        An Extraordinary Confederate Photograph and Autograph Album of Dr. R. L. C. White, with his signature dated December 23, 1859 in the first volume

      Lebanon, Tennessee, 1859-1862 1860 - MORE THAN 100 SOUTHERN BOYS WHO WENT TO WAR. This is a unique photographic record of young men, from across the South, most of whom fought for the Confederacy. The collection comprises 125 rare salt prints made in 1859-1862. All but eight of the men represented in these albums went on to serve in the Confederate military, in a total of 88 units. Four fought for the Union, and four remained neutral. 13 were killed in action, 24 were wounded in action, and 24 became prisoners of war. The men fought in many of the war’s major engagements including Gettysburg, Chickamauga, Shiloh, Chancellorsville, and others. The album is heavily annotated with names, autographs, inscriptions, dates, places, fraternal memberships, and for some, eventual fates. R. L. C. White (1844-1909) entered Cumberland University at age 16 in 1859. Over the next three years, he assembled in these albums the photographic portraits and/or autographs of 139 fellow Cumberland University students and faculty. In 1862 White enlisted in Company K, 8th Tennessee Cavalry, the “Cedar Snags,” which served as escort to Gen. Nathan Bedford Forrest and later Gen. John B. Hood. Many of those from White’s hometown of Lebanon organized themselves into a militia unit called the Lebanon Greys, later Company H, 7th Tenn., led by Col. Robert Halton. A number of the young men are in the militia uniform of the Lebanon Greys or Wilson Blues. Other classmates went home to join the soldiers of their own states including Texas, Alabama, Mississippi, Arkansas, Missouri, Georgia, and Virginia. White, who went on to become a physician and a newspaper editor, has annotated these volumes with the units and fates of a number of his Cumberland friends and acquaintances, one-quarter of whom became casualties. This collection was the source for the images in Floyd & Gibson, The Boys Who Went to War from Cumberland University: 1861-1865 (Gettysburg, 2001), which provides biographical sketches of the young men. Among the many noteworthy men and amazing stories represented in these volumes are: Lt. Gen. A. P. Stewart. A faculty member at Cumberland, Stewart was one of the leading figures in the Army of Tennessee and was Polk’s successor as corps commander during the battle for Atlanta. Stewart was with Johnston when he finally surrendered bringing the war to a close. This may be the earliest extant photograph of Stewart. Lt. Andrew Willis Gould. Gould famously considered himself dishonored by his commanding officer Nathan Bedford Forrest, who accused him of losing two captured Union guns. In the ensuing confrontation Gould shot Forrest and was fatally stabbed in return. Sgt. John Ferris. Ferris was nominated for the Confederate Roll of Honor for his actions at the battle of Murfreesboro. Lt. Elisha Dismukes. Severely wounded at Second Manassas, Dismukes recovered and was wounded again at Gettysburg, where he was captured. After being released in a prisoner exchange, he rejoined his unit yet again at Petersburg before finally surrendering there at war’s end. Salt print photographs, prized by collectors today, reached their greatest popularity in the late 1850s, when they were eclipsed by albumen photographs. Salt prints of Confederate soldiers are notoriously scarce, and a collection of this size is truly remarkable. This collection, representing the entire breadth of the Confederacy and set in the context of autograph inscriptions often reflecting the sitters’ youthful ideals and aspirations, is worthy of the finest collections of the history of the Civil War, the South, and photographic history. 117 leaves with 125 mounted oval salt prints (approx. 2 ½ x 3 ½ in.) and signatures and inscriptions of 139 fellow Cumberland University students and faculty. Two volumes. Original black and brown roan, gilt-stamped “Autographs,” all edges gilt. Bindings worn and shaken, one board detached. Some fading to photographs, occasional stains, but generally in good condition. Half morocco case. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

      Philadelphia: Clark & Tackabury, 1860. Wall map, 53 x 68 1/2 inches, in full period hand-color. Expertly repaired, backed with modern linen, trimmed in blue cloth, on contemporary rollers. In very nice condition. A lovely wall map of the state of Connecticut, based on very current surveys and first issued in 1859. Richard Clark published a number of Connecticut maps in the 1850s, and no doubt drew on that knowledge in producing this accomplished state map. Nine inset maps provide detailed plans of the cities of Middletown, Waterbury, Stamford, Norwalk, New London, Bridgeport, Hartford, Norwich, and New Haven. A table gives population statistics for Connecticut's eight counties, and for the major towns and cities in each county. Grist mills and sawmills are shown, as are railroads and common roads. The mapping of the Connecticut coastline is especially fine, giving depths for the entire stretch of Long Island Sound, and showing the several islands lying off the coast. Not in Phillips MAPS.

        Microscopic photography: its art and mystery. The principles of the art disclosed, and its practice clearly explained.

      London: Frederick J. Cox, (1860). First edition. 12mo., 30 pp. Bound With: Reichardt, Oscar and Carl Stürenburg. LEHRBUCH DER MIKROSKOPISCHEN PHOTOGRAPHIE, MIT RÃœKSICHT AUF NATURWISSENSCHAFLICHE FORSCHUNGEN. Leipzig: Quant & Händel, 1868. 12mo., xv, (ii) 79 pp., with 2 plates each with 2 mounted photographs. Bound in later black linen with a morocco spine label. The first title is lightly toned, the second is fine with the original photographic plates fine and bright with deep black tones, leading to the assumption that these were made with the collodio-chloride process of J. B. Obernetter which was first introduced in 1867. "Although Victorians occasionally used the the terms photomicrography and microphotography interchangeably, the photographic processes was different for each. Microphotography involved taking a photograph of a large object and reducing it to microscopic dimensions for viewing with the aid of a microscope. Photomicrography used the microscope to photograph a magnified image of microscopic-sized specimens, from these photographs enlarged prints or magic lantern slides could be prepared for both advancement of knowledge and entertainment." Encyclopedia of Nineteenth-Century Photography, p. 1120. These two works are a perfect illustration of the above passage; the work by Nicholls provides a detailed methodology for making microscopic images, while the work by Reichardt and Stürenburg is a detailed methodology for making photographs with the microscope.

        Oak Lectern from St Augustine's Abbey Ramsgate.

      142cm high x 50cm wide. A Victorian Gothic Revival oak lectern. The reading slope over two cupboards, one with shelved interior, each with panelled doors, the side panels with Gothic trefoil inserts and pilasters with carved foliate capitals and tracery, with an integral solid platform. Lacking one shelf, a couple of capital leaves missing, but in very good condition. An attractive piece. From St. Augustine's Abbey in Ramsgate. This lectern was used in the Refectory of the Abbey for readings during meals. AWN Pugin built his famous house, known as The Grange, on the cliffs above Ramsgate in 1843-4. From 1845 he built, at his own expense and under his close supervision, the neighbouring church of St Augustine, to which were added its associated cloister, sacristy, school and priest's house. Pugin had acquired land to the north of the church on which he proposed to found a monastery, thus completing his ideal Catholic community, but did not live to see this ambition realised. On his death in 1852 control of the church passed to Thomas Grant, the first Roman Catholic Bishop of Southwark, who in 1856 entrusted it to a group of British Benedictine monks from the abbey of Subiaco in Italy. In 1860-61 a gift from the wealthy Catholic convert Alfred Luck, Pugin's friend and fellow Ramsgate resident, allowed permanent accommodation to be built for the monks. This comprised the present south and west ranges, designed by AWN's son Edward Welby Pugin. The monastery, which incorporated a school (demolished in 1973), was made a priory in 1881, and was raised to abbey status in 1896. In 1904 the present east wing was added, to a design by Edward's half-brother Peter Paul Pugin. In 1926 the Bergh Memorial Library was built to house the collection of books left by the bibliophile Abbot Bergh; the architect was Edward's nephew Charles Henry Purcell, who had himself been educated at the monastery school. Further additions, including the north range and the west gateway, were carried out in 1934-7 by Charles Canning Winmill. In 1976 a link block was added connecting the west range and the library. Edward Welby Pugin (1834-75) was the eldest son of the great Gothic Revival architect AWN Pugin. He inherited his father's burgeoning practice at the age of 18, and continued to develop it with tireless energy. The focus remained firmly on the Roman Catholic Church, but Edward developed a distinctive High Victorian style that combined increased elaboration of detail with a simplified approach to church planning. His major works in England include the churches and monastic buildings at Gorton in Manchester and Belmont in Herefordshire (churches both Grade II*). He lived at the Grange from 1862, and made a number of additions to both the house and the church. (English Heritage website). The Refectory from which this lectern came, was part of the west wing designed by Edward Welby Pugin. In 2011 the monastery decided to move to smaller premises and fixtures and fittings from the Abbey were sold, amongst some consternation, through auction.

The second edition "can be recognised immediately by the date, by the words 'fifth thousand', and the correct spelling of 'Linnean' on the title page Â… The misprint 'speceies' is corrected and the whale-bear story diluted, an alteration which Darwin later regretted, although he never restored the full text. The story is not found again in any printing, except in the American editions of 1860, until the end of copyright".

      [New York:: Horace Greeley & Co.,. 1860]. 32pp, caption title [as issued], printed in double columns. Stitched. Mild toning, Very Good plus. This "earliest Scripps biography" [Monaghan] was first printed in Chicago in July 1860. Our New York imprint was "printed from plates cast from the same type forms" as the Chicago edition [Wessen]. It touches the major events of Lincoln's life and career, devoid of some of the more romantic mythology (e.g., Ms. Rutledge) but including the far-fetched notion that Lincoln deliberately lost the 1858 Senatorial race in order to enhance his presidential prospects. Howes calls it the "most authentic of Lincoln campaign biographies." Lincoln's short-lived career in Congress is reviewed, including his opposition to the Mexican War and his support of the Wilmot Proviso. A 'must' for the Lincoln or Presidential campaign collection. Howes S247a aa. Monaghan 79. Miles 418a. Wessen 12. LCP 9235.

Yates, running for Governor of Illinois on the Republican ticket, defends the Republican platform and answers the question, "Who is Abraham Lincoln?" "Honest Old Abe" is "a man whom you know personally, know to be an honest man, an incorruptible patriot." Indeed, "Old Abe is a plain sort of a man, about six feet four inches in his boots, and every inch of him MAN." With several anecdotes about Lincoln's early life, and recollections about "the first time I ever saw Old Abe." This Speech is quite scarce. FIRST EDITION. Monaghan 93. Not in Miles, Wessen, LCP, Sabin, Eberstadt, Decker. OCLC 13649654 [6] [as of October 2014].

      Quincy:: Whig and Republican Steam Power Press,. 1860. 16pp, folded, untrimmed and partly uncut, outer two leaves loose. Else Near Fine. Calling himself an "old line Clay Whig," Browning had great influence among his colleagues. Lincoln had picked him as an at- large member of the Illinois delegation to the 1860 Chicago Republican Convention [David Donald, LINCOLN, pages 245-246]. In this campaign speech Browning denounces slavery and demonstrates that the paradigmatic Whig, Henry Clay, would have agreed with the Republican platform. Clay would surely have cast his lot with Lincoln, says Browning. "Mr. Lincoln had just been upon the stand from which Mr. Browning spoke," says a footnote to his Speech. FIRST EDITION. LCP 1744.

      [Springfield?:. 1860]. Caption title, as issued. Disbound, Very Good. This Illinois campaign document leads with the letter of Edward Bates, the old Missouri Know-Nothing, to Orville Browning, endorsing the Lincoln-Hamlin ticket, denouncing the "wanton and reckless" Democrats, asserting that "the national government has sovereign power over the Territories, and that it would be impolitic and unwise to use that power for the propagation of negro slavery." Lincoln is "a sound, safe, national man. He could not be sectional if he tried." Monaghan 27 records a separate printing of Bates's endorsement. Our document also prints the Republican, Douglas Democrat, and Breckinridge Democrat platforms; examines the pro-slavery record of Douglas's running mate, Herschel Johnson of Georgia; chronicles the disastrous results of Douglas's Squatter Sovereignty policy and his failed position on "The Everlasting Nigger Question;" and, finally, prints Lincoln's and Hamlin's letters of acceptance.

        Amsterdam, aandelen beurs van Zocher, ca. 1860.

      "Gezicht op de Beurs van Amsterdam". Lithografie in kleur vervaardigd ca. 1860 door Peter Hanrath te Roermond.Op de voorgrond rechts de Nieuwe Beurs, naar ontwerp van architect Jan David Zocher. Dit neoclassicistische beursgebouw verving het oude verzakte beursgebouw van Hendrick de Keyser in 1845.Het gebouw werd niet neergezet op de plaats van de oude beurs, op het Rokin (daar waar tegenwoordig de Industrieele Groote Club huisvest), maar aan de noordzijde van de Dam, op het Damrak, ter plaatse van de Vismarkt. De vismarkt was al verhuisd naar de noordzijde van de Nieuwmarkt.Het ontwerp viel niet bij iedereen in de smaak, maar er waren ook praktische bezwaren. Vanwege het open binnenhof en omdat de nieuwe beurs, in tegenstelling tot die van De Keyser, naar het zuidwesten gericht was, had men, vooral 's winters, vaak last van ijzige tocht. Spottend sprak men dan ook van 'het togtige wonder van Amsterdam".Nog geen drie drie jaar na de opening, werd het binnenhof overdekt. Maar de kritiek bleef niet uit. De breedte van het Damrak op de hoek van de Dam bedroeg slechts 15 meter. Toen de beurs gebouwd werd was dit geen probleem, maar toen een paardentramlijn langs het Damrak werd aangelegd naar het Centraal Station, ging dat maar net. Bovendien nam de welvaart na omstreeks 1870 steeds meer toe, waardoor de beurs nu ook te klein was geworden. Het pand werd uiteindelijk gesloopt in 1903 toen Beurs van Berlage haar deuren opende. Thans staat op deze plek de Bijenkorf.Prijs: € 475,- .

        THE ENGLISH STRUWWELPETER Or Pretty Stories and Funny Pictures.

      Imprint & edition unknown, circa 1860.. Circa 1860, imprint and edition would have been on original covers which are missing. Rebound long ago in plain mauve cloth, small 4to, page size 255 x 188 mm, 10 x 7¼ inches. 24 pages of hand coloured illustrations, all but Shock-Headed Peter reproduce the familiar post 1858 designs still used until recently. Shock-Headed Peter himself has a huge mass of long straight hair down to his ankles and he has a heavy fringe to his forehead (see image). Original covers lacking, cloth discoloured and soiled, slightly frayed at head and tail of spine and corners. Margins lightly soiled and lightly thumbed throughout, some light foxing, tiny chips to lower corners, many short closed margin tears, one 70 mm (2¾") closed tear affecting blank area only and a few at lower inner edge, neatly mended on verso with archival tape, small old paper mends on reverse of 2 pages, a few ink spots to 1 blank page, pale brown staining to 1 illustration and facing blank (pressed flowers - see image). A good copy of a scarce item printed on thin poor quality paper. The illustration of Shock-Headed Peter with ankle length hair is very close to a second design made by Hoffmann in 1858 (see Hurlimann, Three Centuries, plate VI lower right, facing page 55 and see Bilderwelt page 238), and which was used by Trim in Pierre l'Ebouriffé (1860). This illustration is not recorded in an English edition. Ours seems very early for the little cross and soup tureen in The Story of Augustus are printed as in the German version: "Kaspar" and "Suppe" whereas later versions have:"Augustus" and "Soup".

        White headed Eagle Falco Leucocephalus (Linn.) Male Yellow Cat-fish

      New York: J. Bien, c.1860. First Bien Edition. Near Fine. John James Audubon. Double-elephant Folio (39 9/16" x 27 1/16"; image: 37 1/8" x 25 1/2"), "White headed Eagle Falco Leucocephalus. Linn. Male. Yellow Cat-fish" (numbered in upper right "Plate 14") from The Birds of America, unwaterrmarked as issued, first-run chromolithograph with hand-coloring, J. Bien edition, 1860. For many collectors, one of the most desireable--yet affordable--plates of John James Audubon's "Birds of America" is this "White headed Eagle" IPlate 14)--our national bird--from the chromolithographed edition prepared by Julius Bien.Julius Bien was a New York printer who had mastered the increasingly popular field of chromolithography, a recent advance in print-making technology. Using a multi-stage process, he and his workers transferred colored images from Havells original copper-engraved plates onto six or more lithographic stones. Then, to fully bring out the wonderful colors and textures of Audubon's majesterial plates, Bien employed skilled finishing and touch-up artists to add hand-drawn lithography and coloring to recreate the subtleties of the Havell engravings.The Bien edition was created between 1858 and 1860, just before the Civil War. Initial print-runs were made under the supervision of Julius Bien and John Woodhouse Audubon. When war began, however, production ceased, so that only 150 plates on 105 sheets were actually completed. The edition was undersubscribed, so John Woodhouse Audubon suffered bankruptcy. Thereafter, a few incomplete sets were printed by others.Precisely derived from the enormous "double-elephant" folio plates of the Havell edition which was engraved on handmade, watermarked paper and hand-colored, the chromolithographic plates by Bien were exceptional examples of early large color printing. Indeed, the Bien edition became the largest color plate book published in America. Because the Bien edition of Audubons Birds of America was never fully completed, it has become the rarest of Audubon folios. Experts estimate that fewer than seventy original folios were completed during the initial printing of the Bien folios. Consider, that In 1976, Waldemar Fries was able to inventory only 49 original bound copies of the Bien edition. Our plate of the impressive "White headed Eagle" is from that initial printing. We removed our eagle from a matted, glazed, and framed piece that had once hung in a distinguished Southern estate. We had it professionally conserved; then properly rematted with acid-free highest quality stock. We recommend that purchaser's have the piece framed and glazed (ideally with Museum grade UV-protected glass) on their end to conform to their needs. By not shipping a glazed and framed piece, the integrity of such a fine, large print is also better ensured. At some point before it was framed, our "Bald Eagle" was disbound from a bound set thus leaving 13 thread-holes along the plate's upper margin. These don't affect the wonderful chromolithographic image; nor do they show because the plate has been properly matted. There are also a few minor smudges in the plate margins--and some old fingerprint stains on the edges of the blank verso--which do not detract from the bright lithograph with its subtle brown-black-green-yellow coloration and sharp registration. Compare our fine copy with others selling for upwards of $18,000.

Second edition of "the most important biological book ever written" (Freeman), one of 3,000 copies printed, the usual issue with 1860 on the title page (a very few copies only have 1859). The second edition "can be recognised immediately by the date, by the words 'fifth thousand', and the correct spelling of 'Linnean' on the title page Â… The misprint 'speceies' is corrected and the whale-bear story diluted, an alteration which Darwin later regretted, although he never restored the full text. The story is not found again in any printing, except in the American editions of 1860, until the end of copyright".

        Herr Vogt.

      London, 1860. 8vo. Bound with the original front wrapper in a fitting contemporary simple half cloth with handwritten paper title-label to spine. Internally very nice and clean. Old German library stamp to blank bottom verso of title-page. Inner hinge slightly weak. VI, 191, (1, -errata) pp.. The rare first edition of Marx' landmark defense against defamation, a seminal work in his struggle for a new human society. Written in the midst of his writing of "The Capital", "Herr Vogt" constitutes the work that took precedence over this most important critique of political economy and the work that gives us one of the most profound insights into the mind of the great Marx. "Herr Vogt" is furthermore the work that we have to thank for the influence that "The Capital" and Marxist socialism did come to have upon our society. "In 1857, Karl Marx resumed work on his critique of political economy, a process that culminated in the publication of "Capital" a decade later. He wrote a rough draft (the "Grundrisse") in 1857 and 1858, parts of which he then reworked into the "Contribution to the Critique of Political Economy", which was published in June 1859. Then, in 1861 through 1863, he wrote a revised draft of the whole of "Capital", which was followed by a more polished draft written during 1864 and 1865. Finally, he revised the first volume yet again, during 1866 and 1867. It appeared in September, 1867.The careful reader will have noticed a rather lengthy gap in this chronology. From the second half of 1859 through 1860, Marx was not working on his critique of political economy. What was he doing instead? What was so important, so much more of an urgent priority than his theoretical work?The answer is that Marx was fighting back against Carl Vogt's defamatory attack. He fought back in order to defend his reputation and that of his "party." ... " Herr Vogt", the book Marx wrote in order to set the record straight." (Klimann, Marx' Struggle Against Defamation).Vogt was a prominent radical German politician and materialist philosopher who had immigrated to Switzerland, where he served in parliament and was also a professor of geology. His position on the 1859 war over Italian unification had a pro-French tilt, which resulted in the publication of a newspaper article and an anonymous pamphlet that alleged (correctly) that Vogt was being paid by the French government. Vogt believed Marx to be the source of the allegation and the author of the pamphlet.Vogt fought back by attacking Marx. He published a short book that described Marx as the leader of a band of blackmailers who demanded payment in return for keeping quiet about their victims' revolutionary histories. The book also contained a number of false and harmful allegations against Marx, and Vogt did everything in his power to destroy Marx' reputation. Not only did he attack Marx personally, he also falsified facts and made up untrue allegations to libel the Communist League, portraying its members as conspirators in secret contact with the police and accusing Marx of personal motives.There is no doubt that this work of slander put both Marx' own future as well as that of the Communist League at stake. "Ferdinand Lassalle warned Marx that Vogt's book "will do great harm to yourself and to the whole party, for it relies in a deceptive way upon half-truths," and said that "something must be done" in response (quoted in Rubel 1980, p. 53). Frederick Engels also urged Marx to respond quickly, and he provided a good deal of assistance when Marx wrote "Herr Vogt"....Carl Vogt and the circumstances that gave rise to his defamatory attack against Marx and his "party" are dead and gone. But "Herr Vogt" and Marx's battle against defamation remain living exemplars of how one responds in a genuinely Marx-ian way-i.e., the way of Marx. Do not separate theory from practice, or philosophy from organization. Do not retreat to the ivory tower or suffer attacks in silence; set the record straight. Use the bourgeois courts if necessary. Enlist the assistance of others." (Klimann)."Marx's Herr Vogt, almost entirely unknown in the English-speaking world. It is nevertheless one of the most brilliant of his writings. Engels considered it better than the Eighteenth Brumaire; Lassalle spoke of it as "a masterpiece in every respect"; Ryazanov thought that "in all literature there is no equal to this book"; Mehring rightly wrote of its "being highly instructive even today"." (Karl Marx on Herr Vogt - from The New International, Vol. X No. 8, August 1944, pp. 257-260. Transcribed & marked up by Einde O'Callaghan for ETOL)

        A Tale of Two Cities.

      London: Chapman and Hall, 1860. First edition, first issue with p. 213 misnumbered "113," the signature mark "b" at the foot of the plate list, and the misspelling "affetcionately" on line 12, p. 134. Octavo, bound in three quarters calf over marbled boards, marbled endpapers. Sixteen plates after H.K. Browne including frontispiece and title vignette. In very good condition with some dampstaining to lower right margin, text and plates. The most famous and possibly the most popular of Dickens's novels, A Tale of Two Cities shows a master of dramatic narrative extracting gold from the ore of history. If the bloody tableau of the French Revolution were not in itself sufficient for a dozen novels, Dickens added to it a professional resurrectionist, an authentic ogress, and an antihero as convincingly flawed as any in modern literature. Here, too, are all of Dickens's recurring themes -- imprisonment, injustice, and cataclysmic violence, resurrection and the renunciation that makes renewal possible.
