        Autographed Letter Signed

      Washington, D.C. 1865 - 4 pages (front and back), each two-page spread measuring 10 x 15.75 inches, Camp at Washington D.C., July 13, 1865. Signed "George P. Jenny - Co. K - 4th Regt. - U.S. Vols." and written to his parents just three months after the Civil War, but while he was still in the service of the Government, in small part: ".The Regiment is now doing guard duty over the U.S. Arsenal and some of them are guards over the prisoners Dr. Mudd and O'Laughlen, and others. I did not see the execution of Herold, Mrs. Surratt and the other two but some of the soldiers did. I think the Government done the right thing and if they hang Jeff Davis they will please us better." The Lincoln conspirators were convicted on June 29, 1865 and those sentenced to death, including May Surratt and David Herold, were hanged on July 7th. Mary Surratt would hold the distinction of becoming the first woman executed in the United States. Dr. Mudd and Michael O'Laughlen, at the time this letter was written, were kept hooded and in chains at the U.S. Arsenal and wouldn't be transferred to Fort Jefferson in the Tortugas for another five days. On September 14, 1867, O'Laughlen contracted Yellow Fever and died nine days later; despite efforts to save him by Dr. Mudd. The good Doctor was granted a pardon for his efforts in saving the lives of staff and inmates during the epidemic and was released from prison on March 1, 1869. Letters referring to the incarceration of the Lincoln Conspirators are rare, no matter how brief, due to the fiercely enforced gag orders instituted by the Army. Small tears along the natural folds but still in very good condition. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1865 - 1865 Original Paperback Wisden, Facs Spine, 2nd Edition!

      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.

Just slightly rubbed at head and tail of spine, corners worn with slight loss of marbled paper, closed tear to lower inner corner of folding table, contents very clean and bright, binding tight and firm. A very good copy. Plate 1 is a full size reproduction in red and black of the splendid pictorial title page of the Great Byble of 1539, recto and verso, Plate 34 is a reproduction of the pictorial title to the first edition of the Authorised King James Version of 1611, both with tissue guards, the rest of plates consist, with several images per page printed red and black, of comparisons between various features of the Bibles described: engravings, ornaments, initials, headpieces, headers, Kalendars, title pages, genealogies, textual differences, etc. The 14 original leaves each have a small label pasted in the lower margin printed with the date of the Bible it is from, starting with 1539, Numbers; April 1540 St. Luke; July 1540 Judges; November 1540 Numbers; May 1541 Ezechiel; November 1541 Numbers; December 1541 Salomon; 1st issue 1611 Psalmes; 2nd issue 1611 Psalmes; 2nd issue reprints 1611 Psalmes; 1613 Job; 1617 Psalmes; 1634 Psalmes; 1640 Ezekiel. First leaf trimmed at the top with loss of part of heading, otherwise all 14 original leaves in very good state. "Most copies (of the Great Bibles of 1539-41) appear to be mixed; doubtless, many copies were originally issued in this state. The problem is further complicated by the fact that certain leaves of some editions were reprinted, apparently because the supply of these particular leaves had run short and they were required to complete copies then being made up. Fry attempted to ascertain what leaves properly belonged to each edition and to make a list of the 'reprinted leaves' . his work remains a monument of painstaking research".

        Projet de canal interocéanique de Nicaragua. Voyage d'étude manuscrit].

      1865 ca 1865 - Manuscrit in-4 en feuilles de 329 pp. à 28 lignes la page (saut de pagination 205/215) et 33 pp. à 46 lignes la page. Joint 1 carte (41 x 34 cm) : Amérique septentrionale dressée par Lorrain en 1833. Journal inédit du voyage sur le continent américain effectué par le marquis Henri de Tilly Blaru entre mai 1864 et juillet 1865 pour le compte de la Banque Suisse qui l'avait chargé de soutenir auprès des gouvernements du Nicaragua et du Guatemala, un projet de canal maritime interocéanique. Je vous ai déjà dit comment au mois de juillet 1863, j'avais été mis au courant des projets formés par la Banque Suisse pour la canalisation du fleuve San Juan et la jonction du canal de Nicaragua au Pacifique pour établir la communication maritime continue entre les deux mers. Félix Belly envoyé par la Banque en Amérique revenait alors de cette expédition (incipit). Précurseur de Ferdinand de Lesseps, Félix Belly projetait de percer l'isthme, non pas à Panama, mais en passant par le lac de Nicaragua, suivant un plan étudié par Napoléon III, pendant sa captivité au fort de Ham. Avec l'aide de financiers, il fonda plusieurs compagnies et signa avec les gouvernements de Nicaragua et de Costa-Rica, des traités avantageux. Il entreprit plusieurs sondages, leva des plans mais deux révolutions successives dans ces deux pays, renversèrent son oeuvre. Le président avec lequel il avait signé fut fusillé, et il dut revenir en Europe, sans espoir de pouvoir réaliser son gigantesque projet (Percement de l'isthme de Panama par le canal de Nicaragua. Exposé de la question - 1858). L'historique des opérations et implications financières du projet trans-américain souvent étudié au XIXe siècle sont ainsi exposés par le marquis de Tilly en préambule à sa relation. Il suit de là que rien n'était achevé lorsque je fus chargé de régulariser toutes ces opérations. Oscar du Teil semblait m'indiquer sans me connaître, et comme personne ne voulait courir les chances d'une si lointaine expédition, toutes les raisons tant du côté de la Banque pour me charger de cette mission que du mien pour l'accepter se trouvèrent réunies pour que je me rendisse en Amérique. Ancien élève de l'Ecole Royale Militaire de Saint-Cyr, Clément-Henri marquis de Tilly-Blaru (1805-1875) était lieutenant de dragons quand éclata la révolution en 1830. Il donna sa démission et prit part à la tentative de soulèvement légitimiste. Il dut s'expatrier en Suisse, où il resta quelques années et fut le premier Français qui fit l'ascension du Mont-Blanc, le 9 octobre 1834 (Ascensions aux cimes de l'Etna et du Mont-Blanc. Genève, 1835). Renommé pour ses nombreux travaux d?ingénierie relatifs aux chemins de fer et au creusement de canaux, il fut missionné plusieurs fois par la Banque Suisse pour ses brillantes qualités d?expertise (Note sur l'expertise de la Banque suisse ordonnée par arrêt de la Cour de justice du 21 décembre 1868 par le marquis Henri de Tilly - Lyon, 1869). Sa relation bien détaillée et circonstanciée (climat, faune et flore, économie) débute le mercredi 18 mai 1864, sous forme de journal avec la traversée de l?Atlantique puis la description des Açores des Caraïbes, Porto-Rico, St-Domingue, la Jamaïque, la baie de Panama, le débarquement à Greytown le port du Nicaragua à l?embouchure et la remontée du San Juan, l'arrivée à San José du Guatemala enfin le récit de son séjour au Guatemala. La seconde partie plus courte est principalement consacrée aux Etats-Unis de 1865 (visites de New-York, des chutes du Niagara) bouleversés par la guerre de sécession et ses conséquences menaçantes pour le légitimiste Clément Henri de Tilly Blaru. L'absence de titre conjuguée à l'absence de signature, l'anonymat de l'auteur (Tily Blaru) et du destinataire (Mon Général) indiquent qu'il s'agit là très vraisemblablement d'un premier état du rapport ou du compte-rendu attendu par les commanditaires. Le manuscrit parfois biffé, parfois corrigé mais d'une grande lisibilité, fut probablement rédigé par Henri de Ti [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        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 testifying 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.

A little rubbed, volume I rear board slightly bubbled and mottled, rear endpapers discoloured, and both hinges repaired, some light browning, but overall a very good set, presenting well.

First edition. Following graduation from Oxford, where he was a friend of Ruskin, "Newton entered the British Museum in 1840 as assistant in the department of antiquities under Edward Hawkins. Here he took advantage of the opportunity to study at First hand a wide range of antiquities, including coins, and acquired a thorough training in curatorship In 1852 Newton resigned from the British Museum on appointment as vice-consul at Mytilene. From April 1853 to January 1854 he served as acting consul at Rhodes In addition to consular duties he was authorized to serve the interests of the museum by acquiring antiquities through excavation and purchase. His excavations on Kalymnos in 1854 and 1855, financed by Lord Stratford de Redcliffe, the British ambassador at Constantinople, yielded many inscriptions for the British Museum. Also in 1855 he unearthed the bronze serpent from Delphi in the hippodrome at Constantinople and visited Bodrum (ancient Halicarnassus) for the first time. After a second visit in the following spring he obtained a government grant of £2000 together with naval and military support for an expedition to retrieve some lions from the mausoleum immured in the castle of St Peter and to excavate the site of the mausoleum itself" (ODNB). Newton became the first keeper of Greek and Roman Antiquities in 1861. He was closely involved in the foundation of three highly influential archaeological institutions: the Society for the Promotion of Hellenic Studies, to which he gave an inaugural address in June 1879; the Egypt Exploration Fund, founded in 1882; and the British School at Athens, opened in November 1886. Newton died in 1894. Atabey 869; Blackmer 1193; Gernsheim, Incunabula of British Photographic Literature, 284. [Attributes: First Edition]
