Kluger of the Orient Press Photo Co., Tel Aviv, folding colour map in pocket to rear pastedown (Palestine To-Day. An up-to-date map of the Holy Land, Prepared by D. Benvenisti & B. Lurye, Special Reprint for the Youth Department of the Zionist Organisation and the Immigration Department of the Jewish Agency, Published by Kiryat Sepher Ltd, Jerusalem, 1946), signed presentation inscription in Hebrew in black ink to front free endpaper verso, translating as ‘To Sir Simon Marks, in memory of his visit to the land [i.e. Israel]. With love and appreciation, [signed] Ritzka lo Peh. Nisan 4 [i.e. 4th May] 1946’, original vellum boards with leather spine and leather spine ties, split along joints at foot of spine, oblong folio (34 x 37cm) An extremely rare photographic record of Jewish development projects in Palestine. This album was produced as a piece of Zionist propaganda for the Anglo-American Committee of Inquiry. This was a committee of six British and six American representatives appointed in 1945 ‘to examine political, economic, and social conditions in Palestine as they bear upon the problem of Jewish immigration and settlement therein and the wellbeing of the peoples now living therein’. The committee travelled to, and heard testimony in, Poland, the Warsaw Ghetto, Cairo, Damascus, Beirut, Baghdad, Riyadh and Amman. This album was presented to members of the committee by the Jewish Agency for Palestine, and includes images of clearing of swamps, building of new villages and towns such as Tel Aviv and progress in settling the Negev desert. There are some 28 aerial photographs, including shots of Tel-Aviv and Jerusalem, which are probably the work of Zoltan Kluger (1896-1977). Born in Hungary, Kluger spent 19331958 as chief photographer at the Orient Press Photo Co agency in Tel Aviv, and was a pioneer of non-military aerial photography in Palestine. Believed to be one of only of about 12 copies, this is an exceptional association copy. The London office for the Jewish Agency for Palestine was set up by Dr Chaim Weizmann, with the help of the Marks & Spencer partners, Sir Simon Marks and Israel Sieff. Sir Simon Marks (1888-1964) was president of the Joint Palestine Appeal and honorary vice-president of the Zionist Federation, and following the establishment of Israel in 1948 he worked tirelessly to help the fledgling state overcome its many problems.

Six fine watercolours of butterflies,including four of South American Lepidoptera, one of British swallowtail butterflies, and one of Australian locusts, early 19th century, all painted attending single plant sprigs, together six fine watercolour and gouache paintings on card, heightened with gum arabic, sheet size 26.5 x 20cm (10.5 x 8ins) and slightly smaller, mounted on thick paper album leaves, within sepia ink ruled or printed border, five carefully (but erroneously) titled in ink above ‘Van Diemans Land Lepidoptera’ and one ‘British Lepidoptera’, the five of Lepidoptera with plant title below, all within ruled frame, mount size 35.5 x 26cm (14 x 10.25ins), contemporary black frames Provenance: Private Collection, Gloucestershire. Five of the items offered here are inscribed in manuscript with the name of the plant, the first four being Australian plants: 1) ‘Patersonia Glauca’ with two butterflies: Historis odius and one unidentified; 2) ‘Lechenaultia Formosa’ with four butterflies: Episcada mira, Adelpha alala, Charaxes Ameliae [Africa] and unidentified skipper or moth; 3) ‘Calostemma Purpureum’ with two large butterflies: Caligo sp. and one unidentified; 4) ‘Kennedia Coccinea’ with four butterflies: Diaethria phlogea, Prepone dexamenis, Heliconus sp. and Noctuidae; 5) ‘Ilex Aquifolium’ [common holly] with two Papilio Machaon [UK]; 6) Unidentified plant [Patersonia?] with two Australian locusts. However, a specialist consultant has identified four of the images as South American butterflies on Australian plants. The watercolour of locusts is correctly identified as an Australian insect on an Australian plant, and the sixth image as British swallowtails on an Australian holly branch. The incorrect matching of these largely South American butterflies with Tasmanian/Australian plants would suggest that these highly skilled, unsigned watercolours were drawn by a contemporary of Edward Donovan, possibly someone in his circle, rather than by Donovan himself.

BOTANICAL LITERATURE & HERBARIA The Library of Alan Roy Perry (1938-2014)

Alan Roy Perry, known as Roy, was born in Burton-on-Trent, Staffordshire, on 21 November 1938, and died in Cardiff, on 5 November 2014. From his childhood, Roy was an avid naturalist and lover of books. These interests, along with beekeeping, collecting prints, and gardening sustained him throughout his life. Roy had a vast and important private collection of books, including a collection of bryology volumes unmatched beyond that in a few institutional libraries, as well as a large collection of natural history and general reference books. He also made a small collection of fine prints. Roy went up to Oxford in 1960 to become Assistant Curator of Botany, under Professor EF Warburg at the herbarium of the Botany school. Following the early death of Warburg at the age of 58 in 1966, Roy matriculated (Keble College, University of Oxford) and started work on a BSc degree in botany under Dr Robert Lucas. Roy left Keble College in 1970, having published his thesis, Investigations in the Taxonomy of Certain Members of the Genus Scapania. Under the University’s re-designation policy, his BSc was changed to a Master of Science in 1980. In 1971, Roy took up a position in the Botany Department at the National Museum of Wales, in Cardiff, and later headed the Lower Plants section – mosses, lichens, liverworts and ferns. Remaining at the museum until early retirement in 1998, he added considerably to the sum of knowledge in that field and gained an international reputation – not least as a result of his many field trips to far-flung destinations, such as Alaska, Japan and the Gambia. Throughout his life, Roy was a mainstay of the British Bryological Society, serving in various functions including president and editor of the Bulletin of the British Bryological Society. However, his knowledge of the natural world extended far beyond bryology, with a scholarly understanding of fungi (he led many fungus forays in South Wales and beyond), moths and butterflies, birds, grasses and sedges, flowering plants, and plant ecology. Roy wrote a book called Welsh Wild Flowers in 1979 and co-authored the Flora of Oxfordshire in 1998. He contributed a number of academic papers, particularly relating to bryological taxonomy. A true bibliophile, Roy would have wanted good homes for the collection that meant so much to him.

Franklin's Polar Expedition see his Bot. Appendix 1st edition' or similar, the majority additionally inscribed in another hand with pencil numbers and Latin name identifications to the specimens, some with additional location details for where the specimens were collected (Point Lake, Slave Lake, Camp Lake, Barren Grounds & Woody District, Fort Enterprise, English River, Mississippi River, Grand Rapid, Saskatchewan, Whitefall - October 1819 - Pine Forests, Borrowicks Fall (Set 17, 18, 19)), the title-page title probably in the hand of Sir John Richardson (1787-1865), sheet sizes 23 x 15cm, together with a paper fragment with ink notes in the holograph of Sir John Richardson, 15.5 x 19cm John Richardson, a Scottish naval surgeon and naturalist travelled with John Franklin in search of the Northwest Passage on the Coppermine Expedition of 1819-1822. Richardson wrote the sections on geology, botany and ichthyology for the official account of the expedition. On this, the first of Franklin's Arctic expeditions, Franklin lost 11 of the 20 men in his party, most dying of starvation, but also at least one murder and suggestions of cannibalism. The survivors were forced to eat lichen and even attempted to eat their own leather boots, gaining Franklin the nickname of 'The man who ate his boots'. John Franklin published 'Narrative of a Journey to the Shores of the Polar Sea, in the Years 1819, 20, 21 and 22' with John Murray in 1823. In the same year John Richardson published 'Botanical Appendix to Captain Franklin's Narrative of a Journey to the Shores of the Polar Sea'. The pencil numbers and identification of specimens on these samples matches those as published in the Appendix, but the published account gives no specific details of locations. In the Preface Richardson writes: 'Professor [Christian Friedrich] Schwaeglichen, when in London, named the Musci, which renders that part of the list of high authority; and Professor Hooker, by undertaking the examination of the Lichenes and Fungi, has stamped a value upon a portion of the catalogue, upon which it was peculiarly desirable to have the opinion and authority of an eminent cryptogamic botanist'. Richardson returned with Franklin to Canada in 1825 but was not involved in the ill-fated third Arctic expedition of 1845. Richardson travelled with John Rae on an unsuccessful search for Franklin in 1848-49, describing it in 'An Arctic Searching Expedition' (1851). (71) ÂŁ3000-5000

A collection of fragments of 300 dried plant specimens mounted on 18 leaves of early 18th century paper, loosely contained within a blank folio volume entitled “Specimina Plantarium Vol. 1”, circa 1750, each mounted plant specimen with reference number in manuscript, initials F.M. at foot of each paper leaf (sheet size approximately 33.5 x 21cm), includes loosely inserted 8 page manuscript list “A Collection of Plants, F.M.” with corresponding numbered common names of each plant specimen included in the volume (list includes cultivated and wild plants), volume containing 143 leaves of blank laid paper, worm trail to initial few leaves at foot, front pastedown with signature of botanist Richard Warner 1750 (crossed through) and armorial bookplate of Richard Warner of Woodford Row, Essex, contemporary reversed calf, joints slpit and some wear, some ties broken, large folio (volume leaf size 49 x 30cm) Richard Warner (1713?-1775) was a noted botanist and classical & Shakespearean scholar. He was born in London, the third son of John Warner, goldsmith and banker. He entered Wadham College, Oxford in 1730 and graduated in 1734. For some time he kept chambers at Lincoln’s Inn, but resided for the main at his family home at Woodford Green, Essex, where he kept a botanical garden and successfully cultivated rare and exotic plants. In 1748 Warner received a visit from Pehr Kalm, the pupil of Linnæus who was travelling to North America. Warner soon after received from the Cape of Good Hope a Cape jasmine plant specimen which flowered for the first time in his stove. The suggestion was put forward that the plant should be named Warneria, but Warner objected to this and the name Gardenia was decided upon instead. In 1771 his best known work, ‘Plantæ Woodfordienses: Catalogue of Plants growing spontaneously about Woodford’ was published. In addition to Warner’s botanical studies he was also an important Shakespearean scholar, who owned all four 17th century folio editions of Shakespeare’s works. Warner died unmarried on 11 April 1775 and bequeathed the bulk of his property to Jervoise Clark, the widower of his niece Kitty, only child of his brother Robert. Warner had been a director of the East India Company and left one hundred pounds to their hospital at Poplar. He also left fifty pounds to David Garrick. His botanical and natural history books and drawing collection was bequeathed to Wadham College, and three hundred pounds to found a botanical exhibition at the college. Warner’s book collection at Wadham included several notable botanical works, interleaved copies of Shakespeare and some small collections of dried plants etc. “An Account of the Herbarium of the University of Oxford”, published by the Clarendon Press in 1897 refers to the collection of Richard Warner. Of particular note is the reference made to “Specimina Plantarum, two large folio volumes bound in rough leather. Vol I, labelled ‘R. Warner, 1750’, contains 300 small specimens of British plants without names or localities; vol. ii is empty”. It would appear that the volume offered in this lot is the first volume referred to in this listing. (1) £500-800

272 England & Wales. Greenough (George Bellas), A Geological Map of England & Wales by G. B. Greenough Esq.

Greenough was stung enough by the critisicm to issue a written defense of his actions which was published in ‘Memoir of a Geological Map of England: to Which are Added, an Alphabetical Index to the Hills, and a List of the Hills Arranged According to Counties (1820)’.William Smith’s low social staus and background resulted in his work being largely ignored and the Geological Society of London did indeed plagiarise the map, undercutting Smith’s asking price, which eventually pushed Smith to financial ruin and the debtor’s prison. Recognition of his role as ‘The Father of English Geology’ would only follow much later in 1831 when Smith was awarded the Woolaston medal by the Geological Society. Greenough’s map is important in its own right and is now recognised as a separate piece of scholarship but unlike Smith it involved no surveying but relied on other surveyors sending him information which he then collated.

The first general maps of France using a measuring apparatus were made by the Cassini family during the 18th century on a scale of 1:86,400 (one centimetre on the chart corresponds to approximately 864 meters on the ground). These maps were, for their time, a technical innovation. They were the first maps based on geodetic triangulation, and took more than fifty years to complete. Four generations of the Cassini family were involved in their production. These maps, known as “Cassini Maps” or “maps of the Academy,” are still referenced by geographers, historians and genealogists. In 1808, Napoleon I decided to produce a map intended to be more accurate than that of Cassini. However, Napoleon demanded that the primary goal of the work was to produce battlefield maps. The triangulation for this new map began also from the Paris meridian arc or French meridian line (French: Méridienne de France) surveyed this time by Delambre and Méchain. Work on this map took place between 1817 and 1866. During this period several different scales were tested, with the scale 1:80,000 being chosen. This became known as the “Geological Survey” map. The funding for this work was provided by the Department of War. The first work was done by the Dépôt de la guerre (as referenced on the index map) and later by the Geographical Service of the Army, whose first director General François Perrier and his successor General Bassot remeasured the French meridian arc. The variety of paper used on this example is noticeable and indicative of a map produced over a long period of time. (125) £500-800

An Augustinian monk, Giacomo Filippo Foresti da Bergamo (1434-1520) draws here from Boccaccio’s own ‘De claris mulieribus’, but develops a different approach, choosing lesser-known female figures to ‘rediscover’ them for posterity. The women portrayed include numerous saints and historical figures such as Joan of Arc, Margaret Queen of England and Mary Queen of Scots. The final seven portraits were contemporaries of the author and are of recognisable likenesses. Unlike other woodcuts in the book, those used for them were not repeated. Five of the seven have been identified as Bianca Maria Sforza, Catherina Countess of Forli and Imola, Leonora of Aragon, wife of Ercole d’Este, Danisella Trivulzia, and Cassandra Fidelis. The artist of these fine woodcuts has not been identified, but several engravers probably contributed to the illustrations. (1) £7000-10000

EARLY PALMISTRY This private collection of palmistry, or chiromancy, was assembled in the 1980s and 1990s. A few rare tracts of chiromancy exist from the fifteenth century but it was in the sixteenth century that the subject’s reputation grew and solidified. Writers such as Cocles, Indagine and Tricasso, (all represented here), wrote more detailed and extensive works attempting to systematize the principals of chiromancy, and to make more explicit the supposed connection between the features of the palm and the ruling planets. Early works on chiromancy are now rare on the market, and this collection contains a number of these highlights, including early editions of Johannes ab Indagine in Latin, French and English, early Latin editions of works by Taisnier and Tricasso, plus seventeenth-century works by other significant contributors to the subject. Many of these works were to be found in the collection of Charles H. van Horne,whose collection was sold by Sotheby’s, New York, 10 December 1993, lot 652, and is now held by Princeton University Library. One significant work that escaped the van Horne collection, and offered here, was an album of photographs of palm prints used for Cheiro’s Language of the Hand, by Jehaugnier D. Cola. The album contains 93 palm prints, including those of Arthur Sullivan, Annie Besant, the Mahatma, Nellie Melba and many others. This album was acquired directly from van Horne by the current owner before the Sotheby’s auction took place. Other noteworthy items include books signed and inscribed by Cheiro (i.e. Count Louis Hamon), and Edward Heron-Allen’s original holograph manuscript and corrected proofs for his book A Manual of Cheirosophy… , 1885, bound with original drawings and approximately thirty autograph letter signed relating to the work. Also from Heron-Allen’s library with his bookplate is a bound collection of letters relating to Chiromancy, or the Science of Palmistry, co-authored with Henry Frith. References: Albert L.

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.

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) or Pack and Send (tel: 01635 887237) 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 20% of the hammer price. Where the lot is marked by an asterisk the premium will be subject to VAT at 20% 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 20% 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.
