        Epitome of the ancient history of Japan,: Including a guide book,

      Nagasaki, Japan: 'Rising Sun' Office, Nagasaki, 1876. First Edition. Hardcover. Acceptable/Fair. An ex-library copy in a library binding, stamps & stickers throughout. Errata slip tipped to the last page. A classic ands scarce "Lost Tribe of Israel" theory, Illustrations of the Epitome... was published separately at a later date. From Wikipedia: "Nicholas McLeod (fl. 1868â??1889), in some accounts called Norman McLeod, was a native of the Isle of Skye, Scotland known for his theory that the Japanese people descended from the Lost Tribes of Israel.Tudor Parfitt describes McLeod as...a Scot who started his career in the herring industry before he ended up in Japan as a missionary...[1]Beyond that is very little known for certain about him except that he published a book in 1878 in Nagasaki called Epitome of the ancient history of Japan (cover title: Japan and the Lost Tribes of Israel) and another in Kyoto under the title Illustrations to the Epitome of the ancient history of Japan, including illustrations to the guide book.[2]The thesis of these extraordinary books was that the holy class of Japan is descended from the Lost Tribes of Israel. He claimed that the first known king of Japan was called Osee and came to the throne in 730 B.C., identifying him with Hoshea, the last king of Israel, who died in 722 B.C. The books contain extensive comparisons of the religious rituals of Judaism and Shintoism as evidence of the links between ancient Israel and Japan.[3]McLeod dedicated the book Epitome of the ancient history of Japan published in 1878 to "Rve. William Mackenzie (Late of North Leith Free Church, Scotland)".[4] According to Zvi Ben-Dor Benite, MacLeod had been a missionary who spent decades in Japan and Korea "searching for the true Israelites".[5] The following passage is an example from the book in which McLeod draws correlations between his observations on Japan and the fulfillment of biblical prophecy.The civilized race of the Aa. Inus, the Tokugawa and the Machi No Hito of the large towns, by dwelling in the tent or tabernacle shaped houses first erected by Jin Mu Tenno, have fulfilled Noah's prophecy regarding Japhet, "He shall dwell in the tents of Shem."(McLeod, 1878. p. 7).

      Hi, I recently purchases a rebind in fabulous condition, inside the binding were 1876 through to 1878 but it was in such good condition I decided to split them out and had facsimile covers added to them hence, and to keep them together ... This lot is a set of three Original Wisdens 1876 , 1877 1878 , Paperbacks with facsimile spines and covers in very good condition. The books are in very good condition, the pages are very clean and pretty much unmarked. There is a touch of foxing to the 1877 but it is only slight and to the odd page, the other two have minimal foxing. Although it used to be rebound there is not much trimming with nice margins. A fabulous set of 3 early Wisdens at a great price. Please see the large pictures. More available on request. Buy-it-now. More Photos on request. Payment: Card, Paypal, Cheque or BACS

Mit 3 mehrfach gefalteten Profiltafeln, 4 (2 mehrfach gefalteten) lithographierten Karten und 2 gefalteten Tabellen. Moderner Halbleinwandband im Stil der Zeit. Einzige Ausgabe. - Hellwag (1827-1882) wurde 1875 als Nachfolger Gerwigs leitender Oberingenieur der Gotthard-Bahn. Sein in vorliegendem Band detailliert beschriebenes Projekt der Bahnstrecke fand der höheren Kosten wegen nicht die Zustimmung der Bahngesellschaft und führte zu juristischen Auseinandersetzungen, in denen Hellwag obsiegte. Die Richtigkeit seiner Arbeit lässt sich auch daraus entnehmen, dass die fragliche Strecke später im Wesentlichen nach seinen Plänen gebaut wurde. - Stempel auf Titel, sonst sauber und sehr gut erhalten

        The Movements and Habits of Climbing Plants

      John Murray, London 1876 - Second Thousand. 8vo; viii,208,32(publisher's catalogue)pp, with 13 text woodcuts. Original publisher's royal green pebbled cloth, covers paneled in blind (arches-style), spine lettered and decorated in gilt, chocolate-brown end papers, period owner's stamp top of half title. A superlative example, binding clean, tight. and unmarred; text fresh and bright, barring light foxing to endpapers and several pages within text. Freeman 837. Originally published in the ninth volume of the Journal of the Linnean Society, in 1865. Our copy is the first hardcover edition (second edition overall), second thousand. Only 500 copies were printed, making this, Freeman believes, "probably the smallest issue of any [John] Murray Darwin" title. Darwin described the origins and writing of this book in his autobiography, where he noted: "Some of the adaptations displayed by climbing plants are as beautiful as those by Orchids for ensuring cross-fertilisation." N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
