220 World. Ruysch (Johann), Universalior Cogniti Orbis Tabula Ex Recentibus Confecta Observationibus, Rome, [1507-08], uncoloured engraved map on two sheets (as published), slight staining to corners of lower margins, slight strengthening on verso, 405 x 535mm As a geographer and cartographer very little is known about Ruysch. However, his map of the world is a major cartographic milestone in that he draws from both Portuguese and Spanish discoveries and updates dramatically the Contarini-Rosselli map of the world. The map first came to prominence in the 1507 edition of Ptolemy’s ‘Geography’; some copies contained a revolutionary new world map compiled by Ruysch. In the following year the title-page announced the inclusion of a new world map that displayed the new discoveries of the European navigators. Marcus Beneventanus, an Italian monk, wrote a description of the map which was based on a conversation with Ruysch, who claimed he had sailed from Bristol to fifty-three degrees north latitude and then due west. It is not thought that Ruysch had been with John Cabot who reached North America before 1500, but it is widely accepted that he reached the great fishing banks of Newfoundland. The Spanish, Portuguese and the English had all reached North America and the place name derivation usually indicates the nationality of the explorer. Ruysch’s map outline is based on Contarini, however Ruysch closes the Northwest passage and maps the shape of the West Indies and South America very differently. Ruysch also includes written observations about the manners and customs of the natives as well as the indigenous fauna and alleged mineral deposits. He mentions cannibalism, wild beasts, pearls and gold. One inscription tells us that Portuguese navigators had sailed as far as fifty degrees south without finding the end of the continent. He states that ‘as far as this, Spanish navigators have come, and they have called this land on account of its greatness, the New World. in so much as they have not wholly explored it..... further than the present termination, it must remain thus imperfectly delineated until it is known in what direction it extends’. Ruysch also omits Cipango (Japan) because he finds that the Spanish discoveries and those of Marco Polo clash and therefore he regards the information as unreliable. Ruysch also includes four fictitious islands in the Arctic Ocean, a conceit that was perpetuated sixty years later by Gerard Mercator. The influence of Ruysch’s map cannot be understated. Only two other printed maps showed America at this date: The Contarini and the Waldseemuller maps. Ruysch’s map, widely circulated because of its inclusion in a Ptolemaic atlas, was hugely significant and it is perfectly fair to argue that most Europeans had their first sight and comprehension of the vastness of the Americas thanks to Ruysch’s fan-shaped ‘Tabula’. This example is state five with the ‘Pelagus Bone Speranze’ legend added below the Cape of Good Hope.

On Sunday last died the most valuable Negro we owned. I bought him last year from Mr. Shipton & drew on you to pay £65 for him, but I would not have taken double that money for him he was so faithfull & usefull a Negro. He insisted to his dying hour that Moco Jack had poisoned him with a Tannio he gave him of which he did not eat but a little, finding it disagreeable to his taste. I examined all I could into the matter but did not find sufficient grounds to believe it, & what made me disbelieve it most was that neither in his eight days illness nor when he was dead did he swell in the least or any Blots appear in his Skin which are usuall in Cases of Poison; However to be further satisified I had him opened & examined by two Doctors, but they could discover no sign of it. If after all our Enquiry the Villain should be conscious he occasioned his Death, with what Security will he not play such Tricks for the future. I should think myself happy to have new Negros to the Value of him & Tom ‘his sworn Companion in all Mischief’ in their Room, for I have still some doubt that he is guilty’.

IMPORTANT LITERARY & HISTORICAL AUTOGRAPHS

411* Beechey (Sir William, 1753-1839, Circle of). Portrait of Lady Frances Caroline Wedderburn Webster (1793-1837), oil on canvas half-length portrait of Lady Frances Webster seated, in a plum velvet dress with Gothic dentate trim, holding a letter in her left hand against a draped background, 91.5 x 71cm (36 x 28ins), giltmoulded frame Lady Frances Wedderburn Webster (née Annesley) was one of the celebrated beauties in Regency high society, whose amorous adventures were the subject of much gossip and speculation at the time. She was born in 1793, the daughter of the Earl of Mountnorris, and at the age of 17 married James Wedderburn Webster, one of Byron's circle of friends. She soon became disenchanted with her uninspiring and unfaithful husband and embarked on numerous love affairs. In 1813 she became involved in an intense relationship with Byron himself. They even discussed plans for eloping together and, at 2 o'clock one morning, in a corridor at Byron's ancestral home, Newstead Abbey, she offered to yield herself to him but, as Byron put it in a letter to Lady Melbourne, he "spared" her. In 1815 Lady Frances became involved with the Duke of Wellington, who paid assiduous attention to her and even wrote a hurried note from the field of Waterloo. In 1818 and 1819, Lady Frances entered into another intense romantic relationship, this time with one of Byron's close friends, Scrope Davies. However, Scrope fled abroad early in 1820 to escape his gambling debts. He never forgot the attractions of Lady Frances, and in 1828 wrote to a friend 'Did you ever see Lady Frances? She is the only person I ever beheld in whom was everything that the eye looks for in woman. She, and she alone, of whom I have ever seen, had that beauty over which the eye glides with giddy delight, incapable of fixing upon any particular claim.' Provenance: By family descent to the late Sir Peter Scarlett, former British ambassador to the Holy See in Rome, and subsequently to one of Scrope's great-great-great-nephews. Literature: T.A.J. Burnett, The Rise and Fall of a Regency Dandy, 1981, illustrated opposite page 116. John Stuart, Byron and the Websters, 2008, illustrated page 20. (1) £800-1200

A fine association copy. Edward Irving (1792-1834) was a Scottish Clergyman and good friend of Thomas Carlyle. Irving was one time the tutor of Thomas Carlyle’s future wife Jane Welsh, the essayist and letter writer. Irving and Welsh had previously fallen in love with each other but Irving was unable to break off his engagement with Isabella Martin. Carlyle and Welsh met in 1821 and were married in 1826. Irving is the subject of the second and largest part of the first volume of Carlyle’s Reminiscences, ed. James Anthony Froude (1881): ‘Edward Irving died thirty-two years ago (December 1834) in the first month of our adventurous settlement here. The memory of him is still clear and vivid with me in all points: that of his first and only visit to us in this house, in this room, just before leaving for Glasgow (October 1834) which was the last we saw of him, is still as fresh as if it had been yesterday; and he has a solomn, massive, sad and even pitiable though not much blameable, when heart even blameable, and to me always dear and most friendly aspect, in those vacant kingdoms of the past. He was scornfully forgotten at the time of his death, having, indeed, sunk a good while before out of the notice of the more intelligent classes ...’, vol. 1, p. 69. (1) £1000-1500

Churchill’ with trademark flourish beneath, a little crackling to image borders, 21 x 17cm, framed and glazed, contemp. sticky label of Huber Art Co. at [124 W.] 7th St., [Cincinnati, Ohio] to backing A very rare double-signed vintage photograph of this most famous portrait of Churchill, one of the most reproduced portraits in photography. The photograph was taken by Karsh in 1941 just after Churchill had addressed the Canadian Parliament. Karsh recalls the event in his book ‘Faces of Our Time’ (1971): ‘He was in no mood for portraiture and two minutes were all he would allow me as he passed from the House of Commons Chamber to the anteroom. Two niggedly minutes in which I must try to put on film a man who had already written or inspired a library of books, baffled all his biographers, filled the world with his fame, and me, on this occasion, with dread.’ Churchill arrived in the room with a cigar stuck between his teeth and a scowling expression, ‘regarding my camera as he might the German enemy’. Noting the cigar’s seeming incompatibility with the occasion, Karsh removed the cigar. ‘At this the Churchillian scowl deepened, the head was thrust forward belligerently, and the hand placed on the hip in an attitude of anger’. The steadfast, defiant and unconquerable image was emblematic of Churchill and England at this time. Churchill later said to Karsh, ‘You can even make a roaring lion stand to be photographed’.

The Boston paper has come regularly every week, and I thank you for sending them; but pray, that you may not let the continuance of it be attended with the least inconvenience to yourself, or the work you are engaged in. Your sensibility greatly overpays any civilities you may have met with at this place. What you are pleased to consider in the light of an obligation, we view as pleasure; & shall be happy if opportunities wd. enable us to repeat them. The same inducements which brought the celebrated Mrs McCauly (per Graham) & Mrs Hale[y] to Boston wi[ll] more than probably prompt them to se[e] other states of the U[ni]on; and if led so far Southwa[rdly] I should t[hink] [?your] self honored by their calling upon me. We have nothing new in this Quarter - My time is spent in the matter you were witness to. I am now indeed, repairing my pack saddles, and preparing for a journey to the Western Country; where it is necessary for me to pay some attention to the property I hold in it, or suffer, after having attained Patents (12 years ago) & encountering much expence, my land to be taken from me by occupants, who do not trouble their heads so much about the Right, as the convenience of the Land they are disposed to settle upon. Mrs Washington, and all around me, join in best wishes for you, & compliments to Mrs Gordon - we are all w[e]ll - Mrs L. Washington has not encreased her family yet. with gt. esteem & reg.’, 2 pp. with integral address panel addressed to the Reverend Doctor Gordon, Jamaica Place, Massachusetts Bay, signed ‘Go.

The existence of this letter is inferred through the existence of Gordon’s reply on 30th August: “Your obliging letter of the 10th instt was recd the last Thursday” - see ‘Papers of Washington Digital Edition’, vol. 2, p. 28. This letter is not included, its location unknown, though there are several other letters to Gordon transcribed. The letter written by Washington immediately preceeding this one is found in volume 27, addressed to John Ariss and dated 8th August 1784; the following letter, dated 11th August, is addressed to Tench Tilghman. The recipient of this letter was the Reverend William Gordon, a British Presbyterian Minister, who was an early supporter of the Colonists and emigrated to America in 1770. He became the Pastor of the Third Congregational Church in Roxbury, Massachusetts, and was later appointed Chaplain to both houses of the provincial Congress. Desiring to write a comprehensive history of the American Revolution he returned to London in 1786 for fear that he would not be able to publish an impartial account in the United States. He ran into similar difficulties in England and his heavily revised version was finally published as ‘The History of the Rise, Progress, and Establishment of the Independence of the United States of America: including an Account of the Late War, and of the Thirteen Colonies, from their origin to that period’ in New York in 1788. Catharine Macaulay Graham (173191) was an English historian, whose ‘History of England’ was published in eight volumes between 1763 and 1783. (1) £7000-10000

One autograph letter and two typed letters signed ‘Henry’, Stiffkey, Norfolk, (one with no place), undated, c. 1940, to Peggy, the hand-written letter in red ink begins ‘A swirl & mass of work - eleven hours a day on harvest ninety letters to reply to - claims for sleep run over - etc., etc., etc., - long journey back, & tired - so forgive absence of letter ... I’m also in a state of interior chaos ... the old old problem - an artist and a family can’t work together. I suppose I’ll settle down & submit ... well Peggy, my dear, it was nice with you in Ham, & we all loved seeing you, & the cider party was fun, wasn’t it ...’, continuing on the second page in blue pencil in a larger hand, ‘Tell Don Federico I’ve looked for the photographs of the Exmoor walk but they are mislaid ...’, a second letter with complaints about daily drudgery, ‘Here life is bloody dull. Nite after nite I sit in my little cottage, trying to work, hating it; but nothing else to do. no one to see; called a spy in the village; wife and I no longer on speaking terms. Not even mutual respect left. Too minds which cannot get on, or see anything in common; like, say, Chamberlain and Hitler; both men have an immense following, in their own countries. Both are much better than their opponents in opposite countries declare. Both speak the truth as they feel it; tho the standards of conduct are entirely different; they don’t touch anywhere. So here in this home - or the home down the street, where the kids live with their mother wherein father enters too often miserable and silent, or continually critical, why this undercooked yet again? or why this wasn’t cooked in our new electric oven, why send it out to a cottage to be cooked? Why 17 turkeys are allowed to die, because the lamp wasn’t turned up enough and they got cold? Why the hut wherein they shelter clotted with six weeks muck, etc?., etc., etc., etc., etc., Ad nauseum. I won’t bother you with the old stuff anymore. I think I know what you mean about interior chaos ..., I’m even glad you have lots of fun. I wish I could never do anything I didn’t want to! Entire life, save for rare moments, (one was that night when we drank the cider) is against the grain. So many mouths to feed and such poor material to do it with ! I assure you every sentence is a lifetime of anguish to get on paper. I’m not really an artist or a poet. I made myself do certain things, at a cost of normality. Like Hitler; and all may fall down on him. He tried to make a perfect country, and it was too much for everyone, and he had to keep on trying to cover up or what was not succeeding until in the end he has to break his whole principle of race and again, to comprise with his life-antagonism, Bolshevism. He tried to make his dreams come real; whereas dreams are dreams and men are men in the work a day world, and not all geniuses. (Genius is abnormality; men are normality). So, like many other Seers and prophets, Hitler will ...’, later referring again to their night together ‘In the old dark stables of Tompo and the scrumpy cider’, signed in blue pencil with postscript in red ink, remembering him to Peggy’s mother, each 2 pp., the third letter 5 pp. on three sheets, with manuscript corrections, largely of a political nature, beginning ‘No no no no no no no. “No matter what the cost”. Child, that is newspaper talk, and has no connexion with reality. It is, rather, money talk. International loans, banks. I know what I am talking about. How can you know, child, what the soldiers felt most of the time in the real world war? ...’, the final two pages largely taken up with a poem titled “The War for Civilisation”, all 4to, plus two related printed flyers and a newscutting (6)

The notes at pp. 280, 313, 339 and 343 are in Boswell’s handwriting. Bought of Tregaskis 3.VIII.93 George H. Radford’. Provenance: the property of the descendants of Sir George Heynes Radford (1852-1917), who was MP for Islington from 1906 until his death.

In total it contains around 2000 cards handwritten by Sir George, of which thirty of the entries detail first and early editions by Boswell and Johnson, including this copy of ‘Corsica’ with the note ‘Boswell’s own copy, interleaved and with some corrections in his handwriting.’ Radford’s note on the front pastedown indicates that he purchased the book from James Tregaskis, who was a second-hand bookseller in High Holborn. Both Radford and Tregaskis were members of the exclusive Johnson Club, which was limited to just thirty-one members who were particularly interested in Johnson and his contemporaries (see lot 440). Tregaskis bought several books on Corsica (lot 60) in the sale of Lord Auchinleck’s celebrated library in June 1893, which included important holdings of Boswell and Johnson. This copy of ‘Corsica’ has the following points as noted by Rothschild: 1) The Table of Contents follows the Preface; 2) D2r (p.51) present in both states, i.e. bound in is the leaf in first state with the words ‘John Home’ incorrectly placed, following the first quotation, and loosely inserted is the leaf in second state, with the words ‘John Home’ correctly placed, following the second quotation; 3) E2 (pp.67/8) is a cancellans (as in all recorded copies), and lines 11 and 12 on p.67 read ‘enjoying the noble fief of Istria; 4) Z3 is a cancellans (as usual) with ‘Mariana’ corrected to ‘Mariani’; 5) folding map precedes title and is without imprint or scale. Misprints are as recorded in Pottle, except for p.93 and p.296 which are corrected (as in Rothschild 442), with additional misprint on p.172 ‘tha the’, instead of the usual misprint ‘that the’.

1023 [Hutton, James]. Abstract of a Dissertation Read in the Royal Society of Edinburgh, upon the Seventh of March, and Fourth of April, M, DCC, LXXXV, concerning the System of the Earth, its Duration, and Stability, n.p., [1785], pp. [1]30 plus final blank, title a little spotted with author’s signed presentation inscription at foot, ‘Matthew Bo[u]lton Esqr from James Hutton’, modern richly gilt-dec. tan calf with cockerell endpapers and red leather title label to spine, slim 8vo in 4’s (196 x 126mm), together with a loosely inserted photocopy of a letter concerning this copy, written by V[ictor] Eyles to previous owner Professor [Henry] Faul, confirming the holograph of Hutton with in the book, the identity of Matthew Boulton [1728-1809, engineer and partner of James Watt], and the exceptional rarity of the pamphlet “10 or at most 12”, plus a stapled photocopy specimen of Hutton’s handwriting, both 1 page, 4to ‘Hutton's theory... was first made public at two meetings of the Royal Society of Edinburgh, early in 1785. The society published it in full in 1788 [in the Transactions of the Royal Society of Edinburgh], but offprints of this paper were in circulation in 1787, and possibly in 1786' (DSB). D. R. Dean states that the offprint was published at some time after January 1786, and cites 'a small number of copies dated 1786', of which only one is presently known, as well as a few dated 1788 ('James Hutton and the History of Geology', p. 25). Hutton's theory, however, 'first appeared in print in a condensed form, in a thirty-page pamphlet entitled Abstract of a Dissertation... Concerning the System of the Earth... which Hutton circulated privately in 1785' (DSB). 'The purpose of this Dissertation is to form some estimate with regard to the time the globe of this earth has existed as a world maintaining plants and animals, to reason with regard to the changes which the earth has undergone, and to see how far an end or termination to this sytem of things may be perceived, from the consideration of that which has already come to pass. As it is not in human record, but in natural history that we are to look for the means of ascertaining what has already been, it is here proposed to examine the appearances of the earth, in order to be informed of operations which have been transacted in time past. It is thus that, from principles of natural philosophy, we may arrive at some knowledge of order and sytem in the oeconomy of this globe, and may form a rational opinion with regard to the course of nature, or to events which are in time to happen' (pp. 3-4). Exceedingly rare (ESTC notes three UK and three USA locations only) and a fine association copy. Matthew Boulton (1728-1809) was a manufacturer and entrepreneur who later formed a business partnership with James Watt to exploit Watt's patent for a steam engine with a separate condenser. Both Boulton and Watt, along with James Hutton, Erasmus Darwin, Josiah Wedgwood and Joseph Priestley were key members of the Birmingham Lunar Society, which met regularly from around 1765 until 1813. It was through the scientist and chemist Joseph Black that James Hutton and James Watt became close friends. Hutton accompanied Watt on his move from Glasgow to Birmingham to begin his partnership with Matthew Boulton in 1774, and that is perhaps when they first met. Besides the presentation of this copy of the Abstract, it is known that Hutton also gave Boulton a copy of the offprint of his 'Theory of the Earth'. On 25 August 1787, Josiah Wedgwood wrote James Watt a letter informing him that Josiah Wedgwood, Junior, would soon send "two books to Mr Watt's address, one for himself and the other for Mr [Matthew] Boulton; they are 'Theory of the Earth', which he has brought with him from Scotland from Doctor Hutton". In 1950 V. A. Eyles located just three copies of this 1787 offprint. (1) £10000-15000 219

He analyses the mathematics of the motion of a pendulum, on which he based his invention of the pendulum clock. The Horologium “was the most original work of this kind since Galileo’s Discorsi ... It ends with 13 theorems (without proofs) on the dynamics of circular motion. Newton in the Principia acknowledges Huygens’s priority here, though Huygens’s work had little influence on his own” (PMM). His treatise was “a work of the highest genius which has influenced every science through its mastery of the principles of dynamics. It is second in scientific importance perhaps only to the Principia” (Charles Singer, A Short History of Science to the Nineteenth Century, 1941, p. 258). PMM 154; Norman 1137; Dibner, Heralds, 145.

Charles Lyell popularised the doctrine of uniformitarianism, first suggested by James Hutton, which presumes that the same natural laws and processes that operate in the universe now, have always operated in the universe in the past and apply everywhere in the universe. The central argument in Principles, and one that had a notable influence on young Charles Darwin, was that 'the present is the key to the past' and that geological remains from a distant past can be explained by reference to observable geological processes now in operation.

He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1697 and a friend of Isaac Newton, to whom this book is dedicated. This work on probablilty theory, in which he developed a series of algebraic and analytic tools for the solution of the problem of coincidences, the method of generating functions, solving differential equations etc. was essentially a gambler’s handbook, giving “the solution of problems concerning the advantage of players and the size of wager which may be lain in a wide variety of games of chance” (Walker). De Moivre even predicted the day of his own death, after noting he was sleeping 15 minutes longer each day, the day he would sleep for 24 hours being the day he died he calculated as being 27 November 1754, the day he did indeed pass away.

Divided into four chapters it first defines a sphere, then its cycles, the rising and settings of the signs and finally movements of the sun and other planets. The later works by Peurbach and his pupil Regiomontanus signalled a new understanding of astronomy and marked the end of the dominance of classical Greek Ptolemaic astronomy. Goff J406; Hain *14111.

Conditions of Sale and Business 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.

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. 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 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.
