Colonel (Brevet Brigadier General) Delancy Floyd-Jones
Various European locations, 1876. Album. Good to Very Good. This "8 x 11" album contains twenty-nine used pages filled with calling cards, autographs, photographs, programs, a menu, and other ephemera. Everything is glued to the album pages. The contents are in nice shape. It appears that four leaves have been removed. The album's spine covering has perished. There is an old bookseller's description affixed inside the front cover describing its contents and titled, "The Colonel Eats Abroad" that notes the album also contained menus of steamships and hotels collected during a tour of Europe. Unfortunately all but one of the menus has been removed, the others were probably attached to the four missing leaves. Delancy Floyd-Jones was a well-regarded and influential career officer in the U. S. Army. After graduating from West Point in 1846, he served in the Mexican War, the Yakima War, and the Civil War. Twice he was recognized for gallantry and meritorious conduct in battle, first at Molino del Rey and again a Gettysburg. Following the Civil War, he command two different regiments and served at a number of posts and stations throughout the South and West. At the time he assembled this scrapbook he was the Commander of the 3rd Infantry Regiment and apparently on leave touring Europe. Scrapbook highlights include: * 115 calling cards (a few duplicated with many signed or with personal notes) from people he encountered including * John Meredith Read, a diplomat, author, founder of the Wide-Awakes (a paramilitary organization that supported Abraham Lincoln in the 1860 … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Marcy, Daniel]: [New Hampshire]
[New Hampshire, 1876. Broadside, 24 x 18 3/4 inches. Lightly creased, else very good. Archivally matted. Daniel Marcy (1809-93) was a New Hampshire sea captain and Congressman, first elected in 1863. He ran for governor in 1874, and this broadside attacks both his voting record and his integrity, accusing him of Confederate sympathies during the Civil War, a ploy known as "waving the bloody shirt," in effect accusing the opponent of murdering the sons of voters. The large broadside, which reads at the bottom, "Post this up in a conspicuous place," details Marcy's votes in Congress, which include tabling a resolution to abolish slavery; voting against punishing guerillas; voting against the appeal of the Fugitive Slave Law, and later against amending the Constitution to abolish slavery. It also includes the text of the only speech he made in Congress, which the author has labeled "Rebel Speech." Marcy was defeated by a narrow margin in the election, losing to the Republican, Person C. Cheney. A rare and interesting piece. OCLC records only one similar item at the New Hampshire Historical Society.

William Clowes and Sons, London. viii,90pp., plus twelve mounted photographs, folding map. Original blue cloth, stamp in black, gilt lettered. Light wear to cloth, front hinge a bit loose. Contemporary gift inscription on titlepage, 20th-century bookplate on front pastedown. Light tanning, occasional foxing to text; photos quite clean. A very good copy. A presentation copy of the first edition of this narrative that recounts Young's 1875 voyage to the Arctic Seas, with extracts from his journal. The privately funded voyage of the Pandora strove to navigate the Northwest Passage with hopes to gain a better understanding of the fate of the Franklin expedition.

Young also completed an investigation of Beechey Island, where he discovered the shelter erected by McClintock and the cairn set up by Sir John Ross during their own searches for Franklin. The twelve photographs included are some of the earliest taken of the region, and include the graves of Franklin's expedition on Beechey Island and views at Godhavn, among others. A rare, personal account of Young's expedition which earned him the Arctic Medal in 1876.

The American Publishing Co, Hartford, 1876. 8vo, pp. xvi, 275 + adv. (printed on wove paper). Bound in half morocco, all edges gilt. Some rubbing to the extremities and the end of the tips, some minor staining internally, lacks the front flyleaf, a very good copy.

TWAIN, Mark
The American Publishing Co, Hartford, 1876. Wood-engraved frontispiece and half title printed on separate leaves, and numerous wood engravings by True Williams and others. Lovely full blue morocco with gilt borders, spine in compartments decorated in gilt; an excellent copy. First printing, first issue, with all issue points noted. Featuring one of the best-loved characters in American fiction, we join Tom with his well-known incidents of the whitewashed fence, his love affair with Becky Thatcher, and the trial of Injun Joe, all evocative of life in the Mississippi River towns in which Twain spent his youth. A somber undercurrent is threaded through the high humor and brazen nostalgia of the story, which highlights the dichotomy of the innocence of childhood and the inequities of the realities of adulthood in this Midwestern town: base emotions and fallacies, murder and retribution, starvation and slavery. The adventures of Tom Sawyer was continually adapted for film and television. Lauded as the "Father of American Literature," Samuel Langhorne Clemens (1835-1910), better known by his most-used pen name, Mark Twain, is a hallmark of classic American literature. Known for his famous work, The adventures of Tom Sawyer and its sequel, The adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Twain is known for his radical civil rights views and often-censored subject matter. His works run the gamut from novels, to collections of letters, to humorous stories about nineteenth century steamboat culture. Also included is a "FIRST DAY OF ISSUE STAMP AND ENVELOPE, Hannibal, MO., Feb. 13, 1940, 9-am." In … [Click Below for Full Description]
