The inscription below the engraving reads ‘If the Post has not yet been

obtained he (Sir Thomas Raffles) is to desist from any further attempt to

establish one, Governor-General to Col. Bannerman, Governor of Penang,

February 20. 1819’. Ignoring this order, Raffles raised the British flag in

Singapore nine days later. His argument being that Singapore was in a

strategically important position and he did not want to allow an occupation

by the Dutch. It is strange that this large print has no attribution to an artist

or an engraver. Many of these engravings were taken from sketches

produced by military and naval officers posted to these far flung corners of

the empire; however the quality of both the image and the engraving points

to a professional artist. The panorama is found in Lady Sophia Raffles ‘Memoir

of.... Sir Thomas Stanford Raffles’, of 1830 - Abbey Travel no. 555 - and

although the panorama is unsigned, a prospectus announcing the publication

of Raffles’s ‘History of Java’ mentions that William Daniell would be the

principal engraver of this work. The quality of the engraving would suggest

that this is a very reasonable deduction.

We are sure that Your Lordship senses the depth of Our

appreciation for your leadership and contributions. Its depth should

be apparent to all who perceive that this memorial to Our beloved

refuge, have, to this day and in this way, sealed imperishable bonds

of friendship and sympathy’, clearly signed in blue ink, printed blue

394 Chivers vellucent binding. The Book of Common Prayer...,

by Alice Shepherd for Cedric Chivers of Bath, with Shepherd’s

monogram on upper cover, and signed ‘Cedric Chivers, Bath’ on rear

foliage incorporating the title, v. sl. splitting at spine ends, upper

cover with border of tulip and foliage design repeated, incorporating

a dove on a seme dot ground in the lower margin, enclosing a

pictorial panel of Christ exhorting Peter to ‘feed my sheep’, lettered

below ‘pasce oves meas’, lower cover with pale green coloured

panel, gilt fillets on turn-ins, large 8vo

Alice Shepherd was trained by Mary Ann Bassett, and worked with her for a

time, but she is best known for her work for Cedric Chivers. She began

working at Chivers’ Bath bindery in 1897, where she was in charge of a special

department of about five women doing cut and modelled calf work, designing

and illuminating, and colouring vellum. Alice Shepherd is renowned for her

cut and embossed leather work, but she also produced designs for gold

tooling and for paintings used in vellucent panels, as here. Chivers showed a

number of her bindings at his Library Bureau, 10 Bloombury Street, London,

in 1897, and many were illustrated in the brochure he issued. Her work also

appears in Chivers’ ‘Books in Beautiful Bindings’, an illustrated catalogue of

ninety-nine modelled, vellucent, and gold-tooled bindings. The fact that some

of the bindings Alice Shepherd did for Chivers bear her signature or

monogram is a measure of the high regard in which she was held. Her

designs, according to Chivers, were never repeated. (Marianne Tidcombe,

together with two letters loosely inserted, one from Lilian Lindsay

to a Mr. Evans, on British Dental Association headed notepaper,

dated 18.12.34, which concerns a journal paper written by Mr. Evans

- ‘you have assembled your facts well & your descriptions are good’,

single leaf, written on both sides, folded once, and the other from

Dr. S. Prakash to Mr. Evans, written from Rangoon and dated 15th

Jan. 1934, in which Dr. Prakash asks advice about a patient of Evans’

he is treating who has a fixed orthodontic appliance in her mouth,

saying it ‘was put there by you with the help of Miss Smythe and

was intended to move the left upper canine backwards and

outwards into the space created by the extraction of 1st premolar’,

adding that the tooth did not appear to be moving, which Prakash

concludes ‘is due to the fact that she is about 19 or 20 - too old to

move the tooth’, before going on to describe the practise of

dentistry in Rangoon - ‘There is no registration of dentists here and

so crowds of mechanics are practising the profession, majority of

these people being Japanese. Among such quacks there is also a

Frenchman who makes money by mere bluffing’, single leaf, written

on both sides, folded twice

Lilian Lindsay’s own copy of a scarce book. Lindsay was the first woman to

qualify in dentistry in Britain, graduating in 1895 against many odds and much

prejudice. She subsequently held many important positions, including

honorary librarian of the British Dental Association, President of the

Odontological Section and History of Medicine Section of the Royal Society

of Medicine, President of the British Society for the Study of Orthodontics,

and sub-editor of the British Dental Journal, in which she published 57 papers

between 1925 and 1959. In 1933 she published her book on the history of

dentistry. In 1946 Lindsay became the first female President of the British

Dental Association, and was awarded an honorary doctorate by the University

of Edinburgh, as well as the CBE. In the same year she published her

translation of Fauchard’s ‘Le Chirurgien Dentiste’, the first time this landmark

work had been translated into English.

1. The Seller warrants to the Auctioneer and the buyer that he is the true owner or

is properly authorised to sell the property by the true owner and is able to

transfer good and marketable title to the property free from any third party claims.

2. (a) The highest bidder to be the buyer. If during the auction the Auctioneer

considers that a dispute has arisen he has absolute authority to settle

it or re-offer the lot. The Auctioneer may at his sole discretion determine

the advance of bidding or refuse a bid, divide any lot, combine any two

or more lots or withdraw any lot without prior notice.

(b) Where goods are bought at auction by a buyer who has entered into

an agreement with another or others that the other or others (or some

of them) shall abstain from bidding for the goods and the buyer or other

party or one of the other parties is a dealer (as defined in the Auction

Biddings Agreement Act 1927) the buyer warrants that the goods are

bought bona fide on joint account.

3. The buyer shall pay the price at which a lot is knocked down by the

Auctioneer to the buyer (“the hammer price”) together with a premium of

19.5% of the hammer price. Where the lot is marked by an asterisk the

premium will be subject to VAT at 23.40% which under the Auctioneer’s

Margin Scheme will form part of the buyer’s premium on our invoice and

will not be separately identified (the premium added to the hammer price

will hereafter collectively be referred to as “the total sum due”). By making

any bid the buyer acknowledges that his attention has been drawn to the

fact that on the sale of any lot the Auctioneer will receive from the seller

commission at its usual rates in addition to the said premium of 19.5% and

assents to the Auctioneer receiving the said commission.

4. (a) The buyer shall forthwith upon the purchase give in his name and

permanent address and pay to the Auctioneer immediately after the

conclusion of the auction the total sum due.

(b) The buyer may be required to pay down during the course of the sale

the whole or any part of the total sum due, and if he fails to do so after

such request the lot or lots may at the Auctioneer's absolute discretion

be put up again and resold immediately.

(c) The buyer shall at his own expense take away any lot or lots purchased

no later than five working days after the auction day.

(d) The Auctioneer may at his own discretion agree credit terms with a

buyer and extend the time limits for collection in special cases but

otherwise payment shall be deemed to have been made only after the

Auctioneer has received cash or a sterling banker’s draft or the buyer's

cheque has been cleared.

5. (a) If the buyer fails to pay for or take away any lot or lots pursuant to

clause 4 or breaches any other condition of that clause the Auctioneer

as agent for the seller shall be entitled after consultation with the seller

to exercise one or other of the following rights:

(i) Rescind the sale of that or any other lots sold to the buyer who defaults

and re-sell the lot or lots whereupon the defaulting buyer shall pay to

the Auctioneer any shortfall between the proceeds of that sale after

deduction of costs of re-sale and the total sum due. Any surplus shall

belong to the seller.

(ii) Proceed for damages for breach of contract.

(b) Without prejudice to the Auctioneer's rights hereunder if any lots or

lots are not collected within five days or such longer period as the

Auctioneer may have agreed otherwise, the Auctioneer may charge the

buyer a storage charge of £1.00 + VAT at the current rate per lot per day.

(c) Ownership of the lot purchased shall not pass to the buyer until he has

paid to the Auctioneer the total sum due.

6. (a) The seller shall be entitled to place a reserve on any lot and the

Auctioneer shall have the right to bid on behalf of the seller for any lot

on which a reserve has been placed. A seller may not bid on any lot on

which a reserve has been placed.

(b) Where any lot fails to sell, the Auctioneer shall notify the seller

accordingly. The seller shall make arrangements either to re-offer the

lot for sale or to collect the lot and may be asked to pay a commission

not exceeding 50% of the selling commission and any special expenses

incurred in cataloguing the lot.

(c) If such arrangements are not made within seven days of the notification

the Auctioneer is empowered to sell the lot by auction or by private

treaty at not less than the reserve price and to receive from the seller

the normal selling commission and special expenses.

Conditions of Sale and Business


7. Any representation or statement by the Auctioneer in any catalogue,

brochure or advertisement of forthcoming sales as to authorship, attribution,

genuineness, origin, date, age, provenance, condition or estimated selling

price is a statement of opinion only. Every person interested should

exercise and rely on his own judgement as to such matters and neither the

Auctioneer nor his servants or agents are responsible for the correctness

of such opinions. No warranty whatsoever is given by the Auctioneer or

the seller in respect of any lot and any express or implied warranties are

hereby excluded.

8. (a) Notwithstanding any other terms of these conditions, if within fourteen

days of the sale the Auctioneer has received from the buyer of any lot

notice in writing that in his view the lot is a deliberate forgery and within

fourteen days after such notification the buyer returns the same to the

Auctioneer in the same condition as at the time of the sale and

satisfies the Auctioneer that considered in the light of the entry in the

catalogue the lot is a deliberate forgery then the sale of the lot will be

rescinded and the purchase price of the same refunded. "A deliberate

forgery" means a lot made with intention to deceive.

(b) A buyer's claim under this condition shall be limited to any amount paid

to the Auctioneer for the lot and for the purpose of this condition the

buyer shall be the person to whom the original invoice was made out

by the Auctioneer.

9. Lots may be removed during the sale after full settlement in accordance

with 4(d) hereof.

10. All goods delivered to the Auctioneer's premises will be deemed to be

delivered for sale by auction unless otherwise stated in writing and will

be catalogued and sold at the Auctioneer's discretion and accepted by

the Auctioneer subject to all these conditions. In the case of miscellaneous

books, the Auctioneer reserves the right to extract and dispose of

books that, in the opinion of the Auctioneer at his absolute discretion,

have no saleable value and, therefore, might detract from the saleability

of the rest of the lot and the Auctioneer shall incur no liability to the seller,

in respect of the books disposed of. By delivering the goods to the Auctioneer


inclusion in his auction sales each seller acknowledges that he/she

accepts and agrees to all the conditions.

11. (a) Unless otherwise instructed in writing all goods on the Auctioneer's

premises and in their custody will be held insured against the risks of

fire, burglary, water damage and accidental breakage or damage.

The value of the goods so covered will be the hammer price, or in the

case of unsold lots the best bid, or in the case of loss or damage prior

to the sale that which the specialised staff of the Auctioneer shall in

their absolute discretion estimate to be the auction value of such goods.

(b) The Auctioneer shall not be responsible for damage to or the loss, theft,

or destruction of any goods not so insured because of the owner’s

written instructions.

12. The Auctioneer shall remit the proceeds of the sale to the seller thirty

days after the day of the auction provided that the Auctioneer has received

the total sum due from the buyer. In all other cases the Auctioneer will

remit the proceeds of the sale to the seller within seven days of the

receipt by the Auctioneer of the total sum due. The Auctioneer will not be

deemed to have received the total sum due until after any cheque

delivered by the buyer has been cleared. In the event of the Auctioneer

exercising his right to rescind the sale his obligation to the seller

hereunder lapses.

13. In the case of the seller withdrawing instructions to the Auctioneer to sell

any lot or lots, the Auctioneer may charge a fee of 12.5% of the Auctioneer's

middle estimate of the auction price of the lot withdrawn together with

Value Added Tax thereon and any expenses incurred in respect of the lot

or lots.

14. The Auctioneer’s current standard notices and information (i.e. Collation

and Amendments) will apply to any contract with the Auctioneer as if

incorporated herein.

15. These conditions shall be governed by and construed in accordance with

English Law.
