[Pennsylvania Freedmen's Relief Association]
Philadelphia: Merrihew & Thompson, 1863. First edition. Original paper wraps stitched at spine. Gently toned and with a small snag causing paper loss to the rear wrap and final two leaves with loss to the words "help" and "Next." Else an internally clean and complete copy of this rare piece of African American history documenting the efforts of the Port Royal Experiment following the area's abandonment by former slaveholders. Scarce at institutions and in the trade, the present is the only copy on the market. Beginning in 1861, as the Union army began liberating the coast of South Carolina near the harbor of Port Royal, abolitionists initiated a program in which emancipated families worked land abandoned by former slaveholders. Known as the Port Royal Experiment, the program moved into full force in 1863 as the war ended, making it possible for freedmen to take full possession of the land as citizens. The present report was the first one compiled by the Philadelphia Freedmen's Relief Association; and it documents the difficult realities of transitioning a community from slavery to freedom. Providing training, food, and clothing to so many people -- even those who had money -- was a challenge in a region that had suffered wartime damage to infrastructure. Nevertheless, the report reveals the commitment on both sides to build up and help the Port Royal Experiment succeed; if it did, it was not only aid to those in South Carolina but could serve as an assistance model to other new communities.

NOOTEN, Berthe Hoola van.
Brussels and Leipzig Émile Tarnier, 1863. First edition. folio (59.5 x 45 cm), 40 chromolithographed plates by P. Depannemaeker after Hoola van Nooten, some heightened in gum arabic; contemporary green half morocco gilt, all edges gilt, a fine copy. Rare First Edition, beautifully bound, with the fine decorative plates very clean. They depict a mixture of indigenous, naturalised and introduced plants, chosen principally for their eye-catching beauty. In the preface Berthe Hoola van Nooten (1840-1885) states that she produced this book in order to clear a debt incurred through family misfortune, and 'provide by labour the wants of a numerous family'. Berthe Hoola van Nooten (1840-1885 produced the present work as a heroic response to circumstances which left her on Java, a widow in her early twenties with a family to support and little money, certainly not enough to pay for her family's passage home to Belgium. 'Aware of the vogue in Europe for exotic flora, she decided to take advantage of her enforced exile and put to use the skill at flower painting that she had no doubt acquired as a girl. Thus she prepared forty magnificent plates for Fleurs, fruits et feuillages choisis de l'Ile de Java. [van Nooten] was clearly a more than competent artist, for the splendid tropical plants, with their lush foliage, vividly coloured flowers and exotic fruit, have been depicted with great skill. She managed to accentuate the splendour of each species by adopting a style that combined great precision and clarity with a touch of neo-Baroque exuberance, revelling in the rich forms and colo … [Click Below for Full Description]

Charles Godfrey Leland]
Frederick Leypoldt, 1863. This comic satire ridiculing northerners who opposed the Civil War was the creation of Charles Godfrey Leland, late editor of the comic weekly Vanity Fair and current editor of the definantly radical Continental Monthly. Though he denied authorship during the war, he took full credit for it later. In a letter he wrote near the end of his life, Leland asserted that he drew all of the pictures, except No. 24, which was drawn by his brother. Furthermore he wrote all of the verses, except four by Frank Wells, four by G.H. Boker, and three by E.S. Rand. Leland had the nasty habit in his dotage to take credit for all sorts of things he had little to do with, but in this case he is probably reliable. A number of the full-page plates depict famous politicians of the day, including Lincoln, Jefferson Davis, Clement Vallandigham, Horatio Seymour, and Fernando Wood. Oblong octavo. 32 pages. Fully illustrated. Near fine, with an expertly restored spine. Housed in a custom-made clamshell box. $1,000 [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

Charles-Augustin Sainte-Beuve,
1863. Notre blog : https://librairie-trois-plumes.blogspot.fr/ Notre mail : benoit@troisplumes.fr Charles-Augustin Sainte-Beuve, Poésies complètes. Paris, Michel Lévy, 1863. 2 volumes in-8, [4]-306p & [4]-353p Nouvelle édition de ces poésies, contenant notamment Joseph Delorme. Exemplaire enrichi d'un envoi de Sainte-Beuve sur la couverture de chaque volume à Victor Pavie : « Mon ami V Pavie. SteBeuve ». Sainte-Beuve et Pavie étaient proches depuis longtemps, et on peut ajouter David d'Angers dans cette amicale, avec pour ciment Aloysius Bertrand. En effet, Sainte-Beuve rencontre Bertrand en 1828 ou 1829 et David d'Angers en 1836. Le premier essayera de faire publier Gaspard de la Nuit dès 1829 par Sautelet, qui fit faillite. Après plusieurs tentatives infructueuses, Victor Pavie annonce dès 1839 la parution de l'ouvrage. Toutefois, ce n'est qu'après la mort du poète que l'ouvrage paraît, en 1842, David d'Angers étant devenu légataire universel et Sainte-Beuve rédigeant une notice. L'amitié entre les trois personnages est donc forte et ancienne. Les lettres de David d'Angers à Victor Pavie ont d'ailleurs été récemment acquises par la bibliothèque municipale d'Angers (2018). Reliures demi-basane maroquinée vert bouteille, dos à nerfs orné, couvertures conservées. Petits frottis, papier jauni. Bon exemplaire, bonne provenance.

PARSONS, Theophilus, Jr.
Boston: William Carter and Brother, 1863. 8vo. 36 pages. Original printed wrappers. Spine repaired, some light handling wear. Item #405004 First edition, an important presentation copy annotated by the author, inscribed to his daughter Emily Elizabeth Parsons on the front wrapper: "Miss E. E. Parsons from her father." Four pages with revisions by Theophilus Parsons, correcting, emending, and adding text, presumably to share advancing thoughts on the subject with his daughter. The most important insertion relates to the Constitution. The printed text reads: "But, it its American sense, and in its purpose and its work, a Constitution had no existence, until it was called into being for our needs, and our good; called into being by the progress of humanity, and for that progress." In manuscript, Parsons changes it to read: "... by the progress of humanity, as the appointed means, by which the fabric of political society for mankind is, in coming ages, to gain new forms, new principles, new utility, and new life." Emily Elizabeth Parsons' (1824-1880) father edited and saw published her Civil War letters. That book, along with her posthumously published memoir, Fearless Purpose: Memoir of Emily Elizabeth Parsons, offered a rare insider's view from the nurse's perspective, describing her work tending to Union soldiers and managing the staff at Benton Barracks Hospital in St. Louis. Her writing provided an important insight into the lives of the women who served in the American Civil War, and ranked besides the published works of Louisa May Alcott, Clara Barton, and Susie Taylor. … [Click Below for Full Description]

J. M. Swords
1863. Vicksburg was a city under siege. Both Lee and Grant wanted to control the city and its important location along a bend in the Mississippi River, and in May 1863 Grant had surrounded it. . Citizens literally took shelter in caves; food and necessities grew scarcer and scarce.~~Vicksburg's newspaper naturally covered conditions on the ground in the city. But it also became a physical representation of those condition. The newspaper ran out of paper, and publisher J. M. Swords -- in a burst of ingenuity -- conceived the idea of cutting wallpaper into sheets and running them through the press as broadsides, with the wallpaper pattern one side and the text of the newspaper on the other.~~Swords issued 6 papers in this manner. This facsimile of the last was on July 2, 1863. Two days later the Confederates surrendered Vicksburg. Swords fled and Federal troops entered the city and "visited" the newspaper offices where type was still standing. They added a paragraph at the end of this issue added their own commentary, dated July 4, 1863:~"Two days brings about great changes, The banner of the Union floats over Vicksburg ... This is the last wall-paper edition, and is, excepting this note, from the types as we found them. It will be valuable hereafter as a curiosity". ~~Presumably two issues of this facsimile framed together -- to show both sides.
