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 advances paid to them by management), one each signed by David Bowie and each members of The Spiders From Mars, plus Aynsley Dunbar, who replaced Woody Woodmansee.  All signed in 1972 or 1973–their absolute peak, along with a 1972 RCA Records press photograph of the band, suitable for framing with the receipts.
Bowie’s ‘Petty Cash Voucher’ is dated 27th July 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, and countersigned by a tour assistant (5 1/8″ x 4 1/8″)
Trevor Boulder and Woody Woodmansee signed in 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″).  And finally second Spiders drummer Aynsley Dunbar signed on 26 July, 1973 also while in France during the recording of Pin Ups, his advance being 700 French Francs.
Authentic autographs of Bowie and the Spiders are extremely rare.  We acquired these from someone formerly working at MainMan, Bowie’s management company.  With an original RCA Records 8″ x 10″ black and white promotional photograph of Bowie and the Spiders, performing at Oxford Town Hall 6/17/1972. Everything in excellent condition.  With Recordmecca’s written lifetime guarantee of authenticity.o
