        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."

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.

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]

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]

        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]

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

      Bonn, 25. V. 1865. - [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. - ge Gewicht in Gramm: 500 [Attributes: Signed Copy]

      Quer-4. 41 Blatt (davon 39 faksimiliert). Wertvoller, blauer Lederhandeinband der Zt. auf 5 Bünden mit goldgepr. Titel auf Rücken u. Vorderdeckel, Filetenvergoldung der Zwischenbünde, goldgepr. Deckelrahmen und Innenkantenvergoldung in Klappkassette mit stummen Leinenrücken und marmorierten Überzugspapier. Lediglich Kasette etw. abgerieben u. mit einigen wenigen Kratzspuren, ansonsten tadellos und beinahe unberührt. Deutsch 759. Erste Ausgabe des vollständigen Faksimiles von Schuberts Sinfonie Nr.7, die als sein berühmtestes Werk auf symphonischem Gebiet gilt. Das bald unter dem Beinamen Unvollendete eingebürgerte Werk ist nur als Fragment erhalten und wurde erst am 17. Dezember 1865 uraufgeführt. Die erste Veröffentlichung erschien 1867 bei Spina (Wien).Die Reinschrift wurde - so die Datierung auf dem Titelblatt - am 30. Oktober 1822 begonnen. Die beiden ersten Sätze sind vollständig aufgezeichnet. Von einem 3. Satz liegt noch eine Seite (mit neun Takten) vor, die restlichen Blätter fehlen. Der Grad der Ausarbeitung lässt jedoch vermuten, dass auch dieser Satz vollständig ausgeführt vorlag. Es handelt sich nämlich (trotz einiger Korrekturen) bei jenen 70 Seiten um eine Reinschrift, der bereits umfangreiche Arbeiten vorausgegangen sein müssen. Soweit noch erhalten, sind von diesen Aufzeichnungen sechseinhalb Seiten eines autographen Klavierparticells angehängt es liegt hier als das damals gesamte bekannte Material zu Schuberts berühmtester Sinfonie vor. - "Der Autograph von Franz Schuberts H-moll-Sinfonie (Unvollendete) wurde im Auftrag des Drei Masken Verlages A.-G., München im Frühjahre 1923 erstmalig vollständig reproduziert. Diese Ausgabe enthält außer der Partitur auch die autographen Skizzen Schuberts zum ersten, zweiten und dritten Satz, soweit sie erhalten sind.

Photographer's studio stamp to verso. 4 x 2 1/2 inches. Grant wears a black crepe mourning band in this iconic portrait taken by Gutekunst in April 1865, shortly after both Lee's surrender to Grant at Appomattox Courthouse and Lincoln's assassination. The photograph was presented to William Franklin Raynolds (1820-1894), who was in the same class as Grant at West Point, graduating fifth in 1843. (Grant was 21st, of 39.) Raynolds served in the Mexican-American War and the Civil War, and most famously led the 1859-60 U.S. Army expedition to the headwaters of the Yellowstone River. In 1867, President Grant promoted Raynolds by brevet to Brigadier General, retroactive to March 1865, "for meritorious services, in the field, during the rebellion"

        Abraham Lincoln Mourning Badge

      1865 - Mourning Badge. April-June 1865. 2 1/4 x 6 1/4 in. A 5/8 inch (16 mm) circular ferrotype image of Abraham Lincoln with "Lincoln" printed above, flanked by small red foil inserts, in a beveled brass frame, with attached stickpin, backed by a mourning rosette of red, white, blue, and black silk with a pair of black ribbons below. Some wear to blue ribbon, but the portrait is clear and bold. Historical BackgroundThe assassination of Abraham Lincoln on April 14, 1865, shocked the nation and the world. Killed in a theatre on Good Friday, on the heels of the fall of the Confederate capital and the surrender of Robert E. Lee's Army of Northern Virginia, the first assassination of an American president instantly turned joy in the northern states and among freedpeople in the South into mourning. Even those who opposed Lincoln politically were shocked by the act and the related near-fatal attack on Secretary of State William H. Seward. White southerners, fearing a more vindictive North led by President Andrew Johnson, also mourned publicly, though many privately rejoiced.After lying in state in Washington, Lincoln's body departed Washington on April 21, to travel nearly 1,700 miles through seven states to Springfield, Illinois, in a near reversal of his inaugural trip five years earlier. Stopping in Baltimore, Harrisburg, Philadelphia, New York, Albany, Buffalo, Cleveland, Columbus, Indianapolis, Chicago, and finally Springfield, Lincoln's body lay in state in each major city as tens of thousands of mourners filed past the open coffin. Along the rail route, thousands more waited in rain and sunshine, darkness and daylight, to watch the train pass and to pay their respects to their wartime leader.Many mourners draped their homes in black crepe and wore mourning badges like the one offered here to express their sorrow for the nation's loss.

        Small archive pertaining to Captain James S. Johnson and the U.S. Hospital Steamer Ginnie Hopkins

      St. Louis, 1865. Very good. This lot contains four items: 1) Captain Johnson's manuscript Honorable Discharge from federal service, dated 12 September 1865 (approximately 6" x 8"), 2) A letter of recommendation dated September 12th 1865 at St. Louis, Missouri for Captain Johnson that testifies to his integrity, morality, and steadfastness during "perilous service," signed by the Surgeon in Charge of the U.S. Hospital Steamer Ginnie Hopkins (approximately 8" x 10"), 3) A cdv of Captain Johnson (identified in pencil on the reverse) in civilian clothes taken at "Mansfield's City Gallery, Opp. Entrance to Planters House, St. Louis, MO," and 4) A cdv of an army hospital steamer, presumably the U.S. Hospital Steamer Ginnie Hopkins at a levee, probably on the Mississippi. The items come from one of Johnson's descendants, and all of them are in nice shape. The manuscript documents have expected storage folds with some minor splitting. The cdvs have rounded corners and the hospital ship image has some minor foxing. The birth of the hospital ship was a direct result of the Union Army's experience in the Western Theater of the Civil War. While the river-based transportation network of the Midwest was incredibly important, military surgeons were well aware that stagnant pond, backwaters, and levies could be breeding grounds for disease and infections. Initially, the Quartermaster Corps was tasked with using river boats to evacuate the sick and wounded, however medical missions were prioritized well below the movement of troops, weapons, ammunition, and supplies. Eventually, the Union Medical Director, J. Simons received approval from Major General Henry Hallack, the commander of the Department of the Missouri, to charter and outfit a fleet of steamboats dedicated solely to the transport of sick and wounded. The first hospital ship, the Nashville, began service in February of 1862, and others soon followed. The vessels, which were kept in almost continuous operation, generally held four 100-bed wards, each staffed by a medical officer, a wardmaster, and six or seven mostly male nurses. Following the war, Johnson returned to his home in the Franford neighborhood of Philadelphia and established a very successful upholstery business. He was a well-known and highly respected amateur naturalist and a noted amateur entomologist (authoring several scholarly articles on Catocala moths) and ornithologist (collecting over 10,000 specimens of nests and eggs from around the world). Very scarce. As of 2017, no records for other Civil War hospital steamer ephemera or photographs are recorded at ABPC or the Rare Book Hub. Nothing similar for sale in the trade, and OCLC lists two physical hospital ship photographs and six letters, diaries, and memoirs written by patients.

        Abraham Lincoln, The Nations Martyr, Assassinated April 14th 1865

      New York: Currier & Ives, 1865. unbound. Original color lithograph. Sheet measures 18" x 13.5" This 1865 portrait of Abraham Lincoln was issued by Currier and Ives just after the president was assassinated on April 14, 1865. Based on a photograph taken in February 1864 by Anthony Berger, the 'rush' print was issued by Currier and Ives as a tribute to the former President available to mourners all across America. Many prints such as these were issued by Currier and Ives, with as many as a dozen subtle variations in costume and hair detail. Some even include Lincoln facing the opposite direction. This portrait features Lincoln looking left. The print is in good condition with minor foxing at places. Currier & Ives called themselves the "Printmakers to the People" and they produced thousands of images that chronicled the growth of the United States. Founded in 1834, Currier & Ives produced high quality lithographs until the business closed in 1907.
