        Autograph Letter (unsigned)

      According to Earl B. McElfresh, author of "Maps and Mapmakers of the Civil War," Paine was "One of the finest topographical engineers in the Union Army of the Potomac... A hardworking, unassuming staff officer... When Meade made his perilous night ride from Taneytown, Maryland, to the Gettysburg battlefield on July 1, 1863, it was Paine who led the way." Superb content AL (unsigned), 4pp, 5" X 8", Head Quarters Army of the Potomac, 1864 March 10. Addressed to "Friend Powell" (George May Powell, 1835-1905, Treasury Department statistician, entrepreneur, inventory, evangelist, philanthropist, social reformer, cartographer, etc.). Near fine. Delightful letter acknowledging receipt of photographs, commenting: "They arrived during my absence on a cavalry raid. ...I came very near going with Col. Dahlgren. I had made every arrangement to go, but received an order to guide the 6th Corps to Madison Court House so that I was absent when he started. Gen Custer coming through Madison Court House on his raid I joined him and as it now proves was on the most successful branch of the movements. Col. Dahlgren was one of my most intimate friends here. He made out the plan relating to the time and distances in my tent. When he mentioned Sunday as the day for starting I mentioned my views upon that point. He said he agreed with me in relation to the duty of keeping the Sabbath but said that time must not be lost and Sunday was mentioned as the earliest time they could leave He said in the same connection that he never undertook any such enterprise without asking God's blessing." Ulric Dahlgren (1842-64), son of Admiral John Dahlgren, was the youngest colonel in the U.S. Army and was killed in a March 2nd raid to liberate Union troops from Libby Prison and Belle Isle near Richmond -- bringing about the controversial "Dahlgren Affair," for on his body were discovered documents ordering him to assassinate Jefferson Davis and his cabinet. Discussing the presidential campaign, Paine notes: "I do hope there will be no split in the Presidential campaign. I do not believe the Republicans can bring a stronger candidate than Prest Lincoln. I think Fremont would not stand the ghost of a chance for an election though I think he would make a good president." Paine also expresses strong views about "the dancing question" -- "Abstractly, dancing is not improper, and if one is sure that no encouragement is given to those forms, times and places of dancing that are objectionable, by indulging in that which is unobjectionable in itself I can see no possibility of harm, and nothing improper in it. There are many paths from virtue to vice besides going right over a precipice. One of them is the dancing hall which inclines down words at quite an angle and many have in the bewilderment of the dance found themselves at the lower end before they were aware of it. The dividing line between morality and immorality, between virtue and vice is like the equatorial or other lines on the earths surface, not seen marked across our path but it requires careful observation to know just when we cross. It is best to keep as clear as possible of this boundary line." And there ends, unsigned, this fascinating letter, rare and unusual.

Uhland began his career as a poet in 1807 and 1808 by contributing ballads and lyrics to Seckendorff's Musenalmanach; and in 1812 and 1813 he wrote poems for Kerner's Poetischer Almanach and Deutscher Dichterwald. In 1815 he collected his poems in a volume entitled Vaterlndische Gedichte, which almost immediately secured a wide circle of readers. To almost every new edition he added some fresh poems. His two dramatic works wereErnst, Herzog von Schwaben (1818) and Ludwig der Baier (1819). As a lyric poet, Uhland must be classed with the writers of the romantic school. Like them, he found in the Middle Ages the subjects which appealed most strongly to his imagination. Yet his style has a precision, suppleness and grace which distinguish his most characteristic writings from those of the romantics. Uhland wrote poems in defense of freedom, and in the states assembly of Wrttemberg he played a distinguished part as one of the most vigorous and consistent of the liberal members. With previous owner's bookplate to front pastedown. Condition: In a half calf binding with marbled paper covered boards. Externally, sound but with some wear to extremities.

        Collection of Twelve Autograph Letters Signed to His Father and Mother (Including two letters by his Superiors), Related to His Naval Service in the West Indies and Quebec, and with Travel Notes about Halifax and Saint John's, Newfoundland].

      - Various locations: Gosport Royal Academy, HMS Britannia, Chew Magna, HMS Aurora (at Port Royal and Quebec), SS Hibernian, Halifax, SS Alpha, St. Thomas (Barbados), 1 April 1863 - [26 June 1876]. Twelve Octavo letters (from ca. 18x11,5 cm to ca. 21x13,5 cm). In all 67 pp. of text. Brown or black ink on letter paper (white, blue or green); ten letters by E.A. Ommanney and two by his superiors. Fold marks, some letters weak on folds, with minor tears; two with traces from old staples being removed. Overall a very good collection. Twelve autograph letters related to the naval career of Commander Erasmus Austin Ommanney, a son of distinguished Arctic explorer Admiral Sir Erasmus Ommanney (1814-1904), who commanded the "Assistance" on the first Franklin Relief Expedition of 1850 and was responsible for discovering the first traces of Franklin's party. Covering the period of thirteen years, the letters contain interesting notes about Quebec, Saint John's (Newfoundland), Halifax, and naval service in the West Indies. Nine early letters date back to the time of Ommanney's studies in the Gosport Royal Academy (1863) and his service as a midshipman on HMS Britannia and Aurora (1864-1867), including a superior's note about him successfully having passed the summer exam (16th out of 64; 1863); and news of him becoming a midshipman "with a first class certificate, a good conduct certificate and a gold compass" (Sept. 30, 1864). Two letters written on board HMS Aurora tell about his service in the West Indies - Barbados, Trinidad, La Guaira (Venezuela) and Port Royal (Jamaica), with a detailed description of the recovery of the wreck of HMS Bulldog which ran aground near Cap-Haitien in 1865, whilst attacking the port as part of a punitive raid against local revolutionaries. The recovery was conducted using "diving dresses;" and later Ommanney went on shore to witness the destruction of the city: "the shot had great effect upon the town, the houses knocked about a great deal The forts are in ruins, the guns are in a most ludicrous state, some turned right over others on their sides & I should not care to be close to them when they were fired off as I think they might chance to burst, they look so rotten" (March 18, 1866). Three letters written while a midshipman on HMS Aurora stationed in Quebec contain an interesting description of Ommanney's ten-day trip "into the woods," down the Murray River to the Murray Bay (La Malbaie, north shore of St. Lawrence River). The party of three went down the river in bark canoes, accompanied by four Indians, slept in wigwams and enjoyed "capital fishing" and "magnificent scenery we were sitting in canoes being moved along quickly but swiftly among tremendous high steep mountains, they were like a lot of "Gibraltars" all together, but thickly wooded." Three letters written by Ommanney in May-June 1876, during his travel to his new ship - HMS Rover stationed in Port Royal (Jamaica), have some distinct notes on Saint John's (Newfoundland) and Halifax. The houses in St. John's "are of wood and very irregularly built, the streets are badly paved & very dirty and a strong smell of fish pervades the whole place; whalers and seal ships come here a great deal." When entering St. John's harbour Ommanney's steamboat struck an iceberg, and "fortunately no damage was done it only grazed along the side. It had such a peculiar appearance, with the light shining on it Female passengers were greatly agitated & thought their last moments had arrived." "I find Halifax very dull & it seems quite different to what I remember it in former days The country is not very pretty, all the trees seem so stunted, the roads are disgraceful everywhere, both town & country Fog seems to be the great feature of the place, it has hardly been fine one whole day since I have been here."

        The Waverley Novels, Illustrated Edition in 48 Volumes, with the Author's Notes

      Ticknor & Fields 1863 - No jackets. Spines faded & lightly spotted, boards a bit rubbed. 1863 Hard Cover. We have more books available by this author! Complete in forty-eight volumes. 8vo. Original purple cloth, paper spine labels. Engravings and woodcuts throughout. Advertisement preceding text states: "This edition of the Waverley Novels contains, with a few exceptions, all the Woodcuts that appeared in the Abbotsford Edition, besides the Steel Plates belonging to the Author's Favourite Edition in forty-eight volumes. Sir Walter Scott took much pleasure in forming a museum at Abbotsford of the antiquities which illustrated the historical events and personages recorded in his writings. Copies of these will be found throughout this edition of his Novels." "Waverley is a 1814 historical novel by Sir Walter Scott. Initially published anonymously in 1814 as Scott's first venture into prose fiction, Waverley is often regarded as the first historical novel. The novel became so popular that Scott's later novels were advertised as being "by the author of Waverley". His series of novels on similar themes written during the same period have become collectively known as the "Waverley novels". In 1815, Scott was given the honour of dining with George, Prince Regent, who wanted to meet "the author of Waverley". It is thought that at this meeting Scott persuaded George that as a Stuart prince he could claim to be a Jacobite Highland Chieftain, a claim that would be dramatised when George became King and visited Scotland. The Waverley Novels are a long series of books by Sir Walter Scott. They take their name from Waverley (1814), which was the first. Their publication dates span 1814-1829." [Attributes: Hard Cover]
