        THE TRUMPET MAJOR (Believed to be the Only Known Inscribed Presentation Copy of Hardy's Famous Napoleonic Novel)

      London: Sampson Low, Marston, Searle & Rivington, 1881. Hardy, Thomas. THE TRUMPET MAJOR. A Tale. London: Sampson Low, Marston, Searle & Rivington, 1881. 8vo. First One-Volume edition in the original publisher's red cloth, blocked in black and lettered in gilt. 32-page catalogue at rear. Very Good, cloth a little soiled and worn. PRESENTATION COPY inscribed on the verso of the front-free endpaper: "Miss Tindal Atkinson/ from/ T. Hardy." The recipient was the daughter of Hardy's good friend Henry Tindal Atkinson (1818-1890). Hardy met "Serjeant" Atkinson and his daughter in 1880 or 1881 when they became neighbors. As recorded by Hardy in the Life (155): "Though they had expected to be lonely in Wimborne after London, they […] had a genial neighbor in the county judge Tindal-Atkinson, one of the last "Serjeants-At-Law," who took care they should not mope if dinners and his and his daughter's music could prevent it." Indeed Hardy fondly referred to Atkinson as "My Dear Serjeant" in the holograph note to Atkinson from Hardy found tipped into this volume on his Max Gate stationery, dated August 21, 1885. This charming letter refers to Atkinson's "dignified" cane which was left at Max Gate and which Hardy is happy to personally return. This appears to be the only known presentation copy of Hardy's great Napoleonic novel THE TRUMPET MAJOR, his best-selling and most popular early work, first published in 1880 in an edition of 1,000 copies. There are no presentation copies of the first edition recorded in Richard Purdy's Thomas Hardy bibliography, and none appeared at the sale of the greatest collection of Thomas Hardy's first editions and manuscripts, that belonging to Frederick Baldwin Adams, Jr. (Sotheby's New York, 2001). Nor can an inscribed copy be found in the extensive Hardy collections of Carroll Atwood Wilson, Michael Sadleir, Morris Parrish, Howard Bliss, David Magee, or Robert Lee Wolff. Auction records and institutional search likewise find no other copy presented by the author, first edition or indeed later editions. Three-volume first editions of THE TRUMPET-MAJOR continue to be highly desirable but easily acquired. Ours is a black tulip, one-of-a-kind, a copy personally presented to the daughter of a man whom Hardy called friend and neighbor. Purdy (p. 35). In a vintage morocco clamshell case.. Inscribed By Author. First Edition. Decorative Cloth. Very Good.

        GREAT OYSTER EATING MATCH BETWEEN THE DARK TOWN CORMORANT AND THE BLACKVILLE BUSTE’ ‘The Start - Now den dont you’s be too fresh. wait for de word’ and ‘The Finish - Yous is a tie - De one dat gags fust. am a gone Coon’.

      Currier & Ives in New York 1881 - A pair of full coloured lithographs from the ‘Darktown’ series depicting coloured folk in rather cruel or ridiculous situations. Excellent condition. 24 x 33 cm each. (Priced as a pair - £595.00) "Creating a segregated community of black Americans, Darktown prints showcased a full array of negative stereotypes of former slaves who moved north after the Civil War. Portrayed as mentally slow, physically grotesque, and morally inept, African Americans became comical figures to the primarily white consumers of Currier and Ives prints. True to the period's nativist overtones, the Darktown series was accompanied by similar prints lampooning Irish and Italian immigrants, as well as Roman Catholics. Popular prints were made to satisfy popular demand; as such, this series bears a painfully vivid testament to the racial attitudes of white, middle-class Americans of the late nineteenth century. "

        PRIVATE JOURNAL OF EDWARD PAUL DUFFY, PRINTER, U.S. FLAGSHIP TRENTON, EUROPEAN SQUADRON, BEGINNING IN MARSEILLE, FRANCE [manuscript title]

      [At sea, primarily in the Mediterranean], 1881. Quarto. Contemporary three-quarter calf and paper boards. Spine nonexistent at foot. Calf significantly rubbed, missing in most places. Boards rubbed, loose. Text clean, brittle, but loosely bound; some pages loose. Text in good condition. In a cloth clamshell case, leather label. Edward Paul Duffy was a soldier and printer aboard the U.S.S. Trenton. During his time on board, Duffy printed the TRENTON HERALD, a twice monthly newspaper. Newspaper clippings pasted to the front board of his journal portray Duffy as the pioneer of American amphibious printing and estimate his readership to number one thousand. Duffy also served as a correspondent to the BALTIMORE SUN, writing of the activities of the European Squadron and his experiences in various Mediterranean cities. Clippings of his articles from the BALTIMORE SUN are tipped in, as well as some pieces of his shipboard printing, INSPECTION OF POWDER DIVISION and COMPARATIVE STATEMENT OF TIMES OF EVOLUTIONS DURING INSPECTION OF EUROPEAN SQUADRON. Duffy's journal records the daily weather, activities aboard the Trenton, and his trips off the ship in cities such as Madeira and Villefranche. He frequently notes his press and letters or activities related to it, such as the printing of a program for the Snowflakes, which performed before Christmas of 1880, and subscriptions made to his paper by prominent Americans such as capitalist J.W. Mackay. The Trenton sailed home for the centennial celebration of the victory at Yorktown, but Duffy was honorably discharged after two years of service and discontinued his journal upon reaching the Chesapeake Bay. A wonderful record of shipboard printing in the American Navy.

        Album of twenty four original photographs of the Alhambra, Spain.

      c. 1881 - Oblong 4to. (25 x 33 cm.). 24 albumen prints (each c.19 x 25 cm) mounted back to front on 12 card leaves, fourteen with ms. captions. The end-papers, front and back, decorated with a pencil and wash distant panoramic sketch "View of the Alhambra from the Moor's Seat" dated "Nov.2nd 1881". Original red cloth covered boards. Binding soiled and rubbed at extremities, the first photograph a little faded and spotted, the remainder of the photographs in generally very good condition and exhibiting good rich tones. No sign of authorship, but the sketch is of very good quality, the photographs of very good professional standard and the captions in English. The Alhambra, built for the last Muslim emirs in Spain, is a palace and fortress complex located in Granada, Andalusia. Originally constructed as a small fortress in 889, it was rebuilt and renovated in the mid-13th century by Mohammed ben Al-Ahmar, the first king of the Nasrid dynasty which became the last Islamic sultanate on the Iberian Peninsula. The complex was designated a royal palace in 1333 under Yusuf I, Sultan of Granada. After centuries of disrepair, it was rediscovered in the 19th century by European scholars and travellers. The early photographs in this album therefore depict the Alhambra shortly after its rediscovery. Included are photographs of many of its major buildings, including the Hall of the Ambassadors, the Court of the Lions and fountain, and the Generalife. Inscribed in pencil on the front end-paper by the compiler of the album is the following: "The Alhambra/ The principal building was commenced by Hon-l-ahmar in 1248/ He everywhere introduces his motto: Wa la ghalib illa Al-lah/ ("There is no conqueror but God")" [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. ("Murad").

      Stockholm, 6. I. 1881. - 4 SS. auf gefalt. Doppelblatt. Kl.-8vo. Beiliegend eh. adressierter Umschlag. In seinem Todesjahr, an den Mediziner (und Verfasser von Beethoven-Erinnerungen) Gerhard von Breuning (1813-92): "Werter Freund! Vielen Dank für Ihre freundlichen Zeilen die mir große Freude bereitet haben; sind sie mir doch ein greifbares Zeichen Ihrer unverändert freundschaftlichen Gesinnung für mich. Und mit meinen herzlichen Neujahrswünschen für Sie und die liebenswürdigen Ihrigen mein herzliches Vivat - oder vielmehr vivant crescant - dem Großpapa u. den Eltern des zukünftigen - wie soll ich nur sagen, nun, Steuerzalers [!] Georg. Was Sie in betreff meines teueren Edhem Paschas sagen, befriedigt mich sehr; leider scheine ich in seinem Gedächtnis sehr verblaßt zu sein; seine Korrespondenztauben verraten seit einigem etwas lahme Schwingen. Nun, Gebot der Zeit und naturgemäßer Lauf der Dinge! Meiner Frau hat die Operation nur ganz momentan geholfen, Sie wissen wie kezerisch ich über die Fakultät - ne vous en déplaise - urteile. Sanat non curat bleibt mein Axiom. Wer nicht an der Krankheit zu Grunde zu gehen Zeit hat, erliegt der Kur. Ich erfahre das an mir, obschon ich des Beweises nicht bedurft hätte - den Bösen bin ich scheinbar los, die Bösen sind in Wirklichkeit geblieben. Schade daß mir hier kein lateinisches Citat einfällt um damit zu flunkern u. zu imponiren. Pegasus frißt im Stall das Gnadenbrot, ich werde alt [.]". - Der zum Islam konvertierte österreichische Schriftsteller und Diplomat in osmanischen Diensten Franz von Werner publizierte unter dem Namen "Murad Efendi" Dramen und Gedichtsammlungen wie auch landeskundliche Berichte aus der Türkei. 1877 war er zum Ministerresidenten an den Höfen von Den Haag und von Stockholm ernannt worden, 1880 zum dortigen bevollmächtigten Minister und außerordentlichen Gesandten.

        L'Encéphale. Journal des maladies mentales et nerveuses

      1881 - 8 volumes in-8, 42 (sur 43) Paris, G. Masson [puis J.-B. Baillière], 1881-1888, , 8 volumes in-8, 42 (sur 43) planches, dont quelques unes en couleurs et plusieurs comprenant des photographies originales, demi-basane bleu-vert de l'époque, dos lisses et fileté, Collection quasi complète, d'une insigne rareté, de la revue l'Encéphale, publiée de 1881 à 1889. Elle contient de nombreux articles originaux, notamment de ses fondateurs Luys (1828-1897) et Ball (1833-1893). Sans l’année 1889. Lacunes au tome III (année 1883) : sans les pages 337 à 352 et la planche numéroté 3. Ce journal se caractérise, selon ses rédacteurs, par son impartialité, son esprit pratique et son scepticisme ; « nous n'entendons point par-là cette ironie banale qui s'attaque sans distinction à toutes les idées nouvelles ; nous voulons parler de cette vertu négative qui constitue l'un des traits les plus élevés de l'esprit scientifique, et qui nous apprend à ne jamais accepter un fait sans le contrôler, une idée sans la discuter, une hypothèse sans lui demander ses preuves ». L’Encéphale comprend de nombreuses planches, dont plusieurs donnent des clichés photographiques tirés en photoglyptie, certains publiés ici pour la première fois, à l’instar des célèbres photographies d’Esther et de Gabrielle, patientes sur lesquelles Luys expérimenta les effets de l’hypnose sous diverses substances, et qui sont l'objet de l'article célèbre, « Les émotions dans l'état d'hypnotisme », qui parait en librairie peu de temps après. La publication de l'Encéphale se ressent, à partir de ces années, du nouvel état d'esprit de Luys, qui vient d'être nommé médecin-chef à la Charité et qui y fonde sa propre école de recherches sur l'hystérie, inspirée de celle de Charcot à la Salpêtrière, et se lance sans discernement dans des expériences parfois douteuses sur le plan de la rigueur scientifique, expériences auxquelles assiste l'occultiste Gérard d'Encausse, dit Papus. Si l'Encéphale n'est pas encore l'"organe" de ces expériences de la Charité, elle n'en délivre pas moins pour la première fois à la société savante ces "égarements", qui s'exprimeront pleinement dans la brève "Revue d'hypnologie" que dirige Luys, après la cessation de l'Encéphale, en 1890. Contributions, outre de Ball et Luys, de Boyé, E. Régis, J. Giraud, Fusier, Boucheron, Chambard, Marandon de Montyel, Sicard, G. Pichon, etc. Défaut habituel de pagination pour l'année 1882 ; après la page 696, la numérotation reprend à 997. Quelques surcharges au crayon bleu. Dos insolés.

        The Formation of Vegetable Mould through the Action of Worms with observations on their habits

      London : John Murray, 1881 A very good copy of the 1st edition, 5th thousand (corrected) in the original green decorative cloth binding. This was Darwin's last published work, and is the product of meticulous observation of the way that earthworms behave and their contribution to soil development. The binding is bright and clean. There is a little ripple and a very small pale mark to the spine, which has pulling to the top and bottom. There is light wear to the corners and very slight wear to the cloth at the joints. The original endpapers are present. There is an ownership signature of Henry Kemp Welch to the preliminary blank leaf. With title page, contents listing, text with engravings 313pp, index pp 315-326, and 1 page listing of Darwin's works to the rear. There is light toning to page margins - particularly at the top, and the occasional page edge has been turned over at some point - noticeable at p220-238 where there are 2 very minute edge tears as a result. There is slight splitting beginning in the rear endpaper at the joint but the book is sound. A nice copy.

        Eigenhändiger Brief mit Unterschrift. Datiert 14. Januar 51. 2 Seiten mit Bleistift.

      0 - An seinen Freund Hans Jantzen (Kunsthistoriker 1881-1967): " Wir beide waren sehr bestürzt und traurig, als wir durch Ihre Assistentin von dem Unglücksfall hörten. . nur daß das Gespräch, auf das ich mich besonders freute, so vertagt blieb, sondern daß Sie jetzt diese wenig schöne Sache traf. Wir hoffen von ganzen Herzen, daß die Heilung einfach verläuft, denn freilich ist die erzwungene Muße herrlich u. ein Geschenk der Sammlung. Daß es ganz so werde, wünschen wir beide für Sie von Herzen. Wir grüßen Sie und Ihre liebe Frau in herzlichen Gedenken an gemeinsame Jahre und Stunden. Ich vertraue darauf, daß uns künftig noch Zeiten gemeinsamen Gespräch geschenkt werden. Zunächst aber freue ich mich sehr auf Ihre Briefe über die Nähe. In dem, was Sie berührten, ist ein ganzer Schatz wesentlicher Fragen verborgen, die das Geschick der Kunst u. unsere Bestimmung damit angehen.

        Chaucers Canterbury Pilgrims Painted in Fresco by William Blake & by him Engraved & Published October 8 1810

      Impression measures 93. [London: Colnaghi printing, after 5 March 1881]. Impression measures 93.9 x 30 cm., printed on laid India paper; recently cleaned and matted. Final state: it is worth noting that the only difference between the so-called fourth and fifth states is the absence of the scratched dry-point inscriptions clearly visible in a few prints, and less and less visible until completely absent by the time Sessler was printing the plate. Instead of ?states? the more accurate definitions might be very early to very late 4th state, and in that scheme then this print would be well after the early impressions with some or most of the scratched inscriptions visible, but before the Sessler printings of the 1940s. ??Chaucers Canterbury Pilgrims? was one of Blake?s major attempts at building a reputation as a painter-engraver and achieving the sort of critical and financial success that had escaped him for so many years....? However, Blake wasn?t to meet with the critical success he had hoped for and the competition created when Thomas Stothard executed a plate of the same subject, caused him to become bitter. ?Most contemporary connoisseurs probably found the print old-fashioned and ?Gothic? in the pejorative sense.... The record of prices brought by the print at auction indicates that it has attracted strong interest from collectors only in the last few years? (Essick, pp. 86-88). Blake made substantial changes in the fourth and fifth states of this famous plate and ?it is only in the last two states of the plate that we find Blake?s mature artistry as an original printmaker, bringing to his largest and most ambitious single print the same techniques distinguishing his Job and Dante engravings.? Essick, Separate Plates of William Blake, XVI, and see William Blake, Printmaker.

Collation: iii-xii, [1]-318, [4-Index], [4-Cat.] pp. + 15 chromolithograph plates with tissue guards and 40 figures in text. Lacking half title. This is issue A on thick paper with addition of 15 plates of roses. The Appendix, 'The Botany of the Rose' is by Thomas Moore; 'The Entomology of the Rose' is by Arthur William Paul and 'On New Roses' is by the author, listing 40 varieties for year 1880-81. The text and plates are free of marks or foxing. A few leaves have minor repair to tears at head near gutter. William Paul (1822&1905), horticulturist, was born at Churchgate, Cheshunt, Hertfordshire He was educated at Waltham Cross before joining his father's (nursery) business. Following his father's death he and his elder brother, George, continued the business as A. Paul & Son. In 1860 this partnership was dissolved and Paul concentrated on the Waltham Cross nursery, William Paul & Son, which he had founded in 1859. Paul wrote articles for John C. Loudon and John Lindley. Paul's book, The Rose Garden (1848), was also immensely popular, reaching a tenth edition by 1903 and being reprinted as late as 1978. It is a practical treatise to which Paul's wide reading gave a literary character. Coloured illustrations initially made the book expensive; later editions were issued in two forms, with and without these plates.In July 1858 he joined the newly founded National Rose Society, and in 1866 he was one of the executive committee of twenty-one members for the great International Horticultural Exhibition. He also acted as a commissioner for the Paris Exhibition of 1867. He was elected a fellow of the Linnean Society in 1875, and received the Victoria medal of horticulture when it was first instituted in 1897. Although best known as a rosarian, Paul also devoted attention to the improvement of other types of plants, such as hollyhocks, asters, hyacinths, phloxes, camellias, zonal pelargoniums, hollies, ivies, shrubs, fruit trees, and Brussels sprouts.

        SION: RHONETHAL BEI SION. ÚDOLÍ RODANSKÉ U SEDUNU. DEN MITGLIEDERN DES KUNSTVEREINS FÜR BÖHMEN IN PRAG IM JAHR 1881. BERLIN/ PRAG, 1881.

      - Schöne Ansicht des Rhonetals bei Sion in der Schweiz basierend auf einer Vorlage des bekannten Landschaftsmalers Johann Gottfried Steffan (1815-1905). Das Blatt ist eine Jahresgabe für die Mitglieder des Kunstvereins für Böhmen in Prag aus dem Jahr 1881. Die Legende ist zweisprachig deutsch und tschechisch (Rhonethal bei Sion/ Údulí Rodanské u Sedunu). Bei Jahresgaben handelt es sich um limitierte Auflagenarbeiten internationaler Künstler, die exklusiv für Mitglieder des Kunstvereins angeboten wurden. Das hier vorliegende Motiv basiert auf einer Vorlage von Johann Gottfried Steffan (1815-1905), einem der bedeutendsten Landschaftsmaler des 19. Jahrhunderts. Steffan lebte und arbeitete ab 1833 in München. Er besuchte die dortige Akademie der bildenden Künste unter Peter von Cornelius. Unter dem Einfluss von Carl Rottmann wandte er sich der realistischen Landschaftsmalerei zu. Steffans Atelier wurde zum Mittelpunkt der Schweizer Künstler in München. In seinem Atelier arbeitete unter anderem Arnold Böcklin. Steffans Bilder, meist Gebirgsdarstellungen, sind idealisierte Landschaften der Münchner Schule. Auch der Fokus der vorliegenden Darstellung des Rhonetales liegt auf den Gebirgserhebungen bei Sion (dt. Sitten), dem Hauptort des Kantons Wallis in der Schweiz an der Mündung der Sionne in die Rhone. Der Blick wird entlang des Flusslaufes in die Bildtiefe, vorbei an weidenden Zügen und einer das Tal überspannenden Brücke, in den Hintergrund geführt. Dort erheben sich zwei hoch aufragende Felsen, die sich im Osten und Nordosten über der Stadt erheben. Auf den Felsen thronen die Festungsruine Tourbillon und die Basilika von Valeria. Das Schloss Tourbillon wurde Ende des 13. Jahrhunderts von Bischof Bonifatius Challant erbaut und 1788 bei einem Stadtbrand zerstört.

        [MANUSCRIPT ARCHIVE OF UNION CAPTAIN JAMES COOKE, Co. "F," 52nd PENNSYLVANIA INFANTRY, RELATING TO THE BATTLES OF WILLIAMSBURG AND SEVEN PINES]

      [Various locations], 1881. An interesting archive, including a manuscript battle map, three letters, and various documents relating to Capt. James Cooke's experiences in the Civil War. Cooke mustered in on Sep. 5, 1861 and eventually served as captain in Co. "F," 52nd Regiment Pennsylvania Volunteers. He served at several battles, most notably the Battle of Seven Pines in Virginia, then resigned on Oct. 21, 1863. The individual items included in the archive are as follows: 1) Manuscript Map of the Seven Pines Battlefield, measuring 15.75" x 12.5", showing the area around Fair Oaks Station. A wonderful, hand-drawn map by Cooke. He has designated the positions of both the 52nd and 104th Pennsylvania Infantries, marking places such as "Fight commenced here," "Fighting all through here," "52 [Pennsylvania] in line of Battle," and "the way the Rebs came." Cooke also marks topographical details such as roads, a railroad track, woods, and the Chickahominy River. Some fold separations, with minor loss of paper, noticeable stain in the middle of the map straddling the vertical fold. Cooke has written a short explanatory note, initialed by him, on the verso to the same recipient as the following letter. 2) Autograph letter, signed. Camp Near Bottoms Ridge. June 18, 1862. To "Dear Friend Joe." A fantastic, sixteen page letter with details regarding the Battles of Williamsburg and Seven Pines. The Union army had laid siege to Yorktown, Virginia, from April 5, 1862, until Confederate forces silently withdrew in the night hours of May 3. Cooke was there as Federal troops entered the town the following morning, and described the scene: "We went through the woods cautiously with our skirmishers in advance but we could see no signs of life in any of the Forts and our men went along without any opposition...we had no idea that it was a general evacuation of the whole place...." The rebels, however, had not left the place totally unguarded: "I was just agoing [sic] when I heard a stunning report behind me...and the men in my company falling down.... I supposed right away that it was a masked battery on the opposite side of the road.... I then went to the rear of the company and found...a deep hole in the ground showing it was one of those infernal machines [near Williamsburg, Virginia, the first known use of modern land mines] that the Black Hearted Traitors planted all along the roads leading to Williamsburg." The next day, May 5, Cooke and his men find themselves held in reserve near the fighting at the Battle of Williamsburg. They advanced and "as we were going up I could hear the roar of the musketry and the yells of the boys when they made the charge." The men of the 52nd never joined the fight as when they reached the field, "the fight was over for that day and...as the rebels still occupied a large fort we would go at them in the morning.." Two days after arriving at Williamsburg, they "struck out for Richmond" and reached the Chickahominy River on May 19, meeting some light resistance along the way: "Our men...drove the pickets of the enemy...and skirmished up to the bank of the river in the face of a severe fire of infantry and artillery by the Rebs." On Saturday, May 31, they "took the advance toward Richmond...[and] uncovered the enemy in force in front of us." The Battle of Seven Pines was about to commence. Cooke writes about it in great detail: "Skirmishers from the 52nd...were sent out and soon drew the fire of the enemy's pickets and...a battery that was hid behind a woods. The 104th [Pennsylvania Infantry] was sent forward on our left...and we were ordered to advance along the road...the balls went howling over our heads like something mad. This being the first time many of the boys had heard a ball scream...it made a good many look white...but not a man flinched." The men advanced over the hill, "the Rebels...gave us the full benefit of three or four guns.... We filed off to the right...to get out of range but they followed us with their shots which fell all around us...." After assuming line of battle, the men "marched directly toward the rebel guns...." Help arrived when "One of our batteries...came up and commenced answering the speeches that had been made on the other side. It soon silenced their guns." They experienced very little action after that and two days later, June 2, they "took possession of the railroad at Fair Oaks Station...." He does add that he "was not with my Regt in the fight nor did I see any of our Brigade in the fight [Cooke had been separated and used as a skirmisher] as where they were fighting was at the real seven pines and...I was at Fair Oaks a half mile to the right...." He concludes by giving an account of the 52nd's action during the battle as he knows it. Mailing folds, some separations, minor spotting. Includes a full typed transcription. 3) Autograph letter, signed. Virginia Fairfax Seminary. Aug. 20, 1861. To "Dear Brother." A friendly letter to his brother, with some military content. Cooke writes that he is currently "quartered about 2 1/2 miles from Alexandria" near the house where Gen. Kearney is headquartered. The Virginia Seminary where he is staying was abandoned after the Union troops took Alexandria, according to Cooke. He then relates information about working the picket lines "about 2 miles from the camp then Rebel Scouts came down some days inside our pickets," a potential court martial of one of the Union colonels related to Cooke's division, and news that Cooke expects "another battle in about two weeks but there can be nothing definite about it there is any quantity of reports about but if they the government are only prepared for it the sooner it comes the better as I would like to see the thing ended and not be kept in suspense." Usual mailing folds. Very good. Includes a full typed transcription. 4) Autograph letter, signed. Camp Dodge. Dec. 14, [1862?]. To "Dear Sister." Another cordial letter home, this one to his sister. Cooke writes that he is well, having gotten over a "light touch of Intermitent Fever." He send $10 from a fellow soldier for his sister to give to the soldier's wife. Cooke spends the last portion of the letter writing about army pay. Usual mailing folds. Very good. Includes a full typed transcription. 5) Retained copy of a Return of Ordnance Form for Company "F," 52nd Pennsylvania Regiment, for the quarter ending December 31, 1862 [mismarked 1863]. 6) Fair Copy of Special Orders, No. 149, May 18, 1862, regarding the sick and surplus arms and baggage. 7) Military Appointment for Cooke as captain of Co. "F," November 5, 1862. Fold separations. 8) Passaic Falls Manufacturing Company Stock Certificate, May 30, 1866. 9) James Cooke's Passport, January 10, 1881, giving a detailed physical description of Cooke. A wonderful archive relating a Pennsylvania captain's experiences during the Civil War, most notable for the manuscript map of the Seven Pines battlefield and an enthralling letter to a friend regarding battle experiences.
