  • 1966 A HORSE BREEDER'S BINDER w/150-200 Handwritten & Official Sheets w/ information on MARES BRED by Russell Smith 1966 A HORSE BREEDER'S BINDER w/150-200 Handwritten & Official Sheets w/ information on MARES BRED
    Russell Smith

    Three Ring Binder filled with Handwritten Notes and Official Record Sheets on Mares Bred (Pacific Coast Quarter Horses) during 1965 and 1966. Horse names include: BLUE CACTUS, Jesse Bar, BLUE LEDGER, Blue Miller, BOLD MINUTE, (Copay?) Coleen, CAT SOX, and many many MORE. For each horse, or perhaps for each time a mare is bred, there is a page with some handwritten notes followed by what appears to be an official page filled with small boxes with handwritten code letters in many of the boxes (I assume breeders know what the code letters stand for). Approximately 150 - 200 total sheets, meaning 75-100 pages of notes with 75-100 official sheets with handwritten letter codes. There is no definitive information on…

Approximately 150 - 200 total sheets, meaning 75-100 pages of notes with 75-100 official sheets with handwritten letter codes. There is no definitive information on the binder's owner, perhaps RUSSELL SMITH because there is a personal letter (apparently unrelated to horse breeding) laid-in the front on his letterhead which reads: "Russell Smith / R-S / Registered Quarter Horses / Paicines, California." Russell Smith was actively involved in the PCQHA, so it would make sense that the binder was his. However, the letter is dated 1955 and the horse information is from 1965-1966, so... GOOD condition, some of the pages have pulled away from the 3 rings and are torn at the holes, but they remain in their proper order; otherwise the pages are bright, clean, clear and fully legible. An interesting look at Quarter Horse Breeding in Northern California.

    Sydney Pollock, et al

    OSTS & BUDGET BREAKDOWN for the filming of THE SCALPHUNTERS in MEXICO. Includes all costs for an expected 66 day shoot in Mexico. The date of the budget breakdown is 1/25/67, with photography started on 2/23/67. The film was released by United Artists on 4/2/68, more than a year after this working budget.

The date of the budget breakdown is 1/25/67, with photography started on 2/23/67. The film was released by United Artists on 4/2/68, more than a year after this working budget.

    The film was produced by Norlan Productions / Bristol Pictures. It was directed by Sydney Pollack, and starred Burt Lancaster.

    Approximately 70 photocopied 8.5x14 inch pages, printed on one side only, 2-hole punched at the top, bound with a metal bracket, held in a manila folder. (Photocopying was, and often still is, how original copies of working budgets, with changes, were quickly produced and distributed to studios, producers, agents, directors, and others involved in a motion picture production.)

    Every page has detailed information regarding the film's budget, including costs of extras, gaffers, stars, makeup and hairdressing, set designs, equipment, etc. etc. etc. This was truly a working budget, with white-out changes here and there throughout as cost estimates changed.

    The budget pages are in VERY GOOD condition, lightly age toned, some signs of handling, and some white-out changes here and there (as noted above), otherwise the pages are bright, clean, clear and unmarked. The manila folder holding the budget breakdown has creases, wear, and some small stains.

    A wonderful and intimate look at the breakdown of every cost involved in the production of a major motion picture in 1968.

    About THE SCALPHUNTERS (from Wikipedia):

    ******The Scalphunters is a 1968 American Western film starring Burt Lancaster, Ossie Davis and Telly Savalas. The film was directed by Sydney Pollack, with the score written by Elmer Bernstein.

From Wikipedia: "On the morning of January 21, 1976, two Concordes, one each from British Airways and Air France, took off simultaneously on what would be the aircraft's first commercial supersonic flights with fare paying passengers."

    The publicity information sheets consist of seven 8.5x11 inch sheets, single stapled together at the upper left corner, first page on Concorde letterhead, printed on one side only. The sheets are dated November 19,1974. The first page begins with "CONCORDE VISITS PACIFIC NORTHWEST FOR ICING TRIALS". The sheets also include information on areas of concern for both cities and airports: Sonic Boom, Airport Noise, Engine Emissions, etc. Clearly these are meant to promote the Concorde..

    There are SIX large 12x16 inch printed color photographs, printed on glossy heavy-weight paper. Each has a caption at the bottom. (1) Concorde - on cold-weather trials at Fairbanks, Alaska. (2) Concorde - at Caracas Airport, Venezuela. (3) Concorde: arriving at Dulles Airport, Washington. (4) Concorde - at Logan International Airport, Boston. (5) Concorde - landing at Miami International Airport. (6) Concorde - flight deck view of a landing approach.

    There is also a 3x16 inch advertising banner. The Banner states: "Produced and Printed in England by Davis, Gibson Advertising Limited". Arthur Gibson, of said firm, is considered one of the best aviation photographers of the 20th century. His firm was hired by British Aircraft to promote the Concorde.

    Everything is in VERY GOOD condition, bright, clean, solid, unmarked.

There is a paper label taped onto the front cover that has the handwritten title: "Genealogical Records / Muriel P. Owen / Sonoma, CA". 38 of the notebook pages have handwritten genealogical notes relating to the descendants of Walter Palmer. The pages seem to be somewhat alphabetically arranged by family last names, though many are not in their proper order. Family names include Wakeman, Cogswell - Willis, Dailey, Herschker (Husker), Janisch, Mead, Owen, Wells, Truesdell, and others. Also contains approximately 20 pieces of loose relevant ephemera, including letters from relatives supplying information about the family, and various handwritten notes. Condition: There are creases, signs of handling, pages pulling from the rings, etc., but all the writing remains clear and fully legible.

Approximately 65 pages have either writing or sketches, mostly sketches with associated notes. Most of the sketches are on only one side of the sheets, with the back sides blank.

Unfortunately I cannot make out whose signature it is, and that signature is the only clue I could find as to who this sketchbook actually belonged to. Also laid-in are two Gibson Palermo photo cards, one announcing its Spring Summer '81 collection, the other simply stating "Gibson Palermo" beneath a

    close-up of a blazer. Again, the sketches in the book appear to be by one of the Company's fashion designers. These are early sketches, in pencil. They certainly appear professional in nature. The sketches seem to be from 1982-83 (there are dates on a couple pages) and seem to be in preparation for an upcoming season. Sketches include early studies for a Vest Dress, Jersey Sweater, Pattern Silk, Cumberbund in Wool Crepe, Long Camisole, Cashmere and Jersey Strapdress, and much, much more. Condition: The covers are well worn and coming loose and the binding is shaky, but the covers are still hanging on. The sketchbook pages are very nice, clean, with pencil drawings and annotations that are clear. The laid in signed sketches are creased and worn, especially around the edges. The sketchbook provides a nice look into the thought process of a high-end fashion designer of the early 1980s.

    AFRICAN-AMERICAN PENTECOSTALS asked for FORGIVENESS by WHITES

    Two rare pieces of ephemera related to the MEMPHIS MIRACLE, a conference where the WHITE PENTECOSTAL CHURCH asked AFRICAN-AMERICANS for Forgiveness, and set a path towards interacial reconciliation.

    (1) PENTECOSTAL PARTNERS - A Reconciliation Strategy for 21st Century Ministry. Memphis, Tennessee, October 17-19, 1994.

    A two-fold, six-panel (three on front, three on rear), 8.5x11 inch, announcement for the conference.

A reconciliation dialogue will be open to the 200 participating leaders and pastors from both branches of the Movement and 1000 invited observers."

    The conference of the ALL WHITE Pentecostal and Charismatic Church leaders and the ALL BLACK Pentecostal and Charismatic Church leaders went well. Some of the feet of Black church leaders were washed by White church leaders. The ALL WHITE and ALL BLACK Pentecostal Churches unified and became interracial under one umbrella, the Pentecostal Charismatic Churches of North America.

    This important meeting became known as THE MEMPHIS MIRACLE.

    CONDITION: Both items are in VERY GOOD condition, just some signs handling and use, still solid, bright, clean, clear and unmarked.

    About the MEMPHIS MIRACLE (from Wikipedia):

    ******The Memphis Miracle was a 1994 meeting in Memphis, Tennessee, where representatives of Pentecostal and Charismatic denominations and churches came together to form the Pentecostal/Charismatic Churches of North America (PCCNA), an interdenominational and racially inclusive partnership. The PCCNA was created to replace the Pentecostal Fellowship of North America (PFNA) which was formed in 1948 by White Pentecostal Churches, but excluded Black Pentecostal groups. The PCCNA was created to remedy the situation, and it was at the Memphis meeting that the PFNA and its members apologized to the Black Pentecostal bodies.******

    Approximately 85 photographs and real photo postcards of female and male College of

    Emporia students, circa 1909-1915.

    Likely the collection of DELLA PEASE and/or JOHN ELLIOTT ROSS, as most of the photos are of her and her friends, and some others are of him and his friends. The two College of Emporia students may have taken these snaps of each other and their friends, and then combined the photos into this gathering when they later got married. The marriage turned Della Pease into Della Pease Ross. They both graduated from the College of Emporia in 1912. Most of the photos seem to be from that year or earlier. One photo is very old, the backside info indicates it is a photo of the parents of one or the other. Della Pease and John Ross were married in 1916, a few years after graduating.

    The photos are various sizes, from very small up to 3.5x5.5 inches. Included are many real photo postcards that are truly RPPC because the images are mostly of the students themselves. Good condition, some with edge wear, some fading, signs of light handling, overall clear images and legible information where found on the backsides and margins.

    Rich in KANSAS GENEALOGY. What makes this Emporia Kansas photo collection interesting is that many have the FULL NAMES of the people in the photo written on the backside, and sometimes information about where they are and what they are doing.. Some of the names include: Della Pease, John E. Ross, Katherine Polk, Claire Boyle, George Merritt Polk, Grace Smith, and many, many more. Some of the photo postcards are unused, others were sent and have writing on the backsides, all relate to Della Pease, John E. Ross, or others of the College of Emporia.

    In the photos Della Pease and her friends seem to be doing the usual fun college stuff. The back of one of the photos reads: "A picnic supper at the Chautauqua grounds at one of the girls' tents. We had a great time. Can you find me?" After graduating in 1912 it wouldn't always be fun for Della Pease or her school mate and future husband John Elliott Ross...

    About JOHN ELLIOTT ROSS (from his Obituary in the Princeton Theological Seminary Alumni Report of 1920-1929):

    JOHN ELLIOTT ROSS, b.1883 d.1925, was born near Smith Center, Kansas, son of Wilson Erskine and Mary Frances (Elliott) Ross. He made a public confession of his faith in the United Presbyterian Church of Sterling, Kansas. His preparatory studies were pursued in the Franklin Academy, Kansas, and he graduated from the COLLEGE OF EMPORIA in 1912. He entered the Seminary at Princeton in the fall of the same year, remaining more than two years. He completed his theological course in the Western Theological Seminary, from which he graduated in 1916. He was licensed by the Presbytery of Osborne and ordained by the same Presbytery, September 19, 1916. He sailed for India October 10, 1916, and engaged in missionary work at Ludhiana, India, and then at Saharanpur, from 1918 to 1923. He returned to this country on furlough, remaining a year from 1923 to 1924. He died January 15, 1925, in Kasur, Punjab, India, of heart failure, while sleeping, in the forty-second year of his age. He was buried at Ferozepur, India. He received the degree of A.M. from Princeton University in 1914. He was married August 17, 1916, in Pittsburg, Kansas, to Della Pease, who with two sons survives him.

    About DELLA PEASE ROSS (from her Obituary in the EMPORIA GAZETTE of 10 February 1930):

    Word has been received in Emporia of the death of Mrs. Della Pease Ross, a graduate of the College of Emporia, in 1912. She died Friday, February 7, at the Lahore hospital in India. Her husband, the late John E. Ross, was also a member of the College graduating class of 1912. They had been doing missionary work in India for about 15 years.

    To be clear, the photos in this collection are all pre India missionary work, when there was lots of laughter in their and their friends' eyes.

Conant" (Conant Family Foundation?); AND MANY MORE signed by various individuals working at a particular company, or not associated with any company. There are also copies of some of the letters sent out to various individuals and corporate heads. There are also some SIGNED typed notes, letters and hand written notes from William Zellerbach regarding various donations and letters received in response to the appeal for donations. In addition there are letters from JOHN PAUL, the Director of the UNCF Northern California Campaign, asking William Zellerbach if he would agree to be Chairman of the 1970 campaign, and telling him that it would take little work on his part (i.e. all the form letters would be written and printed for him, needing only his signature), and telling him that his name as Chairman would be of great help. It is clear that William Zellerbach took his position seriously, personalizing some of the appeals, and suggesting names for solicitation. The 1970 Northern California UNCF Campaign goal was $300,000 (equal to approximately $2 million today). The archive contains: (1) 45 SIGNED LETTERS written TO William J. Zellerbach in response to his (as Chairman for 1970) appeal for donations to the United Negro College Fund. Many of these letters are stapled to their envelopes. A few of the letters have handwritten notes on them by Bill Zellerbach. (2) 5 SIGNED typed letters BY William Zellerbach TO John Paul, Director of the UNCF campaign. The letters are Zellerbach's letterhead. They relate to various matters of the campaign. (3) 9 letters, some carbon copies, some original, regarding the recruiting of William Zellerbach to be Chairman of the 1970 campaign, his acceptance the position, and his approval of the form letter to be sent out. (4) A couple draft documents with numerous handwritten notes on them regarding how donations are to be handled ( i.e. accepted, put into the bank, etc.) (5) And some unsigned copies of solicitation letters that had been sent to various executives. All the letters are in generally GOOD condition, showing various signs of handling, but all remain bright and fully legible. A couple of the draft documents concerning the handling of donations were pieced together in strips, they are browned and show glue stains. A wonderful look at the Corporate and Individual Philanthropy in Northern California in 1970. The SIGNATURES of many of the areas Movers and Shakers make this quite a rare artifact. The generosity (and sometimes the amazing lack of it) is quite interesting.

    EIGHT Original 1903 FOURTH OF JULY PARADE PHOTOGRAPHS from the San Francisco Bay Area Contra Costa Gold Rush Town of ANTIOCH. Each large photograph is different yet connected, like a parade!

    The photographs were taken at the Antioch, California Fourth of July Parade along Second street across from the Arlington Hotel (of true crime fame in 1906 but that's another story) which is next door to the Antioch Shoe Store (R.H. Wall, Proprietor) with the edge of the L. Meyers Store showing farther down the street. From this same vantage point each richly detailed photograph shows different scenes of the parade. Festive horse drawn carriages, Western riders, beautifully dressed spectators, decorated floats, marching bands, flower and flag draped scenery.

Festive horse drawn carriages, Western riders, beautifully dressed spectators, decorated floats, marching bands, flower and flag draped scenery.

    Eight (8) original 7" x 10" card mounted photographs circa 1903. One mount has HOIEN, ANTIOCH, CAL embossed on the front, the rest are unmarked.

    VERY GOOD CONDITION: The photographs are bright and clean, the card mounts have light edgewear, 1903 is written in pencil on the front bottom margins, one mount has a penned number beneath the penciled date, one has a corner chip, the backs of the mounts have black paper remnants from being removed from an album, and a few have a penned name to the back top margin, and the mounts are slightly warped, otherwise a unique collection of original photographs.

    The San Francisco Bay Area town of Antioch is one of the oldest towns in California. Founded in 1850 just after gold was discovered in the region, it was incorporated in 1872 and flourished as a mining, farming, and dairy community tied to the region by the railroad and deep water ports.

    CONDITION: Everything is generally in VERY GOOD condition, just mildly used - the photos are solid and bright, the signatures of Bradbury and Christie are bold, the Pinewood Studios promo sheet is folded else sharp and presentable, the rare one-sheet film poster has folds as normal but is brilliant.

    With the unusual FILM POSTER, the SIGNED BRADBURY Film Release Pamphlet, the SIGNED JULIE CHRISTIE Film Flyer, the LOBBY CARD, the HALSMAN photograph, the 21 8x10 photographs, and more, this is quite a UNIQUE and RARE gathering. Some items I have never seen before.

From the front pastedown: "With the above exceptions, all the Accounts in this RED BOOK... are in the Schedule made out by MEYLERT for JUDGE READ". FILLED with NAMES and TRANSACTIONAL ACCOUNTS of HUNDREDS of Notable PENNSYLVANIANS. Dates run from 1830 to 1883, the year of death of MICHAEL MEYLERT who was settling the estate. Leather Bound Ledger Book, 5.5x7.5, 209 pages. All pages, including endpapers, filled in with manuscript writing and accounting. An important look at the estate of JUDGE JOHN M. READ and his extensive list of Creditors and Associates. READS LIKE A WHO'S WHO IN PENNSYLVANIA at the time. Each account lists the name of the creditor or debtor. Transactions are listed by date. When settled the accounts were lined out in blue. The amounts of MONEY and LAND settled in these accounts is quite significant for the time. Many of the accounts were passed on from one deceased person / estate to another to another, with all being named (e.g. one account title: Chester Bucks late, Martin Blodier late, Irad Goodell late, Ezekiel Barr). Pennsylvania counties involved include: Luzerne, Lycoming, Sullivan, Philadelphia, and others. Named Accounts in this Ledger include William Nesbitt, Daniel and John Brewster, Clark Camp, Henry McCracken, Francis Strathers, Hiram Washburn, Archibald Snell, Joseph Snell, Samuel Kellum, Isaac McPherson, William F. Middaugh, Eli Gibbs, Rosanna Barr, Michael Fee, Philip Steel, Joel Miller, George Hunsinger, Christian Hunsinger, Daniel S. Robinson, Levi Walker, Harry L. Pepper, Michael McIntyre, Ellis Dunlap, Abel Platt, Calvin W. Churchill, Abraham Van Fleet, William Sweet, and many more. The names deserve researching. The few I researched were significant, including "Isaac McPherson, late," who was a correspondent of Thomas Jefferson. The accounts are not arranged alphabetically, however there is a manuscript alphabetical index of all the names on the early pages. LOTS of names, lots of cross-referencing. The accounting contains detailed notes regarding what was paid and what it was paid for, exact dates of payments, what land transacted and the land values, etc. Many of the accounts also have notes, some regarding relatives who were unhappy with settlements and who had to be informed of the exact details by "M" (Michael Meylert). Condition: The covers are worn, scraped and rubbed, worn through at the corners and spine ends, with the leather covering peeling at some places; nonetheless these original leather covers are still doing their job well. The binding is shaky but holding, the inner hinges have fully split at a number of places exposing the inner binding and threads that still hold the pages together. There is a stain with shorelining to the front margin area of the first and last 15 or so pages, dark on the endpapers growing lighter until it disappears, the manuscript writing is always legible beneath. The manuscript writing is clear and written legibly, it is lighter on some pages than others but always readable except on 2 pages that are very soiled, like those two pages were stepped on with muddy boots back in the 1800s. An important and

    rare look at the genealogy of notable families of Pennsylvania that had business or other financial ties to Judge John M. Read. You can find a lot about JOHN MEREDITH READ and about MICHAEL MEYLERT by searching various Pennsylvania Historical websites.
