Lincoln, Abraham]: Everett, Edward
New York: Baker & Godwin, 1863. 48pp. Publisher's printed wrappers, publisher's advertisement on rear wrapper. Repair to paper spine. Very good. In a cloth box, leather label. Rare first appearance in book form of Lincoln's magnificent Gettysburg Address. 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. His speech was preceded by an address by 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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Kinglake was in the Crimea in 1854, "witnessed the battle of the Alma from close hand, dined that night with Lord Raglan... helped the wounded, sketched and recorded the scenes in his diary. Kinglake rode with the allies towards Sevastopol and watched them take up siege positions on upland to the south. From there, he saw the charges of the Heavy and Light Brigades on 25 October near Balaklava, though soon afterwards he was invalided back to England" (ODNB). Entrusted with the task of writing a history of the campaign by Lord Raglan's widow who had sent him all the papers in her possession he "undertook the task, and executed it with extraordinary care... [he] consulted French, Russian, and Turkish sources, and corresponded and interviewed exhaustively. He returned to the Crimea, hosted by the Russian engineer Todleben, who had so ably defended Sevastopol." The result was probably excessive, and most certainly somewhat prejudiced … [Click Below for Full Description]

I shall take the first opportunity to appoint Sergeant Dempsey a Second Lieutenant in accordance with your wishes. I am recommending a good many men from this regiment to promotions in other positions in the gift of Gov.

The Governor has appointed Watson & Adsit by mistake to Lieutenants position in this regiment. Will you be so kind as to speak to General Sprague in regard to this, so that no mistakes may happen hereafter. Watson & Adsit, pass over many deserving Sergeants and Second Lieutenants, and this causes much trouble. I hope it will not happen hereafter, since all promotions in this regiment are officially sent by mail to General Sprague. My name was not sent up by the President to the Senate as Brigadier General. The announcement in the Albany Evening Journal was premature. This regiment is equal in bravery to a brigade, and it will accomplish as much as most brigades in any battle.

L. Hachette Et Cie, Paris, 1863. Pleine percaline éditeur Deux volumes grand in Folio (430x313 mm), frontispice, (4)-xxiv-460-ii pages et 61 planches hors texte / frontispice, (4)-516-ii pages et 57 planches. Un petite tache au premier plat Rousseurs, une déchirure anciennement restaurés au tome 2 Premier tirage. Célèbre et monumentale publication, ornée en premier tirage de 120 hors-texte et de 250 vignettes dans le texte, le tout gravé sur bois d’après Gustave Doré. Le Don Quichotte est considéré comme l'un des chefs-d’œuvre de Doré : une science très aboutie de l’utilisation de la lumière et de l’ombre est à l’œuvre et souligne tous ces aspects du personnage. De même une utilisation savante des perspectives permet à Doré des mises en scène théâtrales et dramatiques. Avec ses plans panoramiques, son découpage de l’espace, ses cadrages de personnages, ses effets de lumière, Doré a mis au point un langage des images qui préfigure celui des grandes épopées cinématographiques mettant en scène, elles aussi, des cavaliers pauvres et solitaires qui cheminent vers l’horizon. : « Vous en sortez ébloui, éperdu, haletant, brisé, roussi », confie Edmond About à la « Revue de Paris ».

Charleston, South Carolina, 1863. No binding. Fine. Manuscript Document Signed, Charleston, South Carolina, August 17, 1863. 4 pp. on lined blue paper, watermarked F A Gordon 1862, 8 x 12 1/2 in. ""Whereas the convention on the 8th Jany 1862 expressed ""as the sense of the people of South Carolina ... that Charleston should be defended at any cost of life or property ... I, Milledge L. Bonham Commander-in-chief in & over the State of South Carolina do recommend to, and enjoin upon, all good citizens the removal from Charleston, as early as practicable, of all non-combatants...."" Historical BackgroundThe siege of Charleston, South Carolina, lasted through the latter half of the Civil War. After the U.S. Army surrendered Fort Sumter in April 1861, Confederate forces occupied it and several additional fortifications to protect Charleston harbor. The South Atlantic Blockading Squadron attempted to intercept any ships going into or coming out of the harbor.In January 1863, a state convention determined that Charleston should be defended at all costs. In April 1863, nine Union naval ironclads attempted to destroy the Confederate forts defending the harbor but failed to penetrate even the first line of defensive works. Union forces did, however, occupy Folly Island.When Union forces returned in earnest in July 1863, the Confederate general in command of Charleston advised the evacuation of all non-combatants, but few heeded his advice. In this proclamation the following month, Governor Bonham added his urgent plea that citizens and their ""human property"" leave the city to pre … [Click Below for Full Description]

Mississippi, 1863. No binding. Fine. Autograph Letter Signed, to ""Messrs Harper Brothers."" ""Camp before Vicksburg,"" Mississippi, March 29, 1863. 2 pp., 7 3/4 x 9 3/4 in. In the midst of preparations for the final campaign against Vicksburg, Sherman writes to Harper Brothers concerning the publication of Daniel Butterfield's Camp and Outpost Duty for Infantry. In a war in which the bulk of combatants were new recruits, the art of training and disciplining men was crucial to battlefield success, making Butterfield's manual, Hardee's Tactics, and other books essential instructional material. ""Should you succeed in this I would advise its publication in ... on linen paper, as to be carried in the pockets of officers on outpost duty and such as are published on paper should have a pliable leather, waterproof cover for similar reasons. This to be sure would increase its cost, but ... increase its real value fourfold..."" Complete Transcript Head Qrs 15 Army Corps. Camp before Vicksburg.

He is principally known as a landscape and a portrait photographer (of, e.g., the French poet Lamartine), and as a landscape painter. His landscape photos are rare and sought-after, and are, for instance, included in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York. This photograph is of geological importance, showing Monte Frumento on Sicily, which is situated on the flanks of Mount Etna, whose snow-covered top is seen in the background. This photo can be dated as from 1863-1865, as Berthier is known to have photographed the Etna volcano during and after its 1861-1865 eruptions. He did not visit the area after 1865. The 1866 volume of "Le tour du Monde", contains a series of papers by Élisée Reclus on the 1865 Etna eruption, illustrated with engravings after original photos by Berthier. Berthier's blindstamp below the photo, as caption. Some spotting, mainly in the margins.

Despite Meade's victory over Lee at Gettysburg, he had been criticized by Lincoln for failing to pursue and destroy the retreating Confederate army. So Meade now took the offensive, moving across the Rappahannock River and towards the critical Rapidan River fords.Earlier in the day of September 13, the Union cavalry, with a gallant charge by George A. Custer, routed J.E.B. Stuart's cavalry corps in the Battle of Culpeper Court House. At 9 p.m., Lee responded to the growing crisis with this order, instructing his chief of artillery to move at daybreak to establish fieldworks at the Rapidan crossings.Pendleton followed Lee's orders.

ABRAHAM LINCOLN. GETTYSBURG ADDRESS
"and that Government of the people, for the people, and for all people, shall not perish from earth."As printing technology advanced through the middle decades of the nineteenth century, illustrated newspapers grew in popularity even though their engravings added a few weeks to press time. Leslie'sprinting—from December 5—includes an article containing the full text of Lincoln's timeless speech (page 11). Illustrations include a centerfold spread with the formal dedication ceremony prominently placed, and smaller views of Union and rebel graves, defensive works, Meade's headquarters, and a view of the town (centerfold). A large illustration of "The War in Tennessee—Lookout Mountain and Its Vicinity" appears on the front page.There is no definitive text that captures exactly how Lincoln spoke that day, though the AP reporter's text is most familiar. Leslie's printing, following the Philadelphia Enquirerversion, contains variations, most notably in the final two sentences regarding the nation's unfinished work and closing phrase of "Government of the people, for the people, and for all people" rather than "of the people, by the people, and for the people."[ABRAHAM LINCOLN].

Speke Capt. John Hanning
London William Blackwood and Sons 1863. First edition. Illustrated with 76 black and white plates, including a frontispiece of the author, and 2 maps, one folding. Thick 8vo, in a fine binding of period style 3/4 clay-brown straight grained morocco over marbled boards, the spine in compartments with gilt central ornaments, raised bands lined and stopped in gilt, original black morocco lettering label gilt, marbled endpapers, all edges marbled. xi, 658, including appendix. An unusually fine copy, with only some mild mellowing of the pages, primarily at the front. After an expedition into eastern Africa in the company of Sir Richard Burton, Speke returned to England to announce his hypothesis that the Nile issued from Lake Victoria Nyanza. However, his fellow geographers, including Burton, were doubtful of this claim. Under the sponsorship of Sir Roderick Murchison, Speke went back to Africa and Lake Victoria Nyanza, and when he returned home he claimed that this time he had found conclusive evidence that the lake was indeed the source of the great river. This work is his published account of that expedition. It details his day-by-day adventures in his search for the source of the Nile, including myriad accounts of experiences such as his enjoyment of courtly life in the native palace in Uganda and, of course, expeditions of big game hunting. But he never lost sight of "the problem [he] went to solve," and returned with what he claimed was conclusive proof that the Nile issued from Lake Victoria Nyanza.

Bonham Commander-in-chief in & over the State of South Carolina do recommend to, and enjoin upon, all good citizens the removal from Charleston, as early as practicable, of all non-combatants...."" Historical BackgroundThe siege of Charleston, South Carolina, lasted through the latter half of the Civil War. After the U.S. Army surrendered Fort Sumter in April 1861, Confederate forces occupied it and several additional fortifications to protect Charleston harbor. The South Atlantic Blockading Squadron attempted to intercept any ships going into or coming out of the harbor.In January 1863, a state convention determined that Charleston should be defended at all costs. In April 1863, nine Union naval ironclads attempted to destroy the Confederate forts defending the harbor but failed to penetrate even the first line of defensive works. Union forces did, however, occupy Folly Island.When Union forces returned in earnest in July 1863, the Confederate general in command of Charleston advised the evacuation of all non-combatants, but few heeded his advice. In this proclamation the following month, Governor Bonham added his urgent plea that citizens and their ""human property"" leave the city to pre … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ting Shing, Dutton & Michaels
Canton, 1863. Albumen print, mounted. 8 x 11 ¼ inches. A fine early photograph of the towering Hua Ta or Flower Pagoda at Guangzhou's most celebrated temple. This is an excellent early photograph of the Hua Ta or Flower Pagoda, the most famous pagoda in Guangzhou, photographed by Ting Shing, Sylvester Dutton, and Vincent Michaels in 1863. Ting Shing, an equal partner in the Dutton & Michaels Studio was "perhaps the earliest commercial Chinese photographer working in Canton" (Bennett, History... Chinese Photographers ... 1844-1879, 118). The Hua Ta or Flower Pagoda, named for its colorful exterior, is the focal point of the famous ancient Buddhist Temple of the Six Banyan Trees in Guangzhou, a renowned Buddhist cultural site. The beautiful octagonal pagoda originally constructed during the Liang period of the Southern Dynasty is regarded as symbol of the city. From the outside the pagoda appears to be nine stories high but there are seventeen levels inside. The interior of the pagoda is adorned with 1000 sculptures of Buddha. In 1863 Dutton and Michaels came to China from San Francisco and opened up a photographic studio in Canton (Guangzhou) with the Chinese photographer Ting Shing. As Terry Bennett notes in History ... 1861-1879 Dutton and Michaels were "fine, experienced photographers who, in the short time they were in China, produced work of the highest merit." This fine photograph shows three Chinese men seated in front of the picturesque ruins of the Hua Ta Pagoda, before the late Qing Dynasty restorations of the temple and grounds.

Bizet, Georges. (1838-1875)
Used; Like New/Used; Like New. The printed first edition score of his first opera Les Pecheurs des Perles [The Pearl Fishers], arranged by the composer for piano and voices, paginated 1-210 [but in fact 214 pages, as the numbers 85-88 have been repeated]. 4to, bound in roan backed boards, gilt title and bands on spine. Published by Choudens, Paris, n.d. [1863]. Signed and Inscribed on the dedication page in French to the tenor Francois Morini, who sang the major role of Nadir in the first production (and who is listed on the following printed Personages page): "A Nadir Morini - faible témoignage de reconnaissance, d'estime et d'amitié Georges Bizet."An important and evocative association copy. Les Pecheurs de Perles had its first performance at the Théatre Lyrique, Paris, on 30 September 1863, shortly before Bizet's twenty-fifth birthday. It was given 18 performances, regarded as respectable for a début work, although it did not obtain lasting popularity until after Bizet's death. Its great male friendship duet in Act 1, Au fond du temple saint, sung by Nadir and his rival in love Zurga, is one of the most famous in all opera. Front cover somewhat worn, with bumped corners. Some even browning on the interior pages, which remain clear throughout. The inscription is strongly written, with a large dark signature. Autograph material of Bizet is highly uncommon and presentation scores of this kind are among the rarest of all forms.
