THE MARITIME ART OF HEWITT JACKSON

By Thomas Vaughan and Bruce T. Hamilton

NORTHWEST MARITIME

MEMORABILIA IS RAPIDLY DISAPPEARING


FACTUAL REPRESENTATION

OF OUR WESTERN TREASURES

Folks, rarely do I find a ocean going treasure as the artist pictures here. Hewitt Jackson is the acknowledged dean of maritime painters of the Northwest Coast. This publication has done an excellent job of reproducing his paintings along with a detailed text of his work. It is simply entitled:

ARTIST HEWITT JACKSON

RE-CREATES THE PAGEANT OF

NORTHWEST MARITIME EXPLORATION

so sit down and get ready for a treat of great art along with a history of the ships of the northwest. There were many a western story published – the common ones about Cowboys and Indians are listed on Ebay every day but the rarer ones about the SHIPS of the old west like this one are seldom found. Collectors treasure them and their price guide value rises every day. They are hard to find. I hunt them out because really the better, untold and rarer stories were published in the rest.

Here’s one of ‘em.

FOLLOWING PURCHASE AND PAYMENT, IF YOU WILL WRITE ME OF YOUR SPECIAL NAME OR INTEREST, I WILL DO A FREE SEARCH OF MY WEBSITE AND UNINDEXED STORIES AND NAMES.

WWW.GENEALOGYIMAGESOFHISTORY.COM

IF I FIND SOMETHING THAT I THINK MERITS YOUR INTEREST, I WILL WRITE A REVIEW AND PLACE IT ON EBAY AND GIVE YOU NOTICE AND A HEAD START TO

BUYITNOW!

Following my retirement, I have dedicated my remaining hours to indexing the Genealogy of our western pioneers. During my research, I discovered that thousands of our kinfolk lay unfound and unrecognized on some book dealer’s shelf. Because Old Western History and Memorabilia was printed before computer indexing, I index every item I sell.

This complete index will be bound and included in this offering at no additional cost.

Humbly, I am trying to keep our history alive

I hope you appreciate the effort.


Folks, sooner or later - Genealogists are going to realize that their family kinfolks are laying on some dealer's dusty shelves. If I can contribute to finding one little name or photo of that long lost ancestor you have been waiting to find, it’s worth all the time I spend.

THE MARITIME ART OF HEWITT JACKSON

By Thomas Vaughan and Bruce T. Hamilton

NORTHWEST MARITIME

MEMORABILIA IS RAPIDLY DISAPPEARING

While others clip ads from magazines, I save history. It’s a shame that our past is being lost. It’s as simple as that.

My wife kids me that after I find a piece I like, buy it, read it, research it, take a picture, scan it, write the blurb, pay the Ebay entry fee and commission, that I end up making about 50 cents an hour. But, OH HOW I LOVE THIS OLD WESTERN HISTORY. What a story, Rare Story!!! Great Pictures. You will love it as it was published in this old complete western magazine printed on heavy slick paper many years ago. The issue is in good condition, the cover is in vibrant color.

As clearly stated in my description, this is featured story in a rarely found and seldom read unusual and complete western magazine. I don't give out name of publication or date because I have caught competitors copying my index and work and trying to sell it as theirs. I hope you understand.

Buyer pays postage of $3.50 Media Mail Postage to U. S.; $4.75 Priority; $11.00 for International Mail. Texans must pay 8-¼ % sales tax. Thanks,

Tom
