Extremely Rare. Ange-Laurent de La Live de Jully (1725-1779) was an amateur etcher, but also a pioneering collector of French painting and sculpture, and used his immense wealth to support the arts in France; Diderot was a guest at the family s château at La Chevrette [cf. Colin B. Bailey Patriotic Taste, Antiques and Fine Art Magazine] . The great French connoisseur Pierre-Jean Mariette wrote of La Live de Jully that "Before him, hardly any of our artists works were to be seen in private collections, and such indifference served only to justify the lack of consideration in which they were held by our foreign neighbours, . La Live de Jully, the third son of an immensely wealthy and cultivated tax collector, descended into melancholia and madness after 1765.

Estimated Price: £750 - £1,000

Description: Lincoln (Ranulf (III) de Blundeville, sixth earl of Chester and first earl of Lincoln, magnate, 1170-1232) Charter, Hawisa sister of Stephen de Bello Campo [Beauchamp] has granted, quitclaimed and presented to Ranulf Earl of Chester & Lincoln, all that piece [of land] which has come to me from my brother in the manor of Certeleg [Chartley, Staffordshire] with its appurtenances, woods, pastures, ponds, mills etc., witnesses: Walter de Bello campo, Hugh de Mortimer, Fulk Fitz Warin, Philip de Orreby, justice of Chester, Stephen de Segrove, Ralf de Mutton, Alured [Alfred] de Soligny, Ralf de Picheforde, Robert de Esselnit seneschal of Duddel and Peter the Clerk (this document probably composed by Peter the clerk), manuscript in Latin, on vellum, 12 lines, later dorse on verso, a few very small holes not affecting text, folds, slightly browned, lacks seal, 85 x 158mm., [ between 1217-29]. Ranulf de Blundeville grew up as a royal ward in the reign of Henry II. To further his policy in Brittany, Henry arranged for de Blundeville to marry Constance (c. 1161-1201), daughter of Conan (IV), duke of Brittany and widow of Geoffrey, son of Henry II. Thereafter de Blundeville was a strong royalist and supported Richard I, John and Henry III, during his minority and after. After the death of Richard I in 1199 he supported John in his claim to the throne and Constance divorced him. He thereupon made a second Breton marriage alliance and fought for John against Arthur. De Blundeville was one of the few barons who sided with John against the granting of Magna Carta and was prominent with William Marshall in the defence of Henry III's rights. He built up his power base in Cheshire, building the castle of Beeston and this deed shows him consolidating his hold on poperty in an adjacent county. The earls of Chester had owned Chartley since the 1090's and in the 1220's Ranulf de Blundeville rebuilt the castle in stone. This document probably relates to the refurbishment of the castle.

The Knights Templar was a Christian military order founded by Hugo de Payens and Bernard of Clairvaulx to defend pilgrims travelling between Europe and the Holy Land. The order was established in England during the reign of Henry II and quickly gained a large estate throughout several counties, and Yorkshire in particular. They enjoyed patronage under several kings, especially Richard I, King John and Henry III and were noted for their financial dealings. The order was suppressed by order of Philip IV of France in 1307, and later, in England in 1308. The Knights Hospitallers, or the Hospitallers of St John of Jerusalem, now the Most Venerable Order of the Hospital of St John of Jerusalem was a parallel organisation founded to help sick pilgrims travelling to the Holy Land. As with the Knights Templar, the Knights Hospitallers had a military function and gained large estates in the twelfth century. In the 1140s the Order was granted ten acres of land in Clerkenwell, which became their headquarters and of which the gateway still remains and is now the museum of the Order in England. After the fall of the kingdom of Jerusalem, the order moved its headquarters, briefly to Cyprus, then until 1522 to Rhodes, and finally, Malta.

by Dreweatts & Bloomsbury

July 17, 2014, 11:00 AM GMT

London, United Kingdom

Estimated Price: £750 - £1,000

Description: ( Sir John, soldier and landowner, 1380-1459).- Arundel (John Fitzalan, seventh earl of, soldier, 1408-35) & John Duke of Bedford, Prince, Regent of France, younger brother of Henry V, 1389-1435) Document issued by Arundel and Bedford mentioning Sir John Fastolf, transferring Guybon Barde and his men the guard and control of Alençon, previously held by Sir Robert Harling, knight in the service of Sir John Fastolf, manuscript in French, in brown ink, in a neat lettre batârde and signed at tail by the scribe ?"Bezasse" , on vellum, 23 lines, lacks seal, central fold, some creasing and staining slightly affecting legibility of right hand edge of document, docketed on verso and with incorrect date added in another hand, 220 x 360mm., Alençon, Monday, 4th May 1433. Sir John Fastolf saw extensive service in France under the Duke of Clarence in Aquitaine and later, under Henry V in northern France. In 1415 he fought at the battle of Agincourt. He was made Lieutenant of Normandy in 1422 and made a knight of the Garter in 1426. In 1429, while retreating with Lord Talbot from Beaugency, the rearguard was overwhelmed and only the van under Fastolf were able to escape leading to a charge of cowardice from Talbot. The accusation stuck and for many years his reputation suffered. "Although Shakespeare adapted Fastolf's name for his character Sir John Falstaff, the personality he gave him was wholly imaginary. In the original draft of Henry V (1597) the companion of Prince Hal was the historically correct Sir John Oldcastle who had also figured in the Famous Victories of Henry V (1594). Apparently to meet the objection of Oldcastle's descendant, Lord Cobham, Shakespeare changed the name to Falstaff, doubtless suggested by the fact that Fastolf had owned the Boar's Head tavern in Southwark." - Oxford DNB.
