WINDER, John Henry (1800 - 1865)
1 page (front and back), 8.25 x 7.75 inches (torn from larger sheet), Richmond, Virginia, letter dated March 27, 1862. This note is signed by the Confederate Brigadier General and commandant of the notorious Libby Prison during the Civil War, on the back of an appeal letter by a captain hoping to clear a soldier accused of disloyalty. The prison was for Union soldiers, and its next commandant, appointed on Winder's death, was hung for war crimes based on prisoner treatment there. From the letter: "This is to certify that Mr John Emmenhausen a resident of the city of Richmond Va. and who has been arrested and confined on the charge of disloyalty was a Sargeant in my company (K) 1st Regt. Va. Vols. and behaved himself very bravely in the engagements with the Enemy on July 8th & 21st 1861 and I have every reason to believe him to be a true southern man..." Winder's note on the back says, "What is Emmenhausen arrested for Jon H. Winder B.G." Uneven edge on the bottom of the letter; browning along natural folds. Very good(-) condition.

Partial Transcript""Columbus: Mch 4 , 1862Dear CWe had news last evening of another repulse of our forces at Manassas & the death of McLellan [sic]. The news generally credited for an hour or two was by the abolitionists well recd particularly the death of Mc. some even going so far as to say that if he was killed it could compensate for the loss of a battleI observe that you think there are some ""celestial phenomena"" developed in the political in these latter days.There certainly are developments terrestrial among which is the plan of quartering on the enemy. Do you take?YoursPrentiss""Historical Background Prentiss fought in the Mexican-American War and the Civil War, rising to the rank of Major General. He was captured at Shiloh along with 2200 other Union troops. He is often credited with holding the Confederate Army at bay in the area known as the 'Hornet's Nest,' allowing General Grant's army to survive the battle, and continue its trek into the South unfettered.

GOULD, John (1804-1881)
London: [Taylor and Francis for the Author, 1862 - 1873]. Lithograph, coloured by hand, by J. Wolf & H. C. Richter, printed by Walter. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling, and a few skillfully repaired small tears in the top margin. 14 x 21 1/4 inches. A beautiful image from John Gould's "The Birds of Great Britain": "A magnificent work with life-like portraits of birds of the British Isles." (Wood) This plate, from what Sacheverell Sitwell called "The most popular of all his works" (Fine Bird Books), shows a new liveliness of treatment that is not present in Gould's earlier works. This change is thanks to suggestions made by Joseph Wolf, who drew 57 of the plates and accompanied Gould on an ornithological tour of Scandinavia in 1856. Gould's illustrations were all painstakingly coloured by hand, as he states in his preface: "Many of the public are quite unaware how the colouring of these large plates is accomplished; and not a few believe that they are produced by some mechanical process or by chromo-lithography. This, however, is not the case: every sky with its varied tints and every feather of each bird were coloured by hand; and when it is considered...it will most likely cause some astonishment to those who give the subject a thought." Cf.Fine Bird Books (1990), p. 102; cf. Nissen IVB 372; cf. Sauer 23; cf. Wood, p. 365; cf. Zimmer, p. 261.

GUYER, I. D
Chicago: Church, Goodman & Cushing, 1862. First Edition. Hardcover. A Good copy of a scarce book. Engravings. Quarto bound in the publisher's brown cloth; 200 pages. Howes 468; New Howes 465 "b". A scarce Ante-Fire Imprint with chapters on numerous industries including bookbinding, dentistry, billiard table manufacturing, comedy, coffee, furs, beer, railroads, whips, and many others. With eight full-page plates and a number of text engravings. The two tinted lithographs are lacking from this copy. The double-page frontispiece compares a drawing of Chicago in 1820 to a bird's-eye view of the city in 1862. Included in the pagination are four advertisements for railroads at the end. The paper is brittle with some leaves partly detached and a few completely detached, which seems often to be the case with this title. The edges of the original binding are lightly worn with the spine tips chipped. A two-inch split occurs at the top of the front cover where it meets the spine resulting in some looseness to the cover.

TROLLOPE, Anthony
London: Chapman and Hall,, 1862. With Illustrations by J. E. Millais. 2 volumes, octavo. Original purple wavy-grained cloth, the grain running perpendicularly for both volumes, covers blocked with conventional frame design in blind, on spines with farming designs and lettered in gold, pale yellow endpapers. Without publisher's catalogue sometimes found at end of vol. I ("cannot … be regarded as essential" – Sadleir); 40 wood-engraved illustrations, with first state captions throughout. Spines inevitably and very lightly sunned, a fine set: rare thus. First edition, first issue, an exceptionally good copy. Unusually, the two volumes were published nearly ten months apart, and subsequent re-issues of each volume did not proceed in step, with the result is that sets often have the two volumes in mismatched issues. Sadleir claims priority for copies with the grain of the cloth perpendicular for vol. I and horizontal for vol. II, but his bibliographical reasoning is, for once, unconvincing. The text in both volumes of this set conforms entirely to the first issue (i.e. copies bound from parts), in matching bindings in which the grain of the cloth runs perpendicularly on both.

BACHMANN, John
New York: John Bachmann, [no date but 1862]. Chromolithograph, by Bachmann. Small expert marginal repairs. 22 3/4 x 31 inches. A fine copy of this bird's-eye by Bachmann, 'one of the finest American artists and lithographers specializing in bird's-eye views' (Stephenson & McKee), recalling a pivotal moment in the Civil War. 'Bachmann did six views of the Confederate States like this one ... They are very rare.' (Rumsey). The clouds of smoke over Fort Donelson show that this image is intended to recall a moment in time between February 11th and the 16th, 1862, when Brigadier General Ulysses S. Grant besieged and secured the surrender of Fort Donelson. The 12,000-stong garrison's unconditional surrender was a major victory for the Union and a catastrophe for the South: Kentucky stayed in the Union as a result, and Tennessee became vulnerable to a Northern advance along the Tennessee and Cumberland Rivers. Grant, who received the nickname 'Unconditional Surrender', was also promoted to Major General, and came to be considered as an important figure in the western theater of the war. Stephenson Civil War Maps (1989) 23.5; Rumsey 2657; Reps p.160 ('No finer artist of city views worked in America than John Bachmann. Unfortunately, there is no artist about whom less is known')

Que voulez-vous, la vie est une vallée de larmes ; à l'exception de quelques fleurs que vous ne voulez pas semer sur le chemin de mon existence, le reste ne vaut pas la peine qu'on s'en occupe et j'aime bien mieux les étoiles de vos yeux que toutes celles que pourraient semer sur moi un gros homme plus ou moins barbu qui perche dans quelque ministère plus ou moins maritime [.]».

Je renonce pour vous à la gloire que j'allais conquérir en Cochinchine. J'aurais pu devenir un autre Malakoff et même me mettre sur les rangs pour la place de grand maître de la garde-robe, si je n'avais pas eu d'instinct une répulsion persistante pour tout ce qui touche à ces fonctions locales.

Fourth volume with lower half of spine and titlepage lacking. Of the remaining volumes, sixteen are in cloth-backed boards and sixty- five are in original wrappers, spines generally worn. Second volume with contemporary manuscript index, possibly by Møller. Overall very good. A tremendous run of this landmark Greenland newspaper, equally celebrated for its remarkable quality, range of content, and longevity. The fourth volume of the this set is enhanced by a presentation inscription from Lars Møller, the longtime editor and noted native lithographer, to Hinrich Rink, proprietor of Greenland's first regular press and founder of the paper. Further, the plates in the fourth volume have been hand- colored, presumably by Møller in Rink's honor. ATUAGAGDLIUTT..., translated literally as "distributed reading matter," stands alone when evaluating the impact of a single printed periodical on a native culture. The catholic editorial taste of Berthelsen and Møller not only brought the world's great literature to the doors of native Greenlanders, but did so in a manner that accomplished dual milestones in Greenlandic cultural history. First, by printing entirely in the native language, they transmitted the worldly canon, much of it for the first … [Click Below for Full Description]

Often referred to as the most sumptuous and costly of all British bird books, the plates depict scenes with more sophisticated subjects than Gould's previous works, including nests, chicks and eggs: "I also felt that there was an opportunity of greatly enriching the work by giving figures of the young of many of the species of various genera - a thing hitherto almost entirely neglected by author's, and I feel assured that this infantile age of birdlife will be of much interest for science." (Gould "Preface" to "Introduction", 1873). Initially employed as a taxidermist [he was known as the 'bird-stuffer'] by the Zoological Society, Gould's fascination with birds began in the "late 1820s [when] a collection of birds from the Himalayan mountains arrived at the Society's museum and Gould conceived the idea of publishing a volume of imperial folio sized hand-coloured lithographs of the eighty species, with figures of a hundred birds (A Century of Birds Hitherto Unfigured from the Himalaya Mountains, 1830-32).

WILLIAM B. STARK
EGREMONT MASSACHUSETTS MA 1862 - On offer is an original, superb relic of the Civil War and an incredibly detailed, historical document with a riveting narrative being the journal of William. B. Stark beginning with his enlistment July 21st 1862 until April 13th 1865 when he relates the details of Appomattox and Lee's surrender and the jubilation of the troops. Thusly his entire tour in the Civil War. Stark was from Egremont, Massachusetts near the New York state border in western Massachusetts. Mr. Stark served in the 34th Regiment Infantry Massachusetts Volunteers. This is one of the most detailed writings of one man's service we have ever read. Stark took copious notes and left no details unmentioned from a detailed listing of every battle and engagement, his fellow soldiers, officers, kit and clothing, foods eaten etc., etc. He never fails to mention names and Mr. Stark to history's benefit writes profusely. There is tremendous battle content with detailed explanations of terrain, weather and conditions. He describes the mood of the men, the affect of the conditions and writes very well too. One online source relates the following of this famed company of volunteers: 34th Regiment Infantry Organized at Worcester August 1, 1862. Moved to Washington, D.C., August 15-17. Attached to Military District of Washington and Alexandria to February, 1863.
