      - A SCARCE COLLECTION OF SHEET MUSIC WITH 13 FROM THE AMERICAN CIVIL WAR ERA AND NICELY BOUND INTO A LARGE CLOTH VOLUME WITH PASTEDOWN LABEL OF THE ORIGINAL OWNER MARY C. LOHR This was from an era where for the next generation, 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 years of their lives, the Civil War years.

Item 5 Brother, When will you Come Home? Words and Music by E.W. Locke. Cleveland, 1864.

        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.

        Historically Important War-Date Autographed Letter Signed

      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.

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.

(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.
