Memphis, TN: Printed by Saunders, Jones & Co, 1868. Beautiful, elaborate trade card, 8 1/4 x 10 1/2 inches, printed in red, green, and gilt, the text enclosed within a triple-rule red and green border, with green corner ornaments and a large central green ornament at the top edge; imprint below bottom border in green. Nathan Bedford Forrest, one of the Confederacy's most successful cavalry commanders, fronted for this insurance company from its founding in May, 1867, until it was adjudged bankrupt in March, 1868; the address given on the card was the company's second, quarters to which it moved in late 1867. Forrest, a successful merchant and slave trader before the Civil War, struggled in the early years after the conflict before finding success as a railroad promoter and large scale farmer. Not in Allen "Tennessee Imprints." Not recorded on OCLC. Lower corner creased, some soiling, but a nice example of a lovely southern chromolithographic trade card for a business run by one of the Confederacy's greatest heroes. (1360).

CURRIER & IVES (publishers) - After Francis F. PALMER
New York: Currier & Ives, 1868. Hand-coloured lithograph by James Merrit Ives after Fanny Palmer. 21 1/4 x 30 1/2 inches. A poignant image, demonstrating the triumph of the human spirit. In the foreground, uprooted trees bob in the current, using a roof as a raft two men pole themselves and nine others to safety, one of their companions holds tight to reins of a mule swimming beside the roof, whilst two others rescue furniture and a barrel. In the mid-ground: a large white-painted house with second-floor balconies front and back, and a smaller cook-house off to the right side. Two men in a row boat approach the back of the house, a lady stands on the balcony speaking to the men; on the widow's walk on the roof a man and a woman stand: the man waves a handkerchief to the twin-stack riverboat. The riverboat, "Stonewall Jackson" is travelling at speed: the near-side paddle creates a substantial wake, the flags fly in the stiff breeze and the smoke from the stacks steams backwards: passengers line the rails attracted by the human drama they are passing. The overall impression is of a crisis that is being survived and dealt with by man's ingenuity, whilst life continues. Conningham 2819; Gale 3057

Illustrated Book)
London & Edinburgh: T. Nelson and Sons, 1868. (76) pages; title page printed in red; illustrated throughout in colors, with each page printed one side only-evidently this process of colour printing caused some bleed-through to the other side and the publisher avoided having to deal with this by using only one side of the sheet; with humorous verses accompanying each story, mostly about cats and one about a fox, who are often anthropomorphized with human-like expressions as in the later Louis Wain work; the illustrations not credited and neither are the verses; a kind correspondent informs us that they are the work of Comus, the pseudonym of R.M. Ballantyne; occasionally, the illustrations are fairly brutal and straightforward, with the fox and his family chewing up stolen booty-a fat goose and duck, which they bloodily dismember and eat in their den and the cat mother whipping her child (with a cat-o'-nine-tails of course) for stealing cream; each story with its own half-title page; an OCLC search at the time of cataloguing indicates 2 institutionally held copies only; book 7 1/2" x 11" approx. size; bound in the original publisher's gilt-decorated and blindstamped salmon colored pebbled finish cloth; some edge, tips wear-through, soiling to binding; spine cloth very dulled; some soiling, occasional closed tear to contents; binding loosened; illustrations bright and in very good condition, an interesting survival and evidence of an intriguing colour printing process being tried at the time. .

Scott, John F. [editor]
Dick & Firzgerald, Publishers, New York, 1868. Edition Unstated. Hardcover. Good/None Issued. Size: 16mo. In this rare book we see what may be the first appearance of Mark Twain's short speech "A Speech on Women," which is on pages 101 & 102. This is a speech Twain gave in December 1867 at the Correspondents' Club in Washington, D.C.: "At a dinner given by the Correspondents' Club at Washington, the celebrated humorist, Mark Twain, was called upon to respond to a toast complimentary to women, and he performed his duty in the following manner:" (there follows the speech with the audience's reaction included in parentheses after each line which elicited laughter, applause, etc.). It is a very funny speech. The complete title is: "Brudder Bones' Book of Stump Speeches, and Burlesque Orations, Also Containing Humorous Lectures, Ethiopian Dialogue, Plantation Scenes, Negro Farces and Burlesques, Laughable Interludes, and Comic Recitations. Interspersed with Dutch, Irish, French and Yankee Stories." Copyright page has a date of 1868; color illustrated paper over boards, 184 pages plus 24 pages at the end of the book of advertisements for other books, 6 5/8" x 4¼". Much of the text is "Negro humor" which we would find politically incorrect today, as we do the stereotypical depiction of a black man on the front cover. Boards are chipped, bumped and scratched, soiled, front & rear free end papers are missing and title page is separated at the top staple, last page torn a little at the staples; some pages have spot or soil or small crease, but overall, interior is clean, no writing, … [Click Below for Full Description]
