"The work encompasses 113 anecdotes and 33 'pand' (precepts or maxims), often interspersed with little poems. Many anecdotes contain rules of conduct and practical advice for life, in others the author treats of everyday events and points out failures of contemporary society, such as hypocritical clerics, pompous judges, corrupt officials, and crooked tradesmen. In his maxims, the author discusses the state and its ruler, who is above all law and moral confines. Notoriously, some anecdotes feature drunkards, vagabonds, pedophiles, and unfaithful wives; others describe in detail sultry scenes of the kind that must have been popular at the Shah's court" (cf. KNLL). - Binding rubbed. Interior partially browned and with tears; several repairs (some with tape). Rare; only 3 copies in OCLC (Edinburgh, Göttingen, Berlin). KNLL XIII, 771.

Moltissime incisioni nel testo in tutte le annate. Insieme di questa rivista raro a trovarsi con questa corposità. L'Esploratore di Manfredo Camperio nasce nel luglio 1877, e continua con questa intestazione sino al 1885. «L'Esploratore» diviene dal 1881 organo ufficiale della Società d'esplorazione commerciale in Africa, il cui scopo è quello di raccogliere, a mezzo di spedizioni esploratrici, notizie positive sugli scambi di merci che possono intervenire fra l'Italia e l'Africa - in ispecie con i paesi Nord-est e di predisporre tutto quanto può agevolare e rendere sicuri regolari e continui rapporti commerciali fra le due regioni studiando all?uopo le vie più opportune e stabilendo stazioni e uffici nei paesi esplorati? All'interno del periodico vengono riportati numerosi articoli, corrispondenze, relazioni mensili della Società d'esplorazione commerciale in Africa, illustrazioni, carte geografiche nonché lo Statuto della Società d'esplorazione commerciale in Africa, le assemblee generali annuali, il rendiconto, le attività promosse dalla Società (gite, convegni, mostre, spedizioni) e il discorso di presentazione della Società (Società geografica italiana: discorso di inaugurazione, aprile 1879). Di enorme interesse le relazioni originali che vengono pubblicate quali quella sulla spedizione Bianchi - Antonelli alla Scioa e in Abissinia, al viaggio del dottor Junker nell'Africa equatoriale, le peripezie della spedizione Cecchi. Molte sono anche le memorie di Gessi in Sudan alle prese con la rivolta Mahadista. Sono relazionate le varie spedizioni organizzate dalla stessa Società di Esplorazione Commerciale, capitanate da Bianchi, Casati, ecc.Anche nel momento in cui il giornale cambia testata e perde la direzione del Camperio, il taglio delle relazioni e gli intenti politici di base rimarranno gli stessi, in un'Italia che man mano prenderà sempre più l'aspetto di una aspirante potenza coloniale. Cessò le pubblicazioni nel 1910.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. ("Murad"). Stockholm, 6. I. 1881.

      1881. 4 SS. auf gefalt. Doppelblatt. Kl.-8vo. Beiliegend eh. adressierter Umschlag. In seinem Todesjahr, an den Mediziner (und Verfasser von Beethoven-Erinnerungen) Gerhard von Breuning (1813-92): "Werter Freund! Vielen Dank für Ihre freundlichen Zeilen die mir große Freude bereitet haben; sind sie mir doch ein greifbares Zeichen Ihrer unverändert freundschaftlichen Gesinnung für mich. Und mit meinen herzlichen Neujahrswünschen für Sie und die liebenswürdigen Ihrigen mein herzliches Vivat - oder vielmehr vivant crescant - dem Großpapa u. den Eltern des zukünftigen - wie soll ich nur sagen, nun, Steuerzalers [!] Georg. Was Sie in betreff meines teueren Edhem Paschas sagen, befriedigt mich sehr; leider scheine ich in seinem Gedächtnis sehr verblaßt zu sein; seine Korrespondenztauben verraten seit einigem etwas lahme Schwingen. Nun, Gebot der Zeit und naturgemäßer Lauf der Dinge! Meiner Frau hat die Operation nur ganz momentan geholfen, Sie wissen wie kezerisch ich über die Fakultät - ne vous en déplaise - urteile. Sanat non curat bleibt mein Axiom. Wer nicht an der Krankheit zu Grunde zu gehen Zeit hat, erliegt der Kur. Ich erfahre das an mir, obschon ich des Beweises nicht bedurft hätte - den Bösen bin ich scheinbar los, die Bösen sind in Wirklichkeit geblieben. Schade daß mir hier kein lateinisches Citat einfällt um damit zu flunkern u. zu imponiren. Pegasus frißt im Stall das Gnadenbrot, ich werde alt [...]". - Der zum Islam konvertierte österreichische Schriftsteller und Diplomat in osmanischen Diensten Franz von Werner publizierte unter dem Namen "Murad Efendi" Dramen und Gedichtsammlungen wie auch landeskundliche Berichte aus der Türkei. 1877 war er zum Ministerresidenten an den Höfen von Den Haag und von Stockholm ernannt worden, 1880 zum dortigen bevollmächtigten Minister und außerordentlichen Gesandten.

      This is a beautifully produced manuscript presentation book with fine hand illuminated hand painted pages, and finely bound in a full leather binding, the book was presented to William Egerton Garnett-Botfield of Decker Hill Hall near Shifnal Shropshire in 1881 as a token of esteem from his friends on his marriage to Elizabeth Clulow Howard-Mclean of Aston Hall, Shifnal, Shropshire, The folio sized book Book measures 14.5 inches by 12 inches approx., bound in full leather with bevelled edges, elaborately decorated in gilt to upper board, with gilt decoration to both spine and rear board, page edges gilded all-round, gilt decoration to inner board edges, internally features seven finely illuminated pages mounted on thick board, the hand painted illumination work was carried out by Adnitt & Naunton of Shrewsbury, Shropshire, the last two pages bearing the names of well-wishers which include some of the most prominent names of Shropshire dignitaries of the time, the Prime Ministers name Lloyd George has been added in pencil. Apart from some scuffs and surface scratches to the leather, the binding is in good solid condition, internally contents in nice condition. William Egerton Garnett-Botfield was the first born son and heir of the Reverend William Bishton Garnett-Botfield and his wife Sarah Dutton There were six other children in the family besides William Egerton when his father the Reverend William Bishton Garnett inherited the fortune, estate and name of the BOTFIELD family in 1863. Alfred Stanton (September 25, 1850); Walter Dutton (b. June 1, 1854); Charles Ramsay (b. May 7, 1858); Lucy Sophia and Grace Catherine (b. 1853); and Annie Augusta (b. 1857). William Egerton Garnett-Botfield was educated at Christ Church, Oxford. He married Elizabeth Clulow HOWARD-McLEAN, the only child and heir of John Howard McLean of Aston Hall, Salop, on February 24, 1881. Together they had three children---two sons and a daughter: William McLean GARNETT-BOTFIELD, born December 29, 1881, who married twice but left no children or heirs. Alfred Clulow FitzGerald GARNETT-BOTFIELD, born June 16, 1892 was killed during World War I at the age of 23, and was unmarried. Helen Stella Alexandrina GARNETT-BOTFIELD married Frederick Feilden CORBETT-WINDER on January 7, 1919 and had one daughter Riba Clulow CORBETT-WINDER. In the 1906 edition of Bye-Gones, we find the following obituary notice for William Egerton Garnett-Botfield: It is with great regret that we record the death, which took place at his seat, The Hut, Bishop's Castle, last evening week, of Mr. William Egerton Garnett-Botfield, one of the best known and most esteemed of Shropshire gentlemen. Mr. Garnett-Botfield was the eldest son of the late Rev. William Bishton Garnett-Botfield, who assumed the additional surname of Botfield by Royal licence in 1863 on succeeding to the estates of his uncle, Mr. William Botfield, of Decker Hill, Shifnal. Born at Findon, Sussex, on August 16, 1849, he was educated privately and at Christ Church, Oxford. he married in 1881, Elizabeth Clulow, only daughter of the late Mr. John Howard McLean, of Aston, Hall, Shifnal, who, with three children---Mr. W. McLean Garnett- Botfield, Miss Alexandria Garnett-Botfield, and Mr. Clulow Garnett-Botfield---survives him. He was placed on the Commission of the Peace for the county of Salop in 1872, and later became a magistrate for Montgomeryshire also. On the formation of the County Council of Salop he became a councillor for the Bishop's Castle Division, and remained their representative until 1904, when he was raised to the aldermanic bench. He had a long connection with the borough of Bishop's Castle. He was elected councillor in 1885 at the first election under Sir Charles Dilke's Act; alderman in 1889, and six times---1888-9, 1896-97, 1898-99, and 1901-93, he served as Mayor. He was president of the local auxiliary of the Bible Society, the welfare of which he had very much at heart; and he turned a literary bent to good account for the benefit of local societies by reading many informing papers on subjects of general interest. He was president of the Mutal Improvement Society, and of the football Club, and everything that tended to the development of the young life of the neighbourhood received his generous support. He was a member of the Board of Guardians, and one of the managers of the Council Schools, after having served for many years on the School Board. He took a great interest in the Agricultural Society, and served as its president, and the Society owes much of its success to his strenuous support. As a landlord, he was one of the most considerate, and was held in much regard and esteem by all his tenants. He was a Fellow of the Geological Society, and had been president of the Caradoc and Severn Valley Field Club since 1893. His services in this connection, as in all others with which he was identified, were marked by that tact and sweetness which endeared him to all whose privilege it was to know him. He had travelled a good deal, especially in countries round the Eastern Mediterranean, Switzerland and Norway. Mr. Garnett-Botfield was fond of shooting, an ardent angler, and some years ago hunted a pack of beagles. Scientifically, his strong point was geology. He was a keen lover of nature in all her aspects; and found supreme delight in observing the common things of his own pretty country side. An obituary for William Egerton Garnett-Botfield also appeared in the April 7, 1906 edition of the Market Drayton Advertiser. It provides additional details about his life and further support for his benevolent character: We regret to have to announce the decease of Mr. William Egerton Garnett-Botfield, J.P. of Decker Hill, Shifnal, and of The Hut, Bishop's Castle, who died after a short illness, at his last-named residence, on Tuesday last, in his fifty-eighth year. The deceased gentleman took a keen interest in public matters: he was six times elected Mayor of Bishop's Castle, and was a member of the Salop County Council. He was a Liberal in politics. Every philanthropic movement had his sympathy and support. He was married a little over twenty-five years ago to Miss Howard McLean, daughter of Mrs Howard-McLean of Aston Hall, Shifnall; and, on the recent occasion of the silver wedding, the people of Shifnal presented to them a massive silver rose bowl and an address, as a token of the affection and esteem in which they and their respective families were held. The deceased gentleman, who was born on August 16th, 1849, was the eldest son of the Rev. William Bishton Garnett-Botfield, M.A., of Decker Hill; his mother was Sarah, wife [daughter] of William Dutton, Esq. Halewood House, Lancashire. The Rev. W. B. Garnett-Botfield was the eldest son of the Rev. William Garnett of Haughton Hall, Cheshire, and Rector of Church Tilston, who was married to [Elizabeth] Sophia, only daughter and heiress of John Bishton, of Kilsall House, near Shifnall. This Rev. William [Bishton] Garnett, grandfather [father] of Mr. W. E. Garnett-Botfield was authorised by royal license, dated October 30th 1863, in compliance with the last will and testament of Mr. William Botfield, of Decker Hill, to take and henceforth use the name of Botfield, in addition to and after that of Garnett, and to bear the arms of Botfield quarterly with that of Garnett. For many generations the Garnett family was settled in the parishes of Bunbury, Acton, and Nantwich, Cheshire. Mrs. Garnett-Botfield survives the deceased gentleman, and he is succeeded in the ownership of the estates by his son, Mr. McLean Garnett-Botfield, who came of age about twelve months ago. The funeral took place yesterday (Friday) at Bishop's Castle, at four o'clock. [From the Market Drayton Advertiser, April 7, 1906]
