        A Lady's Visit to Manilla and Japan.

      London: Hurst and Blackett, 1863 - Octavo. Original red pimple-grained cloth, title gilt to the spine, large gilt block of Filipino cock-fighters to the upper board, blind panels to both boards, drab surface-paper endpapers. A little rubbed and soiled, spine skilfully repaired head and tail, light toning, a very good copy. Chromolithographic frontispiece of "The Bay and Part of the Town of Nagasaki" after a drawing by the author's husband, title-page vignette of a "Japanese Tea-House Girl". First edition. An interesting and uncommon account of a wide-ranging tour of the Far East by Anna D'Almeida, the wife of William Barrington D'Almeida, a Singapore-born British diplomat and businessman. Anna had accompanied him to his postings in Hong Kong and Java - William's two-volume an account of Java was published the following year - after which they travelled extensively through the Philippines, parts of the coast of China during the Taiping rebellion, and Japan. D'Almeida's account of Manilla at this date is probably unique in English, and hers is a very early account of Japan following its "opening" by Commodore Perry. Inevitably the book has become the subject of considerable academic interest, see for example Seija Jalagin's "Gendered Images - Western Women on Japanese Women" in Alenius, Fält, and Jalagin Looking at the Other: Historical Study of Images in Theory and Practice, and Clara Sarmento "Distant Neighbours and Familiar Strangers. The Intercultural Narrative of A Lady's Visit to Manilla and Japan" in Arcadia, 46, 2. Intriguing ownership inscription to the front free endpaper, "Ch[arles] Griswold, 6 Rue de Presbourg, Champs Élysées, Paris 1864". the address was that of William L. Dayton while he was American ambassador to France, and at the time of purchase Griswold was US consul to Manilla. Cordier Japonica 564; Cordier Sinica 2128 [Attributes: First Edition]

Le destinataire n'est pas nomme, il s'agit d'un riche amateur de musique, probablement mecene du compositeur. Dans l'un des billets, Liszt s'invite chez lui avec un ami pour un moment de detente en musique et lui "restitue" 20 francs donnes en trop pour des billets de concert. Dans l'autre, le pianiste lui transmet des programmes et billets pour un concert et se propose de "faire les honneurs de la vue de la Madonna del Rosario" a une connaissance de son correspondant. L'emploi du temps du compositeur a l'air charge en mondanites musicales: "Toute ma semaine est prevue jusqu'a Vendredi". - Provenance: Robert Bory, musicologue.

        Planning Civil War Slave Patrols

      1863 - Autograph Endorsement Signed twice as Governor of South Carolina, to G.T. Beauregard. August 12, 1863. 2 pp. On verso of J.C. McKewn. Autograph Document Signed. [likely Charleston, S.C.], [ca. August 1, 1863]. 1 p. McKewn tabulates a list of 15 men headed "Patrol," men previously tabbed to participate in the "slave patrols" used to round-up runaway slaves. Only four men appear to be qualified and prepared for duty. At bottom McKewn inquires of the Governor if some others can be required to do duty. Bonham forwards the letter to General Beauregard. [in McKewn's hand:] ".Can the non-slaveholders over 60 years be required to do duty, and those slaveholders over that age? You will see that 4 men are appointed to perform patrol duty over a territory 15 miles in length & from 6 to 8 miles in breadth."[in Bonham's hand:] "Ex[ecutive]Dept. Aug. 12/63 Resp for[war]d to Genl. Beauregard at request of Senator McKewn. M. L. Bonham."[in Bonham's hand in pencil:] "Refered to Genl DeSaussure who will present & return this. I sent a copy to Genl Beauregard M.L.B." Historical BackgroundMilledge Luke Bonham (1813-1890) was a well-connected military officer and politician in antebellum South Carolina, fighting in the Seminole War and Mexican American War, and serving in the state legislature and in Congress. He joined the Confederate Army in 1861 and was given command of the 1st Brigade of General G.T. Beauregard's "Army of the Potomac" (later renamed the Army of Northern Virginia). After serving with distinction in this command at the First Battle of Manassas, Bonham resigned his commission to run successfully for a seat in the Confederate Congress, moving on in 1862 to serve as Governor of South Carolina.As the war raged on it became harder and harder for the Confederacy to continue to fight as well as keep the slave population in check.Confederate forces under Beauregard, aided by state forces under Wilmot DeSaussure, had weathered several attacks from the Union Army and Navy in the past month, including the famous assaults on Fort Wagner (or Battery Wagner, as called here) in July. By August, the Union Navy was bombarding Fort Sumter and, occasionally, the city itself. Sumter survived in Confederate hands, but was badly damaged. De Saussure commanded 2 cavalry regiments, 4 infantry regiments (2 state, 2 militia) and several artillery units. Though the Union armed forces remained a constant threat to the principal port city of South Carolina, Confederate defenses in 1863 were well-coordinated.

        Autograph manuscript of the poem beginning "If what we could were what we would," signed "Emily"

      , Circa 1863.. Circa 1863.. The manuscript was sent by Emily Dickinson to her sister-in-law Susan Gilbert, and inherited by Susan's daughter Martha Bianchi. The poem was first published, from this manuscript, as number XIII in "The Single Hound," 1914, Bianchi's edition of the manuscripts and letters that Dickinson had sent to Susan Gilbert. Later editions of the poem were all published from the manuscript in Dickinson's Fasicle 28 (at the Houghton Library) until Franklin's Variorum Edition (1998) where our manuscript is recorded as 540A. The manuscript, in ink, is written in 8 lines, on a single 12mo sheet of wove paper, (6-1/8 x 3-7/8 inches) folded thrice vertically and it is pasted on the front free endpaper in a presentation copy of the first edition of "The Single Hound". Beneath the manuscript the page is inscribed by the editor "For Mr and Mrs Frank Mills from their country neighbor Martha G. Dickinson Bianchi." On the front pastedown endpaper (opposite the manuscript) is written in a different hand "A wedding present Sept. 15 - 1904". Clearly this is a mistake as the book was not published until 1914, although the Mills marriage did occur in 1904 in Amherst. Martha Bianchi's diaries (at Brown University), particularly the 1914 volume, have many references to the Millses. Enclosed in a half red morocco slipcase.

        The Geological Evidences of the Antiquity of Man, with Remarks on Theories of the Origin of Species by Variation.

      London: John Murray 1863.. Third edition, 8vo, xvi, 551, (1), 32 advertisement pp. 2 plates and 58 text figures, a few spots to blanks and half title, small W.H. Smith blind stamp to fly leaf. Original gilt titled blind stamped green pebbled cloth, small hole to upper joint otherwise very good. The last major work of Lyell's life, it was affected by the publication of Darwin's "Origin of Species" four years earlier. Lyell couldn't bring himself to champion the new theories, and his impartial overview of the competing theories in the later chapters disappointed Darwin, although he admitted "The whole... struck me as a compilation, but of the highest quality, for when possible the facts have been verified on the spot..." Bailey pp187-201. First published the same year.

        Lettre autographe en francais a l'encre noire, signe FL.

      Date "jeudi matin", [Rome, circa 1863-1865].. 3 pp. In-16.. Le destinataire n'est pas nomme. Liszt parle de plusieurs concerts: celui de la "Pontificia Congregazione el Accademia di Santa Cecilia" pour lequel il offre un billet a son correspondant en echange d'un billet que ce dernier semble lui avoir offert pour le concert "Parisotti", un "concert plus modeste" au Palazzo Valentini, et un concert de ses "Preludes" executes par Sgambiati. Ce billet nous permet de comprendre les divertissements musicaux charges du compositeur a Rome qui reste curieux de tout ce qui se produit musicalement et qui est en contact etroit avec tous les jeunes musiciens de son temps. - Provenance: Robert Bory, musicologue.
