        Autograph Letter Signed by William Rufus Taylor to Lieutenant James Melville Gilliss (1811-1865) U.S. Navy Congratulating Gilliss' on his Successful Expedition i.e., the U.S. Naval Astronomical Expedition to the Southern Hemisphere 1849-52 and thanking him for the "beautiful and interesting books" which were most likely copies of the results of the expedition which were published 1855-6].

      Newport 1856 - Newport R.I., April 17th 1856. Small Quarto (ca. 20 x 16 cm). One page. Brown ink on wove paper, verso blank. Letter with a minor crease of upper left corner, otherwise in near fine condition. The letter reads: "My Dear Sir, Upon my return to this place, ten days ago, after an absence of several months, I found here the beautiful and interesting books that you did me the favour to send me. Permit me to offer you my best thanks for this mark of remembrance. I shall read them with much interest. Often during your absence I thought of your labouring in that distant field, & I sincerely congratulate you upon the successful results of your expedition. Will you be pleased to present my respectful compliments to Mrs. Gilliss. Believe me sincere esteem. Yours very truly, Wm. Rufus Taylor." Gilliss a naval astronomer and founder of the United States Naval Observatory, in August 1848 "succeeded in obtaining $5,000 from Congress for a naval astronomical expedition to Chile. The chief purpose was to determine the solar parallax - and thus the scale of the solar system - by observations of Mars and Venus. From August 1849 until its return in November 1852, Gilliss headed this expedition, again making observations far beyond the original purposes of the expedition and leaving behind the foundation for the Chilean National Observatory" (ANBO). The author of the letter is most likely William Taylor (1821-1902), evangelist and missionary bishop of the Methodist Episcopal church and author of "California Life Illustrated" (pub. 1858) amongst several other books. "Taylor was one of the most energetic and influential missionary leaders in nineteenth-century Methodism. He was especially responsible for the spread of Methodism in Australia, India, South America, and Africa. Among his most notable accomplishments was his commitment to the principle of indigenous leadership and self-supporting churches" (ANBO).

        IV Livres de l'Imitation de Jésus-Christ qu'aucuns attribuent à Iessen d'autres à Gerson, & d'autres à Thomas, à Kempis, fidèlement traduits [1856 Curmer Chromolithograph Edition of The Imitation of Christ] - Volume I

      Curmer, 1856. Curmer. LEATHER BOUND. B00K36V4JM 1856 first edition L. Curmer (Paris) 7 1/2 x 11 inches tall x 2 1/4 inches thick in a sumptuous Curmer full black morocco binding, blind tooled borders and four raised cross pattee (cross formee) designs to both front and rear covers, five raised bands and blind stamped title to spine, all page edges crimson with gilt 'bee' design, purple moire endpapers, xii, 399, xiv. Rubbing, staining and edgewear to covers, with some fraying to the tips. Lower headband broken, but the binding is quite solid. Spotting to purple moire endpapers. Bookplate of prior owner Edouard Joltrain (1880-1930), a well-known Paris physician and researcher, to front free-endpaper. One of the (blank) front free-endpapers is partly detached at the top. A couple of instances of minor staining or smearing to a page. Otherwise, a very good copy of this very scarce issue, in a magnificent binding. Typography by J. Claye. References: Vicaire, Manuel de l'amateur IV, pp. 489-490; Brunet, Supp. I, p. 673. In 1858, Curmer issued a supplementary second volume to this edition, with material such as an account of the presumed authors of the book, and an essay on illuminated manuscripts. But this 1856 volume is complete unto itself. ~QQQ~ In French. This massive 1856 edition of Thomas Kempis' medieval Christian classic, 'The Imitation of Christ,' was something of a milestone in the use of chromolithography, a magnificent edition of the text from the acclaimed 1626 translation by Michel de Marillac (1560-1632). Each page has a border copied from an ancient manuscript, the facsimiles and engravings being collected from upwards of 360 manuscripts executed between the sixth and nineteenth centuries. Five full-page chromolithographs are introduced as frontispieces to the entire work and each of the four books of the Imitation. They are: (1) Louis XIV at prayers; (2) Anne of Brittany praying, accompanied by her Ladies of Honour; (3) The Education of the Blessed Virgin Mary; (4) The Annunciation; and (5) The Nativity. These last four, as well as the twelve pages of the preface, are copied from the Book of Hours of Anne of Brittany in the sixteenth century. The twelve pages forming the calendar of the months which commences this work are embellished in conformity with the custom of ornamenting with illuminations all Books of the Hours. They are taken from a Book of Hours in the Louvre collection. Pages 270 and 271 are printed on a plain gold ground with borders of the letter 'M' (Mary) and the motto 'Car Non' twined round broken pillars. The editor has produced an immense variety of examples and very aptly shown how 'primitive' the taste of early illuminators was. In addition to the instance just mentioned, a good example is at pages 276-277, where the text is printed in letters of gold on a bright red ground. These last are taken from a Sacramentary of Pope Gregory the Fourth at the beginning of the ninth century found in a convent near Constance and now preserved at Heidelberg. Contents of the volume: half-title, title, preface (pp. i-xii), text with a separate half-title and title (pp. 1-399), and a table of contents (pp. i-xiv). See Thomas Coomans & Jan de Maeyer, 'The revival of medieval illumination' at p. 116. 'The Imitation of Christ,' sometimes referred to as 'The Following of Christ' or 'The Christian Pattern,' is a Christian devotional book first composed in Latin circa 1418-1427. It is a handbook for spiritual life arising from the Devotio Moderna movement, of which presumed author Thomas Kempis was a member. The Imitation is perhaps the most widely read devotional work next to the Bible. . Very Good. 1856.

        Die Chorkapellenfenster der Votivkirche mit dem Leben Mariae in 38 Bildern componirt... ausgeführt in der Glasmalerei-Anstalt des C[arl] Geyling in Wien. Original-Aufnahmen von A. Voigt. Mit 20 auf starken Karton montierten Original-Photographien. Wien, o. J., [nach 1879]. 33,0 x 19,5 cm. 1 Bl. Blauer Leinwandband d. Zt. mit goldgeprägter Bordüre auf dem Vorderdeckel sowie Ganzgoldschnitt.

      . . Die Votivkirche in Wien ist zwischen 1856 u. 1879 von Heinrich von Ferstel errichtet worden u. zählt zu den bedeutendsten neogotischen Großkirchen. Neunzehn ihrer Glasfenster wurden nach Entwürfen des Malers Joseph Matthias von Trenkwald (1824-1897) von der bekannten, 1841 gegründeten Glasmalerei Carl Geyling ausgeführt. Insgesamt hat Geyling 62 Fenster geliefert, die jedoch inzwischen alle zerstört sind (vgl. AKL 52, S. 461). Insofern kommt diesem seltenen Werk Dokumentcharakter zu. - Carl Geyling (1814-1880) hatte seine Arbeit als Glasmaler mit Fenstern in Laxenburg begonnen, später stattete er viele bedeutende Bauwerke (Stephansdom, Wien; St. Epvre, Nancy; Stift Klosterneuburg u.a.) mit seinen Arbeiten aus. Die Werkstatt existiert noch heute. - Das erste Foto zeigt eine Gesamtansicht der neu errichteten Kirche, die anderen jeweils ein Doppelfenster. Die letzte der dort sichtbaren Datierungen stammt von 1879. - Über den Photographen A. Voigt ist mir nichts bekannt. Vgl. Wurzbach 47, S. 156ff. - Nicht bei Heidtmann u. im GV (nur ein Werk mit Holzschnitten über die Fenster aus dem Jahr 1893; Bd. 147, S. 29). - Kanten minimal berieben. Bindung aufgrund des schweren Kartons gelockert. Kartons vereinzelt leicht fleckig. Vorsatz u. Titel mit gekröntem Monogrammstempel "E A". Außerdem kleines Bibl.-Schild.
