WILSON. T (SAMUEL CLARK),
The Little Marine Botanist;
0. or, Guide to the Collecting and Arranging of Sea-Weed. WITH:The Little Conchologist; an Introduction to the Classification of Shells. WITH: The Little Geologist or First Book of Geology. AND: The Little Mineralogist or First Book of Mineralogy. FOUR Volumes bound in one; approx. 9 cm x 6.5 cm.; 74, [vi], 70, 70, 72 pp. with 16 plates, (7 coloured or partly coloured, by hand); .contemporary half purple calf, red leather settering-piece; rebacked at an early stage, old spine and old lettering-piece mounted, spine dull, corners worn and scuffed; the binder has discarded the half-title to the second work. The author, Samuel Clarke (1810-1875), wrote a number of educational books for children, including also "The Little Entomologist", often using the pseudonym "the Rev. T. Wilson" and also as "Reuben Ramble" and as one of the many "Peter Parleys". These four works are all rare, although "The Little Conchologist" is listed at p.198 of the first volume of the Osborne Collection catalogue, and dated [1837]. The little boks we are offering here must have been a great encouragement to take up natural history, with their small, squarish format and the really charming plates, with several illustrations on each and some very delicate, and accurate hand-colouring. "The Little Marine Botanist" is printed on pink paper. The first and last of the works here bear the name Mary Alice Vallance on the title-page, the last giving her home as Brighton, and the first also bearing the name Mr G.A.Vallance. Despite the small format, one plate (uncolouredshows a pterodactyl, a palaeotherium, an iguanodon and other earlier forms of life. while others show fossils, sea-weed, rocks and shells, and one is a hand-coloured geological map of England and Wales.

YANG, SHIH-FENT,
The Hakka Dialect of Tao-Yuan, Taiwan
. (Academia sinica, the institute of history and philology monographs, Series A. no. 22 ) Taipei, Taiwan, China, 1957 , 451pp. paper, browned text, last 30pp with damage to top margins tear in back cover, 2 small parts torn from front cover. rare. Hakka ,( Pronunciation in Hakka: Hak-ka-fa/-va, Pinyin: Kčjiahuą) is a spoken variation of the Chinese language spoken predominantly in southern China by the Hakka ethnic group and descendants in diaspora throughout East and Southeast Asia and around the world. The Hakka language has numerous variants or dialects, spoken in Guangdong, Fujian, Jiangxi, Guangxi, Sichuan, Hunan, Guizhou provinces, including Hainan island and Taiwan. Hakka is not mutually intelligible with Mandarin, Cantonese, Minnan or most of the significant spoken variants of the Chinese language. Amongst the dialects of Hakka, the Moi-yen/Moi-yan ,dialect of northeast Guangdong has typically been viewed as a prime example of the Hakka language, forming a sort of standard dialect. The Guangdong Provincial Education Department created an official romanisation of Meixian Hakka dialect in 1960, one of four languages receiving this status in Guangdong. Generally speaking, there are five spoken Hakka dialects in Taiwan's Hakka communities scattered around the island. They are the Four County Hakka Dialect, spoken in Miaoli, Kaohsiung and Pingtung's Lu Du, Taoyuan's Chungli, Pingcheng and Lungtan; Sea-Land Hakka Dialect, spoken in Hsinchu, Taoyuan's Kuanyin, Hsinouk, Yangmei and part of Miaoli; Tapu Hakka Dialect, spoken in Fungyuan's Shihkang, Tungshih and Hsinser; Yaoping Hakka Dialect, spoken in part of Changhua, Yuanlin and Chiayi; Shao-an Hakka Dialect, spoken in Chungli, Tachi, west of Silo. Among the five dialects, the Four County Dialect is the most popular Hakka dialect in Taiwan and is considered by the world as the "standard" Hakka dialect. Broadcast announcements made on trains or MRT are all in Four County Hakka Dialect. The Sea-Land Hakka Dialect came in second in popularity while the Tapu, Yaoping and Shao-an dialects, affected by other dialects, were hardly heard as less and less people use them. Ex-U.S. army library copy with its stamp on inside front cover [ DL - IV ].
