George Washington Partly-printed vellum DS as president

Partly-printed vellum DS as president, signed “G:o Washington,” one page, 7.5 x 3.5, December 20, 1796. Conclusion of a presidential document. In full: “Given under my Hand and the Seal of the United States of America, the twentieth day of December in the year of our Lord one [thou]sand seven hundred and ninety six.” In very good condition, with intersecting folds (one vertical fold passing through a single letter of the signature), scattered foxing, and a charred left side (affecting a few words of the document’s text but not the signature). This document was issued at the end of Washington’s presidency as he was preparing to retire to Mount Vernon, with Vice President John Adams succeeding him as the nation’s leader. It was during this period that he issued his tremendously influential farewell address—first published three months before this document—in which he focused on the importance of national unity, Constitutional law, and isolationism. Despite the damage to the left, the signature area is crisp and clean, presenting a fine example of Washington’s presidential autograph. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.

Thomas H. Ince Signed portrait of the mysterious ‘Father of the Western’

Silent film star, director, producer, and screenwriter (1882–1924). Vintage pearl-finish 7.25 x 9.25 portrait of Ince by Melbourne Spurr, signed in fountain pen, “Thos. H. Ince.” Double-matted to an overall size of 12.5 x 14.5. In very good to fine condition, with scattered creases and surface marks. Though his death was announced to be of natural causes, rumors of foul play were widely circulated, with many claiming that William Randolph Hearst accidentally shot and killed Ince during a party on board his yacht. Given Ince’s importance in Hollywood history and unusual early death, his autographic material is both very collectible and extremely rare. Pre-certified PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.

George Washington rare hand-drawn land survey property near Mount Vernon

Rare hand-drawn land survey conducted by Washington, signed with his initials within the text, “GW,” one page, 5.25 x 9, no date but circa 1785. Washington draws the plat of land on the western edge of his Four Mile Run property in Alexandria, Virginia, about 12 miles north of his famous Mount Vernon estate. At the bottom of the survey, Washington sketches the stream his property was named for, labeling it “Four Mile Run” and “Course laid down by guess.” Perpendicular to the stream he writes, “Where GW comes to the run,” presumably marking the end of his land at the edge of the stream. On a dotted line extending from the center of the river, lengthily describing it: “Course of this line is no. 43½ E[as]t & the reverse So 43½ W[es]t. This dotted line from the hiccory to the run gives and takes about 5½ acres of land.” A solid jagged line drawn through the middle labels various landmarks, including “fallen & rotten hiccory,” “stump within the inclosure,” “red oak,” and “no tree marked.” Intersecting folds and mild overall staining, otherwise fine condition. The 1932 ‘George Washington Atlas’ reproduces Washington’s much broader survey of the entire property he prepared in 1799, the last year of his life, and includes the section detailed in this plat.

Wernher Von Braun pencil sketch of a 3rd Stage Satellite Vehicle

Extraordinary pencil sketch of a “3rd Stage Satellite Vehicle (landed),” drawn by von Braun on a gridded 11 x 8.5 sheet of drafting paper, signed at the bottom in black felt tip, “Wernher von Braun, 1952.” The detailed schematic shows a full-length side view of the ship, labeling the “cargo room” and “seating plan (during glide),” with cutaway diagrams of the “seating plan (during ascent),” “instrument compartment,” “power plant instrum.,” and “flight instruments,” and a view “seen from above,” with the “canopy” and “loading hatch” labeled. Overall creases and wrinkling, and light toning, otherwise fine condition.

Von Braun had helped to organize the First Symposium on Space Flight in New York, out of which arose Collier’s magazine series entitled ‘Man Will Conquer Space Soon,’ a series spanning eight issues. The series detailed von Braun’s plans for manned spaceflight and included articles by the foremost notables of the day with exceptional color illustrations. Von Braun prepared drawings such as this “3rd Stage Satellite Vehicle” as models for the magazine’s artists to ensure that the final illustrations would be scientifically accurate. This stellar drawing is an outstanding depiction of the soon-to-come space age by one of its central figures—a stunning piece. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli and RR Auction COA.

The Doors sign-in sheet for a 1968 Waiting for the Sun recording session

Vintage ballpoint signatures, “J. Morrison,” “John Densmore,” “Robby Krieger,” and “R. Manzarek,” on a 7 x 8.75 guest register page from a Los Angeles recording studio sign-in book, dated January 24, 1968. Vince Treanor, the Doors longtime road manager, signed above the musicians’ signatures, adding the band’s name. Above Treanor’s signature and on the opposite side of the page are signatures of Bee Gees musicians and personnel, including Barry Gibb (2), Maurice Gibb (2), Robin Gibb (2), and Colin Petersen (2). In fine condition.

This recording session for the band’s third album, Waiting for the Sun—which became their first and only number one record—was marred by Morrison’s increased dependence on drugs and alcohol. Earlier in the month, charges stemming from his infamous arrest during a concert in New Haven were dropped, and five days after this recording session he was arrested again after being beaten by security guards outside the Pussycat a’ Go Go, a Las Vegas casino. When the police arrived, they took him in under charges of vagrancy, public drunkenness, and failure to possess sufficient identification. Single items signed by the complete Doors lineup are exceedingly difficult to find, especially from such an important and turbulent period in the band’s existence. Pre-certified Roger Epperson/REAL and RR Auction COA.
