Wilten, Dr. Sir, Yours of February 14th came to hand today, was truly glad to hear from you and my relations. I am in fine spirits at this time, looking forward to the time when I will be called upon for exchange if everything goes on well, my "turn" will come, in about six weeks. Cousin Edel will leave in the next squad, he is very much excited over the idea of getting back, and I think he has improved in looks considerably since he has been xxx for that purpose. I have not heard from Lt. Thompson for some time, perhaps he's gone on exchange. In regard to the tobacco, I am very glad you did not send it at this particular time, though if I am so unfortunate as to remain here during the summer it will be very acceptable and hope you will make the necessary arrangements with Perncell to ship me a small box when I write again, if it is your intention to send Ben tobacco, do not send together, direct separately, otherwise we could not divide with each other. I often hear from Joe and Frank. They are well, all of the Lazerwell boys here are well. The health of this place is very good. I will be pleased to hear from you again. Give my love to all my friends and relations. Yours Respectfully, James PeeryPSI enclose you a stamp, perhaps you can't get them. "This letter has been carefully framed and stored with the original envelope, with stamp and postal markings. Johnson's Island is a 300-acre (121.4 ha) island in Sandusky Bay, located on the coast of Lake Erie, 3 miles (5 km) from the city of Sandusky, Ohio. It was the site of a prisoner-of-war camp for Confederate officers captured during the American Civil War. Johnson's Island was the only Union prison exclusively for Southern officers but it also held regular soldiers. During its three years of operation, more than 15,000 men were incarcerated there.

        St. Goar on the Rhine

      London 1865 - Chromolithograph. Trimmed and mounted on board as issued. In excellent condition, with the exception of a tear in the image. Scratch in upper section of image with small puncture mark. Image size: 16 ¾ x 25 13/16. A picturesque view of St. Goar on the Rhine by the celebrated landscape painter, Thomas Richardson. Thomas M. Richardson , born and died in Newcastle upon Tyne, but spent a considerable amount of time traveling in France, Switzerland, Italy and Germany, and produced lithographs of the watercolours he did there. This excellent study on the Rhine being a perfect example. The printing, a major element in the success of a chromolithograph, was done by M. & N. Hanhart. Richardson was son and pupil of T. M. Richardson the Elder, who taught him to work in oils and watercolours. After his father's death, Richardson the Younger worked exclusively in watercolour. He was a member of the Society of Painters in Watercolour and a member of the Royal Scottish Academy. Chromolithography was achieved by using a series of carefully registered tint stones to create a smooth richly coloured image. This printing process became immensely popular towards the end of the nineteenth century and was widely used in fine art as well as commercial printing. One of the most important chromolithographic firms was M & N Hanhart in London. The firm, founded by Michael Hanhart, began publishing its first prints in 1840 and remained in business until the end of the century. Hanhart's was known for its large separately published chromolithographs, but it printed everything from book illustrations to song sheets. This stunning print after Richardson is a fine example of Hanhart's superior chromolithographs. Its intense colour and meticulous detailing is common of Hanhart's superior printing techniques representing the best example of nineteenth century chromolithography. Benezit, Dictionary of Artists.

        BIRDS EYE VIEW OF NEW YORK AND ENVIRONS" - A HAND-COLORED ENGRAVED TOPOGRAPHICAL MAP OF NEW YORK CITY

      Kimmel & Foster, New York 1865 - 140 x 203 mm (5 1/2 x 8"). Attractively matted. Evidence of previous matting (faint brown line at bottom and along right, outside the image, where earlier mat must have been), otherwise fresh, clean, uncreased, and altogther fine. Looking at the island from a southern vantage point, this is a fascinating view of Manhattan and environs at the end of the Civil War, before the great bridges spanned the river. The surprisingly verdant Battery Park is in the foreground, with ships docked at the piers on the tip of the island. The river is swarming with boats, from three-masted tall ships to steamships and ferries--and more vessels are docked all around the edges of the island and across the river at the Brooklyn piers. The great bridges that will connect Manhattan with the outer boroughs have yet to be built, and the tallest structures in the city are the church steeples. In the far distance uptown, we can see the beginnings of Frederick Law Olmstead's Central Park. The density of the buildings and the bustling river traffic establish it as a vital commercial center, the seed of what would become the financial capital of the world. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Autograph letter signed.

      Hottingen near Zürich, 20. X. 1865. - Large 4to. 2½ pp. on 4 ff. A very long and comprehensive letter to Franz von Pfistermeister, cabinet secretary of Ludwig II of Bavaria, on preliminary works for a Festival Theatre for Wagner in Munich. The project was pursued for a few years, but finally not realised. Instead of Munich, Ludwig decided to build the Theatre in Weimar; nevertheless, Semper's original drafts were used, but witthout the architect's permission. In his letter, Semper writes very detailed about the central position of the orchestra, the stage, and the auditorium. He refers to Wagner, with whom he talked on the project, and his ideas of designing the interior. - The foundation stone of the Festival Theatre at Weimar was laid on Wagner's birthday in May 1872; the building construction was realised under the German architect Otto Brückwald, and the building was first opened for the premiere of the complete four-opera cycle of "Der Ring des Nibelungen", from August 13, 1876 to August 17, 1876. One year later Wagner wrote to Semper: "Das Theater ist, wenn auch grob und kunstlos, nach Deinen Entwürfen ausgeführt" ("The theater is, even if crude and artless, executed according to your drafts"; cf. Hermann Sturm, Alltag & Kult, Basel 2003, p. 109f.). - Somewhat browned and spotty; fol. 1 nearly torn in the centerfold, small tears and slight ruststains.

        On the Exploration of the North Polar Regions - Together with Original Letter Signed By Osborn

      William Cloves, London 1865 - These are the administrative papers of the Royal Geographical Society of London which contain letters and dissertations as well as lectures made by explorers. They were published annually as the 'Proceedings' and were separately published from the Society's Journal. Presented here is a double volume No. 8 and No. 9 from 1863 - 1865 which contains a number of polar articles such as the one by Osborn (30 pages). Also present are Petermann (North Polar Exploration), Hickson (Climate and Exploration of North Pole), Markham (Best route for North Polar Exploration), Murchison (Speech on North Polar Exploration), Lady Franklin (Letter on North Poklar Expedition), Linnean Society (Minute on North Polar Expedition), Jansen (Early Dutch Navigators in Arctic Regions and Notes on the Ice between Greenland and Nova Zembla), Hayes (Scientific Results of American Arctic Expedition). Accompanied by a highly detailed Table of Voyages Towards the North Pole, detailing the captain and ship, the latitude and the nature of observation as well as some crucial remarks. These papers clearly summarize the current knowledge of Arctic waters after the Inglefield and McClintock expeditions which brought proof of Franklin's demise. They also clearly demonstrate the effort put forth by the Royal Geographical and Linnean Society to lobby the government to mount another expedition so as not not lose the Arctic advantage to other nations. Accompanying the volume is an ALS by Sherard Osborn advising his correspondent that his election for Fellow of the RGS is not up until the next meeting.

        Miners! Laboring Men! Mechanics! Rally! Great Mass Meeting at Piper';s Opera House. Adolph Sutro Will Address the Citizens of Virginia City

      [Virginia City, NV], 1865. Very good. 17.25" x 23" broadside printed on cardboard, with portions completed in crayon or charcoal pencil. Some rubbing, a few water spots; very good. Announces a meeting organized to rally popular support and financing for the Sutro Tunnel. Adolph Sutro's proposed four-mile-long drainage tunnel would correct the flooding of the mines under Virginia City, saving pumping costs, allowing for deeper mining, and providing better ventilation and an additional means of egress. The Bank of California and other major mining interests opposed the tunnel, fearing it would decrease their control over the valuable resources of the Comstock Lode. The Bank succeeded in blocking much of Sutro's access to investors, and his plan appeared doomed to failure until the Yellow Jacket Mine Fire (April 1869) killed forty-five miners whose lives might have been spared had the tunnel been in place. Miners became interested in the issue, and the speech announced in this broadside proved to be a critical turning point. The Miners' Union voted to provide Sutro with $50,000 to start the job, and other funders soon followed their lead. The tunnel was successfully completed in 1878 and served as a model for drainage and access tunnels at many other mining sites. Sutro sold his interest in the tunnel the following year, departing a wealthy man for San Francisco, where he was elected Mayor in 1894.

        Coleoptera Atlantidum, being an enumeration of the coleopterous insects of the Madeiras, Salvages, and Canaries.

      . London, John van Voorst, 1865. Thick 8vo. xlvii, 526, 140 pp., one engraved map. Publisher's blind-stamped cloth with gilt title on the spine.* The first monograph on the beetles of what is collectively known as the northern Macaronesian islands in the temperate-subtropical North Atlantic. The material was mostly collected by the author. As could be expected from rather isolated island-faunas most species described in this work are endemic. Thomas Vernon Wollaston (1822-1878) FLS published a series of eight island faunal studies, the others being on the insects of Madeira (published in 1854), the Coleoptera of Madeira in the British Museum (1857), ditto those of the Canaries (1864), and those of the Cape Verde Islands (1867), on the landshells of the Atlantic islands (1878), and on the variation of species, with especial reference to the insecta (1858). The last mentioned paper in particular is an important contribution to evolution. However, Wollaston, concluded from his researches that species were created under a divine plan to best suit local circumstances. Published in the year previous to Darwin's "On the origin of species", it was kindly received by Darwin. In turn, Wollaston, who could not shed his religious beliefs, published quite a negative review of Darwin's work.Thereafter sympathy between both men although working on much the same subject deteriorated slowly but steadily. The present work is dedicated to the British zoologist (in particular malacologist and cetaceologist) John [Edward] Gray (1800-1875), keeper of zoology of the British Museum in London, "...In whose yacht I first visited the Canarian Archipelago...". This study was based on over 20,000 specimens, belonging to 1,449 species described earlier, mostly by Wollaston himself but including at least seventy new species, described here in the 140 pp. appendix. Joints expertly repaired, an excellent and clean copy. Very rare. Horn-Schenkling II(4), p. 453..

        Last Formal Photograph of Lincoln, with Son "Tad"

      Boston, Mass. 1865 - Albumen Photograph by Bouve, Boston, Mass., February 5, 1865, image 6 1/4 x 8 1/2 in., mounted on original board, 8 x 10 in. In this albumen print, Lincoln's youngest son Thomas is erroneously called "Thaddeus," because of nickname "Tad." An unfinished Washington Monument rises in the background, perhaps referencing the funerary monument motif of a broken column as symbolic of a life cut short. Thomas "Tad" Lincoln (1853-1871) was the fourth son of Abraham and Mary Todd Lincoln. At the time of his birth, the Lincolns had already lost their second-born son, Edward, in 1850. The family mourned third-born Willie in 1862. "Tad," nicknamed by his father because he had a large head on a small body and wriggled like a tadpole, largely had free reign of the White House. He did not attend school and was the bane of many tutors. After Lincoln's assassination, he, eldest son Robert (1843-1926), and Mary Todd (1818-1882) lived in Chicago, where Tad was devoted to his mother. Tad died of heart failure in 1871. This image shows father and son posing for what would be Lincoln's last sitting. Construction of the Washington Monument began in 1848, but was not completed until 1884.ReferencesCharles Hamilton and Lloyd Ostendorf, Lincoln in Photographs: An Album of Every Known Pose (Dayton, Ohio: Morningside House, 1985) 220.

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

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