         Discoveries in the Ruins of Nineveh and Babylon

      1853. LAYARD, Austen H. Discoveries in the Ruins of Nineveh and Babylon; with Travels in Armenia, Kurdistan and the Desert: Being the Result of a Second Expedition undertaken for the Trustees of the British Museum. xxiii, [1], 686, [2] pp. Illustrated with 5 folding maps and plans, 11 engraved plates of the ruins and their environs (2 folding), and 232 woodcuts illustrating the text, many being full-page. 8vo., 221 x 140 mm, bound in the original (and famous) Edmonds & Remnants blind-stamped brown ribbed cloth, blocked to a Babylonian motif, portraying a human-headed bull in profile, his wings spread round the upper covers, within a frame below a sample of cuneiform script, spine title lettered in gilt within the statue's breastplate, printed brick-red endpapers. London: John Murray, 1853. First Edition of Layard's account of his historic expedition, in which he investigated the ruins of Babylon and the mounds of southern Mesopotamia. Of the eleven engraved plates, six are in lithograph (three tinted). Until Layard's exploration, the identification of the site of Nineveh had long perplexed various archeologists. His excavations revealed palaces and a cuneiform library. The city of Nineveh, which is often mentioned in the Bible, was the capital of the Assyrian empire and reached its full glory under Sennacherib and Assurbanipal. The city fell in 612 B.C. to a coalition of Babylonians, Medes and Scythians. The successful results of the years Layard spent among the ruins are, of course, renowned. Some isolated foxing as usual. The elaborate Victorian publisher's binding (reproduced by Abbey on Plate XX) is in unusually fine condition. Blackmer 969. Abbey, Travel 364. Cat. Russica, No. L370.

         Schoolteacher's letter describing a young slave's attack upon attack upon three children in her classroom

      Wading River, Long Island, New York 1853 - This 4-page letter from a schoolteacher to her aunt, apparently in Bridgeport, Connecticut, measures approximately 6.5" x 8.5". It is in very nice shape. Much of the letter concerns news about family and friends, however Clarissa notes that "My school is not yet out but will be soon, and then I shall feel my self quite at liberty. I usually have 9 scholars, more than half must to be read in words of one or two syllables, which makes it quite tiresome and dull to me. But I have very little troble to make them mind; most are very good." However, she devotes two paragraphs to: "quite a scene [that] occurred at school. While myself and the elder children had gone to the beach for a walk, a colored boy belonging to Mr. Paynes came into the school room and began to beat three little children I had left there-two of them was not much hurt, but Laura Ann Hulse was badly injured. Her back was fairly black & blue, and the skin was broke in many places. Her head was all bloody and her hand and arms much swollen where he had beat her with my ruler which he took from the desk. The children were too small to offer any resistance, and he told them if they attempted to make any noise, he would kill them. Mrs. Hulse took the child before the 'village squire' and obtained a warrant for his apprehension. Accordingly, on Monday afternoon, he was carried to jail, where his is to stay three months." This calls to mind Nat Turner's massacre of ten white children at Waller's School, and even though Long Island in 1853 was a far cry from Southampton County, Virginia in 1831, it's quite surprising that Mr. Paynes' slave received such a light sentence for his violent and bloody attack upon these students. Very scarce. As of 2017, other than the testimony associated with Nat Turner's rebellion, no other first-hand manuscript accounts of such attacks are held by institutions per OCLC. None are in the trade; and no similar auction records are found at Rare Book Hub or ABPC.

         ONE OF THE BEST AND CERTAINLY THE FUNNIEST ILLUSTRATED GOLD RUSH LETTERSHEETS; The Miner's Ten Commandments. Composed by Forty-Nine (James M. Hutchings), and illustrated by Harrison Eastman

      San Francisco: Sun Print, 1853. Unbound. Very good. This lettersheet is printed on light blue paper measuring approximately 9.25" x 11.25". The text of the commandments is printed in three centered columns bordered on the right, left, and bottom by ten corresponding vignettes that satirically illustrate each An eleventh vignette, at the top center, features an elephant using its trunk to call a miner's attention to a Ten Commandments broadside that has been posted to the wall of "a clapboard shanty.". Unused and clean with two horizontal and three vertical folds. Minor edge-wear and pinholes at three of the fold junctions. The humorous, tongue-in-cheek, proscriptive Miner's Ten Commandments addressed bad habits, inappropriate behavior, and temptations associated with Gold Rush life: claim jumping, stealing, fighting, gambling, drinking, cheating, lying, etc. (A transcription of the commandments is included.). James M. Hutchings, who had made a fortune in the initial Gold Rush of 1849 but lost it all in a bank failure, first published his parody in the Placerville Herald newspaper in 1853. After it was reprinted as a lettersheet, it proved quite popular with the miners and was so profitable for that he was able to begin publishing his Illustrated California Magazine and amass a fortune once more. An early settler in and fierce promoter of the Yosemite Valley, Hutchings operated the Calaveras Big Tree Grove Hotel. Milford (B-167) notes that this was probably the most popular of the Gold Rush lettersheets. He also notes that the elephant was an allusion an American idiom popularized during the Mexican-American War, "If one has seen the elephant, on has seen it all," which refers to gaining worldly experience at a significant cost. Not often found in condition this nice.

      De Ganay 249; Oxford companion to gardens, pp. 47-52; WorldCat (3 copies). Very rare first and only edition of an attractive suite of lithographs, limited to 150 copies, of the gardens at Beloeil, "the principal example in Belgium of the classical French style". "It was not until the mid-18th century, at Beloeil, that the French classical garden finally gained a firm hold in the Belgian provinces ... the present gardens are the result of rearrangement made for the most part in the mid-18th century under Prince Claude-Lamoral II de Ligne, assisted principally by the French architect Jean-Baptiste Bergé..." (Oxford companion to gardens).The suite is preceded by letterpress text, including a dedicational poem to the Princess de Ligne whose husband, Prince Eugène had commissioned the most recent additions to the gardens which included an orangery and rustic temple. This poem is followed by three parts, respectively describing the estate, the history of the grounds and castle and a brief history of the family. Some minor stains on the first two pages and a few minor spots throughout, otherwise in very good condition. Binding rubbed along the extremities and spine damaged.

         The Twenty-Four Books of the Holy Scriptures. [The Hebrew Bible].

      Philadelphia 371 Walnut Street 1853 - Quarto (28.5 x 25 cm), iv, 1011 pp., 2 blank family record leaves, short closed tear to leaf F3, some light foxing. Contemporary calf gilt, spine in six compartments, red morocco label lettered in gilt to second, raised bands. A very good copy. The first complete translation of the Old Testament by a Jewish translator into English. This work was built upon Leeser's 1845 translation of the five books of the Torah. Previous editions published by Jewish translators in England (such as Levi and Alexander) had simply utilized the King James translation. Leeser's preface explains that this massive undertaking sprung from "a desire entertained for more than a quarter of a century, since the day he quitted school in his native land to come to this country, to present to his fellow-Israelites an English version, made by one of themselves, of the Holy Word of God." Readers would now "have an opportunity to study a version of the Bible which has not been made by the authority of churches in which they have no confidence." Rabbi Isaac Leeser (1806-1868) was born in Germany and emigrated to America in 1824. The head rabbi of the Synagogue Mikveh Israel in Philadelphia, he became America's most influential Jewish writer, editor, and teacher. He promulgated Jewish culture and religious activity in the United States by providing American Jews with the numerous basic religious texts and conceptual tools they needed.
