    Jimi Hendrix owned and worn scarf

    £6,500.00

    • A scarf owned and worn by Jimi Hendrix, one of the most iconic figures in music history

    Jimi Hendrix (1942-1970) is one of the most important musicians of the 20th century, regarded by many as the greatest guitarist of all time.

    Described by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as "arguably the greatest instrumentalist in the history of rock music", Hendrix's music continues to influence generations of musicians almost 50 years after it was recorded.

    He became one of the most famous figures of the 1960s counterculture movement, and his performance of The Star Spangled Banner at Woodstock remains one of the most defining moments in American pop culture history.

    In addition to his skills as a musician and songwriter, Hendrix also became known for his colourful style, which perfectly captured the flamboyant spirit and energy of the late 1960s.

    Today Jimi Hendrix memorabilia is amongst the most sought-after by music fans and collectors around the world, with his instruments, clothing and signed artifacts regularly selling for huge sums at auction.

    Herbert Worthington (1944 – 2013) was a rock and roll photographer renowned for his work with Fleetwood Mac and Stevie Nicks.

    Worthington famously took the cover photograph for the band's seminal 1977 album Rumours, along with creating the covers for Nicks' first two solo albums Bella Donna and The Wild Heart.

    Prior to his career as a photographer, Worthington was a much-loved character in the Los Angeles music scene, and shared an apartment with musician Buddy Miles.

    Miles was a close friend of Jimi Hendrix, and a member of his short-lived backing group Band of Gypsys, who performed with Hendrix at his legendary Woodstock appearance.

    Miles initially introduced Hendrix to his former house mate in 1969, and they quickly struck up a strong friendship, with Worthington often travelling with Jimi as he toured the U.S.

    They famously dropped acid together just before a show at the Denver Pop Festival in June 1969 – which turned out to be the last time the original Jimi Hendrix Experience line-up would ever perform together.

    The friends were also known to swap clothing and jewelry with each other, and Jimi gifted Worthington this scarf, which remained in his personal collection for more than 30 years until he passed away in November 2013.

    John Lennon Autograph on Customs Declaration

    £7,950.00

    •  A 1980 customs declaration signed by John Lennon in bold blue pen
    • A remarkable record of his last trip outside of the United States, daring to four months before his assassination
    • Includes Lennon's personal details and New York address

    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 collectible Beatle, with his memorabilia achieving outstanding prices.

      Description

      This signed United States Customs Declaration, measuring 4" x 8½", was completed by Lennon less than four months before he died. Returning from a two month vacation in Bermuda in 28 July 1980, this was Lennon's last journey outside of the United States.

      The singer's personal details are listed: full name, date of birth, countries of residence, address, flight details, date of citizenship, and note that he is travelling with his son, Sean. His signature, written in capital letters, is also prominent.

      A list of purchases from Bermuda is also handwritten on the official slip. T-shirts, pants, shirts and a hand bag are among the items bought while travelling. The most expensive item, a commissioned painting of the singer and his son, is valued at $6,000.

      The page is in fine condition, with some handling wear and ink cancellation strokes lightly touching Lennon's information. Some minor surface impressions from Lennon's declaration on the reverse. Identical forms filled in by Lennon's assistants who accompanied him on the trip, Fred Seaman and Uda Uneko, are included.

      These documents are accompanied by: two reprinted photos of Lennon in Bermuda; and one reprinted photo of the painting of John and Sean Lennon on the beach, hung over a piano.

      Background

      At 8pm on June 4, the former Beatle boarded a 43ft sloop called Megan Jaye at Newport, Rhode Island, and set sail for the idyllic Bermuda. He was joined later by his four year old "Beautiful Boy" Sean.

      While in Bermuda with son Sean, Lennon visited the botanical gardens and saw the freesia hybrid flower Double Fantasy, the name of which he would borrow for his next release. It was while in Bermuda that he wrote Woman and Cleanup Time, both of which were included on the Double Fantasy album.

      The declaration reveals more about this fascinating period in Lennon's life, which has since been recorded Scott Neil's book Lennon Bermuda and is seen as a very happy time for the singer.

      Through the details on the form we can reveal that Lennon's voyage was hastily planned, with the declaration recording his purchase of shorts and t-shirts while in Bermuda.

      Lennon also bought a handbag, presumably a gift for his wife Yoko Ono, who he is said to have missed immenseley while away. Woman, a song written in response from a telephone call he received in Bermuda, contains the line "So let me tell you again and again and again, I love you now and forever" - a sign of their happiness at this point.

      The declaration also reveals Lennon's love for his son Sean, with a $6,000 painting commissioned to immortalise their time together. A photograph of the painting accompanies the form.

      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.

      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 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.

      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.

      King Charles I locks of hair

      £15,000.00

      • Two locks of hair taken from the beard of King Charles I, presented on blue velvet in an attractive 20th century wooden box
      • Removed from Charles' body during its exhumation in 1813

      King Charles I (1600-1649) took to the English throne in 1625. An unpopular monarch with a tyrannical bent, he soon turned the powerful institutions of government against himself. His marriage to a Roman Catholic (Henrietta Maria) was another black mark in a Protestant kingdom.

      In 1642 the Parliaments of England and Scotland declared war on the king, under the leadership of Oliver Cromwell. The English Civil War raged for four years, ending in a Royalist defeat. Charles I surrendered at Newark-on-Trent in May 1646 and was beheaded the following year.

      Following his execution in London, Charles I’s head was sewn back on to his body. He was buried at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle.

      Over time, the location of the king’s tomb was forgotten. It was only rediscovered in 1813, during renovation works to the chapel. Sir Henry Halford, then physician to King George III, carried out an exhumation of the remains that year.

      It was during this process that Halford clipped these two locks from Charles' body.

      A copy of Halford’s report of the process (titled An Account of what Appeared on Opening the Coffin of King Charles the First) accompanies this item.

      Halford writes: “The pointed beard, so characteristic of the period of the reign of King Charles, was perfect”.

      The hair remains well preserved and is stored in a 5.7 x 3.2 inch 20th century wooden box, lined with blue velvet.

      A wonderfully macabre curio connected with one of England’s most historically important rulers.

      King Edward IV authentic strand of hair

      £399.00

      • An authentic strand of hair from Edward IV (1442-1483), England’s first Yorkist king

      Edward IV (1442-1483) was the first English king from the House of York, a powerful branch of the Plantagenet dynasty.

      His coronation took place in the midst of the bloody Wars of the Roses, an ongoing battle for the throne between the Plantagenet houses of York and Lancaster. Edward ruled from 1461 until his death in 1483, his term briefly interrupted by the restoration of Lancastrian king Henry VI in 1470-1471.

      This is a genuine half inch strand of hair from one of England’s most important medieval rulers.

      It comes presented on an 8 x 5.75 inch display card, perfect for framing.

      Edward is best remembered for decisively crushing the House of Lancaster in the Battle of Tewkesbury in 1471. His victory brought peace to a war torn kingdom (at least for the duration of his reign).

      This lock of hair was taken when his tomb in St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle was opened in 1789. This is a rare opportunity to own a keepsake connected with a key moment in English history.

      • · An authentic strand of hair from King Edward VII (1841-1910)
      Edward VII’s coronation took place in 1901, following the death of his mother Queen Victoria. He was 59 at the time and his reign was short, ending with his death in 1910. This brief period is known as the Edwardian era.
       
      This was a time when society underwent a dramatic change, with women and workers agitating for greater self-determination. It was also the end of the great European golden age known as the Belle Epoque. The First World War (1914-1918) would drag the continent screaming into the 20th century.
       
      This authentic half inch strand of hair is from the head of King Edward VII (it was likely taken when he was the Prince of Wales). A marvellous curio that fits beautifully into any collection of royal memorabilia.

      King Henry VII Autographed Historical Document

      £27,500.00

      • Clearly signed "HR" by King Henry VII - the first monarch of the House of Tudor
      • Dated 1499 and addressed to Sir Robert Lytton, Keeper of the Great Wardrobe
      • Very good condition for age - document is over 500 years old

      Henry VII became King of England and Lord of Ireland on August 22, 1485, after he defeated King Richard III at the famed Battle of Bosworth Field. He is the last English king to win his throne on the battlefield.

      Uniting the House of Plantagenet's rival houses, the House of Lancaster and the House of York, he founded the Tudor dynasty, which would rule over England until 1603.

      His reign is characterised by the restoration of stablitity to the English monarchy after the upheavals of the War of the Roses and before, the Hundred Years War.

      However, his final years were marked by financial scandal that left many in England indebted to the throne, a scandal which was only revealed after his death in 1509. 

      After a 23 year reign, the throne was passed to his son - the charismatic Henry VIII.

      A history of this document 

      This extremely rare signed document features Henry VII's clear and flourishing "H R" autograph. It is addressed to Sir Robert Lytton, Keeper of the Great Wardrobe. 

      The document orders Sir Lytton to deliver to Denys Bonde: "thre brode yerds and an half of tawney for a gowne, and asmoche blak bogee as wol suffice to furre the same. and thre yerds of blak sattyn for a doblet".

      The piece, which measures 7.7" x 3.5", is accompanied by a full translation of the letter which reads as follows:

      "We wol and charge you that vato our Welbeloued seruant denys Bonde ye deliuer or doe (cause - omitted) to bee deliuered thre brode yerds and an half of tawney for a gowne, and asmoche blak bogee as wol suffice to furre the same, and thre yerds of blak sattyn for a doblet and these our letteres shalbe your suffisuant Warraunt in this behalue. yeuen vader oure signet at our manor of Grenewiche the viith day of ffebruary The xiiiith yere of our Reigne.

      "To our trusty and welbeloued knight and counsaillour sir Robert Litton, keper of our great warderobe"

      The Great Wardrobe employed a range of craftsmen who lived and worked in the city.

      The holders of the key posts, such as the king’s tailor and the king’s skinner, were often leading members of their respective livery companies and they were at the centre of a network of other tailors, embroiderers, skinners and tapestry weavers who were employed on a more adhoc basis.

      Condition

      As is common of documents from this time, the page contains a small area of paper loss towards the bottom left corner and slight stain to the lower edge, however, this does not affect the text or the signature.

      Rarity

      Few documents have survived the 500+ years since Henry VII's reign and it is incredibly rare to find one in such good condition.

      A highly desirable piece, well preserved documents from England's early monarchs are scarce on the market, with most now housed in institutional collection.

      King Henry VIII Autographed Document

      £65,000.00

      • Bold, clear signature from Henry VIII - one of England's most iconic monarchs
      • Exceptional content relating to a loan to Sir Richard Gresham, the father of founder of the London Stock Exchange Sir Thomas Gresham
      • Provenance from Sir Thomas Phillipps, who was renowned for the largest collection of manuscripts in the 19th century
      • Vellum document in superb condition dated 1513 - the year Henry VIII invaded France

      Henry VIII was King of England from April 21, 1509 until his death on January 28, 1547.

      Henry's six wives - Catherine of Aragon, Anne Boleyn, Jane Seymour, Anne of Cleves, Katherine Howard and Katherine Parr - are the stuff of legend.

      Henry's struggles with Rome led to the separation of the Church of England from Papal authority, establishing him as the Supreme Head of the Church of England. The move changed the face of religion in England, and has had a lasting effect that is felt around the world today. 

      Henry VIII is also remembered as "one of the most charismatic rulers to sit on the throne of England", as well as a keen patron of the arts, himself being an author and composer.  

      Description & history

      Henry signs a large and bold "Henry R" - short for Henry "Rex Omnibus", the Latin for "king of all". 

      A large 11.3 x 8.5 inches - perfect for display.

      The document is addressed to John Heron, the Treasurer of the Chamber. In it King Henry VIII advises Heron of a loan to then cloth merchant Richard Gresham.

      "Richard Gresham of oure Citie of London with other stonde bounde by obligacion for the payment to oure use of the somme of Sixe hundred thirty seven poundes and ten shillynges at a certayn daie expired".

      Henry VIII informs Heron that the payment to Gresham should be delayed for two years upon existing sureties from Gresham, and that Heron should retain Gresham's bond.

      The sum of money involved is considerable: £637 10s, which equates to £3.9 million today, based on the average earnings index.

      At the time of the loan, the 29-year-old Richard Gresham was a major English cloth merchant trading in Antwerp. He later served as the Lord Mayor of London, a Member of Parliament and was a major financier to the crown - an extremely influential figure.

      The loan from Henry VIII enabled Gresham to found the House of Gresham, one of the most celebrated mercantile and financial houses of the 16th Century. His son, Sir Thomas Gresham, further increased the family fortune and founded the Royal Exchange in the City of London - London's first bourse and the forerunner to London's Stock Exchange.

      As this document describes the loan that helped Gresham found his empire, it is of the utmost importance. Gresham's influence on London is still felt to this day.

      Provenance

      The document once formed part of the collection of Sir Thomas Phillipps, a British Baronet who amassed the largest collection of manuscript material in the 19th Century. His chief collecting rival was the British Library - a testament to the value of his collection.

      Rarity

      Henry VIII is recognised globally due to his role in the historically important changes to religion and his somewhat unorthodox approach to marriage. It is thus not surprising that items related to him are highly sought after by collectors of both historical and royal memorabilia.

      Due to Henry VIII's historical significance, most documents related to his reign are kept in institutions such as the British Library, the National Archives and the British Museum, and are unlikely to reappear on the collectors' market.

      Only a limited number of privately owned documents have survived the 470+ years since Henry VIII's reign and documents of this quality are exceptionally rare.

      Paul Fraser’s view:

      "Henry VIII signatures come up for sale very rarely - most are in museums or libraries.

      "The historical importance of the document makes it particularly special.

      "If it wasn't for Henry's loan to Richard Gresham, he may never have made his fortune, and his son Thomas would never have had the opportunity to establish the Royal Exchange - the precursor to London's Stock Exchange.

      "And you can't get much better than provenance from Sir Thomas Phillipps, the manuscript collector of the 19th century."

      King Henry VIII

      Henry VIII was King of England from April 21, 1509 until his death on January 28, 1547.

      Henry's six wives - Catherine of Aragon, Anne Boleyn, Jane Seymour, Anne of Cleves, Katherine Howard and Katherine Parr - are the stuff of legend.

      Henry's struggles with Rome led to the separation of the Church of England from Papal authority, establishing him as the Supreme Head of the Church of England. The move changed the face of religion in England, and has had a lasting effect that is felt around the world today. 

      Henry VIII is also remembered as "one of the most charismatic rulers to sit on the throne of England", as well as a keen patron of the arts, himself being an author and composer. 

      Description

      King Henry VIII's bold, clear signature features prominently on this exceptionally large document, measuring 20" x 11.5".

      Henry's signature is followed by a large R signifying the words, Rex Omnibus, meaning "king of all" in Latin.

      Of the utmost quality, this piece is in pristine condition, a truly remarkable feat considering its age. There are few comparables on the open market.

      The document is a petition from John and Dorothy Wingfield to King Henry VIII, requesting the right to rent the priory of Woodbridge and Haspeley, the rectory of Woodbridge, and the possessions of the priory in Woodbridge, Martlesham, Great Bealings, Hasketon, Grymmesborough, Haspeley and Brandeston.

      Henry's signature indicates he gives his assent to the request.

      Four lines at the head of the document read:

      "To the king o[u]r Soveraigne Lorde, Please it your hieghnes[s] of your mooste noble and abundant grace to gruante your mooste gracious, L[ett]ers patente under your grete Seale of England in due and sufficient fourme to, be made according to the teno[u]r herafter ensuing."

      Following the addition of the King's signature, indicating that the Great Seal could now be attached, petitions such as this would have been passed on to the Chancery, where it would be formally copied and passed under the Great Seal.

      The final copied document would then be passed to the petitioner and would not usually feature the king's signature.

      The original, signed document - such as the example offered - would have been kept in the Crown Office.

      This patent was successful and can be seen on the Patent Rolls dated Westminster, 6th March 1542.

      In the upper left corner is a small notation reading, "Given me 8th June 1797 by Mr. Betts of Colchester" - presumably an addition from one of its early owners after it left the Crown Office.

      Rarity

      It is very rare for a document such as this one to leave the Crown Office.

      Unsurprisingly, few documents have survived the 470+ years since Henry's death.

      Those that have withstood the tests of time are mostly held in institutions such as the British Library, the National Archives and the British Museum, leaving very few in private hands.

      This is a rare opportunity to own an example of King Henry VIII's signature on such a large document in pristine condition.
