        The Northern Territory of South Australia

      Adelaide, E. Spiller, Government Printer, 1880. Octavo, 55 pages. Original flush-cut quarter cloth and card covers, with the title page details repeated on the front cover; cloth a little flecked and slightly sunned and rubbed; card a little marked and mottled, with a small corner crease and minimal silverfish nibbling to the rear cover; small sections of the front pastedown pulled away from the cover by the stitching (but the binding is still tightly attached); trifling silverfish nibbling to the tip of the bottom corner of a handful of leaves; overall an excellent copy. At the time of publication, the author was Chief Warden of the Goldfields of the Northern Territory. 'This pamphlet is published by permission of the Government of South Australia; but it is only proper to state that the recommendations herein made, especially with reference to the formation of a railway, have not yet been considered by the Ministry, and must therefore be only regarded as the individual views of the author. A portion of the matter in the following pages was compiled by me' for Harcus's 'South Australia', published in 1876; it 'incorporated some useful papers written by residents there'. That book also contained an important chapter on Central Australia, incorporated here with additional material. To quote Harcus: 'the following interesting and well-written account of Central Australia, along the line of telegraph, has appeared in the "Register". The writer, Mr J.A. Giles, is well acquainted with the whole of the country which he describes. It is the best and most trust-worthy account of Central Australia which has yet been published'. Knight remarks that it 'affords an excellent insight into the vast tract of country'. The article takes up most of the 17-page chapter; it refers on occasion (and thus eliminates any misattribution) to Alfred Giles, the explorer with strong telegraph line credentials. It is augmented with a page of quotations from Charles Winnecke's 1879 Herbert River expedition reports. Ferguson 11231 (pretty light on detail, even to the extent of not recording the binding).

Unter den Widmungen gibt es eine kurze Partitur (Polka Mazur) oder auch Verse wie ?Einst hatten sich Deutsche und Slaven entzweit - Nun sind sie verglichen in jüngster Zeit - Sie leben nun friedlich, sie pflegen die Freundschaft Und fern sei für immer jedwede Feindschaft.

        Heidi's Lehr- und Wander-Jahre.

      Gotha: Friedrich Andreas Perthes,, 1880-81. Eine Geschichte für Kinder und auch für Solche, welche die Kinder lieb haben. Von der Verfasserin von "Ein Blatt auf Vrony's Grab". [Together with:] Heidi kann brauchen, was es gelernt hat. 2 volumes, octavo. Original red cloth decorated in black and lettered in gilt, marbled edges, white glossy endpapers, volume II with decorative endpapers, marbled edges. Housed in a custom red quarter morocco slipcase and red cloth chemise. Vol I: spine faded, recased with ?new endpapers, a couple of spots to contents; vol. II: contemporary ownership inscription in ink on title-page. A little colour restoration to head of spine, hinges partly cracked but holding. An excellent set. First editions of both parts in the original German. Throughout the 1870s Johanna Spyri (1827–1901) published stories for adults and children based around her reminiscences of growing up in rural Switzerland. But huge success came with the publication of Heidi, the most important Swiss contribution to children's literature after the "Swiss Family Robinson" of J. R. Wyss. As usual with Christmas books, the first book was published in December 1879 but dated the following year. Spyri wrote the novel in just four weeks. It was first published anonymously in German, and quickly became an international best-seller and has been translated into 50 languages (English in 1885 by Charles Tritten who later published the continuations "Heidi Grows Up" and "Heidi's Children"), sold 50 million copies, and inspired a whole series of films. Volume I was issued without the author's name on the title page but "Von der Verfasserin von 'Ein Blatt auf Vrony's Grab'" ("From the author of..."); volume II is titled "Heidi kann gebrauchen, was es gelernt hat" and was published as part V of "Geschichten für Kinder und auch für Solche, welche die Kinder lieb haben", this time under Spyri's name. Perhaps because of the fragile paper used, the first editions of the two parts of Heidi are scarce.

        Island Life: Or, The Phenomena and Causes of Insular Faunas and Floras, Including a Revision and Attempted Solution of the Problem of Geological Climates

      London: Macmillan and Co, 1880. First Edition. Cloth. Very good +. xvii, [3], 526 p. 24 cm. Frontispiece in partial colour, as well as 25 other maps and diagrams in b&w or sepia. Green cloth hardcover with gold and black impressing. Spine ends a little softened, corners bumped, hinges repaired internally, small label at top of front pastedown. Occasional foxing or staining. A complete book in its original binding. Alfred Russel Wallace (1823 – 1913) was a British naturalist, explorer, geographer, and biologist, known for independently conceiving, apart from Darwin, the theory of evolution through natural selection. Wallace did extensive fieldwork, first in the Amazon River basin and then in the Malay Archipelago, where he identified the faunal divide now termed the Wallace Line. Island Life has long been considered one of his most important works. In it he studies the influence of the glacial epochs on the distribution patterns of organisms and the characteristics of island biogeography. The book includes history's first theory of continental glaciation based on a combination of geographical and astronomical causes, a discussion of island classification, and a survey of worldwide island faunas and floras. Anticipating our present concern with both endangered species and vanishing environments, Wallace's ecological studies helped substantiate evolution.

        Attrib. Ernest Albert Waterlow RA PRWS (1850-1919) - 1880 Oil,.

      1880 - Attrib. Ernest Albert Waterlow RA PRWS (1850-1919) - Original 1880 Oil. A beautiful and very well executed woodland landscape scene with figures and dogs, excellently presented in a fantastic period gilt frame with acanthus leaf detail to the corners and scrolling scalloped detail. Monogrammed "EAW" and dated in red to the lower right. We have attributed this painting to Ernest Albert Waterlow RA PRWS (1850-1919) because we believe the monogram to be him after looking at other comparisons, and there are significant similarities in the handling of the paint and the style used. However, we do not have any provenance for this painting, thus we cannot list it as by Waterlow with absolute certainty. Signed and dated. On canvas. Condition is typical for a painting of this age, with some areas of light surface dirt and discolouration to the varnish, some fine passages of old craquelure, but the paint layer is stable. There are a few tiny areas of paint loss to the lower right near the signature. Inspection under UV light shows an area of restoration to the centre of the trees, with a repair patch to the reverse of the canvas. The frame has some small areas of loss to the decoration, mainly on the back edge. Size: Large (30-60cm) Framed: Yes Style: Realism Weight: 9000.00g [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

      Istanbul: Mehmet Riza Efendi Tash Destgah, 1298 AH/1880-1 CE - Quarto (275 x 200 mm), pp. 7, 4, 478. Contemporary Turkish goatskin, rebacked at an early date with black roan, covers elaborately gilt with fillet borders enclosing strapwork roll with floral infill, an inner vermiculate roll linking floral cornerpieces, and a large doubled arabesque device in blind to centre, gilt-tooled fore-edge flap with English comb-marbled paper verso, pink endpapers. Purple ink stamp, "C. E. S. Palmer, H. B. M. Consul" to opening page (see below), together with a further ownership ink stamp in Ottoman, an effaced Ottoman inscription, and a partial reproduction of the tughra. Extremities slightly rubbed, a few superficial worm-tracks to boards, contents browned, occasional nicks and chips to page-edges, sporadic foxing and marking, a number of vignettes sometime coloured in by hand with a purple pencil, closed tear to upper outer corner of pp. 3/4 of the main text and an extensive closed tear to pp. 165/6, both partially repaired with all the text intact, old repair to terminal licence leaf. In good condition, complete with the terminal licence leaf. Lithographed throughout. Text in double column, framed, floral section headings; tughra of Sultan Abdul Hamid II and bookseller's advertisement printed in gilt (as issued) to opening page, pp. 2-3 (opening spread of main text) also printed in gilt with floral 'unwan; numerous vignettes to the text depicting relics and holy sites, including a series of large vignettes of the 8 gates of heaven (pp. 350-7), 8 full-page illustrations including 2 cosmographic diagrams and depictions of the Prophet's relics (2 illustrations, pp. 215 and 230), Hell (2 illustrations, pp. 280-1), the liwa' al-hamd (p. 275), and Judgement Day (p. 293). Uncommon Istanbul imprint of this popular Turkish translation of the Magharib al-Zaman (Sunsets of Time), a devotional work on the Prophet Muhammad, translated from the original Arabic by the author, Ottoman Sufi poet Yazicioglu Mehmet (d. 1491; his name means "son of the scribe"). Mehmet, a native of the Gallipoli peninsula, was a follower of Haci Bayram-i Veli (1352-1430) and influenced by the writings of Andalusian mystic Ibn 'Arabi, whose Fusus al-Hikam he translated into Turkish. The Muhammadiyah covers Muhammad's biography, various aspects of Muslim devotion, and eschatological matters, including Gog and Magog, the Sun rising in the west, and the Day of Resurrection; Mehmet is notably preoccupied with the eschatological role of Jesus and of the Ottoman conquest of Constantinople in 1453. The earliest edition traced was printed in 1842 at Istanbul's Military Press ('Askeri Tab'hane). The book appears to have gone through numerous editions with various Istanbul printers throughout the 19th century, but surviving examples are uncommon, with 12 copies traced in libraries world-wide, of which 6 represent printings earlier than our copy. This copy belonged to British diplomat Charles Palmer, who as vice consul at Çanakkale during the build-up to the Great War filed numerous reports for Naval Intelligence on German and Ottoman mobilisation; when war began he was drafted into the Royal Navy and served on the staff of John de Robeck, commander of the Allied fleet in the Dardanelles. He is a major figure in 36 Days, a recent reappraisal of the Gallipoli landings by Australian military historian Hugh Doland (2010).

        IN MEMORIAM

      London: [Printed by Charles Whittingham at the Chiswick Press for] C. Kegan Paul & Co, 1880. No. 39 OF 50 LARGE PAPER COPIES, signed by the printer. This is a famous poet's most famous poem, beautifully printed and offered here in a very well-preserved, exuberantly decorated binding. First published in 1850, the present elegy is a tribute to Tennyson's college friend, Arthur Henry Hallam (1811-33), son of the famous historian Henry Hallam (1777-1859). Tennyson's first verses had been published before he was 20, but after Hallam's death, he published nothing for nine years, although all the while he was working on this poem, the product of protracted meditation. Written in rhyming quatrains, the poem moves from grief and doubt to certainty that the universe is purposeful. It was a sensational best-seller, striking a deep note of resonance with Victorian readers and the queen herself, who told the poet that "Next to the Bible, 'In Memoriam' is my comfort." Thomson says that the work "has been discussed from every point of view--proof of the profound influence it exercised over English thought for half a century." The work had major repercussions in Tennyson's professional and personal lives. It inspired Prince Albert, consort of Queen Victoria, to petition that its author be named Poet Laureate of the realm, to succeed the recently deceased Wordsworth. And it left Tennyson financially secure enough to enter the married life, a step that had been delayed for 10 years for pecuniary reasons. Our Large Paper Copy has margins occupying more than twice as much area as the text and is printed with Whittingham's usual excellence on thick, creamy paper. There is a hint of the Moorish in the intricately gilt binding, which sports the exhibition stamp that one invariably sees on especially fine work from the Zaehnsdorf workshop.. 204 x 131 mm. (8 x 5 1/4"). 1 p.l. (limitation), 281, [1] pp. No. 39 OF 50 LARGE PAPER COPIES, signed by the printer. VERY ATTRACTIVE CITRON CRUSHED MOROCCO, GILT, BY ZAEHNSDORF (stamp-signed on front doublure and with the firm's stamp on rear free endleaf), covers with mitered gilt frame enclosing large cornerpieces filled with swirling vines of azured gilt, the whole around an ovoid central panel featuring a gilt arabesque of delicate interlacing, flat spine tooled with curling azured gilt vines, gilt titling, BURGUNDY POLISHED CALF DOUBLURES tooled with a gilt strapwork design similar to the covers and framed by densely gilt turn-ins incorporating still more swirling vines, burgundy watered silk endleaves with gilt fleuron at corners, top edge gilt. With engraved frontispiece portrait. A Large Paper Copy. Spine slightly and evenly sun-darkened, a hint of rubbing along bottom edge, otherwise VERY FINE, the binding lustrous and scarcely worn, and the text clean, fresh, and bright, with immense margins. This is a famous poet's most famous poem, beautifully printed and offered here in a very well-preserved, exuberantly decorated binding. First published in 1850, the present elegy is a tribute to Tennyson's college friend, Arthur Henry Hallam (1811-33), son of the famous historian Henry Hallam (1777-1859). Tennyson's first verses had been published before he was 20, but after Hallam's death, he published nothing for nine years, although all the while he was working on this poem, the product of protracted meditation. Written in rhyming quatrains, the poem moves from grief and doubt to certainty that the universe is purposeful. It was a sensational best-seller, striking a deep note of resonance with Victorian readers and the queen herself, who told the poet that "Next to the Bible, 'In Memoriam' is my comfort." Thomson says that the work "has been discussed from every point of view--proof of the profound influence it exercised over English thought for half a century." The work had major repercussions in Tennyson's professional and personal lives. It inspired Prince Albert, consort of Queen Victoria, to petition that its author be named Poet Laureate of the realm, to succeed the recently deceased Wordsworth. And it left Tennyson financially secure enough to enter the married life, a step that had been delayed for 10 years for pecuniary reasons. Our Large Paper Copy has margins occupying more than twice as much area as the text and is printed with Whittingham's usual excellence on thick, creamy paper. There is a hint of the Moorish in the intricately gilt binding, which sports the exhibition stamp that one invariably sees on especially fine work from the Zaehnsdorf workshop.

        Carta Geologica del versante settentrionale dell'Appennino compreso fra i fiumi Montone e Foglia

      Romagna 1880 - Carta geologica, in due fogli giuntati ed intelati, raffigurante parte del territorio romagnolo compreso tra i fiumi Montone e Foglia. La sua realizzazione, che durò quasi un ventennio, si deve al Comm. Giuseppe Scarabelli Gommi Flamini, il quale il 28 settembre del 1863 ricevette dal Consiglio Provinciale di Forlì l'incarico per la stesura di una carta geologica da utilizzarsi quale base per la stesura di una monografia economica, statistica ed amministrativa della provincia. Con lettera datata 20 aprile 1865 la Regia Prefettura di Forlì commissiona la realizzazione della stessa a Scarabelli e Giovanni Capellini. Nel maggio del 1868 quest'ultimo dovette rinunciare all'incarico per motivi famigliari. Venne sostituito nei lavori di rilievo da Cesare d'Ancona. AL 29 settembre 1868 il disegno era terminato e nel 1873 la carta era pronta per passare alla fase di incisione e finalmente nel 1878 la carta era pronta per essere data alla stampe. Sia durante i lavori di realizzazione della stessa che a lavori terminati la carta venne esposta in diverse occasioni ottenendo numerosi riconoscimenti: Esposizione agricola industriale di Bologna del 1869, Esposizione agraria industriale e di Belle Arti di Forlì del 1871, Esposizione geografica Internazionale di Parigi del 1875, Esposizione universale di Parigi del 1878. La carta fu rilevata in luogo alla scala di 1:50000 e qui ridotta alla scala di 1:100000. Alcuni segni del tempo, ma complessivamente buon esemplare di questo monumento cartografico. mm 777x1155

        HAGOITA: SHUTTLECOCK [BAT] WITH HANE AND PLUM FLOWER. [A Color Shin-Hanga Japane

      [Japan ca.1880's]. Color woodblock print, very clean, nice impression, minor rubbing, with Zeshin Signature, Tairyukyo seal in read, 24.9 cm., 24 cm. FIRST AND ONLY EDITION *** *** A FAMOUS PRINT, EXPRESSING NEW YEARS'S IN JAPAN "HAGOITA" The "Hagoita" [Battledore or 'paddle'] is use in Japan during the New Year celebration in a game of "Shuttlecock" where a tiny "birdie" with feathers is batted back and forth between friends. WHO WAS SHIBATA ZESHIN 1807-1891: Was a superb and talented Shin-hanga painter and woodblock print designer. While his production of prints was very small when compared to his contemporaries, his high-quality and stunning composition was beyond most other artists of his time. Ernest Fenollosa was fascinated with Zeshin, and said about him: "The Japanese genius lay in the line of art objects featuring decoration and design." Zeshin also did a great number of the most superb lacquer ware designs, may inspired or tested in his woodblock prints. he remains one of the highest masters of all time, respected as one of the all time ten best from Japan. His stature continues unquestioned, and admired by museums and collectors throughout the world. His "Zen" simple designs reflect his keen ability to express simplicity which is essentially Japanese. Bar none he stands out in the artistic world. ABOUT THE SEAL: Per Henderson [2nd.entry below] he cites the artist's seal is Tairyukyo, no.36 in the seal index of his 1976 catalog.

        Heidi's Lehr- und Wander-Jahre. Eine Geschichte für Kinder und auch für Solche, welche die Kinder lieb haben. Von der Verfasserin von "Ein Blatt auf Vrony's Grab". [Together with:] Heidi kann brauchen, was es gelernt hat.

      Gotha: Friedrich Andreas Perthes, 1880-81 - 2 volumes, octavo. Original red cloth decorated in black and lettered in gilt, marbled edges, white glossy endpapers, volume II with decorative endpapers, marbled edges. Housed in a custom red quarter morocco slipcase and red cloth chemise. Vol I: spine faded, recased with ?new endpapers, a couple of spots to contents; vol. II: contemporary ownership inscription in ink on title-page. A little colour restoration to head of spine, hinges partly cracked but holding. An excellent set. First editions of both parts in the original German. Throughout the 1870s Johanna Spyri (1827&#150;1901) published stories for adults and children based around her reminiscences of growing up in rural Switzerland. But huge success came with the publication of Heidi, the most important Swiss contribution to children's literature after the "Swiss Family Robinson" of J. R. Wyss. As usual with Christmas books, the first book was published in December 1879 but dated the following year. Spyri wrote the novel in just four weeks. It was first published anonymously in German, and quickly became an international best-seller and has been translated into 50 languages (English in 1885 by Charles Tritten who later published the continuations "Heidi Grows Up" and "Heidi's Children"), sold 50 million copies, and inspired a whole series of films. Volume I was issued without the author's name on the title page but "Von der Verfasserin von 'Ein Blatt auf Vrony's Grab'" ("From the author of."); volume II is titled "Heidi kann gebrauchen, was es gelernt hat" and was published as part V of "Geschichten für Kinder und auch für Solche, welche die Kinder lieb haben", this time under Spyri's name. Perhaps because of the fragile paper used, the first editions of the two parts of Heidi are scarce. Doderer III, 447; Hürlimann 310; Seebass II, 1930 ("rare", vol. 2 only); Wegehaupt III, 3633 (vol. 2 only); Weilenmann 3216 & 3233. [Attributes: First Edition]

Presumed 1st edition (copyright page blank and undated but ca. early 1880s). 10-7/8" tall x 8-3/4" wide x 2" thick (quite heavy). Called for errata sheet bound in. 570 pages including Index, plus 4 pages (2 double-sided sheets) of ads. One plate is listed as being at page 551 and is actually bound in at 556. Laid in is a contemporary to the book newsletter printed on blue paper, 4 pages (large sheet folded once, printed both sides, entitled 'Land', which is an ad for 'A Journal for all interested in Landed and House Property', on the front page, an ad for 'The Livestock Journal and Fancier's Gazette' on the last page, and lists books published by this publisher on the middle two pages. It was not until the late 1800s that cattle breeds were developed specifically for dairy purposes. This book was an effort in the late 19th century to encourage local dairying by teaching the methods needed for raising dairy cattle and producing milk, butter and cheese, and doing so in a safe-for-consumption and standardized manner, instead of importing too much product. Also, in an effort to improve the quality of American dairy products and to make them more acceptable abroad, the Bureau of Animal Industry of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) established the Division of Agrostology and the Dairy Division in 1895, and used some of the information first made available in this book, including the effects of forage grasses on the flavor, odor, and quality of milk and milk products. The watercolor drawing on the left depicts different types of pasture grasses.; Color Illustrations; 10-7/8" x 8-3/4"; 570 incl. Index pages, 41, 44, 45, 46, 49, 60, F/NONE
