I have 3 books previously owned
by Noel Coward, in one of which he has written his name in pencil.
The provenance/circumstances are as follows: A number of years
after Noel Coward left Bermuda, my father-in-law, as a realtor,
cleared out Spithead prior to refurnishing and renting the place.
He came across a large carton of books with Noel Coward's name
on it. He was instructed that the books were no longer of interest
to Mr. Coward.
Over the years, many of the books deteriorated in Bermuda's environment;
sadly, within recent years, I had to throw out James Montgomery
Flagg's autobiography in which he had inscribed "To Viola
Coward, with love from Jimmie".
The remaining books are all first editions, not worth a great
deal except for the fact that they were previously owned by Noel
Coward and only the one has his signature in it.
It occurs to me that some of your members would be interested
in possessing the book.
I have put a tentative asking price of $500.00 US on the signed
book as my research on the internet re memorabilia from that
era and of Noel Coward appears to be a reasonable figure. (
A typed 1 page letter, signed by Noel Coward, was recently offered
on one of the internet auction sites for $585.00 US).
I would appreciate your assistance in finding a suitable 'home'
for this book and look forward to your reply.

- THE LIFE OF NOEL COWARD by Cole Lesley
- First edition 1976 (Jonathan
Cape) with dust jacket goodish condition. Lots of b/w photos.
£20 plus postage
- OSBERT LANCASTER ORIGINAL CARICATURE
- I own the original drawing Osbert
Lancaster made of Noel Coward, dressed in a kimono, sitting cross-legged
on a stool, fan in one hand, cigarette holder in the other, a
screen behind. It was used for the back jacket of Charles Castle's
book, "Noel". It is in its original frame which I believe
was made by Partridges of Bond Street. It is currently for sale
and may be of interest to members of the society. I brought the
drawing from Stanley Hall. Stanley owned a business called Wig
Creations in London and did all the theatrical hairpieces for
many years. Noel gave Stanley the rights to many of his titles
to use in naming soaps, scents and candles etc. I think it was
about 1979 that he and Charles Castle decided to move from their
apartment in Beckenhall Manions to their country house in West
Sussex. There they had an aviary and Charles bred Welsh ponies.
It was at a "clearing out" sale prompted by this move,
that I encountered and purchased the piece. I expect your members
will know why Noel is depicted in this quasi-oriental mode -
all I know is that this is one of what the publishers of "Noel"
refer to as "masterly caricatures". I am reachable
via email. Bobo Faulkner, can be contacted at [email protected],
by fax on 650-343-3699 or phone 650-343-3100.

upright piano no.105460 for sale made in 1905/6
- This piano has been in my family
for many years - unfortunately nobody plays it any more and we
are selling it. The original tag hanging on a hook inside says
it was to go to: A & V Crops for Mrs. Coward - its no. was
105460, which gives it a date of 1905/6 - could Mrs Coward have
had a young son called Noel and could he have learnt to play
on this instrument?
If anyone could throw any light on this subject or be interested
in purchasing it please let me know via e-mail address above
- thank you.
