        Hingham, Massachusetts Raises Troops Under Lincoln’s Draft Call

      Hingham, MA 1864 - Broadside. "War Meeting! An Adjourned Meeting of Citizens liable to be Drafted into the Military Service of the United States." Hingham, Mass., February 13, 1864. 1 p., approximately 11 1/4 x 16 3/4 in., matted and framed to 18 3/4 x 24 1/4 in. On February 1, 1864, Lincoln called for an additional 200,000 men to fill Union ranks. The town of Hingham needed 34 men to meet their quota, and used this broadside to advertise the muster. Israel Whitcomb was secretary of the Hingham rallying committee, organized to recruit soldiers and solicit donations to meet the town's quota of troops. The Hingham committee had assembled (and voted itself out of existence) for Lincoln's earlier draft calls.

        Mailing Envelope Incorporating "Genl Custer"

      Washington DC 1864 - Firmly addressed, personal communication from Gen. Custer to his wife Elizabeth. 3.5" x 8" envelope still sealed, slit at both ends, tear at bottom left, 1/2" stain at bottom, expert archival reinforced to tear on verso. Custer's own hand includes; "Mrs. General Custer / 339 Penn Avenue / Washington D. C." and "Printed Matter" at top left. Includes 3-cent George Washington Stamp canceled by a D.C. postmark dated May 6. While the year is not visible in the post-mark as they were married in February '64 and the War was over and they were living together again in the Spring of '65. As told in her book, "The Boy General". Elizabeth "Libbie" Bacon and George Custer were married on February 9, 1864. Custer's leave of absence was cut short by urgent recalls from the Army of the Potomac. Libbie begged hard not to be left behind and initially took up residence at the extreme flank of the Army in a Virginia farmhouse, finishing up her honeymoon alone. As U.S. Grant took command of the Army of the Potomac and prepared for the Overland campaign, Custer's 5th Michigan Cavalry was assigned under General Philip Sheridan.According to the book, "The Custer Story; The Life and Intimate Letters of General George A. Custer and His Wife Elizabeth" edited by Marguerite Merinton, Custer wrote to Elizabeth on May 4th, 1864 from Camp Libbie, Virginia; "This is probably the last letter you will get before the coming fight. The entire army moves to-night, and begins crossing the Rapidan at Germania and lower fords. Communication with Washington will probably be abandoned for several days, but do not borrow trouble. No, dearest girl, of course I am not ashamed of you.How could I be? for having declined to ride my horse? Before I received your letter I was chiding myself.but "She" knows be too well to think me careless for her safety." (p. 95) This is likely Custer's addressed envelope from that correspondence. He wrote it on the 4th, it went to Washington via courier on the 5th and was post marked on the 6th.

      Taylor and Francis, London - FIRST EDITION, FULL VOLUME 154 OF THE PHILOSOPHICAL TRANSACTIONS, INCLUSIVE OF SIX IMPORTANT PAPERS, HERSCHEL'S EXTRAORDINARY CATALOG OF NEBULÆ & STARS; THREE ASTRONOMY PAPERS BY WILLIAM HUGGINS, TYNDALL'S FOURTH PAPER ON GLOBAL WARMING & GEORGE BOOLE'S FINAL PAPER. First edition of SIR JOHN HERSCHEL'S enormous catalog, a complete and descriptive compilation of the 5,079 nebulæ and clusters known to date, the majority of which had been discovered by either his father, Sir William Herschel, or himself. An extraordinary achievement, it remains celebrated to this day. First edition of three important papers in the history of astronomy, all by WILLIAM HUGGINS, the founder of stellar astrophysics. Employing only items he had set up in his own observatory -- chemicals and batteries and cameras -- Huggins, first visually and then photographically, explored the spectra of stars, nebulae, and comets. In the first paper here, "On the Spectra of some of the Chemical Elements", Huggins proved stars to be composed of known elements occurring on the Earth and Sun - something we no take as a given. In the second and third papers present in this volume, Huggins was the first to show that some nebulae, including the great nebula in Orion, have pure emission spectra and thus must be truly gaseous, while others, such as that in Andromeda, yield spectra characteristic of stars - a groundbreaking discovery the Dictionary of Scientific Biography deemed "sensational" (DSB, 541). First edition of a paper by JOHN TYNDALL, his fourth in a series of papers (or 'memoirs') written as he investigated the absorption of radiant energy by gases and, by the way, proved that global warming exists. In these papers he demonstrates the first quantification and demonstration that atmospheric gases are infrared emitters, in other words, that they emit heat. The 'memoir' offered here, "On the Absorption and Radiation of Heat by Gaseous and Liquid Matter," proves "that gaseous films not more than one hundredth part of an inch in thickness exhibited a measureable absorption, examing the sifting powers of gases and radiant heat, and extending his researches on dynamic radiation" (Vincent, The Year-book of Facts in Science and Art, 5). Tyndall received the 1869 Rumford metal in recognition of the importance of his work on radiant heat (Milestones in Science 191). What he discovered is considered "the first accurate account of how the atmosphere functions" (Kolbert, Field Notes from a Catastrophe: Man, Nature, and Climate Change, 35). Prior to Tyndall, many believed that something like what we now call the Greenhouse Effect existed, but in this paper Tyndall was the first to demonstrate, quantify, and thus prove it. First edition of GEORGE BOOLE'S final paper, this on differential equations and employing Cayley's method with the equation solved by a definite integral. Boole died later in 1864. CONDITION & DETAILS: In: Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London. For the Year MDCCCLXIV [1864], London: Printed by Taylor and Francis, Volume 154, 1865.

B. erkrankte jedoch nahe Stanley Falls, und wurde in einem Lager zurückgelassen, wo er während seines Aufenthaltes die Swahili-Sprache erlernte. Seine Rekonvaleszenz verbrachte er auf der Insel Fernando Póo, von deren Hauptstadt aus er eine zweimonatige Rundreise antrat und mit seinen Beobachtungen wertvolle Beiträge zur Kenntnis der Insel und ihrer Bewohner, der Bube, von deren Sprache er zwei Vokabularien zusammenstellte, lieferte. - 1887 promovierte B. in Leipzig mit dem Versuch einer Monographie von Fernando Póo, einer Vorarbeit zu vorliegendem Werk. In dem angebundenen Werk beschreibt B. eine Reise, die ihn als Begleiter des deutschen Forschungsreisenden Hans Meyer 1888 nach Ostafrika führte, um den Kilimandscharo zu bezwingen. Die Expedition durchquerte - von der Ostküste ausgehend - die damals noch völlig unbekannte Gebirgslandschaft zwischen den Flüssen Pangani und Umba. Wegen an der Küste ausgebrochener Araber-Unruhen sahen sie sich am südlichen Pare-Gebirge zur Umkehr gezwungen. Das Ergebnis dieser Expedition war die erste topographische Aufnahme von Usambra. Seine kartografischen und ethnologischen Aufzeichnungen waren für die schnell folgende wirtschaftliche Erschließung des Landes von unschätzbarem Wert. (vgl. dazu: Ausstellungskat. ?Abenteuer Ostafrika?. S.147).

        1864. Almanach de La Pologne contenant L’Histoire de la Pologne suivie du Polonais apprise n dis minutes pa un Polonais.

      Paris; F Cournol, Libraire, 20, Rue de Seine. 1864 - First edition. 16mo. Pp 124, including six double-page woodcuts to text. Contemporary full morocco, with gilt boards and spine, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers. An extremely interesting and rare item, deriving from the Polish national liberation struggle in the middle of the nineteenth century led from Paris by Jean CZYNSKI, a Jewish writer exiled by the Russians. The first six pages consist of a calendar and dates but then this gives way to a preface appealing to the French, and to all Polish people, for their support, ‘La France seule compta quelques-uns de ses fils parmi les defenseurs malheureux de l’independence polonaise .Patrie et Liberte!’. The preface is followed by a history of Poland, a list of useful vocabulary, then the printing of the statutes of the Alliance Polonaise de Toutes les Croyances Religieuses (117-120), and Appel aux Polonais de toutes les Croyances religieuses (123-124) by Jean CZYNSKI, President, and Joseph WIEN, (Secretaire). There is no author to the text, but the British Library catalogue suggests that it is by Gustave Marx writing under a pseudonom. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

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.

        Chinese Railway Worker. THREE STEREOVIEWS OF CONSTRUCTION WORK DURING THE BUILDING OF THE CENTRAL PACIFIC RAIL ROAD, INCLUDING A VERY RARE PHOTOGRAPH OF A CHINESE LABORER.

      Alfred A. Hart, Sacramento: 1864 - Chinese Railway Worker. THREE STEREOVIEWS OF CONSTRUCTION WORK DURING THE BUILDING OF THE CENTRAL PACIFIC RAIL ROAD, INCLUDING A VERY RARE PHOTOGRAPH OF A CHINESE LABORER. Sacramento: Alfred A. Hart, 1864-1869. Each image titled with printed paper labels on bottom of mount. Condition: very light wear to corners Excellent chocolate tones. RARE. No. 89 - Grizzly Hill Tunnel from the North, 500 feet long; No. 116 - Camp near Summit Tunnel, Mount King in the distance; No. 204 - Heading of East Portal, Tunnel No. 8, from Donner Lake Railroad, Western Summit, featuring a Chinese laborer posing for the camera while wearing a typical Chinese shirt and Chinese straw hat while balancing on his shoulder a pole holding two buckets for rocks. He is wearing high leather boots. Despite accounting for up to 80% of the labor force that built the Central Pacific Railroad, Chinese immigrant laborers were rarely photographed. The other two images depict a tunnel recently carved out of a mountain near the notoriously difficult Summit Tunnel, and the other of a shanty building camp. (White laborers shunned the difficulty of the terrain, the blistering sun, and back breaking labor). "Without the efforts of the Chinese workers in the building of America's railroads, our development and progress as a nation would have been delayed by years. Their toil in severe weather, cruel working conditions and for meager wages cannot be under appreciated." Quoted from: CENTRAL PACIFIC RAILROAD Photographic History Museum website: "In fall 1865 Chinese workers began building 15 tunnels, most of them at high elevations through the Sierra Nevada for a total of 6,213 feet. Historians agree that the most difficult tunnel was No. 6, the Summit Tunnel, cut through solid granite, 1,695 feet long and 124 feet below the surface. Progress was very slow, with many kegs of black powder used each day, but to little effect in the hard rock. Nitroglycerine was mixed on site by a chemist, but it was too unstable, causing many accidental explosions, and its use was abandoned. Workers built a vertical shaft halfway between the two tunnel openings, and in shifts around the clock they dug four faces simultaneously, from both exterior sides and from inside out. Work continued through two of the worst winters on record. Snow from fierce blizzards often blocked tunnel entrances, and avalanches would sweep away camps of Chinese workers, carrying many to their death. The Summit Tunnel was completed, graded and track laid on November 30, 1867." n the United States, between 50 to 150 Chinese were killed as a result of snow slides, landslides, explosions, falls and other accidents. Chinese practice was to bury the deceased temporarily and at a later date collect the remains in a box in a ritual fashion. The bones would then be shipped back to China to be reburied in the worker's home village. These three stereoviews come from the series SCENES IN THE SIERRA NEVADA MOUNTAINS. A.A. Hart's photographs document the construction of the western half of first transcontinental railroad by the Central Pacific Railroad between 1864 and 1869. Hart served as the Central Pacific's first official photographer, and his images chronicle the advancement of the railroad over 742 miles from Newcastle, California, through the Sierra Nevada Mountains and into Nevada and Utah. The lot of three: $1,800 U.S.

It would, of course, have been far more congenial to my feelings to have met Captain Speke upon the platform, and to have argued out the affair before the scientific body then assembled. I went down fairly to seek this contest on September 13th. The day for the discussion was appointed for September 16th. Some hundreds of persons were assembled in the rooms of Section E, and when I appeared there it was only to hear that my quondam friend and Nile rival had on the previous afternoon lost his life by the merest accident. I had seen him at 13.0 P.M. ; at 4 P.M. he was a corpse."

      1864. Activities in New York City's 22nd Precinct, Located in Hell's Kitchen, in 1864 [Manuscript]. [New York City]. Metropolitan Police Blotter 27, Twenty-Second Precinct, Johannes C. Stott, Captain. [New York, July 29, 1864-October 8, 1864]. [ii], 260, [2] pp. Folio (15" x 9 1/2"). Three-quarter calf over marbled boards, rebacked in period style. Considerable rubbing to boards with loss to marbled paper, corners worn. Light toning, content in neat hand to rectos and versos of all leaves, additional notes to endleaves, negligible dampstaining in a few places, some edgewear to preliminaries and final leaves, pencil drawing of a ship on recto of front free endpaper. An interesting piece of New York City history. * The activity blotter of the 22nd Precinct of the Metropolitan Police under Captain Johannes C. Stott. Located in a rough neighborhood that would later be part of the district known as Hell's Kitchen, the precinct covered the west side of Manhattan between about 42nd and 52nd Streets, with headquarters on 47th Street between 8th and 9th Avenues. Its population was comprised mostly of Irish and German immigrants and was notorious for its street gangs, such as the Gophers. Stott commanded 4 sergeants, patrolmen and 2 doormen. The log includes many daily entries, often more than hourly, and includes details on specific crimes. Here are a few examples: On July 29, at 10:15 p.m., they brought in John Rice, aged 17, native of Germany, for felonious assault, "striking the comp't in the head with a stone." The next night at 12:30 came Gottlieb Roaling for "having cut one Christian Emtling in the throat with a lager beer glass." On 16 August, "a boy named Washington Favor employed in Higgins Carpet Factory fell through the hatch from the third floor and...is not expected to recover. The boy is about 11 years old." (You may be glad to know that the boy survived and was working as a theater manager according to the 1880 census). There are many cases involving lost boys and unidentified corpses. In all, this ledger provides a vivid document of daily life in a tough New York City neighborhood at the end of the Civil War era.
