        Docketed by Brady, a letter from the nephew of photographer Charles D. Fredricks to Brady concerning financial matters

      Docket ìE L Cook / May 18, 1865î by Mathew B. Brady on verso of second sheet of an Autograph Letter Signed ìE.L. Cook,î 2.5p, 5î x 8î, front & verso. New York, May 18, 1865. To Brady. Stain at lower corner. Fine condition. As the Civil War came to an end, the interest in battlefield photographs waned and Brady suffered a number of financial setbacks. Cook writes, in part, ìMr. Fredricks will be home on the 23rd and I hope you will do all you can before that time as he has written me often about that matter and I have done the best I could to make matters easy for you. The whole amt. you have paid so far is on a/c $200.00. interest 30.00. $230.00. The interest for 3 months is $35. His partner tried hard to prevent his loaning the money and it was only owing to my urgent request that he did loan it so that I feel as sorry as you do about the matter Ã? Please write me at once and at least try and pay up the interest due. You know that I will do all I can to make things easy with my uncle for you. He will arrive here on the 23dÃ?î Penned in purple ink in an unknown hand on third page: ìsent $200 Dec 5th.î Docketed on blank verso of third page by Mathew B. Brady ìE L Cook / May 18, 1865î From 1855-1875, the studio of Elijah L. Cookís uncle, Charles D. Fredricks (1823-1894), at 585-587 Broadway operated as Fredricks Photographic Temple of Art, the largest and most stylish photographic gallery in New York City. In 1859, Fredricks introduced cartes de visite photographs to the United States and became the American agent of French photographer F.R. Grumel, inventor of the photograph album. Fredricks brought suits against anyone who infringed upon Grumelís patent. He also supplied photographic templates for the illustrations in ìFrank Leslie's Illustrated,î the first periodical that made pictures its selling point. When his studio was destroyed by fire in 1875, Fredricks relocated to 770 Broadway.

        RHODA FLEMING

      1865. In Three Volumes. London: Tinsley Brothers, 1865. Original salmon red cloth. First Edition of this early novel by Meredith --~one of the most profound Victorian studies of living death after sexual fall. Dahlia and Rhoda are the two flowerlike daughters of a dead, garden-loving mother. Beautiful, moral and naive, Dahlia goes to the city, is seduced by Edward Blancove, the worldling son of a banker, and when he deserts her, she evades her family. She is about to marry a ruffian when she is discovered by Rhoda&#39;s suitor. Morally strong but blindly unaware of the dangers of supposedly correct behavior, Rhoda is willing to see Dahlia married off after her fall because it will make her respectable again. Only very slowly does Rhoda realize that acts like marrying off are what constitute immorality. Dahlia dies to life... She maddens, unsuccessfully attempts suicide, and then succumbs to tedium vitae... Dahlia dies uttering the words "Help poor girls" [in the 1886 second edition, revised by Meredith]. [Gates]~Meredith did not make much money in his arrangement with the publisher Tinsley, but felt he had to get it published:~To publish a novel was of vital importance to him at this stage in his career; he had just married [a second time], was in debt, and no doubt had to demonstrate that he could make a living by his writing alone... RHODA FLEMING, though conceived in 1863, was written hurriedly during a prolonged honeymoon. [Collie]~Sadleir ranks RHODA FLEMING as the absolute scarcest -- number one -- of Meredith&#39;s fifteen works of fiction, and goes on to say that "Few Victorian fictions are more seldom seen than those numbered 1 to 4"; he attributes this scarcity, actually in his bibliography of Trollope, to the fact that this was the only Meredith book published by Tinsley.~This copy is in the secondary binding of blind-stamped salmon-red cloth, page edges trimmed, without the publisher&#39;s name at the foot of the spines; the fact that there was a secondary binding is indicative that the novel did not sell well, prompting the publisher to bind up remaining copies more cheaply. Condition is very good (spines rather faded, as usual with this color, minor rubbing at the extremities, foxing on the very first and last leaves, one Vol I gathering standing a little proud). Collie VI; Sadleir 1702 and pp 380-381; Carter (More Binding Variants) p. 26, this being his Binding "B". Provenance: loosely inserted is 1950 correspondence between the most-recent owner of this set and Myers & Co. of New Bond Street.

        Carte de visite portrait photograph of George Armstrong Custer, in Civil War uniform

      [New York: Printed by Anthony from the negative by Brady, ca. 1865]. (CUSTER, GEORGE ARMSTRONG) 3-1/2 x 2-1/2 inches. Half-length, seated in semi-profile. Very slight mottling to image . Superb image of the still-controversial Custer, the boy-general, gallant Union cavalry officer, ambitious, publicity hungry Indian fighter, and in many ways the U.S. soldier who epitomized the posture of the United States in its Westward Expansion until he himself was killed, with his command, at the Battle of the Little Big Horn in 1876. This photograph, taken by the famous Civil War photographer Mathew Brady, is one of the rarer Brady images of the legendary general. "Even now [1984], after a hundred years, his name alone will start an argument. More significant men of his time can be discussed without passion because they are inextricably woven into a tapestry of the past, but this hotspur refuses to die. He stands forever on that dusty Montana slope ." - Evan S. Connell, SON OF THE MORNING STAR

        On the movements and habits of climbing plants

      Longman, Green, Longman, Roberts & Green, London 1865 - Darwin, Charles (1809-84). On the movements and habits of climbing plants. In Journal of the Linnean Society 9, nos. 33 & 34 (1865): 1-118. Text wood-engravings. Whole number. 128pp. 224 x 144 mm. (uncut and unopened). Original blue-green printed wrappers, a bit chipped at extremities, very minor spotting. Very good copy. Preserved in a cloth folding box. First Edition, journal issue of Darwin?s book-length paper on climbing plants, containing the essence of his discoveries in this field. The book-form second edition published ten years later, by which his work on this subject is generally known, is actually a revision and enlargement of the above. Darwin found that climbing was the result of the bending in a revolving plane of the apex of a plant?s stem while it grows. He later studied the mechanism of bending and showed that it was due to a substance that comes down from the apex when acted upon by light. This research laid the foundation of the science of growth hormones in plants. The first printing of Darwin?s monograph appeared in three forms, all from the same setting of type: the double number of the Linnean Society Journal (as above), which was issued to the Fellows; a commercial offprint for sale to the public; and an offprint for the author. It made its first appearance between hard covers in 1875. Dictionary of Scientific Biography. Freeman 833. Norman 596. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

Recherches Hydrauliques Recherches Experimentales sur l&#39;coulement de l&#39;Eau dans les Canaux Decouverts is a very scarceatlas with twenty-eight platesof tables and figures on experimentalhydraulic research on the flow of water in open channels. In French. Written byHenry Philibert Gaspard Darcy (1803- 1858) was a French engineer who made several important contributions to hydraulics. He was employed by theCorps of Bridges and Roads. In this role he built an impressive pressurised water distribution system in Dijon following the failure of attempts to supply adequate fresh water by drilling wells. The system carried water from Rosoir Spring 12. 7 km away through a covered aqueduct to reservoirs near the city, which then fed into a network of 28,000 meters of pressurised pipes delivering water to much of the city. The system was fully closed and pressurised by gravity, and thus required no filters or pumps. He was also involved in many other public works in and around Dijon, as well as in the politics of the Dijon city government. Continued by Henri-mile Bazin (1829 - 1917) was a French engineer specialising in hydraulic engineering. Condition: In a morocco binding. Externally, generally smart but with somewear to extremities and the odd slight mark to boards. Front joint starting with backstrip lifting slightly, front hinge strained. Internally, generally firmly bound. Bright and generally clean with only the odd handling mark to pages and marginally to plate XXI and a small crayon mark to front blank. Overall: VERY GOOD.

        Arte de la lengua tagala, y Manual tagalog para la administracion de los SS. Sacramentos, que compuso

      Binondo (Filipinas), Imprenta de Miguel Sánchez y Cía., 1865. - 22x15 cm., VIII-131 +166 pp. Encuadernación filipina en pergamino flexible de la época. Muy buen estado de conservación. Ejemplar completo de las dos partes, muy raros en esta condición, ya que solían venderse por separado estas dos obras. Los ejemplares de la edición de Manila, 1850, no suelen llevar la segunda parte. Una de las ediciones más conocidas pero no por ello menos rara. La lengua tagala, la más hablada en las islas Filipinas, fue también la que sufrió más modificaciones. Esta edición fue mandada imprimir por Fr. José Miralles, publicada siguiendo la primera impresa (Sampaloc, 1745), y la posterior de 1796, después Manila 1850. Todas llevan añadido como segunda parte el Manual en tagalo para la administracion de los santos sacramentos, entre ellos el de la confesión, que era administrado con una serie de preguntas, que ocupan las páginas 56 a 158. En la página 73: "Confesonario de lo que regularmente se halla en los Indios, y de lo que por lo comun esta obligado el ministro a preguntarles". Palau 338008.

        OVERLAND TRACTION ENGINE COMPANY. TRANSPORTATION BY STEAM FROM MISSOURI RIVER TO THE ROCKY MOUNTAINS

      Boston: Wright & Potter, Printers, 1865.. 61pp. plus two plates and folding map. Narrow quarto. Original wrappers. Titlepage chipped on bottom and foredge, moderately dampstained. Map cleanly torn, affecting one inch of image; also cleanly separated along one fold. Moderate dampstaining of plates and pp.1-15. Some additional very light dampstaining in upper outer corner of text. A good copy. In a half morocco and cloth box. A scarce privately circulated prospectus setting forth the optimistic plan of the Overland Traction Engine Company to haul freight and passengers overland aboard steam traction engines from the Missouri River to the Rockies. The plates, lithographed by Prang & Co., show two views of the engine - one encased, the other uncovered. A fabulous idea at a time when supplies were routinely carried hundreds of miles over the plains entirely by mule and cattle trains. In the end, however, the plan was a bit short on execution. The engine weighed fifty- four tons when fully loaded with fuel and bogged down in mud on its first trial. The folding map illustrates the prospective route west from Nebraska City. A curious 19th-century railroad alternative, which was essentially a locomotive with wheels. The NUC locates six copies, and we can add another, at Yale. GRAFF 3145. SABIN 57977.

        OUR MUTUAL FRIEND

      1865. With Illustrations by Marcus Stone. In Two Volumes [in one]. London: Chapman and Hall, 1865. Bound two-volumes-in-one, in full polished calf, red and green leather spine labels, all edges gilt. First Edition in book form of Dickens's last complete novel, in which Greed and The River Thames are two of the principal characters. OUR MUTUAL FRIEND first appeared in twenty numbers; the two volumes were published separately during serial issue, Vol I in January 1865 and Vol II in October 1865.~This set has been bound by Riviere & Son, with both half-titles, with the explanatory slip at the beginning of the text, and with the ad leaf -- in full polished calf (red and green leather spine labels, gilt borders and dentelles, all edges gilt). The spine appears to be not as old as the boards -- with the result that this is a nice tight copy, without the usual chafing of the joints of a 100-year-old calf binding. Condition is very good-plus (very minor edge-wear, a few faint scratches); the Stone plates are clean and sharp. Gimbel A150; curiously not in Carr; Smith I pp 105-110.

        MISS MACKENZIE

      1865. In Two Volumes. London: Chapman and Hall, 1865. Original blind-stamped dark green cloth. First Edition. According to Trollope&#39;s autobiography, he wrote this novel~with a desire to prove that a novel may be produced without any love... In order that I might be strong in my purpose, I took for my heroine a very unattractive old maid [of 35!], who was overwhelmed with money troubles; but even she was in love before the end of the book...~Gerould observes that~Originally titled "The Modern Griselda," this is an amusing example of the way Trollope&#39;s characters, as they developed in his mind, contrived to write their own story -- in this instance quite against his will.~MISS MACKENZIE is among Trollope&#39; scarcer titles, ranked by Sadleir fourteenth among the 50+ fiction titles. There was at least one copy (described by Sadleir) bound in maroon cloth, but this dark green cloth binding is the standard one. This copy is in very good condition, with some wear mainly near the fore-edges and minor cracking of the original pale-yellow endpapers. We seldom see this title in any better condition.

        BIRDS EYE VIEW OF NEW YORK AND ENVIRONS" - A HAND-COLORED ENGRAVED TOPOGRAPHICAL MAP OF NEW YORK CITY

      New York: Kimmel & Foster, 1865. Softcover. 140 x 203 mm (5 1/2 x 8"). Attractively matted. Evidence of previous matting (faint brown line at bottom and along right, outside the image, where earlier mat must have been), otherwise fresh, clean, uncreased, and altogther fine. Looking at the island from a southern vantage point, this is a fascinating view of Manhattan and environs at the end of the Civil War, before the great bridges spanned the river. The surprisingly verdant Battery Park is in the foreground, with ships docked at the piers on the tip of the island. The river is swarming with boats, from three-masted tall ships to steamships and ferries--and more vessels are docked all around the edges of the island and across the river at the Brooklyn piers. The great bridges that will connect Manhattan with the outer boroughs have yet to be built, and the tallest structures in the city are the church steeples. In the far distance uptown, we can see the beginnings of Frederick Law Olmstead&#39;s Central Park. The density of the buildings and the bustling river traffic establish it as a vital commercial center, the seed of what would become the financial capital of the world.

      " Thanks for your good notes. I do not think much more or much that is better can be said of Ps XIX.5. The passage holds no doctrine, .........My version of vv.4.5 is 'There is no where a speaking/ and no where are worlds/and none of their voices/ have ever been heard/ There love is outreaching/ all over the earth/and their teachings so uppermost/ bounds of the world........". He continues by giving his versions of several other psalms, and finishes "No sinners shall rise up in judgement, nor wicked in councils of saints, in judgment not in the judgment, what say you and your books?". With postscript. Came Rectory, 25 Nov. 1865. Inscribed in another contemporary hand at head of first leaf "William Barnes, The Dorsetshire Poet". Some browning and a very small puncture to last leaf.

        NOTICE TO PRIVATES!! CERTAIN PUBLIC PLACES ARE ORNAMENTED WITH HANDBILLS, PROCLAIMING A "MASQUERADE BALL" ON THE NIGHT OF THE 31st INST., EXCLUDING ALL PRIVATE SOLDIERS...[caption title and first lines of text]

      Mobile. July 31, 1865.. Broadside, 15 1/2 x 10 1/2 inches. Old fold lines. Heavily worn and stained, with tape repairs vertically down center and left edge of sheet. Slight loss along some folds, affecting a few words of text. Else good. This broadside, composed by a a member of the Union occupying forces after the Civil War, expresses outrage at the decision of army officials to exclude "private soldiers" from a masquerade ball. The author, who signs himself as "High Private," expresses indignation at the exclusion of the common soldiery, expressing a serious contempt for the officer corps. He writes: "[We] would like to know what class will compose the favorite guests? If negroes, we will be happy to stand off on the windward side. If citizens, we will respectfully give way. But if officers, we wish to say a word or two before we retire: If it had been a battle, instead of a ball, who would then have been excluded? Not the private soldier! We have suffered the privations of a soldier&#39;s life; we have left our fathers and mothers, our brothers and sisters, and our companions and children, and many of us have suffered the insolence of tyrannical officers. Thus it follows, insult is heaped upon injury....After weighing the matter carefully, we have decided on one of two conclusions: First, they wish to conceal from our gaze their dark deeds of lewdness. Secondly, they fear we may prove successful competitors. If correct in the first, we have seen enough already; but if correct in the second, they are welcome to their tainted meat." A contemporary manuscript notation at the bottom reads "1st Brig. 119th Ill.," indicating, perhaps, the intended audience or a previous owner. Not recorded in Hummel or Ellison, and not found in OCLC. Rare and interesting.
