Terms & Conditions
CONDITIONS OF SALE
The highest bidder shall be The Purchaser, subject to the right of the Vendor to bid and the right of the Auctioneers to reject any bidding. If any dispute arises between two or more bidders, such dispute shall be finally settled by the Auctioneers, or at their discretion the Lot may be resold.
The Auctioneers have the full power to withdraw or alter any lot or lots he may think proper. The bidding will be regulated by the Auctioneers. No bidding shall be retracted.
The Auctioneers act as agents only. Each lot, as set out in the Catalogue or as divided or joined with any Lot or Lots at the Sale at the sole discretion of the Auctioneers, is sold with all faults, imperfections and errors of descriptions, and neither the Vendors nor the Auctioneers are responsible for the authenticity, attribution, genuiness, origin, authorship, date, age, period, condition of quality of any lot. All statements whether made orally or contained in any catalogue, advertising matter, or made in any manner as to any such matters, are statements of opinion and are not to be taken as or implying, statements or representation of fact. Purchasers are deemed to have satisfied themselves by inspection or otherwise, as to all such matters and as to the physical description of any lot. Neither the Vendor or the Auctioneer make or give, nor has any person in the employ of the Auctioneers or Vendors any authority to make or give a representation or warranty, and in any event, neither the Vendor nor the Auctioneers are responsible for any statement howsoever made or expressed.
Until sold, each Lot shall be at the Vendor's risk. On the fall of the hammer, such risk shall devolve upon the Purchaser. The Purchaser of each Lot shall immediately give the Auctioneer his or her full name and address and, if required, pay the purchase money of such Lot otherwise at the conclusion of the day's sale. The Auctioneers on behalf of themselves and the Vendor shall have a lien on each Lot for the purchase money thereof until actual payment. Notwithstanding such lien and the right of possession aforesaid, the Auctioneers will not undertake any risk as regards any Lot, not liability whatever, as to preservation or delivery thereof.
Upon failure of complying with the above condition, the Auctioneers shall be at liberty to re-sell the Lot or Lots, whether by Public Auction or Private Sale on the premises or elsewhere and the deficiency, if any, together with all charges attending the same, shall be made good by the defaulter at this sale who shall have no claim to any surplus that may arise from each second sale.
Returns: It is the responsibility of the purchaser to ascertain the authenticity and condition of any lot prior to sale. Lots may only be returned by consent of the Auctioneers, and this consent will only be considered if the purchaser states reasons for default in writing within 10 days of the sale in the case of UK purchasers and 14 days in the case of overseas purchasers.
This right of return does not apply however to collections of ephemera, nor to items which are not named in the catalogue, stains, foxing, marginal wormholes nor other defects not affecting the completeness of the text NOR in respect of defects specifically mentioned in the catalogue entry at time of sale, nor in respect of lots sold for less than the £100 hammer price.
