         Machzor] Kefi Minhag America: Tefilot Bnei Yeshurun le-Rosh Hashana. [The Divine Service of American Israelites for the New Year].

      Cincinnati Bloch & Co 1872 - Two volumes, duodecimo (17.2 x 12 cm). New Year - 212 pp.; Atonement - 307, [1], 55, [1] pp. Parallel texts in English and Hebrew, with psalms with additional German translation. Original dark brown cloth boards with gilt lettering to spines, gilt edges and blind-stamped decoration to covers of New Year volume; slight wear to edges. Atonement volume with stamp of Tobias Schanfarber to lower pastedown. A very nice copy. One of the first accepted Reform prayer books for the High Holidays in the United States. The volumes include numerous non-traditional prayers in English and German that are almost Protestant in tone, whilst omitting a number of traditional prayers such as Utnah Toqef, Kol Nidre and most of the Al Chets. The inclusion of German in the Siddur testifies to the essentially German character of the nineteenth century American denomination of Reform Judaism. This Siddur was intended to serve as the common prayer-book for all of America's Jews. Nevertheless, the community remained divided over traditional versus liberal payer-books and neither became dominant. The publisher of the volumes, Rabbi Isaac Mayer Wise (1819-1900), was a pioneer of Reform Judaism, and became its acknowledged leader and institutional architect. Wise organised the formation of the Union of American Hebrew Congregations (1873), the Hebrew Union College (1875) and the Central Conference of American Rabbis (1889). The reforms that he instituted sought to modernise Jewish teaching and adapt Jewish lifestyle to the conditions of life in a new land. Wise also played a crucial role in establishing the Central Conference of American Rabbis, in 1889, of which he later became president. The Union prayer-book was assigned by the Conference to all Reform congregations. The prayer-book was first published by Rabbi Wise in 1857 and was intended to address the initial conflict in the United States between supporters and opponents of traditionalism in early Reform Judaism. The roots of this Machzor date back to a programme Wise had laid out in the May 1847 issue of Isaac Leeser's Occident, in which he argues that American Jews came "from different countries, and, brought with them diverse Minhagim; and this circumstance must always prove a source of confusion and disagreement in the various Synagogues" and that it was necessary to create a new Minhag (custom of prayer) to "bring unity among. all the American Synagogues" and to "uphold the Word of the Living God. in the free country of America", without "the desire for innovation, nor the thirst for fame, nor a giddy disposition for reform".

         Collection of Twenty-three Tavern License Applications from Indiana County, Pennsylvania

      Indiana County, Pennsylvania, 1872. Various sizes, bulk measure approximately 30 x 19 cm. Twenty-three court documents related to the sale of liquor and operation of a public house or tavern in Indiana County, Pennsylvania, located east of Pittsburgh. Indiana County's first court convened in a tavern in 1806, testament to the integral role taverns played in American public life. These later documents submitted to and generated by the "Honorable judges of the court of quarter sessions in and for Indiana County" include petitions from applicant, certificates attesting to applicant's character signed by citizens, and bond. Most documents handwritten, with the latest applications (1865 and 1872) appearing as a printed form completed in the applicant's hand. Consistent contractual language used throughout. The charge for public houses is to provide with housing "and other conveniences for the accommodation of the public, and the entertainment of strangers and travelers". Notable, perhaps, is that Indiana County was an important location on the Underground Railroad in the 1830s-40s. Collection features the application of one woman (1856) and a petition to "hawk and peddle clocks for the term of one year" (1848). Condition mostly consistent with creases and brittle, chipping edges, otherwise very good.

In addition to executing his administrative duties, he travelled widely and read voraciously to collect details of the history and customs of the locality. 'In 1869 Mayo had selected Hunter to organize a statistical survey of India, a task which was to occupy the next twelve years of his life. His first duty was to travel over the whole of India, in order to see things for himself and talk with local officials. These tours, which he often repeated, gave him an unrivalled knowledge of every corner of the subcontinent' (ODNB). This is his history and description of Orissa or Odisha, a state in eastern India on the Bay of Bengal which includes the famous Hindu temple of Jagannath, which gave us the word juggernaut.

         British Empire Throughout the World Exhibited in One View

      A. Fullarton & Co. Edinburgh, London & Dublin [c.1872] - Lithograph 425 x 530 mm A fine example of one of the most sought-after Victorian maps of the British Empire, engraved by John Bartholomew Jnr for Archibald Fullarton's Royal Illustrated Atlas of the Modern World. The map shows the British Empire just before its zenith, encompassing colonial holdings in Ireland, Canada, the Caribbean and South America, West Africa and the Cape, India and the East Indies, Hong Kong, Australia, New Zealand, and Oceania. As is customary, Imperial possessions are coloured red and engraved in bold. Sea coasts and borders outside British dominion are coloured green, except Africa, perhaps suggestive of the imperial ambitions of the various European powers at the time. Above and below the map are a series of vignettes engraved by Thom, depicting the various peoples of the Empire. Along the top, Aboriginal Australians stand behind a group of settlers, while American frontiersmen speak to a group of First Nations people described in the inscription as 'copper coloured.' In the bottom border are representatives of the Raj and British China, a group of British sailors, a Scotsman, a gentleman and lady, a cavalryman with his horse and sabre, and native peoples of Cape Colony (South Africa). In the top right and left corners, tables feature extensive data for the populations and area in square miles of British possessions across the globe. The Royal Illustrated Atlas of the Modern World was first published as a single atlas in 1864, having been issued as 27 individual parts from 1854 to 1862. The majority of its maps were engraved by Bartholomew, featuring highly decorative vignettes of peoples and places. The atlas is significant for being the last highly decorative atlas to be published in Britain, as Victorian imperial ambitions had resulted in a renewed focus on accuracy rather than aesthetic in the creation of maps. The atlas went through numerous different editions, making dating of individual maps difficult. The majority of Fullarton's maps of the British Empire date throughout the period from 1864 to 1872, the dates of each edition usually estimated by the absence or appearance of various Australian states. Unusually, all known copies of the British Empire map feature a slim territorial holding in Papua New Guinea, though annexation of the region by Queensland did not formally take place until 1883, some 20 years after the publication of the first of Fullarton's maps. John Bartholomew & Son was founded by John Bartholomew Senior (1805 - 1861) in 1826. Initially the firm printed maps for external companies, though under John Bartholomew Junior and his son John George Bartholomew, the company achieved much greater success after making the decision to commission and print their own map series. In particular, the firm was responsible for the Times Survey Atlas of the World (1922) and successive Times Atlases. Archibald Fullarton and Company were a Glasgow based publisher operating towards the end of the nineteenth century. The company produced a number of atlases, and books containing maps, including Fullarton's Parliamentary Gazetteer Of England And Wales and The Royal Illustrated Atlas, Of Modern Geography. These publications featured attractively decorated maps, with small vignette views of local interest surrounding the engraved map. Condition: Central vertical fold as issued. Minor foxing and time toning to edges of sheet. Minor staining to surface of map, particularly to the east of Tasmania and above the vignette at the bottom right corner.

Various sizes. VICTIM OF A FRENCH PRIVATEER. This is a fascinating collection chronicling an episode of the "Quasi-War" between the US and France. The Barque 'Mary" which hailed out of Portsmouth, New Hampshire, was attacked and boarded off the coast of Savannah, Georgia. An article in "The Balance and Columbian Repository, No. 28, Vol. 14, July 9, 1805," reported the harrowing events as told by the ship's Master, William Balch, "…our crew were ordered on board the privateer, and threatened with flogging from the captain down to the boy. One of the hands was brought to the gun, with a rope around his neck... The Captain was also threatened, and they were on the point of lashing his hands when the boat came alongside with the money….they robbed us of...almost every thing they could lay their hands on and whatever they could not take away they destroyed…leaving scarce enough for our subsistence." Documents include: 1. Memorial Petition of the heirs of ship owner Edward Cutts and Ship's Master, George Balch, to the "Honorable Board of Commissioners appointed under the act of congress…," notarized and dated 3rd day of January, 1833, detailing the attack on the Mary and an account of money and cargo stolen. It reads in part: "That on the close of the same day of said vessel's departure from Jamaica… a small sail appeared to the eastward which proved to be a privateer and in chase of said Barque…the said privateer came up with and fired a shot over said Barque, hoisted French colors and ordered the Captain of said Barque to send his boat or board of said privateer or they would sink the Barque." Edward Cutts (1763-1824) was a Portsmouth merchant and ship owner, and the son of Capt. Samuel Cutts and Anna (Holyoke). He served as a selectman, representative of the legislature, collector of revenue, and Justice of the Peace for Rockingham County. 2. Original Field Protest, dated 1805, which reads in part: "Vessel in passage from Jamaica to Portsmouth - boarded by French privateers 21st May 1805, robbed of…$2,250 in species.. 3. Autograph Letter, Signed (Henry W. Kinsman), reading in part: "The Commissioners on French Claims meet at Washington on the third Monday (the 21st) of October next, at which time it is necessary to substantiate your claim." Henry Willis Kinsman (1803-1859) graduated from Dartmouth College in 1822, and read law with Daniel Webster (1782-1852), with whom he was a partner in 1826. Kinsman represented Boston in the State Legislature, from 1833-1835. 4. Policy of Assurance underwritten by William Gardner, insuring Edward Cutts of Portsmouth for the sum of "Three thousand Dollars on the Barque Mary, at & from Bristol (in Great Britain) to her port of delivery in the United States - with liberty to go for Salt." William Gardner (1751-1834) was a frequent underwriter who collaborated with other individuals to insure ships. Gardner began his career in the mercantile trade as an apprentice to Joshua Wentworth. He did commissary work during the Revolution and after the war was appointed Loan and Pension officer of New Hampshire by George Washington. He was replaced by John Pierce during the John Adams administration but was later reappointed by Thomas Jefferson. 5. Memorandum of a Card Presented to the Hon. Simon Cameron, Chairman of the Senate Committee on Foreign Affairs, reading in part: I am asked to state in brief the strongest point of fact or argument in support of the Bill now pending for the relief of our citizens who suffered from french Spoliation on their commerce, between the 1st of January 1792, and July 31, 1801. And I answer thus… Agency of French Spoliation Claims…January 15, 1872." James Hyman Causten, Sr. (1788-1874) came from a merchant family of baltimore. A Naval veteran of the War of 1812, Causten began his legal career as claims agent for for French Spoliation in 1826. 6. Senate Bill S. 101, "A Bill to provide for the ascertainment and satisfaction of claims of American citizens for spoliations committed by the French prior to the thirty-first day of July, one thousand eight hundred and one." Voted on and passed to a second reading in the 1st Session of the 31st Congress. 7. Senate Act H.R. 117, "Read, and passed to a second reading and ordered to be printed… An act to provide for the ascertainment of claims of American citizens or spoliations committed by the French prior to July 31, 1801." H.R. 117 was vetoed by President Franklin Pierce February 17, 1855.

         122 eigenh. Briefe m. Unterschrift.

      Jerusalem, Rom u.a., 1848-1872. - Giuseppe Valerga studierte am Albenga Seminar und an der Sapienza Universität von Rom und empfing am 17. Januar 1836 die Priesterweihe. Er war für die Sacra Congregatio de Propaganda Fide tätig, insbesondere kümmerte er sich um die Chaldäisch-Katholische Kirche. Papst Pius IX. ernannte ihn 1847 zum Patriarchen von Jerusalem, dem einzigen katholischen Patriarchen im Osten, welcher dem römischen Ritus angehörte. Die Bischofsweihe wurde ihm am 10. Oktober 1847 durch den Pontifex selbst gespendet. Es ist überliefert dass der Papst hierbei über den gewaltigen Bart des Priesters staunte und diesbezüglich äußerte: „Schon dieser Bart allein verdient eine ganz besondere Auszeichnung!". Von 1847 bis zu seinem Tode 1872 war er zudem Großmeister des Ritterordens vom Heiligen Grab. Er starb an den Folgen einer Typhuserkrankung und wurde in der Kirche des Patriarchats beigesetzt. - Die vorliegende Korrespondenz behandelt sowohl lokal Ereignisse als auch weitreichende politische und kirchliche Entwicklungen. Zur Sprache kommt dabei u.a. auch der Besuch Kaiser Franz Josephs im Heiligen Land (November 1869), bei dem Valerga allerdings wegen seiner Teilnahme am 1. Vatikanischen Konzil nicht persönlich anwesend sein konnte. - Der Empfänger der auf Italienisch abgefassten Briefe ist Jacques (Jacob) Mislin (1807-1878). Der aus ärmlichen Verhältnissen stammende Mislin konnte dank seines Onkels an der berühmten Lehranstalt von Porrentruy im Schweizer Kanton Bern studieren, wo er nicht viel später auch selbst unterrichten sollte. Der 1830 zum Priester geweihte kath. Theologe wurde 1836 auf Vermittlung des Grafen von Bombelle an den Wiener Hof berufen, wo er einer der Lehrer der Söhne von Erzherzog Franz Karl und Erzherzogin Sophie wurde und damit sowohl den zukünftigen Kaiser Franz Joseph wie auch Erzherzog Ferdinand Maximilian (später Kaiser Max von Mexiko) unterrichtete (u.a. auch in Erdkunde). Vor der Revolution von 1848 unternahm Mislin eine Pilgerreise von Wien über Budapest und Konstantinopel nach Jersusalem. Der danach erschienene Reisebericht wurde in mehrere Sprachen übersetzt und mehrfach nachgedruckt. In den folgenden Jahren leitete er die Bibliothek am Hof der Herzogin von Parma, Erzherzogin Marie Louise, wurde zum Abt von St. Maria von Deg (Ungarn), geheimer Kämmerer u. Hausprälat Papst Pius' XI., Apostolischer Pronotar, Kanoniker der Kathedrale von Großwardein, Träger zahlr. Orden (u.a. von Spanien, Parma u. des Ritterordens vom Heiligen Grab zu Jerusalem) sowie Mitglied zahlr. Akademien. Der Verfasser zahlr. Publikationen und Vertraute des belgischen Königs und des Grafen von Chambord blieb nach der Rückkehr von seiner Pilgerreise in Wien, wo er weiterhin in persönlichem Kontakt mit dem Kaiserhaus stand. - In einem numerierten, von Mislin eigenh. beschrifteten Papierumschlag. - Sprache: Italienisch Gewicht in Gramm: 500 [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Distribution of Australasian volutes.Sydney, Alexander W. Douglas, 1872. 8vo. Contemporary blue paper wrappers.

      WorldCat (6 copies, all but 1 in Australia); not in Ferguson. English-language accounts of the distribution of 48 species of sea snails of the genus Voluta around Australia, New Zealand, Tasmania, New Guinea, the Solomon Islands and other southwest Pacaific islands, sometimes with descriptive notes on variations in form or colouration. He also comments on the beauty of some species. Several species discussed were newly discovered by Cox himself. With a 4-page introductory note, a table of contents and an alphabetical index. Writing in 1872, Cox already notes that the once common Voluta magnifica , whose shell can grow to about 30 cm in length, has been so highly prized by collectors that it is now hard to find. He also describes several other spieces as formerly abundent but now rare. With the last (blank) and first leaves foxed, and an old vertical fold through the leaves, but still in good condition. The wrappers are foxed and waterstained, with the spine tattered. A remarkable record of the distribution of 48 species of Australasian sea snails in the mid-19th centruy.
