    Annals of Horsemanship. Containing Accounts of Accidental Experiments, and Experimental Accidents, both successful and unsuccessful, communicated by various correspondents to Geoffrey Gambado .. Together with most instructive remarks thereon, and answers thereto, by that accomplished genius by GAMBADO, Geoffrey [William Henry BUNBURY]

    London: W. Dickinson, S. Hooper, J. Archer and R. White, 1791. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. London, W. Dickinson, S. Hooper, J. Archer and R. White, 1791. Small folio, xviii, 81, [1] (publisher's advertisements) pages plus 17 full-page engravings. Early half calf and marbled papered boards; leather worn at the extremities, with the front hinge cracked (but still firm); plates foxed and offset, with some text leaves foxed; overall a very good copy. The ownership signature 'Normanton' and an (earlier) armorial bookplate with the name scratched out are on the front pastedown. William Henry Bunbury (1750-1811), amateur artist and caricaturist; his designs 'must be admitted to be inferior in humour to Rowlandson's and in satire to Gillray's. Nevertheless, they are not without a good deal of grotesque drollery of the rough-and-ready kind in vogue' at the time (DNB).

    The Bookplate in Australia. Its Inspiration and Development by [Bookplates]. BARNETT, P. Neville

    Sydney: Tyrrell's Galleries, 1930. First Edition. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. Sydney, Tyrrell's Galleries, 1930. Octavo, 30 pages with 10 tipped-in bookplates. Quarter cloth and papered boards, with the printed paper label on the front cover; all edges uncut; a fine copy with the original textured glassine dustwrapper (now with minor restoration). The colophon, signed by Barnett, states that the book is 'Reprinted from the 1929 Year Book of the American Society of Bookplate Collectors and Designers'. In fact, the original printing was unillustrated. In the Book Collectors' Society of Australia 2009 publication on Barnett, the bibliography by Mark Ferson lists this item as Barnett's first separate publication on the bookplate. However, Ferson does not record a separately-paginated reprint of the ASBCD article, an inscribed and signed copy of which we have handled, which presumably predates this Tyrrell edition. Ferson notes a signed and numbered edition limited to 50 copies, as well as this unlimited edition, but does not record that there are two issues of the latter. The superior form is as described here; the standard form is in wrappers, unsigned. This copy comes from the collection of Edward Edgar Pescott (1872-1954), horticulturalist, naturalist, author and book-collector; his wattle-design bookplate is tipped in on the half-title. The page facing it is inscribed [by R.H. Croll] to 'E.E. Pescott with the good wishes of the friends gathered to wish him and Mrs Pescott bon voyage. Melbourne 9th March 1939'. The bookplate of the Field Naturalists Club of Victoria is tipped in on the same page. Tipped in on the front flyleaf is the 'Mutual Store' menu for the farewell dinner, signed by 17 guests, including Pescott, Croll, Charles Barrett, Crosbie Morrison, and Charles French. An autograph letter signed by Barnett, relating to the occasion, is also tipped in.

    Six Months in South Australia; with Some Account of Port Philip [sic] and Portland Bay, in Australia Felix; with Advice to Emigrants; to which is added a Monthly Calendar of Gardening and Agriculture. Adapted to the Climate and Seasons by JAMES, T. Horton

    London: J. Cross, 1838. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. London, J. Cross, 1838. Octavo, vi, [ii, errata, verso blank], 208, [4], 209-296 (last page blank), [4] (publisher's advertisements) pages plus a small (one page) plan of Victor Harbor and a folding frontispiece map of the Port Lincoln district (201 x 243 mm); both maps are dated January 1839. Original blind-patterned green cloth titled in gilt 'James's South Australia, Port Philip [sic], and Australia Felix. 1839' on the front cover; cloth very lightly marked and slightly rubbed at the extremities, with minimal wear to the corners and the foot of the (slightly sunned) spine; endpapers and the folding map offset and a little foxed, with occasional foxing elsewhere; a very good copy, uncut and with 30 leaves unopened. The small label of 'Henry Hooper, Bookseller, 13 Pall Mall East' is on the front pastedown. Ferguson 2525 (not noting the four-page insert or the small map); McLaren 10400 (basically copying Ferguson). The unnumbered four-page postscript after page 208 provides a summary of Adelaide newspapers 'received up to the 14th July'; in it, mention is made of Eyre's overlanding expedition from Port Phillip to Adelaide in 1838, during which he discovered and named Lake Hindmarsh. In the lengthy appendix, James 'prints the journals of several private expeditions undertaken in the early years of settlement, including an account of Hawdon's famous overlanding expedition as well as other expeditions to Encounter Bay, Lake Alexandrina and to the River Murray' (Wantrup). The 30-page 'Manual of Gardening', almost certainly compiled by the author, is engagingly specific: 'those lofty whirlwinds, so peculiar to the Plains of Cowandilla'; 'this province must become, some day or other, a wine country' and then refers the reader to Busby ... The flyleaf is signed 'Wm Molesworth', and legibly offset onto it is his armorial bookplate (no longer present in fact); on the rear pastedown is a light pencil sketch of a male head and shoulders; the list of errata has two extras added in pencil - all in all, a wonderful provenance. Sir William Molesworth (1810-55), the British politician, was 'returned as member of East Cornwall (December 1832) in the first reformed parliament.... [H]is especial province was colonial policy. He obtained a committee to inquire into the system of transportation in 1837, and wrote the report. He continued to attack the system, and contributed to its ultimate abandonment. In his colonial policy he accepted the theories of Edward Gibbon Wakefield ... He supported all measures for colonial self-government, and protested with his party against the coercive measures adopted by the whig ministry during the Canadian troubles, after championing Lord Durham's policy' (DNB). If his portrait attached to his entry in Wikipedia is anything to go by, the sketch in this copy may well be a self-portrait.

    Journals of Expeditions of Discovery into Central Australia, and Overland from Adelaide to King George's Sound in the Years 1840-1; sent by the Colonists of South Australia, with the Sanction and Support of the Government: including an Account of the Manners and Customs of the Aborigines and the State of their Relations with Europeans by EYRE, Edward John

    London: T. and W. Boone, 1845. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. London, T. and W. Boone, 1845 (first edition). Octavo, two volumes, [2] (inserted advertisement for Stokes, dated July 1845), xx, 448, 4 (inserted advertisements) pages plus 11 plates; and [4] (inserted advertisements for Siborne), vi, 512, 8 (inserted advertisements) pages with several tables (including a total of 6 pages comparing Aboriginal dialects) and 2 line illustrations (one, on page 364, not listed) plus 11 plates. There is a front endpocket in the first volume; it no longer contains the two folding maps, not listed in the contents, but required for completeness. They are extremely rare, and the later remainder issue of these volumes did not contain them. Original green ribbed cloth (with elaborately patterned blind-stamped sides and gilt-pictorial spines) lightly bumped at the extremities, and very slightly marked; spines sunned, with minimal wear at the ends and in a few spots along the rear joint of the second volume; top edges uncut (and now dusty), other edges only lightly trimmed; plates a little foxed and offset, with occasional light foxing elsewhere; leading edge of two adjacent leaves in the Appendix in Volume 1 slightly chipped (due to careless opening of unopened edges); an excellent set. Provenance: the contemporary signature 'R. Keppel Craven' is written in ink at the head of the first title page (presumably The Honorable Richard Keppel Craven, 1779-1851, British traveller, author, and long-time resident of Naples and Salerno). The blind-stamp of 'The Durdans, Roseberry, Epsom' appears on four leaves, suggesting it passed at some stage through the hands of Archibald Philip Primrose (1847-1929), the 5th Earl of Roseberry, British Prime Minister in 1894-95, and a big fan of Australia (see the 'Australian Dictionary of Biography'). The armorial bookplate of Novar of Raith (Sir Ronald Craufurd Munro Ferguson, Viscount Novar of Raith, 1860-1934), Governor-General of Australia from 1914 to 1920, is mounted on the pastedown of both volumes. For what it's worth, the first line of his entry in the 'Australian Dictionary of Biography' contains a typo, the first one we recall ever finding there.
