    Thomas N. Lindsey, et al

    1849 KENTUCKY CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION SIGNATURE BOOK with SIGNATURES of 95 COUNTY REPRESENTATIVES, plus Sergeant at Arms, Reporters, etc. The Constitutional Convention signatory Sign In notebook was owned by THOMAS N. LINDSEY, member of the notable LINDSEY FAMILY of FRANKFORT KENTUCKY. Thomas N. Lindsey was the Representative of Franklin County, Kentucky. His signature is on the backside of the first page. The Signature Book is 3x5 inches and filled with blank paper. Lacking the front cover, however the spine covering and rear cover are present, as are all the inner pages. It appears likely that Thomas N. Lindsey was responsible for getting the signatures of the attending Representatives and others at the Kentucky Constitutional Convention of 1849 (that led to the…

    1849 KENTUCKY CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION SIGNATURE BOOK with SIGNATURES of 95 COUNTY REPRESENTATIVES, plus Sergeant at Arms, Reporters, etc. The Constitutional Convention signatory Sign In notebook was owned by THOMAS N. LINDSEY, member of the notable LINDSEY FAMILY of FRANKFORT KENTUCKY. Thomas N. Lindsey was the Representative of Franklin County, Kentucky. His signature is on the backside of the first page. The Signature Book is 3x5 inches and filled with blank paper. Lacking the front cover, however the spine covering and rear cover are present, as are all the inner pages. It appears likely that Thomas N. Lindsey was responsible for getting the signatures of the attending Representatives and others at the Kentucky Constitutional Convention of 1849 (that led to the adoption of the Constitution of 1850). He signed his name clearly on the verso of the first page, and I believe also on the back cover though that signature is very difficult to see. Though the notebook pages were blank, Lindsey wrote 3 numbers on a page up to number 100, leaving space by each number where Representatives signed in and identified themselves by county. 94 Representatives signed in and most wrote the county they represented below their signature, some also wrote the city they were from. The spaces beside numbers 95-100 are blank. However, Thomas N. Lindsey, the representative from Franklin County, signed at the front as noted above, meaning that this notebook contains a total of 95 signatures of the Constitutional Convention Representatives. Many of the signatures are accompanied with handwritten salutations: "Your friend" "Yours respectfully" etc. In addition to the 95 Representatives, there are signatures of the Sergeant at Arms, Clerk, Door Keeper, Deputy, 5 Reporters, and the Minister of the Gospel. I have been able to fully identify all but 5 of the 95 Representatives through a combination of their signatures and the counties they identified themselves with. There is not, unfortunately, enough room here to list them all, but I have all the identified Representatives names along with counties represented, so if you are interested just email me. In addition to the signatures of 95 Representatives, this Sign-in / Signatory Book contains the signature of the Clerk (Secretary of the Convention), Sergeant at Arms, Door Keeper, five reporters, and that of the Minister of the Gospel. The second to last page, following a number of blank pages, has the names and addresses of several Lindsey family members, perhaps put there by Thomas N. Lindsey so that this book could be passed down from one family member to another as an important historic keepsake? GOOD CONDITION. Front cover missing, as noted above, some creasing and edge chipping to the first page, the rear inner hinge is split but holding well, otherwise the pages are solid, well bound, and all the signatures and writing is bright and clear. The 1850 Kentucky Constitution was extremely PRO SLAVERY. You can read about the 1850 Kentucky Constitution and the 1849 Kentucky Constitutional Convention on many sites on the Internet.

The paper will be sent folded, as was its normal state. About THE INDEPENDENT, NEW YORK (excerpted from Wikipedia): ******The Independent was a weekly newspaper

    published in New York City between 1848 and 1928. It was founded in order to promote Congregationalism and was also an important voice in support of abolitionism and women's suffrage. From its founding in 1848 until 1861 The Independent was edited by a team of three prominent Congregational ministers: Joseph Parrish Thompson, Richard Salter Storrs, and Leonard Bacon. It was published and financed by a group of New York businessmen led by Henry C. Bowen of the silk wholesaling firm Bowen & McNamee. The editorial policy was strongly antislavery, which hurt the magazine's circulation initially, but it improved through the 1850s to reach 35,000 by the beginning of the American Civil War. In 1861 HENRY WARD BEECHER, who had been a regular contributor to the magazine, became its editor. His assistant editor, Theodore Tilton, succeeded Beecher as editor in February 1863.******

    1870 CHICAGO CITY DIRECTORY JUST BEFORE the GREAT CHICAGO FIRE of 1871

    EDWARDS' Thirteenth Annual DIRECTORY of the Inhabitants, Institutions, Incorporated Companies, and Manufacturing Establishments of the CITY OF CHICAGO embracing a Complete Business Directory for 1870.

    A directory of every resident and business in CHICAGO in 1870. Everything changed after the GREAT CHICAGO FIRE of 1871.

    Published by Richard Edwards Publishers, 164 South Clark Street, CHICAGO, 1870. This is the original, vintage directory.

    Hardcovers, professionally rebound in black pebbled faux leather covers, gilt spine title label, 6x9 inches, thick, 1141 pages plus numerous pages of ads at the front and rear.

    These directories were produced as advertising vehicles, so there are ads throughout, many with illustrations.

    Originally from the collection of Charles F. Gunther. The bottom of the title page has a small blind-stamp that reads: "Charles F. Gunther / Memorial / Chicago Historical Society" which is where he donated his large library, many volumes of which have been deaccessioned over the years to make space for other items. His business was destroyed in the 1871 Chicago fire. Read a bit about him at the end of this listing

    GOOD CONDITION: The rebound covers with gilt titling on the spine are sturdy and attractive; internally, there is tape repair to the first page (a page of ads) and a few other pages here and there, two leaves consisting of pages 367/368 and 369/370 were reattached with white cloth tape neatly applied to the gutter between pages 368 and 369, page 369 has a large piece of clear tape (now browned) on its face but the text is clearly legible beneath; otherwise tight, bright, clean, clear and unmarked. Clearly someone wanted to make sure this important directory stayed well bound and complete.

    An original, vintage, 1870 Chicago City Directory. A treasure trove of pre-fire genealogy.

    About Charles Frederick Gunther (from Find A Grave):

    ******Charles F. Gunther was a confectionery manufacturing magnate who created the "Cracker Jacks" confection, and is credited with introducing caramel to the American populace. A native of Germany, he founded a candy business in Chicago, Illinois that was completely destroyed by the 1871 Chicago Fire. He rebuilt the business with an even larger candy factory, which became a great success. In 1893 he introduced Cracker Jacks, a confection that combined popcorn, peanuts and molasses. He amassed great wealth from his business, which in his later years he used to collect historical and odd artifacts, many pertaining to the Civil War and the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln.******

The Sutro Library was (and to a large part still is) a treasure trove of genealogical books originally collected by Adolph Sutro and donated to the City of San Francisco. The collection was pretty much neglected by the City until, in 2012 the City gave the collection to the library of San Francisco State University. Before and after the move to SFSU quite a few volumes from the Sutro genealogical library were, sadly, deaccessioned so that the collection would fit it into its new space. In its new home at SFSU the Sutro Library is still considered to have the best genealogical collection west of Salt Lake City, and is now much better cared for, it's just not as large as it was. Once these wonderful deaccessioned Sutro genealogy books find new homes they will likely not be seen again for some time. FAIR CONDITION: The spine cloth is covered with clear tape, the front and rear boards are rubbed, scraped, and worn through at the edges, nonetheless these original covers are still doing their job. Internally, the front and rear inner hinges have split but have been repaired / reinforced with white cloth tape (the Sutro library was known for trying to keep their volumes original and complete), there are ex Sutro and related library stamps and marks as noted above;

Before and after the move to SFSU quite a few volumes from the Sutro genealogical library were, sadly, deaccessioned so that the collection would fit it into its new space. In its new home at SFSU the Sutro Library is still considered to have the best genealogical collection west of Salt Lake City, and is now much better cared for, it is just not as large as it was. Once these wonderful deaccessioned Sutro genealogy books find new homes they will likely not be seen again for some time. CONDITION: The covers are worn, the spine covering has a shelving label and is pulled with small tears at its ends, the boards are worn through at the edges and corners, and the boards are rubbed, scraped and have some toning and soiling; nonetheless the covers are original and are doing their job. Internally, the front and rear hinges are cracked but holding, there are Sutro library stamps and marks as noted above, the ink stamp of "ADDRESSING CO. OF N.Y." is stamped on the top margin of a number of pages, the title page of the directory, following 16 pages of ads, is worn, scraped and has some closed tape repairs at its gutter edge, the text block is split at a few places where the book was over opened but always remains well bound, there are some small tears, chips and marks here and there, and the pages are all lightly toned, otherwise a complete and solid copy with printing that is bright and clear. Did I mention that the ads are really cool? An Original SALEM & VICINITY City Directory from 1905. A treasure trove of Witch Town Genealogy. About the SUTRO LIBRARY (from where this book was deaccessioned): ******The Sutro Library holds the original collection of Adolph Sutro (1830-1898), California businessman and San Francisco mayor. The library has a large collection of publications and items dating from the 13th to the 21st centuries. It also has one of the largest genealogy collections in the U.S. Adolph Sutro's heirs donated his collection to the California State Library in 1913 with the requirement that the collection stay within the city of San Francisco. After operating in various locations in the city for almost 100 years, the Sutro Library moved to a permanent home at San Francisco State University in 2012.****** INTERNATIONAL BUYERS PLEASE NOTE: This book is heavy and will require substantial additional shipping charges. After placing your order you will be notified of the additional charges and be able to accept or reject them before your payment is processed.

    Though the autographs in the book are all dated 1941, the autograph book itself was likely published in 1939 because the first 7 pages are photographs of the 1939 NEW YORK WORLD'S FAIR. These are followed by a photograph of the school building and the school's principal. Then comes the autograph section.

    Some of the kids who signed and left comments in the book include: Harriet Rothberg, Lorraine Olanoff, Seymour Boom, Sol Wishnick, Meyer Meltzer, Seymour Weintraub, David Simon, Frieda Scharfstein, and many others.

    The owner of the autograph book was named Murray, though some referred to him as "Moish or Moe".

    The autograph book is in VERY GOOD condition, all the pages are tight, bright, clean and clear. The zippered case is sturdy and functions well, but the gilt embossing on the front cover has substantially faded.
