        WE , THE UNDERSIGNED, RESPECTIVELY CONTRIBUTE THE SUM SET OPPOSITE EACH OF OUR NAMES, FOR THE PURPOSE OF CONDUCTING THE PRESENT UNION POLITICAL CAMPAIGN IN THE STATE OF OHIO; FOR THE SUCCESS OF THE UNION TICKET, AND FOR THE DEFEAT AND UTTER EXTERMINATION OF VALLANDIGHAMISM AND TREASON IN THE STATE.

      1863. Broadside, 7.5" x 9.25". Printed on lined paper, with the names of thirty- four men in pencil manuscript with their donation amounts. All names appear to be in the same handwriting. Light folds, a small chip to blank left edge. Very Good. Clement Vallandigham, two-term Ohio Congressman, was the most prominent and notorious of the Midwest Copperheads. General Burnside arrested him in 1863, on Lincoln's orders, for inflammatory anti-War and anti-Negro speeches. Found guilty by a military tribunal, he was banished to the Confederacy. But a few months later he turned up in Canada, campaigning in absentia as a Peace Democrat for Ohio's governorship in 1863. Ohio's Union Party energetically sought his defeat. This election broadside is a survival of that effort. Vallandigham lost by more than 100,000 votes. The names listed on this broadside were from Geauga County, Ohio, mostly from Russell Township and Chester Township. Most were farmers; Jacob Chase was a blacksmith; John Peirce a cattle broker; and Joseph Wooley a minister. Some other names include Artemas Robinson, Detroit Burnett, Warren Robinson, John H. Peirce, Jacob Chase, Samuel G. Perkins, Calvin Gates, Cyrus Millard, James Logan, T.C. Phinney, Allen Burgess, Joseph Wooley, W.C. Burgess, John King, Emory Petton, C.T Bailey, Samuel Robinson, Roswell Jones, Augustus Greenfield, B.F. Robinson, B. Matthews, A.M. Hall, H. Lansing, Taber Warren, A. Roby, N.L. Smith, and H.S. Childs.

        Iceland: Its Scenes and Sagas.

      1863 1863 - London: Smith, Elder and Co. 1863. With 1 folding engraved, nicely restored map, 4 chromo-lithographs, 12 fullpage woodcuts and 17 textual illustr. + music. XLVIII + 448 pp. A few leaves weakly foxed, otherwise a well-preserved copy bound in nice three-quarter blue morocco richly gilt on spine and goldlines on boards, all edges gilt. Binding signed Tout Binder. * Aged twenty-eight, Sabine Baring-Gould, the young writer and teacher, was fascinated by the tradition of the Icelandic sagas, and this was the catalyst for his adventure and the book that emerged from it. His voyage took him from the then tiny settlement of Reykjavik through remote and hostile terrain, passing through the empty expanse of Iceland's countryside. Baring-Gould provides a colourful account of an Icelandic society that has long since disappeared. Illustrated with Baring-Gould's own drawings, Iceland: Its Scenes and Sagas is an entertaining and eccentric insight into a world of myth and legend as well as a classic of natural and human observation.

" Appointed to be read in churches.... Printed at the University Press. Sold by E. Gardner and Son...and by all booksellers. Printed in easy-to-read large type in double columns, with the Apocrypha separating the Old and New Testaments. Preceding the New Testament is a "Family Register" beginning with Rev. Benjamin Webb (1695 - 1746), a preacher, of Eastham, Mass. Three generations of Webbs are listed here. His fifth child and youngest son, Barnabas (1731), married Mary Holmes (b. 1734), daughter of Boston silversmith William Holmes. Her family records are listed for four generations, starting with Rev. William Homes, born in Ireland in 1663, moved to Chilmark, MA. Name is variously spelled Homes/Holmes in this Bible. One of the Holmes, a sea captain, married the sister of Benjamin Franklin. The 13 children of Barnabas and Mary are the last people listed in these pages. This is a beautiful Bible of historic interest, and invaluable if your ancestors include the Barnabas Webb family.

        Archive of papers and watercolour drawings pertaining to the naval career and foreign civil service of Captain Fritz Hauch Eden Crowe, featuring early watercolour views of Brazil and Patagoina, as well as a letter written at Valparaiso in Chile.

      England, Spain, South America, Africa, 1863-1903., 1863. The lot comprises 1 notice of appointment from the admiralty, 6 letters of correspondence - some of which concern his appointments and retirement and three being written and signed by him, 13 watercolour drawings including eight made in South America, 2 pencil drawings, 1 newspaper clipped map of the Amazon River, and 1 manuscript transcript of an announcement for his post as Consul-General of Lourenço Marques. Together with four documents related to his family's estate and his own final will. Manuscript documents and letters range in size from folio to thirty-twomo. Watercolours also range in size, the smallest measuring approximately 11,5 x 5 cm, the largest measuring approximately 20 x 15 cm. Some creasing and age-toning to estate documents, otherwise the lot in very good condition. Provenance: From the estate of Miss N. Crowe, an heiress of Captain Fritz Crowe's estate, so stated on a manuscript note amidst the papers, which reads, "English - Captain F.H.E. Crowe's Private papers & despatches & Miss N. Crowe's Norwegian inheritance (only papers in existence now)." Miss N. Crowe may be the "infant daughter" named in his will amendment. The note is written on paper watermarked 'Basildon Bond' which was not manufactured until 1911, by Millington & Co. This compendious naval career archive consists of the personal papers of an all-but-forgotten yet significant Royal Navy Officer and Colonial Administrator of Norwegian descent, Captain Fritz Hauch Eden Crowe. Not much appears elsewhere as far as archives or even documentation, in spite of his continuous service in the Pacific and South America in the 1870s, providing fortifications at Ismailia on the Suez Canal in August 1883 during the occupation of Egypt, participating in the First Suakin Expedition 1884 in the Sudan, and contributing greatly to espionage efforts and the passage of arms and munitions, as Consul-General and Director of Intelligence in Portuguese East Africa during the Second Boer War. Captain Fritz Hauch Eden Crowe, RN, CB, (1849-1904) was born in Christiania, Norway. Little else about his private life is known, although the present lot of documents provides a genealogical record and further reveals that he had a daughter in his last living year. He lived a short but accomplished life, serving with the British Royal Navy for the majority of his adult life, then taking an appointment as a Consul-General in Portuguese East Africa for two years, ending his term shortly before his death. He is also remembered for two valuable reports on whale fishing in Iceland. In 1863 he completed his cadet training for the Navy. In 1871 he was a sub-lieutenant on the Victoria and Albert, 1872 onboard HMS Woodlark in the Mediterranean, in 1876 served on HMS Shah in Peru; in 1878 with HMS Triumph he was again in South America - this time in Brazil and Patagonia. In 1881, by then having the rank of Lieutenant, he was on the Royal Navy Training Ship "HMS Implacable" at the naval port in Devonport, Devon, England. In 1883, he and his crew from "HMS Coquette" contributed to the British campaigns in the Sudan. He retired from the Navy with the rank of Captain on 13 October 1896 due to health reasons. On 2 March 1900 Captain Fritz Hauch Eden Crowe, RN, was appointed His Majesty's Consul-General at Lourenco Marques, in Portuguese East Africa, [now Maputo, Mozambique], arriving and replacing Carnegie Ross in April. At the time, munitions of war and contraband were being trans-shipped and smuggled through Mozambique to the South African Republic. He held this post until 1902. He is also on the list of 1902 Coronation Honours. According to the present documents, he became the father of an infant girl circa 1902-1903, leaving her in the care of his sister upon his death on 11 August 1904. Nothing is mentioned of the child's mother whose identity remains unknown. Captain Crowe was an effective and commanding diplomat, as well as a determined Chief of Intelligence, although nowhere in any of the Lourenco Marques (LM) documents of the period is he described either as a diplomat or as a station chief. This may have been to protect his identity, as he undertook risky tasks and navigated delicate situations as a spymaster and director of secret service operations for the Foreign Office. His intelligence work included espionage , misinformation and propaganda, detecting contraband, coordinating the debriefing of spies (generally Africans), planning and overseeing covert military operations in enemy territory and the Border Area. He was also involved in the clandestine importation and passage of arms and munitions of war under protection of a Secret Anglo-Portuguese Treaty of 14 October 1899, which enabled the shipment of armaments through Mozambique into the South African Republic. He was taught the cypher system which had arranged by Lt-Col A. E. Sandbach, an Assistant Adjutant-General (Intelligence), which they used to gather military intelligence in the Transvaal, to communicate on the transfer of armaments, Boer activity, and more. Crowe sent regular intelligence diaries to the Foreign Office and copies to the High Commissioner in Cape Town, the Governor of Natal and army headquarters, also to General Buller and Field Marshal Lord Roberts. The archive includes: Three signed manuscript letters by Captain Fritz Hauch Eden Crowe including Victorian era correspondence penned at sea: The earliest is penned at the Eastmans RN Academy in March 1863 the next, from Portland in April 1863 on the stationery of HMS Britannia, when he was a young lad, a private training for Navy service, and providing a very detailed account of the routine. At Madeira in May 1872, onboard HMS Woodlark, he recounts a departure in rough seas, arduous work, a nervous Captain Bogle, a recurring health issue with his legs, and an upcoming voyage to Bermuda. Crowe was at Valparaiso when he wrote home on 18 December 1878 from HMS Triumph, describing Robinson Crusoe island in the Juan Fernández group as "a lovely place, wild and rugged... the island is rented from the Chilians by a Suisse, a Mr. de Rodt... young fellow... we became good friends." Crowe was in South America for some time, and states that he would sailing up north to San Francisco after Christmas. [HMS Triumph also stopped at Montevideo on this voyage] One reference letter in manuscript, dated 27 September 1876, which reveals that Crowe, at the time a lieutenant, was preparing to serve onboard the frigate HMS Shah under the command of Admiral Algermon de Horsey, to take part in the Battle of Pacocha in Peru on 29 May 1877. Watercolour Drawings from South America and Africa, captioned and dated 1882-1884 - The Welsh Colony on the River Chupat in Patagonia - A harbour view of the historic quarter in Colonia Del Sacramento, Uruguay - The beach entrance to the ancient Santa Cruz de Anhatomirim Fortress on Anhatomirim Island in Brazil - Two views made at Brazil's Santa Catarina Island - A small landscape view of Mount Hermoso at Texada Point, situated at the entrance of Mount Hermoso in Bahia Blanca, Argentina - HMS Amethyst leaving Porto Grande Bay [Mindelo Bay] of São Vicente, Cape Verde, in 1882 - Two views of the rocky shores of Ascension Island - And, a pencil drawing illustrates the gravesite of Marcus McCausland of HMS Daphne who was killed at a village called Vianugha near Zanzibar, during the slave trade era. An official notice of appointment from the Admiralty naming Crowe as Lieutenant Commander of HMS Coquette, signed and dated 4 July 1883, together with original covers. The vessel departed from the Mediterranean Station for continued service in Egypt and Sudan. In February 1884, together with Lieutenant Fritz Eden Crowe, a landing party from the "Coquette" and two other ships went ashore at Suakin to assisted in the defence of that place by manning the fortifications [First Suakin Expedition]. Three documents concerning Crowe's position as Consul-General in Portuguese East Africa [Mozambique], including a manuscript copy of the announcement made in the Morning Post on 20 March 1900 to inform British subjects of Captain Crowe's new post as a colonial administrator, which states that Crowe "... has gone out to take up the important post of British Consul for the Delgoa District... He will find his duties onerous enough, but it will be a great advantage to have a man of his calibre at Lourenço Marques. It is notorious that for a long time past the administration of this nominally neutral part has been merely a department of the corrupt Government in Pretoria... Crowe... accompanied the late Vice Admiral Sir William Hewett... in the East Indies on his mission to Abyssinia in 1884." A manuscript letter written by Captain Crowe [1902] whilst onboard HMS President makes a plea for early retirement. The Foreign Office replies with a typescript letter dated 3 September 1903, honouring the request. On a personal note, a manuscript codicil signed on 15 October 1903 by Captain Crowe, only ten months before his death, reveals that he had an "infant daughter." The document also revokes his brother as his trustee and executor, appointing instead his sister Catherine Magnus and niece Hilda, who are also named guardians of the infant girl. HMS Coquette (1876) was a 4-gun screw gunboat, launched at Pembroke in 1876. She served in Egypt and Sudan from 1882-1889, first under the command of Lieutenant Lennox Napier to take part in the Egyptian War. In August 1883 a landing party from the "Coquette" and other ships, consisting of 565 officers and men, occupied the town of Ismailia in the Suez Canal after some slight fighting. The "Coquette" further assisted in the seizure of the Suez Canal, an operation necessary in order to secure a safe passage for the British troops who were going to use Ismailia as a base. To assist in the defence of Suakin, by manning British fortifications during First Suakin Expedition, in 1884 Vice Admiral Sir William Hewett landed 150 seamen and marines from his flagship the "Ellryallls," from the accompanying "Ranger" commanded by Captain Alexander Plantagenet Hastings, and from the gunboat "Coquette" commanded by Lieutenant Fritz Hauch Eden Crowe. The force was chiefly made up of troops from Egypt and returning drafts from India. In March 1885 a Naval Brigade from the "Coquette" and four other ships joined a field force of 13,000 men under Lieutenant General Sir Gerald Graham which marched out of Suakin. They occupied Hasheen on March 20th, where the Royal Marines specially distinguished themselves, and on the 22nd, under Major-General Sir J.C. MacNeill, they fought the battle of Tofrik, where the Arabs after a temporary advantage were repulsed with a loss of a thousand dead. The Naval Brigade in this action lost 7 killed and 5 wounded. The Naval Brigade burnt a number of huts in the khor Ghob, and re-embarked again on April 6th. In 1889 the "Conquette" was sold..

        Curiosities of Occult Literature. [Author's annotated copy].

      London, Printed for the Author. 1863 - 8°. XI, 275 pages plus 11 pages of a travel manuscript to Palestine in the rear of the volume (dates from 1862-1863). Original Hardcover (blindstamped cloth with gilt lettering on spine: "Occult Literature 1878 M.S.S.". Very good condition with only minor signs of wear. Exlibris of Marci H. Huthwaite to front pastedown. Interleaved volume with multiple annotations by the author. Cooke's Curiosities of Occult Literature, interleaved, and extensively annotated by the author. The binding is in worn contemporary brown cloth with blind decorations and brown coated endpapers. Both printed text and interleaved pages show marginal browning. Bibliographically the book is not simple: the title page dates from 1863, but the binding is dated to 1878. In the years in between, and afterwards, the author has filled the interleaved pages with his jottings and annotations, meriting the description 'M.S.S.' - manuscript - on the spine. The book itself purports to be 'a plain, unvarnished tale' written in defence of his legal work and pamphleteering on behalf of astrology. In effect the 58 interleaved pages and marginal annotations unpack and amplify the author's opinions as expressed in the printed text. Thus the author appends a two page long explanation of the court case that set in train the book's narrative opposite the title page. It's not possible to do justice to the range and eccentricity of the manuscript interventions but instead to point to some highlights. At one extreme the author expands on the printed text with additional factual information, for example giving the address of a London phrenologist, additionally noting that it was 'in Piccadilly opposite St James's Church where the author's mother was baptised.' At the opposite extreme there are lengthy narrative interventions such as an account of the death of Mr White, a 'martyr' to astrology in the Isle of Wight and a lengthy excursus against Britain's 'secret police'. The author debates Robert Owen's complicated relationship with the establishment particularly the alarm this 'socialist' caused with his 'appearance at the Levee of Queen V[ictoria]' The astrological theme runs consistently through the annotations with exercises in astrological physiognomy as well as astrological tables and analyses of many of the people referred to in the text. To the rear of the book is an eight page diary of a trip to Palestine, undertaken by the author in 1862-3.

        Daily Sea Journal of Marine Corporal Jacob F. Mentzer, September 11, 1862 - March 10, 1867.

      Small 4to. About 260 pages of manuscript entries, approximately 70,000 words This is a remarkable novel-length manuscript, both in its disciplined dailiness over 4 1/2 years, and because it was kept in such detail by an enlisted man. (Officers, being generally more educated, were more likely to keep written records of their activities.) In nearly microscopic script, Mentzer begins at the beginning - "Left Lancaster [PA - his home] Thursday Sept 11" and ends at the end of his tale "Sunday March 10, 67... Will soon close my log and track up to-- [left blank]" In between we are treated to a welter of people and places; events, sights, sounds, and sometimes even smells. He completes his training in Washington DC and sails on the USS Sabine in April, 1863, having a close encounter with a suspected Rebel ship and witnessing a terrible accident at one of the guns, in which two men lose their arms and one dies. In July he sails with a detachment of Marines for Morris Island off Charleston, where he experiences "continual shelling and bombarding all the time... we were well pleased to get out of it." After spending Christmas at home, Mentzer joins the newly launched sidewheel steamer USS Wateree for a long and eventful cruise down through the West Indies, along the eastern coast of South America, and an arduous voyage 'round the Horn into the Pacific. She doesn't reach San Francisco until mid-November 1864, and by the end of the month is in Mare Island for badly needed repairs. After this interlude they join the North Pacific Squadron, and Mentzer finishes out his tour in various ports up and down the west coast of Central and South America. The Civil War action takes up about 105 pages - less than half the journal. The rest is a highly detailed record of the daily comings and goings of men and ships, intrigues ashore and aboard, fights, desertions, drunkenness, illness and death, alternating with moments of great beauty, sometimes even moving Mentzer to poetical expression - he proudly dates and signs his best efforts, including a two page "Lay of Love." His port stops, particularly on the west coast and Patagonia add details, which build up, entry by entry, bit by bit, to create a rich and nuanced portrait of naval life before the mast in the mid-19th century. There are some surprises as well, such as the entry for Feb. 6th, 1867, when Mentzer and his mates visit a "photograph gallery" in Callao where they "sat for a doz. photographs each." Mentzer's hand is generally readable, though there are some places where the ink has faded and a strong light and patience are required to decipher the entries. The sewing is cracked in places, but overall the journal is in sound condition, bound in full sheep with the backstrip almost entirely worn away. Laid in are several interesting bits of ephemera, including recipes and cures, a formula for determining interest, two chits authorizing liberty, and a list of allowances for clothing.

        A two-volume Civil War scrapbook kept by an ardent Confederate woman from Petersburg, Virginia

      Petersburg, Virginia, 1863. Hardcover. Very good. Both volumes, apparently re-used geological journals, measure approximately 6" x 9" and contain a total of approximately 260 pages filled with newspaper clippings from Petersburg and Richmond, Virginia, including Petersburg's Daily Express, Richmond's Central Presbyterian, and The Richmond Sentinel. A number of ephemeral pieces are laid-in, tipped-in, and laid-on including: * A manuscript letter to Col. Manning dated 29 July 1862, in advance of the Seven Days Battles in defense of Richmond: "Camp Lee . . . A circular has just come from General [S. G.] French ordering the Brigade to move tomorrow at 7 o'clock a. m. with three days cooked rations in haversack. Orderd to move to the City ??? road where a guide will meet the Brigade from there to Stephensen's Mill on same road 7 miles from town there to await further orders. . . .", * A three-page manuscript poem "Dominoes, A Trophy of the Congress" by Mrs. Giles B. Cooke, a dramatic tribute describing the success of the iron-clad monitor against the wooden ships of the Union Navy, * An unused patriotic envelope with a full-cover Stars and Bars flag with "Jeff. Davis, Pres.t" and "Alex.r H. Stephens, Vice Pres.t" emblazoned on the red stripes, * A postally used envelope addressed to Louisa's daughter Lizzie at their Lombard Street home, A Confederate $20 note (Criswell T-67), and * A near indecipherable manuscript poem titled, "In Memorial: Respectfully dedicated to the Holders of Confederate Treasury Notes." The newspaper clippings provide a wealth of detailed war information that Mrs. Cameron thought worthy of preservation, much of it Virginia-related or pertaining to women, including: * A description of a skirmish by Captain McIlwaine, an officer from Petersburg serving with the 13th Virginia Cavalry, * An article titled the Death of Captain O. Jennings Wise and ex-Governor Wise's farewell to his son's remains (O Jennings Wise, a Captain of the Richmond Blues, was killed at Roanoke Island while defending Nag's Head, North Carolina), * The Obituary of Major H. K. Meade, Jr. of Petersburg, * Articles about Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson, * Articles related to military battles and actions including, Yankees in Rockingham County, the Evacuation of Norfolk, the Burning of Hampton, Lee's Maryland campaign, Morgan's Raid, the capture of Union vessels by the Steamer Sumter, the Battles of Fredericksburg, Port Republic, Second Manassas, Winchester, Corinth, Elk Horn (Pea Ridge), Fort Donelson, Murfreesboro, Nashville, New Orleans, Shiloh, etc., * The Field After the Battle, a graphic description of the carnage at 2nd Manassas: "If the reader can imagine . . . looking across the country in the direction from which we advanced . . . he will see dead and wounded lying by thousands as far as the eye can see. The woods are likewise full of them. . . . The ground is strewn not only with men, but arms, ammunition, provisions, haversacks, canteens and whatever else. . . . In many places you cannot walk three feet without being compelled to step over or around a corpse. . . . Today I came across a wounded Federal, who has lain for the last two days and nights, where, by extending his hand on either side, he could touch the dead bodies of five of his companions. One of these he was coolly using for a pillow. How callous men become by familiarity with the scenes of war." * An article about General Butler's imprisonment of a New Orlean's lady who had laughed at him in public, which probably led to his infamous General Order No. 28 declaring that any woman who insulted or laughed at a Union officer was to be arrested and treated as a common prostitute, * An article, Career of a Female Volunteer, about Mrs. Laura J. Williams who disguised herself as a male, assumed the name Henry Banford, and fought as a Lieutenant in an infantry company.* An article, A True Heroine, about Jane Sansome who guided General Forest's forces across an otherwise impassable river near Gadsden, Alabama. * An exhortation from a young Savannah woman, titled A Brave Girl, for all women of the South to take up her pledge "to exchange my hat and slippers for the boots and breeches of the next man who had rather run than fight, and promise, too that I never will disgrace it by cowardly conduct. If the men prove cowards at a time like this, it is high time for the women to show what they can do. . . ." * Many speeches and addresses by Jefferson Davis, Robert E. Lee, General Beauregard, and others, * Correspondence between Gen'ls Lee and Grant, relative to the treatment of Negro soldiers. . . ., * A letter from Lewis Cruger of South Carolina, to the Committees of Congress on the Confederate Flag submitting two alternate designs featuring "Star-Spangled Banners" that were intended to preclude "swindling Yankees to filch from us this grand Southern ballad [and free the song] from the unhallowed grasp of the Yankees."* An article announcing the adoption of the Confederacy's second national flag, the Stainless banner, that featured with the battle flag of the Army of the Potomac (Gen Johnston's flag) in the upper left corner of a field of white. Includes an explanation of why Gen Johnston designed his famous (or infamous, depending upon your point of view) battle flag as he did, * Approximately 50 poems and song lyrics including Song for Virginia, Printers of Virginia to Old Abe, Stonewall Jackson's Way, The Southern Cross, and The Merrimac and The Turtle (both tributes to the Confederate ironclad, and much, much more. About twelve leaves at the end of Volume 3 contain post-war articles about reunions, life during the war, the death of Stonewall Jackson's daughter, etc. The volumes are numbered 2 and 3 suggesting that one volume is missing. Their covers are well worn. Several leaves are stained, and that last few leaves in volume three have curled upper corners. All of the ephemeral pieces, except one of the poems that is stained and hard to read, are in nice shape. Following the war, Louisa's husband, William Evelyn Cameron became a leader in the Readjuster Party, a biracial Republican-leaning coalition formed during Virginia's turbulent post-racial Reconstruction era that pledged "to break the power of wealth and established privilege" among the planter class and to promote public education. He was elected Mayor of Petersburg in 1876 and Governor of Virginia in 1882. These scrapbooks were found in the attic of the old Cameron home in Petersburg.

      , 1863. 1863. Broadside, 7.5" x 9.25". Printed on lined paper, with the names of thirty- four men in pencil manuscript with their donation amounts. All names appear to be in the same handwriting. Light folds, a small chip to blank left edge. Very Good. Clement Vallandigham, two-term Ohio Congressman, was the most prominent and notorious of the Midwest Copperheads. General Burnside arrested him in 1863, on Lincoln's orders, for inflammatory anti-War and anti-Negro speeches. Found guilty by a military tribunal, he was banished to the Confederacy. But a few months later he turned up in Canada, campaigning in absentia as a Peace Democrat for Ohio's governorship in 1863. Ohio's Union Party energetically sought his defeat. This election broadside is a survival of that effort. Vallandigham lost by more than 100,000 votes.The names listed on this broadside were from Geauga County, Ohio, mostly from Russell Township and Chester Township. Most were farmers; Jacob Chase was a blacksmith; John Peirce a cattle broker; and Joseph Wooley a minister. Some other names include Artemas Robinson, Detroit Burnett, Warren Robinson, John H. Peirce, Jacob Chase, Samuel G. Perkins, Calvin Gates, Cyrus Millard, James Logan, T.C. Phinney, Allen Burgess, Joseph Wooley, W.C. Burgess, John King, Emory Petton, C.T Bailey, Samuel Robinson, Roswell Jones, Augustus Greenfield, B.F. Robinson, B. Matthews, A.M. Hall, H. Lansing, Taber Warren, A. Roby, N.L. Smith, and H.S.

In six months sixty thousand copies of the French edition had been sold and edition succeeded edition ...

Previous owner's ink signature to front pastedown of volumes I and III. Books housed in a custom cloth slipcase. A very good set."Encouraged by George Murray Smith, the publisher of Phantastes, to write novels, he wrote ëprose fiction of two kinds, one of which dealt with the mystical and psychic and the other described humble life in Scotlandí (DNB). David Elginbrod (1863), dedicated to the memory of Lady Byron, Adela Cathcart (1864), and The Portent: a Story of the Inner Vision of the Highlanders, Commonly Called the Second Sight (1864) were early works in the first category, which effectively challenged nineteenth-century materialism and contributed to the interest in psychic experiences." (Oxford Dictionary of National Biography). "...during this period he was struggling hard to write something as successful as Phantastes, but it was not until 1863 that he completed David Elginbrod, a long, didactic, and gothically romantic novel about a young man who has a career not dissimilar to MacDonald's own. His former publishers Smith and Elder turned it down, but it was read by Mrs Craik, who persuaded her own publishers Hurst and Blackett to take it on. It proved extremely popular and established MacDonald as a writer" (The Oxford Companion to Children's Literature).Not in Sadleir or Wolff.HBS 67836.$1,850

        Rare Surviving Papers of Forgotten Colonial Consul and Spymaster Royal Navy Captain Fritz Crowe

      England, Spain, South America, Africa, 1863-1903. Archive of papers and watercolour drawings pertaining to the naval career and foreign civil service of Captain Fritz Hauch Eden Crowe, featuring early watercolour views of Brazil and Patagoina, as well as a letter written at Valparaiso in Chile. The lot comprises 1 notice of appointment from the admiralty, 6 letters of correspondence - some of which concern his appointments and retirement and three being written and signed by him, 13 watercolour drawings including eight made in South America, 2 pencil drawings, 1 newspaper clipped map of the Amazon River, and 1 manuscript transcript of an announcement for his post as Consul-General of Lourenço Marques. Together with four documents related to his family's estate and his own final will. Manuscript documents and letters range in size from folio to thirty-twomo. Watercolours also range in size, the smallest measuring approximately 11,5 x 5 cm, the largest measuring approximately 20 x 15 cm. Providence: From the estate of Miss N. Crowe, an heiress of Captain Fritz Crowe's estate, so stated on a manuscript note amidst the papers, which reads, "English - Captain F.H.E. Crowe's Private papers & despatches & Miss N. Crowe's Norwegian inheritance (only papers in existence now)." Miss N. Crowe may be the "infant daughter" named in his will amendment. The note is written on paper watermarked 'Basildon Bond' which was not manufactured until 1911, by Millington & Co. This compendious naval career archive consists of the personal papers of an all-but-forgotten yet significant Royal Navy Officer and Colonial Administrator of Norwegian descent, Captain Fritz Hauch Eden Crowe. Not much appears elsewhere as far as archives or even documentation, in spite of his continuous service in the Pacific and South America in the 1870s, providing fortifications at Ismailia on the Suez Canal in August 1883 during the occupation of Egypt, participating in the First Suakin Expedition 1884 in the Sudan, and contributing greatly to espionage efforts and the passage of arms and munitions, as Consul-General and Director of Intelligence in Portuguese East Africa during the Second Boer War. Captain Fritz Hauch Eden Crowe, RN, CB, (1849-1904) was born in Christiania, Norway. Little else about his private life is known, although the present lot of documents provides a genealogical record and further reveals that he had a daughter in his last living year. He lived a short but accomplished life, serving with the British Royal Navy for the majority of his adult life, then taking an appointment as a Consul-General in Portuguese East Africa for two years, ending his term shortly before his death. He is also remembered for two valuable reports on whale fishing in Iceland. In 1863 he completed his cadet training for the Navy. In 1871 he was a sub-lieutenant on the Victoria and Albert, 1872 onboard HMS Woodlark in the Mediterranean, in 1876 served on HMS Shah in Peru; in 1878 with HMS Triumph he was again in South America - this time in Brazil and Patagonia. In 1881, by then having the rank of Lieutenant, he was on the Royal Navy Training Ship "HMS Implacable" at the naval port in Devonport, Devon, England. In 1883, he and his crew from "HMS Coquette" contributed to the British campaigns in the Sudan. He retired from the Navy with the rank of Captain on 13 October 1896 due to health reasons. On 2 March 1900 Captain Fritz Hauch Eden Crowe, RN, was appointed His Majesty's Consul-General at Lourenco Marques, in Portuguese East Africa, [now Maputo, Mozambique], arriving and replacing Carnegie Ross in April. At the time, munitions of war and contraband were being trans-shipped and smuggled through Mozambique to the South African Republic. He held this post until 1902. He is also on the list of 1902 Coronation Honours. According to the present documents, he became the father of an infant girl circa 1902-1903, leaving her in the care of his sister upon his death on 11 August 1904. Nothing is mentioned of the child's mother whose identity remains unknown. Captain Crowe was an effective and commanding diplomat, as well as a determined Chief of Intelligence, although nowhere in any of the Lourenco Marques (LM) documents of the period is he described either as a diplomat or as a station chief. This may have been to protect his identity, as he undertook risky tasks and navigated delicate situations as a spymaster and director of secret service operations for the Foreign Office. His intelligence work included espionage , misinformation and propaganda, detecting contraband, coordinating the debriefing of spies (generally Africans), planning and overseeing covert military operations in enemy territory and the Border Area. He was also involved in the clandestine importation and passage of arms and munitions of war under protection of a Secret Anglo-Portuguese Treaty of 14 October 1899, which enabled the shipment of armaments through Mozambique into the South African Republic. He was taught the cypher system which had arranged by Lt-Col A. E. Sandbach, an Assistant Adjutant-General (Intelligence), which they used to gather military intelligence in the Transvaal, to communicate on the transfer of armaments, Boer activity, and more. Crowe sent regular intelligence diaries to the Foreign Office and copies to the High Commissioner in Cape Town, the Governor of Natal and army headquarters, also to General Buller and Field Marshal Lord Roberts. The archive includes: Three signed manuscript letters by Captain Fritz Hauch Eden Crowe including Victorian era correspondence penned at sea: The earliest is penned at the Eastmans RN Academy in March 1863 the next, from Portland in April 1863 on the stationery of HMS Britannia, when he was a young lad, a private training for Navy service, and providing a very detailed account of the routine. At Madeira in May 1872, onboard HMS Woodlark, he recounts a departure in rough seas, arduous work, a nervous Captain Bogle, a recurring health issue with his legs, and an upcoming voyage to Bermuda. Crowe was at Valparaiso when he wrote home on 18 December 1878 from HMS Triumph, describing Robinson Crusoe island in the Juan Fernández group as "a lovely place, wild and rugged... the island is rented from the Chilians by a Suisse, a Mr. de Rodt... young fellow... we became good friends." Crowe was in South America for some time, and states that he would sailing up north to San Francisco after Christmas. [HMS Triumph also stopped at Montevideo on this voyage] One reference letter in manuscript, dated 27 September 1876, which reveals that Crowe, at the time a lieutenant, was preparing to serve onboard the frigate HMS Shah under the command of Admiral Algermon de Horsey, to take part in the Battle of Pacocha in Peru on 29 May 1877. Watercolour Drawings from South America and Africa, captioned and dated 1882-1884 •The Welsh Colony on the River Chupat in Patagonia •A harbour view of the historic quarter in Colonia Del Sacramento, Uruguay •The beach entrance to the ancient Santa Cruz de Anhatomirim Fortress on Anhatomirim Island in Brazil •Two views made at Brazil's Santa Catarina Island •A small landscape view of Mount Hermoso at Texada Point, situated at the entrance of Mount Hermoso in Bahia Blanca, Argentina •HMS Amethyst leaving Porto Grande Bay [Mindelo Bay] of São Vicente, Cape Verde, in 1882 •Two views of the rocky shores of Ascension Island •And, a pencil drawing illustrates the gravesite of Marcus McCausland of HMS Daphne who was killed at a village called Vianugha near Zanzibar, during the slave trade era. An official notice of appointment from the Admiralty naming Crowe as Lieutenant Commander of HMS Coquette, signed and dated 4 July 1883, together with original covers. The vessel departed from the Mediterranean Station for continued service in Egypt and Sudan. In February 1884, together with Lieutenant Fritz Eden Crowe, a landing party from the "Coquette" and two other ships went ashore at Suakin to assisted in the defence of that place by manning the fortifications [First Suakin Expedition]. Three documents concerning Crowe's position as Consul-General in Portuguese East Africa [Mozambique], including a manuscript copy of the announcement made in the Morning Post on 20 March 1900 to inform British subjects of Captain Crowe's new post as a colonial administrator, which states that Crowe "... has gone out to take up the important post of British Consul for the Delgoa District... He will find his duties onerous enough, but it will be a great advantage to have a man of his calibre at Lourenço Marques. It is notorious that for a long time past the administration of this nominally neutral part has been merely a department of the corrupt Government in Pretoria... Crowe... accompanied the late Vice Admiral Sir William Hewett... in the East Indies on his mission to Abyssinia in 1884." A manuscript letter written by Captain Crowe [1902] whilst onboard HMS President makes a plea for early retirement. The Foreign Office replies with a typescript letter dated 3 September 1903, honouring the request. On a personal note, a manuscript codicil signed on 15 October 1903 by Captain Crowe, only ten months before his death, reveals that he had an "infant daughter." The document also revokes his brother as his trustee and executor, appointing instead his sister Catherine Magnus and niece Hilda, who are also named guardians of the infant girl. HMS Coquette (1876) was a 4-gun screw gunboat, launched at Pembroke in 1876. She served in Egypt and Sudan from 1882-1889, first under the command of Lieutenant Lennox Napier to take part in the Egyptian War. In August 1883 a landing party from the "Coquette" and other ships, consisting of 565 officers and men, occupied the town of Ismailia in the Suez Canal after some slight fighting. The "Coquette" further assisted in the seizure of the Suez Canal, an operation necessary in order to secure a safe passage for the British troops who were going to use Ismailia as a base. To assist in the defence of Suakin, by manning British fortifications during First Suakin Expedition, in 1884 Vice Admiral Sir William Hewett landed 150 seamen and marines from his flagship the "Ellryallls," from the accompanying "Ranger" commanded by Captain Alexander Plantagenet Hastings, and from the gunboat "Coquette" commanded by Lieutenant Fritz Hauch Eden Crowe. The force was chiefly made up of troops from Egypt and returning drafts from India. In March 1885 a Naval Brigade from the "Coquette" and four other ships joined a field force of 13,000 men under Lieutenant General Sir Gerald Graham which marched out of Suakin. They occupied Hasheen on March 20th, where the Royal Marines specially distinguished themselves, and on the 22nd, under Major-General Sir J.C. MacNeill, they fought the battle of Tofrik, where the Arabs after a temporary advantage were repulsed with a loss of a thousand dead. The Naval Brigade in this action lost 7 killed and 5 wounded. The Naval Brigade burnt a number of huts in the khor Ghob, and re-embarked again on April 6th. In 1889 the "Conquette" was sold.

        On Liberty

      Ticknor and Fields, Boston 1863 - First American Edition. Octavo, original brown cloth. "The subject of this Essay is not the so-called Liberty of the Will, so unfortunately opposed to the misnamed doctrine of Philosophical Necessity; but Civil, or Social Liberty: the nature and limits of the power which can be legitimately exercised by society over the individual." On Liberty was a greatly influential and well received work, although it did not go without criticism. Some attacked it for its apparent discontinuity with Utilitarianism, while others criticized its vagueness. The ideas presented in On Liberty have remained the basis of much liberal political thought. It has remained in print continuously since its initial publication. To this day, a copy of On Liberty is passed to the president of the British Liberal Democrats as a symbol of office. A copy of the same book is also presented to and then held by the president of the Liberal Party as a symbol of office. Very Good attractive copy, spine ends rubbed.
