4001 - NEW YORK AND NEW ENGLAND RAILROAD, Cabinet card by Newell of Rockville, Conn. View of engine #140 with engine, coal tender, and caboose with crew posing in front. The New York and New England Railroad was a major railroad connecting southern New York State with Hartford, Connecticut, Providence, Rhode Island, and Boston, Massachusetts. It operated from 1873 to 1893. Prior to 1873 it was known as the Boston, Hartford, and Erie Railroad, which had been formed by several smaller railroads dating back to 1846. After bankruptcy in 1893, the New York and New England Railroad was reorganized and became known as the New England Railroad before its 1898 lease to the competing New York, New Haven and Hartford Railroad. Today, most of the original New York and New England lines have been abandoned; however a portion in Massachusetts is now part of the MBTA's Franklin Line providing commuter rail service to South Station in Boston. The Connecticut Southern Railroad operates freight service on a small portion of the former NY & NE line near East Hartford and Manchester, Connecticut. Other portions in Connecticut and Rhode Island have been converted to rail trails. Vintage 1880's photograph, very fine.................................................$75.00

4007 - MORMON PROPHET FREDERICK M. SMITH, Frederick Madison Smith (Janaury 21, 1874 - March 20, 1946), generally known among his followers as "Fred M.", was an American religious leader and author and the third Prophet-President of the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (renamed the Community of Christ in 2001), serving from 1915 until his death, Smith's paternal grandfather was Joseph Smith, Jr., the founder of the latter Day Saints movement, and his father was Joseph Smith III, the first president after the Church's "Reorganization." The first graduate of Graceland University, Fred M. earned a Ph.D. in psychology from Clark University in 1916, setting him apart as one of the most highly educated members of his church at the time. Smith's leadership was controversial. One biographer has called him "a man of paradox", and "one of the most controversial figures in Reorganization history. His presidency saw the church initiate a series of major projects, but it was also marred by the controversy over what became knows as "Supreme Directional Control." His signature in ink from a letter.................................$45.00

4008 - ROY O. DISNEY, ink signature as President of Walt Disney Enterprises. While Walt was the creative man, Roy was the one who made sure the company was financially stable. Roy and Walt both founded Disney Studios as brothers, but Walt would buy out most of Roy's shares in 1929 so, unlike Max and Dave Fleischer of rival Fleischer Studios, Roy was not a co-producer. However, Roy would be equal partner in all facets of the production company. Roy became the company's first CEO in 1929, although the official title was not given until 1968. He also shared the role of chairman of the board with Walt from 1945. Walt however dropped the chairman title in 1960 so he could focus more on the creative aspects of the company. After Walt Disney's death in 1966, Roy postponed his retirement to oversee construction of what was then known as Disney World. He later renamed it Walt Disney World as a tribute to his brother. Roy became the president of Walt Disney Productions on December 15, 1966, and remained so until 1968.........................................$45.00

82300 - GILBERT AND SULLIVAN 1879 NEW YORK, "HER MAJESTY'S SHIP PINAFORE", Complete program with paper wraps, 28 pages, complete two act program. H.M.S Pinafore; or, the Lass That Loved a Sailor is a comic opera in two acts, with music by Arthur Sullivan and a libretto by W. S. Gilbert. It opened at the Opera Comique in London, on 25 May 1878 and ran for 571 performances, which was the second-longest run of any musical theatre piece up to that time. H.M.S. Pinafore was Gilbert and Sullivan's fourth operatic collaboration and their first international sensation. Pinafore's extraordinary popularity in Britain, America and elsewhere was followed by the similar success of a series of Gilbert and Sullivan works, including The Pirates of Penzance and The Mikado. Their works, later known as the Savoy operas, dominated the musical stage on both sides of the Atlantic for more than a decade and continue to be performed today. The structure and style of these operas, particularly Pinafore, were much copied and contributed significantly to the development of modern musical theatre. A rare 1879 edition published in New York when the play was brought to America in 1879. A wonderful piece of New York theatrical history. Very fine....................................................................................$50.00

5013 - CHICAGO, 1866, THE CROSBY OPERA HOUSE AND ART ASSOCIATION, 2" X 4" engraved script certificate good for one steel engraving of the famed Opera House with a vignette of the establishment - actually a lottery ticket. Crosby's Opera House (1865 - 1871) was an opera house in Chicago, Illinois, United States. It was founded by Uranus H. Crosby in 1865 in an effort to bring a great opera hall to the city. The building was designed by William W. Boyington; the great expense of its construction ruined Crosby. After holding only occasional performances, an association formed to relieve the house of its great debt. A lottery was held that distributed over 210,000 tickets, awarding purchasers great works of art and even the building itself. After it was sold back to Crosby by the lottery winner, the hall saw more consistent performances. The hall hosted the 1868 Republican National Convention. It was destroyed in the Great Chicago Fire of 1871 and never rebuilt. Near uncirculated...5 cent imprinted revenue stamp to the left, uncommon.............................................SOLD
