    A. Bauer & Company Whiskey: Chromolithograph Advertising Poster. The poster, 23" x 16", was printed by the F. Tuchfarber Company of Cincinnati, Ohio and is dated "11/97". The full-color illustration depicts a dangerous looking cowboy and an Indian holding up a Chinaman who had just played three aces in a poker game. It advertises several of the whiskies and drinks produced by A Bauer & Co. (1893-1908) of Chicago. Among the brands served at Sam Toughnut's Saloon were "Old Rip van Winkle", "Old Rip", and "Dam-I-Ana". Toned with some creases at the bottom, else near fine. Very attractive!

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
