South Australian Parliamentary Paper Number 134 of 1858. In the two-page report, Douglas, the Harbor Master of South Australia, publicly expresses his 'admiration of the wonderful correctness in all essential points of Capt. Flinders's survey; and would observe, that no means at our disposal at present are sufficiently reliable to correct the various leading features as determined by that intrepid navigator'. Douglas also begs 'respectfully to request that one hundred copies of the chart may be lithographed'; in the absence of any other publication details, we present his request for what it's worth.

        Sefer Kitve Ha-Kodesh: Torah Nevi'im U-Khetuvim 'Im Ha'atakah 'Ashkenazit

      Adalbert Della Torre, Vienna 1858 - Quarto. Complete 2 volume set. 508 leaves, (4) leaves, 377 leaves. Exquisite contemporary red leather with gold-pressed illustration on the covers and spine of an ark and the Ten Commandments. Old Testament-Tanach with the original Hebrew and Judeo-German translation in parallel columns. Both sides use a square Hebrew print and contain nikkudot vowels. The Judeo-German is not Moses Mendelssohn's well-known Biur translation, but a transliteration of the famous German translation of the Bible produced by Martin Luther. This edition of the Old Testament was published as a missionary tool by the British and Foreign Bible Society and designed for use by Central European Jews. The books of the Old Testament are organized mostly according to the Jewish tripartite arrangement of Pentateuch, Prophets and Hagiography, although the 5 megillot are moved to the end of vol. 1, following Kings II. Additionally, in between the Pentateuch and Prophets sections, are 4 leaves with a detailed listing of the weekly and special Haftorah readings. While there are no obvious indications that this Bible was intended to promote conversion, the title-pages contain the verse from Proverbs 8:35, "for whoever finds me finds life and receives favor from the Lord," which has overt Christological meaning. Binding in fine condition. Slight foxing to pages. Overall in good+ condition. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Red Sweet Springs, Monroe Country VA

      Edward Beyer, Richmond, Virginia 1858 - Tinted lithograph, 'Taken from Nature by Ed. Beyer', printed by W. Loeillot in Berlin. An exemplary print from one of the greatest American view books: `a major outstanding item' (Bennett) Edward Beyer was a German artist who visited the United States in the early 1850's. He chose to concentrate his work on Virginia and Kentucky, spending three years in Virginia working on the original drawings for this book. Although the title notes that the copyright was registered by Beyer in the District of Virginia, the book was actually produced in Germany, with the plates being prepared in Dresden or Berlin. The superb tinted lithograph views were generally printed in black with, generally, two further colours. 'This Watering Place is located in Montgomery County, on the Eastern slope of the Alleghanies, near their summit, in the Southwestern part of the State. It has been built up within the last two years, and promises to be the most agreeable place in the mountains. It is of easy access, on a branch road running from the Virginia and Tennessee Road to the Springs, eight miles from Alleghany Springs, and five miles from the Yellow Sulphur Springs' ( Description of the Album of Virginia. Illustrated Richmond, 1857). Deak writes of Beyer, "He was taken by the beauty of the Virginia landscape, particularly by the elegant settings of some of the region's watering places.Virginians responded warmly to Beyer's enterprise and often gave him advance access to architectural plans when these could be of help to him. There was probably no Virginia county that Beyer left unvisited in his zeal to present what is, in fact, an affectionate family album of an entire state." Deak praises Beyer's "delicate and precise style" and "characteristic refinement of proportion.". Cf. Bennett p.10; cf. Deak Picturing America 721; cf. Howes B413 ("b"); cf. Sabin 5125.

        Lezgins.

      - 1863 and 1867 1858 - Pen and watercolour on paper (30.5 x 21 cm), highlighted in gum arabic, pasted on contemporary card and mounted (55 x 37.5 cm); two small marginal tears to watercolour with one partly repaired. Here offered with an engraving after the original drawing (37.8 x 28 cm), 1867, mounted; repaired tear in upper margin. An original drawing by the German born artist showing a group of six Lezgins crossing the Caucasian mountains. The image was made famous by Lev Dmitriev-Kavkazskiy, whose engraving after the original was awarded a large silver medal by the Imperial Academy of Arts in 1873. Theodor Horschelt (1829–1871) probably made the sketch between 1858 and 1863 when he fought on the Russian side in the Caucasus War, having volunteered to join the staff of General Baryatinskiy. Soon after his arrival to the Caucasus in 1858, the artist joined an expedition against the Lezgins. The following year, he was part of a military campaign in Chechnya and participated in an attack on the headquarters of Imam Shamil. For his bravery, Horschelt was honoured with the Grand Cross Star of the Order of Saint Stanislaus and a medal of the Order of St. Anna. It was for drawings of this period that Horschelt was elected to the Russian Academy of Fine Arts. The drawing comes from a private collection of Sarkis Boghossian and was published in his monumental work "Armenian Iconography" that gathers prints and drawings on the subject. Boghossian's biography resembles a thriller novel. Born in 1921 in a small Armenian village in today's Turkey, Boghossian was taken to Marseille at the age of six by his family that fled famine and oppression. Passionate about art, poetry and Armenian culture, he chose a career of bookseller. In 1967 Boghossian opened a rare bookshop in Paris, "Le XIXe siècle", specialising in rare books and engravings related to Armenia. In autumn 1998 the French booksellers' community woke up to shocking news that Boghossian had been found dead in his Parisian flat, tortured and murdered, with a number of valuable books missing from the apartment. Police quickly traced the murderer, who, however, hardly resembled the idea one may have of an assassin. He was a French bookseller of Turkish origin and a renowned scholar with a PhD from Sorbonne specialising in Ottoman and Armenian history. He was apparently in dispute with Boghossian over a number of rare books that the latter kept as a guarantee against a cash loan. The bookseller was arrested and subsequently sentenced to 19 years in prison just when he was due to give a lecture at a conference in Nice titled "The Armenian merchants in the Mediterranean in the eighteenth century". Sarkis Boghossian "Armenian Iconography I" reproduces No. 651 and 652 p.468 - Paris, 1987; Razitta Gadzhikhanova, Dagestanskiy kostium (Epokha, Makhachkala, 2010), p. 151.

        Lewis's Great Establishments, The "Great Eastern " (with) Trade card advertising I K Brunel’s steamship Great Eastern

      b/w printing on silk, 19 x 19 1/2 inches. The "Great Eastern" was an iron sail and steam ship designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel, and built by J. Scott Russell & Co. In 1858, at the time of her launching, she was the largest ship ever built. She made her first passage to America in 1859, a cruise that was marred by an explosion aboard. She had a checkered career thereafter. Having proved herself impossible to run profitably as a passenger liner, she was converted to a cable-laying ship and set down the first successful trans Atlantic cable. She ended her career as a floating music hall and advertisement for Lewis' department stores. The “Great Eastern” card measures approximately 6 3/4 x 4 1/2 inches and features images of the ship under weigh and a longitudinal section, with specifics given in some detail. It is lithographed on coated stock with color highlights by Meyer & Co. of New York, and copyrighted by Wagstaff & Bro., 1859, in the “Southern District of New York.” The card was undoubtedly meant to coincide with publicity drummed up the the "Great Eastern's" maiden voyage to New York. Silk and card, both in very good condition

        Album of Virginia; or, illustration of the old dominion

      [Richmond], Virginia, Edward Beyer [but printed by Rau & Son of Dresden and W.Loeillot of Berlin] 1858 - (16 5/8 x 24 ¾ inches). Lithographed throughout. Tinted title with five integral vignettes, 40 tinted plates after Beyer by Rau & Son (18) or W.Loeillot (22). Original deep purple half morocco, upper cloth cover with blind-stamped border surrounding large central title block in gilt `Album of Virginia;/ or,/ Illustration. Of the/ Old Dominion. By/ Edward Beyer', lower cover blocked in blind, the flat spine divided into six compartments by horizontal gilt roll (some discolouration to upper cover, extremities bumped). Modern tan cloth box. One of the foremost American view books created in the nineteenth century. "This is a major outstanding item, the rarity of which is by no means fully appreciated" - Bennett Edward Beyer was a German artist who visited the United States in the early 1850's. He chose to concentrate his work on Virginia and Kentucky, spending three years in Virginia working on the original drawings for this book. Although the titlepage gives Richmond as a place of printing, the book was actually produced in Germany, with the plates being prepared in Dresden and the letterpress in Berlin. The superb tinted lithograph views include beautiful natural scenes, Harper's Ferry, White Sulphur Springs, railroad bridges and tunnels (e.g Highbridge near Farmville), views in Weyer's Cave, and scenes at many of the fashionable resorts which nestled amid the mountains of Southwest Virginia. A broad variety of places in Virginia are shown. Deak writes of Beyer, "He was taken by the beauty of the Virginia landscape, particularly by the elegant settings of some of the region's watering places.Virginians responded warmly to Beyer's enterprise and often gave him advance access to architectural plans when these could be of help to him. There was probably no Virginia county that Beyer left unvisited in his zeal to present what is, in fact, an affectionate family album of an entire state." Deak praises Beyer's "delicate and precise style" and "characteristic refinement of proportion." Bennett p.10; Deak Picturing America 721; Howes B413 ("b"); Sabin 5125. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Stuttgart, 10. IV. 1858. - 2¼ SS. auf Doppelblatt. 8vo. Schöner Brief an einen "Musikdirector" über einen geplanten Auftritt seiner Tochter Marie (aus zweiter Ehe mit Clementine Fechner): "Ich beantworte Ihren lieben Brief vom 8t[en] mit der Meldung daß wir d. 12 in Carlsruhe eintreffen werden, um wahrscheinlich in den nächsten Tagen darauf an Ihrem kunstsinnigen Hof zu spielen. Ueber ein zu gebendes Concert citire ich das Kapitel über reisende Virtuosen in meinem Buch 'Clavier u Gesang'. Wenn Wunderkinder, festgefressene sogenannte Virtuosen, Armen- u Bettelconcerte Zeit, Geld u Publikum in den Saal hineinpressen, so muß der reisende Künstler bescheiden wieder abziehen. Meine Marie hat hier mit sehr großem Beifall u unter der einstimmigen Anerkennung gespielt daß sie vollkommen ihrer Schwester ebenbürtig sei u sie in manchen Stücken noch übertreffe, einen Ruf, den sie schon von Dresden mitbrachte. Wenn dieß nicht wäre, so bin ich doch nun wohl alt genug, um da nicht hin zu reisen, wo Clara eben concertirt hat, da die Welt ja überall gleich mit dem häßlichen u unmotivirten Vergleichen bei der Hand ist [.]".
