CIVIL WAR
Philadelphia, PA, 1864. Two tickets to the Great Central Fair in Philadelphia. One admitted a pupil of the public schools of Philadelphia and was used on Saturday, June 11, according to the stamp on the verso. The other is an apparently unused "Season Ticket" that admitted the bearer "To All Parts of the Fair," except the Children's Exhibitions but was "Forfeited if Transferred and Not Good unless Endorsed." The verso includes the oath, "I hereby promise that this Ticket shall be used to obtain admission to the Fair by myself only" and a blank line for a signature. [CIVIL WAR].Great Central Fair Tickets, June 1864. Pair of passes for the Great Central Fair, held in Philadelphia, June 7-28, 1864. One ticket is for one day's admission for a public school student. The other is a season ticket. 1 p. each, 3½ x 2¼ and 3½ x 2 in.Historical BackgroundDuring the Civil War, several northern cities hosted sanitary fairs between 1863 and 1865 to raise money for the care of wounded soldiers. The Great Central Fair, held at Logan Square in Philadelphia in June 1864, was a fundraiser for the United States Sanitary Commission and was one of the largest fairs. The main exhibit building, constructed in forty working days by local volunteer skilled labor, enclosed 200,000 square feet. It featured nearly one hundred departments offering a broad range of displays from Arms and Trophies to Fine Arts to Umbrellas and Canes. Curiosities included a $1,000 doll house, a recreated parlor of William Penn with Penn artifacts, the boat used by Arctic explorer Elisha Kent Kane, and Geo … [Click Below for Full Description]

David the Scribe
Brooklyn: D. S. Holmes, [1864]. Brooklyn: D. S. Holmes. Very Good. [1864]. Pro-Lincoln election broadside; measures 10" x 13" with black lettering and decorative border. Broadside has light foxing and ½" tear on right side. Scarce political broadside in pseudo biblical language, supporting "Father Lincoln" over McClellan in the election of 1864. It recounts the Democratic nomination of McClellan who was as "ill-advised" and who listened to the "evil counsels" and argues that only Lincoln would uphold the "People's New Ten Commandments." These Commandments supported liberty and freedom for all, prohibited against any compromise with the "Slaveocracy" and against the desire "to possess thyself of anything relating to the peculiar institutions of thy Southern neighbors." Five copies in OCLC as of September 2019. .

J. Julian Chisolm
Evans and Cogswell, 1864. Hard Cover. Third Edition, Enlarged. The revised and enlarged Third Edition of Chisolm's Manual of Military Surgery, complete with 26 graphic surgical plates. Previous owners' names on the front endpapers, J. B. Coakley, M.D. of the 18th Battalion Virginia Heavy Artillery, or Lightfoot's Battalion. In the words of Richard Harwell of In Tall Cotton, "the most important of Confederate medical books is John Julian Chisolm's A Manual of Military Surgery in its third edition (Charleston: 1864). This edition is 104 pages longer than the first edition and includes 26 plates. The first two editions have no plates." (ITC 32). Dr. Levin Joynes, Dean of the Faculty for the Virginia Medical College in Richmond during the Civil War, is quoted in Harwell's Confederate Hundred, describing an earlier unillustrated edition, "probably the most valuable portion of the Work is contained in the first four chapters, which relate to the hygiena of troops on the march and in camp-the organization and management of hospitals- the duties of the surgeon in camp and on the field of battle." No doubt these chapters were very useful for Coakley, who served at a hospital during the defense of Richmond, until his surrender at Appomattox with the remnants of Lightfoot's Batallion; he is listed among the paroled soldiers there. Confederate cloth binding, with a thin label on the spine. Beginning of separation to the joints, but holding well, and minor loss to the edges of the spine; textblock toned. Rare in any edition; this one undoubtedly the most desirable. Now protected with a … [Click Below for Full Description]

Heath, Laban
Heath, Boston, 1864. Newman 1-P-14(b). 16mo, original blindstamped brown cloth; front cover lettered in gilt, without price. 32 pages; 10 engraved plates of bank note design elements, with original tissue guards, interspersed in the text, with plate 6 serving as a frontispiece, plate 4 printed in red ink, plate 8 printed in green ink, an unnumbered plate being an engraved folding Heath bank note facsimile, and a final unnumbered plate being a folding facsimile of a counterfeit $5 Bank of Orleans note taken from captured engraved plates. Newman 1-P-14(b) is a variant of the 14th printing without the price printed on the front cover; the price would not appear on subsequent printings of this edition. Nearly fine. Newman 1-P-14(b). In the years following the publication of his study of the Heath counterfeit detectors, Eric P. Newman continued to examine every copy that he encountered, occasionally discovering additional variations. He noted that the 14th printings were found both with and without the price printed on the front cover. Thus was born Newman 1-P-14(a), with the price of 1.50 stated on the cover, and Newman 1-P-14(b), without it. Both are scarce compared to most other printings, but their relative scarcity to each other has yet to be established. The Newman copy, which was comparable, brought $576.

Issued by subscription, or direct from the author himself in Springfield, Ohio. Accompanying the book is an original albumen carte-de-visite- photograph of the author and Lieut. A. P. Collins "as they appeared in rebel rags and chains before the rebel court at Jackson, Ga. on trial for their lives." This illustration appears as a wood engraving on p. 150 of the book. The carte-de-visite has considerable printed text on the verso, where "further particulars" are given about the book's availability: "See book entitled 'Beyond the Lines, or a Yankee Prisoner Loose in Dixie,' published by J.

Old damp-stain present throughout; still very good. Newman 1-P-20. An unusual issue. Eric P. Newman wrote of it that "This printing may be from handset type instead of stereotype." It could have been issued at any time after Newman 1-P-3, as it includes the two unnumbered folding plates, but before Type 2-P. It is also the only variety of the first edition not printed throughout within double borders. The lack of a price on the front cover would suggest that it fell later in the lifetime of the first edition. Rare. Ex Eric P. Newman Library. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

BACHMANN, John
New York: Charles Magnus, 1864. Chromolithograph, by Bachmann. Backed onto tissue with neat repaired tears to margins (two just touching the title). Third state of this fascinating quasi-aerial view of the northernmost part of the east coast of the Confederacy, and the southernmost areas of the Union, including Washington: this third issue, printed after the smoke that was added to Manassas for the second issue had been removed again, has "many towns and battlefields ... added, especially around Richmond, Petersburg, and Fredericksburg" (Rumsey). It was published by Charles Magnus of New York. 'At the outset of the Civil War, John Bachmann, of New York City, one of the finest American artists and lithographers specializing in bird's-eye views, began producing a series of panoramas of likely theaters of War' (Stephenson & McKee Virginia in Maps p.239). This view, taken from the apparent vantage point some miles up in the outer atmosphere, was designed to serve as an individual stand-alone image (as here), but also to join with two other views by Bachmann which together form one continuous panorama of the east coast of the Confederacy. In all, Bachmann published six views covering the whole 'Seat of the War'. The present image covers an area which includes the locations of a number of well-known Civil War actions: Harper's Ferry, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, Spotsylvania, Manassas, Petersburg and Appomattox River, Richmond and environs. John Bachmann was one of America's leading viewmakers, having been responsible for some of the finest New York City views. Th … [Click Below for Full Description]

Just ask! 1864 1ed Maine Woods Henry David Thoreau Wilderness Native American Indians "I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately..." --Henry David Thoreau The Maine Woods is a posthumously published collection of three essays related to Thoreau's travels and experiences in the Maine woodlands. Specifically, this volume contains the essays "Ktaadn," "Chesuncook," and "The Allegash and East Branch." Additionally, it includes: · Thoreau's notes on the varieties of plants and animals one might encounter in the Maine woods · Suggestions about proper attire for the region · A helpful glossary of Native American phrases. In these essays, Thoreau relates adventures as an early observer of Maine, which he visited three times from 1846-1857. Thoreau recounts experiences climbing Mount Katahdin (Maine's tallest mountain) and Mount Kineo and visiting Grand Lake Matagamon and Chamberlain Lake. Throughout the text, Thoreau explores man's relationship to and effect on the wilderness. Dave Foreman, Earth-First eco-warrior/author, has written that it is "Thoreau's finest book, far deeper and more important than 'Walden.' On his two trips into the deep Maine wilderness [Thoreau] had the epiphany that enabled him to realize that 'in wildness is the preservation of the world.' 'Maine' not 'Walden' changed American intellectual history." This is 1864 first edition is one of 1650 copies published on May 28, 1864!
