(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. Item #251158 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, … [Click Below for Full Description]

Dunant, J. Henry [Jean Henri]
Genève, Imprimerie Jules-Guillome Fick, 1862, Edizione originale, con dicitura "Ne se vend pas". Antico rinforzo in carta al dorso, insignificanti mancanze ai bordi dei piatti; ottimo esemplare a pieni margini, con firma di antico possessore e data 1892 a p. 115. Il 24 giugno 1859, nel corso della Seconda guerra di indipendenza, si combatté la celebre battaglia di Solferino che vide contrapporsi l’esercito austriaco e quello francese: il fronte dello scontro si estendeva per 15 km, le forze in campo erano imponenti, arrivando a contare più di 100.000 uomini. La battaglia fu tanto caotica quanto cruenta e feroce, e produsse un numero elevatissimo di morti e feriti. Henry Dunant, 31 enne ginevrino di solida educazione calvinista, si trovò ad assistere alla carneficina per caso: interessi personali dovuti ad un precedente insuccesso imprenditoriale lo avevano spinto in Italia a chiedere aiuto direttamente a Napoleone III, in quei giorni impegnato nella campagna militare. La vista di tanta morte e distruzione segnò profondamente Dunant e lo mosse all’azione: nell’immediato, si prodigò, insieme alla popolazione locale, nella cura e assistenza dei feriti, indipendentemente dalla loro uniforme; e poi, tornato in Svizzera, scrisse «Un souvenir de Solferino», pamphlet in cui descriveva non solo la carneficina a cui aveva assistito ,ma anche la disorganizzazione e l’inefficacia dei soccorsi; con un appello finale: quello alla costituzione di una "Sociétés de secours pour les blessés" fondata su "quelque principe international, conventionnel et sacré" (p. 113), a cui aderissero tutti … [Click Below for Full Description]

Captain Frederick Marryat
London: Routledge, Warne and Routledge, 1862. Includes: The Phantom Ship, Mr. Midshipman Easy, Peter Simple, The Naval Officer: or Scenes and Adventures in the Life of Frank Mildmay, The King's Own, Newton Forster, Japhet in Seach of a Father, Percival Keene, The Dog Fiend, The Pacha of Many Tales and The Poacher. Frederick Marryat (1792-1848) was a distinguished naval officer and novelist. While at sea, Marryat wrote and in 1829 published The Naval Officer, or, Scenes and Adventures in the Life of Frank Mildmay. The vivid and lifelike narrative of naval adventure, much of which he had experienced, took the public by storm: the book was a literary and financial success. He had already written The King's Own (published in 1830), and, having settled down to his new profession of literature, he rapidly produced Newton Forster (1832); Peter Simple and Jacob Faithful (both 1834); The Pacha of many Tales (1835); Mr. Midshipman Easy, Japhet in Search of a Father, The Pirate and the Three Cutters (all 1836); Snarleyyow, or, The Dog Fiend (1837); The Phantom Ship (1839); Poor Jack (1840); Joseph Rushbrook, or, The Poacher (1841); Percival Keene (1842); The Privateer's Man (1846); and Valerie (1849). When in need of ready cash he drew cartoons, which were made into etchings by his friend George Cruikshank. When the readiness with which he had poured out novels of sea life at the rate of as many as three a year began to fail, he found a new source of profit in his popular books for children. He drew the material of his stories from his professional experience and knowledge: the terrib … [Click Below for Full Description]

Just ask! 1862 1ed War with the South CIVIL WAR Military Tomes Illustrated Gettysburg MAP The American Civil War played an important role in the expansion and growth of book publication in the United States, as people were craving an understanding of the conflict. Robert Tomes began publishing a subscription book that would give insight to the war, but he believed his work would help end the battles quickly. It didn't. "The War with the South" saw print in dozens of separate parts during the height of the Civil War. This incredible first edition set is an impressive account of the Civil War, written solely from a Northern perspective. According to Nevins, this work is "a wartime publication, this set presents a purely Northern viewpoint; rather heavy on politics." In addition to the fascinating contents, this beautifully bound work features full-page engravings and maps including a highly desirable battle-tactics map of the Battle of Gettysburg!

Delius, Frederick. (1862 - 1934) [Herrmann, Bernard. (1911 - 1975)]Eine Messe des Lebens. Für Soli, Chor und Grosses Orchester. Nach Nietzsches Zarathustra zusammengestellt von F. Cassirer. Berlin: Verlag Harmonie. [1905]. First edition. Klavierauszug mit Deutschen Worten von Otto Singer / Engl. Worte. v. John Bernhoff. Upright folio (27cm x 33cm), 210 pp. Original wrappers printed in red, scattered foxing to covers, spine heavily chipped at extremeties, otherwise in very fine condition. With the 1908 ownership signature on the upper front wrapper of English pianist, Arthur Alexander (1891 - ?) and with the later ownership signature of composer, Bernard Hermann on the title page. Threlfall II/4. Frst edition of "A Mass of Life", one of the composer's greatest musical achievements. Completed in 1905, it was first performed by Sir Thomas Beecham in London in June 1909. "'It would even be possible to consider all 'Zarathustra' as a musical composition', wrote Friedrich Nietzsche, pondering the great riddle-like prose-poem he had finished in 1885. Be that as it may: clearly no sound-board was more attuned to deepen the ring of Nietzsche's metaphors than the musical imagination of Frederick Delius. The suggestive power of its first response to poetic fragments from Zarathustra - The Midnight-Song given at the Delius concert in London in 1899 and later to become the spiritual axis of A Mass of Life - is so compelling that progression to the work in its present dimensions can now be seen to have been inevitable. Zarathustra is Nietzsche's conception of man at his highest as an ind … [Click Below for Full Description]

Charles Darwin
London: Used with wear and tear. 1862, Murray, 1st ed. vi, 365, [1] pp. plus 32- page publisher's advertisements dated December, 1861. Illus., folding plate. Orig. pictorial ribbed cloth. Expertly rebacked with orig. spine laid down. See my other unrestored copy. Freeman 800. Asa Gray is quoted in the Life and Letters of Charles Darwin as saying, "if the orchid-book (with a few trifling omissions) had appeared before the 'Origin' the author would have been canonised rather than anathematised by the natural theologians," and notes that a review in the Literary Churchman found only one fault "that Mr. Darwin's expression of admiration at the contrivances in orchids is too indirect a way of saying, 'O Lord, how mainifold are Thy works.'" This work is concerned with figuring detailing the relationships between sexual structures of orchids and the insects which fertilize them, and attributes their evolution to natural selection. First edition. Cover faded to brown. Rather than describe the condition in detail here, please ask for a full set of photos. We are selling an entire first and early edition collection of Darwin and other Victorian naturalist.
