        Primary Source Manuscript of John Holt of Garthorpe - Pioneering Trader and Shipowner

      A rare primary source manuscript yielding very specific details about the Holt family's trade activities prior to expanding to Africa. North Lincolnshire, England, Belgium, 14 December 1843 to 17 June 1856. Original manuscript shipping ledger journal kept by merchant and sloop shipmaster John Holt of Garthorpe, conceivably being the uncle (born 1822) and namesake of the famous John Holt (1841-1917) who subsequently founded the pioneering Liverpool-West Africa shipping company still operating today as John Holt plc. Features at least six John Holt signature incsriptions. 8vo. 194 pages in manuscript. Original vellum binding with working brass clasp and orange marbled endpapers. While much is known about renowned merchant and shipping magnate John Holt (1841-1917) and his brothers with whom he partnered in the West Africa trade, very little detail is readily available on the shipping activities of his predecessors and mentors. [Of the freight transport and trade activities prior to the founding of John Holt & Co. (Liverpool) Ltd in 1884, the only known archive of Holt family papers is held by the National Archives, which spans from 1703 to 1965.] The present volume comprises a firsthand record of the commercial shipping activities in and outside of England made by a John Holt of Garthorpe six years before the famous John Holt of Garthorpe's voyage to Fernando Po, and thirty years prior to the founding of John Holt and Company which established trading posts and banking in West Africa. The writer may quite rightly be the uncle and namesake of the great businessman and company founder. As he plied the English coast and continent, then explored foreign trade, John Holt of Garthorpe, keeper of the present journal, dutifully penned a ledger of expenses and accounts. The volume beginning in 1843 and pertaining largely to freight transport on the rivers of North Lincolnshire. His entries, however, further reveal the start of coastal trade from the northeast to the south coast of England, and, in the latter years, we notice substantial increase in the number of port towns visited for trade. His pioneering voyages to continental Europe in 1853 show the Holt family's subsequent beginnings in foreign trade, and foretell the imminent success which would build favourable and profitable Anglo-African trade relations for centuries to follow. Tirelessly ferrying all kinds of cargo throughout North Lincolnshire and centering around the Isle of Axholme for several years, he frequently transported gravel, cobble and binding agents, which is consistent with the ongoing construction of navigable canals, as well as railways, in this period. The Barton-on-Humber railway station, for example, was opened as part of the branch line from New Holland to Barton-on-Humber in 1849. Ale was also frequently transported. Deliveries of cargo were made to the following locations in North Lincolnshire: the ancient Parish called Belton (near Epworth), Crowle, Luddington (now Luddington and Haldenby), West Butterwick, Spalding on the River Welland in the South Holland district, Gunhouse [Gunness], Burringham on the east bank of the river Trent, Grimsby, Boothferry and Goole, and the Parish of Althorpe - one of the eight original parishes in the Isle of Axholme (now Keadby with Althorpe). Hull, in the East Riding of Yorkshire, is a principle port, and from here he frequently ships potatoes and other goods as far as London. Barton is also mentioned [Barton-upon-Humbler across the river from Hull]. Some clients are named. On 19 August 1848 he delivered 70 tons of 'cliff' for Baronet Sir Robert Sheffield, whom in 1842 had purchased the old Healey estate in Frodingham, together with a Charles Winn. [This was either Sir Robert Sheffield, 4th Baronet (1796-1862), Major of the North Lincolnshire Yeomanry, Justice of the Peace, High Sherriff of Lincolnshire, and politician, or possibly his eldest son Sir Robert Sheffield, 5th Baronet (1823-1886) who also served as High Sherriff of Lincolnshire.] In the 1850's Holt's inland business was expanding greatly, with new clients at Gainsborough, Dunkirk, Ispwich, Wisbech, Rochester, Newcastle, and Lowestoft. Large quantities of tiles were sent to London during this period, 36,000 tiles, 45,000 tiles, as well as fire clay and fire bricks. On 10 February 1855 the usual cargo of potatoes was brought to London, and this time two bells as well. Reflecting the prosperity refinement of the Victorian era, at Hull he delivered marble, mahogany, iron and barrels of resin. In 1851, a notable change occurred when Holt took his business to the sea coast. His first coastal voyage was for a substantial delivery being made on 12 July, consisting of stone, machinery, several carts and wagons, paint, and oil, quite possibly for the expansion of the Southampton West End railway station which was constructed in 1847, and its terminus at Blechynden Terrace which came into use in 1850. [Developments continued until 1860, by which time the station was equipped with a booking office and two waiting rooms on the up and down platforms. The Southampton and Dorchester Railway Company, having amalgamated with the large London and South Western Railway (LSWR) in 1848, was expanding and improving its lines at this time.] Fees incurred on this voyage included dues payable at Dover and Ramsgate, boomage and quay dues, over and above the regular expenses. In 1853, Holt was making voyages along the northern sea coast of England, with a delivery of timber to the famous shipbuilding town of Whitby, where Captain Cook learned seamanship. In the same year he shipped 108 tons of coal to Harwich, 86 tons of shingles to Hull. Sunderland also became a relatively frequent port. Finally, crossing the North Sea in 1853 for the first time with commercial cargo, the sloop called "Gutteridge" transported 104 tons of guano to Antwerp in Belgium; a cargo of machinery is subsequently brought to Brussels; these being the first steps in foreign shipping for John Holt of Garthorpe. Fees and expenses tallied throughout the volume include wharfage, bridge dues, tariffs paid to the Lord Mayor of London, separate canal dues in London, Humber dues, pilotage. In April 1846 he pays dues paid on 15 horses and some ale, evidently trying his hand at transporting live animals. In Hull, January 1847, a delivery of cement stone and hoops requires payment of dock dues, buoyage, corporation fee, entrance fee, and house commissions. Dues are occasionally paid at Spurn [The lifeboat station at Spurn Head was built in 1810, on the north bank of the mouth of the Humber estuary. Owing to the remote location, houses for the lifeboat crew and their families were added a few years later]. In addition, he pays a boatswain, a waterman, and other hired labour from time to time. During this thirteen years of trade, Holt had at least 3 sloops, "Friends" from 1843-1849, "Acorn" from 1849-1851, and "Gutteridge" from 1851-1856. These were all made by shipbuilder John Wray (1796-1884) of Burton Stather. By 1851 he employed sixteen men. An interesting connection may be realized through this volume. The keeper of this ledger, John Holt, inscribes a note to remember his wedding to 'Sarah' on 16 October 1845. The 1851 census states that John Wray had a niece named Sarah. Making the connection between merchant and sloop shipmaster John Holt of Garthorpe who wrote the present ledger, and the famous John Holt of Garthorpe (1841-1917) who subsequently founded the Liverpool-West Africa shipping company: From the Holt family of Garthorpe there were many in the shipping trade, from shipwrights and sailmasters, to shipowners, and leading merchants, the most famous of them being the brothers who established a shipping trade in West Africa. With ancestral origins in Broughton Grange, they established firms in Liverpool, including John Holt & Co Ltd, West Africa Traders & Shipowners. Needing no introduction, John Holt (1841-1915) was an English merchant who founded the most significant shipping line which operated between Liverpool and West Africa, and a number of businesses in Nigeria, which are now incorporated in John Holt plc. Born on the 31 October 1841 in Garthorpe, Lincolnshire, he first worked for his grandfather, learning the sea trade at an exceptionally young age. Subsequently, at the age of fifteen, he became the apprentice of William Laird, a Liverpool coal dealer. Just prior to completing his apprenticeship, in 1862 he went to Fernando Po to take up an appointment as secretary to James Lynslager, formerly acting British Consul who was pursuing his personal commercial interests. [Sir Richard Burton had just entered the Foreign Service as consul of the island.] There he managed Lynslager's trading post. Five years later, he bought out his employer, and he was joined by his brother Jonathan. In 1868 Johnathan bought a schooner, which enabled the brothers to open more trading posts in West Africa. In 1874 the brothers opened an office in Liverpool. In 1881, John entered the palm oil trade. In 1884 the brothers formed a partnership, John Holt and Company. Falling in line with family tradition, his father, Thomas Godfrey Holt (born 1817 Luddington, Lincolnshire - died 1909 Appleby, Lincolnshire), was a shipowner and merchant as well. It was he, who arranged for his son, the famous John Holt of Garthope, to apprenticeship under Laird for five years. The original indenture document between William Laird and Thomas Godfrey Holt is held in the Liverpool Maritime Museum Archives. [The 1856 gazetteer and directory of Lincolnshire lists both Thomas Holt (father) and John Holt (son) as master mariners at Garthorpe on the Isle of Axholme. Thomas is also described as a coal merchant, vessel owner and victualler, of "Sheffield Arms", Ferry, having purchased the "Sheffield Arms Inn" at Burton upon Stather.] Especially interesting in reference to the present volume, his paternal uncle and namesake was John Holt, born 1822 in Burton-upon-Stather, quite likely the author of the present volume, and surely another source of inspiration for setting out to Africa in the first place, to learn about foreign commerce. His grandfather, Thomas Holt (born 1788 All Saints, Flixborough - married Elizabeth Godfrey in Luddington church on 28 June 1814 - died 1863 Luddington), was a sea merchant of notable repute. He is listed in census as a sailor in 1815 and a ship master by 1817, at these times his surname was spelled Hoult. He is mentioned in the coastal trade archives, and found in several articles of the Hull Packet Newspaper. He received a master's certificate for having worked 43 years in coastal trade. The record states: "Thomas Holt, Born at Crosby, Lincolnshire, 12 September 1788, has been employed in the capacities of App & Master 43 years in the British Merchant Service in the Coasting Trade." He travelled as far as Constantinople and St. Petersburg. There is a burial recorded at Luddington on 20th February 1863, for a Thomas Holt, of Garthorpe, aged 74. Historical records confirm that Thomas & Elizabeth Holt had between them at least six children, 4 boys and 2 girls between 1815 & 1827, as follows: •William, born 1815 •Thomas Godfrey, born 1817 (father of famed business founder John Holt of Garthorpe) •Elizabeth, born 1820 in Luddington, baptised in Burton upon Stather on 17 September 1820 where the family resided •John, born on 20 July 1822, baptised in Burton upon Stather, the family living in "The Stather", close to the shore of the River Trent, his father Thomas being recorded as being a waterman •William Leonard, born 1825, baptised at Burton upon Stather, 7 February 1825, the family living in "The Stather", his father Thomas recorded as being a mariner •Mary Ann, born 1827, baptised at Luddington 27 December 1827, the family are once again in Garthorpe, and Thomas described as a master mariner. The family made frequent moves between Burton upon Stather, Luddington, and Garthorpe. The village of Garthorpe in North Lincolnshire, in the Isle of Axholme, is situated approximately 8 miles (13 km) south-east from Goole, and 1 mile (1.6 km) west from the River Trent, is the home of John Holt, writer of the present ledger, and also John Holt founder of the renowned West Africa shipping company. It is contiguous with the village of Fockerby. [Garthorpe of North Lincolnshire should not be confused with the village by the same name, and civil parish (called Garthorpe and Fockerby) in the Melton district of Leicestershire.] In 1833, "Bartholomew's Gazetteer of Britain" describes the Isle of Axholme as follows: "Area of slight elevation above flat and formerly marshy tract bounded by the Rivers Trent, Torne and Idle. Towns include Crowle, Belton, Epworth and Haxey on higher ground and Owston Ferry and West Butterwick beside the River Trent."

      Philadelphia: Daniel Rice & James G. Clark, 1843. Hand-coloured lithograph. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling and slight offsetting with image. A fine image from McKenney and Hall's 'Indian Tribes of North America': `One of the most important [works] ever published on the American Indians' (Field),` a landmark in American culture' (Horan) and an invaluable contemporary record of a vanished way of life. A sensible Creek chief and a courageous warrior, Apauly-Tustennugge (Tustenugge means "Warrior" or "Chieftan") was a member of the Creek delegation that went to Washington in 1826 to dispute the validity of the 1825 Indian Springs Treaty and sign the Treaty of Washington, in which the Creeks were permitted to retain a small portion of their land on the Alabama-Georgia border. However, the white settlers in Alabama soon began to agitate for their removal, which followed soon thereafter. The Creek (Muskoke), was one of the principal tribes in mid-south and later one of the Five Civilized Tribes, inhabited the Southeastern region of the United States until they were removed to Arkansas and Oklahoma. McKenney and Hall's 'Indian Tribes of North America' has long been renowned for its faithful portraits of Native Americans. The portraits are largely based on paintings by the artist Charles Bird King, who was employed by the War Department to paint the Indian delegates visiting Washington D.C., forming the basis of the War Department's Indian Gallery. Most of King's original paintings were subsequently destroyed in a fire at the Smithsonian, and their appearance in McKenney and Hall's magnificent work is thus our only record of the likenesses of many of the most prominent Indian leaders of the nineteenth century. Numbered among King's sitters were Sequoyah, Red Jacket, Major Ridge, Keokuk, and Black Hawk. After six years as Superintendent of Indian Trade, Thomas McKenney had become concerned for the survival of the Western tribes. He had observed unscrupulous individuals taking advantage of the Native Americans for profit, and his vocal warnings about their future prompted his appointment by President Monroe to the Office of Indian Affairs. As first director, McKenney was to improve the administration of Indian programs in various government offices. His first trip was during the summer of 1826 to the Lake Superior area for a treaty with the Chippewa, opening mineral rights on their land. In 1827, he journeyed west again for a treaty with the Chippewa, Menominee , and Winebago in the present state of Michigan. His journeys provided an unparalleled opportunity to become acquainted with Native American tribes. When President Jackson dismissed him from his government post in 1830, McKenney was able to turn more of his attention to his publishing project. Within a few years, he was joined by James Hall, a lawyer who had written extensively about the west. McKenney and Hall saw their work as a way of preserving an accurate visual record of a rapidly disappearing culture. (Gilreath). Cf. BAL 6934; cf. Bennett p.79; cf. Field 992; cf. Howes M129; cf.

        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.

      Munroe and Francis, 1843. An early printing in green morocco with gilt rule to the perimeter of the boards, rebacked with most of the morocco spine laid down, though part of the titling is lost. As Bleiler notes in his bibliography in the Dover edition of Mother Goose's Melodies [Dover Publications, 1970] "the various Munroe and Francis Mother Goose books have been unexpectedly complicated in their printing history ... each new copy examined adds further confusion" [p. 99]. A study of the complex bibliography places this copy in the Second Family of Munroe & Francis printings. ~~Bleiler notes that the chain of editions can be traced through type as well as in textual changes, and that in the "Dover Edition", the dot is missing "on the second 'sing' in 'Sing, Sing' " on page 11, indicating that the type is worn. This copy has the dot present, indicating perhaps that it is an earlier printing. The illustrations in this copy are mostly signed correctly.~~Several leaves were torn and have been repaired professionally. ~~An early example of the American Mother Goose, and a charming one. The provocative claim on the title page that the rhymes were found "in the same stone box as the Golden Plates of the Book of Mormon", and the uncommon verses "See Saw Margery Daw/ Sold her bed and lay upon straw, / Was she not a dirty slut, / To sell her bed and lay in the dirt?", along with other odd usages and delightful woodcuts, make this edition a delight.~.

A., respectfully presented by his obedient humble servants, W. Winsor & H. Newton." The recipient was Clarkson Stanfield, elected as a Royal Academician in February 1835, who "between 1820 and his last submission in 1867 showed 135 paintings at the Royal Academy, his only absences being from 1822 to 1826, in 1828, and (owing to a tour) in 1839" (ODNB). He played an active role in the Royal Academy, repeatedly serving on their council, and in 1852 became a member of the hanging committee. Originally a theatre painter, Stanfield was described by Ruskin as, "the leader of the British Realists, and, next to Turner, the noblest master of cloud forms of all our artists" (ODNB). Winsor and Newton were the first developers of the commonly used glycerine based water colours, and have been important producers of art materials since they were established in 1832. An uncommon work, traced in seven institutions world-wide. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

      Plakat mit typograph. Text und 5 Holzschnitten. Blattgr.: 58 x 42 cm. Sehr berühmt oder erfolgreich mögen die Geschwister Bäse nicht gewesen sein, zumindest konnte ich keine weiteren Auftritte nachweisen. Als Nachfolgerinnen der berühmten französischen Wahrsagerin Marie Anne Lenormand (gest. 1843) bezeichneten sich zahlreiche Gauklerinnen auf europäischen Jahrmärkten. - Neben diesem Auftritt gab es u. a. noch: Ikarische Sylphiden-Gespiele der vier Brüder Bäse, Japanische Spiele und "La Trapez volonta" mit Rudolph Düsterhoff und "Dispensations adriennes" mit Frl. Linna Bäse. - Die hübschen Holzschnitte zeigen u. a. die Wahrsagerin mit verbunden Augen und einen feinen Herrn, dem wohl gerade die Zukunft vorhergesagt wird. Linke Ecken mit etwas Abschnitt, der obere linke Rand auf ca. 7 cm etwas beschnitten.

        Gedichte (Ausgabe 1843, mit dem Vorwort "Lebensumstände des Dichters" von Gustav und Christoph Schwab von 1842)

      Stuttgart und Tübingen 1843, Kl. 8, gewachstes Leinen, vorderer Einband und Buchrücken mit goldgeprägtem, reich ziseliertem Buchschmuck und umlaufendem goldem Buchschnitt. Mit einem Stahlstich-Frontispiz im Profil XX, 196 Seiten. Minimale Gebrauchsspuren am oberen und unteren Falz, Buchbindung innen fachmännisch restauriert, tadelloses Exemplar dieser seltenen frühen Gedicht-Monographie, erschienen in seinem Todesjahr 1843. Vorwort "Lebensumstände des Dichters" von Gustav und Christian Schwab, Stuttgart im Oktober 1842. Aus einem früheren großbürgerlichen Sammlerhaushalt. Sehr selten. Editorischer Hintergrund: Zu Hölderlins Lebzeiten (1770-1843) wurde nur ein Teil seines lyrischen Werkes veröffentlicht, erst in der zweiten Hälfte des 19. Jahrhunderts wurden einige bis dahin unbekannte Texte aus der Zeit nach 1800 herausgegeben zuvor waren vom Spätwerk fast nur die sogenannten Nachtgesänge bekannt. Die Gedichte selbst wurden zwar 1826 erstmals veröffentlicht, aber noch unter der Herausgeberschaft von Ludwig Uhland und Christoph Theodor Schwab. Das hier vorliegende kleine Buch der "Gedichte" ist deshalb editionshistorisch gesehen die erste "echte" Monographie, zu der die früheren Herausgeber dann nur das Vorwort schrieben. Eine erste Gesamtausgabe erschein dann drei Jahre später 1846 unter der Feder von C.T. Schwab, der im selben Jahr auch die erste Biographie Hölderlins veröffentlichte.

Mackenzie, M.D. Edinburgh 1837, joined the staff as assistant surgeon in 1839 the King's Dragoon Guards being his first posting.

      (IV), 420 (IV) 420 Seiten mit sehr zahlreichen teilsganzseitigen Holzstich-Illustrationen. 37,5 x 27,5 cm, zeitgenössischer schwarzer Leinenband mit blindgeprägtem Rückentitel. Jeder Band durch aphabetisches Inhaltsverzeichnis (Register) und aphabetisches Verzeichnis der Illustrationen erschlossen. "Die Illustrirte Zeitung erschien vom 1. Juli 1843 bis zum September 1944 im Verlag J. J. Weber in Leipzig. Verleger und Herausgeber war Johann Jacob Weber. 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.

For the feel of fishing, the sense of it, I almost said the taste of it, I know of no other to place beside him. Put me ashore on the desert island and along with The Compleat Angler IÂ’ll beg for only one other book and thatÂ’s Days and Nights of Salmon Fishing in the TweedÂ… The big point to bear in mind about Scrope is that while it seems so effervescent and sparkly, itÂ’s not all superficialÂ… Scrope did at least as much for salmon fishing as Cotton before him had done for trout” (Gingrich, The Fishing In Print, 117, 130).

        Narrative of Various Journeys in Balochistan, Afghanistan and the Panjab; [together with;] Narrative of a Journey to Kalat.

      London: Richard Bentley, 1842 & 1843 - Together 2 works in 4 volumes, octavo. Original matching purple combed cloth, title gilt to spines, panelling in blind to boards, pale cream surface-paper endpapers. All spines a little sunned, and crumpled head and tail with some minor splits and chips, overall a little rubbed, and bumped at the extremities, light browning to the text-blocks, and some foxing particularly to the plates; the pendant volume neatly rebacked with the original spine laid down, end papers renewed, folding map with two closed tears, no loss; a very good set. Single-tint lithographic frontispiece and one other similar plate to each volume of the first-named, together with numerous wood-cut illustrations to the text; large folding map to the pendant volume. First editions. Considered "to be the most enigmatic among the European explorers" of the north-west frontier, Masson (1800–53), was born John Lewis in London. In 1821 he enlisted as a private in the East India Company's infantry, later transferring to the Bengal European Artillery. He was present at the siege of Bharatpur in 1826 but deserted in early July 1827 in Agra and changed his name. He travelled to Afghanistan and embarked on over a decade of "pioneering travel and antiquarian investigation. During this period he collected well over 80,000 ancient coins and other objects which First provided a chronology of the dynasties of central Asia in the unknown centuries after the death of Alexander the Great. From 1834 Masson published news of his discoveries in the Journal of the Asiatic Society of Bengal. The following year he was recruited by the East India Company as news writer in Afghanistan, in return for a free pardon for his desertion and a small allowance" (ODNB). He also offered "the first hint of the historical importance of Harappa" (Robinson, The Indus, p. 28), one of the major sites of the ancient Indus Valley culture. In the years immediately before the first Afghan War, Masson was strongly critical of the Forward Policy, using his narrative to comment adversely on the conduct of Alexander Burnes and Sir William Macnaughten. He left Afghanistan in 1838 and during the ensuing British invasion remained in Sind, compiling the first work here. "In attempting to return to Afghanistan in 1840, he became accidentally embroiled in the Baluchistan revolt and was imprisoned by the British authorities without either charge or good reason" – events which he describes in the pendant volume. He returned to Britain in 1842, a typically embittered and disputatious ex-HEIC employee, failing "in his efforts to obtain financial compensation, to publish an illustrated magnum opus about his Afghan years, to return to Afghanistan, and to complete a half-finished novel". Although Masson lacked any formal training, "as an accurate observer of, and extensive traveller in, a virtually unknown land he was unrivalled", and the present narrative "has been judged to be a record which is unsurpassed for the width of its scope of inquiry into political, social, economic and scientific matters and the general accuracy of its conclusion" (Chopra). provenance: with the ownership initials of Lieut.-Col. John Archibald Ballard, dated 1857, to the front free endpaper of volume I. Ballard was educated at Addiscombe, and commissioned in the Bengal Engineers in 1850. He earned a considerable reputation for his "cool bravery in action" (Buckland) during his services attached to the Turkish forces in the Crimea, commanding a brigade in Omar Pasha's campaign in Mingrelia. "Ballard returned to India in 1856 [and] served as assistant quartermaster-general in the Persian campaign, and afterwards in the Indian mutiny with the Rajputana field force, taking part in the pursuit and rout of Tantia Topi's forces. His promotion was singularly rapid, advancing in 1858 from lieutenant to lieutenant-colonel. He was subsequently mint-master at Bombay. Having attained the rank of lieutenant-general, he retired in 1879" (ODNB). Chopra, Maha [Attributes: First Edition]

        Specimen juris inaugurale de conjugiis jure moslimico.

      Leiden, Samuel and Johannes Luchtmans and J.H. Gebhard, 1843. - 8vo. (6), 116, (2) pp. Contemporary green textured morocco with gold-tooled sides and fore-edge flap. Edges gilt. First and only edition of a Latin thesis on Islamic marriage law, by Emile Frederique Eliodore Testa (1821-96), the oral defense held at the University of Leiden. It treats the traditional rites of marriage and the conceptions of lawful and unlawful marriage, divorce, re-marriage and polygamy, also discussing marriage between two Muslims of whom one is enslaved, between enslaved Muslims, and between a Muslim and a foreigner. Born in Constantinople (Istanbul), Testa was of Italian extraction and served as Dutch consul in Tunis and Tripoli. He composed his thesis at the University of Leiden under the supervision of the historian Johannes Matthias Schrant (1783-1866). Possibly the present copy was owned by him or even by the author, as it is carefully bound, with fore-edge flap, in oriental style. - Binding slightly rubbed along the extremities and spine a bit discoloured. Slightly browned and foxed, otherwise in very good condition. F. Pouillon, Après l'orientalisme (2011), p. 80f. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      Paris, 1787-1843. - 4to. 14 volumes, some in 2 parts. With woodcuts on title-pages; occasional illustrations, including folding plates (at least 1 hand-coloured), to show facsimiles of manuscripts, maps, miniatures, etc.; some texts (for example Manchu in vol. 13) printed in red and black. Set in roman and italic type, with extensive use of the printing office's extensive collection of non-Latin types (Greek, Hebrew, Arabic, Samaritan, Syriac, Armenian, Sanscrit, Mongolian, Manchu (a variant of the Mongolian), Tibetan, Chinese and perhaps more). Uniform tree sheepskin (ca. 1835-ca. 1845), richly gold-tooled spines. First editions of the first 14 volumes of the officially authorized publications of the manuscripts of the French Bibliothèque du Roi and it successors, with commentaries and notes by leading French authorities, such as Antoine Isaac, Baron Silvestre de Sacy (1758-1838), the leading orientalist of his day, for the many Arabic manuscripts and several other non-Latin manuscripts. Louis-Mathieu Langlès (1763-1824), Armans-Pierre Caussin de Perceval (1795-1871) and others also made important contributions. Many volumes begin with the "oriental" manuscripts (those in non-Latin scripts) in a separate part. In one folding plate (showing an Arabic text) many vowel points and some letters have been rendered in outline and hand-coloured in red, apparently to show where the editor has filled out the original. These were important pioneering studies of Arabic and other non-European texts and also serve to display the materials of the printing office, which had one of the world's largest collections of matrices for non-Latin types. Many of the types were cut exclusively for the printing office and Napoleon confiscated others from the Propaganda Fide in Rome soon after he declared himself King of Italy in 1805. With the bookplates of the Bibliothèque de Mouchy and Bibliothèque du Château de Mouchy-Noailles. The former is probably from Charles-Arthur-Tristan Languedoc de Noailles (1771-1834), Duc de Mouchy, and/or his younger brother Antonin (1777-1846), who succeeded him as Duke. With a few water stains in the first leaves of vol. 1, but generally in very good condition. The bindings of several volumes are slightly tattered, but most are in good condition. A remarkable and important set of scholarly editions of manuscripts, especially strong in Arabic and other non-Latin manuscripts. Cat. de la bibliotheque du Chateau de Mouchy (1872), item 2461 (this copy).
