        ORIGINAL 1862 - 1865 IMPORTANT CIVIL WAR JOURNAL DETAILING THE ENTIRE HISTORY OF THE 34TH MASSACHUSETTS INFANTRY REGIMENT VOLUNTEER TO THE STEPS OF APPOMATTOX AND THE SURRENDER OF LEE

      EGREMONT MASSACHUSETTS MA 1862 - On offer is an original, superb relic of the Civil War and an incredibly detailed, historical document with a riveting narrative being the journal of William. B. Stark beginning with his enlistment July 21st 1862 until April 13th 1865 when he relates the details of Appomattox and Lee's surrender and the jubilation of the troops. Thusly his entire tour in the Civil War. Stark was from Egremont, Massachusetts near the New York state border in western Massachusetts. Mr. Stark served in the 34th Regiment Infantry Massachusetts Volunteers. This is one of the most detailed writings of one man's service we have ever read. Stark took copious notes and left no details unmentioned from a detailed listing of every battle and engagement, his fellow soldiers, officers, kit and clothing, foods eaten etc., etc. He never fails to mention names and Mr. Stark to history's benefit writes profusely. There is tremendous battle content with detailed explanations of terrain, weather and conditions. He describes the mood of the men, the affect of the conditions and writes very well too. One online source relates the following of this famed company of volunteers: 34th Regiment Infantry Organized at Worcester August 1, 1862. Moved to Washington, D.C., August 15-17.

Die Suppositionen für die Uebung basirten im Wesentlichen auf den Kämpfen, deren Schauplatz die gleiche Gegend im Jahr 1799 gewesen." (Allg. Schweizerische Militär-Zeitung ASMZ 25, VIII. Jg. 1862, p. 196). - "Der 'Truppenzusammenzug im August 1861' ist das erste grosse Gebirgsmanöver der jungen eidgenössischen Armee. Eine Division unter dem Kommando des Genfer Obersten [Jean-] Louis Aubert erhielt den Auftrag, den ins Reusstal eingedrungenen Gegner südwärts zurückzutreiben, wobei auch die Seitentäler mit Klausen-, Surenen-, Susten-, Furka- und Nufenenpass in die Aktion einbezogen wurden. In diesen Manövern bewies sich die Leistungsfähikeit der frisch mobilisierten Milizsoldaten: Elf Biwaks wurden errichtet, mehrere Gefechtsübungen gegen den von St. Galler Scharfschützen markierten 'Feind' durchgeführt und die gesteckten Etappenziele in 12 bis 14stündigen Tagesmärschen (zum Teil über schmale Saumpfade) erreicht. Die Übungen fanden ihren Abschluss mit einem Defilee in Sion." (Aus: Gotthardmanöver anno 1861, in: http://www.1861.ch/pages/seitegotthardmanoever.htm ). - Beteiligt war u.a. mit den beiden Walliser Gebirgsbatterien 27 und 55 die noch während der Restaurationszeit 1840 gegründete Gebirgsartillerie (s. http://www.1861.ch/pages/seitegebart26.html ). Zum Einsatz kam dabei als "erstes Geschütz der schweizerischen Gebirgsartillerie" wohl die 8-pfünder-Gebirgshaubitze Ord. 1845, Kaliber 11.85 cm, ein Vorderladergeschütz mit Bronzerohr der Giesserei Golay (W. Betschmann, Artillerie I, 1980, p. 13 u. 65). "Für den Transport im Gebirge wurden 4 Tragtiere benötigt. [..] Die Lasten wurden auf die Bastsättel geladen bzw. gebunden, Gewicht eines leeren Bastsattels 29 kg." (ibid., p. 65). -- Einblick in die organisatorischen und logistischen Umstände und Probleme zu einer Zeit, in welcher die elektrische oder elektromagnetische Telekommunikation noch wenig entwickelt und verbreitet war, gibt der 'Bericht des Divisions-Kriegs-Kommissärs', d.h. des beauftragen Quartiermeisters zum 'Eidgen. Truppenzusammenzug 1861' mit dessen mannigfachen fourierdienstlichen Aufgaben: "Der dießjährige Truppenzusammenzug in den Hauptketten der schweizerischen Alpen beschäftigte in verschiedenen Epochen in vorbereitender Weise die hiezu beorderten Truppenabtheilungen und Offiziere. Der referierende Kommissär wurde durch amtliches Schreiben [..] vom 25. Februar abhin, mit der allgemeinen Verwaltung und Rechnungsführung der verschiedenen Truppenkörper beauftragt, aus denen die kleine zu den beabsichtigten Operationen später einberufene Division bestand. Seine zu dieser Zeit sich eröffnende Thätigkeit ist bei Abgang des vorliegenden Berichtes noch nicht vollständig abgeschlossen, obwohl das Wesentliche dieser Arbeit als beendigt angesehen werden darf. [..] Der Divisionskommissär erhielt zu obgenannter Zeit zur Instruktion: Erkundigungen einziehen, ob in demjenigen Theil des Gebirges, den die Truppen manövrirend betreten sollten, hinlängliche Heuvorräthe zu finden seien und auf welchem Wege dieselben am vortheilhaftesten angekauft werden können; sich umzusehen, ob auf Urnergebiet das nöthige Holz zu finden sei und gutfindenden Falls einen Kontrakt vorzuschlagen; zu prüfen, bis auf welchen Grad man auf Transportmittel rechnen könne und auf welche Art dieselben sich zu einem regelmäßigen Dienste umgestalten ließen; endlich Bericht zu erstatten über die passendste Weise, Küchengeräthe, Wolldecken und andere dergleichen Gegenstände über die Höhe des Nufenen und der Furka zu schaffen. Die bezüglich des Heues eingezogenen Erkundigungen ließen wenig Hoffnung [..]." (etc., etc.; ASMZ VII. Jahrgang, 1861, Nr. 52, 31. Dezember, p. 397 ff.) Der anonym verfasste Bericht schliesst u.a. mit dem kritischen Hinweis auf einen Umstand, "der den Kostenanschlag des Truppenzusammenzuges bedeutend erhöhte, auf denjenigen nämlich der Vergütungen, die für beschädigtes Eigentum verlangt wurden. Während im Kanton Wallis die Schätzungen, durch vorhergehende Reklamationen geregelt, sich auf eine ziemlich bescheidene Summe beliefen, scheinen dagegen im Kanton Uri unbillige Forderungen und übertriebene Schätzungen eingetreten zu sein." (VIII. Jg., 1862, Nr. 1, p. 4). -- Die grosse militärische Bedeutung, welche diesem aufwendigen Gebirgsmanöver zugemessen werden kann, geht aus der gesamten einlässlichen Berichterstattung in der ASMZ hervor, die von H. 28, 27. Juli 1861 bis H. 26., 2. Juli 1862 mit einigen Unterbrüchen während praktisch eines ganzen Jahres geleistet wurde. Darin eingeschlossen ist zudem der Bericht des schweizerischen Militärdepartements über das Jahr 1861 ("Der Glanzpunkt der Uebung [sic] bildeten die Märsche [..] und die Art und Weise, wie die Truppen die ihnen auferlegten Strapatzen ertrugen", 26/1862, p. 203). Hinzu kommt ausserdem, dass die von Oberst A. von Mandrot [i.e. Louis-Alphonse de M, Paris 1814-1882 Cormondreche] 'nach den gegenwärtig vorhandenen Materialien' im Massstab 1 : 100'000 gezeichnete 'Manöver-Karte / Carte des Manoeuvres' zu den Manöverberichten in mehreren Heften jeweils mit reproduziert wurde.

We have got our uniforms now so that we are all ready for visitors, and I want you to be sure and come. I hope that we shall come down to Newburyport as a company, before we go, but it depends greatly on the officers.," [11/19/1862] ". We are not sure of having a furlough, although we expect it and shall probably get it. I staid four days over my [last] furlough but on account of good behavior, and the fact of its being my first offence, I escaped without punishment.," [2/18/1863] ". After being on the water thirty seven days, our Regt. landed at Baton Rouge on Wednesday Feb. 4th, two weeks ago to-day, an marching through the city to our camp-ground, which is two miles out from the river, we pitched our shelter tents. We are camped on what was the battle ground of Baton Rouge, and we have drilled day after day on ground in which the rebels who fell in that battle are buried, and this forenoon our company marched over one of the mounds, little thinking, I suppose, of the hopes which are buried in that heap of earth. Well, the soldier's life is a careless one in many respects and it is well it is so. Our Brigade is commanded by Col. Chapin of the 116th N.Y. Regt. a three years Regt. He is acting Brig-Gen. Our Brigade is the 1st in Augurs Division and is composed of the 116th N.Y. 21st Maine and 48th Mass. Reg'ts. Our Reg't has not received a cent of pay yet, but we expect to be paid off soon. Milk here is 10 cts a pint, Mollasses ditto and Apples 6 or 8 cts apiece, so you see that we cant get these little things for nothing in this country."

        The Christian Banner" - Pro-Confederate Paper From Union-Occupied Fredericksburg

      Fredericksburg, Va. 1862 - Newspaper. June 11, 1862. The Christian Banner, Fredericksburg, Va., J.W. Hunnicutt, Vol. 1, Number 6. 4 pp., large folio. A fine war-date newspaper published in Fredericksburg, Virginia. Articles on the front page describe the destruction of President Jefferson Davis's Mississippi plantation, the Battle of Memphis, military actions near Richmond and an account of operations near Charleston, South Carolina. Several other articles deal with the subject of slavery. One writer remarks, "the colored population of Fredericksburg are strolling about town and seem to be perfectly happy our country is ruined and slaughtered worse than beeves all on account of the negroes! Can it be possible, that man will sacrifice their country for the negro." Excerpts"We learn that the vandals have come off their boats, and battered down and utterly destroyed the residence of Jeff. Davis, and also that of Joe Davis. Their acts of destruction and vandalism in that neighborhood were complete, leaving nothing behind but a bleak and desolate track behind them.""African Slavery. The fact can be no longer disguised; let this war result as it may, African Slavery in Virginia, is already virtually swept from her territory. If she would lay down her arms, and return to the Union, her citizens might receive some remuneration for their servants from Government""Submission . This is submission with a tyrant's rod and a vengeance. And all who were opposed to secession, have been forced to submit, because a Military despotism has been hanging over them ever since. and this is freedom-Independence!""The word submission has produced a greater terror over the Southern people, than any word in the world. Submission! Submission to what? Submission to Old Abe Lincoln? Submission to Black Republican rule what power had he [Lincoln] none whatever! If all the States had remained quietly and peacefully in the Union. Lincoln could not have inaugurated a civil war upon the South"

        ARCHIVE Of SHUMAN FAMILY LETTER CORRESPONDENCE, August 1862 - September 1866.

      1862 - 1866, Divers locations: 1862 - John Shuman was a young man of 23 or so in August 1862 when he volunteered for service with the 88th Regiment, Indiana Volunteers to fight for the Union in the American Civil War. As these letters testify, he felt good about his decision, and as most men did at that time, believed that the war would be short-lived. As we know, the war lasted longer than John expected, but this Union soldier would not see the end. John fell victim to the #1 cause of death during the American Civil War Ð not gunshot, or cannon ball; neither shrapnel or saber. John died of chronic diarrhea/dysentery on August 14, 1863, in the camp hospital at Decherd Station, Tennessee. John Shuman is buried in the Stones River Battlefield National Cemetery, site 2213, with other Union dead. The letters John & his family left behind are descriptive of camp life, and in particular, the various illnesses that plagued both armies.Dec 10. '62: ". we had a hard fight the other day but our company came out safe they was seventeen wonted [sic - wounded] out of our regiment and 2 kill[ed]. Mar 30, '63: ". let you know I had all my money taken the other night . every cent I had I laid in my bed . and it was taken out from under my head ." Apr 25, '63: "I am not very well jus not for I had the ague yesterday but I am taking quinine to day to stop it." May 21, '63: " . we drawed our money the other day I drawed seventy dolars [sic] ."Jul 28, '63. John's last letter home. "I am not very well for now I have got direah very bad I am in the hospital now." John dies a little over 2 weeks later. A wonderful mss snapshot of a civil war soldier's experiences, including the very unsanitary circumstances of camp life. NB. There was some question as to the proper spelling of JohnÕs last name. In reading the handwriting, it appeared to us as Shuman. The census records have the family name as Shurman, and there are, and were, many Shurmans in Wolcottvile, Indiana, where John and his family lived. While the office responsible for removing the soldiersÕ remains from Decherd Station, Tennessee to the cemetery in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, gives his name as Shuman, the grave marker and index to the cemetery lists him as John Sherman. In History Eighty-Eights Indiana Volunteers Infantry, published in 1895, John is listed as John Shewman. In cataloging these letters, we decided on Shuman. Slight water damping to first letter, though with minimal ink blurring. Overall condition - Very Good or better. 34 autograph letters Ð 34 sheets/105.5 pp. - most with envelopes, to and from John and his family. 24 letters from John to family; 2 letters to John; 6 letters to/from Barney Shuman, JohnÕs father; and 2 letters from an Eliza Watson to Jacob Stroman (Shuman? JohnÕs brother). A complete listing of the letters in the archive, with snippets of each, available on request.

Selon le témoignage de l'auteur, rapporté par sa fille Judith Cladel, Baudelaire aida à mettre en forme le roman, qui manquait de style et de syntaxe : "Huit mois durant, il daigna me pétrir de ses mains savantes et me rendre ductile et modéré, mois si dur de pâte et si violemment excessif." (Maître & Disciple, Paris, 1951, cité par G. Oberlé dans Auguste Poulet-Malassis un imprimeur sur le Parnasse, 1996). Condition : Édition originale du premier livre de Léon Cladel et de la préface de douze pages très denses de Charles Baudelaire. Exemplaire enrichi du contrat de publication à compte d'auteur des Martyrs Ridicules, daté du 5 juin 1861, monté sur onglet. Ce document manuscrit, rédigé à l'encre par Poulet Malassis, signé par Léon Cladel et Poulet Malassis et de Broise, détaille le prix payé par l'auteur (500 francs réglables en deux fois), le tirage (500 exemplaires, dont 250 ex. remis brochés à l'auteur) et l'engagement pris par Cladel de régler les frais de livraison de ses exemplaires et les corrections d'auteur auxquelles son ouvrage aurait donné lieu sur présentation d'épreuves. Ex-libris d'Alfred Morin, gravé à l'eau-forte par Vallon. Bel exemplaire, pâle mouillure sur la couverture. 300g. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

Boards Fine; hinge Fine; pages Fine - Fine unread copy. Thoreua took back unsold copies of "A Week" from the publisher who couldn't sell them. Some copies were bound but most consisted of unbound 1st edition sheets. About which he famously said he "carried up two flights of stairs to storage." It can be assumed with some certainty that Thoreau carried the pages bound here in this particular book. There is a protective mylar cover.

        1862 Civil War Bulletproof Vest Broadside

      Newbern, N.C. 1862 - Broadside. "Good News to the Army." Bartlett & Munn, Agents for Manufacturers. Newbern, N.C., April 17, 1862. 1 p., 9 3/4 x 6 1/2 in. A remarkable broadside advertising the sale of bulletproof vests to Union forces in North Carolina in the wake of the occupation of much of coastal North Carolina by General Ambrose Burnside's Expeditionary Force. "We beg leave to say to the officers and soldiers of the Expedition, that after some delay we have received another invoice of those Monitor, or Bullet Proof Vests, which we are selling at our stand, opposite the Post Office, and as it is impossible for us to visit all the various Camps, please call and examine, or order, with measure of breast and waist, which will insure a good fit. We shall be here only a week or two longer, therefore it is for the interest of all who may wish to purchase to call immediately."Historical BackgroundSeveral firms attempted to sell such bullet proof vests during the war, with ads for body armor even appearing in Harper's Weekly. According to historian Byron Farwell, "G. & D. Cook & Company of New Haven, Connecticut, offered to Union soldiers a 'soldier's bullet proof vest' in two models, a seven-dollar model for officers and a five-dollar one for enlisted men, and for a time early in the war the Atwater Armor Company also in New Haven, produced two hundred per day. Although they were nonregulation in both Civil War armies, a few volunteer regiments were quipped with them. They proved too heavy to be practical, and the increased efficiency of weapons destroyed any value they may have had."It is not known which company "Bartlett & Munn" represented. Advertising to Ambrose Burnside's troops, who had occupied New Bern, N.C. on March 14, 1862, they name their vests "Monitors," in obvious reference to the Union ironclad who had stood toe to toe with C.S.S. Virginia in the Battle of Hampton Roads on March 8-9, 1862.ReferencesFarwell, Byron. The Encyclopedia of Nineteenth-Century Warfare (New York, 2001), p. 128.

The news generally credited for an hour or two was by the abolitionists well recd particularly the death of Mc. some even going so far as to say that if he was killed it could compensate for the loss of a battleI observe that you think there are some "celestial phenomena" developed in the political in these latter days.There certainly are developments terrestrial among which is the place of quartering on the enemy. Do you take?YoursPrentiss"Historical Background Prentiss fought in the Mexican-American War and the Civil War, rising to the rank of Major General.

        Orley Farm. With Illustrations by J. E. Millais.

      London: Chapman and Hall, 1862 - 2 volumes, octavo. Original purple wavy-grained cloth, the grain running perpendicularly for both volumes, covers blocked with conventional frame design in blind, on spines with farming designs and lettered in gold, pale yellow endpapers. Spines inevitably and very lightly sunned, a fine set: rare thus. Without publisher's catalogue sometimes found at end of vol. I ("cannot be regarded as essential" – Sadleir); 40 wood-engraved illustrations, with first state captions throughout. First edition, first issue, an exceptionally good copy. Unusually, the two volumes were published nearly ten months apart, and subsequent re-issues of each volume did not proceed in step, with the result is that sets often have the two volumes in mismatched issues. Sadleir claims priority for copies with the grain of the cloth perpendicular for vol. I and horizontal for vol. II, but his bibliographical reasoning is, for once, unconvincing. The text in both volumes of this set conforms entirely to the first issue (i.e. copies bound from parts), in matching bindings in which the grain of the cloth runs perpendicularly on both. Sadleir 13. [Attributes: First Edition]
