense, A

      London: Routledge, Warne, and Routledge, 1862. Early Edition of Edward Lear's "Book of Nonsense" LEAR, Edward. A Book of Nonsense. Sixth Edition. with Many New Pictures and Verses. London: Routledge, Warne, and Routledge. [ca. 1862]. Sixth edition (first published in 1846). Oblong small quarto (5 7/16 x 8 3/8 inches; 138 x 212 mm.). [1, title, verso with publishers monogram], [1, dedication , verso blank], [112] leaves, printed on one side of the leaf only. With 112 woodcuts after designs by the author. Leaf 73 expertly repaired at blank fore-margin, last leaf with neat strengthening of inner gutter. Small oval blind-stamp of Hale & Howorth, Manchester on front blank. Publisher's quarter red cloth over tan pictorial boards with the title-page Limerick repeated on the front and rear boards. An excellent example of an early edition. "The publication in 1846 of Edward Lear's A Book of Nonsense heralded the arrival of a new literary genre. For centuries nonsense had flourished in the folk tradition of many countries-snatches of it are found in the plays of Aristophanes and Shakespeare, a setting down of the traditional utterances of the Fool. In England such oral nonsense was handed on from generation to generation in nursery rhymes and mummers' plays, and it was not until 1846-at a time when the oral tradition was beginning to disappear-that Old Derry down Derry, the traditional fool of the mummers, appeared as the author of A Book of Nonsense, and nonsense was brought into the literary fold…The limericks which make up the first edition were written and illustrated during the 1830s, but were not published until February 10th, 1846" (Vivian Noakes, Introduction to Nonsensus, compiled by Justin G. Schiller).
