HISTORIC PAINTED DOVETAIL DOWER CHEST MADE FOR ANNA-MARIA DICKERT, DAUGHTER OF JACOB DICKERT, FAMOUS PENNSYLVANIA RIFLE MAKER. 18th century chest with two tombstone panels featuring tulips and urns with distelfink. Bearing the name of Anna-Maria Dickert. Sitting atop oak bracket base of similar era but different origin. Dated 1786 on front. SIZE: 49″w x 20″d x 25-1/2″ h PROVENANCE: Anna-Maria Dickert was the daughter of well known 18th century gunsmith Jacob Dickert. records show that Jacob Dickert was a member of the Moravian Church of Lancaster Pennsylvania. (Fine article by Henry Kauffman can be found in April 1952 Antiques Magazine.) A great deal of information pertaining to Jacob Dickert and his gunsmithing is contained in the two volume set “U.S. Ordnance” By Major James E. Hicks. Dickert was born in Maintz, Germany in 1740. He came to America with his parents and settled in Berks County, Pennsylvania, in 1748. His family moved to Lancaster in 1756. In 1764 he married Johanneta Hofer who was born in York County in 1746. Jacob became a citizen of Pennsylvania and the Kingdom of Great Britain in 1765. In 1776 Jacob Dickert and John Henry, another Lancaster gunsmith, built a boring mill. Dickert probably made rifles for the Continental Army but the first known contract between Dickert and the United States is dated 1792. In 1787 Jacob Dickert’s daughter married James Gill, a merchant of Lancaster. CONDITION: The chest was altered a long time ago and is now fitted with an 18th century bracket base from another period chest. Probably at the same time, much of the paint on the chest was scraped down to the bare wood, however the inscription and the two panels were preserved. The surface was apparently also varnished at that time. Original hinges and lock intact and original lid is detached. 9-92260 (4,000-7,000)

IMPORTANT ARCHIVE OF LETTERS, PHOTOGRAPHS, MAPS, INSIGNIAS, AND MEDALS OF LUIS EMILIO, CAPTAIN OF THE BLACK 54TH REGIMENT, COMPANY E. Archive of Luis Emilio consisting of commissions, discharges, diaries, photographs, maps, insignia, etc. Included in this group is a pair of brass officer’s spurs with iron rowls, each having a tag reading “Spur of Captain L. F. Emilio 54th MA Infantry in Civil War when in command of Regiment or detailed as active field officer and mounted”; Officer’s hat cord. This hat cord appears to be the same cord seen on his slouch hat in a photograph taken October 12, 1863 on Morris Island when Emilio was a 2nd Lieutenant. There is a pair of Smith Patent 2nd Lieutenant straps that also appear in this photograph and possibly the ones offered here. Two additional pairs of straps as a Captain accompany this lot, one being a traditional double bordered bullion embroidery standard Infantry measuring about 4-1/2” x 1-3/4”. The most unusual set of straps we have ever cataloged are a pair, no doubt made in Carolina, by someone proficient in basket weaving. This is the first pair of “theater made” shoulder straps this cataloger has ever seen during the Civil War. Emilio was made Captain May 22, 1863 and we have little doubt this is the pair of straps in a September 19th, 1863 letter he sends home that is offered in the next lot. Included is a Civil War Campaign medal serial number 27 (M. No. 27); Gilmore Medal (this medal is uninscribed) but Emilio was present at the assault on Fort Sumpter, August 23rd, 1863. There are five diaries accompanying this lot, the first starts in 1861 while Luis is still a student, but starts in a second diary October 19th with his military life. Every page in this book is filled out going through February 12, 1862. The next diary starts January 1, 1864 and every date for 1864 is filled out continuing in the memoranda pages in the back, January 1, 1865 through February 23. An 1865 diary starts on March 12 and continues through end of year. An 1866 diary begins with only partial entries into June. The 1865 diary has an entry on flyleaf stating this book was left at Hilton Head and Emilio states he has to copy the entries for January & February but he never did but as stated each date from March 12 through the end of the year is filled in with much detail with mostly military inscriptions. The original “Consent to the Enlistment of a Minor” document signed by Emilio’s father when he was 16 to join the Army. All three of Emilio’s commissions in the 54th MA are present signed by Governor John Andrew. Emilio’s discharge from the 23rd MA is present as are other documents concerning Emilio’s service in the 54th MA both wartime and after. His original pension documents are present, the original “mustering out” document of Emilio dated Savannah, GA March 24, 1865 is present. There are numerous bureaucratic documents prepared by Emilio in the normal bureaucracy of the military. Many of these are quite interesting in that they show the amount of bullets used in the various battles and as will be seen in a letter written after Wagner in the next lot an ordinance return stating the damage of an Enfield musket hit by a cannon ball. The original signed muster out roll for Emilio is a rarely seen document but is present and dated March 29, 1865. There are numerous letters received by Luis Emilio, 170 of which are during the war. Also approximately 375 post war letters. Most of these letters are from his family, many in response to his letters which will be sold in the next lot. Almost all of these letters received retain their original stamped envelopes. There are also several passes and a couple of interesting “counter signs” giving passwords when confronted between lines. There is a large grouping of post-war correspondence, much of it referring to the exploits of the 54th MA in reference to research for Emilio’s 1891 book which was a history of the 54th MA “Brave Black Regiment”. There are letters from officer’s in the Confederacy who were present at the assault at Fort Wagner including a long narrative from Confederate General Johnson Haygood detailing Col. Shaw’s death and Shaw’s burial after the assault. There are several letters written by black enlisted men in the 54th under Emilio’s command requesting his help in government matters where commanding officer’s needed to sign in reference to pay or other issues. At least one letter just states it was an honor to serve under him. In one of the letters Luis is told to expect a 25-page letter from “Wendall”, a friend from Salem and several other of his letters are in this archive. This 25-page letter was written July 26, 1863 and pretty well covers the politics and the military details of many of the Salem, MA boys. There are 8 wartime CDV’s of Luis in uniform, 5 different ones are framed and the other three are loose. Images span from his entry into the service until late 1864. There are 7 hand-drawn maps of the different theaters of operation of the 54th MA, the largest of these maps has an imprint of 37” x 13” which shows the field of operations of the 54th detailing the entire South Carolina coast into North Carolina and Florida. There is a good map showing the Battlefield of Olustee, James Island, Boykin’s Mills. It shows positions April 18, 1865 after Emilio left the regiment. There is a good map of Charleston and a couple detailing Fort Wagner. There are also two maps of the Battle of Honey Hill, but both of these maps are facsimiles though all drawn by James D. Gardner of the 44th MA. There is about a 12” x 8“ lithograph printed in 1867 taken from a Thomas Nast painting. Luis Emilio collected newspaper clippings from every newspaper he found concerning his military actions especially those of the 54th MA and there are over 150 clippings dating from 1861 to the end of the war with many concerning just the 54th MA. There are also 200 post-war papers and clippings concerning the 54th MA and Emilio’s military history. Also included in this lot are a few GAR items, a plaster cast of a rare Confederate Navy button, and a typed memoir of Emilio’s father written by Luis Emilio. CONDITION: Generally in very good condition. 9-90969 (40,000-60,000)

IMPORTANT ARCHIVE OF LETTERS AND PHOTOGRAPHS OF CAPTAIN LUIS EMILIO OF THE BLACK 54TH MASSACHUSETTS REGIMENT, COMPANY E. This lot consists of the contents of a dome top document box with leather veneer & cloth liner measuring about 15” x 9” x 5”. An 1880 dated label states this little trunk was made in 1840 for Luis’s mother in Malaga, Spain. The trunk contains about 50 letters dating from the 1830’s to the 1840’s to various Emilio family members, mostly Luis’s parents, in Spain and in Salem, MA. These letters are all in Spanish, no transcription was attempted. There is a Civil War era CDV album containing 20 images, all of the Emilio family starting with Luis’s grandparents, his parents, his siblings and other relatives, most identified. The last image is of Emilio in uniform when commissioned 2nd Lieutenant. of the 54th MA. Also laid into the album is a July 1862 dated CDV of Sarah D. Gilbert. There is a 10kt gold 1.25” cross also found in the trunk. There are five other CDVs’ of family members and 13 hard images in cases of which most are daguerreotypes & ambrotypes of the Emilio children including a 1/6th plate tintype of Luis in uniform probably taken July 24th in New Bern, North Carolina. Luis describes sitting for an image on that day and his mother responds in a letter about a black spot on his lip which Luis states is 9 months of mustache growth. This image shows Luis seated wearing a four-button sack coat wearing his enlisted belt with US buckle, cap box and bayonet visible. He is wearing a kepi with a rain cover which he also describes in one of his letters. The trunk also contains 23 school related documents including a letter of recommendation from his principle, an invitation and menu for an 1867 private dinner in honor of Capt. Emilio’s service by his fellow Officers of the 54th MA. There is also a church program from Christmas of 1863 from Emilio’s church, St. Peters. There is a detailed memo book that lists most every officer of the 54th MA along with a few colored soldiers with detailed biographies that possibly were used in Emilio’s history of the 54th MA which was published in 1891. The Civil War archive of Luis Emilio’s letters written home to his parents or siblings total 128 letters, mostly four-page but many longer. The letters are fairly well spaced throughout his service with no real gaps detailing most every action he was involved in from the formation of the 23rd MA to his discharge from the 23rd and commission in the 54th MA. This is among the greatest letter groupings of a Civil War soldier ever to come to market. Not only are the letters in overall fine condition; Luis had a beautiful script that is easily read. He writes vivid, detailed accounts of every aspect of soldier life. When you start reading these letters from day 1 they read like a book and it is hard to stop. Much of this material is not published even in his memoirs as much was not politically appropriate for the Victorian times. Interested parties should view and read this archive at length. The following are a few quotes from these Luis Emilio letters: 11/61 From Camp to his Mother: Luis is only 16 when writing his mother “I have to break to you the news that feeling it to be duty to my country and to posterity have enlisted in the Grand Army…My dear momma you do not a greater sacrifice than thousands of American mothers are doing cheerfully and you have the consolation that I am in one of the finest Companies in the services where we are all acquainted and friends. Do not regret the step that I have taken with a full perception of all consequences …if I should fall, would you not recall my memory with pride?” 11/23/61 Annapolis: In response to his sister’s letter about a local friend who will not join the Army: “Many sick and wounded soldiers…soldiering is no boys play…has no idea of the hardships we have to endure”. 12/8/61 In a letter to his mother “I am fully aware that (enlisting) father denied himself for some time, perhaps forever, a little assistance or companionship that I might afford, or my part giving up some of the most important years of my life in which I was to prepare myself to get my living and the chances of being cut down in the prime of life. All this I thought of time and time again but when I put in the balance of the imperative call of my country for her sons to come forth…to support the government…I felt in my heart that I could not conscientiously refuse the call”. 1/4/62 Annapolis: Luis has been in the Army 3 months and is sending his pay to his father to do with as he wishes. “…peculiar circumstances that the first money I ever earned in my life was toiling and laboring under the hardships of a soldier life?” 1/19/62 On board Schooner Highlander off Hatteras inlet: In a letter to his father Luis details a terrible storm that capsized several other schooners carrying troops with many men saved but others drowned. “I shall never forget”. 2/18/62 Camp Foster on Roanoke Island: Luis details the battle with loss of 30 killed and 100 wounded, 3,000 rebels captured “Contrabands are coming in every day from the mainland…” 3/22/62 Luis sends home a Major’s commission from the 30th No Carolina, he found as curiosity he would send home many souvenirs after this. 4/62 New Bern, NC: “In New Bern all is quiet…stores open…the destitute are fed and many colored folks there receive employment”. 8/9/62 New Bern, NC: Luis had seen constant fighting and skirmishing and death. “…I may never again see you…Sometimes when by myself the thought comes to me that never again I may witness a mother’s love, a father’s affection and brother and sisters tender greetings. Never feel the quiet peaceful influences of home but now in the beginning of early manhood be cut off, and my bones lay unburied in a strange land, no one to mourn or say a kind word; or return a maimed, crippled wreck, a shadow of what I was, to be a burden in the community…but enough of this…trust in providence”. He describes in many of his letters the routine going-ons in camp, the news of battles won and lost and about so many friends in the military and what they are doing. Luis, when he writes to his father, tells him more because he knows he served six years in the Spanish Army before coming to America and will understand what Luis is seeing and feeling. 9/5/62 Luis has been promoted to Sergeant after being a Corporal a scant 12 days, he is only 17 years old 10/27/62 In a four-page letter to his mother Luis describes himself as an “old soldier” with over a year of service. Luis comments on the lack of spirit some new recruits have who are only coming in for the $200-300 bounties 12/24/62 Luis has seen much fighting and killing, he states that all plantations in this vicinity are deserted and at the battle of Kinston 500 rebels were captured. 1/4/63 “Thank god I was preserved through the terrible fire at the Battle of Whitehall, deeply we can sympathize therefore with those who have lost loved ones. It was terrible to see the poor boys for a few moments before marched at our side with the vigor of life. The people are beginning to realize the terrible losses we have suffered since the war commenced….almost every fireside adorns a vacant seat.”. 2/18/63 Emilio’s last letter while written as a member of the 23rd, when on troop transport from Beufort, NC to now laying off Port Royal, SC, Luis describes in this letter the other vessels in the harbor and the porpoises playing around his ship in the calm weather. There is a 2 month gap in the letters until June 2nd. In the time lapse Luis has been back to MA to accept his commission into the 54th MA. 6/2/63 On troop transport from Boston “…enthusiastic reception of the 54th through Boston…the Regiment behaved with credit, the regiment embarked immediately…Frederick Douglas and other gentlemen accompanied us down the harbor…”. 7/15/63 “We can plainly see the rebel pickets and know the extensive forts on the island above us. The main object at present is to take Fort Wagner on Morris Island…Morris Island once taken batteries can be planted in the rear of Ft. Sumter and the other Forts can be reduced…Each day our men have been attacked and driven in so it is a matter of some responsibility to be in command, besides my men have never been on picket before…all went well while my company was there until 10pm when we were attacked and fell back on the reserve. We moved back a short distance and formed a new line and again were attacked, 1am. Retired, and everything was quiet until morning” 7/16/63 3pm “An eventful day!…Awakened by musketry I mounted a pile of bread boxes and could see the flashes of the guns the whole length of the line…Pawnee opened with her guns…the drums of the different regiments sound the long roll…In less than 10 minutes our pickets began to come in on the double quick; wounded men limped down the road…Sergeant severely injured….a few moments more whizz, zip-zip, bullets and shells, fortunately high. The men stood up well, no dodging that I saw as I passed in rear of the line…the rebel shelling however did not last long, for soon the First CT Battery came up and opened fire…our whole regiment was sent to the front on picket duty and reoccupied the original line…many have changed their opinions in Negro bravery. Company H lost 25 men”. So ended our first action. 7/18/63 This letter was posted the afternoon of July 18th. “Everyone is confident that Ft. Wagner and Sumter must fall…it will be glorious…”.Little did Luis know of the famous night attach to some take place. 7/22/63 Morris Island: In this 4-page letter to his parents “Through the grace of providence I pass safely through the terrible assault of Ft. Wagner last Saturday night…where our regt. was fearfully cutup, we lost our beloved Col. Shaw, killed on the parapet….nearly 300 men killed, wounded and missing in all”. “We had the advance…were not allowed to fire a gun, and charge clear up the fort but it was of no use. Terrific fire from Wagner, Sumpter, Johnson, Moultry and Cummings Point concentrated was too much for us and we had to fall back….I’m in command of the Regt. I am the only Captain to escape without being touched….the men are in fair spirits.” 7/30/63 Morris Island: In an 8-page letter to his sister “…it is real sad for me to receive letter to boys in the company that are dead and others missing and to have the painful duty to redirect them to their friends at home…” 8/12/63 In an 8-page letter to his mother “we are pleased with the just praise awarded to the 54th in the Northern papers which I see speak in the highest terms of the regiment and hear even a sentiment among the white regiments are much changed for the better”. 9/12/63 “The whole of Morris Island now in our possession now having been evacuated by the rebels September 7th”. 9/13/63 “Many men killed in fatigue duty in extreme front of Wagner putting up sand between themselves and the fort. Quite dangerous duty and quite a number killed and wounded. Before the place was evacuated…Our men do not wish to accept the $10 a month which is all that can be paid by law at present, the government I have no doubt will rectify this when Congress meets in December. We hope the officer’s will be paid without waiting for the men as we are sadly in want of money. Everything is very high and you know and officer has to buy everything he eats…”. Also in this letter Luis refers to “The straps”. It is possible he is referring to the theater made Captains shoulder straps made from palm fronds edging and bars that are in the previous lot. 10/2/63 “I think some time may lapse before active operations are again resumed…yesterday I received a splendid photograph of Col. Shaw from his father…” 10/19/63 Col. Hallowell looks real spry after recovering from 6 wounds from Ft. Wagner. “Farragut may be put in command of Navy to coordinate Army and Navy bombardment like Port Hudson and Vicksburg”. 10/24/63 “Corporal Jones of my company has just been in to see me-bringing the pictures of his wife…and his son, a fat little chub of 7 years for me to inspect (Army phrase). The corporal is a very intelligent man from Albany, NY-his occupation a barber, the corporal is and obliging man so he comes in voluntarily every morning …shaves me and fixes my hair in the most approved style all the while amusing me with his talk…” 11/5/63 “Mrs. Robert Shaw-widow of our consecrated Col. Has made quite a present to the men of the regt. …beautiful little books of the gospel all bound of different morocco’s, the flyleaf is pasted in printed form to this effect “Presented to (here the name is written ) of the 54th MA by Mrs. Robert G. Shaw””. 11/12/63 “Our Chaplin a Mr. Harrison of Pittsfield, MA (colored) …intelligent and fine man”. 11/19/63 “You must remember that officer’s are allowed a servant by the government who pay him regular wages and allows rations. Now I have a very nice boy, he is an enlisted man, but is unable to perform a regular soldiers duty. So I have him with me, he attends to everything. Black my boots and shoes…cleans my swords, belt and pistol”. 11/29/63 “Yesterday was an eventful day for in the morning our regiment received 7 conscripts from MA. They are a good lot of men.” 12/17/63 “Major Sturgis from MA has been here with funds provided by our whole State to pay our regiment…that portion of their rightful pay, refused by the US government. The men however unanimously refused to accept one single cent from MA preferring to wait until the government pays them their just due, as other soldiers. I do not blame them in this matter, although I know that their families must suffer in the meantime.” 12/21/63 “We were all much pleased to peruse the President’s message which came by the last mail from the north. The amnesty which he gives forth to the people of the South will doubtless carry considerable sensation among the leaders of the rebellion and will go far towards numbing the rotten mass that styles itself the Southern Confederacy. May this last proclamation be speedily conductive of as much good as Mr. Lincoln’s Emancipation Act.”. “The men refused the part pay tendered them by MA. They declare they must have full pay from government”. 12/27/63 In a 4-page letter written to his mother he describes another great minstrel show that the men performed on a weekly basis to great the delight of the officer’s and men “Do not be troubled about our assaulting Fort Sumpter. I don’t think it will be attempted again…if all the sentiments of the women were made public, even the self sacrificing Spartan mother & sisters of older times would not be fit to “hold a candle” to those who have this war so cheerfully yet sorrowfully sent sons and Brothers to the conflict with a parting instruction “Trust in god and keep your powder dry””. Between the evacuation of Fort Wagner and the initial assault the 54th MA was doing the difficult and dangerous fatigue work of building works and were exposed to constant fire from Wagner. In the remaining 40+ letters in this grouping Luis details activities of the 54th including the Florida Expedition including the Battle of Olustee. During the Florida campaign and finally the fighting before Savannah and it’s fall. 4/29/64 “How hard it is for our poor fellows over a year in service and without a cent of pay-terrible-many of their families turned out the doors by their landlords. The poor fellows come to us officer’s and share their letters but what can we do for them. All men (traitor’s rather) that oppose Senator Wilson’s bill should be forever disgraced in the midst of the people…”. Wilson’s Bill is to give equal pay for the men of the 54th. A historical fact – It would not be until Savannah in 1865 the troops would receive 18 months full back pay 7/12/64 This letter describes the Battle of James Island and is interesting to note that an Ordinance Report in the previous lot lists this gun as being damaged in battle on this date. “…no casualties in my company but one killed in regiment …he was a solid shot, the first day. One of my command had a narrow escape-a solid shot came skipping along where the company was laying and cutting the canteen from his side struck his musket bending it double…”. If you aren’t familiar with a “solid shot”, it is a 12 pound solid cannon ball shot from a Napoleon field gun. 7/15/64 In an 8-page letter written from Fort Green, Folly Island: “The shot and shells and balls…over our heads…we had but little fighting on James Island but the artillery kept it up for ten days and nights. I slept soundly nonetheless. The mosquitoes troubling me more…” 9/1/64 “…600 rebels prisoners of war are to be sent here and placed on the front under the rebel fire that our regt. is to be detailed for this guard duty. I think it will be a rather agreeable occupation. 9/18/64 “…the 6 Companies of our regiment are engaged in guarding 600 rebel officers in a stockade complex….the prisoners behaved excellently-not one word of insult to our colored soldiers-to be sure they have no cause to complain for their treatment is greatly in contrast to the treatment meted out to our own prisoners in their hands at Andersonville, GA and the Libby.”. In Luis’s last letter in this archive written 3/20/65 from Savannah on 54th MA stationery “Division of Sheridan’s Army stationed with us…colored troops….we can successfully compete with white troops in drill, discipline and soldierly bearing on all occasions”. Luis Emilio was to be mustered out of service 7 days later. This wonderful archive includes letters from every month of his service with exception of March & April 1863 when he was in MA accepting his commission for the 54th and had no need to write letters home since he was home. CONDITION: Generally very good, as described above. 9-90959 (80,000-120,000)

JOSHUA CHAMBERLAIN LETTER. 3-Page ALS, March 10, 1865. Written for the father of Weston Keene who was killed at the Battle of Peebles Farm,VA. Sept. 30, 1864. Chamberlain mentions that he will shortly take control of the 20th Regt. where he will look over the father’s other son Daniel Keene who later died during the war as an officer of a black Regiment. Chamberlain notes that “while I lay terribly wounded myself, gave me a deep and bitter pang of sorrow which will never be wholly removed” (regarding the death of Capt. Weston Keene). This is a great opportunity to buy a wonderful Joshua Chamberlain letter in very fine condition concerning two Maine soldiers, and a heart-felt sorrow displayed by Chamberlain to the father for the loss of one. Head Qrs 1st Brigade 1st Div. 5th Corps March 10, 1865 My Dear Sir, Yours of Feb 20th has been forwarded to me from (Brunswick?), as I had left for the field again before it has (written?). As you probably know, I have always taken a great interest in your sons, because they were good soldiers and good men, who conducted themselves in a manner to gain the respect and esteem of all associated with them. You may justly feel a pride in them, sir, as they have done honor to their name. I regarded Captain Weston Keene as one of the best officers in that regiment. The news of his death, while I lay terribly wounded myself gave me a deep and bitter pang of sorrow which will never be wholly removed. You already know that I have often recommended Daniel, first as a Sargent and afterwards as a Commissioned officer. For some reason the company and regimental officers have not cordially concurred in my opinion, and as I have not for a long time had command of that regiment, I could not interfere with appointments in it. The 20th is not among any regiments now, but I expect it will fall in to my command before long, and I will then see if something may not be done for your son. I do this with great cheerfulness in view of his merits, and with a mournful satisfaction in as much as I think that the sacrifice you have so nobly made of your affection & your hopes in the loss of your brave and good boy deserves recognition. I am, My Dear Sir, Your friend & servant, J.L. Chamberlain Brig. Gene. U.S.A. SIZE: 8″ x 10″ (unfolded) CONDITION: Very good, clear and bold. 9-90947 (1,000-2,000)

INTERESTING AND POSSIBLY UNIQUE PERIOD FACSIMILE OF LINCOLN’S FINAL DISPATCH. The tissue document in ink mounted to an album page. Accompanying the page is a hand written note signed “Respectfully yours, H.C. Harmon” (Second Auditor in the Treasury in 1862 who later named his son U.S.G. Harmon. The note is addressed to Mr. French (E.B. French, Secretary of State, Maine). The note states “The enclosed is a fac-simile of the original taken by me yesterday. There is no doubt of its authenticity – it was endorsed yesterday by Gen. Grant for a gentleman from Louisville, KY. As the last dispatch seen written by President Lincoln in relation to the operations against Lee, and so cha___-_______ of Lincoln it is a valuable souvenier – keep it if you desire. You will observe that the dispatch was sent but two days before Lee’s surrender.” NOTE: With the help of James M. Cornelius, Ph.D., Curator, Lincoln Collection, of the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library & Museum of Springfield, IL, we have determined that this is a tracing off from the original. The original was in the Charles F. Gunther collection between 1890-1920. We believe that it is possible that the tracing was done during this time or possibly earlier. We do know that because Harmon indicates on his note that it is “but two days before Lee’s surrender” that is was not done at the same time as the dispatch was written. At the top of the tracing, the collector “Hiltin” has written “Copy of Lincoln’s last dispatch, Hilton 10.16.” PROVENANCE: A Maine collection. CONDITION: The note in very good condition; the tissue showing glue marks, folds and toning. Generally intact. 9-90941 (300-500)

THREE ABRAHAM LINCOLN ITEMS. One being a 3-page pamphlet approximately 8″ x 5″ advertising the funeral services for Lincoln at City Hall in the city of Portland, April 19, 1865.

RARE BRONZE ART NOUVEAU PORTER GARDEN TELESCOPE. Circa 1923, Vermont. Russell W. Porter (American, 1871-1949). This original example cast without a serial number within the plaque designed as a fully operational 6″ telescope as originally designed the pin-gnomon, prism and eyepiece mounted at the terminus of a bronze leaf rising from the lotus bowl base. The tilting base cast with the following identification: “The Porter/ Garden Telescope/ BUILT AND SOLD BY/ JONES & LAMSON MACHINE CO/ Springfield Vermont./ .U.S.A.” above the unmarked number plate. The lotus leaf bowl calibrated by individual degrees of declination set within an hour ring divided in ten minute intervals. Note: Designed by Russell Porter (1871-1949), pioneer of amateur astronomy in America. The influence and his work can be seen in places as diverse as the Smithsonian Institute and the 200-inch Hale Telescope on Mt. Palomar in California. Porter’s goal was to create an instrument that would be ornamental and practical in equal degrees, Garden Telescopes were produced by the Jones and Lamson Machine Company of Vermont. They were originally supplied with accessories, including double eyepieces (for two people using the telescope simultaneously), which dismantled with the mirror and the prism, to stow in a purpose-fitted case when not in use. The Newtonian 6-inch reflecting telescope converts into a sundial if the prism is pointed at the sun, the time read with ten-minute accuracy from the hour chapter ring that encircles the lotus bowl; of these, there may be only sixteen surviving examples recorded, including this one. The last two known examples to reach auction were one sold at Skinner’s Auction Gallery in 2007 bearing serial no. 53 and one sold at Woodbury Auction Co. in 2012 bearing serial no. 21. SIZE: 32″ l x 12″ dia. PROVENANCE: Property of a Central Maine gentleman. CONDITION: Telescope retains early surfaces with nice patina. Base and optics absent. The plate on which the serial number is normally found retains original unpolished surface with sand marks from the casting, this plaque normally is polished smooth and stamped with the serial number. The current owner of this telescope contacted Mr. Burton C. Willard, the historian for Stellaphane, the astronomy club formed by Russell Porter. He conjectured that perhaps this example was never completed for sale. He requested the owner to remove the declination pointer beneath which was discovered the number P12 which is purported to be identified at part 12 in the original Porter blueprints giving further credence to the authenticity of this example. 9-28444 (5,000-7,000)

IMPORTANT PAINTING OF GEORGE WASHINGTON BY WILLIAM POST (AMERICAN, 1720-1800). Oil on canvas, half portrait showing Washington wearing a black coat, white shirt, and having white curly hair. On canvas verso is written in period artist’s hand “W. Post paint / Danville”. Housed in a replacement period gilt frame. NOTE: Research with the help of the Patricia D. Klingenstein Library of the New York Historical Society has found that William Post according to the 1789 City Directory was listed as a “painter and glazier at 43 Water Street, New York City”. In earlier advertising he called himself a painter. William Post’s business is well documented as the first American art supply store opening in 1754 on the waterfront in New York City, which eventually became the Devoe Paint Company. It was most known as an importer of all supplies and materials needed for painting. In 1793, his colour shop was probably the best known establishment of its kind in the city. Another fact that may be important to this painting is that George Washington lived at 3 Cherry Street in New York City in 1789 (this is within one block of Post’s house and business in the year George Washington was inaugurated as President in New York). SIZE: 27-1/2″ x 21-1/2″. Overall: 34″ x 28″. CONDITION: Very good. Original canvas with strip lined support at tack line to stretcher. Minor scattered spot inpainting (before pictures and conservation report from Yost Conservation LLC is available. 9-90261 (50,000-75,000)

RARE & IMPORTANT CARVED AND JOINED WETHERSFIELD, CONNECTICUT “SUNFLOWER” CHEST, 17TH/EARLY 18TH CENTURY, POSSIBLY PETER BLIN (CIRCA 1640-1725). This very rare & early “sunflower chest” was the cover lot of Christie’s, New York “Important American Furniture, Silver, Folk Art and Decorative Arts” auction, on Wednesday, June 22, 1994. A copy of their original description follows: “The rectangular hinged and molded top opening to a single compartment fitted with a lidded till, the paneled exterior embellished by a reeded frieze above a carved triptych separated by applied column-and-urn-turned split balusters, each panel centering a relief-carved floral form on a punch-decoration ground, the sides embellished with applied bosses set in molded surround, the hole over an applied molded base on straight bracket feet (feet pieced 5-1/4in.) – 23-3/4in. high, 48 in. wide, 21in. deep”. SIZE: 48″ l x 21″ d x 24″ h. PROVENANCE: Joe Kindig, Jr. and son, York, Pennsylvania 1958. Christie’s New York, June 22, 1994 description continues: “As one of the most celebrated 17th century American furniture forms, the carved and joined Wethersfield “sunflower” chest represents a tour de force of the turner’s and joiner’s art, as well as a significant investment and status statement on the part of the owner. As with other documented examples of the form, the flamboyant carving and classically inspired turned embellishments of the sunflower chest illustrated here raises questions of manufacture, iconography and use. The majority of these case pieces have traditionally been attributed to the workshop of Peter Blin (c. 1639-1725; settled in the Wethersfield area after 1675), on the basis of a documented chest by Blin for Gershom Bulkeley (see Bulkeley, “A Discovery on the Connecticut Chest,” The Connecticut Historical Society Bulletin, XXIII, January 1958, pp. 17-19). While the turned and joined case pieces attributed to Blin share a similar design format, as well as the same wide, flat execution of the flanking tulip panels and additional floral embellishment above the principal flower of the central panel, the sheer number of these flower embellished forms attests to a larger network of shops in the Wethersfield area aware of an capable of producing the current fashion. A comparison of typical Wethersfield carving with English prototypes reveals the rich and significant design sources from which these transplanted English woodcarvers were drawing (see Kirk, John T. American Furniture and the British Tradition, New York, 1982, p. 116, fig. 294-296), and thus supports the idea of the general popularity of the motif, rather than its being the signature of any individual shop. Likewise, the central floral motif has variously been referred to as a peony, a sunflower, a marigold and a Tudor rose; while its flanking tulip motif has been interpreted a Dutch in origin and a popular symbol of the English Restoration. While the possibility exists that these motifs operated on a political symbolic level, it seems unlikely given chronology of the motifs and the larger popularity on an international level of related and easily confused floral motifs. (Kirk, P.91) that these images were anything more than aesthetically pleasing reminders of home. On a functional level, chests such as the example illustrated here served as sumptuous statements of wealth and good taste. They may also have served on a gender identification level as well. Scholarship on the carved chests and boxes of 17th century New England suggests that where plain board chests may have been intended for use by young men, more elaborately carved and joined chests may have been intended as a rite of passage or dowry gift for young women (see Ward, Barbara, et al. A place for Everything: Chests and Boxes in Early Colonial America, Winterhur, 1986, P. 7) Related examples to this include a chest attributed to Peter Blin and illustrated in Maynard, Henry P., Connecticut Furniture: Seventh and eighteenth Centuries. Hartford 1967, fig. 15, p. 11; a chest with similarly elongated pendant lobes on the split-balusters and illustrated in the The Girl Scout Loan Exhibition, New York, 1929, no. 504 (owed by Mrs. Francis P.

Simeon Jocelin 1746-1823 most likely was apprenticed to Isaac Doolittle and first appeared in business in 1768 pursuing the trade until 1776 at which point the revolution made the demand for clocks limited. Jocelin turned to other interests such as manufacturing salt and watch crystals. Jocelin followed other pursuits until 1790, at which time, he re-opened his clock trade. In March of 1800 he received a patent for “SILENT MOVING TIMEPIECE”. With this his business prospered and Jocelin continued to make clocks until his death in 1823.

RARE 1805 CHARLESTON PORTER SLAVE HIRE BADGE NO. 61. A slightly convex octagonal tag with a hole at the top for suspension. A “C. PRINCE” hallmark is punched on the back, likely for Charleston silversmith Charles Prince. The elements on the front are as follows (top to bottom): “CHARLESTON” in a crescent-shaped bar punch; “No” in a square punch followed by an incuse “61” in individual punches; “PORTER” in a rectangular punch; and “1805” bar punched (the 5 is lightly struck). The Charleston Times notes that 1354 badges were sold in the fiscal year 1804-1805. Since no badges for 1804 have been confirmed, most of this total would have been dated 1805. This year (and the next) marked a change in the law and the dating method of slave-hire badges. From that point forward, they were issued to be worn for a calendar year, not a fiscal year. SIZE: 2-1/2″ h x 2-1/4″ w. CONDITION: Very good with some use dents, light green verdigris on parts, generally very good. 9-91633 (5,000-7,000)

FABULOUS CHARLESTON, SOUTH CAROLINA SLAVE TAG. Charleston, South Carolina, was the only city in the antebellum South to issue these tags or badges which had to be worn by any slave that was “hired out”. Each year a slave owner who hired out a slave had to pay a tax and the slave had to wear a tag proving the tax had been paid. The greater the skill and training required, the greater the tax. We have offered several great groupings of slave tags in past auctions and now we offer a very rare 1848 “Charleston Neck” servant’s tag. “Charleston Neck” was an outer portion of the city of Charleston which issued their own tags only from 1848 to 1850. Tags from this first year are the rarest and only a handful of tags from “Charleston Neck” are known during their entire production. This tag was excavated near Charleston, South Carolina, by metal detectors and are among the best example of any known. SIZE: 2″ x 2″. CONDITION: Tag has green patina with background of light colored soil. There are two bend lines seen above and below the word “SERVANT” on this tag that have been flattened and conserved. 9-92101 (5,000-8,000)

FABULOUS EARLY AMERICAN SILK EMBROIDERED SAILOR’S JUMPER. This early to mid 19th Century sailor’s blouse is thought to date circa 1830-1840. This Summer weight jumper is totally hand stitched. The blue trimmed panels have fabulous silk designs applied most likely by a sailor at sea and falls into the category of “sailor art”. Sailors had so much time on their hands that they produced wonderful pieces of folk art, including scrimshaw, carvings and rare embroidery work such as this. In our research we can find only one similarly adorned object and that is a pair of pants and seabag at Winterthur but of much later date, circa 1860. There have been other early 19th C. embroidered Naval pieces described in the Smithsonian collection, but we could not find actual images. As can be seen in photos, the workmanship is meticulous and detailed. Each cuff, which has 7-1/2″ x 5″ blue panels, is embroidered with a 10-pointed star above a fluted anchor with rope and two 5-pointed stars on either side. The blue panel is trimmed with floral edged borders, as are all the other trimmed panels. The front “bib” is about 8″ across and 9″ tall with a 4-1/4″ spread winged eagle holding an olive branch in one talon and an American flag on staff in his beak. There are three 10-pointed stars and two 5-pointed stars also in this panel. Panels on shoulder trim are about 3″ wide and 8″ long with central devise of fluted anchor and rope over a flagstaff with Liberty cap holding a furled American flag. Also in each of these panels on shoulders are three 5-pointed stars. The back “fall”, which is a 7″ x 17″ panel, has a central devise over 6″ wide and 5″ tall that incorporates the patriotic shield with red and white stripes with two flags on poles on either side and a large spread winged eagle flying above and seven 5-pointed stars in arch above eagle. Each corner of this “fall” has a 10-pointed star above a fluted anchor bordered, as is all the trim, by the repeated floral rope seen throughout the design. This is truly a marvelous piece of American folk art that would grace the finest museum displays anywhere. SIZE: As indicated above. CONDITION: Very good to fine overall. There are scattered stains and several small holes in cotton blouse. The blue cotton panels still retain good strong color, as can be seen in photos. Blouse retains orig Mother of Pearl buttons on cuffs and five small orig Mother of Pearl buttons are found on “bib” (number of buttons on Naval jumpers often denote sailor’s rating or station). Silk embroidery was once brightly multi-colored. When studied under blacklight the red stripes on the flag and shield and blue of the cantons can be determined much easier. Still much detail is visible in the faded colors, as can be seen in photos. Embroidery is mostly intact, however there are reductions, especially in the simulated rope borders that contain the repeating floral vine design, with most reductions seen on cuffs and on left border design of rear “fall”. Other areas of missing embroidery are seen, including a 1/2″ x 1/4″ reduction in the right wing of eagle on “fall”. 8-76332 (9,000-12,000)
