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) £70-100

This would appear to be an unrecorded variation of state 1. The date is significant. 1689 was the year that Louis XIV declared war on England in support of the deposed Catholic King James II. The three figures on the right of the cartouche represent James, his wife Mary and their infant son. The text beneath the inset map of the Faroe, Orkney and Shetland islands lists the English possessions in the Americas, the West Indies, Africa and Asia. (1) £500-800

A map which was controversial at the time of its publication in that Greenough was accused of plagiarising William Smith’s earlier and ground breaking geological survey and map of 1815. Greenough was stung enough by the critisicm to issue a written defense of his actions which was published in ‘Memoir of a Geological Map of England: to Which are Added, an Alphabetical Index to the Hills, and a List of the Hills Arranged According to Counties (1820)’.Smith’s low social staus and background resulted in his work being largely ignored and the Geological Society of London did indeed plagiarise the map, undercutting Smith’s asking price, which eventually pushed Smith to financial ruin and the debtor’s prison. Recognition of his role as ‘The Father of English Geology’ would only follow much later in 1831 when Smith was awarded the Woolaston medal by the Geological Society. Greenough’s map is important in its own right and is now recognised as a separate piece of scholarship but unlike Smith it involved no surveying but relied on other surveyors sending him information which he then collated.

This single-sheet map was published during the same period as Smith’s “Geological Survey Atlas of England,” a series of 24 slightly smaller county maps colored to show geological strata, issued in parts of 3 maps each from 1819 through 1824. Smith may have planned to sell the general map of England along with the completed series, which, however, remained unfinished.

DesBarres many talents were quickly recognized by his superiors and he was soon mapping the St. Lawrence River and working on his charts in Halifax during the winter months while teaching mathematics, astronomy, and surveying to a young James Cook.In 1760 DesBarres began mapping the Halifax Harbour in preparation for the construction of fortifications and dockyards. Over the next decade he would also complete detailed hydrological surveys of the coast.

Gill (MacDonald), Wonderground Map of London Town, published The Westminster Press, circa 1928, photolithographic colour printed map, a few closed tears and splits along old folds affecting image, 740 x 930mm This is an example of the slightly smaller and later edition of Gill’s original 1913 map. There is a 1924 edition which is assumed to have been altered to help the promotion of the 1924 British Empire Exhibition that was held at Wembley between April and October of that year. It can be identified by a sign saying:- ‘On To Wembley’ and an empire lion in the top left hand corner below the man pushing a bus. This example is a slightly later state with a greyhound replacing the lion. Greyhound racing started at Wembley in 1927 so this edition probably dates from 1927 or 1928. The map remains highly stylised and whimsical and was held in great affection by Londoners. It 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. Much work and research has been done by Roderick Barron and Bryars & Bryars on the maps of the Underground and the work of Macdonald Gill and I am also grateful to Claire Dobbins book, London Underground Maps: Art, Design and Cartography.

Only two institutional copies recorded (British Library and Manchester University). The last auction record we can find was Sothebys in 1970. The North Midland Railway was first proposed by the engineer George Stephenson in 1835 and was granted Parliamentary assent the following year, work starting on the line in 1837 with it opening in 1840. The railway ran between Derby, Rotherham and on to Leeds, connecting some of the prime industrial areas of the north. The map covers the route and much more besides, encompassing the area from Ripon down to Northampton and the Dee Estuary across to Newark, illustrating and naming all other significant lines within that area. There is a cross section of the entire line, “showing the inclinations” or altitudes, running along the lower margin. The North Midland Railway was far from a success in its early years, beset by higher than expected construction costs and intense competition from rival companies. After making drastic cuts, with consequent effects on services, the company merged with the Birmingham & Derby and the Midland County Railways in 1844 to form the Midland Railway. Charles Tee is listed in Robinson’s Railway Directory of 1841 as one of the director’s of the North Midland Railway, hence the lavish case bearing his name. (1) £300-500

562 Rossetti (Dante Gabriel, 1828-1882). The White Ship, author’s manuscript fair copy, 1880, written in brown ink to rectos of 19 ruled leaves, signed and dated ‘D.G. Rossetti: 1880’ at end, a little spotting, contemporary plain green wrappers, 202 x 162mm, top edge gilt, bound in contemporary gilt-lettered polished calf with oval arabesque design to centre of both covers, marbled endpapers and small armorial bookplate of the Boyds of Penkill to front pastedown, 4to ‘The ballad retells the story of the death of Henry I’s son and heir, when his ship went down with all aboard on 25 November 1120 as it was sailing from France to England ... The poem was completed around 26 April 1880, but it was undoubtedly begun much earlier, perhaps as early as 1873, certainly by 1878. Fragments for the ballad appear in note books that date from those years. On 12 April he showed William Michael Rossetti some of his preliminary work on the ballad and told him he was “inclined to take it up again”. Three manuscripts of the poem survive: a draft manuscript in Duke University Library; a first fair copy in Yale’s Beinecke Library; and a second fair copy, printer’s copy, in the British Library’ (RossettiArchive.org). To the census of fair copies can now be added this third fair copy manuscript, formerly in the possession of Alice Boyd (1825-1897), 14th Laird of Penkill Castle, where Rossetti was a regular visitor. Both the draft manuscript (T.J. Wise/Ashley Library copy) and the Beinecke Library copy are written on 70 numbered, and slightly taller, pages. The ballad was first published in ‘Ballads and Sonnets’ (1881), and collected thereafter. Three textual variations between this copy and the Yale copy have been identified: line 46 first word is ‘But’ in this copy, the draft, BL and first printed editions, ‘Yet’ in Yale copy; line 220: ‘The King had watched’ in draft, Yale, BL and first published edition, but ‘The King had sat’ in this copy; line 236: ‘When the sea-mew’ in all copies except here where perhaps uniquely, ‘When the sea-bird’.

Vincent Cartwright Vickers, author and illustrator of ‘The Google Book’ first published in 1913, was a member of the well-known family of military armaments manufacturers of the same name, a deputy lieutenant of the City of London and director of the Bank of England between 1910 and 1919. He had a passion for animals and birds, and was a fellow of the Royal Zoological Society. He had no formal training in art, but was an accomplished artist, exhibiting at the Royal Academy and the Arlington Gallery between 1926 and 1931. He particularly liked to draw birds at every opportunity, even painting an exotic bird onto the back of his Humber Snipe car.

678 Potter (Beatrix). The Tailor of Gloucester, 1st privately printed edition, [Strangeways], December 1902, colour frontispiece and fifteen colour plates, endpapers and edges spotted, original pink boards (spotted,) upper cover with printed lettering and vignette of three mice sewing, 16mo, together with a copy of The Art of Beatrix Potter, Warne, 1967, original cloth in worn dust jacket, inscribed on the front free endpaper ‘For Mr. Carr With best wishes from Leslie Linder. July 27th 1970’ Provenance: Given by Leslie Linder to the current owner’s husband in the 1970s in lieu of payment - at his request - for legal work which he carried out for Beatrix Potter’s bibliographer. Linder, p.420; Quinby 3. Rare: only 500 copies printed. This copy, apparently untouched by juvenile hands, is a remarkable survival. The story of the Tailor of Gloucester was first told in a letter from Beatrix to Freda Moore, daughter of her former governess, Annie Carter. Although Frederick Warne had taken up Beatrix’s ‘Bunny Book’, as they referred to ‘Peter Rabbit’, and published it in October 1902, the author felt that they might not wish to publish a second book so soon, or that they might want to alter it too much. So she returned to Strangeways, the original printers of ‘Peter Rabbit’, and herself paid for a private edition of 500 copies to be printed. The book differs considerably in both text and illustration from Warne’s later edition of 1903. Of all her books ‘The Tailor of Gloucester’ remained Beatrix Potter’s own favourite. (2) £2000-3000

THE BEALE COLLECTION OF RARE & INSCRIBED LEWIS CARROLL Anthony Beale (1932-2011) was born in Edgware, West London. For five years of his early adult life he worked in the theatre, after which he joined an insurance company. As a mature student, he took a degree in mathematics at the University of East Anglia, returning to West London where he became headmaster of East Sheen School in 1972 at the age of 39, a position he held until his retirement. This important collection of books by Lewis Carroll commenced when Anthony was just 17, living in a hostel in London where another young resident collected Dickens. Inspired, he thought he would like to start on a similar venture, but it could not be Dickens. His second choice would be Carroll. He didn’t realise what lay in store. His first Alice, bought from a shop in Islington, was the first Macmillan 6d paperback version, priced at 2/6. Charing Cross Road was a good hunting ground, and Marks & Co., at 84 Charing Cross Road gave him his first opportunity to see a bookseller’s inner sanctum. There was a Rhyme & Reason but it was £5 – unaffordable. After several visits without soliciting on his part he was offered it for £3.10 shillings. It was wrapped up and the bookseller suggested that he would find the name of the girl it was presented to somewhere – the name was Alice Racks. The Oxford bookseller Albi Rosenthal in Broad Street was another good source and kept him informed. He also collected cut-outs from Tetley Tea Bags and sent them with his compliments. It was gestures like this that made collecting such a pleasure. Anthony joined The Lewis Carroll Society shortly after its inception in 1969, and in 1972 he chaired the ‘Alice’ exhibition at Longleat, for which he was presented with a silver salver by the Marquis of Bath.

She lived next door and Dodgson invited her to “see something rather puzzling”: the effect of holding an orange in the right hand as viewed in a tall mirror. In her solution to the puzzle, Alice Raikes suggested that if she was on the other side of the mirror, the orange would remain in her right hand and not be in the left hand, as shown by her reflection.

FILM POSTERS Robert Stilwell 1943-2014 Robert Stilwell's deep love of film and cinema stemmed in part from the fact that his mother had herself been a film actress, the 'starlet' Marjorie Taylor who played opposite Todd Slaughter in a number of the “grand guignol” movies for which he became famous in the 1930's. At Trinity College Dublin Robert was a leading light in the University Film Society and was responsible for introducing students to contemporary European cinema and the French 'Nouvelle Vague'. He became a life member of the British Film Institute, to whom he left a bequest in his will, and spent countless hours at the NFT over the next 40 years during which time he served six years as Manager of the independent Paris Pullman Cinema in South Kensington: part of the archive is from this period. His considerable academic knowledge of all aspects of film-making – cinematography, soundtrack music, the director as 'auteur', the graphic design of opening titles and posters – was crystallised in the films of Alfred Hitchcock and Otto Preminger and the design work of Saul Bass and Bob Peake, of which there are many examples in this collection.

852* The Beatles. The Beatles, a.k.a “The White Album” (PMC 7067/8), original 1968 UK first mono pressing double LP by The Beatles, Serial Number 0069379, including all original inserts in near mint condition (large While Hamilton collage poster with lyrics on reverse, four individual glossy photos of the band members by John Kelly each measuring 29cm x 20cm, packing spacer sheet separating poster and photos), original black inner sleeves in very good condition without seam splits, dark green Apple labels in excellent condition with only very minor spindle marks and carrying the text “Sold in U.K.” and missing the all important “An EMI Recording”, matrix numbers XEX 709-1/710-1/711-1/712-2, vinyl in excellent condition with only a few marks visible, original flip-back fully laminated top opening Garrod & Lofthouse gatefold sleeve in near mint condition free of any defects, writing, creases or splits and lamination fully intact

An important work of British psychedelia, the album incorporates a range of stylistic influences, including vaudeville, circus, music hall, avant-garde, and Western and Indian classical music. Professor Kevin J. Dettmar, writing in the Oxford Encyclopedia of British Literature, described it as “the most important and influential rock and roll album ever recorded”. The cover, depicting the band posing in front of a tableau of celebrities and historical figures, was designed by the British pop artists Peter Blake and Jann Haworth. The album’s lyrics were printed in full on the back cover, the first time this had been done on a rock LP. The final cost for the cover art was nearly £3,000, an extravagant sum for a time when album covers would typically cost around £50. This is an exceptional example of their psychedelic masterpiece which celebrates its 50th anniversary next year. (1) £150-200

This is a true first pressing, which was only available in UK stores for barely a week. When this album was released, pressings were being shifted from Parlophone to Apple labels and some mistakes were made. Whoever was in charge “forgot” to put “An EMI Recording” on any of the White Album’s labels, thus constituting a clear copyright violation. Only five days after production started, on 27th November 1968, officials corrected that error and were most probably unaware of the fact that by doing so they created a highly sought-after collector item, namely a “true first press variation”. The labels on this copy do not carry the “An EMI Recording” is therefore identified as having been manufactured in the first five days of production. This album was the first The Beatles undertook following the death of their manager Brian Epstein. Originally entitled “A Doll’s House”, the title was changed when the British progressive band Family released the similarly titled “Music in a Doll’s House” earlier that year. (1) £200-300

She lives in the most beautiful Elizabethan manor house’. Yeats had spent 30 June and 1 July 1906 at Katharine Horner’s 40-bedroom country family home, Mells Park, near Frome in Somerset. Katharine Horner (1885-1976) was recalled by Lady Cynthia Asquith in her memoirs drifting into the room carrying ‘a volume of Yeats’ early poems, and she herself looks not unlike one of his fated heroines’. On 25 July 1907 she was to marry Raymond Asquith (1878-1916), eldest son of the then Chancellor of the Exchequer, and later Prime Minister, Herbert Henry Asquith. (1) £100-150

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.
