Perhaps the greatest collective contribution of James de Carle Sowerby (1787-1871) and William Sowerby (1827-1906) to the Victorian scientific scene was the establishment of the Royal Botanic Gardens and Society, in the administration of which the family were heavily involved until the 20th century, best represented here with a series of letters from the Society's honorary president, Francis of Teck. Several of the books in this group bear the bookplate of William Sowerby and one bears the inscription of 'Sowerby's Museum'. The larger portion of the Sowerby family archive remained in family ownership until the 1960s, when the death of William Sowerby's grandson James Frank Sowerby (1887-1968), precipitated its dispersal into the book trade and at auction, much of it acquired by the Natural History Museum (reference I.

182 England & Wales.

Greenough was stung enough by the critisicm to issue a written defense of his actions which was published in ‘Memoir of a Geological Map of England: to Which are Added, an Alphabetical Index to the Hills, and a List of the Hills Arranged According to Counties (1820), p4.’.Smith’s low social staus and background resulted in his work being largely ignored and the Geological Society of London did indeed plagiarise the map, undercutting Smith’s asking price, which eventually pushed Smith to financial ruin and the debtor’s prison. Recognition of his role as ‘The Father of English Geology’ would only follow much later in 1831 when Smith was awarded the Woolaston medal by the Geological Society. Greenough’s map is important in its own right and is now recognised as a separate piece of scholarship but unlike Smith it involved no surveying but relied on other surveyors sending him information which he then collated. £2000-3000 (1)

Cruikshank's version of a bank note (sold with the Bank Restriction Barometer) was designed to illustrate the cruelty inherent in capital punishment.

The woollen trade was an important factor in the wealth and prosperity of England, but with the introduction of new materials and foreign imports, it was though the industry was under threat. An act was passed first in 1666 and then a new version of the act passed in 1678. Its aims were to lessen imports of linen and to encourage woollen and paper manufacturing in Britain. The Act required that when a corpse was buried it should only be dressed in a shroud or garments made of wool. Failure to comply resulted in a £5 forfeiture. Within eight days of the burial, an affidavit had to be provided attesting the burial complied with the Act. This had to be sworn in front of a Justice of Peace or Mayor by two creditable persons. Often the affidavit would be sworn at the same time as the burial and certified by the officiating priest. These affidavits took various forms, some appearing in parish registers, others as a separate register, or others, as here, on a specially printed form. Affidavits in this form survive in archives, but are uncommon elsewhere. The Act was repealed in 1814, although long before then it had been largely ignored. £100-150 (1)

280* Coronation of King George IV. A newly discovered first-hand manuscript account of the Coronation of King George IV on 11 July 1821, as described by the royal jeweller John Bridge, present at the event, written on 25 July 1821 and signed at end by John Bridge, a very neat but increasingly small and sometimes difficult hand, 2 pages with integral blank, laid paper, watermarked ‘John Hall, 1819’, 4to, discovered behind a framed and glazed mezzotint portrait of George Heriot (1563-1624), jeweller to King James I of England and VI of Scotland, by John and Charles Esplens, after David Scougall, 1743, 355 x 235 mm, heavily browned and split along left and lower margins of plate impression with annotation at foot, ‘The Personal Gift of His most Gracious Majesty King George IV. To John [Br]idge on the morning of the 11 July 1821 when He had the honor of finishing in trying on the rich Imperial Brilliant Crown which had been prepared for the Coronation and which was solely used at that august Ceremony, both in the Abbey, and Westminster Hall, on the 19 July 1821; His Majesty was graciously pleased to express His entire approbation of the Crown, Circlet, Sword, Belt and Plume, all of which had been Furnished for the occasion by Rundell, Bridge & Rundell’, signed by John Bridge and dated 1821, the backing paper additionally annotated and signed by John Bridge, ‘The Gift of His Gracious Majesty King George the Fourth to John Bridge, 17 July 1821’ and lower down a note partially obscured by the frame saying that the print belongs to Mr Bridge and is to be framed, the print laid on to a wooden frame, contemporary gilt-moulded frame with cast royal gilt metal crown attached at head, 50 x 37.5 cm, glazed The memorandum was recently discovered at the back of the print, when the owner removed the frame’s backing paper to check for any inscriptions. The two colour-printed and embossed tickets for the Ceremony (21.5 x 16 cm) and the Banquet (19 x 13 cm) that Bridge was given are pasted to what remains of the soiled and frayed backing paper, now separated from the frame. Both tickets are inscribed with their details to lower margin by Bridge and both are somewhat dust-soiled and each with a closed tear. ‘Memorandum in reference to the Print (25 July 1821). This present from the King, arose out of the following circumstance. I delivered the new Brilliant Imperial Crown which had been completed by us for the Coronation, on the 11 July 1821. I had been a considerable time in the Room with His Majesty assisting in fitting it on the kings head, as also the [?] and [?], diamond sword, diamond bell clasp and mount for the plume of heron feathers, all of which met His entire approbation, nothing could be better. The king then said to me “You ought to be present Bridge, in case of any accident, or in case I should want you, indeed continued He I think you must be present at the Ceremony, and I [sha]ll speak to my Lord Great Chamberlain (Lord Gywdeir) to give you a paper ticket that will entitle you to go to all parts of the Abbey and Hall” (which His Majesty was so good as to do that day). He then said “I have been reading the whole ceremony of the Coronation of King James, and among other things have met with a print of His Jeweller, which I have bought, indeed I bought it for you”. He then sent for it from the next room, and upon Mr (?)Froup producing it, His Majesty said “There Bridge I make you a present of it”, and gave it to me with his own hands. He then said “You see he has his costume on, the embroidery I take so beyond that perhaps may be dispensed with, but I really think you ought to have some costume for the occasion, perhaps a sort of long cloak”.

I replied that our situation was principally connected with the Lord Chamberlain’s office I would speak to Mr Mach, who no doubt would be able to place me where I might be able to assist if that should be required by His Majesty. This He seemed to approve of, and spoke to Mr Mach, desiring he would place me properly, (tho I believe the king’s motive was principally that I should see the Ceremony). Upon my mentioning the affair at the Lord Chamberlain’s office, whence a good deal of hurry prevailed, and when the arguments were not very well made out, I found there was no disposition to take up the affair in the way the king had intended, they said the office of Master of the Jewel office and all its establishment had been abolished, or had merged into the Lord Chamberlain’s department, said it did not appear to be their opinion that the King’s Jeweller had any official character to fill at the Coronation. His mission seemed to communication with the completion of delivery and the regalia, they [?] in knew nothing about costume. I ought certainly to be in waiting, and then they left me to find my own way with my ticket. This suited my inclination perfectly, as I had no ambition to appear conspicuously then, tho I might have been said to have received the king’s commands to do so, and thus situated I was in some degree compelled to adopt a line of conduct very different from His Majesty’s intentions and wishes. I accordingly went in colord cloathes. I left Ludgate Hill at about 3 o’clock, in a coach hired for the purpose in company with Mr E.W. Rundell and J.G. Bridge, and got at a very early hour into the Abbey, where I assisted Mr Mach and the gentlemen of ye Lord Chamberlain’s department in arranging the Plate of different articles of the regalia for the Coronation table, soon after this was finished a considerable intrigue interest was excited within from its being reported that the Queen was endeavouring to get admittance into the abbey, and had made an effort at several points, it was soon understood however, without success, and the alarm quickly subsided when Her Majesty returned home. I then went into the Hall, and was there when the king came in, the applause expressed at his first appearance set all right, and His Majesty both then, at the abbey, and afterwards at the Banquet went through the fatigue of the tedious [? and ?] ceremony with an increase of spirits to the last. My ticket procured me egress & regress to & from all parts of the abbey and hall. I witnessed His Majesty’s first entry, the whole of the reception under the canopy. The ceremony of the Coronation in the abbey, the noblemen during homage, who all kissed the king’s cheek kneeling and touched his crown severally, and afterwards saw him sitting under the canopy of slate at the banquet in the hall with the diamond crown which we had made, upon his head. The ceremony of the champion giving his challenge &c and from being personally known to all the gentlemen of the household had the opportunity of participating in all that was going fore and at the tables. When His Majesty left the hall I thought it a good time to get away knowing I could not be afterwards wanted and being quite exhausted with the early riseing and the fatigues of the day, I got out by way of Cotham Gardens & came to Blackfriars Bridge by water, I think between 9 & 10 o’clock, where I found our Illumination & Transparency painted by Mr Howard RA, for the occasion, all in full splendor, & which in fact was the best in all respects that was exhibited, John Bridge’. John Bridge (1755-1834), jeweller, was apprenticed to the jeweller William Rogers of Bath. In 1787, Philip Rundell invited Bridge to join him in a partnership, becoming the firm of Rundell & Bridge. Known by their employees as ‘Oil’ (Bridge) and ‘Vinegar’, they worked tirelessly to become world leaders. The firm was appointed as one of the goldsmiths and jewellers to the King in 1797, holding the Royal Warrant until 1843. The Royal Goldsmiths served four monarchs: George III, George IV, William IV and Victoria. An extraordinary and previously unknown first-hand account of King George IV’s coronation and his thoughtful and modest gift to his jeweller John Bridge. The account confirms the historically held position that Queen Caroline, who had definitely not been invited, and did not have a ticket, tried to gate-crash the event. (1)

300* Monroe (James, 1758-1831). Autograph letter signed, ‘Jas Monroe’, Washington , 16 July 1814, to his nephew James, reporting that James’ mother and father are in good health, acknowledging his letter and that he is now in good health himself, ‘and engaged in close study, and would soon begin algebra. I had before receiv’d a letter from Major Partridge, from Vermont, in answer to one I had written him, requesting him to be so good as to see, that you were supplied with blankets and other necessaries, suited to the season & also with books. He wrote me that he should attend to my request. I was apprehensive that you might suffer for the want of such articles, and being so far from your friends, no one would assist you. Your letter remov’d all doubt on that subject. The greatest expence is in beginning, for afterwards, you will have articles to purchase. I wish you to be comfortable, and to make as decent an appearance as the other young men, but hope you will be prudent, and incur no expence you can avoid. The best thing that can be said of a young man is, that he is at his studies. When thus engaged, plain cloaths are the fittest. It is only on particular occasions, that he ought to wear his best. Put them away carefully after wearing them. If you leave them out of your trunk they get abused & dirty. Cleanliness is a great virtue. So is frugality. The young man, ought to do every thing in his room, that he can. If a servant is allowed, he may make up the bed & sweep the room, clean your boots, & even brush your cloaths. But you ought to take care of them, & might brush them. When I was at college, I did almost every thing for myself, and I have found the use of it thro’ life…’, continuing in the same vein to give friendly avuncular advice, minor browning to lower margin and a few minor splits on folds, 3 pages, 4to, together with a somewhat worn preprinted certificate completed in manuscript, appointing Hon. James Monroe as a member of the Fifth Ward Tippecanoe Club, New York, 10 June 1840, engraved vignette, signed by the president, two vice-presidents and two secretaries, split on folds with one small tear with loss, with engraved vignettes to folded verso and autograph letter to Monroe from a club secretary hoping that he will receive a certificate ‘as a humble testimonial of our esteem for you, and is a tribute to your worth as a public officer’, folio (45 x 27 cm) The letter is quoted in part in Angus Davidson, ‘Miss Douglas of New York, A Biography’ (New York, 1953), pp. 38-39. James Monroe (1799-1870) was the promising young son of Monroe’s unsuccessful elder brother Andrew. The young James ‘had run wild on his father’s ill-managed, decaying plantation in Virginia and had little schooling; then his uncle (who at that time combined the offices of secretary of state and secretary of war) sent him, at his own desire, to the West Point Military Academy and, determined, in spite of the boy’s earlier disadvantages to turn him into a useful citizen, wrote him letters giving him much good advice, both moral and practical. He felt evidently, that the boy required stern discipline, and thought it necessary to conceal his real affection for him beneath a tone of austerity, almost of harshness. His bark, however, was worse than his bite. That real affection existed, real interest in the boy’s welfare and true kindliness of heart towards him, is shown by the great amount of time and trouble and the meticulous thought which the distinguished statesman, busy with more important affairs devoted to his young nephew’s career’ (ibid. p. 38). Provenance: The Monroe and Douglas family letters (lots 300-303) all by direct family descent. (2)

301* Monroe (James, 1758-1831). Autograph letter signed ‘James Monroe’, Washington, 2 November 1821, writing while fifth President of the United States, to [Colonel Monroe], ‘If the lady, with whom you have a particular relation in N York, has not return’d there, had you not better, avail yourself of the opportunity to go to Virg[ini]a, to see your father and his family? There are many reasons why you should take that step, which merit your attention. First it will be gratifying to your parents, to whom you may give useful advice as to their own concerns. Secondly, it will enable you to confer freely with your brother, and to give him advice also which may be useful to him. I understood from your father, than one reason assigned to your brother, for doing nothing for himself, and making no exertion, was a suggestion from you, that he had better remain as he was, till you saw him. I suspect that you merely meant, that when you saw, you would give him your advice, but did not mean, to prevent his exertions in the mean time. Another reason, occurs, in favor of this visit, which is that by withdrawing from N York, till the Lady returns there, and for some time afterwards, on a visit here and to your father, it’ll be shown, that you do not rest your future prospects and hopes entirely on her, or her family. I think, the step would raise you in her estimation, and that the family as well as of others. It might be advisable for you to leave no message to her, and even to leave her to doubt, whether you had not been justly wounded at her going into Canada, after promising not to go. That however should be left to inference only, and not the subject of a message, nor would I say so, to any one, to report it to her. Hortensia [grandchild] is still dangerously ill. Your accnt. accompanied by Mr Hay, left this yesterday, for general [?] to afford such consolation as circumstances may require, and she be equal to. Col. Jane has returned in a very low state, just recovered, so far, from a long and distressing fever’, light uniform toning, two pages, 4to This letter is partly quoted in ‘Miss Douglas of New York’ (ibid.p. 35. ‘...Betsy Mary, for all her charming, gentle appearance, was a straightforward character and knew what she wanted; moreover she and James Monroe were in love. Her mother disapproved - even though he was the nephew, almost the adopted son, of the President - on the grounds that he was in the Army and therefore unable to be “stationary”, that he had no money at all except his Army pay, and that he was too young... Mrs Douglas did all she could to discourage the match; she succeeded in removing her daughter, against her will and against her given promise, to Canada again for the summer, and lingered there into November - a manoeuvre which prompted President Monroe to send his nephew some diplomatic advice [in this letter]’.

With your sons & daughters who were here, we were much pleased, seeing that they had been well educated, and of your character & merit, we had form’d the most favorable opinion, as well from what we heard from others. As the proof afforded, by the education of your children, & the care which you had taken on their property, since the death of their father. As James was young and inexperienced, & had little more than his profession, indeed I may say that alone, I saw no objection, to any settlement, which might be made of his wife’s property, calculated to secure it to them & their children, which should not degrade them both…’, continuing in the same vein and at length across five close-written pages with integral blank, centrefold splits without loss, browning discoloration from old tape repair to inner margin centrefold of first bifolium affecting all four pages but without loss of legibility, 4to See ‘Miss Douglas of New York’, ibid., pp. 40-43.

311* Ruskin (John, 1819-1900). Two autograph letters signed, ‘J. Ruskin’, Winn[ingto]n, 12 October [1864], to his mother Margaret, I was pleasantly surprised by the packet this morning - with your pretty little notes on the two ends. It was a pleasant packet too, for it contained the first nice message from Rosie that I’ve had for ever so long I wrote to Mrs L [La Touche] that I wanted her to make some purses and bags for my money for me, and she apologizes for this one’s not being pretty by telling me it is of Oriental stuff which Rosie says represents in its pattern, “a heart’s-ease in the middle of a rose and it must be sent to St C” [St Crumpet, Rose La Touche’s pet name for Ruskin]. Lily is very lovely sight just now - she is so exactly what a girl ought to be - not a bit of showiness or display in her dress or ways - nor even any of the unavoidable and perpetual conspicuousness which there is in the faces of some pretty girls, whether they like or not. Lily always gives one the idea, I don’t know how, of having just come out of a nursery where she has been taking care of her younger brothers and sisters - and has a curious little careful look and way, with all her fun, which reminds one of what one usually sees in poor children - She has been growing fast taller, but her face remains small so that the proportion is far more beautiful than it was - and she has a little quiet dainty frock, striped dark blue and white with a little bossy dark blue knot like <a holly hock> the tiniest bud of hollyhock, here and there about it - and it altogether is something unspeakable. I am so very sorry for my bad writing - but you wouldn’t like me to write carefully - so here it is as it comes’, 4 pp. on black-edged mourning paper, the second letter dated Sunday [16 October 1864] with reference one more to Lily ‘who is a great joy to me. I was not wrong about the little blue-striped frock - it has been made in Paris for her, & sent over: but it isn’t showy in the least; only just right... ‘, 2 pp. on black-edged mourning paper, plus a third incomplete letter to his mother, being the final leaf, signed J. Ruskin, probably Dublin, 18 May 1868, written a day or two before his visit to Dr Evory Kennedy at Belgarde, with reference to the Kennedys and the Lawrences, also Serjeant Armstrong and Lily, ‘Lily, my Lily of the Ethics of the dust, is therefore lady of the house, for her mother leaves nearly everything to her - she is not quite 18 - perfectly simple, gentle and resolute - the nurse and firm governess of the younger children - and the most beautiful creature in face and form I ever saw anywhere - but she has none of Rosie’s genius, or wild spiritual nature - For a perfect woman, I never saw Lily’s like: with her darkeyed delicate head and white shoulders and long white satin dress, at a full dress party on Saturday she was like a princess of the Arabian nights - and was up at half past five next morning to get me my coffee and taken me a five-mile walk before breakfast with one of her younger sisters but without the slightest change from the child-simplicity of her school days.

She was as tall then as she is now. She ought to look sad - and very sad - and that for many a day to come - For all days to come, in this world... ‘, the final letter beginning ‘I was greatly pleased by your last note, saying you were still so cheerful - and up to theatricals and what not. I was fancying you might be beginning to feel a little in need of a week or two with your old birdie; but it is rather well you are otherwise engaged just now - for I am able for very little excitement, and I find the sudden heat of summer that has come on us, makes me very languid, and I think it would make me too sad, and ashamed of myself besides, not to be able to get about with you and Violet - so you must not come till I feel stronger... ‘, a total of 19 pages, the first two letters with blank areas of one leaf trimmed away, scattered minor spotting and splits on folds, 8vo All published in ‘The Winnington Letters’, letter numbers 385, 440, 500, 529, 530 & 538-541. £2000-3000 (9)

Please write me a word - to Venice’, saying he will be home by the beginning of September and continuing, ‘Don’t alarm yourself whatever the doctors say - Half of them know nothing - the rest are often mistaken. But do as they bid you - and think if there is anything that can help you in the power of your loving Birdie’, 1 page with integral blank, a little spotted and slightly worn on folds, the third letter on Brantwood letterhead, circa 1889, ‘When is this suffering to end - I am so ashamed of myself for never having known what pain is, for long. Toothache only & I’ve got into despair with that. I am quite cowardly and base about pain, beyond a certain point. The only good in me is that up to that point, I would always infinitely rather have it myself, than that anybody I love should have it. The great good, eventually, I can see in it, for you, that we all who love you, understand you so much better - after pitying you so helplessly we will try (though that is not very possible), to love you more than ever...

This album was presented to Sir Theodore Martin, the official biographer of the Prince Consort in 1869. Martin’s biography ‘Queen Victoria as I Knew Her’ (1901) recounts the receipt of this album along with the now lost letter that originally accompanied it: ‘Of Her Majesty’s executive power as an artist I cannot speak, as what I know of her work is confined to a few slight sketches, and the etchings which she made, when Prince Albert and herself were for a time fascinated by that attractive but difficult process. Of these I owe to the Queen’s kindness a complete series. They came with the following note:“Osborne, May 3, 1869. The Queen sends Mr Martin to-day a volume of the beloved Prince’s and her own etchings, which she has had purposely bound for him, and which she hopes he will place in his library, as a trifling recollection of his kindness in carrying out so many of her wishes.”‘ Two other sets of these prints are known, one in the Royal Collection and one in the British Museum, the latter a presentation gift from King George V made in 1926. Queen Victoria and Prince Albert etched frequently for about four years, the Queen being the more prolific, producing sixty-two plates as against the Prince’s twenty-five. Both Sir George Hayter and Sir Edwin Landseer taught the royal couple. The plates were etched at Windsor Castle and it is believed some proof impressions were pulled from a small press there.

Etchings by Prince Albert:

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, Jasper Tomsett Judge, who specialised in Royal reportage, managed to acquire sixty unauthorised prints for £5 from a journeyman employee of Brown’s called Middleton, with which he planned to launch an exhibition in London. The press releases in the newspapers advertising the event reached the attention of the Queen and Prince Albert and an injunction was obtained.

In Theodore Martin’s book ‘Queen Victoria as I Knew Her’ (1901) he explains how Queen Victoria chose him to write the Life of the Prince Consort, the story beginning in 1862. Through the recommendation of his friend Sir Arthur Helps Queen Victoria asked him to undertake the biography in 1866. The project eventually began and Theodore Martin found himself having to expand on his intended two-volume work, ‘The Life of His Royal Highness the Prince Consort’ eventually being published in 5 volumes by Smith, Elder between 1875 and 1880. This volume was clearly presented as a Christmas gift in recognition of the Queen’s continuing approval and the publication of volume 3 then newly published. The Queen maintained her friendship with Sir Theodore and Lady Martin even visiting them at their home near Llangollen, North Wales, during her progress in Wales in 1889. £500-800 (1)

Martin & in recognition of his having given himself so much trouble about my book [his five-volume ‘Life of His Royal Highness the Prince Consort’, 187580], I gave him a bas-relief in oxydised silver of the “Taming of the Shrew” [sic], very prettily mounted... ‘. £500-800 (1)

In 1851 she married Theodore Martin, who was later knighted, making her Lady Martin. She continued to act occasionally for charity.

353* Gresford Colliery. An Edwardian silver presentation spade by Walker & Hall, Sheffield, 1905, the spade with foliate design and engraved presentation inscription, ‘Presented by the Directors of the United Westminster and Wrexham Collieries, Limited, to Sir Theodore Martin K.C.B., K.C.B.O., Chairman of the Company on the Occasion of the Cutting by him of the First Sod of their New Pits, 6th November 1907’, foliate and spiral ebony handle, minor scratches and marks, 89cm (35ins) length Gresford Colliery was a coal mine located a mile from the North Wales village of Gresford, near Wrexham, Wales. Industrialist Henry Dennis of Ruabon, and his son Henry Dyke Dennis, began a coal mine near Gresford in 1907. The Dennis’ company United Westminster & Wrexham Collieries took four years to sink two kilometre-deep shafts, the Dennis (Downcast) and the Martin (Upcast), located 50 yards apart. The mine was one of the deepest in Denbighshire coalfields, with the Dennis shaft reaching a depth of about 690 metres and the Martin shaft about 686 metres. Many years later Gresford Colliery was the site of one of Britain’s worst coal mining disasters. The Gresford Disaster occurred on Saturday 22 September 1934, where 266 men died in the underground explosion. It occurred in the Dennis district at around 2am, the time when the men would be having their mid-shift snack. As there was a football match on the Saturday afternoon between Wrexham and Tranmere Rovers, on Friday 21 September, many miners doubled up their shifts so they could attend the match. This meant there were more miners down the pit than there ordinarily would have been. Only 11 bodies were ever recovered, and the mine remained sealed off for 6 months after the explosion. Coal production restarted in January 1936 with Gresford officially closed in 1973 due to a combination of exhaustion of existing coal reserves and geological problems. Several In memoriam events have taken place in the intervening years, including various memorials on the 75th anniversary in 2009. (1) £700-1000

THE BAGSTER COLLECTION OF ROYAL CLOTHING All the clothes here (lots 354-373) have come by direct descent from the family of Samuel Bagster the elder (1772-1851) and, more particularly, his wife Eunice Bagster (1777-1877). Samuel Bagster was a publisher and author whose name became synonymous with Bagster bibles. He published numerous different editions of polyglot bibles with new notes and references. He presented bibles to King George IV, King William IV and Queen Victoria, who honoured him for his compilation of ‘Bagster’s Comprehensive Bible’. He died at his home at Old Windsor, Berkshire, on 28 March 1851, his wife Eunice (nee Birch) surviving him by some twenty-six years, dying on the eve of her 100th birthday. Queen Victoria certainly knew Eunice Bagster and the Royal Collection has a photograph of her, taken on her 99th birthday (23 August 1876) which was acquired by Queen Victoria. Family legend has it that Queen Victoria also visited Eunice Bagster the day before Eunice’s 100th birthday with some flowers, knelt by Eunice’s bedside and was blessed by her. Sadly, Eunice died that night, but family legend relates that the flowers left by Queen Victoria were used at the ensuing funeral. 355* Alice (of Hesse, Empress of Russia, 1843-1878).

By the late 1770s it was the foremost cricket club in England. The origin of the club, based near Hambledon in rural Hampshire, is unclear but it had certainly been founded by 1768. From the mid 1760s, Hambledon’s stature grew until by the late 1770s it was the foremost cricket club in England. In spite of its relative remoteness, it had developed into a private club of noblemen and country gentry, for whom one of cricket’s attractions was the opportunity it offered for betting. Although some of these occasionally played in matches, professional players were mainly employed. It was also the inspiration for the first significant cricket book: ‘The Cricketers of My Time’ by John Nyren, son of notable cricketer Richard Nyren. Hambledon’s great days ended in the 1780s with a shift in focus from the rural counties of Kent, Sussex and Hampshire to metropolitan London where Lord’s was established as the home of the new Marylebone Cricket Club in 1787. Membership declined during the 1790s and the last meeting of the club was held in 1796. Hambledon Cricket Club reverted to a village club and is now based at Ridge Meadow, close to the club’s original ground. (a large carton) £300-400

INFORMATION FOR BUYERS AFTER THE AUCTION Online Results: If you weren’t present or able to follow the auction live, you can find results for the sale on our website shortly after the sale has ended. Payment: The price you pay is the amount at which the auctioneer’s hammer falls (the hammer price), plus a buyer’s premium (a percentage of the final hammer price) and vat where applicable. You will be issued with an invoice made out to the name and address provided on your registration form. 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.

METHODS OF PAYMENT Cheque: Cheques will only be accepted on the day of the sale by prior arrangement (please contact our office for further information). Cheques by post will be accepted but a period of 5 working days will be required for the cheque to clear before purchases can be collected or posted. Cash: Payments can be made at the Cashier’s Office, either during or after the sale. Debit Card: There is no additional charge for purchases made with these cards. Debit cards drawn on an overseas bank, however, will be subject to a 2% surcharge. Credit Cards: Visa and Mastercard are accepted, a 2% surcharge will apply.

A charge will be added to your invoice for this service.

ARTIST'S RESALE RIGHT LAW ("DROIT DE SUITE") Lots marked with AR next to the lot number may be subject to Droit de Suite. Droit de Suite is payable on the hammer price of any artwork sold in the lifetime of the artist, or within 70 years of the artist's death. The buyer agrees to pay Dominic Winter Auctioneers Ltd. an amount equal to the resale royalty and we will pay such amount to the artist's collecting agent. Resale royalty applies where the Hammer price is 1,000 Euros or more and the amount cannot be more than 12,500 Euros per lot. The amount is calculated as follows: Royalty For the Portion of the Hammer Price (in Euros) 4.00% up to 50,000 3.00% between 50,000.01 and 200,000 1.00% between 200,000.01 and 350,000 0.50% between 350,000.01 and 500,000 Invoices will, as usual, be issued in Pounds Sterling. For the purposes of calculating the resale royalty the Pounds Sterling/Euro rate of exchange will be the European Central Bank reference rate on the day of the sale. Please refer to the DACS website www.dacs.org.uk for further details.

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. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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.

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. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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.
