        Sinfonia in H moll. Wien den 30. Octob. 1822. [Faksimile der Handschrift].

      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. Das Original der Partitur und der Skizzen liegt im Archiv der Gesellschaft der Musikfreunde zu Wien." (Impressum).

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.

        Partridge Shooting

      Currier & Ives, New York 1865 - Hand-colored lithograph. Large folio. Provenance: Donaldson, Lufkin &Jenrette Americana Collection Classic Currier & Ives hunting print by Fanny Palmer Fanny Palmer (1812-1876) was the first woman in the United States to work as a professional artist, and to make a living with her art. She produced more Currier and Ives' prints than any other artist, and she was the only female in a business dominated by men. Painting was not considered a suitable occupation for a woman, nor, of course, was lithography. Hers was a story common for Victorian wives, who were expected to keep house and be supported by their husbands. She however pursued a career in England and eventually in America, virtually supporting her family as her husband sank deeper into alcoholism and then supporting it in fact when he fell to his death on a hotel stairway in 1857. Her shooting prints show a fine understanding of the appeal the sport had for men: with their dogs, shotguns and hunting attire, walking through untamed country with a friend on autumn afternoons. Mrs. Palmer's husband enjoyed shooting fowl, as did Nathaniel Currier, and Palmer's dogs may have modelled for this image. Gale 5114, Peters 108.

        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.

        THE MASTERSHIP AND ITS FRUITS: THE EMANCIPATED SLAVE FACE TO FACE WITH HIS OLD MASTER. A SUPPLEMENTAL REPORT TO HON. EDWIN M. STANTON, SECRETARY OF WAR, BY JAMES MCKAYE, SPECIAL COMMISSIONER.

      New York: Wm. C. Bryant, 1865. New York:: Wm. C. Bryant,. 1865. 38, [2 blank] pp. Original printed front wrapper, else Very Good. McKaye looks at the "great changes which slave society is undergoing" in "the valley of the Lower Mississippi." Of all the "other sections visited by the Commission, here are found all the elements of that society still in existence; but in a state of revolution and transformation." Recounting Slavery's features in this area of the Deep South, he explores the interaction of the races during the earliest phases of military reconstruction, the sleepy pace of many of the changes, the biases of white Union officers, and-- with much eyewitness testimony-- provides a valuable report on the results of the abolition of slavery in the part of the South where it was most deeply entrenched.

        Autograph letter signed.

      Burnbank Road, Hamilton, 8. VI. 1865. - 8vo. 3 pp. on double leaf. With one addenda (s. b.). The letter is addressed to Peter Le Neve Foster, Secretary to the Society of Arts, with whom Livingstone corresponded a good deal during this period, asking him to supply samples which give an idea of the papers for the Indian civil service examinations: "[.] Neither of my boys are fit as yet for it but I would like to shew them what is expected one of them got prizes for Geography German French & Latin yesterday and seems likely to go on in these studies - Another got a prize for drawing - I wish to set them to aim high [.]". - Livingstone worries about the future of his surviving sond, while preparing for his final departure for Africa that August. He had been invited to return to Africa by the Royal Geographic Society that January, in order finally to sort out the problem of the Nile. He wrote this letter when staying with his long ailing and bedridden mother. Soon afterwards, thinking that she was rallying, he dashed down to Oxford in order to deliver a lecture, where he received a telegram announcing her death on the eighteenth. He and his wife Mary, who had died in Africa in 1862, had three sons, Robert Moffat Livingstone (1846-64), Thomas Steele Livingstone (1849-76) and William Oswell Livingstone (1851-92). Robert, the eldest, had died of his wounds the previous December, while fighting on the Union side in the American Civil War under the name Rupert Vincent so as not to bring discredit to his father, who was wont to accuse him of trading off his name. In Tim Jeal's opinion, 'Robert's life is really the story of Livingstone's failure as a parent' (Livingstone, Pimlico edition, p. 281). Oswell, the youngest, fell out of favour when in 1872, as a member of the RGS relief expedition that had been upstaged by Stanley, he failed to join his father but instead recommended him to return home, causing his father to dub him 'as poor a specimen of a son as Africa ever produced'. Tom, the middle and eldest surviving son, stayed the course and was to act as his father's chief executor; although it was to be his sister Agnes, Livingstone's doted-upon daughter, who became chief guardian of his reputation. - An album with letters to Foster by Henry Cole and others is included in the lot.

      1865. Hi, This lot is an 1865 Original Paperback Wisden. It has an expertly made facsimile spine and is an original 2nd Edition Wisden. It is in Good Condition. I was proud to own this book for years (hence how I can offer it at such a low price) but I have now purchased an original with original spine-ish so my book is up for sale, the covers here have some marks, , a bit of light staining to the front cover but not inside the book. The rear cover has some wear too. The first page has a stamp from the Sydney Pardon Estate which is a nice bonus. The spine holds the book together very well and so is tightly bound. Inside the book is nice and bright and clean, a very rare book. It is quite a bit shorter than my 1864 but so is my new replacement, must have been cut fine back then.

He was the last Whig President. He was a conservative Whig and a moderate opponent of slavery, an issue on the boil during his Presidency. He saw through the Compromise of 1850. He sought re-election but was not nominated by the party, which in any event broke up in 1854-56. Fillmore then joined the American Party, the political arm of the "Know-Nothing" movement, a nativist anti-Catholic, anti-immigrant party, though he was not himself anti-Catholic. He was the American Party candidate for President in 1856, but finished third. A lawyer from Western New York, he was one of the founders of the University at Buffalo. During the Civil War, he denounced secession and supported the Union war effort, but was sharply critical of Lincoln's war policies and supported McClellan in the election of 1864. >>>Sir William Johnson (c1715-1774) was an Anglo-Irish official of the British Empire who as a young man moved to New York the manage his uncle's estate in Mohawk country. He learned the language and customs and was appointed British agent to the Iroquois and then British Superintendent of Indian Affairs for the northern colonies from 1756-74. He commanded Iroquois and colonial militia in the French and Indian War and played an important role in the British victory at the Battle of Lake George in 1755 and he captured Fort Niagara from the French in 1759. Sir William worked hard to keep the Indians loyal to Britain. He accompanied General Jeffry Amherst to capture Montreal in 1760. He had three children with Elizabeth Brant, a Mohawk woman, and in 1759 entered into a common law relationship with Mary Brant, Joseph Brant's older sister. They remained together until the end of his life and had eight children. By this "marriage" he was adopted as a Mohawk chief. Johnson was the third largest land owner in British America. The present work was the first biography of Sir William. There is a good article on him in the Dictionary of Canadian Biography. >>> A nice copy of a very interesting New York book with an excellent New York provenance.

        "Cedar Lodge", Ipswich, Queensland; the residence of Abraham Fitzgibbon, first Commissioner and Chief Engineer of the Queensland Railways.

      Circa 1865. Watercolour and pencil on paper, 150 x 210 mm, an unmounted leaf from a sketchbook; unsigned; verso inscribed in ink in a nineteenth century hand 'The Birthplace of Florence Isabelle Fitz-Gibbon, Cedar Lodge, Ipswich, Queensland'; also inscribed, in the same hand, 'Returned to our dear Belle'; in fine condition, the tiny crease at top right edge pre-dating the work. The Irish-born railway engineer Abraham Fitzgibbon (or Fitz-Gibbon, 1823-1887) arrived in Queensland from New Zealand in June 1863. On 30 September he was appointed first Commissioner for Railways in the Colony and Chief Engineer of the Southern and Western Railway. Fitzgibbon's choice of a narrow gauge for the railway was somewhat controversial, but his proposal was accepted and construction began almost immediately, with the first operations of the Queensland Railways opening in 1865. Fitzgibbon was based in Ipswich, and the last of his five children, Florence Isabelle, was born at his residence, Cedar Lodge, on 19 December 1865. Florence's mother was Abraham's English-born wife, Isabelle (née Stovin), whom Abraham had married in Racine, Wisconsin, in 1853; she is the 'Belle' to whom the inscription on the back of this watercolour refers. Fitzgibbon's contract with the Queensland Railways was terminated at his own request in July 1867. His letter to the Brisbane Courier, dated at Ipswich, July 27 1867, was published on 30 July and attempted to dispel rumours that his contract had been cancelled by the government. Fitzgibbon returned to England with his family prior to 1868. The Brisbane suburb of Fitzgibbon is named after him. This competent watercolour sketch by an accomplished amateur artist depicts the Fitzgibbon family outside their Ipswich residence. Based on the fashion worn by the woman and two young children who are standing with a horse outside the house, the work dates to around 1865. During the family's time at Ipswich, Florence Isabelle had only two surviving older siblings: her sister Constance (born July 1855) and brother Robert (born August 1859). These are the two children depicted with their mother, Belle. Mrs. Fizgibbon appears to be wearing a maternity dress, which would firmly date the sketch to late 1865, shortly before Florence's birth. The top-hatted gentleman in the carriage at left is undoubtedly Abraham Fitzgibbon himself - the artist has even included the detail of his distinctive Abraham Lincoln-style beard (a photographic portrait of Fitzgibbon is held in the John Oxley Library). Although the artist is not identified, the wording of the inscriptions on the back suggests that the sketch was probably made by a female neighbour who had befriended Belle while the Fitzgibbons were living in Ipswich.
