A.J.P. TAYLOR
Rare signature from the controversial English historian, written on Magdalen College (Oxford) letterhead
Signature: "A.J.P. Taylor", in blue ink, 4½x7. A well-educated but controversial man, A.J.P. Taylor (1906-1990) was a 19th and 20th-century European historian and journalist, known particularly for his television lectures and anti-German views. Taylor began lecturing while teaching at the University of Manchester, with his scheduled lectures becoming so popular that rooms were often over-crowded. He later lectured at Oxford, but was dismissed upon the release of his highly successful but controversial book The Origins of the Second World War. This book was followed by several more works, including his English History 1914-1945, which was a more conventional success. Taylor began his work in journalism and broadcasting more seriously in the 1950's, writing for the Sunday Express from 1957 until 1982, and often appearing on panels and lectures for the BBC (despite his dislike for the network). These media appearances helped make him easily recognizable, known for his strong-headed, argumentative demeanor, and his long-time and very public feud with former friend Hugh Trevor-Roper. However, by the late 1980's, Taylor had calmed significantly due to injuries from previous car injury and his battle with Parkinson's. He mostly withdrew from the public eye, with his last television appearance being in 1985. Fold in center. Light surface creases. Small stain on top margin. Corners slightly worn and creased. Toned. Otherwise, fine condition.
