        Philips' New Series of Travelling Maps. Tasmania and New Guinea with Index

      London & Liverpool: George Philip & Son, circa, 1880. Folding map measuring 540 x 720 mm., printed in colour on original linen backing, 24 pp. index, a few marks and flecks; very good in original brown cloth case lettered in black and gilt, cloth case a bit stained and rubbed. Another well-preserved mid-nineteenth century travellers' map, this example with fine maps of Tasmania and, unusually, New Guinea, rich in detail with settlements both small and large, landscape features and new railway lines marked for the use of emigrants to Australia. The map is entirely as issued, housed within the publishers folding cloth case with an index of place names and co-ordinates to the inner flap of the front cover. In Printed Maps of Tasmania Tooley notes two maps titled Van Diemen's Land, but does not list this folding map titled 'Tasmania and New Guinea'. The colony was officially known as Tasmania from January of 1856, indicating the map was issued after this date; furthermore, the publisher's details list Philip's address at Fleet Street, premises occupied from 1856 onwards. The presence of the railway lines, notably the line from Hobart to Launceston, would effectively confirm a date sometime in the 1880s. This is further confirmed by the naming of "Emperor William's Land" on the north coast of New Guinea.

        Grammar of the Narrinyeri Tribe of Australian Aborigines

      Adelaide: E. Spiller, Government Printer, 1880. Octavo, 24 pages, a little creased and a few spots, especially early and late, tasteful modern bookplate; very good, printed paper wrapper, very slight rust to staples. A rare grammar of the Narrinyeri (now Ngarrindjeri), who inhabited the country on the shores of Encounter Bay and the lakes Alexandrina, Albert, and Coorong, extending along the Murray River in South Australia. The language is now listed as extinct. The work is written by the Reverend George Taplin, a Congregationalist minister who arrived in Adelaide in 1849. He opened a school in Port Elliot in 1854, and in 1859 he was appointed as teacher in the lower Murray districts by the Aborigines Friends Association. His accomplished and well-regarded work in philology borrows from earlier attempts by the Lutheran Missionary, the Reverend H.A.E. Meyer, but is more firmly based in his own lengthy study of the language. His work was widely adopted and used by his more famous successor, Lancelot Edward Threlkeld. He died of heart disease in 1879. First published in 1878, both editions of this work are uncommon.

        Phoenix Park in Dublin with Wellington Monument.

      Dublin, 1880 - Original 19th century Gouache with title in ink mounted separately. Dublin, c. 1880. 15 cm high x 19 cm wide. Excellent condition of this very accomplished and atmospheric work, capturing the full romance of the early 19th century Phoenix Park. The Wellington Monument (or more correctly the Wellington Testimonial; Irish: Teistiméireacht Wellington) is an obelisk located in the Phoenix Park, Dublin, Ireland. The testimonial is situated at the southeast end of the Park, overlooking Kilmainham and the River Liffey. The structure is 62 metres (203 ft) tall, making it the largest obelisk in Europe. The Wellington Testimonial was built to commemorate the victories of Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington. Wellington, an Irishman, also known as the 'Iron Duke', was born in Dublin. Originally planned to be located in Merrion Square, it was built in the Phoenix Park after opposition from the square's residents. The Testimonial was designed by the architect Sir Robert Smirke and the foundation stone was laid in 1817. However, in 1820 it ran out of construction funds and therefore remained unfinished until 18 June 1861 when it was opened to the public. There were also plans for a statue of Wellesley on horseback but the shortage of funds ruled that out. (Wikipedia) Phoenix Park (Irish: Páirc an Fhionnuisce) is an urban park in Dublin, Ireland, lying 2–4 km west of the city centre, north of the River Liffey. Its 11 km perimeter wall encloses 707 hectares (1,750 acres), one of the largest walled city parks in Europe. It includes large areas of grassland and tree-lined avenues, and since the seventeenth century has been home to a herd of wild Fallow deer. The English name comes from the Irish fionn uisce meaning "clear water". The Irish Government is lobbying UNESCO to have the park designated as a world heritage site. (Wikipedia) Gouache, also spelled guache, is a type of paint consisting of pigment, a binding agent (usually gum arabic), and sometimes added inert material, designed to be used in an opaque method. It also refers to paintings that use this opaque method. The name derives from the Italian guazzo. Gouache differs from watercolor in that the particles are larger, the ratio of pigment to water is much higher, and an additional, inert, white pigment such as chalk is also present. This makes gouache heavier and more opaque, with greater reflective qualities. (Wikipedia). Excellent condition of this very accomplished and atmospheric work, capturing the full romance of the early 19th century Phoenix Park.

        Moss Vale: The Sanitorium (sic) of the South, and its Surroundings

      Sydney: Mills, Pile and Gilchrist, Auctioneers, 1880. Quarto, 14pp., six plates and three folding plans, lower blank margin of one plan a little chipped and stained, wrappers spotted with heavy wear to the rear cover, a little water-staining affects some plates yet quite sound in a custom built red cloth folding case. A scarce early prospectus advertising land subdivisions in the Southern Highlands of New South Wales, with six lithographic plates of the region including Bong Bong Church, the first permanent church in the region, and the Fitzroy Falls. This publication includes three impressive folding plans: the first details residential subdivisions of the Moss Vale township, with some lots numbered by hand. The second plan features suburban lots adjacent to Whites Creek while the third promotes spacious villa sites at Bowral north of the Wingecarribee river. Each of the plans advertises an auction sale on site, and notes that a special train service departing from Sydney has been organised to convey purchasers to the sale free of charge. The descriptive text paints a glowing picture of the Southern Highlands, and is accompanied by six rather good lithographic plates depicting natural features and other attractions, including Fitzroy Falls, Mount Meryla and the eminent country estate of Throsby Park. We have been able to locate a single copy of this work, held by the State Library of New South Wales.

        Digging for Gold

      Australia: 1880 after sketches of, 1854. Oil painting, signed and dated; 950 x 560 mm, framed in cedar. M. Rare goldfields painting. A splendid goldfields painting. Surprisingly few paintings of the gold rushes survive - conditions on the diggings did not encourage the few artists there to carry the materials for academic painting. The visual record of the goldfields are almost exclusively confined to more portable drawings and watercolours, or to scenes printed by city publishers from sketched originals. In this instance the artist has produced a major oil painting from sketches made at the diggings. 'Digging for gold was executed in 1880…in this painting the artists's interest in pictorial accuracy has been supplanted by a literal interpretation. Stocqueler revisits the goldfields with analytical intent, and the significance of landscape and environment further overshadows that of the individual. This panoramic depiction…enables the viewer to witness the profound changes mining brought to the environment' (Karen Quinlan Gold and Civilization page 67). Edwin Stocqueler (1829-1895) was born in India and emigrated to Australia from England in the early 1850s. He was presumably lured to Victoria by the goldfields, but soon established himself as an artist, having apparently studied drawing in London. During much of the 1850s, he seems to have worked on dioramas - the nineteenth century equivalent of newsreels. According to the Bendigo Advertiser of 1 August, 1857, "Mr. Stocqueler is deserving of a rich reward for the perseverance and determination with which he has surmounted innumerable difficulties… [his diorama] reflects great credit on Mr. Stocqueler as an artist, and we trust he will meet with the patronage he merits". Although few of his paintings have survived, Stocqueler's paintings provide quite specific details of the Australian goldfields. He is later recorded as working in America and South Africa.

        North-West Exploration. Journal of Expedition from DeGrey to Port Darwin

      Perth: Richard Pether, Government Printer, 1880. Folio, 44 pp., eight sepia tone lithographed plates and a large folding map; a fine copy in original boards with printed titling label. Rare an important account of exploration in the remote north-west of Australia, including the discovery of the Ord River in the Kimberley region. This was the only major publication relating to Alexander Forrest's important expedition in the north-west: 'would grace any collection' (Australian Rare Books). Alexander Forrest (1849-1901) was a younger brother of the explorer and surveyor John Forrest and served on several of his expeditions. This book recounts Alexander's most important exploratory work and is remarkable for its eight fine lithographed plates and splendid folding map. Departing February 1879, the expedition followed the Fitzroy River almost 400 kilometres until progress was halted by the rugged King Leopold Range. Circumventing this obstacle revealed good new country named the Nicholson Plains and led the men to the Ord River, now the site of a major post-war irrigation project. After much further travelling, during which time rations and water were frequently short, the party arrived at Darwin in October of 1879. Australian Rare Books notes the 'uncharacteristically elaborate form' of Forrest's account, with a suite of eight fine plates unusual for a government publication: 'Indeed, it has every appearance of being published as much for public sale as for use by members of Parliament. Because of the less austere style of publication and the importance of the expedition itself, this volume is quite sought after by collectors and would grace any collection.' Given the importance of the expedition and rarity of its published account, this outstanding copy - preserved as issued in original boards - makes a most desirable addition to any collection of Australian inland exploration.

      Washington: Government Printing Office, 1880. First Edition. Wraps. Inscription a little light, but very clear. There is a vertical crease down the center of the pamphlet. Very Good. Printed green-gray wraps; 34 pages. SIGNED on the top margin of the front cover "With my Compliments/R. B. Hayes" by the President. Hayes covers much ground in this address beginning with the statement: "Continued opposition to the full and free enjoyment of the rights of citizenship, conferred upon the colored people by the recent amendments to the Constitution, still prevails in several of the late slaveholding States.... It is the desire of the good people of the whole country that sectionalism as a factor in our politics should disappear." Hayes also proposes reforming the civil service to eliminate corruption and expresses his wish to eradicate the evils of Mormon polygamy in Utah. He discusses foreign relations at some length and concludes with recommendations specific to Washington including its water supply, railroad depots, and the completion of the Washington Monument. Hayes is quite uncommon in signed books and pamphlets and when found are usually examples from his library rather than his own work.

        Die römische Campagna mit der Via Appia.

      1880. Öl über schwarzer Feder, auf Malpappe, rechts unten bezeichnet, datiert und signiert "Via Appia 23 April 1880 HThom(a)". 34,8:53,5 cm. Mit kleinen Retuschen. Provenienz: Sammlung Simon Ravenstein, Frankfurt a.M. Literatur: H. Thode, Thoma. Des Meisters Gemälde, Stuttgart/Leipzig, DVA, 1909, Abb. S. 156 unten.. In Begleitung seiner Frau Cella Thoma (1858-1901) und im Auftrag seines Sammlers und Förderers Charles Minoprio aus Liverpool, einem gebürtigen Frankfurter und wichtigster Mäzen Thomas in dieser Zeit, brach Thoma im März 1880 zu seiner zweiten Italienreise auf. Minoprio, der 1879 sein erstes Landschaftsbild von Thoma erworben hatte, hatte für sich und seine Freunde bei Thoma ca. zehn italienische Motive in Auftrag gegeben. Thoma begann nach Lehren als Lithograph und Anstreicher in Basel sowie als Uhrenschildmaler in Furtwangen, die er nicht beendete, autodidaktische Mal- und Zeichenstudien. 1859 studierte er an der Karlsruher Kunstakademie bei Ludwig Des Coudres (1820-1878) und Johann Wilhelm Schirmer (1807-1863). 1868 reiste er nach Aufenthalten in Basel und Düsseldorf mit Otto Scholderer (1834-1902) nach Paris. 1870-1877 lebte er in München, wo er mit dem Leibl-Kreis verkehrte. Sein erster Aufenthalt in Italien war 1874, ein zweiter 1880. 1876 zog er nach Frankfurt am Main. Nach sehr zögerlich einsetzendem Erfolg - seinen ersten größeren Auftrag hatte er 1882, 1890 seine erste erfolgreiche Sonderausstellung in München - führte seine steigende Bekanntheit 1898 zur Professur an der Karlsruher Kunstakademie und 1899 zum Direktorat der dortigen Kunsthalle.

      London: Cassell, Petter, Galpin, circa, 1880. Four volumes in two, large octavo; a good copy in contemporary half green morocco. This is a beautifully, if somewhat romantically, illustrated overview of the animal kingdom, using an idiosyncratic taxonomical system. The coloured plates include Adam naming the animals, a pastoral scene overflowing with rabbits and hares and a boudoir scene redolent of angora cats. Pictures of battling animals abound, interspersed with engravings of dissected creatures and skeletons used for comparative purposes - including the head of a chimpanzee compared to the regal bust of a Greek philosopher!

        Reminiscences of Rev. Wm. Ellery Channing, D.D

      Boston: Roberts Brothers. 1880. First Edition. 8vo; vi, 459pp; including index; original green gilt- stamped cloth, top & bottom of spine rubbed, some very small chips, outer hinges rubbed with a few small holes, brown coated endpapers a bit chipped, 2 x 1" piece missing from top right corner of front flyleaf, about very good.& Elizabeth Palmer Peabody admired William Ellery Channing (1780-1842) after hearing him preach in Salem as early as 1823. She became intimately acquainted with him when his daughter Mary entered her Brookline school. From that time on, through the 1830's, Channing introduced her to the world of the future Transcendentalists. She, in turn, served as Channing as editorial assistant, preparing his sermons for printing, and thereby expanding the impact Channing had on the development of American Unitarianism and Transcendentalism. & Channing was an independent thinker who was highly influential upon liberal religion, American literature, the anti-slavery cause, and Transcendentalism. & NAW calls Peabody's REMINISCENCES OF WILLIAM ELLERY CHANNING "a work of rare charm as well as a key document in New England Intellectual history." A number of letters from Channing to Peabody are given, as well as conversations between the two of them and between Channing and other liberal theologians and important literary authors.

        Photographic Carte de visite portrait of T.H. Huxley

      London Stereoscopic & Photographic Company, circa, 1880. Carte de visite measuring 94 x 60 mm, blank margins neatly trimmed (no loss of image) else fine. Veteran of the Rattlesnake, friend of Darwin. Engaging carte de visite of Professor Thomas Huxley, one of the pre-eminent naturalists of Victorian England who championed the evolutionary theory propounded by Charles Darwin throughout his professional career. Huxley is also an important figure in Australian natural history as he accompanied the government biologist John Macgillivray aboard the Rattlesnake scientific survey of 1846-50. This expedition, under the command of Captain Owen Stanley, travelled north along the coast of north Queensland and through the Barrier Reef before exploring coastal New Guinea and the Louisiade archipelago. During his time in Australian waters Huxley speculated on concepts related to biology and evolution, so much so that he became a stauch advocate and defender of Darwin upon returning to Britain.

        The Book of Household Management

      London: Ward, Lock & Co., 1880. Thick octavo, engraved and chromolithographic plates, numerous vignettes throughout; mild foxing, rebacked retaining portion of the original spine panel; a very good copy. With the appendix for recipes using Australian Meats. The great nineteenth-century encyclopaedia of cookery and domestic management, with new Australian content. This edition includes an interesting appendix prepared for the English housewife on the preparation of tinned and preserved meats imported from Australia (pages 1169-1174). Beeton believes them to be 'wholesome and cheap', and rails against the prejudice with which they first experienced in England: 'Cooks, as a rule, were rather inclines to snub the alien thrown into their midst; and servants generally were angry with appearance on their meals tables as their food. But happily this prejudice against a really, good, useful, economical food is dying - I may add, has died completely away.' These introductory comments are followed by 13 dishes for Australian meats, including a haricot and an 'Australian meat pie.'.

        Autograph letter signed to "Hamilton," mentioning Charles Darwin

      1880. <p>"Mr. Darwin Will Subscribe . . ."</p><p>Lubbock, John (1834-1914). Autograph letter signed to "Hamilton," mentioning Charles Darwin (1809-82). 2pp. High Elm, 21 February 1880. 180 x 113 mm. Light soiling along folds but very good.</p><p>From British scientist and banker John Lubbock, who made his name in scientific circles as a Darwinian anthropologist and archeologist. He is best remembered for having introduced the terms "Paleolithic" and "Neolithic" to describe the Old and New Stone Ages; these terms first appeared in his Pre-Historic Times (1865), the most influential archeological text of the nineteenth century. Lubbock was a close friend and neighbor of Darwin, having first met Darwin while still a child; he leased and then sold to Darwin the land on which Darwin made his famous "Sand Walk." In this brief letter Lubbock states that "Mr. Darwin will subscribe to the [West Kent] election funds" ("West Kent" added in red ink in another hand) and asks that "Mr. Charlton" forward the relevant papers.</p>
