        Sitten- und Charakterbilder aus der Turkei und Tscherkessien.

      Berlin, Reinhold Schlingmann 1862.. 4 Bll., 288 S. HLdr. d. Zt. mit Rückenschild. 16 x 12 cm. Seltene einzige Ausgabe dieser autobiographischen Reiseschilderung in Tagebuchform, der wohl einzigen Publikation des nicht weiter bekannten Verfassers C. Stuecker (geb. 1826), der als Lieutenant zunächst in englischen und später in türkischen Militärdiensten stand und hier ein lebhaftes Sittengemälde seiner Zeit liefert. Enthalten sind die drei Abschnitte "Die englisch-deutschen Legionen", "Die Türkei" und "Tscherkessien". Die sechs Kapitel über die Türkei liefern schöne und auch schonungslose Beschreibungen aus dem multikulturellen Konstantinopel, u. a. mit Kapiteln uber "Türkische Mode", "Constantinopolitanische Strassenreiniger" (die herrenlosen Hunde der Stadt, die jeglichen Unrat auf den Strassen vertilgen), "Feuerbesprechung durch Zauberer", "Wie man die Türken aus ihrer Hauptstadt treibt", "Armenische Prellereien", "Verkauf tscherkessischer Mädchen", "Kabassen und Kanucken", "Die Deutschen in Pera", "Ein türkischer Räuberhauptmann aus Bremen", "Seeräuber auf dem Bosporus", "Orientalisches Kaffeehausleben", ferner über den Harem des Sultans, die Hamams der Stadt, Begräbnisrituale usw. Eine Reise während der Sommermonate erscheint dem Verfasser aufgrund des üblen Geruchs in der Stadt wenig ratsam ("Zur Sommerzeit durchduftet ein so pestilenzialischer Gestank die holprigen Strassen, dass es schon einer ziemlichen Dosis von Nasenstumpfheit bedarf, um diesen Geruch nicht für einzig in seiner Art anzuerkennen", S. 95) - Etwas stockfleckig.

        BUTLER'S PROCLAMATION. / HIS OUTRAGEOUS INSULT TO THE / WOMEN OF NEW ORLEANS! / SOUTHERN MEN, AVENGE / THEIR WRONGS!!! / [followed by a bold rule and a slightly revised version of Butler's famous proclamation suggesting, in some circumstances, a New Orleans woman might be treated as a "woman of the town plying her avocation"]

      [New Orleans, LA, 1862. First edition, the Philip D. Sang copy. Printed broadside, 13 x 9 1/4 inches, employing several sizes and styles of type including larger display types. One of the great Civil War broadsides, and the only recorded copy. This printing is the bold Confederate response to Butler's general order attempting to restrict the behavior of the ladies of New Orleans, calling on the men of the South to uphold the honor of southern womanhood. Parrish & Willingham 1049 (Philip D. Sang Sale, Sotheby's sale 5301, lot 3, 27 March 1985, this copy: $2420). Not in Jumonville's Bibliography of New Orleans Imprints, 1764-1864." Not in Hummel. As far as we have been able to determine, this is the only original extant copy; all entries listed on OCLC are for microform copies. Paper browned, worn at folds, with some small separations and repairs, a few small stains in bottom margin. Glazed and framed. (7241). The unknown, clearly Confederate, printer of this broadside has re-printed Butler's order no. 28, known infamously as the "Woman's Order," on the lower half of this broadside. He has, however, carefully revised the title of Butler's assistant adjutant general from "Chief of Staff" to "Chief of Stables." Major-General Benjamin Butler and Admiral David Farragut captured the city of New Orleans at the end of April 1862. Butler set about establishing martial law in the city, ordering the confiscation of firearms, the banning of flags other than the Stars & Stripes, restricting certain newspaper publications, forbidding public assemblies, etc. Though he allowed the municipal government to continue to manage day-to-day affairs, and his occupation allowed for a more regular flow of food and goods into the hungry city, he and his troops were not welcomed by the conquered population. The ladies of New Orleans protested in ways they could, picking up their skirts and turning their backs as though to avoid something foul and dirty whenever they saw a soldier, promptly leaving streetcars if troopers boarded, and occasionally emptying chamber pots onto the heads of unsuspecting officers walking under their balconies. Butler's patience stretched thin, he issued his "General Order No. 28" on May 15, 1862, the line "a woman of the town" implying the ladies could be viewed as prostitutes. As historian Chester Hearn noted in his book When the Devil Came Down to Dixie: Ben Butler in New Orleans (LSU Press, 2000): "Word of the order hit the streets of New Orleans like a giant keg of gunpowder. The explosion thundered across the South, where nothing was more sacred than the honor of a woman." The southern response included Confederate Gen. P.G.T. Beauregard's own General Order 44, in which he reprinted Butler's order and added his own call to defense: "Arouse friends, and drive back from our soil, those infamous invaders of our homes and disturbers of our family ties." Butler's missteps with the population of New Orleans led to his removal as military administrator and to his recall to Washington in December 1862.

        Catalogue of a collection of American Birds belonging to Philip Lutley Sclater

      London: N. Trubner & Co, 1862. 8vo. Letterpress title with ornithological wood-engraved vignette by Pearson. 20 hand-coloured lithographed plates by and after John Jennens, printed by M. & N. Hanhart. Some plates trimmed. Modern calf backed marbled paper boardsFirst edition and apparently very rare: "Only 100 copies of the perfect work have been prepared" (note by Trubner & Co. on the wrappers of "The Ibis" for July and October 1862), and Wood and Zimmer record that only 100 copies with plates were published.This is Philip Sclater's catalogue of his personal collection, which was housed in ten small cabinets cross-referenced to the present work: "I began to form a collection of bird-skins after I commenced my residence in Oxford in 1848, being induced to do so by the advice of ... H.E. Strickland. ... My collection at present consists of about 4100 specimens, representing 2170 species of American birds of the Orders Passeres, Fissirostres and Scansores. Of these 386 are type-specimens, being those from which the original descriptions of the species have been taken. In conclusion, I may add that, in selecting specimens for this collection, one of my great objects has been to illustrate the geographical distribution of the species" (Preface).It was this interest in the geographic distribution of birds that led to Sclater proposing zoogeographic regions that are still in use today. Subsequently, Sclater's collection of bird skins were transferred to the British Museum [now the Natural History Museum], beginning in 1886. At around the same time the museum was augmented by the collections of Gould, Salvin and Godman, Hume, and others to become the largest in the world.Sclater was "the founder and editor of The Ibis, the journal of the British Ornithologists' Union, and secretary of the Zoological Society of London from 1860 to 1903. His interest in natural history spread beyond the bounds of the bird family, but some of the birds named after Sclater include: dusky-billed parrotlet (now changed from Forpus sclateri to Forpus modestus); Sclater's monal (Lopophorus sclateri); erect-crested penguin (Eudyptes sclateri); Ecuadorian cacique (Cacicus sclateri); Mexican chickadee (Poecile sclateri) and the bay-vented Cotinga (Doliornis sclateri).Anker 449; Fine Bird Books (1990) p.139 "only 100 copies issued"; Goode Published writings of Philip Lutley Sclater (1896) 8; Nissen IVB 837; Wood p. 557; Zimmer p. 559 (quoting Trubner).

        Civil War Diary, Archive

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 "pickets". stationed all the way to Washinton". after we passed Baltimore the guards were much nearer together and there were a larger number at Philadelphia and all along the route to Baltimore"." 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 cause"."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 river". but as the firing had ceased soon returned". 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. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Colonial Sketches, or, Five Years in South Australia, with Hints to Capitalists and Emigrants

      Hall, Virtue and Co., London 1862 - Duodecimo, viii, 167 pages. Blind-decorated dark green ribbed cloth lightly marked and slightly rubbed and bumped at the extremities; two trifling surface blemishes to the front pastedown; an excellent copy with the contemporary (and thus very early) blind-stamp of the Adelaide bookseller W.C. Rigby on the front flyleaf. 'I was offered some time before leaving South Australia, strong inducements to write a history of that virtuous territory which should be palatable to certain classes of a small community; but as I had no high opinion of either the colony or the principles on which it was founded, or its subsequent career, I could not be the partisan, at any price, of a locality which I could not conscientiously recommend as a suitable field of emigration for any class of my fellow-country-men' (author's preface, although he showed the cut of his nib on the title page: 'Castigat ridendo mores'). Indeed, nothing is sacred, so it is perhaps hardly surprising to learn that 'every copy available was purchased and destroyed by the Angas family' (Ferguson 10265, citing the note written in the Petherick copy in the National Library).

Octavo, original blue cloth rebacked, with original spine laid down, marbled endpapers. $2800.First edition of this fascinating look at Ethiopian Jews, one of the earliest obtainable works in English on the Falashas, with eight tinted lithographed plates, in-text engravings, and one folding map.Henry Aaron Stern was born a Jew in Germany in 1820. Upon converting to Christianity in 1840, Stern joined the Hebrew College of the London Jews' Society with the intention of becoming a missionary. He traveled widely, working as a missionary to Jewish communities in Baghdad, Jerusalem, and Constantinople, among other places. The London Jews' Society became particularly interested in the fate of Ethiopia'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,' on the king's ferocity, and with having stated that his mother was a vendor of Kosso" (DNB), a common medicinal plant.

He also writes of the agricultural potential of the region, commercial transit facilities, etc. "The discovery of a great new gold field on the upper Fraser River caused a rapidly increasing stream of immigrants, and the present work was designed for their aid, to accelerate the development of England's newest, and probably her most valuable dependency" - Wagner-Camp.

        Autograph letter signed.

      1862 - (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 scientif.

      One folding lithographed plate in Vol. IV. Seven vols. Large 4to, a fine prize binding of cont. blue morocco, sides elaborately decorated in gilt, spines richly gilt, a.e.g., upper cover of Vol. I stamped in gilt "Académie des Sciences. Prix fondé par Mme la Mise de Laplace pour le 1er Elève sortant de l'École Polytechnique 1862. M. Matrot Adolphe. Né le 9 Juillet 1841 à Paris," all other covers stamped in gilt in center with the royal arms of the Académie des Sciences. Paris: Imprimerie Royale, 1843-47. First edition of the collected works of Laplace, luxuriously produced at the initiative of Laplace's widow and financed by King Louis Philippe's government. Contained here are Laplace's epoch-making works on astrophysics, mathematics and probability theory. The first five volumes are taken up by Traité de Mécanique Céleste, the foundation of modern theoretical astronomy. It has been called "the eighteenth-century Almagest" and "a sequel to Newton's Principia" (Horblit 63). Volume Six contains his Exposition du Systeme du Monde, one of the most successful popularizations of science ever composed. It is Laplace's resumé of current astronomical understanding. The final and thickest volume combines the Essai Philosophique sur les Probabilités with the Théorie analytique des Probabilités, the introduction to Laplace's groundbreaking masterpiece on probability theory. "The Essai has certainly had a longer life and almost certainly a larger number of readers than any of Laplace's other writings. The reason for its continuing - indeed, its growing - success has clearly been the importance that probability, statistics, and stochastic analysis have increasingly assumed in science, social science, and philosophy of science."-D.S.B. Adolphe Matrot (1841-96), became a high official in the French national railroad company. A fine and handsome set.

        Pocket Diary for 1862. Containing a Blank Space for Every Day in the Year, Cash Account, Memoranda, &c.: 1862 Civil War Union Soldier and Musician Uriah Johnson's Manuscript Diary: Pennsylvania Reserve Volunteer Corps, 6th Regiment Band [with] Two Ambrotypes, Four CDVs, and One Glass Plate Photographic Negative

      'Published Annually for the Trade' 1862 - Diarist's name on front and rear endpapers, entries on daily diary pages, nearly all written in from January 1, 1862 to June 28, 1862, with notes on two other daily pages (seemingly chosen at random), a couple memoranda pages, and the 'summary of cash account' page, manuscript record of service (in the author's hand, so likely something he wrote for personal reference) laid in. A book curse is written on the front free endpaper: 'Steal not this book my honest friend for fear the gallows may be your end.' Flexible leather binding with leather closure over fore-edge, cloth protective bands designed to cover top and bottom page ridges affixed to rear endpaper, all edges gilt. A diary bought in Camp Pierpont, Virginia in 1862 by Uriah Johnson, a member of the band for the sixth regiment of the Pennsylvania Reserve Volunteer Corps. He enlisted at the age of 17, on August 27th, 1861 and served for three years in several different companies until his final discharge on June 13th, 1865, at which time he was a 2nd lieutenant. He was present at the Siege of Richmond and other important engagements. Also included: two ambrotypes (one of the diaries; another of him and a relative, possibly his brother); cartes-de-visite of Abraham Lincoln, Uriah Johnson's grandfather (labeled in pencil on reverse), Mollie (labeled in pencil on front edge), and Uriah Johnson (this last mounted on a piece of cardstock); and a glass plate photographic negative. One ambrotype is housed in a wooden case with a clasp, the other is in one half of a similar case (the other half is not present).Manuscript diaries from the American Civil War are scarce, and each shines a unique light on the conflict. This example provides a charmingly innocent account of events, which underscores how young and inexperienced many of the soldiers fighting in the American Civil War were. There are also detailed accounts of day-to-day activities. The first passage displays the sort of optimism one would expect from a young man who volunteered: 'In Camp Pierpont Virginia. A beautiful day nice and warm. Camp very quiet more so than usual. Still considerable talk about the Battle of Drainsville is heard wherever we got that was the first Union victory on the Potomac, and the Boys all feel proud of it.' In the second week of January are five consecutive entries in which Johnson explains that soldiers are expecting their pay, which finally arrived on January 11, 1862: 'Received our pay $42.50 for two months service November and December.' He was quick to put it to use: 'Bought lumber to build winter quarters of a farmer paid him 2 cents a foot for boards' (Jan. 13). Other passages provide an immediacy not found in many accounts of the war: 'We are living without tents and expecting an attack every minute.' (March 11), and Johnson relays news as it is received by the camp: 'We have cheering news that Mannassas is evacuated and our forces now have possesion of the strongest Rebel hold'.One memoranda page provides a firsthand account of the Battle of Drainsville on December 20, 1862: 'The Battle of Drainsville was fought Dec the 20th 1862. Our loss was eight killed while that of the rebels is suposed as near as can be asertained one hundred. The number of the killed in our Regiment was three and fourteen wounded two severely the remaining slightly.' [Attributes: Signed Copy]
