    William Wordsworth Autographed Poetry Quotation

    £3,995.00

    • A handwritten poetry inscription signed by one of history's most celebrated poets
    • Read our full newsletter about this item here 

    William Wordsworth (1770-1850) is one of history's most famous poets, and was a founder of the Romantic Age in English literature.

    In 1798 Wordsworth and his close friend, poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge, published their volume 'Lyrical Ballads', which inspired a generation of Romantic writers including John Keats, Lord Byron, Percy Bysshe Shelley and William Blake.

    Wordsworth served as Britain's Poet Laureate from 1843 until his death in 1850, and is most renowned for 'Daffodils', one of the world's best loved poems, which begins with the line "I wandered lonely as a cloud..."

    In this handwritten note, Wordsworth has inscribed four lines from the poem 'Old Age' by the 17th century poet and politician Edmund Waller:
    "The soul's dark cottage, batter'd and decay'd,
    Lets in new light through chinks that Time hath made:
    Stronger by weakness, wiser men become
    As they draw near to their eternal home."

    The note is signed "Wm Wordsworth", and is dated "6 July, 1839".

    It also bears the address of Wordsworth's Lake District home Rydal Mount, where he lived from 1813 until his death in 1850, and which today remains a public museum dedicated to his life and work.

    The page measures 17 x 20.3 cm (approx. 6.7" x 7.9"), and features a small tear to the upper left portion, along with two horizontal fold creases.

  • Winston Churchill Signed Document
    • A document signed by one of the most significant world leaders in 20th century history

    Winston Churchill (1874 –1965) was a politician and statesman who twice served as British Prime Minister, and is regarded as one of the most influential people in British history.

    Churchill led Britain to victory against Nazi Germany during WWII, with his regular speeches and broadcasts inspiring resistance against Adolf Hitler during the darkest days of the conflict.

    In 1963 he became the first person to be declared an honorary citizen of the United States, and following his death in 1965 he was granted a state funeral by Queen Elizabeth II to mark his service to the nation.

    In addition to his political career, Churchill was a renowned writer and was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1953.

    He was also an accomplished painter, and his paintings remain highly sought-after by collectors today.

    This document relates to the naturalization of a Russian immigrant and his family prior to WWI.

    Certificates of Naturalization could be issued to any 'alien' who had lived in Britain for more than five years.

    These applications were then signed off personally by the Secretary of State for the Home Office, a role to which Churchill was promoted in 1910.

    At just 35 years old, he was the second-youngest politician in British history to ever hold the position.

    The two-page document is dated September 16, 1911, and bears Churchill's signature on the second page.

    The document includes pencil annotations in the top right corners of both sheets, and has minor soiling.

    Also included is a collection of 15 original wartime press photographs featuring Winston Churchill on several occasions.

    The black and white photographs come in different sizes, and feature their original press captions pasted onto the rear.

    A superb collection of items relating to the 20th century's 'Greatest Briton'.

  • Yousuf Karsh Autograph on a Copy of 'Karsh a Fifty-Year Retrospective'
    • A signed copy of Yousuf Karsh's book Karsh a Fifty-Year Retrospective 

    Yousuf Karsh (1908-2002) was a Canadian photographer of Armenian heritage, regarded as the one the greatest portrait photographers of all time.

    Karsh a Fifty-Year Retrospective is a stunning photographic book featuring 188 of Karsh's finest portraits.

    Included are Ernest Hemingway, Albert Einstein, Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, Brigitte Bardot, Pablo Picasso, Walter Kronkite, JFK and Winston Churchill.

    Karsh's image of Churchill brought him international prominence, and is claimed to be the most reproduced photographic portrait in history.

    He explained: "Churchill's cigar was ever present. I held out an ashtray but he would not dispose of it...

    "I said "Forgive me, Sir" and plucked the cigar from his mouth. He looked so belligerant he could have devoured me, It was at that instant that I took the photo"

    This book offers a second, little known, photo of Churchill. One where Karsh describes him as 'smiling and benign'. It's a favourite of the Churchill family.

    Of the 100 most notable people of the century, named by the International Who's Who [2000], Karsh had photographed 51.

    Karsh has inscribed the book: "Inscribed for Steve Keyser, with the good wishes of Yousuf Karsh 1985"

    It's in perfect condition, accompanied by a pristine dust-jacket.
