Bond, George. A BRIEF ACCOUNT OF THE COLONY OF PORT-JACKSON,
8vo, Deluxe Limited Edition; pp. [vi], 42(last colophon); sewn & cased in original papered boards, with printed title-label and translucent dustwrapper.
Melbourne; Edition Renard; 2005.
***Deluxe Limited Edition of 75 copies within a total edition of 200 numbered copies, and now first published since about 1810. All the original editions are of great rarity. No copies of the 2nd or 3rd editions have been recorded and the first edition (Southampton, 1803) is extremely rare, while the 4th (Oxford, 1806), 5th (London, 1809), 5th (i.e. 6th, Cork, undated), and 6th (i.e. 7th, Dublin, also undated), editions are all very rare. The work is of considerable importance as one of the few accounts of Hunter's period as Governor. Hunter was dissatisfied with Bond's behaviour in the colony and complained of him in dispatches. Hunter was instructed to return him to England and Bond left the colony under a cloud in 1800, but his narrative was evidently very popular. He gives an account of the operation of the convict system and the economic corruption in the colony, and describes early efforts to encourage free settlers. He includes also comments on the Aborigines and on the natural history of the colony, including much from first-hand experience. See Ferguson 480; Wantrup, pp. 91-3.

London; John Churchill; [1846].
***Chambers had planned to respond to criticisms of his work by publishing a series of letters to the 'Times' followed by a pamphlet of a hundred or so pages, however Churchill convinced the anonymous author (through his friend Alexander Ireland) that it should be issued in book form, printed and bound similarly to the original. This was duly issued in 1845, and was followed by this slightly altered version in 1846. By then the fifth edition of 'Vestiges' was ready and the two works were often reviewed together, the publisher going so far as to suggest a combined volume, however his anonymous author pointed out that the arguments were already incorporated in the new edition.

London; T. Cadell & W. Davies; 1804.
***The superior issue with the natural history plates hand-coloured. Ferguson 390; Wantrup 21 (who gives only xviii pages of preliminaries). Lacking the final advertisement leaf which is not mentioned by Ferguson. Pages 289-312 (signatures PP, QQ & RR) are misnumbered 299-322 as usual, but the text is quite continuous and nothing is missing or duplicated. This apparently escaped Ferguson's notice. The plates for this work were engraved too large for the page size of the text with the result that in most bound copies the fore-margins are completely trimmed away (in both First and Second Editions).

FIRST CROSSING OF THE ANTARCTIC CIRCLE
Cook, Captain James. A VOYAGE TOWARDS THE SOUTH POLE AND ROUND THE WORLD.

London; W. Strahan & T. Cadell; [1784].
***First published in 1777, this is the last edition published in the same format as the first. This set has all the plate imprints present (these are often cropped); one plate only (XXXVIII) has the imprint just shaved. At the foot of the first page of the List of Plates (Page xxxvii) is a printed note regarding the plate of a plant used by the Tahitians to catch fish by intoxicating them (Plate XXIV); this note does not appear in the first edition. Cook's ship, the Resolution, accompanied by Furneaux in the Adventure, was the first to cross the Antarctic circle in January 1773. On the same voyage he circumnavigated the pole and subsequently crossed twice more, penetrating to 71 degrees S, further than anyone else for another 50 years, and possibly within sight of the Antarctic continent. This voyage in extremely difficult and dangerous conditions, was a monument to Cook's abilities as a seaman and commander - he lost only four men from a complement of 112 on the entire voyage - three through accidents and one from illness (not scurvy).

Cook, Captain James. A VOYAGE TO THE PACIFIC OCEAN.

London; Printed by H. Hughs; 1785.
***Without the folio Atlas, issued separately. See Holmes 47; Beddie 1553; Forbes 86. The "Defence of the Arguments ... " which is by William Wales, appears for the first time in this Third Edition which is in other respects closely similar to the second edition of the same year, reset from the first edition of the previous year, both sold out within days of publication. Forbes, whose collations are meticulous, makes no mention of the table of bank capital ("Corrected to the 5th of January, 1786") opposite page 286, and there seems no obvious reason for its inclusion, except for references to South Sea stock. The table is headed "(To face Page 286.)", but it seems likely that this is an accidental inclusion from another contemporary publication: it has clearly been present in this copy since its original collation. This edition, the last of the original quarto editions, is valuable for the addition of the "Defence ..." by William Wales.

The first issue contained a Dedication to Banks and Solander, which was suppressed after a small number of copies had been circulated, following the publication of an advertisement by Banks and Solander, disclaiming any responsibility for its publication. The dedication is not reproduced in this facsimile. This rare surreptitious account of Cook's First Voyage preceded Hawkesworth's official account by two years. It is the first published account of Cook's First Voyage and of his discovery of the Eastern Coast of Australia, which led to the Foundation of Australia eighteen years later. The authorship of the work is a matter of conjecture - it has been ascribed to JAMES MAGRA (or MATRA) and others, but the evidence is inconclusive.

***The third volume contains a detailed list of the fauna of Switzerland. Coxe's travels were first published in 1779 under the title "Sketches of the natural, civil and political state of Switzerland" and published under this new title, illustrated for the first time, in 1789. Formerly a curate at Denham, near Uxbridge, Coxe became tutor to the eldest son of the Duke of Marlborough, and two years later undertook his travels through Switzerland in the capacity of travelling tutor to the son of the Earl of Pembroke. Coxe is credited with being the first to apply notions of the "Picturesque" to Switzerland, and with being one of the first to write in such a way as to open the country up to touristic possibilities (see Abbey).

See Blanck 4434 for the first edition of 1840 which was issued in two bindings (no priority established) one similar to this copy. This issue is essentially a straight reprint of the first edition in Blanck's 'A' binding, only the date on title-page being amended, and with the addition of advertisements at the end. Blanck notes a true second edition of 1869 (Blanck 4471). This classic work of seafaring life has been reprinted in many forms and many languages over the ensuing period.

***First published in 1786 by S. Hooper and reissued as here in 1797, this must be a later issue by E. Jeffrey [or Jeffery] as the folding plan bears the imprint: 'Published by E. Jeffrey, Pall Mall, 1810' and the final page (verso of Page 71) carries a full-page advertisement for Edward Jeffery's re-issue of Grose and Astle's 'Antiquarian Repertory' - 'This Day was published ....'

Darwin, Charles. A MONOGRAPH ON THE FOSSIL LEPADIDAE,
Together in half calf, with marbled sides & early marbled wrappers bound in; a very good copy; very scarce.
London; Printed for the Palaeontographical Society; 1851-54.
***Freeman 342. A duplicate from the Bibliotheque Universitaire, Bordeaux, with stamp on title-pages, in the bottom margin of plates and in margins of a few text pages. The two parts were published as monographs in the Palaeontographical Society's series. The Index to Volume II is not present; it was apparently overlooked and was not published until 1858, when it appeared as a single leaf. The collation of this copy differs slightly from Freeman's in which no mention is made of the final leaf in Volume I, and which gives only pp. [iv] for the preliminaries to Volume II. As Freeman notes, a complete set of the Palaeontographical Society's monograph volumes appeared in facsimile in 1966, but Darwin's work was not available alone.

This is the final version of Darwin's text; he made no further alterations or additions to it despite the very many subsequent editions (a real gold mine for John Murray and later other publishers), Darwin having sold the copyright to Murray for 150.

Med. 8vo, two works in one volume; Origin: pp. [viii], 254(last blank), also numbered [441]-[694]; portrait frontispiece, the diagram reproduced in white on black at Page 51, index, glossary; Descent: pp. [iv], [viii](7 plates), 334, also numbered [151]-[484]; a few figures, index; original dark green cloth (slightly worn), titled on spine: DARWIN'S | SELECT [sic] | WORKS. [cf. Freeman] and, lower down, ORIGIN OF SPECIES | [rule] | DESCENT OF MAN; printed in double-column; a very good, sound copy; scarce.
New York; John B. Alden; 1886.
***Freeman 419 (Origin) [=962 Descent] (no detail given). The alternate pagination seems to be derived from an earlier issue in the Humboldt Library of Popular Science [New York, 1884] itself probably derived from an even earlier American issue (unidentified, but possibly Philadelphia c. 1872). The text of the 'Origin' is taken from the sixth edition, but the Historical Sketch is omitted. The text of the 'Descent' is from the first edition, which is perhaps suggestive that the c. 1872 Philadelphia printing is the original American edition in this form.

PROOF COPY INSCRIBED TO JOHN BECHERVAISE
Davis, John King. WITH THE "AURORA" IN THE ANTARCTIC 1911-1914.
Roy. 8vo, Proof Copy, preceding First Edition; pp. xvi(bound in different order), 178(see remarks below), [2](blank); several maps, plans & illustrations in text, full-page plan of "Aurora", 4 appendices, index; half calf; in very good condition.
London; Andrew Melrose, Ltd.; [1919].
***Inscribed on title-page to J. M. Bechervaise and signed by John K. Davis, 5 / Nov. 1958 "Sorry the book itself is out of print." This copy, evidently made up by the Author for presentation to John Bechervaise, consists of the sheets (page proofs) of the "Rough Proof Only" dated "5/1/17" (? 19) and "Revise 8 Aug 1919" (with various intermediate proof reader's approval dates), with numerous corrections by the Author and by proof reader(s), especially to the preliminaries. None of the plates nor the folding map are present. Pp. 19-22 and 177-178 are supplied (bound in) in later photocopy. Pp. 51-56, together with the index (pp. 179-183) are lacking, the index doubtless not yet having been produced at that time. We have supplied (loose) copies of these missing pages for the sake of completeness. A remarkable and interesting survival from the publishing history of a rare book.

12mo, First Edition; pp. xii, 274; contemporary full olive-green straight-grained morocco (spine slightly rubbed); a fine, most attractive copy; very rare.
London; Printed for C. Law [etc.]; 1797.
***General Dumouriez, then a captain of infantry, made a tour of Spain and Portugal in the years 1765 and 1766 by order of the Duke de Choiseul. His report, which displeased both Portuguese and the Spanish on account of its accuracy and bluntness, was published at Lausanne under the title "L'Etat present du royaume de Portugal en 1766", and is here published in English translation for the first time. A quarto edition was published at Hambourg, also in 1797. All editions are rare. The work is divided into four books: Book I, Geographical Description of Portugal; Book II, The Portuguese Colonies (including a substantial account of Brazil, although it seems to have escaped Borba de Moraes); Book III, The Army; Book IV, National Character and Government (including customs, architecture, summary history, the Lisbon earthquake, etc.).

Honolulu, Hawaii; Hawaiian Gazette Co., Ltd.; 1917.
***See Hill, Volume II, pages 143 and 414: "The Narrative of English missionary William Ellis is particularly important, as it was the first book written about the Hawaiian islands and the first serious notice of the islands since Captain Cook's discovery of them forty-eight years earlier. It may be called the first scientific book on Hawaii: although its main purpose was to report on mission progress, and Ellis was primarily interested in local manners and traditions, he was sufficiently expansive to include observations on such natural and cultural history topics as volcanoes, antiquities, and the anthropology of the islands." He includes an account of the death of Captain Cook from an eyewitness report of native Hawaiians. This edition is from the considerably enlarged second edition of 1827 (first published 1826) and includes material also from Ellis's Journal of 1825: "This combination constitutes the clearest, most accurate, and detailed account extant of the physical and social conditions existing in Hawaii in 1823." - Hill.

Erskine, John Elphinstone; Captain, R.N. A SHORT ACCOUNT OF THE LATE DISCOVERIES OF GOLD IN AUSTRALIA; With Notes of a Visit to the Gold District.
First Edition; pp. [ii], 102(last blank); folding map (partially hand-coloured) showing the location of the goldfields; contemporary calf-backed cloth boards, armorially stamped; (first four leaves slightly foxed; otherwise fine and clean); top edge gilt, others uncut; a very good copy; rare.
London; T. & W. Boone; 1851.
***Ferguson 9461 (collation inaccurate). With the bookplate of the noted historian, politician and collector, Sir William Stirling (and with a typewritten summary of his life loosely inserted). Erskine, better known for his "Journal of a Cruise among the Islands of the Western Pacific", visited Australia in 1851 and wrote this account of the discovery of gold in New South Wales on his passage back to England. He made a personal excursion to the new discoveries, or diggings, as he refers to them at Summer-hill Creek and the Turon River. His dated notes of this journey form the appendix to this volume which commences with a brief account of the earliest discoveries of the 1820s and earlier, and continues with a detailed account of the discoveries from the late 1840s onwards. The map is adapted from Mitchell's map and information from H.M.S. Acheron and drawn up by Captain John Lort Stokes for the Author. This was the first eyewitness account of the goldfields and is particularly rare in this first edition. A second edition was published in 1852; this is also of considerable rarity.

[Finden, William]. THE PORTS, HARBOURS, WATERING-PLACES, AND COAST SCENERY OF GREAT BRITAIN. Illustrated by Views taken on the Spot, by W. H. Bartlett; with Descriptions by William Beattie, M.D.
2 vols., 4to; Vol. I, pp. [iv], 190; frontispiece & engraved title-page with vignette and 64 very fine steel-engraved plates, 1 woodcut illust. in text, appendix; Vol. II, pp. [iv], 156(last blank); frontispiece & engraved title-page with vignette and 58 very fine steel-engraved plates; contemporary ornately gilt full hard-grained morocco (slight wear to foot of front joint to Vol. II); all edges gilt; a very fine, clean set; scarce in such condition.
London; George Virtue; 1842.
***This book was commenced by the Findens and first published in 1838 with a much smaller complement of plates. It is consequently usually known as Finden's Ports and Harbours: the title given on the additional engraved title-pages is "Finden's Views of the Ports, Harbours & Watering Places of Great Britain, Continued by W. H. Bartlett." The plates conform exactly to the lists given in the front of each volume, although a few plates are misplaced and all are delicately and beautifully hand-coloured. The book has been expertly oversewn and neatly recased in its original contemporary binding (which would probably have employed a gutta percha "perfect" binding - notorious for perishing), but there is no sign of any cleaning or washing. We can find no historical record of coloured copies, so this set has since been coloured, presumably at the time of sewing some time in the twentieth century. The colouring is carefully and beautifully executed to a high standard and makes for a most attractive book.

***Australiana Facsimile Editions, No. 37. 2150 sets were printed. The nine plates in the text volumes were drawn by WILLIAM WESTALL, landscape draughtsman on the "Investigator". The ten botanical plates in the atlas were drawn by FERDINAND BAUER, botanical draughtsman under ROBERT BROWN, naturalist to the voyage; these plates illustrate BROWN's "General Remarks, Geographical and Systematic, on the Botany of Terra Australis", 1814, and also the botanical Appendix to the "Voyage to Terra Australis". The Introduction contains a summary of earlier voyages to the Australasian Region, including an account of BLIGH's second voyage in the "Providence", in which FLINDERS served. The charts of the Australian Coast produced by Flinders were of high accuracy and were put to practical use for a long period.

***Number Six in the second numbered Miegunyah Press series: 1000 copies were printed. Using his letters and a probing biographical narrative, Frost builds up a picture of Matra, an important, but little-known figure in Australian history. An enigmatic American who sailed with Cook, Matra (who changed his name from Magra) was the first (in 1771) to have published a major book on the "Endeavour" voyage, and strove to found a colony in New South Wales for dispossessed American loyalists, only to end his days as Consul at Tangier.

(Carlton); The Miegunyah Press; (2003).
***Number 46 in the second numbered Miegunyah series; 1000 copies were printed. Globalization began much earlier than commonly realised. In the mid eighteenth century there was for the first time in human history sufficient knowledge of the world for people to conceive of it as a whole. British politicians did so with the purpose of creating a trans-Pacific trading empire and this book is a study of the resulting British maritime and imperial expansion in the Indian and Pacific oceans. It explores seaborne discovery, strategy in wartime, and the infrastructure necessary to support far-flung maritime activity, colonization and trade.

***The "Lady Nelson" was originally sent out to survey the unknown coasts of New Holland and was later chosen to accompany Matthew Flinders' on his circumnavigation of Australia. She accompanied him when he set off, but her slow sailing meant she was unable to keep up and was forced to turn back when she ran aground off the Queensland coast. The voyage included the first navigation of Bass Strait from West to East. The "Lady Nelson" was an experimental vessel, and her performance was of considerable interest to nautical science. Grant was given command rather than the designer Captain Schanck, as it was thought that the experiment would be given a fairer trial. The sliding keels did not, however, make the impact expected in spite of the advantage they presented for surveying in shallow waters.

London; Printed by S. Gosnell, for T. Chapman; 1799.
***Ferguson 301; Hill 2, 1894; . The first and preferred of two closely similar editions bearing the same date, this being of slightly larger format and printed on better quality paper. Another edition bearing the imprint "Printed for T. Chapman ... by T. Gillet" and with a completely different set of subscriber's names, was issued almost simultaneously (see Ferguson 302). The purpose of employing two printers appears to have been to ensure the speedy production of sufficient copies to meet the demand. This important work is the account of the first English missionary enterprise in the South Seas. The hostility of the natives at Tahiti and Tonga caused many of the missionaries to seek refuge at Sydney. Some of them settled in Australia "and founded families important in Australian history". William Wilson was Chief Mate on the voyage. Apart from its missionary interest the work contains much valuable information on Tahiti, Fiji and the Marquesas. The Duff Group in the Santa Cruz islands was newly discovered on this voyage.

***Ferguson 4549; Hill, p. 159; Wantrup 92a; Not in Abbey, though it clearly qualifies. The advertisements are similar in number and content to those noted by Wantrup for the first issue but with some minor variations as to placing, etc. Of the plates, 4 are lithographs of natural history subjects, 3 are wood engravings and the remaining 12 are fine aquatints by Harden S. Melville. This was an important voyage, undertaken to survey the north-eastern parts of Australia, Torres Strait and New Guinea. The Great Barrier Reef was surveyed in considerable detail and Jukes's observations on its natural history and geology are of great importance and were strongly supportive of Darwin's theory of coral reef formation. The Fly River in New Guinea was discovered on this expedition and there are important accounts of Timor, Dutch Java, Bali, Singapore & Malacca. The appendices include important papers on the languages of Torres Strait and the Oceanic peoples.

His conduct during and after the trial brought him before a professional tribunal and he was eventually debarred. He was elected as representative for Stoke on 14 Feb. 1875 and took his seat on the 18th. He moved for a Royal Commission into the conduct of the Tichborne trial on the 23rd and was defeated 433 votes to 1. He wrote an eight volume folio of a nine volume work on the Tichborne trials before his defeat at the 1880 elections and subsequent death." - National Library of Australia.

King, Phillip Parker. NARRATIVE OF A SURVEY OF THE INTERTROPICAL AND WESTERN COASTS OF AUSTRALIA.

London; John Murray; 1827.
***Ferguson 1130; Wantrup 84b; Abbey 573. Inserted before the half-title in Volume I is an unrelated 16-page publisher's catalogue from Longman, Rees, Orme, Brown, & Green, dated January 1827. This is the second issue of this work, as usually found, with the cancel title-pages. A very few copies were issued with the date 1826; these are of the greatest rarity. The work is of great importance: Phillip Parker King (the son of Governor Philip Gidley King) was born at Norfolk Island, and became one of Britain's leading hydrographers. His work considerably furthered the geographical knowledge of the Australian coasts. His charts were very accurate and his extensions and additions to those of Flinders on the Northern and Western coasts of Australia were for many years in practical use by the Admiralty (well into the twentieth century). He was made a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1824.
