RARE ABRAHAM LINCOLN POLITICAL BANNER FROM THE JESSE K. DUBOIS FAMILY. Circa 1864. A double tail, cotton, chevron-shaped hanging banner with a three-quarter bust portrait of a young Abraham Lincoln in the center. Depicted at a younger age with short hair and beard, white shirt, black bow tie and black coat above the slogan. “The Preserver of our Country/1861”, within a blue border containing 70 five-pointed stars. N.B. It is general consensus of several experts consulted by the family in determining the authenticity of this banner that while it is absolutely authentic and of the period with solid provenance, there are some curious characteristics centering around the date on the banner. Based on certain known photographs of Lincoln, the consensus for a date closer to 1864 is felt more appropriate. Also supporting this later date is the use of “The Preserver of our Country (or Nation)”. This slogan was not used in respect to Lincoln until approximately 1863 in preparation for the second term election. One other similar banner is known to exist in a private New England collection (The Frank & Virginia Williams Lincolnian Collection) and is illustrated in “Collecting Lincoln” by Stewart Schneider on page 55. It is thought by one expert that the Lincoln portrait on this banner may have been taken from an Anthony Burger photograph, of February 1864, used on the five dollar bill. The Dubois family home in Springfield, Illinois is today a part of the Lincoln Homestead site of the National Park Service. SIZE: Banner 37″l x 24-1/4″w, now mounted in a museum quality modern frame 49-1/2″ x 36-1/4″. PROVENANCE: By descent through the family of Jesse K. Dubois (1811-1876), personal friend, political contemporary, and neighbor of Abraham and Mary Todd Lincoln. It is purported that the banner was a gift from Mary Todd Lincoln to Adelia Morris Dubois, wife of Jesse. It was then passed to their daughter Susan, later Susan Adams (1833-1874) then to her daughter Agnes Adams (d. 1923), later Agnes Huntington who then passed it to her daughter Agnes Huntington who later became Agnes Huntington Rossbacher who gifted the banner to her grandson. CONDITION: The banner with some fraying along the edges, generally water staining throughout with accompanying mild discoloration and with three horizontal folding creases. Otherwise in very good condition considering early lack of preservation and the fact that this was most likely a functioning campaign banner. 9-96292 (50,000-75,000)

EXTRAORDINARY WASHINGTON FAMILY SILK EMBROIDERY. Second half 18th century, probably Fredericksburg, Virginia. This silkwork wrought by Mildred Gregory Washington (1777-1805), daughter of Charles Washington and niece of General George Washington. Mildred Gregory Washington, second wife of Captain Thomas Hammond of Charles Town, Jefferson County, Virginia was married until her death in 1804/05. Capt. Thomas Hammond then married Nancy Newton Collins in 1807, retaining the silkwork within their family. Their son, George Washington Hammond married Sarah Ann Taylor, retaining the silkwork in their family. Their daughters were Florinda Jones Hammond (1846-1922) and Mary Mildred Hammond (1836-1933). Mary Mildred Sillivan (nee Hammond) took stewardship of the silkwork. Subsequently she gifted the silkwork to her niece, Elizabeth Tilford Keferstein (1874-1941), daughter of Florinda Hammond Tilford and John Boyle Tilford, Jr. A family quilt exists, fashioned over a period of 6 years by the three wives of Captain Thomas Hammond including Mildory Gregory Washington and Nancy Newton Collins. The silk and chenille embroidered picture depicting a young woman in a fitted pale blue jacket with dark trim, with a brimmed cap, wearing a blue and gold striped full length skirt and black shoes, holding a hay rake in her right hand. She is facing a young man in blue jacket with white trousers and leggings, black shoes with buckles and seated on a haystack beside a seated dog, holding a pitchfork, all on a grassy foreground. They are positioned beneath a large central willow tree, a bird flying within. The middle ground with spotted pig, fence, and small farmhouse. Rendered overall in muted and subdued tones of golds, silvers, greens and blues. This rare folk art rendition with similarities to the rural themes seen in the “Fishing Lady” embroideries of Boston and also with regional characteristics of rural Virginia, Frederick County in the 18th century. References: The Algernon Sydney Sullivan Collection of family documents from the Stewart Bell Jr. Archives Room, Handley Regional Library, Winchester-Frederick County Historical Society, Winchester, Virginia.

Correction: Book consists of actual algae samples NOT watercolors

INTERESTING & IMPORTANT SMALL SCRAPBOOK OF ALGAE WATERCOLORS ATTRIBUTED TO ANNA ATKINS. Anna Atkins (1799-1871) was an English botanist and photographer. She was the first person to publish a book illustrated exclusively with photographic images. She self-published the book British Algae: Cyanotype Impressions. This book has a leather cover with gold embossed trim titled “Algae”. It is inscribed on the inside in period writing “Charles Putnam – A birth-day token from his AFFte (affectionate) Aunt Anna Feb 9, 1850”. Lower on the page “Nantucket, Mass”. It was known that she worked in New England during this time period. The book has tipped-in twenty 3-1/2″ x 4″ watercolors of different algae. There are no other markings whatsoever. We have been unable to confirm the link between Charles Putnam and Anna Atkins, but it seems by the inscription that this is either a family member or someone very close i.e. the word “affection”. The other key is the inscription “Aunt Anna” on an early book that deals with algae supports the attribution. SIZE: 6-3/4″ x 6-3/4″. CONDITION: Binding has water and mold damage. Inside watercolors are very good. The tissue paper with foxing. 9-96981 (3,000-5,000)

IMPORTANT SCRIMSHAW TUSK FROM NAPOLEONIC WARS. 1st quarter 19th century. This rare British example traces two military campaigns. The first carvings depict the “TERRITORY OF CALCUTTA” with a rendition of Fort William on the “RIVER HOOSLEY” (Hooghly). Next is a depiction of a large fort with British flag and the names “ASSAYE” and “MOHAULPORT”. The battle of Assaye, September 23, 1803, was part of the Second Mahratta War in India; Mohaulport is a village where a battle was fought on November 1, 1803. Both were part of the Anglo-Mahratta campaigns. The central section of the tusk is scrimmed with the symbol of King George III, an officer on horseback brandishing a sabre and the name “SIR ARTHUR WELLESLEY” (1769-1852), the first Duke of Wellington, and a British officer in command of British troops during the Anglo-Mahratta campaigns. The next panel depicts two soldiers facing each other, separated by the name “ALEPPI” (also India). The last panel is scrimmed with the names “CORUNNA” and “ROLICA” centering a church. The Battle of Rolica in Portugal was fought on August 11, 1808; the Battle of Corunna in northwest Spain was fought on January 16, 1809. Both battles were part of the Napoleonic Wars and both were under the command of Lieutenant General Arthur Wellesley. The name “SGT. A. BOTHAMLEY” and “45TH FOOT” are lightly scrimmed on the reverse of the tusk. At the time of cataloging, we were unable to locate archival records for an A. Bothamley, 45th Foot, in the aforementioned campaigns. We did find an Arthur Thomas Bothamley, 24th Foot, in India in 1844. SIZE: 28″ l. PROVENANCE: From a private collection.
