        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.

        A stunning collection of eight Connecticut Civil War reunion medals and ribbons from the Grand Army of the Republic and the Seventh Connecticut Regiment

      Various, 1866-1914 The Grand Army of the Republic, or GAR, was an organization composed of Civil War veterans from the Union Army. It was founded in 1866 in Decatur, Illinois, and finally disbanded in 1959, when its last member died. The GAR turned into the first, and a powerful, political advocacy group in American politics. At its peak it had more than 490,000 members. The Seventh Connecticut Volunteer Infantry was first banded together in New Haven on September 13, 1861 and was finally mustered out in the same city on July 20, 1865. There was a 36.4% casualty rate in the unit, and it served in various conflicts throughout the war. 1) The original GAR medal, originally affixed to an American flag ribbon. Approximately 1.75? in diameter. Has a beautiful relief of veterans joining hands around a family with the dates ?1861? and ?1866? inscribed in it. Fine condition.2) The ?26th National G.A.R. Encampment? Ribbon for the ?Stanley Post / No.11 / New Britain / Conn.? chapter of the GAR. 2.5

        Blanchard's Map of Illinois and Parts of Adjacent States, Showing the Counties, Towns & Railroads

      1866 - This extremely rare pocket map was published in 1866 by Rufus Blanchard. Rufus Blanchard was one of the most well known map publishers in Chicago during the late nineteenth century. Blanchard was born in New England and his first job was a hunter & trapper in the Ohio wilderness. In 1849, Blanchard returned to New York and began his career in the map publication business with C. Morse, son of Samuel Morse, inventor of the telegraph. In 1854, he opened his map store in Chicago where he specialized in mapmaking, publishing as well as writing histories of Chicago, Cook County, and the Northwest Territories. Blanchard published the first of his many street guides in 1857 and continued to produce quality maps until his death in 1904. In 1867, Blanchard went into business with his 25 year old nephew, George F. Cram. The George F. Cram company is still a leader in the industry of maps and globes. This is a stunning, hand colored map of Illinois. It has 2 black & white illustrations of the Bald Eagle and the Chamber of Commerce building in Chicago. It also shows parts of Iowa and Missouri in great detail. It's in very good condition, with only one minor paper tear on the bottom border, as well as some minor paper loss in some of the folds.

        The Rocky Mountains (Lander's Peak)

      Edward Bierstadt, New York 1866 - In 1859, Bierstadt joined an expedition to the West led by Colonel Frederick W. Lander. This work was painted four years later in New York as a tribute to Lander who died in 1862 after a distinguished military career. Bierstadt found it fitting to name the central summit in memory of his fallen friend. The painting was a huge success and was quickly bought by the English railroad magnate James McHenry for $25,000. Its beauty lies in Bierstadt's faithful delineation of the Shoshone Indian village encampment and carefully rendered foliage in the foreground with a middle distance featuring a reflective body of water and the exaggerated snow-capped peak in the background towering over the entire scene. It perfectly embodies the idea of Manifest Destiny and appealed to the imaginations of most Americans who had only read about our untamed frontier. The oil painting is in The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. Due to its huge popular success, Bierstadt immediately asked James Smillie, America's premier engraver, to produce an engraving. However, it was not until December 1866, after three laborious years in the making, that this engraving was published. Nancy Anderson and Linda S. Ferber, Albert Bierstadt Art & Enterprise , pp. 272-273, number 77, illustrated figure 80. Steel engraving by James Smillie. Proof before title, signed by Bierstadt and Smillie. After the painting, completed in 1863. Fine condition. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

      O. D. Case & Co., Hartford. 1864 & 1866 - Complete restoration by a professional bookbinder. One-half new leather spine (natural leather) with raised bands (4) with gold titles on black. The rest of the restoration is using the original natural leather boards and endpapers. A very early history of events leading up to the U. S. Civil War written by Horace Greeley (1811-1872), founder of the New York Tribune newspaper and presidential candidate in the election of 1872. Greeley died before the electoral votes were counted - not knowing he had lost in a landslide. Greeley was not a friend of Grant or Lincoln but opposed slavery and supported the cause of the American Civil War. Out of this grew his book -The American Conflict - which is a history of events leading up to the Civil War as well as a history of the war itself from the side of the Union point of view. Volume I (1864) is a First Edition and has 648 pages plus many maps and illustrations. Volume II (1866) has 782 pages, also, with a multitude of illustrations and maps. Both volumes of this important early work of the Civil War are in Very Good condition. Rare in this condition. Volume I (1864) First Edition. Vol. II (1866). Book condition: Very Good.

        Industritställningen i Stockholm 1866 / Industrial exhibition in Stockholm 1866]

      [1866] 1866 - Overzized albumen photo mounted on card board. Photo 43 x 34,5 cm. Card board 55,5 x 44 cm. The photo shows the main hall of the exhibition with "Molins fontän", here still in plaster. It was later iron cast and placed roughly at the same spot in Kungsträdgården. The photo might have been published by the firm Eurenius & Quist who was the official photographers of the exhibition. The firm issued several very large photos of the event. It might also be by Johannes Jaeger who executed a famous photo of the opening ceremony. Often called Sweden s first press photo, since a copy was delivered to the king within a couple of hours. Again it might be by someone else. You can see people sitting at the benches, some of them transparent since they were moving when the photo was exposed. Such a large photo required a long exposure time. Across the hall you can see a sign for the norwegian section of the exhibition. At the front is a sign with the company name "Bing & Gröndahl". A scarce photo in a very large format. The glass negative must have been quite a challenge to handle. A repaired tear in the lower left corner of the photo. Some dirt, foxing and creases to the card board. Some dirt to the verso. The photo with nice tonal range.

        Sport and Sportsmen: a Book of Recollections

      Hurst and Blackett, London 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 Memoirs of a chequered life (London, 1862).

        Relaçao de una Viagem a Venezuela, Nova Granada e Equador pelo Conselheiro

      - Bruxellas, A. Lacroix, Verboeckhoven et Cie., 1866, 22 x 16 cm., hol. piel, 393 págs. + 1 cuadro plegado + 7 págs. de notas musicales + 17 láminas + 12 mapas y planos, 6 de ellos plegados. (Muy ilustrada y bella primera edición. El diplomático brasileño Miguel María Lisboa fue Consejero del Emperador, Ministro de Hacienda y socio-fundador del Instituto Histórico y Geográfico Brasileño. Lisboa había entrado en el servicio diplomático en la década de 1830 siendo encargado para que estableciera relaciones diplomáticas con otros países latinoamericanos. Hasta ese momento, Brasil había permanecido virtualmente aislado en América del Sur, pero la guerra de los Estados Unidos contra México en los años 40 terminó por persuadir al Imperio brasileño de la necesidad de emprender una activa política exterior en América que intentara contrarrestar la creciente influencia de Estados Unidos. En su libro narra la expedición que emprendió en 1852 por Venezuela, Colombia y Ecuador describiendo detalladamente aspectos geográficos, históricos y socio-culturales de los tres países, los personajes que conoció, las costumbres y sus impresiones sobre ciertos temas. Es, sin duda, uno de los primeros libros de viajes escrito por un brasileño). AMÉRICA
