        [SYDNEY] Exhibition Building, Alfred Park.

      Circa 1872. Albumen print photograph, 228 x 300 mm, unmounted, verso with contemporary inscription: 'Sydney Exhibition', in good condition, a sharply detailed print with rich tonal range. This photograph was sourced with a group that included similar format prints of the interior of the New South Wales Government Printing Office, strong evidence to suggest that this superb view of the old Exhibition Building in Alfred Park was also taken by the Government Photographer - most probably Charles Pickering. Under magnification, the sign at the front entrance can be read: 'EXHIBITION - OPEN EVERY NIGHT'. The plaques on the front of the building, 'ERECTED A.D. 1872' and 'WALTER RENNY, MAYOR', can also be read. Outside the entrance we can see a canon and its gun limber alongsode. A small crowd at left, which includes a colonial soldier - presumably an artilleryman - poses for the camera. The photograph was probably taken during the agricultural exhibition of 1872.

        The "Bab" Ballads. [together with:] More "Bab" Ballads. Much Sound and Little Sense

      London: John Camden Hotten [and] George Routledge and Sons, 1869 / 1872 - A Masterful Pair of Inlaid Bindingsby Bayntun-Riviere[BAYNTUN-RIVIÉRE, binders]. GILBERT, W.S. The "Bab" Ballads. [together with:] More "Bab" Ballads. Much Sound and Little Sense. London: John Camden Hotten [and] George Routledge and Sons, 1869 [and] 1872. First editions. Two octavo volumes (6 15/16 x 5 1/4 inches; 177 x 133 mm.). ix, [2], 14-222, [4, adv.]; viii, [1], 14-224, [4. adv.] pp. Black and white frontispieces with tissue guards, black and white text illustrations by the author throughout. Neatly written in black ink on the recto of the frontispiece of More "Bab" Ballads is a twelve line poem "Once a Fairy?" dated "Feby. 18th. 1875."Bound c. 1960 by Bayntun-Rivière & Son in full emerald green crushed levant morocco. Covers ruled in gilt, front covers with characters from the books inlaid in various colored morocco's within a scalloped gilt frame. Spines with five raised bands decoratively ruled and paneled and lettered in gilt in compartments, green cockerell end-papers, all edges gilt. Original gilt decorated green cloth front covers bound in at end of each volume. Wood engraved bookplate of Peter & Margery Morris on each paste-down. A fine set housed in a green cloth slipcase.The bindings of Bayntun-Rivière, in the quality of the materials, the forwarding, and in the finish and delicacy of the tooling are deserving of almost unqualified commendation. Their bindings are wonderful specimens of artistic taste, skill, and perseverance. Robert Rivière (1808-1882) bequeathed his business to this son-in-law in 1880, and the name of the firm was changed to Rivière & Son. Bayntun of Bath acquired Rivière c. 1930."Originally published in the columns of FUN, a monthly magazine, The Bab Ballads are light verse by W. S. Gilbert, illustrated with his own comic drawings. Gilbert wrote the Ballads before he became famous for his comic opera librettos with Arthur Sullivan. In writing The Bab Ballads Gilbert developed his unique 'topsy-turvy' style, where the humor was derived by setting up a ridiculous premise and working out its logical consequences, however absurd. The Ballads also reveal Gilbert's cynical and satirical approach to humor. They became famous on their own, as well as being a source for plot elements, characters and songs that Gilbert would recycle in the Gilbert and Sullivan operas. The Bab Ballads take their name from Gilbert's childhood nickname, and he later began to sign his illustrations 'Bab'" (Wikipedia).By 1868, Gilbert's poems had won sufficient popularity to justify a collected edition. He selected forty-four of the poems (thirty-four of them illustrated) for an edition of The "Bab" Ballads - Much Sound and Little Sense. A second collected edition, More "Bab" Ballads, including thirty-five ballads (all illustrated), appeared in 1872."Nothing else quite like the Ballads has ever been produced in the English language. They contain both satire and nonsense, as well as a great deal of utter absurdity. The Ballads were read aloud at private dinner-parties, public banquets and even in the House of Lords. The ballads have been much published, and there are even recordings of readings of some of them" (Ibid.). [Attributes: First Edition]

        [CIRCUS HISTORY] The Hairless Horse, Caoutchouc

      Circa 1872. Albumen print photograph of an engraving, carte de visite format (63 x 103 mm), verso with imprint of 'Davies, Photo. Bourke St., Melbourne', and printed text headed 'The Hairless Horse, Caoutchouc'; the albumen print fine, with a small surface mark at lower right edge; mount in very good condition. A similar wood engraving by Ebenezer and David Syme of Melbourne, dated July 16, 1872, is held in the collection of the State Library of Victoria, Melbourne. This carte reflects popular taste of the period, with its fascination for freaks of nature displayed as curiosities in sideshows or circuses. The horse's name, Caoutchouc, deriving from the Tupi (an indigenous language of Brazil) word for "rubber", was intended to describe the appearance and feel of the horse's coat. The horse was reputedly captured as a wild brumbynear the Balonne River in southeast Queensland, and was subsequently exhibited in New South Wales and Victoria in 1871-72. The printed text on the back of the carte states: "He has been declared by the savants of New South Wales and Victoria to be the most remarkable deviation of nature from her conventional groove that ever came before their observation. The skin is entirely devoid of one single hair, and in colour is a beautiful glossy black, giving him the appearance of being cast from indiarubber - hence his name -Caoutchouc." An entry in the Auckland Daily Southern Cross of November 28, 1873, advertises Caoutchouc's arrival and presentation there, and also gives a brief history of the horse. The article states that the entrepreneur owner of the horse will not sell him - not even for 1500 pounds - and that the horse is now bound for San Francisco, to be taken thence across the United States and ultimately to the United Kingdom. The British Library holds a poster which advertises an appearance of Caoutchouc at the Alexandra Palace, Muswel Hill, London (tentatively dated 1885 but most likely 1875), bearing an image of the horse and the caption "The marvellous equine phenomenon, Caoutchouc or hairless horse. Just imported from Queensland, Australia, and never before Exhibited in England, is on view daily. Admission threepence." This carte de visite appears unrecorded in Australian collections.

        The Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection

      London: John Murray,, 1872. Or the Preservation of favoured races in the struggle for life. Sixth edition, with additions and corrections (eleventh thousand). Octavo. Original green ribbed-grain cloth, gilt titles to spine, frames and central vignette blocked in blind to covers, brown coated endpapers. Folding diagram facing page 91. Ryde Young Men's Christian Association bookplate to front pastedown. Contemporary ownership stamp of Ryde businessman J. N. Tarrant to front free endpaper verso. Spine gently rolled, rear board a little bowed, minor wear to extremities, top edge dust toned, small bump to bottom edge of text block, inner hinges cracked but holding; a very good copy. Sixth edition, first issue, marked as the "eleventh thousand" on the title page. The sixth edition is the last lifetime edition. Darwin continually made revisions to his text; this edition featuring a new chapter, chapter VII, and a glossary by W. S. Dallas. "The edition was aimed at a wider public and printed in smaller type ... giving the general impression of a cheap edition, which at 7s. 6d, it was". It is also the first edition of The Origin of Species to feature the word "evolution"; the term was first used by Darwin in The Descent of Man, published in 1871. This edition was subsequently reprinted unchanged from stereos in 1872 and again in 1873. The final issue is dated 1876; stereos of this issue were used for the very many issues which followed, from 1878 to 1929, continuing to include the summary of differences and the historical sketch.

        Distribution of Australasian volutes.Sydney, Alexander W. Douglas, 1872. 8vo. Contemporary blue paper wrappers.

      - WorldCat (6 copies, all but 1 in Australia); not in Ferguson. English-language accounts of the distribution of 48 species of sea snails of the genus Voluta around Australia, New Zealand, Tasmania, New Guinea, the Solomon Islands and other southwest Pacaific islands, sometimes with descriptive notes on variations in form or colouration. He also comments on the beauty of some species. Several species discussed were newly discovered by Cox himself. With a 4-page introductory note, a table of contents and an alphabetical index. Writing in 1872, Cox already notes that the once common Voluta magnifica, whose shell can grow to about 30 cm in length, has been so highly prized by collectors that it is now hard to find. He also describes several other spieces as formerly abundent but now rare. With the last (blank) and first leaves foxed, and an old vertical fold through the leaves, but still in good condition. The wrappers are foxed and waterstained, with the spine tattered. A remarkable record of the distribution of 48 species of Australasian sea snails in the mid-19th centruy. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

This copy with a tipped-in autograph letter signed by John Tenniel to Mr. Blandford, on headed notepaper from 10, Portsdown Road, Maida Hill, W., and dated Oct. 26. 1888, in which the artist gracefully declines a dinner due to a prior commitment to attend the 'Punch dinner', as it is his '"bounden duty" always to be present at that "festive function"'. Also with the embossed monogram of John Tenniel affixed to the inner upper board above a neat inscription in the hand of the artist and satirical cartoonist Ronald Searle, "Kaye Searle Sept 1952". The book was apparently a gift from him to his wife in that year. Searle is best known, of course, as the creator of the St. Trinian's series of books and those about the schoolboy Molesworth. Kaye Searle, formerly Webb, worked at Penguin in the 1960s. A previous owner of this copy has left a card in the box indicating that he worked with her there in the 1960s.

        Typed Letter Signed, in German, 4to, Vienna, Oct. 28, 1916

      - Stekel writes to the painter, Ludwig Hessheimer (1872-1956) giving his view of Hessheimer's exhibition. In full. "Dear Mr. Hessheimer, I just returned from your exhibition. It made a deep and lasting impression on me. You have seen everything with the eyes of a poet. I like the mood pictures best. There were quite a few people there, all of whom were full of praise. Even painters.and that means something. The pictures of Ohrida lake are reminiscent of Bocklin. They have depth and grandeur. In the picture 'Longing' I was perturbed by the angel on high. He is not giving a fortunate impression which may be due to the position of his legs. Also the etching in which the images of wife and child appear to the soldier in the snow suffers from the flaw that visions must be expressed more shadowy, like a delicate breath which spreads across the distance. The contrast between the real and the vision must be more pronounced. But these are just trifles. You now have a foothold in Vienna and we hope to greet you as one of our own soon." He signs, "Dr. Wilhelm Stekel." The letter gives insight into Stekel's ability as an art critic. Stekel argued in "Bisexual Love" (1922) that both heterosexuality and homosexuality require repression and sublimation of natural urges.

        View of St. Matthew's Church, Guildford, W.A. after the hurricane of 10th March, 1872.

      Albumen print photograph, 95 x 162 mm, laid down on its original album leaf, contemporary manuscript caption in ink beneath image, 'View of St. Matthew's Church, Guildford, W.A. after the hurricane of 10th March, 1872', no photographer's imprint, the albumen print with slight loss of contrast and some wrinkling in the lower right corner from when it was laid down, otherwise in very good state, the album leaf with some light creasing, not affecting the print. The original St. Matthew's was the Swan River Colony's first church, an octagonal mudbrick structure built between 1836 and 1839 in Guildford, the earliest settlement in the Colony. The second St. Matthew's was intended as a permanent place of Church of England worship, and was consecrated in 1860. However, on March 10th 1872, in the middle of a baptismal service, it was completely destroyed in a freak storm. Miraculously, there were no fatalities among the parishioners, but the only substantial object to survive the disaster was the church's harmonium. This image is known from the State Library of Western Australia's acetate copy negative (30 x 40 mm), made around 1940 and taken from a collection of photographs from the Royal Western Australian Historical Society. However, we can locate no other contemporary albumen print of this important photograph in Australian collections. Whilst the photographer is unidentified, the most likely contender is the firm of Manning and Knight. It is also possible that Alfred Chopin, who had recently started working as a professional photographer in Perth, travelled the short distance up the Swan River to document this event.

        Queensland Aboriginals. Photographed direct from life by E.H. Forster at his studio, Maryborough

      1872-74. Albumen print photograph, carte de visite format, image 79 x 52 mm (oval), mount 104 x 63 mm; verso imprintedQueensland Aboriginals. Photographed direct from life by E.H. Forster at his studio, Maryborough, with a lithographed illustration of Aborigines hunting kangaroos; a strong albumen print in very good condition; the mount with some light foxing. Having previously worked for Beaufoy Merlin's American and Australasian Photographic Company, Irish-born photographer Edward Forster opened his own studio in Kent Street, Maryborough in May, 1872. He remained at these premises until 1874. This photograph of three local Aborigines - two women wearing European clothing and a man wearing a king plate (the name on which is not clear) - was one of a specially produced series of cartes de visite sold by Forster during this period. This particular image appears unrecorded in Australian collections. Although the man in the photograph is unidentified, it is likely that he was one of numerous "kings" in the Maryborough region. The fact that the bestowing of king plates was common practice in Queensland at this time is borne out by an advertisement placed by an enterprising ironmonger, John Donnelly, in the Maryborough Almanach for 1875: "ABORIGINAL King Plates, Dog Collars, Watches, Rings, Gold and Silver Plate, Plated Ware, and every description of Metal, Ivory, Bone, or Mother of Pearl, neatly Engraved."

      Louisville: Stackhouse Print, 1872. Broadside, 20 x 5 1/4 inches. Minor foxing, several horizontal folds. Very good. A handsomely produced broadside advertising a lottery to raise money to pay for a magnificent Victorian building, recently purchased for $210,000, to house the Public Library of Kentucky, located in Louisville. The library promised to be "open and free to the gratuitous use and enjoyment of all citizens of every State in the union." The lottery consisted of 100,000 lottery tickets to be sold for the chance at one of 1000 prizes to be handed out at the Second Grand Gift Concert, on Saturday, September 28, 1872. The drawing for the tickets was handled by "blind children from 10 to 15 years of age." The engraved view shows the grand, three-story building flying a large American flag, and dozens of people arriving by foot, by horse and carriage, and by horse- drawn streetcar.

        Through The Looking Glass, and What Alice Found There

      London: Macmillan and Co., 1872 Illustrated by John Tenniel. First edition, first printing, with "wade" instead of "wabe" to page 21. Original publisher's red cloth, with an illustration of the Red Queen to the front board in gilt, with an illustration of the White Queen to the rear panel in gilt, all edges gilt, black coated endpapers. Very good, with minor repairs to the spine ends, some toning to the spine, light soiling and some dimming to the boards, binder's ticket to the rear pastedown, former owner's bookplate to the front pastedown, some scattered pencil underlining and minor soling to the otherwise very fresh interior. A sturdy and pleasing copy. Housed in a custom slipcase with matching chemise. Through the Looking Glass is Lewis Carroll's sequel to his popular children's novel Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865). In this story, which represents the child protagonist's journey from adolescence to adulthood, Alice ventures into a fantasy world through the mirror above her fireplace. Throughout the novel, Carroll includes nonsense poetry, including the playful and popular "Jabberwocky." Like Alice, Through the Looking Glass is illustrated by John Tenniel. Carroll originally intended to write this sequel as early as 1866, but had trouble persuading Tenniel to illustrate it. Writer and artist had a somewhat volatile relationship as a result of their mutual perfectionism: just as the true first edition of Alice was suppressed because of unsatisfactory illustrations, Through the Looking Glass's illustrations were heavily edited. Tenniel demanded the removal of a character that was too difficult to illustrate, whereas Carroll replaced Tenniel's "Jabberwock" plate with an image of the White Knight, which was less frightening, as a frontispiece.. Illus. by Tenniel, John. 1st Edition.. Hard Cover. Very Good.
