        GARDNER'S PHOTOGRAPHIC SKETCH BOOK OF THE WAR. VOL. II.

      Washington: Philp & Solomons, [1865]. - [53]pp. of text. Mounted on guards throughout, tinted lithographic titlepage with lettering within integral pictorial borders. 50 original albumen silver print photographs (each approximately 7 x 9 inches), each mounted on card within a lithographed frame with letterpress caption, each image accompanied by a page of letterpress description. Oblong folio. Original publisher's black morocco, gilt, spines gilt, a.e.g. Corners slightly worn. Light dampstaining. About very good. In a half morocco clamshell case. The second volume of this work, the most famous collection of Civil War photographs, which was published in an edition of no more than 200 sets. It includes many of the most celebrated and recognizable images of the war. The photographs in this volume are organized chronologically, beginning after Gettysburg and Vicksburg in Sept. 1863 and ending with the dedication of the monument at Bull Run to commemorate the Union soldiers who had died there. Unlike Brady, who was in the habit of placing his name on images made by his field operators, Gardner specifically credits each image to the particular photographer responsible, shedding light on the work of some of the most distinguished American photographers of the day. In addition to Gardner, the SKETCH BOOK. includes work by Timothy O'Sullivan, William Pywell, D.B. Woodbury, David Knox, Barnard & Gibson, J. Reekie, and others. These images form perhaps the most important pictorial record of the Civil War. According to Taft, this work, "Is one of the most important sources of information that we have on the subject, as from it we learn the names of many men who actually made the photographs of the Civil War, and were employed by Brady and Gardner." "The photographs show the terrain of the battles., encampments, headquarters of the troops, officers and enlisted men, soldiers in drill formation and in the field under fire, and the ruins left after the battles. Limitations in the process of photography did not permit work during the battles; the photographs are remarkable documents of the circumstantial evidence for war. Recent investigations suggest that not every site was recorded just as found by the photographer but that a certain amount of rearranging, including actually moving the corpses, was undertaken in some situations. The captions, conceived in poetic rather than terse journalistic terms, suggest that the authors saw their work as having the human significance we see in many of the photographs of today" - Goldschmidt & Naef. Gardner's work was published by the Washington, D.C. firm of Philp & Solomons, and carried the rather hefty price of $150. The one hundred photographs that were included were selected from a collection of over 3,000 negatives, and the lithographic titlepages were designed by Alfred R. Waud (though designated A.R. Ward on the titlepages), one of the most important illustrators of the day. The publishers issued two slightly separate versions of the book, one in 1865, and the other in 1866. This volume is from the 1865 issue, with the caption "Incidents of the War" on each mount. HOWES G64. SABIN 26635. GOLDSCHMIDT & NAEF, TRUTHFUL LENS 68. NEVINS II, p.14. Julie L.

        Auguste Comte and Positivism

      1865. First Edition . MILL, John Stuart. Auguste Comte and Positivism. London: N.Trubner, 1865. Octavo, original blind-stamped brown cloth rebacked with original spine laid down. $1500.First edition of Mill's important work on French philosopher Auguste Comte, viewed as the father of positivism, a long-time colleague and powerful influence on Mill, here noting his immense debt to Comte as he attempts ""to sever what is true, from the much less which is erroneous” in Comte.""Comte's lasting legacy and the source of his enormous influence on European and American thought"" is his widely-viewed role as the father of positivism (Putnam, ""Question of Realism""). Here Mill, whose philosophy was deeply influenced by his older colleague, assesses Comte's ""valuable thoughtsÂ… to sever what is true, from the much less which is erroneous"" (5). While opposing Comte's views on women and religion, Mill's philosophy, with its ""assumption of a close, predetermined, connection between political institutions, physical environment, and mental stage of advancement, reflected his debt to Comtean thought, as did his continuing emphasis on the explanatory power of variations in national character"" (ODNB). At Comte's death in 1857 Mill continued ""to recognize his debt to Comte, especially for the historical conception of sociology, the three ages of mankind, and also for the 'inverse deductive method"" (Preface, Correspondence, xx). To Isaiah Berlin, ""Comte is worthy of commemorationÂ… our view of history itself, owes a good deal to his teaching"" (Four Essays on Liberty, 41). F.A. Hayek, in his critique of Comte, links him with Hegel and Marx, noting: ""the number of those who have absorbed most of the important elements of his systemÂ… is very large indeed"" (Counter-Revolution, 188). With rear page of publisher's advertisements. Serially issued in the Westminster Review (April, July 1865). Godwin, Cyclopaedia of Biography, 218. The inscription, ""From the Author,"" is not in the author's hand. Owner inscription, ""Paris Mai 1891."" Title page with tiny red line affecting one letter of author's surname.Interior fresh with expert repair to inner paper hinges, pg 199 and front free endpaper, light spotting to cloth. A scarce near-fine copy.

The flag offered here instead has stars arrayed in ""the once-illustrious 'Great Star,' perhaps the most beautiful and most loved of any Stars and Stripes. In this splendid form, the 'starry flower of Liberty'—as the flag was named by Oliver Wendell Holmes—held sway during the era of national expansion: 1818 to the end of the Civil WarÂ… The 'Great Star' pattern boasted venerable antecedents. One of the earliest motifs of American heraldry, in 1782 it appeared on the Great Seal of the United StatesÂ… To this day a 'Great Star' adorns the reverse side of the one dollar bill"" (Mastai & Mastai, 99-100). ""One 19th-century design for flags—rarely found but popular with collectors today—gathered the stars on the canton in a large star configuration, called the 'Great Star' or 'Great Luminary' pattern"" (Druckman & Kohn, 21). ""The Great Star pattern has an extraordinary folk art quality and is widely regarded as the most beautiful of the Stars and Stripes"" (Pierce Collection, 16). Stars of various sizes appearing together, as with this flag, are often seen on ""Great Star"" flags. This flag has cotton stripes and double-appliqued cotton stars on a wool canton, with all elements machine-stitched. A one-and-one-half by three-inch cotton label with an India ink inscription is sewn on the hoist side of the 12th stripe; this label appears to read ""Henry Jury,"" possibly the ownership label of a veteran of that name from Rife, PA, who served in the Pennsylvania Volunteer Militia during the Civil War and who died in 1918. See Keim & Keim, 123, 128; Pierce Collection, 18. Flag with loss to top hoist end and top and bottom fly ends, eight-inch tear to bottom of canton, eight-inch tear to fly end of fourth (white) stripe, minor soiling and some small holes. Blue canton faded to buff. A lovely example of the desirable ""Great Star"" flag.

London: Alfred William Bennett, 1865. Quarto, publisher's elaborately-gilt stamped green cloth, all edges gilt. $1600.First illustrated edition of Longfellow's Hyperion to feature 24 vintage albumen prints of photographs of castles, villages, mountain glaciers and literary sites across Germany, Switzerland and Austria by renowned Victorian photographer Francis Frith. A landmark in the intersection of photography and literature, in original gilt-tooled cloth.One of the finest photographers of the Victorian age, Francis Frith ""inaugurated the first golden age of albumen-silver photographic illustration (1860-80) during which photographs of great visual strength were supplemented by supportive texts… One of the most outspoken on the esthetics of photography, Frith was among the first photographers to successfully seize the opportunity of using the recently perfected glass-negative and albumen print process to establish a reputation as a master photographic book illustrator"" (Truthful Lens, 30). By the early 1860s Frith had become renowned for his wanderlust as he traveled across Europe, Africa and the Mideast, and was equally famed for his skill as a photographer, often waiting ""hours, and sometimes days, for the right weather and the right light"" (Fabian and Adam, 62). Prior to publication of this splendid illustrated edition of Longfellow's Hyperion (1839), Frith photographed sites along the Rhine, and writes in his preface of tracing ""the footsteps of Paul Fleming,"" Longfellow's hero, across Germany, Switzerland and Austria. This work is especially ""notable for its direct association of landscape photographs as non-literal visual equivalents of literary ideas"" (Truthful Lens). First edition: precedes the first American edition. The 24 vintage albumen prints of photographs by Frith include views of Heidelberg Castle, Interlachen, St. Gilgen, St. Wolfgang, Innsbruck, Stuttgart and more: each print approximately 4-1/2 by 6-1/2 inches and mounted on individually captioned leaves.

Some of his illustrated works include Charles Dickens' Oliver Twist (1838) and the first English translation of the Brothers Grimm's Fairy Tales. Displaying remarkable craftsmanship and skill as an etcher, Cruikshank became a household name due to his humorous portrayals of the royal family, the church, the government, the humors of the low people, and the foibles of the great. This notoriety led to a successful period of book illustration. "In the 1840s Cruikshank become an avid teetotaler and advocated for the Temperance Movement. This interest impacted his work and inspired him to write his own fireside tails detailing the perils of drinking. In 1854 Cruikshank produced a work called The Fairy Library in which he altered popular fairy tales to offer temperance lessons. Although the book did not sell well, the effort by the artist to provide lessons to his readers is not without precedent. Many tales have sought to teach amiable qualities and warn against unpleasant traits. Today his etchings continue to be placed among the work of the masters such as Ruskin."

      Washington, D.C. 1865 - Printed Document Signed in print as Secretary of the Navy. General Order No. 51, Navy Department. Washington, D.C. April 15, 1865. Black border, issued just hours after the president's death. One page with integral blank, 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 in. Complete TranscriptGeneral Order No. 51Navy Department /Washington, April 15, 1865. The Department announces with profound sorrow to the officers and men of the Navy and Marine Corps the death of ABRAHAM LINCOLN, late President of the United States. Stricken down by the hand of an assassin on the evening of the 14th instant, when surrounded by his family and friends, he lingered a few hours after receiving the fatal wound, and died at seven o'clock twenty-two minutes this morning. A grateful people had given their willing confidence to the patriot and statesman under whose wise and successful administration the nation was just emerging from the civil strife which for four years has afflicted the land, when this terrible calamity fell upon the country. To him our gratitude was justly due, for to him, under God, more than to any other person, we are indebted for the successful vindication of the integrity of the Union and the maintenance of the power of the Republic. The officers of the Navy and Marine Corps will, as a manifestation of their respect for the exalted character, eminent position, and inestimable public services of the late President, and as an indication of their sense of the calamity which the county has sustained, wear the usual badge of mourning for six months. The Department further directs, that upon the day following the receipt of this order, the commandants of squadrons, navy yards, and stations will cause the ensign of every vessel in their several commands to be hoisted at half-mast, and a gun to be fired every half hour, beginning at sunrise and ending at sunset. The flags of the several navy-yards and marine barracks will also be hoisted at half-mast.

        Man Without a Country

      1865. First Edition . [HALE, Edward Everett]. The Man Without a Country. Boston: Ticknor and Fields, 1865. Slim 12mo, early 20th-century full crimson morocco rebacked with original spine neatly laid down, original salmon printed wrappers bound in; pp. 23. Housed in a custom folding portfolio. $2800.First separate edition, first issue, of Hale’s powerful tale of patriotism—“one of the best short stories written by an American”—authored at the height of the Civil War and set during the arrest and trial of Aaron Burr’s trial for treason in the early 1800s, handsomely bound in full morocco at the Knickerbocker Press for G.P. Putnam's Sons, with scarce original wrappers bound in. Accompanied by two autograph letters signed by Hale.“One of the best short stories written by an American, and representing Hale at his best as a writer of fiction with a purpose” (ANB), Man Without a Country “has become almost an American myth” (Kunitz & Haycraft, 324). “After it first appeared as the lead article in the December 1863 issue of Atlantic Monthly, Man Without a County quickly became one of the most widely read American short stories of its time… invoked in a Supreme Court case on birthright citizenship, cited by writers like Mark Twain” (Hsuan Hsu, “Contexts,” 1-3). Hale was a descendant of the Revolution’s Nathan Hale, and Man Without a Country “was written to arouse patriotism during the Civil War… inspired by the remark of Congressman Vallandigham that he did not wish to live in a country that supported Lincoln’s administration” (Hendrickson, 95). It “recounts the treason, trial and unusual punishment of Philip Nolan, a fictional co-conspirator in Aaron Burr’s 1805-7 plot to conquer parts of New Spain. At his court-martial, Nolan bitterly explains: ‘D—n the United States! I wish I may never hear of the United States again!’ The outraged judge sentences him to live out this very wish by spending the rest of his life aboard naval ships” (Hsuan Hsu, 4). The first letter runs to three pages, dated June 4, 1887, in which Hale responds to an invitation and discusses charity work and the possible contributions of a friend of his. The second is a single page, dated 1905, on Hale's letterhead stationery, an inquiry to a librarian about manuscripts by Senator George F. Hoar for a paper he was working on. First edition, first issue, without tipped-in publisher’s announcement slip, as are all first issues. Issued in Atlantic Monthly under the pseudonym, “Captain Frederic Ingham, U.S.N.” Wright, American Fiction 1851-1875 1056. Sabin 29627. Near-fine condition. Desirable with original wrappers and two autograph letters signed present.

He may be said to have proved the relation between the aurora borealis and magnetic variations. He greatly promoted the acceptance of the undulatory theory of light and made important advances in the doctrine of the polarisation of light. Other minor achivements were made in the department of photometric measurements of the brightness of the stars, the elastic force of steam and other gases".

        GOLD, SILVER & OIL! COAL, IRON & TIMBER. FORTUNES FOR THE MILLION. THE DEPOSITORY OF THE SANDY RIVER PETROLEUM COMPANY WILL OPEN AT THE OIL STOCK EXCHANGE...(OPPOSITE BARNUM'S NEW MUSEUM) ON WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 13th, 1865

      New York: Torrey Brothers, Printers, 1865. Broadside, 23 x 7 1/2 inches. Mounted on board. Old folds, toning, some staining. Good. An exceedingly rare, and possibly unique American broadside calling for capital investment in the Sandy River Petroleum Prize Company. The company promises prizes to potential shareholders, including land, pianos, watches, diamond pins, money, and more. Investors are "sure of an immediate return on the sum invested, with the chances of realizing One Thousand Dollars for every Dollar invested, or even Larger Profits." The company boasts that shareholders will transition "from poverty to affluence in the twinkling of an eye." The Sandy River Prize Petroleum Company appears to have sold stock certificates from 1865 to 1868, issuing a prospectus in 1867. The company held mineral-rich lands in eastern Kentucky: "10,500 Acres, lying on the Big Sandy River...in the counties of Lawrence, Johnson, Floyd and Pike, and form a part of the great Apalachian [sic] Coal and Oil field, which extends along the western slope of the Alleghany Mountains and Cumberland Range." It is unclear in the historical record what happened to the company after 1868. A rare New York company broadside related to the company's land holdings in Kentucky.

        The Assassination and Death of Abraham Lincoln, President of the United States of America, at Washington, on the 14th of April, 1865.

      New York: American News Company, 1865. Pamphlet, 12mo, original self-wrappers, 12 pp. Some minor creasing, pages partially detached, but still in tact, minor chipping along edges, a little soiling or aging; otherwise very good. Somewhat scarce Lincoln assassination pamphlet that is probably the first written document outside of newspaper coverage. Despite its shortness in length, the pamphlet provides considerable detail on this historic event. The article actually appears more organized and less chaotic than newspaper coverage, even though it was published shortly after the assassination. The author was Abott A. Abott, who had published a book on Lincoln a year earlier. The pamphlet was published by the American News Company (1864-1957), which was founded by Sinclair Tousey. This firm was very big into periodicals.

        Finely penned letter, boldly signed 'Ludovico', in Italian with translation, to Cardinal Altieri, (1845-1886, Mad King of Bavaria who built Magnificent Castles & was a patron of Wagner, drowned in the Starnberg Lake)

      1865 - 1805-1867, thanking him for "the good wishes which Your Excellency sent me on the recurrence of the Holy Feast of the Nativity", and sending his in return for the Cardinal's "complete prosperity", 1 side folio and conjugate blank, Munich, 21st January two very light brown spots in blank portion, otherwise in excellent condition Written in the first New Year of Ludwig's reign. Altieri was one of the triumvirate who restored order to Rome after the revolution of 1849 and was made Governor. A good scholar and Chancellor of Rome University, he died of cholera while helping to relieve the epidemic in his diocese of Albano. In 1836 Cardinal Altieri became the diplomatic envoy to Austria for Pope Gregory XVI. He was created a cardinal in pectore four years later, receiving his red hat and title in 1845. Ludwig had a great passion for the music of the composer Richard Wagner and, on his father's death on March 10, 1864 when he ascended the throne it was one of his first official acts to invite Wagner to Munich. However, Wagner's influence over Ludwig and the king's liberal financial support combined with the composer's affair with a married woman (Franz Liszt's daughter, Cosima von Bülow) created such a public outcry that the young king was ultimately forced to dismiss him. After this Ludwig became increasingly reclusive and hid himself away in his alpine castle at Hohenschwangau, designing castles including the Disney-imitated Neuschwanstein. With his increasing instability the enormous expense of his castles became a burden to the kingdom and on June 8, 1886 he was declared insane. Five days later his body, along with that of his private physician Dr. von Gudden, was found floating in Lake Starnberg. Their deaths have never been satisfactorily explained.

        Autograph Letter Signed, to "My dear Mrs. Darbishire"

      1865 - Three pages (one leaf folded). Plain stationery but with "46 Plymouth Grove [Manchester]" handwritten at the top. Undated except for "Monday Evening." Signed "E.C. Gaskell." After the salutation, this letter reads as follows:~We started in such a hurry on Saturday that we found this morning that we had only looked forward to perpetual WARM weather, and had made no provision for rain. Moreover we could not make our purposed expedition ------ by -------- [?]; so we came home, having had two perfect days; and we hope you will consider that our visit to you is only a deferred pleasure. It was very nice seeing you all again last night! Ever yours very truly, E. C. Gaskell~At the end of the letter, in a fainter pen and different hand, it reads "Sep 9th 1866" -- which is impossible as a date for the letter, as Elizabeth Gaskell died on Nov 12th 1865 -- of a sudden heart attack at the age of 55 (sadly, just as she was visiting a house she was secretly buying, as a retirement surprise for her husband); on the back (blank) page of the letter, in the same faint hand it reads "The last letter from her." Perhaps the writer of these notes (presumably the recipient) meant Sept 9th 1865? -- as that would have been just two months before ECG's death.~Darbishire was a common last name in the Manchester area, with several people among the Gaskells' acquaintances; however the closest by far was Robert Darbishire, who had been the subject of a recurring dream Elizabeth had:~In December 1851, Gaskell wrote to Emily Tagart about a repeated bizarre dream she had been having, telling her: "I dream again and again of Robert Darbishire as a Bloomer, a daughter of mine with a 'pig beard under her muffler', & striding along in his pettiloons: you can't think what an uncomfortable dream it is. I don't know any other young man like him." . The Gaskells and the Dukinfield Darbishires became good friends and their children played together. Gaskell's dream appears to mix cross-dressing (Robert wears girl's clothes), with issues of gender (his pig beard). [Lambert]~"Mrs. Darbishire" may have been Mary (née Blackmore), wife of the solicitor Samuel Darbishire and mother of Robert, or possibly the wife of Robert himself; but Mary and Samuel had five other sons as well.~The letter is just about fine, though once folded into thirds.
