Lincoln, Abraham
Washington, D.C., 1865. Broadside, 13 x 8 1/4 inches. Faint dust-soiling, minor edge wear, with a few short marginal tears repaired on verso. Very good. A rare first broadside printing announcing two of President Lincoln's three final proclamations, "Closing Certain Ports" and "Port of Key West to Remain Open," both issued on April 11, 1865. President Lincoln issued these proclamations just three days before he was cut down by the assassin, John Wilkes Booth. Both proclamations are signed in type by Lincoln and Secretary of State William H. Seward. The first proclamation, "Closing Certain Ports," shut down a large number of Confederate ports, all listed on the proclamation, and indicated that "all rights of importation, warehousing, and other privileges, shall, in respect to the ports aforesaid, cease until they have again been opened by order of the President; and if, while said ports are closed, any ship or vessel from beyond the United States, or having on board any articles subject to duties, shall attempt to enter any such port, the same, together with its tackle, apparel, furniture, and cargo shall be forfeited to the United States." It was President Lincoln's 126th proclamation. The second proclamation, "Port of Key West to Remain Open" was issued to amend the previous proclamation. It stated that "the port of Key West, in the state of Florida, was inadvertently included among those which are not open to commerce" and declared that "said port of Key West is and shall remain open to foreign and domestic commerce...." It was President Lincoln's 127th proclamation … [Click Below for Full Description]

Willis, William
Boston: Bailey & Noyes, 1865. 8vo, brown cloth, gilt title at spine. Folding lithographic frontis, [i-v], vi-xiii, [blank], [7]-928 pp., 4 b&w lithographic plates, 2 folding maps. Second edition, revised and enlarged of this work first published in two volumes in 1831 and 1833, respectively. William Willis (1794-1870) was a lawyer, historian, Harvard graduate, and mayor of Portland. A founder of the Maine Historical Society, he successively served as secretary, treasurer, and president. "[H]e was also the editor of the first six volumes of its Collections (1831-59), and all but the third volume of these contained at least one article from his pen" (Dictionary of American Biography). The History of Portland is considered one of Willis' chief works, along with A History of the Law, the Courts, and the Lawyers of Maine (1863). Willis notes how the destruction of Portland and its records by the Indians in 1690 posed problems for the completion of this work. Includes a fine lithographic view of Portland in 1865, based on the view of Portland by J. W. Hill in 1855. "A portion of the edition was destroyed in the fire of 1866" (Williamson).

Buller, Walter.
Wellington: Author, 1865. Octavo,20 pp.,with two other papers, very scarce. Also included is a paper "Notes On the ornithology of New Zealand" by Buller (extract from The Ibis 1869). Separate is a paper by Buller "The story of Papaitonga; or a page of Maori history (Wellington Philososphical Society p. 572-584). "There is an interesting history to this publication and you need to be careful how you describe it. Buller's and several other essays were written for the New Zealand Exhibition in Dunedin in 1865, organised and edited by James Hector and printed by Fergusson & Mitchell of Dunedin. But the printers were so slow that copies were not available until several years after the Exhibition. Few were distributed, leaving Hector with the problem of what to do with the large remaining stock. By this time he had moved to Wellington as, among other things, Manager of the new New Zealand Institute. The problem of what to do with the Essays was solved by giving them all new title pages and binding sets of them into the first volume of the "Transactions and Proceedings of the New Zealand Institute" for 1868, published in 1869. This restricted the print run of this volume of the Transactions to 500 and it was soon exhausted and had to be reprinted in 1875. The original copies of Buller's essay as printed for the Exhibition by Fergusson and Mitchell have a cover title page headed "New Zealand Exhibition, 1865" and with the imprint at the bottom, "Printed for the Commissioners, by Fergusson and Mitchell . . . MDCCCLXV" The majority of copies as bound into the Transactions are Ferguss … [Click Below for Full Description]

J. R. Goodard
On board the Euterpe: January 5, 1865, 1865. Unbound. Very good. Lightly soiled with some doodling at the upper corner of the first page. In this letter, Goddard expresses heartfelt sorrow to "Eva" that he would not be able to take leave for a visit. The reason he explains as follows: "We landed from our Williamsburg expedition on New Years day and went into camp. I immediately made application for a leave of absence but before it could get through the proper channels we were ordered to reimbark for a second expedition so I shall have to wait a while longer. It is supposed that our destination is Wilmington again and I hope this time with better success than before. It is very probable that some weeks may elapse ere I have an opertunity to send you another letter. Meantime you may hear of hard fighting but do not enable yourself unhappy by worrying yourself about me. Remember that there are not one fourth so many killed in battle as is general supposed. If it be my fate to fall it is my desire that you should be happy remembering that our 'father in heaven' doeth all things well.". Goddard was one of the white officers that led the 30th U.S. Colored Infantry, which was part of the then recently assembled all African-American 25th Corps that had been formed the month before. Its first intended engagement was to be an assault on Fort Fisher at Wilmington, North Carolina. The notoriously incompetent political general, Benjamin Butler, commanded that expedition in late December, but abandoned the assault shortly after it began on Christmas Day.

Yoshitoshi
Edo, Japan, 1865. Title: The battle between the Minamoto and Taira clans at Yajima [1185]. Artist: Tsukioka Yoshitoshi (1839-92). Signed: Ikkaisai Yoshitoshi ga. Note that early on Yoshitoshi took the secondary "studio" name Ikkaisai and that 1865 was the last year when he used that studio name on a regular basis, although he used it occasionally after 1865. Date: date seal Kei-o 1(1865) and publisher cartouche. By 1865 Yoshitoshi was ranked tenth most popular Ukiyo-e artist in the Edo Almanac (Edo Saiseiki). Size: HxW 14.25 x 19.5 inches. Oban tate-e. Unframed Japanese woodblock diptych set, two sheets (the middle and right panels), originally from a triptych of three sheets. The two sheets gently glued together along the shared border. Condition: Very Good. Strong impression with the blocks apparently little worn. Almost no wrinkles or soiling or fading. No holes observed. Margins are trimmed. Unbacked. Two tape remnants to the back of the center sheet. Comments: Presumed early state of early printing. Bright aniline dye colors include purple, reddish-orange, pink, green, deep blue, sea-foam blue, medium brown, and light yellow. Masterful with regard to composition, color and dramatic intensity. Compare this 1865 print to the artist's debut print of 1853, when the artist was 14, a triptych titled, Bunji Gannen Heiki no Ichimon Horobi Kaichu ni Ochiiru Zu. (In 1185 the Heiki Clan sank to their doom in the sea.) See pp. 28-29 of Yoshitoshi: the Splendid Decadent, by Shinichi Segi.

An excellent copy, partly unopened. Engraved folding frontispiece, 12 engraved plates, folding route map to rear. First edition of Livingstone's self-exculpatory account of the Zambesi expedition, of which the principal aim was to explore the river's mouths and tributaries in order to discover a navigable waterway into the interior. "In the course of the exploration of the Shiré Rver, Lake Shirwa was discovered, on April 18, 1859, and on September 16 [Livingstone] arrived at Lake Nyassa about two months before Dr. Roscher" (Mendelssohn). Despite these successes, the entire undertaking "had cost much more, and achieved much less, than expected. At least £30,000 had been spent on it (as much as on the Niger expedition of 1857-60). It had involved the deaths of Thornton and Mary Livingstone, and also missionaries of the LMS and UMCA, as well as several sailors. It had lasted six and a half years, though scarcely eighteen months were spent on travel above the Shire and Zambezi cataracts and on the Rovuma, due to sickness and logistical problems.

Gedruckt in 4000 Expl.; Braun zahlte Busch für sämtliche Rechte 1000 Gulden (ca. 3 Jahreslöhne eines Handwerkers), die Busch vorläufig zwar finanziell unabhängig machten, aber letztlich eine eher karge Bezahlung für den Megaseller waren; erst 1903 und nach zahlr. Neuauflagen leistete Braun zum 70. Geburtstag eine Kompensation von 20000 Mark (Busch verschenkte diese an 2 hannöversche Krankenhäuser). Die Kennzeichen der Erstausgabe sind: S. 17 mit Punkt am Schluß; S. 31 Zeile 1 mit "Jeder" gegen Zeile 2 eingerückt; auf S. 43 der obere Holzschnitt nicht koloriert; auf S. 51 folgen hinter "Bösewichter" in der 2. Zeile ein Punkt und ein Strich (". -") ; S. 52 mit dem Setzerfehler "geschroben" statt "geschroten"; S. 53 linksseitig mit sieben Gedankenstrichen; die zarte Teilkolorierung mittels Schablone; gedruckt von den Holzstöcken (wie die folgenden 3 weiteren Ausgaben).
