        The New Testament of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ by William Tyndale

      Herbert # 1821, 1837/1526, 8vo 7.75" x 5" x 2.25", FIRST EDITION BIBLE, Very Good,fine binding, entered according to an act of Congress 1837, :William Tyndale c.1494-1536, "Let it not make thee despair, neither yet discourage thee, O reader, that it is forbidden thee in pain of life and goods, or that it is made breaking of the king's peace, or treason unto his highness, to read the Word of thy soul's health?"for if God be on our side, what matter maketh it who be against us, be they bishops, cardinals, popes."William Tyndale could speak seven languages and was proficient in ancient Hebrew and Greek. He was a priest whose intellectual gifts and disciplined life could have taken him a long way in the church?"had he not had one compulsion: to teach English men and women the good news of justification by faith. Tyndale had discovered this doctrine when he read Erasmus's Greek edition of the New Testament. What better way to share this message with his countrymen than to put an English version of the New Testament into their hands? This, in fact, became Tyndale's life passion, aptly summed up in the words of his mentor, Erasmus: "Christ desires his mysteries to be published abroad as widely as possible. I would that [the Gospels and the epistles of Paul] were translated into all languages, of all Christian people, and that they might be read and known."He was a native of Gloucester and began his studies at Oxford in 1510, later moving on to Cambridge. By 1523 his passion had been ignited; in that year he sought permission and funds from the bishop of London to translate the New Testament. The bishop denied his request, and further queries convinced Tyndale the project would not be welcomed anywhere in England. To find a hospitable environment, he traveled to the free cities of Europe?"Hamburg, Wittenberg, Cologne, and finally to the Lutheran city of Worms. There, in 1525, his New Testament emerged: the first translation from Greek into the English language. It was quickly smuggled into England, where it received a less-than-enthusiastic response from the authorities. King Henry VIII, Cardinal Wolsey, and Sir Thomas More, among others, were furious. It was, said More, "not worthy to be called Christ's testament, but either Tyndale's own testament or the testament of his master Antichrist."Authorities bought up copies of the translation (which, ironically, only financed Tyndale's further work) and hatched plans to silence Tyndale. Meanwhile Tyndale had moved to Antwerp, a city in which he was relatively free from both English agents and those of the Holy Roman (and Catholic) Empire. For nine years he managed with the help of friends to evade authorities, revise his New Testament, and begin translating the Old. His translations, it would turn out, became decisive in the history of the English Bible, and of the English language. Nearly a century later, when translators of the Authorized, or King James Version, debated how to translate the original languages, eight of ten times, they agreed that Tyndale had it best to begin with. During these years, Tyndale also gave himself methodically to good works because, as he said, "My part be not in Christ if mine heart be not to follow and live according as I teach." On Mondays he visited other religious refugees from England. On Saturdays he walked Antwerp's streets, seeking to minister to the poor. On Sundays he dined in merchants' homes, reading Scripture before and after dinner. The rest of the week he devoted to writing tracts and books and translating the Bible. We do not know who planned and financed the plot that ended his life (whether English or continental authorities), but we do know it was carried out by Henry Phillips, a man who had been accused of robbing his father and of gambling himself into poverty. Phillips became Tyndale's guest at meals and soon was one of the few privileged to look at Tyndale's books and papers. In May 1535, Phillips lured Tyndale away from the safety of his quarters and into the arms of soldiers. Tyndale was immediately taken to the Castle of Vilvorde, the great state prison of the Low Countries, and accused of heresy. Trials for heresy in the Netherlands were in the hands of special commissioners of the Holy Roman Empire. It took months for the law to take its course. During this time, Tyndale had many hours to reflect on his own teachings, such as this passage from one of his tracts:"Let it not make thee despair, neither yet discourage thee, O reader, that it is forbidden thee in pain of life and goods, or that it is made breaking of the king's peace, or treason unto his highness, to read the Word of thy soul's health?"for if God be on our side, what matter maketh it who be against us, be they bishops, cardinals, popes."Finally, in early August 1536, Tyndale was condemned as a heretic, degraded from the priesthood, and delivered to the secular authorities for punishment. On Friday, October 6, after local officials took their seats, Tyndale was brought to the cross in the middle of the town square and given a chance to recant. That refused, he was given a moment to pray. English historian John Foxe said he cried out, "Lord, open the King of England's eyes!" Then he was bound to the beam, and both an iron chain and a rope were put around his neck. Gunpowder was added to the brush and logs. At the signal of a local official, the executioner, standing behind Tyndale, quickly tightened the noose, strangling him. Then an official took up a lighted torch and handed it to the executioner, who set the wood ablaze.COLLATION AND CONDITION:FRONTISPIECE, 1 page, fine copper plate engraving by N.

        Manuscript leaf from the Journal

      N.p.: n.d. 1 leaf, 4to, 9 3/4 x 7 1/2 inches, written on both sides in ink. In very good condition, one small horizontal brown stain not obscuring the text. An early draft in Thoreau?s Journal of part of what became the essay ?Night and Moonlight?. From October 1837 to November 1861, Thoreau kept a handwritten Journal that began as a conventional record of ideas, grew into a writer's notebook, and eventually became the principal imaginative work of his career. The source of much of his published writing, the Journal is also a record of both his interior life and his monumental studies of the natural history of his native Concord, Massachusetts. Single manuscript leaves are quite uncommon -- the last one at auction was in 2001 and none are currently listed online. The provenance of this leaf is private collection San Francisco -- perhaps bought at auction but when and where not known and not recorded in auction records. Thoreau's Journal ultimately filled forty-seven manuscript volumes; the Thoreau Edition is producing a new edition of these documents published by Princeton University Press that will be complete in sixteen printed volumes. Eight volumes have appeared; they include manuscript volumes dated from October 22, 1837, through September 3, 1854.

      London: Rudolph Ackermann, 1837. First edition, with errata slip at end. With 15 hand-colored engraved plates after J.T. Rawlins by A.W. Reeve and others. xiv, 208 pp. 1 vols. 8vo.

Some minor foxing to the title, tissue guards foxed not affecting plates. Fine. With 15 superb hand colored plates Eric Parker, in an 1930 edition of this book, notes: "'Gamonia' is valuable not only for its rarity and charm ... it is the first treatise devoted solely to the subject of pheasant rearing, covert shooting, and the management of woodlands for the special purpose of preserving game ... We can see much of what is in [Rawstorne's] mind in the treatment of the subjects he has chosen for illustration: in the quiet ridicule of the unskilled, in the hint of knowledge of how the thing could and should be done; in the cold and snow in which he likes to set his sportsmen seeking their quarry, and in the serenity of sunlight in which in each drawing stands Penwortham, his home."

        Manucript Receipt book, signed by merchants, officials, collectors, etc

      Philadelphia, Pa. & Burlington, Vt, 1837. 79 leaves on versos and rectos in ink, with close to 500 entries, each signed by a merchant, contractor, vendor. 1 vols. 6 x 3 /12. Original reversed calf binding, lower cover missing, spine defective. Elihu Chauncey's Receipt Book, Founder of Reading Railroad Elihu Chauncey (d. 1843), younger brother of the famous clergyman Charles, graduated from Yale in 1796 and moved to Philadelphia. He was Cashier of the Pennsylvania Bank, when Joseph Norris was its Presdent, then became interested in the contruction of the Philadelphia and Reading Railroad. He was elected the first President of that Company in 1834, and continued in office until 1842. "To Elihu Chauncey, probably more than to any other man, is due the organization and early development of that great railroad?He was a man of national importance. He became a complete master of politcal economy, and was, in that science, one of the most accmplished men the Country produced. He was active in public affairs, especially in the financial policy of the Government, and by reason of his rare ability, his opinions were sought whenever loans were to be floated by Municipal, State or Federal authorities." - Lewis, The History of an Old Philadelphia Land Title (Phila., 1934).An interesting peek into the business history of Philadelphia and Chauncey's private affairs in those years from 1830 to 1837, precisely when he was involved in building the railroad. His transactions with vendors, servants, craftsmen, workers, shopkeepers, tax collectors, are all recorded here, and Chauncey had a lot of money to spend, with houses on Walnut Street, with business interests also in Burlington, Vermont (where some of these transactions are recorded). He paid considerable taxes on his property (city, county, and "poor") and expended a substantial amount on the contruction of his houses on Walnut stree, as recorded in the pages (on stone, on carpenters, "gravel hawling", etc.). Chauncey also regularly rented a pew in the First Presbyterian Church to the tune of $36 per annum.

Wohl 1807 lernte Grimm Bettine Brentano (1785-1859) kennen, von der er zahlreiche Porträts anfertigte. In November 1808 zog er nach Landshut zu Brentano und dessen Schwager Friedrich Carl von Savigny (1779-1861). Auf ihre Vermittlung ging er nach München und erlernte Kupferstechen bei Carl Ernst Christoph Heß (1755-1828). Zugleich studierte er an der Münchner Akademie unter Andreas Seidl (1760-1834).

      London: Rudolph Ackermann, 1837. First edition, with errata slip at end. With 15 hand-colored engraved plates after J.T. Rawlins by A.W. Reeve and others. xiv, 208 pp. 1 vols. 8vo.

Some minor foxing to the title, tissue guards foxed not affecting plates. Fine. With 15 superb hand colored plates Eric Parker, in an 1930 edition of this book, notes: "'Gamonia' is valuable not only for its rarity and charm ... it is the first treatise devoted solely to the subject of pheasant rearing, covert shooting, and the management of woodlands for the special purpose of preserving game ... We can see much of what is in [Rawstorne's] mind in the treatment of the subjects he has chosen for illustration: in the quiet ridicule of the unskilled, in the hint of knowledge of how the thing could and should be done; in the cold and snow in which he likes to set his sportsmen seeking their quarry, and in the serenity of sunlight in which in each drawing stands Penwortham, his home."

Some browning and spotting to title-page and some occasional light spotting throughout mainly to plates, an excellent copy. First Edition, Sixth Thousand. "Rev. Williams was the ablest missionary to the Polynesian people, and his book was the most often printed and widely read of all the contemporary accounts" (Hill). The London Missionary Society sent Williams to the Society Islands in 1816, and he travelled widely in the region, visiting the Cook Islands, and discovering Rarotonga in the Hervey Islands. In 1834 he returned to England for 4 years, commissioning the printing of his Rarotongan translation of the New Testament, and raising some £4,000 to purchase and fit out the brig Camden, the first official LMS missionary vessel. "On his first missionary voyage in the Camden, on 20 November 1839 he landed with two companions at Dillons Bay on Eromanga in the southern New Hebrides. While walking inland the party was attacked by a party of islanders. James Harris was killed on the spot; the rest of the party fled to the ship's boats, but Williams was clubbed to death in the shallows. It was believed that their bodies were subsequently eaten" (ODNB). In his biography of Williams, The Rev. Dr. John Campbell of the Moorfields Tabernacle considered that, "for the purposes of history, he died in the proper manner, at the proper place, and at the proper time" (The Martyr of Erromanga, p228).
