Front flyleaf with the morocco bookplates of Laurent Meeus (see item #68), Pierre Van der Rest, and Raoul Simonson (see item #61). Ray 234; Vicaire IV, 265-66. Title page and a few other leaves with just a hint of marginal foxing, three or four leaves with very small marginal tear in fore edge (two expertly repaired), original wrappers slightly soiled, but A VERY FINE COPY, internally very bright and clean, with quite generous margins, and with THE STUNNING BINDING IN SUPERB CONDITION. There could hardly be a more appropriate binding for this work than Noulhac's elegant so-called "cathedral" design. As would be expected from a binder of his reputation, the design is beautiful, and the work has been performed with the greatest of skill. "Notre Dame de Paris," usually known in English as "The Hunchback of Notre Dame," is the quintessential Romantic novel, and its publication in 1831 made young Victor Hugo the leading Romanticist of 19th century France. As a child, Hugo (1802-85) was shaken by the experience of the arrest of a political refugee whom his mother had hidden for months in their garden, and partly as a result, he was ever after a supporter of the underdog. His deep sympathy for the oppressed is plainly seen in "Notre Dame," which brings together the twice-kidnapped gypsy dancer Esmeralda and the grotesque hunchback cathedral bell-ringer Quasimodo, whom she, for a moment, befriends. Although verisimilitude precludes an amorous relationship between two such characters, their kindness and heroism are nevertheless moving and dramatic, and the discovery of their skeletons in the same place at the end of the novel is compelling. But there is much more to Hugo's enduringly popular first novel than the relationship between gypsy and hunchback; in fact, for the author, the title he has chosen suggests an entirely different focus, as the famous cathedral serves throughout the book as the center of action and context or characterization. This work, a perfect vehicle for displaying the Romantic style, has been illustrated here by a number of leading French artists. Ray calls it a "noble volume, harmoniously planned, well printed on fine paper with ample margins, and splendidly adorned." Ray singles out the 14 plates by de Lemud for special praise, writing that they are "profoundly studied; they are drawn, indeed, for posterity," and also extols the headpieces and tailpieces, which he says are "as rewarding as the plates.".

        Essai monographique sur les Clérites, insectes Coléoptères.

      Gênes, Imprimerie des Frères Ponthenier, 1844. Royal-8vo (235 x 155mm). Atlas only with 47 handcoloured engraved plates. Loose. The complete atlas without the 2 text volumes of the rarest works on coleoptera. The detailed and finely handcoloured plates (all after drawings by the author) depict the treated beetles together with many exact anatomical magnifications of their mouthparts, legs etc. It has been said that Spinola himself burned all but a dozen copies of his book apparently because the book was so expensive that he could not sell it. "L'édition sauf une dizaine d'exemplaires, a été detruite par l'auteur à qui on reprochait de vendre son livre trop cher" (Brunet VI, 335)./Maxililian Spinola (1780-1857) made important contributions to entomology describing many taxa. Spinola came from a wealthy noble family in Genoa and much of his wealth derived from land held in Spain and South America from where he received many insects. His insect collection is preserved in the 'Museo Regionnale di Scienze Naturali' in Turin and in the 'Museo storia naturale' in Pisa. //Horn & Schenkling 20948; Nissen ZBI, 3941.

        Ascent of the Lower Range of Sinai.

      Moon, F.G., London 1844 - The Prints of David Roberts:Part 1 - The PrinterLouis Haghe (1806-1885) was one of the msot skillful exponents of the tinted lithograph who became a leading reproductive lithographer in England and on the Continent. Haghe's reputation as a lithographer was primarily based upon topographical views, of which Twyman notes "his most important work of this kind, the translation of Roberts' sketches of the Holy Land, represents the culmination of his art".Part 2 - The Publication of Roberts' Holy Land and EgyptRoberts first sketched in his journals "on the spot" the vaious subjects which, on returning to London, he transcribed into finished paintings and watercolors. These then formed the basis of the lithographs drawn and printed by Louis Haghe. It is interesting to note that in some instances Roberts' original drawings were twice or three times the size of the published print, which indicated the skill of Haghe and his assistants in transferring Roberts' designs onto lithographic stones.Part 3 - A Genesis of Roberts' PrintsDavid Roberts fulfilled a boyhood dream by visiting the East and recording what he saw there; by August 1838 he had resolved to "visit the Holy Land, and make drawings of the scenes of sacred history and the antiquities of Egypt". By this time Roberts had already established himself as a successful topographical artist and published his set of Spanish scenery as tinted lithographs, Picturesque Sketches in Spain, 1837. Eventually he would be elected to the prestigious Royal Academy on the strength of his topographical paintings.Part 4 - The PlatesRoberts' Holy Land and Egypt project has been called "the most ambitious work ever published in England with lithographic plates" (according to Micheal Twyman). Its production involved over 600 lithographic stones used over an eight to nine year period. It is generally agreed the lithographers Day & Haghe were the most efficient for such large scale work, while Louis Haghe himself was a master lithographer.The plate formats strongly influenced their presentation as prints: large full-page and small half-page vignettes representing what Roberts intended to be the difference between finished drawings and sketches. roberts was a good judge of accurate transposition of his watercolors and sketches into lithography.Today historians regard Roberts' Holy Land and Egypt as the last link between the established artist and topographical lithography. Since Roberts' prints were the most costly publishing venture in Britain at the time, undertaken by a publisher "on his own responsibility", Roberts sighed on its completion: " . thank God . that with being blessed with health and backed by my ever esteemed friend Louis Haghe I may also say the most satisfactory."References:Micheal Twyman, Lithography, 1800-1850, London, 1970Katherine Sim, David Roberts, London 1984J.R.

        POEMS

      John Owen, Cambridge, Mass 1844 - First Edition. Inscribed "From/J.R. Lowell - Elmwood/ 1844" on the half-title page. True first edition of this 1844 book, basically his first general collection (preceded by some shorter or occasional publications). This is evidently the "small paper" issue noted in BAL 13045 (7 1/16"x4 3/4") but this copy has been trimmed just a bit smaller (to 6 1/2"x 4 3/8") to accomodate a lovely full-leather binding featuring raised bands, gilt spine lettering and decorative devices, gilt rules to front and back covers, plus ruled gilt leather overlap inside front and rear covers (on all three sides, 7/8" in all around). There are a few pages with minor vertical creasing, and some minor foxing here and there, but overall this is a beautiful little copy of what is arguably his earliest comprehensive collection over a long career, with a contemporary dated (generic) presentation. (The binding duly notes "Presentation copy"). A couple minor rubs, one to a tip, and the other to top of spine, otherwise a very nice, display-worthy copy.

Recent green half morocco, richly gilt spine in 7 compartments with falcon ornaments, frontcover with gilt lettered label. "The finest work on Falconry which has ever been produced; not only on account of the beauty of the plates, wherein the hawks are depicted life-size and of the natural colours, but also for the general accuracy of the letterpress ... Exclusive of the ornamental title-page..., there are 16 folio plates, 2 of which are illustrative of Heron Hawking at the Loo, in 1844, with portraits of contemporary falconers; 2 others contain figures of hoods, jesses, lure, and other accessories; and the remaining 12 give life-size coloured figures of the hawks employed by falconers, admirably drawn by Joseph Wolf and J.B. Sonderland" (Harting, Bibliotheca Accipitraria 194). A fine copy with the first 3 text leaves skilfully reproduced. The 'Traité de fauconnerie' is the rarest and most beautiful sought after book on falconry ever published. According to the exhibition catalogue (1993) on falconry books in the Dutch Royal Library (The Hague) most likely only 100 copies were printed of which nowadays no more than 50 copies can be located.//Fine Bird Books 105; Nissen IVB, 832.

        Note on the Historical Results, deducible from Recent Discoveries in Afghanistan

      London: Wm. H. Allen and Co.,, 1844. Octavo. Original green blind-stamped cloth, title gilt to the spine. 17 lithographic plates. Slightly rubbed and bumped, spine-edges splitting at the head, hinges a little cracked, some foxing and browning as usual, a very good copy. First edition. Prinsep was a long-time "servant of John Company" and "recognized as one of ablest men in the service" (ODNB). On his retirement in 1843 after over 30 years in the sub-continent, he and his wife Sara, sister to Julia Margaret Cameron, set up in Little Holland House where their salon was "one of the artistic and literary centres of London" (ODNB). Prinsep wrote a number of important historical works, his Narrative of the Political and Military Transactions of British India being particularly highly thought of. This present work was based on his brother's numismatic collection relating to the Greek colonies of Central Asia, revealing "the names of sovereigns of Greek race, and their Scythian, and Parthian successors … also a language, the existence of which was hitherto unknown …" (author's preface). James Prinsep, assay master of the Calcutta mint, died in 1840, his coin cabinet, note-book, and sketches being inherited by his widow, and passed to Henry to edit for publication in order to "place in a cheap and commodious form before the popular reader, the means of gratifying curiosity upon a subject often referred to, and the existence of which … few are entirely ignorant.

        Beiträge zur Botanik. Erster Band (all published).

      . Leipzig, Verlag von Wilh. Engelmann, 1844, 8°, VIII, 242 pp., 9 lith. plates, ccontemp. card board; Schleiden's personal copy.. First Edition - Schleiden's copy, with his ownership stamp on the title and his bookplate! - Fine copy of Schleiden's collected papers reprints 14 previously published papers, including his "Beiträge zur Phytogenesis". - Acting upon his belief that plants represented aggregates of individual cells, Schleiden published a study of the vegetable cell, beginning with the nucleus (discovered by Robert Brown in 1832), and proceeding to a discussion of its role in the formation of cells. Schleiden's "watch-glass" theory of cell formation was wrong-he believed that they crystallized in a formative liquid containing sugar, gum and mucous-but it focused attention on the problem of cell reproduction and provided a testable hypothesis. More significant was Schleiden's insistence that plants consisted entirely of cells and cell products. - Garrison-Morton 112. PMM 307a (both Beiträge zur Phytogenesis (1st.Ed. 1838))

        Olney's School Atlas.

      New York: Pratt, Woodford and Co., 1844. - 4to., (12 ½ x 9 ½ inches). 23 fine engraved maps with original hand-color in full (some offsetting and spotting, slightly toned). Original publisher's printed pictorial paper wrappers (backstrip worn but holding, edges worn with some loss, a bit browned). Provenance: Contemporary manuscript ownership inscription and pen trials of "Charles N. Howland / Lisle Broome Co. NY / 1849." Later revised edition, first published in 1829. With five maps (including the world map) showing Texas as an independent Republic, with its border along the Rio Grande del Norte. The double-page map of the United States shows an enlarged Iowa, the Mandan District (between Iowa and Oregon Territory), and the Mexico border along the Rockies. When Olney's "New and Improved School Atlas" was first published, "it was immediately successful. The study of geography had but recently been introduced into American elementary education and was still a tail to the cosmographical kite. Its texts were dull and uninteresting, quite beyond the comprehension of elementary school students. Olney's book was suited to his pupils. Beginning with the simple and known facts of their immediate surroundings, it carried them forward to a knowledge of distant lands and complex phenomena. Rudimental as the method seems now, it was new at the time. The book passed through nearly a hundred editions and millions of copies were sold. There were few American school children of that generation whose ideas of the outer world, both true and false, were not formed by it" (Caryn Hannan, ed., "Connecticut Biographical Dictionary," p. 423).

        Visite de Mgr le Duc D'Aumale à la Croix-Rousse, dans l'atelier de M. Carquillat, le 24 Août 1841

      Lyon: manufactured by Didier, Petit et Cie; woven by Michel–Marie Carquillat,, 1844. Woven image on silk (the whole 111 × 84 cm) using Jacquard's punch-card method of weaving. Vertical surface abrasion to the lower half of the sheet where sometime centrally folded, causing a pale white line, the odd spot or stain but a remarkable survival in a very good state of preservation. One of the first paintings woven on a Jacquard loom, using the punch-card system, extremely rare. "Jacquard, born into a Lyonnese family of weavers, was inspired by Vaucanson's punched-card loom to invent the Jacquard attachment, which caused any loom that used it to be called a Jacquard loom. The attachment was an automatic device that for the first time allowed a single operator to control from the loom all the movements involved in the production of complex woven patterns … Jacquard's invention made use of a punched-card system for storing and generating patterns. In the production of designs different cards were tied together by ribbons and hundreds of cards could be used in elaborate designs. Charles Babbage later incorporated punched-card technology as a method of data and program input in the design of the Analytical Engine. For use in the United States Census of 1890, Herman Hollerith developed electrical machines for tabulating data stored on punched cards. Hollerith's company eventually evolved into IBM. Punched-card tabulation remained a primary means of data processing until it was phased out around 1960" (Origins of Cyberspace p. 261-262). "As well as patterned textiles for ordinary use, the technique was used to produce elaborate and complex images as exhibition pieces. One well-known piece was a shaded portrait of Jacquard seated at table with a small model of his loom. The portrait was woven in 1839 in fine silk by a firm in Lyon using a Jacquard punched-card loom. The image took 24,000 cards to produce, and each card had over 1,000 hole positions. Babbage was much taken with the portrait, which is so fine that it is difficult to tell with the naked eye that it is woven rather than engraved. He hung his own copy of the prized portrait in his drawing room and used it to explain his use of the punched cards in his Engine. The delicate shading, crafted shadows and fine resolution of the Jacquard portrait challenged existing notions that machines were incapable of subtlety. Gradations of shading were surely a matter of artistic taste rather than the province of machinery, and the portrait blurred the clear lines between industrial production and the arts. Just as the completed section of the Difference Engine played its role in reconciling science and religion through Babbage's theory of miracles, the portrait played its part in inviting acceptance for the products of industry in a culture in which aesthetics was regarded as the rightful domain of manual craft and art" (Swade, The Cogwheel Brain: Charles Babbage and the Quest to Build the First Computer, pp. 107-8). The "Visite de Mgr le Duc D'Aumale" incorporates this portrait. Created after the painting by C. Bonnefond, drawn and card-punched by A. Manin, and woven by Carquillat in 1844, it demonstrates the same fineness of detail as the portrait. It shows the duke with entourage admiring the woven portrait of Jacquard, with the loom and the punched-card attachment towering over the visitors. These famous woven paintings are extremely rare in their original large format version, as here.

        Sketches of Incidents and Adventures in the Life of Thomas Elworth

      Brainard & Co., 1844, - ELWORTH, Thomas. Sketches of Incidents and Adventures in the Life of Thomas Elworth, the American Pedestrian. Boston: Brainard & Co., 1844. Pp. (2),[iii]-viii,[1]-68. 8vo, plain self-wraps. The author, born in Perry, Maine in 1816, leads the reader on a personal odyssey of his life, from his early years growing up in Nova Scotia, traipsing the roads between Halifax and Windsor as a young boy, often relying on the kindness of passing travellers to provide a night's accommodation or a few days work. Upon leaving home at the tender age of ten, young Thomas decided that a life aboard ship would suit him well, serving as a cook on a trading schooner, working for a Pictou ship-builder, and later, sailing on schooners to the Caribbean. It soon becomes apparent that young Elworth saw himself as something of a romantic hero, recalling how he gallantly risked his life to rescue a drowing lass who flung herself into the sea when their eyes met, or when, as a passenger on a schooner bound for Saint John, he took the ship's wheel during a fierce storm, when the captain could no longer manage to steer the vessel clear, averting a near disaster. Between his sailing adventures, he would often return to his familiar haunts in Nova Scotia, walking great distances, knowing he could always rely on ". my own good legs with a strong body to support them". By the age of 20, he claimed to have been a mail carrier, walking between the towns of Windsor and Lunenburg, carrying the fifteen pound bags, for twenty dollars a month, as well as a fox trapper, sometimes trapping as many as 50 animals a day, living off the money he made selling the pelts for two dollars a piece to traders. For three years, he said that he worked in St. Louis, Missouri, as a city night watchman, day police officer, carrier of two daily newspapers, runner for an insurance company, general bill poster and collector (all apparently at the same time). In 1842, he informed a man that he could walk 1000 miles in 1000 consecutive hours and was challenged to do just that. He includes an exhaustive table of the times and speeds with which he succeeded in this feat, along with personal comments on the weather, what he wore on rainy days, his health and the food he ate during his "arduous task". The following year he was challenged to repeat the event again and once more, he succeeded. Soon after, it was suggested that he ". perform 1,000 miles as quick as the fastest horse that could be produced. " Fortunately for Thomas Elworth, it was somewhat late in the season, and the race was put on hold until a later date. The author concludes with a short poetical work and his assurances that he would hopefully appear before the public in the near future, as either a pedestrian or a writer. Not in TPL, Lande. Lacking front cover, with original rear wrap. First leaf and rear wrap soiled, with the rear being creased and partially detached, corners bumped, a few pages dog-eared, with some light smudges at the top corners, else a delightfully unabashed account of the author's "life". 1,000.00 [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        The Western Tourist, or Emigrant's Guide through the States of Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, and Missouri and the Territories of Wisconsin and Iowa: Being an Accurate and Concise Description of Each State, Territory, and County

      New York: J.H. Colton, 1844. Hardcover. Near fine. Early edition of this often reprinted guide, which was first published in 1839. 3.5" x 6", pp vi, [7]-119, with hand-colored folding map. Modern cloth with leather label mounted to front board, new endpapers. Light foxing, map with one closed tear along a fold and a few pinholes; near fine. Just a few years earlier, the region described in this guide had been considered the outskirts of civilization, but now (we are told in the Preface) "it is the residence of an active, enterprizing, and intelligent population," where "cities have sprung up as if by magic; agriculture, manufactures and commerce flourish; [and] literature, science, and the arts are extending their healthful and invigorating influence throughout the country." Providing details of population, topography, and natural resources, this guide was to offer useful information for the potential settler, as well as for the tourist, who could consult it about distances between towns and the routes of railroads and stage coaches.

        Über Krätze (pp.280-292, 44-54, 163-172, mit 1 von Elfinger gezeichneten lith. Taf. mit 3 Abb.).

      . Med. Jb., 1844/46-47.Bd. - Wien, Braumüller & Seidel, 1844, 8°, (2), 384; /(2), 384 pp., 1 lith. Taf., 1 Halbledereinband der Zeit.. Erste Ausgabe dieser "epochemachenden" Arbeit! - In seiner "allseitig wie ein Erlösungswerk aus jahrhundertelanger Finsterniss begrüsste Studie über "Krätze" sehen wir den Schöpfer der neuen dermatologischen Schule geistig fertig vor uns. In dieser Arbeit waren die in späteren Jahren deutlicher markirten Erkenntnisse über die wichtigste Form der Hautkrankheiten, das Ekzem, sowie über den örtlichen Charakter vieler Dermatopathien schon deutlich zu erkennen - sie sind eben aus dieser Studie organisch hervorgegangen." - "Es ist nicht richtig, wie dies jüngst (1880) von unbekannter Feder hingeschrieben worden, das Hebra das pathologische Experiment nicht kulitivrt hat. Gerade das Gegentheil ist wahr und Jeder, der sich mit diesem Gegenstande halbwegs beschäftig hat, weiss es. Niemals wäre Hebra dazu gelangt seine epochemachenden Arbeiten über "Krätze" und "Ekzem" zu schaffen, hätte er nicht das Experiment methodisch und konsequent geübt, und niemals wäre es ihm gelungen, ohne das Gewicht der von ihm vorgeführten experimentellen Thatsachen den durch die Tradition geheiligten und durch äussere Verhältnisse gestützten Glauben and die "Krätz" und "psorische" Dyskrasie so rasch aus dem Sattel zu heben und die Welt zum Wissen zu bekehren; und eben soweing wäre ihm die kühne Revolution und der beispiellose Erfolg auf dem Gebiete der Therapie der Hautkrankheiten gelungen, hätte er nicht auch in dieser das Experiment zu Hilfe gezogen..." Kaposi - "Als Hebra 1841 sein Werk begann, da gab es eine Fülle von Systemen und Theorien in der Dermatologie. Man konnte die Hautkrankheiten in zwei Klassen einteilen, in akute und chronische, wenn man es mit Johann Peter Frank hielt, oder in 14 Klassen nach I.P. Plenk oder in 8 Klassen, wenn man R.Willan und Th.Bateman folgte, oder in 12 Genres nach J.L.Alibert, in 4 Sektionen nach P.Rayer oder in 8 ordres nach P.L.A.Cazenave und H.F.Schedel. Man konnte sich mit Conrad Heirich Fuchs, einem Schüler J.L.Schönleis vorstellen, daß die Krankheit wie ein Parasit im Inneren des Körpers hause und nach außen, an die Haut Gebilde hervortreibe, Blüten, Knospen, Früchte, die wie diese zu Licht und Luft strebten. Wie immer sie erscheinen möchten, die ausgemachte Tatsache galt es, daß sie ihr Entstehen einer eigenen Säftemischung, einer herpetischen Dyskrasie, verdankten. Kein Wunder, daß man es als gefährlich ansah, diese "vorteilhaften Ablagerungen" kranker Säfte in die Haut durch Behandlung in das Innere des Körpers zurückzutreiben, Hautkrankheiten zu heilen!" - "Wie soll dies nun geschehen? welchen pathologischen Vorgang denkt man sich denn, wenn man vom Zurücktreiben oder Unterdrüken der Krätze spricht?" fragtfrisch und unbekümmert um all gelehrten Theorien und Systeme 1844 der junge Secundarius der Wiener Ausschlagsabteilung, indem er mit genialem Griff die allgemeine Fragestellung auf die allgewöhnlichste, alltäglichste Hauterkrankung, die Krätze relativiert. Sie hatte von jeher als Typus einer ansteckenden Hautkrankheit und zugleich als einer solchen gegolten, die aus verdorbenen Säftemischung, aus der "psorischen Dyskrasie" entstehe. Daß bei dieser Krankheit ein Tierchen, die Krätzmilbe, regelmäßig vorkomme, war zwar schon seit Jahrhunderten bekannt; Wichmann in Hannover und Guldener von Lobes hatten 1786 bzw. 1791 erst wieder so klar darüber gehandelt. Aber trotzdem hatte man auf deutschem Boden weiter lieber an die posrische Dyskrasie eines Hanemanns oder eines Autenrieths geglaubt. Hebra aber hat das Buch der Natur aufgeschlagen: Er hat Versuche gemacht und andere und sich selbst mit der Krätzemile infiziert: "Nun setze ich mir eine, früher unter dem Mikroskop betrachtete lebende Milbe an die Innenfläche des Mittelfingers der linken Hand und im Verlauf von 8 Tagen, während welcher Zeit ein bedeutendes über den ganzen Körper verbreitetes Jucken mich plage, erschien beinahe an beiden Händen zugleich die ersten Krätzblüthen. Um mich genau von dem Gange der Krankheit zu belehren, wandte ich hindurch für zwei Monate keine Mittel zur Heilung derselben an, wo ich denn jenen Verlauf beobachtete, den ich beschrieb"." - Die Folgerungen, die Hebra aus diesen Versuchen zog, lautete: "Ohne Sarcoptes gibt es keine Krätze". Damit war die Lehre von der parasitären Natur det Scabies endgültig zum Durchbruch gekommen, gleichzeitig aber auch die jahrtausendealte humorale Krasenlehre in einer ihrer typischsten Ausprägung gestürzt. Krätze, Friesel, Impetigines, Herpes waren nun nicht mehr "Ausschläge", Hebra hat sie zu Krankheiten eines eigenen Organs, zu Hauterkrankungen gemacht." Lesky

        A Scarce Record of Thomas Dorr's Trial for Treason After His Failed Revolt

      Providence, R.I. 1844 - Book. Report of the Trial of Thomas Wilson Dorr, for Treason; Including the Testimony at Length.Together with the Sentence of the Court, and the Speech of Mr. Dorr Before Sentence. Providence, R.I., B.F. Moore, 1844. 1st ed., 115 pp., 5 1/3 x 8 3/4 in. Based on Rhode Island's colonial charter, over half of adult males were disenfranchised. Thomas W. Dorr led the effort to change Rhode Island's political system and expand voting rights. After trying to change the system internally, he created the People's Party, held an extralegal constitutional convention, and set up a competing government. The Rhode Island General Assembly drafted a rival constitution, and in 1842, both groups voted on their respective Constitutions. Both Dorr and sitting Governor Samuel Ward King were elected governor, but King refused to accept the People's Constitution, declared martial law, and accused Dorr of treason. While he did not attempt to seize the State House or governmental institutions, a few armed clashes did occur. Dorr fled the state, but returned and was convicted in 1843 but released for health reasons two years later. Ultimately, Rhode Island greatly liberalized voting rights in the aftermath of the rebellion. This trial record, prepared by his defense attorneys, is especially scarce. R & B 44-2044. Sabin 20649.

        Memoir of Jemima Wilkinson, A Preacheress of the Eighteenth [18th] Century ~ Containing an Authentic Narrative of Her Life.

      R. L. Underhill & Co, Bath, NY 1844 - 288pp., Bound in fill calf with a gilt lettered black leather spine label. Old name in pencil on end paper. Was first published in 1821 Minor dampstaining on preliminary pages and minor but even foxing throughout. Pagination: portrait, (1) title, (1) blank, [iii]-iv preface, [v]-viii introduction, [9 ]-288pp. Spine tail a little chipped. Jemima Wilkinson, who in 1790 founded the religious community of Jerusalem in western New York was known for her visions, religious dreams, and prophesying. During the course of a fever, she fell into a prolonged trance from which she emerged with the conviction that she had died. She believed that her original soul and body was now inhabited by the `Spirit of Life' which came from God "to warn a lost and guilty, gossiping, dying World to flee from the wrath to come." One of her followers, Sarah Richards also had visions. She would swoon as she went into vision and lie "motionless and apparently lifeless" for a while. Afterwards, she would rise up to deliver her message. Curiously enough, less than 30 miles away, Joseph Smith had the revelations that founded the Mormon religion several years after Wilkinson. William Miller, another Upstate New York farmer, also came from this region and began the Seventh Day Adventists. New York itself is known as the "burned over district" because so many revivalist preachers come from this same area. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
