Provenance: Richard Palmer Jenkins (1826-1899), born Calcutta, became Commissioner of the Patna Bengal Civil Service (retired 1873) and later served as JP in Gloucestershire and Monmouthshire. He was the eldest son of Robert Castle Jenkins (1803-1892) and Anna Bassett Catherine Palmer (died 1885; daughter of John Palmer of Calcutta). He married Mary Campbell Allen in 1876. Along with his mother and father he is commemorated on one of the tablets in St John's Church, Beachley, near Chepstow. His father Robert served in the 61st Native Infantry in Bengal before becoming a merchant and retiring back to the family estate in Beachley, following and possibly because of the failure of his father-in-law’s business for which he worked.

An uncommon allegorical depiction of Europe, with the bias on Germany and Prussia. Undoubtedly published for amusement it concentrates on the national characteristics and the foibles of each nation, but there is also a more disturbing element of propoganda.

Great Britain is represented by a dreadnought whilst Ireland sails a dinghy in the battleship’s wake. An enraged German bull charges at the French cockerel and Marianne pokes at the bull with a short sword. At the same time the German bull is poked in its rump by an imperious Tsar Nicholas II of Russia. The representation of Austria-Hungary as a fallen crown and a series of graves is deeply prophetic, suggesting the impending end of that empire. Poland is a young girl pleading to Russia whilst Italy turns its back on the continent and plays a lute. Sweden and Norway are shown as beautiful young girls in an almost sapphic embrace. The map is a relatively gentle depiction of European national characteristics before the continent descended into chaos. Uncommon. (1) £200-300

The focus of the map is a panoptic view of Tokyo, from which a series of concentric circles radiate, thus creating a target-like effect. The circles ever widen till they include much of the eastern hemisphere.

210 London. Gill (MacDonald), Wonderground Map of London Town, published by The Westminster Press, circa 1928, colour photolithographic map, old folds, 745 x 930mm, retaining original colour printed envelope An almost pristine example of this decorative and entertaining pictorial map of London, complete with its original paper envelope. It is rare to find an example in this fine condition. This is the slightly smaller and later edition of Gill’s original 1913 map. There is a 1924 edition which is assumed to have been altered to help the promotion of the 1924 British Empire Exhibition that was held at Wembley between April and October of that year. It can be identified by a sign saying:- ‘On To Wembley’ and an empire lion in the top left hand corner below the man pushing a bus. This example is a slightly later state with a greyhound replacing the lion. Greyhound racing started at Wembley in 1927 so this edition probably dates from 1927 or 1928. The map remains highly stylised and whimsical and was held in great affection by Londoners. It was originally commissioned by The London Underground and was designed to be displayed in tube stations. The intense pictorial content of the map caught the public’s imagination and as a result Gill is often credited with creating a resurgence in the genre of decorative map making. Much work and research has been done by Roderick Barron and Bryars & Bryars on the maps of the Underground and the work of Macdonald Gill and I am also grateful to Claire Dobbins book, London Underground Maps: Art, Design and Cartography.

The Town before you or Welch Wigs or Whimsicallities or how to save the Tax on Hair Powder, 1795, etching with contemporary hand colouring possiby after George Moutard Woodward, 415 x 520mm, mounted, framed and glazed A large caricature showing twelve men and women, all with their heads conspicuously covered thereby avoiding the new tax on wig powder introduced by William Pitt the Younger. The taxes, which were many and varied, including the ‘new’ income tax, were introduced to help pay for the Napoleonic wars. Understandably they were very unpopular and an easy target for satirists and caricaturists. The bureaucracy involved in collecting the tax was cumbersome. Individuals who used hair powder were required to purchase a certificate from their local Justice of the Peace for which they were charged one guinea (hence the first title, ‘No Guines Pigs’). The list of those that had paid was lodged at the local Quarter Session court and a copy of the list affixed to the door of the parish church by the parish constable. It was common practice to fine those who did not pay this tax. Contrary to popular belief women did not wear wigs, but simply had the equivalent of todays hair extensions added to their existing hair. Women mainly powdered their hair grey, or blue-ish grey. It was never bright white like men. Wig powder itself was made from finely ground starch to which was added lavender, jasmine, roses and scented with orange flower and was occasionally colored violet, blue, pink or yellow, but was most often used as off-white. The act was eventually repealed in 1869 as by that time less than 1,000 people were wearing wigs. (1) £100-200

The author remembers local characters, scenes and events as his family grew ever larger. His 'father interested himself in several societies - the Chester Society of Natural Science, the Kingsley Memorial Society, the Ruskin Society, the Archaeological Society of Chester, and several others. He was most active in promoting the erection of the Grosvenor Museum in Chester, which was made possible by the generosity of the Duke of Westminster, who donated the building site, and started the fund with a cheque for £10,000'. He also remembers an original watercolour by Ruskin given to his father by the artist which hung above his mother's desk, as well as other pictures and letters of Ruskin and 'an immense brown and white decorative panel by Walter Crane'. Among the other works owned was an immense picture by Dame Clara Knight and one of a Pomeranian dog 'by an artist friend of father's - Arthur Boddington - a very strange man - and a confirmed agnostic. The picture was given to my mother by Boddington as a peace offering, after she and Arthur became involved in a heated argument over religion, (in which Boddington lost out), and mother ordered him to leave the house'. He remembers visits by Sir George Adam Smith, Walter Crane, Hugh Nisbet and Ira D. Sankey. He also describes a violent thrashing given him by his headmaster, and the ensuing showdown between his father and the headmaster and being pulled out of the school. Other family friends remembered include Dr Jaeger and Sir Isaac and Lady Pitman. The account ends with the death of his father who had been suffering from diabetes, 'and I often wonder if he would have lived longer, if he had engaged a physician other than Dr Haynes Thomas, who was a homeopathist'.

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 debit cards in the UK. All card payments drawn on an overseas bank, however, will be subject to a 2% surcharge. Credit Cards: We accept Visa and Mastercard, to which a 2% surcharge will apply. It is advisable to let your card provider know in advance if you are intending to purchase. This reduces the time needed to obtain authorisation when the payment is made.

When it is possible for our in-house packing department to send your purchase(s), a charge for postage/packing/insurance will be included in your invoice. Where it is not possible for our in-house packing department to send your item you will be required to make your own arrangements or to contact Mailboxes etc (tel: 01793 525009) who may be able to help. We provide a monthly delivery service to Central London, usually on Wednesday of the week following an auction. Payment must be received before this option can be requested. 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 and the Artists’ Collecting Society website www.artistscollectingsociety.org 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 theAuctioneer 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 lower estimate, 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.
