fourteen working days of the sale. After this period the buyer will be responsible for loss or damage.

Commission Bids

If instructed we will execute bids and advise intending purchasers. This service is free. Lots will always be bought as cheaply

as is allowed by other bids and such reserves as are on our books. Commissions, where placed by telephone, are accepted

only at the sender's risk and must be confirmed before the sale by letter.

Export Licences

A licence from the Department of Trade will be required before items of certain kinds may be exported from the United

Kingdom.

Customers are requested to pay in cash, by credir or debit card, or to have established a credit reference with us before the

sale, so that purchases may be removed. For purchases over £300 Overseas customers are asked to provide a banker's draft

drawn on a UK bank if they wish to clear books immediately after a sale.

Commission Rates

Vendors. The commission payable by the vendor on the hammer price is 12.5% for property in excess of £10,000 and 15%

below that amount. Special rates are negotiable on single items of the value of £15,000 and over. Our commission on

manuscripts, prints, drawings, atlases, maps, photographs, music, and Hebrew material is 15%.

Buyers. A buyers' premium is payable at the rate of 22% of the first £150,000 of the hammer price of each lot and 10%

thereafter.

VAT

Zero-rated items such as books, unframed maps and albums are not 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 17.5%. This will be invoiced at a rate inclusive of

premium and VAT. Seller's commission will also be invoiced at a VAT inclusive rate in the case of the sale of eligible items.

Lots which are daggered (†) in the catalogue are subject to VAT on the hammer price as well as the buyer’s premium. Lots

marked with an asterisk (*) have been imported from outside the EU to be sold at auction under temporary importation, and

therefore the buyer must pay the import VAT at a rate of 5% on both the hammer price and buyer’s premium.

We undertake valuations for Probate and Insurance, fees being agreed by prior arrangement. If items are subsequently

consigned for sale, the fees will be refunded.

Untravelled World.
