Booth’s survey was highly detailed with every street classified by a colour code into:- ‘The Lowest Class. Viscious, semi-crimminal’, ‘Very Poor, casual, chronic want’, through seven different orders ending with ‘Upper-middle and upper classes, Wealthy’. Booth’s ‘Labour and Life of the People’ is a monumental polemic on poverty in which Booth argues that chronic pauperism inevitably leads to depravity and that the recognition of endemic poverty and the problems it causes should be given far greater weight in both political and social circles. Booth is probably best remembered for the founding of The Salvation Army, but his highly academic and un-emotional approach to the poor of London provided much needed statistical ammunition for those pressing for social change. The map has been described as ‘Quite the most Important thematic map of metropolis in the 19th century’. Hyde p.28. Shapero Gallery Catalogue, ‘The World Refolded’, Item 16. (3) £1500-2000

Eileen Savery worked as secretay to Barbara Cartland for many years, and this collection of letters is being sold by her nephew. The two women appear to have had an extremely close, and at times, somewhat tempestuous relationship. A number of the letters mention salary, which seems to have been a recurring bone of contention, with the novelist always offering increased renumeration when faced with the prospect of losing Eileen. That she valued and loved her secretary enormously is very apparent from the many letters in similar vein to this: ‘Thank you for being wonderful this past year. I can’t think what I would do without you. You know how DEVOTED we all are to you and how much you mean to me. Bless you darling and thank you with all my heart’. Several of the letters make reference to Barbara’s capricious and demanding nature: ‘To thank you darling for everything you do and for being SO marvellous. I AM grateful even when I’m disagreeable’; ‘I do appreciate you and all you do for me though I’m tired and cross at times (like the Old People!)’; and ‘I will try to be half nice and good tempered now my back is better and you know HOW much I love you, how much I rely on you and how VERY VERY much I appreciate you. You are a very wonderful person and you mean more in my life than I can ever say’. In one of her letters to Eileen she apologises for losing her temper and acknowledges that Eileen has sometimes resented her employee for overworking her. This is borne out in Barbara’s get well messages when Eileen became ill with pneumonia: ‘I’m so worried about you.. The filing will soon reach the ceiling!’; and ‘I’m so sorry you’re ill. It would be this week when I had 4 chapters to dictate!!!’. In one or two other letters the romantic novelist gives advice on affairs of the heart: ‘You are SO pretty that you will find someone else at once and the best antidote to any love affair is another... I wasted 5 years of my life being in love with someone who really wasn’t good enough and who I didn’t in my heart of hearts want to marry. I saw him the other day and he was fat and bald and a crashing bore!!’, going on to say ‘There is ALWAYS an adventure round every corner I promise you that. Just go looking for it and remember that like a taxi you must have your flap up READY for adventure’. (approx. 50) £700-1000

Almost childishly so, I cannot endure any belittlement of him. And yet even Wordsworth was guilty of it. When Miss Edgworth - I think it was Miss Edgworth - remarked What a pity it was that William had seen so little of J.K. he replied, “Yes, I think intercourse with me would have done him good”. Something to that effect. Done him good! There is lovely work of W.W.’s earlier years, but think of the difference and time spent on this earth regarding the two complete achievements. J.K. was only 24 or so when he had to stop writing’, and later referring to the timing of the sea, ‘I am most grateful for the oceanic pulsation statistics. You will both be amused to hear that I wanted to know this in relation to the reading of a sonnet. This takes approximately a minute: i.e. seventy heart-beats for fourteen lines of ten syllables each, five “long”, five “short”. And you’ll see beats exactly half the fourteen. There are two lines that is, in the sonnets to every watery crash; and this has no perceptible relation, so far as I can see, to clock-time; though I am no mathematician’, several manuscript corrections to the typed letters, a total of 24 pp. on blue paper, oblong 8vo, plus three of the original franked envelopes, plus a final letter sent by Walter de la Mare’s secretary M.

Gibbon, John (1629-1718) was the son of Robert Gibbon (1594-1643), citizen and draper of Watling Street, London. His first employment was as domestic tutor to Thomas, Lord Coventry, at Allesborough, Worcestershire. In the 1650s he travelled widely, probably owing to his royalist sympathies. He saw military service in Europe. In 1657 Gibbon sailed to Virginia where he lived for three years, working as estate manager for Colonel Richard Lee, the secretary of state, with whom he returned to London shortly after the Restoration. His long-standing interest in heraldry and the influence of William Dugdale led to Gibbon’s appointment as Bluemantle pursuivant-at-arms in 1671. His most significant publication was the Introductio ad Latinam blasoniam (1682).Gibbon was a supporter of James, duke of York and published several tracts. The advent of William and Mary reduced his opportunities as a writer and herald, but he eventually took the oath of allegiance. The historian Edward Gibbon was his brother’s great-grandson.

He was appointed Physician to London Hospital in 1784 when he initiated lectures on clinical medicine. There seems to be no record of these unpublished lectures on chemistry, which he prefaces with ‘chymistry stands in the same relation of physick as anatomy to surgery’. He is best remembered for his ‘Treatise on nervous disease’, 1820-23 (Garrison & Morton 4519.2). The ownership name is that of J. Hanby who is listed as an apprentice drugist in 1787 (Wallis 1988) and later as a chemist in Piccadilly, London. (2) £800-1200

446 Gloucester Dispensary and Vaccine Institution. A record of General Meetings 1831-1872, 210 pp. manuscript written in several clear hands, printed subscriber’s reports pasted in, contemp. reversed calf, with paper label to upper cover, a little wear to head and foot of spine, 4to A rare continuous record of a dispensary. The Dispensary opened in 1831, being founded by the Bishop and local clergy together with local doctors, including John Baron, physician at the Infirmary, friend and biographer of Edward Jenner. The medical staff offered free care to the poor of the city including visits to their homes as no beds were provided. The dispensary was based in a rented house and an apothecary was employed. Only acute and chronic medical conditions were treated as surgical cases were referred to in the Infirmary. All costs were met by subscriptions (which gave the right to refer a patient) and by donations. It continued to perform its functions for over 40 years. In 1872 it changed its nature to become a Provident Society supported by the patients themselves. The reports of the meeting initially listed the regulation and later noted any proposed changes in the administration. The financial position was discussed each year and all costs were considered. The annual number of patients treated and their fates were listed. The medical staff gave an annual report which often included comments on prevailing epidemics, e.g. scarlatina, influenza and cholera (1840). The dispensary movement starting in the middle of the 18th century was usually in response to changes in local conditions. In Gloucester the opening of the Sharpness canal in 1829 with the development of the docks and the arrival of the railway would have had profound effects on the population of a market town. (1) £400-600

447 Heberden (William, 1710-1801). An Introduction to the Study of Physick by the Celebrated Dr Heberden [so titled], undated student’s manuscript, c. 1780, 142 leaves written in a clear hand without corrections to rectos only, red ink ruled borders, including three blanks (but no omissions), consisting of a preface and twelve chapters which correspond closely but not exactly to the printed work (based on a holograph ms.) by Crummer 1929 (a copy included with the lot), early ownership inscription of W. Blair, 1802 [?17661822, MRCS of Bloomsbury, London], with a note that ‘The present Dr Hebberden has acknowledged this work to be the genuine production of his Father, London, 1802’, New Church College Library printed labels to front pastedown with presentation inscription from Dr Becker to D. G. Goyder (Librarian at New Church College Library) above labels, contemp. marbled boards, some corner wear, modern calf reback with old red leather label to spine, 8vo This work was written between 1745 and 1755 and later formed the basis for lectures at the Royal College of Physicians. It was never published and remained unknown until 1929. This copy is a transcription made c. 1780 (as indicated by watermarks of the paper) and is very similar to the Wellcome MS. 2821. A very rare item associated with a great figure of British Medicine and the first systematic analysis of the needs of medical education. (2) £2000-3000

Hanby to title (who probably acquired this from an earlier owner), contemp. tree calf gilt, rubbed with sl. wear to extrems., antiquestyle calf gilt reback, 8vo

These lectures given at Great Windmill Street are not published in book form. They seem similar to the Wellcome MSS. 2965 and 5595. (1) £1000-1500

The lectures are written in an easy and frank style, with comments on particular patients. Although William Hunter is chiefly remembered as an obstetrical celebrity (Spencer), his conservative methods were never published and the only records that remain are in the rare manuscript copies of his lectures. Wellcome Library (MS. 2966) is the most similar found, being lectures anatamocial and chirugical, dated 1783. The Royal College of Surgeons of England owns 20 volumes of papers comprising notes taken by unidentified authors, of lectures by William Hunter and William Hewson, c. 1772 (GB 0114 MS02O4).

GORDON ROBINSON (1916-2006) “…a born again falconer”

Gordon was born in London on a cold and snowy day in 1916. When he was at Radleigh School he was unable to play games as he had polio, so his tutor got him interested in falconry. He bought a kestrel from Harrods, for £5 and was allowed to keep the bird at school and fly it during term time. Gordon carried on hawking while at Corpus Christi Cambridge but the war put an end to his sport, as it did for so many. He joined the Mountain Artillery, serving in Iceland, Italy and India, and afterwards, in 1947, became a farmer in Devon. It was not until 1970 after raising a family, that he was able to resume flying and breeding peregrines. With other falconers, he rented grouse moors and with his special bird, ‘Bhary’, had great fun and some amazing flights. He flew peregrines until he was 82 and then enjoyed helping and watching Merlins fly on Dartmoor. At his funeral a friend walked beside his coffin with a Merlin and stayed with him for the entire service. His headstone is engraved with a peregrine. ‘Gordon may be best described as a falconer of the old school; he has always carried his falcon on his right hand and remained staunchly right winged ever since’ (R.B. Treleaven, p. 7-8, BFC, 1984).

(particularly crabs and shells), many of these notes again seemingly in Latham’s hand but with some later additions and pasted in news cuttings, probably by the later owner R[ichard] L[onguet] Orlebar [1806-1870] of Hinwick House, Bedfordshire, whose ownership signature appears below that of John Latham in the final plate volume, additionally several sketches presumed by Latham, in vol. 3 a natterjack toad with notes beneath, seven pen and pencil outline sketches of whales and dolphins, a pencil and wash drawing

The majority of annotations are references taken from standard works, mostly c. 1780s-1830s, titles include Philosophical Transactions, Linnean Transactions, Gentleman’s Magazine, Times, Monthly Review, etc.. Many are also taken from Pennant Manuscripts and a few from Latham’s original observations, a few of these being initialled ‘JL’. An interesting association copy. Latham lived at Romsey between 1796 and 1819 and in 1811 his revision of Pennant’s British Zoology was published. This would seem to be Latham’s copy of an earlier edition into which he made notes for the revised edition. However, a large number of the annotations with dated sources are from after 1811 and this information would not have appeared in that edition. In 1819 he was forced to sell a great part of his library and museum and moved to Winchester. These books must have survived that sale and remained with him at the time of his death in 1837. The Pennant manuscripts are held by the County Record Office, Warwickshire. Manuscripts and letters by Latham are held by the Natural History Museum and the Linnean Society. (6) £3000-5000

"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 20% 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.
