        The Cruise of the Freak. A Narrative of a Visit to the Islands in Bass and Banks Straits with some Account of the Islands

      Launceston: J.S.V Turner, 1872. Octavo, folding frontispiece map, eight plates and four leaves of parochial Launceston advertisements bound at the rear; recently rebound in buckram retaining part of the original publisher's cloth. Aboriginal Mission settlements in Bass Strait. Scarce and informative book containing much information on Aboriginal Mission to the islands north of Tasmania.Marcus Blake Brownrigg (1835-1890) was an Anglican minister who worked for much of his life in Tasmania, earning praise for his ministry to the poor. 'One of Brownrigg's chief interests was the Mission to the Half-Caste on the Islands of Bass Straits, which in fourteen years he visited thirteen times. Among his published records of these trips was The Cruise of the Freak (1872), illustrated by him on stone for lithograph; with the profits from his writings he bought books for the islanders' (ADB).The Freak was a cutter of some nine tons, used by Brownrigg during his many forays into the Bass Strait. Ferguson's notes that 'apart from its historical value this book is a curious specimen of early colonial printing. Some interesting particulars are given of the Aborigines and G. A. Robinson's work among them'. Brownrigg was an artist of some skill, and also a student of homeopathy, which he used to remedy the ills of his poorer parishionersThis copy was inscribed by the author in his later years R.H.D. White (dated Launceston October 1880). Brownrigg passed away a decade later from lingering bronchitis contracted while sailing on the Bass Strait.

Octavo, pp. [1-8] [1-3] 4-213 [214: blank] [215-216: ads] [note: first leaf is a blank; fly leaves precede first blank and follow page (216)], four illustrations in the text,. original chocolate-brown cloth, spine panel stamped in silver.. Small water strike on front panel, some even dust soiling to spine. panel, a very good, tight copy. Very scarce. (#20277). First edition. This book also exists in a more elaborate decorative binding, but one that is prone to bubbling of the cloth. An under- appreciated gem, richly ornamented with supernatural motifs, anticipating the revival of medievalism by William Morris. "Literary fables after the manner of the German Romantics, with a melange of Classical, Medieval and Oriental motifs, well-blended. First adventure 'Monare' probably influenced by Fouque's THE MAGIC RING; in one episode young knight slays evil de Maupre, brigand and werewolf, gathers blood in silver flagon to raise his victims from the dead. Other adventures involve witchcraft, visit to the Underworld (a la Tannhauser), magical charms, and a doppelganger." - Robert Knowlton. "Well-sustained, imaginative; among the best late 19th century fantasies." - Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction 714. The last tale, "Ombra," involves a variation of the blood motif found in the first. A doppelganger of the hero is magically created, animated by his blood and sent out in front of the hero to draw the enemy. The doppelganger is slain but this allows the hero, in disguise, to enter and wreak his rightful vengeance. Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy, p. 96. Bleiler (1978), p. 86. Reginald 06336. Wright (II) 1025.

        The Eustace Diamonds [True First Edition in Exceedingly Scarce Original Wrappers]

      New York: Harper Collins, 1872. First American edition. Hardcover. Very Good. An about Very Good copy of the first American edition -- also being the true first edition preceding the UK first edition, in the Publisher's EXCEEDINGLY SCARCE ORIGINAL WRAPPERS (spine cracked but mostly present, front wrapper modestly stained, binding askew, tide marks to the front wrapper and a few following pages, some pencil notes to each of the front and rear free endpapers, some pushing to some page corners); the third novel in Trollope's famed Palliser series which tells the tale of the adventuress Lizzy Greystock who Gerould describes as "the very beautiful, superficially clever and completely selfish daughter of an admiral who was no credit whatever to the British Navy". Lizzy Greystock beguiles the wealthy Sir Florian Eustace, traps him in marriage just prior to his death, and thereby comes into possession of a very expensive diamond necklace which she alleges to have been a gift to her from Sir Florian and which his family claims to be a non-tranferrable family heirloom. Published both in wrappers and in hardcover, this American edition is the true first edition, published in October, 1872. (The UK edition was not published until December of that year.) Copies in hardcover are seen reasonably often, but copies still in their original wrappers, as is this copy, are, as Smith states: "extremely scarce". We know of only one copy outside of a library or institution. An about Very Good copy of the TRUE FIRST EDITION of this major Trollope novel, PUBLISHED PRIOR TO THE UK FIRST, and an important book for the Trollope collector to have. EXCEEDINGLY SCARCE.

        The Poetical Works

      73 - London - Routledge 1872 - A really nice set of works by Bret Harte. Seven volumes bound in half leather with marble paper-covered boards. Bret Harte (1836-1902), American novelist and poet. He wrote tales of pioneering life in gold rush towns in California, as well as more serious verse. When receiving the news that Dickens had died, Harte wrote a heartfelt tribute, Dickens in Camp, which appeared in the Overland Monthly, a magazine he had strong editorial involvement with. Although very popular in the 1870's and 1880's, Harte's popularity dwindled. Twain would comment thathis writing was insincere. Harte lived much of his later life in Europe and is buried in Surrey. The Fool of Five Forks and Wan Lee are bound together in one volume, as are Thankful Blossom and My Friend the Tramp. The Luck of Roaring Camp has an introduction and glossaryby Tom Hood. Condition: The bindings aretight and firm with the boards and all internal pages securely attached. There is some wear to the extremities includingbumping to the corners, rubbing, fadingandmarks to the leather andboards. The author title labels are present, but the volume titles are lacking. Internally the pages are generally clean and bright withthe occasionalbrown spotorhandling mark. The overallcondition of these volumesis very good. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Tortoises, Terrapins, and Turtles drawn from life. Text by John Edwards Gray.

      London, Sotheran, Baer & Co., 1872. Folio (365 x 280mm). pp. iv, 16, with 61 lithographed plates, all drawn on stone by Edward Lear after J.D.C. Sowerby. Publisher's pictorial cloth, spine with gilt lettering A very fine copy of the first complete edition of this exquisite and rare work on turtles and tortoises. Four men were responsible for this classic herpetological work, i.e. Thomas Bell as superintendent of the plates and intended author, James de Carle Sowerby as artist, John Edward Gray as writer of the text to the final publication of the plates, and Edward Lear as lithographer. 40 plates first appeared in Bell's 'Monograph Testudinata' (1832-42). This work was never finished due to the publisher's bankruptcy. The 40 plates together with 20 additional, previously unpublished, plates were re-issued in 1872 by Sowerby and Lear.//The plates were reproductions of paintings by James de Carle Sowerby, produced by the process of lithography by Edward Lear. Bell was the first person to attempt to write a comprehensive account of the tortoises, and went to great lengths to acquire living tortoises which Sowerby was to draw. The book is the most outstanding collection of tortoise illustrations ever produced. //The unsold parts of Bell's 'Monograph of the Testudinata', together with Sowerby's plates for the rest of the work were acquired by the publishers Sotheran, who wished to publish a new edition of the 8 parts, incorporating the remaining plates. As Bell had declined to write the text for the last plates, it was natural that Gray should have been asked to do it. In this way, a complete edition of the book Bell had started in 1832, was finally published 40 years later in 1872. It had a new 16 page introduction by Gray. //Edward Lear is best known today for his limerick verses, but he began life as a natural history draughtsman and lithographer and became one of the finest illustrators of birds of all time.//Nissen ZBI, 1701; Adler p. 35; Wood 1872.

        Tetraophasis Obscurus (Verreaux's Monal-Partridge)

      New York 1872 - Daniel Giraud Elliot (1835-1915) was an American zoologist and a founding member of the American Museum of Natural History in New York and the American Ornithologists’ Union. Elliot was a noted figure in the nineteenth century scientific community for his talent as an artist and his collection of ornithological specimens, thought to be the of the finest in private collection. Elliot traveled throughout Europe and Asia studying and collecting. Through his own financing, Elliot was able to produce numerous comprehensive color-plate books on birds and mammals, without having to concede size or quality. Considered the highest achievement of Elliot’s career, he published two volumes of “A Monograph of the Phasianidae” from 1870-1872. The monograph was issued in six parts and contains over 80 extraordinarily detailed and beautiful plates. The superb plates from Daniel Giraud Elliot’s “A Monograph of the Phasianidae or Family of Pheasants” display the outstanding attention to detail and skill of the author as well as the artists Joseph Wolf, Joseph Smith and John Gerrard Keulemans, whom worked with Elliot on many of the prints. This lithograph, Tetraophasis Obscurus, measures 23.5” x 18.5”, and is in excellent condition with a few light staining marks. Commonly called Monal or Chestnut-throated Partridges, these birds are expertly hand-colored with crimson eye-circles, red throats outlined in white. The feathers covering their bodies are are gray-brown and create intricate patterns with white accents. The partridges are illustrated among lush grasses and delicate flowers and their large size and coloring make them the focal point of this dynamic lithograph.

        Letter Signed By U.S. President CALVIN COOLIDGE

      - COOLIDGE, CALVIN. (1872-1933). Thirtieth president of the United States. TLS. ("Calvin Coolidge"). 1p. 4to. Northampton, November 28, 1932. On his imprinted stationery to the editor-in-chief of The Saturday Evening Post, GEORGE H. LORIMER (1867-1937). "I suppose you expect to continue your publication under the handicap that the country has placed on us. If you think of anything I could do to help, I should be glad if you let me know. It seems quite a long time since I saw you. When I have been in touch with your office, I think you have been on vacation, but fortunately that gives me a chance to have a very pleasant acquaintance with Mr. Costain, if I recall the name correctly." Under Lorimer, The Saturday Evening Post became an immensely successful and influential magazine, known for featuring the work of leading contemporary writers and thinkers. Initially progressive, with Lorimer's drift to the right it later "became an active --if unofficial -- organ of the Republican party. Lorimer knew many presidents personally, and nearly every president during his editorship contributed to the Post" (DAB), including Coolidge. After leaving office in March 1929, Coolidge remained deeply interested in current affairs, and briefly wrote a syndicated column (the only president to do so), Thinking Things Over with Calvin Coolidge, which appeared in nearly two hundred newspapers. Canadian-born writer Thomas Costain (1885-1965), was an editor at The Post from 1920-34. Later, he turned to writing historical novels, the best known of which are The Black Rose and The Silver Chalice. Boldly signed, just two months before Coolidge's death. In very fine condition. * All our items are sent via Federal Express. Additional postage may be necessary. [Attributes: Signed Copy]
