        A previously unrecorded photograph of Tom Wills, cricketer and pioneer of Australian Rules Football

      Albumen print photograph, carte de visite format, 92 x 58 mm, mount 103 x 63 mm; blind stamped at lower left P. Dawson Photographer Hamilton; blank verso; the albumen print with light marks and staining; Tom Wills is standing in the back row, fourth from right, wearing a striped shirt. The photographer, Patrick Dawson of Hamilton in Victoria's Western District, is listed by Davies & Stanbury (Mechanical Eye) as being active at his premises in Gray Street between 1866 and 1868. During 1866 Tom Wills was in the Western District recruiting and coaching Aboriginal cricketers who worked on various stations in the region. In the summer of that year he took a team of Aboriginal players to Melbourne to play a match against the Melbourne Cricket Club on Boxing Day. The players he had selected, taught and managed were to form the nucleus of the Aboriginal cricket team which toured England in 1868 under the guidance of Charles Lawrence. In the light of the present previously unrecorded photograph, perhaps it is no coincidence that it was also Patrick Dawson who was later to photograph the Aboriginal cricketers in the same Gray Street studio before their departure for England. Dawson produced a famous montage of his portraits of the individual players in this group (see State Library of Victoria,Accession no. H5233). The eminent Australian cricket historian, Tom Thompson, has identified the present photograph as the Victorian team that played against NSW in the Inter-colonial match at the MCG, December 26-30 1867, which Victoria won by 7 wickets.Tom Wills is back row, fourth from right;William Hayman, the manager, is front centre (Hayman was owner of Lake Wallace Station in the Western District and, like Wills, played an important role in introducing local Aboriginal men to the game of cricket; he was to manage the Aboriginal team on its tour of England); lower right is Cosstick; the new bowling sensation Frank Allen, a wiry 17 year old is second left (standing); other players are Wardill, Gibson, Conway, Kelly, Robertson, Campbell, Greaves and Bennett. Wills took 5/55 in the first innings, and Allan 5/59 on debut which Hayman noted was "unprecedented". In the second innings Allen took 3/43 and Wills 4/94. Dick Wardill scored the first century at the MCG, which was also the first first-class hundred ever scored in Australia. The NSW team was captained by Charles Lawrence, who captained the Aboriginal team on its tour of England.

        The ornithology of Australia : being illustrations of 244 Australian birds, with descriptive letter-press.

      A rarely offered complete set of one of the most important Australian ornithological publications of the nineteenth century. [Brisbane : Printed for the author by T.P. Pugh, 1866-1870]. Folio, nineteenth century gilt-lettered cloth (joints a little worn), bookplate to the front pastedown of English ornithologist George Dawson Rowley, manuscript list of plates tipped-in, manuscript title leaf supplied (lacking the printed title), unpaginated, 126 hand-coloured lithographed plates, heightened with gum arabic, each with an accompanying leaf of descriptive letterpress, occasional foxing; a very good copy. English-born naturalist, artist and musician Sylvester Diggles arrrived in Sydney at the end of 1853 and settled in Brisbane in January 1855. In 1859 he became one of the founders of the Queensland Philosophical Society, and in 1861 he established the Brisbane Philharmonic Society. Diggles' principal interests in the natural sciences were ornithology and entomology, and his The ornithology of Australia was first issued in Brisbane as 126 plates in 21 parts, without text, between 1866 and 1870. It is not known how many sets were issued, but unquestionably the number was small. These plates covered about one third of the known bird population of Australia. However, due to lack of funds, Diggles had to discontinue the project. Between 1870 and 1875, bound versions were issued which included descriptive text, and also a title-page either in manuscript or basically printed. There are a few copies known to have a title-page ornately printed in colour, but these all seem to have some variation, as "Diggles evidently used this title-page for copies which he regarded as important" (Pigott, The Bird man of Brisbane, 2010, p.110). The work was reissued under a separate title in 1877. Rare; only three complete sets recorded at auction in the past 70 years. Ferguson 9146, 9147, 9148; Nissen IVB, 247 Provenance : George Dawson Rowley (1822-1878), his bookplate to front pastedown and initialled note to title page Dudley Dickison (1896-1967), sold at auction by Peter Arnold, 17 September 2007 (lot 12) Private collection, Australia

        The Book of Roses

      Boston: J.E. Tilton and Company, 1866. First Edition. Hardcover. Good. Inscribed to Parkman's protege "Jackson Dawson with kind regards of [signed] F. Parkman 14 Dec. 1871" on first blank. 225pp. Original mauve cloth with gilt lettering, brown endpapers. First edition, first printing. An unsophisticated Good- copy that could use repair as its front and rear hinges are split, with head missing and exposed headband, spine-sunned and edge-worn cloth. A trail of light staining to fore edge. Internally in much better shape with relatively bright, clean pages; small spot of sticker damage to front free endpaper. A scarce signature by the author, a Harvard professor of Horticulture and historian who is best known for his books The Oregon Trail and the seven volume France and England in North America.Also nice horticultural association copy. In the 2015 article "Filing a Missing Rose Claim: Jackson Dawson and the Arnold Rose" Benjamin Whitacre outlines the story of how Parkman brought Rosa rugosa to the US from Asia in 1861 and hired Dawson as its propagator. Dawson proved to be a master of hybridization, creating the Arnold Rose. Despite the Arnold Rose's commercial failure and Dawson's subsequent eclipse, it apparently became known as the "America" rose in 1895 and made a lasting impact in rose-growing circles under that guise.

        Influence of Distance from and Nearness to an Insane Hospital on its Use by the People."

      Separately printed from the American Journal of Insanity, XXII, January 1866, pp 361-406. This publication paginated 1-46. - *The Jarvis Law* Dr. Edward Jarvis (1803-1884) conducted a study in 1866 to determine how much a factor distance from an "insane hospital" was in regards to people using the facility. It sounds like an obvious-enough question with a probably-obvious answer, but these things are really never so until someone actually looks at the data and extracts an answer. And so Dr. Jarvis performed this function, answering the question once and for all that yes, indeed, the further away you are from a facility the less likely you are going to be to use it, and thus we have Jarvis' Law. "Mental health researchers have long considered the importance of distance on psychiatric service use. Systemic analyses regarding the relationship between distance and the use of mental health care can be traced back to the mid nineteenth century, when Edward Jarvis identified inverse associations between home-to-hospital distance and the rates of admission to Oneida County Hospital of New York and the Kentucky Lunatic Asylum in Fayette County. He claimed that people living near psychiatric hospitals send more patients there for admission than do those living far away (Jarvis’s law).The study also revealed urban–rural differences in the prevalence of insanity, and high admission rates to psychiatric hospitals among people residing near the city center. Jarvis’s law has been identified in numerous studies since the mid-twentieth century."--Kuon-Chiao Tseng, et al, "Travel Distance and the Use of Inpatient Care among Patients with Schizophrenia", Adm Policy Ment Health. 2008 Sep; 35(5): 346–356, published online 2008 May 30 ***Nice copy in original wrappers.

        FRAMED AUTOGRAPH LETTER, Signed, on '35 South Street' stationery. To a Madame Schwabe (?). Dated July 24, 1866

      London, 1866. A very nice, framed VG+ ALs from this Champion of the Nursing profession, which shows a hint of aging & wear to the extremities. Frame is modern, showing little wear. On rear, affixed printed appraisal sticker, from one Robert J. Connelly.. Letter: 7-3/4" x 5-1/8". Frame: 13" x 10-1/4" A fully signed letter from Nightingale to Madame Schwabe (?) requesting tickets to a Jenny Lind July 30th concert performance, "if they are still to be had." Johanna Maria Lind, better known as Jenny Lind, was a Swedish opera singer. Lind, often known as the "Swedish Nightingale", married her condutor/pianist, Otto Goldschmidt, February 5, 1852, near the end of her US tour, in Boston. They returned to Europe initially, and, from 1855 on, lived in England for the rest of their lives. Although she refused all requests to appear in opera after her return to Europe, Lind continued to perform in the concert hall. One such occasion was July 13, 1866, where she appeared with Arthur Sullivan, and the Times subsequently reported, "there is magic still in that voice ... the most perfect singing - perfect alike in expression and in vocalization. ... Nothing more engaging, nothing more earnest, nothing more dramatic can be imagined." No doubt, reading such a review, Ms Florence Nightingale sought to avail herself of a subsequent performance. An-in-all, a lovely artifact for those who wish to have a tangible, physical connection to the "The Lady with the Lamp".

With hundreds of wood engravings in text, 17 chromoxylographed maps, 36 tinted lithographed plates and 11 chromolithographed plates. Volume 1 in modern red half morocco, gilt edges. Volume 2 in contemporary half morocco, gilt edges. Atlas volume in modern red half morocco.

      Cordier, Indosinica, cols. 1012-1013; Cordier, Sinica, cols. 329-330; Gomane, L'exploration du Mekong; Satow 147. Rare complete but composite set of the first edition of a travelogue and scientific study of Indochina, published as the results of a French expedition in Indochina. The expedition was formed to examine the navigability of the Mekong river and thereby bolster French confidence in the colonial adventure in Indochina. Over the course of two years the expedition under the leadership of the navy officer Ernest Doudart de Lagrée and subsequently under Francis Garnier, would travel almost 9000 km between Saigon and Shanghai.The resulting publication was limited to just 300 copies. The first volume, written by Garnier, is a travelogue of the harrowing journey through Southeast Asia. Although this official account was heavily censored by the French Naval Ministry, a more complete version of this text had previously been published in instalments in the journal Le tour du monde. Garnier presents an adventure where the expedition leader died, its members were rifled with disease and ultimately made a long journey barefoot due to the total disintegration of the expeditioners' shoes. A description of the expedition's detour to the temple complex of Angkor Wat did much to propagate the image of Angkor in Europe. The hundreds of woodcuts after drawings made by Louis Delaporte illustrate the monuments, landscapes and people of Indochina. A second volume presents the scientific findings of the expedition and contains contributions on topics such as meteorology, geology, mineralogy, anthropology and botany. The large-scale atlas volume contains numerous maps, and lithographs of the most spectacular of Delaporte's drawings, including some in colour.Volume 1 with library stamp. Water damage throughout and large tears in the final page repaired with Japanese paper. Binding of volume 2 worn at the extremities, spine damaged at the head and foot, pages slightly discoloured. Atlas volume with minor foxing. Good composite set, with the atlas volume in very good condition.

Arago was attached to the expedition as official artist, and first published a narrative of the voyage as Promenade autour du monde . The Souvenirs is a more elaborate work, augmented with many new illustrations. The present "richly illustrated edition of the Souvenirs is much prized" (Hill), and the third volume is almost entirely devoted to Hawaii.Occasionally slightly foxed, large stain on last leaves of the second volume, otherwise in very good condition.

        [THE FATHER OF RUSSIAN PHYSIOLOGY] Refleksy golovnogo mozga [i.e. Reflexes of the Brain]

      St. Petersburg: A. Golovachov, 1866. [4], II, 186 pp. 8vo. Contemporary quarter-leather binding. The name of the author and the book title as well as owner's initials in gilt on the spine. Owner's private stamp on the title. Some side foxing on the first seven pages of the text and on the last five. The top of the spine has been restored. Overall copy is in good condition. Very rare. First edition of the ground-breaking work that established the basis of the Russian School of Physiology. Ivan Mikhailovich Sechenov (1829-1905) single-handedly created this field of Russian science, by introducing electrophysiology and neurophysiology into medical laboratories. This is one of the main works by Sechenov. Originally an article with the same name was to be printed in Sovremennik, the most influential periodical of the time, but thst was forbidden by the censor, and it was published in 1863 in the medical journal, Meditsinsky vestnik. The expanded book version, now a classic text, appeared four years later. This work marked the beginning of the era of objective physiology. Sechenov demonstrated that since reflexes cannot occur without external stimuli, physiological activity is brought about by stimuli that act on the sense organs. He made a significant contribution to our knowledge of reflexes by determining that reflexes depend not only on current stimuli but also on past influences. Sechenov believed that the retention of vestiges in the central nervous system is the basis for memory; inhibition is the mechanism for the selective control of behavior; and the operation of the amplifying mechanism of the brain is the foundation for motivation. Ivan Pavlov, the most famous of Sechenov's pupils, called him "the father of Russian physiology".

        Illustrated manuscript on paper entitled "Ogawajima geigei kassen" ["Battle for Whales at Ogawa Island"]. 14 double-page & 19 single-page finely drawn images heightened with wash color. 42 folding leaves. 8vo (240 x 168 mm.), orig. semi-stiff wrappers, manuscript title label on upper cover, new stitching

      Date on the final leaf: "Copied 1866." There are two early great Japanese works on traditional whaling: the first is the anonymous Isanatori ekotoba [trans.: An Illustrated Treatise on Whaling], first published in 1829. The other is the present work, which has always remained in manuscript. The earliest manuscript of this text was written in 1840 and this is one of several copies, directly taken from the original. We learn from the colophon leaf that the original manuscript was located in the village of Yobuko (Saga Prefecture), close to Ogawa Island, and that the scribe of our copy was "Yotei Yamauchi" and the artist was "Churo Iseda." Yobuko was a famous whaling town for the Karatsu feudal clan in the Edo period and the most prominent whaling family was the Nakao. A member of the seventh generation of the Nakao clan - Jinroku Nakao - commissioned Hoshutei to write this account of whaling. This finely illustrated manuscript is a detailed account of traditional whaling. The text begins with the preparations necessary for a whaling expedition. The illustrations, in vivid color, depict species of whales; their anatomy; harpoons and other weapons; the ships (with lists of tools and other equipment required); the Nakao family's factory on Ogawa Island, consisting of warehouses, the area where the whale carcass is cut up, offices, the shrines for the dead whales, bathhouses for the workers; women repairing nets; making ropes and nets; construction of whaling ships; celebrations before and after whaling expeditions; the departure of whaling ships; a map of the area (with the whaling factory at Ogawajima depicted); the successful hunt (graphically depicted in several illustrations); transporting the whales back to the factory; the cutting up of the whale; rendering of oil from blubber; oil tanks; cutting up of the bones of the whale; the accounting department; shaving the fins; a memorial service for the whale; etc. The whale oil was used as an insecticide in rice fields and the blood of the whale was an important fertilizer. While there is some relatively minor worming, which has been carefully repaired, our manuscript is in fine condition.
