Should any dispute arise between bidders, or between the auctioneers and any bidder, the lot in dispute shall be put up again and resold or not AT THE DISCRETION OF THE AUCTIONEER, who shall be the sole arbitrator. The advance in the bidding will be regulated by the Auctioneer and no bidding shall be retracted. Vendors reserve the right to bid by themselves, by their Agents, or by the Auctioneer.

2. The Auctioneers reserve the right to withdraw any lots from the Sale or to divide any lot or lots, or to place two or more lots together, or to alter the order of the lots; previously to or at the time of the Sale should they deem any or either of these courses advisable.

3. 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 description, and neither the vendor nor the auctioneers are responsible for the authenticity, attribution, genuineness, origin, authorship, date, age, period, condition or quality of any lot. All statements in the catalogue as to any such matters are statements of opinion, and are not, nor are to be taken as or as 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 nor the Auctioneers make or give, nor has any person in the employment of the auctioneers any authority to make or give any representation or warranty, and in any event neither the vendor nor the Auctioneers are responsible for any representation or warranty for any statement in the catalogues.

4. Each and every lot shall, at the fall of the hammer, be considered as delivered to the Purchaser, who must thereafter take all risk and responsibility.

6. All the lots are to be paid for and taken away at the buyer’s expense and risk, by Monday following the sale, before 4pm. In cases where the buyer purchases more than one lot the whole of the amount of the lots purchased is to be paid before any one lot is delivered.

Lots will NOT be transferred from one purchaser’s ticket to another.
