He was well liked by his congregants, and his ministry flourished. In 1836 he published THE RELIGIOUS OPINIONS AND CHARACTER OF WASHINGTON, followed by a second edition in 1847. "Washington's Prayer" from McGuire's book was even printed as part of a Confederate broadside, "Thanksgiving for Victory" by Bishop William Mercer Green, Bishop of Mississippi during the Civil War.

        An den Naber mit Radt: "Sendschreiben an Sr. Hochgräflichen Excellenz den Herrn Grafen Friederich von Reventlau, Ritter von Dannebrog, Geheimen-Rath und Curator der Universität Kiel" Van enen Holstener. Unde HE was achter up deme Schepe un sleep up eynem Küssen.

      (Hamburg, Friedrich Perthes), 1805 - 22 S., 1 (w.) Bl. Türkisfarbene Glanzpapier-Rückenbroschur der Zeit. Erste Ausgabe. - Goedeke IV/1,981,35. - Frisches Exemplar der „Editio princeps“, daneben erschien eine 16seitige Übersetzung ins Hochdeutsche. Der vorliegenden Variante kommt darüber hinausgehende Bedeutung zu, da Claudius hier „als erster in der neueren Literatur das Niederdeutsche als Literatursprache“ (W. Platschek) verwendet. Wie kaum ein zweiter Autor seiner Zeit arbeitete Claudius souverän mit der „Sprache des Alltags, des Körperlichen, des Familiären und des Kindlichen“ (J.U.Fechner). So benutzt er hier das Plattdeutsche weniger zur Popularisierung der theologischen Aussagen, als um dem Gesagten den Anschein des Selbstverständli-chen, Altmodischen, schon immer Gültigen zu geben. Über den Anlass zu Claudius’ Flugschrift gibt Redlich (2, S. 468) an: „Der Naber mit Radt ist der Altonaer Pastor Nicolaus Funk, der im Februar Claudius`Freund, den Grafen Friedrich von Reventlow, damaliger Kurator der Universität Kiel, mit dem in der Überschrift zitierten Sendschreiben wegen der Entlassung des Kieler Professors Heinrich Müller aus seinem Amt als Leiter des Kieler Lehrerseminars und der Berufung von Hermann Daniel Hermes als Kirchenrat und Professor der Theologie angegriffen hatte“ (M.C. Sämmtliche Werke, München 1968, S. 1055). Die Schrift ist also im Zusammenhang der Auseinandersetzung konservativer Kreise um Claudius und Reventlow mit dem Erstarken des Rationalismus in der theologischen Lehre zu sehen. (Vgl. Rech.

        A most interesting Manuscript Commonplace book of Poems & Songs

      London -1855 1805 - Large 4to volume containing 65 pieces, some of several pages, all tipped into a scrapbook with no covers. The majority of the pieces were written by George Moore (c. 1795-1855), with some by his brother Thomas and daughter Caroline. They relate on the whole to family matters- birthdays, deaths or other events. One poem, 'Farewell to Hoxton' of September 1824 indicates the date the family moved from Hoxton to London's Warren Street, where Moore established himself as a successful manufacturer of soda water. The poems vary in length from single sheets to several pages and include one on the death of Queen Caroline. Other items of note: 'A Christmas Carol', 'Trip To Gloucestershire 1849' (poem), several original songs (two with mss. music), 'Acrostic on the Name of Moore', 'Blackheath Jaunts' (1831 poem), 'Sermon by a Benedictine Priest on Highwaymen', and an autograph letter written to be sent on the very first day of penny post by stamp (5 December 1839). The religious content of much of the material is partly attributable to the fact that Moore and his siblings were from the family of Archbishop Moore. Tragically, at the age of 60 George Moore became the first of two victims shot to death by one Emile Barthelemy whose escape from the scene of the first crime was interrupted by neighbour Charles Collard- whose was also shot dead. Barthelemy was apprehended by passers-by, handed over to police to be tried at the Old Bailey, and then hung at Newgate on 22 January 1855. This double murder shocked and outraged the public of the time, and was even given extensive coverage in the New York Times. Also contains a loose holograph transcription dated March 3rd 1855 of an obituary notice from 'the Gloucester paper' of 27 January 1855 which asserts that some of Moore's compositions were 'well known, being adapted to music'.

        African Memoranda: relative to an attempt to establish a British settlement on the Island of Bulama, on the western coast of Africa, in the year 1792. With a brief notice of the neighbouring tribes, soil production, etc. and some observations on the facility of colonizing that part of Africa with a view to cultivation; and the introduction of letters and religion to its inhabitants: but more particularly as the means of gradually abolishing African slavery.

      Baldwin London 1805 - First edition. 4to., [viii], xv, 500pp., WITH A NOTE BY DOROTHY STANLEY TO DEDICATION LEAF, large folding map, 2 full-page engraved plans, later red half morocco gilt by Mudie, top edge gilt, a fine copy. A wonderful note by Lady Stanley. The dedication leaf reads "To that man, of whatever nation, who, with equal means, shall do more towards the introduction of civilization, by cultivation and commerce, to the inhabitants of the western coast of Africa, than was effected by the enterprise of which the following sheets are descriptive; these memoranda are respectfully inscribed, by Philip Beaver." Lady Stanley has added, to the foot of the dedication, in pencil: "To Stanley. That Man! Dorothy Stanley 1910." Beaver made a considerable name for himself as a Captain in the Royal Navy, serving with distinction in the Mediterranean and the East Indies during the Napoleonic Wars. Prior to that, however, "he associated himself with a scheme for colonising the island of Bulama on the coast of Africa, near Sierra Leone. The whole affair seems to have been conducted without forethought or knowledge. The would-be settlers were, for the most part, idle and dissipated. Beaver found himself at sea in command of a vessel of 260 tons, with 65 men, 24 women, and 31 children, mostly sea-sick and all equally useless. When they landed, anything like discipline was unobtainable . Beaver endeavoured, by unceasing toil, to keep a little order and to promote a little industry; but the men were quite unfitted for the work and manner of life, and the greater number of them died. The miserable remnants of the party evacuated the island and went to Sierra Leone, whence Beaver obtained a passage to England." (DNB). Cox I, 398; Gay 3196; Brunet 28440.

        Bouquet de Roses, Anémones, Pensées, Nêles, Auricules, Jonquilles et Muguet

      Paris: Vilquin, 1805. An exquisite plate of a bouquet of various flowers from arguably the most beautiful botanical work ever produced: "a work of outstanding importance and interest." Contemporary with the work of Redouté, "Collection des Fleurs et des Fruits" is one of the earliest examples of stipple-engraved and colour-printed botanical illustration. Published in 12 cahiers (or parts) of four plates each, the work was compiled to assist designers of porcelain and fabric, with the plates often showing flowers grouped together, usually matched according to their flowering season. The greatest collection of flower books to be sold at auction in the 20th century was the de Belder collection, sold by Sotheby's in 1987. The catalogue was intended to reflect the uniqueness of the collection, and the cover illustration selected to represent the best of the best was an image from Prevost's "Collection des Fleurs et des Fruits." Dunthorne describes it as, "a work of outstanding importance and interest...issued for the specific purpose of maintaining the great French tradition for excellence of design and draughtsmanship. Perhaps no other prints are more worthy of carrying on the tradition of Jean Baptiste and van Spaendonck than these fine examples of Prévost. Whether bouquets or sprays of flowers or fruit, they possess a splendour and freshness amounting almost to fragrance, which is largely due to the quality of the colour printing" (Dunthorne, p. 33). Cf. Dunthorne p. 229; cf. Great Flower Books (1990), p. 127; cf. Nissen BBI 1568; cf. Pritzel 7332; cf. Stafleu & Cowan, TL2 , 8319. Stipple engraving, printed in colours and finished by hand by Ruotte. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling and a few minor foxing marks.

        Carey's American Atlas: Containing Twenty Maps and One Chart

      engraved for and published by Mathew Carey, Philadelphia 1805 - Expertly bound to style in diced russia over the original marbled paper-covered boards, flat spine in compartments divided by gilt double fillets, lettered in the second compartment An exceedingly rare issue of the first atlas of the United States published in America. This scarce atlas contains the same maps as the first edition of Carey's American Atlas of 1795. Following that first edition, the first atlas of the United States published in America, Carey printed from the same copper plates used for the 1796 first edition of his General Atlas , adding plate numbers to the upper right corners. Carey would re-issue his General Atlas in 1800 and 1804. Less well known, however, is the fact that he would also reissue the American Atlas in 1800 and 1805. Those issues of the American Atlas contained maps printed subsequent to the 1796 General Atlas , and therefore include the plate numbers from that work , thus explaining the haphazard numbering of the maps. Other than the addition of the plate numbers, the maps are from the same plates and appear to be identical to the first edition maps from the American Atlas of 1795. All the maps are printed on laid paper, and are preceded by a cancel letterpress title on wove. It seems likely, that Carey published this issue of the atlas from his remaining stock of the maps from the 1796 General Atlas with the addition of the cancel title. This would explain the presence of period hand-colouring on some of the maps in this copy, but not all. Although the title states the price of the atlas to be $5 plain and $6 colored, a contemporary ink inscription on the front pastedown suggests the atlas was sold for $4. A second edition of the American Atlas would be published in 1809, containing additional maps. The maps in the present atlas are as follows: 1. The British Posessions in North America . by Samuel Lewis 1794. Double page, hand coloured in outline 2. The Province of Maine . by Samuel Lewis, 1794. Hand coloured in outline 3. The State of New Hampshire . by Samuel Lewis, 1794. Double page, hand coloured in outline 4. Vermont From actual survey . by Amos Doolittle. Folding 5. The State of Massachusetts . by Samuel Lewis.

The later issues of the first edition of the American Atlas -- i.e. the issues of 1800 and 1805 (as here) -- are very rare.

        JACK AND JILL, and Old Dame Gill.

      [London:] J Evans & Sons, Long Lane, circa 1805. - JACK AND JILL, and Old Dame Gill. [London:] J Evans & Sons, Long Lane, circa 1805. Sixteen woodcut illustrations. 24mo, 16pp including self-wrappers, an untrimmed copy (edges creased or torn), loose as issued. Early printing of the first separate juvenile edition of this popular nursery rhyme, here extended to 15 verses. The rhyme first appeared in a shorter version in Mother Goose’s Melody (circa 1765), and was also sheet music in the 1790s. The first printing in our format was by “J Evans, No 42 Long Lane” circa 1800. Our version employs the same small woodcuts but with type reset (though both employ the long “s”) and numerous small variations between the two (e.g., the third line in the last verse in our copy reads “And put the place to right” rather than “To put the place to right all”). J Evans began publishing at Long Lane in the 1790s, and is known to have had business associations with the Marshalls (John Evans witnessed Richard Marshall’s will in 1799). See PML Be Merry & Wise #52. We have been unable to locate another copy of this ephemeral chapbook. OCLC lists two copies of a variant edition imprinted “T Evans, no 79 Long Lane” (Princeton and TPL); Osborne catalogue, p97, detailing their copy, describes verse on the title-page beneath the imprint (none present in our printing). Opie, Oxford Dictionary of Nursery Rhymes 254 cites the J Evans printing; but no Evans edition is listed in Opie’s Three Centuries of Nursery Rhymes and Poetry for Children (1973) exhibition catalogue.

        Discourses on Government

      New York, for Richard Lee, by Deare and Andrews,, 1805. Published from an original manuscript of the author. To which is added, an account of the author's life, and a copious index. 3 volumes, octavo. Early 20th-century brown half morocco, spines lettered gilt, low raised bands with decorative gilt rolls, marbled sides, spinkled edges. Frontispiece portrait to volume I, with half-titles. Small mark to lower corner of volume I, very light foxing, but an excellent copy for an American book of this date. An attractive American edition, published the same year as another at Philadelphia: surprisingly, COPAC locates only a single microform copy in British libraries. "Although long and sometimes repetitive the Discourses places Sidney alongside Milton as the master of republican eloquence. It is the power of its prose, as much as any aspect of its content, which helps to account for the work's exceptional subsequent impact in Britain, continental Europe, and America. Polemically a refutation of Sir Robert Filmer's Patriarcha (1680), the practical purpose of the Discourses is again to argue for armed resistance to oppression ... for subsequent influence in Enlightenment Britain, America, the United Provinces, Germany, and France he had no seventeenth-century rival except John Locke" (ODNB).

Collected out of Ledger-Books, Registers. 11 volumes. Printed for William Miller in London between 1805 and 1810. A Monumental Work by Francis Blomefield and continued after his death in 1752, by Charles Parkin.36 plates - many folding - they include maps of Norwich, Kings Lynn and 'Marshland Norfolk ', several of churches and monuments and also pedigrees and coats of arms. pp: 548;559;671;580;527;521;520;548;529;479;402 + 83 General index. Each volume has its own index. In original half calf over marbled boards with twin labels and raised bands. The marbling is worn and while the binding in each volume is tight and secure, in volumes 1,4 & 8, it has parted from the casing. There is some foxing mainly associated with the plates and prelims. The set has been collated and is complete. Walter Rye in his 'Index of Norfolk Topography' notes that 'Blomefield was a lucky man, in not only having great help in his work, but in having access to the vast collections made by Le Neve, Tanner, Martin, and others. He was indeed himself a very diligent collector and sorter of deeds and local information, but little more; .such of his work as he completed for the press before he died is.infinitely superior to that compiled almost entirely from his materials by The Rev. Charles Parkin, who did what little he did badly."

        A Natural History of Uncommon Birds, and of Some Other Rare and Undescribed Animals

      printed by C. Rickaby "for the author" [i.e. William Gardiner and Messrs. Robinson], London 1805 - [ With :] EDWARDS, George (1694-1773). Gleanings of Natural History, Exhibiting Figures of Quadrupeds, Birds, Insects, Plants, &c. London: printed by C. Rickaby for "the author" [i.e. William Gardiner and Messrs. Robinson], "1758-1760" [plates watermarked 1803-1805]. 3 parts bound in 2 volumes. Titles and text printed on wove or laid paper, one general title at the front of vol.I with engraved vignettes by Johann Sebastian Müller, letterpress English and French general title and part-titles, text in English and French in double columns, translated by J. du Plessis and Edmond Barker. 1 uncoloured engraved portrait of the author by Miller after "Dandridg," 152 etched plates (printed on wove or laid paper) all finely hand-coloured, by and after Edwards and others. Together 4 volumes. Quarto (11 1/2 x 9 1/4 inches). Uniform contemporary red straight-grained morocco, covers with border of a triple gilt fillet, spines in six compartments with double raised bands, the bands highlighted with gilt fillets and roll tools, lettered in the second and fourth compartments, gilt turn-ins, gilt edges. Provenance : George Savile Foljambe (1800-1869, Osberton Hall, Nottinghamshire, England, armorial bookplate). A spectacular set of "one of the most important of all bird books, both as a fine bird book and a work of ornithology" (Fine Bird Books). This issue, bound circa 1815, benefits greatly from being published at a time when two book-arts were at a high point: the art of hand-colouring was at its most sophisticated and the design and execution of bindings was equally exceptional. The colouring in this issue has the clear jewel-like quality that is a feature of the work of the best colourists of the Regency period. The same period also produced some of best binders since the 17th-century Restoration masters and the present set is a delightfully-understated example of the kind of craftsmanship of which they were capable. Edwards "has been well described as an unscientific but very accurate describer and painter of animal life, and his writings will always remain of paramount authority, from the faithfulness of his description of many new birds, subsequently incorporated in the Linnaean System. He had, says Swainson, the simplicity and piety of Izaac Walton, and may be looked upon as one of our greatest worthies. He retired about 1764 to Plaistow, died July 23, 1773" (Mullens and Swann p.194). "Through the influence of Sir Hans Sloane, [Edwards] was chosen Librarian to the Royal College of Physicians . Almost immediately after he was appointed . Edwards commenced the preparation of a series of coloured drawings of animals and birds, used later to illustrate [the present work]; for these he was awarded the Gold Medal of the Royal Society and subsequently elected a Fellow" (Lisney p.127). The work was quite successful and went through a number of transformations whilst under Edwards' control, including the issuing of a French text edition. Shortly after he retired in 1769 he sold "to Mr. James Robson, Bookseller . all the remaining copies of my Natural History . coloured under my immediate inspection, together with all my copper-plates, letter-press, and every article in my possession relative to it . and that my labours may be handed down to posterity with integrity, truth, and exactness, I have delivered into his hands a complete set of plates, highly coloured by myself, as a standard to those Artists who may be employed in colouring them for the future" (George Edwards, declaration quoted in Robson's Some Memoirs? of George Edwards , dated May Ist, 1769).

      John Cary, London 1805 - Detailed and important first state John Cary?s map of the American Midwest and the Old Northwest, great lakes regions as well as portions of the Eastern Seaboard and Canada , from his New Universal Atlas. The various frontier forts are shown, as are Indian villages, white settlements, etc. It includes numerous interesting notations particularly relating to navigation in the Great Lakes and portages throughout the region. The western boundary of the six Indian nations is shown to be a creek in western New York. An Indian boundary line by the treaty under General Wayne 1795 cuts through Ohio from St. Lawrence from Fort Recovery in Indiana territory and then south to the border to Kentucky. In Kentucky is a note "this colony was first discovered by Js. Macbride & others in the year 1754." Colonel D. Boon explored in 1769 and with his family and five others began the first settlement in 1773.When we compare this copy of 1805 to a later edition of the same map dated 1819, one notices the gradual transformation of the Western Territory into the states of Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Michigan and the Northwestern Terriotry."

        Memoria sobre las disposiciones tomadas por el gobierno para introducir en España el método de fumigar y purificar la atmósfera de Guiton de Morveau, experimentos hechos con este motivo, y algunas otras noticias que prueban el poder desinfectante de los acidos minerales, y las oportunas providencias que ha dado el Excmo. Señor Generalisimo Principe de la Paz, con el fin de evitar los progresos del contagio de la fiebre amarilla, y su reproduccion.

      Madrid, Imprenta Real, 1805. - 92, 234 pp., 8 engraved folding plates, 3 folding tables. 4°, contemporary full crimson morocco (slight rubbing at hinges and in center of upper cover), with the binder's tag on the front pastedown of Pasqual Carsi y Vidal, Madrid (see below). Gilt roll-tooled border, spine gilt, all edges gilt, silk ribbon place marker. Light marginal foxing on a few plates and slight soiling at head of a few leaves, but overall very fine. Bookplate of D. Maria Cristina, Queen of Spain. ---- FIRST EDITION of this extensive report on the earliest government program of fumigation in Spain: a major public health initiative undertaken in an attempt to stop the spread of yellow fever. As recounted in the @Memória (pp. 1-92), after yellow fever broke out in Malaga in 1804, Prime Minister Manuel Godoy (1792-97 and 1801-08) quickly established a cordon sanitaire around Andalucia, Murcia, and Valencia. Then he sent to Paris for the latest in fumigation equipment and set Spanish engineers to producing copies. There was some resistance to using fumigation, results to that point having been inconclusive. Godoy instructed a number of physicians and scientists to test Morveau's method for its effect on people, animals and clothing when various mineral acids were used (sulphuric, nitric, hydrochloric). The @Memória details the results of these tests and describes the quarantine measures that were taken when fumigation alone was deemed insufficient. The @Memoria is followed by 25 @documentos justificativos, which include detailed descriptions of the fumigation apparatus, instructions for use, reports on the effects of fumigation, a much-debated trial run in Cartagena, descriptions of other methods of fumigation, and an account of all known cases of yellow fever in 1804-1805 in Andalucía, Valencia, and Murcia. The plates that accompany the documents illustrate the apparatus and its use for fumigating clothing and people, as well as the set-up of a quarantine hospital. Three large folding tables provide a sample of how a town (in this case Cartagena) could be divided into districts for purposes of fumigation; statistics on the outcome of yellow fever in patients at the hospital in Antiguones; and statistics on the spread and effects of the yellow fever in 1804-1805 in Andalucia, Valencia, and Murcia. Given that in 5 months, 45,000 people died, it is no surprise that Godoy was extremely eager to curb the disease. Severe outbreaks of yellow fever occurred throughout the nineteenth century, until mosquitos were identified as the disease vector in the 1880s and attention was shifted to eradicating them.Louis-Bernard Guyton de Morveau (1737-1816), a French chemist, is credited with producing the first systematic method of chemical nomenclature. He was among the founders of the Ecole Polytechnique, where he taught mineralogy. According to the @Memoria, while this volume was in press (awaiting completion of the engraved plates), a third edition of Morveau's work on fumigation appeared. However, we have not been able to locate any edition in OCLC.The binder Pasqual Carsí y Vidal, who was active in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth century, worked in Madrid under D. Carlos III, D. Carlos IV and D. Fernando VII and was among the most noted binders of that period. He developed a neoclassical style influenced by his trip to England at D. Carlos III's expense. From 1803 he led an atelier whose students included Manuel Cobo. Carsí y Vidal was Encuadernador de Cámara from 1799, Librero de Cámara in 1806, and principal binder for Principe D. Fernando beginning in 1807. After D. Fernando VII returned to Madrid following the Napoleonic invasion, Carsí was also Jefe del Obrador de Encuadernaciones de la Imprenta Real.D. Maria Christina (1806-1878), whose bookplate is on the pastedown, was the fourth and final wife of D. Fernando VII, and his niece. She is also known as Maria Christina Bourbon of the Two Sicilies, and was queen consort of Spain from 1829 until her husband' [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Considerations sur quelques faits applicables a la theorie du globe, observes par M. Peron dans son voyage aux Terres australes, et sur quelques questions geologiques qui naissent de la connoissance de ces faits

      Paris:: Levrault, Schoell et Cie,. 1805.. Paperback. Very good. A very important early analysis of the geological ramifications of discoveries of fossil marine animals at high elevations by Francois Peron during the Baudin expedition to the "terres australes" from 1801 to 1803. The analysis here is made by Jean Baptiste Lamarck, an important evolutionary biologist, thirty years before Charles Darwin's speculations on the age of the earth based on marine fossils he found at high elevations in the Peruvian Andes. The important marine fossils ("debris precieux d'animaux marins") referred to in this analysis were found by Francois Auguste Peron as zoologist on Nicolas Baudin's expedition to Australia between 1801 and 1803. Peron became the sole zoologist of the expedition and collected over 100,000 zoological specimens. Peron cites the presence of marine life at high elevations in "terre de Diemen", "la Nouvelle Hollande et de l'ile de Timor". Lamarck offers his own theories for the presence of the marine fossils, after drawing some conclusions: 1. That all the continents were once covered by the sea; 2. That it is not likely that the sea level dropped, thus leaving marine fossils at high elevations; and 3. That it is even less likely that the mountains were somehow thrust up out of the sea. Lamarck offers a theory for what he calls the instability of climates, which is the idea that elevations are somehow naturally higher at the equator and are worn down as land moves towards the poles, and that the center of gravity of the globe has changed, which resulted in a change in the tilt of the earth's axis, thus displacing the seas. Lamarck also notes discoveries of marine fossils in France, near Paris, which were identical to living animals found by Captain Cook in his visit to Tonga: "cerithium hexagonum ... et cerithium serratum... les memes especes que le capitaine Cook , dans ses voyages, a rencontrees vivantes dans la mer du Sud, a l'ile des Amis". Annales du Museum d'Histoire Naturelle, Tome Sixieme, Trente-Unieme Cahier: 4to, numbered pp 26 - 52, unopened. Blue paper wraps with title in black at front cover with some small margin tears, ads at rear cover. Paper wraps very slightly ruffled at edges, o/w very good.

        Collection des Fleurs et des Fruits

      Paris: Chez Vilquin, 1805. Folio (21 x 14 inches). 48 stipple-engraved plates printed in color and finished by hand, by Louis Charles Ruotte (one by Chapponnier) after drawings by Prevost of flowers and fruit (some light spotting). Contemporary French half red morocco, speckled paper boards, uncut (extremities scuffed). First edition, bound from the original parts. One of the earliest examples of stipple-engraving used to create a grainy effect with a series of dots or flecks using a finely-toothed "roulette" or wheel. Jean Louis Prevost was a successful and widely renowned flower painter, respected both for his watercolor and oil paintings and for his engraved works. His paintings were consistently exhibited in the Paris Salon, and his original watercolors served as models for a series of exquisite color plate botanical books. His "Collection des Fleurs et des Fruits" is one of the greatest French flower books of the early nineteenth century. Unlike Redoute, his great contemporary, Prevost's intention with his works was not primarily scientific. His great Collection . . . was intended as a reference work for china and fabric pattern designers. Though not primarily a botanist, all of Prevost's works were based on careful observation of specimens. Dunthorne 229; "Great Flower Books", p.71; Nissen 1568; Stafleu & Cowan TL2 8319. Catalogue description prepared for and on behalf of Arder Galleries by Kate Hunter.. Book.
