ABA member Neil Pearson acquires the late, great actor Alan Rickman’s archive

 02/05/2018

Neil Pearson Rare Books has acquired actor Alan Rickman’s archive of books, letters, scripts and photos. It includes hand-written notes from Nicole Kidman (who was too shy to go backstage to congratulate Rickman in person on his performance); another from a very young Daniel Radcliffe; plus a copy of a first edition of Lawrence Weschler’s 2004 Vermeer in Bosnia. Sigourney Weaver inscribed and gave this volume to her close friend Rickman after they had finished filming Snow Cake together. 'To Alan, For the train...during the 8 hrs. of prairie, a wonderful book - Much love, Sigourney, Snow Cake 2005.'
 
Items from Rickman’s archive will be on Neil Pearson’s stand at ABA Rare Book Fair London 24-26 May 2018.
