Two other noteworthy artworks are a watercolor-on-paper rendering by Red Grooms (Am., b. 1937) titled, Corsica, and depicting five figures on a boat in the Mediterranean Sea, framed and dated (“7/24/94”), and an oil painting by the Russian-born French artist Oscar Rabin (b. 1928) titled, Champagne in Fall Landscape (1987), showing a bottle of champagne on a picnic blanket.

Name This Famous Person: Shirley

By Mike McLeod

“I class myself with Rin Tin Tin. People in the Depression wanted something to cheer them up, and they fell in love with a dog and a little girl.” On February 10th of this year, Shirley Temple Black passed away at the age of 85. Child star, child legend, Shirley Temple is credited by many for keeping hope alive during the Great Depression. Even Pres. Franklin D. Roosevelt said of her, “As long as our country has Shirley Temple, we will be all right.” On April 23, 1928 in Santa Monica, California, Shirley was born into the family of George and Gertrude Temple. She had two older brothers. Her mother is credited with beginning her daughter’s career by taking her to dancing, acting and singing lessons where she was spotted by a casting director. After a few minor roles, she was signed by Fox Films Corporation and acted in Stand Up and Cheer! in 1934, which launched her stellar career. Her next movies were Little Miss Marker and Now and Forever while on loan to Paramount. Little Miss Marker ran

Temple

for three weeks in New York City, and in that city alone, it grossed more than $100,0001, about $1.8 million today. After this, her salary was elevated to $1,250 per week2, which is equal to about $22,000 per week today. Not bad for a six year old. Without a doubt, she was worth every penny of it. “By the end of 1934, aged six, she was the eighth biggest draw in America.”3 She also earned a miniature Academy Award that year for her performances. “I stopped believing in Santa Claus when I was six. Mother took me to see him in a department store, and he asked for my autograph.” In 1936, two of Shirley Temple’s movies, Dimples and Stowaway, made $1 million each ($16.8 million today) in the U.S. alone. On the strength of her talent, Metro-GoldwynMayer tried to get Shirley Temple for the role of “Dorothy” in The Wizard of Oz. Fox turned down the offer and instead cast her in Susannah of the Mounties, which was a successful movie for her. Yet, Judy Garland went on to have a successful movie career as an adult while Shirley Temple did not. “I’m not too proud of the movies I made as a grownup except for That Hagen Girl, which nobody remembers but which gave me a chance to act.” Shirley Temple ended her acting career in her early twenties after the viewing public had difficulties in seeing the child star grow up. She did star in a few movies including The Bachelor and the Bobby-Soxer with Cary Grant and Fort Apache with John Wayne and her first husband John Agar. However, her film career ended in 1949. She transitioned to TV for a while with Shirley Temple’s Storybook, which aired 12 episodes from 1958 to 1961. Shirley married John Agar when she was 17, and they had Memories Flea Antique Mall.05.11_SEA one child a few years later. They were divorced in 1949. In 1950, she married Charles Black who earned the Silver Star in the Navy during World War II and who served again during the Korean War. They had two children and remained married until his death in 2005.

Provenance: this lot was in the family quarters of the White House during the Kennedy’s residence. Sotheby’s, New York auction “Property From Kennedy Family Homes” NO8068, lot 380, reference page 232 of catalogue. Acquired by the most recent owner at the above auction Feb.16, 2005. Height, 68.5 inches, width, 47.75 inches, depth, 22 inches; circa 1850-1855. Original Sotheby’s catalogue included as evidence of provenance. (Photo: eBay seller springcreekantiques77.)

By Mike McLeod and Deborah Abernethy $2,550 (150 bids): John F. Kennedy Antique Painted Armoire. John F. Kennedy antique painted Swiss armoire having an architectural molded cornice with canted front corners above a frieze centered by the painted date “1853”, the lower cabinet of conforming shape, centered by a full paneled cupboard door opening to a fitted interior. The armoire is allover painted with faux wood graining, marbling and flowering urns. This beautiful painted armoire was purchased by my father from the Caroline Kennedy auction featuring antiques from a number of their properties and liquidated by Sotheby’s as described below. Total purchase after buyer’s premium was over $23,000! Armoire was acquired exhibiting moderate wear. There is a piece of missing molding on the upper right side of item. Some cracking of the wood is seen on the front upper/top molding section. Some wear is visible on the front panel, but hard to see as it is hidden in the middle of the urns. And there are some worn places on the paint along the bottom of the front and side panels. One interesting thing is that there is pencil writing on the inside of the cabinet door which I assume was by the artist, but I can’t make it out. Still, a beautiful piece of art and wonderful colors that would be an outstanding addition to any collector.

DBA: Oh, my! From $23,000 at auction to $2,550 on eBay is quite a difference in price. I think that sometimes buying at auction is more of a party. Here is an excerpt from Maureen Callahan’s article about the auction in the New York Post: “In 1996, two years after Jackie Kennedy Onassis died of cancer, Caroline and her brother John, Jr. put the bulk of their mother’s estate up for auction. Mixed in with the oil paintings and jewels was JFK’s hat box (worth $100, sold for $31,625), a foot stool (worth $150, sold for $33,350) and one of Jackie’s lamps (worth $900, sold forCollum $48,875). Even the doors from Jackie’s Ants.10.2009_SEA White House dressing room were ripped off their hinges and put on the block.”

This auction sounds more like a party than buyers working to get a good deal. With the story behind this (White House setting, JFK ownership), I would say the buyer got a deal. This is more a memorabilia category item rather than furniture, especially with the damage listed and the object not so old. $2,948 (24 bids): 20th C. German Neresheimer Solid Silver gilt Wager Cup, London, c. 1905. Antique early 20th century stunning German Hanau solid silver wager/marriage cup, extremely large, richly gilt; the cup has the look of a noble girl supporting over her head a domed, smaller swiveling cup unusually shaped as a shell. The cup chased, composing beautiful floral patterns on the elaborated dress. The silver wager cup was created for use in wedding banquets, where the spouse drank wine from the bigger cup and offered his

bride to drink from the smaller, avoiding pouring out even a drop of its contents. (The smaller cup rotates 180 degrees.) This piece is hallmarked German Hanau silver, between the late 19th century and 1905. Maker’s marks Neresheimer & Co, one of the most important Hanau silversmiths. (Photo: eBay seller pushkin.antiques, www. pushkinantiques.com, www.stores. ebay.co.uk/Pushkin-Antiques-Ltd.)

Shops of St. Petersburg. .“The Jewel of Florida’s Gulf Coast” Daytona Shops_Grp.01.10_SEA

There's an old saying about St. Petersburg, Fla.; People who live there love it; businesses that located there stay; and visitors who go there to shop and play want to come back again and again. How true! St. Petersburg and Pinellas County offer an unequaled environment for work and play. Wonderful weather and miles of sandy beaches make it a magnet for people worldwide. St. Petersburg's two strongest selling points are sunshine and shopping. The former can be enjoyed virtually year-round; the latter comes in the form of malls, factory outlet stores, discount chains, specialty shops, membership warehouses, and —oh, yes— a cavalcade of wonderful antiques and collectibles stores. The advertisers on this page offer a taste of what we mean.

Getting to St. Petersburg isn't hard to do. The city's major thoroughfare is I-275, which runs north and south and connects to the Sunshine Skyway Bridge and Manatee County (another mecca for shoppers on the antique trail). I-275 also connects with 1-4 going east to Orlando from Tampa and I-75 heading north. U.S. 19 is an important north-south link that runs the length of the county. A visit to St. Petersburg will leave you wanting more, no matter how long you stay. And it's easy to fan out and explore. Tampa — a city with it's own identity, cultural pulse and antiques and collectibles shops—is right next door. And Orlando, with its many theme parks, is a short drive away. Don't you think it's time to visit, vacation and shop in St. Petersburg? It's truly the Jewel of Florida's Gulf Coast!

The Shops of Austell, Georgia You’re all invited to Austell, the loveliest town in Georgia, founded in 1855 and located just north and west of Atlanta, next to Marietta, in the heart of a small historic area of Cobb County. Many people know us for little more than the flood of 2009, from which the town has made a complete and remarkable recovery. But Austell is so much more than that, and definitely worth the drive.

We have four antique shops, several boutiques, nice restaurants (like Wallace’s Pit-Cooked BBQ)and more, all convenient to one another. Like many small Georgia towns, Austell takes Sundays and Mondays off, but if you’re in the area between Tuesday and Saturday we are a must visit. We’re a hop, skip and a jump from I-20, west of Six Flags. Come on out. We’d love to see you soon!

of money for Pisgah Forest Art Pottery, but this glaze is the signature color/type and is the first you see on the Pisgah Forest Art Pottery website. While other Pisgah Forest pottery will sell for much less, the crystalline glaze consistently sells for more money than the other types.

This is a fair deal for both buyer and seller. $8,100 (62 bids): HMS Invincible Ship’s Logbook, Revolutionary War 1780-1782 Battles. The HMS Invincible had an important role in the American Revolutionary War. The inside cover of this 18th century ship’s log reads, “A Journal of the Proceedings of his Majesty’s Ship the Invincible. Kept by John Grigg &&& Charles Saxson Esq. Commander Commencing on y 29 of Nov 1780 and ending y 10 Day of July 1782.” The HMS Invincible was launched in 1765 and served the Royal Navy during the Revolutionary War until it shipwrecked in March 1801. This log consists of 23 large pieces of handmade paper folded into 23 pages. Each piece of paper is watermarked with the name “I. Taylor” on one page and a crest with a man on a horse holding a spear on the opposite. The outer shape of the crest mark has a crown on the top, resembling many examples of Royal watermarks that we found while doing research. The original soft cover is still with the log and in very good condition, although no longer attached. On the left hand pages there are several columns stating the day, location and other information. The righthand pages are labeled “Remarks” and have descriptions of the days recorded in the log. The pages are all complete and in very good condition, aside from some toning and foxing spots. I have been trying to get into the way John Grigg writes, and I know with practice the high bidder will be able to read all the details of this 74-gun British Man of War. The two most important years of this ship were between January 16, 1780 when it fought the battle Cape St. Vincent through September 5, 1781 and ending with her last battle at Saint Kitts, also known as the Battle of Frigate Bay, on January 25 and 26, 1782. All these battles took place during the writing of the ship’s log, and there are written accounts found on those days. I am not going to get into every detail, but not only are the battles described, but there are many interesting “remarks” pertaining to the crew and officers on all the other

days. I found references to flogging, sickness and other interesting facts. This is a very important ship’s log, and I’m sure there is important information in it about the Invincible and the battles she took part in that are unknown.

been previously published, which could make a difference in the value of such information. My thought with this type of historical document is the potential commercial use since there would not be a copyright issue. I did write about a series of Civil War Era letters last in the April 2013 edition of this magazine. Those letters from a school teacher brought almost $4,000. This document is much older and with the Revolutionary War connection would have added interest. ---------------Deborah Abernethy is a certified appraiser with the International Association of Appraisers.

Civil War Collector The

By John Sexton

This Ulysses S. Grant photo was given to be by my good friend who has passed away. It says Grant and his staff are standing on Lookout Point on Lookout Mountain, Tenn., in May 1863. It was purchased by his grandparents on May 9, 1900. A souvenir cabinet card JS: Your photo is a form of of General U.S. Grant and photograph known as a cabinet his officers at Lookout card. This style of photography Mountain, Tenn., about was popular in the late 19th $200. century, and this particular photograph was sold as a souvenir on Lookout Mountain in 1900, as stated in the inscription on the back of card. The original photograph was taken in 1863, and this view is a photographic copy. There are many views taken by a particular photographer on this overlook on Lookout Mountain, including several with U.S. Grant who was said to have observed part of the “Battle in the Skies” from this vantage point. Similar cabinet cards sell for about $200.

John, I happened to come across your website for appraisals of Civil War items. Recently, my parents passed away, and my father has a sword that he told me was from the Civil War, and it was Confederate. I was looking online and came across a description and pictures of what appears to be what my father has, a Boyle & Gamble foot officer sword with a scarce metal scabbard. Also, here’s a picture of a canteen and another item. JS: Your sword is indeed of the Civil War Era and could easily have been carried by a Confederate officer, but just as easily by a Union officer. It is not made in the Confederacy, but appears to be an import from either France or Germany for the American market. The pattern of your sword is a US model 1850 foot officer’s sword, which was regulation both for U.S. and C.S. for a company grade officer. Since the blade etch shows no specific American motifs, we can’t say for sure it was Union, but Confederate-used import foot swords are most unusual, and we don’t have an ironclad ID. Regardless, this is a nice example of an “as found” regulation foot officer’s sword with the original silk sash tied to the hilt, as is often found among surviving swords. The blade etch appears still bright with some luster. The sharkskin grip and twisted-wire wrap appear in fine condition. The scabbard is complete, showing just a few bends and weaknesses and leather body, but the brass mounts are complete and well fit with matching patina to the sword hilt. This sword and sash, if I was estimating for auction, I would give it a presale estimate of $800-$1,200 and expected to sell in that range. Your canteen is a regulation Civil War Era “bull’s-eye” pewter throat. The cloth cover looks a bit unusual and light and may be added (could possibly have been used by reenactor); however, it could be original. If it is original, the canteen and

strap will sell for about $300. The powder flask is for a shotgun; there were numerous makers and types dating between 1850 and1870. A similar flask with good varnish like this one will retail for about $75, unless it has some special maker’s mark.

I found this rifle in a barn sale. The barrel and lock plate are quite rusty, and the barrel is 30 inches long. All fittings are brass. There is a number (T-Y1207) stamped into the butt plate. Would you be able to give me more information on this rifle? JS: Your gun is certainly English, based on a pattern 1839 or earlier. Based on close-ups sent of the lockplate, this gun appears to have originally been a flintlock and converted to percussion. The conversion appears to be a braised bolster breech, which is typical of work done on American guns at the beginning of the Civil War. The 30-inch barrel suggests this is some sort of non-regulation “Miners and Sappers,” militia or constabulary gun. English contractors exported guns worldwide and were major arms merchants. The lack of visible markings on the barrel or lock makes it difficult to ascertain any history or possible use of this weapon. The gun appears to be fairly complete though missing hammer and ramrod, which could be restored. Similar, complete English militia rifles of this era sell between about $500-$1,000. I would expect your incomplete gun to fetch $100-$300 in auction. An incomplete English pattern 1839 flintlockconverted-to- percussion rifle, $100-$300.

There’s NO PLACE Like JErE’s!

33,000 square foot warehouse in Savannah.

All of our merchandise is truly priced for the wholesale trade. Whether you seek a period linen press or an Art Deco Vanity, we have it all. Looking for a home or commercial bar? We have it all.

Whether you deal in oak, mahogany, walnut or pine, we have it all.

There are very few importers left and even fewer still who can sell at a true wholesale price. And not many maintain a large inventory of good, clean, saleable merchandise. There are very few that have a large turnover of merchandise. There are very few that unload on a regular basis. There is no one like Jere’s Antiques.

Come see why we set the standard for importers of fine European furniture. www.jeresantiques.com Fax: (912) 236-0274 • Email: jeresantiques@bellsouth.net Read the Southeastern Antiquing Magazine at www.antiquingmagazine.com --and tell your friends.

Name This Famous Antique: Flowing Hair Dollar, the $10 Million Coin By Mike McLeod

Sherry Blanton, Ted Carlton of Utah and Sherron Lawson of Roswell, Ga., correctly identified the coin that was sold for $10,016,875 (including buyer’s premium), the highest price paid thus far. The 1794 Flowing Hair dollar was the first minted by the United States Government. It was engraved by Robert Scot to represent Liberty, as the title above her head so says. The coin’s face bears 15 stars representing the 15 states in the Union at that time. All 1,758 of the coins minted were struck on Oct. 15, 1794, and about 135 still exist today. So why was this particular coin so valuable? Aside from it being the first silver coin series minted, it was uncirculated, and it shows no die imperfections as its sisters do, meaning this coin was struck early, if not first. The scratch marks and silver plug (the darker spot under the ear) are signs of weight adjustments to meet the U.S. Mint’s specifications, which are also signs this coin was early or first in the series. In addition, there is the possibility that it may have been touched by George Washington or other Founding Fathers since it was one of the first U.S. dollars minted. Steven Contursi of Rare Coin Wholesalers purchased the coin in 2003 for $2.5 million, and he is credited with determining its rarity. He sold it in 2010 for $7.85 million to Cardinal Collection Education Foundation. Then in early 2013, Cardinal had the coin auctioned, and Legend Numismatics of New Jersey purchased it and its history for more than $10 million. Although Congress passed a law in 1792 authorizing the minting of coins, silver coins were not produced until 1794. The reason for the delay was

the law required the U.S. Mint’s chief coiner and assayer to each post a bond of $10,000 before they minted gold or silver coins—just in case they decided to abscond with the precious metals in their care. In our terms, this was asking them to come up with more than $200,000 each. Neither man could afford this so only copper coins were produced for the first two years until Congress lowered their bond requirements to $5,000 and $1,000, respectively.1 What did citizens of the new United States use for currency until 1794? The Spanish silver dollar, or peso de ocho (piece of eight), was actually the world’s reserve currency at the time, and it was commonly used in the States. In addition, Continental currency, or “continentals,” was issued by the Continental Congress and used until about 1781 when it was all but worthless. (Continentals were not backed with gold or any other valuable asset. Also, the British government counterfeited them in vast amounts.) The individual states also printed their own currencies, and individuals used trade goods or even wampum for money. Wampum (shells on strings) used by the Eastern Tribes also succumbed to deflation in value to almost nil as European traders “minted” their own wampum in record amounts. They had access to more beaches in their homelands and around the world to scour for this type of money. The terms shelling out, meaning to pay, and clams, meaning dollars, came from wampum, the shell money.2 ---------------------www.coincommunity.com. http://szabo.best.vwh.net/shell.html.

The Spanish dollar (eight real coin or piece of eight) was used as currency in the U.S. until 1857.

A $55 continental note, printed in red and black and exchangeable for “55 Spanish Milled dollars,” it says. By 1780, it was only worth about one-fortieth of its face value.

Julia’s March Firearms Auction: An Extraordinary World Record James D. Julia’s Auction House recently conducted the most extraordinary firearms auction to date. Julia’s October 2013 auction at $18 million was by far the largest gross ever realized for a firearms auction in history anywhere in the world. The March auction soundly beat it with about $19 million+ (including post-auction sales). The success of the sale was also in the 530 lots that realized in excess of $10,000, 50 lots in excess of $50,000, and 13 lots that generated $100,000 or more. From the Tommy Rholes Collection of Texas, an extremely rare iron-framed Henry SN 90, one of the top five or six known, went out at $161,000. A rare Nimschke factory engraved Colt SAA hit $129,650. A very rare nickel-plated Colt Sheriff’s model realized $80,500. From the Bill Gerber Collection of Tennessee, a rare presentation double-cased set including an 1860 Army and an 1861 Navy had been presented to General William A. Thornton by Col. Colt sold for $224,250. From the Norm Flayderman Collection, an early Civilian Colt Second Model Dragoon hit $77,650. A Belmont-Adams percussion dragoon carried an inscription to the founder of the Pony Express, Major Benjamin Franklin Ficklin, and sold for $36,800.  The Michael Leff Collection of Florida yielded an 1849

Pocket and an 1851 Navy that sold together for $51,750. The Dr. Douglas Sirkin Collection of Buffalo, N.Y., had a Martial Colt Walker C-Company #136 go for $80,500. An interesting historical lot was a pair of important silver and gold inlaid American Flintlock Dueling Pistols by James Haslett of Baltimore made for and given to Gerome Bonaparte, brother of Napoleon Bonaparte. They were a gift of his then wife, Elizabeth Patterson Bonaparte of Maryland. When they went to France, Napoleon was enraged; he had intended for his brother to marry into one of the European royal families and refused to allow Gerome admittance back into France until he rid himself from the “American hussy.” Gerome later abandoned his American wife, remarried and became King of Westphalia.  The tenth distinguished collection offered was that of the late John Houchins, avid collector of L.C. Smith shotguns and author of L.C. Smith, the Legend Lives. Mr. Houchins’ exceptionally fine A-3 L.C. Smith 12 ga. flew past the high estimate to $109,000.  The first sporting arm up for bid was an exquisite 28 ga. Boss single trigger ejector sidelock O/U game gun in near mint condition that topped out at $207,000. The very next gun, a Sublime 28 ga. Boss Sidelock Ejector single trigger side by side gun hit $136,000. A unique gold encrusted 16 ga. L.C. Smith Deluxe Grade side by side, one of only a couple ever made, sold for $207,000.  For more details, visit Julia’s website at www.jamesdjulia. com or contact Julia’s at 207-453-7125. The next major firearms auction will be in October of 2014.

The Hindenburg: A Disaster and a Miracle

by Mike McLeod

Electric lighters were used in the smoking A passenger compartment on room that was frequented by most of the the famous airship. (Photo: passengers. (Photo: airship.net.) airship.net.) Seventy-seven years ago when the 803-foot Hindenburg crashed on May 6, 1937 at the Lakehurst Naval Air Station in Lakehurst, N.J., 35 people died: 13 passengers and 22 crew (including one on the ground crew). Fortunately, on that trip there were just 36 passengers on the airship. However, 61 crewmen were on board, many of them trainees. This was an epic tragedy and a miracle at the same time—nearly two-thirds of those on board survived the inferno. On the National Postal Museum’s website1 are videos of an interview with one of the original surviving members of the ground crew describing what he saw. Also, there is actual film footage of the Hindenburg burning and radio reporter Herb Morrison’s emotional commentary of the disaster: “It’s practically standing still now. They’ve dropped ropes out of the nose of the ship,

and it’s been taken ahold of down on the field by a number of men…. It burst into flames! Get out of the way! …It’s fire and it’s crashing! It’s crashing terrible! …It’s burning, bursting into flames and is falling on the mooring mast…. This is the worst of the worst catastrophes in the world! Oh, it’s crashing... oh, four or five hundred feet into the sky, and it’s a terrific crash, ladies and gentlemen. There’s smoke, and there’s flames, now, and the frame is crashing to the ground, not quite to the mooring mast... Oh, the humanity, and all the passengers screaming around here! [Morrison begins sobbing] I can’t even talk to people.... Honest, it’s just laying there, a mass of smoking wreckage, and

everybody can hardly breathe and talk... I-I’m sorry. Honest, I can hardly breathe. I’m going to step inside where I cannot see it…. Listen folks, I’m going to have to stop for a minute, because I’ve lost my voice... This is the worst thing I’ve ever witnessed.”2

The Hindenburg: A Disaster and a Miracle Continued from Center Gloss

A burned letter carried by the Hindenburg. The 300+ letters that survived are valued at thousands of dollars. (Photo: donewithfuess.)

The Hindenburg under construction. (Photo: German Federal Archives.) on the airship’s last flight) and even a smoking room—electric lighters were used, and a double airlock door secured it from other compartments. For added safety, it was located on the bottom level so any escaping hydrogen would travel upward and away from the smoking room.5 The Hindenburg Disaster has yielded items that are collected. Kovels.com reported that a bottle of Lowenbrau beer on the airship sold for $16,000 in 2009: “The Lowenbrau bottle, still full, has a scorched label with the brand’s logo. The bottle was found by the local fire chief after the crash in Lakehurst, New Jersey. He buried six bottles and a pitcher at the site and came back later to recover his ‘treasure.’ He gave all but one of the bottles to friends. One bottle was donated to the Lowenbrau brewery collection in 1977.” Even though tickets for the Hindenburg were $450 each6 during the Depression ($7,500 today), zeppelins also made a huge income by carrying mail. The Hindenburg had more than 17,000 pieces on board when it burned, and about 40 cents was charged to carry a letter7. That was equal to about $6.66 today; as a point of reference, during the Depression, a one pound of the best steak cost 20 cents8. Just over 300 pieces of mail survived the crash and fire, and today, individual letters can sell for thousands of dollars. Some even sell for tens of thousands of dollars depending on the stamps they bear, the franking and country of origin9. Of course, with values like these, fakes have been found. Mail carried on the Hindenburg before the disaster and

Other Hindenburg items include coffee, cups, pot, silverware and even parts of the metal structure. Most are in museums or the Smithsonian, but sometimes, these items show up on eBay or in auctions. On a side note, the Hindenburg was not the worst zeppelin accident in history. The USS Akron, a rigid Navy airship, crashed off the coast of New Jersey four years before the Hindenburg on April 4, 1933. Of the 76 crew and passengers on board, 73 died, most of them from drowning and hypothermia. While flying into a storm in the dark, the Akron was hit by strong winds that forced it down toward the surface of the ocean. With damaged rudder cables, efforts to gain elevation were unsuccessful, and Akron crashed into the Atlantic. This disaster actually helped to save lives on its sister ship, the USS Macon, when it crashed in the Pacific in February of 1935. It carried lifejackets and inflatable rafts because of the Akron, and only two men died. As with many zeppelin accidents, human error was the major cause. On the Macon, structural failure punctured helium gas bags; however, it could have made it to base in this condition, except the officers and crew overcompensated by dropping ballast and increasing the engines’ power to gain lift. This propelled the airship above 4,000 feet where the low pressure sucked out too much helium for the ship to stay aloft. It drifted down into the ocean. The Hindenburg Disaster will never be forgotten, but the miracle of so many people surviving the inferno should also be remembered. ---------------------------Detailed information on the Hindenburg and other airships can be found at Airships.net. www.postalmuseum. si.edu/fireandice/videos. html. 2 Imdb.com. 3, 4, 5 Airships.net. 6 www.postalmuseum. si.edu. 7 www.slettebo.no. 8 Thepeoplehistory.com. 9 Ibid and Michel Zeppelin Specialized Catalogue 2003, by Michel. 1

Art & Antiques

by Dr. Lori 

Big Bucks for Old Books By Lori Verderame I have a lovely, scholarly sister who works as an English professor. She, better than anyone else I know, certainly is acquainted with and knowledgeable about great books. This level of education and passion is what makes someone a great book collector. My sister is not a book collector by any means, but what she knows about books can help interested collectors select the best titles for both their bedside tables and their bank accounts. Informed book collectors know which books to covet and which ones to condemn. If you want a recommendation about a great book to read, I say that your best bet is to consult with an avid reader. If you want to know about the market for a particularly great book, ask an appraiser who is an avid reader. If you want to start your own collection of fine literary masterpieces that are as interesting as they are valuable, my advice is to start reading. In this age of Nooks, Kindles, and other electronic readers, I have found over the years that the best collectors in any field are the ones who know their stuff inside and out—no matter the format. When it comes to books, knowing the field surely describes my sister. If I need the inside scoop on the best titles, she’s my “go to girl” on the topic. Whether you are interested in displaying or digesting your collection of old books, the book collector is not a thing of the past. Many people are enjoying the process of seeking out and assembling enviable libraries. Here are some tips to remember when collecting old books: 1. Books were made differently in bygone days compared to the way that they are made today. The paper used in centuries past had a high acid content and wood pulp which promotes yellowing over time. These pages can easily rip, crease, tear and discolor. Touching them repeatedly can also result in drying out your hands as you read these cherished titles. Be gentle. 2. If you are reading your old books solely for enjoyment, take care when turning the pages and when opening the cover. Don’t stress the binding by opening and closing the book too often. Books should be placed on their side, not upright upon a shelf. 3. Use a book stand to host an aging book whenever it is

convenient. This accessory will help to keep the binding strong, the pages intact, and protect the overall structure of the book. Condition of your old book will impact value, too. 4. Books featuring imagery by important illustrators hold their value in the marketplace such as Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland with John Tenniel illustrations or Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson with illustrations by N. C. Wyeth. Other famous illustrators can impact a vintage book’s value like Beatrix Potter, E.B. Lewis, Rockwell Kent, etc. 5. Good condition is very important. If you can, purchase or retain original wrappers, dust jackets, and slipcases as these accessories can increase the value of a vintage book. Great novels that masterfully chronicle a time period and place in the world, such as Margaret Mitchell’s Gone with the Wind, are desirable and valuable. Also, books that highlight a particular genre or make an impact on the history of literature itself, like J. K. Rowling’s’ Harry Potter series, are favorites with collectors, too. So, before you put old books that are gathering dust into a box and bring them to the local book barn or neighborhood yard sale, find out what your bookshelves hold in terms of historical content and cash. --------------Celebrity Ph.D. antiques appraiser, Dr. Lori hosts antiques appraisal events worldwide listed at www.

Lynchburg Museum’s Major Exhibit on the James River Beginning June 6, the Lynchburg Museum will take visitors on an 18-month journey along the James River with “Experience The James: Lynchburg’s Pathway to the World” and explore the history, imagery, art and natural resources of this majestic waterway. Objects on display will include prehistoric tools, ceramics, tobacco-related items, art, and items recovered from sunken vessels that plied the river and canals. Some of the earliest bricks made in North America, fishhooks, Native American trade goods, food remains, and pottery are included from recent excavations in Jamestown fort. Pirates and floods are part of the story. The Museum is borrowing images and artifacts from Historic Jamestown, Colonial Williamsburg, regional artists, Library of Virginia, E.C. Glass Art Collection, Hampton Roads Naval Museum, Archeological Society of Virginia, Mariner’s Museum and others. The exhibition is funded by the Bank of the James, James River Arts and Cultural District grant, James River Association, discoverLynchburg, and the Lynchburg Museum System Foundation.
