Frederick Widder (1801-1865) was a Canada Company Commissioner, son of a Canada Company London director, with family connections to royalty and the right Anglican connections. His moderate approach and financial innovations for the Canada Company would give him good standing with the pioneers of the Huron Tract and the reformers of Upper Canada. Widder's administrative talents and dedication to hard work allowed him to overshadow Thomas Mercer Jones and take the lead in the Canada Company. Widder's home, Lyndhurst, became a social hub of Toronto. Widder's wife, Elizabeth, entertained in style providing upper-class residents of York with refined entertainments redolent of British aristocratic and middle-class life.

    [Broadsides]: 10 Hip Hop Flyers by ESQUIRE, Buddy

    New York, 1983. Fine. A collection of 10 early and scarce New York hip hop party flyers from 1979-1983 designed by Buddy "The King of Flyers" Esquire. The flyers feature some of the earliest hip hop innovators including Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Four, Grand Wizard Theodore, Treacherous 3 (with Kool Moe D), Cold Crush Bros., and others. Printed on a range of different color sheets, typically measuring 8.5 x 11", with one measuring 6.5" x 8.5", and another measuring 14" x 8" and printed on both sides. Overall about fine with some very light edgewear and one with two light creases from being folded.Hip hop grew out of the party scene in and around the South Bronx and evolved as it spread across New York in the mid- to late-1970s and early 1980s with many of the innovators clustered together and often sharing the same bill. Most of the early performances were held at small, local get-togethers at parks, boys clubs, police athletic organizations, and roller skating rinks. Without means of mainstream advertising these events relied on flyers distributed by hand around the neighborhood, posted on store windows, and given to students in order to tout the next show.Nearly all the hip hop flyers were handmade by performers, promoters, or artists from the local neighborhoods. The premiere maker was Buddy Esquire, a former graffiti writer, who crafted his first flyer in the summer of 1977. Following a stint painting denim jeans and jackets, he began to seriously focus on flyers starting in November 1978, producing more than 300 flyers over his career. Many of his earliest flyers featured various typefaces with increasingly elaborate borders in a style he referred to as "neo deco." Later he began introducing photos and artwork to the flyers, often created by his brother, Eddie Ed.Esquire's very earliest flyers were produced via mimeograph but that gave way to photo offset printing paid for by show promoters who started to organize larger and more elaborate shows. His flyers were usually produced in little over a day for shows that occurred the same week. They were not meant to last past the show they were advertising and most were discarded immediately, making any hip hop flyer from this era quite rare.A wonderful collection of flyers documenting the early development of what is now considered one of the most dominant musical genres.Flyers:1. 1979 Sweethearts Ball. 1979.
