An important and substantial letter giving first-hand evidence concerning the arrest and trial of missionary John Smith (1792?-1824). The Demerara rebellion of 18 August 1823 was an uprising involving more than10,000 slaves that took place in the Crown colony of DemeraraEssequibo (now part of Guyana). In part the slaves were reacting to poor treatment and a desire for freedom; in addition, there was a widespread, mistaken belief that Parliament had passed a law for emancipation, but it was being withheld by the colonial rulers. Instigated chiefly by Jack Gladstone, a slave at 'Success' plantation, the two-day rebellion also involved his father, Quamina, and other senior members of their church group. Its English pastor, John Smith, was implicated. The largely non-violent rebellion was brutally crushed by the colonists under governor John Murray. They killed many slaves with estimates of the toll from fighting ranging from 100 to 250. After the insurrection was put down, the government sentenced another 45 men to death, and 27 were executed. The executed slaves' bodies were displayed in public for months afterwards as a deterrent to others. John Smith was arraigned in court-martial before Lt. Col. Goodman on 13 October, charged with four offences: 'promoting discontent and dissatisfaction in the minds of the Negro Slaves towards their Lawful Masters, Overseers and Managers, inciting rebellion; advising, consulting and corresponding with Quamina, and further aiding and abetting Quamina in the revolt; failure to make known the planned rebellion to the proper authorities; did not use his best endeavours to suppress, detain and restrain Quamina once the rebellion was under way.' Smith's trial concluded one month later when he was found guilty of the principal charges, and was given the death sentence. Pending an appeal, Smith was transferred from Colony House to prison, where he died of 'consumption' in the early hours of 6 February 1824 (one day after this letter was postmarked on arrival at Plymouth). To minimise the risk of stirring up slave sentiment, the colonists interred him at 4 am. The Royal reprieve arrived on 30 March. News of Smith's death was published in British newspapers and provoked enormous outrage. The case garnered 200 petitions to Parliament and galvanised the abolitionist movement in Britain.

The revolt was general, and extended along a thickly inhabited coast about eighteen, or, twenty miles. With respect to the proceedings of the revolted negroes I know but little, having been myself a prisoner in close confinement for thirteen, or fourteen weeks. Thus much however is certain, that their object was not blood nor devastation. While the negroes belonging to the plantation on which we resided were in the act of rising Mr Smith was among them persuading them to desist from their wicked purpose. They brandishing their cutlasses in his face told him to go home for they were not going to hurt anyone. Seeing me much alarmed they begged of us not to be frightened, that they wanted nothing but the guns and their rights. I enquired why they wanted the guns. They said to keep their manager from shooting them. The guns soon obtained, and after discharging their contents into the air, they withdrew, leaving the estate uninjured and quiet... ', continuing to give details of Mr Smith's arrest a few days later for 'aiding and assisting the rebels', the arresting officer acting on behalf of Captain McTurk, telling how they were forcibly taken away 'under a pretence, first that Mr S had disobeyed the orders of Captain McTurk in refusing to enrol himself in the militia; and then directly afterwards another pretence was alleged, namely, that our remaining in our house could not be accounted for any other

Vincent Wing (1619-1668), English astrologer, astronomer and land surveyor. Born in North Luffenham, Rutland, he was a highly accomplished mathematician and by the age of 20 he was already a professional land surveyor, almanac-maker and astrologer. He is now chiefly remembered as an astronomer and was notable as a champion of the new astronomical systems of Copernicus and Tycho Brahe. However, it was mostly through his work as a land surveyor that he made his living and, in 1664, he published ‘The Art of Surveying’. This manuscript survey gives a rare insight into his practices and presentation of his work. It refers to an open plan field system with the strips of land held by various tenants; a mixture of freehold and copyhold, as the land in Bringhurst was not enclosed until 1804. Tenant names include Sir John Norwich (freehold land) and Richard Green (freehold and copyhold land). Although a few of his maps are known to have survived, no other of his land surveys have been located. £500-800 (1)

Now converted into 18 luxury apartments, the Clifton Down Hotel, was completed in 1865, shortly after the opening of Brunel’s Clifton Suspension Bridge, over which it looks. An interesting collection of names, many of whom stayed and signed more than once (eg. Sir Daniel and Lady Gooch, Henry Irving and Jan Paderewski). Most intriguing is the close coupling of the autographs of Captain Scott and Pauline Chase. Captain Scott is believed to had a mild affair with the Peter Pan actress before his marriage several years earlier. Captain Scott has signed and dated his three night stay just two months before he set sail from Cardiff on the ill-fated Terra Nova expedition from which he would never return. Pauline Chase’s autograph beneath, with the hotel date stamp of just two weeks later, is an intriguing coincidence. Certainly, Pauline Chase is believed to have been playing in the role of Peter Pan at the Prince’s Theatre in Bristol in the 1909-10 season and the juxtaposition of their autographs may simply be happy coincidence. Either way, Pauline Chase certainly knew whose name she was signing underneath and has boldly signed and underlined to leave no room for further autographs on this page. £300-500 (1)

Autograph letter signed, ‘Edward Elgar’, Forli, Malvern, 4 March 1894, to Novello & Co., ‘Enclosed I beg to send a M.S. part-song which I trust you will find suitable for publication in one of your series. It is not so difficult as the other part-songs of mine which you publish: I think therefore it might help to bring those forward as the present one, on account of its greater simplicity may become more widley known than its predecessors’, publisher’s date and acknowledgement note to top and bottom, thick blue pencil note to margin, ‘offer .3.0’, staple holes to upper margin, 2 pages, 8vo

It was revised and re-submitted in 1893, and, though this time accepted by Novello, the song was not published until 1896, in spite of a plea Elgar made to the firm in 1895. Its first appearance in print was in the Musical Times in 1896. The words were written by Elgar’s future wife, Alice, in February 1888, before her engagement to Elgar. £200-300 (1)

Autograph letter signed ‘Edward Elgar’, Forli, Malvern, 16 March 1895, to Novello & Co., thanking them for the specimen proofs of two pages of the part-songs and continuing, ‘The vocal score is admirable but I do not like the style of the separate violin-part. Would it not be better to engrave the violin parts folio and put a note on the 8vo scores that the violin parts are to be had price -?’, continuing to voice his concerns affecting the cost implications and possible sales and noting that, besides, the two violin parts should be printed separately, also noting ‘turning over’ difficulties and with a PS giving one further concern, 4 pages, publisher’s receipt date note and stamp to upper margin of first page and pencil notes for reply at foot of final page, light vertical crease, 8vo (1)

427* Elgar (Edward, 1857-1934).

If, in setting out the pages, the engraver can leave sufficient “rest” for turning over it might be a slight advantage to print together: however, the “turning over” is of vital importance... ‘, concluding with thanks for their courtesy in referring these points to him, 3 pages, publisher’s receipt stamp at head of first page, 8vo

424* Elgar (Edward, 1857-1934). Autograph letter signed, ‘Edward Elgar’, Forli, Malvern, 3 February 1895, to Novello & Co., thanking them for their letter, ‘in accordance with your suggestions I have removed the ad lib. part from the part-songs and have revised the remaining accompts. removing the difficulties: they are now quite easy. I send the M.S. by this post. You are kind enough to ask what my terms would be: I have no basis to go upon except the amount you hve paid me before: taking into consideration the length and scope of the works, as compared with the former compositions, I should think twelve guineas for the two [amount underlined in pencil by the publisher’; but if you should not think this amount right and fair I am quite willing to leave the question of remuneration to you as you have always been so kind hitherto’, with a P.S., ‘I should be so glad if the part song [‘O Happy Eyes’] you took for the Musical Times last year might appear very soon: could you tell me when it is likely to come out?’, publisher’s date stamp at head of first page, 3 pages, 8vo See note to previous lot.

Please note successful bids made via live bidding cannot be invoiced or paid for until the day after an auction. A live bidding fee of 3% + vat will be added to your invoice.

Conditions of Sale and Business 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.

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.

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. 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.

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.

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.
