About this Item: Known as "Buck," the second son of General and President U.S. Grant also rose through the ranks to became a general in the U.S. Army, but he made his mark as an attorney; the Grant & Ward brokerage firm he founded with a partner lost all his and his father's money, but he became wealthy in California real estate. Bold signature in black ink, clipped 3¼" X 1", n.p., n.y. Very good. Grant signs boldly on a printed line, below which is the printed word "Secretary" -- likely clipped from a financial document.

About this Item: Balch Publishing Company, Athens, Pennsylvania, 1939. Hardcover. Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. Robert S. Robison (illustrator). 1st Edition. Stated: 'First Edition Published in November 1939.' Once listed this will be the Only signed copy for sale on the Internet. The book is flat-signed on the first front end paper. The author was no fan of the New Deal, calling it, in the Preface, a 'strange political crusade.' The Introduction is short: ' In England, as the records show; Two centuries and a half ago; A satire, "Hudibras", so named; Was written by a bard, far famed. The poet exercised his wits; On bigots, fakes and hypocrites; And, as we read these lines, we say, "A 'Hudibras' we have today." I won't attempt verse. The covers look terrific. Very clean, very good edges and corners. The top page edge is red. Both end papers are toned or darkened on the halves where the dust jacket flap lay against them. The book is square and very solidly bound from cover to cover with nicely tight pages and nicely tight covers. The pages are very clean. I'm not seeing any creasing. There are no markings. No attachments. And with the exception of the author's signature, no one has written their name or anything else anywhere. The illustrations are all in excellent shape. The jacket looks very good as well. There is a small loss on the front side of the spine, top and bottom. The rear cover has mild handling soiling. The flaps look very good. Each one has a very thin strip of toning or dust staining at its top edge. They are otherwise very clean. I don't see any wear. The jacket is NOT price-clipped, not clipped at all. The price, in any event, is 3/4's of the way down the rear flap. I've always had the jacket in a fitted protective cover. Signed by Author(s). Seller Inventory # 003781

About this Item: President Grant's namesake grandson, child of his eldest son Frederick; ironically, he too was a West Point graduate and rose through the ranks until he achieved major general; also ironically, just as his grandfather died shortly after completing his "Memoirs" and never saw the finished product, so too did Grant 3rd die shortly after completing a biography of his grandfather. DS, 1p, 7 3/4" X 3", Washington, DC, 1906 May 15. Check on pale pink stock drawn on The Riggs National Bank, with handsome engraving of that institution at left. Made out to "Adjutant, 2d Batt. Engrs" in the amount of $26.31 in one hand and then signed by Max C. Tyler (1880-1974, West Point 1903 graduate, worked his way up to major general with the Corps of Engineers). Near fine. Usual cancellation marks. On the verso, Grant boldly pens in brown ink "Pay to order of / Julian L. Schley / U.S. Grant 3rd." Below this, Schley pens: "1st Lieut. Eng'rs and / Adjutant 2d Batt. / Julian L. Schley." (Schley, 1880-1965, a fellow 1903 West Point graduate and Corps of Engineer career officer, was appointed Governor of the Panama Canal Zone in 1932, serving until 1941.) And lastly, below this the check is also boldly endorsed by Mark Brooke (1903 West Point graduate, second lieutenant with the Corps of Engineers, in 1904 assigned to take transfer and begin construction of the Panama Canal for the U.S. Government). Though "Band Mess" is inked at lower left of this check by the secretary who filled in the recipient and amount, its purpose and the reason for three endorsements is not clear. Intriguing and attractive item from quite early in Grant's career, in any case. Seller Inventory # 33215

About this Item: Southern Illinois University Press, United States, 2005. Hardback. Condition: New. 3rd Revised edition. Language: English. Brand new Book. In his eighth and final annual message to Congress, Ulysses S. Grant reminded the nation that it was his fortune or misfortune, to be called to the office of Chief Executive without any previous political training? The electoral crisis that dominated Grant's last months in office left little room for political error. On November 7, 1876, Democrat Samuel J. Tilden won the popular vote, but Republican Rutherford B. Hayes would claim the presidency by a single electoral vote if he captured all disputed electors from Florida, Louisiana South Carolina, and Oregon. Uncertainty gave way to deadlock as the crisis deepened. Grant's mail included a steady trickle of anonymous threats. In late January 1877, Grant signed a bill creating an electoral commission to end the dispute. Hayes won all disputed electors and succeeded Grant without incident. Out of the White House, without a settled home, the Grants spent two months visiting family and friends before embarking on their long-planned European tour. On May 17, Grant left Philadelphia aboard the steamer Indiana. When he arrived at Liverpool, crowds thronged the docks and streets to give him a hero's welcome, and Londoners welcomed Grant with similar enthusiasm. In July, the Grants crossed to Belgium, traveled through Germany, and summered in the Swiss Alps and the lakes of northern Italy. Back in Great Britain, they toured Scotland and northern England, then visited daughter Ellen Grant Sartoris at Warsash, the Sartoris country home near Southampton. Grant spent November in Paris, later writing "no American would stay in Paris if he found himself the only one of his countrymen there." The Grants wintered in the Mediterranean, sailing down the Italian coast to Sicily, where they spent Christmas, then to Alexandria, and a long trip up the Nile. The party toured the Holy Land, visited Constantinople and Athens, and spent a month in Italy. After another month in Paris, the Grants were off to Holland, Germany, Scandinavia, Russia, Austria, and Switzerland, exploring the Alps again before returning to Paris in September, 1878, to ponder their next move. Abroad and out of office, Grant freely talked about the war and his presidency. Several interviews stirred controversy in America and stoked talk of a third term in 1880, despite Grant's own protestation: "I never wanted to get out of a place as much as I did to get out of the Presidency." The Grants had seen Europe. Now they faced a choice between home and a journey to distant Asia. Seller Inventory # BTE9780809326327

About this Item: Southern Illinois University Press, United States, 2003. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Ulysses S. Grant faced numerous political challenges during 1874. In the south, the Republican party steadily receded from power. As the year opened, Grant conceded Texas to the Democrats, counseling the recently defeated Republican governor to "yield to the verdict of the people as expressed by their ballots." Throughout the spring, Grant monitored an explosive situation in Arkansas, where rival governors set up contending governments. And in Louisiana, the emergence of the White League led to a pitched battle on the streets of New Orleans. All over the south, what Grant called "atrocities" led blacks to petition him, as did a group in Louisiana: "Give us peace or give a Territory to ourselves Mr. President." The nation also reeled from the aftermath of a financial panic. A bill generally considered inflationary passed Congress in April. Indecisive, Grant prepared two messages on the bill. In the first, never sent, he gave grudging approval. His ringing veto sent Congress back to work: "I am not a believer in any artificial method of making paper money equal to coin when the coin is not owned or held ready to redeem the promises to pay." In June, Grant signed a compromise bill that eased inflation fears. Appointments continued to cause turmoil. He selected the largely unknown Ohio lawyer Morrison R. Waite for chief justice after a revelation from Caleb Cushing's past undermined his first nomination. Unable to persuade Elihu B. Washburne to replace an overwhelmed William A. Richardson as secretary of the treasury, Grant nominated another second choice, Benjamin H. Bristow. A frequently slighted Secretary of State Hamilton Fish stayed in the cabinet only after Grant's special pleading. Despite these difficulties, many discussed a third term for Grant, who remained discreetly silent on the issue. In October, Grant made his first visit to Indian Territory, where he saw "on every side evidence of prosperity." As he toured, troops completed a four-month campaign against Comanche, Kiowa, and Cheyenne raiders on the southern plains. Further north, Lieutenant Colonel George A. Custer led a party to survey the Black Hills, sacred to the Sioux. Ostensibly scouting sites for military posts, the expedition discovered gold, and the arrival of prospectors by year's end threatened peace in that region. Family and friends had always eased Grant's burdens, but in 1874 the White House seemed a gloomier place after daughter Ellen (Nellie) married in May and left for a new life with her husband in England. Less distressing was the October wedding of eldest son Frederick, who married into an American family. The year closed with Grant quite conscious of public and private uncertainties looming in his future. Seller Inventory # BTE9780809324989

About this Item: Not only were these grandsons named after their famous grandfathers, but each achieved some renown in his own right and each wrote a book about his namesake ("Ulysses S. Grant: Warrior and Statesmen" in 1969 and "John C. Pemberton: Defender of Vicksburg" in 1942); Grant, the son of General Grant's eldest son Frederick, attained the same rank as his grandfather (general in the U.S. Army) and served with distinction in both World Wars. Three items: First, from Grant is a TLS, 1p, 6½" X 10¼", Clinton, NY, 12 January 1963. Addressed to noted Lincoln/Civil War scholar Arnold F. Gates (1914-93). Near fine. On imprinted letterhead, Grant thanks this officer of the New York Civil War Round Table "for my complimentary membership card in the N.Y. Civil War Round Table" and chats about arranging to bring an old New York friend with him to their next meeting. "I need hardly assure you that I am looking forward to the occasion with rather special anticipations." Boldly signed in his usual teal blue ink. Original envelope present, addressed to Gates in Grant's hand. Second, from Pemberton is an ANS, 1p, 5¼" X 8½", New York, NY, 4 March 1963. Same correspondent. Very good. On "From John C. Pemberton" stationery, Pemberton asks Gates "Please don't forget to send that Vicksburg Medallion to Genl. Grant -- at my expense," signing with initials. Accompanying this pair is a superb 8" X 10" glossy black and white closeup photograph of Grant and Pemberton side by side at Civil War Round Table function on January 13, 1963 -- the day after Grant wrote his letter -- with him holding a large ornate plaque naming him "Honorary President of The Civil War Round Table of New York." Near fine. An original, likely one-of-a-kind print probably taken by Gates. A quite unusual and fascinating trio. Seller Inventory # 46229

About this Item: Washington, D.C., August 14, 1868., 1868. Condition: Very good. - A 7-1/4 inches high by 4-5/8 inches wide broadsheet General Order issued as a "resolution of Congress" authorizing Lieutenant General W.T. Sherman "to use the most efficient means his judgment will approve, to reclaim from peonage the women and children of the Navajo Indians, now held in slavery in the territory adjacent to their homes, and the reservation on which the Navajo Indians have been confined." The resolution adapted by Congress on July 27, 1868 was distributed as a general order by "Command of General Grant" and signed in print by E.D. Townsend, as Assistant Adjutant General. Removed from a bound collection in the distant past, the broadsheet is lightly chipped with stab marks along the left edge. Very good. Throughout the American Southwest and, in this case New Mexico, Spanish settlers and their ancestors pursued a flourishing slave trade from the 16th though the 19th centuries. Captive Native Americans, who became known as "Genizaros" were sold as slaves to Hispanic families. This practice went on even after the United States came to govern New Mexico. Having abolished slavery through the 13th Amendment in 1865, Congress then passed the "Peonage Act" in 1867 when it became known that New Mexicans still owned hundreds, maybe thousands, of these "Genizaros", consisting mostly of Navajo women and children.

About this Item: Southern Illinois University Press, Carbondale, 1967. Hardcover. Edited by John Y. Simon. Volumes 1 through 6. Small 4to. Red cloth, price-clipped dust jackets. xxxix, 458pp; xxxiii, 399pp; xxv, 479pp; xxv, 520pp; xxv, 458pp; xxiv, 492pp. Frontispieces, illustrations, maps. Fine/near fine overall. Slightest occasional jacket edgewear. The first half dozen volumes -- all tight, handsome, exceptional, covering the period from 1837 until December 8, 1862 -- of the famed scholarly project that's still in process today. Includes a choice autograph addition: Tipped to an inner flyleaf of the first volume is a Typed Letter Signed from Simon to noted Lincoln and Civil War scholar Arnold F. Gates (1914-93), 1p, 8½" X 11", 1966 August 24. Near fine. Two faint original horizontal folds. On the eve of the publication of the first volume, writing on letterhead of "The Ulysses S. Grant Association," the ever-helpful Simon helps Gates with a research question. In part: "I have checked all our Grant indexes without finding anything from Andrew C. Todd. It may well be, however, that, while we do not have anything currently written either by Todd to Grant or Grant to Todd, we may turn up something later. It may also be that he is mentioned in correspondence not indexed under his name." Signed simply "John" in blue ballpoint. Gates commented on Simon's herculean editing task years later in a "Civil War Times Illustrated" book review (September 1982), thusly: "If anyone deserved a Pulitzer award for a task of historical scholarship, it has to be Dr. John Y. Simon. laboring on this significant and monumental contribution." DORNBUSCH IV, 1536. Seller Inventory # 33699

Ulysses S. Grant served as president of the United States from March 4, 1869 to March 4, 1877. On January 29, 1877, (five days before he left office), Grant gave an address to the Senate of the United States regarding a controversial dispute that had arisen over the results of the upcoming presidential election. In the address, Grant argued that the people must put their trust in Congress, stating: "In all periods of history controversies have arisen as to the succession or choice of the chiefs of states, and no party or citizens loving their country and its free institutions can sacrifice too much of mere feeling in preserving through the upright course of law their country from the smallest danger to its peace on such an occasion; and it can not be impressed too firmly in the hearts of all the people that true liberty and real progress can exist only through a cheerful adherence to constitutional law.".

About this Item: 1876. Document signed Ulysses S. Grant as President of the United States of America, one page, January 29, 1876. President Grant authorizes and directs "the Secretary of State to affix the Seal of the United States to a Warrant for the conditional pardon of H.H. Mareau." Signed boldly at the conclusion by Grant. Accompanied by a small folder of papers generated from the National Archives which provide information on the pardon of H.H. Mareau whose offense was "issuing business cards in likeness of Treasury notes." Matted and framed. Ulysses S. Grant was the 18th President of the United States (1869-77). As Commanding General of the United States Army (1864-69), Grant worked closely with President Abraham Lincoln to lead the Union Army to victory over the Confederacy in the Civil War. He implemented Congressional Reconstruction, often at odds with Lincoln's successor, Andrew Johnson. Twice elected president, Grant led the Republicans in their effort to remove the vestiges of Confederate nationalism and slavery, protect African-American citizenship, and supported unbridled nationwide industrial expansionism during the Gilded Age.

About this Item: Autograph boldly signed "U.S. Grant Maj. Gen, U.S.A." on a card. Double matted and framed with a photograph of Grant. The entire piece measures 16.5 inches by 10.5 inches. In near fine condition. Ulysses S. Grant served as president of the United States from March 4, 1869 to March 4, 1877. On January 29, 1877, (five days before he left office), Grant gave an address to the Senate of the United States regarding a controversial dispute that had arisen over the results of the upcoming presidential election. In the address, Grant argued that the people must put their trust in Congress, stating: "In all periods of history controversies have arisen as to the succession or choice of the chiefs of states, and no party or citizens loving their country and its free institutions can sacrifice too much of mere feeling in preserving through the upright course of law their country from the smallest danger to its peace on such an occasion; and it can not be impressed too firmly in the hearts of all the people that true liberty and real progress can exist only through a cheerful adherence to constitutional law.".

About this Item: Rare Autograph Letter signed and entirely in the hand of Ulysses S. Grant. One page, folded, the letter is dated February 10th 1883 on Grant's 3 East 66th Street letterhead and reads in full, "My dear Mrs. Fish: I am very sorry to withdraw Mrs. Grants and my acceptance to dine with you and Governor Fish on Tuesday next but I am obliged to. On Thursday last I received letter from the Secretary of State requesting my presence in Washington the first of the coming week in connection with the commercial treaty between the United States and Mexico. I wrote to him how inconvenient it would be for me to go before the last of the week, and that if not absolutely necessary I would postpone my visit to that time. Today I received an answer saying that the Chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, of the Senate, desires me to appear before that committee on Thursday next. In view of the fact that there will be but three weeks of the sessions after Thursday next, and the great importance of the treaty under consideration, I put that I must go to Washington Thursday evening. General and Mts. Beale will be here Thursday evening to spend some days with us and Mrs. Grant feels that she would not like to have them, and General Beale writes me that Mrs. Beale is suffering so with her eye that she will have to keep to the house and out of strong light. Very Truly yous U.S. Grant." In near fine condition. When Grant returned to America from Post-presidnecy world tour, he had depleted most of his savings and needed to earn money and find a new home. Wealthy friends bought him a home on Manhattan's Upper East Side, and to make an income, Grant, Jay Gould, and former Mexican Finance Secretary Matias Romero chartered the Mexican Southern Railroad, with plans to build a railroad from Oaxaca to Mexico City. Grant urged Chester A. Arthur, who had succeeded Garfield as president in 1881, to negotiate a free trade treaty with Mexico. Arthur and the Mexican government agreed, but the United States Senate rejected the treaty in 1883. The railroad was similarly unsuccessful, falling into bankruptcy the following year.

About this Item: Charles L. Webster, New York, 1886. First edition. First edition. Illustrated with frontispiece portrait of Grant in both volumes, with forty-three maps, including a large folding map, and two steel engravings. 584, [2]; 647, [3] pp. Inscribed by Ulysses S. Grant's grandchildren Nelly and Chapman Grant (in Nelly's Grant's hand) to "Mattie" [see note below]. 2 vols. 8vo. A Grant Family Copy, Inscribed by his Grandchildren. A Grant family association copy of President and Civil War General's remarkable memoir, written in the final years of his life as he was suffering from terminal throat cancer. Suffering both physically and financially, as the result of financial misfortune, Grant began writing his autobiography in the fall of 1884 and finished in July of 1885, five days before his death. Samuel Clemens (Mark Twain) encouraged Grant and shepherded the book to publication through the Webster connection. Eagerly anticipated by a public that had been following Grant's illness in the press, the book was an immediate success upon its release, and has long been considered one of if not the best memoirs written by an American president. Since its publication, it has received acclaim from literary figures including Twain and Gertrude Stein, and from numerous modern American historians and political commentators from Eric Foner to Ta-Nehisi Coates. This example inscribed by Ulysses S. Grant's grandchildren, Nellie and Chapman Grant (the children of Jesse Root Grant, Ulysses S. Grant's youngest son), to "Mattie" -- presumably Matilda Bartikofsky Grant, the wife of Ulysses S. Grant IV (the son of Ulysses S. Grant Jr.). Original green cloth, gilt medallions stamped to front and back covers, gilt lettering to spine. Some staining to covers of vol. 1, hinges starting. Lacking front blanks in each vol.

About this Item: Washington, 1867. unbound. 1 page on "War Department" letterhead, 9.75 x 7.75 inches, Washington, November 6, 1867 -- an uncommon partly printed document signed "U.S. Grant" as ad interim Secretary of War, a post he held for only eight weeks, informing Thomas J. Greggs: "You are hereby notified that the President of the United States has appointed you, for gallant and meritorious services during the war, a Captain by Brevet. Should the Senate at their next session, advise and consent thereto, you will be commissioned accordingly." Beautifully framed to 15.5 x 17.5 inches with a 4.5 x 3.75-inch copperplate portrait, along with a tan matte and black-and-gold frame. The letter has horizontal folds and a small smudge in the left margin; overall a magnificent item in near fine condition. At the time that this document was signed, President Andrew Johnson was undergoing Impeachment proceedings. A week earlier he compounded his problems by firing Secretary of War Stanton and convincing Grant to fill the Cabinet position. Two months later both houses of Congress determined that it was illegal to fire Stanton and that he should be reinstated immediately. Grant, rather than to get caught up with the political controversy, walked away from President Johnson - both men refusing to speak to one another for the rest of their lives.

About this Item: Autograph letter signed by and entirely in the hand of Ulysses S. Grant as President. Addressed to the Attorney General of the United States Edwards Pierrepont the letter reads, "Elizabeth, N.J. Sept. 2nd 1876 Dear Judge, While in Utica Judge Hunt spoke to me of the importance of appointing a member to Judge Woodruff at as early as a day as practicable on account of the great amount of business before the court. I do not know of any lawyer in the circuit to whom to tender the position when it should be Senator Edmunds and he I should dislike to see leave the Senate. But you are well acquainted with the Bar in that circuit and its wants, and can no doubt suggest the right man for the place. If you will send me a commission therefore to St. Louis so as to reach me there between the 24th and 28th either filled up of the name blank, with suggestions as to the best man I will sign and return it. Very truly your humble servant U.S. Grant." Grant appointed Pierrepont Attorney General of the United States on April 26, 1875. When he assumed the office, Pierrepont immediately implemented overdue reform in the South's U.S. Marshal and U.S. Attorney departments including extensive investigations into the conduct of the U.S. Attorneys and U.S. Marshals, exposing fraud and corruption.

Elected president in 1868, Grant stabilized the post-war national economy, created the Department of Justice, and led the Republicans in their efforts to remove the vestiges of Confederate nationalism, racism, and slavery. The presidential administration, including the cabinet, of Ulysses S. Grant was fraught with scandal and corruption, following the Black Friday gold panic in 1869, scandals were discovered in seven federal departments including the Treasury, Interior, and State. Known to run his cabinet in an unprecedented military style, Grant often pardoned whose accused and convicted of government crimes, nepotism became prevalent in his appointments with over 40 family members appointed by him to the United States government throughout his two terms.
