GAELIC & SCOTTISH BOOKS: THE COLLECTION OF THE LATE MR ANGUS JOHN MACDONALD Angus John MacDonald was born into a crofting family on North Uist in 1933, moving to mainland Scotland in the 1950s. He travelled widely, visiting North America, Africa and New Zealand but his greatest interest was his book collection, amassed over some 50 years. He was widely recognised as something of an authority on Gaelic literature, being interviewed a number of times by BBC Alba. Angus John invested much time and scholarly energy in his library. The following 41 lots comprise his outstandingly comprehensive collection of Gaelic and Scottish books. Lot 79, Alexander MacDonald’s A Galick and English Vocabulary (Leabhar a Theagasc Ainminnin), is one of the earliest books in the collection, and one of the earliest English-Gaelic vocabularies. Lot 80 is also a highly significant work in the history of Gaelic printing – a third edition of MacDonald’s

Ais-Eiridh na Sean-Chanoin Albannaich..., Hugh Cheape writes that the first edition of this work, published in 1751, was, “the first book of original Gaelic verse and, in terms of the language, essentially the first published vernacular and the genesis of a written tradition in Scottish Gaelic.” Rumour has it that the book, in its first edition, was burned by the public hangman [Cheape, The Gaelic Book…] Scottish topography also finds a place in the library, with copies of Erskine Beveridge’s North Uist and Coll and Tiree both featuring. Moreover, the collection offers the opportunity to acquire some exceedingly rare items. Co-Chruinneachadh Nuadh do Dh’Orannibh Gaidhealach, an 1806 collection of Highland songs, only appears to have one traceable copy, in the National Library of Scotland. Similar treasures can be discovered throughout this remarkable collection.

Provenance: Seemingly from the family of Henry Dundas, 1st Viscount Melville, and Robert Dundas, his son, both First Lords of the Admiralty during the Napoleonic Wars. From a private Scottish collection. Note: A collection of documents dating from 1804 order the construction and acquisition of ships in the months immediately preceeding the Battle of Trafalgar. The Admiralty made strong efforts to ensure that the Navy could move swiftly to counter Napoleon. These documents date from very soon after Henry Dundas’s appointment as First Sea Lord. A second collection of documents relate to the Admiralty’s preparations for the Battle of Waterloo. On 26th February 1815, Napoleon managed to escape the island of Elba and return to France. The British government panicked in response to this and began preparations for their final confrontation - Waterloo. Robert Dundas had been First Sea Lord for three years at this point. The documents also relate to Kent coastal defences, Ships in Commission on the Peace Establishment and to East India ships. The latter may refer to Henry Dundas’s longstanding links with the East India Company. £1,000-1,500

Note; The first important battle of the rebellion was at Prestonpans on 27 September 1745 and this was a decisive victory for Charles over Sir John Cope who was Lieutentant-General, Commander of King George I’s forces in Scotland. There is a paucity of knowledge about Cope’s life after his Court of Inquiry in 1746. After he was defeated at the Battle of Prestonpans in 1745 he was the subject of the Jacobite song “Hey, Johnnie Cope! Are ye waukin yet ?” Autograph letters by him are very rare.

Note: One of the reasons for the failure of the 1745 rebellion was the fact that the promised French support did not arrive. In February 1744 Charles left Dunkirk with thousands of fighting men and ships provided by Louis XV. Before the Royal Navy had to engage with them a storm got up. French boats were sunk and men were lost. The surviving ships including Charles’s had to limp back to France. Involved in the failure was James Barry, fourth Earl of Barrymore, who served as general in the War of the Spanish Succession. Late in life he took the impulsive decision to support Charles Edward Stuart, “Bonnie Prince Charlie”, and became a figure of national importance when he was discovered as the English rebel who would meet the invading French army in 1744. His advanced age saved him from prosection and probable execution. £200-300 181 HE683/10 [Battle of Inverurie] - Gordon, Lord Lewis (d.1754) Autograph letter signed, to an unknown correspondent, referring to a cruise Gordon had been on off Cape Finistere and the Gallician Coast and the capture of a privateer with 16 guns, 145 men and two English merchantmen; also asking him to pass on his compliments to all his friends in London including Mr Fairfax and Lady Burlington, 1 page, 4to., Portsmouth, 21 June 1740 Note: Lord Lewis Gordon, a naval officer, was a major supporter of Bonnie Prince Charlie and became a member of the Prince’s Council in Edinburgh in October 1745. Gordon recruited for the Prince in Aberdeenshire and Banff and defeated the government force at Iverurie. He Commanded his “Lord Lewis Gordon” battalions at the Battles of Falkirk and Culloden.

In England the flower “Sweet Willliam” was named after him. In Scotland a particularly nasty, smelly weed is known as “Stinking Billie”.

Note: Grace Horsley Darling, (1815-42), was an English lighthouse keeper’s daughter, the seventh of nine children, who lived on Longstone Island, part of the Farne Islands off the coast of Northumberland, and is famous for her role in saving survivors from the wreck of the Forfarshire. In the early hours of 7 September 1838, Grace Darling spotted the wreck and survivors of the Forfarshire on Big Harcar, a nearby low rocky island. The Forfarshire had foundered on the rocks and broken in half: one of the halves had sunk during the night. As the storm was too severe for the lifeboat to set off from Seahouses, Grace and her father set off in a rowing boat & rescued four men and the lone surviving woman. The news of their dramatic rescue spread fast, and Grace was hailed as an example of bravery and unalloyed virtue. Grace and her father were awarded the Silver Medal for bravery by the Royal National Institution for the Preservation of Life from Shipwreck, later named the Royal National Lifeboat Institution. Subscriptions and donations totalling over £700 were raised for her, including £50 from Queen Victoria; more than a dozen portrait painters sailed to her island home to capture her likeness, and hundreds of gifts, letters, and even marriage proposals were delivered to her. Her wealth and fame were such that the Duke of Northumberland and Charles Thorp Archdeacon of Durham established a trust to look after the financial gifts that were sent in. The present archive largely relates to the fund and trust set up for Grace. Included in the lot is a copy of Grace Darling, The Maid of the Isles, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, 1839, half calf, and Constance Smedley Grace Darling and Her Times, 1932. £1,500-2,500 188 HE10/1 de Comminges, Roger, Lord of Saubole - Regnault de Rene - Richard Landon - Payments to a Garrison at Metz, 1586 Document signed by Roger de Comminges, Lord of Saubole, Regnault de Rene, and Richard Landon relating to payments to a garrison at Metz, written in French, dated 17th April 1586, single sheet of vellum 40.2 x 35.7cm £200-400

189 HD950/3 Dickens, Charles - Smith, Arthur; Mackay, Charles - Scottish Readings Tour 1858 Autograph signature of Charles Dickens, dated Sixth October 1858, and also dated Perth October 6th 1858, on slip 12.5 x 3cm.; Smith, Arthur, [Charles Dicken’s Tour Manager], [Reading Ticket] Envelope inscribed “Dear Sir, Please send the enclosed to Aberdeen by Train, Faithfully, Arthur Smith, Sept 8th”, envelope with blue printed motif on rear “Mr Charles Dickens’s Readings”; Mackay, Arthur (1814-89; author and journalist who worked with Dickens on the Morning Chronicle and the Daily News) Clipped signature “Yours truly, Chas. Mackay”, 4 x 9cm., pasted onto a piece of paper Note: Collection of interconnected items relating to Dickens Scottish Readings of 1858. Arthur Smith was Dickens’s Tour Manager from 1858 to 1861; Charles Mackay, a lifelong friend of Dickens born in Perth, was a renowned Scottish poet and publisher in his own right and was the sub editor on the Morning Chronicle (the editor of which was George Hogarth, father of Catherine, later to become Dickens’s wife) for which Dickens worked as a Parliamentary reporter. It is surely no coincidence that Perth figures on Dickens’s first Scottish Tour and the Dickens signature in his own hand notes it, the date and year. There is also an unusual monogram of two interlocking initials, either C.D. or R.D. ? Smith’s message on the back of the Dickens’s Readings envelope is enigmatic. “Dear Sir.. Please send the enclosed to Aberdeen by train. Faithfully, Arthur Smith, Sept. 8th”. What was in the envelope, tickets perhaps to Dickens’s Reading at the Music Hall in Aberdeen ? Curiously there is no addressee on the envelope. Apart from the interconnection of the signatures, the 1858 Scottish tour is highly important in terms of Dickens’s personal life. In the early Summer of 1858 on his return with Arthur Smith from a highly

successful American tour, the misdirected jewellery incident ended formally Dickens’s marriage and exposed his affair with Ellen Ternan, an 18 year old actress. For a while it threatened to destroy the “home and hearth” image of Dickens as a stalwart family man. At the time Dickens was terrified of the loss of his Public and the likely financial repercussions. Under instruction from Dickens Smith released a detailed letter - the “Violated” letter in which Dickens tried to defend his actions. It must have been with both trepidation and relief that Dickens soon after set off for Scotland to give a series of Public Readings in Edinburgh, Perth, Dundee, Aberdeen and Glasgow. Dickens relied on Arthur Smith for the organisation and promotion of his Reading Tours (1858-1861). Arthur Smith in his own right was the English equivalent of Barnum in America. He sold Dickens as a “Brand”. Dickens recognised Smith’s talent when the latter successfully promoted his brother Albert Smith - who was as famous in his heyday as Dickens as a poet, novelist and mountaineer, promoting his brother’s “Ascent of Mont Blanc” production and creating Mont Blanc mania in London. Financially the Scottish part of the Readings Tour was a great success. The net profit to Dickens of the English Tour had been upwards of three hundred pounds a week, but this was nothing to the success in Scotland, where his profit in a week, with all expenses paid, was five hundred pounds. Speaking of his last 1858 Edinburgh reading, Dickens wrote “the people had to be got in through such a crowd as rendered it a work of the utmost difficulty to keep an alley into the room. They were seated about me on the platform, put into the doorway of the waitingroom, squeezed into every conceivable place, and a multitude turned away once more. I think I am better pleased with what was done in Edinburgh than with what has been done anywhere, almost. “ 2016 is the 150th anniversary of Dickens’s second Scottish Reading Tour of 1866. £600-800

190 SV888/17 Documents Relating to the Marriage of Elizabeth, Dowager Duchess of Hamilton and Brandon with Colonel John Campbell Ms. Marriage contract between Colonel John Campbell, afterwards 5th Duke of Argyll and Elizabeth, Duchess of Argyll, née Gunning, dated 2 March 1759, 9 pages, and other Ms., either pasted in or loosely inserted. Folio, c. 1900 full red polished morocco, by Rivière and Son, original “Dutch” patterned wrappers bound in Note: The Duchess was born Elizabeth Gunning (1733-1790), one of a pair of Irish sisters whose beauty took English society by storm in the early 1750s. On 14 February 1752 the teenage Elizabeth secretly married James 6th Duke of Hamilton and 3rd Duke of Brandon; he died aged 33 in January 1758, leaving Elizabeth a widow, not yet twenty-five years old, with three young children (the 7th and future 8th Dukes of Hamilton and a daughter, Elizabeth). The bridegroom, Colonel John Campbell, in 1759 may have been without a title, but his father, also John, was heir presumptive to the elderly Archibald, 3rd Duke of Argyll, and the groom was the eldest son, so a dukedom was expected in time. Elizabeth’s son’s, George James, claim to be heir of Archibald, Duke of Douglas, on the Duke’s death in 1761, gave rise to one of the longest law suits known in Scottish legal history at that time. The celebrated ‘Douglas Cause’ ultimately ended in the House of Lords overturning the original decision by the Court of Session in George James’s favour. The marriage contract is signed at the foot of each page by the bride on the left, and, at the bottom right, the groom, his father and brother Frederick. The last page is also signed by the witnesses: the Duke of Argyll, John Ross Mackye, Sir Henry Bellenden (Usher of the Black Rod and the groom’s maternal uncle), and George Ross, the London lawyer who drew up the contract and whose clerk, Hugh Robertson, wrote it. The first three folios are each impressed with embossed tax stamps for 1/6d. The contract outlines the financial provisions to be made to the Duchess: she is to receive an annuity of £800 per annum in the event of the groom’s death, and the document outlines how this sum is to be raised and gives guarantees that it will be paid in various family circumstances. She is also to receive a lump son of £2000 on the occasion of her husband’s death; and there are details of her rights to moveable property. The document details payment by the groom’s father, when he becomes Duke, to his son of £2,000 per annum, and the handing over of Argyll property at Roseneath, whose income is to be part of the £2,000. The bride is to make over to the groom the income of certain Hamilton properties of which she currently has control (for example the barony of Kinneil) according to her Hamilton marriage contract of 15 September 1752. Pasted into the album immediately after the contract is a document in the same hand, undated but probably early March 1759, concerning money owed to James Masterton by the brothers John and Frederick Campbell. Following this is another contemporary document part printed, part manuscript, also relating to money owed by John Campbell to James Masterton. The exact relationship, if any, between these two documents and the marriage contract is unclear. Next is a short pasted-in document relating to the Roseneath details of the marriage contract. This is partly in the hand of the groom’s father, and partly in the hand of the head of the Campbells, Archibald 3rd Duke of Argyll. The last document pasted into the album is a copy of this document, dated 21 March 1764[?], written and signed by the lawyer, George Ross. Pasted in at the front of the album is a third version of this document in the hand of the groom’s younger brother Frederick, dated 21 March 1764. This notes who wrote the original, and certifies its authenticity. Frederick was by now Lord Frederick Campbell (he was to become Lord Clerk Registrar of Scotland in 1768 until his death in 1816) and the groom Marquis of Lorne, his father having become 4th Duke of Argyll in 1761. Loosely inserted into the folder is a much later copy of the contract and two copies of a related document, in the same hand as the contract


itself. These last documents are unsigned, and undated, although one has tax stamps. One is endorsed “Copy Obligation for an Additional Annuity of £700 from Lieut. General John Campbell, Col. John Campbell, Mr Frederick Campbell and Mr William Campbell In favour of Her Grace Elizabeth Duchess of Hamilton and Brandon”. There is also a much later copy of this document. £1,500-2,000 191 HE36/1 Elizabethan indenture dated 20th February 1589, a mortgage for £300 of the tithes of Hartishill, Warwickshire by Sir Henry Goodere of Polesworth to William Cooke, with signatories including Michael Drayton, 64 x 78cm on 1.5 leaves of vellum, some soiling and tears Note: One of the witnesses to the document is possibly the English poet, Michael Drayton, 1563-1631. Various scholars have linked Drayton to the Goodere family, although more recent enquiry has cast doubt upon this. £150-200

Architectural Photographers’ and ‘L.M.S. Hotel Services St Pancras’ to reverse of photographs (12) Note: No other copies traced in National Archives In 1910 Donald Matheson, General Manager of the Caledonian Railway Company, conjured the vision of the Gleneagles Hotel, to be situated in the area of Auchterarder in Scotland. The hotel was to provide a luxury experience and a variety of leisure pursuits such as fishing and, most notably, golf. The hotel was called “the Riviera in the Highlands”. The introduction to the “proposal” presented here reads: It is believed that if a new and up-to-date Hotel were established in a central district of the country... and there were conveniently attached to it facilities for golfing, fishing, shooting and motoring, the best of people would be attracted... and success would be assured...


This was fully realised a number of years ago, and... Gleneagles was chosen as a siutable place to have such an Hotel...

Trace of silvering, very fine. (Lot 1746, Baldwin’s 9 May 2012)

The building was designed by Matthew Adam in 1913 and the preliminary scheme for it was created by James Miller.


However, in 1914 the building project was halted due to the outbreak of World War I . It is likely that the project was halted in order for young men to go away on military service. At the end of the War, the primary leisure activity of golf was a priority for James Baird who was responsible for the construction of the hotel’s golf courses and in 1919 the King’s Course was officially opened for play. The following year Gleneagles hosted the Scottish Professional Championship, the first golf competition in a series of golfing events hosted by Gleneagles such as the Glasgow Herald Tournament - the precursor to the Ryder Cup. The project for the construction of the hotel itself was not resumed until 1922. The document for sale here would seem to be a copy of a proposal, or a plan, to re-start the construction. The hotel was officially opened in 1924, with extensive publicity targeted at the upper end of the market attracting visitors from afar as America and all over Britain. £2,000-3,000

Note: Rare historic document, containing a full list of all the property which Dashwood claimed. This includes property and money in Lancashire belonging to the Earl of Derwentwate, who was one of the most important of all the rebels and who was executed for high treason. By an act of 1715 entitled ‘An Act for appointing Commissioners to inquire of the Estates of certain Traitors, and of Popish Recusants [Catholics], and of Estates given to Superstitious Uses in order to raise money out them severally for the use of the publick’, all the real property of persons attainted, or who should be attainted before 24 June 1718, of any high treason committed before 1 June 1716 was declared to be forfeited and vested in the crown without further office or inquisition found. The commissioners were empowered to inform themselves of the names of persons so convicted or attainted of high treason, and of all real estates and interests vested in the crown pursuant to the act, by what tenure they were held, and to what incumbrances they were liable. The commissioners met first at the Exchequer Chamber, Westminster, on 27 June 1716 and later in the Speaker’s Chambers, where it was decided to form a separate commission for forfeited estates in Scotland. The commissioners for England went to Preston in September 1716, then to Newcastle, and back to London, where they sat at Essex Court off the Strand until 1722. They then moved to Fig Tree Court, Inner Temple, their number being reduced from seven to four, until the commission was wound up in 1724. £800-1,000 200 HB812/23 James, Major Charles Two series of autograph letters to Major James at the Military Library, Whitehall & Charing Cross, the first, of 5 letters, July 1814 - Dec. 1817 from B.G.

209 HD312/1 Porteous Riots - Manuscript - “An Act to disable Alexander Wilson Esq. from holding or enjoying any Office or place of Magistrary in the City of Edinburgh or elsewhere in Great Britain and for Imprisoning the said Alexander Wilson and for abolishing the Guard kept up in the said City commonly called the Town Guard and for taking away the Gates of the Nether Bow Port of the said City and keeping open the same.”, 6 pages, folio, waterstained but legible, few short tears affecting a few letters, 1736 Note: The Porteous Riots are a famous instance of the Edinburgh mob taking the law into their own hands. Three men had been sentenced to death for robbing a customs house in Fife. One was pardoned for turning King’s evidence, one escaped and the third, Andrew Wilson, a popular smuggler, was hung on 14 April 1736. The Town Provost, Alexander Wilson, had ordered the Town Guard to ensure order but as Andrew Wilson’s body was taken down, the crowd who sympathised with him for attempting to rob the hated Customs House officers, attacked the Town Guard. Porteous, the much disliked Captain of the Town Guard, fired on the crowd, and ordered his men to do the same, killing at least 6 people. Porteous was soon arrested, charged, found guilty, sentenced to death and imprisoned in the Tolbooth near St. Giles. A rumour that he would be pardoned led to a huge mob breaking into the Tolbooth whereupon Porteous was dragged to the Grassmarket and hung. Despite a parliamentary inquiry and several attempts to identify and charge ringleaders, no one was ever convicted of the execution of Porteous, though the City of Edinburgh was fined £2,000 by the Government and Lord Provost Wilson was disqualified from holding office again. The present manuscript is either the manuscript Act or a contemporaneous copy of the Act disqualifying Wilson from holding office.

However, Scott subsequently sent a set of his Waverley novels to d’Haussez. When d’Haussez published an account of the visit in his travelogue, John Gibson Lockhart, Scott’s son-in-law, called the account: ‘vain imbecility... pitiable’, remarking that d’Haussez had not taken Scott’s ailing health into consideration.

219 HE683/12 Stuart, Charles Edward - “Bonnie Prince Charlie” (1720-1788) Autograph Letter, in cryptic code, unsigned, apparently to a MacDonald, beginning with the statement “ye two houses by se or Land” and “attempt far off”, enjoins his correspondent to secrecy, mentions the needs for funds and the names Gros, Douns and Ryans, and suggests that Ryans who will write “immediately [if it is?] on or off” should come in his person with it and give it to Mr Gordon, one page headed “Munday Morning at 10:1/2”, no place or date, 1 page, 8vo Note: On the run after the battle of Culloden, the Prince resorted to sending his letters in cryptic code. Naturally these are difficult to interpret. Scholars believe this relates to negotiations for the marriage to Louise of Stolberg-Gedern. Ryans was Col. Ryan who was involved in them. Funds for her pension were required - the need for funds is mentioned. Gordon is possibly John of the Scots College in Rome. £800-1,000 220 HE683/14 Stuart, Charles Edward - “Bonnie Prince Charlie” (1720-1788) Autograph Letter Signed, to the Comte d’Argenson, 1/2p., 4to, Paris, 13th January 1747, requesting that an enclosed letter (the following item) be forwarded to the king, endorsed by d’Argenson: “Rép. le 15”; Autograph Letter Signed to Louis XV: “Monsieur mon Frere et Cousin”, 3pp. Paris, 14th January 1747. Having received no reply to his Mémoire [sold in these rooms, 7 May 2014, lot 98, £25,000], Charles expands on his invasion proposals: “Occupé uniquement des malheurs de mes fidèles amis, je me suis transporté à la Cour de Votre Majesté afin de lui proposer moi-même les moyens de faire une expedition beaucoup plus avantageuse pour votre Majesté et pour moi que celle de l’année dernière” and complains of a general belief in France that his plans are not feasible: “l’Opinion que l’on avoit ice de me vrai situation en la regardant comme une chose infaisable, quoique tout le monde est convaincu à present comme je l’etais alors qu’avec un secours médiocre il aurait réussi” and resolves to leave Paris in the light of the current political climate: “de me retirer en quelque lieu où ma condition ne tirera pas à conséquence, et où je serai toujours pret a concourir avec Votre Majesté dans toutes les démarches qui tendront à Sa Gloire et au rétablissement de ma maison dans leurs justes droits”, and offering to appoint a representative to negotiate with the king and his ministers during his absence (2) 219

Note: The letter to King Louis XV and his secretary are from the papers of Marc-Pierre de Voyer de Paulmy, Comte d’Argenson (1696-1764), Secretary of State for War 1743-57), by descent with the family until sold in 2002. The letters remained in the possession of successive Comtes d’Argenson at the chateau des Ormes until deposited on loan with the University of Poitiers in 1976 when they acquired a small library stamp. They were returned to the family after the death of the last Count in 1999. The letter to the King expands on Charles’s proposals to mount a further invasion and complains of a general belief in France that his plans are not feasible. He resolves to leave Paris in the light of the current political climate and offers to appoint a representative to negotiate with the King. £5,000-8,000

221 HE683/15 Stuart, Charles Edward - “Bonnie Prince Charlie” (1720-88) Autograph letters, unsigned, from Charles to the Comte d’Argenson, Louis XV’s Minister of War, 1p and 1/2p., 4to, Paris, 27th March 1747, giving an address and false name for communications and asking the Count’s address, the bearer is Monsieur Sheridan (nephew of Sir Thomas Sheridan) who can be trusted to follow any instructions (2) Note: Under constant surveillance from British government agents, Charles was used to conducting diplomatic negotations in a cloak-anddagger atmosphere, here using the address of John Water & Son, Paris bankers to the Stuarts. The context of these notes, unsigned for obvious reasons, is explained in a letter to his father of 10 April, now in the Stuart Papers: “I have received a civill note from Count d’Argenson in which he desiers I should give him an address by which he can always be able to communicate to me his masters pleasure without its ever being suspected, which I did, giving him a cant name to be sent under cover to Waters jounior, so that everything is at their door.” (Quoted by David Daiches, Charles Edward Stuart, 1973). £1,000-1,500

The Treaty of Aix-la-Chapelle was signed in 1748 recognising the Hanoverian succession. £1,500-2,500 223

223 HE683/17 Stuart, Charles Edward - “Bonnie Prince Charlie” (1720-88) Autograph letter, unsigned, in cryptic code, concerned with Charles’s finanical affairs. It takes the form of a list headed 1747 with various instructions in code. It refers to “John Lambert” and “Waters”, his bankers in Paris, “Vignion” presumably Avignon where he spent part of his exile, “Gordon”, possibly John Gordon, Rector of the Scots College at Paris and “ye Linnin”. Naturally letters of this nature are difficult to understand £800-1,000

224 HE683/19 Stuart, Charles Edward - “Bonnie Prince Charlie” (1720-88), signed as Jacobite King Charles III Letter signed (‘Your sincere Friend, Charles R.’) to the Count of Serrant, acknowledging Serrant’s condolences ‘on the death of the King my father’ [‘The Old Pretender’]. The prince has sent him a large package, under ‘M. Joyes’s cover’ and looks forward to hearing of his successful negotiations in Madrid, ‘You know of what importance it is to me to be supported, especially in my present situation, by the court of Spain.’, Rome, 18 Feburary 1766, one page, 4to, integral address leaf, traces of seal, seal tear Note: Charles Edward was on way to Rome when ‘The Old Pretender’, James Francis Edward Stuart, only son of James II by Mary of Modena and know to his followers as ‘James III’ died there on 1 January 1766. The death of James Stuart appeared to offer his best hope of gaining recognition from the Pope for his own claim to the throne occupied by George II, and the support of Spain was much needed for this purpose. But the Papal counsellors, fearful of alienating England in favour of a claimant already known as a reprobate, warned against him and to his bitter mortification Benedict XIV rejected his appeal. £1,500-2,000 224 225 HE683/21 [Stuart, Charles Edward - Bonnie Prince Charlie (1720-88)] A collection of 6 documents, total 27pp., small folio, four in French, one in French & Italian, one in Italian, one signed by Charles Edward Stuart as “Charles Comte d’Albanie” in two places in his later shaky hand. The signed and most significant document is described as follows in HMC, x.238 (Lord Braye’s MSS, the Stuart MSS): September 27, 1786. Rome. Original power in French executed by Charles Edward before the Chancellor of the French Consulate at Rome to M. Busoni, empowering him, in presence of or acting with the advice of Mons. J.B. Vulpian, to execute along with the Countess of Albany or her representative the agreement whereof a draft is subjoined. Signed “Charles Comte d’Albanie”, seal of French consulate at Rome affixed, executed in duplicate. The draft agreement after reciting the securing of the jointure of 40,000, and the pin-money of 12,000 livres by the marriage contract upon the first subsidies received by Charles Edward, the letter of April, 1772, the letter of separation of April 3, 1784, the grant by Louis XVI of a pension of 60,000 francs to the Countess of Albany and of the same sum to Charles Edward, and the claim of the Countess to the jointure of 40,000 secured by the contract in addition to the pension of 60,000 francs, whereas her husband contended that the contract had been satisfied by the grant of the pension, witnesses that the Countess agrees to accept a reduced jointure of 20,000 livres charged on all the property of her husband, and redeemable at any time after a year from his decease at her option for 500,000 livres. The other documents include: another draft of the “Double de Projet de transaction” (proposed transaction), unsigned, and material giving information about the dowry granted to Princess Louise upon marriage and related matters. HMC lists the draft but none of the other documents Note: The paperwork pertaining to the legal separation of Charles Edward Stuart “Bonnie Prince Charlie” and Louise, Countess of Albany. Both are signed with a very shaky hand “Comte d’Albanie”. £3,000-4,500 225

226 HE683/2 Stuart, James Francis Edward, “The Old Pretender”, (1688-1766) Autograph letter initialled, Urbino, 13th December 1717, in French to an unnamed recipient referring to his situation in exile, the welcome he has received in Italy which had lessened the terrible inconveniences of the an inevitable distance, saying he need to get himself established and that “your always respectable advice for me made me forsee a long time ago the advantages that would return to me” saying that it is not his fault that he is still not married, saying that he will have learned of the complete freedom of the Comte de Peterbrou (?), then continuing to talk about the nature of his conduct towards the Count and how advice and circumstances prevented him from sorting out a disagreement of some kind, and how the people of Italy are solid and reasonable, and while in Rome he learned of things that were being done on his behalf which humbly touched him, looking forward to receiving news of the addressees family which is so dear to him, talking about the climate, etc., 3pp., minor toning to centrefold, 4to., tipped into a modern matted mount with protective paper sleeve cover Note: Since the death of his father King James II in 1701, James Stuart had been regarded by many as the legitimate King James III, though having spent most of his life in exile, mainly in France. The death of Queen Anne in 1714, and the fact that she had no surviving children, seemed to strengthen his claim, and prompted a Jacobite rising in the following year. The Treaty of Utrecht in 1713 quashed this idea with France supporting the Hanoverian succession to the English throne. The Prince therefore travelled south into Italy and took refuge with the Pope. As a more permanent residence he moved to the Ducal Palace at Urbino, where the Prince spent his time dreaming of his hoped-for succession to the English throne. £500-800 227 HE82/8 Tobago plantations - Manuscript Conveyance by John Walker, John Strachan and James Geddes of Edinburgh to Robert Scott Moncrieff Esq. of Edinburgh, of a fourth part of the three fourths part of the said Plantation [formerly known as Lot Number Ten, formerly belonging to Alexander Brown Esq. lately Lieutenant Governor of the said Island... now denominated Providence Plantation] lying in the said Courland Bay and Division of the said Island, “with all ways, waters, watercourses, paths, pasture, trees, woods, underwoods, profiles and commodities, emoluments, advantages, easments and hereditaments, negroes, cattle, stocking houses...”, 1773, document on vellum, remains of red wax seals Note: Tobago’s definite development as a plantation colony was initiated after the conclusion of the Seven Years War in 1763 when France ceded its claims to Britain.

A Selection of Engravings from the Drawings of Plants collected by Joseph Banks and Daniel Solander on Captain Cook’s first Voyage to the Islands of the Pacific, with Accounts of the Voyage by Wilfrid Blunt and of the Botanical Explorations and Prints by William T. Stearn. Lion and Unicorn Press, 1973. Large folio, number 8 of 10 copies, a Subscriber’s copy [Subscriber no 8, Dr. J.A. Watt], 42 engraved plates, text printed in purple, green, red, blue, brown and black, text and plates printed on Crisbrooke handmade paper, binding of Nigerian goatskin with solid gilt edges, designed by Joy Law, hand tooled in 22-carat gold leaf, with gilt stamps of Drosera uniflora from Tierra del Fuego as fleurons, and silk doublures by Zaehnsdorf Limited, with a specimen of Banksia integrifolia (plate 25), gathered at Botany Bay by R.G. Coveny in December 1973, encapsulated in acrylic by David Watkins as part of the upper cover, watered silk endpapers, in a green velvet lined folding green cloth box, morocco gilt lettering piece to upper cover, slight crystallisation at extreme edge of acryllic window, otherwise very fine Note: A magnificent de luxe edition. Apart from its sumptuous binding incorporating a specimen of Banskia integrifolia in a panel inset into the front cover, this edition, limited to 10 copies, also has 42 plates, twelve more than the “standard” edition of the same year which itself was limited to only 100 copies for subscribers. Both editions were fully subscribed long before publication date. The work is of importance as its publication reproduces for the first time some of the engraved plates of Australian plants made under the supervision of Sir Joseph Banks. Apart from a proof impression no prints were made from the plates selected here for publication, the original copper-engraved plates, the original drawings, the specimens used for the drawings and the proof impressions all being held by the British Museum. In the 1960s it was decided that the Royal College of Art should print a selection of the most beautiful plates. The superbly printed rich impressions in strong black ink make this one of the finest botanical books produced in the twentieth century. The ten subscribers to the special edition of Captain Cook’s Florilegium are listed on a sheet loosely inserted as: 1) Howard Radcylffe Esq., 2) The Peabody Museum, Salem, 3) Paul Mellon Esq., 4) P.L.

Among other acts, Saint Cuthbert introduced special laws in 676 protecting the eider ducks, and other seabirds nesting on the islands; these are thought to be the earliest bird protection laws anywhere in the world. The islands were used by hermits intermittently from the 7th century and a monastic cell of Benedictine monks was established on the islands circa 1255 which existed until dissolved in 1536 as part of King Henry VIII’s Dissolution of the Monasteries. Following the dissolution of the monastic cell on the islands, the islands became the property of the Dean and Chapter of Durham Cathedral, who leased them to various tenants. In 1861 the islands were sold to Charles Thorp, who was at the time Archdeacon of Durham. In 1894 the Outer Farne Islands were bought by the industrialist William Armstrong, 1st Baron Armstrong, and in 1926 the Inner and Outer Farne Islands were purchased for the National Trust by public subscription. £1,500-2,000
