        Explorations In The Interior Of The Labrador Peninsula The Country Of The Montagnais And Nasquapee Indians.

      London: Longman, Green, Longman, Roberts, & Green, 1863. - 2 Volumes in 1. 8vo. pp. 1 p.l., [v]-xv, [1], 351; xiii, [1 leaf], 304. with half-title in Vol. II only. 2 engraved maps (1 folding), 12 chromolithographed plates, & 23 wood-engraved text illus. (1 full-page). modern half calf, top edge gilt (extremities bit rubbed, occasional light foxing & marginal soiling, short repaired marginal tear in folding map). First Edition. Hind, a professor of chemistry at the University of Toronto, had previously been engaged as a geologist by the Canadian government on the Red River and Assiniboine and Saskatchewan surveying expeditions of 1857-58. In 1861, in company with his brother, artist William George Richardson Hind, he explored Labrador along the Montagnais route, from the Bay of Seven Islands on the north shore of the Gulf of St. Lawrence, overland through the interior by the Moisie River to Hamilton Inlet on the Labrador coast. In addition to providing a detailed report on the topography and natural history of the country, Hind’s narrative also contains much interesting detail regarding the Esquimaux, Montagnais, Nasquapee and Abenakis Indians, their customs and way of life. Historical accounts are given of the various Roman Catholic, Anglican, and Moravian missions established there, as well as of the political and commercial importance of the Labrador peninsula and Newfoundland fisheries. The chromolithographed plates, after original watercolours by W.G.R.Hind, are particularly striking, and vividly portray the Labrador landscape, the events of the journey, and various aspects of local aboriginal life.

        The Draft Riots in New York July, 1863

      New York: Baker & Godwin Publishers, 1863. First edition. Octavo, full cloth, all edges gilt, gilt ruling to the front and rear panel. In very good condition. Embossed name of Erastus Clark on the front panel. Clark was an American attorney, government official, and union official, who served on the Interstate Commerce Commission from 1906 to 1921, and was its chairman during 1913–1914 and 1918–1921. OCLC locates only two copies of this work. Rare. The New York City draft riots (July 13–16, 1863), were violent disturbances in New York City that were the culmination of discontent with new laws passed by Congress that year to draft men to fight in the ongoing American Civil War. The riots remain the largest civil insurrection in American history, aside from the Civil War itself.

        New York Draft Riots: "A Great Fraud"

      New York 1863 - Broadside. New York: Workingmen's Democratic Republican Association, [November, 1863]. 1 p. Rare broadside printed four months after the New York Draft Riots, reflecting working class reaction against the politicians who misled the people into taking part in the riots. Signed in print by "A Democratic Workingman." Partial Transcript"The true object of Democratic institutions is to promote the security, happiness, freedom, and prosperity of the people, under a government of their own framing. the government of the United Sta[t]es is of this kind. Politicians, ambitious of place and power, and who have for more than thirty years plotted the overthrow of Democracy, have during all that time been guilty of a great fraud on the Workingmen of the country . In the name of Democracy they advocate the interest of traitors who hate freedom, and who believe that Slavery is the true condition of all Labor . In the name of Democracy they have stirred up the laboring men and have filled the streets of New York with bloodshed, arson, and riots, and have disgraced us in the eyes of the world . they denounce the heroic soldiers of the Union as 'Bull Dogs and Hell Hounds' who are engaged in murder and arson, and not in a noble effort to save our democratic institutions from destruction. stand firmly by your own interests --- the interests of Free Labor everywhere! Stand firmly by your government, and vote only for men who will be true to you and to your children."Historical BackgroundThe Enrollment Act of 1863 was intended to fill the Union Army's depleted muster rolls, but created an immediate backlash in Northern cities. Resistance was particularly virulent in New York City, where a strong Copperhead contingent attacked the conscription system by disseminating leaflets and "pro-labor" rhetoric in the press, helping to incite violence. When the drawing of draft lots began on July 13, 1863, a mob sacked the District building and attacked firemen and police, setting fires and lynching free blacks. The conflict raged for a full four days, causing roughly 1,000 casualties, before Union regiments called from the frontlines restored order at the point of the bayonet.This is one of several broadsides issued by the Democratic-Republican Workingman's Association of New York in the aftermath of the destructive Draft Riots, arguing that Copperhead politicians had duped the common laborer. The broadside is known in two states, but without the date. OCLC locates copies at New York Historical Society, Library Company of Philadelphia, and the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library.

        TALES OF ALL COUNTRIES. [Second Series]

      1863 - London: Chapman & Hall, 1863. Original blind-stamped blue cloth. First Edition. Like the first series published two years earlier, this is a collection of Trollope short stories sited in various places around the globe -- such as Egypt, Palestine, Munich, Bermuda and Rome. All had appeared in magazines, but not in book form.~Sadleir notes that this "Second Series" is considerably scarcer than the first, ranking it at the head of his "B" list of titles ("A" being scarcest, "D" being least scarce):~ This book holds a high place in the schedule of Trollope rarities. Undoubtedly the publishers found that the First Series of Tales of All Countries did not sell as well as they expected, and, therefore, they placated their important author by publishing the book on the same terms as the First Series, but -- I suspect -- safeguarded themselves by printing fewer copies than they were legally entitled to do.~Sadleir specifies pale yellow endpapers for this book, but this copy has the same bright blue endpapers as were used in the First Series. This is a very good copy (spine ends a little ruffled, endpapers cracked). Sadleir 16. Housed in a morocco-backed slipcase. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Col. James Clay Rice Lobbies for Military Promotions

      1863 - Autograph Letter Signed, to William Kidd, Esq., Head Quarters 44th [New York Volunteers] Camp near Falmouth, Virginia, March 14, 1863. 2pp. "This regiment is equal in bravery to a brigade. the boys are here who can fill [the] positions." Complete TranscriptHead Quarters 44th N.Y.V.of the Army, Camp near Falmouth, Va. March 14th, 1863 Wm Kidd Esq. Military Secretary Albany.My dear Sir, Yours of the 4th inst. has been rec'd. I shall take the first opportunity to appoint Sergeant Dempsey a Second Lieutenant in accordance with your wishes. I am recommending a good many men from this regiment to promotions in other positions in the gift of Gov. Seymour, but all recommendations which I sign for positions in this regiment, I send officially to Adjt. Genl. Sprague. The Governor has appointed Watson & Adsit by mistake to Lieutenants position in this regiment. Will you be so kind as to speak to General Sprague in regard to this, so that no mistakes may happen hereafter. Watson & Adsit, pass over many deserving Sergeants and Second Lieutenants, and this causes much trouble. I hope it will not happen hereafter, since all promotions in this regiment are officially sent by mail to General Sprague. My name was not sent up by the President to the Senate as Brigadier General. The announcement in the Albany Evening Journal was premature. This regiment is equal in bravery to a brigade, and it will accomplish as much as most brigades in any battle. Whenever you see a chance to make a Major, Captain, 1st or 2d Lieutenant let me know, for the boys are here who can fill their positions. I am very sincerely, Your friend COL. J.C. RICEJames Clay Rice (1829-1864) was a Union Brigadier General born in Worthington, Massachusetts. With little prior formal education, he entered Yale University and graduated in 1854. He then moved to Mississippi, where he taught school, edited a literary magazine, and studied law. He returned to New York and practiced law before enlisting in the 39th New York Infantry Regiment in May 1861. He advanced to Captain, and the Lieutenant Colonel, then Colonel of the 44th New York Volunteer Regiment, leading it throughout General George B. McClellan's Peninsula Campaign. Rice saw service in the First and Second Battles of Bull Run, and the Battles of Fredericksburg and Chancellorsville. At Gettysburg, he performed heroic service on Little Round Top, leading to appointment his as Brigadier General. He served at the beginning of the Wilderness Campaign, and at the battle of Spotsylvania Courthouse on May 10, 1864, his thigh was shattered by a rifle ball, which necessitated amputation of his leg. He died shortly after the procedure. When the surgeon asked him on which side he would rest more comfortably, he replied, "Turn me over that I may die with my face to the enemy."

        Report on the Construction of a Military Road From Walla-Walla to Fort Benton

      Washington Government Printing Office 1863 - Complete with Four Tinted Plates and Four Folding Maps MULLAN, Capt. John. Report on the Construction of a Military Road From Walla-Walla to Fort Benton. Washington: Government Printing Office, 1863. First edition. Octavo (8 7/8 x 5 3/4 inches; 225 x 147 mm). [4], [1]-363, [1, blank], [1, errata], [5, blank] pp. With ten tinted plates and four folding maps. Bound by the US Government Bindery in green textured cloth. Boards ruled in blind. Spine lettered in gilt and blind. A bit of browning and offsetting throughout. A few small dampstains to fore-edge and to the creases of the first and second map. A tiny hole in the cloth of the back outer hinge. Three previous owner's small bookplates on front pastedown. Overall a very good copy. "[John Mullan was an] army explorer, road builder, and lawyer. he volunteered for assignment to the northern railway survey headed by Governor Isaac I. Stevens of Washington Territory. This began a ten-year period of exploration and road building in the Pacific Northwest that is the basis for Mullan's reputation. The army transferred Mullan to the topographical engineers, and Stevens assigned him to a party bringing supplies up the Missouri River to Fort Benton.In 1857 Stevens became the delegate to Congress from Washington Territory. Realizing that a railroad was unlikely at any time in the near future, he pushed for construction of a military road from the head of navigation at Fort Benton to the Walla Walla Valley. Congress made an appropriation of $100,000, and Stevens successfully lobbied for Mullan's appointment to head the project.On arriving in the territory Mullan found himself in the middle of a war occasioned by the defeat of Colonel Edward Steptoe's command. Mullan was attached to the punitive expedition of Colonel George Wright as an aide and topographical engineer and participated in that capacity at the battles of Four Lakes and Spokane Plain near present Spokane in 1858. With the Indians subdued, but in some cases still hostile, Mullan began his road building the next year, proceeding north from Walla Walla to Lake Coeur d'Alene, then turning east toward Fort Benton, retracing the route he had explored during the railroad survey. Additional appropriations allowed Mullan to complete the more than 600-mile route by 1863, although wagons had begun to move over the road well before completion. The road represented a major engineering effort for which Mullan deservedly received high praise (and a promotion to captain in 1862); Mullan produced two major reports and an immigrant guide during this period, 'Topographical Memoir of Colonel Wright's Campaign' (1859), 'Report on the Construction of a Military Road from Fort Walla Walla to Fort Benton' (1863), and 'Miners' and Travelers' Guide . . . via the Missouri and Columbia Rivers' (1865)."

Forty seven volumes complete in themselves, running from 1863 to 1912 butmissing the years 1889, 1898 and 1900. Church Congress is an annual meeting of members of the Church of England, lay and clerical, to discuss matters religious, moral or social, in which the church is interested. It has no legislative authority, and there is no voting on the questions discussed. The first congress was held in 1861 in the hall of Kings College, Cambridge, and was the outcome of the revival of convocation in 1852. From 1879 the congress included an Ecclesiastical and Educational Art Exhibition. The congress is under the presidency of the bishop in whose diocese it happens to be held. The meetings of the congress have been mainly remarkable as illustrating the wide divergences of opinion and practice in the Church of England, no less than the broad spirit of tolerance which has made this possible and honorably differentiates these meetings from so many ecclesiastical assemblies of the past. The congress of 1908 was especially distinguished, not only for the expression of diametrically opposed views on such questions as the sacrifice of the mass or the higher criticism, but for the very large proportion of time given to the discussion of the attitude of the Church towards socialism and kindred subjects. Condition: In half calf bindings. Externally generally sound although rubbed, with occasional loss to the leather, including a few spine labels. Three joints are starting, four are cracked, and one board is held by the cords only. Internally, firmly bound.

St Michael and all Angels Theological College Aberdarelabels and ink stamps throughout. Two copperplate ink signatures of W. S. Dewinton, one dated 1891. Overall: VERY GOOD. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Le Desert de Suez: Cinq Mois dans L'Isthme

      Paris - Hetzel Collection 1863 - An account of the time that landscape artist Narcisse Berchere spent in Suez. Features a fold-out colour map of Isthmus to the rear. With armorial bookplate dated Paris 1834 to front pastedown. Narcisse Berchre was commissioned by Ferdinand de Lesseps to make a visual record of the first phase of the construction of the Suez Canal. To this end, he spent five months in the Isthmus, from November 1861 to March 1862. He is said, by his first biographer, Bernard Prost to have completed an 'album', containing 68 plans, drawings and watercolours. This 'album' was given by Berchre to Ferdinand de Lesseps, who then presented it to Emperor Napoleon III, via the Duc de Bassano. It was held at the Palais des Tuileries in Paris, where it is believed to have perished, when the Palace was burned down in 1871, at the time of the Commune. Fortunately, Narcisse Berchre also gave a verbal account of his experiences in a book, published by Jules Hetzel in 1863, Le Dsert de Suez: cinq mois dans l'Isthme. Condition: In a quarter crushed morocco binding with marbled boards. Externally, very good with just a little shelfwear. Internally, firmly bound.
