        Vlaggenkaart, 1868.

      EERSTE AMERIKAANSE OVERZICHT VAN "S WERELDS ZEEVARENDE NATIES."Johnson's new chart of national emblems"'. Staalgravure uitgegeven te New York door Alvin Jewett Johnson in 1868 als onderdeel van de Family Atlas. In de tijd met de hand gekleurd. Afm. 46,2 x 67,5 cm.Hoewel gebruikelijk in Europa, in het bijzonder bij Engelse uitgevers, was Johnson was de eerste Amerikaanse kaartenmaker die een overzicht met nationale vlaggen en emblemen in een atlas opnam. Buitengewoon praktisch in havensteden als New York en Boston, waar marine- en koopvaardijschepen uit de hele wereld aanlegden. Hoewel de burgeroorlog in 1868 eigenlijk al voorbij is, bevat de gravure naast een vlag met 35 sterren van de Verenigde Staten ook nog een vlag van de "Confederate States of America (so called)"', de Zuidelijke Staten dus, die de oorlog hadden verloren. In latere edities van de atlas verdwijnt deze vlag.De prent bevat verder een aantal 19de-eeuwse nieuwigheden waaronder de American Jack (de blauwe vlag met alleen sterren), de Belgische vlag, de vlag van San Salvador, de vlag van Siam, de vlag van het eiland Man en verschillende Pruisische vlaggen. De vlag van de Engelse East India Company staat er nog wel op, de vlag van Verenigde Oostindische Compagnie inmiddels niet meer.Prijs: € 650,-.

        MEIJI JIDAI SHUN-PON: MEIJI PERIOD 'PILLOW BOOK.' A Color Woodblock-Printed Erot

      Japan n.d. ca 1868-70. Cloth covered accordion folded album,. very clean, contains two series of color woodblock prints,. first group 12 lovely polychrome works, 18.5 x 12.2 cm., 2nd. group on the verso 12 key-block with 3-4 colors each.OBSCURE. A LOVELY MEIJI PERIOD MARUYAMA OKYO SCHOOL EROTIC BOOK The first part of the album has a signature and seal of Maruyama Okyo [1733-1795]. Clearly this is not the actual work of Okyo at all, but an attempt by some later unsung Meiji period artist to use a famous name to sell his work. The album is in the "style" or "school" of Okyo and that is far as it goes. The printing colors, are clearly Meiji period woodcuts. * The first part is a lovely example of 12 Meiji period color woodcut prints. They are all done with large composition, in a bold style. For the most part focusing on the genitals and the object of love making. The subject of each print is: 1. Couple kissing. 2. Penetrating the vagina with a huge penis. 3. He is stimulating her clitoris. 4. A huge penis is preparing to enter the vagina which is -being stimulated by two finders. 5. Two Japanese women engaged in an embrace; one licks two -fingers in readiness to stimulate the other's clitoris. 6. Huge penis penetrates the vagina. 7. She stimulates her clitoris as the penis enters. 8. She holds his erect penis preparing to guide it into her -vagina. 9. A priest kisses a woman. 10. She stimulates her vagina, while the erect penis -prepares to enter. 11. He pulls her Kimono back revealing her awaiting vulva. 12. He enters her vagina from the rear. Signature and red -cinnabar Hanko/chop/seal of Maruyama Okyo. * Second Part: On the verso of the above are a series of 12 other woodcut prints, mostly done in black key block outline, with a pastel or two added. Each various love-making acts, and the couples engaged. One he licks his fingers preparing to wet her vagina. Erotic dialogue is in the background of each. The artist's name is not cited anywhere, which was common for such "banned" books or illegal books. * The album leaves are covered in a crushed silver clamshell with gesso to make a shiny, pearl-like color and texture, the prints are then laid down on this surface. The album is covered in a brocade silk, of a delicate nature. * CONDITION: The condition is very clean and nice, both series of prints are immaculate and without flaw. There is a small round scuff to the blank title slip, otherwise the corners are rubbed to the smallest degree, all solid and in lovely condition. * This like other erotic albums and books of the the time these were not authorized nor did they have an official "censor's seal" as there were above the Shogunate laws. Issued in small numbers and either sold or distributed discreetly, this kind of "Shun-pon" or erotic book was used as gifts to virginal couples on their wedding night, commonly called "Pillow Books" or "Makura Zoshiki." A euphuism for licentious books enjoyed across all spectrum of Japanese society, commonly bought, sold or traded on the black market. Because they were officially "banned" by the Shogunate, artists, wood block carvers and printers risked severe punishment if caught anywhere in the process, these were strictly driven "underground" but nevertheless thrived during the Edo and Meiji periods, right down to the Taisho and Showa times. * Each erotic print commonly had a dialogue of the exchanges between the man and woman, erotic love-making words and sentences to encourage or compliment the other, filled the backgrounds of most prints. This album contains a large number of these dialogues and are quite readable if not memorable, telling him "what a large penis" he has, while he tells her what a "strong vagina she has" &c... The Japanese were extremely "natural" about openness in love-making and also the genre of erotic prints and books. Their healthy if not erotic aptitudes were the norm and acceptable throughout all of Japanese society until the end of World War II, when prostitution was still acceptable, but continued under the guise of not officially being sanctioned. * BIBLIOGRAPHY: L.

        Kaidai Hyaku Senso, Katagiri Touichi Katsumoto

      Ohashi (printer) 1868 - A stunning coloured woodblock print of Katagiri Touichi Katsumoto, advisor of Hideyoshi and a famous warrior, showing him writing a letter at his desk (instead of fighting), probably as Hideyoshi and his council were known for their negotiation skills. This print is by the famous artist Tsukioka Yoshitoshi (also known by the name of Taiso Yoshitoshi). Born in 1839, Yoshitoshi became famous in Japan as a ukiyo-e and nishiki-e artist for his `bloody prints` of people, mostly warriors, suffering graphic and grizzly deaths. This print is part of his Kaidai Hyaku Senso (Selection of One Hundred Warriors) series. It has been backed with washi paper and trimmed at the margins. The printing is of excellent quality and the colours bright. There are a few minor marks and small wormholes. Otherwise the print is nice and bright. Text in Japanese. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Hayes as secretary of state in January 1868, a position he filled for only one year; elected to the state senate later in 1869, he died at age 42 before taking office, and the future president spoke at his funeral. Printed DS, 2pp (4pp lettersheet), 7½" X 9 3/4", Columbus, OH, 1868 January 22. Very good. Two original horizontal folds; blank fourth line rather age toned. In this unusual Printed Document Signed, the brand-new secretary of state officially transmits "a true copy of a Joint Resolution of the General Assembly of the State of Ohio, 'Relating to withdrawing the assent of the State of Ohio, from the Proposed XIV Constitutional Amendment,' adopted January 15th, 1868...." He signs large and bold in blue ink at lower right, and at lower left is a large circular blind-embossed official "Seal of the Secretary of State of Ohio." The 13th Amendment of course abolished slavery, while the 14th Amendment was one of the Reconstruction Amendments created to grant freed slaves citizenship and other equal protections under the law. Ratification required approval from three-quarters of the states, but like any constitutional amendment it was hotly contested. Ohio was actually among the first group of 28 states to ratify it, but because of squabbles over various sections they here rescind that approval. The second page (3rd lettersheet leaf) consists of the full text of the resolution withdrawing their ratification, dated January 15, 1868 and signed in type by the Speaker of the Ohio House of Representatives (John F. Follett) and the President of the Ohio Senate (J.C.Lee). New Jersey and Oregon also rescinded their votes, but by July 20, 1868 the required votes were gathered and the 14th Amendment was officially ratified. At the time Russell signed this document he had been Ohio's secretary of state for less than one week. A wonderfully provocative, scarce and curious document that would have been printed in a small quantity for distribution to various officials-- and picturesque, printed in a variety of ornate typefaces. Ohio, by the way, did not officially re-ratify the 14th Amendment (that is, withdraw its rescindment) until March 12, 2013!

        MUTSU DEWA KOKUGUN KOOTEI ZEN ZU: COMPLETE MAP OF MUTSU AND DEWA PROVINCES WITH

      N.p. [1868], Gyokuransai. A large color woodblock printed. map, 1 meter 45.5 x 92 cm.,minor old worming, else very good. hand-printed woodblocks, pastel vegetal dyes, handmade paper. symbol key, beautifully executed with superb charm. R A R E. A FAMOUS COLOUR MAP BY SADAHIDE-STAR PUPIL OF KUNISADA Sadahide [1807-1873] was an excellent artist and stylist. He was an Ukiyo-e painter who dogged foreigners in Yokohama,and made large numbers of "Yokohama E" or prints of foreigners; he was also know for his lovely landscape prints often done in a series of three single but matching prints ie tryptich, that again connected to other groups of three to form a long panoramic panel of views of famous sights & Shogun or Imper- ial processions. He lived in Edo & worked under the master painter & Ukiyo-e print-maker Kunisada I. He was a prolific print maker and cartographer. His "Bird's Eye View" maps are among the most spectacular and decorative ever done in the mid 19th century, and show a high degree of artistic skill, understanding of composition and three-dimensional drawing. He was truly a unique and creative artist and far ahead of his time. * This map is a prime example of his keen ability to imagine, or project himself above the land, as if he were floating in a balloon, while he sketched the country side. Per Namba..."maps of Mutsu & Dewa [provinces] in the North- eastern part of Honshuu, were not published at all until 1868 [first year of the restoration of the Meiji Emperor to the seat of power], the last year of the Edo period, when the Shogunate collapsed." This most charming map shows the coast, mountains, rivers, lakes in a pictorial and highly artistic manner. * WHO WAS HASHIMOTO GYOKURANSAI: His works are always graphically pleasant to view and have a magical charm. His use of delicate and pastel vegetal colors was a confirmation of his committment to the use of traditional coloring, while many of his contemporaries were enthralled with the new aniline or foreign pigments, that made so many Meiji prints garish and bright. This work is truly superb for and ready framing and library display. All of his maps are quite R A R E ! Cited and illu- strated on 4 full pages in color in in M. Namba: OLD MAPS IN JAPAN as plate #46 pp.86-89, with text on p.190. Due to the very large nature of this map, and difficuly to get a good digital photo we have also posted a scanned from the above book, which shows this map in all its color, large size and glory. Sadahide was also one of eleven Japanese woodblock print-makers who presented their artistic examples at the Paris Exposition of 1866, receiving the Legion d'Honneur. This map folds down to about 18 x 26 cm. * BIBLIOGRAPHY: * L. Roberts: DICTIONARY OF JAPANESE ARTISTS: p.135. [A major woodblock print artist of the mid-19th Century.

        Kaisei Kyomachi on'ezu Saiken Taisei Rakuchu Rakugai Chocho Shoumei Zen

      Japan: Takehara Kobei, 1868. unbound. Color woodblock case map. Measures 68 1/2 x 55 inches. Folded into the case it measures 14 1/2 x 9 inches. Impressive, large scale, Japanese map of Kyoto was published in 1868 or the fourth year of the Keio era. It covers the city of Kyoto, the ancient capital of Japan, and its surroundings. Includes directional orientation near the four borders. Printed in Japanese, the map shows relief pictorially and notes streets, waterways, rice paddies and important buildings. Numerous important temples are also identified, including the famous Hiei Mountain in the upper left. Kyoto was one of the only two cities (the other was Nara) with organized street grid layouts based on the classical model of the ancient Chinese capital city of Chang'an (Xi'an). Kyoto being a famous city and the all important capital of Japan, maps of Kyoto from this period usually did not include an official title. The title was later added on the cover by bibliographers. The map includes the era when it was published. This map includes two dates, most likely referring to the earlier edition printed in Tenpo 2 or 1831 and this particular edition is printed in Keio 4 or 1868. Expert conservation with entire map lined with archival paper for ease of folding.Takahara Kobei has published maps depicting the early modern Kyoto since 1812.

        Alpenlandschaft mit Gewässer 1868.

      1868 1868 - Aquarell über Bleistift, auf bräunlichem Velin, recht unten signiert und datiert „J. Höger. 2. April 1860. 18,9:15,9 cm. Insgesamt leicht vergilbt und etwas fleckig. Ein fein abgestimmtes Kolorit und eine sorgfältige zeichnerische Sicherheit zeichnen dieses Aquarell aus. Nachdem der österreichische Landschaftsmaler Höger eine Ausbildung zum Radierer und Lithographen absolvierte hatte, studierte er an der Wiener Akademie bei J. Mössmer (1780-1945) und J. Rebell (1787-1828). Impulse nahm er vor allem von J.C. Erhard (1795-1822) und J.A. Klein /1792-1975) auf. Nach seiner Ausbildung schloß er sich J. Gauermann (1773-1843), dessen Tochter er heiratete, und dessen Söhnen Carl (1804-1829) und Friedrich (1807-1862) an. Mit Carl unternahm er Studienausflüge in die Alpen, mit Friedrich begleitete er 1837 zusammen mit Th. Ender Erzherzog Johann nach Südrussland und in den Orient, und unternahm 1838 eine Reise nach Venedig. 1849-1851 war er Professor an der Elementarschule der Wiener Akademie. Seine Werke besitzen das Nationalmuseum Nürnberg, das Museum Georg Schäfer Schweinfurt, das Lichtensteinmuseum Wien und das Niederösterreichische Landesmuseum St. Pölten. Charakteristisch für Höger war das reine Aquarell, in dem Lichtakzente durch Aussparung der Fläche und nicht durch Deckweißhöhung bewirkt wurden, wie auch das vorliegende Blatt zeigt.

The variation of animals and plants under domestication. 2 vols. viii, 411 plus 32-page publisher?s catalogue; viii, 486, [2, adverts.]pp. Text illustrations. London: John Murray, 1868. 222 x 142 mm. Original green cloth, gilt-lettered spines, bit of paper residue on corner of Vol. I front cover, corner of Vol. II front cover a bit creased. Occasional minor foxing but very good First Edition, second issue. Darwin?s longest work, representing the first two chapters of the projected ?big book? on the origin of species of which the Origin was an abstract; this was the only section of the ?big book? published during Darwin?s lifetime. Along with a detailed discussion of the facts of artificial selection, the work contains Darwin?s hypothesis of pangenesis, in which he tried to provide explanations of hereditary resemblance, inheritance of acquired characteristics, atavism, and regeneration; the theory served as ?a point of departure for particulate theories in the later nineteenth century? (Dictionary of Scientific Biography). The first issue of Variation has four lines of errata in the first volume and seven lines in the second. The second issue is distinguished by the single line of errata in Vol. i, p. vi; and by the two-line imprint shown on nearly all of the binding spines. Freeman 878. Norman 597.

        FUKUJU SOH: THE ADONIS PLANT. [An Erotic Color Illustrated Woodblock Printed Boo

      [Japan n.d. ca 1868]. Gold brocade green cloth covers, acco-. rdion folded, all edge silver gilt, album size 17 x 25 cm.,. contains 12 double page prints opening to 34 x 25 cm. Oban. size, plus an introductory illustrated page. STUNNING !. A MOST STUNNING HOKUSAI EROTIC COLOR-BOOK This is a most famous book executed by one of Japan's most famous painters and woodblock print artist, Hokusai [1760- 1849], who was commonly known as the "Mad Man on Painting." The original was printed in the late 1810's it was unsigned, several variant editions are known, most copies were lost or now unaccounted for. It is part of Hokusai's erotic tri- logy. This posthumous edition has been meticulously carved and printed with the utmost care and registry. The book used some twenty different colors, each color printed by a diffe- rent wood-block. An interesting proof of age, is found on page [six], the rape scene. The girl's red under-Kimono was printed from a color made from finely ground iron. The red has now turned to an iron-red patina with a dark purple hue. This common color was used at the beginning of the Meiji period [1868-1912] for most solid reds. Humidity content determines the amount of time it takes to give this patina, on the average, about 100-135 years for this reaction to change the properties of the iron, forcing it to oxidize and change into and achieve this marvelous color and affect [see #6 scan]. While the book has a proper title slip, it was intentionally left blank. The over all condition of the book is quite good with very minor reservations. A small amount of foxing, more on some, less on other prints, some are even approaching fine. On page #11, the print is about 5 mm. shorter at the bottom, but this does NOT affect the overall value of the image as it is insignificant. A small, faint amount of transfer from the black is evident with close scrutiny. Overall the work is quite lovely, and the viewer is soon distracted to the subject of the images rather than the minor flaws. A truly magnificent and unusual example of early Meiji polychrom printing. Most of the Shun Pon [erotic books] of this period show small images, drawn from a distance, with room decorations, food, bedding, flow- ing robes, furniture and outside scenery. This by stark con- trast has directed the viewer to the real point of Shun Pon [literally Spring Book Pictures...after all, spring in Asia means a new beginning and the opening of a New Year...return of nature from a winter's sleep, what better things to think of and do for a good New Year start if not sex !] is to sti- mulate and enhance the act of making love. The book begins sans title page nor artist's name recognition. Many books of this subject were clearly executed by some of the most famous artists of the period. It was a quick source of cash for starving artists. The work starts out with a double-page showing sliding Fusuma doors, an invitation to voyeurism. The doors are subtly decorated giving no clue to the true nature of the contents, useful for coercing young virgins to have a look...also the reason for no title slip. Each of the subsequent 12 double pages are devoted to the real subj- ect of this book. The joy, art and pleasure of love-making. From the beginning of recorded time the Japanese were not a prudish people. In fact, they held strong beliefs in and worship of inanimate sexual objects such as trees, rocks and other things that showed a natural resemblance to the genitalia. These objects were collected & placed in shrines. Later, some were carved from wood and stone and placed in special "fertility shrines" in Japan. Barren women often visited these shrines offering prayers to the Gods for fert- ility and evoked charms. Stories passed down over the cent- centuries, that some of the keepers of these fertility shri- nes, or their priests were willing "assistants" of these "Gods" & gladly inseminated such vulnerable women. The Jap- anese had an affinity with the natural expression of passion passion and lust. Rape of women alone along a pathway, or in their own room was not uncommon. While some may truly object others feigned objection while in ecstasy [see page #6]. The book therefore beings when the first page is turned to page number one. * * Page one shows a very young woman. She has mounted an un- seen suitor, while she sits upon his gigantic penis, her eyes are closed in the throes of ecstasy, her lips are red with excitement and a very pale but obvious pink flush enve- lops her face. On the floor is the usual package of Chirishi or toilet paper used to wipe the aftermath. The male's organ is huge and the veins are blue and popping, her very excited vulva takes on the color of deep red and faint purple, disp- laying the maximum color of excitement. While fully clothed, her Kimono is open just enough to accomplish the act of love. To the Japanese partially clothed women with their genitals exposed was more erotic than a full nude...after all they did mixed public bathing for centuries. * * Page two shows a couple, she is almost nude, with just her red under Kimono draped over her stomach, while he exposes his organ as he enters her from the "X" angle, he cradles, her from behind while holding her left breast. She pulls him from behind the neck to be close enough to share a tongue kiss, rarely shown in Japanese prints. He inserts his tongue into her willing mouth, as she holds his cheek fast. Her long and flowing hair is still tied with a black ribbon at the bottom suggesting that she is some kind of royal person. She also shows a pink flush to her mouth and vaginal lips. * *Page three shows newlyweds. The woman still wears the trad- itional head gear of a bride. She holds a package of Chiri- shi in her lips ready for the flood of love juices that are already flowing out. The man enters her from the top, while she willingly spreads her legs wide open. * * Page four shows the woman on top in a contortion, reveal- ing the organs involved in love-making. * *Page five shows the influence from an earlier Utamaro work a classic. The woman is on the bottom, pulling the covers over her lover's bare back-side, while they are making love in the winter. Her wooden platform pillow is ready as the are hidden from view by a small folding screen to keep out the cool draft. Her vermilion under Kimono is tangled with her outer Kimono. * *Page six shows a ruffian raping a young girl. He is likely a common coolie, all he wears is a "Fundoshi" or loin cloth which was easily moved to reveal his huge and erect penis. He has tumbled this innocent girl by pulling her foot from under her; then with his other hand, inserts his organ into her. She is pushing his cheek away, and attempting to pull his hand off her foot. What is ironical is that her face is flushed pink, and her face shows no frown of rejection, but her eyes are almost closed as she secretly anticipates the oncoming pleasure. For sure, she must resist being innocent, young, coquettish and demure in an attempt to save face. It is important to note at this time, that there exists a most similar print by Utamaro showing this very scene. Surely Hokusai was so impressed, that as a tribute to Utamaro he utilized this stunning image in his own work, the old adage "Copying is the greatest compliment." See more below re: #6. * *Page seven shows an unabashed nude couple enjoying a fully adult pleasure of making love without any restraints. In fact this must the a second or third time as the amount of expended Chirishi has been thrown about after the last joys of love-making pleasure. It is known in Japan, that after the first round of love-making if the couple can clean up the love juices promptly enough, a new erection can be achi- eved, and the drying of the vagina will give the next round of love-making a new and more pleasurable sensation. In this view the man enters from the rear while holding her fast,his right foot is set for maximum traction ! * *Page eight shows another couple engaged, the woman on top but with her back side facing him. Vis-a-vis each other to observe each other thus increasing the erotic passion. A tiny bit of silver color has accented her Kimono, highly un- usual in any woodblock print. Of note, her toes are curled curled down in a fit of ecstasy. * *Page nine shows one of the most fascinating of all prints in this series. In the traditional sixty-nine position, he has his tongue in her very excited and swollen purple-red vulva. She tries with difficulty to contain his very large penis, also with a dark pink-purple flush, as she curled her toes in painful ecstasy, her expression shows her eyebrows in a frown, as she enjoys the agony and ecstasy of this won- derful pleasure. * *Page ten shows a mature couple nude, she holds the tie-died head band in her mount, to silence her cries of joy, while she embraces her lover's neck. The spectacular view of the genitals fully engaged is stunning. The penis has its veins popping out, while the lips of her vulva are flushed bright red, the love juices flowing out. Her breasts are pointed downward, revealing that she has given birth previously. Her her toes are curled in a passionate dream of pleasure. The pair both display a pink flush to their faces with very bright red lips. It is not common to see this in men. * *Page eleven shows a couple preparing to make love. The man who is on top displays a very large and erect penis, while he sucks on her upturned breast; she is being manipulated to move her left leg up so he can then enter her open and wait- ing vulva. She clutches a handful of Chirishi in preparation for the flood. Her eyebrows are shaved, but a faint pink flush just above her eyes has emerged. * *Page twelve shows a most unusual scene in the world of Haru Bon. While lesbianism is not unusual, openly depicting girls at such play are. This shows two ordinary nude women, likely being bored or abandoned by their male suitors, have taken to the mutual pleasure of dildo play. One wears a huge and most black penis tied about her waist. The other reveals her open and moist vagina, clutches the penis while holding a few Chirishi sheets. The other opens a tiny container with some sort of stimulating potion. This will either be applied to the dildo or her partner's vagina. It seems clear, the two girls have already shared this joy before and could be that the girl grasping the penis has already applied it to her partner,and is now awaiting her turn to be "penetrated." * Books of this subject, quality, nature and rarity are truly most difficult to acquire on the open market. Superbly col- ored in pastels, prior to the very garish and bright advent and use of aniline dyes imported from Europe. Because Hoku- sai had lived during the life-time of Utamaro [1754-1806] he was influencd by this great master. The most vivid example of this invluence is found in number six [above], the rape scene. The original inspiration for this print was done by Utamaro in his most celebrated erotic album: UTA MAKURA: PILLOW OF SONG, dated 1788..."Utamaro's masterpieces...most impressive ...series of twelve prints ...this is one of the most dramatic scenes: a plebeian maiden being attacked by a middle-aged laborer and putting up stiff resistance" See R. Lane: IMAGES OF THE FLOATING WORLD, page 140, plate 140 for a most similar example. The original Utamaro shows the exact same action, with nearly identical composition; the man sup- resses the girl by holding her left leg, while she pushes his cheek away with her right hand...clearly Hokusai was so impressed with this superb composition and subject that he utilized it in his own masterpiece. Note how even the man's "Fundoshi" [loin cloth] is in the exact format, draped over his stiff penis. This is no coincidence ! This series and a few similar prints illustrated also in T. Evans: SHUNGA: The Art of Love in Japan, page 249 for the text; illustrations 6.83, 6.85 and 6.86; 6.88 is an exact match for our number 9 above. A stunning and most fantastic piece of color erotica by Japan's master painter.

        Tenders for Survey in Northern Territory

      Adelaide, Government Printer, 1868 - Foolscap folio, 8 pages plus copies of two enclosures with the tender forms: a folding plan showing the proposed system of surveying sections (approximately 260 x 315 mm) and a large folding colour map, 'Sketch Map of the North Territory Country in the vicinity of Adam Bay, constructed by J.W.O. Bennett, Draughtsman, from data and instructions furnished by the Hon. B.T. Finniss, L.Col. V.M.F., Govt. Resident Northern Territory. Showing approximately the tracks of the various explorers of the N.T. and the locality of the gold producing district discovered by Mr F.H. Litchfield in September 1865' (515 x 595 mm). Modern cloth with the title in gilt on the front cover; light marginal foxing to the text and folding plan, with light waterstains to the leading edge of the last leaf; the folding map is foxed (confined mainly to the wide unprinted margins and blank areas of the printed surface), and there are light waterstains along portions of the top and leading edges; notwithstanding, a very good copy of a very rare item. South Australian Parliamentary Paper Number 100 of 1868-69. It contains full details of the nine tenders for the survey of 420,000 acres of land in the Northern Territory, together with a report on them by George Goyder, the Surveyor-General. He saw fit to consider seriously only one of the tenders, and his concluding remarks suggest the ultimate course of action: 'it only remains to be considered whether an efficient party, organized and equipped by the Government, and the additional information gained thereby, would not be infinitely preferable to the bare local description of the country actually operated on by the contractors'. The very detailed map may be seen as a monument to Bennett, who returned with Goyder's party, only to meet his death by spearing on 29 May 1869. Offered together with a copy of the Proceedings of the Royal Geographical Society of Australasia, South Australian Branch, Volume 79, 1978, containing a relevant article by Michael Williams: 'George Woodroofe Goyder - a Practical Geographer' (22 pages with 3 maps and 3 plates). Also included is a signed copy of the recent biography of Goyder by Janis Sheldrick: 'Nature's Line. George Goyder. Surveyor, Environmentalist, Visionary' (Wakefield Press, 2013; octavo, xiv, 458 pages plus 28 colour illustrations and endpaper maps; papered boards with the dustwrapper).

        Courrier de Vaugelas (le). Journal bi-mensuel consacré à la propagation de la langue française. Questions grammaticales questions philologiques.

      1868-1887, Paris 1868 - Du numéro 1 (première année, 1er. octobre 1868) au numéro 20 et dernier (dixième année, 15 juin 1881), 2 vol. in-4, demi-toile verte. Collection complète. Rédacteur en chef : Ema Martin. Revue consacrée à la philologie et à la grammaire. « Le Courrier de Vaugelas, un des périodiques linguistiques du 19e siècle, est consacré à la propagation universelle de la langue française et a pour unique rédacteur E. Martin. Les thèmes étudiés sont abordés sous forme de questions-réponses avec des questions grammaticales et des questions philologiques. L'A. s'intéresse à cette publication (particulièrement entre 1868 et 1881) car elle s'inscrit dans une époque charnière tant pour les études linguistiques que pour la pratique pédagogique. Pour connaître la complexité et la diversité des forces idéologiques et politiques qui pèsent sur le Courrier ainsi que ses pratiques, l'A. étudie les jugements d'acceptabilité explicites et implicites qui touchent également indirectement les problèmes de la norme. Il relève certaines prises de position qui sembleraient marquer une assez grande distance par rapport à l'ensemble de la doxa ». Peu avant le décès du fondateur-rédacteur (1882), la publication fut interrompue de juin 1881 à 1886 ; reprise en 1887, la revue disparut définitivement le 20 décembre 1887. Table générale des matières jointe. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        High Water in the Mississippi

      New York: Currier & Ives, 1868. Hand-coloured lithograph by James Merrit Ives after Fanny Palmer. A poignant image, demonstrating the triumph of the human spirit. In the foreground, uprooted trees bob in the current, using a roof as a raft two men pole themselves and nine others to safety, one of their companions holds tight to reins of a mule swimming beside the roof, whilst two others rescue furniture and a barrel. In the mid-ground: a large white-painted house with second-floor balconies front and back, and a smaller cook-house off to the right side. Two men in a row boat approach the back of the house, a lady stands on the balcony speaking to the men; on the widow's walk on the roof a man and a woman stand: the man waves a handkerchief to the twin-stack riverboat. The riverboat, "Stonewall Jackson" is travelling at speed: the near-side paddle creates a substantial wake, the flags fly in the stiff breeze and the smoke from the stacks steams backwards: passengers line the rails attracted by the human drama they are passing. The overall impression is of a crisis that is being survived and dealt with by man's ingenuity, whilst life continues. Conningham 2819; Gale 3057.
