The supplement, 'Awful Assassination' brought the details of the Smith brothers martyrdom to the British and European Saints. The Millennial Star during this time period was one of the only LDS periodicals, and this supplement is where many of the scattered faithful would have received the news of the Prophet Joseph Smith's murder.

        RESEARCHES ON LIGHT: AN EXAMINATION OF ALL THE PHENOMENA CONNECTED WITH THE CHEMICAL AND MOLECULAR CHANGES PRODUCED BY THE INFLUENCE OF THE SOLAR RAYS; EMBRACING ALL THE KNOWN PHOTOGRAPHIC PROCESSES, AND NEW DISCOVERIES IN THE ART

      London: Printed for Longman, Brown, Green, and Longmans, 1844. First edition. 8vo., vii, 303 pp., 32 pp. adverts, hand-colored engraved folding frontispiece, text diagrams. Recased in the decoratively blind-stamped publisher's original cloth. The lower edge of the binding is rubbed, with moderate wear at the tips. A very good copy. "Robert Hunt (1807 - 1887) was a librarian keeper of mining records the the Museum of Practical Geology and professor of mechanical engineering at the Royal School of Mines, at London. He carried on numerous photographic and photomechanical experiments and he was one of the founders of the London Photographic Society. These experiments with organic and inorganic light-sensitive substances, which, with characteristic unselfishness, he made public during the early forties of the last century, were extremely useful in the study of photochemistry, which was then in its infancy, and were of great service for years to those who came after him and used his researches for the basis of their studies." Eder- HISTORY OF PHOTOGRAPHY p. 326. "Included are reports on Hunt's earliest experiments on solar energy and its effect involving both vegetation and metallic salts or compounds. An introductory chapter on the discoveries of Daguerre and Fox Talbot is exceedingly useful as it establishes the range of various light sensitive materials applicable to photography, including platinum, iron and antimony. His is the first use of the word 'platinotype' with reference to platinum prints. The book as a whole is one of the most crucial and one of the earliest theoretical treatises on the science, and differs slightly from the later, 1854 edition, except in some more recent discoveries." From the Arno Press description THE LITERATURE OF PHOTOGRAPHY.Often referred to as the first history of photography, a distinction not quite true. Gernsheim - Incunabula No. 668.

From 1849 till 1852 he was U. S. commissioner of patents ... He was one of the founders of the American ethnological society. He published 'Descriptive and Historical Account of Hydraulic and other Machines, Ancient and Modern' (New York, 1842; 15th ed., with additions, 1863); 'The World a Workshop, or the Physical Relation of Man to the Earth' (1855); 'Life in Brazil,' describing a visit to that country in 1845-6, with an appendix on a collection of American antiquities (1857); 'Thoughts on Matter and Force' (1858); 'Reminiscences in the Patent Office' (1859); and a variety of miscellaneous essays on the philosophy and history of inventions, which appeared chiefly in the 'Transactions of the Franklin Institute.' His 'Experiments on Marine Propulsion, or the Virtue of Form in Propelling Blades,' was reprinted in Europe. In 1860 he published an essay that he had read before the Ethnological society, entitled 'Inorganic Forces Ordained to Supersede Human Slavery.'"(Appleton's Cyclopedia)The attribution to Ewbank is based on the Library of Congress deposit copy, which bears the annotation, "By Thomas Ewbank". The "Society of Literary & Scientific Chiffonniers" is fictitious.

        Central Asia; comprising Bokhara, Cabool, Persia, The River Indus, & Countries Eastward Of It

      London: J. Arrowsmith, 1844. Map. Engraving with original hand-coloring. Image measures 20.5 x 29". This elegant map of Central Asia centers on modern-day Iran and includes portions of Iraq, Turkmenistan, Afghanistan, and Pakistan. As an annotation below the title states, the map was based on surveys by Alexander Burnes, a Scottish explorer, whose 1834 narrative of his travels through the region was one of the most popular books in Britain in the period. Arrowsmith's map reflects the great increase of knowledge Burnes's travels produced. It is extremely detailed and labeled with cities, political boundaries, rivers, and roads. Annotations about land and native people are scattered throughout, and Arrowsmith's journey is marked in red. Some regions extend beyond the borders of the map, which extends onto an additional third fold-out section affixed to the right side. The map is from Arrowsmith's "London Atlas of Universal Geography." It is in very good condition with few chips and tears and minor soiling. John Arrowsmith (1790-1873) was from a family of London based cartographers and publishers, and was a founding member of the Royal Geographical Society. His "London Atlas," known for its understated elegance, is considered one of the first truly "modern" atlases of the nineteenth century. This map is a fine example of Arrowsmith's work.
