        Stereoscope view of "Great Collins St Melbourne from Treasury steps", from the series "Australian Scenery"

      Melbourne: Age Office, probably, 1865. Stereographic photograph mounted on dark yellow card, left image creased and with a few spots, printed label verso completed in manuscript; very good. Very early photographic view of Collins Street, circa 1865: this apparently unrecorded stereoscopic card depicts an enigmatic view of the city, and makes a significant new addition to the relatively small corpus of photographs of Melbourne from this period.The label on the verso has been completed in manuscript with the caption "Great Collins St. Melbourne from Treasury Steps" (the Treasury building was completed in 1862).Australians were introduced to stereoscopic photography in 1853 by Douglas Kilburn (see the entry in the DAAO), and over the following decade a few of the pioneer practitioners began to investigate the new medium. This and the following three cards were taken by Charles Walter (fl. 1855-1907), an important if largely unheralded early exponent of photography in Victoria (there is no entry for him in the DAAO). Walter arrived in Australia from Germany in 1855 and was collecting for his patron, botanist Baron Ferdinand von Mueller by 1856. His earliest known photograph is dated 1862, and he was advertising as a 'Country Photographic Artist' by 1865. Gael Newton locates him at the vanguard of 'the new breed of photographers' specialising in landscape work, who, from the mid-1860s, 'set off on solo expeditions into remote parts of Victoria in search of picturesque views' (Jane Lydon, 'The Experimental 1860s,' Aboriginal History, 2002). In the 1860s he was the first to photograph the newly founded Aboriginal reserves and is known to have visited Coranderrk in 1865 and 1866, and the Gippsland region in 1868.These four photographs, recently unearthed in the United States, appear to be orphans of what was evidently planned as a rather grand project. Printed labels to the back of three of the cards have the title "Australian Scenery" by Chas. Walter, "Photographic Artist to the Illustrated Australian News", but also with mention of "The Age Office, Melb." What happened to this project? Nothing about it appears in standard works by Jack Cato, Robert Holden, Alan Davies or Peter Stanbury. Nor are there any obvious hints in Trove or any of the other online databases. Was "Australian Scenery" in fact shelved once Walter agreed to visit the Aboriginal Missions - certainly the technical expertise of his Aboriginal portraits and views seems an improvement on the skills evident here, perhaps suggesting that this was an informal apprenticeship.Interestingly, at least one of the Coranderrk images ("Group of Australian men and a woman", SLVIC, H32549/2) has a similar label with mention of the Age and the legend "Photographic Artist to the Illustrated Australian News", but the heading there appears to be "Australian Natives", perhaps confirming Walter's shift in direction. More research could be done, but these photographs are a contribution to the earliest phase of the photographic history of Australia.

        City of Portsmouth, N.H. Joint Resolutions of the City Council.

      - N.p. [Portsmouth, NH]: N.p. [Portsmouth City Council], 15 April 1865. Small broadside. 7¼" X 9 3/4". Very good. Light overall wear. Thin black mourning border. "WHEREAS," begins this somber Lincoln assassination broadside, "Our City has been plunged into sudden and deep grief by the murder of our beloved fellow countryman and honored Chief Magistrate, ABRAHAM LINCOLN. And Whereas. And Whereas. therefore be it Resolved. That we shall ever hold sacred his irreproachable example in public life, joining prudence with power, firmness with leniency, patriotism with humanity, wisdom with religion. That we deplore the murderous assault upon our distinguished Secretary of State, the Honorable WILLIAM H. SEWARD. That with new ardor we pledge our property, our time, and our lives to the cause which has now laid new obligations upon us. That in the cry for punishment which goes up all over our land it shall be our effort to temper vengeance by mercy." Signed in type by Hackett as president of the common council and by Bailey as mayor of the board of aldermen. Very early and scarce. Archivally and tastefully free-floated (to display mourning border) under UV-filtering glass and a 1¼" antiqued silver frame. A superb presentation. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        CARTE DE VISITE OF SHA-KPE (LITTLE SIX), DAKOTA INDIAN CHIEF].

      St. Paul, Mn. Whitney's Gallery, [ca. 1865]. - Carte de visite, mounted to card, total size 4 x 2 1/4 inches. Small ink smudge on verso, else fine. The Dakota War, or Sioux Uprising, was one of the last large scale attempts by Native Americans to expel white settlers from their territory (the "Massacre of 1862" referred to in the caption below the photograph). Dakota warriors in Minnesota felt the time was ripe for victory, as more and more American men joined the Union during the Civil War, leaving Minnesota largely unprotected by the American military. Chief Shakopee (Sha-Kpe or Little Six) was one of the leaders during the uprising. After he and the Dakota were defeated by Minnesota Territorial troops in the summer of 1862, Shakopee and several of the leaders, including Medicine Bottle, escaped into Canada. There, in January 1864, the two chiefs were decoyed by British soldiers, drugged, tied up, kidnapped, and delivered back across the border to Major Edwin Hatch. The two Dakota chiefs were tried the following August, condemned to death and hanged together at Fort Snelling, Minnesota, Nov. 11, 1865. Posed against one of the stone walls at Fort Snelling, Little Six is wrapped in a ragged blanket, with his short-cropped hair under a calico kerchief. Standing to his left, only the edge of his own blanket visible in this frame, is Medicine Bottle, who was photographed first, then stood aside as Little Six slid over and assumed the same position. Little Six is one of the few Indian leaders who was photographed at several stages of his life. He visited Washington in 1858, where his photograph was taken by Julian Vannerson. The 1858 image was used by William Blackmore in his first collection of images of prominent Native American leaders. This photograph captures him towards his tragic end, and may in fact be the last depiction of him before he was hanged. An extraordinarily rare image.

        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. May 1, 1865. - [10]pp. Lined legal paper (six sides of four sheets), plus three appendices written on four sheets, 8" x 13" 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'Bierne, 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 hand-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 who 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, enbitte

        THE ASSASSINATION AND DEATH OF ABRAHAM LINCOLN, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, AT WASHINGTON, ON THE 14th OF APRIL, 1865.

      New York: American News Company, [1865]. - 12pp. Self-wrappers, sewn, as issued. Bottom corner of title leaf with a tiny repair, faint marginal dampstain. Very good. According to the fourth volume of MIDLAND NOTES, this is the "first separately published account of the assassination." Each leaf is edged in black to represent mourning. The text covers events of the evening of the 14th of April and through the morning of the 15th, including the events at Ford's Theatre and the attack on Secretary Seward. It was probably printed within a few days of Lincoln's death, certainly prior to the capture of any of those connected with the plot. "Employs the garbled and conflicting deathbed dispatches, and possibly their earliest appearance in pamphlet form" - Eberstadt. FISH 3. MONAGHAN 372. McDADE 607. MIDLAND NOTES 4:1.

        [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. May 1, 1865.. [10]pp. Lined legal paper (six sides of four sheets), plus three appendices written on four sheets, 8" x 13" 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'Bierne, 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 hand-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 who 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, enbittered, had to lobby Congress, along with telegraph operator Samuel Beckwith, in pursuit of his claim. He eventually received $2000. This copy of the report was probably used by him in preparing his case. A fantastic document, and a rare first-hand 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).
