Our EXTRA INK! 2020 catalogue features signed or Inscribed books, ephemera, and correspondence. The 24 items herein include the signatures of a diverse array of distinguished individuals. There are soldiers and statesmen, historians and novelists, artists and astronauts, the “First Lady of the World” and a queen of speculative fiction. Each item features at least one autograph signature, sometimes more than one signature, and often more than just a signature – ranging from inscriptions to correspondence, and on printed media ranging from books to photographs to maps.
Our Images from the Archives catalogue features 125 original press photographs of Churchill spanning 1910-1962, from before the First World War through his final years.
This catalogue features 40 items, all of them signed or inscribed. The items in which you will find these signatures are nearly as diverse as the signers. This catalogue includes books, correspondence, and ephemera, the latter ranging from dinner menus to contract negotiations to encaenia programmes. The commonality among the diverse items in our new catalogue is the “extra ink” – the indelible mark of a human hand beyond what was merely printed or typed. Each item features at least one autograph signature, sometimes more than just one signature, and often more than just a signature – ranging from inscriptions to hand-corrections to holograph letters.
