        HYPERION: A ROMANCE. ILLUSTRATED WITH TWENTY-FOUR PHOTOGRAPHS OF THE RHINE, SWITZERLAND, AND THE TYROL BY FRANCIS FRITH

      London: Alfred William Bennett, 1865. Quarto. 20th-century three-quarter green morocco and cloth by Root & Son, a.e.g. Front hinge cleanly separated. All of the photographs in excellent condition. Very good. The first American literary volume illustrated with original photographs. The twenty-four beautiful photographs by Francis Frith are scenes captured during Frith's travels in Switzerland and elsewhere in Europe. Includes a preface by Frith. "The book is notable for its direct association of landscape photographs as non- literal visual equivalents of literary ideas" - TRUTHFUL LENS. "...HYPERION was a touristic narrative. Set in the early nineteenth century, the story's trajectory follows the course of the Rhine, with stops at tourist sites. The year before this edition was published, Frith had traveled the Rhine, and from those travels had produced THE GOSSIPING PHOTOGRAPHER ON THE RHINE. It is possible to imagine him picking up a copy of HYPERION on those travels, much like the clientele of Tauchnitz, or simply bringing it along to guide his perambulations and then deciding that it was a good idea to illustrate it himself. In any case, the photographs that resulted from this trip found their way into HYPERION...Thus Frith was not only the consumer but also the producer of the illustrated novel, and performed both the functions of the reader tracing the protagonist's journey and of the photographer confirming the fact of the journey through photographs" - Armstrong. See Carol Armstrong's book for an exhaustive scholarly treatment of the relationship between Frith's photography and Longfellow's text. TRUTHFUL LENS 106. Armstrong, SCENES IN A LIBRARY (1998), pp.284, 332-42, and passim.

        [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. Octavo. 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.

        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

      Unknown Publisher, Possibly Jersey City 1865 - 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 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. It measures 6.5" x 8.5", however 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. 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. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

      Arnauld de Vresse 1865-1870 - 5 Bände mit jeweils 10 Alben à 16 S., außer Band 3: 8 Alben à 16 S. und 4 Alben à 8 S., insgesamt also 52 Alben. 245x182 mm. ?Der fiktive Titel unserer Bände, "Charges", läßt sich mit "Zerrbilder" oder "Karikaturen" übersetzen. Die Alben bestehen jeweils aus illustriertem Titelblatt und 15 Seiten mit 60 Holzstichen nach Zeichnungen von Cham. 4 Alben sind in Lithographie ausgeführt (ill. Titel + 7 S. mit einer variierenden Anzahl von Bildern, etwas knapp beschnitten mit kleinen Bildverlusten), 2 sind in 2. Ausgabe, von Martinet herausgegeben, und 3 wurden von Michel Lévy Frères verlegt (diese sind von 1867-1868 datiert). 3 tragen auf dem Titel einen Kolportagestempel des Départements Seine, im Gebrauch von 1861 bis 1870. Insgesamt umfassen unsere Sammelbände über 3000 Zeichnungen des unglaublich produktiven Humoristen (1818 - 1879). Cham war seit 1843 Mitarbeiter des Charivari, seine Bildchen im Stil Daumiers beschäftigen sich vielfach mit der Aktualität (Wagnerkult der Bayern, das machthungrige Preussen, die jährliche Malereiausstellung [Salon] usw.) und den Verschrobenheiten von arm und reich. Von ihm wurde behauptet, er sei der Offenbach der Karikatur. Detail der Bände auf Anfrage. Kanten berieben, gelegentliche Risse in Innengelenken, innen z.T. stock- und wasserfleckig, 8 S. mit Kolorierungsversuchen eines Kindes. ENGLISH SUMMARY: 5 volumes, each with 10 albums of 16 pp., vol. 3 excepted: 8 albums of 16 pp. and 3 albums of 8 pp. On the whole thus 52 albums. The fictive title of the volumes, "Charges", can be translated by "caricatures". Each album has an illustrated title and 15 pages with 60 wood engravings after drawings by Cham. 4 albums were printed in lithography (ill. title + 7 pp. with a varying number of pictures, somewhat trimmed with small losses of printed surface), 2 are in second edition, published by Martinet, and 3 have been issued by Michel Lévy Frères (these are dated from 1867-1868). 3 show a colportage stamp of the Seine department, in use between 1861 and 1870, on the title. Our anthology contains on the whole over 3000 drawings by the incredibly productive humorist (1818 - 1879). Cham was a contributor to the Charivari since 1843, his pictures in the style of Daumier often deal with actuality (Wagner cult of the Bavarians, the power-hungry Prussia, the annual exhibition of paintings [Salon] etc.) and with the eccentricities of rich and poor. He was said to be the Offenbach of caricature. Uniform leather-backed boards, title in gilt on spine (J. Martiny). Edges rubbed, occasional splits in joints, some albums damp- and waterstained, 8 pp. with coloring experiments by a child. Details of the volumes on request. Einheitliche Halblederbände mit Titel in Gold auf dem Rücken (J. Martiny). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

For the next three months they fought in difficult campaigns on the Texas coast before returning to New Orleans in late February, 1864. They then returned to hard campaigning in western Louisiana until they had completed their three year enlistment terms in late September, 1864. Also included are lists of the officers, privates, transfers, discharges, and deaths of the regiment, from Companies A through K. SABIN 43588. EBERSTADT 167-113. DORNBUSH, WISCONSIN 110.

        TWENTY-FIVE MANUSCRIPT LETTERS FROM JOHN TAYLOR WOOD TO HIS WIFE, LOLA, AND HIS MOTHER FROM 1863 - 1865].

      ]Richmond, Augusta, and other locations. 1863-1865]. - Twenty-five letters, one to two pages apiece, plus transcripts. Old fold lines, occasional toning. Very good. A collection of twenty-five letters from Confederate naval officer John Taylor Wood to his wife, Lola, and his mother, from 1863-65. Wood, grandson of former president Zachary Taylor, was named aide-de-camp with the rank of colonel of cavalry to his uncle, Confederate President Jefferson Davis. One of his first missions in his new role was to travel to the South's major ports and inspect the coastline defenses. Upon his return he would report back to the president. One of his first stops was in Wilmington, North Carolina, examining the port city, arguably one of the most important bases for running the Union blockade. Throughout his letters to Lola he describes scenes of quiet tension and impending attacks. "Feb. 14th 1863 . I spent yesterday with Genl Whiting visiting the Forts at the mouth of the River. Generally they were in good order, but some things require rectifying. Six of the Yankee Blockaders were in sight, two of them very close, not more than two miles. For some time an attack has been expected here, but just now it is quiet, the enemy having passed down the Coast to Charleston." In Vicksburg, Mississippi several weeks later: "Across this River the Yankee Fleet can be seen as well as their camps, covering the country for miles, but they are doing nothing as far as we can see, but working on their canal, by which they hope to get down the river without passing this City. This place is almost entirely deserted except by the military, the effects of the bombardment can be seen everywhere. . . . the town was under fire for two months, it is astonishing that it did not suffer more." As Wood travelled through the South's ports he discusses the victories and defeats of the Confederacy, including his own involvement in the Chesapeake Expedition, which saw the successful raid of two Union gunboats off the coast of Virginia. Though most of Wood's letters are addressed to his wife, two later letters, dated 1865, are written to his mother. Wood and his brother, also a Confederate soldier, became estranged from their parents at the outbreak of the Civil War. Their father served in the U.S. Army for nearly forty years and remained loyal to the Union side. Though the family was divided Wood seems to genuinely hope for reconciliation and for his mother to understand his views: "I wish I could write unreservedly & fully. I feel assured I could correct many of your views & change your impressions. My faith is unshaken in our final success in it. At the commencement, grievous reverses we have had . . . But they are useful in improving & disciplining the people, in rendering our situation more complete, our nationality more assured. The war may last years to come . . . but the result will be the same, our Independence. Not even slavery will be allowed to stand in the way . . . I pray earnestly . . . for peace that as a family we may be again united." A rich compilation of letters, written in the heart of the conflict, offering insight into the battles and strategies of the Confederacy.

In Vicksburg, Mississippi several weeks later: "Across this River the Yankee Fleet can be seen as well as their camps, covering the country for miles, but they are doing nothing as far as we can see, but working on their canal, by which they hope to get down the river without passing this City. This place is almost entirely deserted except by the military, the effects of the bombardment can be seen everywhere. . . . the town was under fire for two months, it is astonishing that it did not suffer more." As Wood travelled through the South's ports he discusses the victories and defeats of the Confederacy, including his own involvement in the Chesapeake Expedition, which saw the successful raid of two Union gunboats off the coast of Virginia. Though most of Wood's letters are addressed to his wife, two later letters, dated 1865, are written to his mother. Wood and his brother, also a Confederate soldier, became estranged from their parents at the outbreak of the Civil War. Their father served in the U.S. Army for nearly forty years and remained loyal to the Union side. Though the family was divided Wood seems to genuinely hope for reconciliation and for his mother to understand his views: "I wish I could write unreservedly & fully. I feel assured I could correct many of your views & change your impressions. My faith is unshaken in our final success in it. At the commencement, grievous reverses we have had . . . But they are useful in improving & disciplining the people, in rendering our situation more complete, our nationality more assured. The war may last years to come . . . but the result will be the same, our Independence. Not even slavery will be allowed to stand in the way . . . I pray earnestly . . . for peace that as a family we may be again united." A rich compilation of letters, written in the heart of the conflict, offering insight into the battles and strategies of the Confederacy.

        [EXTENSIVE LETTER ARCHIVE FROM UNION SERGEANT SAMUEL COTTER KIRKPATRICK OF THE 11th WISCONSIN VOLUNTEER INFANTRY, TO VARIOUS FAMILY MEMBERS, 1861 - 1865]

      [Wisconsin, Missouri, Arkansas, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, and Alabama, 1865. Some dampstaining and minor chipping, a couple archival tape repairs, with a handful of tears and paper loss affecting some lines of text, but most letters in good to very good condition. An outstanding Civil War letter group from a twice- wounded Wisconsin soldier who experienced much of the Civil War on the western side of the Mississippi River. Samuel Cotter Kirkpatrick, the oldest of six children of James Gilliam and Caroline Newman Kirkpatrick, was born and died in Grant County, Wisconsin. On Sept. 11, 1861, the nineteen-year-old Kirkpatrick enrolled in the 11th Regiment, Wisconsin Volunteer Infantry at Mineral Point, Wisconsin. He was discharged at Indianola, Texas, on Feb. 13, 1864, having attained the rank of sergeant. That same day Kirkpatrick re-enlisted and served until Sept. 4, 1865, when he was discharged at Mobile, Al. He suffered two wounds during the war: the first in the left ear at Port Gibson, Ms., about May 1, 1863, the second in the left breast by shrapnel at Big Black River, Ms., on May 17, 1863. Kirkpatrick married Caroline Mary Ritchey on April 4, 1864 and together they had five children. The 11th Wisconsin served west of the Mississippi in Arkansas, Louisiana, and Texas. The regiment served in Arkansas from March 1862 to March 1863, took part in the Vicksburg campaigns during the spring and summer, and then in Louisiana in the fall. In late November 1863 the regiment was transported by steamship to Point Isabel, Texas. For the next three months they fought in difficult campaigns on the Texas coast before returning to New Orleans in late February 1864. They then returned to hard campaigning in western Louisiana until they had completed their three year enlistment terms in late September 1864. Kirkpatrick had completed his full three- year term earlier that year. Kirkpatrick wrote many letters over the course of his time in the service to family members in Grant County, Wisconsin, describing his life as a soldier, his health, descriptions of the various locations of his camp, and military news. His letters date from Sept. 30, 1861 to July 17, 1865. Several excerpts are presented below, and represent only a small percentage of the excellent content contained in this extensive archive. In the first letter, dated Sept. 30, 1861, Kirkpatrick writes to a cousin from Camp Cairo [Defiance?], Illinois, exhibiting the bravado of a young soldier lacking experience in battle: "There is a bout five thousand soldiers hear now. Up the Ohio River about forty miles, there is twenty thousand more and acrost the river there is four thousand more and down the mississippi at norfork there is eight thousand more. We defy old jeff davis to come up hear and we will give him hell." A few months later on Dec. 11, 1861, Kirkpatrick writes from Camp Curtis in Sulphur Springs, Mo., in part: "I was corporal of the guard last night at 10 o'clock the picket guard was fired upon. One of them came in to camp and gave the alarm. The adjutant...gave the captains the...order for the men to fall in with musket, arm[s] and equipment. The boys fell in very quick, but some of them was scared so bad.... It was a false alarm. The cavalry [had] been out on a scout and fired on the pickets for fun. There is 300 cavalry from Wis., Milw. here now and Larabee [?] is with them. He is in our tent now...he had been in the service 4 months. He is the same old Laraby. 3 of our companies has gone 60 miles down the river to the Burnt Bridge. I was down to the banks of the river and I saw lots of the boys in swimming. That was the 7 of this month...we rip around here in our shirt sleeves. There was a squad of us went out three or four miles...we saw sum purty rough co[untry] and sum ruff gals...things was sober here last Sunday. The flag hung at half mast all day. One of our boys died on Saturday night. He was one of the Mineral Point boys. His name was Mike Bender. We buried him about three hundred yards from the camp...." The 11th Wisconsin soon found themselves facing Confederate marauders. In a four-page letter dated Jan. 11, 1862, Kirkpatrick reports: "We left Sulpher Springs the 10[th] for Victoria 20 miles down the river it is 25 miles back of the river further west. There is only 2 companies left in Camp Curtis...the Eight Regiment is all at Sulpher Springs. They are going on a march...northwest to guard the bridges. Capt. [Jesse] Miller and his company is here with us and the rest of the regiment is along the road to watch bridges. Victoria is a very nice place. It is on the railroad. The cars run from St. Louis to Pilot Knob every day and they make it a very lively little place. Victoria is the nicest place that I see[n] in Mo. I was down the railroad to a bridge with 3 men...a big red fox crossed the creek which frightened us.... We have 3 of Jeff Tomsons [Thompson's] men in our camp...that Capt. Miller has taken. They have taken the oath and have to report themselves here ever Saturday. They was here today. One of them is a boy 18 years old. It looks hard to see them. They are about skeered to death. One of them had his father with him. They said they was forced in it. They was told that they would get 24 dollars a month but they did not get anything not even their clothes. They say that Jeff Thompson's army is more like indians than anything else. One day there will be a lot of them together and the next they will be disbanded.... We had a Devel of a time yesterday. Our first lieutenant and orderly sergeant went out to a little town to get one of their boats mended and...they was surrounded. They drew out their revolvers and told them to stand off. They kept backing off and soon fell back to a bridge where some of our men was and then they was safe they came into camp and gave the alarm. We sent out 20 men. They went back to the town under the command of the first lieutenant. We marched up to the saloon and [they] began to run out and we sirkled out around town and commanded halt which they did. We took 4 horses and seven men and the rest got away. One horse that we took is supposed to be a captain's horse. He is a fine dark iron gray. The rest are scrub horses. It is supposed that there was about 30 of them...." " The 11th Wisconsin settles in Missouri, and two months later, Kirkpatrick sends news regarding mid-term elections: "[March 2, 1862]...it is lection day tomorrow down here and we started 20 men out this morning abbot 20 miles from the camp. They are to see that every man takes the oath before he comes to the poles to vote. There is another squad and the orderly sergeant going out to a little town called Hillsbur [Hillsboro], the county seat tomorrow...there was 30 of our men went down the road last thursday to relieve some of the Illinois troops. It is 20 miles from this place is called Politte [Potosi]. There is three blockhouses to build where they are and it is impossible for 30 men to go all that work and stand guard...the major [Arthur Platt] thinks that the rest of our Co. had better go down there...so after we all get back from the elction we will go.... Col. Carland at Pilot Knob is getting up a brigade. We thought that we would be put in that brigade...tuesday I seen the most mules that I ever seen. They passed a going to the Knob. There 40 cars and 18 mules in a car. They was a splendid lot of mules. Yesterday there was fifteen h[un]dred cavalrymen and horses...they are a going to join Col. Carland's Brigade. This brigade is going out into Arkansas after Old [Sterling] Price...." In an Aug. 17, 1862 letter to his father, Kirkpatrick wrote from camp in Old Town, Ar., sending news about his regiment and describing the presence of escaped slaves following his regiment and seeking work: "7 Co. out of [our] Regiment and sum of the 33 Ill. Reg gone down the river with the fleet of gunboats. Our troops is in Little Rock at last and the report is that General Hindman is a coming down White River to get Vicksburg...as our men got in 15 miles of Little Rock the rebels left and...the boats left this morning with 5 days rations. Simple Scrogen [James Simple Scoggin] died nite before last and was buried yesterday morning. He had the brain fever and was a getting along very well...we was very sorry to lose him for he has proved to be a good soldier and a good boy. We have a darkey to do all fatigue duty such as cooking, loading the wagons and cutting new roads...the negroes has meeting every Sunday. Oh Lord how they dress nice with white silk stockings. [If] one see[n] the legs of them [they] would think it was somebody. Oh golly how they strut. The officers don't let any stay in camp without [being] employed. Some of them comes to the general and swear that they have worked on fortifications that beaver seen a fortification." Still stationed in Old Town, Ar., he writes on Sept. 11, 1862: "We have been down the river on another cotton expedition to Laconia it is on the Arkansas side there was 7 Cos out of our Reg and 6 of the 33 Ill Reg. We went down on the Emma and the 33 went on the Starr. Our Co. and Co. K took the hurricane deck...we found 3 acres of watermelon 2 Cos. of cavalry found them and the officers put a guard over them the Captain of the Cavalry came to Col. Hoag and told...it was impossible to keep the boys out of the patch. The Col. went and seen the man that owned the melons and the Col. told him to let the boys have the melons and he would guard his property...we was here thursday a hunting cotton. They had burned the most of it. We only got about 100 bales...we was at several splendid plantations. One in particular it was a very large plantation and splendid buildings and about 200 blacks. The yard was most like the yard around the academy in Plattsville.... things look very dark on our side...[referring to the Antietam campaign] if the rebels gets into Washington it will make Old Abe prick up his ears...the report is that they have had another fite at Bull Run and licked us a very bloody battle. A great many lives lost...there was 4 boats went down... loaded with prisoners for Vicksburg to be exchanged. As they passed they hollered for Bull Run No. 2 and for Jeff Tomson..." In a letter dated Sept. 24, 1862, Kirkpatrick describes a skirmish in which two contrabands are killed: "Camped in 6 miles of Helena, Ark...we have moved our camp again it is a flat country on the bank of the river in an old field.... Six Cos of the 33 Ill. Reg was down the river after cotton. They did not come out so well...as they was coming back the rebels got a battery planted back of the levy and as our boat came up they fired into her several times and would have captured our boat if it had not been for a Ram that was ahead. It heard the firing and came back. We fired into them several times...we must have killed several as...our men [that] could see them thought there was about 2500. They outnumbered us...our loss was 2 men out of the battery and 4 men out of the 33 Ill and 2 negroes.... [T]he fleet is just returning from Vicksburg...Old McClellan's clan was giving the rebels gas in Vir...got a letter from A. F. Niles and he wrote that he was afraid of being drafted...such men as that helped bring on this war and now they are the last to take hold and help squash it. We are under marching orders...we are ordered to Memphis...." By 1863, Kirkpatrick's confidence in Union victory had dimmed considerably. He writes a long letter describing foraging campaigns, an ambush, and an amputation: "Camp on the Current River, Mo., Jan. 1, 1863.... General Daverson [Union Brig. Gen. John Wynn Davidson] came here and when he came into camp we fired a general's salute.... [W]e have the pontoon bridge laid across the river...and we send out a train everyday a foraging.... [L]ast Sabbath we started out to forage from the 11th and 33 Ill. under command of Lieutenant [Eli H.] Mix of our Reg and the other in command of Lieutenant [Spencer P.] Wright of the 24 Mo. Reg. They went out from the river some 9 miles. Mix got his train loaded and started for camp. There was not corn enough in that field to load both trains. There was another field close by so Lieutenant Wright took the remainder intu the other field and Mix went to camp. He had not gone very far when he heard considerable firing...he sent into camp for reinforcements which was sent out on the double quick...our Co had to go and Co. G...and 2 companies out of the 33 Ill...and one Co. of the first Wisconsin and 2 parts...of 13 Ill. Cavalry...the Secesh had out numbered them and taken them all prisoners, Lieutenant Wright and 21 privates and 7 wagons and all the teamsters...the cavalry pressed them and when they got up to them the rebels was too strong for our men. They numbered between 8 and 9 hundred so they got away with all when the scrimage tuck place. We found 2 men dead of the rebels and they wounded 4 of our men, one so bad that they had to take his leg off. I seen the doctor take it off. It looked pretty rough. We went to camp for an ambulance to haul the wounded...we got started at 8 o'clock. It was pretty dark and a awful road, lots of streams...we got into camp at 11...there is 9 thousand rebels at Pokahontas...the rebels is three times as thick now as they was when we went through heer last spring...our force is as follows. The 11 Wis. and the 33 Ill and 8 Indiana...18 and the 24 and several other regiments enough to make eight regiments of infantry and we have part of the first Wis. Cavalry and 13 Ill Cavalry...we have four batteries. The largest piece of cannon is a 18 pounder.... [W]e do not let citizens in camp without particular business and then they are blindfolded and taken to head quarters and taken out the same way...this war is not turned out as I thought.... I believe that the Southern Confederacy will be established before 2 years...we never hear the Union mentioned now days...the minds of the private soldier is changed considerable in the last six months...." Kirkpatrick's mood begins to brighten while in Vicksburg: "This is a beautiful morning and the old canon is roaring as usual. We haint took Vitsburg yet and I cant tell how long it will take but we are bound to have it. We can hold the works that we have got and in three months they will be out of grub from ther owns mens tales that have deserted and come over in our lines.... It is a beautiful site to knite to see the mortar boats a shelling the town." His mood had improved immensely by July 5, 1863, when he wrote from a camp outside Vicksburg and informed his parents of the fall of city: "I sit down this fine afternoon to let you now that I am alive and the best of all to let you know that Vicksburg is ours. The morning of the third at 8 oclock in the morning the Rebels came over to our lines with a flag of Truce and wanted to make a compromise but Grant said no. I will have it in a few days without so he sent the flag back and comenced firing again and at 3 oclock it came out again and the firing was stopped all along the line and we did not know what was up but we thought they had surrended but did not know it till next morning at 8 oclock and therr was a white flag run up over the fort.... Dear parents it would do you good to hear us cheer. It was the best feeling fourth to me that I ever injoyed." After Vicksburg, Kirkpatrick spends about three months in Texas, at Point Isabel, Matagorda Bay, and Indianola. His first letter from Texas, on Dec. 2, 1863, describes his landing at Point Isabel, and the environment in Texas, including easy access to livestock. It reads, in part: "There was only 4 companys of our Reg that got off the Scott out to the Banks...the rest of our command went to Corpas Cristia [Corpus Christi] 100 miles from here. The military Governor of Texas was on bord with us...he is a brigadier general...his name is General Hamilton.... We are close to the mouth of the Rio grand. We can see the french fleet from here. There is lots of Mexicans comes in ever day with coten...there is getting quite a pile of it here.... We are living fine now. We went out and killed 2 small beefs. Beef is splendid this time a year. The report came yesterday that the balance of our Detachment has taken several pieces of artillery and several hundred prisners. I hope it is so." A week later, Kirkpatrick describes a skirmish with the Confederates: "The first Brigade in our Division had a little brush here with the Rebels. They had a splendid fort here. It mounted 7 large size guns. It is a splendid fort and would bin hard to taken if the rebels had stood but they fell back to Corpes Cristia [Corpus Christi] that is about 30 miles from here but I dont think they will make mutch of a stand short of Galveston. That is about one hundred and 30 miles from here and we cant move soon for the want of transportation." In Indianola in February 1864, and perhaps anticipating his discharge on the 13th of that month, Kirkpatrick writes about his life as a soldier, and about continuing in the military: "The way I look at it, it is as good a thing as a single man can do. I think that I will try it. I have always had my health good and I can make more money a-soldiering and easery [easier] than i can any where else. I can get 17 dolars a month and bord and clothes and $400 and 2 dolars bounty. That is purty good.... And another thing I dont think that the war will last three more years. And as for soldiering in time of peace that is good enough for me. But there is a great deal of hardships that a soldier has to endure and a great deal of danger. But he must run his chance. I have bin in 7 fights and it is true that I had a slight wound but I was lucky.... Our men is busy fortifing Powderhorn building forts and diging rifle pits. I dont think there will be a moove made here for some time proba[bly] next month. We can see rebels ever day out on the Prairie." He spends most of 1864 in Louisiana, variously at Carrollton, Tigerville, Brashier City, and Bayou Ramus. He reports on the Atlanta campaign in a letter from Aug. 7, 1864: "I would like if the war was over. They seem to sold out to the last in the East. It seems that General Sherman had an awful fite at Atlanta. Our loss was heavy but the enemy greater." Kirkpatrick spends 1865 in Alabama, mostly near Montgomery, where he writes his last letter on July 17. In addition to Kirkpatrick's letters, present in the archive is a CDV of the young soldier, with a pencil notation on the verso reading, "Uncle Samuel Cotter Kirkpatrick," a document mustering him into the 11th Wisconsin as a first corporal, and also a handwritten list of officers, from captain down to eighth corporal, of "Tanner's Guards" (nickname for the 11th Wisconsin), that appears to be in Kirkpatrick's hand. He lists himself, of course, as first corporal. Accompanying Kirkpatrick's war-dated letters are about ninety later letters from various correspondents to certain members of the Kirkpatrick family, seemingly unrelated to Samuel. A monumental collection of correspondence for study of the Trans-Mississippi West during the Civil War.

        [MAGNIFICENT COLLECTION OF 524 CONTEMPORARY PRO-UNION CIVIL WAR SONG SHEETS, WITH 217 PATRIOTIC POSTAL COVERS AND FOURTEEN SHEETS OF PRINTED PATRIOTIC LETTERHEAD]

      [Mostly New York or Philadelphia, 1865. Uniformly neatly mounted and bound in folio three-quarter brown morocco and cloth albums, gilt. Light toning and foxing to a few images; mostly fine or near fine. A beautiful set, magnificently presented. An unprecedented and meticulously-assembled collection of original Civil War-era song sheets (also referred to as lyric sheets or slip ballads). Volume one contains 187 song sheets (with forty-seven handcolored or printed in color); forty-eight patriotic covers (most colored); one colored portrait of Elmer E. Ellsworth, the first Union officer of rank killed in the war; and one advertising handbill for a Jefferson Davis- related song. Notable examples include "The Battle Hymn of the Republic"; "The Star Spangled Banner"; a dozen songs mourning the death of President Lincoln; ten songs about Jefferson Davis; and over twenty-five examples of Negro-related songs, with such titles as "Bully Nigger Amos," "Darkey Conscript," "Come Back, Massa," "A Soldier in the Colored Brigade," and "The Colored Soldier Boy!" There are also several battle-specific songs (including two on Gettysburg), numerous elegiac songs (including "Soldier's Funeral," "The Soldier's Death," "The Soldier's Farewell to His Bride," and "Who Will Care for Mother Now?"), and several songs devoted to honoring the flag. Also encompasses a colored portrait of Elmer Ellsworth, plus seven song sheets devoted to him. Volumes two and three, assembled by the same hand a short time after the first volume, contain 337 song sheets in total, arranged in alphabetical order across the two volumes. Volume two contains 210 song sheets (with thirty-four either handcolored or printed in color), in alphabetical order from A to I, including well- known examples such as "Battle Cry of Freedom," "Battle- Hymn of the Republic," and "Glory Hallelujah." There are also several battle-specific songs (including Bull Run, Gettysburg, Spottsylvania, and the Battle of the Wilderness, among others), several songs honoring Union generals ("Gen. Grant's Boys," "Gen'l Sherman's Bonny Boys," etc.), numerous songs devoted to honoring the flag, eight songs about the Irish soldiers in the war, some regimental tunes, and another healthy selection of elegiac songs. Several songs are devoted to the Union view of Dixie, including "Cruelty to Our Union Prisoners While in Dixie's Sunny Land" and "Dixie, Where is Dixie?" Volume three (alphabetical from J-Z) contains 127 song sheets (with twenty-two in color), 169 patriotic postal covers (ninety-four of which are in color), fourteen blank patriotic letterhead sheets, and one 1864 handbill for a "Catalogue of Union Songs." Two more examples of "Star Spangled Banner" are found in this volume, including one in German. Two songs focus on the "Fighting 69th" regiment, the famous Irish Brigade of infantry that fought the entirety of the Civil War, from First Manassas to Appomattox Court House. A few songs mention the rebels of the Confederacy, most notably "Lee's Rebel Raid in Pennsylvania" and "Rebel, Spare That Flag" and there are three songs regarding Sherman, one titled "Sherman's March to the Sea." A few of the postal covers are quite unkind to secessionist "traitors," with a few examples showing Jefferson Davis at the gallows, in a "Union Neck Tie" or "On the Last 'Platform' of the Southern Confeder-Ass-Y." The letterhead sheets are mostly decorated with the flag and/or the American Bald Eagle, with one striking example consisting of an engraved image of John Bell, Tennessee congressman and eventual Confederate sympathizer, over-printed in red with the word, "TRAITOR." Manuscript notes on a front blank of the first volume identify the compiler of the present work as J.M. Fox. He writes in 1908 that he produced the first volume from "several hundred" Civil War songs, these being the "most metrical." He adds in a later note, from 1912, that he "added two similar volumes to this." Hence, the full three-volume compilation. "To some extent songs were expected to fill the emotional needs of people during times of tenseness: patriotic songs to march to, ballads of battles to boast of, sentimental songs to while away hours around campfires or bring tears to Victorian eyes, comic songs to fetch a laugh, bitter satirical songs to relieve feelings, and old favorites just because people liked, and still like, to sing them....Unlike sheet music designed for the singer or instrumentalist who could read the notes, song sheets were for the thousands to whom the tunes were familiar - one old tune covered a multitude of songs - but the words new....In the 1850s songs of topical interest began to appear with greater frequency, swelling into a torrent of tears, blood and battles during the Civil War, and tapering off again thereafter. It was these jingles written for a moment in time which seem most fascinating today. They tell us more of the plain people, what they were interested in, how they dressed, what their pleasures were and why they were pained. They are, in a way, a social history of the times" - Wolf. Includes several examples unrecorded in Edwin Wolf's bibliography, AMERICAN SONG SHEETS, SLIP BALLADS, AND POETICAL BROADSIDES. This deep collection of Civil War songs, certainly the largest such assemblage available in the market today, would be the cornerstone of most collections of 19th-century American music. A full list of the song titles is available upon request.

        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 .

      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.
