AN IMPORTANT COLLECTION OF WORKS BY MURIEL SPARK, LOTS 104-117 for The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie. Spark (Camberg) was a gifted student, even winning a poetry competition commemorating the centenary of the death of Sir Walter Scott, with her poem Out of a Book, 1933 [SEE LOT 104]. Following a short period working as an English teacher and then as a secretary at an Edinburgh department store, the young Muriel Spark emigrated to Southern Rhodesia (Zimbabwe), marrying Sidney Oswald Spark in 1937. Samuel Robin Spark was born in 1938; however the Sparks’ marriage was not a happy one and broke up in the early 1940s, with Muriel Spark returning to the United Kingdom in 1944. For the latter part of the Second World War, Muriel Spark worked for MI6, only beginning to write seriously following the end of the conflict. She began her first novel, The Comforters, in 1954 [SEE LOT 107]. The work was published in 1957 to great acclaim, including a very positive review by Evelyn Waugh. Spark completed four further novels before the publication of her best known work, The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie, in 1961 [SEE LOT 112]. During this time, Spark was living in London, whilst her son was resident with her parents in Edinburgh. Many of the books included in the collection have been inscribed to Robin from his mother, whilst other works are inscribed to “Mother & Dad”. During the 1960s, Spark relocated to New York, before moving to Rome in 1967 and then up to Tuscany in 1979. Her final novel to be completed, The Finishing School, was published in 2004, with a poetry compendium, All the Poems, published soon after. Muriel Spark passed away in 2006, her literary output spanning over 70 years, including 22 published novels.
The following fourteen lots comprise a very personal collection of books, and other items, relating to Muriel Spark, having been in the possession of her son, Robin. Muriel Spark, née Camberg, was born in Edinburgh in 1918, attending the city’s James Gillespie’s High School for Girls. Her time at the school is often cited as being an inspiration
Muriel Spark’s great contribution to literature has been widely recognised, and she was made a Dame Commander of the British Empire in 1993. Her obituary in the Guardian newspaper on 17th April 2006 wrote that Spark has a “place in the most hallowed annals of Scottish and English literature…” The collection here, with inscriptions from ‘Mum’ and ‘Mummy’, shows another aspect of Muriel Spark’s life: as a mother and daughter, sharing her work with her family.

203 DUKES OF HAMILTON – CARTE‑DE‑VISITE ALBUM 118 cartes‑de‑visite, 3 cabinet cards, 14 albumen prints relating to the Dukes of Hamilton, probably compiled by Lady Mary Victoria Douglas‑Hamilton (1850‑1922), including photographs by Disdéri, Camille Silvy, Henry Peach Robinson, Alexander Bassano, Serge Levitsky, John Mayall and Thomas Annan, 19th century embossed morocco album, some fading and occasional light foxing, clasp broken, rubbed Provenance: From a private collection, purchased in Florence in 1968 Note: The album seemingly once belonged to a member of the immediate family of William Douglas‑Hamilton, 11th Duke of Hamilton (1811‑1863). It was probably compiled by his daughter, Lady Mary Victoria Douglas‑Hamilton (1850‑1922), who married Prince Albert I of Monaco in 1869. That marriage was annulled ten years later and she subsequently married the Hungarian nobleman Tasziló Festetics de Tolna. Among her descendants are Prince Rainier III of Monaco, the fashion designer Prince Egon von Fürstenberg, the socialite and actress Princess Ira von Fürstenberg and the Czech Minister of Foreign Affairs Prince Karel Schwarzenberg. The album contains eight portraits of Lady Mary Victoria, including an engagement portrait taken with her first husband, Prince Albert I of Monaco. Among the other members of her family represented in the album are her father, the 11th Duke of Hamilton (7); her mother, Princess Marie Amelie of Baden (2); her brother, the 12th Duke of Hamilton (2); her younger brother, 7th Earl of Selkirk (1); her cousin, Lady Susan Vane‑Tempest (8); her cousin, the 6th Duke of Newcastle (7); his wife, the Duchess of Newcastle (8); and their son, the 7th Duke of Newcastle (2). Lady Susan Vane‑Tempest (1839‑1875), daughter of the 5th Duke of Newcastle, was for several years a mistress of the Prince of Wales (later King Edward VII). Fearful of a scandal, he distanced himself from her when she bore his illegitimate child in 1871. Nothing is known of the baby’s subsequent fate. Lady Susan died four years later, aged only 35. The album also contains a number of views of Hamilton Palace, the Hamilton Mausoleum, and Brodick Castle. There are also several reproductions of works of art depicting Lady Mary Victoria’s ancestors: the notorious William Beckford: his wife Lady Margaret Gordon: and their daughter, Susan Euphemia Beckford, who married the 10th Duke of Hamilton in 1810. £800‑1,200 204 FRITH, FRANCIS Diamond Jubilee, c.1897, silver gelatin print, c.44 x 58cm, framed and glazed £100‑150

He moved to Auckland in the 1870’s where he met businessman Henry Partridge who, over 30 years, commissioned from Lindauer numerous portraits of eminent Maori, as well as large‑scale depictions of traditional Maori life and customs. Many prominent Maori chiefs commissioned his work, which accurately records their facial tattoos, clothing, ornaments and weapons. His life‑size portraits were exhibited by Sir Walter Buller at the Colonial and Indian Exhibition, 1886, and in 1901 Partridge, Lindauer’s earliest and most important patron, opened a gallery in Auckland which featured 40 of Lindauer’s Maori portraits. By the time Partridge sold his Lindauer collection to the Auckland Art Gallery in 1915, there were 62 portraits. The historian James Cowan (1870‑1943), who wrote the descriptive catalogue of the exhbition, described the collection as ‘Unrivalled in the world’ and a record of the ‘old order’ which in his opinion ‘passed away forever’ with King Tawhiao’s death in 1894. £1,000‑1,500

(1) Lots affixed with (†): Value Added Tax on the hammer price is imposed by law on all items affixed with a dagger (†). This imposition of VAT maybe because the Seller is registered for VAT within the European Union and is not operating under a Margin Scheme.

This royalty will be charged to the Buyer on the hammer price and in addition to the Buyer’s premium. It will not apply to works where the hammer price is less than €1,000 (euros). The charge for works of art sold at and above €1,000 (euros) and below €50,000 (euros) is 4%. For items selling above €50,000 (euros), charges are calculated on a sliding scale. All royalty charges are paid to the Design and Artists Copyright Society (‘DACS’) and no handling costs or additional fees are retained by the auctioneer. Resale royalties are not subject to VAT. Please note that the royalty payment is calculated on the rate of exchange at the European Central Bank on the date of the sale. More information on Droit de Suite is available at www.dacs.org.uk. 8.

(2) You shall at your own risk and expense take away any lots that you have purchased and paid for not later than 7 working days following the day of the auction or upon the clearance of any cheque used for payment whichever is later.

It is the buyer’s sole responsibility to obtain any relevant export or import licence. The denial of any licence or any delay in obtaining licences shall neither justify the recession of any sale not any delay in making full payment for the lot. 10. REMEDIES FOR NON·PAYMENT OR FAILURE TO COLLECT PURCHASES (1) If any lot is not paid for in full and taken away in accordance with these Conditions or if there is any other breach of these Conditions, we, as agent for the Sellers and on their behalf, shall at our absolute discretion and without prejudice to any other rights we may have, be entitled to exercise one or more of the following rights and remedies: (a) to proceed against you for damages for breach of contract; (b) to rescind the contract for sale of that lot and/or any other lots sold by us to you; (c) to resell the lot (by auction or private treaty) in which case you shall be responsible for any resulting deficiency in the total amount due (after crediting any part payment and adding any resale costs); (d) to remove, store and insure the lot in the case of storage, either at our premises or elsewhere and to recover from you all costs incurred in respect thereof; (e) to charge interest at a rate not exceeding 1.5% per month above the current base rate on all sums outstanding for more than 7 working days after the sale; (f) to retain that or any other lot sold to you until you pay the total amount due; (g) to reject or ignore bids from you or your agent at future auctions or to impose conditions before any such bids shall be accepted; (h) to apply any proceeds of sale of other lots due or which become due to you towards the settlement of the total amount due by you and to exercise a lien over any of your property in our possession for any purpose until the debt due is satisfied. 11. DESCRIPTIONS AND CONDITION (1) Whilst we seek to describe lots accurately, it may be impractical for us to carry out exhaustive due diligence on each lot. Prospective Buyers are given ample opportunities to view and inspect before any sale and they (and any independent experts on their behalf) must satisfy themselves as to the accuracy of any description applied to a lot. Prospective Buyers also bid on the understanding that, inevitably, representations or statements by us as to authorship, genuineness, origin, date, age, provenance, condition or estimated selling price involve matters of opinion. We undertake that any such opinion shall be honestly and reasonably held and 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. Our condition reports are not prepared by professional conservators, restorers or engineers. Our condition report does not form any contract between Lyon & Turnbull and the Buyer. The Condition Reports do not affect the Seller’s obligations in any way.
(3) Estimates: Estimates are placed on each lot to help Buyers gauge the sums involved for the purchase of a particular lot. Estimates do not include the Buyer’s Premium or VAT. Estimates are a matter of opinion and prepared in advance. Estimates may be subject to change and are for guidance only and should not be relied upon. (4) Catalogue Alterations: Lot descriptions and estimates are prepared in advance of the sale and may be subject to change. Any alterations will be announced on the catalogue alteration sheet, made available prior to the sale. It is the responsibility of the Buyer to make themselves aware to any alterations which may have occurred. (5) Electrical Goods: are sold as “works of art” only and if bought for use must be checked over for compliance with safety regulations by a qualified electrician first. Use of such goods is entirely at the risk of the Buyer and no warranties as to safety of the goods are given. (6) Upholstered items: are sold as “works of art” only and if bought for use must be checked over for compliance with current safety regulation. Use of such goods is entirely at the risk of the Buyer and no warranties as to safety of the goods are given. Lyon & Turnbull provide no guarantee as to the originality of any wood/material contained within the item. (7) Special terms may be used in catalogue descriptions of particular classes of items (Books, Jewellery, Paintings, Guns, Firearms etc.) in which case the descriptions must be interpreted in accordance with any glossary appearing in the catalogue. These notices and terms will also form part of our terms and conditions of sales. 12. BOOKS, CLOCKS & WATCHES, DIAMONDS & GEMSTONES (1) Books-Collation: If on collation any NAMED item in the sale catalogue proves defective, in text or illustration the Buyer may reject the lot provided he returns it within 21 days of the sale stating the defect in writing. 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. CITES Please be aware that all lots marked with the symbol Y are subject to CITES regulations when exporting these items outside the EU. These regulations may be found at http://www.defra.gov.uk/ahvla-en/imports-exports/cites/
Lyon & Turnbull accepts no liability for any lots which may be subject to CITES but have not be identified as such. 14.

(b) Private treaty sales made under these Conditions are deemed to be sales by auction and subject to our agreed charges for Sellers and Buyers. (c) Lyon & Turnbull undertakes to inform the Seller of any offers it receives in relation to an item prior to any Proposed Sale, excluding the normal method of commission bids. (d) For the purposes of a private treaty sale, if a lot is sold in any other currency than Sterling, the exchange rate is to be taken on the date of sale. 15.

If there is any doubt at this stage as to the hammer price or buyer it must be brought to the auctioneer’s attention immediately. All lots will be invoiced to the name and address given on your registration form, which is non-transferable.
Payment By phone A limited number of telephone lines are available for bidding by phone through a Lyon & Turnbull representative. Phone lines must be reserved in advance. All bid requests must be received an hour before the sale. All telephone bids must be confirmed in writing, listing the relevant lots and appropriate number to be called. We recommend that a covering bid is also left in the event that we are unable to make the call. We cannot guarantee that lines will be available, or that we will be able to call you on the day, but will endeavor to undertake such bids to the best of our abilities. This service is available entirely at our discretion and at the bidder’s risk. In writing Bid forms are available at the sale and/or the back of the catalogue. These should be submitted in person, by post, or by fax as soon as possible prior to the sale and we will bid on your behalf up to the limit indicated. In the event of receiving two identical bids the first one received will take precedence. All bids must be received an hour before the sale. This service is entirely at the bidder’s risk. On the internet A fully-illustrated catalogue is available on our website. Registered bidders may leave absentee bids through the website and will receive email confirmation of their bid. Live online bidding (powered by Invaluable) is also available, accessible either through our website or at www.invaluable.com. Please note that an additional 3% premium is charged by Invaluable for this live online service.
