77.     CAPTAIN JOHN TREASURE JONES ARCHIVE - BORN AND RAISED ON A SMALL FARM IN PEMBROKESHIRE, WALES, JOHN TREASURE JONES WENT TO SEA WHEN HE WAS FIFTEEN. FOR THE FIRST FOUR YEARS HE WAS INDENTURED AS AN APPRENTICE, SURVIVING THE OCEANS IN A SMALL TRAMP STEAMER. SLOWLY, HE WORKED HIS WAY UP TO BECOME CAPTAIN OF THE MOST FAMOUS OCEAN LINER AFLOAT AT THE TIME, CUNARD'S R.M.S. QUEEN MARY.
DURING THE SECOND WORLD WAR, AS A COMMANDER IN THE ROYAL NAVY RESERVE, HE WAS TORPEDOED IN THE ATLANTIC AND MENTIONED TWICE IN DESPATCHES. IN THE POST-WAR YEARS, HE MIXED WITH FILM STARS AND ROYALTY, COMMANDING SEVERAL OF THE FAMOUS CUNARD LINERS, SUCH AS THE SAXONIA, MAURETANIA AND QUEEN ELIZABETH.
IN 1967, HE TOOK HIS FINAL COMMAND, QUEEN MARY, ON HER LAST VOYAGE, FROM SOUTHAMPTON TO HER RETIREMENT HOME IN LONG BEACH, CALIFORNIA.
CAPTAIN TREASURE JONES DIED IN 1993. HIS HIGHLY ACCLAIMED AUTOBIOGRAPHY "TRAMP TO QUEEN" WAS PUBLISHED IN 2008. HIS PERSONAL COLLECTION IS BEING SOLD VIA DIRECT DESCENT AND WAS OBTAINED DURING A MOMENTOUS CAREER AT SEA.

CAPT JOHN TREASURE JONES BLUE ENSIGN THAT FLEW ON MAURETANIA AND QUEEN MARY: The Blue Ensign originally denoted the rear admiral's squadron when the Royal Navy was divided into three squadrons from 1617. This system using the familiar red, white and blue ensigns to denote each one, was abolished in 1864. The Royal Navy retained the White, and the Red Ensign was given to the merchant navy. Since 1861, however, Royal Naval Reserve captains are entitled to fly the Blue Ensign when in command of their merchant ships. There was also the stipulation that at least seven other officers and men on the crew were also Royal Naval Reservists.

The first captains of both the Queen Mary and the Mauretania II were RNR and the various paintings by Charles Pears, Stephen Card & Harley Crossley of these liners at the time of their maiden voyages correctly show them flying the Blue Ensign.
Captain John Treasure Jones was the last master of each these two great liners. After having had the command of the Mauretania II for several years, he took her for her final voyage to the scrapyard at Inverkeithing, Scotland in November 1965. He then took command of the Queen Mary for her final two years at sea, which ended when she arrived in Long Beach in December 1967.

As distinct from the Red Ensign, the Blue tended to be the personal property of the Captain. John kept his in a particular attaché case. The story is told that when coming aboard he would call for the Yeoman of Signals and give him the express command that when the ensign was not flying it was to be returned each time to its special case.

Capt. John Treasure Jones's first command of a Cunard passenger ship was the Media.
In the painting by Stephen Card, illustrated in "Liners in Art"by Kenneth Vard, he has specifically painted her flying the Blue Ensign to commemorate a particular voyage undertaken by the author at this time. His ensign also flew from the stern of the liners Sylvania, Saxonia, Carinthia, and Queen Elizabeth.
Captain Treasure Jones finally hauled down his Blue Ensign on 9th December 1967, when he retired from the sea duty, together with his last command, the Queen Mary.

For the funeral of John Treasure Jones it was decided by the family that the coffin should be draped in the Blue Ensign and bear his medals, service cap and dress sword. A fitting tribute to a highly respected and consummate seaman.
Initial contact with the RNR based in Southampton and Portsmouth failed to find an ensign of the suitable size. The Royal Navy at Portsmouth were also unable to assist. Finally, at the very last moment, an ensign arrived by personal courier from the RNR in Liverpool. 18 feet x 8½ feet.


£2000-3000
78.     CAPTAIN JOHN TREASURE JONES ARCHIVE: Superb Wilkinson Sword gilt RNR dress sword with shagreen handle and leather and gilt scabbard. Acid etched blade ER, J. Treasure Jones and maker's details with carrying case, simply superb. 37ins. with letter from Harry Beckham, Chairman of Wilkinson Sword.
Apart from being a senior manager of Wilkinson Sword, Harry Beckham Randolph was an engineer and inventor. In 1929, he was granted patent GB321115 for the Wilkinson Empire Safety Razor. By the end of WWII, he was Chairman of Wilkinson Sword.
In the early 1960s, they launched a new and revolutionary Wilkinson Sword razor blade which was soon being sold in more than 50 countries. With this growth into international markets, Harry Randolph became a regular passenger on the North Atlantic and befriended John Treasure Jones.

In the Merchant Marine only the officers of the Pacific & Orient (P&O) Shipping Company were permitted to wear swords. However, John Treasure Jones was a Captain RNR and therefore entitled to wear a sword on appropriate occasions of ceremony.

87.     CAPTAIN JOHN TREASURE JONES ARCHIVE - MAURETANIA'S DOCKING BRIDGE BELL:
The original bronze bell from the docking bridge onboard R.M.S. Mauretania II. The main bridge, located at the forward end of the boat deck was the 'navigating bridge' and was referred to as the 'fore bridge'. The other bridge on the ship was the 'docking bridge' on the Poop Deck and often referred to as the 'after bridge'.
This was a raised platform extending across the breadth of the ship and extending beyond it for several feet on either side. It was equipped with an auxiliary helm (steering wheel) and the ship could be steered from here if the telemotor system on the navigating bridge failed. The docking bridge had two telegraphs similar to those on the navigating bridge. One could transmit engine orders forward; the other could transmit helm (steering) orders aft. When docking the ship, this telegraph was especially necessary as the location of the docking bridge, together with its extension just beyond the ship's sides on either end, permitted an Officer to view the area around the stern of the ship which could not be seen from the navigating bridge. This was also useful when tugs were in attendance to assist the ship in moving in or out of her berth.

On R.M.S. Mauretania there was a second, unmarked, bell on the docking bridge. This was struck as safety signals when the ship was at anchor, or operating closely together with others, in fog. When Mauretania went to be scrapped by Thomas Ward at Inverkkeithing in 1965, this bell was given to Captain Treasure Jones; a rare piece of Cunard history. 17ins. Plus, a typed history of the Mauretania chronicling her history. Captain Treasure Jones obtained the bell when Mauretania was scrapped and it was mounted in his home.

Legato, and camera operator J. Rider. Robert Legato is an Oscar winning visual effects supervisor and won an Oscar for his work on Titanic in 1997.

Digital Domain handled the special effects sequences in the movie producing among others the camera sequence for the iconic King of the World, Jack and Rose "I'm Flying" sinking and some underwater scenes. Since clapperboards can be repurposed for other scenes and films they do not typically come to market. This one was gifted to a film student on the set. We are aware of another clapperboard from the film in a museum. A clapperboard is a device used in filmmaking by the director to mark a particular scene with an audio cue (a "clap" sound) in order to synchronize the audio and video tracks later.

Historically, clapperboards were chalkboard slates with a clap-stick on which film and scene details could be added with chalk then erased for use in other scenes or other films. As the industry progressed, chalk was replaced with erasable marker and, ultimately, with digital LED readouts. Today, clapperboards are sometimes digital entities themselves.

This is a rare opportunity to obtain an important production-used piece (not a prop) from one of the most iconic films of the last century. 11ins. x 9ins.

Paper loss to top edge and corners, a few small edge tears, and light overall creasing and wrinkling, otherwise very good condition.

Provenance: Caren Archive, New York Times. The radio operators on Carpathia were so busy transmitting messages from survivors to their families, a task Carpathia's captain felt took priority, relatively little official information came from Carpathia during this period. The U.S. government was so anxious for information and a list of survivors (President Taft's military aide had been on the ship) that it dispatched the U.S.S. Chester in an attempt to make radio contact with Carpathia in hopes of getting the requested information. The press, too, had been waiting for information and had attempted to solicit passengers and crew to provide exclusives while the ship was still at sea. Some reporters even planned to get onto the ship before it reached New York Harbour. This photo represents a culmination of the press's tenacious efforts to gather as much information about what happened before their competition did, 9¾ins. x 7½ins.

285.    **S.S. CALIFORNIAN LETTER DEFENDING CAPTAIN LORD:
So much has been written and debated regarding the role of the Californian and her Captain, Stanley Lord, in connection with Titanic's rescue; yet so little original vintage material weighing in on the debate has been made available to collectors.

This lot consists of an incredible content typed letter signed by Stanley T. Lord, son of Captain Lord, dated 12th December 1970 addressed to Mr. Donald P. Kaye of Connecticut. In it, Captain Lord's son dispels the myth that his father's career was over in the aftermath of the British Inquiry, explaining how he was given command of one of the Nitrate Producers vessels. He states that his father's conscience remained clear as it was never in his power to be of assistance. He takes issue with the innuendo by Rufus Isaacs [British Attorney General] that his father was drunk in his cabin. He states, in part, "…father was a teetotal (sic)…as his ship was static all night how on earth could the moving light seen be from the Californian…"

This letter is a must read for anyone seeking to learn more about Captain Lord's feelings on the issue of his actions that night, as the younger Lord goes into much detail concerning his father's thoughts.

307.    **R.M.S. TITANIC: Rare letter in relation to Titanic compensation claims, typed on White Star Line Olympic letterhead, October 17th 1912. The letter is addressed to Sir John Gray Hill of the Liverpool & London Steamship Protection Association and reads in full:

"We beg to attach copy of a letter we received from our Southampton Office with reference to the services rendered by Master-at-Arms Osman and Assistant Shipping Master Greenham in connection with the Titanic compensation claims. As this would be a debit on the Protection Association we should be glad to know whether you authorise us to make the grants suggested." Letter is initialled at the conclusion by a representative from Ismay, Imrie and Co.

The letter cited is attached to the reverse left edge, dated October 16th, 1912, and reads, in part: "In connection with the many enquiries made by us at the instigation of Messrs. Hill, Dickinson & Co. with respect to dependents of the members of the crew, we desire to call your special attention to the services rendered by Master-at-Arms and our Assistant Shipping master Greenham. These men received no overtime allowance, most of the enquiries have had to be made after the day's work at the dock is over, and in many instances considerable distances have had to be travelled into the country in order to follow up on their enquiries. Their cycles have been used for this purpose and as the number of reports made to Messrs. Hill Dickinson & Co., is great, the wear and tear on their machines has been correspondingly heavy. Under all the circumstances and in view of the satisfaction expressed by Messrs. Hill Dickinson & Co. at the reports made we recommend a special grant to Osman and Greenham of say £5/£10 each and we trust that this will meet your approval." In fine condition, with a small pencil notation to bottom left, a couple of small staple holes to top left, and a few trivial brushes to typed text.

Of the Titanic's crew of almost 900 members, a mere 215 survived the ship's sinking. The two men mentioned in this letter, Master-at-Arms Osman and Assistant Shipping Master Greenham, took upon themselves the extraordinary task of personally delivering the tragic news to the families of fallen crew members "after the day's work at the dock is over" with "no overtime allowance." Requesting a small amount of compensation for their bicycles, which carried them far and wide in their difficult task, this is a fascinating pair of letters, written as the White Star Line was seeking to limit its liability in much larger claims for loss of life and property. A fascinating and very unusual snapshot into the behind the scenes administrative process after the sinking.

He was an American tennis player and R.M.S. Titanic survivor. He and his father (who was lost in the disaster), were travelling First Class on the liner when it struck an iceberg and sank. His ordeal left his legs so severely frostbitten that the Carpathia's doctor wanted to amputate them. Williams, who did not want his tennis career to be cut short, opted instead to work through the injury by simply getting up and walking around every two hours, around the clock. The choice worked out well for him; later that year, he won his first U.S. Tennis Championship, in mixed doubles, and went on to win many more championships. He also won the Davis Cup and Wimbledon in 1920. 7ins. x 10ins. (2)

with her husband, James when their ship diverted to rescue Titanic's survivors. The Birma was about half the length of Titanic at just over 400 feet, with a single funnel and four masts. The ship was en route to Russia when she received Titanic's distress call and steamed towards her position about 100 miles away. On arrival, Birma's wireless operators found it difficult to obtain information from Carpathia as evidenced by Birma's procés verbal log which Henry Aldridge & Son had the privilege of selling several years ago for over £30000. Birma searched the area for survivors but finding none and having observed Carpathia's departure, discontinued its search.

332.    BELFAST TITANIC HARLAND & WOLFF COLLECTION.

Charlotte E. Irwin (nee Brennan) was 20 years old and a secretary at the drafting offices at Harland & Wolff when Titanic was being built. During her tenure, she was privy to many of the day-to-day workings of the Olympic Class liners and acquired some stellar original snapshot photographs of the people and places important in Titanic's construction and launch. This lot was acquired via descent by Ms. Irwin's daughter, who recently passed away.

R.M.S. TITANIC: A SUPERLATIVE ORIGINAL PHOTOGRAPH OF THE HARLAND & WOLFF DRAWING ROOM.
A Spectacular post-Titanic original photo of the Harland and Wolff drawing room where Titanic was designed, photographed by someone who worked there. This photograph depicts work in progress in the drawing room with several well-dressed gentlemen in attendance and numerous rolled plans visible in the foreground.

We are aware of two images of this iconic room belonging to Irwin. The other, a remarkable image in which the renowned builder's master model of Olympic/Titanic is in attendance was sold by Henry Aldridge & Son in April 2016.

This sepia-toned photograph measures approximately 1½ins. x 2ins. and possesses remarkable clarity. The lot is accompanied by a copy of a letter from Irwin's daughter, Charlotte Alexandra Nelson Cowie, attesting to Irwin's employment at Harland & Wolff during the time of Titanic's construction. The photograph is believed to date from that time period.

333.    **R.M.S. TITANIC: An exceptionally rare letter by Titanic crewman Sidney Siebert from the mighty ship's birthplace, Belfast, titled 'prior to her sea trials'. R.M.S. Titanic, Belfast, Friday, and is written in pencil over four pages on two adjoining sheets, 4½ins. x 7ins. It is to Sidney's wife Winnie, written in the Public Library in Belfast. In full (with grammar and spelling retained): "I have bought a little note paper so that I could drop you a few more lines than I could get on a postcard. As I told you we had a very trying journey here we were over 11 hours in the train and then straight on to the steamboat for another 8 hours and nowhere to sleep all that time and she was a rather old boat we came over by. I hope you are still keeping well. I am glad to say I am alright the air here is very bracing it makes me as hungry as anything. I don't think a great deal of the City it is not so good as Soton (Southampton) although there are several fine buildings here but the town itself is very dirty and it has been raining ever since we got here. I am writing this in the Public Library a very nice building but not up to date English books and papers seem very scarce here. Also another thing which strikes one as curious is that there are no cabs or Taxis here they all have these jaunting cars as sort of a shelf arrangement on two wheels and they look most decidedly uncomfortable. I have not tried one yet and have no intention of doing so. I expect we are leaving here for our trials on Monday and for home on Tuesday and I can tell you I shall be glad after that long time at home I don't like being away at all. But I suppose I must not grumble as I have had a good time while I was home and must now get on & earn some money. Kiss baby for me tell her daddy wants to see her and I want to see my other little girl as well. Good Night my own beloved with all the hearts love. Your own ever loving & Davoted (sic) Husband hon,"

At this time, Titanic had been in Belfast awaiting her delivery to Southampton in order to embark on her maiden voyage from that port on April 10th, 1912. She had a skeleton delivery crew for this short but necessary journey, of which Siebert was a part. The crew was responsible for getting themselves to Titanic's birthplace, first to take her on her sea trials and then to Southampton. Siebert explains he had carried the notepaper he used for this letter with him to Belfast so that he wouldn't have to send her a postcard. Siebert died in the sinking. His body was not identified. According to Colonel Archibald Gracie in his book Titanic (page 181), Siebert had been pulled from the water into Lifeboat No. 4 but died thereafter. Letters from Titanic's delivery/sea trial crew during their very brief stay in Belfast are practically non-existent. The fact that Siebert mentions the upcoming sea trials and delivery trip, and discusses the sites he had seen in Belfast makes this letter all the more desirable, and possibly unique. A small separation to one of the central horizontal folds, expected light soiling, and some scattered light toning to second page, otherwise fine condition.

334.    R.M.S TITANIC: EXCEEDINGLY RARE ARCHIBALD GRACIE LETTER WITH TITANIC CONTENT.

Archibald Gracie IV was a First Class passenger on Titanic travelling home to Washington, D.C. after a holiday in Europe during which his wife and daughter remained at home. Gracie's situation during and after the sinking was quite precarious. He had been helping others to lifeboats and remained on the ship to the end. He was swept under the waves and managed to surface and survive by hanging onto the overturned Collapsible Lifeboat B.

Gracie wrote a book about the Titanic tragedy titled The Truth About the Titanic published in 1913. But he did not get to finish proof reading the manuscript as on 4th December 1912 he became one of the first survivors to die after the sinking. The cause of death was complications relating to diabetes which some believe was exacerbated by the injuries he suffered from his exposure to the frigid water eight months earlier.

This single-spaced typed letter, signed "Arch d. Gracie," is written on one side of a sheet of onion skin paper, 7¾ins. x 10½ins., and is marked "COPY." However, the letter is the recipient's and bears Gracie's original bold ink signature. It is dated September 26th 1912 and is addressed to Louis M. Ogden, Tuxedo, N.Y. Ogden and his wife were passengers on Carpathia during the rescue of Titanic's survivors. The letter reads, in part:

…My manuscript is nearly completed, and I want to hand it to my publisher…In my book, you will find that I have done justice to what your dear wife and yourself did for us unfortunates while on the CARPATHIA, especially what you did for me…

Gracie asks for the Ogdens' recollections of what they saw and thought as Titanic's lifeboats approached the Carpathia and mentions photographs taken by the Ogdens. He adds a postscript which reads, in part:

I promised Third Officer H.J. Pitman formerly of the TITANIC, now on board the OCEANIC…that I would call your attention to the fact that he had not received the promised prints from you of TITANIC life boats…

This is an exceptional letter written by one of the more renowned passengers of Titanic soon after the disaster to someone who played a prominent enough role in Gracie's rescue to warrant mention in his book. Material written by Gracie rarely if ever comes to market. Gracie died a little over two months after this letter was written. Letters from survivors to those who assisted them on Carpathia are quite rare. This one has exceptional content relating to the disaster and even passes along a message from Titanic's Third Officer!

341.    R.M.S. TITANIC: Extremely rare testimonial to Captain Sir Arthur Rostron of the Carpathia, championing his role in the 1912 rescue of the Titanic passengers. Dated 1930 and featuring a thumbnail portrait of Rostron's then command, the Berengaria, it accompanied the establishment of a trust fund in the Captain's name, which he intended to apply to the education of his children. The linen-backed testimonial was passed to Rostron's lifelong friends, Louis and Augusta Ogden, who were passengers on the Carpathia in April 1912, and is thence by direct descent. It magnificently lists all of this famed seafarer's many achievements and honours.
The opportunity to own a citation to Captain Rostron that specifically names the Titanic is a remote occurrence indeed.
Decorated with dolphins about its opening initial, it reads: 'In Recognition of the Fine Character and Outstanding Seamanship of Sir Arthur Rostron, KBE, RD, RDR, Aide-de-Camp to King George V, United States Medal of Congress, Chevalier Legion d'Honneur, France; Commodore of the Cunard Line Fleet, Captain of the Berengaria, Ambassador of Good Will between Great Britain and America, as a Tribute to His Historic Heroism when Captain of the Carpathia at the Scene of the TITANIC disaster and In Appreciation of his interest in those who have been privileged to travel in ships under his command, the Undersigned have established a Trust Fund in his name as A Testimonial of His Accomplishments and the High Regard in Which He Is Held.

343.    R.M.S. TITANIC - TWO UNIQUE ORIGINAL PHOTOGRAPHS OF TITANIC DEPARTING SOUTHAMPTON HARBOUR:

A pair of original unpublished photographs of Titanic sailing from Southampton Harbour with tugs and other vessels in view. Despite the heavy smoke spewing from various ships' funnels in the photos, the images of Titanic are crisp, clean and detailed.

Each image is hand captioned below, Titanic sailing from Southampton 10 April 1912" and measure 4ins x 5ins. The images were photographed from departure angles with one being a ¾ port side view and the other depicting the stern practically dead on.
The photos were sent from Southampton to Mr. F. Le. Boulanger, a wealthy ship owner, ship broker and coal exporter who lived in Mumbles in South Wales, an area famed for its coal mines. The original mailing envelope postmarked from Southampton on April 26 1912 is included in the lot.
As Mr. Boulanger was a coal exporter in South Wales and as these photos were sent to him, it is quite possible he may have been involved in the provision of coal to the ship. Since the recipient of the photos was important in the ship industry, the photos may have been taken by one of his associates.

This lot is also accompanied by a photograph of three well-dressed ladies including his wife and one of Mr Boulanger, as well as personal papers of the Boulanger family.

These photographs represent previously unknown and unique images of Titanic as she left Southampton. They are close and clear enough to count the portholes and to see the shadow cast by the stern in the water. We would have preferred offering them as two separate lots to provide an additional opportunity for bidders; however, the consignor preferred to keep them together in the sale. Thus, the fortunate winner of this lot will get the set of both Titanic photographs together with the original mailing envelope and the associated photo and papers, an unprecedented opportunity to acquire two original and unpublished Titanic images! of this calibre.
£8000-12000
344.    **R.M.S. TITANIC - UNIQUE ON-BOARD TITANIC LETTER RECOVERED FROM VICTIM'S BODY:
A superlative letter handwritten on oversized embossed on-board Titanic stationery by First Class victim Alexander Oskar Holverson to his mother on April 13th, 1912, well after Titanic had embarked on her maiden voyage and merely a day before her encounter with an iceberg. Since the ship had no further ports of call before reaching New York, Holverson's intent would have been to post the letter in New York. It represents one of the last known letters to have survived the sinking and the last known letter written on board by a victim. Since it was recovered from Holverson's body he obviously had still hoped to be able to send it on to his mother from New York. As she received it after the ship foundered this may be the only on-board letter written by a victim and delivered to its recipient without postage to date.

The letter is of bifold format, unsigned and written on three of its four pages. It bears the embossed red White Star Line burgee and is headed "On board R-M-S Titanic" in navy blue. Holverson dates the letter in the heading April 13th 1912, with the '191' pre-printed in navy blue. Each page bears a beautiful White Star Line five-pointed star logo watermark (not the more common Spartan soldier) and measures an incredible 7ins. x 9ins. when closed, making this the largest known format for any on-board Titanic letterhead. But for this example, this letter size was virtually unknown.

While the ink on the burgee and wording has not run, owing to the fine printing techniques and inks utilized by the line, the letter displays some colourful stains to the last (blank) page which was the page mostly exposed to the water evident from the way the letter had been folded by Holverson. The stains give testament to the reaction of the acid-rich paper with salt water.

If this letter were virtually blank, it would still rank amongst the most desirable. Yet, the content takes it to another level. Owing to the fact that it was written well into the voyage, Holverson was in a position to actually describe the on-board music and food, as well as life on board. The letter reads, in part, as follows (grammar in original):

"…This boat is giant in size and fitted up like a palacial hotel…If all goes well we will arrive in New York Wednesday A.M. I am sending you a postcard of the ship and also a book of postcards showing the inside…Mate had a letter from Mr. Berry at Buenos Aires which stated that she was getting on fine…Mr. and Mrs. John Jacob Astor is on this ship. He looks like any other human being even tho he has millions of money. They sit out on deck with the rest of us…" (Emphasis Added)

Holverson's mention of seeing fellow First Class passenger John Jacob Astor sitting out on deck is an observation the likes of which we have not seen in previous letters written earlier in the voyage, particularly because as a First Class passenger Holverson had access to passengers that those in other classes did not have. He obviously had intended to include a postcard and an on-board postcard book for his mother. Having dealt with these rare postcard books before, we know that it would have been considerably larger than the folded letter and more difficult to carry with him off the ship. But the most ominous thing Holverson writes to his mother is that, "If all goes well we will arrive in New York Wednesday A.M." as if he knew that things may not have gone well. How ironic that these were words he took off the very ship on which he had hoped to arrive.

This lot is accompanied by an original large photograph, 5ins. x 9ins., of Holverson and his wife, Mary Alice. It is hand-captioned on verso, "Dec 1911 Mary Alice Holverson, Oscar Alexander Holverson leaving for South America previous to the Titanic". The photo shows the couple on the deck of a ship in New York harbour. We do not often encounter photos of Titanic passengers at the moment they are embarking on their outbound trip. It would display very well indeed with the letter. Also included in the lot are some unrelated handwritten letters from Holverson's mother to his brother, Walter.

Mr. Holverson was a successful salesman and had been on holiday with his wife in Buenos Aires (thus the reference to that city in the letter) before they arrived in Southampton aboard the Aragon. After a brief stay at the Piccadilly Hotel in London, Holverson and his wife boarded Titanic in Southampton. While Mrs. Holverson was rescued, Mr. Holverson did not survive. His body was the 38th to be recovered by the Mackay-Bennett. His pocket book was recovered within which this letter would have been kept, prior to it being returned with his other effects to his family. Holverson's body was sent to his family and was buried in Woodlawn Cemetery in New York.

This letter is amongst the most iconic onboard the Titanic that we have ever seen. It is oversized, hand written on Titanic letterhead by a victim just a day before the ship hit the iceberg, mentions the food, the music and the elite on board, contains an ominous message with regards to the fate of the ship, was carried by its author into the Atlantic and, thence, onto the body recovery ship and shows evidence of its immersion in salt water. As such it ranks as one of the most important items of ephemera from Titanic that have ever been offered for auction, a truly world class example of Titanic memorabilia.
Provenance: From the Family of Alexander Oskar Holverson.
£60000-80000
345.    R.M.S. TITANIC - THE SILVER DOLLAR COIN RECOVERED FROM TITANIC VICTIM JOHN GILL'S POCKET: John William Gill was a Second Class Titanic passenger travelling to America to seek his fortune as well as a new home for himself and his newlywed wife who remained in England. Gill died in the sinking. His body was the 155th to be recovered by the cable laying ship Mackay-Bennett. Though there was some initial confusion regarding its disposition, Gill's body was buried at sea. Numerous objects were recovered from his body and catalogued before they were returned to his widow. One of the items returned was this 1889 U.S. silver dollar coin which Gill had acquired to spend in America. Gill's widow could not spend it in England and retained it along with Gill's other effects which remained in the family for some time. The coin was included in the list of recovered body effects prepared by the provincial coroner of Nova Scotia. The items returned to Gill's widow, along with various correspondence and related items, constituted the most complete archive of personal items relating to any Titanic victim known to exist. Henry Aldridge & Son was pleased to be able to offer the entire archive for sale in its April 2002 Titanic and White Star Line auction. The coin could easily form the centre piece of any collection. It tells a very real story not only of the Gills but of the hopes and dreams shattered by the tragedy that befell so many on the ship that night. That a coin belonging to Gill survived the disaster while Gill, himself, did not is poignant. This may be the last opportunity to acquire this important piece of Titanic's story.
Provenance Henry Aldridge & Son April 2002. £3000-5000
346.    R.M.S. TITANIC: Extremely rare pair of Titanic corroded iron locker keys belonging to Sidney Daniels, the last surviving member of the Titanic's crew. These keys are exceptional as they are the only known examples belonging to concurrent lockers. Each has a matching brass tag stamped locker 41 F Deck and locker 42 F Deck on a single ring.

On the night of the sinking Daniels reported that he was in his bunk when a night watchman came in and told them to get dressed and up on deck. He recalled assisting women and children to the boats until all but the last two collapsible boats remained. He assisted working at collapsible B until he described being up to his knees in water; following a quick glance around the deck he jumped up onto the rail beside a davit and struck out for the water where he swam around for a couple of minutes before climbing aboard collapsible B. Sid reported men saying the Lord's prayer in unison. He also said that he informed a man near to him that he was exhausted and needed to sleep; the man berated him and told him to stay awake otherwise he might not wake up again. The occupants of the upturned boat were later rescued and taken aboard Carpathia. Sid later returned home aboard the Lapland. (Courtesy Encyclopaedia Titanica)These were in Mr Daniels's pocket during his escape and subsequent rescue. When war broke out in 1914, he served with the Royal Army Service Corps. He passed away in 1983 aged 89.
