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 (Southampton, 1803) edition 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.

***Bibliotheca Australiana No. 12. Not in Spence; Renard 159. This facsimile of the First Edition in English (London, Printed for J. Nourse, 1772) has been out of print for many years. This was the first French circumnavigation and resulted in the French claim to several of the islands of the South Pacific, including Tahiti, the New Hebrides, and the Solomon Islands. Several geographical features in the Pacific are named after Bougainville, as well as the tropical flowering vine Bougainvillea. The primary object of the voyage was to hand over to Spain the Malouines or Falkland Islands (which Bougainville had earlier, in 1763, made an unsuccessful attempt to colonise). He then passed through the Straits of Magellan and crossed the Pacific, visiting the Tuamotu Archipelago, Tahiti (of which there is a long description, including observations of the natives and a vocabulary), the Samoas, the New Hebrides and the Solomon, Louisiade and New Britain Archipelagoes. The expedition was one of the earliest to be organized in a scientific fashion; it included a naturalist and astronomer, and carried a chronometer, first used systematically by the French on this voyage.

Amsterdam; N. Israel; (1967).
***Bibliotheca Australiana Nos. 8-10. First published at Edinburgh, Printed by A. Donaldson, 1766-68. CALLANDER based his work on the notable French work by DE BROSSES (Histoire des Navigations aux Terres Australes, 2 vols., Paris, Durand, 1756, and the maps are taken directly from it. Included are accounts of the navigations of Amerigo Vespucci, de Gonneville, Magellan, de Saavedra, Francisco de Ulloa, Gaetan, de Mendoza, Drake, da Silva, Pedro Sarmiento, Fenton, Cavendish, de Quiros, Spilbergen, Le Maire, Schouten, Jacques l'Hermite, Pelsaert, Pool, Tasman, Narborough, Sharp, Cowley, Dampier, Vlaming, Funnell, Woodes Rogers, Frezier, Clipperton, Shelvocke, Roggewein, Lozier Bouvet, Anson, Byron, and many others. The work includes FULLER'S notes to Cavendish's voyage, and the final part of Volume III consists of - "Of the method of forming colonies in the Terra Australis, and the Advantages that may be expected to result to Great Britain, from such Establishments in that Hemisphere." This, no doubt, was inspired by the proposal for the colonisation of New Holland put forward by DE BROSSES in his work.

[Chambers, Robert]. EXPLANATIONS: A Sequel to "Vestiges of the Natural History of Creation." By the Author of that Work. Second Edition. London: John Churchill, Princes Street, Soho. M CCC XLVI.
Post 8vo, Second Edition; pp. viii, 206(last blank), 10(adv.); original cloth (marked); uncut; (name stamp on title-page; a few leaves mildly stained); a very good copy; rare.
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.

***An anonymous work, first published in 1844, which had an enormous influence on Charles Darwin and includes chapters on early man and the mental constitution of animals. This is the first so-called "People's Edition", issued originally in wrappers, and printed BEFORE the "Gentleman's" sixth edition (of larger format, in cloth, but identical in content), but issued after it to imply that it was a reprint of an already successful work. In the event the 5000 copies of the "People's Edition" sold briskly, while the "Gentleman's" edition of 1000 copies sold only slowly. LACKING signature E (pp. 49-64), evidently since publication.

[Clemens, Samuel Langhorne]. MARK TWAIN'S AUTOBIOGRAPHY. With an Introduction by Albert Bigelow Paine.
2 vols., roy. 8vo, First Edition; Vol. I, pp. xvi, 370(last 2 blank); Vol. II, [viii], 370(last 3 blank); frontispiece & index to each vol.; top edges gilt, others uncut; in the original navy-blue cloth, with gilt facsimile signature on both front covers; a nice set.
New York; Harper & Brothers; MCMXXIV [1924].
***Dictated by Clemens over several years with the stipulation that it not be published until after his death (he originally said until he had been dead "at least a hundred years"!). "As might be expected of anything which Mark Twain wrote, this autobiography is unlike any other ever written--as unconventional and unorthodox as its great author. Always, when the time came for him to go on with the dictation, he chose as his subject whatever was most interesting to him at the moment, regardless of chronological order. For he believed that a man's thoughts, not his outward acts are his true history, which alone reveal him completely. The resulting book is a stream of table-talk: anecdotes, humorous and serious; reminiscences of his mother, his daughter Susy, his boyhood days in Missouri; chronicles of his friendships with all manner of men, from General Grant and President Cleveland to his Irish coachman and the unfamed intimates of his vagabond youth; bold expressions of opinion on every sort of topic--all are here, full of the vigor and the humanity of their author, and forming an inexhaustible mine of entertainment, amusement, and delight." --publisher's blurb.

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 (often cropped) present, one plate only (XXXVIII) with the imprint just shaved. At the foot of the first page of the List of Plates (Page xxxvii) is a 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). [Spence 314 (1st Edn.); U.S.N. 23-5.6; Beddie 1229].

A complete collection of First Editions of the three voyages, of which the "long-delayed official account of the third voyage was so eagerly awaited by the public that it was sold out on the third day after publication ...." (Holmes). The third voyage is the first issue of the first edition of which Forbes (No. 62) says: "It is in fact one of the most important English books published in the last quarter of the eighteenth century."

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

London; Printed by H. Hughs; 1785.
***Without the folio Atlas, issued separately. This second edition, printed by Hughs rather than by Strahan has been entirely reset from the First Edition of the previous year, with the wording of the title-page altered and the addition of the medallions to the title-pages. It is, and was at the time, considered to be typographically superior to the First Edition. See Holmes 47; Beddie 1552; Forbes 85.

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.

***Bibliotheca Australiana No. 14. This edition Beddie 701; see Holmes 3, Beddie 694, for original edition. 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).

***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.

Freeman's commentary (page 36) also suggests that the binding of his 17 is devoid of any identification of the series: "gives no indication, in gilt or blind, that the work is one of a series; in this case the edges are sprinkled whereas they are white in the series cases. It was again reprinted in the same series in 1852 and put out in the same case as the third issue [i.e. that referred to above], this time with changed date ...." This copy therefore may represent an unrecorded variant.

[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.

A MOST UNUSUAL COMBINED VOLUME - NOT IN FREEMAN
Darwin, Charles. JOURNAL OF RESEARCHES INTO THE NATURAL HISTORY AND GEOLOGY of the Countries Visited during the Voyage of H.M.S. Beagle Round the World, under the Command of Capt. Fitz Roy, R.N. By Charles Darwin, M.A., F.R.S.

London [and] Manchester; W. H. White & Co.; 1892.
***In addition to the full-page illustrations mentioned in the collation above, there are 11 text illustrations to Darwin's Journal and there is an illustration on each of the three title-pages (these are all dated 1892). A most unusual publisher's issue in one volume of three quite unrelated works, the second being Nathaniel Hawthorne's novel The Scarlet Letter and the third being Sir John Kincaid's (factual) Adventures in the Rifle Brigade in the Peninsula, France, and the Netherlands. Darwin's Journal is Freeman 73 but he does not record this combined issue.

This volume however has a variant binding, and the three-quarter portrait of Darwin in the regular series has been replaced by a portrait of Darwin standing from the painting by Sir J. Collier in the National Portrait Gallery. We hazard a guess that this is a somewhat later publication (concurring with Freeman). The biographical introduction is by G. T. Bettany.

Oxford; Oxford University Press; (1996).
***The World's Classics series edition of this work was first published in 1902 by Grant Richards, being a reprint of the Second Edition of 1860, in which form it was variously reissued (by Oxford University Press from 1907) until 1951 when the edition used was changed to the Sixth, with a Preface by Sir Gavin de Beer, in which form it was several times reprinted. Here however, the edition from which the text is taken has reverted to the Second Edition, which is of particular interest as it represents Darwin's initial response to the storm of controversy aroused by the work's first publication. The bibliography, chronology, and Beer's Introduction are also valuable additions to this edition.

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.

Dumouriez, [Charles Francois Du Perier]. AN ACCOUNT OF PORTUGAL, as it appeared in 1766 to Dumouriez; since a Celebrated General in the French Army. Printed at Lausanne in 1775. London: Printed for C. Law, Ave-Maria Lane; J. Debrett, Piccadilly; and Elph. Balfour, Edinburgh.
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.).

Melbourne; Melbourne University Press; 1994.
***Number 16 in the fine series of books published under the Miegunyah Press imprint and a superb and interesting production. The French explorer, Marion Dufresne has been largely neglected by French, English and Australian writers alike, but he reached Tasmania before the English and his expedition was the first to encounter the Tasmanian Aborigines and amongst the earliest of the European visitors to New Zealand. His life is remarkable for its high adventure and the parallels with the life of the great English navigator, James Cook. He played a part in the rescue from Scotland of Bonnie Prince Charlie, made numerous voyages to the East, including amongst his discoveries the most westerly islands of the Indian Ocean. Like Cook, he was a brilliant mariner who learned his craft in merchant shipping before joining the French Royal Navy, was involved in scientific efforts to observe the transit of Venus, and perished (in New Zealand) at the hands of Polynesian natives. This excellent and well-produced biography fills a glaring gap in the exploration literature and we recommend it highly. Only 1000 copies were printed and it was soon out-of-print.

Ellis, William. The Advertiser Historical Series No. 2. NARRATIVE OF A TOUR THROUGH HAWAII,
Pp. [ii](blank), 480; portrait frontispiece, 2 folding maps, 14 illustrations (mostly full-page), facsimile signature, appendix on the Hawaiian language; original cloth, gilt; (covers a little flecked; a very good copy; scarce.
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.
