  • Yousuf Karsh Autograph on a Copy of 'Karsh a Fifty-Year Retrospective'
    • A signed copy of Yousuf Karsh's book Karsh a Fifty-Year Retrospective 

    Yousuf Karsh (1908-2002) was a Canadian photographer of Armenian heritage, regarded as the one the greatest portrait photographers of all time.

    Karsh a Fifty-Year Retrospective is a stunning photographic book featuring 188 of Karsh's finest portraits.

    Included are Ernest Hemingway, Albert Einstein, Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, Brigitte Bardot, Pablo Picasso, Walter Kronkite, JFK and Winston Churchill.

    Karsh's image of Churchill brought him international prominence, and is claimed to be the most reproduced photographic portrait in history.

    He explained: "Churchill's cigar was ever present. I held out an ashtray but he would not dispose of it...

    "I said "Forgive me, Sir" and plucked the cigar from his mouth. He looked so belligerant he could have devoured me, It was at that instant that I took the photo"

    This book offers a second, little known, photo of Churchill. One where Karsh describes him as 'smiling and benign'. It's a favourite of the Churchill family.

    Of the 100 most notable people of the century, named by the International Who's Who [2000], Karsh had photographed 51.

    Karsh has inscribed the book: "Inscribed for Steve Keyser, with the good wishes of Yousuf Karsh 1985"

    It's in perfect condition, accompanied by a pristine dust-jacket.

  • Winston Churchill Signed Document
    • A document signed by one of the most significant world leaders in 20th century history

    Winston Churchill (1874 –1965) was a politician and statesman who twice served as British Prime Minister, and is regarded as one of the most influential people in British history.

    Churchill led Britain to victory against Nazi Germany during WWII, with his regular speeches and broadcasts inspiring resistance against Adolf Hitler during the darkest days of the conflict.

    In 1963 he became the first person to be declared an honorary citizen of the United States, and following his death in 1965 he was granted a state funeral by Queen Elizabeth II to mark his service to the nation.

    In addition to his political career, Churchill was a renowned writer and was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1953.

    He was also an accomplished painter, and his paintings remain highly sought-after by collectors today.

    This document relates to the naturalization of a Russian immigrant and his family prior to WWI.

    Certificates of Naturalization could be issued to any 'alien' who had lived in Britain for more than five years.

    These applications were then signed off personally by the Secretary of State for the Home Office, a role to which Churchill was promoted in 1910.

    At just 35 years old, he was the second-youngest politician in British history to ever hold the position.

    The two-page document is dated September 16, 1911, and bears Churchill's signature on the second page.

    The document includes pencil annotations in the top right corners of both sheets, and has minor soiling.

    Also included is a collection of 15 original wartime press photographs featuring Winston Churchill on several occasions.

    The black and white photographs come in different sizes, and feature their original press captions pasted onto the rear.

    A superb collection of items relating to the 20th century's 'Greatest Briton'.

    William Wordsworth Autographed Poetry Quotation

    £3,995.00

    • A handwritten poetry inscription signed by one of history's most celebrated poets
    • Read our full newsletter about this item here 

    William Wordsworth (1770-1850) is one of history's most famous poets, and was a founder of the Romantic Age in English literature.

    In 1798 Wordsworth and his close friend, poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge, published their volume 'Lyrical Ballads', which inspired a generation of Romantic writers including John Keats, Lord Byron, Percy Bysshe Shelley and William Blake.

    Wordsworth served as Britain's Poet Laureate from 1843 until his death in 1850, and is most renowned for 'Daffodils', one of the world's best loved poems, which begins with the line "I wandered lonely as a cloud..."

    In this handwritten note, Wordsworth has inscribed four lines from the poem 'Old Age' by the 17th century poet and politician Edmund Waller:
    "The soul's dark cottage, batter'd and decay'd,
    Lets in new light through chinks that Time hath made:
    Stronger by weakness, wiser men become
    As they draw near to their eternal home."

    The note is signed "Wm Wordsworth", and is dated "6 July, 1839".

    It also bears the address of Wordsworth's Lake District home Rydal Mount, where he lived from 1813 until his death in 1850, and which today remains a public museum dedicated to his life and work.

    The page measures 17 x 20.3 cm (approx. 6.7" x 7.9"), and features a small tear to the upper left portion, along with two horizontal fold creases.

  • Walt Disney Signed Animation Cel

    Walt Disney Signed Animation Cel

    £11,995.00

    • An original production-used animation cel signed and inscribed by Walt Disney

    Walt Disney (1901 – 1966) was an animator, film producer and entrepreneur renowned for creating Mickey Mouse and establishing one of the world's most famous film studios.

    Disney is regarded as one of animation's greatest pioneers, and he produced landmark feature films such as Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Pinocchio, Dumbo and Fantasia.

    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 oversaw the creation of Disneyland, the world's most successful theme park, which to date has attracted more than 650 million visitors.

    Today Walt Disney is regarded as one of the most significant and iconic cultural figures of the 20th century. 

    This hand-painted gouache-on-celluloid animation cel was created for the film Melody Time, the 10th theatrically released animated feature produced by Walt Disney, released in May 1948. 

    It was the last anthology feature the studio produced, and featured seven short animations set to popular songs, in the same manner as the classic Fantasia.

    This animation cel and background is taken from the segment Once Upon a Wintertime, and depicts two ice skaters dancing together, along with a pair of rabbits dancing behind them.

    Once Upon a Wintertime's stylised backgrounds were created by Mary Blair, the highly influential Disney concept artist who worked on features such as Cinderella and Sleeping beauty, and who helped design the popular Disneyland ride It's a Small World.

    The mount of the image is signed and inscribed "To Ann Shelton, All Best Wishes, Walt Disney", and is dated circa 1951.

    Anne Shelton, OBE (1923 - 1994) was a British singer renowned for her work entertaining troops during WWII.

    Shelton performed for soldiers throughout the war, touring military bases and hosting the radio show Calling Malta which was broadcast throughout Europe.

    She later recorded several hit songs including ''Galway Bay' and 'Be Mine', which were also popular in the U.S and led to her touring America in 1951.

    It's believed that Shelton acquired this animation cel as a gift from Walt Disney during that tour.

    Disney's inscription and signature are signed in pencil. The image has been mounted, framed and glazed to an overall size of 39.3 x 43.7cm (approx. 15.4" x 17.2").

    • Learn more about this piece here 

    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 vintage black & white photograph features Walt Disney seated next to a large dog, and is signed and inscribed ""To Andy, All Best, Walt".

    The photograph was inscribed to Andy Engman (1911 – 2004), a renowned animator who worked for Walt Disney Studios in Burbank, California from 1937 until 1971.

    He started his career as an uncredited 'In-Betweener' animator on Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, and later worked on Donald Duck and Goofy shorts, as well as features such as Fantasia and Pinocchio, before moving into management at the studio.

    The photograph is signed in black ink. The photo itself measures a vast 33 x 26.7cm (13" x 10.5") and is mounted to an overall size of 50.6 x 40.5cm (approx. 20" x 16").

    The first page, dedicated to "Helen", is signed by three of the group: "love from The Beatles, Paul McCartney xxx"; "love from George Harrison xxxx"; "John Lennon xxx". Ringo Starr's name is handwritten at the bottom of the page, though not by his hand (possibly written by Paul McCartney).

    • You can find out more about this item here 

    Steve McQueen (1930-1980) is among the most iconic actors of his generation. He brought a detached cool presence in a swathe of wildly popular roles, including Bullitt, The Great Escape and The Thomas Crowne Affair.

    McQueen dates this cheque December 12, 1958. He got his breakout role in September that year, starring as Josh Randall in TV western Wanted: Dead or Alive (1958-1961).

    The payee is Broadway Hollywood, a Los Angeles department store, while the sum is $12.42. That’s just over $100 in today’s money. Perhaps McQueen was treating himself to celebrate his recent success. It's housed in a large and visually impressive 22 x 33 inch frame, complete with barbed wire and a mounted photograph of McQueen. 

    McQueen’s autograph is unusually rare for an actor of his stature, as he hated signing for fans. The few signatures in circulation are typically found on cheques. 

    N.B The cheque can easily be removed from its frame should you wish to present it in an alternate fashion.

    Stan Laurel (1890-1965) is one half of legendary comedy duo Laurel & Hardy, who were extremely popular from the 1920s to the 1940s, and featured in over 100 films. Silly, slender Laurel and rotund, pompous Hardy captured the hearts of millions through their original, slapstick comedy.

    This is a typed letter from Stan Laurel to cable television news anchorman, Glen Laxton, dated June 9, 1958. The letter, which features some hinges and archive folding, measures 11.8” x 8.4” and is accompanied by its original envelope which measures 6.75” x 3.75”

    Laxton first contacted Laurel at the age of 15 offering his support following Oliver Hardy’s death. Laurel answered almost immediately and Laxton claims that since then, he received over 50 letters from the comedian. Click here to read an interview with Glen Laxton regarding his correspondence with Laurel.

    This typed letter, written just 8 months after the death of Oliver Hardy reads:

    Dear Glenn:-

    Thanks yours 4th.inst.

    My start in Show Bus. was due to the fact, that I was born of a Theatrical Family, so I just grew up in the profession & followed my Father's footsteps. No, I never appeared in a Circus, altho my Father owned at one time in England, and also operated 6 legitimate theatres, beside authoring & producing several Dramatic shows in which he appeared with my Mother - my Brothers & Sister too were in the business. I came to this Country in 1910 in a Vaudeville show with Charlie Chaplin, it was a troupe called Fred Karno's London Comedians, we had a repertoire of sketches, the most well known was titled "A Night in An English Music Hall".

    Yes, Babe had a nice Tenor voice, he used to be a Boy Tenor in Minstrel Shows - Quartettes Etc. that deep voice you mention in "Way Out West" was not mine, a colored fellow sang while I just 'mouthed' the lyrics for comedy effect. I do'nt think seperate recordings were ever recorded of that particular number.

    The TV reception is much better at the new place, we can get all 7 channels. Well, think this covers your questions, so bye for now.

    Regards & best wishes Glenn.

    Sincerely:- Stan Laurel

    The Sex Pistols formed in London in 1975 and originally featured Johnny Rotten, Steve Jones, Paul Cook and Glen Matlock. Sid Vicious replaced Matlock in 1977. Their hugely influential debut album (Never Mind the Bollocks, Here's the Sex Pistols) set the tone for the punk explosion.

    In spite of their success, the Sex Pistols broke up lss than a year later, following a disastrous US tour. Later that year, bassist Sid Vicious was arrested in New York for the murder of his girlfriend Nancy Spungen. He died of a heroin overdose in 1979.  

    This 10 x 6 inch full page advert for the Sex Pistols’ single Pretty Vacant is from a July 9, 1977 edition of the New Musical Express (NME). The full band has signed (Johnny Rotten, Steve Jones, Paul Cook and Sid Vicious).

    The Sex Pistols only existed in their classic line-up for less than a year, making complete sets of signatures profoundly rare. This example could only have been signed in a seven month window between July 1977 and January 1978, when the band broke up. Cook has inscribed the page “At Virgin”, suggesting it may have been signed at the record label’s offices./

  • President George Washington Autographed Lottery Ticket

    President George Washington Autographed Lottery Ticket

    £15,000.00

    President George Washington Autographed Lottery Ticket


    • Rare Mountain Road Lottery ticket signed by the young Colonel George Washington
    • One of only 25 known to exist
    • Excellent condition compared to many existing examples

    George Washington (1732-1799) was the first President of the United States and a respected leader who helped steer the course of history during the American Revolutionary War. He is looked upon fondly by Americans as one of the great Founding Fathers.

    At the time of signing, he had recently married Martha and moved with her to Mount Vernon near Alexandria, Virginia. Here, he became one of the richest men in Virginia, living the life of planter and politician.

    He expanded the Mount Vernon estate to an impressive size and began to show more interest in politics, as he presented the Virginia Assembly with legislation to the importation of goods from Great Britain.

    During this time, he was also an active leader of the Virginia social elite, inviting some of the most prominent figures to his estate. He lived the life of an aristocrat, enjoying fox hunting and dances, as well as the theatre, racing and cock fights.

    It is likely that his dislike of British rule began with the Mountain Road Lottery, as during preparations, the British banned all lotteries and his plans were drastically altered.

    Description

    This partially-printed page measures 2 7/8" x 1 3/8" and is in fine condition, with some light staining to the top and lower borders. The 1768 Mountain Road lottery ticket reads:

    1768. This Ticket [No. 173] shall entitle the Possessor to whatever Prize may happen to be drawn against it's [sic] Number in the Mountain Road Lottery

    The document is signed in brown/black ink, Go. Washington. Washington's autograph is particularly fine and demonstrates his flourishing, expressive penmanship.

    A fine filigree-style border design surrounds the text. Its intricate nature was possibly an attempt to avoid forgeries.

    History

    In 1768, a lottery was organised to fund road works in the area of Mountain Road. Improvements were needed in order to access the hot springs of Bath County, reputed to have healing properties. Washington acted as manager of the lottery. His signature on the tickets added credibility to the venture.

    However, the lottery was never completed, as the British banned all lotteries just as tickets were selling. Perhaps this is the very point at which Washington's dislike of British rule began.

    Rarity

    As Washington died over 200 years ago, it can be difficult to find examples of his signature that remain in good condition.

    Being the first President of the United States, and a very popular figure from American history, Washington memorabilia is much sought after by both museums and private collectors. The combination of the lack of good quality Washington memorabilia and the high demand for it makes his signature very rare.

    Comparables

    In 2009, a letter in which Washington argues in support of the adoption of the proposed new Constitution sold for $3,218,500. Another handwritten letter by the Founding Father sold for $834,500 back in 2009.

    As well as handwritten letters, examples of the President's autograph can also sell for significant sums. In 2010, Paul Fraser Collectibles sold an accounts document signed by Washington for £29,950.

    This is a rare opportunity to own a fine example of the first President of the United States' signature

    Pierre Auguste Renoir handwritten note

    £5,950.00

    • A rare handwritten note from French Impressionist painter Pierre-Auguste Renoir

    Pierre-Auguste Renoir (1841-1919) was a French artist and leading painter in the development of Impressionism. Today, he is considered among the finest Impressionists and his work continues to sell for outstanding sums at auction. 

    Renoir began work as a painter in a porcelain factory in 1854. In 1862, he entered the studio of Gleyre where he formed lasting friendships with Monet, Sisley and Bazille.

    Renoir's art has instant appeal and the artist freely communicated the joy he took in them. He was once quoted as saying, "Why shouldn't art be pretty? There are enough unpleasant things in the world."

    This is a 4.25 x 5.5 inch handwritten note from Pierre-Auguste Renoir. The artist has signed at the bottom.

    The text is addressed to Maurice Gangnat, a well known Parisian collector and a good friend of Renoir's. Gangnat sat for a Renoir portrait in 1916.

    It reads (in translation): "Dear Mister Gangnat, I know you have the obligation of taking care of the apartment located 14 Blvd Malesherbes.

    "Could you please wait for a second letter, which should arrive soon after the present one, before taking action."

    The condition is excellent, the writing bold and the paper entirely free from blemishes.

  • Paul Signac Autograph Manuscript

    Paul Fraser Collectibles

    Paul Signac four pages of sketches

    £8,950.00

    • A fascinating four-sided, two-page manuscript of sketches by one of the most significant French artists of the 20th century, Paul Signac
    • Find out more about this piece here 

    Paul Signac (1863-1935) was a French Neo-Impressionist painter who developed the style of Pointilism along with George Seurat.

    Signac worked alongside many of the greatest artists of the era, including Claude Monet, Henri Matisse, Camille Pissarro and Odilon Redon, and shared a close friendship with Vincent van Gough.

    In 1884 Signac was one of the four founding members of the Société des Artistes Indépendants, an association which hosted major exhibitions and set important artistic trends for more than three decades.

    He also wrote several important works on the theory of art, and throughout his life served as both an inspiration and a patron to younger artists.

    This four sided manuscript features a series of pencil drawings and sketches, along with lengthy annotations in French which offer an insight into Paul Signac's artistic process.

    The rough illustrations on page one of the manuscript include notes referring to colours and background scenery of a possible future work:

    "Opposite a white palace, with pink line, harmony in pink, with green blinds… Communal Palace.. retouching Gozzoli virgin fresco…blue background…"

    The second side features four individual sketches, with figures and religious imagery such as a virgin and an angel. These scenes are accompanied by notes, which read in part:

    "The small virgin in white,…right wall with chorus, landscape with sun, white, pink…a clown scene with the dog and cat under the bed...the chapel of St. Martin…"

    The third side includes a lengthy annotation which reads in part "...the dry aspect that the murals research and the shapes can achieve…", along with a quick line sketch which is developed more fully on the fourth page.

    This second version of the sketch depicts a small cottage on a shoreline, with a large cliff face rising up behind it.

    Signac had a love of sailing, spending many summers throughout his life exploring the French coast, and the shorelines in the South of France – perhaps including this very scene - were amongst his most popular subjects.

  • Frank James Signed Letter

    Outlaw Frank James handwritten letter

    £9,500.00

    • A touching handwritten love letter by one of the most legendary outlaws of the Old West, Frank James
    • Find out more about this item here 

    Frank James (1843 – 1915) was a U.S Civil War Confederate guerrilla and notorious Old West outlaw.

    Together with his younger brother Jesse James, he helped established the James-Younger Gang, which robbed banks, trains, and stagecoaches throughout the southern states.

    The gang cultivated a reputation as folk heroes, with help from the editor of the Kansas City Times, who published Jesse James' letters and proclaimed him to be a modern-day Robin Hood.

    The gang's spree of robberies and murder lasted from 1866 until 1876, when several members were killed or captured during a disastrous raid on the First National Bank of Northfield, Minnesota.

    Frank James retired from his life of crime soon after, but his brother Jesse struggled to adapt to normal life, and formed a new gang which continued to operate for several years.

    Following the murder of Jesse by fellow gang member Robert Ford in 1882, Frank James feared for his own life and surrendered to the authorities, stating:

    "I have been hunted for twenty-one years, have literally lived in the saddle, have never known a day of perfect peace. It was one long, anxious, inexorable, eternal vigil."

    He was tried for his roles in two robberies/murders in Missouri and Alabama, and was acquitted in both cases, before returning to Oklahoma to live with his family.

    For the next 30 years Frank James held a variety of jobs, including a shoe salesman, an AT&T telegraph operator and even a ticket taker in a burlesque theatre.

    He also gave public lectures on the Old West, invested in Buckskin Bill's Wild West Show, and gave tours of the James family farm, where he eventually passed away in 1915 at the age of 72.

    Frank James and Ann Ralston

    The story of how Frank James first met Ann Ralston remains somewhat of a mystery.

    She was the highly-educated daughter of a wealthy businessman, and was working as a teacher when she suddenly eloped with James in the summer of 1875.

    Her parents received a letter which read simply "Dear Mother: I am married and going West. Annie Reynolds", and were distraught at her disappearance.

    It wasn't until several months later that they discovered their new son-in-law was one of the country's most wanted men.

    In 1876 Ann's father arranged for a New York newspaper article about the marriage, to ensure his family was not linked to the criminal gang

    "The James brothers, who are, with the Younger boys, creating so much stir just now, have had a love scrape, or at least one of them has. But this love affair is different from all other love affairs. No one who knows anything of the career of the James brothers would expect them to woo, win and marry like other people...

    "Mr. Ralston has had no connection or communication with the train robbers whatever. His daughter he has not seen since she left home, a year and one month ago.

    "If she is alive she will not write home, lest her letters should guide the officers to her husband's retreat. If she was dead Frank James would have notified her parents. So they can only rest patiently in the uncertainty of perhaps seeing their daughter again."

    Ralston never returned home, but despite the dramatic nature of their courtship and Frank's life of crime, they maintained a happy and stable marriage.

    They had a son, Robert Franklin James, and following Frank's surrender and subsequent acquittal for murder in 1883, they remained together until his death in 1915.

    Ann Ralston James lived out the rest of her days on the James family farm, before passing away in 1944, and the couple's ashes were buried together at Hill Park Cemetery in Jackson County, Missouri.

    The letter

    The letter, dated July 7, 1883, was written by James to his wife whilst he was in jail in Gallatin, Missouri.

    James was awaiting trial for murder and robbery of the Rock Island Line train at Winston, Missouri, in which the train engineer William Westfall and a passenger Frank McMillan were killed.

    Having spent a year in custody, James' trial began on August 20, and lasted just three days, before the jury returned a resounding verdict of 'not guilty'.

    The tender love letter reveals James to be both highly romantic and highly literate.

    Although he lived much of his life as a violent outlaw, he had been raised as a preacher's son surrounded by books, and during his youth developed a love for the works of Shakespeare.

    James was said to always carry a book in his saddle bag, even when he was on the run from the law, and he shared this passion for literature with Ann throughout their 40-year marriage.

    Here's the text in full:

    My dear wife,

    Your dear letter of the 1st was handed to me not exceeding an hour ago. It arrived here on the third, at least it is as marked. Now I sent foreword .. in this manner. There are very few men in this world that care anything for their wives, that they naturally suppose that all men are alike.

    How badly they are deceived. If there is anything on this earth that is half as dear to me as my wife I have failed to find it. You are everything to me and the only living human being that has ever possessed my whole love, my entire confidence, the only one that ever will and I feel as that love and confidence will never be abused.

    I have lived as I think to see all my fondest hopes realised. Long years ago I hoped and prayed that god would give me a true woman for my wife and i feel as if he has done so and anyone who has had a chance for happiness in this belief is more fortunate than the possessor of a thousand worlds.

    I am trying to pass the time reading and writing - I regret that I am deprived of your beauty and I am writing to suffer that I have no visitors as told you in last.

    Enclosed I send you an editorial from the trenchant pen of Rob M Yast that I think a grand effort.

    I suppose you remember the circumstances of Jarvis shooting Englehart. Yast talks of love and forgiveness & Jarvis has shown that he possessed both - as also has Yast. He’s shown himself to be a true friend of me and mine.

    Yast seems a man of most liberal whims. I dare say nine out of every ten would say that they would not forgive Jarvis for what he has done. Yet if it is the means of reclaiming the human I don't think he will ever regret it.

    Regarding mamma, this may not be interesting to you but it has been to me. I had a letter from ma today, she feels disappointed as you did not visit...

    I supposed it was useless to ask you again so will end further requests. I also had one further service. she also sends her kindness in regards to you and asked why you did not write. Please write her and let her know I will write Monday again.

    When you write, write me care of Sherriff - I don’t think he will read them.

    He has not opened any of my letters for a long time and if he should that would be better than not to get them so long after they’re written. I will kiss you both good night - write often your loving Ben/ f**k it is raining hard at this time.

    James autographs the letter as 'Ben', a protective alias that he used when writing to his loved ones.

    The single page letter, with text on both sides, measures 203 by 126mm, with fold creases and bleeding of ink in some sections.

    A remarkable piece of history, which offers a personal insight into one of the Old West's most legendary figures.
