This lot includes the pair of rare antique books shown in the corresponding image. These most uncommon volumes contain hand-written Ethiopic manuscripts on vellum. The Ethiopic or Ge'ez alphabet is probably the only one of many African alphabets that has survived and is still in use. Ge'ez is also a sacred script in the Rastafarian religion. Roots reggae musicians have used it in album art.

Both volumes date back to the nineteenth century, the older of the two going back to the early part of the century and the more recent book from its end (circa 1890). The latter displays primitive binding with a combination of leather and wood. This volume contains two bright color Christian-themed images (see additional pictures). The second book is covered in a tufted fabric and comes in its own hand-made leather pouch. An image of dark-skinned Virgin Mary and baby Jesus is shown at the center of a full-page color illustration on the penultimate page of this book. Volumes measure approximately 3 1/2" x 4 1/2" and 6 1/2" x 7 1/2". Both remarkably well-preserved volumes show wear to exterior.

$225
Title: Antique Portable Typewriter in Oak Case
Manufacturer: Hammond Typewriter Company, NY
Patent Date: February 3, 1880
Production Date: July 18, 1893
Model: Hammond 1B

Condition/Details: Still in its original, shaped oak case, this antique typing machine shows beautifully with a fine period look. A rare find in any condition, the Hammond typewriter was the first office typewriter that appeared as a true alternative to the Remington Standard 2. James B. Hammond's invention appeared on the market in 1884. It was a striking machine with several features that would survive for many decades.

The Hammond Typewriter featured a type-shuttle, a semi-circular strip of hardened rubber (later light metal) that could easily be replaced. "For every nation, for every tongue" was the slogan James Hammond introduced to stress the obvious advantage of this machine over the competition's: the use of different type faces. To print the letter onto the paper, a hammer struck the paper from behind and pushed it against the shuttle, through a thin rubber impression band, the ribbon and a thin shield to avoid getting ink stains onto the paper. The hammer was spring-driven, providing the most even printing result possible in the days of manual typewriters.

The Hammond 1 had a type shuttle that consisted of two separate sections, each operated by one half of the curved "Ideal" keyboard. Later models (starting with the Hammond 2) used a single type shuttle that remained in use until well into the 1970s. Mechanically the Hammond 1 showed all the basic features that would still be present on machines built 40 years later. The heart of the machine is the turret with the semi-circle of vertical pins that are pushed up when a key is pushed. At the same time the type shuttle turns and is stopped by the pin, in the correct position for the right type to face the paper. The spring is released, the hammer strikes, the pin drops back and the shuttle swings back into neutral position.

What was not to stay was the beautiful wooden case that surrounded the machine on all sides. The Hammond first appeared in a time when machines were not appreciated for aesthetical reasons. Especially when intended for use in the office or at home, machines tended to be hidden in wooden cases and cabinets. The Hammond 1, with its dark rectangular keys and wooden case, was consciously or not, made to resemble a musical instrument, a machine of culture.(courtesy of typewritermuseum.org)

The main housing is cast with all motive parts exposed, the original metal label shows well on the base, other working parts are chrome or nickel finished. All but two keys are present, all keys move freely. The carriage travels smoothly with a strong spring and a ribbon is present (detached near one end). The typing mechanics need some attention, one or two small parts appear to be lacking inside the typing drum. This typewriter shows beautifully with some age/wear indications, the case is also very attractive with some age/wear, both brass clasps for the case are present and functional. Shipping cost (within the U.S.) for this lot will be: $34.50

Title: An Account of the Life and Writings of James Beattie, Late Professor of Moral Philosophy and Logic in Marischal College and University of Aberdeen, Including Many of His Letters
Author: Sir William Forbes
Publisher: E. Roper (London)
Printing Year: 1824 Two volumes bound as one

Condition/Details: Bound in three-quarter leather with raised bands and marbled boards, this antique volume is a scarce biography of James Beattie (1735-1803), a Scottish philosopher and poet who spent his entire academic career as Professor of Moral Philosophy and Logic at Marischal College in Aberdeen. His best known philosophical work, "An Essay on The Nature and Immutability of Truth In Opposition to Sophistry and Scepticism" (1770), is a rhetorical tour de force which affirmed the sovereignty of common sense while excoriating David Hume (1711-1776). It had great immediate success, and led to an introduction to the King, a pension of 200, and the degree of LL.D. from Oxford. This biographical work is illustrated with a frontispiece portrai of Beattie. This handsome volume shows light external age/wear, and is solidly bound with age-toned pages. The book measures approximately 5 3/4" x 8 1/2" and contains 420/429 pages. Shipping cost (within the U.S.) for this lot will be: $4.50
