Plattsburg or surrounding area, NY
1855 to 1865 or 10 years of daily or nearly daily writings in 2 large volumes measuring 8 by 13" with marbled boards, each with long, detailed entries.
A personal look at daily life in rural New York state in the years before and through the Civil War.
Somewhere in 1864 the writer (not 100% certain of name) turns 45 years old and mentions being the correct age for the "home guard". Not a lot of war content, except some mentions here and there of major political events such as Lincoln's inauguration, and the like. Many mentions of Champlain, Capt, this and that, timing horses, breeding. Overall, an interesting semi-daily account through a span of years. Andrew (daily mention of his work content). Interesting mention of horse names, timing of races, some breeding info. Possibly raised horses. Had an Aunt Louise. Extremely interesting. Not a weather, work, and more weather journal. Hundreds of pages, all full from top to bottom.
American Bible Society, New York
New Testament, 1862
Typical printing carried by soldier during Civil War, although this appears to be a civilian owned copy; faint owners name on free paper: "Esther ?? ".
Album of the Heart gold gilt on green morocco
Typical 1860 friendship book, BUT, this one was used AGAIN in the late 1960s, and includes Jeannie C Riley and Carl Perkins (Blue Suede Shoes) and a few others. Can't really sell this as a pure early Victorian album, and it is not a music collectible, so we hope someone may want to enjoy it as is, or possibly remove the better signatures. We offer no advice on this one.
Infantry Drill Regulations
United States Army
Soft cover, faded blue covers, owner's name inscribed on cover and title page, cover soiled and creased, good to very good.

Dimensions of each:

RULES AND REGULATIONS FOR THE FIELD EXERCISE AND MANOEUVRES OF INFANTRY, COMPILED AND ADAPTED TO THE ORGANIZATION OF THE ARMY OF THE UNITED STATES, AGREEABLE TO A RESOLVE OF CONGRESS, DATED DECEMBER, 1814. PUBLISHED BY ORDER OF THE WAR DEPARTMENT.
330 pages; NO atlas volume. Tight copy, well used and studied, cherished and admired. Nice contemporary copy of the 1812 regulations intended for use in the latter stages of the 1812 conflict. Even without the atlas, itís a nice piece of contemporary history for that special vignette or period collection. Readerís copy at worst. Historianís copy in reality. History loverís example of a nice price/value relationship.
