142 Lot 142: John Frederick Kensett Oil, Contentment Island John Frederick Kensett Oil, Contentment Island Lot 142: John Frederick Kensett Oil, Contentment Island

John Frederick Kensett (New York/Connecticut, 1816-1872), “Early Autumn,” oil on board Luminist landscape painting depicting sunrise or sunset over Contentment Island, site of Kensett’s studio, near Darien, Connecticut. Circa 1872. Unsigned. Titled verso, with 1960s-1970s exhibition labels for Wickersham Gallery, New York. Housed in a giltwood Hudson River School style frame. Sight – 13 1/2″ H x 17 3/8″ W. Framed – 20 1/8″ H x 24 1/8″ W. Note: Celebrated American Luminist painter John Frederick Kensett died in 1872, attempting to rescue the drowning wife of fellow artist Vincent Coyler. The following year, this work was included, along with many other works from his studio, in the Kensett Memorial Exhibition held at the National Academy of Design. It is illustrated on page 45 of the photographic album of the exhibit (refer to scan of photograph, upper left corner). This newly rediscovered Kensett painting will be included in the forthcoming John Frederick Kensett Catalogue Raisonne being prepared under the direction of Dr. John Driscoll. Provenance: The Estate of Dr. Benjamin H. Caldwell, Nashville, Tennessee, acquired from Orrin Wickersham June in the 1970s. Case is grateful to Dr. Janice Simon, the Josiah Meigs Distinguished Teaching Associate Professor of Art History at the Lamar Dodd School of Art, University of Georgia; guest curator and principal author of the 2001 exhibit and catalog “Images of Contentment: John Kensett and the Connecticut Shore,” for the following essay: In 1867, painter John Frederick Kensett (1816-1872), ordinarily a New York City resident, bought nine acres of Contentment Island from his friend, fellow painter Vincent Colyer. Composed of the three Fish Islands, five Crabb Islands, salt meadow and marsh lands of Long Island Sound at Darien, Connecticut, this property permitted Kensett to engage eye and mind, senses and feelings with one place over an extended period without the interference of tourists. Indeed, his contemporaries equated his Contentment Island paintings with subjective responses to nature “very near to his own door,” so that artist, nature, and “God’s abounding gifts” became poetically one. “Early Autumn’s” sunrise scene, with two thirds of the painting displaying an intense rainbow of colors from orange-red along the horizon to bright chrome yellow blending into cerulean and grayer blue with painterly wisps of clouds at the top, displays Kensett’s intense absorption with place, atmosphere, and spirit. Looking down and across the shadowed point of land populated with cedars and pines jutting into Long Island Sound, this scene recalls the exact coloring, size, and proportions of Sunrise Near Darien (oil on panel 14″ x 18″, University of Michigan Museum of Art), though the waters are on the opposite side of the canvas. Both canvases appear side by side in the upper left of the photograph of the Kensett Memorial Exhibition held in 1873 at the National Academy of Design. Both paintings, along with the dramatic sunsets and twilights Kensett recorded while living on Contentment Island, convey an artist engaged with the modernist sensibilities of Tonalism with its emphasis on suggestion over definition, poetry of color over niggling detail, deep feeling over topographies of place. With Early Autumn and other paintings of Contentment Island, Kensett approached the aesthetics of George Inness and John La Farge. Unfortunately, his unexpected death in December 1872 cut short his modernist experiment. PRE-APPROVAL IS REQUIRED TO BID ON THIS LOT. PLEASE CONTACT CASEANTIQUES, INC. AT THE KNOXVILLE GALLERY FOR DETAILS. 865-558-3033 or BID@CASEANTIQUES.COM. CONDITION: Overall good condition. Lower right quadrant has area of bloom in varnish; small pinprick indention near side; and three small gouges near bottom edge, largest 1/4″ L.

Biography (Courtesy of The Johnson Collection): Arkansas-born Carroll Cloar was known for incorporating nostalgic images from his Southern childhood, often merged with dreamlike motifs, into powerful magic realist scenes. Cloar graduated from Southwestern College (now Rhodes College) in Memphis, Tennessee, and went on to study at the Memphis Academy of Arts under the artist George Oberteuffer. In 1936, he moved to New York to attend the Art Students League. There, Cloar’s achievements earned him a McDowell fellowship which he used to travel across the American Southwest, West Coast and Mexico. Cloar served with the Army Air Corps during World War II and was deployed to Saipan and Iwo Jima. Upon his return from the war, he was awarded a Guggenheim traveling scholarship to fund an extended sojourn to Central and South America in 1946. Two years later, several of his images were featured in a Life Magazine article titled Backwoods Boyhood, and Cloar’s career went on to receive additional national acclaim. By the mid 1950s, Cloar had settled permanently in Memphis, where he produced paintings, often executed in casein tempera and acrylic paints. His works are in the collections of the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Museum of Modern Art, Brooks Museum of Art, and Library of Congress. In 1993, Cloar’s painting, Faculty and Honor Students, Lewis Schoolhouse, was one of six paintings by American artists selected to commemorate the inauguration of President Clinton.

She died the next year, but Earl moved into the Hermitage and would from then on remain in Jackson’s circle, accompanying the newly elected president to Washington. During the next eight years, Earl turned out numerous paintings of Jackson.

See the link to this pitcher at: http://northeastauctions.com/product/thomas-jefferson-and-american-eagle-english-creamware-black-transfer-printed-jug-probably-staffordshire-circa-1801-08/. Biography: Born and raised in New York, John Vanderlyn was known as a painter of portraits and landscapes. He studied art in Paris twice, in 1796-1800 and again in 1803-1804 (during the time Jefferson served as President) before traveling to Italy. He had training in Neo-Classicism as espoused by Jacques-Louis David and Jean-Auguste Ingres. It was a style of “strong line, especially in the molding of figures, somber coloration, and an adherence to antique and mythological subjects or poses.” (sources: Zellman 81; Askart). The practice of painting portraits of important figures of the day from other sources (often oil portraits or even engraved prints from oils) was common in the Federal era. In fact, Vanderlyn’s later oil portrait of Andrew Jackson would become the basis for a number of paintings and prints done “after” his work. The Jefferson Papers connect Jefferson and Vanderlyn with a notation of a purchase of a pair of prints by the President from Vanderlyn on 31 December, 1805, however, those are believed to have been landscapes. CONDITION: Portrait: in need of conservation. Scattered foxing and discoloration; insect damage along upper border area. 3/8″ tear upper left in background. 7/16″ L paper loss with hole on subject’s jacket below a 7/8″ L white abrasion.

451 Lot 451: John J. Audubon Trumpeter Swan, Havell ed. John J. Audubon Trumpeter Swan, Havell ed. Lot 451: John J. Audubon Trumpeter Swan, Havell ed.

John J. Audubon Havell Edition aquatint etching, TRUMPETER SWAN (YOUNG) – CYGNUS BUCCINATOR, plate CCCLXXVI . Printed lower right margin: Engraved, Printed and Coloured by R. Havell 1837. (Published 1838). Titled center margin and printed lower left margin: Drawn from Nature by J.J. Audubon. F.R.S. F.L.S. Watermarked J. Whatman 1838. Intaglio and watercolor on paper. Image – 22-7/8î H x 34-3/4î W. Sheet – 26-5/8î H x 40î W. Sight – 24 1/2″ H x 37″ W. Framed – 40″ H x 52 1/2″ W. Provenance: The estate of John Donnelly, Nashville, Tennessee. Note: In about 1820, John James Audubon declared an ambitious intent to paint every bird in North America and to fund it by selling groups of printed plates of his paintings to subscribers. He insisted on the bookís large format — printed on the largest handmade sheets available at that time — in order to portray the birds in their actual size and natural habitat. The result was the ornithological masterpiece, THE BIRDS OF AMERICA, Havell Edition, published periodically 1826-1838. There were 435 different prints of 497 bird species and an estimated 180 complete sets were produced; today about 110 (some sources say 120) remain intact as bound book volumes owned by museums, institutions and private individuals. – source: The Audubon Price Guide by Ron Flynn. CONDITION: Conserved in 2014, refer to scan of conservator’s report. Note: While conservation did much to stabilize the print by removing the dangerous tape adhesive and acid burning and minimize tears, the loss of original color (particularly to the swanís head) and margin chipping remain condition issues on this print. The decision was made to not recolor the faded areas, in order to maintain the historical integrity of the piece. [See more photos →]

194 Lot 194: Signed & Dated Evansville, Indiana Temperance Snake Jug Signed & Dated Evansville, Indiana Temperance Snake Jug Lot 194: Signed & Dated Evansville, Indiana Temperance Snake Jug

Temperance jug, with thin brown glaze over light colored clay. Jug is incised to give the appearance of bark. Four dark brown animal forms are applied to the jug. The largest is a monkey which serves as a handle. A lizard, snake, and turtle are neatly placed on the other side facing the monkey. A large “B” and “1885” are incised vertically between the monkey and the lizard. “Bray” and “1885” are incised on the glaze covered bottom. 7 3/4″ high. The jug is attributed to Simeon Lewis Bray (1849-1914). He was born in Massachusetts, however, before he was a year old, the family was in Wisconsin, where they remained through 1855. By the 1860 census, they were in Anna, Union County, Illinois. This lot also includes 9 homemade seaweed calling cards. One has Maria H. Bray, Thatcher’s Island, Rockport, Mass on the back. Description, history and biography (Courtesy of Carole Wahler): The Kirkpatrick family established the Anna Pottery in 1859. Simeon’s occupation was listed as Turner in pottery and he was living 12 households from Wallace Kirkpatrick in 1870. Wallace was producing his now famous snake jugs during the 1870s and 1880s. These jugs reflected his interests in the temperance movement and wildlife, especially snakes, which he collected. Simeon married in 1876 in Evansville, Indiana and remained in the area until at least 1901 when he registered his second patent related to pottery production. By 1910 he was located in St. Louis City, Missouri still working as a potter. Simeon died there in 1914 but was buried in Evansville. He had two younger brothers, James W. and William F., who were also potters. Initially, it was theorized that James W. was the maker of this jug. Support for this notion was drawn from the 1880 Metropolis, Massac County, Illinois census where his occupation was listed as Clay Artist. At the time, he was working at a pottery which was originally established by John Kirkpatrick and one of his brothers-in-law. More support for the attribution resulted from discovering the existence of a temperance snake jug signed by J. W. Bray. Another very similar jug incised 1886 is attributed to him. However, the timely listing of a temperance jug by Schmidt’s Antiques in Michigan persuaded us of the error of our thinking (see https://www.liveauctioneers.com/item/52092487_stoneware-temperance-snake-jug). The Schmidt jug is of similar size, clay color, glaze and decoration. It is overall qualitatively very similar and incised S L B and 1885 on the bottom. It provides the greatest support for the Simeon Lewis Bray attribution. The two J. W. Bray jugs are visually quite different from the two Bray 1885 jugs; and both the J. W. Bray jugs and the Bray 1885 jugs are different from Wallace Kirkpatrick’s realistic snake jugs. The Bray jugs have more of a folk art quality to them. An unsuccessful attempt was made to connect the Bray families that are associated with the seaweed calling cards to Simeon’s family. No guesses were formed as to how they came to be with the jug. Maria’s husband’s family and her mother’s Bray side of the family were in the United States long before Simeon’s family arrived. Maria was a remarkable woman and an enthusiastic supporter of the temperance movement (see http://www.nelights.com/blog/tag/maria-bray/). IMPORTANT UPDATE: Simeon Bray was in Huntingburg, Indiana at least during the early months of 1885 according to information provided by Brian Moore of Indianapolis. Additional communication with him suggests it may be more difficult to discriminate between pottery made by JWB and SLB than originally thought. Research continues. cw CONDITION: Overall excellent condition. [See more photos →]

Early Andrew Jackson signed letter to Richard K. Call (ALS), protege and former military aide to Jackson during the War of 1812, later Governor of Florida Territory.

J., middle right of third page. The letter refers primarily to Call’s romantic relationship with his future wife Mary Letitia Kirkman, Nashville, TN, despite the fact that her parents were enemies of Jackson and deeply opposed the union. The postscript refers to Jackson’s approval of John C. Calhoun’s, Secretary of War, proposal for what would become the Reduction Act, passed by Congress March 2, 1821, as well as his opinions on the Missouri Compromise controversy, stating “The house of Representatives has rejected Misouri [sic], the Senate has admitted it, [John Henry] Eaton, (United States Senator from Tennessee and friend of Jackson’s), has done himself musch credit by an amendment which is said produced the admission by the Senate Should the house reconsider its vote Misouri [sic] will I expect sequester the property of the U.S. and hold it for their own use, untill [sic] it is invited into the Union by Congress, this is the only course she can adopt as an independant [sic] State, unless she returns to her Teritorial [sic] government, this would be a course too humble for a free people to submit to…”.

Block front lower case with four graduated, dovetailed drawers with original brass batwing pulls and escutcheons, drawer sides with lip molding, on abbreviated cabriole legs with claw and ball feet. A second set of three ball-shaped finials is included. 96" H including flame finials x 44" W at base x 22-1/2" D to front block. Boston area, late 18th century and later components. Provenance: The estate of Dr. Benjamin H. Caldwell, Nashville, Tennessee. Illustrated and briefly discussed in the article on the Caldwells' home published in The Magazine Antiques, Sept. 1971, p. 438. Note: Staining to top of desk section suggests top and base may be associated. Modifications appear to have been made, likely in the early 20th century, changing the lower section from a straight front desk to a blockfront desk. Dr. Caldwell corresponded with both Winterthur and Israel Sack, Inc. regarding this piece in 1965. Winterthur responded in part: "Mr. Sweeney (John A. H. Sweeney) has asked me to reply to your letter concerning your block-front secretary. He believes that it is entirely possible for your secretary to be of eighteenth-century origin. Gluing on the blocking was not uncommon. As you observe on your desk, it was always carefully done." Albert M. Sack responded in part:"The only answer I can give you from your description is that Boston was a center for rebuilding blockfronts from straight fronts 30 to 40 years ago and applying blocks. I have seen a few Connecticut pieces with blocks applied but can't recall seeing a Massachusetts example but there is no reason why it could not have been done. I would say that if the ball & claw feet are original with the blocking conforming to the contour of the front, it would make it a hard piece to convert." CONDITION: Top and base most likely associated. Modifications appear to have been made in the early 20th century, changing the lower section from a straight front desk to a blockfront desk. Bookcase extended in depth by 1/2 inch and desk extended in depth by 1-3/4 inch. Ball and claw feet are likely later than the period. Doors on top case appear to be modified. Repaired break to pediment and central plinth across frieze. Two replaced slats on the bonnet top. Some age cracks to drop front lid, longest 33-1/2" L located 1" from bottom edge.

His first letter addressed from Fort Pickering, incorrectly identified as Fort Pickens by Rogers, Shelby County, TN, March 11, 1862 refers to the recent Battle of Pea Ridge, also known as the Battle of Elkhorn Tavern, stating: I heard very bad news this evening Generals [Benjamin] McCulloch and [James McQueen] McIntosh were both killed and General [Sterling] Price wounded in his arm…the Battle was fought in Benton County Arkansas. We also had a fight on the Potomac in which our side worsted [sic] them a gooddeal… Rogers also alludes to the involvement of African Americans in the Battle of Island Number Ten, writing: They are taking negroes by hundreds up to Isleland [sic] no 10 to fortify it…. In a letter written from a camp near Columbus, MS, March 13, 1863, Rogers states: We have taken two of the Feds gun boats the [USS] Queen of the West & the [USS] Indianola. General [Earl Van Dorn] had a fight not long ago not far from Franklin in Tennessee & taken 2200 of them prisoner…. Days later, still stationed at a camp near Columbus, MS, March 26, 1863, Rogers writes: We got a dispatch yesterday evening stating that the Feds under took to pass Vicsburg [sic] yesterday morning and our guns sunk on of the Gun Boats & cripled another very bad so they had to succum [sic]. They had fights at Port Hudson about two weeks back. One of the Yanks boats got burned up &one other that was shot all to pieces it had to fall back. Loss on our side was nothing at all. They took 37 men prisoners. They also had a fight at Fort Pemberton about the same time. We were successful there two [sic]. They had to skedadle with their Gun Boats there two [sic]…. Rogers continues, offering his criticism of the Capture of New Orleans by the Union, stating: If our men had been as resolute last spring as they are now the Feds never would have got New Orleans. But old [Mansfield Lovell] give up the place without ever firing a gun I just as much believe that if he had stood his ground [we] would have had New Orleans in our posession now just as much as I believe anything…. Writing from Fort Pillow, TN, April 10, 1862, two years before the The Battle of Fort Pillow, also known as the Fort Pillow massacre, April 12, 1864, Rogers states: The Yankees have taken (Isleland) [sic] no (Ten) and we are looking for them every hour. I suppose that our men gave the Yankees thunder at Corrinth [sic] the other day…Two thousand Arkansas troops landed hear [sic] yesterday. Capt. Barnets Company are hear [sic]…I have just saw some men from Isleland [sic] Ten. They say that the Yankees have taken all the rest of them north. I suppose they are about one hundred of them that mad[e] there escape that landed a few minutes ago. All of our Gun Boats are hear [sic]. They are not worth anything but to run So soon as they Gun Boats pass Isleland [sic] No 10 they brok[e] for this place. One of [Lincoln's] Gun Boats are worth fifty of these that are hear [sic]. We are looking for fifteen thousand more men hear [sic] in a few days. I do not care how soon….. Another letter from Fort Pillow, April 26, 1862, Rogers discusses the positions of the Union Army on the river near the fort, writing: The Yankees stay behind aboard in the river and we can not tell the effect of our shells. But it appears that they are afraid to come around so that we can see them. Two of their men deserted and hailed one of our boats the other day They say when they came down they brought twenty thousand men with them. and [sic] (aimed) to storms [sic] us but they found out they could not do it and they have sent their men up Tennessee River. They say that they have nine (Mosler) Boats and eight gun boats and forty transport boats and about nine hundred men besides them that was on the boats. From what I can learn they expect a big fight at Corrinth soon…They commenced fighting at Fort Jackson the same day that the Yankees made there [sic] appearance at this place. Henry Berk landed hear yesterday he said the telegraph to Memphis (that) the Yankees had taken Fort Jackson but I dont [sic] believe it…… In the same letter, Rogers also discusses the health, welfare, and morale of his company, stating: There is a good deal of sickness in the camps. There are about forty sick in our Company at this time. But there has been no deaths in our Company. Some has the measels some the diarhera [sic]. Some bad colds and one case of slow fever…One of our men got his leg shot off ther [sic] day. He is doing very well I think he will get well. His name is Brown. Another man got his left arm shot off and his right arm broke. I do not know what Company he belonged….. In a letter written from Corinth, MS, May 3, 1862, Rogers mentions that despite illness in the camp: We are in high spirits hear [sic] in war matters. We think that we will be able to whip them out at this place, regardless of the fact that: We have not got any guns assigned us yet. I am afraid that the fight will come off before we can get our guns. If it does we intend to go in the battlefield and get guns as they are dropped and fight any how.

168 Lot 168: Portrait of Thomas Helm, KY Portrait of Thomas Helm, KY Lot 168: Portrait of Thomas Helm, KY

Unsigned but attributed to Joseph Henry Bush (Kentucky/Natchez, 1794-1865) or possibly Washington Bogart Cooper (Tennessee, 1802-1888).

Artist Joseph Henry Bush was born in Mercer County Kentucky and grew up in Frankfort, Kentucky. He studied with Thomas Sully in Philadelphia but returned to settle in Louisville by 1819. He also worked in Cincinnati, New Orleans and Natchez. In the book "Lessons in Likeness: Portrait Painters in Kentucky and the Ohio River Valley, 1802-1920," The Kentucky art critic and author Estill Curtis Pennington notes that in the 1850s, Bush's portraits began to exhibit more realism than his earlier ones, and were often oval in format. Jonesboro, Tennessee-born Washington Cooper also is said to have studied briefly in Philadelphia with Thomas Sully (as well as Henry Inman). Washington Cooper moved to Nashville in about 1833. Cooper and his brother, William, who was also artist, eventually became Tennessee's most prolific portrait painters of the mid to late 19th century. Washington Cooper painted a series of portraits of the Governors of Tennessee, as well as many prominent private Southern citizens. CONDITION: Painting in good condition.

American, mid 20th century. Provenance: The estate of Dr. Benjamin H. Caldwell, Nashville, Tennessee. Biography (courtesy Askart: The Artists' Bluebook): Bill Sawyer, son of Mr. and Mrs. William R. Sawyer, was born in 1936 and was a self-taught artist. He graduated from Hillsboro High School, North Carolina, in 1954 and then took up painting "just to kill 30 months in France" while in the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. His first exhibition was in Nashville in May of 1959. Subsequently, he had one-man shows at Daniel Orr's Gallery in San Diego, the Little Gallery in Memphis, TN, and the Parthenon in Nashville. Joseph Patterson, then the president of the American Association of Museums, arranged for a show of Sawyer's work at the Durlacher Brothers Gallery in New York in 1964. A second show there, in 1966, sold out. Sawyer was the first untrained artist to have a one-man show at Durlacher's. His work went on to be represented at the Fine Arts Center at Cheekwood in Nashville and in many private collections. Shortly after this time Sawyer traveled overseas, and after his trip Sawyer went through a transformation and vowed never to paint again. CONDITION: 1 1/2" scratch upper center. 1/2" stain upper right corner. [See more photos →]

775 Lot 775: 3 GA Reconstruction Broadsides, inc. KKK 3 GA Reconstruction Broadsides, inc. KKK Lot 775: 3 GA Reconstruction Broadsides, inc. KKK

Three (3) Georgia Reconstruction era single sided broadsides. 1st item: 1874 Anti- Ku Klux Klan broadside, published by Sarah E. Carter of Fort Valley, Georgia, originally of New Jersey, recounting the attack on her by members of the Ku Klux Klan in Montezuma, Georgia. In an account written in both the first and third person, she describes a horrific attack in which she is taken from her home, stripped of her clothes and whipped, struck in her face "so hard as to drive one of her teeth out of the upper jaw", with "pistols cocked on her". She was about to be left alone when "one of the klan took compassion on her by helping her up to a colored man's house near by." Carter, a widow who says she sold patent medicine and "practiced medicine among her sex" to earn a living, continues, "since my whipping, one of the Ku Klux, a colored man the six whites used as a decoy, has been scared by the rest of his race to give himself up, and tell all he knows." She goes on to name her attackers, and recount her extensive (and ultimately unsuccessful) efforts at the local, state and federal level to have them arrested. When an arrest warrant was finally issued, Carter says, "instead of the dispatch being sent to Atlanta it was sent to Montezuma and for the Klan to hide out, and they have been hiding out ever since." She adds that lawyers "refused to take my case because I am a Northern woman and wish to get my rights against southern Ku Klux," and closes by asking "in the name of all that's good, if Northern citizens found in Georgia cannot get their rights, and be potected in person and property, for I learn not one in this whole State, by the State or Federal Courts, has yet been convicted of whipping, shooting, or murdering people of northern birth since the war." 13 1/2" H x 8" W. 2nd item: TO THE VOTERS OF LEE, DOUGHTERTY & WORTH. Circa 1872 Republican Broadside urging support for Hon. Joseph Armstrong, Independent Democratic Candidate for state senator. Armstrong's name surfaced after Col. Carey Styles was named the Democratic nominee. (Styles was founder of the Albany, GA News and part owner of the Atlanta Constitution Newspaper). This move infuriated Republicans, who had agreed not to contest the Senatorship "provided the Democrats selected a candidate unobjectionable to the Republicans". Allegations against Styles include that [he] is "he most objectionable man in the district" and that he "relies on the probability of the non-payment of the Poll Tax by colored people" to win. 12" H x 9" W. 3rd item: PROCEEDINGS OF THE REPUBLICAN CONVENTION OF THE 10TH SENATORIAL DISTRICT HELD AT ALBANY, GEORGIA FEB. 20 1872.

His uncles taught him draughtsmanship and engraving in New York City, allowing him to join the family business. This move to New York proved pivotal for Whitaker. In New York, artists Alexander Wyant and George Inness noticed his talent. Through their influence, Whitaker went to study art in France at the Julian Academy under the artist De Paal. While in France, Whitaker was influenced by the Barbizon School of Art, which focused on rural subjects and darker palettes, a trend which remained evident in his art. Returning from France to Providence, RI, Whitaker recognized the need to nurture art in Providence. In 1880 along with E.M. Bannister and Charles Walter Stetson, Whitaker founded the Providence Art Club. He also became the first oil painting teacher at the Rhode Island School of Design (1882-1885), bringing his knowledge of European art to the artists of the city. Whitaker also continued to produce paintings of the nature around him, keeping the dark tonality of his earlier work. CONDITION: Overall good condition.

Helen Keller (1880-1968) typewritten letter, signed. The 3-page letter with pencil signature, dated 1923 from Long Island, written in response to a letter from "Miss Bose" in India. In it, Keller discusses her views of Christianity, faith and World War I. "I am an optimist by temperament – not quite so confident, perhaps, as I was before the Great War unmasked the hatred and chaos upon which the Western world had built its house of life. But I still live in the faith that this life is a school, the seemingly harsh discipline of which will be made clear to us in God's own time. Such a faith makes life worth living, and gives one encouragement to struggle on, though the way is often dark." Keller also makes reference to "Your great poet Tagore," and expresses admiration for "the courage with which you and other Indian women have broken away from hampering conditions" and says she is "delighted to hear that there is a school for the blind in Kulpahar." Keller closes with a reference to Anne Sullivan: "My teacher commands me to convey to you her warm appreciation of your beautiful tribute to her." Keller was stricken blind and deaf by illness at the age of two, but with the help of Sullivan learned to read and write. She became the first blind and deaf person to earn a bachelor's degree, and gained fame as a humanitarian and writer. Lot includes Keller related clippings/ephemera and a postcard of Keller's home in Tuscumbia, Alabama. CONDITION: Light toning and scattered spotting, couple of small blue ink stains, old paper clip rust residue upper corner of first and last page. [See more photos →]

Large archive of drawings and notes by the noted Civil War illustration artist Alfred Waud (1828-1891). Includes several sketches of people in period dress ranging from the 1600s-late 1800s, architectural drawings, Native American people and objects, Mexican places and artifacts, etc. There are 4 pen and ink drawings but the majority are rendered in pencil. Many seem to relate to a trip West (in 1886, Waud toured the Mississippi River Valley and the Dakota Territory). Some are captioned, including a floorplan titled Palace at Palenque, Iron Works at Pilot Knob (Ironton, Missouri), Canal Boats, etc. A couple are signed ARW, but most are unsigned. There are several notes referring to colonial missionary to the Indians, David Brainerd, suggesting Waud may have been planning to illustrate a book about him. Another scrap of paper refers to Harper's Weekly (Waud's employer) and is dated 1866. More than 50 illustrations total, ranging from 2" x 2" to 10" x 11". Circa 1866-1882. Provenance: The estate of Dr. Benjamin H. Caldwell, Nashville, Tennessee. Biography (Courtesy of John M. Cunningham): Alfred Waud was a British-born American artist and illustrator whose detailed sketches of scenes from the Civil War, which he covered as a press correspondent New York Illustrated News, captured the warís dramatic intensity and furnished him with a reputation as one of the preeminent artist-journalists of his era. At the onset of the Civil War, he was dispatched to cover the Army of the Potomac, the main Union military contingent. As a "special artist" for the newspaper, Waud produced a series of quickly rendered sketches in the field-including depictions of the First Battle of Bull Run-which were then printed as engravings. He remained with the army after joining the staff of Harperís Weekly magazine at the end of 1861 and went on to sketch scenes of the Battle of Gettysburg, among other significant military actions. After the war Waud continued to contribute sketches to Harperís, documenting American life in locales ranging from the Reconstruction-era South to the western frontier. As a freelance illustrator, he contributed work to a number of publications, including the illustrated Picturesque America (1872-74). CONDITION: Good condition overall with general toning and some with small tears including several partial pages. Refer to photos. [See more photos →]
