Hello, I just joined as well. I am looking for "fur company" related ephemera... "fur companies" that purchased furs, hides, pelts, etc from trappers. Specifically, I am looking for Trap Supply Catalogs, Fur Price Sheets, Fur Shipping Tags, Fur Co. Invoices, Fur Co. business cards, envelopes, stationary, advertising inserts... anything with "fur company" names printed on it!!!
Lots of war correspondence and documents:
most of everything else was sold last year --
seller is about 89 years old and broke, we are also selling a bunch of wood block prints and cards from her time inJapan. She was one of a small poetry group that Michiko belonged to... appreciate your advice. The kind of money Jane needs for her teeth I just plain do not have! Oh well...
That sounds like a definite breach of trust/unethical thing to do. I wouldn't.
Some other ideas, though:
* Buy them from her personally and keep them until it the Empress passes.
* Loan your friend the money using the letters as collateral.
* Find a trusted collector to loan the money with the letters as collateral. (But don't sell. That could just end up going wrong.)
Or, best is if she has something else to sell. If she has these items, it's hard to imagine that she doesn't have something else.
Obvious ideas, obviously.
I have been asked to sell a batch of personal letters and notes, cards, etc from the Empress Michiko of Japan to a woman friend (who now is elderly and needs dental work). Includes some private snapshots, etc The question is about ethics of doing this. The Empress Michiko is still living, the correspondence was meant to remain secret (often delivered by ladies in waiting) and I am concerned about the breach of trust...what does one do? These were supposed to be destroyed. Any advice?!
