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)

      Rochester, Kent, 18. V. 1869.. 8vo. 1 pp. (26 lines) on 2 ff. On headed paper of Gad's Hill Place.. To Charles Elme Francatelli: "Mr. Charles Dickens sends his compliments to Mr. Francatelli, and begs to let him know that Mr. Dickens's servant has made a very strong complaint to him respecting the conduct of the Hotel Porters this morning. He says that they passed the duty of helping him with his luggage, from one to another, in a manner which plainly showed they did not mean to help him at all, and that at last he had to bring down Miss Dickens's large trunk from the second floor, single-handed. This same servant has been with Mr. Dickens at innumerable hotels, and never made a complaint to him on any former occasion. The St. James's Hotel is so admirably conducted under Mr. Francatelli's management, and the service is usually so quick and obliging, that Mr. Dickens feels it incumbent on him to bring this misconduct under Mr. Francatelli's notice". - Dickens was staying at the St James's Hotel, with Mamie, on 18th May. - A trifle dusted and detached at fold.

      - Chez l'auteur, Paris, 1869. VII+144pp. + Album I+74 illustrations. 28cm. Bound. Scarce first edition. Romain Merlin (1736-1869), the son of a bookseller, was himself a bookseller and engaged in his later life in remarkable way for French libraries.

The official editions are from 1869. The work shows a big catalog of pictures, often not very careful reproductions of the originals according the technical possibilities of the time.

        Changing Base; or What Edward Rice Learnt at School

      Lee and Shepard Boston: Lee and Shepard. 1869. First. Scarce early printing, first published in 1868. 12mo. 282pp, four plates. Original brick red cloth with gilt title and baseball decorations on the spine. A little foxing to tissue guard and frontispiece plate, but a bright and clean very near fine copy. Although Shannon refers to this as "The first known novel incorporating baseball activity" (p.39), we have handled one earlier (Uncle Nat; or, The Good Time Which George and Frank Had, Trapping, Fishing, Camping Out, etc. by Alfred Oldfellow. New York, 1865). Thus this is the second novel to feature a substantial amount of baseball activity (two and a half chapters with an extended description of a schoolboy game), and the first to feature an obvious reference to the game in the title. The author, son of the famous orator Edward Everett and cousin of the author Edward Everett Hale, also served in Congress. A very nice copy. .

        Book of Mormon: An account written by the hand of Mormon upon plates taken from the plates of Nephi. Deseret Alphabet

      New York: Published for the Deseret University by Russell Bros., 1869. First edition. 443pp. Octavo [23 cm] Black cloth with gilt stamped title and temple on backstrip. Good. Inscription on the front free endsheet and pastedown. Final signature loose and laid in. Head and foot of the backstrip are bumped. This is one of the scarcer Book of Mormons with a print run much smaller than the Palmyra or Kirtland editions. The Deseret Alphabet was introduced in 1854 and was created by Parley P. Pratt, Heber C. Kimball and George D. Watt. Made up of thirty-eight characters to correlate with basic sounds in the English language, the Deseret Alphabet was intended to be used to help simplify the principles of the English language. The creation of the language was one the more unusual ideas of Brigham Young, and was never embraced in the way he thought it would be. The Deseret Alphabet was abandoned shortly after Young's death. & & According to Jacobs "The Deseret alphabet was designed principally by George D. Watt with the assistance of a committee comprised of himself, P.P. Pratt, and Heber C. Kimball. The Alphabet was completed December 1853. Orson Pratt translated the Book of Mormon from November 1868 to March 1869. Pratt and R.L. Campbell proofread the manuscript during the month of March 1869. Printed by Russell Brothers of New York City from May to September 1869. Only 500 copies were printed. Many of these copies were destroyed as a result of water damage at Deseret University."

        Hereditary Genius: An Inquiry into Its Laws and Consequences

      London: Macmillan, 1869 First edition of Galton's most important work. Presentation copies of Galton's books are uncommon; the only one noted in recent auction records is on the Honeyman copy of Meteorologica, sold in 1979, which is also inscribed "from the Author. Original mauve cloth, expertly recased. Gilt front cover and spine. Octavo. Two folding tables. Includes the slip with "Directions to binder" bound between 2C3 and 2C4. Head of spine faded, minor soiling. A good, clean copy. Presentation copy, inscribed "From the Author" on the verso of the front free endpaper. This copy was owned by John Tomes (1815-1895), founder of the Royal Dental Hospital (See Garrison and Morton 3683), and bears his signature in two places, along with pencil notes on a terminal blank, presumably in his hand. "In Hereditary Genius, his best-known and most influential book, Galton investigated the heritability of scholarly, artistic, and athletic talent, using the records of notable families as data. He concluded that such talents have a high degree of heritability, and that people vary in the kind and degree of hereditary abilities they possess. He applied the Gaussian or normal curve to the range of human abilities, expanding upon Quetelet's observation that certain measurable human characteristics are distributed like the error function, and thus gave a new importance to biological and psychological variation, which had previously been regarded as unimportant" (Haskell Norman Catalogue No. 864). "…[Galton] in my opinion to-day, created it; there is nothing in the memoirs of Gauss and Bravais that really antedates his discoveries…Galton, starting from the organic relationship between parent and offspring, passed to the idea of a coefficient measuring the correlation of all the pairs of organs, and thence to the 'organic' relationship of all sorts of factors…Galton realized as fully as any of us now the width of application that would open up to the new calculus of correlation…His advances were chiefly hampered by the restriction of his data and the need for organized observers and computers" (Karl Pearson in Pearson & Kendall, Studies in the History of Statistics and Probability, Volume I, pp. 200-1).
