Over this again is a layer of beautiful Christian charity that tells me that very likely it was all my fault – or partly my fault – and that in any case I must not be horrid and unkind to you. And these layers are white, green and red like the Bulgarian flag. Here is one more point. When you tell Courtenay what I said yesterday you will not be generous or even just if you say that I admitted myself that I was angry because on the boat you had not taken enough notice of me.

Collinson’, no place, no date [end of November, 1856], to the Editor of The Times, ‘In your leading article on Thursday relative to the continuance of the search for Sir J. Franklin and his companions you have most unfairly summed up the results of expeditions hitherto sent in quest of our missing countrymen. There is not a doubt that great hardships have been undergone and perils encountered but the assertion that the crews of the abandoned ships were withdrawn by a miracle almost as not warranted by the fact related in the Journals now before the public. So long as no clue was obtained to the route pursued by the necessary vessels after leaving Beechey Island there was a necessity that every nook and corner of the Arctic Sea should be examined entailing what we know now to be much unnecessary hazard and fatigue. The case is now different we know the exact spot where to go to we know that the confines of the area have been reached we are aware that the travelling parties from the Enterprise could have traversed the very route pursued by the crews of the Erebus & Terror after they abandoned their vessels and we are aware that that ship returned in safety to England. Yet in the face of all this you call upon the British public to discountenance what you are pleased to term so outrageous a proceeding...’, continuing that we owe it to the memory of these 135 Englishmen ‘whose lives have failed a sacrifice to the accomplishment of a great geographical problem, to the satisfaction of their friends & relatives that the mystery should be cleared up. We owe it to our national honour that what we have begun should be accomplished and that we should not deprive our fellow countrymen who may hereafter be in difficulty of that firm trust in succour which has hitherto formed a bond on union in distress. Sir, I have been brought up in the persuasion that perseverance in a good and noble cause is one of the attributes of the Anglo-Saxon race. Let us not permit the slur of abandoning the fate of our missing countrymen to surmise to be handed down to posterity when we have it in our power without serious risk to place the matter beyond a doubt...’, 2 pages with integral blank, some browning and mounting guard to inner margin, 4to

This would appear to be a copy letter written by Collinson, the original dated at Boldon, Gateshead, 28 November 1856 was published in The Times on Monday 1 December 1856, page 5. ‘In 1849 Collinson was appointed to command an expedition for the relief of Sir John Franklin, by way of the Bering Strait; he himself had command of the Enterprise, and with him was Commander Robert Le Mesurier McClure in the Investigator. ... Of the many who had searched for Franklin, Collinson came closest to the place where the expedition had ended. Collinson’s addition to geographical knowledge on this Arctic trip was very considerable, and would have been tantamount to the discovery of the North-West Passage, had this not been already actually achieved by the men of the Investigator’ (ODNB Online).

THE ARTHUR RIDGEWELL COLLECTION OF LP RECORDS Arthur Ridgewell trained as an industrial draughtsman and designer, but his great passion away from his work was classical music. From an early age he started collecting recordings and books of famous musicians and conductors, especially those connected with Sir Thomas Beecham. In the late 1980s, Lady Shirley Beecham founded the archive label The Beecham Collection, for which Arthur became the executive producer. He also produced the Argo Spoken Word series, and often assisted unofficially in production work at the Decca studios. His extensive collection of classical recordings, numbering over 2000, together with a smaller section of jazz, was carefully archived, and only rarely played on the best available equipment, including a Thorens turntable (or a Garrard 401 transcription turntable), SME 3009 pickup arm and Ortophon cartridges.

(1)

A collection of nursery rhymes in four parts, with parts 1 and 2, compiled by Joseph Ritson, originally published in 1784. This edition adds parts 3 and 4, collected by Francis Douce and others. It includes the first appearances in print of Humpty Dumpty and Little Bo-Peep, I Love Sixpence, etc. Sir Henry Cole (1808-1882), civil servant, industrialist and Christmas card inventor. The ‘h’ and accompanying pencilled numerals that appear throughout the text refer to the verses as they appeared in James Orchard Halliwell-Phillipps’ ‘The Nursery Rhymes of England: Obtained Principally from Oral Tradition’ (1844). The additional manuscript verses are in an unidentified hand and would not appear to be that of Henry Cole nor the Shakespearean scholar and nursery rhyme collector James Orchard Halliwell-Phillipps (1820-1889). Presumably the Charles Halliwell whose name appears at the back of the volume is a later relation who seems to have added one or two pencil lines to the interleaved blanks. Facing Little Bo-Peep on the blank is one verse that begins ‘Little Johnny went to Town / Upon a little pony / Stuck a feather in his cap / Looked like a Macaroni’. Opposite ‘The Song of the Cat and the Fiddle’ is written: ‘continuation. The basin stood behind the door, / and bid the dishcloth wash the floor, / The spit stood up like an armed man, / And vowed he’d fight the dripping pan, / The gridiron said gentlemen if you can’t agree, / I’m the head constable bring ‘em to me’.

An unrestored copy of Beatrix Potter’s extremely rare first book: one of only 250 copies, and this copy inscribed by Beatrix Potter. The character of Peter Rabbit was based on Beatrix’s own pet rabbit, and he made his first appearance in a letter written in 1893 to Noel, the five-year-old offspring of her former governess, Annie Carter. Noel and his siblings so enjoyed this and subsequent letters that Beatrix thought about having the story published. In 1900 she sent the story to at least six different publishers, all of whom rejected it, including Frederick Warne, who later decided to take the book on. Undeterred, Beatrix decided to have her little book privately printed, and in 1901 250 copies were published priced at 1/6 each, of which this is one. They sold so well that in February 1902 she had a further 200 copies printed with slightly amended text. (1) £20000-25000

THE G.S. TOMKINSON COLLECTION OF PRIVATE PRESS BOOKS This fine collection of private press books was largely formed by Geoffrey Stewart Tomkinson (1881-1963), author of A Select Bibliography of the Principal Modern Presses Public and Private in Great Britain and Ireland (1928). Geoffrey was the son of Michael Tomkinson (18411921), 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 Geoffrey significantly added to the collection of private press books. In turn, his son Kenneth (1918-1985), continued to add to two generations of Tomkinson family private press books. Upon his death the collection was inherited by Kenneth’s son Robert and his three sisters who have now decided to sell.

The current owner is the great granddaughter of Reverend Charles Maddison Green, who married Haggard’s eldest sister Ella. This typewriter dates from the last two years of Haggard’s life and whether he used it to write anything is a matter of speculation.

I thank you still more for your kind remarks about myself. They raise the question as to whether that can be poetry which is unadorned with either rhyme or metre’, 2 pages with intregral blank, the second longer letter ‘Letters such as yours - of which one arrives now and again, are great consolations to me who have grown old practising a somewhat dreary trade...’, continuing to talk about literary fashions and reputations, ‘I know well enough that I am looked down upon as a literary amateur, born of a combination of country squire and public servant, and to some extent this is true. I’ve never set out to write modern novels of the sort that are so popular now-a-days mean books about mean people, many of them, perhaps because I can’t, and perhaps because such stuff bores me and, in a way, I know too much of life to travesty it in this fashion. Therefore obviously I am not “a literary man!”, continuing in similar vein, 7 pages on 2 bifolia, minor toning, both 8vo (2)

I am glad to hear that you are away from air-raids in the invigorating air of Brighton. Yes: I knew William Barnes, and if you are acquainted with the dialect of the west you will appreciate him more than Londoners can.

Autograph letter signed, ‘Aldous Huxley’, La Gorguette, Sanary, [France], 25 November 1932, to [Sir Courtenay] Mansel thanking him for his kind and most interesting letter and referring to his poetry anthology, the imperfections of which ‘are due to the fact that I had been lazily collecting for it during only a fairly short time, during which I suppose I didn’t happen to read the poets you mention. (How I came to neglect Villon, I can’t imagine; for I have a very great admiration for him. But when it came to the final putting together, I entirely forgot - as I now realize - his very existence.)’, referring to a poem which was Breasted’s translation and to Mansel’s version which he considers an interesting experiment, ‘I am a little dubious, however, about the effect of the repeated rime. It renders the persistent melancholy of the original - but renders it too well, so that there is an effect of harping almost painfully on the same note...’, 2 pages on rectos of 2 sheets of pale blue stationery, some creasing, oblong 8vo

There is, however, a possible explanation: I have recently been asked to write something - anything - for the Old Coventrians’ number of the school magazine, and I have been turning over my memories of 1930-40, and all sorts of recollections have been cropping up’, thanking him for asking him to write in his copy of the ‘Oxford Book’ and though it hasn’t pleased as many people as it ought to please it is selling well, noting a second impression is due shortly and that ‘it was a fearful labour of some six years, and I am glad it is over’, mentioning various mutual former acquaintances and friends and wondering what has happened to them, names include K.H.S.

A collection of short stories by novelist and historian Charles Francis Keary (1848-1917) which is, it has been said, possibly the rarest volume of collected tales in the weird macabre genre. The book is known to have influenced James Joyce’s collection of short stories ‘Dubliners’, published in 1914, apparently evidenced in a letter from Joyce dated 24th September 1905 (‘Letters of James Joyce’, volume 2, p.111). Keary’s work is not listed in Locke’s ‘A Spectrum of Fantasy’, and we have been unable to trace any record of another copy sold; there appears to be no other edition ever published. A quotation on the title-page sets the scene: ‘A dog is howling at the court-yard door;/Within, the horses drag their halterchains;/Behold! the world is full of misty rains;/And the old shepherd knows the twilight frore./Night with her army would the vale engulf,/Her cloudy pickets clambering to the height;/And now from a near pinewood into sight/Steals one grey wolf’.

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.

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 best bid, or in the case of loss or damage prior to the sale that which the specialised staff of the Auctioneer shall in their absolute discretion estimate to be the auction value of such goods. (b) The Auctioneer shall not be responsible for damage to or the loss, theft, or destruction of any goods not so insured because of the owner’s written instructions. 12. The Auctioneer shall remit the proceeds of the sale to the seller thirty days after the day of the auction provided that the Auctioneer has received the total sum due from the buyer. In all other cases the Auctioneer will remit the proceeds of the sale to the seller within seven days of the receipt by the Auctioneer of the total sum due. The Auctioneer will not be deemed to have received the total sum due until after any cheque delivered by the buyer has been cleared. In the event of the Auctioneer exercising his right to rescind the sale his obligation to the seller hereunder lapses. 13. In the case of the seller withdrawing instructions to the Auctioneer to sell any lot or lots, the Auctioneer may charge a fee of 12.5% of the Auctioneer's middle estimate of the auction price of the lot withdrawn together with Value Added Tax thereon and any expenses incurred in respect of the lot or lots. 14. The Auctioneer’s current standard notices and information (i.e. Collation and Amendments) will apply to any contract with the Auctioneer as if incorporated herein. 15. These conditions shall be governed by and construed in accordance with English Law.
