 AMERICANA, American Cow Milker Machine Poster, Original, 19th Century Ephemera
AMERICANA
American Cow Milker Machine Poster, Original, 19th Century Ephemera
[AMERICANA - 19th CENTURY EPHEMERA] AMERICAN COW MILKER MACHINE POSTER, ORIGINAL. Buffalo, NY: Express Printing Company for the American Cow Milking Machine Co. [n.d. ca. 1865]. 42 x 26 3/4 inches. Woodblock printing: Boldest typeface measures 10 inches tall. L. O. Colvin's "American Cow Milker" was patented in 1860 as the first use of teat cups with a vacuum. The milker was used in England, but the constant vacuum pressure caused problems with the cows' teats. He sold the patent in England for about $5,000, after selling over 1,500 machines. He continued to make improvements and was more successful in America where this undated broadside was published. "Triumphant Success | The Most Important and Valuable Invention of the 19th Century" proclaims the headline; the company is seeking business men to invest/sell the machines; the farmer is being courted. "A sure cure for aching hands & kicking cows." Several archival tape repairs to reverse with no loss of text. Heavy newsprint stock, printed in black. A few small closed tears to edges, and some light foxing. Very good overall. We have located a smaller version of this advertisement, but none this size. .

 ANDREWS, LORRIN, Grammar of the Hawaiian Language
ANDREWS, LORRIN
Grammar of the Hawaiian Language
1854. ANDREWS, L[orrin]. GRAMMAR OF THE HAWAIIAN LANGUAGE. Honolulu: Printed at the Mission Press, 1854. [2],156 pp. 8vo. side-sewn, brown cloth back with flexible textured-paper sides. Ink ownership at ffep. This copy is without the folding table, which was apparently not issued in all copies. Leaves are increasingly browned within the text block as they progress toward the center of the volume, though they are all easily readable, with light to heavy foxing in margins throughout, and some slightly bent corners. The cloth has largely worn away at spine; the sides are rubbed and creased at fore-corners. Nonetheless, this is a very good copy of a rare early Hawaiian grammar and imprint. (Judd 324). Andrews (American, 1795-1865) arrived in Hawaii as a missionary in 1828 and he remained there the rest of his life. Within a few years, he was appointed as the first principal of the "mission seminary," where he established a press and printed the first Hawaiian newspaper. Along with his work as a teacher and industrialist, he gave attention to translation of the entire Bible into the Hawaiian language and, for a time (1837), acted as a teacher and interpreter for certain Hawaiian chiefs. Andrews resigned from the Mission in 1841 and entered government service. After his retirement in 1859, he devoted his last years to the study and research of the ancient songs and traditions of the Hawaiian people. Besides the Grammar of the Hawaiian Language, he published a Hawaiian dictionary of some 17,000 words in 1865, on which he had begun work in 1835. (D.A.B.). .
