Provenance: From the library of Sir John Franklin (1786-1847), FRGS, British Royal Naval Officer, Arctic Explorer, and Governor of Tasmania (1836-1843); gifted to Henry Elliot, Franklin's aide-de-camp; the bookplate of the University of Michigan on the front paste-down of each volume and their ink library stamps on the recto of the first blank, and the foot of the dedication leaf in volume I and the foot of the contents leaf in all other volumes; the bookplate of Albert May Todd (1850-1931) known as "the peppermint king" on the front paste-down of each volume; George M. Pflaumer, American bibliophile, his sale Sotheby's New York, June 3, 1997, lot 92. First editions. ORIGINAL SUBSCRIBER SIR JOHN FRANKLIN'S COPY. Gould collected the material for his magnum opus "The Birds of Australia" on journeys through Australia in 1838-1840: "I was naturally desirous of turning my attention to the Ornithology of some other region; and a variety of opportune and concurring circumstances induced me to select that of Australia, the birds of which, although invested with the highest degree of interest, had been almost entirely neglected In the absence, then, of any general work on the Birds of Australia, the field was comparatively a new one, and of no ordinary degree of interest, from the circumstance of its being one of the finest possessions of the British Crown, and from its natural productions being as remarkable for the anomalous nature of their forms, as for their beauty, and the singularity of their habits." (Gould "Preface" to his "introduction to the Birds of Australia"). Arguably John Gould's largest and most important work, in part due to the time Gould spent in the field making his own observations: the text that accompanies the illustrations is by far the most accurate and detailed of all his works. In September 1838, the author and his artist wife, Elizabeth, arrived in Australia and spent the following eighteen months exploring Tasmania and the adjacent islands, South Australia, and new South Wales. Upon the discovery that she was pregnant, Elizabeth Gould resolved to remain in Tasmania while her husband set about discovering the birds of Australia's interior. She was to stay with the Governor of Van Diemen's land (Tasmania), John Franklin, during this time and became fast friends with the Governor's wife Jane, who had a reputation among the locals for being an unusually forthright and intrepid individual. She and her husband went on frequent expeditions by themselves, often 'roughing it', and on one occasion managed to get themselves lost. She helped to found the local University, Museum and Botanical Gardens. It is therefore not surprising that Captain Franklin should become a subscriber to the "Birds of Australia". With an AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED BY HENRY ELLIOT, FRANKLIN'S AIDE-DE-CAMP, dated April 1877, inserted in the first volume: "This copy of Gould's Birds of Australia belonged to Sir John Franklin to whom I was aide de camp, and in whose house, while Governor of Tasmania, Gould lived many months while making his collection. I had myself made a collection of the Birds of Tasmania, and gave many of the specimens to Gould. After the death of Sir J. Franklin's widow in 1876 this copy of the work was given to me by his niece . . ." Gould acknowledges the assistance of both Elliot and Franklin in his "Preface" to "The Birds of Australia". AN EXCEPTIONALLY FINE SET WITH A DISTINGUISHED PROVENANCE. Anker 174, 179; "Fine Bird Books" p. 78; Nissen 370; Sauer 9, 18; Zimmer pp. 225-259. Catalogued by Kate Hunter

        A Visitor To Early Arizona Territory Describes The Landmarks ("Ruins Of Ancient Buildings...And In Some Places Chapels"), Agriculture ("The Finest Part Of The Country I Have Seen So Far For Agricultural Purposes"), And The Prolific Vulture Gold Mine ("I Should Like To Own It For About A Year")

      AL. 4pgs. March 2, 1869. Fort Whipple, Arizona Territory. A lengthy-but-incomplete letter sent from Arizona Territory. Writing to parents back home, the author describes in detail the landscape, agriculture, and mining in the region. He mentions key rivers, architectural monuments, history, and gold mines. Arizona Territory was established in 1863, with Fort Whipple as its first capital, and became a state in 1913: "My Dear Father & Mother, We left Camp McDowell on the 19th of last month, and made about thirty miles to the settlements on the Salt River: this is the finest part of the country I have seen so far for agricultural purposes; it would do Shoddy good to see the immense stretches of country, as level as a floor and without a stone; the ploughing is generally done very superficially, all it requires being simply to put the seed in and it will come up. The entire country is just as fertile as these river bottoms, but the great drawback is the scarcity of water; even on these river bottoms nothing would grow, if they did not make irrigating ditches (aquafers the Mexicans call them) all over the land and plow their crops in the dry season. Manure is never need in the country, the land is so productive that it will grow anything without any stimulant of any kind. The only markets they have are the military posts, so they raise grain principally for forage: barley is the grain most used by the government for feed for the horses: in fact it is far better than corn and the horses do more work on it. The hay grows wild and all it requires is cutting; nearly every post having mowing machines and plenty of men; they have abundance of hay for all purposes. All through the settlements we found, and in fact for miles, we found pieces of pottery, scattered along the ground, supposed to be the work of the Aztec under the Jesuits. I find in the history of Arizona that all these fertile valley are supposed to have been settled at least a century ago, and that civilization flourished much more so than at present, under the rule of the priests. Everything goes to show that such was the case, as we find ruins of ancient building, pottery, old canals for irrigation, and in some places their chapels. In the valley of the Santa Cruz nine miles south of Tucson is the old Cathedral of San Xavier del Bac as fine an old ruin as you could wish to see; in fact it is hardly a ruin, but is in a fine state of preservation, having the roof entire and most of the decoration; some of the statuary is really good and would not disgrace some of the public buildings in the States. This cathedral is supposed to be some two hundred years old. I think there is little doubt that what this country has been settled at one time, and its mines worked, but it has keen land waste by the depredations of the Indians. Our next days march was thirty miles to mud tanks, covering two (so called) rivers on the route; these rivers are dry half the time, in fact are only rivers during the rainy season. One of them we found dry and the other with considerable water in it, although our train, that was about an hour behind us, found no water whatever it having sunk in the sand. Next day we travelled thirty mules to Wickenburg a mining town and the only self-supporting town in Arizona; I visited the Vulture mine and also the mill, and was very much entertained in so doing; the gold is found there almost in the quartz, and varies in value (that is the rock) from thirty to three hundred dollars per ton. The mill in what is called a twenty stamp mill; the stamps being on the same principal as a trip hammer. The rock is first fed into a machine like a picker, that crushes it somewhat; from this it passes through the stamps, they crushing it to a fine powder: water is continuously pouring on these stamps, washing the crushed powder down a sluice-way to the pans, this sluice-way is lined with quick-silver, and the silver retains nearly all the gold: the pans are also lined with mercury, and what gold escapes is caught there. After it is thrown out of the pans it is called tailings and these again are called to an account, and go through much the same process, until they have taken every particle of gold. The mill I mine are owned by four men, (one of them from Windsor Locks, Conn.) and they make a very good thing out of it; I believe it pays nine hundred dollars in gold per day, after all expenses are taken out. I should like to own it for about a year. The day of our arrival at Wickenburg was the 22d Washingtons birthday, the citizens gave a ball to which we were invited, and we had a very nice time, although the company I must say was decidedly mixed. Just before we arrived [letter ends here]." The Vulture Mine was a highly-successful gold mine from 1863 through the mid-twentieth century; it is now a ghost town. The nearby town of Wickenburg was established around the same time and was named for Vulture Mine's founder Henry Wickenburg. Wickenburg - still in existence but sparsely populated - had a history of violent clashes between miners and the native populace in the nineteenth century. The church the author speaks so highly of, San Xavier del Bac, was a Catholic church near Tucson that was built by Spanish Jesuit missionaries in the eighteenth century.

        Die kaiserl. königl. Oesterreichische Armee nach der neuesten Adjustirung 1869.

      Vienne, P. Kaeser, s.d., (1869), - in-4, titre en caractères latins et 45 planches lithographiées et coloriées, le tout contrecollé sur du carton souple monté sur onglets, demi-chagrin maroquiné cerise, dos à nerfs, double filet à froid sur les plats (rel. de la fin du XIXe s.). Dos uniformément insolé, mais bon exemplaire. Notre album résulte d'un remaniement de collectionneur : le titre a été reproduit photomécaniquement et remonté sur carton, entouré de filets noirs et protégé par un film plastique semi-rigide ; quant aux vignettes, qui sont originellement sont de format in-16 et mesurent 14,5 x 11 cm, elles ont également été contrecollées sur des planches de format in-4. La collation est au demeurant conforme à celle donnée par De Ridder, en-dehors de l'ordre des vignettes, qui n'est pas le même. Il s'agit d'une importante suite puisqu'elle représente les costumes de l'armée austro-hongroise juste après les modifications d'uniformes apportées à la suite de la malheureuse guerre austro-prussienne de 1866, et la suppression de la tunique blanche des officiers. De Ridder, 76. Absent de Colas. Exemplaire de la bibliothèque du baron de Marbot, avec vignette ex-libris contrecollée sur les premières gardes. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Del mal uso che si fa delle medie nelle scienze fisiche e sociali: Memoria.

      Modena: Tipografia dell' Erede Soliani, 1869 - Quarto. Original plain buff wrappers. Old repair to backstrip, slight spotting to fore margins of endleaves and a single wormhole thoughout, touching one letter. An excellent copy. First edition. Inscribed by the author on the title page: "All'egregio sig. Prof. Gilberto Gavi[?]". Father of the famous economist and sociologist Vilfredo Pareto, Raffaele Pareto (1812–1882) was a prominent civil engineer whose career began in France where he had sought exile following his involvement with Giuseppe Mazzini's movement for Italian unification in the early 1830s. When Pareto returned to Italy in the 1850s he pursued his brilliant engineering and administrative career, culminating as central inspector of drainage and irrigation. Pareto's published work was mainly concerned with the technical aspect of engineering, this essay is one of a few of a more theoretical nature. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        The Substitution of Similars, The True Principle of Reasoning, Derived from a Modification of Aristotle's Dictum

      London: Macmillan and Co,, 1869. Octavo. Original blue cloth, spine lettered in gilt, boards ruled in blind, sprinkled edges. Diagram frontispiece (included in pagination) of the logical abacus; 32-page Macmillan catalogue dated February 1875 at rear. Spine worn at extremities, corners lightly rubbed, inner hinges cracked but firm. Ownership labels of the Library of the Meadville Theological School dated 1881 to front pastedown, library stamps and perforated stamp to title page and pages 43-44, shelf mark to gutter of leaf of preface and to spine, lending ticket and return date sheet to rear endpapers; a sound copy. First edition of the economist, logician, and philosopher's most popular and accessible work. "At the end of 1866 Jevons had begun 'thinking about logic again seriously' and considered grafting some developments on to the modified version of Boole's system that he had published in 1863. In the next two months the idea that 'the great and universal principle of all reasoning' was the substitution of similars became central to his thinking. With this in mind he decided to 'produce a work which will not only embody a new and luminous system but will be readable and read by many' (Papers, 1.209–10)... in 1869 he published The Substitution of Similars, a short work presenting the essence of his system of logic as he now saw it 'to the judgement of those interested in logical science'" (ODNB).

Accuratissima editio novis missis ex indulto apostolico concessis aucta; [together with:] Missae propriae ecclesiae metropolitanae turnonensis. 2 works in 1 volume, folio (305 x 245 mm). Contemporary green morocco, raised bands to spine, compartments ornately decorated in gilt with floral motifs, single rule border and inner border of interlaced gilt strapwork to covers, gilt cross to front cover, gilt monogram to rear cover, gilt edge roll, floral gilt roll to turn-ins, white moiré silk endpapers, 8 red silk tabs, 5 silk page markers, edges gilt. Full-page engraving depicting the Crucifixion, text in 2 columns, musical score in the text. Covers scuffed, extremities a little rubbed, otherwise an excellent copy. A handsomely-bound 19th-century Roman Missal, printed in Tours. It is bound with a copy of the Missal specific to the archdiocese of Tours, which was produced under the supervision of Charles Théodore Colet (1806–1883), who became Archbishop of Tours in 1874. Three tipped-in pages from a 1936 Roman Missal, also printed in Tours, indicate that this copy was revised in the 1930s to reflect a number of revisions to the liturgical calendar that had occurred. The first, found between sigs. 37iii and iv, provides the revised liturgical text for the feast of the Immaculate Conception 8 December. The second page, placed between sigs. 40ii and iii, commemorates 31 January as the feast day of St John Bosco in place of St Peter Nolasco, whose feast day was moved to 28 January following Bosco's canonisation in 1934. Similarly a page between sigs. 43i and ii commemorates the feast day of St Bernadette of Loudes, who was canonised in 1933, as 16 April. A tipped-in handwritten prayer between sigs. 25iv and 26i similarly indicates the practical use of this text as a devotional object.

Born in Bell Busk, near Gargrave, Yorkshire, Slingsby first visited Norway in 1872 and fell in love with the country. He has been called the discoverer of the Norwegian mountains, and the father of Norwegian mountaineering (insofar as he seems to be the first who actively pursued climbing in Norway and was the first person on several mountains). Together with Norway's early skilled mountain climber Kristian Bing (1862-1935), he is considered to have been a pioneer explorer of Jostedalsbreen, the largest glacier in continental Europe. Slingsby is perhaps most famous for being the first on „Storen", or Store Skagastølstind (2405 m) in 1876, the third highest mountain in Norway. It was considered impossible to climb then, but Slingsby defied popular notion and climbed the mountain, for the last part alone. His crossing of the 1,550-meter-high (5,800 ft) Keiser Pass, Norway, on skis in 1880 also helped inspire the sport of ski mountaineering. He also spoke and wrote strongly about several other mountains for example Slogen. His classic book on climbing in Norway, Norway: the Northern Playground, was first published in 1904 and republished in 1941. A new edition was released in 2003. The latest edition was published in March 2014. Slingsby was an honorary member of Norsk Tindeklub and of the Norwegian Trekking Association. He had five children; the youngest, Eleanor Winthrop Young, was herself a climber and a co-founder of the Pinnacle Club, a women's climbing association. Cecil died on August 23, 1929 in a nursing home at Hurstpierpoint, in East Sussex. He is buried in the churchyard at Carleton-in-Craven. (Wikipedia)

      John Murray. Hardcover. London, 1869. 8vo, full polished red calf. Complete in twelve volumes. A new edition. Beautifully bound in full polished calf by an unidentified contemporary bindery, spines in six compartments with morocco title labels and elaborate gilt inlays.

A few stray scuffs to spines at heads and heels. Complete with portrait and all maps and charts. A very nice set in its second edition, in excellent condition overall. "Although as biased as Macaulay's History of England, and less scholarly than Mommsen's Roman History, Grote's History of Greece can be bracketed with these two works. Like them, it was received with universal acclimation. (It) shaped the European conception of the subject matter throughout the nineteenth century , and still merits respect as a monument of industrious Victorian scholarship." - Printing and the Mind of Man, for the 1846 first edition. .

        Ophthalmoskopischer Hand-Atlas.

      Wien, K. K. Hof- und Staatsdeuckerei, 1869.. Crown quarto. (265 x 190 mm). Pp. xviii, 236, (2) publisher's catalogue. Plus 29 colour lithographed plates with a total of 128 figures. Hardcover, bound in contemporary full cloth, discoloured, spine gilt, corner-tips and spine-ends trifle rubbed, inner hinges tender, stamp chemically effaced from title-page by expert hand, two plates with short tear at fore-margin slightly touching image, discreetly closed by expert hand and are practically invisible. In a very good condition, very clean interior and plates. ~ First edition. Exeedingly scarce. Eduard Jaeger Ritter von Jaxtthal (1818-1884). Jaeger's atlas greatly advanced ophthalmoscopy, and was unsurpassed for many years. The chromolithographed plates were based on his remarkable fundus paintings, which were accomplished in sittings which might run to over one hundred hours per painting. The original paintings are now housed at the University of Pennsylvania. Jaeger's atlas is a noted example of how 19th Century ophthalmology embraced new printing technologies and ingenious uses of the book, enabling students far and wide to benefit from the famous ophthalmologist's research. A second edition appeared in 1890. It was then translated into English as "Jaeger's Atlas of Diseases of the Ocular Fundus".
