        [On Horizon Ring: Improved Globe, Boston. / Manufactured By Gilman Joslin. Corrected To Date. Entered According to Act of Congress, in the Year 1852, in the Clerk's Office of the District Court of the Southern District of New York

      Boston, 1852. No Binding. Very Good. 16 inches in diameter; 39 inches total height. Victorian parlor dark-stained oak tripod stand with shaped supports above central baluster standard on cabriole legs ending in snake feet; excellent condition with a few minor repairs with original finish. Globe with calibrated nickel-plated hour circles at the north and south poles, mounted within a calibrated full nickel-plated meridian. Horizon ring decorated with an engraved paper calendar and zodiac, somewhat age-darkened and with wear. Globe with vibrant original wash coloring. Condition: Rich original varnish surface with a warm, quite bright patina; scattered minor toning, wear, abrasions, small cracks, all professionally restored, still excellent overall. A very handsome, American floor globe in its original Victorian parlor oak stand. Though originally issued in 1852, the globe was extensively updated by Gilman Joslin to suggest an actual date of issue in the 1870s. Notable in this regard, the globe shows the path of the transatlantic cable, first laid in 1858 and improved in 1866. Also, Nevada (admitted 1864), Nebraska (1867), and Colorado (1876) are all shown as states. Likewise, Australia shows updated political divisions: Queensland is separate from New South Wales, and both North Australia and Alexandra Land appear. Canadian provinces have been similarly updated. Very interesting is clear evidence on the globe of the penetration of the African interior by some of the great English explorers of the latter half of the 19th century. Both lakes Victoria, discovered 1858, and Albert, discovered 1864, are shown and named. Explorations along the interior parts of the Congo (also Zaire) River are also in evidence. Geographical regions and political divisions throughout are set off by color in tones of green, dark pink, light pink, blue, with some outlined in red. The globe was originally designed and issued by Charles Copley (fl. 1843-69), a map and globe publisher and engraver working in Brooklyn, New York. He is well known for his sea charts, published by Charles Copley and Sons in the mid 19th century. In 1852, he copyrighted this globe along with a16-inch celestial globe and received a gold medal for them at the Fair of the American Institute in New York in the same year. In the 1870s and 1880s, Copley's globes were revised and reissued by the prominent Boston globe maker, Gilman Joslin, and also by the Franklin group.

        LINDISFARNE GOSPELS WITH LEATHER COVER (DAS BUCH VON LINDISFARNE MIT LEDEREINBAND) Fine Facsimile Illuminated Edition of 8th Century

      Faksimile Verlag Luzern. New. Hardcover. <p>Lindisfarne Gospels, 8th Century - British Library, London, Cotton MS Nero D. Iv</p><p>The Victorian binding In 1852, Edward Maltby, bishop of Durham, donated a fortune to provide the manuscript with a binding in keeping with its dignity. This masterpiece of Victorian book art and goldsmith&#39;s work is faithfully reproduced for a small number of copies of the Lindisfarne Gospels facsimile edition. The frame of the two covers is made of silver. The decorative plates applied to the Victorian binding were formed of tin and silver-based alloys and partly covered with a fine layer of gold. The embroidery in the spine also forms part of the faithful replica of this binding</p><p>The bright colours of Celtic Art </p><p>A scriptorium on holy ground </p><p>There is a small spit of land on the coast of Northumbria called &#39;Holy Island&#39;, on which around 635 AD the monastery of Lindisfarne was founded. In the beginning it was still under the famous Abbey Iona, but then developed rapidly into a monastic centre in immediate proximity to the royal residence of the Northumbrian Kings. On the peninsula surrounded by stormy water, outstanding artists and writers found the necessary inner poise and inspiration to decorate the holy texts of the Gospels to make them true masterpieces of early mediaeval book production. </p><p>In honour of Saint Cuthbert </p><p>Already in his lifetime and still today, Cuthbert was and is a highly venerated saint. He lived as a hermit near the abbey before he became bishop of Lindisfarne, but soon returned to being a recluse. In two of his vitae, the famous scholar the Venerable Bede tells us of Cuthbert&#39;s working of wonders and idealistic life style. Only a few years after his death on March 20th 687, Cuthbert was canonised. His brothers had the wish to create a particularly splendid gospel in memory of the saint: the Lindisfarne Gospels. This pious wish gave rise to a unique masterpiece of book production. The monks venerated the gospel like a relic. Art historians and palaeographers see in its unfathomable wealth a foundation for further art development in the Occident. Linguists find in it the oldest translation from Latin into ancient English, and the curators of the British Library keep it as a national treasure. </p><p>The best-preserved Gospel Book of its time </p><p>Despite of its age of almost 1300 years, the Lindisfarne Gospels is in an extremely good state of preservation and world wide, it is even the only completely preserved evangeliary from the isles. On 259 folios in the format of 340 x 245 mm, made of the most carefully prepared vellum, it contains the Latin text of the Four Gospels according to the Vulgate version of St. Jerome. Each Gospel opens with an introductory explanation, a summary of chapters and a calendar containing the liturgical feast days. In addition, three prefaces, led by St. Jerome&#39;s letter to Pope Damasus, precede the text. A series of sumptuously decorated canon tables, for the first time stretching over 16 pages, solemnly opens up the book. </p><p>The manuscript and its masters </p><p>Monk Eadfrith, who was made bishop of Lindisfarne shortly after Cuthbert&#39;s canonisation, is not only to be thanked for the complete copy of the gospel text in a particularly beautiful insular majuscule, but also for the entire illumination of the book. Besides Eadfrith, an inscription in the Lindisfarne Gospels from the 10th century names his later successor Æthelwald as bookbinder, and Billfrith the hermit was the goldsmith who executed the ornamenting of the book&#39;s binding. Hence we know more about the production of this work than we would about most other mediaeval manuscripts. </p><p>Unique decoration: the carpet pages </p><p>Five extraordinary carpet pages present the whole range of insular ornaments in all their breathtaking wealth of form and colour. Thanks to their bright contours, the cruciforms skilfully inserted in the overall composition protrude clearly from the dense interlace in the background. </p><p>The Cross-carpet pages preceding each gospel and another one at the beginning of the book are combined with an equally richly ornamented incipit page. The large decorative initials stretch over the whole page, and the flowing ornaments and patterns with which they are filled down to the smallest detail blend with the following letters into elaborate monograms. Furthermore, over 200 fully coloured majuscules, partly outlined with red dots, structure the whole text. </p><p>A fusion of insular and Mediterranean art </p><p>In the canon tables and portraits of the evangelists in the Lindisfarne Gospels, influences of the Mediterranean and Celtic cultures blend into a unique masterpiece of insular book production. Thus the text of the evangeliary, which goes back to a model from the area around Naples, is represented in a majuscule script characteristic for the insular culture and decorated in the Hiberno-Saxon style. Besides Mediterranean influences, the portraits of the four evangelists also show typical insular traits. The fusion of the two art styles is, however, most impressively exemplified in the classical arcades of the canon tables bearing insular ornament and interlace. </p><p>Victorian book binding and goldsmith&#39;s work </p><p>During the reign of Henry VIII, the manuscript was robbed of its binding which, in its shining splendour, might have been reminiscent of a relic shrine. To benefit the dignity of the manuscript, in 1852 Bishop Maltby of Durham donated a precious new binding, the decorative ornaments of which are directly inspired by the insular formal vocabulary. </p><p>The facsimile edition </p><p>The facsimile edition consists of the facsimile volume and an expert commentary. The edition is limited to 980 copies world-wide. The manuscript covering 518 pages is reproduced true to the original and in all detail. For a maximum of 290 copies of the facsimile edition a faithful reproduction of the Victorian binding with all decorative stones will be made. The remaining copies will be available in the same neutral light leather binding that was used for the facsimile edition of the Book of Kells. This listing is for the leather bound edition. </p><p>The commentary volume </p><p>The expert commentary is comprised of two volumes in which Dr. Michelle Brown, curator of the Manuscript Department of the British Library, provides a detailed description of her latest findings about the codex and the new dates. Numerous detailed studies have ensured the complete reconstruction of the manuscript. </p><p>Documentation Kit </p><p>A documentation folder containing three full-sized leaves from the facsimile edition and an illustrated 16-page information brochure is available for information upon request. </p> .

        THE FRUITS OF AMERICA, CONTAINING RICHLY COLORED FIGURES, AND FULL DESCRIPTIONS OF THE CHOICEST VARIETIES CULTIVATED IN THE UNITED STATES

      New York & Boston. 1852-1856.. Two volumes. xii,100; iv,96pp. Frontispiece portrait in each volume plus a total of ninety-six chromolithographed plates. Quarto. Contemporary three- quarter calf and marbled boards, spines gilt, leather labels, t.e.g. Occasional light foxing. Overall a very good, tall set, with nice ample margins. The most beautiful American work on fruits produced in the 19th century, illustrated with ninety-six beautiful chromolithographed plates by the firm of William Sharp of Boston. Hovey was a nurseryman of Cambridge, Massachusetts, and a leading writer on horticultural topics. The book was originally issued in parts, from 1847 to 1856, and is considered complete in two volumes with ninety-six plates. The ninety- six varieties of fruit described include fifty-three pears, twenty apples, seven cherries, seven peaches, six plums, and three strawberries. Hovey describes the work in terms of national prestige: "There is a national pride, too, which I feel in the publication of a work like this; and that is, that the delicious fruits which have been produced in our own country, many of them surpassed by none of foreign growth...will be here beautifully depicted...." Daniel McGrath states: "In 1852, there was published simultaneously in Boston and New York the first use of chromolithography in an American book. In Hovey&#39;s THE FRUITS OF AMERICA there are 96 plates that in gentle gradations of tone put our chromolithographers in the same class with those of England." OAK SPRING POMONA 61. McGRATH, p.112.

        A Monograph of the Ramphastidae, or Family of Toucans

      London: Taylor and Francis for the author [1852]-1854. Folio. 52 hand-colored lithographs (one uncolored) after Edward Lear, John Gould, H.C. Richter and W. Hart. Contemporary green morocco gilt. All edges gilt. Provenance: from the library of the Wadsworth Athenaeum, the gift of J. Pierpont Morgan in memory of his father, with an engraved bookplate commemorating the bequest on the front paste-down of each volume. Second edition, revised and expanded, of Gould&#39;s first monograph, originally issued in three parts in 1833, 1834 and 1835. This new edition contains 18 new plates, not included on the first edition. Purchased by J. Pierpont Morgan, one of the most highly discriminating collectors in American history, from Henry Sotheran & Co. on June 15, 1899 (who bought the entire stock of Gould&#39;s works and copyrights, and who with the help of Sharpe completed Gould&#39;s unfinished works), and subsequently donated it to the Wadsworth Athenaeum in the name of his father. Initially employed as a taxidermist [he was known as the &#39;bird-stuffer&#39;] by the Zoological Society, Gould&#39;s fascination with birds began in the "late 1820s [when] a collection of birds from the Himalayan mountains arrived at the Society&#39;s museum and Gould conceived the idea of publishing a volume of imperial folio sized hand-coloured lithographs of the eighty species, with figures of a hundred birds (A Century of Birds Hitherto Unfigured from the Himalaya Mountains, 1830-32). Gould&#39;s friend and mentor N. A. Vigors supplied the text. Elizabeth Gould made the drawings and transferred them to the large lithographic stones. Having failed to find a publisher, Gould undertook to publish the work himself; it appeared in twenty monthly parts, four plates to a part, and was completed ahead of schedule. "With this volume Gould initiated a format of publishing that he was to continue for the next fifty years, although for future works he was to write his own text. Eventually fifty imperial folio volumes were published on the birds of the world, except Africa, and on the mammals of Australia-he always had a number of works in progress at the same time. Several smaller volumes, the majority not illustrated, were published, and he also presented more than 300 scientific papers. "His hand-coloured lithographic plates, more than 3300 in total, are called &#39;Gould plates&#39;. Although he did not paint the final illustrations, this description is largely correct: he was the collector (especially in Australia) or purchaser of the specimens, the taxonomist, the publisher, the agent, and the distributor of the parts or volumes. He never claimed he was the artist for these plates, but repeatedly wrote of the &#39;rough sketches&#39; he made from which, with reference to the specimens, his artists painted the finished drawings. The design and natural arrangement of the birds on the plates was due to the genius of John Gould, and a Gould plate has a distinctive beauty and quality. His wife was his first artist. She was followed by Edward Lear, Henry Constantine Richter, William Matthew Hart, and Joseph Wolf" (Gordon C. Sauer for DNB). AN EXCEPTIONALLY FINE SET. Anker 170; "Fine Bird Books" (1990) p. 101; Nissen 378; Sauer 19; Wood p. 365; Zimmer, p. 259.

        ZOTEI DAI NIHON KOKUGUN YOCHI ROTEI ZENZU]

      1852 - [MAP - JAPAN] SEKISUI Cho & SUZUKI Kien. [ZOTEI DAI NIHON KOKUGUN YOCHI ROTEI ZENZU]. Edo, Osaka & Kyoto. Zodiacal date of Kaei 5 [1852]. Identical to the copy illustrated online from the UC Berkeley collection, save that their copy is a standard one-piece folding map in covers. Ours is the same size when assembled (some 102 x 183 cm) but is bound in 12 separate folding sections, each identified on the cover by area, each approximately 35 x 46 cm. This would seem to have been done by the publisher for ease of use, a series of "pocket maps". They are all enclosed in a small clasped chitsu case, some 12 x 8 x 3 cm in size, with a mica-paper liner and a cloth exterior. There is a smaller size version (?), some 72 x 40, at 1852.1 in the first volume of Beans, referenced from Ramming, 1934, at #28 - obviously a misprint of some kind, as it would be hard to understand a smaller size recut map existing. In any case, a very interesting format and a lovely, detailed map in a "modern" style, employing degrees of latitude but printed in traditional color woodblock. Very good condition, impression and colors. An excellent example of Japanese cartography in transition. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Atlantic and Transatlantic Sketches, Afloat and Ashore

      Lon., 1852.. This British naval officer traveled through America in 1850 and 1851.  He gives good descriptions of Boston, New York (Brooklyn), and Washington, with chapters devoted to the dockyards in each place. Then to the midwest - Chicago, “Milwakie” and Green Bay - and surprisingly, “I discovered that we were approaching the famed Mormon settlement at Beaver island.” This occasions an eleven page discussion of Mormons and Mormonism, before he moves on to a “sporting excursion.” In the second volume he talks about American fisheries, then follows with a meditation on Captain Kidd, and what he thinks will be a successful discovery of Kidd’s treasure buried along the Hudson River. Finally, his “Miscellaneous Narratives” primarily having to do with his adventures in the Royal Navy. A fascinating and little-known piece of Americana. First edition. Sabin 43461.

        City of Toledo, Lucas Co. Ohio

      New York: Miller&#39;s Litho., 1852. Lithographed map, hand-coloured, sectioned and linen-backed. (Minor staining, tear repaired at an early date). Folds into publisher&#39;s brown cloth covers, covers blindstamped, upper cover titled in gilt, cloth ties, modern brown cloth chemise, all within brown morocco-backed cloth slipcase. 30 x 44 1/4 inches. The first printed map of Toledo, Ohio. This very rare cadastral map of Toledo shows the city at a critical point during its initial period of growth. Although the town was formed in 1833, development and settlement did not begin in earnest until after the completion of the Wabash and Erie Canal. In 1850, the population of Toledo was 3829; a decade later, population had increased nearly 260 percent to 13,768. The map, drawn on a large scale, shows the locations of each plot with ownership information, as well as the locations of specific buildings, roads, canals, railroad lines, etc. The map includes an inset view of Toledo Central High School at the lower left. An early owner has added several pencil annotations to this copy, including changes in ownership names and the route of the Toledo and St. Louis Railroad line. OCLC locates but three institutional holdings. Not in Phillips, A List of Maps of America.

        Autograph Letter, signed ("Edward Everett") as Secretary of State, to novelist John Pendleton Kennedy, then Secretary of the Navy

      n.p. 11 nov 1852 n.p., 11 nov 1852. (MELVILLE, HERMAN) 12mo. 2 pp. pen-and-ink on folded sheet. Fine. Parker, Herman Melville, Volume 1: 1819-1851, pp. 341-343 . Secretary of State Edward Everett writes to Secretary of the Navy John Pendleton Kennedy on Justice Lemuel Shaw's behalf to recommend his son John Oakes Shaw for a position in the Navy. Oakes Shaw (as he was known) was the eldest son from his father's second marriage, to Hope Savage. He became the brother-in-law of Herman Meville when the author married Justice Shaw's daughter, Elizabeth, from his first marriage. In fact Oakes had truly disgraced his family when in 1844 he married an "inopportunely preganant Caroline (Caro) Sarah Cobb." Reading in full, "Mr. John O. Shaw of Boston a son of Chief Justice [Lemuel] Shaw of Massachusetts is desirous of being appointed a pursor in the Navy. His father, equally respectable as a Magistrate & a citizen, desires me to speak a good word for him. I have no knowledge of the young man, but I am sure the Chief Justice would not recommend him, if he did not think him fully qualified for the place"
