1861. Civil War Beauregard's Civil War Hand Drawn Battle Plan for the First Battle of Bull Run A phenomenal battle plan showing the Confederate positions at the First Bull Run, likely in the hand of Beauregard. Executed on a bi-fold which was later opened and adhered to a mat board, which was then adhered to a larger mat. Dated along the bottom right corner of "Sept 20/73," with a later manuscript (exhibition?) label affixed at lower center reading "Plan of the First Battle of Bull Run (Manassas) drawn after the battle by General Beauregard for Miss Ironsides Jackson." 10" x 15.5" as shown opened. A few spots, toned areas and dust soiling, a few chips and minor losses at edges. The plan seems to depict two versions of the action in the vicinity of Centreville on the afternoon of 21 July 1861. The plan at right shows a larger area with the "Enemy position" (Union) at left near the intersection of the Warrenton Pike and the Sudley Road delineated as well as markers such as the Stone Bridge and Robinson House. Certain Confederate regiments are delineated in this portion of the map, including those of Kirby Smith and Jackson. The left sheet shows a closer view of the same area with the action emanating from Centreville including the notation "McDowells March/2 divisions 20,000" near the location of the brigades headed by Sherman, Keyes, and Tyler. Virtually all of the names on this portion of the plan are Confederate though including Colonel Evans in the vicinity of the Stone Bridge; Colonel Cocke in the area of Lewis' … [Click Below for Full Description]

John Ordronaux
New York: D. Appleton and Company, 1861. Hard Cover. Good binding. The first textbook on military medicine and the health of armies by John Ordronaux, a professor of medical jurisprudence, who served in the Civil War as the examining surgeon for volunteers and assistant surgeon of the New York National Guard. "This brief survey of military is especially interesting because it was completed in May 1861-before the start of hostilities. The main stimulus for the work was the British finding that soldiers of their peacetime army were twice as likely to die of disease as civilian men of the same age." The manual covers the best hygienic practices of examining new recruits, marching the army, the layout for camps, kitchens, and hospitals, and other similar practices. Evidence of bookplate removal on the verso of the front cover, library stamp on the first page of the preface, and small corner of the front endpaper now pasted to the title page. Very faint dampstaining to the top corner of the front endpaper and preliminaries. Remnants of a paper library sticker on the spine. Green pebbled cloth with gilt lettering. (DAB XIV, pp. 50-51. | Freemon Microbes and Minie Balls p. 105). Good binding.

Some wear and light staining to boards, corners bumped, spine ends worn. Contemporary ink inscription by B. Rohrer, dated 1861, on front pastedown; blindstamp of B. Rohrer, notary public, Columbia, Pa., on rear free endpaper. A touch of light soiling. Very good. In a half blue morocco and cloth clamshell case, spine gilt. An important work on wartime medicine that helped to standardize the U.S. Army's medical administrative units during the Civil War. Charles S. Tripler (1806-66) was apprenticed to an apothecary, studied medicine, and then attended West Point, receiving a commission as an assistant surgeon in 1830. He saw significant wartime action throughout the Western Hemisphere, serving in the Second Seminole War, the Mexican-American War (during which he helped establish the first army hospital in Mexico City), and Panama, before being transferred to Newport Barracks near Cincinnati in 1856 to assist with recruiting strategies for the army. As part of his recruiting work, he published his MANUAL OF THE MEDICAL OFFICER OF THE ARMY OF THE UNITED STATES in 1858, which was immediately accepted throughout the army as the last word on recruit requirements; subsequent editions were issued by the Government Printing Office. In 1861, as war approached, he collaborated with George C. Blackman, professor of surgery at the Medical College of Ohio, on this handbook for field surgeons. They cover a variety of topics, including amputations, chest … [Click Below for Full Description]

Philadelphia: J.B. Lippincott & Co., 1861. 186pp., including in-text illustrations. 12mo. Publisher's blindstamped green cloth, spine gilt. Previous owner's inscription in pencil on front free endpaper (see below). Cloth lightly rubbed, corners slightly bumped, old stain to lower front board. Mild toning and foxing. Very good. In a green half morocco and cloth box, spine gilt. This is the rare first edition of Samuel D. Gross' manual for field surgeons in the Civil War. This copy bears the ownership inscription of "A.P. Dedrick, Asst. Surg. 4th R.S." on the front free endpaper. In his autobiography, Gross writes, "At the outbreak of the war I wrote a little Manual of Military Surgery, a kind of pocket companion for the young surgeons who were flocking into the army, and who for the most part were ill prepared for the prompt and efficient discharge of their duties. It was composed in nine days, and published in a fortnight from the time of its inception" (v.1, p.142). In addition to the expected chapters on treating wounds, performing amputations, and maintaining hygiene, Gross also includes a chapter on "Feigned Diseases," helping the field doctor discern between a truly afflicted patient and a soldier who simply wants to avoid active duty. This manual was widely popular among both Union and Confederate surgeons; it was so popular, in fact, that pirated Confederate editions were printed in Augusta in 1861 and Richmond in 1862. According to Norman, "Gross was America's foremost surgeon of his day; he founded the American Surgical Association, and wrote numerous surgical … [Click Below for Full Description]

Juárez, Benito (1806-1872)
[Mexico City], 1861. Manuscript. 10.50" x 8.25. Very Good. Single page letter by Mexican revolutionary and her first constitutionally elected President. Written on laid paper with horizontal fold lines. Loss of lower left corner of sheet not affecting any content. Lightly pencilled translation attempts by a prior owner above several words.. The Juarez government had recaptured Mexico City on January 1, 1861, and he was elected President in the month following this letter. His declaration of a 2-year suspension of interest payments on international debts related to the Mexican Revolution led to an invasion by the French in 1862. The Juarez government's initial defeat of this force at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862 is commemorated annually as Cinco de Mayo. The content of this letter has not been fully translated, but discusses emigration into Mexico.

An early signature of Juarez acting in the role of President.

Furthermore, the Federal government needed a route for the transportation of troops and supplies to Utah, where the Mormon War was intensifying. The 1857 Army Appropriation Act provided governmental funds for the Colorado Exploring Expedition, also known as the Ives Expedition, in order to determine the navigability of the river. This topographical corps survey lasted from 1857 to 1858 and was led by Lieutenant Joseph Christmas Ives. The expedition's primary objectives were to chart the river's course and conduct a survey that included accurately mapping the Colorado and her tributaries in the region. As a secondary and purely scientific objective, Ives was instructed to "acquire knowledge of the surrounding country." This entailed making a geological survey and collecting natura … [Click Below for Full Description]

1861. An important Publication in the field of Natural Science. This particular example contains three volumes of pictorial atlas' which beautifully depict the hand-colored renderings of many manner of life forms. The condition of these engravings is excellent. Atlas II, however, has significant deterioration of the front hing joint to the main body/spine, but the prints within are all very well held together within, and the back cover joint is good. The volumes of text show significant foxing etc. on some, but not all, of the pages. Volumes II, III, VII, and XIII and Atlas II were published in 1861. There are instances of chipped board (minor) and insignificant shelf wear. Nevertheless, the overall physical condition is very good. I would be willing to sell the Three Volume Atlas on its own for $2,500.

New York: D. Appleton and Company, 1861. Hard Cover. Good binding. The first textbook on military medicine and the health of armies by John Ordronaux, a professor of medical jurisprudence, who served in the Civil War as the examining surgeon for volunteers and assistant surgeon of the New York National Guard. "This brief survey of military is especially interesting because it was completed in May 1861-before the start of hostilities. The main stimulus for the work was the British finding that soldiers of their peacetime army were twice as likely to die of disease as civilian men of the same age." The manual covers the best hygienic practices of examining new recruits, marching the army, the layout for camps, kitchens, and hospitals, and other similar practices. Evidence of bookplate removal on the verso of the front cover, library stamp on the first page of the preface, and small corner of the front endpaper now pasted to the title page. Very faint dampstaining to the top corner of the front endpaper and preliminaries. Remnants of a paper library sticker on the spine. Green pebbled cloth with gilt lettering.

1861. 23 full-page & 11 double-page woodcut colored illus. 22; 19;15 folding leaves. Three vols. 8vo, orig. patterned semi-stiff wrappers, each decorated on the covers with what appear to be stencilled nature motifs, orig. block-printed vignette labels pasted on upper covers, new stitching. [Japan]: n.d. [but WorldCat suggests 1861-64].This set is composed of the first two volumes of the second series and the third volume of the first series of this superbly illustrated shunga parody of The Tale of Genji. There seems to be no surviving complete set of the three-volume first series, and we can trace only two sets of the complete three-volume second series (at the Royal Ontario Museum and the International Resource Center for Japanese Studies). Our set covers chapters 28-36 (Vol. I of the second series); chapters 37-45 (Vol. II of the second series); and chapters 19-27 (Vol. III of the first series). A complete set would include all 54 chapters, but none seem to exist.This is a very late shunga and one of the last before the end of the Edo period. Almost all of the techniques that make Japanese illustrated books so remarkable are utilized here. Each illustration has, in the upper right or left hand corner, a picture scroll that shows the original scene from a chapter in The Tale of Genji with a label stating which chapter it is from. This mixed set is finely illustrated, richly colored and employing bokashi, the delicate variation of shading of pigment within the image; blind-embossing; and the very ample use of gold and silver. The depicted garments are a mixture … [Click Below for Full Description]

Very rare 1861 Handbook of Active Service owned by Civil War Colonel S.H. Leonard of The 13th Massachusetts Volunteers. This book would have served as a regimental training manual for the officers. This one was Colonel Leonard's personal copy given to him in 1861 and would have been carried throughout the war with the unit. During the Day 1 fight at Gettysburg, Leonard took command after the wounding of Brigadier General Paul who was blinded in both eyes. Leonard was also subsequently wounded in the fight and was taken from the field. He would eventually recover. This personal handbook would have been with his belongings at Gettysburg. It is signed and dated by Colonel Leonard on the 4th page. The handbook is in very good condition with solid and tight binding. The hinges are also solid. The last free end page has a torn corner most likely used for notation. A rare chance to own this handbook owned by Colonel Leonard of The 13th Mass. Vols.

United States: Civil War America, Bank of America, 115th Ohio Infantry, 1861-1863. United States: Civil War America, Bank of America, 115th Ohio Infantry. Very Good+. 1861-1863. Non-Book. On offer is a unique collection of five letters that detail several financial transactions during the American Civil War. The first letter details a financial transaction between one J. C. Anderson and a Mr. D. McLaren. McLaren is identified further on in the note as "Brigadier of the 115th Ohio Volunteers". The 115th Ohio Infantry was organized Massillon, Ohio, and mustered in September 18, 1862, for three years service under the command of Colonel Jackson A. Lucy. After being raised, they were moved to Cincinnati, Ohio. They were assigned to duty by detachments as provost guard and guarding forts, arsenals, store houses, and magazines at Camp Chase, Camp Dennison, Maysville, Covington and Newport, Kentucky, and Cincinnati, Ohio, until October 1863. They were then ordered to Chattanooga, TN, then to Murfreesboro, TN. They were stationed at Murfreesboro and along line of the Nashville & Chattanooga Railroad, in block houses and at bridges until June 1865. The Regiment was specially selected for this arduous duty because of the great number of skilled mechanics and artisans in its ranks. They were involved in actions at Cripple Creek, Woodbury Pike, the siege of Murfreesboro, "The Cedars" and Lavergne. The Regiment was mustered out of service June 23, 1865, at Murfreesboro, TN.

Alfred Ely
[Ligon's Tobacco Warehouse Prison, Richmond}, 1861. Envelope or Cover. Very good. The cover (no content) is free-franked "Alfred Ely", a Congressman from New York and postmarked with Washington D.C. Nov. 17, 1861 circular date stamp. It is addressed to General Wm E. Lathrop, a Brigadier General in the New York National Guard. It is docketed, presumably by Lathrop, "Com. On the death of Bro. Huson". In nice shape. Light edge-wear with tiny chip at top. Congressman Ely-along with other civilians-decided to observe the first major battle of the Civil War. He packed a lunch, climbed into his carriage, and rode out to the expected battlefield to enjoy the afternoon. Unfortunately, as noted by Galen Harrison in Prisoner's Mail from the American Civil War, after the Confederates had routed the Union Army and "the dust of the battle had settled, Congressman Ely had lost his carriage, his picnic lunch, and his freedom." Ely was taken to Ligon's Tobacco Warehouse in Richmond, which had become a makeshift prison to hold Union soldiers captured in the battle. There he "roomed" with Calvin Huson, a New York politician, who also was captured while watching the battle. As docketing on this cover indicates, its letter contained details of Huson's death that Ely provided General Lathrop. Huson contracted typhoid while at Ligon's, and after pleading by Ely, was released into the care of Elizabeth Van Lew, a Northern sympathizer (and future Union spy) where despite receiving care, he died in her home. Lathrop's docketing reference to "Bro." Huson, suggests he … [Click Below for Full Description]

IBN NUBBATA, Jamal Al-Din Muhammad Ibn Muhammad.
al-Matba’a al-Misriyah,, Cairo, 1861. [5 pp., contents], 261 pp., Arabic lithographed text within border, few ink annotations on margins, few wormholes not affecting text, title page foxed with few ink inscriptions. Ibn Zaydun (1003-1071) was a famous Arab poet of Cordoba and Seville. His romantic and literary life was dominated by his relations with the poet Wallada bint al-Mustakfi, the daughter of the Umayyad Caliph Muhammad III of Cordoba. He was born in Cordoba to an aristocratic Arab family of the tribe of Makhzum. He grew up during the decline of the Umayyad caliphate and was involved in the political life of his age. He joined the court of the Jahwarid Abu al-Hazm of Cordoba and was imprisoned by him after he was accused of conspiring against him and his patrons. His relationship with the Umayyad princess Wallada was quickly terminated by Wallada herself. Some attributed this change of heart to Ibn Zaydun's early anti-Umayyad activities, while others mention his rivalry with the rich minister Ibn Abdus, a former friend of Ibn Zaydun, who supposedly gained Wallada's favour and supported her. He sought refuge with Abbad II of Seville and his son al-Mu'tamid. He was able to return home for a period after the ruler of Seville conquered Cordoba. Much of his life was spent in exile and the themes of lost youth and nostalgia for his city are present in many of his poems. In a poem about Cordoba he remembers his city and his youth. This message Ibn Abdus is considered a masterpiece in Andalusian literature Size: 8vo [Attributes: Hard Cover]
