        Ondonga kielen ABD. Ensimäinen irja Ondonga kielellä . . . =ABD Moshindonga. Omukanda uatango koshindonga ua piangoa . . .Helsinki, Suomalaisen Kirjallisuuden Seuran [=Finnish Literature Society], 1876. 8vo. With 2 title-pages, the first in Finnish and the second in Ndonga, a brief preface in both languages, but with the sample texts in Ndonga. Contemporary brown textured cloth.

      WorldCat (2 copies); not in Mendelssohn. A rare primer of the Bantu dialect Ndonga or OshiNdonga, spoken by the Ovambo people in the kingdom of Ondonga in what is now northern Namibia and southern Angola, still spoken today by some 1 million people. It was published by the printing office of the Finnish Literature Society in Helsinki and many of the texts are Christian. Finnish Lutherans set up a mission in Ondangwa, seat of the kings of Ondonga, in 1870, and the present primer was probably intended both to help Finnish missionaries preparing for life in Africa learn Ndonga and for them to use in Ondonga to teach the natives to read and write their own language and to promote Christian ideas.In very good condition, with only very slight browning. Lower corner of the front board chipped.

        Lengthy Autograph Letter Signed to Mrs Julia K. Fish, 4 pages 8vo, Headquarters, Army of the United States, Washington, 11 July 1870.

      - Discussing the future of Fort Monroe. '. the President has at last resolved to promote Capt Turnbull - though to be frank I must say that he owes nothing to me in this result: for I regarded the case as involving the existence of the Artillery School at Fortress Monroe. If this school cannot enforce study and attention it cannot long survive. Now the only means it has to compel attention to the Course of Study is to deny promotion & advancement to those who fall short of its requirements. This case was a test one - for all realised the claim and influence of the family. And if the Rule cannot be enforced against a favorite it surely should not as against a poor fellow with no such influences or opportunities. ' ''I wish you would send this my letter to Col Benjamin who will see the force of my argument better than you can .' ''[Turnbull's] case was one that concerned the whole body of Artillery officers, for it will only result in the downfall of that School, which has no force or utility unless it has the sanction of authority. .'Fort [Fortress] Monroe in Hampton, Virginia, was established as early as 1609, but was greatly enlarged, and named after President James Monroe, in the nineteenth century. It remained in Union hands during the American Civil War. Still an active military establishment it is due to be decommissioned in 2011.

        LAS de Popelin à Flaubert pendant de siège de Paris

      1870 - L.A.S. de Popelin à Flaubert pendant de siège de Paris (29/09/1870) Lettre très sombre, pleine de mélancolie, écrite par Claudius Popelin, de Bruxelles, alors que Paris subit un siège cruel. «Quelque soit l'issue de cette lutte désespérée, d'où nous vienne l'apaisement, quelle que main qui nous mène, l'avenir n'est pas gai. Mais l'avenir n'est jamais gai. C'est toujours la faillite, en dernier compte, parce que c'est toujours la négation des arrangements sur lesquels nous avons basé la liquidation de notre existence et le refus du présent de solder les obligations du passé [.]. Où allons-nous ainsi emportés ? Vers quel état des choses ignoré, mais à coup sûr étranger à nos moeurs, antipathique à nos goûts, hostile, sans doute, à nos passions ? Qui nous le dira ? Qui le sait ? Vous ne voyez qu'un grand trou noir : cela n'existe pas, mon vieux Flaubert. Il n'y a pas de trou dans l'histoire, il n'y a que des déchirures et des raccommodages plus ou moins solides. Hélas ! L'humanité sublunaire doit se contenter d'avoir sur son humble globe terraqué un vêtement rapiécé. C'est le signe de son infériorité dans la hiérarchie des créatures. Mais serait-il vrai qu'il existât ce gouffre dont vous parlez, qu'il nous sera toujours loisible, je suppose, de ne pas nous engager dans ses ténèbres et de nous cramponner à ses bords. La ruine du monde antique, alors que, non seulement les oracles, mais encore le bruit des choses et les voix de la solitude criaient partout, le dieu Pan est mort, ne fut si brusque et si dénuée de transition, que les sages des sectes désertes ne pussent sacrifier aux Dieux proscrits, dans des bois sacrés à l'écart. Eh bien, mon vieux Flaubert, nous ferons ainsi qu'eux. Nous aurons notre petite Dodone écrite dans un coin, avec ses mystères et ses rites. C'est pourquoi il faut que vous en reveniez [.]. Je ne puis rien vous prédire de la façon dont se dénouera le drame où nous jouons un rôle si lamentable, mais ce que je vous affirme, c'est que nous nous embrasserons avec effusion et que vous serez près d'elle, parmi les meilleurs et les plus aimés des coeurs fidèles. Gautier est à Paris !!! Mon petit garçon est chez Dumas, à ma portée par l'Angleterre. Pauvre, pauvre Feydeau !! Nous sommes tous à vous dans le souvenir et dans l'espoir».

        Thian Ti Hioui - Association de Hung ou Société du Ciel et de la Terre

      Sans lieu ni date (probablement publié en Cochinchine dans les années 1860-1870) - 1 grand volume in-4, III->IX + 328 pp., reliure moderne plein cuir bordeaux, page de titre absente, premiers et derniers feuillets fragilisés (déchirures, petits manques de papier, salissures), le corps du texte est en très bon état. L'étude est suivie d'un ensemble de 15 planches sur 16 (la dernière planche est manquante) Les 3 dernières planches sont fragilisées et présentent de légers manques de papier marginaux. L'ensemble est tout à fait correct. Très rare étude parue originellement à Batavia en 1866 en langue flamande. Le texte de Schlegel fut ensuite traduit en français et publié probablement en Cochinchine, au début de la colonisation. Il s'agit ici d'une rare édition lithographiée d'après le manuscrit de traduction. Important ouvrage sur La Société Secrète Chinoise Thian Ti Houi. Les planches représentent les différents insignes, symboles et étendards de la Confrérie.
