      [Various places including New Haven, but mainly Beaufort and Port Royal, S.C.], 1864. Typical age toning and foxing, else very good condition. A wonderful Civil War archive consisting of fifty-seven letters spanning 1861 through 1864. Forty-nine letters of the letters are written by Halsey Bartlett, with eight letters by Bartlett's fellow soldiers or contemporaries after Bartlett's death on the battlefield. Halsey Bartlett was from Killingly, Connecticut, and enlisted in the Union Army as a private on Aug. 21, 1861. On Sept. 3 he mustered into Co. "A," 6th Connecticut Infantry, and went to training camp in New Haven. Finding himself in an army camp four days after mustering in, he wrote a letter to his mother and sister (the majority of the letters contained within are addressed to them) and describes life in camp, including the singing of hymns, the rations for the day, and the name of the regiment's commander, Col. John Chatfield, who was "in the Bull Run Battle." By mid-October, Bartlett and the men of the 6th Connecticut find themselves heading south to join Gen. Thomas W. Sherman's Port Royal Expedition in South Carolina. While aboard the Steamer Marion on Oct. 27, 1861, he writes to his mother, echoing the sentiment found in so many early Civil War letters, that he does not believe "this war will last more than six months. Fremont has a large force under him. He is coming down the Missippi [sic] River and this Division under Gen. Sherman of 75000 is to meet him and one Great Battle is to be fought which will end the war." That "Great Battle" was never realized, and on Jan. 16, 1862 he writes that his regiment has "not been in any Battle yet," but that would change three months later, with their participation in the Siege of Fort Pulaski: "April 7, 1862....While I am writing I can hear Heavy Cannons firing from some place. It sounds up in the direction of Fort Pulaski. There is a battle somewhere." The regiment was engaged in the Battles of Secessionville and Pocotaligo before taking part in the second assault on Fort Wagner (Morris Island, South Carolina, July 18, 1863), where their commander, Col. Chatfield, was wounded and later died. Seven weeks after the failed assault, the Union Army was still laying siege to the fort. In a letter dated Sept. 6, 1863, Bartlett, writing from Hilton Head, states he was "on Guard last night and I could hear the Guns from our Batteries on Morris Island and it seemed that they had opened every Gun for such a noise I have never heard in the shooting cessation whatever from Eight o'clock last night until daylight this morning." Later that night the Confederate garrison abandoned the fort. Eight days later he writes: "Morris Island is all ours now and hope other strongholds about Charleston will ere long will be ours." The following spring the 6th Connecticut moved north into Virginia, where they participated in the Bermuda Hundred Campaign. Writing again to his sister on May 29, 1864, Bartlett thanks He that "ruleth the whole Nation above and below that I am still alive for I have been in some very hard battles since I came here....Many who came here with us who were in the best of health are no more. Oh this cruel war when will it be over? I feel now is the time to prepare for the great change before it is too late and by all that I can do with Gods help I will try to live alright so that if we do not meet again on Earth we can meet on the other shore where all is love and sin is no more." Sadly for Private Bartlett, his war would end less than three weeks later in the bloody Wilderness Campaign. In a letter from Sergeant Earl W. Fisher to his uncle (likely Bartlett's father), dated June 18, 1864, less than three weeks after Bartlett's last letter, Fisher relays the sad news: "It has become my very sad duty to inform that cousin Halsey was Killed yesterday while on Picket-duty in front of our Battry. He was instantly Killed by a Rebel sharp shooter while in the Rifle pits. The ball entering in the right side and passing up through the heart. He only spoke and asked the boys to carry him off quick and died....I thought you could break the very sad news to Aunt much better than I could so I write to you the facts as they are to me." There are several more letters concerning the death of Bartlett, one of which is written by the lieutenant commanding the company, Hiram L. Grant, regarding the pay that was owed to him when he died and the fate of his effects. Civil War correspondence archives from soldiers killed in battle are rare, especially an archive consisting of almost fifty letters from the fallen soldier. The letters are stored in plastic sleeves and neatly arranged chronologically in two binders, making it easy to follow Bartlett's journey through the war, and to his untimely demise on a Virginia battlefield.

      Hartford, 1864. 12mo. Original half leather and pebbled green cloth, front board gilt, spine gilt. Some rubbing and spotting to cloth. Very good. This book is remarkable for its extraordinarily early mounted photographs of actual veterans of the American Revolution. Hillard produced it during the Civil War to inspire patriotic sentiments by providing verbal and visual portraits of the experienced old veterans. The colored lithographs show their homes. The persons photographed are Samuel Downing, Daniel Waldo, Lemuel Cook, Alexander Millener, William Hutchings, and Adam Link. An additional chapter on James Barham is unillustrated as he could not be found, although there was no record of his death. The photographs provide a remarkable reach back in time, showing persons born in the 1750s and 1760s. "The photographs were made uniformly under makeshift circumstances as would have been required if the photographs were made IN SITU while Hillard visited each for a personal interview" - TRUTHFUL LENS. A truly wonderful little book. This copy does not contain a facsimile of a letter written by Edward Everett, who served as both a congressman and governor of Massachusetts, commenting on the work. The original letter was written within days of Everett's death on Jan. 15, 1865, and the facsimile is not found in all copies.

        The Small House at Allington.

      London: Smith, Elder & Co.,, 1864. 2 volumes, octavo. Original green vermiculated cloth, spines lettered in gilt with elaborate design of crossed croquet-mallets with interstitial oak-leaves gilt, floral panel-stamp to covers with central motif of titles and floral sprays enclosing chicken-coop vignette gilt to fronts, brown-coated endpapers with publisher's advertisements printed on pastedowns. Housed in a custom morocco-backed green cloth slipcase and chemise. Wood-engraved frontispiece with tissue-guard and 8 similar plates to each volume, all by John Everett Millais. Spines gently rolled and a little rubbed at head and foot, corners bumped, small portion of rubbing towards upper outer corner of vol. I front board, very small indentation to head of front board vol. II, inner hinges sometime neatly reinforced, very light spotting largely restricted to front- and endmatter. An excellent copy. First edition, from the library of Walter E. Smith, the pre-eminent modern bibliographer of 19th-century fiction and author of Anthony Trollope: A Bibliography of his First American Editions, with his ownership inscription in pencil to the initial blank of the first volume. Trollope's "supreme work of art" (Hennessy) was originally serialised in the Cornhill Magazine from September 1862 to April 1864, and published in book form by Smith, Elder in March. It was the author's third novel to illustrated by Millais, after Framley Parsonage and Orley Farm. Having provided the illustrations for Phineas Finn (1867-1869), Millais "more or less refused to do any more … - because, no doubt, he was becoming more and more well-paid and fashionable as a portrait painter … [Nevertheless,] in his biography Trollope writes of Millais in the highest terms, declaring that unlike some opinionated illustrators … [he] simply wished 'to promote the views of the writer'" (ibid.) A particularly handsome example of the scarce original cloth.

        Ancient Syriac documents relative to the earliest establishment of Christianity in Edessa and the neighbouring countries from the year after our Lord's ascension to the beginning of the fourth century.

      London, Williams and Norgate, 1864. - Folio (232 x 295 mm). (2), XIV, 196, 112 pp. Contemp. blindstamped cloth with giltstamped title to spine. First edition. - In 1837, Cureton (1808-64), assistant keeper of manuscripts in the British Museum and the only oriental scholar in the department, was commissioned to prepare a catalogue of the Arabic manuscripts, the first part of which appeared in 1846. "But a new study had already engaged Cureton's attention. During his official occupation at the British Museum immense additions had been made to the collection of Syriac manuscripts. When he entered the department these numbered about eighty; but the accession of numerous manuscripts of the highest importance from the Nitrian monasteries, which were purchased and brought over partly by the mediation of Dr. Tattam in 1841 and 1843, raised the total to nearly six hundred. Cureton, who knew nothing of Syriac when he came to the department, set himself zealously to work to conquer the not very serious difficulties of the language, and to set in order and classify the new acquisitions from the Nitrian valley. His labours while drawing up an outline catalogue were amply rewarded by the discovery of many manuscripts of the highest interest" (DNB). The present work was published, after his death following a railway accident, by William Wright (1830-89). - Occasional slight foxing; on the whole an excellent, unusually wide-margined copy. From the library of the Ducs de Luynes at the Château de Dampierre: their bookplate reproducing the arms of Charles Marie d'Albert de Luynes (1783-1839), 7th Duc de Luynes, on pastedown.

        Check / Cheque Accomplished and Signed

      1864. Payable to "Mr Curtis." In the amount of 2 pounds 11 shillings. London: Messrs. Coutts & Compy., 4 May 1864. The only "Mr. Curtis" with whom Dickens is known to have corresponded was George William Curtis, the American writer and orator who, in 1864 (the year of this cheque) was the new editor of Harper's Weekly and Harper's New Monthly Magazine. In fact, it was the month following this cheque that OUR MUTUAL FRIEND began American serialization in Harper's New Monthly Magazine. (At the farewell dinner for Dickens in New York City, at the end of his 1868 American tour, it would be Curtis who would deliver the oration of the evening; Forster, in his biography of Dickens, notes that "visitors from America, among them George William Curtis, had always a grateful reception" in the Dickens household.)~In any case, the cheque, exhibiting a grand example of Dickens's signature, is in fine condition -- archivally inset into an acid-free paper frame.
