The Orkney Books of John Davie Manson Robertson C.B.E., D.L., F.R.S.A.

Born to Orcadian parents, and moving to the islands as a teenager in 1943, John Robertson was committed to his heritage. His comprehensive collection of Orkney and Shetland books testifies to this. By profession, John Robertson was a law graduate and joint owner of the S & J D Robertson Group, Orkney oil distributors. However, his roles in the local community were highly varied. He was Chairman of a range of organisations: the Orkney and Highland Health Boards, the Scottish Health Management Efficiency Group, the North of Scotland Water Authority and the Lloyds TSB Foundation for Scotland. Outwith these positions, John Robertson was Honorary Sheriff for

the Grampian Highland and Islands area and a Deputy Lord Lieutenant for the County of Sutherland. Described as having a “passion for art”, John Robertson also took a great interest in Scottish artists, his collection ranging from the works of Arthur Melville to Stanley Cursiter, another son of Kirkwall. As evidenced by his book collection, he was also an avid reader. The earliest book from the collection is Reverend James Wallace’s A Description of the Isles of Orkney, published posthumously in 1693. Wallace was minister in Kirkwall from 1672-1688, and is rumoured to have inspired William Baikie to donate his library to the town. Founded in 1683, The

Bibliotheck of Kirkwall is said to be Scotland’s oldest public library. Wallace in fact kept Baikie’s donation of 150 books at his residence, before they were moved to St Magnus Cathedral. Reflecting Orkney’s Nordic past, the Icelandic historian Thormodus Torfaeuus’s work, Orcades seu Rerum Orcadensium Historiae, published in Copenhagen in 1697, also features. The book was translated into English in 1866, and opens with the rather uncomplimentary line: “Orkney was of old a nest of pyrates … until they were at last expatriated by Harold the Fair…” Published in 1807, Elizabeth, the Duchess of Sutherland’s book, Views in Orkney and on the Northeastern Coast

of Scotland gives a far more romantic view of the islands. The engravings of scenery and standing stones perhaps reflect why people are drawn to Orkney: for the beauty of the landscape, the ancient archaeological sites and the stories of Vikings which help to form a rich historical tapestry. John Robertson’s collection of Orkney and Shetland books reflects the history and culture of these islands. However, it is also a legacy of a book collector and highly respected member of Orkney society, who invested deeply in his heritage.

George Mackay Brown: an important collection of manuscripts and works The following 17 lots comprise part of an important collection of manuscripts and works by the Orkney poet, George Mackay Brown. A number of the manuscripts are unpublished or deviate significantly from the published works themselves. George Mackay Brown (17th October 1921 – 13th April 1996) is widely considered to be one of the 20th century’s greatest Scottish poets. Born, and living most of his life, in Stromness, George was the son of a tailor. An example of his early interest in writing can be found in lot 78: twelve pages from his homemade magazine The Celt, which he distributed to friends as a young teenager. At this time, George was taken ill with tuberculosis, which

would affect him for many years to come. The illness also prevented him from enlisting in the army during the Second World War and, in turn, allowed him to begin a career as a journalist with The Orkney Herald in 1944. The poet Francis Scarfe, billeted to Orkney in the same year, lodged in George Mackay Brown’s house and encouraged his interest in writing poetry. In his early thirties, George Mackay Brown attended Newbattle Abbey College in Midlothian. Here, another Scottish poet, Edwin Muir, worked as warden, and leant further encouragement to George. Whilst studying at Newbattle Abbey College, George and other students edited the college magazine, The Sun. Lot 88 contains a

collection of these volumes, several signed by Brown and Muir to the lower covers. George’s first volume of poetry, The Storm (see lot 77), was published in 1954. A first, or early draft of the poem Further than Hoy can be found in lot 93, with an additional unpublished stanza entitled “Futher than faith…” The collection also includes many notes and essays George wrote whilst conducting postgraduate research into the poet Gerard Manley Hopkins (see lot 91). A great interest in literature can be seen in the breadth of George Mackay Brown’s personal library. A large selection of his own books comprises lots 79, 80, 81, 83, 84, 85 and 86, several works including annotations and critical notes.

George Mackay Brown’s writing career flourished from the mid-1960s onwards, and he became a wellrespected poet and author of short stories. A selection of works inscribed by Ted Hughes (see lot 84) indicate the esteem with which Brown was held within his own profession, and he was awarded an MBE in 1974. Brown continued to write up to his death in 1996. The collection was left by George himself to his longterm friend and Literary Executor, Brian Murray, which then passed to Brian’s family.

The Andersons and Grahams of Edinburgh: a selection of family books

Proceeds from the following lots will help to protect and develop the unique Artiscience Library at Summerhall, Edinburgh, currently open pro bono to the public. The books come from a collection inherited and augmented by William Graham, JP, FRSAS (18551922), Banker, Author of The One Pound Note, Antiquary, Director of the Crieff Hydropathic, &c. They reflect not only his own interests and those of his wife Euphemia Cargill Graham (née Anderson), but also of their forebears going back four generations: the Andersons and Grahams of Edinburgh, and the Urquharts of Perth, inter alia. These included religious faith, study, and christian mission, trade and commerce, printing and education. For example, William’s father, George Graham, was a Printer in Nicolson Street, and his

uncle, George’s twin brother, John Graham, was for a time a bookbinder. George Graham sometimes went to Brethren Meetings in Nicolson Square and was a correspondent of P.H. Gosse. Whereas Henry Huth (see Lot 224) considered damaged books the “lepers of a library”, undoubtedly William Graham was a true bibliophile, revering the religious and historical texts which he owned and lavishing great care and evident skill in his own repairs and embellishments to the books he owned. In prior generations, William Anderson (1744-1804), ironmonger in the West Bow, was an Old Scotch Independent, (hence a friend of David Dale of Glasgow and New Lanark). William married Agnes Greig, cousin of Admiral Sir Samuel Greig, sometimes styled “Father of the Russian Navy”; and through this

relation, the great scientist Mary Somerville (aka Mrs Greig) was also a collateral connection. With William begins evidence of an interest in education which runs through subsequent generations. (For his support of the eccentric Andrew Donaldson, teacher of Greek and Hebrew, see Kay’s Portraits Vol.II)

Society, - being especially concerned to have the Bible translated into vernacular Gaelic, Irish and Iberian languages, - and overseas mission in Serampore, Bengal.

Their firstborn, Robert Anderson (1768-1850), ironmonger, merchant and Baltic trader of Edinburgh & Leith, joined the Scotch Baptists and co-founded the congregation which is now Bristo Baptist Church, whereas his step-brother,

Robert’s youngest son married Anne Urqhuart of Perth, whose elder brother, John Urquhart, was one of the so-called “St Andrews Seven” (See Piggin and Roxborough, 1985) – a favourite student of Thomas Chalmers, - inspiring amongst many others his classmate in Perth and St Andrews, Alexander Duff, the first official Church of Scotland missionary to

Christopher Anderson (1752-1852), author of Annals of the English Bible (1845), established the English Baptist congregation which eventually occupied the Charlotte Baptist chapel. Christopher vigorously pursued both inland mission, through the Edinburgh Gaelic Schools

India (See Duff’s Memoir in William Orme Memorials of John Urquhart Philadelphia, 1855, etc). Manuscript material from this source has recently been acquired by Edinburgh University Library, Special Collections. A family prosopography is available for interested bidders (PDF file).

Ascham, Roger

Elyot, Sir Thomas

The Scholemaster Or plaine and perfite way of teaching children, to understand, write and speake the Latin tong, but specially purposed for the private bringing up of youth in Gentlemen and Noble mens houses. London: Printed by John Daye, 1571.

The boke named the Gouernour deuised by syr Thomas Elyot knyght. Londini : [in ædibus Thomæ Bertheleti typis impress. Cum priuilegio ad imprimendum solum, An. 1544]. Fourth edition, small 8vo (137 x 81mm.), a2-[a8], A1-8 - Z8, a-d8, fine late 19th C or early 20thC panelled calf gilt by Henderson and Bissett, lettered in gilt, g.e., several leaves professionally repaired not affecting text, contemporary pen drawing of a lady’s face on a8, next to which in secretarial script is a prayer and the initials M. [D. ?, L. ? or (possibly) A. ?], presumably the owner: “From the horns of unicorns and the roaring of lions, good Lord, save thy poor handmaiden”. The reference to unicorns and lions is taken from Psalm 22, v.21. Lady Elyot’s (1500-1560/69) maiden name was Margaret à Barrow or Aborough, so one might speculate the initials are M.A.; lacking the title page, later reduced copies of Holbein’s portraits of Sir Thomas and Lady Elyot bound in, [ESTC S100426]

Provenance: William Graham, JP, FRSAS (1855-1922), Banker, Author of “The One Pound Note”, Antiquary & Book Collector.

Note: Like his father before him, and like his step-brother Christopher who vigorously supported Gaelic Schools, Robert Anderson (1768-1850) was devoted to the education of women, -- as was Sir Thomas Elyot (see previous Lot), -- determined that his daughters should be educated as well as his sons. This is a tradition which continues in Edinburgh. Similarly Roger Ascham served Queen Elizabeth, and on his death it is recorded that Elizabeth said she “would rather have cast £10,000 into the sea than lose her Ascham”. Inspired by this and by Joseph Lancaster, Robert Anderson’s daughter Euphemia Cargill Anderson, Sr. (1801-1856) and her elder brother Robert, Jr. (1799-1868), a mathematics teacher, opened the Gayfield Square School for Young Ladies in 1834. For a copy of the first edition, see Bonhams, November 9, 2016, lot 7, sold for £9500.

£4,000-6,000

Note: Sir Thomas Elyot’s The boke named the Governour appeared in 1531, one year before Machiavelli’s The Prince. This copy is of the fourth edition, the last to be published during Sir Thomas’s lifetime. It is reckoned the first book in Modern English (as contrasted with Old English or Middle English), and one of the earliest books exhibiting the spreading influence of the Renaissance and Humanism in England (see Printing and the Mind of Man, p.41, No. 191). Elyot’s 19thC editor, Henry Croft, described it as “the earliest treatise on moral philosophy in the English language”. It was intended to direct the education of those destined to fill high positions, and to inculcate those moral principles which alone could fit them for the performance of their duties. Margaret Elyot, née à Barrow or Aborough, was learned in her own right, personally tutored by Sir Thomas More, in whose house she was brought up. It may be speculated therefore that this might have been her copy: given the secretarial hand and her probable knowledge of the Miles Coverdale Bible (1535), the first complete Bible in Modern English, significantly comparable with her husband’s “The Governour”. The drawing and inscription is of particular interest. Drawing a “selfportrait” next to an inscription is not uncommon, and the drawing does echo Holbein’s portrait of Margaret Elyot. If Margaret did not have her own copy of the Holbein portraits, it is conceivable that she may have drawn her own “copy” here.

228 228 Chacón, Alfonso Historia utriusque belli Dacici a Traiano Caesare gesti ex simulachris quae in columna eiusdem Romae visuntur collecta. Roma: ex typ. Iacobi Mascarsi, 1616. Folio, 2 parts, including 132 plates (including 2 folding plates of the interior and exterior of the column) by Franciscus Villamena, later half calf, contained in a cloth box, small repair to the lower margin of the title-page, plate margins a little discoloured and one of two with short splits in the lower margins, the two folding plates with some creasing and with splits and repairs, print seller’s inscription in ink on the verso of plates 48 (except 110)-130 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

Warrick, belonging to the Marquis of Hertford”, with the dedication page annotated “Christina Rufford, daughter of Philip Rufford Esq. of Alcester in the County of Warwick, and wife of the above mentioned J[ohn] E[dward] B[evor] Jeffery. She was brought up by an aunt belonging to the Church of Rome and so became a [?revenant]”, a third carte de visite pasted in, some spotting Note: A contemporary review of Even Betting” has been pasted to the foot of the dedication page. Even Betting, 1869, 3 volumes, Proud Lucifer, 1877, 3 volumes, are also attributed to Burke O’Farrell by COPAC.

Many of the letters are sent from Grand Duchess Elena Vladimirovna and Elena’s three daughters (Marina, Elizabeth and Olga, Princesses of Greece and Denmark). Whilst the letters from the three daughters tend to be lighter in tone, letters from Elena herself speak heavily of anxieties regarding the present state of Europe, worries about her family and have a sense of nostalgia for the past. One letter sent from Athens dated December 1916 reads: “I must profit of a scarce occasion to write to you as, now, on account of the blockade, we can’t send letters by post anymore…it does not feel like Christmas somehow there is no peace and goodwill on earth. I am so sorry not to be able to send you a little present this year but unfortunately I have got no money myself as I can’t get it from Russia and we have got to be very economical… Our poor Greece is being so shamefully and injustly treated…they [the children] were very frightened the day the French bombarded Athens…” Another letter dated November 1917 reads: “…The news from Russia is indeed dreadful and you can imagine how anxious I feel for all my dear ones there…” It continues to report on the whereabouts of Russian family members, and Elena comments: “The past seems to be quite swept away, nothing of what we knew and loved exists anymore…” However, the family also experiences joy, as Elena’s daughter, Princess Olga of Greece and Denmark writes on a postcard dated 1921: “Here is a view of our house…Our lovely counsin Philip is to be christened on Sunday; he is very sweet and you would love him.” - the baby in question is the current Duke of Edinburgh. The archive shows the great resilience of a family who had been through very turbulent times: Grand Duchess Elena married Prince Nicholas of Greece and Denmark in 1902. Although she was not living in Russia at the time of the 1917 Revolution, she naturally was anxious about her family there. Further troubles hit the family as the Greek monarchy lost the support of the now Communist Russia and the ensuing political crisis forced Greek royals into exile. Whilst her daughters made very successful marriages (Princess Marina married the Duke of Kent and became aunt to Queen Elizabeth II), Elena’s letters show her moving between France and Greece, where she died in 1957. The collection also includes letters sent from Elena’s brothers: Grand Duke Cyril Vladimirovich, Grand Duke Boris Vladimirovich and Grand Duke Andrei Vladimirovich of Russia. Although there are fewer of these letters, the sense of nostalgia remains. In 1935, Andrei writes from Paris: “Now, in these days when all that was dear to us has passed, the golden days of childhood are a refuge to remember…A very hard time we have now, very hard…” Whilst a 1914 letter from Boris speakes of anxieties regarding the First World War: “We have all courage and hope that soon this awful war will come to a happy end for us all.”

Many have the negative number visible on the print having been scratched in the negative. Some images possibly in collaboration with or by William Henderson, Charles Scott, Henry Hinton, Narayan Darjee, George R. Ballinger, H.D. Rae, A.Z. [Albert Zorn] and Capt. Allan N. Scott. Ex libris of British diplomat and Governor of Bombay, Sir Henry Bartle Edward Frere” William Johnson worked as a clerk from 1848 until 1851 in Bombay [Mumbai] and was promoted to Assistant in the General Department in Girgaum, Bombay, where he worked until 1860-61. Although primarily a civil servant he practiced photography extensively, establishing a Photographic Studio in Grant Road, where he produced daguerrotypes and later albumen prints from wet plate collodion negatives. Johnson was one of the founding members of the Bombay Photographc Society in 1854 and served as the society’s Joint Secretary, as well as co-editor of its Journal. For a brief period in 1856-58 Johnson partnered with William Henderson to create photographs of the Indian Amateur’s Photographic Album, which was published by the Bombay Photographic Society and ran for a total of 36 issues between 1856 and 1858. Some of Johnson’s photographs for the Indian Amateur’s Photographic Album were reused in Photographs of Western India, and a few years after the Indian Amateur’s Photographic Album ceased publication, a number of photographs from it reappeared in Johnson’s publication The Oriental Races and Tribes, Residents and Visitors of Bombay: a Series

of Photographs with letter-press Descriptions [1863-66], the first two volumes of which comprised 51 mounted photographic prints. This work is considered the first ethnologic writing on India published with photographs. Interestingly, and helpfully, the present album has a few cropped part leaves loosely inserted, which give the title, number, name of photographer, type of negative, and description of the subject. For instance “Bombay. No. 5 Jooma Musjid. From a Collodion Negative, by H. Hinton, Esq. of Hornby Row Academy” This photograph is number 95 in volume 2 of Photographs of Western India in the copy (3 volumes, 290 albumen prints) belonging to the British diplomat and Governor of Bombay, Sir Henry Bartle Edward Frere, now in the DeGolyer Library, Southern Methodist University. (http://www.lib.utexas.edu/taro/ smu/00237/smu-00237.html ). Another cutting from the same work is headed “From a Collodion Negative, by A.A. Jacob, Esq., C.E.” and is inserted correctly at the photograph of “Dutch Tombs, Surat”. This photograph does not appear to be in the Frere copy . A third cutting of text (not inserted at the right place) is headed “Bombay. No. 16. A Second View of the Walkeshwar Temples. Photographed by Johnson and Henderson” This probably correlates to no. 122 in the Frere/DeGolyer Library, Southern Methodist University album “Walkeshaw, Bombay - Munguldass Temple [Johnson, William, Henderson, William] [attributed].” Not all the photographs in the present album are from Photographs of Western India.

Pursey, Edinburgh, No.55a to the print, framed and glazed, along with a scroll produced by Pursey, listing each sitter by name Note: J. Pursey’s photography studio was based at 135 Princes Street, Edinburgh. It would appear that many of the portraits in this photograph, particularly those of the men in the main body of the Church, were taken in Pursey’s studio and then placed into the image from which the photogravure was made. Pursey styles himself an ‘artistic photographer’. Pursey’s method seems to reflect the technique employed by David Octavius Hill in 1843, when he decided to create a painting commemorating the first General Assembly of the Free Church of Scotland. Lionel Gossman writes: “In preparation for this work, he [Hill] and Adamson took many photos of individuals and groups which he planned to represent in it; indeed, Hill’s canvas is often considered the first work of art to ever have been painted with the help of photographic images, even if, ironically, the photographs are still admired while the painting, finally completed 22 years later, is not.” [Gossman. Thomas Annan of Glasgow, 2015, p.28]

TERMS OF SALE

(b) Firm reserves may be no greater than lower pre-sale estimate level. (c) A reserve once set cannot be changed except with our agreement. (d) You may not bid or instruct or permit any other person to bid on your behalf on your own property. If the Seller breaches this prohibition, Lyon & Turnbull may treat the Seller as bound as Seller and as Buyer but without the benefit of Lyon & Turnbull Authenticity Guarantee or the reserve, and/or pursue other remedies. (e) We may sell lots below the reserve provided we account to you for the same sale proceeds as you would have received had the hammer price been the reserve. 7.

We shall be entitled to charge you for storage costs, charges shall be made at a reasonable daily rate;or (b) suggest that the item be transferred to a secondary saleroom for sale without reserve. All transferred lots will be sold for the best price on the day, this may not bear any reflection on the item’s original estimate. Lyon & Turnbull are not liable for any items (whether it be selling price or loss & damage) when transferred. (2) Aftersales: We reserve the right to accept an after-auction offer on a lot on behalf of the seller, at the agreed reserve price or above, for up to 48 hours after the original auction. In which case the same charges will be payable as if such lots had been sold at auction and so far as appropriate these Conditions apply. 9.

not act for Buyers in this role and does not give advice to Buyers. When Lyon & Turnbull make a statement about a lot it is doing so on behalf of the Seller of the lot. The Auctioneer normally acts as agent only and disclaims any responsibility for default by Sellers or Buyers. 3. BIDDING PROCEDURES AND THE BUYER (a) Bidders are required to register their particulars before bidding and to satisfy any security and credit references or arrangements before entering the auction room to view or bid; (b) High Value Lots and High Cumulative Value of Lots: If you wish to bid on any High Value Lot (a lot with a lower estimate of £30,000 or above) or if you are bidding on several lots with a total lower estimate value of £30,000 or above, you are invited to complete the High Value Lot pre-registration. After you have successfully registered as a bidder with Lyon & Turnbull, you should complete the High Value Lot pre-registration before the date of sale by contacting the Office Manager or on the date of sale at the registration area. Unless otherwise agreed by us, you will be permitted to bid for High Value Lots only if Lyon & Turnbull has confirmed your payment of deposit and your completion of the High Value Lot pre-registration before the sale. The Deposit required will be 10% of the lower estimate. Upon pre-registration, you should pay the deposit or such other sum as determined by Lyon & Turnbull dependant on circumstances, by way of bank transfer or credit card(s) acceptable to Lyon & Turnbull. Please note that Lyon & Turnbull does not accept payment from third parties and this also applies to agents. If you are not successful in any bid and do not owe Lyon & Turnbull any debt, the deposit will be refunded to you by way of wire transfer or such other methods as determined by Lyon & Turnbull. Please make sure that you provide your bank details in the pre-registration form. The exchange rate provided to us by the bank on the date of exchange is final. We will arrange to refund the deposit to you within seven days after the date of sale, however we do not guarantee when you will receive the payment due to the variance in time for banks to process fund transfers. Upon successful pre-registration, you will be given a numbered High Value Lot paddle for identification purposes. The auctioneer 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.

(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. (h) Telephone Bids: If a prospective Buyer makes arrangements with us prior to the commencement of the sale we will use reasonable efforts to contact them to enable them to participate in bidding by telephone. We do not accept liability for failure to do so or for errors and omissions in connections.

INCREMENTS Bidding increments shall be at the Auctioneer’s sole discretion. 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.

responsible for the acts or omissions of carriers or packers whether or not recommended by us.

(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.

(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.

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. (b) Please note that we do not accept cash payments over £5,000. (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.

(3) No purchase can be claimed or removed until it has been paid for.

(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; (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


Rare Books, Manuscripts, Maps & Photographs

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) wine: may only be sold to persons aged of 18 years and over. By registering to bid, you affirm that you are at least that age. On collection, you must provide positive proof of age should this be requested. Buyers of wines must make appropriate allowances for natural variations of ullages, conditions of corks and wine. Lyon and Turnbull can provide no guarantees as to how the wine may have been stored. There is always a risk of cork failure and allowance by the buyer must be made. Wine is sold “as is” and quality of the wine is entirely at the risk of the Buyer and no warranties are given. (8) 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/ahvlaen/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. 15. THIRD PARTY LIABILITY All members of the public on our premises are there at their own risk and must note the lay-out of the accommodation, safety and security arrangements. Accordingly, neither the Auctioneer nor our employees or agents shall incur liability for death or personal injury or similarly for the safety of the property of persons visiting prior to, during or after a sale. 16. GENERAL (a) We shall have the right at our discretion, to refuse admission to our premises or attendance at our auctions by any person.

(c) Notices to Lyon & Turnbull should be in writing and addressed to the Managing Director at 33 Broughton Place, Edinburgh EH1 3RR, quoting the reference number specified at the beginning of the sale catalogue. (d) Should any provision of these Conditions of Sale be held unenforceable for any reason, the remaining provisions shall remain in full force and effect.

(e) These Conditions of Sale are not assignable by either party without the other’s prior written consent. No act, omission or delay by Lyon & Turnbull shall be deemed a waiver or release of any of its rights. (f) The contract between the parties may be varied by the parties by agreement and in writing. 17. AUTHENTICITY GUARANTEE Lyon & Turnbull guarantees that the authorship, period, or origin (collectively, “Authorship”) of each lot in this catalogue is as stated in the BOLD or CAPITALISED type heading in the catalogue description of the lot, as amended by oral or written salesroom notes or announcements. Lyon & Turnbull makes no warranties whatsoever, whether express or implied, with respect to any material in the catalogue other than that appearing in the Bold or Capitalised heading and subject to the exclusions below. In the event Lyon & Turnbull in its reasonable opinion deems that the conditions of the authenticity guarantee have been satisfied, it shall refund to the original purchaser of the lot the hammer price and applicable Buyer’s Premium paid for the lot by the original purchaser. 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. This Guarantee is provided for a period of one year from the date of the relevant auction, is solely for the benefit of the original purchaser of the lot at the auction and may not be transferred to any third party. To be able to claim under this Authenticity Guarantee, the original purchaser of the lot must: (i) notify Lyon & Turnbull in writing within one month of receiving any information that causes the original purchaser of record to dispute the accuracy of the Bold or Capitalised type heading, specifying the lot number, date of the auction at which it was purchased and the reasons for such dispute; and (ii) return the Lot to Lyon & Turnbull’s registered office in the same condition as at the date of sale to the original purchaser of record and be able to

121

transfer good title to the Lot, free from any third party claims arising after the date of such sale. Lyon & Turnbull has discretion to waive any of the above requirements. Lyon & Turnbull may require the original purchaser of the lot to obtain, at the original purchaser of lot’s cost, the reports of two independent and recognised experts in the field. The reports must be mutually acceptable to Lyon & Turnbull and the original purchaser of the lot. Lyon & Turnbull shall not be bound by any reports produced by the original purchaser of the lot, and reserves the right to seek additional expert advice at its own expense. It is specifically understood and agreed that the rescission of a sale and the refund of the original purchase price paid (the successful hammer price, plus the buyer’s premium) is exclusive and in lieu of any other remedy which might otherwise be available as a matter of law. Lyon & Turnbull and the Seller shall not be liable for any incidental or consequential damages incurred or claimed, including without limitation, loss of profits or interest. 18.
