. March 22, 2007

Ableauctions.com (AMEX:AAC) announced today that it will host Heritage Auction Galleries’ “Marketplace Auction” on March 28 and March 29, 2007, on eBay Live Auctions through its subsidiary iCollector.com.

This event will showcase a Samuel Hammond autographed letter, signed “S. Hammond,” regarding the silk trade with Japan. Hammond served under Nathaniel Green in the American Revolutionary War as a commander of cavalry. He commanded Georgia volunteers in the Creek War. President Thomas Jefferson appointed Hammond military and civil governor of upper Louisiana Territory. He later served as a member of the Eighth Congress. The letter is undated.

Also up for bid is a Lincoln manuscript document, signed in an unknown hand “Swett, Lawrence, Lincoln & Lamon D.Q.” Champaign Co., Ill., May 1855. In the case of George High, indicted for larceny, the lawyers ask that subpoenas be directed to the sheriffs of Warren, Mason and Iroquois Counties for four named witnesses, including John Noland, “to testify in behalf of the defendant.” A brief note by clerk (Thompson R.), Webber states that the subpoenas were issued on 23 April 1855.

Other items of interest include: a gold diamond ring totaling approximately 2.0 carats, a 19th century fitted collector’s cabinet in walnut with burl veneer marquetry doors, a print of the original etching “Monsieur Lemonnyer, A son devoir” by Jacques Leman, and a Chinese carved jade depicting a pavilion and pine trees in a tiered landscape above waves.
