377 WWII - Belsen. A contemporary account by a ‘British padre’ and his experiences of encountering Belsen concentration camp in April 1945, two and a half leaves of cyclostyled sheets from a typewritten original, ‘I don’t know whether I ought to write this. Something seems to tell me that many may say it is a flight of my imagination; others may say that at least there is a semblance of truth in what I write, but that I have laid on the colours much too thickly. But for all that, I feel it ought to be done. Numbers of other people have done it. But it will do no harm for hundreds more to do the same. This is so ghastly a story that the whole world should know about it’, describing the beautiful scenery around the camp which served to hide the hideous doings which occurred in the camps hidden behind the undulating hills and vast pine forest. The unidentified author gives statistical and first-hand details of what he saw and knows of the life in the camps, the starvation, the appalling sanitary conditions, plus the improvements, the SS men and women and their Commandant Josef Kramer, printed to rectos and stapled at upper corner, together with thirteen leaves from an official printed report on Belsen concentration camp, pp. 399-411, marked ‘Appendix “O” to Chapter 7’, printed to rectos only with b & w illusts. from photos on five leaves plus one diagrammatic map of the camp, a little browned and brittled at margins, all foolscap folio

The letter from Montgomery is marked private and reads in full: ‘Dear Cooper, thank you so very much for lending me this book. I have been laid up with influenza and have read it in bed with great interest. It is a great pity that the author in his endeavours to “write up” Ike has found in necessary to decry everything British. A British author might well reply that all Eisenhower’s fighting was handled for him by British Commanders: which is literally true. It was only when Ike, flushed by victory, descended from the lofty perch of a Supreme Commander and took tactical command himself of the armies, that our troubles began. The author is indeed ungenerous to British soldiers throughout his book; he even blames them for the fact that some Germans escaped from the Falaise pocket! For his remarks about myself, I care nothing; I could refute everything he says by written evidence; but his ungenerous attitude to British arms is a pity as some British author is bound to write a counter-blast: which would be a worse pity! Ike was a great Supreme Commander, and should be recognised as such. But in order to assign to him qualities that he does not possess, the author has had to put an entirely false complexion on many things. It would be perfectly simple to prove this “false complexion” but this must never be done. Of one thing I am convinced: we and America have got to come together, definitely, conclusively, and perpetually. Once we can achieve this, all will be well in the world. I think it can be achieved if we set about it in the right way. But we shall achieve nothing if we start emitting boohs about each other. All this is of course private. Thank you again for letting me read the book. Yours sincerely, B.L. Montgomery, Field-Marshall’. (4) £300-400

469 [Taylor, Jane & Ann]. Signor Topsy-Turvey’s Wonderful Magic Lantern; or, The World turned upside down... Illustrated with TwentyFour Engravings, 1st ed., printed for Tabart & Co. at the Juvenile and School Library, 1810, pp.71+[1](ads.), eng. frontis. (close-trimmed at top edge clipping image), and twenty-three eng. plts., contents generally browned, and small stain to fore-margin throughout (just clipping edge of images/text in places), a few short edge tears/nicks, mid. 19th c. half calf gilt, lightly rubbed and spine faded, 16mo Gumuchian 5517; Moon, Benjamin Tabart’s Juvenile Library, 171(1). Extremely rare. Not in Osborne. A curious and amusing little book, which Marjorie Moon calls “an excellent production”. She adds “the verses are neat, pointed and (as may be expected, considering the authors) easily to be understood by children” and she describes the plates (possibly by Isaac Taylor, junior) as “among the more proficient illustrations in children’s books of the period”. The imaginative engravings and accompanying verse are apparently the result of the Magic Lantern operator’s ineptitude as he shows slides upside down, causing humorous reversals of standard roles, such as: ‘Monkey turned Beau’; ‘The Dunce turned Scholar’; ‘The Boy turned Giant’; ‘The Ass turned Miller’; ‘Game turned Sportsman’; ‘Fish out of Water’; ‘The Moon in the Dumps’; and ‘The Horse turned Driver’. In some cases the ludicrous takes on a rather alarming tone, for example, ‘The Cook Cooked’ shows the cook being roasted on a spit by a hare, ‘The Mare turned Farrier’ shows a horse hammering a nail into the farrier’s foot, and ‘The Hogs Court of Inquiry’ shows a number of bewigged hogs presiding over a butcher with bound limbs. Apart from a partial American reprinting in 1811, the book was never published again, in stark contrast to the rest of the Taylor sister’s oeuvre. This may have been in part because Benjamin Tabart was declared bankrupt in 1810, though it still seems surpring that the work was not taken up by another publisher. It seems probable that, despite the moralistic tone of some of the tales, the over-riding theme of anarchy - more subversive than the standard content of early nineteenth century children’s literature - was just too much for contemporary audiences.

Garrison Morton 418. The rare first edition of this classic medical text, which has been more widely used by successive generations of medical students and doctors than any other. Celebrated physician Henry Gray (1827-1861) was chiefly engaged in anatomical research and teaching at St. George’s Hospital in London. The ambitious and ebullient surgeon performed the dissections required for the book with his shy and retiring colleague, Henry Vandyke Carter, who provided the exquisitely detailed drawings. On publication the book was immediately acclaimed for its simple layout and clarity. Carter’s hand in its success has always been somewhat overlooked, and indeed, Gray himself requested that Carter’s name appear in smaller print than his own on the title-page. However, Gray died suddenly of smallpox at the age of 34, whereas Carter went on to achieve some modest acclaim for his medical research amongst the poorest people in India. (1) £700-1000

An outstanding and previously unknown association copy, gifted to the current owner by his mother's landlady in Paris some forty years ago. Mason 348: 'Salome was being rehearsed in June 1892 for production at the Palace Theatre, London, by Madame Sarah Bernhardt (with M. Albert Darmont as Herod) when the Lord Chamberlain withheld his licence on the ground that the play introduced biblical characters.' The play which Wilde began writing in 1891 eventually found its first performance at the Theatre de l'Oeuvre in Paris on 11 February 1896. The English translation of the text first appeared in 1894. The influence of the celebrated French Symbolist painter Gustave Moreau (1826-1898) on Oscar Wilde's vision for his play Salome is often cited as selfevident yet there is scant documentary evidence. It is not known that they ever met, and indeed Moreau is not mentioned once in the Complete Letters of Oscar Wilde (2000). Oscar Wilde complained to Charles Ricketts after seeing Aubrey Beardsley's drawings for the English edition: 'My Herod is like the Herod of Gustave Moreau, wrapped in his jewels and his sorrows. My Salome is a mystic, the sister of Salammbo, a Saint Therese who worships the moon.' This inscribed copy puts beyond doubt Wilde's admiration for and his debt to the great French painter. In May 1884 Wilde visited Paris as a newly wed with his wife Constance just weeks after the publication of Joris-Karl Huysman's influential decadent novel A Rebours. While there Wilde visited the Louvre to see Moreau's celebrated The Apparition. This watercolour of Salome dancing before Herod had been exhibited alongside another oil painting of the same subject at the Paris Salon of 1876. The exhibition drew newspaper reports and the crowds with over 500,000 people flocking to see the two pictures. Moreau set in train Symbolist ideas and the artistic craze for the femme fatale Salome which Wilde was so keen to turn into French words and stage design. Moreau himself returned to the theme often, producing some nineteen paintings, six watercolours and more than 150 drawings of the same subject. Interestingly, the frontispiece to this lot (inserted by Wilde?) is a photograph from a watercolour of Salome Dancing from c. 1886 now hanging in the Musee d'Orsay. It shows Salome more richly robed and with a more PreRaphaelite look than the two famous pictures of 1876. After 1880 Moreau never exhibited at the Salons (or anywhere) again and refused to allow his pictures to be reproduced. Where this photographic frontispiece then came from is not the only question left begging. Are the endpapers and binding decoration from Moreau's designs and did Wilde or Moreau or another insert the photograph?

595 Wain (Louis, illust.). The Marvellous Story of Puss in Boots, Chicago, M.A. Donohue & Co., c.1920, 12pp. glazed linen, incl. covers, one or two minor marks to latter, col. illusts. throughout, slim 4to, together with Vote for Women, and Be Sure of a Merry Christmas, c.1910, folding embossed col. printed Christmas card, depicting a cat waving a flag, inscribed inside from ‘Neil’, 115 x 95mm (4.5 x 3.75 ins)

Moreau was himself influenced by Gustave Flaubert's novel Salammbo (1862) but Moreau's influence on the arts was to be more profound, most notably through Huysman's novel A Rebours where the aesthete Des Esseintes sees Salome not as the dancing girl of the New Testament, but 'she had become in some way, the symbolic deity of indestructible lust, the Goddess of immortal Hysteria, the accursed Beauty exalted above all other beauties … the monstrous Beast...' Des Esseintes hangs Moreau's two famous Salome paintings side by side at his home so that he could: 'consider the beginnings of this great artist, this mythical pagan, this seer who could conjure up in the everyday world of Paris such visions and magical apotheoses of other ages.'

The Young King and Other Tales, Ashendene Press, 1924, dedication printed in red and blue, colophon with red device, pencil signature and note of Diana Orpen (nee Olivier, daughter in law of the painter of Sir William Orpen), contemp. ink inscription at rear, orig. dec. boards, a little toned and soiled, wear to spine and extrems., 8vo. One of 65 copies on paper. (1)

Richard Ellmann in his noted biography of Oscar Wilde (1988) wrote: 'The principal engenderer of the story was an account in the fifth chapter of Huysmans's A Rebours of two paintings by Gustave Moreau, and in the fourteenth chapter of the same book a quotation from Mallarme's 'Herodiade'. In one painting the aged Herod is being stirred by Salome's lascivious but indifferent dance; in the other Salome is being presented with the Baptist's head giving forth rays on a charger. Huysmans attributes to Salome the mythopoeic force that Pater attributes to the Mona Lisa, and mentions that writers have never succeeded in rendering her adequately' (p. 321).

£200-300

597 Wilde (Oscar). Salomé, Drame en un Acte, 1st ed., Paris & London, 1893, title with device by Félicien Rops, contemp. silver print photograph of Moreau’s watercolour of Salomé dancing, tipped in as frontis., author’s signed presentation inscription to second blank verso and sl. offset to half title, ‘à Gustave Moreau, Hommage respectueux, Oscar Wilde’, with Wilde’s trademark paraph to the last letter of his name, some light browning to first two blanks and half title, orig. purple wrappers printed in silver, somewhat faded and with marginal browning, the whole (including spine) bound by Pagnant in contemp. boards with a stencilled floral decoration design in red, green, blue and yellow, embossed ex libris stamp of Oscar Molinari to additional blank front free endpaper, the endpapers being two identical gilt pictorial designs of Saints, leather title label to spine and gilt dated imprint at foot, worn along joints, 8vo

'Wilde's knowledge of the iconography of Salome was immense. He complained that Rubens's Salome appeared to him to be 'an apoplectic Maritornes'. On the other hand, Leonardo's Salome was excessively incorporeal. Others, by Durer, Ghirlandaio, van Thulden, were unsatisfactory because incomplete. The celebrated Salome of Regnault he considered to be a mere 'gypsy'. Only Moreau satisfied him, and he liked to quote Huysmans's description of the Moreau paintings' (p. 323). (1) £20000-30000

Conditions of Sale and Business 1. The Seller warrants to the Auctioneer and the buyer that he is the true owner or is properly authorised to sell the property by the true owner and is able to transfer good and marketable title to the property free from any third party claims.

7. Any representation or statement by the Auctioneer in any catalogue, brochure or advertisement of forthcoming sales as to authorship, attribution, genuineness, origin, date, age, provenance, condition or estimated selling price is a statement of opinion only. Every person interested should exercise and rely on his own judgement as to such matters and neither the Auctioneer nor his servants or agents are responsible for the correctness of such opinions. No warranty whatsoever is given by the Auctioneer or the seller in respect of any lot and any express or implied warranties are hereby excluded.

2. (a) The highest bidder to be the buyer. If during the auction the Auctioneer considers that a dispute has arisen he has absolute authority to settle it or re-offer the lot. The Auctioneer may at his sole discretion determine the advance of bidding or refuse a bid, divide any lot, combine any two or more lots or withdraw any lot without prior notice. (b) Where goods are bought at auction by a buyer who has entered into an agreement with another or others that the other or others (or some of them) shall abstain from bidding for the goods and the buyer or other party or one of the other parties is a dealer (as defined in the Auction Biddings Agreement Act 1927) the buyer warrants that the goods are bought bona fide on joint account.

8. (a) Notwithstanding any other terms of these conditions, if within fourteen days of the sale the Auctioneer has received from the buyer of any lot notice in writing that in his view the lot is a deliberate forgery and within fourteen days after such notification the buyer returns the same to the Auctioneer in the same condition as at the time of the sale and satisfies the Auctioneer that considered in the light of the entry in the catalogue the lot is a deliberate forgery then the sale of the lot will be rescinded and the purchase price of the same refunded. "A deliberate forgery" means a lot made with intention to deceive. (b) A buyer's claim under this condition shall be limited to any amount paid to the Auctioneer for the lot and for the purpose of this condition the buyer shall be the person to whom the original invoice was made out by the Auctioneer.

3. The buyer shall pay the price at which a lot is knocked down by the Auctioneer to the buyer (“the hammer price”) together with a premium of 17.5% of the hammer price. Where the lot is marked by an asterisk the premium will be subject to VAT at 17.5% which under the Auctioneer’s Margin Scheme will form part of the buyer’s premium on our invoice and will not be separately identified (the premium added to the hammer price will hereafter collectively be referred to as “the total sum due”). By making any bid the buyer acknowledges that his attention has been drawn to the fact that on the sale of any lot the Auctioneer will receive from the seller commission at its usual rates in addition to the said premium of 17.5% and assents to the Auctioneer receiving the said commission.

9. Lots may be removed during the sale after full settlement in accordance with 4(d) hereof. 10. All goods delivered to the Auctioneer's premises will be deemed to be delivered for sale by auction unless otherwise stated in writing and will be catalogued and sold at the Auctioneer's discretion and accepted by the Auctioneer subject to all these conditions. In the case of miscellaneous books, the Auctioneer reserves the right to extract and dispose of books that, in the opinion of the Auctioneer at his absolute discretion, have no saleable value and, therefore, might detract from the saleability of the rest of the lot and the Auctioneer shall incur no liability to the seller, in respect of the books disposed of. By delivering the goods to the Auctioneer for inclusion in his auction sales each seller acknowledges that he/she accepts and agrees to all the conditions.

4. (a) The buyer shall forthwith upon the purchase give in his name and permanent address and pay to the Auctioneer immediately after the conclusion of the auction the total sum due. (b) The buyer may be required to pay down during the course of the sale the whole or any part of the total sum due, and if he fails to do so after such request the lot or lots may at the Auctioneer's absolute discretion be put up again and resold immediately. (c) The buyer shall at his own expense take away any lot or lots purchased no later than five working days after the auction day. (d) The Auctioneer may at his own discretion agree credit terms with a buyer and extend the time limits for collection in special cases but otherwise payment shall be deemed to have been made only after the Auctioneer has received cash or a sterling banker’s draft or the buyer's cheque has been cleared.

11. (a) Unless otherwise instructed in writing all goods on the Auctioneer's premises and in their custody will be held insured against the risks of fire, burglary, water damage and accidental breakage or damage for which insurance the Auctioneer will charge a premium of £1.50 per £100. The value of the goods so covered will be the hammer price, or in the case of unsold lots the best bid, or in the case of loss or damage prior to the sale that which the specialised staff of the Auctioneer shall in their absolute discretion estimate to be the auction value of such goods. (b) The Auctioneer shall not be responsible for damage to or the loss, theft, or destruction of any goods not so insured because of the owner’s written instructions.

5. (a) If the buyer fails to pay for or take away any lot or lots pursuant to clause 4 or breaches any other condition of that clause the Auctioneer as agent for the seller shall be entitled after consultation with the seller to exercise one or other of the following rights: (i) Rescind the sale of that or any other lots sold to the buyer who defaults and re-sell the lot or lots whereupon the defaulting buyer shall pay to the Auctioneer any shortfall between the proceeds of that sale after deduction of costs of re-sale and the total sum due. Any surplus shall belong to the seller. (ii) Proceed for damages for breach of contract. (b) Without prejudice to the Auctioneer's rights hereunder if any lots or lots are not collected within five days or such longer period as the Auctioneer may have agreed otherwise, the Auctioneer may charge the buyer a storage charge of £1.00 + VAT at the current rate per lot per day. (c) Ownership of the lot purchased shall not pass to the buyer until he has paid to the Auctioneer the total sum due.

12. The Auctioneer shall remit the proceeds of the sale to the seller thirty days after the day of the auction provided that the Auctioneer has received the total sum due from the buyer. In all other cases the Auctioneer will remit the proceeds of the sale to the seller within seven days of the receipt by the Auctioneer of the total sum due. The Auctioneer will not be deemed to have received the total sum due until after any cheque delivered by the buyer has been cleared. In the event of the Auctioneer exercising his right to rescind the sale his obligation to the seller hereunder lapses.

6. (a) The seller shall be entitled to place a reserve on any lot and the Auctioneer shall have the right to bid on behalf of the seller for any lot on which a reserve has been placed. A seller may not bid on any lot on which a reserve has been placed. (b) Where any lot fails to sell, the Auctioneer shall notify the seller accordingly. The seller shall make arrangements either to re-offer the lot for sale or to collect the lot and may be asked to pay a commission not exceeding 50% of the selling commission and any special expenses incurred in cataloguing the lot. (c) If such arrangements are not made within seven days of the notification the Auctioneer is empowered to sell the lot by auction or by private treaty at not less than the reserve price and to receive from the seller the normal selling commission and special expenses.

13. In the case of the seller withdrawing instructions to the Auctioneer to sell any lot or lots, the Auctioneer may charge a fee of 12.5% of the Auctioneer's middle estimate of the auction price of the lot withdrawn together with Value Added Tax thereon and any expenses incurred in respect of the lot or lots. 14. The Auctioneer’s current standard notices and information (i.e. Collation and Amendments) will apply to any contract with the Auctioneer as if incorporated herein. 15. These conditions shall be governed by and construed in accordance with English Law.
