Half title page, folding diagram at p. 123. 2 pages of advertisements at end. Original green cloth stamped in gilt and blind; brown coated endpapers.

        Regulations for the Army of the Confederate States and for the Quartermaster and Pay Departments

      New Orleans: Bloomfield and Steel 1861 - Revised edition and likely the first from this publisher. This copy belonged to Lt. Col. Stewart W. Cayce (and is SIGNED by Col. Cayce 12 times) who commanded the 21st Alabama and fought at Shiloh where his name and regiment are inscribed on the Alabama Memorial. The volume has been professionally rebacked in pebbled brown leather (replacing the original perished spine) creating a beautiful outward appearance. The interior is missing the front two endpapers, so an article affixed to the pastedown faces the title page. A small bookseller's label (Wm. E. Mickle, Mobile, Ala.) is pasted on the front endpaper and the same name is stamped underneath the date on the title page. The volume has experienced considerable humidity because the type from many pages is lightly impressed on its facing page. Col. Cayce's signature also imprints on the facing page and occasionally bleeds through to the following page. There is dampstainig on the top area of the last 70 or so leaves extending into the text of the Quartermaster forms at the rear of the book. An ink stain on the fore-edges of the last 35 leaves extends onto the pages and almost touches the text. An article from the Quartermaster General's Office, Richmond, VA, and dated September, 1861 has been glued to the rear endpaper causing offsetting to the previous pages. Additionally, there are other areas of foxing. This book, wonderful in exterior appearance, is filled with interior problems. This book was taken into battle and survived, up to that point, the bloodiest battle of the Civil War. Quite an uncomomon item. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Agricultural, geological, and descriptive sketches of Lower North Carolina, and the similar adjacent lands. [First edition].

      Printed at the Institution for the Deaf & Dumb & The Blind 1861 - Raleigh, octavo, xi, [1], [13]-296 p. and text figures. ***Content: Ruffin (1794-1865) conducted early geological and agricultural surveys in North and South Carolina; he is sometimes called “the father of modern scientific agronomy”. This volume, embracing the eastern counties of North Carolina, is an important treatise on southern agriculture. The author describes the geological development of the Atlantic slope, with particular reference to the coastal plain and tidewater regions. Attention is devoted to coastal and river navigation, drainage, soil formation and character, crops and livestock, wild game, farming practices, and more. A lengthy section considers the origin and characteristics of peat swamps and other wetlands, including the Dismal Swamp, Mattamuskeet and Scuppernong swamp lands. Also described in some detail are the various pine trees of N.C. and Virginia lowland forests. Ruffin is best remembered today for his fervent successionist rhetoric. He was given the honor of firing the first cannon shot on Fort Sumter in 1861, and at the close of the war, he wrapped himself in the Confederate flag and took his own life. ***Condition: This is a VG copy, bound in contemporary 3/4 calf and marbled boards with later endpapers. Backstrip with four raised bands and black leather title labels. The covers are moderately rubbed but sound; backstrip gilt lettering very legible. Joints and hinges solid, binding firm. Save for very occasional spotting, the text pages are fresh, clean and bright. Two old, unobtrusive library stamps in text. A nice copy of an important and scarce treatise. Nickles 898. Howes R492.

        FRAMLEY PARSONAGE

      1861 - In Three Volumes. With Six Illustrations by J. E. Millais, R.A. London: Smith, Elder and Co., 1861. 16 pp Vol III ads dated May 1861. Original blind-stamped purple-brown cloth with gilt-decorated spines. First Edition. This was the fourth of the six Barsetshire Novels, centering about the Rev. Mark Robarts and his inadvertent run-in with moneylenders. Trollope later commented in his autobiography,~The story was thoroughly English. There was a little fox-hunting and a little tufthunting, some Christian virtue and some Christian cant. There was no heroism and no villainy. There was much Church, but more lovemaking.~Trollope, in fact HAD to make this a thoroughly English story -- because when Smith Elder paid him £1,000 for it (to begin in the very first issue of their new monthly magazine The Cornhill, with W.M. Thackeray at its helm), they stipulated that it must be "thoroughly English," rejecting his Irish CASTLE RICHMOND. This was Trollope's first novel to be serialized prior to book publication, and accordingly it was also his first novel to be illustrated -- by the famous Pre-Raphaelite artist J.E. Millais.~This is a near-fine set, still in the delicate original cloth. The volumes have no re-backing, no re-casing, no restoration, in all no "sophistication" of any kind. There is some very minor edge-wear (slight loss at the foot of Vol I's spine, but otherwise just a few little nicks), and as usual some of the (original) endpapers are cracked -- though the volumes remain tight. There is NO evidence that this set ever belonged to a lending library -- which is unusual since most copies (of this title and of most all Victorian three-deckers) went directly from the publisher to the lending libraries. ~Sadleir notes that FRAMLEY PARSONAGE is found "seldom in good state," and ranks the novel (irrespective of condition) in the scarcer half of Trollope's titles; it is exceedingly scarce in this condition. Each front endpaper bears the discreet bookplate of the major collector / bibliographer Michael Sadleir, and the front endpaper of Vol I bears the penciled signature of Walter Smith -- so this one copy has belonged to BOTH of Trollope's major bibliographers! Sadleir (Trollope) 11 (with ad catalogue dated April 1861). [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

The latter had originally appeared in a shortened form in the first German edition and subsequently in the fourth American printing (both 1860).

A rare complete set of Colorado territorial laws, published between 1861 and 1876. The set comprises the session laws for the eleven sessions of the legislative assembly of the Colorado territory, plus the first edition of the 1876 CONSTITUTION OF THE STATE OF COLORADO, published just before Colorado officially became the thirty-eighth state in August 1876. Ten of the twelve works are titled GENERAL LAWS...OF THE TERRITORY OF COLORADO. The other two works are PRIVATE ACTS, JOINT RESOLUTIONS AND MEMORIALS PASSED AT THE 7TH SESSION OF THE LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY OF COLORADO TERRITORY and the aforementioned 1876 CONSTITUTION, which are bound together. Together, these represent all of the session laws for the Colorado territory plus the Constitution of the newly-formed state. Interestingly, the first volume includes the Organic Act, organizing the territory, which laid out an area identical to that of the present-day state of Colorado. It also enumerates laws governing Indians, the militia, cattlemen, the education system, and much more. This is easily the most extensive run of Colorado territorial laws we've encountered in almost forty years in business. McMURTRIE (COLORADO) 26, 33, 45, 54, 68, 80, 96, 116, 149, 202, 273, 289.

        William Penn sells 2000 acres to Enoch Flower, the first schoolmaster in Pennsylvania!

      Philadelphia, September 24, 1861. 26.5" x 20.5". "Partly-printed Document Signed, ""Wm Penn,"" 1 page, 26.5"" x 20.5"" on parchment, [London,] September 24, 1681, completed in manuscript, an indenture for 2000 acres of land in Pennsylvania to Enoch Flower. Expected folds, light toning, else very good condition with a bold signature and pendant red wax seal affixed at bottom.Enoch Flower (1635-1684) was born in Wiltshire to a barber and before his arrival in Pennsylvania had taught school for about twenty years. His 2000 acre purchase from Penn included a series of tracts scattered across Bucks and Chester counties together with some land in Philadelphia's Northern Liberties and a city lot in Philadelphia. On December 26, 1683, the Pennsylvania Provincial Council met for the first time and one of the first orders of business was to appoint Flower as school master for the colony [with period spelling retained without comment]: ""The Govr and Provll Councill having taken into their Serious Consideration the great Necessity there is of a Scool Master for ye Instruction & Sober Education of Youth in the towne of Philadelphia, Sent for Enock flower, an Inhabitant of the said Towne, for twenty year past hath been exercised in that care and Imploymt in England, to him having Communicated their Minds, he Embraced it upon these following Termes: to Learne to read English 4 s by the Quarter, to Learne to read and wite 6 s by ye Quarter, to learne to read, Write and Cast accot 8 s by ye Quarter; for Boarding a Scholler, that is to say, dyet, Washing, Lodging, & Shooling, Tenn pounds for the whole year."" Flower died of an unknown sickness in September 1684, only half a year following his appointment. The colony made no effort to organize another school until 1689 under the care of George Keith. Flower's grand nephew, Enoch Flower (1707-1773) was a close friend of Benjamin Franklin and a member of his famous ""Junto."" (Wheeler, ""Enoch Flower,"" Bulletin of Friends' Historical Association.

        Prometheus' Daughter.

      London: Smith, Elder and Co.,, 1861. A Poem. Octavo. Contemporary tan calf, raised bands gilt to spine within rolled black bands forming compartments, red skiver letterpiece to second, remaining compartments decoratively panelled in gilt, dogtooth and two-line gilt border to covers enclosing a scallop and dot border in blind, marbled edges and endpapers, floral roll to turn-ins gilt. Mild pale foxing to endleaves and very occasionally to margins, contemporary manuscript correction to p. 314. An excellent copy in a fine contemporary binding. First and only edition, inscribed "To Baron & Baroness Brantsen, o. d. Zyss, With kindest remembrances and best wishes from the author's wife. Christmas 1868, Richmond House" on the initial blank. Sir James Abbott (1807-1896) was an army officer and colonial administrator best remembered for his success in pacifying the tribal regions of the North West Frontier as commissioner for the Hazara region from 1845 to 1853, for which the city of Abbottabad was named in his honour. He was also "an imaginative writer of romantic verse" (ODNB), and was described by Sir Henry Lawrence as a "true knight-errant". In the preface to his re-imagining of the Prometheus myth he claims to have consciously deviated from the versions of Aeschylus and Shelley. The Brantsens were an aristocratic family from Arnhem in the Netherlands. Willem Gerard Brantsen van de Zijp (1831-1899) succeeded his father, Derk, as baron in 1851 (Zyss apparently an alternative spelling Zijp). Uncommon: just four copies traced in British and Irish institutional libraries (British Library, Oxford, Cambridge and National Library of Scotland), and four world-wide, all in the United States.

        "Roméo et Juliette" - Autograph Musical Quotation with CDV Photograph

      Used; Like New/Used; Like New. Scarce AMQS from the important French romantic composer and shaper of the modern orchestra, mounted together with a cdv portrait photograph (without photographer's imprint). Berlioz has penned six measures from the "Love Scene" of his Roméo et Juliette, indicated as "Adagio," and boldly signed below the the music. Dated (perhaps in another hand) at the lower left: Paris, 1861. Toned, else fine. AMQS measuring approx. 18 x 5 cm, the full presentation measuring 29.5 x 21 cm. <br style="">In Roméo et Juliette (1839), Berlioz revisits his passion for Shakespeare, and, by extension, for the woman whose renditions of Juliet and Ophelia had completely captivated him more than a decade earlier, Harriet Smithson. By the time he composed Roméo, Berlioz' love for her had become harsh reality: He was married to Harriet, but the match had proven unsuccessful and the two were effectively separated.  But Berlioz had seen Romeo and Juliet at the Odéon during the 1827 Shakespeare season, and had found himself overwhelmed, writing that "more experiences of that kind would have killed me." Berlioz conducted the first three performances of Roméo et Juliette in Paris in November and December 1839. After hearing a performance of the work in Vienna in January 1846, he revised it thoroughly and conducted the premiere of this final version in Prague on April 17, 1846. In his Memoirs, Berlioz wrote that the "Love Scene" was his favorite among his works, and described the fevered period during which he had composed Roméo et Juliette: "Oh the ardent existence I lived during that time! I struck out boldly across that great ocean of poetry, caressed by the wild, sweet breeze of fancy, under that fiery sun of love that Shakespeare kindled. I felt within me the strength to reach the enchanted isle where the temple of pure art stands under a clear sky. It is not for me to determine whether I succeeded."<br style=""><br style=""><br style="">

        President Lincoln's Innaugural

      1861 - (CIVIL WAR). President Lincoln's Inaugural: Opinions of the Press. IN: The New York Tribune, March 8, 1861. WITH: Eight subsequent issues from March 12 to May 3, 1861, reporting "The Evacuation of Fort Sumter," "The Pro-Slavery Rebellion," and "The War for the Union" New York: The New York Tribune, 1861. Nine issues. Tabloids on wove stock (16 by 21-1/2 inches). $2200.Original New York Tribune reports of events pursuant to the formal declaration of the Civil War, including reactions to Lincoln's first inaugural address, the siege of Fort Sumter, Lincoln's acknowledgment of a state of "insurrection," and the blockade of Southern ports."When Abraham Lincoln, a known opponent of slavery, was elected president, the South Carolina legislature perceived a threat. Calling a state convention, the delegates voted to remove the state of South Carolina from the Union. The secession of South Carolina was followed by the secession of six more states- Mississippi, Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, and Texas (and the threat of secession by four more: Virginia, Arkansas, Tennessee, and North Carolina). These eleven states eventually formed the Confederate States of America" (Joanne Freeman). In his inaugural address, President Lincoln had been generally conciliatory to the South, declaring that he had "no purpose. to interfere with the institution of slavery." But he went on to warn that "no state, on its own mere action, can get out of the Union." If there were to be disagreements, they would be over secession, not slavery. When Lincoln sent additional supplies to Fort Sumter, South Carolina sensed a military build-up. On April 12, the Civil War began with shots fired on the fort, which eventually was surrendered to South Carolina. These nine issues of the Tribune document those early events. Some issues separated along folds. A significant historical record in fairly good condition.

        Queensland / Central Australia / Northern Territory Maps published in "Mittheilungen aus Justus Perthes' Geographischer Anstalt," 19 maps from 1861-1898.

      Gotha:. 1861-1898.. A collection of 19 maps of Australian exploration from Petermann's "Journal," from 1861 to 1898. Augustus Petermann studied and worked with famous German and English cartographers in the 1840's, and eventually established his Geographical Journal in 1855, which is published to this day. Through his association with the Royal Geographical Society in London and later as the first head of the Geographical Institute in Gotha, he had extensive correspondence with a large number of explorers and travelers, who contributed the very latest information for the "Journal". His contacts from his R.G.S. days lead to many Australian explorations being reported in his "Journal" and nowhere else (eg. Lefroy 1864). The Petermann Ranges, in the west of South Australia, are named after him. Petermann's maps included much topographical and water system detail and were used to update such atlases as Stieler Hand Atlas. In 1869 Petermann encouraged the German push on the North Pole, organizing 2 expeditions. All maps are lithographs printed in color. [1861]. Karte von J.

"From the outset of the war, Julian John Chisolm (1830-1903) realized that knowledge of military medicine was practically non-existent among doctors in the South. Using the knowledge gained during his time observing the treatment of soldiers wounded in the Second Italian War of Independence (1859) in Milan, Italy, Chisolm wrote and published his book, A Manual of Military Surgery: For the Use of the Surgeons in the Confederate Army With an Appendix of the Rules and Regulations of the Medical Department. First published in July 1861, the manual described how to treat specific types of wounds, construct field hospitals, and manage food, clothing, hygiene and non-surgical diseases. Later editions contained detailed illustrations showing how to perform specific procedures such as amputations. The manual became one of the most popular surgery books published by the Confederates States of America. . . ." from Civil Practice to Civil War by the Medical College of the State of South Carolina. Colonel Ripple served in several Pennsylvania units during the war. He fought at Antietam and Gettysburg and marched through Georgia with General Sherman. He was captured during the night attack upon Fort Johnson and spent ten months in Andersonville Prison until paroled in March, 1865. Scarce. As of 2016, two other examples of this edition are available in the trade. Rare Book Hub and ABPC show only three examples of this edition have sold at auction.

        Regulations for the Medical Department of the Confederate States Army

      Richmond: Ritchie & Dunnavant, Printers, 1861. 2nd Edition. Half Leather. Good to Very Good. 8vo. Complete with 61 pages. (Parrish & Willingham 1991) Original marbled card wrapper with leather spine. 1.5" of lower spine missing with corresponding split at the tail of the front joint. Supple, evenly toned pages. With the outbreak of the war, Samuel Preston Moore, one of the most experienced medical officers in the U.S. Army, retired to his home state of Arkansas to open a private practice, but after some badgering, by Jefferson Davis, he agreed to serve as the Confederate Army's Surgeon General and establish its medical department. "In his correspondence to Moore, Davis described the deplorable conditions caused by the overwhelming number of casualties and a lack of Southern physicians trained in military medicine.
