Very rare Shop Display Poster in full colour with a scene of Piccadilly Circus, London in 1964 which includes at its center the London Pavillion Theatre which at the time the photo was taken was showing the Premier of the Beatles first film 'A Hard Days Night'. This would probably have been displayed in a French travel agents window to entice people to visit London in the swinging '60s. This is a very rare photograph and possibly unique image of the London Pavillion with the Beatles in A Hard days Night writ large to the front of the building.

Along the bottom edge printed  in the center: 
10 - Picadilly (sic), to the left SIPAP Poitiers and to the right Poitiers BIG BEN Publications.

Printed on stiff card with a white border it has a gloss finish on the front with a plain white matt finish on the reverse.
Measures approx 15"x 11"(38cm x 28.5cm).
Condition is EX+ with some mild surface creasing which does not adversely affect the picture and a very small almost insignificant pin hole to each corner where the photo meets the border.

Entitled 'Infringements' dating from circa April/May 1964, this is a very rare unique authentic and original comprehensive eight page typed list of Beatles Worldwide Merchandising Licenses granted by M. A. Jacobs and Sons on behalf of Brian Epstein's company NEMS Enterprises. 
In other words for products we now collect and refer to as Beatles Memorabilia.
This was the only typed copy ever produced so is now the only one in existence and unique.

In total 37 companies were granted licenses and this document lists the Address, Date/Duration and Product for each. 

These come under 5 Category Headings as follows:

JEWELLERY - 16 Licenses. 

MATERIAL ARTICLES (handbags, cushions, pennants etc) - 5 Licenses.

COSMETICS - 2 Licenses.

STATIONERY ITEMS - 9 Licenses 

MISCELLANEOUS - 5 Licenses

A rare document of Beatles Memorabilia stating who was issued with a license and who made what and where in the world they were permitted to sell and for what duration. Includes brand names now famously recognisable as producers of Beatles Memorabilia including: Fleetway Publications, Invicta Plastics, Exquisite Jewellery, Smiths Watches, Unitrend, Ramat, Olive Adair, Twig, Louis Dow, Seagull and Subbuteo. 

Eight Pages stapled together at the top right corner measuring approx 10" x 8" each. Although yellowed throughout with foxing condition is otherwise VG/EX with no tears and only a few surface creases in a few isolated areas. 

Note: Comes with a signed letter of provenance from Neil Rock who (originally owned and had this definitive document typed up by the company secretary in 1964) worked for London Company Stramsact Ltd who were granted with a license to operate in negotiations as sole agents for the Beatles Merchandising Rights during circa 1963/64 onwards. The document is entitled 'Infringements' because the exclusive licensing rights for these 37 products were challenged in court by Stramsact after later being also issued to the Beatles North American Merchandising company 'Seltaeb' by NEMS. This is all clearly and succinctly explained in Neil Rock's letter of provenance dated 23rd October 2016.

A pair of black trousers and book once owned by John Lennon with a detailed provenance letter from the family who knew Cynthia Lennon, plus photographs taken of the families together.

The Powell family (Cynthia's maiden name) and the vendors family originally became acquainted through Cynthia's grandmother (Lilian Powell) when they lived in Hoylake, Liverpool. 

Cynthia Lennon gifted the book and trousers to the vendors mother. The photographs of the family with Cynthia and Julian were taken by the vendors family during the 1960s and 70s. There are 12 photographs in total with Cynthia Lennon in five, Julian Lennon in three (one in the pool and one in the garden at the Lennon's home in St. Johns Wood) and one of him at the vendors home. There are two further photos showing the rear of the house and garden of John and Cynthia's house in St. Johns Wood when John and Cynthia were still together. The photographs are proof positive that the Lennon's and the vendors families were well aquainted. There is mention in the provenance letter of the vendors Mother, Brother and Herself taking a train from Lime Street Station in Liverpool to London where they were met by the Lennon's chauffeur at the station and remembers "Having a fabulous time in the biggest house I have ever seen"! She further mentions that Cynthia and Julian would visit her Mother and Father whenever she visited Lilian Powell (her Mother) in Liverpool. She also mentions that her Father did some work at Cynthia's home in Wimbledon. This would have been after John and Cynthia split.

The vendor clearly states in the letter that the trousers and the book were given to her Mother by Cynthia. The trousers have the name John hand written on one of the pocket linings in black permanent marker, typical of a tailor. The writing is quite distinctively in the hand of Dougie Millings, the Beatles tailor, which typically has the letter H written as a capital letter. Dougie Millings always wrote John thus 'JoHn', of which there are many examples of the circa 1963-66 period the trousers (by style) are from. The trousers are unusual in that they have elasticated 'loops' sewn into the ends of both legs to prevent them riding up.

'The Prophet' (1964 edition) by Kahil Gibran was sent to John and Cynthia by a fan from California with her address. Inside the front cover she has written a note to Cynthia & John mentioning a letter she wrote to them previously, plus an additional note to John & Cynthia on a slip of paper (which was stuck onto the same page) reflecting that even though the book has become so popular they should read it anyway. 

Very interesting is that John took some words directly from another of Gibran's books 'Sand and Foam' and used them word for word in the lyrics of his 1966 song, 'Tomorrow Never Knows' on the Beatles LP Revolver. A coincidence? Perhaps after first reading 'The Prophet' he read 'Sand and Foam'!

NOTE: Comes with a signed and dated letter of provenance letter from the vendor to whom these items were passed down within the family, from Mother to herself, and to us.
