        KALADLIT OKALLUKTUALLIAIT...[LEGENDS FROM GREENLAND...]

      Noungme [Godthaab, Greenland: Printed at the Inspectorate Press by L. M?r], 1859-1863.. Noungme [Godthaab, Greenland: Printed at the Inspectorate Press by L. Møller], 1859-1863.. Four volumes. [8],136,[2]pp. plus eight lithographed plates of music and twelve woodcuts; [8],111pp. plus eighteen woodcuts (twelve handcolored or printed color) and two folding maps; [3-6],136,[1]pp. plus twelve (of fourteen) lithographs at the end; [6],123pp. plus three woodcut plates and eight additional woodcuts in the text. First volume with colored titlepage vignette. Modern three-quarter polished calf and marbled boards, ornate gilt spines, a.e.g. Internally bright and clean. Gilt ownership stamp on front pastedown of each volume. Near fine, and an attractive set. This series of volumes of collected folk tales of Greenland, printed on the first real press to operate there and illustrated with remarkable woodcuts prepared by a native Greenland artist, must rank among the rarest and most extraordinary exotic imprints. Although ephemeral pieces had been printed on a small hand press in Greenland as early as 1793, the first real press was brought there in 1857 by the enthusiastic Danish Crown Inspector for Southern Greenland, Hinrich Rink. Rink began his career as an administrator based at the Moravian mission at Godthaab, on the southwest coast of Greenland. He used the press to produce both official notices and literary works. Rink was determined to collect legends and folk tales of Greenland natives and publish them, an ambition achieved in these four volumes, published over a five-year span. All of the letterpress was printed in a small, unheated workshop next to Rink's house, mostly executed by Lars Møller. Rink collected oral tales from throughout Greenland, although mainly in the southern area he administered. The remarkable oral tradition of the Eskimo, polluted by few outside influences, stretched back to the early Middle Ages. Many of the stories, especially in the first volume, describe the clashes between the Norse and the Eskimo. Rink recognized that some of the tales existed in the realm of pure myth, but that others represented recollections, passed from one generation to the next, of events of many centuries earlier. In the preface to the third volume Rink sets out his theories on the tales, laying the foundation for scholarship on the Greenland Eskimo. All of the text is given in both Greenlandic and Danish. The most amazing aspect of these books are the illustrations. In the first two volumes these were supplied by an Eskimo named Aron of Kangeq, a sealer and walrus hunter who lived at the Moravian mission at the small trading station of Kangeq. Aron was stricken with tuberculosis (which was epidemic in Greenland in that era) and confined to bed. Having heard of his raw artistic talent, Rink supplied him with "paper, coloured pencils, and the necessary tools for woodcutting." Thirty of these, about half of them handcolored, appear in the first two volumes. Aron illustrated the myths. As Oldendow says: "With his fertile imagination Aron drew men in violent motion...he depicts the legendary world of the Greenlanders with insight and ability...He makes us understand the vastness, loneliness, and weirdness of the majestic Greenland landscape and evokes the soul of the country as the ancient Eskimos have known it...." Indeed, Aron created pictures of remarkable power, all the more extraordinary for the circumstances of their production. In the third volume Lars Møller, the printer, supplied a series of illustrations of Greenland life created on the first lithographic press in Greenland. This set is notable for containing two folding maps not regularly issued with the set, but published to be distributed separately. Both were prepared by S. Kleinschmidt and are lithographic maps showing the fjords around Gothaab, with accompanying letterpress text. These maps are extremely rare in their own right. Needless to say, Rink's volumes were produced in small editions, and the attrition of the Greenland climate could not have aided their survival. Today they are of the greatest rarity. An imprint and ethnographic document of stellar importance. Knud Oldendow, THE SPREAD OF PRINTING...GREENLAND (Amsterdam, 1969), see especially pp.39-44. SABIN 36978 (Vols. 1-3).

        De Vogels van Nederland. Beschreven en afgebeeld.

      1859. Leiden, D. Noothoven van Goor, (1859-1861). 3 volumes (1 text- & 2 atlas-volumes). 8vo (170 x 130mm). pp. viii, 699, (1, errata), with 362 handcoloured lithographed plates. Contemporary half calf, spines with gilt lettering and lines, marbled sides. A fine copy of this beautifully produced work on the avi-fauna of the Netherlands, illustrated by the author. "A general work on the birds of Holland, with short descriptions, synonymy and an account of the distribution of each species... The figures are well-drawn and pleasing. The work was originally issued in 45 parts from 1854 to 1858 under the title 'Fauna van Nederlands vogels', by H. S. Schlegel and J.H. Herklots, being intended as part of a comprehensive work on the fauna of the country. The plan was discontinued before more than the birds were treated, and the original publisher, Trap, sold the entire edition to van Goor who issued it (according to Carus and Engelmann) in 1859 with a new title-page (as above) and with a preface by Schlegel dated December 24, 1858" (Zimmer p. 555). According to a letter of Mr. Trap in the possession of the Leyden Natural History Museum the birds were drawn by Schlegel, the landscapes however by G. J. Bos, an artist from Leyden. Hermann Schlegel was director of the Leyden Natural History Museum and famous ornithologist. He published some 163 publications of which about two thirds concern birds. Provenance: Jorge Casares with his armorial bookplate; Jan Allex de Roos with his bookplate and the signature of J.G. Verdoorn. Fine Bird Books, 105; Nissen IVB, 830; Zimmer II, 555..

        Mein Prozess gegen die Allgemeine Zeitung. Stenographischer Bericht, Dokumente und Erläuterungen. VIII, 236, 42 S., 1 Bl. Halbleinenbd d. Z. (Kanten berieben) mit handschriftl. Rückenschild.

      Genf, Selbstverlag, 1859.. . Außerordentlich seltene einzige Ausgabe, Schlüsselwerk über das Zerwürfnis zwischen Marx und Vogt, das durch eine Reihe von gegen Vogt gerichteten Artikeln in der Augsburger Allgemeinen Zeitung hervorgerufen worden war. Karl Vogt (1817-1895) war Abgeordneter im Vorparlament und in der deutschen Nationalversammlung, wo er zur äußersten Linken gehörte. Nach seiner Emigration lehrte er Geologie und Zoologie in Genf. Wilhelm Liebknecht (1826-1900), der Londoner Repräsentant der Augsburger Allgemeinen Zeitung, berichtete von einem Artikel in einem obskuren Emigrantenblatt, in dem Vogt als bezahlter Agent Napoleons III. denunziert wurde. Vogt war darüber so aufgebracht, dass er die Allgemeine Zeitung wegen Verleumdung und "Ehrenkränkung" verklagte. Das vorliegende Protokoll und die Dokumente veröffentlichte er vornehmlich wegen der entstellenden Berichterstattung in der Zeitung selbst. Vogt verdächtigte fälschlich Karl Marx, diesen Angriff auf Vogts Ehre zu unterstützen. Marx antwortete umgehend mit der berühmten polemischen Streitschrift 'Herr Vogt', um dessen Behauptungen zu entkräften und unterstellte diesem Intrige, Verläumdung und Betrug. "A small book appeared in Germany bearing the title 'Mein Prozess gegen die Allgemeine Zeitung'. It was Vogt's account of his lawsuit against the 'Allgemeine Zeitung' with a stenographic record of the court proceedings and whatever explanatory and contributory documents the author could lay his hands on. Vogt took care that the documents should be quoted with exemplary accuracy Here, finally, was the full evidence for Marx's treachery and duplicity as revealed in precise and objective testimony. There were no appeals to the gallery, only the documents. Vogt's presentation was masterly, and no one reading the book casually could imagine that it would be possible to rebut the evidence" (Payne, Marx, a biography, S. 318). - Papierbedingt etwas gebräunt, sonst sehr gutes Exemplar. - Stammhammer I 255.

        Arcana naturae ou recueil d'histoire naturelle.

      . Paris, Societe Entomologique de France, and J. B. Bailliere, 1859. Folio (43.9 x 31.7 cm). 132 pp., one allegorical engraved frontispiece, 13 engraved plates of which 11 nicely hand-coloured. Contemporary red morocco over marbled boards. Spine with five raised bands, compartments with gilt floral vignettes and gilt title. Marbled endpapers. Top edge speckled.* Rare and impressive publication in a very nice contemprary binding, with very broad margins, and fine illustrations mainly on Coleoptera, all drawn and painted by Nicolet and Lebrun. The beautifully engraved frontispiece shows a wonderful selection of wild animals. The work should perhaps be regarded as the first and only volume of a periodical, edited by the entomologist James Thomson (1828-1897), as it contains the following different subjects: the monographs of Thomson, "Essai synoptique sur la sous-tribu des Scarabaeitae vrais" et "Insectes de la region du Nil Blanc et deux curculionides" (Thomson wrote his original entomological publications in French); Nicolet's, "Memoire sur les amibes a corps nu"; Buquet on "Un enre nouveau des coleopteres"; Chevrolat's, "plusieurs especes de Rhopalophora", and "Essai monographique sur le genre Rhopalophora", one essay titled "Description d'une espece nouvelle d'oiseau" (Cyrtonix sallei from Mexico) by Jules Verreaux, with one beautiful hand-coloured engraving by Oudart, and several other papers, mainly on Coleoptera too. First plate margin and a few text page margins thumbed, otherwise a fine clean copy. Horn-Schenkling, 22056; Nissen ZBI, 4119.

The large charming frontispiece by F. Nicolet and engraved by Lebrun shows a woman studying nature amidst numerous exotic animals and a luxurious vegetation. 10 (8 coloured) of the plates show coleoptera and belong to the finest portrayal of these insects ever made, painted by Nicolet and engraved by Lebrun, delicately coloured by Mme German or Mme Ve Vaillant. James Thomson (1828-1897) was an American by birth who lived in France for the greater part of his life. He wrote a number of papers on Coleoptera and formed a large collection which was sold to Rene Oberthür. Nissen ZBI, 41119..
