        A huge, attractive, and rare membership certificate for missionaries to China - with an elaborate pictorial engraving, possibly unique

      n.p., [c. 1840]. 20.5" x 16". "Partly-printed Document Signed, ""Saml: Miller,"" as President of the Board of Foreign Missions of the Presbyterian Church, 1 page, 20.5"" x 16"", [c. 1840], an engrossed membership certificate featuring a superb illustration at center, 13.25"" x 8"", and titled in Chinese and English at top: ""This is the word of the Lord, not by might nor by power, but by my Spring, saith the Lord of hosts"". Two minor expertly repaired tears do not affect text or engraving, typical folds, else very good.The engraving, signed ""Miss M.K.L."" in print below the plate, is dominated by a large view of two populated shores, with a sailing ship at center beneath the words: ""GO YE INTO ALL THE WORLD AND PREACH THE GOSPEL."" At left, an American crowd of well-wishers gather on the dock to bid farewell to departing missionaries with a church and prominent buildings. Just to the left, printed vertically, are the words: ""How shall thy believe in him of whom they have not heard, and how shall they hear without a preacher, and how shall they preach except they be sent."" On the other shore a smaller crowd mingles before several what appear to be several temples exhibiting various Asian architectural styles. Beneath the main plate is an image of a printing press and a globe. To the right, again printed vertically, are the words: ""The people which sat in darkness saw great light and to them which sat in the region and shadow of death, light is sprung up.""Preacher and historian Samuel Miller (1769-1850) was a prolific writer and major figure in the Presbyterian Church. In 1835, while teaching at the Princeton Theological Seminary, he published an influential sermon, ""The Earth Filled With the Glory of the Lord,"" and was instrumental in founding the Board of Foreign Missions in 1837. The Board of Foreign Missions sent its first representatives to China in 1843 and were soon based in Guangzhou, Hainan, Macau, Shanghai, spreading into other parts of the country These Presbyterian missionaries ran hospitals, as well as a type foundry producing Chinese type in seven sizes.Rare. While we have seen membership certificates for the Board of Foreign Missions, we have never encountered one this elaborate or this early. "

      L. and G. Seeley, London, 1840. Hardcover. Fine. "John Bunyan could be said to have authored one of the most influential books in the English language. But 'The Pilgrim's Progress' is so much more than an historical novel. Bunyan's plan for his readers is for them to travel through this book as an adventure through the Christian life - retold on paper and in pictures. The story of Christian and his companions has been a favourite for generations. John Bunyan's imaginative text brings out the same, practical, necessary lessons that everyone needs to know..." [Pub. Info] With original notes by the Rev. Thomas Scott. Full leather; gold on all page edges; gold tooling on cover; minor wear to hinge areas of outside covers; slight wear to the extremities. This is a deluxe and beautiful edition.

        The Holy Bible. In Tamil.

      We are told by Darlow and Moule that this is "A new edition of . . . [the Tamil Bible of 1840]; with fresh chapter-headings and dates, translated from the English Bible by M. Winslow." While Winslow was the translator of these elements, "The Old Testament, [was] translated from the original by J.P. Fabricius; [and] the New Testament by the Rev. C.T.E. Rhenius and revised by the Committee of the Madras Auxiliary Bible Society."The first complete translation of the Bible into Tamil appeared in 1727. This is only the second complete Bible in Tamil in one volume. The English title-page is followed by a title-page in Tamil script; the text of the Bible is => entirely in Tamil script, as is the pagination. The N.T. has a separate title page in English and Tamil. The translators were a German missionary of the Lutheran faith who was a scholar of the Tamil language (Johann Philipp Fabricius, 1711-791) and a German-born missionary of the Church Mission Society (Charles Theophilus Ewald Rhenius, 1790-1838).

Romberg's discussion of tabes dorsalis, lucid in clinical details and brilliant in his surmise as to the site of the initial pathological changes, contains the classic remark that ataxics cannot stand with their eyes shut (Romberg's sign) . . . (ed. 1, p. 795)" Haymaker & Schiller, Founders of Neurology, p. 508. - - "We can regard him as the first clinical neurologist" Spillane, Doctrine of the Nerves, p. 289; 279-89). - - "The first man to bring order and system to neurology was Moritz Heinrich Romberg (1795-1873), professor of pathology and director of the University Hospital in Berlin. (...)Romberg's work culminated in his classic text "Lehrbuch der Nerverkankheiten des Menschen", which was the first systematic treatise in neurology and a milestone in the development of clinical neurology. (...) Romberg accepted the difference between the function of the anterior and posterior roots of the spinal cord und used this distinction in motor and sensory nerves as a basis for the division of his textbook into two sections, "Neuroses of Sensibility" and "Neurosis of Motility". The first section describes abnormal sensory function - including pain, hyperesthesia and anesthesia - affecting various parts of the body; the second section on motor disorders is separated into spasm, tremor and paralysis, and includes other motor symptoms that occur in neurological disease. Although localization of function and disease in the nervous system was not to be clarified for another twenty or thirty years, Romberg had made a significant step in this direction from the old classification of neurological disorders into merly palsy, apoplexy and epilepsy that had generally existed from Hippocrates to Cooke. - In Romberg's "sensory" section there is a description of branchial and sciatic neuritis, peripheral neuritis and causalgia, neuromas, ciliary neuralgia, facial neuralgia, various forms of headache and other conditions recognized today. Romberg also described position sense, pointing out that Bell (1826) first directed attention to this, and saying of Bell that "his observations are as ingenious as they are conclusive". (...)The section on motor diseases contains a long description of muscular spasms, particularly those associated with breathing and talking, as well as presentations of chorea, tetanus, epilepsy, facial paralysis and his classic elucidation of tabes doralis. He recognized tabes as a distinct clinical entity and appropriated for it the designation tabes dorsalis. Not only did Romberg note the insecurity of stance and gait, but he also recognized the occurrence of amblyopia; he even recorded that when the optic nerve is not involved, there is "a change of the pupils of one or both eyes, consisting in contraction with loss of motion". L.C. McHenry: Garrison's History of Neurology 278.ff." - Romberg inaugurated the modern era in the study of diseases of the nervous system. His 'Lehrbuch' is the first formal treatise in this field. - - Garrison-Morton No.4528

        To Her Most Gracious Majesty Queen Victoria, This Map of the World on Mercator's Projection is most respectfully dedicated .

      Published by J. and C. Walker . and William Colling Hobson, London 1840 - Large engraved case map, full period hand coloring, dissected and linen-backed as issued. The map with insets of both poles and surrounded by descriptive panels of text. With early manuscript additions in the Arctic. Housed in the original green cloth case. Stunning large format case map of the World, featuring Texas as a Republic: with beautiful period hand coloring The surrounding panels of text provide an extraordinary amount of information on the countries of the world: population, size of countries, chief productions, important towns and cities, values of imports and exports, national debt, number of naval vessels and distances surround the map of the world. The map itself is highly detailed for a world map, and includes the very latest of the geographic discoveries of its time, particularly along the northwest coast of America and in the Arctic. Indeed, an early owner has furthered this with manuscript ink additions, charting discoveries made by Robert McClure on his first navigation of the northwest passage in 1850-54. Perhaps the most interesting mapping, however, is the bold depiction of Texas as a Republic, here distinctly colored in purple and with a separate entry in the text surround listing its population as 38,000. A wonderful example of a rare and desirable case map of the world. Rumsey 3820. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      Great Marlborough Street, London : Henry Colburn, 1840. Mainly the notes and relations of Lieutenant Ormsby, of the Indian navy, prepared for the press by Wellsted.--Preface. ames Raymond Wellsted (1805- 1842) was a lieutenant in the Indian navy who travelled extensively on the Arabian Peninsula in the 1830s.As second lieutenant on the East India Company's survey brig Palinurus under Captain Robert Moresby, Wellsted took part in the detailed survey of the Gulf of 'Aqabah and the northern part of the Red Sea in 1830.

        Vier Kinder beim Spielen, rechts schaut die Mutter durch die Tür, das älteste der Kinder, ein Mädchen, windet einen Blütenkranz.

      . Bleistift, mit Bleistiftlinie umrandet, auf Pauspapier, aufgezogen, innerhalb der Darstellung signiert und datiert "Meyer v. Br. 1840", mit Farbangaben unter der Darstellung. 13,6:10,8 cm. Entwurf für eine farbige Arbeit, ein Aquarell oder ein Gemälde. Provenienz: Aus dem Künstlernachlaß. Vergleichsliteratur: Fr.W. Alexander: Johann Georg Meyer von Bremen. Das Lebensbild eines deutschen Genremalers. Leipzig, E.A. Seemann, 1910, Abb. 12 und 13. Diese beiden Abbildungen zeigen vergleichbare Architekturskizzen aus Bacharach und Wellmich bei St. Goarshausen.. Georg Meyer von Bremen ging 1833 im Alter von 20 Jahren nach Düsseldorf, um an einer der geachtesten Kunstakademien des Landes zu studieren. Er wurde hier erst Schüler des Nazareners J. Wintergerst (1783-1867) und des Historienmalers K.F. Sohn (1805-1867), dann besuchte er die Meisterklasse wohl unter der Leitung des Akademiedirektors W. von Schadow (1788-1862). Seit 1841 war er in Düsseldorf als freischaffender Maler tätig. 1848 war er Gründungsmitglied des "Künstler-Verein Malkasten". Studienreisen durch Deutschland (Hessen und Bayern), nach Berchtesgaden, in das Salzkammergut und der Schweiz brachten die Hinwendung zu volkstümlichen Genrebildern, vor allem gemütvolle Familiendarstellungen und Szenen aus dem Kinderleben. Weitere Reisen führten ihn nach Brüssel und Antwerpen. 1850 erhielt er die Kleine Goldene Medaille. 1852 siedelte er nach Berlin über, wo er es nach wenigen Jahren zu großem, auch internationalem Erfolg brachte, vor allem bei den in die USA emigrierenden deutschen Auswanderern; zu seinen prominentesten Kunden zählten das russische Kaiserhaus und die preußische Königsfamilie. Zwei Jahre nach dem Umzug wurde er zum Professor an die Berliner Akademie berufen. 1855 wurde ihm der belgische Leopoldsorden überreicht, 1857 wurde er Mitglied der Academie des Arts in Amsterdam. Werke Meyer von Bremens besitzen u.a. das Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, das Metropolitan Museum New York, die Nationalgalerie Berlin, die Kunsthalle Bremen und das Stadtmuseum Danzig.

        "Wien von Galizinberg". Mittig bezeichnet und links unten signiert "Wigand".

      Wien um 1840.. Bildausschnitt ca. 5,8 x 8,4 cm, Blattgröße ca. 8 x 10,5 cm.. Vgl. Thieme-B. XXXV, 549 und Fuchs, Die österr. Maler des 19. Jhdts., K 131.- Blick vom Gallitzinberg, Wien-Ottakring, auf Wien, im Vordergrund eine Kutsche.- Markante und für Wigand typische Arbeit. Wigand (1771-1846) malte überwiegend Altwiener Miniaturveduten mit gut charakterisierter winziger Staffage. "... Seine Art, Pferde darzustellen, ist für ihn außerordentlich charakteristisch. Er unterhielt eine Werkstatt, die auf Ansichten aus Wien und seiner Umgebung spezialisiert war und Bildchen für Kassetten, Briefbeschwerer, Lampenschirme und ähnliches lieferte..." (Fuchs). "... sein Studium bei Johann Christian und Friedrich August Brand sowie später in der Klasse für Historienmalerei von Heinrich Füger gilt als gesichert. Schon bald wandte er sein gesamtes Interesse der feinen und delikaten Arbeit an Bild-Miniaturen zu. Seine Motive suchte er in den Ansichten seiner Heimatstadt, später auch in besonderen historischen Gegebenheiten oder Festen. Seine Arbeit besticht durch das sich im Laufe seiner Entwicklung verändernde, faszinierende Kolorit und durch seine exakte Linienführung, die die Betrachtung - auch mit dem Vergrößerungsglas - zur besonderen Freude werden lässt. Wigands große Leistung besteht nicht in bloßer Verkleinerung einer Komposition, sondern in der gleichzeitigen Umsetzung... " (Prof. Christian Scheed).

        View of the the Country round Hobart Town in Van Dieman's Land; reduced on zinc by G. Scharf from a drawing by Lycett in the collection of Professor Buckland at Oxford

      London: Charles Hullmandel, 1840. Lithograph on paper, 225 x 827 mm.; mounted, and in a handsome nineteenth century frame. A rare and most attractive panorama of Hobart, prepared from a drawing by the famous convict artist Joseph Lycett and possibly based on earlier drawings by G. W. Evans, the deputy surveyor (it is generally believed that Lycett did not visit Tasmania during his time in Australia, despite the large number of Tasmanian views in his famous Views in Australia). Lycett had arrived in New South Wales as a convict in 1814. Trained as a portrait and miniature painter in Staffordshire, his services as a professional artist were much in demand in the early years of the colony.Lycett was soon working for the publisher Absalom West. He was then appointed artist to Major-General Macquarie, the governor of New South Wales. Impressed with Lycett's talents, Macquarie sent three of his drawings to Earl Bathurst, Secretary of the Colonies who, it is supposed in payment, granted a pardon to the artist. Little is known of the artist's life after leaving Australia.Based on a drawing in his possession, this rare work was commissioned by Professor Buckland an Oxford academic and a geologist and palaeontologist. "A letter dated 17 January 1840 from Professor Buckland to the botanist Robert Brown confirms both the date and his ownership of the drawing: 'Scharf is drawing for me on zinc a reduction of my large drawing by Lycett of Hobart Town & I am anxious to get the trees correct. I will thank you to call at 14 Francis Street, Tottenham Court Road - where the drawing now is and give a word or 2 of advice'." (McPhee, Joseph Lycett, page 271)The lithographer George Scharf had studied lithography in Germany before enlisting in the British Army. Later he worked in London with several lithographic publishers including Rudolph Ackermann and Charles Hullmandel. Hullmandel who printed this panorama had his own lithographic press: "Hullmandel's refinement of the lithographic process achieved greater subtlety and graduations of tone, as well as the ability to create a soft wash of colour" (McPhee, Joseph Lycett, page 271).This fine panoramic view of Hobart is a superbly executed and beautiful lithograph, rare in any form, is an example of the state with the artist's name reading "Lycet" and "Profefsor" misspelled. Apart from a crease to the upper left hand side it is in remarkably good condition in a handsome nineteenth century timber frame.
