230 FIND THE CROC OF GOLD - A UNIQUE & FANTASTIC COLLECTION Ten original works by GERARD GLYNN including the following original artworks used in the private publication (only 100 copies): By the gate to Tir Na nOg; Just over the horizon — Tara and surroundings; The Donegal dance; The magic cubes; The ruined cathedral; The elves rest in the wood; The wizards’ garden (includes Sir Patrick Moore on a flying saucer); The rainbow weavers; The crock of gold; and Midsummer eve; together with a hard copy of the book for which the paintings were originally commissioned in 1983. Note: Gerard (Gerry) Glynn was born in Dublin and formed an early interest in drawing, painting and sculpture. Apart from a brief period in the National College of Art and Design, he is completely self-taught. He then went on to develop his own distinctive style in oil painting. He was at first influenced by classic sculpture, the surrealists and then, impressionism. He is at home with most of the painterly subjects, being an exponent of street scenes, still life landscape, seascape and interiors. He has also expressed an alternative flair for a ‘magic realist’ style uniquely his own. Gerry was recognised a number of times in the 1980’s when he won seven top awards in the National Art Competitions for drawing and painting, 1980 to 1986. In 1985 he won an award for portraiture in a National Portrait Award Competition, and in 1988 he won the top award in an International Art Competition for his large magic real piece ‘The Ninth Hour’. He has exhibited in many group shows since the 70’s and has had four one-man shows in 1977, ‘84, ‘91 and Brussels in 1993. His work has been exhibited with the Waldock, Blue leaf, James and Killarney Art Galleries and is currently with Cherrylane Gallery, Killincarrig, Wicklow. His most recent large shows have been at the November Art Ireland Exhibition in the RDS in 2002, ‘03, ‘04 and May 2004. Gerry has experience in book illustration and worked in film animation as a background designer and painter for many years. He has exhibited works at the R.H.A. and Oireachtas exhibitions and his work has been auctioned in Mullins Art Auctions, Laurel Park, Bray, Co. Wicklow. The Department of Defence and the National Treasury Management Agency have a number of works in their private collections, as does Castle Leslie in Co. Monaghan. Much of his works are in private collections in Ireland, U.K., Europe, U.S., Canada, Australia and Japan. His paintings are also in the private collections of a number of television personalities.

GUIDE TO BUYING AT MEALY’S AUCTIONS Step 1 - Browsing: All items scheduled for sale in our auctions are featured on our website with descriptions,

estimates, illustrations, and any other relevant information such as provenance, exhibition history, etc. By visiting Auctions on our site, you will have access to all this information at the touch of a button. PDF versions of the print catalogue are also available online. If an item takes your fancy, you can request a condition report, or further images, or a call-back from the expert. Just make sure such enquiries are made in good time. If you prefer the printed word, our catalogue publications are generally available approximately 7 working days in advance of the sale. These feature much of the information from the website such as descriptions, estimates, etc and also show a cross section of illustrations of the most exciting lots. These can be ordered online, or you can telephone our offices to request a copy of same. You can also subscribe to our mailing list on an annual basis to ensure you receive these publications by post while they are still hot off the press. Public viewing takes place on the two days immediately prior to any major sale, wherein you can visit our gallery and inspect the items for yourself. A note on Estimates: All estimates are shown in Euro. The figures are intended as a guide to prospective purchasers in relation to the value of the piece. They are approximate values, based on previous sales of comparable items, are not definitive and subject to revision. Reserves, if applicable, will not be higher than the lower estimate, adjusted for vendor commissions. A note on Condition Reports: Requests for condition reports must be received prior to public viewing, i.e. at least three days in advance of the sale, to allow time for the request to be processed and a response to be prepared. All lots at auction are sold ‘as is’. Imperfections, defects and other condition issues are not stated in the catalogue description. It is the duty of the prospective purchaser to satisfy himself or herself as to the condition of a lot prior to bidding. Condition reports may be requested in advance of sale and best efforts will be made to provide prospective purchasers with such reports, but such reports are merely the gratuitous opinion of the auctioneer. Subsequent disputes arising in relation to the content of such reports will not be entertained. Step 2 - Bidding: There are a number of bidding methods available at Mealy’s, including paddle bidding in the auction room, absentee bidding such as commission bidding & telephone bidding, and online bidding. Paddle Bidding - Come to the saleroom on auction day and experience the atmosphere and buzz of a real live auction.

Step 4 - Collection & Delivery: Once you have made payment, collection is available for five working days following a sale.

GUIDE TO BUYING AT MEALY’S AUCTIONS TERMS & CONDITIONS FOR BUYERS 1. THE BUYER The buyer shall be highest bidder acceptable to the auctioneer, whose bid is at the hammer price. Any dispute arising in relation to same shall be settled at the auctioneer’s sole discretion. Bidders will be assumed to acting as principal in the transaction unless specific instructionsare provided detailing otherwise. As such, all bidders are liable in a personal capacity for the total amount due, irrespective of agency agreements. Mealy’s contract as agents for sellers whose identity, for reasons of confidentiality, is generally not disclosed. Accordingly, buyers are reminded that the primary contract is between the buyer and the seller, with Mealy’s acting as agent for the seller. 2. INSPECTION Ample opportunity is given for inspection. Each purchaser, by making a bid for a lot, acknowledges that he or she is fully satisfied before bidding, by physical inspection or otherwise, as to the description, condition, and other information relating to the lot. Despite all efforts being made to ensure accurate descriptions and estimates, lots purchased are assumed to have been viewed and inspected. As such, all lots are sold with all faults and errors of description, at the buyers risk. The Auctioneers are not responsible for the correct description, genuineness, authenticity or any default or defect in any lot, and make no warranty in this respect. Estimates reflect a range of values, the lower of which usually represents the reserve price. Buyers are reminded that estimates are merely the opinion of the auctioneer, are subject to change and are in no sense definitive. 3. PAYMENT All lots purchased are subject to a 20% (VAT inclusive) buyer’s premium. By bidding, all prospective purchasers agree in advance to pay this premium on the hammer price. Buyers attending the auction are encouraged to pay for lots purchased on the day of sale. Unless otherwise agreed in writing prior to the auction, the buyer of a lot shall pay to the auctioneer within five working days the total amount due. Notwithstanding this, the auctioneer may at its sole discretion, require a buyer to pay a deposit of up to 25% of the total amount due at the conclusion of the auction. The auctioneer may apply any payments received by a buyer towards any sums owing from that buyer to the auctioneer on any account, regardless of directions given by the buyer in that regard, whether express or implied. Payment methods include cash, Euro bank draft, cheque drawn on the buyer’s Irish bank account, EFT (subject to applicable bank charges), debit card and credit card (subject to 3% surcharge for Mastercard & Visa and 5% surcharge for American Express). Under no circumstances can the Auctioneers accept third party cheques either in full or part payment of any lot. Non-payment by a buyer may result in any of the following actions: • proceedings against the buyer for damages for breach of contract • recission of sale • resale of the lot(s) without notice, after which the buyer shall be responsible for any resulting deficiency in the total amount due • removal, storage and insurance of the lot(s) at the buyer’s expense • interest may be charged, commencing after five working days from the sale date, on the outstanding debt at a rate 1% above the Bank of Ireland base interest rate on the day of purchase • retention of lot(s) purchased at Mealy’s until the outstanding balance is settled in full • rejection of all future requests for bidding by the buyer or his/her agent • application of proceeds of sale of items consigned to Mealy’s by the buyer in settlement of outstanding balances 4. RESERVATION OF TITLE & RISK Title in an item or items purchased will not pass to the buyer until Mealy’s have received payment in full, notwithstanding possession. However, each lot remains the sole risk of the purchaser from the fall of the hammer. 5. COLLECTION, REMOVAL & DISPATCH OF GOODS Collection & removal of items purchased is at the buyer’s risk and expense from the fall of the hammer and is available from our offices for five working days after the sale. No purchase shall be claimed or removed until the sale has been concluded, i.e. purchasers cannot collect items while an auction is in progress. Collection can only take place during normal regular hours. Mealy’s shall not be responsible for lost, stolen, damaged or destroyed lots, if not collected within the allotted time frame. All lots not removed are subject to the minimum warehousing charges outlined below. Lots not removed within thirty days of the sale may be re-sold by auction or private sale without notice to the buyer. Any liability which there may be on the part of the Auctioneer, in respect of any loss, shall be restricted to a maximum of the price paid by the purchaser of the lot.

House Clearance sales and other specialised sales are subject to higher removal and storage charges that will be notified to buyers where relevant. Buyers should confirm the storage and warehousing charges for such sales in advance of bidding. If any buyer fails to comply with any of the above conditions, the damage recoverable from the defaulter shall include all loss arising from any re-sale of the lot, together with the warehousing charges and expenses in respect of both sales, and any money deposited in part payment shall be held by the auctioneer against the defaulters liability and may be appropriated in settlement of the liability.NB.

GUIDE TO BUYING AT MEALY’S AUCTIONS 7. CONDITION OF LOTS All lots at auction are sold ‘as is’. Mealy’s act as agents for the seller and as such, are dependent on information provided by the seller. Whilst efforts are made to inspect lots and act reasonably in taking a general view about them, we are unable, in the normal course of business, to carry out detailed examinations of lots to ascertain condition. In addition, Mealy’s are not restorers, conservation experts or related professionals. Buyers are provided with ample time to examine lots and ascertain condition, and by bidding, accept the duty and responsibility for inspecting, examining and investigating lots that they intend to bid on. Imperfections, defects and other condition issues are not stated in the catalogue description. Mechanical objects of any age are not guaranteed to be in working order. 8. CONDITION REPORTS Condition reports may be requested by buyers in advance of the sale and our employees may be able to assist buyers by providing such reports. However, these are provided for guidance online, without legal obligation or prejudice to standard terms and conditions of sale. Such reports are merely the gratuitous opinion of Mealy’s employees or operatives. Neither Mealy’s, nor the seller, accept any responsibility for the condition of lots or for the content of condition reports. Subsequent disputes arising in relation to condition and/or the content of such condition reports will not be entertained. 9. ABSENTEE BIDDING Absentee bidding is available to prospective purchasers in the form of commission bidding & telephone bidding. However, registration for absentee bidding must be completed by 5pm on the day preceding the sale. Mealy’s accept no liability for acts or omissions relating to bids received after this deadline. From time to time, Mealy’s will entertain absentee bidding requests received after the deadline has passed, but this is at the discretion of our employees and Mealy’s accept no responsibility for accuracy in the execution of such bid requests received after the deadline. All items purchased by absentee bidders are sold as is, and are assumed to have been viewed and inspected by the purchaser. In the case of commission bids, these will be executed by Mealy’s as cheaply as possibly, having regard to the reserve (if any) and competing bids. If two bidders submit identical commission bids, the auctioneer has sole discretion to determine the successful buyer, but will generally opt for the first commission bid received. Telephone bidders are reminded that telephone lines are inherently subject to technical issues. It is strongly advised that telephone bidders leave a ‘cover bid’, e.g. a commission bid with their maximum bid price, to account for situations in which technical issues result in telephone bidding problems. Once an absentee bid is received, a contractual agreement is in place and the bid cannot be revoked without express agreement in writing signed by the auctioneer. 10. ONLINE BIDDING Mealy’s offers online bidding services to those who cannot attend the sale via the-saleroom.com & artfact.com. Bidding registration for online bidding must be completed by 5pm on the evening preceding the sale day. A surcharge of 3% will be levied on the ultimate hammer price, in addition to the regular buyer’s premium of 20%, for successful purchases executed using this service. Since online bidding is hosted by 3rd parties, Mealy’s accept no liability whatsoever for disputes arising from same. We strongly encourage all prospective buyers to utilise our absentee bidding services in priority. Online bidders contract with the online auction host directly, not with the auction house. However, by registering with an online auction host, the bidder: • authorises Mealy’s, if they so wish, to charge the credit card given to the online auction host, in part or full payment, including all fees, for items successfully purchased • confirms that he or she is authorised to provide these credit card details and is indeed the account holder 11. AUCTION DISPLAYS AND ONLINE IMAGES Images are used to display items for Sale at Auction. This service is merely a reminder to the customer of items viewed previously during exhibition days. We do not guarantee the quality or condition of the item viewed, the accuracy of the display image or guarantee the item on display is the item being sold. Subsequent disputes arising as a result of such image displays will not be entertained. 12.
