Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790) was the only person to sign the Declaration of Independence, the Treaty of Paris and the U.S. Constitution. He was a writer and printer, scientist and inventor, statesman and diplomat, and some of his notable other achievements include being the first U.S. Postmaster General and the first U.S. Ambassador to France, inventing the lightning rod and Franklin Stove, and founding what is now the University of Pennsylvania. His influence on the early history of America and on American ethos is pervasive, and his likeness is ubiquitous. It has adorned American currency (notably the $100 bill) and postage stamps, and is seen in everything from sculptures and oil portraits to engravings, portrait miniatures and ceramic figurines. Well-known examples include the 1793 terracotta figure by Suzanne, in which Franklin, in rumpled clothing, is astride a broken column, holding a rolled document in his right hand and a tricorn tucked under his left arm, and a 1779 bust portrait by Houdon.

CARRIE G. STEVENS Rangeley, Maine, 1882-1970

Carrie G. Stevens (1882-1970), who was born and lived her entire life in the state of Maine -- never leaving its borders -- created her first fly in July 1924. From there, she would revolutionize the world of fly tying. She called her first pattern “Shang’s Go-Getum”, and it caught her a prize-winning brook trout the first day she used it. After Field & Stream magazine published her account of the trophy catch, she immediately began receiving orders for flies. She created dozens of patterns and thousands of streamer flies, which she sold to private clients and in stores and camps around Rangeley, Maine, where she lived.

Naval officer and explorer Richard E. Byrd’s first expedition to the Antarctic ran from 1928 to 1930. The team established a base camp, named “Little America”, on the Ross Ice Shelf, and from there explorations were made by snowshoe, dog sled, airplane and snowmobile. On November 28, 1929, Byrd and his crew made the first successful flight to the South Pole and back; Byrd was promoted to the rank of rear admiral in recognition of this accomplishment. Byrd would make additional expeditions to the Antarctic in 1934, 1939, 1946 and 1955. Francis D. Coman was born on October 31, 1895 in Wellsville, New York. Records indicate he was part of Lincoln Ellsworth’s expedition to the Antarctic in the 1930s. He died January 28, 1952 in Fort Churchill, Manitoba, Canada.

Stephen Gibbs (1896-1974) was a woodworker, builder and innkeeper in addition to making baskets. He is said to be mostly self-taught, but when he was a small boy his mother often had him bring supper to noted basketmaker Mitchy Ray, an island character and confirmed bachelor who was looked after by his neighbors. Gibbs wove baskets from 1954 until his death, and his work is known for its superior quality.

WILLIAM HOWARD YORKE Canada/United Kingdom, 1847-1921 The four-masted barque Kenilworth off Fastnet Rock, Ireland. Signed and dated lower right “W.H. Yorke - 1890”. Oil on canvas, 24” x 36”. Framed 31” x 43”. 5,000/7,000 Provenance: A private collection, Florida. Hyland Granby Antiques, Hyannis Port, Massachusetts, 2004. Kenilworth was the last of five ships built for Williamson and Milligan’s “Waverly” Line. Launched March 1887, she set a record on her maiden voyage of 41 days from San Francisco to Newcastle. On her second voyage, in 1889, she sailed from Liverpool to San Francisco in only 128 days, but then caught fire and burned while lying at Port Costa waiting to take on cargo. She was declared a complete structural loss. Purchased at auction by Arthur Sewall and Company, the hulk was repaired at the Union Iron Works in San Francisco at a cost of $45,000, making Kenilworth the first steel-hulled U.S. flag merchant sailing ship. After several changes in ownership she was purchased near the end of the Prohibition Era, by the notorious Las Vegas mobster, bootlegger and gambler Tony Cornero and his partners, including Benjamin “Bugsy” Siegel. They roofed over her decks to create a spacious gambling hall. Cornero renamed the ship Rex and anchored her 3.1 miles off the Santa Monica pier, just beyond the legal three-mile limit and a quick ten-minute boat ride from shore. After a nine day standoff known to the press as “The Battle of Santa Monica Bay”, the law eventually prevailed and Rex was shut down in 1940. She returned to service in 1942 in the lumber trade as the Star of Scotland. On a trip bound for Brazil from South Africa, she was torpedoed by U-159, ending her long career.

Built by Enos Briggs, on land adjacent to Derby Wharf in Salem, this was the first vessel built by Briggs at Salem. Modeled after the second of four vessels named Grand Turk, and to replace an earlier 300-ton vessel, she was laid down March 27, 1790. Launched sideways (with difficulty) from Derby Wharf on March 10, 1791, the three-decker known as “Mr. Derby’s Great Ship” proved too big for Salem Harbor and had difficulty finding sufficient cargoes. She was subsequently sold to Boston interests in 1795 after only two voyages for Elias Derby, and then made passages to India, China and Russia. She was wrecked in a gale off Portland, Maine on January 4, 1798.

OCTANT BY GILBERT & SONS, LONDON AND OTHER PROPERTY OF JOHN ADAMS Late 18th/Early 19th Century Collection of John Adams (1757-1807), of Edmonton, England, who maintained a practice of instruction in navigation and mathematics. Descended directly through his family. Included are his fine octant, a framed engraving of himself, a couple of letters in his possession and a splendid silver medal he was awarded. 1) Ebony and brass “T” frame octant, circa 1806, signed “Gilbert & Sons London” on the 12” brass radius arm. Fitted with screw clamp, inset ivory 0-90 degree scale, pinhole sight, solar filters, auxiliary telescope with eyepiece, fine rotary adjustment of the index mirror rather than the horizon mirror, handle and feet. Complete with original keystone-shaped box with the partial trade label of “Gilbert & Sons, late Gilbert & Wright, No. 148 Leadenhall Street ...” selling “Improved achromatic plated and brass telescopes, Octants...”. The octant dates from 1806, when “Gilbert & Sons” took over from “Gilbert & Wright”. Length of radius arm 12”. Scale arc 9.5”. 2) Print of John Adams by J.T. Smith, published in 1795, with a paper fragment showing the signature “J. Adams”. (Fragment previously attached to the back of the print.) Framed 11” x 13”. 3) Group of letters that reveal astronomical and mathematical practices of the day. One, written in 1779 to an unknown recipient, is from Jonathan Wheatcroft of Paxford (in the Cotswolds), reporting on his failure to observe a new comet, even with his “2-1/2” Foot Improved Achromatic Dollond telescope. Another is from Charles Small of Ferryhill, writing to Jonathan Lindsay of London, discussing complicated problems in plane geometry, complete with proof and various kind words about colleagues and family. Complete with remains of a wax seal, and early postal markings.

4) Silver presentation medal “Arts and Commerce Promoted”, inscribed “To Mr. John Adams, 1785” for “Artificial Horizon Improved”. In the Society’s records, twelve pages were devoted to Adams’ improvement. In seeking an instrument capable of measuring arcs up to 180 degrees, for use with his new horizon, Adams turned “to Messrs. Gilbert & Wright, who immediately presented me with an improved Quadrant, by which the fore and back observations are equally facile and just”. Medal in excellent condition, in its original wood case lined in green velvet and covered in shagreen. Diameter 1.75”. 4,000/6,000 Provenance: John Adams, and thence by descent through the Adams family. Gorrings, East Susex, United Kingdom, April 2007. Acquired by Tesseract, Hastings-on-Hudson, New York, at the above sale. Acquired by the Kelton Foundation from the above, March 2008. John Adams worked in Edmonton, Middlesex, seven miles north of London. In 1782 he revised and corrected James Atkinson’s epitome of the Whole Art of Navigation. In his preface of that year, Adams explains “The present reviser, having been eight years in the fea fervice, and eighteen a teacher of this art, enables him to say ... that he has now rectified what was amifs; alterered [sic] what was diforderly; explained what was obfcure; ftruck out what was not abfolutely neceffary; and copioufly added where it was wanting, ...”.

H.M.S. Britannia of 1689 carried 100 guns during wartime and 90 in home waters. She was “girdled” in 1701, increasing her beam, but then was broken up in 1716. The flag flown from Britannia’s foremast is the Banner of England, a flag associated only with the King, William III. The Banner of England, with its three gold lions on a red ground, could only be flown when the King was present. In addition, Britannia flies the pre1707 Red Ensign, with the Cross of St. George on a red ground, and the Royal Navy Union Jack flies at the bow. The broad pennants flown at the mainmasts of both central vessels are command pennants designating ships are under the authority of the officer commanding in the Downs (on the east coast of Kent), which helps identify the location as most likely the mouth of the Thames. Other details include the crew and the ship’s complement of Marines shown in full uniform, including hats, on deck for a formal event, the starboard sally port with the boarding steps still in place, and all of Britannia’s gun ports open, suggesting a Royal salute, and the departure of the ketch-rigged Royal transport in the right foreground. The scale and grandeur of this work was undoubtedly a commission to commemorate the visit of His Majesty.

WILLIAM GAY AND MARY E. YORKE New York/Canada/England, 1817-c. 1888 and c. 1854-1893 Race Day, America’s Cup 1885. Signed lower left “W.G. Yorke”. Oil on canvas, 22” x 30”. Framed 29.5” x 37.5”. 7,000/10,000 Provenance: Vallejo Gallery, Newport Beach, California, September 1997, purchased by the Kelton Foundation.

The 1885 America’s Cup race between Puritan and Genesta was the first in which the cutter design dictated the shape of the competitors. Cutters were primarily raced in England and their design described as “plank-on-edge”, with deep hulls and towering rigs that were fast in the strong winds in England. Boston designer Edward Burgess was the master of the “compromise sloop”, which were lightweight, with a wide beam and a shallow hull with centerboard. This design paradigm proved ideal for the lighter winds in America during the summer. The American yacht Puritan defeated the English Genesta in two races to win the America’s Cup. This painting exhibits many of the traits of Mary Yorke’s style, including the naive background, the pink sky and lazy sea. By the time of this work she had attained considerable competence as a ship portraitist.

The yacht’s private signal, along with comparisons to several period photographs and a Louis Roux painting at the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Massachusetts, conclusively identifies this vessel as the 1889 steam/sail yacht Sultana, owned by Trenor L. Park, a New York Yacht Club member elected in 1883. The bow view was almost certainly painted by Mary Yorke and due to the late date of this work (the yacht was not launched until 1889), it is possible Mary was the primary creator of the overall painting.

THREE PLATINUM PRINT PHOTOGRAPHS DEPICTING SIR THOMAS LIPTON’S YACHTS SHAMROCK AND SHAMROCK II 1899/1901 By Charles Edward Bolles (America, 1847-1914). Each signed and copyrighted with the photographer’s indicia lower right “Copyright 1899/1901 by C.E. Bolles Brooklyn, NY”. Largest 9” x 7.75” sight. Each framed 17” x 13”. 800/1,200 Provenance: Christie’s East, Sale 8347, August 2000, purchased by the Kelton Foundation.

Lipton returned to New York in 1901 with his new boat, Shamrock II, designed by G.L. Watson, to race J.P. Morgan’s Columbia, defending the America’s Cup for a second time. Shamrock II was the first Cup boat designed with the help of model towing in a test tank. On September 6, 1901, Shamrock II vs. Columbia was the closest match in Cup history, with an average winning margin of only 1 minute, 52 seconds.

Shamrock, built in 1898, was the unsuccessful challenger for the 1899 America’s Cup against the defender, Columbia. Shamrock was designed by third-generation Scottish boatbuilder William Fife III and was built in 1898, under a shroud of secrecy, by J. Thorneycroft & Co. for Sir Thomas Lipton of the Royal Ulster Yacht Club. She sailed to New York for the Cup race in the summer of 1899, but Columbia beat her in all three races.

Bingo I was designed by Alfred Luders Jr. and the model was built by Lou Banks, pattern maker and loftsman of the Luders Construction Company of Stamford, Connecticut.

LOU BANKS TANK TEST MODEL FOR THE 5.5-METER YACHT BINGO I America, Circa 1959 Built up in wood, the interior hollowed, and the exterior of the hull shaped, faired and finished to a race finish. On the leading edge of the bow, down to the bottom edge of the keel, sand has been glued in place. This sand was used to create a disturbance to the laminar flow, so the flow below the waterline and around the keel could be more easily documented. Exterior of the hull marked #2164, which is the identification number for the Davidson Lab at the Stephens Institute where the model was tested. In addition, the exterior of the hull is marked on the starboard side with station frames and a dotted line that represents an alternative, longer, waterline. The interior of the hull is marked “Bingo I - Feb. 27 1959 - LLB Jr”. Also marked with two dates in the hull: February 27, 1959 and December 28, 1964. Inscribed “New type keel, Dec. 28, 1964”; keel modification is visible on model. Height 14.5”. Length 61.25”. Beam 12.25”. 1,500/2,500 Provenance: Bill Luders, Luders Yachts. Benjamin D.

CHART OF PART OF THE SOUTH COAST OF NEWFOUNDLAND, INCLUDING THE ISLANDS OF LANGLEY, ST. PETERS AND MIQUELON 18th Century From The North-Atlantic Pilot for Newfoundland, Labradore, the Gulf and River St. Laurence, drawn from original surveys taken by James Cook and Michael Lane, etc. London: Printed for R. Sayer and J. Bennett. Engraving on paper, three joined sheets 25.25” x 67.25” sight, with a 7.5” x 8” sheet extending Fortune Bay. Framed 31” x 81”. 1,500/2,500

James Cook (1728-1779) joined the British merchant fleet at the age of 18 and the Royal Navy in 1755. As a result of serving in North American waters during the Seven Years’ War, he surveyed and mapped much of the entrance to the Saint Lawrence River and the coast of Newfoundland. His charts, included in The NorthAmerican Pilot, remained the standard navigational reference for those waters for over a century. This led directly to his commission as Commander of the HMS bark Endeavour for three Pacific voyages, in which he made the first recorded European contact with the eastern coastline of Australia and the Hawaiian Islands, and the first recorded circumnavigation of New Zealand.

Advice to Bidders

A.

1. Carefully read the Conditions of Sale.

B.

C.

LEMUEL D. ELDRED Massachusetts, 1848-1921 In our opinion, this is a work by the artist. ATTRIBUTED TO LEMUEL D. ELDRED Massachusetts, 1848-1921 In our opinion, probably a work by the artist based on the style of the piece, however, the work lacks a signature, marking or adequate provenance to fully ascribe it. MANNER OF LEMUEL D. ELDRED Massachusetts, 1848-1921 In our opinion, a work made in the style of the artist listed, most likely by a follower or student.

D. SCHOOL OF LEMUEL D. ELDRED

Late 19th Century In our opinion, a work executed at the time and in the style of the artist listed.

E.

AFTER LEMUEL D. ELDRED 20th Century In our opinion, a work made in the style of the artist listed, but not by the artist. Often used to describe a direct reproduction of an original work of art.

Ascribing Date of Origin If a date and location are included in a heading, it is our opinion the piece is essentially of the period and was made in the area indicated. The inclusion of the world “style” in the heading indicates the piece was made at a later date as an intentional reproduction of the earlier style.

If you are unfamiliar with auction procedure or terminology, or if you would like clarification of a catalog description, please ask for assistance from our staff. 4. If you wish to leave an Absentee Bid or request a Telephone Bid, please review the Absentee/Telephone Bid Procedure and complete the Bid Form. 5.

Online bidding is available at www.eldreds.com and with a 25% buyer’s premium. Prospective bidders must register and be approved prior to placing bids or bidding live online. 7.

If provided, a Condition Report may only detail flaws or restorations, and may not take into account wear, fading or other issues consistent with an object’s age.

No statements shall be deemed such a warranty or representation or an assumption of liability with respect thereto, but are to be construed as opinions only. Bidders are encouraged to personally examine all property to be sold prior to the beginning of the auction. 2. Unless otherwise announced by the auctioneer at the time of sale, all bids are per lot as numbered. 3. Eldred’s reserves the right to withdraw any property before the sale. 4. DETERMINATION OF HIGHEST BIDDER: The highest bidder accepted by the auctioneer shall be the buyer. In the event of any dispute between bidders, the auctioneer may determine who is the successful bidder or the auctioneer may re-offer the article in dispute and his decision shall be final. 5. REJECTION OF BIDS: The auctioneer reserves the right to reject any nominal raise or any bid or raise which, in his opinion, is not commensurate with the value of the article being offered. At his discretion, he may also reject any nominal raise or any bid that he may determine as having a detrimental effect on the item in question or the sale as a whole. Eldred’s may refuse to issue bidding privileges to any person not in good credit standing with Eldred’s, or to any person who is deemed by Eldred’s in its sole discretion, to be disruptive of or harmful to established auction practices, either before or after the acceptance of bids or the fall of the hammer. 6. TITLE: Except as herein otherwise provided, title will pass to the highest bidder as determined by the auctioneer, and the property is thereafter at the purchaser’s sole risk and responsibility. 7. PAYMENT: On title passing to the highest bidder acknowledged by the auctioneer, and subject to all the conditions set forth herein, such bidder will thereupon pay the full purchase price. Payment in full is due at the time of sale. Any bills not paid in full within 25 days of the date of the sale will accrue interest at a rate of 1.5% per month. In addition, the purchaser may be subject to one or more of the following actions: a) Any and all legal remedies available to Eldred’s and its consignors by law including without limitation the right to hold the purchaser liable for the total purchase price; b) Immediate cancellation of the sale, with Eldred’s retaining as liquidated damages all payments made by the purchaser; c) Resale of the property at public auction, wherein the original purchaser shall be liable for any deficiency, costs, and Eldred’s commission on both sales. At Eldred’s option, payment will not be deemed to have been made in full until Eldred’s has collected funds represented by checks, or in the case of bank or cashier’s checks, their authenticity has been confirmed. A buyer’s premium will be added to the hammer price to be paid by the buyer as part of the purchase price. 8. ORDER BIDS: Subject to these Conditions of Sale and to such terms and conditions as it may prescribe, but at no charge to the customer, Eldred’s will undertake to execute all order bids submitted to it by a customer who has established credit with said company.

TELEPHONE BIDS: While the sale is in progress, bidding by telephone may be allowed by the auctioneer at his discretion. A deposit of 10% of the anticipated top bid is required. Eldred’s shall not be held responsible for any failure to properly execute

such a bid whether it be due to equipment failure, loss of connection, or failure to hear or understand the bidder’s directions.

All bidding by telephone is solely at the risk of the bidder. ONLINE BIDS: Eldred’s shall not be held responsible for any failure to properly execute bids placed online. All online bidding is solely at the risk of the bidder. 9. CONDITION: If for any cause whatsoever any article sold cannot be delivered, or cannot be delivered in as good condition as the same may have been at the time of sale, due to a failure or damage on the company’s part, the sale will be cancelled, and any amount that may have been paid on account of the sale will be returned to the purchaser. EXCEPTION: Eldred’s will not be held responsible for damage to picture frames or lampshades. 10.

Connecticut residents picking items up in our Mystic branch or having purchases shipped to their Connecticut address are responsible for CT state sales tax (currently 6.35%). New York residents having purchases shipped to their New York address are responsible for NY state sales tax (currently 4.0%). Due to the 2018 U.S. Supreme Court ruling in South Dakota v.

COLLECTION OF PURCHASES: Delivery or shipping arrangements must be made within seven (7) days from the close of the auction for all purchases. All items must be removed from Eldred’s facilities within fourteen (14) days of the end of the auction. All items remaining after fourteen days may be subject to a $5/per item/perday storage fee.
