        Race Baiting Takes Center Stage in the 1864 Presidential Election

      Philadelphia, PA 1863 - Broadside. Democratic Catechism of Negro Equality. Philadelphia, Pa., July 4, 1863., 6 1/2 x 9 in. Republicans counter the ridiculous charge that Lincoln favored African Americans over white Americans. Instead, they use many individual instances to assert an equally absurd claim of a long history of Democratic support of African American rights. Complete TranscriptDEMOCRATIC CATECHISM OF NEGRO EQUALITY Who said that all men are created equal? Thomas Jefferson, the Father of Democracy. Who gave the negroes the right of suffrage in New York; The Democratic party. Who presided over the convention which gave this privilege to negroes? Martin Van Buren, a Democrat. Who married a negro woman, and by her had mulatto children? Richard M. Johnson, a good Democrat. Who elected Richard M. Johnson Vice President of the United States? The Democratic party. If President Van Buren had died, and Richard M. Johnson had become President; who would have become the Democratic mistress of the White House? This same negro woman Who made the negro a citizen of the State of Maine? The Democratic party. Who enacted a similar law in Massachusetts? The Democratic party. Who gave the negro a right to vote in New Hampshire? The Democratic party. Who permitted every colored person owning $250 in New York to become a voter? A General Assembly, purely Democratic. Who repealed the laws of Ohio which required negroes to give bonds and security before settling in that State? The Democratic party. Who made mulattoes legal voters in Ohio? The Supreme Court of which Rueben Wood was Chief Justice. What became of Rueben Wood? The Democratic party elected him governor three times, and he is still a leader of the Democratic party. Who helped give free negroes the right to vote in Tennessee under her Constitution of 1796? General Jackson. Was General Jackson a good Democrat? He generally passed as such. Who with the above facts, and many others, staring them in the face, are continually whining about "negro suffrage" and negro equality? The Democratic party. Who voted against the White Soldier voting in Penn'a in 1864? The Democratic party. All these things were done by Democrats, and yet they deny being in favor of negro equality, and charge it upon the Republicans-just like the thief who cries "stop thief" the loudest.N.B. -Send your Democratic friend one of these Valuable Documents. Sold Wholesale and Retail at Johnson's, No. 18 North Tenth Street, Philadelphia, Pa. See his Political Songs.Historical Background Arguments over white supremacy found fertile ground during the 1864 presidential election. Lincoln expected to lose the contest and faced challenges from "Copperhead" Peace Democrats who sought an immediate end to the war. They encouraged Union soldiers to desert, Confederate P.O.W.'s to escape, and met with Confederate agents. With the backing of important newspapers such as the Chicago Times and the New York Journal of Commerce, Copperheads relentlessly sought to influence public opinion against the war. In the middle of the Civil War and after Lincoln had signed the Emancipation Proclamation, it was easy for to attack Lincoln on racial grounds. Anti-Lincoln propaganda accused him of untoward preference for African Americans at the expense of whites, and election literature suggested miscegenation, despoiling the Union to free slaves, or being of African descent himself.Both Democrats and Republicans played the race card in 1864. In this case, Republican propagandists try to turn the tables on Democratic arguments, laying out a sardonic case that the Democrats were the actual party fighting for African American civil rights. The author of this broadside lists the many laws and examples of racial progress presented by the Democratic party-from voting rights, to state citizenship, to the possibility of a black First Lady. However, the absurd charges did not stick. "The consistently racist policies of Pennsylvania's Democr. (See website for full description)

        President Lincoln & His Most Profitable Client, the Illinois Central Railroad

      1863 - Autograph Letter Signed "A. Lincoln" as President, to Secretary of War Edwin M. Stanton, May 23, 1863. "Executive Mansion, Washington" stationery, 2 pp. on one sheet, 7 3/4 x 9 3/4 in. With front panel of original envelope, to which Lincoln has added an Autograph Note Signed, and Stanton has also added an Autograph Note Signed. Less than six years after he successfully sued the Illinois Central for legal fees, President Lincoln faces another problem with the railroad, now vital for the transportation of Union troops. In another dispute over payments, he tells his Secretary of War, "If I had the leisure which I have not, I believe I could settle it; but prima facie it appears to me we better settle the account ourselves." TranscriptExecutive Mansion Washington, May 23, 1863Hon Secy of War My dear Sir,In order to construct the Illinois Central Railroad, a large grant of land was made by the United States to the State of Illinois, which land was again given to the Railroad Company by the State, in certain provisions of the Charter. By the U.S. grant, certain previleges [sic]were attempted to be secured from the contemplated Railroad to the U.S., and by the Charter certain per centage of the income of the road was to be from time to time paid to the State of Illinois. At the beginning of the present war the Railroad did certain carrying for the U.S. for which it claims pay; and, as I understand, the U.S. claims that at least part of this the road was bound to do without pay. Though attempts have been made to settle the matter, it remains unsettled; meanwhile the Road refuses to pay the per-centage to the State. This delay is working badly; and I understand the delay exists because of there being no definite decision whether the U.S. will settle its own account with the Railroad, or will allow the State to settle it, & account to the State for it. If I had the leisure which I have not, I believe I could settle it; but prima facie it appears to me we better settle the account ourselves, because that will save us all question as to whether the State deals fairly with us in the settlement of our account with a third party - the R.R. I wish you would see Mr. Butler, late our State Treasurer, and see if something definite can not be done in the case. Yours truly, A Lincoln"Historical BackgroundLincoln had a long prior relationship with the Illinois Central Railroad. In 1851, although not a member of the state legislature, he participated in the struggle over the passage of the railroad's charter. Its 705 mile-long track was completed in 1856, making it the longest in the country. Lincoln represented the Illinois Central in 45 cases in the 1850s, mostly as defense attorney. The Mr. Butler mentioned was William Butler (1797-1876). He and Lincoln became friends when Butler was Clerk of the Sangamon County Circuit Court (1836-1841) and Lincoln a circuit lawyer. Butler later served as Illinois State Treasurer (1859-1862).Illinois had granted the railroad an exemption for all state taxes on the condition that it pay an annual "charter tax." However, the McLean County assessor levied a $428.57 tax on the railroad's 118 acres in that county. The railroad claimed that the General Assembly act chartering the railroad exempted it from such taxes. The railroad retained Lincoln and sued to prevent the County from selling railroad land to pay taxes. The parties agreed to go to the Illinois Supreme Court, where the only question would be whether the county had a lawful right to tax the railroad's property. In Illinois Central RR v. McLean County, Illinois & Parke, Justice Scates ruled that the charter was constitutional and that the legislature and the state could exempt property from taxation. Lincoln received $200 for his services in both courts. After consulting with fellow attorneys, Lincoln told the railroad he deserved more.

        The plain of Troy described : and the identity of the Ilium of Homer with the new Ilium of Strabo proved, by comparing the poet's narrative with the present topography [Presentation Copy]

      Edinburgh: Adam and Charles Black , MDCCCLXIII [1863]. First Edition thus. Decorative Cloth. Near Fine+. Revised (and Definitive) Edition. Tall 8vo: xviii,[2],224pp, with four folding maps and plans and numerous illustrations in the text. Original publisher's maroon decorative cloth, paneled and textured in blind and stamped in gilt on spine and upper cover; pale yellow endpapers; edges untrimmed; bookplate of Pat Murray on front paste down. Inscribed "From the Author" on the half-title. An excellent copy, the handsome binding tight and square, pages virtually free of foxing and stains (excepting end papers and half-title, which are lightly spotted), maps and plans properly folded and without tears. By the mid-19th century, a number of amateur archaeologists, including, most prominently, Frank Calvert and MacLaren, had identified Hisarlik (or Hissarlik), in Turkey, as the site of ancient Troy, but their pioneering work was overshadowed in the 1870s by the great German amateur archaeologist Heinrich Schliemann. MacLaren had published A Dissertation on the Topography of the Plain of Troy as early as 1822, and in the early 1860s, after visiting Hisarlik, he positively identified it as the site of Ancient Troy in his The Plain of Troy Described, often identified as a reissue, or second edition, of A Dissertation. But in the book's preface, MacLaren explains, "Two-thirds of the present edition either consist of new matter, or have been rewritten; and I have not therefore put 'second edition' on the title-page."

        [FOUR PRO-UNION CIVIL WAR BROADSIDES FROM THE FIELD PRESS OF G.H. SUTHERLAND]

      New Bern, N.C., 1863. Four broadsides, varying sizes. Three smaller broadsides with a few small marginal chips and short closed tears, light foxing and dampstaining. Larger broadside somewhat tanned, previously folded, slightly chipped at edges, with a portion at upper right margin replaced, not affecting printed portion. Good plus. Four extremely rare broadsides from the field press of G.H. Sunderland, "of the 92nd N.Y.S.V., who was taken prisoner at the battle of 'Fair Oaks,' and confined as a 'prisoner of war' during the summer and part of the autumn of 1862." Produced while in camp at Fort Anderson, near New Bern, N.C., the broadsides print pro- Union and anti-slavery lyrics to three songs composed by Sutherland, and a lengthier series of verses lamenting the plight of captured Union soldiers in Confederate prison camps. In the "Negro Emancipation Song," Sutherland writes in the voice of the emancipated, expressing gratitude to Abraham Lincoln, and referencing the inhumane treatment of slaves, including separating children from their mothers, whippings, lack of education, sexual abuse, and the slave trade: "Now we've been slaves for many years, / Ne'er tasted freedom's joys, / So please excuse us, dear 'white folks,' / If we make a little noise. / Our shouts will reach 'fair Britton's shore,' / Then echo back again; / Well done old 'Father Abraham,' you've washed out that 'foul stain.'" The song "Shelling a Sutler," pokes fun at Southern merchant living near Sutherland's camp, who believes himself to be in the Confederate army: "He calls himself an 'Officer,' / Because they with him drink, / but if he lacks the 'shoulder straps' / he goes with them to 'sink.'" "The Roll Call of Co. B" celebrates the army life of Company B in the 92nd New York Volunteers: "So around, Company B, and into line fall, / For the drum is now beating the morning roll call, / The day is fast dawning and ne'er let it be said, / that the sun ever caught a brave solider in bed." The largest and longest broadside songsheet, "A Prison Song," recounts at length the tale of the capture of Sutherland and other men from his unit at the battle of Fair Oaks, describes the conditions of prison life, and decries the southern cause: "We are a ragged set of men, / This prison has no charms; / But 'Uncle Sam' will own his boys, / and give us all a farm. / I long to see my friends again, / Of which I fondly dreampt [sic]; / But I'd rather see my country free, / and old Jeff pulling hemp." In the three smaller printings, song lyrics are printed in two columns, with the title and a woodcut portrait of Sutherland at the head of the text, all within an ornamental border. Lyrics to "A Prison Song" are printed in four columns, with two American flags surrounding the title. These broadsides are exceedingly rare. The three smaller songsheets are apparently unrecorded, while OCLC locates only one field press copy of "A Prison Song," at Brown University.

        Constantinople During the Crimean War

      Richard Bentley, London 1863 - Large 8vo. pp. xvi, 500, illustrated with four chromolithograph plates. Publisher's green cloth, skillfully re-cased. Mild spine slant, light edgewear to boards, contemporary ownership signature. Lady Hornby and her husband Sir Edmund Grimani Hornby arrived at Constantinople in September 1855 in a troop ship laden with packages "for Miss Nightingale at Scutari." Over the following year, while Sir Edmund did his work-negotiating a British loan to Turkey-Lady Hornby spent time with her peers at embassy parties (which are described in detail, including the first time an Ottoman sultan attended an embassy ball), but also learned the language, noted political gossip and news from the front, and walked the streets in both Constantinople and Therapia (on the Black Sea), making careful observations of the landscape, architecture, and Turkish life and custom. The illustrations (all of domestic scenes) are by fellow British traveler Mary Adelaide Walker, who arrived in Turkey around the same time as the Hornbys and lived in the East for the next forty years.

        Rukovodstvo k risovaniiu akvarel’iu ili vodianymi kraskami bez pomoshchi uchitelia [Manual for painting in aquarelle or watercolors without an instructor’s help]. Contemporary manuscript copy.

      [St. Petersburg] 1863 - [Russian Empire, probably St. Petersburg, 1863-64). Folio (21.5 × 17.5 cm). Half red leather; marbled boards; original ink manuscript to rectos and versos; 198, Vi pp. With three color tables bound with the text and a list of color names in Russian, French and English on seven folding leaves bound after the text, only partially colored in. Rebacked, with repair to binding and raised boards (with lighter card stock); text lightly toned. A contemporary manuscript copy of Alexander Maslov’s 1857 work, which was evidently the first Russian guide to watercolor painting. Maslov’s book was never reprinted and is not recorded in KVK or OCLC. It introduces would-be artists to basic techniques of drawing and painting, explaining different types of perspective, color harmony, mixing and reflection (reflet). He describes the required tools in great depth, detailing suitable brands of paper, pencils, brushes and pigments, listing leading brands of the day, such as Faber and Mordan, and naming their Russian suppliers. Particular attention is given to the properties, advantages and shortcomings of various color pigments, followed by a list of 108 basic colors and hues (together with a partially colored table). Other chapters present the art of composition, sketching and painting. Maslov describes how to depict objects such as fruits and flowers, human anatomy and faces, landscapes and more complex compositions, often in astonishing and amusing detail: for instance, he provides pointers for drawing nineteen essential flower types. The bound-in color charts provide the English and French names of the main colors, as well pointers on the best brands. According to the embossed stamp on the title page, the manuscript was prepared by one Viktor A. Vinster, of whom we can find no trace. Not in KVK, OCLC. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Journal of the Discovery of the Source of the Nile

      Edinburgh and London: William Blackwood and Sons, , 1863. Octavo. Original brown cloth, title gilt to the spine, blind panelling to the boards and gilt block of the King of Uganda to the front, fore edge untrimmed. Photogravure portrait frontispiece, one other similar portrait, 24 further plates and 46 illustrations to the text, mostly after Speke or Grant, and 2 maps, one full-page, the other folding in an end-pocket. Fraying to spine-ends, tips bumped, rear inner hinge cracked, the occasional small spot, browning to pp. 162-3 and 530-1 from page-marker. A good copy. First edition. Dispatched by Burton from Tabora to verify reports of a large body of water to the north of Lake Tanganyika, Speke made the discovery of Victoria Nyanza on 3 August 1858 and immediately pronounced it to be the source of the Nile. Once back in London the strained relationship between the two explorers was finally sundered by the acclaim greeting Speke's discovery, which Burton felt to be premature. In 1860 Speke returned to Africa to confirm his conclusions, and in spite of complicated diplomacy involved in crossing the various kingdoms of the interior, eventually located "the point where the Nile issues from Lake Victoria?which he reached on 28 July 1862 and which he named Ripon Falls. This was the crowning moment of the expedition and of Speke's career" (ODNB). Unfortunately Speke's companion James Grant, suffering from an ulcerated leg, had returned northward, so the discovery was unverified; nor did the party follow the Nile stream closely as they travelled north to Bunyoro, allowing critics to question whether Speke's river really was the Nile. On his return to London Speke's findings almost immediately came under fire, not least from Burton, who questioned whether he had found the same lake from the north as he had seen from the south. The British Association arranged a public debate to be held in Bath on 16 September 1864, but Speke was found dead the previous day, apparently killed in a hunting accident. The circumstances of his death, his dispute with Burton, and his somewhat slapdash record-keeping, have conspired to deny Speke the prominence of Stanley, Burton or Livingstone. But "the importance of Speke's discoveries can hardly be overestimated. In discovering the 'source reservoir' of the Nile he succeeded in solving the 'problem of all ages' ? He and Grant were the first Europeans to cross Equatorial Eastern Africa, and thereby gained for the world a knowledge of rather more than eight degrees of latitude, or about five hundred geographical miles, in a portion of Eastern Africa previously totally unknown" (idem).

      Nûngme, 1863. 152 sider + (6). Indb. med brun lærredsryg og marmorerede permer. Oversat titel: Om dyrene. Et pænt og rent ex. med lidt slid på kanter og hjørner. Med Knud Rasmussens exlibris på indersiden af bindet. Sprog: grønlandsk. Samuel Petrus Kleinschmidt var en tysk herrnhutermissionær og sprogforsker i Grønland. Han blev født i Grønland, hvor hans fader var herrnhutisk missionær. Kleinschmidt udnyttede sit grundige kendskab til grønlænderne og Grønland i forbindelse med et stort videnskabeligt arbejde, der gik i mange retninger. Han foretog mangeårige, pålidelige, meteorologiske observationer, og med få midler, men et udmærket skarpt blik udarbejdede han fortrinlige kort såvel i detaljer over dele af Sydgrønland som over hele Grønland. Samuel Kleinschmidt dokumenterede det grønlandske sprog, da han udgav en grønlandsk-tysk ordbog, en grønlandsk-dansk Ordbog 1871, desuden en grammatik (i 1851) og han formulerede en grønlandsk retskrivning, der siden blev taget alment i anvendelse. Han foretog også den første oversættelse af Bibelen til grønlandsk.

        Special orders No. 139 [...] the following officers, non-commissioned officers and privates are announced as the officers of the First Regiment of West Tennessee Infantry of African descent...

      Memphis: Headquarters, 16th Army Corps, 1863. First Edition. Special Order establishing the first unit of colored troops in Tennessee, some months following the Union's victory at the Battle of Memphis, which effectively ended Con- federate control of the state. The First Regiment West Tennessee Infantry (AD) mustered in June of 1863; in early 1864 they were combined with the First Alabama Infantry (colored) to form the 59th Colored Infantry. The unit fought with distinction in a number of major battles, notably the Battle of Brice's Crossroads, Missis- sippi, which though a crushing defeat for the Union was one of the first battles in which a regiment composed entirely of former slaves saw direct action. The emancipation of enslaved African-Americans that followed the Union's occupation of Tennessee was, at best, a double-edged sword. In his Brief Sketch of the Organization and Services of the Fifty-Ninth Regiment (Dayton: 1883), the unit's Commanding Officer Rob- ert Cowden recounts the methods by which colored troops were raised in Tennessee [and, presumably, in other occupied slave states]: "...recruits were collect- ed from plantations and from camps...all the field and staff, commissioned and non-commissioned, as well as all the line officers and first sergeants of companies, were white men...The plan for 'persuading' recruits while it could hardly be called the shot-gun policy was equal- ly as convincing, and never failed to get the 'recruit.' The negroes were held as property by their masters, and were appropriated as such, along with mules and horses, which were put in the same list and confiscated as a 'mil- itary necessity'...in this way, in the space of six weeks, the entire command was made up, without the expense of a single dollar to the Government..." The current broadside descends from the estate of Lt.- Col. Robert E. Phillips, who was second in command of the West Tennessee Colored Infantry until his retire- ment in December of 1863. It is offered together with two other 19th-century documents relating to Phillips's military career and later life, including an 1884 quartz mining claim in Placer County, California, where Phil- lips presumably lived out his days. This document rare; not separately catalogued in the collection of any OCLC member institution, and ap- parently not reproduced of the Official Records of the War of Rebellion. Broadsheet 7-1/2" x 5", printed on both sides of a single leaf. Old folds; discoloration and scattered foxing; a Good, well-preserved example.

These will all be printers anomalies and warrant further research. the back lists up to number 50 in the series as do the previous listed titles.) Notes* Ann S. Stephens 1810-1886. The term "dime novel" originated with Stephens' Malaeska, the Indian Wife of the White Hunter, printed in the first book in Beadle & Adams': Beadle's Dime Novels series, dated June 9, 1860. The novel was a reprint of Stephens' earlier serial that appeared in the Ladies' Companion magazine in February, March, and April 1839. Later the Grolier Club listed Malaeska as the most influential book of 1860.

      Leipzig, Verlagsbuchhandlung von J. J. Weber, 1863. Vollständige Ausgabe in Ganzfranz-Handeinband der Zeit: Ganzleder / Leder / Gldr / Ldr im Format 10 x 14,4 cm mit Ganzgoldschnitt, Rückentitel in Goldprägung, Zeichenband, 5 erhabene Bünde, Lederhäubchen, handgestochenes Kopfband, Zeichenband, Liniendekoration des Rückens und beider Deckel in Goldprägung, Innenkantenvergoldung und farbige Schmuckvorsätze, im Schuber, 442 Seiten, Schrift: Fraktur. Signierter Meistereinband von Johs. Larink Hamburg. - \"Warum handgebunden? - Die wesentlichsten Vorzüge des guten Handbandes sind: Die einzelnen Druckbögen werden mit der Hand nach dem Schriftspiegel gefalzt. Die Bogenränder werden dadurch zwar ungleich, aber das Satzbild steht gerade. Um infolge der ungleichen Ränder ein späteres zu starkes Beschneiden mit der Maschine zu vermeiden, werden die Bogen einzeln, vorne und unten, mit der Pappschere auf ein Mittelmaß rauh beschnitten. Dadurch wird der Druckrand weitestgehend geschont. Als erste und letzte Lage wird dem Buche zum Schutze eine leere Papierlage hinzugefügt, welche mit einem feinen Leinen- oder echten Japanpapierfalz versehen ist. Geheftet wird der Handband nach sorgfältiger Auswahl des Heftzwirnes auf echten erhabenen oder aufgedrehten flachen Bünden und auf Pergamentriemchen (welche beim Pergamentbande durch den Rücken gezogen werden). Oben wird das Buch beschnitten und erhält nicht nur der Schönheit willen einen Goldschnitt, sondern diese feine Metallschicht schützt vielmehr die dem Lichte und Staub am meisten ausgesetzte Schnittfläche vor deren schädlichen Einflüssen. Die Deckel werden in einem tiefen Falz angesetzt, mit den Bünden nach außen. Ein Herausreißen aus der Decke ist somit nur unter Zuhilfenahme von Werkzeug möglich. Zum Kapital wird kein schlappes maschinengewebtes Bändchen verwendet, sondern das Kapital wird von Hand mit dem Buchblock umstochen, gibt dadurch dem Rücken einen festen Abschluß und bietet zugleich dem späteren Ledereinschlag (\"Häubchen\") die Unterlage. Als Einbandmaterial kommen sumachgares, lichtechtes Saffian, Kalbleder, vereinzelt auch Rindsleder, ferner naturelles und weißes Schweinsleder sowie Kalbspergament zur Verwendung. Ein mit der Hand hergestelltes, dazupassendes Überzugpapier sowie Handvergoldung oder Blinddruck am Rücken ergänzen das Werk nach außen. Ein solcher Einband entspricht allen Anforderungen, die an einen Gebrauchsband gestellt werden können.\" Aus einem alten Prospekt von Richard Hönn, ehemals Handbinderei des Verlages Albert Langen, Werkstatt für feine Buchbinder- und Lederarbeiten in München, Dienerstrasse 14. - Erstausgabe in sehr guter Erhaltung (einige Bünde mit minimalen Gebrauchsspuren, sonst tadellos) - Lederhandband, Lederausgabe, Lederband, Bibliophilie, Handeinband, deutsche Kunstbuchbinderei / Buchkunst im 19.
