        An Inaugural Discourse on Arabic and Sanskrit Literature, delivered in New Haven, Wednesday, August 16, 1843

      New Haven: Printed by B.L. Hamlen, 1843. Printed for Private Circulation. 51 pp. 1 vols. 8vo. Cream printed wrappers. Minor chipping, spine split, some foxing, else Very Good. Printed for Private Circulation. 51 pp. 1 vols. 8vo. Presentation from America's 'First Arabist of Note'. Inscribed on front cover "Rev. Dr. Bacon with the respects of the author." Edward Elbridge Salisbury (1814-1901), "America's first Arabist of note", studied theology and Hebrew, and graduated from Yale in the class of 1832. He travelled to Europe in 1837 to study Arabic with the great French orientalist Sylvestre de Sacy, and then studied Sanskrit and philology under Franz Bopp in Berlin. "In 1841 Salisbury was appointed Professor of Arabic and Sanskrit at Yale. This was the first Orientalist teaching post in the United States" (Irwin). He studied further in Bonn and Paris before returning to take up the professorship in 1843, upon which occasion this Discourse was presented. It is a brisk and wide ranging survey of "the subject of oriental learning, particularly those two great departments of it of which the Sanskrit and the Arabic languages are the key". "Without a knowledge of Arabic how little can that transitory period of history be understood, when upon the fall of the Byzantine empire the Arabs succeeded, as not only the preservers, but the enlargers of science, the only nation which could be called really civilized, for several centuries." In addition to sketching the outlines of Arabic poetical and religious literature, Salisbury touches upon the roots and flowering of Sanskrit literature, as well as the importance of the language in understanding Hindu and Buddhist philosophy. Salisbury notes how in the preceding decades, European scholars had opened the doors of learning about the East, and suggests that America must not ne left behind by the further advance of learning. In 1842, Salisbury was one of the founders of the American Oriental Society. He served as editor of its Journal from 1846 to 1863 and assumed the costs of acquiring Oriental type fonts and the Journal's production. One of his contributions for 1847 was the first scholarly article on Buddhism published in the U.S., and his many essays also included the first American publication on cuneiform. In the decade during which he taught Sanskrit, Salisbury had only two students. One of them was William Dwight Whitney, "who became one of the ablest Sanskritists of his time. ... With characteristic generosity and self-effacement, Salisbury resigned his professorship in Sanskrit in Whitney's favor, endowing the chair from his own resources (1853-1854). He increased the endowment in 1869 when Harvard attempted to draw Whitney to its own faculty" (ANB). The inscription on this copy of the Inaugural Discourse is to Leonard Bacon, Sr. (1802-1881) who from 1825 until his death was pastor of the First Church (Congregational) in New Haven. In 1843, Bacon was one of the founders of the New Englander (later the Yale Review) to which Salisbury was a regular contributor. A cornerstone of American engagement with the languages and ideas of the Arab and Indian cultures, with a fine association. See Robert Irwin, Dangerous Knowledge pp. 213-4

        [AUTOGRAPH MANUSCRIPT OF Tratado elemental teórico- practico de los Cónsules de España en paises etrangeros, presentado al Ministerio de Estado, por el Cónsul de S. M. en el Estado de Yucatan]

      [Campeche, 1843. [59]pp. plus a quarto bifolium bearing title bound at beginning of text. Folio. Modern three-quarter red morocco and cloth, gilt. Boards bowed, light rubbing to corners and spine ends. Central horizontal crease throughout, otherwise clean. Near fine. An extensive unpublished manuscript manual of diplomacy written for the use of Spanish consuls and commercial agents stationed in foreign countries by Gerónimo Ferrer y Valls (1797-1851), then the Spanish consul and commercial agent in Campeche, Yucatan, and addressed to Antonio González y González (1792-1876), then in his second term as Spain's Prime Minister. Ferrer y Valls explains that he wrote this treatise for the benefit of his consular colleagues and trade agents, having himself profited from Agustín de Letamendi's ATRIBUCIONES CONSULARES (1835). Arranged in thirty-six chapters, the text includes examples drawn from the author's own experience in Campeche. Following a discussion of commerce in general and the history of Spanish consulates, Ferrer y Valls examines the skills required by a consul and vice consul, arguing that such a figure should also undertake the role of the commercial agent. Consular documents are examined: the bill of health for the port for which the consul was responsible, the authentication of documents, the notification of petitions, and the books to be kept. These include a letter book of ministerial correspondence and another of correspondence with authorities within the country; a register of passports issued by the consul; a log of the entry and exit of ships; a book of certificates stating the origin of goods; a register of Spanish citizens resident in the country; and a book of sea protests, proxies, deeds, wills, and other public acts. Discussion of the jurisdiction of Spanish consuls is followed by a description of consular services and fees, with a table of tariffs. A particularly interesting example of a consular report given here is a table for the first quarter of 1842 recording imports and exports shipped into and out of the port of Campeche by Spanish merchant vessels. The treatise ends with a short chapter on inventories, listing, as an example, the papers, books, and effects in the consulate at Campeche. At the time of writing this treatise Ferrer y Valls was already an established author, having published, among other works, the similarly titled TRATADO ELEMENTAL TEÓRICO-PRÁCTICO DE RELACIONES COMERCIALES... in 1833, and edited a periodical entitled TECNOLÓGICO NACIONAL DE AGRICULTURA, ARTES INDUSTRIALES, CIENCIAS, COMERCIO Y LITERATURA in 1834. That Ferrer y Valls also intended to publish this manuscript is clear: not only is it a fair copy, with only a few corrections and cross-outs, but it contains a copy of a letter from the author, and Prime Minister Antonio González y Gonzálezs reply, regarding its printing. The author estimates the cost of printing and paper for 500 copies at no more than 150 pesos and states that if the government cannot meet the expense, he would, with González's approval, arrange the printing himself. In an interesting aside, Ferrer y Valls requests transfer to the new consulate in Montevideo, as the climate in Campeche is not congenial to his health. González's reply must have come as a disappointment on both accounts: it would not be appropriate for his ministry to publish the TRATADO, as it might give the work an authority which only government-issued instructions could have on such matters; as for the transfer, no definite decision had yet been made on the establishment of a consulate in Montevideo. That Ferrer y Valls continued to write, however, is clear from the publication of his CARTAS HISTÓRICAS, FILOSÓFICAS, ESTADÍSTICAS, AGRÍCOLAS, INDUSTRIALES Y MERCANTILES in 1846. The text of the TRATADO is followed by a copy of a letter from Ferrer y Valls, dated Dec. 26, 1842, to the Secretary of the Office of the Ministry of State in Madrid, enclosing an appendix, and the Secretary's reply of March 10, 1843. The appendix includes a "Copy of the case relative to the dispatch of passports to Spanish subjects by the commercial agent of Spain in Yucatan promoted by the government of the said state on 2 November 1841 and ended in favour of the representative of her majesty on 14 October 1842;" "A verbal claim made by the commercial agent of Spain in Yucatan on 18 October 1842 to the commander of the first division of operations for excluding the Spanish subject Juan Gual from the armed services;" and "A preventive communication directed by the commercial agent of Spain in Yucatan to the general in chief of the Mexican expeditionary troops and naval forces of the same state" of November 1842. A marvelous inside view of Spanish diplomatic relations, written in Mexico in the mid-19th century.

      Delhi [India]: August, 1843., 1843.. Good. - Over 123 words penned on an 8-1/4 inch high by 5-1/2 inch wide sheet of light blue paper. Titled "Sonnet / On the Morning of the 1st of August, the Anniversary of Emancipation", a magnificent 14-line anti-slavery sonnet that concludes with the powerful statement "... It is decreed! not far remote the time, / When freedom's trump shall sound through / every clime!". Signed "Geo. Thompson". Mounted with glue from the top of the verso onto a strip of heavier stock from an album, the letter is folded several times horizontally and vertically, with short teats to the edges of the folds. A piece is clipped from the top left corner and the right edge is creased and lightly chipped near the bottom. Apparently penned on a larger sheet with a portion of the mailing address with a red postal cancellation stamp from India penned on the verso. Good. The Slavery Abolition Act passed by the UK Parliament in 1833 came into force on August 1, 1834.The British antislavery orator and activist George Donisthorpe Thompson (1804-1878) worked toward the abolition of slavery through lecture tour and by introducing legislation while serving as a member of Parliament. An able orator, he was hired by the London Anti-Slavery Society in 1831. While in Scotland in 1832, where he became interested in abolishing slavery in the United States as well as other parts of the world, he met William Lloyd Garrison and the African-American abolitionist Nathaniel Paul. Invited to visit New England by Garrison, he traveled to the US in 1834 where he drew the attention of pro-slavery supporters and was forced to flee for his life. The Hobart Town Courier later printed a letter in which Thompson stated that he had "...left the United Sates to escape the asassins knife...", the editor noting that attempts had been made to "burn and murder" him in several US towns. He returned to the US following the passing of the Fugitive Slave Law in 1850. By then, the abolitionist movement having substantially grown and gained in influence, Thompson found a warmer welcome. Returning to London, he and his son founded the London Emancipation Society which supported the Union during the Civil War. Returning to America, allied himself with William Wells Brown and met President Abraham Lincoln. Throughout his life, Thompson was a powerful voice for emancipation. He supported East Indian reform, free trade, Chartism, non-resistance and the peace movement, often protesting legislation that offered only limited restriction on slavery.A remarkable example of the autograph of one of history's greatest abolitionist.

        Secrets merveilleux de la magie naturelle & cabalistique du Petit Albert, traduits exactement sur l'original Latin, intitule: Alberti Parvi Lucii libellus de mirabilibus naturae arcanis

      Paris: B. Renaud, 1843. Very good antiquarian condition. Duodecimo. 144 pp. With woodcut frontispiece and 5 folding woodcut plates. Uncut copy in original printed wrappers with lithograph of an astronomer and an observatory on back cover (a little worn and soiled). Strange and wonderful magic grimoire in original unsophisticated state. The so-called "Little Albert" is a well-known collection of magical absurdities and impossiblilities. Brought down to the smallest hamlets in the saddlebags of salesmen, it represents a phenomenal publishing success, despite its reputation -- or because of it. "The "Little Albert" symbolises the huge cultural impact of the cheap print revolution of the early 18th century. The flood gates of magical knowledge were opened during the so-called Enlightenment and the Petit Albert became a name to conjure with across France and its overseas colonies. As well as practical household tips it included spells to catch fish, charms for healing, and instructions on how to make a Hand of Glory, which would render one invisible." (SOURCE: "Owen Davies's top 10 grimoires" in: The Guardian, 8 April 2009). "C'est parmi les livres populaires, le plus celebre et peut-etre le plus absurde... Il est tout naturel que le livre des secrets ait ete attribue a Albert le Grand, car ce docteur, tres savant pour son epoque, eut, parmi ces contemporains, la reputation d'etre sorcier. Le Livre des Secrets du Petit Albert est moins complet, mais le fonds reste le meme" (Brunet). The Petit Albert contained instructions on how to be a magician, as well as practical household tips, such as how to catch fish, and information about how to make your own Hand of Glory – which would give you powers of invisibility. Cf. Ferguson, "Bibliotheca Chemica" p. 17 & Ferguson, "Bibliographical notes on Books of Secrets," Part IV.

        Elements of electro-metallurgy. ...... Second edition, revised, corrected, considerably enlarged, illustrated with electrotypes and numerous woodcuts.

      London: E. Palmer; Longman, Brown, Green, and Longmans. 1843. 8vo., frontispiece (the arms of Prince Albert the Prince Consort) printed in gold on glazed paper, title-page also printed on glazed paper with a central device of a medal celebrating the contributions of Galvani, Volta and others to the science of electricity, xvi + 338pp., with 37 woodcut figures in the text, new endpapers, contemporary half calf, rebacked, labelled and lettered in gilt. A very good copy inscribed on the flyleaf: 'W. Keneely Bridgman with a letter from the author'> and with an A.L.S. from Alfred Smee to Bridgman tipped in.>* Alfred Smee (1818-1877) was not only a leading chemist in the development and use of electro-metallurgy - and in particular in the precise manufacture of electrotype copies - but was also, from 1841, surgeon-general to the Bank of England. * The autograph letter, signed by Smee, tipped in to this presentation copy, dated 'Bank of England May 18th 1841', comprises some 34 closely written lines. It is largely a technical letter addressing the question of heterogeneous adhesion of metals and gases.

        7 eigenh. Briefe m. Unterschrift.

      Zus. 29 S., 8. Auf Briefpapier mit gedrucktem Briefkopf Oeuvre de la Sainte Enfante. Dieses Kindermissionswerk geht auf eine französische Initiative des Bischofs Charles de Forbin Janson von Nancy zurück. Im Mai 1843 wurde dort das Kinderhilfswerk Oeuvre de la Sainte Enfance (deutsch: Werk der heiligen Kindheit) gegründet. Bereits im Jahr 1856 wurde der Verein von Papst Pius IX. als kirchlicher Verein anerkannt und erhielt einen Kardinal als Protektor. - Der Empfänger der auf Französisch abgefassten Briefe ist Jacques (Jacob) Mislin (1807-1878). Der aus ärmlichen Verhältnissen stammende Mislin konnte dank seines Onkels an der berühmten Lehranstalt von Porrentruy im Schweizer Kanton Bern studieren, wo er nicht viel später auch selbst unterrichten sollte. Der 1830 zum Priester geweihte kath. Theologe wurde 1836 auf Vermittlung des Grafen von Bombelle an den Wiener Hof berufen, wo er einer der Lehrer der Söhne von Erzherzog Franz Karl und Erzherzogin Sophie wurde und damit sowohl den zukünftigen Kaiser Franz Joseph wie auch Erzherzog Ferdinand Maximilian (später Kaiser Max von Mexiko) unterrichtete (u.a. auch in Erdkunde). Vor der Revolution von 1848 unternahm Mislin eine Pilgerreise von Wien über Budapest und Konstantinopel nach Jersusalem. Der danach erschienene Reisebericht wurde in mehrere Sprachen übersetzt und mehrfach nachgedruckt. In den folgenden Jahren leitete er die Bibliothek am Hof der Herzogin von Parma, Erzherzogin Marie Louise, wurde zum Abt von St. Maria von Deg (Ungarn), geheimer Kämmerer u. Hausprälat Papst Pius' XI., Apostolischer Pronotar, Kanoniker der Kathedrale von Großwardein, Träger zahlr. Orden (u.a. von Spanien, Parma u. des Ritterordens vom Heiligen Grab zu Jerusalem) sowie Mitglied zahlr. Akademien. Der Verfasser zahlr. Publikationen und Vertraute des belgischen Königs und des Grafen von Chambord blieb nach der Rückkehr von seiner Pilgerreise in Wien, wo er weiterhin in persönlichem Kontakt mit dem Kaiserhaus stand. - In einem numerierten, von Mislin eigenh. beschrifteten Papierumschlag. - Beiligend 8 Briefe von Molinier, Kanonikus dieses Missionswerkes (Paris, 1854-1857. Zus. 22 S., 8) auf demselben Briefpapier sowie eine Abschrift eines Briefes. -

        Sailing Directions for the Inner Route to Torres Strait. From Break-Sea Spit to Booby Island.

      Port Stephens: Printed by the Author, 1843. Small quarto, iv, 14 pp.; 20th-century dark morocco with gilt lettering. Exceptionally rare: printed only for private circulation on King's private press in Port Stephens (at the time he was still serving in the region as the representative of the Australian Agricultural Company). This is the only copy of this book Hordern House has ever sold, offered here for the second time. The rarest of King's works, and of signal importance for coastal voyage generally and the Great Barrier Reef specifically, this is a rare and significant survival.In his preface King comments that "I have been induced to print off a few copies" because he felt that sailing captains were losing what he considered their prejudice against what he had called the "inner route", a much quicker passage even though it required the ships to anchor at night. This was the first separate edition of these sailing directions, which had previously only been published as an article in the New South Wales Calendar and General Post Office Directory. Wantrup notes that the work is "Very rare... This work was published privately in a pioneering settlement by one of the great Australian discoverers and the foremost native-born Australian of his day. Unfortunately it is a very rare work and no copy has appeared for sale in many years" (Australian Rare Books).It is testament to the work's importance that the Hydrographic Office of the Admiralty republished it in 1849, together with added notes by Blackwood on the "outer route", around the time that the Admiralty also published Australian Views North-East Coast. Provenance: Commander Ingleton, with his distinctive bookplate; private collection (Sydney). In fine condition in modern binding.

        The seven Chartist and military discourses libelled by the marquis of Abercorn, and other heritors of the Abbey parish. To which are added, four other discourses formerly published, with one or two more as a specimen of the author's mode of treating other scripture topics. With an appendix.

      Paisley, published by the author and sold by M. Paterson (and others), 1843. 8vo., viii + 424pp., occasional light spotting and soiling, old ownership inscription in pencil on p.[1], contemporary black half calf, spine gilt, slightly rubbed, rebacked preserving the original spine. First edition. Patrick Brewster, (1788-1859), a Church of Scotland minister and political activist, had become a prominent member of the Chartist movement by the late 1830s. 'However, he failed to win election to the national convention of Chartists, and despite an appearance on the same platform as Feargus O'Connor (1796–1855) in 1839 his vehement commitment to moral force alone lost him rank and file support. By 1841 he was turning to Joseph Sturge's Complete Suffrage Union, in the hope of a rapprochement between the two movements that would promote moral-force views. Ironically, just as Brewster was being sidelined within the Chartist movement, the Paisley presbytery, which had for some time been concerned by his political activities, chose to proceed against him. The immediate cause was his decision to preach on the rights of the poor at a Chartist church in Glasgow in 1841. After some preliminary actions a libel was served at the instance of the marquess of Abercorn and other heritors of the abbey parish in February 1843, but it was subsequently cancelled in December in the changed circumstances of the Disruption. Brewster's opinions were unchanged: he published The Seven Chartist and Military Discourses> (1843), in which he maintained that Christian churches had always opposed unjust rulers and should oppose the present tyranny of capitalism. ..... Brewster's passionate conviction that religion and politics were inseparable—he argued that ‘The Bible is full of politics'—and his almost Marxist recognition of working-class alienation within a capitalist state make him an outstanding and unusual figure among the establishment clergy of mid-nineteenth-century Scotland. His breadth of vision and analysis contrasts starkly with the more traditional social remedies of most of his clerical contemporaries, who supported nothing more radical than Chalmers's ‘godly commonwealth'.'

Original blind grey-blue wrappers.l Separate issue, in large paper size, of this rare work of fundamental importance to the knowledge of the Protozoa, including Foraminifera, and unicellular algae. A smaller sized offprint with the plates folded also exists, but also very rare. The four plates show diatoms, foraminifers and other microscopic organisms from the Falkland Islands, Cayenne, Real del Monte, and New York, respectively. More species are reported from many additional localities (for instance: several Caribbean islands; several U.S. states, etc., etc.). Christian Gottfried Ehrenberg (1795-1876) was a German naturalist, explorer, zoologist, comparative anatomist, geologist, palaeontologist, and microscopist. He is perhaps best known for his works on microorganisms, writing extensively on "Infusionsthierchen" (Infusoria).

      London: William Smith,, 1843-44. 2 volumes, quarto (277 x 210 mm). Early 20th century green pebble-grain morocco by Riviere, richly gilt spines, sides with single-line gilt border, gilt ornamental corner-pieces, all edges gilt, richly gilt dentelles, marbled endpapers. 96 fine hand-coloured lithograph plates (with paper guards) by Day & Haghe after the Misses Loudon. Joints lightly rubbed, a touch of foxing to plates. A very good, clean set, handsomely bound. First and best edition. "Mrs. Loudon's attractive flower books, first published in the forties, were reissued ten or fifteen years later with plates that had become coarsened and joyless" (Wilfrid Blunt, The Art of Botanical Illustration, 1950, p. 236). Jane Loudon née Webb, (1807-1858), "was to Victorian gardening what Mrs Beeton was to cookery. Her beautifully illustrated books on gardening and plant identification sold in their thousands and women all over the country were enthused by them to take up gardening as a hobby" (V&A online). She met her husband, the landscape gardener and horticultural writer John Claudius Loudon, when her extraordinary early novel The Mummy! A Tale of the Twenty-Second Century (1827) - a pioneering science fiction work which set futuristic technology, including a steam plough, among the trappings of Egyptomania - was reviewed favourably by Loudon in The Gardener's Magazine. The Scot decided to "seek out the acquaintance of the writer, whom he believed to be male" (ODNB) - and they were married seven months later.

      [London]: "Reprinted for Thomas Rodd" ca. 1843. 8vo. Gatherings stiched; red morocco slipcase. According to Wise: "In 1843, when advertising the present pamphlet for sale, Rodd asserted that it was a facsimile reprint of an alleged original edition of which the author had printed twenty copies in 1816. No example of this mysterious original has ever been unearthed; no trace of it beyond Rodd's own statement has ever been discovered; and no mention of any kind either of its printing or distribution is to be found in the correspondence of Shelley or any of his friends. My own opinion is that no original ever existed, that the private impression of twenty copies was a myth, and that Rodd's so-called facsimile reprint of 1843 is in fact the actual princeps of the Address" (Ashley V, p.64).

      New York: F. Quarré, 1843. 12 issues, with 35 color plates. Large octavo. Contemporary full red sheep, boards gilt rules, spine gilt. Front hinged cracked, boards rubbed, edge and spine wear. Binder's ticket on front pastedown, slightly later pencil ownership inscription on front free endpaper. Edges dampstained, light tanning and scattered foxing. About very good. A complete run of an early and little known American periodical illustrated with color plates. Overlooked by both Bennett and McGrath, THE ARTIST... is an important work in the history of American color printing and in the development of color printing techniques. The publisher, an artist named F. Quarré, states in the introduction that the plates for the new periodical would be accomplished by "a process hitherto unknown." Quarré further states that the plates are "engravings in color...the invention and the means of execution are our own exclusive property...we shall have been the first to trace out a new line which has not as yet been attempted in any other country...." The plates appear to be aquatints, with different portions of the plate inked in different colors, and some of them closely resemble the color-printed plates of Jacob Bigelow's AMERICAN MEDICAL BOTANY of 1817-21. Quarré is not completely unknown - he is listed in Groce and Wallace, as well as in Jay Last's THE COLOR EXPLOSION. THE ARTIST was printed at the Herald Printing Establishment, at the corner of Nassau and Fulton Streets in New York, and was produced in only a small number of copies. In most, including the present one, in addition to purely color printed plates there are plates that are partly color printed and partly handcolored, plates that are entirely and conventionally hand colored, and plates that are embossed (of which one is hand colored). Finally there are several plates with simulated lace borders. "Quarré's most distinctive productions were flower aquatints embellished with engraved white lace, in the manner of the later valentine" - Groce & Wallace. "These plates exemplify the experimentation with color printing techniques in book illustration which paralleled the beginnings of chromolithography in the 1840s" - Reese. A rare and important periodical, never encountered as a complete run. REESE, STAMPED WITH A NATIONAL CHARACTER 48.

James's "The Commissioner" were used in "Samuel Sowerby"; the author is unknown and the text was written to match the illustrations. The British Library records "The Rambles of Captain Bolio. By Della" published in 1838; and assigns a provisional date of 1845 to the present title. Phiz in his prime was prolific and without equal. As G. K. Chesterton observed, "no other illustrator ever created the true Dickens characters with the precise and correct quantum of exaggeration. No other illustrator ever breathed the true Dickens atmosphere, in which clerks are clerks and yet at the same time elves" (cited in ODNB). In the present work, plates such as "The Insane Poet" and the final plate, "In at the Death", depicting a foxhunting accident, are as fine as anything he produced for Dickens.

All the towns or villages mentioned in this three early tourist guides are located in the Peak District of Derbyshire. The first item, which appears to be unrecorded, was lithographed by Charles Joseph Hullmandel (1789 - 1850), who was certainly one of the most important figures in the development of lithography in Britain. He set up shop in 1818 and in 1824 published his seminal text, The Art of Drawing on Stone. I couldn't find a copy of The New Panorama of Matlock, Buxton, and Castleton, but the printers were active in 1843. I located copies of Modern Chatsworth at the BL and at Yale. The last item, A Short Description of Castleton, in Derbyshire is a bit more common. It seems to have been printed as early as 1800, and a twenty-sixth edition was published in 1839.

Very good. - Over 80 words penned on 10 inch high by 7-5/8 inch wide "Congress Southworth Co." paper with the paper company's pictorial device embossed in blind at the top left corner. In his letter addressed to Henry R. Remsen, the founder of the Utica Savings Bank Nicholas Devereux writes that he is enclosing a bank draft and warmly closes by wishing him "many happy wishes for the present Season." Signed "N. Devereux". Folded for mailing, the letter is addressed and annotated on the verso of an attached leaf with its "Express Mail" postmark of the period and the remnants of a red wax seal. There are minor creases to the letter and a small piece is out from the edge of the attached leaf, no doubt the result of breaking the seal. The Irish-born American entrepreneur Nicholas Devereux (1791- 1855) left Ireland at the age of 15 after his family, who had been involved in the Irish Rebellion of 1798, lost their lands. Devereux emigrated to Utica, New York in 1806 where he was first employed by his brother John C. Devereux. After taking other employment for several years, he entered into partnership with his brother in 1814. It was in that year that the brothers moved their business into a brick building into which they installed a heavy strong box. Residents of Utica, fearing crime from the influx of soldiers and contractors moving through the City following the War of 1812, trusted the brothers to store their money in the strong box and some even trusted them enough to invest it for them. Thus were the seeds sown for what was to become the Savings Bank of Utica which the brothers opened without a charter in 1816, two years before the first official savings bank "The Philadelphia Savings Fund Society" opened. Through the years, the brothers acquired land in the vicinity of Utica. The brothers were instrumental in establishing the Sisters of Charity in Utica and founded the Christian Brothers school in the city. Nicholas Devereux briefly spent time in Albany where he took part in organizing the Utica & Schenectady Railroad. Devereux subsequently bought the substantial residue of the Holland Land Company's holdings in Allegany & Cattaraugus counties hoping to build a new city. Founding the town of Allegany on these lands he believed that, as it grew into a city, the citizens would need religious instruction. Devereux approached Buffalo's Bishop Timon who, reaching out to Rome, invited the first group of Franciscan brothers to settle in the United States. With funding from Devereux and instruction from the brothers, St. Bonaventure University was born and Devereux Hall was named after its founder. It was while teaching English at Bonaventure, at the start of the Second World War, those many years later, that the great religious writer and Catholic mystic Thomas Merton found his calling and decided to join the Trappist order.
