WILLKIE, Wendell L..
New York 1943, Simon. Black cloth, very good, end paper maps 206p., b.w. photos, 14 x 21 cm. FIRST EDITION THE AUTHOR'S SIGNED PRESENTATION COPY

WENDELL WILLKIE: Was the Republican candidate who tired to to be President of the United States in 1940: ... In 1942, after losing the presidential election to Franklin Delano Roosevelt in 1940, Willkie traveled around the world in a four engine converted Consolidated bomber named Gulliver. He traveled 31,000 miles and took 49 days for this circumnavigation of the earth and in the course of the travel met with world leaders, pleading the case for international peacekeeping after the war. * In this book Wendell Willkie gives a highly personal account of his meetings with Stalin, Chiang Kai-shek, General Montgomery, General Chennault and other United Nations leaders. He tells of his talks with prime ministers and kings, and with teachers, soldiers, librarians, factory workers, and farmers around the world. He reports a great awakening that is going on among the peoples of the world and his deep conviction that the United Nations must learn to work together now, while they fight, if they hope to live together after the war is over. * Willkie met with General Claire L. Chennault, commander of the A.V.G. [American Volunteer Group] aka "FLYING TIGERS." In 1942, Willkie visited Kunming the seat of the home base of Chennault, and Chennault presented a letter to Willkie dated Oct 8, 1942 for hand-delivery to President Roosevelt, outlining just how the Japanese could be defeated in China. * From Wikipedia: Wendell Lewis Willkie [February 18, 1892 -October 8, 1944] was a corporate lawyer in the United States and the Republican Party nominee for the 1940 presidential election, despite having never held a prior elected political office. * Although Willkie in 1940 received more votes than any previous GOP candidate [22.3 million votes], he lost to Franklin D. Roosevelt. * On July 23, 1941, Willkie urged unlimited aid to the United Kingdom in its struggle against Nazi Germany. That same year he traveled to Britain and the Middle East as Roosevelt's personal representative, and in 1942 visited the USSR and China in the same capacity. In 1943, Willkie wrote ONE WORLD [this book] a plea for international peacekeeping after the war. * CHINA-U.S.A. RELATIONS WITH MADAME CHIANG KAI-SHEK According to Gardner Cowles publisher of the Des Moines Register, Willkie's visit to the Republic of China led to a bizarre consequence: Madame Chiang Kai-shek, the hugely ambitious co-ruler and First Lady of China, developed the idea that she could seduce and marry Willkie, use China's wealth to help him become president in 1944, and thus become the most powerful woman in the world. Cowles claimed that the affair was consummated in China, and that on a visit to the U.S. a few months later, she told him "If Wendell could be elected, then he and I would rule the world. I would rule the Orient and Wendell would rule the western world." He pointedly did not dismiss the possibility that Willkie, had he been nominated, might have accepted her highly improbable offer on some level. Extracted from Wikipedia. * BIBLIOGRAPHY: Claire L. Chennault: WAY OF A FIGHTER. Several Willkie references and a letter to Willkie by Chennault. * Color scans can be sent by email.

New York 1943, Simon & Schuster. Stiff wrs., A4 size, very good, 86p., map, essays by this prsidential hopeful. With essays on China, Chiang Kai-Shek, Opening up China's West &c

In 1942, after losing the presidential election to Franklin Delano Roosevelt in 1940, Willkie traveled around the world in a four engine converted Consolidated bomber named Gulliver.

Roosevelt in an Electoral College landslide: 449 to 82, carrying ten states. * After the election Willkie became one of Roosevelt's most unlikely allies. To the chagrin of many in his party, Willkie called for greater national support for controversial Roosevelt initiatives such as the Lend-Lease Act and embarked on a new campaign against isolationism in America. * On July 23, 1941, he urged unlimited aid to the United Kingdom in its struggle against Nazi Germany. That same year he traveled to Britain and the Middle East as Roosevelt's personal representative, and in 1942 visited the USSR and China in the same capacity. In 1943, Willkie wrote One World, a plea for international peacekeeping after the war. Extremely popular, millions of copies of the book sold. In 1941, Willkie helped to establish Freedom House together with Eleanor Roosevelt. * BIBLIOGRAPHY: Claire L. Chennault: WAY OF A FIGHTER.

STEIN, M. Aurel..
London 1928, Oxford. Rose cloth, 4 vol. set: vol. 1-2 text, vol. 3 plates & plans, vol. 4 maps, bibliography, unclipped mended dust jackets in mylar protectors, 25.5 x 34 cm., brillantly bright superb clean copy. FIRST & ONLY EDITION

AUTHOR'S SIGNED FIRST & ONLY LIMITED EDITION OF 765 COPIES **** FIRST & ONLY LIMITED EDITION OF 765 SETS ** A monumental work, well illustrated study on the trade route countries of Central Asia. Always a rare set when complete. * "With descriptive lists of antiques by F.H. Andrews & F.M.G. Lorimer; & appendices by J. Allan et al." Volume 1, 2: text, 1159 pages, with text illustrations. Vol. 3: 137 plates, 59 plans. Vol. 4: 51 color folding maps in matching rose cloth case, with index tabs. ******* M. AUREL STEINS COPY: This is a very nice copy which was likely owned by the author as hia personal letter was found used as a book mark in one of the volumes. The letter is 19 x 25.5 cm., plain toned white paper, written by Sir Aurel Stein using a very wide fountain pen and blue ink. The letter is in remarkable condition and has been folded twice, but now is quite flat and solid. * WITH A VERY RARE HOLOGRAPHIC LETTER FROM AUREL STEIN: "At Highbroom, Ewhurst, Guilford: February 15, 1925 Dear Sirs, Thanks for your letter of the 9th inst. and the account rendered with it. I note in the account of entry of 10/6 charged for the Return of Income Tax for the years 1922-3 and 1923-4. As I was absent from the United Kingdom during the whole of these financial years, no Income Tax was due from the royalties received in these years on my behalf. I accordingly request the favour of an explanation as to how this charge arises against my account, and hope for a refund of the amount. Yours faithfully A. Stein" * Perhaps Aurel Stein got his reply from the Income Tax office and or this was a copy of his letter. It was found lost as a "book mark" found in this set. A lovely insight to Stein, and his thoughts on how the British government had wrongly charged him Income Tax. A lovely holographic letter, written in pen and ink, in his usual and steady hand. Stein letters are rare and seldom found on the market. ******** FIRST & ONLY LIMITED EDITION OF 765 COPIES. We understand that this set was issued in a Limited Edition of only 765 complete copies, the balance of 250 sets were incomplete as they lacked 48 maps. * THE MAPS AND MAP BOX VOLUME: The matching map box is also in bound in rose cloth, 25.5 x 34 cm., and is 5 cm. thick. There is some minor and usual wear to the upper and lower part of the hinged flap, with some old mends. The contents consist of 47 maps each with white index tabs, plus 4 other maps index tabs: "A,B,C,D," and the index, complete as issued. **** CONDITION: This is the brightest and freshest copy we have ever had in our 45 years of tenure. The cloth of the main three volumes is nearly flawless, with bright rose color, brilliant gold stamping on the spines and front covers. There is no scuffing whatsoever, and the head/tails of the spines are fresh with a few of the usual wrinkles expected. The joints are strong, tight and the book appears to be by and large unused. There are a few bumped corners: vol. 1: the front upper right corner has a very small bump; vol. 2: faint and very tiny hint of a bump on front lower right, else none; vol. 3: front right and left, and rear corners tiny bump, front lower right a larger bump, please see scans posted to our website for photographs. * DUST JACKETS: The set of three volumes all have the original dust jackets each protected in mylar covers. There was some of the usual wear to the unprotected dust jackets, and some restoration with matching paper was performed from the inside to stabilize the tears and small missing pieces. Overall the jackets are nice with some repairs to the upper and lower spine as well as corners and a few other spots here and there. Finding this set with the dust jacket is exceptionally rare and unusual. The set if ever found most always lacks the dust jackets. *** . * BIBLIOGRAPHY: Stein 1862-1943.

Manuscript; Kingdom of Hungary
1715
Eighteenth-Century Manuscript Relating to the Constitutional Law of Hungary [Manuscript]. [Kingdom of Hungary]. Observationes In Tripartitum Opus Juris Consuetudinarii Inclyti Regum Hungariae per Commissionem Systematicam in Arlo 24. 1715 Fundatum hoc 1717 Anno Posony Celebratum, Elaborate. [Arlo, Hungary, 1715-1717, 1726]. [101, 9 blank, 32 pp.] Folio (12" x 8"). Contemporary paneled calf, ties lacking. Moderate rubbing to boards, heavier rubbing to extremities with wear to spine and corners, rear hinge partially cracked, two leaves at rear of text detached, occasional worming to margins with no loss to text, contemporary armorial bookplate to front pastedown. Some toning to interior, text in neat secretarial hand. The second group of notes, 32 pp., are dated 1726. * Two sets of student notes on the Tripartitum. Compiled in 1514 by Istvan Werboczy [c.1465-1541], a Hungarian jurist and statesman, this collection of early customary laws, though never incorporated formally, was regarded as the second pillar of the Hungarian constitution. It was a de facto law-book of Hungary until 1848. According to the doctrine of the Holy Crown, which appeared in the Tripartitum, the king and the legally equal noblemen formulated the "corpse of the Holy Crown," which symbolized the Hungarian state. This manuscript is one such effort, in the early eighteenth century, to coordinate the Tripartitum with Hungary's constitutional statutes.

Larry Xavier Blumer
Tate Publishing & Enterprises,Jan 2009
ISBN 9781606963340

NEUBUCH! 229x152x26 mm

Have you ever noticed how the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke contain much of the same information Because the Gospel of John stands apart from the rest of the Gospels, reading them may be confusing. New author Larry Blumer has provided an in-depth study of the Gospels in his new book, The Kingdom of Heaven is at Hand. The Gospel events are placed in chronological order so the reader can see them unfold plainly. The commentary includes: . Journey maps that depict Jesus' travels. . Commentary notes which give informative background information, explaining customs of the day. . 'Application Today' sections that help the reader apply the lesson from the event to their life. From the birth announcements of John the Baptist and Jesus to the Sermon on the Mount, The Kingdom of Heaven is at Hand provides a concise study on the Gospels. Filled with practical insight, sound biblical doctrine, and much needed application, this is a must read for every serious student of the Bible. AUTHOR BIO Larry Blumer is an Electrical Engineer and active member of the Lutheran Church and has spent many years teaching adult bible classes. The idea for this book began while studying to become a Bethel Bible teacher. This book was developed while teaching an adult Bible class on the Gospels.

NEUBUCH! 216x140x17 mm

0 mother of spite, Speak the last of that curse and imprison me quite, In the husk of a brute that no pity may name The man that I was, that no kindred may claim- The monster that hunters shun in their flight, The men in their horror, the women in fright. A horse a horse a kingdom for a horse In this, as in many other sentences of the great dramatist, there is more philosophy than at first meets the eye. No doubt if Richard when the tide of battle turned against him at Bosworth Field, could have procured such a steed as that which carried the renowned Dick Turpin to York, he might, like Turpin, have effected his flight to that city, and there, as he was highly esteemed, he might not onIy have escaped from his adversary but have raised such an army among his northern retainers, by whom he was sincerely beloved, as would have turned the tide of war in his favour but for want of a horse he was overtaken and slain. No doubt the Egyptians, who were the first to use the horse for military purposes, won many of their tributary kingdoms by means of their cavalry. The success of the Spaniards in Peru was in no small degree owing to their cavalry, as the natives, who thought the horse and his rider were one animal, became alarmed, and fled at the very sight of the cavalry. It is therefore, no exaggeration to say that kingdoms have been won and lost by means of the horse. King Robert Bruce, through a little strategy and the fleetness of his horse, escaped the machinations of the traitor Comyn, and saved his life, and afterwards won the crown and kingdom of Scotland. A friend of Bruces-who was residing at the Court of Edward, King of England-ascertained that a plot had been concocted to murder Bruce in his castle at Lochmaben and fearing to send any written Centaur. communication, Iest it should be intercepted, forwarded to Bruce a pair of spurs and a purse of gold. Bruce knew that the spurs meant flight, and the purse, means for his journey but the ground was covered with snow, and if he were to fly, the conspirators could easily trace him. He however got the blacksmith to invert his horses shoes, so that by the prints of the horses feet upon the snow, it appeared Bruce had returned to his castle instead of having just left it. The ruse succeeded admirably, and Bruce escaped to Dumfries-a town about 8 miles from his castle-where he met the chief conspirator and slew him. At the Battle of Bannockburn, Bruces horse rendered him valuable service in several of the hand-to- hand encounters in which he was on that day engaged. Many instances are on record of monarchs and others being saved through the swiftness, courage, or ingenuity of the horse. Thus we are told, 1st Book of Kings, 20th chapter, and 20th verse-That every one slew his man, and the Syrians fled, and Israel pursued them, and Ben-hadad, the King of Syria, escaped on an horse. The horse has, from the time of the Egyptians to the present day, been intimately associated with man in all his undertakings a work, therefore which will treat of The Horse and its immediate surrounding cannot fail to be both interesting and useful, and such the author trusts his work will prove.....

A UN-Habitat Award. Nairobi to Nanjing. - Hussam Bin Essa Al Khalifa und Howard King:
Hussam Bin Essa Al Khalifa und Howard King:
Bahrain: Private Secretariat Prime Minister's Court, 2009.
174 S., durchgehend illustriert. Fadengehefteter Originalpappband.

Sehr gutes Ex. - At the opening ceremony of the Governing Council Mrs. Anna Tibaijuka, Under-Secretary General of the United Nations, Executive Director UN-Habitat & Director General of the United Nations Office at Nairobi (UNON) officially honoured the selection of His Highness Shaikh Khalifa as the winner of the 2006 Special Citation Habitat Scroll of Honour Mr, President, Distinguished Delegates, Fortunately, we know that all these things are doable. It is not Utopia to fight urban poverty and to eradicate slums. Allow me to demonstrate how and where housing poverty and homelessness has been prevailed upon successfully and in a relatively short period of time, within a lifetime because of vision, good governance, political commitment, care and solidarity with the poor. The winner of the prestigious Special Citation Award of the Habitat Scroll of Honor for year 2006 is His Highness Shaikh Khalifa Bin Salman AI Khalifa, Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Bahrain. As his Special Envoy will further elaborate, Shaikh Khalifa has dedicated his life to deliver sustainable development in his country by fighting poverty and working for all his citizens. We at UN-Habitat have admired and identified his leadership and policies as a best practice in good urban governance to be emulated. We have been working in that country for several years under our urban indicators programme and have collected and analysed reliable first-hand information that living conditions for all have been transformed dramatically. Some might hasten to add that the Prime Minister of \ Bahrain has presided over a country rich in oil. But if we look around, we see many other countries where huge oil and other natural resource endowments and revenues have failed and continue to fail to benefit the common citizen. Instead such rich natural resources have become a source of conflict, and ended up displacing rural residents who are now refugees in sprawling urban slums. In many parts of the world, : notably Africa, natural resources have become a curse rather than a blessing. In Bahrain, it is exactly the opposite. Under the able leadership of Shaikh Khalifa who has been at the helm of his country since 1971 as Prime Minister, the incomes from oil have trickled down to the lowest income levels of society, and resulted in a harmonious society. Please join me in a round of applause to congratulate Shaikh Khalifa for his outstanding achievements that have now brought him this prestigious recognition. In conclusion, UN-Habitat will be pleased to work with the Government of Bahrain in popularizing this approach, and inviting others to emulate this good example! One billion fellow human beings are counting on us. This Governing Council has a moral and ethical obligation not to fail them. Ethical issues apart,-sustainable urbanization is also an economic and environmental imperative without which peace, stability and sustainable development cannot be achieved.... (Vorwort)

London, United Kingdom Routledge 1995
Library stickers and stamps on the spine and on the FEP. Occupational Health: A Practical Guide for Managers examines the reasons why employers should address the health of their workforce. It explores the implication that health issues have for bottom line performance and offers guidelines for developing an effective occupational health policy and associated procedures. The authors are both senior professionals in the field and have a wealth of industrial experience to draw on. They have used their first-hand knowledge to produce a practical introduction to occupatioal health which includes the latest legislative requirements and current recommended practice. Material is presented in an easy-to-read, non-technical format, making the book particularly useful to the reader with no previous knowledge of the field. Short executive summaries at the beginning of each chapter highlight key action points for quick reference, while a more extensive reference section at the end of the book signposts the way to detailed information on specific issues. The book is in four parts. Part one provides an introduction to the history and scope of occupational health, discusses contemporary practice and looks at the legal and organizational factors involved. Part two examines the some of the most common issues in occupational health, including stress management, anti-smoking policies and health promotion. Specific considerations surrounding the employment of women and people with disabilities are dealt within part three. The final part offers a practical approach to two key aspects of health and safety legislation: regulations relating to Display Screen Equipment and the Manual Handling of Loads. Occupational Health: A Practical Guide for Managers is essential reading for occupational health practitioners and all professionals involved in making and implementing health and safety policy. It is also an extremely useful resource for students seeking to gain an understanding of health issues in the workplace No Dust Jacket paperback Government Reference Library

Library sticker on the spine, inside of the cover and on the FEP. Stamp on title page, creasingto the cover and rubbing to the ends. Throughout the 1980s, the National Health Service has been the subject of almost continuous re-organization and constant political debate. Its sheer size and complexity, however, baffled most attempts at systematic description and analysis. This is a guide to the way the NHS works. Based on anthropological research behind the scenes in seven district health authorities, it features first-hand accounts of the age old methods of administration and the new attempts at business-style management. It will be of interest not only to health service professionals and academics in social policy, public administration and health studies, but also to anyone interested in our changing national health service No Dust Jacket paperback Government Reference Library

There are strange goings-on at the Opera House in Ankh-Morpork. A ghost in a white mask is murdering, well, quite a lot of people, and two witches (it really isn't wise to call them "meddling, interfering old baggages"), or perhaps three, take a hand in unravelling the mystery.

MONTAGU, George.
London, J. White (printed by J.S. Hollis, Romsey; supplement by S. Woolmer, Exeter), [1803-] 1808[-ca. 1810].
3 parts in 1 volume. Large 4to (27.5 x 21.5 cm). 20th-century brown half goatskin morocco, marbled sides, with the original wrappers of heavy plain paper bound in. With 3 engraved title-pages (the first two together with 13 figures showing shells), more than 200 figures in 30 engraved plates, showing shells, all drawn and engraved by Eliza Dorville (ca. 1770-1844), Montagu's mistress. With 20 excellent original ink and watercolour drawings of shells (ca. 1801) bound in, along with 4 slips containing 5 engraved figures showing shells. All engraved shell figures coloured by a contemporary hand. [2], XXXVII, [2], [1 blank], 291, [1 blank]; [1], [1 blank], 293-606, [4]; [2], V, [1 blank], 183, [1] pp.

Rare complete set (two parts plus the supplement) of an extensive and thoroughly illustrated account of British shells, here with 20 excellent original watercolour drawings of shells with the species noted in neatly written captions, bound in near the relevant descriptions (4 additional slips contain engravings of shells). The artist who made the inserted watercolour drawings is not named, but one of the shells was found by a certain Miss Pocock on the Hayle Sands below Lelant on the northern coast of Cornwall in the summer of 1801. The twenty original watercolours appear to be drawn in a consistent style on matching wove paper, five show a watermark "1797," one is dated 1801 (another mentions that year, as noted above), and three refer to plates in Donovan, presumably Edward Donovan, <I>The Natural History of British Shells</I>, [1799]-1804 (plates 101, 125 & 134). Most are numbered (16 numbers between 1 and 72) and cite page numbers (from 27 to 154). The thirty plates that form an integral part of the present book were drawn and engraved by Eliza Donville (ca. 1770-1844), mistress of the author, Colonel George Montagu (1755-1815), who called her his "friend of science." She had a daughter by her husband in 1792, then separated from him. By the time the first part of the present work appeared in 1803 she had at least one child by Montagu, and by the time his wife died in 1805 she had three (all four children are mentioned in his will). Eliza continued to live with him and illustrate his natural history publications to his death in 1815. The inserted engravings of shells are numbered 71-72 and 74-76 and bear the name Turton, so they may come from William Turton, <I>A Conchological Dictionary of the British Islands</I>, 1819.The engraved title-pages to parts one and two (by Donville and dated 1803: the letterpress title-pages are undated) give the title as "Testacea Britannica or Natural History of British Shells." The engraved title-page for the supplement (engraved by J. Hibbert, Bath) is undated but the letterpress title-page is dated 1808. The letterpress text and the engraved plates are printed on wove paper by several English manufacturers (in the plates Edmeads & Pine, J. Ruse, James Whatman and John Hall). A few of the plates were apparently completed after 1808, for at least in the present copy the Whatman paper of plate 25 includes a watermark date "1810." The heavy plain-paper wrappers bound in with the present copy are watermarked "Rye Mill|1821."
With the 20-century bookplate of Vittorio Arioli. In very good condition, with minor foxing in the book itself and in the inserted watercolour drawings, one of which has a tear repaired, slightly affecting the tip of the shell. An important and well-illustrated work on British shells, here with 20 excellent original watercolour drawings bound in.

Adapted from the Introductory Note by the secreteriat: Throughout Europe a considerable number of offenders recive sentence which deprive tem of liberty. Sooner or later most of them are released and return to society. Do they return better or worse, or merely unaffected by the experience which they have had? What is meant by "better or "worse" nd how shall improvement or deteration be assessed? At a time when considerable interest is being shown in making prison systems nd treatment methods more effective it becomes essential to evaluate the measures used by the best scientific means avaliable.

Adamnan's De Locis Sanctis. [Lateinisch-Englisch.] Scriptores Latini Hiberniae, Volume III. - Meehan, Denis (Ed.):
Meehan, Denis (Ed.):
Dublin: The Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies, 1958.
154 S. Fadengehefteter Originalpappband.

Einband etwas berieben. - Aus dem Nachlass von Michael Richter. Mit Namensstempel auf Vorsatz. - Beiliegt: Hand- und maschinenschriftliche Notizen von MR. - Anstreichungen durch MR. - INTRODUCTION TOPOGRAPHICAL ANALYSIS THE TEXT TRADITION TEXT AND TRANSLATION -- Preface-The Chapters The First Book The Second Book The Third Book -- INDICES -- Index Scriptorum -- Index Orthographicus -- Index Nominum Propriorum -- Index Verborum et Locutionum -- Index Grammaticus et Rhetoricus -- General Index to Introduction and Notes. // THOUGH comparatively little known and little studied, the De Locis Sanctis of Adamnan is a document of considerable historical interest. Of primary importance for the light it throws on conditions in Palestine and the near east in the early years after the Moslem conquest, this narrative of Arculf's journey has the unusual interest too of simultaneously bringing into focus the widely separated Celtic, Byzantine, and Moslem worlds at the very dawn of the Middle Ages. Arculf appears to have been a Merovingian Gaul. His travels covered Moslem and Byzantine territories, and his experiences were recorded by an Irishman in the Celtic monastery of Iona. Before entering into particular study of this record, it will be helpful to dwell momentarily on the political dispositions throughout these various areas during the second half of the seventh century A.D., especially during the decade 670-80. Of the three British kingdoms, that of Northumbria was in the ascendant, and was during all this period considerably exposed to Celtic influence from the Columban monks. The reigns of Ecgfrith (671-85) and Aldfrith (685-705) concern us. Merovingian Gaul was in a period of decline. The era of the rois faineants extended from 639 to 751, when the three kingdoms of Neu-stria, Austrasia, and Burgundy were controlled rather indifferently by the Mayors of the Palace. The Roman Italy of Justinian had long been very effectively broken up by the turbulent Lombard kingdom. The Visigothic kingdom of Spain was destined to fall easily to the Moslems early in the eighth century. Sicily, though the Moslems seem to have sent an attacking fleet as early as 664, remained all the time under Byzantine control. ... (Einleitung)

The Sportsman's Companion: or Portraitures, Pedigrees and Performances, of the Most Eminent Race Horses & Stallions, Represented in Variety of Attitudes. Interspersed with Tail-Pieces & Embellishments Alluding to the Sport. Calculated for the Utility and Entertainment of the Nobility, Gentry, Breeders, &c. - Roberts, James & Henry.
Roberts, James & Henry.
London, J. Barker, c. 1800.
8vo. Letterpress title page and 40 engr. plates by James and Henry Roberts, engr. index leaf, and publisher's 4-page catalogue (with woodcut image of cocks fighting). Stitched in wrappers.

Fine series of plates, each depicting a famous horse with his rider or stable-hand, and recording its pedigree, qualities and racing record, together with the owner's name. The final plate shows the most famous of all, the Godolphin Arabian (here called the "Bay Arabian, the property of the Right Hon.ble the Earl of Godolphin"), foaled in Yemen around 1724: "This extraordinary horse became a private stallion soon after his arrival in this kingdom, and got a greater number of fine horses of just temper with superior speed than any Arab ever did. He was the Sire of Lath, Dismal, Cade, Bajazet, Babraham, Phenix, Dormouse, Regulus, Skewball, Sultan, Blanck, Slugg, Noble, Tarquin, Blossom, the Godolphin Gelding, Shepherdess, Amelia, and many others besides stallions and brood mares, all in the highest esteem; he dies at Hogmagogg Hills, Dec. 1753, in the 29th year of his age". - Among the other horses are Lath, the Godolphin Arabian's offspring by Roxana; Basto (son of the Byerly Turk); Old Scar, whose ancestry included the Oglethorpe Arabian and Darcy's Yellow Turk, etc. The horses pictured all ran between 1708 and 1755. The first edition was published in about 1760, and this Barker edition some forty years later. This copy has no watermarks, but the books listed in J. Barker's catalogue of publications were mostly published in the 1790s. - Spine rubbed and bumped; slight wear to edges and corners. An excellent copy with two small tears imperceptibly restored. Of the utmost rarity: the only copy recorded at auction during the last decades is the Gloucester copy (Christie's, Jan. 27, 2006, lot 592). - Huth, p. 38. Cf. Podeschi 54.

The first edition was published in about 1760. Rare, only two copies recorded in ABPC/AE Online. ESTC records two issues, one published and sold by Henry Roberts, the other printed for R. and R. Baldwin (as here): just one location is given for the first issue (Winterthur), and one for the second (BL). Huth records the work under a variant title, and also notes an 1820 edition. - Plate 12 shorter at margins, some spotting and browning, heavier at margins. A most handsome copy. - Huth 38.

CLARK, I[ohn]
London: Smith, Elder & Co., 1824.
Hand-coloured aquatint, 'drawn on the spot by I. Clark'. Image size (including text): 14 3/4 x 21 1/2 inches. Sheet size: 18 3/4 x 24 3/4 inches. An historically important topographical view of Glasgow in Scotland, from John Clark's 'Views in Scotland'. There is some debate as to who executed this stunning print. There is no reference which identifies the author of this view, but there is some indication that it is the work of the celebrated painter John Heaviside Clark (1770-1863). Born in Scotland, Clark exhibited regularly at the Royal Academy between 1801 and 1832. He was primarily a landscape and marine painter, but he also produced a number of fine aquatints, which exhibit his exceptional talents as an engraver. Known as "Waterloo Clark" for his early sketches of the battle of Waterloo, he was a painter of some repute across the British Isles, and his beautiful views remain some of the most attractive images of the English countryside. A contemporary gazetteer notes that the city was 'the manufacturing and commercial metropolis of Scotland, and the third city of the United Kingdom in point of population, and perhaps of wealth also.' (Fullarton [publisher's] A Gazetteer of the World 1856, III, p.615). According to the same source the population in 1821 was 147,043, the present view taken at about that time shows a city that is increasingly industrialised: factory chimneys are beginning to cast a pall of smoke over the city, but it has not yet come to completely overrun the landscape in which it is set. The population was to more than double in the next 20 years with the census of 1851 recording a population of 346,984. Cf. Abbey Scenery 489; cf. Prideaux p.331; Benezit, Dictionnaire des Peintres, Sculpteurs, Dessinateurs et Graveurs, vol 3, p. 676

CHARDIN, Sir John.
Le Normant, Paris, 1811.
With 85 engravings on 64 sheets (9 folding), including portrait of Chardin, 18 sheets with double-illustrations and 1 sheet with 4, with additional large folding map of Asia with outline coloured by hand by P. Lapie, 1810, engraved by Blondeau, all protected with original tissue guards. Recent half-calf over marbled boards. Attractive, fresh example of the atlas, uncut, from the most desirable edition enhanced with new and larger plates. Printed on thick paper and extra-illustrated with a large hand-coloured map of the whole region. 'Chardin was a Huguenot who was forced to emigrate to England. He was knighted by Charles II and on his death was buried in Westminster Abbey. His first visit to the East was made in 1665, at the age of twenty-two, when he both gratified a love of travelling and carried on his trade as a dealer in jewels. His more important voyage was made in 1671. His route differed from that usually taken by travellers to the East Indies in that he proceeded by way of the Black Sea and the countries bordering thereon' (Cox I p 249-250). 'Chardin set out for Persia for a second time in August 1671, but on this occasion diverted through Smyrna and Constantinople, and took the Black Sea Route to Caucasia, Mingrelia and Georgia, finally arriving at Esfahan in June 1673. In Georgia he heard of a race of warlike women, the Amazons, who had at some time in the recent past invaded a kingdom to the northwest. He remained in Persia for four years, as he says 'chiefly following the court in its removals, but also making some particular journeys.., as well as studying the language.' He apparently knew Esfahan better than Paris, and visited nearly every part of the country. His account of the Persian court and his business transactions with the shah are of considerable interest. In 1677 he proceeded to India, afterwards returning to France by way of the Cape of Good Hope' (Howgego C102); His second and more notable voyage to Persia, is important because it is in the account of this voyage that he describes life in late Safavid Persia' (Ghani p. 71). Includes, among others, lovely views of Tbilisi (Tiflis), Erevan, Ispahan, Persepolis as well as Georgian and Persian costumes, views of lavish palace rooms and the Coronation of Suleyman.
