Description:
Includes an early 1963-1964 Vietnam photograph album during the period President Kennedy began to increase in-country U.S. military presence.
This archive consists of official paperwork, certificates, letters, and a photograph album that belonged to Lieutenant Colonel Carl L. Palmer.
The photograph album contains over 50 corner-mounted photographs ranging in size from 3.5" x 5" to 8" x 10". About 25 additional photographs are laid-in. Most of this grouping is in nice shape, however, the photograph album is missing its front cover and many of the images have significant humidity damage. The photographs appear to have been rearranged on the album pages several times.
The documents begin with Palmer's initial World War II physical exam in 1942 and end with a civilian "Reduction in Force" notification in 1976. In between are oaths of office, military school diplomas, promotion certificates, a Purple Heart award, several letters (including one notifying Palmer of a comrade's death in a Vietnam firefight… Read more

Description:
Washington, DC, 1857. Envelope or Cover. Very good. This handbill advertisement measures approximately 8" x 10 and is printed on light blue paper. Its accompanying mailing envelope is addressed "To the Heirs of Mrs. Ruth Bullard." The envelope is franked with a straddle copy of a one-cent blue Franklin stamp (Scott #24) that a previous owner has identified as coming from plate position 100L8. The stamp is tied to the cover with and indistinct circular postmark. Both advertisement and envelope are in nice shape. The advertisement has mailing folds and is loosely mounted to thin cardstock; the adhesive is likely water soluble and the handbill could probably be removed with minimal if any damage. The federal government provided bounty land for those who served in the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, the Mexican War, and Indian wars between 1775 and 1855. It was first offered as an incentive to serve in the military and later as a reward for service. The land could be claimed by veterans or their… Read more

Description:
Detroit: John C. Goodrich, 1895. Envelope or Cover. Good to Very Good. This advertising cover incorporates nine small drawings: five of the toy top and four of Palmer Cox's Brownies playing with the toy top. The envelope is franked with a one-cent blue Franklin stamp (Scott Type A87) that is tied to the cover by a Barry machine cancel.

Making tops was apparently not Goodrich's principal occupation as… Read more

Description:
Cincinnati: Caleb Clark Book & Job Printer, 1865. Wraps. Very good. Complete 24-page pamphlet. Sound binding. Removed from a sammelband so a little rough along the left edge. Minor soiling to the cover, otherwise in nice shape. In 1780, before Kentucky was a state, the Virginia Assembly (perhaps prodded by Governor Thomas Jefferson) chartered Transylvania Seminary, then affiliated with the Episcopal Church, as the first college west of the Allegheny Mountains. It began in a log cabin in Boyle County and moved to Lexington in 1789. Ten years later, it changed its name to Transylvania University. By 1818, it included a medical school, a law school, a divinity school, and a college of arts and sciences. About the same time, Bacon College of Georgetown was established and it soon changed its name to Kentucky University. At the end of the Civil War, both Kentucky University and Transylvania University were in dire financial straits, and the state legislature approved a merger in hopes of solving… Read more

New York: For D.T. Valentine's Manual for 1861 by Geo Haywood, 1861. Disbound. Very good.
