Description:
November 13, 1710. The French nobility was a privileged social class in France from the Middle Ages until its abolition on June 23, 1790 during the French Revolution. Families of the French nobility could have two origins as to their principle of nobility: The families of immemorial nobility and the ennobled families. Sources differ about the actual number of French families of noble origin, but agree that it was proportionally among the smallest noble classes in Europe. Before Louis XIV imposed his will on the nobility, the great families of France often claimed a fundamental right to rebel against unacceptable royal abuse. The Wars of Religion, the Fronde, the civil unrest during the minority of Charles VIII and the regencies of Anne of Austria and Marie de Medici are all linked to these perceived loss of rights at the hand of a centralizing royal power.

Description:
1923. Extremely rare original photograph boldly signed "Albert Einstein Jersusalem 1923" during his only trip to Palestine in 1923. Einstein's return voyage from his tour of Japan and China took him via the Red Sea and Suez Canal which allowed him to accept the invitation of Arthur Ruppin, the director of the Palestine office of the Zionist Organization in Jaffa to visit the region for twelve days. Einstein arrived in Port Said on February 1, 1923, and from there he traveled to Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Jaffa and Haifa. The photographer, Zvi Oron, began his career in Warsaw and the United States before opening a studio in Tel Aviv in 1919. In 1930 he moved to Jerusalem and opened a studio of Jaffa Street working in the service of press clients and the British Government. He was well regarded for his candid images that captured daily life in the British Mandate. The Zionist archive holds over 1,300 of his negatives. Double matted and framed, the entire piece measures 19.75 inches by 15.5 inches. An… Read More

Description:
Rare original Alfred Hitchcock self-portrait, inscribed by the great director, "To Adrienne from Alfred Hitchcock." In near fine condition. The entire piece measures 14 inches by 11 inches. Rare and desirable. Often referred to as "The Master of Suspense", English film director and producer Alfred Hitchcock pioneered many elements of the suspense and psychological thriller genres. Over a career spanning more than half a century, Hitchcock fashioned for himself a recognizable directorial style. His stylistic trademarks include the use of camera movement that mimics a person's gaze, forcing viewers to engage in a form of voyeurism. In addition, he framed shots to maximize anxiety, fear, or empathy, and used innovative forms of film editing. His most successful films include Rebecca (1940), Rear Window (1954), Vertigo (1958), North by Northwest (1959) and Psycho (1960).
