        Documents attesting to the service of the Maryland slave, Algy Stanley, in the 7th United States Colored Infantry

      Maryland and Virginia, 1865. Very good. This document group include Private Stanley's discharge from Company F, 7th Regiment, U. S. Colored Troops Volunteers, a power of attorney with which Stanley appointed a lawyer to act on his behalf to secure his enlistment and discharge bounties, and the receipt for the payment of those bounties. One of the documets is franked with a 2-cent orange Internal Revene stamp (Scot #R15), and another is franked with a pair of 25-cent orange Power of Attorney revenue stamps (Scott #R48). The documents are in good shape; worn at the edges. The upper left hand corner of all three have been glued together. Although Maryland was a slave state, it never seceeded from the Union, so its slaves were not freed with the Emancipation Proclamation. The could instead, however, earn their freedom by enlisting in the Army with or without their masters consent. In September of 1863, the War Department authorized Colonel William Birney to raise an an infantry regiment, the 7th Regiment of United States Colored Troops, from the slaves an free blacks of Maryland. Men who enlisted were to receive a bounty of $50 for signing up, and if they completed their tour sucessfully, they were to receive an additional discharge bonus of $50. To make the loss of a slave more palatable, slave owner's who could prove their ownership of an enlistee were also entitle to a $100 bounty. Stanley was the property of Thomas J. Lecompte when he enlisted on 27 September 1863. Initially the regiment was sent to Florida and South Carolina where its daily routine of garrison, guard, and labor duties was occassional interupted with a skirmish or two. in Florida and South Carolina. However in August of 1864, the 7th moved into central Virginia and served in the seige operations against Petersburg and Richmond. Stanley was wounded on August 25th during this campaign and subsequently hospitalized at Fortress Monroe where he mostly remained until discharged in 1865. In addition to the the three original documents in the grouping, I've included photostat excerpts from Stanley's official Army record as well as Lecompte's Evidence of Title and ownership statement documenting that Stanley was his property at the time of enlistement. Colored Troops discharges are relatively uncommon, however they turn up regulary at auction. Almost all, however are for African-Americans who were free men before the war began or who were freed as the result of the Emancipation Proclamation. Documents for actual slaves who enlisted from the slave states that remained in the Union (Maryland, Kentucky, and Missouri) are very scarce. As of 2017, there are none for sale in the trade and no auction records at OCLC or the Rare Book Hub. Although there are no similar institutional records per OCLC, OCLC does identify "one certificate . . . freeing a slave and his family as a reward for his service in the Confederate army.," which is located at the New York Historical Society.

        Albumen Photograph

      np: np, 1865. EXTREMELY RARE LARGE-FORMAT ICONIC ALBUMEN PHOTOGRAPH OF ABRAHAM LINCOLN AS PRESIDENT. Captured by Anthony Berger, head photographer and manager of Mathew Brady's Washington D.C. Studio, this image persists as one of the most iconic and well-recognized photos of Lincoln. Upon achieving fame as the nation's first photojournalist for his gripping images of the Civil War battlefield, Brady set up studios in both New York and Washington D.C. so that he could photograph famous citizens, presidents, and politicians. However, he did little of the photographing himself, instead employing men like Anthony Berger and successor Alexander Gardner to create what would become some of the most recognized photos of the sixteenth president.Taken on February 9, 1864, this image--dubbed 0-92 by Anthony Berger-- is one of many famous photographs to come out of the February photo session. Other photographs include Lincoln with young son Tad on his lap and Lincoln in profile, a photo which was used when designing the penny. This photo, however, was known as the five-dollar bill pose; it was used to produce an oval engraving of the president, which was reproduced on the old five-dollar bill printed from 1914 until 2008.Robert Todd Lincoln--the president's eldest son and U.S Secretary of War during the Garfield administration-- sent a copy of this photo to renowned collector Frederick Meserve nearly thirty years after his father's death, commenting:   "I have always thought the Brady photograph of my father, of which I attach a copy, to be the most satisfactory likeness of him."This photo, like many images of Lincoln, was innumerably replicated, but most significantly by Anthony Bicknell Carpenter in his painting The First Reading of the Emancipation Proclamation Before the Cabinet, an image which is still displayed in the United States Capitol. The painter spent six months at the white house completing the painting, an artist-in-residency which he later wrote about in his 1866 memoir. Additionally, many used this photo as inspiration when commemorating the president in posthumous lithographic and print reproductions.This albumen photograph bears the imprint "Brady & Co., Entered according to Act of Congress, by Brady & Co., in the year 1865, in Clerk's Office of District Court for District of Columbia. Washington" and was almost certainly printed in 1865, the year Lincoln was assassinated.Unique because of its large size and lack of vignette, this photo is regarded as one of the original, unretouched albumen prints that provided visual fodder for countless paintings, lithographs, and CDV's in the years post-Civil War.In a very early frame under UV-protected museum glass.Size: Approx. 5.25x7.375 inches (photograph alone); 9.5x7 inches (framed).Albumen print. Housed in early - possibly contemporary - elegant wood frame. Card mount reads "Brady & Co., Entered According To Act Of Congress, By Brady & Co., In The Year 1865, In Clerk's Office Of District Court For District Of Columbia. Washington." A few dark spots; otherwise in nearly perfect condition. A CLASSIC LINCOLN PHOTO, RARE IN SUCH LARGE, UNRETOUCHED FORMAT. FINE CONDITION. Fine.

        Untersuchungen über Gehirn und Rückenmark des Menschen und der Säugetiere.

      Hrsg. u. bevorwortet v. Max Schultze nach dem Tode des Verf. - Braunschweig, 1865, 8, XVII pp., (1 Bl.), 318 pp., 1 Anz.pp., mit 6 gefalt. lith. Taf. in Imperial-Oktav gezeichnet von O.F.C. Deiters, Halbledereinband der Zeit. Rare First Edition! - Ex copy of Prof. Johannes Friedrich Miescher (1844 - 1895) the well known Swiss physician and biologist. He was the first researcher to isolate and identify nucleic acid."Otto Friedrich Carl Deiters (1834-1863) holds the position of "Privatdozent der Medizin" when he dies at 29 years of age. His Studies on brain and spinal cord of man and mammals are found in his personal estate. They are in the form of an unfinished manuscript.. Deiters' outstanding text begins with the following words: I have put myself to the task of making the central organs of the nervous system the subject of a thorough analysis in a comprehensive series of investigations... Deiters' histologic methods include cutting of thin sections and isolation of individual cells as well as a large battery of chemical pre- and post-treatments. His beautiful drawings betray, in addition to artistic talent, remarkable mastery of these methods his technique of isolating (micro-dissecting) individual nerve cells requires an enviable micromanipulatory control of hands, armed only with the teasing tools - needles and the like - of that day. Among the many non-man mammals which Deiters studies, oxen seem to be his favourite subjects. There are not many areas of the central nervous system he does not draw into his investigation. What was the image of truth which emerged? First of all: what, for Deiters, was a nerve cell (Ganglienzelle)? I don't know if there is an absolute defintion however, I call every cell which is continuous with fragments of unequivocal nerve fibers, a nerve cell. He approaches this problem of neuron definition by describing all recognizable (morphologic) properties of those cells which may be assumed to be nerve cells. These properties may then be applied to other cells as criteria of their neuronal identity. Deiters' schematic picture (schematisches Bild) which resulted from this analysis could, in his opinion, be applied to practically all known CNS nerve cells. That part of his picture which is most pertinent to this review can be summarized as follows: the nerve cell is a cell which bears on its soma one axon and several dendrites. This characterization of the nerve cell leaves room for an interesting elaboration. This elaboration was very much part of Deiters' picture. The reason that I treat it separately is that, in retrospect, it constitutes a side-branch of the neuron's ideogenetic tree: it was cut off by students of the nerve cell who came after Deiters. The elaboration is that nerve cells bear a second system of axons which emanate from the dendrites (the first system consists of the one axon which issues from the soma). A summary of the nerve cell compartments as proposed by Deiters shall now be given. The nerve cell body (Körper der Zelle) contains a nucleus with a nucleolus. The remainder of the soma is an irregularly shaped mass of protoplasma of granular appearance. From the fairly smooth contour of the soma there arise, in a gradual transition, a variable number of dendrites. Because of the great similarity between dendrites and soma (Deiters emphasizes this point) he names them protoplasmic processes (Protoplasmafortsätze). The dendrites repeatedly bifurcate they finally become so thin that they lose themselves in the porous ground-substance they cannot be seen to connect nerve cells with one another. It is impossible to confuse dendrites with axons. Deiters distinguishes two parts of the axon: the axonal process (Nervenfaser- oder Axencylinder-fortsatz) i.e., the portion of the axon seen to be directly attached to the soma and the axon proper (Axencylinder), the more distal, myelinated portion of the axon. The axonal process - always one of its kind to a cell body - is clearly distinct from the protoplasmic processes: among other things, it is far less granular than the dendrites and it is stiffer it is fairly straight, always unbranched and has a smooth contour. The point of emanation of the axonal process is usually on the cell body it may also be on a proximal, stout dendrite branch. The axonal process narrows .. The smallest diameter is reached at a distance which approximately equals the diameter of the cell body. Then the axon becomes wider and assumes its myelin sheath. It is obvious that Deiters, with great clarity, gives the first description of those structures which we now call the initial segment of the axon and the axon neck. (I propose that the somewhat macabre designation axon neck - macabre indeed: where is the head? - be replaced by Deiters' constriction.) One of the similarities between dendrites and somata which Deiters notices may, at first, seem somewhat surprising to us: it is that both of them bear axons. This observation brings us to Deiters' fourth and last nerve cell compartment, the second extensive system of very small axons which are attached to the dendrites. These small axons differ from the large axon which sprouts from the soma, in triangular bases. Only rarely, as Deiters admits, does one see them surrounded with a myelin sheath. Although not explicit, it may be inferred that Deiters conceived these small axons to be only fragments which have one end attached to the dendrite and the other end broken off... Deiters did not depict their (i.e. the second order axons) mode of branching he did depict two such axons which acquire a myelin sheath. I am convinced that Deiters in describing his second system axons has given us an accurate portrayal of boutons terminaux and their pre-terminals. His morphologic interpretation diverges from ours: these small axons form, for him, a second system of egressing axons (ein zweites System abgehender Axencylinder) (my spacing). His functional interpretation converges with ours: these small axons may very well have the office of interconnecting the nerve cells... In ending it should be said that we owe to Deiters' unique work a concept of the nerve cell which - one century old - comes very close to our own. All nerve cell studies of any significance performed since, have been influenced by the image of truth he left. Within the subsequent twenty-five years Deiters' image was to undergo some modifications and the nerve cell in which we now believe then emerged."

RARE FIRST EDITON - CLASSIC PIONEERWRK OF BONE SURGERY! Content: Die Krankheiten und Verletzungen der Knochen Die Krankheiten und Verletzungen der Gelenke Die Krankheiten der Schleimbeutel und Schleimscheiden Die Krankheiten und Verletzungen der Muskeln und Sehnen Tenotomie und Myotomie. Richard von Volkmann (1830-1889) introduced Listers principles in Germany, espcially in the surgical treatment of bones and joints, a subject of particular interest. 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.

        Etudes sur le probleme de la marche du cavalier au jeu des echecs, et solution du probleme des huit dame

      Paris: A Cretaine, Libraire, 1865 11+42+[19 plates]+[1 blank]+[6 plates (2 folding)] pages with tables and diagrams. Octavo (9" x 5 1/2") bound in wrappers with original spine and covers tipped on. (Bibliotheca Van der Linde-Niemeijeriana: 4085) First edition.A knight's tour is a sequence of moves of a knight on a chessboard such that the knight visits every square only once. If the knight ends on a square that is one knight's move from the beginning square (so that it could tour the board again immediately, following the same path), the tour is closed, otherwise it is open. The earliest known reference to the knight's tour problem dates back to the 9th century AD. In Rudraá¹­a's Kavyalankara, a Sanskrit work on Poetics, the pattern of a knight's tour on a half-board has been presented as an elaborate poetic figure ("citra-alaá¹...kÄra") called the "turagapadabandha" or 'arrangement in the steps of a horse.' The same verse in four lines of eight syllables each can be read from left to right or by following the path of the knight on tour. Since the Indic writing systems used for Sanskrit are syllabic, each syllable can be thought of as representing a square on a chess board. One of the first mathematicians to investigate the knight's tour was Leonhard Euler. The first procedure for completing the Knight's Tour was Warnsdorf's rule, first described in 1823 by H. C. von Warnsdorf.The purpose of the eight queens' problem is to place eight queens of a chess game on an 8 x 8 chess board without the queens being able to threaten each other in accordance with the chess rules (The color of the parts being ignored). Therefore, two queens should never share the same row, column, or diagonal. This problem belongs to the domain of mathematical problems and not to that of the chess composition. For years, many mathematicians , including Gauss, have worked on this problem, which is a particular case of the generalized problem of n- queens, posited in 1850 by Franz Nauck, and which is to place n queens "free" on a chessboard Of n x n cells. In 1874 S. Gunther proposed a method for finding solutions by employing determinants , and JWL Glaisher refined this approach.Condition:Recased with original publisher's wrappers tipped on to new boards, half title loose else a very good copy.

        The Poetical Works of William Wordsworth. In Six Volumes. A New and Complete Edition.

      Edward Moxon & Co., London 1865 - 6 vol. set. x, 299, xii, 327, xiv, 271, xvi, 292, ix, [3], 394, [4], 453p. 16.5 cm hardcover binding of the original green cloth with impressing on boards and gilt on spines. Bookplates for a "John A. Sellar" affixed to front endpapers. Some penciling and staining to yellow endpapers. Some scuffing to boards with bumping to board corners and to spine extremes. Gold lettering remains bright Occasional foxing to pages, mostly edges, title pages, and endpapers. Text unmarked. This set, dated 1865, is the 1864 reprint of Moxon's 1857 "new" edition of Wordsworth's complete works. The edition includes the Notes dictated by Wordsworth to Miss Fenwick regarding his various poems. However, Wordsworth was aging at the time of his dictation and the notes are not always accurate, demonstrating a disorientation in Wordsworth's memory in his final years. The edition was prepared at a time when most publishers depended upon cheap paper with a high wood-chip content. The fact that this edition remains in such good condition is a testament to Moxon's standards as a publisher of fine books, as well as to its printers, Bradbury and Evans. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Book of Perfumes. With above 250 illustrations by Bourdelin, Thomas, etc.

      London: Chapman and Hall, 1865 - Quarto. Original green pebble grain cloth over bevelled boards, gilt decoration to spine, gilt titles, Rimmel's armorial crest and panelling to covers, white silk moiré endpapers, decoratively gilt-gauffered edges. Slight wear to extremities, occasional light foxing; an excellent copy. Text printed within floral frame on scented pink paper. Frontispiece and 12 wood-engraved plates, 1 in colour, and numerous illustrations in the text. First edition of this historical survey of perfumes and cosmetics by the perfumer Eugène Rimmel, printed on scented rose-tinted paper, "elegantly bound and deliciously perfumed" (The Chemical News and Journal of Industrial Science, 1865, p. 250). This work includes a short summary of the methods of extracting aromas from plants, flowers, and animal products, as well as the principal ingredients in the manufacture of perfume. Rimmel known for his innovation in the field, creating the first "factory-made, non-toxic mascara" and inventing "the 'perfume vaporiser', which he exhibited at the 1862 International Exhibition in South Kensington: a piece of apparatus for diffusing the fragrance of flowers and purifying the atmosphere, it was used on Queen Victoria's yacht as well as at public banquets and in ballrooms, theatres, and sickrooms" (ODNB). "Agreeing with Rousseau that the sense of smell is the sense of imagination, Rimmell claimed that pleasant perfumes exercise a cheering influence on the mind, and refresh the memory, recalling scenes from past life" (ibid.). A work that "not only furnishes food for the mind, but gratifies the eyes and olfactory senses by its beauty and fragrance. Seldom have sense and scents been so happily blended" (The Sporting Review, 1865, p. 471). [Attributes: First Edition]

He is "routinely cited as one of the great 'founding fathers' of prehistoric archaeology; his work brought together an appreciation of time depth and the principles of evolution from Lyell and Darwin with the record of prehistoric stone tools and other implements and their parallels with ethnographic examples" (Cochrane and Gardner, p. 311).

        39 eigenh. Briefe m. Unterschrift.

      Hugstetten, Freiburg u.a., 1851-1865. - Reichsfreiherr Heinrich Bernhard von Andlaw-Birseck war der Sohn des badischen Ministers Reichsfreiherrn Konrad Karl von Andlaw-Birseck (1763-1839) und dessen Ehefrau Sophie von Schakmin. Der badische Diplomat Reichsfreiherr Franz Xaver von Andlaw-Birseck (1799-1876) war sein älterer Bruder. Heinrich Bernhard Reichsfreiherr von Andlaw-Birseck stand 1821-1825 im badischen Militärdienst und machte sich 1835-1866 als Mitglied der Ersten badischen Kammer durch konsequente Vertretung katholischer und feudaler Prinzipien bemerklich; auch agitierte er in Deutschland für die Grundsätze der katholischen Kirche und spielte auf den Wanderversammlungen der katholischen Vereine durch seine populäre Beredsamkeit eine wichtige Rolle. Er starb 3. März 1871 auf seiner Besitzung Hugstetten bei Freiburg. - Andlaw-Birseck schrieb u.a. „Der Aufruhr und Umsturz in Baden, als eine natürliche Folge der Landesgesetzgebung" (Freiburg, 1850), „Priestertum und christliches Leben" (Freiburg, 1865) sowie mehrere Flugschriften polemischen Inhalts. - Der Empfänger der auf Französisch abgefassten Briefe ist Jacques (Jacob) Mislin (1807-1878). Der aus ärmlichen Verhältnissen stammende Mislin konnte dank seines Onkels an der berühmten Lehranstalt von Porrentruy im Schweizer Kanton Bern studieren, wo er nicht viel später auch selbst unterrichten sollte. Der 1830 zum Priester geweihte kath. Theologe wurde 1836 auf Vermittlung des Grafen von Bombelle an den Wiener Hof berufen, wo er einer der Lehrer der Söhne von Erzherzog Franz Karl und Erzherzogin Sophie wurde und damit sowohl den zukünftigen Kaiser Franz Joseph wie auch Erzherzog Ferdinand Maximilian (später Kaiser Max von Mexiko) unterrichtete (u.a. auch in Erdkunde). Vor der Revolution von 1848 unternahm Mislin eine Pilgerreise von Wien über Budapest und Konstantinopel nach Jersusalem. Der danach erschienene Reisebericht wurde in mehrere Sprachen übersetzt und mehrfach nachgedruckt. In den folgenden Jahren leitete er die Bibliothek am Hof der Herzogin von Parma, Erzherzogin Marie Louise, wurde zum Abt von St. Maria von Deg (Ungarn), geheimer Kämmerer u. Hausprälat Papst Pius' XI., Apostolischer Pronotar, Kanoniker der Kathedrale von Großwardein, Träger zahlr. Orden (u.a. von Spanien, Parma u. des Ritterordens vom Heiligen Grab zu Jerusalem) sowie Mitglied zahlr. Akademien. Der Verfasser zahlr. Publikationen und Vertraute des belgischen Königs und des Grafen von Chambord blieb nach der Rückkehr von seiner Pilgerreise in Wien, wo er weiterhin in persönlichem Kontakt mit dem Kaiserhaus stand. - Sprache: Französisch Gewicht in Gramm: 500 [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        An extensive bundle of approximately 200 letters and other communications all addressed to John Irving, a Carlisle stockbroker, from private clients requesting advice on the purchase of shares and bonds, others from commercial correspondents including mining companies, railway developers and banks regarding share prices and investments, and some from agents and brokers, mostly in London.

      Virtually all the letters are dated February 1865 - This is an extraordinary archive illustrating the daily business of trading in stocks and shares of a Victorian stockbroker. London Correspondents> include L. Green & Co. of 113 Fenchurch St; John Patton Junr. & Co. of 147 Fenchurch St; Grierson, Cole & Co. of 1A Princes St; Henry H. Thompson of 17A Telegraph St; John Allan & Sons, 2, Leadenhall St; Charles Alcock & Co.

Of these, the most prolific correspondence was with the London firm of brokers, Henry H. Thompson of 17A Telegraph Street, Moorgate St. E.C. from whom there are no fewer than 23 letters all dated February 1865; 7 letters are from the ship brokers and commission merchants S.H. Angier & Co. of 4 Eastcheap, and 10 from Robinson & Fleming of 21 Austin Friars. Provincial correspondents> include the Carlisle City & District Bank; the Home and Colonial Assurance Co. Ltd., Liverpool; John Wright & Co., ship brokers in Glasgow; Samuel Keith, Shipbroker & commission agent in Belfast; Cockermouth, Keswick & Penrith Railway, Keswick; Whitehaven and Furness Junction Railway, Whitehaven; Cumberland Union Bank; Rigghead Slate Works; Carlisle & Cumberland Bank, Carlisle; Henry Burn, rope & twine maker, Hexham; the North Eastern Railway, York; Maryport and Carlisle Railway, Maryport; Union Iron & Brass Works, Carnarvon; Bahr, Behrend & Co., Liverpool; J. & W. Jackson, timber merchants, Whitehaven; William Thomson & Co., wood merchants, Dumfries; The Lancashire Insurance Company, Maryport; Curry, Weyergan & Co., timber merchants, Newcastle on Tyne; &c. &c. It is amply evident that Irvine's relationship with the London stockbroker Henry H. Thompson was crucial to Irvine's success. there was, it seems, almost a daily exchange of correspondence between Irving and Thompson, the London broker giving detailed reports on the stock market in general and on specific shares in particular, and it was Thompson who brokered purchases and sales of shares for Irvine's clients. It is also evident from this bundle of correspondence that John Irving was not only a stockbroker but also a shipping agent and general all-purpose broker with strong business relationships with several London firms. Judging solely by the evidence from this single month's correspondence, he was hard working, successful and respected, and engaged in February 1865 in an extraordinary range of business.
