         A Series of Views Illustrative of the Island of St. Helena. FIRST EDITION. 4to.

      Published for the proprietor by T. Clay. 1821 Engr. front. (portrait of Wathen after Archer James Oliver), titlepage with hand-coloured aquatint vignette, illus. with two woodcut tailpieces & nine hand-coloured plates (one folding, neatly backed with silk). A nice clean copy. Attractively bound with numerous blanks in 20th century half dark green crushed morocco, green cloth boards, spine lettered in gilt. Signature on leading f.e.p. of J.G. Le Quesne. v.g.Copac lists three copies, with OCLC adding seven more. Auction records show the most recent copy selling in London in 2011 for £4500. Loosely inserted is the later business card of Julian Wathen, a descendent of the artist, and a typed invitation from him to Le Quesne, dated November 1978. A very attractive copy of Wathen's magnificent drawings, produced 'during the short stay of not quite three days on the Island of St. Helena, in the Summer of 1812'. The plates, engraved on copper by I. Clarke, are preceded by an Advertisement, a five-page descriptive account of the island, and an explanatory list of the plates. Wathen, c.1751-1828, was a glove-maker from Hereford. A keen walker and self-taught artist, he went on numerous walking tours in Britain and Ireland, especially after his retirement, producing fine topographical sketches along the way. The war in Europe prevented travel on the continent in the early part of the 19th century, encouraging Wathen to travel further afield, namely a trip to India and the Far East aboard Captain James Prendergast's ship The Hope. Wathen published an account of his travels in 1814, illustrated with his own highly accomplished drawings. The voyage took in St Helena, affording Wathen a brief opportunity to sketch the island, and although two of those images appeared in his Journal of a Voyage to India and China, the others remained unseen until the publication of this work. The Advertisement, anonymously written, gives some idea of their splendour: 'That solitary speck in the vast Atlantic, which looks as if loneliness and loveliness had at once marked it for their own, is here faithfully shewn in all its wild and romantic lineaments, and from these representations those who may never look upon the original scenes, may yet highly enjoy them in such correct reflections'. This is a scarce publication.

         Manuscript Land Grant to Nathan Elliott in Van Diemens Land

      Sydney, 1821. Folio; manuscript in ink on vellum, 303 x 390 mm; in fine original condition, with suspended paper seal. A good, early grant by Macquarie as fifth governor, with the signatures of Charles Whelan as witness and Frederick Goulburn as Registrar. Of special interest is the signature of the second witness: Hector Macquarie, the governor's nephew, affectionately known to his uncle as the "Hero Hector". This land grant dates from just after the period when Hector accompanied Macquarie and his wife on their official tour of Tasmania.By this grant Nathan Elliott received seven hundred acres of land in the district of Jarvis, Van Diemens Land, on the Strathallan Creek. The area, which became known as Tea Tree Brush, is to the north of Hobart between Brighton and Richmond. Here Elliott built an important early house, Strathallan, and the grant is today a heritage property at the centre of a working farm.This land grant is on vellum, with a good signature by the governor, and is complete with Macquarie's seal of the colony of New South Wales. When it was issued in 1821, Macquarie had already lost his fight against John Thomas Bigge, the royal commissioner and the man who forced his resignation as governor. History has treated Macquarie more fairly since: the colony can be seen to have enormously prospered under his leadership from 1810 to 1822, and it is now celebrated as the Age of Macquarie and the period when New South Wales found its independent entity.Nathan Elliott arrived as a free immigrant in Van Diemen's Land 11 October 1819 on the David Shaw (his fellow passengers on the voyage included Richard Read, headed for Sydney). 21 months later years Elliott was granted this large parcel of land to which he subsequently added by further grants. By April 1837, Elliott had 395 acres in the parish of Drummond, 736 acres in the parish of Jarvis and 10 acres at Brighton. He began construction of the Strathallan homestead in the 1830s, and it was completed by 1842. He further expanded the property by acquiring neighbouring land and by 1862 it comprised 1,130 acres. It was listed on the National Trust Tasmanian Heritage Register, which describes it as "Single storey stone house with hipped roof with boxed eaves and return verandah on three sides. The front has 3 bays separated by pilasters, a central 4-panel timber door with fanlight and half sidelights and large 12 pane windows either side. Includes stone barn and stables"

         Analyse du Jeu des Échecs, Par Philidor, Avec une nouvelle notation abrégée, et quarante-deux plances où se trouve figurée la situation du jeu pour les renvois et les fins de partie.

      Philadelphie: J. Johnston, 1821. Leatherbound. Good. Nouvelle Édition. A laquelle on a joint la figure et la marche des différentes pièces de de Jeu, ainsi que l'explication des termes qui lui sont particuliers. [7], 4-12, 131-134, 13-126, [7], 138-150 p. + plates (pp. 131-134 misbound). 18 cm. 21 colour plates at rear in red, green and black. One b&w woodcut diagram of chess pieces. Full leather with gold impressing. Chipped spine ends and worn corners. Bookplate and clipping on front pastedown. Ink notations on bottom of front pastedown, rear of front free endpaper, and top of half title. Foxing. Tear in p. 143. Philidor (1726 – 1795) was a French composer who was also regarded as the best chess player of his age. He once played three blindfold games simultaneously in a chess club in London. A well-known chess opening and a checkmate method are both named after him. Eventually, as the clipping on the inside cover notes, he was forced to flee the French Revolution and settle permanently in England. First published in 1749, this book was a standard chess manual for at least a century. It was the first that gave detailed annotations on how to play the middle part of the game, that presented chess strategy as a whole, and that presented the concepts of the blockade, prophylaxis, positional sacrifice, and mobility of the pawn formation. A scarce edition, produced in the U.S. in French. Note the bookplate for Rev. F. X. Burque, apparently a well-known 19th-century chess player from St. Hyacinthe, Quebec.

         On the principles of political economy, and taxation Third edition

      London:: John Murray, 1821., 1821. 8vo. xii, 538 pp. Occasional foxing. Original paper-backed boards, printed paper spine label; spine rebacked with kozo, spine label chipped (a remnant) all extremities worn. Rubber-ownership stamp of Henry R. Wagner. Binding needs work; internally very good. Third edition of this classic work on political economics. This edition includes his chapter "On Machinery," which reconsidered the role of labor and the effect machines had on the labor force. "...in Ricardo's view, it is a choice between the potential for detrimental effects on labor from the use of new machinery versus even worse effects if the machinery is not used at all. His argument can certainly be questioned, at least in some places, but this is not the positive "lift all boats" theory of growth that is often attributed to Ricardo." - Sunday, September 16, 2012, Mark Thoma, [see: Economist's viewpoint]. "If I have to hire a labourer for a week, and instead of ten shillings I pay him eight, no variation having taken place in the value of money, the labourer can probably obtain more food and necessaries with his eight shillings than he before obtained for ten: but this is owing, not to a rise in the real value of his wages, as stated by Adam Smith, and more recently by Mr. Malthus, but to a fall in the value of the things on which his wages are expended, things perfectly distinct; and yet for calling this a fall in the real value of wages, I am told that I adopt new and unusual language, not reconcilable with the true principals of the science. To me it appears that the unusual and, indeed, inconsistent language is that used by my opponents." - Ricardo, On the principles of political economy, pp. 11-12. "David Ricardo is without doubt the greatest representative of classical political economy. He carried his work begun by Smith to the farthest point possible without choosing one or the other of the roads which led out of the contradiction inherent in it." - Roll, Eric, History of Economic Thought, pp. 155-6. "This work solidly established [Ricardo's] reputation as the leading economic annalist of his day. Barber, William J., A History of Economic Thought, 1967. "He now began to interest himself in scientific and mathematical studies, but after reading The Wealth of Nations he decided to devote himself to political economy The fundamental groundwork of the Principles is based on the theory that, given free competition in trade, the exchange value of commodities will be determined by the amount of labor expended in production: not a wholly original thesis, nor one capable of absolute expression, but one which was given new force by the theory of distribution with which Ricardo reinforced it. ... Ricardo was, in a sense, the first 'scientific' economist... Ricardo saw the study of economics as a pure science whose abstractions were capable of quasi-mathematical proof... his deductive methods have proved of great use in the elementary analysis of economic problems, and in the subjects which are capable of his rigid analysis, currency and banking, it has proved of lasting value." - Printing and the Mind of Man, 277. PROVENANCE: Henry Raup Wagner (1862-1957), Yale educated lawyer (classes of 1884 and 1886) and mining engineer who retired to California in 1917 where he became a leading bibliophile and California historical and cartographic authority. See: Streeter, Thomas W., "Henry R. Wagner, collector, bibliographer, cartographer and historian," California Historical Society Quarterly, Vol. 36, No. 2, (Jun., 1957), pp. 165-175.

      Gide fils, Paris 1821 - 3 volumes (text: 2 volumes, 8vo [8 x 5 1/2 inches]; atlas: folio [18 1/2 x 12 inches]). xii, 418; [4], 531, [1]pp. 30 engraved plates (portrait, 9 maps and 20 plates; 2 double-page maps). Uncut. Text in period patterned paper wrappers, the atlas bound to style in uniform period panelled wrappers. Housed in black morocco backed boxes. First edition in French of Krusenstern's seminal account of the first Russian expedition to circumnavigate the globe: complete with the rare atlas of plates. Capt. Ivan von Krusenstern's voyage was one of the most important post-Cook Pacific voyages, specifically aimed at obtaining more knowledge of the northern Pacific region, establishing diplomatic and commercial relations with Japan, and visiting the Russian trading posts in Alaska and on the west coast of America. It comprised the first Russian expedition to circumnavigate the globe, under the command of Krusenstern, between 1803 and 1806. Sailing in 1803, the expedition touched on Brazil and rounded Cape Horn, visiting the Marquesas Islands, Hawaii, Kamchatka, and Japan. In Hawaii the expedition separated, with ships under Langsdorff and Lisianski sailing to the Northwest Coast, while Krusenstern himself undertook the delicate Japan expedition, returning via Macao and the Cape of Good Hope. "The importance of this work stems from its being the official account of the first Russian expedition to circumnavigate the globe, and form the discoveries and rectifications of charts that were made, especially in the North Pacific and on the northwest coast of America" (Hill). First published in St. Petersburg between 1809 and 1814, with issues in both Russian and German, that first edition with its folio atlas of 105 plates is a major rarity of travel literature. Dutch, English and Italian editions followed, although none contained an atlas of plates. The present first edition in French is the first edition following the original publication to include an atlas of plates. The images are re-engraved versions of images in the original, and includes a portrait of Krusenstern, views and images of natives of the Marquesas, Japan, Sakhalin Island, Kamtchatka, etc., as well as nine maps of various Pacific regions visited. cf.

Most of the women are from the Northampton, Massachusetts area where Elizabeth and Henrietta lived. There are several recipes for plumb cake, loaf cake, sponge cake, wedding cakes, Federal Cake, Hartford Election Cake, Wine Cake, "Travelling Cake", "Delicate Cake", several varieties of gingerbread, "Harrison Cake", "dyspeptic bread" and Isinglass jelly. There are also receipts for curing hams and a "pickle for beef" as well as a "cement for glass wood etc." The cookbook was evidently passed down from Elizabeth Butler to her daughter Henrietta.Henrietta "Hetty" S. Butler was born September 15, 1816 in Massachusetts, she married Eli Smith in 1846, and died July 26, 1893, in Lyons, Ionia County, Michigan, she was the daughter of Daniel Butler (1768-1833) and Elizabeth Simpkins Butler (1774-1849).Daniel Butler, Henrietta's father, was born March 27, 1768 in Hartford, Connecticut, and died September 13, 1833 in Northampton, Massachusetts. Butler was a merchant in Northampton.Elizabeth Simpkins, Henrietta's mother, was born in 1774 in Massachusetts, and died September 11, 1849. Elizabeth Simpkins was a native of Boston. She was the daughter of John Simpkins (1740-1831) and Mehitable Torrey Kneeland (1738-1817). Elizabeth married Daniel Butler and together they had at least seven children, Henrietta was the couple's sixth child, born in 1816. Henrietta married Eli Smith in 1846, she was his third wife, together they had five children."Eli Smith (1801-1857), American missionary and Orientalist. Smith was born in Northford, Connecticut, and graduated from Yale with a B.A. in 1821. In 1826 he graduated from Andover Theological Seminary, was ordained, and was sent by the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions (ABCFM) to superintend the ABCFM printing press at Malta. Already competent in Greek, Latin and Hebrew, and having some knowledge of French German and Italian, he later learned Turkish and Armenian. Determined to master Arabic, he went to Beirut for language study, returning to Malta in 1827. In 1829 he accompanied Rufus Anderson in exploring mission possibilities in Greece, and in 1830, accompanied by H. G. O. Dwight, he began a 16 month journey of exploration reported in Researches of the Rev. E. Smith and Rev. H. G. O. Dwight in Armenia: Including a Journey through Asia Minor and into Georgia and Persia, with a visit to the Nestorian and Chaldean Christians of Oormiah and Salmas, 2 vols. (1833). While in the United States (1832-1833) he married Sarah L. Huntington, returning with her to Beirut in 1834. Equipped with a new press, Smith quickly began to produce materials in Arabic, including schoolbooks, Scripture portions, a hymnbook, catechisms, translations of religious classics, and his own and other missionaries' writings. He also published classics of Arabic literature, thereby contributing significantly to the renaissance of Arab culture. Intent on producing works of the highest quality, Smith designed a new typeface which became known as American Arabic. He shared actively in all the business of the mission, preached daily, and made a journey of exploration to Hauran in 1834 and undertook other journeys in 1838 and 1852 with Edward Robinson, who published Biblical Researches in Palestine…, 3 vols. (1841). Smith devoted his last ten years to the translation of the Bible into Arabic, a project completed after his death by C. V. A Van Dyke. Smith lost his first wife in 136; in 1841 he married Maria Chapin, who died within a year. He then married Henrietta Butler in 1846 and with her had three daughters and two sons. He died in Beirut."

Spines uniformly sunned to navy blue, occasional minor foxing to plates or small marginal stains, otherwise A FINE SET, clean and fresh in unworn bindings. This is an attractive set of Scott's lauded Elizabethan historical novel, embellished with a great number of extra illustrations depicting members of the British ruling class, cultural figures, and various scenes and landscapes befitting the story's setting. Included among the portraits are over 30 of Queen Elizabeth and nearly 20 of the Author himself; other notable figures pictured here include John Evelyn, William Shakespeare, and Sir Walter Raleigh. The first English-language author to be recognized internationally in his lifetime, Sir Walter Scott (1771-1832) was, in the words of DNB, "a radical inventor of literary forms," including, especially, the modern historical novel. "Kenilworth" is one of his so-called Waverly novels, a series of fictional works written by Scott between 1814-32, most of which were set in the past and deal with conflict in one way or another. The plot of the present work centers on Robert Dudley, Earl of Leister, and Amy Robsart, whose marriage is kept hidden so that Dudley may win the favor of Elizabeth I.

      Paris: Gide fils, 1821. 3 volumes (text: 2 volumes, 8vo [8 x 5 1/2 inches]; atlas: folio [18 1/2 x 12 inches]). xii, 418; [4], 531, [1]pp. 30 engraved plates (portrait, 9 maps and 20 plates; 2 double-page maps). Uncut. Text in period patterned paper wrappers, the atlas bound to style in uniform period panelled wrappers. Housed in black morocco backed boxes.First edition in French of Krusenstern's seminal account of the first Russian expedition to circumnavigate the globe: complete with the rare atlas of plates.Capt. Ivan von Krusenstern's voyage was one of the most important post-Cook Pacific voyages, specifically aimed at obtaining more knowledge of the northern Pacific region, establishing diplomatic and commercial relations with Japan, and visiting the Russian trading posts in Alaska and on the west coast of America. It comprised the first Russian expedition to circumnavigate the globe, under the command of Krusenstern, between 1803 and 1806. Sailing in 1803, the expedition touched on Brazil and rounded Cape Horn, visiting the Marquesas Islands, Hawaii, Kamchatka, and Japan. In Hawaii the expedition separated, with ships under Langsdorff and Lisianski sailing to the Northwest Coast, while Krusenstern himself undertook the delicate Japan expedition, returning via Macao and the Cape of Good Hope."The importance of this work stems from its being the official account of the first Russian expedition to circumnavigate the globe, and form the discoveries and rectifications of charts that were made, especially in the North Pacific and on the northwest coast of America" (Hill).First published in St. Petersburg between 1809 and 1814, with issues in both Russian and German, that first edition with its folio atlas of 105 plates is a major rarity of travel literature. Dutch, English and Italian editions followed, although none contained an atlas of plates. The present first edition in French is the first edition following the original publication to include an atlas of plates. The images are re-engraved versions of images in the original, and includes a portrait of Krusenstern, views and images of natives of the Marquesas, Japan, Sakhalin Island, Kamtchatka, etc., as well as nine maps of various Pacific regions visited.cf.

         John MacCulloch

      1821. Large Folio Manuscript, 15.5" X 9.5", 48 pages of an unpublished French translation of the introduction and the first two chapters of the famous John MacCulloch work, "A Geological Classification of Rocks with a Descriptive Synopsis of the Species and Varieties, comprising the Elements of Practical Geology." The book was published in 1821 in London. MacCulloch compiles a classification based on the Abraham Gottlob Werner work, but without sharing his opinions about the origin of the rocks and the method of their grouping. In the book, MacCulloch divided rocks into two main classes: Primary and Secondary. He subdivided Primary into unstratified (granite) and stratified (mainly gneisses and schists, with some sediments). The Secondary included all the younger sediments and a few 'unstratified' rocks, which his descriptions clearly indicate were igneous intrusions, although he did not specify them as such. Macculloch also described in detail the occurrences of basalt lava ('trap'), the remains of the extensive Tertiary basalt lava plateau off the west of Scotland" (DSB). Macculloch was one of the pioneers of British geology and mineralogy, and prepared the first geological map of Scotland.

MacCulloch was a Scottish Geologist and was elected to the Royal Society in 1820 He continued to write papers, chiefly on the rocks and minerals of Scotland, and had at last gathered so large an amount of information that the government was prevailed upon in the year 1826 to employ him in the preparation of a geological map of Scotland.

One part of the manuscript reads in part, "the number of species and minerals essential has batch composition of the rocks essentremement finite', but of an authenticate rock . . . stores of the rest under tired . . . nature; . . . some feel, they are able the consider common constituent left the masses . . . draft ice these various minerals . . . sounds the object of the systems of mineralogie and one the there will . . . leave numerous authors that fail to compile traits of the subject . ." The manuscript is written on Montgolfier watermarked paper and is in hand-bound stunning condition.

An uncommon account. M'Queen, the owner of plantations in Grenada in the West Indies, collected extensive information, principally from slaves but also from a study of Arab geographers,which led him correctly to the conclusion that the Niger ended in the great delta of the Blight of Benin. Not being a member of the geographical establishment, little notice was taken of his account at the time and many bizarre theories were put forward before M'Queen's thesis was accepted.

         On the principles of political economy, and taxation. Third edition.

      John Murray, 1821., London: - 8vo. xii, 538 pp. Occasional foxing. Original paper-backed boards, printed paper spine label; spine rebacked with kozo, spine label chipped (a remnant) all extremities worn. Rubber-ownership stamp of Henry R. Wagner. Binding needs work; internally very good. Third edition of this classic work on political economics. This edition includes his chapter “On Machinery,” which reconsidered the role of labor and the effect machines had on the labor force. “.in Ricardo's view, it is a choice between the potential for detrimental effects on labor from the use of new machinery versus even worse effects if the machinery is not used at all. His argument can certainly be questioned, at least in some places, but this is not the positive “lift all boats” theory of growth that is often attributed to Ricardo.” â€" Sunday, September 16, 2012, Mark Thoma, [see: Economist’s viewpoint]. “If I have to hire a labourer for a week, and instead of ten shillings I pay him eight, no variation having taken place in the value of money, the labourer can probably obtain more food and necessaries with his eight shillings than he before obtained for ten: but this is owing, not to a rise in the real value of his wages, as stated by Adam Smith, and more recently by Mr. Malthus, but to a fall in the value of the things on which his wages are expended, things perfectly distinct; and yet for calling this a fall in the real value of wages, I am told that I adopt new and unusual language, not reconcilable with the true principals of the science. To me it appears that the unusual and, indeed, inconsistent language is that used by my opponents.” â€" Ricardo, On the principles of political economy, pp. 11-12. “David Ricardo is without doubt the greatest representative of classical political economy. He carried his work begun by Smith to the farthest point possible without choosing one or the other of the roads which led out of the contradiction inherent in it.” â€" Roll, Eric, History of Economic Thought, pp. 155-6. “This work solidly established [Ricardo’s] reputation as the leading economic annalist of his day. Barber, William J., A History of Economic Thought, 1967. “He now began to interest himself in scientific and mathematical studies, but after reading The Wealth of Nations he decided to devote himself to political economy The fundamental groundwork of the Principles is based on the theory that, given free competition in trade, the exchange value of commodities will be determined by the amount of labor expended in production: not a wholly original thesis, nor one capable of absolute expression, but one which was given new force by the theory of distribution with which Ricardo reinforced it. . Ricardo was, in a sense, the first ‘scientific’ economist. Ricardo saw the study of economics as a pure science whose abstractions were capable of quasi-mathematical proof. his deductive methods have proved of great use in the elementary analysis of economic problems, and in the subjects which are capable of his rigid analysis, currency and banking, it has proved of lasting value.” â€" Printing and the Mind of Man, 277. PROVENANCE: Henry Raup Wagner (1862-1957), Yale educated lawyer (classes of 1884 and 1886) and mining engineer who retired to California in 1917 where he became a leading bibliophile and California historical and cartographic authority.

         Manuscript Cookbook of Henrietta Butler Smith, the third wife, of American Missionary Eli Smith, with her Daguerreotype portrait

      quarto, 13 pages, plus blanks, bound in early 19th century ¼ red leather and marbled boards, binding worn rubbed and scuffed, contemporary ownership signature: "Elizabeth Butler's Book 1821", on front pastedown, Elizabeth Butler was Henrietta's mother. Laid in are 13 receipts and notes, including two letters containing recipes from Henrietta's sisters Maria and Sarah, and a newspaper clipping with Henrietta Butler's remedy for cholera which she devised in Syria, plus additional recipes and 20th century notes from Henrietta Smith's granddaughter, a Mrs. Thomas Russell, of New Haven, with information and comments on the volume, she states in one note that the volume contains "some Syrian receipts". Some spotting and foxing to text, two leaves are torn across. The cookbook is accompanied by a sixth plate daguerreotype portrait of Henrietta Smith, (see image above). The image is in good condition, case rubbed, cover detached but present. Probably taken circa 1846 when Henrietta and Eli Smith were married. This manuscript cook book contains 69 recipes, not counting the inlaid receipts, which brings the total number of recipes to 91, primarily cakes and cookies. A wide variety of cakes are noted, sometimes different variations of the same cake. In many cases the name of the woman providing the recipe is noted. Most of the women are from the Northampton, Massachusetts area where Elizabeth and Henrietta lived. There are several recipes for plumb cake, loaf cake, sponge cake, wedding cakes, Federal Cake, Hartford Election Cake, Wine Cake, "Travelling Cake", "Delicate Cake", several varieties of gingerbread, "Harrison Cake", "dyspeptic bread" and Isinglass jelly. There are also receipts for curing hams and a "pickle for beef" as well as a "cement for glass wood etc." The cookbook was evidently passed down from Elizabeth Butler to her daughter Henrietta. Henrietta "Hetty" S. Butler was born September 15, 1816 in Massachusetts, she married Eli Smith in 1846, and died July 26, 1893, in Lyons, Ionia County, Michigan, she was the daughter of Daniel Butler (1768-1833) and Elizabeth Simpkins Butler (1774-1849). Daniel Butler, Henrietta's father, was born March 27, 1768 in Hartford, Connecticut, and died September 13, 1833 in Northampton, Massachusetts. Butler was a merchant in Northampton. Elizabeth Simpkins, Henrietta's mother, was born in 1774 in Massachusetts, and died September 11, 1849. Elizabeth Simpkins was a native of Boston. She was the daughter of John Simpkins (1740-1831) and Mehitable Torrey Kneeland (1738-1817). Elizabeth married Daniel Butler and together they had at least seven children, Henrietta was the couple's sixth child, born in 1816. Henrietta married Eli Smith in 1846, she was his third wife, together they had five children. "Eli Smith (1801-1857), American missionary and Orientalist. Smith was born in Northford, Connecticut, and graduated from Yale with a B.A. in 1821. In 1826 he graduated from Andover Theological Seminary, was ordained, and was sent by the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions (ABCFM) to superintend the ABCFM printing press at Malta. Already competent in Greek, Latin and Hebrew, and having some knowledge of French German and Italian, he later learned Turkish and Armenian. Determined to master Arabic, he went to Beirut for language study, returning to Malta in 1827. In 1829 he accompanied Rufus Anderson in exploring mission possibilities in Greece, and in 1830, accompanied by H. G. O. Dwight, he began a 16 month journey of exploration reported in Researches of the Rev. E. Smith and Rev. H. G. O. Dwight in Armenia: Including a Journey through Asia Minor and into Georgia and Persia, with a visit to the Nestorian and Chaldean Christians of Oormiah and Salmas, 2 vols. (1833). While in the United States (1832-1833) he married Sarah L. Huntington, returning with her to Beirut in 1834. Equipped with a new press, Smith quickly began to produce materials in Arabic, including schoolbooks, Scripture portions, a hymnbook, catechisms, translations of religious classics, and his own and other missionaries' writings. He also published classics of Arabic literature, thereby contributing significantly to the renaissance of Arab culture. Intent on producing works of the highest quality, Smith designed a new typeface which became known as American Arabic. He shared actively in all the business of the mission, preached daily, and made a journey of exploration to Hauran in 1834 and undertook other journeys in 1838 and 1852 with Edward Robinson, who published Biblical Researches in Palestine..., 3 vols. (1841). Smith devoted his last ten years to the translation of the Bible into Arabic, a project completed after his death by C. V. A Van Dyke. Smith lost his first wife in 136; in 1841 he married Maria Chapin, who died within a year. He then married Henrietta Butler in 1846 and with her had three daughters and two sons. He died in Beirut."
