        Title in Arabic.] The Kasidah (couplets) of Haji Abdu El-Yezdi: a lay of the higher law. Translated and annotated by his friend and pupil, F[rancis] B[urton]

      privately printed, London 1880 - First edition, first issue; 4to, pp. [4], 33; original yellow printed wrappers bound in; contemporary olive buckram lettered in gilt on upper cover; extremities browned, mild red ink transfer on the upper wrap, a number of erudite pencil annotations; very good copy. Penzer, noting that the yellow wrappers contained a printed half-title, is frequently misinterpreted as suggesting that there is a half-title page. This is not the case. There is no half-title page, only the half-title as printed on the front wrapper. The first two issues of this title were published by Bernard Quaritch, the first issue omits the Quaritch name and the date from the title. The two issues together did not comprise more than 200 copies, "and Messrs. Quaritch state that under a hundred were sold." Ostensibly translated by Burton, he in fact was its author; written in 1857 under his nom-de-plume Hâjî Abdû Al-Yazdi but it was not published until 1880 by Quaritch. Penzer, p. 97. Casada 84.

        The First Exhibition of the Art Society of New South Wales held at the Garden Palace... Catalogue

      Sydney: Turner & Henderson, 1880. In remarkable original condition.. Duodecimo, pp. 22, [ii]; original wrappers, preserved in a folding cloth box. The rare catalogue of the Society's inaugural exhibition held at the Garden Palace which had been purpose-built for the Sydney International Exhibition in 1879. An impressive two hundred and twenty oils, watercolours and drawings were hung: Mrs. Alfred Williams' painting Ophelia, the most expensive at £75, was highly praised by the Bulletin art critic at the time. Her identification as Mrs. Florence E. Williams gives more understanding of the high price as she had exhibited under that version of her name at the Royal Academy since her teens before coming to Australia. Her inclusion was significant for, as Joan Kerr has noted, "Florence's paintings seem unique for Australia at the time when domestic genre paintings are almost unknown." Florence was a founding member of the Art Society and had been a friend and pupil of (and much influenced by) Millais. As one of the very few figure paintings in the exhibition Ophelia gained most attention, but she also had four other oils in the exhibition. An earlier painting (not in this exhibition) of a crimson Rosella set against lush vegetation and Mount Wellington was sold for a record $90,000 in 2015.As well, the catalogue notes W. C. Piguenit's Sydney Harbour from North Shore priced at £52.10.0 (in modern times it reached $198,000 at Melbourne auction). The catalogue also records works by Collingridge, Halstead and Short, as well as seven New Zealand watercolours by J C Hoyte (the President of the Society). The list of "Working Members" names 80 artists and the Honorary and subscribing Members 47, notably Sir Henry Parkes.From 1871 the New South Wales Academy of Art had held annual exhibitions and had urged the establishment of a Public Art Gallery. This had as much to do with inter colonial rivalry - Melbourne had opened its Gallery in 1861 - as it did about fine art. Once a permanent home for the collection had been found the New South Wales Academy of Art dissolved in 1880 and it was acknowledged that an 'artists' society' was needed: a society of professional artists rather than the more inclusive Academy. Artists, led by Arthur and George Collingridge, sought to establish an Australian school of painting and the first exhibition of The Art Society of New South Wales was held in December 1880 following its formation in July of that year. This catalogue notes that the Society was established for the 'promotion and preservation of the Fine Arts in Sydney" and to "enable professional artists to exhibit their works advantageously." Further aims of the Society were lectures on art, and a sketching club. The Life Class, already established will 'give rise to a greater variety in the works…."This catalogue is a rare surviving record of the Art Society's first exhibition and succinctly captures the impressive depth of Australian Art in the late nineteenth century. Provenance: John Chapman collection.

        COMING SOON! PARSONS & POOL'S ORIGINAL UNCLE TOM'S CABIN AND TENNESSEE JUBILEE SINGERS [caption title]

      [Providence, 1880. Broadside, 24 x 9 1/4 inches. Several small holes at bottom of sheet, else fine. Illustrated broadside for a performance of UNCLE TOM'S CABIN, with woodcuts showing scenes from the book. The text continues: "The only company on the road to-day presenting the old-time manuscript version of Uncle Tom's Cabin. Wait for us, watch for us, as we will positively appear in your city soon. Watch for day & date." The Jubilee Singers originated at Fisk University, and from 1871-1878 toured the United States and Europe as fundraisers for the University. In 1879, the Singers were organized into a joint stock company. This broadside is presumed to be from this later period.

        Birds of the Bahama Islands

      CORY (CHARLES B.) The Birds of the Bahama Islands, first edition, 8 hand-coloured lithographed plates, tissue guards,publisher's black cloth boards, gilt title vignette to upper board, modern black morocco spine, [Nissen IVB 203 Wood, p.300 Zimmer p.137], 4to, Boston, by the Author, 1880. Condition: see photographs. Clean copy with fresh & vivid color plates. First edition of this outstanding ornithological work describing 149 native species of the West Indies, with eight beautifully hand-colored lithographic plates. Among the more outstanding ornithological works dealing with the West Indies we may mention Charles B. Corys Birds of the Bahama Islands, a popular account of the 149 species recorded from the islands (Anker, 84). It contains not only descriptions and notes on each native species, but a hypothetical list of 36 additional birds that might occasionally occur there. Cory, himself, made five trips to nearly all of the islands of the West Indies, and besides, sent out various collectors to the different islands, some of whom were in the field for from six to eighteen months each, collecting altogether many thousands of specimens. Mr. Corys book forms an invaluable hand-book of West Indian ornithology, and will prove indispensable to all future workers in this field (J.A. Allen). He was appointed honorary curator of the Field Museum in Chicago in 1893.

        Leçons sur les maladies mentales

      X, 884pp. Paris, Asselin & Cie, 1880-1883, in-8, X, 884pp, broché, PREMIERE EDITION des cours donnés par Ball entre 1875 et 1876 à la faculté de médecine de Paris. Benjamin Ball (1833-93), élève de Moreau de Tours, fut le premier titulaire de la chaire de clinique des maladies mentales et de l'encéphale à l'asile Sainte-Anne. Influencé par son maître, il s'intéresse aux substances aujourd'hui classés parmi les stupéfiants: il préconise par exemple l'emploi de l'opium dans le traitement de la mélancolie (p. 235) tandis que Moreau de Tours conseillait le hachisch. La théorie de l'hérédité de Magnan et de Charcot eut également un impact fort sur sa pensée, comme le montre sa 16° leçon, consacrée à l'hérédité (p.353). dernier plat détaché.

        THE SPECIMEN BOOK OF FRUITS, FLOWERS AND ORNAMENTAL TREES. CAREFULLY DRAWN AND COLORED FROM NATURE FOR THE USE OF NURSERYMEN

      Rochester, N.Y.: M. Brunswick & Co., 1880. 89 chromolithographed and pochoir plates, plus lithographed titlepage, each approximately 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches. Oblong octavo. Original black morocco, gilt and blind tooled. Owners' names gilt lettered on front cover. Binding somewhat rubbed, with patches of discoloration. Pencil ownership inscription on titlepage. Light tanning, occasional offsetting from plates. Very good. An extensive salesman's nursery specimen book for the McCabe Bros., located in North Bangor, Maine, containing eighty-nine pochoir and chromolithograpic color plates. The book contains eleven examples of apples and thirteen types of roses. Also included are examples of plums, bears, several varieties of berry, as well as as twenty- five types of other flowers and thirteen kinds of trees. "Mina (or Minnie) Brunswick (1849-1925) is listed in the Rochester city directories as a producer of fruit plates or nurserymen's plates from 1888 through 1920. Her first advertisement, in the 1889 directory, reads in part: 'M. Brunswick & Co., (Formerly with D.M. Dewey), Manufacturers of Hand Painted Fruit and Ornamental Plates. All of Mr. Dewey's artists have been retained by us'...Brunswick, by the 1910s, appears to have been the last producer of hand-painted (stenciled) plates in Rochester" - Kabelac. Nearly all the plates include the Brunswick imprint, which suggests that this album was sold ready-made. The more usual practice was for the salesmen to make up his sample-book from individual plates from a number of different publishers.

Eine detaillierte Kollation kann auf Wunsch mitgeteilt werden. Nissen, ZBI 3761 (Tierreich), BBI 1814n (Pflanzenreich). – Die einzelnen Werke in unterschiedlichen Auflagen, jedoch wie immer unter einem Reihentitel zusammengefaßt, wobei die Vortitel das zoologische Werk als ersten Teil, das botanische als zweiten und das geologisch-paläontologische als dritten bezeichnen, jenes über die Anatomie des Menschen dagegen als Nachtrag zum zoologischen Teil benennen. Die Werke basieren im wesentlichen auf den Schriften G. H. Schuberts zur Naturgeschichte (und führen dessen Namen auch im Titel), wurden aber jeweils von bekannten zeitgenössischen Naturwissenschaftlern überarbeitet, z.B. Moritz Willkomm (Botanik) oder G. A. Kenngott (Mineralogie). Die Reihe stellt eine populäre, gleichwohl wissenschaftlich sehr sorgfältig gearbeitete Naturgeschichte dar, welche, in zahlreichen Auflagen erschienen, große Verbreitung in Deutschland fand, aber in sämtlichen Teilen auch in die großen und kleinen Verkehrssprachen des westlichen Kulturkreises übersetzt wurde. Aufgrund der vom Herausgeber beabsichtigten Verwendung als illustrierte Lehrbücher für die Jugend sind unbenutzte und daher von Gebrauchspuren weitgehend verschonte Sets der Reihe mittlerweile jedoch schwer aufzutreiben. 4000 g

Spine cloth is loosening, chipped and missing 1/2" at base. Boards rubbed and loosening. Text block remains tight. Ex- library copy from New York Academy of Sciences. No atlas.

"Beyond the Hundredth Meridian" was unlike any of Stegner's previous works, requiring research spanning 5 years. Stegner often consulted with his mentor Bernard DeVoto during the writing. At one point Stegner writes to DeVoto, "I really am scared to death to let anybody see this, for some reason. Maybe I know the thing stinks." The writing of Hundredth Meridian would solidify Stegner's growing environmentalism and the book remains a classic of the history of the west.

        Photographs - (1) View of Kangaroo Point is Taken By Renowned Photographer Albert Lomer and (1) Street View of Toowoomba is

      Australia, 1880. Two original photographs from Queensland in Australia, taken circa 1882, both with embedded captions, mounted one recto and one verso to the same cardstock mount. The Kangaroo Point photograph was taken by Australia's photographer and colourist Albert Lomer whose studio name appears as the embedded caption. This photograph measures approximately 20,5 x 14 cm, being an albumen print with some age-toning, otherwise in very good condition. The Toowoomba photograph is a gelatin silver print photograph measuring approximately 19,5 x 15 cm, with indication of some creasing, otherwise in very good condition. The cardstock to which both photographs are mounted measures 21 x 15 cm. A very rare albumen print photograph of Kangaroo Point, Brisbane, taken by renowned photographer Albert Lomer around 1882, shows some of the foremost commercial buildings, including a shoreside timber yard, as well as the expanse of residences developing. This view is captured from the north side of the Brisbane River looking south, and likens a similar photograph from a slightly different spot, which Lomer may have taken the same day while creating his panoramic view of Brisbane River from Bowen Terrace, the panorama being composed of five views. [The John Oxley Library, in the State Library of Queensland, holds the original panorama, found in the Lomer Photograph Album dating to 1884.] This photograph bears the embedded stamp "Lomer & Cie". Albert Lomer was an important commercial photographer, active in Australia. He opened the first photographic studio in Brisbane in 1862, and worked from a variety of studio addresses in Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney and Queensland from 1862 to 1900. He opened a studio at Sydney in partnership with Andrew Chandler, advertising that they were from W. Davies & Co. of Melbourne, where both had presumably trained. Their studio, The London Photographic Company, was at 419 George Street. By February 1867 Lomer was operating the business alone. In 1872-73 Lomer was working at 57 Bourke Street in Melbourne. He then established a very successful Brisbane studio at 158 Queen Street which lasted from 1874 until 1905, although he apparently no longer ran it after 1880. Branch studios were opened in various parts of the colony, including the Lomer studio at Mackay in 1887 (managed by J.P. Kemp), a studio at Toowoomba (1893-96) and one at Ipswich (1898-99). Lomer was again in Sydney in 1880-95. Several photographs from Lomer's Brisbane studio have survived, although mainly carte-de-visite portraits. Kangaroo Point is one of the earliest suburbs settled in Brisbane and subsequently, is one of Brisbane's oldest suburbs, rich in history. In 1823, explorer John Oxley described Kangaroo Point as a "jungle, fringed with mangroves with the higher land open forest, covered with grass". During the time of the subsequent convict settlement (1825-1841), Kangaroo Point was cleared and used for cultivation of crops. Subsequently, the area was opened up for free settlement, the first land sales taking place on 13 December 1843. Among the early purchasers was Captain J.C.Wickham, the Police Magistrate. Surveyor James Warner built the first house at Kangaroo Point in 1844. Kangaroo Point's first school was opened in 1861 by the Church of England, which came under the control of the Board of Education in 1867. In 1887, the Yungaba Immigration Centre was built on Main Street at Kangaroo Point to replace the facilities on William Street. The photograph mounted to verso is captioned 'Street View Toowoomba' and shows early residences flanking a wide dirt and gravel road. Toowoomba, known as the "Garden City", is situated in the Darling Downs region of Queensland, approximately 130 km west of Brisbane. Today being the sixth largest city in Queensland, this nostalgic photograph captures a tranquil setting during Toowoomba's early period of development. Toowoomba's colonial history traces back to 1816 when English botanist and explorer Allan Cunningham arrived in Australia from Brazil, and, subsequently in June 1827 discovered 4 million acres of rich farming and grazing land, which became known as the Darling Downs. The first settlers in the Downs began arriving in the 1840s, initially founding the township of Drayton, which is now an outer suburb. By the end of the 1840s Drayton had grown to the point where it had its own newspaper, general store, trading post and the Royal Bull's Head Inn, which was built by William Horton and still stands today. Land for the town was first officially surveyed in 1849, then again in 1853. By 1858 Toowoomba had a population of 700, three hotels and many stores. Land was selling at £4 per acre in 1850, and within ten years increased to £150 per acre. After further growth and the addition of a second township, in 1860 it was declared a municipality by Governor Bowen. The first council elections were held the following year, with William Henry Groom voted mayor (he was also elected to parliament in 1862). A gaol was built in 1864. A rail link to Ipswich, and hence Brisbane, opened in 1867, bringing with it commercial development. Toowoomba would be declared a city in 1904, approximately eight to ten years after the photograph was taken. [The Toowoomba Historical Society holds some photographs from its formative years.] . Very Good.
