    • James Dean's yearbook from Fairmount High School, 1949
    • Rare signing of "Jim" by the soon-to-be screen star
    • Brilliant caption, naming Dean as "our regular basketball guy"
    • Learn more about this piece here 

    James Dean (1931-1955) was an American actor, who has gone on to become a cultural icon - the ultimate Rebel Without a Cause. Due to his death at an early age, his memorabilia is incredibly rare and valuable, giving rise to the term "The James Dean Effect".

    This is a superb single page from the Fairmount High school yearbook, 1949, measuring approximately 10.4” x 7.7”. featuring photo portraits of 10 of that year's graduating students, including James Byron Dean (1931-1955).

    Signed in pencil underneath his portrait "Jim Dean". Instances of Dean's autograph where he has signed "Jim" instead of "James" are extremely rare. An early autograph from the iconic film star.

    Below his photograph, Dean is described as "our regular basketball guy, and when you're around him - time will fly". The right-hand page edge has some loss where it has been carelessly removed from the book, with some minor loss to the edge of Dean's portrait.

    Albert Windsor married Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon in 1923. He was the second in line to the throne, after his older brother, Edward.

     

    However, in 1936 Edward abdicated to marry Wallis Simpson. Albert was forced to take the throne in his place and was crowned George VI.

  • King Henry VII Autographed Historical Document

    King Henry VII Autographed Historical Document

    £27,500.00

    • Clearly signed "HR" by King Henry VII - the first monarch of the House of Tudor
    • Dated 1499 and addressed to Sir Robert Lytton, Keeper of the Great Wardrobe
    • Very good condition for age - document is over 500 years old
    • Click here to discover more about this item 

    Henry VII became King of England and Lord of Ireland on August 22, 1485, after he defeated King Richard III at the famed Battle of Bosworth Field. He is the last English king to win his throne on the battlefield.

    Uniting the House of Plantagenet's rival houses, the House of Lancaster and the House of York, he founded the Tudor dynasty, which would rule over England until 1603.

    His reign is characterised by the restoration of stablitity to the English monarchy after the upheavals of the War of the Roses and before, the Hundred Years War.

    However, his final years were marked by financial scandal that left many in England indebted to the throne, a scandal which was only revealed after his death in 1509. 

    After a 23 year reign, the throne was passed to his son - the charismatic Henry VIII.

    A history of this document 

    This extremely rare signed document features Henry VII's clear and flourishing "H R" autograph. It is addressed to Sir Robert Lytton, Keeper of the Great Wardrobe. 

    The document orders Sir Lytton to deliver to Denys Bonde: "thre brode yerds and an half of tawney for a gowne, and asmoche blak bogee as wol suffice to furre the same. and thre yerds of blak sattyn for a doblet".

    The piece, which measures 7.7" x 3.5", is accompanied by a full translation of the letter which reads as follows:

    "We wol and charge you that vato our Welbeloued seruant denys Bonde ye deliuer or doe (cause - omitted) to bee deliuered thre brode yerds and an half of tawney for a gowne, and asmoche blak bogee as wol suffice to furre the same, and thre yerds of blak sattyn for a doblet and these our letteres shalbe your suffisuant Warraunt in this behalue. yeuen vader oure signet at our manor of Grenewiche the viith day of ffebruary The xiiiith yere of our Reigne.

    "To our trusty and welbeloued knight and counsaillour sir Robert Litton, keper of our great warderobe"

    The Great Wardrobe employed a range of craftsmen who lived and worked in the city.

    The holders of the key posts, such as the king’s tailor and the king’s skinner, were often leading members of their respective livery companies and they were at the centre of a network of other tailors, embroiderers, skinners and tapestry weavers who were employed on a more adhoc basis.

    Condition

    As is common of documents from this time, the page contains a small area of paper loss towards the bottom left corner and slight stain to the lower edge, however, this does not affect the text or the signature.

    Rarity

    Few documents have survived the 500+ years since Henry VII's reign and it is incredibly rare to find one in such good condition.

    A highly desirable piece, well preserved documents from England's early monarchs are scarce on the market, with most now housed in institutional collection.

    King Henry VIII Autographed Document

    £65,000.00

    • Bold, clear signature from Henry VIII - one of England's most iconic monarchs
    • Exceptional content relating to a loan to Sir Richard Gresham, the father of founder of the London Stock Exchange Sir Thomas Gresham
    • Provenance from Sir Thomas Phillipps, who was renowned for the largest collection of manuscripts in the 19th century
    • Vellum document in superb condition dated 1513 - the year Henry VIII invaded France
    • Discover more about this piece here

    Henry VIII was King of England from April 21, 1509 until his death on January 28, 1547.

    Henry's six wives - Catherine of Aragon, Anne Boleyn, Jane Seymour, Anne of Cleves, Katherine Howard and Katherine Parr - are the stuff of legend.

    Henry's struggles with Rome led to the separation of the Church of England from Papal authority, establishing him as the Supreme Head of the Church of England. The move changed the face of religion in England, and has had a lasting effect that is felt around the world today. 

    Henry VIII is also remembered as "one of the most charismatic rulers to sit on the throne of England", as well as a keen patron of the arts, himself being an author and composer.  

    Description & history

    Henry signs a large and bold "Henry R" - short for Henry "Rex Omnibus", the Latin for "king of all". 

    A large 11.3 x 8.5 inches - perfect for display.

    The document is addressed to John Heron, the Treasurer of the Chamber. In it King Henry VIII advises Heron of a loan to then cloth merchant Richard Gresham.

    "Richard Gresham of oure Citie of London with other stonde bounde by obligacion for the payment to oure use of the somme of Sixe hundred thirty seven poundes and ten shillynges at a certayn daie expired".

    Henry VIII informs Heron that the payment to Gresham should be delayed for two years upon existing sureties from Gresham, and that Heron should retain Gresham's bond.

    The sum of money involved is considerable: £637 10s, which equates to £3.9 million today, based on the average earnings index.

    At the time of the loan, the 29-year-old Richard Gresham was a major English cloth merchant trading in Antwerp. He later served as the Lord Mayor of London, a Member of Parliament and was a major financier to the crown - an extremely influential figure.

    The loan from Henry VIII enabled Gresham to found the House of Gresham, one of the most celebrated mercantile and financial houses of the 16th Century. His son, Sir Thomas Gresham, further increased the family fortune and founded the Royal Exchange in the City of London - London's first bourse and the forerunner to London's Stock Exchange.

    As this document describes the loan that helped Gresham found his empire, it is of the utmost importance. Gresham's influence on London is still felt to this day.

    Provenance

    The document once formed part of the collection of Sir Thomas Phillipps, a British Baronet who amassed the largest collection of manuscript material in the 19th Century. His chief collecting rival was the British Library - a testament to the value of his collection.

    Rarity

    Henry VIII is recognised globally due to his role in the historically important changes to religion and his somewhat unorthodox approach to marriage. It is thus not surprising that items related to him are highly sought after by collectors of both historical and royal memorabilia.

    Due to Henry VIII's historical significance, most documents related to his reign are kept in institutions such as the British Library, the National Archives and the British Museum, and are unlikely to reappear on the collectors' market.

    Only a limited number of privately owned documents have survived the 470+ years since Henry VIII's reign and documents of this quality are exceptionally rare.

    Paul Fraser’s view:

    "Henry VIII signatures come up for sale very rarely - most are in museums or libraries.

    "The historical importance of the document makes it particularly special.

    "If it wasn't for Henry's loan to Richard Gresham, he may never have made his fortune, and his son Thomas would never have had the opportunity to establish the Royal Exchange - the precursor to London's Stock Exchange.

    "And you can't get much better than provenance from Sir Thomas Phillipps, the manuscript collector of the 19th century."

  • King Henry VIII Autographed Petition

    King Henry VIII Signed Petition

    £70,000.00

    • Rare document signed "Henry R" by one of England's most iconic monarchs in 1542
    • Pristine condition
    • Clear signature at head of page
    • Exceptionally large - oblong folio on vellum
    • Previously stored in the Crown Office

    King Henry VIII

    Henry VIII was King of England from April 21, 1509 until his death on January 28, 1547.

    Henry's six wives - Catherine of Aragon, Anne Boleyn, Jane Seymour, Anne of Cleves, Katherine Howard and Katherine Parr - are the stuff of legend.

    Henry's struggles with Rome led to the separation of the Church of England from Papal authority, establishing him as the Supreme Head of the Church of England. The move changed the face of religion in England, and has had a lasting effect that is felt around the world today. 

    Henry VIII is also remembered as "one of the most charismatic rulers to sit on the throne of England", as well as a keen patron of the arts, himself being an author and composer. 

    Description

    King Henry VIII's bold, clear signature features prominently on this exceptionally large document, measuring 20" x 11.5".

    Henry's signature is followed by a large R signifying the words, Rex Omnibus, meaning "king of all" in Latin.

    Of the utmost quality, this piece is in pristine condition, a truly remarkable feat considering its age. There are few comparables on the open market.

    The document is a petition from John and Dorothy Wingfield to King Henry VIII, requesting the right to rent the priory of Woodbridge and Haspeley, the rectory of Woodbridge, and the possessions of the priory in Woodbridge, Martlesham, Great Bealings, Hasketon, Grymmesborough, Haspeley and Brandeston.

    Henry's signature indicates he gives his assent to the request.

    Four lines at the head of the document read:

    "To the king o[u]r Soveraigne Lorde, Please it your hieghnes[s] of your mooste noble and abundant grace to gruante your mooste gracious, L[ett]ers patente under your grete Seale of England in due and sufficient fourme to, be made according to the teno[u]r herafter ensuing."

    Following the addition of the King's signature, indicating that the Great Seal could now be attached, petitions such as this would have been passed on to the Chancery, where it would be formally copied and passed under the Great Seal.

    The final copied document would then be passed to the petitioner and would not usually feature the king's signature.

    The original, signed document - such as the example offered - would have been kept in the Crown Office.

    This patent was successful and can be seen on the Patent Rolls dated Westminster, 6th March 1542.

    In the upper left corner is a small notation reading, "Given me 8th June 1797 by Mr. Betts of Colchester" - presumably an addition from one of its early owners after it left the Crown Office.

    Rarity

    It is very rare for a document such as this one to leave the Crown Office.

    Unsurprisingly, few documents have survived the 470+ years since Henry's death.

    Those that have withstood the tests of time are mostly held in institutions such as the British Library, the National Archives and the British Museum, leaving very few in private hands.

    This is a rare opportunity to own an example of King Henry VIII's signature on such a large document in pristine condition.

    Leon Trotsky Autographed Letter

    £4,950.00


    • Typewritten letter from Russian revolutionary Leon Trotsky showing a superb example of his autograph
    • Contains references to some of the most important people and events in his life
    • Learn more about this item here 

    Leon Trotsky was a Russian marxist revolutionary and theorist, who played an instrumental role in the 1917 revolution and servied as the founder and commander of the Red Army. However, he soon came to oppose Joseph Stalin's policies during the 1920s and was later exiled to Mexico, where he was assassinated on Stalin's orders.

    His memorabilia is of great historical importance and, with the rise of Russia's middle-class, is becoming highly sought after as more collectors join the market. Those pieces that are not already housed in institional collections are quickly snapped up by private collectors.

    This one page typed letter is written in French and signed by Trotsky. Measuring 7¼ x 11" and dated May 6, 1939, Trotsky writes to his lawyer, Gerard Rosenthal:

    "We have received with delay the new copy of the letter of Jeanne Molinier concerning the documents and things left by Leon, the first copy of which had been burned on the 'Paris'

    "All the precautionary measures will naturally be taken to ensure that the handing over of the documents be protected from possible attacks"

    The Paris is an ocean liner that caught fire in April 1939. Leon was Trotsky's son (and husband of Jeanne Molinier) who died in a Paris hospital in 1938 following an unsuccessful appendectomy, some say as a result of Stalin's orders.

    At the centre of the family conflict were bundles of documents belonging to Trotsky that were in Molinier's possession.

  • Lewis Carroll Handwritten Letters

    Lewis Carroll Pair of Handwritten Letters

    £8,950.00

    • A pair of handwritten letters by one of the most influential writers of the 19th century.
    • You can learn more about this piece here 

    Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (1832-1898), known more commonly by his pen name Lewis Carroll, was a renowned English writer, mathematician and photographer.

    As Carroll he wrote Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865), its sequel Through the Looking-Glass (1871), and the epic poem The Hunting of the Snark (1876), all of which are classic examples of the literary nonsense genre.

    To date his works have sold millions of copies around the world, and have inspired countless adaptations on the stage and screen.

    Dodgson was also a highly skilled amateur photographer, who took up the new art form during the 1850s and established his own studio, creating an estimated 3,000 photographs during his life.

    In January 1877 Dodgson began a correspondence with Edward T. Draper, an agent for the Royal Marines and a fellow amateur photographer.

    Draper sent Dodgson several photographs, including some of his 13-year-old daughter Dolly, telling him she was a fan of his books.

    Dodgson then wrote in return to Dolly Draper, and struck up a friendship with the family.

    These two handwritten letters are part of that correspondence.

    Dodgson's first letter, dated February 5, 1877, included a photograph of himself and poked fun at his famous 'alter ego' of Lewis Carroll:

    "Here is the portrait of the man I told you about. He is no relation of mine (but I have known him all my life)—at least, if he is a relation, I don’t know what sort of relation you would call him—He is about the same age as I am, but he certainly isn’t my brother, nor any kind of cousin."

    The four-page letter is written across two adjoining sheets, and measures 3.25 x 5.25". In fine condition, with a rusty paperclip mark on the top of the front page.

    In the second letter, dated April 12, 1877, Dodgson mentions sending Draper and her family copies of his most famous books, and also includes a piece of nonsense wordplay typical of his work:

    "I think the only way to prevent you all forgetting me again…is to send each a copy of some one of my 3 books…I’ll tell you what I was thinking of sending…—For Jessie, Alice’s Adventures…for Roger, the Snark…& for you, the Looking-glass…

    "With these helps, you may perhaps remember me for a while, but it will give a far better chance if you would put me in among your Modern History dates…—And then if even Roger says ‘Why, I don’t believe you care a fig for Mr. Dodgson,’ you can say ‘Ah, but I care a date for him!’"

    The three page letter is written on two adjoining sheets, measuring 4.5 x 7", and is in fine condition. Dodgson's signature at the bottom of the letter has been clipped, and replaced with a facsimile.

    Both letters are written in Dodgson's trademark violet ink, an unusual colour which he used for the majority of his correspondence throughout his life.

    Additionally, the second letter is contained in its original folder from Walter Benjamin Autographs, the renowned US autograph dealership established in 1887.

    Benjamin is recognized as playing a significant role is the development of the autograph collecting hobby in the late 19th and early 20th century, and the company continued to trade for 121 years.

    Later typed copies of both the letters are also included.
