One evening in 1936, a 42-year-old businessman sat down at home at 638 Prospect Street, Maplewood, New Jersey, for some leisure reading. Later that year, Smith wrote Morley on October 28th that he had a€?acquired a country hang-out .
The Pips held their annual dinners at membersa€™ homes, but Smitha€™s plan to host the 1941 Pips dinner at Thorneycroft on December 12th was aborted by Pearl Harbor. The Smiths had a year or so weekending at Thorneycroft, but wartime gasoline rationing made it difficult, Smith told Starrett in September 1942, and in May 1944 he sold it. Most of Smitha€™s Irregular business, though, was transacted at his office in the General Motors Building at 1775 Broadway, New York. Highcroft Cottage had one large room, 15x21, with a flagstone floor, four windows on two sides (one nearly nine feet in length), and a fireplace at one end. We walked down to the garden to that little wooden cabin, in size not unlike Black Petera€™s, which was veritably the 221B of Edgara€™s dreams. Smith was supposed to go to Europe on business in September 1960 when he died suddenly of a cerebral hemorrhage, a few days after Prestigea€™s visit. In 2000, Epstein permitted Irregulars Henry Boote, Ted Friedman, Irving Kamil, Warren Randall, George Sturm, and David Galerstein to visit the property. Epstein sold off eight acres in 1961, and the remainder will be developed now, for it lies in a very desirable part of Morristown. 1 See Glen Mirankera€™s chapter, a€?Prolegomenon to a History of The Pamphlet House,a€? in Irregular Records of the Early a€™Forties.

Description: This map is justifiably considered by many scholars to be the finest cartographic production of its age.
As royal cosmographer, it was Riberoa€™s duty to revise the patron real [padron general], the standard or official map, as new data was brought back by the pilots from their voyages of discovery.
In 1524 Ribero was also a member of the Conference of Badajos that was assembled to settle the dispute as to whether the Philippine Islands lay within the part of the world allotted by the Treaty of Tordesillas to Spain or to Portugal. In 1526 Ribero was a prominent member of the junta of pilots at Seville, under the presidency of Ferdinand Columbus. The map shown here, the Propoganda map, is the one now in the Biblioteca Apostalica Vaticana, Vatican City. Beginning on the northern part of the North American continent, on the coast of Tiera de Labrador [Greenland] a brief inscription reads: The English discovered this country.
Tierra de los Baccallos [Newfoundland], which is still a part of the mainland as on the map of Ruysch (#313), is thus described: The land of cod fish discovered by the Corte Reals and where they were lost. Tiera De EstevA? Gomez commemorates the voyage made in 1525 by Estevan Gomez, the captain of the San Antonio, who deserted Magellan and returned to Spain. On his return voyage, Gomez saw the Bermuda Islands, which were rediscovered long after by Gates and Somers in 1610. Tiera De Garay, north of the Gulf of Mexico, was so named for Francis de Garay, the Governor of Jamaica, who in 1519 sent Pineda to find a strait through the land to the a€?South Seaa€? recently discovered by Balboa.
Nueva EspaA±a, or Mexico, has the following inscription: Nueva EspaA±a is thus called because it contains many things [of the kind found] in Spain.
The northern coast of Brazil has this inscription: All over this coast, from Rio dulce to the Cape of San Roque, nothing of account has been found. Tiera Del Brazil has this legend: Here, the only thing of value is the brazil [dyewood], which costs only the trouble of cutting and carrying it to the vessels, which the Indians do for very little.
The La Plata region of South America was first explored by Juan de Solis, who, in 1512, succeeded Vespucci as Pilot Major. The following inscription on Tiera De Patagones, or the Country of the Patagonians, discloses that Ribero was familiar with the description of that country which was brought back to Spain in 1522 by the survivors of the Magellan expedition: Those who inhabit that land where Fernam de Magellan found the strait, are men of large bodies, almost giants, covered with skins of beasts. As can be seen there are a multitude of place-names on the coasts of all of the continents.


Further north, on the west coast of the modern day United States, but relating to the Atlantic coast, the inscription reads as follows: Everywhere on this northern coast the Indians are taller than those of Santo Domingo and other islands. In accordance with the recommendations of the Spanish members of the Conference at Badajos that all Spanish maps should thereafter locate the Line of Demarcation, Ribero drew such a line 370 leagues west of San Antonio, the westernmost of the Cape Verde Islands, using it as the initial meridian. The route or track taken by the famous Magellan expedition in 1519-20 is marked on Riberoa€™s map by drawings of his first two ships, the Victoria and the Trinidad. As mentioned earlier, several of Riberoa€™s famous large planispheres, impressively executed in the style of nautical charts, as well as a plan of the western hemisphere, have been preserved and are found today in the libraries of Mantua (the 1525 map), the Vatican (1529), Weimar (1527 and 1529), and WolfenbA?ttel (1532).
Typical of Riberoa€™s world maps is their decoration, which depicted quadrants, astrolabes (bottom left and right) and text providing the rules of navigation and information about various countries. On the Propoganda map, specifically, there are Indians, monkeys, opossums, rheas and parrots which were becoming familiar on the South American scene; but Ribero also adds deer, a jaguar, a possible bear, a dragon, some birds and a number of small animals that are difficult to interpret, but, according to Wilma George, give the impression of some of the South American rodents such as the mara, chinchilla and viscacha.
This detail of the Pacific Ocean on the Vaticana€™s a€?Propogandaa€? edition of 1529 shows a quadrant (lower left) and circular figure for finding solar declination (dominating the central Pacific), both with accompanying instructions.
Detail: Eastern Hemisphere from the 1529 Propoganda or Second Borgian edition of Riberoa€™s map.
In 1524 Ribero was also a member of the Conference of Badajos that was assembled to settle the dispute as to whether the Philippine Islands lay within the part of the world allotted by the Treaty of Tordesillas to Spain or to Portugal.A  This conference dissolved without agreement, but Spain retained control of both groups of islands until 1528, when Charles V sold his claim to the Spice [Moluccan] Islands to Portugal as part of the Treaty of Saragossa. Tiera De Garay, north of the Gulf of Mexico, was so named for Francis de Garay, the Governor of Jamaica, who in 1519 sent Pineda to find a strait through the land to the a€?South Seaa€? recently discovered by Balboa.A  Pineda sailed along the northern coast of the Gulf of Mexico as far west as the river Panuco, discovering a large river, the R.
As mentioned earlier, several of Riberoa€™s famous large planispheres, impressively executed in the style of nautical charts, as well as a plan of the western hemisphere, have been preserved and are found today in the libraries of Mantua (the 1525 map), the Vatican (1529), Weimar (1527 and 1529), and WolfenbA?ttel (1532).A  Fragments of a world map produced in 1530, probably for a member of the important Augsburg merchant dynasty the House of Welser, are preserved in the Studienbibliothek, Dillingen on the Danube.
A woman with a single long shinning braid was inside stirring something in a cauldron at the hearth.
There was also someone standing on top of the bluff looking down with a pensive look on her face.
In the large back yard between the River beach and the bluffs on the north side of the Clan-House in the middle of the lawn a huge fire pit had been built. One of us had been merged with the hearth stones listening to the slow heart beat of the stones guarding the hearth.
We all gathered (the Ancestors joined us) in the dragonsa€™ cavern taking the food and drink with us. Jennifer sat alone in a dark room listening to the kitchen talk and the activities in other places. It is getting close to the time that we will need to say good-bye and go back to the Main Lodge.
As we pursue this work about the communal hearth, great promise, blessing, harvest will come our way. The honey bees, wolves and horses reminded us that they too are a tribal people, just like the monkey people (human beings). Layers of writing and art are recorded on the walls of the hearth, layer upon layer forming sigils that cover the walls.
Death told us to look into his red eyes, to honor the stone people, to notice the red stone (the red stone are his eyes?).
Anubis: a€?I am he who lives on the cypress (cedar?) mountaina€? [This is the second time Anubis has referred to this. Starrett was then on the other side of the world, but returned in 1937 and sent Smith a reply that began a cordial correspondence lasting twenty-three years. In his notice, Smith had given the location as a€?Madisonville Road, corner North Maple Avenuea€? in Basking Ridge, with explicit directions: a€?turn off at Morristown center (around square) into Route 32 (Bernardsville).
There he had the secretarial resources to be the BSIa€™s Buttons and to edit works like Profile by Gaslight and, beginning in late 1945, the Baker Street Journal. He had started to look for a retirement site after the war, and in 1950 had bought sixteen acres of wooded land a couple of miles west of pleasant and historic Morristown. The papers mention a€?quasi-Victoriana€? chairs and a sofa, and a portrait of Sherlock Holmes by Smitha€™s son Edgar P.
Here we looked over the wonderful library, the editions of the Canon, the variant illustrations, the Beetona€™s, the volumes of higher criticism, the collections of essays, the correspondence with President Roosevelt, and all those other gems of Sherlockian learning that made Edgar W. He remained active as a management and international trade consultant, and traveled a good deal, for pleasure as well as business: to Europe repeatedly, to Egypt once, to Hawaii, and no doubt elsewhere a€” usually by ocean liner, in that final decade of elegant travel. They inspected the cottage (then used to store swimming-pool equipment), and were permitted to remove the plaque placed there 40 years before. Smitha€™s cottage is demolished, the plaque commemorating its role will remain in our hands.
The large declination table incorporating a calendar and, uniquely among Riberoa€™s charts, illustrations of the signs of the zodiac and a wind rose. Located immediately to the south of the fiercely contested and strategically important Molucca Islands and flanked with the standards of Castile and of Portugal, which fly from poles of unequal length placed at unequal distances from its top. We walked down a path through the woods down the bluffs to the bank of the River where we found the same white docks that we have used before. They stood in the midst of the apple orchard and watched as apples were transformed into a pies (good red blood), then eaten and shat out to a new beginning! He seemed to ponder this and pointed out a€?6 months of suppliesa€? He seemed to speak and show visions of carefully stocked pantries and community being able to a€?take care of itself by combining effortsa€™ for 6 months. He seemed to ponder this and pointed out a€?6 months of suppliesa€?A  He seemed to speak and show visions of carefully stocked pantries and community being able to a€?take care of itself by combining effortsa€™ for 6 months.A  He asked a€?what must die for room to be made? It was The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes by Vincent Starrett, and the reader was Edgar W.


He told Smith about the BSI, and put him in touch with Christopher Morley, though it was two years before Morley called another BSI dinner that Smith could attend. Of the three houses at the corner of Madisonville and Maple today, planning board records indicate that Thorneycroft is 173 Madisonville Road, a a€?Second Empirea€? house built around 1885.
His secretary a€?Deea€? Alexander, who worked for him from 1946 through 1948, reported that Smith dictated most of his BSI correspondence to her, while occasionally bring-ing handwritten drafts from home to be typed.
221B Baker Street, Morristown, until Smitha€™s death in 1960, was the headquarters of the BSI. The property was sold to an elderly couple whose heirs soon resold it to Herbert Epstein, the owner of the local independent department store, who lived there until his recent death. Remembering William Gillettea€™s concern for his Connecticut castle, the idea has been floated to move it to some local park and preserve it, as a€?The Knothole,a€? Morleya€™s writing shack from the grounds of his Roslyn, Long Island, home, has been. The text in the boxes explains how to read solar declination off of the figure and the accompanying latitude scale (given the date), how to use the quadrant, and how to calculate latitude given the solar declination and the suna€™s height at noon. Some of the Indians came on board, and asked to be carried [away, and] they died afterwards at sea.A  According to Pigafetta, those Indians, so far from having left of their own accord, were treacherously chained and kidnapped. We made our ways over the River in a variety of ways: some boated, some swam, some walked over and under the water. Images of a wide variety of folks sitting at a heavily laden table enjoying a great feast appeared on the canvas. It then brought her gifts: a perfect pumpkin, a book (an old treasure for people who have come through this place), a large rough red stone (ruby or garnet) with flames inside of it. When we were done we made our way up the bluff to the Main Hall where we ate delicious fresh baked home-made pie.
The photograph shows it during the 40-year occupancy of the original owner, the secretary-treasurer of the Childs Restaurant chain. In 1953 he built his retirement home with a swimming pool there, but this was preceded on the property in 1951 by Highcroft Cottage.
The cottage, and the house that followed (dubbed Holmcroft), were the only dwellings on the private quarter-mile drive Smith cut from the countya€™s Lake Road bordering the property.
There were Smitha€™s Irregular papers, his Sherlock Holmes collection, and, in the kitchen turned into a storeroom, his stock of BSJ back issues and other BSI publications.
For some time he continued to receive mail addressed to 221B Baker Street, which he forwarded to Edgar W.a€™s son Edgar P.
The astrolabe, which is dated 1529, carries a shadow scale; the inscription below identifies it as a marinera€™s instrument. Lawrence, mention is made of an archipelago, which may refer to the Iles de la Madeleine, borrowed apparently from some Portuguese map of the Fagundes expeditions.A  On the northwest coast there is a Rio solo and, on the Pacific coast, what the Weimar Ribero calls R.
So far had Smith come that it contained his biographical dictionary of the Canon, Appointment in Baker Street, published the year before by Smitha€™s own a€?Pamphlet Housea€? imprint. It is large for a a€?country hang-out,a€? but the Smiths were numerous, with a son from Mrs.
As the drive ran entirely inside his property, he persuaded Morris Townshipa€™s supervisors to let him name it Baker Street, with a street sign at his expense.
How many visitors there were in its six years of Irregular occupancy is unknown, but the 1958 dinner of The Five Orange Pips took place there, and other pilgrimages as well. Also in the works were red-covered incunabula reprinted by the BSI, Inc., and collections like Introducing Mr.
The world maps in the Vatican, Dillingen and WolfenbA?ttel also feature masterful drawings of mountains, trees, castellated towns, ships, birds and mammals.
The astrolabe shown by Ribero is not the standard marinera€™s version, but a a€?quadrante horarioa€?, as described in the inscription next to the drawing. Smith did not neglect Sherlock Holmes on weekends; for example, it was from there that Smith wrote to President Franklin Roosevelt on July 27, 1942, offering him membership honoris causa in the BSI (which FDR accepted). Smitha€™s first marriage a€” she was a young French war widow when they met around 1919 a€” and three of their own. Horary quadrants were usually used on land to tell the time; they incorporated features for taking measurements that were either unnecessary for navigation (such as the indirect determination of altitude or distance) or readily available in other forms (such as tables of solar declination). Although clearly labeled as an a€?[a]strolabio maritimeoa€?, it consists of a solid disc rather than an open wheel, and it has a shadow square on the back. Scion societies also grew in number, with letters (as Morley had once complained) that had to be answered.
Yet the inscription to the left of the quadrant on the chart describes not only how to use it to deter- mine the declination of the sun or stars, but also how to use the altimetric scale on it to find the height of a tower or of a flat surface, or the width of a river. Conclavers and bears carried the bowls outside and placed them on the large stone table in the front yard. Smitha€™s 221B Baker Street was a beehive of activity, at a time when he could no longer draw upon the secretarial support he had enjoyed at GM.
All four species have a very high potential of being nurtured and blessed by this alliance.
The inscription reads as follows: The country of Stephen Gomez, which he discovered at the command of his Majesty, in the year 1525.
