Descripción

Original brown patterned cloth. Folio. 157pp. Maps. Plates. A handsome early atlas with 16 full-page engraved maps, 3 engraved plates and 1 diagram. The maps show Egypt, Palestine, Persia, Jerusalem, Greece and other lands and there is a nice hand-colored map of the World which shows the western portion of the United States as Mexican territory. The map of Palestine is double-page. The engraved plates contain multiple small vignettes of scenic views, animals and plants of biblical times and there is a diagram showing the distances from Washington of all the countries in the atlas. William Jenks (1778-1866) was a Congregational clergyman, social reformer and Biblical scholar. He spent 13 years in Maine as minister of the First Church in Bath and as Professor of Oriental languages at Bowdoin College, but the major part of his life was spent in Boston. He was deeply involved in the social and moral reform societies which sprang up in response to the industrialization of Boston and the tremendous growth of shipping after the end of the War of 1812. He was minister of the Green Street Church, founded for the benefit of the working classes and was active in the Mariners' church on the waterfront. The binding on this copy is worn with the covers detached and chipped and the spine perished. Internally the text and plates are very good with some light tanning and wear. The map of the world and one other map have some browning else the maps and plates are very good with minor soiling. The front flyleaf is torn in the upper corner. Postage extra.
