        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. Institutional stamps to title pages. Pages are generally bright and clean, with just some light scattered spots inplaces. Overall: VERY GOOD. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

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.

A fascinating and comprehensive work on the life of Josiah Wedgwood (1730-1795) the famous English potter who established the grand firm which carries his name, and who is of particular Australian interest as the creator of the Sydney Cove Medallion.An investigation into the nature of the clay of the Sydney basin had been one of the first requests given to Governor Phillip, and he sent home a series of specimens to Sir Joseph Banks as soon as he was able. Banks was a close associate of Josiah Wedgwood, and some of the clay was immediately dispatched in order to create the Medallion. The medallion was designed by Henry Webber with the final finishing of the moulds done by William Hackwood, Wedgwood's principal modeller. The full title of the medallion is "Hope encouraging Art and Labour, under the influence of Peace, to pursue the employments necessary to give security and happiness to an infant settlement". An engraving of the design adorned the title-page of Phillip's Voyage (1789), and a fine depiction of the Medallion is also included in this work (II, p, 568).Meteyard's work is also of great interest for the number of engravings of cameo portraits which it includes, such as the famous portrait of Sir Joseph Banks as a young man, as well as those of John Fothergill, the artist John Flaxman, and Sir Joshua Reynolds, quite apart from an almost endless array of illustrations of some of Wedgwood's finest work, including one of the famous Portland Vase.The short note signed by Josiah Wedgwood II tipped-on to the verso of the frontispiece is of some interest, being a note about [Thomas] Minton's purchase of some clay at Liverpool, with a note on costs.

The entire front page filled with articles on the tragedy. ""The Great Calamity""; ""The President's Murderer Still at Large""; ""General Grant's Arrival""; ""Demonstrations of Mourning"". 2.) New York Tribune, April 21, 1865, 8pp, folded folio, frontpage articles include ""The President's Assassin"" with information on a $50,000 reward for Booth's capture, as well as the effects of the assassination on various cities and regions. 3.) New York Tribune, April 27, 1865, 8pp, folded folio, frontpage news of Sherman's occupation at Raleigh, The Cortege On Its Way Westward, the Treatment of Secessionists"". 4.) New York Tribune, April 29, 1865, 8pp, folded folio, frontpage news of the surrender of General Johnston, news of Lee's surrender, Rebels giving up. 5.) New York Tribune, May 8, 1865, 8pp, folded folio, frontpage news of the arrest of a conspirator at St. Louis, whereabouts of the head Rebel, continuing news of the assassination. 6.) New York Tribune, May 9, 1865, 8pp, folded folio, frontpage news on Sherman ""His Army Homeward Bound"", enthusiasm of the colored people, ""The Assassination: The Trial to Commence Today"", news from Washington. The New York Tribune was established by Horace Greeley in 1841 and was long considered one of the leading newspapers in the United States. The Tribune was created by Greeley with the hopes of providing a straightforward, trustworthy media source in an era when newspapers such as the New York Sun and New York Herald thrived on sensationalism. Although considered the least partisan of the leading newspapers, the Tribune did reflect some of Horace Greeley's idealist views. During the American Civil War (1861-1865) the tribune was a radical republican newspaper, which supported abolition and subjection of the confederacy instead of negotiated peace. During the first few months of the war, the tribune's ""on to Richmond"" slogan presured Union general Irvin McDowell into advancing on Richmond before his army was ready, resulting in the disaster at the First Battle of Manassas (July 21, 1861). after the failure of the Peninsular Campaign (spring 1862), the tribune pressured president Abraham Lincoln into instating John Pope as commander of the army of the Potomac."

The photograph shows the entire group seated with their shadow puppets and instruments held up against a large white screen, with their backs to the photographer. The photographers of this image were Woodbury and Page. Walter Bentley Woodbury left England in 1852 to join the Australian gold rush. In Melbourne he met James Page and learned the wet-plate collodion method of photography. The two left in 1857 for Batavia (Jakarta) and established their studio, Woodbury & Page, which became the major creator of views in the Dutch West Indies. Woodbury later patented his invention for a permanent photograph printed with inks, called the Woodburytype. 7 1/2 x 10".

        Admiral David D. Porter promotes the purchase of the Island of St. Thomas

      "A scarce imprint relative to William Seward's attempt to purchase the Danish Virgin Island of St. Thomas between 1865 and 1868: ""THE ISLAND OF ST. THOMAS. LETTER OF VICE-ADMIRAL DAVID D. PORTER TO THE SECRETARY OF STATE."" three conjoined pages, front and verso, 8.25"" x 13"", Annapolis, November 6,1867, a transcript of Porter's report to Seward, the strategic advantages of purchasing the island concluded, ""I think St. Thomas is the keystone to the arch of the West Indies; it commands them all. It is of more importance to us than to any other nation, and if Europe was at leasure and its attention not distracted by its own complications, we would not be allowed to get the island on any terms. The chances are that we may not get it yet. The people of St. Thomas may prefer their present independent position to being mixed up with our difficulties."" Lightly toned and stained, small tear, small loss at lower left edge and punch hole at upper edge, both in blank areas, else very good condition.William Seward first began contemplating the idea of purchasing St. Thomas during the Civil War. While the majority of the islands in the West Indies sympathized with the the Confederacy, providing critical ports to blockade runners, the governor of the Danish island of St. Thomas was so friendly to the United States that Union ships could obtain special favors, serenely and openly. The Lincoln Administration was in need of a Caribbean base for refitting and processing of captured prizes, and the Danes were most likely to part with one of their possessions for a price. Seward first broached the subject with the Danish Minster in Washington in January 1865. After two years of negotiations, Denmark agreed to sell the islands of St. John and St. Thomas for $7.5 million with the condition that the islands residents be able to approve the annexation in a vote. St. Thomas was a lucrative free port and Admiral Porter, like many observers saw numerous reasons why the islanders might reject the proposal. Despite these fears, the islanders voted overwhelmingly for annexation. However the purchase was never ratified in the Senate due to the recent purchase of Alaska and the distraction over the Andrew Johnson impeachment. Ulysses S. Grant finally killed the project, pronouncing it ""'a scheme of Sewards,' and would have nothing to do with it.""Both islands (together with St. Croix) became part of the United States in 1917 in exchange for $25 million in gold. The purchase came about after an islander, David Hamilton Jackson, who campaigned against Danish mismanagement of the territory, convinced the King of Denmark government to sell the islands. "

        General Nelson A. Miles, in command of Fort Monroe, reports that ?the prisoner ?Davis? is feeling quite comfortable this morning ... I do not think it possible for him to escape, even if the sentinels are taken out of the front room, he will still be under two locks, aside from the Guard in front of his cell.?

      "Autograph Letter Signed ?Nelson A. Miles? as ?Bvt Maj Gen U.S. Vols / Comdg Dist.,? two conjoined pages, 7.75? x 9.75?. Head Quarters Military District, Fort Monroe, August 22, 1865. To an unnamed General, undoubtedly Assistant Adjutant General Edward D. Townsend to whom Miles sent all his reports about the prisoners and mail to be forwarded. Ink stain at top right of first page. Expertly strengthened on verso at folds. Fine condition.In full, ?I have the honor to state that the prisoner ?Davis? is feeling quite comfortable this morning, complaining a little however of erysipelas in the face and a carbuncle on his leg. I also enclose a communication from [Clement] Clay to the ?Sec of War? together with a letter to his wife which he desires, forwarded. In regard to the Sentinels, when they were taken out of his room he said they did not disturbe or waken him, lately they have been required to make as little noise as possible and not to walk around in the room. I do not think it possible for him to escape, even if the sentinels are taken out of the front room, he will still be under two locks, aside from the Guard in front of his cell.?On May 19, 1865, the propeller vessel ?William P. Clyde? arrived at Hampton Roads, Virginia, with Confederate prisoners aboard including Jefferson Davis and Confederate Senator and diplomatic agent Clement Claiborne Clay. On May 22nd, Major General Nelson A. Miles arrived to take command of Fort Monroe.From ?Prison Life of Jefferson Davis? by Bvt. Lt. Col. John J. Craven, M.D., ?Late Surgeon U.S. Vols., and Physician of the Prisoner during his Confinement in Fortress Monroe, from May 25, 1865, up to December 25, 1865? (New York: G.W. Dillingham Co., 1866): ?The procession into the fort was simple though momentous ... First came Major-General Miles holding the arm of Mr. Davis, who was dressed in a suit of plain Confederate grey, with a grey slouched hat?"always thin, and now looking much wasted and very haggard. Immediately after these came Colonel Prichard [Michigan Cavalry] accompanying Mr. Clay, with a guard of soldiers in their rear ... Mr. Davis was shown into casemate No. 2 and Clay into No. 4, guards of soldiers being stationed in the cells numbered 1, 3, and 5, upon each side of them. They entered; the heavy doors clanged behind them, and in that clang was rung the final knell of the terrible, but now extinct, rebellion ... On the morning of the 23d of May, a yet bitterer trial was in store for the proud spirit ?" a trial severer, probably, than has ever in modern times been inflicted upon any one who had enjoyed such eminence. This morning Jefferson Davis was shackled ... These fetters were of heavy iron, probably five-eighths of an inch in thickness, and connected together by a chain of like weight ... On the morning of May 24th, I was sent for about half-past 8 A.M., by Major-General Miles; was told that State-prisoner Davis complained of being ill, and that I had been assigned as his medical attendant ...?August 21st. ?" Called with Captain Corlis, on the staff of General Miles, Officer of the Day. Prostration increased, and the erysipelas spreading. Deemed it my duty to send a communication to Major-General Miles, reporting that I found the State-prisoner, Davis, suffering severely from erysipelas in the face and head, accompanied by the usual prostration attending that disease. Also that he had a small carbuncle on his left thigh, his condition denoting a low state of the vital forces...? The information in Dr. Craven?s communication to Miles was included by the General in this letter penned the next day.Ellis Paxson Oberholtzer, in ?A History of the United States Since the Civil War? (New York: The Macmillan Company, 1917), wrote about Davis in Fort Monroe. In part, ?The President of the Confederacy suffered from insomnolency, dyspepsia, neuralgia, boils, carbuncles, erysipelas. Never during any night since his incarceration had he slept for two hours continuously. The creaking boots of the sentinels as they paced the floor, even after it was covered with straw matting, the noise as they hailed each other, the light in his room, his nervous and physical diseases, the lack of full opportunity for exercise were noted by the physician, who made so unfavorable a statement that many thought the distinguished culprit could not live for trial for his crimes.? In this letter, General Miles notes that the sentinels are ?required to make as little noise as possible.? For keeping Jefferson Davis shackled in his cell, General Miles was the target of severe criticism, even in the North."
