The Brigands of the Morea: A Narrative of the Captivity of Mr. S. Soteropoulous
S. Soteropoulous; J. O. Bagdon,
Sauders, Otley, and Co., London, 1868. 
 Hardcover (Full Leather) Hardcover (Full Leather). Very Good Condition/. . The Morea was the name given to the Peloponnese peninsula of Greece during the Middle Ages, and in that time it was a haphazardly governed region. The author of this book, S. Soteropoulous, owned a property on the western coast of the Peloponnesus and was an M.P. for the Eparchy of Triphylia, when he was kidnapped by 'brigands' and held captive for thirty-six days. This narrative, then, was the first "authentic description of life among the brigands of Greece". As such, it deals with much more than just brigrandry, and paints a picture of the difficulties and nature of life in the Morea at that time, even advocating for the restoration and appreciation of their ways of life. Translated from the Greek by the Rev. J. O. Bagdon (James Oscar), who was chaplain to the English community in Zakynthos and provides much background and explanatory material, these two volumes are a rich and beautifully preserved historical artefact. No illustrations, frontispiece from Vol. 1 presumed removed. Full leather with ruled edges and corners. Raised bands, gilt title and tooling. Full gilt edges. Size: 19cm x 13cm. 294 + 326 pages. 2-volume set (complete).

Rocky Section: An Australian Romance.
Partrige, Sydney; [Partridge, Sydney]; Murray, E. H. (illustrator).
Steele Rudd & Co. Ltd / Powell & Co. (Printers) Brisbane 1907 
  Hardback octavo, very good condition, pictorial tan cloth cover (lightly marked), black & white plates (including frontispiece), new endpapers, pages lightly toned (notably last page), minor edgewear, rubber bookshop stamp title page. 188 pp. An historical romance set in rural Australia. This novel originally appeared as a serial in "Steele Rudd's Magazine". The author's name is also Sydney Partridge in some other novels, and is a pseudonym for Kate Margaret Partridge (1871 - 1953), who wrote novels jointly with another writer. Contains all four plates (rarely found). Review: "This is an Australian love story pure and simple. A young Queenslander falls in love with a fascinating girl from town but is jilted in favour of a titled man with money. He becomes a misogynist of the deepest dye, and buries himself in a veritable wilderness called Rocky Section — miles from anywhere. One day he discovers a girl near his place who has evidently lost her way and fainted from sheer exhaustion. He takes her to his hut and revives her, only to find that she has lost her memory and cannot tell where she comes from. He hates women with a bitter hatred, but is on the horns of a dilemma. What happens? "The way out" is most interesting, but you must read it for yourself.".

Heavy, and extra postage may be requested to destinations outside Australia. 120 pp. (Limited edition of 219 copies, source National Gallery of Australia.) A scarce book of engravings of scenes from Dickens by an Australian artist, and published in Australia. The etchings depict memorable scenes from his early novels, particularly Pickwick Papers. There are two title pages, one engraved and one letterpress, and an introduction. Interleaved between the engravings are a page with a small text box that include quotations from his novels. Plate 7 is presented in two states (one on India paper). Printing of the etchings was supervised by C. M. Buck. Podeschi H1042. Ferguson 9140A. Christopher John Coveny (1846 - 1941) abandoned his law practice briefly for teaching, but then became an engraver. This is his most famous work. His etchings were similar to those of Phiz - so he did two extra plates (title page & plate 7) to prove his originality (as explained in a preliminary note). His career was short-lived, however, as he suffered a nervous breakdown in 1884.

He examined the Liverpool River, went up the Roper River in a small steamer and visited Port Darwin, Anson Bay and the Victoria River. Cadell's report, published in the South Australian Parliamentary Papers for 1867, was criticised at the time. Thus, the Napier 'Notes' are the only public account of the expedition, and are an important document of the early contact and charting of the region. Compiled from the Napier journal by his family, and privately printed in Glasgow following his death in 1875. The plates, drawn with lithographic crayon, are by a brother of Napier, and are signed 'JMN'. (Ferguson 13058. Scarce. Small bookshop stickers: A. H. Spencer Hill of Content, Berkelouw Bookdealers.
