        Maps to Accompany the Journal of the Elder Scientific Exploring Expedition, 1891-2

      Adelaide: Surveyor General's Office, 1891-, 1892. Two large folding lithographic maps housed within the original printed card covers, splendidly preserved in a custom-made quarter blue morocco bookform box. Splendid central desert charts. Two splendid large maps of the central desert, rich in geographical and geological detail. The maps were issued as part of first published report of the Elder Scientific Expedition of 1891, and cover the arid interior on the border of Western and South Australia.The expedition was privately funded by Sir Thomas Elder, who had earlier bankrolled the first great desert journey of Ernest Giles. It was led by surveyor general David Lindsay, a celebrated explorer of the Northern Territory. Lindsay took charge of the Elder Scientific Expedition with the stated intention of exploring the unknown interior of Western Australia between the routes laid out by Forrest in 1874 and Giles in 1875 'for the purpose of completing the exploration of Australia'. The expedition travelled 2,745 miles through unexplored country, mapping 80,000 square miles. Sadly, the men were besieged by internal conflict and all but one member of the scientific team resigned. This marked an abrupt end to Lindsay's career as an explorer.

        [Broadside]: Mrs. Carrie F. Young of Berkeley, Cal. Will Speak to the Citizens on the Subject: People's Party from a Woman's Standpoint and at 2 P. M. to the Ladies, Dates to be Announced on the Subject of Money-Famine, and Why

      S[an]. F[rancisco].: Cubery & Co., Printers. [1892]. First. Broadside. Printed on yellow paper. Approximately 12" x 18". Small tears and a few modest nicks mostly along the upper margin, with one longer tear, none of them affecting any text. The broadside provides a schedule of Young's lectures in various places in Northern California: Yreka, Chico, Briggs, Dunsmuir, Redding, Sissions (now Mount Shasta), and others. Printed on thin paper, very good and something of a surprising survivor. Carrie F. Young, a Berkeley resident, was a medical doctor and active lecturer on various subjects in California and the Pacific Northwest from around 1870 through the late 1890s. She was the editor of the Woman's Pacific Coast Journal from 1870-1872, and often lectured on physiological and health reform, and while embracing temperance, was apparently a sore disappointment to the more religious of the temperance crusaders who wished to count her among their membership without success. She was at least in one instance accused of links to spiritualism. She advocated for women's suffrage in her lectures as early as 1872. The People's Party was a reformist populist third party that enjoyed some successes in California in the second half of the 19th Century. OCLC locates a single copy, at UC Berkeley. .

      Two large folding lithographic maps housed within the original printed card covers, splendidly preserved in a custom-made quarter blue morocco bookform box. Splendid central desert charts. Two splendid large maps of the central desert, rich in geographical and geological detail. The maps were issued as part of first published report of the Elder Scientific Expedition of 1891, and cover the arid interior on the border of Western and South Australia.The expedition was privately funded by Sir Thomas Elder, who had earlier bankrolled the first great desert journey of Ernest Giles. It was led by surveyor general David Lindsay, a celebrated explorer of the Northern Territory. Lindsay took charge of the Elder Scientific Expedition with the stated intention of exploring the unknown interior of Western Australia between the routes laid out by Forrest in 1874 and Giles in 1875 'for the purpose of completing the exploration of Australia'. The expedition travelled 2,745 miles through unexplored country, mapping 80,000 square miles. Sadly, the men were besieged by internal conflict and all but one member of the scientific team resigned. This marked an abrupt end to Lindsay's career as an explorer.

      [1892]. Single leaf, folio (319 × 200 mm), 16 lines written on one side and four on the verso, with some deletions. Browning and a little chipping at edges, still in good condition. A working manuscript, beginning with a dialogue sketch from Catriona, the 1893 sequel to Kidnapped (1886). What follows are about 16 lines of unpublished poetry, in part: "I am come from a land of heath and driving rain / A rusty scornful land, and the folk therein / Brown and sharp in the face; and the wind forever blowing / Ancient stories of red venatius days." The lines bear similarities to Song 43 from Stevenson's posthumously published Songs of Travel. Provenance: Robert Louis Stevenson, auction of his library, Anderson Auction Company, 1914; purchased by Howard Goodhart, collector of incunabula; sent by him to Samuel M. Brickner, author of a poetic eulogy to Stevenson published in the New York Times in 1915.

        Travels Amongst the Great Andes of the Equator

      London: John Murray, 1892. 2nd Edition . Hardcover. Very Good/No Jacket. Edward Whymper. This is Volume I of this great classic. (Volume II is the Appendix of scientific data. A volume of maps was also published but this is rarely seen.) The boards are clean but dull with a few small marks. The spine is faded (see images). The f.f.e.p. has come adrift for the top half of its length but is still firmly in place. Leaf 447/448 (in the Index) has a crease across the bottom corner. Leaf 455/456 has come adrift for the bottom 1.25 inches of its length. The map in the corner pocket has crease tears as shown in the image. It is very brittle and needs careful handling when removing it from its pocket. Four of the panels have browned (see image) but otherwise it is very clean. The edges of the text block are grubby. There is a faint, previous owner's signature on the dark brown front end paper. Also on this page is a three-line, embossed address stamp. This is a presentation copy signed by Edward Whymper on the reverse of the f.e.p. The book is tightly bound and, internally, exceptionally clean and bright. The folded Plan of Quito facing page 167 is in fine condition with no tears. The folded map of the Province of Quito is also fine but has a 0.5 inch tear at the LH end of the horizontal fold.

Il regrette leur « silence réciproque » et lui donne de ses nouvelles. « Ici on trime (pour changer) ». Il dit l¿avoir regretté « pendant la Conférence », et lui affirme modestement que c¿est son correspondant qui aurait dû présenter l¿orchestre, avec le prestige de son nom. « Et je vous assure que tout le monde (civilisé bien sûr) l¿a senti ». Il lui annonce aussi qu¿il va se résoudre à voyager. « Je vais tenter malgré les difficultés de voyager de venir dans l¿est en Décembre. Je suis engagé (pour la 3e fois depuis 1940) à diriger à Chicago (Opus Americanum et Suite Française) fin nov. Et à la Philarmonique de N.Y. début Déc. Ainsi qu¿à C.B.S. J¿espère que je resterai vivant !! J¿emmène mon infirmière, cuisinière, chauffeur, secrétaire, collaboratrice, cousine et épouse et notre rejeton. Cela me donnera du courage ». En post-scriptum, il ajoute : « J¿ai le matériel du Carnaval d¿Aix. Ne pourrais-je le jouer au Standart Oil où ils sont si riches avec vous. Cela rappellerait Amsterdam et Haarlem. Je jouerais toujours aussi mal que E.R.S. ». Belle lettre.
