JAPANESE NAVAL CAPTAIN PHOTO ALBUM COLLECTION

by Alexander Historical Auctions | Alexander Autographs

July 7, 2015, 10:00 AM EST

Chesapeake City, MD, USA

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

Description: JAPANESE NAVAL CAPTAIN PHOTO ALBUM COLLECTION An exhaustive collection of hundreds of photographs, along with documents, clippings, magazines, and other ephemera relating to the career of Imperial Japanese naval commander Abe Toshio, HIJMS FUSHIMI. The albums stretch from the 1920's up to the end of the war, and largely concern the China campaign, including Shanghai, Wuhan, Nanjing, and the Yellow River. Abe was captain of the FUSHIMI from 1934 until the vessel was destroyed in 1944. The albums, which include about 500 photos, show landings of marines, demolition of obstacles, sinking of enemy ships, experiments with mines and torpedoes, destruction of river blockages, aerial photos of enemy positions and villages, bombardments, group photos, etc. Also present is a large quantity of photographs of other river gunboats (American, British, USS GUAM, HMS SCARAB) as well as other warships. Ephemera includes letters, invitations, notes from other commanders, including the HMS SCARAB, crew and officer's lists and death notices. The grouping even includes Toshio's own death notice: "Captain Abe Toshio, honorable war death, Showa 20th year (1945), February 25th, given by the Naval minister Mitsumasa Yonai". On Dec. 8, 1941, FUSHIMI became the flagship for Vice Admiral Prince Teruhisa Komatsu's First China Fleet Yangtze Squadron, Upper River Division, and supported operations by the Imperial Japanese Army. From Sep. 4, 1943, FUSSHIMI was attached to the Lower River Division, and patrolled Tung Ting Lake and adjacent waterway. On Nov. 29, 1944, she was attacked by Republic of China Air Force aircraft and sunk near Anqing. In September 1945, Fushimi was given to the Republic of China as a prize of war.

[Civil War] Albumen of USS Tallapoosa, Civil War gun boat, carried Admiral Farragut

by Period Americana

July 7, 2015, 7:30 PM EST

Boston, MA, USA

Estimated Price: $100 - $125

Description: USS Tallapoosa was a wooden-hulled, double-ended steamer in the United States Navy during the American Civil War. She was outfitted with heavy guns for intercepting blockade runners and howitzers for shore bombardment. Tallapoosa remained in service after the war and served in various capacities, including school ship for midshipmen of the United States Naval Academy. She was sold in Uruguay in 1892. After the war, the ship became a dispatch vessel, beginning a role which soon brought Tallapoosa one of her more interesting missions. In January 1870, she carried Admiral David Farragut to Portland, Maine, where he met HMS Monarch at the end of that British turreted battleship's voyage across the Atlantic Ocean to return to the United States the remains of philanthropist George Peabody who had died in England.

In part: "…a letter by each of my loved friends in the United States, DuPont and Mr. Reed. I hope however nothing but business has detained you and prevented my having the pleasure of hearing from you…I do congratulate you on Mr. Reed's being the Treaty which has been ratified so punctually. We were much too high handed in our business making the Treaty and the Chinese have found it is as easy to break a Treaty, as we found it to make it. I hope we shall have wiser councils and that not a shot may be fired. As for all the lies and talk about Treachery on the part of the Chinese, it is absurd, they did their best for their Emperor and Country, and we did the best for ours…I read in your papers that there have been Committees…and Naval officers…Will you give a copy of what…we expect in Retirement in our Navy. DuPont says all Admirals above 70 Captains above 60 years of age…". More.
