Robt Horner is hereby relieved from duty at this place on account of the expiration of his contract."During the course of the Civil War, 5,532 doctors served for short terms in military hospitals after battles, typically at the rate of $100 per month for at least three months. Following the Battle of Gettysburg, Camp Letterman became the largest field hospital ever built in North America. By August 1863, all temporary field hospitals were closed, but Camp Letterman remained, with over 3,000 patients. Approximately 1,200 men were initially buried on site at Camp Letterman. It closed in November 1863, when the last remaining patients left.

Horner, Essential to a Nation's Life: The Story of Drs. Charles and Robert Horner of Gettysburg. Gettysburg, PA: Horner Enterprises, 1997. 90 pages, illustrated, telling the story of physician brothers before and after the battle.Robert Horner (1825-1899) attended Pennsylvania College from 1842 to 1845, and graduated from the University of Pennsylvania Medical School in 1849. One of the few local physicians, he and more than 30 other surgeons were posted to Camp Letterman to treat nearly 1,600 patients, roughly half of whom were Confederates. His wife, Mary Ann Horner, served as a nurse. In 1864, he opened a drugstore in Gettysburg, but returned to his medical practice in 1869. He died on July 1, 1899, the 36th anniversary of the first day of the battle.Dr. Henry Janes (1832-1915) was the regimental surgeon of the 3rd Vermont Infantry from June 1861. He was detailed to run two hospitals for the Antietam wounded, then was appointed medical officer of 2nd Division, VI Corps. After the battle of Fredericksburg, he went under flag of truce across enemy lines to treat and repatriate wounded Union soldiers. Janes traveled with VI Corps to the battle of Gettysburg where he treated soldiers of both armies at the sprawling hospital complex named after Dr. Jonathan Letterman, Medical Director of the Army of the Potomac. When the Army left to pursue Lee, Letterman put Janes in charge of all the hospitals at Gettysburg. Faced with caring for more than 20,000 wounded soldiers, Janes constantly strove to improve the medical service, including work on procedures for treating major gunshot wounds besides amputation, saving the lives and limbs of hundreds of soldiers.

      Newburgh, N.Y. [ca. May 1863]. - Broadside, 28 3/4 x 20 1/2 inches. Archivally mounted and matted on acid- free board. Minor loss to top edge, with small remnants of a pasted-over handbill remaining in the top margin but barely touching the top letters, old folds, mild adhesive discoloration at corners, slightly tanned, small vertical closed tear to middle fold at bottom edge. Overall good condition. An exceptionally-rare, and possibly unique surviving example of this large recruiting poster for the Third Regiment in Newburgh, N.Y. Alexander Mann mustered into the Third Regiment, Company "B" as an Ensign in Albany on May 14, 1861, after being recruited from Newburgh or one of several surrounding towns. Less than a year later, Mann was promoted to captain. Third Regiment, Company "B" was the first recruited and first ready for muster in the state of New York during the early months of the Civil War. They fought at Big Bethel, Fort Wagner, Bermuda Hundred, Petersburg, Fort Gilmer, Chapin's Farm, Fort Fisher, and Wilmington, among others, and spent much time protecting Fort Monroe in Virginia during their first enlistment from 1861 to 1863. In May 1863, the unit was re- organized; some current soldiers re- enlisted, and new recruits were mustered. The present broadside emanates from Captain Mann's recruitment efforts for the re- organization and re-enlistment of his regimental company during this time. As compensation to new recruits, Captain Mann is authorized to give a bounty of $250 for a two-year enlistment or $100 for one year. Recruits are invited to visit Captain Mann at 144 Water Street in Newburgh. The Third Regiment would continue to provide valiant service to the Union, although Captain Mann was mustered out at the end of August 1864. A substantial recruitment poster for a proud and active Civil War unit.

        Hong Kong.

      Hong Kong: [c.1863] - Oil on canvas (370 × 260 mm). In later gilt carved wood frame. Very good. Inscribed "Hong Kong" lower left. Fine atmospheric oil of a narrow stepped street in Hong Kong, a version of which was published as plate 116 of the grand portfolio depicting his world travels. Eduard Hildebrandt was born in Danzig in 1817, he studied with the marine artist Wilhelm Krause, and with Eugene Isabey in Paris, winning three medals at the Paris salon in 1843. On his return to Berlin, his talent as a landscape painter attracted the attention of Alexander von Humboldt, who recommended him to the Prussian king, Friedrich Wilhelm IV. As a result he was made Painter to the Royal Court, and was supported in his subsequent extensive, and expensive, travels. Between 1844 and 1851 he travelled throughout the Americas, Europe and the Levant and in 1862-4 his Reise um die Erde (Journey round the World) took him from Trieste through Suez to India, and on to China, Japan, the Pacific and back via California and Central America.

        Notice of a General Mathematical Theory of Political Economy. [read before the Economic Science and Statistics Section of the British Association at Cambridge] in: Report of the Thirty-Second Meeting of the British Association for the Advancement of Science; Held at Cambridge in October 1862.

      London: John Murray, 1863 - Octavo (212 x 130 mm). Recent half calf and marbled boards, spine decorated gilt in compartments, red and black labels. One fore-edge shaved, title page re-hinged and slightly short at fore-edge; a good copy. Ministry of Defence and Admiralty library stamps to title and several other leaves. 4 folding tables and 3 folding plates. First edition of the complete volume of reports of the 32nd annual meeting of the British Association for the Advancement of Science, (over 750 pages long), including - in the section on Statistical Science - Jevons's 2-page Notice of a General Mathematical Theory of Political Economy (pp. 158-9). "Jevons's attempts to make a career as a journalist in London met with little success and he followed up a suggestion made by his cousin, Henry Enfield Roscoe, who was already Professor of Chemistry at Owens College, Manchester, that he should apply for a vacancy there as a general tutor. When Jevons took up this very junior post in 1863 he was quite unknown even in academic circles, but he had already produced two works which were to prove of seminal importance in economics - his 'Brief Account of a General Mathematical Theory of Political Economy', first read before the British Association in 1862, and his outstanding applied research into changes in the value of gold." (R. D. Collison Black in The New Palgrave). "Statistical data in general,and time series in particular, had always a fascination for Jevons. With the instinct of a natural scientist he looked for rhythms and patterns in them, and one quality of time series which seems particularly to have intrigued him from his student days onwards was periodicity. In support of this assertion it may be pointed out that Jevons submitted two papers to section F of the British Association in 1862. One was his 'Brief Account of a General Mathematical Theory of Political Economy', then ignored but now renowned as the first statement of his new ideas in the area of value theory; the other [also present in this volume, pp. 157-158] was entitled 'On the Study of Periodic Commercial Fluctuations'". (ibid.) In a letter to his son Herbert of 14 September 1862, Jevons wrote: "I may also undertake some other articles. I have resolved however at last to let out my theory of Economy, & have accordingly written a short paper entitled 'Notice of a general mathematical theory of Economy' which will I hope be read at the Brit. Assoc. meeting at the beginning of next month. Although I know pretty well the paper is worth perhaps all the others that will be read there put together, I cannot pretend to say how it will be received, whether it will be read at all, or whether it won't be considered nonsense. Our family have not half enough humbug. One part of our composition with five of humbug would make a first character. If I had even a small percentage of HER'S ways, I should by this time have been soaring up in the regions of fame ease & fortune, instead of labouring away in obscurity & without a half penny of profit."

        Almanack for 1863. Drawn on Stone and Printed at Lavars's Lithographic Establishment

      Lavars's, Bristol 1863 - An almanac for 1863, but more importantly a handsome advertisement for this printing establishment located at Broad St. Hall, Bristol, UK. The elaborate border of medallions and views is printed in gold, red, green & blue. The corner views are of bell ringers "Ringing in the New Year"' ;"the Waits"; "Mouth of the Avon" (river at Bristol); "Autumn Scene at Frenchay". Within other medallions surrounding the margins are the crests of the Mayor, Sheriff, MPs, Society of Merchants, etc of Bristol. In self-promotion, they state they undertake "Every Description of Lithography from the Plainest to the most elaborate at Prices Defying Competition" and "The Most Complete Lithographic Establishment in the West of England, Ordnance Map Depot". 12 1/2 X 15 1/2", on stiff paper. It is unclear whether this is die-cut to create a fancy border or trimmed at a later date.

        The Horses of the Sahara, and the Manners of the Desert.

      London: Wm. H. Allen & Co.,, 1863. With commentaries by the Emir Abd-El-Kader. Translated from the French by James Hutton. Octavo. Original green morocco-grain cloth, gilt lettered spine, large pictorial gilt block on front cover, brown coated endpapers, advertisements printed to pastedowns, top and fore edges untrimmed. Two contemporary ownership inscriptions to front pastedown. Lightly rubbed, a few small pale markings to sides, corners bumped, contents toned, foxing to free endpapers and terminal blanks, mild spotting to title. A very good copy. First edition in English of this scarce classic work on Arab equitation, "one of the earliest exhaustive studies of the Arabian and Barb breeds" (editor's preface to the 1968 edition); it is particularly uncommon in the original cloth. Eugène Daumas (1803–1871) was posted to Algeria in 1835, and from 1837 to 1839 was consul at Mascara, during which time he won the respect of Abd El-Kader, the leader of the native resistance to the French invasion, who after his surrender in 1847 was taken to France and lived in gilded captivity. Daumas was widely recognised as the French Army's leading expert on Arab culture, and on his return to France in 1850 was made director of Algerian affairs in the Ministry of War. The original French edition appeared in 1851 as Les Chevaux du Sahara et les mœurs du désert.

      Madrid, Imprenta y Librería de D.E. Aguado, 1863. - 8°, contemporary quarter calf, some wear. Very fine. Inscribed on the half-title by the author (see below). 223, (1) pp., 1 folding plan, tables in text. *** Second edition, augmented, of a work that was first printed in the same year by the Imprenta Nacional of Madrid. Two later editions are listed in Palau, as well as a Portuguese translation by Dr. Venancio Deslandes (38407). Caballero discusses the problems of the rural population in Spain, including insufficient water, poor roads, communal property, scarcity of capital, lack of schools and churches and the fact that the land has been divided into parcels too small for subsistence; then he sets forth his solutions, including (pp. 209-21) a law that he believes would alleviate the situation.This is the copy presented by the author to the translator of the Portuguese edition, bearing the author's inscription to him on the half-title: "Al Illm.

Original green morocco-grain cloth, gilt lettered spine, large pictorial gilt block on front cover, brown coated endpapers, advertisements printed to pastedowns, top and fore edges untrimmed. Two contemporary ownership inscriptions to front pastedown. Lightly rubbed, a few small pale markings to sides, corners bumped, contents toned, foxing to free endpapers and terminal blanks, mild spotting to title. A very good copy. First edition in English of this scarce classic work on Arab equitation, "one of the earliest exhaustive studies of the Arabian and Barb breeds" (editor's preface to the 1968 edition); it is particularly uncommon in the original cloth. Eugène Daumas (1803–1871) was posted to Algeria in 1835, and from 1837 to 1839 was consul at Mascara, during which time he won the respect of Abd El-Kader, the leader of the native resistance to the French invasion, who after his surrender in 1847 was taken to France and lived in gilded captivity. Daumas was widely recognised as the French Army's leading expert on Arab culture, and on his return to France in 1850 was made director of Algerian affairs in the Ministry of War. The original French edition appeared in 1851 as Les Chevaux du Sahara et les mœurs du désert. Podeschi, Books on the Horse and Horsemanship, 202. [Attributes: First Edition]

        KIT CARSON, 1863

      [N.p., 1863. Pencil drawing on paper, 14 x 10 3/4 inches. Near fine. Signed by the artist at lower right. Inscribed at upper left "Kit Carson. 1863" and at lower left "C. Carson, Late 1 Cavly NM Vols, Bvt Brig General." With a note in an unknown hand taped to the reverse of the mounting explaining the inscription. Framed and glazed. A skillful drawing of Kit Carson executed after a well- known photograph of the American western legend. Christopher "Kit" Carson was a frontiersman and Army officer who figured prominently in the expansion of the American West. Living as a trapper and mountain man, he became familiar with Native American culture and language, marrying an Arapaho and later a Cheyenne woman. He accompanied John Fremont on his expeditions to Utah and California, which led to involvement in the Mexican- American War. In 1863, while commanding the 1st New Mexico Cavalry, he waged a brutal war against the Navajo. He was romanticized in dime novels during his lifetime, but the controversy over his treatment of Native Americans continues to the present day. The artist, E.A. Burbank was known mainly for his portraits of Native Americans, including Geronimo, Red Cloud, and Chief Joseph. Born in Harvard, Illinois, he studied in Chicago and Munich. His uncle, who was President of the Field Museum, commissioned him to produce over 2,000 portraits of Native Americans. He was the only artist to paint a portrait of Geronimo from life. Burbank later settled in San Francisco, where he died after being struck by a cable car at the age of 97. A handsome image of a famous figure of the American West by an artist who spent a sizeable part of his career capturing Western subjects in portrait.

        Civil War

      , var. var. The Alabama Claims is a term given American grievances against Great Britain during and just after the Civil War clustered about this generic phrase, but they filled a broad category. Most Northerners regarded Queen Victoria's proclamation of neutrality, giving the South belligerent rights, as hasty and unfriendly. Confederate cruisers, built or armed by Britons, destroyed Northern shipping, drove insurance rates high, and forced many Northern ships under foreign flags. The Confederates raised large sums of money in Great Britain and outfitted blockade runners there. Early in the war, Secretary of State William H. Seward instructed Minister C. F. Adams to lay the losses caused by the Alabama before the British government, with a demand for redress. In April 1863 British authorities halted the Alexandra when Adams proved it was intended for the Confederacy; in September, they detained two armored rams under construction. One other Confederate ship, the Shenandoah, clearly violated British neutrality laws, but only after refitting at Melbourne. Ultimately, the United States claimed damages totaling $19,021,000. The United States occasionally repeated its claims but met no response until 1868. The Johnson-Clarendon Convention, signed that year, made no mention of the Alabama damages but provided for a settlement of all Anglo-American claims since 1853. Partly because of the unpopularity of the Andrew Johnson administration, the Senate overwhelmingly defeated the convention (13 April 1869). Senator Charles Sumner seized the opportunity to review the whole case against Great Britain. Not only had the Alabama and other cruisers done heavy damage, he declared, but British moral and material support for the South had doubled the war's duration. Sumner set the total U.S. bill at $2.1 billion, a demand that could be met only by the cession of Canada. Hamilton Fish, who became secretary of state in March 1869, took a saner position, announcing that Britain could satisfy the Alabama Claims with a moderate lump sum, an apology, and a revised definition of maritime international law. The impasse between the two nations was brief. The two countries soon formed a joint commission to settle the whole nexus of disputesâ€
