LARGE AUTOGRAPHED BRADY CABINET IMAGE OF GEN. U.S. GRANT. This autographed image of Grant depicts him in full uniform outside of his tent leaning on a tree. This famous image was taken by Brady at Cold Harbor, VA in June, 1864. Just a short while after Abraham Lincoln had promoted him to Lt. Gen. of all US armies (March 12, 1864). Grant had continually exhibited his ability to fight, but also to win. At the time Lincoln was desperate for a leader who would not only coalesce his military, but could likely expedite the defeat of the Confederacy. Despite numerous criticisms regarding Grant, Lincoln stuck to his decision and Grant not only defeated the Confederacy but after the war was held in such high esteem by the nation, that he was eventually elected President (a position he did not personally pursue). Card marked “Brady” at lower left below the image and to the right below the image “Washington”. The card is autographed below the image “US Grant” and below it “Lt Gen..” last word is not clear but appears to be US Army. SIZE: Card is 7-3/4″ w x approx. 10-3/4″ h. Image only is 5″ w x 7-1/4″ h. CONDITION: Image is slightly faded. Autograph is strong and distinct. Card is generally in excellent condition. 9-21896 (9,000-12,000)

Starting on January 7, 1765 in the middle of the Stamp Act controversy, Boston shopkeeper, Harbottle Dorr took the current issue of the Boston Evening Post and commented on its contents in the margins. Every week thereafter, for 12 years, he accumulated the papers totaling an astonishing 3,280 pages in four volumes. We are selling volume IV of a four volume set, the first three being housed at the Massachusetts Historical Society. This volume having a 70+ page hand written index cross referencing the articles and events. It is an amazing and unique look at the Revolutionary Era in New England. The volume contains the July 18, 1776 issue of the printing of the Declaration of Independence. One of the most historical collections of Revolutionary period Boston newspapers to come to the market. 1265 numbered pages in this 4-1/2″ thick bound volume. The newspapers represented are: Boston Gazette & Country Journal; The Boston Evening Post; The Massachusetts Gazette and Boston Post-Boy and The Advertiser; The Massachusetts Gazette and The Boston Weekly News-Letter; The Essex Gazette; The New-England Chronicle or The Essex Gazette; The New England Chronicle; The Continental Journal & Weekly Advertiser. Mr. Dorr, on the first page, presents, in his hand, introduction as follows: “This vol. has a very deformed body, but a beautiful soul. N.B. On reviewing this volume, I find some words in the margins, & index misspelt, which I hope whoever peruses will excuse especially as some of them were wrote at my shop amidst my business, when I had no leisure to be exact.” and “…I have thought it worth while to collect them, “tho” at considerable expense, and VERY GREAT TROUBLE, in hopes that in future, they may be of some service, towards forming a POLITICAL history of this country, during the shameful and abandoned administration of George the Third’s despotic ministry.”. Followed by a 70 page hand written index. Attached to the back of the index is a folded invoice/order dated 1773 for the months of October, November and December from Mr. Joshua Pico to William Bant indicating at the bottom “By an order in full for the above from the Hon. John Hancock, Esq.” additionally signed “Edward Dowse”. The first newspaper being The Boston Gazette & Country Journal, No. 874 Monday, January 6, 1772 and ending with The Continental Journal & Weekly Advertiser, No. XXXI Thursday, December 26, 1776.

This run of newspapers printed during the most critical years of the formation of our independence provides a very special and comprehensive insight into the day to day happenings. In addition, Mr. Dorr’s extensive and intimate comments are a true reflection of the “man on the street”. Boston was one of the hearts of the rebel movement and Dorr’s shop generated a daily flow of Boston residents who not only did business with Dorr but continually shared their feelings and opinions on the matters of the day which, in part, are surly reflected here in Dorr’s commentary. A most important historical American document. Dorr’s collection of annotated newspapers, to our knowledge, are the only documents of this type from this period known to exist! SIZE: 16-1/2” x 10-1/4” x 4-1/2”. PROVENANCE: Bangor Museum and Center for History, Maine.

G. ROBITZER (American, 19th/20th Century) THE OWL CLUB. Oil on canvas interior scene shows a man seated in a red leather armchair in a library setting. He holds a quill pen in one hand while the other hand grasps his crossed leg. His head is larger than life accentuated like a caricature. He is being addressed by a small thin oriental man holding his hat in one hand and a large ledger book titled “APPLICANT FOR ADMISSION” in his other hand. Beside the red leather chair is a red leather book titled “RECORDS OF THE OWL CLUB”; also there is a large brown owl between the chair and the book. In the background are bookcases laden with books and atop two of the bookcases are perched two owls. At a library table with bookcases below is seen a distinguished gentleman seated reading a book. NOTE: This scene may represent a depiction of Harry Elkins Widener (1885-1912). He was a 1907 graduate of Harvard College, where he was a member of the Owl Club. In April of 1912 he and his mother and father boarded the ill fated RMS Titanic at Cherbourg, France bound for New York City. After the ship struck an iceberg, his father placed his mother and her maid in a lifeboat; the women were eventually rescued by the steamship Carpathia. Henry Elkins Widener and his father both went down with the ship and their bodies were never recovered. His widowed mother built the Harry Elkins Widener library, the largest university library in the world, in his memory. She also bought a house in Watertown for Lieut. Col. William V. Cote of the English Military and Naval Veterans of Massachusetts and Rhode Island who was the steward of the Owl Club of Harvard University. One of the club’s most famous members was Edward M. Kennedy (‘54-’56). The club is currently housed at 30 Holyoke Street in Cambridge. It was founded in 1896 as a secret society under the Greek name for Pipe and Mug. In 1897, the club moved to a house at 97 Mt. Auburn Street, changed its name to Phi Delta Psi and abandoned its status as a secret society. The club moved into its current location in 1906 and changed its name to the Owl Club in 1916. PROVENANCE: From a fine Massachusetts home.

WILLIAM HOWARD YORKE (American, 1847-1921) PORTRAIT OF THE BARK “MAITLAND”. Outstanding oil on canvas ship portrait of the three-mast, black hulled bark “Maitland” sailing right to left with eight men on deck. Sails are full and it sails through green, white tipped ocean. A painted title legend at center bottom “Maitland af Fredriksjold”. A series of flags adorn the masts. Signed lower left “W H Yorke 1901”. Housed in its original gesso decorated gilt & ebonized frame. The ship’s name is emblazoned on a pennant atop the mainmast and a ship is seen off bow & stern. This ship was built in 1871 on Selmah Creek, near Maitland, Nova Scotia, and named after that town. Maitland, NS at that time was a premier site in the boat building industry in the province, and that tradition is still celebrated today. Ships built in Maitland, NS at that time were prized all over the world, both because of the skill of the craftsmen who built them, and for the Bay of Fundy spruce that was used in their construction, selected for its combination of lightness and durability. In an unusual gesture, the Norwegian buyers in 1878 retained the name “Maitland”, rather than changing it. By 1901, the “Maitland” had been owned by several Norwegian parties, who still retained the name of origin. It was one of the last captains of the ship, Soren Gundersen, who commissioned William H. Yorke, a renowed maritime artist, to paint this portrait. A 10-page history of the painting and its relevance to Nova Scotia shipbuilding accompanies the painting. SIZE: 20″ x 30″. PROVENANCE: Descended through a single family for over 100 years. CONDITION: Very good with some craquelure. 9-22631 (6,000-9,000)

UNUSUAL REGENCY MAHOGANY DROP LEAF EXTENSION TABLE. Circa 1800. This rare example with rectangular one-board top fitted with D-form single board hinged leaves, all with reeded edges. The top, with leaves extended swiveling on the rectangular molded frieze. Each end fitted with a simulated escutcheon locking mechanism within molding simulating frieze drawer. When released the ends of the frieze extend on wood runners. The whole on ring turned bulbous supports raised on downswept reeded molded saber legs with brass capped casters. Note: The underside of the top and leaves are fitted for brass clips. The heavy brass hinges are screwed into the leaves. The top is fitted with cutout space to accept the hinge flange.

The assumption is therefore, that when in the down position, the leaves are maintained in place simply by the hinge’s pressure upon the apron. The leaves are then removed when the top is turned and remounted on the supporting apron when used as an extended table. The top and leaves are then connected by the brass clips. SIZE: 29″ h x 29″ w (closed) x 55-1/2″ l; 70″ w (extended). PROVENANCE: From a fine Massachusetts home. CONDITION: Structurally very good with all original parts.

RARE AND IMPORTANT PINE AND OAK KNEADING TABLE. Early 18th century. The thick pine five-board top, each seam with a butterfly tenon above the square frieze and joined by sliding brackets attached to the top and the frieze. As such, the top slides above the frieze opening to a compartmented well revealing an original receptacle for a lock, now absent. The underside of the top displays the area where the original lock engaged the top to prevent it from opening. The square frieze section of dovetailed construction decorated on three sides with scrolled fielded panels above a molded plinth. This section is then joined on dowels to a shaped and scalloped trestle base. The trestle base with scalloped and shaped edges again joined by square trusses fixed by wedges and centering a decorative panel with molded edges and pierced heart. This trestle base is additionally fitted with a single drawer with canted sides conforming to the shape of the table. The drawer front is also decorated with a pair of scrolled fielded panels. The whole constructed with exposed dovetails. The drawer retains the original iron strap backing for the original pull which is now absent. The base of the feet is joined by flat mortised shelf-like stretchers. SIZE: 30″ h x 41-1/2″ l x 35-1/2″ d. PROVENANCE: Purchased by the current owner from a family in Brooklyn Heights, NY in the middle part of the 20th century. For similar examples see “Furniture of the Pilgrim Century” by Wallace Nutting, pgs 355 & 366. CONDITION: The top scrubbed and with added splices to correct shrinkage at seams of top. The interior of the well with compartments probably added in the 19th or early 20th century. The base appears to retain all original elements. As previously stated, lock is now missing as is the handle of the drawer. Minimal insect damage noted primarily in one board on side of frieze. Trusses and wedges appear original. There is an addition of approximately 1″ on the base of each trestle section to compensate for early wear and/or dry rot from dampness. These additions appear to be 19th century at the latest.
