The shipwreck that saved Jamestown or “The Tempest”

The wreck of the Sea Venture on Bermuda on July 28, 1609 and the role its survivors played in the eventual rescue of the failing colony at Jamestown are dramatic tales from the founding years of our nation. A little-known but well-speculated fact is that Shakespeare’s play “The Tempest” gathered inspiration from the event also.

NW Limited...History in Vogue carries this framed historic map of Jamestown created for the quadricentennial in May 2007 with the USPS first day of issue stamps and postmark commemorating the event - click on the image to visit our site

The Sea Venture, sailing from England to the desperately needy Jamestown with supplies, was wrecked off the future colony of Bermuda.   Although believed lost, the castaways survived for 10 months and then reluctantly finished the sail to Jamestown. 
Upon their arrival, they found a starving, almost completely decimated colony. 
Nearly successful in convincing Gates to abandon the endeavor, the fates intervened when another Virginia Company fleet vessel arrived as they were exiting the James River bound for England, and Gates turned around to salvage the Jamestown colony as well as England’s interest in the New World.

“As the battered Sea Venture headed for an island grounding on July 28, 1609, the voyagers guessed that they were landing on haunted Bermuda.”

 

From the History News Network article; “Thus it may be said that July 28, 2009 marks two quadricentennials. One is the unintended founding of Bermuda by castaways who came ashore on a rain-whipped day in 1609. The other is the birthday of a sprite, a wild man, and a mercurial magician, characters given life when a Jamestown shipwreck captured the imagination of a literary master and inspired an enduring tale called The Tempest”

50’s Fins & Chrome by way of American Graffiti

What are we on about?
The first Fifties Fins and Chrome piece is finished and ready for sale!

Each authentic autograph is displayed behind conservation glass in an 11 X 14 Framerica frame custom-built and ready to hang. $300

All autographs, stamps and first day issue postmarks are displayed on acid-free mats and behind conservation glass using Framerica frame moulding. $300

Here it is, a scene from the movie American Graffiti starring Ron Howard and Cindy Williams leaning against a 1958 Edsel, matted with the first day of issue postmarks (both digital and hand cancel) and stamps commemorating America’s love affair with classic cars; notably the decades of 1950-1960 where the cars looked like they could fly or swim and gleamed as they cruised the blacktop, decked out in all their finny, chromed glory.

Keep an eye on this edition, or drop us a line and let us know which 1950’s memory you’d like to own. 

503-338-6056 for inquiries.

Pete Rose signed

He didn’t make the Hall of Fame, but Pete Rose has joined the elite ranks of History in Vogue:

Signed by Pete Rose and Bob Friend

Signed by Pete Rose and Bob Friend

This piece, number 63 in our edition of 198 “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” pieces, is centered around an autographed photo of Bob Friend, the pitcher who threw Pete Rose’s first hit on 4-13-63.  The focus, however, is that of the career of Pete Rose, nicknamed “Charlie Hustle.” Bill has assembled an impressive array of mementos with which to illustrate Rose’s impressive career and its highlights.
The first card is dated 1963 and features Pete as the All Star Rookie. Next up is a 1986 card (year of retirement as an active player).
The card mounted with the autographed First Day Cover is 1978 along with the postmark of may 5, 1978 which was the date Rose collected his 3,000th career hit.
Also featured is a lifetime achievement pin, 4,526 hits from 1963-1986.
Finally, the “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” first day of issue stamp and postmark are what ensures this limited status paying tribute to the 100th anniversary of the song we all associate with the American pastime of Baseball.

Pete Rose has a lifetime Batting Average of .303 making him a natural to be included in History in Vogue‘s Take Me Out to the Ballgame edition.
