Béchard produced some of the most well-composed and endearing photographs of Egypt. They are rarer than photos by Sebah, Bonfils, Arnoux and Zangaki, as the studio only worked from the 1870s-1880s, whereas the other studios were still producing work throughout the 1890s. The prints offered here are signed by H.(enri) Béchard but prints signed by Émile Béchard, who might have been his brother or even the same person, also exist. Lit.: Ken Jacobson.

The Prussian baron Alexander von Minutoli (1806-87) often sent his model collection to schools of the applied arts. The objects, however, suffered from this treatment. Thus he commissioned photographic reproductions to circulate instead. In 1853 Minutoli engaged Ludwig Belitski to make photographic reproductions on paper. Belitski was a photographer from Liegnitz in Silesia (now Legnica, Poland). He earned international fame from Minutoli’s large commission (seven folio-sized volumes with 663 plates were produced) and won awards in Brussels and Amsterdam in 1855 and 1856.

tommaso cuccioni or james anderson (1790 – 1864, 1813 – 1877)
4036^ Flooded Piazza Navona, Rome. 1858/circa 1862.
Large-format albumen print. 31 x 40 cm. Mounted to board (time-staining in edges). 1.500 €
As of 1830 Tommaso Cuccioni was active in Rome as a lithographer and publisher of prints and had his studio in the central location of via Condotti which was frequented by many tourists. The invention of photography offered an ideal mode of producing souvenir views. Cuccioni began photographing as of 1852, specializing in large-format views of the ruins in Rome. Not many of these prints remain and the present print is exceptionally large and rare. This is a rare photograph of Piazza Navona and the Bernini Fountain flooded with water. Until 1866, when the festival was suppressed, it was flooded on every Saturday and Sunday in August in elaborate celebrations of the Pamphilj family.

Daguerreotype (sixth-plate), with ornate black mat with gilt ornamentation, taped behind glass and in modern frame. 500 € Johann Eberhard Feilner was a lithographer in Cologne until he followed his brother Franz to Bremen who had a printing press there since 1825. Here he married and established himself as of 1832 as a portrait painter and drawing teacher. As of 1844 he founded a studio for daguerreotypes in 1844 and in 1845 already advertised exceptionally large daguerreotypes. For almost two decades Feilner remained the most renowned photographer of the region who was also the first to establish himself permanently in Bremen. After his death in 1869 his son Jean Baptiste Feilner continued the business, establishing branches in Braunschweig, Emden, Oldenburg, Borkum, Bonn, Koblenz, Hannover and Vienna. The Bremen studio continued until 1894.
4039 Photographer: Johann Jacob Burbach (active in Cologne since 1846). Individual portraits of a man and woman, most likely husband and wife. Circa 1850. 2 daguerreotypes (sixth-plates), with black enamellled surrounds with gilt frame line, each taped behind glass and with photographer’s paper studio label on the verso. 500 € Along with Haussmann and Hertting, J.J.

In glass enameled mount with modern glass and paper sealing. 8.000 € Braquehais’s early photographs consist primarily of portraits and female nudes, many of which were colored by his wife, Laure. His photographs of the Paris Commune document the event at its height and after its fall and are considered early examples of photojournalism. Art critics have pointed out that many of Braquehais’s photographs of female nudes are full with distracting objects, giving the model the appearance of being isolated. The piece offered here is an amazingly modern nude in which the sitter looks relaxed, natural and free of any excess clutter. A comparable daguerreotype by Braquehais is in the collection of the Museo nationale del Cinema, Turin (Inv. No. F39960). 31

4044 “Firing for the Queen’s prize. A good beginn ing, two centres” (No. 63).1860. Albumen print. 12,5 x 28 cm. Mounted to original board (some repaired tears in edges), title and no. in pencil below the image as well as letterpress with photographer’s name below the image on the mount, with mat. 2.000 € Born in Lancashire, Fenton initially trained as a lawyer and then as an artist before taking up photography in 1852. Over the next ten years, he undertook several extensive journeys with his camera and he was instrumental in founding the Photographic Society of London in 1853. Fenton worked in a variety of genres, producing portraits, still life, architecture, landscape and documentary photographs.
Fenton first met Queen Victoria and Prince Albert in January 1854 at an exhibition of the Photographic Society. Shortly afterwards he was asked to go to Buckingham Palace to photograph the royal family. Several commissions followed in 1854 and 1856, including a journey to Balmoral to photograph the royal children and the newly rebuilt castle. Fenton had a highly successful career as a photographer, which included photographing the Crimean War in 1855. However, he retired from photography completely in 1862 and returned to his first profession of law. The image offered here was taken on the occasion of the inaugural meeting of the National Rifle Association in Wimbledon 2 July, 1860. There are not many extant prints of this event, especially a total view as in this print which is rare. Provenance: Robert Lebeck Collection

john k. hillers a nd unknow n (1843 – 1925)
Yellowstone Falls and Mammoth Hot Springs, “Shinimo Altar from Brink of Marble Canyon of the Colorado River, Arizona”; “Navajo Church near Fort Wingate, New Mexico”. 1870s. 5 albumen prints. Each circa 33 x 25 cm. 2 with photographer’s name (Hillers) and title in the negative in lower corners, each mounted to board (some soiling/ foxing). 1.800 €
John K. Hillers began making photographs while exploring the terrain around the Colorado River in 1871. Part of a survey team led by John Wesley Powell, a geologist and ethnologist, Hillers was originally hired as a boatman. He became increasingly interested in the work of the team’s photographer, began acting as his assistant, and by 1872 had become the expedition photo grapher. From the 1870s until about 1900, Hillers continued working for Powell, who became the first director of the U.S. Bureau of Ethnology. The emphasis of Hillers’s work gradually shifted from geology and geography to archaeology and ethnology. He spent almost twenty years exploring the Indian Territories, California, the Southwest, and the Southeast, eventually producing a sensitive record of Native Americans and their way of life. The Bureau of Ethnology and Geological Survey publi cations reproduced his work, and examples also appeared at numerous international expositions.

Each circa 28 x 38 cm and smaller.

Between 1861-1865 Molins worked together with Altobelli. Both were trained painters who turned to photography. The presence of multi-figure staffage in many of their photographs points to their background as painters. As Molins’ daughter was married to a Papal supplier, he had good connections to the Papal State. He therefore was permitted to photograph Pope Pius IX, whose portrait is at the beginning of the album. In 1893 Molins’ photo studio, in which John Henry Parker’s negative archive was also stored, was completely destroyed by a fire in Palazzo NegroniCaffarelli. The present album contains stunning views of architecture in Rome and other areas in Italy.

naturselbstdrucke 4063 Plant studies: “Cardobenedicten” (plate 44); “Odermennige” (plate 50) Johannes Hieronymus Kniphof. (1704 - 1763). 2 Naturselbstdrucke (nature prints) on thin laid paper. Each circa 34 x 20,5 cm. From the first edition of “Johannes Hieronymus Kniphof ’s Botanica Originali das ist Lebendig-Officinal-Kräuterbuch ... “, Erfurt, J.M. Funcke, 1733. 900 € Johann Hieronymus Kniphof attended the Ratsgymnasium in Erfurt in 1719/22 and then studied in Jena and Erfurt. In 1737 he became professor of medicine, in 1747 dean of the medical faculty and in 1761 rector of the University of Erfurt. He held this office until his death.
Kniphof is mainly known as a botanist. He created a large herbarium which is considered a classic of nature self-printing. His plant prints attracted a lot of attention. Although Kniphof was not the inventor of this printing technique, he did continue to comprehensively develop it. His main work “Botanica in Originali Pharmaceutica”, a “Living Officinal Herb Book”, was published in 1733. Still today little is known about the then new preparation and printing technique used by Kniphof, as he did not reveal any details about the process. It remains Kniphof ’s secret how, for example, he was able to print round objects such as cabbages, turnips and radishes from the original objects.

Salt print on thin paper, unmounted. 25,5 x 29,8 cm. 1.000 € The Battle of the Great Redan was a major battle during the Crimean War, fought between British forces against Russia from June 18 to September 8, 1855 as part of the Siege of Sevastopol. The French army successfully stormed the Malakoff entrenchment, whereas a simultaneous British attack on the Great Redan to the south of the Malakoff was averted. Contemporary commentators have suggested that, although the Redan became so important to the Victorians, it was probably not vital to the taking of Sevastopol. 53

“The Golden Gate” is one of the most important gates because of its special meaning for all three religions - Judaism, Christianity and Islam. According to Jewish tradition, the Messiah will enter the city through this gate. According to Christian tradition, Jesus came through this gate on his last visit to Jerusalem, and Muslims believe that this will be the place of judgment. This gate has been sealed for hundreds of years, and it is said that it will open miraculously upon the coming of the Messiah and the resurrection of the dead. 57

This image appeared as plate 3 in Sun Pictures in Scotland. Abbotsford was the home of Sir Walter Scott. Talbot’s hope for commercial exploitation of his invention lay in the widespread distribution of large editions of photographic prints, the principal advantage of negative-positive process over the daguerreotype. In early 1844, in an effort to encourage the mass production of paper photographs, Talbot supported Nicolaas Henneman, his former valet, in the creation of a photographic printing establishment in Reading, a town on the route between London and his home in Lacock. The firm’s initial project was Talbot’s “Pencil of Nature”, the first commercially published book illustrated with photographs. Provenance: Robert Lebeck Collection

Charles Thurston Thompson’s career was based at the South Kensington Museum (now the Victoria and Albert Museum), where he was the superintendent of photography beginning in 1856, as well as the official photographer of the Department of Science and Art. Thompson left behind approximately ten thousand negatives when he died in 1868, however, original prints of his are quite rare. Soon after, the Arundel Society for Promoting the Knowledge of Art published twenty of his photographs taken in 1866 in the volume “The Cathedral of Santiago de Compostella in Spain” as the one offered here. This publication is held by fewer than ten libraries in the United States, as well as a comparable copy in the British Library, London. It is a rare complete copy of this volume and a fine example of earlier architectural photography.

He said, ‚Lieutenant, davai, let‘s hurry up and climb onto the roof with the flag‘ ... We started out, but all the stairs were badly damaged. When we finally got up the Reichstag was on fire. ...We found a long
pole. I spent lots of time trying out different compositions. I took one picture from the left, but that wasn‘t any good. I wanted Berlin to be clearly visible in the picture. Then I said, ‚Boys, go and stand over there and raise the flag ... then try over there‘. There were three of them. One was from the Ukraine, the other from Machatshkala in Dagestan and the third was a Russian. ... I shot a whole roll of film, 36 shots“ (cited in Volland/Krimmer, p. 151).

mühle Baryta paper. 90 x 120 cm (113 x 140 cm). Signed, titled, dated and editioned 1/3 by the photographer in pencil and photographer‘s stamp on the verso. 3.500 € Vincenzo Laera began his creative career in the 1980s in the fashion industry of his hometown of Milan. Trained as a hair stylist, he began working as a freelancer for magazines such as Lei and Per Lui early on, and collaborated regularly with South African photographer Koto Bolofo. In the late 1980s, Laera, just 20 years old, became a member of Helmut Newton‘s team. In 1989, he moved to New York City. Up until 2005, Laera collaborated on projects with Newton and photographers like Albert Watson, Irving Penn, Brigitte Lacombe, Deborah Tuberville, Bert Stern, Greg Gorman, and Annie Leibovitz. During this time, Laera began to work on his own photography. In 2006, when he moved
to Berlin, he became self-employed as a professional photographer. Laera worked for magazines like Icon, GQ, Spiegel, InStyle or Kaltblut. Laera‘s photography is dedicated to the exploration of the male body, beauty and eros. It reflects the experiences he has made with the icons of fashion photography. His work is also influenced by the black-and-white aesthetic that photographers such as Bruce Weber or Herb Ritts established in the 1980s and 1990s. At the same time, Laera‘s work is determined by the intensive examination of art and cultural history. Raised in a Catholic family, his work references the traditions of Christian iconography, Italian Renaissance and early Baroque art. His experiments with light and shadow emphasize the sculptural aspect of the body and its connection with the architectural surroundings. Many of Laera‘s series oscillate between documentation and staging, control and spontaneity.

Photographer‘s 1163 Euclid Avenue Berkeley California stamp on the verso. 7.500 € This photograph points to Dorothea Lange‘s strong sense of composition, which prevails throughout her documentary images so that many have become icons of a certain time or movement in American history. Although this was taken in the middle of a strike the police officer appears calm and composed and the people behind him are lined up in an orderly fashion. Lange made this photograph of a labor strike while working with the economist Paul Taylor, who would become her second husband.
Taylor was covering the General Strike of 1934 for the social welfare journal Survey Graphic. Lange‘s interest in the plight of laborers during the Great Depression began as she witnessed its evidence from her studio window. She began making photographs of breadlines, labor demonstrations, and strikes like the one seen here. Initially Lange said she did not know what she would do with such images, but she continued with her direct response to what she saw, eventually focusing entirely on documentary photography.

NASA‘s Project Gemini was designed to test technologies and techniques for the Apollo Program. The two-man Gemini spacecraft was larger and more sophisticated than its Mercury predecessor. The spacecraft was designed by a team of NASA engineers led by Jim Chamberlin, and built by McDonnell Aircraft, in St Louis. There were two uncrewed test flights (1964, 1965) and 10 crewed (March 23, 1965 until November 11-15, 1966) all launched on a Titan II missile. The Gemini flights helped NASA learn to work and live in space, paving the way for the successful Apollo human landings on the Moon. Gemini IV was the mission on which Ed White undertook America‘s first historic space walk. Lit.: Ron Schick and Julia Van Haaften. The View from Space, American Astronaut Photography 1962-1972. 1988.

Thomas Ruff ‘s oeuvre is exceptionally diverse while still follow ing a continuous artistic line. Interested early on in the technical side of photography, Ruff experimented not only with the camera and the lens, but was also interested in various modes of depiction. In his „Nudes“ series, Ruff used pornographic images from the internet and reworked them digitally to create anonymous images in which the pornographic content is still visible yet removed from its original context. Referring to this series, the inside flap of the dustjacket of the book Nudes states: „He gathers from that virtual playground erotic and often pornographic images that he subsequently manipulates on his computer by enlarging, coloring and blurring them. The end result is beautiful yet disturbing artwork from visual material that, for better or worse, is probably more abundant than any other type of image in our world today. In contrast to Ruff ‘s earlier portraits, in which he highlighted every detail of his subject down to the last pore, these photographs have an abstract, often ethereal quality that at first glance belies their erotic content.“ Lit.: Matthias Winzen.

V ER ST EIGERU NG S - BEDI NGU NGEN 1. Die Nicolaas Teeuwisse-Tilman Bassenge Foto-Auktionen GbR, nachfolgend Versteigerer genannt, versteigert als Kommissionärin im eigenen Namen und für Rechnung ihrer Auftraggeber (Kommittenten), die unbenanntbleiben. Die Versteigerung ist freiwillig und öffentlich im Sinne des § 383 III BGB. 2. Der Versteigerer behält sich das Recht vor, Nummern des Kataloges zu vereinen, zu trennen, außerhalb der Reihenfolge anzubieten oder zurückzuziehen. 3. Sämtliche zur Versteigerung kommenden Gegenstände können vor der Versteigerung besichtigt und geprüft werden. Die Sachen sind gebraucht. Erhaltungszustände der einzelnen angebotenen Arbeiten bleiben im Katalog in der Regel unerwähnt. Die Katalogbeschreibungen sind keine Garantien im Rechtssinne und keine vertraglich vereinbarten Beschaffenheitsangaben. Gleiches gilt für individuell angeforderte Zustandsberichte. Sie bringen nur die subjektive Einschätzung des Versteigerers zum Ausdruck und dienen lediglich der unverbindlichen Orientierung. Alle Gegenstände werden in dem Erhaltungszustand veräußert, in dem sie sich bei Erteilung des Zuschlages befinden. Soweit nicht in der Katalogbeschreibung explizit erwähnt, sind Rahmungen nicht bindender Bestandteil des Angebots. Der Käufer kann den Versteigerer nicht wegen Sachmängeln in Anspruch nehmen, wenn dieser seine Sorgfaltspflichten erfüllt hat. Der Versteigerer verpflichtet sich jedoch, wegen rechtzeitig vorgetragener, begründeter Mängelrügen innerhalb der Verjährungsfrist von 12 Monaten ab dem Zeitpunkt des Zuschlags seine Ansprüche gegenüber dem Einlieferer (Auftraggeber) geltend zu machen. Im Falle erfolgreicher Inanspruchnahme des Einlieferers erstattet der Versteigerer dem Erwerber den Kaufpreis samt Aufgeld. Die Haftung des Versteigerers auf Schadensersatz für Vermögensschäden – gleich aus welchem Grund – ist ausgeschlossen, es sei denn, dem Versteigerer fiele Vorsatz oder grobe Fahrlässigkeit zur Last. Die Haftung bei Verletzung von Leben, Körper und Gesundheit bleibt unberührt. 4. Der Zuschlag erfolgt nach dreimaligem Aufruf an den Höchst bietenden. Der Versteigerer kann den Zuschlag verweigern oder unter Vorbehalt erteilen. Wenn mehrere Personen dasselbe Gebot abgeben und nach dreimaligem Aufruf kein höheres Gebot erfolgt, entscheidet das Los. Der Versteigerer kann den Zuschlag zurücknehmen und die Sachen erneut ausbieten, wenn irrtümlich ein rechtzeitig abgegebenes höheres Gebot übersehen worden ist oder wenn der Höchstbietende sein Gebot nicht gelten lassen will oder sonst Zweifel über den Zuschlag bestehen. 5. Im Falle eines schriftlichen Gebotes beauftragt der Interessent den Versteigerer für ihn während der Versteigerung Gebote abzugeben. In schriftlichen Aufträgen ist bei Differenzen zwischen Nummer und Kennwort das Kennwort maßgebend. 6. Telefonische Gebote und Online-Direkt-Gebote über das Internet bedürfen der vorherigen Anmeldung beim Versteigerer und dessen Zustimmung. Für die Bearbeitung übernimmt der
Versteigerer jedoch keine Gewähr. Telefonische und OnlineGebote werden nur akzeptiert, wenn der Bieter bereit ist, den ihm zuvor mitgeteilten Mindestpreis des jeweiligen Loses zu bieten. Auch bei Nichtzustandekommen einer Verbindung gilt, dass für den Auktionator dieses Gebot in Höhe des Mindestpreises verbindlich ist. Für das Zustandekommen einer entsprechenden Telefon- oder Onlineverbindung übernimmt der Versteigerer keine Gewähr. Das Widerrufs- und Rückgaberecht bei Fernabsatzverträgen findet auf solche Gebote keine Anwendung (§ 312d Abs. 4 Nr. 5 BGB). 7. Mit der Erteilung des Zuschlages geht die Gefahr für nicht zu vertretende Verluste und Beschädigung auf den Ersteigerer über. Das Eigentum an den ersteigerten Sachen geht erst mit vollstän digem Zahlungseingang an den Erwerber über. 8. Auf den Zuschlagspreis ist ein Aufgeld von 28% zu entrichten, in dem die Umsatzsteuer ohne separaten Ausweis enthalten ist (Differenzbesteuerung) oder ein Aufgeld von 23% auf den Zuschlag zzgl. der USt von z.Zt. 19% (Regelbesteuerung), bei Büchern beträgt die Umsatzsteuer 7% (Regelbesteuerung).Die im Katalog mit einem * gekennzeichneten Objekte unterliegen in jedem Fall der Regelbesteuerung (Aufgeld von 23% auf den Zuschlag zzgl. der USt von z.Zt. 19%). Bei den im Katalog mit einem ^ gekennzeichneten Objekten ist Einfuhrumsatzsteuer angefallen. In diesen Fällen wird zusätzlich zu einem Aufgeld von 25% (Differenzbesteuerung) die verauslagte Einfuhrumsatzsteuer in Höhe von z.Zt. 7% auf den Zuschlag erhoben. Für bundesdeutsche Kunsthändler und Antiquare, die zum Vors teuerabzug berechtigt sind, kann die Gesamtrechnung auf Wunsch, wie bisher nach der Regelbesteuerung ausgestellt werden. Von der Umsatzsteuer befreit sind Ausfuhrlieferungen in Dritt länder (außerhalb der EU) und – bei Angabe ihrer USt.-Identi fikations-Nr. bei Auftragserteilung als Nachweis der Berechtigung zum Bezug steuerfreier innergemeinschaftlicher Lieferungen – auch an Unternehmen in anderen EU-Mitgliedsstaaten, unter der Voraussetzung, dass sie für gewerblichen Gebrauch einkaufen. Eine Korrektur nach Rechnungsstellung ist nicht möglich. Alle anderen Käufe aus EU-Ländern unterliegen der Umsatzsteuer. Ausländischen Käufern außerhalb der Europäischen Union wird die Umsatzsteuer erstattet, wenn binnen 4 Wochen nach der Auktion der deutsche zollamtliche Ausfuhrnachweis und der zollamt liche Einfuhrnachweis des entsprechenden Importlandes erbracht werden. Bei Versand durch uns gilt der Ausfuhrnachweis als gegeben. Bei Online-Live-Geboten über externe Internetplattformen erhöht sich das Aufgeld um die dort anfallende Transaktionsgebühr. Während oder unmittelbar nach der Auktion ausgestellte Rech nungen bedürfen einer besonderen Nachprüfung und eventueller Berichtigung; Irrtum vorbehalten. 9. Die Auslieferung der ersteigerten Stücke erfolgt in unseren Ge schäftsräumen gegen Bezahlung. Kreditkarten (Mastercard, VISA, American Express), Schecks sowie andere unbare Zahlungen werden nur erfüllungshalber angenommen. Bankspesen/
Transaktionsgebühren bzw. Kursverluste können zu Lasten des Käufers gehen. Die Auf bewahrung erfolgt auf Rechnung und Gefahr des Käufers. Der Versand wird gegen Vorabrechnung des Rechnungsbetrages ausgeführt. Die Versandspesen sowie die Kosten für Versicherung gegen Verlust und Beschädigung gehen zu Lasten des Käufers. Übersteigen die tatsächlichen Versandkosten die vorab berechnete Pauschale, so wird die Differenz dem Käufer nachträglich in Rechnung gestellt. 10. Bei der Ausfuhr von Kulturgütern aus dem Gemeinschaftsgebiet der EG ist gem. der EG-Verordnung Nr. 116/2009 abhängig von Kategorie und Wert des Objekts ggf. eine Ausfuhrgenehmigung erforderlich. Aus Gründen des Artenschutzes können Objekte aus bestimmten, geschützten Materialien (u.a. Elfenbein, Schildpatt, Perlmutt und einige Korallenarten) besonderen Im- und Exportbeschränkungen unterliegen. Zum Zwecke des Exports (insbesondere außerhalb der Europäischen Union) kann hierfür eine spezielle Ausfuhrgenehmigung gemäß der Verordnung (EG) Nr. 338/97 erforderlich sein. Entsprechende Ausfuhrgenehmigungen können nur unter strengen Bedingungen erteilt und ggf. auch gar nicht erlangt werden, auch kann der Import dieser Gegenstände in manche Staaten eingeschränkt oder untersagt sein. Der Käufer ist selbst dafür verantwortlich, sich über etwaige Im- und Exportbeschränkungen zu informieren. Export und Import entsprechender Objekte erfolgen allein auf Rechnung und Gefahr des Käufers. 11. Der Zuschlag verpflichtet zur Abnahme. Der Kaufpreis ist mit dem Zuschlag fällig. Der Versteigerer ist berechtigt, falls nicht innerhalb von zwei Wochen nach der Versteigerung Zahlung geleistet ist, den durch den Zuschlag zustande gekommenen Kaufvertrag ohne weitere Fristsetzung zu annullieren, Verzugszinsen in banküblicher Höhe – mindestens jedoch 1 % auf den Bruttopreis je angebrochenen Monat – zu berechnen und von dem Ersteigerer
wegen Nichterfüllung Schadenersatz zu verlangen. Der Schadenersatz kann in diesem Falle auch so berechnet werden, dass die Sache in einer neuen Auktion nochmals versteigert wird und der säumige Käufer für einen Mindererlös gegenüber der vorangegangenen Versteigerung einschließlich der Gebühren des Auktionshauses aufzukommen hat. Zu einem Gebot wird er nicht zugelassen, auf einen etwaigen Mehrerlös hat er keinen Anspruch. 12. Erfüllungsort und Gerichtsstand im vollkaufmännischen Verkehr ist Berlin. Es gilt ausschließlich deutsches Recht. Das UNAbkommen über Verträge des internationalen Warenkaufs (CISG) findet keine Anwendung. 13. Die im Katalog aufgeführten Preise sind Schätzpreise, keine Limite. 14. Der Nachverkauf ist Teil der Versteigerung, bei der der Interessent entweder telefonisch oder schriftlich (im Sinne der Ziffern 5 und 6) den Auftrag zur Gebotsabgabe mit einem bestimmten Betrag erteilt. 15. Die Abgabe eines Gebotes in jeglicher Form bedeutet die Anerkennung dieser Versteigerungsbedingungen. Der Versteigerer nimmt Gebote nur aufgrund der vorstehenden Versteigerungs bedingungen entgegen und erteilt dementsprechend Zuschläge. Kommissionäre haften für die Käufe ihrer Auftraggeber. 16. Sollte eine der vorstehenden Bestimmungen ganz oder teilweise unwirksam sein, so bleibt die Gültigkeit der übrigen davon unberührt. David Bassenge Geschäftsführer Stand: November 2018

Nicolaas Teeuwisse-Tilman Bassenge Foto-Auktionen GbR, subsequently called “the auctioneer” carries on business as commissionagent in its own name on behalf of its voluntary consignors. This auction sale is a public one in the sense of § 383 III BGB. 2. The auctioneer reserves the right to combine, to split, to change or to withdraw lots before the actual final sale. 3. All objects put up for auction can be viewed and examined prior to the sale at the times made known in the catalogue. The items are used and sold as is. As long as not explicitly mentioned in the catalogue description, framing is not an inherent part of the offer. As a rule, the condition of the individual work is not given in the catalogue. Catalogue descriptions are made with as much care as possible, but the descriptions do not fall under the statutory paragraph for guaranteed legal characteristics. The same applies for individually requested condition reports. These also offer no legal guarantee and only represent the subjective assessment of the auctioneer while serving as a non-binding orientation. The liability for damage to life, body or health shall remain unaffected. In case of a justified claim, however, he will accept the responsibility to make a claim for restitution on behalf of the buyer against the consignor within a period of 12 months, running from the fall of the hammer. In the event of a successful claim the auctioneer will refund the hammerprice plus premium. 4. The highest bidder acknowledged by the auctioneer shall be deemed the buyer. In case of identical bids the buyer will be deter mined by drawing lots. In the event of a dispute the auctioneer has the absolute discretion to reoffer and resell the lot in dispute. He may also knock down lots conditionally. 5. In the case of a written bid the bidder commissions the auctioneer to place bids on his behalf during the auction. In cases where there is a discrepancy between number and title in a written bid the title shall prevail. 6. Telephone and direct online bidding via the internet must be approved in advance by the auctioneer. The auctioneer cannot be held liable for faulty connections or transmission failure. In such a case the bidder agrees to bid the reserve price of the corresponding lot. For such bidding the regulations of long distance contracts do not apply (Fernabsatzverträge) [cf § 312d IV,5 BGB]. 7. On the fall of the auctioneer’s hammer title to the offered lot will pass to the acknowledged bidder. The successful buyer is obliged to accept and pay for the lot. Ownership only passes to the buyer when full payment has been received. The buyer, however, immediately assumes all risks when the goods are knocked down to him.
8. A premium of 28% of the hammer price will be levied in which the VAT is included (marginal tax scheme) or a premium of 23% of the hammer price plus the VAT of 19% of the invoice sum will be levied [books: 7%] (regular tax scheme). Buyers from countries of the European Union are subject to German VAT. Items marked with an * are subject to the regular tax scheme (premium of 23% of the hammer price plus the current VAT of 19%). Items marked with an ^ are subject to import duty. In these cases in addition to a premium of 25% (marginal tax scheme), the charged import tax of currently 7% will be added to the hammer price. Exempted from these rules are only dealers from EU-countries, who are entitled, under their notification of their VAT ID-Number, to buy on the basis of VAT-free delivery within the European Union. Notification of VAT ID-Numbers must be given to the auctioneer before the sale. For buyers from non EU-countries a premium of 23% will be levied. VAT will be exempted or refunded on production of evidence of exportation within 4 weeks of the auction, or, if appropriate, importation to another country. This is taken as given when the dispatch is effected by us. Live bidding through external online platforms entails a transaction fee stipulated by the platform and will be added to the premium. Due to the work overload of the accounting department during auctions, invoices generated during or directly after an auction require careful revision and possible correction; errors excepted. 9. Auction lots will, without exception, only be handed over after payment has been made. Credit cards (VISA, Mastercard, American Express), checks and any other form of non-cash payment are accepted only on account of performance. Exchange rate risk and bank charges may be applicable. Storage and dispatch are at the expense and risk of the buyer. If the shipping costs exceed the lump sum on the invoice the outstanding amount will be billed separately. 10. According to regulation (EC) No. 116/2009, an export license is necessary when exporting cultural goods out of European Community territory, depending on the type or value of the object in question. For the purposes of wildlife conservation, it is necessary to obtain an export license according to regulation (EC) No. 338/97 when exporting objects made from certain protected materials (incl. ivory, tortoiseshell, mother-of-pearl and certain corals) out of the territory of the European Community. Export licenses for objects made of protected materials are only granted under strict conditions or may not be granted at all. The import of such objects may be restricted or prohibited by certain countries. It is the buyer’s responsibility to inform himself, whether an object is subject to such restrictions. Export and import of such objects are at the expense and risk of the buyer.
11. The buyer is liable for acceptance of the goods and for payment. The purchase price shall be due for payment upon the lot being knocked down to the buyer. In case of a delayed payment (two weeks after the sale) the purchaser will be held responsible for all resultant damages, in particular interest and exchange losses. In case of payment default the auctioneer will charge interest on the outstanding amount at a rate of 1% to the gross price per month or part of month. In such an event the auctioneer reserves the right to annul the purchase contract without further notice, and to claim damages from the buyer for non-fulfilment, accordingly he can reauction the goods at the buyerâ€™s expense. In this case the buyer is liable for any loss incurred, the buyer shall have no claim if a higher price has been achieved. He will not be permitted to bid. 12. The place of fulfillment and jurisdiction is Berlin. German law applies exclusively; the UN-Treaty (CISG) is explicitly excluded. 13. The prices quoted after each lot are estimates, not reserves.
14. The after-sales is part of the auction in which the bidder places either by teleÂphone or in written form (as stated in number 5 and 6) the order to bid a set amount. 15. By making a bid, either verbally in the auction, by telephone, written by letter, by fax, or through the internet the bidder confirms that he has taken notice of these terms of sale by auction and accepts them. Agents who act on behalf of a third party are jointly and separately liable for the fulfillment of contract on behalf of their principals. 16. Should one or the other of the above terms of sale become wholly or partly ineffective, the validity of the remainder is not affected. In the event of a dispute the German version of the above conditions of sale is valid. David Bassenge As of November 2018
