    The 1966 FIFA World Cup is the only World Cup football tournament to have been won by England, who beat West Germany 4-2 in the final on July 30, 1966.

    The 1966 World Cup final is remembered by football fans for a number of reasons besides being England's only World Cup victory. The game was the first (and only) time that a player had scored three goals in a World Cup final, with Geoff Hurst scoring three of England's four goals.

    The game is also remembered for the controversy that surrounded England's third goal. Did Geoff Hurst's shot cross the line? 

    An Anglo-American Sporting Club boxing dinner evening menu signed handsomely by all 22 members of the 1966 England World Cup football team at the London Hilton on June 20, 1966. That's just three weeks before the tournament began and a mere 40 days before England lifted the trophy.

    • Accompanied by a letter from the Office of the Lord Chamberlain
    • A fascinating and well preserved insight into the “Wedding of the Century” from a guest’s perspective

    Charles and Diana’s 1981 wedding was one of the most widely watched TV broadcasts of all time, with billions tuning in from all around the world. Sadly their marriage was not a happy one and ended in a split in 1992. They were divorced in 1996. Diana was tragically killed in a car crash in 1997.

    In the years hence, memorabilia associated with Charles and Diana (and particularly items relating to the wedding) have become highly valuable. Demand has increased following the wedding of their sons Prince William (to Kate Middleton in 2011) and Prince Harry (to Meghan Markle in 2018).

    A couple (one of who was an employee of the Duchy of Cornwall) who attended the 1981 Royal Wedding kept these documents as a memento of the day.

    The set consists of:

    1. A gold bordered invitation (in its original monogrammed envelope)
    2. Car parking pass
    3. Two tickets for entry to St Paul’s Cathedral
    4. Three sheets displaying information on arrival times, dress code and parking
    5. Two large “Ceremonial” booklets, laying out the order of the day
    6. An order of service containing hymns, prayers and the text of the wedding vows
    7. A letter from the Lord Chamberlain’s office with arrangements for post-wedding refreshments

    This is the most comprehensive set of guest documentation we’ve come across from the 1981 Royal Wedding. A rare and intriguing collection with huge eye appeal.

  • John Lennon hair
    • A guaranteed genuine half inch strand of John Lennon's hair
    • Exceptional provenance - acquired from his barber Klaus Baruck in Berlin 

    John Lennon (1940-1980) was a leading member of The Beatles, the most successful pop group in history. Forming an incredible songwriting partnership with Paul McCartney, he penned some of the band's most famous hits, before going on to hold the most successful solo career following their split. 

    Ranked 8th in the BBC's 100 Greatest Britons list, and the fifth greatest singer of all time by Rolling Stone magazine, his enduring legacy continues to fascinate fans across the world. As a result, he is by far the most collectable Beatle, with his memorabilia achieving outstanding prices.

    We believe these to be the only strands of John Lennon's hair available on the market.

    You can own a single half-inch strand of John Lennon's hair trimmed in September 1966 in preparation for filming How I Won the War, along with a photocopy of Lennon's signed call sheet and certificate of authenticity from Heritage Auctions. 

    The hair originates from a $35,000 lot sold by Heritage Auctions in March 2016 (image of the total lot can be seen to the left).

    It was originally obtained directly from John Lennon's hairdresser Klaus Baruck, who trimmed Lennon's famous hair in Hamburg, Germany, just before Lennon's starring role as Gripweed in Richard Lester's dark comedy about a fictional British army troop and their misadventures in World War II.

    Included is a photocopy of the original one-page 8.5 x 11 inch mimeographed page titled "Petersham Films Limited/ Call Sheet No.13" which is dated September 6, 1966, and bears an interesting blue ink signature that reads: "John Lennon/ oh yes".

    John Lennon started wearing his iconic round glasses for this role. He continued wearing the same style for the rest of his life.

    The hair can be dated to a specific time and location and has been in the collection of the original owner for nearly 50 years.

    As an aside, this haircut took place just a month after the release of the legendary Revolver album.

    Presented on a display sheet ready for framing.

      Eric Horace Tyrrell-Martin (1905-1953) was an English international polo player who captained the English team in 1936. Born in Yorkshire, he attended Rugby and Cambridge before becoming a Lieutenant in the 16th Hussars. He married Edith 'Babs' in 1929, who was an exceptional sportswoman, playing tennis at Wimbledon and placing as a runner up in the All American Women's Golf Championship.

      Tyrrell-Martin had a colourful polo career: he captained the English polo team against America for the Westchester Cup at Hurlingham, and was invited to represent England at the Olympic Games in Berlin in 1936, but wasn't able to accept.

      He and Edith moved to California in 1936 and he spent much time travelling the world playing polo. He and Babs led a glittering social life with many famous friends and connections.

      They visited the Roosevelts at the White House in 1939, and with the backing of King Farouk, Tyrrell-Martin promoted and developed polo in Egypt. Tyrrell-Martin died in 1953 as a result of injuries sustained while playing polo.

      There are a small number of other trophies not inscribed.

      The first photo album contains approximately 100 photographs together with some newspaper cuttings. The second houses a collection of newspaper articles mostly tracking press coverage of the Westchester Cup at Hurlingham. It includes signatures from Gerald Balding (British) and Stewart B Inglehart and Winston FC Guest (America).

      There are also approximately 200 loose black and white photographs, some mounted. The largest measures 30cm x 39.5cm, with the majority at 18cm x 12cm or smaller. They depict polo matches, social events and family holidays.

    • Admiral Horatio Lord Nelson's Snuff Box

      Paul fraser collectibles

      Admiral Horatio Lord Nelson's Snuff Box

      £45,000.00

      • A hugely rare and intimate piece of British history: Admiral Horatio Lord Nelson's snuff box

      Admiral Horatio Lord Nelson (1758–1805) is one of the most celebrated figures in British history, best remembered for his heroic efforts during the Napoleonic wars.

      Nelson's career as a naval officer saw him lead the British fleet to several victories, during which he suffered injuries, including the loss of his right arm and the sight in his right eye.

      His most famous victory came in October 1805 at the Battle of Trafalgar, in which the Royal Navy decimated the combined fleets of the French and Spanish navies.

      Prior to the battle, Nelson sent out the famous message "England expects that every man will do his duty". Tragically, he was shot by a French sniper and died on board his ship the HMS Victory mid battle.

      His body was returned to England where he was granted a state funeral, and numerous monuments were erected in his honour, including Nelson’s Column in Trafalgar Square, London.

      This tortoiseshell composition snuff box was originally owned by Lord Nelson, and features a miniature watercolour scene of the Amalfi coast on the top.

      The box was gifted by Nelson to his personal secretary George Unwin, during a dinner party in Sicily in late 1798 or early 1799 which was also attended by Nelson's mistress, Emma, Lady Hamilton.

      Nelson had first met Hamilton in 1793 and the pair were reunited in 1798 following the Battle of the Nile.

      Having been severely injured, Nelson recuperated in Naples, during which time he was nursed back to health by Lady Emma and her elderly husband, Sir William Hamilton.

      It was during this period that Nelson and Hamilton began their famous love affair, which lasted until Nelson's death at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805.

      It seems highly possible that Nelson gave this gift to Unwin as a show of generosity, in an attempt to impress his mistress over dinner.

      The snuff box is offered along with a manuscript letter by Unwin's son, George, which reads in full:

      "My Father had either lost his own snuff box on going ashore or in some shop in Palermo and upon mentioning the circumstances at Lady Hamilton’s table where Lord Nelson was one of the party his Lordship handed over to him this identical box and desired him to keep it until he could get a better one."

      The box was later passed down to Unwin's own son George, then via his wife Anne Oxenham to her brother Rev. William Oxenham, and by descent through the family for several generations.

      A beautiful and rare item from one of Britain’s most famous heroes, and a small piece connected to one of history's greatest love affairs.

      Admiral Horatio Nelson Authentic Lock of Hair

      £15,000.00

       

      • An authentic lock of Admiral Horatio Nelson's hair presented in a circular agate box decorated with a gold band 

      Admiral Lord Horatio Nelson (1758-1805) was a British naval officer famous for his victories against the French during the Napoleonic Wars.

      Nelson was known for his superb leadership skills and somewhat unconventional strategies.

      Nelson was involved in battle almost constantly between 1793 until his death in 1805. During this time he lost the sight in his right eye at the Battle of Calvi in Corsica and lost his right arm at Santa Cruz in Tenerife.

      Admiral Lord Nelson is remembered as one of the greatest British war heroes in history. He died during the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805.

      This is a generous, fine, blonde lock of Lord Nelson's hair.

      The hair is housed in a beautifully carved, circular agate box decorated with a gold band. The box measures 4.5cm in diameter. A fragmentary enamel plaque attached to the lid of the box reads "N….05". The box is thought to date from between 1800 and 1810.

      This hair closely conforms to the other known examples of Nelson's hair and the box is similar in form to a locket which contained a lock of Nelson's hair that sold for £44,000 at auction in January, 2011.

      That locket also contained hair thought to have belonged to Lady Emma Hamilton who is known to have received Nelson's hair among other effects, after his death.

      This is a very rare opportunity to own a considerable lock of Lord Nelson's hair, contained neatly in a beautiful antique presentation box.

      Nelson (1758-1805) was a British naval officer famous for his victories against the French during the Napoleonic Wars. He was known for his superb leadership skills and somewhat unconventional strategies. Nelson was involved in battle almost constantly between 1793 until his death in 1805. During this time he lost the sight in his right eye at the Battle of Calvi in Corsica and lost his right arm at Santa Cruz in Tenerife. Admiral Lord Nelson is remembered as one of the greatest British war heroes in history. He died during the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805.

      This is the bottom half of a letter Admiral Nelson sent to Captain William G Rutherford (commander of the HMS Swiftsure) in June 1805. That's five months before the Battle of Trafalgar. Rutherford took command of the Swiftsure in May 1805, after Nelson appointed him to the position during the blockade of Toulon.

      The British blockaded the port, intending to draw out the French fleet. But the French, under Admiral Villeneuve, gave the British the slip and escaped through the Strait of Gibraltar – heading west to the Caribbean.

      Nelson took several ships (including the Swiftsure) and set off in hot pursuit. On June 4, 1805, the British fleet arrived into Barbados. Nelson had received word from the governor of St Lucia that the French had gone to Trinidad and Tobago. He picked up troops from Barbados, intending to smash the French. But on June 9 he learned the information was incorrect. The French fleet had actually gone north to Martinique. There they'd captured a strategic sea fort (Diamond Rock) and headed home.

      Dejected, Nelson ordered the fleet to return to Europe. They dropped the extra troops at Antigua on June 13.

      But this 6.5 x 8 inch letter dates to June 4-9, when Nelson still believes he's on the tail of the French fleet. He orders Rutherford to give troops the full complement of food and provisions, to steel them for the battle ahead.

      The letter is likely written by a secretary and reads: “…any distinction in victualling them would under the present circumstances be in my opinion very improper, it is my intention as we may soon be in Battle with the Enemy and the stay of the troops on board cannot be many days, that they shall be victualled the same as the respective ships companies.

      “It is therefore my direction that you cause the troops who may be embarked from Barbadoes onboard his majesty’s ship under your command to be victualled at full allowance of all species of provisions the same as your ships company during their continuance on board.”

      Below Napoleon signs “Nelson & Bronte”.

      Spanish King Ferdinand III appointed Nelson First Duke of Bronte in 1799, in thanks for his help in subduing a rebellion in Naples. Nelson was proud of his new title and incorporated it into his signature. He tried out a few different ways of writing it (including "Bronte Nelson of the Nile”) before settling on the current form. He changed his autograph often throughout his life. This is the last variant he used.

      The present example is clear and fine. Its connection to a key moment in British naval history provides enhanced appeal.

      The flight of Admiral Villeneuve was the last major naval action before the Battle of Trafalgar. After arriving back to the UK in August, Nelson was hailed the saviour of the British colonies in the Caribbean.

      On September 2, he was told the French and Spanish had combined fleets at Cadiz. So began the Battle of Trafalgar.

      The Swiftsure would play a decisive role at Trafalgar, taking on four French ships and dealing the final blow to the Achille. After the battle it attempted to tow the Redoubtable, the French ship from whence Nelson’s fatal shot came, but cut it free when it started to sink.

      Rutherford was a fascinating character and the only American-born commander at Trafalgar.

      Born in North Carolina to loyalist parents, who fled to the Caribbean at the outbreak of the American Revolution, he rose quickly through the ranks of the British Navy – taking his first command post in 1794.

      Nelson’s signature is in high demand, with letters relating to his naval career particularly sought after. This is a particularly important specimen, directly connected with the last manoeuvres before the Battle of Trafalgar.

      • A 4.75 x 3 inch album page signed by Albert Einstein in 1925, during a lecture tour of Argentina
      • The autograph appears alongside others by several Argentine intellectuals, including Mauricio Nirenstein and Jorge Duclout

      Albert Einstein was one of the world’s greatest scientific minds. In the early 1900s he developed the Theory of Relativity, which remains a key tenet of modern physics. A German citizen, he left the country shortly before Hitler seized power and never returned – choosing instead to spend the rest of his life in America. He was instrumental in developing the first atomic bombs in the 1940s, in spite of his lifelong commitment to pacifism. 

      Einstein travelled widely in the early 1920s, visiting countries in Asia, Europe, the Middle East and the Americas.

      In 1922, the University of Buenos Aires invited him to give a series of lectures on relativity. Einstein accepted and made the long journey out three years later, in 1925. He was warmly received in Argentina and gave a number of interviews with the press on a range of subjects - including politics, pacifism and Judaism.

      Einstein signed this album page during this month-long trip. His autograph appears in the centre, surrounded by signatures from various Argentine intellectuals.

      It’s a beautiful specimen, accompanied by PSA authentication and extensive information on his time in Buenos Aires.

      Einstein is among the most sought after signatures on the market. In 2017, a note he signed for a Japanese courier sold for a world record $1.5m.

      Albert Einstein signed letter addressed to Corliss Lamont

      For Sale: £8,250

       

      Albert Einstein (1879-1955) was a German born theoretical physicist and Nobel Prize winner.

      A hand typed letter from Albert Einstein, on embossed headed paper 112, Mercer Street, Princeton, New Jersey, U.S.A., measuring approximately 8½" x 11".

      The letter, dated January 2, 1954, reads in full: "Dear Mr Lamont I thank you for sending me your excellent statement which I had, of course, already seen. Through your attitude you have rendered the country an important service. There is one point in your statement which I regretted. It is your declaration that you have never been a member of the Communist party. For party membership is a thing about which no citizen has any obligation to give an accounting for. Sincerely Yours Albert Einstein"

      Einstein has signed the bottom of the letter in black ink 'A. Einstein'.

      Corliss Lamont has typed his reply (Dated January 25, 1954) on the reverse of Einstein's letter, in full:

      Dear Dr Einstein Thank you very much for your kind note on January 2nd. You have a real point about my voluntary statement to Senator McCarthy, that I was not a member of the Communist Party. I have worried about this a great deal and I am not at all sure that I should have included that. I am preparing for publication a pamphlet on this whole subject, entitled Challenge to McCarthy. The heart of it consists of a re-write of the enclosed article that was published in The Nation in its special issue on civil liberties in December. Since I discuss the case of Dr Sadowitz and the whole matter of the Congressional inquisitions, I would like very much to include as one appendix of your excellent letter to Mr Frauenglass of May 16, 1953. Since this was published in the New York Times, I presume that you have no objection to me using it. However, I want to check with you specifically before going ahead. Sincerely yours, Corliss Lamont Given

      Einstein's links to Germany and Zionism, his socialist ideals, and his links to Communist figures, the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation kept a file on Einstein that grew to 1,427 pages.

      Corliss Lamont (March 28, 1902 – April 26, 1995), was a socialist philosopher, and advocate of various left-wing and civil liberties causes. As a part of his political activities he was the Chairman of National Council of American-Soviet Friendship starting from early 1940s.

      Albert Einstein was one of the world’s greatest scientific minds. In the early 1900s he developed the Theory of Relativity, a work that set the template for modern physics. A German citizen, he left the country shortly before Hitler seized power and never returned – choosing instead to spend the rest of his life in America. 

      He was instrumental in developing the first atomic bombs in the 1940s, in spite of a lifelong commitment to pacifism. Over the course of his career he published hundreds of scientific papers. His name has become interchangeable with genius.  

      This is a 4.9 x 3.9 inch illustration of Albert Einstein by the Danish amateur artist Carl Werner Skogholm. Skogholm drew portraits of celebrities and sent them off with a request they be returned with a signature. Einstein was one of those who obliged. 

      Einstein has signed crisply in black pen, dating the piece "48". One of the nicest Einstein autographs you'll see. 

      This is a unique piece of considerable charm. Demand for Einstein’s signature has been growing, with one inscribed paper selling for a record $1.5m in 2017.

      • A signed copy of Russian author Alexandr Solzhenitsyn’s acclaimed 1962 novel One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich

      Alexandr Solzhenitsyn (1918-2008) was born in Stavropol Krai in south western Russia shortly after the October revolution.

      In 1945, he was sentenced to eight years in a gulag for complaining about the Soviet regime in a letter to a friend. The harshness of the labour camp served to compound his feelings about life under communism.

      Solzhenitsyn wrote in secret for many years, including his time in the gulag. Following the death of Stalin in 1952, the climate of repression in Russia began to ease. 

      In 1962, he published One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich in a literary magazine with the blessing of First Secretary Nikolai Khrushchev. However, that brief window of permissiveness closed soon after. This would be the first and last text Solzhenitysn was able to publish in the Soviet Union.

      The rest of Solzhenitsyn’s catalogue was published in the West. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1970 and expelled from the Soviet Union in 1974. In 1990 he was permitted to return to Russia, where he lived out the rest of his days.  

      One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich follows the titular character through 24 hours in a typical gulag. The text exposes the cruelty of the system and the ways in which it crushes the human spirit.

      This is a 1978 Penguin edition of the novel (measuring 4.6 x 7 inches).

      Solzhenitysn has signed in blue pen on the title page. It’s dated 1980.

      The book is accompanied by a note from Solzhenitsyn’s secretary (presumably in reply to a request) that reads: “I am very sorry, but Mr Solzhenitsyn does not grant any autographs (except on his books).”

      This is a rare opportunity to own a signature from one of the most compelling and controversial writers of the 20th century.

      Amy Winehouse was one of the brightest stars of her generation. Her debut album Frank, released in 2003 when she was just 20, introduced listeners to her unique voice. The follow-up, Back to Black (2006), established her as a global celebrity.

      Sadly Winehouse was unable to cope with the intense media scrutiny her success brought. She began drinking heavily and using drugs. The next five years were a chaotic downward spiral, interspersed with time in and out of rehab. She died of alcohol poisoning at her home in London in 2011, aged just 27.

      This is a large and charismatic Amy Winehouse autograph inscribed: “Love Amy”. It's presented on a 19.7 x 11.5 inch white card backing along with an 8 x 11 inch photograph (circa 2007).
