Chicago: Schonberg and Co, 1864. First Edition. Hardcover. Good. Folio, 64pp., plus advertisements at rear. In good condition, with the backstrip mostly perished, but spine still holding. Some mild internal foxing and a few stains, but the hand-colored maps remain mostly bright. Very scarce Civil War-era atlas of the world, which is centered aroung North America, with many full-page plates of American and Confederate states, some of which are doubled-up (Kentucky and Tennessee, for example). Includes a fascinating full-spread map at rear entitles "Virginia Campaign Map, 1864," which details troop movements of the US Forces in Virginia during that year.

We note a similar 1866 example in commerce (restored) and just a handful of recent auction records for similar examples; just one of which is (like this one) contemporary to the Civil War. OCLC records about 7 holdings, mostly in major collections. The Rumsey Map Collection appears to hold the 1865 and 1867 editions. A rare and important Civil War-era American atlas, which has detailed maps of the Confederate states; in wholly original unsophisticated condition, and mercifully complete.

Between 1831 and 1890, the Colton firm dominated American map publishing, although Colton had no formal training in geography or cartography; he began by purchasing copyrights of maps prepared by other individuals or companies, and his principal role was to manage the production and distribution of the maps.Colton's maps, including this one, were extremely popular in the 19th-century for their detail and durability. This Civil War-era atlas includes impressive, color maps of the United States.

THOMPSON, D'arcy W
Griffith and Farran, 1864. Pagination is viii, 56, followed by 32 page publishers' catalogue. With frontispiece, pictorial title page and circa 60 text wood-engravings by Charles H Bennett, COLOURED BY HAND THROUGHOUT, original colouring as issued, bound in original bright red bevel edged textured cloth, upper board and spine richly gilt decorated to a design probably also by Bennett, the lower board stamped in blind, edges gilt, brown endpapers, binders' ticket of Burn. This was the first of two nonsense verse titles published by D'Arcy Thompson, eminent classical scholar and professor of Greek at Galway University; one of his previous pupils in England had been Robert Louis Stevenson. This book, like its successor of the following year, was written for and dedicated to, his son of the same name as himself who would grow up to become an eminent scientist and philosopher. The present collection of nonsense verse is part of the Victorian canon of such writings for children, which included the work of Lear and Lewis Carrol, and was included in the Rhys anthology of Nonsense issued in the Everyman series in 1927. This copy is outstanding, not only because of its condition and rarity but also on account of it being the highly desirable coloured issue, as made available by the publishers. Great care was evidently lavished upon both the production and colouring of this title, and few coloured copies have survived. A beautiful facsimile was produced by Shuppan of Tokyo in 1996 from a coloured copy, but this was of the second edition which has a different binding and title page.

London: Day and Son, 1864. [Byzantine Architecture] FIRST ENGLISH EDITION. Folio (44 x 31cm), pp.xii, 218. Illustrated with 70 tinted lithographic plates (including 12 in colour), each with a tissue guard, and many woodcuts. Rebound with the original publisher's purple cloth boards, decorated liberally in gilt to upper and blind to lower. Recent purple morocco spine with raised bands and gilt titles. All edges gilt. An ex-library copy with stamps to title page. Some repairs to margins of plates XI, XVII, XXI, XXVIII, XLIV and LV. No tissue guards for plates XII and XIII. Heavy chipping to edges of plate XXIX. Significant losses and repairs to margins of plate XLV. Light occasional spotting to plates generally, with some small occasional chips to plate margins and tissue guards. Corners bumped with some rubbing to cloth. Very good. Simultaneously published with the French edition. Most of the plates are after drawings by Texier, comprising floor plans, elevation drawings, engraved views, and colour illustrations of interior details of many important Byzantine churches in locations such as Thessalonika, Trebizond, and Bursa. Pullan edited the work form Texier's journals, at his request, and included accounts of his own work. This collaboration reflects journeys made at widely differing periods. Texier was in Asia Minor from 1833 to 1837, while Pullan was sent to Halicarnassus (Bodrum) in 1857 to survey the Mausoleum. C.T. Newton then sent him on to Cnidus and Kos, and in 1862 he began excavations at Teos on behalf of the Society of Dilettanti. He had visited most of the Byzan … [Click Below for Full Description]

Pantomime]
[N.p., but likely London, 1864. Ink and watercolor on thick paper, approximately 14 x 9 3/4 inches, mounted on foam core board approximately 15 1/2 x 11 1/4 inches. Minor edge wear, light soiling. Very good. An original ink-and-watercolor advertisement designed as a poster or a program cover for a popular pantomime show in London in 1864. The artwork may also have been created as a cover for the text of the play, though this is ultimately unknown. The colorful artwork incorporates one cutout onlay at center, featuring the miniature hero of the pantomime. He is dancing on an extended thumb within a sunburst circular design. At the base of the thumb is a group of eight owls. The various decorative scripts making up the text include a series of grotesque figures and ghouls spelling the word "PANTOMIME" in black. E.L. Blanchard's HOP O' MY THUMB AND HIS SEVEN BROTHERS opened at Drury Lane on December 26 of that year, and was met with much acclaim. According to Richards, the show "contained a series of transformations which seemed to celebrate progress and modernity: a villa and its grounds transformed into a railway station, a wagon into a steam threshing machine and a windmill and farmyard into a patent bread and biscuit factory." Pantomime shows were an annual tradition at Drury Lane between 1852 and 1888. Blanchard wrote and produced them all, with ample design assistance from the artist, William Beverley. In their review of HOP O' MY THUMB in December 1864, THE TIMES of London praised the performers of the show for executing their craft "in the best manner that circ … [Click Below for Full Description]

A presentation copy to Duc de Luynes signed by the author. Victor Guérin (1831 - 1891), was a French traveller who explored Palestine and Syria extensively, and produced several works on the Holy Land between 1852 and 1889. He joined the French school of archaeology at Athens in 1852, and was the first student to widen the field of activities of the school to include Asia Minor and Syria. He published books describing the geography, archaeology and history of the areas he explored, which included Greece, Asia Minor, North Africa, Syria and Palestine. Guerin visited the Holy Land eight times (1852, 1854, 1863, 1870, 1875, 1882, 1884, 1888). He won a French Academy of Sciences prize for this work which offers the reader a careful account of his travels, with a wealth of topographical annotations. Bibliographic reference: Rohricht p. 460.

Dos du tome 5 passé. . Première édition collective des oeuvres complètes de Lavoisier. De nombreux texte ont été imprimé dans cette édition pour la première fois. Cette importante publication fut décidée en 1843, mais ce n'est qu'en 1861 que le ministère de l'éducation charge officiellement de ce travailJean Baptiste Dumas, alors président de l'académie des sciences. En 1862 paraît le deuxième volume, rapidement suivi en 1864 du premier. Le décès de Dumas retarda la publication des deux derniers volumes qui ne fûrent publiés qu'en 1892 et 1893, ce qui explique la rareté des exemplaires complets des six volumes, ici tels que paru dans leur cartonnage éditieur d'origine.

E.C. Middleton, Cincinnati, 1864. Rare oloegraphic portrait of Abraham Lincoln by E.C. Middleton. With Middleton's Warranted Oil Colors imprint to the verso of the frame dated 1864. Between 1861 and 1873, E.C. Middleton of Cincinnati published a series oval oleographic portraits intended to have the appearance of oil paintings including thirteen "Portraits of American Statesmen and Heroes." Middleton invented the method of oleography which used the process of chromolithographic printing with oil based inks mounted on canvas. The portraits were exclusively sold in frames directly through agents by subscription. In fine condition. Framed. The portrait measures 17 inches by 14 inches. The entire piece measures 22 inches by 19 inches. Rare and desirable. Abraham Lincoln served as the 16th President of the United States from March 1861 until his assassination in April 1865. He led the United States through its Civil War, and in doing so preserved the Union of the United States of America, abolished slavery, and strengthened the federal government. Lincoln began constructing his cabinet on election night and sought to create a cabinet that would unite the Republican party. His eventual cabinet would include his primary rivals for the Republican nomination and although his appointees held differing views on economic issues all were opposed to the expansion of slavery into the territories of the United States. The most senior cabinet post of Secretary of State was appointed to William Seward who had recently failed to win the 1860 Republican presidential nomination and Lincoln's ch … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ever yours FN [Rest of signature torn of] Hempstead N.W. Aug [21/64?] Florence Nightingale (1820 - 1910) was an English social reformer and statistician, and the founder of modern nursing. Nightingale came to prominence while serving as a manager and trainer of nurses during the Crimean War, in which she organised care for wounded soldiers. She gave nursing a favourable reputation and became an icon of Victorian culture, especially in the persona of „The Lady with the Lamp" making rounds of wounded soldiers at night. In 1860, Nightingale laid the foundation of professional nursing with the establishment of her nursing school at St Thomas' Hospital in London. It was the first secular nursing school in the world and is now part of King's College London. Her social reforms included improving healthcare for all sections of British society, advocating b … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ever yours FN [Rest of signature torn of] Hempstead N.W. Aug [21/64?] Florence Nightingale (1820 - 1910) was an English social reformer and statistician, and the founder of modern nursing. Nightingale came to prominence while serving as a manager and trainer of nurses during the Crimean War, in which she organised care for wounded soldiers. She gave nursing a favourable reputation and became an icon of Victorian culture, especially in the persona of "The Lady with the Lamp" making rounds of wounded soldiers at night. In 1860, Nightingale laid the foundation of professional nursing with the establishment of her nursing school at St Thomas' Hospital in London. It was the first secular nursing school in the world and is now part of King's College London. Her social reforms included improving healthcare for all sections of British society, advocating bett … [Click Below for Full Description]

1864. "As a MAN OF THE PEOPLE, understanding them and trusted by them, he has proved himself the man for the time."[ABRAHAM LINCOLN]. [HENRY CHARLES LEA].Printed Pamphlet. No. 17: Abraham Lincoln, [March 1864]. 12 pp., 5¾ x 8¾ in.Excerpts:"What will be the place assigned by history to Abraham Lincoln?" (p3)"Few of us can forget the feelings of doubt and distrust with which we regarded his advent to the Presidential chair.... That his native energy had elevated him from a youth of poverty and labor was reassuring, and yet the narrow sphere in which his life had mostly been passed seemed to deprive him of the opportunities of familiarity with the great principles and details of statesmanship requisite for the perilous contingencies of the future." (p3-4)"Thus with doubt, confusion and demoralization around him, with no landmarks in the past to serve as a guide for the present or as a precedent for the future, did Mr. Lincoln undertake the awful responsibilities of his high position.... Thus relying on himself and on the people, he boldly set to work to restore the Republic." (p5)"The country was saved so soon as the people recognized in their President a man who believed that he could save it, and who honestly intended to do so. Had Abraham Lincoln done no more than this, he would have merited a place between Washington and Jackson. It is a great thing to lift a nation to the highest level of its duties and responsibilities, and few men to whom, in the world's history, the opportunity has been vouchsafed, have accomplished the task so thoroughly."

The Battle of Fisher's Hill was fought September 21-22, 1864, near Strasburg, Virginia, as part of the Valley Campaigns of 1864 during the American Civil War. Despite its strong defensive position, the Confederate army of Lt. Gen. Jubal Early was defeated by the Union Army of the Shenandoah, commanded by Maj. Gen. Philip Sheridan Sheridan had almost 35,000 men in the Shenandoah Valley opposing Early, with just under 10,000. Early, following the Third Battle of Winchester took a strong position. His right rested on the North Branch of the Shenandoah River. The left flank of his infantry was on Fisher's Hill. Confederate cavalry was expected to hold the ground from there to Little North Mountain. Maj. Gen. George Crook advised Sheridan to flank this position. His command was assigned to move along the wooded slopes of the mountain to attack the cavalry. Crook's attack began about 4 p.m. on September 22, 1864. … [Click Below for Full Description]

McClellan, George B.]
Published by Currier & Ives, 152 Nassau St., New York, 1864. Broadside lithograph, 13-1/4" x 17-3/4". Light soiling to far margins, Very Good. "Democratic presidential candidate George Brinton McClellan is lampooned as an incompetent military leader. He sits in a saddle mounted on the boom of the Union ironclad vessel Galena. He calls to his troops, 'Fight on my brave Soldiers and push the enemy to the wall, from this spanker boom your beloved General looks down upon you'. The print recalls two prominent failures in McClellan's tenure as commander of the Army of the Potomac, which haunted him during the 1864 campaign" [Reilly]. The Union ironclad 'Galena' suffered severe damage from Confederate batteries and was forced to withdraw from the approach to Richmond in May 1862. McClellan failed to bring nearby land troops to the Navy's aid. Soon thereafter, at the "disastrous conclusion" [id.] of the Peninsular Campaign, his troops were badly routed at the Battle of Malvern Hill, depicted in the lithograph's background. Reilly 1864-17. Weitenkampf 145. OCLC 191119909 [4- AAS, Clements, Peabody-Essex, DLC] as of October 2019.

1864. Condition: Very Good. Beautiful copy of this edition of bibliophiles, by which became known the editor and printer Léon Curmer (1801-1870). This book is distinguished above all by the extraordinary quality of the reproductions in the light of the technical qualities of the era, but also by the precision and the accuracy of the comments and descriptions accompanying. The first 2 volumes include 401 chromolithographs color after hours books and manuscripts, with a special focus on the rendering of the miniatures, borders and other decorations. The volume of Appendix to the Gospels contains the list of subscribers whose first is Napoleon III in person. This volume also contains Thanksgiving illustrated 80 original photographs from old engravings on copper; These illustrations make it one of the first books illustrated by photography; records, the ornamentation of the Appendix, the classification of the various schools of painting of the manuscripts. Pierre Larousse will say in his dictionary: "M. Curmer undertook the reproduction in color of old manuscripts. He succeeded beyond all hope. He searched and explored all libraries of the continent and England, there is no one important manuscript which is not represented in his editions of the Gospels of the Sundays. This last work, above all, by the importance of the reproductions, their variety, their authenticity, will remain as one of the most beautiful books that one has never tried to run".

Some discoloration in the image of the portraits of William Hutchings and Adam Link (almost certainly occurring during the production process of the photographs). Overall, a very good copy. This book is remarkable for its extraordinarily early mounted photographs of actual veterans of the American Revolution captured in their twilight years. Hillard produced it during the Civil War to inspire patriotic sentiments by providing verbal and visual portraits of the experienced old veterans.

An additional chapter on James Barham is unillustrated as he could not be found, although there was no record of his death. Hillard did not include the final surviving Revolutionary War veteran, Daniel Frederick Bakeman (1759-1869), because as of 1864 he had never applied for a pension.

1864. Rare Civil War era endorsement signed by Abraham Lincoln as President. Dated March 14, 1864, the endorsement reads, "Submitted to the Sec. of War & Gen. Meade. A. Lincoln, March 14, 1864." In fine condition. On March 14, 1864 Lincoln issued an order for the draft of 200,000 men to support the Union effort. Only two days prior, General Ulysses S. Grant assumed command of the Union armies. Matted and framed with and engraved portrait of Lincoln and gold biographical plaque. The endorsement measures 3.25 inches by 2.75 inches. The entire piece measures 22.75 inches by 19 inches. Abraham Lincoln served as the 16th President of the United States from March 1861 until his assassination in April 1865. He led the United States through its Civil War, and in doing so preserved the Union of the United States of America, abolished slavery, and strengthened the federal government. In his Address at the Sanitary Fair in Baltimore Maryland in April of 1861, Lincoln stated: "The world has never had a good definition of the word liberty, and the American people, just now, are much in want of one. We all declare for liberty; but in using the same word we do not all mean the same thing. With some the word liberty may mean for each man to do as he pleases with himself, and the product of his labor; while with others, the same word may mean for some men to do as they please with other men, and the product of other men's labor. Here are two, not only different, but incompatible things, called by the same name, liberty. And it follows that each of the things is, by the respective parties, … [Click Below for Full Description]
