132 Coleridge, Hartley - [William Wordsworth - Edith Southey] Poems. Leeds: F.E. Bingley, & London: Baldwin and Cradock, 1833. First edition, ﬁrst issue, 8vo, ﬁnal leaf is an errata, yellow endpapers, binders ticket of D.D. Batten, Clapham Common, contemporary maroon morocco blindstamped & ruled to boards, gilt title label, g.e., worn to joints & extremities, with inserted between pages 34 & 35 a printed leaf titled “The Triad” by Wordsworth printed on pink paper & signed Edith Southey in lower margin Note: The sheet “The Traid” is probably the ﬁrst sheet of a three leaf publication [only found in the British Library (London? 1860?] describing the virtues of the three daughters of the Lake Poets. The British Library copy of this leaf is white, whilst this copy is pink, suggesting that it may well have been issued as a broadside or slip ballad originating from diﬀerent paper stocks. The printed fore-margin border of this leaf is not present suggesting it was originally slightly larger & has been trimmed for insertion into this volume. This leaf describes Edith Southey whilst the other two leaves, not present, eulogised the other Lake Poet daughters, Dora Wordsworth & Sara Coleridge. Each recongised the poem as a tribute to her. The ﬁrst edition was published in The Keepsake in 1828 and was longer by 6 lines. The owner of this leaf, Mary Sanger, was born in the same year, 1804, as Edith Southey and they would have been well known to each other. On page 34 of the Poems (opposite the inserted leaf) is a charming Sonnet XXXIV “To a Lofty Beauty, from her Poor Kinsman” written by Hartley Coleridge in tribute to Edith Southey and so identiﬁed in the Index in pencil. However, within a year of publication of the Poems Edith May Southey (1804-71) had married John Wood Warter (1806-78) at Keswick, proliﬁc author and close friend of Robert Southey who is best remembered for his editing of Southey material. This is an Association Copy which links the children of the Romantics. Hartley and Edith were cousins and knew each other well from an early age. Hartley Coleridge (1796-1849) was an English poet, biographer, essayist and teacher. He was the eldest son the poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge. His sister, Sara Coleridge, was a poet and translator. In the Autumn of 1800 Samuel Taylor Coleridge moved his wife and young son, Hartley, to the Lake District. They took a home in the Vale of Derwentwater, on the bank of the Greta River, about a mile from Greta Hall, Keswick, the future home of the poet Robert Southey, which was then being built. Hartley spent his early years in the care of Robert Southey at Greta Hall, which possessed the best library in the neighbourhood. In his time at school Hartley was in constant contact with William Wordsworth and his family. He pursued his English studies in Wordsworth’s library at Allan Bank in Grasmere, and continued to use the library after the Wordsworth family moved to Rydal Mount.

Mary Sanger (1804-90), née Calvert, was a childhood friend of Sara Coleridge and Dora Wordworth, the childrren of the Romantic Poets, who played together at Keswick. Whilst William Wordsworth & Mary Hutchinson (the previous generation) attended the same Infant School in Penrith, Mary was also a friend of Dorothy from their schooldays. Sara’s mother, Sarah, was Coleridge’s wife and her sister, Edith Fricker, was married to Southey, thus linking the female side of the Romantic Movement. £700-1,000 133 Collection of 8 Poetry volumes, including “MacDiarmid, Hugh” [Grieve, Christopher Murray] Sangschaw.

Note: Mary Stanger (1804-90), née Calvert, was a childhood friend of Sara Coleridge and Dora Wordworth, the children of the Romantic poets, who played together at Keswick. Whilst William Wordsworth & Mary Hutchinson (the previous generation) attended the same infant school in Penrith, Mary was also a friend of Dorothy from schooldays. Sara’s mother, Sarah, was Coleridge’s wife and her sister, Edith Fricker, was married to Southey thus linking the female isde of the Romantic Movement. Mary (Huchinson) Wordworth’s (1770-1859) inscription to Katharine Southey is both charming and familiar and Katharine’s signature is strong and ﬁrm being not yet 40 whilst Mary would have been 78 years old. Dr Lietch, the local Doctor from Keswick was known to Thomas Carlyle’s brother Jack (Dr John Aitken) and presumably attended the Lakeland Poets during his long career. This volume was puchased, in a box, from a house clearance in June 2015, originating in Keswick. Mary Stanger, the ﬁnal recipient of this book was née Calvert and the box would appear to have been in the possession of the family Moorsom of Keswick. At the time of Mary’s inscription Wordworth would have only two years to live, at Rydal Mount. Southey had died in 1843 and Coleridge in 1834. De Quincey, the great biographer of the Lake District Poets, was to die in the same year as Mary Wordsworth, 1859. Katharine appears never to have married. £800-1,200
Provenance: Henry Taylor (1800-1886), English dramatist and poet, oﬃcial, and well-connected man of letters, met William Wordsworth and Robert Southey on a visit to the Lake District in 1823. Jane Taylor had a ﬁrst cousin Isabella Fenwick (1783–1856), and it was Henry Taylor who introduced her to the Wordsworth family. Isabella Fenwick (1783–1856) was the daughter of Nicholas Fenwick, of Lemmington Hall, Edlingham, near Alnwick in Northumberland, and his wife Dorothy Forster, who was the ﬁrst cousin of Henry Taylor’s step-mother. Taylor’s tribute to his cousin’s mind and character and his account of her relations with the Wordsworths are found in his Autobiography of Henry Taylor, (2 vols; London: Longmans, Green and Co., 1885). £1,000-1,500 190 Wordsworth, William - [Mary Wordsworth - Katharine Southey] A Guide Through the District of the Lakes, in the North of England.

199 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. £600-700

She wrote newspaper articles explaining the issues in Italy, gave lectures and raised funds for the Italian cause in northern England and Scotland £150-200 203 No lot 204 [Jacobite Rebellion] - Barry, James, fourth Earl of Barrymore (1667-1748) Autograph Letter Signed “Barrymore”, addressed “Dear Madam”, discussing treatments by diﬀerent doctors, the settlement of a “troublesome aﬀair” in Ireland and family news, 3pp., 4to, old repairs at folds and margins 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. £100-150
205 [Jacobite Rebellion - Battle of Prestonpans] - Sir John Cope Two autograph letters from Sir John Cope to Lt.-General Thomas Fowke (“Dear Fowke”), sending news of national aﬀairs “The eyes of all Europe are upon our Aﬀairs in America, which ‘tis imagined will draw consequences in this part of the World, for which wee are so formidably prepared by our natural strength, the Navy, that if Spain will but continue to think according to her old proverb, Peace with England & War with all the World, so far only...”, expressing his desire (with a tacit reference to his unpopularity after 1745) (“I am just as desirous not to be employed, as those who could employ me are unwilling to do it, so in that we are perfectly agreed”), reporting that he hears well of Fowke’s Governership of Gibraltar, mentioning “Mr paymaster Pit”, telling him about the regime and life he follows at the spas of Bath and Cheltenham (... I ﬁnd the company at Chiltenham is not very numerous, and by those you name none very entertaining...”), thanking him for sending him a ﬁne Spanish horse, &c., 2pp & 2pp., St. James Place, 19 July 1753, & Bath, 8 July 1755 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. £400-600 206 [Jacobite Rebellion - Culloden] - Willem Annevan Keppel, 2nd Earl of Albemarle (1702 Autograph letter signed to Adair, concerning various individuals, mentioning Jones for Second Lieutenant in the Marines and requesting a warrant appointing William Hawkes Surgeon’s Mate in the King’s own Regiment, 1 leaf (with detached integral blank), 11 December 1756 Note: The 2nd Earl of Albemarle commanded the government front line at Culloden, having already been in charge of the government troops at Falkirk, later becoming Commander in Chief in Scotland.

The forts were at Fort William, Fort Augustus and Fort George. He was created Field Marshall in 1743 and had a prominent role in the 1745 Rebellion. Wade is also famous for building roads after the 1745 Rebellion to enable fast deployment of troops with a view to combating any future threats from the north. £100-150

208 Jacobite Rebellion, 1715 - Seized estates Historic document on vellum, dated 9 December 1718, being the settlement by the Commissioners appointed to sell the seized estates in England, Wales and Elsewhere except Scotland of the Traitors involved in the 1715 Jacobite Rebellion, awarding a considerable amount to Richard Dashwood, a Norfolk claimant, written in English on four sheets of vellum, with a striking calligraphic heading indicating the hearing was held at Essex House in London and the Commissioners present were George Treby, Sir Thomas Hales and Henry Cunningham, with John Bath, Sergeant at Law, with the ﬁne signatures of the three commissioners and the Royal Red Wax Seal against each signature, slight dusting to outer surface of the document, interior contents in ﬁne fresh order. 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. £400-500 209 James VII/II, King Document in favour of Neill Campbell of Duntroon, his Heirs male & of tailzie.. “Wee were graviously pleased to change the holding of such of the Lands & others therein mentioned as formerly held Ward, from Simple Ward to Taxtward” and “authorise & require you to pass the said Signature in the ordinary form...” Whitehall, 29th day of January 1685/6, signed by [John Drummond, 1st Earl of] Melfort, countersigned at head “James R”, 2 pages, professionally conserved £900-1,400

By Sir George Mackenzie of Roshaugh [sic.], His Majesties Advocat... manuscript title and 264 manuscript leaves in a neat hand, later 17th century, contemporary quarter calf over boards, occasional small tears with no loss to text, joints splitting, spine and boards rubbed and chipped Provenance: Bookplates of Robert Graham Note: George Mackenzie of Rosehaugh, c.1636-1691, was a Scottish lawyer, Lord Advocate and essayist. He is known for being the minister responsible for Charles II’s policy of quelling the Scottish Covenanters, earning him the nickname ‘Bluidy Mackenzie’. However, he is also credited with founding the Advocates Library in Edinburgh. No publication of this title by George Mackenzie of Rosehaugh seems to exist, however another manuscript copy in octavo appears on p.11 of Catalogue of manuscripts relating to genealogy and heraldry, preserved in the library of the Faculty of Advocates, at Edinburgh, 1852, being from the collection of Robert Milne. Interestingly, Robert Graham, a literary patron of Robert Burns, married a Peggy Milne, creating a possible ink between these two manuscripts.

This letter is written to Emilie from Germany (in German) in 1957, where Schindler had travelled to seek restitution money for his factory and equipment. In the ﬁfth paragraph of the letter, Schindler discusses these proceedings: “My aﬀairs have gone well, I hope in 6 weeks to be able to request the money for the object.” (At the time, Schindler had hoped he could claim 2 million DM, but only recieved DM46,000). From the letter, it is clear that money was a struggle, with Schindler writing: “Above all, I have no money for a coat, it will soon become quite cold, so that I must wait until the end of the month, somehow I will pull through.” Details of Oskar Schindler’s acquintances are also discussed. For example, Schindler writes: “Joel Brand, about whom I wrote to you in my last letter, mentioning that he had had a heart attack, is still in the university hospital and his wife has arrived from Israel. (Brand is the beniﬁciary and publisher of the book in the matter of Dr. Kastner, also a friend of Dr. Sedlatschek).” These men are known for their eﬀorts in saving Hungarian Jews from deportation to concentration camps, and similarly important ﬁgures are mentioned throughout the letter. £3,000-4,000

Note: Henry Taylor (1800-1886), English dramatist and poet, oﬃcial, and well-connected man of letters, met William Wordsworth and Robert Southey on a visit to the Lake District in 1823. Jane Taylor had a ﬁrst cousin Isabella Fenwick (1783–1856), and it was Henry Taylor who introduced Isabella to the Wordsworth family. Isabella was the daughter of Nicholas Fenwick, of Lemmington Hall, Edlingham, near Alnwick in Northumberland, and his wife Dorothy Forster, who was the ﬁrst cousin of Henry Taylor’s step-mother. Taylor’s tribute to his cousin’s mind and character and his account of her relations with the Wordsworths are found in his Autobiography of Henry Taylor, (2 vols; London: Longmans, Green and Co., 1885). “Isabella Fenwick ﬁrst signed the visitor’s book at Rydal Mount in June 1831 though she probably met the poet ﬁrst a year or two earlier. She spent months at a time as a guest of the Wordsworths before moving to Ambleside in 1838 to be close to her friends at Rydal Mount. In August 1838 she wrote to her cousin Henry Taylor that Wordsworth often visited her cottage, Gale House, at Ambleside, as a “refuge” from the crush of up to 30 visitors a day at Rydal Mount and for a month he and Mary Wordsworth were her guests there in February 1839. They conversed for hours at a time but Wordsworth also recited or read aloud to her portions of The Prelude, which he was then revising.... Isabella Fenwick often walked with Wordsworth among the nearby valleys and fells surrounding Lakes Windemere, Rydal Water and Grasmere, places that held so many associations with his poetic life. This woman of intelligence, imagination and strong aﬀections in some sense ﬁlled the gap left by Wordsworth’s sister Dorothy in her debilitating illness, and his letters to her in her absence from Ambleside and Rydal Mount vividly attest to his deep aﬀection for her. Trusted and loved as much by Mary and Dora as by Wordsworth himself, she was the mediating force which made possible Dora’s marriage to Edward Quillinan in April 1841.... Later, when work proceeded with the publication of Poems, chieﬂy of Early and Late Years, Isabella Fenwick undertook to copy large portions of the text for the printer. A few months later, probably late in 1842, Wordsworth accepted her oﬀer to take dictation of his notes to the poems, and they commenced work in January 1843. They completed their work six months later at Rydal Mount June 24th 1843. Among those outside the family, and many within it, there was no one better qualiﬁed for such a task, no one so in tune with its aim and spirit.” (Jared Curtis, The Fenwick Notes of William Wordsworth.) Dora and Edward Quillinan copied Isabella’s notes into a leather bound folio notebook for use by family and friends, completing this task on 25th August 1843. None of Isabella Fenwick’s original transcription of the dictated notes survives. “Two recent tours with family and friends provided impetus for his composing the [“Fenwick”] notes at this time. The ﬁrst was in the summer of 1840 when Wordsworth, his wife Mary, their daughter Dora, Isabella Fenwick and her niece [also Isabella Fenwick (later Piotrowski)], and Edward Quillinan and his elder daughter Jemima, travelled through the Duddon valley, visiting scenes Wordworth had known from his days at Hawkshead School and written of in The Prelude, The Excursion, The River Duddon, and in a number of descriptive poems centred on Black Combe... The second tour included his visits to Tintern Abbey in the Wye valley, and to Alfoxden and the Quantocks just before and after his daughter Dora’s marriage to Edward Quillinan in the spring of 1841... Of this second leg Isabella Fenwick wrote to Henry Taylor of their visit to Wells, Alfoxden, &c.: “He was delighted to see again those scenes... where he had been so happy - where he had felt and thought so much. He pointed out the spots where he had written many of his early poems, and told us how they had been suggested” (Jared Curtis, The Fenwick Notes of William Wordsworth, p.12-13). Curtis notes that “without the presence and encouragement of Isabella Fenwick, however, it is unlikely that the notes would have been composed at all.” Footnotes: 2) Dorothy “Dora” Wordsworth, the only surviving daughter of the romantic poet William Wordsworth, immortalised in Wordsworth’s poem, The Triad. Dora was devoted to her father and had a signiﬁcant inﬂuence on his poetry. Their relationship was especially close. In 1843, with Isabella playing a crucial intermediary role, Dora married Edward Quillinan aged 39 against her father’s strong opposition, and in 1847 died of tuberculosis. After her death, her father, distraught, planted hundreds of daﬀodils in her memory in a ﬁeld beside St Mary’s Church, Rydal, now owned by the National Trust.
3) A long news-ﬁlled letter from Mary Wordsworth, wife of the poet, to Isabella Fenwick, who seems to be the godmother of one of Mary and William’s children, disusssing Mr Wordsworth’s plans, Kate Southey, the health of her daughter Dora Quilllinan [neé Wordsworth] and the ecclesiastical appointments of her son William. 5) Wordsworth’s close friend, Isabella Fenwick, to whom he dictated what are now known as the “Fenwick Notes” is immortalised in two poems by the poet, The Star which comes at close of Day to shine, and On a Portrait of I.F., painted by Margaret Gillies 9) We are Seven was ﬁrst published in Lyrical Ballads in 1798. This version diﬀers from the published version in having “handkerchief” for “‘kerchief” in verse 11. 10) Goody Blake and Harry Gill was ﬁrst published in Lyrical Ballads in 1798. This version diﬀers from the published version in several instances; for example, in the third verse of the present manuscript the line reads “Ill fed was she, and thinly clad”, and the published version read “Ill fed she was.” Isabella Fenwick’s notes in the published edition: “Written at Alfoxden, 1798. The incident from Dr. Darwin’s Zoonomia. Thomas Thorp, 1797-1877, was educated at Trinity College, where he was elected a scholar in 1817, and a Fellow in 1820. “ He held a number of College oﬃces, including a tutorship and the vice-mastership (1843-4). Thorp is closely associated the Cambridge Camden Society, of which he was president for twenty years. The Society derived considerable support from William Whewell, Master of Trinity, [whom Wordsworth visited with Isabella Piotrowski [neé Fenwick] in 1845]. Thorp was strongly inﬂuenced by Romanticism and Wordsworth’s appropriation of whatever was ‘pure and imaginative, whatever was not merely utilitarian, to the service of both Church and State.”... Inﬂuenced by the Oxford Movement, he once said that Wordsworth might be considered among the founders of the Society” [http://trinitycollegechapel.com/about/memorials/brasses/thorp/ ] The archive also contains some typed transcripts of autograph letters which are no longer present in the archive.

Note: Edweard Muybridge (1830-1904), a brilliant and eccentric photographer, gained worldwide fame photographing animal and human movement imperceptible to the human eye. In 1872 former California Governor Leland Stanford asked Muybridge to determine through photography whether all four hooves of a galloping horse left the ground at the same time. By setting up multiple cameras to capture motion in stop-motion photographs, Eadweard Muybridge captured animals’ movement in a way that had never been done before. In the 1880s the University of Pennsylvania sponsored Muybridge’s research using banks of cameras to photograph people in a studio, and animals from the Philadelphia Zoo to study their movement. The human models, either entirely nude or very lightly clothed, were photographed against a measured grid background in a variety of action sequences, including walking up or down stairs, hammering on an anvil, carrying buckets of water, or throwing water over one another, eventually producing thousands of images of animals and humans in motion, capturing what the human eye could not distinguish as separate movements. Muybridge thought of himself primarily as an artist but also saw the scientiﬁc and commercial aspects of his inventions. He spent much of his later years giving public lectures and demonstrations of his photography and early motion picture sequences, inventing the “zoopraxiscope”, a device for projecting motion pictures that pre-dated the ﬂexible perforated ﬁlm strip used in cinematography. This device was later regarded as an early movie projector, and the process as an intermediate stage toward motion pictures or cinematography. In 1887 The University of Pennsylvania published 781 plates under the title Animal Locomotion in a series of volumes. The album oﬀered for sale, which contains 95 of these seminal photographs, was formerly in the collection of the Royal Scottish Museum and the Museum of Edinburgh. Muybridge’s inﬂuence was widely recognised by scientists and artists, Thomas Eakins, William Dickson, Thomas Edison, Marcel Duchamp, Harold Edgerton and Francis Bacon, amongst others, all acknowledging their debt to Muybridge’s pioneering work. £30,000-40,000 326 Prince Henry and Princess Alice, Duke & Duchess of Gloucester Dorothy Wilding Photograph, 14 x 11cm, famed and glazed, signed ‘Alice’ & ‘Henry’ to mount, 1963

We understand that your collection is worth more than the sum of its parts.
Collections sell better as collections. That belief is at the heart of our approach to auctioneering. Over the course of our long history, we have seen this borne out time and time again: from the contents of grand homes to corporate collections, from contemporary art to Chinese snuff bottles; there is little we have not handled and sold well.
Each collection is unique and often has an emotional connection to the owners who create or inherit them. Our team work closely with our clients to provide a carefully tailored approach to the sale of their collections.
For more information, or to discuss selling a collection at auction, please contact : Paul Roberts | Vice Chairman 0131 557 8844 | email@example.com Gavin Strang | Managing Director 0131 557 8844 | firstname.lastname@example.org
Personal, passionate and professional - we deliver outstanding results.
Textiles as Art Textiles from the Collection of Paul Reeves Spring 2017 Textiles have been a 50 year passion for Paul Reeves, starting when he was a young and inﬂuential clothes designer in the 1960s. The forthcoming auction is a determined aim to establish Textile Art rightly alongside the Decorative & Fine Arts. All the pieces will be presented in a manner which makes them eminently usable and ready to hang, many framed, others mounted to display with great eﬀect in either modern or period settings. The pieces will be chosen from his renowned collection, spanning some 100 plus years of Textile Design. There will, of course, be examples of work by William Morris, Walter Crane and C.F.A. Voysey from the late 19th century, but pieces from the 1920s and 30s and beyond will surprise as will 1960s embroideries by Beryl Dean, once Head of The Royal School of Needlework and 1980s works by Joy Clucas of the 52 Group and the Manchester Embroiderers' Guild. Textiles by painters such as Raoul Dufy, Salvador Dali and Alan Reynolds will illustrate the cross over already established between the diﬀerent ﬁelds of art. These will show that the link between Fine and Textile Art was already made but overlooked by the art establishment.

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 only accept liability for opinions given negligently or fraudulently. Subject to the foregoing neither we the auctioneer or our employees or agents accept liability for the correctness of such opinions and no warranties, whether relating to description, condition or quality of lots, express, implied or statutory, are given. Please note that photographs/images provided may not be fully representative of the condition of the lot and should not be relied upon as indicative of the overall condition of the lot. (2) Condition reports: Condition reports are provided on our website or upon request. The absence of a report does not imply that a lot is without imperfections. Large numbers of such requests are received shortly before each sale and department specialists and administration will endeavor to respond to all requests although we offer no guarantee. Any statement in relation to the lot is merely an expression of opinion of the Seller or Lyon & Turnbull and should not be relied upon as an inducement to bid on the lot. Lots are available for inspection prior to the sale and you are strongly advised to examine any lot in which you are interested prior to the sale.

This, however, shall not apply in the case of unnamed items, periodicals, autographed letters, music M.M.S., maps, drawings NOR in respect of damage to bindings, stains, foxing, marginal worm holes or other defects not affecting the completeness of the text NOR in respect of Defects mentioned in the catalogue, or at the time of sale, NOR in respect of lots sold for less than £300. (2) Clocks & Watches: All lots are sold “as seen”, and the absence of any reference to the condition of a clock or watch does not imply the lot is in good condition and without defects, repairs or restorations. Most clocks and watches will have been repaired during their normal lifetime and may now incorporate additional/newer parts. Furthermore, Lyon & Turnbull makes no representation or warranty that any clock or watch is in working order. As clocks and watches often contain fine and complex mechanisms, Buyers should be aware that a general service, change of battery or further repair work, for which the Buyer is solely responsible, may be necessary. Buyers should also be aware that Lyon & Turnbull cannot guarantee a watch will remain waterproof if the back is removed. Buyers should be aware that the importing watches such as Rolex, Frank Muller and Corum into the United States is highly restricted. These watches cannot be shipped to the USA and only imported personally. (3) Diamonds & Gemstones: Please note that diamonds and gemstones cannot be accurately graded and measured when mounted in jewellery. Unless it is stated in the catalogue and condition report that the item is accompanied by an independent report by a named gemmological laboratory, the information provided about the colour, clarity and size of a gemstone is the opinion of our department jewellery specialists. Please note in the event that Lyon and Turnbull has been given or has obtained certificates for any lot in the sale, Lyon and Turnbull nor the Seller accepts any liability for contradictions or differing certificates obtained by Buyers on any lots post sale. Diamonds and gemstones are not unmounted by the department, therefore any information provided in this instance is an approximate understanding of the quality of the gemstone under these limitations. Without an independent report the department are generally unable to give an opinion on any potential treatments a gem material has been subjected to. Many gemstones and diamonds have been subjected to a variety of treatments to enhance their appearance and unless stated buyers should presume gemstones/diamonds have been exposed to some sort of treatment. 13.
