Abbey, Travel, 312. Alexander Beatson (1759-1833) served for many years as an officer in the East India Company and was later governor of St. Helena between 1808 and 1813. The island, which then belonged to the East India Company, was in a very unsatisfactory condition when Beatson arrived there. The scanty population had been decimated by an epidemic of measles, and there was great discontent amongst those who remained, resulting in a mutiny in 1811. Beatson firmly brought the unrest under control and set about a better system of cultivation and many other beneficial measures. After his retirement and return to England, Beatson devoted his attention to running a farm near Tunbridge Wells, where he conducted numerous agricultural experiments. (1) £500-800

Smith I, 5. Rarely found in a publisher’s morocco binding. Little appears to be known about leather-bound editions of Dickens; it has been stated that copies of ‘Nicholas Nickleby’ were available in full morocco for the general public to purchase at a higher price than the cloth edition, although it has also been suggested that such volumes were produced exclusively as presentation copies for the author. The few morocco-bound copies which we have seen differ from the volume offered here, having gilt on the spine only, without the gilt vignette on the covers. Comte Alain de Suzannet had two such copies in his collection, which Dickens presented to William Macready and David Wilkie (Slater, The Catalogue of the Suzannet Charles Dickens Collection, 1975, A.8 & 45 respectively).

(The words announcing the “edition” are printed between the volume number and the imprint.) In all five issues, the same misprints persist. The genuine second edition was the one-volume “Library Edition” which Chapman and Hall published in 1862.’ The rarity of the first issue of ‘Great Expectations’ has been attributed to it being almost entirely taken up by libraries. It is believed that 1000 copies of the first issue and 750 of the second were printed, and that probably most of the first and more than half of the second were purchased by Mudie’s Select Library.

THE ANTIQUARIAN LIBRARY OF EMERITUS PROFESSOR DAVID A. PAILIN

This fine collection of antiquarian books relating to the Philosophy of Religion was assembled by Professor Pailin (University of Manchester) over a period of almost forty years as a working library. It provides a comprehensive survey of thought about the nature and content of faith in this period. Major works and treatises on the subject are present, as well as lesser-known texts, including items on moral philosophy, arguments about deism, collected works, critical works, plus bound volumes of tracts and pamphlets. The majority of the works, which total some 1,180 items, are in English, and a number of the books are extremely scarce. Condition is mostly good, with repairs having been carried out where necessary in a sympathetic manner. 'My collection of antiquarian books started accidentally. One or two volumes were given to me by relatives (including Samuel Clarke’s Three Practical Discourses, 1721). John Robinson’s Observations Divine and Morall, 1625, was acquired in the early 1960s when I was one of several Methodist ministers who were invited to take a few volumes from the library of a recently deceased Church member. I took this volume because its author shared the name of the then somewhat notorious Bishop of Woolwich, thinking that, if opportunity arose, I could tease people by quoting ‘John Robinson’: it was many years later that I discovered that the earlier John Robinson had been pastor to the Pilgrim Fathers in Leiden. The collected works of John Wesley in sixteen volumes (1810-1821) came from the same source. I bought the four-volume collected works of John Locke (1768) because it seemed useful for me to have at hand the text of his Essay concerning Human Understanding while I was completing a thesis on Newman’s Grammar of Assent. It was only in the second half of the 1960s that the collection started to have a focus, even if a somewhat fuzzy one. On being appointed to an Assistant Lectureship in the Philosophy of Religion (a position so lowly that it was soon abolished), I started work on a doctoral thesis. While the original aim of the thesis was to examine how major nineteenth and twentieth-century philosophers and theologians had understood the logic and content of theological assertions in response to fundamental questions posed by the works of David Hume and Immanuel Kant, I began by enquiring into the background of their works in the theological debates about the relationship between faith, belief and reason that took place in the preceding decades, starting with the views of Locke. Eventually this study became so extensive that it formed the subject of the thesis. I examined how some argued that belief must be limited to what rational reflection alone can determine and others that belief may extend beyond those limits by including the content of rationally authenticated revelations, while yet others, in contrast, cast religious, theological and philosophical doubts on the competence of reason in such matters. While I had access to a good library in the university, it was much more convenient to have the books that I wanted to study carefully at home. Accordingly, as opportunity arose, I began to buy books relevant to the debates about faith and reason from the end of the seventeenth to the start of the nineteenth century (i.e. the period from Locke to William Paley).'

George Edmund Street (1824-1881) is considered by many to be one of the greatest Gothic Revival architects in Europe. As a young man he was first apprenticed to an architect in Winchester, and then to Sir George Gilbert Scott in 1844. Just four years later, Street left to establish his own practice, which was known particularly for the many church commissions carried out in Britain and abroad. Street’s most celebrated secular work, the Law Courts in London, was begun in 1866, and he is recorded as having made 3000 drawings for the project, leaving his son to finish the building after his death. Street’s office played a pivotal role in the Arts and Crafts Movement; both Philip Webb and William Morris worked with him as did Richard Norman Shaw and both Seddings. Like Pugin, Butterfield, Scott and Burges, Street was interested in the building as a complete entity, and designed, amongst other things, furniture, textiles, stained glass and metalwork, as well as tiles. One of Street’s most important restoration commissions was the refurbishment of Christ Church Cathedral in Dublin between 1871 and 1878. This restoration scheme was funded by vast sums of money donated by local distiller Henry Roe, making it possible to pave the whole floor with tiles of every description; Street’s designs for the project were subsequently exhibited at the Paris Exhibition of 1878.

This collection comes from the estate of the late Sheila Rose (1929-2012) and includes one original pen and ink sketch of four children (sheet size 10 x 19 cm) discovered being used as a bookmark in the 1930 volume of Punch. Sheila was one of the best pony book illustrators of the post-war period, her style instantly recognisable, quite spare and swiftly drawn. She had the rare ability to draw both horses and people equally well. Born in Bishop's Stortford on September 26th 1929, she was educated at Hitchin Grammar School and Harrogate College. She started riding her own ponies and drawing them when she was four, and 'competed at all shows in Hertfordshire between 1940 and 1945 (according to her entry in Who's Who in the Pony Magazine Annual 1968). She illustrated her first book in 1949 and was highly prolific during the 1950s and 60s. She moved to Rome c. 1964/5 where she remained for the rest of her life, having very little contact with her family during this period. (3 shelves) £150-200

Every photograph is accompanied by a signed certificate of authenticity from Norka Korda, recording the provenance, along with the lot number, title, vintage and sale date. "The photographs by my father Alberto Korda, offered here, formed part of my personal collection, and were acquired at various times over several decades. When I was still very small, my father left two cases full of photographs at home, and for some years my favourite game and many days of my childhood were passed looking at them one by one, caught up in their magic and magnetism. Others appeared over time, and on occasions my father gave them to me as gifts saying: "Keep them daughter, this will be history one day!" On other occasions I know that I asked for them and he never said no - it could be a single image or several, always it was left for me to choose I noted that the interest that I took in his work made him happy. On 14th March 1968 his files were confiscated, he only recovered bits and pieces, and up to today they remain held in the National Archives of Cuba in Havana. My father maintained the right to use them every time that he was required to make prints. For many years I was able to see how he made copies in his darkroom and to see with my own eyes the negatives and the magic of developing." (Norka Korda, February 2013).

"These are extremely scarce images, the original negatives disappeared, when in March 1968 they confiscated my father's photographic archive. Thus it is an invaluable work bearing in mind that it was the beginning of his career and a period which formed him as an artist with a personal vision of photographic art. Therefore in my view, and that of some of his critics, it is a body of work of much aesthetic value" (Norka Korda).

On what attracted him to photography in the first place Alberto Korda told Mark Sanders:

“I have to say the women. I wanted to become a famous fashion photographer because that way I would be able to meet the most beautiful women in Cuba” (Alberto Korda, p. 428) 786* Korda (Alberto, 1928-2001).

“My real name is Alberto Diaz Gutierrez. This surname is extremely common in Cuba and in those days the most popular photographic products were Kodak’s. I also saw an English film directed by the Korda brothers, Alexander and Zoltan. I thought the surname Korda sounded like Kodak so I named the studio after them and it worked. It was easy for the art directors and advertising agencies to remember that there was a studio called Korda” (Alberto Korda, p. 428)

"At that time I was, and still am, an advocate of natural light. Almost 95% of all my photographs have been shot under natural light. In the early days I had to struggle for what I wanted. Often it would take six rolls to get the image I was looking for, but when I got it I knew what the print would look like even before I had developed it. In that way, I have always worked hard, and so I used to make my models work hard also” (Alberto Korda, p. 429)

“At the time my photography hero was Richard Avedon. I wanted to be the Cuban Avedon. For this, I knew I needed a woman who would fulfil my concept of fashion photography.

“[It] was a friend of mine who worked in advertising who first discovered Norka. He took her to my studio thinking she would make a wonderful model. When I first saw her she was incredibly shy, hiding her face against the wall and I took one photograph of her and realised that she was the woman I was looking for. At the time she was 18 or 19 years old … later she became my wife, and we had two children together [including the vendor Norka]” (Alberto Korda, p. 429)

‘Korda’s photographs of women (especially those of Norka) went far beyond the requirements of the publicity of these times. There are portraits of the model, each one different, not because of the type of garment they featured but because of the characterisation the photographer and model achieved in each situation. They represent the dramatic capacity of the model to coincide with the mise en scene directed by the photographer. It is difficult to tell where the model ends and where the advertising of the garment she wears begins.’ (Alberto Korda, pp. 327-328)

These fishing photographs were taken on the 14th May 1960, second day of the Hemingway Tournament, to which Che and other friends were invited by Fidel to accompany him on board his boat. The tournament's origins went back to 1950 when the writer Ernest Hemingway took part. A group of fishermen proposed that the tournament be named after the famous writer, for the affection and passion that he felt for this recreational sport. Hemingway not only accepted, but donated the cup for the first three tournaments. Hemingway won the tournament from 1953 to 1955. Hemingway returned in 1960 to carry off the prize for the 11th International Hemingway Tournament, where he met with the leader of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro.

Between 1959 and 1969 Korda was a correspondent for the magazine Revolucion. It is the era of his great photojournalism and for his photographs of Fidel, Che and the other leaders of the Revolution. Unlike many official photographers, Korda never portrays Castro as leader, but as a human being ... "and that was relatively easy to achieve, since there weren't others following him and photographing him on his day-to-day activities", Korda said respectfully. Perhaps the best known photo of Castro in Cuba taken by Korda, is that in which he is standing on a mountain, in profile, with his backpack and rifle. It was taken during a tour by Castro in the Sierra Maestra. The photograph was produced as a poster by the tens of thousands that flooded the island with the slogan 'Commander in Chief, by order!' Korda has captioned and signed the mount for this photograph. 802* Korda (Alberto, 1928-2001). Comandante en jefe, ordene!

An iconic image and one of Castro’s favourite images of himself and one which he is seen admiring and reminiscing about alongside Korda and other Cuban revolution photographers in the documentary film KordaVision (2005, dir. Hector Cruz Sandoval). ‘In 1959 I was 31 years old and hungry as a wolf for images for my camera. Fidel asked me to join his staff which I did, giving my support by choosing the right moment (a moment suggested by Fidel prophecies) to make the photographs. We were not aware of what we are doing. Corrales and I both worshipped Fidel and Che, our idealism for a new Havana’, (Cuba Si!, p. 28). (1) £3000-5000

Alberto Korda has noted that Che Guevara was a very difficult man to photograph and that his famous portrait of Che Guevara, thought to be the most reproduced photograph in history, was a "lucky break". Korda actually only took photographs of Che on a handful of occasions. The golf tournament, the Nikaro mining series and the Zafra series are all represented here, including four lots of Korda photographs consigned by a friend of Norka Korda. Of the Zafra series Korda noted:

“Che was doing some tests with Alzadora, a new machine for cutting sugarcane that he had designed with a French engineer. When I found him, his face blackened with sweat and dust a bit puffed up with cortisone he was taking at the time, he looked at me with a mixture of irony and surprise. ‘Ah, you’re here Korda. Where did you come from originally – the town or the countryside?’ I replied: ‘Me? From Havana, Comandante’. He asked: ‘And have you ever cut sugarcane?’ and I had to reply: ‘Never!’. He turned towards one of his guards: ‘Alfonso, find a machete for the companero journalist’, and as he turned to me, he added: ‘As for photos, try again next week.’” (Cuba by Korda, p. 154)

Batteries of anti-aircraft guns were installed along the Malecon, Sea Front Avenue in Havana, near the hotels built by the North American mafia” (Cuba by Korda, pp. 108-09). On the 28th October 1962 the Soviet leader agreed to the American demands to withdraw arms from the island and J.F. Kennedy terminated the naval blockade and gave guarantees that the U.S. would not invade the Caribbean territory.

The interview was in French. When they left his office, the duty Sentry was asleep, his cap over his face.

Korda always considered his portrait of the girl with the wooden doll as the turning point in his career and this image remained his favourite of all his own photographs until his death in Paris in 2001. “It was about two months after the Revolution started that I made my first social intervention. My portrait of a young girl entitled La Nina de la Meneca de Palo was completed in 1959. An advertising agency had sent me to the countryside to photograph the farmers, and in the courtyard of a very poor house I found this girl. She was afraid of me and of the camera and was telling a wooden stick, “Don’t cry, my baby”. When I met the parents they told me that they couldn’t afford a proper doll for the girl. That made me think a lot and I remembered Fidel’s speech about the social reality of Cuba in which he said that girls without dolls would disappear with the Revolution. In that moment I decided that I would dedicate my life and work to the Revolution” (Interview with Mark Sanders, in Alberto Korda, p. 429). "My father was looking for locations to take fashion photos, and he found this girl, Paulina, close to a country dwelling in the settlement of Sumidero, municipality of Minas de Matahambre, in the province of Pinar del Rio. It became one of the five most important and iconic Korda photographs. It was published on the front page of a local newspaper, denouncing the poverty of the countryside and of the children that didn't have more than a stick of wood for a doll and a piece of paper to clothe them with. This image prompted the inhabitants Havana to buy masses of toys to send as presents to the children of rural Cuba. It was always my father's favourite." (Norka Korda, February 2013)

Little is known about the Dodo but paintings and written accounts appeared from the 17th century onwards, the first account written by Dutch sailors in 1598. It is believed that the readiness of food (fruit) and absence of predators on the island was a contributing factor to it becoming flightless, which ultimately led to its extinction as the bird became preyed upon by hungry sailors and their domesticated animals which had been introduced to the island. The last recorded sighting of the Dodo was in 1662 but fossil remains have enabled scientists to create a pattern of its size and weight, i.e. 3 ft 3 ins tall and 10-18 kg in weight. (1) ÂŁ3000-4000

A complete set of this lavishly illustrated work, being the first comprehensive flora of the East Indies. Many of the plants are here illustrated for the first time. The botanist Rheede tot Draakestein was governor of the Dutch colony of Malabar on the South West Coast of India from 1669 to 1676, and Chief Representative of the Dutch East India Company in India from 1684. The work was completed with the help of several colleagues in the field, including the Italian missionary Father Mattheus a St. Joseph, who produced many of the drawings. Their work was sent back to Holland, where the botanical scholars Jan Commelin and Arnold Steyn added notes and assisted in its publication. Each plate is inscribed with the plant name in Latin, Malabarese, Arabic and ancient Brahmin. Provenance: Bookplate of Robert Lumley Lloyd (1666-1729) of Cheam, Surrey, Rector of St. Paul’s, Convent Garden, and Chaplain to the Duke and Dowager Duchess of Bedford, and a keen botanist whose gardens at Cheam were highly regarded. Extensive annotations to first and last few leaves of the first and thirteenth volumes, by Peter Collinson FRS, with some additional notes by Michael Collinson, and several mounted botanical samples (with captions) of exotic plants and trees. Peter Collinson (1694-1768) was a gardener and natural scientist, particularly known for his correspondence with Benjamin Franklin concerning electricity. Collinson provides a lengthy biographical notice of his friend Lumley Lloyd to the front endpapers of the first volume, ‘These books of the Hortus Malabaricus was the Legacy of my Dear Friend Docr. Lumley Lloyd D.D. of Cheam in Surry ... he was from his youth a great Lover of Flowers & Rare Plants, he told mee when he was a young studient at Cambridge about the year 1686 that he purchased from Holland three or four seeds of the Narsturtium Indicum ... at half a crown each, being then a great rarity for it came from India but two years before, he was so impatient to see it flower that he would not stirr out of Doors least it should Blow in his Absence. He well remembered and could name all the striped flowers Auriculas that was to purchased when he was a Lad att the 12 or 14th year of his age ... He told mee a long detail of the Gardners he purchased them off & that he valued no brick for a new flower - he told mee the original or mother of all the fine Auriculas that was then in being was Raised from the Seed of an Auricula named Blinds: Cream after the name of a Gardner at Mortlack that first produced it from seed, it was a flower that had good properties and was in request in my memory, but now anno 1746 I question if it is allowed a place in the pott or is to be found; Mr. Potter, Gardner at Micham had the greatest success in raising surprising fine Flowers from Seed with whome the Docr. laid out considerably every year notwithstanding he raised great many every year ... He with Mr. Potter’s assistance raised annually an infinite variety of most charming flowers & tulips he had almost without number produced from seed & breeders. So great was his love for this flower, of which he had the finest I ever saw in any collection - that he had two long and high iron frames which inclosed Two Beds Each, with a Walk in the Middle, this was all Coverd with Canvas to screen the Tulips from the Sun, it was very agreeable viewing them in the Heat of the day under this shade. These Two Iron Frames cost Eighty Pounds - all the Ranunculas & Anemony Beds had Lower Wood Frames & Canvas coverings. He spared No Expence to prolong His Favourite Flowers… My Valuable Friend was for greatest part of his Life sadly affected with the Gout, but when he could no longer bear being wheeld about his Garden in a Little Coach, so great was his Love for his darling amusement, he had his plants & flowers brought into his Library which was finely ornamented with them'.

Conditions of Sale and Business 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.

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.

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.

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.

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 the Auctioneer for inclusion in his auction sales each seller acknowledges that he/she accepts and agrees to all the conditions.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Postage can be arranged for most purchases.

All framed and glazed items and all lots for overseas customers outside Europe will be sent to Mail Boxes Etc. (tel: Swindon 01793 525009) or R.F. Shipping (tel: London 0845 873 6240).

The nearest train station to the saleroom is Kemble (BR) which is on the London (Paddington) to Worcester Shrub Hill line. Train journey times from London are on average 90 minutes whether direct or with one change, and run at about one per hour from early until late. Several of the trains in each direction are direct and about half the services require a brief change at Swindon.
