        1945 Pre "The Goon Show" MANUSCRIPT Material

      This is an important archive of Manuscript material relating to Harry Secombe and Spike Milligan and their pre-The Goon Show history, Spike and Harry famously met during the Second World War, with a very funny first encounter involving a runaway Howitzer Gun in North Africa, then later just after the end of the War in 1945, but before demobilisation Harry joined a Variety Show in Naples Italy called "Over the Page", as a Comedian and Impressionist, and as a Singer, also on the Bill was the "Bill Hall Trio", a Musical Comedy act featuring Bill Hall on Violin, Johnny Mulgrew on Double Bass and Spike Milligan on Guitar, a hand written program was produced for the show, which was presumably later copied and printed for audience members. Included in this archive is THE ORIGINAL MANUSCRIPT HAND WRITTEN AND PAINTED PROGRAMME FOR THE SHOW FULLY SIGNED BY ALL THE CAST MEMBERS WELL OVER FIFTY SIGNATURES, each member of the cast signing their name under the act they appeared in. Harry Secombe appeared in three spots in the show and his signature appears three times, the Bill Hall Trio appeared last on the bill, and they have signed their names, including of course Spike Milligan, The Orchestra appeared first on the Bill with all eleven members signing their name including Johnny Mulgrew of "The Bill Hall Trio", who was playing his Bass in the Orchestra as well, other acts include Bob Wayne with his Hat and Cane, The Egyptian Sand Dance and Somersaults by Bob Hutchinson and Bill !! Light Comedy by Kenneth B. Lovell, and more, also loosely inserted in the program is a piece of paper with a hand written list of the acts in order of appearance from a later performance on 11th February 1946, the main Manuscript Programme is dated December 1945 Naples Italy, for many years the manuscript of the programme was in the hands of Kenneth Lovell who appeared in the show with an act called "The Silent Man with Silly Fingers", and included in the archive is an original letter sent on 31st May 1954 from Harry Secombe to Kenneth thanking him for the offer of accommodation at his home while he was on tour in England, and mentioning the recent birth of his son Andrew. After Kenneth's death, the original programme and posters for the show came into the hands of a Norman Haynes, and in 1992 he sent the posters and programme to Harry Secombe to look at, they let Harry keep the original posters for the show which they didn't want any payment for, and in return Sir Harry sent Norman and his wife a Signed Copy of his Autobiography, a Signed Photograph, and a Signed Copy of his latest Album, returning the programme as well, these items are included in the Archive along with the three Letters of Correspondence and a Compliments Slip from Sir Harry, The Autobiography also gives Harry's account of the "Over The Page" show and early meetings with Spike Milligan, soon after the appearance in the show they started a Comedy Act together, and the rest is history as we say.... A VERY IMPORTANT PIECE OF PRE-GOONS HISTORY DATING TO THE VERY BEGINNINGS OF THE SHOW BUSINESS CAREERS OF HARRY SECOMBE AND SPIKE MILLIGAN. THE MANUSCRIPT PROGRAMME FOR "OVER THE PAGE" IS A UNIQUE AND VERY IMPORTANT PIECE OF BRITISH COMEDY HISTORY. the Archive includes the 1945 Manuscript Signed Programme for the "Over the Page Show" signed by Harry Secombe and Spike Milligan, along with all the other cast members, over fifty signatures in all, the Hand Written list of the Shows itinerary for a production of the show on 11th February 1946, A 1954 signed Letter from Harry Secombe to Kenneth Lovell, Three Signed Letters from Harry Secombe in 1992 about the programme and posters for the show, a Signed Copy of Harry Secombe's Autobiography, A Signed Colour Photograph from Harry Secombe, A Signed copy of Harry Secombe's 1991 Album "Yours Sincerely Harry Secombe", and a Printed Compliment Slip from Sir Harry Secombe, CBE. , some creasing to the photo, and edge bumps to the album cover and books dustjacket, else in good condition.

Interesting Thomas Mann correspondence and ephemera archive compiled by Doris Dana, the long-time companion of poet, educator, feminist, Nobel laureate and Chilean diplomat Gabriela Mistral (i. e., Lucila de María del Perpetuo Socorro Godoy Alcayaga, 1889-1957), several of whose poems Dana translated and edited. The present collection documents the friendship which Dana entertained with the Mann family in the late 1940s, frequently touching upon her friendship with Gabriela Mistral. In the first correspondence document, written on August 27, 1946, Thomas Mann thanks "Miss Dana" for her "touching letter of August 15th" (not preserved here) and for the "hours we spent with you. - Particularly, I want to express to you, though belatedly, my appreciation of the excellent English translation of the article by Gabriela Mistral. I was deeply moved and surprised about the truly generous warm-heartedness with which this woman comments on my work and existence. Strangely enough: nowadays it is not seldom that people write about me in this tone and style to which I formerly was hardly used. It proves that one only has to persist long enough and people will begin to realize what one means to them." In an autograph letter written two days later, Katia Mann adds her thanks for a set of César Franck records, as well as for "the lovely little Mexican box which arrived two days ago" (receipt included in ephemera coll.). A few months later, Dana sends the Manns an album of Carol Bruce singing Gustav Mahler's "Songs of a Wayfarer" (letter dated. Oct. 16, 1946) and comments on the War Department's plans to translate and reprint her story, "My Soul To Take", in the "'Neue Auslese', a magazine published in Germany and circulated through all four zones of Germany, and Austria, as part of the reeducation program for the occupied areas [...] It is an immense satisfaction and privilege for me to be given a hearing in this way [...] - particularly since it stresses for me the functional aspect of writing [...] Thank you particularly for your appreciation of the article by Gabriela Mistral. To translate such an article was a privilege for me [...], and also a vicarious way of expressing my own feeling on your existence, your work and the things you represent." Mann answered on Nov. 1: "It is amazing that Mahler's musical personality is so completely expressed in these early compositions. The reproduction is excellent, and even the German pronunciation of the singer leaves hardly anything to desire [...] I am working hard on my novel [i. e, Doktor Faustus] which, if I stay well, I hope to finish in the first months of the coming year [...]". After am interval during which Dana has been in contact with the Manns' daughter Monika, Dana resumes the correspondence in March 1948: "I have just received a very warm letter concerning you from Gabriela Mistral [...] As you know, her tribute to you, which I had the honor of translating, appeared in 'The Stature of Thomas Mann.' The letter which she now writes to me expresses a profound appreciation of you + of your work [...] She tells me that she wil be in Los Angeles for a short time at the end of March + asks me if it might be possible for you to see her briefly. Believe me, if it is possible for you to see her I know that it will be a mutually happy meeting - for she is a poet of great genius + strength + magnitude. Monika tells me that you have broken your shoulder recently + suffered badly with it for awhile [...] I am looking forward eagerly to the appearance of the English translation of Dr. Faust. The enthusiastic responses I have heard from my friends who know German, is enough to make me most envious of their knowledge of your language. They say it is by far the best thing you have done. Oh - why have I not learned German! I am impatient to read this new work of yours [...]". Mann replies on March 21st that he immediately wrote to Gabriela Mistral, "asking her to give me a wring [!], when she comes to Los Angeles. I am looking forward to having her as a guest in our home [...] My arm is doing allright, and I think, in a few weeks I may forget about it [...]". - The correspondence with Monika includes three letters; in the first, she asks Dana to "have dinner with me one convenient evening soon - and I wanted to ask you whether it would be possible for you to arrange for me a one week's stay at your country place (from about 15.-23.) [...] It's very important for me!" Characteristically, she states the sender as "Monika Lanyi Mann" - in 1940, the year after their marriage, her husband, the art historian Jenö Lányi, had drowned when a German U-boat sank the ship on which the couple was emigrating to Canada (Monika being among the few survivors). She also misspells Dana's name as "Denah". - Includes four unpublished typed manuscripts by Monika Mann: "Betsy" (5½ pp.), "Circus" (7½ pp.), "Pet Tells his Story" (9½ pp.), and "Racine on the Chief" (5 pp.). They probably were written in 1947/48, when Monika made her first serious attempt at professional writing - much to her parents' chagrin, who did not believe in her talent and feared that uncomfortable family matters might be dragged into the public by their unbeloved daughter. - The collection is supplemented by several ephemera relating to Thomas Mann lectures, at several of which Dana took notes (relating to Nietzsche, Hitler, Roosevelt, the "nobleness of life" that is culture, its association with art and instict, etc.).

ADDED: rare compilation book "Metro Mozaïek". N.d., Uitgeverij David. With orig.wrapper (sl,damaged). . Extremely rare complete set. Edited by Jan-Gerhard and Marten Toonder. This rare satirical periodical published in The Netherlands during and immediately after the war, originated from the underground movement. Yr.6 no. 1 was still illegally published and no.7 (= Eerste daglicht-nummer) is the first "legal" issue, published after the liberation. Editor in chief was Jan Gerhard Toonder, and most important in Metro was the contribution of his brother Marten Toonder, with several full-page (and also smaller) politico-satirical drawings, satirizing the former underground-press, the internment politics, the military authorities, etc. Metro was founded in Oct.1944 by J.C.Pellicaan and D.D.B.van Veen, both former collaborators of the illegal "Vrij Nederland". To mislead the Germans but also "to irritate van Randwijk", the first number published had the faked numbering Year 5 no.7 (suggesting that it was founded even before "Vrij Nederland".) Publication went on till Yr.3 no.4. Apart from M.Toonder we also find drawings by H.G.Kresse, Fiep Westendorp, H.Kabos, René Zwartjes, a.o.; other collaborators were J.G.Toonder, P.Beihuizen, Geert Lubberhuizen. DAVID stands for "De Algemene Vrije Illegale Drukkerij". Winkel: 421.In total 35 issues were published. In the Index of the reprint another extra-number is included, which was never distributed officially, This is not included in the set offered. A few issues with small stamp "leesvereniging". 1.
