        The Family Bible, With the Self-Interpreting and Explanatory Notes, and Marginal References of the Late Rev. John Brown, Minister of the Gospel, Haddington.

      London John Kendrick 1850 - Thick 4to. (25 x 18 x 8 cm), 1373pp., engraved frontispiece of 'Rebekah At The Well' and three further plates, engraved armorial title (lightly offset from tissue-guard), text in double-columns, a few minor spots to first few pages, near- contemporary crushed morocco, covers with broad gilt panels, spine richly gilt, raised bands, all edges gilt, an excellent example. A most imposing large format family bible in an excellent state of preservation. John Brown (1754-1832), minister and theologian was of humble origins and little formal education, and worked as a shepherd in his early years. It was perhaps this background that led him to produce a well annotated bible intended to make it accessible to ordinary men and women: "The Self-Interpreting Bible remained in print until the twentieth century, in much revised form. Brown transferred lists, tables, and other such aids from his dictionary. The Bible was a far more substantial work, which did not prevent its becoming, as Robert Burns bore out, as familiar in Presbyterian households as John Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress and Thomas Boston's Human Nature in its Fourfold State. Brown's text was furnished with a battery of cross-references, minor marginal notes, short introductions to each book, a summary of contents at the head of each chapter, 'reflections' on each chapter—in effect applying its message to readers—and explanatory footnotes. A lengthy introduction deals with the Bible's authority and inspiration, its interpretation, and biblical history from creation. All were intended, as the title made clear, to make the Bible accessible to the humblest reader, unlike much biblical scholarship today" (ODNB). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Veduta prospettica di Venezia ("panorama")

      Venezia: Giuseppe Kier, S.d. (ma circa 1850) - Litografia a due colori (nero su fondo grigio) di mm 1890 x 290. Foglio in perfette condizioni. L'immagine illustra, con veduta grandangolare di 200°, la città di Venezia dall'Isola di San Giorgio fino alla fine della Riva degli Schiavoni, con una ricchissima animazione di varie imbarcazione nel Bacino di San Marco. Questo tipo di veduta prospettica circolare riscosse una notevolissima fortuna all'epoca, e venne ricopiata da diversi autori. E' probabile che si tratti della veduta che doveva essere data in omaggio a qualche cliente particolare con l'opera "Venezia e le sue Lagune" stampato nel 1847 in occasione della nona Riunione degli Scienziati Italiani. 19mo secolo

        [HAWAII] Fragments d'un voyage autour du monde

      Moulins [France] : P.A. Desrosiers Imprimeur Editeur, [1850]. Oblong quarto, original illustrated full vellum (some marking and staining), pp [12], [12] leaves of lithographic plates in two tints; occasional very mild foxing, otherwise a clean, firmly bound and desirable copy of this seldom seen work. Not in Sabin; Forbes, 1766. 'This is a very rare album of handsome and romantic views ... ' Forbes. The French travelling artist Auguste Borget had been a pupil of Gudin, the official artist of the Marine Nationale. In the 1840s he undertook a voyage that led him to North America, Latin America, the Near East, the Far East and Oceania. This album contains lithographs after his own drawings made during this voyage, and includes a lithographed title page and twelve full-page plates designed and lithographed in two different tints by Borget himself. Each plate is accompanied by a page of letterpress describing the scene in the artist's words. The subjects are as follows: 1. Windmill on the banks of the Hudson River, opposite New York. 2. Notre Dame de Gloire, Rio de Janeiro. 3. A street in Buenos Aires. 4. Ravine in the Sierra de Cordova, South America. 5. A street in Lima, Peru. 6. Chileans on the plain of Santiago. 7. Watering place at Arequipa, Peru. 8. Street and market in Canton, China. 9. Honolulu waterfront, Oahu, Sandwich Islands. 10. Fishing craft on the Bolivian coast. 11. Bridge and village of Passig, 6 leagues from Manilla, Philippines. 12. Clive Street, Calcutta. Worthy of note is the fact that the explanatory leaf for plate 10 is present. Forbes, having only been able to view two copies of this work, both of which lacked this leaf, expressed doubt as to its existence: 'Neither copy appears ever to have had this sheet, and it may well be that it was never issued.' Yet here it is, making the copy we offer here all the more exceptional for its completeness. Unrecorded in Australian collections.

        Draft of Autograph Letter Signed to 1849 California Constitution..

      1850. Letter Regarding a California Trial for the 1849 Murder of an African-American Dickinson, [D]aniel S. [1800-1866)]. [Sherwood, Winfield S. (1817-1865)]. [Draft of Autograph Letter, Signed, to Winfield Scott Sherwood, Washington, DC, U.S. Senate Chamber, 1850]. Single 10-3/4" x 8" leaf, docketed on verso, some toning, vertical and horizontal fold lines, a few later annotations in tiny hand. Letter accompanied by biographical sketch clipped from a contemporary source and a lithograph portrait plate removed from an unidentified book. $500. * A retained draft of a letter by Daniel S. Dickinson, a U.S. Senator from New York, concerning the trial of Reuben Withers Jr. for the murder in California of an African-American named "Bones." Addressed to former New York politician Winfield S. Sherwood, a signer of the California Constitution of 1849, candidate for governor, and later district judge, the letter introduces Reuben Withers's brother, New Orleans banker Dunham Withers, and asks Sherwood to make sure Reuben receives a fair trial. Reuben Withers Sr. was president of the Bank of New York; his son Dunham was a representative to the southern states for the New York banking firm of Howland & Aspinwall. David Dunham Withers of New Orleans was a noted thoroughbred horseman and president of the racing organization that became the Jockey Club. Senator Daniel S. Dickinson previously served as lieutenant governor of New York and later as its 27th attorney general. Dickinson was a potential candidate in 1864 for vice president to Abraham Lincoln.

First and only edition, rarely seen on the market, of a highly acclaimed and richly illustrated collection of writings on aerial photography and photogrammetry, by a pioneer in the field. From the 1840s onward, Laussedat, an engineer in the French Army, had experimented with the possibilities provided by lenses for accurate mapping. With the help of a camera lucida, he produced a topographic map in 1850. Laussedat realised the possibilities which photography provided, but also knew that existing cameras were not suitable for mapping purposes "due to their narrow fields of view and lack of calibrated orientation. He therefore commissioned the Paris instrument maker Brunner to construct a camera to his specifications in 1859. ... The first topographic map was produced in 1861" (Hannavy). Six years later he presented the first map compiled from a stereographic aerial image.In the first volume of his Recherches , Laussedat gives an extensive description of the history and development of the science and instruments of surveying. In the second volume, which consists of two parts, he presents contemporary surveying. In the first part he describes the mathematical science of what he calls iconometry and metrophotography (modern photogrammetry).

Only recorded copy of the 1848 edition (preceded only by one recorded copy of 1846 edition) of Malby's 18 inch (45.5 cm) terrestrial globe, the largest he engraved and much rarer than his 12 inch globe. It shows small pieces of the Antarctic coast, noting sightings and explorations from 1831 to 1841. In Africa it shows Lake "Nyassi", discovered by Candido José da Costa Cardoso in 1846, but most of equatorial Africa and the Congo remain uncharted territory. "Oregon", officially made a United States territory in 1848, shows the boundary with "British America" agreed at the 1846 Oregon treaty. Alaska is still "Russian America. Texas is part of the United States, as are California and most of Arizona. The Revolution of 1848 has not yet affected the boundaries of the Austrian Empire. "Debai" (Dubai) is shown on the Gulf coast, only 15 years after the al-Maktoum dynasty took charge of it in 1833.The globe seems to be intended especially for navigational use, with not only a grid of parallels and meridians, but also the irregular curved lines indicating the variation of magnetic from geographic north ("isogones"). Malby seems to be the first and almost the only globe maker to show them.The horizon ring and globe have a dozen small cracks repaired and a few small gaps in the surface image, some repaired, but are otherwise in good condition. Extremely rare and lovely large globe.
