1. The term "Auctioneer" means Pridham's Auction House.
2. Each lot is sold "AS IS" and "WHERE IS".

Additionally, under the Conditions of Sale applicable to the sale of any lot, buyers must satisfy themselves as to each and every aspect of the quality of the lot, including and 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 a lot is merely an expression of opinion of the seller or Pridham's, and should not be relied upon as an inducement to bid on the lot. Lots are available for inspection prior to the sale and you are strongly advised to examine any lot in which you are interested prior to the sale. The condition reports have not been prepared by a professional conservator or engineer.
4. Pridham's does its very best to point out condition issues. You have to examine each piece carefully or ask for a condition report; sales will not be set aside on grounds of condition, or of real or imagined misdescription.
5. No books in this sale have been collated, please examine carefully before bidding or request a condition report.
6. Descriptions provided in both printed and in online catalog formats do not always include condition reports.
