        Wanderings Among the Falashas in Abyssinia: Together with a Description of the Country and its Various Inhabitants. Illustrated by a Map and Twenty Engravings of scenes and persons, taken on the spot.

      Wertheim, Macintosh, and Hunt, 24, Paternoster-Row, and 23, Holles-Street, Cavendish-Square, London, England 1862 - Lacking front board. Folding engraved "Map of East Sennaar and Abyssinia"; fine engraved hand-tinted frontispiece; 7 full-page tinted plates; 12 in-text engravings. Front blank has the inscription, "Revd. Cha. Bedford. Denton Sussex. April 14th 1865." Unrelated, but it's the day Abraham Lincoln was shot. Henry Aaron Stern was born a Jew in Germany, immigrated to London in 1839, converted to Protestantism at the Palestine Chapel in London and became a lifelong Anglican missionary for the London Society for Promoting Christianity Amongst the Jews (also known as the London Jewish Society, or London Jews' Society). With his wife, he worked as a missionary, trying to convert Jews in Asia Minor, Jerusalem, Baghdad, Bussorah and Constantinople, and Karaites in the Crimea. At the request of the London Jew's Society and with the permission of King Theodore, Stern travelled to Abyssinia (Ethiopia) to conduct a tour of Jewish villages. While there, in 1863, he became entangled there in a diplomatic dispute that led to his imprisonment. He was rescued five years later by a British military force. In 1881 he received a doctor of divinity degree. He wrote three memoirs, including the one here, which served as source material for Albert Augustus Isaacs' hagiographic 1886 biography of Stern. Fumagalli 242. Hilmy II, p. 260. viii, 322 pages. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Verses Dedicated to the 128th New York Regt

      [Baltimore]: n.p., 1862. First edition. A very good copy with moderate staining mostly to margins, bottom right corner trimmed, slight wear at folds.. 1 sheet. Company E of the 128th New York Regiment (drawn from Kinderhook, Chatham, Valatie, Hillsdale and Austerlitz) was organized at Camp Kelly in Hudson, New York and mustered in September 1862, leaving for Washington D.C. via New York City to Camp Millington, outside of Baltimore, where the regiment practiced drill, was set up just outside of Baltimore. When General J.E.B. Stuart's Confederates approached Gettysburg, the 128th was sent on a rapid jaunt to Gettysburg to engage the enemy but Stuart retreated upon learning of the Union Army's approach and no engagement was to be had. "In Gettysburg we lay that day / All anxious for a brush / But the Rebels did not seem inclined / To gratify our wish./ When they heard that we were coming/ South Mountain they passed o'er." In December 1862 the regiment headed south by ship to join General Nathaniel Banks' Department of the Gulf whose ultimate goal would be to open the Mississippi River to the Union. Sickness and disease devastated the ranks as the ship sailed to New Orleans. Thomas Potts (b.1836?), from Kinderhook, the author of this piece, was discharged shortly after arrival for a disability, on Feb 9 (or 6), 1863. We have been unable to locate any other copies of this broadside in OCLC or other sources.

        Western Australian Maps from Petermann's Geographical Journal published in "Mittheilungen aus Justus Perthes' Geographischer Anstalt," 9 maps from 1862-1881.

      Augustus Petermann, 1862-1881, Gotha: - A collection of nine maps of Australian exploration from Petermann's Journal, from 1862 to 1881. Augustus Petermann studied and worked with famous German and English cartographers in the 1840's, and eventually established his Geographical Journal in 1855, which is published to this day. Through his association with the Royal Geographical Society in London and later as the first head of the Geographical Institute in Gotha, he had extensive correspondence with a large number of explorers and travelers, who contributed the very latest information for the "Journal". His contacts from his R.G.S. days lead to many Australian explorations being reported in his "Journal" and nowhere else (eg. Lefroy 1864). The Petermann Ranges, in the west of South Australia, are named after him. Petermann's maps included much topographical and water system detail and were used to update such atlases as Stieler Hand Atlas. In 1869 Petermann encouraged the German push on the North Pole, organizing 2 expeditions. All maps are lithographs printed in color. [1862].

        Plates from the Oriental Album]

      New York 1862 - 17 loose color-printed plates, listed by numbering order on contents leaf. Each sheet: 18 x 13 1/2 inches. 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" - Reese. 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. 1) TURKISH AND ARMENIAN LADIES (abroad) 2) A TURKISH EFFENDI 4) TURKISH SCRIBE 5) TURKISH LADY OF RANK (at home) 6) TURKISH CAVASS (Police Officer) 7) TURKISH LADY (unveiled) 8) ARMENIAN PIPER 9) ARMENIAN LADIES (at home) 10) ARMENIAN MARRIAGE PROCESSION 11) ARMENIAN BRIDE 12) ALBANIAN GUARD 13) ARMENIAN PEASANT WOMAN 14) BAGHDAD MERCHANT (travelling) 17) GYPSY FORTUNE TELLING 18) BANDIT CHIEF 19) CIRCASSIAN WARRIOR [mounted on card] 20) DRUSE GIRL Bennett, p.108; Blackmer Catalogue 1715; Blackmer Sale 1500; DAB XIX, p.200; McGrath, pp.38,115,162; Reese, Stamped with a National Character 97.

      Philadelphia: John Campbell, 1862. 55; 48; 29; 20; 8; 19pp. Quarto. Original printed wrappers. Spines slightly chipped and perishing, a few wrappers detached. Tanned, with some dust soiling. Minor to moderate edge and corner wear. Two pamphlets unopened. Overall very good. A series of six pamphlets published during the debate over Abraham Lincoln's suspension of habeas corpus at the beginning of the Civil War. Many modern scholars agree with the authors, who denounce the actions of the President as unlawful and unconstitutional; Allen Nevins considered it the worst moment of Lincoln's presidency. In one work, the author provide an analysis of the decision in Ex parte Merryman, in which Supreme Court Chief Justice Roger Taney ruled that the power of suspension lay with Congress, not the Executive. Several other pamphlets respond to the opinions of Horace Binney, a long serving and well renowned Philadelphia lawyer who was engaged by the Executive branch to rebut Taney's opinion and to support Lincoln's actions when he ignored the Chief Justice. Each pamphlet with a statement on the titlepage recto reading, "On large paper, only 49 copies printed." The titles in full are as follows: 1) Parker, Joel: HABEAS CORPUS AND MARTIAL LAW. A REVIEW OF THE OPINION OF CHIEF JUSTICE TANEY, IN THE CASE OF JOHN MERRYMAN. SABIN 58696. 2) [Johnston, James F.]: THE SUSPENDING POWER AND THE WRIT OF HABEAS CORPUS.

        Historically important and previously unreported letter: Generals Stonewall Jackson and R. S. Ewell order two spies from "beyond our lines." Could the information they received have caused the routing of Union General Pope at 2nd Manassas?

      n.p., July 24, 1862. 4.5" x 7.25". "War-date Autograph Letter Signed ""T. J. Jackson Maj. Genl,"" 1 page, 4.5"" x 7.25"". July 24, 1862. To Major General Richard S. Ewell who has docketed the letter on verso in pencil, signing ""R.S. Ewell."" Lightly soiled with scattered staining on verso. Expertly strengthened. Lightly professionally cleaned. Fine condition.Gen. Stonewall Jackson orders two spies to help the President of the Orange & Alexandria Railroad procure information from ""beyond our lines"" --- just weeks later Jackson's army struck the railroad at Manassas Junction forcing Union Gen. Pope to retreat in the Battle of 2nd Manassas --- Pope was blamed for the defeat and removed from command.On January 24, 1862, Ewell was promoted to Major General and served alongside General Stonewall Jackson through the Valley Campaign in Virginia. In full, ""General, Please let Mr. J.S. Barbour select a couple of men from your command for the purpose of procuring information beyond our lines. Respectfully yours, T.J. Jackson Maj. Genl.""Addressed in Jackson's hand at lower left to Maj. Gen. R. S. Ewell. On verso are two dockets in Gen. Ewell's hand in light pencil: ""Mr. Barbour wishes to confer with two men from the 13th Va., he is referred to Genl. Early. July 24, 62 R.S. Ewell"" and ""Genl. Early will please detail the men if Mr. Barbour find those he wishes."" ""Mr. J.S. Barbour"" was John Strode Barbour (1820-1892), President of the Orange and Alexandria Railroad. When Union Gen. John Pope's Army of Virginia joined Gen. George B. McClellan in the Valley and Gen. Pope moved toward Gordonsville, Virginia, a railroad junction strategically located between Richmond and the Valley, General Robert E. Lee sent Gen. Jackson to protect the town. The Orange and Alexandria Railroad extended from Alexandria to Gordonsville, Virginia. Ostensibly, Barbour wanted spies, ""a couple of men"" from the 13th Virginia ""for the purpose of procuring information beyond our lines…"" His railroad line was the only rail link between Washington, D.C., Richmond, Virginia, and the Shenandoah Valley.Worthy of further research: What information was obtained from the two spies by Barbour and given to Gen. Jackson? On the evening of August 26, 1862, after passing around Union Gen. John Pope's right flank, Major General Stonewall Jackson's wing of the army struck Barbour's Orange & Alexandria Railroad at Bristoe Station and before daybreak August 27th, marched to capture and destroy the massive Union supply depot at Manassas Junction. Also supporting this is a letter dated one day later ""Pope had begun moving the Union army toward Gordonsville, in part: “The enemy’s cavalry about 1400 strong crossed the Blue Ridge yesterday in the direction of Conrad’s Store. You should keep a look out . . . and see that the enemy does not turn your flank and get in your rear. Should he attempt to get to the C[entral] R. R. . . . please telegraph or let me know in the quickest possible time. . . . I am well satisfied that you are making good use of your time by drilling . . . I wish that you would have your weekly inspection on Saturday evening instead of Sunday, and give your command every practicable opportunity of observing the Sabbath.” This surprise movement, perhaps on information procured by the spies, forced Gen. Pope's Army into an abrupt retreat across Bull Run Creek, having lost 15,000 men. Gen. Pope was blamed for the defeat and relieved of his command."

        Confederate Naval hero John Taylor Wood telegrams his wife after serving aboard the CSS Virginia as it battled the USS Monitor at the Battle of Hampton Roads, calling it a " Great Victory "

      [Hampton Roads, VA], March 9, [1862], Oct. 4, 1861. 4.75" x 6.5", 8" x 9.75". "Manuscript Letter, 1 page, 4.75"" x 6.5"" on ""Norfolk and Petersburg Rail Road Company's TELEGRAPH LINE"" stationery, Norfolk, March 9, [1862], to ""Mrs. John T. Wood."" Light adhesive remnants on verso, usual folds, else fine. Offered together with Stephen Mallory Partly-printed Document Signed, ""S R Mallory,"" as Secretary of the Confederate States Navy, 1 page, 8"" x 9.75"", Richmond, October 4, 1861, appointing Taylor, ""A Lieutenant in the Navy of the Confederate States..."" Light toning along expected folds, else fine.A fine communication from Wood, who served as a lieutenant aboard the C.S.S. Virginia (formerly the U.S.S. Merrimack), after concluding the first battle against the U.S.S. Monitor: the first engagement between two ironclads in the history of naval warfare. Although most historians have concluded that the battle ended in a stalemate with no clear victor, the crew of the Virginia viewed the two day action, in which the Confederate ironclad destroyed two Union warships and forced several others to run aground as well as forcing the Monitor to withdraw after an exploding shell scored a direct hit on its pilothouse, blinding Captain Worden. Taylor's message reads in full: ""Thank Heaven all well Great Victory"" Believing that they had won the day, the Virginia's captain Catesby ap Roger Jones ordered the ship back to port. Meanwhile, the crew of the Monitor regrouped, and returned to the scene under the command of its executive officer only to find that the Virginia, which had been badly damaged in the firefight, had withdrawn. John Taylor Wood (1830-1904) , the son of Union General Robert Wood and Anne Taylor, the daughter of President Zachary Taylor, graduated from the United States Naval Academy in 1852. Initially maintaining a neutral stance following the election of Abraham Lincoln in 1860, his sympathies headed South after the Battle of Fort Sumter. On April 21, 1861, he resigned his commission in the U.S. Navy and retired to his Maryland farm. The farming life did not last long, however, as life was becoming too dangerous. Fearing for the safety of his family, the Woods moved south to Richmond, Virginias where his uncle, Jefferson Davis, was now presiding over the Confederate capital (Jefferson Davis' first wife, Sarah Taylor, was Wood's mother's sister).In October 1861, Taylor received a commission as a lieutenant in the Confederate States Navy and became an officer aboard the C.S.S. Virginia (the former U.S.S. Merrimack) and fought against he U.S.S. Monitor at the Battle of Hampton Roads. Wood commanded the rear pivot gun and fired the shot that wounded the Monitor's captain. Appointed an aide-de-camp to President Jefferson Davis, Wood was awarded the rank and pay of a colonel of cavalry, giving him simultaneous commands in both the Confederate Army and Navy allowing him to serve as an effective liaison between the services and the government in Richmond. In that capacity, Wood undertook an extensive survey of Confederate costal defenses. During the summer of 1863, he led a series of successful raids against Union shipping in Chesapeake Bay. In the summer of 1864, Wood commanded the C.S.S. Tallahassee, a raider and blockade runner. During his tenure aboard the Tallahassee, he captured an astounding 33 Union ships during a ten-day period off the coast of New England. By April 1865, the situation looked grim for the Confederacy. Wood was with his uncle on April 2, attending St. Paul's Church in Richmond, when a telegram from Lee arrived informing the president that Petersburg would soon fall and the government must evacuate. That evening, he, Davis, and other members of the Confederate government boarded a train for Danville, Virginia. They continued their flight south, where, on May 10, 1865, near the town of Irwinsville, Georgia, Davis and Wood were both captured by Union forces. Wood soon made his escape, with his uncle's permission, by bribing one of his captors and hiding in a nearby swamp until the Federals and their prisoners left the area. Wood made his way south to Florida and met up with Major General John C. Breckinridge. Acquiring a small boat, Wood, Breckinridge, and several other men first attempted to row east to The Bahamas, but abandoned the plan and decided to instead make their way south toward Cuba. He managed to trade with a crew of Union deserters his boat for their slightly bigger sloop. They reached the north shore of Cuban on June 10. He remained in Cuba for two weeks before heading north to Canada, where his family soon joined him. Reunited, they settled in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and remained there for the rest of their lives. John Taylor Wood died on July 19, 1904. "

        Lincoln Orders a National Day of Thanksgiving in Honor of the Union Victory at Gettysburg

      Massachusetts 1862 - Broadside. Proclamation of Thanksgiving. Massachusetts, [probably Boston], ca. July 27-August 6, 1862. 1 p., 20 x 28 in. Lincoln's first call for a national day of Thanksgiving. The upper portion prints Massachusetts Governor John A. Andrew's announcement of Lincoln's Proclamation dated July 27, 1863, while the lower portion prints Lincoln's actual proclamation, dated July 15, 1863, designating August 6 as a "day for National Thanksgiving, Praise, and Prayer." After Union victory at the Battle of Gettysburg on July 1-3, 1863, on July 15, 1863, Lincoln assigned August 6 to be "a day for National Thanksgiving, Praise, and Prayer." This was his first proclamation of a national day of thanksgiving.Complete TextProclamation of ThanksgivingJuly 15, 1863By the President of the United States of America.A Proclamation.It has pleased Almighty God to hearken to the supplications and prayers of an afflicted people, and to vouchsafe to the army and the navy of the United States victories on land and on the sea so signal and so effective as to furnish reasonable grounds for augmented confidence that the Union of these States will be maintained, their constitution preserved, and their peace and prosperity permanently restored. But these victories have been accorded not without sacrifices of life, limb, health and liberty incurred by brave, loyal and patriotic citizens. Domestic affliction in every part of the country follows in the train of these fearful bereavements. It is meet and right to recognize and confess the presence of the Almighty Father and the power of His Hand equally in these triumphs and in these sorrows:Now, therefore, be it known that I do set apart Thursday the 6th. day of August next, to be observed as a day for National Thanksgiving, Praise and Prayer, and I invite the People of the United States to assemble on that occasion in their customary places of worship, and in the forms approved by their own consciences, render the homage due to the Divine Majesty, for the wonderful things he has done in the Nation's behalf, and invoke the influence of His Holy Spirit to subdue the anger, which has produced, and so long sustained a needless and cruel rebellion, to change the hearts of the insurgents, to guide the counsels of the Government with wisdom adequate to so great a national emergency, and to visit with tender care and consolation throughout the length and breadth of our land all those who, through the vicissitudes of marches, voyages, battles and sieges, have been brought to suffer in mind, body or estate, and finally to lead the whole nation, through the paths of repentance and submission to the Divine Will, back to the perfect enjoyment of Union and fraternal peace.In witness whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the seal of the United States to be affixed.Done at the city of Washington, this fifteenth day of July, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, and of the Independence of the United States of America the eighty-eighth.By the President: ABRAHAM LINCOLNWILLIAM H. SEWARD, Secretary of State.Historic BackgroundIn 1861 and earlier in 1863, Lincoln proclaimed days of "national humiliation, fasting, and prayer." Soon after he issued this proclamation assigning August 6, 1863, as a day of "National Thanksgiving," he was moved by a letter from Sarah Josepha Hale, who had lobbied the four prior presidents unsuccessfully to make Thanksgiving a third national holiday i- n addition to Independence Day and Washington's Birthday. On October 3, 1863, exactly 74 years after George Washington's first Presidential Thanksgiving Proclamation, Lincoln established the fourth Thursday in November as an annual national day of Thanksgiving. See George Washington's Thanksgiving Proclamation description for additional background.ConditionProfessionally mended along several folds and flattened; minor toning and offsetting.
