1850s INTACT AUTOGRAPH COLLECTION WITH NOTABLES, INCLUDING JEFFERSON DAVIS ALS

by Regency-Superior Auctioneers

September 30, 2015, 11:00 AM CST

St. Louis, MO, USA

Estimated Price: $7,000 - $9,000

Description: Fascinating and valuable collection on pages in binder, the core of which was formed by high school student named David Ranlett in 1852-53. Cornerstone is July 9, 1853, handwritten letter (ALS) by Jefferson Davis, who was appointed Secretary of War earlier that year (with accompanying free-franked letter signed by another). Other highlights include James Buchanan (as president) on oversized Customs House document, Daniel Webster (x3, one cut, damaged full signature and initials on document), John Tyler (cut), Washington Irving (dated signature on page with envelope), Levi Lincoln, R.B. Taney, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Salmon P. Chase, George Brancroft, Charles Francis Adams, Jared Sparks and many others. Several, including Sparks and Adams, write to the young autograph collector, expressing disappointment that they do not have examples of historical figures to offer. One references an enclosed snip of George Washington's writing (which has since been lost). Free-franked covers are intact. Collector removed stamps from others many years ago. Bonus items include 'Nathan Hale' cut signature (doesn't match known signatures, so is likely an early example of non-malicious fake to fulfill request for historical figure), and Very old printed (not signed) Thomas Jefferson letter and envelope. Total of more than 35 items, with tremendous research potential and actual value. Fine overall.

Future Secretary of the Treasury John Adams Dix autograph letter signed to President Franklin Pierce re: NY Democratic politics

by Lion Heart Autographs

September 30, 2015, 12:00 PM EST

New York, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $300 - $500

Description: Addressed to President Franklin Pierce********** DIX, JOHN ADAMS. (1798-1879). Veteran of the War of 1812, Union general, U.S. senator, secretary of the treasury, and New York state governor. ALS. (“John A. Dix”). 1p. 4to. New York, March 14, 1853. To the fourteenth president of the United States FRANKLIN PIERCE (1804 1869). ********** “Genl. Jas. W. Nye of Syracuse is a candidate for the office of Dist. Atty. Of the Northern Dist. of N.Y. He is a good lawyer, an able advocate, and a man of stern democratic principles. Should the appointment he desires be confirmed on him, he will discharge the duties of the office ably and faithfully...” ********** A native of New Hampshire, Dix entered the military at age 14, serving in the War of 1812 and along the Canadian frontier, rising to the rank of captain. After completing his military service, Dix embarked on a law career in New York and became that state’s adjutant general in 1831. He entered politics in 1842 when he became a member of the state assembly and his election to the U.S. Senate came just three years later. After an unsuccessful gubernatorial bid in New York he briefly served as assistant U.S. treasurer. “Franklin Pierce in 1853 intended to make him secretary of state, but party enemies interfered, and when he was offered the post of minister to France, this also was snatched from him by Southern opposition,” (DAB). In January 1861 Dix was appointed President Buchanan’s secretary of the treasury but shortly thereafter, as many men of his age, he reentered the military at the outbreak of the Civil War, serving from 1861 to 1865 and rising to the rank of major general; it was Dix who suppressed the New York City Draft Riots. In 1873 he became governor of New York. Like Dix, Pierce was from New Hampshire, serving his state as senator and district attorney. He refused Polk’s offer to become U.S. attorney general in 1846, joining the military instead. After the Mexican War he won the 1852 presidential election. Our letter was written only ten days after Pierce took office and just seven days after filling his cabinet, which included Jefferson Davis as secretary of war. The subject of our letter, James W. Nye (1814-1876), was a lawyer of modest origins who became a district attorney 1839 and served as judge from 1840-1848. After an unsuccessful congressional campaign, he moved to Syracuse where he practiced law from 1851-1857, during which time our letter was written. “When Fort Sumter was fired upon, Nye became an enthusiastic supporter of Lincoln, using his remarkable gift as a stump orator in behalf of the administration, and he was soon appointed governor of the newly created territory of Nevada,” (DAB). After Nevada achieved statehood, he became the state’s representative in the Senate, returning to his native New York several years before his death. ********** A fine letter with a three-way association. Very darkly written. Tipped to a strip on the left edge.

Second letter, Dec. 22, 1885, on black-bordered mourning stationery: '...if you see any other mistakes you will let me know as soon as possible for although we printed 325,000 for the first addition [sic] all have been sold and orders are coming in...'; & April 11, 1888: '...I thank you for the interest you have taken in the Badeau matter.

Stow Wengenroth

by East Coast Books

September 12, 2015, 7:00 PM EST

Wells, ME, USA

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

Description: Stow Wengenroth (1906-1978) American artist and lithographer, born in 1906 in Brooklyn, New York. Wengenroth was once called "America's greatest living artist working in black and white" by the American realist painter Andrew Wyeth, and he is generally considered to be one of the finest American lithographers of the twentieth century. He studied at the Art Students League of New York under George Brant Bridgeman and John Carlson from 1923 to 1927, then at the Grand Central School of Art under Wayman Adams. Wengenroth was elected a member of the National Institute of Arts and Letters (renamed the American Academy of Arts and Letters) in 1942 and was also a member of the Connecticut Academy of Fine Arts and the Prairie Printmakers. He was elected an Associate of the prestigious National Academy of Design in 1938, and a full Academician in 1941. Wengenroth was also the author of several influential books on lithography. Wengenroth's lithographs are found in most major American collections, including the Library of Congress, Whitney Museum of American Art, and Metropolitan Museum of Art. During his career, Wengenroth became well-known for his detailed depictions of the seascapes and landscapes of New England and, particularly, Maine . As an artist, he eschewed colour in his lithographs but rather focused on shadow, light, and form to transmit detail and dimension. While his urban scenes of Manhattan and the New York City environs are especially coveted by the current market, Wengenroth was most adept at creating sincere yet vivid simulacra of the New England littoral and interior. Offered here is an unsigned 2-sided watercolor. Sand dunes on one side and a most unusual abstraction watercolor on the other. Unusual abstraction on the one side. This is guaranteed, without a time limit, to be by Stow Wengenroth and we will send along a letter of guarantee to the winning bidder. This piece is approx. 14-3/4 x 19-3/4 in. His watercolors & drawings are quite uncommon.
