        Ten Great Religions book from the library of President James Garfield, inscribed to him from ?King of the Lobby?, Sam Ward, one of the most powerful and influential lobbyists of the Gilded Age

      "The first Presidential memorial library, completed at the Lawnfield estate in Ohio by the widow of James Garfield four years after his assassination, houses almost 3,000 books that were used and treasured by the 20th president. Books were a scarce commodity to young James, who lost his father before the age of two, and was raised by his mother who struggled to maintain a humble existence. Both James Garfield and his wife Lucretia were voracious readers and amassed a large collection of books. Some twenty years ago, several dozen of his books were de-accessioned, and one of these books is described below:Book: Ten Great Religions: An Essay in Comparative Theology. Boston: James R. Osgood and Company, 1871, 8vo, 528 pps. James A. Garfield bookplate affixed to front end paper, over another bookplate of similar size. Inscribed to James Garfield on the front flyleaf by Sam Ward, ?This charming résumé which I have read with pleasure & profit is now appropriately bestowed upon my dear friend Garfield whose enlightened & inquiring spirit will appreciate the great fairness & intelligence of this Freeman Clarke whom I have heard preach to my great delight. / Sam Ward / Feb 1872?. Pencil notation in most likely Ward?s hand on back flyleaf, ?p 14-19- [21 to 81] a most beautiful and comprehensive summary.? Page block split mid-way at binding which can be repaired. Chips and wear to spine and corners. Pencil lines on a few pages. Good condition.Sam Ward, sometimes referred to as ?King of the Lobby? or ?Uncle Sam Ward?, was the sister of Juliet Ward Howe, the son-in-law of William B. Astor, a prominent banker, and one of the Gilded Age?s most influential lobbyists. Publishers Weekly, in its review of Kathryn Allamong Jacob?s biography of Ward, writes, ? Ward earned the title ?King of the Lobby? by applying savoir faire, gastronomy and a genius for social combinations to the hitherto crude process of influencing votes in Congress. He represented insurance, telegraph and steamship companies as well as banking, mining and railroad interests, among others.? Ward jokingly referred to himself as Rex Vestiari. He cultivated a style of lobbying that survives today in the form of expensive golf outings, extravagant dinners, and luxurious vacations. His friends included James Garfield, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Charles Sumner, Lord Rosebery, Thackeray, and William Seward."

        Hermione. Sorgspel. Af författaren till "I Rom" och "Den fredlöse". Stockholm, I. Marcus, 1871. 95,(1) pp.

      1871 - Red half cloth, somewhat worn and soiled. Front wrapper preserved, stains on wrapper and title, faint stains on p. 55. Bookplate and bookstamp. Dedication to August Dörum from the author.Zetterlund I:3. One of the copies without the name of the author on front wrapper. In January 1870 Strindberg sent a script with the title "Det sjunkande Hellas" [Hellas sinking] to the Royal Dramatic Theatre in Stockholm. This play was refused by the theatre and sent back to the author, who made significant alterations to the work and published it through Albert Bonnier in Stockholm. Despite the changes, the play was never performed. The main character of the tragedy, Hermione, is given the task of murdering Philip II, whose armies are threathening Athens, but instead she falls in love with him, fails with her assignment and causes the destruction of the Athenian army. August Dörum (1841-1880) was an actor at the Royal Dramatic Theatre. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Biography of Victoria C. Woodhull

      New York: Published at the Office of The Golden Age. 1871. First. First edition. 12mo. 35,(1)pp. Stitched gray printed wrappers. Soiling to the wrappers and tiny chips to the corners of the wrapper and first two leaves, very good or better. Woodhull was a leader of the American women's suffrage movement, and an espouser of women's rights, free love, and labor reforms. She and her sister were the first female Wall Street stockbrokers, and she was the first female candidate for President of the United States. Woodhull came to Tilton's aid in 1872 when she published in her own magazine, Woodhull & Claflin's Weekly, the scandalous allegations of the adulterous relationship that the Rev. Henry Ward Beecher (who had railed against Woodhull's free love philosophy) was having with Tilton's wife. This precipitated what was widely regarded as the sensational "trial of the century" when Beecher was charged with adultery. An important early biography compiled from notes gathered by Woodhull's third husband, the sanguineously named spiritualist Colonel Blood, published by the prominent abolitionist and reformer the year before Woodhull announced her candidacy for President. Uncommon. .

A fine and early photographic record of the picturesque german town of nuremberg. The plates are of the most interesting views of the ancient town wall that surrounded the old city of Nuremberg - with each view on its own original mount with printed border, title and imprint.

It is inscribed from the family of Lothar Faber. Lothar von Faber was the fourth generation to work in the family business of pencil-making. He proved to have a genius for both invention and marketing and by the end of the 19th century the firm of Faber-Castell was one of the largest of its kind in the world. The firm is still going strong and produces over 1.8 billion pencils a year. Photos available upon request!, Livre

A little rubbed, lower fore-corner showing mild signs of damp, hinges starting, half-title browned, else very good. Mounted photographic portrait frontispiece. First edition. The author held a position equivalent to chancellor of the exchequer at the court of the young Nawab of Tonk, a small Muslim kingdom in Rajasthan, hedged on all sides by Hindu-ruled states. After the death of the Thakoor of Lawa , the largest tributary of Tonk, and a number of his retainers at the home of the prime minister of Tonk, the local political agent Lieut.-Col. Eden supported Lawa's claims in the incident and deposed the Nawab. Hassan was a key member in a deputation that set out for London to appeal against the local agent's findings. He gives a highly-detailed account of the voyage from Bombay to Jedda via Aden and Hodyda, and of the journey on camel-back to Mecca, where they complete the Hajj, and on to Medina to see The Prophet's tomb. The party then returned to Jedda, from where Hassan set out for London via Suez and Marseilles. Hassan's appeal was unsuccessful, and the Nawab's son continued in his stead. Attractive and unusual account, with much on Mecca and the proceedings of the hajj. Not in Macro. [Attributes: First Edition]

Wohl vollständige Sammlung der erstmals 1867-74 in über 150 Einzellieferungen bei der Hamburger Vereinsbuchhandlung erschienenen Reihe. Das Lieferungswerk konnte nur im Abonnement über den Kolportagebuchhandel bezogen werden. Als der Autor erkannte, dass seine Criminalgeschichten sich vor allem bei Eisenbahnreisenden größter Beliebtheit erfreuten, gab er zusätzlich eine illustrierte Eisenbahnausgabe heraus, bei der drei bis vier Erzählungen zusammengefasst wurden. Hier erschienen insgesamt 17 Bände mit einem durchschnittlichen Umfang von 150 Seiten. Die uns vorliegenden Bände dürften dieser zugrunde liegen. (vgl. dazu: Haug C., Reisen und Lesen im Zeitalter der Industrialisierung: die Geschichte des Bahnhofs- und Verkehrsbuchhandels.. S.118). Vereinigt nahezu alle bekannten Kriminalfälle der damaligen Zeit. Ob Serienmörder Dumollard, die giftige Geheimrätin Ursinus, die Wiedertäufer in Münster, Cartouche, Dombrowsky, Riembauer, der Mordbrenner Horst, Oppenheimer, Seeräuber Schwarzbart und sogar die Bean Family. Die Fälle beruhen auf Niederschriften der Gerichte und reihen sich damit in die Pitaval-Tradition ein. - Herausgegeben durch den deutschen Politiker, Juristen und Schriftsteller Jodocus Temme (1798-1881). T. wurde wegen seines politischen Engagements 1851 aus dem preußischen Staatsdienst ohne Pensionsansprüche entlassen und ging aufgrund weiterer politischer Verfolgung im Jahre 1852 nach Zürich in die Emigration, wo er eine bis 1861 unbesoldete Professur für Rechtswissenschaften antrat. Zu dieser Zeit verdiende er seinen Lebensunterhalt vor allem mit literarischen Arbeiten (Kriminal- und Gesellschaftsromane) und seiner publizistischer Tätigkeit. Seine zahlreichen Kriminalerzählungen waren meist unter dem Pseudonym 'Heinrich Stahl' verfasst.

        Cumloden Papers.

      Edinburgh: Printed for Private Circulation, 1871 - Quarto (278 × 214 mm). Contemporary purple hard-grain half morocco, title gilt to spine, single rule to spine and corner edges, purple linen sides, all edges gilt. Spine sunned, slightly rubbed, prelims foxing, else a very good copy. Oval Woodburytype portrait frontispiece, 2 mounted Woodburytypes. First edition of this uncommon memoir of "auld grog Wullie", printed in an edition of just 50 copies. OCLC locates just six copies; only one copy appears in auction records in the last 30 years. The work contains a lengthy biographical preface; Stewart's own journal of the Baltic Expedition and the Battle of Copenhagen, where he "was himself on Nelson's flagship and wrote what was regarded as the best account of the battle"(ODNB); his correspondence with Nelson, 1801–05 (Stewart's son was named Horatio at Nelson's request, and Nelson recommended Stewart to St. Vincent as "the rising hope of our Army"); and with Wellington, 1810–21, under whom Stewart served with distinction in the Peninsula. Stewart, "open-hearted and honourable in the highest degree", was very popular amongst the men of his division, which may have been at least partly down to the extra rum rations that earned him his soubriquet (and which Wellington insisted Stewart pay for personally). Not in Sandler. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Autographed Letter Signed on "Headquarters Army of the United States" letterhead

      Washington, D.C., 1871. unbound. Three-page handwritten letter with outstanding content, 8 x 5 inches, Washington, D.C., June 22, 1871. Written to former Confederate Brigadier General Marcus J. Wright, commander of the District of Atlanta, in full: "Your note of June 1, awaited me here on my return from Texas. It is sharp that you even noticed in the newspaper of the day the fact that less than a year ago Capt. Buel of the Ordinance Department, the same who was on my staff at Atlanta, and who was taken prisoner the day before we entered that place, was murdered at the U.S. Arsenal Fort Leavenworth, by a discharged soldier. Buel had punished this man for some offense and was retiring from a party inside Leavenworth to his own house, just outside after entering his own yard, with his wife on his arm, was shot dead by a man concealed in a brush within a few feet. The man for a time escaped, but was hunted and at last caught, he was so badly wounded in capture that he started confessing the deed, and assigning as a reason the fact that he had been punished by Capt. Buel. Buel's widow [Josephine] is now living with her father Surgeon Charles McDougall, U.S. Army at Jefferson Barracks, St. Louis, Mo." Note: David Hillhouse Buel, a staff officer assigned to General Sherman, was captured in Atlanta and held prisoner from September 7 to 28, 1864 by Confederate General Marcus J. Wright. As this letter indicates, both General Sherman and General Wright remembered him affectionately. In a further twist to the story, Josephine Buel, after the assassination of her husband, went to Jefferson Barracks and stayed with her brother Captain Thomas M. McDougall of the 7th Cavalry. While there, she was introduced to her brother-in-law Oliver Buel whom she married. Her brother would be best remembered for commanding a pack train escort on June 25, 1876 at the Battle of Little Big Horn. Mounting strip on the back of the black back page; faint staining on the first page; natural folds. Very good(-) condition. Distinguished Civil War General, who upon the election of U.S. Grant to the Presidency, was promoted to the rank of "General of the Army.

Many varieties of birds to which Dresser accorded full specific status are today considered to be only subspecies, but although the text of the book may be outmoded, the illustrations alone make it, even today, a valuable work in every sense.' -Tate-
