        Gardner's Photographic Sketch Book of the War

      Washington: Philp & Solomons, 1866. 2 volumes, oblong folio. (12 1/4 x 16 3/4 inches). [53]; [53]pp. of text. Mounted on guards throughout, tinted lithographic titles with lettering within integral pictorial borders, 100 original albumen silver print photographs (each approximately 7 x 9 inches) each mounted on card within a lithographed frame with letterpress caption, each image accompanied by a page of letterpress description. Publisher's black morocco, the covers with decorative border tooled in gilt and blind, the upper covers with centrally-placed title and publisher's monogram blocked in gilt, the flat spines divided into six compartments by pairs of gilt fillets, marbled endpapers, gilt edges (expert repairs at joints). Housed in two black morocco backed boxes. A legendary and very rare photographically-illustrated book, with some of the most graphic scenes of the Civil War. One of the most important of American books, and a monument to early American photography. This work, the most famous collection of Civil War photographs, was published in an edition of no more than 200 sets. It includes many of the most celebrated and recognizable images of the war: "Burial Party, Cold Harbor," "A Harvest of Death," "Field Where General Reynolds Fell, Battle of Gettysburg," "President Lincoln on Battle-Field of Antietam," etc. The photographs are organized chronologically, beginning in 1862 and ending with the dedication of the monument at Bull Run to commemorate the Union soldiers who had died there. Unlike Brady, who was in the habit of placing his name on images made by his field operators, Gardner specifically credits each image to the particular photographer responsible, shedding light on the work of some of the most distinguished American photographers of the day. In addition to Gardner, the Sketch Book... includes work by Timothy O'Sullivan, William Pywell, D.B. Woodbury, David Knox, Barnard & Gibson, J. Reekie, and others. These images form perhaps the most important pictorial record of the Civil War, spanning the length of the conflict, from the aftermath of action at Centerville and Manassas in 1862, to the dedication of the monument at Bull Run in June 1865. This work "is one of the most important sources of information that we have on the subject, as from it we learn the names of many men who actually made the photographs of the Civil War, and were employed by Brady and Gardner" (Taft). "The photographs show the terrain of the battles (Bull Run, Manassas, Harper's Ferry, Gettysburg, etc.), encampments, headquarters of the troops, officers and enlisted men, soldiers in drill formation and in the field under fire, and the ruins left after the battles. Limitations in the process of photography did not permit work during the battles; the photographs are remarkable documents of the circumstantial evidence for war. Recent investigations suggest that not every site was recorded just as found by the photographer but that a certain amount of rearranging, including actually moving the corpses, was undertaken in some situations. The captions, conceived in poetic rather than terse journalistic terms, suggest that the authors saw their work as having the human significance we see in many of the photographs of today" (Goldschmidt & Naef). Gardner's work was published by the Washington, D.C. firm of Philp & Solomons, and carried the rather hefty price of $150. The one hundred photographs that were included were selected from a collection of over 3,000 negatives, and the lithographic titlepages were designed by Alfred R. Waud (though designated A.R. Ward on the titlepages), one of the most important illustrators of the day. The publishers issued two slightly separate versions of the book, one in 1865, and the other in 1866. This copy is from the 1866 issue, with the caption "Incidents of the War" removed from each mount. Goldschmidt & Naef Truthful Lens 68; Howes G64; Julie L. Mellby "Gardner's Photographic Sketch Book of the War" in Princeton University Library Chronicle (Winter, 2006), pp.435-40; Nevins II,p.14; Sabin 26635.

        Homographic Chart, of the State Officers and Members of the Second Nevada Legislature: Convened At Carson City, January, 1866

      Carson City, NV: John Church, State Printer. Very Good. 1866. Broadside. Folio broadside approx. 17" x 14", black text on cream paper with ornamental border; folded, in very good condition. Very slight water damage and sunning on the verso; does not affect the text. A rare and interesting Nevada imprint, listing 99 state officers, deputies, clerks, senators, and assemblymen, specifying their office, profession, marital status, place of birth, from where they came, how each voted in 1860, and offices previously held. Among those listed Assemblyman Orion Clemens, age 40 from Missouri, the former and only Secretary of Nevada Territory, and the older brother of Mark Twain. Twain's travels in Nevada with Orion were the inspiration for the semi-autobiographical book of travel, Roughing It. Together they went on a stagecoach journey west. Twain consulted Orion's diary to refresh his memory, and he borrowed heavily from his active imagination for many stories in the book. Unable to make it on an assemblyman's salary, and having failed in other political ambitions as well as a law practice, Clemens vacated the office and left Nevada eight months later. Not in Paher. OCLC locates the Berkeley copy only. Image cropped due to scanner bed size. More detailed images available upon request. ; 17" x 12" .

        Heiteres und Ernstes aus dem Soldatenleben eines alten Officiers.

      original Leinenband, Rundumgoldschnitt, 8, VI, 232 Seiten Zustand: Fadenheftung etwas gelockert, Vorsätze etwas fleckig, sonst gut Vorwort: Wenn ich mich in schon vorgerücktem Alter entschloß, meine Erlebnisse und Erfahrungen während einer fast dreißigjährigen Dienstzeit niederzuschreiben, so verfolgte ich dabei hauptsächlich den Zweck, jüngeren Kameraden einen Einblick zu geben, wie es vor mehr als vierzig Jahren in der Armee aussah und wie sich die Verhältnisse bis unmittelbar nach dem Feldzuge 1866 geändert, gebessert haben. Manches, was hier erzählt wird, dünkt heute kaum glaublich. Ich will mit der Veröffentlichtung meiner Erlebnisse außerdem den Zweck erreichen, daß von Seite der Herren Vorstände von Veteranen- und anderen patriotischen Vereinen den jüngeren Mitgliedern nahe gelegt werde, wie viel günstiger sich für die Angehörigen der Armee die Verhätlnisse gegen früher gestaltet haben. Wenn auch die physischen und geistigen Anforderungen heute mitunter gegen früher bedeutendere sein mögen, so wir zugegeben werden, daß das Ertragen von Strapazen dem Soldaten durch zweckmäßige Adjustierung und Ausrüstung und was die Hauptsache, durch die menschenwürdigere Behandlung leichter gemacht wird weiters dürfte durch die Veröffentlichung meiner Erzählungen manches bisher unwichtig Beurtheilte - und das betrifft Nordböhmen, als den im Feldzugsjahre 1866 stark betroffenen Theil - aufgeklärt werden. Indem ich somit meine Mittheilungen der Öffentlichkeit übergebe, sollen dieselben mit der ergebenen Bitte begleitet sein, es möge das Urtheil über manches darin Vorkommende wohlwollend sein gegenüber dem Verfasser.

Macmillan printed around 2,000 copies of the book in 1865, but both artist and author were unhappy with the poor quality printing and insisted it was reprinted before being published. Macmillan sold the rest of the print run to Appleton in New York who published a US edition using a new title page but with the first printing sheets from the 1865 London edition.

        Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

      New York: D. Appleton and Co., 1866. The First 'Obtainable' Edition of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland CARROLL, Lewis. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. With Forty-Two Illustrations by John Tenniel. New York: D. Appleton, 1866. First New York edition, from the sheets of the true first English (suppressed) edition of 1865 and preceding the 1866 (second)English edition; to wit: the second issue of the first edition-first printing, and the first obtainable edition. Small quarto. x, 192 pp. Publisher's red cloth with gilt vignettes within triple gilt borders on upper and lower boards. Spine decoratively lettered in gilt, dark blue coated end-papers, all edges gilt. A few very minor stains on half-title, verso of frontispiece and tissue guard. Some very small chips to spine extremities, small, one half inch area of wear (through the cloth) on rear joint, minimal rubbing to lower corners, some very minor staining to covers, still one of the best copies that we have seen - entirely untouched, the inner hinges absolutely sound. Chemised within a quarter red morocco clamshell case. This is one of the 1,952 sets of sheets of the original suppressed 1865 print run, that were sent to Appleton in New York for machine-folding and binding-up with a substituted New York title-page. The last example of the original 48 copies (see detailed note below) of the 1865 Alice to appear at auction was the Montagu-Rosenbach-Johnson-Kettaneh-Schiller copy. That copy was rebound in Morocco by Rivière for L.S. Montagu and had with it ten of the original drawings by John Tenniel. It fetched $1.4 million at Christie's New York in December 1998. It is extremely unusual to find a copy of this book that has never been touched, repaired or strengthened in some way. In over fifty years I cannot recall seeing more than a handful of 'untouched' copies - this is actually an 1865 Alice but with a New York title-page (DJB). "The first edition, familiarly known to book-collectors as 'the 1865 Alice', was printed at the Oxford University Press. This edition was at the last moment cancelled by the author, for whom Macmillan's were publishing 'on commission' (i.e. as agent, not sponsors) because of what was considered the poor printing of Sir John Tenniel's almost equally famous illustrations. The few early copies sent out were recalled; seemingly with fair success, since less than a score are known to survive today. The book was then reprinted, by Clay, with the title-page re-dated 1866, and this constitutes the first regularly published edition. Dodgson thriftily sold 500 copies of the suppressed 1865 printing for publication, with suitably altered title-page, by Appleton's of New York in 1866" (Printing and the Mind of Man). "On the suppression of the first (1865) edition, Messrs. Macmillan were left with a number of unbound sheets on their hands. These, one would have thought, would have been destroyed, but, from motives of economy perhaps, or may be because the defects in the illustrations were only apparent to the author, they were not destroyed…It is known that these sheets were sold to Messrs. Appleton of New York …[who] removed the Macmillan title page and substituted one with their own imprint, had the sheets bound in London, probably in the covers intended for the original edition, and then issued them in New York…the suppressed edition of 1865 and that issued by Appleton in New York in 1866 are identical" (Williams). "At first it was agreed to sell the condemned printing as waste-paper, but eventually there came an opportunity for the original unbound sheets to be sold off to an overseas publishing house who had requested to buy up two thousand copies for distribution in America. Both Tenniel and Dodgson gave their consent to this proposal, and thus 1,952 copies (of the original 2,000 copy print run) were sold to the firm David Appleton & Co.; the title pages were redone with a New York imprint dated 1866, the sheets were machine-folded and put into cloth bindings with Appleton's name on the lower spine and the new title page substituted on a stub for the earlier one; the fore-edges were then gilt and they were sent off to the unsuspecting colonies" (Schiller, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, [1990] p. 10-11). Of the forty-eight copies of the initial printing that were bound up before the suppression, only twenty-two are known to have survived. The two-leaf quire [b] occurs, like the title-page, in two settings printed in the same form and issued concurrently. The present copy has the article "a" in lowercase in the dedicatory poem on p. [ix], line 7, and the words "Rabbit-Hole" hyphenated in the contents list on p. [xi]. On the title-page, the the "B" in the first "By" appears above and slightly to the left of the the "C" in "Carroll," and the "B" in the second "By" directly above the "T" in Tenniel.

        Frülingsgesang [Song of Spring] for two Violins, Piano and Harmonium ad lib. [WoO]. [Score and parts]. Autograph working musical manuscript signed, dated April 3 1920 at conclusion

      - Folio. Unbound. Notated in ink on printed 12-stave music paper, ca. 300 x 250 mm. Autograph titling and inscription to recto of outer bifolium.Score: Title + 16 pp. Violin I: Title + 4 pp. Violinn II: Title + 5 pp. Harmonium: Title + 7 pp. With some corrections, additions, and cancellations within score. Overpaste amendations to lower half of one leaf within score, comprising a 3-measure passage for all instruments. Some corrections to harmonium part including notational overpaste replacing final page.Performance markings, fingerings, etc., in lead and blue pencil to parts. Inscribed to Dr. Otto Hollman (1866-1940) of Berlin by Bruch in 1920 on the occasion of Hollman's birthday.Slightly trimmed at upper and lower margins just affecting manuscript dynamics to several pages but with no loss of notation; lower edges of several leaves with burn marks; occasional minor dampstaining; occasional tears. In quite good condition overall. One of Bruch's last compositions, Frülingsgesang was written for the American journalist Arthur Abell, Berlin correspondent of The Musical Courier and a champion of Bruck's violin works in America. It is based on part of Bruch's oratorio "Gustav Adolf," op. 73 (1897-98). Fifield: Max Bruch His Life and Works, pp. 321 and 339. Not in the Grove or MGG works list."The E major violin duet was written in the early months of 1920, but was published posthumously in 1922 by Carl Fischer of New York under the spurious title of Song of Spring (the title was probably Abell's). The work was based on a passage in Gustav Adolf which was a particular favourite of the composer. The Song of Spring is. in ternary form, but the middle section of the later work is new material not to be found in Gustav Adolf. The piece is inconsequential, with a simplicity of harmony, somewhat crude modulation using the diminished sevenh to and from the middle section, and an accompaniment based on the left hand of the piano part of the vocal score of Gustav Adolf for the outer sections. An unimaginative middle section is dominated by parallel thirds mirrored in both hands. There are also attempts at orchestral tremolandi more suited to the piano score of the original vocal version. Interest in Song of Spring is centred entirely on its melodic invention. Bruch himself admitted to a lack of inspiration 'in my old age' in finding new material, when he wrote to Simrock's asking permission to quote from Gustav Adolf." op cit. p. 321."J.A. Fuller Maitland was an admirer of Bruch, and sought to compare him with Brahms to ascertain their relative positions in music. His conclusion (which he described in his Masters of German Music) was to place him midway between Brahms and other German contemporary composers. The best of Bruch's works were in Maitland's opinion: . distinguished by great and easily intelligible beauty, and by the rare quality of distinction. Both the music and the man belong to the Lower Rhine country. The broadly flowing melodies of his invention suggest the course of such a river as that of his native country. He is one of those who uphold most worthily the dignity of the art, and if he has not attained to the position of one whose every publication is received by musicians with a reverence due to a new revelation, he has won the hearts of many thousands of hearers by his beautiful creations in certain branches of music - viz., choral works of large design with orchestral accompaniment, and works for violin or viioloncello." Fifeld p. 327.One of the last German Romantic composers, "Max Bruch's precocious gifts remained largely unfulfilled for two reasons. He was an exact contemporary of Brahms and was forced to exist in the shadow of his greater colleague even beyond the latter's death over 20 years before his own, and the stubborn resistance he maintained to musical developments largely instigated by Wagner stifled any of his own originality. Nevertheless his name will endure, if only thanks to one superb violin concerto." Ch

        Later Lyrics - INSCRIBED COPY OF THE FIRST BOOK APPEARANCE OF "BATTLE HYMN OF THE REPUBLIC"

      Boston: J. E. Tilton & Company, 1866. First. Used; Like New/Used; Like New. 8vo (5.5 x 7.75), 326 pages, original gilt-stamped green cloth. Housed in a custom cloth chemise and half morocco slipcase. First edition, containing the first book appearance of "Battle Hymn of the Republic," with a tipped-in note by Julia Ward Howe: "For dear Mrs. Winkworth from the Author. Boston, Mass. April 4th 1873."<br>"I awoke in the grey of the morning, and as I lay waiting for dawn, the long lines of the desired poem began to entwine themselves in my mind, and I said to myself, 'I must get up and write these verses, lest I fall asleep and forget them!' So I sprang out of bed and in the dimness found an old stump of a pen, which I remembered using the day before. I scrawled the verses almost without looking at the paper." Perhaps best known for having written the "Battle Hymn of the Republic," Julia Ward Howe was also a devoted abolitionist and social reformer. "No movement or 'Cause' in which women were interestedâ?¦ could be launched without her. Her courage, her incisiveness and quickness of repartee, her constructive power, the completeness of her conviction accompanied by a balance of mind, and a sense of humor that disarmed irritation made her the greatest of woman organizers" (DAB). Her stirring poetic hymn was set to the tune of "John Brown's Body," which Howe had heard soldiers singing during her visit to a Union Army camp. She was taken with its strong marching beat and wrote her famous poem the following morning. The hymn "aroused President Lincoln 'like a trumpet blast,' and became his best loved marching song" (Owen, 143). The "Battle Hymn of the Republic" first appeared in Volume IX of The Atlantic Monthly in 1862; this is the first appearance in a book. The recipient of this copy was most likely Catherine Winkworth, an accomplished translator who helped to introduce the English-speaking public to German hymns and the German chorale tradition. Winkworth, who studied under the Unitarian minister Reverend William Gaskell and the English philosopher Dr. James Martineau, published several books on German hymnody. Winkworth and Howe were contemporaries working in a rather small field and, accordingly, their works are often published together in anthologies. Catherine Winkworth's sister, Susanna, a possible (but less likely) recipient, was also a translator, specializing in German devotional works.<br>Inner paper hinges expertly reinforced, slight wear and faint staining to cloth, mild toning to spine. An extremely good copy.

        GARDNER'S PHOTOGRAPHIC SKETCH BOOK OF THE WAR

      Washington: Philp & Solomons, 1866. Two volumes. [53]; [53]pp. of text. Mounted on guards throughout, tinted lithographic titles with lettering within integral pictorial borders. 100 original albumen silver print photographs (each approximately 7 x 9 inches), each mounted on card within a lithographed frame with letterpress caption, each image accompanied by a page of letterpress description. Oblong folio. Original publisher's black morocco, gilt, spines gilt, a.e.g. Expert repairs at joints. Very good. This work, the most famous collection of Civil War photographs, was published in an edition of no more than 200 sets. It includes many of the most celebrated and recognizable images of the war: "Burial Party, Cold Harbor," "A Harvest of Death," "Field Where General Reynolds Fell, Battle of Gettysburg," "President Lincoln on Battle-Field of Antietam," etc. The photographs are organized chronologically, beginning in 1862 and ending with the dedication of the monument at Bull Run to commemorate the Union soldiers who had died there. Unlike Brady, who was in the habit of placing his name on images made by his field operators, Gardner specifically credits each image to the particular photographer responsible, shedding light on the work of some of the most distinguished American photographers of the day. In addition to Gardner, the SKETCH BOOK... includes work by Timothy O'Sullivan, William Pywell, D.B. Woodbury, David Knox, Barnard & Gibson, J. Reekie, and others. These images form perhaps the most important pictorial record of the Civil War, spanning the length of the conflict, from the aftermath of action at Centerville and Manassas in 1862, to the dedication of the monument at Bull Run in June 1865. This work "is one of the most important sources of information that we have on the subject, as from it we learn the names of many men who actually made the photographs of the Civil War, and were employed by Brady and Gardner" (Taft). "The photographs show the terrain of the battles (Bull Run, Manassas, Harper's Ferry, Gettysburg, etc.), encampments, headquarters of the troops, officers and enlisted men, soldiers in drill formation and in the field under fire, and the ruins left after the battles. Limitations in the process of photography did not permit work during the battles; the photographs are remarkable documents of the circumstantial evidence for war. Recent investigations suggest that not every site was recorded just as found by the photographer but that a certain amount of rearranging, including actually moving the corpses, was undertaken in some situations. The captions, conceived in poetic rather than terse journalistic terms, suggest that the authors saw their work as having the human significance we see in many of the photographs of today" - Goldschmidt & Naef. Gardner's work was published by the Washington, D.C. firm of Philp & Solomons, and carried the rather hefty price of $150. The one hundred photographs that were included were selected from a collection of over 3,000 negatives, and the lithographic titlepages were designed by Alfred R. Waud (though designated A.R. Ward on the titlepages), one of the most important illustrators of the day. The publishers issued two slightly separate versions of the book, one in 1865, and the other in 1866. This copy is from the 1866 issue, with the caption "Incidents of the War" removed from each mount. HOWES G64. SABIN 26635. GOLDSCHMIDT & NAEF, TRUTHFUL LENS 68. NEVINS II, p.14. Julie L.

        Histoire du Canada et voyages que les Frères mineurs récollects y ont faicts pour la conversion des infidèles depuis l'an 1615. ( 4 volumes )

      Paris: Librairie Tross, 1866 Source inestimable sur la Nouvelle-France des origines; à lire parallèlement avec Champlain et les Relations des Jésuites. Musique de chansons huronnes. Dictionnaire huron. L'histoire du Canada de Sagard reprend dans sa deuxième partie le Grand Voyage au Pays des Hurons "réécrit avec beaucoup de variantes et deux fois plus de pages" que la première version. Selon M. Warwick, auteur de la notice dans le DOLQ, "si la valeur principale des écrits de Sagard se situent dans le domaine de l'ethnographie, et ensuite de l'histoire de la Nouvelle-France, la valeur littéraire occupe une troisième place honorable et d'ailleurs indispensable à la compréhension exacte de sa valeur documentaire Sagard révèle en profondeur le contact d'une conscience européenne avec le sol américain". Quart de reliure cuir, plats marbrés, quatre faux nerfs et dorure au dos. Dominoterie et ex-libris en pages de garde. Cuir vert décoloré au dos. Sinon très bel état.
