RARE J. B.HICKOK/WILD BILL, AND A PLETHORA OF FAMOUS 19TH 1. EXTREMELY CENTURY CELEBRITIES MADE THEIR MARK –LITERALLY– ON THIS HIGHLY COVETED AUTOGRAPH ALBUM Here is a partial listing • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •

J.B. Hickcok/Wild Bill W.F.Cody/Buffalo Bill J.B.Omohundro/Texas Jack G.A. Custer U.S.Grant W.T.Sherman P.H. Sheridan John A. Logan Samuel Clemens/Mark Twain Henry Longfellow Oliver Wendell Holmes P.T. Barnum Anna Shaw Bates, the “Nova Scotia giantess;” Christine and Millie McCoy, conjoined twins who sang as “The Two-Headed Nightingale.” Camille Saint-Saens, Joseph Joachim, Alfred William Hunt Lillie Langtry Morrison Waite D.L. Moody Bret Harte Barghash bin Said (Sultan of Zanzibar) Matthew Webb Prince Arthur, Duke of Connaught ,seventh child of Queen Victoria, “The Claimant” - a butcher from Australia who pursued a drawn-out court case (described in the newspapers as “the trial of the century”) to be recognized as the heir to an earldom.

“A plethora of famous celebrities, and dignitaries made their mark – literally – on this highly coveted autograph album”. J. B.Hickok/Wild Bill, J.B.Omohundro/Texas Jack, W.F.Cody/Buffalo Bill, each has signed and inscribed with their stage names as the three principals of Ned Buntlines 1873-74 production “Scouts of the Plains”. This autograph album is truly a unique one-of-a-kind find! It is highlighted by the extremely rare autographs and inscriptions of Wild Bill Hickok/Wild Bill, Texas Jack Omohundro, W.F. Cody/ Buffalo Bill, each has signed and inscribed with their stage names as the three principals of Ned Buntlines 1873-74 production “Scouts of the Plains.” To find Hickok with his double signature of Wild Bill is almost unobtainable. We have only found one other to have come up for auction in the last 20 years and can not find any single pieces signed by all 3 to have ever come to market. There are only a handful of the Hickok autographs known, and since he was only part of the play for less than 5 months, it is extremely rare to find any items signed in this period by this western legend. The signed page even has some other performers of the period, some who might have appeared in the same performance or theater. The album was created by a wealthy and successful architect named W. H. Culshaw, who used his skills as a draftsman to carefully create a unique and beautiful autograph album. He created calling cards with ink on the pages, using a different pattern on every page. The signers were then asked to write in specific areas, with specifically designated theme pages. This unique album boasts one-of-a-kind combinations of signatures on its single pages. For example, one page has Civil War generals and future President: U.S. Grant, P.H. Sheridan, John Pope, W.T. Sherman, G.A. Custer, John A. Logan, and S.A. Hurlbut. Or how about the page with writers including an early Mark Twain/Samuel L. Clemens, Henry W. Longfellow, Oliver Wendell Holmes Etc.. The book contains celebrities and important personages of England and the United States in the early 1870s. Collected by W.H. Culshaw, a wealthy architect from Liverpool who traveled between Great Britain and the United States. Other pages show the autographs of composers and musicians, sideshow acts, actors, politicians, royalty and much more. Culshaw and Sumners firm was made up of English architects and surveyors who practiced in Liverpool in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The firm was established by 1839 by William Culshaw, who was joined by Henry Sumners in 1861. At the time of his death in 1874, he lived in Rodney Street, one of the most prestigious streets in the city, and owned property worth nearly £140,000 (£11,010,000 as of 2014). After Culshaw’s death, his practice was continued succeeded by his son, Alfred, through 1916. William Culshaw died in 1874. His son most likely carried on the tradition of collecting rare signatures to account for the later autographs. William Culshaw died in 1874.

3.WILLIAM BARRET TRAVIS William Barret Travis Document Signed “W. Barret Travis.” Two pages, 7.75” x 12.75”, [San Felipe de Austin, Texas], October 15, 1833. Born near Saluda, South Carolina, William Barret Travis (1809-1836) moved with his family to Alabama when he was nine years old. He attended school in Claiborne, Alabama, and eventually was accepted as an apprentice to the town’s leading attorney, James Dellet. In 1828, at the age of 19, Travis married Rosanna Caro and their son, Charles, was born the following year. By the time he was 21, W. Barret Travis founded the Claiborne Herald, becoming the publisher and editor. He had accepted a position as adjutant in the Alabama militia and opened a law office. Possibly because his newspaper was not profitable and income from his law office was not enough to pay his debts, as well as an unhappy marriage, Travis abandoned his pregnant wife (Susan was born in 1831) and son and left for Texas in April 1831. Arriving in San Felipe de Austin, he obtained land from Stephen F. Austin on May 21, 1831, listing his marital status as “single.” He established a legal practice in Anahuac on Galveston Bay. Travis traveled through Texas doing legal work, becoming associated with a group of militants who opposed the Law of April 6, 1830, designed to stop the flood of immigration from the United States to Texas and to encourage Mexican and European settlement. Eventually this group became known as the “War Party” as tension increased between the Mexican government and American settlers in Texas. After the Anahuac Disturbances of 1832, Travis moved his legal practice to San Felipe de Austin. It was here that Travis, a year later, signed as a witness this inventory of the estate of the late William Robinson. The inventory includes debt owed to individuals, land deeds, letters, etc. Countersigned by seven other men. Expertly silked with light to moderate bleedthrough. Edges are uneven. By March of 1835 a huge rift had grown between “Peace Party” and “War Party” Texans as to what course of action should be pursued regarding centralism and states’ rights. Elections for governor, vice-governor, and members of the legislature had recently taken place in Coahuila and Texas. Evidence of legislative corruption appeared in a decree passed on March 14, 1835, authorizing the governor to sell 400 leagues of land, over 1.7 million acres, at less than two cents per acre, without being subject to the provisions of the general colonization law of 1825. The lands were shortly disposed of to speculators. Texas wanted to separate from Coahuila. On March 15th, Stephen F. Austin wrote “The territorial question is dead. The advocates of that measure are now strongly in favor of a state government; and that measure is now before Congress. A call has been made upon the president [Santa Anna] for information on the subject; and I am assured the president will make his communication in a few days, and that it will be decidedly in favor of Texas and the state.” Santa Anna was simply delaying until he could get Texas occupied with his troops.Open rebellion soon erupted and Travis joined in the fight. By December 1835 he had been given a lieutenant colonel’s commission of cavalry in the Texan army. Shortly after he was ordered to defend San Antonio de Bexar by reinforcing the Texan force already occupying the Alamo. Travis and his men arrived on February 3, 1836, and nine days later he was given overall command of the garrison. On February 22, Santa Anna and his army had arrived and began a thirteen day siege. The assault of the Alamo came on March 6. Travis perished (he died early in the battle with a single gunshot wound to the head) in the battle with 188 fellow Texas patriots.

5. RAIN IN THE FACE

One of the most feared and respected Native American warriors of the late 19th century. A Hunkpapa Lakota, he was born in about 1835. His name may have been a result of a fight when he was a boy in which his face was splattered like rain with his Cheyenne adversary’s blood. He has often been linked to the death of General George Custer, the United States Cavalry hero, at his defeat at the Battle of Little Bighorn in Montana in 1876. There is much argument about who actually killed Custer. The general’s wife believed that Rain in the Face dealt the death blow and the American poet Longfellow wrote about his deeds in ‘The Revenge of Rain in the Face.’ Original 4.25 x 6.5 half-length cabinet photo of Chief Rain In The Face in a jacket and tie, imprinted in the lower border “Geo. E. Spencer, U.S. Army Photo, 7420 Ellis Ave. Chicago,” and “Sitting Bull’s Log Cabin now on Exhibition at World’s Fair, Chicago, 1893, owned by Sitting Bull Log Cabin Co., Mandan, North Dakota,” printed along the top edge. Signed on the reverse in pencil, “Rain in the Face.” In very good condition, with scattered surface marks and rubbing to image, a litlle area in top center affecting written caption, does not affect photograph, scattered light soiling to borders, and scattered soiling to reverse. Rain in the Face signed this rare cabinet photograph at the 1893 Columbian Exposition (World’s Fair) in Chicago, Illinois. The Hunkpapa Lakota Sioux chief was a participant in one of the cultural villages on exhibition at the fair meant to represent peoples from around the world. The Indian exhibit included ‘Sitting Bull’s Cabin,’ the actual cabin in which the Sioux chief died. A contemporary description of the Exposition said of the scene: “Sitting Bull’s Cabin was filled with a number of Indians, including Rain-in-the-Face. War dances were given daily.” Acknowledged as the grandest exhibition of the time, the 1893 World’s Fair was attended by 27 million people, nearly half of the U.S. population. Rain in the Face and his band had surrendered in 1880, after which he lived on the Standing Rock Reservation in North Dakota. He died in 1905 on the reservation after a protracted illness. An extremely rare signed photograph, one of a very few known examples

In part: “The Allied Armies, through sacrifice and devotion and with God’s help, have wrung from Germany a final and unconditional surrender. The Western World has been freed of the evil forces which for five years and longer have imprisoned the bodies and broken the lives of millions upon millions of free-born men. They have violated their churches, destroyed their homes, corrupted their children, and murdered their loved ones. Our Armies of Liberation have restored freedom to these suffering people, whose spirit and will the oppressors could never enslave. Much remains to be done. The victory won in the West must now be won in the East. The whole world must be cleansed of the evil from which half the world has been freed. United the peace-loving nations have demonstrated in the West that their arms are stronger by far than the might of the dictators or the tyranny of military cliques that once called us soft and weak…Now, therefore, I, Harry S. Truman, President of the United States of America, do hereby appoint Sunday, May 13, 1945, to be a day of prayer. I call upon the people of the United States, whatever their faith, to unite in offering joyful thanks to God for the victory we have won and to pray that he will support us to the end of our present struggle and guide us into the ways of peace. I also call upon my countrymen to dedicate this day of prayer to the memory of those who have given their lives to make possible our victory.” An unobtrusive area of surface loss to blank upper right corner, edge toning, and signature a few shades light, otherwise fine condition. A beautiful proclamation from this hard-won day of celebration, commemorating victory in Europe and bringing an end to one of the darkest periods of modern history. On Tuesday, May 8, 1945, recently appointed President Truman held a press conference in the Oval Office to announce Germany’s surrender in World War II. Before an audience of his cabinet, US and British military officials, and congressional leaders, he delivered this proclamation and declared May 13th, 1945, a day of prayer. Offering gratitude to the nearly two billion who served, and remembering the 60-plus million who lost their lives, Truman proudly declared, “United, the peace-loving nations have demonstrated in the West that their arms are stronger by far than the might of the dictators or the tyranny of military cliques that once called us soft and weak.” A beautiful proclamation from this hard-won day of celebration, commemorating victory in Europe and bringing one of the darkest periods of modern history to a close with the added importance of its being presented to his cousin Ralph E.

Also, two original Police photos, one showing the book depository building and the other a motorcade procession taken from the “grassy knoll” on “Monday morning after Nov. 22, 1963”. A reel to reel tape of an eye witness of the PT 109 disaster and heroic actions of JFK as told by a Lt. Commander who was on the accompanying PT boat and assisted in the rescue operations a week later. He was also hospitalized with Kennedy and lived in a tent with him for 3 months following their injuries. This was recorded at a military related speech and he points to some discrepancies in the movies and books, adding anecdotes from his discussions with JFK’s men at the time of their rescue. Which shows an interesting insight into Kennedy’s courage and personality during their R&R. We believe this is the only tape, since it was made in the 60’s specifically by the request of Marta Duda, a collector and supporter of Kennedy, and is part of her large and extensive collection. We have made a cd version of the tape to accompany it with the original.

One year earlier, Freud had detected a lesion in his mouth that was later identified to be cancerous from his heavy cigar smoking. Writing to an unknown recipient, Freud wants to set up a meeting, but is having difficulty setting a day with doctor visits, in part: “It is true that visits still tire me very much, but your wish for a conversation concurs with mine, because I have decided to resign from the leadership of the group; I would like to hear your opinion about the consequences. When should this conversation take place? The next week is completely unsuitable for me since my physicians are coming back, and I do not know of any day when I will be here or in Vienna; when I am in Vienna it is always difficult for me to be on time for the train for my return. But in 14 days we will move to Vienna and I suggest to you to plan your visit perhaps for one of the last days of this month.” Freud struggled with mouth cancer until his death in 1939. The pain had become so severe that he committed suicide with the help of a physician friend, Max Schur, who administered fatal doses of morphine over the course of two days. Toned upper edge. Smoothed folds with overall wrinkling.

186.UNUSED WOODSTOCK TICKET On August 15-17, 1969, the village of Bethel, NY (with a normal population of 5000) became the third largest city in the state. In a time of war, demonstrations, riots, racial and social unrest, over 400,000 young people from across the nation would converge on Max Yasgur’s 600 acre dairy farm for three days of peace, love and music. Many parked as far as 10 miles away. Some were called flower children, hippies, or yippies ... some just wanted to party (before being called to war) ... others were just curious. But they would show the world that people of all races, creeds, religions and social backgrounds could co-exist without violence. As the hordes began crossing the security fences, it became a free concert featuring 31 of the biggest bands and performers of the time. Through pouring rain, with inadequate food or water, medical or sanitation facilities, all would help their fellow man. It would create a moment that would change their lives as well as those of future generations. All would leave touched by the ...Woodstock Experience!

Her iconic bathing suit poster made her the number-one pin-up girl of the World War II era. It was later included in the Life magazine project “100 Photographs that Changed the World”. Hosiery specialists of the era often noted the ideal proportions of her legs as thigh (18.5”), calf (12”), and ankle (7.5”). Grable’s legs were famously insured by her studio for $1,000,000 with Lloyds of London.Grable appeared in several smash-hit musical films in the 1940s, most notable: Mother Wore Tights in 1947, with frequent co-star Dan Dailey. She came to prominence in 1939 when she signed with Twentieth Century-Fox and signed on to appear opposite Ethel Merman in the Broadway musical Du Barry Was a Lady. But it was not until she was called back to Hollywood to replace Fox’s musical queen, Alice Faye, in Down Argentine Way, that she became a household name. She was known by several nicknames during her heyday in the ‘40s, including “the girl with the million dollar legs,” “the quick-silver blonde,” “the queen of the Hollywood musical,” and “the darling of the forties.”

Considered in the ranks of Cobb, Wagner, and Jackson is the Washington Senators’ mound master Walter Johnson. So accomplished was his career that he was one of the first five players to be inducted into Baseball’s Hall of Fame in 1936. A Connecticut arms laboratory recorded Walter Johnson’s fastball at 134 feet per second. That is equal to ninety-nine miles per hour, a speed the lanky farmboy was somehow able to generate with a smooth sidearmed motion that baffled and certainly terrified opposing batters. In the blink of an eye... it was over. This card is Widely considered to be Johnson’s rookie, as no other cards dedicated to him conclusively predate this issue, this card is likewise the most valuable entry in the T204 set. The Ramly series is far more scarce in general than any of the other major tobacco sets issued during the period, and Johnson remains one of its most elusive residents. this is the only 4.5 VG-EX, graded by PSA and when looking at this example it seems to be a very conservative grade and one finds only light corner blunting and is a beautiful clean well centered example. With no shortage of aesthetic appeal, this solid example of this classic card deserves high ranking in any vintage collection and has the look of a much higher graded card.
