        Army and Departmental Services of Brevet Lieutenant-Colonel and Major P. S. LUMSDEN, Deputy Quarter-Master General, Bengal Staff Corps. A five page folio printed account of Lumsden's Service

      Bengal Staff Corps, Probably Simla 1863 - "A first rate Military Surveyor and Draftsman, a good linguist, and a bold and strong rider." Army and Departmental Services of Brevet Lieutenant-Colonel and Major P. S. LUMSDEN, Deputy Quarter-Master General, Bengal Staff Corps. A five page folio printed account of Lumsden's service, on blue paper, pasted by the blank side of the last page to an old album leaf. Beginning with Lumsden's entry in 1847 into the 9th NI the document covers his service up to the beginning of 1863 and was presumably printed in that year. A remarkable testimony to an already very full career with service in Afghanistan, the Punjab, the North West Frontier, Kashmir, the Mutiny, and China. There are quotes from commanders, references to numerous mentions in despatches, etc. Lumsden served under many of the great commanders of the time: Sir Charles Napier, Sir Colin Campbell, Col Sidney Cotton, Brig-Gen Neville Chamberlain, his brother Harry Lumsden, Sir Herbert Edwardes, Sir Robert Napier, Sir J Hope Grant. All thought very highly of him. This papr would have been produced in a very limited number of copies. Size: Folio [Attributes: First Edition]

        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: Baker & Godwin, 1863.. 48pp. Original printed wrappers. Wrappers lightly soiled. Text lightly dampstained. About very good. In a cloth clamshell case, gilt leather label. Rare first book-form appearance 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. 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. PRINTING AND THE MIND OF MAN 351 (ref). Garry Wills, LINCOLN AT GETTYSBURG, pp.191-204.

        A Serious Fall in the Value of Gold ascertained, and its Social Effects set forth. With two Diagrams

      London: Edward Stanford,, 1863. [Bound after:] TOOKE, Thomas. On the Bank Charter Act of 1844, its principles and operation; with suggestions for an improved administration of the Bank of England. London, Longman et al, 1856. [And:] ARBUTHNOT, G. Sir Robert Peel's Act of 1844, regulating the issue of bank notes, vindicated. London, Longman et al, 1857. Octavo (205 ×127 mm), pp. [2, blank], [4, title and contents leaf], 73, [1]; pp. 21-22 a double-page folding table. Later brown cloth, by Wilson & Son, binders at Cambridge, spine direct lettered gilt, marbled edges. With frontispiece and a folding chart at page 34. Circular library stamp of the British Library of Political Science to each title page. In excellent condition. First edition, presentation copy, of Jevons's first book publication, one of the greatest contributions to the theory of index numbers ever published, the early work which helped establish among his peers the 27-year-old Jevons's reputation as an economist. "Jevons had virtually to invent the concept of a price index for himself, as he also did a means of comparing changes in its value over time, a task which he accomplished with astonishing competence and originality" (Laidler, p. 334). Schumpeter calls it, with reservations, a "splendid work of seminal importance" (p. 1093n), and Fisher regarded the work as proof that Jevons "may perhaps be considered the father of index numbers." In 1860, Jevons had begun to compile a "statistical atlas" (only two diagrams were ever published), during which his attention was drawn to the price rises in the period following the Californian and Australian gold discoveries of 1849. A few years later, on 18 January 1863, Jevons wrote the following to his brother, Herbert: "… I have been led to observe the great rise in prices of nearly all things since 1851, which is obviously due to a fall in the value of gold. This I am now trying to ascertain and prove in a conclusive manner, which will, of course, be a very important and startling fact" (Papers and Correspondence III, 4). The outcome of Jevons's investigations was A Serious Fall in the Value of Gold (1863) ?- a work which established new standards of sophistication for applied economic research and has earned the admiration of every commentator both at the time and since. Jevons covered virtually every aspect and implication of a long-term change in the price level with lucidity and accuracy, his final estimate of a fall in the value of gold between 9 and 15 per cent agreeing closely with the results arrived at by Cairnes by more traditional a priori methods. The work was published on 16 April; by July, only 74 copies had been sold. However, after these initial difficulties, it "quickly gained approval and acceptance which the British Association papers of 1862 had failed to achieve. In this single tract Jevons had, by devising his own means of measuring price changes and sorting out the cyclical factors affecting them, solved one of the great questions of the day. His proof that there had been an important fall in the value of gold 'met with general acceptance', wrote Foxwell in his Introduction to Investigations in Currency and Finance and '… by its singular success placed its author at once in the first rank of living economists'" (Papers and Correspondence I, 39). Keynes writes: "For unceasing fertility and originality of mind applied, with a sure touch and unfailing control of the material, to a mass of statistics, involving immense labours for an unaided individual ploughing his way through with no precedents and labour-saving devices to relieve his task, this pamphlet stands unrivalled in the history of our subject" (Essays in Biography, 2nd edition, p. 271). This copy inscribed "Prof. Waley From the Author", on the initial blank leaf. Jacob Waley (1818-1873) was Professor of Political Economy at University College, London from 1854-66 and Emeritus Professor from then on. He wrote one of the testimonials in support of Jevons's application at Owens College in 1866 and examined him for his (successful) application for a scholarship at UCL.

        HEAD QUARTERS, WHEELER'S CAVALRY CORPS, JUNE 3rd, 1863 GENERAL ORDERS NO 7 [caption title]

      [N.p., likely Tennessee. June 1863].. Broadside, 3 1/2 x 11 inches. Two tiny archival tape remnants at top edge, dampstains, foxing, else very good. A Confederate broadside detailing seven orders from Maj. Gen. Joseph Wheeler, then commander of the Cavalry Corps of the Army of Tennessee. Here, Wheeler instructs his cavalry troops to file accurate reports, questions prisoners closely, check and double- check the accuracy of their intelligence, avoid rumor and speculation, report enemy advances at twenty-minute intervals to ensure "the Commanding general may be frequently re-assured that the dispositions he is making are correct," and for scouts and cavalry in the rear of the enemy to report all information promptly, even information that "may appear to them of little importance." Wheeler reminds his officers that what might seem trivial to them "is frequently of great value to the Commanding General, as the most trifling circumstances, when connected with other knowledge in his possession, very often develops the chief purpose of the enemy." Wheeler concludes by reminding his troops that they are the "eyes and ears of the General" and without their regular and accurate information, the commander's "dispositions must be faulty, and his success by no means certain." The orders are signed in print by Wheeler and his adjutant general D.G. Reed. "Fightin' Joe" Wheeler was probably the most famous Confederate cavalry commander after J.E.B. Stuart and Nathan Bedford Forrest. Wheeler was that rare breed who served in both the Confederate Army and later in the U.S. Army; he fought in the Civil War and the Spanish- American War. His service in the latter conflict began when he was 61 years old. Parris & Willingham record this order as part of a single publication of sixteen orders, and do not list it separately. Rare, with only three copies in OCLC, at Alabama, Duke, and the Boston Athenaeum. PARRISH & WILLINGHAM 993. OCLC 22458071.

        Document

      1863 - Single page, on Commonwealth of Massachusetts Executive Department letterhead. Original letter from Massachusetts Governor John A. Andrew to Senator Charles Sumner, dated 3 December 1863, regarding the unequal pay of African-American soldiers serving in the Fifty-fifth and Fifty-fourth Massachusetts Infantry (made memorable in the award-winning film “Glory”). This letter was owned by the Reverend Samuel Harrison, regiment chaplain; professionally matted and framed. The letter reads: “Hon. Charles Sumner, Sir, I have the honor to transmit to you herewith, Resolves of the General Court of this Commonwealth, passed at its recent special session, `Concerning the increase of pay of the soldiers in the service of the United States,’ and `Concerning persons enlisted in the Naval service of the United States and concerning the Fifty-fourth and Fifty-fifth regiments,’ Massachusetts Volunteers, with the respectful request that the objects they present may receive your cordial support, and that the measures they propose may be early accomplished.” ---- The Fifty-fourth was the first regular army unit of African Americans raised in the North during the Civil War. Massachusetts abolitionist Governor Andrew organized the regiment January and May 1863. Unfortunately, those black soldiers were often cheated out of bounties, issued inferior weapons and insufficient rations, regulated to relentless fatigue duty, and paid unfairly. Because black volunteers were paid as laborers and not as soldiers, Andrew petitioned the Bureau of Colored Troops unsuccessfully. Not satisfied, Andrew went to Washington in September for talks with Lincoln which fell flat. As a stopgap measure, he then asked for and got action from the Massachusetts legislature – Andrew’s historic December 3, 1863, letter to Sumner confirmed the fact that state money had been appropriated to make up the difference in pay for the men of the Fifty-fourth and Fifty-fifth. But both regiments were adamant and declined Andrew’s compromise solution. Refusing to accept any pay until it should be made equal by national legislation to that received by the white troops with whom they served, the black regiments fought and died for some eighteen months without pay.

        [Mont Frumento]

      Paris, Paul Berthier, ca. 1863-1865. Broadsheet (60 x 45 cm), with original mounted albumen silver print (36.5 x 25.8 cm).l Paul Marcellin Berthier (1822-1912) is regarded as one of the foremost French photographers of the 19th century, as well as an accomplished impressionist painter. He is principally known as a landscape and a portrait photographer (of, e.g., the French poet Lamartine), and as a landscape painter. His landscape photos are rare and sought-after, and are, for instance, included in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York. This photograph is of geological importance, showing Monte Frumento on Sicily, which is situated on the flanks of Mount Etna, whose snow-covered top is seen in the background. This photo can be dated as from 1863-1865, as Berthier is known to have photographed the Etna volcano during and after its 1861-1865 eruptions. He did not visit the area after 1865. The 1866 volume of "Le tour du Monde", contains a series of papers by Élisée Reclus on the 1865 Etna eruption, illustrated with engravings after original photos by Berthier. Berthier's blindstamp below the photo, as caption. Some spotting, mainly in the margins.

        Ansicht eines Schweizer Alpentals bei Chamonix. mit einem Dorf und Bergen im Hintergrund, im Vordergrund rastende Wanderer. Orig.-Photo.

      Um 1863.. Albuminabzug. 15,7 x 21,2 cm. Auf Karton mit Tonplatte montiert. Im Unterrand Eindruck: "W. England photg. Views of Switzerland and Savoy. Dedicated by permission to the Alpine Club", sowie Verlegeradresse "F. Mack...Vevey". Im Hintergrund die Bergpartie etwas bleich. Dies aber wohl Nebel oder Dunst und keine Ausbleichung des Abzugs - der Rest der Aufnahme bis zur Mitte mit der Talebene setzt sich gestochen scharf vom beginnenden Hintergrund der ansteigenden Berge ab. Sehr guter Abzug.. Wohl aus einer in der Schweiz erschienenen Serie (oder Mappe). Siehe Gernsheim, Incunabula of British Photographic Literature, Nr. 272 - dieser verzeichnet dort aber nur eine Mappe mit Aufnahmen Englands in kleinerem Format "Panoramic Views of Switzerland, Savoy, and Italy" von 1865, die aber in London erschien. England begann bereits in sehr jungen Jahren vor 1842 seine Photographenlaufbahn als Assistent eines Daguerreotypisten in London und bald darauf wurde er zu einem der Pioniere der Landschaftsphotographie. 1854 trat er der London Stereoscopic Co. bei und war bald bis 1862 deren Chefphotograph. Später verließ er die Stereoscopic Company und gründete sein eigenes Atelier für Photographien und Drucke. Er reiste und photographierte in Frankreich, Irland, der Schweiz und den USA. Als Spezialist für Alpenansichten bekannt, stand er unter dem Patronat des "British Alpine Club", der einige seiner Ansichten, wie auch vorliegende, publizierte. Ab 1886 war er Präsident der London Photographic Society. Großformatige Einzelaufnahmen Englands sind bedeutend seltener als seine relativ häufigen Stereokarten. Zur Biographie siehe auch Matthew Butson, Encyclopedia of Nineteenth-Century Photography, Vol I, S. 488/89.

        [Mont Frumento]

      . Paris, Paul Berthier, ca. 1863-1865. Broadsheet (60 x 45 cm), with original mounted albumen silver print (36.5 x 25.8 cm).l Paul Marcellin Berthier (1822-1912) is regarded as one of the foremost French photographers of the 19th century, as well as an accomplished impressionist painter. He is principally known as a landscape and a portrait photographer (of, e.g., the French poet Lamartine), and as a landscape painter. His landscape photos are rare and sought-after, and are, for instance, included in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York. This photograph is of geological importance, showing Monte Frumento on Sicily, which is situated on the flanks of Mount Etna, whose snow-covered top is seen in the background. This photo can be dated as from 1863-1865, as Berthier is known to have photographed the Etna volcano during and after its 1861-1865 eruptions. He did not visit the area after 1865. The 1866 volume of "Le tour du Monde", contains a series of papers by Elisee Reclus on the 1865 Etna eruption, illustrated with engravings after original photos by Berthier. Berthier's blindstamp below the photo, as caption. Some spotting, mainly in the margins..

        Traite de la Coloration des Pates a Papier

      1863. PIETTE, Louis. Traité de la Coloration des Pates a Papier précédé d'un Aperçu sur l'État actuel de la Fabrication du Papier et contenant un Assortiment d'Échantillons de Papier colorés. xvii, xxxiv, 189 pp. Illustrated with 229 mounted samples of coloured papers. 8vo., 220 x 135 mm, bound in publisher's purple pebbled cloth, spine gilt. Paris: au Bureau du Journal des Fabricants de Papier, 1863. |~||~||~||~| Second, Revised Edition of the seminal treatise on colouring paper pulp by Belgian author Maria Ludwig (Louis) Valentin Piette (1803-1862), this copy with a contemporary family provenance, presented by H. Piette (Magdalena Helena, 1815-64) to the Author's brother, Prosper Piette (1846-1928). Louis Piette began experimenting with papermaking in 1827, after taking over his father's paper factory in Dillingen, Prussia. Until the nineteenth century, paper was mostly made by breaking down rags into pulp; but as fabric supplies dwindled and technology advanced, papermakers tried new methods and materials, like straw - the main subject of Piette's treatise on paper, Die Fabrikation des Papieres aus Stroh und vielen andern Substanzen (1838) - to improve manufacture. A prolific, expert author on paper studies, Piette also published the Traite de la fabrication du papier (1831) at a time when Delalande's L'art de faire le papier was the only available text on the subject; and edited and published the Journal des Fabricants de Papier, a technical journal issued with many paper specimens, from France starting in 1854. For his publications and his advancement in the art of papermaking, Piette received numerous international awards. This book, printed in a limited edition of 250 copies, is also profusely illustrated with 229 paper samples illustrating as many tints, ranging in color from plain to blues, oranges, greens, pinks, reds, and black, each sample with its formula recorded below for easy reference by paper manufacturers. Of these, nos. 154 and 227 are torn in half (227 with the torn part tucked behind), and no. 108 with early ink writing. Spine faded and lightly rubbed, but a remarkable copy complete with all the samples. PROVENANCE: Prosper Piette, with his ink ownership inscription on front pastedown and his label in upper corner of title-page; and a family presentation inscription to him on the half title-page, from H[elena] Piette, with her signature dated 1 January 1864, as above.

        Calling for More Black Troops in the Union Army: Criticizing NY for Turning Away African American Soldiers and Praising a Tennessee Regiment

      Boston, Mass. 1863 - Broadside. New England Loyal Publication Society No. 143. Boston, Mass., December 2, 1863. 1 p., 9 1/2 x 15 in. "These volunteers who were not permitted to volunteer happened to have black skins, and for that reason they were refused. Is it not almost time to have done with this absurd superstition, this fanatical folly?" An important broadside regarding the recruitment of African American soldiers in the Union Army. The first missive discusses the turning away of black men in New York: "The men were young, stout, able-bodied, in every way good material for soldiers. When the rebels in Richmond read that these volunteers were turned away, they will rejoice at the steadiness with which the Governor of New York is trying to help them. These volunteers who were not permitted to volunteer happened to have black skins, and for that reason they were refused. Is it not almost time to have done with this absurd superstition, this fanatical folly? What does Governor Seymour, what do the people of New York gain by refusing to permit colored men to fight for the Union?" A report of a 1,000-man regiment of black soldiers raised in Nashville, Tennessee: "These men look and move as though they felt that on their broad shoulders rested the responsibility of terminating this rebellion."And a letter addressed to President Lincoln urging him to allow blacks in the southwest to join the US army.And a discussion of the great desire of the recently-freed slaves to learn despite a lack of resources "Many just struggling out of slavery, and laboring constantly for a subsistence, pay readily a dollar per month for instruction. The crowds about their school-rooms indicate a large attendance. Intelligent Unionists of Nashville say that the colored schools are better attended and more liberally sustained than the ordinary white schools. But the schools for the poor quondam slaves were not started without opposition. The former rulers of Nashville endeavored to resuscitate the laws against teaching the negroes and to enforce them against these schools, but they did not succeed."Historical BackgroundThe Boston-based New England Loyal Publication Society (and the Loyal Publication Society of New York) was founded in 1863 to bolster public support by disseminating pro-Union news articles and editorials to newspapers around the country. At first, the two groups read newspapers to identify particularly useful articles and editorials and contact the editors to request that additional copies be printed. These items would then be distributed to Union soldiers or to newspapers. As the war progressed, the societies began to write and publish their own broadsides.ConditionRepaired hole in masthead resulting in the loss of the "c" and half of the "i" in "Society. Two or three unobtrusive small stains. Several small edge tears with no loss to text. Otherwise fine.

        Physiologische Studien über die Hemmungsmechanismen für die Reflexthätigkeit des Rückenmarks im Gehirne des Frosches.

      . Berlin, August Hirschwald, 1863, 8°, IV, 81 pp., Halbleinenband d.Zt.; St.a.Tit.. First edition of this extraordinarily rare treatise on the reflexes of the brain, a pioneer work on cerebral reflex activity. According to Sechenov, higher brain function, including any so-called voluntary act, was basically reflex in nature for it was a response to sensory stimulation which led to a motor act. "Thus the nervous system as a whole functioned exclusively by means of reflex activity: lower or spinal reflexes, and cerebral or "psychic" reflexes which included emotions and thoughts" (Clarke & O'Malley, p. 362). "Sechenov considered cerebral reflex activity the source of voluntary actions. Stimulations, according to him, arise in the peripheral sense organs and are mediated to the psychic realm, which determines the nature of muscular response. Absence of all senses would thus make psychic life impossible. However, the reflex activity itself is regulated by other cerebral centers (especially that in the mid-brain), which serve in an inhibitory capacity" (Haymaker & Schiller). - Sechenov (1829-1905), the father of Russian physiology, laid the foundation for the study of reflexes, animal and human behaviour, and neuroscience. He showed that brain activity is linked to electric currents and was the first to introduce electrophysiology. Among his discoveries was the cerebral inhibition of spinal reflexes, and described how the physiochemical factors in the environment of the cell are of equal if not greater importance. - - Garrison & Morton No. 1362; Rothschuh Nr. 1507

      Edinburgh: Edmonston and Douglas,, 1863. Octavo (219 × 141 mm). Contemporary black half calf by Harrison, Pall Mall, marbled boards, red morocco label, low, narrow bands milled in gilt, lozenges gilt to the compartments, marbled edges and endpapers. Tinted lithographic frontispiece and 8 other similar plates, 4 engraved plates and one plan, 5 engraved illustrations to the text, and a folding engraved track chart.

        Autograph manuscript leaf of notes on the Polish question, taken from the notebook labelled "Exzerpte. Heft No 2".

      [London, 1863].. 4to (202 × 166 mm). 2 pp. (numbered 51 and 155) on a sheet of blue paper removed from a notebook, watermarked Chartham Mills Fine. 32 and 28 lines. Preserved in a custom-made chemise.. Marx's research notes towards a planned joint publication with Engels following the uprising in the Russian part of Poland in January 1863. "When in 1863 the January uprising broke out in the Russian part of Poland and a Prussian intervention on the side of the Tsar with the Russo-Prussian Alvensleben Convention (February 8th) appeared probable, Karl Marx saw a new era of European revolutions opened and a statement necessary. He and Friedrich Engels planned to write a manifesto on behalf of the London based German emigre Bildungsgesellschaft für Arbeiter as well as a more comprehensive and elaborate pamphlet to be titled 'Deutschland & Polen. Polit[isch]. milit[ärische]. Betrachtungen bei Gelegenheit des polnischen Aufstands von 1863'" (Götz Langkau, IISG). Though ultimately abandoned due to poor health and, implicitly, the waning revolutionary prospects of the insurrection, Marx spent the early months of 1863 filling a notebook with extracts from the daily press, and two exercise books with extracts and notes from a variety of diplomatic sources, historical surveys and political pamphlets covering Polish-Prussian-Russian relations from the early 18th century, and various drafts of the intended historical survey, more or less elaborated and covering mainly events of the 18th century up to the Congress of Vienna. The present leaf, removed from the second exercise book headed "Exzerpte, Heft No 2 (Politischer, nicht zum Heft gehöriger Dreck)", approximately 750 words in length, contains notes about Russia's German policy between Austerlitz and the Vienna congress. - Final line of page 51 very slightly smudged, the inner edge of the leaf unevenly trimmed, in very good condition. We are indebted to Götz Langkau of the International Institute of Social History in Amsterdam for his report on this leaf, available upon request. - Published, from a photocopy held by the Russian State Archive of Socio-Political History, in: Beiträge zur Geschichte der polnischen Frage (Manuskripte aus den Jahren 1863-1864), Warsaw, 1986, pp. 870-875, in parallel German and Polish text.

        NATIONAL RESOLUTIONS.

      15, [1 blank] pp. Stitched, with two small binding holes in blank inner margin. Two competing Resolutions-- a majority and minority report, printed with numbered lines. Light spotting, Very Good. "Presented by J.E. Pecker" is inscribed on title page. Col. Jonathan Eastman Pecker [1838-1915] was an antiquarian, active in the New Hampshire Historical Society, an incorporator of the New Hampshire Library Association, and owner of one of the largest private libraries in the State. He was an army correspondent for the Boston Journal during the Civil War and accompanied nearly every New Hampshire regiment to the front. Pecker was a direct descendant of Major James Pecker, a surgeon in the Continental Army, who died from exposure and harsh conditions at Valley Forge. The first Resolution, voted by the six-member majority of the Committee on National Resolutions, supports President Lincoln's policies in seeking "complete and triumphant victory" over the rebels. The second, the four-member Minority Report, condemns the Administration' s exercise of arbitrary power: not even a "state of war confers upon the President.any powers, executive, legislative or administrative, over persons or property, above or beyond what are vested in him or them by the Federal Constitution." Among Lincoln's unconstitutional actions is the Emancipation Proclamation, which is "burdensome upon the people, unjust in its very nature, and wholly without warrant of the Constitution"; his proclamation of martial law; and the banishment to Canada of the annoying Copperhead Clement Vallandigham. New Hampshire was the home of former President Franklin Pierce, a "Northern Democrat with Southern Principles" before the War, a Copperhead during the War, and an ally of a number of his Copperhead friends in the New Hampshire legislature.Not located on OCLC as of October 2014, or in NUC, LCP, Bartlett, Sabin.
