100 CHURCHILL, Winston Spencer (1874-1965). Lord Randolph Churchill. London: Macmillan and Co., 1906. 2 volumes, 8vo. Half-titles, photogravure frontispiece portraits of Lord Randolph Churchill, illustrated with tipped-in facsimiles. (Marginal dampstain on preliminary leaves of first volume, including frontispiece and title-page, occasional finger-soiling.) Original maroon cloth gilt, uncut (hinges cracked or starting, spines a little darkened, some light spotting to cloth); housed together in folding morocco-backed case. Provenance: Thomas Walden (inscription). FIRST EDITION, PRESENTATION COPY TO HIS VALET, inscribed on the front free endpaper of the first volume: “T. Walden / from / Winston S. Churchill. / 30 Jan. 1906.” A fine association copy inscribed by Churchill to his valet (who formerly worked for his father, Lord Randolph) of Churchill’s masterful biography of his father. The book is more than an exercise in filial piety or a defense of Lord Randolph’s provocative stand on Home Rule. It is a superb political history of the late Victorian era, told with verve and keen insight into the motives of the major players. Thomas Walden had begun his service with Lord Randolph and later became Churchill’s “man” since he accompanied him to South Africa in 1899. Woods A8(a).

Provenance: Edmund Ollier (1827-1886) English journalist (signature and annotations, see below). FIRST EDITION, A FINE ASSOCIATION COPY, annotated throughout by Dickens’s contemporary and friend, Edmund Ollier. In one such annotation, Ollier recalls: “I recollect my father used to say that Dickens originally intended to make only a short story of “Oliver Twist”, but he (my father) recommended him to give it the usual three-volume dimensions. My father was at that time engaged at Bentley’s” (p.69). Ollier contributed works to Household Words, and his father knew Dickens while employed by the publisher Richard Bentley. Dickens contributed a serialised edition of Oliver Twist illustrated by George Cruikshank to Bentley’s Miscellany, which first appeared in January 1837, and which was an immediate success. Ultimately, Dickens paid Bentley £2,250 to buy out the rest of his contract and to purchase the copyright to Oliver Twist.

Original printed wrappers with woodcut portrait of Dickens on front, facsimile of the first page of the manuscript on back; original mailing envelope. The album was presumably produced for readers to preserve the daily parts of Dickens’s story (see Gimbel E178). “From the London Daily Mail the United Features Syndicate bought publication rights for the two Americas. The Scripps-Howard Newspapers, of which The San Francisco Chronicle is one, sensed the value of the manuscript both as a great news event of the 20th century and as a literary triumph and reserved publication rights in all cities where Scripps-Howard papers are published” (lower wrapper). Not in Gimbel. 160

168 DODGSON, Charles Lutwidge (“Lewis Carroll”) (1832-1898). Sylvie and Bruno. -Sylvie and Bruno Concluded. London: Macmillan, 1889, 1893. 2 works in 2 volumes, 8vo (180 x 120 mm). Numerous illustrations after Harry Furniss. Uniformly bound in 20th century half red morocco, spines in 6 compartments with 5 raised bands, top edges gilt, stamp-signed by Bayntun; original red cloth gilt bound in; cloth folding case. Provenance: Mrs. Woodhouse (presentation inscriptions from Dodgson, see below). FIRST EDITIONS, PRESENTATION COPIES, INSCRIBED BY DODGSON THE DAY BEFORE PUBLICATION: “Mrs. Woodhouse with kindest regards from the Author. Dec. 12. 1889.” and “Mrs. Woodhouse with the Author’s sincere regards. Dec. 28, 1893.” Mrs. Woodhouse, the recipient, is most likely Mrs. Mary Lakemore Woodhouse, who lived at Weybridge, Surrey, and who Dodgson met in September 1879 at Eastbourne. In a 1 September 1887 letter to Harry Furniss discussing his illustrations for Sylvie and Bruno, Dodgson mentions Mrs. Woodhouse’s daughter, Nora: “There is a lovely girl, an old friend of mine...who would do splendidly for Lady Muriel” (Edward Wakeling, Lewis Carroll and His Illustrators: Collaborations & Correspondence 1865-1898 p.145). Mrs. Woodhouse provided Dodgson with 5 photographs of Nora to share with Furniss to use as the model for his depiction of Lady Muriel. On 9 September 1887, Dodgson writes to Furniss: “On the whole, I doubt if you could have a better guide for the head of Lady Muriel...Mrs. Woodhouse says ‘Should Mr. Furniss care to copy either [photograph] for your book, I should esteem it a honour’” (Edward Wakeling, Lewis Carroll and His Illustrators: Collaborations & Correspondence 1865-1898 p.149). Dodgson also similarly inscribed copies of both works to Emmeline Woodhouse, the wife of his close friend and colleague George Girdlestone Woodhouse, which are part of the Berg Collection at the New York Public Library.

Provenance: Cornelius Horekondt? (Latin inscription and signature dated 1616 on title-page); Chester Tilton Stone (1886-1937) American physician (bookplate). FIRST EDITION OF ALHAZEN’S CLASSIC WORK ON OPTICS AND VISION. “The Arab physicist Alhazen preserved for us all that was known by the ancients in the field of optics and added some contributions of his own” (Heralds of Science). Alhazen’s work builds on Ptolemy and Euclid, and he derived his explanation of the structure of the eye from the teaching of Galen. Optics was translated into Latin in 12thcentury Spain, likely by Gerard of Cremona. Friedrich Risner, a protege of Pierre Ramus, prepared the first edition of Alhazen’s work from two Latin manuscripts discovered by Ramus. Al-Jayyani’s treatise on twilight is frequently found in manuscripts with Alhazen’s Optics. Witelo’s Perspectiva was previously published twice before its inclusion in this work (Nuremberg 1535, 1551). This combined edition was the standard reference work on optics through the 17th century, influencing scientists including Galileo, Brahe, and Kepler.

Translated from Italian by Matthias Bernegger (1582-1640). Strasbourg: D. Hauttius for the Elzevirs [at Leiden], 1635. 4to (197 x 151mm). Engraved additional title, full-page engraved portrait by Jacob van der Heyden, woodcut diagrams, with final leaf of errata. (Evenly browned, washed, some spotting, some upper margins with small bleach stains, 5 leaves with corner repairs, burn hole on Ee3 affecting a letter, paper repair on Q2 slightly obscuring a few letters on Q2.) Modern vellum over stiff boards (some bowing, bookseller’s description mounted on front free endpaper). FIRST LATIN EDITION of the Dialogo, the summation of Galileo’s astronomical thought and the work which directly precipitated his trial. The Dialogo takes the form of a conversation between supporters of the rival cosmic systems; although ostensibly impartial, it proved a step too far, and in 1633 Galileo was tried, forced to abjure Copernicanism and sentenced to permanent house arrest. The Dialogo itself was banned. This Latin edition includes two tracts in the appendix not in the Italian edition of 1632, and it is the only major work of Galileo’s to be published outside Italy during his lifetime. The two added Latin tracts are the introduction to Kepler’s Astronomia nova (pp. 459-464), and a letter by Paolo Antonio Foscarini defending the truth of Copernicanism and rebutting the charge that it conflicted with scripture (pp. 465-495). Willems notes the “mediocre” quality of the paper used. Brunet II, 1462; Carli and Favaro 148; Cinti 96; Riccardi I, 513; Willems 426; cf.

If you knew the hours I have lived you would forgive me immediately. We have just gone nine weeks of the hardest and bloodiest fighting I have ever seen…too many have fallen. The Lord has kept me for other tasks. No doubt, the love and prayers of my good friends are a shield that defies…bullets and shells.” He sends support for the Duchess as well: “I see in it your enthusiastic and your hopeful soul struggling to overcome the many difficulties that spring up …as soon as you are free to accomplish anything… You like to struggle. You like to fight, to accomplish. If you were a man you too would be in the trenches.

Taken for Collier’s Weekly by James H. (“Jimmy”) Hare, stamped on verso with pencil annotations: “Orville Wright making first 1 hour flight at Fort Myer, Sept. 9, 1908.” PHOTOGRAPH OF THE FIRST HOUR-LONG FLIGHT, EXCEEDINGLY SCARCE SIGNED BY BOTH WILBUR AND ORVILLE WRIGHT Despite having made numerous successful flights after their first flight at Kitty Hawk in 1903, the Wright brothers were reluctant to reveal their flying machine to the public without the protection of a patent. By 1908, other early aviators were making successful flights in front of amazed crowds. With contracts finally finalized with a French syndicate and the U. S. Army, the Wrights were willing to make their first public flights, and on 8 August 1908, Wilbur Wright made his first flight in public at the Hunaudieres race course just south of Le Mans, France. Following their success in France, the Wright brothers set the price for their airplane at $25,000, and flight trials for the Army were scheduled in Fort Myer. There, Orville made his first public flight on 3 September, and flew daily over the course of the next two weeks to meet the Army’s criteria. On the morning of September 9, he remained in the air for 57 minutes 31 seconds; later that day, he established the first flight lasting over an hour, remaining in the air one hour 2 minutes 15 seconds. TAKEN BY JIMMY HARE, THE FIRST NEWS PHOTOGRAPHER TO RECORD AND PUBLISH AN AIRPLANE IN FLIGHT James H. (“Jimmy”) Hare was on hand to capture this first hour-long flight. Prior to 1908, no professional photographs had been taken of the Wright brothers in flight, and the amateur photograph of their 17 December 1903 flight at Kitty Hawk had never been released. Following up on a rumor, Jimmy Hare and a group of four reporters hiked the dunes at Kitty Hawk until they found what they believed to be the Wrights’ testing site. When the Wrights’ machine appeared on the horizon, Jimmy Hare took two shots, and became the first news photographer to record an airplane in flight; the images were published in Collier’s Weekly on May 30, 1908. He was on hand again to photograph the Wrights at Fort Myer for Collier’s Weekly, and published other images of Orville Wright’s September 9th flights in the September 26th issue (p.11, “Skyscraping at Fort Myer”). EXCEEDINGLY RARE: We trace only three photographs signed by both Orville and Wilbur Wright at auction in the last 40 years. $8,000-12,000

Barnes”), New York, NY, 18 November 1909. 6 pages, on legal sheets, thicker back cover page date stamped recording date of 23 November 1909, with typed company name and a few notes in an unidentified hand, bound with copper brads upper margin, additionally signed by E. Mortimer Boyle, Notary Public in New York County, a notary slip for Montgomery County Ohio signed by the Clerk of the Common Pleas Court dated 20 November 1909 affixed to page 6, with a duplicate receipt for $500.00 from the treasurer’s Office for the State of New York dated 22 November 1909, sheets skillfully reinforced along folds on verso repairing several separations, including a fold bisecting Orville Wright’s signature. A FOUNDING DOCUMENT IN THE HISTORY OF AVIATION: THE CERTIFICATE OF INCORPORATION FOR THE WRIGHT COMPANY Wilbur and Orville Wright established their company in 1909 to capitalize on their invention of the practical airplane, and to protect their invention. Outlined in the Certificate of Incorporation are the stated purposes of the company, primarily “To manufacture, sell, deal in, operate or otherwise use at any place or places on the North American continent and the islands adjacent thereto, machines, ships, or other mechanical contrivances for aerial operation or navigation of any and every kind and description, and any future improvements or developments of same.” The certificate is signed by five stockholders of the company on the last page. The Wright Company was founded as a million-dollar corporation, with Wilbur Wright as president, Orville Wright and Andrew Freedman as vice presidents, Alpheus F. Barnes as secretary and treasurer. The Wrights sold their American patent rights to the company on November 27th for $100,000 cash, 40 percent of the company stock, and a 10 percent royalty on every machine built. Cornelius Vanderbilt, Robert J. Collier, and Russell A. Alger, directors of the newly-formed company, ordered the first three airplanes from the company in November 1909. The Company was immediately involved in a number of suits against patent infringers, and subsequently bore the expense of protecting the patents. The Company, which was headquartered in New York, broke ground on a factory in Dayton Ohio in January 1910; the factory buildings were the first in the United States constructed specifically as an airplane factory. After Wilbur’s unexpected death in 1912, Orville became president. He purchased 97% of the outstanding stock in 1914, and on October 15, 1915, he sold the company, which in 1916 merged with the Glenn L. Martin company to form the Wright-Martin Company. Orville estimated that the company built approximately 120 airplanes from 1910 through 1915. $20,000-30,000

Discussing contributions to Funk & Wagnalls dictionary regarding aeronautical definitions. “We should apologize for our delay in answering your letter of September 1st…but as we had already written you that we could no longer assist in your work on account of apparently irreconcilable differences in ideals of what a dictionary should be, we laid the letter aside till a more convenient time… “For reasons hitherto stated we cannot consent to have our names used as sponsors for the aeronautical section of the dictionary. We strongly disapprove of the policy of encumbering the dictionary with expressions whose real meaning is more clearly and correctly set forth by the words themselves than by the attempted definitions, and with a multitude of new words coined by persons having no standing in the art, and which have not been accepted by other writers or students. Therefore we must again decline any formal association with your work. “Nevertheless, if you should consider it practicable and desirable, when the work on this department has been completed, to send us the full list at one time, we will merely as a duty to the public and without any remuneration of any kind, take the trouble to go through the list and indicate the parts which we think should be dropped entirely, and mark any glaring errors in the remaining terms.” $6,000-8,000 400 [WRIGHT BROTHERS].

The editors of Funk & Wagnalls Standard Dictionary asked the Wright brothers to act as consultants regarding aeronautical definitions. Orville was designated department editor for “Aviation and Aeronautics” and he and Wilbur revised many outdated definitions. The Wright brothers comment on the definitions for “Ballon-sonde” (which “is but the French of the English equivalent sounding balloon, which is good English”), “ballon desai” (“we are not familiar with the expression”), and the use of the word “beat” (used only for “flapping wing machines”). $3,000-4,000

As I have only one copy left, I would request that you take good care of it and return it to me as soon as you are through with it.” Orville continued as department editor for “Aviation and Aeronautics” for the 1913 edition of the dictionary and through numerous subsequent editions. $1,000-1,500 402 WRIGHT, Orville (1871-1948). Typed letter signed (“Orville Wright”), to Charles B. Driscoll, McNaught News Syndicate. Dayton, OH, 23 October 1928. 1 page, 4to, on personal stationery. Thanking Driscoll for a clipping by Dr. Charles Abbot entitled “On Being Wrong,” addressing the Smithsonian Institution’s assertions that S. P. Langley’s Aerodrome was the first piloted airplane capable of sustained flight. According to Wright, Abbott’s article is “mostly a gesture and it scarcely made a start towards clearing up the serious matters in controversy. Up to the year 1914 there was no room for question in history or in the public mind as to which was the first aeroplane capable of sustained free flight, or as to whose research furnished the foundation of modern aviation. But in that year, at the suggestion of Glenn H. Curtiss, [Charles Doolittle] Walcott placed the remaining parts of the original Langley machine in Curtiss’ hands. The fundamental changes enumerated in my letter to Dr. Abbott (a copy of which I enclose [not present]) had been made in its design before any test was made. Yet not one of these changes ever was reported by the Smithsonian Institution.” Langley had unsuccessfully attempted to fly his Aerodrome prior to the Wright brothers’ first flight at Kitty Hawk. In 1914, the Smithsonian Institution lent the remains of the craft to Curtiss, who intended to prove that the Wright brothers did not make the first flight; his motives were purely commercial, as he had just lost a patent suit to the Wright Company. Curtiss rebuilt the Aerodrome before his flight near Hammondsport, New York, and he and the Smithsonian insisted it proved that Langley’s craft had been capable of flight in 1903. The Smithsonian published reports of these claims through 1918. When Dr. Charles Abbot assumed the role of Secretary at the Smithsonian in 1929, he attempted to negotiate a truce with Orville, and they finally made amends in 1942. $6,000-8,000

Thomas & Thomas, Mount Vernon, 6 October 1800. 1 page, 4to, integral address leaf as described above, on Washington’s personal watermarked paper. ONE OF FOUR SURVIVING FREE FRANKS BY MARTHA WASHINGTON, ON A LEAR LETTER Lear writes some 10 months after George Washington’s death requesting the cancellation of newspaper subscriptions which had proven burdensome: “Mrs. Washington requests me to inform you, that she finds it inconvenient to take the number of Newspapers with which she has heretofore furnished; and is therefore determined to discontinue them at the end of the present year; to which period she begs you will send in your account for the Farmer’s Museum &c, and inform her whether payment shall be remitted to yourselves, or made to some person in this quarter. The discontinuance of your paper is not on account of any objection to it in any respect; but merely to obviate the inconvenience which Mrs. Washington expresses on receiving so many papers. You will be pleased to be punctual in forwarding your account for the present year ...” Congress granted Martha Washington the franking privilege on 3 April 1800, and she held it until her death on 22 May 1802. Her free franks are rare. In the 1974 edition of his Collecting Autographs and Manuscripts, Charles Agvent stated that “only three franks of Martha Washington ... are known to exist.” The present frank is illustrated in the Stampless Cover Catalogue, p. 223; a photograph of this cover was used to illustrate Edward Stern, “Supplement to the History of the ‘Free Franking’ of Mail in the United States,” in The Collector’s Club Philatelist, Sec. II, vol. 23, no. 1 (January 1944), p. 7. Provenance: Creighton C. Hart (tiny heart stamp and pencilled acquisition date of 1959; his sale Christie’s New York, 1993, lot 310). $30,000-40,000

GUIDE FOR PROSPECTIVE SELLERS Evaluation of Property If you have property you wish to sell, please call our Consignment Department at 312.280.1212 to arrange for a consultation. At that time, you may make an appointment to bring your property or photographs, along with any other pertinent information, to Hindman and we will be happy to provide you with complimentary estimates and advice. If you have a large collection, an appointment may be made to evaluate the property on-site. Fees for on-site visits may vary. Standard Commission Rates Our standard rate of commission is equal to ten percent (10%) of the hammer price on each lot sold for $5,001 or more; fifteen percent (15%) of the hammer price on each lot sold for $2,001 or more but less than $5,001; and twenty-five percent (25%) of the hammer price on each lot sold for $2000 and less with a minimum commission of $25 per lot sold. If your property fails to reach the reserve price agreed upon between you and Hindman, you may be obligated to pay a reduced commission rate of five percent (5%) of the reserve price. Shipping Arrangements Hindman can advise you as to how to have your property delivered to our galleries. Packing, shipping and insurance are payable by the seller. In certain instances, packing and shipping costs may be paid by Hindman and deducted from the proceeds of the sale. We may recommend packers and shippers, but we are not responsible for their acts or omissions. Appraisals Appraisals can be arranged for insurance, donation, estate tax, family division or other purposes. Appraisal fees vary according to circumstances. Please contact our Estates and Appraisals Department at 312.280.1212 for further information.

GUIDE FOR PROSPECTIVE BUYERS Conditions of Sale Hindman encourages all prospective buyers to read the Conditions of Sale printed in this catalogue. Exhibitions Hindman recommends that all prospective buyers attend the pre-sale exhibition prior to the auction. Staff members are available at our pre-sale exhibitions to advise prospective buyers on particular objects or on any aspect of the bidding process. Estimates Hindman provides catalogue descriptions and pre-auction estimates for each lot included in the sale. These estimates are a guide for prospective bidders. They are not definitive. All pre-sale estimates are subject to revision. Condition Reports We are happy to provide a condition report for lots with a low estimate of $300 and above. Nevertheless, intending buyers are reminded that condition reports are statements of our opinion only, and that each lot is sold “AS IS,” per our Conditions of Sale, as outlined in the back of this catalogue. All lots should be viewed personally by prospective buyers or their agents to evaluate the condition of the property offered for sale due to the highly subjective nature of condition reports. Bidding at Auction The highest bidder acknowledged by the auctioneer will be the purchaser. In addition to the hammer price, the buyer agrees to pay Hindman a buyer’s premium as well as any applicable taxes.

Bidding generally opens at half the low estimate and advances in the following order, although the auctioneer may vary the bidding increments during the course of the auction. The normal bidding increments are:

$0 - $200 ........................................ $10 $200 - $500 ........................................ $25 $500 - $1,000 ..................................... $50 $1,000 - $2,000 ................................... $100 $2,000 - $5,000 ................................... $200 $5,000 - $10,000 ................................. $500 $10,000 - $20,000 .............................. $1,000 $20,000 - $50,000 .............................. $2,000 $50,000 - $100,000 ............................ $5,000 $100,000 - $200,000 .......................... $10,000 Over > $200,000 ...... Auctioneer’s Discretion

In-House Bidding Live bidding at Hindman is by paddle only. Please register for a paddle at the entrance of the sales room. If you are the successful bidder, your paddle number and the hammer price will be announced by the auctioneer. Online Bidding Hindman allows absentee and live bidding through our website at www.lesliehindman.com as well as absentee and live bidding through third party online bidding providers which vary by sale. For more information regarding online bidding please visit our website at www.lesliehindman.com. Absentee Bidding If you are unable to attend an auction, you may use the absentee bid form provided at the back of this catalogue. Hindman will exercise written order bids and telephone bids at no additional charge. Lots will always be sold as inexpensively as is allowed other bids and reserves as are on our books or bids executed in competition from the audience. Tax Exempt Notice Lots marked with an asterisk (*) are tax exempt as permitted by law.

CONDITIONS OF SALE HINDMAN LLC AS AGENT The lots listed in this catalogue will be offered by Hindman LLC as owner or as agent for consignor(s) subject to the following terms and conditions. By bidding at auction you agree to be bound by these Conditions of Sale.

BEFORE THE SALE Prospective buyers are strongly advised to personally examine any property in which they are interested before the auction takes place. Condition reports are usually available on request, on lots with a low estimate of $300 and above. All lots are sold “AS IS” and without recourse and neither Hindman LLC nor its consignor(s) makes any warranties or representations, express or implied with respect to such lots. Neither Hindman LLC nor its consignor(s) makes any express or implied warranty or representation of any kind or nature with respect to merchantability, fitness for purpose, correctness of the catalogue or other description of the physical condition, size, quality, rarity, importance, medium, material, genuineness, attribution, provenance, period, culture, source, origin, exhibitions, literature or historical significance of any lot sold. The absence of any reference to the condition of a lot does not imply that the lot is in perfect condition or completely free from wear and tear, imperfections or the effects of aging. No statement, whether written or oral, and whether made in the catalogue, or in supplements to the catalogue, an advertisement, a bill of sale, a salesroom posting or announcement, the remarks of an auctioneer, or otherwise, shall be deemed to create any warranty, representation or assumption of liability. Hindman LLC and its consignor(s) make no warranty or representation, express or implied, that the purchaser will acquire any copyright or reproduction rights to any lot sold. Hindman LLC expressly reserves the right to reproduce any image of the lots sold in the catalogue.

AT THE SALE Refusal of Admission Hindman LLC has the right, at our complete discretion, to refuse admission to the premises or participation in any auction and to reject any bid. Registration before Bidding A prospective buyer must complete and sign a registration form and provide identification before bidding. We may require bank or other financial references. Bidding as Principal When making a bid, a bidder is accepting personal liability to pay the purchase price, including the buyer’s premium, all applicable taxes and all other applicable charges, unless it has been explicitly agreed upon in writing with Hindman LLC before the commencement of the sale that the bidder is acting as agent on behalf of an identified third party acceptable to Hindman LLC, and that Hindman LLC will only look to the principal for payment. Absentee Bids We will use reasonable efforts to carry out written bids given to us at least 24 hours prior to the sale for the convenience of clients who are not present at the auction in person, by an agent or by telephone. Bids must be placed in U.S. dollars. If we receive written bids on a particular lot for identical amounts, and these are the highest bids on the lot at the auction, it will be sold to the person whose written bid was received and accepted first. Execution of written bids is a free service undertaken subject to other commitments at the time of the sale and we do not accept liability for failing to execute a written bid or for errors and omissions in connection with the written bid. Telephone Bids On lots with a low estimate of $300 and above and if a prospective buyer makes arrangements with us prior to the commencement of the sale we will use reasonable efforts to contact them to enable them to participate in the bidding by telephone and we do not accept liability for failure to do so or for errors and omissions in connection with telephone bidding. These telephone bids may be recorded at the discretion of Hindman LLC. Online Bids We will use reasonable efforts to carry out online bids and do not accept liability for equipment failure, inability to access the Internet or software malfunctions related to the execution of online bids.

154

Reserves Some lots in the sale are subject to a reserve which is the confidential minimum price below which such lot will not be sold. The reserve will not exceed the low estimate of the lot. Reserves are agreed upon with consignors or, in the absence thereof, the absolute discretion of Hindman LLC. The auctioneer may open the bidding on any lot below the reserve by placing a bid on behalf of the seller. The auctioneer may continue to bid on behalf of the seller up to the amount of the reserve, either by placing consecutive bids or by placing bids in response to other bidders. With respect to lots that are offered without reserve, unless there are already competing bids, the auctioneer, in his or her discretion, will generally open the bidding at half of the low estimate for the lot. In the absence of a bid at that level, the auctioneer may proceed backwards at his or her discretion until a bid is recognized, and then continue up from that amount. Auctioneer’s Discretion The auctioneer has the right at his or her absolute and sole discretion to refuse any bid, to advance the bidding in such a manner as he or she may decide, to withdraw any lot, and in the case of error or dispute, and whether during or after the sale, to determine the successful bidder, to continue the bidding, to cancel the sale or to reoffer and resell the item in dispute. If any dispute arises after the sale, our sale record is conclusive. Successful Bid The highest bidder acknowledged by the auctioneer will be the purchaser. In the case of a tie bid, the winning bidder will determined by the auctioneer at his or her sole discretion. In the event of a dispute between bidders, the auctioneer has final discretion to determine the successful bidder or to reoffer the lot in dispute. If any dispute arises after the sale, the Hindman LLC sale record shall be conclusive. Title passes upon the fall of the auctioneer’s hammer to the highest acknowledged bidder subject to the Conditions of Sale set forth herein, and the bidder assumes full risk and responsibility.

AFTER THE SALE Buyer’s Premium In addition to the hammer price, the buyer agrees to pay Hindman LLC a buyer’s premium and the applicable sales tax added to the final total. The buyer’s premium for all purchases except via live online bidding is twenty-five (25%) of the hammer price up to and including $250,000; twenty percent (20%) of any amount in excess of $250,000 up to and including $3,000,000; and twelve percent (12%) of any amount in excess of $3,000,000. The buyer’s premium for purchases made via live online bidding is twenty-six (26%) of the hammer price up to and including $250,000; twenty-one percent (21%) of any amount in excess of $250,000 up to and including $3,000,000; and thirteen percent (13%) of any amount in excess of $3,000,000.

Payment The buyer must pay the entire amount due (including the hammer price, buyer’s premium, all applicable taxes and other charges) no later than 5 p.m. on the seventh (7) business day following the sale. Payment in U.S. dollars may be made with cash; bank check or cashier’s check drawn on a U.S. bank; money order; or wire transfer unless other arrangements are made with Hindman LLC.

The purchaser agrees to pay Hindman LLC a handling charge of $50 for any check dishonored by the drawee. Tax Exempt Notice Lots marked with an asterisk (*) are tax exempt as permitted by law.


Collecting Purchases Once Hindman LLC has received all funds due to us, the buyer shall collect purchased lots within seven (7) business days from the date of the sale. Packing and Shipping If your bid is successful, we can provide you with a list of shippers. We will not be responsible for the acts or omissions of carriers or packers whether or not recommended by us. Property will not be released to the shipper without the buyer’s written consent and until payment has been made in full. Packing and handling of purchased lots by us is at the entire risk of the purchaser, and Hindman LLC will have no liability of any loss or damage to such items. Non Payment If we do not receive payment in full, in good cleared funds, within seven (7) business days following the sale, we are entitled in our absolute discretion to exercise one or more of the following measures, in addition to any additional actions available to us by law: a.) to impose a late charge of one and a half percent (1.5%) per thirty (30) days of the total purchase price b.) to hold the defaulting buyer liable for the total amount due and to begin legal proceedings for its recovery together with interest, legal fees and costs to the fullest extent permitted under applicable law c.) to cancel the sale d.) to resell the property publicly or privately with such terms as we find appropriate, to resell the property at public auction without reserve, and with the purchaser liable for any deficiency, cost, including handling charges, the expenses of both sales, our commission on both sales at our regular rate, all other charges due hereunder and incidental damages. In addition, a defaulting purchaser will be deemed to have granted us a security interest in, and we may retain as collateral security for such purchaser’s obligations to us, any property in our possession owned by such purchaser. At our option, payment will not be deemed to have been made in full until we have collected funds represented by checks, or in the case of bank or cashier’s checks, we have confirmed their authenticity.

LIABILITY Condition Reports Hindman LLC is not responsible for the correctness of any statement of any kind concerning any lot, whether written or oral, nor for any other errors or omissions in description or for any faults or defects in any lot. Neither the seller, ourselves, our officers, employees or agents, give any representation, warranty or guarantee or assume any liability of any kind in respect of any lot with regard to merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, description, size, quality, condition, attribution, completeness, authorship, authenticity, rarity, importance, medium, provenance, exhibition history, literature or historical relevance. Except as required by local law any warranty of any kind whatsoever is excluded by this paragraph. Items under $1,000 are collated upon request. Purchased Lots If for any reason a purchased lot cannot be delivered in the same condition as at the time of sale, or should any purchased lot be stolen, mis-delivered or lost prior to delivery, Hindman LLC shall not be liable for any amount in excess of that paid by the purchaser. Legal Ramifications The rights and obligations of the parties with respect to these Conditions of Sale, the conduct of the auction and any matters connected with any of the foregoing shall be governed and interpreted by the laws of the jurisdiction in Illinois. If any part of these Conditions of Sale is found by any court to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable, that part shall be discounted and the rest of the conditions shall continue to be valid to the fullest extent permitted by law. Discretion Any and all of the conditions may be waived or modified in the sole discretion of Hindman LLC. 03/18

e.) to offset against any amount owed f.) to not allow any bids at any upcoming auction by or on behalf of the buyer g.) to take other action as we find necessary or appropriate

Failure to Collect Purchases If property is not picked up within seven (7) business days following the sale, whether or not payment has been made, Hindman LLC reserves the right to charge $5 per lot per day or to deliver said property to a public warehouse for storage at the purchaser’s expense. Hindman LLC shall have no liability for any damage to property left on its premises for more than seven (7) business days following the sale. In addition, we reserve the right to impose a late charge of one and a half percent (1.5%) per month of the total purchase price if payment is not made in accordance with the conditions set forth herein. For property that is not picked up after thirty (30) calendar days, an additional administration fee of $75 will be charged. Property which is paid for but left on our premises for any reason in excess of sixty (60) calendar days is subject to sale by us with the balance of any funds recovered in excess of storage charges and any other fees being remitted to you.
