  • 1840 Penny Black (GB) Plate 3 SUPERB four margin Tiny Envelope Contrary to Regulations
    Quick shop

    1840 Penny Black (GB) Plate 3 SUPERB four margin Tiny Envelope Contrary to Regulations. Tiny Envelope posted on Monday the 31st of August 1840 in Liverpool to Regents Park London. Penny Black Plate 3 placed on the bottom left of the entire Post Office regulations says the stamp must be on the top right corner. This envelope written by Edwin Atherstones to his daughter Mary Elizabeth who went on to publish and edit a distinguished book named "The Dramatic works of Edwin Atherstone". Edwin Atherstone was a poet but also supported his family by dealing in Art. He was born in Nottingham in 1788 and was one of 15 children. He is described by his daughter Mary as a man of most honourable noble mind and heart. Atherstone was friend to the great John Martin who has been referred to as the most popular painter of his day. Martin supplied art for Atherstones work such as the fall of the Nineveh of which is now part of the British Museum's collection and the famous poem "A Midsummers Day Dream". Atherstone was in the same literary circle as the likes of Charles Dickens, John Hunt and William Godwin (the father of Mary Shelley). Thus, subsequently their work was part of the Romantic Movement which marked an era of change for England. A stunning piece of philatelic history.

    • Signed handsomely on a June 1966 Anglo-American Sporting Club dinner evening menu
    • Autographs obtained just 40 days before England won the World Cup

    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.

    Also features the autograph of England's manager, Alf Ramsey. 

    A rare set of football autographs and impossible to recreate today, as several members of the 22 have passed away.

    A large collection of vintage polo trophies and photo archive

    £29,500.00

    • A superb collection of vintage polo trophies and photographic archive relating to star player Eric Tyrrell-Martin

    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.

    The superb collection of silver and silver-plated vintage polo trophies is complemented by two photo albums relating to the life and career of Tyrrell-Martin, as well as two address books belonging to his wife, Edith.

    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 Lord Horatio Nelson Authentic Lock of Hair

    For Sale: £15,000.00

    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.

    Albert Einstein autographed album page

    £2,995.00

    • 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.

  • Alexandr Solzhenitsyn signed copy of One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich
    Quick shop
    • 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.

    Audrey Hepburn began her acting career as a chorus girl in the London’s West End during the late 1940s. Her breakout came in 1951, when she was cast as the lead in Gigi – a hugely successful play on Broadway.

    A career in film followed, including Roman Holiday (1953) and Sabrina (1954). However, it’s Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961) for which she is best known. Her appearance in the movie has become an icon of cinema.

    Given her reclusive nature, it’s no surprise there are very few Audrey Hepburn autographs around.

    Signed headshots are in high demand and those showing her in her iconic role as Holly Golightly are particularly sought after.

    This is a fine display piece, in excellent condition. The autograph to the bottom right is large and attractive, signed in black felt tip pen. It’s accompanied by a letter of authentication from industry expert James Spence.

    Bebe Daniels and Ben Lyon autographed photo

    £150.00

    • A rare and beautiful Bebe Daniels and Ben Lyon autographed photo

    Ben Lyon (1901-1979) began his career as an actor on Broadway. He starred in a number of Hollywood movies, notably 1930's Hell's Angels. Following the decline of his acting career he became a studio executive with 20th Century Fox.

    It was while working at 20th Century Fox that Lyon discovered a young actress, Norma Jeane Dougherty, renamed her Marilyn Monroe, organised her first colour screen test, and signed her to her first studio contract. Of Monroe, he is quoted as saying that she was "Jean Harlow all over again".

    Lyon married Bebe Daniels (1901-1971) in 1930, at the height of his success. Daniels was a star in her own right, carving out a career as a child actress in Hollywood's silent movies. She made over 230 films and, from the 1950s, worked on radio and television to much acclaim in England.

    This striking photograph shows the successful couple bathed in soft light. The Hollywood sheen of glamour is evident with the flawless skin and engaging eyes. Lyon's hair is greased back neatly, his eyebrows slightly furrowed with intensity. Daniel's hair is softly curled, her eyes and lips glossed heavily in make-up.

    Sepia-toned and attractively mounted, the photograph measures 6.5 x 4.5 inches, without mount. Daniels' and Lyon's autographs feature in the bottom portion of the photograph. Daniels has written: "Our best wishes, Bebe Daniels", with Lyon adding "Ben Lyon".

    The photograph is in excellent condition, with the autographs standing out superbly against the photograph's white border.

    Their autographs are rare separately, together they're extremely scarce.

    • A rare Bert Lahr autographed photo depicting him as the Cowardly Lion in The Wizard of Oz

    Bert Lahr (1895-1967) was an American stage and screen performer, best-known for his role as the Cowardly Lion in the timeless classic The Wizard of Oz.

    Lahr began his career as a vaudeville performer on the Columbia Burlesque Circuit, and worked his way up to starring roles on Broadway, before heading to Hollywood in the 1930s.

    He featured in several films before landing the part of the Cowardly Lion in the 1939 MGM musical, starring alongside Judy Garland, Ray Bolger and Jack Haley.

    During filming, Lahr was known to ad-lib lines, causing numerous re-takes as his co-stars burst out laughing. When later asked by reporters if he was worried about being typecast, he replied, "Yeah, but how many parts are there for lions?"

    Lahr returned to the stage later in his career, co-starring in the 1956 US premiere of Samuel Beckett's Waiting for Godot, and winning the 1964 Tony Award for Best Leading Actor in a Musical for his role in Foxy.

    This vintage 10 x 8 photograph features Lahr in his full Cowardly Lion costume, and is strikingly signed "To Vickie, with love, Uncle Bert" at the top of the image in blue ink. The recipient was Lahr's niece Vickie Arthur.

    Lahr was an infrequent signer of autographs during his life, and signed photographs of him in his most iconic role as the Cowardly Lion are highly rare.
