George S. Patton Signed Book From His Library

Signed book from Patton’s personal library: Indian Fights and Fighters by Cyrus Townsend Brady. Later printing. Garden City: Doubleday, 1923. Rebound hardcover, 5.25 x 7.5, 423 pages. Signed on the front cover in black ink, “G. S. Patton,” and on the spine, “Patton.” Patton also writes the title and author on the spine and front cover, “Indian Fights & Fighters, Brady.” Autographic condition: very good to fine, with the signature on the cover a few shades light. Book condition: G+/None. No other military leader wrote so frequently in his letters or diary what he was reading, and no leader’s library was so well documented since Napoleon’s. Patton’s library, which was almost entirely inherited by his son, Major General George Patton III, was given to West Point, with just a small portion of books, including this one, inherited by other descendants or friends.

Pre-Bidding is January 15 – January 21. Live Bidding begins at 3 pm ET on January 22.

Albert Einstein Postcard With Self-portrait

Unique ANS in German signed, “A Einstein” on the reverse of a 3.5 x 5.5 postcard picturing the Red Star Liner Belgenland, [near Jerusalem, c. February 5, 1923]. Einstein writes to Zionist leader Arthur Ruppin, in full (translated): “To my dear Mr. Ruppin, We are having unforgettable days in Palestine. With the sun shining, in cheerful company. Your wife is standing next to me and looking at what I am writing about her. She is counting the days until you come back.” Einstein’s writing is below an ANS by Ruppin’s wife, Hanna, which reads in full (translated): “Dear Arthur, A pleasant tour of the city. Included is a picture by Prof. Einstein.” On the front of the postcard, Einstein has added a delightful self-portrait above the image of the ship and signed it, “A. Einstein” below, together with a portrait, also in his hand, of “Frau Ruppin.” Above the drawings, he added, “Jerusalem,” and “Heiligenschein,” [halo], with an arrow pointing to his image. Einstein’s depiction of himself as a rotund, almost comical figure stands in stark contrast to the elegantly dressed “Frau Ruppin” with her stylish hat, shapely figure and umbrella. Light horizontal crease with a minor tear at left margin does not affect the drawings or Einstein’s note on the reverse, minor toned spot below the address line, otherwise fine condition.

Pre-Bidding is January 15 – January 21. Live Bidding begins at 3 pm ET on January 22.

Jerry Garcia Autograph Letter Signed

Extremely rare two-part ALS signed twice “Jerry.” First part is on two pages both sides, 5.25 x 8.5, no date but circa late May–early June 1982, and second part is on one page both sides, 8.5 x 11, Hotel Parker Meridien, New York letterhead, no date but postmarked June 22, 1982. Written to a woman he met at a NYC party in 1980, in full: “Thank you really for sending that postcard, I feel like it’s sort of our first ‘official’ communication somehow. I’ve been hoping we could get together ever since we first met at Al’s that winter nite so long ago (sigh)…However it seems as tho…(Hey! My pen stopped writing) I’ve been ninety degrees off or out of phase or something whenever it might have been possible to get to know you a little better. I hope it doesn’t seem like I’ve been avoiding you, although I admit I’ve kind of been waiting for the opportunity (that is, the ‘right’ opportunity) for us to meet in some kind of neutral context that would be comfortable and relaxed and free of any pressure. Of course it could be years before any such opportunity arises, so…this is just a long winded way of saying thank you for writing. Oh! also in spite of never having been alone with you, I somehow feel close to you and I’ve looked forward to and enjoyed those times, however brief, that we have been in the same general vicinity and spoken slightly (New York, Germany, Calif etc.) you know—so…

Pre-Bidding is January 15 – January 21. Live Bidding begins at 3 pm ET on January 22.

Wilbur Wright Oversized Signed Photograph

Breathtaking vintage matte-finish 11.75 x 15.75 photo of Wright breaking an altitude record in his Wright Flyer, affixed to a 15.5 x 19.25 mount, signed in the lower left in ink, “25 December 1908, Wilbur Wright.” Also signed in the lower right in ink by the photographer, Jules Garczynski. Irregular areas of fading and discoloration to ink, toning and adhesive remnants to borders of mount, and a crease to the upper left (passing from the mount’s edge to below the plane’s wing), otherwise very good condition.

On December 18, 1908, as the Wright brothers’ landmark year was coming to a close, Wilbur Wright soared to a height of 110 meters above Le Mans, France, setting an epic new altitude record. For his achievement, he was given the Aero Club de la Sarthe prize. This image beautifully captures that success, showing the Flyer soaring above the Auvours Camp, with a balloon marking 100 meters well below. Oversized original photos of the Wrights’ famous machine are incredibly scarce; with the addition of Wilbur’s elusive autograph, this is a truly exceptional piece. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA.

Pre-Bidding is January 15 – January 21. Live Bidding begins at 3 pm ET on January 22.
