30 Madagascar. Remarques sur l’Estat de L’Isle Dauphine au commencem[ent] de l’année 1668, contemporary manuscript account in French on the situation and prospects of the Island of Madagascar, written by an unnamed officer or similar figure in the second fleet sent to the island by the French Compagnie des Indes Orientales, 36 pages written in a neat italic hand on laid paper, with Jesuit watermark of a circle with the letters IHS surmounted by a cross, and another watermark of a shield enclosing 3 small double-ruled circles, with the letters LL above, sheet size 270 x 195mm (10.6 x 7.7 ins), bound in Middle Hill light brown plain boards (by Bretherton, with his printed ticket to front pastedown, dated 1850), slim folio Philipps Manuscript 3542. An early and highly important manuscript description of the state of the French Colony in Madagascar, which attempts to put the record straight in relation to the true prevailing conditions on the island, including the climate, coastal topography, water supply, availability of food and prevalance of tropical disease. The second fleet consisted of 10 ships which set sail from La Rochelle on March 14th 1666, under the command of the Marquis de Mondevergue, and included a total of 1589 people, including 421 officers and crew, 212 soldiers, and 956 merchants, settlers and craftsmen. After a long and hazardous voyage via Brazil and Table Bay, 9 of the 10 ships arrived in early March 1667. The manuscript describes the gradually worsening conditions for the colonists, bordering on starvation, and describes in detail the uncertainty regarding the arrival of ships of the fleet with provisions for the colonists at Fort Dauphin. The French King was to abandon the colony just two years later, by a decree of the 12th November 1670. The manuscript would appear to have been written around March 1668, as towards the end of the text, there is reference to the hoped-for return of the convoy that had been sent to Surat in October 1667, consisting of the Couronne, the Saint-Jean, and the Saint-Louis, which did not return to Fort Dauphin until June of 1668.

This important manuscript account of Madagascar was published in edited form in the Journal of the Royal Geographical Society for 1835, pages 230-242. The account provides detailed information on the Ovah people of Madagascar, the reign of King Radama, local customs, economy and language, and includes an alphabet of the Ovah language written by Lewis on board HMS Phaeton dated 3rd July 1817. Charles Telfair (1778-1833) was an Irish botanist, who established botanical gardens in Mauritius and Reunion, following his return to the Island in 1816, having previously visited the Island as a ship’s surgeon in the Royal Navy. He was also Vice President of the Literary and Scientific Society of Mauritius. (1) £400-600

31 Madagascar. Journal of a voyage to Madagascar by Lieutenant Samuel Pasfield Oliver, RA and Aide de Camp, 1862, manuscript account written in a clear and neat hand with occasional pen and ink sketches and diagrams, a total of approximately 300 pp., initially numbered pp. 1-228 and ending mid sentence, followed by 2 contents leaves and a separately paginated ‘Diary of our trip to Bourbon’, interleaved with blanks, additionally 7 pp. notes on Madagascar, 6 pp. botanical notes and 16 pp. description of the revolution in Madagascar loosely inserted, original gilt-titled album label for Oliver dated 1862 pasted to modern front endpaper with modern typed notes of provenance, contents partly detached, old cloth with typed paper label to spine, rubbed and slightly marked, 8vo According to the typed notes at front, this manuscript on Madagascar was first published in Oliver’s anonymous book ‘Madagascar and the Malagasy’ [1866], and the second edition was published in his book ‘On and Off Duty, Leaves from an Officer’s Note-book’, 1881; the text of this manuscript is closer to that printed in this second edition. Though it looks as though a section of some sixty pages has been torn and removed from the end of the Madagascar section, this may largely be a description of Mauritius rather than the journal itself. Samuel Pasfield Oliver (1838-1907), geographer and antiquary, received a commission in the Royal Artillery in 1859 and then went out to China and Japan. In 1861 he was transferred to Mauritius, and went thence to Madagascar where he spent some months exploring, witnessing the King’s coronation. An autograph letter signed from Major General M.C. Johnstone, under whom Oliver served on the mission, welcoming Oliver to the expedition is tipped in at the front of the volume. Oliver made a second brief visit to the island in June 1863 following the King’s ‘assassination’. (1) £500-800

An interesting and important document which begins: ‘My attention for some years has been turned towards the aborigines of the Southern Section of South America, more particularly to the Tribes on the borders of Chile, commonly known by the name of Aracecarcians. To collect information and prepare the way for the ultimate establishment of a Mission among them, under the superintendence of the Church Missionary Society, for the sole object of several journeys undertaken at different periods and at considerable intervals between the years 1838 and 1842. In the course of these journeys, commenced from Valparaiso, Coneipeion and Valdivia, communications with the Indians were opened and access was obtained to some of their frontier locations’. Gardiner continues to give an account of various journeys from Valparaiso etc.; opposition of friars and their influence on chiefs; embittered feeling of the Indians against all foreigners; approach from the south by way of Falkland Islands; suggests Gregory Bay and Oazy Harbour as first missionary stations; presence of families from Tierra del Fuego; language difficulties; antipathy of Fugians; inability for Church Missionary Society to raise funds, etc. Allen Francis Gardiner (1794-1851) was a British Royal Navy officer and missionary to Patagonia. After his brief naval career he began missionary work in Africa in 1834. His first visit to Tierra del Fuego took place in 1842. In 1844 a special society was formed for South America, which took the name of the Patagonian Missionary Society. Unable to establish a mission Gardiner returned to England in June 1845. On a later mission to Picton Island in 1850 Gardiner and his small team all gradually died of starvation. Gardiner published several works including ‘A Visit to the Indians on the Frontiers of Chili’, 1840; ‘A Voice from South America’, 1847. (1) £300-400

Original manuscript payment order by Sir Robert Walpole (1676-1745), British Prime Minister, Whitehall, March 7, 1723, manuscript in brown ink on cream laid paper, signed by Walpole, and additionally signed by Charles Turney and R. Edgcumbe, ordering the payment of 64 to Jonathan Forward of London, Merchant, ‘For the Allowance of Four Pounds per head for and upon Sixty six Malefactors who were lately lying in Newgate in the City of London under Sentence of Transportation. Which said Malefactors were received by order of the said Jonathan Forward on board the ship Anne Captain Thomas Wrangham Comr: to be transported to His Mats Plantacons in America, some marks and minor stains, some light creases where previously folded, laid down, sheet size 38 x 24cm, later framed, glazed The transportation of British convicts to the colonies in America and the West Indies first began in 1617, having been authorised by James I in 1615, but ceased to function by the end of the 17th century due to objections by the colonies themselves and the plantation owners. Consequently, an Act of Parliament was passed in 1718 ‘for the more effectual transportation of felons’, and the first contract between the Treasury and a London agent was established in the same year with Jonathan Forward, a London merchant (as named in the present document). The 66 convicts, of whom apparently 29 were women would have been transported to Carolina or Virginia. The ship Anne had been a slaver from 1717 to 1720, and conditions on board would have been miserable (See Walter Blumenthal, Brides from Bridewell, 1962, pages 19-25). The present document would originally have been accompanied by a certificate containing the lists of prisoners to be taken from Newgate. (1) £1000-1500

Abbey Travel 634; Sabin 73376. Account of Sir John Ross’s first Arctic expedition to search for the North-West Passage. The expedition confirmed the discovery of Baffin Bay (by William Baffin in 1616) and whilst sailing further west encountered what Ross thought were a landlocked range of mountains (named the ‘Croker Mountains’ after John Croker, First Secretary to the Admiralty). He then returned to England, despite the protestations of other officers, including William Parry, James Ross and Edward Sabine, who all thought a more thorough exploration of the ‘mountains’ was warranted. This led to a life-long dispute with Sir John Barrow, Second Secretary to the Admiralty over his account, who promptly despatched a second Arctic expedition in 1819, under the command of Parry.

Kinsey, a Christchurch NZ based solicitor, was a long term friend of Scott and on Scott’s advice had acted as attorney to Shackleton’s expedition of 1908. Scott appointed him his agent in New Zealand for the ill fated Terra Nova expedition in 1910, and Kinsey used his considerable business accumen to obtain the best possible commercial deals for the cashstrapped venture. When Scott and his party arrived at Christchurch, Kinsey housed both Scott and his wife and provided a string of social parties to raise funds, culminating in the ‘Terra Nova Garden Party’ when ‘anyone who was anyone’ was invited to meet Scott. The present volume bears Scott’s appreciation of Kinsey on page 5 under which Kinsey has written ‘This testimony is much appreciated by me. J J Kinsey, Christchurch, NZ 28/6/14’. The autograph letter loosely inserted inside the front cover mentions that Kinsey is sending two photographs he has taken for inclusion in the book (still present) - one of the original illuminated memorial signed by the London Committee of the British Antarctic Expedition when they presented him with the book in 1913, and the second of the last letter written by Scott to Kinsey in the last few days of his life. This is of particular interest in that it contains a derogatory reference to Sir Edward Evans, saying that he was a man who was not to be trusted - a reference which was expunged from the published version of the text.

A remarkable early cookery book, compiled by a Suffolk family. Much of the copperplate is probably that of Mrs. Crossman’s husband, who refers to her as “honeykin” or “wiffo”. We have been unable to establish the identity of Mall (presumably Maria) Crossman, but according to a marginal note she was “bloodily akin” to John Brundish, Rector of Whelnetham (1652-1724), whose recipe ‘To Roast a Shoulder of Mutton in Blood’ appears near the front of the volume. A note beneath the Rector’s recipe reads “I beg good Cos Crosse feed not me nor my Honeykin with such damn’d French dishes”. It follows a recipe ‘To make a Ragoon of Veal’, which ends “then dish it Garnish it & it will be a Dish to poyson the Devill”. The variety of recipes and their ingredients indicate a certain sophistication in late Stuart cooking. Claret, white wine, and cider was used, and there was clearly an abundance of fresh fruit and vegetables, as well as a wide variety of spices and herbs. Oranges and lemons were plentiful (one recipe calls for forty oranges), as were salmon and oysters, and of course all kinds of game. The Crossman’s kitchen was clearly not ill-equipped, with “tinn panns” for baking, tea cups for measuring, a chocolate mill for whisking ingredients, and presumably some kind of clock or hourglass, as cooking times are often given. Superstitions jostle amongst the practical details; a recipe ‘To make a very good Cake’ for a wedding advises “dispose of the Rest to ye young Ladys that are unmarried, to lay under their pillows, that they may dream of their bridegroom.” Even more nonsensical is ‘A precious Receit as good as how to make the countess of Kent’s Powder’ which calls for the flowers of salt petre, the juice of the powder of grind-stone and the yolks of several eggs to be “larded with the bacon that grew of the ear of a black she hog” before boiling the concoction in best saw dust “about twice as long as the old woman was kissing the further end of her Cowe”. On the same page is a marginal note “when you are in Gloucestershire drink mine & my Honykins health... & my little Boyes, who is in a close plott but not a dissenters plott”. Written in 1683, this certainly refers to William Russell’s execution in July that year for his part in the Rye House Plot, an attempt to murder Charles II as he travelled from Newmarket to London. “A receipt for any Infections of Plague or Spotted Feavour” is a reminder that the Great Plague of London, which began in 1665, was not solely confined to the capital. The epidemic spread to other towns and cities, including Norwich, Colchester and Ipswich, and its effects would have been fresh in the memories of Mall and her family. On the final page is a curious poem in rhyme on the subject of unrequited love entitled ‘Ah Cruel beauty now’, followed by the rather charming epilogue “Madame your Humble Servant most Entirely wishes more joys to you than In the Sea are fishes or In the Ayre are fowls; or on the Earth are flowers or drops of Rain in a Hundred Thousand Showers.” (1) £1500-2000

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).

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.

Note to Overseas Clients: All payments must be made by bank transfer only. No card payments will be accepted unless by special prior arrangements with the auctioneers.

Successful commission or live bids will be invoiced to you the day after the sale. 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.

Each lot is subject to a Buyer’s Premium of 19.5% (Lots marked * 23.4% inclusive of VAT @ 20%)

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.
