        The Cultivation of the Olive

      Hastings: J. Parsons, 1883. Octavo, 36 pp. (last blank), illustrated, limp cloth wrappers with printed titling label, as issued; fine copy. Olive oil production in the colony of South Australia. Scarce treatise on olive cultivation by John Harris Browne (1817-1904), a physician who accompanied Sturt to the interior in 1844-1845. Some credit the survival of the expedition to Browne's capability in arduous circumstances.Brown arrived in South Australia in 1840, and turned away from medicine towards pastoralism and agricultural projects. Much of the information in this booklet is drawn from practical colonial experience (for example, Browne notes that many of the common diseases of the Olive tree in Europe are absent in South Australia). He writes in the preface 'the following notes of the cultivation of the olive have been collected, chiefly from the most recent French and Italian books on the subject, and are printed on the hope that more knowledge of the great value so justly attached to that tree in Europe may induce my fellow Colonists to largely extend its cultivation to South Australia.'.

        Life on The Mississippi

      Boston: James R. Osgood, 1883 Illustrated with 316 images by John Harley, Edmund Henry Garrett, and A. B. Shute. First edition, first state, with the illustration of the author and an urn bearing his initials in flames on page 441, and with the caption "The St. Louis Hotel" on the illustration on page 443. Publisher's decorative brown cloth, with pictorial panels depicting the Mississippi River stamped in gilt to the front board and spine, decorative ruling and ornamentations stamped in black to the front board. About fine, with very minor rubbing to the extremities, bright spine, secure hinges, former owner's inscription to a front flyleaf, minor soiling to the rear endpapers, else fine. Overall, an extremely handsome and unsophisticated copy. BAL 3411. Life on the Mississippi is a semi-autobiographical text about the history of the Mississippi River and the author's adventures riding on a steamboat from St. Louis to New Orleans. While much of the information in this text is factual, many of the individual episodes were fabricated to varying degrees and are better considered tall tales than accurate documentation. For example, Twain provides an account of the origin of his pseudonym, which he claims he took from Captain Isaiah Sellers. While the explanation of "mark twain" as a riverman's phrase for water found to be two fathoms deep (12 feet) is undoubtedly correct, it is likely that the stories regarding Sellers are at least partially embellished. In addition to offering insight into the author's earlier life, Life on the Mississippi provides historical context on the industrialization of the United States in the second half of the 19th century; throughout the text, Twain discusses the competition of railroads along with the growing cities in the American Midwest and South.. Illus. by Harley, John; Garrett, Edmund Henry; Shute, A.B.. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Fine.

        Schweigen.

      Berlin, Verlag Gebrüder Paetel, 1883.. EA, 111 S., Kl.-8°, gold-, blind- u. schwarzgeprägtes grünes OLn.. Erste Ausgabe sowie Erste Einzelausgabe (WG² 38, Teitge 1137). Bevor Storm seine Werke in Buchform veröffentlichte, ließ er sie fast immer in Zeitschriften, Zeitungen oder den damals so beliebten Wochen- oder Monatsheften erscheinen. Außerdem erhöhte Storm seine Finanzen damit, dass er seine Novellen zeitgleich oder in zeitlicher Nähe einmal einzeln und zusätzlich mit anderen Werken herausgab. Diese Novelle wurde im selben Jahr erstmals in der Deutschen Rundschau Nr. 35, S. 161 - 202 abgedruckt. Vermutlich zeitgleich mit der vorliegenden Ausgabe, jedenfalls auch 1883, erschien die Novelle zusammen mit "Hans und Heinz Kirch" in dem Band "Zwei Novellen" bei Paetel. Diese Vater-Sohn-Novelle war ebenfalls 1883 herausgekommen (s. WG² 37 u. Teitge 564/565). Der vorliegende grüne Originaleinband ist reichlich mit Gold und Schwarz sowie auch in Blinddruck geprägt worden, hat dazu rundum Goldschnitt und ein Lesebändchen. Einbandkanten nur minimal berieben, Rückdeckel mit Fleckchen, gegenüber dem Innentitel kurzer Name (sonst keine weiteren Eintragungen), diese Seite u. Innentitel gebräunt, ebenso beide Nachsatzseiten, Textseiten sauber, fleckenfrei und bemerkenswert frisch erhalten. Schöne und dekorative Ausgabe. >>> Von großer Seltenheit! <<<

"Engraved by J. & C. Walker"- lower right margin. Great Lakes Surveys, 1815-25 background info. While Capt. Owen and Lt. Vidal completed a reconnaissance survey from Lake Ontario to Georgian Bay in the summer of 1815, Bayfield and his assistant Midshipman P.C. Collins, R.N., worked in the region of the Bay of Quinte. During the winter and summer of 1816 Bayfield assisted Capt. Owen with his surveys in the Niagara River and its headwaters in Buffalo, N.Y. With the completion of the Detroit River survey in 1816, Capt. Owen returned to England to compile his charts and left Lieut. Bayfield in temporary charge of the Great Lakes Survey.In June 1817 while working in Lake Erie, Bayfield was appointed Admiralty Surveyor for the Great Lakes, and it was from this date until 1856 that he made his greatest contributions to the history of Admiralty charting. Surveys in Lake Erie and the St. Clair River were completed by 1819, those for Lake Huron, Georgian Bay and the North Channel by 1822, and those for Lake Superior by 1825. Only in the last two season of his work was Bayfield able to charter a schooner in Lake Superior. Surveys in other seasons were carried out in sailing gigs powered by oars. Soundings along the coasts were made in summer, and the land surveys in winter while living in tents. While in Georgian Bay, Bayfield made the naval base at Penetanguishene his headquarters, and while in Lake Superior, Fort William. In May 1825, at Fort William, Bayfield met Commander John Franklin and his surveyor Lieut. George Back with a party of 33 men bound for the Western Arctic. The survey of Lake Superior was ended in the fall of 1825 and Bayfield with Collins returned to England to compile their charts for the Great Lakes. The first of these charts was published by the Admiralty in September 1828. quoted from Great Lakes Maps on line.

        Residence & Ranch of Theo. Todd, Upper Ojai Valley, Ventura County, Cal.

      Oakland, 1883 This dual picture hand-colored lithograph "Residence & Ranch of Theo. Todd, Upper Ojai Valley, Ventura County, Cal." measures 8.5" x 11.75" and is in very good condition with faint foxing. This finely colored and expertly detailed lithograph shows the ranch and residence of Theodore Todd and Ojai Valley. Illustrated are numerous horses on the ranch as well as cattle and chickens within the different yards. Crops growing to the right and behind the house are also richly colored and the house, with the small vineyard growing in front, is finely detailed. Visitors on horse and carriage are seen coming to and from the ranch.Thomas H. Thompson, formerly Captain Thomas, began his career preparing maps and atlases of Illinois and Iowa counties. At various times of his life he was in partnership with several different men, two of them, Louis Everts and Alfred Andreas, were old acquaintances from his army days. In 1870 Thompson and Everts began publishing atlases, releasing in that year what they called ?combination atlas maps.? In the 1870 atlases, lithographic illustrations were placed at the rear of the volumes.After 1870 the illustrations were interleaved with township maps throughout the atlases. The atlases were sold by subscription by traveling salesmen. Thompson and Everts dissolved their partnership in the early 1870s and in 1875 Thompson migrated to California. There he published atlases of Northern California. In partnership with Albert West, he issued atlases of Santa Clara County (1875), Alameda County (1878) and Solano County (1878). All are illustrated with lithographic views and sketches similar to those in the atlases of mid-western counties with a splendid array of lithographed plates showing the farms, houses, and other features of the settlements of Alameda County.

        The Art of the Old English Potter, Illustrated with Fifty Etchings By the Author

      London: Bemrose and Sons, 1883. First Limited Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. Book. Elephant Folio - over 15. 214 pp. Limited signed edition, of which this is number 139 of 250, "with letters". (Signed by Bemrose & Sons.) Lovely etchings by Solon of urns, jugs, mugs, dishes, teapots, figurines, et. al. Some light foxing affecting some text pages and a few plates, but never is it disconcerting. Most pages are clean. Heavy fine paper stock used remains crisp and fresh generally. Yellow decorated cloth boars have some soilage and wear, with fraying in corners, and a few minor tears (one such at top of spine). Tear or crack along hinge of front endpaper. Still this manages to be a very good copy in my view. The book weighs almost 10 pounds and so expect there to be extra shipping add-on if you order through ABE.

        Turnix Dussumieri, Temm (Little Hemipode)

      London 1883 - This splendid hand-colored, folio-size lithograph, Turnix Dussumieri, Temm, from John Gould&#146;s (1804-1881) monumental book "Birds of Asia" (1850-1883) is in mint condition. Measuring 15" x 21.75", this lithograph displays the author&#146;s scientific skill and attention to detail. Commonly called Little Hemipodes, these birds are expertly hand-colored in shades of tan and brown with intricate patterning throughout their bodies and wings. John Gould was an English ornithologist, self-taught artist and naturalist. Gould first worked as a gardener under his father in the Royal Gardens of Windsor from 1818-1824, where he began his illustrations. He became an expert taxidermist, opening his own practice in London in 1824 and in 1827 he became the first Curator and Preserver at the museum of the Zoological Society of London. Through his work he was able to meet with the country&#146;s leading naturalists and view new collections of birds given to the Zoological Society. His interest in birds was continually developing and in 1830 he published his first volume on birds, &#147;A Century of Birds From the Himalaya Mountains.&#148; For the next fifty years, Gould, his wife and artists working with them traveled around Asia, the East Indies and Australia. His wife Elizabeth and other artists were able to transfer his sketches to stone; hand print and hand-color them. One of Gould's greatest achievements, the &#147;Birds of Asia&#148; was in production longer than any of his other work, taking thirty-four years for the appearance of its thirty-five parts. The ornithologist was fascinated by the diversity of the exotic, colorful species of Asia, and he conveyed his enchantment to viewers, creating one of his most monumental and magnificent sets. For the preparation of &#147;Birds of Asia&#148;, Gould&#146;s team of artists was joined by the German-born Josef Wolf, who, like Richter and Hart, would also become a long-term collaborator. The subjects of the plates are among the most varied of Gould's folios: trogons, kingfishers, sunbirds, woodpeckers, partridges, parrots, parakeets, pheasants, and many other genera are beautifully drawn, printed and colored. Gould placed many of the overwhelmingly vibrant, showy and elegant birds in settings appropriately lush and detailed. Perhaps more than in any of his other productions, he was careful to create an environment that was extensively delineated and highly accurate. In many of Gould's other books, the background was subtle or nonexistent, but he was clearly fascinated by the foliage and wildlife of Asia. The intended geographical range of the work was enormous and very much in keeping with the seemingly limitless ambition of the 19th century's most enterprising and prolific ornithologist. &#147;Birds of Asia&#148; was an overwhelming success, despite the great length of time over which it was produced. It was also a stunning feat in that, throughout the four decades of its production, the quality remained outstandingly high. The many noted subscribers included Queen Victoria, the Emperor of Austria, the kings of Hanover, Belgium, and Portugal, museums, universities, and institutions in cities worldwide.

        Inquiries into Human Faculty and its Development

      London : Macmillan and Co. 1883 - pp. xii, [2], 387; tissue-guarded sepia frontis, and four plates (plate iv in colour over two pages). Large octavo hardcover in publisher's deep mauve cloth with gilt lettering and device on spine; black end-papers. Armorial book plate of Thomas Herbert Lewin to front paste-down. Very good+ text block with good+ binding. Binding is secure with neat, square corners and light overall wear to cloth. Most significant flaws are the bumped spine ends with a few light frays to cloth at the head, and the spine fade with light blotches. Elsewhere, cloth has retained its colour, and still has that rich, deep mauve colour, and all lettering is clear. Inner and outer hinges also sturdy with no splits, but there are three pin-sized wormholes near outer front hinge. One of the wormholes extends through the inner margins of front matter, and through to inner margins of first twenty five leaves - no text affected, and the other two do not show through the board. Text block is sturdy with bright, near-crisp leaves, and foxing is light-to-very light and appears on title page, tissue guard, ffep and to upper and lower margins of colour plate - foxing also very minimal on frontis. All plates are present, and there are no inscriptions or annotations. A decent copy. [Attributes: First Edition]
