rare! period shorthand instruction book of the 12th New Hampshire Hospital Steward

NOTICE

********NOW OPERATING FROM OUR NEW HEADQUARTERS ********



Now fully operational from the beautiful Pacific North West, we encourage all to keep a close eye as we unpack posted offerings and continue what will be an ongoing effort of unpacking the collection while taking stock with an eye toward thinning out our accumulation of treasures. After years of seeking out and acquiring all manner of quality antique Americana from simple but seldom surviving items of special interest to historically important treasures, Janet and I look forward to offering the fruits of our years of seeking out such to new and appreciative homes.

Published in 1856 by the Phonographic Institute; Cincinnati, Ohio, this First Edition, First Printing of Benn Pitman’s The Phonographir Reader remains in pleasing condition, complete with no loose, torn, marked up or missing pages yet with some period staining on the covers with clear evidence of age and period handling. A desirable rarity in and of itself as, not only was its author responsible for the Pitman Shorthand method as adopted in the United States, but served as the Recorder for the Lincoln Assassination Military Commission. Responsible for the recording of the trial of the conspirators, Benn Pitman compiled and arranged the trial record for publication. Pitman also served as official stenographer during the Sons of Liberty and Ku-Klux Klan and other period high profile government prosecutions. Of additional interest to the Civil War enthusiast and especially for the New Hampshire in the Civil War collector will be the book plate of T. E. HUNT – GILFORD N. H.. Thomas E. Hunt was a 25 year old, just married, resident of Gilford, New Hampshire when he enlisted and was mustered in on 8/14/1862 as a Private of Co. G of the soon to be hard fought 12th New Hampshire Infantry. Less than a month later he was designated as Regimental Hospital Steward serving the 12th New Hampshire Volunteers in that capacity until mustering out in Richmond, Virginia on June 21, 1865. Per Bartlett’s regimental history, Thomas E. Hunt, who was the brother of the 12th NH Regimental Surgeon, was present at the battles of Fredericksburg, Gettysburg, Swift Creek, Drury's Bluff, Port Walthall, Cold Harbor, and Capture of Richmond. He was Chief Steward at Point of Rocks Army General Hospital in 1864 and at Camp Lee Army Hospital at Richmond in 1865.
