Faithfull, Emily
Three pages. 1863. Written on gray laid paper, with embossed lion seal. Written by Emily Faithfull to her cousin, also named Emily, with the fascinating plan to market and advertise her work by sending out large numbers of just the title pages. "83A Farringdon St. E.C., Feb 12th /63. Dear Emily, I will send the parcel to you at Norwood, but I shall detain it...." "in order to send you 500 title pages with a first sentence to the Reader..." "...if you will send this widely it will be a good thing & you might at once send them to the Clergy on the list you have obtained..." "...if you will keep an acct. of stamps they may charged against the acct. of the book. I am quite satisfied with the sale of it; it is going on very steadily at any rate. I thought you wld like to see what "the Reader" said, but it does alter my my opinion of the book..." "and if we send the title page out, we are sure of orders.." She closes with another half page of pleasantries and arrangements for meeting. Signed, "In haste yr affect Cousin, Em. F. What news of James' daughter?" The book in discussion is most probably, "A Welcome: Original Contributions in Poetry and Prose, which was published by her Victoria Press, in 1863. Very good. A most interesting and certainly scarce, lengthy Emily Faithfull ALS, whose letters are seldom seen in the marketplace. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

David Barnes
Anniroc Rare Books ________ The Draft Riots in New York, July, 1863. The Metropolitan Police, Their Services during the Riot Week. Their Honorable Record.[Inscribed] David Barnes New York, 1863 First edition of the key contemporary account of the largest riot in American history - presentation copy from the Superintendent of the New York City Police, John A. Kennedy. The 59-year old superintendent was savagely beaten and stabbed by a mob at the city's draft office. Stylishly bound without the rear wrapper by the excellent turn of the century New York bindery, Bradstreet's, in three quarter morocco and marbled boards. Elaborately gilt tooled spine, top edge gilt. Joints and corners lightly rubbed. Top edge slightly trimmed, front wrapper margins lightly rubbed, one small spot on title page, fore-edge, and a few trivial sporadic ones, otherwise remarkably clean and crisp pages throughout - Fine. Published just 2 months after the events of madness, the volume is drawn from police reports, New York Times articles, and eyewitness testimony. Utterly scarce - I've seen just a couple in the trade and two in sales records during the last 100 years - none with any provenance, let alone one of this magnitude. With the passage of draft laws, the bubbling cauldron of economic and racial animus overflowed. 'On the morning of Monday, July 13, 1863, thousands of white workers in Manhattan erupted in what's still the deadliest rioting in American history. Mobs rampaged through most of the week in an orgy of savage murder, arson and looting. They hung black men from lampposts and dragged the … [Click Below for Full Description]

Covers pontoons, sieges, sapping, mining, batteries. Many illustrations, no foldouts. SIGNED by Charles N. Kent in 1863, may be a soldier.

Gautier Théophile
Revue Nationale et étrangère, 1863. Gautier Théophile. LE CAPITAINE FRACASSE. Edition pré-originale parue dans la Revue Nationale entre le 25 décembre 1861 (tome septième) et juin 1863, en reliure de l'époque (demi veau à coins, tête dorée ; non rogné ; quelques frottements aux plats ; verso du dernier feuillet roussi ; dos légèrement foncé.). Ex-libris d'Eugène Richtenberger (1856-1920). Les livraisons sont toutes reliées ensemble et seul apparaît le texte de Gautier (d'une part celui-ci ne partage jamais de page avec d'autres écrits de la revue, d'autre part, lorsque c'était nécessaire, un papier occultant a été contrecollé entre la fin d'une livraison et le début d'une autre - photo 4). Bel exemplaire dont les trois quarts des feuillets environ sont d'une grande fraîcheur (le dernier quart est un peu jauni ; les pages faisant face aux papiers occultants en portent la trace - photo 4). Le faux-titre et le titre du tome huitième de la revue (1862) ont été conservés et placés au début. Hauteur des feuillets : 25cm. Très intéressante pré-originale, reliée de façon très valorisante pour l'oeuvre, le premier possesseur ayant cherché à lui donner l'allure d'un (beau) livre. Cette parution, la première, est l'aboutissement d'une longue gestation dont le début se situe en 1836 lorsque le catalogue des éditions Renduel annonça le roman dans les prochaines publications. Mais rien ne se produisit et Le Capitaine Fracasse fut encore annoncé à diverses reprises les années suivantes sans pour autant paraître.

[Sinclair Tousey, attributed to]
[New York]. Saturday, July 18, 1863. Broadside. 19 x 12 inches. Previously linen-lined, browning, very faded accession numbers and words ("Copy 2" [indistinct] Room) to verso. Boldly printed; very good. "Stand by the Law!" One of four rare broadsides issued in 1863. This broadside is a dramatic plea for Democratic laboring men to support the Union; to not destroy property during New York City's extraordinary Draft Riots. The workingmen are warned that they "will suffer loss and ruin" and will be "trampled underfoot by ambitious demagogues" with their "homes filled with sorrow" and their "eyes run over with tears" if they continue to riot and wreak havoc. "Most of the whites of the North were reluctant to fight against slavery and for black freedom, and that discontent burst forth in 1863 when the institution of the draft, with a provision that well-off draftees could buy a substitute from among the poor, sparked protests throughout the North, most notably five days of bloody rioting in New York City in July. Government offices were ransacked, homes of the rich were plundered and even destroyed, and African Americans were attacked on the streets, many of them lynched. In response, city Republicans like Sinclair Tousey and others published a series of dramatic broadsides by "A Democratic Workingman" that sought to deflect workers' fury away from the Union and black people and toward slaveholders and their Democratic allies... [LCP, 2008 Annual Report]" The rioters are reminded that the City of New York will shoulder the burden of rebuilding the City, not the Federal govern … [Click Below for Full Description]

Dr. HERMANN KLENCKE - DIE BAULEUTE VON KÖLN (Originalausgabe 1863) Die Bauleute zu Köln oder Deutsche Kunst und Zunft. Roman. 2 Bände in einem Band. Stark erweiterte und umgearbeitete Fassung seines 1840 erschienenen Freimaurer-Roman : Die Freien Steinmetzen, oder Archiektur und Moral (Maurischer Roman) von K.L.Hencke (das ist Pseudonym von: Philipp Friedrich Hermann Klencke) ----- legendärer Steinmetz/Freimaurerromanes von 1840. "Der junge Steinmetz Ulfried wird [ca. 1517] von einem Mönch, der als Jesuit bezeichnet wird (Jesuiten gab es erst seit 1540), angestachelt, seiner Zunft untreu zu werden. Dieses Ziel wird aber nur zum Theil erreicht und schließlich heiratet Ulfried doch des Kölner Meisters Gerhard rosiges Töchterlein. Meister Gerhard ist ein tüchtiger Architekt, dem aber die innere Symbolik abgeht, obgleich er die besonderen Zunftgeheimnisse und den Hüttenbrauch kennt. Um diesen Übelstand zu beseitigen, erscheint ein Schotte Murphy, der zugleich eine Stütze Luther`s ist, bestimmt, der Hüttenform Geist und Speculation einzuhauchen." - Der Roman vertritt die Auffassung, dass etliche Templer nach Schottland geflohen seien, um dort die Ordensgeheimnisse unter dem Deckmantel der Maurerei zu bewahren.

Women's Commonplace] Lucinda A. Rundlett
New Hampshire and Massachusetts, 1863. Enamelled boards painted and inlayed with opal. Backstrip lacking and front board detached, but textblock holding tight. Measuring and 7 x 9.5 inches and comprised of 45 pages in a variety of hands, with entries ranging from 1859-1863 (one stray entry by the book's owner is dated much later in 1914). Contributors largely identify their locations as Exeter, New Hampshire, though several others note Boston or Attleboro in Massachusetts. Born in Exeter in 1837, U.S. Census records show Lucinda living out most of her life in that town, working as a milliner until the 1862 birth of her first daughter and her marriage in 1863 to the Reverend Aura Gerrish. The present compilation is both literary and personal, giving insight into the transmission of poetry and the expression of desire through the exchange of published and original compositions. The book begins when Lucinda is 22 and unmarried, supporting herself in trade. Several early entries show young men vying for her affection, writing dedicatory verses about her beauty. N.F. Carter, for example, writes original "Lines Dedicatory to Miss L.R." that focus on "A thousand forms of morning loveliness" in her, and how "queenly beautiful they sometimes seem, So tinted with the blush of bashful love." A year later, R. P. Woodman regrets that he is "not possessed of a poet's lyre to stir the deep emotions," and so instead he quotes from Micah 6:8. By 1862, Aura Gerrish, the man who will become father to her children and her husband, leaves his own mark -- this decidedly more spiritual in tone, w … [Click Below for Full Description]

Wheeling: Daily Press | A. S .Trowbridge | John F. M'Dermot, 1863. Five Wheeling imprints during the Civil War, from the General Assembly, Senate, and House of Delegates of the State of Virginia, now West Virginia, all from 1862. After the secession of the Southern states, (including Virginia) Wheeling -- then in the western part of Virginia -- was the center for the meetings that led to the formation of the unionist Reorganized Government of Virginia, and then to the formation of the new state of West Virginia. Wheeling was the first capital of both.~~This gathering of acts from the critical years 1861 & 1862 consists of acts regarding such as these: acts organizing the militia; informing the Secretary of the Treasury that no direct tax can be paid until "the armed forces of the so-called Confederate States [are] driven from our soil"; commending the officers, non-commissioned officers, and privates of the First Regiment Virginia Infantry, in the United States service, for their gallantry in the late battle of Winchester; noting that 7th (Union) Virginia Volunteer Infantry ... [has] done much hard service ... and took a very active part in the battles of Antietam and Fredericksburg, Va. ... that the President of the United States be requested to transfer said regiment to Western Virginia service; and in the Dec. 1862; making an appropriation to the proposed new State of West Virginia when the same shall become one of the United States.~~The five imprints are:~~Acts of the General Assembly, Passed at the Regular Session, Held December Second, 1861, at the City of Wheelin … [Click Below for Full Description]

Gorgas, Josiah: Laidley, Theodore T.S.
Charleston, S.C.: Evans & Cogswell, 1863. 546pp. plus thirty-three plates. Publishers' patterned purple cloth with Ordnance Department device embossed on front and rear boards, spine gilt. Spine sunned, with repair to small tear at head of spine, boards lightly edge worn. Contemporary ownership inscription on front pastedown. Light tanning. Very good. An attractive copy of the first edition of the Confederate Army's manual for ordnance officers, prepared by Col. Josiah Gorgas, the logistical genius of the rebel war effort. As stated in the Preface, "This Manual is adapted, with some necessary changes, omissions, and alterations, from the Ordnance Manual of the United States service of 1861, prepared under the immediate direction of Major Laidley. The material of the two services is, of course, nearly identical, differing only in the shape of the new Columbiads and the Rifle Guns, and the addition to our service of the Mountain Rifle of 2.25 inch. It may be added that the labor of Ordnance officers now in the service of the Confederate States, has contributed to this new edition of the United States Manual." Evans & Cogswell were also the printers of the 1861 edition. The extensive text covers all manner of question and issues related to military ordnance, while the nearly three dozen plates show cannons, mounted guns, muskets, small arms, saddles, harnesses, and much more. Theodore T.S. Laidley (1822-86) born in Virginia, was a long-time ordnance officer. After the Mexican-American War, he served as Assistant Ordnance Office at Fort Monroe, Virginia, and was then mad … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Louisiana]: [Shepley, George F.]
New Orleans, 1863. 2pp., printed on a folded quarto sheet. Faintest toning at bottom edge, else fine. An interesting New Orleans imprint encapsulating the tensions between Northern political forces and indigenous conservative political actors during the brief Free State movement in Confederate Louisiana. Here, George F. Shepley, military governor of Louisiana from 1862 to 1864, rebukes Conservative Unionists H.H. Pugh, E. Ames, and J.Q.A. Fellows of the "Executive Central Committee of Louisiana." They had issued what "in effect purports to be a proclamation for an election of members of Congress and officers of the State government." Shepley pronounces such a proclamation void, writing that "no authority for such action has been given by the National Government, or by the military authorities in this State." Further, Shepley demands the organizers of the committee answer a series of questions about the who, what, when, where, and why's of the committee's existence. The Executive Central Committee in Lousiana was a conservative organization that sought to re-institute the original American Constitution in Louisiana (mainly to restore slavery), and lobbied Abraham Lincoln on the matter in the summer of 1863. Of course, Lincoln did not comply, siding with the more radical Free State Committee, and insisting on a new constitutional convention for Louisiana followed by new elections before Congress met in early December. The present document surely came about as a reaction to efforts by the Executive Central Committee to get their way before a new Constitution, based on e … [Click Below for Full Description]
