        An Historical Atlas in a series of maps of the world as known at different periods constructed upon an uniform scale and coloured according to the political changes of each period Accompanied by a narrative of the leading events exibited in the maps forming together a general view of universal history from the creation to AD 1828

      R B Seeley & W Burnside, London 1830 - 1st edition 1st printing of this large and fascinating book of maps and text, now very rare in any condition. It has been professionally conserved and rebound in half calf and marbled paper at some time during the past 30 years, we think, to copy the original binding. It is presented in a tobacco-coloured cloth covered box which has a little wear to the corners. It is in general in very good condition for its age. All the hand-coloured maps, both single sheets, double and fold-outs are present and are very bright and unworn. There is some staining to the slightly grubby title page which has penetrated the 3 subsequent sides, and two or three more small stains to the early pages. No foxing, and although the text has had a little attention from a bookworm, leaving a small group of pinhead sized punctures, gradually reducing in number throughout, in our opinion these barely detract from the cleanness and brightness of either maps or text, nor cause any illegibility.

        NIHON NO SEITETSU GIJUTSU TO TETSU KOHGU: JAPANESE TECHNOLOGY OF IRON BLACKSMITH

      [Tatara] nd ca.1830-40's.Wood covers,accordion folded leaves. very clean,hand-colored paintings, 21 x 30 cm.,contains [24]. double-folded leaves, 23 double-page, 1 single page drawings. with Japanese text naming the tools. AN OBCURE ALBUM. A FASCINATING PRIMITIVE MANUSCRIPT ON THE FORGING OF IRON An obscure and quite rare hand-colored manuscript album. A fascinating insight to the secrets of early Japanese iron technology and metallurgy: forging techniques of iron, the making of pig iron, forging of iron tools, Tamahagane the precious iron used in the making of Japanese Samurai swords, iron-working implements and mould-casting. This manuscript shows the step-by-step process of this iron metallurgy and technology. This process was also used in the forging of iron into useful implements such as agricultural tools and implements. Another major product made from this ore was the Tamahagane, a high-carbon iron used in making the celebrated and famed Japanese Samurai sword or Nihon-to. This sword was exported to many Asian countries during the 12th-16th cent- uries. What made this Japanese sword and more valuable than any other in the Asian world, was its light weight, soft core and superbly hard exterior. It could cut through bone with a single swipe and seldom broke. It was and is still revered as the finest piece of metal ever made in the last thousand years. * The work was written in Tatara village, which literally tra- nslated means: "Old style Japanese furnace for making Tama- hagane." Tatara was a famous area for ironworks, and espec- ially for making Japanese swords. Tamahagane was the name of the pure raw iron from which Nihon-to or Japanese Samurai swords were forged from. This superior grade iron was forged from very pure iron-sand and charcoal in a Tatara or brick furnace, which was repeated for three days and nights and a vigil kept to keep the proper temperature until the process was finished. The most precious part of the newly smelted lump of iron was then called Tamahagane. This metal was made in a relatevely low temperature of ca. 500 degrees by the combination of iron sand with charcoal; the heat forced out the impurities, leaving a "fat" hard crystals of iron. * Tatara village area was a well-known metal-working place in the old Shimotsuke-no-Kuni, or modern-day Tochigi prefecture and was quite near to the famous folk-art ceramic village of Mashiko. * The work is finely executed by a very skilled & steady hand, drawn by an unsigned & unknown artist in the Ukiyo-e style of Japanese painting & printmaking. The painting style is of the Edo period ie. 1604-1867, likely done in the last 50 years of the period, possibly between 1830-1840's or there- about. It is in remarkably excellent condition, with no flaws to speak of, no worming or other defects. A bright and quite clean album ! * The book is bound in its original pine-wood covers, with beveled-edges, and vertical straight grain. Inside is what appears to be Torinoko hand-made Washi paper pages, with a glossy-finish on some pages. There are some superficial scr- atches to the wood, however, by and large with out any major defect. It contains 23 double-page an one single page color illustrations. There are small tissues papers laid down in the upper corner of several pages with supplemental title text for that drawing. * The work begins with a view double-page panoramic of the large river flowing past the iron "factory" and Tatara village, nestled at the foot of the hills near Nanai, which likely contained a substantial source of local iron ore. Many small worker's cottages surround the area of the "fact- tory," and a Torii shrine-gate is visible just above the "factory" indicating a Shinto shrine entrance and the roof's of that shrine barely stand above the tall trees. It was common to build & have a Shinto shrine near such operations so the workers could prey for mercy and protection from the Kannon or Goddess of Mercy [Avalokiteshwara] during their hot & dangerous daily toil at the hot iron forges. The river is being plied by several small crafts , and three large vessels, one of which is being towed up -stream by three coolies. These ships maybe have been used as the source of transportation of raw materials and finished products: such as Tamahagane, pig iron, raw iron ore, fire wood & finished iron tools and implements. * The following pages show the technology and process of smel- ting raw iron ore and the forging process to convert the iron into useful tools. The first view shows one man using his foot to pump a bellows for the large forge; while anoth- er masked man shovels raw iron ore and charcoal into the roaring furnace fire. He wears a Wara or rice-straw heat apron to fend off the fierce heat and wears a white cotton scarf and a lacquer screen as a face shield, he also wears on his left foot a Wara-ji [rice-straw] slipper to protect his foot from the heat, on his right foot wears the usual Wara-ji sandal. A pair of water boxes are adjacent to cool the tools used in the fire, other tools: broom and hook-fire rake are at the ready. * The third view shows three men working on hot iron ore with long shovel-like tools; one wears a fire apron per the last drawing. The iron ore is rendered molten after the fire placed upon it reaches the appropriate temperature. * The fourth view shows a large variety of tools used in the process of iron manufacture. Many are with long wooden hand- les and are of forged steel ie: picks, ladles, prods, rakes and shovels, brooms & hauling mats from rice-straw, hammers, wedges, face screen &c. Its also clear, that these Japanese blacksmiths are also forging their own tools used to make other tools. * Number five & six shows a woman operating the foot-forge bellows while the large heated crucible renders the iron ore molten as an elderly man rakes the metal down the chute, a young boy is looking on. The room has other water boxes for cooling down the tools used in the process; a broom, extra charcoal, and a group of hand tools are present. The sixth shows a similar view, but with the pig iron ingots ready for re-melting. * Page seven shows a near-naked man wearing a Fundoshi which is home-spun cotton loin-cloth, who cleans out the spent charcoal from the forge & crucible. His back shows a number of round spots, where he has had moxibustion treatment by cauterization, probably due to back pain. Moxibustion is the use of Mogusa or moxa [artemisia vulgaris latifolia] rolled into a cone, then placed on a thin slab of garlic over the location to be cauterized, the moxa is then ignited causing a therapeutic heating effect over a acupuncture point. A pair of iron tongs and a shovel are nearby , while a woman sweeps up, two prods are cooling in the water box. * Illustration eight shows another but different set of tools, many are iron-forged, tongs, various long-handled iron-tip- ped implements, and others made of wood, again tools used in the technology of iron forging. * Number nine shows a lively and active scene. The "Banto" or supervisor [merchant-administrator ?] is sitting besides a Hibachi brazier with a cup of tea. He observes two coolie men workers who are breaking up large pieces of pig-iron in- to smaller pieces for easy transport in Wara bags. They ham- mer and break the ore into smaller pieces , then fill bags and weigh them. There are some oval-casted and finished iron blocks which are also bagged and weighed. Appropriate tools and wrapping materials are at hand. * Ten shows three women, each using their feet to pump the bellows of the forge, while two men use hammers to break the ore into smaller pieces. A third man uses iron Hibashi [iron chop-sticks] to adjust the forge fire that has been covered with clay bricks to keep the heat concentrated on the iron. A forth man is also working one of the bellows. * Page eleven shows a close-up of team work: a woman pumps the bellows, while a man moves the ore with his Hibashi or iron chopsticks. * Number twelve shows a third group of various tools, sieves, long-handled iron tools, tongs, and various wooden items used in the technology & process of iron forging and black- smithing. * Thirteen shows a man and a woman both using a hand bellows to do finish work on the ore. Each one has a bucket of cold water, a ladle, rock hammer and Hibashi to adjust the fire in the smelting process. * The fourteenth shows another set of specialized tools for measuring, sifting, sorting and cutting the ore. or metal product, it shows various wooden boxes, buckets, anvil, hammer, ladle, and a pair of iron shears mounted on a wooden board, Hibashi &c. * Page fifteen shows three women using their feet to activate the hammer/pestle to crush the ore into very fine particl- es for easy smelting, a carry-box is adjacent to move the iron ore. Extra weights are affixed to the end of the pestle to give the down-stroke more force. These weights are conta- ined within a Wara straw mat. Due to the heat generated in this factory, the women open their Kimono disclosing their breasts in an effort to reduce their body heat. * Sixteen shows a larger view of the five women who pound the iron ore into fine particles. They again use their feet to activate the pestles, while three other women move the iron ore under the pounding head for crushing. Most women have their Kimono open exposing their breasts on a warm & sultry day. Three young children accompany their mothers at work, and are of suckling age; two play on a Wara mat with toys, another prepares to suckle his mother. * Seventeen shows two women rinsing the ore in baskets while two others move the ore, while a little child watches on. * Eighteen shows a good number of mostly wooden tools and equipment used in the sifting, hauling & moving of iron ore. * Number nineteen shows a large view of a great furnace fire under a grand hood where the excess heat & smoke are allowed to escape. Two men are working the ore; one man operates the foot bellows, while another uses a long shovel-like tool to add charcoal to the fire. He is protected by the above ment- ioned equipment. * Page twenty shows a number of the long-handled, iron-tipped tools manufactured at this iron factory. * Twenty-one shows a very brilliant view of high-technology of the day. A foot-bellows is connected to the clay forge via a duct, where the super-heated iron ore is smelted and melted into pig iron. One man operates the bellows, while another rakes out the molten ore; a third man chats with the bellows operator who sits on two large bales of charcoal. There is a large hood over the clay forge to remove the noxious fumes. The Japanese Kanji character symbol "Ue" is painted on the wall with a circle around it, indicating the abbreviated name of the factory or its owner, which begins with "Ue." * Number twenty-two shows another group of iron-tipped tools made in this factory. * Twentiy-three shows a man removing the molten ore from the forge into casting ingot forms to make ovals for later use or resale. He is wearing the usual heat protectors of Wara. * Number twenty-four show another set of various long-handled tools and a broom. * The Japanese have always been very protective of their tech- nology, technical skills and tools, never sharing them with outsiders or people not working in their group. Such "trade- secrets" or craftsmen's techniques were always coveted and not given away. Competition was always keen in Japan, and Ninja or industrial spies were employed by competitors to steal innovative techniques. This book clearly documents those guarded techniques, and methods used in converting iron ore into pig iron and then into useful iron tools. The book was probably made in an effort to teach new and young workers about the methods, techniques and nomenclature of the tools used in the manufacturing process. The names of these objects were painted in red. This book is therefore a secret record of that coveted information accumulated and passed on to the next generation of workers. Beautifully and artistically executed in a solid and steady hand, with deli- cate pastel colors of an early era.

Giroux produit des reliures remarquables pour l'éclat, la richesse et le bon goût des dorures (.). Pourtant ses qualités sont contestées par la délégation ouvrière aux expositions qui écrit : Nous ne pouvons dissimuler notre surprise puisqu'elles sortaient des ateliers de Thouvenin qui ne travaillait pour cette maison qu'à la condition expresse de ne pas signer ses reliures, que bien entendu M. Giroux donnait pour siennes. Après la mort de Thouvenin les mêmes avantages furent offerts à Bauzonnet qui, tenant à conserver la responsabiblité de ses oeuvres, n'eut garde d'accepter » (Fléty, p. 82).

"Le Courier De La Malle": in excellent condition with the exception of being trimmed within the platemark on all sides. A number of small tears along the edges of the sheet. A small area on the bottom margin has been infilled. Image size: 13 ½ x 21 ½ inches. Sheet size: 16 5/8 x 23 7/8 inches. "La Diligence": in excellent condition with the exception of two expertly repaired tears along left side of sheet. Framed and matted in attractive black wood frames. Image size: 13 ½ x 21 ½ inches. Frame size: 25 x 32 inches. A stunning pair of aquatints by Jazet after the celebrated French landscape painter Etienne Bouhot. This beautiful pair of aquatints by Jazet, after paintings by Etienne Bouhot, are a wonderful example of Bouhot's unique style. A Burgundian artist, Bouhot made a reputation for himself as a talented architectural landscape painter. He exhibited regularly at the Salon and produced many fine paintings of the countryside surrounding Paris. The Industrial Revolution did not take hold in France until the 1830's when slowly factories began to appear across the countryside and the railways made their way into smaller towns across France. The modernization of the countryside had a great impact on French landscape painters but it was not until the work of the Impressionists, at the close of the century, that the symbols of Industrialization began to appear in images of rural France. For many years artists tended to ignore the factories and railways that littered the countryside, opting to paint an idealize vision of the country as a bucolic paradise. Although not as obvious as the Impressionists, Bouhot was one of the few artists to hint at the encroaching clouds of modern industry. His moody paintings capture a pivotal time in French history when the countryside was slowly transformed by modern industry. This remarkable pair of aquatints are a superb example of Bouhot's complex paintings. Instead of depicting an idealized vision of the countryside, Bouhot has chosen to show the effect of modernization on rural life. Jean Pierre Marie Jazet was one of the most prominent aquatint engravers of the Napoleonic era. He worked almost exclusively in aquatint, reproducing the paintings of the grand Republican artists such as David, Vernet, de Gros, and Grenier. Although the majority of his prints were patriotic images, he also produced many fine aquatints of pastoral paintings and genre scenes. His fresh images exhibit he beauty of the medium and exemplify his amazing technical ability. His extremely complex prints are fluid yet detailed; they express the beautiful painterly technique of the medium while exhibiting the precision of the reproductive arts. This pair is a veritable tour de force and a superb example of Jazet's talents as an engraver. Grand Larousse du XIXe's.

        [Antigua] Vue de Cedarhall dans l'Isle d'Antigon auz Indes occidentales

      Basel, Switzerland: Birmann & Fils, au profit des missions évangéliques, 1830. Hand-coloured aquatint, engraved by Hurlimann after a drawing by L. Stobwasser. Very good condition apart from some very minor foxing and a few light pencil marks in the margins. A rare plate from the "Vues des établissements missionnaires fondés par la communauté évangélique des Frères-Unis." This superbly coloured print is one of a set of four plates depicting the various missionary establishments founded on the island of Antigua. Published by Birmann & Fils, Vues des établissements was intended to raise money for the missionary endeavors of the Moravian Church, a Protestant sect that was originally known as the Unitas Fratrum. In 1741, the Moravians founded its missionary arm, the Society for the Furtherance of the Gospel (S.F.G.), which began its activities in Antigua and other Caribbean islands in the 1760s. Founded in 1822, Cedar Hall, like Gracehill and Grac, was one of several Moravian churches established in Antigua during the late eighteenth and early nineteenth century.

        Ansicht der Grotte und der gothischen Brücke im K. K. Garten zu Laxenburg - Vue de la Grotte et du Pont-Gothique dans le Jardin J. et R. de Laxenbourg".

      Wien, Artaria, um 1830. - Bildausschnitt ca. 27 x 40 cm. Nicht bei Nebehay-W.- Ansicht des Parkes von Laxenburg mit der Grotte am linken Bildrand, mittig die gotische Brücke. Im Vordergrund der Teich mit einigen Ruderbooten. "Die gotische Brücke ist mit rund 12 Meter Höhe die größte und imposanteste Brücke im Schlosspark Laxenburg. Bereits 1798 für den 'Rittergau' des Schlossparks geplant ist sie 1810 vollendet worden. Ihr kühner Spitzbogen steht parallel zum Felsenbogen der benachbarten Grotte und symbolisiert dadurch das Kunstwerk gegenüber dem Naturwerk. Es wird durch diese Architektur auch klargemacht, dass der gotische Stil 'naturverbunden' ist und dass der Mensch die Natur als vorbildhafte Kunstschöpferin anerkennen muss. Die Reliefs an dieser Brücke sind ein Werk des Bildhauers Franz Kähsmann. In Sichtweite der Brücke befindet sich der mit Säulenpappeln bepflanzte Rousseauhügel, eine Imitation der 'Île des peupliers' (Insel der Pappeln) im Schlosspark Ermenonville nahe Paris."

        General View of Niagara Falls

      Original watercolour and bodycolour, within a thick black line border, with and integral outer 'frame' of grey wash, the title inscribed in white on this gray wash 'frame'. Gilt frame. A beautifully observed and typically detailed work from Nicolino Calyo in the classical Italian 'veduta' or 'view' tradition. Nicolino Calyo's work is well-represented in American museums and institutions, with examples at the White House, the Baltimore Museum of Art, the New York Historical Society, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, Belmont Mansion in Nashville, the Amon Carter Museum in Fort Worth, the Maryland Historical Society in Baltimore, the Washington County Museum of Fine Arts in Maryland and the Museum of the City of New York. Calyo was born in Naples, Italy, where he studied art at the Royal Academy. After some time travelling in Europe (he apparently lived briefly in both Malta and Spain) he emigrated to the United States in about 1830, setting up a studio initially in Baltimore. He left for Philadelphia and the north in about June 1835, arriving in New York in time to record the disastrous Great Fire of 16 and 17 December 1835 (two of the resulting pictures were later reproduced in aquatint by by William James Bennett [1789-1844]). Calyo subsequently made New York his home and the city directories from 1838 to 1855 all list him as either a 'portrait and landscape painter' or a 'professor of painting.' By the late 1840s his Italian-born son John A. Calyo (1818-1893) had joined him and they advertised as 'N. Calyo & Son,' historical painters and teachers. The original reason for his leaving Italy had been political, and given this background it is not surprising to find that his New York home became a gathering place for other European exiles (including the future Napoleon III [1808-1873]). Calyo apparently made one significant return visit to Europe, when he travelled to Spain (where he worked as Court painter to Queen Maria Cristina [1806-1878]), but he returned to New York in 1874 and remained there for the rest of his life. Calyo is best known for the watercolour and gouache views of American cities and landmarks (such as the present work) but he also painted scenes taken from the Mexican War of 1846-1848 and an enormous forty-foot panorama of the Connecticut River. He exhibited paintings at American Society of Painters in Watercolor in New York between 1867 and 1869. The style he employs is quite distinctive among American artists, and as Kathleen Foster notes, his Italian training 'dominates his method . . . conditioning his liberal use of gouache, which imparts an opaque, slightly chalky surface to his work, setting it apart from the English style of transparent watercolor more familiar to American artists of that period.'

        FIRST MESSAGE OF PRESIDENT JACKSON TO THE CONGRESS OF THE UNITED STATES

      Washington, 1830. Some scattered tears and slight silk loss, mainly in the margins, but with a few text tears. Expertly matted, and protected with a mylar sheet. A very striking broadside, evidently intended for presentation to members of Congress, as it bears the printed inscription: "Respectfully inscribed to the Twenty-First Congress...By the Publisher." The text is Jackson's first State of the Union Message, of Dec. 8, 1829, and printed in January 1830. Any early broadsides printed on silk are very rare.

        [Chippewa Chief Peechekir, also called Buffalo: A Charcoal Head Study by Charles Bird King for a Painting Later Published in McKenney and Hall's History of the Indian Tribes of North America]

      [Washington, D.C., 1830. Charcoal heightened with white ongray paper, 10 1/8 x 6 1/4 inches. Unsigned. Handsomely presented in a ruled blue and black mat. A beautiful image in fine condition. A rare Charles Bird King study of a Chippewa Chief Peechekir (or Peechekor, Buffalo) was "a solid, straight formed Indian," Colonel McKenney recalled many years after meeting the Chippewa (Ojibwa, Anishinabe) chief at a treaty ceremony in the Michigan Territory circa 1825-27. According to Horan, Charles Bird King copied this head from a James Otto Lewis painting, but no evidence survives to prove it. It was probably lost, as were many Lewis paintings and the King oil of Peechekir, in the 1865 Smithsonian fire. This sketch is one of sixteen known studies by King of Indian heads, discovered in 1974 among family papers by Bayard Leroy King, Saunderston, Rhode Island, a descendant of one Edward King, the artist's second cousin. The study is illustrated in Cosentino's The Paintings of Charles Bird King , and in Viola's Indian . The McKenney and Hall History of the Indian Tribes of North America ... portrait of Peechekir is clearly based on this sketch. Charles Bird King (1785-1862) was born in Newport, trained in London under Benjamin West, and eventually settled in Washington in 1819, calculating it was a good base for one who sought to earn a living mainly by portraiture. He was thus in the right place when the Commissioner of Indian Affairs, Thomas L. McKenney, decided to add portraits of leading Indian chiefs to the collection of artifacts he had begun when he became superintendent of Indian trade in 1816. McKenney conceived the idea of an Indian portrait gallery at the time of the visit of a large delegation of Indians from the Upper Missouri to Washington in 1821-22. King was commissioned to execute the portraits. An exceptionally handsome likeness of a Chippewa chief, sketched by one of the most famous and important, avidly collected, portrait-makers of 19th-century American Indians, this study is one of the few fine Indian portraits by Charles Bird King still to be found in the art market.

        HISTORIA GENERAL DE LAS COSAS DE NUEVA ESPAÑA

      Mexico, 1830. Small quarto. Later brown half morocco and marbled boards, spines gilt. Rubbed at extremities; boards lightly scuffed. Bookplate on front pastedowns. Bright and clean internally. Very good. Father Sahagún's life as a teacher of boys from high- ranking Nahautl families and as a student of their language and history is well known, and long has been. But the original 16th-century manuscript of his history of pre-Conquest Mexico in Nahuatl lay unpublished in the Laurentian library in Florence, Italy, until the 20th century; and his own translation of it suffered a similar fate until the great 19th-century historian Carlos María de Bustamante found that manuscript in the library of the monastery of San Francisco de Tolosa de Navana, and published this edition. Father Sahagún's native students and their families clearly "opened up," as we would now say, to him and his project of recording the facts and lore of their clearly then-vanishing culture in their own language; and his text brims with firsthand information gleaned from them on astronomy, astrology, myths, social structure, language, history, gemology, warfare, and literature, to single out a few fields of study. Bustamante added explanatory notes and amplifying texts from collateral sources such as Alvaro de Tezozomoc, Sigüenza y Góngora, and his own writings.

        A Full and Accurate Account of the Inquest Held Upon the Remains.

      1830 - Rare Early Account of the Oddingley Murders [Hemming, Richard (c.1772-1806)]. [Parket, George (d. 1806)]. A Full and Accurate Account of the Inquest Held Upon the Remains of Richard Hemming, Lately Discovered in a Barn, At Oddingley, Worcestershire, Including Particulars of the Murder Committed on the Body of the Rev. George Parker, Rector of Oddingley, On the 24th of June, 1806. Worcester: Printed and published by T. Eaton, 1830. [i], 53 pp. Woodcut frontispiece (of Hemming's skeleton and a plan of where it was discovered). Octavo (7-1/2" x 4-1/2"). Stab-stitched pamphlet bound into recent marbled boards, printed paper title label to spine. Moderate toning to text, occasional light foxing, light soiling to title page, internally clean. A handsome copy of a rare item. * Only edition. The Oddingley murders took place in June 1806. Rev. George Parker, Rector of Oddingley, was found in a meadow in the village, dying from a gunshot wound to the stomach. Witnesses saw the assailant. From their description he was identified as Richard Hemming. He wasn't located alive, but his skeleton was found 24 years later buried in a barn. At the time of the 1806 murders, that barn was leased by a farmer named Thomas Clewes. After his arrest, Clewes admitted his knowledge of the murders. He said a trio of farmers hired Hemming to murder their late rector because of a long-running dispute over tithes. Then, without a stated motive, one of them killed Hemming. The discovery of the murderer's skeleton 24 years later, followed by a lurid confession, transformed a local story to a national event. People expected the trial of Clewes, John Barnett and George Banks, the two surviving conspirators named by Clewes, to result in a triple hanging. The men were not convicted, however, due to legal technicalities, witnesses who contradicted themselves and, most important, a lack of solid evidence beyond Clewes's confession. OCLC locates 3 copies, none in North America. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
