JOSEPH-IGNACE GUILLOTIN - MANUSCRIPT DOCUMENT SIGNED 07/19/1788 CO-SIGNED BY: JEAN-NICOLAS CORVISART, PIERRE AUGUSTE ADET, PIERRE LOUIS LEZURIER, JEAN-JACQUES LE ROUX DE TILLETS:

As a member of a scientific commission (1788), he signs a report approving a device to keep bathtubs at a constant temperature. Four other prominent members of the commission have also signed. Guillotin's signature on a medical document is extremely rare and desirable!

Autograph Document signed: "Lézurieu", "Guillotin", "Le Roux des Tilles", "Corvisart" and "Adet fils", 2 pages, 7x9. Paris, 1788 July 19. In French, not translated. This detailed medical report signed by five of seven members of a study commission, describes the application of the pyrometer to bathtubs, ensuring that patients take their baths at a constant prescribed temperature. Commission members had personally observed the operation of the device, invented by medical doctor Le Sieur Bonnemain to treat muscle aches and pains. The reports attests to successful regulation of heat in bathtubs at 22, 26 and 30 degrees Celsius [71.6-86 Farenheit). The year after he signed this report, JOSEPH-IGNACE GUILLOTIN (1738-1814), a physician and member of the National Assembly recommended the use of a beheading machine as a humane form of execution.

PRESIDENT FIDEL CASTRO (CUBA) - DOCUMENT SIGNED 01/22/1960 CO-SIGNED BY: PRESIDENT OSVALDO DORTICOS (CUBA)

PRESIDENT FIDEL CASTRO (CUBA) - DOCUMENT SIGNED 01/22/1960 CO-SIGNED BY: PRESIDENT OSVALDO DORTICOS (CUBA):

AS CASTRO MOVES TO EMBRACE COMMUNISM, HE ACCEPTS THE RESIGNATION OF A FUTURE CRITIC UNWILLING TO FOLLOW THIS COURSE.

FIDEL CASTRO and OSVALDO DORTICÓS. Document signed: "Fidel Castro" as Prime Minister, "Osvaldo Dorticós Torrado" as President, 1p, 8½x12¾. Havana, Cuba, 1960 January 22. In Spanish. Presidential Decree No. 2358, accepting the resignation of Dr. Julio Garceran de Vall y Souza, administrator of laws for the Supreme Justice Court. Also signed by the Minister of Justice. Impressed with official seals of office over each signature. On January 1, 1959, Cuban President Fulgencio Batista fled the country, and FIDEL CASTRO, who had led a guerrilla struggle against the former leader, took over as Premier. He would hold this title he until 1976, when he became President of the Council of State and the Council of Ministers. Although Castro's Marxist-Leninist principles and alignment with the former Soviet Union isolated Cuba in the Western Hemisphere and antagonized the United States, his regime has outlasted its former Soviet patron. Castro is now by far the longest-ruling statesman in the Americas. OSVALDO DORTICÓS Torrado (1907-1989) served as President of Cuba from 1959 to 1976. Dorticós, a Castro loyalist who has been variously described as a colorless figurehead, and as a competent administrator with pragmatic tendencies, made headlines in a UN speech during the Cuban missile crisis with the (false) claim that Cuba possessed nuclear weapons.

PRESIDENT GEORGE WASHINGTON - AUTOGRAPH NOTE SIGNED IN TEXT:

his extremely rare undated note, handwritten by George Washington for his wife Martha, was written in response to a suggestion by her nephew John Dandridge. This letter mentions Martha (as "Mrs. Washington") as well as Dandridge and Martha's brother-in-law Burwell Bassett. Handwritten documents from George Washington are exceedingly rare, and it's highly unusual for one that mentions his family to appear on the public market.

Autograph note with "General" and "Washington" in text. Penned and signed on verso: "Washington's hand-writing./Jared Sparks". 1 page, 5x4. No place, no date. George Washington transcribes a letter his wife Martha wrote, then adds a comment. In full: "I have communicated [crossed-out words] the contents of your letter to the General, who readily consents to comply with your request and will, accordingly send the Bonds to Mr. B. Bassett, to bring such thereon. N.B. The above was given in answer by Mrs. Washington to the proposition of Mr. Jno Dandridge". Read More...

REAR ADMIRAL WILLIAM EDWARD PARRY - AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED 09/23/1852

REAR ADMIRAL WILLIAM EDWARD PARRY - AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED 09/23/1852

REAR ADMIRAL WILLIAM EDWARD PARRY - AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED 09/23/1852:

The noted Arctic explorer writes of a visit to the English Lake District and the famed Lancrigg estate, and of notables he visited there.

Autograph Letter signed: "W Parry", 4 pages (integral leaf), 4½x7¼. Keswich [England], 1852 September 23. To "My Dear Mrs. Fletcher" [Elizabeth Fletcher], in full: "I must write you a line, tho it be but a brief one, to offer you our very grateful acknowledgements for one of the most delightful treats we have ever been favored with. Tuesday last will ever be a memorable day in our Calendar. Nothing could be more perfect than your kind plan for us, except its kind execution; and we shall ever look back upon our visit with the most heartfelt gratification. I need scarcely assure you that our chief pleasure so vigorous, and so well able to perform the duties, and enjoy the pleasures, of a large and liberal hospitality in your sweet retreat; and we were somewhat relieved from anxiety in hearing from our Priscilla that you did not appear to have suffered from your friendly efforts in our behalf. It was a great kindness in you to receive our child yesterday; and the day proved so unceasingly wet that we rejoiced the more in having her under your sheltering wing. We got to Waterhead almost by water - had a food and merry drinks at that excellent Hotel, and then returned by Red Bank, having a good sight of Langdale Pikes, but not going into either valley. We reached Berwick before 8 o'clock. Lady Parry took advantage of our detention at Louiston to write to Lady Richardson a long and circumstantial account of our visit to Lancrigg; - and now, my dear Mrs. Fletcher, with our devoted and cordial regards and best thanks, and our kind remembrances to all your family circle, including that rare and most enchanting Songstress and her husband, believe me, with great esteem, yours very sincerely".
