They became the first Europeans to reach the sources of the Jumna and Ganges rivers.

To the residents of the Orange River Colony. Whereas following a proclamation issued on 1st June 1900 that all persons bearing arms against Her Majesty in the Orange River Colony would be regarded as rebels, and whereas it was ordered that all arms and ammunition should be surrendered; Now therefore I, Frederick Sleigh, Baron Roberts of Kandahar..., published Bloemfontein, 1900, broadsheet poster, old folds with fraying, some chipping and fraying to margins with slight loss, professionally restored, slight spotting, backed with archival tissue, on the verso is a contemporary note in blue pencil ‘taken out of a deserted Boer farm’, 630 x 505mm, offered with Herfst (J.J.),Post Kaart van den Oranje Vrijstaat, published W.A.Wright, Bloemfontein, circa 1900, lithographic map, old folds with fraying and slight loss, margins and old folds strengthened on verso, 400 x 450mm

£1000-1500

This proclamation was one of many issued during the Boer Wars and this example was published during the second phase of the second Boer War, two days before Roberts considered the war over and England victorious. History proved him to be overly optimistic as a vicious guerilla war continued for another two years (the third phase). The Orange Free State had been annexed on May 28th 1900 and renamed the Orange River Colony. The stipulations of the proclamation can be seen as a prelude to Kitchener’s ‘scorched earth’ policy which was ruthlessly activated during phase three. (2) £100-200

336 Egypt and Middle East. Michalet (Etienne), Les Deserts d’Egypte de Thabaide d’Arabie de Sirie &c..., published Paris, 1693, large engraved map with contemporary outline colouring, 565 x 765mm This fascinating map of the Holy Land is unusually focused on the lives of early Christian anchorites. These ascetics would retreat into the deserts of Egypt and Syria to remove themselves from human society, and then choose a location to spend the rest of their lives in solitary devotion. The map is covered with small detailed vignettes with accompanying inscriptions of their lives. It covers the Middle East from Libya to Syria, and is oriented to the northwest. Near Antioch stands the pillar of Saint Simeon Stylites, who spent thirty-six years in solitary prayer on the top. Next to Tabenna in the upper Nile region Saint Pachomius sits facing a semicircle of other hermits. He had been inspired to go there to found a lavra, an early form of monastery for those not suited to a solitary ascetic life. Further down the Nile the journeys of Saint Helena of Constantinople are recorded. The mother of the Emperor Constantine was sent by her son to visit the Holy Places in Palestine to collect relics, and founded several churches and monasteries including the Church of the Nativity. The ships sailing across the Mediterranean record the legend of Hilarion, an anchorite who was forced to retire to Cyprus after his original cell near Gaza became a tourist destination. The inscription tells of how he helped to repel a pirate attack on the fort which was built near the site of his new home on Cyprus. On the left shore of the Red Sea is the voyage of Saint Anthony the Great to find Saint Paul of Thebes, after having a dream that Paul was a better hermit than he. The map shows his encounters with a centaur and satyr, his eventual meeting with Paul and Pauls death soon after, with the two lions who helped to dig his grave.On the right of the map in Syria the story of Saint Malchus is shown, an enslaved man who refused to consummate the marriage forced on him incaptivity to preserve his vow of chastity. He and his wife eventually escaped using inflated goatskins as a raft and were saved by a lioness who killed their pursuers, and were both eventually able to retire to monastic houses. Lower down, in the desert by the River Jordan, is the story of Saint Mary of Egypt, a sexually active young woman who was barred from entering the Church of the Holy Speulchre by an invisible force, which only ceased after she repented and promised to live in the desert as penitence for her earlier sins. She was met in the desert by Saint Zosimas of Palestine, who lent her his mantle and gave her Holy Communion, which she walked across the river to obtain. E.Laor. Maps of the Holy Land, no.496.

R.W.Shirley. Early Printed Maps of the British Isles, 1477 - 1650, no.537. Often called ‘The Quartermaster’s Map’, Sheets 1, 2, 4 & 5 are from 1676 and sheets 3 & 6 from the1688 state.The map aquired its moniker owing to its usefulness to ‘all Commanders for Quarteringe of Souldiers, & all sorts of Persons, that would be informed, Where the Armies be; never so Commodiously drawne before this.’ It was used widely during the English Civil War particularly by the Parliamentarians with whom the publisher Thomas Jenner’s sympathies lay. Jenner was a print and map seller who set up in business at the White Bear in Cornhill about 1618. Until the impending Civil War Jenner was not known for cartographic material. Then in 1643 he published a revised edition of the ‘Direction for the English Traviller’ whose plates he had acquired from his printer Matthew Simmons. Jenner had timed his move perfectly. The demand for maps to help the large numbers of people moving about the country at the time of the Civil War was on the increase. The market for the little atlas clearly proved so great that he was attracted to do more. He engaged the services of the noted engraver Wenceslaus Hollar to etch a reduction of Christopher Saxton’s great wall map of 1583, therby enabling his customers to have a more detailed and yet still portable map of England and Wales. Its sucess can be measured by how often it was re-printed; however its portability probably resulted in the destruction of most examples and complete copies such as this example are rare.

From the late 1770’s the map was updated to include surveys compiled by Governor George Pownall.

‘Having established a noumenal foundation for electrodynamic phenomena, Ampere’s next steps were to discover the relationships between the phenomena and to devise a theory from which these relationships could be mathematically deduced.

In this work, the Principia of electrodynamics, Ampere first described the laws of action of electric currents..’ (DSB). Ampere presented the work to the Academic des Sciences in 1823, and it was printed, under the title “Memoire sur la theorie mathematique des phenomenes Electro-dynamiques”, on pp. 177387 of Vol. VI of the Memoires de l’Academie des Sciences. ‘As Vol. VI was the volume for 1823 this date appears on the first page of each signature as an identifying mark for the printer; the whole volume, however, was not published until late in 1827... In the meantime the author’s separate was prepared; the last twelve pages were reset and extended to eighteen; the work was repaginated and re-signed; and the ‘1823’ was removed from lower margins (except on sig. 21 where it remained on all copies and on sig. 12 where, together with the original periodical pagination, it remained in a few copies, but was corrected during printing).

634* Hall-Edwards (John, 1858-1926). An early x-ray photograph of a woman’s hand with two rings and a bracelet, no date, gelatin silver print photograph from an x-ray, signed in ink ‘J. HallEdwards’ diagonally lower right, 22 x 20cm, mounted on thick card Major Dr John Hall-Edwards was the British pioneer of x-ray treatment. For several years before the announcement of Roentgen’s discovery, he had been engaged on experiments in the application of electricity to surgery. When the Roentgen rays were known, he devoted himself to experiments, but in 1908 he had to have his left arm amputated owing to the spread of x-ray dermatitis (now preserved by the Chamberlain Museum of Pathology at the University of Birmingham). He also had to have several fingers on his right hand amputated before his death in 1926. He was one of the earliest investigators of the rays in the country, and the first radiograph for the purposes of an operation in the United Kingdom, was taken by him on 14th February 1896. Among his many interests were art and photography, for which he won many medals. (1) £200-300

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.

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.
