      London -Smith, Elder and Co., 1861. London -Smith, Elder and Co., 1861 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A first edition of Lee's Warp and WoofScarce First EditionBound in red blind embossed cloth with gilt letteringThere is a nameplate belonging to T. Hodgson of Bratled Villa to the front pastedownParr, Harriet [pseud. Holme Lee] (18281900), novelist, was born at York on 31 January 1828, one of six children. The story of doomed rustic life told in Gilbert Massenger was so popular that the novel was translated at once into French and Italian, and Parr was invited to give a lecture tour in France, Germany, and Belgium. Her success soon enabled her to retire from teaching and buy a small house at Shanklin, on the Isle of Wight, where she taught Sunday school and acted as a ministering angel to the local population. (In fact, she was often mistaken for a Sister of Mercy. ) She wrote thirty more novels, all of which are refined in tone, somewhat sentimental, and written in an easy, unaffected style which appealed to the sense of decency of the Victorian reader. These merits, supplemented by the enthusiastic support of Charles Edward Mudie, secured her considerable popularity as a writer for children. She did, however, publish four non-fiction works under her own name: a series of depressing autobiographical essays, In the Silver Age: Essaysthat is, Dispersed Meditations (1864), The Life and Death of Jeanne d'Arc (1866), Maurice and Eugnie de Gurin (1870), and Echoes of a Famous Year (1872). Her last novel, Loving and Serving, appeared in 1883. Condition: The binding is a little loose. There is wear to the extremities including fading, rubbing and some cracking to the outer hinges. The inner hinge is strained and may fail in the post, and the rear inner hinge has failed. Internally the pages are generally bright and clean with the odd spot. There are a couple of small closed tears to the pages. Overall the condition of the book is fair..

        The Young Duke: A Moral Tale, Though Gay. With Philip Rollo; or, the Scottish Musketeers

      861 - London - Routledge, Warne and Routledge, 1861. 861 - London - Routledge, Warne and Routledge, 1861 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Two novels from great nineteenth century writers bound into one. Disraeli turned towards literature after his financial disaster, motivated in part by a desperate need for money, and brought out his first novel, Vivian Grey, in 1826. The Young Duke was his second novel, first published in 1831. Disraeli's writing is generally interesting, and his books teem with striking thoughts, shrewd maxims, and brilliant phrases which stick in the memory; on the other hand, he is often artificial, extravagant, and turgid. Critic William Kuhn argued that much of his fiction can be read as the memoirs he never wrote, revealing the inner life of a politician for whom the norms of Victorian public life appeared to represent a social straitjacket particularly with regard to his allegedly ambiguous sexuality. James Grant (18221887) was a Scottish author. Grant was born in Edinburgh, Scotland, and was a distant relation of Sir Walter Scott. He was a prolific author. Many of his 56 novels are about important characters and events in Scottish history. In 1853 he founded the National Association for the Vindication of Scottish Rights. Condition: In a half crushed morocco binding. Externally sound though somewhat rubbed. The hinges are strained but holding firm. Internally, firmly bound, bright and clean throughout. There is an ink signature to the front advertisement, and another to the title of Philip Rollo. Overall: VERY GOOD..

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

      London: W. Clowes for Trübner & Co, 1861 - 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 First edition. 4 vols., 8vo. 2 ff., 360; 384; 328; 435 pp. 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.

Item 3 Strike While the Iron is Hot! Put the Matter Through. With a beautiful picture of the Union flag in red, white and blue. Cincinnati, 1862.

        A POWERFUL APPEAL FOR PEACE BY THE CHAMPIONS OF WAR [caption title]

      [San Francisco? circa May, 1861?].. [San Francisco? circa May, 1861?].. Broadside, 23 x 14 3/4 inches, printed in five columns. Several old folds. Some minor tanning and edgewear. Very good. Matted and framed. A rare anti- war broadside, apparently printed in California just at the beginning of hostilities, and using the words of prominent Republicans and pro- Republican newspapers for the cause of non-aggression. The anonymous author of this broadside argues against war, and for reconciliation with the Confederacy, in an effort to "save what remains of the Republic from wreck and ruin, from grinding taxation and an inevitable military despotism." The argument is done quite cleverly by quoting a series of Republicans from the pre-war period, and using their own words against them. The first half of the broadside quotes San Francisco's three Republican newspapers, the BULLETIN, TIMES, and ALTA CALIFORNIA. The author then takes us "cross the mountains" to "see what the NEW YORK TRIBUNE, the most potential and approved organ of the Abolition Party of the states has said." Next come a series of quotations from California's Senator Milton Latham. Finally comes a 1848 quote from Abraham Lincoln: "Any people anywhere, being inclined, and having the power, have the right to rise up and shake off the existing Government, and form a new one that suits them better." The concluding question: "Now, fellow-citizens, are not these clamorers for war convicted out of their own mouths?" The latest source quoted here was an April 11 SAN FRANCISCO TIMES article, and the context suggests that open hostilities had scarcely begun. The broadside was done to shore up support for the "Democratic Peace Party of California," possibly in advance of the September 1861 gubernatorial election. Not in Greenwood, and we locate no copies in OCLC or in the trade.

        UTI EMLÉKEZETEK AMERIKÁBÓL

      Pest: Kiadja Heckenast Gusztav, 1861.. Pest: Kiadja Heckenast Gusztav, 1861.. [6],198,[2]pp. printed in double columns, including in- text illustrations, plus twelve tinted lithographs, one engraved plate, and one colored plate. Frontispiece. Half title. Folio. Original blue publisher's cloth, stamped in gilt. Corners bumped and worn, spine lightly worn. Bookplates on front pastedown and flyleaf. Some light foxing, but generally clean and fresh. Very good. A rare Hungarian account of a tour through the Caribbean, Mexico, and Latin America, lavishly illustrated with lithographs. Pál Rosti (1830-1874), a Hungarian naturalist and pioneering photographer in Latin America, visited the Americas between 1856 and 1858, retracing the steps of Alexander Humboldt. His experiences are recorded in this wonderfully illustrated account. Rosti's observations contain useful documentation on social history, natural sciences, and ethnology. His visit to Venezuela was the first photographic register of the country. Humboldt visited Rosti to see the first photograph taken of the Samán de Güere and exclaimed that the tree was the same as when he and Bonpland had seen it some sixty years before in 1800. Humboldt died a few days later. ^The plates include a scene in the Plaza de Armas in Havana, a fine view of Caracas, Venezuelans at rest in the rain forest, the small village of San Juan de los Morros, and bamboo plants in Trinidad. The Mexican illustrations include the Plateau of Puebla, the Ravine of Santa Maria with the Orizava volcano in the distance, a large cathedral in Mexico City, Mount Popocatepetl, and the village of Pachuca. The several in-text illustrations add much in the way of details of the flora and fauna of the region, as well as local dress and customs. Rare and informative, with wonderful plates. PALAU 279201.

        A Scarce Collection of Sheet Music Many of Which are From the American Civil War bound Into a Large Cloth Volume from the Mary C. Lohr Library

      A scarce collection of sheet music with 13 from the Civll War Era and and profesisonal bound in a large cloth volume with pastedown label of the original owner's name, Mary C. Lohr, and on spine Civil War songs. This was from an era where for the next several generations, people would pour through these old volumes kept in an old piano bench and would gather round the old upright and sing of the most important event of their lives, the Civil War years. Item 1 Hail! Glorious Banner of Our Land. Respectfully to Major General George McClellan by Mrs. Mary Marrell Moore. July 4, 1861. Rich color lithograph. Some wear and soiling on margins and closed tear Item 2 The Vacant Chair by George F. Root. Chicago, 1862. Engraved title page with four vignettes depicting a solider sentry entitled "within sound of the enemy’s guns", a small group of soldiers holding the Union Flag after a victory entitled "Battle Cry of Freedom", A Cavalry Officer directing troops saying: "Who’ll save the Left" ; A woman whose husband is serving in the war entitled "The Silent Lute" with a picture of a vacant chair and the lute instrument on the floor" at the top of the page is a very small vignette showing a large family gathering with a vacant chair. Item 3 Strike While the Iron is Hot! Put the Matter Through. With a beautiful picture of the Union flag in red, white and blue. Cincinnati, 1862. Interestingly enough it must have been revised since part of the verse depicts events in the next year as the chorus says: "Vicksburg and Gettysburg, Bright and Glorious Days, to the heroes of each fight: Grant the Meade of Praise." Item 4 The Rocky Hills of Gettysburg [to the Officers and Soldiers of the Army of the Potomoc]. Words by T.C. Porter, Music by J.B. Kevinski, Lea and Walker, 1964, Words begin: Oh dark the day, dark the hour, when Treason in her height and power, with all gathered legions came, to waste the North with sword and flame For soon as Freedom’s soil was red, with freeman’s blood, in battle shed, by rebel hands, their doom was sealed..In nameless graves, the traitors sleep, where none shall ever come to weep a monument the nation rear, the story of her bright renown and everlasting fame shall crown the rocky hills of Gettysburg. Item 5 Brother, When will you Come Home? Words and Music by E.W. Locke. Cleveland, 1864. We think of the [winter] blast that our soldier boy chills his long, weary marches; his coarse, scanty fare, the cannons loud thunder, the death dealing shot..while your campfires are burning Item 6 is not a Civil War item but reflects racism in the North.The Sensitive Coon, Medley of the Backwoods. New York, 1951. Item 7 Ole Shady; or the song of the Contraband [To Columbia’s Noble Son, Maj. Gen. Benj F. Butler. Boston: Ditson, 1861. Yah! Yah! Darkies, laugh wid me, For de white folks say, Old Shady’s free, so don’t you see dat de jubillee is a coming Item 8 I Dreamed my Boy was Home Again. Words and music by Charles Carroll Sawyer. Brooklyn, 1963. Item 9 One More River to Cross. Composed by L.L.D.J. Cincinnati: John Church, 1962. Ole Abe Lincoln am a whale, he swaller rebel head and tail…de rebel am thief and conjurer too, ..Ole Massa Clellin [McClellan] cum along. Item 10 The Flag with Thirty Four Stars or Hurrah! For the dear old Flag with every Stripe and Star. By George C.S. Root. Respectfully dedicated to Wilson Horner written by Gen. W.H. Hayward. Cincinnati: Peters, 1962. Color lithography of the flags, emblems of the red, white and blue and cannons with cannon balls, swords and guns. The rebels sing the "Bonnie Blue Flag’ but we the stripes and stars. Our Union Flag we love so true will conquer theirs stars and bars…Hurrah for brave McClellan of bold Antietam fame, …and Hooker, Sigle, Kenly too who each can show a scar. Pour out their blood this flag to save with every stripe and star With Foote, Dupont, and Rosecrans, true heroes of the West, And Halleck, Burnside and Butler too. Song says "drove old Lee and Jackson from our soil" but perhaps was a little optimistic in light of ensuring events. Item 11 Who will care for Mother Now? By Charles Carroll Sawyer. Brooklyn, 1863. Let my knapsack be my pillow, and my mantle be the sky, Hasten comrades to the battle , I will like a soldier die. Soon with angels I’ll be marching, I have for my country fallen, Who will care for Mother now? Item 12 Just Before the Battle Mother by George F. Root. Chicago, 1862. (Note the same vignettes as the Vacant Chair) While upon the field we’re watching, with the enemy in view, comrades brave are round Farewell, mother, you may never press me to your heart again You’ll not forget me mother, if I’m numbered with the slain Item 13 Maryland, my Maryland! Union words adapted and music arranged by Sep. Winner. Philadelphia: Lee & Walker, 1862. The rebel hoard is on thy shore, Maryland, my Maryland. Arise and drive them from thy door. Avenge the foe thou must abhor, who seeks thy fall, Oh Baltimore. Drive back the tyrant, peace restore. Maryland, my Maryland. Virginia feels the tyrants’ chain, her children lie around her slain. Let Carolina call in vain, our rights we know and will maintain. Our rise shall be her fall again.. Folio.

      Washington, 1861. Washington, 1861. unbound. 3 pages on blind-stamped lined paper, 9.75 x 7.75 inches, Head Quarters of the Army, Washington D.C., November 12, 1861. Written to Brigadier General Don Carlos Buell on the very day that McClellan relieved Sherman of his command in Kentucky, assigning those responsibilities to Buell, as stated in the Orders outlined in this communication. In part: "...Upon assuming command of the Dept. of the Ohio, I will be glad to have you make a careful report of the condition and situation of your troops...the main point to which I desire to call your attention is the necessity of entering Eastern Tennessee as soon as it can be done...and I hope that you will, with the least possible delay, organize a column for that purpose, sufficiently guarding at the same time the main avenues by which the Rebels might invade Kentucky. In regard to political matters - have in mind that we are fighting solely to preserve the integrity of the Union and to uphold the power of the Government. As far as military necessity will permit, religiously respect the rights of all. Preserve the strictest discipline among the troops, and while employing the utmost energy in military movements...be careful not to widen the breach existing between us and the Rebels. You will find it well to direct that no arrests shall be made except by your order or that of your generals unless in extraordinary cases...always holding the party making the arrest responsible for the propriety of his course. If the military suggestions I have made in this letter prove to have been founded upon erroneous data, you are, of course, perfectly free to change the plan of operations." Partial tearing along the natural folds and slight browning at the edges; still an extraordinary item in very good condition. Union Major General who organized the famous Army of the Potomac and served briefly (Nov. 1861 - March 1862) as the general-in-chief of the Union Army. Failing to maintain the trust of Lincoln, McClellan was removed from his commands; first as general-in-chief, then from the Army of the Potomac. Buell aided McClellan in organizing the Army of the Potomac and was rewarded for this support by being sent, in November 1861, to Kentucky to succeed General Sherman in command after the latter had buckled under the responsibility. There Buell organized the Army of Ohio which formed the basis of the future Army of the Cumberland -- the most highly trained, successful, and modern army on either side of the Civil War. He was expected to liberate East Tennessee at the same time that he protect Louisville and take Nashville. McClellan's decision to appoint Buell commander of the Army of the Ohio is arguably the best military decision he made throughout the war. The importance of this letter is cited in "Collected Works: the Abraham Lincoln Association" and "The Official Records of the War Between the States," both of which are available on line with the complete text of this letter.

Throughout his career, Knight had always been an author as well as editor and publisher. However, his first major project as an author took shape in 1837, when he resolved to produce a pictorial edition of Shakespeare's works. He started searching for authentic visual materials and began a critical reading of the texts. His edition was based substantiallyindeed, too substantiallyon the first folio edition, although he made comparisons with other quartos and, in some cases, with originals in the British Museum. His background reading led to a deep interest in Shakespeare's life and the edition, published between 1838 and 1841 (he published six later editions of the works of Shakespeare), was prefaced with a one-volume biography. (DNB)Besides many illustrated editions of standard works, including in 1842 an edition of the works of William Shakespeare entitled The Pictorial Shakspere, which had appeared in parts (18381841), Knight published a variety of illustrated works, such as Old England and The Land we Live in and The Pictorial Gallery of Arts - Useful Arts, the latter based on the Great Exhibition of 1851.
