        Osprey (fishing for nested young).

      Original Watercolor [c1880-1900], Great Britain - Fine original watercolor on rag paper. (25.4 x 17.7 cm). Matted in Rag. Condition: Fine, with minor aged paper remains to verso corners from previous mount watermarked 1902. Pathos notwithstanding and made all the more alluring by want of attribution, this vivid watercolor scene (Osprey capturing fish for its nested young) was envisioned and thus executed not by a professional artist, field naturalist or explorer but by an amateur, or armchair, traveler/naturalist /painter. The drama evident yet depiction gentle, this watercolor quite plausibly was painted by a young Victorian gentlewoman who would have learned the art of nature painting, as was the custom, and who would have sought inspiration from the grand natural history color plate volumes of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. This bold and vivid naturalists' display of a tapestry of dappled foliage or the crystalline translucence of disturbed water or the splendid reticulated plumage is clearly stylized by a primitive eye, yet executed with an accomplished and refined hand; the technique is learned. The resulting composition is one of dramatic charm.

        Old and New London

      London: Cassell, Petter & Galpin,, c. 1880. A narrative of its history, its people and its places. Illustrated with numerous engravings from the most authentic sources. 6 volumes, quarto (262 × 190 mm). Contemporary red full morocco, titles gilt direct, gilt in compartments, triple rules to board edges, inner dentelles and all edges gilt, marbled endpapers. Frontispieces and black and white illustrations throughout. Spines very faintly darkened, occasional light scuffing to boards. A finely bound set in excellent condition. A frequent contributor to Household Words, Thornbury was one of the group, including G. A. Sala and Percy Fitzgerald, who were popularly referred to as Dickens's "young men". Of a rather ghoulish turn of mind, many of Thornbury's pieces in his "Old Stories, retold" series tended to concentrate on crime and retribution and Dickens became concerned that he was "rather given to horrors". However he was also a great admirer of Thornbury's style, "For some years I have had so much pleasure in reading you, that I can honestly warrant myself "a good audience"' [quoted in ODNB]. Thornbury was troubled by mental illness, and died at only 48 at Camberwell House Lunatic Asylum of "exhaustion from acute mania" just after the publication of the second volume in this series. To complete the work the publishers chose Edward Walford, who had just edited Charles Knight's London. He later added two further volumes on Greater London which were similarly well-received. In Historians of London Rubinstein remarks that "for light bedside reading these books are admirable". With each volume weighing in at over 1.5kg, this comment is clearly intended to be taken stylistically rather than physically.

        The Unanimous Declaration of the Thirteen United States of America in Congress. [Benjamin Tyler-Giles Lithograph printing of the Declaration of Independence]

      Durham and New York: The Giles Lithographic and Liberty Printing Co. for Mess. W. Duke, Sons & Company, 1880. Broadside. Very Good. Lithographic print on parchment. Approximately 20.5" x 27". Original metal trim still present at top and bottom. Minor edge wear. Three professionally repaired short marginal tears. Small wrinkles at lower margin. This print of the Declaration of Independence is of the famous facsimile originally published by Benjamin Owen Tyler, a self-taught calligrapher, in 1818. Tyler's documents were the first to produce the Declaration in script and included amazing facsimile signatures of the signers. "The publisher designed and executed the ornamental writing, and has been particular to copy the Facsimiles exact, and has also observed the same punctuation, and copied every Capital as in the original. . . . [The signatures] are curiously exact imitations, so much so that it would be difficult if not impossible for the closest scrutiny to distinguish them . . . from the original." (Bidwell, 1989) Tyler's documents are among the most sought after printings of the Declaration and over the last ten years have sold for between $7,500 and $35,000. As noted by Bidwell, the Giles lithographs are the only exact reproductions of Tyler's work. These were produced as premiums for Duke tobacco products and could only be obtained by collecting certificates from 75 packets of Duke products. As such these lithographs are scarcer than the Tyler originals. As of 2014, no examples are listed in OCLC, and Bidwell only found one example at the New York Public Library as well as a photostat reproduction at the American Antiquarian Society. Between ABPC, AE, and Worthpoint, only two examples are shown as ever having been sold at auction; one for $1,024 in 2009 and one for $7,995 in 2011.

Darwin had used it before in the first edition of the Descent of Man in the previous year but it doesn't appear in The Origin of Species until 1872.

        Handbuch des Schachspiels

      Verlag von Veit & Co, Leipzig 1880 - xvi+704 pages with diagrams. Small quarto (10 1/2" x 7") bound in 3/4 black cloth with marbled boards and label to spine. (Bibliotheca Van der Linde-Niemeijeriana: 712) Sixth edition. Handbuch des Schachspiels (Handbook of Chess, often simply called the Handbuch) is a chess book, first published in 1843 by Tassilo von Heydebrand und der Lasa. It was one of the most important opening references for many decades. The Handbuch had been the project of Paul Rudolf von Bilguer, who was with von der Lasa a member of the Berlin Chess Club and the influential group of chess masters later called the Berlin Pleiades. Bilguer died in 1840, with the work still in the early stages. Von der Lasa completed the project and saw it published, with his friend von Bilguer alone named as author. It contained comprehensive analyses of all opening variations then known, plus a section on the history and literature of chess. Von der Lasa prepared four further editions (1852, 1858, 1864, and 1874). The sixth edition (1880) was by Constantin Schwede; and the seventh edition (1891) was by Emil Schallopp, with the assistance of Louis Paulsen. Carl Schlechter, who had drawn a match for the World Championship with Emanuel Lasker in 1910, prepared the eighth and final edition. Published in eleven parts between 1912 and 1916, it totaled 1,040 pages and included contributions by Rudolf Spielmann, Siegbert Tarrasch, and Richard Teichmann. International Master William Hartston called it "a superb work, perhaps the last to encase successfully the whole of chess knowledge within a single volume." Condition: Rebound, spine label faded, boards rubbed, previous owner's gift inscription to title else a very good copy. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Settler's Hut

      1880. Watercolour, 43 x 65 cm. signed and dated 1880 lower right, mounted and framed. This lovely watercolour is probably of a valley in the Bathurst region of New South Wales as the artist Edward Combes lived at Glanmire from the 1860's. It captures the isolation of early Australian settlement showing the simple timber slab homestead and the family's activities around it. Edward Combes (1830 -1895) was an engineer, pastoralist, politician and painter. He arrived from Wilshire England in 1851 to join the gold rush at Ballarat and Bendigo. In 1854 he returned to Paris for two years training in scientific engineering and studied water colour drawing. On his return to Australia a few years later he moved to New South Wales bought land and built {i Glanmire Hall} with his new English wife. By 1870 he was well known throughout this central western district of New South Wales and pursued interests in both politics and art. In 1878 he was the executive commissioner at the Paris International Exhibition followed by commissioner for NSW at the Melbourne International Exhibition. He was also a member of the Legislative Council and contributed significantly to the development of colonial public works and education policy. In 1879 he directed the art section of the Garden Palace Exhibition. The Bulletin, on the 23rd. April 1881 described him as the "best amateur painter in Sydney and the wonder is that the prosy engineer can find time to indulge in the "seraph ecstasy" of a pictorial ideal". His paintings were exhibited in London galleries and at the Paris salon and he was on the committee of the NSW Academy of Art and president of the Art Society of NSW where he also exhibited his work. Unusually, Combes did not seek recognition in Australia as a painter but was highly regarded in London and Paris, so perhaps his political and artistic leadership positions dictated this distinction. The Art Gallery of New South Wales which he helped to found and to direct for over twenty years received from him a single etching of one of his paintings. A portrait bust of this outstanding nineteenth century polymath by Simonetti is in the Gallery.
