        Autograph Letter Signed, to Mr. Mash (?)

      26 November, Sydney 1871 - Single leaf, small octavo, conjugate leaf removed but the letter evidently complete, simple red device to head of recto, pin-holes, very good. A nice note from Anthony Trollope, politely refusing an invitation to whist during his visit to Sydney in 1871. It is rare to see a letter from Trollope's Australian stay on the market, although he was a prolific correspondent. Together with his wife Frances, Trollope sailed for the antipodes in 1871 to visit their son Frederick, who had settled on a sheep station near Grenfell. The novelist evidently enjoyed the time he spent in the colonies, and travelled extensively. He wrote a great deal during his year-long visit, most famously his Australia and New Zealand (1873), but also drew directly on his experiences for two novels, Harry Heathcote of Gangoil (1874) and John Caldigate (1879). The note reads: 'My wife has made an engagement for me on Monday evening (much less to my taste than your offer) which will preclude me from joining your whist table tomorrow. I did not answer your note sooner, knowing that it would make no difference in your engagements, and not being quite sure as to what I might be bound to do. Very faithfully yours Anthony Trollope.' As this implies, whist was a passion of Trollope's, and he deeply felt the lack of available players during his Australian tour. A note printed in his Australia and New Zealand attests to what anguish the refusal must have cost him: 'I did endeavour to institute a whist table, but I found that my friends, who were wonderfully good in regard to the age and points of a sheep, and who could tell to the fraction of a penny what the wool of each was worth by the pound, could never be got to remember the highest card of the suit. I should not have minded that,' continued Trollope, 'had they not so manifestly despised me for regarding such knowledge as important.' Not in The Letters (ed. N. John Hall).

        A Cuvierian principle in palaeontology tested by evidences of an extinct leonine marsupial (Thylacoleo carnifex)

      London: Taylor & Francis, 1871. <p>Owen, Richard (1804-92). A Cuvierian principle in palaeontology tested by evidences of an extinct leonine marsupial (Thylacoleo carnifex). Offprint from Philosophical Transactions 161 (1871). [2], 213-266pp. 4 lithographed plates. 275 x 211 mm. Disbound. Very good copy. Inscribed by Owen on the title: &#147;Prof. Rupert Jones NGS with the author&#146;s best regards.&#148; </p><p>First Edition, Offprint Issue. Thylacoleo carnifex, or the &#147;marsupial lion,&#148; was a carnivorous marsupial that lived in Australia between 2 million and 46 thousand years ago; it was first described in 1859 by Owen in his &#147;On the fossil mammals of Australia, part I&#148; (Phil. Trans. 149: 309-322). Owen classified the extinct animal as a carnivore based on the structure of its lower jaw, but other naturalists, including William Flower and Hugh Falconer, disagreed, and &#147;the issue of the carnivorousness of Thylacoleo carnifex became one of the bitterest paleontological controversies of the 1860s. Falconer denounced Owen&#146;s line of reasoning as &#145;facile&#146; and Owen&#146;s Darwinian foes, in particular the zoologist W. H. Flower, at the time conservator of the Hunterian Museum, joined in the highly personal attack . . . Owen yielded nothing, turning the controversy into a test case of Cuvierian functionalism and issuing a separate booklet on the controversy: A Cuvierian Principle in Palaeontology, Tested by Evidences of an Extinct Leonine Marsupial (Thylacoleo carnifex)&#148; (Rupke, pp. 86-87). It appears that this &#147;separate booklet&#148; is in fact the offprint of the fourth part of Owen&#146;s &#147;On the fossil mammals of Australia&#148; (Phil. Trans. 161 [1875]: 213-266), as this is the title that appears on the leaf following the offprint title-page, and the pagination of the separate offprint is identical to that of the article in the Philosophical Transactions. </p><p>Owen presented this copy to British paleontologist Thomas Rupert Jones (1811&#150;1911), the editor of Lartet and Christy&#146;s Reliquiae Aquitanicae (1875), which recorded the discovery of Cro-Magnon man. Rupke, Richard Owen, Victorian Naturalist, pp. 85-87.</p>

        Stunden der Andacht Ein Gebet und Erbauungsbuch fur Israel Frauen und Jungfrauen

      Prague - Wolf Baicheles, 1871. Prague - Wolf Baicheles, 1871 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A scarce copy of thissingular Jewish prayer book in an interesting velvet binding, hand-embroidered with metal thread. Eighth edition. Subtitled: A Book of Prayer and Moral Uplift for Jewish Women and Girls, for use in personal and domestic prayer, as well as for all occasions in womens lives. In German. Although her prayer book for women, Stunden der Andacht (Hours of Devotion), first published in 1855, remained popular and widely-used until the middle of the twentieth century, little is known about its author, Fanny Neuda. Born in Eibenschitz, Moravia on March 6, 1819, Neuda was a member of a rabbinic family. This work, Stunden der Andacht(Prague, 1855) was written as &#39;a monument of living memories after her husband&#39;s death. A best-seller that ran into twenty-eight editions, it soon became the standard womens prayer book of its time. This is all the more remarkable because at the time of its publication in 1855 there already existed numerous examples of this form of literature, which had first appeared on the market at the beginning of the century. But in contrast to the earlier works, which were mainly composed by men, Fanny Neudas Stunden der Andacht was probably the first prayer book for Jewish women in the nineteenth century written by a woman. The sale record indicates the fulfillment of Fanny Neudas hope that her prayer texts, the fruits of a womans heart, would find an echo in the hearts of women. Apart from being composed in a particularly fervent and intimate style of prayer, the texts are characterized by a conservative theology and a middle-class morality typical of the time. Thus Fanny Neuda recommends that in bringing up Jewish girls the moral qualities of the German classics should be applied, as well as the deliberate encouragement of innate female religiosity; they should strive for ennoblement of the heart, enhancement and strengthening of religious feeling. Encouraged by her success, Fanny Neuda pursued her activities as an author, publishing stories that present the world and lives of Jewish women, always with a similar educational message of edification. She died in Merano, in the Italian Alps, on April 16, 1894. (jwa. org)Condition: In a velvet hand-embroidered binding. Externally attractive although a trifle rubbed, wear to head and tail of spine. The hinges have been reinforced. Internally, the majority of the textblock has come away from the binding and thebinding is tender, split in several places. Bright and clean. Each page has been amateurly reinforced at the gutter, occasionally rendering them difficult to open. Several closed tears. Overall: FAIR.

        Original Watercolour View of the Glendalough Monastery in Ireland].

      1871 - [1871]. Watercolour on paper ca. 25,5x34,5 cm (9 ½ x 13 ½ in). Artist's signature "A.D.", slightly indistinct date and caption "Glendalough" in the lower corners. Traces of old mount on verso, minor foxing on the right margin, right lower corner slightly rubbed with the date faded, otherwise a very good watercolour. Attractive watercolour view of the 6th century monastic settlement in Glendalough, 50 km south of Dublin. The artist depicts Glendalough's famous stone arches, now covered with the overgrown grass and trees, and a ruin of the renowned Round Tower, here shown in its original state - before the reconstruction of 1876, when a conical roof was rebuilt with the original stones. The scene taken on a bright summer day features local peasants having a conversation near the arch. Full of light and air, it gives a wonderful impression of this medieval Irish Christian site. The artist was Irish watercolourist Augusta Drummond, an acquaintance of renowned poet and artist Edward Lear (18121-1888). She was born in Kilberry, Kildare, Ireland to Robert Verschoyle and Catherine Curtis. On 5th July 1878 she married Captain Alfred Manners Drummond, nephew of 6th Duke of Rutland, Captain of the Rifle Brigade, discriminating art collector, acquaintance and client of Edward Lear. The couple had a honeymoon trip to India in 1878, and subsequently travelled to continental Europe and Australia; the travel impressions were realized by Augusta in a series of skillful watercolours. One of them depicting Tasmania and titled "Browns River near Hobart Town" is now in the collection of the National Library of Australia.
