Description and Condition of Lots

Prospective buyers must satisfy themselves concerning the condition of

the goods and the matters referred to in the catalogue description, in

accordance with section 6 of the Conditions of Sale and Business. Solely

as a convenience, Bloomsbury Auctions may provide condition reports.

Many items are of an age or nature which precludes their being in perfect

condition and some descriptions in the catalogue, or given by way of

condition report (made either orally or in writing), make reference to

damage and/or restoration. We provide this information for guidance

only and the absence of such a reference does not imply that an item is

free from defects or restoration, nor does a reference to particular defects

imply the absence of any others.

Collation of Books

text or illustration, the purchaser may reject the lot provided he returns

it within fourteen days stating the defect in writing. This however will

not apply in the case of un-named items, periodicals, autograph letters,

manuscripts, music, maps, atlases, prints or drawings, nor in respect of

damage to bindings, stains, foxing, marginal wormholes or other defects

not affecting the completeness of the text, nor in respect of lack of list

of plates, inserted advertisements, cancels or subsequently published

volumes, supplements, appendices or plates or error in the enumerating

of the plates, nor in respect of defects mentioned in the catalogue or

announced at the time of sale.

be levied on all purchases not cleared within five working days of the sale.

Artist’s Resale Rights (“Droit de Suite”)

Lots marked with an delta symbol (δ) are subject to theArtist’s

amount equal to the resale royalty and we will pay such amount to

the artist’s collecting agent. Resale royalty applies where the

Hammer price is 1,000 Euros or more and the amount cannot be

more than 12,500 Euros per lot.The amount is calculated as follows:

Royalty For the portion of the Hammer Price (in euros)

4.00% up to 50,000

3.00% between 50,000.01 and 200,000

1.00% between 200,000.01 and 350,000

0.50% between 350,000.01 and 500,000

0.25% in excess of 500,000

calculating the resale royalty the Pounds Sterling/ Euro rate of exchange

will be the European Central Bank reference rate on the day of the sale.

vAT v

subject to VAT on the buyer’s premium. Eligible items such as manuscripts,

prints, photographs, drawings, framed maps, paintings, pens and

other objects are subject to VAT on the buyer’s premium as part of the

auctioneers margin scheme at a rate of 20%. This will be invoiced at a rate

inclusive of premium and VAT. Lots with an asterisk (*) in the catalogue are

subject to VAT on the hammer price as well as the buyer’s premium. Lots

marked with a double asterisk (**) have been imported from outside the

EU to be sold at auction, and therefore the buyer must pay the import at

a rate of 5% on the hammer and 20% on the buyer’s premium.

The Hawkesworth family are said to be descended from one of

William the Conqueror’s commanders, killed at the battle of

Hastings, with the estate being gifted to his son. More certainly,

while they appear to have had a small estate at Hawksworth, at least

from the twelfth century, it was not until a Walter Hawkesworth

married into the Ward family did the Hawkesworths become the

paramount landowners in the area. An older house was known to

have existed on the site, but the present building was begun in the

early seventeenth century, the oldest part with a datestone of 1611.

During the Civil War, Sir Richard Hawkesworth, a firm ally of Sir

Thomas Fairfax was arrested at Hawksworth Hall and imprisoned

at York until the city surrendered in 1644. A little later in the same

century Sir Walter Hawkesworth, created a baronet in 1669, made

several alterations to the house, and there are further dates of 1664

and 1667 on the chimneys. Hawkesworth was briefly involved in

national affairs during the 1660s when in correspondence as deputy

lieutenant to George Villiers, second duke of Buckingham, who

was attempting to establish a power base in West Yorkshire. Apart

from his own extensive holdings in the county, Buckingham married

Mary, the daughter of General Sir Thomas Fairfax who had a house

in the village. Hawkesworth’s letter-book cum commonplace book

Lot 36

is included in this archive. Alterations continued to be made to the

house until the eighteenth century when in 1796 Frances Fawkes of

Farnley Hall, near Otley, died and left all of his property to Walter

Ramsden Beaumont Hawkesworth (art collector, 1769-1825), who

had married a near relation. He took the surname Fawkes and went

to live at Farnley Hall. The Hawkesworth family retained ownership

of the house but ceased to live in it after 1825 and for the remainder

of the century it was let to tenants. Later, it came into the possession

of the Gaunt family, who, in 1955 sold the estate at auction. Until

recently, the house was used as a school by the charity SCOPE,

treating children for cerebral palsy. The school was closed in 1998

and in 2000 was sold. In addition to the longevity of the Hawkesworth

family themselves there are at least two families with a remarkable

continuance in one place, notably the Roodes or Rhodes family

(perhaps several families all taking the same surname, there is an

area of the village known as High Royds today) and the Vavasours,

both of yeoman stock and both mentioned in early medieval charters

and stll mentioned in accounts until well into the eighteenth century.

Menston is a village near the towns of Guiseley and Otley in Lower

Wharfdale, West Yorkshire. Recorded in the Domesday Book in 1086,

Menston is described as being in the Wapentake of Skyrack, being

part of the manor of Otley. During the medieval period ownership

of much of the village came under the control of the Hawkesworth

family through marriage with the Ward family. This is reflected in the

large quantity of deeds from this period, relating to every aspect of

legal ownership of property in an agricultural economy. Thereafter

the Hawkesworth’s hegemony over the area started to wane, though

they retained a presence until the late nineteenth century. Menston

remained a largely agricultural community until the eighteenth

century when, in common with much of West Yorkshire, the process

of industialisation through the operation of the mills began. Despite

this, Menston remained a small community until the nineteenth

century when a flax mill and two woollen mills were established

to the west of the village and numbers correspondingly rose. One

of these mills later became a linen bleaching mill. In 1865 work

began on the railway and in 1887 the Fawkes family sold land, upon

which the local hospital was built. The twentieth century, of course,

as in every other part of England has seen a continuous rise in the

population and concomitant house building.

In 1657 “Buckingham returned to England and paid suit to Mary

Fairfax (1638-1704), daughter and sole heir of Thomas, Lord Fairfax,

the parliamentarian general. Mary, smitten with the duke, broke off

her engagement to the earl of Chesterfield, and Buckingham and

Mary were married on 15 September at Bolton Percy in Yorkshire.

As Fairfax had been granted the major portion of the duke’s

confiscated estates, the marriage was a blatantly opportunist move

to secure his inheritance.” (Oxford DNB). As Fairfax had a house

at Menston, Sir Richard and his son Walter Hawkesworth could

be counted as near neighbours and Sir Richard was arrested and

sent to prison in York over his support for parliament during the

Civil War. On 30 October 1661 Buckingham was appointed lord

lieutenant of the West Riding. “The West Riding lieutenancy had

attached to it more deputies than any other county, and therefore

promised Buckingham extensive local patronage. Within months he

had created a loyal clientele of youngish, politically inexperienced

deputies, among whom was Sir Thomas Osborne (later earl of

Danby) and George Savile (later marquess of Halifax) were to

advance furthest. The duke’s first chance to advertise his abilities,

and to expunge the republican taint that his return to England in

1657 had created, occurred in autumn 1663, when news reached

London of a major republican conspiracy in Yorkshire. The duke

journeyed to York, and requested a commission to raise a horse

regiment. This was unduly alarmist, since government spies had

already infiltrated the claques, but three rabble-like gatherings

of dissidents did take place on 12 October, and this appeared to

vindicate his caution. He was instructed to oversee the prosecution

of the ringleaders, and some twenty men were hanged in Yorkshire

early the following year.” - Oxford DNB.

The Neville family had been instrumental in helping Edward IV

seize the thrown from Henry VI and had in consequence become

one of the most influential families in the land. However, after

Edward IVs marriage to Elizabeth Woodville in the 1460’s he

began to favour her family and tensions began to rise between the

king and the Neville’s. By 1469, relations between the Neville

family under the leadership of Richard earl of Warwick, “the

Kingmaker” and Edward IV had broken down and developed into

armed conflict. Edward IV was defeated at the battle of Edgcote

and the king himself was arrested by Archbishop Neville. By 1471

Edward IV had recovered his throne and now Archbishop Neville,

although formally pardoned was in disgrace but could not be

removed from his archiepiscopacy. th u s ge o r g e ne v i l l e w a s f o r a

selected aid posts, collecting posts, & an advanced dressing post.

The car stopped & refused to move on the top of an enclosed hill

where it was dangerous for motors. We had to shove & pull all we

knew & eventually got her near to a dug out where the chaffeur

spent the night with some French soldiers. The wood beside the car

was shelled badly during the night but the car was not touched. We

had to walk across one valley for æ of a mile - it was studded with

graves and as we crossed it a shell burst over our heads emitting

a filthy smell which was irritating to our nostrils. Personally

I was quite relieved when we reached Rainecourt... got a motor

ambulance to to carry us back to H.Q.”

*** Both works are rare. Caillet calls the Fasciculus Geomanticus

the ‘ouvrage fondamental de Géomancie’. Geomancy was

historically a form of predicting the future or uncovering facts

hidden to the inquirer using a number of dots randomly jotted down

by the geomancer. Fludd attempted to take this idea a litle further

and to use its application to unlock the unconscious part of the

mind. Consequently, the work is of interest to historians of early

psychology.

occasional ms. note only) and Sotheby’s, France, 21st November,

2008, lot 12).

François de Malherbe (1555-1628) French poet, critic, and

translator. His early career was largely unsuccessful and it was

not until 1600 when he presented an ode of welcome to Marie de’

Medici that he made his mark. However, it took another five years

for him to summoned to the court of Henri IV, where he lived for

the next 20 years. The personal motto he adopted during that time

comes from verse 4 of Psalm 37, “Delight yourself in the Lord, and

he will give you the desires of your heart”. According to Hector

Lefuel in his article François Malherbe (1555-1628) bibliophile,

1925, this is often inscribed on the title pages of books presented

by Malherbe to his son, Marc-Antoine, who was tragically killed in

a duel. The further inscription which includes ‘St.Aignan’ discloses

Malherbe’s pride in his ancestry, with records dating back to 1214

to a Jean de Malherbe, seigneur de St. Aignan.

With regard to the binding it is interesting to note that Lefuel

mentions a binding on another book from the poet’s library which

too has the same centre-pieces of olive wreaths.

Perhaps most importantly he was among the first to attempt to free

the natural sciences from the stifling influence of the authority of

textbooks, for which he substituted, as far as possible, direct study

Emmy (or Emmie) Oprecht (1899-1990) was the wife of Zurich

bookseller and publisher Emil Oprecht (1895-1952) whose

premises were a meeting place for exiled anti-fascist German and

Italian writers during the war. Emmy took over the business after

Emil’s death in 1952. Both were among Mann’s closest friends in

Zurich.

Mann had emigrated to US in 1939, moving to Pacific Palisades

near Los Angeles, in 1942. He returned to Zurich in 1952.

*** “In London in 1849 Palgrave had... been introduced to

Tennyson, who had not yet achieved the fame that In Memoriam

(1850) would bring. His time as Tennyson’s disciple was one of the

highlights of his life, but Tennyson’s need for admiring followers

was eventually overcome by his dislike of being harried by the

devoted Palgrave. On a walking tour of Cornwall in 1860, for

example, while hunting for Arthurian sites for the Idylls of the

King, Tennyson complained to William Holman Hunt that: ‘all day

long I am trying to get a quiet moment for reflection... but before

I have finished a couplet I hear Palgrave’s voice like a bee in a

bottle, making the neighbourhood resound with my name, and I

have to give myself up to escape the consequences.’ (Hunt, 2.213).

It was, therefore, little wonder that Tennyson ‘dismissed’ Palgrave

in 1868, though Palgrave continued to regard himself as a lifelong

friend.” - Oxford DNB.

*** A satire on the fashionable lectures at the Royal Institution.

The lecturer, probably Thomas Young, Professor of Natural

Philosophy at the Institute from July 1801, delivered thirty lectures

between January and May 1802, and is shown experimenting on

Sir J. C. Hippisley (left). Next to Young stands Humphry Davy,

the assistant lecturer to the Institute from July 1801. Much realism

appears to be mingled with Gillray’s satire. In 1801 Davy gave

lectures on ‘pneumatical chemistry’ and had administered nitrous

oxide (laughing gas) to several gentlemen. (M.Dorothy George,

*** “This is what I call a perfect print. The tone is sufficient and

not too even. The lines have their full value and have slight tone

or aureal round them, which will go on improving with age. It is

of course greatly helped by the type of paper used, the ink, and

the slight ‘burr’ left on the lines...This plate was printed cold, ragwiped

but not retroussé, and went once through the press...” John

Buckland Wright quoted in Pertelote.

CONDITIONS OF SALE AND BUSINESS

These Conditions of Sale and Business constitute the contract

between Bloomsbury Auctions (the “Auctioneer”) and the

seller, on the one hand, and the buyer on the other. By bidding

at the auction, you agree to be bound by these terms.

inFORMATiOn FOR BUYeRS

1. introduction.

The following informative notes are intended to assist Buyers,

particularly those inexperienced or new to our salerooms. All sales

are conducted on our printed Conditions of Sale which are readily

available for inspection and normally accompany catalogues. Our

staff will be happy to help you if there is anything you do not fully

understand.

2. Agency.

As auctioneers we usually contract as agents for the seller whose

identity, for reasons of confidentiality, is not normally disclosed.

Accordingly if you buy your primary contract is with the seller.

3. estimates.

Estimates are designed to help buyers gauge what sort of sum

might be involved for the purchase of a particular lot. The lower

estimate may represent the reserve price and certainly will not

be below it. Estimates do not include the Buyer’s Premium or VAT

(where chargeable). Estimates are prepared some time before the

sale and may be altered by announcement before the sale. They are

in no sense definitive.

4. Buyer’s Premium.

The Buyer agrees to pay a buyer’s premiumon the hammer price of

each lot purchased. The buyer’s premium is 22% (26.4% including

VAT) of the hammer price on each lot up to and including

£300,000 plus 12% (14.4% including VAT) for any amount in excess

of £300,000.

5. vAT. (*)

indicates that VAT is payable by the purchaser at the standard rate

(presently 20%) on the hammer price as well as being an element in

the buyer’s premium. This imposition of VAT is likely to be because

the seller is registered for VAT within the European Union and is not

operating the Dealers Margin Scheme or because VAT is due at 20%

on importation into the UK. The double symbol (**) indicates that

the lot has been imported from outside the European Union and

the present position is that these lots are liable to a reduced rate of

VAT (5%) on the gross lot price (i.e. both the hammer price and the

buyer’s premium). Lots which appear without either of the above

symbols indicate that no VAT is payable on the hammer price. This

is because such lots are sold using the Auctioneers’ Margin Scheme

and it should be noted that the VAT included within the Premium is

not recoverable as input tax.

6. Descriptions and Conditions.

Condition reports are provided on our web site or upon request.

The absence of a report does not imply that a lot is without

imperfections. The detail in a report will reflect the estimated

value of the lot, and large numbers of such requests received

shortly before the sale may not receive a response to all lots.

Members of staff are not trained restorers or conservators and,

particularly for higher value lots, you should obtain an opinion

from such a professional. We recommend that you always view

a lot in person.

We are, primarily, agents for the seller. We are dependent on

information provided by the seller and whilst we may inspect lots

and act reasonably in taking a general view about them we are

normally unable to carry out a detailed or any examination of lots

in order to ascertain their condition in the way in which it would be

wise for a buyer to do. Intending buyers have ample opportunity

for inspection of goods and, therefore, accept responsibility for

inspecting and investigating lots in which they may be interested.

Please note carefully the exclusion of liability for the condition of

lots contained in the Conditions of Sale. Neither the seller nor we,

as the auctioneers, accept any responsibility for their condition. In

particular, mechanical objects of any age are not guaranteed to be

in working order. However, in so far as we have examined the goods

and make a representation about their condition, we shall be liable

for any defect which that examination ought to have revealed to

the auctioneer but which would not have been revealed to the

buyer had the buyer examined the goods. Additionally, in specified

circumstances lots misdescribed because they are ‘deliberate

forgeries’ may be returned and repayment made. There is a 3 week

time limit. (The expression ‘deliberate forgery’ is defined in our

Conditions of Sale).

7. electrical goods.

These are sold as ‘antiques’ only and if bought for use must be

checked over for compliance with safety regulations by a qualified

electrician first.

8. 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 because, e.g.

they may contain prohibited materials such as ivory. Ask us if you

need help.

9. Bidding.

Bidders may be required to register before the sale commences and

lots will be invoiced to the name and address on the registration

form. Some form of identification may be required if you are

unknown to us. Please enquire in advance about our arrangements

for telephone bidding.

10. Commission bidding.

Commission bids may be left with the auctioneers indicating the

maximum amount to be bid excluding buyers’ premium. They will be

executed as cheaply as possible having regard to the reserve (if any)

and competing bids. If two buyers submit identical commission bids

the auctioneers may prefer the first bid received. Please enquire in

advance about our arrangements for the leaving of commission bids

by telephone or FAX.


11. Methods of Payment.

Any cheques tendered will need to be cleared before removal of

the goods is permitted. The following methods of payment are

acceptable:

Sterling cheque to be drawn on a UK bank and made payable

to ‘Bloomsbury Auctions’. It will be necessary to allow at least

five working days for the cheque to clear before collecting your

purchases.

Bank transfer. All transfers must state the relevant sale number,

lot number and your bid / paddle number. If transferring from a

foreign currency, the amount we receive must be the total due in

pounds sterling (after currency conversion and the deduction of

any bank charges). Our bank details can be found on the reverse

of your invoice or in the sale catalogue under ‘Important Notices’

Debit cards drawn on a UK bank. There is no additional charge for

purchases made with these cards. Debit cards drawn on an overseas

bank or deferred debit cards will be subject to a 3% surcharge.

Sterling cash payments of up to £8,000 and debit cards payments

can be made at the Cashier’s Office, either during or after the sale.

12. Collection and storage.

Please note what the Conditions of Sale state about collection

and storage. It is important that goods are paid for and

collected promptly. Any delay may involve the buyer in paying

storage charges.

13. Droit de suite royalty charges.

From 14th February 2006 all UK art market professionals (which

includes, but is not limited to; auctioneers, dealers, galleries, agents

and other intermediaries) are required to collect a royalty payment

for all works of art that have been produced by living artists. This

payment is only calculated on qualifying works of art which are

sold for a hammer price more than the UK sterling equivalent of

EURO 1,000 – the UK sterling equivalent will fluctuate in line with

prevailing exchange rates.

It is entirely the responsibility of the buyer to acquaint himself with

the precise EURO to UK Sterling exchange rate on the day of the

sale in this regard, and the auctioneer accepts no responsibility

whatsoever if the qualifying rate is different to the rate indicated.

All items in this catalogue that are marked with δ are potentially

qualifying items, and the royalty charge will be applied if the

hammer price achieved is more than the UK sterling equivalent of

EURO 1,000.The royalty charge will be added to all relevant buyers’

invoices, and must be paid before items can be cleared. All royalty

charges are passed on to the Design and Artists Copyright Society

(‘DACS’), no handling costs or additional fees with respect to these

charges will be retained by the auctioneers.

The royalty charge that will be applied to qualifying items which

achieve a hammer price of more than the UK sterling equivalent of

EURO 1,000, but less than the UK sterling equivalent of EURO 50,000

is 4%. For qualifying items that sell for more than the UK sterling

equivalent of EURO 50,000 a sliding scale of royalty charges will apply

– for a complete list of the royalty charges and threshold levels, please

see www.dacs.org.uk. There is no VAT payable on this royalty charge.

TeRMS OF COnSiGnMenT FOR SeLLeRS

1. interpretation.

In these Terms the words ‘you’, ‘yours’, etc. refer to the Seller and if the

consignment of goods to us is made by an agent we assume that

the Seller has authorised the consignment and that the consignor

has the Seller’s authority to contract. Similarly the words ‘we’, ‘us’, etc.

refer to the Auctioneers.

2. Commission

Commission is charged to sellers at the following rates:- please

enquire at our salerooms.

3. Removal costs.

Items for sale must be consigned to the sale room by any stated

deadline and at your expense. We may be able to assist you with

this process but any liability incurred to a carrier for haulage charges

is solely your responsibility.

4. Loss and damage of goods.

(a) Bloomsbury Auctions is not authorised by the FSA to provide

insurance to it’s clients, and does not do so. However Bloomsbury

Auctions for it’s own protection, assumes liability for property

consigned to it at the lower pre-sale estimate until the hammer falls.

To justify accepting liablilty, Bloomsbury Auctions makes a charge of

1.5% of the hammer price plus VAT, subject to a minmum charge of

£1.50, or if unsold 1.5% of our lower estimate. The liability assumed by

Bloomsbury Auctions shall be limited to the lower pre-sale estimate

or the hammer price if the lot is sold.

(b) If the owner of the goods consigned instructs us in writng not to take

such action, the goods then remain entirely at the owners risk unless and

until the property in them passes to the Buyer or they are collected by or

on behalf of the owner, and clause 4 (a) is inapplicable le

5. illustrations.

The cost of any illustrations is borne by you. If we consider that the

Lot should be illustrated your permission will be asked first. The

copyright in respect of such illustrations shall be the property of us,

the auctioneers, as is the text of the catalogue.

6. Minimum bids and our discretion.

goods will normally be offered subject to a reserve agreed between

us before the sale in accordance with clause 7. We may sell Lots

below the reserve provided we account to you for the same sale

proceeds as you would have received had the reserve been the

hammer price. If you specifically give us a “discretion” we may accept

a bid of up to 10% below the formal reserve.

7. Reserves.

(a) You are entitled to place prior to the auction a reserve on any lot

consigned, being the minimum hammer price at which that lot may

be sold. Reserves must be reasonable and we may decline to offer

goods which in our opinion would be subject to an unreasonably

high reserve (in which case goods carry the storage and insurance

charges stipulated in these Terms of Consignment).

(b) A reserve once set cannot be changed except with our consent.

(c) Where a reserve has been placed only we may bid on your behalf

and only up to the reserve (if any) and you may in no circumstances

bid personally.


8. electrical items.

These are subject to detailed statutory safety controls. Where such

items are accepted for sale you accept responsibility for the cost of

testing by external contractors. goods not certified as safe by an

electrician (unless antiques) will not be accepted for sale. They must

be removed at your expense on your being notified. We reserve the

right to dispose of unsafe goods as refuse, at your expense.

9. Soft furnishings.

The sale of soft furnishings is strictly regulated by statute law in the

interests of fire safety. goods found to infringe safety regulations will

not be offered and must be removed at your expense. We reserve

the right to dispose of unsafe goods as refuse, at your expense.

The rights of disposal referred to in clause 8 and 9 are subject to the

provisions of The Torts (Interference with goods) Act 1977, Schedule

1, a copy of which is available for inspection on request

10. Descriptions.

Please assist us with accurate information as to the provenance

etc. of goods where this is relevant. There is strict liability for the

accuracy of descriptions under modern consumer legislation and

in some circumstances responsibility lies with sellers if inaccuracies

occur. We will assume that you have approved the catalogue

description of your lots unless informed to the contrary. Where

we are obliged to return the price to the buyer when the lot is a

deliberate forgery under Condition 15 of the Conditions of Sale and

we have accounted to you for the proceeds of sale you agree to

reimburse us the sale proceeds.

11. Unsold and withdrawn items.

If an item is unsold it may with your consent be re-offered at

a future sale. Where in our opinion an item is unsaleable you

must collect such items from the saleroom promptly on being

so informed. Otherwise, storage charges may be incurred. We

reserve the right to charge for storage in these circumstances at a

reasonable daily rate.

12. Withdrawn and bought in items.

These are liable to incur a charge of 15 % plus VAT on being bought

in or withdrawn after being catalogued.

13. Conditions of Sale.

You agree that all goods will be sold on our Conditions of Sale. In

particular you undertake that you have the right to sell the goods

either as owner or agent for the owner. You undertake to compensate

us and any buyer or third party for all losses liabilities and expenses

incurred in respect of and as a result of any breach of this undertaking.

We will also, at our discretion, and as far as practicable, confirm that

an item consigned for sale does not appear on the Art Loss register,

which is administered by an independent third party.

14. Authority to deduct commission and expenses and retain

premium and interest.

(a) You authorise us to deduct commission at the stated rate and

all expenses incurred for your account from the hammer price and

consent to our right to retain beneficially the premium paid by the

buyer in accordance with our Conditions of Sale and any interest

earned on the sale proceeds until the date of settlement.

(b) You authorise us in our discretion to negotiate a sale by private

treaty not later than the close of business 48 hours after the day of

sale in the case of lots unsold at 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 Terms apply

15. Warehousing.

We disclaim all liability for goods delivered to our saleroom

without sufficient sale instructions and reserve the right to make

minimum warehousing charge of £10 per lot per day. Unsold lots

are subject to the same charges if you do not remove them within

a reasonable time of notification. If not removed within three

weeks we reserve the right to sell them and defray charges from

any net proceeds of sale or at your expense to consign them to

the local authority for disposal.

16. Settlement.

After sale settlement of the net sum due to you normally takes

place within 28 days of the sale (by crossed cheque to the seller)

unless the buyer has not paid for the goods. In this case no

settlement will then be made but we will take your instructions in

the light of our Conditions of Sale. You authorise any sums owed

by you to us on other transactions to be deducted from the sale

proceeds. You must note the liability to reimburse the proceeds

of sale to us as under the circumstances provided for in Condition

10 above. You should therefore bear this potential liability in mind

before parting with the proceeds of sale until the expiry of 28 days

from the date of sale.

of deceiving as to authorship, origin, date, age, period, culture or

source but which is unequivocally described in the catalogue as

being the work of a particular creator and which at the date of the

sale had a value materially less than it would have had if it had been

in accordance with the description;

(c) “hammer price” means the level of bidding reached (at or above

any reserve) when the auctioneer brings down the hammer;

these Conditions;

Value Added Tax chargeable and any other amounts due to us by

the seller in whatever capacity and however arising;

(h) The singular includes the plural and vice versa as appropriate.


2. Bidding procedures and the Buyer.

(a) Bidders are required to register their particulars before bidding

and to satisfy any security arrangements before entering the auction

room to view or bid;

(b) the maker of the highest bid accepted by the auctioneer

conducting the sale shall be the buyer at the hammer price and

any dispute about a bid shall be settled at the auctioneer’s absolute

discretion by reoffering the Lot during the course of the auction

or otherwise. The auctioneer shall act reasonably in exercising this

discretion.

(c) Bidders shall be deemed to act as principals.

(d) Our right to bid on behalf of the seller is expressly reserved up

to the amount of any reserve and the right to refuse any bid is also

reserved.

liable for any royalties payable under Droit de Suite as setout under

Information for Buyers above.

5. value Added Tax.

Value Added Tax on the hammer price is imposed by law on all

items affixed with an asterisk or double asterisk. 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. (Please refer to

“Information for Buyers” for a brief explanation of the VAT position).

6. Payment.

(1) Immediately a Lot is sold you will:

(a) give to us, if requested, proof of identity, and

(b) pay to us the total amount due or in such other way as is agreed

by us.

(2) Any payments by you to us may be applied by us towards any

sums owing from you to us on any account whatever without

regard to any directions of you or your agent, whether express or

implied.

(3) Buyers who utilise the services of ATg Live Auctions or any

other live internet services are hereby informed that the payment

method details that are provided to ATg Live Auctions or any other

live internet services as part of the process of registration will, in the

absence of compliance with paragraph (1) of this clause, be utilised

by us to settle any amounts owing by such buyers to us.

7. 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 3 working days

following the day of the auction or upon the clearance of any

cheque used for payment after which you shall be responsible for

any removal, storage and insurance charges.

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

(4) Bloomsbury Auctions can accommodate packing and shipping

for certain items. For lots they are unable to provide this service for,

successful buyers must make these arrangements independently,

though the saleroom may be able to suggest specialist

shipping companies who can advise buyers, this advice is not a

recommendation and the saleroom is not liable for any aspect of

the packaging and shipping process. Please note that the cost of

packaging and shipping depends on the size/weight of the item(s)

purchased, insurance requirements, and the shipping destination,

not on the value of the item(s) purchased. Please note that any items

not collected within one week of the sale date may be automatically

removed to commercial storage and subject to a storage charge.

8. 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 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. 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 bereturned 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, email 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.
