Busse, Georg Heinrich.
(Rom). 1838. Original - Radierung. 33,5 x 43 cm. (Prägerand). In den Rändern stockfleckig, im Himmel minimal. Original - Radierung von und nach G.H. Busse. Vereinsblatt - Blatt für 1837/38. In der Platte signiert. Georg Heinrich Busse, geb. 17. Juli 1810, gest. zu Hannover 26. Febr. 1868. Früh verwaist erhielt er auf Betreiben des Pastors Meyer zu Bissendorf den ersten geregelten Zeichenunterricht bei dem Maler und Zeichenlehrer Giesewell in Hannover, ging dann mit einer Unterstützung aus königlicher Kasse nach Dresden, wo er bei Prof. Stölzel das Kupferstechen erlernte und 1833 für mehrere landschaftliche Zeichnungen ein Ehrenzeugnis, 1834 den ersten Preis in der Kupferstecherkunst erhielt. Ein auf Verwendung der Dresdener Akademie von der Regierung in Hannover bewilligter Zuschuss erleichterte ihm 1835 eine Reise nach Italien, die, da er neun Jahre dort verweilte, für seine ganze künstlerische Entwicklung entscheidend wurde. 1844 kehrte er in die Heimat zurück und erhielt dort eine Anstellung als Bibliothekkupferstecher, die ihm bis zu seinem Tode jährlich 400 Taler eintrug. Verheiratet war er zweimal, zuerst 1849 mit Antonie Eckermann aus Hamburg, die er in Italien kennen gelernt hatte und die ihm nach wenigen Jahren schon durch den Tod wieder entrissen wurde, dann 1858 mit Johanne Selle aus Gittelde, die ihm zwei Kinder geboren hat. Während seiner Lehrzeit in Hannover und Dresden und während des ganzen Aufenthaltes in Rom hatte sich B. nur als Zeichner, Kupferstecher und Radierer gezeigt, bald nach seiner Rückkehr in die Heimat trat er auch als Maler auf und liefert … [Click Below for Full Description]

NP [New York?]: John I. Donlevy, intaglio-chromographic and electrographic engraver, nd. Calligraphic bust-length oval portrait of George Washington, engraved by Donlevy, platemark 16 1/2 x 13 7/8 in. Matted, glazed and framed. Within the oval portrait which is based Stuart's "Lansdowne" image, Washington's face has been hand-colored. His birth and death dates are given in calligraphic style. At the head of the print is a small Masonic eye, and under the first word, a vignette of an eagle holding a flag and an olive branch in its beak, an arrows in its claw. Below the portrait is a small image of a hand, palm out, with a heart in the center. Washington's body, the frame around his portrait, and around the lettering is filled with different calligraphic and penmanship styles and types. Faintly creased along an old fold line, else a very nice image. The original image was engraved by R. Lowe in New York, "Presented to -- By -- As a Reward of Merit," (copyright 1838 by Samuel Green), and published by John Donlevy, N.Y. This is the second state, according to Charles Hart's "Catalogue of the Engraved Portraits of Washington," (NY: 1904). The text lines related to Lowe, Green and the Reward of Merit no longer appear, and Donlevy is listed as the engraver. [see entries 862 and 862a].

WELLSTED, James Raymond.
London: John Murray, 1838 - 2 volumes, octavo (223 ×140 mm). Recent tan half calf, raised bands to spines, compartments decorated in gilt, black morocco label to second, marbled sides and endpapers, all edges untrimmed. Mild toning to text-block, the occasional marginal spot, plates foxed, skilful restoration along top edge of large folding route map verso. A very good copy. Lithographic frontispiece to each volume and 5 similar plates, most by Louis Haghe from drawings by the author, 5 maps including a large folding route map and 2 further folding sketch maps, tables to the text. First edition of this valuable Arabian travel account, the entire first volume of which is dedicated to the author's travels in Oman and the Persian Gulf, and includes vivid eyewitness reports of the tribes making up the ruling families of today's United Arab Emirates. Wellsted (1805-1842), a British naval officer in the Bombay Marine, was "for a considerable period" (vol. 1 p. 252) employed in the survey of the Persian Gulf begun after the siege of Ra's al-Khaymah in 1819. In 1830 he was appointed second lieutenant of the Palinurus and undertook an important survey of the Red Sea and the Gulf of 'Aqabah, described in the second volume; in 1833-4 he surveyed the southern coast of Arabia and visited Socotra, before, in 1835, being granted permission to travel in Oman, partly to undertake official reconnaissance and out of a personal desire "to investigate the manners and customs of the people of inner Oman, to locate the important towns and oases, and to investigate the topography of the country" ( … [Click Below for Full Description]

SALE, George (d. 1736)
London: Printed for Charles Daly, 1838. Cloth. Near Fine. 8vo; xiv, [2], 133, 471, [1]pp, with all five plates present and in superb condition: frontispiece of a folding view and plan of the Temple of Mecca; three genealogical tables (2 folding), and a folding map of Arabia and the surrounding countries. Original green cloth, the sides stamped in blind with acanthus leaf designs and borders, the spine lettered in gilt, very expertly rebacked by Fitterer. Provenance: bookplate of Standish McCleary, bearing the motto, "Faciendi Plures Libros Nullus Est Finis," to the front fly leaf. A rare survival (WorldCat lists only six copies), the contents clean and bright, the binding tight and secure with no loose or missing pages. OCLC Number: 505118764. Sale's translation, originally published in 1734, remained the most widely available English rendition for more than 200 years, and is still widely available today, with the recent release of an electronic edition for the Kindle. Sale provided numerous notes and a "Preliminary Discourse" manifesting in-depth knowledge of Eastern habits, manners, traditions, and laws. According to the ODNB, as late as 1921, "Edward Denison Ross claimed that Sale's version had not been superseded by any subsequent translation, and that his discourse still remained the best introduction in any European language to the study of Islam. More than fifty years later Sale's objectivity still guarded him from criticism in Edward Said's Orientalism (1978)." Remarkable, considering that Sale's translation was only the second English version, the first, in 1649, c … [Click Below for Full Description]

This vessel is now lying in the West India Export Dock, nearly ready for sea, and may be viewed by the Subscribers and Friends of the Missionary Society in all next week; that is to say, from Monday Morning, April the 2nd, to Saturday, April the 7th, 1838. By order of the Directors, John Arundel, Home Secretary. Mision House, March 29, 1838. London : London Missionary Society, 1838.

After a sojourn Sydney, he sailed for the Society Islands (Tahiti) and established a mission on Raiatea. Throughout the next seventeen years he devoted himself to the conversion of Polynesians to Christianity, most notably through his missions in the Cook Islands and Samoa. He returned to England in 1834, where he published both a translation of the New Testament in the Rarotongan language and a hugely successful memoir,Narrative of Missionary Enterprises in the South Sea Islands. He sailed again for Polynesia and Sydney on the Camdenin 1838. In 1839, along with fellow missionary James Harris, he was killed and eaten by cannibals on the island of Erromango in the New Hebrides.

DeWitt, Charles A
Guatemala, August, 1838. Half Calf. Very Good. 8vo. 22 by 15.5 cm. 83 pages of song lyrics, written in a very neat hand by Mr. DeWitt. In the back are four pages of a table of contents, signifying each song by its first line, as is the convention in opera. In the main part, some of the songs have titles, while many are simply referred to as "Otros". In between the songs and the table of contents are many blank leaves. Without music or musical notation, the lyrics pass as standalone poetry, as indeed lyrics often deserve to be so regarded. Love songs of course dominate. Unusual is a song to Lesbia -- was this just a name of someone? This collection strikes us as a highly unusual piece of contemporary cultural archaeology. We are not in a position to judge whether among the songs here were ones that had widespread popularity beyond Guatemala, or to what extent these are lost lyrics. Charles DeWitt (1822-1906) went to Guatemala when he was eleven with his father who had been appointed Charge d'Affairs there, and he remained until 1838. Upon his return to the states he joined the Erie & New York Railroad, was later an agent for its steamboat operation, and came to hold management positions at various companies, including American Express. Condition: rebacked. Wear to calf corners.

"A.L.F."
: who died lately, leaving a princely fortune of nearly one million Sterling. With an appendix on emigration and transportation to the Australian colonies. By A.L.F. Late of New South Wales. [Extracts from "the Botany Bay Rothschild" have been given in the Times, Weekly Dispatch, Sun, Globe, Morning Advertiser, &c.].Caption title: The Botany Bay Rothschild. London : Published by J. Pattie, 4, Bridges Street, Catherine Street, Strand, 1838. Octavo, disbound, presentation copy inscibed on the title "To the Colonia Society with the Author's Compliments"; title also with early ownership inscription scratched out at top edge and an interesting early annotation in pencil, "of Youlguare", preceding the phrase "in Botany Bay"; 16 pp, lacking the frontispiece plate; very faint vertical crease, last page a little grubby, contents clean. Ferguson, 2645. Rare. A near contemporary biographical sketch relating the extraordinary story of Samuel Terry (1776?-1838), an ex-convict who amassed a fortune through buying and selling property in New South Wales after his emancipation in 1807. (See Gwyneth Dow's entry on Samuel Terry in theADB). Although the present copy lacks the frontispiece, this is most definitely an obscure pamphlet, one for which we can trace no previous sale records. Copies are recorded in five Australian collections (University of Melbourne Library; State Library of New South Wales; National Library of Australia; State Library of South Australia; Royal Geographical Society of South Australia).
