        [PENCIL AND WATERCOLOR SKETCH OF UNION MEN RESTING AND DRINKING FROM A RIVER, EXECUTED FOR HARPER'S WEEKLY]

      [N.p., 1865. Pencil and watercolor sketch, 7 3/4 x 9 inches. Loose in a paper mat. Previously folded, a couple of minor creased flattened. Very good. An attractive pencil and watercolor sketch of Union troops and their horses drinking from an unnamed river, in the style of A.R. Waud, perhaps by him and unsigned, drawn for publication in Harper's Weekly. In the left foreground, two men stare tiredly into the distance while their horses refresh themselves; on the right a group of three seated men guzzle from their canteens. The perspective of the image looks upstream towards a mountain and several wooden structures. Waud was one of the foremost illustrators for Harper's Weekly during and after the Civil War. He is most well- known for his depictions of Gettysburg that appeared as engravings in the periodical, and his rendering of "The First Vote" by former slaves during Reconstruction.

        To the Army of the Tennessee.... Saratoga Springs, N.Y. June 1st 1865.

      Saratoga Springs, NY: Union Hotel, 1865. Printed Invitation. 1p (lettersheet). Small 4to (7 3/4" X 9 3/4"). Very good. Two original horizontal folds visible; binding traces along left edge. Rare copy of what is surely one of the earliest memorial gatherings regarding a specific Civil War anniversary -- the second anniversary of the fall of Vicksburg on July 4th, 1863, ending the two-month Siege of Vicksburg. One of the last major rebel strongholds on the Mississippi River, the defeat of General John C. Pemberton's troops by U.S. Grant's Army of the Tennessee put one of the final nails in the Confederate coffin. Published less than three months after the Confederacy's official surrender on April 9, 1865, this decorative invitation is printed on a high-quality stock and features a variety of ornamental typefaces and type sizes. "You are respectfully invited to attend a grand reunion of the Officers and Ex Officers of the Army of the Tennessee, at Union Hotel, Saratoga Springs, on the 4th of July, 1865, to celebrate the anniversary of the fall of Vicksburg -- the opening of the Mississippi River and the termination of that Campaign which numbered among its captures Fort Henry, Ft. Donelson, Nashville, Corinth and Memphis." It continues: "A Dinner will be given under the direction of the Senior proprietor of the Hotel, Maj. W.W. Leland, formerly Chief Commissary of the Army of the Tennessee. Our old Chief Lieutenant General Grant is expected to be present and preside at the dinner...." Among the half dozen officers ("committee of invitation") then listed are Major General John A. Logan, Major General Frank P. Blair, Brevet Major General John A. Rawlins and two others. The invitation is then signed in type at lower right by the event's chairman, Col. W.S. Hillyer -- one of Grant's aides-de-camp. In the lower left corner, the name of the recipient of this invitation has been lightly penned ("Lieut A.J. Harding / St Joseph / MO") by the person who sent it to him -- none less than Union Hotel co-owner Warren W. Leland, who signs the lower right corner. Leland (who had served on Grant's staff) and his three brothers, all well-known hotel owners already, had purchased this Saratoga Springs landmark (which the "New York Times" had once described as "the most sumptuous public house in the world") the year before; tough times followed, though, and by 1872 they declared bankruptcy. A choice copy of this quite scarce invitation, which given its nature would have been produced in a very small quantity.

        Journals Of The Deputy Quartermaster General In New Zealand. From The 24th December, 1861, To The 7th September, 1864

      Recently professionally rebound in green stamped goatskin, raised bands and marbled boards. 158pp, xxiii-xxvii, xxi, xxi-xxvi. Consisting of the original 128pp of text and 19 hand coloured, folding maps with xxipp of Appendices. In addition there are 5 Addendums, extending the journals from the 8th September through to the 6th May 1865. These continue the pagination from pages128 to 158 and include a further 5 folding, coloured maps. Prior to the appendices which are numbered I - XVI in the contents, are 5pp of additional, numbered XVIII and XIX, along with 6pp afterwards with appendix numbers XVII, XVIII, XIX and XX and date up to May, 1865. Dominic Jacotin Gamble took up the post of deputy quartermaster-general in 1861 on the staff of Lieutenant General Duncan Cameron in New Zealand, he had overall responsibility for the transport, movement and quartering of troops. Before the campaign began Gamble made careful preparations and during the operations of 1863-64 took great pains to ensure the efficient functioning of the supply system. He acted decisively and effectively when the flow of supplies to the army was threatened by Maori attacks on traffic along the Great South Road. These journals and accompanying maps were produced to aid the logistics of the military operations and as such were confidential, indeed these are marked as such. The maps were produced and lithographed at the Topographical Depot of the War office, credited to Colonial Sir Henry James and printed with the facsimile signature of Gamble. The condition is very good, some professional repairs to a number of the maps and the margins of a few pages, a clean bright example of what appears to be an exceptionally scarce work especially with the additional journals

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. Baden bei Wien, 18. IV. 1865.

      1865. 1 S. 8vo. auf gefalt. Doppelblatt. An den Schauspieler Carl Ritter von La Roche (1794-1884): "Wenn es Sie wundern sollte, von einem Manne brieflich angesprochen zu werden, der nicht das Glück hat, mit Ihnen in näherer Verbindung zu stehen, so mögen Sie die Schuld dem wahrhaft künstlerischen Eindruck Ihrer Persönlichkeit auf mich beimessen. Dass sich derselbe im Laufe der Jahre nicht verwischte, werden Sie natürlich finden, wenn Sie sich erinnern wollen, dass schon meine Dankbarkeit für Ihre meisterhafte Verlebendigung einer meiner Ideen ihn consecrieren müsste [...] Ich habe ein bürgerliches Schauspiel in vier Akten vollendet und wünschte lebhaft Ihr Urtheil darüber namentlich in Bezug auf praktische Bühnenbrauchbarkeit zu erfahren - Darf ich es Ihnen in gut lesbarer Abschrift zusenden und Ihre briefliche Rückäußerung in Anspruch nehmen? Das ist die Bitte, an die sich im Gewährungsfalle das weitere Ersuchen knüpft, die Existenz des Stückes streng geheim zu halten [...]". - Mit Stempel der Handschriftensammlung von Graf Viktor Wimpffen "Sammlung La Roche". - Durch regimekritische Essays 1847 zur Flucht aus Wien genötigt, kehrte Lorm nach Ende der Revolution zurück, wurde Redakteur der "Wiener Zeitung" und durch mehrere Feuilletonromane auch bald schon einem größeren Publikum bekannt. Sein lyrisches Werk ist wesentlich vom Einfluß Schopenhauers geprägt. Seit 1856 in Baden bei Wien, später in Dresden und Brünn lebend, erfand der bereits von Jugend an sehschwache, 1880 jedoch völlig erblindete Schriftsteller die noch heute gültige Handtastensprache (Lormsches Fingeralphabet).

Il ne s'âgit pas des démarches de votre part, mais tout simplement des notes confidentielles des quelles je puisse faire usage dans les régions qui vous doient encore des recompenses pour des services rendus. - Vous concevez bien qu'il me faut connaître moi-même les faits en votre faveur pour pouvoir plaider pour vous [...]".

        Panorama di Feltre.

      1865. Litografia di G. Kirchmayr, mm 420x820. Splendido panorama generale della città presa da sud, sicuramente la più bella ed importante stampa del secolo XIX, pareggiata in assoluto forse solo dalla cosiddetta veduta settecentesca di Zambaldi. Molto probabilmente questa stampa deriva da un disegno a matita eseguito da Moro nel 1861, purtroppo scomparso (C. Alberici, 1977, 87). De Nard, Belluno e Feltre nelle stampe, 111: "E' una preziosa testimonianza iconografica risultando che essa è stata eseguita nel rispetto della realtà urbana. Si nota infatti una meticolosa rappresentazione non solo delle principali emergenze architettoniche, ma anche...dell'edilizia minore...La stampa è certamente molto rara". Esemplare molto ben conservato (i due esemplari del museo civico di Feltre, dice De Nard, sono completamente smarginati), ad ampi margini, con solo uno strappo al margine destro, che sfiora la litografia, e qualche macchia, oltre alle inevitabili fioriture della carta ottocentesca.

      Stabilimento F. Lucca, 1865. In 4, pp. 95 + (1b). Br. ed. Rarissimo spartito musicale interamente inciso all'acquaforte del Quintetto in la maggiore di Antonio Bazzini (Brescia, 1818 - Milano, 1897). Bazzini, compositore musicale, fu un virtuoso del violino 'per quanto riguarda l'opera compositiva di Bazzini, cui egli attese lungo tutto il corso della sua vita lasciando un catalogo tutt'altro che povero [...] le testimonianze e i giudizi si diradano molto, anche perche' sono in qualche modo sopravvissute nella pratica concertistica soltanto le pagine di piu' elegante virtuosismo [...] Ma non sono sopravvissuti ne' il melodramma Turanda su libretto di Antonio Gazzoletti da Gozzi [...] ne' i Concerti, le Ouvertures, le Sonate, che invece a quell'epoca godettero di numerosi tributi di stima, e nemmeno infine il Quintetto in la maggiore e quei Sei quartetti per archi che pure sono unanimemente riconosciuti come i cimenti compositivi bazziniani piu' degni di considerazione' (AA.VV., La musica a Milano, in Lombardia e oltre, vol. 1, pp. 238-239). L'esemplare in nostro possesso smentisce, quindi, le ricerche svolte finora, aggiungendo un nuovo tassello, ad oggi non ancora pervenuto, nella conoscenza dell'opera di Bazzini. ITA

        Original Deed to a Notable Historic Property in Little Kilbanow in the Parish of Amroth, County of Pembroke, Wales, part of the Picton Castle Estate [United Kingdom]

      London, 1865. First edition. [No Binding -- Single Sheet Document. Fine. An ORIGINAL 1865 Indenture to Real Estate in Pembrokeshire, Wales, adjacent to the historic Picton Castle Estate -- Picton Castle being a medieval Castle near Haverford West in Pembrokeshire originally constructed in the 13th Century by a Flemish Knight. The Castle became the property of Sir John Wogan, an ancestor of the Philipps family, who was a Cambro-Norman judge and who served as Justiciar of Ireland from 1295 to 1313, making him the most important Common Law Judge of Ireland at the time. [The Cambro-Normans were Normans who settled in southern Wales after the Norman conquest of England in 1066 conducted by William the Conqueror. The most prominent Cambro-Norman was Richard "Strongbow" de Clare, whose lands in Wales centered on Pembroke and who led the Norman invasion of Ireland.] The land conveyed by the Indenture described herein and dated 29th September 1865 was sold for 775 Pounds by Henry Sanders of Tenby in Pembroke County to Rev. James Henry Alexander Philipps, Vicar of St. Mary’s, Haverfordwest (Philipps being a descendant of Sir John Wogan who formerly had the surname Gwyther but who assumed the name Phillips upon taking title to Picton Castle). By this Indenture (which one now would describe as a "Deed") Philipps expanded the Picton Castle Estate by seventeen acres, one rood and five perches. The property thereby conveyed was then generally known as Little Kilbanow and is shown in a drawing made upon the Indenture and shaded in pink. The the conveyed property is shown as a set of numbered parcels, the respective then-uses of which are set forth in a chart shown on the Indenture. From examining the drawings, it appears that the acquisition of the property covered by the Indenture filled a large gap in the Picton Estate property. Picton Castle -- and certainly the property conveyed by this Indenture -- was seized by the French in 1405 and was later seized by the Parliamentary Forces in 1645 during the English Civil War -- showing the Castle and adjacent land to be a strategically important Welsh properly. Picton Castle remains owned and occupied by descendants of James Henry Alexander Philipps and we assume that the property conveyed by the Indenture does so as well . The deed (which measures approximately 28 inches X approximately 22 1/2 inches) is in Fine condition with all wax seals and the stamp tax sticker present. [An interesting article on Picton Castle and its history can be found on Wikipedia.] A Fine ORIGINAL INDENTURE [DEED] CONVEYING A PORTION OF ONE OF THE MOST NOTABLE PROPERTIES IN ALL OF WALES. RARE.

This handsome broadside is actually a Lincoln assassination piece that appears to have been altered into a Horace Greeley election broadside for the 1872 presidential election -- a fascinating oddity. In this superb stipple-point engraving, the ancient Greek philosopher Diogenes of Sinope (ca. 412bc - 323bc) is seated front and center, holding up a lantern and leaning against a large, laurel-draped oval portrait of Lincoln. (Diogenes is supposed to have carried a lantern during the day, searching in vain for an honest man.) Immediately behind Diogenes is the base of an enormous column, while in the background at upper left is the U.S. Capital building. The two-line caption "Diogenes His Lantern Needs No More, / An Honest Man Is Found! -- The Search Is O'er" runs across the blank lower margin. The oval portrait that Diogenes leans over is a fine head-and-shoulders portrait of the bewhiskered and bespectacled Greeley as he appeared in later years -- but when a strong light source is placed directly underneath this portrait the ghostly image of Lincoln shows through from beneath. Holzer, Boritt and Neely write about this broadside in their 1984 study "The Lincoln Image: Abraham Lincoln and the Popular Print." They note, "Lincoln's fabled honesty was at the core of a public image that endures to this day. Lincoln owed his election to the presidency in 1860 in no small part to this image, summed up in the political sobriquet invented for the campaign: 'Honest Abe, the Railsplitter of the West.' It connoted integrity and, implicitly, the American dream of the right to rise. By 1865, the year of his assassination, the Lincoln image had grown richer. Now he was also the Great Emancipator, the savior of the Union and the martyr of liberty. This post-assassination rendition of the search of the ancient Greek philosopher for an honest man indicates that Lincoln's integrity continued at the heart of what Americans saw in him." What we have here, then, is an assassination broadside turned campaign broadside. Whether this jerry-rigged Greeley campaign item is simply a "one up" crafted by a devout supporter, or was produced in any kind of quantity, is not known -- although further research might well determine this. The size of the Greeley portrait is so ideal, its cut and placement into the existing oval so precise, that the deception is not easily noticed. Possibly a quantity of unsold Beers Lincoln prints were discovered and an instant and exceptionally attractive Greeley campaign poster engineered in this fashion. This broadside obviously does not specifically state "Greeley for President," but its message -- that here is an honest man to trust -- is clearly intended to espouse Greeley as a worthy presidential candidate. It's also possible that this Lincoln mourning broadside was intended as a Greeley mourning broadside -- but Greeley's campaign and his death were so close together that this too might be impossible to verify. In 1872 Greeley participated in his one and only and absolutely disastrous presidential campaign, accepting the Liberal Republican nomination. Greeley's character was thoroughly raked over the coals, his defeat was enormous (he won only six states), his wife died shortly afterward and he lost control of the editorship of his beloved "New York Tribune." Greeley promptly went insane and, just as promptly, died.

Bazzini, compositore musicale, fu un virtuoso del violino 'per quanto riguarda l'opera compositiva di Bazzini, cui egli attese lungo tutto il corso della sua vita lasciando un catalogo tutt'altro che povero [.] le testimonianze e i giudizi si diradano molto, anche perche' sono in qualche modo sopravvissute nella pratica concertistica soltanto le pagine di piu' elegante virtuosismo [.] Ma non sono sopravvissuti ne' il melodramma Turanda su libretto di Antonio Gazzoletti da Gozzi [.] ne' i Concerti, le Ouvertures, le Sonate, che invece a quell'epoca godettero di numerosi tributi di stima, e nemmeno infine il Quintetto in la maggiore e quei Sei quartetti per archi che pure sono unanimemente riconosciuti come i cimenti compositivi bazziniani piu' degni di considerazione' (AA.VV., La musica a Milano, in Lombardia e oltre, vol. 1, pp. 238-239).

        Cartoon sequence set in Africa. No place, c. 1865.

      1865. Twelve curious illustrations depicting the adventures of a "nigger minstrel" troupe ("the Ebonys") in Africa, in a sketchbook also containing the journal of a tour of duty in the Ionian Sea during the year 1865. Grotesquely humourous story of three minstrels, setting out "from Assention" with their faithful crocodile "Crock" via the "overland route in Africa". After being severely discomfitured by several wildebeests' "Night Attack in the Jungle", they embark on crocodile-back, sail for the Cape of Africa and are nearly eaten by sharks, but eventually arrive at the Cape (albeit "with the loss of the faithful Crock"). Here they entertain natives with their musical antics before crossing the Zambesi for the continent's interior, escape an "attack of the Crocodiles", capture a rhinoceros (which they ride to the Tune of "I am off to Old Varginie") and battle gorillas, pythons, and monkeys. Half a century later, Dr. Livingstone discovers their bones; "too late to render them any assistance - to the tune of Poor Old Ned". The overt racism of Carte's illustrations (not unusual for the Victorian period), and their strange blending of African and Afro-American stereotypes, indicate a subconscious attempt on his part to master cultural fears through ridicule. - The remainder of the notebook is taken up by a 15-page naval diary of Carte's Royal Navy mission in the Ionian Sea during early 1865, as well as by calculations, technical diagrams and reference tables as would be employed by a naval engineer on a steam ship. A memo concerning the relative powers of ship's captain and engineer points to an insubordinate streak in Carte's character. - E. L. Carte was born at Barton-upon-Humber in Lincolnshire. He was educated in Hamburg and Antwerp until 1853, when he was sent to Scotland to learn the engineering trade. His first experience of the sea was on a ship belonging to his uncle, Joseph Gee of Hull. In 1861, following Gee's death, Carte entered the Royal Navy as Assistant Engineer. He was promoted to the rank of Engineer in 1868. During his career Carte served on at least 15 ships, including the HMS Bristol (1867), HMS Greyhound (1867-69), HMS Mersey (1869-70, at Queenstown) and HMS Iron Duke (1871-74, during which time he was the engineer responsible for commissioning the engines), and HMS Ready (1878-82), with deployments off West Africa and South America and in the Persian Gulf and Indian Ocean. He was placed on the retired list in 1888. Carte married Sarah (Sally) Flunder of Sheerness on 3 June 1863 at Minster Sheppey, Kent, and had four children. He died at Southampton on 23 June 1911.

He was wont to compose his works in a Swiss chalet in the garden. - The picture depicts Dickens in half-length pose. Not in the Pilgrim Edition of Dickens' letters.

        Autograph letter signed. Hottingen near Zurich, 20. X. 1865.

      1865. Large 4to. 2½ pp. on 4 ff. A very long and comprehensive letter to Franz von Pfistermeister, cabinet secretary to Ludwig II of Bavaria, on preliminary works for a Festival Theatre for Wagner in Munich. The project was pursued for a few years but ultimately not realised. Ludwig decided to build the theatre in Weimar instead of Munich; nevertheless, Semper's original drafts were used (albeit without the architect's permission). In his letter, Semper gives a very detailed account of the central position of the orchestra, the stage, and the auditorium. He refers to Wagner, with whom he had discussed the project, and his ideas for interior designs. - The foundation stone of the Weimar Festival Theatre was laid on Wagner's birthday in May 1872; construction was realised under the German architect Otto Brückwald, and the building first opened for the premiere of the complete four-opera cycle of "Der Ring des Nibelungen" (13-17 August 1876). One year later Wagner wrote to Semper: "The theatre, though crude and artless, is executed according to your drafts" (cf. Hermann Sturm, Alltag & Kult, Basel 2003, p. 109f.). - Somewhat browned and spotty; fol. 1 nearly torn in the centerfold, small tears and slight ruststains.

        Autograph letter signed to Princess Troubetskoy. Baden, 28. III. 1865.

      1865. 8vo. 4 pp. In French. Turgenev had read the first part of Tolstoy's new novel 1805 ['War and Peace'], which appeared in instalments between 1863 and 1869. He found it boring and cold, and complains of the lack of historical sense and of its lack of poetry: "Que c'est ennuyeux et froid, quelle recherche de la petite bete, quel manque absolu de sens historique, d'imagination et meme de poesie (chose etrange chez lui). C'est un peintre de miniatures qui a voulu faire un grand tableau d'histoire - et il s'est casse le nez [...]". He adds that Merimee views Tolstoy's 'The Cossacks' in a similar light; Turgenev himself considered The Cossacks to be the best story written in the Russian language. He describes life in Baden and the musical matinees given each Sunday by the Viardots. He has purchased land in Baden and will build a house there (near his beloved Pauline Garcia Viardot). - This important letter is apparently unpublished. In spite of his criticism of Tolstoy in this letter, Turgenev altered his opinion of 'War and Peace' after he read the work in its final revised version in 1866, and he later promoted it extensively in France and Germany.

Tu serais bien gentil de me dire ce que ton patron en a pensé". - Dated in the hand of Caroline Commanville, his literary executor; light creasing along old folds.

        Autograph letter signed. Burnbank Road, Hamilton, 8. VI. 1865.

      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.
