Harry Kleiman, Animation Expert When young Harry Kleiman’s family moved to Los Angeles in 1968, the cartoon fanatic—insatiable in his appetite for all things animated—began spending nearly every day after school visiting animation studios, learning about the process, and meeting the industry’s icons: Walter Lantz, Bob Clampett, Bill Hanna and Joseph Barbera, Chuck Jones, Marc Davis, Ollie Johnston, Frank Thomas, Ward Kimball, Grim Natwick, and Friz Freleng. These meetings sparked what would become his lifelong passion and business pursuit. In 1980, Kleiman finished college and founded Collectors Paradise Galleries, attending dozens of conventions each year to buy, sell, and—his favorite—educate new collectors. In 1982, he was the first person to approach the Don Bluth Studio about selling their original cels from The Secret of Nimh. He also began making deals with Gary Goldman, offering cels from Dragon’s Lair and Space Ace. In 1984, he partnered Collectors Gallery in Studio City, where he was introduced to fellow animation enthusiasts from around the world. Over the years, Kleiman accumulated one of the most impressive animation art collections in existence, portions of which he generously lent out to animation scholars to continue broadening the world’s understanding and appreciation of this beloved art form. As an animation veteran who has spent his life studying, buying, and selling, Kleiman is eager to branch out and educate the next generation. We are proud to be a part of his lifetime of passion.

Rare 1787 Potomack Company payroll document, boldly signed by George Washington 1. George Washington Document Signed. Manuscript

DS, signed “Go: Washington,” one page, 8.75 x 16, January 3, 1787. Potomack Company payroll document for workers at Shenandoah Falls from September 29–November 12, 1786, overseen by Alexander Pollock, Thomas Pollock Robert Duke, and James Hamilton, listing the names of over fifty men along with their occupations, number of days worked, rate of pay, and amount owed. Endorsed on the reverse by George Washington, John Fitzgerald, and George Gilpin as directors of the Potomac Company. In very good condition, with archival repairs to fold separations; Washington’s crisp signature remains bold and unaffected. One of George Washington’s greatest interests in the period between the end of the Revolutionary War and the start of his presidency was the development of the picturesque Potomac River as a navigable inland transportation route. The Potowmack Company, formed to accomplish this task using a

series of locks and canals, was formed in 1785 and Washington was named the company’s president. The company’s 1785 charter provided ‘liberal wages’ for ‘any Number not exceeding one hundred good Hands with provisions and a reasonable Quantity of Spirits.’ These laborers led a difficult life, being required to remove a certain amount of rock and debris before receiving their rations of spirits. With an eye toward the greater good of the nation, Washington’s ambitions surpassed those of the ordinary businessman—he believed that improved infrastructure would strengthen the fledgling United States, with the Potomac Canal forming a literal link from east to west and binding together territories in a ‘chain which could never be broken.’ The project was beset by constant difficulty: insufficient funding and constant legal trouble contributed to the company’s ineffectiveness and eventual failure. A significant document associated with a major early American infrastructure project. Starting Bid $1000

“The use of my fathers name for the purposes to which Mr. Sheppard would now apply it is an injury to his memory”—a lengthy, impassioned letter from John Quincy Adams refuting his father’s support of ‘the Masonic Institution’

4. John Quincy Adams Autograph Letter Signed.

ALS as a Massachusetts Congressman, four pages on two sheets, 7.5 x 9.5, August 22, 1831. On the eve of the 1831 National Anti-Masonic Convention, John Quincy Adams pens a candid and lengthy handwritten letter to Stephen Bates, vehemently refuting the suggestion that his father was ever a member or supporter of Masonry. In part: “The letter from my father to the Grand Lodge of Massachusetts which Mr. Sheppard has thought proper to introduce into his address, was a complementary answer to a friendly and patriotic address of the Grand lodge to him. In it he expressly states that he had never been initiated in the Order. He therefore knew nothing of their Secrets—their Oaths—nor their Penalties... That Mr. Sheppard should resort to a letter from my father, a professedly uninitiated man, to liberate the Masonic Institution from the unrefuted charge of unlawful Oaths of horrible and

disgusting penalties, and Secrets, the divulging of which had been punished by a murder unsurpassed in human atrocity, is to me passing strange. All that my father knew of Masonry in 1798 was that it was favourable to the support of civil authority, and this he inferred from the characters of intimate friends of his, and excellent men who had been members of the Society…The use of my fathers name for the purposes to which Mr. Sheppard would now apply it is an injury to his memory, which I deem it my duty as far as may be in my power to redress. You observe he says, he never had been initiated in the Masonic Order. And I have more than once heard from his own lips why he had never enjoyed that felicity.” Matted and framed to an overall size of 22 x 15.25; frame backing features windows for viewing other pages. In fine condition, with a few small stains to the last page. Starting Bid $1000

“It is true the people in 1840 were deluded by the humbuggery of coons & coonskins, hard cider, big balls, & log cabins...and I now predict, that such humbuggery will never he[re]after deludge the American people”

George Harris, editor of the Nashville Union, expressing his delight with the result of the 1842 midterm elections, criticizing the propaganda associated with the 1840 presidential campaign, and denying the claims of Democratic newspapers that he and his former vice president, John C. Calhoun, had reconciled. In part: “I have never despaired of our republican system— have allways relied on the virtue of the sovereign people to defend & protect the Constitution & glorious Union. It is true the people in 1840 were deluded by the humbuggery of coons & coonskins, hard cider, big balls, & log cabins, but I allways believed that as soon as this canvass was over, and the people began to seriously reflect, their eyes would be opened from delusion under which they acted, & the recoil would be such, as we see realized all over this union—and I now predict, that

such humbuggery will never he[re]after deludge the American people—[the] republican system will long endure...When Mr. Calhoun’s name has been introduced as a candidate for the presidency, I have uniformly replied that a national convention fresh from the people must decide upon the candidate; and whether that be Mr. Van Buren, Mr. Calhoun, or Mr. Buchannan which may be selected, the whole Democratic Party must unite upon him—that the object of the Whiggs will be to endeavour to divide the republi[can] ranks, by getting more than one candidate into the field, like Bell with Judge White, to divide and conquer…Should Mr. Calhoun be selected by the Democratic Peoples Convention to be holden, I as one of the Democrats would…support [the] candidate thus represented.” He adds a handwritten postscript on the address leaf, signed with his initials, “A. J.” Professionally repaired and restored to near fine condition, with a small tear to the edge of the last page. Accompanied by a handsome custom-made finely bound full morocco leather case.

signed twice, “Dwight D. Eisenhower,” one page both sides, 8 x 10, August 31, 1945 (but curiously indicating his election to membership on June 25, 1945). Eisenhower’s application for a life membership in the Military Order of the World Wars, New York Chapter, a veterans’ fraternal order founded after World War I to perpetuate the democratic ideals for which they fought. On the front, Eisenhower’s personal details are filled out in type, indicating his highest attained rank as “Gen. of the Army” and mailing address as “c/o War Department.” Further detailed are filled out on the reverse, indicating his graduation from West Point in 1915, his first commission (“June 12, 1915, Rank: 2nd Lt.”), his last commission (“Dec. 20, 1944, Rank: Gen. of Army”), and service record during World War I. Both sides are signed in ink by Gen. Eisenhower. In fine condition, with minor loss to the top edge, and a strip of toning along the bottom edge. Signed shortly after German surrender in World War II, this is a remarkable explication of Eisenhower’s service record in the First World War—and somewhat humorous, as the highest-ranking Army officer still had to fill out a form in order to join. An extraordinary piece of presidential and military history. Starting Bid $200

Nixon confirms his ‘secret’ aid pledge to Hanoi and comments on “extensive discussions with Chairman Mao and Premier Chou En-lai” 33. Richard Nixon Autograph Letter and (2) Typed Letters. Important archive of correspondence from former

President Richard Nixon to Congressman Lester L. Wolff, chairman of the House International Relations Subcommittee on Asian and Pacific Affairs, confirming and defending his secret offer of aid to Hanoi during the 1972-1973 Vietnam peace conference and invoking executive privilege. Includes: ALS signed “RN,” one page, 7.25 x 10.5, personal letterhead, May 14, 1977. Rare handwritten letter to “Lester,” introducing his typed letter and asking that it be made public, concluding: “I wish you & your colleagues well as you work in behalf of a bipartisan foreign policy which will serve the cause of peace & freedom in the years ahead.”

The important TLS is signed “Richard Nixon,” four pages, 7.25 x 10.5, personal letterhead May 14, 1977. To “Congressman Wolff,” in part: “As I am sure you are aware, your request of February 22nd presents some fundamental and serious Constitutional questions. In 1953 a Committee of the House of Representatives sought to subpoena former President Truman to inquire about matters of which he had personal knowledge while he served as President. President Truman’s response states what I believe is the correct Constitutional guideline which a former President must follow. He said: ‘…In spite of my personal willingness to cooperate with your committee, I feel constrained by my duty to the people of the United States to decline to comply with the subpoena. In doing so, I am carrying out the provisions of the Constitution of the United States; and am following a long line of precedents, commencing with George Washington himself in 1796. Since his day, Presidents Jefferson, Monroe, Jackson, Tyler, Polk, Fillmore, Buchanan, Roosevelt, Coolidge, Hoover and Franklin D. Roosevelt have declined to respond to subpoenas or demands for information of various kinds by Congress…It must be obvious to you that if the doctrine of separation of powers and the independence of the Presidency is to have any value at all, it must be equally applicable to a President after his term of office has expired when he is sought to be examined with respect to any acts occurring while he is President. The doctrine would be shattered, and the President, contrary to our fundamental theory of our constitutional government, would become a mere arm of the Legislative Branch of the Government if he would feel during his term of office that his every act might be subject to official inquiry and possible distortion for political

purposes.’ I, too, shall adhere to this precedent. However, because the issue of aid to the Hanoi Government is currently under consideration in the Congress, and without waiving the separation of powers principle, I want to be as helpful as I can in providing voluntarily my recollection of events surrounding the aid negotiation.” He goes on to quote from his ‘Address to the Nation on Plan for Peace in Vietnam’ of January 25, 1972, from the Peace Agreement of January 23, 1973, and from his message to Pham van dong of February 1, 1973. He continues: “The aid proposal was not at any time presented to them as a part of the ‘price’ to obtain the Peace Agreement. Dr. Kissinger and I consistently and repeatedly rejected the idea that aid was to be provided as ‘reparations.’ Throughout we indicated that, just as we helped our enemies in World War II—Germany and Japan—rebuild their economies, we would apply the same principle to Hanoi. The Hanoi Government has violated the agreement in areas too numerous to mention. They refused to withdraw their forces from Cambodia and Laos, as required by the Peace Agreement. By far their most blatant violation of the Agreement was their crossing the DMZ and massively invading South Vietnam in early 1975. There is no commitment of any kind, moral or legal, to provide aid to the Hanoi Government. On the contrary, I can think of no action which would be less justified or more immoral than to provide any aid whatever to the Hanoi Government, in view of their flagrant violations of the peace accords.” The significant second TLS, dated February 14, 1979, declines to testify before Wolff’s subcommittee and comments on the situation in China: “I see no useful purpose to be served by my trying to second-guess President Carter’s P.R.C. normalization decision. Any one of us might have handled the situation differently, but now that the decision has been made we should look to the future and not to the past. With regard to the questions you raised in your letter, Dr. Kissinger and I had extensive discussions with Chairman Mao and Premier Chou En-lai on the Taiwan issue in 1972. We could not reach an agreement and consequently stated our positions separately in the Shanghai Communique.” In overall fine condition. Accompanied by associated correspondence from Nixon’s assistant, John V. Brennan, and some other related photocopies and transcripts.Starting Bid $2500

In this instance, he aims to use his engine to support cost savings for the French Navy. Starting Bid $300

Tesla replies regarding naval telegraphy amidst his attempts to “communicate with and possibly to transmit energy to Europe”

150. Nikola Tesla Autograph Letter Signed. ALS signed

“N. Tesla,” four pages on two adjoining sheets, 5.75 x 6.75, personal monogram letterhead, May 18, 1899. Handwritten letter to Rear Admiral Francis J. Higginson by Nikola Tesla, from the Alta Vista Hotel in Colorado Springs, in part: “My coming here was necessary because I wanted to obtain some data in high altitudes in view of my attempt to communicate with and possibly to transmit energy to Europe. These data though they are for a different purpose will also be useful in telegraphy. The work here will keep me working three to four weeks, but on my return I shall immediately devote as much of my time as possible to the task of establishing a thoroughly satisfactory and reliable communication with the lightship.” In very good to fine condition, with light staining to the right side. In May, Higginson had written to Tesla on the subject of wireless telegraphy, asking if he would be able to develop a system to be deployed on Light-Vessel No. 66, Nantucket Shoals, Mass., lying about 60 miles south of Nantucket Island. At the time, Tesla had patents pending on basic radio technologies, which would be granted in 1900. In spite of Tesla’s initial interest, the plan would not come to fruition—the Navy refused to finance the project, and also found Tesla rather difficult to work with.

Higginson continued to advocate for wireless communications technology within the government, and in 1901 Marconi wireless telegraph equipment was ‘temporarily and experimentally installed’ on the Nantucket lightship. In 1904, it would become the first US lightship to be permanently equipped with radio— though not of Tesla’s design. Nikola Tesla had arrived in Colorado Springs earlier in May, and he spent the summer conducting experiments related to both wireless telegraphy and power transmission. It was during this period that he reported hearing unusual, rhythmic sounds from his receiver. In a letter to Julian Hawthorne, Tesla contended that these signals were evidence that ‘intelligent beings on a neighboring planet’ must be scientifically more advanced than Earthlings. It has since been hypothesized that Tesla may have intercepted Marconi’s European experiments in July 1899—Marconi may have transmitted the letter S (dot/ dot/dot) in a naval demonstration, the same three impulses that Tesla hinted at hearing in Colorado—or signals from another early experimenter in wireless transmission. In any event, this is a significant handwritten letter by Nikola Tesla, written during one of his most influential and productive periods of experimentation. Starting Bid $5000

Wallace,” three pages on two adjoining sheets, 4.5 x 7, December 21, 1892. Handwritten letter to English botanist and taxonomist Maxwell T. Masters on a political matter concerning the opening of Kew Gardens to the public, in part: “A letter I wrote to Mr. Churchill on the subject was shown to Dyer, & by him shown to Shaw Lefevre,—in which, while stating reasons for not opening the Gardens earlier to the public I strongly urged the simultaneous opening of the Museums & North Gallery at noon, against which there can be no objections whatever but of the small extra cost of supervision. I wish that had also been included in the Memorial, as it would have shown that botanists are thoughtful of the public (who it must be remembered pay for the gardens) as well as of themselves. I told Mr. Churchill I would not sign the Memorial unless this was included, & I only do so now because I know my protest has come before the First Commissioner.

After reading Mein Kampf, de Gaulle warns against misunderstanding Hitler’s intentions: “The new Germany promised to the German people cannot exist if the powerful Russia remains in its eastern marches”

Handwritten letter to a friend, commenting on his new understanding of Adolf Hitler’s designs following a reading of Mein Kampf, and anxiously observing the readiness of Russian forces to the east. In part (translated): “Will this war finally begin? I measure all your anguish, you two of whose sons are waiting for the moment to defend the fatherland, and as a father, I share it. I intend to say that the absence of a second front to the east will force us to contain the entire German army, that the French and the English will once again be faced with History and its recurrences. This is a point of view that I do not share, because it would be to misunderstand Hitler’s intentions. You who, like me, have read his writings and his works [Mein Kampf], know that the new Germany promised to the German people cannot exist if the powerful Russia remains in its eastern

marches. The maneuvers carried out by Stalin in Finland and the flaws in the command demonstrate the unpreparedness of the Russian soldiers and their structural weaknesses. By letting his ally wage his own war, the Chancellor and his generals have a remarkable vantage point. This war will be a long one, the time we waste today others are utilizing. History and future generations will never understand that such a large army, uniting the two most powerful countries in the world, preferred waiting to action, thus leaving the enemy the opportunity to organize the front at its sole convenience... I come to wonder about the interest displayed for the President of the Council to see Colonel de Gaulle present to him in person his theories on the fair and proper use of modern weapons.

The steamy love letters of Czar Alexander II and his mistress: “I have such a passion for making bingerle… I need to reimmerse myself in you”

162. Alexander II Archive of (5) Handwritten Love Letters. Remarkable archive of love letters between Emperor

Alexander II of Russia and his young mistress, Catherine ‘Katia’ Dolgorukova, totaling ten handwritten letters (five by Alexander and five by Katia) amounting to over forty pages, circa 1868-1871. Their torrid affair produced a massive, steamy correspondence—they often wrote back and forth multiple times a day, sometimes with commentary on their erotic exploits. They took some lengths to conceal the relationship, never signing their letters and using the code-word ‘bingerle’ to refer to the act of copulation. The five handwritten letters from Alexander II total 21 pages, most on both sides of adjoining sheets, 5 x 8, dated from 1868–1869, and are mainly in French, with a few Russian phrases (usually in the Latin alphabet), plus instances of their code-language. The five handwritten letters from Katia total

20 pages, all on adjoining sheets, 5.25 x 8, dated from November–December 1871 (dates written in Alexander’s hand). An excerpt from Alexander’s first letter, in small part: “I come home imbued like you, dear adored angel, with our good sunshine and we can ask each other the same question: what have we done with each other? ‘Cause we’re getting crazier about each other every day….Oh! my Angel, I have such a passion for making bingerle, since our meetings, that I do not know what to become and I felt that it was getting wet at my sleigh after we parted near the bridge.…I need to reimmerse myself in you.…Oh! thank you for telling me that you feel that it is you alone who connects me to life and that you feel loved with the same passion as you love me….Alas! we’ll have to wait until tomorrow night, but also I foresee how angrily we’ll rush at each other.” Starting Bid $1000

Later, Rodrigo de Leon was considered a major factor in Granada’s [1491-1492] victory over the remaining Moors in the final years of the Reconquest. As a result, he was decorated by the Crown and given many titles and privileges, enhancing the Ponce de Leon family’s overall royal prestige. Rodrigo became Duke of Cadiz in 1484, and was briefly succeeded by his daughter, Francisca, the subject of our document. Francisca was a second cousin of famed Spanish explorer and conquistador Juan Ponce De Leon and, after her marriage to his brother Luis, became his sister-in-law as well. Luis was the first marquis of Zahara and fifth lord of Villagarcia. Cadiz was an important port city from which Christopher Columbus launched his second (1493) and fourth (1502) voyages to the New World and, later, became home to the Spanish treasure fleet.

In 1859, before returning to the 2nd Cavalry Regiment in Texas, Lee was called to command the militia raid on abolitionist John Brown at Harper’s Ferry. After returning to his post in San Antonio, Texas seceded from the Union in February 1861, after which Lee returned to Washington and was promoted to colonel and offered the rank of major general in the fight against the seceding states. Though opposed to secession, Lee’s fidelity to Virginia outweighed his loyalty to the Union, and in April 1861, he accepted command of Virginia’s Confederate forces, eventually becoming its general-in-chief.

Amazing, uncommonly large portrait of General Sherman from 1887 329. William T. Sherman Signed Photograph. Tremendous 7 x 11.5 imperial bust portrait of William Tecumseh Sherman in a suit and bow tie, originally taken by Falk Studios of New York, signed in the lower portion of the image in black ink, “W. T. Sherman, General 1887.” Framed and in fine condition, with minor ink adhesion issues, and scattered tiny foxing to the lower half of the image.As the owner of Falk Studios, Benjamin ‘Jake’ Falk was the most reputable theatrical portraitist working in New York at the turn of the 20th century. The photographer used artificial light sources to create portraits considered to be the most dramatic images available. At the time Sherman signed this portrait, the former general had only been retired from army life for three years, was living in New York City, and was undoubtedly familiar with Falk and his work. It is likely that this image was signed during one of Sherman’s many visits to the New York theater scene, or via his role as a colorful speaker at one of the numerous dinners and banquets to which he had been invited.

The countersignature by William Winer Cooke adds greatly to this document: Cooke, a member of the so-called ‘Custer Gang,’ was one of the commander’s most loyal men and remained so until the end, found by Custer’s side on the fields at Little Bighorn in 1876. The appointee, Ferdinand A. Culbertson, was still serving in the 7th Cavalry’s Company A during the Battle of the Little Bighorn and did not participate in the massacre.

made an impassioned speech at the Terowie railway station on March 20, declaring, ‘I came through and I shall return.’ MacArthur did return to the Philippines in the fall of 1944. The General, who had been observing military actions from the cruiser U.S.S. Nashville moored in Leyte Gulf, took a landing craft towards the beach on the afternoon of October 20, 1944.

Pray for peace, prepare for war— General Patton on combat, its history and cause, and how a powerful America remains “the one hope for a peaceful world”

333. George S. Patton Typed Manuscript Signed with Accompanying Typed Letter Signed. Significant

typed manuscript by George S. Patton, signed “G. S. Patton, Jr.,” two pages, 8 x 10.5, sent by General Patton to Colonel F. D. Fitzgerald, chief of the Public Relations Division at the United States Forces headquarters, on October 12, 1945, six weeks after the unconditional surrender of Japan aboard the USS Missouri, an event that officially ended World War II. The compelling two-page statement consists of Patton’s opinion of warfare, why it occurs, why it’s necessary, and how future bloodshed can be prevented. The manuscript is accompanied by a typed cover letter, also signed by Patton, written on his personal Headquarters Fifteenth US Army letterhead. It reads: “In order to obviate the necessity of being constantly called up by correspondents to ascertain my feelings toward future wars, and of being misquoted when such feelings have been ascertained, I am herewith sending you a statement which you can give out as you see fit.”

Patton’s statement, in part: “Wars are not the result of a set of logical circumstances. Almost invariably wars are produced through the efforts of a few unbalanced people who play on the many by exploiting thwarted ambitions and the emotions of avarice or revenge…My thesis is that had we been prepared, several of the wars we have engaged in would not have happened and all of them would have been much shorter and less bloody. I have studied and practised war all my life. Therefore I am utterly opposed to it but I am not an ostrich. I do not bury my head in the sands of wishful thinking. I am firmly convinced that we must have universal training because the one hope for a peaceful world is a powerful America and the only means of producing a powerful America is to initiate and maintain adequate means to instantly check aggressors. Unless we are so armed and prepared the next war will probably destroy us. No one who has lived in a destroyed country can view such a possibility with anything but horror.” In fine condition.

be lost in getting it merely for the immediate possession of Vado Bay it was no object for us if the General chose to leave them to the eastward.” The Baron assured Nelson that “the General would send me a tableaux of his plan of operations, that the General desired… [that] the most perfect harmony would be kept up with me, and that from my character as well as from my exactness…he was assured all would go well for the common cause…[and] that our enemies should be convinced of the most perfect harmony subsisting between the Allies.” Neatly and boldly signed at the conclusion by Nelson.

Handwritten letter from Paris by the young “V. W. van Gogh,” addressing his love of literature 410. Vincent van Gogh Autograph Letter Signed.

Rare ALS in Dutch, signed “V. W. van Gogh,” one page both sides, 4 x 5.25, September 2, 1875. Handwritten letter to Egbert Borchers, his friend in The Hague. In part (translated): “Thank you for your letter which I received this morning & which pleased me. At Christmas I hope to come to Holland & if I can, straight to The Hague & we must make sure we don’t miss each other. I’m glad you still enjoy reading, that’s always good, at least reading such books as you read. I’m keeping it up, too; an employee in our business who is currently on vacation to Holland has just promised me to bring me a copy of ‘Motley, History of the 17 Provinces.’ As you know, I’m in Paris now, so I’ve been wandering quite a bit since we saw each other on my last day in The Hague & it’s as if that was quite a bit more than two years ago.” Addressed on the reverse in van Gogh’s hand. In fine condition, with minor clipping to two corner tips, affecting nothing. A rare and unusual variation of van Gogh’s signature, as most of his letters are signed with just his first name. Van Gogh worked for the art dealers Goupil & Cie in The Hague from July 1869 to May 1873, when he was transferred to London after completing his apprenticeship. Goupil was one of Europe’s most renowned fine art dealers, and also a publisher of prints and engravings. At the young age of twenty, Vincent was earning a fine living with a salary higher than his

father’s. During this period, he learned a great deal about the art market, the old masters, and contemporary art. When his younger brother Theo took a position with Goupil, Vincent excitedly wrote to him: ‘I am very happy that you work in the same firm. It is such a splendid house; the more one works there, the more ambition it gives you.’ At the time he wrote this letter, Vincent had been transferred to Goupil’s Paris branch. There, he became increasingly religiously fervent and grew resentful of issues such as the degree to which the firm commodified art. His increasingly poor performance resulted in his dismissal in January 1876, just four months after the present letter. Stricken by poverty in the ensuing years, van Gogh finally picked up a paintbrush in 1880, some five years after he penned this epistle. A primary topic in this letter is van Gogh’s love of literature—an insatiable reader, he counted Dickens, Zola, Shakespeare, and Maupassant among his favorite authors. He often commented on his reading in letters to his brother Theo, providing insight into his bookish diversions. Vincent’s favorite books guided his thoughts, defined his worldview, and influenced his art. A recent study of his reading, Vincent’s Books: Van Gogh and the Writers Who Inspired Him by Mariella Guzzoni, was published in 2020. Starting Bid $20000

Remarkable musical manuscript by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, featuring four complete canons

481. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart Handwritten Musical Manuscript. Handwritten musical manuscript by celebrated

Austrian composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, four pages on two adjoining sheets, 11.25 x 8.25, [Bologna, July/ August 1770, or Salzburg, from a later period]. The significant manuscript contains four complete canon compositions (each with theme and interpretation), as well as the theme of one other canon, all of them with autograph texts. The manuscript features: a three-part canon titled “Canon ad duodecimam: clama ne cesses” on the first page, with counterpart, set to “Confitebor tibi Domine,” 8 bars. Below, titled “Canon ad diapente, Diapason et Diapason diapente”, a 4-part canon, set to “Cano peana magnum Deu[m] appollinem,” 5 bars. A 9-part canon on pages 2 and 3, set to “A musi[s] heliconiadibus incipiamus canere,” 17 bars, with the voices following one bar at a time. A 3-part canon on page 4, set to the words “in cipe menalios mecum,” 15 bars. Below, the theme of another canon, titled “Canon. Ter voce ciemus” with the addition “Voce ter insonuit,” set to “Tebana bella cantus Troiana cantat alter,” as well as their reversal “Troiana cantat alter Tebana bella cantus.” The Köchel catalogue (6th ed., 1964) lists the first canon at nr. 73r (3) in a differing version, the second canon isn’t mentioned, the third and fourth appear at nr. 73x (13 and 14), the fifth canon is part of nr. 73r (4).

Regarding nr. 73x, the Köchel catalogue reports that “when Leopold and Wolfgang were in Bologna in summer 1770, Padre Martini presented them with the first two volumes of his three-volume history of music [“Storia della musica”], of volume two probably merely with the plates…Wolfang was presumably more attracted to the artistic canonic structures than to the scholarly text. Dissolving them was likely part of his education with Padre Martini. Whether all of the manuscripts originate from that time remains unclear” [transl.]. It’s possible that Mozart reengaged himself in the canons at a later point in his life as well. The first canon appears to be modelled on Martini’s canon I/67, canons two and three resembling canon II/1. The themes of the fifth canon exactly correspond to the vignette from the “Storia della Musica” II/41. From the collection of Aloys Fuchs in Vienna, who combined the 14 canonic studies, mentioned in the Köchel catalogue at nr. 73x, to an anthology (the manuscript of the first 12 studies was sold in 1958 by J. A. Stargardt). Later sold again by J. A. Stargardt in 1970 (with reproductions of pages 2 and 3 in their original size on folding plates). In fine condition, with traces of stitching on the left edge and a small repaired tear to the margin of the last page. Starting Bid $25000

Conditions of Sale ANYONE EITHER REGISTERING TO BID OR PLACING A BID (“BIDDER”) ACCEPTS THESE CONDITIONS OF SALE AND ENTERS INTO A LEGALLY, BINDING, ENFORCEABLE AGREEMENT WITH R&R AUCTION COMPANY OF MASSACHUSETTS, LLC (“RR AUCTION”) TOGETHER WITH BIDDER, THE “PARTIES”). This Agreement contains important provisions that control rights and liabilities, and specifically has provisions governing how disputes are handled as well as LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY that can be imposed upon RR Auction, WAIVER OF JURY and ARBITRATION PROVISIONS. This acknowledgement is a material term of these Conditions of Sale and of the consideration under which RR Auction agrees to these terms. PLEASE READ CAREFULLY. The following terms and conditions (“Conditions of Sale”) constitute the sole terms and conditions under which RR Auction will offer for sale and sell the property on its website, and/or described in the catalog of items for auction (the “Catalog”). These Conditions of Sale constitute a binding agreement between the Parties with respect to the auction in which Bidder participates (the “Auction”). By bidding at the Auction, whether in person, through an agent or representative, by telephone, facsimile, online, absentee bid, or by any other form of bid or by any other means, Bidder acknowledges the thorough reading and understanding of all of these Conditions of Sale, all descriptions of items in the Catalog, and all matters incorporated herein by reference, and agrees to be fully bound thereby.

Section 1 The Parties1.1 RR Auction and Auction This Auction is presented by RR Auction, a d/b/a/ of R&R Auction Company of Massachusetts, LLC, as identified with the applicable licensing information on the title page of the Catalog or on the www.RRauction.com Internet site. The Auction is conducted under these Conditions of Sale. Announcements and corrections from the podium at live auctions and those made through the Conditions of Sale appearing on the Internet at RRauction.com supersede those in the printed Catalog. 1.2 Bidder Bidder shall mean the original Bidder on the property offered for sale by RR Auction and not any subsequent owner or other person who may acquire or have acquired an interest therein. If Bidder is an agent, the agency must be disclosed in writing to RR Auction prior to the time of sale, otherwise the benefits of the warranty shall be limited to the agent and not transferable to the undisclosed principal. The rights granted to Bidder under these Conditions of Sale are personal and may not be assigned or transferred to any other person or entity, whether by operation of law or otherwise without the express written assent of RR Auction. Bidder may not transfer, assign, or otherwise convey these Conditions of Sale or any of the rights herein, and such purported transfer, assignment, or conveyance shall be null and void. No third party may rely on any benefit or right conferred on any Bidder by these Conditions of Sale, and no third party is intended as a beneficiary of these Conditions of Sale. Bids will not be accepted from minor persons under eighteen (18) years of age without a parent or legal guardian’s written consent containing an acknowledgment of the Conditions of Sale herein and indicating their agreement to be bound thereby on behalf of the Bidder. All Bidders must meet RR Auction’s qualifications to bid. Any Bidder who is not a client in good standing of RR Auction may be disqualified at RR Auction’s sole option and will not be awarded lots. Such determination may be made by RR Auction in its sole and unlimited discretion, at any time prior to, during, or even after the close of the Auction. RR Auction reserves the right to exclude any person from the Auction. If an entity places a bid, then the person executing the bid on behalf of the entity agrees to personally guarantee payment for any successful bid and agrees to be bound by these Conditions of Sale in addition to company for whom the Bidder is acting By accepting the Conditions of Sale, Bidder personally and unconditionally guarantees payment. Section 2 Bidding Privileges

2.1 In order to place bids, Bidders who have not established an account with RR Auction must either furnish satisfactory credit information (including two collectibles-related business references) or supply additional information if requested, well in advance of the Auction. Bidders who are not members of RRAuction.com should pre-register before the close of the Auction to allow adequate time to contact references. Privileges will be granted at the sole discretion of RR Auction. Additionally, Bidders who have not previously established credit or who wish to bid in excess of their established credit history may be required to provide a cash deposit prior to RR Auction’s acceptance of a bid. Check writing privileges and immediate delivery of merchandise may also be determined by pre-approval of credit based on a combination of criteria: RRAuction.com history, related industry references, bank verification, a credit bureau report and/or a personal guarantee for a corporate or partnership entity in advance of the Auction venue. 2.2 Bidder providing any false or misleading information provided in connection with the registration shall be a material breach of the Conditions of Sale and in addition to any other remedies at law shall excuse RR Auction from performance under these Conditions of Sale, including the right to any refund. 2.2 Bidding privileges may be revoked without notice, for any reason, at the sole discretion of RR Auction . Section 3 Buyer’s Premium 3.1 The Bidder acknowledges and agrees that a 25% buyer’s premium will be added to the hammer price on all individual lots sold in timed and live Auctions. . For payment other than by cash, delivery will not be made unless and until full payment has been received by RR Auction, i.e., check or wired funds have fully cleared. Unless otherwise agreed in writing, signed by RR Auction, payment in full is due within thirteen (13) calendar days of the Auction or within twelve (12) calendar days of the invoice date, whichever is earlier. Bidder’s failure to pay any payment in full when due required shall constitute a material breach, and in addition to other damages available under contract or law, at RR Auction’s election, RR Auction may cancel the sale and require full premium still be due along with interest at 1.5% per month from the date of breach, or at the maximum legally allowable rate. Section 4 Bidding 4.1 Each Bidder’s determination of its bid should be based upon its own examination of the item(s) and independent investigation, rather than the any reliance as to what is represented in the Catalog, online or elsewhere. Bidder affirms that it regards any statements made by RR Auction concerning the item as solely opinion and that Bidder is making its own inspection and independent evaluation of the goods, and is not relying upon any description or statements by RR Auction (including as to quality, authenticity, provenance, ownership, liens existing, on goods legality, or value) in making its determination to bid on or purchase an item. In any purchase or sale, the value of the item(s) is determined by the price. THE BIDDER HEREBY ASSUMES ALL RISKS CONCERNING ANY AND ALL PURCHASES TO THE FULLEST EXTENT UNDER APPLICABLE LAW. 4.2 RR AUCTION IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ERRORS IN BIDDING. A Bidder should make certain to bid on the correct lot and that the bid is the maximum (plus the Buyer’s Premium) that the Bidder is willing and able to pay. Since other Bidders (by mail, facsimile, online, and in person) will be present, and since a reoffering could damage the momentum of the sale, once the hammer has fallen and RR Auction has announced the winning Bidder, such Bidder is unconditionally bound to pay for the lot, even if the Bidder has made a mistake. 4.3 All prospective Bidders who examine lots in person prior to the sale shall personally assume all responsibility for any damage they cause in so doing. RR Auction shall have sole discretion in determining the value of the damage caused, which shall be promptly paid by the prospective Bidder. 4.4 Title to any lot remains with Consignor, any secured party of the Consignor, or assignee of Consignor, as the case may be, until the lot is paid for in full by Bidder and Bidder has fully satisfied any outstanding financial obligations to RR Auction (including as it concerns aby other lots). RR Auction reserves the right to require payment in full before delivering any lot to the successful Bidder. 4.5 It is the Bidder’s responsibility and obligation to have the lots fully insured while in their possession. Bidder assumes any and all risk of loss upon the earlier of shipment to Bidder or in Bidder’s possession. 4.6 Bidder grants to RR Auction or its assigns the right to offset any sums due, or found to be due by RR Auction, and to make such offset from any past, subsequent or future consignment, or items acquired by Bidder in possession or control of RR Auction or from any sums due to Bidder by RR Auction. Bidder fur-


ther grants RR Auction a lien consisting of a senior security interest (or purchase money security interest to the extent applicable) in such sums or items to the fullest extent applicable, authorizes RR Auction to file documents concerning the interest, and Bidder agrees to execute any further documents as may be reasonably necessary to grant RR Auction such security interest. Bidder agrees that RR Auction and its assigns shall be a secured party with respect to items bought by Bidder and in the possession of RR Auction, to the extent of the maximum indebtedness, plus all accrued fees and expenses, until the indebtedness is paid. 4.7 By bidding in this sale, Bidder personally and unconditionally guarantees payment. The authorized representative of any corporate Bidder who is present at the sale shall provide RR Auction or its agent, prior to the commencement of the bidding (or at the time of registration), with a statement signed by a principal, director or officer that they he or she personally and unconditionally guarantees any payment due RR Auction. 4.8 RR Auction may at its sole and absolute discretion, make loans or advances to Consignors and/or prospective Bidders. Section 5 Bidding Options 5.1 Non-Internet bids (including but not limited to in-person, facsimile, phone and mail bids) are treated similarly to floor bids in that they must be on-increment. Any in-person, facsimile, phone, or mail bids that do not conform to a full increment will be rounded up or down to the nearest full increment and this revised amount will be considered Bidder’s high bid. 5.2 When identical bids are submitted, preference is given to the first received. To ensure the greatest accuracy, written bids should be entered on the standard printed bid sheet and be received at RR Auction’s place of business at least twenty-four (24) hours before the Auction start. RR Auction is not responsible for executing mail bids or facsimile bids received on or after the day the first lot is sold, nor Internet bids submitted after the published closing time; nor is RR Auction responsible for proper execution of bids submitted by telephone, mail, facsimile, e-mail, Internet, or in person once the Auction begins. 5.3 In all Auctions, bids on an item must raise the current high bid by at least 10%, or as specified on a per-Auction basis. Bids will be accepted in whole dollar amounts only. No “buy” or “unlimited” bids will be accepted. In a live sale, bids on an item can change at the discretion of RR Auction. 5.4 RR Auction reserves the right to accept or decline any bid. Bids must be for an entire lot and each lot constitutes a separate sale. All bids are per lot unless otherwise announced. Live auction lots will be sold in their numbered sequence unless RR Auction directs otherwise. It is unlawful and illegal for Bidders to collude, pool, or agree with another Bidder to pay less than the fair value for lot(s). For live auctions, RR Auction will have final discretion in the event that any dispute should arise between Bidders. RR Auction will determine the successful Bidder, cancel the sale, or re-offer and resell the lot or lots in dispute. RR Auction will have final discretion to resolve any disputes arising after the sale and in online auctions. If any dispute arises, RR Auction’s sale record is conclusive. Section 6 Payment 6.1 Subject to fulfillment of all of the Conditions of Sale set forth herein, upon the sooner of (1) the passing of title to the offered lot pursuant to these Conditions of Sale, or (2) possession of the offered lot by the Bidder, Bidder thereupon (a) assumes full risk and responsibility (including without limitation, liability for or damage to frames or glass covering prints, paintings, photos, or other works), and (b) will immediately pay the full purchase price or such part as RR Auction may require. In addition to other remedies available to RR Auction by law, RR Auction reserves the right to impose from the date of sale a late charge of 1.5% per month of the total purchase price if payment is not made in accordance with the conditions set forth herein. All property must be removed from RR Auction’s premises by the Bidder at his/her expense not later than sixty (60) business days following its sale and, if it is not so removed, RR Auction may send the purchased property to a public warehouse for the account, at the risk and expense of the Bidder. 6.2 Payment is due upon closing of the Auction session, or upon presentment of an invoice. RR Auction reserves the right to void an invoice if payment in full is not received within thirteen (13) calendar days of the Auction or within twelve (12) calendar days of the invoice date. In cases of nonpayment, RR Auction’s election to void a sale does not relieve the Bidder from their obligation to pay RR Auction its fees (seller’s and Buyer’s Premium) on the lot and any other damages pertaining to the lot. 6.3 All sales for total invoices greater than $1,000 are strictly for cash in United States dollars (including U.S. currency, bank wire, cashier checks, eChecks, and bank money orders), and are subject to all reporting requirements.

6.4 All deliveries are subject to good funds; funds being received in RR Auction’s account before delivery of the Purchases; and all payments are subject to a clearing period. RR Auction reserves the right to determine if a check constitutes “good funds”: checks drawn on a U.S. bank are subject to a ten (10) calendar day hold, and ten (10) business days when drawn on an international bank. Clients with pre-arranged credit status may receive immediate credit for payments via e-Check, personal or corporate checks. 6.5 In the event that a Bidder’s payment is dishonored upon presentment(s), Bidder shall pay the maximum statutory processing fee set by applicable state law. If Bidder attempts to pay via check and the financial institution denies the transfer from Bidder’s bank account, or the payment cannot be completed using the selected funding source, Bidder agrees to complete payment. 6.7 If RR Auction refers any unpaid invoice to an attorney for collection, the Bidder agrees to pay and shall be liable for RR Auction’s attorney’s fees, court costs, and other collection costs incurred by RR Auction in addition to the invoice amount and interest the greater of 1.5% per month or at the maximum legally allowable rate from date of invoice to collection. If RR Auction assigns collection to its house counsel, such attorney’s time expended on the matter shall be compensated at a rate comparable to the hourly rate of independent attorneys. 6.8 RR Auction shall have a lien against the merchandise purchased by the Bidder (as well as to the extent it is a consignor any other monies owed or due to Bidder) to secure payment of the Auction invoice. RR Auction is further granted a lien and the right to retain possession of any other property of the Bidder then held by RR Auction or its affiliates to secure payment of any Auction invoice or any other amounts due RR Auction or affiliates from the Bidder. With respect to these lien rights, RR Auction shall have all the rights of a secured creditor, including but not limited to the right of sale. In addition, with respect to payment of the Auction invoice(s), the Bidder waives any and all rights of offset he might otherwise have against RR Auction and the consignor of the merchandise included on the invoice (the Consignor”). If a Bidder owes RR Auction or its affiliates on any account, RR Auction and its affiliates shall have the right to offset such unpaid account by any credit balance due Bidder, and it may secure by possessory lien any unpaid amount by any of the Bidder’s property in their possession. 6.9 All checks, cashiers checks, bank checks, or money orders are payable to R&R Auction Company of Massachusetts, LLC. RR Auction clients with an invoice totaling $1,000 or under will have the option to pay by VISA, Mastercard, Discover or Paypal. All Paypal payments must be sent to FinanceDepartment@ rrauction.com. Authorize.net, a third-party service provider contracted by RR Auction for processing on-line payments, charges a nonrefundable service fee of 3%, which will be added to your final invoice should you pay by credit/debit card. Section 7 Sales Tax RR Auction is a remote seller and we are now required to collect Sales/Use Tax from our bidders. The states that we have nexus in we will be required to collect and remit sales tax on your behalf. Each state has different requirements to meet nexus. When RR Auction has achieved a certain monetary and/or invoice threshold in each state we will apply sales tax to your total invoice. The states that are affected are: ARIZONA, ARKANSAS, CALIFORNIA, COLORADO, CONNECTICUT, FLORIDA, GEORGIA, ILLINOIS, INDIANA, IOWA, KANSAS, KENTUCKY, MAINE, MARYLAND, MASSACHUSETTS, MICHIGAN, MINNESOTA, NEBRASKA, NEVADA, NEW JERSEY, NEW YORK, NORTH CAROLINA, OHIO, OKLAHOMA, PENNSYLVANIA,RHODE ISLAND, TENNESSEE, TEXAS, UTAH, VIRGINIA, WASHINGTON, WISCONSIN If we have not achieved nexus in a particular state it is still your responsibility to pay sales tax on your purchases. The sales tax rate is determined by the State, Country, and City where purchases are shipped to. If you decide to pick up your purchases at our New Hampshire location you will not be required to pay sales tax. The State of New Hampshire does not have a general sales and use tax. All purchases picked up at our Massachusetts location will be taxed at the current rate of 6.25%. If you have a resale number please email Sue@RRAuction.com or fax to (603) 732-4288 a copy of your state resale certificate and you will be exempt from paying sales tax. Section 8 Delivery; Shipping; and Handling Charges Bidder is liable for shipping and handling and providing accurate information as to shipping or delivery locations and arranging for such. RR Auction is unable to combine purchases from other auctions or affiliates into one package for shipping purposes. Lots won will be shipped in a commercially reasonable time after payment in good funds for the merchandise and the shipping fees is received or credit extended, except when third-party shipment occurs. Bidder agrees that


service and handling charges related to shipping items which are not pre-paid may be charged to a credit card on file with RR Auction. Successful international Bidders shall provide written shipping instructions, including specified Customs declarations, to RR Auction for any lots to be delivered outside of the United States. NOTE: Declaration value shall be the item’(s) hammer price and RR Auction shall use the correct harmonized code for the lot. Domestic Bidders on lots designated for third-party shipment must designate the common carrier, accept risk of loss, and prepay shipping costs. Section 9 Title Title shall not pass to the successful Bidder until all invoices of Bidder (including those pertaining to the item(s) at issue) and amounts owed to RR Auction are paid in full. It is the responsibility of the Bidder to provide adequate insurance coverage for the items once they have been delivered to a common carrier or third-party shipper. Section 10 Rights Reserved RR Auction reserves the right, at any time before, during or after an auction has ended to: withdraw any lot before or at the time of the Auction, cancel any bid, and/or to postpone the Auction of all or any lots or parts thereof, for any reason. RR Auction shall not be liable to any Bidder in the event of such withdrawal, cancellation, or postponement under any circumstances. RR Auction reserves the right to refuse to accept bids from anyone at any time. Section 11 Conducting the Auction 11.1 RR Auction reserves the right to postpone the Auction or any session thereof for a reasonable period of time for any reason whatsoever, and no Bidder or prospective Bidder shall have any claim as a result thereof, including consequential damages. 11.2 RR Auction’s Discretion: RR Auction shall determine opening bids and bidding increments. RR Auction has the right in its absolute discretion to reject any bid in the event of dispute between Bidders or if RR Auction has doubt as to the validity of any bid, to advance the bidding at its absolute discretion and to determine the successful Bidder in the event of a dispute between Bidders, to continue the bidding or to reoffer and resell the lot in question. In the event of a dispute after the sale, RR Auctions record of final sale shall be conclusive. RR Auction also may reject any bid if RR Auction decides either that any bid is below the reserve of the lot or article or that an advance is insufficient. Unless otherwise announced by RR Auction at the time of sale, no lots may be divided for the purpose of sale. 11.3 Reserves Lots may be subject to a reserve which is the confidential minimum price below which the lot will not be sold. Consignors may not bid on their own lots or property. RR Auction may, from time to time, bid on items that it does not own. RR Auction may execute bids consecutively or otherwise up to one bid increment below the reserve. 11.4 Off-Site Bidding Bidding by telephone, facsimile, online, or absentee bidding (advance written bids submitted by mail) are offered solely as a convenience and permitted subject to advance arrangements, availability, and RR Auction’s approval which shall be exercised at RR Auction’s sole discretion. Neither RR Auction nor its agents or employees shall be held liable for the failure to execute bids or for errors relating to any transmission or execution thereof. In order to be considered for off-site bidding in any manner, Bidders must comply with all of these Conditions of Sale and the terms contained on the Registration Form. 11.5 Estimate Prices: In addition to descriptive information, each item in the Catalog sometimes includes a price range which reflects opinion as to the price expected at auction (the “Estimate Prices”). In other instances, Estimate Prices can be obtained by calling RR Auction at (603) 732-4280. The Estimate Prices are based upon various factors including prices recently paid at auction for comparable property, condition, rarity, quality, history and provenance. Estimate Prices are prepared well in advance of the sale and subject to revision. Estimates do not include the Buyer’s Premium or sales tax (see under separate heading). 11.6 Owned or Guaranteed Property: RR Auction generally offers property consigned by others for sale at public auction; in very limited occasion, lots are offered that are the property of RR Auction. 11.7 Before the Auction:

Bidder may attend pre-sale viewing for all of RR Auction’s auctions at no charge. All property to be auctioned is usually on view for several days prior to the sale. Bidder is encouraged to examine lots thoroughly. Bidder may also request condition reports (see below). RR Auction’s staff are available at viewings and by appointment. 11.8 Maximum Bids In All Auctions: To maximize Bidder’s chance of winning, RR Auction strongly encourages the use of maximum bids. RR Auction will then bid for Bidder until the lot reaches Bidder’s specified maximum. Maximum bids are strictly confidential. Placing arbitrary, non-incremental bids on lots with prior maximum bids may result in these lots being sold for less than 10% above the under Bidder’s bid. 11.9 Successful Bids: The fall of RR Auction’s hammer indicates the final bid. RR Auction will record the paddle number of the Bidder. If Bidder’s salesroom or absentee bid is successful, Bidder will be notified after the sale by mailed or emailed invoice. 11.10 Unsold Lots: If a lot does not reach the reserve, it is bought-in. In other words, it remains unsold and is returned to the Consignor. RR Auction has the right to sell certain unsold items after the close of the Auction. Such lots shall be considered sold during the Auction and all these Terms and Conditions shall apply to such sales including but not limited to the Buyer’s Premium, return rights, and disclaimers. 11.11 Bidding in Timed Auction: Bidder may open, monitor, and/or raise bids at any time before the close of a lot through www.rrauction.com. RR Auction offers a callback service the day of the Auction, but Bidder is responsible for supplying a correct telephone number(s) where Bidder can be reached until the Auction closes. Bidder must request this service in writing. RR Auction will make reasonable efforts to ensure that Bidders who request a callback are contacted if outbid; however, RR Auction does not guarantee this service and it is merely a courtesy and not an enforceable right. The auctioneer may also execute a bid on behalf of the consignor to protect the reserve, either by entering a bid in response to salesroom, telephone or absentee bids. Under no circumstances will the auctioneer place any bid on behalf of the consignor above the reserve. The auctioneer will not specifically identify bids placed on behalf of the consignor to protect the reserve. To ensure proper registration, those Bidders intending to bid via the Internet must visit www.RRauction.com and register accordingly at least one full day prior to the actual auction. Winning bidders will be notified by RR Auction. RR Auction is not responsible or liable for any problems, delays, or any other issues or problems resulting out of use of the Internet generally or specifically, including but not limited to transmission, execution or processing of bids. Any Bidder may bid on any lot prior to 6 pm EST/EDT. At that time, an extended bidding period goes into effect. If Bidder has not bid on a lot before 6 pm EST/ EDT, Bidder may not bid on that lot after 6 pm EST/EDT. Only those Bidders who have placed bids on a lot before 6 pm EST/EDT will be allowed to bid on that lot after 6 pm EST/EDT. If Bidder is the only Bidder on a lot at 6 pm EST/ EDT, that lot is awarded to Bidder. During the extended bidding period, a lot will remain open only to those who bid on that lot prior to 6 pm EST/EDT. All lots WITHOUT an opening bid at 6 pm EST/EDT will remain OPEN to ALL Bidders until 7 pm EST/EDT or until they receive their first bid. These lots will close immediately upon receipt of a bid or at 7 pm EST/EDT, whichever comes first. For all lots that are active after 7 pm EST/EDT, bidding will remain open until 30 minutes pass without a bid being placed on THAT lot (the “30 Minute Rule”). The 30 Minute Rule is applied on a PER LOT BASIS; each lot in the Auction closes individually based on bidding activity after 7 pm EST/EDT. On a PER LOT BASIS, the 30 minute timer will reset each time a bid is placed after 7 pm EST/EDT. If Bidder is the high Bidder, raising Bidder’s maximum bid will NOT reset the timer. RR Auction reserves the right to close the Auction at any time at its sole discretion. 11.12 Bidding - Internet Live Auction: Bidder may open, monitor, and/or raise bids at any time before the close of a lot through www.rrauction.com. RR Auction offers a callback service the day of the Auction, but Bidder is responsible for supplying a correct telephone number(s) where Bidder can be reached until the Auction closes. Bidder must request this service in writing. RR Auction will make reasonable efforts to ensure that Bidders who request a callback are contacted if outbid; however, RR Auction does not guarantee this service and it is merely a courtesy and not an enforceable right. To ensure proper registration, those Bidders intending to bid via the Internet must visit www.RRauction.com and register accordingly at least one full day prior to the actual auction. Winning bidders will be notified by RR Auction. RR Auction is not responsible or liable for any problems, delays, or any other issues or problems resulting out of use of the Internet generally or specifically, including but not limited to transmission, execution or processing of bids. During live internet or live auction, property is auctioned in consecutive numerical order, as it appears in the catalog. The auctioneer will accept bids from those present in the salesroom or absentee bidders participating by telephone,


internet or by written bid left with RR Auction in advance of the auction. The auctioneer may also execute a bid or bids (successively or otherwise) on behalf of the consignor to protect the reserve, either by entering a bid in response to salesroom, telephone or absentee bids. Under no circumstances will the auctioneer place any bid on behalf of the consignor above the reserve. The auctioneer will not specifically identify bids placed on behalf of the consignor to protect the reserve. All auctions for lots are with reserve unless specifically stated otherwise. During live Auctions, internet bids can be placed in real time through one or more of the following Third Party services: www.liveauctioneers.com, www.invaluable. com and www.icollector.com. RR Auction is not responsible or liable for any problems, delays, or any other issues or problems resulting out of use of the Internet generally or specifically, including but not limited to transmission, execution or processing of bids. RR Auction treats any third-party site bids as floor or telephone bids. Floor bids and telephone bids are always considered first over third party sites bids, and floor bids are considered earlier than telephone bids. All RR Auction lots purchased through the third-party sites carry an additional Buyer’s Premium. 11.13 Miscellaneous: Agreements between Bidders and Consignors to effectuate a non-sale of an item at Auction, inhibit bidding on a consigned item to enter into a private sale agreement for said item, or to utilize RR Auction’s Auction to obtain sales for non-selling consigned items subsequent to the Auction, are strictly prohibited. If a subsequent sale of a previously consigned item occurs in violation of this provision, RR Auction reserves the right to charge Bidder the applicable Buyer’s Premium and Consignor a Seller’s Commission as determined for each auction venue and by the terms of the seller’s agreement. Acceptance of these Terms and Conditions qualifies Bidder as a client who has consented to be contacted by RR Auction in the future. In conformity with ”donot-call” regulations promulgated by the Federal or State regulatory agencies, participation by the Bidder is affirmative consent to being contacted at the phone number shown in his application and this consent shall remain in effect until it is revoked in writing. RR Auction may from time to time contact Bidder concerning sale, purchase, and auction opportunities available. 11.14 Rules of Construction: RR Auction presents properties in a number of collectible fields, and as such, specific venues have promulgated supplemental Terms and Conditions. Nothing herein shall be construed to waive the general Conditions of Sale by these additional rules and shall be construed to give force and effect to the rules in their entirety. Section 12 RR Auction’s Remedies Failure of the Bidder to comply with any of these Conditions of Sale or the terms of the Registration Form is an event of material breach or default. In such event, RR Auction may, in addition to any other available remedies specifically including the right to hold the defaulting Bidder liable for the Purchase Price or to charge and collect from the defaulting Bidder’s credit or debit accounts as provided for elsewhere herein: (a) cancel the sale, retaining any payment made by the Bidder as damages (the Bidder understands and acknowledges that RR Auction will be substantially damaged should such default occur, and that damages under subpart (a) are necessary to compensate RR Auction for such damages); (b) resell the property without reserve at public auction or privately; (c) charge the Bidder interest on the Purchase Price at the rate of one and one-half percent (1.5%) per month or the highest allowable interest rate; (d) take any other action that RR Auction, in its sole discretion, deems necessary or appropriate to preserve and protect RR Auction’s rights and remedies. Should RR Auction resell the property, the original defaulting Bidder shall be liable for the payment of any deficiency in the purchase price and all costs and expenses associated there with, including but not limited to warehousing, sales-related expenses, reasonable attorney fees and court costs, commissions, incidental damages and any other charges due hereunder which were not collected or collectable. In the event that such Bidder is the successful Bidder on more than one lot and pays less than the purchase price for the total lots purchased, RR Auction shall apply the payment received to such lot or lots that RR Auction, in its sole discretion, deems appropriate. If RR Auction does not exercise such discretion, the lots to which the payment shall be applied will be in descending order from the highest purchase price to the lowest. Any Bidder failing to comply with these Conditions of Sale shall be deemed to have granted RR Auction a security interest in, and RR Auction may retain as collateral such security for such Bidder’s obligations to RR Auction, any Bidder’s property in RR Auction’s possession or to which title has not yet passed to Bidder. RR Auction shall have the benefit of all rights of a secured party under the Uniform Commercial Code (U.C.C.) as adopted by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Section 13 Warranties

13.1 RR Auction does not provide any warranties to Bidders, whether expressed or implied, beyond those expressly provided in these Conditions of Sale. All property and lots are sold ”as is” and “where is”. By way of illustration rather than limitation, neither RR Auction nor the Consignor makes any representation or warranty, expressed or implied, as to merchantability or fitness for intended use, condition of the property (including any condition report), correctness of description, origin, measurement, quality, rarity, importance, exhibition, relevance, attribution, source, provenance, date, authorship, condition, culture, genuineness, value, or period of the property. Additionally, neither RR Auction nor the Consignor makes any representation or warranty, expressed or implied, as to whether the Bidder acquires rights in copyright, trademark, or other intellectual property (including exhibition or reproduction rights) related to the item, or whether the property is subject to any limitations or other rights. RR Auction does not make any representation or warranty as to title. 13.2 All descriptions, photographs, illustrations, and terminology including but not limited to words describing condition (including any condition reports requested by Bidder, see also Terminology), authorship, period, culture, source, origin, measurement, quality, rarity, provenance, importance, exhibition, and relevance, used in the Catalog, bill of sale, invoice, or anywhere else, represent a good faith effort made by RR Auction to fairly represent the lots and property offered for sale as to origin, date, condition, and other information contained therein; they are statements of opinion only. They are not representations or warranties and Bidder agrees and acknowledges that he or she shall not rely on them in determining whether or not to bid or for what price. Price estimates (which are determined well in advance of the Auction and are therefore subject to revision) and condition reports are provided solely as a convenience to Bidders and are not intended nor shall they be relied on by Bidders as statements, representations or warranties of actual value or predictions of final bid prices. 13.3 Bidders are accorded the opportunity to inspect the lots and to otherwise satisfy themselves as to the nature and sufficiency of each lot prior to bidding, and RR Auction urges Bidders to avail themselves accordingly. 13.4 All lots sold by RR Auction are accompanied by an Auction Certificate (“AC”). On any lot presented with an AC issued by RR Auction, the certification is only as to its attribution to the person or entity described or to the lot’s usage and only as explicitly stated therein (the “AC”), to the exclusion of any other warranties, express or implied, including but not limited to those pursuant to the Uniform Commercial Code. The AC inures only to the original Bidder (as shown in RR Auction’s records). Bidder may not transfer, assign, or otherwise convey the AC and such purported transfer, assignment, or conveyance shall be null and void. Section 14 Firearms RR Auction complies with all Federal and State rules and regulations relating to the purchasing, registration and shipping of firearms. A Bidder is required to provide appropriate documents and the payment of associated fees, if any. Bidder is responsible for providing a shipping address that is suitable for the receipt of a firearm. Section 15 Unauthorized Statements Under no circumstances is any employee, agent or representative of RR Auction authorized by RR Auction to modify, amend, waive or contradict any of these Conditions of Sale, any term or condition set forth on a registration form, any warranty or limitation or exclusion of warranty, any term or condition in either the Registration Form or these Terms and Conditions regarding payment requirements, including but not limited to due date, manner of payment, and what constitutes payment in full, or any other term or condition contained in any documents issued by RR Auction unless such modification, amendment, waiver or contradiction is contained in a writing signed by all parties. Any statements, oral or written, made by employees, agents or representatives of RR Auction to Bidder, including statements regarding specific lots, even if such employee, agent or representative represents that such statement is authorized, unless reduced to a writing signed Bidder and by an authorized officer of RR Auction by all parties, are statements of personal opinion only and are not binding on RR Auction, and under no circumstances shall be relied upon by Bidder as a statement, representation or warranty of RR Auction. Section 16 Bidder’s Remedies 16.1 Except as stated expressly herein, Bidder’s sole and exclusive remedy related to or pertaining to items it bids upon, views, or purchases from RR Auction, and any claims by Bidder related to authenticity, ownership, condition, title or value, shall be against Consignor only. 16.2 This section sets forth the sole and exclusive remedies of Bidder as against


RR Auction (inclusive of its affiliates, officers, managers, employees or agents), or in any way arising out of, related to, or in connection with these Conditions of Sale, , and is expressly in lieu of any other rights or remedies which might be available to Bidder by law. Time is of the essence with respect to these procedures. 16.3 Title to Items The Bidder hereby accepts the benefit of the Consignor’s warranty of title and any other representations and warranties made by the Consignor for the Bidder’s benefit. In the event that Bidder demonstrates in writing, satisfactory to the sole discretion of RR Auction, that there was a breach of the Consignor’s warranty of title concerning a lot purchased by Bidder, RR Auction may make demand upon the Consignor to pay to Bidder the Purchase Price (including any premiums, taxes, or other amounts paid or due to RR Auction). Should the Consignor not pay the Purchase Price to Bidder within thirty days after such demand (if any made), RR Auction may disclose the identity of the Consignor to Bidder and may assign to Bidder all or some of RR Auction’s rights against the Consignor with respect to such lot or property. Upon such disclosure and/or assignment, all responsibility and liability of RR Auction, if any, with respect to said lot or item shall automatically terminate related to or arising from these Conditions of Sale or such transaction operating as a complete waiver and general release by Bidder as to RR Auction and its agents, contractors, and affiliates, as to any and all claims concerning or related to the item, if any . RR Auction shall be entitled to retain the premiums and other amounts paid to RR Auction by Consignor only. The rights and remedies provided herein are for the original Bidder only and they may not be assigned or relied upon by any transferee or assignee under any circumstances. 16.4 Authenticity Challenge Process (1) If Bidder wishes to dispute or challenge the Authenticity of the lot or item (including asserting that it is incorrect), Bidder must adhere to the following procedure: Within 30 days of the Auction Date, Bidder must present written evidence to RR Auction, that the lot is not authentic as determined by a known expert in the field (and one recognized by RR Auction within its discretion) and send the physical item or lot at issue to RR Auction along with all evidence relied upon by Bidder for contesting the Authenticity. (“Authenticity Challenge Process”) “Authenticity” shall mean a gross discrepancy in the between the description, genuiness, or attribution of the item as represented by RR Auction in the Catalog or at the auction, and the item. If RR Auction concurs that the lot is not Authentic as was represented (it is sole discretion), Bidder’s sole and exclusive remedy as against RR Auction (inclusive of its affiliates, agents, employees, and contractors) shall be a refund of the purchase price of the subject item paid by Bidder, with no other costs, liabilities or amounts recoverable by Bidder. If RR Auction does not agree with the assertion by Bidder, then the Parties shall follow the dispute resolution procedures of these Conditions of Sale. Strict adherence to the Authenticity Challenge Process is a condition of standing for Bidder to initiate suit or claim. (2) So long as Bidder has complied with the Authenticity Challenge Process, any claim, suit or action, by Bidder concerning an AC or Certification of Authenticity, or related to the authenticity of the item must, without any exception, be brought within one (1) year of Auction Date and is subject to the other limitations and conditions stated in the Conditions of Sale. 16.5 Other Issues. Any dispute or claim by Bidder against RR Auction (or its affiliates, directors, employees, officers, agents, or contractors)) other than Authenticity, concerning any item or lot bid upon, or purchased, including value, title, condition, bidding process, or description must be asserted (if at all) in the following manner: (1) If the description of any lot in the Catalog is materially or grossly incorrect (e.g., gross cataloging error), or there is any other gross material issue pertaining to the item or lot, the item or lot may be returned if returned within five (5) calendar days of receipt, and received by RR Auction no later than twenty-one (21) calendar days after the Auction Date with explanation in writing.. If there is any discrepancy between the description in the Catalog and a certificate of auction, then the description in the certificate of auction (“Lot Challenge Process”). This paragraph shall constitute Bidder’s sole right with respect to the return of items, and no refunds shall be given for any items not returned to and received by RR Auction within the period of time stated herein or not materially or grossly in deviation from the description. Such a refund is subject to RR Auction’s sole discretionary review, and any request for refund must be made concurrently with returning the physical item or lot to RR Auction. Any item not returned within said frame will constitute acceptance of the item and a waiver and release of any and all claims by Bidder pertaining to the item other than with respect to authenticity; and (2) Provided that the Bidder has engaged in the Lot Challenge Process, any

claim concerning such must be brought no later than one (1) year of the Auction Date for the item or lot at issue and is subject to the other limitations and conditions stated in the Conditions of Sale. NO RETURN OR REFUND OF ANY AUCTION LOT WILL BE CONSIDERED OR PROVIDED EXCEPT AS PROVIDED IN THESE CONDITIONS OF SALE AND BIDDERS OR AS MAY BE REQUIRED BY LAW. FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH SUCH SHALL BE A COMPLETE DEFENSE TO ANY CLAIMS BY BIDDER RELATED TO THE CONDITIONS OF SALE, ANY AUCTION OR BID. 16.6 LIMITATION OF LIABILITY. For any and all claims by Bidder arising out of or related to this Agreement, Bidder’s viewing, bid, or purchase of items, or any agreement between the Parties, or otherwise, Bidder agrees that to the fullest extent such can be limited under the law, Bidder shall have no right to recover and hereby waives any and all rights to recover from against RR Auction or its affiliates, directors, employees, officers, agents, or contractors, consequential or indirect damages, lost profits damages, punitive, exemplary, statutory (or multiplier damages), physical or emotional distress damages, general or special damages of any kind (beyond amounts actually paid by Bidder for item(s) at issue), and in the event of recovery of any damages whatsoever, such shall be limited by the amounts actually paid by Bidder to RR Auction for the item(s) at issue in such claim, or if no money was paid to RR Auction by Bidder for items at issue, or there items are at issue, the amount of $150.00. Section 17 RR Auction’s Additional Services For Bidders who do not remove purchased property from RR Auction’s premises, RR Auction, in its sole discretion and solely as a service and accommodation to Bidders, may arrange to have purchased lots packed, insured and forwarded at the sole request, expense, and risk of Bidder. RR Auction assumes no and disclaims all responsibility and liability for acts or omissions in such packing or shipping by RR Auction or other packers and carriers, whether or not recommended by RR Auction. RR Auction assumes no and disclaims all responsibility and liability for damage to frames, glass or other breakable items. Where RR Auction arranges and bills for such services via invoice, RR Auction will include an administration charge. Section 18 Headings Headings are for convenience only and shall not be used to interpret the substantive sections to which they refer. Section 19 Entire Agreement Except to the extent Bidder is also a consignor (in which case the terms of the consignment agreement shall also govern), these Conditions of Sale constitute the entire agreement between the Parties together with the terms and conditions contained in the auction Registration Form. They may not be amended, modified or superseded except in a signed writing executed by all parties. No oral or written statement by anyone employed by RR Auction or acting as agent or representative of RR Auction may amend, modify, waive or supersede the terms herein unless such amendment, waiver or modification is contained in a writing signed by all parties. If any section of these Conditions of Sale or any term or provision of any section is held to be invalid, void, or unenforceable by any court or arbitrator of competent jurisdiction, the remaining parts of the agreement and remainder of the sections or terms and provisions of the section and all sections shall continue in full force and effect without being impaired or invalidated in any way. Section 20 Governing Law and Enforcement 20.1 The Parties agree that all agreements between the Parties including but not limited to these Conditions of Sale are entered into in Boston, Massachusetts, no matter where Bidder is situated and no matter by what means or where Bidder was informed of the Auction and regardless of whether catalogs, materials, or other communications were received by Bidder in another location. 20.2 The Parties agree that these Conditions of Sale, any other related agreement(s), along with all claims between the Parties, including those arising out of or related to such are governed by the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, without regard for its conflict of laws principles.

Bidder agrees to the Conditions of Sale and upon each instance that Bidder participates in any auction, bids, or otherwise agrees to such terms and reaffirms this release as of the date of so participating or agreeing unless Bidder otherwise provides clear written notice to RR Auction prior to so bidding. 20.6 The Bidder hereby agrees that RR Auction shall be entitled to present these Conditions of Sale to a court in any jurisdiction other than set forth in this paragraph as conclusive evidence of the Parties agreement, and the Parties further agree that the court shall immediately dismiss any action filed in such jurisdiction. 20.7 Liquidated Damages for Specific Breaches In the event that Bidder provides false information in connection with registering for bidding, fails to correct or update information or breaches the Conditions of Sale by failing to pay the purchase price when due after becoming the winning bidder, as liquidated damages associated with such breaches, R&R may obtain from Bidder the greater of (1) 150% the reserve of the item (if any); (2) the amount bidder bid; or (3), the full amount that bidder would have otherwise paid. Bidder will also be liable for an additional 20% of such amount to account for additional administrative costs, shipping, additional advertising, and other damages and liabilities fees that are difficult to calculate on an item-by-item basis. 20.8 Indemnity. Bidder agrees to defend, indemnify, hold harmless RR Auction

Section 21: State-by-State Law Issues This Auction is being conducted in and the sale shall take place in the State of Massachusetts. Notwithstanding, the foregoing, should these terms and conditions violate the law of any State should that state’s law be found to govern, or any provision herein determined to be invalid, the clause itself and the remainder of the Agreement shall be valid to the fullest extent allowed. Also, to the extent other states law apply to any transaction arising out of the Agreement (without admitting such), RR Auction states:

SALE OF AUTOGRAPHED COLLECTIBLES: AS REQUIRED BY LAW, A DEALER WHO SELLS TO A CONSUMER ANY COLLECTIBLE DESCRIBED AS BEING AUTOGRAPHED MUST PROVIDE A WRITTEN EXPRESS WARRANTY AT THE TIME OF SALE. THIS DEALER MAY BE SURETY BONDED OR OTHERWISE INSURED TO ENSURE THE AUTHENTICITY OF ANY AUTOGRAPHED COLLECTIBLE SOLD BY THIS DEALER.

Section 22 Glossary of Condition terms Information provided to prospective Bidders with respect of any lot, including any pre-sale estimate, whether written or oral, and information in any catalogue, condition or other report, commentary or valuation, is not a representation of fact but rather a statement of opinion held by RR Auction. Use of the following terms constitutes an opinion as follows: VERY FINE describes an item believed to be in virtually flawless condition, and is used sparingly for items of exceptionally attractive appearance. FINE is the most common statement of condition, and applies to most items that we offer. It describes items that we believe to show expected handling wear, generally acceptable random flaws (such as light creases, small bends, etc.), and an overall appearance that is pleasing to the majority of collectors. VERY GOOD describes an item that we believe exhibits more moderate flaws (such as toning, light staining, professional reinforcements or repairs, etc.). Most collectors would be comfortable with items in very good condition, and this would be the expected condition for many formats (early presidential documents, for example). GOOD describes an item which we believe to have obvious visible flaws, including heavy wear, missing portions, or repairs that affect appearance; generally items in this condition are offered only if an item is otherwise believed to be exceedingly rare or important. Bidder may call and request further details and information about RR Auction’s opinions concerning any item via phone or email which shall provided in RR Auction’s discretion. Certificate of Auction, Certificate of Authenticity and Goods Acquired: Bidder warrants that Bidder (and its agents, assigns, successors, and affiliates) shall not purposely deface, destroy, dismember, cut-up into parts the item or Lot purchased at auction from RR Auction and in the event such shall occur whether purposefully or accidently, Bidder (and its agents, assigns, successors, and affiliates) shall refrain from advertising, promoting, or marketing the item as having been purchased from RR Auction and shall in no event display, expressly claim, or imply that the item was certified or auctioned in such state by RR Auction. As liquidated damages for such breach, Bidder agrees to be liable to RR Auction for the greater of the amount of three (3) times the hammer price of the item along with all other fees and costs as otherwise provided in this Terms of Sale.
