        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].

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.

        Syphilis" Or, "The Escutcheon Of Death"

      1850 - 19th century engraving. from the 1503 original. A print FULL of symbolism, hidden messages, disdain and warning. Only recently interpreted. Measures. 24 x 17 cm. Printed on hand-made laid paper with part watermark at edge in the paper. Trimmed but with all four borders and plate mark. The initials on the back in magenta ink of "AD", light corner crease to lower right corner. Very Good and clean. One of the newly re-engraved examples produced form the originals by the French printmaker Armand Durand. [1831-1905] *He made the images by making a new plate from the original with a photo mechanical process which was then finished by hand, and to all intents and purposes then creating a true engraving. Printed in limited numbers and faithfully capturing the detail in every way exactly from the original, but without damage or stains or age issues. With etching and acids used on a newly engraved plate These engraved works by Durand have long been sought after and are eminently more reasonable in price that the very rare originals of 1503 and has the right to be called a TRUE engraving. A copper plate was produced and printed exactly as an engraver would. A costly and meticulous method not attempted since. His examples are keenly sought after in their own right. [many examples have sold as originals and known to have been sold at major auction as originals and missed by many experts, in the past and even today] c1850-55 * The newly released story behind this image not known before the late 20th century or previously lost until later research revealed it again is the image is depicting; "The Wild Man" in his crude woodland fur/hair covered body who is kissing his new bride-to-be. He is believed to be giving her the kiss of death. The image indicates he is an unclean spirit or person. The skull a "memento mori" symbol with the helmet of Hermes/Mercury that represents the god who escorted people to Charon's boat to Hades across the Styx. The front of the shield invisible to the young bride, reveals him to be the surrogate of death. The angle of the skull matches exactly the angle of the woman's head. There is a swelling above the right ear on the skull a recognised occurrence to a brain/head one sees in 3rd stage (or madness induced stage) of Syphilis. The swelling or bump behind or above the left ear as is shown in the image as a crack in the skull. This was missed until the late 20th century but is a known symptom of a syphilitic death as a stage 3 sign. Who was the bride/woman? Well! This relates to his own life and family. She was Katherine Frey, daughter of Hans Frey, Durer's father-in-law. She was betrothed to Martin Zinner a man twice her age and more. He was a known syphilitic " a Wildman". He was showing scant respect for his wife's family and their pursuit of money.

Berg was part of the "Eulenberg Expedition", a Prussian diplomatic mission to Japan, China and Thailand (1859-1862), led by Friedrich Albrecht zu Eulenberg. The expedition sailed to Japan by way of Ceylon (Sri Lanka), where Berg drew the present view. The official account, partly edited by Berg, was published in seven volumes from 1864 to 1873 as Preussische Expedition nach Ost-Asien (1860-1862).In fine condition.
