        Eigenh. Brief m. Unterschrift.

      Graz, 13. IV. 1871. 3 1/2 S., 8°. [An den österr. Chemiker u. Mineralogen Anton Schrötter von Kristelli (1802-1875)]. - „[...] 1855 wurde er Berater des neuen Marinekommandanten Erzherzog Ferdinand Max. Ab 1854 war er Linienschiffskapitän und Kommandant der Fregatte Venus. Bald darauf konnte er seinen fortschrittsbegeisterten Herrn für den Plan einer Weltumseglung gewinnen, mit deren Planung er 1856 betraut wurde. Als Commodore der Fregatte Novara befehligte er persönlich die Expedition, die vom 30. April 1857 bis 26. August 1859 dauerte. Zahlreiche Forschungsergebnisse, reiche Sammlungen für entstehende Wiener Museen und hohes Ansehen für die kaiserliche Marine waren die wichtigsten Ergebnisse dieser Weltumseglung (der zweiten unter österreichischer Flagge). Er konnte aufgrund seiner wissenschaftlichen Kenntnisse alle ozeanographischen, hydrographischen und meteorologischen Beobachtungen selbst vornehmen. Für seine wissenschaftlichen Leistungen wurde er u.a. 1863 als Ehrenmitglied in die Kgl. Bayerische Akademie der Wissenschaften aufgenommen“ (Wikipedia). --- Der in Olmütz geborene Anton Schrötter, Sohn eines Apothekers, studierte ab 1822 zunächst auf Wunsch seines Vaters in Wien Medizin, wechselte dann aber unter dem Einfluss von Friedrich Mohs zu den naturwissenschaftlichen Fächern, speziell der Mineralogie. 1827 erhielt er eine Assistentenstelle für Physik und Mathematik an der Universität Wien. 1830 wurde er Professor für Physik und Chemie am Technischen Institut Joanneum in Graz. Während eines halbjährigen Urlaubs im Jahre 1838 besuchte er chemische Institute in Göttingen, Heidelberg, Frankfurt und Paris. In Gießen machte er sich bei Justus von Liebig mit der organischen Elementaranalyse vertraut. Ab 1843 arbeitete er als Professor für technische Chemie am Polytechnischen Institut der Universität Wien und übernahm dort 1845 die Professur für allgemeine Chemie. Schrötter war neben Baumgartner, Ettingshausen und Haidinger einer der Begründer der Kaiserlichen Akademie der Wissenschaften in Wien und wurde 1850 ihr Generalsekretär. Die Deutsche Akademie der Naturforscher Leopoldina wählte Schrötter 1856 zu ihrem Mitglied. Ab 1868 leitete er das österreichische Hauptmünzamt und wurde gleichzeitig zum Ministerialrat ernannt. Er wurde 1874 in den Ruhestand versetzt und eröffnete in seiner Wohnung ein Privatlaboratorium, in dem er Studien über Edelmetalle betrieb. 1875 starb er in Wien. Schrötter hat in seinem Leben ca. 60 wissenschaftliche Publikationen verfasst. Ab 1845 beschäftigte Schrötter sich intensiv mit Phosphor. 1848 gelang ihm der Nachweis der schon von Berzelius geäußerten Vermutung, dass roter Phosphor eine allotrope Modifikation des weißen Phosphors, nicht aber eine Phosphorverbindung ist. Schrötter wandelte weißen Phosphor durch Erhitzen in roten um, den man zeitweise Schrötterschen Phosphor nannte. Sein Verfahren zur Darstellung desselben revolutionierte die Streichholzindustrie, wo roter Phosphor schon bald als Bestandteil der Reibflächen genutzt wurde. Er war ein Organisator in Industrie und Wissenschaft sowie Berater bei den Vorbereitungen zur Novara-Expedition und zur Österreich-Ungarischen Nordpolexpedition. - Gefaltet. - Versand D: 12,00 EUR Wüllerstorf-Urbair, Schrötter, Novara, Brief, Letter, Lettre, Briefe, Autograph, Autographe, Autographen, Autograf, Autografe, Autografen, Signatur, Signiert, Signed, Signature, Unterschrift, Eigenhändig, Handschrift, Handschriften, Manuscript, Manuscrit, ALS, A.L.S., LAS, L.A.S.

        PROMISSORY NOTE MADE PAYABLE TO MANNEN CLEMENTS, GONZALES, TEXAS, DATED MARCH 21, 1871, AND SIGNED BY COLUMBUS C. CARROLL

      Privately printed, 1871., 1871. 3 ½" x 8 1/4." Printed form by Kiggins & Kellogg, William Street, N.Y with vignette of 2 sailors standing along side barrels and an anchor and standing under a star-spangled arch. A promissory note made payable to and signed by M. Clements for 386 gold dollars. "On the first October 1871 I promise to pay to the Order of M. Clements Three Hundred Eighty Six Gold Dollars, at 10% Interest from maturity until paid. Value received. No. 65. Due October 1st, 1871. Signed C.C. Carroll." Signed by Clements on verso and making it payable to Geo. C. Tennille. Also, 18 cattle brands have been hand-drawn with number of cattle and price for each (apparently by Clements' hand), all totaling up to $386. C.C. Carroll is Columbus C. Carroll, a trail-driving contractor from Gonzales, Texas who in 1871, in conjunction with Jake Johnson and Crawford "Doc" Burnett, gathered several thousand head of cattle and drove them in successive herds of 1000 - 2000 head each to Abilene, Kansas. "Doc" Burnett had a contract with P.D. Armour & Co. of Chicago to deliver to Abilene 10,000 big steers, 4 years and older at a price of $12 in gold per steer. Carroll and Johnson took the first herd of the season, leaving Gonzales in March, 1871. Carroll hired 18 year old John Wesley Hardin, who had already killed 13 men, to manage the next herd which followed a week or so after the first herd. Hardin's cousin, Jim Clements, accompanied Hardin with this second herd. Mannen Clements managed the third herd for "Doc" Burnett, and was accompanied by his brothers Joe and Gip Clements. Columbus Carroll arrived in Abilene in May. Abilene was the wildest of Kansas cattle towns at that time, with newly-hired City Marshal Wild Bill Hickok assisted by Tom Carson, nephew of Kit Carson, and famous Texas gunfighters Ben Thompson and Phil Coe, owners and operating the famous Bull's Head Saloon. Carroll sent word to Hardin to join him in town. Hardin arrived in Abilene on June 1 after a trail-drive on which Hardin had killed 2 Indians, and due to an incident in which Hardin felt his herd was being crowded by another herd, he killed 5 Mexican cowboys and Jim Clements killed l. Carroll "squared" things for Hardin with Hickok and other city officers with a bribe so they would overlook Hardin's "indiscretions." The first night Hardin was in town Carroll got into an argument with Tom Carson and Carson pulled a gun on him. In turn, Hardin pulled a gun on Carson and forced Carson to leave. The next day neither Hickok nor Carson said anything to Carroll or Hardin about it. Ben Thompson had been telling Hardin that Hickok didn't like southerners, and that he was out to get Hardin. Thompson suggested that Hardin should kill Hickok, but Hardin told Thompson that he wasn't there to do Thompson's killing for him ... the tension was high! A couple of days later one of the most famous, legendary incidents in the lives of Wild Bill Hickok and John Wesley Hardin took place. As City Marshal, Hickok had banned the carrying of a revolver in Abilene and had posted notices around town. Hardin was continuing to wear 2 pistols and was told by Hickok it was against the law. Hardin followed Hickok outside where Hickok turned suddenly and asked Hardin, "What are you doing with pistols on?" Hardin responded that he was "taking in the town," at which point Hickok pulled his pistol out and said, "Take those pistols off. I arrest you." Hardin calmly removed both pistols and offered both to Hickok, with butts forward. As Hickok reached for them, Hardin quickly performed the "Border Roll" by rolling both pistols over in his hands, and stuck them, fully cocked, into Hickok's face. According to Hardin, he cussed Hickok, but as bystanders began to encourage him to kill Hickok, Hardin stated to the bystanders that he would kill the first man that interfered. Hardin and Hickok then entered the Apple Jack Saloon for a long discussion in a private room, and emerged later as buddies. Carroll remained in town with Hardin, eventually returning to Texas later that summer. M. Clements is Mannen Clements, cousin of John Wesley Hardin, who managed a trail herd following up the herds of Columbus Carrol and Hardin. Mannen Clements had problems on the trail with 2 cowboys who refused to work night guard duty on the herd, brothers Joe and Dolph Shadden. The Shadden brothers refused to work night duty and demanded their pay, which Clements refused. They stayed with the herd but began telling other cowboys that they were going to kill Clements. On July 10, when Mannen Clements returned to camp from herd duty, he was suddenly confronted by the Shaddens, but he was prepared with a pistol under his slicker. Clements shot and killed both brothers, after a narrowly missed shot by Dolph and a hand-to-hand struggle. Shortly after, Mannen and brother Gip went to Abilene to seek out Hardin for help. Hardin asked Columbus Carroll and Jake Johnson to "square" things with Hickok and others, but Carroll got drunk and failed. That night when Hardin and Mannen were in the American House for supper, Hickok and Deputy J.H. McDonald approached and stated that he had a telegram to arrest Mannen Clements and for Clements to consider himself under arrest. Hardin pulled Hickok off to the side and asked if Columbus Carroll had "squared" things for Clements. Wild Bill stated, "No, Carroll is drunk, why didn't you 'square' things yourself?" Hickok jailed Clements, but later released him at midnight, and Clements immediately rode south for Texas. Mannen was never tried for the killing of Joe and Dolph Shadden. In 1872 Mannen helped Hardin escape from a jail in Gonzales County, Texas, by slipping him a file, then pulling him between the jagged bars by a lariat. Much of the next few years had Mannen, along with his brothers and John Wesley Hardin, deeply involved in the bloody Taylor-Sutton Feud. Related to the Taylors by marriage, the Clements brothers participated in many events in this feud with Mannen eventually signing the second truce agreement in 1874. In 1877 Clements found himself in jail in Austin, along with Hardin, Bill Taylor, John Ringo, and members of the Sam Bass gang. Mannen spent the next several years ranching in San Saba, McCulloch, and Runnels counties. By 1880 Clements had accumulated vast horse and cattle herds on his McCulloch County Ranch and was suspected of rustling. In 1887 Clements ran for sheriff of the newly formed Runnels County, with the heated campaign resulting in Clements being killed in Ballinger, Texas, on March 29, 1887, by City Marshal Joseph Townsend. Geo. C. Tennille is George Culver Tennille. Born in 1825 or 1826, Tennille was much older than Hardin and the Clements. He was a farmer and raised stock in De Witt County, and appears in the 1870 Gonzales County census. Two of Tennille's daughters married Clements brothers, Jim and Joe. Tennille, with Mannen Clements, helped Hardin escape the Gonzales jail in 1872, and was a primary participant in the Sutton-Taylor Feud. Tennille was a signer of the 1873 and 1874 truce agreements, but was ultimately killed on July 8, 1874, by a Gonzales County posse headed by Sheriff Green Dewitt. Research indicates that the brands shown on verso of document are brands for C. Clements, Mrs. S. McCoy (?), T.N. Mathews or Mrs. R. Quinney (?), Mrs. Nancy Burton, Mrs. M.E. Murray (?), R.F. Sellers, "80 John" Wallace or L.C. Wright (?), Clemons & Rayborn (?), E.B. Bacon. Stained and with light chipping to edge. Document is in very good condition. This promissory note, with the cattle brands, number of cattle, and value of the cattle listed on the back being consistent with "Doc" Burnett's contract, is clearly related to the famous above described trail drives to Abilene, Kansas. Events in Abilene by Columbus Carroll and Mannen Clements and the clear association with legendary western gunfighters like John Wesley Hardin, Wild Bill Hickok, Ben Thompson, Phil Coe, as well as the Clements brothers, make this document an important record of the 1871 cattle drives. The involvement of Mannen Clements and George C. Tennille in the famous and tragic Sutton-Taylor Feud, and its association with John Wesley Hardin further enhance the importance of this document. A rare first-hand record signed by Mannen Clements and Columbus Carroll.

        The Descent of Man, and Selection in Relation to Sex

      London: John Murray,, 1871. In Two Volumes. With Illustrations. 2 volumes, octavo. Original green cloth, titles to spines gilt, sides with panels blocked in blind, dark blue coated endpapers. Engravings throughout. Spines darkened, ends frayed and a little worn, rear joint of Vol. I split to foot with glue repair, front joint of Vol. II split at foot, hinges cracked but holding, tips bumped and slightly worn, edges rubbed, 5 cm closed tear to half-title of Vol. II. A very good set. First edition, first issue with the errata on the verso of the title leaf of vol. II. Here the word "evolution" appears for the first time in any of Darwin's works, preceding its appearance in the sixth edition of The Origin of Species the following year. Darwin had hoped that one of his supporters might tackle the thorny question of human evolution, but was forced to face the logic of his own theory himself. Darwin deviated from his ostensible subject of mankind to describe sexual selection in the animal kingdom, enabling him to answer those who saw peacock tails as an expression of divine aesthetics. Darwin also set out a definite family tree for humans, tracing their affinity with the Old World monkeys, and laid out his views on the evolutionary origins of morality and religion. "The Descent, understood by Darwin as a sequel to the Origin, was written with a maturity and depth of learning that marked Darwin's status as an élite gentleman of science" (ODNB).

        Paris a Sangre y Fuego. Jornadas de la Comuna [bound with] Proceso de la Commune de Paris. Relación completa y detallada de todas las causas [...] contra los jefes de la ultima insurrección de Paris

      Barcelona: Librería Española de I. Lopez, 1871. First Edition. A popular and sensational account, for Spanish readers, of the Paris Commune and its aftermath. The first title provides a general narrative of events, heavily illustrated with portraits of the principal figures among both the communards and their opposition, as well as documentary images of Paris in the throes of insurrection. Of special interest is the vividly colored half-title, a striking portrayal of women revolutionaries, the so-called "petroleuses" in action, marching forth with guns and swords while Paris burns in the background. The second title, issued in 30 serial parts of 8 to 12 pages each (all present here), provides a daily account of the state trials of the Commune's leaders that followed the insurrection, beginning in August, 1871 (military tribunals through the summer had already resulted in the incarceration, execution, or deportation of more than 10,000 rank-and-file communards). The proceedings include abridged transcriptions of the major pieces of testimony, with woodcut portraits of convicts and prosecutors; title-pages of most issues are illustrated either with portraits or views. The Second Series, beginning with the issue for September 4th, 1871, deals heavily with the trials of the petroleuses. Both titles rare; OCLC gives four locations for the Jornadas (Yale only in North America); seven locations for the Proceso, of which three are in the U.S. (Yale, N'Western, Michigan). A facsimile edition of the Jornadas was issued by a Spanish publisher in 1979. We would note that two extant copies of the Jornadas are bound, as with our copy, together with the Proceso, suggesting that the publisher issued at least some copies in this format. We would also note that a Spanish government publication, apparently a complete transcript of the state trials, shares its title with the Proceso, but given that it was issued by a different printer and runs to some 700 pages we presume little actual overlap in terms of contents. First title 4to; 46,[2]pp; chromolithographic half-title and advertising leaf; woodcut illustrations in text, one chromolithographic plate at end of text. Second title in two parts, with separate title pages (as issued), comprising: First Series, hojas 1-22; 174pp; Second Series, hojas 1-8, 64pp. All three parts bound as one in recent black quarter-leather over decorated boards. General toning, with occasional foxing, to contents; probable trimming to margins; color plates still bright and clean; Very Good.

      San Francisco, 1871. Titlepage printed in red and green. Original limp purple cloth, stamped in gilt and blind, white cloth backstrip. Cloth sunned, rear cover repaired with tape at upper edge. Two small chips in titlepage, else quite clean internally. Very good. Lacking a plate. A scarce illustrated pamphlet promoting the lovely Napa Valley community of Calistoga and its healing springs. "Justly called the Saratoga of the Pacific, Calistoga has been a renowned resort for over a hundred years. This guide proudly describes the numerous advantages and beauties of the northern section of the Napa Valley. Originally settled by Sam Brannan, Calistoga provides the visitor with natural mud baths, geysers, mineral baths, the grape cure, and the famous 'air and sun' cure to this day" - Howell. The map shows routes to Calistoga Springs from various places throughout California. The attractive plates (like the map, lithographed by Britton & Rey) show various views of Calistoga, including the railroad depot, Mount St. Helena, vineyards, the swimming baths, and Wapoo Indians. We can locate only two copies of this attractive work offered for sale in the past thirty-five years, one copy at auction in 1991, and the copy offered by Warren Howell in his Catalogue 50. Two copies were offered by the Holmes Book Company as part of the Norris Collection in 1948, one with the folding view of "Calistoga Springs in 1871" (priced $5) and one without (priced $3). The present copy lacks the folding view. A scarce promotional, with early and attractive views of this Napa Valley landmark.

        THE JACK KNIFE WAR [caption title]

      [New York, 1871. Tanned. Some edge wear, faint stain in lower corner. Overall, very good. A scathing satirical print, castigating the Tammany Hall organization and its leader, "Boss" William Marcy Tweed. The 1870 New York City charter, written by Tweed and his cronies, gave the Tweed ring vast powers to deplete the city's treasury. This cartoon was issued shortly after the passage of the charter, and criticizes the leeway given to Tweed by New York's leading political figures. This print is interesting for many reasons, not least of which is it gives an image of Tweed apart from the famous Thomas Nast cartoons. Reilly gives a detailed description of the image: "Tweed, as the Indian Tammany, raises his tomahawk to decapitate an unidentified man whose head lies on a stump. On his arm is tattooed a large '6,' a reference to the Americus or 'Big Six' Fire Company, which Tweed led in his earlier days. The victim moans, 'Putty can't save me.' Three severed heads already hang from Tweed's belt. Beside him an unidentified man standing beneath a hangman's rope remarks, 'Bad noose for me.' Behind a podium or railing in the background stands New York mayor A. Oakley Hall, who proclaims, 'I am monarch of all I appoint.' The new charter gave Hall authority to appoint all city officials. Governor John T. Hoffman, next to Hall, cries, 'Save me from my friends.' City Chamberlain Peter Barr Sweeny holds a key and sits on a chest, vowing, 'Upon this charter let us build.' City Comptroller Richard B. Connolly rests his hand on a bag 'New York City Treasury' and remarks, 'Richard is himself again.' At far left an unidentified man (possibly President Ulysses S. Grant) holding a pen asserts, 'My voice is still for peace.' ('Let us have peace' was Grant's 1868 campaign slogan.)" Also on the left is a group of journalists, evidently prospective victims of Tweed's axe. Among them is Horace Greeley, editor of the NEW YORK TRIBUNE. Reilly attributes the print to the Currier & Ives shop, on the basis of style, though it is not listed in the Currier and Ives catalogue raisonné. OCLC locates only the copy at the Library of Congress. A scarce and important depiction of corrupt New York politics in the era of Boss Tweed and Tammany Hall.

        King George's Middy

      Boston: Roberts Brothers, 1871. First American edition. viii, 501, [1] pp. Thick 12mo. Publisher's rust pebbled cloth. Covers lightly worn, front hinge cracked. First American edition. viii, 501, [1] pp. Thick 12mo. Inscribed by Alger to his Pupil George Seligman. Inscribed to George (Washington) Seligman (b. 1858), son of the prominent financier Joseph Seligman: "George Seligman, from his affectionate friend, Horatio Alger Jr. Jan. 6 1871." Alger was hired by the senior Seligman to tutor his five sons, and Alger lived at his employer's house for seven years. "Isaac and George Seligman soon became devoted to their instructor, and found his easy-going, good-humored manner greatly conducive to learning. Part of the time was passed studying grammar, literature, Greek and Latin, and at least once each week Horatio would take them strolling through nearby streets ..." (Gardner, Horatio Alger, p. 200). Seligman was very pleased with Alger and on his recommendation Alger later tutored Benjamin Cardozo. The Seligmans also opened a successful investment account at their firm to manage Alger's literary earnings. The Seligman family was the subject of one of the most widely publicized cases of anti-Semitism in the 19th century. Arriving at Saratoga in their private railway car, they were turned away by the Grand Union Hotel, where they had previously stayed. The New York Times headlined the refusal, and Henry Ward Beecher preached a sermon against discrimination. George Washington Seligman attended Columbia College and Columbia Law School and later joined the family firm.

As historical influence, enormously important." - Bleiler, Science Fiction: The Early Years 298.

        GENERAL SHERMAN IN CALIFORNIA 1846 - 1850 [manuscript title]

      Washington, D.C., 1871. Folio. Contemporary three-quarter morocco and cloth, gilt, spine gilt, raised bands. Boards rubbed and shelfworn. A few leaves with some small tears or chips, but on the whole very neat, clean, and legible. Near fine. An exceptional American manuscript memoir, this is the original manuscript of General William Tecumseh Sherman's memoirs of his experiences in California from 1846 to 1850. Written entirely in Sherman's hand, the manuscript describes his experiences during the Mexican-American War, the American conquest of California, the discovery of gold at Sutter's Fort in 1848, and the subsequent Gold Rush. This is the original text of what became the first two chapters of Sherman's MEMOIRS..., regarded as a classic American autobiography. General Sherman began writing a memoir of his life before the Civil War some time around 1870, chiefly for the edification of his family. The present manuscript is that memoir, written entirely in Sherman's hand. The manuscript is dated March 1871, and Sherman presented it to his loyal aide-de-camp, Joseph C. Audenried, at that time. These recollections of Sherman's early years in California became the first two chapters of his MEMOIRS, published in 1875. This original manuscript is therefore the earliest part of Sherman's memoir, and the earliest autobiographical writing in which he engaged. In early 1874, Sherman began to expand his memoirs to encompass the Civil War years, and this grew into a larger, more disciplined project, which resulted in a two- volume work, published in 1875 by Appleton and Company, entitled MEMOIRS OF GENERAL WILLIAM T. SHERMAN, WRITTEN BY HIMSELF. In the preface to the first edition Sherman wrote that he intended his memoir to be merely his "recollection of events, corrected by a reference to his own memoranda, which may assist the future historian when he comes to describe the whole, and account for the motives and reasons which influenced some of the actors in the grand drama of war." Sherman's work, priced $7 a set, was immediately popular, and sold some 10,000 copies in the three weeks after publication, and ultimately sold some 25,000 sets, for which Sherman was paid $25,000. The present manuscript is very much in the form of a rough draft, with numerous corrections, cross-outs, and emendations, and also with variations from the published text. For example, in the opening paragraph Sherman lists the officers stationed at Fort Moultrie, South Carolina in the Spring of 1846. In the published text a "Surgeon McLaren" is listed, while in this manuscript the name is given as "Surgeon Hawkins." The manuscript also shows clarifications and corrections by Sherman that were incorporated into the published text. This manuscript actually goes beyond the two chapters in Sherman's published memoirs devoted to his time in California, concluding with some of the initial events described in his chapter entitled "Missouri, Louisiana, and California 1850-1855," particularly his experiences in Washington. This portion is substantially different from the published version of Sherman's memoir. In all, this manuscript is an excellent source through which to study the writing, re-writing, and editing of Sherman's work. As mentioned, this manuscript became the first two chapters of the first edition of Sherman's published MEMOIRS (the second edition, published in 1886, added a preceding chapter, describing Sherman's life up to the Mexican-American War). Sherman recounts his being assigned to California, his voyage around Cape Horn in the winter of 1846-47, his scouting trips around California in 1847, and his assignment as assistant adjutant to Colonel Richard B. Mason, the civil and military governor of California. Sherman also relates how he received the news of the initial discovery of gold at Sutter's Fort, his meeting with Kit Carson, who brought the first overland mail to California, his trips to inspect the gold fields, and his drafting of an official report on the discoveries. In February 1849, Sherman became adjutant to General Persifor Smith, the new commander of the Division of the Pacific, and he describes those experiences, as well as his work surveying for land speculators and ranchers. In the Fall of 1849, Sherman attended the California constitutional convention at Monterey and describes his experiences there, as well as his observations in Sacramento as the region was flooded with gold seekers. Two excerpts from the text give fine examples of the high narrative quality and sense of immediacy with which Sherman recounts his experiences in California. The first describes the circumstances when he first heard of the great gold strikes, the second is his recollection of his first meeting with Kit Carson: "I remember one day in the Spring of 1848, two men Americans came into the office & inquired for the Governor. I asked their business and one answered that he had just come down from Captain Sutter on special business, and he wanted to see Governor Mason. I took them in to the Colonel and left them together. After some time the Colonel came to his door & called to me. I went in and my attention was directed to a series of papers unfolded on the table on which lay about half an ounce of Placer Gold. Mason said to me what is that? I touched it & examined one or two of the larger pieces & said, is it Gold? Mason asked me if I had ever seen native Gold, and I answered that in 1843 I was in upper Georgia and saw some native gold, but it was much finer than that, and that it was in a phial or transparent quill. But I said that if that was Gold it could be easily tested, first by its malleability and next by acids. I took a piece in my teeth and the metallic lustre was perfect." On Kit Carson: "As yet we had no regular mail to any part of the United States, but mails had come to us at long intervals around Cape Horn and one or two by land. I well remember the first overland mail. It was brought by Kit Carson in a saddle bag from Taos in New Mexico. We heard of his arrival at Los Angeles and waited patiently for his arrival at h'quarters. His fame then was at its height from the publication of Fremont's books and I was very curious to see a man who had achieved such feats of daring among the wild animals of the Rocky Mountains and still wilder Indians of the plains. At last his arrival was reported at the town in Monterey and I hurried to meet him. I cannot express my surprise at beholding a small, stoop shouldered man with reddish hair, freckled face, soft blue eyes, and nothing to indicate extraordinary courage or daring. He spoke but little, and answered questions in monosyllables. I asked for his mail and he picked up his light saddle bags containing the 'Great Overland Mail' and we walked together to Head Qrs., where he delivered his parcel into Col. Mason's own hands." This paragraph alone contains a few instances where the manuscript of Sherman's memoir is at variance with the published version. Mark Twain called Sherman "a master of narrative," and literary critic Edmund Wilson wrote that while Ulysses S. Grant's PERSONAL MEMOIRS... are "aloof and dispassionate," in Sherman's memoir "the man is all there in his book; the book is the man speaking." Wilson goes on in his appreciation of Sherman: "He had a trained gift of self-expression....his memoirs are quite amazing. The vigorous accounts of his pre-war activities...is varied in just the right proportion and to just the right degree of vivacity with anecdotes and personal experiences....He tells us what he thought and what he felt, and he never strikes any attitudes or pretends to feel anything which he does not feel. His frankness and self-dependence, his rectitude in whatever he undertakes...and his contempt for petty schemes and ambitions, together with a disregard for many conventional scruples, make Sherman, in spite of his harshness, a figure whom we not only respect but cannot help liking." This original manuscript of the California section of Sherman's MEMOIRS was presented by Sherman to his long- serving, trusted aide-de-camp, Colonel Joseph C. Audenried. Sherman has written, below the manuscript title, "presented to Col. Audenried A.D.C. by General Sherman in consideration of Col. Audenried having copied the same for the General. Hd. Qr. of the Army Washington D.C. March 17, 1871." At the conclusion of the text is a similar inscription. It appears that Sherman gave this copy of his original manuscript memoir to Audenried after Audenried made a copy for Sherman himself to keep. This copy, entirely in Sherman's hand and the original manuscript of the memoir has descended through the Audenried family, appearing on the market here for the first time. Joseph Crain Audenried (1839-80) was born in Pennsylvania and graduated from West Point in 1861. Brevetted a second lieutenant, he assisted in organizing and training troops in Washington before being assigned as an aide to several generals, including Daniel Tyler, William H. Emory, Edwin Sumner, John Wool, and Ulysses S. Grant. In October 1863, Audenried was transferred to General William Tecumseh Sherman's command, and he served as Sherman's aide-de-camp and principal assistant until his death in 1880 at age forty. With Sherman, Audenried participated in the events for which Sherman is most famous: the siege of Atlanta, the March to the Sea, and the March through the Carolinas. He was promoted to captain in the 6th Cavalry in 1866, and then to colonel in 1869. Audenried was stationed with Sherman at St. Louis for much of this time, and joined his commander in the Indian Wars of the West and on tours of the West, and also on Sherman's tour of Europe and the Middle East in 1871-72. Audenried married Mary Colkett in 1863, and the two had a daughter, Florence, in 1867. After Audenried's death in 1880, Sherman and Mary Audenried grew quite close, and it has been speculated that the married commander engaged in an affair with his aide's widow. The original manuscript of General William Tecumseh Sherman's memoir of his time in California during the tumultuous late 1840s. A highly significant portion of one of the great American memoirs.
