    • A rare, unpublished and illustrated work by Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling
    • Find out more about this piece here 

    J.K Rowling (1965 -) is an English author, screenwriter, producer and philanthropist. She's the creator of the Harry Potter series of children's novels, which to date has sold a record 400 million copies worldwide.

    The seven best-selling books also spawned a series of blockbuster Hollywood movies, video games, several theme park attractions, and an empire of merchandise worth an estimated $25 billion.  

    Aside from her literary career, Rowling has also been praised for her philanthropic work, and has raised tens of millions for good causes including Comic Relief and her own children's charity Lumos.

    The document

    J.K Rowling's fascination with astrology can be seen throughout the Harry Potter series of books, in characters such as Professor of Divination Sybill Trelawney and Firenze the star-gazing centaur.

    Whilst writing her first novel, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, Rowling also produced highly detailed personal horoscopes for some of her friends.

    This horoscope was written for Roger Julian Tosswill, who Rowling first met along with his partner Kate Buchanan during ante natal classes.

    Rowling also wrote a similarly detailed horoscope for their newborn son Jack Buchanan, which we are able to offer for sale here.

    Tosswill is a Libra, born October 13, 1966 at 11.05pm, and the horoscope covers his personality traits, relationships, potential careers and compatibility with his partner.

    The close relationship Rowling shared with the family is evident throughout the horoscope.

    When comparing the couple, she writes: "I should say at the outset that these two horoscopes (Roger and Kate) could have come straight out of an astrological text-book, captioned 'compatible partners'."

    And in reference to young Jack Buchanan, she writes: "The words 'isn't he like his father?' are likely to be repeated with tiresome regularity throughout Jack's childhood."

    Throughout the 12 page document Rowling displays a strong knowledge of astrology, referencing texts such as the influential 15th century French work 'The Kalendar and Compost of Shepherds'.

    The strength and humour of her writing also clearly shines through, particularly during a passage in which she images the couple escaping from international terrorists, using hand grenades made from Coke cans and Semtex "weaselled out of a guard who was no match for his Machiavellian Mars".

    The 12-page folio document features Rowling's cover illustration in pen, ink and coloured pencil, mounted on a sheet of blue card.

    The horoscope is a double-sided typescript on yellow card, and the astrological chart is printed on white paper with annotations in Rowling's hand, laminated with a sheet of plastic.

    The entire document is hole-punched, and bound together with gold and silver ribbons.

    Two of the pages feature small tears around the hole punches, and the cover displays signs of wear around the edges.

    A unique document, written and illustrated by the world's most successful living author.

    • An incredibly rare unpublished work by J.K.Rowling
    • A personal Horoscope with a hand drawn natal chart for Jack David Buchanan, born 19 February 1994, 5.01 p.m.

    J.K Rowling (born 1965) is an English author, screenwriter, producer and philanthropist. She's the creator of the Harry Potter series of children's novels, which to date has sold a record 400 million copies worldwide.

    The seven best-selling books also spawned a series of blockbuster Hollywood movies, video games, several theme park attractions, and an empire of merchandise worth an estimated $25 billion.  

    Aside from her literary career, Rowling has also been praised for her philanthropic work, and has raised tens of millions for good causes including Comic Relief and her own children's charity Lumos.

    Unpublished illustrations and writings by J.K. Rowling are incredibly rare and offer a wonderful insight into the creative mind behind Harry Potter.

    This incredible piece of Rowling memorabilia provides a fascinating example of her prose.

    On white paper, with double-sided typescript on yellow card providing a detailed interpretative reading, including of the sun sign, ascendant, ruling planets, significant conjunctions and oppositions, and their effect on character, personal strengths, possible careers, emotional and erotic characteristics, and compatibility with other signs, and a cover illustration depicting the chart's key astrological symbols in pen, ink, and coloured pencil laid down on bright blue coloured card.

    Comprising 12 loose pages in a plastic folder. In excellent, mint condition.

    "Born the cusp of Aquarius and Pisces. He will enjoy school, perhaps be accident-prone, (like all Pisces) could be prone to alcoholism, and (perhaps like us all) may well fall in love with someone totally incompatible.

    The chart apparently suggests that the boy will have great literary talent ("...the planet of fantasy and imagination meets a sign frequently associated with bookishness...")

    Rowling wonders whether his "ability to weave a good yarn" could perhaps bring fame and fortune, before deciding that becoming a film director would better suit his talents.

    Apparently wishing for some small slice of fame for herself, J.K. Rowling wonders if the boy would perhaps at least mention her in his Oscar acceptance speech ("...This peculiar woman my mother knows predicted I would be standing before you today ... of course, my parents laughed at the time...") ...Human destiny may be deciphered by the planetary rays... (Professor Trelawny)

    It is possible to detect in this short piece some of the characteristics that were shortly to bring Rowling's prose such extraordinary success: a great and varied sense of humour, flights of fancy underpinned by an internal logic, and - of course - a mingling of the everyday world with the strange and magical.

    The horoscopes show Rowling to have a detailed technical knowledge of Western astrology.

    She is at ease explaining the significance of having one's Moon in the First House but peppers her interpretations with quotations and wryly amusing comparisons.

    In general the astrologers that she cites tend to be popular rather than academic.

    Rowling's knowledge of astrology has undoubtedly played into the Harry Potter books.

    Harry himself is a Leo (sharing his birthday with J.K. Rowling herself), whilst the meticulous worrier Hermione is naturally a Virgo.

    An important influence on Harry in the first book is Firenze the centaur, a star-gazer who helps and teaches him before his first encounter with Voldemort.

    Sybill Trelawney, Professor of Divination, makes an appearance in later books; she is considered by many a fraud (and is a fine satire of New Age fortune tellers) but her predictions frequently come true in unexpected ways.

    On a deeper level, an issue that goes to the heart of astrology is the apparent conflict between free will and fate, and this is one of the central themes of the Harry Potter series.

    Pete Doherty Autographed Original Blood Painting

    Pete Doherty Autographed Original Blood Painting

    For Sale: £15,000.00

    • Original self-portrait blood painting from musician Pete Doherty
    • Autographed by the singer in his own blood
    • Excellent provenance - Doherty sent this to a fan following a show

    Pete Doherty (1979-) is a notorious celebrity, famed for his high-profile relationship with Kate Moss and his addiction to crack cocaine and heroin. While a noted creative talent, regular court appearances and jail sentences have come to overshadow his musical and artistic pursuits.

    Doherty was one of the founders of the acclaimed The Libertines, and also founded Babyshambles.

    He published his journals, photography and poetry in 2007's The Books of Albion: The Collected Writings of Peter Doherty.

    Description

    Since 2007, Doherty's paintings have been made available to the public. Like his personal life, these paintings have caused controversy due to his use of human blood, mostly Doherty's own.

    This canvas is a new discovery, never before offered on the private market.

    This self-portrait shows Doherty smoking, wearing his trademark hat. The artist clearly understands his own iconography and deftly records his most identifiable image.

    A flurry of smudged pencil, pen and blood create a broken, textured effect. The mixed media piece features a number of novel techniques; splattered blood and dripping blood.

    A concentration of blood curves outwards from the eye, downwards in dripping, criss-crossing lines.

    Above the head, drawn across the hat, Doherty has included a syringe in blue pen. The highest level of detail is afforded to this depiction, inferring the item's importance. The level of detail also suggests that the item was drawn from observation, rather than memory. A blue rectangle, with the number 20, depicts a £20 bank note.

    The choice of a different media for the drawing of the syringe may suggest a separate phase of work on the painting. It may also depict two states of mind or two sets of concern of the artist; one which is the artist himself, and one which is his addiction.

    Provenance

    A fan approached the singer at a gig in Wigan, 2010, and cheekily asked how he could make some money. Doherty said he would create a blood painting and send him £20; the money never arrived but the painting was sent a week later (with a drawn £20 note). The canvas measures 32" x 32".

    The text "For Alistair, love Peter" features prominently over half the canvas. This personal note becomes part of the artwork as it is inscribed in blood.

    A London gallery recently held a sell-out show of Doherty's work, demonstrating how sought after these paintings are.

    Prices for the artworks varied from £2,500 for a signed print, to £50,000 for blood spattered canvasses. A painting created using both Doherty's and Amy Winehouse's blood recently sold for $56,000.

    Included in the sale price is a colour photograph of Pete Doherty measuring 11¾" x 8¼" signed by the man himself.

    This 11" x 7½" printed page features Scott's sweeping diagonal signature on the bottom left corner. The sheet is printed with the details of the Nuclear Test Ban Treaty, 1963, which was an important step in global diplomatic efforts to end the armaments race between nations.

    The treaty prohibited nuclear detonation tests in the atmosphere and underwater in an attempt to preserve the environment, though did allow for testing in underground facilities so long as debris stayed within the boundaries of the nation that was conducting the tests.

    The document is in very good condition, with only one tear to a corner, which does not interfere with the autograph or text.

    • Fantastic signed photograph from John and Jackie Kennedy in June 1962
    • Wonderful image depicting the President with his children, Caroline and John Jr
    • Given to the Kennedy family's nanny Maud Shaw for Christmas 1962

    John F. Kennedy was the President of the United States of America from 1961 until 1963 when he was tragically assassinated in Dallas, Texas. A charismatic leader, he is one of the most beloved presidents in US history, and his memorabilia is among the best selling of any former president.

    This 7½" x 9½" gelatin silver photo print shows President John F Kennedy with his children, Caroline and John Kennedy Jr, standing with Caroline's pony, Macaroni, on the terrace of The White House.

    Macaroni was a gift from Vice-President Lyndon Johnson, Kennedy's running mate for the 1960 election and President of the USA following Kennedy's death.

    This photograph was taken on 22nd June 1962. It is mounted and framed with a presentation inscription from Jackie Kennedy which is dated December 25, 1962. It reads:

    "For dear Miss Shaw - with love from us all - and the deepest appreciation as always".

    The autographs of Jackie Kennedy and John F. Kennedy have been signed in black ink. Caroline has added her autograph and some kisses. There is also an infant's scribble in ballpoint pen. Someone (probably Jackie) has noted that this scribble is from John Jr.

    This is a rare opportunity to own a photograph signed by all four Kennedy family members.

    In excellent condition, this photograph has impeccable provenance, originating from the collection of Maud Shaw, the Kennedy family nanny following Caroline's birth in 1957.

    An exceptional piece.

  • Charles Lindbergh signed photograph

    • 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.

    The Beatles and their music need no introduction. As a result of their all-encompassing impact on popular music and culture, memorabilia from the band is some of the most valuable on the market.

    A Hard Day's Night, released on July 10, 1964, was the Beatles' third studio album. Accompanying the band's film of the same name, it went straight to Number One in the UK charts and stayed there for 21 weeks, spending a total of 38 weeks in the Top 20.

    A Hard Day's Night saw the Beatles move away from rock n roll covers and towards their classic sound. It holds a special place with fans, as it is the only Beatles album where all the songs were written by both John Lennon and Paul McCartney. 

    According to Autograph Magazine's census, there are just 125 known UK-release album covers signed by all four members of the Beatles.

    Signed copies of Please Please Me and With The Beatles account for approximately 95 of the 125 known examples. 

    That takes the total down to just 30.

    There are only 5 known examples of Meet the Beatles, with one example selling for $115,000 in 2006.

    As for signed copies of A Hard Day's Night, only 8-10 are known to exist.

    This is one of them...

    The signatures are in blue pen, each inscribed below the corresponding band member's photograph.

    The item is in fine condition, with some light wear to the edges.

    The album cover is to be sold framed alongside a black and white photo of the group, with a certificate of authenticity and lifetime moneyback guarantee of authenticity. 

    This is a very rare opportunity to acquire one of the rarest pieces of Beatles memorabilia.
