    Dramatic 1884 Blaine-Logan Jugate Silk Campaign Flag
    One of the nicest early jugate flag designs. This important example is ex-collection of Boleslaw and Marie-Louise Mastai, who built one of the finest private collections of historic American flags. It is discreetly marked "Mastai Collection" in the lower LH corner, and is clearly identifiable as the example published in their major 1973 reference book, The Stars And Stripes (p. 208). While it does have some minor imperfections, it is all-in-all superior to the Smithsonian's example, pictured on page 238 of Threads of History. Two trivial small holes at the lower right do not impinge on the lettering, and could easily be restored if one wished. There is some minor, light water staining on the right side. Undoubtedly this occurred when the flag was stored rolled, leaving this end exposed. However, the silk fabric itself, so vulnerable to deterioration, is remarkably fresh and "minty," and the reds and blues are as bold and striking as the day it was made. Overall a very fine example for a flag of this era. 23" x 15". Nicely custom-framed.

    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.
