In a Stunning Move, Morphy Auctions Merges with James D. Julia, Inc. Morphy Auctions has Merged with James D. Julia, Inc. to be an International Leader in Multiple Collecting Categories Effective December 14th, 2017, Dan Morphy of Morphy Auctions, proudly announced that he has successfully merged with the renowned international auction company of James D. Julia, Inc., which will become a division of Morphy Auctions. Morphy Auctions and James D. Julia, Inc. share a common purpose of delighting collectors worldwide with aligned missions and unparalleled customer service standards. Joining forces creates a synergistic team of passionate staff members to better serve our customers and strengthen the antiques and collectibles industry. Both companies take pride in having the most talented and knowledgeable experts in the industry. One of the biggest advantages to this merger is blending both teams of leading experts to enhance processes, descriptions and valuations. Morphy Auctions realized annual sales of $35 million within the last year. Within this same time, Julia’s generated $43 million in annual sales; for a combined gross of $78 million. With this combined total of annual sales, Morphy Auctions is one of the largest antique auctions house in North America. Morphy Auctions has experienced tremendous growth over the years. The combination of the highly experienced and much acclaimed Julia team together with the outstanding auction team that Morphy has already formed, will make Morphy Auctions the ultimate place to go for rare firearms and important lamp & glass; as well as toys, dolls, advertising, coin-op, automobilia and petroliana, and all forms of decorative arts. Dan Morphy, Founder and President of Morphy Auction Company stated, “I have literally spent all my life watching and learning from Jim. With nearly 50 years in the industry, Jim has an undisputed reputation and I admire and will emulate his business approach towards his clients and employees. It is an honor and privilege to have this new association with someone I have considered to be a mentor and leader in the industry. Over the years, Jim Julia crafted an extraordinary team and unique auction company as a result of his philosophy, business acumen and direct, honest approach with his clients whether they be buyers or sellers. I have always tried to incorporate the same approach. In merging with Julia’s extraordinary team, I intend to make the transition as seamless as possible. The bottom line is that I not only want to merge Jim Julia’s company and his people but I want to expand the philosophy of our business to include much of what created extraordinary success for Jim.” Jim Julia, Founder and President of James D. Julia, Inc., shared, “I had never considered not being in the auction business and I have, for many years, contended that I, like my father (who passed away at nearly 90 years old this past year), would continue to auction well into my 80s, provided my health allowed it. The limitation in my mind had always been my personal health. But in November of 2016, my wife received a devastating diagnosis of incurable brain cancer. I immediately realized that as much as I loved the people, the antiques, and the excitement of the auction, there was nothing more important in this world to me than my wife, Sandy, and I elected to devote my time to her. From November of 2016 until today, my auction company never skipped a beat and has been extremely successful under the leadership of my good friend and CEO, Mark Ford, who continued to lead, improve and expand our company. A short while ago, Dan Morphy called to speak with me and asked if I would consider selling the company or doing some sort of joint venture. I explained to him that there were 3 things that were incredibly important to me; first, of course, was what was in the best interest of me and my wife, secondly, my obligation to my incredibly loyal and dedicated team of employees, and thirdly, wanting to do what would best serve all of the wonderful consignors and buyers that the company had developed over the years. The ensuing conversations with Dan, and ultimately the deal we were able to put together, allowed me to cover all three of these factors. I have always admired Dan, his youth, his energy, his tremendous drive and his success. I knew and did business with Dan before he became an auctioneer and watched him as he entered the auction business and the subsequent dramatic growth he experienced. Dan is a superb leader and this was very clear and obvious during our negotiations about the melding of the two companies.” Julia’s Fine Art, Asian & Antiques auction will be held February 8 & 9, 2018 and their Firearms auction will take place on March 21–23, 2018. To facilitate a seamless transition, the Julia team will manage and conduct both auctions in Fairfield, Maine, as they have in the past. Morphy’s will hold all future auctions and accept consignments in their Pennsylvania and Nevada locations.

some years ago and repre-sent constellations for the sky – Sagittarius = the zodiacal sign = Nov 22 to Dec 21-22 with the Corona Australis = the little band of stars is the outline of the Milky Way”; Descended directly within the artist’s family Condition: Structurally fine having some light rubs & scratches, patina as shown in photograph. Verso are three tapped screw holes which were probably used by the family to mount it on the wall 52741-1 (500,000-700,000)

The Celestial Sphere is best known as the memorial created to honor the founding father of the League of Nations, President Woodrow Wilson, at the organization’s headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland. The 12’ Swiss version, installed in 1939, features 85 separately modeled constellations of the universe featured in both hemispheres—including the Sagittarius zodiac sign. A smaller version of the Celestial Sphere, scaled to 5’ with 66 constellations, was produced for the Aero Memorial in Aviator Park in Philadelphia to honor aviators who died in World War I. Measuring 18-1/2” high by 19-1/2” wide, this Sagittarius is signed both by the artist and by the foundry in the bronze and has been authenticated as a life-time cast authorized and overseen by Paul Manship by Rebecca Reynolds, a Manship scholar and curator who was formerly with the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and currently is the board President for the Manship Artists Residency + Studios.

Session 1

This sculpture was given by Paul Manship to his nephew Will Manship. In an accompanying letter dated July 3, 1956, Manship writes in part to his nephew, “… from a model of the celestial sphere I made some years ago and represent constellations of the sky – Sagittarius = the zodiacal sign = Nov 22 to Dec 21-22 with the Corona Australis = the little band of stars is the outline of the milky way… curved as to conform to the sphere which is about 5 ft. in diameter = I made the sphere larger – about 12 ft. as a Woodrow Wilson Memorial at the Garden of the United Nations Bld. at Geneva Switz.”

James D. Julia, Inc. is honored to present this important Paul Manship bronze Sagittarius. The truly out-of-this-world discovery is from a model for his monumental “Celestial Sphere” masterpiece. The Celestial Sphere is recognized universally as a symbol of hope and peace and is among the finest works by Paul Manship, unquestionably one of the foremost, highly respected, and influential American artists of the Art Deco period.

Stella & William Manship with Sagittarius bronze mounted over their fireplace

The importance of this gift was not lost on Will, who retained and treasured his Sagittarius sculpture. He proudly displayed it over the fireplace mantel in his Minnesota home where it was enjoyed by generations of the Manship family and appears faithfully in snapshots taken at family gatherings over the course of many decades. Today the Manship family has decided to place this piece of American art history into the trusted hands of James D. Julia, Inc. to be included in this auction.

When the sculpture came to us it was such a nice reminder of the love he showed to all of us and of his generosity as well. We were lucky to have such a nice reminder of him and an art appreciation area in our home. —Manship Family

Celestial Sphere 1939, United Nations, Geneva

Aero Memorial 1948, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Manship described this sphere in the following words: “The representation of the heavenly constellations is derived from Babylonia and Assyria: the Greeks and Latins added their names and gave the constellations a local significance in some cases and I have adhered as closely as possible to the ancient forms. Thus the star, Aldebaran, which represents the eye of Taurus, dictates the character of the design, as is also the case of Regulus, Leo’s Heart, and so with all the constellations. The forms and attitudes of the figures have been made to correspond firstly with the positions and the meanings of the emblems themselves. After that the inter-relationship of the constellations was designed to create a harmonious ensemble.”

Aero Memorial is located in Philadelphia’s Aviator Park, across from The Franklin Institute at 20th Street and the Benjamin Franklin Parkway. The memorial is a tribute to those aviators who died in World War I, and it was initiated by the Aero Club of Pennsylvania in 1917 with the help of the Fairmount Park Art Association.

ATTRIBUTED TO ORAZIO GENTILESCHI (Italian, 1562-1647) YOUNG WOMAN WITH A VIOLIN Oil on canvas Housed in an antique gesso decorated gilt frame Unsigned, on verso are several labels including a label stamped “Szepmoveszeti Museum / Biralat” (Museum of fine Arts Budapest, Hungary), four others, two have a round stamp in a foreign language which is illegible Reference: The original version is located at the Detroit Institute of Art under the same title, where they have commented “This image of a young woman playing the violin has traditionally been interpreted as a personification of Saint Cecilia, an early Christian martyr and the patron saint of music, whose presumed body had been exhumed intact in 1599. Orazio may have used his daughter, the painter Artemisia Gentileschi, as a model for the woman, thus adding a note of realism to his representation.” Note: It is known that Orazio Gentileschi used tracings both to replicate compositions and to do variants of them. Although, the quality varied. It is also known that Orazio retained templates of his compositions that he thought he could vary for the market as his work was in high demand. This work that we believe is a painting by Orazio looks to be a replica of his painting Saint Cecelia at the Detroit Institute which appears to be one of his finest works of highest quality. The damage to this composition by poor conservation does not resemble the high quality of the Detroit painting. However there is enough reason to believe that this is a work by the artist 30” x 39-1/4”. Overall 36-1/4” x 45-1/2” Condition: Heavily restored with inpainting, lined, craquelure, good.

RARE & DESIRABLE CAST IRON TOY “THE YANKEE SCHOOLMASTER” OR “EDUCATIONAL TOY” AKA ALPHABET MAN. This phenomenal toy is both intrinsically appealing and charismatic. This toy was made in the latter part of the 19th century and would be the focal point for an advanced toy, bank or folk art aficionado. Often called the alphabet man, its true name according to patent papers is “The Educator”. This short, stout fellow with disproportionate extremities, upon depressing the lever, lowers his pointing hand, blinks his eyes and a new letter appears at his bow tie while his hand rises back up pointing to said letter. Just as cast iron mechanical banks were designed to educate and encourage children to save, it is obvious this toy was designed as an early educational toy to teach the children the alphabet or various words with that first letter. Only a handful of these rare toys have survived over the past 100+ years. Made of cast iron and gaily enameled in vibrant colors, it contains a somewhat intricate mechanism concealed within his body. NOTE: This toy has been referred to as the “Alphabet Man” or “The Educator” however the original patent papers indicate that it’s called “The Educator” or “The Yankee Schoolmaster”. SIZE: 10” h. PROVENANCE: Ex- Robert Stuart Collection. This toy was prominently displayed at the famed Perelman Toy Museum in Philadelphia, PA for many, many years. CONDITION: Overall paint condition is very fine plus with understandable inuse wear, minor repair to finger lever, some paint restoration to blinking eyes, and small internal repair. 53076-32 (15,000-25,000)

EXTREMELY RARE & FINE FRENCH & INDIAN WAR PENNSYLVANIA MAP HORN. 16-1/2� overall including original plug which is retained by an attached chain & collar. This horn is in truly remarkable condition with fine surface and starts at base in Philadelphia and moves north along the Allegheny and its forks depicted as Monagahny and Ohio to Lancaster, Carlisle, Shippensburgh, Fort Louden, Fort Lettelton, Fort Stony Creek, Fort Bedford, Fort Ledgner, with great drawing of Fort Pitt with British flag on pole. There are few map horns of this era which show the 1758 Forbes Campaign in the west. Fort Pitt was built upon the abandoned French Fort Duquesne in 1858. This horn was probably carved about this time. Many troops would return to Philadelphia in 1859 and General Forbes died March 11, 1759 after being gravely ill through much of the campaign. This is a marvelous horn with beautiful surface that has been very well cared for and possibly the finest example of its type.

FABULOUS GROUP OF THIRTEEN REVOLUTIONARY WAR ERA POWDER HORNS CARVED BY ONE SCRIMSHAWER KNOWN AS THE “FOLKY ARTIST”. This group of horns represents 13 of about 30 known powder horns carved by same artist known as the “Folky Artist”. There are different schools of carving known on French and Indian War era horns and Revolutionary War era horns which is the period “Folky Artist” worked. The period between 1750 and 1790 was a time when every American military man carried a powder horn with his rifle. This is also the era of the greatest carvers of powder horns, few of which are known by name as they rarely signed their horns, but most are just known by their distinctive styles. There are groups of horns carved by the “Pointed Tree” carver, the “Memento Mori” carver and the subject carver the “Folky Artist”. These artists typically were paid by powder horn owner to be decorated and often named such that one man’s distinctive horn could not be mistook for another. Artistry skills and styles vary greatly among these 18th Century pieces of art. The “Folky Artist” is thought possibly to be a Southern artist as Southern characteristics such as palmetto trees, long leaf pine sprouts, scenes of dogs running deer, manatees, an alligator and what appears to be a Spanish mission are among the subjects engraved on his horns. There also appears on one horn to be the Hessian symbol of a double headed eagle. The only Hessian settlement in the South was at that time the Salzburger Colony on Saint Simons Island just off the coast of Savannah, Georgia. Of these 13 powder horns collected; 3 had Southern provenance. One horn known by this artist is identified to Aaron Lott of Charlestown, South Carolina and is dated 1777. There are recurring themes on many of this artist’s horns, the most distinctive being his unique curly haired lion, stylized coat of arms, his stylized sun with face, King Solomon’s Temple and among the most unusual is a hunter with bag, horn and flintlock rifle, dressed in Colonial attire; knee britches, frock coat, complete with tricorn hat. Many times he is with his dogs running an almost comical bug-eyed deer. At least twice he is found portraying “Adam” with his hat in one hand and accepting an apple from an 18th Century clad “Eve” in the other. Often circle designs are found with two or three smaller spheres inside with “sun, moon and stars” or other personified faces carved within them. Another unique feature of this carver is a moth-like bug and/or a floral type vine with a bloom resembling a thistle blossom. Mel Hankla who originally owned 12 of these horns (13th horn ex-collection of Jim Dressler). Hankla published an article in the May 2005 Gun Report and most of these horns are shown in that article including 4 which are on the cover. Mr. Hankla also had an award winning display at the 49th Annual Baltimore Antique Gun Show and produced a pamphlet “The Folky Artist” that details each of the 12 horns here from his collection. “My personal opinion, at this particular time, is that Folky Artist was on campaign. He was a soldier that was quite probably as far North as the Canadian border…but I also think he was at least as far South as Savannah, Georgia. Almost all of these powder horns have been engraved with an empty cartouche. Thus…I do not think that he was taking orders or making horns for particular individuals. Several have owner’s initials or a date scratched in, but most all seem to be from a different hand than that of the maker. I feel he was producing these horns for money or for trade. Perhaps he was producing these horns for someone that was actually dealing and selling these horns as a middleman; a merchant or a “drummer” as they would have been called in the day. Although his work is not what we would usually consider as professional, I think he was somewhat of a professional Horner. I believe he was influenced by what was around him; where he was, the people, where they were from and the norm of the accoutrements that they used. From looking at the whole spectrum of horns made by “Folky Artist” during the French and Indian War to his horns made well into the American Revolution, my personal opinion is that most were made in the field under a vast range of conditions producing much variety in the quality of workmanship. I feel some were produced under very good conditions and thus were very well wrought. And at the other end of the scale, one horn looks like it was perhaps an early attempt or maybe one of his last while laying on his deathbed!” This is a wonderful and probably

the largest grouping that will ever be assembled by one French & Indian and Revolutionary War powder horn artist. SIZE: Horns vary in size from 9” to 14”. PROVENANCE: Ex-Mel Hankla collection, Michael Worley collection, 2006: except brass tag # 149 Jim Dressler collection with his collection # 59. The Gun Report, Vol. 50, #12, May, 2005 where 3 of these horns are pictured on the cover and 9 of the horns are pictured in the article on pgs. 24 thru 31. Pictured in article, pgs. 6-7 of the Dec. 2010 issue of The Horn Book. An extraordinary private estate collection of a distinguished Virginia gentleman. CONDITION: Overall condition on most horns is very good. Several of the horns have seen use later then their time of manufacture. Three of the horns have additional names and dates carved such as on the 1775 horn which has an added date of 1837; as can be seen in photographs. There is minor insect damage, if any to most horns. Surfaces of horns are mostly smooth with good patina with exception. “The Coat of Arms” horn with the Hessian eagle which has eroded areas about 2” into horn from base that makes engraving difficult to see in those areas, but this horn which is 14” overall and has 11” of carved design is only partially affected.

IMPORTANT AND HISTORIC IDENTIFIED REVOLUTIONARY WAR MAP HORN WITH REPRESENTATION OF AN EARLY PROPOSED COAT-OF-ARMS FOR THE UNITED STATES. 17” overall identified to “THOMAS BARBER 1780”. The great significance of this horn is a carved 3” x 3” panel framed in laurel with a central device of a hand holding 13 spread arrows in shape of a bow tie with the ends reading “UNITED STATES”, on either side of arrows is a large “GW” honoring General George Washington. Above the arrows are two furled early renditions of the “stars and stripes”, between the flags are a pair of crossed swords and a pair of drums. The bottom of the device has two cannon. The depiction of bundle of arrows in a hand is seen on other horns and dates back to 16th century heraldry. New Hampshire Colony had it as part of its seal and South Carolina used it on Colonial currency in 1775. The emblem was also used on a New York regimental battle flag, 1776. However, the depiction with other patriot devices is remarkable with wording “UNITED STATES” at arrow ends is remarkable. In 1780, this soldier must have been feeling victory and a new nation emerging. Horn is incredibly carved with a map showing various New York locations including Long Island, Staten Island, New York City, New Rochelle, West Point, Fishkill, Albany, and other

spots that abbreviations and old spelling could be decoded. Elizabethtown, New Jersey is shown just off of Staten Island. The Hudson River and Mohawk River are neither named on the map, but weave among the carvings with the various towns and forts. One fort shown in a settlement is flying an American “stars and stripes” flag which like in the central seal is so rarely seen on American horns. Other vignettes include a scene of Boston and ships between Staten Island and Long Island. Based on all the New York content in the map Thomas Barber is thought to be from Peekskill as he appears on a 1777 and 1799 muster roll with Captain Azor Barnum commanding company under Col. Hopkins militia which defended the south approaches of the Hudson River. Thomas Barber is listed as a private with war service 1778-1782 from the History of Little Nine Partners & Pine Plains, NY Duchess County, by Issac Huntting, 1897 (Chapter 6, page 54) PROVENANCE: An extraordinary private estate collection of a distinguished Virginia gentleman. CONDITION: Very good overall, good “as found” surface showing wear to high areas. The original carved wood plug is intact and complete but has lost its retaining nails which could easily be restored (and should). Lot is accompanied by very good custom stand. 52751-1 (8,000-12,000)

This horn is pictured in a 5 page article in the Spring 2011 KRA Bulletin by Lauren Wengerd, Solomon Lumbard His Horn. “The date on the horn, October 18, 1775, is when the British trashed Falmouth, Maine. At that point, Solomon Lumbard’s home was in Gorham, Maine only 14 miles away.” Solomon Lumbard applied for a pension in 1833 when he was 80 years old stating that “he entered the service of the United States, under the following named officers, and served as herein stated, that on the 20th day of April 1775 he volunteered in a company raised in the town of Coventry in the State of Connecticut to go to Lexington in the state of Massachusetts, the day after the Battle of Lexington under the command of Lt. Samuel Robinson who acted as Commander. He and the whole company marched to Cambridge Massachusetts where they remained one month as volunteers. Then in the month of May, sometime the latter part, he enlisted into a company

commanded by Captain Israel Putnam in Col. Store’s regiment, for the term of 8 months and at the expiration of the term applied to General Putnam for his discharge who refused to discharge him and the other members of the company, and had him with the company marched to General Washington’s headquarters and informed him that he suspected the company was going to leave the army at a critical time, and that General Putnam was determined that they should not go although their term of enlistment was out. General Washington then told the company that if they would willingly stay one month longer, he would then discharge them himself, and give them one months pay to carry them home. In August 1776, Daniel Turner was drafted in Coventry to go to White Plains and Solomon Lumbard went and served as substitute for Turner in Capt. Riley’s company and Col. Stores regiment of militia and fought at the Battle of White Plains, October 28, 1776. Lumbard had continued service through 1779 according to his Revolutionary War pension record which is copied verbatim in the KRA Bulletin which accompanies this lot. PROVENANCE: An extraordinary private estate collection of a distinguished Virginia gentleman. CONDITION: Very good overall, horn shows light wear at high areas and edges. Smooth patina as noted. One tiny chip on one edge does not affect aesthetics. Scrimshaw inscriptions are crisp and easily read. Yellow pine plug is scuffed with hand worn patina with an old ink collection number “185”. Accompanied custom stand is fine. 52751-28 (7,000-9,000)

REVOLUTIONARY WAR ERA MICMAC DECORATED HORN OF ROBERT MERCER. Horn measures 14” overall with large panel with name “ROBERT MERCER”. Horn originally belonged to a relative of Robert’s as underneath Robert can be found remnants of original carving whose name starts with “JON”. Maybe brother or other relative was killed and Robert inherited this finely decorated horn with the varying designs of double curves commonly utilized by Northeastern Micmac tribe. Micmac designs on horns are quite rare and this is a fine example that further research may identify the owners.

CIRCA 1836 TANSEL FAMILY POWDER HORN FROM DIRECT FAMILY DESCENT, “AS FOUND”. The Tansel family was probably the most famous and prodigious of 19th century American powder horn engravers. This 12” horn exhibits classic, well executed Tansel designs, 4” spread-winged eagle with riband below arc reading “E. PLURIBUS UNUM” and twenty-five stars. The eagle is gripping arrows in one talon and a very long and detailed olive branch in the other. Also carved is a well figured lion, a stag and another beast. There is also a cannon carved above a serpent. Classic fish mouth engrailing enhanced with v-notch cuts at spout end with drapery border at both ends. This horn is unsigned, so we don’t know which son of Francis Tansel made it, but based on the twenty-five stars, we can date this horn most likely to the year 1836 as there was only a one year period in American history when we had twentyfive states. Andrew Jackson was President of the United States when Arkansas was admitted to the Union June 15, 1836. Michigan became the twenty-sixth state, July 4, 1837. Not accompanied by stand. PROVENANCE: Keller/Hottel family direct descent, family still maintains long rifle that accompanied it. CONDITION: This horn saw long use in the field as the side that would rub against the hunting bag is worn quite smooth and lost all of its scrimshawed pattern, but horn has been well cared for with a good patina with some weathering as can be seen in photos. 52827-1 (3,000-5,000)

INCREDIBLE, INSCRIBED AND HISTORIC 1813 AMERICAN INDIAN UNITED STATES TREATY GUN FOR IROQUOIS CHIEF “RED JACKET” AND ACCOMPANYING 19th CENTURY “RED JACKET” PAINTING. Inset seed bead decorated American Indian guns are extremely rare and few examples are known and this gun has impeccable surface and condition. Inset into right side of stock in white seed beads is Red Jacket’s Indian name and date of presentation “SAGOYEWATHA / 1813 / OTETIANI”. Red Jacket’s given name at birth was Otetiani which means “He is prepared”. Sagoyewatha, his name taken as adult, translates to “He causes them to awake”. 1813 is the year which Red Jacket, as Chief of the Seneca’s Wolf Clan agreed to fight for the American’s in the War of 1812. “Red Jacket” (1758-1830) was given this English name based on the fact he was given a red coat during the Revolutionary War. Previously, he wanted to remain neutral, due to his active participation on the British side during the American Revolution. During the War of 1812, he led his fellow tribesmen and fought gallantly at the Battle of Ft. George, August 17, 1813 and the Battle of Chippewa July 5, 1814. Red Jacket was among the most gifted and eloquent Indian orators of his day. He was quite famous

from the time of the American Revolution until his death. A scholarly biography by Christopher Densmore, published by Syracuse University Press in 1999, Red Jacket - Iroquois Diplomat and Orator details all of this cataloger’s summation above. Interested parties no doubt will know the stature and notoriety of Red Jacket in early American history and culture and his negotiations with presidents from George Washington to Andrew Jackson.

This trade musket is US proofed on barrel and contract marked by Daniel Dana of Canton, Massachusetts. Gun is in same configuration and furniture following the pattern of circa 1810 militia longarms and Dana had several contracts during this period. Gun is fine “as found” attic condition, 54-1/2” overall with 39-1/2” 69 caliber barrel. Inset white seed bead decoration is the best that can be found utilizing a few hundred beads which are virtually all intact. Presentation on right side of stock continues across top of comb into several C-swirls on opposite side, a true piece of Eastern Woodlands Indian art. Note there is a small iron staple in stock just forward of lock, possibly for attachment of a totem. Accompanying gun is a notarized 1980 letter of provenance stating how the gun was bought from direct descent of a member of the Seneca tribe near Tonawanda Reservation.

The painting shows Red Jacket in full dress standing view wearing his George Washington Peace medal, holding tomahawk at his side and Niagara Falls as a background (present day Buffalo, NY where he resided).The Red Jacket painting was originally presented to the Brooklyn Museum in 1864 by New York Representative John Schumaker who was from the North Hudson River Valley. There is a 1966 letter from a Washington, DC gallery describing the painting stating it had been re-lined and cleaned and though unsigned, thought it to be the work of Charles Bird King. There is a conservation report to the last owner, Mr. Wester White, which tells of large areas of in-painting. Amazing that this painting was priced at $7,000 to Mr. White prior to his restoration in 1968. PROVENANCE: Painting: Brooklyn Museum, de-accessed at unknown date; Adams, Davidson & Co, Washington, DC; Wester A. White, Freeville, NY, 1966; Private Collection, 1980. Musket: Parker family, Seneca tribe; Gerald Gruber, Akron, NY, 1980; Private Collection. CONDITION: The gun is very good overall and as noted “as found” attic condition with dark iron patina and dark mustard patina to metal. Stock is sound and solid with an old inset repair above lock. Bead decoration and wood have hand worn patina. Mechanically gun functions well with smooth pitted bore. The painting which measures 25-1/2” x 36-1/2” including frame is very good to fine as restored (read accompanying 1971 conservation report). 53011-1 (20,000-25,000)

OUTSTANDING & EXTREMELY RARE PATTERN 1703 DOGLOCK COLONIAL MUSKET. Extremely rare Colonial era Pattern 1703, British long land service musket. Gun is 62” overall with 46”, 82 caliber barrel. Gun is properly brass mounted with military proofs on top and breech of barrel. Broad arrow proofs on lock on either side of crown/”AR” cypher. Contractor’s mark at tail of lock reads “W / NUTT / 8”. No doubt the “8” represents 1708, the date the gun was made. This is an extremely rare pattern that conforms in all specifications as noted by De Witt Bailey in his 2009 text Small Arms of the British Forces in American 1664-1815, pages 24 & 25. Gun appears in remarkably fine condition with just minor restoration and would fill a hole in just about every Colonial collector’s chronology of arms as pre-1718 patterns are virtually never seen. CONDITION: Very good to fine overall. There is a glued crack repair just forward of lock. Trigger is a well fabricated restoration. The iron ramrod fits well and even though originally wood was prescribed but has matching surface. Iron overall is brown/grey with pitting especially at breech. Vent hole has been wallowed out but is original flint. The “AR” cypher is light. Other markings are well discerned. Front brass ramrod pipe appears replaced. The stock overall is quite sound, solid with good color and hand worn patina. 53001-1 (7,000-9,000)

Session 2 2042.

RARE AND SPECTACULAR CONFEDERATE BATTLE FLAG. This is undoubtedly among the most beautiful and aesthetically pleasing of all Confederate battle flags extant. This classic square Western Theater infantry battle flag was originally found in an East Texas estate. This flag closely follows the pattern of ANV (Army of Northern Virginia) battle flags and is totally hand sewn. Not including fringe, flag measures 44” on hoist by 45” on fly with fringe measuring in additional 8”. Double applique stars are 5” and are cotton. The wool bunting and the sewing techniques in panels are much like Richmond Depot ANVs. One aesthetic feature of the flag is the original and unusual fringe that trims three sides. This identical fringe is found on at least two identified Confederate officers sashes, one being from Texarkana. This flag has been archivally and professionally and tastefully mounted in a dramatic presentation. The flag is complete with its original sewn-in rope hoist around heavy canvas. Rare is the opportunity to buy an original Confederate St. Andrews Cross battle flag particularly of this fine aesthetic. This flag was studied by the late vexicologist Howard Madaus and his notes are included in a comprehensive report by flag historian Greg Biggs which accompanies this flag. Reference Battle Flags of the Army of Tennessee by M. H. Madaus. PROVENANCE: Unknown East Texas Estate; Sumter Military Antiques, Charleston, SC, about 2000; private Boston collection, 2003; Stewart Taylor Collection, 2012. CONDITION: Very good. Flag retains most of the original silk braided fringe. Interesting there are four contemporary sewn repairs to holes in field and threads unraveled from the silk fringe were used for these wartime repairs. The red field of the flag shows scattered holes and damage, some of which are moth holes, some however are consistent with battle. The blue St. Andrew’s cross also shows some moth damage and deterioration but is generally good. There is the normal staining and soiling associated with battlefield used flags. The flag has been professionally mounted in an archival type framing measuring 63” x 61”. 52875-3 (60,000-80,000)

Archivally framed 16” x 12” “HOYER & LUDWIG, RICHMOND VA” imprint of extremely rare Confederate Presidential appointment to Philip A. Clayton, Marshall of the District of Georgia, April 3, 1863. Document is boldly signed by Confederate President “JEFFERSON DAVIS” and Secretary of War “J. P. Lot 2044 (w/close-up) BENJAMIN”.

The quality seen in their currency can be seen in the details of this document.

SPLENDID PATRIOTIC CIVIL WAR RECRUITING BANNER WHICH FLEW IN PARIS, KENTUCKY WITH GREAT PROVENANCE. This 51” x 35” 5-color lithograph on linen still retains the original tag of Medal of Honor winner Samuel C. Wright, 29th Massachusetts who was among the earliest collectors of war relics. It still retains his original inked tag “BANNER USED BY THE / UNION MEN OF KY / PARIS”. His circa 1900 “collection of war relics” lists 51 items published on pg 98 of Sylvia & O’Donnell’s 1978, text Illustrated History of American Civil War Relics and this item is listed as “Item 27” when on loan to Dalgren Post 2 of South Boston “BANNER USED BY UNION MEN OF PARIS, KY, WHILE ORGANIZING FOR UNION ARMY”. The image of Liberty is quite unusual as she is holding furled American flag in one arm and dropping broken slave shackles in the other. What an important sentiment in war time Kentucky as there were many large slave holders and plantations, and on the other hand many Unionists who favored emancipation. Banner has been archivally framed on acid free cotton in 42” x 58” frame and presents beautifully. PROVENANCE: Samuel C. Wright Collection of War Relics, GAR Post 2, South Boston, MA; Norm Flayderman Collection; Craig Caba, Gettysburg, PA; John C. Harrison Collection; Steve Munson, Bardstown, KY, 1998; John Armiger Collection, Timonium, MD, 1998. CONDITION: Banner was not removed from frame for closer examination, but colors are still vivid with numerous small tears, scuffs, folds and reductions that do not affect the overall aesthetics of this rare surviving Civil War banner. 52875-1 (6,000-8,000)

SOLID GOLD TIFFANY PRESENTATION SNUFF BOX PRESENTED BY THE CITIZENS OF BUFFALO TO LT. JOHN WORDEN, HERO OF THE VICTORY OF THE MONITOR OVER THE MERRIMAC. One of the most important and historic American Civil War U.S. Navy artifacts to be presented for public sale. The unmarked SOLID GOLD (approximately 18 Karat) snuff box measures 3-5/8” x 2-3/8” x 6/8” weighing 252grams being a hinged rectangular snuff box with a thumb lip on the front. The perimeter of the box is presented with a two-strand twisted gold wire border simulating rope at the top and bottom. On the lid is an oval panel 3” x 1-5/8” framed with the identical twisted gold wire. Within the oval panel is engraved the battle scene between the U.S. Navy Ironclad “Monitor” and the Confederate Navy Ironclad “C.S.S. Virginia” (Merrimac). This engraving is done with the finest hand. The corners of the box (outside the oval panel) are shaded with engraved lines and decorated with nautical devices such as fouled anchors, laurels and tridents. In an arc across the top of the oval panel is engraved in old English script: “Lieut. John L. Worden, U.S.N.” immediately below in script “From the Citizens of Buffalo, N.Y./ April 8, 1862.” Arched at the bottom in very small Roman capital letters “YOU BEAT THE MERRIMAC AND SAVED THE MINNESOTA.” The presentation of this box is detailed in the “Buffalo Morning Express” April 9, 1862 on page two. This account tells us that the box originally cost $300.00 and that the amount was raised through subscription of 60 individuals all contributing $5.00 each.

“The citizens of Buffalo upon hearing of the Monitor’s victory over the Merrimac were so delighted at the act that they raised three hundred dollars, and sent it to Tiffany & Co. of this city. In return for the ..., Tiffany worked up eight ounces of eighteen carat gold into a box nearly four inches long, some two inches and a quarter broad, and about one inch deep. The edges of the box are ornamented with a solid twist border, representing the ship’s rope-cable. On the lid, a border of the same kind encloses a broad oval, within which is engraved a very spirited engraving of the most extraordinary sea-fight of this, or any other age. Over the engraving is the inscription “To Lieut. John L. Worden, U.S.N.” and under it “You beat the Merrimac and saved the Minnesota.” In the corners of the box are pretty little designs in etchings of a naval character. The snuff box is a very fine one though too heavy for use, its preposterous thickness of material happily exemplifying the ironclad Monitor.

Battle of the Merrimac & Monitor

Buffalo, NY had reason to be so proud of Worden and the Monitor’s victory as one of the original designers of ironclad ships was Captain Ebenezer Dorr of Buffalo. The Niagara Steam Forge Works among other Buffalo manufacturers made parts for the Monitor which was assembled in Brooklyn, NY.

This is an iconic and truly spectacular presentation gold box emulating “freedom boxes” given by other American cities to military heroes of earlier wars. PROVENANCE: Cape Elizabeth, ME Estate, 2003; Brad Witherell, Sacramento, CA, private collection. CONDITION: Very fine overall. Minor cosmetic scratching with fine toned luster. 52875-4 (30,000-50,000)

RARE AND UNIQUE 54th MASSACHUSETTS SILVER ID PIN OF CORPORAL THOMAS WOODS, MARKED “COLORED TROOPS”. There are only a handful of these 1-1/4” die struck 54th Massachusetts silver ID pins known and this is the only example with the additional engraving for “colored troops”. Badge is engraved with “Ft. Sumter” and the Four Battles of the 54th: Wagner, James Island, Olustee and Darien. Of the other badges known, this is the only example to have engraved abbreviation “Col’d TPs” which is found on either side of the flag on Ft. Sumter. Around the edges of the circular portion of badge is engraved “Corp. Thos. Wood: Co. A. 54 MS”. Badge still retains its original t-bar pin. Thomas Woods is listed as a 38 year old Teamster from New York City who enlisted March 9, 1863 as a private in the newly formed black regiment.

Contained within small chest is a green velvet with gold trimmed sash showing embroidered crossed sabers and a single star. Sash is in style of fraternal and ceremonial sashes, typical of Victorian era. Frederick William Benteen (1834-1898) was a military officer during the Civil War and Indian Wars. He is best known for not complying with George Armstrong Custer’s order to bring up ammunition during attack at the Battle of Little Bighorn. Benteen of course would survive along with the rest of Reno’s command. Benteen stayed in the military and was brevetted Brigadier General February 27, 1890. We have no provenance or history on this box, nor do we know of sash’s function. Paper label inside miniature trunk reads “JAMES DONALDSON, / NO. 247 WATER-STREET, NEAR PECK-SLIP, / NEW-YORK / MANUFACTURE OF / TRUNKS, COLLARS & HARNESS”.

RARE JOHN HANCOCK SIGNED DOCUMENT PAYING A “NEGRO” ANTHONY VASSELL’S REVOLUTIONARY WAR PENSION. This is a most unusual document signed by then Massachusetts Governor John Hancock. Anthony Vassell was a slave owned by one of the wealthiest men in Cambridge, Massachusetts, John Vassell. As the war began, John Vassell and his family left for England, leaving Anthony his most trusted slave to manage his property. Vassell was never to return to America. The State of Massachusetts seized his properties and by an act of the State, February 6, 1781, Anthony was to be paid a pension of 12 pounds per year. Anthony and his family, now free, were among the original free black community of Boston and there is much written on his family including his life at the Vassell Estate such as when George Washington entered Cambridge in 1775. This is a unique document as we know of no others paying a pension to a newly freed slave. There is a link attached on the web to George Washington’s Headquarters National Park document which has extensive information on slavery in Boston and an entire chapter just on Anthony Vassell and his family starting Lot 2054 in 1770s. CONDITION: Document is framed and was not taken out to check for mounting; it does not appear dry mounted. Good discernible ink including a bold Hancock signature. 52884-3 (5,0007,000)

A most important historical cache of goods from the Decatur-Garnett Family (Lots 2068-2149) Other items outside this historical section are noted as “A most historical and important collection from the estate of Maria Decatur Mayo Deyo (Lila) Garnett of Kittery Point, Maine”

Session 2

Rarely does the opportunity come twice in a decade to represent a long and storied family in the sale of some of America’s historical treasures. The first cache of historical goods was sold in our February 4 & 5, 2010 auction and it represented the Armsden side of the Decatur family connection of Kittery Point, Maine. The collection included important books from George Washington’s library, letters written by George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, Tobias Leer, and more; log books, and flags connected to the Storer/Decatur families, important silver, photographs, weapons, and hundreds of correspondence between family members. The star of the collection was the extraordinary and historically important Battle of Yorktown map which brought $1,150,000.

Century Tobias’s only son was Benjamin Lincoln Lear; President George Washington was Benjamin’s godfather. Another descendant represented in this family line is George Washington Storer; nephew of Colonel Tobias Lear. George Washington visited Portsmouth, New Hampshire twice, and on one of his visits he held the infant Storer and blessed him and his name became George Washington Storer in tribute. Washington only did this to two people, the aforementioned and Washington Irving. George Washington Storer was a career naval officer who was, in his final years, superintendent of the naval asylum and retired as a Commodore.

A most important historical naval figure in this family is of course Stephen Decatur. Commodore Stephen Decatur, Jr. born January 1779, died March 1820. He was known for his heroism and great successes in both the War of 1812 and the Barbary Wars. He was the youngest man to reach the rank of Captain in the history of the US Navy. Commodore Stephen Decatur and his young wife Susan never produced children. Many of Stephen Decatur the future offspring from his siblings down through the generations would be named in honor of their illustrious ancestor. One of the future Stephen Decaturs, born in December 1814, was a lifelong career naval officer and attained the rank of Commodore on retirement after the Civil War.

It is with great pleasure that we have been selected to sell important items from the Maria Decatur Mayo Deyo (Lila) Garnett estate. She was one of the original benefactors of the division of the original estate which produced this historic offering. The Garnett estate has roots in several important families, equally as significant, a lineage as the Armsden branch. A historical figure related to this family is that of Captain Tobias Lear (father of Colonel Tobias Lear). Captain Tobias Lear from Portsmouth, New Hampshire was, for several years during the American Revolution, superintendent of the Continental Yard at Langdon’s (now Badgers) Island in the Piscataqua River opposite Portsmouth, New Hampshire. He was responsible for the construction of the historic John Paul Jones Continental ship the “Ranger.” Captain Lear fathered two children; Mary Lear and Colonel Tobias Lear. Colonel Tobias Lear was born in 1762 in Portsmouth, New Hampshire and expired on October 11, 1816 in Washington, DC. He was personal secretary to President George Washington and also one of Washington’s best friends. He was also agent and Consul General of the United States of America to the North African coast during the Barbary Wars. In the late 18th Visit www.jamesdjulia.com for more information

Vice Admiral Morton Lyndholm Deyo ( July 1, 1887–November 1, 1973). Deyo had a storied 38-year naval career starting with his graduation from the United States Naval Academy in 1911, and proceeding through to the Second World War and beyond.

Vice Admiral Morton Deyo

Prior to WWII Deyo served on no fewer than 7 different ships and taught at the Naval War College and was an aid to the Secretary of the Navy.


rank of Lieutenant-Colonel, although he finished the War of 1812 as a Major. Decatur continued his career in the Navy, serving as Naval Store Keeper in the Brooklyn and Portsmouth Navy Yards. On April 8, 1829 President Andrew Jackson (an intimate friend of Decatur’s) appointed him Collector of the Customs for the District of Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Decatur was appointed Sutler to the Army at Fort Gibson, Arkansas in April of 1831 and died of typhoid fever on November 12, 1832.

After the landings at Normandy and assisting in the successful landings of the First U.S. Army in the Madeleine area as well as commanding a group of warships that blasted enemy strong points in the vicinity of Cherbourg, France he commanded task groups in the Pacific.

It was through this family connection that many of the items descended as John was Stephen’s brother and Stephen had no children.

Deyo was named to command Task Force 54, the bombardment group for the Okinawa invasion. Considered his crowning achievement in the Pacific was his command of gunfire and covering force for the assault on Iwo Jima and the occupation at the battle of Okinawa. For this service he was awarded the “Distinguished Service” medal. It was during this time his Flagship the “Tuscaloosa” was targeted by two Japanese kamikaze but was able to continue with the action after “splashing” them in their wake before harm could befall them. During the battle of Okinawa he was the last naval commander to form a battle line with battleships as they prepared to intercept the Japanese battleship “Yamato.”

The family tree of this noted historical family is far more diverse than outlined above. The offering in this sale is represented by some of the above-mentioned individuals. A treasure trove and much more was rediscovered in the mid 20th Century when the family as a whole decided to sell an early barn on Kittery Point to one of its members. At the time the barn had served as a storage building for a vast amount of historical material that has been passed down through the generations. In cleaning out the barn, a significant archive of Tobias Lear papers and memorabilia was discovered and much, much more. The items were essentially divided up amongst the various existing branches of the family at that time; however, a copy of the exceedingly rare Dunlop version of the Declaration of Independence, also discovered in the same barn, had to be sold at the time because of its considerable value and to effect an equitable distribution.

At the war’s end, he accepted the surrender of Japanese forces in the Pacific at Sasebo, Kyushu. He received his second Legion of Merit award in the form of a gold star in lieu of a second award of the Legion of Merit. After his death in 1973 his namesake lived on with the launching of the USS Deyo (DD 989) on March 31, 1979. It was the 27th Spruance class destroyer. It saw action in both the Persian Gulf wars and supported Desert Storm. The destroyer was decommissioned on November 6, 2003.

USS Deyo

Stephen and Anne (Pine) Decatur had seven children. The most prominent being John Pine Decatur who was born on September 14, 1786. Siblings include Ann Pine (Decatur) McKnight Hurst (1776–1819), Commodore Stephen (1779–1820), John Pine (1781–1781), James Bruce (1782–1804), Elizabeth Josiah (1784– 1785), and Joseph Hill (ca. 1790–1802). John Pine Decatur was appointed a Master in the U.S. Navy on August 4, 1807 and married Maria Susanna Ten Ecyk on April 6, 1809. He resigned his commission at his wife’s behest on March 26, 1810.

At the beginning of the Garnett estate we will sell important naval log books which come from the same source but from another branch of the Decatur family. (Lots 2055-2066)

After a brief career as one of the proprietors of the Bellona Powder Mills in Belleville, New Jersey, Decatur returned to the military. He was commissioned as a Captain of the Fifth Company of the Essex Squadron of Cavalry on May 11, 1812 and eventually rose to the

Down through the years some of the artifacts had been identified by various generations of the Decatur family through small notes or word of mouth and in the presentation of the goods some of the items offered carry “family history.” We are extremely pleased to have the opportunity to present this exciting historical lot. On behalf of the Decatur descendants and our auction firm, we hope that you will find great pleasure and enjoyment in these many historic items.

In WWII in the early 1940s he was commander of Destroyer Squadron II and in 1944 he commanded the Western Operation Neptune Force “U” supporting the landing of the American First Army at Utah and Omaha beaches. It was for this navel gunfire support at Utah Beach in the Normandy invasion that he was awarded his first “Legion of Merit” medal from the President. It was on the ship “Tuscaloosa” (CA-37) that he coordinated the bombardment.

RARE MANUSCRIPT RULES AND REGULATIONS OF USS CONGRESS AND USS CONSTITUTION, 1817-1821. The US Navy started with 6 original frigates from the Naval Act of 1794. The two most famous were Constitution and Congress which saw front line service during the War of 1812 and the Barbary Coast Wars. This well preserved total manuscript text was written by early American naval clerk for famous officers all with much acclaim in the early American Navy and are household names to any naval historian. Journal is about 200 pages and the first entry “FOR THE INTERNAL GOVERNMENT OF THE U.S. FRIGATE CONGRESS. CHARLES MORRIS, ESQ COMMANDER” dated September 1816 is 29 pages. Rules and regulations of every rank are noted. An additional 5 pages give details of the maintenance and firing of cannon. Interestingly enough, you have to turn the book over and upside down, now the book starts anew at the back which is now the front and we now have “INTERNAL RULES AND REGULATIONS OF THE USS CONGRESS, ARTHUR SINCLAIR, ESQ. COMMANDING”. These 80 pages of manuscript are dated December 20, 1817 detailing same rules and regulations of every rank, but more detail about gunning and “quarters for action”. The last entry “INTERNAL REGULATIONS OF THE US FRIGATE CONSTITUTION JACOB JONES, ESQUIRE COMMANDING” is 20 pages of text and dates about 1821. The text is signed by Benjamin W Booth who was “Master Commandant” on the USS Constitution at that time, previously having service during the War of 1812 and most likely this was his book as he moved from the Congress to the Constitution. Benjamin Waller Booth (1790-1828) was from a prominent Virginia family. His father Mordecai was somewhat of a hero in helping save Washington Navy Yard during the War of 1812. Benjamin continued into service in the Navy until his death at age 38. CONDITION: Very good overall. Well preserved for a manuscript text 200 years old. Binding is sound and signature solid, light soiling and foxing. 3/4 leather binding with French wallpaper covers are scuffed, heavy edge wear and a few reductions. Hinges are sound with scuffing on spine. Text is bright and discernible. 52737-2 (15,00025,000)

2060.  L  OG BOOK FOR THE SHIPS CUMBERLAND AND RARITAN, DURING THE MEXICAN WAR, 1846-1847. This beautifully preserved folio bound manuscript begins June 26, 1846 and ends March 21, 1847. There are about 50 full manuscript pages with day by day details, written for Captain French Forrest with several of his bold signatures throughout. Midshipman Robert B. Storer (1800-1875) was French Forrest’s clerk and his name is signed in front of book. There is especially good content as the Cumberland and later the Raritan, both under Forrest’s command, were the flagships of the Mexican War “home squadron”. Excellent content as seen in few sample pages posted on web concerns blockade, attack and capture of several Mexican coastal cities which should be read. The Cumberland ran aground July 28, 1847 off the coast of Alvarado and the ship was so badly damaged it had to be returned to Norfolk. Her crew, however, stayed behind and swapped ships with the sister frigate Raritan which had been at sea for 3 years and that crew was happy to go back stateside as the crew of the damaged Cumberland. The Raritan continued as the flagship and the text continues without a break, just changing ship name. This is French Forrest’s official journal as often in text he signs and approves the content that would be disseminated in copies by his clerk. French Forrest (1796-1866) was a long serving American naval officer from the War of 1812, the Virginia Navy in 1861 and then Confederate Captain and in that capacity raised and rebuilt the Confederate ironclad from the USS Merrimack. Ironically, the first ship to be sunk by the Merrimack was the Cumberland which was his flagship during the Mexican War and subject of this journal. James Julia Auctions sold Robert B. Storer’s previous journal, 1844-1845, for the ship Delaware as Lot 2082, February 4, 2010. CONDITION: Fine overall. 13-3/4” x 8-1/2” folio has been well maintained with French wallpaper covers and end sheets, 3/4 leather with raised gold bands on spine. Scuffing and corner wear. Text is fine. 52737-7 (2,000-4,000)

HISTORICAL LETTER BOOK OF USS RESACA, OCTOBER 1, 1866 TO NOVEMBER 30th, 1868 WITH DETAILS OF THE TRANSFER OF ALASKA FROM RUSSIA TO THE UNITED STATES FIRST ALASKA TERRITORY AMERICAN NAVAL FLEET. Large full leather bound letter book, 13” x 8-1/4” with over 200 pages of manuscript text beginning with the commissioning of the USS Resaca. A 3rd class screw steamer, its initial assignment was cruising off the Mexican and Central American Pacific Coast relieving the Jamestown. An outbreak of Yellow Fever among the crew of the Jamestown spread to the Resaca and resulted in both ships being sent to Alaskan waters in effect to quarantine. The first year of text mostly concerns the Yellow Fever outbreak and the deaths of sailors. There is a very interesting, large laid-in folio listing the names of 19 deceased sailors listing the value of their clothing which were thrown overboard by order of ships surgeon “to prevent the spread of Yellow Fever on board”. After leaving the Central American coast in early July 1867 for Alaskan waters, she made Vancouver August 31st and Sitka, Alaska September 26, 1867. There is a detailed 7-page letter written by Captain Bradford on October 23, 1867 (pages 135-143), which describes in detail what has occurred so far in the North Pacific describing various inland passages, forts, English naval presence, the Indians in Russian America, official meetings with an Inuit Prince, Russian naval officer, commerce and trade, meteorological observations. He also describes the ceremony with American and Russian Commissioners transferring the dominion and territory known as Russian America to the US Commissioner. “The Russian flag was saluted when hauled down and the Lot 2061 American when it was hoisted. Captain Emmons on the part of the Navy participated in the ceremony”. Bradford’s log from this date forward has the initials “AT” after his entries for Sitka for “Alaska Territory”. Alaska had just been purchased a few months earlier by a treaty ratified by the United States Senate, March 30, 1867 paying $7.2 million dollars for the territory of over half a million square miles. CONDITION: Good overall. Pages and signatures all very good. Front cover is dis-bound as is front fly sheet. Rear hinge intact, 3/4 leather.

RARE WAR OF 1812 “CHESAPEAKE BAY FLOTILLA” GUN BOAT LOG, US GUN BOAT NO 70 AND SHIP USS BLACK SNAKE. This fine folio bound manuscript is titled on front fly leaf “US GUN BOAT No. 70 / kept by “GEORGE WASHINGTON STORER, COMMANDER / COMMENCING FEBRUARY 23, 1813”. We know of no other logs of any ship from the “Chesapeake Bay Flotilla” which were commanded by Commodore Josiah Barney whose sailors and marines fought a defensive campaign on land and sea against the British Invasion and capture of Washington, DC. Josiah Barney submitted his plan of defense of Chesapeake Bay July 4, 1813. He estimated that a force of gun boats and barges that could be sailed or rowed. The Black Snake was indeed just a barge Lot 2064 that was rowed by crew with two deck cannon, it drew only 21 feet of water so could maneuver deep up river. The flagship was the USS Scorpion which the last entry in this text shows armaments and crew from Storer’s command were transferred to on September 4, 1813. The Chesapeake Bay Flotilla engaged the Royal Navy before Barney was forced to scuttle the vessels themselves in August 1814. The men of the Flotilla then served on shore in defense of Washington, DC and Baltimore. This day-by-day account of about 6 months, 46 pages, is sampled in a few pages which can be seen on line. An interesting note is that June 5-6, 1813 entries tells of the flagship Scorpion being grounded and assisted in removing her guns and provisions, etc., so that she could be re-floated. From this same family, a rare 16-star American flag of the Scorpion was sold on these floors February 4, 2010 as Lot 2087. At the time, of the flag’s cataloguing, this journal was not known. This book was re-used; if you turn book around and flip book upside down, George Washington’s Storer’s son, Colonel John L. Storer of the Maine State Militia, utilized this as a letter book (20 pages) from August 31, 1820 until the date of his resignation April 5, 1821. CONDITION: Good to very good overall. Pages and signatures are tight and intact, foxed and stained end papers and boards. Edge wear and worn 3/4 leather binding with scuffs to leather and French wallpaper boards. 52737-11 (3,000-6,000)

LETTER BOOK, USS BRANDYWINE, GEORGE WASHINGTON STORER COMMANDING, RIO DE JANEIRO, JULY 13, 1847-JULY 9, 1849. This excellent condition, full leather bound folio, 12-1/2” x 8-1/4”, with French wallpaper end sheets. Text concerns the re-supply and equipping of the Brandywine for its Brazil operations where it would cruise for close to 3 years before returning to the US in 1850. There is a tremendous amount of content on the 430 manuscript pages, plus 12-page index plus an additional 20 pages of rules and punishments for sailors. One letter dated September 5, 1848 Storer is investigating a vessel flying an American flag that is involved in the slave trade, and telling captains of other vessels that these vessels can be taken as prizes “You will use every effort to arrest, bring to well merited punishment all persons who on the open seas may disgrace the American flag by making it in anyway subservient to the pursuit and protection of this most nefarious commerce”. There is an interesting signature on the front fly leaf of book which must have been used by the US Ambassador when the Brazilian-American Claims Treaty was signed January 27, 1849. Inscription reads: “David Tod, esquire / Envoy Extraordinary / and Minister Plenipotentiary / of the United States / Rio de Janeiro”. Indeed, David Tod was the American representative who signed the claims document along with the Emperor of Brazil. The United States received 530,000 milreis to cover indemnifications against American interests which in dollar equivalents of 1850 was over one million dollars, which today is close to two billion dollars. This ledger must have been used as evidence and then returned to Storer. David Tod was best known to American historians as the effective Civil War governor of Ohio. CONDITION: Very good overall. Leather is scuffed, but contents are very good. Signatures tight as are hinges, leather title on spine chipped. Several long cuts and staining on cover. 52737-12 (1,500-3,000)

JOURNAL, USS MACEDONIAN, COMMANDED BY CAPTAIN JAMES BIDDLE, JUNE 12, 1826-OCTOBER 31, 1831. The USS Macedonian has the most interesting history in that it was captured during the War of 1812 by Stephen Decatur in the naval battle that would make him famous. HMS Macedonian was immediately preserved by Stephen Decatur as he realized the fledgling American Navy could well use this prized British frigate. The ship was brought to Newport, Rhode Island, refitted and renamed USS Macedonian. The Macedonian would next see service in Commodore Decatur’s second Barbary War as part of his 10-ship squadron. The Macedonian would see limited service in the Caribbean and the East Coast until being re-provisioned as flagship for James Biddle’s new “Brazil Squadron” to protect American interests in South America from the newly independent nations of Brazil, Argentina and Bolivia where fighting was rampant. This 165 page manuscript journal maintained by Mid-shipman William P. Livingston, is well preserved and shows daily details of ships position and notes daily as to specific actions and events. This cruise is the most significant action of Macedonian’s entire career and the entire chronology is maintained from the day it left Hampton Roads, June 18, 1826 until the day it returned October 31, 1828 and was immediately decommissioned. In this forgotten two year campaign, the American Navy would remain on the coast of South America protecting American merchant vessels and meeting with the various new South American ministers until peace was finally achieved by the warring Lot 2067 Brazilians and Argentinians (Buenos Aires) on August 29, 1828. August 30th Biddle’s squadron headed back to the United States and on the way discovered they had small pox on board with several sailors dying. The last entry October 31: “Came to anchor off Norfolk” would be the Macedonian’s last day in the Navy. The ship’s keel was utilized to rebuild the second USS Macedonian beginning in 1832 at the Gosport Navy Yard and finally launched in 1836 for 16 years of service. Accompanying lot is copied history of the Macedonian and typed script notes on many of the entries. CONDITION: Fair to good overall. Contents intact and easily discernible. 3/4 leather binding heavily scuffed, worn and stained at spine and edges. Hinges intact, but starting. Spine intact, partially split at bottom.

ICONIC AND EXCEEDINGLY RARE GOLD FREEDOM BOX, COMMODORE STEPHEN DECATUR FROM THE CITY OF NEW YORK, 1812. This important and historic American icon had been on display at the US Naval Academy Museum from 1940 until 2011. Gold Freedom boxes were used to confer honorary privileges on distinguished individuals which date from the mid-18th century. Freedom boxes in America presented by the City of New York were given to other notables such as General George Washington (1732-1799), Marquis de Lafayette (1757-1834), Baron von Steuben (1730-1794), Governor George Clinton (1739-1812) and Chief Justice John Jay (1745-1829).

Freedom box is made and hallmarked by goldsmith JeanBaptiste Lizon (1757-1811), Paris. Box also has French proofs for 18k gold. Commodore Stephen Decatur (1779-1820) was a great naval leader and hero of the Barbary Wars and War of 1812. During his command of USS United States he captured HMS Macedonian, in the Atlantic west of the Canary Islands on October 25, 1812, in one of the major ship-to-ship actions of the War of 1812 against Great Britain. On December 4, 1812, he towed the captured ship into New York harbor amid tumultuous national jubilation over the spectacular victory. Decatur and his crew were lionized and received special praise from the President and Congress and many honors from Congress, states and cities. On December 17, 1812, the municipal authorities in New York City voted him “freedom of the city” recognized by a gold box and commissioned a life size portrait for city hall. On December 29, New York City gave a banquet in his honor. This box is pictured in a February 1982 article in Antiques Magazine titled “Gold and Silver Owned by Stephen Decatur, Jr” by J. S. Brown, pg 401 “The City of New York resolved on December 17, 1812 that the freedom of the city should be presented to Stephen Decatur in a gold box. The key to the city has since been lost, but the octagonal box that contained it, made in Paris in 1798. Both were given to Decatur at an elaborate dinner in his honor on December 29, 1812.” The inscription on the inside of the lid of the box acknowledges Decatur’s “valor and skill in the capture of the British Frigate Macedonian by the U.S. Frigate United States October 25, 1812.”

This is an extremely rare opportunity to own an American gold Freedom Box. We note only one previous sale of another and that was the John Jay box sold by Sotheby’s, June 26, 1991. PROVENANCE: A most historical and important collection from the estate of Maria Decatur Mayo Deyo (Lila) Garnett of Kittery Point, Maine, who inherited the box from her mother Mrs. Maria Ten Eyck Decatur Mayo Deyo of Kittery, Maine (widow of Vice Admiral Morton L. Deyo, 1887-1973); who had received it from her mother, Mrs. Wyndham R. Mayo, Jr. nee Maria Decatur; who had received it from her father Stephen Decatur of Kittery Point, Maine, who was descended from John Pine Decatur, younger brother of Commodore Stephen Decatur (1779-1820). A photocopy of Stephen Decatur’s hand written will dated 1874 and a photocopy of a typed version of Maria Decatur’s will dated 1892 accompanies this lot. CONDITION: Very fine.

GOLD SIGNET RING GIVEN TO COMMODORE STEPHEN DECATUR IN 1805 FROM THE BEY OF TUNIS UPON HIS SURRENDER OF TRIPOLI. Stephen Decatur became an international hero after his significant victory over the Barbary pirates in Tripoli, ending with the June 4, 1805 surrender to the United States. This signet ring is made of high karat gold with about a 3/4” Carnelian engraved with the seal of Hammuda Ibn Ali, ruler of Tunis from 1782 until his death September 15, 1814. In Alexander McKenzie’s text Life of Stephen Decatur..., 1846, pg 122 “At Naples, Decatur was praised and dubbed ‘Terror of the Foe’ by the local media. Upon hearing the news of their victory in Tripoli, Pope Pius the VII publicly declared that the United States, though in their Lot 2072 infancy, had done more to humble and humiliate the anti-Christian barbarians on the African coast in one night than all the European states had done for a long period of time.” It would be interesting to compare any of the official documents of surrender to see if they were sealed with this particular signet. This signet ring was such a prized possession of the Decatur family that a copy was made by Lila Mayo for and always worn by Admiral Morton L. Deyo. PROVENANCE: A most historical and important collection from the estate of Maria Decatur Mayo Deyo (Lila) Garnett of Kittery Point, Maine. CONDITION: Good to very good overall.

EXTREMELY RARE SILVER CONGRESSIONAL MEDAL FOR SURVIVOR “CHARLES TONG SING” OF THE “JEANNETTE” ARCTIC EXPEDITION OF 1879-1882. The round medal in silver has a depiction of the 3-mast ship with sails rolled and anchored to ice having a group of men, dogs and dog sleds beside, depicting the abandonment of the ship and the saving of some of its supplies. The reverse having an outer band of lettering “Jeannette Arctic Expedition 1879-1882”, below this at the top center engraved “To Charles Tong Sing”. The bottom half “In Lot 2166 (w/reverse) Commemoration of Perils Encountered and as an Expression of the High Esteem in which Congress Holds His Services” “Act Approved Sept. 30. 1890.” Top bar and ribbon are missing, but medal still retains the clasp that would have held it. Note: This medal was produced for either the survivors or the next of kin of those who had perished in the expedition. Eight gold and 25 silver medals were struck by the Philadelphia Mint and were probably designed by Charles E. Barber or George Morgan, chief engravers to the mint. The story of the expedition was recounted in an 1882 book Arctic Lost Ship Shipwreck Jeannette. The account of the expedition and its survivors caught the attention of the American public and caused Congress to act with this medal. The crew consisted of 30 officers and men, and three civilians. It departed from San Francisco July 8, 1879. Shortly after September 4, it was caught fast in the ice pack near Wrangel Island. For the next 21 months, it drifted to the Northwest towards the North Pole, steadfast in the ice. On June 12, 1881 the pressure of the ice finally began to crush the Jeannette. It was at that time that provisions were unloaded and the ship sank the following morning. Three boats took off in hope of reaching the mainland. A storm blew up and one of the boats with eight men capsized and sank. The remaining two boats with 25 men continued on their harrowing, almost 2-year adventure, finally 8 survivors found native hunters in Northern Siberia. They were then guided to the Russian settlement, Bulun, where they procured good sleds and used reindeer in the place of dogs until they reached the Siberian Railroad where they eventually made their way to St. Petersburg, then to London and onto New York where they arrived in the spring of 1883. Two of these survivors went insane as a result of this experience and shot themselves. The surviving 6 men became quite the celebrities and much was written about their exploits in their day. The recipient, Charles Tong Sing, was a Chinese-American and had served as Captain’s Steward on the ill fated expedition. He proved to be one of the strongest of the surviving men as noted in a 1902 Los Angeles Herald newspaper article which should be read along with articles included in provenance. CONDITION: Medal overall very good to fine, rim nicks, some toning on verso at top edge. 52982-1 (12,000-18,000)

PAIR OF INCREDIBLE MASSIVE ENGRAVED WALRUS TUSKS SIGNED NATHANIEL FINNEY. Circa 1870, San Francisco. This incredible pair of tusks measuring 27-1/4” each depict vignettes of well known actors who worked in San Francisco during the 1860’s-1870’s, mostly founding members of the California Troup of Actors associated with the California Theatre. Attached online is PDF with more information, biographies and stagebills. Obverses of each tusk have precisely executed portraits of William Burroughs (1840-1898), Ms. Charlotte Thompson, William Ayers Mestayer (1844-1896), Miss M.E. Gordon, James Edward McCullough, E.J. Buckley (who is father of Ms. Annie Buckley, a well-known New York City stage actress), Minnie Walton (1852-1879) who made her San Francisco acting debut in 1868, John T. Raymond (1836-1887), Emelie Melville (1851-1932), Lawrence Barrett (1838-1891). Also on obverses are found four vignettes of musical instruments and stage props, like a panoply of arms for the military, these represent the stage performing community. The reverses of each tusk has unnamed vignettes of four gentlemen, one appears to be William Ralson (1826-1875) who built the California Theatre in 1869 but is best known as founder of the Bank of California two on each tusk along with four patriotic motifs of eagles, one with motto “In Union is Strength” on ribbon in beak above a pair of clasped hands. Another unusual patriotic vignette shows a pair of clasped hands above the Constitution, a furled flag, fasces, & a cloud of stars. Each tusk is signed “Engd. by N.S. Finney”. Nathan Sylvester Finney was a master engraver. He was born in 1813 in Plymouth, MA. The earliest work attributed to him is a magnificent pair of carved whale’s teeth at the Mystic Seaport Museum depicting American victories during the War of 1812 at Lake Champlain and Lake Erie, carved prior to 1851. In 1858 the San Francisco Republican Standard noted the raffle of a 50 lb 3-1/2’ piece of whalebone carved with the likenesses of Revolutionary War figures Jefferson, Morris, Lee, Jay, Henry, J. Adams, Hancock, Rutledge, Otis, S. Adams & Franklin along with the equestrian statue of Washington in Richmond, VA. Of course this carved whalebone has never been seen since but this shows Finney was in San Francisco as early as 1858. Other signed Finney tusks are well known with patriotic motifs, such as the reverse of these tusks, with portraits of George Washington & Abraham Lincoln. Finney’s work is quite renowned and sought and this particular pair are fresh and previously unknown to the market from a local New England Estate. Special Note: This item(s) contains plant or animal properties that may be covered by the Endangered Species Act (ESA). Please read the Conditions of Sale, section 15, for more information regarding the Endangered Species Act, and your responsibilities as a buyer. CONDITION: Very good to fine.

2168. FIELD TELESCOPE INSCRIBED TO JESSE JAMES WITH PROVENANCE. This 5-stage telescope measures 3’ and less than one foot when contracted, still retaining hide leather cover and loop. Boldly inscribed as can be seen in photos “J. JAMES”. This wonderful relic was bought in 1917 by Christ Bjerkhol. He purchased it from a farmer residing near Northfield, Minnesota. The farmer told Bjerkhol that he found the optical instrument years before while plowing a field near his home. Everyone knows of the September 7, 1876 James-Younger Gang raid on the 1st National Bank of Northfield, Minnesota where only Frank and Jesse James survived capture or death. Could this be the telescope that Jesse James used to scout the town prior to the robbery and lost in his frantic escape? This object is shown in a full-page October 13, 1940 Deluth News-Tribune article on the eccentric collection of Mr. Bjerkhol showing off his numerous objects and the prize of his collection, “JESSE JAMES TELESCOPE”. A framed copy of this newspaper article accompanies the lot. NOTE: A two page appraisal done in 1987 accompanies lot. The appraisal corroborates that the scope was the type in use in the third quarter of the 19th century and that the engraved inscription is also in the style of script used in the third quarter of the 19th century. According to the appraiser Frederick Dose “script showing surface wear over the chasing itself ,this item appears the best of my knowledge and based upon conscientious examination of all the evidence at hand and with due research, to be a genuine article of the period stated and without evidence to the contrary to have belonged to Jesse Woodson James.” CONDITION: Good to very good overall. Brass has mottled mustard patina. Complete and intact with exception of front sliding cover. Optics are cloudy. Leather loop on 5” cover intact up un-sewn on top. 52838-1 (10,000-20,000)

RARE FIRST AMERICAN EDITION OF 1808 THOMAS CLARKSON, “THE HISTORY OF THE RISE, PROGRESS & ACCOMPLISHMENT OF THE ABOLITION OF THE AFRICAN SLAVE TRADE” OWNED BY FAMOUS BOSTON ABOLITIONIST SAMUEL PHILBRICK. Among the best known authors of the English slave abolition movement was Thomas Clarkson (1760-1846) best known for his 1807 text published in London. This first American edition here was printed in Philadelphia in 1808 in two volumes totaling 932 pages with each volume containing large fold-out illustrations bound in full leather with gilt edge ribbed spines. Front fly leaf in both books inscribed “Samuel Philbrick, a gift from William Rotch”. Samuel Philbrick (17891859) was a leading Boston Abolitionist and among the founders of the Massachusetts Anti-Slavery Society. The Philbrick home at 182 Walnut Street, Brookline, MA was one of the principle stations on the Underground Railroad. When Philbrick died in 1859 he told his son Edward “You will live to see a war over this slavery business”. William Rotch born on Nantucket was another prominent abolitionist (1734-1828). Made rich by his whaling fleet, Rotch was possibly the wealthiest man in New Bedford. He was also a charter member of the Providence Society for Promoting the Abolition of Slavery in 1789 and his son William Rotch Jr. was the first President of the New Bedford Anti-Slavery Society in 1834. Rotch’s ship Dartmouth was made famous in 1773 after delivering whale oil to England and unwittingly bringing British East India Company tea back to Boston. She arrived in Lot 2176 Boston on November 28, 1873, 18 days prior to the December 16, 1773 Boston Tea Party. SIZE: Books are 4-1/4” x 7-1/4”.

Model made with twisted silk or baleen strung rigging with well detailed fantail and female figurehead. Note: The war between Napoleon’s French Navy and the naval forces of England lasted so long that the captured French prisoners had to find ways to pass the time. Although the British did not treat them as convicts, they were confined to prison hulks, old castles or purpose built prison camps such as Dartmoor. Their captors encouraged the prisoners to form their own groups or guilds to produce small objects of art to sell in the camp’s civilian markets. Among the most popular were ship models that Lot 2205 they created representing British naval ships of the period. French prisoners of war obtained beef and mutton bones from the food rations issued to them. After gathering bones for use in model building, prisoners boiled the bones and bleached them in the sun, to make the bones easier to shape and carve. In addition to cattle and mutton bones, prisoners made use of their own hair to fashion sail rigging, and tissue paper to create sails. SIZE: Model: 14” h x 15-1/2” l.

Session 2 2323.

ANTONIO NICOLO GASPARO JACOBSEN (American, 1850-1921) THE LARGEST JACOBSEN PAINTING IN THE WORLD: THE CLYDE LINE’S “S.S. APACHE”. Monumental oil on canvas ship portrait of the “Apache”. To our knowledge, the largest painting that Jacobsen ever produced. This painting appears in the Jacobsen Checklist and its dimensions are by far larger than any recorded there. The S.S. Apache with completed in August 1891 by the Reeder & Sons, of Baltimore, MD and weighed 416 tons being 190’ in length. Made of an iron hull and housed three guns. The Apache was the first to establish a direct passenger service between New York and Miami. The Apache was also featured on many postcards and tourist ephemera in the southern U.S. This monumental canvas shows the black hulled three-deck steamer traveling right to left with low points of land off bow and stern which is believed to be Florida. A three-mast sailing ship is moored off its port bow and several sails are seen on horizon. Three men in a dory row away from boat. Name is emblazoned on the front bow as well as on top of the pilot house. The Apache ship flag off front mast, the Company flag off back mast. The U.S. flag flies off the stern, all on a choppy white tip greenish/blue water. Signed lower right and dated “1917”. Housed in a magnificent 7” reeded gilt frame with gold liner. This painting by Antonio Jacobsen was originally de-accessed by the Seamen’s Church Institute on New York City. In 1999 the painting was conserved by Yost Studio in New York City. The restoration included the removal of the old wax lining and relining with beva. The old over paint was stripped off and the painting was cleaned and properly restored. Most of the current inpainting applied by the Yost team was to conceal staining or discoloration which occurred during the process of aging. It appears that the owners of the Apache took extremely great pride in the ship since their commission to Jacobsen for its portrait is apparently the largest Jacobsen ever produced. A very dramatic and handsome Marine ship portrait by one of the most renowned ship portrait artists. SIZE: 47-3/4” x 95-1/2”. CONDITION: Some restoration with inpainting, craquelure. Very good. 53076-31 (25,000-35,000)

Considering Selling? Whether you have one important item to sell or an entire collection, there are a number of reasons why you should contact James D. Julia’s:

Reputation for Honesty & Fair Dealings Over the years we have established a sterling reputation with both buyers and sellers. For the seller, this means their goods will be properly and professionally handled with hassle free straight forward dealings. The buyer has also learned to trust the Julia reputation for honest descriptions. This means they can place their ultimate bid with confidence that the goods will be as represented.

Expertise Our expertise as auctioneers is unrivaled and extends over a period of nearly thirty-five years. In addition, each Julia specialty auction is cataloged by a nationally renowned expert within that field. In order to be part of the Julia team, these experts have to enjoy a similar reputation for honesty and fair dealings and be fully ­knowledgeable in their specific field. Our specialists have 15-35 years of experience in their chosen fields. This not only instills confidence in the seller, but even more importantly instills confidence in our buyers, many of whom don’t attend the auctions but utilize our catalogs freely knowing that they can trust our catalog descriptions.

Web Presence: We utilize our website to load advance notices of our clients’ goods to be included in upcoming auctions. In addition, we load our entire auction catalog, complete with photos, on our website so that the world can preview the catalog free of charge. We also have an arrangement with Invaluable, Bidsquare (Lamp & Glass and Fine Art Auctions only) and Proxibid (Firearms Auctions only). The end result is that usually our entire catalog with photos is loaded onto these platforms two weeks prior to the auction where any customer in the world can submit a bid. The day of the auction our entire catalog is offered on these platforms. The innovative technology allows a person to sit at their computer regardless of where they are in the world and view the progression of the auction. If they have registered in advance they can bid on anything in the catalog the moment it is being offered at auction. This has proven to be a convenience for some of our absentee bidders and it also increases the exposure for our sellers. Our online auctions are a very successful method of marketing certain types of goods. It greatly benefits buyers and sellers alike. However, our live catalogs are still the best way to auction better quality and more desirable items, particularly the rare and choice items.

Record Prices

Promotional Package We utilize a highly diversified and structured promotional campaign for each auction. This includes, but is not limited to, professionally prepared, fully detailed and illustrated catalogs, and a tremendous diversity of ­advertisements in various types of media all over North America. A highly detailed and fully illustrated p ­ romotional brochure is sent out to our mailing list. Our mailing list includes numerous specialty departments including a vast number of names of special collectors and dealers all over North America. The use of special press releases provided to key publications throughout North America also maximizes exposure. We also represent our clients’ goods at various key antique shows throughout the country, and in a­ddition have an aggressive telemarketing program to promote your goods. We spend a tremendous amount of money and energy making certain that your goods have the maximum exposure to potential buyers.

The Julia Auction Firm has established records in numerous specialty fields over the years. In some cases, both national and world record prices are set at our auctions. In short, our experience, sterling reputation, hard work, and aggressive marketing plans add up to the ultimate return to you, the seller. We have one of the most ­competitive commission rates in the country. If you have an individual expensive item or high quality items you will find that no one will beat our commission rates. We are always striving to serve our customers better, both buyers and sellers. Some current innovations include our Trade Up Program. This is a new program at Julia’s which essentially allows the collector to obtain new and exciting items for their collection and at the same time dispose of unwanted items from their c­ ollection. The net result can be no cash outlay on the collector’s behalf to obtain items he/she desires to add to their collection. To our knowledge we are the only auction firm in North America providing this p ­ rogram. The concept or p ­ ossibilities are virtually limitless. Parties wishing to explore this should call our office for more details. Arrangements to ­participate in this program must be made prior to the actual purchase at ­auction.
