        Eigenh. Brief m. Unterschrift ("Plücker").

      Bonn, 25. V. 1865.. 4 S., 8°.. [An den österr. Chemiker u. Mineralogen Anton Schrötter von Kristelli (1802-1875)]. - "[...] Gemeinsam mit Heinrich Geißler schuf Plücker die Voraussetzung zur modernen Vakuumtechnik. Seine Grundlagenforschungen sind später für die Atomforschung wichtig geworden. In der Mathematik erfand er die Liniengeometrie, in der ein Punkt durch die durch ihn hindurchgehenden Geraden charakterisiert wird, und arbeitete über algebraische Kurven sowie deren Singularitäten. Nach ihm benannt sind die Plücker-Matrix und Plücker-Koordinaten zur eindeutigen Repräsentation von Geraden sowie die "Plückerschen Formeln", die eine einfache Relation zwischen den Anzahlen spezieller Punkte einer Kurve herstellen. In der Kombinatorik lieferte er eine der frühesten Beschreibungen von Blockplänen (er konstruierte S (2,3,9) in seinem Buch System der analytischen Geometrie von 1835). Er führte Regelflächen ein und eine spezielle Regelfläche (Plücker Konoid) ist nach ihm benannt. In der Physik beschäftigte er sich unter anderem mit dem Magnetismus der Kristalle sowie mit elektrischen Entladungen im Vakuum. 1858 entdeckte er die Kathodenstrahlen. Seit 1855 gehörte er als auswärtiges Mitglied der Royal Society an, mit deren Copley Medal er 1866 ausgezeichnet wurde [...]" (Wikipedia). --- Der in Olmütz geborene Anton Schrötter, Sohn eines Apothekers, studierte ab 1822 zunächst auf Wunsch seines Vaters in Wien Medizin, wechselte dann aber unter dem Einfluss von Friedrich Mohs zu den naturwissenschaftlichen Fächern, speziell der Mineralogie. 1827 erhielt er eine Assistentenstelle für Physik und Mathematik an der Universität Wien. 1830 wurde er Professor für Physik und Chemie am Technischen Institut Joanneum in Graz. Während eines halbjährigen Urlaubs im Jahre 1838 besuchte er chemische Institute in Göttingen, Heidelberg, Frankfurt und Paris. In Gießen machte er sich bei Justus von Liebig mit der organischen Elementaranalyse vertraut. Ab 1843 arbeitete er als Professor für technische Chemie am Polytechnischen Institut der Universität Wien und übernahm dort 1845 die Professur für allgemeine Chemie. Schrötter war neben Baumgartner, Ettingshausen und Haidinger einer der Begründer der Kaiserlichen Akademie der Wissenschaften in Wien und wurde 1850 ihr Generalsekretär. Die Deutsche Akademie der Naturforscher Leopoldina wählte Schrötter 1856 zu ihrem Mitglied. Ab 1868 leitete er das österreichische Hauptmünzamt und wurde gleichzeitig zum Ministerialrat ernannt. Er wurde 1874 in den Ruhestand versetzt und eröffnete in seiner Wohnung ein Privatlaboratorium, in dem er Studien über Edelmetalle betrieb. 1875 starb er in Wien. Schrötter hat in seinem Leben ca. 60 wissenschaftliche Publikationen verfasst. Ab 1845 beschäftigte Schrötter sich intensiv mit Phosphor. 1848 gelang ihm der Nachweis der schon von Berzelius geäußerten Vermutung, dass roter Phosphor eine allotrope Modifikation des weißen Phosphors, nicht aber eine Phosphorverbindung ist. Schrötter wandelte weißen Phosphor durch Erhitzen in roten um, den man zeitweise Schrötterschen Phosphor nannte. Sein Verfahren zur Darstellung desselben revolutionierte die Streichholzindustrie, wo roter Phosphor schon bald als Bestandteil der Reibflächen genutzt wurde. Er war ein Organisator in Industrie und Wissenschaft sowie Berater bei den Vorbereitungen zur Novara-Expedition und zur Österreich-Ungarischen Nordpolexpedition. -

Volkmann's "Ischemic Paralysis and Contractures" is one of his lesser contributions, but his best known eponym. --- During the siege of Paris, as a German army officer occupying a French chateau and waiting for the surrender, Volkmann used his leisure to prepare his Reveries at French Firesides, comprising short stories written for children but also widely read by adults. The book was published under the pseudonym Richard Leander, the hellenized form of his name. - He was born in Leipzig and spent six years in the famous Fürstenschule at Grima. At the age of 20 years he began his study of medicine at Halle, where his father A.W. Volkmann held the cheir of physiology from 1843 until 1877. In 1867 he became full professor and head of the surgical clinic in Halle. - He wrote the section on locomotor disorders in this famous surgical textbook, in which he noted that the improvement after forcible 'reduction' of congenital dislocation of the hip was not necessarly due to actual reposition of the femoral head. He desribed 'caries sicca', a slow dry tuberculous destruction of bone without caseation, he also seems to have described acute transient synovits of the hip in children, and Key credited him with first distinguishing the joint affections of haemophilia from rheumatism. - David Le Vay.

        Only weeks after cessation of the final hostilities of the Civil War, James Longstreet writes to his old friend Ulysses Grant, advocating a pardon for a fellow former Confederate officer, invoking the "Amnesty Proclamation of President Lincoln of 1863"

      "Fine content Autograph Letter Signed, ""J Longstreet,"" 2 pages, 8"" x 10"" in pencil, Macon, Mississippi, August 30, 1865, to Lieutenant General Ulysses S. Grant appealing to him to recommend a pardon for a former Confederate officer. Tears expertly repaired and marginal losses in-filled, light toning, else very good condition. Longstreet writes in full: ""I take the liberty to address you in behalf of Maj. T.K Jackson of the late Confederate Army. He, like most of the Army Officers from the Southern States, resigned at the beginning of the war and returned to his state. This step was taken under the conviction that his services and allegiance were due to his state. I think that I can safely assure you that he was always a national, rather than a sectional, man, and had he been in a position to do so would have made any sacrifice for the safety and honor of the country. If he has been misguided he has committed error that was common to one half of the world, and those who were called upon to determine it, have already grievously answered it. Before I left the old Army, I asked some officers from the northern states, who advised me not to resign, whether they would resign if their states had done a mine had done. They invariably admitted that they would return to their states. Yet all of these officers have served in your army during the war and some with considerable distinction. And are accepted as the truest and bravest in your great army. Let me appeal to you then to determine whether there is justice or honor in pursuing a fellow for whose only crime is error of judgment, and who now sues for pardon. Besides, it is my humble opinion that the terms granted by you at the surrender of Genl. Lee, extended, to all of us, the benefits of the Amnesty Proclamation of President Lincoln of 1863. Those terms were approved by President Lincoln and are therefore irrevocable."" Longstreet was writing with his left hand as his right arm had been temporarily paralyzed following a wound he received at the Battle of the Wilderness in May 1864. Although he rejoined Lee's Army of Northern Virginia within several months (learning to ride a horse with his left hand), he did not regain the use of his right hand for several years after the war's conclusion. Jackson obliged Longstreet's request and had a copy made that he returned for a signature. When Longstreet's final letter reached Grant in October 1865, the general endorsed the recommendation to the Attorney General, requesting that a ""pardon be speedily granted..."" to Jackson. After which Grant went a step further and endorsed an argument Longstreet presented in his final letter advocating clemency for officers who had resigned their commissions at the opening of the war: ""I think it is now time when some pardons should be extended to officers who left the old Army. As a rule they are a class who will keep any obligation...."" Unfortunately for Jackson, the pardon was delayed for several months as his case languished amidst the crush of other amnesty claims. Finally, on February 14, 1867, Attorney General Henry Stanbery recommended that Jackson be pardoned. President Johnson granted the pardon the following day. (NARA M619. Letters received by the Adjutant General's Office, 1860-70, during and after the Civil War period. Roll 0032, File J85, NARA Cat ID: 300368). A copy of Grant's endorsement, together with a copy of Longstreet's final letter are included for reference. James Longstreet and Ulysses Grant were fellow West Point classmates, both graduating in 1843. Following school, the two remained close, serving together for sometime at Jefferson Barracks, Missouri. A few years on, Longstreet attended Grant's 1848 wedding in St. Louis. During the Civil War, Grant and Longstreet faced each other at the Wilderness in 1864 where the latter received the wound to his right arm. Following the war Longstreet remained close to Grant endorsing him for president in 1868 (and attending his inauguration) and earning the distinction of the only former senior Confederate officer to join the Republican Party. Thomas Klugh Jackson (1828-1902), born and raised in South Carolina, entered the United States Military Academy at West Point in July 1844 receiving his second lieutenant's commission in 1849. He served in several posts including Texas and New Mexico, including service with the U.S. Boundary Commission and the 8th U.S. Infantry (where he served alongside Longstreet). Rising to first lieutenant in 1855, he did a brief stint at West Point teaching infantry tactics before moving to Texas where he worked as a recruiter. At the outbreak of the war, Jackson obtained commission from the State of South Carolina and resigned his U.S. commission on April 1, 1861. During the Civil War he served as Albert Sidney Johnston's chief commissary before being captured at Fort Donelson. Following his exchange, Jackson continued service as a commissary first in Gainesville, Alabama and later in Grenada Mississippi. Following the war he settled in Gainesville as a merchant and a farmer. "

Cape Cod, which is considered one of the author's happiest texts, Thoreau applies his keen sense of observation and affinity for nature to the people and scenery of the Massachusetts's landscape.. 1st Edition.

        [MANUSCRIPT LETTER, SIGNED BY GEN. P.G.T. BEAUREGARD TO GEN. ROBERT E. LEE, GIVING A BLEAK ASSESSMENT OF THE CONDITION OF CONFEDERATE FORCES, AND PREPARING FOR THE COMING ATTACK ON MOBILE, ALABAMA. WITH LEE'S AUTOGRAPH RESPONSE OF 100 WORDS ON THE FOURTH PAGE, WRITTEN IN HIS OWN HAND AND SIGNED BY HIM]

      Charlotte, N.C. & Petersburg, Va. March 9 & March 15, 1865.. [4]pp. manuscript letter from Beauregard to Lee in a secretarial hand, signed by Beauregard on the fourth page. With Lee's autograph response and signature on the fourth page as well. Two old horizontal folds, with neat splits along the folds which have been expertly mended. Small tear in lower foredge of both leaves, affecting five words of text, also expertly repaired. Paper tanned and with some moderate staining. Encased in plexi. An outstanding letter to General Robert E. Lee, with Lee's decisive reply written in his own hand and signed by him on the fourth page. This letter was sent to Lee at his headquarters in Petersburg, Virginia, from Gen. P.G.T. Beauregard at Charlotte, North Carolina, and explains in stark terms the desperate condition and lack of funds of the Confederate Army a month before Lee's surrender at Appomattox. Lee responds that he will contact the Secretary of War to seek much needed funds, and also gives further orders regarding Confederate preparations for the coming assault on Mobile, Alabama. Beauregard's letter is written in a secretarial hand and is signed by him on the fourth page, just above Lee's autograph reply and signature. Beauregard writes that the Army is in dire need of money in order to pay the troops, as well as the railroads and steamboats they have been using for transportation. He goes to state that the failure to pay the troops is making them demoralized and hard to control. Beauregard also relays the instructions he has given to Gen. Richard Taylor, who, along with Nathan Bedford Forrest, was preparing to fight Union forces in Alabama. By this point in the war the Confederacy was in a heavily defensive position, with Sherman marching north through the Carolinas, the line of the James at Petersburg and Richmond under threat, and a Union attack on Mobile expected. Beauregard writes: "General Taylor reports from Meridian on the 14th ulto. that one of the greatest causes of difficulty in his department is the want of money necessary to defray its current expenses. The arrearages on the part of the Government to Rail Roads, Steam Boats and Troops, for services already rendered & to citizens for produce &c long since delivered, have made them lose all faith in the promises of Government officials and loath to sell to or make a fight for the Government. The failure to furnish promptly the necessary funds, to pay the Troops, has made them dissatisfied demoralized and exceedingly difficult to control." Beauregard writes that Taylor says that unless measures are adopted "to correct the evil effects it has produced, that all military operations in his Department must stop." Beauregard then reports Taylor's views on the Union Army's next moves: "He states that the enemy continues to concentrate on the lower Mississippi and is evidently about ready to move. He thinks Mobile will be the objective point. The enemy will probably have sufficient force to invest that place and General Taylor is now making every effort to put a sufficient quantity of supplies there, to enable the Garrison - which, with recent additions made to it, is sufficient to man the works - to hold out until operations in Carolina will permit the Army to return to its relief and raise the Siege. This hope is, I think no longer to be entertained." Beauregard tells Lee that he has instructed Taylor "that the main roads leading, from Tennessee River, into Alabama, be obstructed and sufficient garrisons be placed at Selma and to the other more important points, to protect them from mere Cavalry Raids. The small force at his disposal, will not permit him, however, to hope to defend those points against any attacks more formidable than Cavalry Raids." Beauregard closes by writing Lee that "Gen'l. Taylor states that Maj. General Forrest is actively engaged in collecting and reorganizing the Cavalry, which is much scattered and of course reduced after its [?] campaign." After a string of important successes, Gen. Nathan Bedford Forrest's forces would finally be overwhelmed at Selma a few weeks after Beauregard wrote this letter to Lee. Lee's autograph response and signature are written on the lower two- thirds of the final page of the letter, below Beauregard's signature. Lee's dates his message 11am on March 15, 1865, and writes: "Reply submitted to the Honble. Sec. of War, in the hopes that something may be done to relieve G. Taylor's financial embarrassments. I see no prospect of the garrison in Mobile, provided that place is [?] being relieved by the Army of Tennessee & have advised against that course. I have recommended that Genl. Taylor unite his troops & keep an army in the field sufficient to cope with the enemy & fight him in detail. I think any other course will ensure the capture of his troops. I hope this plan will meet with the approbation of the Dept. R.E. Lee Gen'l." The Union Army mounted its attack on the important port of Mobile on March 25th and took control of the city on April 2nd, a day before Union forces occupied Richmond and Petersburg, Virginia. An important communication between one of his leading generals and Robert E. Lee in the waning days of the Confederacy, with a significant note written and signed by him, accompanying a dire report on the prospects of Confederate forces.

One of Only 2,000 Copies Printed!!! ATTRIBUTES: A Charming, sleek original beaded brown cloth cover design with stamped borders, pretty gold binding, brown end pages and a Great Travelogue from the Legendary Author!!! SUMMARY: In the plants, animals, topography, weather, and people of Cape Cod, Thoreau finds 'another world' Encounters with the ocean dominate this book, from the fatal shipwreck of the opening chapter to his later reflections on the Pilgrims' landing and reconnaissance. Along the way, Thoreau relates the experiences of fishermen and oystermen, farmers and salvagers, lighthouse-keepers and ship captains, as well as his own intense confrontations with the sea as he travels the land's outermost margins. Chronicles of exploration, settlement, and survival on the Cape lead Thoreau to reconceive the history of New England - and to recognize the parochialism of history itself. BACKGROUND: Henry David Thoreau (July 12, 1817 – May 6, 1862) was an American author, poet, philosopher, polymath, abolitionist, naturalist, tax resister, development critic, surveyor, historian, and leading transcendentalist. He is best known for his book Walden, a reflection upon simple living in natural surroundings, and his essay Resistance to Civil Government (also known as Civil Disobedience), an argument for disobedience to an unjust state. CONDITION: Condition is Good+/Very Good. Some wear to edges, little to boards, slight lean inward/right to the front board, some glue to inner spine, most pages are very good, light blemish to upper right margin at edge in beginning, couple tiny black dots at very edge of a few pages, blemish to upper/lower margins of ads, hinges/text block are very good for 150 years old!!!

        Collection of 17 reports concerning the Maori Wars, Land Settlements, and the Administration of Sir George Grey

      Auckland: Government printer 1861, 1865. Foolscap folio, some tables and a coloured folding map, occasional foxing and browning, occasional contemporary notes and marginalia in ink; very good condition overall, bound in later quarter polished calf with labels. Sir George Grey and the New Zealand Wars. An engaging collection of 17 official reports and papers dating from Sir George Grey's second term as Governor of New Zealand, a formative period for European-Maori relations in New Zealand's history. Grey had been recalled after a controversial tenure as governor of the Cape Colony and High Commissioner of South Africa. An able self-promoter, Grey had offered to return in the hope that his rapport with the Maori would enable him to quell the emerging troubles and took little time in maligning the efforts of his predecessor Thomas Gore Brown. Grey was an able negotiator, but his intentions were suspected both by the Maori and the British commander, Lieutenant-General Duncan Cameron, who acted with great caution following his efforts to defeat the Maori in southern Taranaki. Cameron (whose report On the Native Insurrection is included here) suspected Grey and the government of trying to use the British Army to acquire Maori land. On one occasion, at Weraroa, Grey took to the field himself and, with a small force of colonial troops and 'friendly' Maori, captured a native supply depot, which the Maori promptly evacuated. This was hailed, not least by Grey, as a famous victory. The papers collected here begin with the Auckland printed Native Addresses of Welcome continuing with Reports on the state of Maori relations and finish with Wellington published Papers on The supply of ammunition to rebel natives and Murder of the Rev. Carl Sylvius Volkner by the Hau Hau Fanatics with page references of the Maori-translated passages in an early hand. Of special interest is the folding coloured map showing the proposed system of roads and settlements for military defence of the North Island, included as an integral part of the report titled Memorandum on Roads and Military Settlements in the Northern Island (1863).A full listing of contents, in order of binding in this volume:Native Addresses of Welcome to Sir George Grey.

        Catecismo de Perseveranca

      Porto - Manoel Jos Ferreira 1865 - Asummary of the principles of Catholicism, from the origins of the religion to the time of the series' publications. With reference to the social, political, dogmatic, historical, moral, liturgical and philosophical influences of the Catholic religion, translated from the French of Abb Gaume. Jean-Joseph Gaume (1802-1879) was a French Roman Catholic theologian and author. Gaume wrote numerous books treating of theology, history, and education. As a cure to what he saw as a rise in paganism after the Renaissance, it was necessary to devise a new method of moulding childhood and youth; this was to consist in catechetical instruction and the exclusion of pagan authors from classical studies. In support of this method he wrote Catchisme de Persvrance, ou Expos de la Religion depuis l'origine du monde jusqu' nos jours (1854), La Religion et l'Eternit (1859) andTrait de l'Esprit Saint (1864). To this series of works belong his Manuel du Confesseur (1*54) and l'Horloge de la Passion (1857), which he translated from St. Alphonsus Liguori. In Portugese. With vignette illustrations. Volumes I-IV and VI-X of a ten volume set only (volume V absent). Condition: In tree calf bindings. Externally smart, though some light rubbing in places (particularly the spine label of volumes VII and IX). Front board of volume I warped. Internally, firmly bound.

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.

        Runa.

      En skrift för Nordens fornvänner, utgiven af Richard Dybeck. (1)-2 samlingen. Stockholm, J. & A. Riis, 1865. Folio. 102 s.+ 23 litogr. planscher, varav 2 i färg och 9 tonade; 42,+ 11-16 s.+ 8 litogr. planscher, varav 2 i färg. Liten fläck s. 49 i första delen. Samtida svart hfrbd, guldornerad rygg och blåa marmorerade pärmpapper, handskriven nummerlapp på främre pärmen, nött övre kapitäl med liten skada. Fiske, Runic literature, s. 20. Montelius 310-311. Allt som utkom av Richard Dybecks (1811-77) sista fortsättning på sin periodiska följetong "Runa", som tidigare utkommit i olika serier åren 1842-50. Denna sista är dock i helt annat format och utseende än de tidigare och även med annat namn. Första delen utkom i sex häften och den andra i tre. Den innehåller liksom de tidigare "Runa" en blandning av fornminnen, runstenar, folksånger med musik, folkdräkter och andra minnen från skilda delar av Sverige. Övriga Norden verkar - trots titelns ändring från "Fäderneslandets fornvänner" till Nordens fornvänner" - inte vara representerade. Färgbilderna är litograferade av Strömmer, annars är en mängd olika litografer inblandade. Färgbilderna föreställer "Glasruta med inbränd målning. Från 1300 talet", "Skogjänta. Jerfsö socken Helsingland", "Öja buss i vinterdrägt (1750)", "väggmålning i Wästerås domkyrka"
