152 Lot 152: William Edmondson Sculpture, Lady With A Book William Edmondson Sculpture, Lady With A Book Lot 152: William Edmondson Sculpture, Lady With A Book

William Edmondson (American/Tennessee, 1874-1951) “Lady with a Book,” carved limestone sculpture depicting a standing woman with short curly hair wearing a dress with bustle, holding a book in her left hand, her right arm bent upward at her waist. 12″ H x 3 1/2″ W x 7″ D. Provenance: the estate of Leah Levitt, Long Island, New York. While it is unknown exactly when or where Mrs. Levitt and her late husband, David Levitt, acquired this sculpture and the Edmondson “Critter’ sculpture in the following lot (#153), both have been in their collection for decades. (The “Lady with a Book” can be seen in the background of several of the Levitt family’s photographs taken in the late 1950s-early 1960s). It is possible Mr. Levitt became familiar with Edmondson, or at least with Edmondson’s work, in the 1940s when in preparation for his work in the Armed Services, he (Levitt) attended French Language training at Vanderbilt University in Nashville. By that time, William Edmondson was well known in his hometown of Nashville and beyond, having become the first African American artist to receive a solo exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in 1937. Edmondson was born in Davidson County, Tennessee, the son of freed slaves, and worked most of his life in Nashville 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 a chisel, and he claimed divine inspiration for the works produced during his 17-year art career. In the 1930s, his work caught the attention of Professor Sidney Hirsch, who worked at Peabody College in Nashville, located just a few blocks from where Edmondson lived (and adjacent to the Vanderbilt campus). Professor Hirsch is credited with introducing Edmondson to well-connected arts patrons Alfred and Elizabeth Starr and Harper’s Bazaar photographer Louise Dahl-Wolfe. Wolfe’s now-famous photographs of Edmondson and his yard full of limestone sculptures brought him to the attention of the New York art world and gained him the acquaintance of Alfred Barr, Jr., director of the Museum of Modern Art, resulting in the landmark 1937 exhibit. Although Edmondson’s earliest work was more utilitarian in nature, such as tombstones and birdbaths, as his style matured his subject matter grew to include female figures (frequently based on women he knew from his community), Biblical figures, and various animals. PRE-APPROVAL IS REQUIRED TO BID ON THIS LOT. PLEASE CONTACT CASE ANTIQUES, INC. AT THE KNOXVILLE GALLERY FOR DETAILS. 865-558-3033 or BID@CASEANTIQUES.COM. CONDITION: Overall very good condition. Slight circular loss to lower back of dress approx. 1/4″, some small losses to center of back base approx. 3/4″. Protective felt added to the base. [See more photos →]

William Edmondson (American/Tennessee, 1874-1951) limestone “Critter” sculpture of a small animal sitting upright on its hind legs, with front legs and feet cast downward, atop a rectangular integral base. 12 1/4″ H x 4 1/2″ W x 8 1/4″ D. Note: This example is stylistically similar to a sculpture sold by Case Antiques in 2011, Lot #190. Provenance: the estate of Leah Levitt, Long Island, New York.

154 Lot 154: Important "TVA" Quilt, designed by Ruth Clement Bond Important "TVA" Quilt, designed by Ruth Clement Bond Lot 154: Important "TVA" Quilt, designed by Ruth Clement Bond

Important African American "TVA" Quilt, designed by Ruth Clement Bond and made by an unknown quilter working in the TVA dam sites at the juncture of Mississippi, Alabama, and Tennessee, circa 1937. The hand-stitched cotton quilt with cotton batting depicts a young black man with government-uniformed white arm on his right shoulder and a fiddle or guitar in his left hand, held by a woman whose face appears in partial profile upper right foreground and whose form is suggested by two partial curves in the foreground, right edge. The man's head is turned toward his right with his knees bent, against a background of sinking sun and light green foliage. Pale brown border with quilted vine and bud stitching and solid light orange backing. Unsigned. 81" H x 62" W. Note: This is one of five known surviving quilts in this pattern, named one of the top 100 quilts of the 20th century by judges elected from the Alliance for American Quilts, the American Quilt Study Group, the International Quilt Association, and the National Quilt Association. This lot includes a 1978 photograph of the quilt taken at "Seay-Me-Home," the vacation home of its then-owner, Maurice Seay, along with a copy of a typewritten document dated 1976 found with the quilt, describing Seay's connection to the quilt. It states this quilt was given as an expression of gratitude by workers at the Pickwick Dam Village to Maurice Seay, director of the educational program at the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) dam sites during the Depression era. It was designed by Ruth Clement Bond (1904-2005), an African American educator, civic leader, and designer who "helped transform the American quilt from a utilitarian bedcovering into a work of avant-garde social commentary" (Source: The New York Times obituary of Mrs. Bond, Nov. 13, 2005 – https://www.nytimes.com/2005/11/13/obituaries/ruth-clement-bond-101-quilter-and-civic-leader-is-dead.html ). Bond accompanied her husband, Dr. J. Max Bond, to the TVA dam construction sites where he had been hired in 1934 as a personnel manager to work with the black construction workers. He was, at the time, the company's highest ranking African American official. Mrs. Bond supplied wives of the workers living at the various sites with quilt designs, many rich with symbolism, including this one, which exhibits elements reminiscent of paintings by Harlem Renaissance artist Aaron Douglas (particularly his mural series, "Aspects of Negro Life," 1934). This is one of five quilts in this particular pattern known to exist along with one smaller related textile. The smaller textile is in the collection of the Museum of Art and Design in New York, one quilt is in the Michigan State University African American quilt collection, and a second quilt is in the private collection at TVA Headquarters. The whereabouts of the other two, both documented prior to 1990 by author and quilt researcher Merikay Waldvogel, are unknown. A detailed discussion of these so-called "TVA Quilts" can be found in Waldvogel's book, "Soft Covers for Hard Times: Quiltmaking and the Great Depression" (Rutledge Hill Press, 1990). It contains information from interviews with Bond and two of the quilters, Rose Marie Thomas and Grace Tyler. All offered slightly differing titles and meanings for the quilt. Bond herself stated "The man with his banjo is full of frivolity. He is between the hand of the government [TVA] and the hand of a woman. He must choose between the government job and the life he has known…we wanted to show that he chose the TVA job. It has a hopeful message…things were getting better and the black worker had a part in it." (p. 80). Note: The Seay paperwork dated 1976 (which appears to have been compiled for an exhibit at Western Michigan University the same year) indicates this quilt was made in Northeastern Mississippi, however, the other surviving quilts all have strong ties to the Wheeler Dam construction site in North Alabama. CONDITION: Central image in very good structural condition with even fading and a 3" area of tiny scattered stains lower left; a couple of tiny areas of separation in stitching at lowermost edge of guitar and on subject's left lower leg at edge. Border with overall fading in addition to discoloration and significant color loss along lower section. Scattered smaller areas of border have barely noticeable discoloration (largest is 1"L, positioned along right edge). Documentation with this lot includes a note from this quilt's original owner, Maurice Seay, dated 1988, stating that the bottom of the quilt "was stained and faded as it hung on the north wall in the cabin."

151 Lot 151: Augusta Savage Plaster Sculpture, "Gamin" Augusta Savage Plaster Sculpture, "Gamin" Lot 151: Augusta Savage Plaster Sculpture, "Gamin"

Augusta Christine Fells (Moore) Savage (American, 1892-1962) plaster sculpture with bronze patina titled GAMIN along front edge, depicting a young African American male with a tilted cap and wrinkled shirt. Signed “Savage” vertically in rectangle on the backside. Created circa 1929. 9″ H x 5 3/4″ W x 4 3/8″ D. Biography (adapted from The Johnson Collection): Augusta Savage was a leading artist of the Harlem Renaissance. One of fourteen children born to a rural Florida preacher, she moved to New York in 1921 with less than $5 to her name to pursue the study of sculpture at the Cooper Union. Her skill in creating portrait busts of African Americans earned her praise, but she was denied admission to a women’s summer art program in France because of her race — an injustice that provoked national headlines. Her first “Gamin” sculpture was created in 1929 and was “a critical work not only to Savage’s career, but also as an embodiment of the Harlem Renaissance’s mission. The representation of the solemn, sensitive youth expressed the inherent dignity of an African American identity that many black artists sought to promote. Here, Savage captures an arrested moment, a sense of true immediacy; the child’s glance feels natural and uncontrived. While the subject is presumed to be her nephew, Ellis Ford, Gamin was conceived as a type rather than a portrait, representing one of the city’s countless street urchins. The critical and commercial success of Gamin catapulted Savage’s reputation far beyond Harlem art circles. The breakthrough sculpture garnered the attention of patrons and at last earned her a fellowship through the Julius Rosenwald Foundation to study in Paris. She arrived there in the autumn of 1929 and connected with fellow African American expatriates like Henry O. Tanner, Nancy Prophet, and Hale Woodruff. In late 1931, in the midst of the Great Depression, Savage returned to Harlem, where she concentrated on teaching and advocacy.” She established the Savage Studio of Arts & Crafts in 1932 and taught at the Harlem Community Arts Center and the Harlem Artists Guild, inspiring many future African American Artists. Provenance: private California collection, by descent from the estate of Clara D’Agostino, New York. CONDITION: A couple of shallow chips to hat brim, one to nose and another to the chin. All have been touched up with a blue color paint. Fleabite to one eyebrow and along the right side base edge. Scratching to the base. [See more photos →]

Carroll Cloar (Tennessee, 1913-1993) signed lithograph on paper titled "Group of Myselves," depicting a self-portrait of the artist at various stages of life, set against the background of a rural town. Signed in pencil lower right and titled lower left. Housed under glass in an ebonized and molded giltwood frame with black mat. Sight – 16" H x 12" W. Framed – 22" H x 18" W. Circa 1939. Note: This is considered one of Cloar's most important, and scarce, lithographs. One is in the collection of the Philadelphia Museum of Art and another was exhibited in the 2014 exhibit of Cloar Lithographs at the Georgia Museum of Art. It is the first work (and one of the few lithographs) set to poetry in the book "Second Sight: Poems for Paintings by Carroll Cloar" by Dabney Stuart (University Of Missouri Press, 1996, ref. p.3). Biography: Carroll Cloar was known for incorporating nostalgic images from his Southern childhood, often merged with dreamlike motifs, into powerful magic realist scene, and noted that literature, particularly by Southern Gothic writers such as William Faulkner or Eudora Welty, influenced his artistic approach. 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 upon his return, he was awarded a Guggenheim traveling scholarship to fund an extended sojourn to Central and South America. 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.

155 Lot 155: Exhibited African-American Schoolhouse Quilt Exhibited African-American Schoolhouse Quilt Lot 155: Exhibited African-American Schoolhouse Quilt

Southern African-American quilt, attributed to Margaret or Lema Carr of Rogersville, Tennessee, recently exhibited at Colonial Williamsburg. This quilt displays an ingenious and unique design by incorporating the traditional Schoolhouse pattern with a semi-abstract Tree of Life motif, using hand-stitched pieced and appliqued cotton and synthetic fabrics. Eight rectangular panels enclose multicolored schoolhouses with beads representing door knobs and embroidered flowers, facing each other; the “roofs” and panel borders are joined by a central green vertical “tree trunk” to become its limbs, with all enclosed within a mauve border. Off white cotton backing. 78 1/2″ x 63 1/2″. Early to mid 20th century. Provenance: According to family tradition, Margaret Carr (born ca. 1909), an African-American schoolteacher from Rogersville, Tennessee, made the quilt or inherited it from her mother. Margaret appears in the 1940 United States census from Hawkins County, Tennessee when she was 31 years old and living on North Church Street with her parents George and Lema Carr. Although she had completed four years of college, Margaret was working as a cook in a private home at the time of that census. Margaret also taught at Swift University in Rogersville, Tennessee. She remained single until at least 1971, when the local Rogersville Review newspaper reported that Miss Margaret Carr hosted a meeting of the Woman’s Home and Foreign Missionary Society of Russell Chapel Church at her home on Church Street. Russell Chapel was an African Methodist Episcopal Church. (source: The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation). Provenance: the collection of Mary Jo Case, Kingsport, Tennessee. Exhibited, “A Century of African-American Quilts,” McCarl Gallery of the Art Museums at Colonial Williamsburg, February, 2017, to June of 2018. CONDITION: Overall good condition.

592 Lot 592: Portrait of Gov. Jonathan Belcher, engraved by Faber Portrait of Gov. Jonathan Belcher, engraved by Faber Lot 592: Portrait of Gov. Jonathan Belcher, engraved by Faber

Important c. 1734 mezzotint portrait of Jonathan Belcher, the Colonial Governor of Massachusetts and founder of the College of New Jersey, now Princeton University; engraving by John Faber the Younger (British, 1684-1756) after the now-lost painting by Richard Phillips. Over the subject's left shoulder is a view of Beacon Hill and its environs, derived from a circa 1723 engraving by William Burgis. Belcher is depicted standing in curly white wig and formal coat, holding his commission, with the royal seal (lower right) and the Belcher family arms (center, lower margin). Old Bowling Green, KY framer's business card taped to back of frame. Housed under glass in an ebonized frame with gilt rabbet edge. Sheet – 9 3/4" H x 13 7/8" W. Framed – 16" H x 12 1/2" W. Note: Jonathan Belcher (1682-1757) was a third-generation descendant of an early settler of the Massachusetts colony (Andrew Belcher). He became a prosperous merchant and was colonial governor of the British colonies of Massachusetts and New Hampshire from 1730-1741, and of New Jersey from 1746 until 1757, the year of his death. According to the Princeton University website, Belcher, "alienated by religious developments at his alma mater, Harvard, sympathized with the fledgling college in New Jersey. On September 14, 1748, Belcher granted a second charter, which expanded the trustees from 12 to 23, stipulating that the governor would chair the Board of Trustees and that four seats would be reserved for members of the New Jersey Council. He also added three leading Philadelphians, placating a group that had felt excluded. These appointments, by not specifying religious affiliation, made Princeton the first American college whose trustees were drawn from more than one denomination. On November 9, 1748, at the College's first Commencement, the trustees conferred on Belcher Princeton's first honorary degree. Belcher encouraged the trustees to raise funds for a college building and played a central role in its location. While Newark, Elizabeth and New Brunswick were initial favorites, Belcher threw his influence behind Princeton — 'as near the center of the Province as any and a fine situation.' Just before the College moved to Princeton, Belcher donated his 474-volume library, a full-length portrait of himself, his carved and gilded coat-of-arms, a pair of terrestrial globes, and portraits of 10 kings and queens of England. In gratitude, the trustees asked his permission to name the new building in his honor. Instead, the governor persuaded them to name it Nassau Hall, "for the glorious King William the Third of the illustrious House of Nassau," who was highly regarded by dissenters as a champion of religious freedom and political liberty. Although only six of Belcher's books have survived, he is still honored as the library's oldest benefactor. When Firestone Library was built in 1948, his coat of arms was carved in stone over the main entrance along with those of the University. Belcher's full-length portrait and the paintings of the 10 English monarchs were destroyed during the Revolution." (Source: https://princetoniana.princeton.edu/history/early-years/belcher). CONDITION: Even, overall toning. Margins trimmed to plate edge. Print has been fully adhered to a sheet of toned paper, which has been adhered to a mat board.

Whitesburg/Hamblen County, TN 1916), who used it as a "pepper shaker". Old label reading "98" on underside of chicken corresponds to a similar numbering system used on an inventory list created by Joseph Feamster Taylor (1892-1965) of Whitesburg, TN, son of Franklin Walter Taylor (1854-1919), grandson of Franklin William Taylor (1810-1897), great grandson of Lieutenant William Graham (1786-1857), the owner of the Early TN Militia coat in Lot 608, and father of Joseph Franklin Taylor (1934-2015), (as referenced on a powder horn, also in this sale). According to the book "The Moravian Potters in North Carolina", Chapel Hill, NC: University of North Carolina Press, 1972 by John Bivens, Jr., Moravian earthenware forms were probably being sold in frontier stores from Wytheville, Virginia to the Watauga settlement of East Tennessee (p.21, Bivens).

606 Lot 606: Cheek's Cross Roads Archive, 1802-1807, Davy Crockett interest Cheek's Cross Roads Archive, 1802-1807, Davy Crockett interest Lot 606: Cheek's Cross Roads Archive, 1802-1807, Davy Crockett interest

Cheek's Cross Roads, Tennessee, leatherbound journal or ledger, dating from June 12, 1802 through June 10, 1807, for a store owned and operated during this time period by David Deaderick (1754-1823), William Conway (born ca. 1775), and David Wendel (1785-1840), plus book and cabinet card (3 items total). Located in what is now Hamblen County, TN, Cheeks Cross Roads was acquiredby Jesse Cheek as part of a Hawkins County, TN land grant in 1789 along the intersection of Stage Road coming from Abingdon, VA and Kentucky Road between Kentucky and the Carolinas. He built a general merchandisestore in about 1795 that was later expanded to add stock pens for cattle hogs, mules, and horses. The store and all 200 acres of the Cheeks Roads property were purchased by David Deaderick and William Conway, both of Hawkins County, TN, from Jesse Cheek, recorded as being from Jefferson County, TN, on a deed of sale dated November 23, 1801, for the sum of $1800, witnessed by Charles T. Porter and David Wendel. The new owners of the store built a two-story brick structure that opened in 1802 near the original wooden structure. Conway left the partnership in 1804, and David Wendel joined Deaderick, who was operating out of Jonesborough, TN, in the business. It is during this time period, 1802-1807, that the journal was used as a record of purchases made by around 900 individuals, primarily men, each with their own account numbers. William Conway and David Wendel were the main contributors to the journal, each with their own styles of recording entries,all handwritten in ink. Conway's entries likely occurred on pages 76-123, pages 153-174, and Wendel's entries likely start on pages 175-248 when he was an apprenticeclerk at the store around April-August 1803, and continuing from page 249 until the end of the journal when he became a partner.Entries began on June 12, 1802 through the end of August, 1803, on page 247, with entries for August 1 and 2, 1803 on page 248. Page 249 then jumps to January 1, 1806, and ends on page 509 on June10, 1807, with about 32 months of recorded transactions in the journal. The first 75 pages were recorded by different individuals, likely otherapprenticeclerks. The entries show that the store sold a wide variety of goods, including books, dry goods, farm implements, foodstuffs, hardware and tools, equine equipment, housewares, medicines, a few musical instruments, personal care items, and, occasionally luxury items such as a crystal necklace, tea sets with colored edges, and laces. While most transactions were conducted on the barter system without the use of coin or currency, the journal records that the British monetary system was still in use until March, April, and May of 1803 when sales were recorded in both pounds and dollars. Starting on July 1, 1803, only dollars and cents were used. In addition toitsfunction as a general store, it also served as the local post office, with Conway and Wendel both serving as postmaster, and as a bank. Included is one (1) editor signed copy of the book CHEEKS CROSS ROADS TENNESSEE, STORE JOURNAL 1802-1807, edited by Ann K. Blomquist, PUBLISHED BY Gateway Press, Inc. Baltimore, 2001, and one (1) cabinet card depicting a portrait of Davy Crockett with a facsimile signature, studio marks for McCary and Branson, Knoxville TN. Journal – 13" H x 8 3/8" W x 2" D. Book – 11 3/8" H x 8 3/4" W x 1 1/2" D. Cabinet card – 6 1/2" H x 4 1/4" D. Note: Jesse Creek was acquainted with Davy Crockett (1786-1836) who grew up nearby where his parents John and Rebecca operated a tavern. In his autobiography, Crockett describes how, at age 12, he ran away from home, "I then cut out, and went to the house of an acquaintancea few miles off, who was just about to start with a drove. His name was Jesse Cheek, and I hired myself to go with him, determining not to return home, as home and the school-house had both become too hot for me." Note: Wendel left the partnership in 1817 to move to Murfreesboro, and Deaderick's son, David Anderson Deaderick (1797-1873), took over. The property remained in the Deaderick family after the death of the original David and was operated by his sons. By 1833, it had passed to James William Deaderick (1812-1890), another son of the original David. However, he was not a successful businessman and the Panic of 1837 contributed to the failure of the business. Afterwards, JamesDeaderick studied law and then served on the Tennessee Supreme Court. In 1844, Franklin W. Taylor bought the property from the Bank of Rogersville and operated the store with a variety of partners, includingHughes O. Taylor and Leeper Long. The brick store builtbyDeaderick and Conway and remnants of the wooden store built by Cheek were still standing in 1915 when Franklin Taylor showed Mr. McClung and Dr. George Mellon the location of the original Cheek's Cross Roads. While there are currently no visible signs of these early structures, there is a TennesseeHistoricalCommissionmarker at the site of the old store.

In 1966, Vaccaro, then an aerospace design engineer, became in his words a "Human Guinea Pig" for the Lunex II program, designed to simulate a 14-21 day scientific mission to explore the surface of the Moon.

Many of the 8 x 10 photographs are stamped en verso with NASA captions and/or handwritten captions and dates ranging from 1951-1971; some are press photographs but others have never been publicly released or were taken by Vaccaro personally.

495 Lot 495: Harvey Littleton Blown Glass Sculpture Harvey Littleton Blown Glass Sculpture Lot 495: Harvey Littleton Blown Glass Sculpture

Harvey Kline Littleton (American, 1922-2013) blown glass sculpture in the form of a horseshoe, comprised of amber colored looped glass with faux seam mounted onto a rectangular clear glass base. Etched signature and date “1974” on the underside of the base. Sculpture – 7″ H x 8 1/2″ W x 2 1/2″ D. Overall – 8 1/4″ H x 8 1/2″ W x 2 1/2″ D. Biography (source: The Smithsonian Institution): “Harvey Littleton is considered the father of the studio glass movement in the United States. After serving with the U.S. Signal Corps during World War II, he studied industrial design at the University of Michigan, earning a B.D. degree in 1947. In 1951 he received an M.A. degree from the Cranbrook Academy of Art. That year he accepted a teaching position in the Department of Art and Art Education at the University of Wisconsin, remaining on the faculty until 1977. Littleton’s initial specialty was ceramics, but by the late 1950s he was exploring the possibility of creating studio glass. Through research sponsored by the Toledo Museum of Art in 1962 he developed equipment and a formula for melting glass at lower temperatures, enabling him to blow glass in a studio rather than in the usual factory setting. This breakthrough led Littleton to play a major role in introducing glass blowing in college and university craft programs. His own program at the University of Wisconsin fostered the talents of a generation of glass artists, including Dale Chihuly and Fritz Dreisbach. In 1983 Littleton was awarded the Gold Medal of the American Craft Council.” Harvey Littleton’s works have been collected and exhibited at many institutions including the American Craft Museum, New York City; Cooper Hewitt National Museum of Design, Smithsonian Institution, New York; Corning Museum of Glass, New York; Detroit Institute of Arts; Los Angeles County Museum, Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York and Museum of Modern Art, New York.

CATALOG OF BOOKS IN THE NASHVILLE LIBRARY, MARCH, 1825, printed by Joseph Norvell, Nashville, 1825. 22-page pamphlet (including covers) with inventory of books in the Nashville library by subject matter (approximately 300 titles). Latter pages list Present Officers of the library and Library Rules. The front cover of this extremely rare imprint is signed by Judge John Overton, the early Tennessee jurist, advisor to President Andrew Jackson, co-founder of Memphis and owner of Traveller's Rest Plantation. Note: In 1813, the Tennessee General Assembly passed "an act to incorporate the Nashville Library Company." Seven directors were appointed to select a librarian, clerk and treasurer, but it wasn't until 1823 that the legislature passed an amendment authorizing a lottery to raise "up to $5,000" to actually purchase books. (Source: The Encyclopedia of Library and Information Science, published by Marcel Dekker, Inc. 1976). Note this was not a Public Library, but rather a subscription-based business venture; each shareholder was required to pay a semi-annual contribution of one dollar on each share. Persons not holding shares could, however, pay 12 1/2 cents per week to borrow a book and were required to pay the Librarian a deposit equal to the value of the book before it could be removed from the premises. The library, located "above Robertson and Eliot's Bookstore" on the Public Square, was open two days a week. This pamphlet is the earliest known inventory of the books in the collection. 7 3/4" x 5". Provenance: the estate of Dr. Benjamin Caldwell, Jr., Nashville, Tennessee.

Note: This painting was illustrated in Xanthus Smith and the Civil War: The Philadelphia Collection, LXV, pl. 14. Biography: Xanthus Smith was born to artists William Thompson Russell Smith and Mary Priscilla Wilson Smith, who lead him to study art at a young age in his household. From 1851-1852, he accompanied his family in Europe to study old master paintings and became particularly influenced by naturalism in English landscapes. In the outbreak of Civil War, Smith enlisted in the U.S. Navy, where he made small drawings during his time on the USS "Wabash". These were recognized by Admiral Du Pont, who promptly commissioned Smith to paint the ships in the fleet. At the end of the war, Smith began exhibiting his paintings of federal vessels, and maintained popularity for both his paintings and sketches in the years following as his accounts provide a unique glimpse of the Civil War through the eyes of an artist. Note: Xanthus Smith was a member of The Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and The Royal Academy in London. (source: The Johnson Collection, Spartanburg, SC).

597 Lot 597: Emily Tennessee Donelson ALS, White House Hostess Emily Tennessee Donelson ALS, White House Hostess Lot 597: Emily Tennessee Donelson ALS, White House Hostess

Very scarce autograph letter, signed, by Emily Tennessee Donelson (1807-1836), wife of Andrew Jackson Donelson, who served as First Lady / White House Hostess to President Andrew Jackson from 1828 to about 1834. This letter, with both personal and political content, is dated "The Mansion, Oct. 15th, 1830," and addressed to Andrew Jackson Donelson. "The Mansion" likely does not refer to the White House but a home near Nashville where Emily stayed while her husband returned to Washington, DC; part of the reason for her remaining behind was likely the worsening of the so-called Petticoat Affair involving Secretary of War John Eaton and his wife Peggy, whom Emily had treated coldly, putting a strain on her own relationship with the President. (In early 1830, the Eatons had declined a White House dinner invitation, citing Emily's treatment of Mrs. Eaton; Emily refused to resume her White House duties as long as Peggy Eaton was accepted at the White House). Nevertheless, in this letter, Emily seeks to maintain peace in a potential rift between President Jackson and her husband. She begins with personal matters, writing "I am happy to hear that you think so highly of my portrait [probably one painted by Ralph E.W. Earl] and hope you will make it supply in some measure the place of the original. I suppose you were all at the wedding last night, and hope you all enjoyed yourselves, and that Daniel and Margaret [future CSA General Daniel Smith Donelson and Margaret Branch] were as happy as possible. I was thinking of you all the evening and would have given anything to have been there. Give my love to them and tell them I wish them every happiness and blessing that this world can afford…." The letter soon takes a political turn, as she brings up a speech by a Mr Burton. "My dear husband, let me beg you not to let it ruffle in any way your feelings toward Uncle Jackson, for such a thing would be more acceptable to your enemies than anything you could do. Mr. B shows plainly that they are all jealous of Uncle's friendship to you and are making use of every exertion in their power to separate you. I hope you will follow the advice of such friends as Mr. McLemore and suffer any mortification on his account. Burton's __ will recoil on his own head and there let it rest. Uncle [sic] last words to me were that before he would do anything to injure the honor of yourself, who he had raised as his own son, he would cut off his right arm." News of her children is also contained, and a postscript question inquiring if Major Lewis is still at the President's House.

He was particularly drawn to Holland, where he eventually set up a studio. He painted many landscape, genre, and marine paintings, some of which were collected by the Dutch Royal Family. After roughly twenty years, he moved back to New York and helped popularize Dutch art in America. His son, artist Emile Gruppe, was born in 1896, and they spent many years painting together and influencing each other’s work. The two shared a studio in Rockport from 1925-1929, but both remained in the Cape Ann area until Charles died in 1940 at the age of 80. In his lifetime he received recognition and awards in Europe, as well as two silver medals at the World’s Fair in St. Louis in 1903, for his use of watercolor and oil.

Framed – 20 1/2" H x 24 1/2" W. Note: the New York Times, in its obituary of Alfred Wertheimer, wrote, "Mr. Wertheimer was 26 and had not been a professional photographer for long when he got a call from RCA Victor Records asking him to take publicity shots of one of its new artists, a young Southerner making his first television appearance, on the Dorsey Brothers' "Stage Show" on CBS. It was March 1956, and Presley had just one big hit, "Heartbreak Hotel." Mr. Wertheimer had never heard of him. Nearly 60 years later, the black-and-white pictures Mr. Wertheimer made over a total of about 10 days "…have become a compelling and revealing part of the vast visual record of rock-n-roll's first superstar." Wertheimer's candid images of Elvis were largely forgotten until the superstar's death in 1977; they eventually made their way into book collections and in 2010 they were featured as part of a traveling exhibit organized by the Smithsonian: "Elvis at 21, Photographs by Alfred Wertheimer".

Both housed in matching pierced gilt frames. Sight – 23 1/4" H x 19 1/4" W. Framed – 27 1/2" H x 23 3/8" W. Mid-19th century. Provenance: Found in Knoxville, TN estate. Biography (by James C. Kelly, Virginia Historical Society): "Portraitist Samuel M. Shaver was born in Sullivan County, the son of David Shaver and Catherine (Barringer) Shaver. He may have been influenced by William Harrison Scarborough (1812-1871), a native-born Tennessee artist, four years Shaver's senior, who did portraits of Shaver's relatives. Shaver's earliest known painting dates to 1845, but he was probably painting before that time. For the next quarter-century, he was East Tennessee's standard portraitist. In 1851 Shaver was professor of drawing and painting at the Odd Fellows Female Institute in Rogersville. In 1852 he advertised in Greeneville and Knoxville papers; for several years thereafter his whereabouts are unknown. The death of his first wife in January 1856 recalled him to Rogersville, where he remained until the Civil War. At the outset of the war, pro-Confederate Shaver moved to Knoxville, where he became one of the founders of the East Tennessee Art Association. The association commissioned him to do portraits of fifteen Confederate leaders and generals, presumably from photographs. None of the portraits have been located, and perhaps they were never painted. From 1863 to 1868 Shaver lived and worked near Russellville. About 1868 he joined his mother-in-law and family in Jerseyville, Illinois, near St. Louis, where he continued painting. He died June 21, 1878." CONDITION: Canvas adhered to paperboard. Blistering, craquelure and scratching with losses (largest 2 1/4" to female portrait, on face) to both canvases.

Best known for his depictions of the Tennessee Walking Horse, Streeter also created scores of other images using wrapped and twisted wireÉBy the time of his death in 1998, Streeter had gained national exposure. He participated in the National Black Arts Festival in 1990, and his work attracted collectors from around the United States. Born in 1919 in Wartrace, Tennessee, Streeter moved with his family to what would later become a Tennessee Walking Horse farm. At the time, owners were still training their mixed thoroughbreds to prance in front of buggies. The oldest of six brothers, he learned the horse grooming and training business from his father. When the first Walking Horse Celebration was held in Wartrace, Streeter was there to observe the high-stepping front legs and sliding, low-slung back legs that created the characteristic rocking gait. After the Walking Horse Celebration moved to its current home in the county seat of Shelbyville, Streeter took special pride in the fact that African American trainers helped develop the Walking Horse style and that champion horse "Strolling Jim" was from Wartrace."

605 Lot 605: 2 letters to Andrew Jackson inc. Creek War, Francis Preston Blair 2 letters to Andrew Jackson inc. Creek War, Francis Preston Blair Lot 605: 2 letters to Andrew Jackson inc. Creek War, Francis Preston Blair

Two (2) Letters to Andrew Jackson, from Robert Irwin and Francis Preston Blair. 1st item: Creek War era ALS from Robert Irwin, commander of Fort Gaines, Alabama, addressed to Major General Andrew Jackson. Makes reference to hunger conditions among soldiers at the camp; Irwin's unsuccessful attempts to acquire pork from Fort Mitchell; and a large amount of corn burned, possibly "by the Indians." Undated, circa 1813. Bifold. 12" x 8", folded. 2nd item: Francis Preston Blair (1791-1876) ALS addressed to "My Dear General," dated April 15, 1840, regarding the 1840 presidential elections. Blair was born in Abingdon, VA and raised in Kentucky. He was a journalist, newspaper editor, and influential advisor to several politicians, including President Jackson. Although Jackson's second presidential term had ended three years earlier and he was near the end of his life, this letter shows he still took a keen interest in politics. "I know that you feel a deep interest in the arrangements to be made for our next great battle, and none could order better than you," writes Blair. He references the impending re-nomination of Martin Van Buren (who would go on to defeat in the general election later that year) and expresses confidence in the incumbent Vice President, Richard M. Johnson. Ironically, the following month, the Democratic party refused to re-nominate Johnson. They were unable to agree on an alternative, and decided not to nominate anyone. It remains the only time since the passage of the 12th Amendment in 1804 that a major party has failed to nominate a Vice Presidential candidate. (In the electoral college, the Democratic vice-presidential votes were divided among Johnson, Littleton Tazewell, and one of Jackson's proteges, James K. Polk, who is mentioned in passing in this letter, and was ultimately elected President in 1844 with influential assistance from Jackson). Letter is one single page, front and back, 8" x 10", and includes a later typewritten transcription on an additional 8" x 10" sheet of paper. Provenance: the estate of Dr. Benjamin Caldwell, Jr., Nashville, Tennessee. CONDITION: 1st item: 3 long separations/tears, crossing fold line; 7" loss with tears at bottom of page, crossing fold line. Sticker is on exterior of plastic sheath, not on the paper. 2nd item: Excellent condition; toning. Pencil notations from former owner. [See more photos →]

Lewis, James Hennen, and John McNairy, Trustees of the Federal Seminary, "the sums annexed to our names for the purpose of building a school house." Dated Feb. 19, 1799.

The Trustees of the Federal Seminary addressed in this document were some of the most prominent Tennesseans of the period: James Robertson was an explorer recognized as a founder of Nashville and the Father of Middle Tennessee; Andrew Jackson went on to become President, and Jackson's friend and mentor John McNairy was one of Tennessee's first federal judges.
