    • A scarce signature by one of the most significant political leaders of the 20th century

    Fidel Castro (1926 – 2016) was a Cuban revolutionary and politician who led the Republic of Cuba as Prime Minister from 1959 to 1976, and then as President from 1976 to 2008.

    Castro was the architect behind the Cuban Revolution in 1959, which overturned the right-wing authoritarian government and turned the nation into a one-party socialist state.

    Castro remains one of the most divisive political figures of the 20th century, revered by many as a champion of social justice and anti-imperialism, and hated by others as a brutal dictator.

    Prior to his death in November 2016, Castro was listed on the PFC40 Autograph Index as the world's most valuable living signature, with the price of his autograph having risen 16.9% per annum since 2000.

    This signed certificate measures 16.6" by 11.7", and was presented to Yumey Lopez Gonzales on July 26, 2001.

    Signed certificates such as this were presented to members of the University Brigades of Social Work, student groups formed to research social and living conditions within Cuba.

    The translated certificate reads in full:

    "In the name of the revolution we congratulate you for your participation in the university brigades of social work that did an excellent job in the neighbourhoods of the capital. We look forward to you as an active member of the glorious university student federation, the cooperation to create in our homeland a still more just and humane society that today is within reach of our intelligent, selfless and brave people."

    The certificate is signed boldly by Castro in blue ink, and features a horizontal crease, along with minor wrinkling and soiling.

    Fidel Castro (1926 – 2016) was a Cuban revolutionary and politician who led the Republic of Cuba as Prime Minister from 1959 to 1976, and then as President from 1976 to 2008.

    Castro was the architect behind the Cuban Revolution in 1959, which overturned the right-wing authoritarian government and turned the nation into a one-party socialist state.

    Castro remains one of the most divisive political figures of the 20th century, revered by many as a champion of social justice and anti-imperialism, and hated by others as a brutal dictator.

    Prior to his death in November 2016, Castro was listed on the PFC40 Autograph Index as the world's most valuable living signature, with the price of his autograph having risen 16.9% per annum since 2000.

     

    This printed booklet contains the text of a speech by Fidel Castro entitled "Pay tribute to the empire or pay tribute to the motherland".

    Castro gave the speech on July 18, 1985, during the final session of the Latin American and Caribbean Workers Trade Union conference in Havana.

    The conference was held at the peak of the Latin American debt crisis, which saw many countries crippled by billions of dollars in foreign debts far outweighing their national GDP.

    Many delegates, including Castro himself, called for the debts to be cancelled to help the Central American economy to recover.

    "I like the total cancellation of the debt more than a mouse would like a ton of Swiss cheese,' said Castro during the conference, and later suggested "the debt will never be paid anyway...it's mathematically impossible".

    During the conclusion of his stirring speech, Castro declared:

    "I have sometimes been accused of being an optimist.  Some companeros remember when we met for the first time, and we were seven guerrilla members carrying rifles...

    "I told them: We have won the war.  We were only seven men.  Some companeros said that out of respect for me, they said nothing, but they disagreed...Anyway, time went by and we won the war.  So, do not be afraid to be optimistic.  Life has shown me that we must not be afraid to be optimistic. 

    "I told you that I know this continent, this region of the world can become free and lead the struggle.  Today, we are also fully convinced that the workers will also be leaders of this struggle between the different levels and sectors of the population.  They will be the vanguard of this struggle."

    The booklet is signed boldly by Castro in black ink on the title page, and remains in good condition, with light creasing to the front cover.

    Booklet measures 5.5 x 8".

    • A superbly signed and inscribed programme from Frank Sinatra with extraordinary Korean War link

    Frank Sinatra (1915–1998) was one of the most iconic and influential performers of the 20th century.

    Known to his fans as 'Ol' Blue Eyes', or simply ' The Voice', Sinatra has sold more than 150 million albums worldwide, making him among the biggest recording artists in music history.

    He was also a renowned screen actor, winning an Academy Award for his role in From Here to Eternity, and starring in critically-acclaimed films such as The Man with the Golden Arm, The Manchurian Candidate and Guys and Dolls.

    Sinatra was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by Ronald Reagan in 1985, and the Congressional Gold Medal in 1997.

    Frank Sinatra signed and inscribed this souvenir programme on 19 July 1953 at the De Montfort Hall, Leicester, UK, where he was performing a double bill.

    The venue’s entertainment manager acquired the signature from Sinatra backstage in his dressing room. He explained to Sinatra that his son, who was in the British Army, would shortly be leaving for the Korean War. Upon hearing this, Sinatra wrote: “All the Best Son – Hope it’s over before you get there. Frank Sinatra”.

    After receiving the programme, the manager’s son folded it and put it in the top pocket of his army uniform and carried it to Korea, where Sinatra’s words came true. The war was over by the time he arrived.

    The single sheet programme is in delicate condition, and contains the expected folds. Sinatra’s blue ink inscription and signature remain in crisp, superb condition.

    Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from the son, and a photocopy of the Leicester Mercury newspaper cutting detailing the son’s presence in Korea with the British Army.

    Sinatra signatures and inscriptions are highly sought after. Few offer such insight into Sinatra’ personality and charm.

    • Read more about this piece here 

    Frank Sinatra (1915 – 1998) was one of the most iconic and influential performers of the 20th century.

    Known to his fans as 'Ol' Blue Eyes', or simply ' The Voice', Sinatra has sold more than 150 million albums worldwide, making him amongst the biggest recording artists in music history.

    He was also a renowned screen actor, winning an Academy Award for his role in From Here to Eternity, and starring in critically-acclaimed films such as The Man with the Golden Arm, The Manchurian Candidate and Guys and Dolls.

    Sinatra was later awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by Ronald Reagan in 1985, and the Congressional Gold Medal in 1997.

    In May 1970, Frank Sinatra returned to England for his first live appearances in eight years, backed by Count Basie and his Orchestra.

    He performed two sold-out midnight shows at the Royal Festival Hall in London, in aid of the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC).

    In attendance were Princess Margaret, president of the charity, along with stars such as Peter Sellers, Michael Caine, Richard Attenborough and the cream of London society.

    Those who witnessed the shows described them as a landmark moment in Sinatra's career – a view shared by Ol' Blue Eyes himself.

    He later said in a radio interview that he felt the performances were "his finest hour", and was evidently frustrated that they had not been professionally recorded.

    According to legend, Sinatra was so desperate for a copy of his performance that night that he personally wrote to the British Sinatra Music Society, asking if anyone had illegally recorded it.

    He was apparently in luck, and one member of the society sent him a bootleg tape, receiving a gift from Sinatra in return as thanks.

    The typed set-list lists the many classic songs Sinatra performed during the shows, such as 'Fly Me to the Moon', 'The Lady Is a Tramp', 'That's Life' and 'I've Got You Under my Skin', along with his show-stopping encore of 'My Way'.

    The single-page list measures 8 x 10", and bears Sinatra's clear autograph in black ballpoint.

    The set-list is accompanied by a letter related to the concerts, dated April 13, 1970, and the original mailing envelope.

    A rare signed set-list from one of Frank Sinatra's greatest-ever live performances.

    • A superb full set of 1964 Rolling Stones signatures (Brian Jones, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Bill Wyman and Charlie Watts) on a single page of an autograph book.

    The Rolling Stones are the world’s biggest band and have defined the image of the “rock star”. They have enjoyed eight UK #1s and continue to sell out tours around the world.  

    The five Stones all signed the single page of the autograph book backstage at the Brighton Hippodrome before their concert there on Sunday July 19, 1964. That’s just seven days after the Stones had their first #1 single with It’s All Over Now.

    Finding all five original members’ signatures together is a rare feat – especially of this high quality.

    The Stones were there to headline a bill that included Kenny Lynch, who has also signed the page.

    The autographs were collected in person by the book’s owner, a teenage journalist for amateur magazine Teen Topics. The collection comes directly from her. She has also supplied a detailed letter of authenticity.

    The 5.75 x 4.25 inch autograph book is in fair condition. The Stones signatures and the page are in very good condition.

    The autograph album also includes signatures from other big 1960s acts including the Hollies, Gerry and the Pacemakers, Manfred Mann and the Nashville Teens.

    There is also the notable signature of “Beatle” Jimmie Nicol. He signed the autograph book on July 12, 1964, just a month after his celebrated two week stint filling in with the Beatles for a tonsillitis-ridden Ringo.

    This album captures the excitement of it was to be a Stones fan, and a music fan, in 1964.

    • A rare 1730 single page document signed by King George II and Robert Walpole, Britain’s first Prime Minister
    • The document is a warrant to Britain’s second Prime Minister, Spencer Compton
    • Huge size: 18.5 x 11 inches

    Robert Walpole (1676-1745) is widely regarded as Britain’s first Prime Minister. He held the role, officially the “First Lord of the Treasury”, for 22 years between 1721 and 1742 - making him the longest serving British Prime Minister to date. He established 10 Downing Street as the home of the Prime Minister. He is also the only Prime Minister to have been previously tried for corruption and imprisoned in the Tower of London – a fate that befell him in 1712 for opposing the Tory government. An astute political operator, Walpole's greatest achievement is arguably restoring the country’s financial security following the 1720 financial crisis that was the South Sea Bubble.

    George II (1683-1760) reigned from 1727 until his death. He was the last British king born outside the UK, and the last to lead his troops in battle, when the British defeated the French at Dettingen in 1743 during the War of the Austrian Succession. George’s wife, Caroline, held great influence over him. In 1727 she dissuaded George from replacing Walpole in the top job with Spencer Compton.

    Spencer Compton (1673-1743) was Britain’s second Prime Minister. Hard working but limited, he achieved the position of First Lord of the Treasury following Walpole’s resignation in 1742. Compton held the role for just 18 months before his death, becoming the first Prime Minister to die in office.

    George II signs the document handsomely “George R” in black ink at the court at Windsor Castle on July 2, 1730.

    Countersigned flamboyantly in black ink at the foot by Robert Walpole, and politicians George Dodington and William Yonge.

    The document is a warrant to the future Prime Minister Spencer Compton in his role as late Paymaster General of the Guards, Garrisons, and Land Forces. The warrant states that three regiments should be deducted 12 pence of every 20 shillings, and one day's pay per year. The funds to be used by the Royal Hospital in Chelsea.

    Crisply trimmed along the left edge. This slightly impacts the text but not the signatures. Features small tears along lower and right edges. There is also a small water stain to the lower edge.  

    A striking document that bears the rare feature of both George II and Robert Walpole’s signatures. Enhanced by the fame of its recipient, Spencer Compton.

    Gerhard Richter P8 Ifrit print

    £12,000.00

    • An original print by German contemporary artist Gerhard Richter 

    Gerhard Richter is one of the most acclaimed contemporary artists working today. His now iconic Abstraktes Bild paintings are amongst the most desirable works on the market, with one selling at auction in 2015 for $46m.

    This group of works is based on Richter’s seminal Flow paintings, which were created by capturing poured enamel paints on a glass surface. High-resolution photographs of the originals have been transformed into chromatographic prints, precisely reproducing the combination of chance gesture and careful composition within the originals.

    These editions are referred to by the artist as "facsimile objects"; although they proceed from the Flow paintings, this series is distinct from the originals in a number of ways. In some cases, the artist has decided to present them differently; in others, they represent the only version of paintings that no longer exist. Where the original paintings have been damaged, the editions have been produced using digitally reconstructed images

    • Presented in an attractive 22.5 by 20 inch black wood frame – perfect for display

    Gordon Banks (1937-2019) is widely regarded as England’s finest goalkeeper and one of the greatest glove men of all time. A World Cup winner in 1966, arguably his finest moment came at the tournament four years later in Mexico, when he pulled off “the greatest ever save” from a Pele header.

    Scotland international goalkeeper Bob Wilson said of Banks: “Here was a guy who set new standards and who was, on and off the field, an absolute legend and a wonderful human being.”

    This large 22.5 by 20 inch display features a white 8 by 4 inch goalkeeping glove signed “Gordon Banks” in black felt tip. The glove is displayed beautifully alongside a 13.5 by 9.5 inch photograph of Banks making “the save” from Pele at the 1970 World Cup in Mexico.

    Grandma Moses Autographed Photograph

    £995.00

    • A signed photograph of American outsider artist Grandma Moses, dated 1951 

    American painter Grandma Moses (1860-1961) was discovered by the collector Louis Caldor. At the time, Grandma Moses was bartering paintings at the Women's Exchange during the Great Depression. Otto Kallir, an art dealer, put some of her work on display at his New York gallery, Galerie Saint-Etienne. The paintings were well received and went on to exhibit in Europe and Japan.

    Grandma Moses only began painting later in life, as it was gentler on her arthritis-stricken hands than needlework. Self-taught, her art can be described as 'primitive' or folk art, disregarding strict perspective.

    This rare candid photo of Moses, 3½" x 3½", shows the artist standing outside her home. The picture is autographed on the lower border in black ink, Grandma Moses. On the reverse, the item is stamped This is a Kodacolor Print, Made by Eastman Kodak Company…Week of Sept 24, 1951.

    Some light toning and fading. The signature is in excellent condition, very clear and crisp.

    £4,575.00

    Great Britain Crown George II (1727-1760).

    Metal: Silver

    Type: Milled - Old head, Roses

    Mint Mark: 1743 Decimo Septimo

    Obverse: Laureate, cuirassed, draped old bust left.

    Reverse: Cruciform crowned shields, roses in angles, legend - Hanoverian titles.

    Superb condition piece - beautifully and evenly darkly tones with underlying lustre. Rare in this grade and difficult to better. The four roses in the angles between the shields on the reverse signify that the silver that this coin is made of, came from West Country mines. There are two different portraits used, the young head bust used from 1732 to 1741, followed by the oder bust (this coin) used from 1743 to 1751.

    George was the last British Monarch born outside Great Britain and was born and brought up in Northern Germany. He was also the last British Monarch to lead an army in Battle - in 1743 at the battle of Dettingen. In 1745, supporters of the Catholic claimant to the British Throne, James Francis Edward Stuart (''''The Old Pretender''''), led by James's son Charles Edward Stuart (''''The Young Pretender'''' or ''''Bonnie Prince Charlie'''') attempted and failed to depose George in the last of the Jacobite rebellions. His son Frederick died unexpectedly in 1751 leaving George's grandson to become George III.
