An unusual work detailing the care of tropical orchids imported into India. In addition to the fine plates, the book provides detailed information for English colonials on conservation, cultivation and pest control for these delicate plants imported to the subcontinent.

The work also demonstrates in the introduction the author’s concern regarding the continued maintenance and conservation of the plant population in the wild ‘It is greatly to be feared that in a very few years some of our most highly prized species will absolutely cease to be found growing wild … so terrible are the ravages often made by commercial collectors in the forests where such plants are found …so slow is their propagation that this gradual extinction is scarcely to be wondered at, when it is known that thousands of specimens are annually removed for export. This subject is rendered still more serious when it is beginning to be feared that there are men who traverse these forests in search of rarities, whose habit is to destroy all plants they cannot carry away, to prevent their falling into the hands of rival collectors.’ (Introduction p.1-2).

Provenance: Frederick Alkmund Roach OBE (1909-2004).

Henrey 226; STC 15329.

Frederick Roach was one of the most acclaimed fruit experts of the 20th century. He decided on a career in horticulture at the age of 10 while helping to run his father’s rectory garden in Toft, Lincolnshire. During the Second World War Roach was part of the Dig for Victory campaign and, in 1946, he was made chief horticultural officer of the newly formed National Agricultural Advisory Service. He became successively regional fruit adviser for the South West and South East before taking the post of national fruit adviser. Retirement from the ministry in 1972 triggered a new career as a consultant to the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation and the World Bank. Roach’s book, Cultivated Fruits of Britain, Their Origin and History (1985), is still regarded as a bible for many fruit experts. This was followed by the descriptive texts for Hooker’s Finest Fruits, which was published by the Royal Horticultural Society in 1989. In 1966 he was awarded the Ridley Medal of the Worshipful Company of Fruiterers. The Royal Horticultural Society awarded him the Veitch Memorial Medal in 1978. Other illustrious winners of the award include Gertrude Jekyll (1928), Francis Kingdon-Ward (1934), Vita Sackville-West (1955), Harold Hillier (1957), Roy Lancaster (1972), David Austin (1994) and Stefan Buczacki (2010).

Sander’s ‘Reichenbachia’ (named after celebrated orchidologist Heinreich Gustav Reichenbach) is one of the most celebrated and gloriously illustrated books on orchids ever produced. The care lavished on the project was enormous: Sander had twenty orchid collectors working simultaneously in Brazil, Columbia, Peru, Ecuador, Mexico, Madagascar, New Guinea, Burma and Malaya; and the blocks for the plates were hand-made from wood, with as many as twenty inks used in the production of the chromolithographs. The overall cost to Sander was said to have been well over £7,000, and he often remarked in later years that the project nearly ruined him. (4)

76 Belloguet (Andre). L’Europe Comique, Amuser Instruire, Cocasserie Dediée a la Jennesse, Paris, 1867, satirical lithographic map with contemporary hand-colouring, light overall toning, 450 x 640 mm, with another copy similar, but with repaired marginal tears and laid on later limp card

The map appears to lack any overt political message and although it is dominated by the large face that is Russia, the latter is not depicted as dangerous or acquisitive of neighbouring states.

“An outlandish riot of different physiognomies and expressive faces whose shapes roughly follow the established political boundaries of contemporary Europe. Most dominant amongst them is the giant figure of Russia, a cultured and erudite gentleman sporting a wide-brimmed hat and wearing a monocle. This may perhaps symbolise Russia’s growing cultural self-expression in the fields of literature, music and the arts. Whether Belloguet’s map had any deeper meanings beyond mere cocasserie (foolery) is not at all clear.

Martin, published Leeds, John Baines & Company, engraved map with bright contemporary outline colouring, sectionalised and laid on linen, calligraphic title, compass rose, table of explanation and a vignette of the West End of Kirkstall Abbey, slight spotting, the whole edged in green silk, 1140 x 1225 mm, contained in a contemporary blind-stamped calf book box with contrasting gilt morocco label to the spine, the box worn and frayed

This map was first published in 1822. This second edition now shows the delineation of the latest railway lines, including several proposed and uncompleted routes that were soon to accelerate the industrialisation of this part of South Yorkshire; bringing large amounts of wealth for the few but also poverty and deprivation for the many as the conurbations expanded to house the vast workforce needed to drive the industrial revolution.

123 London. Gill (MacDonald), Wonderground Map of London Town, published by The Westminster Press, circa 1928, colour photolithographic map, old folds, 745 x 930 mm, retaining the original colour printed envelope, the envelope is dust soiled and frayed with several marginal repaired closed tears

An almost pristine example of this decorative and entertaining pictorial map of London, complete with its original paper envelope. It is rare to find an example in this fine condition. 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, 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’s book, London Underground Maps: Art, Design and Cartography.

The Information given in red on this map is quite correct and is obtained from the studies of the Soudan Railway Survey of 1872 of which I was second in charge. W. Whitworth Sept. 10th 1884. There is a later state of this map (held by the National Library of Australia), with an addition to the title which states Revised from Sketches and Information furnished by Officers during the Campaign of 18841885. This would coincide with the siege of Khartoum and the death of General Gordon. Gordon arrived at Khartoum on 18 February 1884 and the siege took place between the 13 March 1884 and the 26 January 1885. The Mahdists hearing news of an approaching British relief column, storme d the garrison slaughtering the defenders to the last man, as well as 4,000 of the town’s male inhabitants. Many of the surviving women and children were enslaved by the victorious Mahdists. Advance elements of the relief expedition arrived within sight of Khartoum two days after it fell. After discovering that they were too late, the surviving British and Egyptian troops withdrew. It is therefore possible that these maps - designed for portability - were used by British officers in the relief column.

151 United States. Melish (John). Map of the United States with the contiguous British & Spanish Possessions Compiled from the latest & best Authorities by John Melish Engraved by J. Vallance & H. S. Tanner. Entered according to Act of Congress the 6th day of June 1816. Published by John Melish Philadelphia, folding engraved map sectionalised into 40 sheets and laid on linen, contemporary outline colouring, calligraphic title surmounted by the American Eagle, inset map of the West Indies and statistical table, slight dust soiling, occasional small holes to linen where folds cross, the whole edged in brown silk with some loss, marbled end sheets to verso, 890 x 1455 mm Martin/Ristow 24; Streeter VI:3798.

This is the first large scale detailed map made in the U.S. to show the whole of North America from the Atlantic to the Pacific. Martin & Ristow identify seven states of the first edition published in 1816. This appears to be the fourth state, with Mansfield, Wooster and Adelphi (and a trail from Adelphi to Athens and Chillicothe) added in Ohio, and ‘Vevay or’ added before ‘Swiss Vineyards’ in southeastern Indiana.

Melish published new editions in 1818 (five states), 1819 (two states), 1820 (eight states), 1822 (two states), and 1823 (one state), a total of 25 different issues. Notwithstanding all these printings, the map has become extremely rare to find in any issue. Melish produced no more than 100 examples of each state and partly due to its large size few have survived in good condition.

Following the Louisiana Purchase in 1803, the huge expanse of the country to the Western Seaboard and the Pacific Ocean became an exciting prospect for exploration and colonisation. The mapping from the Lewis and Clark Expedition of 1804-06 had offered tantalising glimpses of parts of this vast territory. Their explorations, together with those of US army officer and explorer Zebulon Pike provided early regional snapshots of previously unknown regions in the West. But it was Melish - along with Aaron Arrowsmith and his seminal map of Mexico (1810) - who gathered all the most up-to-date data from state and military maps to produce the first systematic and comprehensive map of the United States.

This exquisite map, with an inset of the West Indies, helped Melish to become renowned as the leading American map publisher of the second decade of the 19th century and placed American maps on equal footing with those produced by the esteemed firms in London and Paris. (1)

Rare. Records indicate that few examples of this work have appeared at auction. Silex scintillans, influenced by the works of his contemporaries Donne and Herbert, is Vaughan’s chief literary legacy and is widely regarded as being among the finest volumes of poetry of the era. ‘His finest lyrics challenge the best in their age; his achievements in rhythm have no peer until Hopkins’ (ODNB). ‘Vaughan’s finest poetry was published in this rare volume’ (Hayward). Wordsworth rediscovered Vaughan’s work at the end of the eighteenth century. The inclusion of ‘Silurist’ after the author’s name on the engraved title alludes to his home county of Brecknockshire, which had been the area inhabited by the ancient British tribe of the Silures.

345 Mozart (Wolfgang Amadeus). Duetto, con Recitativo nell’Don Giovanni, del Sigr. W: Mozart, circa 1790, contemporary scribal manuscript copy of the duet ‘Fuggi, crudele’ and its preceding recitative ‘Ma qual mai s’offre, o Dei’, scored for soprano, tenor and keyboard reduction, 18pp, brown ink on cream laid paper, watermarked Portal & Bridges with a separate fleur-de-lys watermark, bound without covers (stitching lost), slim oblong folio

“The watermark Portal & Bridges lacked the date found in most paper from this mill. Since the royal decree requiring watermark dates in English paper was issued in 1794, it seemed reasonable to consider undated Portal & Bridges paper as pre-1794” from Watermarks and Musicology, Jan La Rue, The Journal of Musicology, page 319, Vol. 18, No. 2 (Spring 2001), University of California Press.

This is an unusually early, contemporary manuscript copy possibly for home or rehearsal use. Given the paper manufacturer, this is evidently an early copy possibly made in London, only a few years after the opera was premiered.

The keyboard reduction in this version is very similar - but not identicalto Carl Zulehner’s keyboard reduction in the edition published by B. Schott in 1791.

“In 1923 a commemorative volume was devoted to Vakhtangov’s colourful production of Carlo Gozzi’s Princess Turandot for the Third Studio of the Moscow Arts Theatre. Unfortunately he died of illness without seeing this production, which he directed from his hospital bed. Costumes and decor were by Ignaty Nivinsky who was also responsible for the book, providing a cubist design for the cover, printed in pastel shades of yellow, blue, pink and green. The publication which includes colour plates as well as photographs, gives an idea of the look of the production...” (Compton). (3)

Alphonse Giroux, known as ‘the merchant of the princes’, was an important Parisian manufacturer of luxury furniture and objets d’art, whose products were intended for the upper echelons of society. He was operating from 7, Rue de Coq St. Honoré as early as 1799, before moving to Boulevard des Capucines in the middle of the 19th century, and he counted royalty among his clients, including King Louis XVIII and King Charles X. Specialising in paper and artistic supplies he sold a hugely diverse range of wares, including toys, boxes, souvenirs, lithographs, mirrors, clocks, sewing accessories, fabrics, and items of furniture. Giroux had studied painting under Jacques-Louis David, and he not only collected, exhibited and sold fine art, but he offered a conservation service also, becoming involved in such prestigious projects as the restoration of Notre Dame Cathedral.

These cards, designed by Benjamin W. Hitchcock, were produced during the American Civil War and clearly were intended for sale in the Union states. Willshire rather amusingly describes them as ‘of very vulgar character’. In 1863 the American Card Company produced another pack of these cards, but in that later pack the court cards have no background. (1) £500 - £800

The courts in this mysterious deck are virtually identical in both design and colour to those of the pack shown in Cartorama (see above), which is referenced as Hochman NY4. In Hochman’s Encyclopedia of American Playing Cards, (part IV, page 13) it states that the courts used for NY4 are identical to those used for NY2. However, our deck has an extremely unusual ace of spades, which we cannot find any reference to. Possibly this pack was made by Cohen for export? (1) £150 - £200

Provenance: Collection of Dudley Ollis.

A rare set of operatic playing cards in very good condition. The Bibliothèque Nationale de France list this set (ark:/12148/btv1b10509209x), but have only ten courts. The court cards are photographs of famous 19th century French opera singers. The portraits were taken by renowned French lithographer and photographer Adolphe Bilordeaux (1807-1872) who was one of the pioneers in the use of salt print technique on waxed paper. Gouache was added to the cards to highlight the suit symbols as colour photography was not then possible. Avril et Cie was only active in Paris between 1856 and 1868, after which it was declared bankrupt. The costume decks also produced by Avril have decorative aces identical to ours (for example Schreiber, French 67). Although Dudley Ollis notes that his ace of clubs is on different cardstock to the remainder of the pack he still listed this as a complete deck. However the ace of clubs is clearly from a different pack, despite having the same blue verso. The opera singers represented include Louis Gueymard, Pauline Lauters, Charles Louis Puberaux and Marie Cico. Avril also produced this pack with full-length portraits (see World of Playing Cards webpage: Parisian Actors and Opera Singers).

Henry Pussey was a successor to E. Testu and made playing cards in Paris between 1880-1890, when he then sold the manufacturing part of his business to B.P. Grimaud. Pussey is best known for his Sybille des Salons and double-ended standard packs. This aluette deck is very similar to that produced by Avril & Cie (Cary coll., FRA 172) who had during the 1860s also called themselves ‘Successor to Testu’.

The title label has the subtitle 1001 Danses pour Piano, and the English rules names them Magical Music Cards. This unusual deck of musical playing cards is cleverly designed so that, as the rules explains a Thousand and one Dances for Piano can be obtained. If any eight cards are laid out in order from king down to 7 (ace between knave and 10), disregarding the suits, a polka and a galop tune will be formed, with hundreds of combinations possible, each forming slightly different tunes. The Bibliothèque Nationale de France lists Bass as the publisher, but also mentions an Édouard Vert under ‘Impression’ - it is not known where this name comes from. (1)

The only other example of this finely engraved erotic pack we have found was sold at auction by Millon (5 Nov 2011, lot 75). In that case, each card had a caption in French and Spanish to the upper right. Our pack appears to be more finely engraved and so perhaps published earlier. (1)

According to the collector’s notes this pack is the only known example of a standard pattern deck by this maker, who is apparently known only by a few very incomplete tarot packs. Beaufore was active between 1738-1759. The mark Estranger on the jack of spades indicates that the deck was produced for exportpossibly to Germany as the patterned versos would suggest.

Pierre-Vincent and the merchant-cardmaker Jean-Baptiste Cosnard, known as Dumoutier, worked together between 1807 and 1824. His eldest son Pierre (also a cardmaker) joined them for a short time, between 18101814. Although the jack of clubs lists all three cardmakers, the wrapper does not mention the son, indicating that this pack was likely produced shortly after Pierre (fils) had joined the company in 1810 and they were still using up old wrappers.

Provenance: Collection of Dudley Ollis.

Orzack & Orzack: Political Playing-Cards: American Examples, in The Playing-Card, vol. XI, no. 2, Nov 1982, pp. 33-49.

These extremely rare cards were designed and issued by Antonio Martorell and published by his studio and community art centre Taller Alacran

According to Dudley Ollis’ note, Ollis was told by Louis Orzack that he (Orzack) had met Antonio Martorell and been presented with a pack of these cards. However shortly afterwards the police in Puerto Rico seized and destroyed all stocks of the cards. Orzack believed that the only packs still in existence were his own and a pack saved by the artist, which is now displayed in the Puerto Rico Museo de Arte de Ponce. Therefore this apparently escaped example, found by Dudley Ollis at a London antiques fair, would seem to be one of only three examples that have survived.

The cards support the movement for independence from the United States. The Spanish word alacran means scorpion, and refers to the United States and its hold over the island. The four suits represent: coconut palms with fruit = New Progressive Party, hand with flag = Independentista movement, white star on red = Communist Party, profile head = Popular Democratic Party. This profile head is believed to be that of Governor Muñoz-Marin. (1) £500 - £800

Penn, on The William Penn Collection of Playing Cards headed notepaper, dated March 1st [19]59

Provenance: Collection of Dudley Ollis.

Tilley, A History of Playing Cards, p. 171; Tilley, Playing Cards, p. 91: Worshipful Company of Makers of Playing Cards website, Curator’s Corner - Boer War Playing Cards.

The accompanying letter, written to a Mr. Green-Armytage, briefly discusses this rare pack of cards.

Of especial interest is the excerpt from another letter, written by Colonel The Hon. Sir Lucas Guest and dated 14 October 1966, which is given in Tilley’s book Playing Cards (see above). That letter describes how, due to shortages of playing cards caused by the war, H.M. Guest (the Colonel’s father) made these packs of cards himself, with a friend helping to carve the woodblocks. Intriguingly the pack illustrated on the Worshipful Company of Makers of Playing Cards website has the jacks printed in yellow, whereas the pack described by Tilley agrees with ours in having the all the courts in purple. Presumably Guest was having to make do with whatever stocks of colour printing inks he had available.

572AR* Shepard (Ernest Howard, 1879-1976), ‘Ratty and Mole’, [1959], fine pencil, ink and watercolour with body colour on off-white wove paper, signed lower left, 26.5 x 18.5 cm, framed and glazed with photocopies of Shepard’s manuscript labels to picture verso pasted to back of frame

Provenance: Acquired by the vendors’ parents directly from the artist at an exhibition of his own work in Haslemere, Surrey, 29 May – 12 June 1965. Framed and mounted for the exhibition the picture was priced at 15 guineas. Shepard’s line drawings were first used to illustrate a new Methuen edition of Wind in the Willows in 1931. In 1959 Methuen published a new Shepard edition with an additional eight colour plates from watercolours by the artist.

This watercolour of Ratty and Mole in a rowing boat by the reeds in the near foreground and Otter and his young son Portly on the far side of the river. The scene is described in Chapter 7, ‘The Piper at the Gates’, when Mole and Rat reunite the missing Portly with his father.

‘They watched the little animal as he waddled along the path contentedly and with importance; watched him till they saw his muzzle suddenly lift and his waddle break into a clumsy amble as he quickened his pace with shrill whines and wriggles of recognition. Looking up the river, they could see Otter start up, tense and rigid, from out of the shallows where he crouched in dumb patience, and could hear his amazed and joyous bark as he bounded up through the osiers on to the path. Then the Mole, with a strong pull on one oar, swung the boat round and let the full stream bear them down again whither it would, their quest now happily ended.’

The picture was also used as a full-bleed design for the upper panel of the dust jacket of the first edition in 1959, but later replaced with a design featuring all four of the book’s major characters and title lettering. The original watercolour of this latter design, which Shepard described as the cover design in his inventory for the Haslemere exhibition, was sold by Sotheby’s, London, 10 December 2019, lot 252. In the reed bed at the lower edge of the drawing Shepard has added a hand-painted roughly torn strip of paper that sits raised above the lower edge to give extra depth to the picture. This 'trompe l'oeil' paper strip is an integral part of Shepard’s original drawing and is clearly visible in the reproductions.

Provenance: Acquired by the vendors’ parents directly from the artist at an exhibition of his own work in Haslemere, Surrey, 29 May – 12 June 1965. This watercolour does not appear in Shepard’s manuscript inventory for the exhibition but was obtained directly from the artist at the same time.

Shepard’s line drawings were first used to illustrate a new Methuen edition of Wind in the Willows in 1931. In 1959 Methuen published a new Shepard edition with an additional eight colour plates from watercolours by the artist.

This watercolour features at the very end of the story in Chapter 12, ‘The Return of Ulysses’, and shows the moment Badger, with Ratty, Mole and Toad behind him, on the threshold and ready to burst in and attack the Weasels in Toad Hall.

‘The Badger drew himself up, took a firm grip of his stick with both paws, glanced round at his comrades, and cried:

“The hour is come! Follow me!”

And flung the door open wide.

My!

What a squealing and a squeaking and a screeching filled the air!

Well might the terrified weasels dive under the tables and spring madly up at the windows! Well might the ferrets rush wildly for the fireplace and get hopelessly jammed in the chimney! Well might tables and chairs be upset, and glass and china be sent crashing on the floor, in the panic of that terrible moment when the four Heroes strode wrathfully into the room!’

For the first edition see Linder, p. 427; Quinby 13.

In the rarely-found opaque glassine dustjacket, designed to protect the book during its journey from publisher to customer. Typically, as here, the jacket was printed with advertisements to the rear panel and the flaps, whilst the front panel was left blank, enabling the book to be identified by the visible wording and illustration on the front cover of the binding. The dustjacket was usually discarded by the buyer or, in some cases, returned to the bookseller, marked up to indicate which books the customer was interested in purchasing next. Where the wrapper was retained by the reader it rarely survived subsequent handling, and consequently copies are now very rarely encountered with the glassine intact. The dustjacket provides fascinating information about Beatrix Potter’s books and related merchandise as well as showing the book in its most original and complete form. (1)

The Lord Mayor of London, Sir John Cowan, received complaints from several parts of London describing a demonic creature with eyes like balls of fire and hands like icy claws, and able to bound from roof-top to roof-top with ease. The first claimed sighting of Spring-heeled Jack was in London in 1837, and the last in Liverpool in 1904. The Duke of Wellington, although aged nearly 70 went out armed on horseback to hunt and kill the monster. The Army in 1870 set traps to catch him after scared sentries reported being terrified by a man who sprang onto the roof of their sentry box. For a while, suspicion rested on the eccentric young Marquis of Waterford, who was considered ‘wild’ by Victorian society. (13)

Thanks for letting me see it. I have been through it and noted several possible candidates. Now then: those diaries:- I should like to look at them, though I dread adding to the pile of the last year's arrears due to my having been so often and for so long out of action' (11 February 1953); 'I have made several deep dives into that vast bag, and found a great deal of interest. I think the owner knowing all the people mentioned, should make a selection from all the diaries, from start to finish, thus making it the record of a whole fishing life... ' (3 June 1953); 'Here is a copy I made of the letter written by James Leisenring to G. E. M. Sques. I wish you would read it and see if you think as highly of it as I do. I go to the Itchen tomorrow (to catch cold and no grayling)' (28 November 1954); 'Smythe. I have been wasting a lot of time doing a job for the National Book League, producing their new "Reader's Guide" to Fishing books. In it, I have taken the chance of calling attention to the Smythe diary, quoting a sentence from it and saying that it "has been edited by his son and is shortly to be published"...' (19 February 1955); 'Of course Smythe must have his Fishing Gazette stuff if he wants it, even though it is poor beside the Provost's genuine diary' (25 May 1955); ‘Here is H. A. Morritt’s farewell book … Anyhow, I shall be most grateful to you if you will consider adding this to your growing list of really good fishing books. You might follow it up with other very short but very good books, such as a reprint of John Beever (1849), or The Northern Angler (1800), etc.’ (13 August 1955); ‘I think your idea of a series of reprints of all the smaller fishing classics is a very good one. All the best fishing books were written in the days when no one thought it necessary to inflate them. Such a series would allow the inclusion of such books as Morritt’s, and all the books would help each other. In the end the series would offer safe bets to mothers and wives wanting to give presents to sons and husbands. You might lead off with Beever for the fly-fishers and balance him with Nobbes (1682) on the pike. Two days ago by pure accident I came across the only copy I’ve ever seen of John Beever’s first edition of 1849… a small paper-bound of 64 pages… Blurb for Smythe. Do send me the proofs. I could send the blurb by return of post if only I had the proofs. If you have no proofs, let me know and I will, with greater difficulty, write an inferior blurb’ (19 August 1955), a few marks and filing pin holes, etc., a total of 16 pages, 4to/8vo, plus an Autograph Postcard Signed, 3 sheets of proof notes and a collection of 30 related carbon copies of correspondence from Kennerley to Ransome on the same subjects (a folder)

752* Hughes (Edward James, 1930-1998).

Typed Letter Signed ‘Ted Hughes’, Court Green, North Tawton, Devon, 1 November 1978, to Birgitta Ivarson, apologising for the fact that his poem about Crow and the Birds is giving her trouble and continuing to give a detailed exposition of the poem, ‘The idea is that all the birds involve themselves in the inner machinery of the world, the worlds of correspondences, the complex and interrelated beauty of this wholeness. Crow is involved, in this poem, only in his own hungry activity. Yes, you have seen that. Each line about the birds is, as you’ve seen, a coupling of a bird with some other image. Both items in each pair are linked - but in various ways, some more simply than others. The Eagle is, conventionally, associated with the sunrise, where it is supposed to renew itself and particularly its eyesight: in this sense it is the spirit of the sun, in its most radiant aspect. It was not deliberately planned, but Crow, of course, is the spirit of the sun in its obscured or eclipsed aspect (and in this sense the spirit of the moon.) So the Eagle begins what Crow ends, here’, explaining certain phrases including ‘a chime of wineglasses’, ‘a woman’s song in a cavern’, ‘the breath of a violet’, tomorrow’s conscience’, ‘bessemer upglare’, and mentioning the peewit, the bullfinch and the wryneck, ending, ‘It would be quite easy, given the basic plan of contrasts and opposition, and inner resemblances, it would be quite easy to develope the associations of the lines a great deal further than these hints’, signed at foot in blue ballpoint pen, 2 pp., 4to, in fine condition with the original postmarked envelope addressed to the recipient in Sweden

A highly illuminating response from Ted Hughes about one of his most important works. Crow: From the Life and Songs of the Crow was first published in 1970 by Faber and Faber. It was written mostly between 1966 and 1969, following a barren period after the death of Sylvia Plath. Hughes himself described Crow as his masterpiece. (1) £500 - £800

Autograph Letter Signed, ‘James Joyce’, La Résidence, Paris, 4 October 1931, to Mrs Pinker on hotel stationery, beginning, ‘For goodness sake do not allude ever again to my dreadful injury that night at your house. What happened to my voice I do not know l’est pour bien plus!’, regretting that they cannot dine with them and hoping that they will do soon, and asking her to tell Mr Pinker ‘the absurd passage about cricket is marked on p. 231 of the Paris Magazine which I am sending him today. He will remember I spoke to him about it, a few minor spots, written in black ink on the first and fourth page of a bifolium, 2 pp., 8vo, together with an earlier Autograph Letter Signed from ‘Rolly’, Vanderbilt Hotel, New York, 11 July 1929, to Vonnie & Ralf, saying that he is longing to hear about Rabbit from Betty in her next letter, ‘Yesterday I called on the important New York House of Jas Pinker & Co. and made myself known to your brother ... I have had a most interesting time during the short time available and wish I could stay much longer and go to other parts of America and also have a glimpse of Canada... ‘, 4 pp., square 8vo, plus an Autograph Letter Signed from Trevor R. V. Blakemore to Mrs Pinker, Sark, Channel Islands, 16 May 1931, asking her whether she would care to come down to Ranelagh on a polo afternoon and ‘I do hope the remainder of my poems come up to your very kind estimation of the prelude poem, and that it was of some use to your husband in his sad loss... ‘, some overall spotting, filing holes to left margin, 2 pp., 4to

James Joyce and his wife, Nora Barnacle, were married on 4 July 1931 and moved to Paris where they lived in the hotel La Residence between September and October 1931.

The literary agency of James Pinker & Sons was founded by James Brand Pinker and, upon his death, was run by his two sons Eric Seabrooke and James Randolph until November 1930 when the partnership was dissolved. Eric moved to New York and James stayed in Britain. Yvonne ‘Vonnie’ Pinker was the wife of James Randolph Pinker, the literary agent for James Joyce.

ANTHONY ROSSITER (1926-200)

Anthony Rossiter RWA MSIAD was a British landscape painter. He was educated at Eton and studied painting at Chelsea Art School from 1947-51. He was a Romantic visionary, a ‘poet’ whose particular heaven was the Mendip Hills in Somerset. Gnarled hedgerows, tumbling stone walls, broken gates, reflections in water and ploughed fields were all his subject matter. His works also included portraits, most notably that of W. H. Auden.

From the age of 21 onwards, Rossiter lived with manic depression (bi-polar disorder). The inspiring ecstatic highs to the lows of numbing despair were exploited creatively and became an integral part of his work.

Although he had won a place at New College, Oxford to read English under David Cecil, Rossiter knew his real vocation was to become an artist, and opted instead for Chelsea Art School (1947-1951). His tutors included Henry Moore, and Robert Medley. His painting initially had the lyrical qualities of John Nash and the Realist painters of the 1950s and 1960s, developing then into a more vigorous expressionist style. In 1962 Rossiter made his first trip to the USA after winning an Arts Council Bursary. He had been invited to stay with the poet Robert Frost in New Hampshire and they became friends. On his return from the USA, Rossiter began work on The Pendulum, which was published by Gollancz in 1966. A second volume of autobiography, The Golden Chain, was published by Hutchinson’s in 1970.

His pictures can be seen in various public collections in the UK and USA, including The Victoria and Albert Museum, London, The Ashmolean, Oxford, The Government Art Collection, London Transport Museum, The General Post Office, and The Robert Frost Collection.

Provenance: From the family, by direct descent. For further information please see https://www.anthonyrossiter.co.uk

755* Auden (Wystan Hugh, 1907-1973). Typed Letter Signed, ‘W. H. Auden’, Kirchstetten (Westbahn), Hinterholz #6, Austria, 9 July 1966, to Anthony Rossiter, referring to and discussing his reading of Rossiter’s book and recommending authors and books o read, ’I am most grateful to you for having got your publishers to send me a copy of your book [The Pendulum], which I have just finished reading for the first time with fascination and delight. Your descriptions of what I call The Vision of Dame Kind are extraordinary. I expect you know most of the ‘Pendulum’ literature. In case you don’t, may I can recommend: Christopher Smart, Jubilate Agno, John Clare, Holderlin, Richard Jeffries, The Story of the Heart, Ruskin (Nobody can possibly wade through all of his work, but there is an excellent selection by Sir Kenneth Clark … I agree with you that the Vision cannot possibly be a delusion, even if the subject of it be at times in a state requiring hospitalisation. The various accounts corroborate each other in a way that only descriptions of something ‘real’ could do. Speaking of corroboration, I was interested to read that at times the birds seemed to speak to you; when Virginia Woolf was ‘high’, they talked Greek to her. You speak, as others have done, of suffering during the negative phase from a feeling of sinfulness and guilt. Is this feeling vague and undifferentiated, or do you accuse yourself of specific sins? …’, some creasing from folds, 1 page, folio, with the accompanying envelope

The artist Anthony Rossiter (1926-2000) published two autobiographical books in which he explores the highs and lows of his bipolar disorder and its impact on his creativity. In this first of 28 letters received from Auden he refers to his reading of the first of these autobiographies, The Pendulum (Gollancz, 1966). Auden was to write a foreword to the first American edition published by Helix Press in 1969 with the expanded title of The Pendulum: A Round Trip to Revelation. In the final years of his life, Auden spent part of the year living in Austria. He passed away in Vienna in 1973 and was laid to rest in Austria. (1)

Auden’, Kirchstetten (Westbahn), Hinterholz #6, Austria, 23 July 1966, to Anthony Rossiter, thanking him for his letter and cable, ‘It is, I think, very important to realise the difference between what a psychologist means when he talks about the Super-Ego and ‘guilt feelings’, and conscience and guilt-before-God in a theological sense. Our super-egos are more or less what St Paul means by the Law and are, in his terminology, ‘of the Flesh’, that is to say, the creation of our homes, our social backgrounds, our schooling. Yes, as you and I have been, we are fortunate in these, there are many sinful acts we shall not be seriously tempted to commit because, should the thought of committing then occur to our minds, we shall immediately say to ourselves: “An Auden, a Rossiter, doesn’t do that sort of thing. The sinful acts to which persons of our social background, living in the middle of the twentieth century, are most liable, are, I should guess, either sexual or making cruel remarks about others either to their face or behind their back. We seldom steal or physically torment others, and, should we violate our “code”, should we, for example, cheat in a croquet match, we immediately have acute feelings of guilt: we have let ourselves down…’, continuing in a similar vein with thoughts about guilt, conscience, sinful thoughts and the super-ego and quoting from Nietzsche (‘He who despise himself, nevertheless esteems himself as a self-despiser’), then saying he is off to Salzburg for rehearsals and an opera [The Bassarids] by [Hans Werner] Henze for which he co-wrote the libretto and concluding with a recommendation, ‘By the way, another “nature” poet who is hardly known at all, and whom I find most interesting is Ivor Gurney, who died in 1937 after spending the last fifteen years of his life in an asylum. The poems are often clumsy, but there is something extraordinary there’, with two hand-written post scripts in blue ballpoint pen, ‘PS one of the best passages in The Pendulum – so moving and awful – I thought the monologue of Captain Garret Butler … PPS I have only one bone to pick with you – your overestimation of Jung.

Have just finished reading it and I am enormously impressed. I don’t know of anyone else, except possibly Virginia Woolf, who has such a sense of the poetry of objects, of the visible as a world of sacramental signs.

I have very rarely been in Columbia at all, what with the hullabaloo appending Deliverance', the trip to London for the British publication, the negotiations with film people, and the rest. I hope by now that you have read Deliverance, and have found something in it for you. Please understand how very much moved I am by your congratulatory statement. I doubt that I will ever write another novel - though I might, even so - and so it is doubly important for people whom I esteem, as I do you, to like the book, and even more important that they should be so kind as to write and tell me so. I won't go on and on in this immoderate vein, but will just close on thanks, once more... ', telling that he is going to choose another Rossiter picture to buy but only after 'a lot of work to which I am already committed, both myself, by Warner Brothers out in Hollywood, and by other Agencies over which I have little or no control', old sellotape stains, mostly to margins, one page, 4to, together with a group of 8 further Typed Letters Signed, ‘Jim’, from Dickey to Rossiter, 1969-73, as a friend and fan/collector of Rossiter’s art, praising The Pendulum in one and saying that he is re-reading The Golden Chain for the second time in another, ‘and think it’s just terrific’ and wondering if the painting on the front, ‘Conflagration of Cornstooks’ is available to buy, and in one letter referring to Deliverance once more, ‘… thanks for the things you are kind enough to say about Deliverance, both the novel and the film. Yes; the English reviews have been very good, and a great deal more perceptive than the American ones, good or otherwise, and this is all very gratifying’, a total of 7 pages, 4to, with the accompanying envelopes, and two carbon copies of letters from Rossiter to Dickey

774* Fowles (John, 1926-2005). A group of 4 Typed Letters and 1 Autograph Letter Signed, Belmont House/Underhill Farm, Lyme Regis, 1960-74, all to Anthony Rossiter, the first saying that their stepdaughter Anna has been accepted for Bristol, that Elizabeth and he are both sorry we missed the exhibition 'which I hope was successful - and the book. I saw only the rather nasty review from Jupiter Cyril; bad notices from that quarter are almost a compliment, I think, and I'm sure you got justice elsewhere', the second (16 May 1968) giving his thoughts about The Pendulum 'a very remarkable document of courage; a remarkable practical proof of what R. D. Laing has been on about for some time now (hope you've read his book), with the added pleasure of your being a much better writer than he is - and of course, writing from the inside. I wish only that there had been some illustrations - but I gather that's been corrected in the American edition. The book reminded me at times of Montaigne - that almost inhuman contemplation of objectivity about one's own journey through life - and you can't have higher praise from me than that', the last letter (18 December 1974) seemingly referring to his collection of novellas and short stories The Ebony Tower (1974), 'I was delighted the artistic side of the title story meets your approval. I was rather afraid it might be a case of fools rushing in... I think my stepdaughter and her recently acquired husband, who is doing pottery at the RCA, were a little horrified at the use I made of their own miscries in the arteducation world. I have also just returned from shocking the Americans a little by suggesting that most of the New York School gigantists are ludicrously over-rated. But so many there have invested so much in the stuff that it is rather like attacking the New York Stock Exchange!', a total of 8 pages, 8vo, plus an Autograph Letter Signed from Elizabeth Fowles to Anneka (12 June 1968), plus the accompanying envelopes and Anthony Rossiter's first edition copy of Fowles's The Collector (Cape, 1963) with some pencil annotations, underscorings and coffee stains, hinges cracked, original cloth in worn dust jacket, 8vo (7) £200 - £300

776* Huxley (Aldous, 1894-1963 & Osmond, Humphry, 1917-2004). A good group of 8 letters from Huxley and Osmond to Anthony Rossiter concerning hallucinogenic drugs and related matters, 1962-67, comprising 3 Autograph Letters Signed, ‘Aldous Huxley’, California & London, 6 March, 7 June & 13 September 1962, all to Anthony Rossiter, the longest first letter thanking him for his letter and the opening pages of the pendulum book, ‘I hope you will soon complete this account of your experience; for I am sure it will contain much that the rest of us will find enlightening. My own experiments with mescaline LSD and psilocybin have helped me to understand many things in the fields of art, religion and philosophy which, before, had seemed incomprehensible or had passed unnoticed. (Some of these insights were set down in the sequel to The Doors of Perception – “Heaven & Hell”. Others I have tried to set forth in the final chapter of my forthcoming utopian phantasy “Island”.) But there is so much more to be recorded and reflected upon, and you, I would think, are one of the few people adequately equipped, by talent and pendulum-temperament, to do it...’, suggesting it would be a good idea for Rossiter to contact his friend Dr Humphry Osmond ‘who first gave me mescaline...’ and giving his address, written in black ink on both sides of a folding air mail letter with postally-used address panel; the second letter written in a large hand in black ink on plain paper with filing holes, offering to meet up should Rossiter ever come to Los Angeles, and the final letter to Rossiter now in New York saying that he is now in London and expects to be back in California in early October, wishing him luck with his book and painting, both 1 page; together with:3 Autograph and 2 Typed Letters Signed, ‘Humphry Osmond’, 1962/1967, all to Anthony Rossiter following their introduction by Aldous Huxley, all concerning Rossiter’s ideas as set forth in his autobiography The Pendulum and Osmond’s own thoughts and observations about mental illness and drugs, a total of 8 pages, the earliest autograph letter damaged by biopredation (near-contemporary complete typed carbon copy supplied by Rossiter), one other typed letter with old marginal sellotape remains, various sizes, plusRossiter’s paperback copy of Huxley’s book The Doors of Perception and Heaven and Hell (Penguin, 1960 reprint), heavily underscored and marked by Rossiter throughout with scattered comments, mostly in pencil, ink ownership signature and note to half-title, original printed orange wrappers, 8vo Humphry Fortescue Osmond (1917-2004) was an English psychiatrist who moved to Canada and later the United States. He is known for inventing the word psychedelic and for his research into interesting and useful applications for psychedelic drugs. Osmond also explored aspects of the psychology of social environments, in particular how they influenced welfare or recovery in mental institutions. In 1953, Aldous Huxley was a renowned poet and playwright who, in his twenties, had gone on to achieve success and acclaim as a novelist and widely published essayist. He had lived in the USA for well over a decade and gained some experience screenwriting for Hollywood films. Huxley had initiated a correspondence with Osmond. Huxley lamented that contemporary education seemed typically to have the unintended consequence of constricting the minds of the educated, closing students’ minds to inspiration and many things other than material success and consumerism. Huxley asked Osmond whether he would be kind enough to supply a dose of mescaline. In May of that year, Osmond travelled to the USA for a conference and, while there, gave Huxley the requested mescaline and supervised the ensuing experience in Huxley’s neighbourhood. As a result of his experience, Huxley produced the book The Doors of Perception, describing the look of the Hollywood Hills and his responses to artwork while under the influence. Osmond’s name appears in four footnotes in the early pages of the book (in references to articles he had written about medicinal use of hallucinogenic drugs). Anthony Rossiter began his correspondence with Huxley and Osmond while writing his autobiography, The Pendulum (Gollancz, 1966). From the ecstasy of the creative high to the agonising despair of depression, The Pendulum was the creative artist’s riposte to the cult success of Doors of Perception (Chatto & Windus, 1954). Where Huxley induced heightened perception by carefully controlled experiments with mescaline, Rossiter’s swings came naturally and without warning. (10) £700 - £1,000

777* Lee (Laurie, 1914-1997). A group of 3 Autograph Letters Signed, 'Laurie', Slad & London, 1964-67, all to Anthony Rossiter, the first saying that it is good to hear from him again but sorry that they'll be in London the weekend of his party, 'It is in any case almost impossible for us to get either to Bath or Bristol from here (with the babies) as the buses/trains are so complicated and devious. But we hope you may take time off to motor up here with the family one day. This is only a small charcoal-burner's cottage, but we should love to see you here' (7 May 1964), the second letter (22 February 1967) referring to his book The Pendulum which 'is most vivid and moving, an intense experience and written with remarkable clarity and insight. I also believe that there is a true mystical experience here, as well as humility - whatever the blurb may say', the final letter (23 May 1967) regretting that as he is already engaged in an Arts Council sponsorship he isn't allowed another one and suggesting he try C. Day Lewis, the second letter with heavy old sellotape staining to all four margins not affecting text, a total of 4 pp., 8vo, together with a Christmas Card Signed from Laurie and family, plus Autograph Letter Signed from Stephen Spender (giving Auden's New York address), 4 Autograph Letters Signed from the poet Charles Tomlinson (one with sellotape stain at upper margin), plus an Autograph Postcard Signed from each of Cecil Day Lewis and his wife Jill, plus one Autograph Letter Signed and carbon copies of two other letters from the American poet Robert Lowell (14)

It is lovely to think you have gone on so single-mindedly, and that Gilbert Spencer, whom I used to see quite often, is encouraging you to hold an exhibition', another saying 'I am so touched by your saying that I influenced you towards adopting your present way of life. I know I played a small part - but it was you, it was yourself, your driving force and single-mindedness that really guided you!' (25 March 1963), 'I want to tell you how much The Pendulum has moved and impressed me. I usually try my best not to review books written by my friends: but this book of yours seemed to me a completely special case. I asked the literary editor of The Listener if I could review it for him - and he agreed - and I do hope you will like what I have written. It came from the heart and I took trouble with it...

779* Sassoon (Siegfried Loraine, 1886-1967). Two Autograph Letters Signed with monogram ‘SS’, Heytesbury House, Wiltshire, 5 November 1965 & 27 February 1967, both to Anthony Rossiter, the first referring to Dom Aelred and saying that it is difficult for him to drive himself to Downside [School] now, before continuing, ‘It is extraordinary, the consoling effect the Memoirs have on people. A famous steeplechase rider wrote to me last March, saying that it had been the greatest blessing to his mind while in hospital after a bad accident. I always say that the clue to its charm is that it is an unprofessional piece of writing. My later books are more skilful, though not less natural, I hope. You mentioned John Moore. He was brought here once, about twelve years ago, and I found him quite delightful, like his books. I hope you will bring yourself here some afternoon. I am something of a solitary, though befriended by my beeches!; the second letter referring to a recent visit by Dom Aelred and saying that he should wait until the spring before visiting, ‘You must also realize – in your tremendous young intellectual explorativeness – that you are addressing the much simplified mind of a complete quietest! I still try to respond to what the world expects of me – (my renown as a war writer, as you infer, has become almost a burden on me) – but I exist in a kind of domestic retreat from worldly concerns. And am, as always, that simple soul George Sherston. Him you will find in his library – living a lot in meditation on past life and those I have loved and lost. That self, people say, does give out the light of faith and submissiveness. But the intellectual adventurer is not there. You must take him as you find him!’, both 1 page, 8vo, with the accompanying envelope to the second letter

Sassoon and Rossiter shared a friendship with Dom Aelred, a monk at Downside School. Dom Aelred was Christopher Ingram Watkin (1918-1997), a housemaster at Downside School, 1948-62, and then Headmaster, 1962-75. Siegfried Sassoon converted to Catholicism in 1957 under the instruction of Dom Sebastian Moore at Downside Abbey, close to his home. Sassoon also sometimes played for a Downside Abbey team called ‘The Ravens’, continuing playing well into his seventies. After meeting Dom Father Aelred Watkin, the Headmaster of Downside School near Bath, in 1960, Rossiter became increasingly drawn to the Catholic Church. He adored the poetry of Gregorian ritual and in his own search for truth, was attracted by the combination of moral values and mysticism that the Benedictines taught. He was received into the Catholic Church in 1962, the beginning of a lifelong attachment to Downside Abbey and to its monastic community. This led to his being asked to paint the portrait of Dom Father Aelred Watkin upon his retirement as Headmaster of the school. The painting hangs, with the other portraits of former headmasters, in the school dining room.
