    The following glossary describes the terminology used in the cataloguedescription for each lot.

NoConsignor or Gallerymake anywarrantiesor representations with respect to any lot. Buyers are advised to contact thephotographs department for any additional information they may require.

    Name ofArtistBloomsbury Auctions warrants the authorship described in the Bold Typeheadings of each lot description. Where an artists name and dates are sodescribed then that lot, in our best judgement, is by the artist. Every attemptis made to ensure the accuracy of the subsequent catalogue description, butthe descriptive information is not encompassed within in our LimitedWarranty. Where a lot is attributed to an artist then it is our opinion that thework may be by that artist but cannot be definitively determined to be so.
