Lyon & Turnbull

Fondée à Edimbourg en 1826, Lyon & Turnbull sont la plus ancienne maison de ventes de l'Ecosse. Lyon & Turnbull sont maintenant de plus en identifiées sur la scène internationale, atteignant des prix records du monde pour des peintures britanniques et continentales, ainsi que des résultats exceptionnels dans d'autres domaines, tels que des bijoux, de l'argenterie, des meubles, de la céramique, des livres et des arts décoratifs. Cela a été facilité par leur alliance de marketing en l’an 2000 avec Freeman’s, la plus ancienne maison de vente aux enchères de l'Amérique. Les deux entreprises s'efforcent d'utiliser les dernières techniques de marketing et de partager notre expertise pour étendre notre portée. Cela est démontré notamment par le biais de notre coopération dans la vente des œuvres d'art dans les lieux les plus avantageux, conduisant à des prix exceptionnels.

En réponse à la croissance des affaires provenant du sud de l'Angleterre, l’année 2006 a vu l'ouverture du London Gallery dans le Pall Mall, qui organise des expositions et des événements réguliers ainsi que des pré-visites des éléments sélectionnés des ventes aux enchères à venir. S'appuyant sur cette présence, le mois de janvier 2008 a vu notre première vente à Londres, où la Deloitte Art Collection a été vendue aux enchères au Royal Academy of Arts. En raison de l'augmentation du volume des affaires de l'ouest de l'Écosse, l’année 2008 a également vu le déménagement du bureau de Glasgow à une galerie plus grande et plus importante sur Bath Street, centre traditionnel de l'art et des antiquités de la ville.

SCOTT

SCOTT, SIR WALTER, & IRISH FAMINE AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED, apologising for not replying sooner to the Committee of Ladies for relief of the Irish peasantry "he has it not in his power to be useful to them on the present occasion. Upon the first breaking out of the general distress in Ireland as much was done in the behalf of the sufferers in Scotland as could be expected in a country at present suffering greatly from unpaid rent, and a general depreciation of agricultural produce. It appears to Sir Walter Scott that although sudden and immediate distress wherever it occurs ought to be the subject of general sympathy & benevolence yet when that distress is protracted it becomes the duty of the local government where it occurs to provide in a permanent manner against so unfortunate an evil since moreover that evil must become progressive & universal. Sir Walter Scott without knowing much of the state of Ireland otherwise than from what is found in everyones observation cannot but apprehend that that fine Kingdom is in a situation where the combined & continued efforts of the legislature and Landholder can alone offer any effectual relief to the suffering peasantry, & that their condition may perhaps rather increase those relieved by the precious donations afforded by the sympathy of the sister countries.", Castle Street, Edinburgh, 25 August -, 2 pp, 4to, integral blank Estimate £800-1,000 + fees Note: A very interesting letter reflecting Scott's views on where private charitable duty should give way to governmental responsibility.

BLUMNAU

BLUMNAU, GEORG DISSERTATIO DE VACUO qua, experientiis, & rationibus physicis, vacuum in natura non dari, probatur. Vilnius: Typis. Acad. Societatis Iesu, 1648. 12mo., with 11 engraved plates of experimental apparatus, contemporary vellum, paper generally a little discoloured throughout, fore-edge of title page and first couple of leaves frayed, inner joints cracking, lacking the preliminary leaf *6 (possibly a blank), with the book plate of John Bury Estimate £500-800 + fees Note: We have been unable to trace this book in the Lithuanian National Bibliography, the Polish National Library, the University of Vilnius Library, the Jagiellonian University Library, the Bibliografia Esteichera or the USTC. The only reference we have been able to trace to is in the Bibliotheca Stoschiana sive Catalogus selectissimorum librorum quos collegerat Philippus Liber Baro de Stosch, Florence, 1759, where it appears as item no 2052. Information about the author appears equally elusive. He is described on the title page as an alumnus of the Jesuit Academy of Vilnius, a Master of Arts and Philosophy, and of Theology. He may be the same Georgius Blumnau, doctor in theology and pastor at Mehlsack (fl. 1649-71) in Zeitschrift für die Geschichte und Altertumskunde Ermlands, vol. 15, p.422, but there is no reference to any of his writings. (We are grateful to Dr Sara Trevisan for kindly identifying this.) Interest in whether Nature truly abhorred a vacuum had been growing in the 17th century following experiments performed in 1640 by Gasparo Berti and by Evangelista Torricelli, a professor in Florence in 1644. Torricelli's experiment, using tubes filed with mercury and immersed in a mercury reservoir, was the first successful attempt to produce a vacuum and subsequently convinced the scientific community. Berti's earlier attempt using water was less successful. Pascal repeated the experiment and, in addition, tried other types of liquid. He found that the maximum height was exactly inversely proportional to the used liquid's density. Despite these experiments the discussion between those who maintained no vacuum is possible (plenists) and those who believed that a vacuum was possible (vacuists) continued until Otto von Guericke of Magdeburg's famous demonstration of 1657 using two hemispheres with a diameter of 40 cm, known as the Magdeburg hemispheres which two teams of eight horses on either side were just barely able to separate after the enclosed volume had been evacuated. (K. Jousten, The history of vacuum science and vacuum technology, pp. 2-6). Blumnau's volume describes various experiments and provides illustrations of the apparatus employed, by which, as he puts it "most learned men in Italy France had dared to doubt." His work, such as two others published by the Jesuit Academy at Vilnius, Albert Wijuk Kojalowicz's Oculus ratione correctus, sux refutatio demonstrations ocularis de Vacuo and Oswald Krüger's Dissertatio de vacuo, both also published in 1648, were in response to the first publication of Torricelli's mercury experiment by the Polish Capuchin Friar Valeriano Magni in 1647 and which he claimed as his own. The Jesuit responses to the vacuum experiment were without exception attacks ad hominem on Magni and the Jesuits' role in the void debate was preoccupied by the Torricellian experiment. Magni's interpretation of the experiment was radically anti-Aristotelian. For an account of the confrontation between Aristotelianism which the Jesuits were obliged to teach and the new sciences emerging in the 17th century see M.J. Gorman, "Jesuit explorations of the Torricellian space : carp-bladders and sulphurous fumes" in Mélanges de l'Ecole française de Rome. Italie et Méditerranée, tome 106, n°1. 1994, pp. 7-32.
