        Während der Dauer der Michaelis Messe auf dem Roßplatz hat Unterzeichneter die Ehre mit seinen sehr gut dressirten wilden Thieren täglich mehrere Vorstellungen zu geben, ein einer eigens elegant decorirten Arena. Sämmtliche wilde Thiere sind gut dressirt und abgerichtet von einem Kinde von 4 Jahren. (Unterzeichner:) Heinrich Boese.

      Leipzig, Oskar Leiner, ca. 1863.. Plakat auf grünem Papier. Oben mit Holzschnitt (13 x 23,5 cm), das Kind inmitten wilder Tiere darstellend. Blattgr.: 65 x 44 cm. Das angeführte Programm ist durchaus bemerkenswert, wenn auch mit dem heutigen Jugendschutzgesetz nicht vereinbar: Erste Abtheilung: Eine dressirte Riesenschlange. - Ein Paar Nielschweine. Zweite Abtheilung: Das Kind wird sich mit einer schwarzgestreiften Hyäne, welche den geehrten Herrschaften gewiß als das bösartigste, gefräßigste und rachsüchtigste Raubtier bekannt sein wird, zeigen, und die schwierigsten Productionen ausführen. Erstens wird sich dieselbe auf das Kommando des Kindes zu dessen Füßen legen und dasselbe sich oben darauf setzen, dann wird sie auf Verlangen dem Kinde einen Kuß geben und zuletzt das Fleisch aus dem Munde desselben nehmen. - Die Hyäne hört auf den Namen Cäsar. Dritte Abtheilung: Producirt sich das Kind mit einem russischen Rohr-Wolf, welcher sich sehr schwierig zähmen läßt, und wohl selten ein Wolf gezähmt und abgerichtet gesehen wurde. Das Kind kann mit dem Thiere machen, was es will. Es giebt dem Kinde auf Kommando einen Kuß und nimmt das Fleisch mit einer solchen Bescheidenheit aus der Hand, wie das zahmste Hausthier. Vierte Abtheilung: Ein ausgebildetes Rhinoceros oder Maskenschwein, welches mit der schwarzgestreiften Hyäne und dem russischen Rohrwolf in einem Centralkäfig lebt. Zum Schluß: Die berühmte Somnambüle. - Obere Ecke des Blattes mit einigen kleinen Löchlein, sonst tadelloses Exemplar.

General Order No. 1, War Department, Adjutant General's Office, Washington January 2, 1863 (but based on usual practice, more likely printed ca. January 7th.). 3pp. This book of official War Department orders was bound together for Army paymaster Major N.S. Brinton. "All persons held as slaves within said designated States and parts of States are and henceforward shall be free."This edition is possibly the first, and certainly the first separate, printing of the Preliminary Emancipation Proclamation intended for all military commanders in the field. It is also the first widely circulated and obtainable official version of the Emancipation Proclamation. (Eberstadt: Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation # 12.)Bound in a run from January 6 to December 26, 1862, General Orders No 1-216, continually paginated 1-158. Reprinted by order of the War Department, March, 1863.

And followed by:A run from January 1 to June 30, 1863, General Orders 1- 201. General Orders for 1863--with the date 1863 on the title page.

The 1863 orders begin with General Order #1, the final Emancipation Proclamation.With separately printed order relating only to paymasters (identified # 202 identified in pencil at top) bound in at end.The volume also includes aprinting of the Preliminary Emancipation Proclamation bound in on page 118. While the Jan 1, 1863 Emancipation Proclamation is a first edition printed within days of the issuance of the Proclamation, the Preliminary Proclamation here was printed with all the general orders the year after its initial publication.ABRAHAM LINCOLN. General Order N0. 139, US War Department, September 24, 1862. Preliminary Emancipation Proclamation. Signed in type by Lincoln, Secretary of State William H. Seward, and Adjutant General Lorenzo Thomas. Printed Washington DC: Government Printing Office, [March] 1863.

That it is my purpose, upon the next meeting of Congress, to again recommend the adoption of a practical measure tending pecuniary aid to the free acceptance or rejection of all Slave States, so called, the people whereof may not then be in rebellion against the United States, and which States may then have voluntarily adopted, or thereafter may voluntarily adopt, immediate or gradual abolishment of slavery within their respective limits; and that the effort to colonize persons of African descent, with their consent, upon this continent or elsewhere . will be continued . That on the first day of January, in the year. one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, all persons held as slaves within any State or designated part of a State, the people whereof shall then be in rebellion against the United States, shall be then, thenceforward, and forever free ."(G.O. #139)Condition Very Good.

        Portfolio]: Tahiti

      Courret Hermanos, Lima, Peru 1863 - First edition. Quarto. String-tied quarter calf and cloth portfolio titled in gilt ("Tahiti."). The portfolio holds 16 different mounted albumen prints of Tahiti, each image is 4.75" x 6.25" (12 x 16 cm), mounted on a 9.5" x 12.5" (24 x 32 cm) sheet. Some repair to the spine of the cloth portfolio, some small splits in the folds, very good, the images are fine with slight soiling on some of the mats (one image displays some damage but only as copied from the negative). Each print bears a blind stamp on the mat: "Courret Hermanos Fotografos Calle Mercaderes 197 Lima," and is accompanied by an autograph notation in pencil identifying the scene on the verso of the individual mats. Among the earliest photographs of Tahiti preceded only by the limited work of Gustav Viaud who arrived one year before. Courret was a French-born photographer who arrived in Peru in 1860, and formed his own studio with his brother in 1863. He left Lima in September of 1863 to visit Tahiti and the Marquesas Islands. One can follow his itinerary in the contemporary notices that appeared in *Le Messager de Tahiti,* the local newspaper published weekly in Papeete. He left Tahiti in March of 1864 and returned to Lima, worked in his studio as a photographer, and sold the photographs of Tahiti individually and in groups.This collection includes views of the capitol city of Papeete with Europeanized streets, government buildings, single story homes, a small dock with dugout canoes, native huts, native children dressed in white assembled seated in the forecourt of a building (perhaps a church), several views of the harbor with sailing vessels, a waterfall, and street scenes.Rare. Courret's images of Peru and surrounding South American countries appear in the marketplace (nine auction records in the last 14 years, all for single images), but even single images of his Tahitian views are exceptionally uncommon. *OCLC* locates a single similar portfolio (Getty Museum) with only seven prints (under the title *Views of Tahiti*, noting that the title was devised by the cataloger); absent from both Kroepelien, *Tuimata* and O'Reilly and Reitman, *Bibliographie de Tahiti et de la Polynesis Francaise*; Trehin, *Tahiti* (pp. 40 - 55). . A remarkable portfolio of rarely seen images.

        An Arabic-English Lexicon,

      London & Edinburgh: Williams and Norgate,, 1863?-93. derived from the best and the most copious Eastern sources; comprising a very large collection of words and significations omitted in the Kámoos, with supplements to its abridged and defective explanations, ample grammatical and critical comments, and examples in prose and verse … In two books: the first containing all the classical words and significations commonly known to the learned among the Arabs: the second, those that are of rare occurrence and not commonly known. 8 parts in 2 volumes, imperial quarto (320 × 255 mm). Contemporary dark blue half morocco, black pebble-grain cloth sides, spine with raised bands enclosed by double fillet rolls gilt, titles direct to second and third compartments gilt, marbled endpapers and edges. With the half-titles. Dated ownership inscription of William Montgomery Watt to initial blank of each volume in blue ink, several learned annotations in blue ink throughout the text, scholarly manuscript note laid in between pp. 2622-3 vol. II. Extremities rubbed, vol. II inner hinge split but holding, occasional spotting as usual. A very good copy. All first editions, except part four (unspecified contemporary reprint); William Montgomery Watt's copy with his ownership inscription to initial blank of each volume in blue ink, dated July 1956. Scottish historian Watt (1909-2006) "earned wide acclaim as one of Britain's foremost interpreters of Islam in the twentieth century" (ODNB). In 1956 he would have been writing Muhammad at Medina, to follow his 1953 title Muhammad at Mecca, completing his "monumental biography of the Prophet … [which] broke new ground through the sympathetic treatment of its protagonist". Watt was also an authority on Islamic philosophy and theology, especially al-Ghazali: an annotation on p. 233 refers to a variant reading of a word in "Ihya'", that is, al-Ghazali's Ihya' 'ulum al-din (Revival of the Religious Sciences). A manuscript leaf in Arabic and English laid in between pp. 2622-3, in all likelihood Watt's, supplements an entry with information from Ibn Manzur's famous dictionary, Lisan al-'Arab. Lane's Lexicon was the first of the great European dictionaries of Arabic to appear in a vernacular and the first in English (his predecessors, such as Golius and Freytag, having preferred Latin). It therefore answered a growing need of scholars and civil servants connected with the expanding British Empire who wished to study classical Arabic. Still in production at the time of Lane's death in 1876 after 34 years' dedication, it is a truly remarkable work of scholarship that has yet to be surpassed in the realms of lexicography and remains an essential tool to scholars well into the 21st century. It drew heavily on the great Arabic monolingual dictionaries, in particular Firuzabadi's al-Qamus al-Muhit. It was published in eight parts. The first five, as far as the letter 'ayn, came out between 1863 and 1874, and the last three after Lane's death in 1876. The sixth volume, which Lane had all but completed, appeared in 1877. The seventh and the eighth, from the letter qaf on, were published in 1885 and 1893, edited and supplemented by Lane's great-nephew, Stanley Lane-Poole, who pieced together Lane's notes and also provided the biography of the author prefixed to part six. These parts together make up the first book stated in the title: that containing all the classical words "known to the learned among the Arabs". The second book, dedicated to obscurities, was never published. Edward Lane (1801?-1876) became fascinated with Egypt as a young man, and made his first trip there aged 24 in 1825. Like many of his Western contemporaries drawn to the Middle East, he immersed himself fully in his adopted culture, learning Arabic, wearing local dress and mixing primarily with the local people. During this first visit, lasting three years, Lane worked largely in Cairo, making trips to explore nearby Giza, Saqqara and Dahshur, as well as twice travelling up the Nile all the way to the second cataract. Although it was not published until as recently as 2000, his self-illustrated Description of Egypt was composed on his return, and comprised essays on modern and ancient Egypt, as well as geographical studies and accounts of his own travels. A second trip to Egypt in 1833?-5 (including several months spent living in a tomb at Thebes to avoid an outbreak of the plague) resulted in the successful publication of Lane's landmark work An Account of the Manners and Customs of the Modern Egyptians in two volumes. Back in London further projects followed, which included translating the classic Arabic work the Thousand and One Nights (1838?-41) and Selections from the Kur'an (1843).

        Incredible War Date ALS by Jefferson Davis to the wife of Confederate naval hero John Taylor Wood, relating Wood's daring capture of Union gunboats Satellite & Reliance

      Richmond, Virginia, August 25, 1863. 4.75" x 8". "Important War Date Autograph Letter Signed, ""Jeffn. Davis,"" as President of the Confederate States of America, 1 page, 4.75"" x 8"", Richmond, August 25, 1863 to Lola MacKubin Wood (1834-1909), the wife of Confederate Navy hero, John Taylor Wood (1830-1904) describing a letter he had just received from her husband announcing the capture of the Union steamers, the U.S.S. Satellite and the U.S.S. Reliance. Typical mailing folds, left margin slightly rough, else very clean and in fine condition.Davis, writing to his nephew's wife, quotes a letter from her husband reporting on his successful nighttime raid that resulted in the capture of two Union gunboats.""I have just received a note from your husband dated Aug. 23d. on board C. S. Steamer 'Satellite.' He says 'I take great pleasure & pride in reporting to you the capture of the Yankee gunboats Satellite and Reliance, each 2 guns & 40 men with slight loss on our side. Unfortunately they are both short of coal. I am well & grateful for our success.' I hope we shall soon see him & that he will shall be able to give you a fuller account of his adventures. Love to yourself and the little ones."" The same day that Davis forwarded this letter to Wood's wife, John Taylor Wood piloted the Satellite back to the mouth of the Rappahannock and seized the schooner Golden Rod, which was laden with coal, together with two schooners that were filled with cargoes of chain and anchors. After burning the Golden Rod (its draft was too deep for the river), Taylor returned to Port Royal, Virginia with the prizes, which, with the Satellite and Reliance, were all stripped of useful parts and scuttled to prevent capture on August 28, 1863 (Dictionary of American Fighting Ships).John Taylor Wood (1830-1904) , the son of Union General Robert Wood and Anne Taylor, the daughter of President Zachary Taylor, graduated from the United States Naval Academy in 1852. Initially maintaining a neutral stance following the election of Abraham Lincoln in 1860, his sympathies headed South after the Battle of Fort Sumter. On April 21, 1861, he resigned his commission in the U.S. Navy and retired to his Maryland farm. The farming life did not last long, however, as life was becoming too dangerous. Fearing for the safety of his family, the Woods moved south to Richmond, Virginia where his uncle, Jefferson Davis, was now presiding over the Confederate capital (Jefferson Davis' first wife, Sarah Taylor, was Wood's mother's sister).In October 1861, Taylor received a commission as a lieutenant in the Confederate States Navy and became an officer aboard the C.S.S. Virginia (the former U.S.S. Merrimack) and fought against the U.S.S. Monitor at the Battle of Hampton Roads. Wood commanded the rear pivot gun and fired the shot that wounded the Monitor's captain. Appointed an aide-de-camp to President Jefferson Davis, Wood was awarded the rank and pay of a colonel of cavalry, giving him simultaneous commands in both the Confederate Army and Navy, and allowing him to serve as an effective liaison between the services and the government in Richmond. In that capacity, Wood undertook an extensive survey of Confederate coastal defenses. During the summer of 1863, he led a series of successful raids against Union shipping in Chesapeake Bay. In the summer of 1864, Wood commanded the C.S.S. Tallahassee, a raider and blockade runner. During his tenure aboard the Tallahassee, he captured an astounding 33 Union ships during a ten-day period off the coast of New England. By April 1865, the situation looked grim for the Confederacy. Wood was with his uncle on April 2, attending St. Paul's Church in Richmond, when a telegram from Lee arrived informing the president that Petersburg would soon fall and the government must evacuate. That evening, he, Davis, and other members of the Confederate government boarded a train for Danville, Virginia. They continued their flight south, where, on May 10, 1865, near the town of Irwinsville, Georgia, Davis and Wood were both captured by Union forces. Wood soon made his escape, with his uncle's permission, by bribing one of his captors and hiding in a nearby swamp until the Federals and their prisoners left the area. Wood made his way south to Florida and met up with Major General John C. Breckinridge. Acquiring a small boat, Wood, Breckinridge, and several other men first attempted to row east to The Bahamas, but abandoned the plan and decided instead to make their way south toward Cuba. He managed to trade his boat with a crew of Union deserters for their slightly bigger sloop. They reached the north shore of Cuba on June 10. He remained in Cuba for two weeks before heading north to Canada, where his family soon joined him. Reunited, they settled in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and remained there for the rest of their lives. John Taylor Wood died on July 19, 1904. "

        Wanderings in West Africa from Liverpool to Fernando Po. By a F.R.G.S.

      London: Tinsley Brothers, 1863 - 2 volumes octavo, original purple-brown pebble-grained cloth, title gilt to the spine, triple blind panel to the boards. A little rubbed, and whitening at the edges of boards and spine, slightly crumpled head and tail of the spines, lower edge of spine to volume II slightly split, new pale cream surface-paper endpapers, short tear to the map frontispiece, no loss, some light browning, very good. Folding map as frontispiece to volume I, plate of the JuJu House as frontispiece to volume II. First edition. "Newly married and needing employment, Burton approached the Foreign Office for a consular position, hoping for the post at Damascus. Instead, he was offered the consulship at Fernando Po, a small, unhealthy island in the Bight of Biafra on the west African coast. When he accepted the position on 27 March 1861 he requested to retain his commission in the Bombay army, but he was struck from the list, thereby losing not only his half pay but also any prospect of a pension or sale of his commission, an action about which he always complained bitterly. Burton did not permit Isabel to accompany him to Fernando Po, which he described as 'the very abomination of desolation'. He slipped away from the post at every opportunity for excursions on the African mainland or to meet Isabel in the Canaries or England. Although he loathed Fernando Po, he worked continuously at his writing with Wanderings in West Africa and Abeokuta and the Cameroons Mountains both appearing in 1863" (ODNB). Burton originally intended to issue the book anonymously, and a few copies are known with no name on the spine, but most often they are as here, credited to "R. F. Burton F.R.G.S." on the spine and just "a F.R.G.S." on the title page. This pseudonym "may have been a slap at the Royal Geographical society, for Burton was at odds with the organization's leadership at the time over the matter of the Nile's sources. The acerbic dedication was 'to the true friends of Africa - not the "Philanthropist" or to Exeter Hall'" (Casada). Casada 70; Howgego, IV, B97; Penzer, pp. 71-2.

        FREE MILITARY SCHOOL FOR APPLICANTS FOR COMMANDS OF COLORED TROOPS, NO. 1210 CHESTNUT STREET, PHILADELPHIA. ESTABLISHED BY SUPERVISORY COMMITTEE FOR RECRUITING COLORED REGIMENTS. JOHN H. TAGGART, LATE COLONEL 12th REGIMENT PENNSYLVANIA RESERVES, PRECEPTOR

      Philadelphia, 1863. Original black coated paper wrappers, printed in gold. Front wrapper detached but present. Front and rear wrappers heavily chipped. Some edge wear and a few closed foredge tears to the text, which is in otherwise very good condition. The Free Military School for Applicants for the Command of Colored Regiments opened in Philadelphia in 1863 under preceptor John H. Taggart, once a colonel of the 12th Pennsylvania Reserve. This text describes the urgent need for officers to command black troops, lists the qualifications required of the applicants, and offers hints to those interested. By the date of this pamphlet's publication, the school had received more than 1500 applications, of which 560 had been accepted. Officers accepted to the school underwent rigorous training and, once they passed, were sent into the field with a regiment of African-American soldiers. The school was formed and supported by the Philadelphia Supervisory Committee for Recruiting Colored Regiments, chaired by Thomas Webster, with Cadwalader Biddle as Secretary. The Committee also appealed to the local community of free African-Americans to join the ranks of the military by issuing announcements calling for them to fight for the United States, for those still enslaved, and to prove their equality as citizens. The school remained open until late 1864. OCLC locates only two copies, at the Clements Library and at Latrobe University Library in Australia, and we are able to locate another copy at the New York Public Library. Rare.

        TO THE LOYAL PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF MISSOURI [caption title]

      [St. Louis, 1863. Dbd. Very minor soiling and wear. Very good. An apparently unrecorded pro-Union tract issued in St. Louis in the middle of the Civil War. The authors rejoice in the impending collapse of the Confederate presence in Missouri: "The Secessionists of Missouri are manifestly tired of the war, which, in a period of violent and unreasoning passion, they inaugurated against the peace of the State and their own pecuniary and social interests." But the author also views with alarm the activities of a "radical, revolutionary party," so vindictive toward Secessionists that they "urge that the military power shall continue to wage war upon these people, seize and take away their property, and cast them into prison or exile, or shoot or hang them." "Fellow- citizens, if this policy is continued, the war in Missouri will never cease." The pamphlet, signed in type by Samuel T. Glover and seven others, urges Missourians to "annihilate this fanatical faction" at the polls in the September elections. Not in OCLC and possibly the only surviving copy.

        THE COLONIAL HISTORY OF THE CITY OF SAN FRANCISCO: BEING A SYNTHETIC ARGUMENT IN THE DISTRICT COURT OF THE UNITED STATES FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA, FOR FOUR SQUARE LEAGUES OF LAND CLAIMED BY THAT CITY

      San Francisco, 1863. Original printed wrappers. Spine perished, with some repair along inner portion of front wrapper. 19th-century library association bookplate on front free endpaper. Neat repairs along foredge of maps. Else good. In a half morocco box. The scarce first edition of Dwinelle's essential California work, especially desirable in the original printed wrappers, as here. This copy bears an inscription on the front wrapper: "Joseph Bell Esq. Albany, N.Y. with the compliments of G.W. Bell, Supt. 8 Dist. San Francisco." G.W. Bell was a well-regarded assayer and Wells Fargo agent in San Francisco, and the first president of San Francisco's Olympic Club. The wrappers betray the origins of Dwinelle's work as a legal brief for the case of "The City of San Francisco vs. The United States," with John W. Dwinelle being the counsel for the claimant. This extensive brief is also a historical account of the city of San Francisco, and confirmed the city's claim to four leagues of "Pueblo Lands," as defined by the Land Commission Act. Dwinelle's history is a great storehouse of information on the beginnings of San Francisco, with printings of a large number of documents which are now either inaccessible or destroyed. The map of "The Peninsula of San Francisco" is present here in two copies. The Streeter copy of the first edition, also in original printed wrappers and with a presentation inscription from Dwinelle to John Hittell, brought $300.

        [CONFEDERATE MILITARY MANUSCRIPT MAP OF SHELBYVILLE AND TULLAHOMA AND THE SURROUNDING AREA]

      Tullahoma, Tn., 1863. Old fold lines. Backed on slightly later paper. Minor loss at some folds. Light soiling and dampstaining. Good plus. A highly important Confederate manuscript map of the area to the north and east of Shelbyville, Tennessee, located about twenty-five miles south of Murfreesboro, executed in the midst of the Civil War. This map was made a month before the Tullahoma Campaign in late June and early July, in which the Union pushed the Confederacy out of Middle Tennessee, opening the way to the capture of Chattanooga. The map is signed by C. Meister, one of the Confederacy's draughtsman deployed in the field with Braxton Bragg's Army of Tennessee. Bragg headquartered his army at this time in Tullahoma, anticipating any attack would come through Shelbyville. Bragg's troops were spread across a wide front which encompassed most of the territory shown on this map. Union General Rosencrans was headquartered in Murfreesboro, just to the north. The map shows Christiana to the north, Pocahontas and Manchester to the east, and Tullahoma on the southern edge of the surveyed area. Roads have been marked in red, with rivers and streams delineated in blue, and the railroads and towns marked out in black ink. Meister has included key details such as bridges (noted as being in "good order"), mills and other landmarks, and occasionally mileage between points. The map is noted as "No. 32" in the bottom left corner. With the outbreak of the Civil War there was a surge in demand for accurate and up-to-date maps. The Union had field presses and several government surveyors employed in creating maps. The Confederacy, however, was in short supply of everything, including surveyors, proper equipment, and the means to print. As a result, Confederate survey parties were sent into the field to draw maps, which were later traced into multiple copies. Although time consuming, this method was significantly cheaper than any method of printing available to them. A wonderful exemplar of Confederate cartography, showing a key piece of ground covered by the Army of Tennessee, essential to the Tullahoma Campaign.

        RESOURCES OF THE SOUTHERN FIELDS AND FORESTS, MEDICAL, ECONOMICAL AND AGRICULTURAL; BEING ALSO A MEDICAL BOTANY OF THE CONFEDERATE STATES; WITH PRACTICAL INFORMATION ON THE USEFUL PROPERTIES OF THE TREES, PLANTS, AND SHRUBS

      Charleston, S.C., 1863. Original marbled boards, rebacked in paper, paper label. Light scattered foxing and toning, dampstaining to upper outer corner of first forty leaves, not affecting text, faint pencil annotations on verso of rear blank endpaper. Overall very good. Porcher was one of the most prominent medical figures in the antebellum South, and the founder of a hospital for slaves in Charleston in 1855. His early work on medical botany and his reputation as a physician led to his appointment as surgeon-general of the Confederate States. Porcher's book was roundly hailed in its day by Confederate boosters, and the work was commissioned by the surgeon-general of the C.S.A. It remains a thorough and impressive work on the agricultural, botanic, and economic resources of the South. "It is intended as a repertory of scientific and popular knowledge as regards the medicinal, economical, and useful properties of trees, plants, and shrubs found within the limits of the Confederate States" - Sabin.

        THE DAILY CITIZEN. THURSDAY, JULY 2, 1863

      Vicksburg, Ms., 1863. Old folds, closed tear in blank margin of one fold, some spotting. Very good. The newspapers printed on wallpaper in Vicksburg during its siege were widely noted at the time, and the Union troops who took possession of the city on July 4 completed and distributed the last issue standing in type. Numerous facsimile versions were published later. This is the first reproduction issue, probably produced in the North as a commemoration later in 1863. Brigham identifies this as the first reproduction, noting its minor variations from the original, mainly the substitution of the article, "Recent Federal Losses at Vicksburg," in the last column. Brigham details some twenty facsimile versions.

        [AUTOGRAPH DOCUMENT, SIGNED REGARDING TESTIMONY IN THE MURDER CASE OF RICHARD E. WATERHOUSE OF SAN AUGUSTINE, TEXAS]

      [San Augustine, Tx, 1863. Folio sheets. Three horizontal folds, some soiling and staining. Very good. In a blue half morocco and cloth slipcase and chemise, spine gilt. A detailed, closely-written report concerning the testimony of three suspects in the murder of Richard E. Waterhouse in San Augustine, Tx. in 1863. Waterhouse, a Seminole War and Mexican-American War veteran who ascended to the rank of colonel in Tennessee before moving his family to East Texas in 1849, where he opened a general store and speculated in real estate. In 1859, Waterhouse was elected to the Texas State Legislature as the representative from San Augustine County. He was among the wealthier citizens of the town, a fact that seemed to be widely known, and ultimately fatal to the colonel. On the night of Dec. 31, 1863 his store was robbed and Waterhouse was murdered after sustaining a sharp blow to the head from a "hand axe or hatchet." This document is a detailed summation of the events surrounding the robbery and murder of Col. Waterhouse, naming the suspects, Malvin Houston, H.M. Kinsey, and William M. Everett, and consisting of testimony given by the men, as well as Everett's wife, who was implicated in the crime alongside her husband. It was written by an R.F. Slaughter, presumably an official with the Committee of Safety for San Augustine County, before whom the suspects appeared and gave statements which appear in summary form here. The suspects' testimony includes motives for the killing, namely that Waterhouse was thought to have as much as $100,000 in cash in his store. Kinsey is reported to have said that Waterhouse earned the money "by extortion, & swindling the community." Ultimately, the thieves got away with about $15,000, which they divided amongst themselves before being apprehended. Of course, the responsibility for the murder of Waterhouse is unclear from the testimony, as Everett blames Houston, then Houston blames Everett, a classic example of honor among thieves. As far as the public record is concerned, the murder of Waterhouse remains unsolved, though in the closing line of this document, it is written that the Committee of Safety "discharged Kinsey by a very close vote!" The question remains whether Houston or Everett was responsible for the murder of Col. Waterhouse, or if it was in fact Kinsey, as both Houston and Everett initially testified. A fascinating legal document from an ultimately unsolved East Texas murder case.

        KALADLIT OKALLUKTUALLIAIT...[LEGENDS FROM GREENLAND...]

      Noungme [Godthaab, Greenland, 1863. First volume with colored titlepage vignette. Modern three-quarter polished calf and marbled boards, ornate gilt spines, a.e.g. Internally bright and clean. Gilt ownership stamp on front pastedown of each volume. Near fine, and an attractive set. This series of volumes of collected folk tales of Greenland, printed on the first real press to operate there and illustrated with remarkable woodcuts prepared by a native Greenland artist, must rank among the rarest and most extraordinary exotic imprints. Although ephemeral pieces had been printed on a small hand press in Greenland as early as 1793, the first real press was brought there in 1857 by the enthusiastic Danish Crown Inspector for Southern Greenland, Hinrich Rink. Rink began his career as an administrator based at the Moravian mission at Godthaab, on the southwest coast of Greenland. He used the press to produce both official notices and literary works. Rink was determined to collect legends and folk tales of Greenland natives and publish them, an ambition achieved in these four volumes, published over a five-year span. All of the letterpress was printed in a small, unheated workshop next to Rink's house, mostly executed by Lars Møller. Rink collected oral tales from throughout Greenland, although mainly in the southern area he administered. The remarkable oral tradition of the Eskimo, polluted by few outside influences, stretched back to the early Middle Ages. Many of the stories, especially in the first volume, describe the clashes between the Norse and the Eskimo. Rink recognized that some of the tales existed in the realm of pure myth, but that others represented recollections, passed from one generation to the next, of events of many centuries earlier. In the preface to the third volume Rink sets out his theories on the tales, laying the foundation for scholarship on the Greenland Eskimo. All of the text is given in both Greenlandic and Danish. The most amazing aspect of these books are the illustrations. In the first two volumes these were supplied by an Eskimo named Aron of Kangeq, a sealer and walrus hunter who lived at the Moravian mission at the small trading station of Kangeq. Aron was stricken with tuberculosis (which was epidemic in Greenland in that era) and confined to bed. Having heard of his raw artistic talent, Rink supplied him with "paper, coloured pencils, and the necessary tools for woodcutting." Thirty of these, about half of them handcolored, appear in the first two volumes. Aron illustrated the myths. As Oldendow says: "With his fertile imagination Aron drew men in violent motion...he depicts the legendary world of the Greenlanders with insight and ability...He makes us understand the vastness, loneliness, and weirdness of the majestic Greenland landscape and evokes the soul of the country as the ancient Eskimos have known it...." Indeed, Aron created pictures of remarkable power, all the more extraordinary for the circumstances of their production. In the third volume Lars Møller, the printer, supplied a series of illustrations of Greenland life created on the first lithographic press in Greenland. This set is notable for containing two folding maps not regularly issued with the set, but published to be distributed separately. Both were prepared by S. Kleinschmidt and are lithographic maps showing the fjords around Gothaab, with accompanying letterpress text. These maps are extremely rare in their own right. Needless to say, Rink's volumes were produced in small editions, and the attrition of the Greenland climate could not have aided their survival. Today they are of the greatest rarity. An imprint and ethnographic document of stellar importance.

        NEW MAP OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA AND NEVADA TERRITORY...WITH THE PRINCIPAL TOWNS, ROADS, RAILROADS AND TRANSIT ROUTES TO THE SILVER MINING DISTRICTS OF NEVADA TERRITORY...CAREFULLY COMPILED FROM UNITED STATES AND OTHER RELIABLE SURVEYS

      [San Francisco], 1863. Laid down on modern acid-free board. Neatly split along one horizontal fold, with minuscule loss of paper. Short, neat separation along another fold near edges of map. About very good. An important map of California and Nevada Territory by Leander Ransom and A.J. Doolittle, showing routes into Nevada and the recently discovered silver mining regions. Wheat calls it "a Nevada map of first importance." Ransom first published his map of California and Nevada in 1862 (though it bears a copyright date of 1861), and Wheat calls that edition "notably rare." There are three issues of this 1863 edition of the map, one with a copyright of 1862 (Wheat 1070) and another with a copyright of 1863 and the word "A" added before NEW MAP in the title (Wheat 1071). Our issue (as with the Streeter copy) seems to be a variant of Wheat 1071 - copyrighted 1863 but lacking the "A" at the beginning of the title - and it is not listed in Wheat. In the present issue (as with Wheat 1071) the Nevada-Utah border has been more accurately drawn at the 115th meridian (Wheat 1070 puts it at the 116th meridian). There are many other additions in Nevada from the 1862 edition, and from Wheat's number 1070. A great number of details have been added in central Nevada: the important silver mining region of the Reese River District has great detail and lists a number of towns, including Austin, Clifton, and Jacobsville. The Smoky Valley and Big Canyon districts have been added south of the Reese District, and the Mount Hope District has been added to the north. Several stations have been added along the "Overland Stage Road," with intervening distances noted. New mining districts appear in the northwest, as do new trails. In California the counties are named and variously shaded, the six United States Land Districts are shown, main roads are traced, and numerous towns in the California mining districts are located. There is also a table of distances. The presence of "New Mexico" instead of Arizona below the 37th parallel and "Washington Territory" instead of Idaho in the northeast corner indicates that this map was issued fairly early in 1863. The map is drawn on a scale of circa 1:1,750,000, not twenty-four miles to an inch as stated on map, and was lithographed by Louis Nagel of San Francisco, who also lithographed the 1862 edition of Ransom's map. Leander Ransom was born in Connecticut, raised in New York, and came to California in 1851. Wheat notes that "until his death [in 1874] Ransom was intimately connected with the land affairs of California." "A superb map, full of interesting and exotic information in Nevada and California" - Rumsey.

        Diary of A Pedestrian in Cashmere and Thibet

      London: Richard Bentley, 1863. First. Hardcover. VG. 385 pp, ill, some tinted. Description of a long journey undertaken by the soldier. From the plains to Cashmere, a halt in the valley, into little Thibet, Kadak and the Monastery of Hemis, back to the valley and home again. Also a chapter on the religions of Cashmere and Tibet and appendices on the temples of Cashmere, mystic sentences of Thibet and the history of Cashmere. An important early work. Internally better than VG. Externally the original cloth has been expertly relaid on new cloth but at outside gutters the new cloth shows through. Better than it sounds.

        The Gettysburg Address - Front Page News

      1863 - Newspaper, The New York Times, November 20, 1863. (Gettysburg Address on p. 1, col. 3. Reporting on the event starts on p. 1, col. 2. Everett's speech on pp. 2-3.) 8 pp., 15 1/4 x 20 3/4 in. "It is for us, the living, rather to be dedicated here to the refinished work that they have thus so far nobly carried on."A rare first day of publication newspaper, with Lincoln's timeless embodiment of American ideals prominently placed. This printing from November 20, the day after the Address, contains Lincoln's speech on the front page. This original issue also includes Edward Everett's speech and a report on the ceremonies. Partial Transcript"Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth upon this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. (Applause.) Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived, and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We are met to dedicate a portion of it as the final resting place of those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this. But in a larger sense we cannot dedicate, we cannot consecrate, we cannot hallow this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it far above our power to add or detract. (Applause.) The world will little note nor long remember, what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. (Applause.) It is for us, the living, rather to be dedicated here to the refinished work that they have thus so far nobly carried on. (Applause.) It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us, that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they here gave the last full measure of devotion: that we here highly resolve that the dead shall not have died in vain (applause): that the nation shall, under God, have a new birth of freedom, and that governments of the people, by the people, and for the people, shall not perish from the earth. (Long-continuous applause.)"The text is the Associated Press version, delivered by telegraph from the battlefield ceremonies. There are some slight variations between different newspapers and typesetters in terms of punctuation and capitalization, but the original AP version is easily identifiable by the use of the phrase "to the refinished work" instead of the more appropriate "to the unfinished work."Additional differences between this and other versions of the text include:"We are met to dedicate" is "We have come to dedicate" in Lincoln's written copies.the word "poor," heard by some reporters and present in both of Lincoln's drafts, is excluded here: " far above our [poor] power to add or detract" "carried on" is found here and in Lincoln's second draft, but he replaced it with "advanced" in subsequent drafts: "have thus so far [so] nobly [carried on advanced]" For the full historical background of the Gettysburg Address click here.ConditionVery good.

        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

      New York, 1863. Original printed wrappers. Wrappers lightly soiled. Text lightly dampstained. About very good. In a cloth clamshell case, gilt leather label. Rare first appearance in book form of Lincoln's magnificent Gettysburg Address. This edition was preceded only by the exceptionally rare sixteen-page pamphlet, THE GETTYSBURG SOLEMNITIES, known in only three copies. Lincoln made his speech at the dedication of a cemetery on the Gettysburg battlefield some four months after the bloody and pivotal battle that turned the tide of the Civil War in favor of the Union. His speech was preceded by an address by 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.

        [COLLECTION OF FIFTY ENGRAVINGS OF CIVIL WAR UNION GENERALS, COLONELS, COMMODORES, AND OTHER NOTABLES, INCLUDING LINCOLN AND WASHINGTON, PUBLISHED DURING THE WAR]

      New York, 1863. Each stored inside its own paper sleeve and housed together in two contemporary brown leather portfolios, stamped in gilt. Portfolios worn and rubbed. Images in excellent condition. A wonderful contemporary collection of Civil War-related engravings. Featured personalities are mostly Union generals, colonels, commodores, and other officers and figures of note, plus presidents Abraham Lincoln and George Washington. Also includes an engraving of William Gannaway Brownlow, the anti-secessionist Tennessee newspaper editor and later governor of Tennessee immediately after the end of the Civil War. At the time of the publication of this set, Brownlow was a celebrity in the North for his ardent anti-secessionist stance. Due to the portrait poses on which the engravings are based, as well as the stated ranks of the military leaders and the general selection of personalities chosen for the set, it must have been published in late 1862 or 1863. Of particular note is the image of Ulysses S. Grant, who was still so relatively unknown in comparison to some of the other military leaders that the publisher either erred and used the likeness of another man, or could not find a suitable portrait and used a different subject. Also, the portrait of Lincoln is early, as it shows the president without his trademark beard. While we have seen some of these engravings before, we have never seen the full set in the original leather portfolios. All engravings include the facsimile signature of the subject and credits the engraver as J.C. Buttre of New York, with many also crediting the original artist or photographer whose image the engraving is based on (most by Brady, with others by Fredricks, Appleton, German, Silsbee, et al; the Washington image is based on a Stuart painting). This is a very rare wartime- published collection of Union officers. The following is a full list, in alphabetical order: 1) Anderson, Brig. Gen. Robert 2) Baker, Col. Edward 3) Banks, Nathaniel P. 4) Blenker, Maj. Gen. Louis, 5) Brownlow, William G. 6) Buell, Maj. Gen. Don Carlos 7) Burnside, Brig. Gen. Ambrose E. 8) Butler, Maj. Gen. Benjamin F. 9) Carr, Col. Joseph B. 10) Clay, Maj. Gen. Cassius M. 11) Corcoran, Col. Michael 12) Cox, Brig Gen. J. Dolson 13) Curtis, Maj. Gen. Samuel R. 14) Dix, Maj. Gen. John A. 15) Doubleday, Brig. Gen. Abner 16) Du Pont, Com. Samuel F. 17) Ellsworth, Col. Elmer E. 18) Foot, Capt. John 19) Foote, Com. Andrew H. 20) Fremont, Maj. Gen. John C. 21) Grant, Maj. Gen. Ulysses 22) Halleck, Maj. Gen. Henry W. 23) Hawkins, Col. Rush C. 24) Heintzelman, Brig. Gen. Samuel P. 25) Hunter, Maj. Gen. David 26) Lander, Brig. Gen. Frederick W. 27) Lincoln, President Abraham 28) Lyon, Brig. Gen. Nathaniel 29) Mansfield, Brig. Gen. J.K.F. 30) McCall, Brig. Gen. George A. 31) McClellan, Maj. Gen. George B. 32) McDowell, Brig. Gen. Irvin 33) Meagher, Col. Thomas Francis 34) Mitchel, Maj. Gen. O.M. 35) Mulligan, Col. James A. 36) Pope, Maj. Gen. John 37) Rosecrans, Brig. Gen. W.S. 38) Scott, Lieut. Gen. Winfield 39) Shields, Brig. Gen. James 40) Sigel, Maj. Gen. Franz 41) Slemmer, Maj. Adam J. 42) Sprague, Maj. Gen. & Gov. of Rhode Island William 43) Stringham, Com. S.H. 44) Wallace, Maj. Gen. Lewis 45) Wallace, Maj. Gen. W.H.L. 46) Washington, President George 47) Weber, Col. Max 48) Wilkes, Capt. Charles 49) Wilson, Col. Henry 50) Wool, Maj. Gen. John E. There is only one similar item in OCLC, a collection called PORTRAITS OF CIVIL WAR OFFICERS calling for 110 plates (including Lincoln's cabinet and an engraving of his childhood home), also by Buttre, located at the Public Library of Cincinnati & Hamilton County. That collection is bound, and was likely issued as a slightly different item by the publisher than the collection presented here.
