Just ask! 1857 1st ed David Livingstone Missionary Travels Illustrated AFRICA Map Angola "If you have men who will only come if they know there is a good road, I don't want them. I want men who will come if there is no road at all." ― David Livingstone An incredibly rare first edition of David Livingstone's "Missionary Travels." In this book Livingstone describes his travel and work as a missionary to the indigenous people in Central and South Africa. Through the mid-19th-century, South Africa was complete unknown to Europeans, so Livingstone's mission brought light to more than just spreading the gospel. The work deals with customs, languages, animal and plant biology, geology, topography, and mineralogy. "The geographical results of his journeys were of supreme importance and made it possible to fill in great stretches of the maps of Central Africa which hitherto had been blank" (PMM 341). Livingstone discovered the Zambesi River and Victoria Falls (which he named), parts of Angola, and Mozambique; met with and observed the Hottentot. This book includes the large folding map of Southern Africa, with his journey outlined. He was also able to discover some of the most devastating instances of slave trade, which propelled his abolitionist ideals.

HALSTED, George F.
Sydney, 1857. Oil painting on papered boards, 31.3 x 61 cms. in an early gilt frame, signed lower right F. Halsted. The artist George F. Halsted worked in Sydney from the 1850s to the 1880s. It is thought that he may have been the son of Captain George A. Halstead RN whose sketchbook of English views is in the State Library of NSW. In 1873 Halsted is known to have exhibited with the Academy of Arts and the Agricultural Society of NSW, and in 1880 at the first exhibition of the Art Society of NSW. The Sydney Morning Herald wrote that '.his landscape paintings, bathed in either bright or highly atmospheric romantic light and treated in a detailed stylistic manner, continued to be admired for their rich natural beauty'. The Art Gallery of NSW had purchased a painting by him prior to 1883 and the Gallery cataloguers labelled him as 'an accurate and careful draughtsman whose views of coast scenery have been much admired'. It is this attention to detail that is particularly evident in this picture: Halsted's view includes the newly installed telegraph poles in New South Head Road Vaucluse but before the accompanying wires have been put in place. The first Australian electric telegraph lines were built to connect the South Head signal station with the city of Sydney, seen here in the distance. Prior to the opening of the electric line on 26 January 1858 a system of semaphore flags was used to relay information on the arrival of ships entering The Heads. In this finely painted panorama looking from Vaucluse towards Mosman, what is now prized harbourside living was in 1857 verdant a … [Click Below for Full Description]

NEW YORK: See photos, 1857. Binding falling off water marks but legible and no mold inside some problem w binding, it's very very rare but pages holding together well enough to read THEY ARE BINDED SPARATELY BY SOME SORT OF SINUE OR STRINGS. i really shouldn't be selling this historical document to our president of the United States (but a grave injustice occurred to me being a patriot and having my dwelling ruined by police thinking I was someone else now refusing to pay for it and I must now come up with large sums of money) This book could be worth at auction over $50,000 so I have no idea how to price such a piece I have read 3/4 of it and it's basically a detailed account of war in India by the Bristish exhorting President Buchanan to please join in the effort which as history tells us he wisely did not. Now this book is completely original in readable condition with rare hand printed lithograph as and everything was hand pressed onto each page. I'm going to price this high because I am running out of antiques to sell to support myself being crippled and widowed and w children. THIS manuscript goes into painstaking detailed accounts of the lives mostly of the British soldiers and their families war but also in daily life in India at the time. its historically accurate and just astounding things ive never heard of. it could make movies its just a really good read but also the fact the British wrote it in hopes the president of the United States might join the war effort is very interesting in and of itself as serious history went down between the authors and the Presid … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Boston]: The Massachusetts Colonization Society, 1857. First Edition. Very Good. First American edition. (Reprinted from the London edition of 1856.) Original saddlestitched wraps. 31, [1, note] pp. Very Good with small chip at head, light tidemark to upper left corner of margin, wraps a little soiled and edges slightly worn. This pamphlet is a prominent African-American minister's commemoration of the founding of the state of Liberia. He began as an abolitionist lecturer whose sermons took on an increasingly pan-African tone. In 1853 he moved to Liberia and attempted to move the country towards Christianity and American-style democracy; he would be forced to return to the USA in 1873, where he was a pastor and activist until his death in 1898. While his earlier pan-Africanism found few adherents, his influence on W.E.B. Du Bois, Marcus Garvey, and Paul Laurence Dunbar would be profound.[Attributes: First Edition]

LIVINGSTONE, David
London: Murray, 1857. 1857 1st ed David Livingstone Missionary Travels Illustrated AFRICA Map Angola"If you have men who will only come if they know there is a good road, I don't want them. I want men who will come if there is no road at all." ― David Livingstone An incredibly rare first edition of David Livingstone's "Missionary Travels." In this book Livingstone describes his travel and work as a missionary to the indigenous people in Central and South Africa. Through the mid-19th-century, South Africa was complete unknown to Europeans, so Livingstone's mission brought light to more than just spreading the gospel. The work deals with customs, languages, animal and plant biology, geology, topography, and mineralogy. "The geographical results of his journeys were of supreme importance and made it possible to fill in great stretches of the maps of Central Africa which hitherto had been blank" (PMM 341). Livingstone discovered the Zambesi River and Victoria Falls (which he named), parts of Angola, and Mozambique; met with and observed the Hottentot. This book includes the large folding map of Southern Africa, with his journey outlined. He was also able to discover some of the most devastating instances of slave trade, which propelled his abolitionist ideals.Item number: #9451Price: $950LIVINGSTONE, DavidMissionary travels and researches in South Africa: including a sketch of sixteen years' residence in the interior of Africa, and a journey from the Cape of Good Hope to Loanda on the west coast, thence across the continent, down the River Zambesi, to the eastern oceanLondon: … [Click Below for Full Description]

Cardigan stated 'every one of the Staff Officer's Statements with regard to himself are slanderous, and totally without any truth or foundation'. The legal action subsequently failed. Calthorpe discusses the accusations and the law suit to the preface for this edition in great detail whilst defending the right for him to present his own truth. This defence of his writing is only present to this very scarce second edition. An uncommon work, which was not originally intended for publication, as it is formed from a series of letters written by Calthorpe throughout his military expedition. Calthorpe notes to the original preface that this work is 'merely a series of letters addressed to friends in England'.

New York: Derby & Jackson, 1857. First edition. 406 pp. 8vo. Publisher's blue cloth, covers decoratively stamped in blind, spine titled in gilt. Soiling to fore-edge of front cover, spine ends worn, scattered foxing to text. First edition. 406 pp. 8vo. First edition of this history of American finance by George Francis Train. Train (1829-1904) was born in Boston, received an education in Massachusetts, and found work in a relative's shipping office in Boston. He went on to manage the company's offices in Liverpool and Melbourne, Australia, before embarking on a tour of Asia, the Middle East, and Europe. Train became a proponent of streetcar lines in England and railroads in the American West, involved himself in numerous public issues, including the Fenian cause, and wrote several books. Train was a major supporter of women's rights, and provided financial backing for Susan B. Anthony's newspaper, THE REVOLUTION. Train was a candidate for the American presidency in 1872, joined the French Communists (only to be expelled from France in 1870), and championed Victoria Woodhull. His greatest impact on the public imagination stemmed from his around-the-world trip of 1870, which he accomplished in eighty days, serving as the inspiration for the Jules Verne novel. Train traveled around the world at least two more times, and became increasingly eccentric in his old age.

The Annual Oration Before the Common Council and the Citizens of Monrovia, Liberia - July 26, 1855: Being the Day of National Independence by Rev. Alexander Crummell First American edition of an influential African American minister's pan-African pamphlet [Boston]: The Massachusetts Colonization Society, 1857. Original saddlestitched wraps. 31, [1, note] pp. First American edition. Reprinted from the London edition of 1856. Very Good with small chip at head, light tidemark to upper left corner of margin, wraps a little soiled and edges slightly worn. This pamphlet is a prominent African-American minister's commemoration of the founding of the state of Liberia. He began as an abolitionist lecturer whose sermons took on an increasingly pan-African tone. In 1853 he moved to Liberia and attempted to move the country towards Christianity and American-style democracy; he would be forced to return to the USA in 1873, where he was a pastor and activist until his death in 1898. While his earlier pan-Africanism found few adherents, his influence on W.E.B. Du Bois, Marcus Garvey, and Paul Laurence Dunbar would be profound. [Attributes: First Edition]
