        Military History of Wisconsin / Copy of [Shiloh] Lt. O.A. Southmayd

      Clarke & Co., Chicago 1866 - Chicago: Clarke & Co., 1866. First Edition. Large, thick octavo, 1,022 pp. with 12 steel engraved portraits. Full calf, two gilt-lettered black morocco spine labels. Covers very scuffed, spine ends and tips of corners worn bare, amateur tape repair at joints, front hinge, and verso of title page. Blind stamp of the Historical Society of Montana, as well as its spine-affixed label. The name of O.A. Southmayd [2nd Lt., I Company, 18th Wisconsin Regiment] is stamped on front and back covers, making this presumably his copy. Overall, just Good; contents, however, are VG+ to NF. Association copy of the extremely rare 1866 first edition of E.B. Quiner's much sought-after compendium of factual information on the title subject, one which has been so admired that a year 2000 reprint has recently been published, sponsored by the St. Croix Valley Civil War Round Table. Quiner covers virtually every detail of every Wisconsin regiment in his famous opus, making it a Civil War specific reference source unexceeded in information quality and quantity, to the point that even genealogists seek it. O.A. Southmayd, whose name is stamped into the calf leather covers, front and back, was a 2nd Lieutenant in the 18th Wisconsin Regiment during its courageous and famous performance at the battle of Shiloh, where he ultimately was one of eleven commissioned officers captured at the culmination of the intense Hornet's Nest action there (more at: 18th Wisconsin). This copy was presumably either presented to him or stamped by him afterwards, more likely the former. With that status, clearly not replaceable. L18 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

First published in twenty parts, of which the first seventeen were issued by Chapman & Hall, and the final three parts by Bentley. As for this book issue, with a different imprint in each volume, Sadleir says, "When Bentley took over ... he assumed the novel was to be published in one thick volume ... and accordingly prepared a title without volume number ... at the last moment Chapman & Hall insisted on a continuing share in the venture, and were so far able to enforce their claim, that a two-volume book set was hastily devised, divided as to title-page imprints between the rivals." Some light foxing throughout, covers a bit darkened and some light, professional cosmetic restoration to corners and spine ends, else very good, tight copies. Housed in a slipcase with leather label on spine and titles stamped in gold gilt. SADLEIR 2023a. GRAFF 3453. SABIN 69049.

        Ehon Taka Kagami [or Picture-Book Mirror of Hawks],.

      [Tokyo, 1866-80]. 5 volumes. Small 4to (230 x 160mm). With 83 full-page woodcuts. Stitched Japanese-style into orig. yellow paper wrappers, each vol. with a white paper title-slip printed in red. First and only edition. "...The book was published at Tokyo and the editor's name was Nakamura Sasuke... The 'Mirror of Hawks' is certainly a very comprehensive and instructive treatise on falconry. It is rare, only seven complete and incomplete copies having been traced in European libraries" (Schwerdt). /Kawanabe Kyosai (1831-89) was a Kano painter, printmaker, and illustrator, the son of a Samurai. At the age of six he entered the studio of Utagawa Kuniyoshi, and from the age of nine became a student of the academic Kano school, studying under Maemura Towa and then Tohaku Chinshin, who gave him the name "Toiku". He exhibited at the Vienna International Exposition in 1873, and at the first and second Paris Japanese Art Exhibitions of 1883 and 1884. In the early years of the Meiji period (1868-1912) he attained considerable popularity with his political caricatures, for which he was arrested and imprisoned in 1870. His famous "Kyosai Gadan" (1887), an attempt to show a variety of traditional Japanese and Chinese painting styles, was widely appreciated in Europe, and was issued with English captions for the export market. /Kyosai's "Ehon Taka Kagami" is the major resource on Japanese falconry, with wonderful woodcuts of hawks, field work, breeding, hoods, gloves, and other associated tools and items of equipment. It records the ancient Japanese methods of care, raising, and training of the Siberian Goshawk, considered the best variety for use in falconry since ancient times. //Harting 371. Schwerdt III p. 245; see G. Schack. Kyosais Falkenjagd.

        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.
