Anonimo
Tipografia Armena, 1850. In 4, cm 24,5 x 32, cc. (12). Frontespizio con decorazioni tipografiche a 4 colori e bordura tipografica a diversi colori alle pagine. Stampa solo al recto. Antica firma di possesso al frontespizio. Brossura coeva marmorizzata. Rarissimo catalogo tipografico della stamperia mechitarista armena di Venezia che presenta il saggio di 17 diversi caratteri orientali posseduti da questa storica officina veneziana. L'indicazione posta nella nota in testa al catalogo, '...esiste questa tipografia da quasi cento anni...', attesta come questo sia da datarsi intorno al 1880, se si vuole considerare il 1789 come data dell'insediamento nell'isola della tipografia mechitarista. Il realta' questa era nata molto tempo prima, infatti Mechitar gia' nel 1729 aveva acquistato macchine e caratteri della stamperia Voskan Vardapet di Amsterdam, impiantando la stamperia a Venezia. Esaminando inoltre le caratteristiche della pubblicazione, si ritiene pertanto piu' verosimile datare il catalogo intorno al 1750/1760 circa. I caratteri qui raccolti sono: armeno, greco, georgiano, cirilliano, russo, ebraico, arabo, persiano, turco, siriaco, caldaico, sanscrito, bengalese, birmano, malajalma, etiopico ed amarico. Ben nota e' la storia di questa comunita': l'isola venne concessa nel 1717 dalla Serenissima ad un gruppo di monaci armeni in fuga da Modona, invasa dai turchi. Questi, con a capo il monaco Mechitar, restaurarono gli edifici presenti sull'isola terminando i lavori nel 1740 e, nel 1789, installarono la tipografia che, nel corso di quasi due secoli, stampo' centina … [Click Below for Full Description]

Payne, John Howard; Benton, Thomas Hart
[New York, 1850. Folio, 15-1/2" x 12-3/4" sheet folded to 7-3/4" x 12-3/4". [1], [2 blank] [1] pp. Caption title [as issued]. The final page begins with caption title: FROM THE NEW YORK EVENING POST OF NOVEMBER 19, 1850. EXTRACT FROM SENATOR BENTON'S SPEECH, DELIVERED IN ST. LOUIS, SATURDAY EVENING, NOVEMBER 9TH... Light horizontal folds, Very Good plus. John Howard Payne [1791-1852] was an author, poet and actor-- the writer of "Home, Sweet Home"-- when President Tyler appointed him U.S. Consul to Tunis in 1842. Tyler's successor, James K. Polk, replaced him with Samuel D. Heap [1781-1853]. Payne tried without success to secure reappointment by Polk's successor, Zachary Taylor, whose sudden death brought Millard Fillmore to the presidency. "No sooner was he dead," says Senator Thomas Hart Benton, "than Howard Paine [sic] puts in again for Heap's place" with President Fillmore, who nominated him for the job. Benton [1782-1858] opposed Payne's bid, claiming that Payne, in his lust for office, had published false charges against Heap. Payne says the charges were "very grave and serious." He denies Benton's charges, defends the Fillmore administration against Benton's allegation of party proscription, and asserts his qualifications for the job. Finally confirmed, Payne died two years later at Tunis. [Brainard, Charles H.: JOHN HOWARD PAYNE: A BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH... Coolidge: 1884, pp.43-50.] Benton says that Heap, Payne's successor, had been the "successful protector of every American interest." Indeed, Payne had been appointed only by virtue of a "histrionic … [Click Below for Full Description]

Rev. Albert Barnes
London, England: George Routledge & Co. Copyright 1850-1855 Albert Barnes Complete New Testament Commentaries - 11 (I through XI) Volumes . Reverend Albert Barnes wrote a Preface to Volume I, Book of Matthew, page 5 that concludes with the sentence, "I commit it [the commentaries], therefore to the blessing of the God of the Bible, with the prayer that it may be one among many instruments of forming correct religious views, and promoting the practical love of God and man among the youth of this country." ALBERT BARNES, PHILADELPHIA. August 25th, 1832. This set of commentaries was published between 1850 and 1855. I remember when my Dad purchased these New Testament Commentaries in the 1960's. It was a huge cost for a family of seven on one income. These Barnes New Testament commentaries are now about 170 years old. They have been in my family about 55 of those 170 years. My Dad is now gone from this earth, and through his faith in Christ has an eternal home in heaven. These books were kept in a small bookcase in a very small entryway to our late 1950's house. They are in remarkably good condition for their age. There are some rub and scratch marks on particularly the book cover edges. The pages are incredibly well preserved. They are practically like new. There is a map of Palestine in Volume I with fold outs that is in pristine quality. The binding lettering is in gold, and the binding and corners of the books are leather. Please review the photographs for additional information on the eleven volume collection's condition. My father's book label was carefully placed on … [Click Below for Full Description]
