Nissen Illustrierte Vogel Bucher 372. Wood, page 365. Zimmer page 261. Sauer 23. Fine uncut copy as issued in the original parts, with full plate margins, and vivid colouring. Described by Wood as “a magnificent work (in 25 parts) with life-like portraits of the birds inhabiting the British Isles”, Gould’s Birds of Great Britain is justly considered the outstanding landmark of 19th century British ornithology and natural history publishing. The work contains a much greater amount of descriptive text than in Gould’s previous publications, and for the first time includes extensive background detail in the images, including nests, eggs and offspring, ‘a thing hitherto almost entirely neglected by authors’ as Gould says in his preface. The author goes on to observe “Many of the public are quite unaware how the colouring of these large plates is accomplished; and not a few believe that they are produced by some mechanical process or by chromo-lithography. This, however, is not the case; every sky with its varied tints and every feather of each bird were coloured by hand; and when it is considered that nearly two hundred and eighty thousand illustrations in the present work have been so treated, it will most likely cause some astonishment to those who give the subject a thought”.

John Pascoe Fawkner (1792-1869) was born in Cripplegate, London and become an early pioneer settler, businessman and politician of Melbourne, Australia. Fawkner travelled to Australia in 1803 as an eleven year old, living with his convict father in a colony established near present day Sorrento. When the colony was abandoned in 1804 due to lack of wood and fresh water, the Fawkners moved to Hobart in Tasmania. Fawkner worked in his fathers bakery, timber business and brewery. In 1819 Fawkner moved to Launceston with transported convict Eliza Cobb. They later married in 1822, with a permit from Governor George Arthur. In Launceston they set up a hotel, bakery, timber business, bookshop, nursery, orchard and a newspaper The Launceston Advertiser in 1829. In 1835 he financed a party of free settlers from Van Diemen’s Land (now called Tasmania), to sail to the mainland in his ship, Enterprize. Fawkner’s party sailed to Port Phillip and up the Yarra River to found a settlement which became the city of Melbourne. Fawkner played a key role in the establishment of Melbourne and Victoria as a separate state. It would appear that this volume was purchased from and supplied by the booksellers Willis & Sotheran.

(1)

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 furore to which the letter refers is the media fallout following the broadcast of ‘A Vision of Britain’ by the BBC on 28 October 1988. The 75minute documentary was written and narrated by Prince Charles, giving full voice to his strong opinions about the state of modern architecture. At the RIBA 150th Anniversary dinner in 1984 Prince Charles had given a speech in which he unexpectedly badmouthed modern architecture and criticised modern projects, some of which were then abandoned following the outcry and support for his views. Prince Charles’ outspokenness on the subject has continued ever since, championing certain types of classical architecture and the environment. A revealing letter. (1) £300-400

387 The Parliamentary Roll. Original roll of arms from the papers of Sir John Fastolf, KG (1380-1459), possibly by his Secretary and Herald William Botoner (William of Worcester, circa 1415-circa 1482), circa 1475, comprising a total of 8 leaves of laid paper with a watermark showing a hand with a five-rayed star, with numerous pen and ink coats of arms in trick, some damp staining, soiling and repairs with loss, the pages numbered 193-208, all rehinged with a later flyleaf tipped in with inscription at head in an 18th-century hand ‘Quare [queer] if these heraldical sketches were not done by William Botoner, otherwise called de Worcester, for they were found amongst the famous Sr. John Fastolfs writings from Castre [Caister] in Norfolk’, and inscribed beneath in another hand ‘Wm Botoner, Herald to Sir John Falstaff’, later blanks supplied at rear, modern mottled calf with gilt title to upper cover and spine, joints slightly cracked, folio (295 x 195mm) Typed notes supplied by A.R. Wagner, Portcullis (Garter later) in 1937 suggest a possible earlier date of circa 1450, and suggests that it is perhaps a copy of an earlier roll. He identifies this as a version of the Great or Parliamentary Roll, dating to about 1312 (MS. Cotton, Caligula A.XVIII, ff.3-21b), edited by Sir Harris Nicolas as ‘A Roll of Arms of the Reign of Edward II’ (1829). Wagner further correlates the blazons on the leaves in the present copy as relating to folios 1-6 & 9-14 in the Nicolas edition. He notes that pages 197-198 & 203-204 in the present copy do not belong to this Roll, but are doubtless from some other early Roll. William of Worcester, sometimes called William Botoner was an English chronicler and antiquary, educated at Oxford, who became secretary to Sir John Fastolf. When Fastolf died in 1459 Worcester found that nothing had been bequeathed to him although he was one of the executors. He disputed the validity of the will and by amicable arrangement he obtained some lands near Norwich and Southwark. Sir John Fastolf has become lastingly famous as the possible prototype, in some part, of Shakespeare’s comic character Sir John Falstaff. However, the real Fastolf was a noted soldier, patron on literature and writer on strategy. The upper cover of the present work has the gilt title ‘Original Roll of Arms from the Papers of Sir John Falstaff (1415-1482)’; the date with a typed paper overslip suggesting ‘1378?-1459’. Provenance: Purchased by Major Anthony R. Tavener from Bernard Quaritch in 1976. (1)

Voet 588. Praz, page 259. The first scriptural emblem book, combining the illustrated bible form with the emblem book combination of text and image. The eminent theologian Benedictus Arias Montanus accompanied the Bishop of Segovia to the Council of Trent in 1562, and was later appointed by Philip II of Spain as editor of the new polyglot bible, published by Christopher Plantin in 8 volumes in 1572, and known as the Antwerp Polyglot. The collaboration with Plantin led to the present work, described by Landwehr as ‘The first emblem book of a Catholic tendency’. The author’s latin poems are printed opposite the fine etched illustrations, which are themselves based on designs by the author, according to the preface. Nothing has been discovered regarding the early inscription at the foot of the title. Two letters in French from the Bibliotheque Nationale, dated 17 and 19 February 1898, which are loosely contained at the front of the volume, suggest an interpretation of the monogrammed binding as possibly belonging to Mary Queen of Scots, although the author of the first letter, L. Delisle appears to misread the monogram as M F S R, missing what appears to be a clear D included within it. (1) £7000-10000

It is most unusual to find an English binding of this date with morocco doublures; it is also uncommon to find such a binding on a commonplace book. As well as a listing of the nobility, there are notes pertaining to fees due to peers, grants and privileges, the order of dignatories at festivals, lists of Knights of the Garter and foreign princes, and a description of two paintings of Henry VII (including one in the Privy Gallery at Whitehall). It seems probable from Howard Nixon’s research that Queens’ Binder A is William Nott. Nott was an important figure in the book trade, as a bookseller, stationer and publisher, as well as binder. Samuel Pepys called him “the famous bookbinder” and visited his workshop in 1668: “I did take occasion for curiosity to bespeak a book to be bound, only that I might have one of his binding”. (cf. Howard Nixon, Five Centruies of English Bookbinding, 1979) (1) £2000-3000

Lot 402 402 Queens’ Binder A. The Ladies Calling in Two Parts. By the Author of the Whole Duty of Man, &c. [Allestree, Richard], 3rd Impression, Oxford, 1675, engraved frontispiece, printer’s device to title, some minor staining and toning, armorial bookplate with the initials A.E. and rear free endpaper with small diamondshaped ink stamp to verso, all edges gilt, contemporary black morocco, by Queen’s Binder A, extremities lightly rubbed, lower joint with discreet repairs at head and foot, upper joint slightly cracked, spine with gilt decorated raised bands, compartments include central eight-petalled flower tool, covers with gilt border containing elaborate gilt design of drawerhandles, eight-petalled flowers, and dotted-line four-petalled flower tools, with other small tools, gilt roll on edges and turn-ins, 8vo in 4s A pencilled note, by A.E., attributes attributes the binding to Queen’s Binder. The four-petalled flower tool springing from a pair of leaves has the elongated top petal characteristic of Queen’s Binder A, and the all-over drawer handle design is typical of octavo volumes from this workshop. The binding is noticeably similar to binding 61 in Nixon’s English Restoration Bindings, attributed to Queen’s Binder A, which uses the same border roll on the covers and has only minor variations in the design. It seems probable from Howard Nixon’s research that Queen’s Binder A is William Nott, one of the leading craftsmen of the second half of the seventeenth century and described by Samuel Pepys as “the famous bookbinder”. Provenance: from the library of Howard M. Nixon. The bookplate indicates that previously the book was part of the Broxbourne Library, a renowned collection of books, manuscripts, and incunabula built by Albert Ehrman. This library became one of the most important private collections of books in this country, much of it now held by the British Library, the Bodleian Library and other national bodies. Ehrman was a diamond merchant, and the recognition of where his money came from can be seen in the numerous diamond shapes incorporated into his bookplate - which is itself diamondshaped.

An interesting association item. The William Wilberforce signature and inscription on the title-page could be that of William Wilberforce (17981879) the son of the great philanphropist and slavery abolitionist William Wilberforce MP (1759-1833); or William Wilberforce MA (1821-1900), the eldest son of William junior. The handwriting and marginalia suggest a younger hand. At this time in 1830 William junior’s venture as a dairy farmer at St John’s Wood in London was failing. The first signature, that of Barbara Wilberforce (1799-1821) belongs to William senior’s second-born child; and the location is that of Rydal Mount, the English Lake District home of William and Mary Wordsworth. William Wilberforce senior had connections to the Lake District and the Wordsworth family and in 1818 the Wilberforce family descended on the Wordsworths’ home for a visit which lasted several months. It seems possible therefore that this book was given by Barbara to her young nephew William. The Bible Society was founded in 1779, but changed its name to Naval and Military Bible Society in 1804 when the British and Foreign Bible Society was founded by a group of people including William Wilberforce and Thomas Charles. The Naval and Military Bible Society changed its name again to The Naval, Military & Air Force Bible Society in 1961. (1) £200-300

Description from Louët brochure, “This cutting tool enables the user to make a clean cut through paper up to a maximum thickness of 45mm and 430mm length. With the clamps it can be attached to a table. The easyto-operate knife holder runs smoothly over a rail on ball bearings. The cutting blade is made of high grade HSS steel and can be moved down the paper by adjusting a knurled nut at the top while cutting. The guide rail is extremely stable and will not bend. It guides the blade perfectly straight and vertical through the paper. The result is a smooth cut without mark which can sometimes appear when cut by machine. The tip of the blade runs into a nylon strip in the worktable which ensures that the blade remains sharp. When the nylon strip becomes deeply notched, it can be easily removed, turned and installed again. Two springs support the guide rail and allows it to remain open while the paper is positioned onto the work table. Two large knurled nuts positioned below the work table can be tightened to clamp the paper securely in place while cutting. A graduated (metric) ruler is located on a right angle with the guide rail and acts as a stopper for the paper stack. A parallel guide is attached to the ruler and can be positioned as needed. The cutting blade runs precisely at the edge of the guide rail.” (1) £200-300

536 Stroganov (Sergei Grigorevich & Solntsev, Fedor Grigorevich). [Drevnosti Rossiskago Gosudarstva: Izdaniya po Vysochaishemu Poveleniyu, Moscow: Aleksander Semyon, 18491853, reissued in an English edition as:] Antiquities of the Russian Empire. Published by Imperial Command. Description of the Plates, Translated by W.S. Mirrielees & R. Harrison, 1855 (Reprinted 1892), 6 volumes bound in 4, 1849-53-92, chromolithographed title-page and printed English title in first volume, 6 chromolithographed volume titles, printed table of contents in English to each volume, 508 (mostly) chromolithographed plates with captions in Russian and French (numbered and complete: 112+101+147+37+72+39), volumes 4-6 bound as one, library stamps to lower margin of English printed title and volume titles of volumes 2-4 with manuscript library numbers to versos, ink numbers to lower margin of Russian title and further library numbers to verso, library stamps to lower margins of first contents page of volumes 1-4, some intermittent finger-soiling, heavy spotting to plate 29 of volume 5, printed library labels to front endpapers, contemporary half morocco, heavily rubbed and slight wear to extremities, library class numbers at foot of spines, volume 2 snagged at head of spine, final volume rebacked in morocco, folio (510 x 375mm) Colas 138; Fekula 6194. This elaborate description of a wide range of Russian artefacts was conceived by A.N. Olenin, President of the Academy of Arts, and undertaken with the patronage of Tsar Nicholas I. It was written by Stroganov and illustrated by Solntsev. It was published in a modest edition of 600 copies. The original edition included a seventh quarto volume of text in Russian and French, often missing. It would appear that this is a reissue, using all the plates from the original edition of 1849-1853, discarding the French chromolithographed title and Russian/French contents pages in favour of a printed English title-page and English contents pages. The English translations on the title-page would therefore refer to the contents pages here supplied, and the seventh Russian/French text volume not included. No other copies of this ‘reissue’ have been located, nor have any copies of Mirrielees and Harrison’s translations of 1855 been found. (6) £30000-50000

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. Bank Transfer: All transfers must state the relevant invoice number. If transferring from a foreign currency, the amount we receive must be the total due after the currency conversion and the deduction of any bank charges. 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. Collection/Postage/Delivery: If you attend the auction in person and are successful in your bid, you are free to collect your item once payment has been made. 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.

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.
