[Abolition and Activism]
Boston: Prentiss & Deland, 1863. First Edition. Near Fine. Original printed wrappers with title to front. Faint foldline down the center, apparent on front wrap and all pages. Spine sound and textblock holding tight. Internally a clean, complete copy of this important activist work reporting on the educational systems being built for the benefit of freedmen in South Carolina, one of the first regions liberated by the Union forces. Last appearing at auction in 1904, this report is scarce both in the trade and at institutions. A commission overseen by women and men with a belief in the importance of educating former enslaved persons both in liberal and practical fields that were previously inaccessible. In its history of the organization and its Port Royal Experiment, the pamphlet explains that the goal in "teaching the rudiments of education ...and organizing industry" was to develop "a self-sustaining and industrious community" of freedmen farming plantation land abandoned by white southerner enslavers during Reconstruction. Within the slim pamphlet are the commission's constitution as well as its officers and committees, which oversaw the hiring and compensation of teachers, development of curricula, and even critical physical needs such as the supplying of clothing. Reports on progress and budgetary usage are also included for each committee. According to this first report, "about three thousand children" had been enrolled in schools and "about two thousand acres were purchased by the freedmen themselves." An important document that acknowledges the deep and long-term … [Click Below for Full Description]

[World War II]
1863. A pair of albums filled with 106 photographs taken during World War II by the Signal Corps of the U.S. Army. Many of the images are marked "not for publication" with stamps or notes on the verso. The photographs are from the China Burma India Theater (CBI) and range from images of surgery on a soldier to extract a bullet to GI's interacting with the indigenous populations and the transport of supplies across the Burma Road. Congress established the U.S. Army Signal Corps on March 3, 1863, and today it is in charge of communications and information systems support for the armed forces. Signal Corps photo teams, carrying what was then state-of-the-art equipment, would go out into combat operations, often by themselves, and cover the events where civilian journalists either wouldn't go, or couldn't go. All of the photographs in these two unmarked albums are printed in black and white with the Signal Corps seal imprinted in the lower right-hand corner. They are all linen backed with identifying numbers in the upper left-hand corner. On the verso, each of the photos contains an official stamp with handwritten notes about the date it was taken. Captions typed on onion skin paper are affixed to the verso; some are loose and six are missing. The albums are both bound in home-made wooden boards with brass hinges and bolts.

Erste Ausgabe der ersten sowie der zweiten, umgearbeiteten Version von Bruchs erstem größerem Werk, 1863 [Originalversion) bzw. wohl 1887, anderen Bibliotheksangabe zufolge 1888 (Version in drei Akten) erschienen. Hier in einer für eine Aufführung verwendeten Exemplar mit ein paar Streichungen sowie lose neu eingefügten Seiten 32a bis 32g in Originalhandschrift [wohl eines Kopisten]. Die Loreley, ursprünglich als Libretto für Mendelssohn gedacht, wurde von Bruch zwischen 1860 und 1863 komponiert. Laut hier auf dem Referenzblatt vermerkten handschriftlichen Annotationen im November und Dezember 1860 komponiert, in 1861 fortgesetzt und im Winter 1862/63 beendigt. Die Genehmigung zur Vertonung von Geibel soll diesen Angaben zufolge am 25. Januar 1862 erhalten worden sein. Die Erstausgabe erschien 1863 bei Lauckart in Breslau und wurde seinerzeit durchaus positiv aufgenommen. Heute ist die Oper jedoch etwas in Vergessenheit geraten, erst 1986 fand die erste britische Aufführung statt. Die Uraufführung der ersten Fassung, noch mit vier Akten, fand bereits am 14.

Very good condition on fine rag paper with some minor foxing.Weighs 30 lbs. ca. 14 kilos.will cost extra for shipping."One of the most ambitious publication ventures of all time and the first French topographical work to rely solely on lithography" (Twyman). According to Beraldi,Voyages pittoresques represented a major achievement in the history of lithography. Indeed, the large number of artists involved has led to the claim that it is among "the greatest of all publications illustrated with lithographs" (Ray I, p.165). "Taylor's intention had been to cover the whole of France in his survey, but in the event he was able to describe only nine provinces. The pace of the edition slowed as the years went by. His time was pre-empted by other work; and there were complaints about the heavy subsidy which the publication required" (Ray I, p.164). By 1837, 10 volumes had been published; the rest appeared over a period of 41 years. Owing to these factors, complete sets of the Voyages pittoresques are extremely rare, and plate totals provided in bibliographical resources are approximations only. .

ARIZONA MINING] WILLING, George M.
[Washington, D.C. (but copied in Philadelphia)], 1863. [6]pp. of manuscript on the rectos only of six folio sheets. With original mailing envelope, Horizontal folds. A major early Arizona promoter. An interesting pair of documents, being contemporary copies of an original manuscript on the potential of mining in Arizona, sent by George M. Willing to Thomas S. Fernon, editor of the United States Railroad and Mining Register. Willing's letter was comprised of two parts, a description of "Dr. G.M. Willing's Discoveries of Gold and Silver Mining in the New Territory of Arizona," and a plan for forming a company to mine in the territory. Having been unsuccessful during the Pike's Peak Gold Rush a few years earlier, George Willing led a party of prospectors to Arizona in the early 1860s. Willing would later become notorious in Arizona history for his role in the frauds of James Reavis, the so-called "Baron of Arizona." Despite the tarnishing of his reputation in Reavis's schemes, Willing did do significant work in searching for gold and silver in Arizona, as is documented by this report. Fernon has attested at the conclusion that the present document is an actual copy of Willing's original report and proposal, made in December, 1863, just a few months after Willing sent Fernon the originals. The first three pages describe the location and qualities of several areas examined in Arizona, including in the San Juan Mountains, the "La Plata District," and along the "Unka Weep River." The areas described are all ravines with nearby rivers, which would facilitate Wiling's hydraulic mini … [Click Below for Full Description]

Bound in red & green swirl morocco leather with marbled board interior, with gilt-tooled compartments on spine and gilt decorations on front and back covers, with original gilt-stamped morocco covers bound into the interior of the books. This is a sound copy, with minimal foxing to original end papers. There is pencil writing and a description of the pair of books taped into thenew endpapers. Reference: Bentley, Blake Books, 1234A. Bentley said it better than we can: "Never has an important literary reputation been posthumously established so effectively, instantaneously, and forcefully. Gilchrist's title, 'Pictor Ignotus,' had not been mere showmanship. Blake had been unknown, and Gilchrist made him sensationally well-known. From 1863 on, Blake took an unchallenged place in literary and artistic history as one of the great figures of the Romantic Movement. Gilchrist's biography is still, in many respects, the best biography of Blake" (pp. 12-13).

MEADOWS TAYLOR, Philip
Edinburgh: William Blackwood and Sons, 1863. First Edition. Three volumes. Octavo. Bound in publisher's brown cloth, with decorative panelling to boards, black to front board and blind to back board, with gilt titles to spine. Corners slightly rubbed, some trivial bumping to spine ends, slightly faded to backstrip. Internally clean except for a little spotting to prelims of volume one. Shows extremely well. Captain Meadows Taylor, later Colonel, was born in Liverpool but left England for India when he was fifteen. He worked as an administrator for the Nazim of Hyderabad rather than for the East India Company, and learned several Indian languages. As a consequence his work as a novelist shows particular sensitivity to the situation of Indians under the colonial system. This scarce Victorian triple-decker is an adventure novel, set in the Indian subcontinent. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Mariënwaard, Vaeshartelt (Maastricht) - Theodore Müller + Lemercier, 1863
1863. Propriétés de Monsr. Pierre Regout, situées dans la commune de Meerssen près de Maestricht", chromolithografie in kleur vervaardigd door Theodore Müller en uitgegeven door Lemercier te Parijs in 1863 (of 1864). Uit het Album dédié à mes enfants et mes amis". Afm.: (incl. tekst) 49 x 63 cm. Wie in de tweede helft van de negentiende eeuw een reisje per trein maakte van Maastricht naar Meerssen moet ongeveer de zelfde visuele ervaring van het landschap hebben opgedaan als dominee Jacobus Craandijk in 1883:".de tamelijk hooge spoorwegdijk . vergunt ons aan weerskanten een ruimer uitzigt, dan ons van den rijweg zou te beurt vallen. Onbekend is ons de welige landsdouw niet, maar met genoegen zien we haar rijke afwisseling van heuvels en dalen, van velden en bosschen, zich nog eens voor ons ontrollen, terwijl het stoompaard ons in snelle vaart er doorheen voert. Of wij daardoor de gelegenheid verliezen, Vaeshartelt en de overige bezittingen van den heer Petrus Regout in bijzonderheden te bezigtigen, weten wij niet, maar de eigenaar heeft gezorgd, dat landgenoot en vreemde voldoende op de hoogte kunnen komen van al het fraais, dat de kunst er heeft aangebragt." Dominee Craandijk refereert hier aan het bijzonder mooi uitgegeven ‘Album dédié à mes enfants et mes amis’ dat Petrus Regout had laten illustreren in Parijs met prachtige chromolitho’s, die de reiziger moesten verlokken tot een bezoek aan diens arcadia. Niet minder dan als een feeëriek wandel paradijs waar natuur en architectuur hand in hand gingen, zo heeft hij al zijn bezittingen laten vereeuwigen in dat album.

Ces 25 tirages albuminés, contrecollés sur Chine, légendés et montés sur papier fort, ont ainsi été reliés dans un exemplaire de la première édition in-12 des Misérables par un bibliophile de l'époque. Victor Hugo souhaitait que la première édition des Misérables ne soit pas illustrée. Mais en 1862, devant le succès rencontré dès sa parution, le peintre Gustave Brion eut l'idée de réaliser une illustration indépendante. Il donna ainsi vingt-cinq dessins, entre avril et juillet, qu'il fit reproduire en photographies, s'associant à A. Faucheur & C. Danelle. Vendues à la pièce ou en album, elles furent tirées en trois formats différents, dont les deux plus petits correspondaient à ceux des éditions belges et françaises - comme c'est le cas ici - permettant aux amateurs de les faire relier dans leurs volumes. Cette première illustration créa véritablement les types visuels des personnages qui furent très so … [Click Below for Full Description]

MARIETTE-BEY (AUGUSTE).
Beautiful photographic album made in Cairo, the first illustrated catalogue of the first Egyptian Museum. The photographs by Hippolyte Délié and Émile Béchard show the halls and antiques of the Bulaq Museum, founded in Cairo in 1863 by the great Egyptologist Auguste Mariette (1821-81). The Museum was created by Auguste Mariette, who in 1858, following his appointment as head of the Antiquities Service, moved to the banks of the Nile, in Bulaq, where he assigned four rooms in his residence for exhibitions. Mariette obtained permission to settle in Bulaq in the abandoned offices of the River Company. The period photographs, published in this 'Album du musée de Boulaq', show the low buildings by the river, almost completely devastated during the flood of 1878In the preface dated November 1, 1871, Mariette explains the origins of this monumental album: "Mr. Hippolyte Délié and Mr. Béchard requested permission from the Directorate of the Bulaq Museum to reproduce by photography some of the monuments on display in our galleries. Not only the application [...] was explicitly welcomed, but the Director of the Museum feels he must promote the work of the great photographers from Cairo, opening up for them the cabinets of the Museum and choosing among the objects it contains those that appeared to him most worthy of inclusion in the proposed Album. Mr. Délié and Mr. Béchard have followed, for the classification and arrangement of their proofs, the order adopted in the Notice sommaire, which is for sale at the entrance of the Museum. The three plates showing the interior and exterior … [Click Below for Full Description]

Wyandotte, Kansas: Office of the Contractors of the Union Pacific Railway Company, Eastern Division, 1863. Wyandotte, Kansas: Office of the Contractors of the Union Pacific Railway Company, Eastern Division, 1863. Envelope or Cover. Very good. This letter on the stationery of the Union Pacific Railway Company, Eastern Division is datelined, Wyandotte, Kansas, November 7, 1863, and enclosed in a mailing envelope which bears a circular Wyandotte, Kas Dec 7 postmark and a manuscript "Due 6c" rate mark. In nice shape. A transcript will be provided. Watson reports that since he "wrote the last letter while in the Army of California. I resigned [and] am now engaged in the office of the R.R.

I now get $75 dollars per month and boarded. . .. I am promised the 2nd train as conductor, if I will remain on the road." Although, named similarly to the Union Pacific Railroad, the Union Pacific Railway Company, Eastern Branch was a separate firm. It began in 1855 as the Leavenworth, Pawnee, and Western Railroad, however in 1863, after a consortium of investors were joined by the Pennsylvania Railroad, the line received a charter from Congress to begin a parallel route across Kansas, south of the Central Pacific - Union Pacific tracks that would eventually run from Omaha to Sacramento. When funding ran short, the railroad-by then renamed the Kansas Pacific Railroad-decided to route its tracks north after reaching K … [Click Below for Full Description]

GRANT, ULYSSES S
Vicksburg, MS: np, 1863. First edition. AN HISTORICALLY IMPORTANT LETTER: GRANT DEFINES THE TERMS OF SURRENDER AT VICKSBURG. Background: The climactic fall of the Confederate stronghold of Vicksburg on July 4, 1863, is often regarded as the turning point of the American Civil War, for by destroying the Confederate control of the Mississippi River, the Union Army, led by Ulysses S. Grant, effectively divided the Confederacy in two. As "Sherman told a friend after Vicksburg had fallen, 'they have fought battles and maneuvered fast armies. Here he has achieved a real conclusion." (Donald L. Miller, Vicksburg: Grant's Campaign That Broke the Confederacy). Before the Union could declare victory, however, terms of surrender had to be drawn between General John C. Pemberton, representing the Confederacy, and Grant, representing the North. The main issue at stake was what to do with the approximately 30,000 captured Confederate soldiers. "That evening [July 3], as northern and southern soldiers socialized between the lines, Grant gathered his officers for a war council, one in which he alone would wield ultimate power. The debate hinged on whether the Confederate garrison should be ferried north as prisoners or paroled, sending them home and effectively excluding them from the war. Despite Grant's reservations, his generals convinced him of the wisdom of the parole option; instead of tying up Union soldiers and monopolizing transports to steer more than thirty thousand rebels to northern prisons, Grant's army would immediately be freed up for fresh military adventures. As the years … [Click Below for Full Description]

James, Horace
New York, 1863. [2]pp., on a folded folio sheet. Contemporary manuscript annotation to p.[2]. Unevenly trimmed at upper and lower margins. Old folds, remains of envelope adhering to right margin of p.[1] (no text affected). Very good. A rare printed letter to the public appealing for support for a significant early Reconstruction mission to establish a colony of freedmen in North Carolina, and a "New Social Order in the South." An adamant anti- slavery activist, Horace James (1818-75) was pastor of the Old South Congregational Church in Worcester, Massachusetts and in 1861, joined the 25th Massachusetts Infantry Regiment as chaplain. In 1862, Major General Burnside appointed James officer-in-charge of the "contrabands," or enslaved people who had escaped and reached Union lines, on Roanoke Island, N.C.; and in 1863 Major General Foster appointed him Superintendent of Negro Affairs for the North Carolina District to support the transition to freedom for the former enslaved people there. As Superintendent, James was responsible for taking censuses of black refugees and for finding them employment. He also managed the distribution of food, medicine, and clothing. To achieve this, James organized several camps, or colonies, the first being the Roanoke Island Freedmen's Colony. James notes that as the Union moved south, "Within these lines dwell large numbers of loyal colored people, and but few whites. Eight thousand negroes reside at New-bern, and at the other points named several thousands more....It is among these people that Gen. E.A. Wild is now enlisting his African … [Click Below for Full Description]

PARSONS, Theophilus, Jr.
Boston: William Carter and Brother, 1863. Spine repaired, some light handling wear. 8vo. 36 pages. Original printed wrappers. First edition, an important presentation copy annotated by the author, inscribed to his daughter Emily Elizabeth Parsons on the front wrapper: "Miss E. E. Parsons from her father." Four pages with revisions by Theophilus Parsons, correcting, emending, and adding text, presumably to share advancing thoughts on the subject with his daughter. The most important insertion relates to the Constitution. The printed text reads: "But, it its American sense, and in its purpose and its work, a Constitution had no existence, until it was called into being for our needs, and our good; called into being by the progress of humanity, and for that progress." In manuscript, Parsons changes it to read: "... by the progress of humanity, as the appointed means, by which the fabric of political society for mankind is, in coming ages, to gain new forms, new principles, new utility, and new life."Emily Elizabeth Parsons' (1824-1880) father edited and saw published her Civil War letters. That book, along with her posthumously published memoir, Fearless Purpose: Memoir of Emily Elizabeth Parsons, offered a rare insider's view from the nurse's perspective, describing her work tending to Union soldiers and managing the staff at Benton Barracks Hospital in St. Louis. Her writing provided an important insight into the lives of the women who served in the American Civil War, and ranked besides the published works of Louisa May Alcott, Clara Barton, and Susie Taylor.After the war … [Click Below for Full Description]

Boston: Prentiss & Deland, May 1863. First Edition. Original printed wrappers with title to front. Faint foldline down the center, apparent on front wrap and all pages. Spine sound and textblock holding tight. Internally a clean, complete copy of this important activist work reporting on the educational systems being built for the benefit of freedmen in South Carolina, one of the first regions liberated by the Union forces. Last appearing at auction in 1904, this report is scarce both in the trade and at institutions. A commission overseen by women and men with a belief in the importance of educating former enslaved persons both in liberal and practical fields that were previously inaccessible. In its history of the organization and its Port Royal Experiment, the pamphlet explains that the goal in "teaching the rudiments of education ...and organizing industry" was to develop "a self-sustaining and industrious community" of freedmen farming plantation land abandoned by white southerner enslavers during Reconstruction. Within the slim pamphlet are the commission's constitution as well as its officers and committees, which oversaw the hiring and compensation of teachers, development of curricula, and even critical physical needs such as the supplying of clothing. Reports on progress and budgetary usage are also included for each committee. According to this first report, "about three thousand children" had been enrolled in schools and "about two thousand acres were purchased by the freedmen themselves."
