        Civil War "Across the Lines" private express mail envelope with special instructional label

      Richmond, Virginia 1861 - This 5.5" x 3.25" envelope has two Richmond, Virginia postal markings: a circular city postmark dated "Jul 26 1861" and a circular "Paid 10" handstamp indicating Confederate postage was paid at the time of mailing. There is also a bold strike of circular datestamp that reads, "Adams Ex. Co. * Louiville, Ky. * Jul 31 1861". The envelope additionally has 3 cent Dull Red, Type II (Scott #26) postage stamp tied with a blue grid cancel and matching blue double-circle blue postmark that reads Louisville KY. Aug 1 1861. A light blue label headed "The Adams Express Company, S. A. Jones, Agent. Louisville, Ky." that provides instructions to northern recipients for sending letters to the South. The stamp, postal markings and labels are in nice shape. The envelope has been split at the sides and bottom to facilitate display of the blue label. The lower third of the envelope front containing most of the address has been removed. The reverse of the flap fold has old tissue or archival reinforcement. In June of 1861, federal north-south mail routes were suspended, creating opportunities for private express companies to carry letters for higher fees (usually 15¢ -25¢ per letter) than formally charged by the post office. Adams Express Company had been the primary express service throughout the South and Middle Atlantic states before the war, and captured almost 80% of the relatively small "across the lines" mail service after the post office abandoned its north-south routes. Northbound letters, like this one from Richmond, needed to be enclosed in a plain unstamped envelope and addressed to the Northern recipient. They were then delivered by hand to an express office in Nashville, Tennessee. Confederate postal fees were paid at the express office or enclosed in the outside envelope. From Nashville, express couriers carried the mail across the lines to an express office in Kentucky, in this case the Adams Express Company office in Louisville where U.S. postage was applied and letters were dispatched through the postal service to their destination. Express companies only provided this service for less than three months for on 26 August, the Louisville Daily Journal reported President Lincoln directed that "Officers and agents of the Post Office Department will . . . lose no time in putting an end to the written intercourse with [the Southern states] by causing the arrest of any express agent or other person who shall after this order, receive letters for transmission to or from said states. . . ." (See the Spiegel catalog of 27 May 2010.) This is an important documentation of written communication between northern and southern civilians during the Civil War. All "across the lines" express mail is exceptionally scarce, and mail with the blue instructional label is truly rare as only four known examples have survived. (See Knowles at the Frajola website, 2017.) The last envelope with a blue instructional label (albeit in better condition than this one and with an equally rare provisional postmark) sold for $16,000 at Spiegel's auction of the Stephen C. Walske Collection in 2010.

        A Pilgrimage to My Motherland. An Account of a Journey among the Egbas and Yorubas of Central Africa in 1859-60

      London: W.J. Johnson. (1861). First. First English edition, the first with this introduction, and the first with Campbell's note to his Preface with additional biographical information, neither of which appeared in the American edition. Introduction by Sir Culling E. Eardley, Bart. Octavo. 145pp. Frontispiece portrait, tipped-in map. Publisher's brown cloth stamped in blind, titled in gilt. Gilt a bit faded, modest loss of cloth at the spine ends and a small split at the front joint, else very good or better. Inscribed by the author: "Rev. J. S. Martin, with the best respects of the Author. Sept. 20th, 1861." The very important account of Campbell's expedition with Martin R. Delaney to Africa exploring the possible return of African-Americans to the African continent. Indeed Campbell, a Jamaican of mixed race, moved to Africa after the expedition. The English edition is much less common than the American. OCLC records are confusing, but they appear to locate about a half dozen copies, only a single copy in the U.S. at Harvard. Inscribed copies are rare. .

        Lettera autografa firmata a ''Caro Enrico'' (probabilmente Mayer) (Londra), 26 aprile (s.d. ma 1861-1872), 18 Fulham Road

      1861. Biglietto (mm 110x90) scritto in minuta grafia firmato amichevolmente ''Gius.'' in cui prega probabilmente Enrico Mayer (pedagogista e scrittore italiano, di origine franco-tedesca) di voler anticipare 400 fr. A Pellegrino Rosselli: ''..dirò a Giannetta che cosa devono farne. E a voi li darò mercoledì o prima se prima vi vedo'' . Janet Nathan Rosselli (1842-1911).è ricordata come la "gentile infermiera" di Giuseppe Mazzini che lo accolse malato, sotto il falso nome di John Brown, nella sua casa livornese e dove il celebre pensatore italiano morì nel 1872. Janet si fece interprete con il marito Pellegrino Rosselli degli ideali mazziniani del Risorgimento italiano. La lettera è quindi probabilmente da datare agli ultimi anni di vita di Mazzini: il matrimonio di Giannetta risale al 1861 e l'ultima visita di Mazzini a Londra è del febbraio del 1871, dunque la missiva è collocabile in questo arco cronologico. Perfetto esemplare.

        Civil War "Across the Lines" private express mail envelope with special instructional label

      Richmond, Virginia, 1861. Envelope or Cover. Very good. This 5.5" x 3.25" envelope has two Richmond, Virginia postal markings: a circular city postmark dated "Jul 26 1861" and a circular "Paid 10" handstamp indicating Confederate postage was paid at the time of mailing. There is also a bold strike of circular datestamp that reads, "Adams Ex. Co. * Louiville, Ky. * Jul 31 1861". The envelope additionally has 3 cent Dull Red, Type II (Scott #26) postage stamp tied with a blue grid cancel and matching blue double-circle blue postmark that reads Louisville KY. Aug 1 1861. A light blue label headed "The Adams Express Company, S. A. Jones, Agent. Louisville, Ky." that provides instructions to northern recipients for sending letters to the South. The stamp, postal markings and labels are in nice shape. The envelope has been split at the sides and bottom to facilitate display of the blue label.

        A pilgrimage to my motherland. An account of a journey among the Egbas and Yorubas of Central Africa. In 1859-60.

      8vo (18 x 12 cm), pp. 145, with a small double-page map mounted on the reverse of the front free endpaper, with a lithograph frontispiece of the author; recent half calf, marbled boards, gilt-lettered maroon leather labels.£2000 First edition (a London edition also appeared in the same year). Robert Campbell [1829-84] was a Jamaican-born printer, journalist and teacher who, along with Martin Robison Delany [1812-85], made up the Niger Valley Exploring Party of 1859-60, an expedition organized by free African Americans to explore the possibility of colonizing parts of West Africa with black immigrants from North America. Campbell initially travelled to England in early 1859. He then sailed from Liverpool to Lagos and then travelled northwest to Abeokuta, where he met up with Delany, a journalist, political activist and graduate of Harvard Medical School. Acting in their capacity as commissioners of the Niger Valley Exploring Party, the pair concluded a treaty with the king and chiefs of the Egba, giving them the right to establish settlements within Egba territory. A Pilgrimage to my Motherland is Campbell's account of the expedition, and includes descriptions of Abeokuta, ethnographic material, and the text of the treaty he and Delany negotiated.The treaty ran into political resistance among the Egba and was never implemented, but Campbell himself did settle in Africa. With his wife and four children, he settled in Lagos in 1862, where he founded and published a newspaper, The Anglo-African, and was involved in numerous commercial, civic, and scientific ventures that contributed to the early development of Lagos.

        Report Upon the Colorado River of the West, Explored in 1857 and 1858 by Lieutenant Joseph C. Ives.

      Washington, D.C. Government Printing Office. 1861. Senate Edition. Cloth bound volume, 11.25 x 9 inches, in five parts: General Report (131 pp); Hydrographic Report (14 pp); Geological Report (154 pp.); Botany (30 pp); Zoology (6 pp); Appendices. Triangular water stain on plates running from the free edge to page bottom; 5.5 inches along the diagonal. Cover and first two dozen pages detached, as are the two maps and the plate entitled Profile of Route. Discoloration and tears to several of these pages; one very short tear to each map. Front cover and spine badly abraded. A pair of tinted geological maps called for not present in Part III. The damp stain to the plates is a conundrum, as the text pages adjacent appear virtually undamaged. It is almost as if the plates were damaged prior to binding--admittedly an unlikely scenario. Equally strange, the eight scenic panoramas and the frontispiece maps, the work of F. W. v. Egloffstein, are likewise undamaged. (Additional artwork by Heinrich Möllhausen.) There are seven color lithographic plates of indigenous Native Americans: the Cocopa, Yuma, Moqui, Navajo, etc. The volume is in poor condition, given the problems cited above. However, once past the first two dozen pages, the single remaining fault is the water stain that appears on plates throughout the volume.

        Golden Treasury, The

      Cambridge: Macmillan and Co., 1861. "Not Just a Book - But a Monument"Beautifully Bound by W. Root & Son[ROOT & SON, binders]. PALGRAVE, Francis Turner. The Golden Treasury of the best songs and lyrical poems in the English language. Selected and arranged with notes by Francis Turner Palgrave. Cambridge: Macmillan and Co., 1861. First edition. Small octavo (6 1/8 x 4 1/8 inches; 151 x 105 mm.). [xii], 332 pp. Bound ca. 1900 by W. Root & Son (stamp signed in gilt on rear turn-in). Full dark blue morocco, each cover decoratively bordered with a double gilt frame enclosing long lines of pointille work and sixteen inlaid small red morocco dots. Front cover with an elaborate design, within the double gilt border of ornate flowers and stems with fine gilt pointille work. twelve of the flowers have an inlaid red morocco center. Spine with five raised bands, decoratively tooled and lettered in gilt, six of the flowers having a total of another twenty circular red morocco inlays. Gilt ruled board edges and multi gilt ruled turn-ins. Blue silk liners and end-leaves, top edge gilt. Original cloth covers bound in at end. With the the circular leather bookplate of Robert Ludlow Fowler (noted landscape artist and architect) and the armorial bookplate of Bronson Winthrop on front liner. A very attractive and fine binding on the scarce first edition of Palgrave's famed "Golden Treasury". This is "not just a book but a monument. The Golden Treasury of the Best Songs and Lyrical Poems in the English Language, edited by Francis Turner Palgrave, first appeared in 1861, and it quickly came to define Victorian taste in poetry. Palgrave sifted 300 years of English verse, from the Elizabethans to the Romantics, for poems that embodied his timeless ideal of lyric poetry: 'neither modern nor ancient, but true in all ages, and like the works of Creation, perfect as on the first day.'"Palgrave's Golden Treasury, as it came to be known, was as influential as any anthology ever published. It not only decided which poems the literate Briton should know; it embodied a whole conception of poetry that is still a large part of what we mean by 'poetic.' Palgrave poetry is sincere, direct, and beautiful; it approximates song rather than speech; it deals with the most sweeping subjects-in particular, love, death, and nature-rather than the merely personal and local. Palgrave poetry is almost never urban, ironic, obscure, or verbally ambiguous" (Adam Kirsh, Palgrave's Revenge. Slate, Nov. 2, 2002).The London bindery of W. Root & Son consistently turned-out excellent work, both on fine bindings as here, and on trade bindings and sets. Packer lists the firm in business in Red Lion Square in 1899-1901, and the December 1942 issue of The Rotarian notes with regret that W. Root had been bombed out (uprooted?) of their premises on Paternaster Row during the 1941 Blitz.

M. 6 volumes, octavo (225 x 140 mm). Contemporary dark brown calf, burgundy and black morocco labels, elaborate tooling to spines in compartments separated by flat bands, single rule to boards, marbled endpapers and edges. Pages nice and clean, boards slightly marked, an excellent set. The Spectator was one of the first British periodicals, originally published daily in 1711 and 1712. Appealing to the growing numbers of middle class traders and shop keepers in London, Addison estimated it to have been read by a tenth of the city's population, primarily in coffee shops. The content was innovative and made the gentlemanly culture of letters accessible to a wide audience for the first time. The Spectator was reprinted in book form many times and remained popular through the 19th century.

Rare - any and all of Rymer's novels are rare - and an outstanding copy, made more so by being in a handsome contemporary binding of dark green half calf, spines satisfyingly rich with gilt and contrasting labels (the labels consign authorship to Errym, Rymer's most common pseudonym) - almost unknown on penny (or halfpenny) dreadfuls. On the endpapers is the inscription of John Gordon Edward Sibbald, 7th December 1866 and the bindings speak of a well-heeled reverence for what was a trashy thriller but the book itself is unthumbed. Perhaps Sibbald had another reading copy? - it seems inconceivable that it was an unwanted gift. According to Summers, The Dark Woman was issued in 104 weekly parts at a halfpenny each; in monthly parts at threepence (which seems dear) and as two volumes supplied with titles and contents on completion - as here; all are made up of the weekly parts. One of Rymer's later novels, well after his successes of the forties like The Black Monk or Varney the Vampyre, but Rymer never ran short of thrilling deeds - darstardly, dare-devil or gruesome; any page or two will exhaust the meek reader.
