Review Entries for Day Thursday, February 21, 2013

You may remember me writing last week about the interesting collection of Samuel Taylor Coleridge lots that we were including in the Antiquarian Book Auction on 20th March 2013 at our Dowell Street Saleroom in Honiton, Devon. Well yesterday, they went under the hammer.

 

The star of the show was the Samuel Taylor Coleridge family bible (BK9/131), which as I suspected, after being fiercly contested achieved a final hammer price of £5,500.

The second lot in the Samuel Taylor Coleridge collection to really fly and exceed all expectations was a collection of papers, letters, a notebook, etc, from William Hart Coleridge (1789-1849) (nephew of Samuel Taylor Coleridge) and the Bishop of Barbados (BK9/380). The lot included a silhouette of him and his notebook of 221 inscribed pages, primarily concerned with his life in the West Indies.

 

 

 

 

WH Coleridge (nephew of Samuel Taylor Coleridge letters and notebooks

 

The last entry in this notebook was dated Oct 22nd 1825. This was an important collection, as in addition to the official documents and letters, there are many personal items, supplemented with his notebook and this collection could form the basis of a biography of WH Coleridge. The hammer price for this interesting and unique lot was £3,200.

Steffi: Thanks! :D Yeah I don't know why you can't click on them, I'll try to re-upload them when I get back to Oakville (I'm at home in Montreal for the week). I glad to hear you're doing good, "very cartoony" sounds pretty fun!Dave: I didn't know you had a blog! I'll have to spend a good hour drooling over your paintings, they look incredible. I'll send you the next version of my reel very shortly, and with an English version too!Steve: Thanks, glad you like 'em! I think good paper makes the most difference when you're doing an actual layered/detailed painting. Cheap stuff is fine for sketches, but it degrades the second you try to do anything remotely fancy on it. I really like to work through many layers over long periods of time and do wet on wet, and for that Arches coldpress is the only way for me :)Mitch: Thanks! They took maybe 1:30/2:00 hours each, pretty quick actually. I did some tonal studies with pencil beforehand though, so maybe it's more like 2-3 hours each. I might do my BGs in watercolor, but I'll have to make some tests beforehand. Sometimes photoshop is just a more efficient medium.

Love this book! It has made gift decisions so much easier for a while too! I was hoping to clarify a few things. I am allergic to eugonol, iseugonol and found a few sections which referred to eugonol properties in smoked fish. &#8216; imparted to food by the smoking process&#8217;. Does this mean the fish releases the compound eugonol when smoked or that eugonol is being added via clove extract to the smoking process. Holy basil?.. Does this contain eugonol or does it just taste like it. You also say it occurs naturally in tomatoes and ripening bananas. I have been told to avoid all eugonol foods but I can&#8217;t pin down exactly what food I need to avoid. Many of the foods you mention are not on other eugonol lists. I hear so many contradictory things. Can it be grouped do you think to a decisive list ? Can you recccomend any books which may help me research this? Internet info is very limited. Any guidance very much appeciated&#8230;.and..Again thank you for the fabulous book on my kitchen shelf.

If I could tell all photographers with a store front location that a storefront is a waste of time, I would but they are usually still in their dream and it wouldn&#8217;t be right.I have always had my base in our home and after 48 years, everything is still &#8220;cool&#8221;.Low overhead-bigger savings for you. If the economy turns bad, you are always in business because you live there unless you are homeless. Storefront owners must pay too much rent,utilities and other things like a staff and then go home at the end of the day and make another payment for rent or mortgage payment,utilities again and food.You have to charge a Charles Lewis type fee just to break even. Now with the digital world,everyone is a Pro. I lost many portraits to brother and sister acts and other family members. With all camera&#8217;s being auto-focus,Stevie Wonder could do a portrait. I have many medical issues but you are welcome to stop over to chat. By the way, your work is fantastically beautiful.Bob

Carlyn,As the article notes, about 20 of the chains were produced, and this one was apparently made specifically for Montagu in about 1546. But in answer to your question, More surrendered his chain of office when he resigned as Lord Chancellor in 1532. His chain would have been returned to the treasury and placed in the Jewel Tower at Westminster. It may have been re-used intact, broken up and the pieces re-used in other chains (possibly even Montagu&#8217;s chain), or it may have been melted down for its gold content. We just do not know, and there is no real way to determine.More&#8217;s chain, however, was made up entirely of S&#8217;s, without the intermingled tassled double knots. And the Tudor Rose appeared on More&#8217;s chain as a pendant, not as a link of the chain itself. More&#8217;s version of a chain of office can be seen in the famous Holbein portrait of him, and also in copies of the now-lost More family portrait by Holbein (the original was destroyed in a fire, but several early copies still exist).
