Ledyard was a Lieutenant in the Connecticut Militia and was in command of Fort Griswold when it fell to the British under Benedict Arnold in 1781. After refusing to surrender with his small force against a trained British force four times the size of his, the British finally stormed the fort and took 80 more lives, even though Ledyard offered his sword to the commander, Major Bromfield.In 1776, Williams was elected to the Continental Congress to replace Oliver Wolcott, who, certain that the vote for the Declaration would be affirmative, had returned home for an overdue visit. Williams arrived too late to vote for Independence, but signed the engrossed Declaration. He was appointed a member of the committee to frame the Articles of Confederation and in 1787, he attended the Hartford convention, where Connecticut ratified the Federal Constitution. Estimated Value $1,750 - 2,250 R.M. Smythe & Co., May 11, 2000, lot 17.

Estimated Price: $90,000 - $100,000

Description: CATLIN, George (1796-1872). London: George Catlin, Egyptian Hall, 1844. FIRST EDITION, FIRST ISSUE, WITH PLATES HAND-COLOURED UNDER THE SUPERVISION OF THE ARTIST, AND THE ONLY ISSUE PUBLISHED BY CATLIN HIMSELF. Folio (22 4/8 x 16 4/8 inches). Letterpress title-page, dedication "To the Reader" and 8 leaves of explanatory text. 25 EXCEPTIONALLY FINE HAND-COLOURED lithographs after Catlin by Catlin and McGahey (one or two short marginal tears, not affecting the image). Original half maroon morocco, purple cloth gilt by A. Tarrant; preserved in a modern maroon cloth, clamshell box. First edition, first issue, also published loose in portfolio. In 1827, George Catlin, an illustrator from Philadelphia, became the first artist to attempt the perilous journey up the Missouri River, and the first to create visual records of his experiences traveling among the Plains Indians of North America. The artist himself best expressed his goal in the preface to the first edition of his North American Indian Portfolio: "The history and customs of such a people, preserved by pictorial illustrations, are themes worthy the lifetime of one man, and nothing short of the loss of my life shall prevent me from visiting their country and becoming their historian." Over the next eight years, Catlin would travel extensively throughout the Western Plains of America doing just that, and accumulating his "Indian Gallery," which consisted of hundreds of oil paintings he executed presenting the appearances and customs of the 48 different tribes of Native Americans he encountered during his journey.

by Charlton Hall

West Columbia, SC, USA

Estimated Price: $800 - $1,200

Description: Documents: Early Charleston Rutledge family correspondence 74 letters from Sarah Motte Rutledge to her son, John Rutledge III, dated 1818-1835 26 letters from John Rutledge III to his mother, Sarah Rutledge 19 letters to John Rutledge III from his siblings 11 letters from Maria Rose Rutledge to her husband, John Rutledge III 15 business letters to General John Rutledge, Jr., 1817-1818 together with: 2 Rutledge-family related letters 9 account books, including accounts of family expenses in Newport, Rhode Island (1801-1803), 6 general family account books (1812-1830), notes from John Rutledge, Jr. to his overseer, Robert McIntosh (c.1818), and accounts of Poplar Grove Plantation (1869-1872) (156pcs) Provenance: Descended in the Rutledge family Other Notes: The Rutledge family of Charleston has a long and significant place in South Carolina state history. An archive of documents once belonging to some of the family's and South Carolina's earliest political, military, and landowning ancestors has descended through the family to a present heir. Included in this lot: Letters from Sarah Motte Smith Rutledge (1777-1852), dated between 1818-1835, written from various places in England, including London, Bath, and Brighton, primarily to her son John Rutledge III. Sarah M. Rutledge was estranged from her husband as the result of a scandal involving an illicit relationship that she had with a young physician she met in 1801 in Newport, Rhode Island, where the Rutledge family lived during the time that John Rutledge Jr. served in Congress. An entry in John Rutledge's Newport Account Book, dated 5 November 1801, shows a payment of $30 to "Dr. Senter" for medical services. Dr. Horace Senter (1780-1804), a member of a prominent Newport family, later journeyed south, and renewed his relationship with Mrs. Rutledge. Dr. Senter, according to the "Register of Deaths and Burials" for Savannah, Georgia, died in that city on 19 January 1804 of "Lockjaw occasioned by a Wound" suffered "in a Duel with the Hon[ora]ble John Rutledge Esquire." Rutledge and his wife separated in 1809 and she later moved to England where she spent the remainder of her life. The letters she wrote from England describe her life there, family matters, and her travels. Letters from John Rutledge to his mother are also in the archive, as well as two documents that relate to the administration of Mrs. Rutledge's estate after her death on 14 January 1852. In one document, the Ordinary of Charleston District granted letters of Administration to Hugh R. Rutledge, Mrs. Rutledge's grandson, on 20 March 1852, and in the second document, an English court granted "Limited Administration of the effects of Mrs. S. M. Rutledge, decd." to her son John Rutledge on 10 July 1852. Other letters in the collection include several sent to John Rutledge III from his siblings, 1820-1825; several from Maria Rutledge to her husband, 1819-1821; and business-related letters to John Rutledge, Jr. 1817-1818. Several other 19th-century letters are also present. Additionally, there are six bank account books from the period 1812- 1830, in the names of John Rutledge Jr. and John Rutledge III in the archive. One account book, labeled "Newport" and dated 16 June 1801, includes expenses incurred from 1801 through 1803, while another account book details the expenses for Poplar Grove Plantation from 1869 through 1872, with lists of monthly and contract laborers and the amounts paid to each. One notebook, circa 1818, contains instructions from John Rutledge, Jr. to his overseer Robert McIntosh, notes about allowances paid to his sons John and Robert, and quarterly advances to his estranged wife.

Morgan Weistling - The Promise

by Artistic Holdings Company

Las Vegas, NV, USA

Estimated Price: $510 - $680

Description: Morgan Weistling - The Promise - Open Edition Canvas Image Size: 18"w X 24"h. - The Difference Between A Magnificent Work Of Art And An Illustration Lies In The Artist’s Passion For The Subject At Hand. Such Is The Case With The Power Of Morgan Weistling’s Christian Art. The Disciples Matthew (chapter 9) And Mark (chapter 5) Both Have Accounts Of Jarius, Leader Of A Synagogue, Who Pleaded With Jesus To Heal His Dying Daughter. Jesus Agreed To See Her But Before They Reached The House, They Received Word That The Girl Had Died. Jesus Told Her Father Not To Be Afraid, But To Believe. When They Reached The House, Jesus Asked Everyone To Leave Except His Disciples Peter, James And John And The Child's Parents. Then He Took The Girl's Hand And Commanded Her To Get Up. The 12-year-old Girl Rose And Walked Around The Room. Everyone Was Astonished, But Jesus Told Them To Give Her Something To Eat And Not To Tell Anyone. "i Chose To Depict That Moment When The Little Girl Had Been Given Her Life Back By Jesus,” Says The Artist. “i Imagined The Closeness She Must Have Felt For Him. This Painting Illustrates A Real Event In Time, And It Is Also Symbolic Of The Life Jesus Offers Everyone. As A Christian, It Is Easy To Understand The Girl’s Gratitude Because We Have All Been Given Life. I Am Reminded Of Jesus' Offer To All In John, Chapter 11: 'i Am The Resurrection And The Life. He Who Believes In Me Will Live, Even Though He Dies; And Whoever Lives And Believes In Me Will Never Die. Do You Believe This?'”

Einstein, Albert. Autograph letter signed.

by Profiles in History

June 11, 2015, 11:00 AM PST

Calabasas, CA, USA

Estimated Price: $15,000 - $25,000

Description: 38. Einstein, Albert. Extra-illustrated autograph letter signed (“Albert”), 3 pages (approx. 5 x 6.75 in.; 127 x 171 mm.), in German, Berlin, 28 March 1924, written to his maternal uncle, Caesar Koch, who at the time of this letter was celebrating his 70th birthday. Einstein recalls his childhood and the gift of a “little steam engine” from his beloved maternal uncle - a fantastic early source of great inspiration for one of the twentieth century's greatest minds.Einstein writes in full: Dear Uncle! To bring our people to write letters a major event is required. This is now the case with your 70th birthday. But although I write so seldom, you are still my beloved uncle, in particular, one of the few people who warms my heart every time I think of you. Even when I was very young, a visit from you was a very special occasion, and I will remember for the rest of my life the wonderfully pretty little steam engine that you once brought back for me when you returned from Russia. [Einstein then pens a drawing of the steam engine.]Can you still recall it? Then when you came to see us in Munich with your slender and impish young wife and finally after many years when I visited you in Antwerp shortly before the marriage of Susanne [Caesar's daughter]. Unforgettable memories have remained. Since then I have often wished to visit, but I have never found a way as there was always a need to find something else that would fit in with a visit. And now you are celebrating your 70th birthday, and my hair is already nearly gray. Now I wish you happy years, and hope that you will continue to have with your dear children the same untroubled happiness that you have enjoyed until now. I salute you with all my heart, and be with my dear aunt in your lovely celebration remembered. By your Albert.A wonderful letter in which Einstein - on the occasion of his maternal uncle's 70th birthday - celebrates life and the joys of his childhood. The letter contains Einstein's marvelous rough sketch of the steam engine he received from his uncle when he returned once from a visit to Russia.By all accounts, the young Einstein possessed remarkable native talents. But they were slow to develop. As an infant, he was at first slow to speak. Even at the age of nine, Einstein could not speak with ease. Certain events were to prove stimulating to his young inquiring mind - such as the various gifts he received throughout his boyhood, including the steam engine he received from his maternal uncle. On another now-legendary occasion, when he was about five, Einstein received a compass. In his own autobiography, Albert Einstein: Philosopher-Scientist (1949), Einstein himself wrote that the gift of a compass from his father, Hermann Einstein, caused him to tremble and grow cold: “I experienced a miracle...as a child of four or five when my father showed me a compass...There had to be something behind objects that lay deeply hidden...the development of [our] world of thought is in a certain sense a flight away from the miraculous...” The fact that the needle, moved by an invisible force, always pointed in the same direction, made a lasting impression on the boy.Growing up in a stable and warm milieu, the young Einstein received continued inspiration from his extended family. Besides his beloved maternal uncle Caesar, there was also his paternal uncle Jakob, who inspired Einstein's early interest in mathematics by presenting the young lad with the gift of a geometry book. And then there was also Jewish medical student Max Talmey, a frequent guest at the Einstein family home, who gave the young Einstein popular books on science, technology, mathematics and philosophy. $15,000 - $25,000

Description: Title: Jumbee and Other Uncanny TalesAuthor: Henry S. Whitefield - Henry St. Clair Whitehead was an American writer of horror fiction and fantasy.Henry S. Whitehead was born in Elizabeth, New Jersey, on March 5, 1882, and graduated from Harvard University in 1904 (in the same class as Franklin D. Roosevelt). He led an active and worldly life in the first decade of the 20th century, playing football at Harvard, editing a Reform democratic newspaper in Port Chester, New York, and serving as commissioner of athletics for the AAU.He later attended Berkeley Divinity School in Middletown, Connecticut, and was ordained a deacon in the Episcopal Church in 1912. From 1918 to 1919 he was Pastor of the Children, Church of St. Mary the Virgin, New York City. He served as acting archdeacon of the Virgin Islands from 1921 to 1929. While there, living on the island of St. Croix, Whitehead gathered the material he was to use in his tales of the supernatural. A correspondent of H. P. Lovecraft, Whitehead published stories from 1924 onward in Adventure, Black Mask, Strange Tales, and especially Weird Tales; in his introduction to Jumbee, R. H. Barlow would later describe Whitehead as a member of "the serious Weird Tales school.". Whitehead's supernatural fiction was partially modelled on the work of Edward Lucas White and William Hope Hodgson. Whitehead's "The Great Circle" (1932) is a lost-race tale with sword and sorcery elements.In later life, Whitehead lived in Dunedin, Florida, as rector of the Church of the Good Shepherd and a leader of a boys group there. Barlow collected many of his letters, planning to publish a volume of them; but this never appeared, although Barlow did contribute the introduction to Whitehead's "Jumbee and Other Uncanny Tales" (1944). H. P. Lovecraft was a particular friend of Whitehead's, visiting him at his Dunedin home for several weeks in 1931. Lovecraft said of him: "He has nothing of the musty cleric about him; but dresses in sports clothes, swears like a he-man on occasion, and is an utter stranger to bigotry or priggishness of any sort."Lovecraft expressed admiration for Whitehead's work, described his story "The Passing of a God" as "perhaps representing the peak of his creative genius." Stefan Dziemianowicz describes Whitehead's West Indian tales as "virtually unmatched for the vividness with which they convey the awe and mystery of their exotic locale".(Courtesy of Wikipedia)Publisher: Arkham HouseCity: Sauk City, WisconsinYear: 1944Printing Information: First EditionBinding Style: HardcoverPagination: xii/394 pagesWidth: 5.75" Height: 7.75"Book Details: The stories for this volume were taken chiefly from the magazines Weird Tales and Adventure.Condition / Notes: This collection of fantasy and horror short stories has an introduction is by Whitehead's fellow Floridian Robert H.
