He became quite knowledgeable in the field, studying books of the time and scouring the East Coast for the finest examples he could find. He became quite well known so that when buying at auction he used the name “Lacey”’, his middle name, so as not to be “run up” by dealers when he bought at auction. He housed his collection at 1825 Arch Street, a building he and his family had left years before. Until about 1910 he continued to add to his collection on Arch Street. At about that time the building was closed and until 1956 no one had screened the contents therein. At that time the family divided about half of the collection among themselves and the other half was sold at public auction. $90,000-140,000

Selections from the StevensonEasby Collection, Chestnut Hill, Philadelphia lots 450–590 Tuesday April 20th, 2010

George Gordon Meade Easby (1918–2005) inherited a remarkable collection of 18th century Philadelphia furniture, Philadelphia silver, and Chinese export porcelain. A descendant of several Signers of the Declaration of Independence and of some of Philadelphia’s most powerful merchant families including Penington, Shoemaker, Dickinson, Hartshorne, Waln, Large, Sargeant, Stevenson and Meade, Easby was most proud of his great grandfather, Civil War Major General George Gordon Meade. The significance of the collection has long been recognized. Selections have been exhibited in the Diplomatic Reception Rooms of the U. S. Department of State, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and the White House. William MacPherson Horner’s seminal work of 1935, Blue Book Philadelphia Furniture 1682–1807, included twelve plates of Easby family furniture. Previous auctions of family furniture brought record prices. An artist by training, Meade Easby worked as a syndicated cartoonist in the 1940’s, briefly acted in Hollywood and summer stock, and served for twenty five years on the Fine Arts Committee of the Department of State. He lived most of his life at Baleroy, a large gracious home in Chestnut Hill, built in 1911. Easby frequently opened Baleroy and its collection to the public for charity events, and as a believer in the supernatural, for ghost tours.

The attic of Baleroy provided a treasure trove of early Philadelphia manuscripts and documents relating to political, social and business issues of the 18th and early 19th centuries. Highlights include a copy of Matthew Carey’s 1796 pocket Atlas in original sheep binding; manuscript and partly printed documents relating to shipping enterprises of the Hartshorne, Large and Phillips family; Shoemaker business correspondence; and Adam May Stevenson’s diaries from the 1850’s to the 1880’s rich in details of daily Philadelphia life with delightful pen and ink vignettes. All will be offered in the Books, Manuscripts and Prints auction of May 27th The collection was not exclusively American in origin and the European furniture, English silver, ceramics, clocks and the sedan chair from Baleroy will be sold on May 4th and May 5th in the English and Continental Auction. Oriental Rugs and Carpets from Baleroy will be offered on May 28th. Mr. Easby was an avid collector of pocket watches. A portion of his extensive collection will be offered July 16 and 17. Jewelry selections will be offered in the fine Jewelry Sale, June 14th. It is with great pleasure that Samuel T. Freeman and company offers the Stevenson-Easby Family collection at auction.

The auctioneer has the right to reject any bid, to advance the bidding at his absolute discretion and in the event of any dispute between bidders, the auctioneer shall have the sole and final discretion either to determine the successful bidder or to reoffer and resell the article in dispute.
