From the Collection and Library of Raymond and Adi Inskeep (Lots 310 – 473)

Raymond and Adi Inskeep Raymond Robert Inskeep was born in Brighton in 1926, the fourth of six children of Ernest and Vera Inskeep. He was evacuated to Hitchin in Herts at the start of World War Two, where he finished his schooling at 14, electing not to go on to grammar school due to the financial situation of his parents. Instead he worked for a gent’s outfitter and learnt carpentry, something which remained a hobby throughout his life. He was called up for National Service, and spent time in Egypt and Palestine where his interest in archaeology was sparked. After the war, he applied for and obtained a scholarship for mature students at St John’s College, Cambridge, to study Archaeology. Some excavation work for the Ministry of Works followed, and he made his first trip to Sub-Saharan Africa where he excavated at the painted rock shelter of Kiese 2, Tanganyika, establishing the surprisingly early date of the first art found there. Within a year he became keeper of the Rhodes-Livingstone Museum in Northern Rhodesia (Zambia), where he carried out important field studies and excavations of Iron Age sites, including Kalundu Mound. Following this he returned to Cambridge for two years as an assistant lecturer, then returned to Africa, to the department of archaeology at the University of Cape Town. It was here, in 1963, that he met Adi Redman, curator of the Johannesburg Geological museum, and they were married in 1965. Adi was born in 1931, and was 22 years old when appointed curator of the Geological museum in Johannesburg. During her time there she constructed many new and exciting exhibits and acquired much outstanding material for the museum. She also wrote a number of handbooks for the Johannesburg Public Library between 1956 and 1964, and contributed to a history of South African tribal dress, following the curation of a display of African beadwork. Adi was also translator and editor of the book ‘The Bergdoma’ by Heinrich Vedder. After many happy years in South Africa, and due to their increasing disenchantment with the politics of apartheid, the Inskeeps returned to Oxford in 1972, where Ray became assistant curator at the Pitts Rivers museum. He was also appointed a University lecturer in African archaeology, and taught numerous graduate and undergraduate students over the years, supervising several significant doctoral theses on African topics. He was also elected a fellow of Merton College. Ray Inskeep’s work on the Pitt Rivers collections was tireless, and the gallery he created at the Museum’s Banbury Road site containing archaeological and ethnographic displays was widely regarded as the best of its kind in Britain. Throughout this time, and well into his retirement, Ray continued to research and write, publishing ‘The Peopling of Southern Africa’ in 1978, and ‘Nelson Bay Cave, Cape Province: the Holocene Levels’ in 1987. During his retirement Ray found time for his many interests outside of archaeology, including woodworking, and collecting and binding books, with which he and Adi filled their home. Throughout their time in Oxford both Ray and Adi built an extraordinary collection of books, ethnographical art and pottery, much of which Mallams is delighted to be offering in this sale. Ray Inskeep died in August 2003, age 76, and Adi Inskeep continued to live at their Walton Street home until her death on the 5th April 2016.

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 seller and on our own 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 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). Any surplus so arising shall belong to the seller; (d) to remove, store and insure the Lot at your expense and, in the case of storage, either at our premises or elsewhere; (e) to charge interest at a rate not exceeding 1.5% per month on the total amount due to the extent it remains unpaid for more than 3 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 in future becoming due to you towards the settlement of the total amount due and to exercise a lien (that is a right to retain possession of) any of your property in our possession for any purpose until the debt due is satisfied. (2) We shall, as agent for the seller and on our own behalf pursue these rights and remedies only so far as is reasonable to make appropriate recovery in respect of breach of these conditions 9. 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 and security arrangements. Accordingly neither the auctioneer nor our employees or agents shall incur liability for death or personal injury (except as required by law by reason of our negligence) or similarly for the safety of the property of persons visiting prior to or at a sale.


10. COMMISSION AND TELEPHONE BIDS Whilst 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 will if so instructed clearly and in writing execute bids on their behalf or by telephone. Neither the auctioneer nor our employees or agents shall be responsible for any failure to do so save where such failure is unreasonable. 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. 11. WARRANTY OF TITLE AND AVAILABILITY The seller warrants to the auctioneer and you that the seller is the true owner of the property consigned or is properly authorised by the true owner to consign it for sale and is able to transfer good and marketable title to the property free from any third party claims. 12. AGENCY The auctioneer normally acts as agent only and disclaims any responsibility for default by sellers or buyers. 13. TERMS OF SALE The seller acknowledges that Lots are sold subject to the stipulations of these Conditions in their entirety and on the Terms of Consignment as notified to the consignor at the time of the entry of the Lot. 14. 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 accept liability for opinions given negligently or fraudulently. Subject to the foregoing neither we the auctioneer nor our employees or agents nor the seller accept liability for the correctness of such opinions and all conditions and warranties, whether relating to description, condition or quality of lots, express, implied or statutory, are hereby excluded. This Condition is subject to the next following Condition concerning deliberate forgeries and applies save as provided for in paragraph 6 “information to buyers”. (2) Private treaty sales made under these Conditions are deemed to be sales by auction for purposes of consumer legislation. 15. FORGERIES Notwithstanding the preceding Condition, any Lot which proves to be a deliberate forgery (as defined) may be returned to us by you within 21 days of the auction provided it is in the same condition as when bought, and is accompanied by particulars identifying it from the relevant catalogue description and a written statement of defects. If we are satisfied from the evidence presented that the Lot is a deliberate forgery we shall refund the money paid by you for the Lot including any buyer’s premium provided that (1) if the catalogue description reflected the accepted view of scholars and experts as at the date of sale or (2) you personally are not able to transfer a good and marketable title to us, you shall have no rights under this condition. The right of return provided by this Condition is additional to any right or remedy provided by law or by these Conditions of Sale. GENERAL 16. We shall have the right at our discretion, to refuse admission to our premises or attendance at our auctions by any person. 17 (1) any right to compensation for losses liabilities and expenses incurred in respect of and as a result of any breach of these Conditions and any exclusions provided by them shall be available to the seller and/or the auctioneer as appropriate. (2). Such rights and exclusions shall extend to and be deemed to be for the benefit of employees and agents of the seller and/or the auctioneer who may themselves enforce them. 18. Any notice to any buyer, seller, bidder or viewer may be given by first class mail or Swiftmail in which case it shall be deemed to have been received by the addressee 48 hours after posting. 19. Special terms may be used in catalogue descriptions of particular classes of items in which case the descriptions must be interpreted in accordance with any glossary appearing at the commencement of the catalogue. 20. Any indulgence extended to bidders buyers or sellers by us notwithstanding the strict terms of these Conditions or of the Terms of Consignment shall affect the position at the relevant time only and in respect of that particular concession only; in all other respects these Conditions shall be construed as having full force and effect. 21. English law applies to the interpretation of these Conditions. ENDANGERED SPECIES LAWS Due to international laws, any item on the Endangered species list (i.e. Ivory, Rhino horn etc.), whether it dates from the 18th/19th Century or the 1930s, requires re-export permits for bidders outside the EU (CITES). Some countries also require import permits as well and all permits must be in place prior to shipment. Mallams cannot be held liable if a purchaser buys a lot that comes within this field and then import/export licences cannot be arranged. Certain countries, particularly the USA, have their own Endangered Species Act (USESA) and possession or being involved in a commercial transaction with any item on this list can be an offence for a US resident. Therefore, it is the potential buyers responsibility to check Federal regulations before bidding for a lot, which comes under these or similar regulations. Please note no license is required to sell or advertise within the EU if items are pre-1947. ONLINE BIDDING Mallams Fine Art Auctioneers offer an online bidding service via for bidders who cannot attend the sale. In completing the bidder registration on and providing your credit card details and unless alternative arrangements are agreed with Mallams Fine Art Auctioneers, you: 1. authorise Mallams Fine Art auctioneers, if they so wish, to charge the credit card given in part or full payment, including all fees, for items successfully purchased in the auction via, and 2. confirm that you are authorised to provide these credit card details to Mallams Fine Art Auctioneers through and agree that Mallams Fine art Auctioneers are entitled to ship the goods to the card holder name and card holder address provided in fulfilment of the sale. Please note that any lots purchased via live auction service will be subject to an additional 3% commission charge + VAT at the rate imposed on the hammer price.
