ADOLF "DER FUHRER" HITLER - DOCUMENT SIGNED CIRCA 1944 CO-SIGNED BY: GENERAL WILHELM BURGDORF:

Military appointments by Hitler five months before his suicide and the war's end, countersigned by a general who died with Hitler in the bunker.

Typed DS: "A. Hitler" as Führer and "Bürgdorf" as Chief of Army Personnel, 1 page, 8¼x11¾. Führer Headquarters, 1944 December. In German with English translation. As of December 1, 1944, Hitler approves a transfer (General of the Panzer Forces Von Knobelsdorff), a commission (General of the Infantry Von Obstfelder to command the 1st Army) and an appointment (General of the Infantry Püchler to Commanding General of the LXXXVI Army Corps). General Wilhelm Bürgdorf (1895-1945) rose from command of a German infantry regiment early in World War II to become Chief of Army Personnel in October 1944. As a Hitler loyalist he played a key role in the final days of the Third Reich. On October 14 he personally delivered to General Irwin Rommel - implicated in the plot to assassinate Hitler - the ultimatum to take his own life or face a court martial and retaliation against his family. In the Führer's bunker, he participated in the treason trial of Heinrich Himmler (convicted in absentia of trying to negotiate surrender), witnessed Hitler's last will and testament, and killed himself following Hitler's own suicide.

PRESIDENT JOHN ADAMS - FOUR LANGUAGE SHIPS PAPERS SIGNED 08/11/1798 CO-SIGNED BY: GENERAL TIMOTHY PICKERING

PRESIDENT JOHN ADAMS - FOUR LANGUAGE SHIPS PAPERS SIGNED 08/11/1798 CO-SIGNED BY: GENERAL TIMOTHY PICKERING:

Ships papers signed in 1798 by Adams and Pickering, for the brig Jane sailing from Philadelphia to Antigua. The Jane was later captured by the corsair le Narbonnais; papers from captured ships are extremely rare. They're also historically significant, as they were signed a month after the beginning of the Quasi-War between France and the United States, an undeclared war that was fought exclusively at sea and was started over the capture of merchant ships like the Jane.

our language ships papers signed "John Adams" as President and "Timothy Pickering" as Secretary of State. Also signed on verso "Le Brig/capturé par le corsaire le narbonnais/No. 2" in unknown hand. 1 page, 19½x15½. Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, August 11, 1798. Four language ships' papers (French, Spanish, English, Dutch) issued at Philadelphia. In part: "Be it known That leave and permission, are hereby given to Robert Knox master or commander of the Brig called Jane...lying at present in the port of Philadelphia bound for Antigua and laden with Sundry Merchandize [sic]...." Because ships leaving U.S. ports needed ships' papers before a voyage, the documents were signed by the President and Secretary of State ahead of time and forwarded to the port. Read More...

ANNIE "LITTLE SURE SHOT" OAKLEY - PHOTOGRAPH SIGNED:

Carte de visite signed by Oakley for friend Ed Goodman, Buffalo Bill's nephew, who was part of the Wild West show.

Photograph signed: "Annie Oakley". Sepia, 4½x6½ carte de visite. Annie Oakley (1860-1926, born Phoebe Anne Moses in Darke County, Ohio), was born to a Quaker family and began to shoot rabbits and quail at age nine. Within five years, she was a breadwinner for her family as a markswoman, and, at age 15, she saved her family's farm with income she had earned from shooting game. On August 23, 1876, at age 16, Annie married Frank Butler, a vaudeville performer who became her partner. Annie's self-effacing personality (on and off stage) made her a popular performer. In 1885, the Butlers joined Buffalo Bill Cody's Wild West Show, where Annie was a star for 17 years. The five-foot-tall Oakley got her name "Little Sure Shot" from Sitting Bull and used it in her promotional materials. Read More...

On letterhead of Aldford House, Park Lane, to "Dear Uncle", in full: "As you saw this morning I haven't much time to myself. My program is filled for me and I have to adhere to it or be swamped with invitations. So ...[ellipses in original] I am sorry not to have been able to see you longer. There is hardly a chance that I shall be able to do so while here, as I leave so soon for home. I do hope the family does not feel the awful publicity too much. I had no idea people would be so interested, and am quite overcome. Sincerely". [signature] I hope I may drop in at 137 on my way to Boston, if I may. A. E." Amelia Earhart (1897-1937?), with Wilman Stutz and Louis Gordon, flew from Trepassy Bay, Newfoundland to Burry Port, Wales (June 17-18, 1928) to become the first woman to cross the Atlantic by air.
