        Seven Days' Battles

      1862. First Edition . [POLLARD, Edward A.]. The Seven Days' Battles in front of Richmond. An outline narrative of the series of engagements whichÂ… resulted in the defeat and retreat of the northern army under Major-General M'Clellan. Richmond: West & Johnston, 1862. Slim octavo, original blue paper wrappers, original stitching as issued; pp. 45. $2800.First edition of famed Confederate journalist's anonymously published account of the 1862 Seven Days' Battles where Robert E. Lee became ""the southern hero"" and McClellan's leadership in a Union defeat so strongly affected Lincoln that he soon told ""his cabinet that he intended to issue a proclamation of emancipation.""When Jefferson Davis ordered Robert E. Lee to take command of Confederate forces, ""the tide of war appeared to be flowing heavily against the Confederacy"" (Konstam, Seven Days Battles, 7). Yet in the Seven Days' Battles, ""one of the more savage and remarkable campaigns of the Civil WarÂ… the Army of Northern Virginia would deliver blow after blow"" to McClellan and the Army of the Potomac (Civil War Trust). ""Inexorably and untiringly Lee pushed McClellan's larger army until he had lifted the threat from RichmondÂ… [and] become a southern hero, in fact the southern hero,"" while McClellan became Lincoln's greatest obstacle (Korda, 349, 395, emphasis in original). Within weeks Lincoln appointed Halleck general-in-chief, a move that ""'signaled a repudiation of McClellan'Â… Later in July, deeply affected by the outcome of the Seven Days, Lincoln would inform his cabinet that he intended to issue a proclamation of emancipationÂ… Had McClellan been the victor in July 1862Â… the consequences for millions of enslaved African Americans might have been momentous"" (Gallagher, Richmond Campaign, 17).This anonymously published account by Richmond journalist Pollard was issued despite Lee's emphasis on censorship ""to prevent the press from giving publicity to the strength and position of his army."" Seven Days' Battles appeared in print ""almost before the sulfurous gun smoke dissipated over the scenes of fightingÂ… Although Pollard grumbled in a preface about Lee's security-driven inhospitable attitude toward newspapermenÂ… plenty of first-hand evidence appears in these pages, all of it obviously of distinctly contemporary immediacy."" Pollard, ""the ablest and most prolific Southern writer of his day'"" (Andrews, South Reports), wrote ""the first pages of a Confederate national history, a shared narrative of heroism and sacrifice to bind the southern people together"" (Bernath, Confederate Minds, 188). Howes P-461""aa"": indicating ""books that are quite scarce, obtainable only with some difficulty."" Parrish & Willingham 5001. Dornbusch III:1491. Crandall 2654.

        Reise der öesterreichischen Fregatte Novara um die Erde, in den Jahren 1857,1858, 1859...

      Vienna: 1861-, 1862. Three volumes, quarto, numerous folding maps and illustrations, folding map in rear endpaper sleeve of the first volume. Scarce record of the only major Austrian exploring expedition and circumnavigation. Under the command of Captain Bernard von Wüllerstorf-Urbair, the Novara travelled extensively throughout Oceania throughout 1857-1859 and visited both Australia and New Zealand. These three volumes form part of the official publication of the scientific results of the voyage. The author, Dr. Karl von Scherzer, was an anthropologist and linguist, and accordingly here contributes the ethnological description of the scientific results.At the encouragement of the former governor of New Zealand, with whom Captain Wüllerstorf-Urbair conversed while resting in Cape Town, the expedition visited Auckland where the Austrian geologists conducted skilful surveys in the volcanic regions of the North Island. Two Maori men, Wiremu Toeto and Hemera Rerehau, boarded the Novara and eventually returned to Austria. Here they joined the lavish welcoming parade, were feted by Viennese society, and eventually trained in the art of printing and lithography before returning to New Zealand. Before leaving Vienna, they were presented with a printing press, including fonts and associated tools, by the Emperor Franz Joseph. Interestingly, Dr. Scherzer himself trained as a typographer before commencing university studies, and may well have played a part in the training of Wiremu Toeto and Hemera Rerehau.The scientific results were published in 22 volumes over some 16 years. These three volumes by Dr. Scherzer form the first three volumes of the complete set, noted by Howgego for its scarcity. An abridged version was published shortly afterwards, and other contemporary editions included English and Italian translations. A few points of wear affect the joints but a fine bright set overall.

        notice for identifying their logs coming down the Susquehanna River.

      1862 - Du Bois & Lowe issue a broadside notice for identifying their logs coming down the Susquehanna River. 17" X 14" Printed at Havre de Grace, Md, March 1st. 1862 The neat part of this broadside is the branding codes of the various lumber sellers. Although most of the lumber came from the West Branch of the Susquehanna River, John DuBois was raised in Tioga County New York and still had connections here in the Owego area. Tioga County, NY was and still is a major supplier of logs to the world. This broadside hung in the law office of former Judge George Boldman of Owego. For more information about the issues of the day - United States Supreme Court 73ÂU.S.Â548 TOME Âv. DUBOIS. In the Circuit Court for the District of Maryland; the case, as stated in the brief of counsel, and assumed by this court, being in substance thus: Dubois & Lowe brought trover against Tome, Shure & Abbott to recover damages for the conversion by them of certain saw-logs, and certain planks, which Dubois & Lowe alleged to be their property. At the trial of the cause, evidence was offered on the part of the plaintiffs, that on September 30th, 1861, several booms on the Susquehanna River were carried away by a freshet, and that a large quantity of logs for lumber were swept down the river; that telegrams were at once sent to the postmasters at Port Deposit and Havre de Grace, towns on the lower part of the river, requesting them to have the logs caught and saved for the owners, and that under such notices, the defendants caught and saved a quantity of the logs, and at once began to saw them into lumber. Evidence was also offered, that a few days after the freshet, the owners of the logs appointed a committee of three persons to go down the river, and settle with the persons who had saved any portion of the logs, and with full authority to sell the same; that on the 7th or 8th October, 1861, the committee went to the sawmill of the defendants, about seven miles from Havre de Grace, and saw some of the logs there; that the committee offered to sell to the defendants all the logs between Safe Harbor Dam and Havre de Grace, which included the logs then in the possession of defendants, but the parties could not agree at to the terms of sale; that the defendants were then engaged in sawing the logs, and had prior to that time sawed some of them, and that the committee prohibited all further sawing thereof; that they estimated the lumber which had been sawed at from 40,000 to 200,000 feet; that they made several visits to the mill of the defendants, and on their last visit, which was in December, 1861, and was for the purpose of ascertaining and measuring the whole amount, there were, in their judgment and by their measurement, 400,000 feet of sawed lumber, and 100,000 feet in logs. History of Lycoming County, Pennsylvania by John Franklin Meginness on page 1099. John DuBois was one of the pioneer lumbermen of Lycoming county, and during the early development of that great industry he laid the foundation of a large fortune. He was a native of Tioga County, New York, and in 1838 came to this county and located on Lycoming creek, between Field's Station and Bodines. He and his brother Matthias purchased large tracts of pine and hemlock timber lands in Lewis and Cascade townships, erected a mill and was engaged in the manufacture of lumber under the firm name of J. Du Bois & Brother. About 1850 they took into partnership E. S. Lowe, then a prominent merchant of Williamsport, and the firm was changed to DuBois & Lowe. In the meantime Mr. Du Bois had become interested in building a boom in the Susquehanna river at Williamsport, and when the Susquehanna Boom Company was organized, he was elected its first president . He also made large purchases of timer lands in Clearfield county. DuBois & Lowe bought several hundred acres of land on the river, including the site of DeBoistown, where they build a large saw mill with an annal capacity of 6,000,000 to 8,000,000 feet of lum

""It struck us that a list of all the social drinks of America would really be one of the curiosities of jovial literature; and that if it was combined with a catalogue of the mixtures common to other nations [463 additional recipes, provided by Christian Schultz], and made practically useful by the addition of the concise description of the various processes for 'brewing' each, it would be a 'blessing to mankind.'"" Before The Bar-Tender's Guide, knowledge of cocktails and their recipes was largely a matter of oral tradition in the United States; its author is today regarded as ""the father of American mixology."" First edition, third state, with the price $2.50 on the front cover; the publishers printed and sold approximately 8000 first edition copies, first priced at $1.50, then $2.00, then $2.50.

The London JewsÂ’ Society became particularly interested in the fate of EthiopiaÂ’s Jews, and requested that Stern travel there. In 1863, he became a captive in Ethiopia, where he “was subjected to especially cruel tortures and indignities, for he was charged by the king with having reflected, in his book entitled ‘Wanderings among the Falashas,Â’ on the kingÂ’s ferocity, and with having stated that his mother was a vendor of Kosso” (DNB), a common medicinal plant.

C. Lincoln, Co. G. 39th Mass Vols"" on front cover. Together with two autograph letters signed ""Benj C. Lincoln"" and ""Benny,"" 11 pages total, various sizes, Edwards Ferry Maryland and Camp Casey, Va., October 3 and November 2, 1862; an autograph letter (unsigned), two pages, Key West, July 29, 1864; as well as four letters and documents addressed to Lincoln, August 15, 1864-February 27, 1865. $8000.Interesting 1862 Civil War diary and related papers of Union officer and abolitionist Benjamin C. Lincoln, who would become an officer in the 2nd United States Colored Troops, in which he describes the captured home of Robert E. Lee and Jeb Stuart's Chambersburg Raid.A superb collection related to the career of Benjamin C. Lincoln (1840-65) who enlisted in the 39th Massachusetts on August 9, 1862, and served that body as a clerk until May, 1863, when he was detached to Washington to work on the staff of General John Henry Martindale. A fervent abolitionist, Lincoln accepted a commission in the 2nd Regiment of the United States Colored Troops in the summer of 1863 serving first near New Orleans and later in Key West, Florida. Lincoln died of wounds received at the Battle of Natural Bridge in March, 1865.Of particular interest is Lincoln's diary that he began the day he enlisted in the 39th Massachusetts through December, 1862. Lincoln describes his journey from Boston to Washington, first aboard a steamer that landed at Jersey City and then by rail to the capital. South of Philadelphia, Lincoln observed that the road was guarded by ""picketsÂ… stationed all the way to WashintonÂ… after we passed Baltimore the guards were much nearer together and there were a larger number at Philadelphia and all along the route to BaltimoreÂ…"" The regiment received enthusiastic welcomes from well-wishers save for Baltimore where ""the welcome was cold, and there were rumors that several soldiers had been poisoned the night before in other regiments. And soon after it was stated that some of our own men went dead from the same causeÂ…""While in Washington, Lincoln managed some time to take in the sights. Walking around Arlington he ""saw Arlington house, the residence formerly of the rebel General Lee, situated near a large oak forest, with small houses around it for negroes and commanding a fine prospect of Washington & the Potomac. The house is now used by Gen Heintzleman as his head-quarters."" Later in October, Lincoln's regiment was stationed approximately 20 miles up the Potomac from Washington, when they were ordered to march on an alarm after Stuart's Cavalry crossed the river into Maryland (known today as the Chambersburg Raid): ""the rebels had crossed the river by Point of Rocks [Maryland] and were on the Maryland side, having about 2,000 cavalry, some artillery & infantry, a body also crossed below at Seneca. Our regiment was immediately formed and marched up the riverÂ… but as the firing had ceased soon returnedÂ… I afterwards ascertained were 3,000 in number under command of Stuart."" Stuart's mission, to secure fresh horses, arms, and other supplies, also netted about 30 civilian officials to be used for exchange of captured Confederates. Stuart also managed to destroy an important rail crossing near Chambersburg, Pennsylvania. Some light wear to spine of diary, rear pastedown lifted, Lincoln's entries clean, clearly legible and fine. Expected mailing folds and light toning to remaining items; overall, excellent condition.

His History extends from the mythical beginnings of Greek culture and legend to the reign of Alexander the Great. ""The work of a master… The political lessons and ethical judgments so characteristic of the [History] render it the most instructive of histories"" (DNB). Grote ""incontestably won for himself the title not merely of a historian, but of the historian of Greece"" (Allibone I:747). Grote's History ""is notable for its accurate geographical details, for the spirit and vigor of its passages descriptive of martial exploits, and, above all, for its obvious purpose of showing the elevating and inspiring influence of freedom upon human activity… Each chapter is, in a way, a monograph in itself, and the work as a whole is one of the greatest masterpieces of historical research that have ever been put forth"" (Peck, 753).

        Autograph letter signed.

      1862. Signed. (DARWIN, Charles) DARWIN, Emma. Autograph letter signed. Bromley, Kent, June 28, [1862]. Single sheet of letterhead, measuring 4 by 6 inches folded in half; pp. 4. $4500.Original signed autograph letter from Charles Darwin’s wife Emma Darwin to painter and essayist Thomas Gold Appleton relating Charles Darwin’s gratitude for the natural history book Appleton sent him, mentioning Darwin’s continuing illness, remarking on the Civil War and slavery, and imploring Appleton to visit if he planned to come to England as Darwin was eager to see him again.The letter, written entirely in Emma Darwin’s hand on the stationery of Darwin’s residence at Down House, reads: “June 28. My dear Mr Appleton, It was very pleasant to find ourselves so kindly remembered by you at such a distance of time & Mr. Darwin begs me to thank you most cordially for the beautiful book… He begs me to say that the book is one of the most beautiful specimens of work of Nat. History he has ever seen. I wish we could have had the pleasure of seeing your brother here but Mr Darwin has been too unwell to see any visitors. We shall rejoice at the termination of the war & if we cannot hope to see slavery abolished I think it must at all events be prevented from spreading. If you shd be coming to England I hope you will let us know as we should be so glad to see you again. Mr Darwin… has the pleasantest recollection of the days you spent here. Very truly yours. E. Darwin.” This autograph letter is accompanied by the first mainstream publication of Emma Darwin’s collected letters, edited by her daughter, Henrietta Litchfield. “Although a biography of Emma, this contains a large number of letters from Charles and is an important source of information about his day to day and family life” (Freeman 1553). With 19 illustrated plates. Accompanied by the first published edition of Emma Darwin’s collected letters, edited by her daughter. (New York: Appleton, 1915). This edition was preceded by a 1904 privately printed edition of only 250 copies that were distributed only to family and friends. This edition contains substantial textual alterations. The recipient of the letter, Thomas Gold Appleton, was distantly related to both Charles and Emma Darwin by marriage (the Darwins themselves were first cousins). Appleton and his wife were close friends of the Darwins and they corresponded frequently and at length. A Boston native, Thomas Appleton was incredibly popular, particularly among prominent members of the Unitarian community such as Charles Darwin, Oliver Wendell Holmes, and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (his brother-in-law), both for his remarkable kindness and for his wit, which was so acute that Oscar Wilde quoted him in A Woman of No Importance. Though remembered best for his sociability, Appleton was also a talented painter and essayist who frequently focused on social matters such as abolition, as eluded to in this letter. Like Appleton, Darwin was a devoted abolitionist who once criticized The Times for failing to show even “a shade of feeling against slavery.” Darwin and his wife both expressed their understanding, if not unqualified support, of the Northern cause, even at a time when much of England sided with the South. Darwin was deeply disturbed by the political climate on both sides of the Atlantic and his correspondence from the time clearly showed his frustration and dismay over slavery and the costs of war. Although 1862 was once of Darwin’s most scientifically productive years, he spent much of the early summer afflicted by a case of eczema and a fever-type illness that prevented him from attending several important meetings and from visiting with friends such as Appleton’s brother. Nevertheless, by the end of the year, Darwin had performed a large number of complex botanical experiments and had succeeded in publishing two botanical papers and a book on the pollination mechanisms of orchids, all while remaining deeply involved with the British scientific community and developments in the field of evolution. Also included with this autograph letter is a typed letter from a researcher at the Darwin Correspondence Project at Cambridge requesting permission from the former owner, prominent gerontologist James G. Zimmer, to include this letter in Volume X of The Correspondence of Charles Darwin. Book contains owner signatures of E.C. Case, possibly the prominent American paleontologist.Autograph letter in exceptional condition, with only original mailing creases, two very faint areas of discoloration, and a single bit of paper residue not affecting text. Books most attractive, with only minor scattered foxing, a bit of toning to spines, and slight soiling to original cloth. A most desirable and interesting letter with a wonderful association, accompanied by Henrietta Litchfield’s classic biography of her mother, Emma Darwin.

      First edition. Thirty mounted albumen photographs, all measuring 20.5 cm x 13 cm ( 8" x 5"). Many photographs marked either from the negative, or with a photographer's blind stamp on verso that reads, "A. A. Forbes Photo, Wildomar, Calif." Marking suggests that Forbes stamped these images during his California days, which began after eight years photographing and developing cowboy images from a covered wagon. Forbes was trained by and involved with W. S. Prettyman, George Cornish, and Thomas Croft, all notable photographers who happened to operate in Arkansas City, Kansas during the opening of the Cherokee Strip. Forbes has been referred to as "The Ansel Adams of Cowboy Photography." Andrew Alexander Forbes (1862-1921) was born in Ottawa Township, Wisconsin, and became interested in photography around the late 1870s or early 1880s while working on his family's cattle ranch. Among his photographic achievements are photographs taken at the opening of the “Cherokee Strip” at the fourth Oklahoma land run in September 1893. A more complete description of the photographs is available upon request.
