Provenance: by descent through the family. The recipient is recorded as having been severely wounded on the 18th June 1855, on which day the British made their first unsuccessful assault on the Redan battery. The only part of the British force that was not repulsed was the 2nd Brigade of the 3rd Division under Major General William Eyre, in support on the left, which captured a cemetery at the foot of Picket House Ravine in a diversionary attack (McGuigan). Though it cannot be proved, it seems reasonable to suppose that this lead ball (preserved with the medals by the family) is that which struck down Captain Godley on that day.
part not to scale 5. A mounted group of dress miniature medals, comprising: Distinguished Service Order, China 1900 with Relief of Pekin clasp, 1914-15 Star, British War and Victory Medals (oak leaves), French Legion d’Honneur, French Croix de Guerre (palms), Messina Earthquake Commemorative Medal 1908, the presence of the latter indicating a Royal Naval recipient; together with a Memorial Plaque, WALTER EDWARD HAMLIN, in card envelope with commiseration slip. Good very fine or better. £80-120 The Messina earthquake of 1908 was a calamitous occurrence that all but destroyed the cities of Messina and Reggio, and caused vast loss of life. An international relief effort was lauched, and particular assistance was rendered by the war ships of various nations, including Great Britain, that were in the area at the time. King Victor Emmanuel III issued this medal as a reward to the personnel involved. Walter Edward Hamlin, Machine Gun Corps (Motor), died in India, 10th October 1918.

The vital and sometimes overlooked contribution of test pilots to the 1939-45 war effort is well illustrated by the superb combination of a Distinguished Flying Cross with an Air Force Cross and Bar awarded to Squadron Leader (later Group Captain) Harry Alexander Purvis R.A.F. Accompanied by the recipient’s flying log books and his dress miniature medals, they represent part of the career of an extraordinarily courageous and skilful aviator. The A.F.C. was, of course, the natural reward for those fearless individuals who risked injury and death in the effort to develop vital aerial weaponry, in an era when the boundaries of aviation technology were being advanced with hazardous rapidity. Purvis was at the forefront of this work, and became one of only 26 men** in this period to be awarded the A.F.C. not once, but twice, as denoted by the bar.
It is further testament to the breadth of his wartime service that he was also awarded the D.F.C. - the reward for bravery whilst flying on active operations against the enemy. In late 1939 the RAF developed an aerial countermeasure to Nazi Germany’s magnetic influence sea mines, which posed a grave risk to our vital sea lanes. A Vickers Wellington (P2518) was fitted with a huge balsa wood hoop that housed a powerful electromagnetic coil. The intention was to fly low over the sea, so that the downward pointing magnetic field would detonate the mines lurking beneath the waves. ‘Bruin’ Purvis, having tested the functional capabilities of this unconventional aircraft, then took the further - and extremely hazardous - step of trialling its mine destroying ability in January 1940. The Operations Record Book for No.1 G.R. Unit, R.A.F. Manston, records that a mine was successfully destroyed on the 8th or 9th of that month and notes that ‘Aircraft’s Height was 25-30 feet’. Neither the possibility that the huge upsurge of water resulting from the explosion might bring the aircraft down, nor the interference of the enemy in later trials, were any deterrent to this steely nerved man. His remarkable story also includes the testing of prototype Spitfires, and in May 1942 he was posted to the Aeroplane and Aeronautical Experimental Establishment (A&AEE) at Boscombe down in Wiltshire. We are reminded of the dangerous nature of his work by the fact that his predecessor had been killed in a crash, and that “there had been so many fatal accidents…. that there was a need for a great personality to revive the general spirits of the comparatively inexperienced survivors.”*** Bruin Purvis, described at the time by Lieutenant Commander Denis Campbell F.A.A. (himself an operational and test pilot of great stature) as ‘the best pilot in the R.A.F.’, was just such a personality. Whilst testing the new Lancaster Mk VI in 1944, he suffered an engine fault that forced him to crash land. With consummate skill he avoided the destruction of life and property in the land below him, and preserved the lives of his crew, before strolling to his home (coincidentally nearby) and announcing to his wife “I was in Amesbury so I thought I would pop in for a cup of tea.” **** * Lieutenant Commander Denis Cambell quoted in ‘Men with Wings’ by Wing Commander H.P. ‘Sandy’ Powell A.F.C., A.F.R.Ae.S. ** Abbott & Tamplin, ‘British Gallantry Awards’ *** Wing Commander H.P. ‘Sandy’ Powell, ‘Men With Wings’ **** Derek Collier Webb, ‘Bruin Purvis, Test Pilot Extraordinary’

11. The Malayan Emergency M.M. group to Lieutenant (QGO) Dilman Rai, 1st Battalion 7th Gurkha Rifles: Military Medal, Elizabeth II, (21135681 A/L/CPL. DILMAN RAI. 7. G.

MM. 1/7 G.R.); Regular Army Long Service and Good Conduct, Elizabeth II, (LT. (QGO) M.M.), court mounted. Nearly extremely fine. £1,500-2,500 M.M.: London Gazette 30/10/53 The recommendation submitted by Lieutenant Colonel J.D.F. Curling O.B.E. (13/05/53) states: During the past year this NCO has been constantly out on jungle operations. Whenever Terrorists have been encountered he has always been the first to close with them and has personally killed four and wounded a number of others. not to scale On 27th October 1952 this NCO, with four riflemen of his section, was in an ambush position in the LABU area of NEGRI SEMBILAN, when an armed terrorist appeared. Knowing the importance of capturing a Terrorist alive, he permitted the Terrorist to approach right up to him, and then exposed himself in order to attempt the capture The Terrorist however managed to draw a grenade and had to be shot before he could throw it. The calm action of this NCO in deliberately exposing himself at point blank range in order to achieve a capture was a fine example of cool, calculated courage. On 13th January, 1953, this NCO was on patrol in the SEREMBAN District of NEGRI SEMBILAN with two men of his section when two Communist Terrorists were encountered at a range of one hundred yards. The Terrorists opened fire and the NCO immediately charged them and killed one. Seeing the second Terrorist escaping he at once gave chase and and after a running fight over three hundred yards succeeded in killing the second. One Rifle, one Shot gun, ammunition, rations and important documents were recovered. The success of this operation was entirely due to this NCO’s dash and personal courage in the direct face of enemy fire. The conduct of L/Cpl DILMAN RAI has at all times been of the highest order, and his courage and offensive spirit have been a magnificent example and inspiration to the men of his section and platoon.

STO..), offered with a small quantity of copy research. Nearly very fine £100-150 The story of H.M.S. Hampshire is well know to enthusiasts both of naval and of military history, as the maritime disaster that ended the life of Victorian hero Field Marshal Horatio Herbert Kitchener, 1st Earl Kitchener. On June 5th 1916, having been present at the Battle of Jutland, the Devonshire Class armoured cruiser received Kitchener as a passenger for Russia, where he was charged with a diplomatic mission. The same evening, in a force 9 gale, she struck a mine west of Orkney, and sank with the loss of all but twelve hands. One of the twelve, Alfred Read, was born 23rd October 1891, and enlisted in the navy 13th August 1912. According to a newpaper article written upon his death in 1957, he survived the sinking by clinging to a Carley Float, having lost sight of Lord Kitchener on the boat deck. On reaching the shore, he suffered permanent scarring from having to cling to barbed wire to avoid being swept out to sea again. The sinking of H.M.S. Hampshire provoked a variety of conspiracy theories, but Read himself favoured the simple explanation of a sea mine.

ÂŁ4,000-5,000 At the seminal action of June 1st 1794, Admiral Lord Howe's fleet essayed a departure from the Naval doctrine of the day, by turning toward the enemy line and engaging at close quarters. Although Howe's orders were imperfectly executed by his captains, the British inflicted a convincing tactical defeat on the French. The 74-gun HMS Valiant was built at Chatham and launched in 1758. With a main armament of 30-24pdrs., she was -like all the other '74's' - a mainstay of the fleet throughout the second half of the 18th century. Her long service life involved several major refits, the last of which was completed in March 1794, just in time for her to see action at the Glorious First of June, the first fleet action of the French Revolutionary War. Acquitting herself well under Captain Thomas Pringle, she participated in the next major action against the French, at the Isle de Groix, on 23rd June 1795, before being sent to the West Indies the following year. After two lively encounters there, both of which resulted in enemy vessels captured or destroyed, she came home in 1799 and was laid up that autumn for use as a lazarette. Surviving another quarter-century, she was finally broken up in 1826 after a career spanning almost seventy years.

70. The murder of Wolf Myers by John Curtis 1767, an engraved coin, a man hanging from a gibbet ‘I. CURTIS ALIAS CURTEL HUNG IN CHAINS NEAR SARUM MAR 14 1768’, rev. ‘FOR THE ROBBERY AND MURDER of WOLF MYERS Dec 28 1767’, 36 mm. £600-800 Suspected of the brutal murder of a Jewish pedlar, Wolf Meyer, in 1767, sailor John Curtis was tracked to his ship, H.M.S. Achilles, then berthed in Gosport. Brought back to Salisbury he was convicted and hanged, and his body was then suspended in chains near the scene of the murder. The Salisbury Journal recorded at the time that “the body of a person who had been most barbarously murdered, was found thrown into a pit ...about two miles from [Salisbury].... round the head lay several large flint stones; and not far from the place...the blade of a large knife....there appeared to be a large fracture in the skull, a deep and mortal stab in the lower part of the belly from the groin upwards.....Upon enquiry he appeared to be a travelling Jew, Woolfe by name..” Circumstances drew suspicion on a sailor who had claimed that he himself had been assaulted and robbed. Apprehended aboard H.M.S. Achilles, and found in possession of various incriminating items such as a pedlar’s box, he was “executed for murder....and afterwards hung in chains near the place where he had committed the fact”. John Curtis (or possibly Courtine “a Portugeze [sic]”) was 27 years of age, and he denied his guilt to the last. Reference: Captain B.H. Cunnington, ‘Some 18th and 19th Century Wiltshire Tokens.’

We departed from Vera Cruz on the 17th of May without catching the fever but we did not go on shore often so we were in no danger we all set out on horses or so they may be called for we could count every bone in their bodies and after a great many fatigues we arrived at Jalapa..... after passing through Puebla and a great many other places we arrived safe at Mexico [City] but.....we had to go to bed very often without our suppers for there was nothing to eat for us - we arrived at Mexico on the 28th of May’.

Royalties are calculated on a sliding percentage scale based on the hammer price excluding the buyer’s premium. The royalty does not apply to lots selling below the sterling equivalent of 1,000 and the maximum royalty payable on any single lot is the sterling equivalent of 12,500.

Droit de Suite, which is not subject to VAT, will be added to the buyer’s purchase price and then passed on to the relevant collecting agency.
Where practical, payment can be made and purchases collected during the auction.
Please enquire for the accepted exchange rate on the day of the sale.
Please note that furniture and clock lots will normally remain in our salerooms for three working days following each sale, after which they will be removed to our store and arrangements for collection must be made in advance with the office.
Royalties for Droit de Suite are as follows:
Storage charges will be levied on all lots in the furniture and works of art and clock sales not collected within 30 calendar days of the sale. This will include a handling fee of £20 (+ VAT) per consignment and a storage charge of £2 (+ VAT) per lot per day. No goods will be allowed to be collected until these charges have been paid. LOT SYMBOLS VAT Lots marked with an asterisk (†) are subject to VAT on the hammer price.

SOCIETY OF FINE ART AUCTIONEERS AND VALUERS and the ROYAL INSTITUTION OF CHARTERED SURVEYORS CONDITIONS OF BUSINESS INFORMATION FOR BUYERS 1. Introduction. The following informative notes are intended to assist Buyers, particularly those inexperienced or new to our salerooms. All sales are conducted on our printed Conditions of Sale which are readily available for inspection and normally accompany catalogues. Our staff will be happy to help you if there is anything you do not fully understand. 2. Agency. As auctioneers we usually contract as agents for the seller whose identity, for reasons of confidentiality, is not normally disclosed. Accordingly if you buy your primary contract is with the seller. 3. Estimates. Estimates are designed to help buyers gauge what sort of sum might be involved for the purchase of a particular lot. The lower estimate may represent the reserve price and certainly will not be below it. Estimates do not include the Buyer’s Premium or VAT (where chargeable). Estimates are prepared some time before the sale and may be altered by announcement before the sale. They are in no sense definitive. 4. The purchase price. The Buyer shall pay the hammer price together with a premium thereon of 22% on the first £500,000 and 12% thereafter + VAT at the appropriate rate. 5. VAT. (*) indicates that VAT at the current standard rate is payable by the purchaser on the hammer price as well as being an element in the buyer’s premium. This imposition of VAT is likely to be because the seller is registered for VAT within the European Union and is not operating the Dealers Margin Scheme or because VAT is due at 20% on importation into the UK. The double symbol (**) indicates that the lot has been imported from outside the European Union and the present position is that these lots are liable to a reduced rate of VAT (5%) on the gross lot price (i.e. both the hammer price and the buyer’s premium). Lots which appear without either of the above symbols indicate that no VAT is payable on the hammer price. This is because such lots are sold using the Auctioneers’ Margin Scheme and it should be noted that the VAT included within the Premium is not recoverable as input tax. 6. We are, primarily, agents for the seller. We are dependent on information provided by the seller and whilst we may inspect lots and act reasonably in taking a general view about them we are normally unable to carry out a detailed or any examination of lots in order to ascertain their condition in the way in which it would be wise for a buyer to do. Intending buyers have ample opportunity for inspection of goods and, therefore, accept responsibility for inspecting and investigating lots in which they may be interested. Please note carefully the exclusion of liability for the condition of lots contained in the Conditions of Sale. Neither the seller nor we, as the auctioneers, accept any responsibility for their condition. In particular, mechanical objects of any age are not guaranteed to be in working order. However, in so far as we have examined the goods and make a representation about their condition, we shall be liable for any defect which that examination ought to have revealed to the auctioneer but which would not have been revealed to the buyer had the buyer examined the goods. Additionally, in specified circumstances lots misdescribed because they are ‘deliberate forgeries’ may be returned and repayment made. There is a 3 week time limit. (The expression ‘deliberate forgery’ is defined in our Conditions of Sale). 7. Electrical goods. These are sold as ‘antiques’ only and if bought for use must be checked over for compliance with safety regulations by a qualified electrician first. 8. Export of goods. Buyers intending to export goods should ascertain (a) whether an export licence is required for the goods to leave the U.K. and (b) whether there is any specific prohibition on importing the goods in question into the destination country because, e.g. they may contain prohibited materials such as ivory. Charges may be applicable for export licences. Ask us if you need help. The denial of any permit or licence shall not justify cancellation or rescission of the sale contract or any delay in payment. 9. Bidding. Bidders will be required to register before the sale commences and lots will be invoiced to the name and address on the registration form. Some form of identification will be required if you are unknown to us. Please enquire in advance about our arrangements for telephone bidding. 10. Commission bidding. Commission bids may be left with the auctioneers indicating the maximum amount to be bid excluding buyers’ premium. They will be executed as cheaply as possible having regard to the reserve (if any) and competing bids. If two buyers submit identical commission bids the auctioneers may prefer the first bid received. Please enquire in advance about our arrangements for the leaving of commission bids by telephone or fax. 11. Methods of Payment. As a general rule any cheques tendered will need to be cleared before removal of the goods is permitted. Please discuss with our Office in advance of the sale if other methods of payment are envisaged (except cash).
12. Collection and storage. Please note what the Conditions of Sale state about collection and storage. It is important that goods are paid for and collected promptly. Any delay may involve the buyer in paying storage charges.
TERMS OF CONSIGNMENT FOR SELLERS 1. Interpretation. In these Terms the words ‘you’, ‘yours’, etc. refer to the Seller and if the consignment of goods to us is made by an agent we assume that the Seller has authorised the consignment and that the consignor has the Seller’s authority to contract. Similarly the words ‘we’, ‘us’, etc. refer to the Auctioneers. 2. Commission is charged to sellers at the following rates: 15% + VAT on each lot sold for up to £999, 10% + VAT on each lot realising £1,000 and above. 3. Removal costs. Items for sale must be consigned to the sale room by any stated deadline and at your expense. We may be able to assist you with this process but any liability incurred to a carrier for haulage charges is solely your responsibility. 4. Loss and damage waiver. We are not regulated by the FSA for the provision of insurance to clients. However, we for our own protection assume liability for property consigned to us at lower pre-sale estimate. To justify accepting liability, we make a charge of 1.5% of the hammer price plus VAT or, if unsold, our mid estimate of the hammer price. If the owner of goods consigned instructs us in writing not to take such action, they then remain at owner’s risk unless and until the property in them passes to the Buyer or they are collected by or on behalf of the owner, and clause 4 is inapplicable. 5. Illustrations. The cost of any illustrations is borne by you. If we consider that the lot should be illustrated your permission will usually be asked first. The copyright in respect of such illustrations shall be the property of us, the auctioneers, as is the text of the catalogue. 6. Minimum bids and our discretion. Goods may be offered subject to a reserve agreed between us before the sale in accordance with clause 7. 7. We may sell lots below the reserve provided we account to you for the same sale proceeds as you would have received had the reserve been the hammer price. If you specifically give us ‘discretion’ we may accept a bid of up to 10% below the formal reserve. . Reserves. (a) You are entitled to place prior to the auction a reserve on any lot consigned, being the minimum hammer price at which that lot may be sold. Reserves must be reasonable and we may decline to offer goods which in our opinion would be subject to an unreasonably high reserve (in which case goods carry the storage and insurance charges stipulated in these Terms of Consignment). (b) A reserve once set cannot be changed except with our consent. (c) Where a reserve has been placed only we may bid on your behalf and only up to the reserve (if any) and you may in no circumstances bid personally. 8. Electrical items. These are subject to detailed statutory safety controls. Where such items are accepted for sale you accept responsibility for the cost of testing by external contractors. Goods not certified as safe by an electrician (unless antiques) will not be accepted for sale. They must be removed at your expense on your being notified. We reserve the right to dispose of unsafe goods as refuse, at your expense. 9. Soft furnishings. The sale of soft furnishings is strictly regulated by statute law in the interests of fire safety. Goods found to infringe safety regulations will not be offered and must be removed at your expense. We reserve the right to dispose of unsafe goods as refuse, at your expense. The rights of disposal referred to in clause 8 and 9 are subject to the provisions of The Torts (Interference with Goods) Act 1977, Schedule 1, a copy of which is available for inspection on request. 10. Descriptions. Please assist us with accurate information as to the provenance etc. of goods where this is relevant. There is strict liability for the accuracy of descriptions under modern consumer legislation and in some circumstances responsibility lies with sellers if inaccuracies occur. We will assume that you have approved the catalogue description of your lots unless informed to the contrary. Where we are obliged to return the price to the buyer when the lot is a deliberate forgery under Condition 15 of the Conditions of Sale and we have accounted to you for the proceeds of sale you agree to reimburse us the sale proceeds. The liability to reimburse the sale proceeds shall not arise where you are acting reasonably and honestly and are unaware of the forgery but we are or ought to have been aware of it.
WW102-397 Listing.qxp_Layout 1 20/09/2016 13:58 Page 77
11. Unsold and withdrawn items. If an item is unsold it may with your consent be re-offered at a future sale. Where in our opinion an item is unsaleable you must collect such items from the saleroom promptly on being so informed. Otherwise, storage charges may be incurred. We reserve the right to charge for storage in these circumstances at a reasonable daily rate. 12. Withdrawn and bought in items. These are liable to incur a charge of up to 10% plus VAT of the reserve or low estimate on being bought in or withdrawn after being catalogued. 13. Conditions of Sale. You agree that all goods will be sold on our Conditions of Sale. In particular you undertake that you have the right to sell the goods either as owner or agent for the owner. You undertake to compensate us and any buyer or third party for all losses liabilities and expenses incurred in respect of and as a result of any breach of this undertaking. 14. Authority to deduct commission and expenses and retain premium and interest. (a) You authorise us to deduct commission at the stated rate and all expenses incurred for your account from the hammer price and consent to our right to retain beneficially the premium paid by the buyer in accordance with our Conditions of Sale and any interest earned on the sale proceeds until the date of settlement. (b) You authorise us in our discretion to negotiate a sale by private treaty not later than the close of business on the day of the sale in the case of lots unsold at auction, in which case the same charges will be payable as if such lots had been sold at auction and so far as appropriate these terms apply. 15. Warehousing. We disclaim all liability for goods delivered to our saleroom without sufficient sale instructions and reserve the right to make minimum warehousing charge of £2 per lot per day. Unsold lots are subject to the same charges if you do not remove them within a reasonable time of notification. If not removed within three weeks we reserve the right to sell them and defray charges from any net proceeds of sale or at your expense to consign them to the local authority for disposal. 16. Settlement. Subject to our normal trading conditions, payment will be made by BACS or cheque four weeks after the sale unless the buyer has not paid for the goods. In this case no settlement will then be made but we will take your instructions in the light of our Conditions of Sale. You authorise any sums owed by you to us on other transactions to be deducted from the sale proceeds. You must note the liability to reimburse the proceeds of sale to us as under the circumstances provided for in Condition 10 above. You should therefore bear this potential liability in mind before parting with the proceeds of sale until the expiry of 28 days from the date of sale.

WW102-397 Listing.qxp_Layout 1 20/09/2016 15:40 Page 78
10. COMMISSION BIDS Whilst prospective buyers are strongly advised to attend the auction and are always responsible for any decision to bid for a particular lot and shall be assumed to have carefully inspected and satisfied themselves as to its condition, we will if so instructed clearly and in writing execute bids on their behalf. Neither the auctioneer nor our employees or agents shall be responsible for any failure to do so save where such failure is unreasonable. Where two or more commission bids at the same level are recorded we reserve the right in our absolute discretion to prefer the first bid so made. 11. WARRANTY OF TITLE AND AVAILABILITY The seller warrants to the auctioneer and you that the seller is the true owner of the property consigned or is properly authorised by the true owner to consign it for sale and is able to transfer good and marketable title to the property free from any third party claims. 12.

TERMS OF SALE The seller acknowledges that lots are sold subject to the stipulations of these Conditions in their entirety and on the Terms of Consignment as notified to the consignor at the time of the entry of the lot. 14. DESCRIPTIONS AND CONDITION (a) Whilst we seek to describe lots accurately, it may be impractical for us to carry out exhaustive due diligence on each lot. Prospective buyers are given ample opportunities to view and inspect before any sale and they (and any independent experts on their behalf) must satisfy themselves as to the accuracy of any description applied to a lot. Prospective buyers also bid on the understanding that, inevitably, representations or statements by us as to authorship, genuineness, origin, date, age, provenance, condition or estimated selling price involve matters of opinion. We undertake that any such opinion shall be honestly and reasonably held and accept liability for opinions given negligently or fraudulently. Subject to the foregoing neither we the auctioneer nor our employees or agents nor the seller accept liability for the correctness of such opinions and all conditions and warranties, whether relating to description, condition or quality of lots, express, implied or statutory, are hereby excluded. This Condition is subject to the next following Condition concerning deliberate forgeries and applies save as provided for in paragraph 6 ‘information to buyers’. (b) Private treaty sales made under these Conditions are deemed to be sales by auction for purposes of consumer legislation. 15. FORGERIES Notwithstanding the preceding Condition, any lot which proves to be a deliberate forgery (as defined) may be returned to us by you within 21 days of the auction provided it is in the same condition as when bought, and is accompanied by particulars identifying it from the relevant catalogue description and a written statement of defects. If we are satisfied from the evidence presented that the lot is a deliberate forgery we shall refund the money paid by you for the lot including any buyer’s premium provided that (1) if the catalogue description reflected the accepted view of scholars and experts as at the date of sale or (2) you personally are not able to transfer a good and marketable title to us, you shall have no rights under this condition. The right of return provided by this Condition is additional to any right or remedy provided by law or by these Conditions of Sale. GENERAL 16. We shall have the right at our discretion, to refuse admission to our premises or attendance at our auctions by any person. 17. (a) Any right to compensation for losses liabilities and expenses incurred in respect of and as a result of any breach of these Conditions and any exclusions provided by them shall be available to the seller and/or the auctioneer as appropriate. (b) Such rights and exclusions shall extend to and be deemed to be for the benefit of employees and agents of the seller and/or the auctioneer who may themselves enforce them. 18. Any notice to any buyer, seller, bidder or viewer may be given by first class mail or Swiftmail in which case it shall be deemed to have been received by the addressee 48 hours after posting. 19. Special terms may be used in catalogue descriptions of particular classes of items in which case the descriptions must be interpreted in accordance with any glossary appearing in the catalogue. 20. Any indulgence extended to bidders buyers or sellers by us notwithstanding the strict terms of these Conditions or of the Terms of Consignment shall affect the position at the relevant time only and in respect of that particular concession only; in all other respects these Conditions shall be construed as having full force and effect. 21. English law applies to the interpretation of these Conditions.
PAINTINGS, DRAWINGS, LITHOGRAPHS, ENGRAVINGS AND PRINTS In accordance with long standing practice in Fine Art Sale Rooms certain terms used in descriptions in the Catalogue have the meanings ascribed to them in the glossary below. Glossary Any statement as to authorship, attribution, origin, date, age, provenance and condition is a statement of opinion and is not to be taken as a statement of fact. The Company reserves the right, in forming their opinion, to consult and rely upon any expect or authority considered by them to be reliable. (a) Edward Lear: In our opinion a work by the artist. (When the artist’s forename(s) is not known, a series of asterisks, followed by the surname of the artist, whether preceded by an initial or not, indicates that in our opinion the work is by the artist named. (b) Attributed to Edward Lear: In our opinion probably a work by the artist but less certainly as to authorship is expressed than in the preceding category. (c) Studio of Edward Lear: In our opinion a work by an unknown hand in the studio of the artist which may be or may not have been executed under the artist’s direction. (d) Circle of Edward Lear: In our opinion a work by an as yet unidentified but distinct hand, closely associated with the named artist but not necessarily his pupil. (e) Style of ...; Follower of Edward Lear: In our opinion a work by a painter working in the artist’s style, contemporary or nearly contemporary, but not necessarily his pupil. (f) Manner of Edward Lear: In our opinion a work in the style of the artist and of a later date. (g) After Edward Lear: In our opinion a copy of a known work of the artist. (h) The term signed and/or dated and/or inscribed means that in our opinion the signature and/or date and/or inscription are from the hand of the artist. (i) The term bears a signature and/or date and/or inscription means that in our opinion the signature and/or date and/or inscription have been added by another hand. (j) Dimensions are given height before width. (k) Pictures are framed unless otherwise stated.
BOOK AUCTIONS If, on collation, any named item in this catalogue proves defective in text or illustration, the lot may be returned within 14 days of the sale with the defects stated in writing. This proviso shall not apply to defects stated in the catalogue or announced at the time of sale; nor to the absence of blanks, half titles, tissue guards or advertisements, damage in respect of bindings, stains, spotting, marginal tears or other defects not affecting completeness of text or illustration; nor to drawings, autographs, letters or manuscripts, signed photographs, music, atlases, maps or periodicals; nor to books not identified by title; nor to books sold not subject to return.

The royalty does not apply to lots selling below the sterling equivalent of 1,000 and the maximum royalty payable on any single lot is the sterling equivalent of 12,500.

Valuations PROBATE VALUATIONS We offer a speedy and professional service for executors and trustees and provide bound valuations for probate and duplicate copies when required. Since security is often a consideration, we can usually arrange for a house to be cleared and sent for auction, our Valuations Department ensures that executors are informed of which sales are involved and the results thereof.
Valuations are a core part of our business and are usually carried out by a senior specialist or directors. Accuracy, speed and above all confidentiality are paramount. INSURANCE VALUATIONS Written valuations for insurance can vary from a single item to a large estate. Before starting we discuss the various options available so that the valuation is specifically tailored to individual client’s needs.
We also carry out valuations for Family Division, Capital Gains Tax, and Private Treaty Sales.
For valuations of an entire house contents an itemised bound valuation is produced and can be accompanied by photographs when required. In addition to providing an inventory, written valuations can prevent painful arguments with a loss adjuster in the event of a claim.
Contact Christine Johnson 01722 424509 FREE AUCTION VALUATIONS Free verbal valuations of items for sale are available at our Castle Street salerooms. Please telephone the relevant specialist or call our office on 01722 424500.
