An account of travels to Ethiopia, supposedly written by an Italian. However Juel Jensen, in a 1981 article in the Book Collector, described this work as a “literary forgery”. He suggests that there never was an Italian edition or such a person as Giacomo Barrati and that the core of the book was taken from Samuel Purchas. (1) £400-600

Provenance: Lieut. J. Buckley V.C. (signature to title). Lieutenant John Buckley (1813-1876) was awarded the Victoria Cross ‘For Gallant defence of the magazine at Delhi’. During the 1857 Indian Mutiny, Buckley and eight other soldiers defended the Delhi magazine (munitions store). Vastly outnumbered, he decided to blow up the building (and themselves) rather than let the ammunition fall into the mutineers hands, miraculously surviving along with three others. Upon capture, he learnt his entire family had been killed by the rebels, and no longer caring for his own life, later escaped and volunteered for all manner of dangerous missions. He returned to England in 1858, and was awarded the VC from the Queen. A blue commemorative plaque is sited at the Travellers Call, Stalybridge and his Victoria Cross is at the Royal Army Ordnance Corps Museum, Camberley. (1) £200-300

Signed by the author on the front free endpaper, and additionally inscribed, apparently in the same hand: ‘Dear Jack with Mother’s love Nov: 1st. 1921’, Brigadier-General Reginald Edward Harry Dyer CB (1864-1927) was a British Indian Army officer responsible for the Jallianwala Bagh massacre in Amritsar (in the British India province of Punjab) in 1919. It was under his command that 90 troops opened fire on a gathering of unarmed civilians, including women and children, gathered at the Jallianwalla Bagh to participate in the annual Baisakhi celebrations of religion and culture. The people were unaware of the martial law that had been imposed because they were from outside the city. It is thought that over 1, 000 were killed and more than 1, 200 wounded. The deliberate infliction of these massive casualties earned General Dyer the infamous epitaph of the ‘Butcher of Amritsar’ in India. (1) £100-150

Smart, with ornate central lozenge and butterfly corner-pieces to each board, heavily rubbed to spine and extrems., 8vo Originally privately printed by the author in Gloucester in 1863, it is believed that perhaps no more than five copies of that edition were printed. Henry Bradbury was the leading proponent of nature printing, printing two books on seaweeds and ferns in the 1850s using the process. This form of nature printing involved passing the plant between a steel plate and a lead plate, through two rollers closely screwed together. The plant embeds into the lead plate upon which coloured ink or inks are applied and from this copies can be produced. The term nature printing as used for this book refers to a different process used specifically for making impressions of butterfly wings involving sandwiching butterfly wings between two pieces of paper, and, by exterting pressure through a press, producing the coloured image of the wings. The difficulties in terms of specimens available, time, and expense means that editions are very small. Copac lists only two copies of this edition held at National Library of Scotland and Cambridge University. (1) £500-800

John and Henry Overton (father & son) purchased copper plates from a variety of cartographers including Jan Jansson, John Speed and William Smith.

It has been arranged by him, therefore, purely and solely, - for HER benefit.” Some way through the volume the text peters out, and the remaining photographs are mounted without captions.

The futuristic tale of a thousand years hence paints a depressing view of the fate of humankind consumed by the forces of Nature. It describes a world inhabited only by a dwindling population of grotesque dwarfs devoid of all humanity, who are able to venture out only at night, for fear of being picked off the earth by some unknown and unseen force. The time-traveller describes his first meeting with one such specimen: ‘He was a poor miserable wretched figure, about three and a half or four feet high, with an overgrown head and a deformed body supported on weak crooked tottering legs’. The houses inhabited by these unfortunate creatures are fitted with curious shutters ‘so arranged that they sloped gradually in a converging manner after starting from the window, being fixed immovably to the wall of the house around the window frame, so that all the windows looked as if they had huge telescopes fixed to them, the apparent object of this arrangement being that those inside might observe what was going on outside without being seen themselves’. Fortunately for the hero of the tale he is transported back to 1891 and an ‘age in which the forces of Nature have not as yet received the power to compel the inhabitants of Earth to live wrapped in dismal nights and never to behold the glorious light of day’.

Hon. Welbore Ellis, at Twickenham in Middlesex; Seat of Sir John Elvill Bart. at Englefield Green in Surrey; Bally-finn; Tulleymore Park. The Royal Mathematical School (or RMS) was established as a integral part of Christ’s Hospital by Charles II in 1673, with the purpose of training mathematicians and navigators who would progress into careers as naval officers or merchant seafarers. One of the reasons for its founding was that the Dutch Wars in the 1660s had brought about many losses among naval officers and the shortage needed to be addressed. A number of powerful men pressed for its foundation, most notably Samuel Pepys, who was Secretary of the Admiralty, and later Vice-President of Christ’s Hospital. The King decreed that from among the pupils at Christ’s Hospital, forty poor boys a year should be chosen to study for seven years at the RMS, after which time they would be apprenticed for another seven years to the captain of a ship. This unique and exquisitely-produced manuscript book was the result of scholar George Charles Searle’s studies at the RMS and probably took the full term of his studies to complete. Searle was born on 19th November 1791 in Walthamstow, Essex, and was admitted to Christ’s Hospital on 26th April 1800. He was discharged on 22nd December 1808, at the age of seventeen, to Edward Chapman Bradford, Commander of the East India Company Ship, Lord Duncan. (1) £3000-4000

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.
