About this Item: ReInk Books, 2017. Softcover. Condition: NEW. Reprinted from 1912 edition. Language: eng. NO changes have been made to the original text. This is NOT a retyped or an ocr'd reprint. Illustrations, Index, if any, are included in black and white. Each page is checked manually before printing. As this reprint is from very old book, there could be some missing or flawed pages, but we always try to make the book as complete as possible. Fold-outs, if any, are not part of the book. If the original book was published in multiple volumes then this reprint is of only one volume, not the whole set. This paperback book is SEWN, where the book block is actually sewn (smythe sewn/section sewn) with thread before binding which results in a more durable type of paperback binding. It can also be open wide. The pages will not fall out and will be around for a lot longer than normal paperbacks. This print on demand book is printed on high quality acid-free paper. Original Publisher: Washington : Government Printing Office 14 pages. Seller Inventory # 453469533

A voyage towards the North Pole undertaken: PHIPPS, Constantine John.

About this Item: ESTC T152604; Hill 1351; Sabin 62572; cf. Savours, '"A very interesting point in geography': the 1773 Phipps expedition towards the North Pole", in: Arctic XXXVII (December 1984), no. 4, pp. 402-428. First edition of Phipps's account of his expedition to the Arctic. The expedition with the ships Racehorse and Carcass sailed north by way of the Shetlands, reaching the coast of Spitsbergen on 29 June 1773. They passed Magdalena Hoek in early July, but were unable to penetrate the pack ice. A second attempt, reaching 80°37' N latitude, also failed. Notwithstanding this failure, the crew was successful in making numerous scientific observations and discovering several new species of animals, among them the ivory gull (Pugophilu eburnea). "Phipps was also incidentally the first to give an adequate description of the polar bear (Thalarctos maritimus Phipps) and to give it a scientific binominal" (Savours). The crew included the future Admiral Horatio Nelson as midshipman and Olaudah Equiano, a former slave whose autobiography would cause a huge sensation.The first couple leaves slightly soiled in the upper margins, a small and faint waterstain in the last 50 leaves, some occasional spots and a couple minor smudges, otherwise in very good condition, with large margins. The binding with restorations along the extremities and rebacked. A lovely and well illustrated account of an important arctic voyage. Seller Inventory # I7CAFFYCTY7W

About this Item: Cf. Andreas Klein, Johann Georg Jacobi (2012), 359; Nagler VIII, pp. 555-558; Thieme & Becker XXXIII, p. 279. Skilfully executed pen and ink drawing by the notable Swiss draughtsman Johann Heinrich Lips (1758-1817), showing a naval officer on a tropical beach on the Coromandel Coast, being welcomed by four half-naked local women with their five children. In the background are three native men in a small rowing boat touching the beach. The present drawing was made for an illustration in Johann Georg Jacobi's Iris. Ein Taschenbuch für 1804 to accompany a text by Franz Xaver Schnetzler titled "Le Vaillant und Mungo Park" (pp. 157-184). The illustration was engraved by Lips himself and contains, besides the caption "Die Küste von Coromandel", the subtitle "Au seiner französischen Handschrift", suggesting the drawing was made after one found in a French manuscript.Slightly browned along the edges of the paper (covered by the passepartout) and a few tiny specks. Otherwise in very good condition. Seller Inventory # 68GBF4ZB13VJ

Caerte en omlooper van Prins Willem Polder.: GERSOM, Gerrit van.

About this Item: Extraordinary manuscript atlas and register of land ownership for the "Gecombineerde Prins Willem Polder" (combined Prince William polder) in Zeeuws-Vlaanderen (the parts of Flanders situated in the province of Zeeland in the Dutch Republic), north and west of the town of Oostburg, in the southwest corner of the Netherlands. It documents the individual plots of land within the polder and records the owners who acquired each plot when the polder was first laid out in 1650 and 1651, and the owners in 1723. Atlases of this type were drawn up by land-owning corporations or polder authorities for the proper administration of land taxes, and provide one of the most complete and accurate records of land ownership. They generally remained in the archives of the institutions until destroyed or turned over to the governmental archives, so that they rarely come on the market. The present atlas of the Generale Prins Willempolder in Zeeland is therefore an extremely rare primary source for the social, economic and topographic history of the region, the history of the Dutch battle against the sea and the genealogy of the land owners. It was compiled by Gerrit van Gersom, then dijkgraaf (the official charged with oversite of a polder and its dikes) for the Prins Willempolder.Most of the first map is detached and several have tears, creases or tattered edges, sometimes crudely repaired, but most remain in good or very good condition. The paperboard core of the front board is lost, leaving the limp sheepskin, and the binding is soiled and tattered, with some tears, chips and broken sewing supports. An essential primary source for the history, topography and genealogy of the Prins Willempolder in Zeeuws-Vlaanderen, in the southwest corner of the Netherlands, near the coast and the Belgian border.

Binding title:] Egypten.[Cairo & Istanbul, ca. 1870-1880].: BÉCHARD, Henri and

About this Item: Cf. N. Perez, Focus East (1988); G. Saretzky, History of photography (online). An extensive set of stunning photographs of Egypt by two of the most distinguished photographers of the Islamic world: Henri Béchard and Pascal Sebah. The collection is very well preserved and unusual in its scope. The volumes are thematically divided: the first album shows Cairo and daily life in the city, the second shows antiquities outside the city (pyramids, temples, funeral chambers, hieroglyphics etc.), and the third shows cities other than Cairo, e.g. Karnak, Louqsor, Bal el Molouk, Thebes, Edfou, Assouan, etc., along with ruins and other sites from those places. The photographs therefore not only show us the famous views and antiquities, but also give an acute portrayal of Egypt as a country and its everyday life at the time, which is not common in the usual touristic photo albums.Henri Béchard (active 1870-1880) was awarded the Gold medal at the Universal Exposition in 1878. His studio was in the Ezbekiyeh Gardens, Cairo. "His work is distinguished by the superb quality of his prints and the generally spectacular presentation of even the most common sites, such as the pyramids. His studies of people and costumes are even more interesting and point to a very personal involvement of the photographer in the life and customs of the country. His cityscapes and urban scenes were mostly taken from unusual angles in an attempt to cope with the narrow and confined spaces" (Perez). Pascal Sebah (1823-1886) was a leading photographer based in Constantinople, who catered to the Western European interest in the exotic "Orient" and the growing numbers of tourists visiting the Islamic world who wished to take home images of the city, ancient ruins in the surrounding area, portraits, and local people in traditional costumes. "Sebah rose to prominence because of his well-organized compositions, careful lighting, effective posing, attractive models, great attention to detail, and for the excellent print quality" ( Saretzky ).Only an occasional speck on the album leaves, otherwise a fine copy, with the photographs of a very high quality. The bindings also fine, only the boxes have some very minor wear along the extremities. Seller Inventory # J3MADCNJ5OE4
