Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Details: This lot is composed of two identical Turkish, possibly Ottoman, ceremonial battle axes. Each is 30" long, with steel blades measuring about 5" x 5". The handles are mahogany with delicate, decorative ivory-colored celluloid inlay. The age of these battle axes is unknown, but they come from the family of Henry J. Van Lennep, who was born in Turkey and served as a missionary there from 1840 to 1869.Henry J. Van Lennep (1815-1889) was a noted nineteenth century minister, missionary, writer, illustrator, and educator. Born in Smyrna, Van Lennep was educated in the U.S. but returned to Turkey upon ordination, where he served as missionary for 29 years. During this time, he traveled extensively throughout western Asia and Egypt, aided by his proficiency in many languages. A skillful artist, he wrote and illustrated several books based on his travels. Published during a time when public curiosity about "the Orient" was high, these books were very popular, showing the scenery, people, and customs of Asia Minor, and discussing these elements with Biblical and archaeological references. He also illustrated scientific texts with the noted geologist and President of Amherst College, Edward Hitchcock. After losing his sight in 1869, he returned to the U.S., where he spent the last twenty years of his life teaching natural sciences and languages at Ingham University, a women's college in Le Roy, New York, and later serving as co-principal at the Sedgwick Institute in Great Barrington, Massachusetts, with his son, Edward. The provenance of this material can be traced directly back to Henry Van Lennep through four generations of his descendants.
