Adams, John Quincy

by Ira & Larry Goldberg Coins & Collectibles

June 27, 2015, 10:00 AM PST

Los Angeles, CA, USA

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

Description: Adams, John Quincy. Autograph letter signed ("John Quincy Adams") as U.S. representative from Massachusetts, 1 page, 10 x 8 in., Washington, December 6, 1836.

Of the pamphlet copies, published by the City Government, the number was I believe small, and has been exhausted. There are corrections of some slight errors, in the republication, which make it in some respects more accurate than the pamphlet Edition...." Estimated Value $2,000 - 3,000

Adams, John

by Ira & Larry Goldberg Coins & Collectibles

June 27, 2015, 10:00 AM PST

Los Angeles, CA, USA

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

Description: Adams, John. (1735-1826) Second President of the United States (1797-1801). Autograph document signed ("John Adams"), as Minister to the Netherlands, 1 page, 9 x 7 1/2 in., Amsterdam, Nov.28, 1780. Order draft to " Messrs Hornaca Fizeau & Co, Bankers in Amsterdam" reads "Gentlemen; Please to pay the Honourable Francis Dana, Esq. Two thousand four hundred Livres Tournois, on account of Mr. F. Grand, at Paris. John Adams." With the docket at bottom noting receipt, signed "F.M.Dana".In 1778 Adams was appointed to supplant Silas Deane as a member of the commission to France, which included Benjamin Franklin and Arthur Lee. In 1780 he was sent to the Netherlands as a commissioner; in the next two years he successfully negotiated sorely needed loans and Dutch diplomatic recognition of American Independence. This early financial instrument that Adams sends to Francis Dana (1743-1811), his secretary in France, may have been the first use of the newly acquired Dutch loan. Estimated Value $7,000 - 9,000 Sotheby's New York, June 6, 1996, lot 2.

Adams, John

by Ira & Larry Goldberg Coins & Collectibles

June 27, 2015, 10:00 AM PST

Los Angeles, CA, USA

Estimated Price: $4,000 - $6,000

Description: Adams, John. Partial autograph letter signed ("John Adams"), 1 1/2 pages, 8 x 7 in., [Passy, July 17, 1778]. To [Edme Jacques] Genet, contradicting information which had been published in a French journal: "[In yo]ur forty Eighth Number of Affairs de L'Angleterre et de L'Ameri[que] I find, in Page sixth, marked number I. Resolutions des sauvages contre l'armee Angloise, and in Page 7 marked No. III. Adresse des Principaux Habitans de cette Ville a Robert Rogers, Major General (nomme par le Congres) et Commandant en chef des savages. Both these Papers, you may rely upon it, are Forgeries, and that no such Resolution or Address ever existed. It ought to be contradicted for many Reasons, but especially because if uncontradicted these Papers will be considered by Historians as Proof, that the Americans, first engaged the savages to take an active Part in the War, and will give a Colour to the Argument of the British Administration, that the Indians must be engaged on their side to prevent them from engaging on the other, whereas nothing is further from the Truth. All the Treaties with the Savages made by Congress, or by Commissioners under their Authority, were that they should be neutral. So far from soliciting their Alliance, the Congress, more than once refused the services of Indians. The Honour of employing Indians is wholly British. This Robert Rogers, instead of being addressed by the principal Inhabitants of Philadelphia, was made Prisoner by the Council of safety, the first day of his Landing in that City, and enlarged upon his Parol, in Violation of which he afterwards made his Escape to New York, and had there a Commission given him [by Gener]al Howe....from that Body, he never had anya Single Voice in his favour. Nor had he ever any Conferrence, or Concert with Indians, since this War began, as is asserted in Page 8 Number 4. The whole of this is an Imposition on the World, and you may assert it to be so boldly, for there are Witnesses enough, who can prove it to be so, among whom one, is your humble sert, John Adams."Published in Papers of John Adams, Volume VI. Paper added at top of letter where fire damage affects a few words of text; letter was silked for preservation. Boldly penned and signed. Edme-Jacques Genet (1726-1781) served as the secretary and interpreter for the Count of Provence (the future Louis XVIII), and was the father of Edmond-Charles Genet, better known as Citizen Genet, the first French ambassador to the United States. Robert Rogers (1731-1795), was the American frontiersman who raised and commanded the famous Rogers' Rangers, and who served in the British army during both the French and Indian War and the American Revolution. He was instrumental in the capture of American spy, Nathan Hale. Estimated Value $4,000 - 6,000

Madison, James

by Ira & Larry Goldberg Coins & Collectibles

June 27, 2015, 10:00 AM PST

Los Angeles, CA, USA

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

Description: Madison, James. (1751-1836) 4th President of the United States (1809-1817). Autograph letter signed ("J. Madison Jr") as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives from Virginia, 1 page, 12 7/8 x 8 in., Philadelphia, March 21, 1796. Light toning; a few small archival repairs on verso. To Thomas Jefferson, who had retired to Monticello when he resigned as Secretary of State in December 1793. Madison writes: "At the desire of Mr. de Liancourt I put into his hand this introduction to your remembrance of him as an acquaintance at Paris. He meditates a visit to the Southern States and expects to have the pleasure of taking Monticello oin his route, either in going or returning. I need add nothing to your knowledge of his respectability & virtues, I shall only say that the impression I have of both, induces me to concur cheerfully in the use he now makes of me...." The letter is docketed on the verso in Jefferson's hand: "Madison James. Phila. Mar. 21.96. recd here 22." Jefferson would run for President this same year and come in second to John Adams; he had enough electoral votes to become Vice President. Ironically, the watermark on the paper used by Madison is a crown with the letters "GR." Estimated Value $2,500 - 3,500

Washington, George. Autograph letter signed.

by Profiles in History

June 11, 2015, 11:00 AM PST

Calabasas, CA, USA

Estimated Price: $15,000 - $20,000

Description: 147. Washington, George. Autograph letter signed (“Go Washington”), 2 pages (7.4 x 8.8 in.; 188 x 224 mm.), front and back, “Mount Vernon”, 27 March 1798, to “James McHenry Esqr.”, who was serving as Secretary of War (1796-1800) under President John Adams. Minor toning on single margin; archival reinforcement on overleaf hinge. With the new nation on the brink of war with France, former President George Washington informs the Secretary of War of a treasonable plot - soon to be known as the XYZ Affair.“...if founded, what punishment can be too great for the Actors in so diabolical a Drama. The period is big with events...It has always been my belief that Providence has not led us so in the path of Independence of one Nation to throw us into the arms of another.”Washington writes in full: Dear Sir, Your favour of – came safe, and in due time, for the information contained in it, I thank you; your request was immediately complied with, as every one of a similar nature shall be. A Report is circulated in Alexandria and its vicinity, transmitted (it is said) in private letters from Philadelphia, that a correspondence has been discovered, or more properly, letters have been intercepted from some M rs. of C g s to the D ct y of F , of a treasonable nature - Containing, among other matters, advice not to receive our Envoys; on the contrary, to menace us with hostile appearances, and they might rely upon bringing the U. States to her terms. The name of one person has been mentioned to me. Cruel must these Reports be if unfounded; - and if founded, what punishment can be too great for the Actors in so diabolical a Drama. The period is big with events, but what it will produce is beyond the reach of humankind. On this, and upon all other occasions, I hope the best. It has always been my belief that Providence has not led us so in the path of Independence of one Nation to throw us into the arms of another. And that the machinations of those who are attempting it, will, sooner of later, recoil upon their own heads. Heaven grant it may happen soon, upon all those whose conduct deserve it. With truth I am always Yours Go WashingtonAfter his Presidency, George Washington, maintaining a keen interest in the course of the country, kept up a regular correspondence with Secretary of War James McHenry, who briefed him on affairs of state. In this extraordinary letter, Washington informs McHenry that he has learned the identity of one participant in a treasonable plot - the infamous “XYZ Affair” - not yet fully exposed to the public. According to Washington's understanding of the plot, members of Congress advised the Directory of France not to receive the United States' envoys and to maintain a “hostile appearance” - so that the United States would accede to France's terms. Relations with France at the time of this letter were already badly strained. One year earlier, on 15 May 1797, a special session of Congress had been called, but before it could be assembled, the news arrived that the French Directory had declared all Americans serving on British vessels to be pirates. On 16 May, President John Adams delivered his first war message (of seven) to Congress, but did not ask for a formal declaration of war. Instead, he recommended the arming of merchant vessels, the enlargement of the naval force, and the reorganization of the militia. Two weeks later (31 May), he appointed commissioners to secure a treaty of commerce and amity with France. By March of 1798, it was clear that the mission to France was a failure. On 19 March, President Adams reiterated the recommendations he had made in his earlier war message, and issued an executive order that authorized the arming of merchant vessels. Meanwhile, the Republicans hoped to embarrass the administration by calling for the publication of dispatches from the commission to France to the House of Representatives - the same correspondence Washington describes in his letter to McHenry. Though the Republicans reversed their position once they read the correspondence, the dispatches were printed and distributed (3 April 1798). In this famous “XYZ Affair,” it was revealed that three unofficial agents of the French foreign minister, Tallyrand - identified as X, Y, and Z - had asked for a sizable “loan” to France, a $250,000 “gratuity” for Tallyrand, and an apology for the President’s 16 May 1797 address. The American nation was poised for war. Without officially declaring war, however, Congress declared the treaties with France null and void, increased the army, ordered the construction or purchase of new ships, and created a navy department. On 28 May 1798, Congress authorized Adams to order the commanders of American naval warships to seize any French armed ships interfering with American commercial shipping. Congress also authorized Adams to raise a 10,000 man volunteer army for a period of three years. On 13 June 1798, Congress passed legislation suspending commerce with France and her dependencies. As well, President Adams signed four acts that came to be known as the Alien and Sedition Acts: the period of residence for full citizenship was lengthened from 5 to 14 years (18 June); all aliens regarded as dangerous to public peace and safety could be deported (25 June); enemy aliens in a time of war could be arrested, imprisoned, or banished (6 July); and fines and imprisonment were authorized for citizens or aliens who entered into combinations to oppose execution of national laws, foment insurrection, or to write, publish, or utter false or malicious statements about the chief executive, the legislature, or the government (14 July). [Enforcement of the act resulted in the prosecution of 25 and the conviction of 10 Republican editors and printers.] Though Adams had brilliantly master-minded a plan that effectively prevented war with France, and had preserved the neutrality of the United States, it was also the beginning of the end of the Federalist Party. And it spelled the end of his Presidential career. $15,000 - $20,000

Jackson, Andrew. Autograph letter signed.

Estimated Price: $8,000 - $12,000

Description: 73. Jackson, Andrew. Autograph letter signed (“Andrew Jackson”), 2 pages (7.25 x 12 in.; 197 x 305 mm.), Hermitage, Tennessee, 10 January 1820, written to Col. George Gibson.At the height of the U. S. diplomatic crisis with Spain over Florida, Old Hickory makes plans to return to combat in Florida, while venting his rage against Treasury Secretary William H. Crawford. “I informed Mr. Calhoun & Mr. Monroe, that Wm. H. Crawford is a base man … I have to answer a communication from the Sec. of War recd. yesterday on the plan of the contemplated campaign against Florida”Jackson writes in full: Dear Col. Your letter without date reached me yesterday. I have perused it with much interest. I trust our chief will come forth like himself, & repell the attack. The moment I saw Mr Forsyths correspondence at Madrid, and the report of the Sec. of the Treasury [Crawford], I thought I saw, a meditated blow, at the President & Sec. of War [Calhoun]. There appears in the two things, a systematic understanding, & combination. I do know, and so I informed Mr Calhoun & Mr Monroe, that Wm. H. Crawford is a base man, they too well know him. But he finds he is gone & he wishes to tumble them with him. I trust his shaft will fall harmless at their feet. Please accept a tender of my thanks for your attention to the pamphlet. I shall write you when at leisure. I have to answer a communication from the Sec. of War recd. yesterday on the plan of the contemplated campaign against Florida, to forward by tomorrow’s mail. Having given to my friend Gadsden when he left me my plans, notes, charts of those places expecting to resign, I am taken by surprise, but if I recollect the mouth of the Grand Lagoon afords sufficient depth of water to admit transports. If so our heavy ordinance can be landed there & a few teams of oxen can be landed there & a few teams of oxen & horses will take them to position. For information on this head I have referred the Sec. of War [2] to you. Please present me respectfully to him & Mr Monroe, to Capt. Easter & Brunaugh & should a campaign be ordered I shall expect you with me. Mrs. J. joins me in good wishes for your health & happiness, & believe me to be Your friend sincerely Andrew JacksonThough Jackson’s taking of Florida made him a hero to the American people, his actions prompted international condemnation and brought the U.S. to the brink of war with Spain. Monroe and many in his cabinet questioned the constitutionality of Jackson’s conduct. (Congressman John Rhea said that he carried the secret approval from Monroe to Jackson, but the president claimed that he was ill at the time the letter was sent and had no recollection of having read it.) Calhoun secretly recommended censuring Jackson, but Secretary of State John Quincy Adams supported the general, recognizing that Jackson’s campaign would force Spain to get rid of her troublesome colony.By the time the Senate committee investigating the affair was ready to report, in early 1819, Spain had renounced its claims to West Florida and ceded East Florida to the U.S. in the Adams-Onís Treaty. But as shown by this letter, the intrigue continued after Spain failed to ratify the treaty. Treasury Secretary Crawford recommended the recall of John Forsyth, the American ambassador to Madrid, but Jackson saw that proposal as a ploy to sabotage and embarrass the administration. Such a weak response to Spain would outrage public opinion--and enhance Crawford's prospects to succeed Monroe. The President instead decided upon an ultimatum to Spain: unless they ratified the Treaty, American troops would occupy Florida. Further bloodshed was averted by the replacement of the Spanish monarchy by a republican government that, aware of invasion plans, quickly ratified the Adams-Onis Treaty in the fall of 1820. Thus the need for the military campaign Jackson was preparing in this letter was averted. Jackson was right about Monroe's distrust of Crawford. According to John Quincy Adams’s Memoirs, Monroe and his Treasury secretary very nearly came to blows during an argument over patronage. Crawford raised his cane and called Monroe a “damned infernal old scoundrel,” prompting the president to grab the fireplace tongs to defend himself. (Crawford had once killed a man in a duel, as had Jackson.) Fortunately Crawford and Monroe both cooled their fury. Calhoun later became Jackson’s Vice President, but was often at odds with the president over the threat of southern secession. $8,000 - $12,000

Monroe, James

by Ira & Larry Goldberg Coins & Collectibles

June 27, 2015, 10:00 AM PST

Los Angeles, CA, USA

Estimated Price: $8,000 - $10,000

Description: Monroe, James. Letter signed as President, 1 page, 10 x 8 in., Washington, January 19, 1825. Light toning; small archival repairs to folds on verso. A circular letter, written in a clerical hand, titled "The President of the United States to David Holmes, Senator for the State of Mississippi": "Certain matters touching the public good, requiring that the Senate of the United States should be convened on Friday, the fourth day of March next, you are desired to attend at the Senate chamber, in the City of Washington, on that day: then and there to receive, and deliberate on, such communications as shall be made to you." The election of 1824 was one of the closest, most hotly-contested elections in American history, right up there with 1876 and 2000. There were no political conventions to choose nominees at that time, so they were chosen by their regional roots and personal popularity. There were four candidates in the 1824 race: John Quincy Adams of Massachusetts, who served as secretary of state under James Monroe; hero of the Battle of New Orleans Andrew Jackson of Tennessee; Henry Clay of Kentucky, who was speaker of the House of Representatives; and William H. Crawford, secretary of the treasury under James Monroe and known for his foul temper. Andrew Jackson won the popular vote and also received more electoral votes than the other candidates, but because no candidate received a majority of the electoral vote, the election was thrown to the U.S. House of Representatives. Each of the twenty-four states in the Union would get one vote and would choose among the three candidates who had received the most electoral votes: Jackson, Adams, and Crawford. The candidate with the majority of the votes in the House would become President. It was not until February 9, 1825, over three months after Americans had cast their votes, that the House of Representatives determined who the new President would be: John Quincy Adams was elected by a very slim margin, receiving thirteen votes to Jackson's seven and Crawford's four. Henry Clay, who strongly opposed Andrew Jackson, had rallied support for John Quincy Adams and thus acted as the deciding factor in Jackson's loss. When Adams rewarded Clay by appointing him secretary of state, critics claimed that a "corrupt bargain" had been struck and used this against Adams when he came up for reelection (and lost).This letter, signed by President James Monroe on January 19, 1825, was sent to members of the Senate, instructing them to meet on election day, March 4, even though neither he nor anyone else knew yet who the next President would be! David Holmes (1769-1832) who was a staunch Jacksonian, resigned from the Senate six months after Adams' inauguration, and became governor of Mississippi.

Adams, John. Letter signed, Philadelphia, 5 July 1798.

by Profiles in History

June 11, 2015, 11:00 AM PST

Calabasas, CA, USA

Estimated Price: $8,000 - $12,000

Description: 1. Adams, John. Extraordinary letter signed (“John Adams”) as President, 2 pages (8 x 9.8 in.; 203 x 249 mm.), Philadelphia, 5 July 1798, To the Inhabitants of the Town of Canonsborough and its Vicinity in the County of Washington & State of Pennsylvania. Exhibits toning; expertly reinforced and mended above horizontal fold and .5-inch diagonal separation.With America facing war with France following the XYZ Affair, President John Adams hopes to unite the division among its citizens.“I regret with you that any circumstances should have given a foreign Government ground to believe, that when the safety of the Government, Liberty, Independence and Prosperity of the United States are menaced there can be a division of opinion among the people of America… It is not unnatural therefore for them to conclude that a free Republican Government can never stand against their policy and Power – It is our duty in America to convince them of their Error.” Adams writes in full: Gentlemen A respectful address to the President, Senate and House of Representatives, subscribed by a respectful number of your Names, has been presented to me by the Honorable Alexander Addison Esquire. I regret with you that any circumstances should have given a foreign Government ground to believe, that when the safety of the Government, Liberty, Independence and Prosperity of the United States are menaced there can be a division of opinion among the people of America – this is not however surprizing [sic]; that Government experiences divisions among their own people which it has been able to control only with the Guillotine and Cayenne – In Poland, Geneva, Switzerland, Venice, Genoa, in short in every Republic in Europe, they have seen such divisions, as have ended in partition, dissolution or subjugation – It is not unnatural therefore for them to conclude that a free Republican Government can never stand against their policy and Power – It is our duty in America to convince them of their Error. John AdamsAn American diplomatic commission was sent to France in July 1797 to negotiate problems that were threatening to break out into war. The diplomats, Charles Cotesworth Pinckney, John Marshall and Elbridge Gerry were approached through informal channels by agents of the French Foreign Minister Talleyrand, who demanded bribes and a loan before formal negotiations could begin. The Adams administration released documents substituting the letters X, Y and Z for the names of French diplomats, hence, the label XYZ Affair. Although such demands were not uncommon in mainland European diplomacy of the time, the Americans were offended by them, and eventually left France without ever engaging in formal negotiations. Gerry, seeking to avoid all-out war, remained for several months after the other two commissioners left. His exchanges with Talleyrand laid groundwork for the eventual end to diplomatic and military hostilities.The failure of the commission caused a political firestorm in the United States when the commission’s dispatches were published. Although a formal declaration of war was scrupulously avoided, all preliminary arrangements for military action were made, including the reactivation of George Washington to head the enlarged provisional army (3 July), and the passage of the Alien and Sedition Acts (July 6 and 14). Amid this legislative turmoil, Adams found time to respond to the expressions of local sentiment, which were inundating his office from all areas of the country. The present letter is his response to the “respectful address” from “The Inhabitants of the Town of Canonsborough, State of Pennsylvania.” The French soon adopted a conciliatory posture, fearful of a possible Anglo-American alliance and preoccupied by Napoleon’s dream of a colonial empire. Adams reciprocated by appointing a diplomatic mission which negotiated the Convention of 1800, following Napoleon’s victory at Marengo. Excellent letter exhibiting Adams’ keen diplomatic skills amidst the greatest crisis that would last for the duration of his Presidential term. $8,000 - $12,000

Marshall, John

by Ira & Larry Goldberg Coins & Collectibles

June 27, 2015, 10:00 AM PST

Los Angeles, CA, USA

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

Description: Marshall, John. (1755-1835) Fourth Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States (1801-1835). The leading Federalist of his day, he supported a stronger federal government, over the objections of the Jeffersonian Republicans, who wanted stronger state government. His court opinions helped lay the basis for U. S. constitutional law and made the Supreme Court a coequal branch of government, along with the legislative and executive branches. Autograph letter signed, 2 pages plus integral holograph address leaf, on laid watermarked paper, Antwerp, Sept. 22, 1797. Written to Rufus King, Minister Plenipotentiary of the United States in London, as Marshall made his way to Paris on a delicate diplomatic mission which would become the famous XYZ affair. Marshall refers to a letter he had written King from the Hague, concerning some bills of exchange he had sent at his brother's request, to be opened by Sir Robert Herries, a banker in London, from whom Marshall had heard nothing. Marshall asks King to communicate with the banker and to let him know the result. He continues: "We are thus far on our way to Paris to which place we proceed slowly in the hope that Mr. Gerry of whose arrival at Helvoet we have been informd will overtake us. We possess no information which would lead us to augur well of the result of our negotiations. A Mr. Riou who has movd to rescind the resolution referring the proposition of Partout to a committee has assignd among other reasons for the measure that the resolution had a tendency not intended by the council, to discourage & alarm the privatiers. It seems to be expected here that neither the negotiations with the Emperor nor at Lisle will terminate in peace. To day, being the anniversary of the foundation of the french republic, was celebrated in the church with music & in the fields & street by military exercises. The exhibition was by no means crouded. This is probably attributable to the deep impression made on the inhabitants of Antwerp by the late proclamation concerning their priests & external symbols. I regret very much that I cannot have the pleasure & advantage of an hour with you. I woud for that purpose have passd through England had I not apprehended that my doing so might have been considerd on both sides the atlantic as an evidence of partialities I never felt...."Relations between the U.S. and France had been strained since Jay's Treaty with Great Britain in 1795. French privateers were harasssing American merchant ships and the two nations seemed headed for war. Marshall, along with Charles Cotesworth Pinckney and Elbridge Gerry, were dispatched to Paris to try to resolve the differences between the two countries, but French Foreign Minister Talleyrant refused to meet with them and demanded a $250,000 bribe before he would even consider normalizing relations. President John Adams was outraged and, after much urging from Republicans, who believed he had trumped up the story, released the diplomatic documents, replacing the names of the French agents with the letters X, Y, and Z. The entire nation was outraged and the slogan of the day became: "Millions for defence, but not a cent for tribute." There followed an undeclared naval war with France, known as the Quasi-War, which lasted for two years. U.S. and French negotiators restored peace with the Convention of 1800, also known as the Treaty of Mortefontaine. Under the terms of the Convention, France accepted U.S. neutrality rights at sea and discharged the U.S. from its obligations under the alliance signed with France in 1778. In return, the United States granted France most-favored-nation status as a trading partner. Estimated Value $7,000 - 9,000 R.M. Smythe & Co., Inc., May 11, 2000, lot 197.

Marshall, John

by Ira & Larry Goldberg Coins & Collectibles

June 27, 2015, 10:00 AM PST

Los Angeles, CA, USA

Estimated Price: $1,200 - $1,500

Description: Marshall, John. Autograph letter signed ("Jmarshall"), 2 pages, 7 1/4 x 6 in., Richmond, July 2, 1889. Written on laid watermarked paper; tear at upper left margin, easily repaired and small paper loss at center left margin, affecting one word of text on verso; creasing at top right, and a few scattered pinholes. To an unnamed recipient [identified as John Hatley Norton by The Papers of John Marshall, letter included]. In 1889, Marshall, who would be appointed Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court in 1801, in which capacity he would serve until his death 34 years later, was the attorney for Norton in his suit with Francis Corbin. Norton's father was the founder of a consignment merchant firm that operated in London and Virginia. Marshall writes: "In the claim you enquire into concerning your fathers debtors...Your appeal with Mr. Page would have been tried last court had that gentleman livd till then, his death has prevented a decision & no person has as yet qualified as his executor against whom the suit may stand revivd. I delivered...the letter you enclosd me but he returnd no answer. Instead of bringing a suit in chancery to perpetuate your testimony respecting the land you say you ha[ve] purchasd & paid for it woud I presume be better to bring a suit for a conveyance....Your suit with Corbin will be tried in Fredericksburg next fall. No plea can...be put in, it must be tried on the issue already made up...."Ref: Cullen and Johnson, eds., The Papers of John Marshall, II, pp 39-40.

Steinbeck, John

by Ira & Larry Goldberg Coins & Collectibles

June 27, 2015, 10:00 AM PST

Los Angeles, CA, USA

Estimated Price: $3,000 - $5,000

Description: Steinbeck, John. A collection of three autograph letters signed, two typed letters signed, and a postcard with an autograph note signed, all sent to Leonard Lyons who wrote a column--"The Lyons Den"--in the New York Post from 1934 to 1974; the column was syndicated in over 100 newspapers.An excellent 1944 ALS ("John Steinbeck" with a postscript signed "John" and "John Steinbeck" on the envelope), responds to Lyons' request "to write something about the war--some scene, some anecdote...." Steinbeck writes a wonderful, long description (2 folio pages) about who will write the real literature of the war: "...I don't think it is going to come from war correspondents nor from professional writers...I think the literature of the war is being born now, but it won't show up perhaps for years. It's going to come from some gawky kid who was jerked from high school to boot camp to combat without knowing what was happening to him...." In a 2 page (folio) ALS ("John"), no date (envelope postmarked JUL 22 1950) which Steinbeck asks Lyons to send to "Myron," he gives rates for facetious items: "...Rates are as follows for products of not more than five letters - $50 for each performance...Product name in luminous paint $15 extra....[W]e can offer you six behinds (12 units) in Peep Show. This is a very pretty display when each buttock carries one letter of product name or slogan....Please send this to Myron. We willl not starve this winter even if his show is not a hit." A TLS ("John"), 1 page, 11 x 8 1/2 in., with 175 East 78th St. address, July 1st (c. 1946-49), is about "a story I wrote from Algiers about a little elf who made whisky materialize in a room of the Alletti Hotel." He goes on to tell the story of the "elf" who inspired the story, Charles Lytle, and suggests that Lyons could get a good story from Lytle.A tongue-in-cheek ALS ("John Steinbeck") on The Plaza letterhead, 1 page, Oct. 9, n.y., is about sable reproduction: "Our most recent studies show that sables are peculiar in one particular direction. They reproduce by a splitting process as amoebi [sic] do. This tendency has caused some consternation in the sable market...." An ANS ("John") on a postcard, postmarked Sab Harbor, N.Y., Nov. 6, 1962, thanks Lyons and his wife for a congratulatory telegram (Steinbeck had just won the Nobel Prize for Literature). "Friends are good to have in good times, too." With added note from Elaine Steinbeck. Finally, a TLS ("John"), 1 page, on engraved, thin paper, 11 x 8 1/2 in., Sag Harbor, Long Island, New York, Nov. 21, 1962, thanking Lenny for Mary Hemingway's address and discussing his on-going feud with Henry Luce and his magazines: "...my work is always clobbered in Life and Time. Even a news item about me is made into a slur." He gives Lyons an item to print in his column, to use or not as he wished: "John Steinbeck was asked about his reaction to Time Magazine's savage opposition to his being awarded the Nobel prize for literature. 'I think it's wonderful,' he said. They used the shape of my ears as one more literary short coming. This opens up a whole new field of literary criticism...." Estimated Value $3,000 - 5,000
