by Poster Auctions International, Inc

May 15, 2016, 11:00 AM EST

New York, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $2,500 - $3,000

Description: Artist: GEORGES DORIVAL (1879-1968) Size: 46 1/4 x 61 3/4 in./117.4 x 156.8 cm Geo Dorival, Paris In the three known posters that Dorival created for the early Paris Air Shows, he always included the Grand Palais, above whose earthbound grandeur the event transpired, and an array of aircraft. However, after the airborne eddy of flying machines he displayed in his design for the third air show (see PAI-XXXVIII, 20A), Dorival scaled things back considerably. For this fifth air meet, the foreground is dominated by a single Blériot with an airship tucked neatly into the background of this moody design.

Condition Report: B-/ Restored tears & losses, largely in bottom text area.

*BAC - Sud Aviation Concorde.

by Dominic Winter Auctions

May 13, 2016, 10:00 AM BST

Near Cirencester, United Kingdom

Estimated Price: £700 - £1,000

Description: *BAC - Sud Aviation Concorde. Airborne Weather Radar System, manufactured by EKCO Avionics as used on the Concorde prototype, with stores reference plate serial no. 66 267 00600, 15cm high x 15cm wide x 38cm deep By 1966 EKCO had embarked on what was to prove their last major civil development, the E390 system, being specifically designed to meet the challenge of producing weather radar for Concorde. The unique Concorde operational requirement meant that EKCO had to overcome many new problems. Of the notable challenges, one of which was that the radar signal being emitted and returned had to electronically compensated whenever the droop snoot visor was operated since the refraction angle changed. The second problem was that due to the heat within the nose, conventional soft solder could not be used for soldering connections etc, therefore a high temperature solder had to be developed. With the speed of Concorde, the conventional maximum range of 180 miles was deemed inadequate and therefore a special 'pencil beam' with a 360 mile also had to developed. Whille EKCO had always ensured duplication within its equipment, Concorde took this to new extremes whereby there were completely separate operating systems, literally everything was duplicated. (1)

Exceptional 1938 Dated Polish Eagle Radom VIS-35 Semi-Automatic Pistol Rig with Holster, Two Extra Magazines and Documentation

by Rock Island Auction Company

May 1, 2016, 9:00 AM CST

Rock Island, IL, USA

Estimated Price: $4,500 - $6,500

Description: Exceptional 1938 Dated Polish Eagle Radom VIS-35 Semi-Automatic Pistol Rig with Holster, Two Extra Magazines and Documentation This is an exceptional example of a scarce group/type 1 Polish Eagle Radom VIS-35 pistol with original calvary holster and two spare magazines. This exceptional pistol included a notarized document from the consignor that states "this pistol was given to his uncle (Col. Fredrick Drake) by the Polish Ambassador in London in May of 1945, in appreciation for the assistance that his uncle had rendered to the Polish Airborne troops". He goes on to say that the only time he ever saw this pistol was when his uncle (Col. Drake) took it out after the war to clean and oil the gun. As noted this is one of the rare group or type 1 Polish VIS-35 pistol that has the early slide markings as manufactured in 1938. After the fall of Poland in 1939, the Polish Radom pistols became a secondary issue weapon for the German Army and was used widely throughout WWII. The left side of the slide is correctly marked in three blocks with "F.B. RADOM/1939r" followed by the "Polish Eagle" and "VIS-wz.35/pat. Nr.15567". The serial number (16663) is located on the right side of the frame above the trigger. There are several Polish proof and inspection marks on both sides of the trigger guard bow as well as the left side of the slide. This pre-war pistol that has the correct "three levers"; decocking lever, slide stop and takedown lever on the left side of the slide and frame, with the correct stock slot milled into the rear grip strap. The grips have "VIS" molded into the right grip and "FB" into the left. Complete with an original Polish Eagle VIS leather holster that includes two extra magazines inside the holster, the very rare brass cleaning rod that also has a Polish circled S-2 proof and the rare leather shoulder strap. The back of the holster is fitted with a single belt loop and two "D" rings for a shoulder strap. The inside of the flap is ink stamped with the large (partially visible) Polish Eagle proof. All three of the magazine included with this rig, correctly have the double pinned magazine base with the small Polish factory proofs on the front edge, (either a circled G-2 or S-2 proof). Manufacturer: Radom Model: Vis 35 BBL: 4 5/8 inch round Stock: Gauge: 9 mm Luger Finish: blue Grips: black checkered plastic Serial Number: 16663 Class: Curio & Relic Handgun Condition: Excellent with 97% plus of the original blue finish overall with only minor edge and high spot wear with a small spot of blue loss on the upper front grip strap and on the lower edge of the slide directly under the safety lever. The grips are also in excellent condition. Mechanically excellent. The holster is also in fine condition with nice medium brown color overall with tight stitching showing minor scuffing and handling marks on the front flap with fading visible on the tab. The extra magazines are both excellent. An exceptional, documented Polish Eagle VIS-35 pistol rig that would be difficult to improve upon!

Maxime OLD 1910-1991 Bureau de direction - 1970-1971

by Artcurial

May 24, 2016, 7:00 PM CET

Paris, France

Estimated Price: €20,000 - €25,000

Description: Maxime OLD 1910-1991 Bureau de direction - 1970-1971 De forme cintrée, à caisson entièrement laqué de laque nuagée verte, ouvrant par deux blocs de deux tiroirs à prise de tirage en métal doré. Support de plateau et piétement en forme de V incurvé, recouverts d'une feuille d'aluminium anodisé et d'un placage de palissandre sur la tranche; Plateau en dalle de verre fumé à la forme. 75,5 x 241 x 93,5 cm Provenance: Bureau parisien du Port Autonome de Marseille, rue Cognacq-Jay, Paris. Bibliographie: Yves Badetz, Maxime Old, Éditions Norma, Paris, 2000, notre modèle reproduit et référencé p.277. A curved-shaped, lacquered wood desk by Maxime Old, base and tray support covered with anodized aluminium, smoked glass top; 29.72 x 94.88 x 36.81 in. Lot composé de matériaux organiques en provenance d'espèces en voie de disparition, des restrictions quant à l'importation ou l'exportation peuvent s'appliquer ou un certificat CITES peut être nécessaire. Import or Export restrictions may apply or a CITES Licence might be needed as this lot contains organic material from endangered species. Le nom de Maxime Old est attaché au style français des années quarante et cinquante. Issu d'une famille d'ébénistes, il suit une formation classique à l'école Boulle puis se perfectionne dans les ateliers de Jacques-Émile Ruhlmann. Il participe régulièrement au Salon des artistes décorateurs, réalise les décors d'une clientèle prestigieuse mais aussi d'institutions, de paquebots, d'ambassades françaises. Le décor des bureaux parisiens du Port autonome de Marseille réalisé en 1971, et resté en place jusqu'à ce jour, se démarque des réalisations de Maxime Old des décennies précédentes. Formes épurées, jeux de lignes courbes, feuilles d'aluminium anodisé, verre, couleurs pop, le décorateur a su capter l'esprit et le goût du début des années 70. Une époque marquée par la fascination pour le futur, la science, les technologies nouvelles et la conquête de l'espace. En témoigne le bureau du président pièces ovoïde aux murs gainés de panneaux de cuir avec son bureau ovale ( lot 140 et son meuble bar-bibliothèque cintré (lot 145). On remarquera également dans la salle du conseil aux boiseries de palissandre la table de conférence de plus de sept mètres de long ( lots 146 à 148) avec son piétement architecturé fait de courbes et de contre courbes en aluminium anodisé. Maxime Old complète son décor avec les sièges Airborne en métal chromé et lainage vert acidulé (lots 149 à 151) et les luminaires Fontana Arte en vogue à l'époque ( lots 152 à 156). En 1971, lorsque Maxime Old réalise le décor des bureaux parisiens du Port autonome de Marseille, la plupart des décorateurs de sa génération qui dominaient les salons de l'entre-deux-guerres n'exercent plus. Maxime Old signe ici l'un de ses derniers ensembles. On trouve intacte sa précision du dessin, la perfection d'exécution de son mobilier, son sens de l'innovation ainsi qu'une disposition remarquable à traduire avec raffinement l'esprit futuriste de ce début des années 70.

DU MAURIER DAPHNE: (1907-1989) British Author. An amusing co

by International Autograph Auctions

May 7, 2016, 12:00 PM GMT

Nottingham, United Kingdom

Estimated Price: £200 - £300

Description: DU MAURIER DAPHNE: (1907-1989) British Author. An amusing conclusion of an A.L.S., Daphne, six pages (numbered 4, 5 and 6 to the head of the recto of each sheet), 8vo, n.p., n.d. (1930s), to [Foy Quiller-Couch]. In a social letter to her friend Du Maurier writes of an event which she attended, ‘with her were those Lord and Lady Weymouth….I’m afraid they are a dreadful set. Those are the sort of people one would gladly see guillotined. It was dreadful to see old bishops and quiet worthy general’s wives being elbowed out of the way. I shall remember the haggard harsh-faced Lady Stanley for a long time….she had that dreadful loud voice, and was bristling with tiaras; she was probably drunk’ and also sends news of being introduced to the married quarters occupied by forty different women, ‘For the first time I thanked God for Alexandria, as I was able to ask them all if they wanted to go, and it took about 5 minutes discussing it. My first start off was rather typical and unfortunate. I lost my way, and instead of getting to the married quarters, found myself in the heart of the mens barracks, where one isn’t meant to go, and had to run the gauntlet while chaps at the window cat called and whistled….of course the poor things didn’t know who I was, but mistook me for a lady of the town, and of course the appalling thing is that when I give prizes away at the sports this summer, some of them will perhaps recognise me, and our mutual embarassment will be agony!! Can you come up instead and pretend to be me? I obviously can’t appear!’ Du Maurier also writes of her eldest daughter who had been to London on a day trip with a nurse to visit family in Hampstead, remarking ‘The nurse was prostrate with fatigue at the end of the day, but the child apparently was as fresh as she had been at the beginning! She is an alarming child; as she was met by Angela Halliday in a small sports car instead of by mummy in the Hillman with the grey hood, she at once turned to the nurse and said “That’s not Granny’s car – where’s Granny’s car?“ She had seen the Hillman once, in February! My one hope is that she will be a wizard with an engine, and we can shut her up for hours with one, in the years long years to come! The Guardsman [her husband, Frederick Browning] is despondent, and says all his worst characteristics are appearing in his child!’. Some light age wear and minor staining to the final page, only very slightly affecting a few words of text, otherwise VG Foy Quiller-Couch-daughter of British writer Arthur Quiller-Couch (1863-1944), and a life-long friend of Du Maurier. Indeed, Du Maurier was accompanied by Foy Quiller-Couch when she became inspired with the storyline for her novel Jamaica Inn. In 1930 the two ladies were staying at Jamaica Inn and went riding on Bodmin Moor. They became lost in bad weather conditions and apparently sheltered for some time in a derelict cottage on the moor but were eventually led back to Jamaica Inn by their horses. Frederick Browning (1896-1965) British Lieutenant General of World War II, remembered for his important role with the First Allied Airborne Army during Operation Market Garden. Husband of Du Maurier from 1932. Tessa Browning (1933- ) Daughter and eldest child of Du Maurier and Browning. Her second husband is David Montgomery (1928- ) 2nd Viscount Montgomery of Alamein.

DU MAURIER DAPHNE: (1907-1989) British Author. Large portion

by International Autograph Auctions

May 7, 2016, 12:00 PM GMT

Nottingham, United Kingdom

Estimated Price: £300 - £400

Description: DU MAURIER DAPHNE: (1907-1989) British Author. Large portion of an A.L.S., Daphne, twelve pages, (missing pages four and five), 8vo, 13 Rue Jessop, (although on the printed stationery of the 2nd Battalion Grenadier Guards, Mustapha Barracks, Alexandria), 29th December 1936, to Foy (Quiller-Couch). Du Maurier announces ‘The socks are on my feet. The holly is at the mast-head of our galleon on the mantelpiece. The calendar is above the Guardsman’s [her husband, Frederick Browning] desk….For all these things we send love and thanks’ and writes of their ‘very pleasant’ Christmas, ‘We were decked with Egyptian holly (an evergreen with scarlet berries, most effective) a bunch of mistletoe adorned the door, we had a real Christmas tree, and were given two turkeys! These last arrived three weeks before the feast, alive, and we were obliged to keep them in the strip of path behind the house and feed them until the day of execution. I don’t think Mother would have approved, but what else could we do? We had a fine dinner, puds and pies complete, with the nice Prescotts in to help us eat it and pull crackers, and the Colonel of the Irish Guards and wife from Cairo. Boxing Day struck the usual ant-climax’. Du Maurier also playfully reflects on old age, following an illness suffered by her husband which she feels will recur throughout his life, ‘in retirement at Fowey the old Colonel will be seen very red in the face on bended sticks being helped along….and everyone flying into shops at his approach. Miss Quiller-Couch in an East wind, bowed beneath scarlet umbrella, will have the same effect on the populace. I, as an elderly lady, will be milder of temper but possibly more embarrassing to meet than either of you, as a touch of senile decay will have affected me, and I shall have no control over my conversation. I shall stop total strangers in the street, and enquire their age.’ The letter continues ‘The poor Guardsman getting very doleful at my departure….I leave Port Said on January 16th’ and concludes with an amusing anecdote, ‘To finish up, here is a story for Father. We dined the other night at the Murray Grahams (I have kept the Xmas card!) after dinner our hostess sat down and played to us, with the usual deep breathings, swaying from side to side, and rolling of the eyes. When she had finished she rose with dazzling smile to dead silence. She turned to the Guardsman “And how did you like that?“ “Not very much, quite frankly“, replied the Guardsman, “I’m not very keen on classical music I’m afraid. Now, if you’d play something with a tune in it…“ Mrs. Graham smiled pityingly, and faced the rest of her little audience. No one else spoke. And then from the back came the dry voice of a certain Dr. Gilmore. “I’ve decided my new hobby“ said he “And what is that, Doctor, piano-playing?“ enquired Mrs. Graham, with a renewal of dazzling smile. “No, the bag pipes“ he said. There was an awful pause and then a rush of conversation, and everyone began talking of something else. The piano was closed and we had no more music….We have not seen Mrs. Graham since.’ Du Maurier also writes a postscript expressing her distress at having just heard of General Poole’s death and also enquiring of other mutual acquaintances. Some extremely light, very minor age wear, otherwise VG Foy Quiller-Couch-daughter of British writer Arthur Quiller-Couch (1863-1944), and a life-long friend of Du Maurier. Indeed, Du Maurier was accompanied by Foy Quiller-Couch when she became inspired with the storyline for her novel Jamaica Inn. In 1930 the two ladies were staying at Jamaica Inn and went riding on Bodmin Moor. They became lost in bad weather conditions and apparently sheltered for some time in a derelict cottage on the moor but were eventually led back to Jamaica Inn by their horses. Frederick Browning (1896-1965) British Lieutenant General of World War II, remembered for his important role with the First Allied Airborne Army during Operation Market Garden. Husband of Du Maurier from 1932.
