Early Printed Maps of the British Isles 1477 - 1650, no.137, state 5. Christopher Saxton published his twenty sheet wall map in 1583. It was reissued by Cade & Morgan in 1678. Philip Lea aquired the copper plates in about 1685 and re-published the map on a smaller scale designed to be used as a travelling map. He reduced the map to ten full sheets and four half sheets and removed a great deal of the sea, thus making the map relevant to land based travellers. The map was pasted into five horizontal strips. The top three sheets made up of two sheets and the last two sheets made of two sheets with a half sheet pasted at each end. It appears that two of these half sheets are lacking from this example. Philip Lea re-engraved the plates at least five times during his perod of ownership. This example is his 5th and final state and therefore state 7 of a total of nine states. Lea moved from Poultry to Cheapside in 1687 and remained there until 1700.

Lot 258

A fine and remarkable survival of one of many such locally produced artefacts decorated with the coats of arms of the ‘205 worthy Patriots’ who voted against the Excise bill. This large cloth was possibly produced for ‘Ladies Teatables or Toilets’. The excise bill was proposed in 1733 by the prime minister Sir Robert Walpole. He planned to shift the burden of taxation from landed wealth, mostly paid by the country gentry who dominated the House of Commons, to indirect taxes on consumption of wine and tobacco, affecting the people. Walpole had already introduced excise duties on tea, chocolate and coffee in 1724, and in 1732 he had revived the salt duty, both measures being passed through the House of Commons. Walpole’s judgement on this new excise bill was wrong and the opposition marshaled an intense and effective campaign against the measure, the intense dislike being associated with interference by bureaucrats in people’s property and daily lives. Eventually Walpole was forced to drop the excise scheme to much public rejoicing. Historically, it can be argued that the budget as we know it has its origins here. £500-800 (1)

288 Bible [Old Testament - Leeser, Isaac]. The Twenty-Four Books of the Holy Scriptures: Carefully Translated According to the Massoretic Text, on the Basis of the English Version, After the best Jewish Authorities; and Supplied with Short Explanatory Notes. By Isaac Leeser, 1st edition, Philadelphia: Published at 371 Walnut Street. 5614 [1853-1854], [iv],1011pp., occasional spotting to first & last few leaves, light toning mostly to margins, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers with purple cloth hinges and gilt dentelle decoration to turn-ins, contemporary plum morocco (label to lower pastdown of Valentine, Printer, Bookseller & Binder, 34 Alfred St., W.C.), elaborate gilt and blind decoration to binding and board edges, large pierced & engraved brass clasp, joints and extremities rubbed, large 4to, page dimensions 275 x 211mm (approximately 10 6/8 x 8 3/8 inches) Deinard 847; Singerman 1271; Goldman 12. This volume is of great importance, being the first edition of the first English translation of the Hebrew Bible by an American Jew, commonly called The Leeser Bible. Isaac Leeser (1806-1868) was an Ashkenazi Jew born in Neunkirchen, Westphalia, Prussia and orphaned at an early age. He moved to Richmond, Virginia to join his uncle Zalman Rehine at the age of 18. In 1829 he received an invitation to occupy the pulpit of Philadelphia’s congregation Mikveh Israel. Leeser became a pioneer of the Jewish pulpit in the United States, and founder of the Jewish press of America. In producing this translation of the Hebrew Bible, his aim was to provide the Jewish community of America with an accurate English text of the Bible, unaffected or influenced by conversionist motivations. In his preface to the volume, Leeser writes “The translator is an Israelite in faith, in the full sense of the word... that in his going through this work, he has thrown aside all bias, discarded every preconceived opinion, and translated the text before him without regard to the result thence arising for his creed.” and he continues to state that this translation produced for those of the same religious persuasion is “a version of the Bible which has not been made by the authority of churches in which they have no confidence.” £8000-12000 (1)

331* Manuscript Frisket sheet fragment. A fragment from a liturgical manuscript with musical notation, probably France 15th century; subsequently reused as a printing mask ‘Frisket’ and overprinted in red ink in the early 16th century, comprising four vellum fragments professionally rejoined using collagen skin, recto with 16 lines of manuscript text in black & red, one initial in blue and one larger initial in red, with four lines of music each on 4-line red staves, verso with 20 lines of manuscript text in black & red, with short portion of music on 4-line red stave, the reverse also overprinted with text in red ink, with parts of manuscript cut-out to allow for red ink to be printed through when reused as a frisket mask, during subsequent use in the early 17th century the manuscript was cut into strips (4 in this case) and reused as strengthening in a binding, maximum dimensions 231 x 142mm (approximately 9 x 5.5 inches), professionally contained in conservation mount This manuscript begins with part of “Tantum ergo”, being the last two verses of the hymn “Pange Linqua”, which was sung on Corpus Christi or Maundy Thursday. The four individual fragments were discovered in a folio 3 volume Greek & Latin Bible, “Vetus Testamentum...” published Paris: Nicolaum Buon, 1628 (Darlow & Moule 4674), when undergoing restoration in the 1990s. Friskets are a rare survival which illustrate the early printing of books in red and black ink. They were often disposed of once their use had ended and therefore only a few examples survive. A frisket is a sheet of material which was used during the early printing process. It was placed between the paper and the printing block, to mask off and protect unprinted areas of the paper sheet from stray ink, allowing all but the red rubrics to be printed through. As a result of this technique the frisket sheet was overprinted in red letterpress. Early printers often recycled medieval manuscript leaves for this purpose, and some were then reused during the bookbinding process. See Margaret M. Smith, “Fragments used for ‘Servile’ Purposes: The St Bride Library Frisket for Early Red Printing,” in Linda L. Brownrigg and Margaret M. Smith, eds., Interpreting and Collecting Fragments of Medieval Books (Los Altos Hills, Calif.: Red Gull Press, 2000), pp.177-188; and noted by Smith in the St. Bride Journal ‘Ultrabold 3’ (2007): “The Red-Printing Frisket at St. Bride Library.” Elizabeth Savage (Upper). “Red Frisket Sheets, c.1490-1700: The Earliest Artefacts of Colour Printing in the West.” Papers of the Bibliographical Society of America 108, no. 4 (December 2014): pp.477-522, who lists 21 in total. “ This complex object, a manuscript leaf that was re-used first as a frisket sheet for printing selected text in red in one book and then in the pasteboard in the binding of another, is the earliest artifact of any color printing process in the West.” £1000-1500 (1)

A surprisingly good copy of a very rare complete first edition of the most notorious sex manual of the age. ‘Aristotle’s Masterpiece was the most popular book about women’s bodies, sex, pregnancy, and childbirth in Britain and America from its first appearance in 1684 up to at least the 1870s. More than 250 editions are known, but all are very rare... It was sold furtively by country peddlers and in general stores and taverns; regular booksellers seldom advertised it, though they usually had it under the counter’ (The Library Company of Philadelphia, ‘Treasures’, online catalogue). The attribution to Aristotle is completely spurious and no doubt a ploy to give the risqué work respectability. In fact it was assembled from Levinus Lemnius’s The Secret Miracles of Nature (1564) and Jakob Rüff’s midwifery manual De conceptu et generatione hominis (1554). Although it was effectively banned until the mid-twentieth century, the prohibition didn’t keep it from circulating: it was reprinted endlessly until the early twentieth century and became one of the most notorious and widely distributed sex books in the English language, with a London edition being published as late as 1930. Such enduring popularity was partly due to the practical advice on pregnancy and the care of infants, and partly to its rather sensationalised descriptions of the sexual act and forms of monstrosity. This is the earliest publication date for the Master-piece, ESTC listing 3 variant settings of 1684, all printed by J. How, with no priority having been established. ESTC records only the incomplete British Library copy of our setting, which has line 11 of title ending “both”, line 18 of title ends “Ge-”, first line of imprint ends “sold”, signature B5 is under the “nt Bl” of “effluent Blood” and on p. 190 the fifth line from bottom begins with a capital “Q”. Identically, this copy has “Swee/things” rather than “Sweetings” in the imprint. Curiously, the only two complete copies of this setting noted have both been recently sold at auction by Bonhams, London: 12 November 2014, lot 47 & 24 June 2015, lot 157. In total ESTC records seven copies of the 1684 settings (British Library, Guildhall Library, Royal College of Surgeons, University of Pennsylvania, U.S. National Library of Medicine, Yale University, 2 copies), but all are incomplete to varying degrees.

A REGENCY LIBRARY

Elizabeth Greenly (1771-1839), later Lady Elizabeth Coffin Greenly. The life of Eliza, as she was known, is relatively well documented. An article by Major A.E.W. Salt, M.A., titled ‘The Greenly Diaries’ (Read 25th January, 1951) produced for the ‘Transactions of the Woolhope Naturalists’ Field Club Herefordshire’ is informative, as is The Greenly History, see link online at greenlyhistory.com. Elizabeth Brown Greenly was born at Titley Court, Herefordshire, on the 27 November 1771, the only child of William Greenly and his wife Elizabeth (née Brown(e)). They had a town house in Abergavenny and property near Cwmdu, Breconshire, as well as the estate in Herefordshire. Elizabeth, usually known as Eliza, was said to be ‘a person of so much real merit, & of such superior & general cultivation of mind, that her superiority to the contemporary and surrounding society was too self-evident not to excite astonishment…’. She was an ardent supporter of the Welsh causes of the day and was one of the first to support Iolo Morganwg (Edward Williams 1747-1826) beginning her patronage in 1806, and continuing for the rest of his life. She kept Diaries from 1784 to within six months of her death in 1839, which were fair copied by her in 1835, and these are present at Titley Court. The six volumes of Diaries were ‘edited’ by Eliza and presumably the more scandalous content expunged. Names that appear include Byron, Lady Oxford, Miss Bowdler, Matthew Boulton and a host of other figures. Entries convey the author’s responses to current events and her daily life. She frequently related anecdotes about dignitaries and celebrities, including the Empress Josephine, King George III, Marie Antoinette, Byron, Mary Wollstonecraft, Hannah More, Charlotte Turner Smith, Sarah Siddons, Rev. Rowland Hill, Dr Thomas Beddoes and Abb Augustin Barruel. She commented on customs and conditions in countries to which her friends travelled, including Turkey, Ireland and France. She also wrote of new discoveries in medicine, including vaccination and nitrous oxide; of the merchant ships known as Indiamen; of the excavation of the Roman villa in Woodchester, Gloucestershire and of the living condition of the emigres in England. The Library contents illustrate her numerous interests from Welsh to Science with a few volumes in French (self-taught & proficient), bibliana, female poets, literature & contemporary novels, topography & travel, two volumes purchased from the Sale of The Ladies of Llangollen, a first edition, first issue of ‘An Essay on Mind’ by Elizabeth Barrett Browning (lot 420), et al., the vast majority in contemporary bindings in good condition and the principal part signed and/or with her bookplate. The Library, the majority of which was acquired by Elizabeth Greenly, contains almost 1,000 volumes with many in contemporary bindings and housed in the Library at Titley Court where she had personally carved the frieze above the bookcases. The Library contents show her to have been a polymath with an enquiring mind, self-taught in French and Welsh, a gifted amateur artist whose pictures were exhibited including at the National Academy in 1803. She had a wide circle of friends and an extraordinary number of interests and correspondents. She travelled great distances for social occasions and supported many causes with a sound head for business and progressive ideas. An enduring sense of Elizabeth Greenly is evident in the contents of the Library. The man Eliza eventually married, in 1811, was Admiral Sir Isaac Coffin, a man more than ten years her senior, and an erratic seafarer who suffered from gout. He took the name Greenly on marrying Eliza, heiress to a considerable fortune. Isaac Coffin (1759-1839) Admiral of the Blue, married Elizabeth at Titley on 3 April 1811. Elizabeth was the heiress of William Greenly, and Isaac briefly changed his surname to Coffin-Greenly on 11 February 1811, but reverted to Coffin on 13 March 1813. Eliza was said to have ‘some eccentric habits (such as getting up in the middle of the night to write sermons)’ and maybe this contributed to his less than satisfactory behaviour towards her following their marriage. Her marriage to Sir Isaac Coffin (Greenly) and his cruel desertion of her for seven years is well recorded. In 1835 Lady Greenly suffered a slight stroke and this, together with rheumatoid arthritis caused her to be less active. Previously she had been a keen horsewoman, and spent many hours on horseback travelling between Herefordshire, Monmouthshire, Glamorganshire and Breconshire. From then until her death in 1839, Lady Greenly was unable to attend the Eisteddfodau, although she continued to support and encourage them. Eliza Greenly died on 29 January 1839 and was buried at St. Peter’s Church, Titley. Her remains rest in the vault underneath the tower erected by herself at the west end of this church. 83

M.R. JAMES & JAMES MCBRYDE ARCHIVE James McBryde was a student and friend of M.R. James. In 1893 McBryde came up from St Helen’s to King’s College, Cambridge (where James was provost), to read Natural Sciences. Although McBryde was ten years younger than James the pair became firm friends. McBryde joined James’s bookish circle and was one of the select few who heard his ghost stories; other members included Walter Morley Fletcher and E.G. Swain (chaplain of King’s and himself a ghost story writer). It is believed that McBryde offered James the most significant friendship of his life. He accompanied him on several Continental holidays including the Scandinavian trips that had inspired ‘Number 13’, ‘Count Magnus’, and McBryde’s own illustrated comic fantasy, the ‘Story of a Troll Hunt’. In 1904 McBryde enrolled at the Slade School of Art and settled in London with his young wife Gwendolen (nee Grotrian). Shortly after, James approached McBryde with a view to illustrating his ghost stories. McBryde began the project with relish but sadly died a month later of complications following an appendix operation. He had only completed four illustrations for James’s stories before his death. In spite of the publisher suggesting another illustrator James was adamant that nobody could replace his friend, and the book ‘Ghost Stories of an Antiquary’ was published with just these four illustrations as a tribute to his friend. After McBryde’s death James arranged for the publication of ‘The Story of a Troll Hunt’ and wrote an introduction for the volume. James was named legal guardian of McBryde’s daughter Jane who was born six months after her father’s death. James maintained a lifelong friendship with McBryde’s widow Gwen and his daughter Jane, the two women becoming a surrogate family for him.

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 the Auctioneer 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 best bid, 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.
