[Civil War]
[Philadelphia: John Smith, 1865. Lithograph, 21 1/4 x 26 1/2 inches. Margins with surface rubbing and soiling. Four-inch closed tear in upper margin, descending into the image, two-and-one-half- inch closed tear in lower margin ascending into the image, no paper loss in either case. Backed by later paper, mending tears and a few small chips in edges of sheet. Very nice tone to the image. Good overall. Apparently a rare, unrecorded proof of this lithograph commemorating the meeting between Ulysses S. Grant and Robert E. Lee at Appomattox Courthouse on April 9, 1865, at which Lee surrendered the Army of Northern Virginia and the Civil War essentially came to an end. This print is not only important as a proof giving evidence of how the image was reworked for final publication, but also as part of a series of prints commemorating Lee's surrender that did so much to bolster the image of Grant as the "savior of the Union." "No single event of Ulysses S. Grant's life inspired more prints than the surrender he accepted at Appomattox..." - Neely & Holzer. The present image bears the title SURRENDER OF GEN. LEE, only, with no publication, copyright, or artist information. In the image Grant and Lee meet in the open air, before a large tree (not indoors as was actually the case). Grant, standing to the right, holds the surrender terms in his right hand, extended toward Lee. Lee, one gloved hand on his hip and the other on the hilt of his sword, stares steadily at Grant but makes no move toward the paper. Grant and Lee are each accompanied by a pair of aides, who gaze at each o … [Click Below for Full Description]

STANLEY, Edward.
A familiar history of birds.London, Longmans, Green and Co. (at the end: printed by Spottiswoode and Co.), 1865. 8vo. With engraved frontispiece, title-vignette, 2 engraved plates and 102 illustrations in the text.Contemporary gold-tooled calf, probably a school prize binding, with "King Edward's School Bruton" and its "Sealle of the Skolle of Brew" in a frame, the seal showing a Brewers tonne (Brew-ton), richly gold-tooled spine with a red morocco label, edges gilt over a fore-edge painting showing a falconry hunting scene. xiii, [1 blank], 446 pp. Fifth edition (1865) of a general account of bird life in its various aspects written by Edward Stanley (1779-1849), Bishop of Norwich, first published in 1835. The present copy, probably in a school prize binding, has a charming fore-edge painting of a scene showing a hunt with falcons. The edges have been gilded over the painting, so that the scene appears when the fore-edge is fanned. Stanley presents various facts and anecdotes about numerous species of birds and their instincts and habits. The preliminary advertisement notes that the book is intended for a class of readers who want to know more about birds, but to whom mere scientific details would be unacceptable. It contains 20 chapters. The first 5 describe the general classification, the external and internal structure of birds, their organs of sound, and their plumage, wings and flight. The last 15 describe different kinds of birds, including eagles, hawks, falcons, owls, birds of paradise, ostriches, water birds, toucans, ducks and penguins, but also the flamingo, alb … [Click Below for Full Description]

Dickens, Charles
London: Chapman and Hall, May 1864 - November 1865. First edition. Original 20 parts in 19, in first state blue wrappers; several parts either lacking ads or with variants from those called for in Hatton and Cleaver. Spines a bit soiled and edges occasionally chipped. Part 19-20 rebacked, but overall unrepaired and in nice condition, with some minor loss to paper at several spine ends and several joints starting but holding well. Faint pencil ownership signature to header of front wrappers on Parts 3-8 and 17. Light scattered foxing throughout. Part 1 largely uncut. Housed in a custom sheep and cloth slipcase and chemise. The author's final complete novel and his most complex, which in true Dickensian fashion blends biting social satire with a cast of characters who evoke sympathy and affection. A young heir conceals his identity in order to ascertain the quality of the other people with claims on his newfound wealth. Complete with the full cast of characters that makes Dickens' writing so rich, in which the author never loses his piercing insight into the human condition, while trying to call for the betterment of society. With intense focus on the working classes, the book, as character Bella Wilfer comments, is about "money, money, money, and what money can make of life." [Attributes: First Edition]

1865. [NAPOLEON III - SCIENTIFIC & LEARNING COMMISSION - MEXICO] Scientific Commission of Mexico The Scientific Commission of Mexico is a scientific agreement between French and Mexican researchers which took place from 1864 to 1867. Historical It is part of the''Mexico Expedition and was created by order of Napoleon III, in Paris by decree on February 27, 18641. Under the direction of Victor Duruy, decided by General Achille Bazaine in Mexico City in parallel with the creation of the Scientific, Artistic and Literary Commission, it appoints Colonel Doutrelaine to chair it. Regularly presented as a failure, it is still the center of debate in Mexico. Historians such as Ismael Ledesma Mateos, Magdalena Martínez Guzmán, Rosaura Ramírez Sevilla and Alberto Soberanis argue that it directly influenced the development of scientific disciplines in Mexico during and after military intervention.

DICKENS, Charles.
1865 19 lines on first side only of folded 8vo leaf; v. sl. dusted, & with faint pink lines of unknown origin not affecting text. Lightly folded for posting. Pilgrim Letters, vol. XI, p.7. An interesting letter to Holsworth, an employee in the offices of All the Year Round, that casts light on Dickens's creative processes, and shows the meticulous nature of his research. Dickens asks Mr. Holsworth, 'Will you get me Chambers's Book of Days', before further instructing him to 'go to Mr Edmonds at Willis's, and ask him if he has, or can at once get me, Merryweather's Lives of Misers'. He explains he has 'present and particular occasion to refer to that work, or any other, or others, containing accounts of Dancer, Elwes, and other misers well known.' Dickens was at this time engaged in writing the monthly instalments of Our Mutual Friend, and was clearly gathering material to help illustrate one of its main protagonists, Nicodemus Boffin, 'The Golden Dustman'. In the novel, Mr Boffin is the main benefactor of Harmon's will, but following his unexpected inheritance assumes the persona of an irrepressible miser, in part to demonstrate the dangers of limitless wealth to his daughter Bella. Dickens's need was evidently pressing, as he tells Holsworth, 'I shall be saved a great deal of time and delay, if I can get what I want, here, tomorrow (Thursday)'. Signed 'Faithfully Yours', with his usual flourish. Holsworth, it seems, was able to fulfil his commission, as Dickens later invoked some of the very names mentioned in this letter in the novel, in one of Boffin's justificatory tira … [Click Below for Full Description]

Phillips' December 1865 address, "The Eight Hour Movement," here transcribed by an unknown hand (not Wendell Phillips'), was delivered in Boston's progressive Tremont Temple Baptist Church. The address was part of an extended campaign of lectures that year to shorten the common laborer's workday to eight hours. Earlier that month, Phillips had spoken at the city's Faneuil Hall giving a general call to political action on the "Labor Question" and supporting legislative reform to shorten the workday to eight hours.¹ Here in his major address, "The Eight Hour Movement," Phillips speaks exclusively on the topics of labor (including the situations in Massachusetts and Great Britain), strikes, capital, worker productivity, etc. and the eight-hour workday: "I ask to introduce to its [the assembly's] acquaintance a new topic-that of the eight hour movement of the laboring men of this state....a question which grows from no uneasy ambition or restless caprice of a class or of individuals, but a question which is the natural outgrowth of the great elements which go to make up our civilisation. Every man acquainted with the history of this generation knows that just so fast as we have gotten rid of the old nobility of birth, the feudalism of blood, th … [Click Below for Full Description]

Bonneville, Benjamin. [Civil War
1865. Bonneville, Benjamin. [Civil War].[Printed Document Completed in Manuscript] Muster-Out Roll of Andersonville Prisoner Signed by Famed Officer and Explorer, Benjamin Bonneville while Stationed at the Benton Barracks in 1865.[St. Louis, MO]: 1865. 2 sheets, attached. 38 x 10 inches. Very good, few minor glue remnants along extension. Item #44103 Benjamin Louis Eulalie de Bonneville (1796-1878) signed this document just before his promotion to General. Immortalized in Washington Irving's 1837 work, "The Adventures of Captain Bonneville", Benjamin Bonneville began his military career at West Point in 1813, serving at a variety of posts until he requested a leave of absence to make a westward expedition in 1832. The journey which took him through the California Trail won him notoriety as an Oregon Trail-blazer, but cost him his military commission for a time. After his 1836 reinstatement, he served through the end of the Civil War, ultimately ranking as Brevet Brigadier General Bonneville. Christian Frank joined the 15th Missouri Infantry, Company F, on August 8, 1861, was captured at the Battle of Chickamauga, September 20, 1863, and had been imprisoned at Andersonville Prison in Georgia until his parole, February 26, 1865. He was officially discharged on June 12, 1865, the date of this document.

Swasey, John
Primarily Cincinnati, 1865. Very good.. Sixty-three items, approximately [80]pp. Mostly quarto sheets. Light wear and soiling, written in a neat and legible hand. A substantial archive of correspondence and other documents relating to the business dealings of John Swasey of Cincinnati and his business associate and friend Edward Kimball of Salem. John Swasey (1808-1888) was a noted merchant and ship builder who emigrated overland from Massachusetts to western Ohio in 1835. Settling in Cincinnati, Swasey invested in real estate and other businesses and accrued a substantial fortune. He was a founding member of the Cincinnati Chamber of Commerce and the Merchants Exchange. He lost much of his fortune in the Civil War. A native of Salem, he made annual trips back to his ancestral home with his wife and children, and it seems likely this is how the two men came to do business together. Edward D. Kimball (1811-1867) was a noted Salem maritime merchant and ship owner with a worldwide business trading network, including trade to Africa and the East Indies. His early career included New England coastal trading in produce and lumber; in the early 1840s he expanded into the Ohio river trade, documented herein. In 1851 he served as mayor of Salem. The first letters present here deal with shipments of lard and pork made from Cincinnati to Salem. Writing in December 1841, Swasey writes, "Please find invoice for lard & pork both extra articles. The pork is all corn fed and some equal to clear. There was no clear pork made out of this lot so it will run better than mess. Th … [Click Below for Full Description]

Photography]
1865. An extraordinary and important collection of approximately 800 period albumen portrait photographs, composed of the bulk of Volumes 1-3 of the Frederick H. Meserve photography collection and including portraits of artists, writers, scientists, educators, musicians and others, among which are included rare photographs of Brahms, Dickens, Dumas, Darwin, Barton, Nightingale, Whitman, Poe, Sand, Hugo, Daguerre, Tchaikovsky and many, many more. A complete listing of included figures, organized by profession, is included below. Born in 1865, Frederick H. Meserve was the son of William Neal Meserve, a Civil War veteran, and began collecting Civil War era photographs in the 1890s to illustrate his father's war diary.  He became a prominent collector and historian of photographs from the era, especially photographs of Abraham Lincoln, and he later worked alongside historian Carl Sandburg to publish "The Photographs of Abraham Lincoln" in 1944. But he was a collector not just of Civil War photographs and indeed bought entire contents of photography studios including those of Matthew Brady, Sarony, Nadar, etc. In 1913 he made four sets of his photographs (at a cost of $413 - equivalent to approx. $9500 in today's dollars), mostly printed from the original negatives, including one each for The Morgan Library, The New York Historical Society and eventually, for Harvard.  Various smaller groups of images were issued over time, but there are only these four large sets of his photographs in existence, all of which are mounted and described in Meserve's hand on folio pages, as here.

M'Laughlin Brothers Printers, Philadelphia, 1865. Large broadsheet printed both sides. Measuring 22" x 28". Old folds, now flattened, with tiny bits of loss at a couple of folds, else near fine. Each side with a woodcut eagle with a shield and banner device. A broadside issued early in 1865: referencing Lincoln's re-election in November of the previous year (1864) but obviously while the War was still being waged (i.e. previous to May 1865). One side features eight columns with 28 patriotic songs including most of the standards: *[Battle] Hymn of the Republic, When Johnny Comes Marching Home, John Brown's Body, The Star-Spangled Banner, Yankee Doodle, America, Johnny is Gone for a Soldier*, as well as *The Black Brigade, The Yankee Girls, It is Great for Our Country to Die*, and others. The songs are flanked on each side with anecdotes and advice on buying 7-30 Notes or Bonds rather than gold in order to support the war effort. The other side of the sheet is devoted to "Facts and Figures" about the Notes. The text is by Samuel Wilkeson. This broadside was issued by Jay Cooke, as general subscription agent of the government loans. *OCLC* locates a single copy (The Library Company).

KERR, Jas. H., Executor and M.P. Tunis, Executrix
National Unionist Print, Williamstown, Ky, 1865. Broadside. Measuring 12" x 17.5". Old folds, tiny tears and nicks, light foxing, sound and very good. Estate of Tunis offered for sale in the waning days of the Civil War. Nehemiah Camp Tunis was a New Jersey-born retailer of liquor living in Williamstown, Kentucky, near the northern border of the state. He registered for the Federal military draft in 1863 at the age of 41, and died on January 24, 1865, two weeks before this broadside was published. His wife, Mary Patience Kerr Tunis, a dozen years younger than her husband, served as executrix of what was his substantial estate. Her co-executor was likely her father or brother. A more than usually interesting estate broadside, advertising a prodigious amount of Kentucky whiskey. We could locate no other copies of this broadside.

(WARREN HARDING)
WARREN G. HARDING (1865-1923). Harding was the Twenty-Ninth President. Proof copies. 1968. No place. The proof copies of Francis Russell's 1968 biography The Shadow Of Blooming Grove. The controversial biography is best-remembered for a lawsuit brought by the Harding family against Russell. He discovered letters between Harding and his mistress, Carrie Phillips, and Russell intended to publish excerpts of the correspondence. The Harding family successfully sued to block their disclosure, and it boosted the pre-publication publicity for the tome. The proofs are in two bound booklets and housed in a custom-made green box. There is at least one handwritten correction and the pages have the usual wear to the edges. Perfect for the Warren Harding completist!

HAMEL, Joseph Christian
Sanktpeterburg, 1865. Uncommon first edition, posthumously published as a supplement to the transactions of the Imperial Academy of Sciences. Joseph Christian Hamel (Iosif Gamel’ in Russian; 1788–1862) came from the Volga German community of Sarepta. A doctor by training, he soon went into government service, and by 1829 had joined the Imperial Academy of Sciences, on behalf of whom he travelled extensively to both Britain and America. It was on one just such visit, to the Great Exhibition in London, that he died, and is buried in West Norwood cemetery. Hamel published a number of works of Anglo-Russian interest. The present account appears his most extensive and charts the early history of the two countries’ connections. Description: Two volumes large 8vo (24.4 × 16 cm). pp. [2], 179, [1]; [2], [181]–308, 15, [1], 8 (catalogue of books published by the Imperial Academy of Sciences); light waterstain in the gutter of the first two leaves in vol.

Per capirne la rarità ricordiamo che lo storico biliotecario parigino LEON DOREZ (1864 - 1922), autore di 'Nouvelle recherches sur Michelange et son entourage' (1918), si lamentò che durante le sue ricerche di quest'opera di Daelli non riuscisse a trovarne nemmeno una copia ne' a Parigi, ne' a Firenze e neppure a Milano perchè era diventata già allora introvabile.

Swasey, John
Primarily Cincinnati, 1865. Very good.. Sixty-three items, approximately [80]pp. Mostly quarto sheets. Light wear and soiling, written in a neat and legible hand. A substantial archive of correspondence and other documents relating to the business dealings of John Swasey of Cincinnati and his business associate and friend Edward Kimball of Salem. John Swasey (1808-1888) was a noted merchant and ship builder who emigrated overland from Massachusetts to western Ohio in 1835. Settling in Cincinnati, Swasey invested in real estate and other businesses and accrued a substantial fortune. He was a founding member of the Cincinnati Chamber of Commerce and the Merchants Exchange. He lost much of his fortune in the Civil War. A native of Salem, he made annual trips back to his ancestral home with his wife and children, and it seems likely this is how the two men came to do business together. Edward D. Kimball (1811-1867) was a noted Salem maritime merchant and ship owner with a worldwide business trading network, including trade to Africa and the East Indies. His early career included New England coastal trading in produce and lumber; in the early 1840s he expanded into the Ohio river trade, documented herein. In 1851 he served as mayor of Salem. The first letters present here deal with shipments of lard and pork made from Cincinnati to Salem. Writing in December 1841, Swasey writes, "Please find invoice for lard & pork both extra articles. The pork is all corn fed and some equal to clear. There was no clear pork made out of this lot so it will run better than mess. Th … [Click Below for Full Description]
