[Amsterdam, 1606 or later], 395 x 523mm., hand‑coloured engraved map, strengthened on verso at centre fold, 2 vertical tears repaired with strengthening on verso, small tear at E & W edge strengthened on verso, top corners torn away (just touching plate mark top Left), signed Eeeeeeee on verso and with “America” at head of page Note: In 1604, Jodocus Hondius purchased the plates of Mercator’s Atlas, many of which had been drawn by the great mapmaker himself. The Hondius family updated Mercator’s plates and added maps in subsequent editions, issuing an atlas known to posterity as the “Mercator‑Hondius Atlas”, first published in 1606 and frequently reprinted. “Produced on a stereographic projection like more and more maps of the time, this map is an amalgam of various sources. It

incorporates a more correct west coast of South America and narrows still further the longitudinal width of New Spain at the Tropic of Cancer, making it just 10°, much closer to reality. However, like all cartography before, it still retains an enlarged North American continent. A Plancius type depiction of Newfoundland occurs alongside a typical period representation of the east coast, with a more protruding Virginia than usual. Various scenes taken from the earlier volumes of de Bry’s Grand Voyages adorn the whole. Particularly notable is the native Brazilian scene illustrating the method used to make a local beverage, derived from Hans Staden’s voyage as recorded by de Bry. There are various galleons, kayaks and Indian canoes along with a pair of birds perched on the inset.” [Burden] £2,000‑3,000

84 Elyot, Sir Thomas 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; Family books relating to the Andersons and Grahams of Edinburgh 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 “self‑portrait” 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. £3,000‑4,000

London: James Nisbet & Co., 1887. 8vo, inscribed “For the Queen” to half‑title, with several manuscript corrections, probably by Tulloch, with several bound‑in notes; and a copy of Tulloch’s 1887 The Story of the Life of Queen Victoria; Photograph album of the family of Principal John Tulloch, including several family photographs, but also photographs of Scottish scenes by James Valentine, various University professors, a golfing photograph including Tom Morris and photographs of Queen Victoria, Prince Alfred, the Prince and Princess of Wales and Balmoral Castle; Principal John Tulloch certificate appointing John Tulloch one of the Chaplains in Ordinary in Scotland, dated 29th July 1859, signed by A. Carnegy Ritchie and George Dalziel, with red seal , framed and glazed (6) Provenance: From the family of the author, W. W. Tulloch. Note: The two volumes entitled “Life of Queen Victoria” subsequently became Tulloch’s 1887 “The Story of the Life of Queen Victoria”. Although the volumes are not signed by the Queen, several annotations seem to be hers. For example, in part iii “The Young Wife and Mother”,

the proof copy states on p.89: ...one of Her Majesty’s ladies‑in‑waiting, writes “that the Queen’s look and manners were very pleasing; her eyes much swollen with tears... The latter part of the sentence has been crossed through, and “omit not true” written in the outer margin. This section of the sentence does not appear in the final version. The second volume of the proof copy, containing a fuller version of the text, states on the title‑page “This contains the Queens [sic.] own corrections and her own writing, WWT.” This volume contains small corrections and annotations, such as a ruled through section on p.24 with the pencil note “a complete myth”. Other notes, possibly in Tulloch’s hand, are in ink. One such note reads: Would the Queen graciously permit the subsequent letter with which Her Majesty honoured Mr. Tulloch to appear here? A pencilled reply below reads: Certainly, with an indistinct initial, which may be “VR”. Tulloch’s connection to Queen Victoria may have developed through his father, Principal John Tulloch, who was one appointed of Her Majesty’s Chaplains for Scotland. This led him to preach several sermons for the Queen. The accompanying photograph album and certificate of appointment relate to John Tulloch. He was evidently well connected – not only does the album feature photographs of the Queen and her family, but also of figures such as Tom Morris, playing golf at St Andrews, where Tulloch was principal of St Mary’s College. £4,000‑6,000

144 Hogg, James Scottish Pastorals, Poems, Songs, &c. Mostly written in the Dialect of the South. Edinburgh: Printed by John Taylor, Grassmarket, 1801. First edition, 8vo, [1‑5], 6‑62, 19th century calf‑backed cloth, margins seemingly trimmed with scissors or a knife affecting a letter on p.53, several letters on p. 59‑62, lower corner of p.58 torn away with loss of 2 or 3 letters, some dust‑soiling, chiefly to title‑page and verso of final leaf, spine partly detached (and loosely inserted), 2 small numerals in ink at head of title page in inner margin Note: VERY RARE. The first edition of Hogg’s Scottish Pastorals is very rare and must have been printed in fairly small numbers. COPAC records only 6 copies in UK libraries (including NLS, Edinburgh and Glasgow University). Scottish Pastorals was published when Hogg was thirty years old and running the sheep‑farm of Ettrickhouse in the Ettrick valley. The poems offer a striking picture of rural Scottish life in the early nineteenth century and contain a good deal of raw energy. The year after its publication Hogg met Sir Walter Scott, of whom he later wrote an unauthorized biography. He became widely known as the “Ettrick Shepherd”, a nickname under which some of his works were published. He is best known today for his novel The Private Memoirs Other fees apply in addition to the hammer price, please see the ‘Buyer’s Guide’ section on page 2

and Confessions of a Justified Sinner. His other works include the long poem The Queen’s Wake (1813), his collection of songs Jacobite Reliques (1819), and his two novels The Three Perils of Man (1822), and The Three Perils of Woman (1823). According to his “Memoir of the Author’s Life” Hogg arranged for the Scottish Pastorals to be printed after delivering sheep to market in Edinburgh, writing out some of the poems from memory, and engaging ‘a person to print at my expense’. As this was undertaken virtually on the spur of the moment Hogg selected, as he later stated, not neccesarily the best poems but those he could remember most. The printer was John Taylor, a stationer, whose premises were opposite the sheep pens in Edinburgh’s Grassmarket. Taylor printed mostly cheap chapbooks, of typically poor quality, and is unlikely to have sold many copies from his modest premises while Hogg gave away copies to friends so the publication cannot have been a commerical success. Hogg too was mortified to find numerous textual misprints, so much so that in later life he took little pride in his first collection of poems in print. Provenance: Dr James Fairweather Milne (1896‑1985), one‑time General Practitioner at Boddam, bequeathed to 3rd cousin, the vendor. £600‑900

Ans. – I have always concurred that this was occasiond by disease at one period or other in the season. It is ten to one that it is from an unhealthy sheep that it is taken – if at any time the sheep should appear sound and well it will be found that it was affected by .... dyssentry... paralytic affection..

181 [Ireland] – Downey, Edmund, 1856‑1937, Irish novelist and publisher Manuscript of an unpublished novel set in Ireland in the mid‑nineteenth century. Folio. Approximately 524 pages, 65,000 words. N.D. [c.1890]; Downey, Edmund Notes for an Irish Biographical Dictionary. Two exercise books kept in pencil and ink. Approximately 70 pages in total. c.1910 Provenance: Edmund Downey archive Note: Edmund Downey was born in Waterford. In 1878 he moved to London where he began work with the publishers Tinsley Brothers. In 1883 he formed his own publishers, Ward and Downey, specialising in three‑deckers for the library market. He retired in 1890 to Waterford, where he founded a new firm Downey and Co. He wrote fiction under the pseudonym F.M. Allen, mainly with Irish settings, which had some success. In 1905, Downey edited Charles Lever: His Life in His Letters (William Blackwood). Untitled, this is a substantial anonymous manuscript of a novel, 38 chapters in length. The main part of the manuscript is in an unidentified hand. However, it has been heavily corrected and amended by Edmund Downey with certain original passages towards the end also in his hand. From a reading of the manuscript it comes across as a literate production of a professional author. The story opens in Sligo with young men hare coursing on Carrowkeel in the Bricklieve Mountains. The main plot involves a love story concerning Louis Beauchamp of the Sligo

Yeomanry. Later parts include scenes set at the Curragh, the appearance of the “fascinating siren Mollie Baldwin”, and the curse of mortgaged estates. At one point the manuscript has been paginated in pencil (with the exception of extra four pages). Several leaves appear to be missing, but in some cases the sense continues and it seems likely that the text of those intervening leaves was deleted and discarded in the correction stage. There are occasional marginal tears and some soiling and browning. Some damp‑staining in one place has partially fused two leaves, causing some losses, but it remains (just) legible bar a few words. The novel may have been destined for the three‑decker market. £500‑700

Lugard’s letter from Afghanistan speaks of a longing to head back to India and rejoin Seton. In 1851, after a spell in Ireland, Alexander Seton was appointed to command the drafts of soldiers heading for the Cape of Good Hope. He was dispatched on the doomed ship. the HMS Birkenhead. On 26th February 1852, the ship struck a rock and began to sink. Seton calmly organised all women and children on the ship into the lifeboats, but the boats could not take the men onboard. Alexander Seton went down with the ship, and has subsequently been seen as a hero, commemorated in poems such as Sir Francis Doyle’s The Loss of the Birkenhead. The collection not only includes letters to Alexander’s brother, David, and his mother, honouring his memory, but also letters from Alexander whilst sailing. One such letter of the 5th January 1852 is written to his mother: “The Birkenhead has not yet arrived...I hear good accounts of her in every way...I never felt leaving you so much before...” and letter of 29th January 1852 from Sierra Leone, Other fees apply in addition to the hammer price, please see the ‘Buyer’s Guide’ section on page 2

205 Jamaica – Gosse, Philip Henry Illustrations of the Birds of Jamaica. London: Jacob van Voorst, 1849. Large 8vo, plate volume only, 52 hand‑coloured lithographed plates, some heightened with gum arabic, 4pp. text including title, contemporary half morocco, light worming slightly affecting title and margin of 2nd leaf, light stain to some inner margins, lower margin of 7 plates strengthened on verso, one plate (Himantopus nigricollis) with loss to image Provenance: The Library of a Country House Note: A Rare Work by “the father of Jamaican Ornithology”. Gosse had been interested in natural history since childhood and by the age of 34 had already published popular scientific books and contributed scholarly papers to the Royal Society. In 1844 he travelled to Jamaica to collect exotic insects and other specimens on a commercial basis. Gosse spent 18 of the happiest months of his life in Jamaica, and collected insects assiduously, some 7,800 of them. But his real interests lay more in ornithology. This fascination led to the publication of three books: The Birds of Jamaica in 1847, its accompanying plate volume, Illustrations of the Birds of Jamaica in 1849, and A Naturalist’s Sojourn in Jamaica in 1851. His books were well received at the time but none were reprinted. Gosse was meticulous and painstaking in his observations, drawings and watercolours,

saying that he devoted himself to recording “the condition of living things, of things in a state of nature … their songs and cries; their actions, in ease and under the pressure of circumstances; their affections and passions, towards their young, towards each other, towards other animals, towards man; their various arts and devices, to protect their progeny, to procure food, to escape from their enemies, to defend themselves from attacks; their ingenious resources for concealment”, and so on. Gosse also succeeded in conveying in words the impression of bird calls and songs, a very hard thing to do, analysed their nests in minute detail and kept birds in

captivity whenever he had the chance, the better to observe them at close quarters. The Birds of Jamaica, with the illustrated plate volume, Illustrations of the Birds of Jamaica, is regarded as the ornithological classic of the English‑speaking Caribbean, and David Lack in Island Biology Illustrated by the Lands Birds of Jamaica notes that “it was far ahead of its time and remained one of the best bird books on any part of the world for at least half a century”, while Gosse himself has become known to posterity as “the Father of Jamaican ornithology.” The text volume is easy to procure at a nominal sum. £2,000‑3,000

207 Knip, Antoinette Pauline Jacqueline and Temminck, Coenraad Jacob Les Pigeons. Paris: Mme Knip & Bellizard, Dufour & Cie., Typographie de Firmin Didot, [1838‑43]. Second edition of volume 1, First edition of volume 2, large folio (533 x 348mm.), 2 volumes, [4], 135, 128, 30, [3]; [4], 114, [2]; half‑titles, 147 plates printed in colours and finished by hand after Knip, by César Macret , tissue guards, contemporary green quarter morocco, spines gilt, lightly rubbed, some plates with slight offsetting, discolouration or light spotting Provenance: Pencil note on rear endpaper “Complete, Bernard Quaritch Ltd, GHB”; The Library of a Country House Note: A tall complete copy of Knip’s masterpiece, with the very rare second volume published in 1838‑43, volume II “said to be probably the rarest item in the whole of ornithological literature” (Wood), containing “among the finest of all bird plates” (Fine Bird Books). This work contains 2 of the very rare plates “avant lettres” not referred to in the standard bibliographies. Publication of the work had commenced in parts in 1808 under the longer title Histoire naturelle générale des Pigeons but rivalry between the artist, Antoinette Knip (née Courcelles) and the author of the text, Coenraad Temminck, led Madame Knip at the publication of the 9th (of 15) parts to appropriate the work to herself, issuing the work under the

revised title Les Pigeons, par Madame Knip, née Pauline de Coucelles, with Temminck’s role relegated beneath to “Le text par C.J. Temminck”. However the copy she sent Temminck did not have the altered title so by the time the work came out and he saw the altered title it was too late. This publishing history explains the hiatus betwwen p. 13 of the Discours and the first leaf of text, describing plate 1, being numbered as [p.23]. Pauline Knip had powerful friends at court, being a close friend of Marie Louise, husband of Napoleon Bonaparte, and Temminck found it impossible to get justice, his only recourse being to republish the text in 3 octavo volumes in 1813‑1815. Antoinette Pauline Knip was an exceptional ornithological artist and in 1805 had provided the beautiful plates for Desmaret’s Histoire naturelle des tangaras, des manakins, et des todiers. One of the more famous prints in Les Pigeons is of the Mauritius blue pigeon, now extinct. A copy of this work, quite possibly Temminck’s own copy, with the text originally envisaged by Temminck, and with 5 original unsigned watercolours, most probably by Knip, and with additional hand‑colouring to the perches, was sold at Christie’s, 28 November 2001, lot 58, (£30,000).

Provenance: The Library of a Country House Note First editions, together 4 volumes, a very attractive set. René Primevere Lesson, French surgeon, naturalist, ornithologist and herpetologist, was born at Rochefort in 1794. During the Napolonic wars he served in the French navy and in 1822‑1825 served as pharmacist and botanist on Duperrey’s round‑the‑world voyage of La Coquille, in the course of which he collected natural history specimens with his fellow surgeon Prosper Garnot and officer Dumont d’Urville. During his visits to the Moluccas and New Guinea, Lesson became the first naturalist to see birds of paradise in the wild. On his return to France he spent seven years preparing the vertebrate zoological section of the official account of the expedition, Voyage autour du monde entrepris par ordre du Gouvernement sur la corvette La Coquille (1826 to 1839). During this time he also compiled the monographs on hummingbirds and birds of paradise offered for sale here, as well as describing many new species of amphibians and reptiles. The beautiful hand‑coloured engravings were made from paintings by Jean‑Gabriel Prêtre, Bénvalet, Bessa, Oudart and Mme. Lesson. £3,000‑4,000

209 Levaillant, François Histoire Naturelle d’une Partie d’Oiseaux Nouveaux et Rares de l’Amérique et des Indes. Paris: J.E. Gabriel Dufour & Amsterdam, 1801 [‑02]. First edition, Volume 1 (all published), large 4to (352 x258mm.), [4], 4, 152; half‑title, 49 fine plates printed in colour and finished by hand, contemporary red half morocco, spine gilt, uncut, short split at head and base of upper joint, short split at head of lower joint, a little light spotting to some plates Provenance: The Library of a Country House Note: First edition. Originally published in eight parts, Levaillant’s Histoire Naturelle d’une Partie d’Oiseaux Nouveaux et Rares de l’Amérique et des Indes was available in three states: folio, with both coloured and uncoloured plates; large quarto, as here, with coloured plates only; and quarto, with uncoloured plates only. The fine portraits are of birds from the Bucerotidae and the Cotingidae families that Levaillant did not include in his earlier work “Histoire naturelle des oiseaux d’Afrique” (1799‑1802). “These plates were printed by Langlois, who did almost all the colour‑printing for Levaillant .... French colour‑printing of this period ... has never been surpassed” (Fine Bird Books). François Levaillant (1753‑1824) was born in Paramaribo, the capital of Dutch Guiana, the son of the French consul.

He was sent by Jacob Temminck to South Africa where he collected and sent back over 2000 bird skins, which were studied by Jacob’s son, Coenraad Jacob Temminck, and housed in the collection of the Natural History Museum at Leiden. On his return to Paris Levaillant published two best‑selling accounts of his voyages in South Africa and the present work, followed by the Histoire naturelle des oiseaux d’Afrique (1796– 1808, 6 vols.) with drawings by Jacques Barraband, Histoire naturelle des oiseaux de paradis (1801–06), Histoire naturelle des cotingas et des todiers (1804) and Histoire naturelle des calaos (1804). Levaillant was opposed to the systematic nomenclature introduced by Carl Linnaeus and only gave French names to the species that he discovered. When the birds were later given binomial names by other naturalists, quite a few were named after him including Levaillant’s barbet (Trachyphonus vaillantii), Levaillant’s cisticola, Levaillant’s cuckoo, Levaillant’s parrot, Levaillant’s tchagra and Levaillant’s woodpecker (Picus vaillantii). “Levaillant was, until exceeded by Gould (and until now only by him), the producer of the most comprehensive series of works on exotic birds” (Fine Bird Books, p. 118).

216 Temminck, Coenraad Jacob and le Baron Guillaume Michel Jérome Meiffren Laugier de Chartrouse. Nouveau Recueil de Planches Coloriées d’Oiseaux, pour servir de suite et de complément aux planches enluminées de Buffon. Paris: F.G. Levrault, Strasbourg: Même Maison; Amsterdam: Legras Imbert et Comp. [1820]‑ 1838‑[1839]. First edition, 5 volumes, large 4to (353 x 260mm.), half‑titles, 597 (of 600) finely hand‑coloured engraved plates after Nicolas Hüet and Jean‑Gabriel Prêtre, & others, (2 double‑page, 3 folding), contemporary green half morocco, spines gilt, top edges gilt, some light spotting and some light offsetting, lightly rubbed Provenance:The Library of a Country House Note: ‘Un des livres les plus beaux et des plus importants que l’on ait sur l’ornithologie’ (Brunet), complete with Cuvier’s rare ‘Prospectus’. This fine treatise, with its remarkable coloured plates, was intended as a supplement to Buffon’s Histoire naturelle des oiseaux (1770‑1786). This is a particularly large example of the quarto issue of this massive work, originally published in 102 parts over almost two decades from August 1820 to January 1839. Temminck supplied most of the text, while the key contribution of Baron Laugier de Chartrouse lay in providing specimens for the plates from his collection. Published in both folio and quarto formats, uniform with Buffon’s work, the work is found with

the text and plates bound either in systematic order, like the present copy, following Buffon’s species and plates (as described in the ‘Table Méthodique’ at the beginning of volume 1), or in order of publication. Temminck, director of the Museum at Leiden, is regarded as one of the foremost ornithologists of his time. Jean‑Gabriel Prêtre (1768 – 1849) was a Swiss‑French natural history painter who illustrated birds, mammals and reptiles in a large number of books. He was an outstanding ornithological artist and worked first for Empress Josephine’s zoo, and then for the Natural History Museum in Paris. He drew the natural history specimens collected on a number of important French geographical and exploratory expeditions including Dumont d’Urville’s Voyage de l’Astrolabe, Freycinet’s Voyage autour du Monde, Laplace’s Voyage autour du monde and others. Early in his career Prêtre worked closely with Temminck who paid him the compliment of naming the red‑spectacled parrot after him (Phaethornis pretrei). A prolific artist, he also illustrated Palisot’s Flore d’Oware et de Benin, Tussac’s Flore des Antilles, the Dictionnaire des sciences naturelles published between 1816 and 1830, and the ornithological works of Lesson, Temminck and Vieillot. The plates are superbly hand‑coloured. Anker 503; Fine Bird Books, 1990, p. 147; Nissen IVB 932. £10,000‑15,000

223 Birds of Paradise – Sharpe, R. Bowdler Monograph of the Paradiseidae, or Birds of Paradise, and Ptilonorhynchidae, or Bower‑Birds. London: H. Sotheran, 1891‑98. First edition, folio, 8 parts in 2 volumes, folio ( 540 x 358mm.), 79 hand‑coloured lithographic plates heightened with gum arabic by W. Hart after Hart, J. Gould, and J.G. Keulemans, printed by Mintern Brothers, photographic and engraved illustrations, green panelled morocco gilt, spine gilt, g.e., occasional very slight spotting of the text, one or two plates very slightly spotted (2) Note: ”First and only edition of a splendid monograph.” (Wood), with magnificent plates in a handsome green morocco binding. Sharpe appealed for subscribers for a monograph on ‘the Avifauna of Paupasia’ in the preface to Gould’s Birds of New Guinea which he brought to completion in 1888, following Gould’s death in 1881.

Some of the plates are printed from the stones used in the Birds of New Guinea but, as Sharpe’s preface states, ‘a great number of the species are here figured for the first time’. Although Elliot had published his Birds of Paradise in 1873, many species were still undiscovered, and Bowdler Sharpe’s monograph, with double the number of plates, brought the tale of exploration of New Guinea up to the turn of the century, and omitted no more than two or three of the very latest finds. As such it is a much more valuable work than D.G. Elliot’s. BM(NH) IV, p. 1910; Fine Bird Books p. 142; Nissen IVB 865; Whittell p. 663; Wood p. 565; Zimmer pp. 581‑2 (erroneously calling for 72 text leaves in vols I and II, rather than 48 and 52 respectively).

birds are taken by fishermen in thick, foggy weather, and very often at midnight...” (24/10.1887), report stating “I have often had more trouble in the day time with ornithologists and naturalists to prevent them from taking eggs than ever I had with fishermen... this last breeding season, up to 16th June, I could safely say there would not be less than 50,000 eggs taken from the Islands”, extensive correspondence with members of the Farne Island Association, some relating to ornithology Morres, Rev. Arthur P. Amongst the Birds on the Farne Islands. Salisbury, [1896], 8vo, original wrappers dust‑soiled; c. 200‑300 items in all, some a little dusty, in a 19th century wooden chest Footnote: A large collection of material, manuscript and printed, relating to the Farne Islands, and the Farne Island Association, which was set up in 1880 by ornithologists and naturalists to protect the eggs and birds of the Farne Islands. The Farne Islands are first recorded in 651, when they became home to Saint Aidan, followed by Saint Cuthbert who died there in 687. Among other acts, Saint Cuthbert introduced special laws in 676 protecting the eider duck, and other seabirds nesting on the islands; these are thought to be the earliest bird protection laws anywhere in the world. St. Cuthbert befriended the nesting birds and eider ducks which to this day are still known locally as ‘St. Cuthbert’s chicks’. Following the dissolution of the monastic cell on the islands, the islands became the property of the Dean and Chapter of Durham Cathedral, who leased them to various tenants. In 1861 the islands were sold to Charles Thorp, who was at the time Archdeacon of Durham. In 1894 the Outer Farne Islands were bought by the industrialist William Armstrong, 1st Baron Armstrong, and in 1926 the Inner and Outer Farne Islands were purchased for The National Trust by public subscription. A total of 290 bird species have been recorded on the Farnes including, in the 1760s, an example of the now extinct great auk. The Farnes are home to more than 20 different bird species, including Puffins, Eider Ducks, Guillemots, Razorbills, and four species of Tern. The noise is deafening with up to 150,000 birds crammed onto the Islands at the height of the breeding season. Inner Farne is the largest of the Farne Islands and during the Summer it becomes home to many thousands of nesting seabirds.

Trapp after Schlegel, each in two states, uncoloured and with bright contemporary hand‑colouring, later half cloth, a little rubbed, gilt label, binding with internal split (2 plates loose), occasional slight spotting, very short marginal tear to lower margin of text leaves Note: Probably the finest Dutch large colour‑plate book on birds. “An account of the Touracos (fam. Musophagidae). The general text, in Dutch, contains a description of each species with distribution, synonymy and other notes. The synopsis contains Latin diagnoses of the species. The plates are excellent and suggest the work of Wolf” (Zimmer). ”The essential part of the work consists of the beautiful plates, executed in lithography coloured by hand from drawings by Schlegel, made from nature and as far as possible from life. The birds are figured in life‑size, which accounts for the large format” (Anker). These lively and colourful Sub‑Saharan birds were mostly drawn from those in the Royal Amsterdam Zoo.

publishing horticultural and botanical works. He published a number of beautifully illustrated works on plants cultivatd in British gardens and hothouses. The fine plates were mainly drawn by Edwin Dalton Smith (1800–1883), a botanical artist, who was attached to the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.

247 Switzerland, Botany – Candolle, Augustin Pyramus de Plantes Rares du Jardin de Genève. Geneva: Librairie de J. Barbezat & Comp., 1829. First edition, 4to, 4 parts in one volume, folio (360 x 273 mm.), [vi], 92, [i]; half‑title, 24 stipple‑engraved plates, all printed in colours and some finished by hand, after Heyland (21), Mlle. Car. Chuit (2) and Anspach (1) by Heyland (7), Millenet (11), Anspach (4), Bovet (1) and Bouvier (1), printed by Tattegrain, original printed boards (371 x 290mm.), uncut, rebacked with cloth, boards a little dust‑soiled and scuffed at foot, internally mostly very clean Note: FIRST EDITION, second “consolidated” issue, with the title dated 1829, otherwise identical to the first issue. This rare work was originally published in four fascicules between 1825 and 1826 or 1827. The present rare work was published a few years after the Swiss botanist Candolle settled in Geneva where he became director of the ‘Jardin Botanique’. Candolle’s main focus was botany but he also contributed to related fields such as phytogeography, agronomy, paleontology, medical botany, and economic botany. Candolle proposed a “natural” method of plant classification as opposed to the artificial Linnaean method, a classification system which he outlined first in his Théorie élémentaire de la botanique (Elementary Theory of Botany, 1813), the principle of which was taxa do not fall along a linear scale; they are discrete, not continuous. This work also introduced the concept of “taxonomy”. His theory of “Nature’s war” – of plant species fighting each other for space and existence – influenced Charles Darwin and was one of the considerations that influenced Darwin’s theory of natural selection. The present work describes a number of rare plants of Geneva’s famous botanical garden which was founded by Candolle himself in 1817. The remarkably fine stipple‑engravings are all beautifully printed in colour and some are finished by hand. Great Flower Books, p.53; Nissen BBI 327; Stafleu & Cowan TL2 1000. £2,000‑3,000

293 Cameron, Julia Margaret Little Margie [Thackeray] ‘Christ Kind’, c.1865, albumen print, 34 x 26cm, laid onto original mount and signed by Cameron, framed and glazed Note: “When Julia Margaret Cameron took up photography in 1864, she passionately embraced allegory as her preferred artistic impulse and arranged her sitters in poses taken from classical literature, the Bible, contemporary poetry, and recent history. She called these photographs her ‘fancy subjects’…” [Rosen, Jeff, Julia Margaret Cameron’s ‘Fancy Subjects’, 2016, p.1] Julia Margaret Cameron’s photograph of Little Margie, commonly known as ‘Christ Kind’, or Christ Child, is an example of Cameron’s attraction to allegory in her work. Here, Cameron has recreated the Germanic Christkind – the infant Jesus who delivers presents to children on Christmas Eve. Margie Thackeray, the adopted granddaughter of William Makepeace Thackeray (and his great‑niece), is pictured with her hair brushed out, almost to create a halo around her head, giving her an angelic appearance. Cameron’s use of strong light Other fees apply in addition to the hammer price, please see the ‘Buyer’s Guide’ section on page 2

catches the crown of the child’s head, which is contrasted with the dark behind, again to create the perception of holiness. Julia Margaret Cameron certainly regarded her photography as an artform, writing to Sir John Herschel (father of the sitter in lot 295): “My aspirations are to ennoble Photography and to secure for it the character and uses of High Art…” [Rosen, p.2, quoting from Ford “The Cameron Collection]. To this end, Cameron manipulated her photographs to some extent. Cox and Ford write: “If parts of an image were unsatisfactory to her, she engraved lines onto the negative, scratched and painted the collodion, and doctored the image as necessary to suit her expressive needs.” [Cox, Julian & Colin Ford. Julia Margaret Cameron: The Complete Photographs, 2003, p.50] Similarly, Cameron chose to create a slight blur in many of her photographs, by not tightening her lens to the same extent as many photographers of the day, and eschewing devices such as head restraints for her sitters [Cox & Ford, p.50]. This effect can again be observed in the diffusion of Margie Thackeray’s hair. £5,000‑7,000

A Symphony in Grey [6 Polwarth Grove, Edinburgh], c.1925, bromoil transfer, 24 x 29cm, signed, titled and priced at £2.27.0 to reverse of mount, framed and glazed Note: Alexander Hill was a Scottish amateur photographer and member of the Edinburgh Photographic Society. “A Symphony in Grey” was taken in the 1920s. Depicting a city street scene, it is a fine example of pictorialism – the late 19th century photographic movement which sought to emphasise the painterley aspects of photography. The grainy nature of the photograph immitates a slightly impressionistic style, helped by the bromoil transfer printing process. £300‑400

Ochiltree is a ‘Blue‑gown’, or ‘gaberlunzie’, a beggar with a slightly higher status in 19th century society than others. The character of Edie Ochiltree captured the imagination of the photographers. Their preferred model for Ochiltree was John Henning: a Scottish bust sculptor, who made images of well known personages, including Scott himself. [Bruce, David.

It is possible that Hill and Adamson became interested in photographing the Newhaven fishing community, on the North side of Edinburgh, through Dr. James Fairburn, a sitter photographed by Hill and Adamson for the project surrounding the well‑known ‘Disruption painting’. Fairburn was the minister of the Newhaven church, and is thought to have been highly concerned with his congregation’s welfare. Ford and Strong write: “Having soon raised the money to build a church…Fairburn tackled the problem of getting their boats fitted with proper decks and cabins; it is possible that Hill and Adamson’s calotypes of Newhaven were taken in connection with this highly successful campaign.” [Ford, Colin & Roy Strong.

If the Reserve is not mutually agreed between us and confirmed by you in writing before the sale, the Reserve will be fixed by us in our sole discretion on the basis of our reasonable opinion as to the probable level of bids for the lots. The reserve cannot be above the low estimate. We shall in no circumstances be liable if bids are not received at the level of the reserve. We shall however be entitled to sell the lots below the reserve. If we do so, we shall be obliged to account to you as if the Hammer Price was equal to the Reserve.

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.

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 preregistration 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

Lyon & Turnbull

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. (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. (h) Online Bidding: We will use reasonable efforts to carry out online bids and do not accept liability for equipment failure, inability to access the internet or software malfunctions related to execution of online bids/ live bidding. 4. 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 may be subject to additional premiums depending on the service provider selected (The-Saleroom at 3%, Invaluable at 5%). 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. (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. 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; (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


Conditions of Sale

change and are for guzvnce 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/importsexports/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.

(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

131

purchaser of record and be able to 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. DATA PROTECTION In connection with the management and operation of our business and the marketing and supply of Lyon & Turnbull’s services, or as required by law, we may ask the Buyer to provide personal information about themselves or obtain information about the Buyer from third parties (e.g. credit information). Lyon & Turnbull will not give out personal information except as may be required by law. If you would like further information on Lyon & Turnbull policies on personal data, or to make corrections to your information, please contact us on 0131 557 8844. 19.
