“It is difficult for me; but I must accept the inevitable, rational conclusion that our system of justice does not always guarantee a fair result. In my case, the malicious leaks to the media, the blatant enticements of immunity for those inextricably caught, the political expedience which led the Congress to refuse me an objective hearing, all prohibited the traditional safeguard of a presumption of innocence. Perhaps someday I will be in a position to explain more fully the unusual confluence of events which caused me to take the course I did.” $300-500 1002 Alcott, Louisa May (1832-1888) Autograph Note on Verso of Original Frank T.

Dodge of Spencer, Massachusetts, regarding Edison’s phonograph business and inventions, including letters by Edison containing a thorough explanation of the inventor’s thoughts on the state of the market and his competitors; written at a time when Edison’s phonograph business was beginning to founder; he ceased manufacture in 1929: “The Victor people have not made a success of the great artists. For ten years they have poured out millions in advertising. To-day they have learned that the great artist records never had a good sale. dealers have in their hands more than ten million dollars worth of red seal records. [...] The bonehead dealers have been buying these records for years on standing order and as not one dealer in 100 ever took an inventory to ascertain the sales value of the various records he never changed his standing orders; but owing to the big depression and the failure of so many phonograph companies and the cut in prices, with a tremendous fall in sales, has caused the dealer to investigate.” In the 14 January 1925 letter: “The trouble with electric motors is that the dealers cannot make any money by reason of the service which they are compelled to give on account of the impossibility of teaching owners how to remedy any troubles that might arise. We put out over 1,000 electric winding motors in the early days, but had to take them back. The little motors which were attached to the disc machines to drive the turntables, so that the owner would not have to use the crank were a disaster to every dealer, and in most cases the jobbers had to take them back. The trouble with an electric motor is that the commutator gets dirty and sparks.” A group of letters with interesting content fresh to the market from a family collection; each in good condition, slightly dusty, old folds, three of the Edison letters typed over a single page, one is written over two pages, should be read for content; with an additional letter discussing the loan of the letters in the 1940s, addressed to the original correspondent. $40,000-60,000

Philadelphia: Benjamin Franklin, 1754. Folio-format joined bifolium, laid paper, printed over four pages (without advertising), featuring the first use of Franklin’s political cartoon inspired by the inability of the thirteen colonies to unite against the French during the French and Indian War, accompanied by an editorial written by Franklin; rare, this copy was sold at auction in 2012, no other copies appear in the auction record; professional restoration to the head of the snake, some toning, trimmed tightly at the head, with slight loss, 15 x 9 3/4 in. N.B. Franklin’s editorial was inspired by a letter received from Major George Washington regarding the French capture of Pennsylvania frontier Fort Prince George, at the confluence of the Allegheny and Monongahela Rivers in Allegheny County. Ensign Edward Ward was left without command and forced to surrender the fort on April 18, 1754. Taking this news as a starting point, Franklin then lays out the formidable nature of the French invasion. “The confidence of the French in this undertaking seems well-grounded on the present disunited state of the British Colonies, and the extreme difficulty of bringing so many different governments and assemblies to agree in any speedy and effectual measures for our common defence and security; while our enemies have the very great advantage of being under one direction, with one council, and one purse.” Franklin’s commentary and cartoon presage the as-yet uncontemplated revolution to come. Join, or Die is the first graphic conception of separate colonies compelled to unite as a group. When the British imposed the Stamp Act in the 1760s, Franklin’s image persisted as a sturdy representation of colonial unity. The enduring theme of state unity served the country during the American Revolution and more than one hundred years later during the Civil War. $50,000-70,000

[...] I did not in any way, shape, or form intend to appoint you my official biographer, or give that dubious distinction to anyone. Please understand! The idea of contacting my friends, family, and whomever may give you information is tantamount to your working on my biography as of now, and I earnestly request you to refrain therefrom. [...] I must insist that you lay off for at least several years to come. I’m not quite dead yet!”; in the fourth and longest letter, Lee patches things up, and apologizes for alarming the would-be biographer, Lee encourages her to continue writing “As for quitting altogether, DON’T BE SILLY”; she explains that her agent, Julie Fallowfield, sometimes comes across as “frosty” in her efforts to protect Lee; this letter also contains an interesting note on Gerald Clarke’s biography of Truman Capote, Lee notes that when reading it, “you will find among its amazing inaccuracies a particularly malicious lie to the effect that my mother was mentally unbalanced and had tried twice to kill me! (A glittering example of Truman’s cruelty and jealousy--all my gentle mother ever did was love him.)”; with a four-line post script note in Lee’s hand; sizes of the letters vary, should be viewed for content. $2,000-3,000

At the same time I will ask that the matter be so investigated that it shall not reach the newspapers, unless the decision should be favorable, as an adverse decision will put me in position not very pleasant.

At the outbreak of hostilities, Dix sent a telegram to his Treasury agents in New Orleans with the following order: “If any one attempts to haul down the American flag, shoot him on the spot.” Although the message was intercepted by Confederate soldiers and never reached its intended audience, the slogan did find its way onto many proUnion tokens and other propaganda during the war. $15,000-25,000

I have written the ‘one more book’ you want to finish the story. It will be published this month and its title is, These Happy Golden Years. I hope you get a copy for Christmas and that you like it as well as the others. Sourdough was really a substitute for sour milk and was used in cooking just as sour milk was. We had no baking powder in those days and used soda with sour milk for sour dough. To start it, mother mixed warm water and flour a pinch of salt and a little sugar making it about as thick as gravey. This was kept in a warm place until it soured. It was then used as sour milk to make the biscuit but a little of it was left to help start the next batch souring. Enough more water and flour, sugar and salt were added to make enough for use again. We used it only when had no milk, which of course is better. With love, Sincerely yours, Laura Ingalls Wilder.” “My Dear Mrs. Phraner, Your curiosity is justified but your guess is wrong. Rose Wilder Lane is my daughter. Our only child. She wrote Let the Hurricane Roar before I had planned the Little House series. While her descriptions of storms and grasshoppers are true to facts her story is fiction. She had of course learned of those things from us. Her use of the family names and characters come naturally. My series of stories as you know are literally true, names, dates, places, every anecdote and much of the conversations are historically and actually true. When you read anything written by Rose Wilder Lane, just think of her as my little girl grown up. Have you seen her latest book, The History of Freedom? It was published in January. I am glad you like my Golden Years. Sister Carrie writes one that after she read the book it seemed that she was back in those times again and all that had happened since was a dream. I considered it a great tribute to the truth of the picture I had drawn. I hope you will read some of Rose’s books. She is a better writer than I am though our style of writing is very similar. Please give my love to Mary. With kindest regards, Sincerely yours, Laura Ingalls Wilder.” $600-800

N.B. “The most immediate impact of de Damhouder’s works was on the witch trials of the time, in which the Praxis Rerum Criminalium and its translations were cited regularly as fundamental works. The Praxis dedicated a lengthy sixty-four paragraphs to witchcraft, copied in large part from Paulus Grillandus’s Tractatus de Sortilegiis. According to the Praxis, witchcraft was a heinous crime that went unpunished too often because of the ignorance of magistrates, and which also covered love charms, fortune-telling, astrology and other superstitious practices. De Damhouder expanded on this by providing detailed practical advice (backed up by examples from his own court practice) on how to conduct interrogations of suspected witches under torture. These included, for example, the recommendation to shave off all hair and to inspect all orifices of the suspect, in order to uncover hidden magical amulets that would make the wearer withstand torture. He asserted that a single indication of guilt was sufficient for torture to be applied to achieve a confession, though he did recognize that too much torture can produce false confessions.” (Wikipedia) $600-800

N.B. Arthur O. Norton wrote an article entitled Harvard Text-Books and Reference Books of the Seventeenth Century, for the Colonial Society of Massachusetts, April, 1933 (a copy of this publication is included with the lot). In the article Norton describes his efforts to resurrect the Harvard College curriculum in its earliest incarnation. He records other Harvard text-books signed by Russell, Willard, and Graves, and other members of the Williams family. The Williams children were abducted by Native American Indians during the raid on Deerfield, Massachusetts in 1704, were later returned, and several attended Harvard College. Proficient reading of ancient Biblical languages was a requirement at the time and Norton lists two other copies of this same 1653 London edition of the Greek Septuagint held at the Harvard College Library and American Antiquarian Society. Perhaps the most distinguished 17th century colonial divine to leave his name in this book is Samuel Willard, author of A Compleat Body of Divinity and Harvard College President from 1701 until his death in 1707. The book itself is the first British imprint of the Septuagint, the earliest translation of the Hebrew Old Testament into Greek; the text was edited by the Unitarian controversialist John Biddle (1615-1662); the Scholia section is present. $1,000-2,000
