Sabin 13486. Inscribed by Thomas Clarkson: ‘To William Smith Esq. M.P. A Fellow Labourer in the great Cause of The Abolition of the Slave-Trade this work is affectionately presented by the Author, London May. 2. 1808’. William Smith (1756-1835), son of a grocer and maternal grandfather of Florence Nightingale, was one of the first to campaign for the abolition of the slave trade. In June 1786 Thomas Clarkson (1760-1846) published his powerful indictment of the slave trade, ‘Essay on the Slavery and Commerce of the Human Species, Particularly the African’. William Smith argued that the book was a turning-point for the slave trade abolition movement and made the case “unanswerably, and I should have thought, irresistibly”, and he became a supporter of the ‘Society for the Abolition of the Slave Trade’, an organisation established by Clarkson, amongst others. In 1790 William Smith supported William Wilberforce who had taken on the cause of abolition in 1787 after reading the evidence that Thomas Clarkson had amassed against the trade, and in 1807 Smith published a pamphlet entitled ‘A Letter to William Wilberforce’ (1807), in which he convincingly summarised the arguments in favour of abolition. Once the trade had been outlawed, he turned his attention to freeing those who were already slaves. In 1823 he helped found the ‘London Society for the Abolition of Slavery in our Colonies’, thereby launching the next phase of the campaign to eradicate slavery completely. (2) £400-600

Fredrich Engels, co-writer of ‘The Communist Party Manifesto’ in 1848, wrote in his ‘Conditions of the Working Class in England’ in 1844: “I have seen human degradation in some of its worst phases, both in England and abroad, but I can advisedly say, that I did not believe, until I visited the wynds of Glasgow, that so large an amount of filth, crime, misery, and disease existed in one spot in any civilised country. The wynds consist of long lanes, so narrow that a cart could with difficulty pass along them; out of these open the ‘closes’, which are courts about fifteen or twenty feet square, round which the houses, mostly three or four storeys high, are built. These places are generally, as regards dirt, damp, and decay, such as no person of common humanity would stable his horse in.” (1) £2000-3000

This is an example of the slightly smaller edition of Gill’s 1913 map which is assumed to have been published to help the promotion of the 1924 British Empire Exhibition that was held at Wembley between April and October of that year. If you look closely in the top left hand corner you can see a sign saying:- ‘On To Wembley’ and an art deco lion. Neither of which appear on the 1913 edition. The map would have been well known and much loved by Londoners and to re-use it to help advertise and promote the exhibition was probably a sound piece of advertising and publicity. The map remains highly stylised and whimsical, and 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 of the genre of decorative map making. Elizabeth Burdon.

Not listed in Laor.This is the only map known to have been produced by Cole and is found in the second edition (1572) of the ‘Bishop’s Bible. Strangely, not all copies contain the map and it is not found in any of the numerous later editions. The map is similar to Arbaham Ortelius’s map of 1570, but on Cole’s map the place names have been changed to English and Cole adds little vignette depictions of bible scenes and stories. The long descriptive title in the cartouche and Lord Burghley’s coat of arms also help distinguish the map from the example by Ortelius. It has been suggested that this map was engraved on silver. This is not as fanciful as it sounds. Cole was engraver to the Royal Mint and as such would have have had access to silver and there are records of other maps - of high significance or importance - being engraved on silver.

This print was published in the Speculum Romanae Magnificentiae (The Mirror of Roman Magnificence) Published and produced by Antonio Salamanca and Antonio Lafreri. The prints of the architecture and views of the city of Rome could be purchased individually or in albums. When Lafreri died, the copper plates were divided beween Claudio and Stefano Duchetti (who took the large majority) and several other smaller publishers. It is the more standardized and uniform production of the Speculum by the Duchetti family which proved the most popular. Lafreri’s name is synonymous with the publication of the magnificent composite atlases produced in the important trading centres of Rome and Venice. Comprising of maps by various cartographers they epitomise the Italian domination of the world of cartography before the emergence of Ortelius’s Theatrum Orbis Terrarum which was published in Antwerp in 1570 and which marked the beginning of Dutch cartographic supremacy.

One of Byron’s dearest friends, statesman John Hobhouse was described by the poet in his dedication to the fourth canto of ‘Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage’ as “a friend often tried and never found wanting”. It was Hobhouse who persuaded a reluctant Byron to sit for eminent sculptor Bertel Thorvaldsen, as Byron’s words testify: “I would not pay the price of a Thorwaldsen for any human head and shoulders..... if asked - why then I sate for my own - answer - that it was at the request particular of J.C. Hobhouse Esqre. - and for no one else”. The sittings took place in Rome in April and May 1817, and the original is now in the Thorvaldsen Museum in Copenhagan. The latter also holds one of the letters of introduction referred to here, that to Thorvaldsen, dated September 1820, in which Hobhouse writes: “I beg leave to introduce to your favourable attentions Mr Douglas Strutt an English gentleman who proposes passing the winter at Rome”, going on to say “Mr Strutt is charged with the commission of asking you what has become of the inimitable bust of Lord Byron which has been some time finished in your hands & which I was in hopes would have arrived in England more than a year ago. I have repeatedly heard from Lord Byron on the subject & he has assured me that the bust was on its road to this country. I am extremely eager to be possessed of so great a treasure.” (1) £100-150

Wise, Byron, II, pp.111-112. Provenance: Mary, Countess of Lovelace (1848-1941), prior to 1922; given to John C. Fox of Goring on Thames by Countess Lovelace, 14 September 1922; passed to Miss Elsie Fox by John C. Fox; given to C. Draper by Miss Elsie Fox, 1961. Mary Caroline, Countess of Lovelace, daughter of the Rt. Hon. James StuartWortley, married Ralph Gordon Noel Milbanke, the 2nd Earl of Lovelace in 1880, who was the third child of William King-Noel, 1st Earl of Lovelace and his wife, Ada Lovelace, the only legitimate daughter of Lord Byron. Byron scholar Sir John Charles Fox discussed the separation of Lord and Lady Byron in his book ‘The Byron Mystery’, published in 1924. Of ‘Lady Noel Byron and the Leighs’ Wise states “I suppose this must be the most hopelessly unobtainable book in the whole series of Byroniana, surpassing in rarity even Lord Broughton’s ‘Contemporary Account of the Separation of Lord and Lady Byron’, privately printed in 1870, and the first edition of Lady Byron’s ‘Remarks’”. Wise goes on to assert that of the thirty-six copies printed only a few were distributed, and “the larger proportion of the issue was destroyed”. (1) £1500-2000

INFORMATION FOR BUYERS AFTER THE AUCTION Online results If you weren’t present or able to follow the auction live, you can find results for the sale on our website shortly after the sale has ended. Payment The price you pay is the amount at which the auctioneer’s hammer falls (the hammer price), plus a buyer’s premium (a percentage of the final hammer price) and vat where applicable. You will be issued with an invoice made out to the name and address provided on your registration form. Please note successful bids made via the-saleroom.com cannot be invoiced or paid for until the day after an auction. A live bidding fee of 3% + vat will be added to your invoice.

METHODS OF PAYMENT Cheque Cheques will only be accepted on the day of the sale by prior arrangement (please contact our office for further information). Cheques by post will be accepted but a period of 5 working days will be required for the cheque to clear before purchases can be collected or posted. Cash Payments can be made at the Cashier’s Office, either during or after the sale. Debit Card There is no additional charge for purchases made with these cards. Debit cards drawn on an overseas bank, however, will be subject to a 2% surcharge. Credit Cards Visa and Mastercard are accepted, a 2% surcharge will apply. It is a good idea to let your card provider know in advance if you are intending to buy something. This can help cut down the time we need to seek authority when you come to pay.

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.
