Sam Maling was a much loved and respected medical practitioner in Christchurch, where he was also recognized as an expert on early Canterbury colonial history. He was educated at Christ’s College and in 1930 he entered Canterbury College, one of the four colleges that constituted the University of New Zealand, where he was the sole student majoring in Geology and Zoology. He won Senior University and Sir George Grey scholarships, graduating in 1933 with a Master of Science (Hons) thesis on the geology of the Kakahu district. After postgraduate study in the Royal School of Mines, London, he worked as a geologist with the Anglo Iranian Oil Company from 1935-36 and it was whilst exploring and mapping the wilds of Luristan that he developed a keen interest in cartography. Oil exploration in those days was extremely demanding and after two years in the field he returned to London, switched to medicine and began training at St Thomas’ Hospital. His passion for early New Zealand exploration and natural history took root when he started to buy and sell early maps and charts to put himself through medical school. Some of the books in his collection today were purchased at this time. When St Thomas’ was bombed in 1940 during the London blitz, he was awarded the George Medal for his part in extracting patients and staff from the wreckage. He later joined the Royal Army Medical Corps, serving in Britain, Italy and Greece and reaching the rank of captain. An unassuming, compassionate man with an intensely enquiring mind and an eye for historical detail, he is perhaps best remembered in New Zealand for his authorship of several books: The Torlesse Papers (editor, 1958); Samuel Butler at Mesopotamia (1960), Early Charts of New Zealand (1969), Early Sketches and Charts of Banks Peninsula (1981), Wanderlust: The Life Of Aline Barton, Pioneer New Zealand Airwoman (editor, 1988), and Historic Charts and Maps of New Zealand (1992). This P B Maling Early New Zealand Book Collection is presented for auction by his family in celebration of his fascinating life. The Maling family. 4

In 1839 he was given command of the present expedition, the purpose of which was to conduct magnetic research and to try to reach the south magnetic pole. On this famous voyage, Ross circumnavigated the Antarctic continent, discovered the Ross Sea, the Ross Ice Shelf, Victoria Land, Erebus and Terror Gulf (named after the ships of the expedition), Mount Erebus, and attempted to penetrate the Weddell Sea. The expedition also visited the Crozet Islands, Kerguelen Island, Tasmania, Australia, New Zealand, Campbell Island, and the Falkland Islands.

Fearon, Percy, (Poy) A Collection of Signed Cards & Cartoons Etc 49 items, chiefly WWII Christmas cards, many signed and inscribed, also other humorous cards, some with Nelson links, letters, a cartoon booklet, etc. Born in Shanghai, Percy Fearon (Poy) studied art in New York and Bushey, Hertfordshire. Principal cartoonist on Judy from 1879-98, he then joined the Manchester Evening Chronicle (1905-07), Daily Dispatch and Sunday Chronicle (1907-13). In 1913 he moved to London and became a contributor to the Evening News and the Daily Mail until 1939. Amongst Fearon’s most famous creations were John Citizen, Cuthbert the First World War conscientious objector, Government Gus and Dora, the latter personifying the 1914 Defence of the Realm Act. His pen name was said to derive from the American pronunciation of his first name, Poycee, whilst he was in New York, later shortened to Poy. When he finally retired from cartooning in 1938 after 34 unbroken years of daily work he estimated that since joining the Manchester Evening Chronicle he had produced 10,000 cartoons which he considered “a record for a political cartoonist”. He died on 5th November 1948. $1,500 - 2,500 Friedlander, Adolph, (Lithographer) Nouma-Hama La Premeire dompteuse du monde, replica chromolithographic poster.

579 Tsar Nicholas II & Empress Alexandra A Pair of Signed Photographs 1914 An exceptionally rare pair of signed sepia photographs of Tsar Nicholas II & Empress Alexandra Feodorovna. The Tsar’s photo signed Nicolas 1914 and inscribed to the ward room officers and shows Nicholas in full officers regalia, the Empress photograph signed Alexandra June 1914, both on blind stamped paper with the trade mark of Boissonas Et Eggler of St Petersburg both in gilt frames with crown mounts. Whilst these frames are replacements, the lot comes with the original frames which are as found. Provenance: From the date of June 1914 and the inscription at the top of the Tsar’s photograph we can assume the photos were gifted to the officers of the British battle cruiser “Lion”. Page 253 of Robert K Massie’s book Nicholas and Alexander reads; “An event of special symbolic significance took place at the end of June when the dashing British Admiral Sir David Beatty led the First Battle Cruiser Squadron of the Royal Navy up the Baltic on a visit to Russia. England, alarmed by the rapid building of the Kaiser’s powerful High Seas Fleet, was reluctantly abandoning a century of “splendid isolation”. A closer tie with Tsarist Russia, hitherto despised in press and parliament as the land of the Cossack and the knout, was part of Britain’s new diplomacy. On June 20, a blazing, cloudless day, Beatty’s four huge grey ships, Lion, Queen Mary, Princess Royal and New Zealand, steamed slowly past the Standart and anchored at Kronstadt. The Imperial family went aboard Beatty’s flagship, Lion, for lunch. “Never have I seen happier faces than those of the young grand duchesses escorted over Lion by a little band of middies especially told off for their amusement,” reported the British Ambassador, Sir George Buchanan. “When I think of them as I saw them that day”, he added “the tragic story of their deaths seems like a hideous nightmare”. Both images are faded, as are the signatures, the mount on the Tsar’s photo has old water staining chiefly around the margins, with some foxing on the Empress photo. The photos measure 19.5cm by 14cm, and 37cm by 27cm overall, excluding the crown. $10,000 - 20,000
