        'Australian Contingent on their way to make History. Novr. 1914' (a large panoramic photograph of a detailed drawing - albeit an artist's impression - of this momentous event, signed in the image in the bottom right-hand corner 'H. Dalton Hall RN / Glenelg')

      The sepia-toned gelatin silver photograph (image size 200 x 557 mm) is behind a wood-veneer window mount (visible surface 379 x 689 mm) extensively captioned in white ink in a calligraphic hand with the names of the vessels in the fleet (46 by his reckoning). It is surrounded by a gilt fillet, behind glass, in the original wooden frame (external dimensions 527 x 832 mm); the original brown paper backing on the verso has been largely removed, but overall, it is a very impressive piece in fine condition throughout. Harold Dalton Hall (1881-1946) was 'a South Australian marine artist and model maker who worked in oil, watercolour, pen and ink. Harold joined the South Australian Navy and worked on the colonial naval vessel "Protector" as a cabin boy in 1894. While Dalton Hall undertook some training with Adelaide art teacher James Ashton, he was largely self taught' (South Australian Maritime Museum). The artwork commemorates the departure from Albany of the First Detachment of the Australian and New Zealand Imperial Expeditionary Forces 'which were later to become collectively known as the Anzacs. Merchant ships carrying troops from New Zealand, Queensland, New South Wales, Tasmania and Victoria departed from Albany on 1 November 1914, together with three cruisers HMA Ships "Melbourne" and "Sydney" and the HMS "Minotaur". They were joined at sea two days later by two ships carrying troops from South Australia and Western Australia, along with the Japanese cruiser, HIJMS "Ibuki"' (Albany Convoy Commemorative Event). Only about a third of the convoy, carrying almost 30,000 men and 8000 horses, is visible in Hall's unrealistic depiction of the scene, but the value of this piece - surely a relatively expensive production in its time - lies much more in the light it throws on the contemporary treatment of such a significant current event.

        GIORNALE PER I BAMBINI. Direttore: Ferdinando Martini (in seguito Carlo Collodi).

      Roma, Tip. Bencini/Bodoniana, 1881-1883. In-4 p. (mm. 313x224), 3 voll., legatura in tela edit. figurata: blu, beige e rossa (con aloni, risg. rifatti), pp. (4),416; (2),848,(4); (6),848; molto ben illustrati da xilografie nel t. e con qualche tavola a colori applic. alla pag. in un volume (1882). In questo celebre e fortunato periodico per l'infanzia, diretto con formula nuova e anticonformista da Ferdinando Martini, è contenuta l'edizione pre-originale di "Pinocchio", apparsa a puntate a partire dal n. 1 (Anno I), 7 luglio 1881 e conclusasi con il n. 4 (Anno III), 25 gennaio 1883. Il romanzo sarebbe stato poi pubblicato da Paggi a Firenze, nel 1883, in un volume illustrato da Enrico Mazzanti. La prima parte, con il titolo "La storia di un burattino", ebbe quindi inizio nel primo numero del giornale e continuò fino al n. 17 del 27 ottobre 1881. La seconda, con il titolo "Le avventure di Pinocchio", riprese solo il 16 febbraio 1882 (n. 7) e fu portata a termine il 25 gennaio 1883 (n. 4). Le puntate del romanzo compaiono su 26 numeri del giornalino, i.e: 1, 2, 5, 7, 10, 11, 16, 17 (Anno I) - 7/12, 18/22, 47, 48, 50/52 (Anno II) - 3 e 4 (Anno III). Nell'anno III (1883), oltre alla fine di "Pinocchio", Collodi pubblicò il racconto “PIPI' o lo scimiottino color di rosa”, che apparve (in 5 capitoli) nei nn. 33 - 34 - 47 - 48 - 50. Si può sostenere che se non ci fosse stato il "Giornale per i Bambini", Collodi non avrebbe mai scritto l'immortale "bambinata", quello che è universalmente stimato il capolavoro della letteratura per l'infanzia di ogni paese e di ogni lingua. L'assoluta rarità di questa edizione è dovuta all'estrema deperibilità di un giornalino dato in lettura ai bambini. Cfr. Parenti “Rarità bibliografiche dell'Ottocento",I, p. 138-48 - Biaggioni "Pinocchio: cent'anni d'avventure illustrate", pp. 43-45: "La pubblicazione del testo di Collodi è accompagnata nel primo periodo di 8 puntate da immagini di repertorio tratte prevalentemente da pubblicazioni straniere per l'infanzia; mentre nelle puntate successive il materiale di repertorio è intercalato alle prime figure di Pinocchio realizzate espressamente da Ugo Fleres" - Pallottino "Storia dell'Illustr. italiana", p. 171: "Ugo Fleres (1857-1939) è il capostipite di quell'esercito di illustratori pinocchieschi che, indipendentemente dalle loro qualità, dall'incontro con "Pinocchio" finirannno per ricevere una sorta di 'aura', cosi' che nelle loro biografie verrà sempre premesso che 'illustrarono una edizione di "Pinocchio". Nel ns. esemplare: il 1881 ha la p. 375/376 ben restaur. per angolo infer. mancante (anche di testo) - il vol. del 1882 presenta qualche difetto (prima pag. del n. 1 restaur. per manc. dei margini ma non di testo; tracce d'uso; qualche alone) - il 1883 ha la p. 17/18 restaurata per manc. ai soli margini bianchi. A parte questi difetti, la raccolta è in buono stato di conservazione.

First edition in German, preceded by the English edition a year earlier. Schliemann's account of his excavations at Hissarlik/Troy. A shameless self-publicist, motivated more perhaps by his desire for glory than his love of historical truth, Schliemann has been criticised for the brutality of his methods, however Carl Blegen, director of the excavations at the site 1932-8, defended him from his anachronistic detractors; "Although there were some regrettable blunders, those criticisms are largely coloured by a comparison with modern techniques of digging; but it is only fair to remember that before 1876 very few persons, if anyone, yet really knew how excavations should properly be conducted. There was no science of archaeological investigation, and there was probably no other digger who was better than Schliemann in actual field work" (quoted in Rubalcaba and Cline, Digging for Troy, p.30) [Attributes: First Edition]

Inscribed by the author. 8vo. 22 by 17 cm. 16 pp., plus two illustrated plates, and wraps. Fanciful, humorous tale of flying. Gentle fun is poked at temperance, scientific ambition, and human foibles in general. With press notices pasted onto the rear of the front wrap, and short snippets of reviews of a prior work by Putnam. While this work may well have been self-published, it is a mystery how not a single copy found its way into an institutional collection, if that is indeed the case. Moderate wear to wraps.

        To the Central African Lakes and Back:

      London: Sampson Low, Marston, Searle, & Rivington,, 1881. The Narrative of the Royal Geographical Society's East Central African Expedition, 1878–80. With a Short Biographical Notice of the Late Mr. Keith Johnston. 2 volumes, octavo. Original diagonal-ribbed brown cloth, spines lettered and decorated in gilt and black, titles and decoration to front covers in black, publisher's device and single rules to rear covers in black, green floral endpapers, edges untrimmed. Mounted photographic frontispiece to each volume, 2 folding maps. Monogrammed book label of travel collector Humphrey Winterton to front pastedowns. Library blind stamp to front free endpaper of vol. 1. Spines rolled and very slightly darkened, extremities lightly bumped and rubbed, small marking to top edge of vol. 1 front board, light foxing to page-edges, the very occasional marginal spot or mark, endpapers rather oxidised, a few small spots to margins of frontispieces and to title page, remains an excellent copy. First edition of this classic account of one of the most successful British expeditions to Africa in the 19th century. Thomson, months after graduating from Edinburgh University, was in 1878 appointed geologist and naturalist to a Royal Geographical Society expedition under the command of Alexander Johnston, with the aim of opening up a route from Dar es Salaam to lakes Nyasa and Tanganyika. When Johnston died a month after setting out, Thomson found himself in charge together with James Chuma, a Presbyterian-trained Yao who had worked with Livingstone, and continued "across the Rufiji to Ifakara and on through the countries of the Hehe and the Bena into the Kipengere Mountains. Finally, his body racked with fever, Thomson plunged into the northern waters of Lake Nyasa on 22 September 1879. Thomson next examined the unexplored plateau separating lakes Nyasa and Tanganyika, becoming the first European to traverse its 250 miles of mountain and valley … He could have returned home with honour. Instead … he continued northward along the western shores of Lake Tanganyika … On Christmas day 1879 Thomson finally reached the Lukuga River and found it unmistakably flowing swiftly west, and thus emptying, not filling, Lake Tanganyika. His epic journey continued across the lake to Ujiji, then back to the Lukuga River, and then westward towards the headwaters of the Zaïre River [before diverting to] Lake Rukwa, which he was the first European to see" (ODNB), reaching Bagamoyo the coast on 10 July. "Thomson had trekked 3000 miles in the unusually short period of fourteen months. There had been no major fights, no defections, and no unnecessary loss of life. He had collected nearly 200 new species of flora (including a tree fern named after him) and 15 new species of lacustrine conchology (one named after him), and had made some general observations on geology, terrain, and cartography" (ibid.)

        1881 First Edition Telugu Language Bible - Rev. E. Unangst - Presentation Bible

      - First edition. Beautifully bound at The Foster Press, Madras, India. Madras is the capital city of the Indian state of Tamil Nadu (Madras, today, is also known as Chennai i). Located at the Coromandel Coast off the Bay of Bengal, it is a major commercial, cultural, economic and education center in South India. It is also known today as the "Cultural Capital of South India"/ There is a tiny contemporary 1881 pastedown in the bottom left corner of the back right endpaper: "Bound at the Foster Press, Madras." Translated into the Telugu Language. Madras; for the Madras Auxiliary Bible Society, 1881. Bound in custom full black calf with gilt presentation stamped to front covers. Unusual translation of the Bible into the Telugu language. Presented in custom binding to Rev. E. Unangst in 1882. Front cover stamped with message in gilt: "To the Rev. E. Unangst, D.D., on His 25th Year in India, From Those For Whom He Has Labored, Guntoor, 1st April 1888." Erias Unangst (1823-1903) was a Doctor of Divinity, Lutheran Minister, born in Easton, Pennsylvania, graduated from Pennsylvania College in Gettysburg. He worked 36 years as a missionary to Guntoor, India. Died in Hollidaysburg, PA. Rev. Unangst was fluent in Greek, Hebrew, and Telugu and worked on a thorough revision of The Holy Bible in Telugu. Erias Unangst, A Gettysburg College Graduate - Ordained and married in 1857, he depart for India with Adam Long. He remained there until 1871, when he returned to the United State briefly. He was awarded an honory doctorate (D.D.) at Wittenberg College in 1878, and remained in India until 1895. Sources clearly indicate that Unangst's thirty five years in India were well spent. He served alongside Adam Long for several years, but when Long left for Europe or passed away, Unangst was left in charge of all four stations in the Telugu region: Guntur, Palnad, Rajahmundry, and Samulcotta. Perhaps the most important work that Erias Unangst completed during his time in India was translation of the New Testament that was thereafter used in the mission field. He also composed various tracts and hymns, which he then translated into Telugu. This type of communication with the natives would certainly have been invaluable to the missionaries, allowing them to convert even greater numbers if Indians. In 1895, Unangst left India for the last time after 35 years of service there. Behind him, he left a legacy that may be considered unrivaled. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A collection of sixteen reports on vaccination, quarantine, disease and sanitation in Sydney.

      - Sydney, Govt printer 1881-84. Foolscap, together in modern cloth. Signs of use, a few short tears, a couple of plans with repairs, minor but for the plan of the Little Bay Sanatorium (with report 12 - a revised version of that with report 6) which is in pieces but all there. A modern binding but not a modern gathering: there is a contemporary handwritten list of contents at the front. This has every sign of being compiled by a body like the Board of Health. The Report of the Board on the small-pox epidemic has been extensively marked up and corrected by hand. Each of these is worth its own long maundering note, but. All these papers come in some way out of the small-pox outbreak of 1881-82 and you may not be surprised that it become political real fast. It was a debacle. First among the blameworthy were the Chinese, blamed for introducing the disease, then rightly came the officials, disorganisation, unreadiness and general incompetence top to bottom. The vaccination paper records the lengthy opinions of fifteen esteemed medicos and largely concerns small-pox - still the only vaccination there was. All but John Le Gay Brereton were in favour. He regarded vaccination an evil worse than disease. Sixteen pages on schools versus 66 pages on wood pavements may seem unbalanced until you read the board's report and the evidence and realise that given how many roads were paved with wood it's a wonder that anyone was alive - not swept away by yellow fever. Thank heaven for Australian hardwoods. The Fijian representative to the 1884 conference couldn't make it - the steamer bringing the invitation was placed in quarantine. (1) Compulsory Vaccination.
