        [THREE SEPARATE WORKS CONTAINING GENERAL ORDERS AND A CIRCULAR FROM THE UNION ARMY'S DEPARTMENT OF THE SOUTH, PRINTED JUST AFTER THE END OF THE CIVIL WAR, REGARDING ISSUES RELEVANT TO THE END OF AN ARMED CONFLICT, INCLUDING ONE THREATENING PUNISHMENT OF SOUTHERNERS FOR CONTINUED RESISTANCE]

      Hilton Head, S.C., 1865. [1],[1],[3]pp. Each disbound from a larger volume, with two stabholes along the left margin. Overall, very good. A fascinating trio of printed general orders and circulars issued from Hilton Head by the Union Army's Department of the South in the two months after Lee's surrender. The three publications include a total of six general orders and a circular. Each touches upon a subject related to the end of war, and the various issues that must be dealt with to ensure peace and settle military enrollment and business matters. The three important works here include: 1) "Headquarters Department of the South, Hilton Head, S. C., May 31, 1865." General Orders No. 80, May 11, 1865, and General Orders No. 90, May 11, 1865. The latter reads, in part: "Punishment of Guerrillas. All the forces of the enemy, east of the Mississippi river, having been duly surrendered...under agreements of parole and disbandment...it is Ordered that from and after the first day of June, 1865, any and all persons found in arms against the United States, or who may commit acts of hostility against it...will be regarded as guerrillas and punished with death...." 2) "Headquarters Department of the South, Hilton Head, S. C., June 6, 1865." General Orders No. 83, signed in type by Secretary of State William H. Seward, May 29, 1865. Also signed in ink by acting Assistant Adjutant General T.D. Hodges. The order reads, in part: "A copy of the President's Amnesty Proclamation...is herewith appended...so as to insure its benefits to the people and guard the Government against fraud.... [T]he oath prescribed in the proclamation may be taken and subscribed before any commissioned officer, civil, military or naval, in the service of the United States... All who receive such oaths are hereby authorized to give certified copies...to this department, where they will be deposited and remain in the archives of the Government...." 3) "Headquarters Department of the South, Hilton Head, S. C., June 16, 1865." General Orders No. 94, May 29, 1865; Circular No. 23, June 5, 1865; General Orders No. 100, May 28, 1865; General Orders No. 101, May 30, 1865 and June 10, 1865. General Orders No. 94 includes a telegram concerning returned P.O.W.s. It reads, in part: "The Secretary of War directs that returned Prisoners of War (enlisted men) who have endured the hardships of Andersonville, Florence, Salisbury, and other rebel prisons, be mustered out as soon as possible, and allowed three months extra pay...." General Orders No. 100 reads, in part: "Commanding officers of regiments will, at once, muster for commutation of rations all men of their respective commands who have been prisoners of war, and have not been mustered for or paid commutation of rations for the time they were in the rebel hands." The final order allows for soldiers to buy their "arms and accoutrements" from the Ordnance Department. An interesting assortment of documents dealing with immediate-post- Civil-War issues.

        TRIAL OF JOHN Y. BEALL, AS A SPY AND GUERRILLERO, BY MILITARY COMMISSION

The official military account of the trial of John Yates Beall. Beall, whom Nevins calls "an erratic Confederate irregular," joined the Confederate navy early in the war.

Beall and his men had hoped to free Confederate prisoners held by the Union at Johnson's Island off the coast of Ohio, but succeeded only in sinking several nearby boats. He was tried for sabotage in January 1865, sentenced to hang, and executed after President Lincoln refused to commute his death sentence. HOWES B276.

        AN EXAMINATION OF SIR WILLIAM HAMILTON'S PHILOSOPHY AND OF THE PRINCIPLE PHILOSOPHICAL QUESTIONS DISCUSSED IN HIS WRITINGS.

      London: Longman, Green, Longman, Roberts & Green, 1865. First Edition. 8vo, in the publisher's original oxblood-brown cloth paneled on the boards in blind and gilt lettered on the spine. Neat private name on half-title, and minor sunning to the spine, otherwise about a fine copy. FIRST EDITION OF MILL'S ATTACK ON SIR WILLIAM HAMILTON METAPHYSICAL PHILOSOPHY. To the destruction of Hamilton's philosophical reputation, Mill's Examination contributed a great deal. Mark Pattison, reviewing the Examination in The Reader, exclaimed: "The effect of Mr Mill's review is the absolute annihilation of all Sir W. Hamilton's doctrines, opinions, of all he has written or taught. Nor of himself only, but all his followers, pupils, copyists, are involved in the common ruin. The whole fabric of the Hamiltonian philosophy is not only demolished, but its very stones are ground to powder. Where once stood Sebastopol bidding proud defiance to rival systems is now a coast barren and blue, sandheaps behind and sandhills before." Within this text Mill also expounds his most important ideas on religion. "The Book focused the whole controversial energy of the period belonging to the two opposed schools, the intuitional and the empirical... it became the leading text-book of that psychological philosophy which had been adumbrated by Hume. It is a work that shows Mill's powers at their most mature state".

        Conchologia Iconica. Monographs of the genus Cerithidea, Cerithium, Lampania, Potamides, Pyrazus, Telescopium, Tympanotonos, and Vertagus.

      - London, Lovell A. Reeve, 1865-1866. Folio (25.9 x 20.3 cm). Titles and indices to all parts, and 36 beautifully hand-coloured plates [Cerithidea (1866) 4; Cerithium (1865) 20; Lampania 1866) 2; Potamides (1866) 1; Pyrazus (1865) 1; Telescopium (1865) 1; Tympanotonos (1866) 2; Vertagus (1865-1866) 5]; all with explanatory text leaves. Contemporary half calf over marbled boards. Spine with gilt lines and title. Marbled endpapers. = Very rare copy of the combined Cerithoidea in "Conchologia Iconica", started by Lovell Reeve in 1843 and finished (rather than completed) long after Reeve's death in 1865 by G. B. Sowerby, comprising 20 volumes in all. Cerithioidea was not yet recognized in Reeve's days as a superfamily, but the gross similarity of the genera involved made this "natural" grouping evident and the short time span between the parts published suggests that they were studied by the author(s) simultaneously. These monographs, perhaps the first done by Sowerby alone, include the description of several hundred species including many that were poorly known or new. Most of the descriptions are based on material collected by the most famous shell collector of the 19th century, Hugh Cuming (1791-1865). ".Reeve had become acquainted with Cuming, and Reeve’s life was changed forever. . Their association was such as to encourage Reeve to begin the Conchologia Iconica in 1843 primarily for description of Cuming material. Many of the Part covers for the Iconica carry the wording "Illustrated chiefly from the Cumingian Collection" (Petit). Small paper repair to one text leaf margin, a few tiny pencil annotations, otherwise very good with all the plates clean and finely, accurately hand-coloured. Caprotti, p. 213; Nissen ZBI, 3331. Petit (Zootaxa 1648), p. 30. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        THE FIRST OF MAY 1865 OR GENL MOVING DAY IN RICHMOND VA

      New York: Published by H. & W. Voight. Lith. by Kimmel & Forster, 254 & 256 Canal St., 1865. Broadside illustration, 9" x 10-3/8". Toning to print. Brightly colored, mildly toned. Small spot at top blank margin. Upper margin of blank verso shows remnants from former taping. Lower blank forecorner chipped. Very Good. "From building inscribed, 'To let Apply Lincoln & Co.', Southerners, at whom Negro thumbs his nose, are moving 'C.S.A. Treasury,' etc." [Weitenkampf]. Anticipating the end of the Civil War in Richmond, the cartoon depicts Robert E. Lee collecting swords for placement in a cart drawn by two skeletal dogs, Treasury Secretary Trenholm hauling away worthless Confederate bonds, and a "Sheriff Sale" sign on the building. Bystanders look on. A dog urinates on a box entitled "C.S.A. Treasury. Waster Paper." Despite the title's date, the cartoon was probably issued before May 1, that date being the artist's prediction of the time of the Confederacy's collapse. The reference to Lincoln & Co. suggests the President was still alive. Weitenkampf 148 [recording a 1905 reproduction only]. Not in Reilly. OCLC 191119865 [3- AAS, Clements, U VA] as of September 2017. Also located at the Library of Congress, Boston Public Library, Lincoln Financial Foundation Collection.

He was a national hero to his contemporaries and time has confirmed his reputation as one of the greatest, if not the greatest, of the eminent Victorians, both in his achievement and in his influence." This is the scarce account of Livingstone's second expedition. "Other explorers we have had whose fame rose as high, but it lasted only for a few years. The influences of Dr. Livingstone's life-work, on the other hand, are so far- reaching that his fame is above the passing feelings of the time.

        Lettre autographe signée adressée à sa mère : «Me voici en mesure d'accomplir tous mes plans»

      1865 - - [Bruxelles] Vendredi 12 mai 1865, 13,2x20,8cm, 1 page sur un feuillet remplié. - Lettre autographe signée de Charles Baudelaire, rédigée à l'encre, adressée à sa mère. Quelques soulignements, biffures et corrections de l'auteur. Cette lettre a été publiée pour la première fois dans Charles Baudelaire, Dernières Lettres inédites à sa mère en 1926. Ancienne collection Armand Godoy n°197. Précieuse lettre de l'époque bruxelloise, exil volontaire du poète à la fin de sa vie. « Il est douteux que j'habite quelque part à Paris. Je crois que j'habiterai surtout une voiture dans laquelle je ferai, si je peux, toutes mes courses en un ou deux jours. ». Angoissé par Paris - cité des vices et des créanciers - il appréhende cette brève visite. L'exil bruxellois est en effet synonyme d'échec pour le poète qui ne cesse, depuis son arrivée en Belgique, de repousser son retour en France. Pourtant, impatient de quitter le plat pays qu'il exècre, il raille ses autochtones : « On est lent ici ». Le poète, comme jadis l'élève de dix-sept ans qui affirmait à sa mère qu'il allait se ressaisir, promet « Me voici en mesure d'accomplir tous mes plans. Je ne sais comment t'exprimer ma reconnaissance ; et je crois que la meilleure manière sera d'exécuter mes promesses. » Littéralement obsédé par cette mère sacrée « qui hante [son] cœur et [son] esprit », le « fils reconnaissant » s'estime incapable d'atteindre sa destinée poétique sans une attention maternelle exclusive. [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] Letter autograph signed by Charles Baudelaire, written in ink, addressed to his mother. Some highlights, redactions and corrections of the author.

        [Collection of printed music sheets with early American Lithography.]

      Terre Haute, Indiana.: Flourishing 1865-1880; music sheets from 1848-1871., 1865. Folio. 4 CHROMOLITHOGRAPHIC PLATES & 5 LITHOGRAPHS. Annie was the wife of Samuel Milton Call (1847-1924), and later Reverend Henry Clay Sprinkle (1868-1955). Bound volume containing 28 music scores for piano. Illustrated title-pages done with ornamentation or printed in lithography (9), of which 4 are color. Volume is worn. Good. Unique collection of 28 American music scores for piano, dating from 1848-71, including specimens printed in New York, Boston, Chicago, Cincinnati, St. Louis, Milwaukee, Cleveland, Nashville and Louisville. This group features nine lithographs by such firms as Ehrgott. Forbriger & Co., Lithographers, Cincinnati [4]; Ehrgott & Krebs, Lithographers ; Color lithography by Sarony & Co., New York; Lithographed title by E.H. Pigott, Forbriger & Co., Cincinnati. This collection was bound together for Annie Van Eaton, whose name is featured on the cover. Her music teacher, Lorenz Kussner, of Terre Haute, Indiana, clearly had experience with the pieces selected. PROVENANCE: [Lorenz Kussner], Pianos & Music, Terre Haute, Indiana. Kussner was a dealer in musical merchandise, born in Hasse-Darmstadt, Germany in 1836. In 1852 he immigrated to the Unites States, settling in New York briefly before relocating to Cincinnati. While in Dayton, Ohio, he apprenticed to a piano manufacturer. After four years he moved again to Crawfordsville, Indiana and the Greencastle, IN, teaching music. In 1864 he arrived in Terre Haute and opened his retail music store. After a year the building burned down. In August 1857 he married Emilie Weinhardt, also a native of Germany. They had a daughter, Amalia, who became a well-known miniaturist artist. See: Hiram Williams Beckwith, History of Vigo and Parke Counties, Together with Historic Notes on the Wabash Valley . . . Chicago, (1880), pp. 298-9. It seems likely that Lorenz Kussner either taught Annie or employed her while at Terre Haute. Inventory available on request.

        Keeping score at the 1865 Tufts University baseball game between the sophomore and freshman classes, as recorded in an autograph scorecard, an inning-by-inning columnar account, set up similar to the scorecards in use today, showing the results of each at bat and with end-of- the-game summaries, including "flies caught," "flies missed," and "left on bases"

      (Medford, MA) 1865 - Broadsheet manuscript, 8 3/4 x 7 5/8 inches, the sophomore class performance on recto, freshman on verso. The sophomore class won the game, umpired by E.A. Perry, 33-30, coming from behind with seven runs in the bottom of the ninth; with all the scoring, there were no home runs. Field positions are noted for each player. "The first official baseball game at Tufts College was played on September 5, 1863, when a team of sophomores defeated the freshman team, 9-6 . it was not until 1863 that a game was recorded as official. That year, a group of freshmen challenged the sophomore class to a game, and the next year, an official baseball program was organized. In 1864, two teams appeared on the Tufts campus, the All Nine and the Balliu Club . in 1868, the Tufts College All Nine began competing informally against other local schools. The next year, Tufts recorded its first recognized intercollegiate game against Brown University" (online "Concise Encyclopedia of Tufts History"). A few cracks at folds, lower half of verso browned; still a good example of an early manuscript scorecard for an American college baseball game. (#8480).

        Tahrir Qawa'id al-Risala al-Shamsiyya.

      1865 - 220 pp., Arabic Text neatly hand written, 18 lines to the page, tables, some headings written in red, a couple of pages have light damp stains, very good copy, contemporary full stamped calf, inscribed 30 March, 1865. Najam al-Din al-Qazwini al-Khatibi (d.1276) was an Islamic philosopher and logician. His most important work is this work on logic. It was commonly used as the first major text on logic in madrasas, until the twentieth century and is "perhaps the most studied logical textbook of all time". Al-Katibi’s logic was largely inspired by the formal Avicennian system of temporal modal logic, but is more elaborate and departs from it in several ways. While Avicenna considered ten modalities and examined six of them, al-Katibi considered many more modalized propositions and examined thirteen which he believed were "customary to investigate".

        Original photograph of Florence "Flo" Maude Terry

      London: Kentish Town, Caversham Rd., July 17, 1865, 1865. AN UNRECORDED PHOTOGRAPH BY DODGSON. Original photograph trimmed to an oval measuring 10 x 7.5 cm, mounted to a piece of card stock, verso of card stock with a contemporary inscription which reads "Flossey Terry July 1865.", housed in a contemporary victorian black wooden frame, image slightly faded but still sharp. According to the catalogue raisonne of Dodgson's photographs by Edward Wakeling there are 2 similar images of Florence numbered 1351 and 1353. This image seams clearly to be the missing image #1352. This visit is well documented by Dodgson. His diary entry reads "At Terrys, took Flo as 'Cinderella," and one or two others..."

        Conchologia Iconica. Monographs of the genus Cerithidea, Cerithium, Lampania, Potamides, Pyrazus, Telescopium, Tympanotonos, and Vertagus.

      London, Lovell A. Reeve, 1865-1866. Folio (25.9 x 20.3 cm). Titles and indices to all parts, and 36 beautifully hand-coloured plates [Cerithidea (1866) 4; Cerithium (1865) 20; Lampania 1866) 2; Potamides (1866) 1; Pyrazus (1865) 1; Telescopium (1865) 1; Tympanotonos (1866) 2; Vertagus (1865-1866) 5]; all with explanatory text leaves. Contemporary half calf over marbled boards. Spine with gilt lines and title. Marbled endpapers.= Very rare copy of the combined Cerithoidea in "Conchologia Iconica", started by Lovell Reeve in 1843 and finished (rather than completed) long after Reeve's death in 1865 by G. B. Sowerby, comprising 20 volumes in all. Cerithioidea was not yet recognized in Reeve's days as a superfamily, but the gross similarity of the genera involved made this "natural" grouping evident and the short time span between the parts published suggests that they were studied by the author(s) simultaneously. These monographs, perhaps the first done by Sowerby alone, include the description of several hundred species including many that were poorly known or new. Most of the descriptions are based on material collected by the most famous shell collector of the 19th century, Hugh Cuming (1791-1865). "...Reeve had become acquainted with Cuming, and Reeve's life was changed forever. ... Their association was such as to encourage Reeve to begin the Conchologia Iconica in 1843 primarily for description of Cuming material. Many of the Part covers for the Iconica carry the wording “Illustrated chiefly from the Cumingian Collection" (Petit). Small paper repair to one text leaf margin, a few tiny pencil annotations, otherwise very good with all the plates clean and finely, accurately hand-coloured. Caprotti, p. 213; Nissen ZBI, 3331.

        The Gipsies; Being a Brief Account of Their History,origin, Capabilities, Manners and Customs with Suggestions for the Reformation and Conversion of the English Gissies.

      London: W. Lister, 1865. Small Octavo. . ix, 178 pp. (2)pp. ads. . While the aristocrats looked down upon the Gipsies for their habits, sloviness and their frequent theft of money or property, Henry Woodcock was among the leading ministers in England who felt they should be viewed as needing the same Gospel that was aimed at all people. They devised scams of every sort such as stealing a horse and selling it to the owner's wife telling her this was an even more noble horse of the same pedigree (costing the owner 10 pounds in the process). Details their devotion to fortune-telling, instead of using banks to invest they would take their valuable acquisitions and deposit them with pawn brokers giving them security just in case inquiring officers inspected their wagons or huts. While the point of Rev. Woodcock's work was to encourage evangelizing the Gipsies, the effect for us today is to enter a glimpse into how a population of an estimated 50 to 60,000 of these outcasts lived and were viewed in Victorian England. Bound in publisher's burgundy floral embossed cloth, spine gilt lettered and with a floral gilt design, pale yellow endpapers, light wear to corners and spine ends, front inner hinge just starting.

        LOYAL UNION STATE TICKET. FOR GOVERNOR, WM. G. BROWNLOW.

      [N.p., likely Nashville. 1865]. - Broadside, 11 3/4 x 2 3/4 inches. Toned, small hole affecting just a few initials in three names. Very good. An unrecorded and important Unionist election ticket for the state offices in Reconstruction Tennessee in 1865. The Republican newspaper editor and staunch Unionist William Gannaway Brownlow is listed as the nominee for governor. The ticket also includes the nominees for the Tennessee General Assembly, the Senators listed by district. Tennessee Unionists had nominated Brownlow for governor, and also offered two important state constitutional amendments at their convention in January 1865: one to outlaw slavery and the other repealing the Ordinance of Secession. On March 4, the two amendments passed easily, and Brownlow won the election by a popular vote of 23,352 to 35. William G. Brownlow, who worked in his early life as a Methodist minister, was one of the most important and controversial southern anti-secessionists. Previously the editor of the TENNESSEE WHIG and later the KNOXVILLE WHIG (the last pro-Union newspaper operating in the Confederacy), Brownlow was a loud voice against secession, believing that the Confederacy would establish nothing more than a southern planter-class aristocracy. At the outset of the Civil War, he refused allegiance to the Confederacy, and fled to the mountains on the border with North Carolina in November 1861. After he was found the next month, he was arrested on suspicion of burning railroad bridges, and initially charged with treason. With his jailers under intense political pressure, Brownlow only spent about a month in jail, before being released and sent into Union-controlled territory near Nashville on March 3, 1862. He spent the next few years traveling back and forth from the north to the south, agitating against the war. Towards the end of the war, Tennessee Unionists decided to hold an election for governor, and put forth Brownlow as their only nominee. Brownlow's election as the first Reconstruction-era governor of Tennessee resulted both in the state being the first to leave the Confederacy, and the first to be formally readmitted to the Union in 1866. His only term as governor was marked by some controversy. Once Brownlow decided to align himself with the Radical Republicans, some of Brownlow's policies were seen as draconian. And decisions such as empowering freed slaves to vote in Tennessee elections helped give rise to the Tennessee Ku Klux Klan. Not in Mitchell's checklist nor in any standard reference. A seemingly-unique copy of an important political artifact from Reconstruction Tennessee.

        Slaughter Pen, Foot of Round Top, Gettysburg (plate 44 from Gardner's Photographic Sketch Book of the War)

      Albumen print (approx. 7 x 9 in.), original mount with lithographed frame and caption. Minor occasional soiling and fading. Excellent condition, with good strong tones. This famous site on the Gettysburg battlefield is in front of Little Round Top. The most celebrated collection of Civil War photographs, Gardner's Photographic Sketch Book of the War contains "many of the most graphic and memorable Civil War images that have come down to us" (ICP). The photographs covered the entire conflict from Manassas in 1862 to the dedication of the monument at Bull Run in June 1865. Gardner presents the photographs, each accompanied by his descriptive text, as "mementoes of the fearful struggle," recording war as it had never been recorded before. Alexander Gardner joined Mathew Brady's studio in the 1850s and introduced the new wet-plate collodion process there. This process was employed in the photographs of the Sketch Book. When Brady's sight deteriorated in the 1850s, Gardner became the studio's chief photographer. Working with the Army of the Potomac as a civilian photographer, Gardner happened to be present during the Battle of Antietam. Carrying his heavy equipment over the battlefield in the immediate aftermath of this bloodiest of battles, he captured a series of beautiful and shocking images. Within a month of publication they were exhibited at Brady's New York gallery, where crowds waited in line for hours to view them. When Brady accepted credit for the images, as he was wont to do, the outraged Gardner resigned and set up his own studio, bringing the leading Brady photographers with him. These men, including George Barnard, David Knox, Timothy O'Sullivan, and William Pywell, contributed to the immense Photographic Sketch Book project, and they are scrupulously credited in its captions.

"One of the memorable spots in the history of the war ... traces of the engagement are evident in the overturned stone wall, the shattered fences, and down-trodden appearance of the adjacent ground" (Gardner). The most celebrated collection of Civil War photographs, Gardner's Photographic Sketch Book of the War contains "many of the most graphic and memorable Civil War images that have come down to us" (ICP). The photographs covered the entire conflict from Manassas in 1862 to the dedication of the monument at Bull Run in June 1865. Gardner presents the photographs, each accompanied by his descriptive text, as "mementoes of the fearful struggle," recording war as it had never been recorded before. Alexander Gardner joined Mathew Brady's studio in the 1850s and introduced the new wet-plate collodion process there. This process was employed in the photographs of the Sketch Book. When Brady's sight deteriorated in the 1850s, Gardner became the studio's chief photographer. Working with the Army of the Potomac as a civilian photographer, Gardner happened to be present during the Battle of Antietam. Carrying his heavy equipment over the battlefield in the immediate aftermath of this bloodiest of battles, he captured a series of beautiful and shocking images. Within a month of publication they were exhibited at Brady's New York gallery, where crowds waited in line for hours to view them. When Brady accepted credit for the images, as he was wont to do, the outraged Gardner resigned and set up his own studio, bringing the leading Brady photographers with him. These men, including George Barnard, David Knox, Timothy O'Sullivan, and William Pywell, contributed to the immense Photographic Sketch Book project, and they are scrupulously credited in its captions.
