    Sioux Leaders: A Superb Near-mint Oversized Collage Photo by Barry. In the center is Chief John Grass, so the image probably dates from circa 1890-1891, during the time of the Ghost Dance and Wounded Knee, when he was an outspoken advocate of peace (Chief White Bull said of him that he was "a good talker...not a thinker or a smart man...could always say yes, but never no." He is surrounded by photos of Sitting Bull, Rain-in-the-Face, Gall, Curley (Custer's famed scout), and Sitting Bull's camp. In the center bottom, part of the photo, is a smaller banner reading "Copyrighted by D. F. Barry," whose name is also stamped into the lower righthand corner. Spectacular condition, and imposing 10.75" x 13.75" size (including mount). First time we have ever had this great image. For strictest accuracy we note a bit of trivial corner wear on the mount, but the photo itself is pristine an unimprovable.

    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.
