It was in view of this obscuring that the apostle of deportment, the Earl of Chesterfield, wrote to his son: Manners must adorn knowledge and smooth its way through the world. Like a great rough diamond, it may do very well in a closet by way of curiosity and also for its intrinsic value. l A contemporary of this high authority, Dr. Samuel Johnson, was able to controvert this dictum by demonstrating that knowledge can rise from obscurity without any adornment of manners, but polish is indispensable to the revelation of the latent beauties of the rough diamond. Indian tradition runs back romantically five thousand years to the first gleam of the Koh-i-nur or Mountain of Light in the serpench of a chief who fell in the great battle described 1 Letters of the Earl of Chesterfield, July 1, 1748. in the epic poem Mahabharata ; but nothing more solid than tradition sustains this tale. If it were true, it would demonstrate incontestably a very ancient proficiency in the art of grinding and polishing a rough Indian diamond, as the figure of the Koh-i-nur on page i shows, illustrating the appearance of this famous gem before it was recut by modern lapidary art to Examination of the Diamonds before and after Cutting. hold the foremost place in the jewels of the British crown.2 The Italian, Augusto Costellani, is the mouthpiece of another tradition, little firmer than a floating pipe-bubble, that a certain King Carna of India, who lived some three thousand years before the Christian era, possessed a diamond .

Excerpt: . . . typified the sovereignty transferred to his vicegerent, Perdiccas. Augustus Caesar cherished his seal engraved with a sphinx as a token of his divine authority. In the carving of cameos, precious stones with layers and veins were employed with great skill, bringing out contrasted effects, as where a face is shown in one color and the hair and dress of a figure in different colors. Sometimes certain colors were made typical. Thus Bacchus was carved in amethyst, the color of wine, while Neptune or nymphs of the sea were cut in aquamarine. Such surface polishing and engraving antedated, however, very far any grinding or faceting of the harder gems, and the intractable diamond especially, for uses of ornament.

Item Description: J.C. Lippincott & Co., Philadelphia, 1881. Soft Cover. Book Condition: Good. New Series Vol. 1 No. 3. What an interesting issue this is -- two stories caught my eye immediately. The first is the lead, a 15 page article about the diamond mines of South Africa replete with seven illustrations. The second thing is a seemingly small piece entitled My China Boys which was written by Fanny Stevenson, wife of Robert Louis Stevenson. In it she discusses her endeavors to hire Chinese household help. Do check out the ad on the left hand side of the second picture. You'll KNOW which one! :-) Magazine is tightly bound with clean pages and relatively little wear to paper cover. Minor soiling, a small tear to bottom of spine, and a tiny area of spine reglued.

It was a flaunt of determination to cut off every shred of political connection with the South African Republic, and hold possession of a slice of rich mining land with a Colony which, at some future time, if not immediately, Great Britain might be disposed to welcome and incorporate with her imperial cluster on the coast. If this hope was not openly avowed at first, it undoubtedly existed in the minds of many of the diggers, and no time was lost in communicating the situation to her Majestys High Commissioner at the Cape, Lieutenant General Hay. It is, however, unlikely that there was any confident expectation of the endurance of the new Republic founded on a gravel bank whose precious contents were fast fleeting, but the organization was set up as a handy resort, on the spur of the moment, to make an imposing show of resistance to the authority of the South African Republic, and with the idea of shunning the penalty of forcibly contesting the execution of the monopoly grant within a recognized district of its domain. Whatever legal unsoundness there may have been in the construction of the Klip-drift Republic, and in the notions of its framers, the shaky ship of state served its main purpose. The administration of the Transvaal Republic realized their grave blunder too late, and being humane and peace-loving men, refrained from any attempt to maintain their grant or their contested authority by force of arms. But they complained earnestly to the British Colonial authorities of the intrusion and illegal occupation and insubordination of the squatting adventurers on the Vaal. Meanwhile the diamond diggers did not concern themselves with the remote vexation of the Boer President and Council, but kept on ransacking the gravel. Early in th.
