News from mjdtools.com World Headquarters

G reetings from Avoca, New York where we are one week away from our Online Auction Weekend of September 25 & 26, 2020.

We have set up bidding so that bidding will end on 100 lots every half hour, according to the schedule below. The end times are now showing on the web site in the form of "countdown clocks" for each lot. Beginning on Monday, September 21, 2020, the current high bid amount will appear for each item in the auction. The following link is set up to allow bidders to go to the first lot ending in a specific time period as necessary. The file is available at https://www.mjdtools.com/ending_times.htm or by clicking HERE . Clicking on the middle row entry of "Lots 1 - 99" will take you to Lot 1 for that auction, clicking on "Lots 400-499" will take you to Lot 400 for that auction and so forth.

Lots will begin to end at the times shown below and no bids that have not been entered at that point will be processed. The "Bid Amount" box will disappear as bidding moves to the next 100 lots in the next half hour, and so on. We expect that this will reduce some of the burden on the server caused by ending all lots at the same time. Here is the schedule on which the lots will end:

Today's Featured Tool Description

F. Mc C. : Boxwood Surveyors Rules. Full Set Of 10. With Matching Offsets. Length: 12.00 Inches. An ENGINE DIVIDED RULE SET WITH MATCHING OFFSETS RULES by F. Mc. C. In the days before computer-assisted design programs removed the need for manual skill in the practice of drafting and surveying, maps were drawn with sets such as this. Comprised of a series of 5 rules (numbered 1A through 1E), each with its own graduation scale, expressed in feet to the portion of an inch, together with a corresponding "offset" rule which was used to facilitate the drawing of lines that deviated from the perpendicular, this magnificent set of rules is in absolutely unused condition. Complete with the original green felt-lined fitted mahogany case, this set of precisely graduated boxwood rules is a classic example of the high quality tools that were once a necessary accessory for draughtsmen and surveyors. Mint. (GOOD+). This item was sold on September 19, 2009 for $140.00. jpg_file

Just Added to the Auctions

jpg_file Lot 288. An ORIGINAL MID-NINETEENTH CENTURY ACCOUNT BOOK from the New Beford whaling ship, "Morning Star" as kept by J. & W.R. Wing & Company of New Bedford, Massachusetts between the years 1862 and 1863. At this time the Morning Star was under the command of Captain Hervey E. Luce. The manuscript volume chronicles various transactions and purchases made by the Morning Star, Captain Hervey E. Luce, and various crew members during an Atlantic Ocean voyage made from 1862-63. Entries include the purchase of oranges in large quantity at the Cape Verde island of St. Jago (today Santiago) and later at Pernambuco, Brazil. A rich source of Vitamin C, the oranges were likely procured in an effort to help prevent an outbreak of scurvy aboard ship. Straw hats were also a popular commodity among crew members, as was tobacco and pipes in which to smoke it. One crew member's purchases included a monkey jacket, presumably a jacket made of monkey fur. Other points of call mentioned include St. Catherine's (aka Santa Catarina) in southern Brazil and Fayal Island (aka Faial) in the Azores. Crew members referenced by name, aside from Capt. Luce, include Michael Solenda, Abraham Tripp, R. Dexter, Joseph Brass, L. West, Sid Stowell, Sylvanou Allen, Jack Brava, Antoino Bravo, Samuel Dexter, and John Jackson "the cook". The book remains in good to very good condition. Volume bound in original leather-backed marbled boards; moderate cover wear with spine well rubbed, heavy foxing to front and rear endpapers, generally clean throughout with ink bold and legible throughout. Volume contains 20 p. bearing manuscript entries including a tipped-in invoice from Pernambuco, with additional blank pages in middle; and measures approx 8" tall x 6 1/2" wide x 1/2" thick. From the Collection of Dave Englund, Seattle, Washington. (GOOD+).(500.00 - 1,000.00) Length: 8 Inches.
