Item Description: E. Gambart & Co. / Joseph Hogarth., London., 1854. 2 vols. Folio. pp. 198; 199 - 308. Half-title, printed title to each volume, leaf with Joseph Hogarth's dedication 'To the Queen', leaf with contents, leaf with list of plates with each artist and lithographer named and 90 hand-coloured lithograph plates, after various artists by Harding, Carrick, Gauci, Needham and so on. Each plate coloured by hand and mounted on thick card. Contemporary green half-morocco, banded spine with title gilt and gilt decoration composed of crowned thistles in a cruciform motif in seven compartments, marbled endpapers, a.e.g., later cloth slipcases. The magnificent Scotland Delineated in the extremely rare hand-coloured state. One of the major achievements of British topographical lithography and an extremely attractive book of British scenery. The hand-coloured lithographs are, in the main, after drawings of Scottish scenery commissioned especially for the work from the foremost landscapists of the day by Joseph Hogarth, the publisher. The outstanding plates combined with the outstanding scenery they depict give the work a dramatic grandeur that is unparalleled in British topographical illustration. Among the artists represented (in the order they appear on the title) are J. M. W. Turner (2 plates), Sir W. Allan (2 plates), Clarkson Stanfield (4 plates), George Cattermole (11 plates), W. L. Leitch (16 plates), Thomas Creswicj (3 plates), David Roberts (14 plates), J. D. Harding (4 plates), Joseph Nash (2 plates), Horation MucCulloch (5 plates), D. O. Hill (1 plate) and W. A. Nesfield (2 plates). The lithographs were drawn by Harding, Carrick, Gauci, Needham and others. This issue, with the plates hand-coloured and mounted on card, is of extreme rarity: only three copies (one incomplete) have appeared at auction in the last 35 years. Martin Hardie in 'English Coloured Books' makes no mention of a coloured issue, noting only that by '1850 the method of toned lithograph was becoming out of date' and that many of the books issued with such illustrations were 'admirably adapted for hand-colouring'. 'In 1847, such distinguished artists as David Roberts, Stanfield, J. D. Harding, Nash, and others, joined in illustrating . a book entitled Scotland Delineated.' (Martin Hardie). 'In the 'List of Plates' in the volume of text, Number 3, 'Holyrood Palace', is followed by the entry 'Holyrood Palace from the South-Eastern side of the Calton Hill'. This plate was never issued, the entry being a duplicate of Number 3.' (Abbey). [Abbey Scenery 493; not in Tooley; see Martin Hardie, English Coloured Books, pg. 248 - 249].

Item Description: Giunti 1568 Florence, Giunti, 1568., 1568. 3 parties en 3 volumes in-4 de 28 ff.n.ch. (y compris le titre gravé et le portrait de Vasari) et 523 pp. mal ch. 529 pour le premier volume (première et deuxième parties) ; 20 ff.n.ch. (y compris le titre gravé), 370 pp.ch. et 1 f.n.ch.

Mortimer (French), II, 515 ; Julius von Schlosser, La Littérature artistique, Paris, 1984, pp. 309 et suiv. ; Brunet, V, 1096 & Suppl., II, 845 ; Cicognara, I, 2391. Deuxième édition très augmentée, et première édition illustrée. La première histoire de l'art occidental, et l'un des grands livres de la Renaissance. La mouture originelle des Vite, publiée à Florence par Lorenzo Torrentino en 1550, qui comportait trois parties formant deux volumes, ne traitait que des artistes morts – à l'exception de Michel-Ange, idôlatré par Vasari et ses pairs –, et en tout cas de ceux-là seuls dont l'évolution était achevée et dont on pouvait avoir une vue d'ensemble. Il fallut attendre dix-huit ans pour voir paraître la nouvelle édition, corrigée et augmentée par l'auteur. "Entre-temps, Vasari avait beaucoup lu et beaucoup appris ; il avait visité des régions qu'il ne connaissait pas, ou bien qu'il avait vues superficiellement (Assise, l'Italie du Nord). Il est indéniable qu'elle apporte beaucoup d'améliorations, bien des négligences , des méprises ont été éliminées. De nouvelles sources se sont ouvertes à lui, surtout les portraits ; grâce à ses activités au Palazzo Vecchio, les portrait de l'élite intellectuelle des Médicis lui étaient devenus familiers ; à présent, il orne son œuvre de portrait d'artistes dessinés par lui et ses élèves et il donne ainsi un modèle à ses successeurs. Ses matériaux se sont considérablement accrus, la seconde édition le montre, ne serait-ce que par ses dimensions ; un grand nombre de biographies nouvelles sont venues s'y ajouter (trente-quatre rien que pour le XVIe siècle !), et surtout il est tenu compte d'artistes vivants dans un volumineux appendice spécial. A côté des portraits déjà mentionnés, on voit apparaître une nouvelle source : les dessins ; la collection personnelle de Vasari, le Libro souvent mentionné apparaissent cités ici pour la première fois. Vasari qui se sent maintenant, et à bon droit, homme de lettres reconnu, s'efforce d'améliorer son style et son exposé." (Schlosser). Les pièces liminaires comportent – outre les tables des matières, des portraits et des lieux –, une épitre à Cosimo de' Medici, une introduction à la nouvelle édition, une dédicace de Vasari "a gli artefici del disegno", et une très longue lettre de l'historien florentin Giovanni Battista Adriani (v. 1511-1579) sur les arts antiques, propre à cette édition. La remarquable et très riche illustration gravée sur bois, ici en premier tirage, est l'un des principaux attraits des Vite de 1568. Elle se compose de 3 titres avec encadrement architecturaux – le premier entourant un bois allégorique montrant le réveil des âmes des artistes morts (répété à la fin du dernier volume), les deux autres ornés des armes des Médicis –, d'un portrait de Vasari avec un encadrement allégorique et une petite vue de Florence, et de 144 portraits légendés gravés d'après les dessins de l'auteur ou de ses élèves, placés dans des bordures emblématiques et intercalés dans le texte. Des initiales historiées, des bandeaux et des frises complètent l'ornementation. Il existe de légères variantes de tirage pour ces trois volumes.

Item Description: London: Robert Laurie and James Whittle, 1796., 1796. Broadsheets (530 x 385 mm). Letterpress title-page, 12 leaves of letterpress text (first page of text spotted). 18 EXCEPTIONALLY FINE engraved maps with MAGNFICENT CONTEMPORARY HAND-COLOUR, WITH PERFECT OXIDIZATION OF THE GREEN PIGMENT by Jefferys, Robert Wilkinson, one by Faden (Granada), two by John Byres, and one each by D'Anville, James Waring, Robert Baker, Daniel Paterson and Van Keulen , all but two double-page, extra-illustrated with an additional map: "Plan of the Isle of Trinidad from the actual Surveys made in the Year 1797," (London: Laurie and Whittle, 1800), engraved vignette head-piece (some occasional pale spotting and offsetting, a few short splits along folds). Modern half calf antique, marbled boards, by Michael Wilcox. Provenance: with the small library label of Wolfgang A. Herz, on the front pastedown, his sale "Important Voyages and Travels", 9th December 2009, lot 289. AN EXCEPTIONALLY FINE AND ATTRACTIVE collection of maps of the islands of the West Indies, prefaced by the 24-page "General View of the West Indies" from Jefferys's "West India Atlas" first published London: Sayer and Bennett, 1775. 16 of the maps were published by Laurie and Whittle; 14 of them are dated 1794, one is dated 1795, and the additional map of Trinidad is dated 1800. Described on the title-page as a "New Edition", first published with this title, but with "Seventeen Correct Maps" by Sayer and Bennett in 1775. Published at the height of England's dominatoin of world trade, particularly of the West Indies Sugar trade. This is evidence of William Pitt's determination to create a class of wealth in England that the world had never seen before only to be dashed a few years later by the Napoleonic Wars. Thomas Jefferys published some of "the most important eighteenth-century maps of the Americas, a series given cohesion and impetus by the preliminary hostilities and eventual outbreak of the Seven Years' War. Among many individual works of note were Joshua Fry's and Peter Jefferson's 1751 survey of Virginia, engraved and published by Jefferys in 1753, and Joseph Blanchard's and Samuel Langdon's New Hampshire (1761), the first published map of the state. The culmination of this concentration of work was the atlas published in association with Robert Sayer as A General Topography of North America in 1768. Posthumous collections were published by Sayer in 1775 as The American Atlas, The North-American Pilot, including important charts by James Cook, and The West-India Atlas, for which a collection of working drafts survives in the British Library" (DNB).

Item Description: Venice, Erhard Ratdolt, 16. I. 1482., 1482. 4to. 32 ff. Title page printed in red and black. With 2 woodcut diagrams and 8 tables in the text; white-vine initials in two sizes, lombardic initials (many coloured in red). Rubricated. Recent full vellum. Second edition of the author's principal work, originally published at Mantua in 1473. Al-Qabisi (also known as "Alchabitus" in the Latin tradition) flourished in Aleppo, Syria, in the middle of the 10th century. Although his education was primarily in geometry and astronomy, his principal surviving treatise, "Madkhal" (here in the Latin translation of Joanis Hispalensis prepared in 1144), is an introductory exposition of some of the fundamental principles of genethlialogy (the astrological science of casting nativities, or divination as to the destinies of newborns). The "Madkhal" in its Latin version was published many times in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. - Bookplate of joint collectors Rudolf Hugo Driessen (1873-1957) and Caroline E. F. Kleyn (1883-1933). Outer margin of first leaf slightly frayed; marginal annotation in red ink on its verso (slightly trimmed by binder's knife).

Item Description: Strasbourg, Jakob Cammerlander, 1532., 1532. 4to. (12), 42 ff. With 66 woodcuts in the text (mostly by Hans Weiditz) and 29 diagrams. Contemp. wooden boards with blindstamped leather spine; a single central clasp. First, exceedingly rare Cammerlander printing of this famous 1475 calendar, brought up to date and frequently reissued. The book stresses the connection of medical and astronomical science, and the medical section draws heavily on the great Arabic physicians: Avicenna, Almansor, Abul Hasan Ali, Rhazes, etc. "Provides a description of the 36 constellations, 7 planets and 12 signs of the zodiac based on Hyginus, the complexions after Aristotle, and the health precepts of Avicenna and Hippocrates" (cf. Zinner, Regiomontanus). The calendar contains 12 zodiac woodcuts (repeated), 32 constellations, 7 planets, a Vein Man (repeated) and rosette of months as well as 29 small woodcuts depicting the lunar phases. "The artists employed by Cammerlander were directed by Hans Weiditz. His earliest works are the four planets Saturn, Mars, Sol, and Luna [.] the three missing planets have been supplied with items of foreign provenance [.] the 12 signs of the zodiac and the 32 constellations are unquestionably new designs by Weiditz for Cammerlander. Each one measures c. 57 x 54 mm. The woodcuts are based on Hyginus's 'Poeticon astronomicon' (Venice 1488) [.] In contrast to the rather coarsely drawn Italian model, they all show the characteristic flowing lines for which the Strasbourg master is known" (cf. Röttinger). The fine constellation charts are not recorded by Warner (Sky explored). - Contemporary ownership "Clemens Hör" on front pastedown: probably the Swiss humanist, educator and preacher of that name. Hör (1515-72) "was also a mathematician and astronomer" (cf. HBLS IV, 260) and has some importance for the history of music. Hör trimmed and mounted part of a 1532 broadsheet above his ownership; the endpapers and margins contain extensive annotations in his hand. - Insignificant worming to binding; some water- and fingerstaining to wide margins. A few edge tears and wormholes (more extensive in upper gutter), but very well preserved for a calendar. A fine copy in its first binding with interesting provenance. Extremely rare: a single copy listed in NUC (s. v. 'Kalendarius' in the supplement). VD 16, M 6542. Benzing, Strasbourg 1387 & Cammerlander 73. Röttinger, Holzschnitte des J. Cammerlander (in: Gutenberg-Jb. 1936), p. 126. Cf. Houzeau/L. 14452 & Zinner, Regiomontanus, p. 204 (citing later Strasbourg eds. only). Bookseller Inventory # 37361

Item Description: [Turkestan, 875 AH (1467 AD)]., 1467. 4to. Arabic manuscript, 279 ff. (232 × 164 mm, text panel 192 × 110 mm). Single column, 30 lines per page. Text in black naskh script, with some words and illustrations in red ink. Blindstamped old morocco binding. The manuscript is illustrated with many diagrams and tables in red and black ink, depicting astronomical theorems. The pictures in ff. 25 and 26, for example, illustrate theories regarding the arc between Equator and Eclipse; f. 44 shows the moon phases; f. 54 describes the construction of solar eclipses; ff. 56, 57, 59 and 62 discuss the planets' eccentricity; ff. 72, 73, 74, and 75 describe hypotheses regarding the eccentricity of Venus and Mercury; ff. 76, 77, 79, and 82 contain demonstrations of the regressions of Mars; f. 87 illustrates Mercury's regression; leaves 94, 103, and 105 deal with hypotheses about the distance between Sun and Earth. - Nasir al-Din al-Tusi wrote several philosophical and scientific treatises dealing with mathematics, natural history and astronomy. His works were so critically relevant that most probably Copernicus perused them extensively in the development of his famous heliocentric theories. The name "Almagest" comes from the Arabic "al-majisti" ("the greatest"); the original work was composed by Ptolemy in the second century AD, and it was subsequently translated into Arabic during the 9th century. In the 10th century, Al-Nayziri and al-Tabani wrote the first commentary of the Almagest, but the most important commentary was to be the one composed by al-Tusi in 1247. In his treatise, al-Tusi dealt with the most important astronomical problems and pointed out the main mistakes rooted in the Greek tradition. He especially criticized Ptolemy's theories on latitude, and he suggested a theorem capable of adjusting them. Moreover, in his work we can find new theories about annular solar eclipses and the famous "Tusi couple", explaining the latitudinal movement of planets. Also, the book contains new trigonometrical techniques for computing solar tables. - A few marginalia. Several leaves near the end have repairs to the blank margins; some repaired holes near the beginning (occasionally touching text). Spine repaired; slight waterstaining; on the whole a fine manuscript of this rare and crucial work of science. Cf. GAL S I, p. 930. Bookseller Inventory # 33942

Item Description: Canton, 1671. Soft cover. Book Condition: Very Good. Canton, 1671. Soft cover. Very Good. Folio - over 12 - 15" tall. Folio [29 x 18.5 cm]. 45 ff.: (2) ff., 1-43 ff. Xylographic (woodblock) Chinese printing on double-leaves folded at fore-edge, with frontispiece showing the emblem of the Jesuit Order (reproduced in Cordier, p. 26) in white on black. Original paper binding with original sewing, includes slipcase. Ownership inscription dated 1808 on fly leaf. Small loss on the title page upper blank margin, repair to clean tear on leaf 30; small worm holes in a few leaves, sometimes affecting partial letters or border. Generally very good. Rare first and sole edition of this Chinese-Latin text of imperial rulings in favor of Christians, a collaborative effort by the missionaries Gouvea, Buglio, Magelhaëns and Ferdinand Verbiest. A scarce example of Chinese xylographic printing by the Jesuits, such works constitute a fascinating moment in East-West cultural exchange, showing how Chinese technology was appropriated by the Jesuits both for local consumption and export back to Europe. That the Jesuits were able to produce books in Chinese caused a sensation in Europe, and proclaimed the success of the Jesuit missionary enterprise in Asia in the eyes of both the Order and European patrons. The Innocentia victrix includes both Gouvea's tract vindicating the Jesuits and the text of an imperial edict issued at Peking reconfirming tolerance towards the Christian religion. Its publication represents an end to the persecution of Christian missionaries that was unleashed by a series of charges levelled at Jesuits in 1664-66. The decrees are printed in old, modern and cursive Chinese characters, with phonetic transcriptions and interpretations in Latin. The Acta Sanctorum attributes the Latin text to P. Verbiest. The work also contains numerous references to the Jesuits' astronomical activities in the Western-style astronomical observatory they built in Peking (2v, 7r-v, 16r-v, 17v, 23v, 28v, 40r); and specific mention is made of the astronomical activities of Matteo Ricci, Schall von Bell and especially Ferdinand Verbiest. The Chinese were highly dependent on the Jesuits' astronomical prowess for producing a reliable, accurate calendar, a weakness the Jesuits exploited brilliantly to secure a prominent place in Chinese society. The restoration of tolerance, articulated in the present work, thus ensured both the continuation of the observatory's activities by Verbiest, and the Jesuits' continued influence on Chinese attitudes towards the West. Jesuit missionaries in China had seen their favor decrease dramatically in 1664 when imperial agents turned against them-despite the court influence of Ricci's successor, Adam Schall von Bell-under the pretext that they were emissaries paid by the Portuguese who were paving the road for a new occupation. Schall von Bell was sentenced to death with five of his Chinese assistant converts, and although pardoned, died the following year. After Schall von Bell's death, Antoine de Gouvea (1592-1677), who had been an ardent missionary in China since 1636, was sent to Canton along with the other 38 missionaries in China at the time and held there for six years. In 1667, the 14-year-old Emperor Kangxi took matters into his own hands and allied himself with Schall von Bell's successor, the Flemish Ferdinand Verbiest, thereby restoring the Jesuits to imperial favor.

Item Description: New York: James Parker, 1747., 1747. 124,11,[1],13-24,[1],25-39pp. plus three folding maps. Folio. Late 19th- century polished calf, spine and boards gilt, leather label. Heraldic bookplate on front pastedown, contemporary ownership inscription of Hendrick Remsen on front fly leaf. Occasional minor stains. Bound at the end is the March 7, 1747-48 issue of THE NEW-YORK GAZETTE (No. 268). A very good copy. This highly important work is of interest for a number of reasons: its primary author, James Alexander, achieved great fame as the lawyer of Peter Zenger; it contains some of the first maps engraved in America; it was seen through the press by Benjamin Franklin and his New York partner, James Parker; and it is a vital document in settling the long-standing land disputes of colonial New Jersey. Streeter calls it "one of the most remarkable documents of colonial times." The land disputes dealt with in this document had their origins in overlapping Crown grants made by Charles II, which came to a head in arguments over quitrents and surveys in the 1720s. James Alexander, who had been surveyor-general of New Jersey before becoming a lawyer and winning fame as the successful defender of Zenger, undertook on behalf of the Board of Proprietors of the Eastern Division of New Jersey to assemble the evidence for a Bill in Chancery to settle the matter. He assembled the material published here in the 1740s, arguing the proprietors' case with "great subtlety and complexity," according to Streeter. Alexander consulted Benjamin Franklin concerning publication, and the printing work of the letterpress was executed by James Parker of New York, a partner of Franklin. However, Franklin advised that proper map engraving could not be accomplished in Philadelphia or New York, and work on the three maps was farmed out to James Turner of Boston. The now-famed cartographer, Lewis Evans, drew the maps, the first showing North America from Cape Hatteras to Boston; the second showing early survey and boundary lines, Indian paths, and major roads; and the third showing surveys and purchases in East New Jersey. The maps were available to purchasers in both colored and uncolored format. Those present here are in the uncolored state. These are some of the earliest maps drawn and engraved in the colonies, and as such are of tremendous importance. Additional information on the history of A BILL IN THE CHANCERY. can be found in Joseph Felcone's bibliography, cited below. EVANS 6021. MILLER 426. STREETER SALE 918. CHURCH 961. SABIN 5378.

Item Description: Lorenz Gude and Ted Berrigan, New York, 1963. Wraps. Book Condition: Near Fine. First Edition. Side-stapled 4to. mimeo with silk-screened covers designed by Andy Warhol. 36 x 22.5 cm. Unpaginated. This copy SIGNED by Berrigan, Denby, Wieners, Frank O'Hara, Gerard Malanga, and Andy Warhol on the colophon. One of an unknown but tiny (one source suggests "a half-dozen or so," but suspect higher) number of such specially-signed copies. In addition, six poems contain small corrections in Denby's hand, and one poem is revised by both Denby and Berrigan (with Denby correcting Berrigan's correction). Generally fine. An unknown hand (probably Berrigan's) has noted "Signed" in the upper right-hand corner of the front cover. Trace wear to edges. A remarkably bright, sharp, clean and sound example of a fragile production. The fourth issue of Berrigan's landmark mimeo, an issue dedicated to the work of poet and critic Edwin Denby, but most significant for its Warhol-designed cover. As the colophon page states simply: "The cover of this issue was designed by Andy Warhol from photographs of poets Edwin Denby and Gerard Malanga." Berrigan had met Warhol at a reading by Frank O'Hara earlier that year and a few days later sent the artist the first two issues of his fledgling literary journal. As Berrigan's diary notes soon after: "Andy Warhol said he'd like to do a cover for C 4." Warhol and Malanga met Denby at his apartment where the photographs for the cover were taken. The two images finally selected -- of Malanga behind Denby with both men holding hands, and the second for the rear cover of Malanga leaning in to kiss Denby -- caused a stir in literary circles when it was finally published. As Reva Wolf -- whose book Andy Warhol, Poetry, and Gossip in the 1960's (Chicago, 1997) provides the fullest account of the production and importance of these images -- explains: "This is the first-known instance in which Warhol used Polaroids for silkscreen portraits, a practice he did not pursue at the time but one to which he would return and which would become his standard procedure for making portraits" (22). According to Malanga, it was Berrigan who actually printed the covers -- Warhol having dropped the silkscreens off "along with a can of paint, a squeegee, and instructions on how to print it" (30) on his way to Los Angeles for his second one-man show -- thereby becoming in essence a temporary Warhol studio assistant. Nonetheless, these Warhol-designed covers represent a turning point in his development as an artist. As Wolf explains, Warhol's C portraits were both a backhanded critique of the poet Frank O'Hara (who maintained a chilly skepticism of the artist) as well as a way for Warhol to further insinuate himself in the New York literary scene at an early and still-formative time in his career. Copies of this particular issue of C are themselves scarce. Edition sizes for most issues were typically around 250. We've seen only a handful of this issue over the last ten years, with several lacking the covers, and are aware of only two other copies of the signed issue having been offered for sale. And though not in Warhol's catalogue raisonne, this very-limited signed issue represents what is, in effect, one the artist's earliest silk-screened multiples. Rare and important.

'This volume is a compilation of quotations of various lengths, generally with sources noted but not always accurately, taken from the poetical works of some fifty Elizabethan writers. There are included 91 genuine extracts from Shakespeare's works, mostly (63) derived from 'Venus and Adonis' and 'Lucrece' but all from plays or poems that had been printed before 1600.(Pforzheimer) Of the five Shakespeare plays from which extracts are incorporated in the volume (Love's Labour's lost, Henry IV, Part I, Richard II, Richard III, and Romeo & Juliet), Romeo & Juliet is the most heavily represented, signaling the play's popularity, or perhaps utility, in the period.(Roberts, Companion to Shakespeare's Works, The Tragedies) The extracts are arranged alphabetically under subject-headings, and the author's name is appended in each case. Spenser is quoted 225 times, Shakespeare 91, Daniell 115, Drayton 163, Warner 117, Chapman 83, Ben Jonson 13, and Marlowe 33.

Item Description: Various places 1850s-1880s, 1850. No Binding. Book Condition: Very Good. Highly important ambrotype 1. The Beecher Family (Harriet Beecher Stowe, Lyman Beecher, Henry Ward Beecher, Catharine Beecher, and Thomas, William, Edward, Charles, Isabella, & Mary Beecher). Mathew Brady Studios, 1850s. Half plate ambrotype. Original coloring of cheeks. Contemporary case, lacking upper cover, mat with stamp of G.M. Howe, Portland and Upton, Maine. Small scratch, some spotting due to emulsion separation, but overall the emulsion is intact and the image is clear with good contrast. This splendid and rare Mathew Brady Studio group portrait de- picts ten members of the celebrated Beecher family. In this family portrait, Lyman Beecher is seated at center, flanked by his four daughters (Harriet, Catharine, Mary, and Isabella). Behind them stand the five of the seven brothers (William, Edward, Henry Ward, Charles, and Thomas—George had died in 1843 and James was a missionary in China). The Beechers were one of America’s most famous families. Patri- arch Lyman Beecher, famed clergyman, abolitionist, and social reformer, was a central figure of the Second Great Awakening. Harriet is most famous as the author of Uncle Tom’s Cabin. Rev. Henry Ward Beecher, one of the best-known men of his day, was an evangelist, abolitionist, advocate of women’s suffrage, proponent of evolution, and social reformer. Catharine Beecher was one of the leading advocates of female education. Charles Beecher was a distinguished clergyman, author, and composer of hymns, and his brother Thomas K. Beecher, also a minister, is best remembered as a close friend of Samuel Clemens. Isabella Beecher was a major figure in the women’s suffrage movement. This ambrotype precedes the other famous Brady photograph of the Beechers, the 1861 portrait of Harriet, Lyman, and Henry (albumen print, National Portrait Gallery). The case is stamped George M. Howe, listed as a Daguerreian at 112 Middle Street, Portland, Maine from 1853 to 1860. The use of a case from a gallery in Maine may be explained by Harriet’s move to Brunswick, Maine in 1850 when her husband Calvin Ellis Stowe secured a teaching position at Bowdoin. A later albumen print at the Harriet Beecher Stowe Center in Hartford bears the Brady stamp. Colored Salt Print by Mathew Brady 2. Lyman Beecher. Mathew Brady Studios, ca. 1856. Hand-colored salted paper photograph (7 1⁄4 x 6 in.). Half plate daguerreotype case with brass mat and red velvet retainer in double- hinged, push-button plain leather case with “BRADY’S GALLERY, 205 & 359 BROADWAY NEW YORK” stamped in dark red velvet case lining. Case edges heavily worn; without glass. Clergyman, educator, and social reformer, Lyman Beecher embodied the shift from the harsh, demanding Puritan faith of the Second Great Awakening to a religion that found its expression in larger society. A leading figure in Calvinist churches in New York, Connecticut, and Massachusetts, Beecher played a key role in founding Yale Divinity School. In 1833, Beecher and his family moved west to Cincinnati, where he became president of the Lane Theological Seminary, a training ground for the religious leaders of the abolition movement. “Magnetic in personality, incisive and powerful in manner of expression, Beecher was in his prime one of the most eloquent of American pulpit orators” (NNDB). Exhibited: National Portrait Gallery, Smithsonian Institution, Fogg Art Museum (Harvard University), and International Center of Photography. Reference: featured in “A Gallery of Images,” Mary Panzer, Mathew Brady and the Image of History (Smithsonian, 1997). Signed by Harriet Beecher Stowe 3. Harriet Beecher Stowe. George H. Hastings, ca. 1880s. Albumen print, cabinet card mount. Photographer’s studio stamp on the verso: “Geo H. Hastings / Photographer. / 147 Tremont St. Cor. West St. / Boston, Mass / Elevator to Studio.” Signed by Harriet Beecher Stowe. Daughter of Lyman Beecher, Harriet Beecher Stowe is most famous for her novel Uncle Tom’s Cabin, serialized in 1851-2 and. Bookseller Inventory # ABE-12590413184

The Maîtres de l'Affiche (Masters of the Poster) were small format reproductions (pages measure 15.75 x 11.5 inches) of what were ostensibly the best and most famous posters from around Europe and America, as selected by the famous critic and poster supporter Roger Marx. They were printed by the Chaix publishing house as a concession to the growing craze of poster collecting at the end of the 19th-century. Every month between 1896-1900, while the Maîtres were being published, subscribers would receive four new plates. Each plate is a full color lithograph printed on high quality paper. The complete series consists of 256 images. The appeal of the Maîtres was, and remains, their small, easy-to-collect format. These are the complete first two volumes (of five) featuring plates 1 to 96. First two (of five total) volumes. 96 full-page color lithographs. Folio, red leather-backed boards (well-worn and soiled; internally quite clean). Paris: Imprimerie Chaix, 1896-1897. First editions. Very good copies, clean and complete. Scarce.

Item Description: (Venice, Giacomo Penzio for Melchiorre Sessa, 5 Sept 1506)., 1506. 4to (210 × 150 mm). 64 unnumbered ff. With woodcut illustration on title, woodcut initials, astrological figures in the text, printer's mark on final leaf verso; complete with final blank. 19th-c. vellum with red and black morocco labels and gilt centre tools to spine. An attractive edition of this key astrological work. Of all the Arabic writers on astrology, the most imposing is Ja'far ibn Muhammad Abû Ma'shar al-Balkhî (c. 787-886), known in the West as Albumasar. The most notable astrological work ascribed to him is the "Prediction of Changes of Years and Births". A manuscript in Cairo titled "Kitab Akham al-Qiranat wa'l Kawakib wa'l Buruj al-Ithnay 'Ashra" (Book of Indication of Conjunction and Corrections of Stars with some other Stars) is very probably the same work (cf. B. A. Rosenfeld and E. Ihsanoglu, Mathematicians, Astronomers and other Scholars of Islamic Civilisation and their Works [Istanbul, 2003], no. 88, p. 34). This 12th-century Latin translation by John of Seville of his "al-Madkhal al-kabir ilá 'ilm ahkam al-nujum" (Great Introduction to the Science of Astrology) was first published at Augsburg, 1489. - Upon Sessa's well-known device, the famous bibliophile Bishop of Ely, John Moore, remarked: "Whenever you see a book with a cat and a mouse in the frontispiece, seize upon it: for the chances are three to four that it will be found both curious and valuable" (Fumagalli, 486). - Small early inkstamp on title; ms. index to binder's blanks at end; some early marginalia and underlinings in two distinct hands. Bookplate of William Stirling-Maxwell (1818-78), the Scottish historical writer, statesman, horse breeder, and collector. Vellum insignificantly darkened with dust, the occasional trivial mark internally; overall an excellent copy. Edit 16, CNCE 822. Adams A 567. Isaac 12913.

Item Description: Paris, de l'Imprimerie Royale, 1814., 1814. 12mo. XXX, 161 pp. 113 pp. Full contemporary English calf, boards with decorative gilt surround, banded spine with black morocco title label and gilt tool in six compartments, board edges and turn-ins with additional gilt decoration, marbled edges and endpapers. First edition of "Sind-Bâd" and the first independent printing of any part of the Arabian Nights in Arabic. Although traditionally included in the corpus of the 1001 Nights (Alf Layla wa Layla) as told by Scheherazade, it is thought that the series of voyages that make up the voyages of Sinbad have older and separate origins, incorporating elements of Homer, Panchatantra, other Persian, Arab and Indian literary material as well as historical material relating to trade and navigation. Set traditionally during the reign of Haroun al-Rashid, Sindbad undertakes seven voyages from Basra, each leading one to the other, encounters fabulous creatures, faces exhaustive ordeals and amasses fabulous wealth. The publisher of the present edition, Louis-Mathieu Langlès, an important figure in the study of Middle-Eastern and Oriental languages and literature, was a correspondent of William Jones in Calcutta, co-founder of the Ecole des Langues Orientales Vivantes in Paris and the keeper of the Indian manuscript department in the Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris. "Un ouvrage classique, et d'une certaine importance sous le point de vue scientifique, historique ou littéraire" (preface). - Provenance: Engraved pictorial bookplate of Paul Fölsche to front free endpaper.

Item Description: NASA, 1961-1963, 1961. No Binding. Book Condition: Fine. The Birth of the American Space Program A One-of-a-Kind Collection of Signed Mercury Mission Launch Photographs. Brilliant color photographs, each 10 ¾ x 14 in, matted. Fine. A MAGNIFICENT COLLECTION of photographs of all six manned Mercury missions, with each Mercury astronaut inscribing his launch photograph to fellow astronaut Walter Cunningham, later the Apollo 7 lunar module pilot. Project Mercury, which began on October 7, 1958, one year after the launch of Sputnik I, aimed to put a man in orbit, to study the effects of space flight on humans, and to return men safely to earth. The collection is accompanied by a typed letter signed by astronaut Walter Cunningham stating, “This collection of six launch pad photos, one for each of the manned Mercury missions, were obtained by me personally shortly after being selected as an Astronaut [October 1963]. It was tangible proof to any visitors or old friends that I was actually acquainted with these ‘heroes’ and could bask in their reflected glory. The time would eventually come when I would serve the same function for many others. Walter Cunningham, Apollo VII.” The wonderful, inspiring inscriptions are as follows: 1. “To Walt Cunningham, warmest personal regard and high expectations-Alan B Shepard Jr. Shepard was the first American in space. 2. “Best Wishes to Walt, Gus Grissom.” Grissom was the second American in space. As a result of Gus Grissom’s death in the tragic 1967 Apollo I launch pad fire, his signature on photographs of this significance is rare. 3. “Best Regard to Walt- we’ve had some big days as here shown, but there are even bigger ahead. Good luck, Walt JA Glenn Jr.” Glenn was the first American in orbit). 4. “To Walt with a sincere ‘Welcome Aboard’ warm personal regard and great faith in your future contributions to the space program. Scott Carpenter.” 5. “Best wishes Walt, come up sometime, Wally Schirra.” 6. “Best regards to Walt, Gordon Cooper.” Cooper was the first American in space for more than 24 hours. Signed by Author(s).

Minor worming to pastedowns, to margins of first three leaves, and to last two leaves (affecting a half dozen words in all), four gatherings with unobtrusive small brown stains at gutter, titles faintly dusty, other trivial imperfections, but A VERY FINE, EXTREMELY FRESH COPY, the contents quite clean and crisp, with deep impressions of the type. Offered in an unrestored contemporary binding of considerable appeal, this is the first printing of a famous collection of works on the Roman military system and methods, usually listed under "Vegetius," the 4th century imperial bureaucrat whose "De re Militari" is the chief treatise in the group. The text also includes the "Strategemata" of Sextus Julius Frontinus (30-104 A.D.), Roman magistrate and governor of Britain from 74-78; "De Instruendis," a work on tactics by Aelianus (2nd c. Greek); the "De Vocabulis rei Militaris" of Julius Modestus, a Roman grammarian in the time of Augustus; and "De Optimo Imperatore," the Latin translation of "Strategikos," a comprehensive guide to being a good general by the Greek Platonic philosopher Onosander (1st century A.D.). This collection was bound by the original owner of our volume with the third edition of a Roman history by the Greek historian Herodian of Antioch (ca. 170-240). Written about events during the author's own lifetime, this colorful history in eight books covers the period from the death of Marcus Aurelius in 180 to the beginning of the reign of Gordianus III in 238. The author apparently used Thucydides to some extent as a model, both in the outline of the work and in its style, which Photius compliments as being "clear, vigorous, and agreeable." Our edition comprises the first printing of the graceful and fluent Latin translation of the text done by the preeminent 15th century Italian classicist and poet Angelo Poliziano (1454-94). Roman printer Eucharius Silber was a clerk from Würzburg who set up his press in the sunnier clime of Italy in 1480, and continued printing there until his death in 1509, when he was succeeded by his son Marcellus. He surpassed his most immediate rival and fellow emigré Stephan Planck in both quality and quantity of work, producing around 200 incunabula, some of them running to editions as large as 1,500 copies. He specialized in large octavo copies of Latin classics, typified by the present item. Bazalerius de Bazaleriis began printing in Bologna in 1480, moved briefly to Reggio (1488-89), came back to Bologna and printed there until 1495, and finally removed permanently to Reggio. The Herodianus is one of a number of works he reprinted, apparently by agreement, after the editions of Plato de Benedictis. Bookseller Inventory # ST12535

[There is a small grouping of 50 or so letters relating to Simpson's father and family dating as early as 1880s.] On another level this archive is sure to please collectors and historians of the early 20th century art in America given the breadth of Simpson's associations with many, many important American and International artists and personalities of his day including Max Mager, John del Russi, Victor Boetsch, Spruill, Westerman, Muse, and Renee Andre.

Simpson traveled and painted in Europe in 1923 and 1924. He lived and worked in Paris, France, Italy, and Oxford, England. He began exhibiting his art around 1920 and shortly thereafter became a member of the Chicago Society of Etchers and the Society of Independent Artists. During his career, Maxwell Stewart Simpson was known for his fine landscapes, marines, still life and portraits, both as a painter and original printmaker. The art of Maxwell Simpson is housed in many major American public collections including, Rutgers University, the New York Public Library, the Art Institute of Detroit, the Newark Museum and the New Jersey State Museum.

Item Description: Written and transcribed: c. 1757 (1170 AH)., Ottoman Empire, 1757. Contemporary full calf, expertly rebacked with six compartments of raised bands and gilt motifs, gilt red title label on two, all edges speckled red. , Ibrahim Haqqi Erzurumi Efendi (1703-1780) is considered an outstanding figure of 18th century Ottoman Turkey. He approached the domains of both religion and science as a means of approaching God, stemming from his immense knowledge of the Sufi branch of Islam as well as his studies in Western sciences. The Ma?rifat Namih is considered to be his greatest work (spelled variously as Marifatnama, Ma?rifatname, and Maarifat Nameh, with English translations of the title varying between ?The Book of Knowledge and Skills? and ?The Book of Gnossis?). It touches upon several subjects, such as theology, morality, mathematics, astronomy and medicine. It has been argued that Ibrahim Efendi was the first Muslim scholar to advocate post-Copernican astronomy, as depicted in the colourful world maps transcribed in this book and the proofs he offers in support of the concept. , Size : Small folio, (Although Arabic texts are written right-to-left, the foliation has been marked in pencil in Western numerals from left-to-right, which we will use in our description.)The manuscript was copied in Ottoman Turkish (Arabic Turkish) on thin, polished, cream-coloured paper. The title leaf has a green, blue, gold and red headpiece and its text is within double green borders, and a white flower decorates the margin. The last twelve pages (1-6) present an index with red lines and black script. The text is in fine naskh script with black and red inks within a red double-lined border, 31 lines of text within a written area of 232 x 112 mm, occasional red underlining, sections usually demarcated by a single word of red text on a line with a red border on either side. The fourth page (474v) has a green watercoloured border and green roundels in the text, and a six-pointed star in the left margin, coloured in red and green. There are 11 full-page colour illustrations of scientific diagrams (such as world maps and moon positions), 8 full-page coloured tables and 5 coloured half-page illustrations, as well as a round, black and red ink chart on leaf 448v. The manuscript was copied in Arabic on thin, polished, cream-coloured paper. The title leaf has a green, blue, gold and red headpiece and its text is within double green borders, and a white flower decorates the margin. The last twelve pages (1-6) present an index with red lines and black script. The text is in fine naskh script with black and red inks within a red double-lined border, 31 lines of text within a written area of 232 x 112 mm, occasional red underlining, sections usually demarcated by a single word of red text on a line with a red border on either side. The fourth page (474v) has a green watercoloured border and green roundels in the text, and a six-pointed star in the left margin, coloured in red and green. There are 11 full-page colour illustrations of scientific diagrams (such as globes and moon positions), 8 full-page coloured tables and 5 coloured half-page illustrations, as well as a round, black and red ink chart on leaf 448v. , References : Gulen, F. ?Key Concepts in the Practice of Sufism,? p. 106, n. 69; Virk, Z. ?Science and Technology in Ottoman Sultanate.? , Foliation. 2 ff., 474 ff., 2 ff. Occasional smudging of ink, minor offsetting on pages facing illustrations, leaves 7-11 with minor waterstains in the upper corner margins, leaves 12-18 expertly reinforced in the upper margin, with heavy loss to text in upper half of leaves 14v and 15r-v. Text appears to be lost on 378r (faint traces of text still remain). Leaves 343v-350v with dark pink stain in centre of text toward gutter (no loss), likewise on 443v-463v. Leaves 448-454 have had their margins reinforced. Leaves numbered 449 and 450 must be switched, as well as 453 and 454. Altogether a very good copy considering the uniqueness of the work and the fine detail of the illustrations. Bookseller Inventory # B3515

Item Description: Hodgson & Co. / Dean & Munday / J. Bailey. c.1820., London., 1820. 17 works in 1 vol. 12mo. (184 x 112 mm). Various paginations (pp. 24 - 54), many with list of advertisements to final text leaf verso or final leaf. Each work with hand-coloured engraved frontispiece, 10 folding, the majority unsigned and undated but keyed to the text and showing multiple vignettes from the tales, one plate by Isaac Cruikshank (signed 'I. R. C.'), one work with additional hand-coloured vignette to title. Full contemporary tree calf, spine with double gilt rules and red morocco title label with title 'TALES', blue speckled edges. A rare survival: an unsophisticated contemporary collection of Gothic bluebooks or Sixpenny Shockers. With a basis in 17th and 18th century chap-books and deriving from the popularity of the Gothic novel, the Sixpenny Shocker (so called for its price of 6d. for roughly 32 pages as opposed to the Shilling Shocker of c.72 pages) was an extremely popular publishing phenomenon in the final years of the 18th and early years of the 19th centuries. Issued in fragile wrappers and with a hand-coloured engraved frontispiece (many of these frontispieces featured vignettes keyed to the text with the illustration deriving from contemporary theatrical histrionics), these works, also called Gothic bluebooks (despite their appearance in wrappers of various colours), were based on Radcliffean modes, the German schauerroman, as well as the works of 'Monk' Lewis, Walter Scott and Byron and featured Gothic, chivalric and sensational archetypes. Often advertised as abridgements of longer Gothic works or prose versions of popular dramas, the Gothic bluebooks, usually with a long exegetic title, were aimed at the leisured as well as the literate poor, took massive liberties with plot, style, authorship and, indeed, authorisation. In the most part anonymous, the authorship - even when an author is credited - of these works can be misleading, but they are by no means solely the work of Grub Street. Several of the authors credited in this collection, notably 'Monk' Lewis and Sarah Scudgell Wilkinson were novelists of some repute and it is worth noting that the Whig reformer Lord John Russell wrote a Sixpenny Shocker ('The Nun of Arrouca') himself. The works represented in this collection bear testament to many of the tropes of the Sixpenny Shocker. We have a work by 'Monk' Lewis, two works by 'An Etonian' (the Etonian Shelley was a voracious consumer by contemporary accounts), works after Byron and the 'Author of Waverley', three works by Sarah Scudgell Wilkinson (a Gothic novelist in her own right) and a work on the notorious pirate 'Paul Jones', the eponymous subject of many stories. The titles of the present works too, fulfill the Sixpenny Shocker criteria: most consist of two parts (e.g. 'Salvator,Or, the Invisible Brothers', 'The Ruffian Boy; Or, the Castle of Waldemar' and 'Midnight Horrors, Or, the Bandit's Daughter'). There are, of course, the titles alluding to antiquity, the decayed castle, the outcast, the betrayed nobleman, the distressed damsel, the exotic and most other facets of plot that would be characterised as cliché. Present too, are four works with the exegetic titles précising the contents of the work and making a reading almost unnecessary. The popularity of these works ('the Gothic chapbook passed from hand to hand and was literally read to pieces', Montague Summers) and the cheap and flimsy nature of their production has ensured their rarity (it has also been suggested that this rarity is due to the fact that they were used as a cheap source of lavatory paper) and many of the works in this volume survive in only a small number of examples. Of the seventeen works in the present volume, almost all are of the utmost rarity and are traceable in only a handful of copies in specialist collections, while one ('The Fortunes of Nigel') features in no UK or North American collection. A full list of works with bibliographic details is available on request. 'No wonder that with pacing and tension s. Bookseller Inventory # 40703
