234* Alken (Samuel). ‘Bookseller & Author’, pub. J.R.Smith, Sept. 25th 1784, etching after H. Wigstead, early hand colouring, slight spotting to left hand margin, 325 x 375 mm, mounted, framed and glazed, together with Rowlandson (Thomas), Dr. Syntax & Bookseller, 1819, aquatint with original hand colouring, a little faded, 115 x 185 mm, mounted, framed and glazed The first decribed item is a rare etching, with a somewhat controversial attribution. The image is very much in the style of Thomas Rowlandson and although the artist is listed as Wigstead this is very doubtful. Rowlandson and Wigstead were friends and in 1784 travelled together to the Isle of Wight. We know that this excursion resulted in nearly seventy drawings by Rowlandson. There are two companion engravings - ‘The Poet and Bookseller’ and ‘The Manager and Author’, both bearing the inscription H.Wigstead delint and S.Alken fecit. Wigstead had exhibited drawings with these titles at the Royal Academy. However both the Royal Academy and Wigstead were ridiculed in the St. James’s Chronicle as the drawings were quite clearly by Rowlandson. If Wigstead did have any input into the image it was minimal and any attribution to him is at best generous. There are at least four versions of the original watercolour known to exist and one was sold by Chrities on 9th June 2005 with a clear attribution to Rowlandson. Perhaps the strongest indicator as to the originator of this print is to be found in ‘Dr. Syntax goes in Search of the Pituresque’ [1809]. Plate twenty-five has the title ‘Dr. Syntax & Bookseller’ and is quite cleary an adaption by Rowlandson of ‘Bookseller & Author’. A copy of this print is the second described item in this lot.

When I wrote the poem, I inserted all the true names of its persons and places, and, only on getting the printed “proofs”, was struck by the inconveniency of mentioning folks still “alive and (not unlikely) kicking”: so, I cancelled them altogether, substituting the imaginary ones which were published - even then, under the protest of the Attorney-General Coleridge, who considered them still “libellous”: but I ran the risk preserving the “proofs” which you see - and, I hope, are pleased to accept.

This poem, in blank verse, tells a story of sexual intrigue, religious obsession and violent death in contemporary Paris and Normandy. It is closely based on the true story of the death, supposedly by suicide, of the jewellery heir Antoine Mellerio. Raised on a luxurious estate in the shadow of Church Towers, Mellerio is torn between the imposing demands of religious devotion and the sensual, materialist side of his nature (the “turf”, as Browning calls it). He takes a mistress called Anna de Beaupre and houses her in a luxuriously renovated Priory. Mellerio’s mother is scandalised over the affair that he tries to commit suicide but fails. On the death of his mother, he is even more riddled with guilt and breaks off his relationship with Hannah, and while trying to burn her letters, mutilates himself by burning off both his hands. He resumes the affair nonetheless, but tries to work off his guilt by making donations to the Church nearby. Believing he will be miraculously borne by the angels of the Virgin Mary to La Ravissante he throws himself from the belvedere of the Priory as an act of faith. In his will, he divides his estate between the Church and Anna which is contested within his family who believe he was insane when he made the will; but the courts uphold the will, declaring Mellerio’s death to have been an accident.

Browning followed the case in great detail including going so far as to interview residents of the district. He wrote the poem while the lawsuit over the will was still under appeal and on advice of Lord Coleridge he changed the real names of the main protaganists: Antoine Mellerio to Leonce Miranda, Anna de Beaupre to Clara de Millefleurs and Saint-Aubin to Saint-Rambert. This author’s suppressed proof copy retains the original names. The poem with the names changed was published in May 1873 when, unsurprisingly, in view of its themes, it received mixed reviews. Later Arthur Symons was to praise it as was G. K. Chesterton who wrote that ‘Browning was one of those wise men who can perceive the terrible and impressive poetry of the police news which is commonly treated as vulgarity’. See Mark Siegchrist, ‘Rough in brutal print: The legal sources of Browning’s Red Cotton Night-cap Country’ (1981).

Memoirs of Early Naval Life, in reply to my dear niece Emily; and dedicated to her sister, Margaret Oliphant Graeme, in gratitude for her incessant kindness in alleviating the melancholy of my late sad bereavement, (For Private Circulation only), Teignmouth: printed by G.H.

Alexander Graeme (1798-1884) asked his father at the age of thirteen to allow him to become a sailor. His father reluctantly gave permission, and Alex was commissioned to the Queen Charlotte, subsequently serving on the Granicus, the Vengeur, the Orontes, and the Falmouth. By his own account Alex led a breezy life of escapades, practical joking, and brushes with authority. When he left the navy he married, and eventually settled at Fonthill, Shaldon, South Devon, where he planted a field with the Union Jack in laurels, a maze similar to that at Hampton Court, and a wooden tower which swayed in the wind.

Both were competent artists and over the rest of the decade Queen Victoria etched some sixty-two plates and Prince Albert twentyfive. Most compositions were based on paintings and drawings in their collection, but some were also based on each other's sketches. The plates were etched at Windsor Castle and some proof impressions were pulled from a small press there. Occasionally, however, the plates were entrusted to a local printer called Brown who had instructions to return all impressions and plates to the Castle. The Queen and Prince Albert never intended these very personal etchings to stray outside of a very tight circle of family and friends. However, in 1847, a local journalist called Jasper Tomsett Judge, who specialised in Royal reportage for the gossip hungry tourist trade, managed to acquire sixty unauthorised prints for ÂŁ5 from a journeyman employee of Brown's called Middleton. Intending to launch an exhibition in London with William Strange, Judge produced a catalogue of the prints which was intended for sale. The press releases in the newspapers advertising the event reached the attention of the Queen and Prince Albert who were clearly not amused. A wave of lawsuits and injunctions against Judge, Strange and Middleton quickly followed and the exhibition and catalogue were never to be. As such, very few etchings by either Royal exist outside of the private collections at Windsor (who have a full set) and the British Museum (who were given a set by King George V). Examples are also owned by the Victoria & Albert Museum as well as small numbers in private hands. (6) ÂŁ1000-1500

508 Vedanta. Translation of the Jogue Bashust Transcribed from Lord Teignmouth’s Copy which he Lent to the Revd. William Ward of Serampore, (translated 1784), manuscript, paper watermarked 1813, title and 314 numbered pages written in a clear fair hand throughout, some corrections and marginalia in a second neat and more upright hand (Reverend William Ward?), pp. 254-56 blank, small Bristol Museum Education Society book label and other marks to front endpapers, contemp. half calf over marbled boards, heavily rubbed and sl. wear to extremities, 4to (25 x 20 cm)

Lord Teignmouth was the first president of the British and Foreign Bible Society, and a close friend of the Orientalist Sir William Jones (1746-1794). In 1784, he translated, in three manuscript volumes, the Persian version of an abridgment of the Jog Bashust. 'This work is supposed to contain the doctrines delivered by Birmha, the Revealer of the Bedes, or the only existing original Scriptures of the religion of Birmha to his son Bashust. It consists of an eloquent exposition, replete with Oriental imagery, of the sublime but cold metaphysical theology, apathetic piety, and acetic morals of the Vedanti School of Brhminical Hindooism', (Memoir of the Life and Correspondence of John Lord Teignmouth, vol. 1, 1843), pp. 110-111. A few pages later on page 122 a letter from Shore to Professor Ford dated 25th March 1786 refers to the translation once more: 'I had prepared some translations of Persian Versions of the Hindoo Author; and was at the trouble, before I left Bengal to collate them with original Sanscrit; but there are so few who have any curiosity to read them, that I have taken no further trouble about them; and the Jog Bashust, or Jog Vesesht, which is the name of the book I translated, is consigned to dust'. Whether the manuscript was destroyed or merely discarded and forgotten is not entirely clear but this manuscript transcription suggests that it may have at least survived into the nineteenth century for this copy to have been made. William Ward (1769-1823) was a Baptist missionary who sailed for India in 1799. He proceeded to the settlement of Serampore where his time was chiefly occupied in superintending the printing press, by means of which the bible, translated into more than twenty languages was disseminated throughout India. The printing office was destroyed by fire in 1812 and it seems likely, bearing in mind the paper watermark date of 1813, that this transcription was made some time during Ward's final years before his death of cholera at Serampore in 1823. (1) ÂŁ700-1000

This is likely the only surviving copy of this translation, John Shore (First Baron Teignmouth, 1751-1834) having destroyed his own copy (see old DNB, vol. 18, p. 151). This copy contains a title page with advertisement to the reader to verso, an introduction by the Persian translator, a preface to the abridgment by Obey dun Pundit and six chapters beginning with Byrang Poorkoron. In the advertisement to the reader, the original purpose of this volume, the Sancrit exposition of the doctrines of Vedanta, are explained: 'The Joog Bashust, or Instructions of Bashust are supposed to contain the Doctrines delivered by Brimah the revealer of the Bedes to his Son Bashust. The latter communicated them to Ban Chund. Balinek a learned Teacher some ages afterwards at the solicitation of his pupil Birht Deway recited them to him, and Birt Deway compiled them in a Volume. This edition now exists in the Shanscrit language and contains 32,000 shlokes or stanzas. Abey Dun, a Cashmirian pundit made an abridgment of this Book in 6000 shlokes; this edition has been translated into Persian. Some other author made an abstract as he affirms & I have reason to believe, from the original Shanscrit, into Persian. This abstract is now translated into English. It has been not only compared with the Persian Version; which is lengthened unnecessarily by frequent repetitions; but the English translation has been explained to a Pundit and compared with the compilation of Birt Deway.'

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 19.5% 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 19.5% 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.
