Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: A Boneshaker or Velocipede, circa 1869-70, the bicycle with red and black wooden spoked wheels, no maker's marks, 120cm (47 in.) high to the wooden handles Suggestions of Bedfordshire makers have been made for this bicycle such as the Ivel and Brown and Green but cannot be conclusive without a maker's mark. This leaves the possibility that it was made by the local blacksmith h:122 w:175 cm Other Notes: Sir Albert Richardson and his love of cycling: Sir Albert was given his first model, an early safety bicycle, by his father. He was fascinated by its design and speed and tried many different designs of bicycle as and when they were patented for the public, including the Townend solid tyred safety bicycle, the spring-frame cycle and the Crypto with a forty-eight inch front wheel. It was considered a rather glamorous and racy way to travel at the time and Sir Albert enjoyed the freedom and solitude that it brought him. As an architectural student he joined a number of clubs, including the North London Cycling Club which included members of the famous North Road Club. The competitive side of the North London Club was predominantly endurance tests and reliability trials rather than open races - on occasion he acted as a scout for big races, warning competitors of the whereabouts of the police, who waited in ambush to catch speeding cyclists. He was keen to break records in the solitude of the open road, reaching speeds of over 18 miles per hour, comparatively rapid for the times. Sir Albert often stopped to sketch on his journeys, a good practice for the scale drawings which he was required to make during his training as an architect. Through the sport he befriended Fredrick Bidlake, the architect, Frank Shoreland, and a well known rider of the day, Schofield. He cycled a lot in his late teens, his trips adding to his passion for architecture. He often stopped to sketch on his journeys and would pack a cloth-bound sketch book and the stub of a pencil before heading out to draw arches fonts and lettering in meticulous detail. In August 1897 he made the long journey from London to York and then on from York to Edinburgh in just three days, enough time for him to stop and make a sketch of the South door of York Minster on the way. His grandson, Simon Houffe, recalls his grandfather's account of the return journey from York to London and how he broke his chain on moorland and was forced to wipe his oil-covered hands on the only thing available, a white goat, before setting off again. (The Professor, pp.14-16)

Condition Report: old repairs and damage. Notably front forks with old break and repair, one spoke mising; some old woodworm; brake mechanism partly mising; see photos on web site. Sold as seen.

Attributed to Stevenson and Hancock, Derby, a figure of Dr Syntax

Lot 4: Attributed to Stevenson and Hancock, Derby, a figure of Dr Syntax

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Attributed to Stevenson and Hancock, Derby, a figure of Dr Syntax seated on an upturned wooden butt drawing a bird, a duck and a hen by his feet on the oval mound base gilt with a line, 10cm (4 in.) high Other Notes: The adventures of the fictional Dr Syntax were a publishing sensation when they first appeared in Ackermann's Poetical Magazine in 1812. Each month the caricaturist Thomas Rowlandson produced a drawing of Dr Syntax, a old schoolmaster who travelled the country in search of the Picturesque. The rhyming verse that accompanied the illustrations was written by William Coombe. The series ran for two years and was a huge hit with the public - Dr Syntax's image appeared in porcelain, pottery and prints.

Condition Report: One end of his pencil has been chipped off
