The Dogs do Bark!, also published Verlag U Druck, Hamburg, 1914, colour litho. propaganda poster, with title repeated in German, descriptive text below image in English and German, old folds, professionally repaired with archival tissue to verso, 530 x 665mm A clever piece of English propoganda showing John Bull with the British Navy held under control on long leashes, while the British Bulldog has the German Dachshund by its nose. The French poodle snarls at Germany whilst a Russian bear together with a Steam roller with the Czar at the Wheel rumbles towards Europe from the East. Other countries are parodied according to their perceived national characteristics. The poster was published in England and then reproduced in Germany to underline apparent English jingoism and zenophobia. The last paragraph of the descriptive text reads ‘All this, and more may be seen depicted above. Search well and you may find many things. But not Piece. Peace has gone to the Dogs for the present - until a satisfactory muzzle has been found for that Dachshund. Meanwhile the Dachshund’s heart bleeds for Belgium, and his nose for Great Britain.’ Uncommon. (1) £300-500

It implies that having defeated and humiliated Germany the four dominant world powers should now allow the citizens of their respective territories and dominions the right of self determination. The text translates as ‘What would remain of the Entente if it took seriously the ‘self-determination right’ of its own nations and let go of the leash!’. German cant certainly, so soon after the end of the world war; but a legitimate question which would bedevil all four nations throughout the 20th century. Uncommon. (1) £200-300

Germany stretches into France and seizes its shoulder. Russia - with its huge open mouth - clutches a vodka bottle and the whip of revolution and looks ready to devour its neighbours. Italy remains tucked well down in its ‘boot’. Great Britain stands on bags on money whilst the British Bulldog appears to be being strangled by the snake of India as Ireland attempts to cut the chain which links it to the mainland. An inset map of Japan which Great Britain appears to have ‘caught’ implies that we have dragged Japan into the war. Turkey looks the other way and is shown drowsily smoking a pipe. The map is crammed with numerous subtle references to national sterotypes and historical events. Uncommon. (1) £300-500

It is a very painful decision that has had to be taken... we were on the verge of a financial crisis which, if not dealt with within the space of a few days, would have meant not cuts of ten percent., or anything of that kind, in unemployment pay, but would have disorganised the whole of our financial system, with the most dire results to the mass of the working classes', and continuing to justify his decision which is for the overall good of the country and the Labour Party's longer term future, the second letter (2nd September 1931), thanking for Aitchison for his 'personal confidence', telling of great support in the Party, but there also is an even greater issue, 'can Democratic Leaders lead in a crisis, can they face up to the temporary unpopularity of telling Democracy the truth, welded into an effective instrument, and not leave it a mere drifting crowd, living on superficialities and swaying hither and thither towards slackness of body and mind and finally destruction?', the remaining letters mostly of a friendly and personal nature thanking him for books (Edward Thomas, George Moore, 'I quite agree with you as regard its typography; it is worthy of the best Scottish examples'), regretting their infrequent get togethers, etc., a total of 14 pp., 4to, all but one with orig. envelope, plus two related letters, one on behalf of MacDonald, 29 August 1931, sending a copy of a letter of thanks to the Prime Minister from King George V (copy included), plus a letter from MacDonald's son Malcolm and two Ramsay MacDonald Christmas cards (1934 & 1935), both uninscribed and unsigned)

During 1931 the economic situation had deteriorated and there was strong pressure from orthodox economists for sharp cuts in government spending. Although there was a narrow majority in the Cabinet for drastic reductions in spending there was an unworkable split.

Terry Bennett, History of Photography in China: Western Photographers 18611879 (2010), pp. 303-308: ‘The China Magazine, edited by C. Langdon Davies, contained photographs by John Thomson, Henry Cammidge, Milton Miller and others. It was undoubtedly the inspiration behind John Reddie Black’s better known ‘Far East’, which ran from 1870 until 1878. Apart from containing a number of photographs unpublished elsewhere, the ‘China Magazine’ contains interesting feature articles which throw light on life in mid nineteenth-century China, Hong Kong in particular’. The magazine began as a weekly publication on 7th March 1868 and then monthly until it reached its fourth and final volume in 1870. Bennett suggests that this may be the first publication of any kind in the Far East to incorporate pasted-in photographs before noting its extreme rarity: The Carl A. Kroch Library, Cornell University, owns the only known complete set (27 issues in four volumes), Bennett himself owning a near-complete set, lacking only eight leaves from volume 1 and the two issues from 1870. Other libraries cited that own one or two volumes only are Birmingham Public Library, National Library of Scotland, Cambridge University Library, Peabody Museum, SUNY at Buffalo and Yale University. It would appear that the only copies to have appeared at auction have been all vol. 2 [Monthly Miscellany, 1868] with up to twenty-four photographs including three credited to Thomson, whose involvement was clearly short-lived. The present volume contains a total of forty-six photos of varying sizes, plus four duplicates and one defective photo, from a grand total of [?]ninety-one photos, and is therefore the largest group to so far appear at auction. Image sizes vary, with the images generally being larger in vols. 3 and 4. Most images have some fading and occasional blemishes. The title-pages to vols. [1] and [3] are titled ‘Midsummer Volume’, 1868, and ‘Midsummer 1869’. Sold as a periodical not subject to return. (1) £2000-3000

The Central China floods of 1931 were a series of floods that are generally considered among the deadliest natural disasters ever recorded, with estimates of the death toll varying wildly between the more conservative local estimates of 145,000, to Western sources suggesting a toll of between 3.7 and 4 million people. Some of the areas affected included Hubei, Hunan, Jiangxi, Hankou, Wuhan, Hanyang and Chongqing. The high-water mark was reached on 19 August at Hankou, with the water level exceeding 53 feet (16 metres) above normal. Comparatively, this is an average of 5.6 feet (1.7 metres) above the Shanghai Bund. On the evening of 25 August 1931, the water rushing through the Grand Canal washed away dikes near Gaoyou Lake. Some 200,000 people drowned in their sleep in the resulting deluge. A Commission was soon set up to investigate flood control and eventually plans were drawn up for the Three Gorges dam project which then lay in mothballs until the modern era: The project was restarted in the 1980s and the hydroelectric Three Gorges Dam began full operation in 2012, becoming the world’s largest power station in terms of installed capacity at the time.

Five further volumes were produced and a complete series contains 600 stereoviews. However, various marketing techniques were employed to sell various permutations of part sets and the complete set of 600 is rarely found together. This first volume depicts Western Front 1914-15 (1-45), Somme 1916 (46-63), Aviation (64-71), Arras 1917 (72-79), 3rd Ypres 1917 (80-98) and Post-War Ypres (99-100). This first set contains the only stereoviews that Realistic Travels’ founder, Hilton DeWitt Girdwood, is known to have photographed (nos. 1-33). This first set is the only one to be arranged chronologically and as it contains post-war Ypres it is likely it was produced after the war. Interestingly, the battlefield images (nos. 23-25), those supposedly of the first battle of Ypres are actually photographs of a training ground. There are no bodies with wounds, evidence of artillery and no individual with a stereo camera would have been so close to an assault where the enemy was climbing over the sandbags. (101) £150-200

(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 the Auctioneer 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.
