About this Item

Oblong quarto. Unpaginated. [18], [21], [20], [23] leaves. Original printed wrappers. Volumes housed in a modern custom-made red cloth clamshell box, with gold lettering on spine. Striking collection of 40 tissue-guarded engravings depicting views of important places mentioned in scripture, and drawn from nature by Johann Martin Gernatz. Each plate measures appr. 6 1/2 x 9 2/8", and is accompanied with an original text by Gotthilf Heinrich von Schubert*. Due to a printer's error, the last plate mentioned in the first volume (Berg Tabor) is instead in the second volume. All plates are present, including the large 3-page fold-out panoramic view of Mount Sinai. Sporadic rubbing and minor creasing along edges of wrappers. Some closed tears to spines. Minor and sporadic foxing throughout. Fold-out detached but present. Text in German. Clamshell box in overall very good, wrappers in fair to good, interior in good to good+, plates in very good condition. * Gotthilf Heinrich von Schubert (1780-1860) was a "German physician and naturalist who began his studies with theology, but turned to medicine and established himself as a doctor in Altenburg, Saxe-Gotha-Altenburg. He soon gave up his practice however and devoted himself to research in Dresden. He gave renowned lectures on fringe science (animal magnetism, clairvoyance and dream), and in 1819 he occupied the chair in natural history in Erlangen where he studied botany, forestry, mineralogy and geognosy. In 1827 he moved for the last time, to Munich, where he was appointed professor; it was here that the highly popular and friendly Schubert found an embittered opponent in Lorenz Oken. Schubert aimed to create a religiously-grounded interpretation of the cosmos. His masterpiece, "Symbolism of Dreams" (1814) was one of the most famous books of its time, exercising influence over E. T. A. Hoffmann and even Sigmund Freud and C. G. Jung. Schubert advocated an ecumenical "awakened Christianity" which found evidence for God both in Nature and in the human soul. Synthesising the Bible with the philosophy of Schelling, he was a major figure in the "later Enlightenment". In his "History of the Soul" (1830), Schubert again attempted to fuse the philosophy of Herder and Schelling with the Christian tradition." (From Wikipedia). Bookseller Inventory # 18873
