⁂ An argument against Nicholas Sander's De visibili monarchia, the divine establishment of papal monarchy.

Rev Thomas Baker (1656-1740), antiquary, of the county of Durham; rector of Long Newton which he resigned from motives of conscience in 1690; a fellow of St John's College, Cambridge from which he was ejected in 1717, for political contumacy. He retained a lively resentment of this and his other deprivations, and wrote in all his books, "socius ejectus", or "ejectus rector." He resided in college, as commoner, until his death in 1740.

Artist's Resale Rights (“Droit de Suite”)

Lots marked with a delta symbol (δ) are subject to the Artist's Resale Right Law.The buyer agrees to pay Bloomsbury Auctions an amount equal to the resale royalty and we will pay such amount to the artist's collecting agent. Resale royalty applies where the Hammer price is 1,000 Euros or more and the amount cannot be more than 12,500 Euros per lot. The amount is calculated as follows:

Royalty For the portion of the Hammer Price (in Euros)
4.00% up to 50,000
3.00% between 50,000.01 and 200,000
1.00% between 200,000.01 and 350,000
0.50% between 350,000.01 and 500,000
0.25% in excess of 500,000

Invoices will, as usual, be issued in Pounds Sterling. For the purposes of calculating the resale royalty the Pounds Sterling/ Euro rate of exchange will be the European Central Bank reference rate on the day of the sale.
