        Group of photographs and ephemera relating to automotive pioneer George Baldwin Selden

      c. 1870-1920 - This collection includes (1) a family photo album depicting Selden circa 1885; (2) a carte-de-visite of Selden circa 1871; (3) three handsome mounted albumen photographs circa 1910, presumably depicting Selden cars; (4) a later photograph of a Selden motor truck; (5) a photostat copy of a legal illustration, "Comparative Scale Drawings of Selden Vehicle"; and (6) a 1920 company pamphlet titled "Yesterday Today Tomorrow." The photo album (1), contains 18 cartes-de-visite, showing men, women, and children, identified by name (in a contemporary hand, in ink); family names include Woodruff, Tomlinson, Sayre, Drake, Rogers and -- of course -- Seldon. The single carte-de-visite of Seldon (2), was taken by O. F. Weaver of Chicago; a handwritten notation on the verso indicates that it was taken in 1871 as the fire of October 8, 1870, "closed his business venture barrel hoop machinery." The mounted albumen photos (3) range in size from 5.75x7.5 to about 7.5x9.5 inches, in excellent condition, on heavy dark grey mounts with wide margins; showing a couple or a group of gents in Selden cars; it is charminging to see onlookers peering from the windows of the building in the background. A single photograph, c. 1915, 6.5x4 inches, shows a Selden motor truck (4), loaded with Brass Goods from Henry Wray and Sons. Photostat copy (5) of a legal illustration (18.5x7.5 inches, with flattened creases from folding, and a little smudging), shows comparative scale drawings of Selden Vehicle, with 2 H. P. Engine of Selden, and of Brayton, Otto, Otto-Langen, and Lenoir; showing single- and 3-cylinder engines, and listing the weight, speed, and horsepower of the engine. The company pamphlet (6) offers of 4 different Selden trucks, plus text. George Baldwin Selden (1846-1922) invented an early lightweight combustion engine intended for use in a four-wheeled vehicle, and applied for a patent in 1879. This gives him some claim to be the inventor of the automobile. The patent went through years of legal challenges before being granted in 1895, and then faced further decades of lawsuits from Henry Ford and others, eventually suffering defeat in 1911. In the meantime, he launched the Selden Motor Vehicle Company in 1905, moving into truck manufacture after his patent defeat. (Selden trucks are shown in the aformentioned pamphlet, "Yesterday Today Tomorrow.") [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Leggi e Memorie Venete Sulla Prostituzione fino alla caduta della republica. A spese del conte di Orford

      Venice: Tipografia del commercio di Marco Visentini, 1870. Sole edition, copy 149 of 150. Four mounted photographic plates after Veronese, two lithographed plates. [iv], viii, 399, [blank] pp. Folio. Original olive morocco, spine and upper cover gilt with the lion of St Mark as centrepiece. Sole edition, copy 149 of 150. Four mounted photographic plates after Veronese, two lithographed plates. [iv], viii, 399, [blank] pp. Folio. Streetwalkers in Venice. The role of prostitution in Venetian society was such that in 1358, the Grand Council of Venice declared it "absolutely indispensable to the world" (Richards, 125). This remarkable publication is a history of prostitution in Venice from the Renaissance to the fall of the Venetian republic in 1797. Although the author is identified as Horatio Walpole, it was in fact compiled for him by Giovanni Battista Lorenzi of the Biblioteca Marciana. Drawing on the earlier scholarship of Maier and Daru, and inspired by the interest of Byron and others, Lorenzi collects a wealth of information relating to Venetian prostitutes and courtesans. Beginning with a list of the most famous sixteenth century courtesans (as found in a contemporary printed guide), the work includes a compilation of the laws relating to prostitution enacted in the Republic from the year 1232 onwards, augmented with explanatory notes where needed. For example, prostitutes were especially forbidden from wearing masks in gondolas. From these, and from court judgments that accompany them, we get a detailed picture both of the activities of courtesans and their clients, and of the ways in which these activities were regulated, tolerated (or not), and dealt with by the legal authorities over the course of several centuries. We also find trial reports and transcripts, and details of the sentences passed on various prostitutes (including Sicile Polacea, "meretrice Ebrea e ruffiana", from the Ghetto), and clients (including Fra Innocente Gritti of the Convent of S. Stefano, "pei suoi dissoluti costumi"). Included with this copy is a handwritten list, possibly in Walpole's hand, of the people and institutions in England to whom copies were to be sent. It certainly made it to the British Museum, other intended recipients included Disraeli, the Lord Chief Justice, Ferdinand de Rothschild and the Prince of Wales. Richards, Jeffrey.

        RODE KRUIS, VAN DE POLL, FRANS-DUITSE OORLOG--- Vertelsels van Peet aan haar lieve Clara. Cahier met 61 pag., tekst in handschrift met een verslag van een verblijf van zes weken van de auteur, C.C. van de Poll, als Rode Kruis-zuster op de Lunenburger Heide tijdens de oorlog van 1870. In het cahier twee foto's uit 1870 van de Rode Kruis tenten op de Lunenburger Heide en een aantal schetstekeningetjes (o.a. van soldatenleven, ziekenzaal, en het huis Beukenburg).

      Zij vertrok 2-9-1870 vanuit Utrecht, uitgeleide gedaan o.a. door de gouverneur van Gerrit van Doorn (Poekie). Er werd een tentenkamp betrokken op de heide bij Mannheim. De gevechten hadden plaats gevonden te Sulz. De gewonde soldaten werden verzorgd o.l.v. dokter Schubart en dokter Brondgeest. Bezoek van hertogin Louize. Behalve zuster Van de Poll ook zusters Bosch en Karsten, de ziekenverplegers Bouman en Van der Velde, en tentenbouwers Beth en Swanink. Contact met freule Van der Hoeven die in Mannheim woont. Bezoek aan verwoest Straatsburg. Rijtoer te Courielles met de Johanniter ridder baron Crak. Bezoek aan prins en prinses Hendrik te Lunenburg. Na terugkomst invitatie van de prins en prinses om in paleis Soestdijk te komen (daar gebracht door neefjes en nichtjes Van de Poll uit Amersfoort). Zij woonde toen op Klein Rusthoek, in de buurt van Utrecht. De auteur, Peet of jkvr. Clara Catherina van de Poll (1855-1943) was dochter van jhr. F.H. van de Poll (1823-1909), directeur van een verzekeringsmaatschappij te Zeist (NAB 1949 pag. 482). Zij was in 1870 dan slechts 15 jaar oud (het verslag werd overigens geschreven tussen 1871 en 1876). Haar pupil Clara moet Clara C.M. Twiss (1867-1927) zijn. Dit was de dochter van de burgemeester van Maartensdijk Willem Twiss die op Beukenburg aldaar woonde. 'Peet' refereert eind september 1870 in haar verslag aan de verjaardag van Clara's moeder. Deze was inderdaad op 30 september jarig (NP 33 pag. 281).

        4 autograph letters signed ("'Gius." or "Giuseppe Mazzini").

      N. p., 1870 and undated. - Small 8vo. Altogether 7 pp. on 4 double leaves. One letter to his sister (15. II. 1870), one to Sig. Nova, one to Stefano, and one to an unnamed "amici". - Accompanied by a lithographic portrait; mostly written on very thin paper with small damages to edges and traces of mounting. - Letter to the "amici" / friends from the end of the first page to the end of the letter: "Come dissi fin da quando ci vedevamo la / prima volta, non posso negare che mi sorge / spesso dentro il pensiero: 'Se vediamo che / il sorgere di Piac. presenti l'opportunità alle / città d'Italia, perché non lo potrà il sorgere di / Genova?' Non posso a meno di ripetere / questo pensiero; ma più in là non vedo. L'amico vi dirà dell'Ufficiale che lo / veduto questa mattina. Appena io abbia notizie, le avviso. Se per / caso credete di determinarvi a fare, avvertite-/mi senza indugio. Darò allora i proclami e vi / vedrò subito. Il Governo ha evidentemente paura. E non / osa appigliarsi a misure anteriormente repres-/sive. V' è agitazione, come sapete, anche nel / macinato. Il Governo nondimeno presente il moto da / parte nostra. E questo potrebbe forse modificare / il disegno e dare più importanza alla mia / idea d'assalire le ali, procacciare armi e / portar poi le forze concentrate ed eccitate da / una vittoria sul centro. Ma di questo si / parlerebbe. Vostro tutto Gius M". - "As I have said since we have met for / the first time, I cannot deny that the thought / occurs to me often: ' If we see that / the rising of Piac. shows the opportunity for / the cities of Italy, why could the rising of / Genova not do the same thing?' I cannot stop to repeat / this thought; but I do not see any more in it. The friend will let you know from the Officer that I saw him / this morning. As soon as I have news, I will let you know. In / case you believe you will make up your mind to act, let me know / without delay. I will then give a proclamation and I will / see you immediately. Obviously, the Government is afraid. And it does not / dare to cling to measures which were repres-/sive before. There is agitation, as you know, even in / the crushed. Still, the Government presents the stimulus for / us. And this could maybe change / the plan and give more importance to my / idea of attacking the wings, procuring weapons and / then leading the concentrated and excited forces to / a victory over the centre. But we will talk / about this. Yours entirely Gius M".

Je ne vois pas que j'aie commis une injustice en redigeant le chapitre sur l'isle de Java [ ] C'est dans l'intérêt de l'isle et de habitants mêmes que je proposerai de discuter le system Van den Bosch et la pratique coloniale des Hollandais.

        Eigenh. Manuskript "Ein Weltbund des Deutschtums".

      O. O. u. D. - 16 SS. 8vo. Der in schlichten Verhältnissen aufgewachsene Schriftsteller, der auch unter den Pseudonymen Ignotus, Franz Josef Gerhold und Vetter Michel schrieb, war 1870 als Friseurgehilfe nach Wien gekommen, wo er sich rasch im Selbststudium weiterbildete, bald schriftstellernd hervortat und als Mitglied der Wiener literarisch-künstlerischen Gesellschaft sowie Feuilletonredakteur der "Deutschen Zeitung" (seit 1886) für eine nationale Erneuerung des Wiener Theaterlebens eintrat. "In seinen Streitschriften forderte Müller-Guttenbrunn u. a. die Einrichtung einer Volksbühne (Wien war eine Theaterstadt, 1885) und die Gründung eines deutsch-national ausgerichteten Volksbildungsvereins. 1893-96 leitete er das Raimund-Theater und übernahm 1898 das Kaiser-Jubiläums-Stadttheater, wo er seine nationalen Ziele mit Hilfe 'deutschgesinnter' Spielpläne und billigen 'Volksvorstellungen' zu realisieren suchte" (DBE). Nachdem er 1903 die Direktion abgegeben und sich wieder verstärkt seinen literarischen Ambitionen angenommen hatte, bemühte sich der "hervorragende Heimaterzähler mit Vorliebe für kulturgeschichtliche Stoffe" (Kosch II, 1806) "um die Stärkung des National- und Selbstbewußtseins der Banater Schwaben. Als Abgeordneter des österr. Nationalrats trat er seit 1919 auch auf politischer Ebene für seine großdeutschen Ziele ein" (DBE).

        To The Independent Electors of the Borough of Newark

      Weaver, 25 March, Saracen's Head, Newark 1870 - Printed broadside, 505 x 380 mm, small tear bottom left corner repaired. A most unusual survival: a political broadside from the later career of Sir George Grey, seeking to capitalise on his Colonial experience.Although fresh from his ignominious recall from South Africa, Grey here announces his principles to the voters of Newark (Nottinghamshire), noting that 'as one to whom Her Majesty has repeatedly confided the important task of great dependencies, I take a deep interest in Imperial questions. I am opposed to the views of those who would advocate the severance of the Colonies from Great Britain, believing that they add to her strength, wealth, and glory? I have striven to initiate a policy of Emigration, by which? our Colonies would be regarded as the natural outlet for our excessive population?'.Grey, an explorer and politician, made his first Australian exploration in 1838 (having cadged a lift on HMS Beagle), and went on to have a long and important career in the colonies. He was the Governor of South Australia from 1841-45, of New Zealand from 1845-53, and of the the Cape Colony from 1854-68. The present document dates from his abortive attempt to force his way into the British Parliament in 1870 as a Gladstonian Liberal who, rather perversely, was not supported by Gladstone himself (the British Prime Minister came out in full-throated support for his opponent Sir Henry Storks). The failure of Grey's bid decided him to return to New Zealand the same year.

        HISTORY OF DON QUIXOTE. The Text Edited by J. W. Clark and A Biographical Notice of Cervantes, by T. Teignmouth Shore

      London Cassell, Petter, and Galpin [c. 1870] - A very early issue of this wonderfully illustrated Cervantes. With 118 spectacular illustrations by by Gustave Doré. Royal 4to (12 x 9 inches approx.), in a very fine, English binding of deluxe dark green morocco, the covers ornately framed in gilt featuring thick beautifully roll-tooled band-, frame- and panel-work surrounded by multi-ruled gilt lines with small rosette corners gilt, inner ruled in blind and gilt, the spine very richly gilt decorated in compartments between wide gilt-ruled raised bands, the compartments feature fine and elaborate gilt panel work incorporated multiple tools, one compartment lettered in gilt, board edges gilt tooled, fine marbled endpapers and a.e.g. xxviii, 737 pp. A very handsome and sturdy copy, internally fresh with only a bit of very occasional minor spotting, much less then typically found, the binding is very strong and well preserved, beautiful and of fine craftsmanship. AN UNUSUALLY HANDSOME COPY. VERY SCARCE IN SUCH WELL PRESERVED CONDITION. Gustave Doré was one of the greatest illustrators of his day. His grand and magnificent style is a perfect complement for Cervantes heroic tale. This massive tome is one of our favorite printings of the Spanish classic and, because of the weight of the text block, is usually found broken and loose. This copy is as sturdy as one could hope for and is very handsome despite some wear to the binding. A great compliment to any fine library and a must for the collector of 19th century illustrated books. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        [Promotional Photo Album]: Rawley Springs, Va

      [Harrisonburg, Va.?. circa 1870]. Small quarto. Half-leather and cloth with black morocco label on front board with decorations and "Rawley Springs, Va." in gilt. Printed description of Rawley Springs tipped onto front pastedown. Glazed salmon-colored thick card leaves with printed decorative border and "Rawley, Va." printed on each leaf, and with 30 albumen photographs of the various attractions of the resort tipped-in, beneath all but a few is a printed, tipped-in caption (the others have handwritten captions). The images are approximately 5.5" x 4". A few early ownership signatures, the earliest in 1875, including that of J.S. Strayer of Harrisonburg, joints reveal older but fairly slight and effective repair at the extremities, boards a bit bowed, a little smudging on a few of the leaves, but else near fine, and the images are rich and bright. The album depicts Major Zack, the Manager of the Springs; hotels, including The Virginia House, The Baltimore House, and The Washington House; the "Old Laundry"; black waiters posing in a dining room; another of black servant, "Uncle Sim Lightfoot"; a group of distinguished looking gentleman in front of a gazebo labeled "Fat Men of Rawley"; other groups of tourists outdoors at The Gent's Bowling Alley and Billiard Rooms; men fishing; various natural wonders; and other views that seem to indicate that Rawley Springs would be a very nice place to visit. Rawley Springs was (and is) nine miles west of Harrisonburg, near the border with West Virginia. It became a resort starting in 1810 for those looking to enjoy the medicinal waters. The town suffered a serious setback when both The Virginia House and The Washington House burned in 1886. They were rebuilt and burned again in 1915. Unrecorded. OCLC locates no copies, but does locate a small promotional pamphlet for the Springs printed about the same time (one copy each of four successive editions: 1873, 1874, 1875, and 1876). An esthetically pleasing, thoroughly fascinating, and unrecorded promotional album. .

        Pastoral del Excelentísimo Señor Arzobispo de Westminster sobre la Infalibilidad del Papa. Traducida del inglés y aumentada con un prólogo y un apéndice por el Ilustrísimo Señor Obispo de Antinoë, Vicario Apostólico de Gibraltar [Doctor Juan Bautista Scandella]

      Turin, Imprenta de Pedro de Jacinto Marietti, 1870. 4to.; XVII pp., 108 pp., 1 h. Enc. moderna en media tela. El Doctor Scandella, nacido en Gibraltar, era miembro de una ilustre y antigua familia gibraltareña de orígen genovés. Estudió en Londres y en Roma y ejerció primeramente como Vicario en Corfu con el Ejército Británico volviendo a su tierra natal tras diez años esta vez al servicio del Obispo Hughes y siendo posteriormente consagrado Obispo de Antinoë en Londres en 1857 por el propio Cardenal Wiseman. Su prelatura gibraltareña está llena de hechos notables, como son su decision de hacer retornar pacíficamente a Gibraltar en 1864 la imágen original de Nuestra Señora de Europa que se hallaba en Algeciras desde 1704 junto a la construcción de su Capilla en Saint Bernard's Road y su entronización en 1866. Es notable igualmente su decidida apuesta por la educación y a él se deben las Escuelas de Rosia Parade, Catalan Bay, Lime Kiln Road y las de la Cripta de la Iglesia de Saint Joseph. Tomó tambien parte destacada en los trabajos del Concilio Vaticano en el Comité «De Fide», al que sería referida en marzo de 1870 la cuestión de la infalibilidad del Papa.

        South Australia. Standing Rules and Orders for regulating the public business of the House of Assembly. [and three other works]

      W.C. Cox, Adelaide 1870 - Four works bound together, duodecimo, owner's signatures on front end paper; fine, in a handsome crimson roan presentation binding, lettered in gilt to front and spine. A charming and quite remarkable little volume, with four apparently unrecorded works relating to the establishment and running of South Australia's first representative parliament. Particularly notable is the fact that the first two more substantial publications print the rules and orders for public business and private bills in the House of Assembly, and must have been of invaluable assistance to the volume's original owner, Sir George Strickland Kingston, who, a manuscript note explains, was the first Speaker.Sir George Strickland Kingston (1807-1880) had promoted South Australian colonisation in 1834, and was appointed deputy surveyor general to the new colony two years later. Although he wore many hats in the colony during his long career, he was first elected to the Legislative Council in 1851, where he cemented his reputation as a 'republican and a fiery supporter of civil and religious liberty' (ADB). In the first parliament under responsible government in 1857, he was elected South Australia's first Speaker in the House of Assembly.The volume includes the rule and orders for "regulating the public business" in the lower house (xviii, 116 pp.); the rules and orders relating to Private Bills (v, 23 pp.); an 1856 "Act to establish a Constitution for South Australia" (drop-title, 18 pp.); and an 1858 "Act to confer certain Powers and Privileges on the Houses of Parliament of South Australia" (drop-title, 7 pp.). All four works were printed by the Government Printer Cox.A similar work was prepared for the Legislative Council in 1878 by the printer Spiller, but all of these earlier House of Assembly-related work appears to be unrecorded.

        A SALESMAN'S PROSPECTUS FOR "THE INNOCENTS ABROAD, OR, THE NEW PILGRIM'S PROGRESS."

      American Publishing Company, Hartford 1870 - A Salesman's Dummy Apparently Recording the Purchase ofTwain's Early Travel Account by a Prominent Illinois Jurist. 226 x 149 mm mm (9 x 5 3/4"). [80] pp. of sample text (irregularly paginated), [16] leaves of subscription forms (mostly blank). Publisher's black cloth, upper cover with gilt vignette title, lower cover with American Publishing Company device in blind, sample cloth and sheepskin binding options affixed to pastedowns. Housed in a fine later black niger morocco clamshell box With 33 illustrations, comprised of 16 engraved plates with tissue guards, 17 text engravings. Foldout advertisement (with five-inch closed tear) for the publisher's "Family Bible" bound in at rear. Spine head and tail with minor chips, corners somewhat worn, a dozen small blisters in the cloth covering the upper board, but still A SURPRISINGLY WELL-PRESERVED COPY of a category of book almost always encountered in various states of wreckage, this copy entirely clean, completely solid, and with few signs of use in general. Providing a pre-publication sample of content and binding versions for Twain's classic steamship voyage to Europe and the Middle East, this is a salesman's prospectus that time has treated with unusual kindness. The author's first commercial success, the book (in its full-blooded form) is replete with insightful and humorous commentary. As was the custom with many books issued by The American Publishing Company, this copy was sold, not through bookstores, but rather by subscription, using a national network of sales representatives. From town to town they tramped, from city to city they canvassed, door-to-door salesmen who carried with them abridged samples--like the present item--of the books they had for sale. This example contains specimen text, illustrations, binding options and prices, testimonials, reviews, advertisements, and subscription forms. Our anonymous salesman apparently had a brief career, with only two orders entered on the bound-in subscription form: M. Ballou of Princeton, Illinois, ordered a copy in Library Leather with Sprinkled Edge for $4, and C. L. Smith of Princeton ordered one in fine cloth with gilt edge for the same price. Since Princeton, Illinois, is not a large town, and since Ballou is not a terribly common name, it is certainly possible that the first person to succumb to the temptation of the present salesman's dummy was Martin Ballou, the prominent jurist of that name who was born in Halifax, Vermont, in 1812. Ballou attended Harvard, was admitted to the bar in his home state in 1839, and then moved to Princeton, where he was elected Judge of the Circuit Court in 1857, became one of the most well-respected members of his profession in the region, and lived to the end of the century. With the present special object, our salesman's failure turns out to be our own success, for it allowed this dummy (the book, not the salesman) to retire gracefully prior to decrepitude.

Voyage pittoresque à travers l'Isthme de Suez, vingt-cinq grandes aquarelles d'après nature par Riou. Paris, Paul Dupont & E. Lachaud, [1870]. 76 (instead of 100) pp. With coloured map and 20 (of 25) chromolithographic plates. Contemporary red half morocco, giltstamped covers (arms of Ismail Pasha) and giltstamped title to spine. First edition. A chronicle of the elaborate festivities given for the inauguration of the Suez Canal (Qanat al-Suwais), opened in November 1869 after ten years of construction work - an event attended by the most prestigious occidental figures, finely illustrated by Riou, the Khedive's official painter. In 1854/56 Ferdinand de Lesseps obtained a concession from Sa'id Pasha, the Khedive of Egypt and Sudan, to create a company to construct a canal open to ships of all nations, which would allow ship transport between Europe and eastern Asia without navigation around Africa. Lesseps had used his friendly relationship with Sa'id, which he had developed while he was a French diplomat during the 1830s. In 1863, Sa'id was succeeded by his nephew Ismail, known as The Magnificent, who now oversaw the Egyptian portion of the Canal's construction. On his accession, he refused to ratify the concessions to the Canal company made by Said, insisting on numerous changes upon in the original grant. Ismail then used every available means, by his own powers of fascination and by judicious expenditure, to bring his personality before the foreign sovereigns and public. In 1867 he visited Paris and London, where he was received by Queen Victoria and welcomed by the Lord Mayor. While in Britain he also saw a British Royal Navy Fleet Review with the Ottoman Sultan. In 1869 he again paid a visit to Britain. When the Canal finally opened, Ismail held a festival of unprecedented scope, inviting dignitaries from around the world. Ismail himself performed the grand opening, together with French Empress Eugenie in the Imperial yacht "Aigle", piloted by Napoléon Coste who was bestowed by the Khedive the Order of the Medjidie. - The painter Riou also signed the plates of the second part: a detailed account of the canal construction by Marius Fontane, secretary to Lesseps. 500 copies of Fontane's work were printed, with 200 reserved for the Khedive Ismail, of which this is one. As the Khedive objected to the preface of Fontane's work, which gave credit for the canal to Lesseps, he had removed Lesseps' portrait frontispiece, the preface, and the final six gatherings (which included plates 21-25). - Occasional foxing to plates, otherwise an excellent copy.

OCLC locates no copies, but does locate a small promotional pamphlet for the Springs printed about the same time (one copy each of four successive editions: 1873, 1874, 1875, and 1876). An esthetically pleasing, thoroughly fascinating, and unrecorded promotional album. .

        Autograph Letter, Signed, from President Grant to General William Tecumseh Sherman, Inviting Sherman to a Reception with a Delegation of Leading Chiefs of the Sioux Tribe]. Washington, D.C. June 6, 1870

      - [4]pp. Mailing folds, minor edge toning. President Grant Invites General Sherman to a reception for Sioux Chiefs A congenial letter from President Grant to Gen. William Tecumseh Sherman, inviting Sherman and his wife to join him at the White House that evening for a reception with the "delegation of the Indians now in Washington? The Cabinet and their ladies and most of the Diplomatic Corps with their ladies are to be present also. There has been no invitation sent to any one but those coming expressed a desire to be present. Yours truly U.S. Grant." Sherman has noted on the verso of the third page, "Absent at time of its receipt." In June 1870, President Grant hosted the Sioux tribal chiefs Red Cloud, Spotted Tail, and Swift Bear in Washington, one of many such meetings between Grant and Native American leadership, but one of particular importance. The three chiefs were the leaders of several sub-divisions of the Sioux nation, and those most inclined to seek a peaceful settlement with the encroaching United States. This meeting garnered a front-page illustration in the June 18, 1870 issue of Harper's Weekly , showing Grant shaking hands as he greets the three leaders. Grant's "Indian Peace Policy" met with limited success, and though the policy certainly embodied the cultural values of the era, in hindsight seems misguided. Tribes either agreed to go on reservations (as these three Sioux leaders did), or were pressed to do so. Sherman, serving as the Commanding General of the U.S. Army from 1869 to 1883, oversaw the enforcing of this policy. He pursued this with the vigor and ruthlessness he had applied to Georgia in the Civil War, developed a rather virulent hatred of those Sioux Indians who did not go onto reservations, remarking after Custer's defeat at Little Bighorn that "hostile savages like Sitting Bull and his band of outlaw Sioux.must feel the superior power of the Government." An interesting presidential letter at a key point in United States policy towards Native Americans.
