        Secret Service or Recollections of a City Detective.

      8vo., recently bound in half speckled calf over marbled boards, spine lettered in gilt with gilt rules. A very good copy. First edition. Andrew Forrester was among several English writers who, inspired by Charles Dickens's Police Articles of 1850, wrote detective reminiscences. "Most of these so-called real life diaries were thinly disguised fiction written by anonymous and pseudonymous hacks. Immensely popular and literally read to death, these revelations vanished into limbo: less than sixty different titles are known today" (Queen's Quorum). Sadeir, who supposedly put together the largest collection of these books, lists this title in XIX Century Victorian Fiction in the Detection, Criminology, Various Professional and Specialist 'Experiences' 1856-1884 section [no. 3531], noting that "The majority are nowadays so uncommon that their very existence is almost unknown." This title does indeed seem scarce with only 5 copies recorded, 3 in the UK (BL, National Library of Scotland, Oxford University) and 2 in the USA (Emory and UCLA). Quayle in The Collector's Book of Detective Fiction explains their rarity this. "Nearly all these minor novelists saw their work published in the cheap but handy format of a single volume 'yellow-back' binding of paper-covered boards. It would be difficult, if not impossible, to make a worthwhile collection of 'yellow-back' first editions of detective fiction published before the early 1870s. They constitute the most important and interesting class of 'yellow-back' literature published, and appeared during the best (and now much the rarest ) phase of 'yellow-back' production between the late 1850s and mid 1870s. Many titles, known through the medium of advertisements in other volumes, seem to have completely disappeared. During the first 50 or so years of their existence they were despised by book collectors and dealers alike. The fate of most that survived the first few years was to be pulped in salvage drives for wastepaper during World War I. The rest nearly all disappeared between the wars, and few even found a place in the bookseller's sixpence box. Another war and another salvage drive, and the species was almost extinct." Although not in its original 'yellow-back' format this is nevertheless a rare opportunity to acquire an early example of the detective novel.

        THE LOYAL ROAD TO PEACE, AND THE DISLOYAL ROAD TO RUIN. PRESIDENT LINCOLN ON DEMOCRATIC STRATEGY.

      [np:. 1864]. 4pp, folded, caption title [as issued]. Light wear, Very Good. Judge Mills reports on his interview with President Lincoln. Lincoln explained that a Democratic victory would destroy the Union: "There are now in the service of the United States near 200,000 able-bodied colored men, most of them under arms, defending and acquiring Union territory. The Democratic strategy demands that these forces be disbanded, and that the masters be conciliated by restoring them to slavery." Mills thus "saw that the President was not a mere joker, but a man of deep convictions." Pages 3-4 demonstrate that the Democrats' platform, declaring the War a failure, has won the support of Jefferson Davis. Monaghan 331. OCLC 4774021 [9] [as of October 2014]. Not in Bartlett, LCP, or Sabin.

        Our Mutual Friend

      London: Chapman and Hall. Very Good. FIRST EDITION in book form of one of Dickens's greatest works. IN RARE PUBLISHER'S MOROCCO BINDING. "For Our Mutual Friend [Dickens] reverted to his traditional form of publication in twenty monthly numbers (May 1864-December 1865) and at first felt 'quite dazed,' he told Wilkie Collins, by the return to 'the large canvas and the big brushes' (ibid., 10.346). The illustrator chosen for the work was the orphaned son of an old artist friend, young Marcus Stone, who worked in the sentimental-realist style of 1860s book illustration, quite different from the caricatural style of Cruikshank and Browne. The novel with its panoramic treatment of contemporary society, complex plotting, scathing social satire, and masterly emblematic art recalls both Bleak House and Little Dorrit. It differs from these predecessors in a number of important ways, however. Most notably, both of the love stories at the heart of the book (the earlier novels each have only one main love story) end on a very positive note, neither involving retreat from the city as in the case of Esther and Alan Woodcourt in Bleak House, nor yielding themselves up to it as in the case of Little Dorrit and Arthur Clennam in Dorrit. Our Mutual Friend had a mixed reception (the young Henry James's harshly dismissive review in The Nation is notorious), but its stock has risen dramatically in recent years, and it is now generally regarded as one of his very greatest works" (DNB). First edition. Complete with 40 illustrations (20 plates per volume) engraved by Dalziel Brothers and W.T. Green. London: Chapman and Hall, 1865. Octavo, publisher's deluxe morocco, gilt-ruled and blind-stamped boards, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. Two volumes. Some scuffing to binding extremities. Text and plates exceptionally clean. An exquisite set, very rare in publisher's morocco.

        Two Civil War date documents related to the storied career of Confederate naval hero John Taylor Wood

      n.p., January 7, 1864. 7.5" x 9.5", 7" x 4". "Letter Signed, ""S B Mallory,"" as Secretary of the Confederate States Navy, 1 page, 7.5"" x 9.5"", Richmond, January 7, 1864 to Wood informing him that he had been promoted to the rank of Commander in the Navy. Offered together with (Robert F. Hoke), manuscript telegram, 1 page, 7"" x 4"", on ""[T]HE SOUTHERN TELEGRAPH COMPANIES"" letterhead, Kinston, [North Carolina], April 7, 1864 to John Taylor Wood, in cipher seeking information on the whereabouts of General Pickett. Mallory's letter features the usual folds with very light foxing, else fine; the telegram bears some marginal losses affecting printed text, minor partial fold separations, else very good.""You are hereby informed that the President has appointed you by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, a Commander in the Navy of the Confederate States, to rank from the 23d day of August 1863, 'for gallant and meritorious conduct in boarding and capturing with an expedition under your command on the Rappahannock River, on the 3d day of August 1863, the United States gun-boats 'Satellite' and 'Reliance,' mounting two guns each.' You are requested to acknowledge the receipt of this appointment."" The second document is a communication from General Robert F. Hoke, who was then preparing to attack Union-held Plymouth, North Carolina. John Taylor Wood coordinated the attack from Richmond. Hoke's cyphered message is translated on the verso: ""I am all ready. How are things progressing since you saw Genl Pickett"" The following week, Hoke's forces, in cooperation with the CSS Albemarle, defeated the Union garrison at Plymouth, which surrendered. According to a report from Union General Henry Wessells, ""Two comapnies belonging to the Second North Carolina (Union) Volunteers, were among the captured... the most of whom were taken out and show by the enmy after our forces had surrenderd. All the negroes found in uniform were also shot."" (""The Capture of Plymouth"", New York Times, April 26, 1864). John Taylor Wood (1830-1904) , the son of Union General Robert Wood and Anne Taylor, the daughter of President Zachary Taylor, graduated from the United States Naval Academy in 1852. Initially maintaining a neutral stance following the election of Abraham Lincoln in 1860, his sympathies headed South after the Battle of Fort Sumter. On April 21, 1861, he resigned his commission in the U.S. Navy and retired to his Maryland farm. The farming life did not last long, however, as life was becoming too dangerous. Fearing for the safety of his family, the Woods moved south to Richmond, Virginias where his uncle, Jefferson Davis, was now presiding over the Confederate capital (Jefferson Davis' first wife, Sarah Taylor, was Wood's mother's sister).In October 1861, Taylor received a commission as a lieutenant in the Confederate States Navy and became an officer aboard the C.S.S. Virginia (the former U.S.S. Merrimack) and fought against he U.S.S. Monitor at the Battle of Hampton Roads. Wood commanded the rear pivot gun and fired the shot that wounded the Monitor's captain. Appointed an aide-de-camp to President Jefferson Davis, Wood was awarded the rank and pay of a colonel of cavalry, giving him simultaneous commands in both the Confederate Army and Navy allowing him to serve as an effective liaison between the services and the government in Richmond. In that capacity, Wood undertook an extensive survey of Confederate costal defenses. During the summer of 1863, he led a series of successful raids against Union shipping in Chesapeake Bay. In the summer of 1864, Wood commanded the C.S.S. Tallahassee, a raider and blockade runner. During his tenure aboard the Tallahassee, he captured an astounding 33 Union ships during a ten-day period off the coast of New England. By April 1865, the situation looked grim for the Confederacy. Wood was with his uncle on April 2, attending St. Paul's Church in Richmond, when a telegram from Lee arrived informing the president that Petersburg would soon fall and the government must evacuate. That evening, he, Davis, and other members of the Confederate government boarded a train for Danville, Virginia. They continued their flight south, where, on May 10, 1865, near the town of Irwinsville, Georgia, Davis and Wood were both captured by Union forces. Wood soon made his escape, with his uncle's permission, by bribing one of his captors and hiding in a nearby swamp until the Federals and their prisoners left the area. Wood made his way south to Florida and met up with Major General John C. Breckinridge. Acquiring a small boat, Wood, Breckinridge, and several other men first attempted to row east to The Bahamas, but abandoned the plan and decided to instead make their way south toward Cuba. He managed to trade with a crew of Union deserters his boat for their slightly bigger sloop. They reached the north shore of Cuban on June 10. He remained in Cuba for two weeks before heading north to Canada, where his family soon joined him. Reunited, they settled in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and remained there for the rest of their lives. John Taylor Wood died on July 19, 1904. "

        Homoeopathic Physician's Commonplace Scrapbook and Ledger

      Philadelphia, Ann Arbor, Owatonna, and Detroit, 1864. Scrapbook. Good to Very Good. 1864-1881. The album measures 6" x 15.5" and contains approximately 75 pages filled with ledger entries, scores of mostly medically related newspaper clippings, and about 35 ephemeral pieces including business cards, advertisements, printed letters, receipts, prescription blanks, dunning notices, medical society notices, reference book announcements, journal indexes, etc. The original spine has perished and been replace with what appears to be reinforced paper tape. The covers and pages are worn. All but one of the leaves are still attached, however several are beginning to separate. The newspaper clippings have been pasted over most of the ledger entries. Almost all of the clippings and some of the ephemera have been stained by the glue Gilchrist used to affix them to the pages. Gilchrist received his medical degree from the Homoeopathic Medical College of Pennsylvania following his service in the Civil War. He remained at that school as an anatomy instructor until 1867 when he became a Professor of Surgery at the University of Michigan for two years until he began his private practice in Owatonna, Minnesota, after which he served as the Chief of Staff for the Detroit Homoeopathic Hospital. In the mid-1880s, Gilchrist transferred to the University of Iowa where he was appointed as both a Professor of English and Professor of Homoeopathic Medicine. He remained at Iowa as the Chair of Surgery within the College of Homoeopathic Medicine until shortly before his in 1906. Scarce. As of 2016, no similar American homoeopathic scrapbooks, journals, or diaries are in the trade, although one from Europe is priced at $5,000. No auction records for similar items per ABPC or Rare Book Hub. OCLC shows no similar items at institutions however a series of scrapbooks with biographic clippings about homoeopathic physicians is at Drexel University, and the proceedings of the 1994 San Francisco Conference on Culture, Knowledge, and Healing contain the results of a survey by Arnold Michalousk showing ephemera and manuscripts from homoeopathic physicians are held by 22 institutions.

Hall discovered , 'some actual relics of the expedition of Martin Frobisher' three centuries earlier and 'made deductions in favour of yet discovering some of the survivors of Sir John Franklin's expedition.' Charles Francis Hall (1821-71) was an American Arctic explorer. Around 1857, he became interested in the Arctic and spent the next few years studying the reports of previous explorers and trying to raise money for an expedition, primarily intended to learn the fate of Sir John Franklin's lost expedition. Hall's first expedition in 1860–63 left New Bedford on the whaler 'George Henry' under Captain Sidney O. Budington, whose uncle James Budington had salvaged Edward Belcher's exploration ship HMS Resolute, also on the 'George Henry'. He got as far as Baffin Island, where he was forced to winter. The Inuit told Hall of surviving relics from Martin Frobisher's mining venture at Frobisher Bay on Baffin Island. Hall soon travelled there to see them first-hand, drawing upon the inestimable assistance of his newly found Inuit guides Ebierbing ("Joe") and Tookoolito ("Hannah"). He also learned what he interpreted as evidence that some members of Franklin's lost expedition might still be alive. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Civil War Musician's Bound Volume of Sheet Music

      Half Leather. Very Good. Folio - over 12" - 15" tall. This bound volume of sheet music was compiled by Private Francis (Frank) D. Orcutt, a musician serving in the 7th Battalion Illinois Volunteer Infantry. His service included Sherman's March through Georgia to the Sea and the capture of Savannah. There are 37 pieces of music in the volume, several of which are first printings that pertain to Orcutt's service in Georgia including: "We Are Coming or the Prisoners Release," "Tramp, Tramp, Tramp, or the Prisoners Hope," "We've Drunk from the Same Canteen" (inscribed "To Frank From F.Y.H. / Memento, Christmas 1864, Savannah Ga," and "Marching Through Georgia" (for many years the most hated song in the South). Other Civil War music includes "Johnny is My Darling" (first printing) "When Johnny Comes Marching Home" (first printing), "The Bonnie Flag with the Stripes and Stars" (in answer the "Bonnie Blue Flag"), "That's What's the Matter" (first printing of a Stephen Foster war song), "Washington and Lincoln" (first printing), and "A Gloom is Cast O'er All the Land" (first printing). Other important music in the volume includes two pieces by the Alleghanians and the Baker Family with portrait covers, "Little Eva: Uncle Tom's Guardian Angel" (first printing of John Greeleaf Whittier's work with an illustrated cover), "Our Good Friends" (a Septimus Winner composition written using his Alice Hawthorne pseudonym with a portrait cover), "If You've Only Got a Moustache" (first printing of a comic song by Stephen Foster), and "She Was the World To Me" (first printing of Stephen Foster's last song, published posthumously). Probably bound as a volume in the late 1860s. Sound binding. Some of the pieces have pre-binding wear, soiling, and repairs. Foxing to a few of the pieces. The cover has some minor wear. Overall, a very nice collection of sheet music made all the more significant having been assembled by a Civil War musician.

        Autograph letter signed "H. Berlioz," possibly to Georges Hainl, conductor of the Paris Opéra

      - 2 pp. of a bifolium. Octavo. Dated ca. late October 1864-1865. In black ink. In French (with translation). An important letter in which Berlioz includes information for the first playbill of a projected concert performance of excerpts from his grand opera, Les Troyens. He lists the names and addresses of the singers who are to appear: Mme. [Anne] Charton-Demeur, Mlle. [Palmyre] Wertheimber, Mr. [Jules] Montjauze, Mr. [Louise-Émile?] Wartel, Mr. Péront, Mr. Legrand, and Mlle. Estagel. He also mentions a Mr. [?Prosper] Bagier, likely the director of the Théâtre-Italien in Paris. Finally, he includes a number of special woodwind and percussion instruments that must be added to the orchestra. "Here are the addresses and a short agenda. You will find the last five artists at the Théâtre Lyrique on evenings when they play Violetta. [You] will include the names of the artists only later, in order not to upset Mr. Bagier."Slightly worn and stained; creased at folds. Berlioz was the leading French composer, conductor, and critic of his age. "In many senses the Romantic movement found its fullest embodiment in him, yet he had deep Classical roots and stood apart from many manifestations of that movement. His life presents the archetypal tragic struggle of new ideas for acceptance. and though there were many who perceived greatness in his music from the beginning, his genius only came to full recognition in the 20th century." Hugh Macdonald in Grove Music Online.Although Berlioz finished Les Troyens in 1858, it was not performed in its complete form until years after his death, in 1890. The première of Acts 3-5, which included several of the singers mentioned in this letter, occurred at the Théâtre Lyrique in Paris on November 4, 1863. The performance mentioned in this letter may have taken place in late 1864 or 1865. ("Violetta"--i.e. the French version of Verdi's La Traviata--enjoyed 102 performances at the Théatre Lyrique between October 27, 1864 and 1865.) The intended recipient of this letter was perhaps Georges Hainl (1807-1873), conductor of the Paris Opéra and the Société des Concerts du Conservatoire from 1863 until 1872.

"Manuscript letter accomplished on a partly-printed Document, 1 page, 8"" x 5.75"" on a form for ""THE SOUTHERN TELEGRAPH COMPANIES,"" Richmond, July 12, 1864, in an unknown hand, being a received transcription of a telegram from Jefferson Davis to General George Washington Custis Lee informing him that he had ordered the abandonment of a daring plan to raid Washington in the summer of 1864.Davis' telegram reads in full: ""Sent telegram this morning to Col Jno T Wood to indicate my belief that the attempt would not be fruitless[.] If you have not other information I advise abandonment of project"" With the situation rapidly deteriorating on the Southern home front as Grant's army pushed relentlessly toward Richmond, Davis chose to undertake several risky operations to both boost Confederate morale and dampen the reelection prospects for President Lincoln that fall. One of the measures was a planned expedition to the Union prisoner of war camp established at Point Lookout, Maryland, located at the confluence of the Potomac River and Chesapeake Bay. The plan, which was co-commanded by G.W. Custis Lee and John Taylor Wood, was to lead a detachment from Jubal Early's army, who were then advancing north into the Shenandoah Valley to make an attempt on Washington. Wood was to secure two steamers at Wilmington, North Carolina capable of capturing the Union gunboats guarding Point Lookout. Davis also ordered that Wood secure arms to distribute to the freed prisoners so they could join in Early's planned attack on Washington. However by July 10, it had become obvious to Davis that the plan had been compromised and instead ordered that he take command of the converted blockade runner, Atlanta, re-christened as the C.S.S. Tallahassee, to raid Union shipping along the eastern seaboard. Wood commenced his cruise on August 4, 1864. By the time he reached Halifax, he had captured thirty-three Union vessels. John Taylor Wood (1830-1904) , the son of Union General Robert Wood and Anne Taylor, the daughter of President Zachary Taylor, graduated from the United States Naval Academy in 1852. Initially maintaining a neutral stance following the election of Abraham Lincoln in 1860, his sympathies headed South after the Battle of Fort Sumter. On April 21, 1861, he resigned his commission in the U.S. Navy and retired to his Maryland farm. The farming life did not last long, however, as life was becoming too dangerous. Fearing for the safety of his family, the Woods moved south to Richmond, Virginia where his uncle, Jefferson Davis, was now presiding over the Confederate capital (Jefferson Davis' first wife, Sarah Taylor, was Wood's mother's sister).In October 1861, Taylor received a commission as a lieutenant in the Confederate States Navy and became an officer aboard the C.S.S. Virginia (the former U.S.S. Merrimack) and fought against he U.S.S. Monitor at the Battle of Hampton Roads. Wood commanded the rear pivot gun and fired the shot that wounded the Monitor's captain. Appointed an aide-de-camp to President Jefferson Davis, Wood was awarded the rank and pay of a colonel of cavalry, giving him simultaneous commands in both the Confederate Army and Navy allowing him to serve as an effective liaison between the services and the government in Richmond. In that capacity, Wood undertook an extensive survey of Confederate costal defenses. During the summer of 1863, he led a series of successful raids against Union shipping in Chesapeake Bay. In the summer of 1864, Wood commanded the C.S.S. Tallahassee, a raider and blockade runner. During his tenure aboard the Tallahassee, he captured an astounding 33 Union ships during a ten-day period off the coast of New England. By April 1865, the situation looked grim for the Confederacy. Wood was with his uncle on April 2, attending St. Paul's Church in Richmond, when a telegram from Lee arrived informing the president that Petersburg would soon fall and the government must evacuate. That evening, he, Davis, and other members of the Confederate government boarded a train for Danville, Virginia. They continued their flight south, where, on May 10, 1865, near the town of Irwinsville, Georgia, Davis and Wood were both captured by Union forces. Wood soon made his escape, with his uncle's permission, by bribing one of his captors and hiding in a nearby swamp until the Federals and their prisoners left the area. Wood made his way south to Florida and met up with Major General John C. Breckinridge. Acquiring a small boat, Wood, Breckinridge, and several other men first attempted to row east to The Bahamas, but abandoned the plan and decided to instead make their way south toward Cuba. He managed to trade with a crew of Union deserters his boat for their slightly bigger sloop. They reached the north shore of Cuban on June 10. He remained in Cuba for two weeks before heading north to Canada, where his family soon joined him. Reunited, they settled in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and remained there for the rest of their lives. John Taylor Wood died on July 19, 1904. "

ALL the ads called for by Hatton & Cleaver are present, except for the rare ad "The Economic Life Assurance Society" following the plates in part 14. FIRST ISSUE of the wrappers, without the imprint at the foot of front wrapper of part1. In the Advertiser of part 10, Hatton & Cleaver states, "In a few copies seen, p. 13 was misprinted "31." The present copy has this misprint. The plates are very good to fine; the text and wrappers are clean and bright and without repair. Part 9 with text unopened. Several spines are expertly and invisibly renewed. Our Mutual Friend has more of the Advertiser ads than any of Dickens' other works, having 320 pages and 89 insets and slips in the rear of the parts. Altogether a brilliant set, lacking just one (rare) ad and having the first issue points in the wrappers and a rare misprint in the Advertiser of part 10. This fine set is the best we are likely to find, and it has a pedigree - it is from the famed (Thomas) Hatton & Cleaver collection.
