of tfte feature^ of $art V,



The most important single item in the large, varied, and interesting
collection of Autographs made by the late Adrian H. Joline, Esq., the
one to which he gave the most careful attention and in which he took
the greatest pride, was his complete

SET OF THE SIGNEES

of the Declaration of Independence, which is now offered for sale, each
autograph separately. "I love to turn the faded, yellow pages,"
wrote Mr. Joline, "and to think of the men who gave a new republic
to mankind." He began to make this collection early in his career as
a collector and he did not complete it till shortly before his death.
The scarcest of all the autographs are those of Lynch and Gwinnett.
Mr. Joline 's example of the former is the signature written on the
back of an engraved frontispiece to "The Tragedies of Sophocles,"
which Mr. Joline himself removed from the book which was once part
of the Lynch library. The Gwinnett is a signature attested by Charles
C. Jones, Jr., the well-known historian of Georgia, and was the last
autograph of a Signer that Mr. Joline secured; to his great delight it
made his collection complete.

Next to the Lynch and Gwinnett signatures, he valued the Hooper
letter, for it was written to Hewes and delivered by Penn, thus bringing
into intimate association the three Signers from North Carolina. The
autographs of Francis Lightfoot Lee, Nelson, Boss, Rutledge, Sherman,
Whipple, Penn, and Hewes are rare in any form, but this Collection
contains a full Autograph Letter Signed by each of them, and the
letters are generally of an historical character, so that a great oppor-
tunity to improve their collections of the Signers is now afforded to
the few fortunate possessors of a complete set, while the sale opens to
all collectors an unusual opportunity to acquire autographs which rarely
come on the market. The Franklin letter in the Joline Collection is
long and very interesting and was written to Dr. Samuel Johnson. The
Harrison letter is important historically because it deals with the
defence of Virginia. The Hopkinson letter is addressed to Franklin
and discusses the electric battery. That by Bead relates to his com-
pilation of the laws of Maryland. The Collection is made up of forty
Autograph Letters Signed, five Autograph Documents Signed, six
Documents Signed, two Letters Signed, one Autograph Letter, and the
two signatures of Lynch and Gwinnett a total of fifty -six. The por-
traits of the Signers and views of their residences, collected by Mr.
Joline and all inlaid to folio (144 pieces in all), are offered as a
single lot.



MISCELLANEOUS AUTOGEAPHS.

Attention may be called to the following early letters and documents
among the many highly important autographs in this division of Mr,
Joline's Collection.

Ethan Allen's document charging his brother with conspiring with
the loyalists; a letter by Benedict Arnold and one by his wife; docu-
ments signed by Israel and Eufus Putnam; original charges made by
Col. John Brown against Benedict Arnold, addressed to General Gates,
which is of the highest importance; two letters by Eliphalet Dyer
regarding the Connecticut claims in Pennsylvania; the original oath
signed by Alexander Hamilton on his admission to the bar; extracts
from the minutes of the Committee on Plots and Conspiracies, relating
to Cadwallader Golden and signed by John Jay; five letters by
Lafayette; an important letter by Thomas Paine; three documents
signd by Governor John Penn; war letters by Pulaski, Bochambeau,
and Baron Steuben; fine letter by Jesse Root regarding the secret
transactions of the Continental Congress and the relations of France
and the United States; important letter by Anthony Wayne to the
President of Congress regarding the storming of Stony Point; fine war
letters by General Sterling, General Sullivan, and Marinus Willett;
letters by Count de Vergennes, Jonathan Trumbull, and Zebulon Butler;.
Colonel Van Schaick's report on the Onondaga expedition of 1779; a
long series of letters by Alexander Scammell, who was a member of
Washington's military family, one of them relating to the move-
ments of the Northern army; and an important letter by Aaron Burr
to General Conway.

The Washington material embraces an early survey, an address to*
the militia of New Jersey, and eight Letters Signed, most of them
relating to the defence of Forts MifHm and Henry.

Among the material of a later date are: A fine letter by Audubon
regarding the folio edition of his "Birds"; letter of John Brown of
Osawatomie to his wife; letters by Generals Brown, Macomb, and
Wilkinson, and other fine material on the War of 1812; and the original
ledgers of John Taylor, a merchant of Albany, from 1790 to 1820.

The Collection is rich in letters from literary celebrities, among
them: Aldrich, Bancroft, Bryant, Cooper, Emerson, Field, Harte,
Hawthorne, Hearn, Holmes, Irving, James, Longfellow, Lowell, Park-
man, Prescott, Taylor, Thoreau, Whitman, and Whittier; and among
the other famous men represented are Agassiz, Booth, Calhonn, Cass,
Clinton, Ellsworth, Fremont, Jesup, Kent, King, Langdon, Lansing,
Livingston, Morse, Pownall, Scott, and Webster.
