    Bonnie Parker: Original Candid Snapshots. Five sepia tone photographs, thought to be unpublished, from the family of the notorious Bonnie Elizabeth Parker (1910-1934), of "Bonnie & Clyde" fame. Like her contemporary John Dillinger, she and her partner-in-crime, Clyde Barrow, perished in a police ambush. Each photo is identified on the back side in pencil. The most interesting shot shows "Bonnie", striking a seductive pose at the rear of her Ford V8 coupe. Dated 1933, it measures 3 1/4" x 5" with one bent corner and a tape stain at the bottom. A 3 1/4" x 2 1/2" image shows "Mamma/ Buster/ Bonnie/ Jean" in an outdoor setting, circa 1914. A 3 1/2" x 2 1/2" photo shows "Jean & Mom" (sister Billie Jean Parker and Emma Krause Parker) with two ranch-hands in a field. A 2 3/4" x 4 1/2" photo shows "Mother" with two unidentified man outside a house. A 3" x 4" photo shows two women, marked on verso "Sambo & Jean. Lighten up dark girl Left." (puncture between portraits with paint and ink mark-ups).

    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.
