Lincoln, Abraham]: Everett, Edward
New York: Baker & Godwin, 1863. 48pp. Publisher's printed wrappers, publisher's advertisement on rear wrapper. Very good. In a blue morocco box. The earliest publication of the Gettysburg Address in book form. This edition was preceded only by the exceptionally rare sixteen-page pamphlet, THE GETTYSBURG SOLEMNITIES, known in only three copies. Lincoln made his speech at the dedication of a cemetery on the Gettysburg battlefield some four months after the bloody and pivotal battle that turned the tide of the Civil War in favor of the Union. Lincoln's speech was preceded by an address from Edward Everett, the most famous orator of his day. Everett's speech took some ninety minutes to deliver, and is largely forgotten. Lincoln's speech, delivered in only a few minutes, is immortal. It is a supreme distillation of American values, and of the sacrifices necessary for the survival of liberty and freedom. "The WASHINGTON CHRONICLE of 18- 21 November reported extensively on this ceremony and included a verbatim text of 'Edward Everett's Great Oration.' On the fourth day it noted in passing that the President had also made a speech, but gave no details. When it came to the separate publication on 22 November, Everett's 'Oration' was reprinted from the standing type, but Lincoln's speech had to be set up. It was tucked away as a final paragraph on page 16 of the pamphlet [THE GETTYSBURG SOLEMNITIES]. It was similarly treated when the meanly produced leaflet was replaced by a 48-page booklet published by Baker and Godwin of New York in the same year" - PMM. Lincoln's address ap … [Click Below for Full Description]

An essay by a Union woman contesting the opinion "But for the courage and energy of the women of the South, we believe the Rebellion would not have survived to this time. Had the women of the North with like zeal addressed themeselves to the work of encouraging a loyla and devoted spirit among us, the copperhead conspiracy in behalf of the enemy would have been strangled at its birth, and the rebels would have been strangled at its birth, and the rebels would have learned, long ago, the futility of expecting aid and comfort from such a source".

Everett, Edward.
Liverpool, Printed at the „Daily Post" Steam Printing Works, 1863. 8°. 32 pages. Softcover. Original Pamphlet. Original brochure. Some rubbing fo front cover. As one of the most notable rhetorics of his time, Everett later that year gave his famous Gettysburg Oration. In his speech to the Boston Union Club, he addresses the struggle of the country due to the Civil War. Edward Everett (April 11, 1794 - January 15, 1865) was a Whig Party politician from Massachusetts. Everett was elected to the United States House of Representatives and United States Senate, and also served as President of Harvard University, United States Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary to Britain, and Governor of Massachusetts before being appointed United States Secretary of State by President Millard Fillmore to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Daniel Webster. Mentioned in the book „The Perfect Tribute," Everett was an unsuccessful candidate for Vice President of the United States in the 1860 election on the Constitutional Union ticket. In 1863 he delivered a two-hour Gettysburg Oration that has been eclipsed in history by President Lincoln's two-minute Gettysburg Address, which Everett praised as superior to his own. He was the father of congressman William Everett and the great uncle of Edward Everett Hale. Born in Boston, Massachusetts, to the Rev. Oliver Everett and Lucy (Hill) Everett, he attended Boston Latin School and graduated as the valedictorian from Harvard University in 1811, studied theology under the urging of the Rev. Joseph Stevens Buckminster, and was ordained pas … [Click Below for Full Description]

Coffin, Alexander H. [1805 -1890]
Poughkeepsie, NY: Alexander H. Coffin, 1863-1871. 1st Edition. Hardcover. The original, handwritten, Diary of Alexander H. Coffin for the period beginning on January 1, 1863 and continuing through and including March 11, 1871, noted by him to be the his "Diary No. 3." Coffin served as Postmaster General of Mansfield in Dutchess County, New York, did work as a Tax Assessor, and owned and operated Hemlock Farm in Dutchess County, New York. Other installments in his mult-volume Diary are held by the Dutchess County Historical Society, Poughkeepsie, NY (written during the period 1851 – 1859) and by The New York Public Library, Manuscripts and Archives Division (written during the period 1888-1890). Coffin begins this installment of his Diary stating "this Book is the third one I have used in keeping diary of [Many?] events, farming, weather...much of it of but little interest to any one but myself,..., it has aftertimes been of much use by way of reference, and much Satisfaction [underscored] to know what [underscored], and when [underscored]...." Contrary to his protestations, we find the Diary to be rather interesting, especially as it overlapped with America's Civil War.

Tari Antonio
Stamperia del Fibreno, 1863. In-16° grande, pp. 415, brossura editoriale verde acqua con titolo entro duplice filetto. Minimali restauri al dorso. Bell'esemplare in barbe. Prima edizione, rara, dell'opera principale del filosofo hegeliano campano, con parole di Benedetto Croce "il genuino rappresentante dell'estetica metafisica alla tedesca" e "il lieto giullare della filosofia", in quanto egli fu bizzarrissimo scrittore, dalla prosa traboccante di singolari metafore e di invenzioni terminologiche. Annota ancora il Croce: "Filosofo di professione ed uomo di dottrina enciclopedica, nonostante tutta la sua perizia filosofica, la sua sterminata dottrina e il suo molto acume, il Tari fu soprattutto un bizzarro artista. La sua concezione metafisica non gli concedeva una trattazione veramente logica dei problemi. Ma la sua personalità, vibrante di commozione innanzi alle opere dell'arte, riboccante di entusiasmo, dotata di bontà e di nobiltà di sentire, gli ispirava pagine che sono di una specie assai rara nella nostra letteratura... gli faceva trovare piacere nei ravvicinamenti e collegamenti più disparati e più comici: della frase sublime con la scherzosa, del ricordo solenne con l'aneddoto salace, del linguaggio latino o del tedesco col vernacolo napoletano. Parla in gergo, ma in gergo che è quintessenza di cultura e stravagante miscuglio di elementi geniali". La presente opera fu concepita dal Tari come una "estesinomia", ossia una metafisica del bello volta a indagare l'essenza del bello nello spirito conoscente. Italiano

ATKINSON, Lucy Sherrard.
London: John Murray, 1863. Octavo (182 x 115 mm). Contemporary half calf, decorative gilt spine, green morocco label, marbled paper sides, marbled edges. Ownership inscription on front pastedown of "Miss Williams's, Wasperton House", Warwickshire; bookseller's stamp of Cooke & Son, Warwick, on front free endpaper. Binding lightly rubbed, a touch of foxing in places. An attractive copy. Wood-engraved frontispiece and 4 plates. First edition, uncommon. Lucy Atkinson (1817-1893), traveller and writer, accompanied her husband, Thomas Witlam Atkinson, in Siberia, the Kirgiz steppes and eastwards as far as Irkutsk and the Chinese border. Her "vivid account, which is arranged as a series of letters to a friend, shows Lucy Atkinson to have been an indefatigable horsewoman who was held in respect by local people both for her equestrian skills and as a markswoman with pistol and rifle. Her reference to the birth of her son Alatau (named after a nearby mountain and spring), in the absence of a medical attendant, offers a further indication of her unusually independent capabilities. In her descriptions of meetings with survivors of the 1825 Decembrist uprising then scattered through Siberia, including M. I. Murav'ev-Apostol, I. D. Yakushkin, P. I. Falenberg, the Volkonsky and Trubetskoy families, the Borisov brothers, and the Betsuzhevs (which her husband could not include owing to the dedication of his second volume to Tsar Alexander II), Lucy Atkinson's work is of interest and importance to historians of the period" (ODNB).

Clam-Gallas, Eduard Gf. von, Militär (1805-1891).
Prag, 31. V. 1863. 3 SS. auf Doppelblatt. 8vo. Mit eh. Adresse. An den Mediziner Rudolf Rt. von Vivenot (1807-1884): "Da meine kleine Clotilde mit Gottes Hülfe nun so gut wie aus der Gefahr ist, so bitte ich Sie dringend nur ja Ihren ganzen Einfluß dahin zu verwenden, daß Clotilde nicht früher abreist als Sie u. Braun es für gut halten [.]". - Seit 1839 Oberst und Regimentskommandant, wurde Eduard Gf. von Clam-Gallas Generalmajor und Brigadier in Prag und Mailand und anschließend Feldmarschalleutnant, als welcher er 1848/49 in Italien und Ungarn kämpfte. 1859 als Korpskommandant bei Magenta und Solferino, wurde er 1861 General der Kavallerie und Herrenhausmitglied. Als Kommandeur des I. Armeekorps nahm er am Krieg von 1866 teil und wurde in einer den Niederlagen folgenden kriegsgerichtlichen Untersuchung zwar freigesprochen und rehabilitiert, quittierte aber 1868 den Dienst. - Seine erwähnte Gattin Clothilde, geb. Gräfin von Dietrichstein, zählt zu den prominentesten Vertreterinnen des Hochadels ihrer Zeit, war k. u. k. Palast- und Sternkreuzordensdame, Ehrendame des Malteserordens und übte großen Einfluß auf zeitgenössische Politiker und Künstler aus. - Rudolf Rt. von Vivenot gründete 1848 den „Konstitutionell-monarchistischen Verein"; als sich die angestrebte Gründung einer patriotischen Partei nicht verwirklichen ließ, zog er sich jedoch aus der aktiven Politik zurück. Seit 1868 Mitglied der Deutschen Akademie der Naturforscher Leopoldina, wurde er 1872 Vorsitzender des Komitees zur Gründung des Sophienspitals in Wien; daneben war Vivenot Direktor des Unterstützungsverei … [Click Below for Full Description]

Heade, Martin Johnson
[London, 1863. Chromolithographed plates, image areas 11 1/2 x 9 3/4 inches. Very minor surface wear, else fine condition. Matted and framed. A sensational pair of chromolithographs featuring Brazilian hummingbirds. After his journeys in South America, Martin Johnson Heade planned a chromolithographic work to be entitled GEMS OF BRAZIL, which would translate twenty of his paintings of hummingbirds and orchids into prints. In 1863, he executed the paintings of hummingbirds against a Brazilian background and sent them to London to be chromolithographed. For some unknown reason the project was dropped. Only four of the plates survive in proof form; these are two of them. In THE DEMOCRATIC ART, Peter Marzio states that five colors plus a tint stone were used, with traces of oil paint in the highlights. This firm owned two of the proofs about twenty-five years ago, and these are the only other ones we have seen on the market. Simply stunning works, as rare as they are extraordinarily beautiful. Sixteen of the original Heade paintings came into the private collection of the famed English art historian Kenneth Clark, who later gave them to his son Alan. Alan Clark sold them in the 1970s to help finance his political career and taste for exotic cars; they went into the collection of the American art collector Richard Manoogian. He sold them to the Crystal Bridges Museum in Bentonville, Arkansas, where they can be seen today.
