Description:

A (circa 1970s) visitors book page, clearly signed in ballpoint by David Niven.

 

Certification:

From a fantastic collection of visitors books dated between the mid 1960s to the mid 1980s, containing literally hundreds of celebrity signatures. The visitors books were collected by the staff and employees of Barclays Bank at Heathrow Airport during this period ; we assume this branch must have been located in or close to the VIP lounge. The autographs are almost all dated, many include the addresses of the signers and collectors notations / stamps by the original (bank employee) obtainers. There are also references to the bank and quality of service by some of the signers. By the very nature of the books the signatures really authenticate themselves and provide a fascinating insight and mix of famous British and American names of the period. High profile signers include ; Muhammad Ali / Robert De Niro / Jack Nicholson / Sid Vicious / Marlon Brando / Mick Jagger / Keith Moon / Sylvester Stallone / Roy Orbison / Thin Lizzy / Graham Hill etc etc. AFTAL Dealer No13 and UACC RD Memorabilia UK

A very good vintage circa 1949 autograph book page, clearly signed in ink by David Niven.

 

Certification:

From the extensive autograph collection of Edna Winter of London SE16. Thought to have been an obsessive collector and hoarder, Edna amassed a massive collection of Entertainment / Film / Political and Literary autographs during the 1940-50s. She kept a detailed diary of who / when and where she obtained her autographs from ; it would appear mostly by writing to theatres / home addresses and the major A-list London hotels of the period. It is unknown how she knew which celebrity was staying where and at what time, but almost all autographs (very usefully) have venues and dates included with them ; some are also dedicated to her. This is 23 Chester St W1 10th February 1949. AFTAL Dealer No13 and UACC RD Memorabilia UK COA.
