    Typed Letter Signed, 1TLS on Author's Stationery to Tilghman Hough by Dowdey, Clifford

    1TLS on his printed letterhead regarding presumably "Experiment in Rebellion". Dear Mr. Hough, Thank you for your lettere and for your eagle eye. As you know, there a lot of words in 500 long pages [the book actually had 455 pages] and, unfortunately, when the final corrections are made it is always when everyone is exhausted, nervous and only anxious to be done with the whole thing. As to date, we have caught three other errors as ridiculous as using Governor Harris' first name. We shall try to catch them all in later editions. Sincerely yours, Clifford Dowdey.

    (Arizona Territory, Fort Whipple) Stereographic Card, Company Quarters, Circa 1877 and 1885 Territorial Postmark

    A pristine stereographic card taken by Daniel Francis Mitchell who photographed Arizona views for sale from 1877. Mitchell also was in partnership with Baer and remained active in the territory until at least 1883. Accompanied with an envelope from the War Department Headquarers of Arizona addressed to Major A.J. McGonnigle, Chief Quartermaster, [Fort] Whipple, postmarked March 16, 1885. This was a turbulent time since on July 13 he had to report to the Quartermaster General of the U.S. about Samuel Drachman's failure at Fort Huachuca where what the latter did amounted to taking kickbacks of more than $40 on each 100 pounds of hay. Eventually, Drachman was only sued for $475 but it was a blot on his record. Of course, it should be noted that the parade of quartermasters at Fort Whipple were accused of the same thing such as declaring weapons obsolete and then selling them to the local Prescott merchants. This charge was never proved and since the Fort was considered essential in suppressing Indian attacks, it was overlooked. Verso of card notes discarded as a duplicate from Sharlot Hall Museum in Prescott.

She was inducted in 1989 into the Arizona Women's Hall of Fame. A similar photograph measuring 7 1/2" x 4 3/4" sold at the Skinner Auction in 2002 for $811.

    [Photograph] Alfred Lord Tennyson (1809-1892) , carte De Viste

    (The London Stereoscopic and Photographic Company London, 1862). Very Good. One of the most important CDV's for the 1862 International Exhibition. What made CDV's was that they were ideal for collectors as opposed to those earlier photographs printed on card stock and consequently were more durable and did not have to be pasted into a scrapbook to protect. Dickens, Longfellow, and Hans Christian Anderson were among the most popular. This is an early image and was intended for distribution at the Exhibition but this copy was purchased by the original collector in December 1864 (see verso of card) He had already been appointed Poet Laureate a decade earlier but it was here where he met Queen Victoria in April 1862. Victoria wrote in her diary, "very peculiar looking, tall, dark, with a fine head, long black flowing hair & a beard, oddly dressed, but there is no affectation about him."

    Sandy Macpherson; Book Collector; Linocuts By Bill Jackson (with 1als laid in from Bill Jackson) by Levy, Newman

    Council Bluffs, Iowa: The Yellow Barn Press, 1998. Limited Edition. 12mo. [25] p. Laid in is wonderful 12 line letter by Bill Jackson on his Four Ducks letterhead, the noted fine printer and here the lithographer who comments on the ink of his design. Very nice for the student of fine printing. The story of the legendary and hopefully mythical bookseller (probably book collector) who showed his treasures including items signed by Homer to Pindar, Virgil to Augustus Caesar and, of course, the two stone tables he claimed were first editions of Moses signed by God. However, on the last case the wise collector noted that the true first tablets had been destroyed so they were actually only the Second Edition. A delightful book beautifully printed with the linocuts by Bill Jackson whose masterful works at all levels in fine printing make this a lovely treasure. Printed often by various book collector clubs this is the most exquisite and limited to 150 copies of which this is number 35. Printed on dampened Rives paper and designed by Neil Shaver. A fine copy with pastedown label on ¼ brown cloth over marbled paper boards.
