Caroline H. Gervais
Greenville, South Carolina: G. E. Elford's Press, n.d. Broadside. Broadside (printed front side only). Approx. 9.5" x 5". Broadside has light fold creases and one stanza has light pencil underlining. This poem appeared in an 1862 publication titled "War Songs of the South" edited by "Bohemian" [William G. Shepperson]. The book was published in Richmond 1862 by West and Johnson (a Confederate imprint). Shepperson attributes the poem to author "Caroline Howard Glover" from the Charleston Mercury. Caroline Howard Glover was the daughter of Rev. Samuel Gilman and widow of South Carolina Planter William Glover. The same poem was included in "War Poetry of the South" edited by William Gilmore Simms. It was published in New York 1866 by Richardson & Company. Simms names the author as "Caroline H. Gervais" (remarried name?) A much later publication edited by H. M. Wharton in 1904 titled "War Songs and Poems of the Southern Confederacy, 1861-1865 also attributes authorship to Caroline H. Gervais. Very good. Item #11011 This broadside is not listed in Parrish and Willingham. The printer, G. E. Elford of Greenville South Carolina, published other Confederate imprints during the War.

(Civil War) Pendleton, George Hunt
Washington, D.C: 1862. 1 p., pen and ink on paper, docketed on verso. Folio. Copperheads and Unconditional Unionists. Old folds, else very good. This compelling, historical manuscript was penned during the contentious and hostile political environment that was pervasive during the Lincoln Administration. The subscription is for a speech by Pendleton arguing the constitutionality of the proposed "Legal Tender Act," authorizing the government to issue paper money, popularly known as "greenbacks," that were not backed by an equal value in gold or silver, to help finance the war. Despite intense opposition, the act was passed in February 1862, and laid the foundation for a permanent paper currency. Notable signatures on the subscription, of which 10,700 copies were ordered at 50 cents apiece (Pendleton ordered 2,000), include rabid "Copperhead" and hated Southern sympathizer, Clement Vallandigham, who was famously tried and convicted of treason in 1863, and subsequently banished to the Confederacy; Kentuckian John Crittenden, author of the unsuccessful, "Crittenden Compromise" of 1860; and the speech's author, George Pendleton, leader of the peace wing of the Democratic Party who ran for Vice President on the failed McClellan-Pendleton ticket that ran against Lincoln during the presidential election of 1864. The manuscript is signed by Republicans, Democrats, and members of the Unconditional Unionist Party and includes: William H. Wadsworth, Kellian Van Rensalear Whaley, George W. Dunlap, Daniel Wolsey Voorhees, William Alexander Richardson, Anthony Lausett Knapp, William Joshu … [Click Below for Full Description]

(iv) + 154pp, plus 16pp publisher's catalogue to rear. A quirky very early guide to the experience of railway travel, with tips on preparation, conduct and deportment; what to expect every step of the way, including how to deal with staring fellow travellers who might intimidate the easily abashed or the 'softer sex'; and essentials such as the 'Disposal of Ladies and Children.' An untentionally whimsical field guide for the unseasoned Victorian traveller by rail, of which we can find no other original copies on the market; with just one known copy housed in the Illinois University Library, USA. Condition: Spine's paper covering absent, with the rear board hinge showing gauze and narrow fracture at fore edge of upper board, though nothing too offensive. Both boards remain soundly in situ, whilst showing rubbing, edge-scuffing and discolouration commensurate with age. Text-block sound, with no loose or absent leaves. Contents complete. Foxing, tanning and marking to prelims and occasionally thereon. Leaves tanned, mainly marginal. The last couple of leaves and the rear endpaper have creased corners.

Hofmann, p. 315. Hoboken 245 (first issue). The text is by Friedrich Rückert (1788-1866). Schumann set the poem in full and added the first stanza of the chorale "Nun danket alle Gott" (melody by Johann Crüger, text by Martin Rinckart). "This New Year's Song has some pleasing and original moments. In the earlier part of the piece there is a tuneful, Mendelssohnian duet for soprano and alto, and some dramatic writing for solo bass including, most unusually for Schumann, a short passage of recitative. Further variety is achieved by the imaginative use of a large orchestra. This is a work which would justify an occasional revival." Alan Walker: Robert Schumann … [Click Below for Full Description]

Soling and dampstaining to covers (see pics). Light toning, scattered foxing throughout. Binding is strong.

Gilham served in the Confederate Army and was a teacher at the Virginia Military Institute. His manual covers topics such as instructions for skirmishes, target practice, marching, and army organization. This edition features an addendum with eighty-seven plates illustrating items such as proper shooting positions, order in battery, and sketches of artillery.

MONNIER (Henry), CHABOD (Émile-Delphes)
(1862) Vicaire V, 1018. Second tirage de l'édition originale, qui n'avait été tirée qu'à deux cents exemplaires. La pagination, le format, l'imprimeur (Jules Claye) sont identiques à ceux de la première édition. Le papier utilisé est un vélin de Canson Frères, rogné uniquement en tête. Exemplaire exceptionnel et unique, comportant 270 dessins originaux d'Émile-Delphes Chabod, à l'encre ou à l'aquarelle. Parmi ces 270 dessins, 114 sont en couleurs, aquarellés ; les 156 restants, monochromes, ont été réalisés à l'encre bleue, brune, noire ou rouge. L'ouvrage, composé de 8 dialogues entre plusieurs personnages, relatifs au crime, « s'adresse plus spécialement aux esprits hardis et robustes que n'effraye pas la vue de la vérité tout entière, et qui, de l'examen, de l'analyse de cette vérité, quelle qu'elle soit, sont de force et de courage à en tirer un remède » (Préface). Benezit indique qu'Émile-Delphes Chabod, né à Nantua, a été l'élève de Signol et de Gérome, et qu'il exposa au Salon entre 1868 et 1881. "Photographe de la fange» selon les Goncourt, écrivain, caricaturiste et comédien, Henry Monnier a découvert une sorte de quart-monde social qui jusqu'à lui avait échappé même au réalisme le plus cruel. «L'humanité qu'il peint, écrit André Gide, est sordide ; notre épouvante vient de ce que cette peinture est exacte. Ces propos nous les reconnaissons, nous les entendons tous les jours. Nous voyons ces gens ; ce sont eux que nous rencontrons dans les trains, dans les omnibus... Nous les contemplons avec horreur sans doute, mais bien également avec une sorte de stupeur amusée. … [Click Below for Full Description]

Forbes, John M.?]
[np, 1862. Broadside, 6-1/2" x 10-1/2", printed in two columns. Light toning, Very Good. This broadside is a rare contribution to the literature on the North's use of freed slaves as soldiers. Its author may have been Forbes, who had written other material during the War under the pseudonym 'Audax', urging the use of Negro troops. Here he rebuts the Richmond Examiner's recent editorial, which "boasts loudly of the advantage which their system of labor gives them over us in time of war, forgetting that the boast holds good only while we timidly hesitate to break up their system." The Examiner gloats that "the heavy labor of the country goes on, in spite of the drain of young white men for the war." The broadside was published in late 1862, after President Lincoln issued his preliminary Proclamation. "Let the North... unite in demanding of the President the execution of his Proclamation on the first day of January." Audax reminds the North that Washington, Hamilton, and Jackson "warmly advocated the use of negro soldiers.... If we believe Washington and Jackson, half our armies in the South might well be composed of negroes drawn from our enemy." Not in Sabin, Bartlett, LCP, Blockson, Dumond, Nevins. Not located on OCLC, AAS, Harvard, Newberry Libraries as of January 2018.

Hoffmeister, Dr. Werner
Verlag der Königlichen Geheimen Ober-Hofbuchdrucke, Berlin, 1862. Sehr seltenes botanisches Werk. Fabri 995. Weder Prinz Waldemar von Preußen (1817-1849) hat die Herausgabe des Bandes erlebt, noch Hoffmeister, der schon während der Reise als Zeuge des Ersten Sihk-Krieges getötet wurde. Auch Klotzsch, der einen großen Teil der Pflanzen bereits bestimmt hatte, verstarb noch während dieser Arbeit. So führte Garcke die Sache zu Ende. Die Pflanzen wurden in den Vorbergen des Himalaya (Kedarnath, Oberlauf des Ganges) und in Ober-Kunawar bis in tibetisches Gebiet um Shipki gesammelt. Dabei wurden 108 neue Arten entdeckt, von denen 28 in das Werk aufgenommen, beschrieben und gezeichnet worden sind. Diese sind entweder mit dem Namenszusatz "Hoffmeisteri" oder "Waldemarii" versehen worden (siehe Inhaltsverzeichnis). *Der vollständig vorhandene Verlagseinband mit der vollständigen Titelei ist leicht fleckig, an den Kapitalien etwas eingerissen und berieben. Die Ecken und Kanten sind teilweise leicht bestoßen und berieben. Der hintere Deckel ist mit Verlagswerbung bedruckt und stärker fleckig. Das Textpapier ist nur leicht stockfleckig, die Tafeln sind etwas stärker stockfleckig und teilweise wasserrandig. Wenige Tafeln mit leichten Randläsuren oder minimal eingerissen. Die Tafeln liegen lose bei, waren aber ursprünglich eingeklebt worden, eine Bindungsart, die bei dem Gewicht des Papiers nicht halten konnte.

(BINDINGS). NORTON, CAROLINE SHERIDAN
Cambridge: Macmillan and Co, 1862. FIRST EDITION. This is a verse account of the life of French philanthropist Marguerite de la Garaye in a pleasing binding of unusual design. As the granddaughter of Richard Brinsley Sheridan, Caroline Norton (1808-77) was born into literary aristocracy, and was described by critic H. N. Coleridge as "the Byron of our modern poetesses. She has very much of that intense personal passion . . . She also has Byron's beautiful intervals of tenderness, his strong practical thought, and his forceful expression." An unfortunate marriage to an abusive wastrel forced her to take up her pen to support her family. She wrote poems and novels, and was a frequent contributor to popular periodicals. She also wrote passionate pamphlets urging politicians to change laws that handed a wife's inheritance and the custody of children over to their husbands. Her efforts were instrumental in passing the Infant Custody Act in 1839 and the Matrimonial Causes Act (1857). Like her friend Dickens, she also addressed social ills in her works, contrasting the miserable lives of children in factories with the greed and excesses of the owners. In the present work, she paints a contrast of a different sort, relating the tale of a French countess who, with her husband, devotes her life to charitable causes, founding a hospital and working side by side with her servants to feed and care for the indigent.. 202 x 155 mm. (8 x 6 1/8"). xvi, 128 pp. FIRST EDITION. Attractive contemporary brown morocco, painted and gilt, covers with painted black frame outlined by decorative gil … [Click Below for Full Description]
