Attributed to Wenceslaus Hollar - View showing The Battle of White Mountain, with the city of Prague beyond,

Lot 9: Attributed to Wenceslaus Hollar - View showing The Battle of White Mountain, with the city of Prague beyond,

by Dreweatts & Bloomsbury

July 24, 2014

London, United Kingdom

Estimated Price: £2,000 - £3,000

Description: Attributed to Wenceslaus Hollar - View showing The Battle of White Mountain, with the city of Prague beyond, pen and black ink on laid paper, inscribed Qunadoq, Malo, medetur medijs centre, 100 x 190 mm. (4 x 7 1/2 in), unframed. This finely detailed drawing was known to Hollar's biographer, the late Richard T. Godfrey, who identified the subject as The Battle of White Mountain. The battle took place outside Prague in 1620, and marked the end of the Bohemian period of the Thirty Years' War, and ultimately influenced the Czech lands for the following 300 years. Hollar would have been aged only 14 or 15 when the event took place, and the drawing may show an early stage in the development of Hollars' microcosmic approach to draughtsmanship.

Lot 21: General Model signed 14 x 9 cm Hoffmann photo

by Chaucer Covers & Auctions

July 25, 2014, 5:00 PM GMT

Folkestone, United Kingdom

Estimated Price: £600 - £800

Description: General Model signed 14 x 9 cm Hoffmann photo signed by Generaloberst Model. He was the best 3rd Reich defensive tactical commander. Otto Moritz Walter (Walther) Model (24 January 1891 - 21 April 1945) was a German general and later field marshal during World War II. He is noted for his defensive battles in the latter half of the war, mostly on the Eastern Front but also in the w - Estimate £ He has been called the Third Reich's best defensive tactical commander. Although he was a hard-driving, aggressive panzer commander early in the war, Model became best known as a practitioner of defensive warfare. His success at the head of the 9th army in the defensive battles of 1941-1942 determined his future career path. Model first came to Hitler's attention before World War II, but their relationship did not become especially close until 1942. His tenacious style of fighting and aggressive personality won him plaudits from Hitler, who considered him one of his best field commanders and repeatedly tasked him with retrieving desperate situations. However, their relationship had broken down by the end of the war after Model was defeated at the Battle of the Bulge. Good condition.

250 Pilots signed Men of the Battle of Britain hard backed book

Lot 49: 250 Pilots signed Men of the Battle of Britain hard backed book

by Chaucer Covers & Auctions

July 25, 2014, 5:00 PM GMT

Folkestone, United Kingdom

Estimated Price: £4,000 - £6,000

Description: Men of the Battle of Britain hard backed book signed by 250 BOB pilots and aces. 80 are signed on the book pages and 170 on labels affixed throughout the book. Incredible collection of the brave pilots who save Britain from Invasion in 1941.Also inscribed by the author Ken Wynn. This is why the book is a unique one-off. The book was specifically published in 1990 to coincide with the historic 50th Anniversary of the Battle of Britain. 'Operation Homecoming' brought many of 'The Few' living abroad back to Britain for the Anniversary and for various receptions - Maidstone - Bentley Priory - Biggin Hill - Buckingham Palace. It was a one-off LAST TIME 'The Few' would be gathered in such numbers. Collected by Playwright, Screenwriter & Film Producer Anthony Attard, who has detailed how this amazing item came to pass. In 1990, former WWII Typhoon pilot and aviation author John Golley, introduced me to the Redgrave Theatre, Farnham, Surrey, who wanted a new play written to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of The Battle of Britain. I invited John to collaborate with me. The play was called 'Freedom To Forget,' and a Gala Performance in aid of the RAF Benevolent Fund was held, by totally uncanny coincidence on the 31st October 1990. The 31st October 1940 is now officially remembered as the date the Battle of Britain ended. A number of 'The Few' who lived reasonably local to Farnham were able to attend the Gala Night performance. Over the course of 1990, being commissioned to write the play enabled me to meet so many of the 'Few' who had always been my heroes. Also, Wing Commander N.P.W. 'Pat' Hancock OBE DFC, then Secretary of the Battle of Britain Fighter Association, forwarded letters I wrote to members of the Association and is how I obtained so many on labels. For every signature I received I made a donation to the B.O.B. Fighter Association to help with the financial cost of 'Operation Homecoming,' which brought so many of 'The Few' living overseas to the U.K., for the 50th Anniversary celebrations. The Czech and Pole signatories to this book were obtained at a reception held at Maidstone on Saturday 22nd September 1990. All of the other actual signatories were obtained when I was a guest at the Biggin Hill Air Show that same year, or by personal visit to their homes where I was privileged to hear their enthralling memories of the Battle of Britain. Not all the signatories replied either with a letter or by putting down their Squadron number. Some just sent back the labels duly signed. After twenty-two years now recording all the signatures, most I have still been able to identify. There are four signatures, as yet, I am unable to identify.
