        CONFEDERATE ELECTORAL TICKET FROM THE STATE OF VIRGINIA FOR 1861:] ELECTION, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 6th, 1861, FOR PRESIDENT, JEFFERSON DAVIS, OF MISSISSIPPI. FOR VICE- PRESIDENT, ALEXANDER H. STEPHENS, OF GEORGIA.

      [N.p., likely Richmond. 1861]. - Broadside, 6 1/4 x 4 inches. Light edge wear and minor spotting. Very good. A scarce Confederate election ticket for the state of Virginia. The handbill announces the candidacy of Jefferson Davis for president of the Confederate States, and Alexander Stephens for his vice president. It also announces John R. Edmunds of Halifax, and A.T. Caperton of Monroe as electors for the state at large, and includes a list of sixteen additional electors for the various districts, along with the name of Roger A. Pryor for the Confederate Congress. Davis and Stephens, of course, won the election, as did Pryor, who served only three months in the first regular session of the Confederate House of Representatives before joining the 3rd Virginia Infantry as a colonel. This ticket is very likely a cast ballot, with a small validation pinhole in the center, the Congressional candidate overwritten in ink (casting a vote for William T. Joyner), and with a signature to the verso, a regular practice at the time to curb ballot stuffing, and usually indicating a cast ballot (though they are typically signed in ink).

        Great Expectations

      London: Chapman and Hall, 1861. First edition, first issue. Octavo, three volumes. Bound in full calf by Bayntun. Gilt titles and tooling to the spine, gilt turn ins, marbled endpapers. In fine condition. According to G. K. Chesterton, Dickens penned Great Expectations in "the afternoon of [his] life and fame." It was the penultimate novel Dickens completed, preceding Our Mutual Friend. It is set among the marshes of Kent and in London in the early to mid-1800s. The novel contains some of Dickens most memorable scenes, including its opening, in a graveyard, when the young orphan Pip is accosted by the escaped convict, Abel Magwitch. Great Expectations is a graphic book, full of extreme imagery, poverty, prison ships ("the hulks"), barriers and chains, and fights to the death. Upon its release, Thomas Carlyle spoke of "All that Pip's nonsense." Later, George Bernard Shaw praised the novel as "All of one piece and consistently truthfull." Dickens felt Great Expectations was his best work, calling it "a very fine idea," and was very sensitive to compliments from his friends: "Bulwer, who has been, as I think you know, extraordinarily taken by the book."

        Herrick, Harrison B Group of three daily diaries for 1861, 1863, 1865, and two others for 1866 and 1867 Together five diaries

      Various places, 1861-1867 Group of three daily diaries for 1861, 1863, 1865, and two others for 1866 and 1867. Together five diaries. Various places: 1861-1867. Each 12mo morocco wallet style bindings, four black one red. Diaries for 1861 and 1863 in pencil, others combination of pencil and ink. All bindings are worn, 1863 is more so, and a couple have some tears along edges and hinges. The 1866 diary has more significant wear,m and some cracks along the edges. Group of 10 pages are loose in 1863. Condition of writing varies, but generally fairly legible. Overall the group is in very good condition.Herrick was from Syracuse, New York and served in Company D of the 110th Regiment of the New York Volunteers. However, information from the National Park Service archive suggest he served with the 12 Regiment out of New York. He appears to have served during the siege at Port Hudson, and did garrison duty at the infamous Union prison Fort Jefferson in Florida. The first diary covers his enlistment in April 1861 to the end of that year. The diary describes training and the trip to Washington, where the regiment was reviewed by President Lincoln. It appears that in July 1861 he was discharged for medical reasons, but for some reason he re-inlisted in August 1862. The diary for 1863 covers the entire year, and includes descriptions of the siege and assault on Port Hudson. Herrick seems to have been ill during this period and stayed in camp a lot.  In February 1864, Herrick and the 110th began garrison duty at Fort Jefferson, the much reviled Union prison located on Garden Key Island in the Gulf of Mexico.  While Herrick?s descriptions often seem somewhat monotonous (the weather, his health, which ships came in, his impressions of various drills), this diary is one of very few first hand accounts inside the prison. There are some interesting entries, including a prison detail discovering coffins while digging a foundation for a new building,  an officer arrested for selling whiskey to prisoners, and a prisoner being "strung up" for stealing. Perhaps the most significant content of this diary is related to Lincoln?s assassination. In an entry on April 22nd, a ship brings news to the prison "they had three prisoners slung up for rejoicing over it" Then, in an entry dated July 24th, the naval transport, Florida, brought three of the Lincoln assassination  conspirators, Samuel Arnold, Michael O?Laughlin, and Dr. Samuel Mudd to the prison.  This prison wasn?t known for kindly treatment of prisoners, the weather usually very hot and humid, and the place was infested with bugs and misquotes. The food was what you would expect, and Samuel Arnold was reported to have said the meat was so rotten "dogs ran from it." nps.gov/civilwar/soldiers

        Framley Prsonage (In 3 volumes)

      Smith, Elder and Co., London, London 1861 - Attractively bound in quarter-leather blue spine stamped in gold; with 5 raised bands, leather tips and marbled paper-covered boards. Top edges gilded. Hinges on volume 1 reglued. Wear and rubbing to the leather spines and to the corners. Clean throughout and printed on high-quality white paper. Rebound from the original boards without the ads. With all 6 engraved plates by J. Edgar Millais present (a frontispiece with tissue guard and an additional pate per volume). Tissue guard in volume 1 is missing. The fourth novel in the Brchester sequence. With the comma correctly placed in "Mark," on p. 238, line 17 of volume 3. With the striking armorial bookplate of Sir Andrew Noble, 1st Baronet. on the front paste-down of each volume. Sir Andrew Noble, 1st Baronet KCB FRS (1831-1915) was a Scottish physicist noted for his work on ballistics and gunnery. He was secretary of the British government select committee on the replacement of smooth-bore cannon with rifled artillery and carried out research on the subject. In 1859 he became Assistant-Inspector of Artillery and in 1860 a member of the Ordnance Select Committee and of the Committee on Explosives, remaining on the committee until it was dissolved in 1880. In 1862 he invented the Electro-Mechanical Chronoscope to measure small time intervals between triggers inserted into a gun to determine the acceleration of projectiles as they travelled down the barrel, allowing him to assess the performance of different powders. (Wikipedia) Anthony Trollope (1815 – 1882) was one of the most successful, prolific and respected English novelists of the Victorian era. Some of his best-loved works, collectively known as the Chronicles of Barsetshire, revolve around the imaginary county of Barsetshire. He also wrote perceptive novels on political, social, and gender issues, and on other topical matters. In 1851, Trollope was sent to England, charged with investigating and reorganizing rural mail delivery in southwestern England and southern Wales. The two-year mission took him over much of Great Britain, often on horseback. Trollope describes this time as "two of the happiest years of my life." Trollope then devised the plot of Framley Parsonage, setting it near Barchester so that he could make use of characters from the Barsetshire novels. Framley Parsonage proved enormously popular, establishing Trollope's reputation with the novel-reading public and amply justifying the high price that Smith had paid for it. The early connection to Cornhill also brought Trollope into the London circle of artists, writers, and intellectuals, not least among whom were Smith and Thackeray. (Wikipedia) First English Edition with the date of 1861 on title pages of all 3 volumes. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Cloister and the Hearth. A Tale of the Middle Ages

      London: W. Clowes for Trübner & Co, 1861. First edition. 2 ff., 360; 384; 328; 435 pp. 4 vols. 8vo. Original green cloth, spines titled in gilt. Binders ticket of Westley's, London. Bookplates of Anthony Trollope, Hugh Walpole. Professionally rebacked to the highest standard, preserving original spines, overall a very pretty copy, housed in a leather-backed slipcase. Anthony Trollope's Copy A note laid into the first volume, signed by Muriel Trollope, indicated that this copy stayed with the Trollope family until 1932. A pencilled note by Hugh Walpole on the verso of the front flyleaf, dated 1933, reveals that he purchased it from the family through the agency of Michael Sadleir. The rear endleaf bears the Quaritch collation mark. Though nowhere noted in the book, this was lot 3134 in the H. Bradley Martin sale.Set in of the latter part of the 15-century, and against a background of the Reformation, the invention of printing, and a wealth of historical characters such as Luther, Deschamps, Villon, and Erasmus (as a child), Reade weaves a rich tapestry revolving around the tragic love-story of Erasmus' parents.Charles Reade became involved in a dispute with Anthony Trollope after turning the novel Ralph the Heir into the play Shilly-Shally (1872) without Trollope's permission. This situation was somewhat unusual for Reade because he was more frequently on the other side in cases of unauthorized adaptations and pirated editions.

        THE PROGRESS OF HIS ROYAL HIGHNESS PRINCE ALFRED ERNEST ALBERT THROUGH THE CAPE COLONY, BRITISH KAFFRARIA, THE ORANGE FREE STATE, AND PORT NATAL, IN THE YEAR 1860

      Cape Town: Saul Solomon, 1861.. xii,180pp. plus photographically illustrated titlepage and sixteen mounted albumen photographs. Quarto. Modern three-quarter calf and marbled boards, spine gilt, leather label. Light scattered foxing, occasional faint offsetting from images. Photographs generally clean. Very good. An early photographically illustrated book, and the first such book printed on the African continent. The volume was made to commemorate the visit of Alfred, Duke of Saxe- Coburg and Gotha, one of Queen Victoria's sons. The book was designed to showcase the colony, which had hitherto been viewed in a less than positive light by the general British public. Prince Alfred was well- received by the colonists in South Africa, and the volume contains many positive facts about the colony's usefulness to the British Empire. The book includes seventeen images by photographer Joseph Kirkman, who was active in South Africa from 1859 to 1870. Some of the images in this volume are photographs of drawings or other artwork, but others do capture live scenes along the Prince's route, including a grand portrait of the African chief Moshesh and his advisors. The chief is pictured seated in the center of the image, dressed in a top hat and suit, holding a cane. The man seated next to him glowers at the camera and is draped in an animal pelt and holds a spear. Four men, all in Western dress, stand arrayed behind them. The images taken from life during the Prince's progress are as follows: [Untitled image on the titlepage showing several men next to a rail car full of large rocks. In 1860 Kirkman and Frederick York were employed by the Government and the Harbour Board to photograph the tilting of the first truck of stone off the Breakwater by Prince Alfred. This is, presumably, an image from that scene.] "Graham's Town, from the West" "The Reception of the Prince by a Burgher Escort near Queenstown" "The Prince's Interview with the Tambookies" "Moshesh and His Counsellors" "The Prince and His First Wildebeeste" "The Prince's Travelling Equipage" Not in THE TRUTHFUL LENS. A rare and interesting work, and notable for being the first photographically illustrated book produced in Africa.

        CIVL WAR-ERA HOLOGRAPHIC NOTEBOOK KEPT BY A UNION NAVAL GUNNER ABOARD THE U.S.S. Quaker City, ca. 1871].

      [Various American ports. ca. 1861]. - [106]pp. 12mo. Original limp calf, lined paper. Minor edge wear, front cover bowed. Pencil notes and drawing of a woman in profile on front endpapers. Minor dust-soiling to text, last two leaves removed. Very good. An engaging manuscript journal kept by "Joseph Furlong, Acting Gunner, U.S.N." per his ownership inscription on the first leaf. According to David Dixon's NAVAL HISTORY OF THE CIVIL WAR, Furlong served as the acting gunner on the U.S.S. QUAKER CITY, a heavy sidewheel steamship built in 1854 and leased by the Union Navy at the start of the Civil War. Chartered in 1861 and subsequently purchased by the Navy, the ship was outfitted with a powerful 20- pound long rifle and assigned to help enforce the Union blockade of the ports of the Confederate States of America. The journal opens with fifteen manuscript pages in pencil listing the "Table of Allowances of Ordnance Stores for 2nd Class Sidewheel Steamer" and other "Miscellaneous" supplies. This is followed by ninety-one manuscript pages in ink titled "Questions and Answers in Naval Gunnery," consisting of 396 numbered questions and answers ranging from "Q. What is a Gun made of? A. Of Cast Iron Metal" to "Q. What is the charge for a 24 Pdr Howitzer of 1310 lbs? A. 2 lbs." One of the last entries addresses the recipe for gunpowder, here given as fifteen parts nitre, ten parts sulphur, and fifteen parts charcoal. There are no notations or references for the source of these entries, but they read as class notes copied from a standard reference work. It would be another fifty years before the publication of the first BLUEJACKET'S MANUAL, the standard handbook for personnel of the United States Navy. Many sailors at this time were practically illiterate, so the oral traditions and procedures of petty officers were the basis of enlisted sailors' education. Furlong could have gleaned the material from James Harmon Ward's AN ELEMENTARY COURSE OF INSTRUCTION ON ORDNANCE AND GUNNERY: PREPARED FOR THE USE OF THE MIDSHIPMEN AT THE NAVAL SCHOOL (1846). Placed in service only six days after President Abraham Lincoln declared a blockade of the Confederate coast, the QUAKER CITY was one of the most active and effective blockaders in the Union Navy, capturing at least ten ships flying the Confederate flag. At various times, the ship patroled the entrance to the Chesapeake Bay, Hampton Roads, New York, the Gulf of Mexico, up the Mississippi River, the Bahamas, Key West, Charleston, and more, capturing Confederate ships in every port of call, including Confederate commerce raiders like the MODEL, the LILLA, and the ADELA. After taking a pounding during its service in the war, the ship was decommissioned in 1865 and sold back to commercial interests. Interestingly, during a trip to Europe in 1867, Mark Twain chose the ship as a setting for his INNOCENTS ABROAD. Later, the QUAKER CITY was renamed several times and served in the Haitian Navy before sinking off Bermuda in 1871. This manuscript journal is an enthralling read for naval historians, especially of the Civil War era. Naval operations during the war are often overlooked in favor of the famous land battles, but they were no less important in winning the war for the Union. This journal is a first-hand memento of the sailor's life from one of the defining eras in American history.

        Zwei offene Briefe an Dr. J. Spaeth (1861) . . . [with] Offener Brief an sämmtliche Professoren der Geburtshilfe (1862)

      Pest; Ofen: G. Emich; K. ungar. Universitäts-Buchdruckerei, 1861. First edition. Semmelweis, Ignaz Philipp (1818-65). (1) Zwei offene Briefe an Dr. J. Spaeth, Professor der Geburtshilfe an der k. k. Josefs-Akademie in Wien, und an Hofrath Dr. F. W. Scanzoni, Professor der Geburtshilfe zu Würzburg. 8vo. 21, [1]pp. Pest: Gustav Emich, 1861. 190 x 128 mm. (2) Offener Brief an sämmtliche Professoren der Geburtshilfe. 8vo. viii, 92pp. Ofen: K. ungar. Universitäts-Buchdruckerei, 1862. 203 x 137 mm. Together 2 items, in original wrappers, wrappers of no. (2) a little worn, soiled and chipped, spine neatly reinforced with cloth tape, upper portion of no. (2)'s title-leaf cut away not affecting text. Minor soiling. The two pamphlets preserved in a cloth box.First editions. In the 1840s, while serving as house officer of Vienna's First Obstetrical Clinic, Semmelweiss was struck by the fact that the clinic exhibited a 13.10 percent mortality rate from puerperal fever, while the Second Obstetrical Clinic, which trained midwives, had a mortality rate over five times lower. After the death of one of his friends from blood poisoning following a wound from an autopsy knife, Semmelweiss made the connection between cadaveric contamination and puerperal fever, which displays a pathology similar to the septicemia that had killed his friend. He concluded that the doctors and students of the First Clinic carried the infection on their hands from the autopsy room to the maternity wards and conveyed it to their patients during manual examination. He instituted a program of hand-washing in chlorinated lime between autopsy work and examination of patients; one month later, the First Clinic's mortality rate had dropped by ten percent. In 1847 and 1848 Ferdinand von Hebra, editor of the Zeitschrift der k.k. Gesellschaft der Aerzte zu Wien, announced Semmelweis's discovery in two issues of the Zeitschrift (see Garrison-Morton 6275 and Printing and the Mind of Man 316b), comparing its significance to Jenner's discovery of vaccination. However, Semmelweis was at first reluctant to publish anything on his methods, with the result that they were widely misunderstood and criticized. Finally, fourteen years after initiating his system of prophylactic hand-washing, Semmelweis published Die Aetiologie, der Begriff und die Prophylaxis des Kindbettfiebers (1861; see Garrison-Morton 6277), containing his observations on the etiology, contagiousness and prevention of puerperal fever and emphasizing the importance of hand-washing. Although the book's information and conclusions were of the first importance, its publication failed to bring about a widespread acceptance of Semmelweis's views and methods; instead, the connection he had made between cadaverous infection and puerperal fever was rejected by a large proportion of the medical establishment. Die Aetiologie was subject to several unfavorable reviews, to which Semmelweis responded with a series of open letters, published in pamphlet form in 1861 and 1862, in which he bitterly attacked his critics.He wrote his famous Open Letters to Joseph Späth, Friedrich Wilhelm Scanzoni von Lichtenfels and Siebold in 1861 full of desperation and fury for reluctance to accept his doctrine. He called upon Siebold to arrange a meeting of German obstetricians somewhere in Germany to provide a forum for discussions on puerperal fever where he would stay "until all have been converted to his theory." (Hauzman, Erik E [2006]. "Semmelweis and his German contemporaries". 40th International Congress on the History of Medicine, ISHM 2006,l Wikipedia).The abusive language Semmelweis used in these letters was an indicator of his increasing mental instability. He eventually suffered a mental breakdown in 1865 and died the same year-ironically, due to septicemia from an infected finger.Semmelweis issued two "Open letter" pamphlets in 1861, one addressed to Drs. Joseph Späth and F. W. Scanzoni, and the other to Drs. Eduard von Siebold and Scanzoni. We are offering the first one here. The 1862 "Open letter" is addressed simply to "Professors of Obstetrics".

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Berlin, 6. I. 1861. - 4 SS. 8vo. An einen "vielgeliebten Freund": "Wie es uns armen Musikanten mit dem Schreiben geht, darüber haben Sie ein wahres Wort in Ihrem Briefe an Friedländer gesprochen; wir setzen zehn Mal an, aber bald ist es eine Stund, die sich anmelden lässt, bald durch Zweifel uns ein Gedanke, der die Unsterblichkeit revidiert, und aufgeschrieben werden muß, bald erscheint eine agitierte Mutter, die nicht begreift, warum das liebe Töchterchen immer Skalen spielen muß, bald kommt ein fremder Kollege, der eine Wohnung miethen, zwanzig Recensenten besuchen, Rath für 10 Konzerte haben will - genug immer zieht ein entrischer Kobold uns den Griffel aus der Wand, wir trösten uns am anderen Tage noch bessere Zeit zum Schreiben zu haben, und vertrösten uns so lange bis aus den Tagen, Wochen, aus den Wochen Monate und endlich Jahre geworden ist, und allerendlichst schreibt man aus der lauter Scham gar nicht [ ]". - Kullak war ein gesuchter Lehrer und erfolgreicher Pianist in und übernahm nach einer Österreich-Tournee in Berlin den Klavierunterricht zahlreicher Mitglieder des Königshauses und der Aristokratie; 1846 erfolgte die Ernennung zum Hofpianisten. 1850 gründete er mit Julius Stern und Adolph Bernhard Marx das (spätere Sternsche) Conservatorium der Musik.

Anthony Trollope's Copy A note laid into the first volume, signed by Muriel Trollope, indicated that this copy stayed with the Trollope family until 1932. A pencilled note by Hugh Walpole on the verso of the front flyleaf, dated 1933, reveals that he purchased it from the family through the agency of Michael Sadleir. The rear endleaf bears the Quaritch collation mark. Though nowhere noted in the book, this was lot 3134 in the H. Bradley Martin sale. Set in of the latter part of the 15-century, and against a background of the Reformation, the invention of printing, and a wealth of historical characters such as Luther, Deschamps, Villon, and Erasmus (as a child), Reade weaves a rich tapestry revolving around the tragic love-story of Erasmus' parents. Charles Reade became involved in a dispute with Anthony Trollope after turning the novel Ralph the Heir into the play Shilly-Shally (1872) without Trollope's permission. This situation was somewhat unusual for Reade because he was more frequently on the other side in cases of unauthorized adaptations and pirated editions.
