        Rivers of Life

      1833. First Edition . FORLONG, J.G.R. Rivers of Life, or Sources and Streams of the Faiths of Man in All Lands; Showing the Evolution of Faiths from the Rudest Symbolisms to the Latest Spiritual Developments.

Quarto, original green cloth rebacked with original spines laid down, patterned endpapers. $2600.First edition of this comprehensive, cross-cultural study of world religions, illustrated with 17 plates, two color folding maps, over 300 in-text illustrations, a large, folding, “synoptical table of gods, god-ideas and many features which all faiths have more or less in common” and an extremely large (21 by 96 inches) folding, linen-backed, color chart displaying the global evolution of religious thought.Major-General Forlong was not only a military engineer but also a life-long, comparative scholar of world religions. He knew seven different languages and traveled extensively in India. He produced two magisterial works: Faiths of Man, a Cyclopaedia of Religions (1906) and this work in 1883. Forlong traces the development of the world’s great faiths from such ancient origins as the worship of trees, serpents, ancestors and heavenly bodies. He treats a wide variety of esoteric and mystical matters, including: the connection between pyramids in Egypt and earthen mounds in Kentucky; the influence of myths about Vishnu on the symbolism found in Christian catacombs; parallels between Babylonian and Israelite flood myths; the link between Assyrian and British crowns; the relationship of Roman sun worship to the doctrine of Roman Catholic transubstantiation; and water worship among peoples from the primitive Celts to the Cibola tribes of New Mexico. Includes the first appendix, a large (7-1/2 by 2-1/4 feet) chart of faith streams, issued (according to the Table of Contents) either folded (as here, in a separate case as Volume III) or on rollers.

        Autograph Letter Signed, Fort Vancouver, Columbia River, Oregon Territory, 9mo [September] 26th, 1835, to John C. Allen, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

      quarto, three pages of a four page bi-folium, formerly folded, last leaf, page three, has some paper loss at fold joints, affecting several letters of text, remains of sealing wax and postal markings on integral address leaf, else in very good, clean and legible condition John Kirk Townsend, writes to his friend John C. Allen, a Philadelphia, Quaker druggist, from Fort Vancouver while a member of the Wyeth expedition to Oregon. He describes collection plants with Thomas Nuttall along the trail and the voyage he took to Hawaii in company with Nuttall and plans to send Allen plant specimens: "Dear John, Thee will no doubt expect the collection of plants which I promised to make for thee sent by this conveyance with the other matters & I most certainly intended to have done so, but have not for the reasons which I shall presently state. When we started on our little ride I made an attempt to collect plants & had procured a small number, appending to them the many got from Mr. Nuttall so far as the species was known. But as I had some other matters to attend to, & as plant finding was almost the sole business of the old gentleman he advised me to give over & in consideration of my shooting & preparing a bird for him occasionally & now & then rendering him some assistance in the mechanical part of his profession, he promised to give me a collection for them. This collection I intended to get from him here, but when he packed up a few days since I was absent from the fort, off among the mountains 60 or 70 miles - & the old fellow forgot to make the selection. I could not ask him to unpack all his boxes thou knowest, but he says he will give me the collection immediately as we arrive at home & then he will have a better opportunity of arranging them properly.- I hope thee will not be dissatisfied with this - it is not by any means what I wished but I must per force submit to it. Thee will believe that friend N - will not fly from his promise & perhaps the collection may be in better order that if it had passed through my hands here. This is all I have to console me about the matter, but I repeat it is not as I wished or would have had it. On my route home I will collect plants myself & I shall not allow any one to divert me from it. I have already written, this siege, 8 letters to different individuals & have so often related little adventures & matters of that kind that they have become somewhat flat & stale, so I can but suggest that those of my friends who wish to know anything about these things can call & my fathers & see the letters there - I had a most delightful visit to the Sandwich Islands last winter. When we sailed out of the river here every object in nature looked dull & gloomy, the sun was seldom seen, a small drizzling rain was constantly falling & soaking the poor pedestrian to the skin, & every thing was & had been so disagreeable & cheerless that I more than once wished myself almost anywhere else. But as we rounded Cape Disappointment & stood out to sea, the aspect of matters was totally changed - a cool, but reviving & bracing atmosphere, the sun shining gloriously & casting his rays upon the flashing waters, myriads of sea birds following the track of our vessel, now darting into our foaming wake & anon sailing & screaming over our heads, all these things with many more which might be added caused our spirits to rise to an almost extravagant degree. The change was effected in such an incredibly short space of time that it seemed almost magical. In a few days we took the fresh trades & in less than two weeks saw the identical spot where the intrepid Cook died so ingloriously far, far from his friends & from the thousands who were destined to reap so much benefit from his indefatigable enterprize. Passing the old rocky shores of Owhyhee we bore up & passed the other islands of the group & in two days anchored in the port of Oahu. I should attempt in vain to give thee an adequate idea of the beauty, richness & salubrity of this most admirable & delicious climate. Everything about it is purely oriental & realized to the fullest extent all the apparently unfounded notions I had formed about it. As you approach the pretty town of Honoruru, the eye is greeted by thousands of the neatest little conical grass houses that can be conceived - these seem to be thrown or pitched about with out any regard to regularly [sic] except an occasional attempt at grouping which is highly picturesque - the shore in many places is lined with rows of tall cocoa nut trees with their denuded trunks & tufted tops, most of them heavily laden with fruit; here & there a string of the copper colored lads & lasses may be seen roaming carelessly & indolently along the coral beach their gay robes of many colors fluttering in the breeze - while others of both sexes are observed wantoning in the foaming surf, many even venturing to swim out towards our vessel to examine the character of the new comers & in spite of sharks & dog fish keeping around our prow, occasionally pealing out a gay "Aroha", until our anchor has fallen & then mounting our decks to welcome us to their hospitable shores - All these things I have seen just as I relate them & they made an impression upon me that I never shall forget. Our stay at the islands was extended to about three months & I think I can truly say I never enjoyed myself so much within the same space of time, we were treated in the kindest & most hospitable manner by the foreign residents, we received considerable attention & were treated with much kindness by the king & his household, & in short everything was so perfectly agreeable that nothing was left to wish for - How different is our situation here among savage untutored Indians, - but lo! I'm nearly at the end of my sheet & must curb my Pegasus - he's a wild colt sometimes. I wish thee all health & happiness may old friend - Art thou married yet I suspect thou art - may thy wife be all that thou wishest her to be & "prove as a fruitful vine around thy table" - is that the quotation? I fear not. I intend to start next spring about May probably, to return across the land & hope to be at home by Oct. or Nov. Is thee a member of the Acad? I hope so - I shall send my collection such as it is & would like thee to see it if thee will take the trouble ..." John Kirk Townsend, ornithologist, physician, was born in Philadelphia, he became a physician and surgeon and at the same time pursued his avocation of naturalist. He was elected a member of the Academy of Natural Sciences in 1833. He was eager to explore the western country and joined Nathaniel Wyeth's second expedition to Oregon, leaving Independence, Missouri, April 28, 1834, with the annual fur trade caravan and by June arriving at the Green River rendezvous, from there going on to Fort Vancouver, Washington, which they reached on September 16. Townsend had been recommended as zoologist for the trip by Thomas Nuttall, the renowned peripatetic naturalist who had resigned his position at Harvard University to accompany the party as botanist. In Philadelphia, the American Philosophical Society and the Academy of Natural Sciences both gave Townsend cash advances for the specimens that he would collect and provide to the two societies. Nuttall and Townsend labored intently along the route to procure natural history specimens, and, although Townsend complained about the fast pace of the trip, the scientists were able to collect many previously undescribed animals and plants. The fall months were spent exploring the lower Columbia, and from January through late March 1835, Nuttall and Townsend visited the Hawaiian Islands before returning to Fort Vancouver in mid-April. Townsend explored the lower Columbia River, visited Walla Walla and the Blue Mountains completing his bird collection. In September 1835 Nuttall sailed on the Hudson's Bay Company ship Ganymede via Hawaii to Philadelphia, taking with him some 300 bird skins and fifty mammal skins prepared by Townsend. Meanwhile, Townsend remained at Fort Vancouver, where he assumed the duties as post surgeon from September to March 1836, at which time he was able to continue his collecting after being relieved of his medical work by another physician. Nuttall delivered most of Townsend's specimens to the Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia, where they aroused intense interest. News of the specimens reached Audubon. Nuttall gave Audubon some of his own duplicate specimens, Audubon then rushed to Philadelphia, eager to gain access to the specimens for inclusion in his Birds of America. Audubon was permitted to use the Townsend specimens only after he consented that "the specific names agreed upon by Mr. Nuttall and myself were published in Dr. Townsend's name." Ninety-three duplicate skins were purchased by one of Audubon's benefactors and Audubon proceeded to Charleston, South Carolina in the winter of 1836-37 where he drew seventy-six new plates for The Birds of America. Townsend left Vancouver by way of Hawaii and Cape Horn in November 1836, he arrived home a year later in such financial distress that he was compelled to sell much of his own personal collection, some of which was purchased by Audubon, who also arranged for Townsend's Hawaiian birds to be purchased in England. Two papers describing many of the newly discovered western species were published under Townsend's name in the Journal of the Academy of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia (7 [1837]: 187-93; 8 [1839]: 148-59), and Townsend described much of his sojourn with the Wyeth expedition in the Narrative of a Journey across the Rocky Mountains to the Columbia River and a Visit to the Sandwich Islands, Chili &c. (1839). Townsend also attempted his own comprehensive American ornithology, Ornithology of the United States of America (1839), of which only one part appeared, containing twelve pages and four color plate illustrations. The project was canceled, despite favorable notices, because of the publication of the octavo edition of Audubon's Birds of America (1840-1844). Consequently, Townsend's ornithological contributions appeared mainly in Audubon's works, including life history materials in volumes four and five of the Ornithological Biography (1838 and 1839). Most of Townsend's mammal data from the West were described by Audubon and Bachman in Viviparous Quadrupeds of North America (1845-1849), which contained many species named in honor of Townsend. From 1839 to 1840 Townsend was curator at the Academy of Natural Science in Philadelphia. By 1842, he had relocated to Washington, D.C., where he was responsible for preparing birds and other specimens at the National Institute for the Promotion of Science. Townsend returned to Philadelphia and the curatorship at the Academy of Sciences from 1845 to 1846. Townsend's health declined after his return from Oregon and he died in 1851, it was suspected that his death resulted from chronic exposure to arsenic, which he had used for many years to preserve bird and mammal specimens.

        A Liberdade dos Mares, ou o Governo Inglez Descoberto; Traduzido livremente do Hespanhol.

      Rio de Janeiro: Miranda & Carneiro, 1833. Three parts in one volume, small octavo; in contemporary green quarter calf, gilt. The first edition in Portuguese of this unrecorded reference to Botany Bay.First published in 1789 in Paris, Barère de Vieuzac's La Liberté des Mers was an invective against the British government, whose maritime supremacy he described in such terms as "despotism" and "tyranny".This volume is a translation from a Spanish edition of Barère published circa 1820. In the Introduction, Barère charges the British with a multitude of crimes, including responsibility for the evils of the French Revolution; conspiring with American Indians to attack non-British settlers; aiding and abetting pirates; and exiling Irish and Scottish political prisoners to Botany Bay. This reference consists of seven lines of text which appear on p. xv:'"Quem concebeo e executou o terrivel plano de desterrar para o arido Solo de Botany-Bay aos Irlandezes e Escocezes, e de assassinar em Hollanda, Italia, França e America todos os Virtuaosos patriotas, que sustentavão com energia a liberdade, e gloria de seu paiz". O Gevenrno Britanico'.Barère (1755-1841) was born in Gascony and practiced law until elected to the States-General in 1789. Elected president of the Convention in December 1792, Barère presided over the trial and execution of Louis XVI. This is the first edition to have appeared in Portuguese. None of the editions in Spanish or French have been traced in Ferguson. Occasional light spotting. A fine copy.

        LIGHTHOUSES, THE STEVENSONS, & OTHER LIFE SAVING DEVICES AT SEA, 1821-1893. An interesting collection of 41 contemporary 19th century publications, featuring several pieces by and about the ?Lighthouse Stevensons?, a number of scientific improvements and creations for lighting and lenses, together with incredible and intriguing life saving devices for shipwrecked sailors.

      Various Publishers - This material benefits from the immediacy and contemporary nature of the moment it is written in, and much of it has been ignored or at best skimmed over in the standard studies, and it provides the opportunity for much further study and fresh commentary on safety at sea. This compelling selection of articles, all written in English, are taken from important 19th century journals. Key pieces include a very important piece by David Brewster on the British Lighthouse System (1833), an interesting detailed discussion on the Parliamentary inquiry into Lighthouses (1835) along with a responses by Alan Stevenson (1835) refuting some of the comments made. There are good illustrated pieces from the Encyclopedia Britannica (1824) on the Bell Rock Lighthouse, and the Encyclopedia Metropolitana (1845) regarding the Eddystone Lighthouse. Francis Conder contributes an extended item on the Engineers and construction of Eddystone and Skerryvore (1880), whilst there are numerous articles with detailed improvements to the mechanisms, lenses, and lighting from amongst others John Wigham (1886), William Swan (1850), and Thomas Stevenson (1871) and Alan Stevenson (1835). J.R. Leifchild summaries numerous official documents on Wrecks, Life Boats and Lighthouses (1862) and there are various articles on Shipwrecks (J.R.McCulloch, 1834), Life Boats (Andrew Henderson, 1857), and Percussion Lights (Cpt. Leach, 1857), amongst others. All published between 1821 and 1893. The majority of the articles are octavo in size, and quite a few, particularly regarding shipwrecks and life saving devices have illustrations, chiefly woodcuts. There are a couple of quartos, plus an engraving, and two small folio Acts of Parliament, and two folio Chambers' Edinburgh Journals. The entire collection runs to over 400 pages. Note; this is a collection of articles all separated and disbound from other volumes, not offprints or reprints. Overall condition is very good, with bright clean, easily readable pages. There is some browning here and there to a few pages, but not many. Each article is contained in a clear protective sleeve for safe handling, and the whole collection is housed in a box file for smart presentation and ease of shelving. A full list of all the articles contained in this collection is available on request. Quantity Available: 1. Category: Antiquarian & Rare; Collections. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Die Wahrscheinlichkeitsrechnung in ihrer Anwendung auf das wissenschaftliche und practische Leben.

      Vienna: F. Beck, 1833. 1st Edition. Hardcover. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. Original printed wrappers, soiled; spine shipped; interior browned and foxed.First Edition, very rare. Littrow was astronomer and director of the Vienna Observatory. This copy is one of his few mathematical works which was intended to serve as supporting material to students for his lectures on pure mathematics.Da Littrow auch Vorlesungen über reine Mathematik zu halten hatte, verfaßte er für seine Lehrzwecke mehrere von pädagogischem Tacte zeugende Unterrichtsbücher, von denen die "Analytische Geometrie" (1823), die "Elemente der Algebra und Geometrie" (1827) und die "Wahrscheinlichkeitsrechnung" (1833) besonders hervorheben sind (Wikipedia). Very Good.

        Broadside, begins: Himno patriotico.

      Mexico: Oficina de Valdés, 1833. Folio (30.5 cm; 12"). [1] p. Typographically embellished patriotic poetry: The hymn is written in quatrains and is printed within a "temple" created out of printers' ornaments, dingbats, and dashes. In the arch above the temple's pillars one reads, below the "Eagle and Serpent" logo, "Al glorioso recuerdo del Grito de Dolores."    Integral with this, on what might be considered pp. 3 and 4, was printed another verse paean: M. B. [drop-title] Hidalgo en Dolores e Iturbide en Iguala. [colophon: Mexico: Imprenta de Valdez, a cargo de Jose Maria Gallegos, 1833. Folio (30.5 cm; 12"). [2] pp.    The only institutions reporting ownership of this duo (the Spanish National Library, the British Library) catalogue them as separate items, not being in any way connected, but clearly, as this offering proves, they were printed at the same time, on the same press, on one single full folio sheet (i.e., 30.5 x 42 cm; 12" x 16.5").    Two examples of celebratory patriotic poetry and clearly very scarce. But one wonders, why were these printed in 1833, which was not a logical year for celebrating either the Grito de Dolores or the Plan of Iguala? Folded in fourths once upon a time with one blank-area rust(?) stain and soiling along the folds to the Himno patriotico, which also is lightly dust-soiled. The bifolium was once stitched lightly as per holes in the gutter. Very good.

        Lettres écrites d'Égypte et de Nubie en 1828 et 1829.

      Paris, Firmin-Didot, 1833, in 8°, de XV-472 pp., ill. de 7 planches litho. dont deux se dépl. (numérotées de I à VI dont une pl. II.bis), demi-veau gris XIXe, dos lisse à filets dorés, bel exemplaire frais. (ex-libris Pierre de Torcy) Edition originale. Lettres adressées à son frère par Champollion le jeune, durant son voyage Égypte et en Nubie, dans les années 1828 et 1829, pour une mission scientifique avec son collaborateur et ami Ippolito Rosellini. Elles donnent ses impressions sur le vif, au jour le jour. On sait que ce voyage, qui lui permit de vérifier que son système hiéroglyphique fonctionnait, lui fut pourtant fatal. Ayant contracté une tuberculose et une bilharziose, il rentra en France pour se faire soigner mais mourut en 1832, à l'âge de 41 ans. Son frère aîné Champollion-Figeac, bien que grand érudit, restera dans l'ombre pour mieux mettre en valeur le génie de son frère cadet, et éditera la majorité de ses travaux, auxquels il avait d'ailleurs contribué.
