Item Description: ATHENS GREECE, 1913. Book Condition: Good+. On offer is a super, original manuscript relic of one young man's education and observations in archaeology pre World War I. As the cover states: the book is the "Journal of Herbert Wing Jr, American School, Athens, Greece, November 15, 1913." This notebook contains approx 100+ pages of notes and observations from Wing, mostly related to his classes at the American School which focused on Greek history and archaeology. Wing would go on to a celebrated career in Greek Studies. BIO NOTES: Herbert Wing, Jr. was born on December 8, 1889 in Minneapolis, Minnesota, but was reared in New Bedford, Massachusetts. He graduated from Harvard University in 1901 and furthered his education at the University of Wisconsin where he received his Ph. D., in 1915. He began teaching at the Wilmington High School in Wilmington, Massachusetts in 1909 as an Assistant Principal. Wing taught at the University of Wisconsin from 1910-1912 and from 1914-1915 as a Student Assistant in European History. He was an Associate Professor of European History at the University of Michigan's 1917 summer session. Wing came to Dickinson College in 1915 as an Associate Professor of Greek Language and Literature. In 1920 he became full Professor of Greek Language and Literature. While at Dickinson College, Wing taught many courses in German, Greek, Latin and all types of History courses. Every freshman from 1916-1946 was required to take Wing's Ancient History course. He was the Chairman of the Greek Department and the Chairman of the History Department since 1937. In 1948, Wing was the first incumbent of the Robert Coleman Chair of History. Wing retired in 1960 with Professor Emeritus rank. In addition to teaching, Wing was a successful debate coach. The students gave him honorary membership into Omicron Delta Kappa, Tau Kappa Alpha and Pi Gamma Mu, all honor societies. Wing also was the faculty member in charge of the bookstore at Dickinson College. He ran the bookstore for over twenty-seven years. Wing held the position of secretary of the faculty from 1940-1946. Many referred to Wing as "Mr. 3 by 5," because of his insistence for students to take notes on assigned readings on three by five inch index cards. Wing married Helen Leonard Gilman in1916 and had one son who graduated from Dickinson College. A letter from President Corson shows the college's appreciation for Wing's involvement at Dickinson. Herbert Wing, Jr., died on September 13, 1972. Size: 16mo - over 5¾" - 6¾" tall. Manuscript. Bookseller Inventory # 0002097

Item Description: London T. Cadell and W. Davies, 1808. First edition. 5 volumes, 4to., a few spots otherwise very good, contemporary half russia, marbled boards, gilt panelled spines in five compartments, gilt lettered direct in second, numbered in fourth, others richly gilt, light wear, an excellent set. "In 1784 he [Mitford] published the first volume of his principal work, the History of Greece. This was on an unprecedentedly large scale. Previous treatments (the Grecian histories of Temple Stanyan and Oliver Goldsmith) had been moralistic compilations. Mitford's first volume covered events from early times to the end of the Persian wars (479 BC). The outbreak of the French Revolution in 1789 had a great impact on Mitford. The second volume of his History, which appeared in 1790, took the story of events in Greece down to 404 BC and gave ample scope for an analogy between the radical democrats of fifth-century Athens and the revolutionaries in France. In 1797 he published the third volume of his History, covering the period from the oligarchic coup of the Thirty Tyrants in Athens at the end of the Peloponnesian War in 404 BC to the peace of Antalcidas (between Sparta and Persia) in 386. This volume covers the rise of Mitford's hero, Philip of Macedon; but it is prefaced by a résumé of the late fifth century, in order to re-emphasize what is repeatedly called 'a tyranny in the hands of the people' at Athens. Such was now the climate of opinion in England that, whereas in 1790 Mitford had incurred liberal criticism, his more extreme comments in 1797 won wide acclaim. In 1808 appeared the fourth volume of the History, covering events from 386 to the battle of Chaeronea in 338 (when Philip established his supremacy in Greece). The fifth and final volume of his History was published in 1818, ending with the death of Alexander the Great in 322 BC. In the fourth and fifth volumes he praised the monarchy of Macedon, as in the first he had praised the kingdoms of early Greece: in both he saw (with some straining of the evidence) parallels to the balanced constitution of Britain in his own day." (precis from ODNB). Bookseller Inventory # 90363

Each section folding into blue marbled endpapers, two of which are pasted with notices on 'proper Pronunciation of Foreign, and Asiatic Words in particular' and statistics concerning the Turkish Empire. Impressive hand-coloured map depicting South East Europe - rare: one of only 200 copies produced during the Crimean War. This map is a re-edit of Franz von Weiss' map Carte der Europaeischen Turkey nebst einem Theile von Kleinasien (1829), printed in Vienna in twenty one map-sheets. Thomas Best Jervis, a major of the Corps of Engineers and prominent member of the Geological and Geographical Societies, published it in 200 copies in order to be used by the British army in the Crimean War.

The maps include nine additional insets of city-plans and sites of strategic interest - Belgrade, Butrint, Preveza, Rio-Antirio, Isthmus of Corinth, Navarino, Rhodes and Izmir, as well as the Black Sear and its environs. 'Franz von Weiss' maps of SE Europe (1821, 1829) issued in two crucial dates associated with the establishment of the modern Greek State in early 19th-century', e-Perimetron Vol. 6, No. 1, 2011 [29-38].

Item Description: 1859. Folio (390 x 270mm). Contemporary half red roan gilt over cloth, spine gilt in compartments and lettered in one, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers; letterpress title and index, printed on the rectos of 2 bifolia, 44 double-page steel-engraved maps hand-coloured in outline, numbered [1]-25 and 28-46, one large folding steel-engraved map of India numbered '26 & 27' hand-coloured in outline and laid down on linen,and one double-page hand-coloured steel-engraved plate of the principal mountains and rivers of the world, all except the first two maps by and after John Dower; boards somewhat marked and scuffed, slight cracking on joints, occasional light spotting or browning, some maps with skilfully-repaired short tears on margins or folds, otherwise a good copy; provenance: 'Grace V. Pocock, 1861' (inscription on front flyleaf, most probably Grace Vernon Pocock (nà e Buzzacott, 1806-1868), wife of:) -- John Thomas Pocock (1814-1876, armorial bookplate on upper pastedown, and by descent). Teesdale's A New General Atlas of the World was first published in 1832 (with maps dated 1831), and further editions followed in 1835, 1836, 1837, 1838, etc. down to this (and possibly later) editions; all follow the format of this edition, with the same number of maps by John Dower (fl. 1838-1846) on the same subjects. However, the maps have been re-engraved to include the most recent discoveries (for example, the map of the United States shows 'recently acquired territories' and railways 'in progress, or projected'; Kane's discovery of 'North Grinnell Land' in 1855 is shown in the Arctic). This copy was previously in the collection of J.T. Pocock, who had left England for Australia as a young man, following the failure of his father's successful property development business. Sadly, the Australian settlement he was travelling to had failed, so he travelled to Cape Town, where he established a successful business and married Grace Vernon Buzzacott in 1841. The inscription 'Grace V. Pocock, 1861' is most probably that of his wife, with whom he visited London in 1861, but it is also possible that it is by their daughter, also called Grace Vernon (1843-1877). Cf. Phillips, Atlases 812 (ed. 'Corrected to 1854'). Bookseller Inventory # 2055686

Item Description: GREECE, 1830. Book Condition: Good. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. On offer is a lovely handwritten manuscript book on Greek history and culture, circa 1820-30s with over 150 pages in a beautiful, calligraphic hand and tightly written. The front cover is absent and there is no title page but we suspect this is a scrivener's work of duplicating an older work or text. Topic chapters include Sylla, Sertious & Eumenes, Pompey, Agesilaus, Niccas, Cleomenes, Agis, Caius Graechus, Tiberias Graechus +. In the upper left corner hard by the edge is what appears to be a smudged and soiled name of ownership which we think is 'Wm. W____'. No date but clearly early in the early part of the 19th century. This 4 by 7 inch book is missing the front cover but is otherwise G+. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 0001271

Item Description: Maggs Bros Ltd, London, first edition, 1989., 1989. Edition of 300 copies. Original boards, folio, 35 cm, xxi, 446 pp, xvi pages of plates (some colour). From the publisher's advertisement: "The publication of [the] Henry Blackmer catalogue is an important event in Greek and Levantine studies. Never has such an extensive collection been catalogued in such detail. There are over 1800 entries, mainly printed books but including manuscripts, photographs and drawings. Every book is described with a signature collation and plate count: in difficult cases a full plate list is printed. Physical bibliography is followed by an historical account of each book, setting it and the author in context. The non book materials are described in equal detail and particular attention is paid to the interrelation between different items. The late Henry Blackmer was an American banker who settled in Athens and formed this remarkable collection as a tribute to his adopted country. The books range in date from the 15th to the 19th century, and include many books of travel, archaeological and architectural treatises, costume books, political tracts and historical accounts of wars, battles and sieges in all the languages of the Eastern mediterranean."With a bibliography and index. Covers a trifle sunned, otherwise Near Fine. 0901953067. Bookseller Inventory # ABE-05342

Item Description: B. T. Batsford, London, England, 1907. Unbound. Book Condition: Very Good Minus. Vulliamy, Lewis; Moses, Henry (illustrator). First Edition Thus. Presumed first [and only?] printing of the first edition thus. The plates originally appeared in "Examples of Ornamental Sculpture in Architecture, drawn from the Originals in the Years 1818-21," published in 1825. Preface dated August 1907. Presumed printed and bound in Great Britain. This edition printed by the publisher from the original copper plates of the artist. Ex library but with very few of the usual ex library markings, and in any case a non-circulating copy. 19.5 x 13.25 inches. With two large folded sheets of text, including a title page, a preface page, and four pages of explanatory text for the plates, a headpiece illustration and a plan of the Temple of Apollo Didymaeus. With 20 unbound B&W full-page plates, as called for. All plates drawn on copper by Lewis Vulliamy and engraved by Henry Moses with exquisite and painstaking draughtsmanship. The paper on which the engravings are pulled appears to be mould-made cream stock. Plates 3 and 5 with a little light soiling/spotting into the plates. The remaining plates appear to be unfoxed or else with a few tiny marginal spots. All pages with minor bumping/rippling to the lower corner, in the margins only, not into the images. Tiny blindstamp of the college library to the top of the title page, scarcely noticeable. Scattered foxing to the four text pages containing notes on the plates. Else a clean copy. Housed in a contemporary port-foilio of dark green buckram spine and corners and with dark green paper hardboards, the front board with elaborate black-stamped lettering. The binding lightly soiled. A library call number in small white ink hand to the spine. The port-folio with moderately bumped spine head and tail and corners. Original green cloth ties fully intact. The front pastedown of the port-folio with white label of the college library. A Very Good Minus copy. Extremely scarce in any condition. "The plates included in this work are a selection from those which were published in 1825 by Lewis Vulliamy, the architect, on his return from the tour which he made through Greece, Asia Minor, and Italy, as travelling student of the Royal Academy." The 1825 edition is virtually unobtainable. Also included with this purchase is "Examples of ornamental sculpture in architecture drawn from the originals of bronze, marble and terra cot[ta] in Greece, Asia Minor and Italy." Isha Books, New Delhi, 2013. Isha gives the original date of publication as 1823. The Isha publication, a hardback with DJ, is a crude photocopy reprint in much reduced size (11x 8.5 inches) but contains 40 plates, half of which are in the Spiers 1907 edition. Viewing the Isha publication one can appreciate the extraordinary crispness of detail in the Spiers edition. Size: Elephant Folio - over 15" - 23" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 007198
