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

      J.W. Buxton, Brisbane 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. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

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

      Printed for the subscribers, London 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. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      G. Zimmer's Wwe.,, Krummau, 1867 - Krummau, G. Zimmer's Wwe., o. J. [vor 1867]. Leichte Gbrsp. - Stifter (1805-1868), geboren als Sohn einer armen Leinweberfamilie im Böhmerwald, kam er noch nicht vierzehnjährig an das Gymnasium des Benediktinerstiftes in Kremsmünster. 1826 begann er in Wien Jura zu studieren. Er besuchte Vorlesungen über Mathematik, Naturwissenschaften und Kunstgeschichte. Erste Gedichte veröffentlichte Stifter unter einem Pseudonym und widmete sich der Malerei. Noch zu Lebzeiten wurde Stifter als Dichter bekannt. Dieser Ruf verdeckt bis heute seine bildungspolitische Bedeutung. Er sah in der allmählichen Hebung des Bildungsstandes des Volkes die einzige Möglichkeit, die sozialen Verhältnisse grundlegend zu ändern. 1850 schlug er die Beamtenlaufbahn ein und wurde Inspektor der oberösterreichischen Volksschulen und 1855 Schulrat. Bereits 1847 bemühte sich Stifter an der Universität Wien öffentliche Vorträge "Über das Schöne" halten zu dürfen, die auch für Frauen zugänglich sein sollten. Deutsch

        Sturmgepeitschte Landschaft, 1867

      1867. Aquarell auf Papier, unten links signiert: "AReinhardt" und unten rechts datiert: "im April 1867", 25,1 x 35,3 cm. Auch wenn August Reinhardt seine Ausbildung zum Maler in Leipzig bei den beiden nazarenisch geprägten Malern Gustav Jäger (1808-1871) und Bernhard Neher (1806-1886) und später in Weimar bei Friedrich Preller d.Ä. (1804-1875) absolvierte, orientiert sich das vorliegende Blatt eher an den Werken der späten Ludwig Richter-Schule. Malweise und Bildgestaltung lassen an Victor Paul Mohn oder Albert Venus denken. Dieser Kreis wird Reinhardt nicht fremd gewesen sein, hatte er doch während seines Rom-Aufenthaltes 1852 bis 1854 Kontakt zu Heinrich Franz-Dreber, dem Lieblingsschüler Richters. Von ihm wird Reinhardt auch die Lockerung des Strichs erlernt haben, denn Dreber hatte zu jener Zeit die scharfe Feder Richters bereits gegen den weichen, malerischen Kohlestift getauscht, was dann auch Arnold Böcklin stark beeinflussen sollte. In der farblichen Durcharbeitung unseres Aquarells setzt Reinhart gezielt auf das Verlaufen und Übereinanderschichten der Farben, um nuancierte Abstufungen zu erreichen. Dies ergibt ein variationsreiches Farbenspiel, das nahezu vollständig auf die konturgebende Linie verzichtet. Die dürren, windgepeitschten Äste sorgen hierbei für einen spannenden Kontrast. So gelingt Reinhardt eine intensive Wiedergabe des aufziehenden Gewitters.

        Petroleum. (Correspondence, &c., Respecting Existence of, in New South Wales.)

      - Sydney, Govt Printer 1867. Foolscap folio sewn as issued (a bit used); 22pp, litho map & 2 plates, illustrations through the text. The first publication of any note on petroleum in Australia, or at least the possibility of it, and necessary investigations, results of examinations, and so on. The search seems to have been kicked off in 1866 by William Fane de Salis sending out a copy of Lesley's 1865 paper on the Kentucky petroleum basin, 'the only paper as yet published giving any reliable scientific account of the strata' in the hopes that comparative work could be done. That paper is reprinted here, from the copy kindly given by Murchison. What is not in this paper but is in the columns of The Empire is that the Minister for Lands ignored the offer of de Salis and that a Lands Department clerk responded 'the Minister for Lands does not consider it advisable to republish Mr Lesley's pamphlet as proposed by you'. Neither would the Lands Department, 'this incubus'. release Lesley's paper for The Empire to print, prompting the outraged columnist of The Empire to mutter darkly about the 'little games played some time ago in the matter of certain mineral lands at Illawarra'. 'Is there a disinterested and intelligent man in the colony who does not believe in his heart that the blowing of the Lands Office into perdition, with all its accumulated stores of red tape, useless maps, and sickening arrears of correspondence, would be one of the best things that could happen for the welfare of the community?' All this is not quite true, the correspondence in this paper tells a slightly different story but still, in all this is an education in the power of print, most obvious in the ability of the press to push along a recalcitrant bureaucracy but more interesting is the potency held by what was considered the sole copy of an otherwise unobtainable pamphlet. Lesley's paper itself is rare, certainly it was missed by Swanson's bibliography of oil and gas. It's almost unnecessary to add that this Australian paper also doesn't appear.
