PostSubject: Out there from David Jackson   Out there from David Jackson EmptyWed Dec 11, 2019 2:26 pm

I've written to David Jackson's sole legal heir regarding certain items belonging to David he had boxed up in his possession.  I haven't had a reply from him and fear I may not get one.  I thought I'd let members know of this so that they can keep an eye on sale rooms, auctions, etc.
David had about 200 copies of Hill of the Sphinx, all boxed up, which he intended to donate to Brecon for it to sell.  He wasn't able to make that donation so where are they now...?  I hope not in a skip.
He also had all his notebooks from 1955 till now which he also intended to donate to Brecon and never did.
He also hand-drew a copy of Hamer's map from TNA of the movements on the plateau on the 22nd.  The original vanished from TNA many years ago.  I had sight of this once in the 90s but cannot recall any of its detail.  I always intended making a photocopy but never got round to it.  There's a moral there somewhere.  David's copy will be the only copy known but where is it now?
Lastly and most importantly, David had a copy of the original H coy 1/24th photograph.  He'd asked the museum for a copy back in the 50s and he had the copy made himself (the original was borrowed by Stanley Baker and never returned).  It was a duplicate in size of the original which was like a school photo about 3 feet long.  I saw it just once and what struck me was that you could see all the faces very clearly.  From this David had 3 smaller copies made, each a foot long, one of which he gave to IK, one to me, and one to the museum.  I am unaware whether he had any more made later on.  But where is that full-size copy of the original now...who knows?

Thank you for this Julian. Fingers crossed you get a reply. I must confess that before I joined the forums I'd never heard of "Hill of the Sphinx", but after it being recommended by several prestigious board members (yourself included I believe) I have thought of reading nothing else. Unfortunately my inquiries to any local (and not so local) antique and second hand book shops have come to naught.

I heard today from his heir who is going slowly through packed-up boxes of David's books and papers and will let me know if he discovers any Hill of the sphinx and the important missing items.
I'll keep the forum posted.
