Virginia 18th century bookcase on bureau attributed to the Frye-Martin school of Winchester. Walnut primary, yellow pine secondary. The upper case features a broken arch scroll pediment, carved floral rosettes, applied arch string tympanum molding, and arched stop-fluted quarter columns. The lower bureau features a pull out writing surface above four graduated drawers flanked by arch stop-fluted quarter columns, resting on ogee bracket feet. Hand forged iron door latch on the bookcase consists of an iron strap spring with a heart shaped terminus. Retains the original surface. For other examples of furniture from this school, refer to “The Furniture of Winchester, Virginia”, Wallace Gusler, American Furniture 1997 Edited by Luke Beckerdite, pp. 228-265. Various inscriptions on the writing surface include, “Harriet swallowed a fly this morning September 29, 1848”, “C. P. Bachardson Savannah Georgia”, “Holliday Baltimore Md December 1862”, “Given to Douglas Borum July 9th 1928 by his Mother”, “Douglas Borum”, “C.J. Borum 1902 Oct 1″ and various other illegible inscriptions. This is currently the only known bookcase on bureau form from the Frye-Martin group. 93 1/4″ H x 42″ W x 23” D. Provenance: The bookcase and bureau was given to Douglas Borum (1882-1945) of Southwestern Virginia by his mother, Caroline Borum (1852-1941), on July 9th, 1928 (detailed on the writing slide of the bookcase on bureau). Caroline Borum was married to Captain Calvin Monroe Borum (1842-1921). Caroline was the heir of her family home, Spengler Hall in Strasburg, Virginia. The Borums renamed the house ìMatin Hillî after the hill on which the home was built. The diary accompanying the bookcase and bureau was written during the Borum ownership from a period 1861-1869. Carolineís father was Samuel Kendrick (1802 – ?). Samuel purchased Spengler Hall from his first cousin Joseph Spengler, who inherited the home from his father, Anthony Spengler/Spangler, in 1834. Anthony Spangler (1774-1834) began building Spangler Hall around 1800. Spangler Hall is a large brick house directly off Route 11 in Strasburg, Shenandoah County, Virginia and is noted for its sophisticated interior woodwork. Note – this lot also contains a handwritten journal with the inscription “July 1861 Names of the Soldiers who have called at Matin Hill”. The next two pages list various Confederate soldiers from Virginia and Mississippi regiments. Also included in the journal are various songs and poems including a “Farewell to the Star Spangled Banner” dated July 6th, 1863.

140 Lot 140: East TN Presidential Presentation Harvest Jug East TN Presidential Presentation Harvest Jug Lot 140: East TN Presidential Presentation Harvest Jug

Important East Tennessee decorated Presidential presentation harvest jug. Harvest jug with extruded handle and two opposing spouts with two sine waves around the upper shoulder and an additional closed sine wave at the tip of the jar, resembling a sun motif. Possibly potted by Lewis Manning Haun (Greene County, TN, born 1835). Similar harvest jug forms attributed to L. M. Haun have are known. However, none of these jugs have retained the handle like this example. The inscription on one side reads “For President Gen. James A. Garfield of Ohio” and the other, “For Congress Hon. A. H. Pettibone of Green”. Additional inscriptions under each spout with “Garfield”and “Arthur”. 10 1/2″ H. Circa 1880. Historical note: James A. Garfield (1831-1881) was elected as President in the election of 1880 and Pettibone (1835-1918) was elected as a U.S. Congressman for East Tennessee the same year. This jug likely commemorates the 1880 national election. President Garfield’s presidency lasted only 200 days (March 4, 1881 – September 19, 1881) because he was assassinated by Charles J. Guiteau. Augustus Herman Pettibone enlisted as a private in the Union Army in 1861 and rose to the rank of Major in the 20th Wisconsin Volunteer Infantry Regiment. After the war, he practiced law in Greenville, Tennessee and served in various other judicial positions for the State of Tennessee. He was elected to Congress in 1880 where he served for six years, and subsequently served in the TN House of Representatives for two years. Pettibone died in 1905 in Nashville. Condition: Overall excellent condition with handle having a couple of old tight breaks. [See more photos →]

91 Lot 91: Mecklenburg NC Declaration of Independence Handbill Mecklenburg NC Declaration of Independence Handbill Lot 91: Mecklenburg NC Declaration of Independence Handbill

19th century printed handbill of the text of the so-called “Mecklenburg (N.C.) Declaration of Independence,” including its four resolutions and the names of its 27 signers. The text is framed by a decorative Classical style border and features a central cartouche of an eagle over an image of two men in a boat. 10″ x 8″, mounted to a cardboard backing. Mounted beneath is a late 19th century newspaper clipping that reads –“We have been permitted to see an old paper, in the hands of Mrs. Mary Hadley Clare, of this city, great granddaughter of one of the Alexanders who signed it – the Mecklenberg Declaration of Independence. This copy, a printed handbill, is the property of Mrs. Cynthia Davidson Donoho of Hartsville, Tenn., who is a granddaughter of Dr. Ephraim Brevard, the Secretary of the Mecklenberg meeting. Mrs. Donoho is very old and she remembers this copy as a treasured thing at quite an early age. It contains the names of all the signers… This paper was evidently, judging fom the paper, execution and typography, and the coat of arms, printed at an early day after 1800. There was no printed copy in existence before that…” — The article goes on to explain the significance of the Meckenberg Declaration, said to be the first Declaration of Independence from England made in the thirteen colonies. Note: In 1819, a document called the Mecklenburg Declaration of Independence was published, with the claim that it had been written on May 20, 1775 — more than a year before the U.S. Declaration of Independence was signed. But no earlier reference to that document has ever been found. Some historians believe the Mecklenburg Declaration is an inaccurate rendering of an authentic document known as the Mecklenburg Resolves (a set of resolutions passed on May 31, 1775, that fell short of an actual declaration of independence). Although published in newspapers in 1775, the text of the Mecklenburg Resolves was lost after the American Revolution and not rediscovered until 1838. Some historians believe the Mecklenburg Declaration was written in 1800 in an attempt to recreate the Mecklenburg Resolves from memory. According to this theory, the author of the Mecklenburg Declaration mistakenly believed that the Resolves had been a declaration of independence, so he recreated the Resolves with language borrowed from the United States Declaration of Independence. Defenders of the Mecklenburg Declaration have argued that both the Mecklenburg Declaration and the Mecklenburg Resolves are authentic. (Source: Learn NC (North Carolina Digital History, UNC-Chapel Hill). On various occasions throughout the 19th century, copies of the Mecklenburg Declaration were published in brochure or handbill form; this is believed to be one of those publications, probably circa 1830s. Additional provenance note: The newspaper article incorrectly states that Cynthia Donoho was the granddaughter of Dr. Ephraim Brevard; in fact, Cynthia Donoho, in whose family this piece descended, was Dr. Brevard’s neice. Condition: Discoloration, some faded areas and a small amount of foxing. Paper is glued to cardboard backing. [See more photos →]

Signed lower left corner. Titled outer right margin in pen: Lookout Battlefield. Unframed. 18" H x 22" W. Note: The Cravens house, built by iron merchant Robert Cravens, figured prominently in the Civil War Battle of Chattanooga. It was used by both Union and Confederate armies as an observation post and headquarters. On Nov. 23, 1863, Maj. General Carter Stevenson, CSA, signaled Gen. Bruxton Bragg from the house, indicating a possible Union attack on Lookout Mountain. The so-called Battle Above the Clouds was fought the next day on the plateau on which the Cravens' home stood, and the house itself was overtaken by the Union Army. Although the structure survived the battle with only minor damage, it was later destroyed by Union soldiers during a drunken brawl. The Cravens returned after the war and rebuilt the house, adding a third level. It was donated to the National Park in 1893. Artist biography: William Posey Silva was born in Savannah, Georgia, and spent his first fifty years of life successfully running his family's chinaware business. In 1887 he moved to Chattanooga, Tennessee, and began taking art instruction. He enrolled in the Academie Julian in Paris as a student of Jean Paul Laurens and also painted with American impressionist Chauncey Ryder. He had his first solo exhibition in 1909 at the Georges Petit Gallery in Paris. That same year he returned to Chattanooga and began winning American acclaim for his impressionistic paintings of picturesque subject matter including Chattanooga landscapes and the pine forests near Savannah. He won the silver medal at the 1910 Appalachian Exposition in Knoxville and had a solo exhibition at the Telfair Academy in Savannah in 1917. He moved to Washington DC and eventually to California in 1913. He was also a member of the California Art Club and the Salmagundi Club. Condition: Unframed.

56 Lot 56: T.D. Rice "Jim Crow" Silver Presentation Cup T.D. Rice "Jim Crow" Silver Presentation Cup Lot 56: T.D. Rice "Jim Crow" Silver Presentation Cup

George III sterling silver two handled cup and cover with gilded interior, London date marks for 1765, maker's mark IS or TS, engraved with 1837 inscription: Presented by The London Crow Club to T.D. Rice ( Thomas Dartmouth Rice ) Esq. The Original — This 26 of April 1837" along with several names, presumably club members, encircling the foot. A crest of a crow with motto "It is de caws" is engraved in the center. 11" H x 8 1/2" H. 28.075 ounces troy. Historical note: Thomas D. Rice (1808-1860), known as the Father of American Minstrels, was an American-born comedian, actor, and playwright. He became famous for his popular stage show in which he portrayed a fictional slave named Jim Crow – a name would become associated with racial segregation long after Rice's death. The character was first performed by Rice in Louisville, Kentucky in 1828. Rice toured both America and England to overflowing theaters, and his blackface song-and-dance act inspired numerous other blackface minstrel shows in the 19th and early 20th centuries. This cup was presented to Rice during his 1837 tour of the British Isles. It included a visit to London, where a "Jim Crow Club" had been formed, and the New York Spirit of the Times reported that at one of the luncheon sessions, Rice presented the membership with a large picture "of various portraits of the members of the Club, all representing crows, Jim Crow being in the center." Although Rice's shows would be considered offensive by present day audiences, they were performed for both black and white audiences. He also starred at Purdy's New National Theater on New York's Broadway in the title role in Uncle Tom's Cabin, a play based on Harriet Beecher Stowe's best-selling abolitionist novel. His performances brought in considerable sums of money, but Rice spent lavishly and died in poverty in 1860. Condition: Possible later decoration to cup, part of inscription "the original –" has been scratched out, some light waviness to edge of cover. [See more photos →]

80 Lot 80: General Benjamin Butler archive relating to confis General Benjamin Butler archive relating to confis Lot 80: General Benjamin Butler archive relating to confis

Significant Civil War era archive relating to the seizure of $60,000 gold from Samuel Smith & Co. of New Orleans in May of 1862 by Union General Benjamin Butler. Includes letters, document evidence, and excerpts from U.S. newspapers relating to the case brought by two New Orleans bankers to recover $60,000 in gold taken by force by General Butler and allegedly appropriated for his own use. Inventory of this archive includes – 12 letters from Judge Edward Pierrepoint (later Attorney General for President U.S. Grant) to Butler and/or Butler's attorney, John K. Hackett – 7 letters from Stanley, Langdell, and Brown (attorneys for Smith) – 3 letters related to attorney Hackett – 4 Newspaper articles on the case – 3 New Orleans bank checks written from Butler for a total of $30,226 – 21 court letters and letters to newspapers – a grouping of affidavits (approx 3) – a secretarial written letter by Butler on the Smith vs. Butler case – copy of letter to the War Department from Charles Frost with a statement of the President, Abraham Lincoln (secretarial signed)- an April 1865 letter from M. F. Bonzano of the New Orleans Mint – Dec 1864 anonymous letter signed "Union" discussing proof showing Smith to be a Confederate "rebel" – a 1865 letter from the War Department's Solicitor's office. In Summary, Samuel Smith accused General Butler of illegally seizing $60,000 in gold when Union forces occupied New Orleans in 1862. Various testimony and correspondence in this archive portrays Smith as a loyal Unionist. However, a letter dated March 1861 from Smith in New Orleans to F. H. Hatch in Montgomery, Alabama provides a startling revelation that is never mentioned in any of the newspapers or correspondence known. Smith writes to Hatch, "We have consulted with some of our leading Merchants and Capitalists in regard to taking a portion of it ($15 Million loan authorized by the Congress of the Confederacy) and probably a milllion…..If the Secr of the Treas. thinks proper to send us half a million, we would suggest that he send 400 Bonds of $1000 each and 200 of $500 each. We would have no objection to acting as Financial Agent for the Confederate States in this City, if the Secretary of the Treasury should desire us to do so…" How and when General Butler obtained this letter is unknown and why he did not divulge the contents of this letter in a public manner is also unknown. The letter may have been procured by the anonymous "Union" individual or by Bonzano and given to General Butler. Regardless, the letter serves to vindicate General Butler in seizing Smith's gold as contraband of the Confederacy. Provenance – descended through the family of Thomas E. Major, personal secretary to Benjamin F. Butler while he served as Governor of the State of Massachusetts. Condition: [See more photos →]

Robert Kennedy signed letter and photograph relating to the 1962 Civil Rights unrest when James Meredith was admitted as the first African American student at the University of Mississippi. In this eloquent letter, dated December 11, 1962, Kennedy is writing to U.S. Marshall Ernest Mike regarding Mike's injuries sustained at Oxford, Mississippi on September 30th and October 1st. ìI would like to express my gratitude to you for your performance at Oxford. You and your colleagues conducted yourselves with good judgement in the face of crisis, with restraint in the face of great provocation, and ó as your injury attests ñwith real courage in the face of great danger. You have made a great contribution to the attainment of equal rights for all our citizens and to the rule of law in our country. I want you to know I am deeply grateful..î . This lot also includes an autographed photo of Kennedy and original letter envelope. The hand signed photo of Robert Kennedy is inscribed: "To Marshal Ernie Mike With appreciation and best wishes Robert Kennedy." Note ñ The registration of James Meredith at the University of Mississippi was a watershed Civil Rights incident for President Kennedy and his administration in 1962, because it forced the administration to use the power of the military to enforce Civil Rights and to override Mississippiís governor, Ross Barnett, who blocked Meredithís efforts to enroll at Ole Miss. Attorney General Robert Kennedy called in federal marshals to escort Meredith on campus, but on the nights of September 30th and October 1st, the marshals, including Mike, were besieged by a crowd of thousands that turned violent in their protests. The ensuing riot resulted in 2 dead, 166 injured. 79 of the 127 Marshals Service personnel were injured. President Kennedy ordered 16,000 military policemen to restore peace on the Ole Miss campus. Mike's job did not end there. After his recovery from a knee injury, he returned to Oxford as one of the marshals who continued to escort Meredith to his classes long after the violence subsided. Attorney General Robert Kennedy emphasized the gravity of this incident, saying: îSo to hear these reports that were coming in to the President and to myself all last night ñ when the situation with the state police having deserted the situation, and these men standing up there with courage and ability and great bravery ñ that was a very moving period in my life.î Provenance: the estate of U.S. Marshall Ernest Mike of Kentucky. Condition: Letter and envelope in excellent condition with letter having two folds.

T Beauregard compliment card, and General Butler's personal 2-volume copy of "Military Operations of General Beauregard" by Alfred Roman. Document appears to be correspondence between General Beauregard and an unknown reporter discussing General Butler actions early during the war.

Beauregard describes how his wife was in "very bad health" and at the beginning of the war and was living with her family in New Orleans.

Signed and dated, Wildner 1990, lower left. Gray mat with hand-stenciled border. Sight: 12-1/4″ x 8″.

Sight: 7-5/8″ x 6-5/8″, Matted: 20″ x 16″. Provenance: Private Middle Tennessee collection; a personal gift to the consignor from the artist. Biography: Wildner was born in Germany but moved to Detroit with his family as a child and, as a teenager, to Nashville. He served in the Army in 1944 and went on to study art briefly at the Mienzinger Art School in Detroit. He returned to Nashville to practice commercial art, but by the mid-1950s had decided to pursue his own art career. Whimsical animals and fantastical, often grotesque creatures were a recurring theme of his work. Wildner met with critical and commercial success after a 1962 exhibit (at what is now known as Cheekwood Museum of Art). However, the death of his parents and collapse of his marriage in the 1970s led him to become reclusive in the last two decades of his life. Condition: 1st item: Some grime to mat. One tiny dark stain to upper left shoulder of gnome. 2nd item: Fold to left corner of mat, light grime to mat, scattered brown stains to left and lower right side of image. [See more photos →]

History (Courtesy of www.northpark.edu): The first attempt to collect works of Swedish-American artists was made ca. 1900 in Lindsborg, Kansas where an exhibition of their works was held at Bethany College with works of American artists. In 1905 a Swedish-American Art Association was formed in Chicago and held an exhibition which had limited success; the association soon folded. In 1911, however, the first annual exhibition of Swedish-American art was held at The Swedish Club of Chicago. In the first show 101 works by 24 artists and 3 sculptors were listed as being on display. Included were three artists who were to become well-known in the larger world of American art — John Carlson, Olaf Grafstrˆm, and Birger Sandzen.Fourteen exhibits were held between 1911 and 1926. Eight were held between 1927 and 1941. None were held during World War II (1942 through 1945). Exhibits were held annually in 1946, 1947, and 1948. In 1949 the exhibits were shown on a biannual basis through 1959. The last two exhibits, the 32nd and 33rd, were held in 1961 and 1964. Altogether thirty-three exhibits were held over a period of fifty-four years. Exhibitions came from across the country, but the core of artists were Chicagoans.
