Condition Disclaimer
Under the Conditions of Sale applicable to the sale of the lot, buyers must satisfy themselves as to each and every aspect of the quality of the lot, including (without limitation) its authorship, attribution, condition, provenance, authenticity, age, suitability and origin. Lots are sold on an 'as is' basis but the actual condition of the lot may not be as good as indicated by its outward appearance. In particular parts may have been replaced or renewed and lots may not be authentic or of satisfactory quality.

Any statement in relation to the lot is merely an expression of opinion of the seller or Lyon & Turnbull and should not be relied upon as an inducement to bid on the lot.

Our condition report has not been prepared by a professional conservator, restorer or engineer.

Notes: Note: Jessie King illustrated an edition of Oscar Wilde's 'A House of Pomegranates' for Methuen in 1915. First published in 1891, 'A House for Pomegranates' was a collection of fairy stories written to follow 'The Happy Prince and Other Tales', published in 1888. King's illustrations signify a stylistic departure for the artist, whose previous work has been more tonally subdued in previous work.
