1Title:  Gold und Anker, oder, Der Vetter aus Californien =: Gold and anker, or, The cousin from California = L'or et l'ancre, au [sic], Le cousin de Californie   
 Creator:   
 Notes:  A game of uncertain origin and undetermined rules of play involving, presumably, the California gold rush of 1848-1852. Title from top of box. The English title would today be Gold and anchor. Includes five illustrated, numbered, and captioned cards on stiff paper (each, 9 x 13 cm). Captions for the cards: 1. The gray horse. Schimmel. Le cheval blanc -- 2. Gold. Gold. L'or -- 3. Anker. Anker. L'ancre -- 4. Gold and anker. Gold und Anker. L'or et l'ancre -- 5. The house. Das Haus. La maison. Cards 2, 3, and 4 each have two small black-and-white images in the upper corners, an anchor or a bag of gold, or both; cards 1 and 5 do not. The five cards show, first, wagon train on the move; second, a fight between two men at a mine next to a body of water; third, a scene on the deck of a ship; fourth, a scene in a shaded area near a waterside mine; fifth, a family welcoming the father on his return from a hunting trip. Cards are lithographed and hand colored, as is top of box. Illustration on top of box (signed: PD) features a sailor in the center carrying a bag of gold, with an anchor, a sea chest, a model ship, and a flag behind him. He is surrounded on either side by well-wishers of all ages whose figures seem to be growing out of plants and flowers.

10Title:  [Western Americana transfer china collection]   
 Creator:   
 Notes:  A collection of ten pieces of transferware made by manufacturers in England, France, and Austria, which had been decorated with images related to the American West before being exported to the United States. Four black transfer-printed plates (21 cm) with images depicting scenes of excitement and disillusionment during the California Gold Rush. The plates each have a different central image and numbered caption, and each bears a backstamp of "LeBeuf, Milliet et Cie / Medailles d'or 1834 39 44 et 49 / Porcelaine opaque / Creil & Montereau." Designs are: "No. 4 Le gouverneur trouve le moyen d'attacher les sentinnelles a leur consigne"; "No. 10 Pour conserver son or, il ne faut dormir que d'un oeil"; "No. 11 Captaine, j'ai gagne un million aux mines, je veux retourner en france..."; and "No. 12 Bilboquet montrant au public les echantillons d'or de la Californie." Louis-Martin Lebeuf and Jean Baptiste Gratien Milliet became partners in the pottery business in 1841. One dark blue transfer-printed soup plate (25 cm) with slightly scalloped edges bearing an image of the Nauvoo Temple constructed by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Nauvoo, Illinois. The border contains the names of the Bretheren of the Mormon church, and the central view depicts a temple building with cupola and angel weathervane, encircled by the inscription "The House of the Lord Built by the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter Day Saints Commenced April 6th, 1841. Holiness to the Lord." Beneath the central image is the inscription "Temple of Nauvoo / Wm. Weeks -- Archit t/c" The plate is marked with the backstamp of "J Twigg." Joseph Twigg established his pottery in Newhill, Yorkshire, in 1809. One purple transfer printed plate (24 cm) with a central image of men on horseback dressed in unidentified European military uniforms passing two men seated on the ground; a fortress and palm trees appear in the background. The plate has slightly scalloped edges and a border with alternating images of the Roman goddess Ceres and a banner draped over a drum, sword, horn, and other military items. It is marked with the backstamp of "Texian Campaigne" within a fan-shaped cartouche with "J. B." beneath it. Texian Campaigne china was produced by several manufacturers to commemorate the war between Mexico and the United States (1846-1848), but the pattern was created before that war and probably marketed to commemorate Texas's revolution for independence against Mexico, 1835 to 1836. James Beech operated the Lion Works in Tunstall from 1821 to 1844, and likely introduced his Texian pattern about 1837 to 1840. One brown transfer printed plate (20 cm) with slightly scalloped edges rimmed in gold and a central image of two buildings with the inscription "Baranoff Castle, Sitka, Alaska" beneath. Hand-painted flowers appear above and below the transfer print. The number "32" is painted on the reverse and there is no backstamp. The buildings shown were constructed by the Russian-American Company and include the Governor's House, which was built in 1836 and destroyed by fire in 1894. One cup and saucer (saucer 14.5 cm) with a transfer-printed image of tents, a pond, and horses on one side, and the inscription "A Horse Round-Up Near Billings, Mont." beneath the image. The cup and saucer are gilt-edged and both bear a backstamp of "Wheelock Imperial Austria / Made for Yegen Bros. Billings, Mont." The Yegen Brothers drygoods store was established in Billings in 1894, the same year Charles Wheelock and John Roth, importers and retail merchants of china and glassware in Peoria, Illinois, began working with European manufacturers to create souvenir china decorated with American scenes. Also present is one white porcelain teacup (6 x 7 cm) with no transfer pattern. It is unmarked. Box 1 contains Nauvoo Temple soup plate. Box 2 contains four French plates. Box 3 contains Texian Campaigne and Baranoff Castle plates. Box 4 contains two cups and one saucer. Title devised by cataloger.

11Title:  John B. Goodman collection, 1919-1991   
 Creator:  Goodman, John B. (John Bartlett), 1901-1991 
 Notes:  The "California Gold Rush Fleet Encyclopedia of Vessels Sailing from the East Coast of the United States and Canada for San Francisco, December 7-1848-December 31, 1849" comprises individual histories of 762 ships as well as various subject files, arranged in alphabetical order. Goodman records a broad spectrum of information derived from a variety of sources about the multitude of Gold Rush vessels. The bulk of the manuscripts are photocopies and some are heavily annotated in the author's hand. Some histories include hand colored illustrations of maps and ships. They were written and edited between 1970-1991. Note: This collection of factual data is also made available in tabular form for "instant recall" in The Key to the Goodman Encyclopedia of the California Gold Rush Fleet as published by the Zamarano Club in 1992. The addenda box includes various illustrations, lists, and statistics regarding the California Gold Rush vessels. The contents are arranged alphabetically by subject. Boxes 13-18 contain the original typescripts to "Goodman's Encyclopedia of the California Gold Rush Fleet." The contents are arranged alphabetically by ship name. Boxes 19-23 consist of manuscripts and related matter regarding the California Gold Rush. Box 19 contains another version of Goodman's Gold Rush encyclopedia with very few corrections. Folders 5 and 6 are Goodman's draft of factual data in tabular form entitled "The John B. Goodman III Cellular Computer for the 1849 Gold Rush Fleet." Also included is a manuscript of "For California: Direct in 1849-List of Mining Companies Formed in Various States & Sailed from Various Atlantic Seaports." The last two items are photocopies and miscellaneous notes from the San Jose Pioneer. Boxes 20-21 consist of manuscripts and notes removed from two binders. The first binder housed miscellaneous materials accumulated by Goodman pertaining to the California Gold Rush vessels. Subjects found in this binder included a tally of Gold Rush vessels built, a list of ship and map illustrations, a list of arrival and departures, bibliography of works consulted, list of mining companies sailing for California, names of captains and their vessels, list of store ships, and other assorted lists. The second binder consisted of "Boats Arriving in San Francisco Bay," which are notes and excerpts extracted from the San Francisco Weekly, Tri-Weekly, and Daily Alta California. Also removed from this binder is an orange folder with a chronological list of vessels sailing from New York for California and Way Ports from December 7, 1848-December 31, 1849. The last two items in Box 21 are two books: "Index to the Argonauts of California" by Charles Warren Haskins and "A Reminiscence of Parker H. French Expedition through Texas & Mexico to California in the Spring of 1850." Boxes 22-23 consist of clippings, notes, journals, photographs, printed matter, and other materials related to the California Gold Rush. The excerpts and notes are from various publications, which include the Boston Daily Evening Transcript, New York Daily Herald, and New York Tribune. The photographs consist of images of the West from Goodman's personal collection and reproductions of San Francisco photographs from the San Francisco Public Library. The manuscripts and printed matter includes personal stories, autobiographies, and journeys of individuals such as Meredith Tarlton Moore, a soldier in the Mexican War and a trader on the California Trail, and Jacob Marhoffer, a prominent citizen of Crescent City, California. Boxes 24-27 include materials related to Goodman's unpublished manuscript "An Annotated Bibliography of California County Histories." Boxes 24-25 are photocopies of the typescript. Box 26 contains another version of Goodman's California county histories. These were once contained in a binder and appear to be an earlier version of the photocopies in Boxes 24 and 25. Box 27 includes additional pages from Goodman's bibliography. The bulk of these pages are fragments and duplicates. Other contents in Box 27 include correspondence, maps, notes, negatives and prints related to California counties. llustrations are found in Boxes 28-29 and two oversize folders. Box 28 includes pen and ink and rough sketches for John W. Wood, an unknown manuscript, in Goodman's hand. The bulk of these illustrations depict life on the Overland Trails and in the mines. The first folder consists of miscellaneous notes and maps regarding these illustrations. The contents are arranged alphabetically by the caption or title of the illustration. Some of these illustrations include preliminary sketches and prints. Box 29 includes 33 folders of miscellaneous illustrations and ephemera. The bulk of these illustrations are in the hand of Goodman while others are prints. They were possibly done in relation to his work as an art director for Paramount and Universal Studios from 1932-1946. The first oversize folder contains thirty-three printed illustrations for the Thompson and West publication of "History of Santa Barbara County, California." The second oversize folder consists of four miscellaneous sketches and ephemera.
