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

      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. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Appointment Document dated 2 March 1863, signed by Lincoln as President, and countersigned by his Secretary of War, Edwin M.Stanton.

      Washington, D.C.: 1863 - Partially engraved military appointment on vellum with the sections accomplished in manuscript (445 × 330 mm). Mounted, framed and glazed with UV conservation glass in dark wood frame with gilt slip. Originally folded into sixths leaving light creases as usual - it was common to carry such documents as instruments of authority, or means of identification - with two very small losses at the confluence of the upper centre folds, some light soiling verso, Stanton's signature is faded to brown, Lincoln's still quite strong. Blue wafer seal at left, with one small chip, and War Department docketing notations at upper left. Attractive cartouche of the American eagle at the head, and large trophy of arms at the foot, engraved by by J.V.N. and O.H. Throop. The document appoints Carl Proegler as an Assistant Surgeon of Volunteers, effective from October 4, 1862, signed in full Lincoln and Stanton. This appointment was made four months before the Battle of Gettysburg. Dr. Proegler (1837-1907), was born in Cologne and educated Erlangen, Würzburg, and Berlin, graduating from the last in 1859, and studying in Paris and London the following year, before emigrating to the United States. At the outbreak of the Civil War, he broke off from the practice that he had established in New York and "offered his services to the Government and was appointed Junior Surgeon of a hospital in Washington, where he remained for a few months. He afterward served as surgeon of various regiments, including the Twenty-fifth New York Infantry, of which he had charge in his professional capacity for about ten months. At the close of the war Dr. Proegler entered the navy and was made Fleet Surgeon under General Farragut — a position which he filled until 1868" (Memorial Record of Northeastern Indian, p.225). Proegler returned to Germany during the Franco-Prussian War, but in 1872 came back to America and settled in Fort Wayne, Indiana, where "from the beginning he maintained a place among the most able practitioners of this section of the State", a member of the Allen County Medical Society, he was twice Secretary to the State Board of Health. Highly appealing military-medical Lincoln document from the Civil War.

        PANORAMA OF THE MISSISSIPPI VALLEY AND ITS FORTIFICATIONS

      New York: Charles Magnus, [1863].. New York: Charles Magnus, [1863].. Four-panel lithographed strip map, a total of 23 3/4 x 26 inches, with hand-coloring. Old folds. Two-inch closed tear at the bottom edge of the central vertical fold. Sheet lightly tanned. Several small chips and tears around the edges, not affecting the map image itself. Good plus. A wonderful "strip-map" of the Mississippi River, its towns, fortifications, industries and businesses, issued during the Civil War for "a public eager to learn the geography of the various seats of action during the war" (Holland). Four side-by-side vertically oriented maps show the course of the Mississippi from its mouth in the Gulf of Mexico all the way north beyond St. Louis, a distance of more than 1300 river miles. Control of the Mississippi was vitally important during the Civil War, as it was used to move troops and commerce, and ran past several strategically important cities. This map contains inset views of four of those cities - St. Louis, Memphis, Vicksburg, and New Orleans. The map also locates several important forts along the river, including Fort Jackson and Fort St. Philip at the mouth of the Mississippi, and Fort St. Leon at the first major bend of the river, an important defence for New Orleans. Hundreds of towns are located, as are sugar refineries, saw mills, churches, colleges, courthouses, military arsenals and depots, railroad lines, smaller rivers, lakes, and much more. Two distance tables show distances by steamer between various points. This map was created by Charles Magnus, a prolific publisher of views, maps, song sheets, patriotic covers, and more. HOLLAND, MISSISSIPPI RIVER IN MAPS AND VIEWS, pp.154, 160- 161.

Leider aber nennt man mich wenigstens in dem Sinne mit Recht einen literarischen Einsiedler, als ich ohne alle Verbindungen bin. Die einzige Buchhandlung, zu der ich Beziehungen habe, ist die Campesche in Hamburg. Diese aber bricht zwar die einmal bestehenden Geschäfts-Verhältnisse, zu denen auch das mit mir gehört, nicht ab, knüpft jedoch bei dem hohen Alter des Chefs keine neue[n] mehr an, ausgenommen auf dem politischen Gebiet. In Wien verkehrte ich früher mit der Firma Tendler et Comp., bei welcher mein[e] Agnes Bernauer, mein Gyges und mein Michel Angelo erschienen; diese aber hat den Verlag eingestellt und ihre Verlags-Artikel sogar an die Herrn Gerold verkauft. Ich bin daher gänzlich außer Stande, Ihnen bei der Veröffentlichung Ihres Dramas hülfreiche Hand zu leisten [...]". - Mit kl.

        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]

        2 lettres autographes en francais a l'encre noire, signes FL.

      Dates "Dimanche" et "Dimanche matin", non situes [Rome, circa 1863-1865].. 6 pp. In-16.. 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.

        A Lady's Visit to Manilla and Japan

      London: Hurst and Blackett,, 1863. 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. 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". A little rubbed and soiled, spine skilfully repaired head and tail, light toning, a very good copy. 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.
