In June 1741 he was elected Professor of Poetry at Oxford, a post he held for ten years, during the course of which he delivered the thirty-four “Praelectiones de sacra poesi Hebraeorum” that were to make his name and were published in 1753. ‘In 1762 Lowth published ‘A Short Introduction to English Grammar’, in which he extolled the simplicity of the form and construction of the English language while remarking that it could still not rival the most ancient of languages, Hebrew, in this respect. Lowth intended his work to provide a succinct guide to grammar and to overcome imperfect or imprecise usage, even when found in the Authorized Version of the English Bible. It proved immensely popular in Great Britain and America and was published dozens of times during the 18th century alone; more than 34,000 copies had been printed by 1781’ (DNB). (1) £200-300

An archive of 108 wood engravings by Eric Gill collated into an album formerly belinging to Douglas Pepler, Ditchling, 1911-22, all printed on paper and mounted into an album of 118 pencil-numbered pages of handmade, uncut white paper, mostly printed in black on white wover paper, one signed in pencil (P31), pasted as singles and multiples to rectos and some versos throughout, the majority neatly captioned in ink by (?)Pepler and at least one other hand, some with Ditchling (and a few A or E) numbers, additional pencil notes (?by Douglas Cleverdon) and Ditchling numbers with a full listing of numbers to first blank page, additionally six duplicate wood engravings (incl. three on a loosely inserted unnumbered bifolium), plus four engravings unattributed and six engravings by Elizabeth Gill and others, various sizes, orig. brown card wrappers, remains of mounted printed title ‘Engravings, Eric Gill’ to upper cover with ownership details below, ‘To be returned to Douglas Pepler, Ditchling Common, Sussex’, indistinctly struck through in pencil with the new ownership details below for Douglas Cleverdon, Q[ueen] Charlotte St, Bristol, covers soiled and worn, 4to (280 x 230mm, 11 x 9ins) An important collection of the full range of Gill’s wood engravings from his Ditchling period. ‘Gill had moved to Ditchling in Sussex at the end of 1907, whilst keeping his workshop in Hammersmith. It was at Hammersmith, where they were near neighbours, that Gill first met Douglas Pepler. Pepler, was among other things, a publicist and publisher. His involvement in the publication of the Hampshire House Workshops, which he founded, led him to commission Gill to engrave blocks for illustrations. In August 1911 the Diary records six hours of ‘wodd engraving for Pepler’. In 1915 Pepler decided to earn a living with a hand printing press and moved to Ditchling to do so, occupying the house which the Gills and their family of three girls had vacated on their move to the more self-sufficient environment of Ditchling Common. Pepler’s Press, his personality, his talents as publicist and publisher were all-importatn to Gill’s development as an engraver during the years 1914- to 1924. On a practical level alone Pepler’s establishment of his Press was especially helpful. Previously Gill had no access to a printing press for proofing his blocks, one reason why records of his early engraved work are so scanty. He now lost no time ... The years from 1916 to 1924 were for Gill those of the ‘Ditchling Community’ formalised in 1921 by the establishment of the craft Guild of St Joseph and St Dominic... A look through the engravings of these years, over 200 of them, shows his deep involvement with the St Dominic’s Press. Pepler must have been very dependent on Gill and used his skill almost as a printer uses a commercial block-maker for the production of verything that was not type. In fact Gill cut at least two alphabets of wood type for St Dominic’s Press, and a type specimen of the time shows Gill’s large capitals (P146a, last line) printed alongside Pepler’s Caslon’, Christopher Skelton (ed.), ‘Eric Gill: The Engravings’, (1990), pp. 8-9. This work provides a cross-reference for Ditchling and Physick numbers. The album contains 108 engravings referenced by Physick: Nos. 11 (red and black), 14, 18, 22, 30, 31 (signed in pencil), 36-42, 44-46, 48, 50, 51 (folding), 52-54, 57-62, 64-88, 89 (gold on black), 90 (red on white), 91111, 113, 135-140, 143, 144, 146 (Alphabet 1, folding), 150, 151 (red), 152-157, 163, 173, 179, 180, 183-187, 191, 201, 208-210.

Matania exhibited regularly at the Royal Academy and Royal Institute from 1908 and his work appeared in most of the principal magazines in Britain and America. He was a popular illustrator for advertising, posters and catalogues, working for Ovaltine, Burberry’s and many others.

REGINALD JAMES LLOYD (1926-) Reginald James Lloyd was born in Hereford and at the age of two the family moved to Dawlish in South Devon. After army service, he attended Exeter School of Art for one term, where he was taught by the artist George Adamson. After this he struck out on his own, and gradually developed his style independently. His impressive output includes painting, printmaking, sculpture, stained glass and large scale architectural projects. His work relates to the landscape of the South West and its ancient standing stones and hill forts, such as Avebury, Silbury Hill, Stonehenge and Maiden Castle. His strong individual style bears comparison to British Neo-Romantic painting of the 1940s and 50s. Lloyd and his family moved to Bideford, Devon in 1956 (where he has lived ever since), and in the following year he was invited to exhibit his work at the Fifth Devon Festival, alongside the work of Piper, Hitchens, Epstein, Gaudier Brzeska, Rodin and Picasso. The poet Ted Hughes was a close friend from the early sixties and a regular visitor to Lloyd’s home in Bideford. They collaborated on a series of silk screen prints for Hughes’ Crow poems: King of Carrion, That Moment, Crows Last Stand, and Crow and the Birds, in 1970 (see lot 462), and illustrated books of poetry including What is the Truth?, The Cat and the Cuckoo (see lot 463), The Mermaid’s Purse, and Earth Dances (see lot 461), all published between 1984 and 1995. Lloyd’s work with and for Ted Hughes forms an important part of the artist’s output.

Four submarines of this type were ordered using the keels of four unfinished “K” class submarines. “M1” was completed in April 1918, three “M” class were completed, two by Vickers and one by Armstrong Whitworth, “M4” incomplete at the time of the Armistice was sold for scrap. “M1” was sunk in 1925 after being in collision with a collier at night approximately 35 miles south of Plymouth, she was lost with all hands. In 1990 the wreckage was discovered, but the location was not precise. In 1999 a diving team, after much research, relocated “M1”, so her final resting place is now known. (1) £1500-2500

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 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.

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.
