The most important biology book ever published. Darwin’s achievement “is the most powerful and comprehensive idea that has ever arisen on earth. It helps us understand our origins... We are part of a total process, made of the same matter and operating by the same energy as the rest of the cosmos, maintaining and reproducing by the same mechanism as the rest of life...” (Sir Julian Huxley). In his conclusion, Darwin states “There is a grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed into a few forms or into one; and that, whilst this planet has gone cycling on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a begining endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being, evolved”.

This is the slightly smaller and later edition of Gill’s original 1913 map.There is a subsequent 1924 edition which was 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 in 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.

This example, published in the spring of 1915 is prior to Italy’s entry into the war on the side of the allies. The almost childlike pictorial style embellished with short pieces of rhyming verse shows the perceived position and status of each of the assorted European neutrals and combatants. (1) £500-800

157 Satirical map. European Revue. Kill that Eagle, published Geographia Ltd, London, 1915, colour lithographic map of Europe after J. H. Amschewitz, old folds, a few folds strengthened on verso, 515 x 655mm

153 Propaganda maps. La Guerre est L’Industrie Nationale de la Prusse/ Le Rêve Allemand, published P. J. Gallais, Paris, 1918, French colour lithographic propoganda map with explanatory text on verso, two copies, each 240 x 295mm

An unusual German counter version of British artist J. H. Amschewitz’s original December 1914 satirical map of the Euopean war. Both Johnson Riddle’s November 1914 map ‘Hark! Hark! The Dogs do Bark!’ and Amschewitz’s ‘European Revue...,’ published just a few weeks later, elicited a curious propoganda counter blast from the Hamburg publisher Walter Nölting in 1915. He re-produced both maps for the German domestic market. Nolting claimed that the Amschewitz map was clear documentary evidence of Albion’s perfidy. His claim was based on Winston Churchill’s statement that despite the war Great Britain would continue with ‘business as usual’ (the legend is written large across the body of England). Nolting chose to misinterpret the statement for propoganda purposes that this latest war is for Britain just ‘business as usual’ given her historic record and regular propensity for war-mongering. The map reproduces the English text with a few words and phrases transposed into German for better understanding. The last line of German text below the image translates as ‘Reproduced by a German printer without kind permission from our English cousin as an eternal memorial’. (1) £500-800

The map uses the well worn conceit of an octopus and its tentacles to symbolise Prussia’s territorial ambitions to ensnare and expand into the rest of Europe. (2) £100-150

158 Satirical map. Lehmann-Dumont (Karl), Humoristische Karte von Europa im Jahre 1914, published Dresden, 1914, colour printed photolithographic allegorical map, inset map of Japan, old folds with small holes where folds cross, some marginal closed tears and slight fraying, 350 x 490mm An allegorical depiction of Europe, with the bias on Germany and Prussia. Undoubtedly published for amusement it concentrates on the national characteristics and the foibles of each nation, but there is also a more disturbing element of propoganda. The date of publication and the depiction of national stereotypes will prove to be highly prophetic of the carnage that was shortly to engulf the continent. (1) £400-600

A highly decorative pictorial map, very much in the style of Macdonald Gill. A note in the lower right corner states ‘Dimensions & proportions must not be taken seriously. It being the intention of the author only to amuse and instruct’. (1) £100-150

180 World. Lufft (Hans), ‘Der Prophet’, map of the world based on the prophet Daniel’s dream. [1530 but this edition circa 1560], uncoloured woodblock map set into an ornate engraved border, the map shows the four beasts of Daniel’s dream and the highly simplified continents of Europe, Africa and Asia, set in its biblical context with Dutch text below and on the verso, title above map, slight toning and text showthrough, map size 120 x 155mm In the depiction of the four animals and their geographical attribution, the artist largely follows the text of the seventh chapter of the book of the prophet Daniel in the Old Testament of the Bible. Hans Lufft included a map amongst the column illustrations for his large folio edition of Luther’s German Bible. Luffts rather abstract map comprises a sketchy outline of the three Old World continents with the four mythical beasts seen by the prophet Daniel in his Dream, as related in the Book of Daniel, Chapter 7 (where the map always occurs). The four Beasts have come to stand for the four empires of Babylon, Medes and Persians, Greece (Alexander and his successors) and Rome but, placed on the map of Asia, Europe and Africa, they seem to have, as Strachan remarked, little or no relation to the accepted interpretation of the four empires which they represent. This curious map had already appeared in print and it continued to feature as a column illustration in re-issues of Luffts Wittenberg Bible although no other bible publishers seem to have made use of it.

Abuse of Official Postal Franking. The letter exhibits an example of an abuse of official Franking privilege by the Heralds’ Office since while the letter is marked ‘Free R. Clifton’, (and so no charge was raised) the address and inscription ‘p[er] Norwich Bagg’ is in Mawson’s hand, so contravening the Act of Parliament under which the letter should have been disallowed as free. The letter bears a good strike of an early Bishopmark (grade ***). Le Neve has added his autograph memorandum dated 31 July 1729 - ‘Mr Mawson hath orders to make a coppy of Cursons pedigr. Answered Sunday.’ The watermark is a lion rampant brandishing a sword and a seated Britannia all within a pallet fence. Peter le Neve held the office of Norroy King of Arms from 1704-1729. Richard Mawson was the son of Charles Mawson, Chester Herald. He held the office of Portcullis from 1717 and died at the College of Arms on the day the warrant was made out for appointing him Windsor Herald on September 2, 1745 at the age of 60. (1) £160-180

398* Wallace (Alfred Russel, 1823-1913). ‘Notes for the use of Mr. James Marchant as to his proposed book on the Life-Work of Darwin and Wallace’, being the complete and unpublished autograph manuscript by Wallace giving Marchant his proposed structure and outline of the contents for the book, circa March 1913, written neatly in black ink in Wallace’s hand on the rectos of seven leaves of laid paper, the first page giving short title and authors’ names, the second page inscribed ‘Notes for the use of Mr. James Marchant as to his proposed Book on the Life-Work of Darwin and Wallace, by A.R.W.’, the following five numbered pages giving the full title, ‘Darwin and Wallace: A Study of their Literary and Scientific Writings with an Estimate of the Present Position of the Theory of Natural Selection as an adequate explanation of the Process of Organic Evolution’, and Suggested Contents under eight chapter headings, ‘Chapter I. A sketch of the mores salient conditions and events which led them, independently, to the idea of Natural Selection – (travel – Malthus – geographical distribution &c. &c.)’, ‘Chapter II. The diversities and similarities in their respective environments – social and educational – the diversities being much the more important. Environment was therefore not the determining factor in their coincident Life-Work.’, ‘Chapter III. Direct Heredity also unlike – Similarity of intellectual character must therefore have been due to chance intermingling of somewhat remote ancestral traits, leading to an almost identical result in their scientific discovery’, Chapter IV to compare their literary work, Chapter V to be about Darwin’s scientific work starting with the ‘Origin of Species’, ‘ and ‘all the other works being extensions and applications of the theory, founded mainly on his own observation and experiment – personal experiment the preponderating factor’, Chapter VI to be about the scientific works of Wallace, ‘ their chief characteristic being that they are the results of reasoning on the observations and experiments of other writers’, Chapter VII to be ‘General conclusions as to the character and life-work of the co-discovers of Natural Selection’, and the final Chapter VIII to be about as Natural Selection stands today and who its chief upholders are in Europe and America, how other theories such as ‘Mutationism and Mendelianism [are] totally inadequate’, but also saying that ‘Natural Selection does not claim to account for the first causes of life – or for the fundamental forces and powers of Growth and Reproduction…’, paper somewhat toned and with a few minor splits and tiny chips not affecting text, sheet sizes 19.5 x 16.5cm, together with a John Murray printed announcement card for the planned publication of the book in Spring 1915, giving the title as Wallace proposed above, and the authors as ‘James Marchant, Assisted by Alfred Russel Wallace, O.M.’, 9 x 11.5cm A unique manuscript by the co-discoverer of the theory of evolution by natural selection, written in the year he died, and for a book that was never published. In these seven pages Wallace gives a succinct and lucid sketch for the genealogy of the theory of natural selection and a comparison of the lives and ideas of its two authors. The subjects of chapters 2 and 3 are of particular interest, Wallace noting how both Darwin and himself, with such different backgrounds, came to have almost identical ideas. Wallace significantly concludes that environment was therefore not the factor in their ‘coincident life-work’, and by suggesting that it ‘may have been due to chance intermingling of somewhat remote ancestral traits’, applied ideas of heredity and natural selection to their own scientifically-minded brains. James Marchant must have hoped to continue with the publication of the book in spite of Wallace’s death as is shown by the John Murray announcement card. Subsequently, Marchant did publish the two-volume work, ‘Alfred Russel Wallace: Letters and Reminiscences’ (Cassell, 1916), and in the Introduction he refers to the proposed book and its non-publication: ‘It may be stated here that Wallace had suggested to the present writer that he should undertake a new work, to be called “Darwin and Wallace”, which was to have been a comparative study of the literary and scientific writings, with an estimate of the present position of the theory of Natural Selection and adequate explanation of the process of organic evolution. Wallace had promised to give as much assistance as possible in selecting the material without which the task on such a scale would obviously have been impossible. Alas! soon after the agreement with the publishers was signed and in the very month that the plan of the work was to have been shown to Wallace, his hand was unexpectedly stilled in death; and the book remains unwritten. But as the names of Darwin and Wallace are inseparable even by the scythe of time, a slight attempt is here made, in the first sections of Part I. and Part II., to take note of their ancestry and the diversities and similarities in their respective characters and environments – social and educational; to mark the chief characteristics of their literary works and the more salient conditions and events which led them, independently, to the idea of Natural Selection. Finally, it may be remarked that up to the present time the unique work and position of Wallace have not been fully disclosed owing to his great modesty and to the fact that he outlived all his contemporaries’.

These books were so designed that a blow of air by the demonstrator and a swift riffling through the pages produced a different set of images depending on which way up the volume was held and from which notch on the fore-edge it was thumbed. Our volume has seven changes: harlequin; Le Pere; l’Abbé; Soldat; flowers; La Mere; playing cards. By their very nature these ephemeral items were designed for heavy use, and so rarely survive, particularly in such good condition. (1) £1000-1500

A collection of plates from Aspin’s work neatly converted into a delightful miniature concertina book for juvenile hands. Titles include: Chinese Pedlar with Rats & Puppies for Pies; American Indian Chiefs; Esquimaux; Negroes; A Norwegian, Killing a Bear; Persian Ladies; Sandwich Islanders. (1) £150-200

Schreiber, English, 57 (lacking 3 of hearts); Whiting, A Handful of History, pp.50-63. There are several slightly differing issues of these cards, these being without the medallion portraits on the court cards. Although sadly diminished in number since 1921, complete packs are rare and even part packs are uncommon. Political packs of playing cards were popular at the end of the seventeenth century, this one depicting the fictitious Catholic conspiracy to kill Charles II which Reverend Titus Oates claimed to have uncovered in 1678. The cards, with illustrations and text below, tell the story of the plot and the consequences for the alleged Roman Catholic enemies of the state, e.g.: ‘The Execution of the 5 Jesuitts’; ‘Reddin standing in ye Pillory’; ‘Dr. Oates discovereth ye Plot to ye King and Councell’. Francis Barlow’s original drawings for the deck are in the British Museum. (1) £400-600

THE PLAYING CARD COLLECTION OF NICK ARDEN THOMAS Nick Arden Thomas has researched, dealt in and collected antique playing cards for over forty years. In 1990 a collection of his playing cards were sold at auction, and many of them were purchased by the Fournier Museum. When he first began collecting he lived near Sylvia Mann and Adrienne Gurr, and so had experts on hand to instruct and guide him. Nick Thomas was born in the UK in 1944, but taken to Australia two years later by his Kiwi mother when his parents separated. As well as an expert on the subject of playing cards, he has served as an infantryman in Vietnam and Malaya, ran cargo boats up and down the rivers of New Guinea, worked in the seismic industry, spent time fossicking for sapphires and other gem stones in remote parts of Australia, and has written for magazines, television and radio. In 2014 he published a book entitled “Once a Pommie Swagman”, telling the rollicking, and at times, poignant story of a 4,000 mile hitch-hiking trip around Australia with a friend when they were both sixteen.

Rare pack of playing cards made in 1839 to celebrate the marriage of Victoria and Albert, whose coat of arms adorns the backs. The imprint on the duty ace refers to ‘His’ Majesty; it was at the request of Queen Victoria that this was left on as a mark of respect to her Uncle, William IV. There was a double-ended pack made for the Great Exhibition of 1851 which was withdrawn at the Queen’s request and not sold on the open market (see ‘The Playing Card’, March 2005). Apart from being double-ended it was an exact copy of this single-ended pack. ‘The House of De La Rue’, published on the publisher’s 125th anniversary in 1957, states that this design was “Reserved by Royal Command”. The British Museum has such a set, with double-ended courts, which was bequeathed by Lady Schreiber (Schreiber 5: incomplete, lacking the three of clubs). The V&A has a single-ended pack with this back design, as did the Kaplan Collection. However both packs are narrow decks, so that the coat of arms is more oval-shaped. (1) £700-1000

Rare. David Kimberley & Sons were makers of carpenters’ planes, so the production of a deck of playing cards was a marked departure from their usual business. They made five editions of these cards between 1892 and 1905, after which the the firm went out of business. This deck is the second (and best) edition, the first being being poorly printed and swiftly withdrawn, and the subsequent editions being inferior in several ways (notably having only two, not four, flags on the aces, and not being printed in thirteen colours as here). Queen Victoria and Prince Albert are the king and queen of diamonds, Napoleon is king of spades, George Washington is king of hearts, and Wilhelm III is king of clubs.

A rare set of operatic playing cards in very good condition. The Bibliothèque Nationale de France list this set, but have only ten of the fifty-two cards. The court cards are photographs of famous 19th century French opera singers. The portraits were taken by renowned French lithographer and photographer Adolphe Bilordeaux (1807-1872) who was one of the pioneers in the use of salt print technique on waxed paper. Gouache was added to the cards to highlight the suit symbols as colour photography was not then possible. These cards are reminiscent of the fashionable costume packs made by Gilbert and others around this time. Avril et Cie was only active in Paris between 1856 and 1868, after which it was declared bankrupt. The British Museum has a deck by Avril, of English historical characters, with decorative aces identical to ours (Schreiber 67). The opera singers represented include Louis Gueymard, Pauline Lauters, Charles Louis Puberaux and Marie Cico. (1) £600-900

A unique set of hand-made playing cards. Whilst bone playing cards made by French Prisoners of War appear on the market from time to time, we have not seen another deck painted on card. The manuscript note on the enclosed visiting card states: “Set hand-made Cards & Case made by French Prisoners of War at Porchester Castle in Napoleonic Wars. Given to [Mrs. J.R.G. Chick-Lucas(printed)]’ Mother-in-Law (Mrs. George Lucas) by a very old Resident of Porchester whose father had been a Prison Official at the Castle. Date of Gift was well before 1886, & the Ancient Dame died soon after. Given to Walter F. Chevers by his loving sister Alianora Chick-Lucas for July 2 - 1940.’ The address printed on the visiting card is ‘Belle Vue Cottage, Brading, I of W’. Alianora (1870-1956), wife of James Robb Goodman Chick-Lucas, is buried at St. Mary’s Church, Brading. Her brother, Walter Forsyth Chevers (1867-1948) was born in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire. They were the children of Norman Chevers (1818-1886), Deputy Surgeon General of the Bengal Army, and his wife Emily Ann, and the family was known to have been residing at Sandown on the Isle of Wight in 1908. French Prisoners of War were kept at Portchester Castle, Hampshire, between 1793 and 1817, with more than 9,000 being held during this time. The late John Berry called this deck “a real ‘find’: very nicely done for a hand-made pack”. Whilst the male court cards illustrate kings and warriors, the queens represent classical goddesses: the queen of clubs is Cirene, or possibly Diana (with crescent moon head-piece); the queen of diamonds represents Flora (with a garland of flowers); the queen of spades shows Pax, the goddess of peace (with a cornucopia in one hand and an olive branch in the other); and the queen of hearts also carries a cornucopia, but no other symbol to distinguish her from the many deities who are associated with the horn of plenty.

She studied at Glasgow School of Art where she met fellow artist and future husband Ian Cheyne. Garrow went on to make her living as a fashion illustrator and writer, as well as illustrating books. She is known to have exhibited at Glasgow Insitute of Fine Arts and the Scottish Royal Academy, and yet she seems to have left little work behind her. It is said that in the 1980s, when she sold what was left of the work from her husband’s studio, she had not a single piece of her own work left to offer. This striking and technically accomplished watercolour appears to depict a scene from the pantomime ballet ‘Papillons’ by Michel Fokine, first performed at the Theatre de Monte-Carlo in 1914 by Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes, with costumes designed by Leon Bakst. In the opening scene Pierrot sees a group of dancing girls with wings attached to their shoulders, and believing them to be butterflies, tries to attract them with a candle flame. He succeeds in capturing one, but he is so rough with her that her wings break and she falls down dead. Her companions come back to help, they re-attach her wings, and she comes back to life.

There are only two copies on COPAC (British Library, Cambridge University). We have traced only one other copy sold at auction (2005). On May 25th 1894 Ernest Nister sent a letter in response to some drawings offered him by Beatrix Potter: “I fear we cannot keep more than three of the other designs - the cat with the tea set, the mouse knitting, and the rabbit with the umbrella and basket. For these we should be pleased to pay you 7/6 a piece if you can see your way to take it.” Beatrix accepted this offer, and the rabbit with umbrella appears in this 1895 publication. A set of frog drawings were discussed in the same exchange of correspondence, and these the publisher eventually bought (after much haggling over price in which the artist held her ground) and these were subsequently published in ‘Comical Customers’ (1896) and ‘Nister’s Holiday Annual for 1896’. Much later Potter was to write ‘Nister was an unattractive German (?) Firm - but it was my first start at anything published’.

Having enlisted as a private soldier in the Gloucestershire regiment in February 1915, Gurney began writing poetry seriously at the front, sending poems to his close friend, the musicologist and critic Marion Scott, who worked with Gurney as his editor and business manager. While writing the poems for what would become his first book ‘Severn and Somme’ he was wounded in the shoulder in April 1917. However, he returned to battle and continued to work on his book and composing music. He was gassed in September 1917 and sent to the Edinburgh War Hospital. His book was published in November 1917. Scott continued to champion Gurney’s music and poetry throughout Gurney’s mentally troubled life up until her own death in 1953. Scott helped Gurney deal with his doctors, made decisions about his care, took him on trips and provided financial support. After Gurney’s death in 1937 she gained full control of his estate and their biographies are covered in Pamela Blevins, ‘Ivor Gurney & Marion Scott: Song of Pain and Beauty’ (2008).

Perhaps that could be used by the publishers, but they must make plain that I am now 17 years older, fatter & uglier’, then giving a lengthy autobiographical account with his academic and other achievements, Modern History at Oxford, painting, cabinet making, all described parenthetically as ‘without glory’, before listing his publications including his first novel ‘Decline and Fall’ which ‘was a success. Since then I have had no bitter struggles for recognition & have always been unduly praised by critics & unduly prosperous’, mentioning his war service, ‘varied, enjoyable but without distinction... finished the war among Tito’s beastly partisans’, his marriage and conversion to Catholicism, and, finally, ‘Brideshead Revisited’ on which he comments, ‘This book is more serious than its predecessors, has annoyed most of the English critics and delighted illiterate Americans in a disconcerting way.

Signed twice by a juvenile Graham Greene in pencil to front pastedown, and two ink annotations, presumably by Graham Greene to page 46, providing two extra rules for the game. In the first volume of his autobiography A Sort of Life, Graham Greene recounts this copy of Little Wars: “My favourite toys in those days were a clockwork train and lead soldiers... When I was a bit older (about twelve) I would play with Hugh, who was six, an elaborate war game based on H.G. Wells’s book Little Wars. In the holidays we were able to use the big tables in the School House dining hall. We would push two tables together and lay out a whole countryside. There were roads marked in chalk and cottages and forests of twigs and rivers which had to be crossed. One game might last a week, with perhaps two hundred men on either side, quick raids by cavalry and slow advances by infantry, measured on lengths of string, melees which led to capture of prisoners, and bombardments with the two 4.2 naval guns. It was 1916, but war was still glamorous to a child”. The poor condition of the book shows the extent to which the Greene brothers played with it, with Graham Greene’s extra rules 7 and 8 in ink at foot of page 46, “A gun may not fire if there is more than 2 men of its opponents side within 3” of it” and “One can carry two sand bags moving half his move [and] one [sandbag moving] the whole of his move”. There are pencil scores from the brothers games to the rear endpapers, under the headings H and G (unsurprisingly the elder Graham always seemed to win), together with a few juvenile drawings which appear to be the six-year old Hugh’s work.

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.

(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.
