Arthur E. Beane, Jr. I have known Beanie for only 20 years, a small fraction of his 92 years. Most of these have been dedicated in part to collecting New England antiques. Arthur began attending auctions in the Boston area in early 1930s with his father and mentor, Judge Arthur Beane, who instilled in him an interest in American antiques, stamps and Massachusetts stampless covers. Arthur inherited his parents collection and along with it, his fathers love of American history and his unique collecting sensibility and appreciation of old surface and colora rarity in itself for the time. When he married Mary Mimi Elizabeth Clarke, daughter of Herman Frederick Clarke, noted expert on silver, he found the perfect partner with whom he could share his love of New England culture. Over the years, Arthur and Mimi honed their collection to keep only what they most loved at the William Sever House in Kingston, Massachusetts and later, their homes in Duxbury, Massachusetts. Arthur was a longtime colleague and friend of the auctioneer W. Torrey Little of Marshfield, Massachusetts. I am fortunate to know Arthur Beanea true gentleman, a man of his word and deed, a fellow collector, and of course, a snappy dresser and die-hard Boston sports fan. Stephen Fletcher

Lots 356-480 Jim and Bernice Miller of Appleton, Wisconsin, began collecting early Americana in the mid-1960s, traveling first to Ohio and Pennsylvania and later to New England to find fine examples of eighteenth and early nineteenth century American high country furniture and accessories. Over the years, they established long-standing relationships with many dealers, including Roger Bacon, Pam Boynton, Peter Eaton, and Wayne Pratt, among others. In 1970, they designed and built the perfect showcase for their collection, a reproduction Connecticut River Valley saltbox, incorporating salvaged flooring, paneling and brick from New England houses to recreate an authentic setting for the collection. In the mid-70s, they established their own antique dealership, Miller Antiques, and built a loyal Midwestern customer base for fine New England Americana. The business flourished until Bernices death in 1999. The Millers brought a keen appreciation for the history, craftsmanship, and aesthetics of the things they collected. They did not merely collect, but truly loved, respected, and preserved the furniture and accessories they owned, seeing themselves as caretakers of an important legacy. 356.

According to the Utica Observer of April 4, 1837: ...the wind was high from the east and most of the buildings, being of wood (a few have brick fronts), the flames spread with great rapidity, and before the engines could be brought into play, had obtained a mastery that was almost impossible to overcome... The fire consumed a total of thirty-four buildings, most of them merchants, and a handful of private dwellings. The article goes on to say, Undaunted by the disastrous fire, Uticans immediately began the reconstruction of the block...

Initially it was named Pemberton Square, but the name changed Scollay Square when Phillips Square changed its name to Pemberton Square. The area was vibrant and home to merchants, and theatres, including the Howard Theatre, which offered vaudeville, Shakespearean plays, and minstrel shows. In the mid-20th century the area became increasingly seedy with several burlesque houses catering to sailors on leave, low income residents, and college students. The city planned for a renewal of the area and it eventually fell victim to the wrecking ball. The city built a new development on top of old Scollay Square, and renamed the area Government Center, which is home to city, state, and federal government buildings. $800-1,200

Note: This scrapbook was compiled by a member or members of the family of U.S. Army surgeon Lyman Foot[e] (1796-1846) and his first wife Ann Treadwell Platt Foot (1803-1832), and his second wife Mary Morris Cooper, who was born at or near Cooperstown, New York, (m. Lyman Cooper, September 12, 1836). Dr. Foot was stationed at many U.S. forts and military establishments throughout his service as is evident by the locations of the different birthplaces of his seven children with his first wife Ann. One of the forts he and his family were stationed at early in his career was Fort Brady, which was built in 1822 on a ten-acre site facing the St. Marys River in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. The fort was established to bring an American military presence to the region, to assure Americans worried about armed British encroachment from Canada. We can conclude from the painting of the sled in the scrapbook, which is inscribed Ann T. Foots-painting-Fort Brady 1824, that the family was at the fort within two years after it was built. Two of their children were born there: Ann, born in August 23, 1824 (d. September 18, 1825), and Isaac, born September 23, 1825. $7,000-9,000

Provenance: Bill Guthman to John Baldwin to Jason Baldwin, then to consignor. Note: This powder horn is accompanied by two letters. The first, a typewritten letter of correspondence dated 10/29/98 from Bill Guthman to Jason Baldwin. It relates how Bill was unable to find Charles or Jonathan Barron in any of his roster books and goes on about the quality and style of the engraving. Lastly he states, Your horn obviously was left to Jonathan from Charles... The second letter is a letter of authentication of the horn dated July 29, 2005, by Jim Dresslar, author of The Engraved Powder Horn, 1996. The letter notes, The inscription is contained inside a cartouche with the word LEFT carved outside this cartouche, possibly added at a later time. We can only assume that with two names carved on the horn at the same time, maybe this was a shared horn, then eventually it was left to Jonathan. $5,000-7,000
