  • Hobart-town – Oder Sommerfrilche in den Antipoden (Or a Summer Holiday in the Antipodes) Ludwig Salvator von Toaskana, Archduke of Austria

    Hobart-town – Oder Sommerfrilche in den Antipoden (Or a Summer Holiday in the Antipodes) Ludwig Salvator von Toaskana, Archduke of Austria

    Published privately in Prague, printed by Mercy, 1886. Quarto sized 286 pages after preliminaries with 6 text xylographs (woodcuts). 23 (1 tri-folded) xylograph full page plates and 1 color lithographed map. Some mild browning to the paper, the covers whilst showing some wear are still very good and the whole item is complete and original. Extract from a previous booksellers’ catalogue stuck to pastedown along with a manuscript note contemporary with the book, in German, stating a limit of 400 books.

    First edition of this fine description of Hobart, Tasmania and, like all books of Ludwig Salvator very rare.

    Begins with a general history and covers climate (klima), geology, plants (pftanzan), animals, aboriginals (eingenborenen) … farming, trade, education etc. Interesting references made including Rev Spicer on Tasmanian Plants, Bonwick “Daily Life …”, Marcus Clarke, Fenton, Louisa Anne Meridith etc.

    Ludwig Salvator (1847 – 1915) was the grandson of Grand Duke Ferdinand III of Tuscany. He left Tuscany with his family in 1859, received legal training, and devoted himself to natural sciences and nautical interests. Later he took his residence in Majorca and traveled extensively in the Mediterranean, as well as overseas. Ludwig Salvator conducted extensive correspondences, including Jules Verne, who included him as the title figure of his novel Mathias Sandorf. As well as his estates on Majorca (now owned by Actor Michael Douglas) he owned substantial properties in Austria-Hungary, France, Spain and Egypt.

    The book contains many interesting views xylographed from original drawings by Count Eugene Storza, Chamberlain to the Duke. The tri-folding panorama of the “View looking South from Mount Romny” is rather special. The map shows Hobart and its surroundings and is based that of F.J. Evans.

    Rare Hobart collectable with unique illustrations of views.

  • Hobart – Eight Etchings in Facsimile

    Hobart – Eight Etchings in Facsimile

    A scarce little landscape booklet issued by Walch & Sons, Hobart in 1932.

    With a forward by L. Dechaineux of the Technical College, Hobart a man clearly impressed with the engravers art, or as he put it … “the joy felt by the artists in the expression by needle and acid of the beauties, architectural and scenic”

    Eight tipped in plates from works by Charles Robinson and Harold Byrne, with brief description opposite … Government House; Parliament House; Customs House; Hobart from the Harbour; Trinity Church; Sailors Rest (Salamanca Place); Winter in Franklin Square and Prison Gates … we would say more interesting choices than most other publications of this type.

    A really delightful and hard to come by item of Hobart ephemera.

  • Views in Australia, or New South Wales and Van Diemen’s Land – Lycett Facsimile

    Views in Australia, or New South Wales and Van Diemen’s Land – Lycett Facsimile

    Delineated, in Fifty Views, with Descriptive Letter Dedicated with Permission to the Right Hon’ble Earl Bathhurst

    This is the only facsimile of the rarely seen Views by Joseph Lycett originally published in London in 1824. A landscape presentation in decorated slipcase (as shown) – fine condition. A heavy item which might require a little more postage … we will try to be helpful.

    Lycett was a convict artist of great distinction – he had been sent out for forgery. He was pardoned and later returned to England where he again went about his forger’s ways – he took his own life in prison.

    His artistry is unique and charming with 50 images of New South Wales mainly in and around Sydney and also many of Tasmania with some beautiful images of Hobart, the Derwent and the surrounding mountains.

    Voyager also has an original Lycett of a Tasmanian view … see our Prints …

    Such beautiful images originally from 1824
