THE DAVID A. SMITH LIBRARY OF BRITISH BEE BOOKS 1600-1950 David A. Smith (1938-2015) Author of the standard reference work British Bee Books 1500-1976, issued by the International Bee Research Association in 1979, David A. Smith QC was appointed Secretary of the International Bee Research Association in 1963, and held the post for over 50 years until his death in 2015. His interest in bees began at school, where he took over the maintenance of the school’s WBC beehives. Having attended Lancing College in Sussex, and then Merton College, Oxford, David commenced his law career in the Middle Temple, took silk in 1982, and became Crown Court Judge in Bristol in 1986. Before going up to Oxford, he met the Country Beekeeping Instructor for Hampshire, Captain Jack Tredwell, who taught him how to construct his recently invented long hive, (known as the Westley Hive), which David continued to use for the rest of his life. Over the years, David put together an important collection of antiquarian books on bees and beekeeping, which supported a number of his own publications in the field: amongst others a facsimile edition of Evelyn’s Elysium Britannicum in 1966, the British Bee Books bibliography (1979), and Bees and the Law, written in collaboration with David Frimston, published in 1993.

171 British Reformation Society. A Map shewing the situation of each Roman Catholic Chapel, College or Seminary, throughout England, Scotland, and Wales. According to published accounts and also the present stations of the Reformation Society. To Jany. 1833, engraved map with contemporary hand colouring, old folds, slight spotting and offsetting, inset map of the county of Lancashire, 580 x 370mm A scarce map; published by the British Reformation Society in 1833, only four years after Parliament had passed the Roman Catholic Relief Act 1829. The Act finally lifted the long-standing political and civil restrictions on Roman Catholics in England & Wales and Scotland (but notably not in Ireland). Most of the Protestant population were indifferent to the new freedoms, but the more radical Protestant elements - led by the Reformation Society - who were opposed to Catholic Emancipation, were vociferously vocal and sought for a time to reverse the reforms. They published this map as a form of propaganda to show the spread of Catholicism throughout the nation. The map includes the locations of Reformation Society Stations which were set up to supposedly place a check against Catholic activities. A somewhat sinister anti-Catholic map, demonstrating the religous intolerance which still abounded in the 19th century. (1) £100-150

A slightly smaller edition of Gill’s 1913 map which is assumed to have been published to help the promotion of the 1924 British Empire Exhibition that was held at Wembley between April and October of that year. If you look closely in the top left hand corner you can see a sign saying:- ‘On To Wembley’ and an art deco lion. Neither of which appear on the 1913 edition. The map would have been well known and much loved by Londoners and to re-use it to help advertise and promote the exhibition was probably a sound piece of advertising and publicity. The map remains highly stylised and whimsical, and 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 of the genre of decorative map making. (1) £500-800

Lot 240 240 World. Gill (Macdonald), La Carta del Atlantico, published George Philip & Son Ltd in collaboration with the Time and Tide Publishing Company Ltd, circa 1943, decorative colour lithographic map of the world on a Mercator projection with Spanish text, old folds, small tape repairs to verso to strengthen where the folds cross, slight creasing, 820 x 1100mm A scarce Spanish edition of Gill’s ‘Time and Tide’ map. Commissioned by Time and Tide magazine, it never enjoyed a large circulation and is therefore one of the scarcest of Gill’s pictorial maps. The map celebrates the joint declaration released by Churchill and Roosevelt in August 1941 after the Atlantic Conference. The Atlantic Charter was a gesture of solidarity at a moment when Nazi Germany had just turned against the USSR and looked all but invincible. In time the charter would form the basis for Allied war aims and the postwar foundation of the United Nations. Gill takes an optimistic view of the Charter and of the future. He shows a muscled worker taking a sledgehammer to tanks and munitions in the foreground, while in the distance is an idyllic scene of ploughing and reaping. A nod to the book of Isiah and the turning of ‘swords to ploughshares’. The map is adorned with quotes by Cicero, Emerson, Pope and Aristotle on the virtues of peace. Gill is probably best known for his 1913 ‘Wonderground map of London’ and this map is still very much in the decorative and pictorial style that Gill became famous for. I am grateful to the research and blogs conducted and written by Rod Barron and Bryars & Bryars. (1) £1000-1500

Dawson had been Physician Extraordinary to King Edward VII, the father of King George V, and this first appointment is dated on the first day of King George V’s reign and the day following King Edward VII’s death. Controversy surrounds Viscount Dawson who is accused of murder of King George V when he euthanised the King with a mixture of morphine and cocaine on 20 January 1936. In his diary Dawson wrote that he acted to prevent any strain on the family and so that the King’s death at 11:55pm could be announced in the morning edition of The Times newspaper rather than ‘less appropriate ... evening journals’. Later that year Dawson of Penn was one of the small British party led by David Lloyd George who met with Adolf Hitler for tea at his Berghof residence, Berchtesgaden in Bavaria on 5 September.

395 New Testament [Church Slavonic]. A magnificent Altar Gospel printed in Church Slavonic, Moscow, 7207 (December 1698), [2], 503pp on thick paper, sheet size 445 x 310mm, printed in red and black throughout within typographic woodcut borders and with marginal ornaments, each Gospel opening with a full-page woodcut portrait frontispiece of the Evangelist, and woodcut historiated head-piece, decorated initial and marginal ornament on facing page, gilt-gauffered edges with floral and geometrical design, later (engraved inscription to lower bevelled edge of lower cover dated 1904) brass and gilt ormulu covers over wooden boards, stippled ground and raised foliate design within an applied chased border, the lower cover with central cartouche depicting the Russian Orthodox Cross, decorated spine and spine caps, resting on four lobed feet, two Russian floral cloisonne enamel clasps, the upper cover retaining four original intricate silver niello plaques, the central oval cartouche depicting Christ within a laurel frieze, above which rests a crown and bearing the Moscow silver stamp, circa 1700, three Evangelists and their animal symbols at the corners, lacking the corner-piece for Luke at lower left corner, folio (51 x 36 x 11cm) Peter the Great (1672-1725) visited London for three months in the early part of 1698. While he had contact with the court of William III, he also studied English shipbuilding practice, arranged sailing lessons on the Thames and paid visits to the Woolwich Arsenal, the Royal Observatory and Royal Mint. It was also during this visit that the Russian Orthodox Church was established at the Russian Embassy in London, remaining there until 1917. The four silver niello plaques mounted on the front cover, and possibly the wooden boards, date back to the time of printing. The magnificent recasing in 1904 was made under the supervision of Father Mikhail Derzhavin, possibly for a newly consecrated Church. In recent times this Altar Gospel was present at a Moleben (prayers) service at the Russian Orthodox Church Abroad Cathedral of the Dormition of the Mother of God and the Holy Royal Martyrs in Chiswick, London, for the visiting relic of the Holy Cross from Jerusalem and the 400th anniversary of the founding of the House of Romanov. In attendance were the Grand Duchess Maria Vladimirovna Romanova and her son Grand Duke George Mikhailovich of Russia, the Tsarevitch and heir to the Russian throne. Later that year, in December 2013, this Altar Gospel featured in a Russian Orthodox Divine Liturgy held in Church Slavonic and English at the Orthodox Church, Bentham, Cheltenham, Gloucestershire. The printing date is taken from a translation of the first leaf, this copy possibly lacking a preceding title-page: ‘Printed on the press of the great ruling city of Moscow. By command of the most devout and great sovereign our Tsar and Grand Prince Peter Alexeyevich, autocrat of all the Great Russians, Little Russians [i.e. Ukrainians] and White Russians. … In the year 7207 ... [That is to say] … 1698, […] December.’ No other copy of this edition has been traced. (1) £20000-30000

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.

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.
