        Archive of Crimean War Sgt. Peter Leicht with two letters from General Charles Gordon and a report of Leicht's duties while serving

      Galatz, 1872. "The archive includes two letters from General Gordon dated March 23, 1872 from Galatz. The first letter is to Peter Leitch from Gordon expressing his feelings about Leicht leaving. Gordon writes, ""it is a great mistake and loss to us. Your age would give us at least 10 years more good work and we would gain by your experience . . ."" The other letter on the opposing side of this letter serves as a recommendation for Leicht reading part, ""I can testify to his integrity, zeal and ability in the perfomrance of his duties . . . I regret extremely by his leaving the service which he has so well and faithfully acquitted himself."" Both letters are signed by Gordon. The other two items in the archive are a marriage license dated July 27, 1899 between Charles Tye and Harriet Leicht. This certified copy is dated Dec. 30, 1915. Harriet was Peter's widow. The third item is a list of written extracts from ""Connolly's History of the (Royal Engineer) Royal Sapper and Miners and General Porters' history of the Corps of Royal Engineers. Written on Royal Engineer Horseguard official letterhead with an embossed seal. The excerpts are about the construction of a battery, ""The added work was partly constructed in the day under fire as was also the laying of the platforms - Corporal Peter Leicht promoted to Sergeant (was the principal officer in charge of the huts sent from this country to the Armied; and severely wounded in the assault on the Redan on 8. Sept. 1855) . . . ."" Also mentioned is the Siege of Sebastopal, ""The Carpenters, 16 in number were chosen men under Leitch, the master carpenter of the night attack, who had been daily in the trenches from the end of June. With energy never before surpassed they laid 4 gun platforms in No. 22."" The document goes on to talk about Leitch's wound to the head after a storming part of sappers, the Knights of the Imperial Order of the Legion of Honour of France, and the Victoria Cross."" Colonel Leicht received the Victoria Cross on June 18, 1856 for gallant deeds performed during the eventful siege. The details of his gallantry read, ""when after approaching it with the leading ladders, he formed a Caponniere across the ditch, as well as a ramp, by fearlessly tearing down gabions from the parapet, and placing them, and filling them until he was disabled from wounds."" The Victoria Cross is the highest and most prestigious award for gallantry in the face of the enemy that can be awarded to British and Commonwealth forces. His Victoria Cross is displayed at the Royal Engineers Museum. After the British Victory at The Battle of Alma, the British and French force advanced onto Sebastopol. The Russian Fortress naval base was laid under siege. The bombardment began on October 17th. The Allied Commanders General Lord Raglan and General Francois Canrobert decided to bombard the fortress as they did not posses enough forces to take it by storm. A British naval Squadron under the command of Admiral Sir Edmund Lyons bombarded Sebastopol from the sea. An attempt was made to relieve Sebastpol by the Russians by attacking the British supply port of Balaclava on the 25th October but this attempt failed. Prince Menshikov again tried an attack eleven days later on the Heights of Inkerman but this again was beaten off. A third attempt to dislodge the British force, was made on the 16th of August 1855, at the Chernaya River but failed. Several allied attempts in the spring of 1855 to take Sebastopol by storm failed. Finally on the 8th of September the French commanded by General Aimable Pelissier took Malakhov a fortification at the southern end of Sebastopol. The British under their new commander General Simpson (Lord Raglan had died) attacked and took the Redan, only to lose it again. On the 11th of September the Russian abandoned Sebastopol blowing up the defenses and all shipping in the harbour. This event ended the war. Although the Russian force was still intact and not defeated. Czar Alexanader II after the death of his father on March 2nd 1856 singed the final peace terms at the Congress of Paris on March 30th 1856."

Inscribed by the author on half title to Therese Henriques (1833-83), in whose home Andersen was a frequent visitor during the last fifteen years of his life. The house was full of life and happy days as a large circle of both Danish and foreign musicians and artists visited the salons and parties held there. The friendship with Henriques was established in August Bournonville's home, where the poet first heard the young, talented Therese Henriques playing the piano. Immediately, a warm friendship between the two was kindled, and it would last a lifetime. - Provenance: descendants of Henriques family. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        As a Strong Bird on Pinions Free Whitman's Copy

      First edition. Possibly 600 copies printed(University of South Carolina). Lightly rubbed, minor foxing on end papers with offsetting from bookplate at front, else an attractive, near fine copy.*** The title poem was written by the 53 year old Whitman as a commencement address for Dartmouth College on June 26, 1872. It received mixed reviews and a rather hilarious one on June 28 by the New York Post:*** "The Poem (?) of Walt Whitman was thirteen minutes in length, and just that much too long. The house was full when he began, but during the next ten minutes there was a wonderful dispersal. This was the first poem that Mr. Whitman has prepared for such an occasion, and we trust that he will not often be called upon to repeat it." *** Inscribed (March 1893, 1 year after Whitman's death) by Whitman's friend and executor, Horace Traubel, to an unknown recipient (due to Traubel's doctor-esque writing) stating that this copy is from Whitman's personal collection. While signed Whitman pieces are not uncommon, copies of books owned by the man himself are rare. A cool slice of Americana.

Addison helped set the pattern and establish the vogue for the periodical in the 18th-century, and cultivated a receptive audience for the emerging art form of the novel. “The Spectator made a mark in English literature, and fixed a form which was adopted with servile fidelity by many succeeding periodicals till the end of the century” (DNB). Armorial bookplate.Light dampstaining to bottom margin of about the first hundred pages of Volume IV. Light dampstaining to calf binding of a few volumes, very little rubbing. A near-fine set.

        Seiyo Tokei Benran].

      - Tokyo, Yamatoya Kihee 1872 [Meiji 5]. 185x80mm publisher's stiff wrapper with title label (marked), accordian folding to form 34pp with woodblock illustrations throughout. A nice copy. An introduction to the western watch and its workings and - more important - western time and how to tell it. Roman numerals and the hour, minute and seconds hands are explained and a series of watch faces guide us through the rest of the intricacies of measuring time in the western style. Obviously for the pocket, this could be hauled out with the new gizmo when its fledgling owner was stumped. Or even by a non-watch owner faced with a public clock. At the end the thermometer is illustrated and explained too. This is not to say that the Japanese hadn't already mastered the clock. Since the Jesuits introduced clocks in the 16th century Japanese clockmakers had developed complex weight and spring driven mechanisms to run timekeepers according to the unequal hours of day and night, varying according to season. But in 1872 the government switched from the lunar calendar to the solar calendar and abolished traditional timekeeping and a whole nation had to start again from scratch. Makes sense to me that daylight hours are longer and night hours shorter in summer and the reverse in winter. We all know that despite what the clock says all hours are not created equal. Bring back traditional Japanese timekeeping I say.

Professionally rebacked with original backstrip laid down (some loss from edges), new end sheets. Boards lightly rubbed and soiled, pencil name and year ('R.P. Blake 1880') on front flyleaf, a number of illustrations colored with pencil by a young reader, some quite nicely done. x, [1]-224 pp. 8vo. The sequel to Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, with fifty illustrations by John Tenniel. This first American edition was released with both red and green cloth (no priority) in the same year as the Macmillan edition printed in London, and contains the same typo in the Jabberwocky's poem. Our research indicates that the U.S. edition appears less frequently both in the trade and at auction than its British equivalent. Carroll's books about Alice are among the most collected works in modern literature, and have both inspired a number of animated and live actions films (most recently those directed by Tim Burton and featuring Johnny Depp as The Mad Hatter, Helena Bonham Carter as the Red Queen, and Mia Wasikowska as Alice), as well as other adaptations.
