Lot 3445

Details: It is challenging for us to imagine how the impact of the Civil War dominated the cultural consciousness of 19th and early 20th century Americans, but this antique framed advertisement is an example of that. Printed around 1895 by the Gage Tool Co. of Vineland, NJ, it reproduces the July 4th, 1863 edition of the Vicksburg, MS "Daily Citizen." Due to paper shortages during the siege of Vicksburg, the newspaper was being printed on wallpaper, which this replica faithfully copies. When the city fell to General Ulysses Grant's Army of the Tennessee on Independence Day (by chance coinciding with the Battle of Gettysburg), the paper was published just as it had been originally typeset by the Confederates, complete with jeering allusions to Grant -- but with a sly note appended at the bottom, announcing Grant's victory.

This reproduction is framed between two panes and glass so it can be viewed from either side. It measures 22.5" x 25".

To inspect and acquire more detailed information about this lot, please attend our live preview before the auction.
Condition / Notes: Note that the piece is brown with age, is frayed at the edges and has been mended with tape. Sealed between glass, its present condition is well-preserved for display. The frame is in excellent shape.

Details: This collection of antique stirrups also contains one spur, which has an uncommonly large rowel. Made of cast iron, the spur is 7.5" long, with a rowel 3.5" in diameter.

Three of the stirrups in this collection are small and unusual, and were probably made for children. The first, which still has a bit of harness attached at the top, has a semi-circular guide at the top to hold the foot in place, and a leather-covered foot rest. It is 7" long and 7" tall.

The second stirrup has a leather slipper attached to its foot rest. The foot rest pivots over the bottom of the stirrup for better control. It is 8" long and 4.5" high.

The third, child-size stirrup is heart-shaped, and looks perfect for a little girl's pony. It is made of cast iron, and is 4" long and 3.5" high.

The last stirrup is very heavy, and looks like it is made of solid brass. It is 4.25" wide and 5" tall.

To inspect and acquire more detailed information about this lot, please attend our live preview before the auction.


Condition / Notes: With the exception of the brass stirrup, all of these articles show varying degrees of oxidation. Leatherwork is dried out, and has separated from the metal in some places.

Details: Most of this collection of World's Fair memorabilia promotes the 1933 Chicago exposition, and features classic risque or girlie pictures. These carefully trimmed pictures look like they're printed on newsprint; one of them is a nude drawing from a live model. Two of the pictures illustrate the "white slave" trade, or "...what the devilish yellow man does with our white womanhood, over in far-off China." These six clippings are all mounted on 7.5" x 10.75" cardboard and shrink-wrapped.

The other item in this collection is an oil cloth bookmark from the 1892-3 Columbia Exhibition in Chicago. It measures 2.5" x 8.25".

Title: A Journal of the Life, Gospel Labours, and Christian Experiences of That Faithful Minister of Jesus Christ, John Woolman, Late of Mount Holly, in the Province of New Jersey, North America. To Which Are Added His Works, Containing His Last Epistle, and Other Writings
Author: John Woolman - John Woolman was a North American merchant, tailor, journalist and itinerant Quaker preacher, and an early abolitionist in the colonial era. Based in Mount Holly, New Jersey, near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, he traveled through frontier areas of British North America to preach Quaker beliefs, and advocate against slavery and the slave trade, cruelty to animals, economic injustices and oppression, and conscription; from 1755 during the French and Indian War, he urged tax resistance to deny support to the military. In 1772, Woolman traveled to England, where he urged Quakers to support abolition of slavery.

Woolman published numerous essays, especially against slavery. He kept a journal throughout his life; it was published posthumously, entitled "The Journal of John Woolman" (1774). Included in Volume I of the Harvard Classics since 1909, it is considered a prominent American spiritual work. The Journal has been continuously in print since 1774, published in numerous editions; the most recent scholarly edition was published in 1989.

Title: The Life of the Cliff-Dwellers
Author: Frederick H. Chapin - Frederick H. Chapin was an American business man, mountaineer, photographer, amateur archaeologist and author. He is best known for his exploration of mesas and ruins found in the Mesa Verde area of Colorado. Although his book is relatively unknown today, his descriptions, maps and quality photographs are an important historical resource.


Chapin visited the Mesa Verde region during the summers of 1889 and 1890, using explorer Richard Wetherill and members of his family as guides. Although active in exploring and photographing the sites, Chapin was not heavily involved in excavating the ruins or collecting artifacts due to time constraints. He did, however, photograph artifacts collected by the Wetherills, and was glad to receive artifacts they collected and forwarded to him. Chapin also assessed the climbing possibilities of mesas and peaks in the area. He described the landscape and ruins in an 1890 article and later in a 1892 book, "The Land of the Cliff-Dwellers," illustrated with hand drawn maps and personal photographs. Chapin Mesa, which shelters many of the best known cliff dwellings of Mesa Verde, is named for him.

Title: Spiritual Life: or, Regeneration, Illustrated in a Series of Disquisitions, Relative to Its Author, Subject, Nature, Means, &c.
Author: George Duffield - George Duffield was a leading nineteenth-century New School Presbyterian minister who bore the same name as his father and grandfather. His evolution from unconventional doctrinal leanings to more orthodox and standard ones typified the moderation on both sides which led to reunion with the Old School Presbyterians in 1870.

Duffield's grandfather of the same name had been Chaplain of the Continental Congress. Born July 4, 1794, in Strasburg, Pennsylvania, to a second George Duffield and his wife Faithful Slaymaker (a younger sister of Amos Slaymaker). He was the father of William Ward Duffield, Henry M. Duffield, and George Duffield, Jr.

The subject of this sketch graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in 1811. He studied theology in New York City under the preceptorship of John M. Mason and was licensed to preach by the Presbytery of Philadelphia in 1815. He soon settled in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, where he ministered nineteen years. There he wrote and published a book entitled "Regeneration" which caused some of the controversy leading to the Old School-New School Controversy that split the church in 1837.

He was called as minister to Fifth Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where he stayed two years. Then, after passing one year in the ministry at Broadway Tabernacle Church in New York City, as co-pastor with Jacob Helffenstein and successor to Charles Finney, he accepted a call to the First Presbyterian Church in Detroit, Michigan, then called the "Protestant" church. There he grew disenchanted with the revivalist techniques of Finney and began to oppose his ministry. In 1847 he led the Detroit Presbytery to adopt a statement which censured Finney, entitled "A Warning Against Error."

He was appointed to the Board of Regents of the University of Michigan on which he served ten years. His influence extended over the whole state of Michigan and made use of the press as well as the pulpit. He was learned in Latin, Greek, Hebrew, French, and German as well as English. He was a master of the sciences and had an unfailing memory.

He died as he had wished, "in the harness," two days after addressing the 1868 International Convention of the Young Men's Christian Association at Detroit, where he paused suddenly, in the midst of his address, and fell with a cry of distress into the arms of those standing near him. His death was mourned throughout Detroit.
