David Bowie & Spiders From Mars – 5 Autographed Petty Cash Receipts and Vintage Promotional Photograph
An impossibly rare set of David Bowie and the Spiders From Mars autographs on five petty cash receipts (for cash advanced to them by management).
The individual receipts are signed by David Bowie and Spiders From Mars members Mick Ronson (guitar,) Trevor Boulder (bass,) and Woody Woodmansey (drums.) Also included is a receipt signed by Aynsley Dunbar, who replaced Woody Woodmansey in the Spiders. Each is dated 1972 or 1973–Bowie and the band’s absolute peak.
Bowie signed his ‘Petty Cash Voucher’ on July 27, 1973, while he was recording his album Pin Ups at the Chateau d’Herouville, in Pontoise France. The details section reads “Money to David from float for personal Expenses” and the amount is 3070 French Francs. Bowie signs “Bowie,” as he signed his name during that era. (5 1/8″ x 4 1/8″)
Mick Ronson signed his receipt for 3050 Italian Lira (“for personal items from chemist and film”) on August 12, 1973, while on vacation with Bowie in Italy; it is countersigned by a tour assistant (5 1/8″ x 4 1/8″.). Trevor Boulder and Woody Woodmansey signed for their advances on October 1972, during Bowie’s first US Tour. Boulder’s is dated October 15, for an advance of $20 while the band was in Kansas City, and Woodmansey’s is dated the October 30, for an advance of $10 while in Seattle. Each band member signs his first initial and last name, as was the custom for UK residents signing documents. (5 1/2″ x 3″). Second Spiders drummer Aynsley Dunbar signed his voucher on 26 July, 1973 also while in France during the recording of Pin Ups, his advance being 700 French Francs.
