        WHAT GENUINE DEMOCRATS THINK OF THE REBELLION.

      National Union Executive Committee,, [New York: 1864 - Broadsheet, 9" x 11.5". Caption title [as issued], printed in double columns. Light spotting, Good+. An 1864 campaign broadsheet, attacking the Democratic Party for refusing to condemn "those leaders of the old Democratic party who plotted the overthrow of the Government and the disruption of the Union." Instead, at their Chicago Convention "they denounced the war against the Rebellion." The opinions of War Democrats who support the government and oppose their Party's peace-at-any- price platform are prominently displayed. These include Generals Daniel E. Sickles, A.J. Smith, John A. Dix, Benjamin F. Butler, and John A. Logan. They condemn supporters of the Democratic platform, and treasonous remarks of Copperheads like Ohio Representative Clement Vallandigham. "Here are the opinions and sentiments of some of the ablest and most distinguished DEMOCRATS of the United States. Will you listen to them, or to the conspirators and sham-Democrats who misrepresented the Democratic sentiment of the country at Chicago? Which is the truest Democrat, General Jack Logan, of Illinois, or Vallandigham, of Ohio?" Not in Nevins, Bartlett, Sabin. OCLC locates nine copies under three accession numbers [as of May 2016].

        The Cradle of Rebellion: A History of the Secret Societies of France

      New York: John Bradburn. Hardcover. 479 pages. Translated from the French. "The object in translating this work, the production of a sparkling and witty French writer, De La Hodde, is to show the dangerous consequences, to society and government, arising from the practices of secret associations. It gives a perfect illustration of the operations of these associations in bringing about the present unprincipled rebellion in the United States. French characters, similar to the leading conspirators against our own government, are set forth in a way that gives the reader a clear insight into the science of demagogism, and lays open that nefarious class of political transactions which must tend to the ruin of any country whatever, and especially to one which is governed by republican institutions. New light is shed upon the darkling work of secret societies; their demoralizing consequences to society are exposed, and their deeds of subterraneous deceit and treachery brought to the contempt and detestation of all good, true, and loyal men." - from Preface. A heavily worn former library copy with the usual markings. Those with an interest in more recent conspiracies may be interested to know that this copy previously belonged to the University of Chicago Library. . Fair. 1864. Reprint.

        Alexander Stephens on Mismanagement of Confederate Government and Economy

      1864 - Autograph Letter Signed as Confederate Vice President, Crawfordville, Ga., April 29, 1864, to James A. Seddon, Confederate Secretary of War. 8 pp (the first 4 and last 4 of what was a 16-page letter), 4 1/2 x 7 in. "You can not possibly regret more sincerely or profoundly my disagreement with members of the administration upon some of the late measures of Legislation than I do myself. [The crops] should be & should have been husbanded & guarded as gold. Not a grain of corn or blade of grass should have been wasted or lost or misapplied. Many plantations have been virtually abandoned to the negroes without any suitable superintendent. Many persons still at home under the uncertainty of getting details are failing to plant their usual crops."Vice President Stephens writes the Secretary of War strongly voicing his objections to acts passed by the Confederate Congress and about the economic, social, and military disintegration of the Confederacy. Excerpt. How the editor became possessed of that portion of my communication I did not know and I added most truthfully that it was a matter of very bitter consequence to me. I saw to my mortification that the editor had put an erroneous construction upon my motives & feelings in using the words I did. The Editor alluded to had exhibited (privately, not published) the extract alluded to. He showed it as evidence of my "bitterness, hostility and malignancy" (I quote his words) against the administration. Entertaining no such feelings or anything kindred to them I did not wish Judge Campbell to draw any such inference. You can not possibly regret more sincerely or profoundly my disagreement with members of the administration upon some of the late measures of Legislation than I do myself. And nothing could have induced me to have taken public position against them but a sense of public duty arising from a strong conviction of the mischievous and dangerous tendency of those measures, founded as they were in my judgment upon great and radical errors. But in this as in all differences amongst common friends in a great common cause I assure you I was influenced by nothing except what I regarded as the public good. I was not influenced in the slightest degree by feelings of hostility or bitterness, to say nothing of malignancy, towards a single mortal who disagreed with me. . and to continue to issue them [treasury notes] with this semblance of integrity of purpose will but result in greater mischief in the end.The tithe therefore should be & should have been husbanded & guarded as gold. Not a grain of corn or blade of grass should have been wasted or lost or misapplied. Our production of provisions this year will be greatly lessened from another cause. That is the general derangement of labor and the management of large planting interests as well as small under the last military act. The uncertainty of whether parties could get what is called details [ie work details] has caused many to make arrangements to suit themselves. Many have gone into the army, rather than be conscripted. Many plantations have been virtually abandoned to the negroes without any suitable superintendent. Many persons still at home under the uncertainty of getting details are failing to plant their usual crops. In my judgment this organization of what is now called the reserve force is almost a farce. It would be indeed a farce if it were not for the serious consequences attending it. There will hardly be as many able bodied men sent to the army under its operation as there are useless drones and consumers engaged in it. As a reserved corps to be relied on in emergency the State Militia organization would have been much more efficient and the agricultural or other interests would not have been so much deranged by relying on that. But enough of this. I find I am writing much more than I intended when I set out. What I have said is with great freed. (See website for full description)

        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1864 - 1864 Wisden : Paperback with Facsimile Spine and Covers

      Hi, This is a Wisden from the Adrian Ellis Collection. 1864 : Paperback with facsimile Spine and Covers - 1st Edition! This Wisden was first listed as a rebind, it was from the Auty collection and hence we thought it was a valid listing with the Auty boards, however the binding wasputting pressure on the frist 2 pages and they were starting to tear down the line of the binding which was 1cm into the book and hence we took the book out of the binding and added facimile covers and a spine and touched up the small tear that was appearing. We have kept the Auty page if needed. The covers and spine are very well made and internally the book is nice and clean, there is some rounding to the pages and the last page has a small loss to the top of it as can be seen in the pictures. A small tear was forming thanks to the binding to the first 2 pages, this has been repaired.

        ELEGANTLY WRITTEN MANUSCRIPT LETTER, SIGNED, TO NEW YORK ATTORNEY FRANCIS H. UPTON, REGARDING JOUETT'S CAPTURE OF A REBEL BLOCKADE RUNNER AND HIS ENTITLEMENT TO PRIZE MONEY.

      May 16, 1864, U.S.S. 'Metacomet' off Mobile : - [4]pp, folio sheet folded to 12-1/2" x 8", printed on rectos only. Fine. Signed at the end, "Very Respectfully &c | Your obdt Servt | Jas. E. Jouett | Lieut Comdr | U.S.N." Jouett, known as "Fightin Jim" Jouett, ended his illustrious career as a Rear Admiral. His Letter is an enlightening illumination of the issues involving maritime prizes. A Kentuckian, he was a career Navy man who served in the Mexican War and on the African Coast with Matthew C. Perry. During the Civil War, after having been captured at Pensacola and released, he commanded the 'Montgomery' and 'Cuyler' on blockading duty; in September 1863 he was transferred to the command of the 'Metacomet', where he wrote this letter. In the Battle of Mobile Bay, under Admiral Farragut, he distinguished himself and was a witness to Farragut's famous command, "Damn the Torpedoes! Full speed ahead!" [See, XVII 'The United Service: A Monthly Review of Military and Naval Affairs', January 1897, pages 17-36]. Jouett's Letter to Upton: "I commanded the U.S.S. 'R.R. Cuyler' of Mobile Bar, in the Squadron of Admiral D.G. Farragut- who was then (June 25th, 1863) Comdg at Vicksburg. "Orders were sent from the Navy Dept June 9th to Admiral Farragut to send the 'R.R. Cuyler' north, Orders were sent me off Mobile of June 25th, 1863 and given to me by the Senior Officer comdg off Mobile to proceed to the Navy Yard at Phila. in person, and to the Secy of the Navy by letter. The Admiral expressed his regret at losing myself & vessel, & hoped we might be restored to him &c. "I sailed from off Mobile July 9th and off the Tortugas I chased & captured the Rebel Str. 'Kate Dale' from Mobile. I was beyond Admiral Farragut's jurisdiction by several hundred miles, & was in Admiral Bailey's. The prize was taken to Phila. and I was told by the Prize Commissioners that I was perfectly entitled to 3/20, and that I was on detached service- the District Attorney also said it was a plain case, and needed no argument. The Court decreed that the 'R.R. Cuyler' was the only vessel entitled to share in the Prize. The Dept by some unknown law, has given Admiral Farragut 1/20, which in the opinion of the Court, the Commissioners, & Dist. Attorney, they had no right to do. Will you please give me a written opinion as to the merits of the case; whether I was on detached service, & whether the Admiral whose squadron I had been in, was entitled to share? I have since my reporting to the Dept, been ordered to different ships, the 'R.R. Cuyler' has now rejoined this squadron. "This is a case which may involve many cases yet to come. In a similar case of the U.S.S. 'Octorara' Comdr D.D. Porter was ordered to proceed from below Vicksburg (about July 10th, 1862) to Fortress Monroe, on the way north, when off Charleston S.C. she captured the Eng. Str 'Jubal Cain' from Nassau. The 'Jubal Cain' was subsequently condemned, and Commander Porter received as his share of the proceeds three twentieths 3/20 of the portion awarded to the captures. "Admiral Farragut commanded in person at Vicksburg, when the 'Octorara' was ordered North." The Letter's recipient, Francis H. Upton, was "An eminent lawyer of New York City," specializing in admiralty law, the author of several legal treatises [Adams, 'Dictionary of American Authors', page 394 (Houghton Mifflin: 1901)], and thus a perfect choice to act as Jouett's attorney. He was evidently a friend of Herman Melville. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. Würzburg, 8. XII. 1864.

      1864. 1 S. auf Doppelblatt. Gr.-4to. Mit eh. Adresse (Faltbrief). An Hofkapellmeister Vinzenz Lachner in Mannheim: "[...] Ueberbringer dieses, Hr. Tür de Séchelles, Mitinhaber des in Bruchsal errichteten Inter National Instituts, hat eine tragische Oper in 3 Akten 'Spartacus' gedichtet, und in Folge in Musik gesetzt. Dichter und Komponist hegen nun natürlich den lebhaften Wunsch, ihr Werk und zwar vor allem an einer renommierten Bühne aufgeführt zu sehen. Eine solche aber ist vorzugsweise die Mannheimer Bühne, an welcher speziell die Oper durch das Verdienst ihres Meisters und Leiters, durch Ihr Verdienst, hochgeehrter Herr, weit berühmt ist [...]". - Im Hauptberuf städtischer Beamter und zuletzt bis 1855 als Stadtkämmerer tätig, widmete Becker sich der Musik und gründete und leitete mehrere Gesangsvereine in Würzburg. "Als Komponist zahlreicher, teilweise preisgekrönter Chor- und Studentenlieder (u.a. das Frankenlied 'Wohlauf, die Luft geht frisch und rein') war er auch im Ausland bekannt. Ferner schuf er Instrumentalstücke, Kirchenkompositionen und Opern ('Die Bergknappen', 1837)" (DBE). - Etwas angestaubt und mit stärkeren Läsuren am rechten Rand.

        Le Temple De Jerusalem Monographie Du Haram-Ech-Cherif Suivi d’Un Essay Sur La Topographie De La Ville-Sainte.

      Noblet & Baudry, Paris 1864 - (445 x 320 mm), 37 plates of which 11 are coloured by hand, there also an extra plate of the interior of the Mosque of Omar, not mentioned in the table + 57 figures; raised gilt decorated spine, gitl top edges, marbled endpapers, binding signed by « Pralon reliure à Dijon», covers slightly rubbed, Armorial non identified Bookplate « H. I. C. vincit », scattered foxing throughout. Charles-Jean-Melchior de Vogüé (1829–1916) embarked on an extensive survey of the Aksa mosque. He was accompanied by another archaeologist William H, Waddington, an artist E. Duthoit, and later Henri Sauvaire the French Consul in Beirut as a photographer. With the help of the French Consul in Jerusalem Mr. de Barrere, he was able to acquire a permission from the Ottoman authorities to start his research in the Aksa mosque. De Vogue examined the stones of the mosque, its wall and describe his findings in this work. The different surveys of the mosque in the 19th century attest the growing Western interests in the Holy Land. The importance of de Vogue’s work lies in the fact that he found remnants of ancient frescoes which were destroyed during a previous restoration. The appendix in this work deals in details with the topography of Jerusalem. Bibliographic reference: Tobler p. 187. Size: Folio [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Trial and Sentence of Franz Muller for the Murder of Mr Briggs on.

      1864 - The First Murder Committed on a British Train [Broadside]. [Murder]. Muller, Franz [1840-1864]. Trial and Sentence of Franz Muller, For the Murder of Mr Briggs on the North London Railway. [London:, S.n., 1864?]. 19-3/4" x 14-1/2" broadside mounted on 22-1/2" x 15" thick-paper backing sheet. Text in four columns below headline and large woodcut trial scene, woodcuts of Muller and an unidentified man at foot of text. Moderate toning, a little heavier along outer margins, some wear and a few small chips to edges, negligible inkspotting in two places. * Franz Muller was a German tailor who was hanged for the murder of Thomas Briggs, the first killing to occur on a British train. The case caught the public's imagination due to increasing fears about the safety of rail travel and Scotland Yard's pursuit of Muller across the Atlantic Ocean to New York. The text concludes with six stanzas of verse. The final verse reads: "Thousands from every quarter, Did anxious flock to see, The author of this murder, The Railway tragedy, He now is at his trial, He who caused such grief and pain, The man who killed poor Thomas Briggs, All in a railway train."

      London Tinsley Brothers 1864 - First edition, very scarce. With the three very rare maps, which are seldom found in any copies. 8vo, publisher’s original maroon cloth gilt lettered and decorated in blind on the covers. iv, 195, 4 pp publisher’s catalogue. An especially pleasing, very handsome and bright copy indeed. Small restoration to the head of the spine measuring approximately 1/4" x 9/16", endpapers expertly renewed to match the original. VERY RARE FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL CLOTH WITH THE THREE ELUSIVE MAPS. Burton's contribution, in which he essentially carries out the debate with Speke that would have taken place had not the latter been killed in an hunting accident on the day scheduled for the meeting, occupies the first 65 pages. The remainder is M'Queen's scathing review of Speke's claims to the discovery of the source of the Nile. M'Queen's parting shot sums up the tenor of the whole review: "We truly lament the time that has been lost, and the money that has been spent, without any definite settlement of any material point, and with only the absurd result of finding the source of the great river Nile placed in a narrow ravine, where not a drop of water is to be found, except that which drops from the clouds during the periodical rains--nay, chiefly the fresh water which rushes into this ravine from the flooding of the lake to the northward, and which flood flows in an opposite direction to the current of the true Nile stream!" Penzer says this title is uncommon even in poor condition, and good copies are scarce. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
