        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.

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.

        Juive d&#39;Alger

      Paris: Published by A. Cadart et Luquet, 79, rue de Richelieu, 1865. This stunning image is a rich proof impression of Delacroix&#39;s famous print, "Juive d&#39;Alger." In early 1832 Delacroix visited North Africa. He accompanied his friend the Count de Mornay on his good-will mission to the Sultan of Morocco, Abd-er-Rahman II. This experience had a drastic influence on his art, introducing an edge of brilliant realism into his majestic paintings and bold engravings. He filled countless sketchbooks with drawings and observations of Arab life and gathered a wealth of ideas that served him for the rest of his life. This sumptuous etching is inspired by Delacroix&#39;s travels in North Africa, and is considered one of his greatest prints. Assigned to the delegation as dragoman was Abraham-Ben-Chimol of Tangiers, a Jew who introduced Delacroix to his wife and daughter. Delacroix was greatly influenced by this encounter and he did a number of images depicting young Jewish women in simple interiors. This breathtaking image depicts a young Jewish woman in traditional dress, seated in a simple room; she is accompanied by an Algerian woman who is seated on the floor beside her. The leader of the French Romantic movement, Delacroix is widely considered to be one of the greatest French painters in history, but he is also one the most hailed printmakers of the modern age. The simple lines and bold textures of this monumental print delineate Delacroix&#39;s genius, and distinguish him as a true master of his art. This is an exceptional early impression of this important print, executed before the published title and publication details were added. Included in one of the first collections of the Society de Aqua-Fortistes publications by Cadart, this print is extremely rare in this early state. With its rich dark tones and fresh details, this is a magnificent example of Delacroix&#39;s work and a true collectors item. Between 1862 and 1866 the Societe des Aqua-Fortistes produced a five-volume collection of artists&#39; etchings entitled "Euax-Fortes Modernes." Printed on laid paper made especially for the series, this outstanding collection is one of the seminal publications to spring out of the etching revival in France. The Societe des Aqua-Fortistes was the French equivalent of the Etching Club in England and similarly it aimed to produce a collection of high quality etchings by the leading artists of the period. Like the Etching Club, the Societe des Aqua-Fortistes sought to raise the prestige of the medium from a reproductive technique to a fine art. Although the etching revival began somewhat earlier in England, the French movement exerted a far greater influence on the medium, and included a wider range of prominent artists. The Barbizon painters were among the earliest French artists to participate in the etching revival, and their superb prints helped raise the medium to new heights of genius. This unique publication, which included works by Manet, Corot, and Delacroix, is an outstanding example of fine art printing at its best Delteil, Le Peintre-Gravure Illustre , vol. III, no. 18, i/iii; Beraldi, Les Gravures du XIXe Siecle, Guide de l&#39;Amateur d&#39;Estampes Modernes , vol. V, p. 158, i/ii. Benezit, Dictionnaire des Peintres, Sculpteurs, Dessinateurs et Graveurs ; Biographical information has been taken from the website of the National Gallery in Washington, and The Metropolitan Museum in New York. Etching. Printed on watermarked aqua-fortistes laid paper. State i/iii, before letters with artist&#39;s name and date engraved in the upper left corner of plate. Monogram in upper right corner of plate. Full sheet in excellent condition. Image size: 7 7/8 x 6 1/6inches.

No Justice or other officer who is included in any of the fourteen excluded classes of the President's amnesty proclamation, will be permitted to take the oaths prescribed, or enter on the performance of duty, until a pardon shall have been received by him from the President. And the oath of amnesty is not to be administered to any one who is not disposed to take it willingly and cheerfully. If any Justice named in the commission hesitates to take the oath, it will be your duty to withhold it from him .
