Leon Trotsky Autographed Letter
Typewritten letter from Russian revolutionary Leon Trotsky showing a superb example of his autograph. <br> <br> Contains references to some of the most important people and events in his life. <br> <br> Leon Trotsky was a Russian marxist revolutionary and theorist, who played an instrumental role in the 1917 revolution and servied as the founder and commander of the Red Army. However, he soon came to oppose Joseph Stalin's policies during the 1920s and was later exiled to Mexico, where he was assassinated on Stalin's orders. <br> <br> His memorabilia is of great historical importance and, with the rise of Russia's middle-class, is becoming highly sought after as more collectors join the market. Those pieces that are not already housed in institional collections are quickly snapped up by private collectors. <br> <br> This one page typed letter is written in French and signed by Trotsky. Measuring 7¼ x 11&#34; and dated May 6, 1939, Trotsky writes to his lawyer, Gerard Rosenthal: <br> <br> &#34;We have received with delay the new copy of the letter of Jeanne Molinier concerning the documents and things left by Leon, the first copy of which had been burned on the 'Paris' <br> <br> &#34;All the precautionary measures will naturally be taken to ensure that the handing over of the documents be protected from possible attacks&#34; <br> <br> The Paris is an ocean liner that caught fire in April 1939. Leon was Trotsky's son (and husband of Jeanne Molinier) who died in a Paris hospital in 1938 following an unsuccessful appendectomy, some say as a result of Stalin's orders. <br> <br> At the centre of the family conflict were bundles of documents belonging to Trotsky that were in Molinier's possession. The majority of these survived, and are now held in three major collections at Harvard University, Amsterdam's International Institute for Social History and Stanford University. <br> <br> This letter serves as a who's who in Trotksy's life while in exile in Mexico. Rosenthal was his attorney and agent in Paris as well as a member of the French Bolshevik-Leninist movement. <br> <br> An intriguing piece of correspondence which carries with it all of the mystery and intrigue of Stalinist Russia.

Buddy Holly Employment Application Form
Rock and roll legend, Buddy Holly was born Charles Hardin Holley in 1936. His music is said to have inspired the likes of The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and Bob Dylan. <br> <br> Holley signed to Decca Records in 1956. His name was misspelled "Holly" on the contract and Buddy adopted this misspelt version of his name for his music career. <br> <br> Just four years after signing his first record contract, on February 3 1959, Buddy Holly died in a plane crash with fellow rock 'n' roll musicians Ritchie Valens and J.P. "The Big Bopper" Richardson. This date is often referred to as "The Day the Music Died". <br> <br> This is an application form for employment at The Texas & Texas Company measuring 11" x 8.5". The form features some light staining and scuffing to the edges but otherwise in fantastic condition, especially considering its age. <br> <br> Buddy Holly has printed his name "HOLLEY, CHARLES, BUDDY" in black ink but has failed to fill in any other information including position desired, address, details of education and practical experience. <br> <br> Holly's love of music was apparent from a very young age and at the age of just 5 he won a talent contest singing Have You Ever Gone Sailing (Down the River of Memories). It was most likely his aspirations of becoming a professional musician that prevented him from applying to this job. <br> <br> An unusual piece of personal memorabilia from a pioneer of rock 'n' roll.
