New York, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $1,500 - $3,000

Description: [DISCOVERY VOYAGE.] A sterling silver salver signed in facsimile by eight participants of the British National Antarctic Expedition, 1901-1904, more commonly known as the Discovery Voyage. N.p., October 5, 1918. Presented as a wedding gift to Royal Navy officer CHARLES ROYDS (1876-1931), the Discovery's first lieutenant after whom Cape Royds in Antarctica is named. Our sterling silver salver with scalloped rope edge and four ball and claw feet is inscribed with the seal of the Discovery Voyage depicting icebergs and a penguin encircled within a heraldic belt. Below the seal is the engraved inscription "To Captain C.W. Royds R.N. on his marriage October 5th 1918 from his old messmates in the 'Discovery' 1901-1904." Surrounding the inscription are the engraved signatures of: MICHAEL BARNE (1877-1961; "Michael Barne"). Barne's responsibilities as a member of Scott's Discovery expedition was to keep records of the voyage. A recipient of the Polar Medal, Barne "had been a shipmate of Scott on the Majestic... [and] was appointed second officer by the committee in June 1900. His duties including assisting Armitage with magnetic studies and taking charge of deep-sea temperature research," (Pilgrims on the Ice: Robert Falcon Scott's first Antarctic Expedition, Baughman). An Antarctic cape, glacier and inlet are named after him. GEORGE FRANCIS ARTHUR MULOCK (1882-1963; "George F.A. Mulock"). Mulock had joined the relief vessel Morning that resupplied Scott's ships in the Antarctic. In 1902, he came aboard the Discovery to replace Ernest Shackleton who had fallen ill. Mulock served as a surveyor and cartographer during the mission, publishing his results as Survey Work of the National Antarctic, 1901-04, for which he was awarded the Polar Medal. He had a distinguished career in both World War I and II, during which time he was held captive by the Japanese. The Mulock Inlet and Glacier are named in his honor. Marine biologist THOMAS VERE HODGSON (1864-1926; "T.V. Hodgson") did pioneering work aboard the Discovery and was the first person to describe the Antarctic's deep sea floor. Prior to joining the Discovery, he had been a member of Carsten Borchgrevink's Southern Cross expedition (1898-1901). Cape Hodgson in the Ross Archipelago is named after him. LOUIS BERNACCHI (1876-1942; "L. C. Bernacchi") was a Tasmanian physicist and astronomer of Italian extraction. His first polar journey was with Carsten Borchgrevink's Southern Cross expedition (1898-1901), along with Hodgson (above). For his work on the Discovery voyage, Bernacchi was decorated by the Royal Geographical Society and awarded the Légion d'Honneur. Scott was the best man at his wedding. Bernacchi explored regions of Africa and South America, wrote several books on the Antarctic, was a member of the Royal Geographic Society, and served in the British and United States military during World War I. His attempts to raise funds for a 1925 Antarctic expedition failed. Antarctica's Bernacchi Head and Bay honor his name. Royal Navy officer REGINALD W. SKELTON (1872-1956; "Reginald W. Skelton") was the Discovery's chief engineer and official photographer. Despite the longstanding friendship between Scott and Skelton, he was passed over as second-in-command on Scott's fatal 1910 Terra Nova expedition. An Antarctic inlet and three glaciers are named in his honor. CYRIL LONGHURST ("Cyril Longhurst") was the secretary of the Discovery expedition and served as best man at Shackleton's wedding. Mount Cyril in Antarctica is named after him. HARTLEY TRAVERS FERRAR (1879-1932; "H.T. Ferrar") was born in Ireland, raised in South Africa and educated as a geologist in England. A relatively young and inexperienced member of the voyage, Ferrar met the woman he would marry while the Discovery was docked in New Zealand. His expedition duties included making geological surveys, classifying what became known as the Ferrar or Beacon sandstone layer and discovering the first Antarctic fossils. He later conducted geological research in Egypt, Palestine and New Zealand. The Ferrar Glacier is named for him. Scottish Royal Navy captain ALBERT B. ARMITAGE (1864-1943; "Albert B. Armitage"), was the Discovery's second-in-command. "Armitage had been second in command of the Jackson-Harmsworth expedition to Spitsbergen. In recognition of this, he received the Murchison award from the R[oyal] G[eographical] S[ociety]. Armitage was the oldest man in the expedition, and his years of Arctic service gave him more such experience than anyone else on the Discovery except Koettlitz... The contrasts between Armitage and Scott were noteworthy. Armitage had a good deal of experience with ships under sail; Scott did not. Armitage had three years of polar work; Scott had none," (Scott of the Antarctic, Huxley). Cape Armitage, the southernmost point on Ross Island, is named in his honor. The Discovery voyage was the first led by Scott and was arranged by the Joint Antarctic Committee composed of members from the Royal Society and the Royal Geographical Society. Known as the British National Antarctic Expedition, its achievements included the discovery of the polar plateau and Scott's ascent, the first ever, in a hot air balloon over Antarctica. Scott returned to Antarctica a second time aboard the Terra Nova. That expedition, which commenced in 1910, developed into a race against the Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen to become the first to reach the South Pole. Amundsen attained the goal on January 4, 1912, beating Scott by two weeks. Scott's expedition ended tragically when he and four companions perished on their return march from the South Pole after failing to reach a supply depot. Following the Discovery expedition, Royds continued his career in the Royal Navy. While commanding the battleship HMS Emperor of India, he was given our lovely sterling silver platter to honor his marriage to Mary Louisa Blane, a widow and retired actress. After the war, Royds was an instructor at the Admiralty, retiring from the navy as a rear-admiral. Thereafter, he enjoyed a second career as deputy commissioner of the Metropolitan Police for which he received a knighthood. The back of the salver bears the hallmarks of "Goldsmiths & Silversmiths Company 112 Regent Street W" and is etched with the numbers 97079 and 24090. The company's hallmark "G&S. Co. Ltd." is engraved in a trefoil alongside a heraldic lion, the head of an animal and the letter "B." Goldsmiths & Silversmiths Company was a large firm comprised of jewelers and silversmiths established in 1880 by William Gibson and John Lawrence Langman. It started as Goldsmiths & Silversmiths Company in 1898 and became part of Garrard & Co., Ltd. in 1952. A unique object. Professionally polished and in fine condition save for a few very faint scuffs.

Ring Lardner rare typed letter signed by the American humorist

by Lion Heart Autographs

May 15, 2015, 12:00 PM EST

New York, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $800 - $1,000

Description: "I haven’t yet felt lyrical, but expect to shortly" - LARDNER, RING. (1885-1933). American journalist and author. TLS. (“Ring Lardner”). 2/3p. 4to. New York, “July something” [after 1929]. Written on the letterhead of New York’s Doctor’s Hospital. To Dr. Boland. ----- “I have been on what you might call a spree. Please tell the desolate nurses on the ninth floor that I will write as soon as I am allowed to. I should like to know whether you enjoyed St. Patrick’s night. And please tell Mons. Esperence that I haven’t yet felt lyrical, but expect to shortly.…” ----- Lardner’s success as a fiction writer commenced in 1914 with the publication of his “Jack Keefe” letters in the Saturday Evening Post. He continued to produce humorous sketches, hailed both for their mordant wit and conversational tone, the result of his many years as a reporter. Lardner’s characteristic use of the vernacular was admired by such respected critics as H.L. Mencken and William McFee, for whom it represented a “‘fundamentally American’” style, (quoted in DAB). Lardner was a close friend of F. Scott Fitzgerald, whose Abe North character in Tender is the Night was modeled on Lardner. Ernest Hemingway was also an admirer and penned articles for his high school newspaper under the name “Ring Lardner, Jr.” From 1919 to 1933, Lardner lived on Long Island. Around 1926, he contracted tuberculosis and spent much of the last seven years of his life hospitalized. Folded with some age toning. In very good condition and rare; we could find only two letters sold at auction in the last forty years.

Barnum & Bailey / Desperado's Leap. 1909

by Poster Auctions International, Inc

May 8, 2015, 12:00 PM EST

New York, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $2,500 - $3,000

Description: Artist: ANONYMOUS Size: 28 3/8 x 37 3/4 in./72.2 x 96 cm Strobridge Litho, Cincinnati "The 'Leap for Life' was performed by the German acrobat Ernest Gadbin. After being hoisted to his small platform high in the Big Top, [he] would raise his hands above his head and dive head-first, aiming for a 40-foot-long, 2 1/2-foot-wide wooden skid on which he slid, its upward curve throwing him into the air, through which he flew some distance before finally landing in a net" (Strobridge, p. 250). This type of act is often cited as being one of the most thrilling and nerve-wracking ever performed in a circus, especially as Gadbin was the only man to perform this stunt without any sort of armor or safety harness.

Hemingway, Ernest. Typed letter signed.

by Profiles in History

June 11, 2015, 11:00 AM PST

Calabasas, CA, USA

Estimated Price: $6,000 - $8,000

Description: 70. Hemingway, Ernest. Typed letter signed (“Papa”) in red pencil at the top of the second page, 2 pages (8.5 x 11 in.; 216 x 279 mm.), on “Finca Vigia, San Francisco De Paula, Cuba” letterhead, two separate sheets, 8 August 1948, written to screenwriter Peter Viertel. With additional notations written in pencil and red pencil on the borders of both sheets and on the verso of the second. Ernest Hemingway writes his friend and screenwriter Peter Viertel.“Man should do his work and love that the most; then his woman and his children, then his friends, then all the things he likes to do, then – none of this makes very good sense.”Hemingway writes, in part: ...You have to get out of the fnucking coast. You said good bye to it in the first book. Think Europe will be good for all of us. For a change anyway. I always get stink homesick for it and the last time was there we had lots of fun…but before that it was rugged and after that it was as bad as first war (not quite as bad but still bad). Am so happy in anticipation of seeing it now civilized and being able to see the pictures again and go into the old joints and have there be something to eat and to drink and find a good café where you don’t know anybody where you can read and write. Charley Sweeny and I always had out own cafes where we did not know anyone but the garcon. Then once a week or so he would meet me at my café and I would meet him at his. Then we would eat at wonderful places where we knew nobody. I think the main awfulness of NY which I dislike same as you the coast is the corruption of going places where everybody knows everybody. That is fine in Ketchum. But with a whole big city to be able to pick your spots in is different. We used to go to places where knew people when were lonesome. But a good man shouldn’t be lonesome all the time any more than he should be scared all the time. Man should do his work and love that the most; then his woman and his children, then his friends, then all the things he likes to do, then – none of this makes very good sense. It isn’t ordered that simply. Anyway will be wonderful to see you guys. I will be good and kind to John and if he wants me to work out something just on the Zelia Parla deal ever will be glad to do. Sylvester Broadway heel. But John knows I’m straight I think. That girl was married in our house. I have handled by request of both parties all sorts of things, financial and otherwise, between her and the man who is father of her child for some years now. Sylvester can not imagine anyone doing that sort of thing without getting at least ten percent. Her husband is one of my best friends in Cuba. Naturally I do not think it is just funny for Sylvester to libel her with complete irresponsibility and impunity. Also he made the mistake of sending me an advance copy of the book telling me who the principal character was. This gets up into evidence. He also went out to Winston Guest’s house on Gardner’s Island (where our boys and I have shot many times). Also if you have no religion, do not love your wife, do not give a shit and have a sound professional grounding it is not so difficult as if you had some religion, loved your wife and had never learned the trade. Anyway for me. It was not until read his book on Infantry Tactics that knew had fought Rummel [sic] in Italy. Also kicked shit out of same. He didn’t notice, like lots of krauts, that they did not get where they had to get and that everything else was cabbage. Must knock off now and get to work. Pete don’t let anything get to you. We have all been hit and will be hit again. We just shouldn’t have to stay in and you have to protect the very delicate and lovely mechanism you write with and still be a man and provide for your dependents. My god damned project was designed to try to do that. But I know it is a fine project because every time I think of it I light up the way I only light up when know am right…In the borders of both sheets and on the verso of the second, Hemingway has written the following notations: Gig and I worked good on trip. Also caught 6 big king 8 yellowtail, 7 wahoo, and shot 24 negro geese for the cats (four meals) Have good cow 1 Guernsey now called “Colsie’s Pride”. She saves 44.60 a month in milk. Gift of old friend. New when broke. Now has money I thought Marys [sic] idea was silly. But never tell anybody you love they are silly…Love to Jige. Please send back this introduction and only show it to Eddie Rolfe if you see him. Don’t want Wolfram publishing it…Latimer no good. Repeat no good.Early in 1949, after a relatively lean decade, Hemingway at last regained his stride as a novelist, and within a few short years had completed several novels, including, The Old Man and the Sea, for which he was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in 1953. Though Finca Vigia remained his permanent home, Hemingway continued to travel extensively, indulging in the outdoor pursuits so vividly described in these lines to Peter Viertel, who wrote the screenplays for his novels The Old Man and the Sea and The Sun Also Rises. On this occasion, he was accompanied buy his son “Gigi” (Gregory), like his father, an avid marksman. Hemingway’s fourth wife, journalist Mary Welsh, whom he had married in 1946, was working in London for Time-Life when they first met in late spring 1944. In Constantinople, in 1922, Hemingway met Colonel Charles Sweeny, a soldier of fortune who was said to have fought in seven wars with the armies of five countries. Sylvester is probably the novelist and short story writer Harry Sylvester, whom Hemingway had known since the 1930s. $6,000 - $8,000

Ernest Shackleton elegant signed photo of the dashing Arctic explorer

by Lion Heart Autographs

May 15, 2015, 12:00 PM EST

New York, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $5,000 - $6,000

Description: SHACKLETON, SIR ERNEST. (1874-1922). British Antarctic explorer who came within 97 nautical miles of reaching the South Pole on his 1907-1909 expedition. SP. (“Ernest H. Shackleton”). 1p. Small 4to. N.p., November 1909. The signed sepia frontispiece portrait of Shackleton taken from his published account of the Nimrod expedition, The Heart of the Antarctic, Being the Story of the British Antarctic Expedition 1907-1909. Our image represents an elegantly attired Shackleton wearing a suit, waistcoat, silk tie, and high collar. Signed and dated beneath the image. Shackleton’s distinguished exploration career began as a third officer under the guidance of Robert F. Scott, in whose Discovery expedition (1901-1904) he took part until poor health forced Scott to send Shackleton home in 1903. In 1906, Shackleton began planning his own expedition, seeking sponsors and buying supplies and equipment not the least of which was the aging sealing vessel Nimrod. “Shackleton then turned his mind to the men who would accompany him. Four hundred had applied. As he sifted the letters Shackleton pondered his requirements. The men must not only be fit, disciplined and well qualified: they would need the ‘marked individuality’ common to explorers of the unknown – and they would also have to live together in a cramped hut, completely isolated from the world. Finding a team would not be easy. In the end only two of the shore party of fifteen had previous polar experience,” (Antarctica: Great Stories from the Frozen Continent, Allen et. al.). In the summer of 1907, Shackleton and his crew set off for Antarctica. Among the Nimrod expedition’s accomplishments was the successful ascent of Mount Erebus, a Ross Island volcano. This achievement was followed by the discovery of the approximate location of the south magnetic pole. Although Shackleton’s party broke the record for traveling to the southernmost latitude in the world, they were unable to reach the Pole, turning back a mere 97 nautical miles short of their goal. Nonetheless, he and his men returned home safely to a well-deserved hero’s welcome. Elegantly matted and framed. In excellent condition.

Description: "Polar Man" Writes A Love Letter Eight Days Before the Nimrod Sails for Antarctica: "This will be the last I can write till I do so from the ice" - SHACKLETON, SIR ERNEST. (1874-1922). British Antarctic explorer who came within 97 nautical miles of attaining the South Pole on his 1907-1909 expedition. ALS. (“Your Polar Man”). 3½pp. 4to. [New Zealand], December, 23, 1907. Written on four sheets of British Antarctic Expedition 1907 stationery to Australian actress Isobel “Belle” Donaldson. ----- “This on the eve of Christmas is the first chance I have really had of writing to you not but that many times I have sat down with the intention and desire to do so but always something came in the way or I could not write what I wanted to say for words written are poor things to convey one’s inmost thoughts and after our long talks and the time in Sydney they are doubly feeble and inadequate. There is so much that I want to say to you yet I cannot. If you only knew how glad I was to hear that things went well last night or rather Saturday night. You would have wired me even a longer one for I was thinking and wondering all the time how you were getting on. I was living all through the piece and yet that is only a small bit of your life. There is so much for you to see and do and go through that at times I feel anxious as to how you will do it and yet keep fresh and young. All these things concerning you are far more in my thoughts than you can ever think but I do so want to see you get on and all things go well with you. Life and all that goes to make up life is so very complex and so hard to understand that I am often inclined to let it all slide but the interest in [?] is too great. I am always thinking about you yet I cannot sit down and write when there are these hundreds of miserable business letters coming in. I am so glad you liked the flowers and I feel that you may think I had plenty of chance to write when really and truly I have not. I shall always always remember our days on the India and those days in Sydney and thus are only an earnest [sic] of the days that are to come in the future. It is impossible for me to explain in writing really what I mean and though this letter seems stilted and short I want you to realize that my thoughts are with you and that your success in life in all ways will be one of my most earnest wishes. In thought and companionship we came very near each other and this will always be in our lives. I was so glad to get your photo this morning. It is very good but I miss the blue of the eyes and that infinite changing charm that makes you what you are. This will be the last I can write till I do so from the ice. Will you remember me to Elsie Edwards and I am sending along the … now. Remember me to all and tell … I got his letter but am so rushed that I cannot answer. Tell him I will not forget him if I go North. Remember me also to Mr. Thornton. Now girl I shall always think of you & pray if my prayers are of use. I do wish I could see you now. May the New Year be good to you. Your “Polar Man” ----- Shackleton began his distinguished exploration career under the guidance of Robert F. Scott, in whose Discovery expedition he took part. In 1906, Shackleton began planning his own expedition, seeking sponsors for the British Antarctic Expedition and buying supplies, equipment and the aging sealing vessel Nimrod. After much preparation, the Nimrod set sail on August 7, 1907, while Shackleton, stayed behind and “turned his mind to the men who would accompany him. Four hundred had applied. As he sifted the letters Shackleton pondered his requirements. The men must not only be fit, disciplined and well qualified: they would need the ‘marked individuality’ common to explorers of the unknown – and they would also have to live together in a cramped hut, completely isolated from the world. Finding a team would not be easy. In the end only two of the shore party of fifteen had previous polar experience,” (Antarctica: Great Stories from the Frozen Continent, Allen et al.). Of his crew three were Australian, two New Zealanders and one from Tasmania. “Shackleton finally left [England], on the last day of October… He travelled by the overland route; across the Channel, by special train from Calais to Marseilles, there to catch the waiting P & O liner - in his case RMS India - through Suez,” (Shackleton, Huntford). It was on board the India, and notwithstanding his marriage to Emily Dorman since 1904, that Shackleton “fell passionately in love with a girl called Isobel Donaldson. It was more than just a shipboard romance… [during the expedition Shackleton named] a mountain after her. To this day, Mount Donaldson, overlooking Beardmore Glacier remains a memento of the affair,” (ibid.). Shackleton’s connection to Donaldson continued after the expedition safely returned from having nearly reached the South Pole, and in 1910, he inscribed to her a copy of The Aurora Australis, the first book written, printed and bound in the Antarctic. Only 45 of the approximately 100 copies are known survive. Donaldson’s copy was sold by Sotheby’s in 1970 and now belongs to an Irish collector. Recent scholarship suggests that he may have had at least one other affair during his marriage. On a voyage from South Africa to England in 1903, he met and became attached to Hope Paterson, but kept his feelings from Emily. In 1908, while leading the British Antarctic Expedition, he named a dome-shaped hill at the foot of the Beardmore Glacier Mount Hope in her honor. The explorer later sent a piece of rock from Mount Hope’s summit to Paterson (sold by Bloomsbury in 2011). Our letter was written just eight days before the Nimrod sailed for Antarctica on January 1, 1908. In addition to discovering the approximate location of the south magnetic pole, Shackleton’s party broke the record for coming closest to the southernmost tip of the world, a record that held until Amundsen attained the pole on December 14, 1911. Accompanied by the original, hand addressed envelope bearing a canceled New Zealand stamp and fragment of a red wax seal. Letters from this period and on this stationery are uncommon; a love letter is exceptionally rare, possibly unique.

Roosevelt writes to Secretary of Labor Frances Perkins concerning the re-origination of the fledgling National Labor Relations Board as the President prepared to make the board independent of the National Recovery Administration.Roosevelt writes in full: I suggest after talking with Sen. Wagner or others that we ask Clay Williams & Frank Walsh to act as Vice-Chairmen of Nat. Labor B[oar]d— When a Vice Chairman sits on a new case it is my thought he should carry it through to final decision & that Bob & the 2 V.C.’s should consult frequently as to the general policy.

Minor ink transfer below date.Ernest Rutherford – the father of nuclear physics.Rutherford writes in full: Dear Mr. Spicer, I thank you for your kindness in sending me copies of some of the films which are excellent. I must take this opportunity of thanking you for the very pleasant and interesting day you gave us at Sawston. Yours sincerely, RutherfordIn his early work, New Zealand-born British physicist Ernest Rutherford discovered the concept of radioactive half-life, proved that radioactivity involved the transmutation of one chemical element to another, and also differentiated and named alpha and beta radiation. This work, done at McGill University in Canada, is the basis for the Nobel Prize in Chemistry he was awarded in 1908. Interestingly, Rutherford performed his most famous work after he became a Nobel laureate. In 1911 he theorized that atoms have their charge concentrated in a very small nucleus, and thereby pioneered the Rutherford model of the atom. He is widely credited with being the first to “split the atom” in 1917 in a nuclear reaction between nitrogen and alpha particles, in which he also discovered (and named) the proton. In 1919 Rutherford became the Director of the Cavendish Laboratory at Cambridge University. Under his leadership, the neutron was discovered by James Chadwick in 1932. In the same year, the first experiment to split the nucleus in a fully controlled manner was performed by students working under his direction (John Cockcroft and Ernest Walton). $800 - $1,200
