ESTATE SALE
of the late SHARON HEIST

UPDATED 8-25-16


  I'm sure that many of you knew the late Ms. Heist. She was a historian/genealogist. For many years she owned and operated the Wild Rose Emporium. At one time she was a reporter for the Navaho Times and had a keen interest in the American Southwest and it's native peoples. She also did extensive research on the U.S.C.T. and is well known by those who follow that line of work.
Sadly Ms. Heist passed away in 2015 leaving her estate to the church who's members had cared for her during the illness that lead up to her death. The church was overwhelmed with the amount of historical documents, books, artifacts and collectibles that were now in their possession. Knowing nothing else to do with them they offered them for sale. I bought a large amount of these goods.
  I never met Ms. Heist but knowing her to be a fellow historian I have strived to make sure that her legacy is given the respect it deserves. Many of her books are now in my library along with other research papers and artifacts but alas many of the remaining items are duplicates which I have no need for. Her interest were so varied that she covers many areas in which I have no interest. Therefor there is no need for me to keep them squirreled away when I can pass them on to others who will make better use of them.
  I will endeavor to list the goods here. This will be a single page, you will have to scroll. I will attempt to limit the items to just a few a week so as not to overwhelm you. But I will give you fair warning. When this is done the list will be very, very long.
  As I stated above some of the goods I will be listing I have little interest in said field. I will do my best to ask a fair or even under market price for them. Do not hesitate to "call me out" if I have something listed incorrectly or overpriced. I welcome your input and feel free to make an offer if you find my price to be unfair.
  Some of the items you will find here in the weeks to come will be, books, some rare and valuable, some rare but surprisingly inexpensive. Some will be common but not readily available. Navaho rugs and saddle blankets, some made by renowned artisans other unidentified. Southwestern pottery made by well known acclaimed potters. Tin types, Many beaded leather goods such as moccasins but too many things to list now. A cabinet photo album from the Booth family, Yes that Booth family! No photos of the black sheep though.
  With that said we will get to work. Sorry, I did not mean to write a term paper.

IF YOU ARE REVISITING THE PAGE AND AN ITEM IS NO LONGER LISTED - WELL THAT MEANS THAT IT HAS SOLD.

  1863 Remington rifle, pretty good condition. It's a good shooter. Good crisp trigger, half cock holds firm. Some scuffs on the stock finish as shown in photos. It's Italian made, .58 cal. It comes with the leather sling. There is one small hair line crack on the nose of the stock. It's so fine it's very hard to see. It does have the bayonet lug. Sorry, it's not a Zoli barrel.

TESORO SILVER SABRE




  This is a very good light weight metal detector. It's not the top of the line but it's priced right. Will dig a minnie ball at 4 inches no problem, deeper when the soil conditions are favorable. It has a variable discriminater and a head phone jack. It's so light weight you can carry it all day.

TESORO SILVER SABRE $129.95 BUY NOW!



1850's APOTHECARY BOTTLE




  This 10 inch tall, 3 inch wide APOTHECARY bottle has the pontil style end which dates it no later than the mid 1850's. The only flaw is the chip out of the glass "stopper" as shown in the photo. It is not visible when the stopper is in place. Easily a $50. bottle. It would make a great addition to any medical impression.

CHURCH'S INDIAN WARS FROM 1675 TO 1704




  This book is in very poor condition, boards are hanging by a thread, some light water damage on some of the pages. It's just generally beat to hell. But what's really cool about it? It's Church's Indian Wars! You'll be the only one on your block with one. Unless of course you live on my block. Then There will be two of us. This is the Hartford, Silus Andrus & son printing but there is no date. So is this the 1852 edition? One owner pened his name and the date 1857 on the front board.

I think it's priced very reasonable but if you feel that I do not I will entertain an offer .

1863 SPRINGFIELD FOWLER




  This is a typical war date production re-worked into a fowler. It is made from an 1863 Springfield. If I were a cavalryman this would be a carbine in about 20 minutes. Seems to be very sound. The barrel is clear as is the nipple. Half cock works perfectly. Nice trigger squeeze with a strong main spring. The stock is not beat up at all and the color is even. What else could you want at this price? Priced to sell.

I think it's priced very reasonable but if you feel that I do not I will entertain an offer .

1863 SPRINGFIELD FOWLER $495.95 BUY NOW!



CLASSICAL BODY GUITAR & CASE




  Nice older model Japanese made guitar. It is not scratched up and seems to be holding tune well. Bronze strings are on it now but of course you can change them out to cat gut if you so desire. Deep sound, the neck is straight. It would be hard to find a better guitar at this price. It comes with a semi-hard shell case. Certainly a great camp guitar.

I think it's priced very reasonable but if you feel that I do not I will entertain an offer .

CLASSICAL BODY GUITAR & CASE $99.95 BUY NOW!



WWI BLANKET




  Typical condition for a blanket of this age. The "made by" tag is long gone but you can see by the weave it is the standard blanket for the WWI era. It has about 6 very small moth holes, less than an 1/8 inch in size. The condition is such that I would not hesitate to use it in the field yet good enough for display as well. Priced to sell.

I think it's priced very reasonable but if you feel that I do not I will entertain an offer .

WWI BLANKET $29.95 BUY NOW!



OLD BROWN INK WELL

BEADED VEIL




  This beaded veil is awsome and the colors are incredible. This veil measures 16 inches long (that's from the forehead hanging down) and is over 12 inches wide at the top but it is constructed in such a way that it is wider as it goes down.

I think it's priced very reasonable but if you feel that I do not I will entertain an offer .

BEADED VEIL $129.95 BUY NOW!



TIN TYPE




  This civil war era tin type is in excellent condition. The subjet is a young lady approx. 15 years of age with a very unique blouse or dress top. I don't think I've ever seen another similar. She appears to be wearing silver combs or clasp in her hair. The corners of the tin type are clipped.

TIN TYPE A $9.95 BUY NOW!



TIN TYPE




  This civil war era tin type is in very good condition. The subjet is a mature lady approx. ? years of age. The dress and hair style are typical of 1855. But the revenue stamps on the back date this one as late war. Just goes to show the older a lady is the less likely she is to adopt the latest fashions. The dress is silk with attached lace trim, she is wearing lace mitts. The white collar has a brooch attached.
The backmark is; E.L. Willis Milford Ms.

TIN TYPE C $9.95 BUY NOW!



BOOTH FAMILY PHOTO ALBUM




  This is something you will never likely see again. This is a cabinet card photo album which belonged to Albert F. Booth. It contains 30 cabinet cards. The question is, "What relation, if any is Albert to the famous Booth brothers"? Well I wish I knew. I believe it is a real possibility and here's why. #1. All of the young men in this photo album who are of age to be the next generation of Booths bear a striking resemblance to the famous Booth brothers. #2. I found one newspaper account from the right time and place that says that Albert was a music director. #3. The album has 15 photos of the most famous actors and opera stars of the day. You may find this hard to believe but opera stars of that time period were the equivalent of today's rock stars, only with fewer cars in the swimming pools. #4. One of these cabinet cards is of Edwin Booth which commonly sells for $150.00, it is one of his rarer poses dressed as Hamlet. There are also 2 newspaper clippings regarding the death of Annie L. Cary, one of the most popular of the opera stars.
  I believe there are 5 maybe 6 cabinet cards of Adelina Patti, said to have been second in popularity only to Jenny Lind. I believe her to be the most photographed women of the 19th century. I have not been able to find any of the poses that are in this album anywhere else! She lived until 1919 and was recorded. You can still buy her album today.   There is one photo of Ernesto Nicolini, one or two of Annie Cary, one of Jean De Rexzke the Polish tenor. One that I believe to be of Selma Kronold and several yet to be identified. I will be the first to admit that there is nothing conclusive about the evidence presented here. But I would not be surprised at all to find that Albert is a cousin to Edwin and that he has some ties to the Booth Theater in NY. But speculation is not proof therefor I will only ask the price of the famous photos and disregard the possibility of a John F. Booth connection. I will post photos of each very soon. I have not I.D.ed all of the actors and singers.
  The value of the album itself is very little. You could find it in any antique store with no photos for $20 or less.
