1904 1ed Civil War Songs Poems Confederate Union American Illustrated Lincoln H.M. Wharton was a private in the confederate military under Robert E. Lee, who after the war sought to preserve some of the culture of the times through song and poetry of the Civil War.

1841 Wild Sports of Southern Africa Harris 1st Big Game Hunting Book Illustrated William Cornwallis Harris was a 19th-century English explorer who is best remembered for his voyages to South Africa. In 1836, Harris ventured to South Africa where he spent nearly two years hunting antelope and following the leads of Matabele people. One of the defining traits of Harris, which differentiated him from other hunters, was that he illustrated the large African animals that he hunted, many of which were remarkably accurate for the time. The events of this expedition were published in a book entitled 'Wild Sports of Southern Africa' a work that featured Harris's own illustrations of animals and tribal people. And, while this book is fascinating in its own right, it is often considered to be the very first book written exclusive only big game hunting! This 1841 third edition is the first to include the complete collection of Harris's color plates. Item number: #6958 Price: $ 1500 HARRIS, William Cornwallis ... Read more

1810 Beethoven Mozart Haydn Pleyel Violin Classical Music Piano Trios & Sonatas An incredibly rare early 19th-century printing of well-known pieces of chamber music by some of the best at the trade – Mozart, Beethoven, and Haydn. And while the pieces themselves can be found by a number of printers and publishers throughout the years, the printing of Beethoven and Haydn is of particular note. Ignace Pleyel was a prestigious and important music publisher in the early 18th-century. However, one of the most frustrating difficulties with his music was his purposeful omission of the date. According to Rita Benton in 'Pleyel as a Music Publisher', this "led to considerable difficulties for bibliographers, cataloguers, and antiquarian dealers and any others who have to deal in some way with the music. Two elements present in a particular piece at hand may be utilized as a means of dating it: the imprint and the plate number appearing at the foot of all pages." This edition meets both of these points – having ... Read more
