        A striking huge illustration of the destruction of Fort Sumter accomplished during the Civil War.

      n.p., n.d.. 23" x 30.5". "A magnificent and large engraving, 23"" x 30.5"", entitled, ?FORT SUMTER SOUTH CAROLINA AT THE TIME OF ITS CAPTURE FEBRUARY 18TH 1865. Showing the Effects of the BOMBARDMENT FROM MORRIS ISLAND. To accompany the Report of Maj. Genl. Q.A. Gilmore U.S. Vols. Comdg. Dept. of the South? The engraving features a 1/600 scale plan and matching horizontal section detailing the layout of the fort together with three 1/240 scale elevations as well as thirteen vertical sections. In areas where the destruction of the fort was near complete, the illustrator has added dotted lines to show the outline of the original structure. The engraving provides a vivid illustration of the near complete destruction of the bastion suffered over the course of the war: first with the Confederate bombardment of 1861 resulting in the fort?s surrender by Major John Anderson; then the subsequent Union attempts to take the fort beginning in 1863. In preparation for the Union assault, the Confederates had enlisted 500 slaves to reinforce the old bastion with earth in an attempt to shore up the ruined works, which can be seen in the engraving. After several failed assaults and massive bombardments from Union naval guns, the Confederates evacuated the fort on February 17, 1865. On April 14, 1865, the Union army formally raised the American flag over the fort in an elaborate ceremony. One vertical crease and some light toning do little to detract from this striking presentation. "

        THE SECOND ANNUAL REPORT OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS OF THE NORTHWESTERN FREEDMEN'S AID COMMISSION

      Chicago: James Barnet, 1865.. 24pp. Original yellow printed wrappers. Wrappers lightly soiled, small loss to bottom corner. Light scattered foxing. Internally bright and clean. Very good plus. A report on the meeting of the Northwestern Freedmen's Aid Commission on April 13, 1865. The report includes lists of relief and education agencies operating in support of freed slaves, treasury information, updates on public opinion and morale, and lists of states with operating Freedmen Commissions and their laborers, with most statistics given as of March 31, 1865. As such, it provides a snapshot of the situation of freed slaves just at the end of the Civil War. Most of their operations were in Arkansas, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Tennessee. ^The Freedmen's Aid Commission was an affiliate of the Freedman's Aid Society, which was founded in 1861 to aid ex-slaves who found themselves without education, home, or community. The Society focused its effort on education in particular, recruiting teachers from all over the country to set up schools and teach the illiterate freed slave population. The movement was extremely successful with many members going on to become trained professionals. This report states its aim in the general policy, "...to alleviate the sufferings of the Freed people...to encourage them to aspire at once to a higher plane of living, than the masses of the poor attain."

        Philadelphians Fight Discrimination against Colored Citizens use of the Street Cars during the Civil War

      Philadelphia. 1865. A small archive consisting of two items, a printed circular letter and a related Autograph Letter Signed by B[enjamin]. P. Hunt. The circular letter [caption title]: At a meeting held at Concert Hall, on Friday Evening, the 13th instant, the following Resolutions were unanimously adopted... . Philadelphia, January 17th, 1865. Bifolium printed on two sides. Old folds, ink note by one of the signatories, B.P. Hunt, very near fine [with]: One page Autograph Letter Signed "Bn. P. Hunt" to "Hon. E.R. Hoar" of Concord, Massachusetts, dated 3 February, 1865. Bifolium printed one side. Old folds, else very near fine.The printed resolution decries the treatment of African-Americans on the streetcars of Philadelphia. They note that they are "opposed to the exclusion of respectable persons from our Passenger Railroad Cars on the ground of complexion" and further "...we have heard with shame and sorrow, the statement that decent women of color have been forced to walk long distances, or accept a standing position on the front platform of these cars, exposed to the inclemency of the weather, while visiting, at our military hospitals, their relatives who have been wounded in the defence of the Country." The resolution proposes changes in regulations to alleviate the situation, and further appoints a committee of 21 (including Hunt) to deliver these resolutions in person to each of the Presidents of the city's railroads. The resolutions are signed in print by various prominent white citizens of Philadelphia, the ink note in Hunt's hand refers to a court case concerning the question.In the letter to Hoar (Ebenezer Rockwood Hoar (1816-1895), Attorney General in the Grant administration and Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court Judge), Hunt asks advice about a legal decision in a case decide by "your Judge Abbott" concerning precedents for excluding colored citizens from businesses based on the principle of "usage."Benjamin P. Hunt was Massachusetts-born former pupil of Ralph Waldo Emerson at the Chelmsford Academy who attended Harvard. After graduating he taught school in Philadelphia. Tiring of that he took sail to Jamaica and published an account of his voyage in The Dial, which both Emerson and Hawthorne wrote highly complimentary notices of. He later moved to Haiti, where he became interested in race and the condition of the Negro inhabitants, wrote extensively on the subject (and eventually was asked by President Grant to investigate Grant's long cherished objective of annexing that country). His health failing, he returned to Philadelphia. He was tireless in his efforts to integrate the streetcars and was reportedly largely responsible for their eventual integration.The street car controversy was sparked by the African-American abolitionist William Still, who wrote a letter in 1859 appealing to white citizens to help desegregate the street cars. Despite many initiatives, including ballots (where Philadelphia's citizens voted overwhelmingly to keep the cars segregated), petitions, and proposed legislation, the cars weren't integrated until an 1867 court decision, buoyed by the wave of pro-civil rights legislation in the aftermath of the Civil War.This circular is rare. OCLC locates a single copy of the circular, at the Library Company of Philadelphia .

        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1865 - 1865 Original Paperback Wisden, Facs Spine, 2nd Edition!

      1865. 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.

I know the editions get messy around here but this is the first of the last three editions, Smith 22, with 2 (1865s or 1865/66) following it depending on the date used. The binding is poor. The Covers are missing. The 4 adverts (2 pages) at the front are bound in at the rear (at the end of the book) and ther rear adverts are present apart from the last 4 pages (8 adverts) , this is comparing it to Smiths Guide, some spotting to the odd page. Clear tape to front hinge. It is a tiny book with bright pages and hard to find.

        AN EARLY ALBUMEN PHOTOGRAPHS OF THE SHANGHAI RACE COURSE.

      [Shanghai n.d. ca. 1865-1890]. A group of 5 albumen photo. images, sharp, clear, clean, good contrast, nearly no fading. showing the Shanghai Race Track and Grandstand. R A R E. STUNNING OLD VIEWS OF SHANGHAI'S FOREIGN RACE COURSE TRACK A RARE group of five stunning and earliest photographic images of the Shanghai Racetrack and Grandstand. All images are large size and of the albumen type process. None are dated as was usual, some are mounted on photo album leaves others not. * THE IMAGES: 1. Earliest view of the Racecourse and Grandstand prior to remodeling. Shows lots of spectators looking at a race. Several are on the roof also watching. The fence is of about chest height, the photo was taken from inside the Racetrack, 27.5 x 21cm., circa. 1865-1875. * 2. The Racetrack, looking North-east, there are some horse jumping fences on the ground, some people walk on the exterior area, 19 x 14.5 cm., board mounted, circa. 1865-1875. * 3. A charming and terrific image, shows a large number of men and women on horse carriages, with very tall wheels. The people are very dressed up in Victorian clothes, Some of the carriages are drawn by two horse. Board mounted, 26 x 18.5 cm., circa 1890. In the background, the spire of Holy Trinity Cathedral Church can be seen. * 4. The newly remolded Grandstand is at the right and the Racecourse to the left, in this case the protective fence has been doubled to protect spectators from horses jumping the fence. The scene is void of people. The Grandstand has been about doubled in size, board mounted, 25.5 x 21.5 cm., circa 1890. * 5. The newly remodeled Grandstand is at the left, the wind blows through the flag on the top of the Grandstand showing a rider and a horse. The Racetrack is at the right, and just before it is a hastily constructed wooden platform to compensate spectators so they can better see the horse race since the old fence was heightened to provide more human protection. There many people, mostly couples in elaborate Victorian dress, with two spectators on the roof. 27 x 20.5 cm., circa 1890. Note, this photograph was probably developed on a hot day, there is evidence of mismatch of developing chemicals in the tiny white spots on the image, which were from bubbles in the developing fluid, this is common when the temperature goes too high. There is also a minor bit of paper deformity in the upper right corner area, but this does not detract greatly from the image, simple pressing should remedy this. Else a nice image. * SEE THE SCANS: Please visit our website for good scans of each photo. **** REFERENCE: Victorian women's clothing: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=victorian%20women's%20c lothing&psj=1&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_qf.&bvm=bv.42452523,d. cGE&biw=1024&bih=607&wrapid=tlif136087066165610&um=1&ie=UTF- 8&tbm=isch&source=og&sa=N&tab=wi&ei=Dj0dUe3YOoa5igLXwIGYBw * Allbumen type photograph http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Albumen_print * Shanghai Racecourse: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shanghai_Race_Club * Color scans can be sent by email.

        Introduction à l'étude de la médecine expérimentale

      1865 - 400 pages Paris, J.B. Baillière [imprimerie de E. Martinet], 1865, in-8, 400 pages, demi-toile verte postérieure, Première édition, second tirage, issu de l'imprimerie de E. Martinet (mention au verso du faux-titre et en pied de la page 400). Ouvrage fondamental dans lequel Claude Bernard met au point les grandes règles de la méthode expérimentale appliquées à la médecine. Il a été conçu comme "un simple préliminaire d'un grand ouvrage jamais achevé. Concis et d'une clarté lumineuse, associant une aventure personnelle aux grandes questions philosophiques et scientifiques, ce livre marque un tournant dans l’histoire des sciences". Bergson décrit la Médecine expérimentale comme le "discours de la méthode" du XIXe siècle. "Here Bernard presented his own personal analysis of scientific method in a manner which earned him commendation from the philosophers of science: he was an ardent but by no means an uncritical devotee of experiment, while remaining keenly appreciative of the role of hypothesis" (Printing and the Mind of Man).

        Attacking the Mail, Bushranging N. S. W. 1864

      Melbourne: Hamel & Ferguson, 1865. Colour printed. Printed on thick wove paper. In excellent condition. A fascinating print depicting highway robbery in Australia. This dramatic confrontation comes from S. T. Gill's illustrations of life in mid-19th century Australia: "The Australian Sketchbook." It shows most probably the Ben Hall gang, consisting of Hall, John Gilbert and John Dunn, "bushrangers" who preyed on travelers journeying on the one road between Melbourne and Sydney. Ben Hall (1837-1865) ran a profitable and efficient operation, using stolen race horses (they can be seen on the hill in the background) and superior weaponry. Like many a well-known criminal, he was betrayed for the reward money and ambushed; and like many other infamous outlaws, his funeral was very well attended.

        GENERAL LEE'S / FAREWELL ADDRESS / TO THE ARMY OF NORTHERN VIRGINA. / HEADQUARTERS ARMY NORTHERN VIRGINIA / APRIL 10th, 1865. [followed by two short paragraphs of text]

      np nd, NP - Single sheet, 14 1/2 x 10 in. Woodcut portrait of General Lee dressed in a suit and tie, a 3/4 profile, occupies the upper half of the broadside. "[Signed] R.E. Lee, General." The whole enclosed in a decorative border. Some darkening and chipping to edges, expertly repaired and lined with Japanese paper. The farewell address, also known as General Order No. 9 begins: "After four years of arduous service, marked by unsurpassed courage and fortitude, the Army of Northern Virginia has been compelled to yield to overwhelming numbers and resources." It marks the end of the Civil War, by which, according to the terms of the agreement, Lee's officers and men could "return to their homes, and remain there until exchanged." The portrait printed on this copy is identical to the one printed on the broadside issued by Ege's Printers, Petersburg, Virginia in 1865, though the type setting differs [copy held at the Library of Virginia].

        HISTORICAL OUTLINE OF LOWER CALIFORNIA

      New York, 1865. Modern mottled leather, gilt. Extremities rubbed. Bookplate on front pastedown. Minor soiling. Very good. A scarce work on Baja California. "Jacob Primer Leese was a Santa Fe trader who settled in San Francisco in 1836 and engaged in the hide and tallow trade with Yankee ships. He married a sister of General Vallejo and became very wealthy. In 1863, Leese and other promoters founded the Mexican Mining and Colonization Company and obtained a land grant from the Mexican government of some 46,800 square miles between the 24th and 31st parallels of latitude in Baja California. They failed to meet their obligations, however, and the grant was transferred to another party in 1866. This outline was written 'in the interest of the Mexican Mining and Colonization Company.' In addition to details on the grant, it provides material on the discovery, early settlements, missions, minerals, and pearl fisheries of Baja California" - Hill.

        Conférences pour l'Internat des hôpitaux de Paris

      1865 - titre, [1] f. blanc, [2]-572 , 1865, in-4, titre, [1] f. blanc, [2]-572 pages manuscrites numérotées à la main, suivies de plusieurs feuillets blancs et [11] feuillets d'index in fine, demi-chagrin vert, dos à faux nerfs et orné, Intéressant manuscrit qui apporte de nouvelles informations sur la carrière du médecin et chef du service photographique de l'hôpital Saint-Louis, Arthur de Montméja. Il s'agit des notes, remises au propre, rédigées à la suite des 25 conférences (sur les os, les articulations, les muqueuses, la sphère ORL, les régions maxillaires, l'estomac et les intestins, le foie, etc.) auxquelles Arthur de Montméja assista dans l'année 1865 en vue de passer son Internat. Plusieurs feuillets numérotés sont demeurés vierges : sans doute en raison de retard ou d'absence de l'élève à plusieurs moments des conférences. Un feuillet a été découpé à la suite du titre de la 1re conférence. La carrière de Montméja est étonnamment mal connue. Elle fut pourtant brillante. Nous savions jusque là qu'il avait été interne provisoire à l'hôpital Saint-Louis et, grâce à ce manuscrit, nous savons également qu'il tentait de devenir interne des hôpitaux de Paris. Il devient docteur en médecine en 1871, avec une thèse consacrée à la cataracte et, selon certaines indications, il fut chef de clinique ophtalmologique (on notera qu'à Paris la clinique ophtalmologique ne fut créée qu'en 1878). Montméja s'illustra particulièrement dans un domaine auquel il ne se destinait pas encore avant de devenir interne et d'avoir pour professeur l'éminent dermatologue Alfred Hardy : la photographie médicale. Il collabora en effet à la célèbre Clinique photographique de l'hôpital Saint-Louis (1868) en dirigeant l'atelier où furent réalisés les premiers clichés illustrant des pathologies de la peau. A la suite de ce travail, il publia, avec Jules Rengade et Désiré-Magloire Bourneville, la Revue photographique des hôpitaux de Paris (1869-1872), célèbre pour ses clichés représentant les maux et les pathologies du corps humain les plus rares et les plus spectaculaires. Propriétaire du château de Rouffilac à Carlux en Dordogne, Montméja décéda en 1910. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Juive d'Alger

      Paris: Published by A. Cadart et Luquet, 79, rue de Richelieu, 1865. Etching. Printed on watermarked aqua-fortistes laid paper. State i/iii, before letters with artist's name and date engraved in the upper left corner of plate. Monogram in upper right corner of plate. Full sheet in excellent condition. Image size: 7 7/8 x 6 1/6inches. This stunning image is a rich proof impression of Delacroix's famous print, "Juive d'Alger." In early 1832 Delacroix visited North Africa. He accompanied his friend the Count de Mornay on his good-will mission to the Sultan of Morocco, Abd-er-Rahman II. This experience had a drastic influence on his art, introducing an edge of brilliant realism into his majestic paintings and bold engravings. He filled countless sketchbooks with drawings and observations of Arab life and gathered a wealth of ideas that served him for the rest of his life. This sumptuous etching is inspired by Delacroix's travels in North Africa, and is considered one of his greatest prints. Assigned to the delegation as dragoman was Abraham-Ben-Chimol of Tangiers, a Jew who introduced Delacroix to his wife and daughter. Delacroix was greatly influenced by this encounter and he did a number of images depicting young Jewish women in simple interiors. This breathtaking image depicts a young Jewish woman in traditional dress, seated in a simple room; she is accompanied by an Algerian woman who is seated on the floor beside her. The leader of the French Romantic movement, Delacroix is widely considered to be one of the greatest French painters in history, but he is also one the most hailed printmakers of the modern age. The simple lines and bold textures of this monumental print delineate Delacroix's genius, and distinguish him as a true master of his art. This is an exceptional early impression of this important print, executed before the published title and publication details were added. Included in one of the first collections of the Society de Aqua-Fortistes publications by Cadart, this print is extremely rare in this early state. With its rich dark tones and fresh details, this is a magnificent example of Delacroix's work and a true collectors item. Between 1862 and 1866 the Societe des Aqua-Fortistes produced a five-volume collection of artists' etchings entitled "Euax-Fortes Modernes." Printed on laid paper made especially for the series, this outstanding collection is one of the seminal publications to spring out of the etching revival in France. The Societe des Aqua-Fortistes was the French equivalent of the Etching Club in England and similarly it aimed to produce a collection of high quality etchings by the leading artists of the period. Like the Etching Club, the Societe des Aqua-Fortistes sought to raise the prestige of the medium from a reproductive technique to a fine art. Although the etching revival began somewhat earlier in England, the French movement exerted a far greater influence on the medium, and included a wider range of prominent artists. The Barbizon painters were among the earliest French artists to participate in the etching revival, and their superb prints helped raise the medium to new heights of genius. This unique publication, which included works by Manet, Corot, and Delacroix, is an outstanding example of fine art printing at its best Delteil, Le Peintre-Gravure Illustre , vol. III, no. 18, i/iii; Beraldi, Les Gravures du XIXe Siecle, Guide de l'Amateur d'Estampes Modernes , vol. V, p. 158, i/ii.

      1865 - de (4), 40 pages et 36 pages Paris, Michel Levy, 1865, in-12, de (4), 40 pages et 36 pages de catalogue Lévy de Décembre 1864, maroquin rouge, dos lisse et orné, double filet d'encadrement à froid sur les plats, coupes et coiffes guillochées, tête dorée, triple filet doré et fleurons angulaires en bordure des contreplats, couvertures et dos conservés [Gruel], Première édition, rare, de l'un des premiers textes littéraires français à utiliser comme ressort dramatique, et ici comique, le personnage du photographe et l’appareillage technique et scientifique que suppose, à l'époque, l'art photographique. 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. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Archive of Over Fifty Documents Relating to the Final Days of the British Schooner "Lima"].

      1865 - 1865. About 50 documents in about 75 pages. The documents in the archive are generally in very good condition, however the auction broadsides printed on poor paper though still readable have many chips and are in poor condition. In October 1865, the 110 ton British merchant schooner "Lima" encountered heavy weather en route from New York and put into St. Thomas in the West Indies in a damaged condition. Ultimately the cargo was removed and sold, and the ship was condemned and the hull and fittings sold at auction for $764.14. This archive documents the schooner's final days. It includes shipping manifests of the last cargo, surveys, an instrument of protest, pertinent invoices and bills, insurance forms, correspondence regarding the incident, shipping articles, crew list, and two auction broadsides for the sale of the hulk and fittings. Overall an interesting and unusual archive documenting mid 19th century commercial shipping in the Caribbean.
