        Fortifications on Heights of Centreville, Va. (plate 5 from Gardner’s Photographic Sketch Book of the War)

      Washington: Gardner 1865 - 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 fine view shows Confederate defenses near Bull Run. After the first battle of Bull Run the Confederates extended their earthworks from Manassas across Bull Run and along the ridge of Centreville. 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.

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

        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.

        Archive of Business Correspondence Urbana Wine Company Hammondsport, New York 1890s

      - The archive consists of approximately 182 letters, 278 pages, both handwritten and typed, plus 20 ephemeral items, they are all in very good, legible condition, and are all generally on company letterhead, and quite attractive. Altogether a substantial and revealing file of correspondence regarding the marketing of an important New York State wine producer. An interesting archive of business correspondence from the Urbana Wine Company, a pioneering Finger Lakes winery, established in 1865. At the period covered here, the 1890s, New York had established itself as a dominant wine producer- second only to California. Urbana¿s product line included sweet and dry Catawba, claret, Tokay, port, brandy and sherry. The company¿s ¿Gold Seal¿ champagne ¿ special dry, extra dry and brut ¿ was the leading American sparkling white at the time, and later in the next century, following prohibition, the company greatly influenced the region¿s viticulture by hiring a manager from Veuve Cliquot. The archive can be divided into the following sections: 1. 48 typed and autograph letters signed, (two incomplete) from Urbana sales representative, John L. Huss, totaling 126 pages, regarding wine customers, their likes and dislikes, and orders for wine, from hotels and restaurants, saloons, hospitals, rail cars, etc., largely in New England and New York City. January 1897 ¿ March 1898. These are substantial and detailed letters written on the road from an aggressive salesman (at one point he apologizes for an angry outburst, saying ¿you didn¿t hire me for my looks,¿) who cultivates business in a broad spectrum of venues, from local road houses to the Boston Yacht Club and fancy hotels. 2. 20 autograph letters signed, totaling 38 pages from the President of the Urbana Wine Company, W. E. Hildreth, to the Director and Manager, J. W. Davis, regarding advertising and marketing, pricing, finances, sales reps (including Mr. Huss, above) and other executive matters. 3. 3 autograph letters, signed and 1 typed letter signed by J. W. Davis, Director and Manager, mostly regarding appointments. September 1893-December 1897. 4. 7 typed letters signed, and 3 autograph letters signed, by Alpha S. DeLissa, wine and spirit merchant, to J. W. Davis of the Urbana Wine Company, regarding orders and shipments, together with 8 bank receipts, outlining payments made by DeLissa to Urbana. November 1893-April 1895. 5. Approximately 100 pieces of correspondence from customers and vendors of the Urbana Wine Company, including orders from private individuals, hotels and restaurants from as far away as Texas, but mostly from the northeast. Various sizes, various dates. 6. A dozen miscellaneous ephemeral items relating to the Urbana Wine Company, including order slips and bills. The Urbana Wine Company, was located four miles north of the village of Hammondsport, in the town of Urbana, Steuben County, New York. The winery was established in 1865, and known as the Urbana Wine Company until 1881 when it was reorganized under the name of ¿New Urbana Wine Company.¿ The company applied for the Gold Seal trademark in 1887. The company was renamed the ¿Urbana Wine Company¿ in 1896. The company reorganized after the passage of the Volstead Act and the beginning of Prohibition, and renamed the Gold Seal Products Company. During Prohibition the company produced sacramental wine. After Prohibition the name was returned to ¿Urbana Wine Company, Inc.¿ After Prohibition, Edward Stewart Underhill, Jr., President of the company went to Rheims, France and brought Charles Fournier, from Veuve Cliquot, where he served as production manager. Underhill hired him as the winemaker and production manager of Urbana Wine Company, and although Fournier intended to stay just a few years, he remained employed there the rest of his life. He introduced several important French-American hybrid grape varieties into the production of wine. He was made pr

        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.

        L.a.f., non datata (ma 1865)

      - 2 pp. in-8, vergate al recto ed al verso. «Caro Cecchino (?), A Montepulciano andai nel 1829. Sono dunque 36 anni. Non posso rammentarmi di tutti i miei scritti d'epoca così remota. Io so che il Vicario Martini mi propose fare domanda perché mi fosse concesso il ritorno, ed io negai; attesi il minuto col piè nella staffa, e me ne andai. Non è possibile il carteggio che si dice. E bada che l'articolo dice:-Supplicante al Granduca.Dunque dov'è la supplica al Granduca? Questa deve uscire fuori:-No, no: venga fuori quello che hanno: infami sono, sempre. Insisti o fuori la supplica o ritrattazione. .». La lettera va riferita ad una tarda polemica politico-giornalistica circa una presunta supplica che il Guerrazzi avrebbe inoltrato al Granduca nel periodo dell'esilio di Montepulciano (durante il quale incontrò Mazzini ed aderì al suo programma politico). Va ricordato che Guerrazzi partecipò, ai moti toscani del '31 (che gli costarono la relegazione all'Elba) e del '48-'49, ricoprendo la carica di Dittatore (per i quali subì prima la carcerazione e poi l'esilio in Corsica). F.D.Guerrazzi (Livorno 1804-1873), fu uomo politico e scrittore famoso per i suoi romanzi storici. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        1865 Original Paperback Wisden, Facs Spine, 2nd Edition!

      Hi, This lot is an 1865 Original Paperback Wisden. It has an expertly made facsimile spine and is an original 2nd Edition Wisden. It is in Good Condition. I was proud to own this book for years (hence how I can offer it at such a low price) but I have now purchased an original with original spine-ish so my book is up for sale, the covers here have some marks, , a bit of light staining to the front cover but not inside the book. The rear cover has some wear too. The first page has a stamp from the Sydney Pardon Estate which is a nice bonus. The spine holds the book together very well and so is tightly bound. Inside the book is nice and bright and clean, a very rare book. It is quite a bit shorter than my 1864 but so is my new replacement, must have been cut fine back then. Please see the large pictures. More available on request. Please see the Video for more info... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BjRZOKNO7ro Buy-it-now. More Photos on request. Payment: Card, Paypal, Cheque or BACS

        Commissary Department, Head-Quarters Army of the Potomac (plate 61 from Gardner’s Photographic Sketch Book of the War)

      Washington: Gardner 1865 - “The commissary at General Headquarters of the Army of the Potomac was nothing less than an immense grocery establishment. Coffee, tea, sugar, molasses, bacon, salt pork, fresh beef, potatoes, rice, flour &c. were always kept on hand in large quantities” (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.

        SOLDIER'S LETTER. A REGIMENTAL PAPER - TO ACCOMPANY THE REGIMENT. Vol. 1. No. 23

      [Fort Riley, Ks.], 1865. [3]pp. Quarto, on a folded folio sheet. Old fold lines and minor soiling. Very good plus. An extremely rare regimental newspaper, printed on a field press in Fort Riley, Kansas. The Second Colorado Cavalry, organized in 1863 and stationed at Fort Riley, Kansas, served also from Kansas City, Independence, Westport, Hickman's Mills, Pleasant Hill, and Harrisonville, Missouri. Its detachments engaged in almost constant fighting around central Missouri. Commanded by Col. James Ford, the regiment was charged with protecting the Kansas citizens from guerillas. This issue of the SOLDIER'S LETTER, published just two weeks after President Lincoln's assassination, contains an ode and article on his death. The paper also notes Jefferson Davis' capture and attempts by "negro troops" to "massacre of rebel citizens of Memphis." The SOLDIER'S LETTER was published longer than most regimental newspapers, from August 1864 until November 1865. Both Confederate and Union armies produced various regimental newspapers which provide important perspectives into the lives of Civil War soldiers. Any issues are rare.

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

      New York: H. & W. Voight, 1865. Handcolored lithograph, 9 1/2 x 11 3/4 inches. Lightly toned, with minor wear. Very good. A satirical political print showing "moving day" at Confederate headquarters in Richmond. The lithograph depicts Gen. Robert E. Lee loading old swords in a dog cart with two scrawny dogs attached, while Treasury Secretary George Trenholm hauls a string of boxes carrying worthless bonds over his shoulder, each bearing the name of a Confederate state. A box on the sidewalk marked "C.S.A. Treasury (on which a dog is unabashedly urinating) is also labeled as "Waste Paper," and the building in the background sports signs that read "Sheriff Sale" and "To let. Apply Lincoln & Co." Several individuals - including two African Americans, one thumbing his nose - look on. The title date of May 1 would lead one to think that this lithograph was issued on that date, but in fact it was probably issued earlier in the spring, before the collapse of the Confederacy, and is speculating on its demise with May 1 as a projected to date. In fact, Richmond was occupied by Union troops on April 3. Likewise, the reference to "Lincoln & Co." is unlikely after his death on April 15. Finally, Treasury Secretary Trenholm had resigned on April 27, although this detail might have escaped a cartoonist. A very rare image.

        Lettre autographe signée

      - KIPLING Rudyard (1865-1936), écrivain britannique. L.A.S. adressée au Dr Currey. « The Woolsack, Rosebank, Capetown », 15 janvier 1904. 1 p. in-12 en anglais. Avec enveloppe. Il remercie son correspondant pour son mot. S'il n'est pas certain d'être à Woolsack pendant l'été, il precise néanmoins : « I should greatly like to see your house and know how you're getting on. » [J'aimerais grandement voir votre maison et savoir comment vous allez.] Entre 1898 et 1908, Kipling occupa régulièrement The Woolsack , chalet d'été de son ami Cecil John Rhodes (1853-1902) qui avait fait rebâtir l'endroit par l'architecte Herbert Baker, pour le laisser à la disposition d'artistes et d'écrivains. Kipling en devint, selon la volonté testamentaire de Rhodes, locataire à vie. La famille Currey, bénéficiant elle aussi de la générosité de Rhodes, habita une autre propriété de l'homme d'affaires, également construite par Baker, à Welgelgen.
