BOB aces Multisigned book Those other Eagles - a tribute to the Briti

by Chaucer Covers & Auctions

May 29, 2015, 10:00 AM BST

Folkestone, United Kingdom

Estimated Price: £60 - £80

Description: BOB aces Multisigned book Those other Eagles - a tribute to the British, Commonwealth and Free European fighter pilots who claimed between two and four victories in Aerial combat 1939-1982 - a companion volume to Aces High by Christopher Shores hardback book. 671 pages with detailed information on each pilot. This massive, extensively researched volume is an indispensable companion to the eminent historian Christopher Shores' other seminal work (with Clive Williams), Aces High, Volumes one and two. In those books he detailed the lives and exploits of those aces who achieved five or more aerial victories, and gave exhaustive information on each score, the where, what, when and how. This completely new book follows the same format as the author now turns his attention to those claiming between two and four. Why this number? Because a single score could have been a fluke, whereas achieving more, points towards the potential skill and virtuosity of a fighter pilot, offering the promise of a higher total if the opportunity arose - and this is the nub of the matter. A fair majority of these men would have shot down many more enemy aircraft if the theatre of operations and timing had been right. Nevertheless there are numerous illustrious and familiar names within these pages; people like Neil Cameron, Guy Gibson, Tom Gleave, Pat Hancock, Micky Martin, David Morgan, Rene Mouchotte, Jeffrey Quill, Fred Rosier, Whitney Straight, Peter Twiss, Geoffrey Wellum, and so many more, These were £50 when new. Limited edition Bookplate attached to inside front page signed by 7 including Bill Green, Nigel Rose, Terence Kane, Ken Wilkinson, W Clark, Len Davies. Stan Duff DFC.. Good condition

Contemporary Musical Automaton Portrait of John F. Kennedy by Christian Bailly, 2015

by Auction Team Breker

May 30, 2015, 10:00 AM CET

50997 Köln , Germany

Estimated Price: €15,000 - €20,000

Description: Contemporary Musical Automaton Portrait of John F. Kennedy by Christian Bailly, 2015 Depicting President Kennedy at work at his desk, with plaster-composition character head, brown glass eyes and moulded hair, seated at ebonized writing desk with quill pen and a battery-powered brass lamp, dressed in grey wool suit, spotted tie and hand-sewn leather shoes, with single-air going-barrel movement in body playing "Happy Birthday" and brass key signed "C.B.", height 21 ½ in. (55 cm), base 12 in. (30 cm) x 17 ¾ in. (45 cm). - Inspired by Gustave Vichy's automaton "Pierrot Ecrivain" of c. 1895, Bailly portrays the 35th president of the United States engaged with official correspondence: a telegram to Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev. - The President's thoughts, however, appear to be on the photographs of Marilyn Monroe that lie on his table, for - as the lamp light dims - he pauses and his head falls, as though on the verge of sleep. Waking, he turns up the lamp and continues writing. - The automaton is accompanied by the theme "Happy Birthday", recalling Marilyn Monroe's unforgettable performance of "Happy Birthday, Mr. President" at Madison Square Garden, New York, on 19 May 1962 - just three weeks before her sudden death. - This contemporary automaton by Christian Bailly completes his political trilogy, after Presidents Barack Obama in 2013 and Vladimir Putin in 2014. - Literature: Bailly, "Automata, the Golden Age", pp. 74-75. - A unique animated portrait. Watch & Listen on:-------------------------------Youtube.com/AuctionTeamBreker Musik-Puppenautomat "Portrait von Präsident John F. Kennedy", 2015 Politischer Puppenautomat von Christian Bailly, Paris. Nach dem klassischen Vorbild "Pierrot Ecrivain" von Gustave Vichy, um 1895. Er zeigt den 35. Präsidenten der Vereinigten Staaten an seinem Schreibtisch bei offizieller Korrespondenz: ein Telegramm an den sowjetischen Premier Nikita Chruschtschow. Charakterkopf aus Gips, braune Glasaugen, modelliertes Haar, an einem Schreibtisch, mit Schreibfeder und batteriebetriebener Petroleumlampe aus Messing, bekleidet mit grauem Wollanzug, gepunkteter Krawatte und handgenähten Lederschuhen, Korpus mit Federwerkmotor, Mechanik und Walzenspielwerk, mit "C.B.-"Messingschlüssel, Höhe 55 cm, Grundmaße 30 x 45 cm. - Die Gedanken des Präsidenten scheinen aber tatsächlich bei Marylin Monroe zu sein, deren Photos auf dem Schreibtisch liegen, das Lampenlicht wird schwach, sein Kopf sinkt nach vorne, und er nickt leicht ein. Aufwachend dreht Kennedy das Licht wieder hoch und schreibt weiter. Die Bewegungen der Puppe werden von der Melodie "Happy Birthday" begleitet und erinnert an "Happy Birthday, Mr. President", Marylin Monroes unvergesslicher Auftritt am 19. Mai 1962 im Madison Square Garden, nur 3 Wochen vor ihrem plötzlichen Tod. - Literatur: Bailly, "Automata, the Golden Age", S. 74-75. - Dieser zeitgenössische Automat von Christian Bailly komplettiert seine politische Trilogie: nach Präsident Barack Obama, 2013, und Vladimir Putin, 2014. - Ein einmaliges Porträt!
