    Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Handwritten List

    £995.00

    •  A list handwritten by Sherlock Holmes author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle 

    Most famous for his 'Sherlock Holmes' detective stories, Scottish-born Arthur Conan Doyle (1859-1930) was an innovator of the crime fiction genre. His writing skills included works of science fiction, plays, poetry, historical novels, romances and non-fiction.

    A string of recent Hollywood movies and a hugely popular BBC TV series have led to a revival of interest in Sherlock Holmes over the past few years, 

    Sir Arthur Conan Doyle has written the names of 14 notable people (and their professions) in bold black ink on an envelope. 

    Among them are: writer Douglas Goldring; politician Ellen Wilkinson; journalist Holbrook Jackson; actor Leon M. Lion; painter C. R. W. Nevinson; and the actress Elsa Lanchester.

    The envelope is accompanied by four other items (two typed letters, a handwritten letter and a menu) relating to Doyle's son Adrian Conan Doyle (1910-1970) and daughter Jean Conan Doyle (1912-1997).

    Stan Laurel Autographed Letter

    £2,250.00

    • Letter signed by Stan Laurel - one half of comedy duo Laurel & Hardy
    • Written to news anchorman Glenn Laxton concerning Laurel's early career

    Stan Laurel (1890-1965) is one half of legendary comedy duo Laurel & Hardy, who were extremely popular from the 1920s to the 1940s, and featured in over 100 films. Silly, slender Laurel and rotund, pompous Hardy captured the hearts of millions through their original, slapstick comedy.

    This is a typed letter from Stan Laurel to cable television news anchorman, Glen Laxton, dated June 9, 1958. The letter, which features some hinges and archive folding, measures 11.8” x 8.4” and is accompanied by its original envelope which measures 6.75” x 3.75”

    Laxton first contacted Laurel at the age of 15 offering his support following Oliver Hardy’s death. Laurel answered almost immediately and Laxton claims that since then, he received over 50 letters from the comedian. Click here to read an interview with Glen Laxton regarding his correspondence with Laurel.

    This typed letter, written just 8 months after the death of Oliver Hardy reads:

    Dear Glenn:-

    Thanks yours 4th.inst.

    My start in Show Bus. was due to the fact, that I was born of a Theatrical Family, so I just grew up in the profession & followed my Father's footsteps. No, I never appeared in a Circus, altho my Father owned at one time in England, and also operated 6 legitimate theatres, beside authoring & producing several Dramatic shows in which he appeared with my Mother - my Brothers & Sister too were in the business. I came to this Country in 1910 in a Vaudeville show with Charlie Chaplin, it was a troupe called Fred Karno's London Comedians, we had a repertoire of sketches, the most well known was titled "A Night in An English Music Hall".

    Yes, Babe had a nice Tenor voice, he used to be a Boy Tenor in Minstrel Shows - Quartettes Etc. that deep voice you mention in "Way Out West" was not mine, a colored fellow sang while I just 'mouthed' the lyrics for comedy effect. I do'nt think seperate recordings were ever recorded of that particular number.

    The TV reception is much better at the new place, we can get all 7 channels. Well, think this covers your questions, so bye for now.

    Regards & best wishes Glenn.

    Sincerely:- Stan Laurel

    Laurel has autographed the letter “Stan” above his typed name.

    A beautiful personal letter from Stan Laurel with impeccable provenance.

    • Find out more about this piece here 

    Stephen Hawking was a young graduate studying physics at Cambridge University when he received a diagnosis of ALS, an incurable form of motor neurone disease. Doctors gave him two years to live.

    In the face of this progressive illness, he continued his work, producing several brilliant papers on black holes. In 1988 he published A Brief History of Time, one of the most successful popular science books ever printed. Hawking became a major celebrity – easily the most famous scientist of his generation. He died in 2018, aged 76. 

    By the 1970s, Stephen Hawking lost the ability to write by hand. As his fame grew following the publication of A Brief History of Time (1988), he began to receive requests for autographs.

    He started signing with a thumbprint dipped in ink and placed on the page.  

    This is a thumbprint signed copy of the Radio Times from January 2016, featuring a feature on Hawking’s upcoming Reith Lecture.

    The condition is good, with some creasing and scuffing to the cover and internal pages and a light crease to the autographed page. 

    The inscription alongside reads: “To Sandra, wherein much fun is to be had. This is right thumb print of professor Stephen Hawking witness by George Zhoeo and Steve Growett.” Dated 20/01/2016.

    The original owner received the signature via her brother-in-law, who was one of Hawking’s nursing staff. Included are several photographs of Hawking signing.

    • You can find out more about this item here 

    Steve McQueen (1930-1980) is among the most iconic actors of his generation. He brought a detached cool presence in a swathe of wildly popular roles, including Bullitt, The Great Escape and The Thomas Crowne Affair.

    McQueen dates this cheque December 12, 1958. He got his breakout role in September that year, starring as Josh Randall in TV western Wanted: Dead or Alive (1958-1961).

    The payee is Broadway Hollywood, a Los Angeles department store, while the sum is $12.42. That’s just over $100 in today’s money. Perhaps McQueen was treating himself to celebrate his recent success. It's housed in a large and visually impressive 22 x 33 inch frame, complete with barbed wire and a mounted photograph of McQueen. 

    McQueen’s autograph is unusually rare for an actor of his stature, as he hated signing for fans. The few signatures in circulation are typically found on cheques. 

    N.B The cheque can easily be removed from its frame should you wish to present it in an alternate fashion.

    The Beatles and their music need no introduction. As a result of their all-encompassing impact on popular music and culture, memorabilia from the band is some of the most valuable on the market.

    A Hard Day's Night, released on July 10, 1964, was the Beatles' third studio album. Accompanying the band's film of the same name, it went straight to Number One in the UK charts and stayed there for 21 weeks, spending a total of 38 weeks in the Top 20.

    A Hard Day's Night saw the Beatles move away from rock n roll covers and towards their classic sound. It holds a special place with fans, as it is the only Beatles album where all the songs were written by both John Lennon and Paul McCartney. 

    According to Autograph Magazine's census, there are just 125 known UK-release album covers signed by all four members of the Beatles.

    Signed copies of Please Please Me and With The Beatles account for approximately 95 of the 125 known examples. 

    That takes the total down to just 30.

    There are only 5 known examples of Meet the Beatles, with one example selling for $115,000 in 2006.

    As for signed copies of A Hard Day's Night, only 8-10 are known to exist.

    This is one of them...

    The signatures are in blue pen, each inscribed below the corresponding band member's photograph.

    The item is in fine condition, with some light wear to the edges.

    The album cover is to be sold framed alongside a black and white photo of the group, with a certificate of authenticity and lifetime moneyback guarantee of authenticity.

    The Princess Diana Wedding Dress Fabric Collection

    £735.00

    • A limited edition collection of Princess Diana’s wedding dress fabric. 

    The seven fabric samples come from the same pieces of material that designers David and Elizabeth Emanuel used to make Diana’s wedding dress for her 1981 marriage to Prince Charles.

    These pieces were in the same room, on the same table, and part of the same fabric as arguably the most famous wedding dress of all time. They are seven witnesses to history.

    Presented on an elegant, handcrafted 11.7 by 8.3 inch display, using deluxe 350gsm card. Perfect for a prominent place in your home.

    Limited to an individually numbered edition of just 50.

    Superb provenance from the personal collection of designers David and Elizabeth Emanuel.

    The closest you will come to owning Diana’s wedding dress, which is now owned by Princes William and Harry.

    Details of the seven pieces of fabric:

    Diana’s wedding dress silk taffeta: 1 inch by 1 inch

    Ivory-coloured silk taffeta used to make the exterior of Diana's wedding dress. Created in a heavier weight than was customary to help give the dress its distinctive shape. Britain’s oldest silk weaving company, Stephen Walters, wove the taffeta. The company had crafted the lining of Queen Elizabeth II's coronation gown and Princess Anne’s wedding dress.

    The Emanuels ordered the silk for Diana's dress in white and ivory to keep its colour a secret, even from their employees. Diana had always wanted the ivory colour.

    Silk for the lining of Diana’s wedding dress: 1 inch by 1 inch

    Ivory-coloured silk used to make the inner lining of Diana's wedding dress. Slightly coarser than the identically coloured silk taffeta used for the exterior of the dress. 

    Silk taffeta for Diana’s train: 1 inch by 1 inch

    Ivory-coloured silk taffeta used for the majority of Diana’s train. Diana’s train was 25 feet long – she kept asking for it to be extended. Despite her best efforts it was somewhat crinkled when she emerged from the glass coach at St Paul’s Cathedral.

    Fine lace for the train’s border: 1 inch by 1 inch

    Elegant fine lace used for the train's border.

    Spangled lace for Diana’s bodice: 1 inch by 2 inches

    Beautifully intricate spangled lace used to trim Diana’s bodice.

    Lace for Diana’s wedding shoes: 1 inch by 1 inch

    Ivory-coloured lace used for Princess Diana's wedding shoes. The fine lace features a three-petal floral pattern. This lace was used to border the heart design on Diana's shoes. Diana’s shoes had a low heel, to ensure she didn’t look taller than Charles.

    Taffeta for the bridesmaids’ dress bands: 1 inch by 1 inch

    Yellow-gold silk taffeta, inspired by the colour of the Mountbatten rose, used for the bridesmaids' dress bands. There were five bridesmaids, including the great-granddaughter of Winston Churchill, Clementine Hambro: 'the sobbing bridesmaid’.

    About the dress:

    Princess Diana’s wedding dress was one of the most closely guarded secrets in fashion history. Reporters only found out the particulars of the dress when they ripped open sealed envelopes as Diana stepped into her carriage at Clarence House to begin her journey to the ceremony.

    • It took David and Elizabeth Emanuel three months to make, and featured hand embroidery, sequins and 10,000 pearls.
    • Its design set the trend for 1980s wedding dresses.
    • In 2018 Time magazine declared it the "Most Influential British Royal Wedding Dress of All Time".

    Designers the Emanuels stated they wanted the dress "to go down in history”, but also be “something that Diana loved". They thoroughly succeeded. This is your chance to own seven pieces of that story.

  • The Trafalgar Collection of historical Lord Nelson & HMS Victory artefacts
    • A spectacular collection of memorabilia associated with Admiral Nelson and the Battle of Trafalgar (1805)

    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.

    The Trafalgar Collection is a unique limited edition collection of Lord Nelson and HMS Victory historical artefacts that has taken over 25 years to assemble. Only 1805 were ever made.

    This remarkable collection of memorabilia contains:

    1. A small piece of original wood from HMS Victory. This wood was salvaged during the ship's restoration, with a royalty paid to the 1922 'Save the Victory Fund'. The wood's provenance is authenticated by Lt. Cmdr. John Scivier RN, Commanding Officer, HMS Victory.
    1. A small piece of white ensign flag from HMS Victory. Understood to have formed part of the catafalque (the platform used to carry the coffin) at Lord Nelson's funeral procession. C.Wesley Cowan, an expert on the US Antiques Roadshow, states "it is in my opinion that this flag is 100% authentic and beyond dispute".
    1. A strand of Lord Nelson's hair. This hair was acquired from British Naval Auction experts Charles Miller Ltd Auctions in London, United Kingdom with the following description: "A generous curl of typically fine pale hair... conforms very closely to other known hair examples of Lord Nelson's late-period hair. It is well recorded that Emma Hamilton was given Nelson's hair among other things".
    1. A piece of Lord Nelson's handkerchief. Acquired from International Autograph Auctions with the following provenance: "This handkerchief formerly belonged to Lord Nelson and was given by John Braham to John Dickinson, Solicitor of Broad Street, City in the year 1828". John Braham (c1774-1856) was an English tenor, one of Europe's leading opera singers. Lord Nelson was present at a performance by the singer at Livorno, Italy in 1799.

    The collection is beautifully framed and double mounted to a size of 19 x 16 inches and includes images of Lord Nelson and HMS Victory. At the base of the frame is a description of the collection and full provenance is provided within an information pack that accompanies the collection.
