        Allgemeine Uebersicht der Weltgeschichte von den aeltesten Zeiten bis auf gegenwärtige in Strömen und Flüßen dargestellt von Friedrich Strass.

      Augsburg, V. Zanna et Comp., [1830]. - Copper engraving with full original colour, in 3 unjoined sheets. (Very good condition, lovely original colour, mild toning, small nicks in blank margins and light stains in lower area). Each sheet 47 × 71 cm. A very rare edition of Friedrich Strass's large and resplendently coloured time chart depicting the inter-connecting streams of the histories of different World civilizations and nations from 3984 BC up to 1830.This large and colourful time chart employs ingenious visual methods to graphically illustrate historical events. The history of the World is presented as the interwoven streams featuring the stories of its great civilizations / nations weave their way down the time chart like the paths of streams.History is shown to commence with Genesis, which is shown here to have occurred in 3984 BC, a date close to that asserted by the Ussher Chronology. This theory as to the timing of Genesis (which was said to have occurred in 4004 BC) was devised by James Ussher (1581-1656), the Archbishop of Armagh and the Primate of All Ireland (in office between 1625-1656), and is based on his "literal reading" of the Bible. The Ussher Chronology gained widespread popularity in certain Protestant circles during the 19thCentury. The time line starts at the top of the composition with the great ancient civilizations, namely, the Italians; Greeks; Asia Minor; Assyrians; Syrians; Phoenicians; Jews; Egyptians and the Chinese. Down the various streams are plotted the names and dates of different eras and rulers. The stream on the furthest right details major world events. Part way down, the civilizations in the Western and Mediterranean world converge into the ‚Roman Empire', before splintering again into various new entities. The streams then continue to weave, combine and separate, mitigated by the interconnecting streams of major events and characters, towards the bottom of the time line, where the individual streams are represented by the nations and regions of Denmark; Sweden; Russia; the German States; Austria; Holland; Switzerland; France; the Italian States; States of the Church (Papal States); Spain; Great Britain; Greece; Persia; and China. William Bell, who issued his own version of the time chart in London in 1849, described the merits of Strass's conception to the study of history:"However natural it may be to assist the perspective faculty, in its assumption of abstract time, by the idea of a line . it is astonishing that . the image of a Stream should not have presented itself to any one . The expressions of gliding, and rolling on; or of a rapid current, applied to time, are equally familiar to us with those of long and short. Neither does it require any great discernment to trace . in the rise and fall of empire, an allusion to the source of a river, and to the increasing rapidity of a current, in proportion with the declivity of their channels towards the engulfing ocean. Nay, the metaphor . gives greater liveliness to the ideas, and impresses events more forcibly upon the mind, that the stiff regularity of the straight line. It diversified power likewise of separating the various currents into subordinate branches, or of uniting them into one vast ocean of power . tends to render the idea by its beauty more attractive, by tis simplicity more perspicuous, and by its resemblance more consistent." (Rosenberg & Grafton, pp.143 and 147). The present time chart is derived from Friedrich Strass's exceedingly rare Strom der Zeiten (‚Stream of Time') (1804). Strass's work proved to be highly influential and was widely copied in both Europe and America, and translated into several languages, including Russian. All of the large German editions are very rare, and the present example, in unjoined sheets with resplendent original colour, is an especially fine example. Cf. OCLC (Re: 1818 Zanna ed.): 165398011.

Kniestück sehend im Krönungsornat von Frankreich, "Napoleon",.

      - Stahlstich v. Schuler & Metzeroth n. Gerard b. (Inst. Bibl. excud.), um 1830, 34 x 27,5 (H) - Blattgr. 60,5 x 46 cm Napoleon erwies sich als ein militärisches Talent. Vor allem die Feldzüge in Italien und in Ägypten machten ihn populär und zu einem politischen Hoffnungsträger. Dies ermöglichte ihm, durch den Staatsstreich vom 18. Brumaire die Macht in Frankreich zu übernehmen, die ihn letztendlich zum Kaiser der Franzosen werden ließ. Durch verschiedene Reformen, z. B. dem Code Civil, hat Napoleon die staatlichen Strukturen Frankreichs bis in die Gegenwart hinein geprägt. Außenpolitisch errang er zeitweise die Herrschaft über weite Teile Kontinentaleuropas. Der katastrophale Ausgang des Feldzugs gegen Russland führte zum Sturz Napoleons. Nach einer kurzen Phase der Verbannung auf Elba kehrte er für hundert Tage an die Macht zurück. In der Schlacht bei Waterloo wurde er endgültig besiegt und zuletzt bis zu seinem Lebensende auf die Insel St. Helena verbannt. - Sehr schönes großes und sauberes Blatt. - Nagler No.1.

        Rotterdam - gezicht vanaf de Maas.

      LEVE DE ROTTERDAMSCHE SCHUTTERIJ! - "Het vertrek der Veldschutterij van Rotterdam, waaronder een groot aantal vrijwilligers, in het jaar 1830"Kleurenlithografie vervaardigd door Houtman te Utrecht naar het ontwerp van Quirijn Maurits Rudolf Ver Huell, los uitgegeven in oktober 1830 door W.J. van Oosterzee te Rotterdam. Afm. ca. 58 x 84 cm. In de tijd van het ontstaan van deze prent had Rotterdam een schutterij waarin mannelijke ingezetenen tussen 18 en 50 Jaar verplicht waren dienst te doen. Het was een soort burgerwacht om de stad te beschermen bij een aanval en de orde te handhaven bij oproer of brand. Van maart tot oktober werd twee keer per maand op de Beurs geëxerceerd, eens in het jaar werd er een algemene wapenschouwing gehouden op de Boompjes. In 1830 kwam de Belgische Opstand, de Zuidelijke Nederlanden dreigen zich af te splitsen. Een golf van vaderlandsliefde ging door de Nederlanden, zowel in de Noordelijk als de Zuidelijke. Tal van schutters meldden zich aan, ook uit Rotterdam. Per (stoom)boot vertrokken ze naar Antwerpen en werden daarbij enthousiast uitgeleide gedaan. Het mag echter niet baten, België wordt uiteindelijk onafhankelijk. Ver Huell (1787- 1860) was zee-officier en later directeur van de Marinewerf te Rotterdam. Hij was actief als tekenaar en auteur van reisverhalen en biografieën. Hij was een van de oprichters van de Rotterdamse Koninklijke Jachtclub, waar later het Etnografische en het Maritiem Museum aldaar uit zijn voortgekomen. Het leeuwendeel van de werk van Ver Huell bevindt zich in het Gemeente Museum te Arnhem en het Maritiem Museum. Grote, vroege, los uitgegeven lithografieën zijn bijzonder zeldzaam. Van dit schitterende gezicht op de stad zijn slechts enkele exemplaren bewaard gebleven. Prijs: € 4.950,- (BTW margeregeling, incl. lijst).

        Shakers near Lebanon State of N York. Their Mode of Worship. Drawn from Life.

      N.p.: n.p., , nd [ca. 1830]. . Stipple line engraving, hand colored in browns and blues; image 8 3/4 x 12 3/4 inches, on a sheet 14 x 16 inches. While it bears no indication of artist, engraver, or publisher, it is the version thought by scholar Robert P. Emlen likely to be the first among some 18 versions of this scene that appeared during the 19th century. Its technique, caption, barrel-vaulted ceiling, treeless windows, and visitors' clothing match that one. There was considerable fascination with Shaker ways at the time, and this was the first published image showing a facet of Shaker life. It remained as popular as any, but, despite that, it is surprisingly scarce. See Emlen's "The Shaker Dance Prints," in Imprint, v. 17, no. 2, autumn 1992. A very good copy with wide margins, removed from board by a paper restorer, washed, and reinforced; paper slightly darkened and rubbed in the margins. (581)

        Small archive, comprising correspondence with Humboldt regarding barometric pressure on the Uranie voyage

      Paris: circa, 1830. A little browning of the bottom edge, very good condition overall.. Archive of manuscripts, including drafts, notes and various tables, most with the Archives de Laage stamp, several of the manuscripts in Freycinet's hand, other in different hands but all with evidence of Freycinet's careful attention (and most including his personal annotations); see catalogue note for detail. Louis de Freycinet's personal archive of material relating to his correspondence with Alexander von Humboldt on the question of the effect of barometric pressure on observations made during the Uranie voyage. It is evidence of the exchange of information between the eminent mariner and one of the prominent figures of nineteenth century Continental science. This group of 11 manuscripts, ranging from brief notes right through to substantial sets of tables of observations, gives an insight into the technical aspects of maritime observations with which Freycinet was obsessed throughout his life, and particularly around 1830 when he was working closely with the French Ministry of the Marine. Much of the material relates to drafts and extracts of his correspondence with Humboldt, who had settled in Berlin in 1827 after a stint in Paris when he clearly became acquainted with Freycinet. It was during this time that Humboldt began his serious work on subjects like the question of the Earth's magnetism and its effects, subjects dear to the heart of Freycinet, and which led to an interesting although now largely scattered correspondence between the two men (making these notes and drafts a particularly interesting discovery).A calendar of the manuscripts:1. 'Extrait d'une lettre de Mr. de Humboldt'. Single sheet, 285 x 205 mm., calculations. Unknown hand with Freycinet notes. On the observations of Erman (particularly as regards Kamchatka).2. 'Extrait d'une le lettre de Mr. Alexandre de Humboldt à Mr. Louis de Freycinet'. One page manuscript, 300 x 210 mm., unknown hand with Freycinet notes. Second version of previous letter.3.

Comparing the results of the Uranie voyage with those of Captain Beechey (presumably from the published account of Beechey, 1831).5. 'Réponse de Mr. de Freycinet à Mr. de Humboldt'. Single page manuscript, 285 x 210 mm. Sheet with 7 numbered sets of measurements, relating to the previous table.6. 'Corrections des hauteurs des baromètres de l'Uranie…'.

[Undated] - See Comments: Dark Green Blind Stamped Brds. - Further information: by Thomas Dugdale, antiquarian, assisted by William Burnett, civil engineer. General Note: Plates show places of interest. An excellent set of this work. Historical, Entertaining & Commercial Alphabetically arranged by Thomas Dugdale. Eleven Volumes; with a full set of especially commissioned Archer maps, 300 Etchings of towns, buildings, monuments, people, views. Dugdale's England and Wales delineated. Publication Date: [1830?-] . Illustration: Frontispiece to each volume. Example entry for ABBOTS BROMLEY. The hobby-horse dance, an ancient custom, was observed here till the civil war.--Ten or twelve of the dancers carried, on their shoulders, deers' heads, painted with the arms of Paget, Bagot, and Welles, to whom the chief property of the town belonged. The horns yet hang up in the church, but the custom is now discontinued. The parish includes Bromley, Bagot's liberty, and Bromley Hurst township. Bagot's park is the deer-park of Lord Bagot, whose seat is at Blithefield. Market, Tuesday-Fairs, Tuesday before Mid-lent Sunday, May 22, September 4, for horses and horned cattle." This set has the advantage of having been professionally resewn, recased using their original boards and they also have new endpapers.This ensures that they are not only preserved but that they now present extremely well. The publication is notorious for breaking and cracking, but I felt that such an interesting and rather uncommon complete set merited a little expenditure. Pages are clean, but there is evidence of sporadic foxing, occasional marks, but this is very good set indeed. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall [ Location: g5 ]. Hardcover. Very Good. 8vo.

        Album romantique, vers 1830.

      - In-8 oblong (146*225mm), 110p environ. Album mosaïqué romantique comme cela s'est beaucoup fait à l'époque, donnant parfois lieu à de superbes albums amicorum. Ici, l'album est offert le 12 avril 1833 par une certaine A. Garin à une compagne, comme l'indique le petit billet fleurit épinglé sur la première page. Seules sept pages sont écrites, reprenants des poèmes et citations sur l'Amitié, reprenant notamment le couplet sur l'Amitié de Desmaris (L'Honnête Homme, act. II, sc.II) et la fable de La Fontaine, les deux Pigeons. Une autre page à la suite comporte un dessin assez naïf. Reliure plein maroquin havane, importante plaque mosaïquée rouge, vert, vert olive et aubergine, tranches dorées. Papier du cahier central légèrement décalé et de couleur différente (mélange de papiers marrons et bleus). Petits frottis aux coins, mors légèrement craquelés, une page découpée. Reliure non signée est de Germain-Simier. La plaque ayant servi pour la reliure est la même que l'on retrouve sur le Racine ayant appartenu à Descamps-Scrive, dans une reliure signée de Descamps-Scrive (2e vente, n°98, reproduit en page 75 du catalogue).

        Smugglers Attacked

      London: Published by J. Moore, at his Frame Manufactory 1 West Street, St. Martin's Lane, 1830. Colour-printed aquatint. Printed on thick wove paper. In good condition with the exception of some matt staining along the edges of the sheet and some minor foxing in the margins. Image size: 20 7/8 x 16 15/16 inches. A dramatic print depicting smugglers being apprehended by the police, after a painting by the celebrated English sporting artist, S. J. E. Jones. This impressive aquatint by Charles Hunt is after a painting by the celebrated sporting artist Samuel John Egbert Jones. Jones was active in London at mid-century and made a name for himself as a painter of sporting subjects. He was a regular exhibitor at the Royal Academy and the British Institution, and many of his fine works were published and engraved for the London print shops. The painting takes as its subject a poem by the noted London playwright, William Thomas Moncrieff. As with many English genre paintings at this period, the work is moralistic in tone and content. Unlawful behavior receives its just recompense and wrong doings never go unnoticed. The scene explodes with drama as a group of policemen break in on a band of smugglers, who desperately attempt to escape. This is a wonderful example of Jones' superb work and a fascinating image which speaks to the taste and temperament of the age.

      Philadelphia: A. Finley, 1830. Folding pocket map engraved by Young & Delleker, full contemporary hand-colouring. Folds into publisher's roan covers, covers bordered in blind, upper cover titled in gilt, publisher's ad on the inside front pastedown. (Minor separations at intersecting folds as usual). Rare separately-issued Finley pocket map of Tennessee. Following the initial publications of both his New General Atlas and New American Atlas , Finley issued pocket map versions of many of his maps from those important early American atlases. This map of Tennessee appears to be printed from the same plate as his map of Tennessee which appeared in Finley's New General Atlas of 1831, with the addition of rivers and place names to the neighboring states not found in early editions of the New General Atlas , The map was certainly issued before 1835, as neither Benton nor Lauderdale counties appear on the map. Although diminutive in size, the map still shows good detail, including principal towns, roads, and rivers, and with each county identified. In the southeast corner of the state, a large area of Cherokee lands is depicted. Little is known of Anthony Finley, other than his published work 'but he was probably born around 1790. Judging from contributors to his atlases, he apparently moved in the same Philadelphia circles of engravers and compilers as other contemporary publishers' (Ristow, p.268). Not in Phillips, A List of Maps of America or Rumsey.

      Tokyo 1830, Egawa Sentaro [carver]. Single sheet woodblock-. printed map, 48 x 33.5 cm., very good, two cinnabar collect-. or's seals Kurita Genji + another ulnread, surface a bit old. dusty, seven small old mended worm holes, else a solid copy.. A SUPERB WOODCUT MAP OF JAPAN'S "BANISHMENT ISLAND" & GOLD This is a lovely, charming and complete "birds's eye view" perspective of Sado Island. This is the only map published during the Edo period of Sado Island, located off the coast of Echigo province. Sado island was known for both its large gold reserves and prison-labor gold mines and as an island for criminals & political exiles from the mainland. * A fascinating experiment with sociology, Sado Island was the traditional place for banishment of political opponents as well as convicted criminals during the Tokugawa period. These banished people were sent to live on Sado in a "free" society, however, return was never possible. All persons sent there were given a small pittance of money and were then banished for life. Both men, women and children were sent to Sado, where an alternative society continued. Many of these unfortunates worked as slave-like labor in the harsh and brutal gold mines. * This excellent map, was drawn in a bird's-eye view type of unique Japanese perspective and shows the whole island in much and fine detail. Citing the names of all mountains, towns, villages, bays, harbors, urban and suburban areas named. A large number of fishing and other vessels are at anchor in the various small harbors & bays. At the center and is the highest mountain peak called "Kinbei Zan" or "Northern Gold Mountain," the cite of the Sado gold mines. * Per the N.Y.P.L. item cited below, "A major gold mine of this period was located on Sado, an island in the Japan Sea, which formerly served as a prison. By the Shogun's order, Okubo Choan, the powerful governor of Sado, undertook the digging of a large complex of gold and silver mines. A labor force of ex-prisoners dug three hundred shafts in order to create an underground labyrinth almost one mile long. SADO KINZAN NO ZU, two painted scrolls done in the mid-19th century, depicts the different types of work that took place in the Sado mines...Under the Tokugawa government the Sado mines flourished. During the 17th century the mines supported a population of over 100,000 workers and camp followers and plentifully enriched the coffers of the Shogun." * Nicely woodblock printed on a large single-sheet of handmade mulberry paper, suitable for framing and library display. The work is exceptionally R A R E and seldom found on the market. Very few wood cut prints were ever printed on such a single large sheet of paper, and this means that this print was a Deluxe printing and the paper very special. Commonly larger maps were printed on several sheets of paper joined together. Nicely executed. * CONDITION: The map is basically clean and nice but it does have faint pair of stains at the upper left corner and middle center both near or in the margin as well as a bit of the print, this is minor and not greatly obvious, nevertheless overall a nice and obscure work. The whole map was rebacked ages ago and does have a few old worm holes which have been stabilized and are now solid. A collector's cinnabar seal graces the right lower margin, and also one small seal inside the left lower corner. There are two other such seals [Hanko] or chops in the upper left corner, placed by the artist which reads Gago. * SPECIAL NOTE: If you are interested in other mining items from the 19th century, please inquire as we may have other manuscripts on the technology of smelting, mining and related subjects. * BIBLIOGRAPHY: This map is also very similar to the one listed by G. Beans: A LIST OF JAPANESE MAPS OF THE TOKUGAWA ERA, Supplement B, p.34 [1830.9], and is dated Tempo 1st year. * K. Yamashita: JAPANESE MAPS OF THE EDO PERIOD, this map is cited and illustrates the later 1873 Meiji edition on pp.68-69. * New York Public Library: JAPANESE TECHNOLOGY YESTERDAY & TODAY, An Exhibition in the Astor Hall of the N.Y.P.L.

      Chez Aumont n.d. (c.1830), Charles Tilt - Extremely rare portfolio of 12 plates (complete) of images in silhouette from the celebrated French Artist Eugene LePoittevin (1806-1870). The title in English, "Fantastic Shadows," describes this collection of impish devils and period figures displaying what seems to be a constant struggle against ones morals and bad behavior. Le Poitevin was popular for creating such devil-like figures and used them to humorously satirize the behavior of Parisians at the time. This saucy work shows characters such as skeletons, devils, bugs, imps of all kinds in all manner of going about their trouble making business. Though the title gives credit for the illustrations to LePoitevin, four of the plates contain Poitevin's monogram, 3 are unsigned and 5 are signed in the plate by H. Nicolet, possibly the celebrated natural history illustrator Hercule Nicolet. The artists were close in age and there is a scorpion, fly and a cricket in the work, though Poitevin did have a few aliases, or he may have been having fun at his friends expense ? The oblong portfolio measures 22 3/4" X 16 1/2" with the plates loose and unbound measuring 21 1/2" X 16". The cover has chipping at edges and tears where folded, plates have mild to moderate rusting, I will photograph the two best and the two worst. At the time of this listing only one other copy could be found, it is in the Biblioteque Nationale de France. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

L'auteur se sert de plusieurs moyens rhétoriques et narratifs pour donner à cette science aride "une face riante" et une "forme aimable".

        3 tirés à parts, trés rares, des premiers travaux de Chasles à l'origine de sa méthode de géométrie projective

      1830 - 3 parties en 1 volume in-8 de Bruxelles, Hayez, 1830, , 3 parties en 1 volume in-8 de (4) et 44 pages ; puis (4) et 24 pages ; et (4), 29 et (1) pages, demi-chagrin violine à coins légèrement postérieur, dos à 5 nerfs, Mise en recueil des trois très rares tirés à part extraits des volumes 5 et 6 de la Correspondance Mathématique et Physique dirigée par Quételet. En 1827-28, Chasles, après quelques publications dans la Correspondance de l'École Polytechnique, fit son entrée dans l'arène scientifique, par la publication dans les Annales de Gergonne, de recherches sur les coniques confocales, sur la projection stéréographique et sur certaines applications de l'homologie et de la théorie des polaires réciproques. Mais surtout, en 1829 et 1830, il inséra, dans la Correspondance de Quételet, plusieurs études importantes sur la transformation parabolique des relations métriques des figures, prélude au coup d'éclat qu'allait être son mémoire sur "l'Aperçu historique sur l'origine et le développement des méthodes en Géométrie", dont la première mouture fut rédigée en 1830 lors d'un concours proposé par l'Académie royale des Sciences de Bruxelles et qui ne fut publié qu'en 1837 à Bruxelles chez Hayez. Le présent recueil, constitué durant la seconde moitié par Henri Veillard, regroupe ainsi trois des tous premiers travaux importants de Chasles ; à leur suite, on trouve relié : -Théorèmes relatifs au système de deux surfaces du second degré (tiré à part extrait du tome V des Bulletins de l'académie royale de Bruxelles) ; -Mémoire sur les surfaces engendrées par une ligne droite (tiré à part extrait du tome XI de la Correspondance mathématique et physique) ; -Sur l'équation de l'hyperboloïde osculateur à une surface gauche suivant une génératrice, et sur les propriétés de la surface hélicoïde en particulier (tiré à part extrait du tome V des Bulletins de l'Académie Royale de Bruxelles).

      [Japan n.d. ca 1830's]. Stitched wrs.,pictorial covers, wood. block printed book, small size 12 x 18 cm., very good, lower. bottom corner worn, else solid, 17 color, 24 b. w erotic. illustrations, 4 color printed text pages, with an unusual. AN EROTIC STORY WITH DOUBLE FOLDING COLOR PLATES double folded color illustrated page, which first shows a pair of illustrations making one complete image, this then opens up to show four pages again, making one large image. This erotic book like most of the period does not show the artist's name, although some showed a "pen name" to disguise their true name, as these "Shun Pon" or erotic books were officially banned by the Shogunate government during this period. It is also possible to identify the artist by styl- istic analysis. The current work was done by Taito II, who also worked under the studio name Shozan [this is so signed in the first pages]. He flourished [1810-53], but was more commonly known as Katsushika, pupil of the most famous and celebrated Katsushika Hokusai. He was also a collaborator with Hokusai in his famous series THE [HOKUSAI] MANGA. Beca- use he was also know to forge Hokusai's signature on his own works once he left Hokusai's studio, he was know as Inu Hokusai ["Dog Hokusai"]. For good biographical details on him, see L. Roberts: A DICTIONARY OF JAPANESE ARTISTS, page 168. This is the story of a young Samurai, a blade who has been attracted by the prostitute Ume. The story tells and more over illustrates his erotic and sexual adventures in a late Edo period [1830's] whore-house. The color illustrat- ions begins with a handsome blade enticing the innocent new girl, namely Miss Ume to look at a set of erotic books. She feins uninterest, but in fact, her face shows a pinkish-red blush already. The next four page fantastic grand-size illu- stration shows the results of the couples interest in Shun Pon. The blade now parts Ume's Kimono and inserts his tool in to her eager vulva. Another two views show the couple making wild love, while their lovely meal goes ignored ! The next shows Ume biting her left hand in ecstasy as the blade searches deep into her Kimono for more pleasures. Another couple is shown kissing in the next room. The story progres- ses with another harlot voyeuring on the couple who make love on the verandah. The next shows a young girl looking at a Haru Bon while she parts her legs, while another couple engages in love-making in the iris garden. The next shows the blade & Miss Ume again making wild love while a young girl watches them & masturbates then wipes her slippery wet vagina with a paper. The story continues in this vein with much voyeurism. The black and white section continues from this point, with other illustrations of the story including erotic views. The lower & leading edges of this book shows evidence of a small portion being chewed or worn away, but only to the margin, NO damage to the text or its lovely ill- ustrations. For the most part this work was printed on dou- ble-folded leaves, although one color page is printed on a single sheet. Color scans can be sent by email.

        Rare hand-forged slave shackle with etched symbol

      [South Carolina], Circa 1830-1840. 26" long. "Wrought iron shackle, measuring 26"" in length with a chain of 6 square links and an attached barrel-type locking mechanism. Hand forged with a dark patina.Deaccessioned from a museum. From the information on accompanying certificate: Used primarily on a plantation in South Carolina to restrict the movement of enslaved Africans. Dark patina and hand forged construction are consistent with the period. Also, the shackle has an intricate symbol (two arrows) etched by an enslaved African that is commonly known as an Adinka symbol. The symbol is named ""Namawa"" (Trust in their God"". There is another symbol on the side of the shackle that is not identifiable, but was carved at the same time of the other symbol.The Adinka symbols, also know as cosmograms, are typical symbols found by excavating old pottery and other iron works by enslaved Africans."
