Octavo, a very good copy in the original blind-stamped and gilt lettered green cloth,a few inked marginalia, endpapers slightly spotted. A handsome copy of the complete edition of the journals of eight expeditions undertaken by the Gregory brothers in Western, Northern and Central Australia between 1846 and 1861. This was the first comprehensive publication of the Gregory journals, many of which had not been printed before in their entirety.The Gregory brothers played an important role in the history of exploration in Western Australia, and Augustus also led expeditions further afield into unmapped regions of the continent. In 1855, on Governor FitzRoy's recommendation, Augustus Gregory was selected by the British Government to lead the North Australian Exploring Expedition. The party of eighteen included his brother Henry as second-in-command, the botanist Ferdinand von Mueller, and the naturalist and artist Thomas Baines. Starting from the mouth of the Victoria River in August 1855, Gregory covered over five thousand miles in his sixteen-month expedition opening up vast areas for pastoral settlement. He was awarded the gold medal of the Royal Geographical Society on his return and is one of the greatest inland Australian explorers. In 1858 Gregory made one further expedition in search of Ludwig Leichhardt and his party, but was forced by drought to abandon the search. This book includes material related to the search. Australian Rare Books, 190a; Ferguson, 10075.

        HEIDI'S EARLY EXPERIENCES. And: HEIDI'S FURTHER EXPERIENCES

      1884. [the rare two-volume edition] A Story for Children and for Those Who Love Children. Illustrated. [In Two Volumes.] London: W. Swan Sonnenschein & Co., n.d. [1884]. Original dark green [Vol II lighter green] cloth pictorially decorated in black and gilt, all page edges gilt. First English Edition of this children's classic, made further famous by the 1937 film starring Shirley Temple. The Swiss author Johanna Spyri (née Heusser, 1827-1901) wrote children's tales as a way of recapturing her youth once she had married a lawyer and moved from the countryside to Zurich. (She wrote this one in just four weeks.) This London edition was published in the same year that the author's husband and only child died.~The original edition, in German, was published in 1880-1881; in 1882 or 1883, her German publisher did publish an English translation of the first volume -- now practically impossible to find. The American edition by Cupples Upham of Boston came out in 1885, two-volumes-in-one; since this London edition is quite rare, the Boston edition is the first generally-obtainable one today. (It has recently been discovered that there was an 1830 German book titled "Adelheide: das Mädchen vom Alpengebirge," with which Johanna Spyri had probably been familiar as a child -- and from which she apparently borrowed freely, five decades later.)~The binding for this tale is a beautiful pictorial one, showing on the front cover the five-year-old orphan Heidi being left by her Aunt Dete with her curmudgeonly grandfather, and on the spine Heidi with a goat. Oddly, both bindings read "Heidi's Early Experiences," even though that is not the title of the second volume -- probably a cost-saving measure by this minor London publisher (of German heritage) who specialized in books on sociology and politics.~These volumes are in bright, close-to-fine condition, with scarcely any soil or wear (a few leaves stand slightly proud, but both volumes are tight and secure, the original endpapers not even cracked; in Vol I there are occasional small rust-stains from the staples used to bind the book, as this title unfortunately came out during the brief unsuccessful experiment of using staples rather than string). This is the best copy to surface on the market in decades. Housed in a handsome morocco-backed slipcase with twin chemises.

      Brisbane: James C. Beal, Government Printer, 1884. Octavo, a very good copy in the original blind-stamped and gilt lettered green cloth,a few inked marginalia, endpapers slightly spotted. A handsome copy of the complete edition of the journals of eight expeditions undertaken by the Gregory brothers in Western, Northern and Central Australia between 1846 and 1861. This was the first comprehensive publication of the Gregory journals, many of which had not been printed before in their entirety.The Gregory brothers played an important role in the history of exploration in Western Australia, and Augustus also led expeditions further afield into unmapped regions of the continent. In 1855, on Governor FitzRoy's recommendation, Augustus Gregory was selected by the British Government to lead the North Australian Exploring Expedition. The party of eighteen included his brother Henry as second-in-command, the botanist Ferdinand von Mueller, and the naturalist and artist Thomas Baines. Starting from the mouth of the Victoria River in August 1855, Gregory covered over five thousand miles in his sixteen-month expedition opening up vast areas for pastoral settlement. He was awarded the gold medal of the Royal Geographical Society on his return and is one of the greatest inland Australian explorers. In 1858 Gregory made one further expedition in search of Ludwig Leichhardt and his party, but was forced by drought to abandon the search. This book includes material related to the search. Australian Rare Books, 190a; Ferguson, 10075.
