On Wednesday, April 26, 2017 at 10am, Doyle New York will hold an auction of Rare Books, Autographs & Maps. The auction showcases a diverse range of material from early illuminated manuscripts to modern first editions. Highlights feature landmark works in Americana, science, literature, including finely bound library sets, and original illustration art.

A highlight of the sale is the archive of Brevet Major General John Gross Barnard, which offers an important chronicle of the Civil War. Barnard was Chief Engineer of the Army of the Potomac responsible for the defenses of Washington, DC. This comprehensive and career-spanning archive includes hundreds of letters, maps, diaries, manuscripts, photographs and more, commencing with Barnard’s service in the Mexican War, as Superintendent of West Point, his retained papers from the Civil War, and the conclusion of his career with the Army Corp of Engineers in 1881.

A 1778 Paris printing of the Declaration of Independence, the Articles of Confederation, and several state constitutions is one of the earliest collected of these editions, published during the height of the American Revolution. There was much interest in the language of these documents by the French, our earliest ally. This book also prints a letter to Benjamin Franklin, the American ambassador in Paris during the war (est. $500-800).
