Limited Warranty immediately following constitute the complete and exclusive statement of the terms and con-

of Sale.

1. Dorothy Sloan—Rare Books reserves the right to withdraw any lot before or at the sale.

2. BUYING AT AUCTION. The highest bidder acknowledged by the auctioneer shall be the buyer. The auc-

tioneer has the right to reject any bid and, in the event of any dispute between bidders, to determine the suc-

cessful bidder, to continue the bidding, or to re-o

V

er and resell the lot in question. In the event of any dispute

after the sale, the

W

nal record of sale of Dorothy Sloan—Rare Books shall be conclusive.

3. Title to the o

V

ered lot shall pass to the buyer upon the fall of the auctioneer’s hammer and announcement by

the auctioneer that the lot has been sold, subject to compliance by the buyer with all other Conditions of Sale.

The buyer shall forthwith assume full risk and responsibility for the lot and shall pay the full purchase price or

such part thereof as Dorothy Sloan–Rare Books in its sole discretion, shall require. In addition, the buyer may

be required to sign a con

W

rmation of purchase.

4. BUYER’S PREMIUM. A 15% premium will be charged in addition to the hammer price. The “purchase

price” is the sum of the hammer price and this premium.

5. SALES TAX.

Unless exempted by law, the buyer is required to pay any applicable state and local tax on the

purchase price. Exemption certi

W

cates must be on

W

le to waive this tax.

6. REGISTRATION. ALL bidders must submit a Bidder Registration Form. A Bidder Registration Form is

available in this catalogue or on our web site: http://www.sloanrarebooks.com. Bidders will be asked to supply

a bank reference or other acceptable references when they register. Bidders who attend the sale will receive num-

absentee bids, or telephone bids as described below.

Only bids believed to be from bona

7. ABSENTEE BIDS. Absentee bidders should submit written instructions using the absentee bid sheet provid-

ed (a photocopy is acceptable). Unlimited or “buy” bids will not be accepted. Please bid a speci

W

c dollar amount.

Dorothy Sloan–Rare Books will diligently attempt to follow any and all bid instructions, executing the absentee

bid at the lowest possible price, but accepts no responsibility for failure to correctly execute such bids. Absentee

bids will be executed only according to valid bidding increments. If identical bids are received from two or more

W

Dorothy Sloan–Rare Books reserves the right to decline to

undertake any such bids. All
