The last copy we can find recorded for sale in an auction was 1937. No institutional copies found, although the Library of Congress holds a pilot of fifteen maps with a different title. Examples of a few of the maps contained in this volume are held by the Biblioteca Nacional de Madrid and the British National Archives but no complete example appears to exist. Admiral Philip Affleck was Rear Admiral of the White and Commander in Chief of his Majesty’s naval contingent in Jamaica and Bermuda between 1789 and 1792. During his time in command Affleck undertook a comprehensive marine survey of Jamaica and its surroundings. He was assisted by John Leard and William Buller. Affleck did produce a very rare 115 page nautical guide titled ‘Sailing directions for the island of Jamaica and St. Domingue, or Hispaniola, and the windward passages; to be used with the charts and plans that are published from surveys and observations, made by order of Philip Affleck .... in part of the years 1789, 1790, 1791, and part of 1792 ... prepared with the assistance of Leard in 1792’. Two examples appear to survive: one in the collection of the American Philosophical Society and the other in the National Archives of Australia. This pilot may be part of that larger work. Provenance: French ‘Long-Cours’ Captain Auguste Booquet belonged to the elite master mariners of the sailing world, who undertook the long course or long haul route around Cape Horn in pursuance of their trade. The title was not introduced until 1825. It is possible that this pilot was acquired by a French man of war during the Napoleonic wars. (1) £3000-5000

The central argument in Principles, and one that had a notable influence on the young Charles Darwin, was that ‘the present is the key to the past’ and that geological remains from a distant past can be explained by reference to observable geological processes now in operation.

It gives an account of the distribution and succession, palaeontology and economic geology of the rocks of South Wales, the Welsh Borders, and the western Cotswold Hills. The chapters dealing with the Mesozoic and Upper Palaeozoic rocks added details to a story that was well known by 1839, the year of publication. But the chapters on the fossiliferous rocks below the Old Red Sandstone, which Murchison named the Silurian System, opened to view the sequence of rocks and fossils of this ancient epoch of Earth history for the first time. These chapters are still an important reference for the geologist and palaeontologist today.” (Thackray). (2) £3000-5000

221 Europe. Onwhyn (Tom), Treaty Map, published Rock Brothers & Payne, April 20th, 1856, etched allegorical map with contemporary hand colouring, old folds, two small marginal closed tears, retaining pictorial paper wrappers with description key to verso of upper cover, upper cover detached, covers a little soiled and frayed, 485 x 620mm Rare anamorphic map celebrating the Treaty of Paris which was signed on 30th March 1856 and which formally ended the Crimean War. The Russian Bear lifts its paw (which is streaming with blood) away from the Crimean peninsula. The bear’s body is covered with the words ‘tyrrany’, ‘oppression’, ‘treachery’, ‘bigotry’ and ‘ignorance’. However along its back is the notice ‘Russian hide, wants more tanning’. Onwhyn clearly thinks little of the treaty as he shows Britannia’s sword bound with ‘red tape’ and her lion with an eye-patch. Other European countries fare little better. Italy is depicted as a mad dog in convulsions, being strangled by a collar labelled ‘popery’. Poland is depicted as a gravestone with ‘Defunct nationality’ engraved upon it and Austria is a double headed ass. Prussia is an obeisant cur wearing the collar of the Czar with the ‘Very Petty German states’ tied to its tail.The map appears to be a follow on from Onwhyn’s 1854 map ‘Comic Map of the Seat of the War’ which was copied and also published in Belgium by Louis Mols-Marchal. Rod Barron in his blog of June 9th 2015 ;Clipping the Russian Bear’s claws...,’ describes the 1854 map and describes how, as the war progressed and casualties mounted that sentiment turned against treating the war as a subject for mirth and satire. It is perhaps surprising that Rock Brothers and Payne thought it appropriate to issue another map after what must have been considerable public opprobium. This may also explain why we have been unable to find a copy of this map appearing in auction or being held by an insitution. (1) £1000-1500

Charles William Stewart, later Vane, 3rd Marquess of Londonderry, (17781854) was a British soldier, politician and nobleman, the son (by his second wife) of the 1st Marquess of Londonderry, and half-brother to Lord Castlereagh. He had a highly distinguished career. Initially commissioned into the British Army as a Lieutenant at the age of 16, he saw service in Flanders in 1794, and was Lieutenant Colonel of the 5th Royal Irish Dragoons during the Irish Rebellion of 1798. He was elected to the Irish House of Commons as Tory representative for Thomastown, County Kilkenny two years later, and exchanged this seat for that of County Derry, representing the same constituency at Westminster after 1801. In 1803 Stewart was appointed aide-de-camp to King George III, and four years later became Under Secretary of State for War and the Colonies. In 1809 he was made Adjutant General to Sir John Moore with the British forces fighting in the Peninsular War. In 1813 he was made Colonel of the 25th Light Dragoons and until the end of the war was the Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary to Berlin, and also Military Commissioner with the allied armies. In 1814 he was made Ambassador to Vienna, a post he held for nine years, and was present at the Congress of Vienna with his half-brother Lord Castlereagh.

These reports and orders produced for 3 Commando Brigade Royal Marines appear to have belonged to Captain Alexander Higson, whose name appears in two of the items. The Suez Crisis was an invasion of Egypt by Israel, followed by the United Kingdom and France. Its aims were to regain Western control of the Suez Canal and to remove the Egyptian president Gamal Abdel Nasser from power. After the fighting had begun, political pressure from the United States, the Soviet Union and the United Nations led to a withdrawal by the three invaders. The Suez Canal was closed from October 1956 until March 1957. As a result of the conflict, the British prime minister Anthony Eden resigned. (5) £150-200

ARTIST'S RESALE RIGHT LAW ("DROIT DE SUITE") Lots marked with AR next to the lot number may be subject to Droit de Suite.

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.

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.
