      Berlin, 4. IV. 1862. - 2½ SS. auf Doppelblatt. Gr.-8vo. An einen namentlich nicht genannten Adressaten: "Inliegend wollen Sie den Betrag (15 rt) für den bewußten Schreibtisch auf dem Schloß empfangen. Verzeihen Sie die Verzögerung, mein Wirrwarr dieser Tage war und ist groß. Noch fällt mir ein: möchten Sie mir wohl gefälligst einen ostensiblen Revers von ein paar Zeilen ausstellen, welcher besagt: daß jetzt ich durch Kauf Eigenthümer des Meubles bin; nehmlich für den über kurz oder lang möglichen Fall eines Transportes desselben aus dem Schlosse heraus, da ich durch nachträgliche Messung gefunden, daß die unteren Schubfächer für Studien etc. etwas zu klein sein, mir dasselbe demnach anderswo brauchbarer sein dürfte [.]".

        NORTH AMERICA

      1862 - In Two Volumes. London: Chapman & Hall, 1862. 32 pp Vol I ads dated October 1861. Original blind-stamped rose-maroon cloth. First Edition of Trollope's account of his 1861 trip to the land where his mother and younger siblings had briefly lived (in Cincinnati, 1827-1831). This work is not only a geographical description of North America; Trollope also gets into such questions as "Deficiencies in the Post Office System" (Trollope had been a post office civil servant), "Amount of the Debt - Can the Burden be Borne?" and "Rights of Women" -- topics no less timely now. Given the year, Trollope also discusses the Civil War then raging ("The Causes of the War"). Trollope's wife Rose accompanied him on most of this trip, acting as his amanuensis; it is said that the book's spontaneity declines at the point she left for London -- reflecting how much harder it was for him to write out his thoughts rather than to dictate them freely.~This set is in very good-plus condition (the spines are faded to a light brown, as usual with rose-maroon cloth, but there is very little external wear; also the original Vol I endpapers show some cracking). An uncommon Trollope edition. Sadleir (TROLLOPE) 14. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        THE ORIENTAL ALBUM. TWENTY ILLUSTRATIONS IN OIL COLORS OF THE PEOPLE AND SCENERY OF TURKEY.

      New York. 1862. - Engraved title, printed title, 48pp. Twenty chromolithographs. Folio. Original brown morocco, gilt pictorial cover showing a woman on camelback under a crescent moon beside palm trees, gilt-stamped spine, a.e.g. Head and toe of spine expertly repaired. Slight wear along foredge of first five leaves, text pages uniformly tanned. Minor marginal foxing on plates, all images fine. Overall very good. One of the relatively few American costume books, and certainly the best such created in 19th-century America. This is a notable and unusual instance of the taste for "Turkish" which manifested itself in the furniture of the period, but seldom in books. In terms of American color plate books, this is one of the only large projects from the 1860s, when the Civil War seems to have curtailed production of such lavish enterprises. "The one really big chromolithographic book of this decade.the art is simple, but [Charles] Parson's hand is obvious in the good lithography, and Endicott's printing is well done for its time" - McGrath. ".Endicott achieved a rich variety of color which demonstrated the increased technical ability of American printers in the medium" - STAMPED WITH A NATIONAL CHARACTER. Henry Van Lennep was born in Smyrna, the son of European merchants. Educated, on the advice of American missionaries, in the United States, he returned to Turkey as a missionary in 1840 and spent most of the next twenty years in various parts of the Ottoman Empire. Returning to the United States in 1861, he turned his superb original drawings of Middle Eastern life into THE ORIENTAL ALBUM. The plates, which include two scenes of Jewish life in the Ottoman Empire, are "A Turkish Effendi," "Armenian Lady (at home)," "Turkish and Armenian Ladies (abroad)," "Turkish Scribe," "Turkish Lady of Rank (at home)," "Turkish Cavass (police officer)," "Turkish Lady (unveiled)," "Armenian Piper," "Armenian Ladies (at home)," "Armenian Marriage Procession," "Armenian Bride," "Albanian Guard," "Armenian Peasant Woman," "Bagdad Merchant (travelling)," "Jewish Marriage," "Jewish Merchant," "Gypsy Fortune Telling," "Bandit Chief," "Circassian Warrior," and "Druse Girl." A rare and important color plate book. McGRATH, pp.38, 115, 162. BENNETT, p.108. BLACKMER CATALOGUE 1715. BLACKMER SALE 1500. REESE, STAMPED WITH A NATIONAL CHARACTER 97. DAB XIX, p.200.

Qrs., April 12, 1862. To Gen. S. Williams. 2 pp, 7 3/4 x 10 in., ruled paper, closed tear. General Hamilton requests another battery of artillery. The letter is passed up the chain of command to General Barry, the Chief of Artillery. Transcript"Div. Hd. Qrs. Apr 12 1862General I understand the Fourth Battery for my Division has been designated and is on the Peninsula. I beg it may be ordered to report to me forthwith. I am General Very Respy Your Obt. Srt. C. S. Hamilton Brig Gen Comdg Div.Brig Gen S. Williams AAG Army of the Potomac[docketing on verso, as request is passed up the chain of command, not transcribed][Barry's reply, written on verso:]Respectfully returned. The Battery intended for Hamilton's Div[isio]n. was to have been withdrawn from Richardson's, which latter was to have been supplied with a Battery from the Art[iller]y: Depot in Washington. Circumstances compelled the ordering of the Battery intended for Richardson elsewhere. As soon as another Battery can be prepared, the original design will be carried out. William F. Barry Brig. Genl. Ch[ief]-of-A[rtiller]y"At the beginning of the Civil War, Charles Smith Hamilton was appointed Colonel of the 3rd Wisconsin regiment and promoted to Brigadier-General of volunteers. He served in Virginia during the siege of Yorktown in May, 1862, and in September of that year was promoted to Major-General of volunteers. After the siege of Yorktown, he was transferred to the Army of the Mississippi, commanded a division at Corinth, and won the battle of Iuka. Afterward he commanded the left wing of the Army of the Tennessee and the 16th corps. He resigned his military commission in April of 1863. Hamilton went on to serve as President of the Board of Regents of the University of Wisconsin from 1866 until 1875.Historical BackgroundIn the Peninsula Campaign of April-July 1862, Maj. Gen. George B. McClellan attempts to attack Richmond with his (Union) Army of the Potomac from the southwest (up the peninsula between the James and York rivers in Virginia, rather than marching south from Maryland). Despite swamps and swollen rivers, which make it difficult to move artillery, the Federals are able to advance within a few miles of Richmond, and fight the Confederates to a draw in the Battle of Fair Oaks (also called Seven Pines, May 30-June 1). However, after Fair Oaks, President Jefferson Davis assigns Gen. Robert E. Lee to command the Army of Northern Virginia, which defends Richmond. In a series of engagements called the Seven Days' battles (June 26-July 2), Lee counter-attacks strongly, and convinces McClellan to abandon the campaign.

        Expédition de l'Indo-Chine (1858-1859-1860) - Notes sur le Matériel de Guerre des Chinois et des Cochinchinois

      Paris, Lithographie du Ministère de la Marine, 1862. - 1 volume in folio (30*46 cm), 125 pp., enrichi de 13+45 planches à pleine page légendées, décrites et commentées sur la page opposée. La page de titre est salie et tachée, ainsi que 2 feuillets internes (pp. 62-63). Déchirures restaurées sur les 2 derniers feuillets, sinon très bon état, reliure moderne plein cuir noir. Atlas de toute rareté et document historique sur l'armement chinois et cochinchinois au milieu du XIXe siècle. Ouvragecommissionné par le Ministère de la Marine et réalisé par le Chef d'Escadron de la Marine et des Colonies F. Lacour. La première partie de l'ouvrage est consacrée au matériel de guerre des Chinois (13 planches), Dans son avant-propos, l'auteur précise: " Pendant le séjour que j'ai fait en Chine, au mois de juillet 1858, j'ai pu voir une partie des bouches à feu et des armes trouvée à Canton, pris le 29 décembre 1857, ou dans les forts du Peïho, enlevés le 20 mai 1858 par les Forces anglo-françaises sous les ordres de M.M. les Contre-Amiraux Sir Micael Seymour et Rigault de Genouilly. J'ai pu également voir dans la longue batterie de Voosung, au confluent de la Rivière de Shanghai et de Yang-tse-Kiang un assez grand nombre de canons en fonte. Quelques-uns étaient encore sur leurs affuts et il a été possible de les étudier convenablement. Il n'en était pas de même des bouches à feu en bronze prises au Peïho; beaucoup d'entre elles étaient à fond de cale sur divers bâtiments et je n'avais ni le temps, ni les moyens de les déplacer pour les examiner à loisir. Il était question, à cette époque d'expédier à Hong Kong, pour y être vendus, ces canons qu'on pouvait alors envoyer en France, et je m'empressai de mettre à profit toutes les occasions de prendre quelques notes ou de faire des croquis. J'ai cru qu'il ne serait pas sans intérêt pour les personnes qui s'occupent d'artillerie d'avoir sur le matériel chinois quelques renseignements, fussent-ils aussi incomplets que ceux qu'il m'a été possible de recueillir." La 2e partie de l'ouvrage s'intéresse au matériel de guerre cochinchinois lors de la prise des Forts de Touranne et du début de la conquête coloniale indochinoise (45 planches et plans)

        1862 - 1865 HANDWRITTEN MANUSCRIPT PRE-CONFEDERATION CANADA WEST 'LETTERS BOOK' DETAILING ONE CANADIAN'S DESIRE TO FIND HIS TRUE LOVE AND FIND ADVENTURE AS A VOLUNTEER IN THE AMERICAN CIVIL WAR: BUCHANAN'S 13th BATTALION

      HAMILTON PORT STANLEY AMHERSTBURG CANADA WEST 1862 - On offer is a remarkable 1862 - 1865 original handwritten manuscript 'letters book' wherein the author, Mr. John Rowe, residing in Hamilton Ontario for the most part, has kept a meticulous record of his correspondence to friends, family, business associates and intimates. Local collectors and historians of Canadiana relating to Canada West [Ontario], Hamilton, the Niagara area and the author's hometown of Port Stanley and Canada's attitudes and involvement in the American Civil War will delight in the treasure trove of historic content in his writings and revel in the different threads of correspondence. Mr. Rowe writes of romance, commerce and war. He works for the noted Isaac Buchanan of Buchanan, Harris and Co. who one on-line source notes: 'In 1863 Buchanan established the 13th Battalion of the militia (now the Royal Hamilton Light Infantry). He gave the regiment its first colors, and also coined its motto "Semper Paratus". When the 13th Battalion fought in the Battle of Ridgeway in 1866, the wounded were treated at Buchanan's estate 'Auchmar'. Almost eighty years later injured men from the RCAF would also convalesce there.' Rowe, in what might seem rather telling, kept copies of his love letters too; he writes to women in a courting manner but when rebuffed he can be bitter in his comments to an intimate regarding the woman and her other partners and friends. His letters professing love to 'Lizzie' from Toronto are classic. Then there is the American Civil war and his keen interests in militaria; firearms, drilling and action. John corresponds with a very diverse group: Capt John Brown, No. 4 Co. 13 Batt'n V Md; his mother, his sister [in Stoke Devonport England]; Grace Rosevear of Guelph, Schell of Campbellton and his cousin Sergeant G. Ford 2nd Battal Sco Fusilier Guards Montreal to name just a few. Mr. Rowe is a great writer and provides much detail with much personality and covers many areas with most of his correspondence making this an almost diary like collection. Here are some of the details of his participation regarding the Civil War: to his cousin Sergeant Ford Jan 14, 1863: "We have formed several companies of volunteers in Hamilton. We are gazetted a "Light Infantry" and formed into a battalion of which Mr. Buchanan (my governor) has been appointed Lieut. Colonel. I have joined one of the camps. We were first drilled by a Guardsman Sergt major Henry. he was a splendid drill and we all liked him very much, but he has been removed and we have now a Colon. Serg't of the Rifle Brigade." Later he writes: Dear Schell (February 7, 1863) . Pete Buchanan is ensign. Stuart enjoys the rank of Corporal. he just returned from New York where he went to see his brother who was wounded before Fredericksburg where I believe Stuart has the great honor of drinking with the Governor of Nebraska and some U.S. Generals. Since his return he is full of his exploits - dining with General Char-them-up. There is a spring meeting tonight at Mrs. Thom Clark's." As to the book condition proper someone, probably a young girl or woman used pages 1 to 40 as a scrapbook glueing newspaper clippings of poems and verse to both sides of the handwritten pages. Pages 40 to 282 are all handwritten and all the letters are dated, addressed and signed. This extraordinary, unique book of 240+ pages provides a super rendering of life in Southern Ontario at this pre-Confederation time. Condition overall is Good and would be better save for some faults to the cover the worst being chipping and some loss to the spine. Interior is good though Rowe cut some leaves out and there are some tears, chips etc to the fragile onion skin type papers. This is truly a one of a kind archive of first hand history given Mr. Rowe's almost compulsive retention of his writings - lucky for us! 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        SAN FRANCISCO, 1862. FROM RUSSIAN HILL.

      San Francisco: Printed by L. Nagel, published by A. Rosenfield, . 1862 - Tinted lithograph, in five sections, 15 x 108 inches, printed on heavier paper. Expertly conserved and mounted on tissue. Staining and some paper loss, almost entirely confined to the lower margin (caption portion) of the center portion and right half of the entire image. The image itself is quite bright with nice variations in tone. In good condition overall. This extraordinary lithograph - actually five sheets joined together - is the first panorama of San Francisco, one of the most striking early views of that city, and the most ambitious city view undertaken in the American West up to that time. Not until Edward Muybridge's photographic panorama of San Francisco several decades later was the city shown so completely in a single view. "One of the rarest and most important of items relating to San Francisco" - Eberstadt. Gifford's view, taken from Russian Hill, was executed in five separate sections, each with full title information, and a text of numbered locations runs across the bottom of the entire panorama, with one hundred places identified. The Presidio can be seen in section one, Alcatraz in section two, and the first heavily built-up streets in section three. Section four includes the most densely settled area, along Market and Mission, stretching into section five, which goes to Mission Dolores and beyond. Details of buildings, streets, and other features are rendered with great exactness and a stunning wealth of detail. Churches, synagogues, the Masonic temple, wharves, and streets are all identified. ".[I]t took an ambitious project like Charles Gifford's multisectioned panorama to record completely the city's tremendous growth" - Deak. The artist, Charles Gifford, came to California in 1860, and was active until 1877. According to Reps, "Gifford's finest and most ambitious view was a sweeping panorama from Russian Hill." The view was lithographed by Louis Nagel, who had been well-known as a lithographer in New York before coming to San Francisco in 1856. Reps notes that the publisher, Rosenfield, made the panorama available in three versions in 1862: one printed on thin paper and mounted on cloth; another as here, printed on single sheets on heavier paper; and a third mounted on cloth and fastened to wooden rollers. Deak and Reps locate six copies of this panorama (MWA, DLC, CU-B, CSmH, Wells Fargo, California State Pioneers). Peters calls it "important and rare." It is an incredible production, both as a landmark in western lithography, and as a view of a major American city in the midst of a period of tremendous growth. DEÁK, PICTURING AMERICA, 776.

        On the Extent and Aims of a National Museum of Natural History. Inscribed to the Marquis of Ripon.

      Saunders, Otley, London 1862 - Owen, Richard (1804-92). On the extent and aims of a national museum of natural history. 8vo. [4], 126pp. 2 folding plates. London: Saunders, Otley & Co., 1862. 222 x 142 mm. Original plum cloth, a little worn, inner hinges cracking. Light toning, but very good. Presentation copy, inscribed by Owen on the verso of the front free endpaper: "The Marquis of Ripon, K.G. with the Author's respects."First Edition. Owen was the prime mover behind the construction of the Natural History Museum, a project that occupied him for over two decades. After his appointment as superintendent of the Natural History department of the British Museum in 1856, dissatisfied with the cramped and disorganized confines of the existing British Museum (located in Bloomsbury), Owen began lobbying for a "separate but unified national museum of natural history . . . to represent the three kingdoms of nature" (Rupke, p. 34), to be housed in a building spacious enough to display even the largest specimens of both living and fossil species. The project did not really get off the ground until October 1861, when Owen"manipulated future Prime Minster Gladstone into the opinion that the current exhibition facilities for the Natural History Department of the British Museum were inadequate for their task. Owen cultivated Gladstone's support in order to bring the issue before Parliament once the Trustees of the British Museum fell into agreement with his extravagant plans for building not just more display space, but an entirely new building to house the natural history collection (Johnson-Roehr, "The Natural History Museum-London" [internet reference]).After much heated debate, Owen's plan was approved and the South Kensington museum, designed by Albert Waterhouse, began construction in 1873. The building was completed by late 1879, and the museum opened its doors to the public in 1881. The social and cultural impact of Owen's Natural History Museum cannot be overestimated: Bill Bryson, in his Short History of Nearly Everything (2003), has stated that "by making the Natural History Museum an institution for everyone, Owen transformed our expectations of what museums are for" (p. 81).Owen's On the Extent and Aims of a National Museum of Natural History, containing the text of his lecture delivered before the Royal Institution in April 1861, was part of his long campaign to obtain political backing for the South Kensington Museum. Owen presented this copy of the work to the George Frederick Samuel Robinson, first Marquess of Ripon, a prominent Liberal politician who held several influential posts during Gladstone's two terms as Prime Minister. The presentation was made in 1869 or afterwards, since Robinson was not made Knight of the Garter (K.G.) until that year. Wikipedia for Robinson. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Diplomatisches Korrespondenzarchiv 1861.

      Paris, Rom, Neapel, Florenz, Wien, München u. v. a. O., September 1860 bis Januar 1862 sowie vereinzelte Schreiben aus den Jahren 1854-1858. - Zus. 257 Briefe und Korrespondenzstücke in zumeist französischer, aber auch italienischer und deutscher Sprache. Auf Nadeln geheftet in zeitgenöss. halblederner "Biblorhapte"-Korrespondenzmappe (von L. Girard) mit goldgepr. Rückenschildchen "Correspondance", Marmorvorsätzen und Heftvorrichtung aus Messing. Gr.-8vo. Der Diplomat und Staatsmann Eugene d' Halwin Marquis de Piennes, aus einer alten picardischen Familie, die seit dem 16. Jahrhundert am Ärmelkanal ansässig war, diente seit den 1850er Jahren als Botschaftssekretär in Lissabon, Petersburg und Rom, wo er sich mit dem Bildhauer Jean-Baptiste Carpeaux anfreundete, dessen Förderer er wurde. Nach seiner Rückkehr nach Frankreich im Jahre 1862 wurde er Generalrat seines Heimatdépartements Manche, als welcher er bis 1870 wirkte, und Bürgermeister seiner Heimatstadt Périers. Als Kammerherr der Kaiserin Eugénie (1863) führte er Carpeaux in den Hof ein; auch erwirkte er die Freigabe der Mittel zur Restaurierung des Mont-St-Michel und setzte sich für die Förderung der Region Périers ein.

        Autograph letter signed "I. Moscheles" to the pianist and composer Louis Brassin

      2 pp. of a bifolium. With integral address panel. Dated Leipzig, January 18, 1862. In German (with translation). Moscheles thanks Brassin for sending two volumes of his concert etudes. "No doubt, there will be much for me to praise, and with that conviction in mind, I am very happy to accept the dedication of the 3rd volume." He goes on to make suggestions in a postscript regarding how Brassin indicates tempi, and lists the 15 accidentals that he noticed missing when playing through the first etude. Slightly worn; uniform light browning; creased at folds; edges slightly browned. . A Bohemian pianist and composer of Jewish descent, Moscheles was one of Vienna's most popular pianists, "hailed as an equal and friend by Clementi and J.B. Cramer." He met the 15-year-old Mendelssohn in 1824 in Berlin and "gave him some finishing lessons on the piano." He went on to became principal professor of piano at the Leipzig Conservatory in 1846, recently founded by Mendelssohn. Known also as a conductor, Moscheles led the first London performance of Beethoven's Missa solemnis in 1832 and very successful performances of the Ninth Symphony in 1837 and 1838. "Hanslick assessed Moscheles as one of the last great representatives of the Classical school and also the beginner of a new epoch.""The majority of Moscheles’s compositional output is piano music; some, including the sonatas, is of lasting consequence... Schumann considered Moscheles one of the best sonata composers of his generation... His piano method is best represented in his sets of studies, which are still used: Schumann saw these as bridging the gap between the age of Clementi and that of Chopin and being indebted to Bach’s Clavier-Ãœbung." Jerome Roche and Henry Roche in Grove onlineLouis Brassin (1840-1884), the addressee, was a member of a well-known family of Belgian musicians that included his brothers, pianist Leopold Brassin and violinist Gerhard Brassin.

        Autograph letter signed to Charles Tilston Bright.

      London 1862 - Airy, George Biddell (1801-92). A.L.s. to Charles Tilston Bright. London, August 15, 1862. 4pp. 188 x 119 mm. Provenance: Latimer Clark.Airy served as Great Britain's astronomer royal from 1835 to 1881, and was a noted critic and frequent adversary of Charles Babbage. In 1862 he undertook the task of determining the difference in longitude between Greenwich and Valentia, Ireland, the European landing point for the first Atlantic cable, which had failed four years earlier. The observations were made with the aid of time signals transmitted from Greenwich to Valentia by telegraph, using some of the cable laid for the failed 1858 venture, and Airy's letter to Bright, a founding member of Cyrus Field's Atlantic Telegraph Company, expresses his gratitude for the opportunity:"We have at length finished the practical part of our operations for the Valentia longitude, and I trust successfully. . . . For the opportunity of doing it at all, we are entirely indebted to your kindness-in the retention of the Valentia wires, when there was hardly any reason for the retention except the prospect of our work, and in the favourable introduction to your brother [Edward Bright] and to the B. & I. M. T. [British and Irish Magnetic Telegraph] Company. . . . The signals were transmitted without difficulty and in an excellently observable state when the weather was reasonably good. In some of the heavy Irish showers, they were rather weak, but never too faint for observation."The operation was naturally protracted by the impossibility of securing in every case transits at Greenwich, transits at Valentia, and galvanic signals. But the principal cause of delay was the irregularity of some clerk, name and station unknown . . . who did not always follow out your brother's regularity in establishing connexions. We imagine him to be an Irishman and entitled to use the national privilege of irregularity, and accordingly we forgive him heartily, and thank him for the connexions which he did make. . . ."Airy had been consulted about the feasibility of submarine telegraphy prior to the laying of the first Atlantic cable, his opinion at the time being that it was "a mathematical impossibility to submerge a cable at so great a depth" (quoted in Carter 1968, 125).

        Atlas Ichthyologique des Indes Orientales Néêrlandaises. Publié sous les auspices du Gouvernement Colonial Néêrlandais.

      - Amsterdam, F. Muller, 1862-1865. Volumes 1-5 (of 9) volumes. Folio (450 x 295 mm). With 240 plates of which 238 superbly chromo-lithographed. Later half cloth library bindings, the last volume loose in original printed wrappers. There is no title to volume 5 and the text runs from page 1-96 (of 152), the plates 232-240 belong to volume 6, library stamp on titles. A complete copy has 9 vols and 420 plates and was published from 1862 to 1878. A magnificent ichthyological atlas, the most splendid work on fishes of the nineteenth century. It is the only major work on the fishes of the Indo-Pacific ocean. In 1845 Bleeker started his project, however the first printing was realised 18 years later. Due to his death the work remained unfinished. During his life Bleeker sent more than 12.000 fishes from the East Indian Archipelago to Holland. The edition of the present work must have been very small as Bleeker in his biography mentions only 60 subscribers. The plates are splendidly executed after drawings by L. Speigler and chromolithographed by C.W. Mieling and later by Emrik & Binger. According to Junk, Rara p. 140 'les planches chromo-lithographiées sont d'une exécution magnifique et sont en effet les meilleures que la litérature moderne d'Ichthyologie a produit. Bleeker est l'auteur le plus fertile de sa science'.The volumes are composed as follows: I. Scaroïdes et Labroïdes; II. Siluroïdes, Chacoïdes et Hétérobranchoïdes; III. Cyprins; IV.

        Prelude to Disaster: Lovell Weakens New Orleans in a Futile Attempt to Shore Up Fort Donelson

      New Orleans, LA 1862 - Autograph Letter Signed, to Albert Sidney Johnston. New Orleans, La., February 7, 1862. 1 p., 8 x 11 in. In February 1862, General Mansfield Lovell sends reinforcements to Albert Sidney Johnston, the chief Confederate commander in the West, so he can defend Nashville and Fort Donelson. The move was fruitless; Fort Donelson fell to Union troops a week after this letter was written. With: a carte-de-visite of Lovell in Confederate uniform. New York & Washington: Brady's National Photographic Portrait Gallery, [ca. 1862].Partial Transcript "Capt. Gibson's battery (21 rifled 6 pdrs. and two 12 pdr. Howitzers) has been detained for want of transportation, but will leave tomorrow morning for Nashville. Capt. Bains has received his battery, and with the exception of a portion of his harness, is ready to proceed to join your command; but as his company is totally uninstructed, I have thought it best to retain them at their encampment in the Jackson Rail Road to drill and be reduced to something like discipline. If however, you desire to have the guns and men, I would prefer to have the men instructed at Nashville. I shall order them there upon the receipt of a telegram to that effect from you."Historical BackgroundA day before Lovell wrote this letter, Ulysses S. Grant had forced the surrender of Fort Henry, Tennessee. The loss prompted Confederate Western Department commander General Albert Sidney Johnston to abandon his position at Bowling Green, Kentucky and fall back towards Nashville. A week later, on February 16, Fort Donelson, Tennessee, fell. The Cumberland and Tennessee Rivers had been opened, and all of western Tennessee, northern Mississippi, and northern Alabama were exposed to Union invasion. Johnston adopted the strategic thinking of P.G.T. Beauregard, his new second-in-command, and concentrated most of the men in the western theater on a climactic battle against Ulysses S. Grant. In the resulting Battle of Shiloh, (April 6-7, 1862) Johnson himself was killed. He was the highest-ranking officer to die in battle on either side in the Civil War.In the aftermath of the Battle of Shiloh, New Orleans lay exposed to Union attack from the north, while to the south, Admiral David G. Farragut's Mississippi River fleet broke the Confederate defenses on the Mississippi River at Forts Jackson and St. Philip. The two forts protected New Orleans, but Farragut bypassed them in the dark, early morning hours of April 24. He then prevailed over Confederate Captain John Stevenson's overmatched fleet. Lovell began to evacuate New Orleans over the next few days, well before Union General Benjamin Butler's army was in a position to threaten its works. Lovell's evacuation order probably cost him his career; he was investigated by a court of inquiry and never again commanded troops in the field. Butler occupied the Crescent City on May 1.Mansfield Lovell (1822-1884) was a West Point graduate from Washington, D.C., who was seriously wounded at Belen Gate in the Mexican War. In October 1861, he was appointed major general in the Confederate Army and assigned to command in New Orleans. Under Lovell, the Confederates lost New Orleans, but he was hampered by deficiencies in men and materiel and was subsequently cleared of responsibility. However, he never again obtained high command.Albert S. Johnston (1803-1862) of Kentucky graduated from West Point, where he befriended Jefferson Davis, in 1828. He went to Texas, where he served as aide-de-camp to Sam Houston's revolutionary army, and rose to command Texas forces briefly in 1837. He also served as Secretary of War for the short-lived Republic of Texas. Johnston fought under Zachary Taylor in the Mexican War, was colonel of the 2nd U.S. Cavalry on the Texas frontier, led troops in the Utah wars, and commanded the Department of the Pacific before the Civil War. In 1861, he was appointed full general (second after Samuel Cooper) with command of all Confederate for. (See website for full description)

Contemporary red half calf, gilt ornamented spines (ends of spine a bit chipped, one hinge splitting) . Nissen BBI, 456; not listed by Dunthorne and Pritzel. Extremely rare iconographie on fruit with superb large plates, of which the first 6 volumes depict pears, volume VII peaches, volume VIII peaches (remaining part), prunes and apricots, and the last volume strawberries and currants. The colour-printed engraved illustrations are signed: A. Riocreux del. & Mlle. E. Taillant sc., and the chromolithographed ones: A. Riocreux del., G. Severyns, chromolit. Brux. & Mlle. E. Taillant sc. "The most sensitive and skilful French botanical artist of the period was Alfred Riocreux (1820-1912), who may be considered the Paris counterpart of Walter Hood Fitch . Trained by his father, the boy progressed so rapidly with drawing and painting that the sketches which he made at the age of thirteen were considered worth preserving at Sèvres. The botanist Adolphe Théodore Brongniart (1801-76), whose father had also been employed at Sèvres, directed the attention of the young Riocreux to botany and was probably also responsible for bringing him to the Muséum d'Histoire Naturelle. Here the young artist met Joseph Decaisne (1807-82), for whose superb 'Le Jardin Fruitier du Muséum' . he made the drawings ." (Blunt, pp. 229-230). G. Severyns, being responsible for the excellent chromolithographs in the above work, was the most gifted and most prominent lithographer of Belgium in the 19th century, who started his firm already in 1829 and remained the leading printing-establishment for nearly a whole century. Apart from light foxing to some of the plates a fine complete set. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
