REMARKS



This catalogue embraces the second portion of the Hampton L. Carson
Collection of Engraved Portraits, etc., and includes a series of Portraits
of three of the most important factors in our struggle for independence,
viz., Thomas Jefferson, whose wise sayings and teachings enlightened the
American people on the fallacy of despotic government and instilled into
their hearts the fact that all men were born free and equal; Benjamin Franklin,
the great philosopher and patriot, from whose teachings the whole world
has benefited as much as from that of any other person, whose diplomacy
won over to us the sympathy and help of the French nation, without which
our independence would not have been attained, and whose statesmanship
steered the barque of the young Republic into the safe harbor of freedom
and self-government; and Gilbert Mottier de la Fayette, the brave and noble-
hearted Frenchman, whose generous impulse led him to sacrifice home ties,
to assist a struggling people to attain that freedom, for which he suffered
so much, to gain for his own country. These three names, Jefferson, Frank-
lin, Lafayette, are therefore fit to be associated; they formed the three sides
of the triangle which enclosed the great firmament of the Declaration of
Independence, from which scintillates the light from many other stars that
brighten the atmosphere of this great and glorious country.

It is the first time that any considerable collection of the portraits of
either of these patriots has been offered the public, and this catalogue gives
a list of such portraits, described after the admirable manner of the late
W. S. Baker. The collections are as nearly perfect as many years of re-
search and a great expenditure of money could make them possible, and
this is the first attempted list published, forming, as it does, a guide for
collectors, as well as giving a full and complete description of the many
rarities contained therein.

I have avoided to a great extent the use of superlative adjectives in
describing the rarity of these portraits; as so many instances occurred
when their use could be properly employed, I decided that it would become
monotonous, and have therefore only occasionally made mention of their
rarity, when a portrait of the most superlative rarity came under my observa-
tion. A glance at the reproductions will give the reader an idea of the quality
of the collection, and at the same time act as an incentive for a careful
perusal of the whole catalogue.
