FROM THE COLLECTION OF DR FERDINAND MAINZER LOTS 1-11 Ferdinand Mainzer (1871 – 1943) was a German­Jewish gynaecologist and historical author. Working in Berlin and mixing within the art and intellectual circles, he married Gertrud Sabersky, a student of the artist Walter Leistikow. A portrait of Mainzer painted in 1899 by Lovis Corinth is currently on loan to the National Gallery, Trafalgar Square, London. After a hand injury, he was no longer able to perform surgery and turned to writing about antiquity. His biography of Julius Caesar was translated into French and English. He was a close friend of the Catholic priest Frederich von Erxleben who was a member of the Solf Circle of intellectuals involved in the resistance against Nazism. The daughter of Wilhelm and Hanna Solf, the Countess Lagi von Bellestrem, helped Mainzer and his family escape to England.

THE MICHAEL G. JOHNSON COLLECTION IN MEMORY OF MICHAEL G. JOHNSON – HAPPY TRAILS By Richard Green

Born on 22nd April 1937 in the West Midlands region, Mike settled in Walsall and worked for many years as a structural engineer. In his prime, he was a keen sportsman, enjoying cricket and also football. His engineering training and keen eye for detail were qualities he applied assiduously to his personal interest in the Native peoples of North America. Throughout the 1970s, Mike served as an associate editor of American Indian Crafts & Culture magazine, and was a contributing writer in the pages of Whispering Wind, authoring articles on a wide range of topics, including Northeastern, Southeastern and Great Lakes traditional arts, his great passion. His impressive published achievements include The Native Tribes of North America: A Concise Encyclopaedia (1992), which was greatly expanded to become the Encyclopaedia of Native Tribes of North America (various editions of which were published in 1994, 1999, 2001 and 2007); Arts and Crafts of the Native American Tribes, Firefly Books (2011); Iroquois: People of the Longhouse, Firefly Books (2013); and Ojibwa: People of Forest and Prairies, Firefly Books (2016). In the Osprey Men­at­Arms series, the following titles: American Woodland Indians (1990); American Indians of the Southeast (1995); Tribes of the Great Sioux Nation (2000); Tribes of the Iroquois Confederacy (2003); Indian Tribes of the New England Frontier (2006); American Indians of the Great Lakes (2011); and American Indian Tribes of the Southwest (2013). I first met Mike in my youth in the summer of 1969, and we maintained a long­standing friendship thereafter, meeting up regularly, as collectors tend to do, to share news, admire each other’s latest beadwork finds, conduct many trades and discuss all things relating to our mutual interest. In between visits we would correspond avidly, many of his letters and (eventually) emails signed off with his customary greeting – “Happy Trails!” An intensely modest man, Mike was a loyal friend who would freely share the benefit of his expertise with anyone who asked for it. His scholarly opinion was always worth listening to. He corresponded with fellow student and academics in his field, and over the years organized numerous exhibitions and displays of Native material culture, including annual shows at the American Museum in Bath, Somerset. Throughout his lifetime, he visited many parts of the United States and Canada, very often hosted by his old friend, the late Sam Cahoon of New Jersey. Mike Johnson was a rare type of individual many of us would describe as a luminary, broadening our understanding of the rich and diverse indigenous cultures of the North American continent. Like so very many others, I certainly learned a great deal from Mike, and am thankful for his life, considerable achievements and the many happy trails shared along the way.

LOT SYMBOLS VAT Lots marked with an dagger (†) are subject to VAT on the hammer price. Lots marked with an omega (Ω) have been temporarily imported from outside the EU and are subject to VAT at 5% on the hammer price and the buyer’s premium. In online catalogues, the Sales Tax % column indicates the rate of VAT on hammer price. CITES REGULATIONS Please note that lots marked Regulations when exported.

λ may be subject to CITES

The CITES Regulations may be found at www.defra.gov.uk/ahvla­ en/imports­exports/cites/

ARTIST’S RESALE RIGHT / DROIT DE SUITE Lots marked with a ‡ symbol are potentially subject to a levy. Droit de Suite is a royalty payable to a qualifying artist or the artist’s heirs each time a work is resold during the artist’s lifetime and up to a period of 70 years after the artist’s death. 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 €10,000. 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. Please enquire for the accepted exchange rate on the day of the sale. Royalties for Droit de Suite are as follows: 4% Up to €50,000 3% €50,000.01 ­ 200,000 1% €200,000.01 ­ 350,000 0.5% €350,000.01 ­ 500,000 0.25% In excess of €500,000 Up to a maximum levy of €10,000

FIREARMS Lots marked Ƒ in the catalogue, or by any other means identified as controlled firearms, are subject to the UK firearms/shotgun licencing regime, and should only be viewed/purchased by individuals with appropriate licences. It is the responsibility of the bidders to ensure that they are legally authorised to acquire the lot that they are bidding for. In the event that such a lot is successfully bid for by an individual who is not authorised to possess it, that individual will be required to pay for it, but are not allowed to take physical possession of it. The auctioneers will re­offer the lot on behalf of the buyer in a future auction; or may accept instructions to dispose of it by some other legal means, at their discretion.

SOCIETY OF FINE ART AUCTIONEERS AND VALUERS and the ROYAL INSTITUTION OF CHARTERED SURVEYORS CONDITIONS OF BUSINESS INFORMATION FOR BUYERS

TERMS OF CONSIGNMENT FOR SELLERS

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.

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. 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 25% plus VAT @20% (totalling 30% inclusive) on the first £500,000 and 12% plus VAT @20% (14.4% inclusive) thereafter. 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 omega symbol (Ω) 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.

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 pre­sale 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.

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).

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. 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.

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.


WW102-654 Listing.qxp_Layout 1 07/08/2020 16:23 Page 155

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.

3. INCREMENTS Bidding increments shall be at the auctioneer’s sole discretion. 4. THE PURCHASE PRICE The Buyer shall pay the hammer price together with a premium thereon of 25% plus VAT @20% (totalling 30% inclusive) on the first £500,000 and 12% plus VAT @20% (14.4% inclusive) thereafter. 5. VALUE ADDED TAX Value Added Tax on the hammer price is imposed by law on all items affixed with a † or Ω. Value Added Tax is charged at the appropriate rate prevailing by law at the date of sale and is payable by buyers of relevant lots. (Please refer to ‘Information for Buyers’ for a brief explanation of the VAT position). 6. PAYMENT

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.

(a) Immediately a lot is sold you will:

16. Settlement. Subject to our normal trading conditions, payment will be made by BACS or cheque 5 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.

(c) In line with new legislation we reserve the right to investigate and identify the source of any funds received by us. The completion of the sale of a Lot will be postponed or cancelled at our discretion if further time is needed for investigation, or if you are in breach of your warranties as a buyer, or if we consider the sale to be unlawful or in any way cause liabilities or be detrimental to either Woolley and Wallis or the Seller.

CONDITIONS OF SALE

(b) You shall at your own risk and expense collect any lots that you have purchased and paid for from our premises not later than 3 working days following the day of the auction or upon the clearance of any cheque used for payment (if later) after which you shall be responsible for any collection, storage and insurance charges.

The auctioneer shall act reasonably in exercising this discretion. (c) Bidders shall be deemed to act as principals.

(c) No purchase may be collected and we shall not release any lot to you or your agent until it has been paid for. 8.

WW102-654 Listing.qxp_Layout 1 07/08/2020 16:23 Page 156

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. AGENCY The auctioneer normally acts as agent only and disclaims any responsibility for default by sellers or buyers. 13. 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’.

22. Prior written consent must be sought by the buyer or any other party for the use of any images, illustrations and written materials produced by or for Woolley & Wallis relating to a lot or sale, including the contents of a catalogue. Copyright for any of the aforementioned will remain the property of Woolley & Wallis, subject to the provisions of the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988. Woolley & Wallis and the seller make no representations or warranties that the buyer of a lot will acquire any copyright or other reproduction rights to it. 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.
