KINGLAKE, Alexander William.
Edinburgh, London, William Blackwood and Sons, 1863 - 1887.8 volumes. Contemporary half calf, with red and green morocco labels on spines. With folding tinted lithographed view of Sebastopol from the sea, illustration, folding facsimile, and 61 maps and plans (42 folding). Volume I-II 4th edition. - A history of the Crimean War from historian Alexander William Kinglake, (1809-1891) who was an English travel writer and historian. He witnessed the battle of the Alma and the Charge of the Light Brigade, and became well acquainted with the British commander, Lord Raglan. This work was commissioned by Lady Raglan to repair her husband's reputation, and Kinglake was given access to Raglan's papers, and to private and confidential state records. The eight volumes were published between 1863 and 1887. They were extremely successful commercially, but received mixed critical reviews, owing to the bias and prejudice shown by the author, and serious questions were raised about his use of the sources to which he was given exclusive access. However, the breadth of his research, corresponding with or interviewing participants in the war, and use of French, Turkish and Russian sources as well as British, gives lasting value to the work. 'Kinglake's most important work is his 8-volumes history of the Crimean War (1863-87)' (Blackmer p.192). - A very fine set.Bibl. Russica 464.

H.M.M.
[s.i.]: [s.n.], 1863. [20]ff, consisting of a title and 16 leaves (featuring 18 captioned albumen illustrations), with three further terminal blanks. Contemporary half roan, cloth boards, with red morocco lettering-piece to upper board. Worn, with loss to spine, corners. Bookplate of the Oliver Collection to FEP. An apparently unrecorded, almost certainly privately produced volume of humorous albumen illustrations which, with the captions, forms an account - whether fictional or otherwise - of a two-night hill walking expedition to Ingleton in the Yorkshire Dales by a group of three men, including 'KENNEDY, The mover of the expedition', 'W***N. The gentleman who wouldn't move and voted for beer'. The group, as a sub-plot reveals, was to number 4, but owing to a feminine distraction on Loch Lomond, the 'TALL GENTLEMAN FROM THE NORTH' was never to arrive. The group both arrive and depart by train, with three of the images representing the group shortly after arriving at the station, taking 'possession of the waiting-room' to 'perform their morning toilette' and leaving 'Ingletno by the early train'. We can find no reference to this work; neither COPAC nor OCLC locate a single copy. . Oblong folio.

Smart, Edwin (Col. Com'dg)
[NP: 1863]. Narrow folio broadside. 35 x 11 cm. Slight browning and spotting, faint remains of tape [from posting?] along top edge, but very good. The notice states: "Intelligence reached the city last evening that Marmaduke, with four thousand men and artillery, was advancing upon Patterson, where only a few hundred Federals were posted. Subsequent and reliable information reduced the number of the invaders to 1,500 or 2,000 and rendered it certain that they had attacked Patterson and met a vigourous resistance from the troops under Col. Smart." Col. Smart's dispatch, received by Gen. Davidson and reprinted here, dated at Pilot Knob, [Missouri], on April 21st, contains his report outlining the skirmishes. Smart, commanding the Third Missouri State Militia Cavalry at Patterson, Missouri was nearly taken by surprise by a large force of Confederates under the command of Brig. General John S. Marmaduke. Marmaduke intended to encircle the town and capture Union stores there. Smart had been cautioned by Gen. Davidson to be prepared to move at a moment's notice and he put those orders immediately into practice: "The attack began about twelve o'clock, on Reeves's Station road, with a scout I had sent out in that direction. I then sent Major Wood [sic: Richard G. Woodson] on to reinforce, with a battalion. He held them in check, and skirmished them into town. This gave me time to load my trains, and have them ready to move if I had to retreat. Before I left the town I destroyed what stores I could not bring away. Norhing fell into the hands of the enemy." The Union Army had establi … [Click Below for Full Description]

Washington, D.C: U.S. Government Printing Office, 1863. First Edition. Hardcover. Good. A perfectly serviceable reference copy; nothing fancy, but complete and sturdy. Publisher's original cloth covers, a bit scuffed and worn at the tips and extremities, at front joint. Gilt titles on spine are present but rubbed. Thirty-nine full-page, hand-drawn plates, interior clean and tight. Bookplate of a Navy Officer affixed over signature of a Navy Captain is dated; it would appear to be May 16th, 1867. Spine slightly chipped and frayed. Protected by a clear acid-free Mylar dust jacket. Very lightly soiled at endpapers, scattered foxing here and there, else a remarkably clean copy of a scarce title. This volume was prepared under the direction of the United States War Department, and it was explicitly approved by Abraham Lincoln. Eventually, the War Department instructed its use by Union troops who were deploying heavy artillery during the Civil War. Each of the plates show the different kinds of heavy artillery. Handle with a bit of care, but still, a remarkably sturdy volume. The book has extraordinary association value. The previous owner of the book was Emerson H. Liscum, born in July of 1841 and died in July of 1900. Liscum joined the 1st Vermont Infantry in May of 1861 so as to serve in the Union Army during the Civil War. Only a month later, he fought in the Battle of Big Bethel. He fought also in February of 1863 at Gettysburg, where he was severely wounded. His sacrifice and gallantry were duly noted, and he was promoted in August of 1864 to the rank of Captain owing to … [Click Below for Full Description]

Original Hardcover (blindstamped cloth with gilt lettering on spine: „Occult Literature 1878 M.S.S.". Very good condition with only minor signs of wear. Exlibris of Marci H. Huthwaite to front pastedown. Interleaved volume with multiple annotations by the author. Cooke's Curiosities of Occult Literature, interleaved, and extensively annotated by the author. The binding is in worn contemporary brown cloth with blind decorations and brown coated endpapers. Both printed text and interleaved pages show marginal browning. Bibliographically the book is not simple: the title page dates from 1863, but the binding is dated to 1878. In the years in between, and afterwards, the author has filled the interleaved pages with his jottings and annotations, meriting the description ‚M.S.S.' - manuscript - on the spine. The book itself purports to be ‚a plain, unvarnished tale' written in defence of his legal work and pamphleteering on behalf of astrology. In effect the 58 interleaved pages and marginal annotations unpack and amplify the author's opinions as expressed in the printed text. Thus the author appends a two page long explanation of the court case that set in train the book's narrative opposite the title page. It's not possible to do justice to the range and eccentricity of the manuscript interventions but instead to point to some highlights. At one extreme the author expands on the printed text with additional factual informati … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Women's Education] [Commonplace Book] Anne Mary E. Irons
[Canonsburg, PA]: [1841-1863]. Black leather embossed in blind and gilt, with all edges brightly gilt. Measures 9.25 x 7.25". Manuscript commonplace book containing a total of 69 pages, comprised of 45 handwritten pages and 10 original drawings and watercolors bound into the book, and 14 pieces of art inserted to the front. According to the gift inscription on the title page, the book was a given to Anne Mary E. Irons by her brother on July 27, 1841; across its pages, entries run up to 1863 and were contributed by women enrolled or recently graduated from the Washington Female Seminary as well as male students at the nearby Jefferson College. While most entries are geographically linked to Canonsburg, PA, where the institutions were located, some students' signatures reveal that their homes were farther afield, with entries also marked from Ohio, Kentucky, Georgia, and Virginia. The contents of this lovely commonplace book are revealing on a number of levels, as they bring together contributions by men and women at two institutions that would ultimately unite to become Washington & Jefferson College, at a time beginning before the women's movement, and moving all the way through the conclusion of the Civil War. Washington Female Seminary, founded by Presbyterian abolitionists and suffragists in 1836, and Jefferson College, founded by an early Presbyterian community in 1781, were situated near each other in the Western Pennsylvania town of Canonsburg. Both were committed to providing students with rigorous educations, albeit in different fields. Washington "was credited to b … [Click Below for Full Description]

ABRAHAM LINCOLN
1863. This commission, signed by President Abraham Lincoln, promotes 2nd Lieutenant Henry B. Bristol of the 5th United States Infantry to the rank of captain, effective June 1, 1862. ABRAHAM LINCOLN.Partially Printed Document Signed, Commission of Henry B. Bristol as Captain in the 5th United States Infantry, June 8, 1863. 1 p., 14 x 18 in.Bristol spent most of his two-decade career with the U.S. Army in the frontier West. At the beginning of the Civil War, the 5th U.S. Infantry was ordered to assemble at Albuquerque for transfer east, but the department commander persuaded authorities in Washington to leave the regiment on the frontier. Portions of the 5th U.S. Infantry played a pivotal role in thwarting Confederate General Henry H. Sibley's attempt to capture the gold mines of Colorado for the Confederacy and isolate California, from which he hoped to create a supply route that would bypass the Union blockade of Atlantic and Gulf ports. Although Confederates gained an early success at the Battle of Valverde on February 21, 1862, and captured Albuquerque and Sante Fe, they were repulsed at the Battle of Glorieta Pass on March 28, 1862. The 5th U.S. Infantry remained in New Mexico for the remainder of the war, alert for another Confederate incursion that never came. Although John F. Reynolds and later Daniel Butterfield became colonels of the 5th U.S. Infantry officially, they were engaged in service with the Army of the Potomac and did not join the regiment during the war, leaving it in the command of junior officers like Bristol.In 1862, 2nd lieutenant … [Click Below for Full Description]
