Seder Hagada bilshon HaKodesh veIm perush shel Marathi. [= Passover Haggadah in Hebrew with Marathi translation] Translated into Marathi and published by Haim Joseph Hallegua. (Chaim Yosef Chaligoa) of Cochin, India. Passover Haggadah for the Bene Israel community in India. This is the first printed Indian Haggadah, the first illustrated Indian Haggadah; the first Haggada in Marathi, and the first Haggadah according to the traditions of the Bene Israel community. Hebrew and Marathi on facing pages. The depiction of Moshe and Aharon on the title page is based on the illustration in the Amsterdam 1712 edition. With 13 vignettes depicting the 13 simanim, the stages, of the seder, "kadesh", "urchatz" etc. The final illustration displays the constituent ritual elements of the Seder plate, all represented in a distinctly Indian style. The Marathi speaking Jews of India known as the Bene Israel ("Children of Israel) had for millennia maintained the basic elements of Judaism (circumcision, dietary laws, the Sabbath, certain fasts and festivals, and the recitation of Shema Yisrael), despite their near-total isolation from the rest of world Jewry. When they began to settle in Bombay toward the end of the eighteenth century, their first encounter with normative Judaism occurred through contact with the Cochin Jews of the Malabar coast. Eager now to assimilate the many elements of postbiblical rabbinic Judaism that had been lost to them, they built their first synagogue in Bombay in 1796. The subsequent arrival in the city of Jews from Cochin and from the oriental countries enriched their opportunities for Jewish learning and stimulated a religious revival of which the Haggadah of 1846 is but one example.

Dr. Francisco Jose de Lacerda e Almeida's diary documenting his travels in Central Africa is serialised. There is a great deal of material devoted to the Malaysia and the Malay archipelago generally and even several articles on North America. Many of these are the first published accounts of Portuguese voyages and expeditions, and are augmented by government documents, statistical information as well as accounts of the most important international expeditions of the time: Dumont d'Urville's voyage to the Antarctic (1837-40), Dupetit-Thouars' circumnavigation (1836-39), James Clark Ross - a printed extract of a letter written on the Erebus, Canadian Arctic exploration by the Hudson's Bay Company vessels, Wilkes's US Exploring Expedition in the South Pacific in 1838-40 et al. The publication also include texts of international anti-slavery treaties, documents on exports and imports, articles on the latest navigation techniques and machines, e.g. Steam ships, et al. There is even a review of Frederic Marryat's Romancos Maritimos. The charts include the harbors of Lisbon, Goa, Quellimane (Mozambique, hand coloured), Dilly (Timor), Mossamedes (modern Namibia, Angola) and Lobito (Benguela province of Angola); there are also folding plans of the city of Goa, a Portuguese fort in Pungo an Dongo (Angola); a topographical chart of the National Forest of Leiria (Portugal) and others. Plates include two views of the rapids de São Salvador da Pesqueira on the river Douro (Portugal) - before and after the works which removed the rapids and made the river navigable at this point; a nicely executed large folding view of the façade of the famous ruin of St. Paul's Cathedral in Macau, a reprint of a document in Chinese, a draft of a vapour vessel, a statistical table of the population of the Portuguese Goa and others. The volumes break down as follows: Volume I contains 11 issues and a supplement (pp. 529-33), followed by an index (3 pp.), as described in Fonseca, and "Estatutos da Associação Maritima" (12 pp., paginated separately), which is not mentioned in Fonseca. In volume II, there are 12 issues. Volumes III, IV and V each contain 24 issues: 12 in the "Parte Official," 12 more in the "Parte Não Official." In volume VI, only 4 issues each of the "Parte Official" and "Parte Não Official" were published. Fonseca calls for only 1 folding plate and 3 maps in the "Parte Não Official" of volume III, where this copy has 3 plates and 4 maps. Fonseca also fails to mention the single leaf preceding the text in both "Partes" of volume IV. Innocêncio I, 72; Fonseca, pp21-22; Sabin 1577a

        Der deutsche Tribun. Erstes Heft. Nachzudrucken!

      Ohne Ort, Verlag und Jahr, (wohl Herisau, Literarisches Institut Mich. Schläpfer, 1846). - 11,5 x 6,5 cm. 95 Seiten. *Stammhammer I, S. 103. Einzige Ausgabe, Rarissimum des deutschen Vormärz. - "Der deutsche Tribun" war der kurzlebige Versuch des radikaldemokratischen Kämpfers Heinzen einer monatlich erscheinenden kritischen Zeitschrift, sie sollte " . ein Begleiter der deutschen Tagespolitik zu werden, er gedenkt sie als Herold zügelloser Wahrheit so lang zu begleiten, bis er durch wirkliche Preßfreiheit [.] überflüssig geworden ist" (Heinzen im Prolog). - Außerordentlich selten, das KVK verzeichnet weltweit nur 3 originale Exemplare (UB Köln, Amsterdam und Univ. Madison US), selbst die Bay. Staatsbibl. hat nur eine Kopie. Die UB Madison nennt noch ein zweites Heft, das in Mühlhausen erschienen sein soll, aber ansonsten unbekannt ist. - Der radikale Publizist K. Heinzen (1809-1880) musste 1844 aufgrund seiner kritischen Schrift "Die Preußische Bürokratie" aus Deutschland über Belgien in die Schweiz fliehen. Nach seiner Ausweisung emigrierte er 1847 in die USA, wo er mit Ausnahme einer kurzen Rückkehr nach Deutschland während der Februarrevolution von 1848 bis zu seinem Tod lebte. Er publizierte von 1841-1848 mehrere Schriften im deutschsprachigen Raum und später von Amerika aus bis 1879 verschiedene demokratisch gesinnte Zeitschriften (vgl. NDB VIII, 452f.). 1847 führte er eine publizistische Auseinandersetzung mit Karl Marx und Friedrich Engels, distanzierte sich aber von den Kommunisten. Heinzen forderte in seinen Schriften "eine antiklerikale, antiautoritäre, technisch und sozial fortschrittliche Demokratie. Manche der von ihm schwungvoll geschilderten Reformen sind inzwischen verwirklicht" (NDB). - Die vorliegende Zeitschrift "Der deutsche Tribun" (publiziert im Hosentaschenformat und ohne separates Titelblatt) wurde wohl sofort nach Erscheinen beschlagnahmt, es ist die seltenste von Heinzens Schriften. Das vorliegende Exemplar schlummerte (bis dato unberührt) in der Wittelsbacher Bibliothek Schloß Tegernsee. Sprache: Deutsch Gewicht in Gramm: 100 Broschierter Umschlag der Zeit.

        Punch, (Magazine); or the London Charivari Volumes 1 - 47 1841- 1864; Vol. 52-53 & Vol.64-65 Half-Bound Maroon Morrocco set Dickens RBJO

      Punch 1846-1864 1867-68 1873-74, London - Demy Folio, [28.5/11inches], full gilt-embossed half-bound Maroon Levant/Marbled boards 51 volumes in 26 tomes. Please feel free to inquire as to particulars and/or additional photographs. . Punch, or The London Charivari was a British weekly magazine of humour and satire established in 1841 by Henry Mayhew and engraver Ebenezer Landells. Historically, it was most influential in the 1840s and 1850s, when it helped to coin the term "cartoon" in its modern sense as a humorous illustration. After the 1940s, when its circulation peaked, it went into a long decline, closing in 1992. It was revived in 1996, but closed again in 2002. Punch was founded on 17 July 1841 on an initial investment of £25. It was jointly edited by Mayhew and Mark Lemon. It was subtitled The London Charivari in homage to Charles Philipon's French satirical humour magazine Le Charivari. Reflecting their satiric and humorous intent, the two editors took for their name and masthead the anarchic glove puppet, Mr. Punch, of Punch and Judy; the name also referred to a joke made early on about one of the magazine's first editors, Lemon, that "punch is nothing without lemon". Mayhew ceased to be joint editor in 1842 and became "suggestor in chief" until he severed his connection in 1845. The magazine initially struggled for readers, except for an 1842 "Almanack" issue which shocked its creators by selling 90,000 copies. In December 1842 due to financial difficulties the magazine was sold to Bradbury and Evans, both printers and publishers. Bradbury and Evans capitalised on newly evolving mass printing technologies and also were the publishers for Charles Dickens and William Makepeace Thackeray.The term "cartoon" to refer to comic drawings was first used in Punch in 1843, when the Houses of Parliament were to be decorated with murals, and "cartoons" for the mural were displayed for the public; the term "cartoon" then meant a finished preliminary sketch on a large piece of cardboard, or cartone in Italian. Punch humorously appropriated the term to refer to its political cartoons, and the popularity of the Punch cartoons led to the term's widespread use. The illustrator Archibald Henning designed the cover of the magazine's first issues. The cover design varied in the early years, though Richard Doyle designed what became the magazine's masthead in 1849. Artists who published in Punch during the 1840s and 50s included John Leech, Richard Doyle, John Tenniel and Charles Keene. This group became known as "The Punch Brotherhood", which also included Charles Dickens who joined Bradbury and Evans after leaving Chapman and Hall in 1843. Punch authors and artists also contributed to another Bradbury and Evans literary magazine called Once A Week (est.1859), created in response to Dickens' departure from Household Words. In the 1860s and 1870s, conservative Punch faced competition from upstart liberal journal Fun, but after about 1874, Fun's fortunes faded. At Evans's café in London, the two journals had "Round tables" in competition with each other. After months of financial difficulty and lack of market success, Punch became a staple for British drawing rooms because of its sophisticated humour and absence of offensive material, especially when viewed against the satirical press of the time. The Times and the Sunday paper News of the World used small pieces from Punch as column fillers, giving the magazine free publicity and indirectly granting a degree of respectability, a privilege not enjoyed by any other comic publication. Punch would share a friendly relationship with not only The Times but journals aimed at intellectual audiences such as the Westminster Review, which published a fifty-three page illustrated article on Punch's first two volumes. Historian Richard Altick writes that "To judge from the number of references to it in the private letters and memoirs of the 1840s.Punch had become a household word within a year or two of its founding, beginning in the middle c [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Notes of a military reconnoissance, from Fort Leavenworth, in Missouri, to San Diego, in California, including parts of the Arkansas, Del Norte, and Gila rivers.

      Emory, Brevet Major of the Corps of Topographical Engineers and an outstanding surveyor and mapmaker, here provides a groundbreaking description of the terrain, flora and fauna, and peoples of the historic Southwest. J. Gregg Layne (Zamorano 80) says, "A library of Western Americana is incomplete without [Emory's report]." The volume is illustrated with => 43 lithographed plates done by Weber & Co., including a portrait of "A New Mexican Indian Woman," a fish of the Gila River, a map of "the actions fought at San Pasqual in upper California between the Americans and Mexicans Dec. 6th & 7th 1846," and a view of cliffside hieroglyphics, as well as a series of 14 botanical images.

        Temple at Wady Dabod, Nubia

      1846 - ROBERTS, David. Original lithograph plate, Temple at Wady Dabod, Nubia. [London: F.G. Moon, 1842-49]. Hand-colored lithograph on onionskin, measuring 9-7/8 by 13-3/4 inches, on original mount, measuring 16-1/2 by 23-5/8 inches. $3000.Beautiful original hand-colored lithograph of the Temple at Wady Dabod, Nubia, from the superb large format first issue of Roberts’ landmark work, Egypt and Nubia (only the first issue is hand-colored on onionskin and mounted on heavier card).Famed lithographer Louis Haghe produced splendid lithographs (including this print) of drawings Roberts made during his 1838-9 journey to Egypt, which were received with widespread enthusiasm when they appeared in 1846-9. “Among all the artists working in Egypt… [Roberts] stands head and shoulders above the rest, both for the number of sites and monuments he recorded and for his interesting presentation” (Clayton, 6). “Haghe’s skillful and delicate lithography, and his faithful interpretation of Roberts’ draughtsmanship and dramatic sense, combine in what are undoubtedly remarkable examples of… lithographic works. Particularly in the Egypt and Nubia section, one feels that the colossal subjects and broad vistas were ideally suited to Roberts’ talent” (Abbey, 341). Slight chipping (and one tear) and soiling to edges of mount. Print in fine condition. Magnificent hand-colored lithograph from the most famous and desirable work on Egypt.

        A DIALOGUE BETWEEN JOSH. [sic] SMITH & THE DEVIL.

Parley Pratt composed it while he was stumping for Joseph Smith's presidential candidacy in the eastern states in the spring of 1844" - Crawley.

        Explanations: A Sequel to "Vestiges of the Natural History of Creation"

      London: John Churchill 1846, 2nd Edition. () vii, 205, [8]. Very good. Octavo. Original red cloth boards with gilt title and lines on spine. Decorative embossing outlined along front and back. Slight foxing on foredging. Crisp, clean text. Originally, this defense of "Vestiges of the Natural History of Creation" was to be published as letters to the Times followed by a pamphlet. However, the publisher convinced Chambers that it should be made into a book, bound similarly to the original. By the time this work was published, "Vestiges" was in it's fifth edition and the two were often sold together. Chamber's remained the anonymous author of both works until after his death and the 12th edition of "Vestiges" was released. The publisher felt there was no longer a need for anonymity. Darwin felt that these two works had opened the minds of the general population, making acceptance of his "Theory of Evolution" in 1859 more popular. This is a lovely copy and an infamous work relating to evolution and natural history..

      Castile, N.Y.: Published by the Author, 1846. First Edition. Hard Cover. Good/No Jacket. First volume fair, second volume good. Significant loss of leather from vol. 1 spine, staining and light foxing throughout vol. 1 with minor pencil notes in front & end matter, vol. 2 moderately foxed throughout, vol. 2 boards rubbed. 1846 Hard Cover. Complete in two volumes. iv, 255, [1]; xi, 111, [1] pp. An important and uncommon work on botanical medicine, the second volume of which is particularly scarce (see below). Hoolihan 685, S-254.4: 'A greatly expanded version of The family medical adviser in which Cobb takes into account various elements of the health reform movement, e.g., dress reform, hydropathy, phrenology, etc. The number of medicinal plants described in the first part has increased to 213 from the 113 provided in his 1828 work. The second volume described on the title-page (The Mother's guide) was apparently never published... This conclusion was proved erroneous when in January 2004 we acquired a copy of the second volume. Cobb begins the Mother's guide with a description 'of those diseases and conditions which afflict females before marriage' and their botanic treatment. He briefly describes the female organs of generation; and although ignoring the act of copulation, describes conception, which he maintains takes place in the ovaries... Cobb is concerned about the transmission of moral and physical characteristics from parents to their children, stressing that 'exercising the reasoning faculties' before conception results in a corresponding 'increased development in the offspring'; just as 'acts of devotion would increase veneration, &c.' He adds, 'it is well understood, that a firm constitution, and a well organized body in parents, are favorable to the health and physical ability of the offspring.' Cobb briefly describes the 'signs of conception'; abortion and miscarriage; and the stages of pregnancy. He devotes considerable attention, however, to labor and its complications. Cobb makes frequent reference to the practice [of] his fellow botanics Thomas Hersey and Elisha Smith, as well as to the obstetrical and gynecological texts of regular school authors such as Thomas Denman, William P. Dewees, Robert Gooch and N.C. Chailly-Honore. Throughout his text Cobb refers the reader to related topics and page numbers in his first volume, indicating that it was off the press (or at least in page proofs) at the time he was writing this second volume.'

      An original pen & ink drawing by Edward lear, taken from 'A Book of Nonsense,' first published in 1846. This drawing has been examined and fully authenticated as Lear's work by the late Vivien Noakes, the world expert on Edward Lear. The drawing accompanies the limerick, 'There was an old personof Dover.' It is drawn on silk, or possibly fine rag paper, and then laid on paper for support. It was drawn, almost certainly for presentation to friends, and would originally have been part of a group of drawings bound in book form, probably at the time of its making in the early 1860's. There is some staining and browning, but otherwise the drawing is in excellent condition. The drawing is mounted on acid free card and is supplied with a copy of the letter of authentification from Vivien Noakes. Mount sixe: 24.7 x 30.5 cm.Original 'Nonsense' drawings by Lear are exceedingly rare. This item is subject to vat.

        Riviere Derwent Pres De Richemont (Ile Van-Diemen)..

      Paris: circa, 1846. Hand coloured lithograph, 190 x 300 mm. Original lithograph from Dumont d'Urville's "Voyage au Pole Sud", showing the Derwent River, in the foreground is a coach-and-four going at full speed, at this time coaches were running between Hobart and New Norfolk. Craig notes that this is one of the first pictures of coaches.Dumont d'Urville's instruction from King Louis-Philippe were to explore the South Pole. Up to this time France had taken no part in Antarctic discovery which had been dominated by the English. Dumont d'Urville left Toulon on September 7, 1837 with two ships, the "Astrolabe" and the "Zelee", on a voyage that was to become dogged by mishap and illness. The official artist Ernest Auguste Goupil died in Hobart whilst the expedition was there in April 1840. Le Breton (1818-1866) who was on the voyage as assistant surgeon, replaced Goupil as official artist as his considerable abilities as an artist had come to the attention of the commander of the expedition. Le Breton resigned from his medical functions in 1848 and transferred to the Department of Maps and Charts in Paris where he remained until his death on 30 August 1866.

        The illuminated Bible, containing the Old and New Testaments...With marginal readings, references, and chronological dates. Also, the Apocrypha....Embellished with sixteen hundred historical engravings by J.A. Adams, more than fourteen hundred of which are from original designs by J.G. Chapman.

      New York: Harper & Brothers Folio (34 cm, 13.4"). Frontis., add. engr. t.-p., [6], 844, [2], 128, [6], frontis., add. engr. t.-p., [2], 256, 3, [1], 8, 14, 34 pp.; illus.. 1846 When the Harper firm published The Illuminated Bible near the midpoint of the 19th century, the company produced one of the most elaborate and costly American Bibles to that time. O'Callaghan says, "This work was originally announced in 1843, and was issued in 54 numbers at 25 cents each. J.A. Adams, the engraver, is credited with having taken the first electrotype in America from a woodcut. Many in this Bible are so done. Artists were engaged for more than six years in the preparation of the designs and engravings . . . at a cost of over $20,000." The title's use of the word "illuminated" refers not (as usual) to decoration in gold, but both to the huge number of illustrations and to the fact that the half-titles, the title-leaves, and the presentation and birth, death, and marriage leaves are printed using colored inks. Concerning the illustrations, Frank Weitenkampf wrote in The Boston Public Library Quarterly (July, 1958, pp. 154–57): "The engravings after Chapman carefully reproduced the prim line-work method of the Englishman Bewick, introduced here by Alexander Anderson. . . . [T]his Harper publication was a remarkable production for its time and place, and retains its importance in the annals of American book-making. W.J. Linton, noted wood-engraver and author, knew ‘no other book like this, so good, so perfect in all it undertakes.'" Binding, signed: Contemporary red morocco, cover panels deeply beveled, inside bevel framed in wide gilt roll with gilt-stamped corner decorations, spine gilt extra, turn-ins with beautiful, bright gilt rolls. Signed by Cook & Somerville of New York. Provenance: Front cover gilt-stamped "Mary Van Horne Clarkson"; inscriptions of several members of the Van Horne Clarkson family, mostly in New York. Binding as above, joints and extremities rubbed, covers with scrapes and discolorations but gilt still bright; repair to foot of front cover joint (hinged in place with appropriate papers; exterior secured with toned tissue), abraded leather consolidated. As might well be expected of such a massive volume, hinges and joints are tender. Occasional very faint spotting, pages generally clean, with family register leaves unused. Last (index) leaf with tear from inner margin extending into text, repaired with long-fiber tissue and wheat starch paste. => In its signed binding, this is an interesting example of a very impressive production.

Complete. 41 leaves: [5], 1-lamed dalet, [1], lamed hey. Lithographic printing. Seder Hagada bilshon HaKodesh veIm perush shel Marathi. [= Passover Haggadah in Hebrew with Marathi translation] Translated into Marathi and published by Haim Joseph Hallegua. (Chaim Yosef Chaligoa) of Cochin, India. Passover Haggadah for the Bene Israel community in India. This is the first printed Indian Haggadah, the first illustrated Indian Haggadah; the first Haggada in Marathi, and the first Haggadah according to the traditions of the Bene Israel community. Hebrew and Marathi on facing pages. The depiction of Moshe and Aharon on the title page is based on the illustration in the Amsterdam 1712 edition. With 13 vignettes depicting the 13 simanim, the stages, of the seder, "kadesh", "urchatz" etc. The final illustration displays the constituent ritual elements of the Seder plate, all represented in a distinctly Indian style. The Marathi speaking Jews of India known as the Bene Israel ("Children of Israel) had for millennia maintained the basic elements of Judaism (circumcision, dietary laws, the Sabbath, certain fasts and festivals, and the recitation of Shema Yisrael), despite their near-total isolation from the rest of world Jewry. When they began to settle in Bombay toward the end of the eighteenth century, their first encounter with normative Judaism occurred through contact with the Cochin Jews of the Malabar coast. Eager now to assimilate the many elements of postbiblical rabbinic Judaism that had been lost to them, they built their first synagogue in Bombay in 1796. The subsequent arrival in the city of Jews from Cochin and from the oriental countries enriched their opportunities for Jewish learning and stimulated a religious revival of which the Haggadah of 1846 is but one example.
