BATES, DAVID HOMER
Lincoln in the Telegraph Office: Recollections of the United States Military Telegraph Corps During the CIVIL War
Lincoln & London, University of Nebraska Press. 1995, FIRST THUS, FIRST PRINTING. (ISBN: 080326125X). Glossy, Glued Binding, 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Book, As the Civil War raged, President Abraham Lincoln spent many hours in the War Department's telegraph office, where he received all his telegrams. Morning, noon, and night Lincoln would visit the small office to receive the latest news from the armies at the front. The place was a refuge for the president, who waited for incoming dispatches and talked while they were being deciphered. Bates, one of the first military telegraphers, recollects those presidential visits during times of crisis. Lincoln in the Telegraph Office, originally published in 1907, shows history in the making and personalities at their most unguarded: Lincoln, Secretary of War Edwin Stanton, Andrew Carnegie, General George McClellan, and many others. The reader is with Lincoln at the scene of dramatic tidings: of the Northern disasters at Bull Run, of Meade's victory at Gettysburg, of Grant's capture of Richmond. Lincoln wrote the first draft of the Emancipation Proclamation at the telegraph office, and from there the news of his assassination was relayed. Wartime human-interest anecdotes, the wonder of the new technology, the unraveling of ciphers and codes, conspiracies and rumors, a heightened sense of onrushing events, the tragedy of Good Friday 1865 all are conveyed in this classic of Lincolniana. No marks, tight spine, very light shelf wear. 431pp. Ships in a box, no bubble mailers!. Fine.

BUTLER, LINDA (PHOTOGRAPHS & TEXT)
Rural Japan: Radiance of the Ordinary
Washington, D. C. Smithsonian Institute Press. 1991, First Edition. (ISBN: 1560981415). Paperback, 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. Book, Apparent FIRST EDITION. From Library Journal: "The rampant urban sprawl of southern Japan has not yet completely intruded upon the cold, snowy Tohoku region of the north, where most people still lead highly traditional lives. These 57 black-and-white shots capture the age-old elements of Japanese life still to be found there, although urban expansion now imperils them. Butler ( Inner Light: The Shaker Legacy , LJ 5/15/85) has gone where few foreigners venture and brought back a sharply focused volume that makes a welcome supplement to the dearth of English-language books available on modern rural Japan. Her pictures show texture and light to good effect; they provide documentary fact with a truly artistic feel. Highly recommended for Japanese and photography collections." Gift notation on front page, two scratches on front cover, light shelf wear. 51 Pages of text followed by the 57 photographs. Ships in sturdy cardboard for ultimate protection, no bubble mailers!. Very Good Plus.
