IMPORTANT NOTICES

Please see Conditions of Business and Conditions of Sale at the back of this catalogue

Bloomsbury Auctions is a trading name of Greenfield Auctions Limited. Greenfield Auctions Limited is registered in England,

company number: 07546217, registered office: 10A Mount Ephraim, Tunbridge Wells, kent TN4 8AS.

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

If, on collation, any NAMED items in this catalogue prove defective, in

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.

Storage Charges

Purchasers are advised that a storage charge of £1.00 per lot per day

may be levied on all purchases not cleared within five working days of

the sale.

Commission Bids

Bloomsbury will execute bids on your behalf if you are unable to attend

the sale. Commission or absentee bids are accepted either directly

at reception, or can be sent by post, fax, email, telephone or via the

website: www.bloomsburyauctions.com. Bloomsbury will add these

bids to the auctioneers’ sale book and will undertake to purchase the

lots on your behalf as cheaply as allowed by other bids and reserves.

Bloomsbury does not accept liability for failing to execute commission

bids, or for any errors or omissions.

Shipping

Bloomsbury Auctions can accommodate shipping for certain items,

please contact our Cashiers Department for more information.

International Buyers are responsible for all import/export duties and

taxes. An invoice stating the actual purchase price will accompany all

international purchases.

export Licences

A licence from the Museums, Libraries & Archives Council will be

required before items of certain kinds may be exported from the United

kingdom. Any item containing ivory will require a CITES licence before it

can be exported from the EU.

Payment

Payment will be accepted, if you are a successful bidder, by debit card

issued by a Uk bank, in cash up to £12,000 (subject to relevant money

laundering regulations), by bank transfer direct into our bank account,

Bank Details: Natwest, 214 High Holborn, London WC1V 7BX. Account

Name: Bloomsbury Auctions Clients Limited. A/C: 26702975 Sort Code:

60-30-06 BIC: NWBk GB 2L IBAN: GB82 NWBk 6030 0626702975 or by all

major Uk issued credit cards registered to a Uk billing address with the

exception of American Express and Diners Club. A surcharge of 3% is

payable on all payments made by credit card. This surcharge does not

apply to debit card payments. Payment may also be made by Sterling

personal cheques drawn on a Uk bank account but Bloomsbury regrets

that purchases paid for by this method cannot be collected until your

cheque has cleared.

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

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

Resale Right Law.The buyer agrees to pay Bloomsbury Auctions an

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

Invoices will, as usual, be issued in Pounds Sterling. For the purposes of

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

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 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.

valuations

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.

Mark Tiddeman’s chart for Seller’s ‘The English Pilot,

The Fourth Book’, north oriented to the right, title panel

upper right, emblematic buildings, compass rose and

rhum lines, engraved map with hand-colouring, 460 x

560mm., slight wear on old folds, loss of c.2mm and

c.5mm to left and right side, respectively, supplied in pen

facsimile, with a few attendant repaired tears, mounted

at sheet edges onto card support, Dublin, ‘at the two

Bibles in Essex Street’, c.1749. £1,500 - £2,000

*** An extremely scarce copy of this rather inaccurate

chart of New York harbour from Sandy Hook to

Westchester, showing Staten Island and a large part of

Long Island. Tiddeman’s original map was first published

by Mount & Page for Seller’s English Pilot in 1737. The

Dublin publisher George Grierson (d.1753) is well known

for his pirated copies, mostly of Moll maps but also of

those by Mount & Page, the relative scarcity of which

makes them much more sought-after than the originals

from which they were re-engraved. Grierson published his

pirated edition of The Fourth Book of The English Pilot,

covering the coasts of North America and the West Indies,

in 1749. It is perhaps worthy of note that, according to

Tooley, the first issue of Tiddeman’s map did not credit

him as cartographer, where the later issue of 1753, after

Grierson’s also uncredited edition appeared, did carry his

name, perhaps to identify and reclaim it.

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.

COnDiTiOnS OF SALe

Bloomsbury Auctions carries on business with bidders, buyers and all

those present in the auction room prior to or in connection with a

conditions and notices as may be referred to herein.

1. Definitions.

In these Conditions:

(a) “auctioneer” means the firm of Bloomsbury Auctions or its

authorised auctioneer, as appropriate;

(b) “deliberate forgery” means an imitation made with the intention

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;

(d) “terms of consignment” means the stipulated terms and rates of

commission on which Dreweatts accepts instructions from sellers or

their agents;

(e) “total amount due” means the hammer price in respect of the lot

sold together with any premium, Value Added Tax chargeable and

any additional charges payable by a defaulting buyer under these

Conditions;

(f ) “sale proceeds” means the net amount due to the seller, being the

hammer price of the lot sold less commission at the stated rate, Value

Added Tax chargeable and any other amounts due to us by the seller

in whatever capacity and however arising;

(g) “You”, “Your”, etc. refer to the buyer as identified in Condition 2.

(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.

3. increments.

Bidding increments shall be at the auctioneer’s sole discretion.

4. The purchase price.

together with a premium thereon of 26.4% which shall include VAT

on the premiumat the rate imposed by law.The buyer will also be

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.
