52 KAUDER, Christian and Pierre MAILLARD MAILLARD, Pierre Buch das gut, enthaltend den Katechismus, Betrachtung, Gesang.
1866, 
KAUDER, Christian. Buch das gut, enthaltend den Katechismus, Betrachtung, Gesang. "Die kaiserliche wie auch königliche Buchdruckerei hat es gedruckt in der kaiserlichen Stadt Wien in Oesterreich." 1866. [Volume containing manual of catechism, prayer book and instructions, psalms and hymns], printed in Mi'kmaq ideographs (figurative lettering). 3 vols. bound as 1. Vol. 1: pp. [xii] includes inspirational engraving (leaf i-ii]) + 146 includes inspirational engraving (leaf 1-2), and index (leaf 145-146); Vol 2: pp. 109 includes inspirational engraving (leaf 1-2), and half-title (leaf 3-4) + [1 leaf] (index); Vol. 3: 210 pp. includes inspirational engraving (leaf 1-2), half-title (leaf 3-4), and index (p. 210). Original dark green full morocco,boards ruled and decorated in gilt within blind ruled border, with front b oard having an additional ornamental and episcopal device in center, spine elaborately titled and decorated in gilt, a.e.g.

The text in Mi'kmaq ideographs is accompanied in places by German language headings. 12mo. (7 1/8" x 4 7/8"). Original tissue guards to all four engraved plates are present.

This copy is one of assumedly several richly bound copies which had been designated for Bishop Colin Francis Mackinnon of Arichat, within whose diocese Kauder had been working for the spiritual benefit of the native population.

The Bishop's Latin presentation inscription on flyleaf reads: "Viro Fortis simo E. M. Dodd Judici Episcopus Arichatencis Dono dedit 1869".

The recipient, Edmund Murray Dodds (1797 - 1876), was a member of the Nova Scotia Legislative Assembly and at the time he was presented with the book a judge of the Supreme Court of Nova Scotia. He co-authored, in 1845, a Report on the condition of the Micmac population in this island [i.e. Cape Breton, NS]. For MacKinnon (1810-1879) see DCB X:479-480; for Dodd, see DCB X:232-3. Pilling, Algonquin Languages, 2057-59. TPL Second Supp.:9464 (Der Katechismus only). Akins: (Das Gesangbuch only) p. 17.

Originally developed by Chretien Le Clerq during his 17th century ministry to the Mi'kmaqs of Gaspé, the Mi'kmaq ideographs were later improved upon by Pierre Maillard, missionary to the Mi'kmaqs of Eastern Nova Scotia during the midpart of the 18th century. Maillard was in very large part the composer of the manuals and song selec tions here comprising the three volumes of this book, and which had formerly been labouriously copied by hand and circulated among the Mi'kmaqs.

The printing of the manuals and songs was finally brought about in 1866 through the efforts of Christian Kauder and his Viennese sponsors.

Kauder, born in Luxembourg, was ordained in Europe in 1840 and had preached in a number of parishes in the United States. He was convalescing at the Trappist Abbey of Petit Clairvaux in Tracadie, Nova Scotia when he developed his learned and evangelical interest in ideographic language of the Mi'kmaq native peoples of the area. Through his direction, and under the enjoyment of generous sponsorship, the printing of Der Katechismus, Das Betrachtungsbuch, and Das Gesangbuch was achieved from ideographic type cast expressly for that purposein Vienna.

Writing in some detail of Kauder's undertaking, the Rev. Angus Anthony Johnston states, "The project took many years of work, for 5,703 type faces had to be specially cut. The printing finally began in 1865, and the work was completed by the end of 1866. The total cost - equivalent to $755 in the North American monetary value of the time -- was met by the Leopoldine Society of Vienna. 'Unluckily only the first shipment of these precious books ever reached America, while the great bulk of them was destroyed in a shipwreck'." -- Johnston, A History of the Catholic Church in Eastern Nova Scotia Vol. II, p. 448.

Apart from occurrences of the binding together of all three works in one volume, two of the three titles were commonly issued as separate volumes. As J.C. Pilling writes in his Bibliography of the Algonquian Languages, "I have seen copies of the Katechismus alone, the Gesangbuch alone, and the Katechismus and Betrachtungsbuch combined..." He also states, "So far as I know, these are the only books printed in these characters."

Inscription of subsequent owner to flyleaf reads: "Ce livre tiré à un petit nombre d'examplaires en à été offert comme souvenir d'amitié par la famille Dodd à Sydney (Ile du Cap Breton) le 30 Septembre 1882 / Edmund de Lapierre".

Amidst the rich ornamentation of the spine are the gilt impressions of six ideographic characters conforming in size to their letterpress impressions, suggesting that the binder whose work is represented here was located in Vienna.

Some scattered foxing affects the engraved plates and l eaves adjacent them. Binding moderately worn along extremities. A very good copy. 12,000

53 KENNEDY, William Robert, Admiral. Letters) 11 Autograph Letters Signed. (c. 1860s - 1880s) , written while Kennedy was a young officer serving mostly on the North American Station
1860, 1860 
KENNEDY, William Robert, Admiral. Collection of 11 Autograph Letters, written while Kennedy was a young officer serving mostly on the North American Station.

All are addressed to his mother; these written while Kennedy's postings were H.M.S. Hero & Trafalgar. Most of the letters were posted from Halifax, and all posted between the 1860s and 1881.

Admiral Sir William Robert Kennedy, GCB (b March 4, 1838, Naples, Italy – d. 9 October 9, 1916, Daventry, Northamptonshire, England) who served in the Crimea and in China, wrote books about his sporting adventures, and an autobiography, Hurrah for the Life of a Sailor.

These are interesting descriptive letters, affording some glimpses into the social life of the naval officers' circle in Halifax at the time of their writing. "I am afraid it will be a difficult job to write with our band thumping away outside my cabin door, so don't think I'm out of my mind should you find a few snatches of 'Oh Susanna' or maybe a line out of the new & popular air 'God save the South'." "We arrived at Halifax this evening having bumped on a rock this afternoon in a heavy fog and much damage done." "...that Yankee scoundrel has been up to some of this pranks again at Bermuda, a frigate sails for that place tomorrow to keep him in order. I have my China medal with three clasps, it is a very handsome one..."

"No apology, it is presumed, will be necessary for the appearance of the present volume, when the circumstances that led to its publication are briefly explained. Having consented to lecture on the subject, "Tyneside Celebrities," before several local societies, and feeling the deep interest which the story of the lives of famous Northern men naturally excited, it occurred to me that a more lasting memorial of them, than the ephemeral notice given in a few popular Lectures, would be appreciated by the public." - from the Preface.
