Two rare posters commemorating the Polish Air Force Battle of Britain fighter ace Jan Falkowski (with his signature).

 

Two rare posters/prints commemorating WWII Polish fighter ace  and Battle of Britain pilot Jan Falkowski who flew with the RAF during the war. The first is a print of a famous painting by Arnold Hodgkins, "Portrait of Poland" depicting Falkowski holding a ceremonial dagger, in front of a montage of scenes from his remarkable flying career and life. A high quality art print on textured paper enttled which was produced in 1971. The print is in excellent condition, retaining its rich colours, with no damage or creases. It has been rolled up and will be mailed in a tube. The print is one of a small number that were signed by Falkowski and the autograph is crisp and clear in blue ink. The second item is a promotional poster which was hung in bookshops to announce the publication of Falkowski's autobiography in 1971 and features the cover illustration along with the title of the book, "With the Wind in My Face."  The poster has a small stain in the upper left hand corner and a very small split on the right hand edge, but is otherwise in very good condition. Two rare pieces of artwork and a rare Battle of Britain Polish fighter pilot's autograph.

Fantastic and rare original poster for aircraft factory workers.

 

Very rare poster which was sent to aircraft factories as a morale booster for workers who despite constant bombing raids, continued to work hard producing much needed aircraft for the RAF. The poster features a letter from Stafford Cripps, Minister of Aircraft Production, and depicts 3 Hurricane fighters flying over a convoy of fighters being shipped by lorries. Rich colour printing has not faded, and though the poster was definitely used, it remains in fine displayable condition. Has been folded into four, some very minor loss in corners and has been taped on the back where it has split very slightly at the folds. These flaws in no way detract and if anything add to the historic value of the poster. Size is approximately 20" x 30" and is dated 1943. A superb poster which would make a fantastic backdrop to any RAF collection.

RARE original WWII poster in the "Carless Talk..." series.

 

One of the most prevalent and successful propaganda campaigns of the war was the "Careless Talk Costs Lives" campaign launched by the British Government. It featured the work of several prominent artists and different designs were targeted at all branches of the service, as well as war workers and civilians. This one, titled "Keep Mum – She's Not So Dumb!"  depicts a soldier of the British Army and will have been posted on Army bases and training facilities, urging soldiers not to inadvertently mention anything about their location, postings, training etc. to girlfriends, family members, even if they are well-trusted. Poster is original, measures 10" x 15" (25cm x 38cm) printed on war grade paper so quite fragile. It retains its full bright colour, but has been folded in half and has some edge nicks and tears, folds and creases with a couple of small pieces gone at the edge (see picture). A classic and very rare original.

WWII original propaganda poster - Mosquito over Berlin

 

Original art posters are among the most difficult items to find, because so few of them have survived, yet they set off any aviation collection superbly. This is a wonderful example of the propaganda/morale-boosting publicity to be found. Printed for H.M. Stationery Office by Fosh and Cross, Ltd. of London, the poster measures 20" x 30" and depicts a RAF Mosquito bomber releasing its bombs over Berlin's "official quarter" with the simple headline/caption "Into Action." Four more Mosquitoes are getting ready to make their bombing run. The detail in the painting  is truly amazing, with buildings, vehicles and even people on the ground clearly shown, as well as the nazi flag on several of the buildings. The colour is as bright and sharp as new. Overall, the poster is in good condition but was folded for many years and the wartime, lower quality paper has partly split along the folds, just a few inches at the edges, with evidence of very old tape being used to hold it together (mostly visible on the back). The only paper loss is a small nick at the top, but all these small flaws would easily be remedied with framing or professional conservation (linen backing  etc). A rare and superb example of WWII poster art. Will be posted in a tube.

Lovely collection of 13 (+1 duplicate) 1940s pin-up prints.

 

Perhaps tame and innocent by today's standards,  but considered glamourous and even risqué in the 1940s, these lovely ladies were found on many a barrack room wall or inside the lid of many airmen's trunk or footlocker. There are 14 altogether, including one duplicate, so a baker's dozen. All in excellent condition and mounted in photo album pages (but easily removed). Each is approximately 5" x 7.5" 

and are signed by artists Billy DeVorss and Art Frahm.

Remarkable personalized first edition of one of the classic books on early WWII RAF fighter pilots, "Squadrons Up" by Noel Monks.

Squadrons Up was written early in the war and  published at the beginning of what we now call the Battle of Britain. It features stories about the men who flew in the Battle of France and focuses on 73 squadron and its iconic New Zealander "Cobber" Kain, the first "Ace" in the RAF. This book was given as a Christmas gift by one of the WAAF nurses who was stationed at Kirton in Lindsey, and who knew these brave men. She attached three personal photographs of the personnel of 73 squadron, including "Doc" Outfin, Cobber Kain and several other notable RAF pilots. Kain was killed in June, 1940 so photos of him are quite scarce and this is a superb piece of history.  Noel Monks was the Daily Mail War Correspondent who was "embedded" with the RAF in France and the book itself is highly regarded - but this unique personalized edition is a wonderful piece of history with its own intrinsic value. No dust jacket and has a scorch mark to front cover but otherwise nice tight binding and very good condition.

50 year Commemorative Lindbergh coins x 2.

Commemorative coins struck to mark the Golden Jubillee of Lindbergh's historic solo flight across the Atlantic, in May 1927. Coins are the lightweight aluminium type, but very detailed. 1.375" (35mm) diameter, showing the head of Lindbergh with characteristic flying helmet and goggles on the obverse and the "Spirit of St. Louis" above the Eiffel Tower on the reverse. I would guess these were for some kind of promotion or giveaway but are no doubt collectible in their own right. Very good condition with minor surface rubbing. Price is for both coins.

Two original wartime pencil drawings of  aircraft - extremely high quality artwork.

The first drawing 7" x 5.5" (18cm x 14cm) of a  Luftwaffe Heinkel III. On heavy art paper, signed by the artist and dated 1942. The second is 10" x 9" (25cm x 21cm) on art paper, trimmed and mounted on card. (My first thought was an Me 109, but I think it might be a Dewoitine 520). Signed and dated 1941 by the artist with 3 additional signed  messages, all in French. This is an excellent piece of art and well worth researching. Price for pair.
