        Urging Northern Laborers to Vote Republican and Support Worker's Rights

      New York, NY 1862 - Broadsheet. The Rebellion and Its Purposes, October 6, 1862, New York, N.Y., published by The Iron Platform, 1 p., 10 1/2 x 16 3/4 in. "I maintain, my dear sir, that the war of rebellion is not a war of resistance against 'Abolitionism,' but that it is a war of resistance against Democracy." Excerpt"I am a Working Man. It may appear presumptuous in a "working man" to address the authorized representative of a great political party, at a time of profound excitement and activity like the present, upon either political or philosophical questions, but I cannot forget the fact, that if the candidates of the Democratic Party are successful at the polls, they will be elected by the votes of the Working Men of Pennsylvania, and, inasmuch as you claim their votes, it will be consistent with your dignity and your democratic principles to accord to them a hearing, even though it be through the medium of a volunteer advocate.By virtue of my brotherhood of Labor, and my right as a citizen, I claim your generous indulgence for obtruding upon your notice. Two important papers appear in the pages of these documents. The first is the "Address of the Democratic State Central Committee," and the other the "Platform," of the Democratic Party. To these I shall as brief as possible direct my observations. A class of men in the South.were determined to rule the nation in their own interest, and to convert the Government into a great national engine for their own purposes, and who found in slavery a vast and powerful political and commercial agency to effect their designs. Propagandism became their law-they were not content with "the sufficient constitutional guarantees" of which Alexander H. Stephens assured his hearers, but insisted upon making the Government an instrument for the patronage, perpetuation and extension of slavery-a local and state institution-at the expense and by the power of the whole people.The Constitution was not enough for the leaders of the treason-they wanted to override that instrument in order to destroy it. To effect this object they plotted secretly for many years, and when they believed the time had come for their crime against freedom, and against the Union and humanity-when they thought that their desperate ambition, and their aristocratic purposes had ripened, they destroyed the Democratic Party, in order that they might destroy Democracy. It was not the election of Mr. Lincoln, nor the Fugitive Slave Law-nor Personal Liberty Bills-that provoked the Rebellion. It was not the "Abolitionism of which you speak.It is plain that the bold and atrocious scheme of treason, so long cherished, so carefully matured, so systematically consummated, was not a sudden outbreak of indignation, but the most astounding development of organized perfidy on the part of men who had long enjoyed the confidence of a free people which the history of the world can produce.To the Working Men of Pennsylvania, my comrades in Labor, I simply say-Vote now for the men who are true to the cause of freedom, of progress, and of humanity.Wm Oland Bourne."Historical BackgroundThe Iron Platform was a New York City newspaper devoted to worker's issues. It was published between 1856 and 1864 and was decidedly pro-Union during the Civil War. The paper concentrated on how the Confederacy was bent on creating a government that would destroy the rights of free labor. The war was more than a question of control of the government and benefits distributed, it was instead a "contest.and it is of the utmost importance that every working man understand it clearly. If he would be a freeman, and enjoy the blessings of liberty for himself and his children-if he would be true to himself and the working men of the South-if he would be true to the interests of Labor throughout the world he must work and vote to overthrow rebellion and treason and maintain the government at every cost."Long before he became preside.

        The Lord Mayor of London

      sp;- London - Chapman and Hall 1862 - An uncommon first edition of this historical novel by William Harrison Ainsworth. One of the most difficult to source. Fading to spines as normally seen. No half titles called for. Complete in three volumes. William Harrison Ainsworth (4 February 1805 3 January 1882) was an English historical novelist born in Manchester. He trained as a lawyer, but the legal profession held no attraction for him. While completing his legal studies in London he met the publisher John Ebers, at that time manager of the King's Theatre, Haymarket. Ebers introduced Ainsworth to literary and dramatic circles, and to his daughter, who became Ainsworth's wife. Ainsworth briefly tried the publishing business, but soon gave it up and devoted himself to journalism and literature. His first success as a writer came with Rookwood in 1834, which features Dick Turpin as its leading character. A stream of 39 novels followed, the last of which appeared in 1881. Ainsworth died in Reigate on 3 January 1882. Condition: In cloth covered bindings. Externally, sound with shelfwear and bumping. Internally, firmly bound, bright and generally clean clean with the odd spot and mark. Publisher's ink stamp to each title page. Overall: VERY GOOD [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

(Blake includes a 26-line excerpt.) The author had planned extensive revisions, but Innocêncio notes that they did not appear in this edition.The author (secular name Francisco Carlos da Silva) was born in Rio de Janeiro in 1768, and died there in 1829. He entered the Franciscan order at age 13, and lived for some years at Macau.---- Sacramento Blake III, 121-3. Innocêncio II, 362-4; IX, 275. NUC: MH, NNH.

      Fullarton, London 1862 - An important map of BC done before the famous Trutch map of BC. The areas of the Fraser Valley Gold rush and the Cariboo Gold Rush are outlined on the map.The time that the map was done coincides with the end of the Faser Canyon Gold rush in 1860 and the beginning of the Cariboo Gold Rush.Faser Canyon Gold rush occurred in 1858 after gold was discovered on the Thompson River at its confluence with the Nicoamen River, a few miles upstream from the Thompson's confluence with the Fraser at present-day Lytton.The Cariboo Gold Rush was a gold rush in the Canadian province of British Columbia. Although the first gold discovery was made in 1859 at Horsefly Creek, followed by more strikes at Keithley Creek and Antler Creek in 1860, the actual rush did not begin until 1861, when these discoveries were widely publicized.

        Urania.

(3 ll.), 344 pp. 8°, publisher's quarter morocco, cloth sides blocked in gilt and blind (light wear, front cover spotted), spine richly gilt with raised bands in five compartments, text-block edges gilt, endleaves of glazed paper embossed in a moiré silk pattern. Some scattered minor stains, mostly marginal. Overall in very good to fine condition. ---- FIRST EDITION of this collection of 100 poems addressed to the poet's wife, on a wide variety of subjects and in varying meters.Gonçalves de Magalhães (1811-1882, a native of Rio de Janeiro) was an important author of nineteenth-century Brazilian fiction and poetry. Inspired by the European Romantics, he founded @Niterói: Revista brasiliense in Paris in 1836, and was considered the elder member of the new Romantic school when he returned to Brazil. His notable work in the Romantic style is @Suspiros poeticos e saudades, Paris 1836. In his later works, including the @Confederação and @Antônio José, he returned to a more classicizing style.Magalhães's work has suffered the extremes of lavish praise and bitter condemnation. José de Alencar said of the @Confederação, "Bem sei que o Sr. Magalhães não teve pretensões de fazer uma Ilíada ou Odisséia americana; mas quem não é Homero deve ao menos procurar imitar os mestres; quem não é capaz de criar um poema, deve ao menos criar no poema alguma coisa" (quoted in @Nossos Clássicos 55, p. 107; see also pp. 10-12). Putnam, on the other hand, calls him "one of the greatest poets that Brazil has produced ? he is near to being the national poet, one who was enthusiastically acclaimed by the people even before he was by the elite" (p. 111).---- Innocêncio IX, 143: calling for iv, 344 pp. Sacramento Blake II, 219: without collation.

        ADMINISTRATOR&#39;S SALE! WILL BE SOLD, BEFORE THE COURT- HOUSE DOOR IN CALHOUN, GORDON COUNTY, GEO.,...THE LAND & NEGROES BELONGING TO THE ESTATE OF BRIAN GREER, DECEASED

      [Atlanta]: Southern Confederacy Job Office Print, Nov. 1, 1862.. Broadside, 15 1/2 x 10 3/4 inches. Old folds and wrinkles. Sheet tanned and a bit foxed, some wear at edges. Good. An unrecorded Confederate slave sale broadside, giving details of an 1862 auction of slaves and land in Georgia. The date of the sale was Tuesday, Dec. 2, 1862 and was held in Calhoun, Georgia, about seventy miles north of Atlanta. It is noteworthy that this sale was scheduled to take place just two months after Abraham Lincoln&#39;s order declaring the freedom of all slaves in the Confederate states. The text states that the land belongs to the estate of Brian Greer, and describes it thusly: "The tract of land contains six hundred and forty acres, more or less, and is situated upon the waters of Oostanaula River...the land is remarkably level, well watered, and is adapted to grain, cotton or stock." It is noted that the Dalton and Jackson Rail Road line will soon pass nearby, and the agricultural qualities of the land are also touted. Specific details about the slaves being offered are not given, though the land is described as having "negro cabins for twenty or thirty hands." Though no place of publication is listed, there was a "Southern Confederacy Job Office Print" in Atlanta. Not in Parrish & Willingham, nor in Hummel or on OCLC. Rare, and good evidence of the Confederacy&#39;s continuing commerce in humans, even in the midst of the Emancipation Proclamation.

      Rochester Press ("Set-up, and Imprinted, in Leisure-time, by Edwin Roffe"), London 1862 - Small 4to. (6.75" x 8.5"). 4ff., 11 + 21 + 7 + 3 + 3 + 7 + 13 pp. Illustrated throughout with line engraved by Roffe. ADDED: 11 pp. ("Sundry Slips") + 6 pp. ("Basket of Bright Berries") PRIVATELY PRINTED FUNERAL INSCRIPTIONS, LIMITED TO JUST 16 (SIXTEEN) COPIES, "set-up, and Imprinted, in Leisure-time, by Edwin Roffe". A rather eccentric and extraordinary romp, based on John Weever's 1631 book "Ancient Funerall Monuments." It consists of no less than 7 short books, issued together, recounting various travels through graveyards, by graveyards, or just thinking about old friends who are in graveyards. BOUND WITH OUR COPY ARE TWO ADDITIONAL BOOKLETS (both limited to just 16 copies): "Sundry Slips of Yew, set to the Memory of Divers Citizens of London. Inscriptions from Church-Yard Tombs" (1864), 11 pp. NOT IN DOBELL; OCLC lists only 2 copies worldwide (none in America). WITH: "A Basket of Bright Berries from the Yew Trees of Paradise" (1864), 6 pp. NOT IN DOBELL; NOT IN OCLC. Roffe's "Walks in the Way of Old Weever" contains a number of funeral inscriptions, "copied by Mr. Roffe from the original monuments. He named his work as above, in veneration of the memory of Weever, the author of 'Ancient Funerall Monuments.' Mr. Roffe's book contains many curious and interesting epitaphs, with notes upon their peculiarities, and upon the person commemorated. The collector tells us that his book contains only a small portion of the many inscriptions he had gathered together, all of which he had once hoped to preserve in print" (Bertram Dobell, Catalogue of Books printed for Private Circulation, 1906, p. 155). Roffe, an antiquarian, printer and engraver, was not ridiculing Weever herein, but was obviously enjoying his playful emulations of the 17th century "connoisseur of graveyards, tobacco-enthusiast, sycophant, satirist, dwarf (and) penner of dirty ditties" (Ian Wright). It is not only the text, but Roffe's typographical style, flourishes and enthusiasm, which seems to gently mock other, more serious Victorian books of the period, and all one can say in the end is that the entire production is an outstanding example of the truly Private Press. Other similar efforts by Roffe (all privately printed by him and limited to 16 copies) include "British Monumental Inscriptions; gathered occasionally, from divers Churchyards" (1859-1861) and "The Tomb Seeker. Funeral Records" (1863); OCLC lists only a handful of copies in this hemisphere. Our copy appears to be the only one in private ownership. VERY GOOD CONDITION (endpapers spotted, minor wear to binding extremities); an attractive copy of a charming and unique book Bound in contemporary dark brown quarter calf over patterned brown cloth, gilt spine title and urns [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

London: Saunders, Otley, and Co., 1862. First Edition. Pp xi, 267, folding map frontispiece., one plate leaf (opposite p.95). 8vo, orig. half calf with raised bands and marbled boards. Sabin 19602, Hallett, Bermuda in Print (2nd. ed) p.69. Not inTPL or Lande. The author describes his impressions of the voyage on whichH.R.H. Prince Alfred was a midshipman, visiting most of the West India islands with good cameo descriptions. The heart of the book consists of the author's getlemanly appreciations of Nova Scotia- Ship Harbour, Arichat, Louisbourg, Sydney- and especially of Halifax. His lively accounts of inter-shipboat races, of cricket between the officers of the St. George and those ofthe garrison, of his crewmates' amateur theatricals at the "Theatre RoyalSpring Gardens", present a vivid portrait of a high-Victorian provincial culture; and one, apparently, of some notoriety: "It is astonishing how manynaval and military officers get caught in the matrimonial noose at Halifax.But allow me to give one warning- They are all cousins; so beware what yousay." With numerous interesting diversions, including one on the several methods of lobster-catching employed by the ladies of the town.

Cloth a little rubbed and soiled, now neatly restored, the spines relined and the corners stiffened, hinges tightened, map with a couple of tears, no loss, laid down on Japanese tissue, light toning, a very good set. First editions. Important and uncommon. "In 1865 the duke of Argyll concluded, &#39;When the records of our Empire in the East are closed, Lord Dalhousie&#39;s administration will be counted with the greatest that have gone before it&#39; . It is a measure of Dalhousie&#39;s achievement that this verdict still holds true, and his career is seen as crucially important both by historians of the British empire in the East and by those of the emergence of India as a modern nation. Fittingly, Dalhousie Road still remains in New Delhi as a reminder to both traditions" (ODNB).

        Burning of the Steamship &#147;Golden Gate&#148;

      Currier and Ives - Currier and Ives; Burning of the Steamship &#147;Golden Gate,&#148; July 27, 1862; New York: 19th Century; Hand-colored lithograph; Sheet size: 10 1/2 x 14 inches. This dramatic scene published by Currier and Ives depicts the terrible destruction by fire of the Pacific mail steamship the S.S. Golden Gate in 1862. The S.S. Golden Gate had been built in 1851, and was one of the fastest steamers on the west coast. The ship left San Francisco on July 21st, bound for Panama, and sunk in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Manzanilla, Mexico. 180 of the 338 passengers perished in the disaster. The publishing firm of Currier & Ives created the most popular and highly regarded lithographs of quintessentially American scenes ever produced. The quality, vast scope and engagingly populist style of their works have made their names synonymous with an idealistic vision of 19th-century American promise and optimism. Nathaniel Currier began his lithographic career as an apprentice in 1828. By the mid-1830&#146;s he had established his own firm on Spruce Street in New York City. In 1857 James Ives became a partner in the flourishing business, which went on to produce over 7,000 lithographs by 1907. Currier & Ives was undoubtedly the most prolific firm of lithographers in America, its output greater than that of all the other firms combined. The remarkable scope of this production was matched by the company&#146;s ability to anticipate popular themes and subject matter. Among their many works are lithographs depicting sporting, railroad and rural scenes, marine, and western views, as well as foreign and domestic city views, historical tableaux, and a wide range of sentimental, morally instructive and advertising images.

        On the Day He was Promoted to Rear Admiral, Farragut Writes from His Flagship During the Bombardment of Vicksburg, Mississippi

      Vicksburg, MS 1862 - Letter Signed, to J.C. Febriger. Vicksburg, Miss., aboard the "U.S. Flag Ship Hartford. Below Vicksburg," July 16, 1862. 1 p., 8 x 10 in. With the original transmittal envelope. Unaware of his promotion, Farragut writes as "Flag Officer" to Lieutenant Commander J. C. Febriger of the U.S.S. Kanawha reminding him of ordnance protocols and reports. Farragut writes to the commander of the Kanawha, then on patrol off Mobile, Alabama: "Sir: The Department informs me that no reports of firing have been received from the vessel under your command, since the first day of January last, and requests me to call your attention to Art 14. Page 6 'Ordnance Instructions[.]'"In honor of his capture of New Orleans- a critical victory that gave the Union control over one of the Confederacy's most important seaports- Congress promoted Farragut to Rear Admiral, the first time in U.S. history someone had been appointed to that rank. That same day, still unaware of the honor, Farragut signs the present letter as "Flag Officer" in command of the Western Gulf Blockading Squadron.Following the April 1862 capture of New Orleans, Farragut quickly moved his fleet up the Mississippi to attack the key Confederate stronghold of Vicksburg. In May 1862, he steamed upstream to demand the city's surrender, but lacking enough troops to force the issue, returned to New Orleans. In June Farragut led a larger flotilla that bombarded Vicksburg until the end of July, but he lacked sufficient support from Union land forces. By the time Grant began moving on the city from the north, Confederate forces had heavily reinforced its garrison, making an easy capture impossible. It took another full year, until July 4, 1863, for Vicksburg to fall.At the time of this letter, the U.S.S. Kanawha was stationed off Mobile Bay, an important Confederate port that would not be closed until Farragut commanded a squadron against it in August 1864. This letter suggests that the Kanawha was inactive, but it had, in fact, captured numerous blockade-runners out of Mobile following its arrival off the Alabama coast in February 1862. The Kanawha remained on patrol off Mobile Bay until the spring of 1864 when she was reassigned to the Texas coast. David G. Farragut (1801-1870) joined the navy as a midshipman at the age of nine. He served in the War of 1812, and then in the West Indies working to eradicate piracy. He moved from Virginia to New York at the outset of the Civil War and went on to serve on the blockading fleet in the Gulf of Mexico. He rose to become the first rear admiral, first vice admiral, and first admiral in the U.S. Navy. (To that point, the navy had avoided what it considered a European aristocratic rank for seagoing commanders.). He is best known for his brash heroism in winning the Battle of Mobile Bay and the famous paraphrase, "Damn the torpedoes! Full speed ahead."ConditionFine. Expected folds, extreme light toning along margins.

Chapters include Memoranda for Emigrants: the Voyage Out; the Introduction, wherein it is written "The little knowledge possessed in Europe of the economical and political institutions of this fine country, have determined the publication of the geographical and statistical information contained in these pages"; following is the main chapter, The Republic of Uruguay, Monte Video, Geographical, Social, and Political which details climate, vegetable productions, trees (utility of), minerals, animals (race horses and fine wool etc.), institutions (hospitals, schools), land and water communication, post offices, commerce, summary of professions, details of the various departments, etc. There follows a chapter Life in the River Plate and a Catalogue of the Articles Exhibited in the Uruguay Department, International Exhibition, London 1862, with information on Jury Awards. A concluding piece discusses Land Sales and Profits in the River Plate. The rear cover quotes from the Times of August 29, 1862: "The Monte Videan territory - for it is better known by the name of its capital - is limited, but extremely fertile, well watered, possesses excellent pastures, an abundance of minerals, as yet unexplored. The deficiency of labour is so great that any man who offers is hired as a shepherd, at wages equal to about £40 per annum, besides rations. This rich and healthy territory, which could easily maintain a population of 2,000,000, probably does not contain 200,000." The four maps in the volume are 1) The World (Route from the United Kingdom to the River Plate) 9 x 11¼ inches; outline coloring of South America and the British Isles. 2) Banda Oriental Republic of Uruguay; Route from Monte Video to Mercedes Estancia Maua: 9 x 5 3/4 inches w/ outline hand color. 3) Valley of the River Plate, Monte Video to Mercedes: 5 3/4 x 9 1/2 inches with outline hand color. 4) Estancia Mauà, Mercedes, Monte Video 1862.

        The International Exhibition of 1862. The illustrated catalogue

      London: Printed for Her Majesty&#39;s Commisioners, 1862. Three volumes, quarto, folding plan and steel engraved illustrations throughout; very good set in original gilt decorated cloth. Australian products on the world stage. Official catalogue of the 1862 International Exhibition, a spectacle of vast proportions promoting the products and manufacturing of Britain and her colonies. All Australian colonies were well represented, with their displays listed in the third volume of this set. These lavishly printed volumes include the history of the International Exhibitions from their inception in 1851 onwards, including charming steel-engraved plates of the pavilions and a detailed floor plan showing the location of British and Colonial manufacturers. The range of products and commodities is impressive, from dried beetle wings through to firefighting engines. This publication is of special interest to collectors of antique furniture and wares. Cabinet makers, jewellers, gold and silver-smiths, weavers, upholsterers and all manner of trades were generously represented at the exhibition, effectively forming a descriptive trade directory for Britain and the colonies for this period. The third volume, sub-titled Colonial and Foreign Divisions, describes Australian and New Zealand displays in some detail, revealing an extensive range of raw and manufactured goods, including woods for cabinet making, resins and natural products, decorative stone and an impressive range of gold and geological samples from the Victorian fields (two statuettes of an emu and kangaroo crafted from pure Australian gold are illustrated). Some familiar faces emerge, for example Mr. Ronald Gunn offers aromatic woods from Tasmania, while Mrs. Meredith displays &#39;watercolour paintings of flowers of Tasmanian trees, shrubs and plants, framed in muskwood&#39;. On a more sombre note, other displays included photographs and statuette busts Tasmanian Aborigines, as well as native crafts such as dilly bags, carvings and the like. Also exhibited were animal pelts from the platypus, possum and tiger-cat of Tasmania (thylacine).
