[please click on the image or book title for more details]"Martin Ross" April 19, 1913.' The English literary scholar Nevill Coghill was the nephew of Edith Somerville, the co-author of this book. First published by Longmans in 1903.

Edith Somerville [1858-1949] and her writing partner, her cousin Violet Martin ('Martin Ross') [1862-1915] are best known for writing the Irish R.M. stories together. After Violet's death in 1915 Edith, a firm believer in seances and the afterlife, continued to proclaim dual authorship of her books. This collection comprises eleven articles by the pair previously published in magazines, periodicals and anthologies.

A scarce signature, and a close family association.

BROCK, Brock Norman, and REFN, Nicolas Winding

Bronson

London: Vertigo Films, 2008

90 mimeographed pp., secured with file staple to left edge. Cast ownership label to title page.

Shooting script of the film starring Tom Hardy and directed by Nicolas Winding Refn, dated 26 February 2008 on title page, and copyrighted by Vertigo Media in 2006. ACTOR HUGH ROSS'S COPY, WITH PRODUCTION STICKER TO THAT EFFECT TO RIGHT HAND CORNER OF TITLE PAGE.

Hugh Ross played Uncle Jack in this biopic of Charles Bronson -- currently known as Charles Salvador, but born Michael Peterson -- often described as the most dangerous prisoner in Britain, and certainly one of the maddest. Bronson was very happy with the film's portrayal of him, although some of his family took grave exception to the film's depiction of Uncle Jack, in Hugh Ross's splendid performance, as an ageing, lascivious homosexual. (This would worry me deeply if I was Mr. Ross, but he seems remarkably unperturbed. Maybe he doesn't know...).
