The second of two "Meet the Beatles" albums, autographed by all four band members, from the estate of Dr. Jules Gordon and his direct heirs. Update – On 8/16/2011, Frank Caiazzo, world recognized Beatles autograph expert, inspected this album and verified its authenticity. A document of authenticity from Frank Caiazzo is included in the photographs and will be provided to the winning bidder in addition to an affidavit of authentication from the descendant. The first completely autographed "Meet the Beatles" album from the Gordon family sold in our May 22nd, 2011 auction (lot #281). This is the last remaining album from the Gordon family and is personally inscribed to Dr. Gordon by George Harrison. The inscription reads "To "Doc Gordon" thanks for the JABS from George Harrison" along with the signatures of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, and Ringo Starr. Original album and album cover. 12-1/4" H x 12-1/4" W. Provenance – The estate of Dr. Jules Gordon. This signed album was given to Dr. Gordon, who treated George Harrison for a sore throat the day before the Beatles American television debut on the Ed Sullivan Show. Thomas Buckley noted in the New York Times on Feb. 8, 1964: “Mr. Harrison, who is known as the quiet Beatle, awoke yesterday with a sore throat. He was treated by Dr. Jules Gordon, used a vaporizer and rejoined his colleagues at the studio late in the afternoon. ‘I should be perfect for tomorrow,’ he said.” According to George Harrison’s sister, Louise Caldwell, Harrison's health was more serious than reported. In "The Beatles Off The Record" by Keith Badman, Caldwell recalled: “The doctor said he couldn't do the Ed Sullivan Show because he had a temperature of 104. But they pumped him with everything. He was thinking about getting a nurse to administer the medicine, every hour on the hour. Then the doctor suddenly realized that I was there and was his sister and he said to me, ‘Would you see to it? It's probably just as well that you're here because I don't think there's a single female in the city that isn't crazy about the Beatles! You're probably the only one who could function around him normally.’” Dr. Jules Gordon of New York City was the house doctor at the Plaza Hotel from 1942 until 1985. This album, given to one of his family members, has been with the family ever since and has never before been offered for sale. Condition: Slight overall toning to cover. Wear to upper spine. Some scratching to the album itself. [See more photos →]

190 Lot 190: William Edmondson Limestone "Varmint" Sculpture William Edmondson Limestone "Varmint" Sculpture Lot 190: William Edmondson Limestone "Varmint" Sculpture

William Edmondson (Tennessee, c. 1884-1951) limestone "Varmint' sculpture of a small animal sitting alert on its back haunches with both front feet together, paws cast downward. 12-1/2" H x 5" W x 7 3/4" D. Provenance: purchased directly from the artist in the 1940s by the consignor's parents, Howard Chandler Jordon and Whitley Jarman Jordon Potter, who were friends and patrons of Edmondson. The consignor, who accompanied her mother on the visit to Edmondson's Nashville home to purchase this piece, remembers Edmondson distinctly telling her that the subject was a 'varmint.' A photo of the consignor as a child, at home with the sculpture, is included in this lot along with an affidavit certifying provenance, signed by the consignor. Artist information: William Edmondson was born in Davidson County, Tennessee, the son of freed slaves, and worked most of his life as a railroad employee and janitor. A spiritual experience at the age of 57 prompted him to begin sculpting limestone using a railroad spike as chisel, and he claimed divine inspiration for the works produced during his 17 year art career. Biblical figures, women, and animals were frequent subjects, although he also produced more utilitarian items such as tombstones and birdbaths. In 1937 Edmondson became the first African American to receive a solo exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art. He is regarded as one of the most important self-taught artists of the 20th century and his works are in several major museums. Condition: Overall excellent condition. [See more photos →]

ITEM 5: a large collection of letters, photocopies, and publications pertaining to the ship's crossing and career of Captain John Hudson, including the shoulder straps and gold braid from his Navy uniform. Provenance: Estate of A. Welling LaGrone, Jr., Nashville, Tenn. ABOUT THE FLAG: United States Navy vessels of the 19th Century, and even now, carried several flags based on the Stars and Stripes of the nation. The largest was the ensign, flown from the stern of the warship. The jack was flown from the bow flag staff only while the ship was in port, while the commission pennant was flown from the main mast in the era of sails or a high point in the age of steam. The flags varied in size based on the rating of the warship. These vessels also carried small boats called gigs, and these boats also were equipped with flags. Boat flags came into existence in the early 1850s and carried, at least based on that used by Commodore Matthew Perry on his voyage to Japan, 31 stars. In 1857, the number of stars was reduced to sixteen. Being smaller flags, the lower number of stars made them more visible at a distance. In 1862, the Navy Department further reduced the star count to thirteen. This may have been in homage to the flags of the Continental Navy of the Revolutionary War. From 1862 to 1865, the stars were arranged typically in three rows with four, five and four stars in each from top to bottom of the canton. The boat flag of the U.S.S. Flambeau/Red White & Blue is this star pattern. A boat flag with the same star pattern exists in the Zaricor Collection in California. After the Civil War, boat flags were changed to a three, two, three, two, three arrangement, again from top to bottom. According to noted flag historians Howard Madaus and David Martucci, these boat flags varied from five through ten feet on the fly with the hoist measuring about half of the length. The 1864 U.S. Navy flag regulations (basically revised from the 1854 regulations) listed ship ratings ten through fourteen as boat flags. Flags for the tenth rating measured 5.28 feet on the hoist by 10 feet on the fly. Eleventh rated ships carried boat flags of 4.20 feet on the hoist by 8 feet on the fly while twelfth rated ships carried boat flags of 3.70 by 7 feet. The thirteenth rated boat flags measured 3.20 feet by 6 feet and the fourteenth rates carried flags of 2.50 feet by 5 feet. The U.S.S. Flambeau boat flag measures 31 inches by 42 inches which corresponds to a fourteenth rated boat flag. The flag has been cut down in its fly length by at least 18 inches at some point after the Civil War when it became the flag of the S.S. Red White and Blue. This was probably due to the size of that boat being much smaller (only 2 tons) than the U.S.S. Flambeau. The flag is made from single ply wool bunting with the stripes and appliquéd stars being hand stitched. The cotton canvas hoist edge is marked on the reverse side, “U.S.S. Flambeau Picketboat, 2nd Cutter – 1864. Acting Ensign J. M. Hudson.” The second cutter marking probably indicates that the warship carried two gigs on board. The U.S.S. Flambeau was built in 1861 as a brigantine initially for the trade routes of China. She was acquired by the U.S. Navy in November of that year to augment their blockading fleet. Weighing 791 tons, she was 185 feet long by 30 feet wide. With her crew of 92 men, she carried between two and five guns during the war. Her career as a blockader was successful with four ships captured as prizes. The U.S.S. Flambeau was sold by the Navy in July 1865 after being decommissioned. As a merchant vessel, she was lost off North Carolina in March 1867. Acting Ensign J. M. Hudson left the Navy after the Civil War. He became the skipper of the S.S. Red White and Blue which became famous in nautical circles for the transiting of the Atlantic Ocean by such a small vessel. His old boat flag from the war was altered for the Red White and Blue, being marked on the obverse hoist edge, “Ship “Red White and Blue” of New York – 1866/2 tons – 35/100 Register/ to London and Paris Exposition 1867/ Captain J.M. Hudson.” – Flag catalog entry by Greg Biggs. Condition: ITEM 1: Flag survives in good condition with minor staining, some patches and fraying where flag attaches to hoist. The flag has been professionally conserved with a fine colored mesh attached for stabilization. Also, there are [See more photos →]

195 Lot 195: John Francis Murphy o/c, Tonalist Landscape John Francis Murphy o/c, Tonalist Landscape Lot 195: John Francis Murphy o/c, Tonalist Landscape

Large John Francis Murphy (American/New York, 1853-1921) oil on canvas painting titled “Where Sunlight Lingers,” depicting a meadow landscape at sunset. Signed and dated lower right “J. Francis Murphy, 1913”. Exhibited at the National Academy of Design in 1913, number 205. Housed in the original carved and gilded frame (more information below). Sight: 26-1/2″ H x 40-1/4″ W. Framed: 40-1/4″ H x 54-1/4″ W. Provenance: the estate of a New York collector, purchased from Macbeth Gallery, New York City (date unknown). Biography: John Francis Murphy, a leading tonalist landscape painter of the American Barbizon, was born 1853 in Oswego, New York. As a teen, he moved west with his family to Chicago, where he began painting billboards and theater backdrops. He received a few weeks of training at the Chicago Academy of Design, but was primarily self-taught. He found employment in New York as an illustrator, but was drawn to the countryside and began painting landscapes. A trip to France in 1886 deepened his familiarity with the work of the French Barbizon painters such as Corot, Rousseau and Duabigny. Murphy’s middle-period landscapes show the influence of American tonalists A. H. Wyant, George Inness, and Homer Dodge Martin. Murphy’s late paintings, created after 1900, are regarded as some of his best. “Where Sunlight Lingers,” which falls into his latter period, exhibits the tonal unity and warm but minimal palette of brown, soft greens and golden yellows for which he is known. Frame information – The frame on this painting is a carved and gilded American frame from the early 1900’s. The design is derived from the Louis XV style though interpreted through an American lens. The fine carving and rich, buttery quality of the gilded surface imply that the frame is from a Boston area maker such as Foster Brothers (frame description – courtesy Eli Wilner & Company Gallery Director, Suzanne Smeaton). Condition: Overall very good condition. Some slight overall craquelure to canvas. Blacklighting flouresces two small spots in left tree area but examination under natural light does not indicate inpainting to these spots. [See more photos →]

Single paneled door over a paneled base, all on turned feet. 101" H x 20 1/4" W x 13" D. 19th century. Provenance: from the collection of Grace Tankersley of Knoxville. An early 20th century note with the clock references a Pennsylvania history, however this is believed to refer to the works, since the case appears to be of Tennessee or Kentucky origin. During the early 1800s, when transportation of large objects was difficult, it was common for imported clockworks to be placed into locally made cases. There is also information describing how the clock descended through the family of G. W. McClain of Jackson, TN. Condition: The case was refinished and works restored in 1941. Small patch one inch above the key hole. The bonnet has had some restoration and all finials have been replaced. The dial is in good condition with minor paint loss and some craquelure.

69 Lot 69: War of 1812, Jackson and Benton signed document War of 1812, Jackson and Benton signed document Lot 69: War of 1812, Jackson and Benton signed document

Andrew Jackson and Thomas Hart Benton signed document from War of 1812. The document is an order authorizing the deputy quartermaster to make payment on "the (name illegible) account, Nashville, May 3, 1813," signed "Andrew Jackson". The document also notes receipt of the requested amount on May 6, 1813, and is signed "Thomas H. Fletcher" and "Thomas Hart Benton". This document relates to the abortive Natchez expedition of the Tennessee Militia. Governor Blount issued orders for the expedition to the Mississippi Territory in November 1812 under the leadership of Major Jackson. Jackson's troops arrived in Natchez in February 1813, only to be told by Secretary of War John Armstrong that their services were no longer needed. The force returned to Tennessee in late March 1813. It was during this return march that Jackson earned the nickname "Old Hickory" by walking the entire distance so sick soldiers could ride his horse. Thomas Hart Benton served as Jackson's aide-de-camp during the War of 1812, however, only four months after this document changed hands between the two men, Benton and Jackson would be involved on opposite sides of a duel that resulted in Jackson carrying a bullet in his body for decades. Eventually, Jackson was elected President, Benton a senator, and the two put aside the incident to become powerful political allies. 5" x 7 3/4". The document is framed along with a rare engraving of Jackson, "The last likeness of Andrew Jackson painted on ivory by John Wood Dodge and engraved on steel by M.L. Danforth, May 1843." 11 5/8" x 9 1/4", sight. Exhibited Cheekwood Museum of Art, "Nashville Collects", circa 1990. Condition: tear at top, scattered discoloration.

Early 20th century. Provenance: Estate of A. Welling LaGrone, Jr., Nashville, Tenn. About the Hortsmann flag: The Horstmann family, creators of the largest private manufacturer of military goods and regalia in the United States, had their roots in the German state of Hesse-Cassel. William H. Hortsmann followed in the family weaving business before becoming a soldier in the Napoleonic Wars after moving to France in 1805. With the final defeat of Napoleon in 1815, the German states that had been allied to France reverted to a more controlled economy and political system, hardly conducive to keeping Horstmann in Europe. Thus, in 1815, he sailed to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. With its booming textiles industry and large German population (the mis-named “Pennsylvania Dutch,” which was actually a derivative of “Deutsch” or German), Horstmann found fertile ground to establish a new enterprise. Initially being employed by a leading lace weaver, Horstmann, in 1817, was soon out on his own but cemented his relationship to his former employer, and the skilled German textiles workers in the city, by marrying his daughter. He listed his business as a “military store,” which offered items for the militia units of the city and state. As the business grew, other militia units from other states turned to Horstmann for their uniforms, caps, accouterments, swords, flags and much more. As the business continued to grow, Horstmann returned to Europe for machinery and textiles taking one of his sons, his eventual successors, with him. By 1845, Hortsmann retired turning his firm over to sons William J. and Sigmund. Philadelphia was crucial to the U.S. Army as it was the home of a major quartermaster depot as well as commissary depot. Accordingly, Horstmann Brothers, as the firm became known, went after military contracts to expand their militaria trade, winning a large number of them which would carry the firm from the Civil War through World War 2 (although by then their business with the military was waning). With the secession crisis of 1860-1861, Horstmann Brothers was still making much of its money selling to militia units in the North and South. The Southern end of the trade was dropped with the firing on Fort Sumter in April 1861, but Horstmann’s picked up more business by contracting with the Union Army for all types of military equipment. Within this they became one of the major flag makers of the era hiring hundreds of women to make thousands of flags. The firm made unit colors (National and regimental), cavalry standards and guidons, hospital flags and the large storm and garrison flags and a record of their U.S. government contracts can be found in the National Archives. This side of the business also continued into the late 19th and early 20th Century. The firm filed for bankruptcy in May 1947. They were followed in receivership by other private militaria makers, replaced as the U.S. military turned to itself to supply much of what it needed. Thus ended an important era in the history of American military equipage. This large flag, made of wool bunting, bears the marking, “Horstmann Philadelphia 12 ft long." The blue canton has 45 stars, which places the flag as being made after the admission of Utah (January 4, 1896 – star added on July 4, 1896) and before July 4, 1908 when another star was added for Oklahoma. The 12 foot length possibly makes this flag a post flag for the Spanish-American War, fought in 1898 in Cuba and the Philippines. The flag is also marked, “Geo Binney or Birney", likely a previous owner’s name. While the flag may not be in the finest condition, the Hortsmann marking, the symbol of the largest private militaria maker in American history, makes the banner a very attractive investment. –Catalog Entry by Greg Biggs.
