        A New Hampshire soldier, who personally met the President only a week before, reacts to Lincoln's assassination: "What a dark thing it was to have our President murdered I just saw him alive and that was all, in less than one week from the time I took him by the hand ..."

      City Point, Virginia, April 18, 1865. 4.75" x 6.75". "Autograph Letter Signed, ""Walter Flanders,"" 4 pages, 4.75"" x 6.75"" on U.S. Christian Commission stationery, City Point, Virginia, April 18, 1865 to his wife concerning the winding down of the war following Lee's surrender and expressing his consternation over the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, having only met the President the week before. Expected mailing folds, else fine condition. Writing from City Point, Virginia soon after the surrender of Lee at Appomattox, Flanders, a soldier from New Hampshire reacts to the news of Lincoln's assassination: ""What a dark thing it was to have our President murdered I just saw him alive and that was all, in less than one week from the time I took him by the hand he was assas[s]inated. What a wretch that done it, but I believe they will not fare so well on Johnsons rule as they would with Lincoln. I hope he will go right on with old Abrahams plan not flinch a hair. Perhaps they will give up now they have always said they never would come under Lincoln and perhaps now they will give up."" Flanders also muses on when he might be discharged and comments on the recruitment of black soldiers: ""... I have heard several ways that the 9th Corps was going to be relieved and sent to Washington and then furlowed [sic] or paroled, till they see whether they are needed any more and if not discharge them. I dont know what they want of so many men and they are enlisting them for the regular service and giving them sixty days furlow and it wont be but a short time before they will have enough. They are enlisting blacks for that service and I think that is the way to do it. As soon as Johnston surrenders I shall look for an immediate reduction of the national forces. They have stopped all volunteering and drafting and have taken steps to reduce the navy."" Walter M. Flanders enlisted in the 18th New Hampshire Infantry in September 1864. For most of its existence the regiment worked on fortifications at City Point, Virginia. However in March 1865, the regiment helped in the capture of Fort Steadman, which it manned until Confederate forces evacuated Richmond and Petersburg. He was discharged on May 30, 1865. Following the war he lived in Warren, New Hampshire. (Civil War Database)"

        THE SOUTHERN PRISONS OF THE U.S. OFFICERS

      Baltimore, 1865. Sheet size: 24 x 35 3/4. Very good. A rare lithograph showing views of several Confederate prison camps in the South, used to hold Union officers during the Civil War. The lithograph contains twelve images of at least six different Confederate camps in North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia. While Andersonville Prison in Georgia is well known as the largest and most brutal of the Confederate prison camps, this important lithograph shows the conditions and structures at several lesser known southern prisons, thereby providing valuable information. One of the two central images is a view of the crowded "Asylum Camp" in Columbia, South Carolina. The image shows a pair of two-story buildings in the background, with dozens of tents crowded into an open space in the foreground. The entire camp is surrounded by a fence. Many of the tents have their own small fireplace, and men are shown chopping wood, hanging clothing, preparing food, carrying water, and milling about the yard. There are two other images of Camp Asylum: one showing men taking wood from a large pile, the other a view of the sutler's tent at the camp, showing a large number of men proceeding into a tent to receive supplies. The other central image is of Camp Sorghum in Columbia, South Carolina. Small cabins and tents are shown in a large cleared field patrolled by armed guards. Another small view shows the hospital at the camp, with many wounded men depicted. Views of other prisons show the jail in Columbia, South Carolina; the jail and workhouse in Charleston, South Carolina (mostly tents); Camp Oglethorpe in Macon, Georgia, showing several small cabins; and rustic Camp Exchange in Charlotte, North Carolina, showing a number of armed guards patrolling a small group of tents and a crudely built two-story building. There are also views of a performance by "Chandler's String Band," mail delivery (showing scores of men crowded around a building), and an image of long lines of men passing clothing that have apparently just been delivered by a small train. Lithographer and printer Edward Sachse was located in Baltimore, and was therefore well positioned to produce views and prints for southern and northern markets before and during the Civil War. In 1862 he published a portrait of Union general Ambrose Burnside, and after the war Sachse published prints of the grave of Stonewall Jackson, and of Robert E. Lee in his study (the latter drawn by Adalbert Volck). Sachse also published views of the Virginia Military Institute, Fort McHenry, and a print of the famous clash between the Monitor and the Merrimac. This print is not included in Neely & Holzer's THE UNION IMAGE nor in their THE CONFEDERATE IMAGE, and it is not mentioned by Peters. OCLC locates only two copies this lithograph, at the Library of Michigan and at the Boston Athenaeum. Rare.

        [CONSECUTIVE RUN OF THE FIRST THIRTEEN SESSION LAWS OF THE LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY OF THE TERRITORY OF ARIZONA, 1865 - 1885]

      Prescott, Tucson & San Francisco. 1865-1885.. Thirteen volumes, publication details and pagination provided below. Uniformly bound in 20th-century buckram, gilt leather labels. Minor shelf wear, some labels chipped. Ink stamp, embossed blindstamps. Overall good. Arizona had been administered as part of the Territory of New Mexico until its seizure by the Confederacy following the Battle of Mesilla in 1861, though this was a short- lived conquest. A new Territory of Arizona, consisting of the western half of New Mexico Territory, was then declared in Washington, D.C. on Feb. 24, 1863, and these are the published Acts of the first thirteen sessions of the territorial legislature. Arizona would not officially become a state until Feb. 14, 1912. The first volume here is especially important, as it is among the earliest imprints published within the Territory, and it includes the Organic Act providing for temporary government. In his sale catalogue Streeter writes of the first three volumes included here: "These laws, resolutions, and memorials of the first Legislative assembly of Arizona and those of the second and third Legislative assemblies, also in my collection, are an interesting source of contemporary information on mail routes, printing, railroads, Indian troubles, and for the general history of Arizona." The first volume alone sold for $225 in the Streeter sale. Few copies of the early volumes appear on the current market, with certainly nothing approaching this type of consecutive run. An especially rare set, virtually unobtainable on an individual basis. The works included here are as follows: ^1) ACTS, RESOLUTIONS AND MEMORIALS, ADOPTED BY THE FIRST LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY OF THE TERRITORY OF ARIZONA.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Dresden, 14. VIII. 1865. - 1¾ SS. Gr.-4to. An einen namentlich nicht genannten Adressaten: "Sie werden von mir gedacht haben: 'aus den Augen, aus dem Sinn', weil ich's so lange habe anstehen lassen mein Ihnen gegebenes Versprechen zu erfüllen. Aber ich eitler Mensch wollte mich erst wieder dick werden lassen ehe ich mich photographieren ließ, und dieß ist die Ursache meines Zögerns. Im Geiste bin ich sehr oft in Carlsbad und bei Ihnen gewesen, denn wo er Einem gut ergangen ist, da weilt man gern in seinen Gedanken. Carlsbad bleibt mir unvergeßlich u. mein dortiger Aufenthalt ein lichtvoller Punkt in meinem Leben. Wie freut es mich, mein Stübchen und Ihr Haus sammt Umgegend gezeichnet zu haben! [.] Das Sängerfest mit seinem Lärm ist nun vorüber, aber die Nachwehen - man sagt 60,000 x Deficit - wird unsere gute Stadt noch lange empfinden. Wie ich voraus sagte, hat die Gesankgskunst wenig von dem Feste gewonnen. Den zweiten Sängertage war die Sängerbühne kaum zum dritten Theile gefüllt u. zogen die meisten Sänger vor, sich anderweit zu verlustigen [.]". - Gustav Nieritz war Direktor der Bezirksschule in Dresden. Sein "erster schriftstellerischer Versuch war die Erzählung 'Das Pomeranzenbäumchen', die 1830 in der Dresdner Zeitschrift 'Der Merkur' erschien. Diesem Werk folgten mehr als 100 Jugendschriften, die Nieritz neben Christoph von Schmid und Christian Gottlob Barth zu einem der meistgelesenen Volks- und Jugendschriftsteller des 19. Jh. machten. Einige seiner Werke wurden in mehrere Sprachen übersetzt" (DBE).

        [THE AUTHOR'S RETAINED COPY OF THE MANUSCRIPT FINAL REPORT OF PROVOST MARSHAL JAMES ROWAN O'BEIRNE TO EDWIN STANTON, REGARDING THE HUNT FOR ASSASSIN JOHN WILKES BOOTH AND THE CONSPIRATORS]

      Washington, D.C., 1865. Lined legal paper (six sides of four sheets), plus three appendices written on four sheets, 8 x 13 inches, and one albumen photograph. Typical mailing folds, tiny repairs to a couple corners, some staple holes at top, one short fold separation. The albumen mount is trimmed close at top, with some stains and minor loss to the lower left corner of the albumen, staining to the edges of the mount. Overall very good. From the Philip D. Sang Collection. Provost Marshal James O'Beirne's final report to Secretary of War Edwin Stanton on the search for the conspirators who assassinated President Abraham Lincoln. On April 16, the day after Lincoln's death, Stanton ordered O'Beirne to track down John Wilkes Booth and his associates. The conspirators still in Washington D.C. were quickly rounded up by O'Beirne, who became a key player in the pursuit and capture of John Wilkes Booth and David Herold. He was hot on the trail of the conspirators when ordered to remain in Maryland while agents of Lafayette C. Baker and the Secret Service were dispatched to Virginia. That military contingent caught up with Booth and Herold at Garrett's Farm on April 26, where Booth died and Herold was captured, effectively ending the hunt. The report is written in a secretarial hand, dated May 1, and summarizes O'Beirne's activities "in the pursuit of the assassins of our late beloved and merciful President as also of the Secretary of State and family." His list of accomplishments points to the "seizure of the murderous weapons...owned by G. A. Atzerodt," leading the "first prompt pursuit into Maryland after Booth and Herold," then "bringing up the clues to the murderers to within twenty four hours later," the "arrest of [John] Lloyd and Dr. Mudd," the "first discovery of Booth's and Herold's flight into Virginia," the "information which led to the arrest of G.A. Atzerodt in Montgomery County, Maryland," and after going to the Peterson House he "secured the presence of the President's physician and other Medical Gentlemen," bringing Andrew Johnson to the Peterson House and escorting him back to the Kirkwood House. He refers to various reports and documentation, as well as listing colleagues whom he thanks. The front of the first page has a pencil inscription in O'Beirne's hand, reading, "awaiting[?] appendices D. report of Dec 27/65 wanted from AGO," suggesting (with the other elements of the archive) this is his personal copy. "Appendix A" lists "Articles Found in the room of G.A. Atzerodt at the Kirkwood House," including a coat "belonging to Booth or Herold," a revolver, a Bowie knife, a "Blank book of J Wilkes Booth," and more. "Appendix F" is a notarized deposition from Robert Murray, Marshal for the Southern District of New York, affirming a statement by Stanton to O'Beirne "that if you did not succeed in capturing Booth, it was the telegram which you sent to the War Department which led to it." "Appendix G" is a notarized statement by Patrick Brennan recalling a conversation between Marshals Murray and O'Beirne in which Murray affirmed hearing Stanton say that O'Beirne's telegram led directly to the capture of Booth and Herold and "that all the officers who were in pursuit did their duty nobly." Accompanying the report is a graphic albumen photograph from Gardner's INCIDENTS OF THE WAR. It is 6 3/4 x 9 inches on the original 9 1/4 x 11-inch title mount, and is hand- captioned: "Office of the Provost Marshall General's Office Washington, D.C. 1865 Draped in Mourning for Abraham Lincoln President of the United States. Cross (x) Gen'l Jas. Rowan O'Beirne Provost Marshall District of Columbia." O'Beirne stands in the front row with his hands in his pockets, and someone has marked an "X" in ink beneath him. Captain Edward P. Doherty, who led the troops that captured and killed Booth, stands in the doorway. Because he was kept out of Virginia and so denied the chance to capture his prey, O'Beirne was initially denied any part of the reward money and, embittered, had to lobby Congress, along with telegraph operator, Samuel Beckwith, in pursuit of his claim. He eventually received $2,000. This copy of the report was probably used by him in preparing his case. A fantastic document, and a rare firsthand account of the hunt for Lincoln's killers. An historically important report from one of Booth's main pursuers whose efforts were instrumental in his capture. This document was formerly part of the Philip D. Sang Collection (included in lot 200 of the first Sang sale, Sotheby Parke Bernet, April 1978).

He was wont to compose his works in a Swiss chalet in the garden. - The picture depicts Dickens in half-length pose. Not in the Pilgrim Edition of Dickens' letters.

Light wear to cloth at spine ends and corner tips, three tiny worm. holes in spine panel, two mild stains on spine panel, a very good. copy with fine interior.

One of a quartet of horror novels produced in the mid-1860s, "four sensational novels that are the best of their kind ... brilliant mid- Victorian novels of mystery and suspense." - Bleiler (ed), Supernatural Fiction Writers: Fantasy and Horror, p. 224-225. "... a superb mystery tale of murder and retributive fate. Le Fanu at the height of his powers weaves an intricate plot and keeps the readers breathless with expectation and excitement ... This is a bizarre tale which in its raw, jagged power almost equals WUTHERING HEIGHTS." - Devendra P. Varma, Arno Press promotional brochure for The Collected Works of Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu (1976), pp. 22-3. "Somber thriller in which the implacable working of fate brings the guilty to account, after the fashion of Le Fanu's best short stories (though the supernatural aspects are carefully understated). Similar in some ways to Wilkie Collins's melodramas ... but grimmer in outlook." - Barron (ed), Horror Literature 2-52. Tymn (ed), Horror Literature 2-64. Hubin (1994), p. 493.

        Études physiologiques sur les caractères graphiques des battements du coeur et des mouvements respiratoires et sur les différentes influences qui les modifient.

      Paris, Germer Baillière, 1865 - 8vo (214 x 128 mm), pp [iv] 63 [1], with several white-on-black illustrations in text; a very good copy, bound with two other offprints (see below), in contemporary half cloth and marbled boards. £1850First edition, presentation copy inscribed by Marey to Adolphe d'Eichthal (1805-1895), of Marey's pioneer study of graphic recording of physiological functions. 'Marey applied the technique of graphical recording to the study of the mechanics and hydraulics of the circulatory system, the heartbeat, respiration, and muscle contraction in general. He analyzed the circulatory and muscular systems in terms of the physical variables, elasticity, resistance, and tonicity. With the graphical trace he established the relationship of heart rate and blood pressure, thus supplementing previous studies of the value of blood pressure in a vessel with traces of its waveform .'In this early work Marey sought to apply his methods and results to pathology and to clinical diagnosis. His concern with the greatest possible accuracy in graphical records was matched by his concern for simplifying instruments so that they could be easily used by the clinical diagnostician' (DSB).This work is also of interest for the history of cinematography. It describes Marey's invention of the 'polygraphe' which allowed for the graphic recording of a variety of phenomena. Mannoni regards this as the precursor of Marey's cinematic camera of 1888, and also of the projector. 'L'analogie avec le projecteur peut être évoquée également, puisqu'un polygraphe à projection fonctionne en 1867, à la Sorbonne, pour illustrer les cours de Marey. L'appareil enregistreur trace son graphique en direct sur une plaque de verre enfumée placée au foyer d'une puissante lanterne magique électrique de Jules Duboscq. La projection animée des 200 vibrations par second émise par un diapason, méduse le public de la Sorbonne' (Mannoni, Étienne-Jules Marey: La mémoire de l'oeil, p 44).This work is an offprint from the Journal d'anatomie et de la physiologie (April 1865).Bound with Marey's Essai de théorie physiologique du choléra, Paris 1865 (with a similar presentation inscription), and E. Goze, La médecine militaire en France et en Amérique, Paris 1867.OCLC records only the BN Paris and University of Colorado

        Late-Victorian Hand-Painted Botany Books: Wild Flowers of Woolston & Neighbourhood

      Woolson [Southampton], late-19th century. Hardcover. Near Fine. Contemporary half gilt-ruled black morocco and mottled green cloth, gilt-stamped lettering on upper board; 2 volumes, small folio (325 x 200 mm); each approx. pp. 150, with a grand total of 213 pencil and watercolor drawings on the recto only (some full-page, others smaller with 2-6 per page), with captions (just a few blank captions, usually in pencil, presumably for drawings not completed) and 47 divisional title-pages (manuscript, handsome cursive in black ink) and numerous interleaved blanks. The drawings appear to have been made before the present binding, which probably dates from the last decade of the 19th century. Binder's tickets (Broadbere, Southampton). Especially lovely painted flowers, executed by Emily Mabel Neave (b. 1865) on her walks around Woolston (near Southampton in Hampshire), and remarkable for the skill and beauty in which they are carried out, as well as their botanical accuracy. The two volumes are arranged according to Linnaean orders and the Latin and common English names are listed (manuscript, pretty cursive, black ink) for each specimen. Includes Ranunculaceae, Nymphaeceae, Papaveraceae, Fumariaceae, Cruciferae, Resedaceae, Violaceae, Polygalaceae, Caryophyllaceae, Malvaceae, Hypericaceae, Geraniaceae, Oxalidaceae, Leguminosae, Rosaceae, Lythraceae, Onagraceae, Saxifragaceae, Umbelliferae, Araliaceae, Caprifoliaceae, Rubiaceae, Valerianaceae, Dipsaceae, Compositae, Campanulaceae, Ericaceae, Aquifoliaceae, Apocynaceae, Gentianaceae, Convolvulaceae, Boraginaceae, Solonaceae, Scropulariaceae, Labiatae, Lentibulariaceae, Primulaceae, Plumbaginaceae, Polygonaceae, Euphorbiaceae, Plantaginaceae, Urticaceae, Orchidaceae, Iridaceae, Amaryllidaceae, Liliaceae, and Juncaceae. Woolston, on the east bank of the mouth of the river Itchen (now a suburb of the port of Southampton) was a rapidly industrialising village neighborhood, which became a major shipbuilding center during Neave's lifetime, a circumstance which may have contributed to her desire to record the local botany with such care.

The site's Ocean Well, dug in 1865, was the first to prove that oil could be extracted from hilly terrain. Benninghoff Run was the scene of violence when teamsters, angered over loss of work, attempted to destroy the pipeline that comission dealer Henry Harvey built from Benninghoff Run to tanks at the Shaffer railroad, two miles away. The right-of-way of the Benninghoff-Shaffer pipeline can be seen in this image as a white streak extending vertically from the fields to the hill in the distance (cf. www.petroleumhistory.org).

        Autograph letter signed

      1865. Signed. GRANT, Ulysses S.Autograph letter signed.City Point, Virginia, March 1, 1865.Most exceptional three-page autograph letter written by General Ulysses S. Grant discussing the logistics for the release of Civil War POWs and giving specific details about the release of Union soldiers in Confederate prisons, signed by Grant.Written on lined "Headquarters Armies of the United States" stationery, the three-page letter reads, in full: "City Point, Va. March 1st 1865, Dear ------, Immediately in the receipt of your letter on the 27th ---. I instructed the Apt. Agt. of Ex. to make an effort to get young Whiting released at once. If he is where Richmond authorities can reach him I have no doubt about his immediate release. Under any circumstance all prisoners in the South will be released as rapidly as possible. To facilitate this matter I have agreed to receive our prisoners at Wilmington, Mobile, on the Mis. River and at Eastport, Mis. The Rebel Agt. of Exchange was glad to avail himself of this opportunity and immediately sent out orders to all prisoners in the South to deliver their charges at the most convenient of the above places. I think you need not entertain any fears about the early release of your nephew. Yours Truly. U.S. Grant. Lt. Gen." This letter is of particular interest due to its subject: the release of Civil War prisoners. During the Civil War, great controversy arose with respect to Grant and prisoner exchanges. Many believed him to be an obstructionist and accused him of keeping Union soldiers imprisoned in places such as the horrific Andersonville prison due to his alleged refusal to negotiate with the Confederacy. Strategically, Grant recognized that a captured Southern soldier took a fighting man off the battlefield and effectively rendered him a "dead soldier." Any exchange for his release simply resulted in more real dead Northern soldiers. While the policy of disallowing exchanges was unpopular, Grant realized that continually letting Southern prisoners go stood to strengthen Southern forces and prolong the war. Yet, this was not the entirety of Grant's justification. There was an active prisoner exchange system codified by the Dix Hill Cartel that began in July of 1862. Initially, black soldiers and their officers—while subject to the Emancipation Proclamation—were not included in the exchanges and could see their fellow soldiers paroled without them. Lincoln was displeased and issued General Orders 252 calling for equal treatment in exchanges and suspending Dix Hill. Large scale prisoner exchanges ceased, while small exchanges continued. Grant, in the West, had little involvement. In 1864, Grant finally did have power and it was then that he took a definitive stand on prisoner exchanges. In clear and concise words, he backed what Lincoln had already set in law. In a bold letter, Grant cut off prisoner exchanges in April of 1864 when the Confederacy refused to grant equal 1:1 exchanges in two particular cases: prisoners captured and paroled at Vicksburg and Port Hudson and black prisoners. In August, he once again held the line, realizing that Confederate prisoners vastly outnumbered Union soldiers and that most Union soldiers had completed their terms of enlistment. The date of this letter, thus, is particularly meaningful. It was written precisely as the Union was feeling relatively certain that the war had been won. Grant clearly felt he had more to gain from a prisoner exchange than he had to lose, even with the South bolstered by returning troops. With the South a mere month from surrender, he was obviously correct.Fine condition.

        The Thousand and One Nights; or, the Arabian Nights' Entertainments A New Translation from the Arabic with Copious Notes by Edward William Lane

      London: Routledge, Warne and Routledge. New York 129, Grand Street, 1865. A New Edition from a copy annotated by the translator. Edited by his nephew Edward Stanley Poole. Illustrated by many hundred illustrations on wood from original Designs by William Harvey. 3 vols. 8vo. Bound in full modern black morocco, a.e.g. for Aspreys. Fine. A New Edition from a copy annotated by the translator. Edited by his nephew Edward Stanley Poole. Illustrated by many hundred illustrations on wood from original Designs by William Harvey. 3 vols. 8vo. Edward Lane was the first to translate directly from the Arabic (previous English versions were essentially adaptations of Galland's French translation). "I assert that Galland has excessively perverted the work. His acquaintance with Arab manners and customs was insufficient to preserve him always from errors of the grossest description" (Lane, cited in Irwin, The Arabian Nights: A Companion, p. 24). Edward William Lane (1801-1876) moved to Egypt in 1825 and lived there for three years. Upon his return to London, he composed a substantial manuscript Description of Egypt, unpublished during his lifetime but from which he extracted An Account of the Manners and Customs of the Modern Egyptians (1836), a landmark work. He also prepared this translation of a selection of the Arabian Nights with his extensive ethnographic and cultural notes. "It reigned as the leading English translation of the Nights for decades, and its copious notes are stimulating micro-essays of enduring value" (ODNB). Its fame was somewhat eclipsed by the notoriety of Burton's edition (1883-6) which is not surprising given Burton's emphasis on sexual customs and practices. The Lane edition is also noteworthy as the first in which the illustrations were based upon serious research into the scenes and costumes of the middle east, and well as the translator's own direct experience. Lane had a very specific intention of introducing the British reader to the realistic Arab world and, "being himself a trained illustrator, closely supervised William Harvey's work" (Irwin). William Harvey (1796-1866) was a favoured pupil of Bewick. "He did more than 500 illustrations for Lane's translation ... exceptional in its close integration of the unframed images with the text - as it were, visual footnotes to the text ... Harvey's illustrations to the Nights were the summit of his artistic achievement, and throughout the nineteenth century his illustrations were the most frequently reproduced" (Irwin, Visions of the Jinn). Attractively bound edition of Lane's Arabian Nights.

        Pre-historic times, as illustrated by ancient remains, and the manners and customs of modern savages.

      Williams and Norgate, London 1865 - Lubbock, John (1834&#150;1913). Pre-historic times, as illustrated by ancient remains, and the manners and customs of modern savages. xxiii, 512pp. Lithographed frontispiece and 3 plates (1 colored), wood-engraved text illustrations. London: Williams and Norgate, 1865. 215 x 138 mm. Half calf gilt, marbled boards ca. 1865, marbled edges, light shelfwear. Fine copy. Armorial bookplate of British politician Thomas Sebastian Bazley (1829-1919). First Edition of Lubbock&#146;s best-known work, which introduced the terms "Paleolithic" and "Neolithic" to distinguish between the earlier and later Stone Age periods. A banker by profession (he enacted the British Bank Holidays Act of 1871), Lubbock made his name in scientific circles as an anthropologist and archeologist. He became interested in human prehistory after visiting Boucher de Perthes in April 1860, and in the spring of 1861 he visited Denmark with his friend George Busk, where he learned of the division of early cultures into the ages of stone, bronze, and iron. After delivering a series of lectures at the Royal Institution on "The Antiquity of Man" in the summer of 1864, Lubbock organized his material into a book that addressed not only the topic of human antiquity but also the larger issues of the lives and cultures of people in the Stone Age. In contrast to some of the other early researchers in these fields who focused on the geology of the prehistoric sites or on the tools found in them, Lubbock studied the artifacts of Stone Age cultures in order to shed light on their function, as part of an overall attempt to reconstruct what life might have been like in the Stone Age. In order to gain further insight into life in prehistoric times he also studied a wide variety of non-western peoples, some of whose lives and cultures appeared to him to provide strong analogues to life during the Stone Age. Pre-Historic Times remained a standard work for over 50 years, with the seventh and final edition appearing just after Lubbock&#146;s death in 1913. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        (OCTOBER 12, 1865 - ENDING MARTIAL LAW IN KENTUCKY ) BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA A PROCLAMATION

      Washington, D.C. Oct. 12, 1865.. [1]pp. Folio bifolium. Light edge wear. Near fine. An important official printing of the presidential proclamation ending martial law in Kentucky in October 1865. Kentucky had not joined the Confederacy, so the proclamation of martial law there was a step Lincoln had avoided until it seemed absolutely necessary. Martial law had been declared by President Lincoln on July 5, 1864, when the Civil War was still raging and "combinations were in progress in Kentucky for the purpose of inciting insurgent raids into that State." Johnson also comments on why martial law can now be ended because "the danger from insurgent raids into Kentucky has substantially passed away." An extraordinarily rare government publication, with only one copy in OCLC, at the Filson Historical Society. OCLC 49243807.

        The Last Hurrah! Just days after Lee?s surrender of the Army of Northern Virginia and Lincoln?s assassination, Army of Tennessee holdouts Joseph E. Johnston and Wade Hampton ?in expectation of the conclusion of peace? see to Joseph Wheeler?s promotion to Lieutenant General while he was attempting to cover Jefferson Davis?s escape

      Greensboro, North Carolina, April 22, 1865. 4.25" x 7". "Autograph Letter Signed ?J.E.. Johnston?, 2p, 4.25? x 7?, separate sheets. On laid paper. Greensboro, April 22, 1865. To Gen. John C.

Fine condition.Four days before surrendering his Army of Tennessee to Union Gen. William T. Sherman on April 26, 1865, Confederate Gen. Johnston writes, in full, ?In expectation of the conclusion of Peace very soon, Major General Wheeler desires to be prepared for foreign service. He has, as you probably know, long commanded a corps of cavalry. He thinks that the evidence of that fact might be of advantage to him in obtaining Military rank hereafter - & that the simplest evidence would be the corresponding rank ?" or rather the appointment of Lieut. General. I believe that it is needless to remind you of the fidelity zeal courage & success with which general Wheeler commanded his corps.? Lieut. Gen. Hampton adds on verso of second sheet, in full, ?Hd. Qts. Apr 22nd 1865. I must Respy & earnestly recommend this appointment. Not only will it assist Genl. Wheeler in his proposed object, but it will be a fitting mark by our Government of its appreciation of his long & gallant service. Wade Hampton Lt Genl?On February 6,1865, Gen. John C. Breckinridge became the Confederacy?s last Secretary of War. Joseph Wheeler fought under General Joseph E. Johnston in the Carolinas until the end of the war. Wheeler was replaced as cavalry chief by Lt. Gen. Wade Hampton and fought under him at the Battle of Bentonville on March 19?"20, 1865. A telegram from Breckinridge at Greensboro to Jefferson Davis dated April 19, 1865, informing him of Lincoln?s assassination, suggests that the Secretary of War was personally presented with Johnston and Hampton?s recommendation.Certainly the finest wartime letter of Johnston in private hands. The only comparable item ever offered is Johnston?s General Order #18, surrender of April 26, 1865, of which several fair copy examples exist and which typically sell for around $20,000."

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Baden bei Wien, 18. IV. 1865.. 1 S. 8vo. auf gefalt. Doppelblatt.. An den Schauspieler Carl Ritter von La Roche (1794-1884): "Wenn es Sie wundern sollte, von einem Manne brieflich angesprochen zu werden, der nicht das Glück hat, mit Ihnen in näherer Verbindung zu stehen, so mögen Sie die Schuld dem wahrhaft künstlerischen Eindruck Ihrer Persönlichkeit auf mich beimessen. Dass sich derselbe im Laufe der Jahre nicht verwischte, werden Sie natürlich finden, wenn Sie sich erinnern wollen, dass schon meine Dankbarkeit für Ihre meisterhafte Verlebendigung einer meiner Ideen ihn consecrieren müsste [ ] Ich habe ein bürgerliches Schauspiel in vier Akten vollendet und wünschte lebhaft Ihr Urtheil darüber namentlich in Bezug auf praktische Bühnenbrauchbarkeit zu erfahren - Darf ich es Ihnen in gut lesbarer Abschrift zusenden und Ihre briefliche Rückäußerung in Anspruch nehmen? Das ist die Bitte, an die sich im Gewährungsfalle das weitere Ersuchen knüpft, die Existenz des Stückes streng geheim zu halten [ ]". - Mit Stempel der Handschriftensammlung von Graf Viktor Wimpffen "Sammlung La Roche". - Durch regimekritische Essays 1847 zur Flucht aus Wien genötigt, kehrte Lorm nach Ende der Revolution zurück, wurde Redakteur der "Wiener Zeitung" und durch mehrere Feuilletonromane auch bald schon einem größeren Publikum bekannt. Sein lyrisches Werk ist wesentlich vom Einfluß Schopenhauers geprägt. Seit 1856 in Baden bei Wien, später in Dresden und Brünn lebend, erfand der bereits von Jugend an sehschwache, 1880 jedoch völlig erblindete Schriftsteller die noch heute gültige Handtastensprache (Lormsches Fingeralphabet).

        Selection ofNovels by Various Authors

      911 - London - Various Publishers 1865 - An attractive set of twenty one novels by various authors, generally dating from the Nineteenth Century. Many of these works are very rare, and hard to find. We have put them together as they are bound as a set. Including the novels Tie and Trick by Hawley Smart (undated) , The Life and Adventures of Mervyn Clitheroe by William Harrison Ainsworth (undated), Life of a Racehorse by John Mills (c1865), 'Twas in Trafalgar's Bay (c1880) and The Seamy Side (c1880) by Walter Besant and James Rice, Through One Administration by Frances Hodgson Burnett (c1881), One Thing Needful (undated), The Golden Calf (undated), One Life, One Love (1891), Like and Unlike(c1888)and Phantom Fortune (1884) by Mary Elizabeth Braddon, The Bread-Winners by John Hay (1884), Court Royal by Sabine Baring-Gould (1887), Landing a Prize by Mrs. Edward Kennard (1891), A Village Commune (1882) and Guilderoy (1891) by Ouida, Mrs. Arthur by Mrs. Oliphant (1891), Mark Twain's Sketches by Mark Twain (1892), Prince Schamyl's Wooing by Richard Henry Savage(1892), A Slender Clue by Lawrence L. Lynch (1892) and To Leeward by F. Marion Crawford (c1911). Although in terms of content or theme there is nothing linking this selection, the works here are the product of some of the leading literary minds of the Nineteenth Century, from quintessentially American writers such as Mark Twain and Richard Henry Savage, as well as writers whose work is of a uniquely British bent, such as Ouida and Mary Elizabeth Braddon. Each volume is bound in decorative red quarter-morocco bindings and represents an interestingly broad range of themes and subjects, something that is in turn reflected in the vast and diverse range of novelists and writing that would become prominent in the Victorian Era. Many volumes contain the ownership label of one John Foster, many also include the bookbinders'stamps of E. Langley of Reading. Includes ink inscription to the endpages of Life and Adventures of Mervyn Clitheroe, from one J. K. Foster and one J. Cole of Eton College dated 1881. The Life of a Racehorse features illustrative plates throughout by E. Evans. Condition: In decorative quarter-morocco binding with gilt detailing and paper covered boards. Externally sound, there is wear to the extremities, boards and backstrips. The joints are very worn on Tie an Trick and the hinges on Mrs. Arthur are very tender. Internally, the pages are firmly bound and are generally bright and clean, aside from the odd instance of foxing to endpages and the odd spot. Overall: GOOD. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Framed Print of Abraham Lincoln

      Davenport, IO: A. Hageboeck, 1865. NA. Near Fine. The bust of Lincoln is cleverly made out by a darkening and lightening of the calligraphic script used in the presentation of the Proclamation of Emancipation in its entirety. Lincoln is not so much as drawn as emerging from the writing like a spectre, yet remarkably, the likeness is unmistakable. Thus the Great Lincoln is shown as the embodiment of his lofty words. The oval print measures at its largest dimensions 32 by 26 cm. It is matted and and very handsomely framed. The frame, with metalwork ornamentation atop oak, is 47 by 41 cm. The print was created shortly after the watershed Proclamation was issued -- within two years -- and it speaks to the jubilation that the pronouncement was greeted in some quarters of the Union. As is well-known, the Proclamation's effect was more indirect and oblique than its lofty words might suggest -- Lincoln was not liberating all the slaves, but only those slaves in the Confederacy, whose territory he had no sway. But what the Proclamation did accomplish was to end any thought in Britain of backing the South, and it also is rightly seen as a major step forward in the final abolition of slavery throughout the United States, culminating in the Thirteenth Amendment ratified in 1865. The paper is toned, with a craggy thin vein that is oddly and inexplicably lighter. Few, though, will find this defect more than minor or disconcerting. The frame is attractive and appropriate.

        Selection from the Works

      1865. TENNYSON, Alfred.A Selection from the Works.London: Edward Moxon, 1865.Limited edition of Alfred Tennyson?'s selected poetry in an exquisite Cosway signed binding, with a beautiful miniature painting of Alfred Tennyson executed on ivory by Miss Currie, number 811 of the Cosway Bindings invented by J.H. Stonehouse, signed on the limitation page by both Currie and Stonehouse, splendidly bound in full morocco-gilt by Riviere & Son.Tennyson ?"was one of the finest lyrists of the English tongue… There are besides in all his non-lyric poems passages of profound meditative music. Half at least of what he wrote the world would not willingly let die?" (Kunitz & Haycraft, 612-13). The selections made here for Moxon?'s Miniature Poets series attempt to represent Tennyson?'s finest work. Cosway bindings (named for renowned 19th-century English miniaturist Richard Cosway) were commissioned in the early 1900s by J.H. Stonehouse, managing director of London booksellers Sotheran & Company, from the famous Rivière bindery, who employed Miss C.B. Currie to faithfully imitate Cosway?'s detailed water-color style of portraiture. These delicate miniature paintings, often on ivory, were set in the covers or doublures of richly-tooled bindings and protected by thin panes of glass. This superb specimen of the fascinating art of Cosway binding was executed by Miss Currie herself. Painted on ivory, it shows Alfred Tennyson and is inset into the front cover. The binding is the 811th invented by Stonehouse for Riviere. This copy is signed on a limitation page by both Currie and Stonehouse.An exceptionally beautiful copy in fine condition.
