A fascinating collection of maps and drawings by Rev. James Mickleburgh. Mickleburgh was a rural pastor who was also an editor of the Society for the Diffusion of Usful Knowledge (S.D.U.K.). His druaghtmanship is not in question, and it is presumed that with his connection to the S.D.U.K. he was also the cartographer of the map, as Speake was one of his parishioners. There are examples of Speake’s maps in the Royal Geographical Society and they lack the obvious professional style and appearance of this example. In fact they are somewhat amateurish. We pressume that Mickleburgh drew this map for Speake. The album contains several drawings of Dartmouth and the surrounding towns and villages of Devon. James Mickleburgh was a contributor to the drawings in the two volumes of Anastatic drawings. The provenence of this collection is by descent to the present owner from James Mickleburgh’s housekeeper, Phoebe Newbery. A family tree and census entries are included in the lot. (4) £300-500

John Cairncross was said to have been the 'Fifth Man' in the Cambridge spy ring that included Philby, Burgess and Maclean. He worked for the Special Intelligence Service and GCHQ during World War Two, having been recruited by Soviet intelligence after he left Trinity College, Cambridge. He rose to be a treasury mandarin before resigning in 1957 when he came under suspicion but he always denied acting against Britain's national interest. His autobiography was published in 1997, two years after his death and a huge legal battle ensued when former Tory MP and spy writer Rupert Allason (who writes under the nom-de-plume Nigel West) claimed that he had ghost-written the book in a deal struck with Cairncross before his death. Allason maintained that John Cairncross had assigned copyright to him during a meeting in a French restaurant in 1994 but Gayle Cairncross, the author's widow, said the only deal was that Mr. Allason should find a publisher. Mr Justice Laddie described Allason as 'a profoundly dishonest man' after he threw the case out of court. The judge said 'I have come to the clearest possible conclusion that Mr. Allason has told me untruth after untruth in pursuit of this claim'. The judge then took the unusual step of ordering Allason to pay the publishers, Random House, approximately £200,000 indemnity costs. (3 cartons) £200-300

Wing C7597. A rare pamphlet, printed by the prolific, but somewhat illusive, Jane Coe. Jane Coe, sometimes known as Widow Coe, published a large number of pamphlets between 1643 and 1649, and was also co-publishing with Andrew Coe during this period. Jane and Andrew Coes’ press was evidently a very busy press indeed, issuing a large number of cheaply produced pamphlets, which, due to their ephemeral nature, rarely survive. It specialised in news articles, usually following a moderate parliamentarian line which was generally anti-Catholic in tone and content. A Cup of Sack, however, is rather more vehement in its exhortations at the end: ‘For the mercies of that God, which hath been merciful to you, let not m[i]llions of Protestants be murdered, and massacred by them, with millions of poor children that know not their right hand, from their left, suffer not your wives, and daughters to be ravished and deflowred, but joyne as one man, against the Common Enemy’.

She was an early supporter of the Revolution, but her initial admiration for Napoleon quickly gave way to disillusionment, and she eventually favoured the restoration of the monarchy. Williams held a salon in Paris, hosting a wide variety of international liberals and radicals, among them Thomas Paine and Mary Wollstonecraft. Many of her friends were arrested and eventually executed, and in 1793, Williams, her mother, and her sister, were themselves imprisoned for a brief period. Williams received mixed reviews during her lifetime. In the 1780s Williams’ poetry appealed to the liberal sentiments of her countrymen; her list of admirers included the young William Wordsworth, who composed a sonnet about her in 1787, and Robert Burns, who praised her anti-slavery poem, whilst Williams’ only novel, ‘Julia’, was generously praised by Mary Wollstonecraft. Horace Walpole, however, called her a ‘scribbling trollop’, and she was featured in ‘The Unsexed Females’, the Reverend Richard Polwhele’s 1798 diatribe against radical women. (1) £100-150

767 Booth (Charles). Descriptive Map of London Poverty 1889, pub. Stanfords, [1891], general key map titled ‘Map Shewing degrees of Poverty in London in Areas with about 30, 000 Inhabitants in each Compiled from Information Collection in 18891890’, lithograph printed in monotone, approx. 640 x 880mm, and four folding regional colour lithographic maps with colour key below each map, each approx. 570 x 615mm, very occ. short closed tears, contained in contemp. blue cloth gilt solander box The map is based on Stanford’s ‘Library Map of London’, but its importance lies in the depiction and extent of poverty in London at the end of the 19th century. Booth’s survey was highly detailed almost to the point of pedantry. Every street is shown and classified by a colour code into ‘The Lowest Class. Viscious, semi-crimminal’, ‘Very Poor casual, Chronic want’, through severn different orders ending with ‘Upper-middle and Upper classes, Wealthy’. This map was published as part of ‘Labour and Life of the People’, which was Booth’s monumental polemic on poverty. In this work Booth argued that chronic pauperism inevitably led to depravity and that recognition of endemic poverty and the problems it caused must be given greater weight in both in political and social circles. Booth’s highly academic and unemotional approach provided the statistical ammunition needed by those pressing for social change.

A ‘supressed’ print which was aimed at the sycophancy of the press who had waxed lyrical about the daintiness of the feet of Charlotte Duchess of York. The more unkind might well have retorted that there was little else to commend the Duchess other than her feet. The print simply shows two pairs of feet and ankles quite clearly in the ‘missionary’ position, with the Duke’s feet enlarged and the Duchess’s feet drawn very small. Simple yet devastating in puncturing the pomposity which surrounded the engagement of the Prince of Wales. (1) £150-200

The ‘French Invasion’ caricature was one of Gillray’s most famous ‘supressed’ plates. Its scurrilous, vulgar and offensive portrayal of George III defecating on France was deemed too crude even for the bawdy tastes of Regency England.

Additionally, they created countless images of everyday life in Berlin and in total produced approximately 200,000 photographs. Many of their photos were destroyed in the Second World War. The estate of Otto and Georg Haeckel lies with the Ullstine Bild which has 16,000 glass plates and 11,000 photographs. The photographs offered here which are largely silver prints include some contact prints and a very small number of collotypes. A number of images show the name of other photographers in the negative, but the vast majority have one of several variations of Georg, Otto or Haeckel Brothers printed paper labels or wetstamps to versos. The majority of images here would appear to have been photographed in the period 1900-1920 but the printing of some or many may have been slightly later.

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.
