31 Chatelain (Jean Baptiste Claude). [Fifty Views of Villages &c. Drawn by the celebrated M. Chatelaine, from the most agreeable Prospects near London], published Robert Sayer, circa 1775, lacking title, fifty uncoloured engraved views, a few leaves trimmed within lower platemark, stab sewn to inner margin, contemporary blue paper wrappers, neatly rebacked paper spine, binding measures 95 x 160mm Rare. The work consists of small views of churches and villages that surrounded early Georgian London; these include, among others, Chelsea, Battersea, Highgate, Hampstead, Barnes, Kew, and St Pancras. The views were the work of the topographical draughtsman Jean Chatelain (17101758), and engraved by James Roberts (1725-1799), most probably Henry’s brother. The set was first published by Henry Roberts in around 1750 under the title: ‘Fifty small original, and elegant views of the most splendid churches, villages, rural prospects. and masterly pieces of architecture, adjacent to London’. The present example can be dated to around 1775 as eight of the views bear the imprint of Robert Sayer. Sayer and his business partner John Bennett had acquired the plates sometime before 1775, as they appear in their sales catalogue of that year under the title: ’Fifty Views of Villages, &c. from the most agreeable Prospects near London,drawn by the celebrated M. Chatelain, may be had in the following Numbers, for the Amusement of Youth in drawing after Nature. Priced 6d. each’. The catalogue divides the views into eight numbered sections: the first three containing views of villages to the south and west; numbers 4 and 5 villages to the west and north; 6 and 7 north and east; and 8 the south; with the view at the beginning of each section bearing the imprint of Robert Sayer. We are only able to trace four complete examples, which bear the Sayer imprint: The New York Historical Society; the Folger Shakespeare Library; and the Yale Institute of British Art. The present example, without the title page - which would appear to never have been bound in with the present set - conforms to the example in the British Library; both the Folger, and N.Y.H.S. example bear a printed title page; with the Yale example bearing a title in manuscript. Collation:- 1. The South East View of Chelsea Church (imprint of R. Sayer - Fleet Street). 2. The North East View of Chelsea Hospital. 3. The North View of Battersea. 4. The South West View of Battersea Church. 5. The East View of Wandsworth. 6. The South West View of Wandsworth Church. 7. The South View of Chiswick. (imprint of R.

These highly decorative examples of Dutch cartography combined with the advances in geographical knowledge made these maps a valued commodity on both the domestic and international market.That many of these maps were sold as separate sheets, and/or were inserted into composite-style atlases of the period, accounts for their rarity today. This example was probably engraved in Venice, perhaps by the little known publisher Stefano Scolari. The map is based upon Jodocus Hondius’s map initially published in 1623. (1) £1500-2000

After the partnership broke up, each member took the plates that they engraved with them, the majority of which were engraved by Senex, and were re-issued in his English Atlas from 1714. In 1713, Wildey acquired the remainder of Price’s stock and began to issue them with his own imprint and in a further ill-fated partnership with Timothy Brandreth. The partnership was not a commercial success and later the same year, Willdey was advertising the remaining stock of the maps at a heavily discounted price.This particular example bears a dedication by Charles Price to Earl John Poulett, who was Lord Steward between 1711-1714. We have been unable to trace another example which bears the dedication. (1) £150-250

74 Asia. Hondius (Jodocus), Asia recens summa cura demeata Auctore Iud. Hondio, originally published Amsterdam, but this example is a pirated Italian edition, possibly printed in Venice, circa 1642, uncoloured engraved carte-a-figure map on two conjoined sheets, ten costumed figures to the vertical margins, twelve oval vignettes of principal cities to the horizontal margins, old folds, sparse near contemporary ink marginalia, 440 x 560mm, no text on verso An unrecorded Italian pirated copy of Hondius’s map, probably engraved in Venice, perhaps by the little known publisher Stefano Scolari. The paper used in the printing bears the water mark of an anchor in a circle, surmounted by a six pointed star (Heawood 8?) which indicates the paper to be Italian and of the period. The map appeared together with six other similar examples at a Sothebys auction, several of which bore the date 1642, and had numerous vignette views to the borders reversed. On the map of Europe, the Tower of London appears on the left rather than the right of the image, however, this error is not present on the views of Venice, Rome and Constantinople. The map is based on an earlier work by Jodocus Hondius published in 1623.The 1623 printing formed part of a set of maps of the four continents of which Africa and Asia are dated 1623. The title of the Asia map appears in the upper left in a cartouche which is a mirror image of that on Jodocus Hondiuss 1619 map. The imprint is in the cartouche in the upper right. Later states of the map bear the imprint of Johannes Janssonius - as in the present example. (1) £1500-2000

To the residents of the Orange River Colony. Whereas following a proclamation issued on 1st June 1900 that all persons bearing arms against Her Majesty in the Orange River Colony would be regarded as rebels, and whereas it was ordered that all arms and ammunition should be surrendered; Now therefore I, Frederick Sleigh, Baron Roberts of Kandahar..., published Bloemfontein, 1900, broadsheet poster, old folds with fraying, some chipping and fraying to margins with slight loss, professionally restored, slight spotting, backed with archival tissue, on the verso is a contemporary note in blue pencil ‘taken out of a deserted Boer farm’, 630 x 505mm, offered with Herfst (J.J.),Post Kaart van den Oranje Vrijstaat, published W.A.Wright, Bloemfontein, circa 1900, lithographic map, old folds with fraying and slight loss, margins and old folds strengthened on verso, 400 x 450mm

£100-150

This proclamation was one of many issued during the Boer Wars and this example was published during the second phase of the second Boer War, two days before Roberts considered the war over and England victorious. History proved him to be overly optimistic as a vicious guerilla war continued for another two years (the third phase). The Orange Free State had been annexed on May 28th 1900 and renamed the Orange River Colony. The stipulations of the proclamation can be seen as a prelude to Kitchener’s ‘scorched earth’ policy which was ruthlessly activated during phase three. (2) £200-400

Blaeu (Johannes), Imperii Sinarum nova Descriptio, published J.Covens & C.Mortier, Amsterdam, circa 1710, engraved map with contemporary outline colouring, central fold runs horizontally, 465 x 595mm A map from Blaeu’s Atlas Sinensis, but a later issue by Covens & Mortier. This map covers China, Korea and Japan. Korea is correctly shown as a peninsula and not an island, and China is very accurately depicted -the Great Wall is visible in the north. This is the first European map to show Ezo as an island in Japan. The title cartouche is surrounded by figures in traditional dress.The Atlas Sinensis was the fruit of a unique collaboration between Father Martinus Martini, the Jesuit Superior of Hangchow, and the Amsterdam cartographer, Johannes Blaeu. Father Martino Martini (1614-1661), was a Jesuit missionary who began to compile his own maps based on earlier Chinese sources, including an 1312 manuscript atlas by Chu-Ssu-pên. He was taken prisoner by the Dutch in 1654 and sent to Amsterdam. He used the journey to translate Chu-Ssu-pêns work,with additions and revisions from a 1555 printed atlas by Lo Hongxian. When he arrived, Martini took his work to Johannes Blaeu, and persuaded him to postpone his planned town book of Italy in order to engrave and publish Martinis maps instead. The accompanying text was Martinis personal accountof the decade he had spent travelling in China. The volume of seventeen maps was completed and published in 1655, and marketed as the sixth volume of Blaeu’s Atlas Novus. (1) £200-300

This fascinating map of the Holy Land is unusually focused on the lives of early Christian anchorites. These ascetics would retreat into the deserts of Egypt and Syria to remove themselves from human society, and then choose a location to spend the rest of their lives in solitary devotion. The map is covered with small detailed vignettes with accompanying inscriptions of their lives. It covers the Middle East from Libya to Syria, and is oriented to the northwest. Near Antioch stands the pillar of Saint Simeon Stylites, who spent thirty-six years in solitary prayer on the top. Next to Tabenna in the upper Nile region Saint Pachomius sits facing a semicircle of other hermits. He had been inspired to go there to found a lavra, an early form of monastery for those not suited to a solitary ascetic life. Further down the Nile the journeys of Saint Helena of Constantinople are recorded. The mother of the Emperor Constantine was sent by her son to visit the Holy Places in Palestine to collect relics, and founded several churches and monasteries including the Church of the Nativity. The ships sailing across the Mediterranean record the legend of Hilarion, an anchorite who was forced to retire to Cyprus after his original cell near Gaza became a tourist destination. The inscription tells of how he helped to repel a pirate attack on the fort which was built near the site of his new home on Cyprus. On the left shore of the Red Sea is the voyage of Saint Anthony the Great to find Saint Paul of Thebes, after having a dream that Paul was a better hermit than he. The map shows his encounters with a centaur and satyr, his eventual meeting with Paul and Pauls death soon after, with the two lions who helped to dig his grave.On the right of the map in Syria the story of Saint Malchus is shown, an enslaved man who refused to consummate the marriage forced on him incaptivity to preserve his vow of chastity. He and his wife eventually escaped using inflated goatskins as a raft and were saved by a lioness who killed their pursuers, and were both eventually able to retire to monastic houses. Lower down, in the desert by the River Jordan, is the story of Saint Mary of Egypt, a sexually active young woman who was barred from entering the Church of the Holy Speulchre by an invisible force, which only ceased after she repented and promised to live in the desert as penitence for her earlier sins. She was met in the desert by Saint Zosimas of Palestine, who lent her his mantle and gave her Holy Communion, which she walked across the river to obtain. E.Laor. Maps of the Holy Land, no.496.

The map appeared together with six other similar examples at a Sothebys auction, several of which bore the date 1642, and had numerous vignette views to the borders reversed, so that the Tower of London appeared on the left rather than the right of the image, however, this error is not present on the views of Venice, Rome and Constantinople.The map is based upon Hondius’s map of Europe published in 1623. The title appears in the Atlantic Ocean in a cartouche flanked by two putti and crowned by a clock. The imprint appears in a cartouche to the upper right hand corner. The town views to the upper and lower border are based upon Hondius’s 1619 map of Europe, and the costumed figures in the side borders upon Blaeu’s 1617 map of Europe. The geographical content is based upon the previous wall maps, which were in turn a reduction of Blaeu’s wall map of Europe. Not recorded in Schilder’s Monumenta Cartographica vol. VI.

The castle had nine handoperated fire engines but there was only sufficient water for one of them so very little was achieved and the flames spread rapidly. The fire-officer in charge then called the London Fire Engine Establishment and as there was by this time a large crowd, orders were given that no-one should be allowed to approach the Tower too closely. Sadly this order was obeyed to the letter and the fireman were kept away until it was too late to prevent the destruction of the tower. (1) £100-150

The trade with Britain seems to have been particularly important and was largely based upon the sale of pirate versions of books and prints that were originally published in London. This was possible because home rule meant that Irish publishers were exempt from legislation governing copyright over printed material in England, while lower labour costs and taxes on paper, allowed Irish publishers to offer goods at a fraction of their London competitors. William MaCleary was one of the foremost print dealers, based in Dublin and with premises on the fashionable Nassau street, he produced a great many caricatures which had the original artist and publisher’s names removed and were issued with just MaCleary’s name below the image. This advantageous trading position made Dublin a thriving centre for print making and publishing and by 1801 Dublin was home to a substantial number of businesses dealing in the production and and sale of printed goods. Wilson’s Dublin Directory for 1801 contains entries for 59 printers, publishers and engravers, 39 booksellers, 9 map and printsellers, as well as 9 other businesses that sold products such as inks, paint, copperplates and paper which could be used in the printing process.

To the left, the artist has labelled the Maidens Tower as Tour de Leandres, referring to the legend of Leander, who swam the Hellespont to see his lover Hero every night, which some confused with the Bosphorus. It focuses on the Topkapi Palace, and the element of Ottoman culture of most interest to European observers, the harem, or seraglio.The harem was a source of some fascination, and much speculation. The artist has labelled almost half the palace as Appartamens des femmes en Grand Seigneur, or the womens quarters.The view was probably produced during one of the intermittent conflicts between the Ottoman Empire and European powers over the eighteenth century.

John Varley records how Blake came to depict the strange apparition (pp.54/55): ‘This spirit visited his imagination in such a figure as he never anticipated in an insect. As I was anxious to make the most correct investigation in my power, of the truth of these visions, on hearing of this spiritual apparition of a Flea, I asked him if he could draw for me the resemblance of what he saw: he instantly said, “I see him now before me.” I therefore gave him paper and a pencil, with which he drew the portrait... I felt convinced by his mode of proceeding, that he had a real image before him, for he left off, and began on another part of the paper, to make a separate drawing of the mouth of the Flea, which the spirit having opened, he was prevented from proceeding with the first sketch, till he had closed it. During the time occupied in completing the drawing, the Flea told him that all fleas were inhabited by the souls of such men, as were by nature blood-thirsty to excess...’ £500-800 (1)

THE KENNETH TOMKINSON COLLECTION OF EARLY PRINTED BOOKS Ken Tomkinson (1918-1985) came from a rich heritage of book collectors. His grandfather was Michael Tomkinson (1841-1921), of Franche Hall, Kidderminster, Worcestershire, who established Tomkinson Carpets in Kidderminster in 1869. Michael was a major collector of books and Japanese antiquities. When Michael died his set of the four Shakespeare Folios was sold privately, while the remainder of his collection formed two sales at Sotheby’s (3 April and 3 July 1922). However, some books were retained by the family and some bought back at the auction. Michael’s son Geoffrey (1881-1963) continued the book collecting passion instilled in him by his father with an emphasis on private press books, producing his own noted book, A Select Bibliography of the Principal Modern Presses Public and Private in Great Britain and Ireland (1928). In turn, Geoffrey’s son Ken continued to add to two generations of Tomkinson family books and many of the books here bear the bookplate of one or more Tomkinson collectors. Upon his death the collection was inherited by Kenneth’s son Robert and his three sisters who have now decided to sell the early printed books, the private press books having been sold in these rooms in July this year.

Ficino ascribes to the human soul a middle position in a five-part division of things: between God and angelic beings on the one side, and qualities and bodies on the other.

THE ANTIQUARIAN LIBRARY OF CHRISTOPHER ROWE: THE CAVALIER WORLD; POETS, PLAYWRIGHTS AND PUBLISHERS After Christopher read English at St Catharine’s College, Cambridge, he became a schoolmaster, first in Norwich, then in Bristol. He inspired many boys to love literature, history and music and go on to make careers in these subjects. He undertook a Schoolmaster’s Fellowship at Christ Church, Oxford, during which he undertook research on King Charles I. Illness frustrated his teaching career, and it ultimately thwarted his project for a PhD dissertation on the 17th-century printer and bookseller, Humphrey Moseley, many of whose publications are to be found here. Moseley kindled in him a genuine scholarliness, wedded to his love of books not only as vessels of the seventeenth-century spirit but as tangible objects, each with its own physicality and individual experience of ownership and care. He made an outstanding collection of 17th-century books on diverse subjects, most notably the Cavalier poets. If the books were wrecks when he bought them, Christopher generously invested in their restoration, so that the collection was not only rare but also beautiful. Christopher died, aged 66, in 2015. It was his wish that the collection be sold through auction so that others had the thrill of hunting for and finding hidden gems. 383 [Allestree, Richard].

This volume includes the first appearance of the third (and final) part of the complete work. Grolier states that the frontispiece “was probably preceded by two blank leaves”. This is also true of this copy. Sir Mark Masterman Sykes (1771-1823) was the eldest son of Sir Christopher Sykes, 2nd Baronet of Sledmere, Yorkshire. Educated at Brasenose College, Oxford, he represented York in Parliament 1807-20. In 1795 he assumed the additional name of Masterman on his marriage to Henrietta, daughter and heir of Henry Masterman of Settrington Hall in Yorkshire. She died 1813, and remarried in 1814 his first cousin Mary Elizabeth Egerton, only daughter of William Egerton, formerly Tatton, of Tatton Park and Wythenshaw. He had no children by either wife, and his brother succeeded to the title and the estate. A famous bibliophile, his library, rich in incunables, early editions of the classics, and the Elizabethan drama, was sold by auction by R.H. Evans in three parts on 11 and 28 May and 21 June 1824. A member of the Roxburghe Club, a catalogue of his library was prepared by Henry John Todd. (1) £700-1000

N.P. Tinker, “John Grismond”, English Language Notes, 34 (1996), pp.30-35. The first (suppressed) edition of the first published collection of poems by katherine philips, “the matchless orinda” The poet and dramatist Katherine Philips (née Fowler, 1632-64), who used the sobriquet “Orinda”, was the most respected and most influential English woman writer of the seventeenth century. The founder of a kind of précieuse Society of Friendship — including such figures as Sir Edward Dering ( “Silvander”), Lord and Lady Dunganon (“Lucasia” and “Memnon”), Sir John Berkenhead (“Cratander”), and Sir Charles Cotterell (“Poliarchus”) — and who lived for much of her married life in Cardiganshire, she also established one of the best documented centres of literary manuscript production of her time. Although occasional poems by her had appeared in printed broadsides or other publications, as well as her successfully staged translation from Corneille, Pompey, the first collected edition of poems by her did not appear until 1664. Despite recent disputes as to whether or not she had a hand in this, her recorded lamentations insisting that she would not have published such a thing for a thousand pounds and that this edition was wholly unauthorised seem convincing enough. Her friends Cotterell and John Jeffreys prevailed upon the publisher Marriott to suppress the edition, but clearly a number of copies did get into circulation.

In the early 1640s he assembled a collection of poems written earlier, which now survives in a manuscript in the Bodleian Library, and he brought out a printed collection of them in 1646.

This present copy of the Poems is the first issue with sheets A and E in uncorrected form. John Brett-Smith noted that the other known copies in this state are the Dyce copy (in the Victoria and Albert Museum) and that in the library of Worcester College, Oxford. (1) £800-1200

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 live bidding 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. Bank Transfer: All transfers must state the relevant invoice no. If transferring from a foreign currency, the amount we receive must be the total due after the currency conversion and the deduction of any bank charges. Collection/Postage/Delivery: If you attend the auction in person and are successful in your bid, you are free to collect your item once payment has been made. Successful commission or live bids will be invoiced to you the day after the sale. When it is possible for our in-house packing department to send your purchase(s), a charge for postage/packing/insurance will be included in your invoice. Where it is not possible for our in-house packing department to send your item you will be required to make your own arrangements or to contact Mailboxes etc (tel: 01793 525009) who may be able to help. We provide a monthly delivery service to Central London, usually on Wednesday of the week following an auction. Payment must be received before this option can be requested. A charge will be added to your invoice for this service.

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.
