The Schneider Sylloge only mentions this stop variety existing from the Tower I Mint under the arrow initial mark anyway and not at Southwark. This is the only example we have seen and is presumably of the highest rarity. English Coins 1180-1551 by Lord Srewartby shows this stop variety comes chronologically between the use of the more familiar lozenge mascles and pellet and square stop varieties (page 482) and records the existence of this Half-Sovereign in the table on page 486 as “class v”. Additionally this coin’s legend does not quite correspond with what Lord Stewartby suggests in the penultimate paragraph on page 489.

A highly important piece of numismatic art, this pattern shilling is one of three known to be in private hands, and is the finest. Bispham, in his article, shows that this portrait piece is linked with the Durham House Mint Shillings, meaning that this was an early prototype piece for coinage of this denomination and may well have been produced for presentation. This piece was produced at a time when the young boy King’s name was not upon his coinage, and still in the name of his Father King Henry VIII, due to the poor debased state the coinage had been left in for the silver and gold denominations. Such a fine silver pattern of such intricate engraving detail, must have been produced to show that the new King, though of a young age, was powerful and also the new Head of the Church of England. Bispham conjectures (page 140) that this piece was probably engraved by the Frenchman Anthony Levens who commenced employment at the mint in 1547 and was also responsible for portraits and designs for the gold Half-Sovereigns, silver Groats and Half-Groats.

SOVEREIGNS

BM035 George IV (1820-1830), Uniface Base Metal Trial Reverse for a Sovereign, undated (c.1821), struck in lead on a slightly oversize thick flan, by Benedetto Pistrucci, St George, helmeted with streamer and cloak, slaying dragon right with sword, held by a left hand only, thin broken lance on ground, trace of WWP on ground-line, B.P. in exergue, all within a linear raised circle, 10.87g, 24mm to 24.3mm, thickness 2mm (WR -; Douglas Morris -; Bentley 948 this coin). Lightly corroded, “squeezed” in lead from the die and of ovoid form, otherwise very fine, perhaps unique. £975 ex Bentley Collection, part 3, Baldwin Auction 79, 8th May 2013, lot 948 This piece appears to be a later rendering of the reverse and appears to be close to the final design used for currency. Trials of this nature are usually only ever “squeezed” from a working die in uniface format in base metal because impressions can be taken from an unhardened die. Silver and gold require a hardened die, after which further work on the die is not possible.

Graded and slabbed by Numismatic Guarantee Corporation as “MS62” we note this is the second finest graded by them; a pleasing extremely fine with considerable brilliance and extremely rare in such a high grade. £12,500 ”Ansell” variety mintage 167,539 of a total calendar year mintage of 1,547,603 In 1859 this quantity of coin from the regular mintage was found to be of inferior “brittle” quality and, on melting, was found to have been annealed with quantities of antimony, arsenic and lead. Mr George Frederick Ansell, who was employed in the Rolling Room at the mint and had a scientific background, was given permission to experiment with this inferior batch of sovereigns. He was successful in adjusting the alloy mix to reproduce them in a much stronger form which resulted in the whole quantity being re-coined and denoted with the extra line in the hair fillet. Today they are very rare indeed, especially in higher grades.

Interesting Pattern Copper Crown Dated 1798 of George III

Dickinson found a contemporary reference to this pattern being for a Crown dated 1798, rather than connected to the Bank of England Dollar series as set out in English Silver Coinage and subsequently Linecar and Stone, which was a conclusion reached due to the shared use of the obverse die in the Dollar series

Foley further proposed that once the next Prime Minister was elected and he was affable to the series perhaps other series of such coins could be produced to highlight famous Prime Ministers, and British Inventions like the hovercraft.

Commemorative Medals Elizabeth I (1558-1603)

CM001 Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester, Quits Belgium 1587, cast Bronze Medal, unsigned, bust of Leicester threequarters facing, in richly decorated tunic, collar and feathered hat, ROBE CO LEIC ET IN BELG GVBER 1587, rev sheep in flat country, to the right a dog leaves them, INVITVS DESERO, NO GRECEM SED INGRATOS, 41mm (MI i 140/100). 49mm (Eimer 54; MI i 140-100). A little pitting, otherwise good very fine, contemporary and rare. £1,400 Despite tacitly supporting the Dutch for some time Elizabeth had been reluctant to make her involvement official for fear of offending the Spanish monarchy and risking war. Nevertheless after French and Spanish Catholics joined forces, with the aim of defeating French protestants, Elizabeth accepted the United Provinces’ offer of sovereignty and appointed Leicester as Governor and Captain General of Holland, Zeeland and the United Provinces. He was ultimately unsuccessful in this role. Although a prominent businessman he misunderstood the delicate balance of trade between Dutch and Spanish merchants and, in aligning himself with Calvinists, he alienated himself from the provinces’ majority moderate Protestants and Catholics alike. At complaints from the states, Elizabeth conferred the command of the armies to Maurice, second son of the late Prince of Orange, during a period while Leicester was absent. On his return he quit the provinces and distributed these medals. Ex Seaby Bulletin 709, 1977, £700 G S Heckett Collection, Pittsburgh, sold Sotheby 25/5/1977, lot 39, £470 hammer

Extremely fine. £1,150 The dowry that was offered with the hand of Catherine of Braganza was immense. As well as money, international trading rights in the New World and the strategically positioned port of Tangier, vitally the Portuguese ceded Bombay. It is difficult to overplay the significance of India to the history of the British Empire and therefore quite prescient that a medal celebrating Britain’s position in the world should have been struck during this reign.

Good extremely fine with attractive patina. £350 James II’s Second Declaration of Indulgence was a highly significant element in the delicate balance of religious tolerance in 17th century Britain. It granted Catholics and non-confirmists freedom to worship at home and in private chapels, repealing laws obliging conformity to the Church of England. Many Anglicans rejected the declaration on religious and legal grounds as the King was suspending laws made by parliament. Archbishop Sancroft objected publically along with seven others. They were arrested for sedition and imprisoned in the Tower, though later acquitted.

NB001

Edward Harley was the second Earl of Oxford, son of Queen Anne’s First Minister, Robert Harley. A friend of Alexander Pope and Jonathan Swift as well as a ‘close friend and constant patron’ of the antiquary and engraver George Vertue, Harley built on his father’s substantial collection of books and manuscripts building what is described in the Dictionary of National Biography as ‘the finest private library of all time’. It was his death in 1741 which prompted his then widow, Lady Henrietta Holles to sell the coin collection by auction, with the library – consisting of over 50,000 printed books, 41,000 prints and 350,000 pamphlets sold to bookseller Thomas Osborne, and the remainder being sold to the nation in 1753 and later forming the foundation collection to what is now the British Library.

The coin collection of Edward Harley, seemingly formed on his own account rather than being a continuation of his father’s work (as the Library was), contained many rarities in English, Foreign, Ancient Greek, Roman and Byzantine coins, Commemorative Medals and Seals as well as in gold, silver and bronze. There were in total, 520 lots sold over a period of 6 days, this works out at an average of 87 lots per day, evidently auctions were a much more relaxed occurrence than they are today! Despite the fact that a substantial number of coins were sold in multiple lots (of particular note is lot 57 which contains an impressive 98 coins and which is accompanied by a somewhat apologetic note explaining the reasoning behind this), many of the individual coins listed are of great importance. It is not possible to list all of the highlights but amongst them in the English series were an Edward I Groat (lot 16 – sold for £6.16.6), a Henry VII Shilling (lot 26 – sold for £13.2.6), an Edward VII Crown (lot 31 – sold for £7.17.6), a Henry VI Angel (lot 83 – sold for £10.10), a Mary Ryal (lot 99 – sold for £9.15) and both the Petition and Reddite Crowns (lots 138 and 139 – sold for £20.4 and £5.10 respectively). There were also major rarities in his collection of commemorative medals including a number of gold Medallions which all fetched notable prices including those of Henry VIII (lot 150 – sold for £9.10.6), Edward VI (lot 151 – sold for £12.15), and a gold medallion of Oliver Cromwell struck by his son on the formers death (lot 158 – sold for £11.5). Charles II is also well represented in the commemorative medal series with amongst others, his coronation medal struck by Thomas Simon (lot 162 – sold for £7.7) and one commemorating the Dutch War (lot 163 – sold for £21). In addition to these, a number of high prices were achieved for Ancient coins including an aureus of Allectus (lot 246) which fetched an astonishing £63.10.6 – the highest price of the auction. Looking through the names of the buyers it is evident that a number of notable collectors, dealers and antiquaries were in attendance on the day including Martin Folkes, Horace Walpole, Henry Young, Roger Gale, Bishop Richard Rawlinson, Lord Pembroke, Robert Bootle, and surprisingly for the day, one lady collector Mrs Katherine Bridgeman quoted by George Vertue as being ‘One of the principal collectors of English Coins in 1738’. What is particularly notable is that although coins which were not at the time deemed scarce or important sold for little more than their metal prices, the strong prices paid for those coins which were considered important indicate not only a strong market but also a number of wealthy, assertive collectors who were knowledgeable in the series, knew what they were looking for and who were content to pay considerably more than the metal price in order to add these rarities to their collections. Looking at the catalogue this way it could be argued that the Oxford sale was the first auction to really promote numismatics to a wider audience in London, if not in the UK. Although smaller collections of coins continued to appear in auctions of ‘Gentleman Conoisseurs’ right up until the turn of the nineteenth century, it is arguable that it was this sale that gave credence to the idea that there was indeed a burgeoning market for coins and that as such they were important enough to warrant auctions in their own right. This is evident given the number of numismatic auctions which were seen in the succeeding years as well as the increase in buyers, dealers as well as the number of academic works which were published from this point on. For more information see both Manville’s Auction Catalogues, Biographical Dictionary, and article in the Numismatic Circular, 1982 p. 45-47.

Richard Mead (1673-1754) was an eminent Royal Physician who in his lifetime attended to Sir Isaac Newton as well as both Queen Anne and George II. Author of a number of renowned medical texts he is most remembered for the ground breaking work, ‘A Short Discourse concerning Pestilential Contagion, and the Method to be used to prevent it’ (1720) revolutionary at the time for its understanding of contagious diseases. His decision to collect coins came rather late in life and apparently upon the prompting of his second wife whom he married in 1724. During this relatively short time he managed to build a vast collection consisting of Ancient Greek coins (this series was sold to dealers Angel Carney and Patrick Kennedy prior to the auction), Roman coins, British coins and Commemorative Medals. The present volume also details his impressive collection of Gems and Antiquities. “Mead’s sale offered the most extensive collection of coins available in London to that date and the purchasers included many well-known eighteenth century English Collectors”. Notable highlights of his collection include, on the first day two exceptionally rare Aurei, lot 17, of Pompeius (£25.0.0) and lot 19, of Brutus (£22.10.0), on the second day, lot 110, an Aureus of Allectus (£21.5.0). On the sixth day of the sale, lot 26, an Elizabeth I Portcullis Crown (£4.4.0), lot 38, a Charles II Petition Crown, “highly preserved” (£12.0.0), and lot 76, an “exquisite fine” Fifty Shilling piece of Oliver Cromwell (£9.0.0), on the seventh day, lot 21, a Twenty Pound Scottish piece of James VI described as being “A large beautiful piece” (£4.10.0), and on the eighth day, lot 48 (p.197), “An exquisite fine oval Gold Medal upon Admiral Blake’s Victory at Sea by Thomas Simon” (£21.0.0). As Manville states, ‘Many lots contained 20-40 Roman Coins, each described with full legends, which helps to explain the catalogues length of more than 200 pages for fewer than 600 lots.’ The total value of the sale realised an incredible £1,997.17.0, unheard of at this time.

“Dr Hunter’s Duplicates…as presumed” THE RARE 1777 SALES CATALOGUE CONTAINING DR HUNTER’S DUPLICATES WITH PRICES & BUYERS NAMES NB003 [Gerard, John] A Catalogue of a Valuable Collection of Antient and Modern Coins and Medals Containing Very large and Rich Series, in Gold, Silver, and Copper, of Greek Kings, Cities, and People, Roman Families, and Imperial Coins, Besides a considerable Number of Saxon, English and other modern Coins and Medals. Thursday, the 23rd of January, 1777 and the Seven following Days (Sunday excepted). Quarto, pp. 38 pages, 1-80, 1-83, 1-80, 1-81, 1-81, 1-96, 1-93, 1-93 (687) lots. Handwritten prices and buyers names throughout. Manuscript note on first free endpaper stating ‘Dr Hunters Duplicates as presumed’. Neatly bound in three quarter calf and artificial silk boards, gilt. A trifle faded and edges bumped. Endpapers very slightly foxed otherwise remarkably clean. A fine copy of a rare and important catalogue. (M&R p25) £385 The substantial numismatic collection formed by noted physician and ‘foremost medical man in London’, Dr William Hunter (17181783) was, in 1899, ‘the finest ever got together by a private individual. Its trays contain about 30,000 specimens, of which 12,000 are Greek and nearly the same number for Roman.” The collection was from the very beginning undertaken by Hunter as a public duty and was, upon his death, bequeathed to Glasgow University “for the improvement of knowledge” along with £8,000 to support and house it. This generous legacy formed the basis of what is now the Hunterian Museum. Hunter bought coins and medals from all geographic areas but was highly diligent in ‘systematically ridding himself of the many duplicates which the wholesale additions to his Cabinet naturally left upon his hands.’ As explained by Anne Robertson in SCBI No. 2., “His aim of making his collection comprehensive and free from duplicates involved him and his advisors in much toil. ‘I explained what I meant’, he wrote to one who had questioned his interpretation of the term ‘duplicate’, ‘viz. No medal was a Duplicate where there was a difference in the Dye; and two were not duplicates , when by injuries of preservation they were both necessary to make out the medal either in the figures or inscription…I was tired of the labour and would not do it again for £50”. Some of these duplicates were offered to the Royal Cabinet at Paris whilst others were sold through auction, Manville states that there were ‘five or six anonymous sales over several years’ although McDonald writes only of ‘the sale’ in 1777 (as here). Sold over a period of eight days the coins were lotted up seemingly with no consent to geographic areas or individual importance or value. Of particular note are two Ptolemaic gold Oktodrachms which sold on the seventh day (lots 62 & 65) for £27 and £36 respectively, a number of rare Roman Aurei including those of Elagabulus, Pescennius Niger, Nero and Agrippina and Drusus. In the English series there was a fine selection of English hammered gold including one Henry VIII Sovereign and an Edward VI Angel, as well as one single lot (73) on the seventh day, consisting of three Pontefract Shillings, one Carlisle Shilling and one Newark Ninepence. Also of particular interest and note are the names of those buying at the sale, many of whom were eminent people of the time or famous (or infamous) collectors and dealers. Amongst these names are coin dealer Henry Young (father of the notable and highly respected nineteenth century coin dealer Matthew), Lord Sandwich (who later sold his collection to William Hunter), agent and dealer John Thane (son-in-law to Thomas Snelling) who upon his death sold the latters collection of English coins to Samuel Tyssen, Thomas Dummer son of the MP Thomas Lee Dummer, and the substantial buyer Edward Hodsoll who also bought heavily in the sale of Richard Mead (see NB0…). One further name which features heavily is that of ‘White’, who is more than likely to be the notorious counterfeiter John White, described by J.T. Smith as, “a cunning old fox” and with whom Hunter had first dealt with a few months prior to the auction. For more information see Manvilles ‘Biographical Dictionary’ and MacDonalds ‘Greek Coins in the Hunterian Collection.’

Annotations and notes in various hands throughout. Single printed sheet loosely inserted listing each sale chronologically and by auction house with additional note stating that it is ‘almost certain’ that the catalogues listed here originated from two lots in the Bergne sale of 1873. J(ohn) B(rodribb) Bergne (1800-1873) amassed a splendid collection of coins which eventually came onto the market through Sotheby’s in 1873 and totalled over £6000. Containing a huge number of important coins and rarities, many of which had come from the major sales of the preceding years including but not limited to, those of Durrant, Dymock, Tyssen, Trattle, and Cuff, his extensive library was dispersed at the same time. This included a large number of auction catalogues, many of which had been interleaved and heavily annotated, and included in lot 1597, ‘An Extensive Series of Coin Catalogues, ranging from 1741 to 1857, partly priced and named, containing many that are rare, unbound.’ It is possible that this, lot 1597 (which was bought for £1.1.0) contained some of the catalogues herewith and which was bound at a later date. A superb selection of early sales catalogues, many highly scarce, some previously unrecorded and some with the additional advantage of containing contemporary manuscript notes as well as prices and buyers names.

Thomas Dimsdale (1758-1823) was the youngest son of eminent Physician Thomas Dimsdale (1712-1800), 1st Baron of the Russian Empire who is now perhaps best known for vaccinating Catherine II against smallpox, a deed for which he was awarded £10,000, a barony, and an annuity of £500. Dimsdale the youngest turned to banking instead of medicine and must have been successful for he managed in his lifetime to build not only a vast collection of coins but also a most impressive collection of drawings and paintings as well as a substantial library. The library was sold by Sotheby’s in the June of 1824 and the coin collection formed the second part auctioned the following month. The sale totalled an incredible £6,850 and it was recorded at the time that “The late Mr. Dimsdale’s (the banker), Greek, Roman, English, and foreign Coins and Medals in gold, silver, and copper have been selling this month, by Mr Sotheby at most extraordinary and unheard-of prices. A Queen Anne’s five guinea piece produced 34l. A five pound piece of Charles the first 40l.10s. An Oxford crown piece, with a portrait of Charles the first on horseback, and a view of the city of Oxford under the horse, 69l. A twenty shilling piece of Charles the First, 14l. Queen Elizabeth’s ryal in gold 63l. Edward the sixth’s pound sovereign 14l.” Other coins in the collection worthy of note are a Syracuse Medallion (lot 980), and a fine example of Simon’s Petition crown (lot 1187). See the Gentleman’s Magazine, 1824, ii, p 69.

(M&R p68) £145 There is some dispute over the ownership of this collection with Manville stating that some copies clearly identify it as being that of the Rev. Thomas Frederick Dymock. He goes on to state however that it is marked as ‘General Ainslie’ in one – possibly this same catalogue.

LARGE PAPER COPIES OF THE FAMOUS DURRANT AND CAMPANA COLLECTIONS PRICED AND NAMED THROUGHOUT NB009 S. Leigh Sotheby & Co. Catalogue of the Greek & Roman Coins, Composing The Truly Valulable Cabinet Formed During the Last Thirty Years by the Cavaliere Campana, of Rome. 23 rd July, 1846. Quarto, pp. 207, 1706 lots, ruled in red, priced and named throughout with some annotations. With; Catalogue of the Extensive, Exceedingly Choice, and Well Known Collection of English Coins of the Late Lieut. Colonel Durrant. 19th April, 1847. Quarto, pp. 92, 1158 lots, ruled in red, priced and named throughout. Contents of both catalogues exceptionally clean, bright and as issued. Both volumes neatly bound together in green half morocco and brown cloth boards. Raised bands, lettered in gilt. All edges gilt, marbled endpapers. Extremities rubbed and worn but still a fine set of major catalogues. The Campana sale with a contemporary manuscript note at the bottom of the preface stating that this catalogue is, ‘No. 9 of 25 copies printed on this paper’ and signed S. Leigh S & Co. The Durant sale is of the same format and it can therefore be safely assumed that both are large paper copies, and that this is why the pair were chosen to be bound together. They are nevertheless an interesting twosome when the antics of both collectors are considered (see below). Two major sales, important and scarce in any format. Rare as large paper copies. (M&R p88 & 89) £895 The Campana collection belonged to the famous archaeologist Giovanni Pietro Campana who assembled one of the greatest private collections of Greek and Roman sculpture and antiquities of the nineteenth century. A wealthy socialite whose family were responsible for the Monte di Pièta, a papal pawnshop and savings bank, Campana had courted scandal for many years as a result of the seemingly limitless funds he had for his voracious appetite for antiquities. It was however his fall out with the generally despised secretary of state (Giacomo Antonelli) which resulted in his eventual downfall. Accused of misappropriating funds Campana found himself on trial for fraud, subsequently being imprisoned on November 28 th 1857, convicted of fraud on July 5 th 1858 and later sentenced to twenty years in prison which was then commuted to exile outside of the papal territories. In a remarkable turn of events he ended up pawning his own precious collection of antique jewels whilst other areas of his monumental collections were sold off by the Papacy with items now housed in many of the major national Museums around the world including the Hermitage, the Victoria & Albert Museum, the Louvre and the New York Metropolitan Museum. The only part of Campana’s collection to actually remain in Rome were his superb collection of 456 Roman and Byzantine coins which were purchased by the Capitoline Museum in 1873 and are still housed there today. The impressive collection of coins in this catalogue fetched a sale total of £3,191 - an incredible sum at the time and consisted of many rarities particularly in the Roman series. Of particular note are; a sestertius of Drusilla bought by the British Museum (lot 68), aurei of both Domitia (lot 395) and Plotina (lot 234), a Clodius Macer denarius (lot 370) and a series of Roman Contorniate Medallions in bronze (lots 206-225). The infamous Durrant catalogue, despite containing many major coins, is perhaps more well-known for the exploits of its owner than the coins therein. A notorious coin thief and exchanger at sales, Durrant, known at the time of being up to such tricks was allowed to continue nevertheless in order to spare ‘his family’s embarrassment.’ The sale is notable, not only for the quality of the coins within but also for the names of those in attendance, Durrant’s collection contained many fine coins although the focus leant more towards condition than rarity. The Numismatic Chronicle, taking the unusual step of commenting on the auction stated that, ‘Condition…was the grand feature of the cabinet’. In the same volume but under the correspondence page, a note can be found saying, ‘We believe it needs no remark of ours to make known the fact, that in a recent sale of a somewhat extensive cabinet of coins were found many pieces that had been missed at public sales, coins in inferior preservation having been substituted.’ More recently Keith Sugden located a profusely annotated copy of the Durrant sale previously in Dymock’s possession, in which numerous annotations had been made regarding the original ownership of the coins. From this it would appear that in all, 81 coins were obtained fraudulently, many at the viewing of three sales in particular, Dimsdale, Trattle and Rich. It is therefore no surprise that condition was Durrant’s priority, it being far simpler to switch coins of differing conditions rather than doing so with those which were unique or of great rarity. A fascinating tale which still causes confusion to this day but, as Sugden states, ‘In the unfortunate circumstances where an exchange was not noticed before a previous sale, and a collector paid dearly for an inferior substituted piece, with these sort of notices he could have taken some small grain of comfort in the fact that he did at least possess a coin with a Durrant provenance’.

Catalogue of the Entire Pembroke Collection of Greek, Roman, English, Scotch, Irish and Foreign Mediæval Coins and Medals. 31st July, 1848. Octavo, pp. 325, 1500 lots. With a handwritten letter bound in at the front from Thomas Burgon to Lord Northwick drawing his attention to particular lots in the sale, particularly the series of Roman Gold, and offering his services as specialist and advisor.

Bound in three quarter calf and marbled boards. Raised bands, black morocco label to spine. Ruled in gilt. A fine association copy of this most important sale, rarely encountered particularly as here and with such a distinguished provenance. (M&R p91) £435 A founding member of the Numismatic Society of London as well as the dedicatee of the very first volume of the Numismatic Chronicle, Thomas Burgon (1787-1858) was originally an archaeologist who later joined the British Museum as a specialist of Greek coins. He was called upon by Sotheby’s to assist in cataloguing certain collections of coins, the most well-known of which were the Pembroke sale and that of Thomas Thomas in 1844.

THE FOUNDER OF SUBMARINE TELEGRAPHY – THE JOHN WATKINS BRETT SALE OF 1864 NB011 Christie, Manson & Woods. The Illustrated Catalogue of the Valuable Collection of Pictures, and Other Works of Art of The Egyptian, Greek, Roman and Medieval Periods; Also a Choice Collection of Coins and Medals of that eminent Connoisseur, John Watkins Brett, Esq. 5 th April, 1864. Quarto, pp. 146, 2059 lots; 43 superb early photographic (albumen) prints each with tissue guard. Handsomely bound in full green cloth, front board decorated in gilt, the back blind-embossed. Lettered in gilt, all edges gilt. Edges bumped, cloth starting to peel at spine, nevertheless a fine copy with clean, bright contents. The first three days of sales (non-numismatic) priced in a neat contemporary hand with some buyers names. With many important coins including a good selection of Greek and Roman gold, many fine English coins including a 1643 Triple Unite and a fine collection of historical medals with many rarities, a highlight of which was a gold medal of Elizabeth I commemorating the defeat of the Spanish Armada and of which there are only two known in gold. (M&R p119) £350 Not only a connoisseur of the arts, John Watkins Brett (1805-1863) was first and foremost a telegraphic engineer who is still remembered today as the ‘Father of submarine telegraphy’. The first to prove that the idea of transmitting electricity through underwater cables was viable, Brett managed to put his ideas into practice in 1850, despite the idea being considered too hazardous at first, with cables being laid between England and France. His ultimate goal was however the link between England and America for which he both founded and funded the Atlantic Telegraph Company. Sadly he did not live long enough to see this happen as he died in somewhat curious circumstances at the relatively young age of 58 at the Coton Hill Institute for the Insane in Stafford. An eloquent and moving obituary in the Telegraphic Journal in 1864 read; “The science of Telegraphy has lost – if I may be permitted to use the expression – the father whose fostering care controlled and developed nature’s mysterious and intangible agent, and taught the infant Submarine Telegraph first to lisp a few words across the channel in 1850, and lastly to speak across the Atlantic, and whose electric voice is now heard issuing from the depths of the ocean to the furthermost parts of the world, uniting shore to shore, annihilating time and space, and cementing amity and peace between the different nations of the earth. Surely this was a great and noble work… With a mind so essentially practical, it is rare to find associated the finer qualities of a refined taste for art; yet in the instance of Mr Brett, the intuitive gift of a painter early developed itself, and was matured by study… His gallery of the works of the Old Masters has been a source of admiration to all who have had the pleasure of viewing it. Nor was his taste only confined to pictures, as his collection of antiquities, bronzes, coins, objects of vertu and books attests. The death of this talented man has left a great blank in the circle in which he moved, for he was essentially one of nature’s own gifted gentlemen. Gentle and kind in disposition, resolute in purpose, and endowed with great natural talent and vigour of mind.”

Despite this a still attractive copy of this fine book, the only record of this portion of Montagu’s magnificent collection, particularly notable for his fine collection of patterns and proofs which was sold by Spink prior to the series of auctions.

Ruled in red ink and neatly priced with buyers names throughout, running totals are given on each page with the total sale amount calculated at the end. A stunning set of catalogues, highly important and scarce but this set with the added attraction of being Lockett’s own and with his larger and more intricately engraved ex-libris on the first pastedown of each volume. Evidently used by Lockett as a working reference as the coins with a Montagu pedigree which were bought throughout his years collecting have been underlined with much care and attention in red ink. Lockett managed to reunite well over 200 of some of Montagu’s most prestigious coins, (mostly Anglo-Saxon and early hammered with a number being unique and many more of extreme rarity), a quite remarkable achievement and something which simply would not be possible today. Not only a major set of catalogues and an essential reference, but also a wonderful record of the numismatic career of one of the most famous collectors of the nineteenth century. Unique thus.

Consisting of almost 60,000 coins the vast collection included; English, Scottish and Continental, Early British and Gaulish, Anglo-Saxon, Norman, Irish & Anglo-Gallic, English Pattern & Proofs, Greek, Roman & Byzantine as well as coins from France, Italy, Germany, Austria, Hungary, Switzerland, Belgium, Holland, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Livonia, Finland, Poland, Russia, the Balkan States, Bulgaria, Romania, Montenegro, as well as those from the Middle East and Oriental.

In attendance at all the major sales during that time and having the choice of coins which went through Baldwins’ hands, he amassed a hugely important collection of English gold and silver, hammered and milled including a Charles II pattern crown in gold (lot 265), a beautiful example of the Petition crown (lot 268) as well as the finest known specimen of the Reddite Crown (lot 269). The remainder of Lingford’s collection was purchased by Baldwin’s after the second sale and according to Peter Mitchell was still in the premises over twenty years later when the Ashmolean Museum were able to select no less than 136 coins of Henry VII. The Raynes sale again contained many important rarities in the English series and had been formed by an ancestor of William Raynes many years before between 1780 and 1820. Amongst the highlights were two Henry VIII Sovereign’s one with the dragon mint mark the other with the lis (lots 58 & 59), a George Noble (lot 75), an Edward VI third period angel (lot 100), a Mary Ryal (lot 109), a James I Spur Ryal (lot 175) and a fine 1644 Triple Unite with the Murdoch provenance (lot 268).

One of the most important series of sales to have come to auction, strong in all areas but particularly notable for the English and Greek series, the latter of which was extensive enough to warrant the five volume Sylloge Nummorum Graecorum series of his name and of which the preface notes, “is a general collection of the old-fashioned type, formed in the tradition of Bunbury and Hermann Weber, not confined to any one district of the Greek world yet abounding in long series and in fine coins.” It was with this approach in mind that Lockett formed his entire collection and is why the catalogues of his sales are so highly sought after and are such an important addition to any library.

A UNIQUE MANUSCRIPT CATALOGUE OF CARLYON-BRITTON’S COLLECTION OF ENGLISH HAMMERED GOLD COINS NB041 Carlyon-Britton, P. W. P. Catalogue of the CarlyonBritton Collection of Hammered English Gold Coins. 12571662. (May, 1913). Volume I. Henry III to Richard III, 1216 to 1485. Volume II. Henry VII to Elizabeth I, 1485 to 1602. (It is clear however that Carlyon-Britton initially intended the collection to end with Charles II; this however has been crossed out and Elizabeth is written in pencil instead). Both volumes bound in the same format. Quarto, pp. 6 pages of handwritten lists (written on verso’s only), (18), 80 unopened pages of thicker paper each with 6 moveable tabs per page, (1), (20). Bound in three quarter morocco and cloth boards. Marbled endpapers, top edges gilt. Carlyon-Britton’s armorial ex-libris on the first pastedown of each volume. A fascinating catalogue of CarlyonBritton’s superb, and otherwise unrecorded collection of English hammered gold. Although Carlyon-Britton began recording details of his purchases in these volumes in May 1913 (as is dated in his hand) the earliest acquired piece in the collection is recorded as being bought on the 26th November 1910 with the last entry dated the 10th January 1918. Most coins, in fact a very substantial amount, were acquired at a remarkable pace between the years 1912 and 1913. The first few pages of each volume are detailed lists numbering and giving the date each coin was bought along with the price being asked (where appropriate) and interestingly, the price Carlyon-Britton actually paid. Provenances are also given where known and notes detailing if a coin was exchanged. Each coin is neatly written up in red and black, individually and on moveable tabs - so that new NB041 additions could be neatly slotted into their correct place. They are organised firstly into chronological and then denominational order with full obverse and reverse legends, mint marks, weights in grains and any other relevant notes given. There are in total, details given for over 450 coins, many of which are of supreme rarity and importance. The fact that Carlyon-Britton was able to purchase such a large quantity of hammered gold in such a short space of time (essentially just over two years) is almost unthinkable 100 years later where in today’s market quality hammered gold coins are considerably scarcer. What is also notable is that a collector new to the series would have the funds to purchase so heavily over such a short period of time, although this could be in part thanks to the proceeds of his superb collection of British Celtic, Romano-British, Anglo-Saxon and Norman coins which were sold through Sotheby’s in 1913. The catalogues for his collections show that he was a collector with great taste and judgement and the preface to his 1913 sales states that he collected with “boundless patience and enthusiasm” and sold only because it was becoming increasingly difficult to add to, and not because his interest in the subject had waned. A reference to his seemingly quite sudden interest in hammered gold may also be found in this preface where it states that, “he decided to devote his attention to the formation of a collection of another series of English coins, in the study of which one of his sons had developed an interest.” It is possible that the son in question, rather than being the more well-known Raymond Carlyon-Britton, was actually Philips eldest son, Winstanley, who was recruited into the army in 1914 and was killed in action in France in September 1917. This would go some way in explaining the reduction in purchases in October 1914, when his military service began, and the almost complete cessation of purchases after his death. Unfortunately no other record of the collection (illustrated or otherwise) remains. It is known that some 265 coins were acquired by the British Museum via the Goldsmith’s Company in 1920 but the exact circumstances of the collections dispersal is unknown, as is the whereabouts of the remainder of the coins listed herewith. It is possible that, not wishing to continue the collection without his son, Philip decided to let the Goldsmith’s Company act as an agent for him and disperse the collection privately rather than seeing it sold publicly through auction – as his other collections had been. Whatever the circumstances, these volumes provide a detailed and informative first-hand account of an otherwise unknown major collection, formed and written by a notable collector and great numismatist of the time. Unique and of the utmost importance. P. W. P. Carlyon-Britton (1863-1938) was a leading light in the numismatic world and alongside W. Andrew and L. A. Lawrence was a founding member of the British Numismatic Society. He wrote prolifically in, amongst others, the Numismatic Chronicle, Spink’s Numismatic Circular and particularly the British Numismatic Journal. Many of his articles are still used as standard references today, as indeed are the auction catalogues of his collection, sold through Sotheby’s between 1913 and 1918, which still serve as an inspiration to modern-day collectors. £4,250 (For further information see Manville’s Biographical Dictionary p.50; BNJ 1917, p.242; BNJ 2001, p.144).

A SUBSTANTIAL RUN OF EARLY SOTHEBY’S SALES FROM THE LIBRARY OF CARLYON-BRITTON NB042 A substantial run of 96 early sales catalogues bound into 9 volumes and dating from between 1828-1890. Issued mainly by Sotheby’s but also with those of Christie & Manson, Chapman & Son, Mr Dowell, Mr Hoggart and Mr Philips. The catalogues are predominantly numismatic but some fascinating sales of antiquities are also included from which it would seem that the collections of the British Museum were built. The run contains many highly important and scarce sales including those of Marmaduke Trattle, Matthew Young, the Duke of Devonshire, Thomas Thomas, John Bergne, and James Wingate to name a few. Many have been annotated with prices and buyers names and a number contain fascinating contemporary notes in a variety of different hands. These include those of Robert Carfrae, Charles Roach Smith and another, identifiable only by the initials ‘WR’. It is possible that these catalogues came from the collection of Charles Roach Smith which was sold by Sotheby’s on the 3rd July 1891. Since that time the set has been in the collection of P.W.P. Carlyon-Britton and consequently all the volumes have his distinctive ex-libris on the first pastedown of each volume. A magnificent run of sales, many with fewer than five copies recorded and a handful unique and with much valuable, contemporary information included which is unobtainable elsewhere. It is exceptionally rare for a run of catalogues like this to be offered for sale and as such, their importance cannot be emphasised more highly.

An additional printed note states that, ‘Also listed for sale here, and by private treaty, and in one lot are ‘15 cabinets of Coins in Gold, Silver, and Brass, of the Roman, Greek and Saxon Orders collected by the late Marmaduke Trattle’. It would seem perhaps that not being familiar with the coin trade, and perhaps aware of the magnitude and importance of the collection, Hoggart passed it over to Sotheby’s who auctioned it the following year – see below.
