Documents range in size between about 8 1/4" x 13" and 8" x 3 1/2."

As an entire collection, the documents are clean and intact overall but have slight age toning and the occasional mark or small stain. A Very Good collection. The Mohawk Valley Register was a weekly newspaper based in Fort Plain, New York. It was published from 1854-1921. The Mohawk Valley Register was actually an iteration of the Fort Plain Journal, the latter of which was founded in 1836. The Fort Plain Journal changed ownership a few times before being acquired by W. Clayton Wendell and Harrison Stansel who renamed it the Mohawk Valley Register. Among the newspaper's sequential owners and publishers were Lorenzo Crounse, Charles Bradbury, and Angell Matthewson. In the first sales agreement (1859), Charles Bradbury buys half interest in the Mohawk Valley Register for $400 from Lorenzo Crounse. This agreement is signed by borth Bradbury and Crounse. In another agreement (1861), Angell Matthewson buys the same half interest in the newspaper from Peter G. Webster, who had earlier purchased it from Bradbury. This agreement is signed once by Matthewson and twice by Webster. In the third agreement (1861), Webster sells his mortgage from Mattewson to Charles Rivers. This agreement is signed three times by Webster and once by Rivers. Also included in this collection are nineteen receipts issued to Matthewson and having to do with the operation of the newspaper (1860-1863). Receipts are signed by Crounse, Bradbury, Rivers, Webster, and different members of the Erwin family. Angell Mattewson (1837-1913) was involved in other New York newspapers and served with distinction in the Civil War. He was a captain of the Union Army. It is known that Mattewson lived in Parsons, Kansas from about 1871 onward. There, he was active in the Grand Army of the Republic (GAR), also known as the "Antietam" post.

    No Binding. Condition: Collectible-Good. Original black-and-white photograph showing a flock of sheep in a field in Southern California. No date, circa 1896-1900. 8" x 5." Photographer's stamp in purple ink on back: "F. H. Maude & Co., Landscape Photographers. 211 W. First St., Los Angeles, Cal." "F. H. Maude Co. Photo." also printed in lower-right corner on front. Photograph is clean and intact overall but there are two tiny chips on right corners, slight edge wear, a thin vertical band of fading on left edge, and two spots of discoloration which are visible on front and back. A Good copy. A beautiful photograph showing many sheep on a grass field in Southern California. The firm credited with taking this photo was F. H. Maude & Company. F. H. Maude & Company was founded by Frederic Hamer Maude (1858-1959), an English-American photographer. Maude was born in England and had initially entered into the field of medicine. He earned his medical degree in 1883 but soon changed his career plans to become a photographer. In 1887, Maude immigrated from England to California by traveling through Canada. He first chose Ventura as his new place of residence, but by 1895, he had settled in Los Angeles. By that same year, Maude had also purchased the photography firm of C. B. Waite at West First Street, presumably the same address as stamped on the back of this photo. Much of Waite's collection of photos showed life in Southern California. Maude's own business, F. H. Maude & Co., was built off of Waite's company. It was common practice at the time for photographers to use their own imprint on other photographers' photos upon acquisition, so it is possible that another photographer actually took this photo. It was also documented that Maude sold photos by Waite and other local photographers. While Maude became well-known for his acquisitions of other photographers' work, he was a talented photographer in his own right. Maude own portfolio featured scenes of the American Southwest, and he also served twice as the president of the LA Camera Club. It is thought that he retired from the photography business around 1924 since this was the last time his name appeared in a local registry with an associated profession.

    No Binding. Condition: Collectible-Fine. A collection of three original black-and-white photographs of Stanford University's Inner Quad. Beautiful ambiance to each photo with misty overcast lighting and water covering the pavement of the courtyard from a recent rain. Each photo is mounted on medium or dark gray matboard. No date, circa 1899. The following are measurements for each pair of photo and mat, numbered 1-3. Photo 1: 4 1/2" x 3"; Matboard 1: 7" x 5." Photo 2: 4 1/2" x 2 3/4"; Matboard 2: 7 1/4" x 4 3/4." Photo 3: 3" x 3"; Matboard 3: 5" x 5 1/2." Handwriting in pencil on back reads, "Stanford 1899." Each photo and matboard are virtually pristine and intact except for slight age toning. Fine copies. A collection of three photographs showing the Inner Quad of Stanford University with its constituent "oases" (planters with palm trees and other desert plants), arcades, and one of the main arched entrances to the courtyard. Photo 1 shows an angled view of the arched entrance, the covered walkways, a few of planters, and a sky with slight sepia tones. Photo 2 shows a straight-shot view of what appears to be the same archway in Photo 1 and planters pictured on either side. Photo 3 was taken from under the arcade with one of its arches framing a view of the rain-covered courtyard with a planter at center. A sense of silence fills each scene as there are no people pictured in the courtyard. If the date of the photo is correct, a possible reason for this is that the Inner Quad had not yet been completed. The Inner Quad was completed the same year as the university's opening in 1891. The Quad, with its sandstone walls and red tiled roofs, among other elements, is an excellent showcase of Stanford University's signature architectural style inspired by Romanesque and Mission Revival architecture. The overall campus of Stanford University and its Main Quad (comprising the Inner and Outer Quads) were designed by landscape architect Frank Law Olmsted (1822-1903), a landscape architect who had co-designed New York's Central Park with Calvert Vaux; Calvin A. Coolidge (1858-1936), an architect who was a partner of Shepley, Rutan & Coolidge; and Leland Stanford (1824-1893), the founder of the university who had it built in memory of his only child, Leland Stanford, Jr. (1868-1884).

    No Binding. Condition: Collectible-Near Fine (Near Fi. Original literary broadside printed in black ink on light beige paper. 13" x 19 1/2." Back colophon: "This edition is an expanded version of 'Earth Poetry' which first appeared in the Sierra Club Bulletin, July 1970. Designed & printed for Oyez by Graham Mackintosh, July 1971. Photograph by Allen Say." Based on the back colophon, there may have been other materials included but only the broadside is present. Broadside is virtually pristine and intact except for a few tiny wrinkles and a few small spots of discoloration along spine and inner gutter. A Near Fine copy. An original literary broadside featuring William Everson's essay, "Earth Poetry." This is a philosophical dissertation in which Everson gives his perspective on the relationship between Earth and poetry. Everson believes that Earth can only be saved through poetry and poetic ideas and sentiments such as contemplating nature and viewing it with awe and wonder, similar to the concept of nature being "sublime." Everson expresses his concerns over scientific ecology and argues that a purely scientific approach will never be enough to save the Earth because it is simply another manifestation of man trying to dominate nature. Interspersed among Everson's essay are excerpts from different poems that he feels have captured the essence of what it means to be in balance with nature. William "Bill" Everson (1912-1994), also known as Brother Antonius, was an American poet, literary critic, printer, and teacher. He was part of the San Francisco Renaissance movement.

    No Binding. Condition: Very Good. Original marriage license between two early Sacramento residents, Manuel Lee (1885-1945) and Margaret Rogers (1894-1978). Printed lettering and handwriting in black ink. 15" x 13 1/2." Marriage license is very clean and intact except for a few wrinkles, a few bumps along the edges, and slight age toning. A Very Good copy. A marriage license between Manuel Lee and Margaret Rogers of Sacramento. The license reads that Manuel and Margaret are both residents of Sacramento County and that they got married on May 18, 1912. The two witnesses are named as Frank Lee and Emma Rogers, the latter of whom was one of Margaret's sisters. There are signatures of the Deputy Clerk and the reverend who oversaw the marriage of Manuel and Margaret. There is limited online documentation of Manuel Lee, but Margaret Rogers came from a family who was among the first to arrive in the Pocket area of Sacramento. Margaret's father, Albert Mendes, and his two brothers, John and Joseph Mendes, immigrated to the United States from the island of Pico in the Azores, Portugal. Upon arriving in the U.S., Albert changed his last name to "Rodgers" (with a later spelling change to "Rogers") and John took the surname of "Potter." Joseph retained his original surname of "Mendes." All three brothers made their way to the Pocket area and likely worked as laborers on local ranches to make a living. Albert eventually acquired enough money to buy his own ranch. He married Rose Gear, another immigrant from the Azores. Margaret was one of Albert and Rose's eight children, all of whom were raised on the family ranch. As this marriage certificate shows, Margaret married Manuel in 1912. They had four children, Laverne, Agnes, Gertrude, and Dorothy. However, the couple later divorced, and Margaret married Tony Machado.
