        [COLLECTION OF 56 STEREOSCOPIC PHOTOGRAPHIC VIEWS FROM WATKINS' PACIFIC COAST SERIES, PRINCIPALLY DEPICTING SCENES IN YOSEMITE]

      San Francisco. 1867 [copyright date].. 56 stereoscopic albumen prints by Watkins, on original yellow card mounts (3 1/4 x 6 3/4 inches), with his 429 Montgomery Street address. Very good. In a modern half morocco and cloth box. Carleton Watkins was one of the finest 19th-century landscape photographers. The magnificence of the Yosemite Valley was unknown to settlers until 1849 and it remained so until Watkins brought photographic images of its extraordinary beauty to the public. Watkins' vistas of a serene and underpopulated land demonstrated the ideal harmony between man and nature. "The controlled grandeur of his views of the sublime is encoded not only with classical ideals of simplicity, geometry, and measure but also with a perception of the West as the primordial theatre of an authentically American place" - THE WAKING DREAM. These photographs helped clinch the notion that Yosemite was a relic of Eden in North America. Although Watkins is best known for his mammoth plate photographs, his work was also published as stereoscopic views. In July of 1861, Watkins first traveled to Yosemite equipped with a stereoscopic camera, taking 100 stereoscopic negatives. He returned to Yosemite between 1865 and 1866 which yielded an additional 300 stereoscopic negatives. The present collection includes fifty images of Yosemite (eleven from the first series taken in 1861, and thirty-nine from the second series taken between 1865 and 1866), as well as five images in San Francisco (including three Cliff House views; a July 4, 1864 image of Montgomery Street; and a view from Telegraph Hill), and an additional image of the entrance to the New Almaden, California mine. The collection is from an unusually early period, with the images on Watkins' yellow card mounts with his Montgomery Street address (images printed subsequently would be on orange cards and a different address post-1871). The stereoviews present here were printed between 1867 and 1868, with many including notice of his Paris International Exposition medal on verso. Photographic historian Peter Palmquist has noted: "As a landscape photographer Watkins is best remembered for his pictures of Yosemite. Not only did he achieve many of his artistic successes there, but Yosemite also became more widely known and appreciated because of his eloquence and vision." THE WAKING DREAM, GILMAN PAPER COMPANY COLLECTION, p.124. Peter Palmquist, CARLETON E. WATKINS, PHOTOGRAPHER OF THE AMERICAN WEST (Albuquerque, 1983).

        HISTOIRE DES BAROMETRES ET MANOMETRES ANEROIDES - BIOGRAPHIE DE LUCIEN VIDIE, INVENTEUR DU BAROMETRE ET DU MANOMETRE ANEROIDES. Signed copy.

      Paris E. Dentu, 1867.FIRST EDITION 1867, INSCRIBED BY THE AUTHOR. French text, 8vo, approximately 255 x 165 mm, 10 x 6½ inches, mounted photograph of Vidie as frontispiece, a few text illustrations, 408 pages plus 1 (Contents table), bound in contemporary half morocco, marbled sides, gilt dividing lines, raised bands with gilt rules and gilt lettering to spine, gilt top edges, marbled endpapers, silk marker.

Binding tight and firm. A very good copy of a scarce book. Born in Nantes (France), Lucien Vidie (1805 - 1866) began his career as a lawyer but soon turned to engineering, particularly the design of steam engines. The study of manometers awakened his interest in barometers. In c. 1844, he built and patented an efficient aneroid barometer. The instrument, however, did not meet with immediate success in France so he turned to the English market, where he was more fortunate. Auguste Laurant the author has inscribed the half - title: "Offert a M. Emil Gautier. Aug. Laurant 17 D. 67". MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE. FURTHER IMAGES ON REQUEST.

        The Adventures of a Griffin on a Voyage of Discovery. Written by Himself

      London: Bell and Daldy, 1867. Octavo, wood-engraved illustrations including frontispiece;original dark brown gilt-decorated cloth a little worn, gilt edges, becoming a little shaken in the binding with one gathering sprung. Scarce and attractive children's book, based on the experiences of Harden S. Melville on the Fly, with frontispiece and 29 other illustrations by Melville (the "Griffin") from his original sketches. Melville sailed with Francis Blackwood on the Fly in 1841 as artist for a voyage commissioned to make a detailed and scientific survey of northeast Australia, concentrating on the Great Barrier Reef. This book gives a lively account of the voyage of the Fly in Australian and Australasian waters, although the boat is here disguised as the Bluebottle. The thirty illustrations by Melville, range from a self-portrait of the young artist learning to draw (replete with portfolio under one arm, initialled "H.S.M"), through to depictions of life on the Australian coast: dancing a corroboree, throwing a boomerang, turning turtle at Bunkers Islands, or riding over Razorback, southwest of Sydney. The titlepage vignette, reproduced in gilt on the front board, shows Melville patiently sketching while being attacked by swarms of insects. Melville had earlier published the more sombre Sketches in Australia in 1849; both works are now difficult to find.

        Descriptive Astronomy

      Oxford University Press, 1867. Large thick octavo; with a total of 37 plates (some hand-coloured) and numerous diagrams throughout, a fine copy in contemporary polished calf (upper joint a little worn), spine ruled in gilt with morocco label. An attractive treatise on astronomy from the library of the Hobart Town watchmaker Francis Abbott 'one of the leading astronomers in Australia' (DNB). Abbott was sentenced two seven years transportation for fencing two watches and arrived in Van Diemen's Land in June 1845. He spent one year in a chain gang and another three as an assigned servant before obtaining a ticket-of-leave in early 1849. By all accounts an intelligent and energetic fellow, Abbott soon established a business in central Hobart selling and repairing watches, and was joined by his wife and family in 1850. Widely respected as a watchmaker, Abbot soon gained a reputation as an astronomer and meteorologist. This copy of Chamber's Descriptive Astronomy bears the bookplate reading 'Francis Abbott, Private Observatory, Hobart Town.' Indeed, his collection of books and scientific instruments was unparalleled in the colony at this time. Although an amateur, his skill was widely respected and Abbott was awarded membership to the Royal Astronomical Society of London while his climatic observations were utilised by the United States Meteorological Department in their standardised world charts. Between 1878-1880 Abbott published four books on astronomy in Hobart Town.

        Framed Document Signed as ad interim Secretary of War

      Washington 1867 - At the time that this document was signed, President Andrew Johnson was undergoing Impeachment proceedings. A week earlier he compounded his problems by firing Secretary of War Stanton and convincing Grant to fill the Cabinet position. Two months later both houses of Congress determined that it was illegal to fire Stanton and that he should be reinstated immediately. Grant, rather than to get caught up with the political controversy, walked away from President Johnson - both men refusing to speak to one another for the rest of their lives. 1 page on "War Department" letterhead, 9.75 x 7.75 inches, Washington, November 6, 1867 -- an uncommon partly printed document signed "U.S. Grant" as ad interim Secretary of War, a post he held for only eight weeks, informing Thomas J. Greggs: "You are hereby notified that the President of the United States has appointed you, for gallant and meritorious services during the war, a Captain by Brevet. Should the Senate at their next session, advise and consent thereto, you will be commissioned accordingly." Beautifully framed to 15.5 x 17.5 inches with a 4.5 x 3.75-inch copperplate portrait, along with a tan matte and black-and-gold frame.

        Military Map of India Shewing the Disposition of the Troops of the Bengal, Madras & Bombay Presidencies.

      London: Lithographed at the Topographical Depot of the War Office 1867 - Map dimensions 72.5 x 89.5 cm, overall dimensions 76 x 92.5 cm. A fascinating and detailed large folding map illustrating the deployment of troops across the Indian subcontinent and the adjacent British held territory in Burma, the map with original colour in outline further embellished with an intricate system of coloured symbols to denote the class of soldiers posted to a location, the map dissected into 12 sections and mounted on linen, a printed brief title label to one of the folded end sections. A very good example. The region is triangulated on the principal military stations with the distances between them indicated. The system of colouring denotes the type of soldier deployed (cavalry, artillery, sapper of infantry), whether they are "European" or "Native" and the size of the deployment (from regiment or battalion down to detachment) posted to a particular location. A secondary reference table to the lower right corner is unrelated to the geographical area covered in the map, but using the same colour coding it appears to illustrate British troop deployments in Singapore, Penang, Malacca, Labuan, China and Japan. A footnote to the map states that the map was update din the summer of 1868. Jewitt, Intelligence Revealed, T.841. Scarce, with the only other copy traced in the British Library. By their very nature, the intelligence maps produced by the Depot were printed in small numbers and were often destroyed after use.

        Framed Document Signed as ad interim Secretary of War

      Washington, 1867. unbound. 1 page on "War Department" letterhead, 9.75 x 7.75 inches, Washington, November 6, 1867 -- an uncommon partly printed document signed "U.S. Grant" as ad interim Secretary of War, a post he held for only eight weeks, informing Thomas J. Greggs: "You are hereby notified that the President of the United States has appointed you, for gallant and meritorious services during the war, a Captain by Brevet. Should the Senate at their next session, advise and consent thereto, you will be commissioned accordingly..." Beautifully framed to 15.5 x 17.5 inches with a 4.5 x 3.75-inch copperplate portrait, along with a tan matte and black-and-gold frame. The letter has horizontal folds and a small smudge in the left margin; overall a magnificent item in near fine condition. At the time that this document was signed, President Andrew Johnson was undergoing Impeachment proceedings. A week earlier he compounded his problems by firing Secretary of War Stanton and convincing Grant to fill the Cabinet position. Two months later both houses of Congress determined that it was illegal to fire Stanton and that he should be reinstated immediately. Grant, rather than to get caught up with the political controversy, walked away from President Johnson - both men refusing to speak to one another for the rest of their lives.

        Narrative of the Overland Expedition of the Messrs. Jardine , from Rockhampton to Cape York, Northern Queensland. Compiled from the Journals of the Brothers

      Brisbane: J.W. Buxton, 1867. Octavo, photographic portrait frontispiece, single lithographic plate and a large folding map at the rear; some foxing and toning, map with closed tear (now expertly repaired), cloth rubbed and a bit worn at extremities; a good copy in original cloth inscribed 'presented by the author January 1870'. Rare narrative of an important inland expedition across far north Queensland and Cape York, with an original mounted sepia frontispiece photograph of the brothers Frank and Alexander Jardine. This is the first edition of the 'official' narrative of the expedition, edited by Frederick Byerley from the journals kept by the Jardine brothers. Their 1864-5 expedition is recognized as one of the most adventurous and successful in the history of inland exploration. The two young brothers brought a large herd of cattle and all their men through to the very tip of Cape York, across land that had been traversed with such tragic results by Edmund Kennedy only fifteen years before. In the process, the brothers entered vast areas of unexplored wilderness and revealed promising stretches of good pasture. The party were in regular conflict with Aborigines, and lost most of their horses after they grazed upon poisonous plants. Surprisingly, Of the original herd of 250 cattle, only some 50 perished. In acknowledgement of their hardship and achievement, the Jardine brothers were admitted as members of the Royal Geographical Society and awarded its prestigious Murchison grant. Frank Jardine remained a pastoralist in north Queensland and later became an active figure in emerging pearling industry. He married Sana Sola, niece of the Samoan king Moliatoa, and died of leprosy in 1919. This rare book records one of the most remarkable personal achievements in Australia's history, the success of which was critical to subsequent settlement in the remote north-east of Australia. This copy includes the lithographic plate of Somerset (Cape York), noted by Wantrup as absent in some copies.

        Hetch Hetchy Flora: A Collection of Wildflowers Painted on May 22, 2013

      Santa Cruz, CA:: Peter & Donna Thomas,, 2014. First Edition. Hardcover. New. Donna Thomas. LIMITED EDITION of 35 copies, this is number 5. Accordion Fold Folio. [18] pp. 9 watercolor paintings of wildflowers, 1 watercolor painting of Hetch Hetchy Reservoir from O'Shaughnessy Dam, 1 watercolor map, five ornamental pages of handwritten and rubricated text; text clean, unmarked. Bound between blue morocco leather boards, front and back covers have wooden replicas of a plant press used in the early twentieth century by botanist Willis Jepson, water color front cover label; binding square and tight. Housed in a two-toned cloth covered clamshell box. Fine. This book was inspired by the work of Willis Linn Jepson (1867-1946), California's most distinguished botanist of the early twentieth century. Jepson's life-long interest in botany began in childhood; he graduated from the University of California in 1889, and received a PhD from the same institution in 1899, becoming professor emeritus at UC Berkeley in 1937. When Jepson was 25 years old in 1892, he was a founding member of the Sierra Club. Among his books is A Manual of the Flowering Plants of California (1925). Jepson collected plant specimens in the meadows of the Hetch Hetch Valley. Donna Thomas painted some of these same flowers and more on May 22, 2013 beside Hetch Hetchy Reservoir. Donna Thomas's original art work and calligraphed text were reproduced by digital printing processes onto Peter Thomas's handmade paper. These pages were then sewn onto larger sheets of loft dried granite-like paper Peter made for the book. The binding design is based on the structure of Jepson's plant press.

        Thesaurus Craniorum. Catalogue of the skulls of the various races of man, in the collection of Joseph Barnard Davis. With illustrations

      London: Printed for the subscribers, 1867. Octavo, two lithographic plates, illustrated, signed presentation to title-page; a very good copy in the original green cloth, a few bumps and wrinkles. Else fine. Author's presentation copy. Presentation copy of this uncommon work, listing the skulls in the collection of the physician and craniologist Joseph Barnard Davis (1801-1881). The work was presented by the author to Thomas Inman Esq., MD, presumably the man of that name who worked at the Liverpool Royal Infirmary and who published widely on medical research and mythology. In 1820, while he was still a student, Davies went as a surgeon in a whaling ship to the Arctic. Active in public health (he wrote on the cholera epidemics of 1830 for example), for many years Davis devoted himself to craniology and collected a huge museum of skulls and skeletons of various races. This 1867 publication provides a catalogue of his collection which is of great significance, not least because his actual collection was later given to the Royal College of Surgeons and mostly lost as part of the bombing in 1941. Davis was inspired by the pupil of Blumenbach, Sir William Lawrence, and the anatomical lectures of Joshua Brookes in London (several of the original Brookes specimens were purchased by Davis at the sale of Brookes' Museum of Comparative Anatomy when they were offered by James "the Phrenologist" Deville of the Strand, and are described here). By the 1860s Davis had become a firm supporter of the "diversity of origin of the races of man", and this book describes 1540 specimens, with a total of 25,000 separate measurements recorded, wherever possible in line with what he called the lesson of Blumenbach, to "always keep together with these treasures a collection of autograph letters, by which documentary evidence the genuine history of each is preserved". In total, the catalogue lists 24 mainland Australians and 12 Tasmanians (pp. 258-72). Davis' first purchases (nos. 15 & 16) were of two skulls of the "Adelaide Tribe", bought in 1848 of Matthew Moorhouse of South Australia, and which were quickly followed by 13 & 14, two further Adelaide Tribe skulls, all four "curiously prepared as vessels for carrying water" (vi). Other skulls were variously collected by C.P. Layard, W. Tolson, Major Morrison, George Rolfe, A. Watson, James Moorhouse, L.N. Fowler, Professor Reinwardt, Surgeon Goodwin RN, Dr. Grieg, and George A. Robinson, while a further two (nos. 1122 & 1123) were "purchased of the Commissioners for New South Wales Department of the International Exhibition of 1862." Two named men are also recorded, "Malgoey Bob" of NSW, "a well-known character of the colony" (no. 900), and "Carbon Will" of Moreton Bay, the man supposed to have killed Commandant Patrick Logan in 1830 (no. 1021). Even more remarkably, the last section of the catalogue is an overview of 140 (!) skulls of men and women from the Sandwich Islands. The great majority of the skulls were presented by W.L. Green Esq., of Honolulu, and Davis also thanks the late General William Miller as "the person who was the means, directly or indirectly, of bringing together the greatest number of specimens towards the formation of this Collection". In 1875 a supplement to the Thesaurus Craniorum was published by Davis.
