Introduction – Highlights of the auction

This catalogue presents important books and manuscripts from a variety of private

properties in a wide range of fields: cartography, natural science, architecture, travel,

art, fiction and philosophy.

Special attention should be brought to a fine

selection of works within the field of natural

science. Important works by notable scientists

from Isaak Newton to Niels Bohr are presented.

Furthermore we present several influential

first editions by some of the most important

authors of the French Enlightenment. The most

notable being the first edition of Rousseau’s

“Émile”, which had great impact on the philosophy

of the upbringing of children. The copy

here presented is furthermore mounted with

an autograph receipt signed by Rousseau.

The auction opens with a series of fine

cartographical works from the library of

The Royal Danish Geographical Society in

Copenhagen. The collection of atlases and

maps includes 10 volumes of the first edition

of Johannes Blaeu’s celebrated cartographic

masterpiece the “Atlas Maior”,

published in Amsterdam in 1662.

Among the many letters and manuscripts

we have given special attention to two

unique and exceptionally large collections

of photographs, autograph letters

and manuscripts written by the modernist

author Herman Bang, who was

one of Denmark’s most internationally

established authors of his time. With his

impressionistic style he revolutionized the

novelistic writing of the 1880s. His impact

on literary history, was widely recognized

by influential modernist artists abroad like

Claude Monet and Maxim Gorki.


The autograph letters of the two Herman Bang collections

give new and intriguing knowledge about Bang’s

many travels, personal life and troublesome mind.

Among the autograph material are also a number

of unpublished manuscripts which reveal hitherto

unknown insight into the literary working process of

Herman Bang. Especially the early manuscript leaves

from Bang’s most acclaimed novel “Stuk” are important

and of great literary interest as are the manuscript for

Bang’s article on his relationship with the world famous

Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen.

The auction closes with one of the largest and

most well preserved collections of early, originally

printed scraps from the 19th century to be offered

for sale in Denmark in many years – the Jan

Hansen Scrap Collection. The collection of scraps

has been established during a life time and gives

a unique insight into the pictorial world of the

19th century. Several parts of the scrap collection

originates from other notable scrap collections,

e.g. The Lego Toy Collection.

The auction features several fine engraved

works. The most notable being the Danish

masterpiece “Flora Danica” which is the most

extensive illustrated work in the Danish history

of printing with 3240 handcoloured engravings

of Danish plants and flowers. Also worth

noting are the fascinating travel accounts of

Kircher “China Monumentis”, Olearius “Moscowitische

Reisebeschreibung” and Niehbuhr

“Beschreibung von Arabien”, all richly illustrated

with engravings.

We hope you will take an interest in the many varied features in this catalogue and

visit us at the auction either in Bredgade or online.

The Royal Danish

Geographical Society

4000­4018

The following 19 lots all derive from the library

“The Royal Danish Geographical Society” in

Copenhagen. The collection of atlases and

maps includes 10 volumes of the first edition

of Johannes Blaeu’s celebrated cartographic

masterpiece the “Atlas Maior”, published in Amsterdam

in 1662 with different volumes devoted

to specific parts of the world. Due to the high

standard and quality of engravings, ornaments,

typo graphy and paper “Atlas Maior” was the

most expensive book published during the 17th

century. For at long period the atlas was a status

symbol and the traditional state gift presented

by the Dutch government. The “Atlas Maior” is

known as the finest and most comprehensive

Baroque atlas, and the Latin edition remains

to this day one of history’s finest examples of

mapmaking.

Gerardus Mercator (1512­1594) was a Flemish

cartographer. He is remembered for the Mercator

projection world map named after him. Jodocus

Hondius (1563­1612), sometimes called Jodocus

Hondius the Elder to distinguish him from his son,

was a Flemish artist, engraver, and cartographer. He is

best known for his early maps and for re­establishing

the reputation of the work of Gerard Mercator. He

helped establish Amsterdam as the center of cartography

in Europe in the 17th century. After Hondius'

death in 1612, his publishing work in Amsterdam was

continued by his widow and two sons, Jodocus II and

Henricus.

Newton's law of gravity

Isaac Newton: Philosophiæ naturalis principia

mathematica. Amsterdam: Sumptibus societatis

1714. First Amsterdam reprint of the second edition

published in 1713. Illustrated with engraved

title vignette, woodcuts in the text and one engraved

folding plate on page 465. With contemporary

autograph name on title and contemporary

autograph notes on flyleaf. Inner hinges worn.

Inner paste downs worn. Bound in contemporary

Isaac Newton's (1643­1727) work "Principia Mathematica"

is considered "the greatest work in the

history of science. Copernicus, Galileo and Kepler had

certainly shown the way; but where they described

the phenomena they observed, Newton explained the

underlying universal laws. The "Principia" provided

the great synthesis of the cosmos, proving finally its

physical unity. Newton showed that the important

and dramatic aspects of nature that were subject to

the universal law of graviation could be explained,

in the mathematical terms, within a single physical

theory. [...] The same laws of gravitation and motion

ruled everywhere; [...] It was this grand conception

28

4019

4019

that produced a general revolution in human thought,

equalled perhaps only by that following Darwin's

"Origin of the Species" [...] The second edition of

"Principia" was not published until 1713" ("Printing

and the Mind of Man" # 161).

The second edition of Principia, here presented in a

rare first Amsterdam reprint from 1714, was revised

by Isaac Newton himself in order to improve its argu

ments. This was necessary partly because more

than 20 years had passed since the first edition was

pulished and new research had appeared e.g. new

comets had been found. Also the German mathematician

and polyhistor Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz

(1646­1716) had published theories that were close

to Newton's own, which forced him to sharpen his arguments

and therefore this edition was also provided

with a long anti­Leibnizian preface by Newton's

editor Roger Cotes.

Newton's "Opuscula Mathematica [...]" covers

many different treatises by Isaac Newton, from his

mathematical works and optical lectures, which

were greatly influential and laid the basis for modern

science, to his philological essays on history and

theology. Thus the work presents several of his most

influential texts.

The three volumes of "Opuscula Mathematica" are

part of a hybrid set of in all 8 volumes of the first

collected works of Isaac Newton. The hybrid set was

published between 1739­1761 and also consists

of "Geneva Principia" , 3 vols. (1739­42), "Opticks"

(1740) and "Arithmatica Universalis" (1761), but the

In the 1890s the Russian physiologist and physician

Ivan Petrovich Pavlov (1849­1936) was investigating

the gastric function of dogs by externalizing

a salivary gland so he could collect, measure, and

analyze the saliva and what response it had to food

under different conditions. He noticed that the dogs

tended to salivate before food was actually delivered

to their mouths, and set out to investigate this "psychic

secretion", as he called it. He was awarded the

Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1904 for his

research pertaining to the digestive system.

The letter is written to Valentin Fedoseevich (1845­

1912) who was a famous Russian veterinarian

and the founder of the social veterinary practice i

Moscow. In 1902 he worked as chief of the veterinary

administration of the ministry of internal affairs.

This is the very first edition of Jean­Jacques Rousseau's

(1712 ­1778) principal work "Émile" which was

first issued in an 8vo edition. Later the same year a

smaller 12mo edition was also issued, both editions

printed by Jean Néaulme. "Emile" was not only one of

the first Bildungsromanen ever published, it also had

a large impact on the philosophy on the upbringing

of children as it was one of the first complete works

on the philosophy of education. Rousseau's thoughts

on the naturalness of the child and the contradictions

between the individual and society presented in

this work was widely influential and are still present

in modern day philosophies on education and the

upbringing of children.

Inserted in this first edition is an autograph receipt

written and signed by Rousseau. He writes the book

trader M. de La Combe from Montmercy a receipt

for 48 pounds he has received for 6 manuscripts on

29 April 1762 ­ the same year as "Émile" was first

DEN INTERNATIONALE HERMAN BANG

EN DIGTER-KONGE

Den danske forfatter Herman Bang

(1857­1912) levede det meste af sit liv

langt fra de stille eksistenser i provinsen,

som gjorde ham internationalt berømt.

Hidtil ukendte sider af Herman Bangs

kunstneriske virke og internationale

tilværelse i Europas storbyer belyses på

ny i to store enestående samlinger af

fotografier, manuskripter og breve fra

forfatterens hånd, hvoraf størstedelen

ikke tidligere har været kendt i offentligheden.

De nu udbudte samlinger dækker perioden

fra 1880’erne til få dage før Herman Bangs

død i 1912 og rummer ikke tidligere kendte

fotografier af forfatteren – fra ungdom til

alderdom – samt mere end 220 breve sendt

fra knap 10 forskellige nationer. Dermed er

materialet ikke bare det mest omfattende fra

Bangs hånd udbudt på auktion nogensinde,

det dokumenterer også store dele af Herman

Bangs korte liv og kunstneriske produktion.

Dahl-familien

Den ene samling – størstedelen af materialet

– består af breve fra Herman Bang skrevet til

hans gode venner Kristian og Olga Dahl. De

tidligste af brevene er stilet til Kristian Dahl

(1861-1934) og stammer fra 1888-1891.

Kristian Dahl var journalist sammen med

Bang og blev senere formand for Journalistforbundet.

Han har lagt navn til Kristian

Dahls Mindelegat (kaldet ”Den lille Cavlingpris”,

der gives til journalister, der har ydet en

bemærkelsesværdig indsats). I brevene giver

Herman Bang bl.a. råd om, hvordan Dahl gør

sine hoser grønne på bladredaktionerne rundt

68

Blandt materialet fra Herman Bangs forlægger

E.A. Hirschsprung var en samling manuskriptblade

skrevet med Herman Bangs minutiøse

hånd. De i alt 25 blade har ikke tidligere være

kendt. Bladene udgør de tid ligste stadier af

hovedværket ”Stuk” (1887). Bang­manuskripter

af så stor litteraturhistorisk betydning udbydes

kun yderst sjældent på auktion. (Kat. nr. 4057).

I EKSIL

omkring: ”Ser De, for hver Gang De staar

i disse to store Blade, er jo meget vundet.

Redaktioner ne vænner sig til Dem, og De

ved selv, hvad ”Vanen” vil sige i den daglige

Gænge ved et Blad. Det næste, De nu skal

sende det Blad, er: ”Ibsens Stykke kommer”

– og saa fortælle om, hvordan København

venter og tager imod Skuespillet.” (9. december

1890).

Forlæggeren Hirschsprung

Den anden brev- og manuskriptsamling på

auktionen hidrører fra Herman Bangs

forlægger på Det Schubotheske Forlag,

Einar Aage Hirschsprung (1869-1909), der

var søn af grundlæggeren af Hirschsprungs

samling Heinrich Hirschsprung. Brevene

er skrevet i perioden 1901 til ca. 1908 og

omhandler i høj grad arbejdet med både nye

bøger (bl.a. ”Ludvigsbakke”, ”Det graa Hus”

og ”De uden Fædreland”) og ældre værker

(genudgivelser af ”Stuk” og ”Ved Vejen”).

Men også Bangs tilbud fra udenlandske forlæggere

såvel som hans omdømme berøres:

”Mere betyder det dog, at jeg nu trænger

frem i Rusland, hvor Maxim Gorki ønsker mig

paa det Forlag, hvis Leder han er. Han skrev

nylig til en Ven: ””Hendes Højhed” synes mig

et af Tidens Mesterværker.” (10. jan. 1908).

Desuden dokumenteres Bangs ofte meget

presserende pengeproblemer i brevene til

Hirschsprung – næsten i hvert eneste brev

slutter i denne stil: ”Giv mig blot 15 kr. Vi

har ingen Mad i Huset.”

Eksil-forfatter

Flere af Dahl-brevene er sendt fra Nakskov,

hvorfra Bang betegner sig selv som en

”Digter-Konge i Eksil” (Nakskov, u.å. [1889]).

Den skandaløse

Bang

Set med samtidens øjne var Herman

Bang en fremmed fugl. Den selvbevidste

homoseksuelle kunstner med det

store talent for at skrive, instruere og

polemisere provokerede mange. En

kendsgerning han livet igennem blev

konfronteret med, når han stak næsen

eller pennen for langt frem. Han var

et let offer for latterliggørelse eller

decideret forfølgelse. Allerede med sin

debut roman Haabløse Slægter (1880)

vakte Bang forargelse og skandale.

Den skildrede en ældre kvindes forhold

til meget yngre mænd. Bang blev

idømt en bøde for sit ”utugtige” værk,

og første udgaven af bogen, der i forvejen

kun udkom i et lille oplag, blev

konfi skeret. Senere oplag fi ndes derfor

kun i kraf tigt redigerede udgaver. (Kat.

nr. 4061).

Vurdering 4.000­6.000 kr.

Han er i selvvalgt eksil for at gøre hovedværket

”Tine” færdig: ”Med Bogen gaar det

jævnt elendigt. Jeg skriver nu paa næstsidste

Kapitel og det Sidste er skrevet.” (u.å. [foråret

1889]). Senere kan han dog endelig sætte det

sidste smertelige punktum: ”Igaar blev min

Bog færdig. Og aldrig har min Stilling været

så fortvivlet som i dette Øjeblik. Det kan slet

ikke beskrives.” (u.å. [maj 1889]).

I det hele taget fylder Bangs sindsstemninger

meget i de mange breve. ”Nej, min ven,

komme til Jul kan jeg ikke. Mit Sind er for

tungt dertil og mit Liv altfor fuldt af Mørke

og Taager […] mig passer Ensomhed bedst

for,” skriver han til Dahl i julen 1890, samme

år som han forsøgte at begå selvmord i

Norge.

Sjælevennen Olga

Hovedparten af Dahl-brevene er imidlertid

ikke skrevet til Kristian, men hans kone, Olga

Dahl (f. Hasselbalch, 1862-1915). Hun er ikke

nævneværdigt beskrevet nogen steder i litteraturen

om Bang, men er den kvinde, som

hans lille roman ”Sommerglæder” (1902) er

dedikeret til. Brevene viser imidlertid, at Herman

Bangs forhold til Olga var meget nært:

”Altid vil mine Tanker søge til Dem som til

min bedste Ven” (7. jun. 1907). Den hengiven

hed og indforståethed, som udtrykkes i

både breve og dedikationseksemplarerne i

samlingen, viser, at Herman Bang i Olga Dahl

fandt en beslægtet sjæl. En fortrolig som

forstod den livssmerte, der ofte plagede ham

fysisk såvel som psykisk – ”Vi tre er vel lige

ene i Verden”, skriver han til hende og datteren

Signe (kaldet Søster) i november 1911.

Sejrer og skuffelser

Ud over det nære forhold til Olga Dahl og

forsøget på at komme overens med livssmerten,

beskriver brevene Herman Bangs stræben

efter anerkendelse samt ikke mindst mødet

med fremmede himmelstrøg. Mange af

brevene er skrevet i de sidste 10 år af hans

liv – en periode, der var præget af store sejre

såvel som skuffelser. Blandt sejrene talte den

støt stigende anerkendelse – dog primært i

udlandet. I Rusland blev han anerkendt af

Gorki og omtalt som en dansk Tjekov, og

i Frankrig betegnede den impressionistiske

maler Claude Monet ham som den første

impressionistiske forfatter i verden.

I Danmark lod anerkendelsen imidlertid vente

på sig – til trods for hans store betydning

for dansk litteratur. I 1906 blev han, som så

ofte før, offer for smædefuld kritik. Denne

gang var det forfatterkollegaen Johannes V.

Jensen, som han beundrede meget, der førte

kniven og udstillede hans homoseksualitet

– et hårdt slag for den følsomme Bang, der

skuffet flyttede til Berlin.

Fremmedgjort og nedbrudt

Brevene til Olga og Hirschsprung fra Berliner-

Flere af samlingens fotografier har ikke tidligere været offentliggjort. Her

ses to: den unge Bang fra begyndelsen af 1880’erne samt et, hvor Bang

minder om en H.C. Andersen­pastiche. (Kat. nr. 4053)

tiden vidner om en skuffet og nedbrudt

mand – fysisk og psykisk. Følelsen af at være

en uønsket, fremmed fugl i Danmark ligger

hele tiden på lur i brevene, her ét til Olga :

”Men i Land i København kommer jeg ikke.

Hvordan skulle vel det være muligt? Skulle

jeg endnu engang piskes som en gal Hund

gennem alle Gader? Og naturligvis vilde det

ske – nu som sidst. Og hvem vilde forsvare

mig, naar D’hr. Cawling og Johannes V.

Jen sen satte sig i Spidsen […]? I mit skønne

Fædreland tilgiver man mig ikke, at jeg

trodser Aander. Og jeg tænker ikke en gang,

at man efter min Død, vil tilgive mig, at jeg

har aandet.” (6. sep. 1908). Samtidig føler

Bang sig dog heller ikke særligt hjemme i

Berlin: ”Altid er der trist i et fremmed Land

[…] Hvorhen man rejser er egentlig saa ligegyldigt.

Sine Kufferter (sine Sejre) skal man

dog slæbe med allevegne.” (5. juni 1908).

På rejse gennem Europa

FOCUS

Til trods for Herman Bangs mismodige udtalelse

om fremmede lande begav han sig ud

på sit livs rejse i efteråret 1911. Første del

af færden var en oplæsningsturné rundt i

Europa – gennem Sverige, Finland, Rusland,

Polen og Tyskland – for at skaffe midler til

Blandt brevene lå et hidtil ukendt

fotopostkort af en smilende Herman

Bang og den omrejsende Pantomimetrup,

som han rejste på turné med i

november 1911. (Kat. nr. 4052)

Bag på et af de mange postkort fra

den sidste oplæsningsturné skriver

han: ”Altsaa: jeg sejrede. Huset var

udsolgt, og Publikum dybt grebet.

Stemningen steg til Begejstring. Den

hidtil udkomne Kritik fastslaar ”det

souveræne Mesterskab” (Moskva,

Herman Bang er forfatter til en

række impressionistiske romaner,

som vakte både begejstring og

misundelse blandt digterkollegaer,

da han brød igennem i 1880’erne.

Bangs litterære varemærke blev

beskrivelsen af de stille, provinsielle

skikkelsers ulykkelige skæbner. Ofte

kvinder uden udsigt til hverken

forløsning eller frigørelse. De otte

digtmanuskripter fra Dahl­samlingen,

stammer alle, på nær digtet

”Hjemliv”, fra digtsamlingen ”Digte”

(1889). Digtet omhandler det mest

centrale tema i Bangs litteratur,

de stille eksistenser (Kat. nr. 4054).

ejste forfatter – på linje med H.C. Andersen

og Johannes V. Jensen. Bangs breve til Olga

fra europaturnéen svinger fra intense skildringer

af byer og folk til kortfattede tilkendegivelser

om triumfer eller fi askoer – ”Det var

virkelig rørende. Jeg maa være meget elsket

i dette besynderlige Land,” (20. dec. 1911)

skriver han efter en oplæsning i Moskva. Også

skildringerne af den medrejsende husholderske

Frøken Thunes enestående store appetit

og uhyre lille interesse for at rejse er kostelige

– Bang overvejer ligefrem, at give hende en

rolle i et af sine værker.

Den sidste storm

Men allerede tidligt under turnéen skriver

Bang til Olga: ”Men jeg tror nu, der kommer

noget i Vejen for den Rejse. Men jeg vil af -

sted.” (Helsingfors, 20. nov. 1911). Hans for -

udanelse om at ikke alt ville gå, som det

skulle, slog ikke fejl. Anden del af rejsen (der

skulle bringe ham fra Tyskland i skib til New

York og videre med tog gennem USA til San

Fran sisco og videre på endnu med et skib

med kurs mod Japan) sluttede brat i toget på

vej fra Chicago til San Fransisco. Den lange

rejse tærede på Bangs i forvejen skrantende

helbred, og han blev fundet bevidstløs i toget

den 28. januar 1912. Han døde dagen efter

på et hospital i Utah.

I sine sidste breve til Olga skildrer Bang imidlertid

sin hverdag under den lange rejse samt

sine dramatiske oplevelser under en atlanterhavsstorm

på vej over Atlanten: ”Stormen

var uhyre og uhyre skøn. Et Øjeblik skjalv

alle. Men den ene skjuler det for den anden.”

Også forventningerne til mødet med Amerika

beskrives: ”Jeg har altid haft en Skræk for

dette Land og har det også nu.” (11. jan.

1912). Det aller sidste kort er sendt fra Hotel

Astor i New York den 22. januar – blot få

dage før hans død.

Et alsidigt talent

Herman Bang rejste meget. Både for

at komme væk fra skandaler og dårlig

omtale, men også for at tjene penge.

Han kunne aldrig leve af sin litteratur

alene. Han ernærede sig derfor

primært som journalist ved forskellige

blade og aviser overalt i Europa. Hans

ligefremme skildringer af det moderne

liv, der krydrede det seriøse med det

lette, var meget populære.

Herudover var han en elsket oplæser

og instruktør både i København og

Paris. Hans opsætninger af bl.a. Henrik

Ibsens og August Strindbergs værker

på L’Oevres teatret i Paris i 1890’erne

fi k afgørende betydning for deres

anerkendelse og udbredelse i hele

verden.

Manuskriptet fundet i Dahl­samlingen

er en del af en længere artikel om

Bangs forhold til Henrik Ibsen og hans

værker. Artiklen blev bragt i tidsskriftet

”Det ny Aarhundrede” i forbindelse

Herman Bang

- Important collection of letters

Important collection of more than 120 autograph

letters, telegrams and lettercards sent to Kristian

and Olga Dahl and signed by Herman Bang. Dated

between 24 December 1888 to 22 January 1912.

Sent from Denmark, Norway, Finland, Sweden,

Germany, Austria, Poland, Russia and the USA.

The material comprises 72 letters, 5 telegrams

and 50 postcards including a hitherto unknown

photographic postcard of Herman Bang (with a

rare smile) posing with a pantomime group he

was travelling with in November 1911. Dated 9.

November 1911. Enclosed 1 autograph letter by

the Norwegian writer Rosenkrandtz Johnsen to

Herman Bang + 2 orig. photographs of The Thomas

D. Dee Hospital, Ogden, Utah where Herman

Bang died.

This unique collection covers more than half of Herman

Bang's lifetime and gives a unique view into

the art, life and mind of one of the greatest Danish

writers of the 19th and 20th centuries. Bang introduced

a new impressionistic writing style in Danish

and European literature. Abroad ­ from Germany to

Russia ­ his works were at first much more positively

received than in Denmark and he was a great inspiration

for many including the author Thomas Mann

(1875­1955) and the painter Claude Monet (1840­

1926), who claimed, Bang was the first impressionistic

writer in the world.

74

4052

The first part of the letters were written from 1888­

1891 to Kristian Dahl (1861­1934) a journalist friend

of Bang. These letters are concerned with journalistic

matters as well as Herman Bang's thoughts when

writing one of his most acknowledged impressionistic

novels: "Tine" (1889). The majority of the letters were

written to Kristian Dahl's wife Olga Dahl (1862­1915)

­ the woman he dedicated his novel "Sommerglæder"

to in 1902. She became a close friend of Herman

Bang. The letters uncover new information about

their close relationship as well as about his hardships

during his stay in Berlin, were he moved from 1907­

1910 after having been unrightfully critisized and

scorned for being a homosexual by the Danish author

and winner of the Nobel Prize, Johannes V. Jensen

(1848­1923).

Also Bang's international life and reputation are

uncovered in the letters sent from his many travels

abroad. Especially his last reading tour through most

of Europe and Russia and his final travel to America

­ were he died on 29 January 1912 ­ are described

in detail. Most of the material here offered for sale

have never before been accessible to the public. The

material is the most comprehensive collection of

autograph material from Herman Bang to be offered

for sale ever.

Provenance: The descendants of editor Kristian Dahl

and his wife Olga Dahl (maiden name Hasselbalch).

Herman Bang - Original photographs

Collection of 8 original photographs of Herman

Bang, 2 of which have been inscribed for Olga

Dahl by Herman Bang. C. 1880's to 1910's. + 1

Like his famous literary colleague Hans Christian

Andersen (1805­1875), Herman Bang liked to be

photographed and he developed a certain sinister,

melancolic and even decadent posture that became

his trademark. Among the eight photographs here

presented four have not been registered or published

before. The photographs of the young Bang, Bang in

H.C. Andersen posture with a high hat and the two

"family" photographs of Bang with the two Dahl

children, Erna and Signe, and two other children have

hitherto not been registered at The Royal Library in

Copenhagen.

Herman Bang - Autograph letter and

manuscripts

Collection of 8 autograph manuscripts for poems

by Herman Bang incl. 7 poems from his work

"Digte 1889" and one unpublished entitled

"Hjemliv". In all 14 pages. Enclosed one autograph

letter by Herman Bang to Kristian Dahl asking him

about the poems of "Digte", that he sent him. 1

1/2 pages. Dated 26 December 1889. + Kristian

Dahl's copy of Herman Bang: Digte. Cph 1889. 1st

edition. In orig. boards. Spine defect and boards

loose.

Seven of the eight manuscripts for poems here presented

were all published in Herman Bang's collection

of poems "Digte" in 1889 ­ the only collection of

poems he ever published. The poems of "Digte" (1889)

were not as well received by the literary critics as his

novels. As the letter to Kristian Dahl reveals this came

as quite a chock for Herman Bang, who felt he had

put all his literary integrety on the line when writing

the poems: "De har vel dog nu faaet mine "Digte" som

sendtes herfra i Søndags? De skulle vel først have

dem, De, kære gode Dahl, som er den eneste, der ved

­ af mere end Gætning ­ om al den Lidelse, der skabte

dem [...] til mit sidste Suk skal jeg mindes den Haan,

et "Aftenbladet" tør slynge mod mig. Og man maa tie.

Hele Bitterheden, hele Gruen i ens Skæbne møder En i

slige Øjeblikke."

78

4054

The last and unpublished manuscript for the poem

"Hjemliv" is concerned with authorship and also

touches on a central theme in Bang's literary production,

the quiet life: "Kunde jeg finde de ømmeste Ord,/

ømme som din Røst/ og bøje dem i de blødeste Fald/

bløde som din Lød ­ / ­ da fik jeg vel det Billede malt./

Men Ord saa nænsomt ømme, saa ganske blide ­/

stilfærdige Lykke."

Herman Bang was a front figure in promoting Henrik

Ibsen's (1828­1906) plays outside the Scandinavian

countries. In the 1890's he became the first to direct

Henrik Ibsen's plays abroad, thus introducing Ibsen's

art to the world. This manuscript fragment deals

with Herman Bang's relationship with Henrik Ibsen

and describes Bang's enormous respect for Ibsen as

playwright and as a man. The manuscript goes into

detail with Bang's work with Ibsen's plays at Lugné­

Poe's Theatre L'Oevres in Paris in the 1890's. He also

describes how the introvert playwright reacted at the

premiere of the play "Bygmester Solness" and how

Ibsen came up to Bang afterwords and recognized his

work as a director: "Dette var mit Stykkes Genopstandelse."

Herman Bang's article on Ibsen was published in the

now almost forgotten magazine "Det ny Aarhundrede"

(which was only published in 6 volumes

between 1903 to 1909) at the time of Ibsen's death

in 1906.

Herman Bang - Important collection of

letters

Important collection of more than 100 autograph

letters and lettercards sent to his publisher Einar

Aage Hirschsprung signed by Herman Bang.

Dated 14 January 1901 to 28 June 1908. Several

letters not dated. Sent from Denmark and Berlin.

Enclosed 6 autograph letters written by Herman

Bang's secretary signed by Herman Bang. Dated

27 November 1903 to 11 May 1904. + 1 autograph

letter by Herman bang's sister Nini Holst.

Not dated.

The letters in this important collection were written

from 1901­1908 to Herman Bang's publisher at Det

Schubotheske Forlag, Einar Aage Hirschsprung (1869­

1909), the son of Heinrich Hirschsprung, who founded

the museum Hirschsprungs Samling in Copenhagen.

The letters document Herman Bang's work with several

of his most accomplished works in this periode,

"Ludvigsbakke", "Det graa Hus", "Mikaël", "De uden

Fædreland" as well as new editions of his earlier and

most acclaimed works such as "Stuk" and "Ved Vejen".

Several letters deal with how he wants his early

works distributed and sold.

80

4056

Also his thoughts about his own literary legacy are

unfolded ­ he is especially concerned with the literary

impact of "Stuk". The process of writing fiction opposed

to articles is also dealt with: "Jeg kan ikke nu

strax igen mishandle min Hjerne saadan som jeg nu

maa mishandle den, naar jeg skal skrive Romaner,

som skal forsvare min Stilling her i Landet og Verden."

Almost all of the letters reveal the pecuniary problems

of Herman Bang. In Hirschsprung he found a

discrete person who sent him money when he was

haunted by loan sharks and when everyone else

turned their back to his requests. The pecuniary

problems, however bad, also seemed to generate a lot

of new ideas for literary works he could write in order

to pay his debts to Hirschsprung and others ­ (e.g.

he describes his work on the unknown work "Kunstnerkonen")

many of them were never published.

Provenance: Descendants of the Hirschsprung family.

Herman Bang - Unpublished manuscripts

Collection of autograph manuscripts with autograph

corrections by Herman Bang including 25

autograph manuscript leaves written by Herman

Bang in minute hand, all numbered. Various sizes.

[1886] + 13 autograph manuscripts for unpublished

poems by Herman Bang. Dated 1899-1901.

21 pages.

This important collection of unpublished autograph

manuscripts by Herman Bang includes 25 autograph

manuscript leaves. The manuscript describes characters

(e.g. Bernhard Hoff) and scenes that indicate that

the leaves are fragments of a very early and hitherto

unknown version of Herman Bang's principal work

"Stuk" (1887), which Bang wrote from October 1886

until September 1887.

During his writing of "Stuk" Bang had several difficulties

with his publisher Andreas Schou who did not

aprove of the early versions of the novel. Especially

the first couple of chapters were problematic and

were later harshly edited by Schou. Bang had written

the first two chapters of the novel, whose work title

at this point was "Bernhard Hoff", in December 1886.

But material from this early stage has hitherto been

considered lost (this process is described in detail by F.

Conrad in "Omkring Stuk", Hårsløf, p. 16­34).

82

4057

However the manuscript leaves here presented describe

several scenes from the final edition of "Stuk"

in a similar, but recognizable form. Also the manuscript's

title character, Bernhard Hoff, who Bang later

renamed Herluf Berg ­ Herman Bang's alter ego ­ is

described. In December 1886 Bang wrote to his other

publisher Poul Schubothe Langhoff (who took over

the publishing of "Stuk" from Schou in the spring

of 1887): "Bernh. Hoff faar et andet Navn og Bogen

kaldes Stuk". The manuscript leaves were therefore

written as early as the fall of 1886 and make out the

hitherto earliest known version of Herman Bang's

novel "Stuk".

The manuscript leaves all have different sizes and

have all been cut out of larger leaves. When Bang

edited his own works of fiction, he would cut out

good parts from earlier versions in order to save himself

the trouble of writing everything twice (Hårsløf,

p. 16), thus the manuscript also documents Bang's

creative process.

Provenance: Descendants of the Hirschsprung family.

Haabløse Slægter was Herman Bang's first novel

which made scandalous headlines when it came out

due to a description of the relationship between a

young man and a much older woman, which was

considered obscene. Bang was ordered to pay a fine

and the remaining copies of the first printing ­ which

Just Mathias Thiele (1795­1874) was one of the

central figures in the Danish Golden Age. As an art

historian, collector of folklore, publisher of "Danish

Folktale" (1818­23), a patron of arts and founder

of The Royal Collection of Prints and Drawings in

Copenhagen his career was outstanding. His work

was strongly supported by prince Christian VIII and

the letters in the collection bear witness to their

close correspondence and relationship. Thiele's letter

archive is an important source for illuminating

the artistic environment in the Danish Golden Age.

Besides letters from the essential artists and cultural

figures of the period, the material also contains letters

and documentation from Just Thiele (1823­1876)

the nephew of Just Mathias Thiele. He inherited the

printing house "H.H. Thieles Bogtrykkeri" after his

father in 1846 and he ran the business with great

success. A great deal of his bussiness came from the

Danish state and included the printing of stamps and

bank notes. "H.H. Thieles Bogtrykkeri" also printed

popular books such as "Folkekalender for Danmark"

(1852­76) (People's Calendar of Denmark) as well as

many first printings of H.C. Andersen's famous fairy

tales.

Provenance: Descendants of Just Mathias Thiele.

H.C. Andersen (1805­1875) became acquainted with

the Thiele family through Just Mathias Thiele who

was a very important person to the young and promising

writer. In Thiele's memoirs he describes his first

impression and meeting with the younger Andersen

like this: "Og hvad hed saa denne Dreng? Nu kan

man med Glæde og med Taarer i Øiet sige det uden

at fornærme eller i nogen Maade at nedsætte ham,

nu, da han er blevet en Yndlingsdigter, ikke blot i Danmark,

men næsten over hele Guds grønne Jord ! Det

var Hans Christian Andersen ! Men han var min Ven,

førend han blev verdensberømt, og førend man i hans

Fødeland havde faaet Øinene op for den i ham boende

Genius". Thiele: "Af mit livs Aarbøger" (1820).

The books here presented have passed to different

members of the Thiele family through the years. One

of the previous owners Ida Thiele, was a descendant

to the "first" Ida Thiele (1830­35) (the daugther of

Just Mathias Thiele) who was source of inspiration for

H.C. Andersens's fairy­tale "Den lille Idas Blomster"

(1835).

The creator of "Fabler for Börn", which has been

called the first "real" Danish children's book, was the

engraver O.O. Bagge (1780­1836). Bagge planned

to publish 4 volumes but only 3 were published. The

work was to expensive to make and it could not compete

with the much cheaper children's books which

were imported from Germany.

Bagge's close friend Eckersberg (1783­1853), one of

the pioneers in the Golden Age of Danish painting has

THE GLOSSY

DREAM

Glossy picture scraps with intriguing

motives have fascinated collectors of all

ages since they first appeared around

1860. The following pages present one

of the largest and most well preserved

collections of early printed scraps from

the 19th century to be offered for sale

in Denmark in many years – the Jan

Hansen Scrap Collection.

The almost 2500 scraps in this unique collection

of Danish and European scraps have

been collected through a life time. Many of

the scraps were acquired from the sales of

prominent Danish scrap collections such as

Vibeke Stybe’s and Estrid Faurholt’s collections

(later in the Lego Toy Collection), both

of whom were authors of publications on

scraps and pictorial books of the 19th century.

The material comprises scraps from the

early illustrated broad sheets of the early part

of the 19th century to the glossy pictures

of the late 19th and early 20th century. The

vastness and variety of motives, sizes and

styles give an intriguing and rare insight

into the almost forgotten pictorial world of

the 19th century – from romantic sceneries,

exo tic landscapes, enchanting children and

angels to fairies, elfs and circus clowns.

the albums were pasted with engravings

(woodcut or copperplate) cut out from illustrated

broad sheets printed in black and

white. With the invention and development

of a new lithographic printing technique

in the first part of the century, the pictures

please turn over

121


SCRAPS

became more advanced and also more accessible.

From the 1840s the invention of a

chromolithographic process allowed printers

to make colour printed pictures.

The first colour scraps

The prints made in the 1840s and 1850s

were still quite primitive compared to later

because the printing process was so elaborate:

when making prints in colour, every

colour needed its own stone plate, thus

colour pictures were also quite expensive to

print. But later the process became much

more efficient and a world of colours were

introduced to the printers and the public. The

printers immediately saw the opportunity of

selling colourful pictures to the many collectors:

at first, mainly adults, only in the latter

part of the century did it become a hobby for

children.

The glossy pictures

Around 1860 the first elaborate colour scraps

with glossy surfaces appeared. In these years

the scraps were small and rectangular and

made in sheets to cut out with scissors. The

122

motives were dreamy and sentimental depicting

children and romantic couples and held

in pastel colours, some were even decorated

with gilded frames and tinsel. Later the

printing technique became even more refined

and the scraps were embossed and surplus

paper was cut off around the edges which

gave the scraps a new dimension and range

of motives.

The golden age of scraps

From the 1860 and to the 1910s the production,

quality and fascination with the shiny

pictures peaked – they were widely used for

decorating albums, small decorative boxes,

jars, furniture, screens as well as cakes and

greeting cards. The world famous Danish fairy

tale writer Hans Christian Andersen (1805-

1875) was also enchanted by the scraps. He

made both picture albums for children and

decorated large screens using various kinds

of scraps. But even though the tradition of

decorating with scraps was widespread and

they were printed in thousands and thousands

of sheets, the ephemeral nature of the

scraps has made these early originally printed

lithographic pictures of the 19th century

increasingly rare on the market.

The golden age of scraps

Important collection of more than 500 originally

printed scraps from the 1860s to the 1890s. The

collection includes a broad variety of scraps from

miniature to large scale figures, primarily the early

rectangular shaped scraps. The smallest scrap

measures 2 x 1,5 cm, the largest 20,7 x 16,5 cm.

Some mounted on cardboard. Among the themes

are several early motifs with gilded frame and

tinsel, English and Danish members of the royal

family, sentimental motifs, religious motifs, angels,

exotic landscapes and people, soldiers, children

playing, portraits of women, flowers, animals and

ships.

124

4096

Early scraps of the 1860s and 1870s were characterized

by being rectangular, printed in sheets to cut out

by the collectors themselves. The shiny surface comes

from a glossy membrane or film that was glued on

after the printing ­ often the membrane has fallen off

leaving the edges of these early scraps slighly curled.

Not until the 1870s did the printers begin to make

scraps with glossy, embossed surfaces. Faurholt, p.

6­11.

Provenance: Several scraps derive from the Karen

Schou Scrap Collection, later in the Jan Hansen Scrap

Collection.

The scrap historian and collector Estrid Faurholdt

(1900­1987) was one of the most well known Danish

collectors of early clippings and scraps in Denmark.

Her collection was earlier in the "Lego toy and scrap

collection" which for a number of years was exhibited

at the Lego museum in the Legoland park in Denmark.

Later the entire collection including the scraps was

sold at auction in America. Faurholt was also known

as the author of one of the only Danish works on the

history of scraps "De kære små billeder".

Rare early Father Christmas

scrap of the 1860s.

One of the most popular mythic figures in Western

culture, Father Christmas, was also a popular scrap

figure during the golden age of scraps. The figure

was first portrayed on scraps in the 1860s, but scraps

depicting Father Christmas are extremely rare from

this early period. Not even the Danish scrap historian

and collector Estrid Faurholt owned one: "Julemanden

har vi nær glemt, og han har dog troligt været med.

I 1860'erne og 1870'erne har jeg ikke set nogen. Et

af de rigtige, store, dejlige juletræer er nu en formue

værd. " (Faurholt, s. 17, 20­21).

As this collection documents Father Christmas' image

changes quite a bit during the years ­ from a bearded

man with a hat dressed in various colours to the

more jovial representation dressed in red and white

colours, that was introduced in the beginning of the

20th century ­ even before Coca­Cola made this type

of representation the common stereotype with their

adds depicting a Coca­Cola drinking Santa Claus in

1931.

Provenance: The early scrap of Father Christmas

printed in the 1860s was earlier in the collection of

Vibeke Stybe, author of "Fra billedark til billedbog".

Later in the Jan Hansen Scrap Collection.

COMMISSION BIDS

KOMMISSIONSBUD

It is possible to leave commission bids if you can not

be pre sent at the auction yourself. This service is free

of charge.

When leaving a commission bid, you are instructing our

customer service to bid up to a specified amount on

your behalf.

The situation can occur that another buyer has already

bid the same as you were prepared to. Are you then

willing to bid further? If not the lot will be sold to

another buyer.

If you do not wish to exceed your bid then write “Max”,

for maxi mum, next to the amount. You can also allow

us to raise your bid by approx. 15% or approx. 25%.

The hammer price may be higher or lower than the

estima ted price, so it is possible to buy below the estimate.

Bruun Rasmussen will always buy at the lowest

price possible, as if you yourself had been present at

the auction.

All commission bids are strictly confidential.

Commission bids must be submitted no later than

24 hours prior to the start of the auction.

HOW TO MAKE A COMMISSION BID:

Complete the commission form with all pertinent information.

Indicate the lot number.

Indicate the amount you are prepared to bid.

Should this amount be the absolute maxi mum, please

write “Max” in the ap pro priate column.

You can also allow us to bid by up to approx. 15% or

approx. 25% more by indicating so.

Sign the commission form and make sure that Bruun

Ras mussen receives it 24 hours prior to the start of the

auction.

If the information should be insufficient, Bruun Rasmussen

can abstain from bidding. Bruun Rasmussen

can not be held responsible for error in bidding or failure

to execute bids.

After the auction Bruun Rasmussen’s 24-hour “hammerprice-information”

is available for sale results at

+45 8818 1113.

INTERNET:

Commision bids can be placed via the website www.

bruun-rasmussen.dk directly from the page with the

item you want to place a bid for.

As a special service for this auction, all bids placed

price (or reserve price) for each lot prior to the auction

in Bredgade. Please note that the deadline for placing

bids online is 3 hours prior to the start of the auction.

Please contact technical support on +45 8818 1114 for

questions about the registration and submission of bids

on the website

TELEPHONE BIDDING:

Should you wish to bid at auction by telephone, please

inform Bruun Rasmussen of your name and telephone

number, as well as which catalogue numbers you are

"Conditions of Purchase" §1.

Det er muligt at afgive kommissionsbud, hvis De ikke

selv kan være til stede på auk tions dagen. Denne service

er gratis.

Når De afgiver en kommission, beder De vores kundeservice

på Deres vegne byde op til et af Dem bestemt

beløb i hammerslag.

Der kan opstå den situation, at en anden køber allerede

har budt det beløb, som De ønsker at afgive. Er De da

villig til at gå et bud højere eller er De indforstået med

at nummeret sælges til anden side?

Ønsker De ikke at byde højere så skriv “Max” ud for

beløbet. Er De i tvivl om hvor højt De vil byde, kan De

hæve budet med op til ca. 15% eller ca. 25%.

Salgsprisen kan blive højere eller lavere end vurderingen,

så der er også mulighed for at købe til under den

angivne vurdering. Vor kun deservice køber altid så billigt

som muligt til Dem, som havde De selv været tilstede

på auktionen.

Alle kommissioner behandles strengt fortroligt.

Kommisionsbud skal være Bruun Rasmussen i hænde

senest 24 timer før auktionens start.

SÅDAN BYDER DE:

Udfyld blanketten kommissionsbud med alle oplysninger.

Angiv katalognummer.

Angiv beløbet De ønsker at byde.

Er dette Deres absolutte maximum bedes De anføre

“Max” i kolonnen.

15% eller ca. 25%, ved at ind ikere dette i kolonnen.

De bedes underskrive kommissionsblanketten og sikre

Dem, at Bruun Rasmussen mod tager den senest 24 timer

før auktionens start.

Hvis Deres oplysninger ikke er tilstrækkelige, kan Bruun

Ras mussen undlade at byde for Dem, ligesom Bruun

Rasmussen ikke kan gøres ansvarlig for fejl ved budgivningen.

Efter auktionen vil De kunne få oplysninger om priser

på vor automatiske 24 timers “Hammerslagsoplysning”

på telefon 8818 1113.

INTERNET:

at aktivere alle bud, der indtastes via hjemmesiden. De

kan således se den aktuelle startpris og orientere Dem

om andres bud, når De selv skal byde. Seneste afgivelse

af bud via hjemmesiden er 3 timer før auktionens start.

Kontakt teknisk support på 8818 1114 for spørgsmål om

registrering og budgivning via internettet.

Såfremt De ønsker at byde pr. telefon, bedes De oplyse

Bruun Rasmussen Deres navn og telefonnummer samt

CONDITIONS OF PURCHASE – KØBSKONDITIONER *

§ 1. BIDDING

The buyer shall be the highest bidder at the “hammer price”. Any

person bidding on behalf of a third party shall be liable in surety

for completion of the sale.

At the request of Bruun Rasmussen Kunstauktioner (herein after

called Bruun Rasmussen), all bidders, whether they wish to make

bids in person at the place of auction or commission bids by letter

or fax or direct telephone bids, should be able to document

their ability to pay and be able to provide proof of identity at

any time. Bruun Rasmussen is entitled to refuse to accept a bid

if, when requested, adequate security or adequate payment on

account has not been rendered.

Bids should be made by the bidder in person at the place of auction

or by written commission. Telephone bidding is possible

within certain conditions made out by Bruun Rasmussen. Bruun

Rasmussen is not to be held responsible for any errors that may

occur using this service. The auctioneer shall have absolute discretion

as to the increment of the bids. The auctioneer will also

make decisions in all cases of doubt regarding the bidding

Credit/debit card information must be registered with Bruun

Rasmussen before bids can be submitted at our online auctions.

§ 2. PAYMENT

The purchase price is the hammer price plus 25% in buyer’s premium,

including VAT, for lots sold subject to the special VAT

scheme for sales of Works of Art, Collectors’ items and Antiques,

and secondhand goods by Public Auction (hereinafter called Special

VAT).

Certain lots are sold in accordance with specific rules on normal

VAT arrangement (hereinafter called normal VAT), so that the

purchase price is the hammer price plus an additional 20% in

buyer’s premium and VAT of 25% levied on both the hammer

price and the buyer’s premium. The lots subject to Full VAT are

indicated as such in the catalogue with an asterix (*).

Danish VAT registered buyers shall provide Bruun Rasmussen with

documentation of their SE-/CVR-number (VAT No.) as this has to

be quo ted on the invoice for goods bought at full VAT.

For some foreign buyers, specific VAT-exemption rules apply (cf.

Article 3). VAT-exemption does not apply to private buyers from

the EU who are considered as Danish buyers (cf. current Da nish

legislation on Special VAT Scheme for Sales of Works of Art,

Collec tors’ items and Antiques by Public Auction).

The purchase price falls due for payment when the goods have

been knocked down. Payment may be made in cash up to DKK

100,000, by Dankort, banker’s cheque, traveller’s cheque, Visa-,

Master-, Diners Club- or Euro card. Personal foreig n cheques may

only be used for payment by prior arrange ment.

Payment may be made during or immediately after the auction.

Under all circumstances payment must be made no later than

eight days from the date of the invoice. With online auctions,

payment takes place when the items are prepared for dispatch

(circa 12 hours after the purchase has been made) using the

banking details (credit/debit card and bank account) submitted

by the purchaser. At the same time an invoice and dispatch information

will be sent to the purchaser.

Should the purchase price not be paid by the due date, interest

at 1.5 % per new month will be charged.

If the purchase price and interest are not paid within eight

days after Bruun Rasmussen has sent its demand to the buyer,

Bruun Rasmussen shall be entitled to rescind the sale and re sell

the goods at a Bruun Rasmussen auction or privately, and to

demand reimbursement of any related losses from the defaulting

buyer. Any further profit on the sale shall be payable to the person

who had deposited the goods for sale by auction.

If the defaulting buyer is entitled to proceeds from a sale of

goods by Bruun Rasmussen, Bruun Rasmussen shall be entitled

to set off its receivables against its payables to the defaulting

buyer.

If the defaulting buyer has deposited other goods for sale,

Bruun Rasmussen shall be entitled to sell such goods at a Bruun

Ras mussen auction without being bound by the reserve stipulated

by the defaulting buyer. The defautling buyer shall not be

entitled to demand the surrender of goods deposited for sale as

long as the debt payable to Bruun Rasmussen has not been dis-

150

charged, regardless of whether the value of such goods may be

deemed to exceed the debt payable.

Bruun Rasmussen shall be entitled to refuse a bid made by a

buyer who is in default in respect to his payment obligations

to Bruun Rasmussen, as well as a bid made by a third party on

be half of such a defaulting buyer. Bruun Rasmussen shall further

be entitled to demand a deposit as a condition of accepting any

future bids from such a purchaser.

§ 3. MONEY-BACK GUARANTEE

Online purchase of items by private individuals is subject to Danish

consumer law, which extends 14 days of money-back guarantee.

The purchaser is liable for any costs related to the transport

of returned items.

Should a purchaser seek to avail himself or herself of the moneyback

guarantee, Bruun Rasmussen will refund the payment on

receiving the returned items. Please note that the date on which

accounts are debited is subject to the policy of the purchaser’s

bank/credit card company.

§ 4. EXEMPTION FROM VAT

Foreign buyers who fulfil the conditions stated below shall pay

20% of the hammer price in buyer’s premium and shall not be

subject to Danish taxes and duties:

A. Buyers residing in another EU Member State:

Buyers are exempt from paying Danish VAT as long as they

have provided Bruun Rasmussen with documentation of their

VAT registration. The VAT number will then be quoted on

Bruun Rasmussen’s invoice.

B. Buyers residing outside the EU:

1 Dispatch through forwarding agent: Lots exported through a

forwarding agent approved by Bruun Rasmussen are exempt

from VAT.

2 Export as personal luggage: Goods may be exempt from Danish

VAT when the buyer personally takes the goods out of the country

as luggage, provided the following conditions have been met:

The invoice must have been paid and the Danish duty of 25%

of the invoice amount must have been deposited with Bruun

Rasmussen.

a Buyers residing in Norway will be refunded the Danish VAT as

soon as the invoice of sale has been returned to Bruun Rasmussen

endorsed by the customs authorities of the country in

question or by any other authority with jurisdiction over matters

of purchase tax with respect to official imports of goods

into the country in question if the purchase price exceeds

DKK 1,200.

b Buyers residing in other countries outside the EU will be

refund ed the Danish VAT after the goods have been presented

for customs clearance in connection with the departure of the

buyer from the EU. The exporter’s form should be returned

to Bruun Rasmussen after being endorsed with the customs

autho rities’ export certificate if the purchase price exceeds

DKK 300 This also applies to the Faroe Islands and Greenland.

§ 5. PAYMENT OF TAXES AND DUTIES

A. Buyers with VAT-registration in other EU member states who

do not wish to make use of Article 3 may instead choose to

purchase items subject to Special VAT/Normal VAT in the

same manner as private buyers. Bruun Rasmussen must be

notified of this before 10 a.m. on the following auction day.

B. Buyers with VAT-registration in Denmark may choose to purchase

subject to Normal VAT at 25% of the hammer price

plus premium. Bruun Rasmussen must be notified of this

before 10 a.m. on the following auction day.

§ 6. COLLECTION OF PURCHASES

The purchase price must be paid in full before the purchased lot

can be passed over to the buyer. From the time of the lot being

knocked down to the buyer, until its collection, the purchased lot

will be held at the buyer’s own expense and risk.

BRUUN RASMUSSEN BOOK AUCTION 808


A storage fee will be charged for lots which have not been collected

within 14 days after the time of the lot being knocked

down. Goods which have been paid for but not collected within

1 year will be resold at auction or privately at the buyer's

expense.

§ 7. DISPATCH

Should Bruun Rasmussen undertake the packaging and forwarding

of purchased goods, this shall be done at the buyer’s

own expense and risk. Bruun Rasmussen shall thus not be held

liable neither for any damage caused to purchased goods during

dispatch nor for any missing consignments.

§ 8. DROIT DE SUITE

Pursuant to current Danish legislation on Copyright, an artistic

royalty shall be collected on works of modern art by all Danish

and some foreign artists. Bruun Rasmussen will from the buyer

collect the royalties required on behalf of the artists’ organisation

Copy-Dan for any work of art subject to this law. These works

are identified in the catalogue by CD for Copy-Dan, marked

beside each relevant lot number.

The artistic royalty will be calculated as follows for each work of

art, when the hammerprice exceeds DKK 1,864:

• 5% of the part of the hammerprice ranging from DKK 0 to

DKK 310,729 plus the buyer’s premium (20% excl. VAT)

• 3% of the part of the hammerprice ranging from DKK 310,729

to DKK 1,242,917 plus the buyer’s premium (20% excl. VAT)

• 1% of the part of the hammerprice ranging from DKK 1,242,917

to DKK 2,175,104 plus the buyer’s premium (20% excl. VAT)

• 0.5% of the part of the hammerprice ranging from DKK 2,175,104

to DKK 3,107,292 plus the buyer’s premium (20% excl. VAT)

• 0.25% of the part of the hammerprice lying above DKK 3,107,292

plus the buyer’s premium (20% excl. VAT)

The artistic royalty cannot exceed DKK 93,219 for each work of art.

§ 9. EXPORT LICENCE

Applications for an export licence must be made to the Danish

Cultu ral Assets Committee when required in accordance with

current Danish legislation on the protection and preservation of

cultural assets in Denmark. Where such a licence has not been

obtained, the foreign buyer will be informed thereof immediately

after the lot has been knocked down to the buyer. Another

application will subse quently be sent to the Danish Cultural

Assets Committee by Bruun Ras mussen on behalf of the buyer,

now that the price is known. Should an export licence not be

granted, the Danish Cultural Assets Com mittee would be obliged

to acquire the purchased lot at the purchase price, and the buyer

would thus not be bound to the purchase.

§ 10. CATALOGUING

All lots are sold in the condition in which they are found when

knocked down and as described in the catalogue with subsequently

published changes and modifications. Cataloguing is

done according to the best of Bruun Rasmussen’s knowledge and

on the cataloguing principles stated.

The lots auctioned are often of some age or of a kind which

makes it possible that they may contain defects, deficiencies, or

may have been subject to restoration or damage not necessarily

stated in the catalogue. Catalogue pictures are for identification

only and cannot be used for an evaluation of the condition of

the goods.

Any person who wishes to bid at an auction should therefore satisfy

himself of the condition of the lots for which he intends

to bid by personal inspection at the preview held prior to the

auction. The catalogue description is an indication of the prevailing

oppinion of scholars and expert at the time of the printing

of the catalogue. If any doubts should arise after the purchase

regarding the genuineness of the purchased lot or its conformance

with the catalogue description, Bruun Rasmussen should

immedia te ly be informed thereof.

BRUUN RASMUSSEN BOOK AUCTION 808

Should the purchased lot be proved to be a forgery, or if the

ca talogue description contains material errors which lead to a

consi derably higher hammer price than that which a correct catalogue

description would presumably result in, the buyer shall be

entitled to cancel the purchase, after which the buyer shall be

reimbursed for the total purchase price paid plus buyer's premium

and VAT, when applicable.

For material errors in the catalogue description in respect to

measure ments or weight, compensation shall only be paid on a

percentage basis in proportion to the difference.

The right of cancellation of a purchase in pursuance of the

present conditions can only be exercised by the party who has

bought the lot in question at Bruun Rasmussen and shall be subject

to the presentation of a claim for cancellation in wri ting to

Bruun Rasmussen within 2 years of the purchase date and to the

purchased lot being returned to Bruun Rasmussen in the same

condition in any and all respects which the purchased lot was in

at the time of the lot being knocked down to the buyer.

In the event of cancellation the buyer shall not be entitled to

claim pay ment of interest on the purchase price nor shall the

buyer be entitled to claim compensation for any other ex pen ses

or loss incurred, including any possible loss of profit in connection

with reselling.

It shall not be possible to state cancellation of a purchase in pursuance

of the above provisions if:

a the catalogue description on the day the lot was knocked

down to the buyer was in accordance with the then generally

accepted opinion of scholars and experts;

b the only way of establishing whether the lot was a forgery

at the time of the publication of the catalogue was the

implementa tion of scientific processes, the validity of which

was only acknowledged after the time of publication of the

catalogue, or which would have required a disproportionate

amount of cost, or which would have been impossible to carry

out without damaging the lot in question.

In addition to the time-limits stated above, all purchases are

subject to the Statute of Limitations stipulated by Danish law by

which Bruun Rasmussen is under no circumstance liable for purchases

after 5 years from the date of purchase.

for complaints; complaints can only be based on the catalogue

text.

Hvad er det værd?

Poul Henningsen, bedre kendt under initialerne

PH, favnede bredt både som arkitekt, kulturkritiker,

revyforfatter og lysmager. I 1920’erne skabte han

PH-lampen, der med sin skærmkonstruktion revolutionerede

den moderne belysning og blev et ikon i

moderne dansk designhistorie. Denne bog fortæller

om Poul Henningsens vej til lysmageriet og giver et

indblik i, hvad PH’s lamper er værd.

Bogen koster 149 kr. og kan købes hos alle
