    Collis' Zouaves D' Afrique Recruiting Broadside, approximately 18.5" x 24", Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, likely Autumn, 1862. Organized in August, 1861 by Charles Collis, these celebrated Zouaves became Co. "A", 114th Pennsylvania Volunteers and served in the Eastern Theater until war's end. The primary recruiting officer listed here, Captain S. A. Barthoulot, was commissioned into the company on September 1, 1862 and would take a disability discharge the following year. An excellent opportunity to acquire a large and colorful broadside associated with a singular Federal organization. Mounted behind archival mat in modern gilt wooden frame. Areas of loss to margins and along central horizontal fold, blue and red inks retain rich color against a lightly toned background.

    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.
