The present manuscript work appears to be a transcript of texts taken from Elphinstone’s Account of the Kingdom of Caubul, first published in 1815, but reissued in its third edition in 1838, and John William Kaye’s History of the War in Afghanistan, first published in 2 volumes in 1851. Whether or not the present work is in the hand of Major Outram is open to debate. Outram was appointed as aide-de-camp to Sir John Keane in 1838 on the outbreak of the First Afghan War, where he displayed gallantry at Ghuznee. He was promoted to Major in 1839, became political agent in Lower Scinde, and subsequently Upper Scinde, and heroically defended the Hyderabad residents against 8000 Beluchis. His Rough Notes of the Campaign in Sinde and Afghanistan in 1838-39, was first published in Bombay in 1840. (1) £200-300

A good, unsophisticated copy of the first English edition. First published in Philadelphia in two octavo volumes in the same year as the present edition, this is the first British and typographically superior first quarto edition of the ‘definitive account of the most important exploration of the North American continent’ (Wagner-Camp). Funded by Congress, this was effectively the first exploration officially sponsored by the Federal Government of the United States. The expedition set out from St Louis in May 1804 and covered some eight thousand miles across the continent over two and a half years, establishing a route to the mouth of the Columbia River across the Rocky Mountains. The celebrated large folding map is an accurate copy of Clark’s manuscript and considered the best cartographic representation of the entire northwestern quadrant of what is now the United States. The publication of the official account of the expedition took nearly ten years and was beset by numerous setbacks including the tragic death in 1809 of Lewis by murder or suicide. Provenance: While handwriting comparison with letters held by the Library of Congress has been inconclusive the ownership signature may be that of Andrew Moore (1752-1821), an American lawyer and politician from Lexington, Virginia. In 1776, he was commissioned a 1st Lieutenant in the 9th Virginia Regiment and rose to the rank of Captain in the Continental Army, seeing action at Saratoga. After the war he was eventually commissioned a Major General in the Virginia militia in 1803. He was a delegate to the Virginia Convention that ratified the United States Constitution in 1788. He was a member of Virginia legislature 1789 -1791 and 1799-1800. He represented Virginia in both the US House (1789-97, 1804) and the US Senate (1804-1809). In 1810 he was appointed marshal of the district of Virginia, which office he held until his death. (1) £5000-8000

70 Greenough (George Bellus). A Physical and Geological Map of England & Wales... (on the basis of the original Map of Wm. Smith 1815), Revised and Improved under the Superintendence of a Committee of the Geological Society of London, from the Maps of the Geological Survey of Great Britain, 1836-63 and Maps and Documents contributed by Sir R.J. Murchison, Professor Phillips, Joseph Prestwich, R. Godwin Austen, and others, Published by the Geological Society, July 1865 [but circa 1877], comprising four hand-coloured engraved sheets (on J. Whatman watermarked paper dated 1877) each sectionalised on linen, calligraphic title and table of explanation, few minor spots but generally very clean, marbled endpapers, sheet size of each approximately 975 x 850mm, total size approximately 1950 x 1700mm Scarce. This is the third state of Grennough’s map and the first to acknowledge William Smith. Greenough was one of the founding members of the Geological Society of London, and it’s first president until 1811. ‘In 1808 he first sketched the boundary-lines of the various strata in England and Wales, and in 1810 he travelled over a great part of the country for the purpose of mapping it. At the request of the Geological Society he then, with the help of Conybeare, Buckland, and Henry Warburton, coloured a large scale-map drawn by Webster, and in 1820 published it in six sheets’ (DNB). It is understood that Greenough reproduced William Smith’s geological map of 1815, and this possibly drove Smith into debtors’ prison as a consequence. Published a decade after Greenough’s death, this edition was produced by the Geological Society under a committee that included William Smith’s nephew, the Professor of Geology in Oxford, John Phillips. This particular edition of the map was the first to acknowledge its connection with Smith in its title. (4) £2000-3000

THE STUDIO OF WILLIAM GARY SAMUEL (1929-2015) All lots unframed unless otherwise stated William Gary Samuel – known as Gary to his friends or as “Joker” to his siblings, was born in Hay-on-Wye near Hereford on 25 May 1929. Although born with only one arm, he never let this disability hamper him. He was educated at Woolhope Village School, Herefordshire and in 1949 studied art and design at Hereford School of Art before going on to Saltley College, Birmingham, to undertake teacher training in 1953. He relocated to Swindon, Wiltshire, in 1955 to pursue a career in art, and in 1973 became head of Swindon School of Art & Design. Ranging from the 1950s to the early years of the present century, his early work shows the influence of British Neo-Romantic painting, while his later landscapes reflect his admiration for the Impressionists and the work of JMW Turner. Most prolific during the 1980s and 1990s, he accepted many commissions, including portraits, notably of HRH Prince Charles. This collection represents the complete output of W.G.

246* Computer. Rare early “DCE Microcomputer System” home computer by DAI, 1976, from the Belgian company Data Applications International (DAI), unit has removable DCEbus cards (dated 1976) and a socket for inserting an EPROM, powered by normal 230V mains, likely to be a prototype / development unit used during the design of the first DAI production unit or an early modular unit sold to enthusiasts, labelled underneath PSM-EBS/F 0F02067, appears to power up fine but is untested beyond this, width 235mm, depth 300mm, height 135mm, sold as seen, not subject to return Rumour has it that Texas-Instruments approached Data Applications International (DAI) in the mid 1970's to design a personal computer with sound, graphics and colours for the European market, using Texas-Instruments components. However, Texas-Instruments then changed their mind mid-project and decided to market their own personal computer (the TI-99/4) in Europe so the "DAI" project was cancelled. The Belgian company then decided to market the project under their own brand and the DAI production version came to market in 1980. It had many pioneering features such as high resolution colour graphics, a maths co-processor, and a precompiling BASIC interpreter. Though receiving critical acclaim from computer enthusiasts at the time, the DAI computer never became a commercial success due to its high retail price and poor marketing. In 1982, the DAI system was chosen for a television course on computers in the Netherlands, instead of the Texas-Instruments competitor. In response, Texas-Instruments stopped selling EPROMs to DAI, causing severe production problems at DAI and almost certainly the reason for the demise of the company in 1983. (1) £200-300

The earliest available printing of this iconic catalogue, the first two of the 250 copies printed being retained by the Royal Family, and with the addition of ephemeral items associated with the sale. Signed by Diana just weeks before her death, this sumptuous catalogue was produced to accompany the sensational sale of 79 dresses which were surplus to the Princess’s requirements. The mostly elaborately embellished formal gowns and dresses had been part of her working wardrobe during her marriage, and the idea to sell them for charity came from her eldest son, Prince William. The auction in New York was one of the biggest social events of the year, raising $3.26 million for various AIDS and healthrelated charities. The highlight of the sale was Princess Diana’s off-the shoulder, midnight-blue velvet dress designed by Victor Edelstein, famously worn during a dance with John Travolta at the White House in 1985, which fetched $222,500.

In a letter circulated to members of the ACP he wrote: ‘Mr Winston Churchill has pointed out the duty laid upon each and all is to strive to become ‘good Europeans’. This demands an acquaintance and contact with our fellow Europeans closer than we as people have sought or have been sought from us in the past’.

In September 1941 Mary joined the Auxiliary Territorial Service and served in one of the new ‘mixed’ anti-aircraft batteries and the letter refers to an illness she had then. (1) £1000-1500

Provenance: The family of American cookery writer Eliza Leslie (1787-1858); by descent to Thomas L. Twidell (1899-1994), great grandson of Charles Robert Leslie, brother of Eliza; bequeathed to Robin Hamlyn (1947-2016), curator at Tate Britian. A highly accomplished and meticulous contemporary manuscript copy of a printed book, published by John Marshall, which itself is rare. This manuscript is believed to be by cookery writer Eliza Leslie, executed for the benefit of her four younger siblings, two of whom, Charles Robert and Anna, became artists. Although best known for her books on cookery and etiquette, Eliza was also a prolific writer of fiction and non fiction for children and adults. Great nephew of Eliza, Thomas L. Twiddel, was an authority on the Leslie family, and he came to know Robin Hamyln when the latter embarked on a phd thesis on Eliza Leslie. The exact date of the first printing of ‘The Frisking, Barking Lady’s Lap-Dog’ is uncertain, and curiously our manuscript version lists two dates on the title-page, 1808 and 1818. Gumuchian lists the earliest known copy of 1817 (3557). We sold a copy with an 1818 watermark in 2014; it is the only copy we have seen at auction, and included an additional leaf of directions for play, not reproduced in the manuscript. The Osborne Collection has no listing for this title, COPAC records just a single copy of the 1822 edition only (Opie Collection), OCLC locates one 1819 copy (Indiana University and College of William & Mary), and the Pierpont Morgan Library has a copy watermarked 1830, printed (by assignment of E. Marshall) by D. Carvalho. A game of memory in the form of an accumulative rhyme, similar to ‘The House That Jack Built’ (1) £500-800

He must have been made before 1934 because in that year the Army & Navy Co-operative Society changed its name to the Army & Navy Stores. Rocking horses made by Frederick Henry Ayres were sold by a number of toy shops and department stores around the country, including Harrods, Hamleys, and Selfridges, as well as the Army & Navy Stores. Whilst some horses carried the Ayres name stamp or plaque, many did not, but the beauty and quality of the Ayres horses, as well as their many distinctive features means that they are relatively easy to identify. They are generally considered the ‘Rolls Royce’ of rocking horses and are particularly known for their generous dimensions, well-proportioned bodies, delicately carved legs and exquisitely detailed heads. Examples such as this, which were designed to have removable tack, are particularly sought after. The delicate lower jaws are quite often missing or replaced as a result of enthusiastic children pulling too hard on the reins. Dobbin is in good unrestored condition, and is looking for new pastures. (See Patricia Mullins, The Rocking Horse. A History of Moving Horses, New Cavendish Books, 1992, pages 68-69.) (1) £400-600

Her love of drawing was apparent from an early age. She went to the Central School of Art, where she met fellowartist John Morton-Sale, whom she married in 1924. Although their work is quite distinct they were an inspiration to each other. Together they founded the Parnassus Gallery, well-known for outstanding reproductions of great and lesser-known works of art. Isobel’s work was exhibited from 1979 to 1983 at the Royal Society of Portrait Painters, and a retrospective exhibition of paintings by both John and Isobel was held at the Maas Gallery, in London, in 1984. Her work is characterised by a distinct delicacy of style and sensitivity of colour, and although she had an acuteness of observation, a sense of enchantment in her paintings pervades the realism of the captured moment.

THE DAVID LANSLEY COLLECTION OF LEWIS CARROLL I had been intrigued by Lewis Carroll from my early twenties when I read my mother's copy of Alice's Adventures, a Collin's edition and also Pudney's Lewis Carroll and His World many years previously and found the Victorian world and his Wonderland an intoxicating parallel. The idea of book collecting came to me one day in Bristol in 1991 when the weekly copy of Pulse arrived and there was an article about a Lewis Carroll collector with a picture of him and a splendid stack of uniform editions of the red cloth 6/- Alice. As a boy I enjoyed collecting things, from small animals to stamps. People often wonder about collectors – is it the subject or is it the process that is their passion? For me it began then, with a moment of fusion, and it was very powerful. After one or two purchases- a miniature edition of the Snark and a sixteenth thousand of Alice, I had the hang of it and one Sunday, while talking with a fellow tenor in the choir, mentioned my new hobby. He said that at home he had a copy of Tom Brown's School Days that he had bought for £1 in the corn market book stall. "Well done!" I said. Yes, he replied "and what's more it is inscribed by Lewis Carroll to his brother, and if you can find me another copy with the same illustrations you can have it." And I did, within a week. The next 25 years saw the collection expanding with many wonderful finds. When I could manage I also attended Lewis Carroll society events, wrote some articles for the Society, and also with the Society my book "Wilfred Dodgson of Shropshire: Land Agent and Brother of Lewis Carroll." I have come to believe that collecting has a natural history, that it is a process with a beginning and end. I was advised by a sage and experienced collector in the early days that collecting was a disease and there was no cure. With hindsight now I agree with him except that I believe a resolution can occur without the need for a cure. An American collector of Carroll explained that he was simply "full", a nice gastronomic analogy. I was always a collector of what I considered rare or unusual and eventually this led to resolution because the items that remained desirable to me were either priced far above my means or came on to the market too infrequently to sustain vigilance. Now these beloved objects will be dispersed and I hope become part of other collecting trajectories and treasured all over again. David Lansley, November 2017

THE BOOKER PRIZE COLLECTION OF BRUCE HOWARD Bruce Howard built his collection over a period of 30 years. His passion for the award led to the establishment of Oak Tree Fine Press a privately owned publishing company based in Oxfordshire, England. Originally a South African businessman he worked for many years managing various charitable projects and developing fundraising programmes for children left destitute by HIV/AIDS in southern Africa. In the course of his fundraising, he built up a relationship with the author John Coetzee, Nobel Laureate and double Booker Prize winner who came up with the idea of publishing books including The First Chapter Series (a limited-edition series that showcases the opening sequences of Booker Prize winning novels) as a way of assisting in these efforts. He was instrumental in introducing him to many authors who would otherwise been difficult to access. More details can be found at www.oaktreefinepress.com. Much of the provenance within the collection originates from these endeavours. 680 Booker Prize Collection. A comprehensive and complete private collection of first editions of all Winning and Shortlisted Booker Prize Novels for the years 1969 to 2013, comprising 47 Winners (including two Joint Winners), of these 43 are signed (plus autograph of Bernice Rubens loosely inserted for 1970; missing only signed copies for 1973, 1977 and 1985), together with Proof Copies of 41 of these Winners (22 signed) and 39 1st US editions (19 signed), plus all 214 first editions of the Shortlisted novels (142 signed), plus an additional 110 copies (70 signed), mostly 1st US editions, proof and other copies of these shortlisted books, all the books as issued and complete with dust jackets where required, wraparounds present for first edition winners for 1971, 1974 (both), 1975 and 1981, and for four shortlisted first editions, some later books published in paperback only and the proof copies as issued, usually original wrappers, the 41 winning novel proof copies housed with the accompanying true first edition in purpose-made twin slipcases, a total of 450 books, of which 296 are author signed, the condition generally very good to near fine, the proof copies in more variable condition, mostly 8vo This superlative Booker Prize collection is most likely unique and unrivalled, being far more comprehensive than any similar collection identified. Stanley Middleton's Holiday is often believed to be the scarcest winner, (along with Bernice Rubens' The Elected Member), and the copy here found not only comes in fine condition but with the rare wraparound and a signed quotation from the author to the title-page. Other noted rarities found within the collection include Gordon M. Williams' From Scenes Like These, Terence Wheeler's The Conjunction (signed) and Elizabeth Mavor's The Green Equinox, a signed and inscribed simultaneous paperback edition. Due to Bruce's enthusiasm and contacts developed through his publishing house he was able to obtain autographs from authors that might otherwise be difficult to obtain. At one signing where Bruce presented Salman Rushdie with a proof copy of his Booker Prize winning book Midnight's Children the author exclaimed: "Where did you get this?!" before duly signing. The collection covers the Booker Prize (now known as the Man Booker Prize) from its inaugural event in 1969 through to 2013, the last year in which only Commonwealth, Irish, South African and Zimbabwean citizens were eligible to receive the prize. Lots 681-686 also come from the library of Bruce Howard and demonstrate a more moderated bibliomania for book prize collecting! Indeed, it was his special enthusiasm for the Booker Prize which inspired him to create and publish The First Chapter Series of books, a set of which is offered here as lot 682. (450) ÂŁ40000-60000

As Brooke had not been to France it seems unlikely that these words are in his hand, unless he was writing down this information that had been given to him by someone else. (1) £200-300

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.

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.
