This item originates from the Roy Moseley collection. Moseley was one of the leaders in show business journalism in England. He wrote many books that appeared on the New York Time’s Best Seller List. Being an author in high regard had its perks, as he was closely connected to royalty and celebrities. Hence his notable work, “My Stars and Other Friends” provides a glimpse into the lifestyle us everyday people dream about. During his career, Moseley brilliantly gathered in person some of the finest autographs in the world. Some were personalized to him as a testament to their respect and kinship. Every celebrity has a story as well as every autograph Moseley obtained. Here now is one of those legacy pieces for your collection.
Presented is a piece of parchment 4×6 taken out of an autograph album. The autographs were inscribed, “To Roy.” Both sides were signed by two distinguished gentlemen – Tennessee Williams and Count Basie. Williams of course was a playwright who wrote many acclaimed stage productions including A Streetcar Name Desire (1947); Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (1955) and Sweet Bird of Youth (1959). Count Basie was jazz musician who added the bebop feeling to his songs. He signed in blue pen.
