Cartersville, Georgia to LaFayette, Alabama, 1863. Unbound. Very good. The letter and envelope are both dated Dec 3, 1863. The envelope is addressed to John Reed at LaFayette, Alabama and franked with a 10-cent blue Jefferson Davis stamp (Scott CSA#12) that is canceled with a circular Cartersville, Georgia postmark also dated Dec 3. The letter and stamp are in very nice shape; the letter has some minor wear and soiling. Brown describes the South's defeat at Chattanooga, expresses remorse at being unable to return to his home in Tennessee, and announces an effort to raise a Confederate African-American regiment. "[Nathan Bedford] Forest has gone to west [actually, east] Tennessee with his command where he expects to recruit & make Okolona his head quarters. . . .

PASTEUR, Louis.
[Paris: Mallet-Bachelier, 1863]. Extremely rare separately-paginated offprint of the <i>ne plus ultra</i> of Pasteur's work on spontaneous generation, and his proof that putrefaction was, like fermentation, caused by living organisms; this paper directly influenced Joseph Lister's research on antisepsis (see below). Pasteur himself regarded the experiments described in this work as the most decisive (Rostand, p. 183), writing at the end of the paper that they struck the final blow against the doctrine of spontaneous generation (“Il sera superflu sans doute de faire remarquer que les expériences dont je viens d'entretenir l'Académie au sujet du sang et de l'urine portent un dernier coup à la doctrine des générations spontanées, aussi bien qu'à la théorie moderne des ferments”). Pasteur's opponents had objected that in the experiments described in Pasteur's earlier paper ‘Mémoire sur les Corpuscules organisées qui existent dans l'Atmosphere' (1861), the heating of the fermentable materials may have destroyed the ‘vegetative forces' needed to create new life. In the present work, Pasteur therefore collected blood and urine directly from the veins and bladders of healthy cattle. These mediums did not require heating to be sterilized and, as in his previous experiments, micro-organisms appeared only on exposure to atmospheric air. “Many scientists of the vitalist persuasion, including Liebig, believed that putrefaction was due to a spontaneous breakdown of animal tissues once the chemical forces of affinity were no longer held in check by a vital force. It was also widely beli … [Click Below for Full Description]

Francis Emilius Cary Elwes
260 page partly illustrated sporting manuscript and diary written November 1862- September 1863 by Francis Emilius Cary Elwes.Re. Price. This should be considered as an "invitation to treat" This is probably one of the most extraordinary sporting manuscript in existence or ever discovered.It is perhaps also one of the more remarkable manuscripts to be discovered in the whole of literature. In a small way it will change received history that many people throughout the cricket world, without question, accept as the truth. A truth that I for one, accepted without question. Until that is April 2016 with the study and acquisition of this manuscript and I was able to prove that this could not possibly be the case. Its unusual qualities are threefold. Firstly because it is nothing less than the ORIGINAL SOURCE MANUSCRIPT in part at least for Wisden's Almanac 1864, and secondly because the one person it is not by is John Wisden!!!. and were this not enough thirdly it provides also the textual and stylistic prototype guide from which Wisden's Almanac evolved over the next 10 years. It is of immense importance to the early days of cricket proving as it does that John Wisden was not the sole creator of the 1864 first edition of Wisden but also that the way it supposedly evolved with the edition of bowling analysis, schools cricket and most importantly match reports over the next ten years owes everything to the prototypes in this manuscript and little to John Wisden. It is also of interest to those interested in the subject of plagiarism, because without any doubt as I will show John … [Click Below for Full Description]

Three pages of pencil annotation to blank rear endpapers consist of religious meditations. Further note to blank front endpage: 'Anne Ridler's copy'. Anne Ridler, poet and editor, was a significant figure on the British literary scene in the mid-20th century. Her husband, Vivian Ridler, was Printer to Oxford University from 1958-78 (the address blindstamped to the front endpage is that of the Oxford house where they lived from 1948 onwards).

Triest bzw. ohne Ort, 1863 bzw. o. J. Zus. 8 S., 8°. Bombelles begleitete Kaiser Maximilian nach Mexiko und stand 1864-1869 in mexikanischen Diensten. - Beiliegend ein umfangreicher Brief (12 S., Gr.-8°), wohl von Bombelles Sohn Karl. - Der Empfänger der auf Französisch abgefassten Briefe ist Jacques (Jacob) Mislin (1807-1878). Der aus ärmlichen Verhältnissen stammende Mislin konnte dank seines Onkels an der berühmten Lehranstalt von Porrentruy im Schweizer Kanton Bern studieren, wo er nicht viel später auch selbst unterrichten sollte. Der 1830 zum Priester geweihte kath. Theologe wurde 1836 auf Vermittlung des Grafen von Bombelle an den Wiener Hof berufen, wo er einer der Lehrer der Söhne von Erzherzog Franz Karl und Erzherzogin Sophie wurde und damit sowohl den zukünftigen Kaiser Franz Joseph wie auch Erzherzog Ferdinand Maximilian (später Kaiser Max von Mexiko) unterrichtete (u.a. auch in Erdkunde). Vor der Revolution von 1848 unternahm Mislin eine Pilgerreise von Wien über Budapest und Konstantinopel nach Jersusalem. Der danach erschienene Reisebericht wurde in mehrere Sprachen übersetzt und mehrfach nachgedruckt. In den folgenden Jahren leitete er die Bibliothek am Hof der Herzogin von Parma, Erzherzogin Marie Louise, wurde zum Abt von St. Maria von Deg (Ungarn), geheimer Kämmerer u.

Esta edición constituye pues un tierno homenaje y reivindicación histórica de las penas sufridas por el autor. Reza el prefacio, firmado por Rivadeneyra como El Editor: El texto de esta edición se ha impreso en Argamasilla de Alba, en la misma casa donde, según es fama, estuvo preso Miguel de Cervantes. Con este motivo se llevó allá un material completp de imprenta. El local no es el más a propósito para sacar una impresión exenta de defectos; parte del día se ha trabajado con luz artificial: se ha hecho lo que se ha podido. Se dió principio á la edición el 23 de Octubre de 1862, según consta por acta del mismo día, ante los dignos individuos de aquel ayuntamiento [.]. Se concluyó la tirada del último pliego el día 8 de Febrero de 1863. Se han impreso 2.000 ejemplares, y se han ocupado los operarios siguientes [.]. El editor espera que este obsequio al festivo escritor, príncipe de los ingenios españoles, será recibido con benevolencia de cuantos se deleitan en la lectura de una obra tan admirable. Además de las peculiaridades de Rivadeneyra de imprimir en una locación tan incómoda p … [Click Below for Full Description]

Apparently edited by George M. Stroud
[Philadelphia], 1863. 1st Edition. Wraps. Very good. Complete, 32 pages plus the illustrated wrapper. Cover and title page both feature the famous illustration of "Whipped Peter" Gordon, an escaped slave who enlisted in the Union Army. Sound binding. The reverse of the title page contains a preface by Stroud dated "Philadelphia, Sept. 15, 1863." Clean with minor edge-wear. This pamphlet contains short passages from pro-slavery, anti-abolition speeches given by George Washington Woodward (the leader of the Democratic Party in Michigan) and John Henry Hopkins (the Episcopalian Bishop of Vermont) interspersed with long excerpts from Fanny Kemble's journal describing the horrors of slavery based on her experience living on a Georgia plantation. The document was used to attack Judge Woodward, who at the time was the Democratic candidate for Governor of Pennsylvania. Stoud was a ardent abolishionist judge from Philadelphia, who authored Southern Slavery and the Christian Religion and a famous analysis of slave laws, A Sketch of the Laws Relationg to Slavery. Frances "Fanny" Kemble was a well-known British actress who had married Philadelphian Pierce Butler, the heir to tobacco, rice, and cotton plantations near Darien, Georgia, and the hundreds of slaves that worked them. Although Butler made regular visits to his plantations, Kemble did not accompany him until in 1838 after several years of marriage. Although she personally found blacks to be stupid, lazy, filthy and ugly, when she saw slavery up close, she was appalled.by their living and working conditions as well as the mixed … [Click Below for Full Description]

Recently rebound in quarter speckled calf, marbled boards, spines with red morocco labels with gilt lettering; pp. xl + 244 + vii + 85, xii + 218; internally very clean, very good indeed.
