        Ulysses S. Grant Civil War Letter

      1865 - Autograph war letter signed "U.S. Grant, Lt. General" , dated March 12, 1865 and marked "Cipher" (sent by telegram). War letter on the letterhead of Headquarters, Army of the Potomac. Very fine, attractive, and important full, one-page war letter, entirely in Grant's hand, to Secretary of War Stanton in Washington with an account of Gen. Phil Sheridan's troop movements in the last weeks of the Civil War. On March 12, Sheridan's troops were in hot pursuit of Lee's Army of Northern Virginia en-route to Lee's surrender at Appomattox, a few weeks later. In the letter, Grant informs Stanton that, "The scouts who brought Gen. Sheridan's dispatch represent having found forage and provisions in great abundance. He also found plenty of horses to remount his men where their horses failed. They say that the command is better mounted now than when they left. I start supplies and forage for Sheridan tonight. I have also sent for the command that is now on the Potomac to run up to White House [on the James River] and to remain there until they meet Sheridan." The letter is signed, "U.S. Grant, Lt. Gen." The episode related in the letter concerning "the [two] scouts who brought Gen. Sheridan¿s dispatch" is well documented in both Grant's and Sheridan's published Memoirs. Copies of the pertinent text from each will be supplied with the letter. Reading Grant's memoir wording, it appears certain that he had this very letter at hand when, years later, he wrote the account of the incident in his highly acclaimed memoir. Purchased from Goodspeed's Bookshop in Boston, 1974. Rare, important, and fine.

        MINERS AND TRAVELERS' GUIDE TO OREGON, WASHINGTON, IDAHO, MONTANA, WYOMING, AND COLORADO VIA THE MISSOURI AND COLUMBIA RIVERS

      New York: Wm. M. Franklin, 1865. FIRST EDITION. Intended for those preparing to undertake the long, arduous journey across the Territories to the West Coast, this guide offers a fascinating glimpse into the practical considerations, logistics, and everyday realities that these emigrants faced. It includes information about the amount of supplies that ought to be procured, the price of oxen, proposed itineraries, weather, the availability of grazing land, and other practical advice that one would need to know for a successful journey. It also includes sections describing the geography and natural resources, making it an important source of information about gold and silver mining in the area. Of particular interest is the section titled "Indians along the Route," in which the author enumerates the various tribes that one might encounter along the way, their habits, locations, and estimated numbers. More politically charged are his ideas for how the US government ought to "keep them in order." This includes forcibly taking away Indian children to reeducate them "under a proper system" and transferring the duties of the Indian Affairs to the War Department "so that the hand that rewards should be the one to punish when needed." Included here is an important map, impressive for its range and the amount of detail it shows, including trails, mail roads, and well-travelled emigrant routes. Copies available on the market are often missing the map and/or they fall considerably short of the present copy in terms of condition.. 191 x 125 mm.

        ALS in draft to an unknown correspondent. 'I lose not a single moment in addressing this letter to you ... I made a charge against you in the Garrick Club ... I indiscreetly made it in the strongest belief that I was right ... since I left the Committee Room today I have had reason to believe - reason that I could not possibly foresee - that I was wrong. I therefore beg in the fullest and amplest manner to express my regret ...' With some 17 deletions and insertions.

      [1865] 20 lines on verso only single 8vo leaf, headed paper of All the Year Round.This is recorded in vol. XI of Pilgrim Letters, p.20, BUT WITHOUT NOTING THE INSERTIONS & CORRECTIONS. A draft letter to a member of the Garrick Club. The letter dates to February 1865 and is written in the aftermath of the blackballing on 25 February of W.H. Wills, Dickens's assistant, by members of the Club. Dickens initially resigned membership on the same day, to be followed on the 3rd May with a note requesting that the Secretary 'with-hold my letter of retirement ... as it is possible that I may have occasion to enter the Club once more, before finally leaving it ...' His 'withdrawal', with Wilkie Collins & Fechter, eventually took place on 9th March. Dickens joined and resigned from the Garrick several times - most famously over the 'Garrick Club Dispute' between Thackeray and Edmund Yates in 1858 - but this resignation in 1865 was his last. Presumably the intended recipient of the letter, if it was ever sent, was either the Secretary or to a committee member of the Club who had been verbally attacked by Dickens. A most unusual document: Dickens was clearly exercised by the whole business and lost his temper - this manuscript shows him admitting 'I was wrong'. It is also unusual in being a heavily corrected draft, when Dickens was normally a supremely confident letter-writer. CAROL CHECK - Dickens's - use throughout PLEASE NOTE: For customers within the UK and the EU, this item is subject to VAT.

        Original Manuscript Diary of Union Army Lieutenant Lowell Nichols

      New Bern, NC: np, 1865. A CIVIL WAR DIARY WITH EXCELLENT CONTENT, COVERING THE FALL OF RICHMOND, LEE'S SURRENDER AND LINCOLN'S ASSASSINATION. Lt. Nichols begins his diary in January, 1865, while stationed at New Bern, NC, and his early entries record the basic activities of army life: drills, marching, target practice. His troop, however, is soon sent to scout for, and then fight the Confederate soldiers ("Rebs") under Captain "Greely" [Captain Edwin Seneca Greeley, who rose to become Brevet Brigadier General and post-bellum a prominent financier]. He writes of his encountering and engaging with the enemy, mentioning Sherman on March 19 ("Heavy firing of artillery heard in the direction of Goldsboro, perhaps Sherman is fighting there.").He writes of lighter moments ("strolled about town to see the pretty girls and found lots of them. Should like to garrison the place for the rest of my term of service") and at other times the diary becomes an outlet for amusing self-reflection (For example, he turned age 29 a few days after he arrived and comments that his late mother would have liked to have seen him set some resolutions but he thinks it better not to set them and then inevitably break them.)He most passionate entries, not surprisingly, correspond to the most significant events on the time. On the fall of Richmond (April 7 entry), he writes:"Hurrah! Huray!! Huroor!!! Richmond has fallen news just arrived everybody wild with joy Bully for old U S Grant & Abe Bully for everybody 2500 prisoners & 500 pieces of artillery captured, Richmond & Petersburgh in our possession, Lee skedaddling westward & Grant pursuing...him...& his army...to Hell the final home of all traitors..."On receiving the news of Lincoln's assassination (April 16 entry), he laments:"The terrible news of the murder of President Lincoln has just been sent officially over the wires to General Harland & the headquarters. Flag is mournfully floating at half mast in respect to the illustrious dead, the tidings have fallen on the army with sudden & terrible effect we had not dreamed that such a calamity could befall us & we cannot realize that it is so..."O April 19 he announces the end of the war:"Sessation [sic] of Hostilities and Peace soon to be proclaimed from the Potomac to the Rio Grande."And after he learns that the president's assassin is John Wilkes Booth, the actor, he writes that the "Son of a Bitch ...can perform once more on the stage with a rope around his neck."Approximately 138 entries, written in both pen and pencil (the pencil is sometimes light). In addition to the diary there are a about six pages recording purchases made for food and other supplies for the soldiers. Also laid in is an authentic bank note from the Bank of Tennessee for ten cents, dated Nashville December 1st 1861. With prefatory material on astronomy, postage rates, a calendar with moon phases, and taxes and stamp duties.[New Bern NC]: [1865]. Small (approx. 3x6 inches) diary bound in soft black leather with flap enclosure; housed in custom silk box. Tear to top right corner of diary title page; text in excellent condition.A FASCINATING CONTEMPORARY RECORD OF SOME OF THE MOST MOMENTOUS EVENTS OF THE CIVIL WAR. Very Good.

        SUPPLEMENT TO THE DAILY CONSTITUTIONALIST. AUGUSTA, GA., SUNDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 3, 1865

      Augusta, Ga, 1865. Folio broadsheet, approximately 21 3/4 x 14 inches. Previously folded. Light tanning at edges, a few stray ink marks. Very good plus. An exceedingly rare newspaper printing of an early draft of the proposed Georgia state constitution of 1865. This document attempted to fulfill the requirements place on Confederate states by the federal government after the end of the Civil War, including the repeal of secession, the abolition of slavery, and repudiation of war debts. Although this constitution addressed several of the obligations for readmission, the Georgia legislature refused to ratify the Fourteenth Amendment, and the state was placed into Reconstruction and military rule. Only after federal control under Reconstruction was established did an acceptable constitution receive passage in 1868. This supplement to the DAILY CONSTITUTIONALIST prints the proposed constitution almost in its entirety on the recto of the broadsheet and the remainder in one half column on the verso. Numerous advertisements fill the rest of the space on the verso. This draft was printed in September, but Georgia's Constitutional Convention was not commenced until the next month in Milledgeville, and the final draft of the document was not adopted until November 6, 1865, just over two months after this printing. As a result, this version of the document exhibits numerous differences from the final one. An enormously rare imprint, we locate only one potential copy, at the American Antiquarian Society.

The empire headed for Egypt in the second half of the 19th century in the name of Ottoman modernization. On April 3, 1863, Sultan Abdulaziz traveled to Egypt. L. Gardey was one of the sultan's chefs and accompanied him for this voyage. According to Gardey, the reason for this campaign was to be known as an eastern country of Egypt which placed great importance on western modernization. Sultan Abdulaziz wanted to strengthen Egypt's attachment to Istanbul by going to this Ottoman province, which started to become a separate government since Mehmed Ali Pasha's rebellion. This voyage was described by Gardey's brilliant style. First Edition. Signed and inscribed by Gardey as 'A mon ami A. Baltud, drogman, chancelor substitut de l'ambassade de France. Hommage de mes meilleurs sentiments, L. Gardey" to A. Baltus. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Original Manuscript Diary of Union Army Lieutenant Lowell Nichols

      New Bern, NC: np, 1865. First Edition. Original leather. Very Good. A CIVIL WAR DIARY WITH EXCELLENT CONTENT, COVERING THE FALL OF RICHMOND, LEE'S SURRENDER AND LINCOLN'S ASSASSINATION. Lt. Nichols begins his diary in January, 1865, while stationed at New Bern, NC, and his early entries record the basic activities of army life: drills, marching, target practice. His troop, however, is soon sent to scout for, and then fight the Confederate soldiers ("Rebs") under Captain "Greely" [Captain Edwin Seneca Greeley, who rose to become Brevet Brigadier General and post-bellum a prominent financier]. He writes of his encountering and engaging with the enemy, mentioning Sherman on March 19 ("Heavy firing of artillery heard in the direction of Goldsboro, perhaps Sherman is fighting there."). He writes of lighter moments ("strolled about town to see the pretty girls and found lots of them. Should like to garrison the place for the rest of my term of service") and at other times the diary becomes an outlet for amusing self-reflection (For example, he turned age 29 a few days after he arrived and comments that his late mother would have liked to have seen him set some resolutions but he thinks it better not to set them and then inevitably break them.) He most passionate entries, not surprisingly, correspond to the most significant events on the time. On the fall of Richmond (April 7 entry), he writes: "Hurrah! Huray!! Huroor!!! Richmond has fallen news just arrived everybody wild with joy Bully for old U S Grant & Abe Bully for everybody 2500 prisoners & 500 pieces of artillery captured, Richmond & Petersburgh in our possession, Lee skedaddling westward & Grant pursuing...him...& his army...to Hell the final home of all traitors..." On receiving the news of Lincoln's assassination (April 16 entry), he laments: "The terrible news of the murder of President Lincoln has just been sent officially over the wires to General Harland & the headquarters. Flag is mournfully floating at half mast in respect to the illustrious dead, the tidings have fallen on the army with sudden & terrible effect we had not dreamed that such a calamity could befall us & we cannot realize that it is so..." O April 19 he announces the end of the war: "Sessation [sic] of Hostilities and Peace soon to be proclaimed from the Potomac to the Rio Grande." And after he learns that the president's assassin is John Wilkes Booth, the actor, he writes that the "Son of a Bitch ...can perform once more on the stage with a rope around his neck." Approximately 138 entries, written in both pen and pencil (the pencil is sometimes light). In addition to the diary there are a about six pages recording purchases made for food and other supplies for the soldiers. Also laid in is an authentic bank note from the Bank of Tennessee for ten cents, dated Nashville December 1st 1861. With prefatory material on astronomy, postage rates, a calendar with moon phases, and taxes and stamp duties. [New Bern NC]: [1865]. Small (approx. 3x6 inches) diary bound in soft black leather with flap enclosure; housed in custom silk box. Tear to top right corner of diary title page; text in excellent condition. A FASCINATING CONTEMPORARY RECORD OF SOME OF THE MOST MOMENTOUS EVENTS OF THE CIVIL WAR.

        The Battle between the Minamoto and Taira clans at Yajima [1185]

      Edo, Japan, 1865. Title: The battle between the Minamoto and Taira clans at Yajima [1185]. Artist: Tsukioka Yoshitoshi (1839-92). Signed: Ikkaisai Yoshitoshi ga. Note that early on Yoshitoshi took the secondary "studio" name Ikkaisai and that 1865 was the last year when he used that studio name on a regular basis, although he used it occasionally after 1865. Date: date seal Kei-o 1(1865) and publisher cartouche. By 1865 Yoshitoshi was ranked tenth most popular Ukiyo-e artist in the Edo Almanac (Edo Saiseiki). Size: HxW 14.25 x 19.5 inches. Oban tate-e. Unframed Japanese woodblock diptych set, two sheets (the middle and right panels), originally from a triptych of three sheets. The two sheets gently glued together along the shared border. Condition: Very Good. Strong impression with the blocks apparently little worn. Almost no wrinkles or soiling or fading. No holes observed. Margins are trimmed. Unbacked. Two tape remnants to the back of the center sheet. Comments: Presumed early state of early printing. Bright aniline dye colors include purple, reddish-orange, pink, green, deep blue, sea-foam blue, medium brown, and light yellow. Masterful with regard to composition, color and dramatic intensity. Compare this 1865 print to the artist's debut print of 1853, when the artist was 14, a triptych titled, Bunji Gannen Heiki no Ichimon Horobi Kaichu ni Ochiiru Zu. (In 1185 the Heiki Clan sank to their doom in the sea.) See pp. 28-29 of Yoshitoshi: the Splendid Decadent, by Shinichi Segi. Even the debut print, while by definition immature, shows Yoshitoshi's "characteristically painstaking concern with detail and overall composition." The Taira fleet was ambushed at Yajima by Minamoto Yoshitsune and was completely destroyed. This was the famous naval battle of Dannoura of 1185 on the Inland Sea. Interestingly, the late 12th century has been shown (by dendrochronology) to have been one of the hottest and driest periods in the history of Japan. This weather meant very bad crops, which meant severe famines, which in turn meant increased social strife and warfare.. Signed by Illustrator. Presumed First Edition. Very Good. Illus. by Yoshitoshi. Folio - over 12" - 15" tall. Fine Art Print.

        SUPPLEMENT TO THE DAILY CONSTITUTIONALIST. AUGUSTA, GA., SUNDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 3, 1865.

      Augusta, Ga. September 3, 1865. - Folio broadsheet, approximately 21 3/4 x 14 inches. Previously folded. Light tanning at edges, a few stray ink marks. Very good plus. An exceedingly rare newspaper printing of an early draft of the proposed Georgia state constitution of 1865. This document attempted to fulfill the requirements place on Confederate states by the federal government after the end of the Civil War, including the repeal of secession, the abolition of slavery, and repudiation of war debts. Although this constitution addressed several of the obligations for readmission, the Georgia legislature refused to ratify the Fourteenth Amendment, and the state was placed into Reconstruction and military rule. Only after federal control under Reconstruction was established did an acceptable constitution receive passage in 1868. This supplement to the DAILY CONSTITUTIONALIST prints the proposed constitution almost in its entirety on the recto of the broadsheet and the remainder in one half column on the verso. Numerous advertisements fill the rest of the space on the verso. This draft was printed in September, but Georgia's Constitutional Convention was not commenced until the next month in Milledgeville, and the final draft of the document was not adopted until November 6, 1865, just over two months after this printing. As a result, this version of the document exhibits numerous differences from the final one. An enormously rare imprint, we locate only one potential copy, at the American Antiquarian Society.

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." [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
