    Following an army rebellion against the emperor Maurice in 602, Focas was sent to Constantinople as spokesman. There he took advantage of revolts in the capital to get himself chosen emperor in place of Maurice, who, together with his son, was executed. Focas enjoyed good relations with Rome, his recognition of the primacy of the pope in matters of religion winning him praise from Pope Gregory l.

    Having made peace with the Avars (604) by agreeing to pay them an increased annual tribute, he had to face the avenging forces of Maurice's ally, Khosrow II, under whom the Persians moved into Asia Minor, reaching the Bosporus by 608. Focas' persecution of a Christian sect, the Monophysites, and of the Jews brought him the hatred of the Eastern provinces, and in the capital he grew increasingly tyrannical; riots erupted in some cities.

    Fear of the Persians, together with general discontent, led to a revolt by the exarch of Carthage, who in 610 sent an expedition under his son Heraclius; the latter had Focas executed and was himself proclaimed emperor in October 610.

    A column honouring Focas still stands in the Roman Forum, the last in a long series of such monuments to the Roman emperors.

    Charles Dickens Authentic Strand of Hair

    £399.00

    • A guaranteed genuine half inch strand of Charles Dickens' hair 

    Charles John Huffman Dickens (1812-1870) is regarded as the greatest English writer of his age. His broad body of work includes some of the most celebrated novels ever written - including Oliver Twist, Great Expectations and A Christmas Carol.

    Dickens was born into a middle class family in Portsmouth, but his circumstances changed dramatically when his father was slung into a debtors’ prison in 1824. Dickens was forced to leave school and start work in a boot polish factory to support his family.

    While his father was freed a few months later, allowing Dickens to return to school, this formative experience left him burning with a righteous anger at the conditions the working classes had to endure.

    This half inch strand of Charles Dickens' hair is presented on a display card.

    Superb provenance; the hair originates from the famed collection of Margaretta Pierrepont, wife of President Ulysses S Grant’s Attorney General.

    Charles Dickens signed document

    £15,000.00

    • A large and exceptional land lease signed by Charles Dickens 

    Charles John Huffman Dickens (1812-1870) is regarded as the greatest English writer of his age. His broad body of work includes some of the most celebrated novels ever written - including Oliver Twist, Great Expectations and A Christmas Carol.

    Dickens was born into a middle class family in Portsmouth, but his circumstances changed dramatically when his father was slung into a debtors’ prison in 1824. Dickens was forced to leave school and start work in a boot polish factory to support his family.

    While his father was freed a few months later, allowing Dickens to return to school, this formative experience left him burning with a righteous anger at the conditions the working classes had to endure.

    Charles John Huffman Dickens (1812-1870) created some of the world's most memorable fictional characters and is generally regarded as the greatest novelist of the Victorian Period. His works include A Christmas Carol and A Tale of Two Cities, the best selling novel of all time.

    This exceptionally large document, measuring 26½ x 22 inches, is dated 21st March 1863. Boasting impeccable penmanship the document is an Indenture made between Charles Dickens ('Of Higham, in the County of Kent') and John Brooker, a local farmer for the lease of land.

    It relates to 'a piece or parcel of land or garden ground containing by estimation eight acres and sixteen perches or thereabouts as now stumped off formerly woodland part of a piece of land formerly called or known by the name of "Seeming Ruff" but now called "Scrubby Bushes" situate lying and being at or near a certain place called Gads Hill in the Parish of Higham in the County of Kent..."

    The document has been signed by Dickens in bold blue fountain pen at the base, either side of a red wax seal affixed to a small green ribbon.

    Dickens association with Gads Hill is well documented. In 1856 he purchased Gads Hill Place for £1,790. He had first encountered the house in 1821 when he was nine years old and would often walk from Chatham to Gads Hill Place.

    He later wrote "I used to look at it as a wonderful mansion (Which God knows it is not) when I was a very odd little child with the first faint shadows of all my books in my head - I suppose."

    35 years later he purchased the house, initially as an investment, and later as his personal country retreat before moving in permanently in June 1857.

    It was at Gads Hill Place that Dickens wrote A Tale of Two Cities, Great Expectations and his unfinished work The Mystery of Edwin Drood.

    One of the main characters in Edwin Drood is Stony Durdles the stonemason, who Dickens based on local farmer John Brooker, referenced in this Indenture. In 1897 Elliot Stock, in his book on Dickens' life, wrote "[In] the late veteran Mr John Brooker, of Higham (whose father planted the famous cedars at gads Hill Place), were recognised some of the better qualities and peculiarities of Stony Durdles"

    We've been racking our brains but can't think of another document that mentions both Charles Dickens and the real life inspiration of one of his characters.

    A truly interesting and unique item. Huge size makes for a very impressive display piece.

    Charles I Authentic Strand of Beard Hair

    £399.00

    • An authentic strand of beard hair from Charles I (1600-1649)
    • Removed from Charles' body following 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.

    Charles I occupies a key position in English history as the first (and last) monarch to be tried of treason and beheaded.

    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 two locks from the body of Charles I. This strand comes from those two locks. 

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

    This authentic half inch strand of beard hair is a wonderfully unusual item, perfect for any curio collection.

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

    Charles II signed document

    £1,950.00

    In 1649, Charles I met his end at the Tower of London. Oliver Cromwell was now the ruler of England. Within days, the Scots crowned Charles’ son Charles II. In 1651, Charles II attempted to wrest control of England at the Battle of Worcester but was roundly trounced. He fled to France, where he remained in exile until 1660 – two years after the death of Cromwell. Charles II was a hugely popular king, known to his subjects as the Merry Monarch. His reign was a welcome relief from Cromwell’s Puritanism.
     
    This is a spectacular 9 x 14 inch vellum document bearing a major signature from Charles II (1630-1685) at the top of the page. Charles signs “Charles R” (the R is for Rex – Latin for king). It’s dated November 13, 1668. 
     
    The text addresses the Commissioners of the Treasury (including George Monck and the Duke of Albermarle). It requests a salary payment of £100 to Peter Du Moulin, Secretary of the Council for Trade and a chaplain at Canterbury Cathedral.
    The piece is mounted on white paper and displays a light tear that goes through signature, along with some toning,

    • A document featuring the autograph of Che Guevara - one of the most significant political figures of the 20th century

    • Discover more about this piece here 

    Ernesto 'Che' Guevara (1928-1967) was a writer, guerrilla leader and Marxist revolutionary, who played a major role in the Cuban Revolution.

    In 1959 Guevara and Fidel Castro led a group of insurgents to overthrow the government of Cuban dictator Fulgencio Batista, and established Cuba as a Communist state. 

    This 'Honourable Mention' certificate was presented to worker Hiram Peres de Alejo in March 1962 for his "endeavour in the increase of production".

    Under the new Communist regime, Guevara had abolished all pay raises, and so Cuban workers were encouraged with moral, rather than material incentives.

    These included a system of diplomas, medals, certificates, honourable mentions in factory bulletins, and public ceremonies.

    The certificate bears Guevara's iconic, instantly recognisable autograph, which reads simply "Che", along with an embossed official government seal.

    The document measures 27.8 x 35.3cm, with several separations repaired on the reverse, and slight creasing and toning. These do not affect Guevara's signature.
