BOOKS PUBLISHED BEFORE 1600 1 Achilles Tatius Dell’amore di Leucippe, & di Clitophonte. Nuouamente tradotto dalla lingua greca. Venezia: appresso Domenico Cavalcalupo, 1563. 8vo., woodcut vignette on the title-page, printed in italic, early vellum, cracking of inner joints, ownership inscription on the title-page Note: USTC 807705. Translated by the Italian humanist Franceso Angelo Coccio. Previous edition in Venice in 1551.

£150-250

2 Camden, William Britannia sive florentissimorum regnorum Angliae, Scotiae, Hiberniae, et insularum adiacentium ex intima antiquitate chorographica descriptio. London: impens. George Bishop, 1594. 4th edition, 4to., woodcut titlepage with the royal arms, woodcut numismatic illustrations in the text, historiated and decorative woodcut initials, contemporary panelled calf, worn, piece missing from the upper board, lacking spine, lacking pages 95/06 (a blank?), 123/4, 637/8 (the separate title to Ireland, 639/40 and final blank leaf, top half of p59/60, small worm holes in the outer margin of the second half (no loss), various ownership inscriptions [And] Cooper, Thomas. Thesaurus linguae romanae et britannicae … quod vel latine complectatur amplissimus Stephani Thesaurus, vel anglice, toties aucta Eliotae Bibliotheca … Accesit dictionarium historicum & poeticum propria vocabula virorum, mulierum. Sectarum, populorum, urbium , montium, & caetorum locorum complectens … London: Henry Denham, 1578. Folio, title-page laid down, modern paper boards, apart from the prelims., lacking all before 7Dii, tear in 7Qi (no loss) (2)

Provenance: With the inscription of the print seller Naudet whose Christian name is unknown and whose business was at the Louvre. Naudet had the habit of signing prints that passed through his hands on the verso. Examples of similar inscriptions are known from 1760 to 1810. See: Les marques de collection de dessins et d’estampes, numbers L.1937 & 1938, In the present work the run of inscribed engravings bear the date 1802, except for plate 58 which is dated 1780. Taken in conjunction with the uniformity of the discolouration in the lower margin, the fact that the first 57 plates are without this subscription might suggest that this copy was originally put together in around 1802 or thereabouts from different sources. Note: Second edition of the series of engravings of Trajan’s Column, first published in 1576 and one of the most remarkable Renaissance series of illustrations. Although the column became an important source for artists and historians, viewing details of the reliefs presented obvious difficulties. In 1569, the Brescian painter Girolamo Muziano (1532-92) had been granted permission to publish prints of the frieze, which are thought to have been based on the drawings of Jacopo Ripanda (fl. ca. 1500-16), one of the first artists to make a close study of the column from a basket suspended from the top of the column. Many Renaissance artists, including Raphael and Guilin Romano, drew inspiration from the reliefs for their depictions of antiquity. The triumphal column erected by the Roman senate in 113 A.D. to celebrate the victories of the emperor Trajan (died 117) over the Dacians is one of the best-preserved monuments of Imperial Rome. This was the first publication to include a full series of illustrations of the sculpted reliefs

Note: Sir William Muir (1819-1905), Indian administrator, was stationed successively at in the districts of Cawnpore, Bundelkhand, and Fatehpur. The sepoy Mutiny broke out at Meerut on 10 May 1857 and spread rapidly. Muir, at Agra, where the situation was soon critical, advised vigorous action from the first. Akbar’s great fort of Agra became the refuge of the Christians. Moir vividly told the story of his experience for his children in his Agra in the Mutiny (1896). Soon there was neither government nor revenue; but as head of the intelligence department Muir held the dangerous position of centre of communication between the viceroy, Lord Canning, and the civil and military authorities right across India to Delhi, Lahore, and Peshawar, to Gwalior, Indore, and Bombay. (DNB supplement). Lee, the author of the second work, was the proprietor of the Railway Hotel at Cawnpore. The present copy appears to be a separate issue to that published in 1893.

Provenance: Bookplates of Robert Graham, 12th of Fintry (1749-1815), with the address: Robert Graham of Fintry, Excise Office, No27 George St., Edinburgh to the rear paste-down endpaper of one volume. Note: Robert Graham was a Commissioner of the Scottish Board of Excise, the address for the Edinburgh Excise office being found in the rear of one of these volumes. Robert Burns seems to have had a desire to work in the Scottish Excise, and spoke to his doctor on the matter, who in turn spoke with Robert Graham. It was helpful that Robert Burns and Robert Graham had made each others’ acquaintance at Blair Atholl the previous year, following Burns’s success as a poet. In a letter to a friend in August 1788, Burns mentioned Graham, writing that his hopes of working in the Excise depended on ‘Mr Graham of Fintry’. Robert Graham’s patronage of Burns did finally provide him with a position of Excise Officer for Dumfries, in 1789, and Burns worked in this capacity until his death.

Smith, in Dickens in the Original Cloth, p.103 notes that “...the first five issues were probably printed at a single impression and published with altered titlepapges to imply and encourage a rapid sale...The genuine second edition was the onevolume `Library Edition’ which Chapman and Hall published in 1862...”. All these issues were issued in identical bindings of violet wavy-grain cloth.

£250-350

Note: The title-page and upper cover of this work state that it is the ‘Septième édition’ of the work, whilst other copies state ‘Édition originale’, ‘Deuxième édition’ etc. However, another translation of the work into French does not seem to have been produced until Le Sagittaire published another edition of the work in 1946 (Llona’s text was also used for this). This, therefore, suggests that this copy is a first edition.

An accompanying document entitled ‘Explanation of the Index’ gives a detailed plate count up to volume 25, whilst Todd’s 1965 bibliography of the magazine (also included), has been studied and annotated in accordance with the collection. The majority of volumes have been bound in tan buckram with red morocco labels by Bayntun of Bath. The collection was started by Ralph Milbank Hudson II of the Friarage, Yarm, in County Durham, MP for Sunderland from 1918-1922. It was passed by descent to Major Paul Payne as a belated wedding present, due to his love of books. Major Payne and his wife sourced many of the missing elements from the set, and arranged for the books to be re-bound. In 1966 Major and Mrs Payne received a visit from a bibliographer of the Gentleman’s Magazine who was looking to publish a replica of the work. He had been advised that this collection had one of the most complete sets of plates and illustrations to be found.

MANUSCRIPTS

296 Album Amicorum, 1581-1585 belonging to David Graham, 6th laird of Fintry (1557-1592), 78 manuscript leaves including 6 coats of arms (5 of which are coloured, and 2 are those of the Barons of Stubenberg), many contributors seem to be of Teutonic origin, such as Marcus, Christopher and James Fuggeri, Barons of Kirchberg (1581), with the majority of inscriptions in Latin, and occasionally French or English, other contributors include Charles de Balsa, 1581, with a small, hand-drawn coat-of arms and Wolfgang Comes à Montfort, 1581, among others, later vellum, 8vo sized, a little soiling to leaves throughout, some leaves and coats of arms loose Provenance: David Graham, 6th laird of Fintry. One inscription reads: “Marg. Graham, her book”, suggesting that the book may have occasionally been used by later generations (Margaret Mackintosh, née Graham, was a granddaughter of David Graham); thence by direct descent within the Graham family. Note: Literally a ‘book of friends’, the album amicorum was created by young travellers to record meetings with acquaintances. They often include heraldic shields, mottoes and inspirational quotations, written for the owner. David Graham, 6th laird of Fintry, is notable for his role in the affair of the Spanish blanks. As a Roman Catholic, Graham formed part of a group of people who hoped to re-establish Catholicism in Scotland with the help of foreign armies. In 1576, he was only permitted to travel outside the country if David Lindsay and Thomas Fothringham of Powrie, “stood surety that he would do “nothing prejudicial in the realm during his absence” and “would not return without express licence.”” However, during his travels, he consorted with supporters of Mary Queen of Scots, including the Archbishop of St Andrews, James Bethune, and finally returned to Scotland in 1583. William Bowes, English ambassador to Scotland, named Graham “the obstinate Papist young Fintrie...” [Mudie & Walker. Mains Castle & the Grahams of Fintry, 1964] This Album Amicorum dates from the period of 1581, whilst Graham was on the continent, until around 1585, and the coats of arms and mottoes of foreign noblemen attest to David Graham’s travels and the connections he formed. One page bears the slogan Initium Sapientiaw Timor Domini and states that the entry was written in Paris. Another inscription is signed Ingolstadt. As the 1580s progressed, plans were formed for the King of Spain to invade England and Scotland, with the aim of re-establishing the Catholic faith. Mundie & Walker write: “After the defeat of the Spanish Armada in the summer of 1588, a fresh plan was devised for a Spanish landing in Scotland...The leader of this conspiracy...was Huntly, and Graham of Fintry was one of the Spaniards’ principal contacts in Scotland.” For his part in the plot, Graham was banished to the continent, however he did not obey this order and continued his rebellion. This led to Graham’s family seat, Mains Castle, being taken by the Constable of Dundee in 1589. Graham recovered the castle in 1590, but continued to conspire against the king, producing anti-Protestant propaganda, leading to the loss of his “movable property” and “all of the income” from his estates in 1591. Although the king gave Graham the opportunity to leave Scotland at this point, Graham declined. Graham’s downfall came in 1592, with the arrest of a George Ker, who was trying to leave the country. He was discovered with several incriminating letters addressed to the Duke of Parma and “eight papers, blank, except for the phrase “De vostre majestie tres humble et tres obesant serviteur and a signature...” An inquisition, accompanied by torture, showed that the blanks were to be filled up...to the effect that their signitories “should raise a power of horsemen and meet the Spanish armies at their landing...and convey them to England by all the forces they could procure upon the King of Spain’s charges.”” [Mudie & Walker, 1964] One of the signatories, David Foster, was an alias of David Graham. Graham was arrested, tried and beheaded at the Mercat Cross in Edinburgh on 15th February 1593.

302 Freud, Sigmund Typed letter signed (“Prof. Freud”), in German, to the Germanist Pieter Smink (“Sehr geehrter Herr”), about his work “massenpsychologie und ich-analyse”, discussing a proposed Dutch translation, asking him to write to his publisher for the conditions, requesting that he inform him of the name of the intended translator, as he cannot authorise a translation by somebody he does not know, and suggesting, finally, that he approach Dr J. van Emden in the Hague, who can either supply a translator or report on the one chosen by him: ...Der Autorisation wegen wollen Sie mir den Namen des Uebersetzers nennen, dem Sie die Aufgabe übertragen XXXXXX werden. Einer mir ganz unbekannten Person kann ich keine Autorisation geben..., 1 page, 8vo (223 x 150mm.), later manuscript annotation in pencil, Vienna, 27 August 1924, split along horizontal fold, creasing, a few tiny tears to lower edge, browning, two small stains Note: Freud’s work on group psychology and the analysis of the ego, Massenpsychologie und Ich-Analyse, was first published in Zurich in 1921. Partly motivated by observations made during the First World War, it underlines “the leader of the group’s central role and demonstrates that group cohesiveness derives from the fact that the members share a common ego-ideal or superego”. The typing errors in the letter suggest that it was Freud himself who typed it.

Orioli, who would then send the cheque to Lawrence in Switzerland, who would then ask Aldington or Koteliansky to post the books. On 17th August 1928, Lawrence wrote to Aldington: “Dear Richard, Could you send out the following orders...H.K. Beazley and Co., 19 Churton St. Victoria S.W.1. 3. copies...” However, it appears there was some confusion. Orioli claimed that Beazley had not paid him but Lawrence states that he had the cheque in another letter of the 17th August: “Dear Pino, Your letter now, with cheques from Foyle and Beazley...I have written now to Richard Aldington to ask him to send at once to... Beazley. 3. (you say not paid - but I have their cheque from you-)” The cheque appears to have been paid into Lawrence’s bank on 21st August, however confusion still seems to have abounded, as Lawrence writes to Orioli on 30th October 1928: “Dear Pino [,] This is from Beazley to say he has just paid £5”2”0” to my account, for his copies of Lady C.”

Lawrence, D.H. - Lady Chatterley’s Lover Cheque for £5.2.0 (five pounds and two shillings) from the Midland Bank Limited, signed to D.H. Lawrence by H.K. Beazley & Co., dated August 10th 1928, with Lawrence’s signature to the reverse Note: It is believed that this cheque was used to purchase 3 copies of Lady Chatterley’s Lover in August 1928. The provenance can be traced in a series of letters written by D.H. Lawrence. In August 1928, two men - Richard Aldington and S. Kotelinansky - were taking care of the many copies of Lady Chatterley’s Lover which had been rejected by British booksellers. Although the authorities were aware that copies of the book were being shipped to the UK from Florence by Pino Orioli, who helped to publish the work, and were intercepting them, they had no idea about the British stash.

Manuscript Scottish poetry, on 17 sheets

Napoleonic War proclamations and other documents, 1813-1815

sent from an unnamed poet to Mr (and occasionally Miss) Cowan, living on the High Street, Haddington, one poem entitled Sabbath Desecration is written on the verso of a summons for Jury duty, dated 1887, and is signed ‘Eppie Jamson’, although this may be a pseudonym, mostly written on franked wrappers, mostly 30 x 13cm Note: It is unclear who the poet responsible for these poems is, however many of them are written in Scots dialect or reflect Scottish locations. There are also several humorous poems and limericks, such as: A Gospeller preached at Dunbar,/ From the top of a barrel of tar;/ He knocked the top in,/ And sank to the chin,/ And his swearing was heard from afar. It appears that some of the poems may have been printed, looking at pencil notes to this effect on the manuscripts. One poem, written in pencil, also sates ‘never printed’. The recipient of the poems, Mr Cowan, is variously referred to as ‘stationer’ and ‘bookseller’ by the sender, and may have been editing or approving the poems.

Gavin Baddeley writes that Pace, “...made no bones about associating with the infernal...” calling him, “...a mysterious figure boasting the title ‘the Jackal of Egypt’...” However, it seems that any media reports regarding Pace’s Occult activities in the 1960s tended to be overblown, as Baddeley writes he was, “...never as black as the media liked to paint him.” Michael W. Ford writes extensively about Pace in his book Necrominion - Egyptian Sethanic Magick: as a teenager, he developed an interest in Egyptology: particularly mythology and religion. Around this time, Aleister Crowley, the English Occultist, was utilizing, “...a good amount of Egyptian symbolism in his writings and rituals...” As an adult, Ford writes, Pace identified as a “...Satanist, Luciferian and probably more accurately a “Sethanist”...” - the term “Sethanic” can be found on the initial page of the types “Necrominon”. However, in the work, Pace writes that he “prefers to be called a Luciferian.” The three books included in this lot would seem to be copies of Pace’s works, quite possibly created by Pace. A manuscript copy of the “Necrominion” is referred to by Ford as a “...handwritten fully illustrated grimoire...”, and Pace did present his teachings at Wiccan meetings in the 1970s. It has been said that Pace was a talented artist, who produced magical books (such as these), and some sources claim that Led Zeppelin guitarist, Jimmy Page, commissioned Pace to paint murals in the home on Loch Ness, which Page purchased from Aleister Crowley.

The Important Photography Collection of the Merchant and Anthroposophist Johannes Gottfried William Schröder (1870-1942)

513

Johannes Schröder (1870- 1942) was a wealthy German merchant whose photography collection visualises his interest in art, travel, and contemporary lives of local people in Asia and Africa at the turn of the twentieth century. Schröder became involved with anthroposophy after meeting its founder, Rudolf Steiner, in the dining cart of the Orient Express on a journey to Paris. The two instantly became friends, and Steiner was particularly interested in Schröder’s knowledge of East Asia, from his travels and his merchant company in Shanghai. In 1913, upon consulting with Steiner, Schröder founded the trading company Ceres which supplied colonial goods and quality food near Lesum, and also became responsible for the Anthroposophical Society of Bremen. Schröder lived in Shanghai from 1899 to 1905, and repeatedly travelled back to China even after he returned to Berlin to take up a post at the Foreign Office. The photographs capture scenes revealing the way of Chinese life, including the 1911 Xinhai Revolution, alongside more intimate images of friends and family. Schröder was a globetrotter, and a pioneer in utilising the invention of photography to document his time. His photographs not only allow us to relive his personal journey of discovery but are also extremely rare and precious records of the landscape, architecture, people and events of a bygone era.

will usually only accept bids made with the High Value Lot paddle or by its High Value Lot registered bidder. This applies to saleroom, telephone and absentee bids. Lyon & Turnbull has the right to change the High Value Lot pre-registration procedures and requirements from time to time without notice. (c) The maker of the highest bid accepted by the Auctioneer conducting the sale shall be the Buyer and any dispute shall be settled at the Auctioneer’s absolute discretion. (d) Once made, no bid may be withdrawn. (e) Our right to bid on behalf of Sellers is expressly reserved up to the amount of any reserve. (f) The right to refuse any bid is also reserved. (g) Commission Bids: While prospective Buyers are strongly advised to attend the auction and are always responsible for any decision to bid for a particular lot and shall be assumed to have carefully inspected and satisfied themselves as to its condition we shall, if so instructed, clearly and in writing execute bids on their behalf. Neither the Auctioneer nor our employees nor agents shall be responsible for any failure to do so. Where two or more commission bids at the same level are recorded we reserve the right in our absolute discretion to prefer the first bid so made.

5. THE PURCHASE PRICE For each lot purchased a Buyer’s Premium of 25% of the hammer price of each lot up to and including £100,000, plus 20% from £100,001 thereafter. VAT at the appropriate rate is charged on the Buyer’s Premium. No VAT is payable on the hammer price or premium for printed books or unframed maps bought at auction. Live online bidding is subject to an additional 3% premium (charged by the live bidding

service provider Invaluable). This additional premium is subject to VAT at the appropriate rate as above.

6. VALUE ADDED TAX Value Added Tax is charged at the appropriate rate prevailing by law at the date of sale and is payable by Buyers of relevant lots. (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. (2) Lots affixed with (*): A reduced rate of Value Added Tax on the hammer price of 5% is payable. This indicates that a lot has been imported from outwith the European Union. This reduced rate is applicable to Antique items. (3) Lots affixed with [Ω]: Standard rate of Value Added Tax on the hammer price and premium is payable. This applies to items that have been imported from outwith the European Union and do not fall within the reduced rate category outlined above.

7. DROIT de SUITE This symbol § indicates works which may be subject to the Droit de Suite or Artist’s Resale Right, which took effect in the United Kingdom on 14th February 2006. We are required to collect a royalty payment for all qualifying works of art. Under new legislation which came into effect on 1st January 2012 this applies to living artists and artists who have died in the last 70 years. 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. PAYMENT (1) Within 7 days of a lot being sold you will: (a) Pay to us the total amount due in cash or by such other method as is agreed by us. We accept cash, bank transfer (details on request), debit cards and Visa or MasterCard credit cards.

(2) Any payments by you to us may be applied by us towards any sums owing by you to us howsoever incurred and without agreement by you or your agent, whether express or implied.

9. TITLE AND COLLECTION OF PURCHASES (1) The ownership of any lots purchased shall not pass to you until you have made payment in full to us of the total amount due. (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. We can provide you with a list of shippers. However, we will not be responsible for the acts or omissions of carriers or packers whether or not recommended by us. (3) No purchase can be claimed or removed until it has been paid for. (4) It is the Buyer’s responsibility to ascertain collection procedures, particularly if the sale is not being held at our main sale room and the potential storage charges for lots not collected by the appropriate time. (5) Export of goods: Buyers intending to export goods should ascertain (a) whether an export licence is required and (b) whether there is any specific prohibition on importing goods of that character, e.g. items that may contain prohibited materials such as ivory or rhino horn. 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;

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 safety regulations (items manufactured prior to 1950 are exempt from any regulations). 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 (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.

13. CITES Please be aware that all lots marked with the symbol Y may be 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. SALE BY PRIVATE TREATY (a) The same Conditions of Sale (Buyers) shall apply to sales by private treaty. (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.

This Guarantee does not apply if: (i) the catalogue description was in accordance

with the opinion(s) of generally accepted scholar(s) and expert(s) at the date of the sale, or the catalogue description indicated that there was a conflict of such opinions; or (ii) the only method of establishing that the Authorship was not as described in the Bold or Capitalised heading at the date of the sale would have been by means or processes not then generally available or accepted; unreasonably expensive or impractical to use; or likely (in Lyon &Turnbull’s reasonable opinion) to have caused damage to the lot or likely to have caused loss of value to the lot; or (iii) there has been no material loss in value of the lot from its value had it been in accordance with its description in the Bold or Capitalised type heading.

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 endeavour to undertake such bids to the best of our abilities. This service is available entirely at our discretion and at the bidder’s risk.

Payment is due within seven (7) days of the sale. Lots purchased will not be released until full payment has been received. Payment may be made by the following methods:

1 – Government issued photo ID (Passport/Driving licence) 2 – Proof of address (utility bill/bank statement). We may, at our option, also ask you to provide a bank reference and/or deposit. By registering for the sale, the buyer acknowledges that he or she has read, understood and accepted our Conditions of Sale. Bidding At the Sale Registered bidders will be assigned a bidder number and given a paddle for use at the sale. Once the first bid has been placed, the auctioneer asks for higher bids in increments determined by the auctioneer. To place your bid, simply raise your paddle until the auctioneer acknowledges you. Please ensure that the auctioneer repeats your bidder number correctly when confirming the sale. 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.

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.
