        AMERICAN FRONTIER LIFE. "THE HUNTER'S STRATAGEM." [and:] AMERICAN FRONTIER LIFE. ON THE WAR-PATH

      New York, 1863. Some very pale mat burn. Near fine. Two of the scarcest Currier and Ives prints, both depicting dramatic scenes of frontier Indian fighting. At the time of the celebrated sale of the collection of Norman James at The Anderson Galleries in 1928, it was noted for each "only a few copies known." The artist of both prints was Arthur Tait, one of the best artists with whom Currier & Ives worked. "Perhaps our greatest sporting artist, Tait would earn a high place in any discussion of art of the period. Among the Currier & Ives group he ranks among the very finest" - Peters. Very rare, and among the most famous and reproduced of prints by the famous lithographers. PETERS, CURRIER & IVES 1512, 1513. GALE, CURRIER & IVES: CATALOGUE RAISONNÉ 171, 172.

        Broadside. Begins: Acta de pronunciamiento de Sensuntepeque. Vivan los derechos del Pueblo. — Muera la tiranía.

      San Salvador: Impr. del Gobierno Tall folio (35 cm; 13.75"). [1] p.. 1863 Editio princeps of the famous "Pronunciamiento de Sensuntepeque," the grass-roots denouncement of the liberal Barrios government. All but one family of the town banded together to draft and sign this document and to send manuscript copies throughout the country to foment a popular revolution and to support the Guatemalan invasion aimed at ousting Barrios. This is a 180-degree turn-around stance from that of 12 November 1859 when the town published a decree fully supporting Barrios. Pres. Carrera of Guatemala, a Conservative with ambitions to control all of Central America, did unseat Barrios and in October of 1863 installed Francisco Dueñas as president. The meeting at which this document was drafted occurred on 27 February 1863, months prior to the Guatemalan invasion, but this first printed version did not appear until after the fall of Barrios and the installation of the Conservative government. It is dated 11 November 1863. A postscript to the "Pronunciamiento" states "esta acta no se pudo dar a luz en su oportunidad por haber sido persequidos, encarcelados y confiscados los firmantes." The names of the signers are present (in type) above the postscript. => Searches of WorldCat, COPAC, CCILA, and Metabase locate no copies. Top margin crumpled and with a few tears and some small loss of paper, but not of text. One horizontal fold.

        Admiral Porter thanks W.W.

      Cairo [Illinois], September 29, 1863. 7.75" x 9.75". "Civil-war date Manuscript Letter Signed ""David D. Porter"" as Rear Admiral, 2 page, 7.75"" x 9.75"", front & verso with blank integral leaf bearing light offset from Porter;'s signature (letter folded before ink dried). To W.W. Carter Esq., Baltimore, Md. Mississippi Squadron, Flag Ship 'Black Hawk,"" Cairo [Illinois], September 29, 1863. Fine condition.In part, ""I have received your communication of August 20, containing the patriotic motto, which has deservedly elicited the beautiful remark from one of the most loyal gentlemen in this Union, Mr. Holt. Though I do not know him personally, I much admire him, and am satisfied that his appreciation of your motto is the best compliment that could be paid. ""There is no doubt left in my mind, but that 'the heel of the old flag-staff will bruise the rattlesnake's head', and cut off the Copperhead's tail, pluck out his fangs and render him harmless. Until our Country however, is united at home, and the Government receives the hearty support of every one who professes to be a Union man, we need never expect to crush the Rattlesnake's head. The part I have taken in this rebellion is dictated by but one feeling, a love of the Union under which this country enjoyed more blessings than any other country under the canopy of heaven - and I would hang every traitor who helped to pull down and dishonor our glorious old flag, and try to bring us to a level of the Mexican states…"" Kentucky-born Joseph Holt practiced law in Mississippi before the Civil War. He served as Buchanan's Postmaster General and as his last Secretary of War, January 18 - March 3, 1861. Anti-slavery and a supporter of the Union, in 1862, Holt was appointed Judge Advocate General of the Union Army.W.W. Carter's Patriotic Motto: ""THE HEEL OF THE OLD FLAG-STAFF SHALL BRUISE THE RATTLESNAKE'S HEAD!""mentioning the endorsement by Holt and Porter and thanks from President LincolnFrom The Rebellion Record: A Diary of American Events edited by Frank Moore (New York: D. Van Nostrand, 1868"" ): ""Document 96: THE HEEL OF THE OLD FLAG-STAFF SHALL BRUISE THE RATTLESNAKE'S HEAD! Across the front of the stand of the National Union Ratification Meeting, held in Baltimore in June, 1864, for the purpose of ratifying the nominations of the candidates for the Presidency and Vice-Presidency of the United States [Lincoln & Johnson], was displayed the above thoroughly national motto, conceived by Mr. W. W. Carter of that city, in March, 1862, and which he afterward had inscribed upon a handsome silken Union flag, which he presented to President Lincoln in the following August, accompanied by a letter requesting:""That the flag might be deposited in the War Department, in order that the motto might be incorporated into the national faith during the present struggle for the supremacy of the Constitution and the Laws, and the perpetuity of our nationality. The motto is national, symbolic, and prophetic. The Heel of the Old Flag-Staff represents the Federal Government; the Rattlesnake's Head represents the Rebellion inaugurated by South Carolina, the symbol of whose sovereignty is that vicious reptile; and the declaration of enmity between the heel and head is prophetic of the absolute power and inflexible determination of the Federal Government to crush out the Rebellion at any and every cost commensurate with the life of the nation.""Let the motto then be inscribed upon the flaunting banners of our advancing armies; let it be spread before the public eye, and thundered into the public ear at all the loyal gatherings of the people; let it stimulate the heart of the nation all over the land, and Anally, let it be the battle-cry for the Union until the flag of our country shall again be planted upon every mountain-top, and its musical flutterings again be borne upon every passing breeze. Yea I until 'O'er all the cities and forts once more, The Stars and Stripes we shall restore.'""""The sentiment, with its accompanying remarks, have been most heartily endorsed by a large number of the Governors of the loyal States, to whom they have been submitted, as - well as by Hon. Edward Everett, Hon. Daniel S. Dickinson, Hon. Joseph Holt, and Commodores Porter, Dahlgren, and others.""President Abraham Lincoln's letter to W.W. Carter: ""Executive Mansion, August 8, 1862. Allow me to thank you very cordially for the elegant and ingenious flag which you have had the kindness to send me, and for the earnest and patriotic letter by which is was accompanied.” "

        Recollections of Tartar Steppes and their Inhabitants.

      London: John Murray,, 1863. Octavo (182 x 115 mm). Contemporary half calf, decorative gilt spine, green morocco label, marbled paper sides, marbled edges. Wood-engraved frontispiece and 4 plates. Ownership inscription on front pastedown of "Miss Williams's, Wasperton House", Warwickshire; bookseller's stamp of Cooke & Son, Warwick, on front free endpaper. Binding lightly rubbed, a touch of foxing in places. An attractive copy. First edition, uncommon. Lucy Atkinson (1817-1893), traveller and writer, accompanied her husband, Thomas Witlam Atkinson, in Siberia, the Kirgiz steppes and eastwards as far as Irkutsk and the Chinese border. Her "vivid account, which is arranged as a series of letters to a friend, shows Lucy Atkinson to have been an indefatigable horsewoman who was held in respect by local people both for her equestrian skills and as a markswoman with pistol and rifle. Her reference to the birth of her son Alatau (named after a nearby mountain and spring), in the absence of a medical attendant, offers a further indication of her unusually independent capabilities. While of intrinsic interest, her book has recently been used to support criticisms of inauthenticity raised against her husband's second volume by revealing inaccuracies in the chronology and detail. In her descriptions of meetings with survivors of the 1825 Decembrist uprising then scattered through Siberia, including M. I. Murav'ev-Apostol, I. D. Yakushkin, P. I. Falenberg, the Volkonsky and Trubetskoy families, the Borisov brothers, and the Betsuzhevs (which her husband could not include owing to the dedication of his second volume to Tsar Alexander II), Lucy Atkinson's work is of interest and importance to historians of the period" (ODNB).

        Panama. Vista géneral tomada del Cerro Ancon por William Leblanc,

      New York Snyder Black & Sturn April 1863 - 70 x 53.5 cm. approx., lithograph by Snyder, Black, and Sturn after William Leblanc, sepia border, captioned below border. Fine lithographic view of Panama, taken from Ancon hill, at 200 metres the highest natural point in Panama, overlooking Panama with various ships at harbour in the bay in the distance. In the fore-ground trees and flora frame the vista, focusing the eye on the bird's-eye view of the city beneath. Ancon Hill was key to the defennce of Panama; for example Captain Morgan had climbed the hill to gain a knowledge of the locqal defences before sacking the city in 1671. It became part of the Panama Canal Zone under U.S. jurisdiction and consequently was left as jungle providing a rich habitat for wildlife up until the present day. 1863 was a significanty date in Panama's history as it brought about contitutional changes under which Panama gained increasing autonomy from its union with Colombia. William LeBlanc owned Ancon Hill, and when the builder of the Suez Canal, De Lesseps, visited Panama in the 1880's with a view to building a canal across the Isthmus, Leblanc warned him that there would not be trees enough there to make crosses to place over the graves of his laborours. This provd to be sadly prophetic as the canal cost thousands of lives in its construction.

        AN ORATION DELIVERED ON THE BATTLEFIELD OF GETTYSBURG, (NOVEMBER 19, 1863,) AT THE CONSECRATION OF THE CEMETERY PREPARED FOR THE INTERMENT OF THE REMAINS OF THOSE WHO FELL IN THE BATTLES OF JULY 1st, 2d, AND 3d, 1863.

      Baker and Godwin, 1863 Baker & Godwin, New York, 1863. 8vo. 48pp. "Four score and seven years ago.": the earliest publication of the Gettysburg Address in book form, preceded only by the exceptionally rare sixteen-page pamphlet, The Gettysburg Solemnities, known in only three copies. Bound in recent hardcover. Several pages attached with recent restoration paper stubs. Lincoln made his speech at the dedication of a cemetery on the Gettysburg battlefield some four months after the pivotal battle that turned the tide of the Civil War in favor of the Union. Lincoln's speech was preceded by an address from Edward Everett, the most famous orator of his day. Everett's speech took some ninety minutes to deliver, and is largely forgotten. Lincoln's speech, delivered in only a few minutes, is immortal. It is a supreme distillation of American values, and of the sacrifices necessary for the survival of liberty and freedom. "The Washington Chronicle of 18-21 November reported extensively on this ceremony and included a verbatim text of 'Edward Everett's Great Oration.' On the fourth day it noted in passing that the President had also made a speech, but gave no details. When it came to the separate publication on 22 November, Everett's 'Oration' was reprinted from the standing type, but Lincoln's speech had to be set up. It was tucked away as a final paragraph on page 16 of the pamphlet [The Gettysburg Solemnities]. It was similarly treated when the meanly produced leaflet was replaced by a 48-page booklet published by Baker and Godwin of New York in the same year" (PMM). Lincoln's address appears on page 40, and parenthetical notes are added indicating "applause" and "long-continued applause." A diagram on page 32 gives the details of the Soldiers' National Cemetery at Gettysburg. Howes E232, "b"; Monaghan 193; Grolier, American 100, 72 (note); Streeter Sale 1747; Sabin 23263; cf.

        Album photographique, circa fin des années 1850 - début 1860 (1863 ?)

      - 38,5 x 30 cm, in-folio à l'italienne en pleine percaline frappée sur le plat supérieur "Ranay". 34 photographies tirées sur papier albuminé. Un reportage photographique réalisé au tournant du XIXe siècle (entre 1855 et 1863 au plus tard) sur le château de Ranay situé sur la commune de Saint-Martin-des-bois, dont la date de restauration permet de situer la date de ces prises de vue. L'album se compose de photographies 9 x 5,5 cm disposées par 4 par page et de grands tirages d'environ 20 x 15 cm en pleine page. Ces photographies représentent l'état du château tel qu'il était avant l'exécution des travaux d'embellissement, et la demeure en cours de restauration. L'observation attentive des photographies indique une véritable mise en scène de chacune d'entre elles : femmes en crinoline, enfants accoudés sur des traverses de bois afin d'éviter de bouger, etc. Deux photos de groupe du personnel du château (femmes de chambres, lavandières, etc.), portrait du propriétaire en pied dans le parc, simulant une action de chasse, en barque sur l'étang, auprès d'une serre, etc. Les temps de pose de chacun de ces clichés sont importants, comme l'indiquent les effets de bouger sur certains détails (traces de mouvements). Cet étonnant travail a été exécuté semble-t-il par un photographe expérimenté, et très soigneusement monté dans un album spécialement conçu à cet effet. Il se dégage de cet ouvrage une grande cohérence : il s'agit en effet d'un reportage photographique sur le château de Ranay, et non d'un recueil classique de photographies de famille. L'originalité du thème : la restauration d'un château mis au goût du temps, semble être un cas unique dans les annales photographiques ; aucun album de ce type n'est en effet recensé dans les collections publiques, ni dans les ventes de ces vingt dernières années. L'originalité de cette démarche tient sans doute à la personnalité du propriétaire des lieux, Arthur-Marie-Pierre Marquis de Quinemont, propriétaire terrien légitimiste rallié au bonapartisme.

        DAILY GAZETTE EXTRA! BY TELEGRAPH OVER THE ERIE RAILWAY TELEGRAPH LINE...SUMTER OURS! IT IS TAKEN BY STORM AFTER THREE DAYS OF FURIOUS BOMBARDMENT!...[caption title]

      [N.p., but possibly Williamsport, Pa, 1863. Minor wear and soiling. One small tear in left margin. Very good plus. A vivid Civil War broadside showing the immediacy of the news from the front, as well as how garbled or false information was disseminated. The headlines further trumpet: "It is occupied by the 144th Pa. Vols. - The 'Old Flag' that Anderson was compelled to lower, floating on the ruins! - Glorious news from Gens. Meade and Butler! - Contemplated movement on Richmond." Despite resumption of a terrific bombardment of Fort Sumter on Oct. 26, the fort did not fall to Federal forces. Thousands of rounds were dropped on the fort, but it stayed in Confederate hands another sixteen months until evacuated on Feb. 13, 1865. It certainly was not occupied by the 144th Pennsylvania Volunteers, and Major Anderson's "Old Flag" did not fly over the fort until two hours before the death of Abraham Lincoln on April 15, 1865. The whole second column of text concerns events in the Western Theater (Georgia, Tennessee, and Alabama), and the progress of the Army of the Potomac in Virginia. "...General Meade was on the march for the city of Richmond, under circumstances which rendered it almost certain that he would capture it. The report of the evacuation of Richmond...is of course all bosh....The details of the great movement now being executed, I am not allowed to telegraph you...the objective point of the combined command is the city of Richmond."

      Massachusetts & North Carolina. 1862-1863. - 175pp., each with 10-15 lines of text. Oblong. Contemporary limp cloth. Minor edgewear. Minor scattered foxing. Very good. The fascinating diary of Union soldier William H. Leach, from his training at Camp Hooker in Massachusetts to his service in North Carolina at the Battles of Kinston and Goldsboro Bridge.

He mentions an accident which occurred as the men prepared to set sail on October 23rd: "We hauled in anchor about 5 o'clock am and started on our journey. I went on deck while they were hoisting up some hay and after they had unhooked it the hooks swung off and took a man in the head. I felt kind of sick but did not heave." Further on he discusses battle conditions. From Dec. 14th at the Battle of Kinston: ".on our march over a muddy road saw some rebel prisoners. heard firing ahead and saw the wounded as they were brought by us. We were drawn up in line of battle. At 1 P.M. firing soon ceased the victory was ours. as we marched through the woods saw many dead bodies both rebel & federal. A meeting house was used for a hospital. We encamped at Kinston that night at 6 o clock. The 10th Com suffered severely in the fight." A few days later they met rebels again at the Battle of Goldsboro Bridge: ".marched towards Goldsboro met rebels they skedaddled. We pressed forward when within a few miles of said city the batteries commenced shelling the rebels in the woods. the shot was whistling over our heads.and the rebels rushed out of the woods. We were drawn up into line again we had the privilige [sic] of firing also the battery and you could see the rebels fall in great numbers. They led on a pond of water and some of us had a swim." Leach describes these definitive battles in great detail as well as adding numerous particulars of daily life in camp and service. A fascinating report of the Union campaign in North Carolina.

        Tara, A Mahratta Tale.

      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]

      [Edo 1863, Naniwa]. Blue covers, stitched, very good, 117. double page b.w. woodcut plates, complete in one volume,. Japanese text, hand printed on Washi paper, 18 x 25.5 cm.,. together with the English translation of London 1914. SCARCE. A CLASSIC WORK BY THE ORTHODOX CONFUCIAN MORALIST An historically important work on women and women's rights in Japan from the 17th century. Documenting the life, habits, learning and essentials for female social life norms as based on traditional rules. * Each page consists of some form of important lesson & learn- ing for women and girls. Also, by using the Hyakunin Isshu as an example, the text explains the proper attitude and conduct for the women of contemporary Japan. * Beautifully printed on hand-made Washi paper and woodcut illustrated and printed by hand. With one or two illustrat- ions on each page. Handsome illustrated text renders this a valuable original and grand record of women's classic learning. * The Tale of Genji [ie: Genji Monogatari] is also illustrated and cited as examples of proper feminine conduct. The author was the celebrated Kaibara [1630-1714] who was a respected & famous moralist and philosopher. In this work, he extols the Confucian virtues and precepts as they apply to women together with other admonitions of the Samurai class. Women along with men were expected to follow Bushido [The Way of the Samurai] in their conduct, which prescribed ritual Seppuku [aka Harakiri or self-embowelment] for breaches of socially accepted norms of conduct. * This work was the most popular of all his many books and was for two centuries considered an essential part of any bride's trousseau. * INCLUDED WITH THIS JAPANESE WORK, IS THE BELOW REFERENCE IN ENGLISH: See Takaishi below. This reference is the first and only Western language translation of ONNA DAIGAKU and the first of its kind to be done in English. The London 1914 edition of the English translation of ONNA DAIGAKU, with title page reading: WOMEN AND WISDOM OF JAPAN. This keen insight covers the following chapter headings, now translated into English for the first time: [cover has small stain else clean]: - GIRL'S INSTRUCTION DEMARKATION BETWEEN THE SEXES "SEVEN REASONS FOR DIVORCE" THE WIFE'S MISCELLANEOUS DUTIES TREATMENT OF SERVANTS THE INFIRMITIES OF WOMAN -Appendices: A. THE JAPANESE REVOLUTION B. THE LEGAL CONDITIONS FOR A DIVORCE. * A wonderful example of girl's learning for the 17-18th centuries. Profusely illustrated, nicely done Japanese text. * ABOUT KAIBARA: Kaibara Ekken or Ekiken, also known as Atsunobu, [1630-1714] was a Japanese Neo-Confucianist philosopher and botanist during the Edo Period of the 16th century of Japan. * Ekken was destined to introduce two great innovations towards the Tokugawa shogunate. One of such was the systematic study of nature based on Neo-Confucianism, which was the beginning of the empirical science in Japan. Ekken's second innovation was to translate the abstruse and forbidding philosophy of Confucianism and Neo-Confucianism into the language of the ordinary Japanese. * Ekken's science was confined to Biology and focused on the "natural law". Ekken became as famous in Japan as people such as Charles Darwin when it came to Science. Ekken was known for his manuals of behavior, such as changing his Confucian ethical system based on the teachings of Chu Hsi into an easy "self-help" manuals, such as Precepts for Children and Greater Learning for Women. The textbook of Neo-Confucianism was then known as The Great Learning. Ekken's main goal in life was to make sure that that book was known throughout Japan. This project more than any other accomplishment incorporated Neo-Confucianism into the very fiber of Japanese culture * REFERENCES: * Carmen Blacker: THE JAPANESE ENLIGHTENMENT: A Study of the Writings of Fukuzawa Yukichi pp. 11, 79-84. * Shingoro Takaishi : WOMEN AND WISDOM OF JAPAN.
