Southhampton County, Virginia
Southhampton County, Virginia: 1862. Quarto. 10 pages with 3 pages of voter's names and officials. A detailed record of a local election 11 months after the beginning of the Civil War. It would seem that this is the election held on March 13, 1862 on the new constitution which was to remove references to the United States. Since so many men over the age of 21 were at war, only 13 showed up to vote on this list. It was only in 1864 that they had a new Virginia constitution that deleted the term "United States". Page 10 signed by the following Commissioners: Robert Ricks, R.H. Blythe; James W. Parker, Atop page 2, L.R. Edwards, Clerk of Southhampton County has written his name, along with Robert Ricks and Richard H Blythe. Form notes; James W. Parker is Commissioner appointed to open and superintend, Conductor appointed to conduct is B (?) F Vick. Oath closes signed by L.R. Edwards, Clerk. Follows: We (signed Robert Ricks and Richard H. Blythe) note details and again sign at bottom. Page 3 is the Poll Books which is in two columns: Poll Book/The Constitution as amended and Schedule and Poll Book, the Right of Suffrage.

Duchenne studied the mechanism of facial expression during emotion; his atlas of photographs is a most important contribution to medical photography." (Garrison-Morton). "Duchenne was the first to use electricity for the study of the anatomy of the human body. For this specific work, he stimulated the muscles of the face with electricity and recorded the various results in photographs that he himself made. In doing so, he in effect distanced himself from the traditional notion that the passions and expressions were metaphysically motivated. The results of his research were used by Charles Darwin in The Expression of the Emotions in Man and Animals (1873). - Visit our website for additional images and information. Very Good.

Lincoln, Abraham
John Murray Forbes, Boston, 1862. First and only printed pamphlet of the Emancipation Proclamation, produced for distribution to Union soldiers and African Americans (both enslaved and free) in December of 1862; the month preceding the issuance of the executive order. 16mo, original salmon wrappers as issued. The pamphlet's publisher, Boston industrialist and abolitionist John Murray Forbes, emphasized the necessity of the Civil War in the effort to end slavery with a quote printed on the rear panel of the pamphlet from a speech attributed to "Alex M. Stephens, Vice President of the so-called Confederate States, delivered March 21, 1861: This stone (slavery), which was rejected by the first builders, is become the chief stone of the corner in our new edifice." In 1899, Forbes' daughter recounted the genesis of this pocket edition: "With the view of placing the Proclamation of Emancipation in the hands of the negroes themselves, one and half inches square, put into packages of fifty each, and distributed among the Northern soldiers at the front, who scattered them about among the blacks, while on the march" (Sara Forbes Hughes, 348-49). In very good condition with a small tear to the front panel. An exceptional example of this scarce and significant piece of Americana. Abraham Lincoln issued the The Emancipation Proclamation, or Proclamation 95, on January 1st, 1865. The executive order changed the federal legal status of more than 3.5 million enslaved African Americans from slave to free and made the abolition of slavery an explicit goal of the Union war effort.

Darley, Felix Octavius Carr (artist) and James Fenimore Cooper (author)
James G. Gregory, NY, 1862. This book is a collection of 64 engravings by F.O.C. Darley, commissioned by the publishers as illustrations for the works of James Fenimore Cooper. Each illustration is accompanied by an explanatory excerpt from Cooper's writing. Illustrations are on thick paper proceeded by a blank page. The interior is very clean other than the imprint of leaves on three blank pages where someone had pressed leaves. This is an oversize leather bound book with marbled endpapers. The name "Frances Amelia Hunter" and "June 5th 1866" are engraved in gilt on the cover. All edges are gilt as is the title in one of the five raised bands on the spine. Rubbing around edges of cover and along spine. Overall, the book is in very good condition other than an approximately 3 inch crack along the bottom of the joint on the back cover, but it is not affecting the tightness of the pages. Top of the front spine also has suggestion of dryness that could lead to a crack. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

[Women's Activism] Female Missionary Society of North Iowa
Iowa: 1844-1862. Manuscript ledger of an activist group operating out of Iowa in the years leading up to the American Women's Movement. Comprised of 23 handwritten pages in varying inks, pencils and hands, and including several illustrations and notes that appear to be from a young child. Measures 6.5 x 7.5 inches in original brown boards with ink title to front. Some paper loss to lower edges of first two pages, causing some loss to text. Dated 1844 on the front board and 1862 on later pages, this appears to be from one of the earliest women's societies in the state. The period in which this ledger was created was a time of important cultural change, allowing for women to create space for their own social activism. For those in the Methodist Church, movements related to equality -- whether abolition, women's suffrage, or class gaps -- had been woven into the very fabric of their identities. Created initially in 1844, four years before Seneca Falls initiated the women's movement, it runs to 1862, three years before the abolition of slavery. And Iowa's role as a pioneering region central to both movements makes it a sensible cradle for the group's formation. The name of the group in the present ledger goes through several iterations over time -- they variously call themselves the Female Missionary Society of North Iowa, the North Iowa Missionary Society for Ladies, and the Female Benevolent Society of the Methodist Episcopal Church of North Iowa -- but they seem to have operated throughout officially as "an Auxiliary to the Missionary Society of the Methodist Episcopal Churc … [Click Below for Full Description]

The Officer's Manual
Richmond: West and Johnson, 1862. Likely the first Confederate imprint. HB. Book bound into boards. Later spine and new endpapers added to the period marbled paper on the boards. A neat book, square and tight. Virtually no foxing./No jacket. An interesting Confederate manual meant to educate its officer corps. There was an obvious love affair with Napoleon and the history of his campaigns by military organizations throughout the world. Hence the many "Zouave" units found on both sides during the Civil War.

BOYLE, Rosalie.
[England: Essex, 1862. Folio album (266 × 210 mm), 74 leaves (plus several blanks at end) bearing 32 watercolours, 40 pencil drawings (heightened in white), most with captions and 5 small lithographs. Contemporary half morocco album. Endpapers renewed. Front free end paper inscribed 'Rosalie Boyle, 1862'. An interesting selection of watercolours, drawings and lithographs by a Victorian woman. Some are typical, if very accomplished, holiday or genre scenes, but there is an interesting scattering of domestic scenes: a women sewing, another at a substantial treadle sewing machine, making mincemeat, crocheting, picking peas, and drawing in an album. Of special interest are 5 original and probably unique lithographs, evidently the work of the same artist, nicely demonstrating the contemporary enthusiasm for amateur lithography among women. Some are trials for letterheads, giving the address: 'The Rookery, George Lane, Parish of Woodford' [Essex]. Among the travel watercolours are some really lovely seaside scenes and a finely observed interior of a railway sleeping compartment on the Geneva-Paris line. .

KING, Harriet Eleanor Hamilton.
1862. 8vo (182 × 117 mm), pp. 53, [1]; some light foxing; sometime interleaved and bound in mid twentieth-century black pebbled roan, smooth spine lettered gilt, rubbed, with 5 leaves of accompanying typescript serving as preface to the ms., stationer’s stamp to top left-hand corner of first ms. leaf (‘Parkins & Gotto London’). Manuscript fair copy of Harriet Hamilton King’s early ‘The Execution of Felice Orsini’, in her own view ‘the most remarkable [poem] I have ever written.’ Aged only 18, Harriet (1840–1920; the daughter of Admiral William Baillie-Hamilton and Lady Harriet Hamilton) ‘began work on her apologia for Felice Orsini, would-be assassin of Napoleon III, which she considered her finest poem; [it was] first printed privately in 1862 by publisher and banker Henry Samuel King, whom she m[arried] in 1863, and subsequently in her Aspromonte and Other Poems, 1869’ (The Feminist Companion to Literature in English). King’s early, and ultimately life-long, interest in Italian history and politics would inform much of her work. Though she dreamed of active service in Italy, she was immediately dispatched to Scotland when her parents learned of her intentions. Around this time she had ‘joined a close-knit group of women, largely feminist in sympathies, who acted as fund-raisers and propagandists for Mazzini and the cause of Italian unification. Key members of this group were: Elizabeth Ashurst and her daughters, Eliza Bardonneau, Matilda Biggs, Caroline Stansfield, and Emilie Venturi; Clementia Taylor; Arethusa Milner Gibson; Emily Shaen; Jessie White Mario; and Catherine … [Click Below for Full Description]

Richmond, VA, 1862. On the front page under "News from the North" is the text of Abraham Lincoln's reply to New York Tribuneeditor Horace Greeley. Greeley's letter urging Lincoln to emancipate all slaves in Union-held territory was known as "The Prayer of Twenty Millions." It was first published on August 20, 1862. Lincoln responded on August 22, declaring that his paramount goal is to save the Union, regardless of its effect on slavery, as well as his personal views that all men should be free.

WHITMAN, WALT
No place, c. 1862. This leaf contains two wonderful Whitman manuscripts: The first is an unpublished manuscript in which Whitman discusses two of the great themes of his writing: the work of strengthening, purifying, and completing oneself and the place of the individual in American democracy. Whitman writes: Or are you one ambitious of great deeds, reforms, politics, an artist, wealth? I do not advise you against such attempts, but all will be valuable only as it comes back strictly to yourself. The greatest achievement a man achieves in strengthening, purifying, completing himself and a woman herself. Your own work your own family, friends, surroundings. Yet in America, in these times, I write public events and reforms are not to be individuality so asserts itself every where, and on such a broad scale, that the reformer or the public man is dwarf d, and every thing comes or is settled by mass impulses and choosings. Whitman notably recognizes the fault in his initial phrasing and points out that the quest for self-perfection is open to women as well: The greatest achievement a man achieves in strengthening, purifying, completing himself and a woman herself. This is a truly representative Whitman manuscript reflecting the poet s celebration of the individual and of the democratic masses in America. As he declared in an 1867 poem in Leaves of Grass, One s-self I sing, a simple separate person, / Yet utter the word Democratic, the word En-Masse. America s pride an unpublished Whitman Civil war poem The second, written on the verso of Or are you ambitious manuscript, is an u … [Click Below for Full Description]

One of the best-known failures in American publishing history, Thoreau printed his first book, A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers, at his own expense after several failed attempts to find a publisher. Despite some good reviews, the first edition (consisting of one thousand copies) did not sell. Thoreau wrote, "For a year or two past, my publisher, falsely so called, has been writing from time to time to ask what disposition should be made of the copies of A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers still on hand, and at last suggesting that he had use for the room they occupied in his cellar. So I had them all sent to me here, and they have arrived today by express, filling the man's wagon-706 copies out of an edition of 1000 which I bought of Munroe four years ago and have ever since been paying for, and have not quite paid for yet.

He hoped to isolate himself from society to gain a more objective understanding of it. Simple living and self-sufficiency were Thoreau's other goals, and the whole project was inspired by transcendentalist philosophy, a central theme of the American Romantic Period. This is the second and final edition of 'Walden' printed during Thoreau's lifetime which included a new title-page dropping the subtitle ("or, Life in the Woods") at Thoreau's request. Thoreau died six weeks after the book was printed. This 1862 second edition of "Walden" is one of 250 copies, making it the rarest of the early editions.
