La comédie fut représentée pour la première fois, à Paris, sur le Théâtre du Palais - Royal le 24 décembre 1864. Quatre mois plus tôt, le 25 août 1864, Édouard Bravel et Maurice Wille avaient fait représenter, au théâtre lyrique, Les tribulations d'un photographe, vaudeville en un acte. Ainsi, ces deux pièces marquent, en France en 1864, l'entrée du métier de photographe comme motif littéraire, ou plus exactement, le fait que l'activité de photographe est suffisamment un fait de mœurs acquis pour entrer en littérature puisque ici, la valeur comique de la pièce d'Halévy et de Meilhac repose sur le décalage de connaissances entre le personnage principal, qui se prétend photographe de métier à des fins de séductions, et le public de la pièce représenté. On noterons aussi, dans la première scène, l'emploi comique, car abscons, des termes techniques de la chimie photographiques du temps. Superbe exemplaire de cette œuvre rare, dans une agréable reliure légèrement postérieure

        [Confederate Imprint - Hampton Roads Peace Conference] Message of the President . . . submitting a report of the commissioners . . . with a view to the restoration of Peace

      Richmond, Virginia: Confederate States of America, 1865. Pamphlet. Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Dated February 6, 1865. Four-page bi-folded sheet. Clean with marginal toning. Minor edge-wear. Confederate imprint, see Parrish & Willingham 940. In the winter of 1864-5, pressure began to mount in both the North and the South to bring the American Civil War to a close, and on 3 February 1865 a Peace Conference was held upon the Union transport ship, River Queen, at Hampton Roads, Virginia. The Confederacy was represented by A. H. Stephens (Vice-President), R. M. T. Hunter (a Senator and former Secretary of State), and J. A. Campbell (Assistant Secretary of War). President Lincoln and William H. Seward (Secretary of State) represented the United States. Lincoln's terms included the restoration of the union, an immediate cessation of hostilities, and the disbanding of the Confederate Army; he was, however, willing to compromise on the issue of slavery by delaying emancipation, providing reparations to the South for any slaves that would be emancipated, and/or allowing the question of emancipation to be decided in the courts. Davis immediately rejected Lincoln's proposal, publicly characterizing it as a demand for unconditional surrender, and used the conference to generate continued support for the war, which finally ended two months later.

        Shinjutsu hiyo [trans.: Secret Method of Acupuncture].

      [Edited by Kensaku Nakamura]. Many illus. (mostly full-page) in the text. 37; 33; 42 folding leaves. Three vols. 8vo, orig. pale blue wrappers (wrappers & labels quite rubbed), new stitching. Osaka: 1865. First edition of this very rare work on acupuncture; it is considered to be amongst the most important books on the subject of the period. Sakai (1815-78), was a medical practitioner and known as the most accomplished acupuncturist of his time. He learned acupuncture from Dr. Komori in Kyoto, who instructed his student to insert the needles at different angles from the norm. The present work was edited by Sakai's student Kensaku Nakamura. This work discusses and illustrates the pressure points, how to use the needles to treat various diseases, and the use of herbs according to the teachings of the Shanghan Lun and the Jin Gui Yao Lue (Essential Prescriptions from the Golden Cabinet), both classic texts of ancient traditional Chinese medicine. Many pharmaceutical recipes are provided. The illustrations are entirely modernized, so different from the traditional woodcuts one finds in earlier acupuncture books. They depict in an extremely clear way the pressure points, how to find them, and how to insert them in a "sideways" fashion. Fine copy. WorldCat locates no copy of our first edition but does list reprints in 1927 and 1974. .

        Anti-Black, Anti-Lincoln 2nd Inauguration Broadside: Hymn. To be sung in all the Churches in the United States on or after the 4th of March, 1865

      Possibly Jersey City: Unknown Publisher, 1865. Broadside. Very Good. A terrific anti-Lincoln broadside with a wickedly satirical five-stanza song hailing "the power of Abraham's name" and the elevation of the black man. It begins by praising President Lincoln's success in requiring "white folks to prostrate" themselves while "the colored gentleman" is "crown[ed] as "lord of all." It goes on to celebrate that the "Constitution, and the rights of States, no more be known; For we have made the Sambo races Superior to our own." The lyrics then express pride that "For this we've fought-for this we've prayed-The Nation's life have given" and beseeches "Lord, send the white folks all to hell-the niggers all to heaven . . . [and] Give to our chosen band Of woolly-heads-the sweet-scented crew-A place at thy right hand." The broadside measures 6.5" x 8.5", however the tip of the upper corner and bottom half-inch have been torn away affecting border. The print has some creases, faint wrinkling, and light stains. The reverse is blank, and it has been hinge-mounted on cardstock using cloth tabs and framed with a buff mat. The missing sections of decorative border have been hand-inked on the cardstock. The first recorded appearance of these lyrics is in a diary of a Union sailor, William Metcalf Hawkins, on January 13, 1862. (a transcript of the journal is maintained by the Navy Department Library), and what appears to be the first printing, titled Hymn and referencing Lincoln's second inauguration on 4 March 1865, appeared on 10 March 1865 in The American Standard, a Jersey City newspaper that supported the Democratic Party. The publisher of this broadside is not identified. Exceptionally scarce; no examples of any format or printing listed in Monaghan, Fish, Hart, Smith, or LoC. As of 2016, no examples are in the trade, no auction records are listed at ABPC or Rare Book Hub, and none held by institutions per OCLC.

        The Modern System of Naval Architecture.

      London: Day and Son, (1865). 3 folio vols. xxxviii, 686 pp. plus folding frontis. and 167 plates, many folding double page. Russell was the naval architect responsible for the ?Great Eastern?, and his biographer, George Emmerson, refers to The Modern System... as, ?a Great Eastern of books. Doubtless the size of the volumes was dictated by the large scale of the many drawings... It is a monument to Russell?s mastery of his subject, his originality and his capacity as a teacher, a veritable Bible to the naval architects of his time.? Russell (1808-1882), discovered the wave of translation, and developed the wave-line system of ship building. He was an early advocate of iron-clad war- ships, and was fond of the American monitors. He built the ?Great Eastern? (1854-57; launched in 1858), the largest vessel of its day, and the first to have a cellular double-bottom, cellular double upper deck, and longitudinal bulkheads - in short, the first iron ship built to iron design, and not simply an adaptation of wooden shipbuilding. Russell was a founding member of the Institute of Naval Architects in 1860. ?The Modern System of Naval Architecture? includes detailed plates of monitors, American revolving turrets, yachts, an American river steamboat, merchant, passenger, and naval vessels, a Pacific Mail Steamer, 5 plates of an Australian iron screw passenger steamer, and 22 detailed plates of the ?Great Eastern?. It is possibly the most important work on naval architecture of its time. NYPL List p. 317. See also D.N.B. This is a presentation copy from the American Shipmasters Association to Captain William New of the US Treasury Department. At some point this set came into the possession of one W.E. Blewett who, in 1938, presented it to the institution from which I purchased it. Aside from a small notice of the Blewett donation tipped onto the front pastedown of each volume, there are no institutional markings anywhere on these books. Uniformly bound in half red morocco over red cloth, with raised bands and gold spine lettering. Volumes I and III have red morocco cover labels printed in gold, reading, "Presented to Capt. Wm. New of the Treasury Department of Washington by the American Shipmasters Association for his Endeavours to Promote the Interests of the Mercantile Marine of the United States. July 22nd 1868." Volume II has suffered damage to the front cover. It lacks the dedication plate, and the cloth covering on the front board is ripped. All the bindings are intact and sound. The backstrips, corners, and covers are rubbed and scuffed. The interiors of all three volumes are in excellent condition. All the text pages and plates - some of which extend to more than six feet in length - are fresh, clean, and in perfect repair. I am offering this set "as is in hopes of avoiding passing the costs of binding repair on to the consumer.

        Breaking Camp, Brandy Station, Virginia (plate 63 from Gardner’s Photographic Sketch Book of the War)

      Washington: Gardner 1865 - “Here is represented the deserted quarters of Gen. Sharp, Chief of the Secret Service of the Army of the Potomac, at Brandy Station, Virginia” (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.

        Stone Talk, Being Some of the Marvellous Sayings of a Petral Portion of Fleet Street, London, to One Doctor Polyglott

      London: Robert Hardwicke, 1865. First Edition. 121 pp, re-bound in plain brown buckram with gilt lettering on spine. Some abrasion to the inner margins (from the re-binding process) visible at the gutter, otherwise very clean. No errata leaf. Armorial bookplate of Alan Cathart, Lord Cathcart laid in. Penzer (pp 77-78) describes this work as "a bitter satire, in blank verse, enumerating many of the crimes which England has committed, and castigating her hypocrisy," and deems it "certainly one of the cleverest of all Burton's books." He ascribes its rarity in part to the fact that Isabel Burton bought up and destroyed a large number of the copies, also noting that it is likely fewer than 200 were printed to begin with.

Bound without the half-titles or adverts. A very good, clean set. 'Our Mutual Friend,' written in the years 1864?65, is the last completed novel written by Charles Dickens, and concerns money, and what money can make of life. Preceding Dickens' final crime-based work 'The Mystery of Edwin Drood', this novel also features elements of intrigue and suspense; John Harmon, a wealthy young heir, is supposed drowned and in a case of mistaken identity his estate is passed to Boffin, a former servant of his father. John must infiltrate the Boffin household and gain their trust and friendship in order to regain his fortune. Collins; Dickens and Crime (1962).

        ROBINSON vs. MANDELL [THE HOWLAND WILL TRIAL]. 15-page manuscript handwritten by Albert Sands Southworth prepared for the plaintiff, illustrated with 6 double page original salt print photographs made by him. Dated, Sept. first week 1867." The manuscript and prints are bound in marbled boards with a cloth spine; a handwritten paper label on the front board reads: "Robinson vs. Mandell, 80th C.C. U.S. Mass. District / For the Complainant / Dep. of Prof Agassiz 412-431 / " " [Dep. of] Alice C. Driscoll / 432-443 also to 461." The printed pages of the depositions discussed are photographed four to a page and placed throughout the document

      - Robinson vs. Mandell (aka the Howland Will Trial) was big news in the 1860s. It was the most sensational mid-nineteenth century trial in America. In 1865 Sylvia Ann Howard's $2 million estate was at stake and there were two wills, one of them perhaps forged. In December 1868 the case was dismissed and the original will stood, evidently disappointing both scientific and legal audiences, because it was dismissed on a technicality. "Miss Hetty," the ambitious Henrietta Howland Robinson (1834-1916), only heir and witness to her aunt's earlier, contested will, had inherited a greater fortune from her father in 1865, and in 1867, during the course of the litigation, she remarried, becoming Hetty Green. After years of legal battles, she settled with the estate's trustees. After a sojourn of several years in London, perhaps to avoid the possibility of being indicted for forgery, she returned to the United States and soon after had great success as an operator on the New York Stock Exchange. In 1881 she moved her financial operations to New York where she flourished as America's first female tycoon, a miserly woman nicknamed "the Witch of Wall Street." When she died in 1916 she was the richest woman in America, and perhaps the whole world.This is an important document, relevant to legal history, the history of science, and American photography. It comprises Southworth's photographs of the printed pages of depositions taken in May 1867, a photograph combining multiple photographs of Sylvia Ann Howard's signature, and three sets of comments by Southworth: on the deposition of Professor Agassiz of Harvard University, on the deposition of Alice Driscoll, and on the deposition of Francis Bartlett, all of which relate to the photographs of Howard's signature (the negatives were made by Southworth in August 1866). Southworth's comments, some quite technical in the first part, take issue with details of Agassiz's deposition, express outrage at the testimony of Miss Driscoll, who saw some of the photographs before the court did ("It flashed upon me that she was a 'spy' and I answered very curtly 'As far as I am concerned you know nothing about them.' She left me quickly and went back to Miss Hetty."), and defends giving Bartlett the photographs he requested "by Judge Thomas' permission."During the ensuing trial Southworth was deposed two times in support of the claim of forgery against the complainant, Hetty Green, and was a key player in the trial. He provided a large number of photographs in evidence. "At the head of their experts, marches Albert S. Southworth, one of the earliest photographers in the country, for twenty-five years engaged in this business; once a teacher of penmanship, and for six or seven years much devoted to questions of handwriting, a frequent expert in courts of law. The study of these signatures and these enlarged photographs has occupied him for weeks. He concludes in the strongest language that signatures #10 and #15 are not genuine" (ALR, pp. 644-46).Albert Sands Southworth (1811-1894) was one of the finest photographers in America, and of great importance to the history of photography. He was an inventor as well as an innovator, and a pioneer in the use of photography to analyze handwriting in court (this document includes a series of signatures on a single page for comparison). Although the case was dismissed, the trial was a landmark in the use of science in court, not only of photography and microscopy (Southworth and Agassiz), but of mathematics as well -- the statistical analysis of Charles Sanders Peirce is of particular importance in the history of American jurisprudence. The cloth spine has deteriorated and the manuscript is largely disbound, but the manuscript pages and plates are in excellent condition overall. (#15570) [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A CAMPAIGN FROM SANTA FE TO THE MISSISSIPPI; BEING A HISTORY OF THE OLD SIBLEY BRIGADE FROM ITS FIRST ORGANIZATION TO THE PRESENT TIME; ITS CAMPAIGNS IN NEW MEXICO, ARIZONA, LOUISIANA AND ARKANSAS, IN THE YEARS 1861-2-3-4

      Shreveport, La.: Shreveport News Printing Establishment, 1865. 151pp. Contemporary plain wrappers, labeled in ink manuscript circa 1900. Skillful repairs to minor marginal tears. Some contemporary notes and corrections in pencil. About half of the final leaf supplied in facsimile. In a half morocco box. Overall very good. The greatest rarity of the Civil War in Texas and the Trans-Mississippi West, Noel's narrative is virtually impossible to obtain; we know of only one other copy to change hands in the last fifty years. The present copy belonged to Lt. Alexander Porter Morse, who made a number of annotations in the text. Morse was attached to the Brigade during its Louisiana operations. The "Sibley Brigade" was formed by Gen. Henry H. Sibley, who conceived the bold plan of recruiting a brigade of troops in Texas to invade New Mexico, Arizona, and Colorado and secure them for the Confederacy, then sieze California. The gold of California and control of the west would give the Confederacy a boost which might sway the outcome of the war. Troops were recruited in the late summer and fall of 1861, and by November, 1861 the Brigade left San Antonio for New Mexico. By early 1862 they had siezed southern New Mexico and Ft. Bliss in Arizona. In February 1862, Union troops pushed south from Colorado, and on the 21st a pitched battle was fought at Valverde which the Brigade won. Sibley chased the Union troops north, but in a second battle at Glorieta Pass in northern New Mexico on March 21, was roundly defeated. This forced the abandonment of the western strategy, and the Confederates retreated to Mesilla and then across Texas, arriving back in east Texas in the summer of 1862. Noel's account is the best of the entire southwestern campaign. In 1863 the Brigade was involved in the defense of Galveston early in the year, and then moved to western Louisiana, where it actively campaigned and took part in numerous conflicts from April onward. The fall of Vicksburg in July effectively cut the trans-Mississippi off from the rest of the Confederacy, and campaigning was confined to northern Louisiana before retreating to winter quarters in Texas. In the spring of 1864 it returned to the vicinity of Alexandria, Louisiana, and engaged in more hard fighting there and then in southern Arkansas until the end of the year. Noel's narrative ends at the end of 1864. This book was probably printed in Shreveport during the winter of 1865, accounting for its extreme rarity. A prospectus exists dated at Houston on March 20, 1865, making it possible that this is not a Confederate imprint but actually issued immediately after the war. Parrish and Willingham locate seven copies, all in institutions with major Americana holdings. To this we can add a copy we know of in a private collection (the Sanders copy, on which his 1961 reprint was based, sold by this firm several years ago) and the present copy. One of the legendary rarities of Texana and the Civil War. HOWES N167, "d." PARRISH & WILLINGHAM 4977.

        36-star US flag

      1865 - (AMERICANA) (NEVADA). Thirty-six star U.S. flag. No place: circa 1865. Cotton and wool flag measuring 6 by 11 feet, with five-point stars arrayed in a Great Star pattern; top and bottom stripes red, blue canton extends to the seventh stripe and rests on the eighth [white] stripe; housed in a triangular oak display box. $12,500.Large 36-star American flag commemorating Nevada statehood, the first flag to appear after the Civil War, with stars arrayed in a "Great Star" pattern, "widely regarded as the most beautiful of the Stars and Stripes."Although Nevada became a state while the Civil War was in progress, its membership in the Union was not officially recognized by Congress until July 4, 1865, several months after the war was over" (Druckman & Kohn, 56). The 36-star flag was official until 1867, when a star was added for Nebraska; Andrew Johnson was the only president who served under this flag. "The United States expanded rapidly during the second half of the 19th century as new states joined the union. Until 1912, no regulation governed the arrangement or uniformity of the stars" (Pierce Collection, 9). "The 36-star flag, which became official on July 4, 1865, typically contained five rows of stars" (Leepson, 94). The flag offered here instead has stars arrayed in "the once-illustrious 'Great Star,' perhaps the most beautiful and most loved of any Stars and Stripes. In this splendid form, the 'starry flower of Liberty'-as the flag was named by Oliver Wendell Holmes-held sway during the era of national expansion: 1818 to the end of the Civil War. The 'Great Star' pattern boasted venerable antecedents. One of the earliest motifs of American heraldry, in 1782 it appeared on the Great Seal of the United States. To this day a 'Great Star' adorns the reverse side of the one dollar bill" (Mastai & Mastai, 99-100). "One 19th-century design for flags-rarely found but popular with collectors today-gathered the stars on the canton in a large star configuration, called the 'Great Star' or 'Great Luminary' pattern" (Druckman & Kohn, 21). "The Great Star pattern has an extraordinary folk art quality and is widely regarded as the most beautiful of the Stars and Stripes" (Pierce Collection, 16). Stars of various sizes appearing together, as with this flag, are often seen on "Great Star" flags. This flag has cotton stripes and double-appliqued cotton stars on a wool canton, with all elements machine-stitched. A one-and-one-half by three-inch cotton label with an India ink inscription is sewn on the hoist side of the 12th stripe; this label appears to read "Henry Jury," possibly the ownership label of a veteran of that name from Rife, PA, who served in the Pennsylvania Volunteer Militia during the Civil War and who died in 1918. See Keim & Keim, 123, 128; Pierce Collection, 18. Flag with loss to top hoist end and top and bottom fly ends, eight-inch tear to bottom of canton, eight-inch tear to fly end of fourth (white) stripe, minor soiling and some small holes. Blue canton faded to buff. A lovely example of the desirable "Great Star" flag.
