    The 1966 FIFA World Cup is the only World Cup football tournament to have been won by England, who beat West Germany 4-2 in the final on July 30, 1966.

    The 1966 World Cup final is remembered by football fans for a number of reasons besides being England's only World Cup victory. The game was the first (and only) time that a player had scored three goals in a World Cup final, with Geoff Hurst scoring three of England's four goals.

    The game is also remembered for the controversy that surrounded England's third goal. Did Geoff Hurst's shot cross the line? 

    An Anglo-American Sporting Club boxing dinner evening menu signed handsomely by all 22 members of the 1966 England World Cup football team at the London Hilton on June 20, 1966. That's just three weeks before the tournament began and a mere 40 days before England lifted the trophy.

    Also features the autograph of England's manager, Alf Ramsey. 

    A rare set of football autographs and impossible to recreate today, as several members of the 22 have passed away.

    • A 4.75 x 3 inch album page signed by Albert Einstein in 1925, during a lecture tour of Argentina
    • The autograph appears alongside others by several Argentine intellectuals, including Mauricio Nirenstein and Jorge Duclout

    Albert Einstein was one of the world’s greatest scientific minds. In the early 1900s he developed the Theory of Relativity, which remains a key tenet of modern physics. A German citizen, he left the country shortly before Hitler seized power and never returned – choosing instead to spend the rest of his life in America. He was instrumental in developing the first atomic bombs in the 1940s, in spite of his lifelong commitment to pacifism. 

    Einstein travelled widely in the early 1920s, visiting countries in Asia, Europe, the Middle East and the Americas.

    In 1922, the University of Buenos Aires invited him to give a series of lectures on relativity. Einstein accepted and made the long journey out three years later, in 1925. He was warmly received in Argentina and gave a number of interviews with the press on a range of subjects - including politics, pacifism and Judaism.

    Einstein signed this album page during this month-long trip. His autograph appears in the centre, surrounded by signatures from various Argentine intellectuals.

    It’s a beautiful specimen, accompanied by PSA authentication and extensive information on his time in Buenos Aires.

    Einstein is among the most sought after signatures on the market. In 2017, a note he signed for a Japanese courier sold for a world record $1.5m.

    • A signed copy of Russian author Alexandr Solzhenitsyn’s acclaimed 1962 novel One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich

    Alexandr Solzhenitsyn (1918-2008) was born in Stavropol Krai in south western Russia shortly after the October revolution.

    In 1945, he was sentenced to eight years in a gulag for complaining about the Soviet regime in a letter to a friend. The harshness of the labour camp served to compound his feelings about life under communism.

    Solzhenitsyn wrote in secret for many years, including his time in the gulag. Following the death of Stalin in 1952, the climate of repression in Russia began to ease. 

    In 1962, he published One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich in a literary magazine with the blessing of First Secretary Nikolai Khrushchev. However, that brief window of permissiveness closed soon after. This would be the first and last text Solzhenitysn was able to publish in the Soviet Union.

    The rest of Solzhenitsyn’s catalogue was published in the West. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1970 and expelled from the Soviet Union in 1974. In 1990 he was permitted to return to Russia, where he lived out the rest of his days.  

    One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich follows the titular character through 24 hours in a typical gulag. The text exposes the cruelty of the system and the ways in which it crushes the human spirit.

    This is a 1978 Penguin edition of the novel (measuring 4.6 x 7 inches).

    Solzhenitysn has signed in blue pen on the title page. It’s dated 1980.

    The book is accompanied by a note from Solzhenitsyn’s secretary (presumably in reply to a request) that reads: “I am very sorry, but Mr Solzhenitsyn does not grant any autographs (except on his books).”

    This is a rare opportunity to own a signature from one of the most compelling and controversial writers of the 20th century.

    • A superb autograph from legendary singer Amy Winehouse (1983-2011)

    Amy Winehouse was one of the brightest stars of her generation. Her debut album Frank, released in 2003 when she was just 20, introduced listeners to her unique voice. The follow-up, Back to Black (2006), established her as a global celebrity.

    Sadly Winehouse was unable to cope with the intense media scrutiny her success brought. She began drinking heavily and using drugs. The next five years were a chaotic downward spiral, interspersed with time in and out of rehab. She died of alcohol poisoning at her home in London in 2011, aged just 27.

    This is a large and charismatic Amy Winehouse autograph inscribed: “Love Amy”. It's presented on a 19.7 x 11.5 inch white card backing along with an 8 x 11 inch photograph (circa 2007). 

    Demand for Amy Winehouse memorabilia is extremely high given her global fan base and status as an early icon of the 21st century. This is a rare chance to acquire one of the best examples of her autograph on the market.

    Bebe Daniels and Ben Lyon autographed photo

    £150.00

    • A rare and beautiful Bebe Daniels and Ben Lyon autographed photo

    Ben Lyon (1901-1979) began his career as an actor on Broadway. He starred in a number of Hollywood movies, notably 1930's Hell's Angels. Following the decline of his acting career he became a studio executive with 20th Century Fox.

    It was while working at 20th Century Fox that Lyon discovered a young actress, Norma Jeane Dougherty, renamed her Marilyn Monroe, organised her first colour screen test, and signed her to her first studio contract. Of Monroe, he is quoted as saying that she was "Jean Harlow all over again".

    Lyon married Bebe Daniels (1901-1971) in 1930, at the height of his success. Daniels was a star in her own right, carving out a career as a child actress in Hollywood's silent movies. She made over 230 films and, from the 1950s, worked on radio and television to much acclaim in England.

    This striking photograph shows the successful couple bathed in soft light. The Hollywood sheen of glamour is evident with the flawless skin and engaging eyes. Lyon's hair is greased back neatly, his eyebrows slightly furrowed with intensity. Daniel's hair is softly curled, her eyes and lips glossed heavily in make-up.

    Sepia-toned and attractively mounted, the photograph measures 6.5 x 4.5 inches, without mount. Daniels' and Lyon's autographs feature in the bottom portion of the photograph. Daniels has written: "Our best wishes, Bebe Daniels", with Lyon adding "Ben Lyon".

    The photograph is in excellent condition, with the autographs standing out superbly against the photograph's white border.

    Their autographs are rare separately, together they're extremely scarce.

    Bela Lugosi autograph display

    £1,070.00

    • An exceptional signature and display from Bela Lugosi, legendary star of Dracula (1931)

    Hungarian born Bela Lugosi (1882-1956) left school early in the 1890s. By the turn of the century he began taking roles in local theatre productions. He starred in several movies in Hungary but fled the country in 1919 as the communist regime fell.

    Lugosi travelled to New York in 1920 to continue his stage career, playing to audiences who remembered him from the old country. That same decade he starred in a touring production of Dracula and was awarded the role in the onscreen adaptation of the play in 1930. A brief but glittering career in horror followed.

    Sadly Lugosi became addicted to painkillers in the 1940s, which effectively ended his career – although he had a reprisal in Ed Wood’s cult series of B-movies in the 1950s (including Glen or Glenda and Plan 9 From Outer Space). Lugosi died in 1956. He was buried in the cloak he wore in Dracula.

    A huge pencil autograph from actor Bela Lugosi on an off-white 5 x 6.75 inch album page. Very rare, especially in this size.

    The piece is mounted in a 19.7 x 22.7 inch black frame alongside a print of the poster for Dracula (1931). A stunning item that celebrates a giant of Hollywood’s golden age.

    • A rare Bert Lahr autographed photo depicting him as the Cowardly Lion in The Wizard of Oz

    Bert Lahr (1895-1967) was an American stage and screen performer, best-known for his role as the Cowardly Lion in the timeless classic The Wizard of Oz.

    Lahr began his career as a vaudeville performer on the Columbia Burlesque Circuit, and worked his way up to starring roles on Broadway, before heading to Hollywood in the 1930s.

    He featured in several films before landing the part of the Cowardly Lion in the 1939 MGM musical, starring alongside Judy Garland, Ray Bolger and Jack Haley.

    During filming, Lahr was known to ad-lib lines, causing numerous re-takes as his co-stars burst out laughing. When later asked by reporters if he was worried about being typecast, he replied, "Yeah, but how many parts are there for lions?"

    Lahr returned to the stage later in his career, co-starring in the 1956 US premiere of Samuel Beckett's Waiting for Godot, and winning the 1964 Tony Award for Best Leading Actor in a Musical for his role in Foxy.

    This vintage 10 x 8 photograph features Lahr in his full Cowardly Lion costume, and is strikingly signed "To Vickie, with love, Uncle Bert" at the top of the image in blue ink. The recipient was Lahr's niece Vickie Arthur.

    Lahr was an infrequent signer of autographs during his life, and signed photographs of him in his most iconic role as the Cowardly Lion are highly rare.

    £750.00

    • An excellent set of autographs from the three principal cast members of US TV sitcom Bewitched (1964-1972)
    Bewitched starred Elizabeth Montgomery (1933-1995) as witch turned housewife Samantha and Dick York (1928-1992) as her long-suffering husband. The show has been in syndication since the early 1970s. It remains popular with generations of Americans.
     
    This fabulous display piece features three signatures from the main stars of Bewitched – Dick York (Darrin Stevens), Elizabeth Montgomery (Samantha Stephens) and Erin Murphy (Tabitha Stephens).
     
    Montgomery has signed on a cheque for $74.50 made out to a pool service based in Westlake Village, California. It’s dated May 3, 1978.
     
    York’s signature and inscription (“Best Wishes Dick York”) features on a cut album page. York starred in Bewitched for 156 episodes from 1964-1969. He left when his chronic back pain made standing impossible. Keen viewers will notice he spent most of his time sitting or lying down in later episodes.
     
    Erin Murphy's autograph also features the inscription “Tabitha” – the character she appears as in the show.
     
    This is a must-have piece for any Bewitched fan. The autographs are presented on a 19.4 x 12.5 inch black backing, with a black and white publicity photograph of the characters together.

    Charles De Gaulle signed WW2 menu

    £1,495.00

    • 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 signed cheque

    £3,500.00

    • A Coutts cheque signed by the great Victorian author and social reformer Charles Dickens on March 27, 1861

    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.

    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 Lindbergh signed photograph

    £9,500.00

    • 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.

    Che Guevara signed certificate

    £4,950.00

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

    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.

      • A signed copy of Clyde Tombaugh's Ten Special Commandments for a Would-Be Planet Hunter 

      Clyde W. Tombaugh (1906-1997) is the American astronomer who discovered the dwarf planet Pluto in 1930. During the course of his career, he also discovered nearly 800 asteroids and the first object in the Kuiper Belt.

      Tombaugh travelled the United States giving talks on astronomy, in particular, his discovery of Pluto. During the talks he would often share his light hearted version of the Ten Commandments called "Ten Special Commandments for a Would-Be Planet Hunter".

      The commandments are as follows:

      "Behold the heavens and the great vastness thereof, for a planet could be anywhere therein.

      Thou shalt dedicate thy whole being to the search project with infinite patience and perseverance.

      Though shalt set no other work before thee for the search shall keep thee busy enough.

      Though shalt take the plates at opposition time lest thou be deceived by asteroids near their stationary positions.

      Though shalt duplicate the plates with a pair at the same hour angle lest refraction distortions overtake thee.

      Thou shalt give adequate overlap of adjacent plate regions lest the planet play hide and seek with thee.

      Thou must not become ill in the dark of the moon lest thou fall behind the opposition point.

      Thou shalt have no dates except at full moon when long exposure plates cannot be taken at the telescope.

      Many false planets shall appear before thee, hundreds of them, and thou shalt check every one with a third plate.

      Thou shalt not engage in any dissipation, that thy years may be many for thou shalt need them to finish the job!"

      This is a souvenir copy of Ten Special Commandments for a Would-Be Planet Hunter according to Clyde Tombaugh measuring 8.5 x 11 inches. Tombaugh would sell these souvenir copies at talks he gave about his discovery of Pluto so that he could raise money for scholarships for young people to study astronomy.

      This sheet has been signed "Clyde W. Tombaugh, 31 July 1984" in blue ink across the bottom. It features some archive folds which do not affect the autograph. Otherwise in excellent condition.

      • Autographs of 12 Disney animators and voice actors, including four of the legendary "Nine Old Men"
      • Additional drawings of Disney's most famous characters by those who created them

      Walt Disney (1901 – 1966) was a celebrated voice actor, animator, film producer and entrepreneur who became an American cultural icon.

      Having founded the Disney Brothers Cartoon Studio in 1923, Disney rose to fame with the creation of Mickey Mouse and became a household name across the world.

      As a producer he pushed the boundaries of animation, releasing classics such as Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Pinocchio, Dumbo and Fantasia, along with the Oscar-winning Mary Poppins.

      Disney currently holds the record for the number of Academy Awards won by an individual, having won 22 Oscars from 59 nominations.

      In 1955 Disney also established Disneyland, the most successful theme park ever built, which to date has attracted more than 650 million visitors.

      Walt Disney's films have entertained millions of viewers, influenced generations of film-makers, and Walt Disney Studios remains the most famous and successful entertainment company in the world. 

      This signed first edition book, Walt Disney's America from NY Abbeville Press's 1978 first printing is signed by 12 Disney animators and voice actors, who have autographed the inside front cover and opening pages in a variety of inks. Some of the signers have inscribed notes addressed to 'Terry', with superb additional sketches of some of the most beloved characters - including Mickey Mouse.

      Some light ink transfer from the signatures and mild handling to the book, otherwise in fine condition.

      The nickname "Nine Old Men" was given to the core animators at Walt Disney Productions, many of whom were in their thirties and forties at the time. Four of the 'Nine Old Men' have signed this item; Frank Thomas, Ollie Johnston, Marc Davis and Ward Kimball who includes a sketch of Mickey.

      Thomas was master craftsman of the 'baddie'; his work includes Cinderella's Stepmother, Alice in Wonderland's Queen of Hearts and Peter Pan's Captain Hook.

      Likewise, Davis created Sleeping Beauty's iconic Maleficent and the evil Cruella De Vil from One Hundred and One Dalmatians.

      Johnston first worked on Snow White before progressing to work in Peter Pan, Cinderella and Robin Hood.

      Ward Kimball created Pinocchio's Jiminy Cricket, Lucifer, Jaq and Gus in Cinderella and the Mad hatter and Cheshire Cat in Alice in Wonderland.

      Animator Sam McKim has added a rare sketch of Abraham Lincoln, while Bill Justice, co-creator of Chip N'Dale, has added a sketch of Mickey Mouse.

      Likewise, Ken Anderson (art director) and Andreas Deja (supreme villain animator) have also sketched Mickey Mouse, the latter showing slight yellow haloing.

      The signatures of Tony Baxter (imaginer/designer), Carl banks (Donald Duck artist) Jack Wagner (original voice of the Magic Kingdom) and Herbert Ryman (background artist and designer of the Disneyland Castle) are also inscribed.

      £5,950.00

      • Satirical illustration from E H Shepard
      • Original artwork signed by the artist
      • Originates from the Shepard family's own holding

      Ernest Howard "EH" Shepard (1879-1976) was a popular cartoonist, perhaps most famous for his illustrations of Winnie the Pooh in the famous books by A.A. Milne. He is also known for bringing to life the characters in Kenneth Grahame's The Wind in the Willows.

      Shepard worked as a cartoonist for Punch magazine from 1921 until 1953, and his work is often thought of as somewhat gentle and uplifting. Fellow cartoonist John Jenson once said "Shepard moved from strength to strength, increasingly able to impose his quiet humour on otherwise grim and humourless topics."

      This original, signed drawing measures 8¼" x 7¾" and is mounted to an overall size of 15" x 15".

      The detailed drawing shows Mr Punch standing is his living room which is adorned with Christmas holly. Mr Punch is holding a copy of a newspaper whose headline reads "COAL DISPUTE" and looking at Toby the dog who is holding an empty scuttle and pointing to the small amount of coal on the fire.

      EH Shepard has autographed the original drawing in the bottom left hand corner.

      The drawing is a reference to the dispute that resulted from the Coal Mines Reorganisation Commission's proposal to regulate the production and supply of coal, and merge small mines.

      Headed "VOLUME CXC", it is thought that this particular drawing was used as the front cover of the volume of Punch magazine January to June 1936.

      This rare piece comes from the Shepard family's own holding.

      Elizabeth Taylor love letter to Richard Burton

      £35,000.00

      • A handwritten love letter written from Elizabeth Taylor to husband Richard Burton in 1974
      • Incredible content that lays bare the passion between this legendary couple 

      Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton were two of the world's biggest stars when they embarked on an affair on the set of Cleopatra (1961).

      Their romance was tumultuous. Burton was a womaniser and both were heavy drinkers. Still they were unable to stay apart for long. They were married twice, with both weddings leading to divorce. So intense was the relationship that it has gone down in Hollywood history. 

      A love letter written, in pencil, by Elizabeth Taylor to her husband Richard Burton on their 10 year wedding anniversary, March 15th 1974, just days before their breakup.

      Taylor and Burton were renting a house in Oroville, California while Burton was filming his latest movie "The Klansman". Their lease on the home began on February 15th 1974.

      The letter reads in full:

      "My darling (my still) My husband. I wish I could tell you of my love for you, of my fear, my delight, my pure animal pleasure of you - (with you) - my jealousy, my pride, my anger at you, at times.

      Most of all my love for you, and whatever love you can dole out to me - I wish I could write about it but I can't. I can only "boil and bubble" inside and hope you understand how I really feel.

      Anyway I lust thee, Your (still) Wife. P.S. O'Love, let us never take each other for granted again! P.P.S. How about that - 10 years!!"

      Taylor had warned Burton from the start of their marriage in 1964 that she had zero tolerance for infidelity. However during the filming of When Eagles Dare, Burton resumed an affair with co-star Mary Ure. After that, Taylor made sure she was on set with Burton every day in 1969 for the shooting of Anne Of The Thousand Days.

      A further affair with co-star Genevieve Bujold lasted many years. An affair with Nathalie Delon followed in 1972, along with rumours of an affair with Raquel Welch.

      Taylor finally lost patience during the filming of The Klansman when Burton commenced an affair with "a teenager, a hotel waitress and a string of other women."

      The love letter is accompanied by a letter of provenance from Toni Hennings, the woman who rented the Oroville house to them:

      "This letter written by Elizabeth Taylor while renting my home from Feb 15th til April 18th 1974. It was left behind - inside a book in a drawer under the masterbedroom bed."

      To our knowledge no other Taylor-Burton love letter has ever been offered for sale.

      Elvis Presley Twice-Signed Album

      £14,950.00

      • A highly rare Elvis Presley album signed twice by the King of rock and roll.
      • Gifted to a fellow member of his US Army unit during his military service in Germany.

      Elvis Presley (1935 – 1977) was one of the most iconic and influential performers of the 20th century, known to his fans simply as "The King".

      As one of the originators of rock and roll, he created a music style which changed the world and inspired generations of artists from the Beatles to the present day.

      Presley remains the best-selling solo artist of all-time, with estimated record sales of 600 million, and performed over numerous styles including rockabilly, pop, blues and gospel.

      Today millions of fans flock from around the world to visit his former home of Graceland in Memphis, Tennessee, and rare items of his memorabilia regularly sell for tens of thousands of dollars at auction.

      'Elvis' was Presley's second studio album, released in the US in October 1956, and featured a mix of original songs, country ballads and Little Richard covers.

      The record also featured a version of 'Old Shep' – the 1940s country song that Elvis had first performed in a Tupelo talent contest when he was just 10 years old.

      The album spent four weeks at the top of the Billboard Pop Albums chart, making Elvis the first recording artist to have their first two albums go straight to #1 in the same year.

      Five months after the release of the album, Presley was inducted into the US Army. He was assigned to Company A of the 3rd Armored Division's 1st Medium Tank Battalion, and completed his basic training at Fort Hood, Texas before heading overseas.

      Elvis autographed and inscribed this copy of the album to a fellow member of the 3rd Armored Division whilst he was stationed in Friedberg, West Germany, and remained in the same family's collection for years.

      The album bears Presley's autograph in bold blue ink on the reverse of the album cover, and another inscribed "Many thanks! Elvis Presley" on the album's protective inner sleeve.

      The album sleeve shows overall age wear, creases and scuffed edges/corners. The original vinyl record is still present within.

      This record represents the first signed Elvis Presley album we've ever had the pleasure of offering at Paul Fraser Collectibles.

      Bearing not one, but two bold signatures, it represents a superb opportunity and would take pride of place in any music fan's collection.
