n.p., n.d.. 9.5" D. "Pair of Focus Mitts, each approximately 9.5"" diameter, 1.5"" thick, accompanied by images of Bruce Lee using these Focus Mitts and two signed typed letters of provenance, each one page, 8.5” x 11”, each dated September 2011.(1) “My name is David Tadman and I am a writer and producer and Bruce Lee historian. This letter concerns a right and left-handed pair of brown leather Focus Mitts that were owned and used by Bruce Lee, the legendary martial arts action superstar. These Focus Mitts are documented in many photographs and martial arts pictorial magazines that have been circulated from 1967 until present day. Bruce Lee used these Focus Mitts as a training aid to develop his physicality within the martial arts. These very Focus Mitts were a staple in his training when practicing his punching and kicking techniques within his Jeet June Do training. I have written many books on Bruce Lee and am well qualified to opine on such items. I have, through photo inve ... Read more

n.p.:n.p., [1961]. This Honer Marine Band harmonica was given to Peter McKenzie, the youngest member of the McKenzie family with whom Dylan lived sporadically during 1961 shortly after arriving in NYC, a period that has been chronicled extensively by Dylan and others. It was during this time that Dylan's harmonica playing got him his first professional recording sessions, as an accompanist for Carolyn Hester and Harry Belafonte. When Dylan started playing clubs and recording on his own, the harmonica was a distinctive and prominent part of his sound. According to Jeff Gold, noted Dylan collector and dealer in music memorabilia, there are only a couple of signed Dylan items dated 1961 that are known to exist. The harmonica itself is in nice condition. The lid of the box is tender, being partially split along the seam where it attaches to the box, and there is a slight sepia patina of age, however the signature and date are strong and clear. The harmonica is housed in a handsome clamshell box with a ... Read more

London: Macmillan and Co., 1894. First edition. Hardcover. John Lockwood Kipling. This is a compelling set of British first editions of perhaps Kipling’s most famous works – the first and second Jungle Books. These copies were previously owned by Churchill’s friends and publishers, Frank and Nelson Doubleday, and apparently used by Nelson to prepare Doubleday’s 1946 editions. Ironically, Kipling’s quintessential tales of India were conceived in Vermont, where Kipling and his father, John Lockwood Kipling (1837-1911) “worked together in the closest harmony… as the two sat smoking their pipes and plotting out fresh stories together.” (Allen, Kipling Sahib, p.328) Here Mowgli was born, the infant found by Father Wolf, saved from Shere Khan, and tutored in the Laws of the Jungle by Bagheera the panther and Baloo the bear. “The pen took charge, and I watched it begin to write stories about Mowgli and the animals, which later grew into the Jungle Books.” Kipli ...
