BURGESS. ~ Printed by McLean & Co., 70 St. Martin?s Lane, London and published by W.

At the outbreak of the Civil War in 1642, the town of Dover sided with Parliament, while the castle was garrisoned by Royalists. On the 20th of August that year, a party of townspeople led by a merchant, variously referred to as Drake, Dawes or Daux, surprised the tiny garrison of 20 and captured the castle, with hardly a shot fired. The Castle remained in Parliament?s hands until the restoration. The views are as follows: 1. The Old Entrance of Dover Castle. 2. Ancient Gateway and Guard Room. 3. Great Hall, Governor?s Apartment. 4. [Inner Walls] Drake and his Companions Surprising the Garrison on the Night of the 1st of August 1642. 5. Marshall Tower - Troops from Canterbury. 6. Old Road - Siege by the Royalists. 7. [North East Walls] North East Side. Albrincis, or Averanches Tower. 8. From the Ramparts - Retreat of the Royalists.

Chinese Journal Translated as ?TOUCHSTONE CHAMBER PICTORIAL?

Authors

Description
[Chinese Journal] Translated as ?TOUCHSTONE CHAMBER PICTORIAL?; an ILLUSTRATED News Review. c. 1880?s Shanghai, 8vo., 12 issues in original printed wrappers (various colours; pink, green, yellow, blue etc); each issue circa 16-24 pages profusely illustrated with steel engravings, mostly double page (80) rest single page (36) plus advertising; preented in wooden boards, ties; hence unusually good condition for such a fragile and ephemeral publica tion. £1200 A contemporary pencilled narrative in English (on the upper margins) explains the Chinese style imagery that document a range of subject matter from Mandarins at the Imperial Court to the tabloid scandals of Robbery, Suicide and Murder! Illustrated local matters include the Shanghai Fire Brigade in action; Canton Floods; an arrest at an Opium Den; and Exhibition in Hong Kong; Dragon Boat Festival; the establishment of a Railway, Shanghai, 1876; and ?American minister and the Admiral calling on the Viceroy of Nankin?. Perhaps the most interesting pictures concern Chinese concept and representation of foreign issues and events, for example: ?The Chinese idea of a French Torpedo Boat?; Foreign Divers; French Balloons; Bank failure in New York; Earthquake in England; ?French soldiers defeated by Chinese in Keelung, Formosa?; and ?Savages in America? attacking Chinese coolie labour?

Our shopsitter was perplexed at the time -a man came in and piled up what seemed a large and random collection of leather bound books - and asked for a special price on the lot which I was to give him the next day. He gave the name David Thomson, and an address and telephone numbers, all of which are believed to be false.

Last Voyage to St Kilda

Authors

Martin Martin

Description
One of a number of items lent to the Museum Nan Eilean based at Stornaway in October 2005 for their exhibition on St Kilda. End of July 2006 were taking down the exhibition it was noticed that one of the most valuable items had gone missing. This was a book titled 'Last Voyage to St Kilda,' written by Martin Martin and published in 1698. This is a rare first edition, leather-bound with beautiful sketches of rare sea birds within. Alth ough there are a few early prints of this book around very few have these illustrations and it is these which increase its value, possibly to over £1,000. The only distinguishing feature about this edition was that it had a catalogue number - STK/1/34 - written in pencil on the inside cover. This is significant to the NTS as it was part of a collection of books and archives given to us in 1957 by the 5th Marquis of Bute when he gave the Trust the islands. We do not have photographs of this item, but I'm fairly sure that with this reference number (even the best erasers would not eliminate all traces of it) make it fairly recognisable. We cannot tell when the item went missing or whether it was lost or stolen. It was reported to Stornaway police in the Northern Constabulary, reference number of NH/4469/6. I have also contacted the Stolen Arts and Antiquities Squad in the Metropolitan Police for inclusion on their register.

Inscription small lettering to top right hand corner, girl's name and the year '1903'. Easy to identify this copy as at least two of the 4pp gatherings had been reattached with some sort of tape. A strip of tape was clearly visible and about an inch wide the full height of at least two pages. The book was in the dark charcoal paper covered binding. Spine intact but slightly frayed at ends. The auctioneers are aware of the loss.
