FABULOUS ARCHIVE OF COL. EDWARD ANDERSON

Lot 1374: FABULOUS ARCHIVE OF COL. EDWARD ANDERSON "THE INFAMOUS FIGHTING PREACHER" WHO PERSONALLY EXECUTED NUMEROUS SUSPECTED CONFEDERATE SPIES, GUERRILLAS, BUSHWACKERS AND DISLOYAL SOUTHERN CITIZENS.

by James D. Julia

March 15, 2015, 10:00 AM EST

Fairfield, ME, USA

Estimated Price: $12,500 - $22,500

Description: SN 20147. Col. Edward Anderson archive includes presentation Smith & Wesson #2 Army revolver, Cavalry Officers Saber, two gold medals and much more. There is a vast archive of research and orig information accompanying this lot including Norm Flayderman's research which starts in 1957. This collection was one of Norm's favorite groupings which he hoped to write an article on one day. After glancing through a few of the documents and letters in this group,Anderson's life would probably make for the basis of a great movie with Anderson being villain or hero depending on the perspective it would be written from. In a typed obituary from 1916 Anderson's military record is stated as follows: "Enlisted in a Company from Massachusetts raised by Colonel Thomas W. Higginson. Joined John Brown in Lawrence, Kansas in 1856 and took an active part against the Border Ruffians of Missouri for the purpose of making Kansas a free state. Chaplain 37th. Illinois Infantry September 18, 1861. Colonel 12th Indiana Cavalry March 1, 1864. Commanded the 2nd. Brigade 2nd. Division Cavalry Corps. Department of Massachusetts until November 10, 1865 when he was mustered out. A Commission of Brigadier General was issued to him and was waiting the signature of the lamented Lincoln the day he was assassinated." Among the orig papers in this archive there is a nearly unbelievable manuscript list of 31 "disloyal persons" in Northern Alabama who were killed by Col. Anderson or by his command. The 29th person on this list, Pat Davis, is mentioned in a January 25, 1868 Louisville Journal newspaper article entitled "Why I Became a Rebel". In this article the writer tells of "Pat Davis, a peaceable, quiet, but noble boy, age 17 years, was one evening bathing in a creek a short distance from his home when a squad of soldiers belonging to the 12th Indiana arrested him and took him to camp...Col. Anderson asked if he was a bushwacker? He replied I am not...the answer of Anderson was "you are a damned liar, sir..." he was confined that night...you shall be shot...take a file of picked men and carry Davis to the woods and shoot him and leave him there...he was taken to the woods... tied to a tree and shot...through both hands...second shot passed through another limb and they continued to shoot the boy until he was shot 16 times...It was 3 hours from the time Lt. Lee (Lt. John Mayne Lee) fired the first shot until the firing of the final shot..." The original "hit list" is enclosed in an 1866 letter from Col. Anderson to his father stating why he personally killed or ordered to be killed "disloyal" bushwackers as a provost court were releasing these same men he had orig taken as prisoners; Col. Anderson was indeed court-martialed for the murder of Pat Davis. It is amazing based on the evidence that he was acquitted but this was a Reconstruction court in Nashville, Tennessee. Col. Anderson tells his father "I would go into details of the guerrilla fights in the South, and the various cases of execution of men taken in the act, but such a thing is not perfectly safe since if papers containing such evidence were ever to fall into the hands of the friends of the present administration, they might be used to do harm if in no other way in blackmail which I am fully convinced the President is capable of, particularly since some of his friends in Tennessee and Northern Alabama might be found among the number of guerrillas so slain..." There is an unpublished 13 page typed essay by Ashley Halsey, historian, collector and Associate Editor of the Saturday Evening Post about 1963. "When Anderson finally appeared in Kansas, he grew a beard, bought a horse, and enrolled with John Brown. Kansas itself was divided between New England abolitionist-settlers and Missouri pro-slavery ruffians. On May, of 1856, John Brown, with calculated brutality, led his ruthless, bloodthirsty men to Pottawatomie Creek, five miles from the Brown homestead, and there they mercilessly hacked to pieces five rumored slavery supporters. This was how Anderson first became baptised in blood." The essay goes on "During the fall and winter of 1863, Anderson, now colonel of the 12th. Indiana Cavalry, recruited his men. He hand-picked each lieutenant and captain, every one of them capable of carrying through Anderson's orders, no matter what they may be, or so Anderson thought...By February of 1864. Anderson was fully equipped for war. His friend, (David) Browne, presented him with a new Smith and Wesson nickle-plated revolver as a parting remembrance...It was during this period that the bloody reign of Colonel Edward Anderson began. The region which he commanded was infested with "guerrillas and bushwackers."...For many unfortunate men, a weird smile, a glint of sunshine refracted by the edges of a shiny pistol, and a yellow jet of exploding fulminite were the last earthly scenes of life." This essay is published on the Julia website along with the "Black List" of killed guerrillas and letter to Anderson's father telling of his deeds. The presentation Smith & Wesson shows use but is still fully functional and well preserved retaining most of it's orig plating and factory Mother of Pearl grips. Anderson's sword is a presentation Cavalry officer saber with American shields found cast and engraved on the guard, pommel, top sword mount and drag. The blade is etched with two patriotic panels. There are also 2 Colonel of cavalry straps, both from different pairs, both quite fancy with triple bordered edges and golden cavalry backgrounds to their eagles. Two gold medals, one a gold commander's badge to the Forsyth post GAR with a 1/2 carat diamond and another enameled gold badge inscribed "To Forsyth as Commander 12th Indiana Cavalry", and a membership badge with Chaplain's cross and Col. eagle. There are also GAR documents stating Anderson was the Chaplain in charge of the GAR in it's early days. Also included in this large archive are over 125 Civil War documents and numerous post-war documents and correspondence. Also included is 1st edition of Col. Anderson's book "Campfire Stories" published in 1896 and a later 1900 expanded edition. PROVENANCE: Norm Flayderman Estate Collection. CONDITION: Documents and papers are very good to fine overall with some in lesser condition. Interested parties should examine this massive archive in person. Pistol is very good to fine overall, all matching, mechanically sound, retaining about 90% orig hard metal plate with scattered areas of staining and pitting. Most wear is on grip strap where gun was handled and portions of inscription are light, but all are readable. Other markings are all discernible. Mother of Pearl grips have excellent color and luster with one small 1/4" chip to right outside toe. Sword is very good overall retaining traces of gilt on mounts and hilt. 34" blade has been cleaned overall but etched panels are discernible. Scabbard body is iron with staining, rust and pitting.††There is no agents mark but the Clauberg import mark is found on ricasso. A 3-1/2" silver plaque between mounts "presented to Col. Edward Anderson by the officers of the 12 Indiana Cavalry 1864". Grip wrap is fine as restored by Mr. Flayderman. GAR medals are very good. Post Commanders badge is found in a leatherette box embossed with Col. Andersons name in gold. 4-54456 JS45

*EXTREMELY RARE SINGER MODEL 1911A1 MANAGEMENT PRESENTATION SEMI-AUTOMATIC PISTOL.

Lot 2143: *EXTREMELY RARE SINGER MODEL 1911A1 MANAGEMENT PRESENTATION SEMI-AUTOMATIC PISTOL.

by James D. Julia

March 16, 2015, 10:00 AM EST

Fairfield, ME, USA

Estimated Price: $50,000 - $100,000

Description: Cal. 45 ACP. This pistol is one of only a very few unnumbered toolroom samples produced at the Singer Sewing Machine Company, Elizabeth Works, Elizabeth, NJ, which were later given to Senior Management employees. This particular piece was given to Shirley James Murphy upon his departure from the Elizabeth Works in 1965 when he was transferred to take over management of Singer's largest factory in Clydebank, Scotland. Mr. Murphy was born in May 1919 and graduated from Purdue University in 1942 during which time he was enrolled in the ROTC program and entered active duty in May 1942 with the 401st Field Artillery Batallion serving through the remainder of the war until Feb. 1946 when he was discharged. He remained in the active reserves until 1957 reaching the rank of Major. He actually started to work for Singer as a high school student in the 1930s and returned to Singer in 1946 after his active duty military service. He worked at various Singer operations throughout the northeast U.S., rising to the position of Assistant Vice-President, then on to Scotland where he remained for four years and then was transferred to Ealing, London, England as Senior Vice-President of Manufacturing for Europe. He retired in 1974 after 30 years with Singer. Accompanied by a signed notarized letter from Kathryn A. Yeomans, Mr. Murphy's daughter, wherein she states that this pistol was given to her father when he was Vice-President & General Manager of the Singer Factory in Elizabethport, NJ. She states that at that time he was in charge of manufacturing for the U.S. factories including a furniture factory in Hendersonville, NC and the Craftsman Tool Factory in Pickens, SC. She states that "The tag marked #5 was on the gun." Also accompanied by newspaper articles which include photographs of Mr. Murphy, detailing his promotions. Additionally accompanied by a hard bound book Singer in World War II 1939-1945. This book has the notation inside the front cover "Shirley J. Murphy / Gen. Mgr. E'Port Factory". The book is bound in black leather with gold embossed cover having the Singer logo in the center along with the title on the front. Inside is 233 pages detailing all of the manufacturing at Singer's various plants during World War II. Page 5 details the production of the 1911A1 pistols. In April 1940 "an educational contract" was placed with the Elizabethport factory which called for the preparation of one complete set of tools, fixtures & gauges and the manufacture of 500 complete pistols, plus spare parts. The book states that the purpose of this contract was primarily to provide tools which would be available for further larger production orders and to familiarize the Elizabethport personnel with pistol manufacture. When the 500 pistols of the educational contract were completed the Ordnance Dept. ordered the Elizabethport factory to turn the tooling materials and production information over to another company for production. This pistol has all blue finish with 5" bbl, standard Gov't Model fixed sights with the slide marked "S. MFG. CO. / ELIZABETH, N.J., U.S.A." and without serial numbers or military acceptance proofs. Mounted with orig Singer checkered brown composition grips without donuts and without reinforcements inside. Accompanied by its orig Singer all blue magazine. Pistol has checkered slide stop, thumb safety, hammer spur, recoil spring keeper, magazine release and arched main spring housing with lanyard loop. Also accompanying is a small string tag with the pencil notation "#5". Singer 1911A1 pistols, although not the most rare, certainly are the most desirable of all the Gov't Model pistols produced. The 500 pistols produced by Singer were generally issued to the Army Air Corps, probably along with all the spare parts. Today one can occasionally encounter a "SINGER" marked slide on another maker's frame or a Singer frame with other maker's parts. Rarely does one ever encounter a complete, orig, new & unfired Singer pistol pistol. CONDITION: New & unfired, retaining virtually all of its crisp, bright, orig finish with temper line on front end of slide; left side of frame has some light discoloration above the trigger guard and a spot on the slide in the same area with another small spot on front strap, otherwise the finish is virtually intact; the hammer face & breech face show no evidence of ever having been fired; magazine is equally new as are the grips. Crisp mechanics, brilliant shiny bore. 4-54742

Description: Öl/Lwd., u.r. sign. u. dat. (aus dem Nachlass des Künstlers), informelle Komposition mit schwarzen, grauen und roten Elementen auf schmutzig-weißem Grund, 50x37,5 cm, geleistet - Ulrich Baldszus, 1931 in Ostpreussen geboren, studierte von 1957 bis 1962 bei Prof. H.Wildemann an der Stuttgarter Akademie der bildenden Künste und danach bis zu seinem Tode 2010 als freischaffender Künstler in Leinfelden tätig. Zeitlebens auf der Suche nach der ihm gemäßen Ausdrucksform entstanden aus seiner Hand sowohl abstrakte als auch gegenständliche Werke. Ein Dokumentarfilm über seine Werkreihe der "Technosekten" (aus Schrott- und Abfallteilen zusammengesetzte insektenartige Gebilde), der als 1968 in Wien als Vorfilm zu Stanley Kubriks Kontinentalpremiere von "2001 - Odyssee im Weltraum" gezeigt wurde, machte ihn auch einem internationalen Publikum bekannt. Dieses und die nachfolgenden Lose stammen direkt aus dem nachlass des Künstlers und geben einen schönen überblick über die stilistische Breite von Baldszus' Werk.
