        Pocket Diary for 1862. Containing a Blank Space for Every Day in the Year, Cash Account, Memoranda, &c.: 1862 Civil War Union Soldier and Musician Uriah Johnson's Manuscript Diary: Pennsylvania Reserve Volunteer Corps, 6th Regiment Band [with] Two Ambrotypes, Four CDVs, and One Glass Plate Photographic Negative

      Flexible leather binding with leather closure over fore-edge, cloth protective bands designed to cover top and bottom page ridges affixed to rear endpaper, all edges gilt. A diary bought in Camp Pierpont, Virginia in 1862 by Uriah Johnson, a member of the band for the sixth regiment of the Pennsylvania Reserve Volunteer Corps. He enlisted at the age of 17, on August 27th, 1861 and served for three years in several different companies until his final discharge on June 13th, 1865, at which time he was a 2nd lieutenant. He was present at the Siege of Richmond and other important engagements. Also included: two ambrotypes (one of the diaries; another of him and a relative, possibly his brother); cartes-de-visite of Abraham Lincoln, Uriah Johnson's grandfather (labeled in pencil on reverse), Mollie (labeled in pencil on front edge), and Uriah Johnson (this last mounted on a piece of cardstock); and a glass plate photographic negative. One ambrotype is housed in a wooden case with a clasp, the other is in one half of a similar case (the other half is not present).Manuscript diaries from the American Civil War are scarce, and each shines a unique light on the conflict. This example provides a charmingly innocent account of events, which underscores how young and inexperienced many of the soldiers fighting in the American Civil War were. There are also detailed accounts of day-to-day activities. The first passage displays the sort of optimism one would expect from a young man who volunteered: 'In Camp Pierpont Virginia. A beautiful day nice and warm. Camp very quiet more so than usual. Still considerable talk about the Battle of Drainsville is heard wherever we got that was the first Union victory on the Potomac, and the Boys all feel proud of it...' In the second week of January are five consecutive entries in which Johnson explains that soldiers are expecting their pay, which finally arrived on January 11, 1862: 'Received our pay $42.50 for two months service November and December.' He was quick to put it to use: 'Bought lumber to build winter quarters of a farmer paid him 2 cents a foot for boards' (Jan. 13). Other passages provide an immediacy not found in many accounts of the war: 'We are living without tents and expecting an attack every minute...' (March 11), and Johnson relays news as it is received by the camp: 'We have cheering news that Mannassas is evacuated and our forces now have possesion of the strongest Rebel hold'.One memoranda page provides a firsthand account of the Battle of Drainsville on December 20, 1862: 'The Battle of Drainsville was fought Dec the 20th 1862. Our loss was eight killed while that of the rebels is suposed as near as can be asertained one hundred. The number of the killed in our Regiment was three and fourteen wounded two severely the remaining slightly.' Diarist's name on front and rear endpapers, entries on daily diary pages, nearly all written in from January 1, 1862 to June 28, 1862, with notes on two other daily pages (seemingly chosen at random), a couple memoranda pages, and the 'summary of cash account' page, manuscript record of service (in the author's hand, so likely something he wrote for personal reference) laid in. A book curse is written on the front free endpaper: 'Steal not this book my honest friend for fear the gallows may be your end.' 'Published Annually for the Trade', 1862. Good/No Jacket.

        Trigonometrical Survey of a part of Mesopotamia. From Hillah to the Ruins of Niffer with the rivers Euphrates and Tigris. London, J. & C. Walker, 1862.

      1862. 101 x 71 cm. Constant ratio linear horizontal scale, ca. 1:150,000. Signed by Collingwood. Impressive, early, large-scale map of central Iraq, showing the area between Al Hillah (100 km south of Baghdad) to the ruins of the ancient Sumerian city of Nippur. Indicates sand hills, canals, old river beds, tracks, cultivated areas. Includes inset plans and views of Tel Ibrahim, Zibbleyeh, Nejmi, Niffer, and the Niffer Mounds. - Some paper defects and edge damage restored. Rare; copies are known in no more than two public collections (Bodleian; British Library). Personal copy of the cartographer William Collingwood, signed by himself as well as by Cdr. W. B. Selby, R.I.N. - Selby began his distinguished surveying career in 1837 when, as a midshipman, he embarked on the expedition first to lay navigation buoys in the mouths of the Indus River and then to chart some coastal areas in the Horn of Africa. By 1846 he was back working off the mouth of the Indus, having made his reputation in Mesopotamia (in 1840-41), and thereafter achieved considerable acclaim for his numerous other surveys, including those during the military expedition to Persia in 1856, before returning to England at the end of 1862. He was succeeded as Surveyor of Mesopotamia by his protégé, Lt. William Collingwood (a distant cousin of the Admiral), who had already done much valuable work in the region, including the large-scale, though surreptitious, mapping of Baghdad in 1855, described by him as follows: "The survey of the city of Baghdad was completed entirely by myself and under very unpleasant restrictions [...] The Turkish Government were not to know anything about it [...] and I was left to survey the town as best I could, and under such difficulties that at times I had to note bearings and paces all over my white shirt, where best I could get the pencil at the time [...]". During this same expedition, Collingwood also surveyed the Shatt-ul-Arab, the city of Bussorah (also by stealth) and much of the country between the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers, and he was undoubtedly one of the most gifted and productive R.I.N. surveyors of his day.

        Victorian Seaweed Album

      New York: J.C. Riker, 1862. Victorian album showcasing over twenty preserved and pressed seaweed and algae specimens. The collection and classification of botanical samples was considered an edifying pursuit for women in the Victorian era, and the study of natural history served as an acceptable access point for women interested in scientific subjects. Seaweed specimens were particularly popular, creating a lively market for instructional books like Shirley Hibberd's The Seaweed Collector (1872). The album also contains a laid-in sheet of botanical samples bearing four notable personal annotations. The first specimen is captioned: "Taken from Aunt Lucy Lee's grave in Ridgefield Oct 3d 1859." Two others, collected on the same date, are identified as growing on the graves of "Uncle Aaron Lee" and "Charles Bradley Lee," while the final specimen is captioned: "Taken from my sister's grave, the same date Jane E Smith who died at the early age of two years." Genealogical records indicate that a Lucy Smith in Ridgefield, CT, married one Aaron Lee, a captain in the Revolutionary War. A compelling artifact of Victorian popular science and filial piety. Scrapbook album measuring 6 x 7.5 inches, contemporary full red sheep, elaborate gilt urn motif stamped in center of boards, triple-ruled border and elaborate cornerpieces in blind, spine ornamented in gilt floral pattern, all edges gilt, renewed endpapers. Green pictorial printed title page with hand-colored embossed flower, four pages embossed with images of flowers (one hand-colored), 15 specimens of seaweed and algae on tipped-in cards, eight additional seaweed specimens lying loose between pages, two samples of pressed flowers tipped in, six pressed leaves laid in, some evidence of lost samples. Two instances of penciled-in poems partially erased, pen and blue pencil ribbon sketch. Laid in is a single page featuring four annotated botanical samples from family gravesites, each hand-sewn onto the paper. Offsetting caused by specimens, rectangular portion of one leaf excised, expert restoration to binding.

Alcune firme di possesso del tempo. Una dedica in data 1922 all'occhietto del quarto vol. Restauri alla cuffia inferiore del primo vol. Qualche fioritura normale. Bell'esemplare. Edizione profusamente illustrata (rara a reperirsi completa, come nel nostro esemplare, di tutte le sue tavole) della classica traduzione dei testi biblici del Martini, fittamente annotata dallo stesso. Il testo è disposto su due colonne e, accanto al volgarizzamento martiniano, figura il testo biblico della Vulgata. Il Martini (Prato, 1720-Firenze, 1809), formatosi al Collegio Cicognini della sua città natale (lo stesso in cui studierà, oltre un secolo dopo, D'Annunzio), laureato in lettere a Pisa, preside della congregazione della basilica torinese di Superga su designazione di Carlo Emanuele III, abate di San Giacomo in Bessa, impresse la sua celebre traduzione della Bibbia su incarico del Cardinal Vittorio Amedeo delle Lanze, amico di Benedetto XIV, e la completò nel 1771, sotto il pontificato di Pio VI, che lo premiò, dieci anni dopo, con la nomina ad Arcivescovo di Firenze. Compose anche numerose opere pastorali. La versione martiniana fu condotta sulla base del testo greco dei Settanta; per i raffronti con le lingue semitiche originarie egli si valse della consulenza del rabbino di Firenze, Levi. Cfr. V. Guasti, Storia anedottica dei volgarizzamenti dei due Testamenti fatto dall'abate A.M. in Rassegna Nazionale, XXV, 1885, pp. 235-282. Plurilingue

        Les Martyrs ridicules Avec une préface de Charles Baudelaire

      Paris, Poulet-Malassis, 1862 In-12, demi-chagrin havane, dos à nerfs, tête dorée, non rogné, couv. conservées (Champs), XII pp. (préface), 350 pp. (y compris faux-titre et titre). Édition originale du premier livre de Léon Cladel et de la préface de douze pages très denses de Charles Baudelaire. Exemplaire enrichi du contrat de publication à compte d'auteur des Martyrs Ridicules, daté du 5 juin 1861, monté sur onglet. Ce document manuscrit, rédigé à l'encre par Poulet Malassis, signé par Léon Cladel et Poulet Malassis et de Broise, détaille le prix payé par l'auteur (500 francs réglables en deux fois), le tirage (500 exemplaires, dont 250 ex. remis brochés à l'auteur) et l'engagement pris par Cladel de régler les frais de livraison de ses exemplaires et les corrections d'auteur auxquelles son ouvrage aurait donné lieu sur présentation d'épreuves. Ex-libris d'Alfred Morin, gravé à l'eau-forte par Vallon. Bel exemplaire, pâle mouillure sur la couverture. Selon le témoignage de l'auteur, rapporté par sa fille Judith Cladel, Baudelaire aida à mettre en forme le roman, qui manquait de style et de syntaxe : "Huit mois durant, il daigna me pétrir de ses mains savantes et me rendre ductile et modéré, mois si dur de pâte et si violemment excessif..." (Maître & Disciple, Paris, 1951, cité par G. Oberlé dans Auguste Poulet-Malassis un imprimeur sur le Parnasse, 1996).

        Fertilisation of Orchids

      John Murray, London 1862 - 1st ed. vi, 365, [1] pp. plus 32- page publisher's advertisements dated December, 1861. Illus., folding plate. Orig. pictorial ribbed cloth. Expertly rebacked with orig. spine laid down. See my other unrestored copy. Freeman 800. Asa Gray is quoted in the Life and Letters of Charles Darwin as saying, "if the orchid-book (with a few trifling omissions) had appeared before the 'Origin' the author would have been canonised rather than anathematised by the natural theologians," and notes that a review in the Literary Churchman found only one fault "that Mr. Darwin's expression of admiration at the contrivances in orchids is too indirect a way of saying, 'O Lord, how mainifold are Thy works.'" This work is concerend with figuring detailing the relationships between sexual structures of orchids and the insects which fertilize them, and attributes their evolution to natural selection. First edition. Cover faded to brown. Rather than describe the condition in detail here, please ask for a full set of photos. We are selling an entire first and early edition collection of Darwin and other Victorian naturalist. In some cases we have several copies of the same titles in similar condtion, including presentation copies. Please ask for a complete catalogue. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        3 eigenh. Briefe mit U. ("JBurckhardt"). Basel, 1862, 1864 und 1870.

      1862. Zusammen (3+1+3½ =) 7½ SS. auf 6 (= 2 Doppel-)Blatt. 4to und (qu.)-gr.-8vo. Zwei Briefe mit eh. Adresse. An den Kunsthistoriker Otto Mündler (1856-1888), u. a. über den schleppenden Absatz seines neuen Buches (1862), mit einer Empfehlung des Kunsthändlers Land (1864) und über Mündlers Beitrag zu Burckhardts "Cicerone" (1870): "[...] Mit meinem eigenen Buch verhält es sich leider nicht so wie Freund Lübke glaubt. Es ist eine traurige Thatsache, daß wir in Summe keine 200 Ex[em]p[lare] abgesetzt haben. Man kauft in Deutschland so gar nicht mehr. Ich hatte den mir eng befreundeten Verleger, der vom (reichhonorirten) Cicerone her noch nicht auf seinen Kosten ist, umsonst gewarnt, nicht über 500 drucken zu lassen; er hat 750 gedruckt u. behält nun das Surplus in Ballen im Magazin. Auf diese Erfahrung hin habe ich mich entschlossen, von der 'Kunst der Renaissance' nur ein Geripp auszuarbeiten, etwa 20 Bogen, und bei diesem Anlaß nur diejenigen Resultate mitzutheilen, die mir neu scheinen [...]" (5. I. 1862). - "[...] Gestern erhielt ich [...] die 'Beiträge zum Cicerone'. Das Vorwort, worin Sie meiner Arbeit (viel zu sehr im Guten) gedenken, haben [!] mich gerührt u. beschämt, und als ich mich nun in das Heft hineinlas und der enormen von mir einst in Verwegenheit geschossenen Böcke inne wurde, fand ich es für eine wahre Pflicht, mich darob gegen Sie bestmöglich zu entschuldigen. Der Cicerone wurde nämlich unternommen nicht nur von einer äußerst ungenügenden ästhetischen Basis aus, sondern auch unter sehr zweifelhaften Umständen und mit geringen Mitteln, in einem Augenblick da ich meine hiesige Anstellung verloren hatte und nicht recht wußte, was aus mir werden sollte. Er hat mir dann allerdings treulich geholfen und mir die Professur am eidg. Politechnicum zu Zürich eingetragen, sodaß ich ihm immer ein ehrendes Andenken schuldig bin [...]". - Der Br. v. 5. I. 1862 mit einem kleinen Ausschnitt auf Bl. 2 (Textverlust in drei Zeilen).

        Deux lettres autographes signées à Théodore Wyzema au sujet de ses derniers ouvrages

      1 page, 180 x 102 mm et 4 pages, 200 x 155 mm. RARES LETTRES AUTOGRAPHES adressées au critique d'art d'origine polonaise, pro- moteur du mouvement symboliste Teodor de Wyzewa (1862-1917). Ecrites durant l'été 1887, elles précèdent de quelques semaines le décès du poète. Laforgue, sans argent, tente de faire éditer son dernier ouvrage en prose : Berlin. Il rencontre Gustave de Malherbe, directeur des éditions Quantin grâce aux recomman- dations de Théodore Wyzema. "Mercredi, Mon bien cher ami, J'ai été ce matin chez Quantin. De Malherbe m'a reçu on ne peut plus aimablement. (Je vous dois encore cela). Il me donnera une réponse lundi. Figurez-vous que je n'ai rien reçu de Dujardin. Je n'y comprends rien. Il n'imagine pas les attentes de... Votre ami Jules Laforgue". "Vendredi, Mon cher ami,Vraiment vous m'avez donné le devoir de vous adresser de pareilles lettres. C'est sur votre recommandation que De Malheurve m'a dit à ma remise de mon manuscrit : " Le livre ne paraîtra qu'en octobre. Mais matériellement pour vous se sera comme si il paraissait aujourd'hui". Là-dessus, il m'a renvoyé à lundi. Le lundi il était content mais il fallait voir Mr May, et il m'a renvoyé à mercredi ; mercredi, je reçois une lettre me ren- voyant à aujourd'hui (une lettre) et aujourd'hui je n'ai rien reçu. Et aujourd'hui me tombe sur la tête tout ce qui nous tombe sur la tête un quinze de trimestre. Voici ce que je voulais vous dire. Il m'est impossible de désespérer de mon livre chez Quantin après les promesses de De Malherbe, j'aurai de l'argent de ce côté-là. Or vous avez en Rzewsky une relation facile à la détente. Eh bien ce n'est pas un emprunt que je voudrais faire auprès de lui mais un emprunt qui serait effacé dès que j'aurais touché chez De Malherbes, ou - en cas de malheur - j'espérais chez Lemerre. (Ce serait 380 à peu près dont j'aurais besoin) (...) Au revoir mon véritable et rare ami. Il y a des mois que songeant, impotent, ce que je pourrais faire pour vous et je n'ai encore trouvé que cette chose palote que je n'ai jamais depuis le temps pensé à vous dire : Vous dédier les nouvelles que Dujardin éditera. Cette proposition aboutit à une absence de paquet. Au revoir votre Jules Laforgue." TRES BEL ENSEMBLE.

Poème avec prologue et épilogue par Pierre Dupont. Préface et notice bibliographique par Paul Lacroix (Bibliophile Jacob). Avec la Ballade de Béranger mise en musique par Ernest Doré. 2e édition.

"Les grandes compositions de Gustave DORE, forment une suite saisissante, fantastique et sinistre, où le dessinateur, entièrement dominé par son sujet, évoque la vision d'un monde étrange, chaotique et sombre, au milieu duquel le Juif Errant marche sans cesse, n'offrant aucune prise ni aux éléments ni à la mort. On ne saurait trop louer la maîtrise développée ici par les 3 graveurs, Rouget, Jahyer et Gauchard, habiles et heureux interprètes de DORE, dont ils ont éxécuté, sur bois, les dessins avec une vigueur de tons qu'il est difficile de surpasser..."

        Manuscript Journal from a Civil War Soldier

      Good. Leather. A manuscript journal from an Iowa infantry soldier, with details of the soldier's life in 1862-1863. Sueded and stamped leather boards have heavily rubbed corners and edges. Black title label with "Docket" on it. Binding tight. The first entry is dated October 15, 1860, from the original owner, apparently the secretary of a Marshall Cavalry, with a few names mentioned. After a few pages an 1866 entry signed by F. L. Keith of Company H, 13th Iowa Volunteer Infantry, indicates that the journal was confiscated at Waterford, Mississippi and used by him "for the purpose of transcribing into it a journal of the history and exploits of the 13th Iowa during the Great Rebellion. This will be transcribed from small pocket-diaries kept by myself while in the army," with further introductory notes on the regiment. The army journal entries are on 74 pages dating from April 23, 1862 to April 30, 1863. After those are various journal entries from the late 1860s to the 1880s, probably all by the same author. A Frederick L. Keith listed as a fourth sergeant in the 13th Regiment, Iowa Infantry, matches Civil War rosters. Three pages contain descriptions of the Second Battle of Corinth. "Oct. 3d: Today the battle of Corinth commenced. The fighting commenced on the Memphis R. R. In the morn. EOur Co and Co. "G: were ordered across some abattis or fallen timer to skirmish but the rebs making a fland movement on the right we were ordered back and were soon sent out again right in full view of two columns rebs ...The balls flew like hail four of our Co were wounded about 10 of Co G were killed and wounded....Oct. 4th...The rebs were entirely cut to pieces. They fought well and took the fort but could not hold itand were driven out with great slaughter. About 2 o'clock they sent in a flag of truce to bury their deadwhich was only a ruse to allow them to retreat...." Most of the journal entries describe details such as the weather, camps and marches, the sending and receiving of letters to and from Keith's wife, and a miserable Christmas laid up in camp with diarrhea. Many names of other soldiers are given, and the last entry records being mustered for pay. The later entries after the Civil War are journal entries as well as account and crop records for Keith, who was a farmer. ; 8 1/2" x 1 1/4" x 7" .

Intended to Contain Descriptions and Figures of all North American Birds Not Given by Former American Authors, and a General Synopsis of North American Ornithology. viii, 298 plus 2 pp ads. Illustrated with 50 hand-coloured lithographs. 4to., 268 x 175 mm, bound in publisher's brown cloth. Philadelphia: J.B. Lippincott, 1862. |~||~||~||~| First Edition in book form. The work was originally published in ten parts between 1852 and 1855. It was intended to complement the octavo edition of Audubon's celebrated work "The Birds of America, from Drawings Made in the United States and their Territories." The annexation of Texas and the addition of California and New Mexico to the United States had led to increased exploration and research in the South West. "At first the Audubons were receptive...however, Cassin wanted shared credit on the title page and a free hand in correcting the errors of nomenclature of the elder Audubon, a touchy point with the sons. In the end, Cassin went on his own, although clearly following the Audubon format and also using J.T. Bowen as lithographer" (Reese). Reese, Stamped with a National Character 42. Anker 92.

        Ein Aufenthalt bei dem Groß-Scherif von Mekka. Leipzig, Bernhard Schlicke, 1862.

      1862. Small 8vo? in 8s (17.5 x 12 cm). Set in fraktur types with the title and headings in textura types. [5], [1 blank], 391, [1] pp. Later boards covered with shell-marbled paper, maroon spine label, pink end-papers. First and only German edition of Didier's colourful account of his journey from Suez to Ta'if to meet the Sharif of Mecca, Abd al-Mutalib ibn Ghalib (ca. 1794-1862 or later), first published in French in 1857 as Séjour chez le Grand-Chérif de la Mekke. Didier (1805-1864) met Sir Richard Burton in Cairo months after his famous 1853 visit to Mecca, and briefly travelled with him (Burton mentions him in his own account of his pilgrimages to Mecca and Medina). He departed on his the present voyage from Suez in 1854, travelling through the Sinai to the Red Sea and Jeddah on the way to Ta'if. At this time the region was largely under Ottoman control and in 1856 they ousted Abd al-Mutalib, who had the support of the Bedouins, and returned his predecessor and rival Muhammed bin Adb al-Muin ibn Aun to power. Didier gives detailed accounts of the ruling families and the events of the period, and his book served as a basis for Karl May's German adventure story for children, In Mekka (1923).- Foxed throughout, but otherwise in good condition. An account of travels on the Arabian peninsula that inspired adventure stories. WorldCat (5 copies); cf. Blackmer 484 note (French ed.).

        Corpo diplomatico portuguez. Contendo os actos e relações politicas e diplomaticas de Portugal com as diversas potencias do mundo, desde o seculo XVI até os nossos dias. Lisbon, Typographia da Academia Real das Sciencias / Imprensa Nacional, 1862-1959.

      1862. Small folio (224 x 284 mm). 15 vols. (final vol. in 2 parts), uniformly bound in half tan sheep over decorated boards, spines gilt with raised bands in five compartments, decorated endleaves. Some original printed wrappers bound within. All edges sprinkled. First editions; all that was published of this massive project. The "Corpo diplomatico" deals with the relations between Portugal and the Roman Curia, presenting a chronologically arranged sequence of documents of the 16th and 17th centuries. The Portuguese Empire was the first global empire in history, and the sources here edited - frequently citing the significant Portuguese royal title of "King of Portugal and the Algarves, on this side of the sea, and on the other side in Africa, lord of Guinea and of the naval and commercial conquest of Ethiopia, Arabia, Persia, and India" - provide substantial information on the principal world issues and conflicts during that vast Empire's first era. Much of the diplomatic correspondence concerns conflicts between the worlds of Christianity and Islam: in one letter, King Manuel describes his attacks on and victories over the local Muslim rulers ("the Saracens are thrown into confusion"; "our men attacked and burned maritime towns belonging to the Saracens, situated on the mainland"; cf. vol. I, p. 116f.), and in a Papal Breve, Pius V praises the strengthening of the Maltese fortifications after the Great Siege of Malta ("erit opportunissimum adversus Turcas, et praedones Afros totius christiani populi propugnaculum", vol. X, p. 226). Many volumes, but VII through XI in particular, contain material on the Arabian Gulf (Basra, Bahrain, Muscat, and Ormuz): "Ormuz, que he cabeça de todo o Reino de Ormuz [...] e na dita Cidade de Ormuz fortaleza minha com muita gente de christâos portuguezes" (vol. II, p. 374); "o vejo, que se se faz guerra ao Turco e Vossa Alteza quer, sem despesa de quasi nada, o Egipto e Suria e Arabia seraom vossos" (vol. III, p. 243); "e asy mandou que se reteuessem todas as naos, que viessem da India a Judá e a Meca" (p. 397); "se entende hum muito boom socedimento pella armada de Vossa Alteza na ilha de Banrrehem [= Bahrain] de que se deve ter muito contentamento assi pella reputaçâo" (vol. VIII, p. 372); "e depois em Ormuz poderia saber o acontesimento de Baharem" (p. 468); "toda a costa de Melinde ate Moçambique e assi da outra de Adem ate Ormuz quererâo por alguma d aquellas tentar ardis [...] A Baçora vai tambem muita somma de especiaria" (vol. IX, p. 110f.); "O negocio he grave e de muita consideraçâo e em ser muita a somma da speciaria que vem pello mar Roxo ao Cayro e pello de Ormuz a Bacora" (p. 135); "Andre Ribeiro que com Joâo de Lisboa foi cativo em Mazcate" (p. 175); "creo tambem que elles lá ou nos quá nâo sabemps o que passa em Bacora porque se n aquella ilha creserem galees sem hirem do mar Roxo, como as que ali vierâo quando de caminho tomarâo Mascate nâo sey por onde viessem as outras" (p. 305); "pera o resgate dos portugueses que estam cativos no Cayro, e forom presos em Mazcate" (p. 382; cf. p. 485); etc. - Furthermore, there are reports on the Portuguese in Suez, Africa (including Angola, Mozambique, Guiné, Sofala, Morocco, Arguin, Cabo Verde, Congo, São Thomé, Ethiopia), Brazil (Bahia, Maranhão, Rio de Janeiro, Pernambuco), the Azores, India (in nearly every volume, including Goa, Cochin, Damão, Malabar), and the Far East (Malacca and the Moluccas, with a few sections on Macau, China, and Japan scattered in vols. X-XIV). The work also provides a wealth of detail about the Inquisition and "cristãos novos" (both discussed in almost every volume), the Jesuits (vols. V-XV), the Council of Trent (vols. VI-X), Protestant activity (particularly in England), the Restauração, the Dutch in Brazil, the wars with the Turks on land and sea, and the activities of D. Sebastião and St. Charles Borromeu, the Order of Malta, and Cardinal Mazarin. Among the most notable texts are Ambassador Martinho's 1533 letter describing the forces defending Christianity in India and Africa, Bishop Lourenço Pires de Tavora's account of monasteries in India in 1561, and 25 letters written by P. Antonio Vieira from 1671 to 1675 (vol. XIV). - Marginal spotting in vol. XV, part 1; last 5 leaves remargined. Very discreet library markings on rear pastedown of each volume. Overall a very good set. Innocêncio IX, 95. OCLC 55783574.

        The Oriental Album: Twenty illustrations in oil colors of the people and scenery of Turkey, with an explanatory and descriptive text. New York, Anson D. F. Randolph, 1862.

      1862. Folio. Tinted lithographic additional title by Charles Parsons, printed by Endicott & Co., 20 chromolithographic plates by Parsons after van Lennep, all printed by Endicott & Co. of New York. Expertly bound to style in half dark green morocco over period patterned cloth covered boards, spine lettered and decorated in gilt. A rare and important color-plate book: one of the relatively few American costume books, and certainly the best such created in 19th-century America. This is a notable and unusual instance of the taste for the Ottoman or "Turkish" which manifested itself in the furniture of the period but seldom in books. In terms of American color-plate books, this is one of the only large projects from the 1860s, when the Civil War seems to have curtailed production of such lavish enterprises. "The one really big chromolithographic book of this decade [...] the art is simple, but [Charles] Parson's hand is obvious in the good lithography, and Endicott's printing is well done for its time" (McGrath). "Endicott achieved a rich variety of color which demonstrated the increased technical ability of American printers in the medium" (Reese). Henry Van Lennep was born in Smyrna, the son of European merchants. Educated, on the advice of American missionaries, in the United States, he returned to Turkey as a missionary in 1840, and spent most of the next twenty years in various parts of the Ottoman Empire. Returning to the United States in 1861, he turned his superb original drawings of Middle Eastern life into the Oriental Album. The plates include two scenes of Jewish life in the Ottoman Empire. Included are plates of "A Turkish Effendi", "Armenian Lady (at home)", "Turkish and Armenian Ladies (abroad)", "Turkish Scribe", "Turkish Lady of Rank (at home)", "Turkish Cavass (police officer)", "Turkish Lady (unveiled)", "Armenian Piper", "Armenian Ladies (at home)", "Armenian Marriage Procession", "Armenian Bride", "Albanian Guard", "Armenian Peasant Woman", "Bagdad Merchant (travelling)", "Jewish Marriage", "Jewish Merchant", "Gypsy Fortune Telling", "Bandit Chief", "Circassian Warrior", "Druse Girl." Bennett, p.108. Blackmer Catalogue 1715. Blackmer Sale 1500. DAB XIX, 200. McGrath, pp. 38, 115, 162. Reese, Stamped with a National Character 97. Atabey 1274.
