ArnoldWe thank Mr. Karl J. Langer, Gräfelfing, for his friendly and scientific advice.This item can only be delivered to an address within the EUEstimate by Auctionata Expert: 6,000 EuroUnlike many chronometers, this British example has its original wooden lid – navigators often removed the lids so that they could see the time more quickly; this chronometer is additionally protected by a glazed middle section. Spring-driven chronometers were used by mariners to calculate an accurate longitude so as to work out their position at sea. Precision chronometers of this type were made from the late 18th century; thereby the best chronometer were produced in England and France. As the offered chronometer shows, they were usually mounted in a brass gimbal to offset motion at sea and held in a glazed wooden box with a lid.Condition:The marine chronometer is in a good condition, consistent with age. It bears natural signs of age and wear consisting of partial blemishes and tension cracks to the wood, e.g. the upper lid bears a heavier crack. The brass surfaces are minimally rubbed in places. The plaque shows a small crack. One fixing screw is missing. The chronometer is fully functional; original integrity of chronometer and case are expected. Long term precision and regularity cannot be guaranteed. The dimensions of the wooden case measure 19 x 18.5 x 18.4 cm.John Arnold (1736-1800)In 1762, the watchmaker opened his first workshop in London and gained immediate recognition after he had repaired a repeating watch of William McGuire, a well-known watch connoisseur. In 1964 Arnold presents King George III a half-quarter repeater and hereinafter gets numerous orders from the rich nobility. In 1770 he presented to the Board of Longitude his first marine chronometer and it was granted a subsidy of 200 pounds. His chronometer were taken on numerous voyages in the following years. All his life, John Arnold worked on improving the mechanics of clocks. He invented a new type of escapement and simplified the movements. Thus it became much cheaper to produce chronometers in large quantities. In addition to this, Arnold invented the pocket chronometer in 1773. Due to the precision manufacturing he had developed, the watches withstood the harsh conditions of the sea and ran very well. For the first time a precise time measurement was possible and with this the accurate determination of longitude. Many museums have specimen by John Arnold, such as the British Museum, the National Museum of American History and the German Clock Museum.

Historic and Incredibly Rare Revolutionary War Used U.S. Surcharged Long Land Pattern Brown Bess Flintlock Musket and the Revolutionary War Diary of Jonathan Conant with Extensive Research and Transcription

by Rock Island Auction Company

September 12, 2015, 9:00 AM CST

Rock Island, IL, USA

Estimated Price: $55,000 - $85,000

Description: Historic and Incredibly Rare Revolutionary War Used U.S. Surcharged Long Land Pattern Brown Bess Flintlock Musket and the Revolutionary War Diary of Jonathan Conant with Extensive Research and Transcription This Brown Bess musket is marked "TOWER/1741" on the tail of the lock plate and has the "crown/GR" for "Georgius Rex" which is Latin for King George marking ahead of the cock along with a "crown/broad arrow" government ownership mark below the pan. This early date almost assures this musket to have seen use in King George's War, the French and Indian War (Seven Years War) and the American Revolution along with smaller local conflicts between the English colonists and Native Americans such as Pontiac's Rebellion. The right side of the comb has a carved "US", and the top of the barrel has a series of British proofmarks. "ST" appears to be hand marked on the left side of the butt. It has the standard features of the Long Land Pattern including a bayonet stud/front sight, brass furniture including the distinctive side plate and thumb piece, and the nearly full length straight wrist walnut stock with attractively shaped comb. The overall length of the musket is 61 3/8 inches. In the included letter of provenance, Eric Vaule notes that the comb marking is likely a "US" surcharge marking and that he had never seen another Long Land Pattern (what he terms "First Model") Brown Bess with this marking. The letter also details that Vaule purchased the musket and the Jonathan Conant diary from Wm. Dykes Antiques of Wiscasset, Maine, while setting up at the Hartford Gun Show in October of 2002. Dykes had acquired it from a New Hampshire "picker" who had found it and the diary together but refused to identify where. The two were evidently found in the same place and given their untouched condition had remained in some secluded place for more than two centuries. Vaule notes that he referenced examples from the famous Flixton Hall hoard in restoring those components. It was very common for Long Land Pattern muskets to be cut down to the more manageable 42 inch barrel length of the Short Land Pattern or to have been simply used until they were rendered inoperable and then discarded. This musket appears to have remained in use well into the Revolutionary War period and was either captured during the war by the American rebels or already in their hands before the war started. That the musket was found with the following diary also suggests it remained in use well into the revolutionary war period. Weapons in colonial America were relatively scarce and most families would have used the same smooth bore muskets or occasionally a rifle for both hunting and defense. They were often passed down through multiple generations, and thus, rifles or muskets used by colonists in the French and Indian War and other earlier conflicts in service to the crown were passed down to sons and grandsons and used by the men of the Continental Army and militia units during the Revolution. Early colonial or English made weapons remained the primary weapons used by the Americans even after large numbers of French Charleville muskets were imported to help equip the Continental Army and local militias. Jonathan Conant's diary pages hint at how under supplied the Americans were. The loose diary pages are protected in plastic sleeves and contained in a binder titled "The Revolutionary War Diary of Jonathan Conant, 1st New Hampshire Regiment". The binder was assembled by an adept historical researcher and includes transcriptions of each page of the diary in both the original format and more modern style text along with information about the various engagements, towns, and important leaders involved along with copies of documents concerning Conant from the National Archives such as his entries on the pay and muster rolls. Also included are modern copies of the two volume set "A History and Genealogy of the Conant Family in England and America. . ." privately printed in 1837. The diary details Conant's account of his personal experience during the American Revolution and appears to have been written after the war. He served in the Continental Army beginning in March 6, 1777, at the age of 16 and served until April 20, 1780. His account ends after he arrived at Brunswick, New Jersey, on July 4th, 1778. The first entry discusses the arrival of Horatio Gates as commander after General Schuyler was replaced by Congress (referred by Conant as the Grand Council of the United States) due to his failure to hold Fort Ticonderoga. Conant notes the elation of the men upon learning of Gates arrival. He goes on to detail his experience of the battles at and around Saratoga with details of the number killed and wounded in the engagements and the artillery captured. Conant did not know this at the time, but while Gates was credited with the victory at Saratoga, Daniel Morgan (mentioned in the entries), Benedict Arnold, and other unit leaders were actually responsible for the victory largely because they disobeyed Gates' orders. While Gate's received the glory, Arnold was left seething and eventually joined the British as he continued to feel underappreciated and disrespected by his fellow American officers. One passage of importance is a discussion of the men refusing to fight until they received the clothing and wages they were due. Conant notes that the men banded together to march to headquarters and demand an explanation as to why they had not received what they were due. If they did not find the reason sufficient, they resolved to march home. Captain Beal apparently threatened to kill the first man who attempted to cross a brook on their march, but the body of men banded together and defiantly passed him. The captain retreated and then returned to talk. He took a man aside to talk at which time "he ran him through the body and turned to escape but the same man who he ran through on falling backward cocked his gun and shot the Capt. Through the body at the same instant. The next soldier died about sunrise the next morning and the Capt. Died about sunset." This entry highlights multiple important realities of the Continental Army's citizen soldiers. The men were fighting against English tyranny by their own free will and were more than willing to defy their orders if they felt unjustly treated by their officers. It also demonstrates that the army was often poorly organized and supplied which further complicated relations between the leadership and the men. The next section details his experience at Valley Forge during the winter of 1777-1778 including how the men "suffered almost incredibly for want of provisions and clothing." Over 2,500 men died from exposure and lack of adequate housing and supplies by February 1778. After surviving the winter, Conant explains they pursued the British forces as they left from Philadelphia and chased them to Monmouth (June 28, 1778) where the Americans forced the British give up the field and flee to their ships; Conant and the men then marched to Brunswick to celebrate the Fourth of July. The letter also notes that the ramrod, cock, and top jaw are more recent but accurate replacements. The ramrod was in Dykes possession at the time Vaule purchased it, and the latter components were acquired through antique firearm restorer Karl Krueger. Manufacturer: Brown Bess Model: Flintlock BBL: 46 inch round Stock: walnut Gauge: 79 Finish: bright Grips: Serial Number: NSN Class: Antique Condition: Good but exceptional given its age and likely use. The musket has an overall rust brown patina with varying degrees of pitting. The muzzle shows signs of hard use and has been blown out wider than the initial .75 caliber it would have been when issued. The replacement cock and jaw blend well with the piece and would have likely gone unnoticed without the included Vaule letter. The brass has a dark patina with some hints of brighter tones. The stock is fair to fine with a chunk absent at the tail of the lock, wear above the cock, small cracks at the breech and near the tail end of the trigger guard tang on the left, a small section absent on the left at the forend, and general scrapes and scratches overall from years of hard use. The lock is non-functional, but its markings remain legible while the markings elsewhere are partially obscured. The documents are also in exceptional condition given their age and show mild stains and tears. This is an exceptional pair of Revolutionary War Era artifacts destined to be a key piece of an American Revolutionary War or general American military collection. Very few Long Land Pattern muskets have survived the well over two and a half centuries that separate the day they were produced from the present.

Arnold Schoenberg's own copy of Giraud's

by Lion Heart Autographs

September 30, 2015, 12:00 PM EST

New York, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $1,800 - $2,500

Description: Arnold Schoenberg’s Copy of Giraud’s “Pierrot Lunaire” ********** SCHOENBERG, ARNOLD. (1874-1951). Austrian composer and creator of the revolutionary twelve-tone school of composition, which abandoned fixed tonality. Signed book. (“Arnold Schonberg”). 50pp. Small 4to. N.p., January 11, 1912. Schoenberg’s personal copy (or Handexemplar) of the first German trade edition of Otto Erich Hartleben’s German translation of Albert Giraud’s Pierrot Lunaire (Berlin: Der Verlag Deutscher Phantasten, 1893), signed by Schoenberg on the front free endpaper and contained in a slipcase likely designed and constructed by him. ********** In 1912, Schoenberg composed the innovative Pierrot Lunaire, Op. 21, a cycle of 21 poems arranged for speaker and chamber ensemble in which Schoenberg made systematic use of “Sprechgesang,” or “a type of vocal enunciation between speech and song... The preface of Pierrot is Schoenberg’s most explicit statement on Sprechgesang... the performer is also instructed that Sprechgesang should neither resemble natural speech nor recall true singing,” (The New Grove Dictionary). This seminal work was based on Hartleben’s translation of Albert Giraud’s Pierrot lunaire: rondels bergamasques. The poems, featuring the comic pantomime and Commedia dell’Arte figure Pierrot, became a favorite subject of the Symbolists and Decadents around the turn of the 19th century, but Schoenberg’s composition is the most famous and one of the composer’s most significant works. ********** Despite his influence as a 20th-century composer, teacher (Alban Berg and Anton von Webern were just two of his many students), and cultural icon (see the character of Leverkuehn in Thomas Mann’s Dr. Faustus), Schoenberg indulged himself in other, simpler diversions. In January 1915, he wrote to conductor and brother-in-law Alexander Zemlinksy, “I occupy myself with hobbies: carpentry, wallpapering, book-binding, putting things in order. I’ve produced many useful things and in that way I kill some time productively,” (A Schoenberg Reader: Documents of a Life, Auner). Our volume is contained within a handmade clamshell slipcase bound with paper in a red, white and black “harlequin” pattern (a most appropriate design for a Pierrot subject!) with a vellum spine bearing a gold stamped title and crescent moon and stars referring, again, to Pierrot Lunaire, or “Moonstruck Pierrot.” ********** Our first German trade edition followed a small run of 60 copies signed by Hartleben published in 1892. With the original browned wrappers, the front cover of which is partially separated along the spine, and some paper loss at the edges. The box is slightly warped, but in overall good condition. A remarkable association copy: think Beethoven’s copy of Schiller’s “Ode to Joy!”
