For a period of five years from the date of this sale Century Guild warrants the authenticity of authorship of all lots contained in this catalogue as described in the text accompanying each lot. This warranty and guarantee is made only within the five year period and only to the original buyer of record who returns the purchased lot in the same condition as when sold to said buyer; and, it is established beyond doubt that the identification of authorship, as set forth in the description in this catalogue as may have been amended by any posted signs or oral declarations during the sale, is not correct based on a reasonable reading of the catalogue and the Conditions of Sale herein. Any dispute arising under the terms in this paragraph will be resolved pursuant to final and binding arbitration at the American Arbitration Association. Upon a finding by an Arbitrator in favor of buyer, the sale will be rescinded and the original purchase price, including the buyers premium, will be refunded.
