Printed 1865:  One Of The Rarest Civil War Titles- Unknown To Most Collectors


PRINTED 1865: ONE OF THE RAREST CIVIL WAR TITLES- UNKNOWN TO THE MAJOR BIBLIOGRAPHIES AND MOST CIVIL WAR COLLECTORS
OBLONG FOLIO IN ORIGINAL BOARDS
30 LITHOGRAPHIC PLATES by Maclure, Macdonald and McGregor, photographers and lithographers to the Queen

The Book:

[Kennard, Edward; and Moseley, Edward]. Transatlantic sketches; or, Sixty days in America. London, S. Low, Son & Co., 1865. COMPLETE. 2 p. l., [5]-34 l. OBLONG FOLIO. 27.5 x 38 cm. Added title page engraved plus 30 unnumbered lithographic plates by Maclure, Macdonald and McGregor, photographers and lithographers to the Queen. Original boards with lithographic print, lightly scratched and soiling, including lower rt. corner (but one of the best copies of this delicate book), slight wrinkling to original cloth spine, some inner detachment from textblock in front and rear , some creasing to t.p. with pencil owner's inscription and light soiling, occasional minor creasing, foxing, or soiling throughout. Generally a very good copy of ONE OF THE RAREST CIVIL WAR TITLES with lithographic plates that offer a remarkable and evocative glimpse of the Civil War lifefrom an English perspective.

This is an extremely rare and unusual Civil War Title, absent from most major bibliographies including Sabin, Howes, and E. Merton Coulter's Travels in the Confederate States. The work presents a very unusual English view of American life in the waning days of the Civil War.Setting off from London and proceeding Westward Ho!, the lithographs depict charming scenesfrom a very fashionable "Bread and Butter Party" on 5th Ave. to a dance school, a glimpse of the injured in Northern Hospitals, a scene in the trenches, the "Darkies in Church", the remains ofPetersburg and the rebel capital Richmond (just days after the cities have fallen). There is also a remarkable description of a dinner with Lincoln a week before the Assassination, the party exclaiming that they had shaken hands with "Caesar" and that Honest Abe graciously received there compliments. Finally, as can be imagined, there is also Lincoln's assassination and the New York funeral procession.
