Bound with original endpapers. The very rare and often missing plan of the Beit Allah or Mosque at Mecca in excellent condition ! George Sale (1697, Canterbury, Kent, England ?- 1736, London, England) was an Orientalist and practising solicitor, best known for his 1734 translation of the Qur'an into English. He was also author of The General Dictionary, in ten volumes, folio. He was educated at the King's School, Canterbury, and in 1720 became a student of the Inner Temple. It is known that he trained as a solicitor in his early years but took time off from his legal pursuits, returning at need to his profession. Sale was an early member of the Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge. Sale became seriously ill for eight days before his death, and died at Surrey Street, The Strand, of fever on November 13, 1736. Sale was buried at St. Clement Danes. His family consisted of a wife and five children. He took the time to apply himself in the study of the eastern and other languages, both ancient and modern. Carolus Dadichi, the king's interpreter, helped Sale in his studies of oriental dialects. Sale reputedly spent 25 years in Arabia, thus acquiring his knowledge of the Arabic language and customs; this was the basis of Voltaire's statements in the Dictionnaire Philosophique (articles ?'Alcoran,?' ?'Arot and Marot?'). On the other hand Harold Lyon Thomson, writing in the Dictionary of National Biography, stated that he never left his native country. In 1734, Sale published the translation of the Qur'an, dedicated to John Lord Carteret. Sale provided numerous notes and a "Preliminary Discourse" which was manifest with in-depth knowledge of Eastern habits, manners, traditions, and laws. Voltaire bestowed high praise on Sale's version of the Koran. Sale did not, however, place Islam at an equal level with Christianity. He stated: "As Mohammed gave his Arabs the best religion he could, preferable, at least, to those of the ancient pagan lawgivers, I confess I cannot see why he deserves not equal respect, though not with Moses or Jesus Christ, whose laws came really from heaven, yet with Minos or Numa, notwithstanding the distinction of a learned writer, who seems to think it a greater crime to make use of an imposture to set up a new religion, founded on the acknowledgment of one true God, and to destroy idolatry, than to use the same means to gain reception to rules and regulations for the more orderly practice of heathenism already established." Sale's translation of the Qu'ran has been reprinted into modern times. In January 2007, Keith Ellison, the first Muslim elected to the United States Congress, was sworn in on an old edition of Sale's Koran, donated to the Library of Congress in the early 19th century by Thomas Jefferson. Sale was also a corrector of the Arabic New Testament (1726) issued by the Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge. He acquired a library with valuable rare manuscripts of Persian, Turkish, and Arabic origins (which is now held in the Bodleian Library, Oxford). (Wikipedia)

        The South-Eastern District of South Australia: Its Resources and Requirements

      Adelaide: published by the author at the offices of The South Australian newspaper, 1869. Octavo, with the large folding map beautifully preserved; original gilt blocked brown cloth (a bit worn at extremities), spine lettered by hand at a later date; front endpaper inscribed 'To James Moorehouse, with the compliments of the author Ebenezer Ward...', bookplates of Edward Angas Johnson and Charles Glover and Adelaide binders ticket. A record of Adelaide's growth and prosperity. Pleasing association copy, inscribed by the author to the Melbourne Anglican bishop James Moorehouse. The Australian Dcitionary of Biography records 'the second bishop of Melbourne had intellectual distinction, administrative skill, eloquence and leadership; he also smoked a pipe and walked with a bulldog'.Published to promote the benefits of South Australian settlement, the salient feature of this book is the large lithographic map of Adelaide and surrounds, with boundaries, leases and holdings demarcated (thus forming a good historical record of the growth of the settlement). Photolithographed by F. S. Crawford during December 1867, it is technically accomplished and typical of the high standard of cartographic printing at the Adelaide Surveyor Generals office from the mid 1850's onwards. The book includes a meticulous three page index for the folding map.Of additional interest are the 64 pages of advertisements, effectively forming a concise trade directory of Adelaide in 1869. This copy has passed through the hands of two notable Australian bibliophiles: surgeon and South Australian resident Dr. Edward Angas Johnson (the nephew of George French Angas), and Adelaide city council alderman Charles Glover, an assiduous collector of Australiana and ethnological artefacts.

        After the French Liberation of Italy

      [1869], [London] 1869 - Rare. This is a single leaf, with the poem dated "D.G.R. 1859" below the text. The sonnet was printed as part of the proof process for Rossetti's Poems, published in April 1870. Rossetti decided not to include the poem after all because of its erotic nature and reference to prostitution. Thus the poem was written in 1859 but not published until 1904, many years after Rossetti's death. William Michael Rossetti, in his Bibliography of Dante Gabriel Rossetti (1904) considers this as a separate item of importance. There are only four copies in Worldcat (Lilly, Princeton, Texas, and Huntington). Two tiny chips on right side of page else in very good condition. Although there is no evidence with this item of its provenance, it is supposedly from the collection of William E. Fredeman, the Pre-Raphaelite bibliographer and collector.PRERAPH/120114.

        [Victorian Textiles- Lace Sample Book] "Cahier de Dentelle"

      [France], [1869]. Original brown paper covered boards, cloth spine. 80 unnumbered pages. A manuscript Victorian lace sample book entirely written in fine handwriting (fountain pen) by Marie Vachoiz and comprising 70 original samples of hand-made crocheted, knitted, and bobbin lace samples, 68 of them beautifully mounted on thick coloured paper and then tipped-in, two tipped-in directly onto the sheets (lightly ruled paper). Title page: "Chahier de Dentelle (in heavy lettering) [starting of penciled lettering] [a string of numerals ] 1869, Marie Vachoiz." The quality of the lace presented here represents a significant expertise and polish in producing handmade lace. The text details 81 different patterns in manuscript (with 70 actual samples) and at the end offers a few pages discussing the specifics of producing knitted and crochet laces. An important work in the sense of its teaching parameter, rarely found thus, with examples and copious explanations, in manuscript form, and the extent of these suggest a work perhaps made in anticipatioin of publication. The superb patterns detailed in elegant cursive include those M. Vachoiz has identified as the Spider, the Laf, Tortoiseshell, the Scale, Pyramids, Snowflake, Valencian, and many others. A superbly preserved survival, with all the examples in perfect condition. Boards somewhat worn at corners, well-preserved internally. Laid in is a fine pen and ink engraving transferred onto gold leaf paper (unknown if this was owned by the author or laid in by a subsequent owner).

        Shining Cuckoo (Chrysococcyx Lucidus)

      London: The Author 1840-, 1869. Hand-coloured lithograph (535 x 350 mm.), with letter-press text; very good. Gould notes that although the Shining Cuckoo is an active bird, 'it is characterized by a remarkable degree of quietude'. Like most Cuckoos it deposits it single egg in the nest of another bird. This is an original hand coloured lithograph plate from Gould's most famous work, Birds of Australia.Birds of Australia is a great tribute to Australia and was one of Gould's most successful projects. 'Only 250 copies have been printed, and the drawings have been effaced from stones; of these, 180 were subscribed for, the remaining seventy the author proposes to issue upon the original terms, with the exception, that five or more parts shall be delivered in the course of each year instead of four; the delivery to commence on the 1st of January 1849' (Prospectus).

        Theodore's Cattle

      Poona: For Private Circulation, Printed at the Deccan Herald Press,, 1869. Octavo. [ii], 58pp. Original purple bead-grain cloth covered card wraps. C20th rubber stamp of philatelist M. A. M. Graham inside upper panel of the wraps. Wraps a little rubbed and sunned, upper wrap professionally reattached, slight discolouration of the title page from ?old repair, light toning, else very good. First and only edition of this justification of Lord Napier's conduct before the storming of Magdala, at the conclusion of the Abyssinian Expedition. Concerning the Emperor's "peace gift" of cattle, this was an enigmatic incident which emerged from a profound clash of culture and a confusion of intent, and which the British commander clearly felt was in need of some clarification. Scarce, COPAC and OCLC list only the BL copy. The pamphlet opens with an extract from Napier's speech at Welshpool in August 1868, in which he explains that he had always been determined that he would "receive no negotiations from Theodore," but had revealed this only to his Military and Political Secretaries. Tewodros had sent two letters to the British commander, the first, on 11 April - "Theodore's Testament" - was written following the Abyssinians' heavy defeat in the battle of Good Friday and in response to Napier's ultimatum, it was also immediately before the Emperor's abortive suicide attempt. The second was sent the following day when he was "now desperately anxious to make peace." (Appleyard and Pankhurst) He freed the first of the contentious captives, and offered to "send heifers to you," a gesture of friendship "deeply engrained in Ethiopian culture." Unaware of the true significance of this peace-offering, Napier seems to have agreed to accept them, but when the 1000 cattle and 500 sheep were approaching the British camp, the underlying meaning was explained to him, and he had them stopped at the first piquet "until Tewdoros's 'full acceptance' of his conditions." Tewodros learned of the failure of his peace initiative later that evening, and again essayed suicide, this time successfully. Magdala was comprehensively sacked the following day. This pamphlet was evidently issued soon after Napier's return to India, having briefly basked in the thanks of his grateful nation, in order to allay the rumours of duplicity which may have begun to circulate. A family copy inscribed on the title page from "C.F.B. from E. W. B. 1870" and then "Robert Napier Bray, 1st D[uke] of W[ellington's] Regt. late 33rd Regt. from C. F. B. 23rd Oct 1896."

        Charadrius Xanthocheilus: Wagl (Australian Golden Plover)

      London, 1869 This splendid hand-colored, folio size lithograph, Charadrius Xanthocheilus: Wagl, from John Gould?s (1804-1881) monumental book "Birds of Australia", is in mint condition and measures 14" x 21". This lithograph magnificently displays the author?s scientific skill and attention to detail. These birds, commonly called Australian Golden Plovers, are expertly hand-colored in shade and patterns of brown, taupe, black and white. The adult in the foreground has a black face, chest and underside with a white outline, whereas the juvenile has the intricate patterns of feathers throughout its body. At the time "Birds of Australia's" publication, the birds of this region were essentially unknown to a European audience and as Gould himself admitted in the preface to the book, ?the field was comparatively a new one?.John Gould was without question the most prolific ornithological artist of the 19th century, and the only one to rival John James Audubon in ambition and quality. The 19th century was a time of intense fascination with discoveries in natural history, especially regarding knowledge of the wildlife of exotic lands. Gould combined his passion for natural history with outstanding scientific, artistic, and entrepreneurial talents, and embarked on a series of projects that would eventually make him the leading publisher of ornithological illustrations in Victorian Britain.Gould?s unparalleled career spanned five decades, and he produced a monumental series of books of birds throughout the world. The Birds of Australia is John Gould?s largest and most important work. Because he himself spent so much time in the field making his own observations, the text that accompanies the illustrations is by far the most accurate and detailed of all his works. Each of the illustrations is stunningly colored and flawlessly drafted, highlighting the exquisite plumage and elegance of the birds.The colossal work is tremendous throughout, and quite rightly, it is considered Gould?s masterpiece. When Gould began work on the Birds of Australia, the ornithology of that continent was all but unknown in Europe. Gould started his research using specimens available in England, but quickly realized that the supply was far from sufficient. He discarded the work and traveled to Australia to begin his effort anew on his magnum opus.Arriving in Australia in September 1838, Gould and his wife, Elizabeth, spent the following eighteen months exploring Tasmania and the adjacent islands, South Australia, and New South Wales, and penetrated well into the interior. Over the course of these extensive travels Gould made many of the preliminary drawings that were translated into the remarkable series of 681 lithographs. Gould collected and documented so many new species -- more than three hundred -- that very few additions have been made since. His voyage to Australia was unsurpassed in the annals of ornithology.
