Marie Antoinette Manuscript DS in French

Manuscript DS in French, signed “Antoinette,” one page, 7.5 x 10, July 1779. Marie Antoinette adjudicates a real estate agreement. In part (translated): “Price of the acquisition of M. Giac on M. Chateaugiron—290,000. Schedule of Payments: Before the end of January 1774, 6 months—90,000. During the year 1774—18 months—100,000. In the first 3 months 1779—21 months—100,000. Total: 290,000. M. Giac also promised half of the salary until the payment of the 90,000. That is to say, for 6 months this object is valued at 4,000. M. Bertier has offered the same arrangements. M. Giac deserves money (immediately available) which is indispensable to him to satisfy the arrangement. M. Bertier offered him some, while deducting the interest. The deduction of this interest would increase the price of the charge by 18,900. M. Bertier, little preoccupied with money matters asks no better to satisfy. M. Giac, not wanting to go against the outline which the Queen’s letter provides, has honored M. Seulray. Decision of July 1779. Her majesty is asked to decide if she will permit M. Bertier to give M. Giac 294,000 (immediately available) without deducting interest.” In the left margin, Marie Antoinette writes: “Mr. Berthier will make the same arrangements and schedule as Mr.Giac with Mr. Chateaugiron.” Attractively mounted, cloth-matted and framed with an engraved portrait to an overall size of 22.5 x 18.5. In fine condition, with intersecting folds (one vertical fold passing through a single letter of the signature), scattered creases, and a bit of light soiling. An exceedingly desirable document from one of Europe’s most infamous royals. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA.

The Adventures of Mickey Mouse Signed by Walt Disney

Signed book: The Adventures of Mickey Mouse. First edition. Philadelphia: David MacKay Company, 1931. Hardcover, 5.5 x 7.75. Boldly signed and inscribed on the dedication page, “To ‘Billy,’ With Best Wishes, Walt Disney.” The boards are slightly bowed. The spine benefits from professional restoration, with the page immediately inside the front cover replaced with a copy by the book restoration expert. The corresponding page inside the back cover was also professionally replaced, creating a solid book, with some mirroring of the inscription and signature, otherwise fine condition. The restoration did not affect the page signed by Walt Disney nor any of the other interior pages. Despite these physical flaws and repairs, the signed page remains an exceptionally bright and colorful example. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Phil Sears.

Ludwig van Beethoven several curly strands

A relatively substantial collection of several curly strands of Beethoven’s hair, most appearing to be at least 3″ long. The hair has been kept in a slip of paper folded several times, captioned twice in pencil “Beethoven.” The inside bears a penciled draft for Beethoven’s funeral procession, most likely written by Anton Schindler or Stephan von Breuning, who made the preparations. Notes read in part (translated): “1. leader with staff. 2. 8 children 2 girls with candles 2 girls w/ flower baskets wherein flws. & fruit / 2 boys w/ candles 2 children with pitchforks, scythes, flowers…Soprano, Alto & Basso.” The hair is in fine condition and the folded slip in very good condition, with heavy intersecting folds and the writing a few shades light. The funeral at the Währing cemetery took place on March 29, with roughly 20,000 mourners in attendance. The eulogy was written by Franz Grillparzer and read by actor Heinrich Anschutz. Franz Xaver Stöber’s famous painting of the even shows a “leader with staff,” as described in these notes, followed by trombonists and singers, then by the children, and then by the catafalque bearing the composer’s casket.
