      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.

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.

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.

        "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.

        Autograph letter signed "L. Ds."

      "Outside the theatre (for which Delibes wrote nearly all his music) his most notable work was as a composer of choruses, now undeservedly neglected. His output of songs was relatively small and that of instrumental and church music almost negligible. His cantata Alger (1865) attracted much attention at the time but has lain in obscurity since. Despite his poor record at the Conservatoire his workmanship was of the highest order; he had a natural gift for harmonic dexterity and a sure sense of orchestral colour, and nothing in his music is out of place. He was a disciplined composer, and it is tempting to see in the exquisite pastiche dances that he composed in 1882 for Hugo's Le roi s'amuse not just a sharp ear for style but a genuine feeling for the world of 17th-century French classicism, later to be espoused with such ardour by Saint-Saëns, d'Indy and Debussy." Hugh Macdonald in Grove Music Online.. 3 pp. of a bifolium. Small octavo. Dated "Thursday morning." In French (with translation). Delibes would like to see his friend to discuss some issue of importance. He also mentions several prominent musical figures in Paris: the baritone Jacques Bouhy; Philippe Gille, the co-librettist of Delibes's opera, Lakmé; Halanzier, a director at the Paris Opera; and Léon Carvalho, director of the Opéra-Comique. "In spite of everything, Carvalho wants all the same to go ahead and at full steam... When one speaks to him of waiting... he jumps to the ceiling and does not accept any hesitation. This is very embarrassing." Slightly worn and creased.

        Album of Albumen Photographs

      Twelve albumen photographs, circa 1865-75, each mounted on card with letterpress titles, images 7 x 8 ½ inches (or the reverse), mounts 13 ½ x 12 inches. Contemporary Welsh green half morocco, pebbled cloth, gilt-ruled, gilt-lettered "VIEWS IN CALIFORNIA" on the front cover, smooth spine gilt ruled, binder's ticket of B. R. S. Frost of Aberdare, Wales. Light rubbing to joints. Provenance: inscription on front free endpaper: "Daniel Rees / from his brother William / November 14th 1876.". A suberb series of images from the early period of photography in the Yosemite Valley. The images bear striking resemblance to many taken by Eadweard Muybridge, but lack attribution. Muybridge, along with photographers Carleton Watkins and Charles Weed (who may also be responsible for these images), did much to expand the wider appreciation for the natural beauty of Yosemite and its spectacular geology. The subjects here are quintessential features of the Valley, and represent its grandeur from tree to rock, and from water to sky. This album clearly was prepared for special presentation given the nature of its binding and the hand letterpress captioning on the mounts. Its Welsh binding and presentation inscription may again point to the British-artist Muybridge, who visted Yosemite in 1867 and 1872. The subjects comprise: 1) Three Brothers (some spotting to mount) 2) Bridal Veil Fall 3) Nevada Fall 4) Grizzly Giant 5) Clouds' Rest 6) Yo-semite Falls 7) North and South Dome from Glacier Point (silvering to dark areas of image) 8) Mirror Lake 9) Yo-Semite Falls From Glacier Point 10) El Capitan 11) Vernal Fall 12) Yo-semite Valley from Inspiration Point.
