From the book:THIS is the forest primeval. The murmuring pines and the hemlocks, Bearded with moss, and in garments green, indistinct in the twilight, Stand like Druids of eld, with voices sad and prophetic, Stand like harpers hoar, with beards that rest on their bosoms. Loud from its rocky caverns, the deep-voiced neighboring ocean Speaks, and in accents disconsolate answers the wail of the forest. This is the forest primeval; but where are the hearts that beneath it Leaped like the roe, when he hears in the woodland the voice of the huntsman? Where is the thatch-roofed village, the home of Acadian farmers, - Men whose lives glided on like rivers that water the woodlands, Darkened by shadows of earth, but reflecting an image of heaven? Waste are those pleasant farms, and the farmers forever departed! Scattered like dust and leaves, when the mighty blasts of October Seize them, and whirl them aloft, and sprinkle them far o'er the ocean. Naught but tradition remains of the beautiful village of Grand-Pre. Ye who believe in affection that hopes, and endures, and is patient, Ye who believe in the beauty and strength of woman's devotion, List to the mournful tradition still sung by the pines of the forest; List to a Tale of Love in Acadie, home of the happy.

Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth [United Confederate Veterans Camp John B. Gordon No. 1586 and the Clement A. Evans Chapter, No. 138 United Daughters of the Confederacy Association]

Indianapolis: Bobbs-Merrill, 1905. Hardcover. Good. Quarto. 132 pages. Color frontispiece and illustrations by Howard Chandler Christy. Red cloth illustrated hardcover with gilt stamped title on front cover and spine. Illustrated end papers. Covers are worn and faded with light soil. Corners bumped. Hinges slightly cracked. This particular copy was a wedding gift to Miss Elizabeth Elliott Lumpkin. The inscription on the front paste down reads: "Every Man and Woman Whose Autograph Appears in this Book is an Admirer, Friend, Lover of Elizabeth Elliott Lumpkin. x These names are arranged as a memento of the Veteran Re-Union at Rome, Georgia, September, 1904, and the Addresses at Brunswick, Oct. 31, 1904, with its accompanying Social Events. x The whole is presented to Miss Lumpkin on her marriage to Dr. Eugene Byron Glenn, Dec. 21, 1905, with the Love, Prayers, and best wishes of Harry Cassil, Jennie Cassil, and Leila Cassil." On the right front flyleaf is the written heading "Clement A, Evans Chapter, No 138 U.D.C. Brunswick, Georgia." 11 women from the chapter signed their names on the page. On the blank verso of the half title page is the written heading "Officers of Camp John B. Gordon, No. 1586 U.C.V. Brunswick, Georgia." Below the heading are 7 written names of Confederate veterans including their regiments and rank. Harry Cassil's name is written at the top of the list. Cassil was in the 1st Missouri Cavalry and was Captain Commander (of the U.C.V. Chapter). Cassil resided in Brunswick from 1899 until his death in 1908. A damp-stained loose illustration of the Confederate battlefield flag is laid inside the front cover. No other ephemera related to the wedding or the social events of the reunions exists. From the January 1906 issue of the Confederate Veteran: "In Trinity Episcopal Church, Columbia, S.C., on December 21, 1905, Miss Elizabeth Elliott Lumpkin, "The Daughter of the United Confederate Veterans", was married to Dr. Eugene Bryon Glenn of Asheville, N.C. The ceremony was performed by Bishop Capers who was a General in the Confederate Army..." The Confederate Veteran (uncustomary) dedicated a whole page of this issue to the wedding including a photograph of the wedding group. The bride's father was Colonel W. W. Lumpkin.

Evangeline - A Tale of Acadie

LONGFELLOW, Henry Wadsworth [1807-1882] & DIXON, Arthur A. (Arthur Augustus) (1872-1959) illustrated by

London: Ernest Nister, and in New York by E. P. Dutton & Co. Printed in Bavaria, 1907. Later edition. Hard Cover. Very Good+. Later edition. 5-1/2 x 7-1/2 inches, 6, [5]-160pp., Front cover is beautifully decorated in dark green and red floral design with beautiful gilt stamping of title and author. All page edges gilt. Decorated endpapers with overall spotting to front and back, portraying Acadians traveling from home -- endpapers bear  printed signature of A. A. Dixon. All twelve full page color plates and 40 small in-text colour Illustrations are charming and very attractive. Small B&W in-text illustrations also throughout the book. Very light rubbing to corners and spine ends with a couple of very minor spots on back cover, otherwise very good+ condition. The text of the title page reads: Evangeline: A Tale of Acadie by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. Illustrated by Arthur Dixon. 1856. British Library holds a similar copy and dates this book circa 1907 (not the printed 1856 date on the title page). Given the artist A.A. Dixon was born in 1872, clearly he did not paint these illustrations till much later that 1856 therefore the circa publication date of 1907 makes sense. In 1713, Acadia, or, as it is now named, Nova Scotia, was ceded to Great Britain by the French. Some time after, war having again broken out between the French and British in Canada, the Acadians were accused of having assisted the French, and the British Government ordered them to be removed from their homes, and dispersed throughout the other colonies, at a distance from their much loved land. The poem is descriptive of the fate of some of the persons involved in these calamitous proceedings. Arthur Augustus Dixon (British, 1872-1959), was already working as an artist by 18, and is best remembered for his dozens of illustrated books from Ernest Nister, Collins Clear-Type, and Blackie & Sons.
