        Fountain Savannah, Ga

      [New York 1866 - A fine copy of a stunning image from Barnard's 'Photographic Views of Sherman's Campaign', an album which is one of the two greatest photographic monuments to the Civil War and 'a landmark in the history of photography' (Keith F. Davis). A contemporary reviewer wrote of this image and its companions: 'These photographs. surpass any other photographic views which have been produced in this country - whether relating to the war or otherwise' ('Harper's Weekly', 8 December, 1866, p.771) This image comes from George N. Barnard's album titled Photographic Views of Sherman's Campaign, embracing scenes of the occupation of Nashville, the great battles around Chattanooga and Lookout Mountain, the campaign of Atlanta, March to the Sea, and the Great Raid through the Carolinas (1866). This album, together with Alexander Gardner's Photographic Sketchbook of the Civil War (1866) are the two greatest photographic monuments of the Civil War. Between them, they contain some of the most famous images of the War. Though some of Barnard's photographs in this series offer poignant reminders of the trail of destruction left across the Confederacy by General William T. Sherman's army in 1864 to 1865, the photographs in Savannah record that beautiful city's avoidance of destruction. The Confederate Army evacuation and subsequent civilian surrender saved Savannah from the destruction of bombardment and the agony of siege. This splendid fountain (Forsyth Park Fountain, which is still standing) in a peaceful park, handsomely photographed by Barnard, evokes the blessings of peace and creativity rather than the viciousness of war. Two Federal soldiers can be seen enjoying the beauty of the scene in the background. Cf. De Renne p.1317; cf. Howes B150, "b."; cf. Sabin 3462; cf. Taft Photography and the American Scene pp.232 & 486. See also: George N. Barnard Photographic Views of Sherman's Campaign. with a new preface by Beaumont Newhall New York: 1977 Keith F. Davis. George N. Barnard Photographer of Sherman's Campaign Kansas City, Miss.: 1990. Albumen photograph from a negative taken in 1866, 10 x 13 inches, on original two-tone gilt-edged thin card mount, 16 1/8 x 20 inches, with plate title and photographer's credit.

        An Appeal for the Horse

      Adelaide: David Gall, 1866. Small octavo, with six tinted lithographs of sketches by the author; fine in original purple cloth. 'to all animals by kindness and consideration...'. Scarce first edition: an unusually charismatic book promoting the natural rights of the horse in Australia. George Hamilton (1812-1883) was a pioneer grazier and amateur artist who later served as inspector of the South Australian mounted police. Hamilton arrived in Sydney in 1837 and overlanded sheep to rich pasture country in Victoria. He settled in South Australia in 1839 where he was an active participant in the local horse races, and a keen artist, exhibiting in Adelaide's first two art exhibitions. In 1864 the {i Adelaide Advertiser} praised his accurate renderings, proclaiming his equine sketches 'have no equals in the colony'. Some of Hamilton's work was used to illustrate famous inland exploration accounts published by John Eyre and George Grey. A very early South Australian lithographer, Hamilton owned a small press which he used to print his own work. In total Hamilton published three short booklets denouncing the poor treatment of horses in Australia. He was opposed to breaking in and other cruelties, contrasting conditions in Australia with the gentle treatment of horses in other cultures (notably Arabia). {i An Appeal for the Horse }was well received and was re-issued in Melbourne some years later.

        Sport and Sportsmen: a Book of Recollections

      London: Hurst and Blackett, 1866. Octavo, frontispiece and illustrated title- page; a very good copy in contemporary half calf and marbled boards. First edition of a scarce collection of sporting memoirs, mainly set in England, Wales and the Scottish Highlands. However Stretton had been to the Victorian diggings in the 1850s, and his long final chapter gives a wonderful 60-page reminiscence of a kangaroo hunting expedition outside Melbourne with "King Tom" of the Yarra Yarra tribe in 1852. "Two Days with a Native Chief" is in fact quite a remarkable memoir for its period, showing considerable understanding not only of the skills of the Aboriginal people, but also some knowledge of and sympathy for the hardships endured by them throughout the period of white settlement. It is also a ripping yarn of exotic hunting. This title is not recorded by Ferguson, though he does note the same author's {i Memoirs of a chequered life }(London, 1862).

König von Frankreich und Navarra, genannt "der Sonnenkönig", frz. le Roi-Soleil. seit 1643. Szene in einem prunkvollen Saal mit Moliere, umgeben von Beratern und Dienern, "Louis XIV et Moliere".

      . Stahlstich v. Edouard Girandet n. J.L. Gerome b. Goupil & Cie.,, dat. 1866, 42,5 x 73,5. Er gilt als klassischer Vertreter des höfischen Absolutismus. Der Leitsatz des Absolutismus "L'Etat, c'est moi! - Der Staat bin ich!" wird ihm jedoch fälschlicherweise zugeschrieben. Er festigte die Macht der Krone durch den Ausbau der Verwaltung, durch die Bekämpfung der Opposition des Adels und durch die Förderung der französischen Wirtschaft. Die Hofkultur wurde ganz auf die Person des Herrschers zugeschnitten. Der König förderte Künste und Wissenschaften, was eine Blütezeit der französischen Kultur zur Folge hatte. Ludwig XIV. vertrat eine expansive und kriegerische Außenpolitik, so dass Frankreich unter seiner Regierung eine stark dominierende Stellung in Europa gewann. Mit zweiundsiebzig Jahren auf dem Thron war er das am längsten amtierende Staatsoberhaupt in der Geschichte Europas.

        A Fugitive General Presents His Memoir to a Confederate General, Who Then Adds his Marginalia

      Toronto, Canada 1866 - Signed Book. Presentation Copy of Early's A Memoir of the Last Year of the War for Independence. (Toronto: Lovell & Gibson, 1866). 144 pp., 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 in. Throughout, the recipient, Confederate General William Payne, adds his own notes and extensive comments detailing battles, disagreeing with Early's assessments, correcting dates, and commenting on Early's character. Confederate General Jubal A. Early presented this copy of his memoir to fellow Confederate General William H. Payne inscribed on the title page: "General Payne/With the compliments of J A Early/Toronto C. W./Jany 10th 1867." Payne's ownership note, "William H. Payne from Lt Gen Early. 1867" appears on the front pastedown.Most ironically, Payne disagrees with Early's conclusion and assessment of Robert E. Lee at war's end:"These people have always been eager to claim that Genl Lee foresaw &c , was preparing &c &c for our defeat & give up the game. I never believed it of him, & I know that he felt that there was always time enough to sue for terms-that it was better to spin it out gloriously to the last then fall one hour to soon - "one hour of freedom is worth a whole eternity of bondage." " (pp. 137-138).However, Payne is blind to the true nature of bondage in the South. Despite all their claims to independence and states' rights, the South was ultimately fighting their so-called "war of independence" to extend the slave system as a way of life. Confederate Vice President Alexander Stephens admitted as much in March 1861:"The new Constitution has put at rest forever all the agitating questions relating to our peculiar institutions-African slavery as it exists among us-the proper status of the negro in our form of civilization. This was the immediate cause of the late rupture and present revolution. .Our new Government is founded upon exactly the opposite ideas; its foundations are laid, its cornerstone rests, upon the great truth that the negro is not equal to the white man; that slavery, subordination to the superior race, is his natural and moral condition."Other excerpts of Payne's extensive handwritten comments:"This was a very brilliant affair for our Cavalry. Some thought that more might have been made out of it. Questionable." (43)"Lees cavalry had not then reached the Valley & the criticism has no reference nor application to that division Page 78 B-76 B" (p. 75)"The skirmishing was incessant. I think I was under fire nearly every day for the month preceding battle of Winchester & confess I did not exactly understand it. It mystified me sometimes as much as the enemy. I often believed we were going to attack, when we were only bullying." ( p. 83)"This is true Early was badly slandered in this respect. I know personally, of my own observation, that he was entirely sober at Cedar Creek. I took a drink with him just as the attack on our left was made & I am strongly persuaded, it was his only drink that day." (p. 120)"The entire force was 650 of which 500 was Paynes Brigade, which alone was concerned in the attack. Its commander having taken the responsibility of making it after Genl Roper had proposed to abandon it. It was a complete success." (p. 127)Historical BackgroundFollowing the surrender of the Army of Northern Virginia, Early fled southwest to Texas in hopes of finding a Confederate force still in the field. Unsuccessful, he fled across the border into Mexico. From there he sailed to Cuba before settling in Toronto, Canada. He was officially pardoned in 1868 by President Andrew Johnson and returned to Virginia in 1869.William H. F. Payne enlisted as a private in the Confederate army shortly after the secession of his native Virginia and, by the end of the war, had risen to the rank of brigadier general.Jubal Anderson Early (1816-1894), graduated from West Point in 1837 and served briefly in the Second Seminole War (1835-1842) and the Mexican War (1846-1848) prior to the Civil War.At first against secessi.
