        Indøvelse i Christendom. Af Anti-Climacus. Nr. I. II. III. Udgivet af S. Kierkegaard, [Training in Christianity. By Anti-Climacus. Nr. I. II. III. Published by S. Kierkegaard].

      Kjøbenhavn [Copenhagen], 1850. 8vo. Cont. full cardboard-binding of black glitted paper w. single gilt lines and gilt title to spine, all edges gilt (the typical gift-binding). On vellum-paper. A bit of scratching to boards, and a bit of wear to extremities, otherwise very fine. Excellent restaurations to front hinge, barely noticable; perhpas re-abcked, but so well-done that it is difficult to determine; new end-papers, creating an extra free front one. Fly-leaf w. presentation probably washed, and presentation thus a bit weak. Minor brownspotting to first couple of leaves, otherwise very nice and clean. (4), 277 pp.. First edition, presentation-copy, of Kierkegaard's important "Training in Christianity", written under the pseudonym of Anti-Climacus, which constitutes one of the most Kierkegaardian works, in which he treats his central problematic: How to become a Christian in Christendom. The work also constitutes a fierce attack on the Danish church.The original handwritten presentation is written on the front free end-paper, as usual, and is "Til/ højvelbaarne/ Hr. Etatsraad Heiberg/ R. af D./ Med Ærbødighed/ fra/ Udgiveren." [For the honourable/Mr. Councillor of State Heiberg/ R. of D. (i.e. Knight of Dannebrog)/ With reverence/ from/ the publisher (because he mentions himself as the publisher, and not the author on the title-page, he also signs his presentation as the publisher, -the real author according to Kierkegaard is Anti-Climacus)]. Johan Ludvig Heiberg (1791-1860) was the main cultural figure of the 19th century in Denmark. He hugely influenced all of Danish culture within this period, and he must be considered the patron of Copenhagen's literati. He was very influential as a thinker in general, and he changed Danish philosophy seminally by introducing Hegel to the Northern country. As thus there is no doubt as to the rôle that Heiberg directly or indirectly played in the life of Kierkegaard, and this is a presentation-copy that links together two of the giants of Danish culture. Kierkegaard viewed himself as somewhat of an outsider, and it was of great importance to him to try and enter the famous literary and cultural circle of Heiberg. This work points to the essence of Kierkegaard's religious-philosophical writings, and he here describes the personal suffering that comes with being a Christian. Christ is considered the rôlemodel, and true Christendom consists in following him. Thus, the Christian will also suffer for his faith, though no man shall become a martyr for the truth. Kierkegaard thus also distinguishes sharply between the established, triumphant church and the true, struggling one, which comes to constitute the essence of his attack on the Danish Church.Søren Kierkegaard, the father of existentialism, became of seminal importance to not only Danish thought, but worldwide, as one of the most important thinkers of his time. He seminally influenced the fields of philosophy, theology, psychology and literature, and not only did he found what is known as existentialism and attempt to renew Christian faith with Christendom, with his influential and controversial critiques of Hegel and the German romantics, he also changed the course of philosophy of the second half of the 19th century.

The twenty four uniformly excellent plates include twelve topographical views after Barbot of Egyptian sights and cities from Philae to Cairo, ancient and modern, all peopled and bustling with life. Alexandre Bida's contribution consists of twelve beautifully-observed character studies of the people he encountered in the region: an Albanian, a Copt, dancers, ladies, a donkey driver, a groom, etc. Bida, studied under Eugene Delacroix, and travelled extensively through Egypt, Greece, Turkey, Lebanon and Palestine. "E. Barbot" is Prosper Barbot (1798-1878), a pupil of Jules Coignet and Louis Watelet, who made two journeys to Egypt in 1844 and 1846 travelling from Cairo south across the desert.

Originaludgaven af Ørsteds naturfilosofiske hovedværk med dedikation fra forfatteren til "Herr Professor og Dr i Theologien/ Scharling/ venskabeligst/ fra/ Forfatteren." Under dedikationen er tilføjet et håndskrevet citat fra et brev af Sophie Ørsted (f. Oehlensläger) (fra Adam Oehlenschlägers Erindringer) i samtidig hånd (sandsynligvis Scahrlings). Dedikationen er til professor Carl Emil Scharling (1803-77), teolog, som var bror til Ørsteds datters (Karen) mand. First edition of Oersted's main work in natural philosophy. Presentation-copy with the inscription "Herr Professor og Dr i Theologien/ Scharling/ venskabeligst/ fra/ Forfatteren." (Mr. Professor and Doctor of Theology/ Scharling/ with the kindest regards/ The Author"). Underneath the presentation-inscription a handwritten quotation from a letter from Sophie Oersted (born Oehlenschläger) (from Adam Oehlenschläger's Memoires) in cont. hand (probably that of Scharling). The presentation-inscription is for professor Carl Emil Scharling (1803-77), theologist, who was the brother of Oersted's daughter's (Karen) husband.Oersted is universally known for his discovery of Electro-Magnetism in 1820. Afterwards he went on to write a number of important philosophical works on natural philosophy and empiricism, of which "Aanden i Naturen" he himself considered his main work. The work is found printed on 2 sorts of paper, common- and vellum-paper. This copy is on vellum-paper. Both H.C. Andersen and Søren Kierkegaard admit to having been influenced by the writings of Oersted. "He was an enthusiastic follower of the "Naturphilosophie" school in Germany, whose main object was the unification of physical forces, thus producing a monistic theory of the universe. It was to further this purpose that Oersted sought in actual phenomena the electro-magnetic identity of which he had already convinced himself on metaphysical grounds" (Percy H. Muir in Printing and The Mind of Man)

        Buchanan endorses an $11,000 Corcoran & Riggs check to his niece Harriet Lane’s uncle, her late father’s brother

      Partly Printed Check endorsed “Pay the within to the / order of John N. Lane / James Buchanan” on verso, 8” x 3.25” visible. Ornately framed to 12” x 7.5”. Washington, February 7, 1850. Completed in manuscript. “Pay to Hon. James Buchanan or order Eleven Thousand #/100 Dollars. To Bank of America New York.” Possibly signed “Corcoran” by William W. Corcoran and “Riggs” by George W. Riggs. An opening on verso displays the endorsements of Buchanan, “John N. Lane,” and two others. Fine condition. Harriet Lane (1830-1903) was the daughter of James Buchanan’s sister Jane Ann Buchanan Lane (1793-1839) and Virginia merchant Elliott Tole Lane (1784-1840). When her father died a year after her mother, her uncle James (“Nunc”) became her guardian. She later served as First Lady during her uncle’s presidency. John N. Lane was another uncle, her father’s brother. In 1840, William Wilson Corcoran (1798-1888) and George Washington Riggs (1813-1881) formed Corcoran & Riggs which offered checking and depositing services. In 1844, the U.S. government assigned Corcoran & Riggs to be the only federal depository in Washington. When Corcoran retired in 1854, the bank changed its name to Riggs & Co. A patron of the arts, Corcoran gave his Washington gallery building and much of his art collection to the government; it was opened to the public in 1874 as the Corcoran Gallery.
