Lot 195: SHAKESPEARE, WILLIAM The Works of Mr. William Shakespear; in Six Volumes. Adorn'd with cuts. Revis'd and Corrected, with an Account .

by Doyle New York

April 15, 2015, 10:00 AM EST

New York, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $6,000 - $9,000

Description: SHAKESPEARE, WILLIAM The Works of Mr. William Shakespear; in Six Volumes. Adorn'd with cuts. Revis'd and Corrected, with an Account of the Life and Writings of the Author. By N. Rowe, Esq. London: Printed for Jacob Tonson, within Grays-Inn Gate, next Grays-Inn Lane, 1709; Together with The Works of Mr. William Shakespear. Volume the Seventh. London: Printed for E. Curll at the Dial and Bible against St. Dunstan's Church, and E. Sanger at the Post-House at the Middle-Temple Gate, 1710. This is the small-paper issue of the first octavo and the first illustrated works of Shakespeare. Together seven volumes, bound in full modern calf gilt to period style, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. 7 5/8 x 4 5/8 inches (20 x 12 cm); with 6 portrait frontispieces and 44 engraved plates (including the Shakespeare monument) attributed to Boitard as artist and Kirkall as engraver, the volumes collating as per ESTC T138294 (i.e. with general titles to each volume, and separate titles dated 1709 to each play). Worming to final leaves of volume 6 affecting a few words, other spotting and small stains, a few discreet repairs. This has Viscount Monsell's ex libris in each volume. This is the first octavo as well as the first illustrated edition of Shakespeare, with the text based on the fourth folio. The engraved Arlaud-Duchange portrait is found only in the large-paper edition of the Works (ESTC T138296), and is not called for in the regular edition of the Works. There was possibly a surreptitious edition of the same year; our copy has the textual points appropriate to the genuine issue. The sixth volume contains the six suppositious Shakespeare plays, the London Prodigal, Thomas, Lord Cromwell, Sir John Oldcastle, Puritan, Yorkshire Tragedy, and Locrine that are now believed not to be by Shakespeare. The seventh volume, which includes the Poems, is ESTC T138298; the title pages to Venus and Adonis and Tarquin and Lucrece have separate title pages with the imprint "printed in the year 1709."

by Morgan O'Driscoll

April 20, 2015, 6:00 PM GMT

Skibbereen, Ireland

Estimated Price: €7,000 - €10,000

Description: William Crozier HRHA (1930-2011) Entrance to a Wheat Field, West Cork oil on canvas signed lower right, signed & titled on reverse h:55.50  w:66 cm. Provenance: Private Collection William Crozier was an Irish-Scots still-life and landscape artist based in Hampshire, England and West Cork. Based in London throughout the 1960s and 1970s, Crozier exhibited his works in London, Glasgow, Dublin and all over Europe. From the 1980s, Crozier's painting blossomed with a new freedom and confidence, the result of the stimulus provided by his studio in West Cork. His abstract landscapes and still life painting used sumptuous colour to convey an emotional intensity. To the end of his life, he was endlessly concerned with the challenge of creating a new language in figurative painting. William Crozier represented the UK and Ireland overseas, and was awarded the Premio Lissone in Milan in 1958 and the Oireachtas Gold medal for Painting in Dublin in 1994. In 1991 the Crawford Art Gallery Cork and the Royal Hibernian Academy curated a retrospective of his work. He was elected to Aosdana in 1992 and was elected an honorary member of the Royal Hibernian Academy.

Colt Sherrif's Model 1877 Double Action Revolver with Historic Coffeyville Kansas Sheriff Connelly Back Strap Inscription

Lot 3173: Colt Sherrif's Model 1877 Double Action Revolver with Historic Coffeyville Kansas Sheriff Connelly Back Strap Inscription

by Rock Island Auction Company

April 26, 2015, 9:00 AM CST

Rock Island, IL, USA

Estimated Price: $9,500 - $16,000

Description: Colt Sherrif's Model 1877 Double Action Revolver with Historic Coffeyville Kansas Sheriff Connelly Back Strap Inscription This is an example of a historic Colt Model 1877 DA action revolver that not only has the desirable etched barrel panel and the 3 1/2 inch ejector-less barrel; it was reportedly owned by Marshal Charlie Connelly, Coffeyville Kan. Coffeyville Kansas was the site of probably the most famous (at least attempted) bank robbery by the infamous Dalton Gang. The Dalton gang had turned to a life of crime after their older brother was killed by a horse thief in 1888, and it was rumored that the remaining Dalton brothers, who were marshals, had not been paid their month salaries. In all there were three Dalton brothers in the gang; Emmett "Em" Dalton, born in 1871; Robert "Bob" Renick Dalton, born 1869; and Gratton "Grat" Dalton, born 1861 along with Bill Power and Dick Broadwell. A fourth brother, William M. "Bill" Dalton (1866-1894), was an outlaw as well and mainly rode with the Wild Bunch. From 1891-1892, the Dalton gang went on a spree of train robberies throughout the Midwest. Later, they turned to bank robberies as easy targets and, in attempt to prove that they were better than the James Gang, hatched the plot to rob two bank simultaneously in broad daylight. They picked their prior hometown Coffeyville, Kansas as the town and on Oct 5th, 1892, the gang rode into town. Unbeknown to them, they were recognized by the town's people who alerted the marshall and numerous volunteers. The town set up an ambush and waylaid the gang after coming out of the banks. In the ensuing gun battle four of the town's people, Lucius Baldwin, George Cubine, Charles Brown and Marshall Connelly were killed, and three other citizens were wounded. The gang was decimated; Grat, Bob Dalton, Bill Power and Dick Broadwell were all killed. Emmitt Dalton was captured, convicted and sentenced to life in prison, but only served 14 years. This specific revolver has a full nickel plated finish, rare etched barrel panel markings, and the desirable 3 1/2 inch ejector-less barrel with the standard two-line address on the top. The back strap is engraved (in a jeweler's style) with an early Roman lettering, cut through the nickel plating, reading: "MARSHAL CHARLIE CONNELLY, COFFEYVILLE KAN." The various parts are all correctly serial numbered (matching) with the cylinder stamped on the back side with "405" and an assembly number "301" marked on the loading gate. It has the standard round blade front and frame groove rear sights with the heat blued action screws. It is fitted with a set of checkered hard rubber grips with the Rampant Colt near the top. It includes a survey sheet on the various features and markings on the revolver and a short description on the Coffeyville Museum. No source documentation or previous ownership has been supplied to writer, so we cannot guarantee authenticity.
