        The Aborigines of Central Australia . With a vocabulary of the dialect of the Alice Springs Natives

      Port Augusta: D. Drysdale, 1888. Octavo pamphlet, 32pp., very good in original printed wrappers, crimson quarter morocco folding case. Important notes on Alice Springs. Scarce pamphlet on the customs and language of the central Australian tribes by William Henry Willshire (1852-1925), a policeman implicated in the abuse and wilful murder of Aboriginal persons under his protection. Although Willshire's book makes for sometimes disturbing reading, it is still of particular significance as a very early attempt to record the traditions and language of the Aboriginal tribes around Alice Springs, which had its first European settlers in 1872. Willshire himself was posted there in 1881, and had the task of establishing the Native Police corps of central Australia in 1884. For all the book's flaws, that is, it is nonetheless a remarkably early (the earliest?) western account of the Aborigines of central Australia, and of note for its perspective on relations between the local tribes and settlers. Willshire's later career was marred by various criminal proceedings due to his increasingly violent tendencies and his cruel "dispersal" of Aborigines. He was denounced by the Hermannsburg missionaries after three chained prisoners were shot in the back while "escaping" from his custody, and in 1891 he was indicted for the murder of two sleeping men by Francis James Gillen, the eminent ethnologist then working on his great studies of the Aborigines of Central Australia. A long and controversial case ensued and Willshire was ultimately acquitted amidst overwhelming support from outback settlers who raised bail of £2000 by public subscription. As a rule, Willshire's published works reveal more of European attitudes than Aboriginal culture: 'Sometimes vivid, they reflected the settlers'ethos: containing some reasonable anecdotal ethnology and word lists, they are distinguished more for their sexual overtones, boastful sadism and racial triumphalism' (ADB). Although deeply saddening and distasteful, this pamphlet is a significant historical record of this violent chapter in Australia's history.

        American Woods, Exhibited by actual Specimens and with copius Explanatory Text PARTS 1, 2, and 3 ONLY

      Lowville, NY: Romeyn Beck Hough. Hard Cover. Very Good. Originally issued (with the help of Hough's daughter) in 14 volumes, we present here the first THREE VOLUMES ONLY. Each is complete, with all sample sheets and text description pamphlet present. Volume 1 is dated 1888, and contains 27 sample sheets. Volume 2 is dated 1891, and contains 26 sample sheets. Volume 3 is dated 1892 and contains 26 sample sheets. Wood samples in each are generally bright and clean with a very occasional crack in the samples, as normal (these are wafer thin sections suitable for viewing through a microscope or for viewing by holding up to the light). Each card contains a transverse, radial, and tangential section, in addition to the names of the wood samples. Each volume is housed in a green cloth slipcase, with an 3 sided inner sleeve and a text description for that volume in original paper wraps. All three slipcases are quite worn, with minor insect damage. The closing hasp is lacking on volumes one and three. The spine panel of the inner sleeve for volume 2 is detached on one side. All three inner sleeves match their respective volumes. The text descriptions are all very good, noting spine loss to all three (still sound and usable). The slipcases could have new cloth attached to clean the set up if desired by the new owner. As is, the important part, the samples themselves, are in wonderful, clean shape noting the usual occasional cracks in the sample that are part and parcel of the manufacturing process. A useful reference work for those interested in identifying woods that in many cases are no longer available (furniture trade, antiques trade, natural history historians, etc). Hard Cover.

        L'amiral Baudin

      Paris: Librairie Plon, 1888. Small octavo, with seven folding maps: a fine copy in the original printed pale blue wrappers. In the original publisher's wrappers. First edition: a very scarce publication, by a French naval officer who sailed with the D'Entrecasteaux expedition in the 1790s. Admiral Charles Baudin played a role in the history of both Texas and Mexico: in 1838 he was sent by the government of King Louis Philippe in command of a blockading squadron to Mexico, 'accompanied by the king's third son, Prince Joinville. During the siege, known in Mexican history as the "Pastry War," all of the French provisions (including drinking water) were shipped from Havana. 'President Mirabeau B. Lamar sent Col. Barnard E. Bee to Veracruz to obtain Mexican recognition of Texas independence, but the Mexicans refused to see Bee, who consulted with Baudin and Joinville. Through the blockade of Veracruz, by engaging the military and depriving Mexico of import duties, its principal source of revenue, France impeded Mexico's attempts to reconquer its rebellious northeastern province, Texas, and avenge the Mexican defeat at the battle of San Jacinto. When negotiations failed to satisfy France's complaints, Baudin's squadron leveled the supposedly impregnable citadel of San Juan de Ullóa on November 27, 1838, earning Baudin international fame as the "hero of San Juan de Ullóa." During the bombardment of the citadel, Baudin's forces further disabled the Mexican army by capturing Gen. Mariano Arista (a future president) and wounding Gen. Antonio López de Santa Anna, whose leg had to be amputated. The Duke of Wellington proclaimed this victory to be the only known instance in history of a regularly fortified citadel's being taken solely by naval force. Accounts vary regarding the ultimate success of the mission, however, because Mexico expelled the French soon after Baudin's departure for Texas, where he became an honorary Galvestonian in May 1839… 'The role of Baudin in Texas history has been compared to that of the Marquis de Lafayette in the American Revolution, because Baudin and Lafayette personified France's aid to the young republics during their struggles for independence. After a distinguished career Baudin was promoted to admiral by Napoleon III only days before his death, on June 7, 1854.' (The Handbook of Texas, online version).

A good set. This is the 100th edition, the first illustrated by the photographs of P. H. Emerson. Born in Cuba, Peter Henry Emerson (1856 - 1936) spent his early childhood in America, coming to England for his education. He became a doctor in England but gave up this career in order to devote himself to writing and photography, having been an amateur since 1882. In reaction against the stagnant artificialities of conventional salon photography, Emerson founded the 'school' of naturalistic photography. He published seven photographically illustrated books of landscapes in limited editions with platinotypes or photo - etchings. (See Gernsheim, History of Photography, pages 456 - 60). 'Emerson stressed the importance of natural settings and spontaneous poses, and opposed artificial studio setups or excessively contrived combination prints. He also advocated focusing sharply on the central object in a scene, with the other planes of the picture slightly out of focus... In 1885 Emerson exploded onto the photographic scene. With his pictures on display and winning prizes everywhere, he avidly engaged in writing, lecturing, and publishing to support and explain his theories, showing a talent for virulent diatribe against the opposition.'. (See Witkin and London, The Photograph Collector's Guide p. 130). HEAVY BOOKS WHICH WILL REQUIRE EXTRA POSTAGE. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE. FURTHER IMAGES ON REQUEST. POSTAGE AT COST. A heavy set which may require extra postage.

      . . Erste Ausgabe (1888 erschien eine veränderte u. erweiterte Fassung). - John Haswell (1812-1897) ist "als Begründer des österreichischen Lokomotivbaues anzusehen" (Matschoss). Er kam 1837 nach einer Ausbildung u.a. bei W. Fairbairn in Manchester nach Wien, um den Bau der Hauptwerkstätte der Wien-Raaber Eisenbahngesellschaft zu betreuen. Hieraus entwickelte sich die Maschinenfabrik, deren Leitung Haswell zwischen 1838 und 1882 innegehabt hat. "Neben vielfachen Verbesserungen an Kessel, Feuerbüchse und maschinellem Teil der Lokomotiven sind auf Haswell zurückzuführen: die Kompensationsachsen, der Massenausgleich, die Dampfüberhitzer, Rauchverzehrer usw." (Matschoss). - Das Album enthält systematische Skizzen aller unter Haswells Leitung bis 1873 erbauten Lokomotiven mit den grundlegenden technischen Daten. Haswell hebt im Vorwort u.a. die ersten Lokomotiven mit sechs bzw. acht gekuppelten Rädern, die Lokomotive "Duplex" (hebt durch Gegenkurbeln Seitenschwankungen auf) sowie die nach dem System Engerth erbaute Lokomotive "Steyerdorf" mit zehn gekuppelten Rädern hervor. - Tafel 14 in 2 Fassungen vorhanden. - Vorblatt mit Schenkungsvermerk "Erhalten vom ehemaligen Beamten der Lokomotivfabrik der Staatseisenbahngesellschaft Leopold Hlouschek...", von dem wohl auch verschiedene handschriftliche Eintragungen stammen.

Copperplate engraved map with woodblock color, 20 x 28 1/2 inches on sheet 20 1/2 x 29 inches, folding to 6 3/4 x 3 1/2 inches. Several small repaired worm holes, a few without repairs, light wear, overall clean and bright. A particularly appealing Meiji Japanese map of Tokyo, apparently geared to the tourist trade as well as to the Japanese visitor, with names of the districts marked on the map and the legend in both kanji and English. There is an unusual inset (6 x 8 1/2 inches) of Yokohama at upper left. The map is surrounded by small vignette scenes. Most interestingly, contained within the yellow border between the images and the map is the description (in Japanese) for a 4 day walking tour of Tokyo. To the right of the compass rose is a schedule for trains leaving from Ueno and Maibashi. The inset at lower left corner shows the train schedule Tokyo - Yokohama, and the price for each stage of the journey. The inset at the lower right corner is a listing of municipal and rural districts. Beneath the map at lower right is the publisher Koshodo, followed by the characters for copper engraving (dosen). A wealth of detailed information! The Imperial Palace is misspelled as 'Emperil Palace.' .
