Civil War Envelope The Rebel States South Carolina (1861)
2 Civil War Envelope The Rebel States South Carolina (1861)
New York Reigles & Co. 1861 Very Good condition 
Here's an ephemera item which deserve its title -- the odds of an empty envelope hanging around for over 150 years is amazing. I have never seen one before in person, but I have seen pictures. These were printed for multiple states, but this one happens to be from South Carolina. The devil carrying the flag, the bold letters spelling The Rebel States, and the pastel color were used for all. What differentiates them is the state's particular seal in front of the devil. The envelope is closed, but there is nothing in it. It measures 3" tall by 5-1/2" wide. It will arrive in a brand new plastic sleeve.

4 Author Unknown A History of Cedar Key (Florida, 1998)
Cedar Key, Florida Cedar Key Beacon 1998 Card cover Fine condition with Bird's Eye View Laid-in 
I had one of these before, but it didn't have this wonderful laid-in bird's eye view of the area as it was in 1884. It too is in like new condition, so given that, the booklet is an especially good one. The pictorial view is neatly folded as per design, but when opened measures 11" x 16". the booklet itself measures 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and has 32 pristine pages. Text covers the history of Cedar Key; the fort at Cedar Key; fight with the Seminoles; steamboats, pencils and railroads; Cedar Key and the Civil War; the coming boom; travelers finding Cedar Key; fishing and sawmills; and the survival of a community.

13 Smith, Tomothy H. The Story of Lee's Headquarters (SIGNED)

Much new info related here which, though it doesn't clear up everything, does shine a light on both the owner of the stone house (a powerful Republican congressman from PA) and Mary Thornton, the widow who lived there. 90 pages. Indexed. A lot to read!Booklet is SIGNED by author on title page.

Camp McClellan During the Civil War (1928), Temple, Seth J.
14 Temple, Seth J. Camp McClellan During the Civil War (1928)
Davenport, Iowa The Contemporary Club 1928 soft cover Very Good condition 
This one's a bit of a plain Jane, but the focus is on information. The text is from a scholarly paper read before the Contemporary Club in Davenport, Iowa on September 22, 1927. The Contemporary Club was an all male organization the members of which read their researched papers at meetings which were then reprinted in booklet form. This one is quite thorough with 50 pages and just one small photograph. The booklet measures 6" x 9-1/4" and is very clean and tightly bound with no names or writing. Only faults are a couple tiny tears which I have repaired with tiny pieces of archival tape and a small snip at the lower front corner of the cover.

I bought these two booklets from the estate of a collector, both in the same plastic bag, which makes sense. The smaller one is all about the battlefield and the larger one is about the battlefield as a monument. The smaller one measures 6" x 8-1/4" and has 112 pages. Very handsome with many color photographs and an extensive text covering Custer's Last Battle and Little Bighorn Battlefield Today. The larger booklet measures 9" square and has 15 pages, again in color. The two compliment each other well.
