Marilyn Monroe - Showbusiness: Unique negative of Norma Jeane Baker, later Marilyn Monroe, taken by Joseph Jasgur. The image was taken on 6th March 1946 as part of some informal test shots that proceeded a formal shoot. This image is a true genesis as it is one of the first professional images ever taken of Marilyn. This photo forms part of her first modelling portfolio that was presented to Ben Lyon, casting director at 20th Century Fox. Norma Jeane Baker had married James Dougherty in 1942, soon after Doughtery's Merchant Marines unit was shipped out and Norma Jeane was left to work at a defence plant. With aspirations of becoming a model she joined Hollywood's Blue Book Model Agency. On March 6, 1946 Joseph Jasgur received a call from Emmeline Snively, head of blue book, Snively asked Jasgur to take a few test shots of an aspiring young model, he first photographed her on a small street in West Hollywood behind Beverly Boulevard, where this image was taken, and over the next few weeks he photographed her on top of Don Lee Towers, above the Hollywood sign and at Zuma Beach where this image was taken. This photo offers a unique glimpse of the young girl who was to become the global phenomena that was Marilyn Monroe. Photos of this type come to market very occasionally, however the true value in this image lies in the fact that it is sold with the copyright to reproduce and distribute the image as the winning bidder wishes. 5ins. x 4ins. Ex. Joseph Jasgur estate and Julien's, Beverley Hills.
Estimate: 2000-3000

Icons From History/Boxing/South Africa/Anti Apartheid: A signed condolence letter from Muhammad Ali to Oliver Tambo, President of the African National Congress, who died 11 days after the letter was sent, dated 13th April 1993. The letter is typed and hand signed by Ali on Muhammad Ali in South Africa stationery.
Dear Mr Tambo
Allow me to extend to you and the A.N.C. my deepest regrets upon hearing of the death of Chris Hani. My prayers go out to Mr Hani's family and the people of South Africa during these difficult days.

I am providing you the following information regarding my itinerary should you desire to contact me (prior to our scheduled meeting on 19 April 1993):-

CAPE SUN - 13 TO 16 APRIL - TEL: 021 238844
FAX: 021 238875

JOHANNESBURG - 16 TO 22 APRIL - TEL: 011 297011
GARDEN FAX: 011 291515
COURT

Inshallah, I pray that God keeps you safe.

The letter was typed by the personal assistant to the General Manager of the Elengem; hotel in Durban where Ali was staying at the time. Mr Ali requested the letter typed to express his condolences to Nelson Mandela on the loss of his friend and comrade Chris Hani who was assassinated on April 10th 1993.
A letter of provenance signed by the personal assistant who typed the letter reads in part.
"Due to my nervous excitement about typing a letter of such historical importance I misspelt the name Muhammad replacing the last "a" with an "e". The letter was taken to Muhammad Ali and duly signed before someone noticed the error and returned it to me. I typed it again but kept the incorrect copy for posterity."
This letter represents a rare opportunity for a collector to acquire a letter from one of the most iconic and charismatic figures of the 20th century to one of the greatest men in history.
Estimate: 1200-2000
