The United States Sanitary Commission (USSC) was a private relief agency created by federal legislation on June 18, 1861, to support sick and wounded soldiers of the U.S. Army during the American Civil War. It operated across the North, raised an estimated $25 million in Civil War era revenue. The president was Henry Whitney Bellows, and Frederick Law Olmsted acted as executive secretary.

        TELETES, Carte Philosophique et Mathématique Accompagn&eacute;e du Calendrier magique et perp&eacute;tuel, (en partie) contenant la contemplation des choses les plus profondes, et les plus secrettes, avec la connoissance complette de la philosophie

      In-plano (64 x 46,5 cm), bound in half green leather, green covers, gilt title on spine. Paper covers bound inside, title page, seven lithographic plates, of which five on double page.PROVENANCE: Manly Palmer Hall's copy, with his monogram "mPh" inlaid in paper in the lower right corner of the title page and first double page plate. A typescript leaf inside the book contains the following information: "The TELETES is listed as No. 97 in the catalog of the M. Lionel Hauser collection of esoteric books offered for sale at auction by Sotheby and Co., London, April 16, 1934. The catalog description is extremely brief: as follows: Brahe (Tycho) and T. du Chenteau, plates, wrappers, published in Turin, 1866. The work is of very large size, height nearly 25 inches, width 18 inches. On the title page is the word "Teletes", underneath which is a heavy cross and a capital "Y". It is said to be based on a work of Tycho Brahe dated 1582 which was apparently reprinted by T. du Chenteau in 1775. While it is certainly based upon the calendar of Tycho Brahe published in 1582, engraved by Theodore de Bry (we also have an original example), it has been enlarged and expanded with illustrations taken from the writings of Robert Fludd and with additional ornaments from various sources. The work is too large to be photostated, and several of the plates are double page. The engraving is passable, but much more crude that the original work of Theodore de Bry. It is printed on a good grade of heavy paper and is bound in a heavy, dull green paper wrap-around cover with the simple word "Teletes" on the front. There are twelve leaves in the book printed on one side only. In addition to the title page, there is a preliminary leaf printed on both sides followed by five double page plates." (Lionel Hauser was an Ancient Member of the Board Council of the Theosophic Society in France. He was a banker, the cousin of Marcel Proust and his financial adviser. )The work is immensely rare, we were not able to trace any other copy of this edition sold in an auction since then. There were a very few number of autographed copies printed. OCLC listed 2 more copies worldwide. The work is based on the Calendarium Magicum issued by Theodore de Bry in 1620 and edited by Grosschedel von Aicha. However recent studies have pointed there is no evidence of any connection with Tycho Brahe. The Calendarium was reissued in 1775 in a modified form by Du Chanteau. It was printed at the Chateau de Schaerbeeck, Bruxelles. New elements were added to it from the works of Robert Fludd, Mylius and Georg von Welling. As such, the whole chart became more elaborated. Finally, the masonic symbolism was also introduced by placing the two columns Jakin and Bohaz on the first sheet. This huge Chart was reprinted as an autographed copy by Giuseppe Wopaletsky in 1866 in Torino, with some modifications to the original chart and the copper engravings were replaced by lithographs. At the same time a new preliminary leaf printed on both sides was added. This leaf listed some works, probably considered as the source of inspiration for the Chart but also a lot of references to the different books of the Bible. Some new engravings were also included. Du Chanteau (sometimes written as Du Chenteau, Touzay on his real name) was a mathematician, member of an organisation knwon as the "Society of Unknown Philosophers". Best known for a little work: "Le Grand Livre de la Nature ou l'Apocalypse Philosophique et Hermetique" (1790), he was also in search for the secret of the Philosopher's Stone. According to Claude Antoine Thory, a distinguished french masonic writer, Du Chanteau's "Carte Philosophique et mathematique" contains the Great Mysteries of the Elus-Coens. The Chart in fact is a more elaborated copy of two other works: Tycho Brahe's "Calendarium Naturale Perpetuum Magicum" engraved in 1582, and Esprit Sabbathier's "Idealis Umbra Sapientiae Generalis" from 1679. Du Chanteau was a member of "Les Philalethes", organised in 1773 at the Lodge of the United Friends (La Loge des Amies Reunies) from Paris. The members of this Lodge were all initiates in occult sciences and hermetics. They were also practicing alchemy and theurgy and had also contacts with a lot of non masonic hermetic Orders. Among them were the Marquis de Chefdebien, the alchymist Clavières, Savalette de Langes, the Prince d'Assia de Beverley. It was in the intention of Du Chanteau (declared in the text below the title of the Chart) to amend Brahe's Chart and to rectify the tables and magical characters which in his opinion were not accurate. He points to the legend that made possible the distinction between the elements which are in strict conformity with the original, those which he thought to modify the details, and the new pieces added by him. In the end, the Chart presents a huge mathematical synthesis of the Universe, enriched with theosophical, masonic, kabbalistic and alchemical symbolism, which makes Du Chanteau to declare: "La fameuse Carte de Tycho-Brahe sur les nombres, ne fait qu'une septieme partie de cet ouvrage dans lequel elle se trouve incluse"(inscribed on the double folio title page of the Chart).Condition: Very good, sporadically foxing on the back of the cover paper wrappers, minimal foxing on the title page. In this Torino autographed reprint of the original Chart the name of "Du Chenteau" was wrong printed as "Du Cahteau". In this particular copy it was slightly erased and written correct with black ink, hard to notice without a close examination. It seems this correction was calligraphically made before the Sotheby Auction, as in the catalogue and on the paper typescript present inside the work the name is written correctly. All engravings in perfect condition, a splendid copy with a remarkable provenance.

        THE DREAM OF GERONTIUS.

      London, Burns, Lambert, and Oates, 1866. SECOND EDITION IN LIMP CLOTH, SAME YEAR AS THE FIRST. 1866. Small 8vo, approximately 120 x 75 mm, 4¾ x 3 inches, pages: [4], [5]-55, collation: A1-D4, original publisher's blind stamped brown limp cloth, gilt title to upper cover, original pale yellow endpapers. Slight rubbing to binding, first pastedown slightly creased, title page has slight blemish at the bottom due to the endpaper adhering to it, shallow turning crease to top corners of first few pages, otherwise a very good copy. The Dream of Gerontius consists of the prayer of a dying man, and angelic and demonic responses. The poem, written after Newman's conversion from Anglicanism to Roman Catholicism, explores his new Catholic-held beliefs of the journey from death through Paradise to God and thence to Purgatory. The poem follows the main character as he nears death and then reawakens as a soul, preparing for judgment. Newman uses the death and judgement of Gerontius as a prism through which the reader is drawn to contemplation of their own fear of death and sense of unworthiness before God. His depiction of the overwhelmed Gerontius in Phase Seven of the poem, who begs to be taken for purgatorial cleansing rather than diminish the perfection of God and his courts of Saints and Angels by his continued presence, has become a popular expression of man's desire for healing through redemptive suffering. This scene of the poem has done much for the rehabilitation of the doctrine of purgatory which had previously come to be seen as a fearful terror rather than a state of final purification essentially positive in nature. Newman said that the poem "was written by accident - and it was published by accident". He wrote it up in fair copy from fifty-two scraps of paper between 17 January and 7 February 1865 and published it in May and June of the same year, in two parts in the Jesuit periodical The Month. The poem inspired a choral work of the same name by Edward Elgar in 1900. (Wikipedia). MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE, FURTHER IMAGES ON REQUEST. POSTAGE AT COST.

        Exotic ornithology containing figures and descriptions of new or rare species of American birds

      London Bernard Quaritch -1869 1866 - Imperial 4to., 100 hand-coloured lithographs by Joseph Smit, red half morocco, gilt, raised bands, top edge gilt, a very handsome example. Published in 13 parts between October 1866 and November 1869, the preface states it was originally intended to cover "the many new and rare ornithologicalic forms that have been recently discovered in nearly every part of the world's surface. As it progressed, however, the authors found that it would be more convenient to restrict it to the birds of the Neotropical Region -- that is America south of the United States. No other part of the world can vie with Tropical America in the richness of its avifauna; and nowhere else have so many brilliant discoveries been recently made." "The authors' original plan was that their work should form a continuation of well-known atlases, such as Buffon and Daubenton. According to the plan, the work was to give figures and descriptions of new and rare birds from all parts of the world; however, the authors soon limited the task to the birds of the Neotropical region" (Anker). "The plates are all by Mr. Smit; they are very beautiful. The whole number of species figured is 104, referring to 51 genera. In most cases, a systematic list of the other American species of the same genus is appended to the final illustration of each, thereby enlarging the scope and greatly increasing the value of the work. Each of the species is systematically treated with synonymy, diagnosis and critical and biographical matter. The authors are the highest authorities in neotropical ornithology and this work is a monument of erudition, industry and artistic excellence" (Coues). "Smit has done an excellent job with these plates, for the lovingly detailed birds stand out sharply against their backgrounds of trees, branches and leaves. It is obvious that Smit enjoyed painting the leaves as well as the birds, for they are beautifully executed."

        Du rhumatisme viscéral : thèse présentée au concours pour l'agrégation (section de médecine et de médecine légale) et soutenue à la Faculté de médecine de Paris, le 14 mars 1866 COPY SIGNED

      Paris : P. Asselin 1866 - In-8° broché, couverture d'attente en parfait état, pièce de titre contrecollée. Bel et long envoi autographe de Benjamin Ball sur la page de garde, 167 pp., 3 tableaux dépl. et 2 planches lithographiées h.t., broché, couverture muette moderne (papier marbré), quelques rousseurs, très bon état. Edition originale de la thèse d'agrégation de Benjamin Ball. Ball traite des manifestations viscérales du rhumatisme articulaire. Les atteintes cardiaques sont illustrées par deux planches. Les atteintes du système nerveux sont très développées (pp. 67-103). Ball a ajouté in fine un chapitre sur "les affections viscérales qui se rattachent au rhumatisme musculaire". Benjamin Ball (1834-1893) fut reçu à ce concours, devint médecin des hôpitaux puis obtint en 1877, grâce à l'appui de Lasègue et de Charcot, la chaire des maladies mentales et de l'encéphale, qui venait d'être créée à Sainte-Anne.

        THE DREAM OF GERONTIUS.

      London Burns Lambert and Oates 1866 - SECOND EDITION IN LIMP CLOTH, SAME YEAR AS THE FIRST. 1866. Small 8vo, approximately 120 x 75 mm, 4¾ x 3 inches, pages: [4], [5]-55, collation: A1-D4, original publisher's blind stamped brown limp cloth, gilt title to upper cover, original pale yellow endpapers. Slight rubbing to binding, first pastedown slightly creased, title page has slight blemish at the bottom due to the endpaper adhering to it, shallow turning crease to top corners of first few pages, otherwise a very good copy. The Dream of Gerontius consists of the prayer of a dying man, and angelic and demonic responses. The poem, written after Newman's conversion from Anglicanism to Roman Catholicism, explores his new Catholic-held beliefs of the journey from death through Paradise to God and thence to Purgatory. The poem follows the main character as he nears death and then reawakens as a soul, preparing for judgment. Newman uses the death and judgement of Gerontius as a prism through which the reader is drawn to contemplation of their own fear of death and sense of unworthiness before God. His depiction of the overwhelmed Gerontius in Phase Seven of the poem, who begs to be taken for purgatorial cleansing rather than diminish the perfection of God and his courts of Saints and Angels by his continued presence, has become a popular expression of man's desire for healing through redemptive suffering. This scene of the poem has done much for the rehabilitation of the doctrine of purgatory which had previously come to be seen as a fearful terror rather than a state of final purification essentially positive in nature. Newman said that the poem "was written by accident &#150; and it was published by accident". He wrote it up in fair copy from fifty-two scraps of paper between 17 January and 7 February 1865 and published it in May and June of the same year, in two parts in the Jesuit periodical The Month. The poem inspired a choral work of the same name by Edward Elgar in 1900. (Wikipedia). MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE, FURTHER IMAGES ON REQUEST. POSTAGE AT COST.

        Feminist Anna Dickinson Refuses to Apologize

      1866 - Autograph Letter Signed, to A. Boyd. August 1, 1866. 2 pp. "Dr. Holmes somewhere says that, 'Apology is but one form of Egotism.' So I shall make none. Nevertheless, - I had I earlier seen your letter, which had been in my hands, I should have sooner answered it ."Anna Elizabeth Dickinson (1842-1932) was a gifted orator and the first woman to speak before Congress. She was removed from a clerkship at the U.S. Mint for criticizing General George McClellan's handling of the war. She campaigned for the Republicans in 1863, and continued her lyceum speaking tour after the war. After a stint acting in Broadway plays, her sister had her committed to a mental institution. Upon her release, she sued those who had her committed and the newspapers that had labeled her insane. She won in court, but the press retaliated by stopping coverage.

        Gorge, Lookout Mountain

      , 1866. 1866. Mounted albumen photograph, approximately 10 3/4 x 14 1/4 inches. Printed caption beneath the image. Unique large albumen Civil War photograph by George Barnard.Barnard had worked as a photographer documenting the Civil War from about 1861, initially working for Mathew Brady and Edward Anthony, and then, from December 1863, for the Topographical Branch of the Department of Engineers, Army of the Cumberland, based in Nashville. Under the direction of Captain of Engineers Orlando M. Poe, Barnard ran the army's photographic operations. Bernard continued to work for the Union army until June 1865, recording a number of well-known locations, and taking part in Sherman's campaign, behind the front lines, taking photographs in his capacity as an official army photographer.In 1866, Barnard would publish his monumental Photographic Views of Sherman's Campaign . "[It] is a remarkable work of great symbolic, historic, and artistic power. It is a result of a complex interweaving of Barnard's personal vision, nineteenth-century pictorial conventions, and larger ideas about war and the American landscape. The album was the most ambitious project of Barnard's career, and has long been recognized as a landmark in the history of photography" (Davis p.170). Indeed, the work has been called the first great landscape photobook.Interestingly, the above image is not found in Barnard's Photographic Views of Sherman's Campaign, instead comprising part of the impressive work done at Lookout Mountain for General Orlando M. Poe and the Corps of Topographical Engineers. "Barnard's photographs from the summit of Lookout Mountain were taken in several positions. It is clear that he was fascinated by the aesthetic potential of this site, and used a set of visual motifs in a variety of permutations. These motifs included the majestic sweep of the landscape itself, the sinuous path of the Tennessee River, the contrast between rocky outcroppings in the foreground and the forested landscape below, and the presence of self-absorbed spectators within this natural grandeur. While central to the landscape art of this era, these themes had rarely been so eloquently expressed in photography" (Davis, p. 67).Keith F. Davis. George N. Barnard Photographer of Sherman's Campaign (Kansas City, 1990).

        Two folk-art pencil drawings of African-American freedmen workers on the Mississippi River paddle-wheeler W H Osborn

      Mississippi River between St. Louis and New Orleans, 1866. Unbound. Very good. These two hand-drawn naïve pencil sketches appear on opposite sides of an 8" x 12.5" leaf of ruled notepaper. The smaller of the two drawings measures approximately 4" x 4.5" and the larger 4.5" x 12.5". Both are captioned. The sheet has three horizontal storage folds with some spots of faint brown staining. One side shows some pencil transfer from heavy penciling of the subject's face and hair that occurred when the leaf was folded. The smaller image, which is titled "Steward - Stmr W.H. Osborn," shows an upper body profile of a finely dressed African-American wearing a high-collar, cravat, and coat. The larger is a full-length drawing, titled The Lamp Lighter on Steamer W.H. Osborn," of a different similarly dressed African-American man adjusting an oil lamp. The W.H. Osborn was built in 1865 by Commodore William J. Koutz, a riverboat pilot and captain who built, bought, managed what was said to be the largest fleet of steamships operating on western and southern rivers. The Osborn, which operated as a St. Louis - New Orleans packet, was practically destroyed in a horrendous fire in January 1867 but eventually rebuilt. Jonathan O. Simmons was a wealthy plantation owner who had moved south from Minnesota after the Civil War and purchased Island 93 and the adjacent land on both sides of the Mississippi where he employed African-Americans hired via the Freedmen's Bureau to harvest lumber and grow cotton that he shipped north and south on riverboats. This is a great pair of folk-art renderings of recently freed slaves who found employment of a Mississippi paddle wheeler. Very scarce. As of 2017, no similar folk art drawings of freed African-American steamboat rivermen are held by institutions per OCLC, none are in the trade, and none are shown in auction records at ABPC, Rare Book Hub, or Worthpoint.
