        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'.'

        Verbreitung und Einfluss des mikroskopischen Lebens in Sud- und Nord-Amerika. Ein Vortrag. Gelesen in der Königl. Preuss. Akademie der Wissenschaften zu Berlin am 25 März und 10 Juni 1841 mit spätern Zusätzen. Nebst 4 colorirten Kupfertafeln.

      - Berlin, Königliche Preussische Akademie der Wissenschaften zu Berlin, 1843. Tall folio (41.1 x 27.5 cm). Title page, dedication page, 158 pp., four partly hand-coloured engraved plates. 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). Wrappers a little frayed on edges, and spine cover perished; title page foxed but otherwise internally a very good, clean copy. Cat. BM(NH) 2, p. 515; Sabin, 22070. Not in Nissen ZBI.

Er gab zwischen 1816 bis 1848 die Zeitschrift "Isis" heraus, die Anlass zahlreicher Kontroversen werden sollte, da Oken in ihr neben wissenschaftlichen Beiträgen auch seine politische Gesinnung offenlegte. Wegen öffentlichen Meinungsäusserungen gegen die reaktionären Weimarer Kräfte auf dem Wartburgfest 1817 wurde er inhaftiert und aus dem Lehramt entlassen. Nach kurzem Baseler Engagement lebte er als Privatmann in München. 1822 gründete er die heute noch aktuelle Gesellschaft Deutscher Naturforscher und Aerzte. Wegen weiteren Disputen musste er die seit 1827 angenommene Professur für Physiologie in München abermals aufgeben. Die Stelle als ordentlicher Professor der Naturgeschichte, Naturphilosophie und Physiologie an der neugegründeten Universität in Zürich, die ihm 1833 angetragen wurde, bekleidete er bis zu seinem Tod.

        The Ladies' Flower-Garden of Ornamental Perennials

      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.

        "We Pity the Plumage, But Forget the Dying Bird." An Address to the People on the Death of the Princess Charlotte.

      [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).

        THE ARTIST. A MONTHLY LADIES' BOOK. VOL I[-II]

      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.

        Carta generale della Sicilia divisa in Provincie Distretti e Circondati

      Napoli 1843 - Carta geografica della Sicilia tratta da "Atlante Corografico del Regno delle Due Sicilie" edito a Napoli in tre ristampe dal 1840 al 1856. L’Atlante Corografico, come consuetudine all’epoca, uscì a dispense. Venne anche stampato un Manifesto di Associazione, probabilmente nel 1843) allo scopo di raccogliere sottoscrizioni per l’opera, nel quale era descritto il contenuto dell’opera, le carte già realizzate e il relativo costo. Nel prospetto erano previste anche due tavole con la "Posizione astronomica, topografica e geodesia, popolazione e divisione amministrativa " che non furono mai realizzate. Il materiale che utilizzò per la compilazione, era costituito dai due atlanti, anteriori solo di un decennio, realizzati dal Marzolla e da De Salvatori. Di fatto, De Sanctis non era né geografo né topografo, e il suo atlante è anzitutto un’opera di compilazione. Le tavole, prive di reticolo geografico, sono veri e proprio esercizi di grafica e calligrafica, che fanno dell’opera uno dei più raffinati atlanti del secolo. Inoltre, riflettono il suo interesse per i dati statistici. Ogni tavola è adornata con lo stemma della provincia rappresentata. Incisione in rame, coloritura coeva dei contorni, in ottime condizioni. Map taken from "Atlante Corografico del Regno delle Due Sicilie" published in Naples, three editions from 1840 to 1856. The Atlante Corografico, as usual at the time, came out in a single parts. It was also printed a poster of Association, (probably in 1843) in order to collect subscriptions for the work, in which he had described the content of the work, the cards have already been completed and the relevant cost. Copper engraving, contemporary coloring of the edges, in good condition. La Gumina (2015), n. 279; La collezione Spagnolo Patermo, p. 663, 347. Dimensioni 620 475mm

        Samuel Sowerby; or, Doings at Ravensdale Priory. By the author of "Captain Bolio," "Fred Hamilton," &c

      London: Willoughby & Co., Warwick Lane and Smithfield, 1843. First edition. 20 steel engravings by "Phiz". 316, [8, ads] pp. 1 vols. 8vo. Original brown blind stamped cloth. Fine in slipcase and cloth chemise. First edition. 20 steel engravings by "Phiz". 316, [8, ads] pp. 1 vols. 8vo. Twenty of Hablot K. Browne's etchings for G. P. R. 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. Copac lists at least thirty-three separate editions. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Report Intended to Illustrate a Map of the Hydrographical Basin of the Upper Mississippi River.

      Washington : Blair & Rives 1843 - Senate issue, 1 of 300. Bound in modern green cloth. Gilt titling on spine. Foxing throughout. Light crease in center of text. Contains": "Hydrographical Basin of the Upper Mississippi River From Astronomical and Barometrical Observations Surveys and Information." Large fold out map, 92 x 76 cm. Map in good shape, but with a few small puncture marks. Scale 1:1,200,000. This map was the first detailed modern depiction of the Great Lakes region and the primary source for the area at that time. Goetzmann states that Nicollet's "Map of the Hydrographic Basin of the Upper Mississippi River" was "based on some 90,000 instrument readings and 326 distinctly determined astronomical points. With its overall regional concept of a 'hydrographic basin,' Nicollet's map and the accompanying report were years ahead of their time. Had he lived one more decade, Nicollet would undoubtedly have become the official government cartographer of the whole trans-Mississippi West". Significantly, text contains the first description of early St. Louis. Explorers Club blind stamp on title. Provenance: Explorers Club (NYC) book plate. Signed on book plate by James B. Ford. Ford was the President of the Club, the Club's library is named after him.

        AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED by the IRISH-AMERICAN ENTREPRENEUR NICHOLAS DEVEREUX regarding a bank draft.

      Utica, December 30th, 1843. - Utica, December 30th, 1843. 1843. 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.

Mitbegründer, technischer Leiter und Verbindungsmann zu den Holzschnittkünstlern in Leipzig und Berlin war von 1843 bis 1845 der Leipziger Buchhändler und Verleger Carl Berendt Lorck. Die Zeitschrift war das Flaggschiff des Unternehmens und kann zugleich als Urmutter aller späteren Bilderblätter angesehen werden. Zudem war diese neue Art Zeitschrift in Bezug auf die für solch kostspielige Experimente eher ungünstige Zeit ein wagemutiger, aber erfolgreicher Versuch, der sich in hervorragenden Verkaufserfolg entwickelte. Die Technik der Holzstich-Illustrationen für damalige Verhältnisse zur Perfektion zu entwickeln, war für den Verleger J. J. Weber im Jahr 1843 der eigentliche Anreiz zur Gründung einer illustrierten Zeitschrift. Im Laufe der folgenden Jahre gliederte er ein xylographisches Atelier an, das 1849 bis 1857 von Robert Kretschmer, 1857 bis 1860 von dem Maler Ernst Hartmann aus Berlin, 1860 bis 1870 von dem Maler Anton Muttenthaler aus München und 1870 bis 1901 von Fritz Waibler geleitet wurde. Ihr enormer Einsatz an Bildern und Bildreportagen, die durch den Einsatz eigener Bildkorrespondenten möglich wurde, macht die Illustrirte Zeitung durch ihre lange Laufzeit von einem Jahrhundert zu einer wichtigen Quelle an Materialien zur Geschichte und Kultur, sowie der Politik und des Alltagslebens. Sie bietet damit ein einmaliges Bildarchiv mit über 300.000 Illustrationen, die eindrucksvoll Berichte über das zeitgenössische politische, wissenschaftliche, kulturelle und literarische Leben dieser Zeit liefern. Mit der in der Illustrirten Zeitung erstmals eingeführten Eingliederung des Bildes in die Textseite erhöhte sich die Aussagekraft der bisher nur sprachlich vermittelten Inhalte oder Informationen." / "Johann Jacob Weber (* 3. April 1803 in Basel 16. März 1880 in Leipzig) war ein deutscher Buchhändler und Verleger sowie Begründer des Verlagshauses J. J. Weber in Leipzig. 1843 gründete er gemeinsam mit Carl Berendt Lorck die Illustrirte Zeitung, das erste illustrierte Wochenblatt Deutschlands, und revolutionierte damit die Wahrnehmung der Welt. Noch heute prägen die Bildfolgen zunächst der Stahlstiche und später der Holzstiche in seiner llustrirten Zeitung unsere Vorstellungen von der guten alten Zeit.

        Piazza Contarena di Udine

      Udine 1843 - Due rarissime vedute litografiche, prese da angolazioni diverse, di Piazza della Libertà, a Udine, realizzate da Luigi Bertelli. Le due litografie probabilmente erano parte del rarissimo Album pittorico del Friuli, composto da vedute di città, paesi e castelli del territorio friulano del primo Ottocento, e stampate a partire dal 1841 con l&#146;innovativa tecnica litografica su pietra bavarese. L'iniziativa è opera di Ottavio Codecasa (che dell'Album sarà anche editore) e Marco Moro. Le prime vedute dell&#146;Album pittorico del Friuli furono stampate a Udine, presso la litografia Luigi Berletti, a partire dal 1841. Ogni scenario è popolato da personaggi ritratti nella loro vita cittadina o agreste, immersi in una serena atmosfera frutto dell&#146;interpretazione romantica del paesaggio. La piazza nel Cinquecento e fino al 1945, era detta Piazza Contarena. La prima veduta, su disegno di Giuseppe Filippi, è datata 1842 e reca nel margine inferiore la dedica di Luigi Berletti al conte Lodovico Rota, socio dell'Accademia di Udine. La prospettiva guarda allo splendido Porticato di S. Giovanni, che si appoggia alla Torre dell'Orologio. Sulla destra del porticato, si nota la grande statua di Ercole. Sulla sinistra, la veduta include alcune arcate della Loggia del Lionello. La seconda litografia, su disegno di G.B. Cecchini, è datata 1843, ed è dedicata da Berletti al conte Antonio Beretta. La veduta prospettica è dal lato Nord della piazza, alle spalle della statua della Pace, opera dello scultore Giovan Battista Comolli, su progetto di Valentino Presani. Il basamento con panoplia è opera di Michele Zuliani (o Giuliani). La prospettiva include alcuni dei monumenti più belli della piazza: sulllo sfondo della piazza, si osserva la fontana rinascimentale; la staua di Ercole davanti al Porticato; quella di Caco, della quale si intravede solo la parte superiore alla destra del basamento della statua della Pace. Litografie su pietra bavarese, ampli margini bianchi, rare fioriture, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Splendidi esemplari di due vedute rarissime.

        A System of Logic, Ratiocinative and Inductive.

      John W. Parker, West Strand, London 1843 - Volume 1: 2 leaves (4 pp.) with advertisements for "Works by William Howitt" + 1 blank leaf + TP + [iii]-vii = Preface + [ix]-xvi = Contents + [1]-580; Volume 2: 2 leaves (4 pp.) with advertisements for "Works by William Howitt" + 1 blank leaf + TP + [iii]-xii = Contents + half-title (with Herschel quote on verso) + [3]-624, Octavo. First Edition (MacMinn, p. 56).This is the first edition of Mill's brilliant first book wherein he makes the "first major installment of his comprehensive restatement of an empiricist and utilitarian position." (EP, Vol. 5, p. 315) The book "had a rapid success, beyond the expectations of its author, and was for many years the standard authority with all who took his side in the main philosophical questions. Mill, in fact, was recognized as the great leader of the empirical school. few men have had a more marked influence upon the rising intellect of the time." (DNB) It is nearly impossible to accurately and comprehensively summarize the book's salient and important points in so small a space. The Encyclopedia of Philosophy gives two and a half full pages of exposition to the work and then devotes another nine pages to an article entitled: "Mill's Methods of Induction". In short, despite over two thousand years of philosophical consideration of logic based on deduction, Mill abandons that approach and provides an analysis and proof for logic based on the principles of induction working solely from the human experiences of sensation. An incredible tour de force by one of the leading intellects of English philosophy. 1843" inscribed on the inside front cover of both volumes. Internally, very crisp, bright and untrimmed. One small bit of contemporary ink marginalia in the Contents of Volume1. A lovely copy of a set very difficult to find in any condition. Extremely rare in this state.

        Autograph Letter Signed, Honolulu, Oahu, S. I. August 7, 1843 to Messrs. Foster & Hunt

      - quarto, 3 pages, inscribed on a four page bi-folium, formerly folded, remains of sealing wax on integral address leaf, else in very good, clean legible condition. An important letter written soon after Damon's arrival in Hawaii in which he discusses Lord Paulet's cession of Hawaii in February of 1843 and the cessions recission, by Admiral Richard Thomas on July 26, 1843, missionary activities and two newspapers, "The Advocate & Friend," and the "Nonanona." Damon also announces the birth of his son Samuel Mills Damon. Damon writes: "Dear Friends, The Whaleship Sabina will sail to day direct for New York. A young man on board Chas. Paine, South Hampton L. I. informs me that he has a brother in your store. ¿ Since our arrival we have lived through two revolutions. I must refer you to the public prints for the particulars in regard to the extraordinary movements of Lord Paulet and the Restoration of the Flag under Rear Admiral Thomas. Living as we do in Honolulu & being on pretty good terms with some of the government officers, we generally learn what is going forward behind the curtain, before it is noised abroad to the world. I can assure the political excitement has been very great in our little community. I forward you part of a file of the Polynesian a paper that was published here, some months since, but has been stopped you may be able to learn something of the commercial importance of the place from its columns. Since commencing my labors here I have also started a small monthly sheet I forward a file of the "Advocate & Friend." It succeeds beyond my most sanguine expectations. The "Nonanona" is a small semi-monthly paper, in the native language & edited by Rev. Mr. Armstrong one of the Missionaries. You may perhaps desire to learn my opinion about missionary affairs now that I am permitted to see for myself. I will simply remark my confidence in the cause increases every day. God, through their instrumentality has performed a great work among this people, and if my lot should ever again be cast among the people in the U. S. I should labor with ten-fold energy to advance the missionary work. It is the great work of the Age, aye - the great work of God - and at home and abroad God cheerfully opens a field for laborers to work for Him & be assured at the great day all who have labored for him will be richly rewarded¿ We are now rejoicing over a little son born on the 9th of last month so that he is now just four weeks old. We call him Samuel Mill Damon¿" Born February 15, 1815 in Holden, Mass., Samuel Damon graduated from Amherst College in 1836 and in 1837 was the principal of Academy, Salisbury, Conn. He began his theological training at Princeton Theological Seminary in 1838 and finished his theological training at Andover Theological Seminary in 1841. He was ordained September 15, 1841 and married Julia Sherman Mills October 6, 1841 in Natick, Mass. In 1867 he received an honorary doctorate of divinity from Amherst College. Samuel Damon was sent by the American Seamen's Friend Society to be chaplain in Honolulu. The Damons sailed from New York March 10, 1842 aboard the Victoria Captain Spring and arrived in Honolulu October 19, 1842. He was the pastor of the Bethel Union Church, Seamen's Chapel for 42 years and was the publisher of the periodical The Friend from 1843 - 1884. In 1849 Samuel Damon visited Oregon and California; in 1851, the United States; in 1861, Micronesia, as a delegate of the Hawaiian Board; 1869 - 1870 the United States, Europe, Palestine and Egypt; in 1876 the United States; in 1880 England and the Continent; and in 1884 China and Japan. While in the Hawaiian Islands "he served Sailors' Home, Stranger's Friend Society, Oahu College (Punahou School) Board, the Queen's Hospital and Hawaiian Board of Missions". Rev. Samuel Chenery Damon died February 7, 1885 in Honolulu.
