1832 Moby Dick Inspiration Morrell Narrative of Four Voyages Shipwrecks Melville

Benjamin Morrell was a 19th-century American sailor who is primarily remembered for his book 'A Narrative of Four Voyages'. This book described his sea adventures, his discoveries, and shipwrecks; however, much to his dismay, many of the reports in his book were proven false and he was marked as a fraud.

And while much of his work is disputed, one such thing that is not is that Herman Melville is thought to have based themes of his book 'Moby Dick'. As a child, Melville saw Morrell on one of his voyage tours and was fascinated by the stories.

Description:
1822 Famous 2ed David Porter Journal USS Essex Battle of Valparaiso War of 1812

David Porter was an early American naval captain who served on the USS Constitution and the USS Essex. While aboard the Essex, Porter faced significant hardships, including the Battle of Valparaiso where the ship was ultimately disabled. Porter kept a journal of his time aboard the Essex, a journal that was quickly published after capture of the Essex.
According to Hill, the second of Porter's 'Journal' is the "best edition" and is more complete even than the first. In fact, this edition contains the first instance of the details of Porter's loss of the USS Essex in 1814. This edition also includes an expanded preface as well as folding maps and notes and illustrations on the Galapagos Islands.

1790 Five Orders Architecture VIGNOLA Italian ART Michelangelo RARE French ed

The most successful architectural textbook ever written!

A rare printing of Vignola's 'Five Orders of Architecture' Giacomo da Vignola was perhaps the most important 16th-century architects. Originally printed in 1562, 'Regola,' as it is often called, was successful mainly due to its effectiveness in teaching. It was designed to aid builders and designers in the realization of their architectural projects. It focuses on all five of the major orders (or styles) of architecture – Doric, Ionic, Corinthian, Tuscan, and Roman. (Fabrizio)
This 18th-century French edition includes 84 impressive architectural engravings and features a short treatise on stone cutting and carpentry, as well as lessons on the work of Vignola by Claude Delagardette.

Description:
1537 1ed Orthodox Saint John Chrysostom On the Priesthood + Brixius Marburg

A rare 16th-century printing of works of John Chrysostom. Chrysostom was one of the most important Early Christian Church authors and preachers and is most remembered for his sermons and homilies. He preached on many different subjects, but his most frequented topic was helping the needy. Chrysostom calls for followers of Jesus to set aside their material desires to help the poor, often in a way that shamed the rich and guilted them in to giving.
"Do you pay such honor to your excrements as to receive them into a silver chamber-pot when another man made in the image of God is perishing in the cold?" (Chrysostom in Liebeschuetz)

One of his most important treatises was 'On the Priesthood' in which he describes his experiences becoming a priest and living as a priest. Interestingly, this work was popular during his lifetime as he made references to it in his other works.

It was Lowther who first provided many now-familiar details of Superman's birth and early life.

1887 FOLIO Rime of Ancient Mariner Coleridge Gustave Dore & Paton Illustrated

Known as one of the English Lake Poets, Samuel Taylor Coleridge was one of the most notable 19th-century English romance poets. Coleridge's longest poem was 'The Rime of the Ancient Mariner'. This poem was one of the most important poems written at the end of the 18th-century, as it was known to begin the shift from the Romantic period into the Modern period of English poetry. It describes the sea voyages of a sailor who experienced dangers, adventures, and even supernatural encounters!

This huge 1887 edition is notable for including the illustrations of Gustave Dore and Joseph Noel Paton. In addition to the highly desirable art, this edition features commentary and critical notes by Alfred Trumble.

1748 ENGLISH Vauban FORTS Military Engineering Fortifications Illustrated War

Sébastien Le Prestre de Vauban was a 17th-century French engineer who, after serving as the Marshal of France, became known as the greatest engineer of his time. It was from his surveys and developments in fortifications that propelled him to engineering fame. In fact, his fortification philosophies were used for nearly a century after his life. Vauban understood that at some point, all forts would fall, no matter how powerful. From this, Vauban sought to improve fort designs to absorb as much of the attack force as possible, even including house and structures to support fortification walls.

This 1748 English edition of Vauban's famous "Method of Fortification" contains each of the highly desirable 32 engravings – views of forts, walls, and common attack strategies.
