  • 1840 Penny Black (GB) Plate 3 SUPERB four margin Tiny Envelope Contrary to Regulations
    Quick shop
    1840 Penny Black (GB) Plate 3 SUPERB four margin Tiny Envelope Contrary to Regulations. Tiny Envelope posted on Monday the 31st of August 1840 in Liverpool to Regents Park London. Penny Black Plate 3 placed on the bottom left of the entire Post Office regulations says the stamp must be on the top right corner. This envelope written by Edwin Atherstones to his daughter Mary Elizabeth who went on to publish and edit a distinguished book named "The Dramatic works of Edwin Atherstone". Edwin Atherstone was a poet but also supported his family by dealing in Art. He was born in Nottingham in 1788 and was one of 15 children. He is described by his daughter Mary as a man of most honourable noble mind and heart. Atherstone was friend to the great John Martin who has been referred to as the most popular painter of his day. Martin supplied art for Atherstones work such as the fall of the Nineveh of which is now part of the British Museum's collection and the famous poem "A Midsummers Day Dream". Atherstone was in the same literary circle as the likes of Charles Dickens, John Hunt and William Godwin (the father of Mary Shelley). Thus, subsequently their work was part of the Romantic Movement which marked an era of change for England. A stunning piece of philatelic history.

    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 any single 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. England's Geoff Hurst kicked the ball which bounced off the underside of the cross bar onto, or just over, the line.

Born in Yorkshire, he attended Rugby and Cambridge before becoming a Lieutenant in the 16th Hussars.

Inglehart and Winston F.C. Guest (America).

    Tyrrell-Martin had a colourful polo career: he captained the English polo team against America for the Westchester Cup at Hurlingham, a competition the United States have historically dominated and was invited to represent England at the Olympic Games in Berlin in 1936, but wasn't able to accept.

    Tyrrell-Martin was a member of the polo team that won the American Open Championship in 1939 and was temporarily suspended by the Hurlingham Club Polo Committee, which led to the Texas Rangers polo team withdrawing from the Hurlingham Champion Cup final in 1936.

    He and Edith moved to California in 1936 returning to England for only a few months a year thereafter; he spent much time travelling the world playing polo in countries such as: Austria, Hungary, Belgium, Argentina, Jamaica, East Africa and America. He and Babs led a glittering social life with many famous friends and connections.

    Admiral Horatio Lord Nelson Snuff Box

    £45,000.00

    • A remarkable piece once owned by the greatest figure in British naval history

    Admiral Horatio Lord Nelson (1758 – 1805) is one of the most celebrated figures in British history, best remembered for his heroic efforts during the Napoleonic wars.

    Nelson's career as a naval officer saw him lead the British fleet to several victories, during which he suffered injuries such as the loss of his right arm and the sight in his right eye.

    His most famous victory came in October 1805 at the Battle of Trafalgar, in which the Royal Navy decimated the combined fleets of the French and Spanish Navies.

    Prior to the battle, Nelson sent out the famous message "England expects that every man will do his duty". Tragically, he was shot by a French sharpshooter and died on board his ship the HMS Victory just hours after victory had been assured.

    His body was later returned to England where he was granted a state funeral, and numerous monuments were erected in his honour, including Nelson’s Column in Trafalgar Square, London.

    This tortoiseshell composition snuff box was originally owned by Lord Nelson, and features a miniature watercolour scene of the Amalfi coast on the top.

    The box was gifted by Nelson to his personal secretary George Unwin, during a dinner party in Sicily in late 1798 or early 1799 which was also attended by Emma, Lady Hamilton.

    Nelson had first met Hamilton in 1793 when he came to gather reinforcements against the French, and the pair were reunited in 1798 following Battle of the Nile.

    Having been severely injured, Nelson recuperated in Naples, during which time he was nursed back to health by Lady Emma and her elderly husband Sir William Hamilton.

    It was during this period that Nelson and Hamilton began their famous love affair, which lasted until Nelson's death at the Battle of Trafalgar.

    It seems highly possible that Nelson gave this gift to Unwin as a show of generosity, in an attempt to impress his future mistress over dinner.

    The snuff box is offered along with a manuscript letter by Unwin's son George, which reads in full:

    "My Father had either lost his own snuff box on going ashore or in some shop in Palermo and upon mentioning the circumstances at Lady Hamilton’s table where Lord Nelson was one of the party his Lordship handed over to him this identical box and desired him to keep it until he could get a better one."

    The box was later passed down to Unwin's own son George, then via his wife Anne Oxenham to her brother Rev. William Oxenham, and by descent through the family for several generations.

    A beautiful item from one of Britain’s most famous heroes, and perhaps a small piece of one of history's greatest love affairs.

    Admiral Lord Horatio Nelson Authentic Lock of Hair

    For Sale: £15,000.00

    Admiral Lord Horatio Nelson (1758-1805) was a British naval officer famous for his victories against the French during the Napoleonic Wars.

    Nelson was known for his superb leadership skills and somewhat unconventional strategies.

    Nelson was involved in battle almost constantly between 1793 until his death in 1805. During this time he lost the sight in his right eye at the Battle of Calvi in Corsica and lost his right arm at Santa Cruz in Tenerife.

    Admiral Lord Nelson is remembered as one of the greatest British war heroes in history. He died during the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805.

    This is a generous, fine, blonde lock of Lord Nelson's hair.

    The hair is housed in a beautifully carved, circular agate box decorated with a gold band. The box measures 4.5cm in diameter. A fragmentary enamel plaque attached to the lid of the box reads "N….05". The box is thought to date from between 1800 and 1810.

    This hair closely conforms to the other known examples of Nelson's hair and the box is similar in form to a locket which contained a lock of Nelson's hair that sold for £44,000 at auction in January, 2011. That locket also contained hair thought to have belonged to Lady Emma Hamilton who is known to have received Nelson's hair among other effects, after his death.

    This is a very rare opportunity to own a considerable lock of Lord Nelson's hair, contained neatly in a beautiful antique presentation box.

    Albert Einstein signed letter addressed to Corliss Lamont

    For Sale: £8,250

     

    Albert Einstein (1879-1955) was a German born theoretical physicist and Nobel Prize winner.

    A hand typed letter from Albert Einstein, on embossed headed paper 112, Mercer Street, Princeton, New Jersey, U.S.A., measuring approximately 8½" x 11".

    The letter, dated January 2, 1954, reads in full: "Dear Mr Lamont I thank you for sending me your excellent statement which I had, of course, already seen. Through your attitude you have rendered the country an important service. There is one point in your statement which I regretted. It is your declaration that you have never been a member of the Communist party. For party membership is a thing about which no citizen has any obligation to give an accounting for. Sincerely Yours Albert Einstein"

    Einstein has signed the bottom of the letter in black ink 'A. Einstein'.

    Corliss Lamont has typed his reply (Dated January 25, 1954) on the reverse of Einstein's letter, in full:

    Dear Dr Einstein Thank you very much for your kind note on January 2nd. You have a real point about my voluntary statement to Senator McCarthy, that I was not a member of the Communist Party. I have worried about this a great deal and I am not at all sure that I should have included that. I am preparing for publication a pamphlet on this whole subject, entitled Challenge to McCarthy. The heart of it consists of a re-write of the enclosed article that was published in The Nation in its special issue on civil liberties in December. Since I discuss the case of Dr Sadowitz and the whole matter of the Congressional inquisitions, I would like very much to include as one appendix of your excellent letter to Mr Frauenglass of May 16, 1953. Since this was published in the New York Times, I presume that you have no objection to me using it. However, I want to check with you specifically before going ahead. Sincerely yours, Corliss Lamont Given

    Einstein's links to Germany and Zionism, his socialist ideals, and his links to Communist figures, the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation kept a file on Einstein that grew to 1,427 pages.

    Corliss Lamont (March 28, 1902 – April 26, 1995), was a socialist philosopher, and advocate of various left-wing and civil liberties causes. As a part of his political activities he was the Chairman of National Council of American-Soviet Friendship starting from early 1940s.

    Archbishop Makarios (1913-1977) became Cyprus's first president after the British granted the island independence in 1959. He served three terms as president, surviving four assassination attempts and one coup.

    Before he became president, Makarios was deported from Britain due to his refusal to denounce the use of violence and his alleged support of EOKA, the National Organisation for Cypriot Combatants, guerrilla activists. Such accusations tainted his international reputation, but did not dissuade him from encouraging peaceful relations between the island's Greek and Turkish communities.

    This 3½" x 5" white card bears Makarios' signature: "F. Archbishop Makarios". The autograph is written in flowing red ink. Some very light toning to the document. In very good condition, crisp edged paper and clear signature.

    Bebe Daniels & Ben Lyon Autographed Photograph

    For Sale: £150.00

    Ben Lyon began (1901-1979) 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 during her career and, from the 1950s, worked on radio and television to much acclaim in England.

    This beautiful photograph shows the successful couple bathed in soft light. The Hollywood sheen of glamour is evident; 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 mounted, the photograph measures 6½" x 4½", without mounting. Both the signatures of Daniels and Lyon feature in the bottom portion of the photograph: "Our best wishes, Bebe Daniels, Ben Lyon".

    The photograph is in excellent condition, the autographs distinctly marked on the photograph's white border.
