        [Manuscript]: A Reconstruction Era Manuscript Journal and Related Scrapbooks of Andrew J. Haynes of Missouri, circa 1866-72. Three Volumes

      (Callaway County, Missouri), 1872. Good. Three volumes. Folios. Quarter-bound in contemporary leather and marbled paper over boards. Each volume with Haynes ownership signature and address in ink: "Fulton, Callaway County, Missouri / Scientia est Potentia," and the journal with a bookseller's ink stamp: "Mack & Bro. Dealers in Books and Stationery, Sedalia, Missouri." Wear to the boards and leather spine backs, one scrapbook ledger with both boards detached, else overall good or better.Three related volumes by Andrew J. Haynes, in which he sets forth his critical views on Negro suffrage, radical Republicans, the standing of women, and other political and social issues relating to the 1868 Presidential election and other controversial Reconstruction era policies. The main journal volume consists of approximately 196 manuscript pages of Haynes's writings and notes, most dating from 1866-72, and include a few earlier and later entries. The two accompanying scrapbooks consist of about 100 and 75 pages respectively, most with newspaper articles pasted on both sides of each sheet. Some articles have manuscript notes by Haynes; both of the scrapbook ledgers were also used by Haynes to write letter drafts and keep financial accounts from the 1860s through the early 1880s. Most of the articles are contemporary Reconstruction related political speeches and commentaries, including, for example, George William Curtis's speech on "Woman Suffrage" at the New York Constitutional Convention. Although not much is known about Haynes, he was about 20 in 1868 (as noted below), and he is recorded on the Union regimental roster of the 49th Missouri Volunteer Infantry, Company F, at age 17.Haynes opens the main journal volume with a series of handwritten articles addressed to the "Editors, Telegraph" which he signs using the pseudonym of the famous 18th Century anonymous polemicist: "Junius." The articles date from 1868, written prior to the November election, when Haynes was about 20. In the first: "A View of the Situation; The Presidential Campaign -- Negro Suffrage," Haynes admits that he is not "an eligible voter, on account of minority of age," yet he is compelled to speak out publicly against "those that have engulfed our country with discussions of so pernicious a nature -- so destructive to individual freedom and civil rights ... ." In this and two other signed articles he attacks the Freedmen's Bureau, the radical Republicans, and Congress in particular for enacting laws that are "tending to destroy ... the heredity rights of a large portion of the lawful voter of our states ... ." And he makes the case in support of the Democratic ticket of Seymour and Blair against Grant and Colfax:"If they [Grant and Colfax] are elected, they and Congress will transfer to the negro the rights that white men only should enjoy, your rights as jurors, legislators and electors, and declare you ineligible. But the time would come, when the perfidy and heartlessness of those Jacobins would be exposed to the public gaze, and then -- the tocsin would sound -- war! war!! Impotent and affected advocates of the principals of Radicalism may ask: How do we know these measures would bring war? The answer is very easily given. The people of this nation are too intelligent and noble to submit to such an aggression by their ex-slaves; consequently they would suppress the aforesaid privileges, and there inevitability would follow war, bloody and exterminative."He also writes at length about the status of women in American society and women's suffrage. In his third article: "Woman -- What she is and Her Destiny" he makes the case that "woman is the nobler" sex; and that "She it is that has shaped, strengthened and caused to be developed those master minds" of the Western canon. Also included in the journal are two orations (dating from 1866 and 1869), that Haynes "delivered at Westminster College, Fulton, Mo.," and several other writings and notes on various topics, including a "Dissertation on the Study of the Law" dating from when he entered law school in 1867.An historically important and rare primary resource representing the views of many who nearly defeated Ulysses Grant in the Nation's first presidential election after the Civil War.

Anderson writes in the preface, ?has been written for learners, not for the learned! It has not been my object to extend the boundaries of our present system of photography, by excursion into debatable ground, but to present that which is generally admitted in a form easily comprehended.

        History of the First Bushmen's Club in the Australian Colonies, established at Adelaide, South Australia. Compiled from various sources, and furnishing in detail its origin and progress up to the present year, 1872; also miscellaneous readings, letters, etc

      Adelaide, 'published by Superintendent of Club', 1872. Octavo, viii, [9]-408 pages (the last 8 being advertisements) plus 2 frontispiece lithographs ('Present Bushmen's Home' and 'Proposed Bushmen's Home'). Flush-cut dark blue cloth over thin boards, with the short title in gilt on the front cover; cloth lightly marked and rubbed at the extremities; spine a little sunned; inner hinges cracked but firm; very occasional foxing, slightly heavier on the edges and endpapers; small light stain in the front gutter; an excellent copy. The name of the anonymous author, a cousin of the somewhat more famous Victor, is added in pencil on the title page. Ferguson 10643 (recording only 'blue morocco cloth boards'). 'By 1866 a ravaging northern drought accelerated the need to succour bush workers, who were often victims of their own excesses and were preyed upon between jobs. Hugo pressed for a "bushmen's home", like a seamen's home, as a quiet, sober refuge. Opposition came from those who saw it as a squatters' movement, but his canvassing, bushmen's subscriptions and philanthropic support enabled the home to open in Whitmore Square, Adelaide, in May 1870' (Australian Dictionary of Biography).

Oblong 8vo (6 x 8 inches0. A very early and well-written analysis by an amateur historian*, shortly afer the cessation of hostilities. The author begins: "It is but a few months since Europe saw the end of a struggle of which history affords so example. There have been fiercer battles fought, larger territories involved in the conflict, but never was there witnessed a more futile pretext for war, blind imprudence in the aggressor, or more consummate generalship & complete success on the opposite side ..." *Possibly by an American, given references to Abraham Lincoln, the American Revolution, "the freest nation in the world", etc). A good candidatate might possibly be Henry Percy Litchfield (see OCLC 10644238), of Long Island, whose papers are in George Washington U with the Litchfield family papers, and whose privately printed book THE FRANCO-GERMAN WAR OF 1870 (Gracehill, Brooklyn, L.I., 1872) was among the earliest studies of the war.

        Oriental landscape.

      Oil on wood, 42 x 60 cm. Un libro dedicato all'artista Vito Perona. - E' stato pubblicato in questi giorni un pregevole volume sul pittore ternano Vito Perona scritto da Mino Valeri e Claudia Sensi, con presentazione di Sandro Salvi. Si tratta di un'opera di particolare valore storico-documentario in quanto di Perona non si avevano notizie. L'artista, infatti, nato a Terni nel 1872, da giovanissimo aveva lasciato la città natale percorrendo un itinerario che lo aveva portato inizialmente a Parigi, quindi in Marocco, Tunisia e successivamente negli Stati Uniti e America Latina. Proprio questo suo peregrinare nei vari continenti, ha causato la dispersione di notizie biografiche e della sua stessa produzione artistica. E' stato, quindi, particolarmente difficoltoso per gli autori del volume, recuperare documenti inediti e un piccolo "corpus" di suoi dipinti. Pittore di impronta figurativa con uno stile fortemente personalizzato, Vito Perona ha espresso una produzione di particolare valenza estetica come testimoniano anche i successi che hanno arriso alle sue mostre tenute a Parigi e Bruxelles, a Mosca ed Algeri, in Canada nonché Argentina e Brasile. Il volume di Mino Valeri e Claudia Sensi ricostruisce le vicende storiche ed artistiche che è stato possibile reperire e comprende, oltre a saggi critici dei due autori, la documentazione a colori di una serie di dipinti e vari documenti d'epoca. I testi sono stati anche riportati in lingua portoghese, tradotti da Orfila Veronica Gobbi, in considerazione del fatto che Vito Perona ha trascorso gli ultimi anni della sua vita in Brasile, dov'è morto nel 1957 ed è sepolto nel cimitero di Belo Horizonte. Il volume, di pregio bibliografico, è fuori commercio. KEYWORDS:maps.

        Der Festungskrieg im Feldzuge gegen Frankreich 1870-1871 Mit 19 lithographiretn Plänen

      Berlin, Gustav Hempel, 1872.. Crown quarto. Pp. vi, 271. Plus 19 fine lithograph maps, some of which are folding, bound at end. Hardcover, bound in contemporary quarter calf and marbled boards, green vellum French corners, spine with false raised bands between compartments, gilt lettering direct; boards were partly detached at one time and inner hinges were expertly strengthened and joints mended; old military institutional stamps to title-page and verso of maps, discreet magnetic strip at bottom of one page, even browning to some maps, some spotting. Withal a respectful tome in good condition. ~ First edition. Very rare. Jordan 3768; Baldamus II, 52. See also: B. E. Palat: "Bibliographie générale de la guerre de 1870-1871" (Paris, 1896), p. 464. The charm of this book lies in the wonderful lithographic maps which clearly were not meant to serve as mere carriers of information but to provide charm and elegance due to their artistic merit. Six of the maps have a hole dug into them close to the blank margin, probably a rodent's activity, with very minor loss. They were all expertly restored by professional hand. One has the repair clearly in the blank margin and two others in practically blank areas of the image.

        A JOURNEY TO THE CENTRE OF THE EARTH

      1872 - [the TRUE first American] With Fifty-two Illustrations by Riou. New York: Scribner, Welford and Company | London: Griffith & Farran, 1872. 8 pp undated ads [G&F, in sterling]. Original orange cloth decorated in black and gilt. First British Edition (and first edition in the English language) -- this being a copy of THE HITHERTO-UNKNOWN AMERICAN ISSUE. Griffith & Farran of London first published this science fiction tale in English in November 1871 (but post-dated it 1872); the first edition printed in America, using this same translation, has long been known to be the one by Scribner Armstrong & Co., published in late 1873 (and so dated). Griffith & Farran's first edition was priced at an astronomical seven pounds per copy -- which may be why today it is, in our experience, THE scarcest British edition of any Jules Verne book.~ The present copy is from that first edition by Griffith & Farran -- with the G&F decorative binding (erroneously claiming 53 illustrations, disagreeing with the title page's correct 52) and the G&F ads. However, what sets this copy apart is that it has a cancel title leaf, on which the publisher is "New York: Scribner, Welford and Company | London: Griffith & Farran", followed by the date 1872.~Charles Welford first went to London in 1864 to begin buying English books for Charles Scribner (as his London agent); he would arrange with a London publisher to have a small number of copies of a British novel exported to America, which copies would bear a cancel title leaf reading (in 1871) "Scribner, Welford and Company". (It would be in 1872 that "Scribner Armstrong & Co." was formed -- and "Scribner Welford & Armstrong" for books imported from London; in mid-1878 Armstrong retired, and the firms' names changed to "Charles Scribner's Sons" and "Scribner & Welford" -- the latter of which continued to import books (such as G. A. Henty's) until the International Copyright Act was passed in 1891, making such importation no longer necessary.)~One other Verne book was imported into America bearing Welford's name -- MERIDIANA, in 1873; it is estimated that as few as 50 copies of that title were imported, as it is an extremely scarce book. Inasmuch as NO other copy of the "Welford" JOURNEY TO THE CENTRE OF THE EARTH has surfaced until now, 50 copies would clearly be on the high side of any estimate, with 10 or 12 being quite possible.~This copy is bound in orange cloth (green was also used for the G&F edition, but we don't know if any "Welford" copies were bound in that color). The volume appears quite clean and bright, though it has been recased in its original binding, with newer orange cloth added in behind (in effect providing new strong joints); the original endpapers are present, and all 52 plates are present.

His painstaking and highly detailed work was much appreciated not only by the publishing houses that employed him, such as Appleton's and Harper's, but also by the Continental Bank Note Company who for a time employed him producing plates for currency. In her recent study of Picturesque America, the historian of American graphic arts, Sue Rainey, notes that the book "enabled Americans, after the trauma of the Civil War, to construct a national self-image based on reconciliation between North and South and incorporation of the West" (Creating Picturesque America, 2001, p. xiii).

First edition. Ball was a freethinker born in Birmingham in 1844. He 'taught pyrotechny in the Sultan’s service 1870â€"71. Received the order of the Medjidieh after narrow escape from death by the bursting of a mortar. Upon his return published Poems from Turkey (Wheeler, A Biographical Dictionary of Freethinkers of All Ages and Nations). Enchanted by the topographical beauty of Istanbul and surroundings, Ball produced poetry in praise of Turkish scenery, life and wisdom. Both the frontispiece and the title are after drawings by the author. In the preface Ball, who was 'intimately connected with the Crystal Palace firework displays' (p. iv) explains what inspired him to his poetry: 'The free open scenery, the sweet fresh air, the wonderful reality as it seemed of Nature ever clad in bright sunshine, the many sights through which I was continually passing, spending each morning by the Bosphorus waves, and each afternoon traversing the Golden Horn to the Sweet Waters of Europe, where, beside the wide smooth stream and beneath the free open mountain-hills, my "Factory" of scattered white canvas sheds and green pavilion tents (not over now) spread itself in sunshine and cooling breeze; the triumph and strange novelty of speaking and writing Turkish successfully - the kindness and courtesy I met with - the respect and confidence I achieved - the success of all that I did - the beautiful sense of romance about everything, made it a period of deeply pleasant feelings' (pp. iii f.).

        La vuelta de Martín Fierro. 2º edición adornada con 10 láminas

      Librería Del Plata 187 , Buenos Aires - "El "poema Nacional" argentino – rarísima 2º edición de "Maríin Fierro". MUY RARA 2º EDICIÓN DE LA 2º PARTE DEL MARTÍN FIERRO, EL POEMA NACIONAL GUACHESCO ARGENTINO. El Gaucho Martín Fierro es un poema narrativo argentino, escrito en verso por José Hernández en 1872, obra literaria considerada ejemplar del género gauchesco en Argentina, Uruguay y Río Grande del Sur (al sur de Brasil). Presentamos aquí la 2º parte de esta obra, publicada por primera vez en 1879, llamada "La Vuelta de Martín Fierro". El autor narra en esta obra el carácter independiente, heroico y sacrificado del gaucho. Leopoldo Lugones, en su obra literaria El payador calificó a este poema como "el libro nacional de los argentinos" y reconoció al gaucho su calidad de genuino representante del país, emblema de la argentinidad. Para Ricardo Rojas representaba el clásico argentino por antonomasia. Todas las temprana ediciones del Martín Fierro y La Vuelta de Martín Fierro son muy difíciles de encontrar. No encontramos ejemplares de esta edición en OCLC. "Very rare second edition of the second part of Martin Fierro, the national gaucho poem of Argentina". 8vo; old stamp from Oscar Carbone, prestigeous Argentinean collector; 19th century. The Gaucho Martín Fierro is an Argentine Narrative Poem written in verse by José Hernández in 1872, a literary work considered the example of the Gaucho genre in Argentina, Uruguay, and Río Grande do Sul (southern Brazil). We offer here the second part of this work, published for the first time in 1879, called The Return of Martín Fierro. The author narrates in this work the independent, heroic, and sacrificial life of the gaucho. Leopoldo Lugones in his literary work El Payador classifies this poem as the "national book of the Argentinians" and recognized the gaucho as a genuine representative of the nation, an emblem of Argentinism. For Ricardo Rojas it represented the Argentine classic by name alone. All the early editions of Martín Fierro and La Vuelta de Martín Fierro are very difficult to find. We do not find copies of this edition on OCLC. 63 pp páginas [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Machzor] Kefi Minhag America: Tefilot Bnei Yeshurun le-Rosh Hashana. [The Divine Service of American Israelites for the New Year].

      Cincinnati Bloch & Co 1872 - Two volumes, duodecimo (17.2 x 12 cm). New Year - 212 pp.; Atonement - 307, [1], 55, [1] pp. Parallel texts in English and Hebrew, with psalms with additional German translation. Original dark brown cloth boards with gilt lettering to spines, gilt edges and blind-stamped decoration to covers of New Year volume; slight wear to edges. Atonement volume with stamp of Tobias Schanfarber to lower pastedown. A very nice copy. One of the first accepted Reform prayer books for the High Holidays in the United States. The volumes include numerous non-traditional prayers in English and German that are almost Protestant in tone, whilst omitting a number of traditional prayers such as Utnah Toqef, Kol Nidre and most of the Al Chets. The inclusion of German in the Siddur testifies to the essentially German character of the nineteenth century American denomination of Reform Judaism. This Siddur was intended to serve as the common prayer-book for all of America's Jews. Nevertheless, the community remained divided over traditional versus liberal payer-books and neither became dominant. The publisher of the volumes, Rabbi Isaac Mayer Wise (1819-1900), was a pioneer of Reform Judaism, and became its acknowledged leader and institutional architect. Wise organised the formation of the Union of American Hebrew Congregations (1873), the Hebrew Union College (1875) and the Central Conference of American Rabbis (1889). The reforms that he instituted sought to modernise Jewish teaching and adapt Jewish lifestyle to the conditions of life in a new land. Wise also played a crucial role in establishing the Central Conference of American Rabbis, in 1889, of which he later became president. The Union prayer-book was assigned by the Conference to all Reform congregations. The prayer-book was first published by Rabbi Wise in 1857 and was intended to address the initial conflict in the United States between supporters and opponents of traditionalism in early Reform Judaism. The roots of this Machzor date back to a programme Wise had laid out in the May 1847 issue of Isaac Leeser's Occident, in which he argues that American Jews came "from different countries, and, brought with them diverse Minhagim; and this circumstance must always prove a source of confusion and disagreement in the various Synagogues" and that it was necessary to create a new Minhag (custom of prayer) to "bring unity among. all the American Synagogues" and to "uphold the Word of the Living God. in the free country of America", without "the desire for innovation, nor the thirst for fame, nor a giddy disposition for reform".
