On 1 May, following the king’s request for assistance against the Dutch occupation, a small squadron led by Cornish had gained access to Trinconomalee harbour under the pretext of carrying out repairs, and Pybus was covertly set ashore with the aim of persuading the king to grant access to a harbour on the Bay of Bengal, a matter of great strategic importance while the Dutch still controlled Trinconomalee. Cornish describes in some detail the results of a survey of the south side of Trinconomalee harbour and outlines its advantages over Batticaloa as a position for a British fort. With hesitation he agrees to an apparent request to undertake a similar survey of Batticaloa, albeit ‘under the pretence of procuring refreshments’, warning that any activity in Batticaloa is likely to alarm the Dutch ‘as they had received orders from their Company not to suffer any communication whatever with the natives’, and adding that ‘a settlement there would be entirely dependent on the Dutch while they continue to possess the Fort’. A few months later Cornish served as joint commander of the victorious British forces at the Battle of Manila (SeptemberOctober 1762). Pybus’s account of the mission was later published at Colombo in 1862. (1) £300-500

821* Horne & Co Plate Camera. 19th-century mahogany plate camera by Horne & Co, 123 & 121 Newgate Street, London (Fallon Horne, 1814-1858) designed for 4 1/2 x 6 3/4 inch glass negatives, brass lens with rack and pinion focus control mounted to front panel, overall dimensions 42cm x 24cm x 28cm, two of the four retaining screws on the front are missing, large brass carrying handle on one side Fallon Horne, William Thornthwaite and Edward Wood had been employees of, or suppliers to, a scientific supply shop that was operated by Edward Palmer. The trio bought up the bulk of Palmer’s stock upon his retirement from that trade in August 1844. The trio began trading at 123 Newgate Street, London in September 1844 and expanded into 121 Newgate Street in 1850. The company moved to 3 Holborn Viaduct in 1874 so this camera more than likely dates from the 1850-1870 period. (1) £200-300

823* Voigtlander Petzval Camera Lens. Early Petzval portrait plate-camera lens made by Voigtlander & Sohn circa 1857, engraved “No 5518, Voigtlander & Sohn in Wien und Braunsweig”, no aperture control or Waterhouse stops, lens elements mounted either side with two metal rings in the centre of the barrel, rack and pinion focusing design (controls missing), brass housing with barrel diameter of 100mm (3 7/8 inches), removable brass lens hood with front diameter of 112mm (4 7/16 inches) and thread diameter of 93mm (3 11/16 inches), brass lens cap included, visible lens diameter approximately 78mm (3 1/8 inch), total lens length including lens hood 195mm (7 9/16 inches) and 160mm (6 5/16 inches) without lens hood, mounted on wooden end plate measuring 15cm x 15.5cm (6 inches x 6 1/4 inches), overall weight 2,391 kg The Voigtländer objectives were revolutionary because they were the first mathematically calculated precision objectives in the history of photography, developed by the German-Hungarian mathematics professor Josef Maximilian Petzval, with technical advice provided by Peter Voigtländer. Petzval calculated for the first time the composition of the lenses based on optical laws, whereas optics before had previously been ground and polished according to experience. Petzval’s design was 22 times more powerful which for the first time, under favourable conditions, enabled portraits with exposure times of less than a minute. Voigtländer went on to produce the first Petzval portrait photographic lens (the fastest lens at that time: f/3.6) in 1840, and the world’s first all-metal daguerreotype camera (Ganzmetallkamera) in the same year, also bringing out photographic plate cameras shortly afterwards.

GODFREY DICKSON TANNER (1876-1964) Little is known about the life and photographic career of Godfrey Dickson Tanner. He appears to have come from Lewes, Sussex, and was based for a long period at Regent House, Simla, India, possibly working as a stationer. He seems to have been a Captain in the Royal Engineers in World War One, then marrying Rose Bowman in 1919. In later years he lived in Nairobi, Kenya, where he worked as a municipal servant. Tanner travelled widely and had a good eye for photographing indigenous people and scenes, printing meticulously with the gelatin silver bromide process, sometimes sepia-toned. The majority of photographs appear to have been taken in the early decades of the 20th century, and while the albums are well presented, there are no dates and there is no discernible ordering of prints in many of the albums. Tanner’s work may have been published in Amateur Photographer and similar publications but it is startling to realise that his name as a photographer is completely unknown, though that may be because the photographs offered here represent his complete archive.

Elsie sits in the garden as a gnome dances towards her. At the time, this photograph provoked a bizarre public discussion. If studied closely, the point of a hat pin in the gnome’s stomach - used to keep the cut-out standing - can be seen. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, after examining the print, concluded that this pin point was a navel - sparking a discussion on methods of birth in the fairy kingdom. (1) £700-1000

922* Cottingley Fairies. Alice and the Fairies, photograph of Frances ‘Alice’ Griffiths, (1907-1986), taken by Elsie Wright (19011988), July, 1917, sepia gelatin silver print, 15 x 20cm, original mount with printed caption beneath First in the series of five Cottingley Fairies photographs, a hoax that deceived a number of eminent figures, most notably Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. The story of the Cottingley Fairies began as a practical joke in Cottingley, near Bradford, West Yorkshire in 1917 and the fairies were actually drawings by Elsie, secured in the ground with hat pins. It was a secret the girls decided to keep until the 1980s to protect the public reputations of those who believed in the ‘truth’ of the images. Alice was probably the name given to Frances by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859-1930) in an attempt to conceal the girls’ identities when he published the photographs. (1) £700-1000

(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 20% of the hammer price. Where the lot is marked by an asterisk the premium will be subject to VAT at 20% 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 20% 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.
