        Sonnenuntergang an der asiatischen. [Asian Sunset]

      [Canton] 1863 - Watercolour on paper, 210 x 300 mm; signed in pencil; mounted. Charming and atmospheric watercolour of the Guangzhou area, depciting the Pearl River at sundown, looking towards old Canton, with the Chigang Pagoda and the Temple of the Six Banyan Trees seen in the distance. The German painter Eduard Hildebrandt had studied in Berlin and Paris and was a friend of scientist and explorer Alexander von Humboldt. Under Humboldt's influence he took a voyage around the world in 1862-64, making watercolour views of the many places he visited. "Fantasies in red, yellow and opal, sunset, sunrise and moonshine, distances of hundreds of miles like those of the Andes and the Himalaya, narrow streets in the bazaars of Cairo or Suez, panoramas as seen from mast-heads, wide cities like Bombay or Pekin, narrow strips of desert with measure-less expanses of sky all alike display his quality of bravura" (Wikipedia).A note on the verso explains that the drawing's title was written on the old passepartout mount.

        Pinus Lambertiana. Douglas. (Sugar or Sugar Cone Pine)

      Edinburgh & London, 1863. Hand-coloured lithograph. Sheet size: 21 1/2 x 15 13/16 inches. A very fine plate from Ravenscroft's 'The Pinetum Britannicum. A Descriptive Account of Hardy Coniferous Trees' Ravenscroft's work is the third (in order of publication) of the three great coniferous iconographies of the nineteenth century, following Bedford and Lambert. The very fine plates fall into two categories: botanical studies of details of the needles and fruit of the individual trees, and landscape studies of examples of individual trees in their natural habitat. This plate is an outstanding example of the former group, here drawn by James Black and lithographed by Fr. Schenck. Cf. Nissen BBI 1588; cf. Great Flower Books (1990) p.127; cf. Stafleu & Cowan 8685.

        2 spectacular hand-drawn maps documenting "Stonewall" Jackson's daring flank attack at the Battle of Chancellorsville where he would be mortally wounded, done by the nephew of Abraham Lincoln's Vice President, artist, author, and Harvard-educated Union military surgeon Augustus C. Hamlin, marking one of the most important battles of the Civil War and considered the high-water mark for Robert E. Lee's Army of Northern Virginia

      n.p., n.d.. 16" x 10.75", 10.5" x 8". "Manuscript map, 16"" x 10.75"", accomplished in red, brown and black ink with green watercolor on oilcloth, [n.p., n.d.], untitled but depicting the situation at the Battle of Chancellorsville on the afternoon of May 2, 1863 as Thomas J. ""Stonewall"" Jackson began his famous and daring surprise attack on the Union right flank. Offered together with a second manuscript map, 10.5"" x 8"", accomplished in black, blue and red ink, [n.p., n.d.], entitled, ""Map No. 3 Time 10 PM to 12 M May 2, 1863."" Expected folds, some minor soiling and marginal wear, else fine condition overall. Offered together with the book in which later versions of these maps are included: Augustus Choate Hamlin, The Battle of Chancellorsville: The Attack of Stonewall Jackson and his Army upon the Right Flank of the Army of the Potomac at Chancellorsville, Virginia, on Saturday Afternoon, May 2, 1863 (Bangor: Published by the Author, 1896), viii, 196 pp. + 9 color maps., 8vo, bound in illustrated and titled cloth boards. Minor soiling and toning to boards with rubbing at edges, front hinge cracked but binding intact, pages generally clean.The Battle of Chancellorsville (May 1-3, 1863) was one of the most important battles of the Civil War and a significant Confederate victory -- made all the more impressive by the fact that Robert E. Lee was outnumbered by a ratio of two to one. Although the battle proved a significant morale boost for the Confederacy, it was also the scene of a great tragedy: General Thomas J. ""Stonewall"" Jackson, in his finest hour of command, was mortally wounded by his own men. For the Union, it was yet another humiliating defeat in a string of failed attempts to capture the Confederate capital at Richmond, Virginia. The Union defeat would embolden Lee to make a daring invasion of Pennsylvania resulting in the climactic Battle of Gettysburg in July 1863. After two years of failed attempts to capture Richmond, Lincoln sought a new commander for the Army of the Potomac to replace Ambrose Burnside who had resigned following the humiliating Union defeat at Fredericksburg in December 1862. General Joseph Hooker, who enjoyed a reputation as an aggressive commander in subordinate roles, was chosen as the Army's new commander and set about what appeared to be a much superior plan of attack than those attempted by his predecessors. Taking advantage of a nearly two to one numerical superiority, Hooker proposed to send 10,000 cavalrymen around Lee's Army of Northern Virginia, then encamped around Fredericksburg, to disrupt his supply lines in his rear. Meanwhile, hoping to avoid the mass casualties incurred from mass frontal assaults at Antietam and Fredericksburg, Hooker chose to attempt a flank attack on Lee's main army by stationing two corps along the Rappahannock River opposite the Confederate stronghold at Fredericksburg, while he led the balance of his forces westward and then south to the village of Chancellorsville, located several miles to the west of Fredericksburg, in an attempt to attack Lee's rear. Lee quickly realized the nature of Hooker's stratagem and moved to meet Hooker's forces near Chancellorsville. On the second day of the battle, Lee, who commanded only 60,000 men, took the risky decision to divide his forces. While Lee personally commanded several brigades to hold Hooker's forces in check at Chancellorsville, he ordered Stonewall Jackson to take 28,000 men on a daring trek through the wilderness to mount a surprise attack on Hooker's right flank. Amazingly, despite observation balloons and what should have been obvious signs of a mass movement of soldiers, Jackson's maneuver went completely undetected. In the late afternoon of May 2, Jackson's men took the Union XI Corps, many of whom were eating dinner, by complete surprise and quickly overran their positions. Cornered at Chancellorsville, Hooker had little choice but to withdraw his forces, or risk encirclement, which he accomplished over the next two days.The first map, on oilcloth, shows the situation at Chancellorsville at about 5 P.M. on May 2, 1863. At the far left, Jackson's forces, have formed a broad line perpendicular to the unprepared XI corps who were stationed along the Orange Turnpike in preparation for their sweeping advance. Hamlin has identified some of the Confederate commanders present including A. P. ""Hill,"" Raleigh ""Colston,"" Elisha ""Paxton,"" and Robert E. Lee's nephew, Fitzhugh ""Lee."" The author also notes the two divisions commanded personally by Robert E. Lee: Major Generals Richard H. ""Anderson,"" and Lafayette ""McLaws."" Union generals identified on the map include George ""Meade,"" Adolph Von ""Steinwher,"" David B. ""Birney,"" Hiram ""Berry,"" and Francis C. ""Barlow."" In the vicinity of the major action on the Union right flank, Hamlin has identified the regiments that composed the XI Corps. The second map depicts the aftermath of Jackson's attack that afternoon, illustrating the Union retreat before the Confederate onslaught. Hamlin notes the presence of ""Jackson[']s Corps at the top left and illustrates the successive lines commanded by generals ""Thomas,"" ""Rodes,"" ""Pender,"" and ""Colston."" At the bottom left, Hamlin notes that ""Thomas came in position with Pender at 11 P.M. Archer did not arrive until 2 A.M."" He also notes that Francis C. ""Barlow arrived at Hazel Grove at 12. M."" as the Union consolidated its defensive position around Chancellorsville where we find the ""11th Corps reforming"" after their retreat before Jackson's advance. The maps were prepared by Augustus Choate Hamlin (1829-1905) and were used as the basis for his copiously researched 19th century analysis on Jackson's attack on that fateful afternoon at Chancellorsville. At the time, many contemporary observers had blamed the failure on the part of inexperienced soldiers. Hamlin argued, in an effort to restore the honor of his beloved XI Corps (with whom he had served as medical director for some time), that those men had been let down by their officers who failed to communicate critical intelligence in a timely manner. Augustus Choate Hamlin was the son of Elijah Hamlin, the younger brother of Lincoln's first Vice President, Hannibal Hamlin. Augustus attended Bowdoin College and studied medicine at Harvard, followed by two years of additional medical training in Europe. His academic accomplishments earned him nominations as a member of the American Scientific Association, the Royal Antiquarians of Northern Europe, and the Philadelphia Academy of Science, all while still in his early 30s. (A.C. Hamlin, Professional Record, [1864], Abraham Lincoln Papers at the Library of Congress)In 1862, Hamlin had been appointed Brigade Surgeon, and soon thereafter, Surgeon of XI Corps. During the summer of 1864, Hamlin was under serious consideration for the post of Surgeon General. Following the war, Hamlin returned to Bangor, Maine to continue his medical practice. Beyond his scientific and medial expertise, Hamlin also excelled at writing and painting. Besides his work on Chancellorsville, he also published Martyira, or Andersonville Prison (1866), as well as several works on mineralogy--one of his other interests. Hamlin produced a number of watercolors in connection with his publications on minerals (many of which are now housed at the Harvard Mineralogical Museum) as well as producing landscapes in oil, one of which was exhibited at the National Academy of Design in 1859. Hamlin's artistic bent is clearly evidenced in the present maps, which are extraordinary not only aesthetically, but from an informative standpoint as well. "

        Two letters from a female Confederate sympathizer in Pennsylvania to her aunt in New York City

      Greenwood, [Pennsylvania], 1863. Unbound. Very good. Two letters (one with 6-pages and one with 4-pages) measure approximately 4.5" x 6.5". Their envelopes are postmarked at Brookeville, Maryland; one is franked with a 3-cent Washington stamp (Scott #65), and the stamp is missing from the other. The letters and envelopes are in nice shape. Exceptional content from a female Confederate sympathizer regarding the New York City draft riots and General Lee's campaign through Maryland and Pennsylvania that culminated with its defeat at Gettysburg. Some of the content includes: "There are no cars now running to Hood Hills. The Confederates have possession of Frederick [Maryland] and have burned one of the railroad bridges, consequently the cars advance to farther than Ellicotts Mills. . . . I was [on] the last train that came as far as our station, we are not entirely cut off from Balto. . . . The excitement in the city was intense, streets barricaded with Logheads of tobacco, flour barrels, etc. anticipating a cavalry raid. Have not the Confeds behaved as true Southerners in Pennsylvania! The contrast is so great between their conduct and that of the federals on Virginia soil. Gen. Lee is near Leesburg threatening Hooker and 'tis said, determined to take Washington. On Sunday there was an incessant roar of cannon. . . . There must have been a severe battle though the papers spoke of it as mere artillery skirmishing, a true sign the Federals gained no advantage. As we sat upon the portico listening to the dreaded sound, I sadly thought of the many poor fellows lying in agony. . . . We anticipate with foreboding . . . the appearance of either army here. . . . A letter just received from Ester . . . the excitement is intense. Madison St. barricaded up to Aunt Glenn's door. The city being rapidly fortified. . . . We are at a loss to know where is a place of safety. The papers think Lee intends marching on Pittsburgh. . . . Through the papers we have terrible accounts of the scenes enacted in your midst this week. . . . Some of these horrors must have been perpetuated almost before your door but we trust none of you have been in anyway injured. Ma desires me to say that while such excitement prevails in [New York City] you and your family had much better pay us a visit. . . . I do not wonder many poor fellows object to the draft, but tis sad to read of the fiendish delight with which vengeance has been wreaked on many innocent. . . . I hope Mr. Gabriel Disosway will not be molested. I see the rioters have undisputed sway on Staten Island. . . . A wagon train gathering up all the Confederates left in their raid through our country, broken down horses and mules, old wagons, harness, etc. passed us on Wednesday. Halted a while before our gates, old contraband drivers, who in loud tones with terrible oaths expressed their detestation of their former mode of life to our servants, had no respect for the white officers with them and seemed to be on perfect equality. How it made my blood boil! The change of position of the armies will I suppose rid us again from such annoyance. . . . I saw in a Baltimore paper the marriage of Lieut. Clem Disosway to Miss Mary Lyber. . . but think during such a fearful times Miss Mattie's could not have been a joyous wedding. . . ." Of course, the armies did not again change position as after Gettysburg as General Lee's forces never marched north again. No doubt, Miss Rebecca was even more distressed when she later learned that Lieutenant Clem Disosway, had been murdered at Fort Magruder, Virginia by a private (perhaps a draftee) who was serving with him in the First New York Mounted Rifles. An exceptionally scarce pair of letters. As of 2017, no similar correspondence from a female Confederate sympathizer living in the North is recorded in OCLC, the Rare Book Hub, ABPC, or for sale in the trade.

        Recollections of Tartar Steppes and their Inhabitants.

      London.: John Murray.. 1863.. Five full page wood engravings, xvi + 351pp, bound in a very worn half leather binding with the label of the London Library St James's Square on the upper cover, library labels and stamps including stamp stating that this copy was a duplicate and "Sold by order of the committee", closed tear upper edge of title page, a few pages loose but complete, some occasional pencilling and soiling. Lucy Atkinson accompanied her well known artist explorer husband Thomas Witlam Atkinson on his travels through Siberia and Central Asia between 1848 and 1853. In this account she tells an engaging story of their life and impressions on their travels. She was a remarkable woman who coped with the vicissitudes of travel including the birth of their son - delivered without medical attention at the beginning of an extreme Central Asian winter - in a matter of fact and engaged manner. One of the plates in the volume "The English travellers' interview with Chinese on the frontier of China" shows a scene where she and her husband sit on stools while engaged in a very interesting and pleasant intercourse with a group of Chinese soldiers one of whom holds their baby son, Alatau. In the text she describes how Alatau, "had been seized by the kaldi or superior officer, who almost devoured him with kisses, then the other two [soldiers] had him in succession, when he was passed back to the kaldi..." She goes on to describe in detail the conversation they had which required "five persons to carry on the conversation which went through four languages". This encounter, which is just one of the many detailed observations about the people they met on their travels and her reactions to them, mark this book out as a most readable and important early female travel account. Scarce. The London Library, the library from which this copy comes from, was founded in 1841, is still in existence today. Among its well-known Presidents are Thomas Carlyle (the founder), Alfred, Lord Tennyson, T.S. Eliot and Tom Stoppard. .

        Journal of the Discovery of the Source of the Nile.

      Edinburgh and London: William Blackwood and Sons, , 1863. Octavo (215 × 135 mm). Contemporary straight-grain blue morocco, rebacked and relined some time in the early 20th century, smooth spine decoratively gilt in compartments, two-line gilt border enclosing decorative blind frame to sides, floral cornerpieces in blind, marbled edges and endpapers. Photogravure portrait frontispiece, one other similar portrait, 24 further plates and 46 illustrations to the text, mostly after Speke or Grant, and 2 maps, one full-page, the other folding. Ticket of Charles Lauriat, Boston bookseller and noted survivor of the sinking of Lusitania, to the front free endpaper. Extremities a little rubbed, front inner hinge cracked between frontispiece and title page. A very good copy, internally clean and fresh, in an attractive binding. First edition. Dispatched by Burton from Tabora to verify reports of a large body of water to the north of Lake Tanganyika, Speke discovered Victoria Nyanza on 3 August 1858 and immediately pronounced it to be the source of the Nile. Back in London the strained relationship between the two explorers was finally sundered by the acclaim greeting Speke's discovery, which Burton felt to be premature. In 1860 Speke returned to Africa to confirm his thesis, and in spite of complicated diplomacy involved in crossing the various kingdoms of the interior, eventually located "the point where the Nile issues from Lake Victoria – which he reached on 28 July 1862 and which he named Ripon Falls. This was the crowning moment of the expedition and of Speke's career" (ODNB). Unfortunately Speke's companion James Grant, suffering from an ulcerated leg, had returned northward, so the discovery was unverified; nor did the party follow the Nile stream closely as they travelled north to Bunyoro, allowing critics to question whether Speke's river really was the Nile. On his return to London Speke almost immediately came under fire, not least from Burton, who questioned whether he had found the same lake from the north as he had seen from the south. The British Association arranged a public debate to be held in Bath on 16 September 1864, but Speke was found dead the previous day, apparently killed in a hunting accident. The circumstances of his death, his dispute with Burton, and his somewhat slapdash record-keeping, have conspired to deny Speke the prominence of Stanley, Burton or Livingstone. But "the importance of Speke's discoveries can hardly be overestimated. In discovering the 'source reservoir' of the Nile he succeeded in solving the 'problem of all ages' … He and Grant were the first Europeans to cross Equatorial Eastern Africa, and thereby gained for the world a knowledge of rather more than eight degrees of latitude, or about five hundred geographical miles, in a portion of Eastern Africa previously totally unknown" (ibid.)

"Encouraged by George Murray Smith, the publisher of Phantastes, to write novels, he wrote ‘prose fiction of two kinds, one of which dealt with the mystical and psychic and the other described humble life in Scotland’ (DNB). David Elginbrod (1863), dedicated to the memory of Lady Byron, Adela Cathcart (1864), and The Portent: a Story of the Inner Vision of the Highlanders, Commonly Called the Second Sight (1864) were early works in the first category, which effectively challenged nineteenth-century materialism and contributed to the interest in psychic experiences." (Oxford Dictionary of National Biography). ".during this period he was struggling hard to write something as successful as Phantastes, but it was not until 1863 that he completed David Elginbrod, a long, didactic, and gothically romantic novel about a young man who has a career not dissimilar to MacDonald's own. His former publishers Smith and Elder turned it down, but it was read by Mrs Craik, who persuaded her own publishers Hurst and Blackett to take it on. It proved extremely popular and established MacDonald as a writer" (The Oxford Companion to Children's Literature). Not in Sadleir or Wolff. HBS 67836. $1,850 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        WE , THE UNDERSIGNED, RESPECTIVELY CONTRIBUTE THE SUM SET OPPOSITE EACH OF OUR NAMES, FOR THE PURPOSE OF CONDUCTING THE PRESENT UNION POLITICAL CAMPAIGN IN THE STATE OF OHIO; FOR THE SUCCESS OF THE UNION TICKET, AND FOR THE DEFEAT AND UTTER EXTERMINATION OF VALLANDIGHAMISM AND TREASON IN THE STATE.

      1863. Broadside, 7.5" x 9.25". Printed on lined paper, with the names of thirty- four men in pencil manuscript with their donation amounts. All names appear to be in the same handwriting. Light folds, a small chip to blank left edge. Very Good. Clement Vallandigham, two-term Ohio Congressman, was the most prominent and notorious of the Midwest Copperheads. General Burnside arrested him in 1863, on Lincoln's orders, for inflammatory anti-War and anti-Negro speeches. Found guilty by a military tribunal, he was banished to the Confederacy. But a few months later he turned up in Canada, campaigning in absentia as a Peace Democrat for Ohio's governorship in 1863. Ohio's Union Party energetically sought his defeat. This election broadside is a survival of that effort. Vallandigham lost by more than 100,000 votes. The names listed on this broadside were from Geauga County, Ohio, mostly from Russell Township and Chester Township. Most were farmers; Jacob Chase was a blacksmith; John Peirce a cattle broker; and Joseph Wooley a minister. Some other names include Artemas Robinson, Detroit Burnett, Warren Robinson, John H. Peirce, Jacob Chase, Samuel G. Perkins, Calvin Gates, Cyrus Millard, James Logan, T.C. Phinney, Allen Burgess, Joseph Wooley, W.C. Burgess, John King, Emory Petton, C.T Bailey, Samuel Robinson, Roswell Jones, Augustus Greenfield, B.F. Robinson, B. Matthews, A.M. Hall, H. Lansing, Taber Warren, A. Roby, N.L. Smith, and H.S.

        Iceland: Its Scenes and Sagas.

      1863 1863 - London: Smith, Elder and Co. 1863. With 1 folding engraved, nicely restored map, 4 chromo-lithographs, 12 fullpage woodcuts and 17 textual illustr. + music. XLVIII + 448 pp. A few leaves weakly foxed, otherwise a well-preserved copy bound in nice three-quarter blue morocco richly gilt on spine and goldlines on boards, all edges gilt. Binding signed Tout Binder. * Aged twenty-eight, Sabine Baring-Gould, the young writer and teacher, was fascinated by the tradition of the Icelandic sagas, and this was the catalyst for his adventure and the book that emerged from it. His voyage took him from the then tiny settlement of Reykjavik through remote and hostile terrain, passing through the empty expanse of Iceland's countryside. Baring-Gould provides a colourful account of an Icelandic society that has long since disappeared. Illustrated with Baring-Gould's own drawings, Iceland: Its Scenes and Sagas is an entertaining and eccentric insight into a world of myth and legend as well as a classic of natural and human observation.

        A two-volume Civil War scrapbook kept by an ardent Confederate woman from Petersburg, Virginia

      Petersburg, Virginia 1863 - Both volumes, apparently re-used geological journals, measure approximately 6" x 9" and contain a total of approximately 260 pages filled with newspaper clippings from Petersburg and Richmond, Virginia, including Petersburg's Daily Express, Richmond's Central Presbyterian, and The Richmond Sentinel. A number of ephemeral pieces are laid-in, tipped-in, and laid-on including: * A manuscript letter to Col. Manning dated 29 July 1862, in advance of the Seven Days Battles in defense of Richmond: "Camp Lee . . . A circular has just come from General [S. G.] French ordering the Brigade to move tomorrow at 7 o'clock a. m. with three days cooked rations in haversack. Orderd to move to the City ??? road where a guide will meet the Brigade from there to Stephensen's Mill on same road 7 miles from town there to await further orders. . . .", * A three-page manuscript poem "Dominoes, A Trophy of the Congress" by Mrs. Giles B. Cooke, a dramatic tribute describing the success of the iron-clad monitor against the wooden ships of the Union Navy, * An unused patriotic envelope with a full-cover Stars and Bars flag with "Jeff. Davis, Pres.t" and "Alex.r H. Stephens, Vice Pres.t" emblazoned on the red stripes, * A postally used envelope addressed to Louisa's daughter Lizzie at their Lombard Street home, A Confederate $20 note (Criswell T-67), and * A near indecipherable manuscript poem titled, "In Memorial: Respectfully dedicated to the Holders of Confederate Treasury Notes." The newspaper clippings provide a wealth of detailed war information that Mrs. Cameron thought worthy of preservation, much of it Virginia-related or pertaining to women, including: * A description of a skirmish by Captain McIlwaine, an officer from Petersburg serving with the 13th Virginia Cavalry, * An article titled the Death of Captain O. Jennings Wise and ex-Governor Wise's farewell to his son's remains (O Jennings Wise, a Captain of the Richmond Blues, was killed at Roanoke Island while defending Nag's Head, North Carolina), * The Obituary of Major H. K. Meade, Jr. of Petersburg, * Articles about Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson, * Articles related to military battles and actions including, Yankees in Rockingham County, the Evacuation of Norfolk, the Burning of Hampton, Lee's Maryland campaign, Morgan's Raid, the capture of Union vessels by the Steamer Sumter, the Battles of Fredericksburg, Port Republic, Second Manassas, Winchester, Corinth, Elk Horn (Pea Ridge), Fort Donelson, Murfreesboro, Nashville, New Orleans, Shiloh, etc., * The Field After the Battle, a graphic description of the carnage at 2nd Manassas: "If the reader can imagine . . . looking across the country in the direction from which we advanced . . . he will see dead and wounded lying by thousands as far as the eye can see. The woods are likewise full of them. . . . The ground is strewn not only with men, but arms, ammunition, provisions, haversacks, canteens and whatever else. . . . In many places you cannot walk three feet without being compelled to step over or around a corpse. . . . Today I came across a wounded Federal, who has lain for the last two days and nights, where, by extending his hand on either side, he could touch the dead bodies of five of his companions. One of these he was coolly using for a pillow. How callous men become by familiarity with the scenes of war." * An article about General Butler's imprisonment of a New Orlean's lady who had laughed at him in public, which probably led to his infamous General Order No. 28 declaring that any woman who insulted or laughed at a Union officer was to be arrested and treated as a common prostitute, * An article, Career of a Female Volunteer, about Mrs. Laura J. Williams who disguised herself as a male, assumed the name Henry Banford, and fought as a Lieutenant in an infantry company.* An article, A True Heroine, about Jane Sansome who guided General Forest's forces across an otherwise impassable river near Gadsden, Alabama. * An exhortation [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        THE HOLY BIBLE

      London: Oxford University Press, 1863. As. Full Leather. Very Good. Unpag. A Webb/Holmes Family Bible. Beautiful tooled leather cover stamped with rules and frames in black, surrounding gilt personalization "H.G.C." Five raised bands on spine, with title in gilt and black decorative designs. Corners and extremities a little rubbed and worn, but basically very good. All edges gilt. Lovely red marbled feathery eps. T.p. reads: "The Holy Bible, containing the Old and New Testaments: translated out of the original tongues: and with the former translations diligently compared and revised, by his majesty's special command. " Appointed to be read in churches.... Printed at the University Press. Sold by E. Gardner and Son...and by all booksellers. Printed in easy-to-read large type in double columns, with the Apocrypha separating the Old and New Testaments. Preceding the New Testament is a "Family Register" beginning with Rev. Benjamin Webb (1695 - 1746), a preacher, of Eastham, Mass. Three generations of Webbs are listed here. His fifth child and youngest son, Barnabas (1731), married Mary Holmes (b. 1734), daughter of Boston silversmith William Holmes. Her family records are listed for four generations, starting with Rev. William Homes, born in Ireland in 1663, moved to Chilmark, MA. Name is variously spelled Homes/Holmes in this Bible. One of the Holmes, a sea captain, married the sister of Benjamin Franklin. The 13 children of Barnabas and Mary are the last people listed in these pages. This is a beautiful Bible of historic interest, and invaluable if your ancestors include the Barnabas Webb family.

Ferreira, Abade de Miragaya, Porto. - Nota manuscrita no anterrosto: ?Adnotandum - Este Nobiliário foi escrito, desenhado, e colorido por Augusto Soares de Azevedo Barbosa de Pinho Leal, autor do Portugal antigo e moderno. É autographo authentico. [assinado] Pedro A. Ferreira? Constata-se que o autor deste manuscrito é Pinho Leal (Lisboa ou Penamacor, 1816- Porto 1884) e que o seguinte possuidor foi o Dr. Pedro Augusto Ferreira (Penajóia, Lamego, 1833 - Porto, 1913), Abade de Miragaia desde 1864 (e durante 35 anos), sendo ele co-autor com Pinho Leal do Portugal Antigo e Moderno; obra fundamental da bibliografia portuguesa. Inocêncio XVII, 187: 'Pinho Leal, benemerito auctor d'este importante diccionario (1873-1890), falleceu em 1884, quando a obra ía approximadamente em meio do tomo X e do artigo Vianna do Castello. Ficando interrompida a publicação, os editores convidaram o rev. abbade de Miragaya para a continuar e concluir, por haver sido o «primeiro cyrenéo» do auctor, como este o citou repetidas vezes no texto da obra'.'As relações de ambos eram antigas e constantes'.

O manuscrito contém um armorial inacabado, com brasões em vários estados de projecto e de acabamento, que enumeramos e comentamos na sequência em que se apresentam: Fólio nº2: brasão inexistente e já com descrição das Armas de Portugal [o autor, sendo combatente miguelista, poderia ter hesitado no novo grafismo liberal, da mesma forma que não figurarão seguidamente neste armorial os brasões da aristocracia liberal]. Fólio nº3: brasão a tinta-da-china com coronel e com título delineado a lápis de Sousas-Braganças do Duque de Lafões, Marquês de Arronches e Conde de Miranda do Corvo.
