IMPORTANT ASSOCIATION COPY OF THE UNPUBLISHED REPORT ON THE EMIN PASHA RELIEF EXPEDITION. Sir George Mackenzie was a member of the Relief Committee and explains on the upper wrapper verso the reasons why the report was suppressed-mainly Stanley’s objections to some of the remarks contained in chapter VI. Mackenzie wrote the proposed four page typescript alteration, at Stanley’s suggestion, to be substituted for the present chapter VI, ‘The Chapters in Connection with the Rear Column’. Additionally, there is a three page autograph letter tipped-in at front from Henry Curtis (Lady Stanley’s second husband) dated August 1910, thanking Sir George for the loan of the work and hoping he will place the report in the library of the British Museum. 1910.

Sir Richard Arkwright (23rd December 1732 -3rd August 1792) was an inventor and entrepreneur during the early Industrial Revolution. He is credited with inventing the spinning frame, which, following the transition to water power, was renamed the water frame. He also patented a rotary carding engine that transformed raw cotton into cotton lap. Arkwright’s achievement was to combine power, machinery, semi-skilled labour and the new raw material (cotton) to create mass-produced yarn. His skills of organisation made him, more than anyone else, the creator of the modern factory system, especially in his mill at Cromford, Derbyshire.

Stead, asking him to have the Review of Reviews sent to Chatto & Windus’s London address ‘as soon as you get the world peace secured to your satisfaction’, and announcing an impending stay in London (‘for I’m a coming’), one page on ruled paper letterhead, short marginal fold splits, one page, 8vo Twain alludes in this letter to Stead’s influential coverage of the major international peace conference instigated by Tsar Nicolas II and held at The Hague from 8 July 1899. William T. Stead (1849-1912) had toured Europe in the autumn of 1898 to promote the Russian initiative and speak to politicians and diplomats, while earlier that year Mark Twain had composed a lengthy reply to Stead’s request for his views on the Tsar’s proposed plan for world disarmament: ‘... Peace by compulsion. That seems a better idea than the other. Peace by persuasion has a pleasant sound, but I think we should not be able to work it. We should have to tame the human race first, and history seems to show that cannot be done...’ (The Selected Letters of Mark Twain, edited C. Neider, 1982, pp. 254-5). In the present letter Twain could be referring to an issue of the Review of Reviews, (which Stead founded in 1890), in which his views on disarmament may have been published. Stead was due to speak on world peace at a conference in New York in April 1912 but was a passenger on the ill-fated maiden voyage of the Titanic.

Shewing, the Oddity of some, the Absurdity of others, the Drollery of many, and the Real or Intended Piety of all. Dedicated to the Ladies of Great-Britain and Ireland..., 1st edition, printed for I. Pottinger, 1760, typographical head and tail-pieces and initial letters, occasional light spotting and finger marks, first and final leaves with marginal staining from turn-ins, hinges split, old printed catalogue description mounted on front pastedown, contemporary sheep, worn, with joints cracked and slight loss at spine ends, large 12mo A curious volume which rarely comes onto the market; the last copy sold at auction was in 1976. The unknown author details the marriage customs and rites of Jews, Indians, Peruvians, Bramins, Caribbees, Mexicans, the savages of Darien and New Grenada, the inhabitants of Hudson’s-bay, Missisippi and Canada, and of Mahometans and Hottentots, amongst others, including the English. The various countries and cultures are dealt with fairly haphazardly in terms of chapter order, and the author, no doubt with a view to the book selling well, majors on the more sensational themes of his subject, such as incest, premarital relations, adultery and its various punishments, and polygamy. One of the curious ceremonies described is that of the Hottentot marriage: “the priest... enters the circle of men, and coming up to the bridegroom, pisses upon him a little. The bridegroom receives the stream with transport, rubbing it briskly all over his body, and making with his long nails, for the Hottentots never cut their’s) [sic] several deep scratches in his skin, that the urine may penetrate and soak the farther.” (1) £400-600

“Germany does not want war. Hitler does not want war. He is a most remarkable personality, one of the greatest I have ever met in the whole of my life, and I have met some very great men” David Lloyd George, September 1936

Hitler (Adolf, 1889-1945). Portrait by Heinrich Hoffmann, mid 1930s, vintage gelatin silver print, signed presentation inscription to lower blank margin from Hitler to David Lloyd George on the occasion of their meeting at Berchtesgaden, 4 September 1936, sheet size 27 x 22cm An historic and highly important photograph presented on the occasion of one of the most infamous Anglo-German meetings in modern history, where Hitler said of David Lloyd George (1863-1945), that he was pleased to have met “the man who won the War”. Lloyd George had been pro-German since 1923 and it was only by 1938 that his distaste for Neville Chamberlain led him to disavow the Prime Minister’s appeasement policies. Estimate £15,000-20,000

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.

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.
