GLOUCESTERSHIRE HISTORY & TOPOGRAPHY

THE COLLECTION OF HUW JONES

HUW M JONES 30 July 1932-8 June 2012 The Gloucestershire historian and bibliophile Huw Jones was a member of Council and an elected member of the Library Committee of the Bristol and Gloucestershire Archaeological Society (BGAS), to which he devoted much of his time in later life. His early career was mainly spent abroad. Educated at Northampton Grammar School and Jesus College, Oxford, he took up a posting in Swaziland, rising to become an ADC at Government House. On independence in 1968 he was recruited by the United Nations and went briefly to India before being invited to work for the World Bank in what turned out to be his last post, based in Washington. Fortunate to be able to retire at the age of fifty-five, he and his wife Barbara eventually settled at Shermershill near Bisley. He joined BGAS in 1999 and immediately began to attend residential meetings. His immense enthusiasm for everything he turned his hand to was shown in his researches into the history of the area around Bisley and a result of this was his accumulation of the best private library most people will ever see. He collected a wonderful range of printed works on Gloucestershire, usually in pristine condition and with significant provenance and associations. Some of his books are not to be found elsewhere in the United Kingdom, even in the national libraries. He also began to publish his researches both on the history of Swaziland and of Gloucestershire. A copy of his Annotated Bisley Catalogue (2010), produced in an edition of only ten bound copies, was placed at their request in the special collections of the Bodleian Library. His most recent work to appear was The illustrations for Garter Bigland’s Historical Collections of Gloucestershire (2011), in which he disentangles for the first time the complex publication history of these plates.

Sir Robert Atkyns, MP and topographer was somewhat overshadowed by his father, who as chief baron of the exchequer was speaker of the House of Lords between 1689 and 1693. Atkyns refused to take the oath of allegiance to William III and retired to Pinbury Park in Gloucestershire. The first of the three major Gloucestershire antiquaries, the other two being Ralph Bigland (1712-1784) and Samuel Rudder (1726-1801), Atkyns collected material for parish histories in an attempt to record the population of each parish, based on the number of houses therein and the yearly birth and burial numbers. Pinbury Park, a medieval manor house, was later remodelled and renovated by Ernest Gimson and Ernest and Sidney Barnsley who lived there from 1894-1901. (1) £3000-4000

Garter King of Arms, &c., together with Views of the Churches at Bath and Wells’, the illustrations in this volume also arranged alphabetically by village or town, except Gloucester Cathedral illustrations included towards rear, the 800 engravings include country views, seats, churches and public buildings, armorials and antiquities, maps and plans, the collection holds a total of approx. 200 folio or folding plates, a hand-col. folding map of Gloucestershire by J. & C.

The publication history of this first part and the ‘Continuations’ is complex and involves succeeding generations of the Bigland and Nichols families; see R.

St. Stephen’s Review, June 8th. 1888, colour printed lithograph, slight soiling, old folds, 510 x 320mm A fascinating political cartoon depicting Lord Salisbury as St. George slaying the dragon Gladstone. St. Stephen’s Review was a Tory leaning periodical so unsurprisingly it sides with Lord Salisbury against the Liberal Prime Minister Gladstone. The cartoon is a clever polemic against Irish Home rule (note Gladstone’s forked tongue). The bill, which was championed by Gladstone was highly contentious and divided the Liberals to such a degree that the bill was defeated in parliament and the Conservatives were swept into power at the next election. Mecham acknowledges Lillie Tennant in a note in the lower left margin. Tennant was a precocious school girl who deigned a series of anthropomorphic maps under the alias of ‘Aleph’.

The embargo was short-lived, but long enough to give Reith the idea of publishing a dedicated listings magazine. The first edition of The Radio Times, 'the official organ of the BBC', duly appeared on news stands on 28 September 1923. At first, Radio Times was a joint venture between the BBC and publisher George Newnes Ltd, who produced, printed and distributed the magazine. But in 1925 the BBC took over editorial control, and by 1937 the entire operation was in-house, where it has remained ever since' (BBC online). The first agreement that the BBC had with George Newnes Ltd for the publication of Radio Times was a profit-sharing agreement and with editorial control in the hands of the publishers. The first editor was Leonard Crocombe, editor of Titbits. The BBC supplied Crocombe with programme information, the responsibility initially taken on by Arthur Burrows and soon afterwards Herbert Parker. In addition to the Radio Times the BBC added the Radio Supplement from July 1925, this magazine dealing with the foreign programmes that were encouraged by the BBC. Radio Supplement changed its name to World Radio in June 1926. The printing and editorial control of both magazines was taken over by the BBC in the late 1930s and World Radio was amalgamated into Radio Times at the outbreak of war. Following the great success of the Radio Times from first publication there were constant disagreements between the BBC and the publisher Newnes concerning the educational content. This led for calls within the BBC to publish further periodicals of a more high-brow nature. Among the suggestions which were never carried through was Radio Music, a dummy edition of which was produced for the music department and original masthead artwork included with the lot. Herbert Parker stamped out all these new ideas, realising correctly that the general interests of the broad range of readers was suited to the one magazine. (an archive) £500-800

THE ERIC GROVES COLLECTION OF NATURAL HISTORY SPECIMENS

Eric Groves (1923-2012) was born in Sutton, Surrey, on 13 August 1923 and was educated at Sutton County School. He enlisted in the Royal Navy at Chatham in 1942, training as a Sick Berth Attendant and serving in Mombasa, the Maldives and Ceylon. In 1946 he joined the Natural History Museum in London as an assistant in the Botany Department. He researched the herbarium of Sir Hans Sloane, the flora of Tristan Da Cuhna and the collections gathered at Captain James Cook’s landing places in the late 18th Century. He became an authority on the collections made during Captain George Vancouver’s voyage by the naturalist Archibald Menzies. Apart from a number of papers on botany, and entomology, published from 1958-2012, he was co-author of Nature’s Investigator: The Diary of Robert Brown in Australia, 1801-1805 (Canberra, 2001). In the late 1950s and early 60s Eric travelled to the arctic with the British Schools Exploring Society, and he was an active member of a number of natural history societies. He retired in 1984, but continued to publish, to travel extensively, and research the cultivation of lavender and peppermint in Surrey. Richard Groves

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 23.40% 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. 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.
