  • Charles De Gaulle signed WW2 menu

    • A menu from a 1942 dinner at the Chambre de Commerce Francaise in London signed by Charles de Gaulle
    • At the time of signing de Gaulle was leader in exile of the Free French resistance
    • An extraordinary piece of WW2 memorabilia from a towering figure in French history

    Charles De Gaulle (1890-1970) was a fascinating and controversial figure. He graduated from France’s prestigious Saint Cyr military academy in 1912 and became a decorated hero during the first world war. When WW2 broke out, he was appointed Undersecretary of War. He fled to England after the French government surrendered to the Nazis in 1940, becoming leader of the French resistance. After the war he was appointed chair of the transitional government. He was prime minister from 1948-49 and elected president of France from 1958-1969, establishing the Fifth Republic and carefully piloting the nation through the cold war. As a result, De Gaulle is seen by many as the founding father of modern France.

    In 1940, Charles de Gaulle broadcast his celebrated Appeal du 18 Juin across the English channel to the people of France. The general had been forced to leave the country after the invasion of Germany made him a target for arrest and possible execution.

    In his speech, De Gaulle exhorted French soldiers to continue the fight against the invaders. This put him in opposition with the ruling Vichy government, which signed an armistice with Germany and began working in collaboration. This included adopting the Nazis' cruel persecution of Jews and other minorities.

    This meal took place at the Chambre de Commerce Francaise at Grosvenor House, London on January 6, 1942. De Gaulle signs the 4.1 x 6.7 inch menu in bold black pen to the top left.  

    At this date he has been living in London for two years, masterminding the French Resistance’s guerrilla war against the occupying German army. He was backed in his efforts by Winston Churchill, who agreed to loan him the funds for the fight, to be paid back by France after the war.

    When you buy this item you also get a July 1, 1941 Chambre de Commerce Francaise menu signed by Alfred Boucher (president of the Free French Chamber of Commerce), Greek diplomat Charalambos Simopolous and Yugoslavian attaché MN Domovic.

    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. Dickens originally gave the hair to his sister-in-law Georgina Hogarth.

    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.

    Dickens purchased Gads Hill, his country home in Higham, Kent, in 1856 and spent a considerable sum refurbishing it over the next few years.

    This cheque for £30.12s.6d is made out to carpet and curtain makers James Shoolbred & Co.

    Dickens writes out the date, the recipient and the sum in blue ink. His signature, with its characteristic multiple underlines, is to the bottom left. 

    The piece is displayed in an attractive 14.1 x 8.2 inch gold frame along with an antique photograph of Dickens, depicting him in 1861. The reverse is fixed with a card displaying information from Louise Ross & Co. Auctioneers.

    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,

    Charles Lindbergh Autographed Menu

    For Sale: £1,500.00

    Charles Lindbergh (1902-1974) came to fame with his Orteig prize-winning solo non-stop flight from New York to Paris in 1927. The U.S. army reserve officer travelled a distance of nearly 3,600 statute miles in the Spirit of St. Louis, a single-seat, single-engine monoplane. Awarded a Medal of Honour for his exploit, he was rocketed to international fame, which culminated in the kidnap and murder of his son, which was dubbed the "Crime of the Century".

    In addition to being an aviator, Lindbergh was an accomplished author, explorer, inventor and social activist. His impressive and pioneering feats in aviation have led him to become one of the most valuable and sought after pilots for collectors.

    This menu card from Club Cartagena details the menu options for a banquet held in honour of Lindbergh. He has signed the top left space of the card in blue ink. Other signatures and handwritten text feature on the reverse. Some smudging to the ink, light toning and folding.

    A unique piece of memorabilia.

    • A signed photograph of Charles Lindbergh, taken on his triumphant return voyage from Paris to New York in 1927

    Charles Augustus Lindbergh (1902-1974), nicknamed Slim, Lucky Lindy and The Lone Eagle, was a pioneering aviator who began his illustrious career in the skies as an US Air Mail pilot. 

    At the age of just 25, he emerged from obscurity to capture the $25,000 Orteig Prize for his solo non-stop flight from New York to Paris on May 20-21, 1927. 

    The event rocketed him to international fame, and there was "tremendous public hysteria" in America. He was awarded the nation's highest military decoration, the Medal of Honor, for his legendary flight.

    His fame meant that he was able to champion the development of commercial aviation and Air Mail services in the United States, making him one of the leading figures responsible for the progression of aviation technology at the time.

    Following his son, Charles Jr, being kidnapped and murdered in the "Crime of the Century" in 1932 - a result of Lindbergh's fame - his family moved overseas. They returned as America joined the second world war, with Lindbergh flying numerous combat missions in the Pacific Theatre. 

    Following the second world war, Lindbergh styled himself as an explorer, inventor and prize-winning author, as well as an environmentalist - a truly remarkable man.

    An absolutely superb signed photograph (By Underwood & Underwood of Washington DC) measuring 18cmx23cm, mounted to a total size of 28cmx38cm.

    The sepia styled photo shows Lindbergh posing in front of the fuselage of the Spirit of St Louis. Lindbergh has signed underneath:

    "To Mr Fred Buckholy, Charles A. Lindbergh" adding the date "June 12, 1927".

    The photograph was therefore signed the day after Lindbergh's triumphant return home to the US aboard the USS Memphis when a fleet of warships, pursuit planes, bombers and the airship USS Los Angeles followed him up the Potomac River to the Washington Navy Yard where President Calvin Coolidge awarded him the Distinguished Flying Cross.

    It's therefore possible/probable that the photo was taken aboard the USS Memphis on June 11th and printed on the same day by Underwood and Underwood. 

    The day after signing this photo a ticker-tape parade was held for Lindbergh down 5th Avenue in NYC.

    Within a year of Lindbergh's Spirit of St Louis flight from NYC to Paris a quarter of all Americans had personally seen Lindbergh and the the Spirit of St Louis, pilot applications had tripled and the number of licensed aircraft had quadrupled.

    By 1929 US air passenger numbers had increased from 5,782 to 173,405 a year.

    Without doubt the best Lindbergh signed photo we have ever handled.

    • An ink portrait of Charlie Chaplin signed by Chaplin himself
    • Dated to 1952, around the release of Limelight

    Charlie Chaplin was the biggest star of the silent era. Born into poverty in Victorian London, he found his way to the stage and on to Hollywood. He came up with the character of the Tramp in 1914. By 1918 he was a household name. A string of classic movies followed, including The Kid (1921), Modern Times (1936) and The Great Dictator (1940).

    This is an ink portrait of Charlie Chaplin in character as the Tramp by the Danish artist Carl Werner Skogholm. The drawing is dated 1952. Chaplin has signed to the right of his portrait “Yours truly, Charlie Chaplin”.

    The date means Chaplin likely signed around the release of Limelight (1952), in which he stars as a washed up former comedian. This is around the time he was barred from America for being a suspected communist. 

    The item is fixed to a paper backing with tape to the top left and bottom right corners.

    • An early and superb 1964 signed photo by Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts, with terrific provenance. 

    Watts has signed “Love Charlie Boy” – his typical autograph – in blue ballpoint pen across a 4.8 x 3.5 inch, previously unknown, black and white photo.

    Charlie Watts (1941-) has been the Rolling Stones’ drummer since 1963. A revered figure by musicians and music fans alike, Watts is widely regarded as among rock’s greatest drummers.

    The 4.8 x 3.5 inch photo was taken backstage at the Brighton Hippodrome on Sunday July 19, 1964 – just seven days after the Stones had their first #1 single with It’s All Over Now.

    The Stones were headlining a bill that included Kenny Lynch and Marty Wilde.

    The photographer was a teenage journalist for amateur magazine Teen Topics.

    Watts signed the photo on the Stones’ next visit to the Brighton Hippodrome, on Sunday October 11, 1964, when the journalist again was permitted access to the band backstage.

    Photos of the Stones in their early years are highly sought after, as are their signatures. Capturing the two together makes this a hugely rare piece.

    It comes directly from the amateur Teen Topics journalist, with a detailed letter of authenticity from her. Good condition.

    • 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.
