THE LIBRARY OF PAUL SOKOLOFF (1948-2012) A committed amateur lepidopterist, Paul Sokoloff made a quiet but significant contribution to the field of entomology. A member of the British Entomological & Natural History Society (BENHS), he was elected its President for 1984. He was also a regular contributor to the Entomologist’s Record and Journal of Variation, serving as editor of this journal from 1985 to 1995, following the retirement of Michael Chalmers-Hunt. His close involvement in the Amateur Entomologist’s Society (AES), led to the publication in 1984 of his monograph ‘Breeding the British and European Hawk-moths’ as an AES Handbook. His antiquarian library was well known to fellow entomologists, and became an integral part of his historical research; his important editorial contribution in this area was acknowledged by the author David Dunbar in his work ‘British Butterflies: A History in Books’ (British Library, 2010).

THE LIBRARY OF DR. R. ELWYN HUGHES, F.I.B., F.L.S. (1928-2015), READER IN BIOCHEMISTRY, UNIVERSITY OF CARDIFF Richard Elwyn Hughes was born in Rhaeadr in Powys, and studied at St. Catherine’s College, University of Cambridge, where he later returned to complete his Phd research. His main research interest was in the field of nutrition, and he is best known for his work on ascorbic acid (vitamin C). His work on how this vitamin operates in the human body was published in a number of important academic journals, leading to his election as a Fellow of The Linnean Society of London. One of his major achievements was the clarification of the relationship between sustenance and health, notably in connection with sugar. A fluent Welsh speaker Hughes also supported the use of Welsh in all aspects of life in Wales, and for his commitment to Welsh in science, he was awarded the Science and Technology Medal of the National Eisteddfod in 2005.

After obtaining his medical degree in 1769, Stark, encouraged by his friends Benjamin Franklin and Sir John Pringle began a series of dietary experiments on himself, making meticulous records of the effects. He began with bread and water, which lasted for 31 days, and gradually introduced other foods such as olive oil, milk, roast goose, boiled beef, fat, figs and veal, one at a time. After two months he recorded that his gums were red and swollen and prone to bleeding, and after eight months he died in February 1770 (from the inevitable scurvy) aged just 29.

141* Donovan (Edward, 1768-1837). Five original watercolour paintings of Tasmanian lepidoptera, together five 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, carefully titled in ink above ‘Van Diemans Land Lepidoptera’ and four with plant title below, both within ruled frame, mount size 35.5 x 26cm (14 x 10.25ins) Provenance: Private collection, Gloucestershire. Irish writer, artist, and zoologist Edward Donovan is best known for his sumptuously illustrated natural history publications, but he was also an avid collector of natural history specimens. Donovan’s collection was compiled from his own excursions in the British Isles as well as purchases at auction of items from voyages of exploration. Furthermore, he was a Fellow of the Linnean Society and the Wernerian Natural History Society which gave him access to the best collections and libraries in London. In 1807 he founded his own collection, the London Museum and Institute of Natural History, in which he exhibited several hundred cases of specimens of British mammals, birds, reptiles, fishes, insects, shells, corals, minerals, fossils and botanical specimens. The 1808 catalogue numbers the collection at “nearly thirty thousand individual articles” and describes the museum as “a national academy of the natural history of the country”. Donovan therefore had numerous invaluable resources from which to draw when writing and illustrating his books. Although there are some small holdings of original paintings by Donovan in institutions in the UK and America, original watercolours by him are seldom found on the open market. Four of the items offered here are inscribed in manuscript with the name of the plant, as follows: Patersonia Glauca; Lechenaultia Formosa; Calostemma Purpureum; Kennedia Coccinea. These designs are particularly desirable, being apparently intended for an unpublished work. (5) £2000-3000

The author furnishes his readers with a striking example of what may become of man when he eliminates God, Saviour, Bible, Faith and Belief from his life and claps his immortal soul “under hatches”...’, an autograph letter signed from Ottoline Morrell’s cousin Count Goddard Bentinck, 21 September 1931, to the author Philip and sending the letter with this copy of the book ‘which you kindly lent the Emperor, which I hope will reach you safely.

Ottoline Morrell met the Kaiser in Holland when staying with her cousin Count Goddard Bentinck and wrote in her journal: ‘He enters an exceedingly impressive figure, with a remarkably handsome head, a sailor like body - shorter than I had imagined but the head much finer - very alert and obviously histrionic and vain, but too cultivated and clever to show it...’. The Kaiser’s annotations in the book take the author to task repeatedly and he writes several hundred words at the end of chapter 3. When the author talks about natural rulers and what makes them such, the Kaiser’s comments in the margins include: ‘nonsense!’, ‘because they feel it a Heavenimposed task!’, ‘prescribed by the Christian religion!’, ‘based upon the responsibility to Heaven’. His final comment at the foot of the last page is: ‘This book is unmitigated, atheistic, spiritual Bolshevism’.

George Kenyon was an activist against Catholic emancipation, whose staunch anti-Roman Catholic views led him to join the Orange order. His pamphlet, ‘Observations on the Roman Catholic Question’, was an incisive statement of the arguments against emancipation, in which he argues that concession would subvert the protestant nature of the government, the basis of the succession to the throne, and the union of church and state. It was first published in 1810 and reprinted in several later editions. The handwritten note on the front free endpaper begins: ‘This book is a collection of ye most vile, antimonarchical, seditious and rebellious pamphletts I ever read in my life; tis wrote with a design to subvert all order and to bring all things into anarchy and confusion, tis compos’d of falshoods, treachery and lies, and manifestly to ye dissolving all obligations and obedience to God, to our Rightfull Prince, to our Parents, to ye Magistrates, and to Our Masters...’. £200-300 (1)

The Fantasy Press was founded by Oscar Mellor in Oxford in 1951, and was closely associated with poets and writers connected with the university. Its scope was subsequently enlarged to include writers from Cambridge, and latterly to poets from all backgrounds. The Fantasy Poets series published many authors who later found international fame, and includes the work of Geoffrey Hill, Philip Larkin, Kingsley Amis, Adrian Mitchell and others. This is one of only three complete sets of the Fantasy Press publications formerly owned by the founder of the press, Oscar Mellor. One other set is now in the Bodleian Library, Oxford and another is in private hands in America. (86) £1500-2000

An unrestored copy of Beatrix Potter’s extremely rare first book: one of only 250 copies, and this copy inscribed by Beatrix Potter. The character of Peter Rabbit was based on Beatrix’s own pet rabbit, and he made his first appearance in a letter written in 1893 to Noel, the five-year-old offspring of her former governess, Annie Carter. Noel and his siblings so enjoyed this and subsequent letters that Beatrix thought about having the story published. In 1900 she sent the story to at least six different publishers, all of whom rejected it, including Frederick Warne, who later decided to take the book on. Undeterred, Beatrix decided to have her little book privately printed, and in 1901 250 copies were published priced at 1/6 each, of which this is one. They sold so well that in February 1902 she had a further 200 copies printed with slightly amended text. (1) £18000-20000

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 for further details.

CONDITIONS OF SALE AND BUSINESS 1. The Seller warrants to the Auctioneer and the buyer that he is the true owner or is properly authorised to sell the property by the true owner and is able to transfer good and marketable title to the property free from any third party claims. 2. (a) The highest bidder to be the buyer. If during the auction the Auctioneer considers that a dispute has arisen he has absolute authority to settle it or re-offer the lot. The Auctioneer may at his sole discretion determine the advance of bidding or refuse a bid, divide any lot, combine any two or more lots or withdraw any lot without prior notice. (b) Where goods are bought at auction by a buyer who has entered into an agreement with another or others that the other or others (or some of them) shall abstain from bidding for the goods and the buyer or other party or one of the other parties is a dealer (as defined in the Auction Biddings Agreement Act 1927) the buyer warrants that the goods are bought bona fide on joint account. 3. The buyer shall pay the price at which a lot is knocked down by the Auctioneer to the buyer (“the hammer price”) together with a premium of 19.5% of the hammer price. Where the lot is marked by an asterisk the premium will be subject to VAT at 23.40% which under the Auctioneer’s Margin Scheme will form part of the buyer’s premium on our invoice and will not be separately identified (the premium added to the hammer price will hereafter collectively be referred to as “the total sum due”). By making any bid the buyer acknowledges that his attention has been drawn to the fact that on the sale of any lot the Auctioneer will receive from the seller commission at its usual rates in addition to the said premium of 19.5% and assents to the Auctioneer receiving the said commission. 4. (a) The buyer shall forthwith upon the purchase give in his name and permanent address and pay to the Auctioneer immediately after the conclusion of the auction the total sum due. (b) The buyer may be required to pay down during the course of the sale the whole or any part of the total sum due, and if he fails to do so after such request the lot or lots may at the Auctioneer's absolute discretion be put up again and resold immediately. (c) The buyer shall at his own expense take away any lot or lots purchased no later than five working days after the auction day. (d) The Auctioneer may at his own discretion agree credit terms with a buyer and extend the time limits for collection in special cases but otherwise payment shall be deemed to have been made only after the Auctioneer has received cash or a sterling banker’s draft or the buyer's cheque has been cleared. 5. (a) If the buyer fails to pay for or take away any lot or lots pursuant to clause 4 or breaches any other condition of that clause the Auctioneer as agent for the seller shall be entitled after consultation with the seller to exercise one or other of the following rights: (i) Rescind the sale of that or any other lots sold to the buyer who defaults and re-sell the lot or lots whereupon the defaulting buyer shall pay to the Auctioneer any shortfall between the proceeds of that sale after deduction of costs of re-sale and the total sum due. Any surplus shall belong to the seller. (ii) Proceed for damages for breach of contract. (b) Without prejudice to the Auctioneer's rights hereunder if any lots or lots are not collected within five days or such longer period as the Auctioneer may have agreed otherwise, the Auctioneer may charge the buyer a storage charge of £1.00 + VAT at the current rate per lot per day. (c) Ownership of the lot purchased shall not pass to the buyer until he has paid to the Auctioneer the total sum due. 6. (a) The seller shall be entitled to place a reserve on any lot and the Auctioneer shall have the right to bid on behalf of the seller for any lot on which a reserve has been placed. A seller may not bid on any lot on which a reserve has been placed. (b) Where any lot fails to sell, the Auctioneer shall notify the seller accordingly. The seller shall make arrangements either to re-offer the lot for sale or to collect the lot and may be asked to pay a commission not exceeding 50% of the selling commission and any special expenses incurred in cataloguing the lot. (c) If such arrangements are not made within seven days of the notification the Auctioneer is empowered to sell the lot by auction or by private treaty at not less than the reserve price and to receive from the seller the normal selling commission and special expenses.

7. Any representation or statement by the Auctioneer in any catalogue, brochure or advertisement of forthcoming sales as to authorship, attribution, genuineness, origin, date, age, provenance, condition or estimated selling price is a statement of opinion only. Every person interested should exercise and rely on his own judgement as to such matters and neither the Auctioneer nor his servants or agents are responsible for the correctness of such opinions. No warranty whatsoever is given by the Auctioneer or the seller in respect of any lot and any express or implied warranties are hereby excluded. 8. (a) Notwithstanding any other terms of these conditions, if within fourteen days of the sale the Auctioneer has received from the buyer of any lot notice in writing that in his view the lot is a deliberate forgery and within fourteen days after such notification the buyer returns the same to the Auctioneer in the same condition as at the time of the sale and satisfies the Auctioneer that considered in the light of the entry in the catalogue the lot is a deliberate forgery then the sale of the lot will be rescinded and the purchase price of the same refunded. "A deliberate forgery" means a lot made with intention to deceive. (b) A buyer's claim under this condition shall be limited to any amount paid to the Auctioneer for the lot and for the purpose of this condition the buyer shall be the person to whom the original invoice was made out by the Auctioneer. 9. Lots may be removed during the sale after full settlement in accordance with 4(d) hereof. 10. All goods delivered to the Auctioneer's premises will be deemed to be delivered for sale by auction unless otherwise stated in writing and will be catalogued and sold at the Auctioneer's discretion and accepted by the Auctioneer subject to all these conditions. In the case of miscellaneous books, the Auctioneer reserves the right to extract and dispose of books that, in the opinion of the Auctioneer at his absolute discretion, have no saleable value and, therefore, might detract from the saleability of the rest of the lot and the Auctioneer shall incur no liability to the seller, in respect of the books disposed of. By delivering the goods to theAuctioneer for inclusion in his auction sales each seller acknowledges that he/she accepts and agrees to all the conditions. 11. (a) Unless otherwise instructed in writing all goods on the Auctioneer's premises and in their custody will be held insured against the risks of fire, burglary, water damage and accidental breakage or damage. The value of the goods so covered will be the hammer price, or in the case of unsold lots the lower estimate, or in the case of loss or damage prior to the sale that which the specialised staff of the Auctioneer shall in their absolute discretion estimate to be the auction value of such goods. (b) The Auctioneer shall not be responsible for damage to or the loss, theft, or destruction of any goods not so insured because of the owner’s written instructions. 12. The Auctioneer shall remit the proceeds of the sale to the seller thirty days after the day of the auction provided that the Auctioneer has received the total sum due from the buyer. In all other cases the Auctioneer will remit the proceeds of the sale to the seller within seven days of the receipt by the Auctioneer of the total sum due. The Auctioneer will not be deemed to have received the total sum due until after any cheque delivered by the buyer has been cleared. In the event of the Auctioneer exercising his right to rescind the sale his obligation to the seller hereunder lapses. 13. In the case of the seller withdrawing instructions to the Auctioneer to sell any lot or lots, the Auctioneer may charge a fee of 12.5% of the Auctioneer's middle estimate of the auction price of the lot withdrawn together with Value Added Tax thereon and any expenses incurred in respect of the lot or lots. 14. The Auctioneer’s current standard notices and information (i.e. Collation and Amendments) will apply to any contract with the Auctioneer as if incorporated herein. 15. These conditions shall be governed by and construed in accordance with English Law.
