10108. U S Lighthouse Service General Depot, Thompkinsville, Staten Island, New York c 1900

Lovely hand colored image measures 3 ½” x 4 ½” on 4 ½” x 5 ½” mount. Moored at the pier can be seen Lightship No 16, used as Relief in New York waters. The lighthouse visible on the pier has no lens and may have been used to evaluate lamps, oil, lens apparatus, etc. Note the lighthouse lantern sitting on the pier beside the lighthouse. In the background can be seen a lighthouse tender (note the walking beam of the steam engine), as well as buoys and other equipment. On Staten Island, the General Lighthouse Depot was established in 1863, where many of the supplies for the whole Service were purchased and stored and sent out for distribution, and where much of the special apparatus of the Service was manufactured or repaired. It is also where there was carried on various technical work in the way of testing apparatus and supplies and designing or improving apparatus. At one point this site employed some 200 men. Striking image is clear and crisp, beautifully hand colored. (VG+). $188.

11324k U S Light House Establishment, Captain William Gregory of the LH Tender Manzanita c 1896 1897

Measures a full 10” x 7” overall. Exceptional photo of Captain Gregory in uniform, posing for the photographer. Note the collar insignia – anchor inside the border – rarely seen, as well as the embroidered lighthouse on the sleeves. Clear view measures 5 ¼” x 7 ¾” and shows great detail of the Captain in uniform in great contrast. This came from a series of photos from Capt. William Gregory of the U.S. Lighthouse Tender Manzanita while in Alaska about 1896. The Manzanita was a wooden-hulled steam-powered tender built by the H. A. Ramsey Shipbuilding company in Brooklyn, New York, as a replacement for the tender Shubrick, which had served on the west coast. The Manzanita was the second lighthouse tender to serve in the Pacific. She was first assigned to the 12th Lighthouse District and then transferred to the 13th in 1886. She was rebuilt in 1887 and received a new boiler in 1902. She sank near Warrior Rock on the Willamette River in Oregon on 6 October 1905. She was later raised and repaired for commercial service. This is a one-of-a-kind view, by Gifford Photographers, Portland, Oregon. Clean, clear, only light edge wear, superb view. One of the largest that I have seen. (VG+). $244.


11433 Herreshoff, L Francis The Common Sense Of Yacht Design

11433. Herreshoff, L. Francis. The Common Sense Of Yacht Design. The Rudder Publishing Co., New York, 1948. Blue Cloth. First Edition. 9 ½” by 12”. 176 pages. Volume II only of 2. Contains chapters 11-20: Drafting; Figuring displacement; Measurement rules; Power boat models; Choosing a cruiser; Marine hardware and fittings; Ground tackle; The sailing machine; Small craft; and Looks in relation to design. Lewis Francis Herreshoff (1890-1972), the son of Nathanael G. Herreshoff, was a naval architect, editor and author of numerous books and articles. As a young man, Mr. Herreshoff had the opportunity to work in each area of the Herreshoff Manufacturing Co. During World War I, he designed for the U. S. Navy, and he later worked for naval architect W. Starling Burgess. By 1926, he was self-employed, designing racing and cruising yachts, canoes, kayaks and other small craft. His racing yachts include a 1930 Americas Cup contender, the J class yacht WHIRLWIND; the almost unbeatable double-ended M class sloop ISTALENA; and the revolutionary R class sloops YANKEE and LIVE YANKEE. Herreshoff is known to most as a designer of superb racing and cruising craft, and they are all well represented in this scarce volume. It is difficult to be too effusive in praise of this title. There is a wealth of information here, not only for the yacht designer, the budding yacht designer, and the would-be yacht designer, but also for the great number of the rest of us who just enjoy reading about great boats and gear. The standards and concepts of yacht design espoused by Herreshoff have not substantially changed since the original publication of this book, though rigs and shapes might appear very different, many of the same principles obtain. A fascinating read! Thoroughly Illustrated. Clean, tight, moderate wear to wraps, tape-repaired spine. (VG-). $48.

1215. Sicchio, Mary. The Forgotten Cape: 1940-1960

Arcadia. 2007. 128p. Soft wraps. 180 vintage photographs. In the 1940s through the 1960s, the Cape Cod Chamber of Commerce promoted Cape Cod as an alluring vacationland where the blue begins, and the frets of life cease. At the same time, a young, exuberant man with a camera, Richard Cooper Kelsey, arrived in Chatham. Kelsey began compiling a photographic record of small town life, of Cape Cod tourist landmarks, and the real people of Cape Cod with precision and clarity. He portrayed a Cape Cod of much beauty and charm, an earlier, more youthful time, and a time just within reach of memory. The photographs in The Forgotten Cape: 1940-1960 were culled from the over 7,000 item Kelsey Collection of the Nickerson Room at Wilkens Library, Cape Cod Community College. Superb photographs, well worth it for the photos alone. (M). $21.99.


12172. (cabinet photo) U.S. Lighthouse Tender Geranium c. 1879.

Extremely rare albumen photo by unknown photographer shows great detail of the U.S. Lighthouse Tender Geranium (1865-1910) underway. USLHT Geranium, a 224-ton side-wheel steamer, was built at Newburgh, New York, in 1863 as the civilian vessel John A. Dix. She was purchased by the Navy in September 1863 and commissioned in mid-October as USS Geranium for service as a tug. Assigned to the South Atlantic Blockading Squadron, she was used as a picket boat, dispatch vessel and transport in the coastal waters of northern Florida, Georgia and South Carolina. After the war, USS Geranium left South Carolina in June 1865 and was decommissioned at Washington, D.C. She was sold to the Treasury Department in October 1865 and became a light house tender with no change in name. She was assigned to the Eighth LH District out of New Orleans. In 1879 she was rebuilt and lengthened to 155 feet. In 1884 she was reassigned to the Fourth LH District and in 1890 transherred to the Second LH District (Massachusetts). Finally she was transferred to the First LH District (Maine & NH) in 1907. After over four decades of service supporting the Nation’s aids to navigation USLHT Geranium was sold in 1910. This image shows the tender before she was lengthened in 1879 – quite rare. Excellent view, close and clear, only very light wear. It is extremely difficult to find such early views and this view is certainly one of the larger, better ones. Measures 5 ” x 7”. (VG+). $124.

2762 [paperweight] Heavy glass rectangular paperweight featuring an early c 1900 photograph of Hyannis Harbor Lighthouse, South Hyannis, Mass

A 19-foot (to the base of the lantern), conical brick tower was built, and the light went into service on May 7, 1849. A fifth-order Fresnel lens replaced the original lighting apparatus in 1856, and a new cast-iron lantern was installed in 1863. Photo remains clear and sharp, overall in excellent condition. 2 ½” x 4” x ¾” h. One of the few such items of this remote Cape Cod light and most desirable. (F-). $135 net.


28258c. (portable watchman's clock) E. Imhauser & Company.

U.S. Life Saving Service type. c.1878. SN#6729. Such watch clocks were used by Life Saving Service surfmen in their patrols along the shore to log in their rounds and assure that all of the route was covered. These clocks were so reliable that even after new models were introduced in the early 1900’s, the Life Saving Service chose to retain the Imhauser models until they was no longer usable. The marking mechanism of the Imhauser is located inside the case cover and is very distinctive. When a station key is inserted in the marking mechanism, it moves a slidable member (against a slight spring force). The length of the particular key determines how far the slidable member is moved and hence to what radius of the recording chart a marking pin is brought. Then, when the key is turned, the pin is snapped against the paper recording dial and marks it at that radial position. Clock number is #6729. Early clock case marked “E. Imhauser New York. U.S. Patent Jan 25, 1876. Nov 30, 1875, Dec 5, 1876, June 26, 1877 dating this to pre 1880. Clock is in good condition and does operate briefly when wound but does need cleaning and servicing. Included are some paper discs but it is without keys or leather case. We can’t say if this particular clock was used by the Life Saving Service as they did not mark them, but this is the style that was used for many years. In the Service’s Annual Report for 1886, they note that this clock was intended for use at isolated stations where patrol exchange checks could not be used. The Board on Life-Saving Appliances noted herein as well that this clock was a valuable adjunct to the appliances of isolated stations. It is very difficult to find these early watch clocks. (VG). $285.
