Contemporary blue morocco gilt, stamp signed: 'Doves Bindery 19 C-S 19,' gilt lattice design with Tudor roses on covers and spines, gilt ruled dentelles, edges gilt, blue cloth chemise and slipcase. Very minor wear and browning, adhesive residue from removed bookplate on front paste-down. Provenance: George Clinton Ward (1863-1933), presentation inscription on rear blank by Cobden-Sanderson's wife, Anne: 'I am so glad dear Mr. Ward this beautiful example of the Doves Press should be amongst the precious books on the shelves of your library. 'The Poetry of Earth is never dead.' Anne Cobden-Sanderson, Pasadena. April 19th 1926.' WITH: Engraved portrait of Thomas Cobden-Sanderson, by Alphonse Legros, dated 1893, 130 x 88 mm (image size), with inscription in lower margin: 'To Mr. & Mrs. George Ward from Anne Cobden-Sanderson, Pasadena April 1926.' LIMITED EDITION, one of 200 copies. A fine example of the work of Arts and Crafts artist, bookbinder, and co-founder of the Doves Press, Thomas J. Cobden-Sanderson (1840-1922). Both the book and portrait are inscribed by his wife Anne (1853-1926), dated 4 years after his death. Born Thomas J. Sanderson and Anne Cobden, the couple both assumed the hyphenated name Cobden-Sanderson when they married. She was as well known as a firebrand as her husband was an artist: an outspoken socialist, suffragette and advocate of vegetarianism. The inscriptions are most likely to George Clinton Ward (1863-1933), father of American suffragette Louise Ward Watkins, written during Anne's trip to California in 1926, shortly before her death.

            Thomas JEFFERSON 1743-1826 Lettre autographe signée à John Vaughan

            Est: €8,000 - €10,000

            Thomas JEFFERSON 1743-1826 Lettre autographe signée à John Vaughan Précieuse lettre de Thomas Jefferson à John Vaughan, ayant appartenu à Alfred de Vigny. L''ancien président des États-Unis, retiré dans sa propriété de Monticello, en Virginie, tente d''aider un fils de Caspar Wistar à être admis comme aspirant dans la marine de guerre. Cette lettre fait suite à celle que Jefferson envoya à Vaughan quelques jours plus tôt, sur le même sujet : «Since my letter of the 10th I have learnt that a new regulation has been adopted in the Navy department, by which no person can recieve a midshipman''s warrant unless they have been on some actual service at sea 6 months at least. […] Mr Wistar will therefore have to go thro'' this noviciate before his application will be recieved». Thomas Jefferson donne ensuite des nouvelles de sa santé : «I write under the pain of a recently fractured arm, which happened the 2d day after I had written to you. It is the Radius of the left arm a little above the small bones of the wrist, and is doing well». John Vaughan (1756-1841), marchand de vin d''origine anglaise, émigra à Philadelphie en 1782. Membre de l''American Philosophical Society dès 1784, il en devint successivement trésorier (1791) et bibliothécaire (1803), fonctions qu''il occupa jusqu''à sa mort, notamment durant les nombreuses années pendant lesquelles Thomas Jefferson présida ce célèbre cercle de réflexion. La majorité des papiers de John Vaughan sont aujourd''hui conservés par l''American Philosophical Society. Cette lettre, dont une minute est conservée à la Bibliothèque du Congrès, n''a, semble-t-il, jamais été publiée. Manque marginal dû au décachetage et trois déchirures marginales, sans atteinte au texte. Quelques rousseurs. [On joint :] Jean HERVÉ. 1804-vers 1860. Lettre autographe signée à Alfred de Vigny. Le Mans, 7 octobre 1838. 1 p. in-8 et suscription. Cette lettre accompagnait la précédente : «Je vous envoie un Specimen de poésies américaines et un drame ; j''y joins un autographe de Th. Jefferson […]». Ouvrier typographe, Jean Hervé s''installa aux États-Unis où il enseigna la littérature et la philosophie de 1827 à 1837 environ, notamment à Philadelphie. On peut penser qu''il y connut John Vaughan et se fit remettre la lettre de Jefferson qu''il offrit ensuite au poète.

            Thomas JEFFERSON 1743-1826 Lettre autographe signée à John Vaughan

            Est: €8,000 - €10,000

            Thomas JEFFERSON 1743-1826 Lettre autographe signée à John Vaughan Monticello, 20 novembre 1822. Une demi-page in-4 (25 x 19,8 cm) et suscription. Lettre de Thomas Jefferson à John Vaughan. L''ancien président des États-Unis, retiré dans sa propriété de Monticello, tente d''aider un fils de Caspar Wistar à être admis comme aspirant dans la marine de guerre. Cette lettre fait suite à celle que Jefferson envoya à Vaughan quelques jours plus tôt, sur le même sujet : "Since my letter of the 10th I have learnt that a new regulation has been adopted in the Navy department, by which no person can recieve a midshipman''s warrant unless they have been on some actual service at sea 6 months at least. […] Mr Wistar will therefore have to go thro'' this noviciate before his application will be recieved". Thomas Jefferson donne ensuite des nouvelles de sa santé : "I write under the pain of a recently fractured arm, which happened the 2d day after I had written to you. It is the Radius of the left arm a little above the small bones of the wrist, and is doing well". John Vaughan (1756-1841), marchand de vin d''origine anglaise, émigra à Philadelphie en 1782. Membre de l''American Philosophical Society dès 1784, il en devint successivement trésorier (1791) et bibliothécaire (1803), fonctions qu''il occupa jusqu''à sa mort, notamment durant les nombreuses années pendant lesquelles Thomas Jefferson présida ce célèbre cercle de réflexion. La majorité des papiers de John Vaughan sont aujourd''hui conservés par l''American Philosophical Society. Cette lettre de Thomas Jefferson dont l''existence est méconnue, n''a, semble-t-il, jamais été publiée. Manque marginal dû au décachetage et trois déchirures marginales, sans atteinte au texte. Quelques rousseurs. [On joint :] Jean HERVÉ. 1804-vers 1860. Lettre autographe signée à Alfred de Vigny. Le Mans, 7 octobre 1838. Une p. in-8 (20,5 x 13 cm) et suscription. C''est cette lettre qui donne la clef de la présence de celle de Thomas Jefferson dans les papiers de Vigny : "Je vous envoie un Specimen de poésies américaines et un drame ; j''y joins un autographe de Th. Jefferson […]". Ouvrier typographe, Jean Hervé s''installa aux États-Unis où il enseigna la littérature et la philosophie de 1827 à 1837 environ, notamment à Philadelphie. On peut penser qu''il y connut John Vaughan et se fit remettre par lui une lettre de Jefferson pour l''offrir à Alfred de Vigny, à moins que le poète lui ait demandé expressément de lui en procurer un. Une minute de cette lettre est conservée à la Bibliothèque du Congrès. Provenance : Archives Sangnier (cachets) Bibliographie : Alfred de Vigny, Correspondance, 38-86.

            (ESTATE OF JOHN NIXON) Thomas Willing (1731-1821)

            Est: $600 - $800

            (ESTATE OF JOHN NIXON) Thomas Willing (1731-1821) was an American merchant, a Delegate to the Continental Congress from Pennsylvania and the first president of the First National Bank of the United States, engaged in mercantile pursuits, in partnership with Robert Morris, until 1793. As a member of the Continental Congress in 1775 and 1776, he voted against the Declaration of Independence. Later, however, he subscribed £5,000 to supply the revolutionary cause. After the war, he became president of the Bank of North America (1781–91), preceding John Nixon, and then the first president of the Bank of the United States from 1791 to 1807. In August, 1807, he suffered a slight stroke, and he resigned for health reasons as president of the bank in November, 1807. Letter signed, Phila., 1815, sent to Sarah Nixon Cramond (1774 - 1865) daughter of John Nixon. Also signed by Henry Nixon (1776-1840), he was the son of John Nixon. Both Willing and Henry Nixon sign as Executors of the Estate of John Nixon. John Nixon was born the son of Sarah Bowles and Richard Nixon, a prominent Philadelphia shipping merchant and owner of Nixon's Wharf on the Delaware River. After being educated in the business rather than in a formal school setting, Nixon inherited his father's shipping and mercantile business in 1749. He soon became involved in public affairs, chosen a lieutenant of the Dock Ward Company in 1756, a warden of the port in 1766, one of the signers of paper money issued by Pennsylvania in 1767, and a manager of Pennsylvania Hospital, 1768-1772. In 1765 he married Elizabeth Davis; together they had five children. During early conflicts with the mother country, Nixon was an ardent proponent of the colonies. He signed the Non-Importation Agreement in 1765 and actively opposed the Stamp Act. When the Revolutionary War began, he joined the Committee of Safety, often acting as its chairman. As a Lieutenant-Colonel in the Third Battalion of Associators (a unit comprised of wealthy "Silk Stockings"), saw military action at the Battles of Trenton and Princeton. He commanded the defenses of the Delaware at Fort Island and the Philadelphia city guard. Nixon, however, is best known as the first person to publicly read the Declaration of Independence, which he did from the steps of the State House on July 8, 1776. On Monday, July 8, the Declaration of Independence was "proclaimed" (read aloud) by Col. John Nixon of the Philadelphia Committee of Safety at the State House in Philadelphia. It was also read again that evening before the militia on the Commons. Throughout the city, bells were rung all day. On that day as well the Declaration was publicly read in Easton, Pennsylvania, and Trenton, New Jersey. It was these first public readings which constituted America's first celebrations of the Fourth of July. In 1789 Nixon was one of the organizers and a director of the Bank of Pennsylvania, organized to supply the United States army with provisions and supplies. In 1784 he became a director of of the Bank of North America, the first national bank, serving as its president from 1792 until his death in 1808. Picture of Willing is NOT included here.
