9 LIMITED GUARANTEE
All lots have been carefully examined and any faults or deficiencies found have been noted in the catalogue. It remains true that descriptions, especially of condition, are expressions of opinion. Prospective buyers are therefore asked to make their own inspections during the public viewing, and to satisfy themselves as to the condition and completeness of any lot on which they intend to bid. In the event of any book being found by the buyer to be defective in text or illustration and not so described, Michael Treloar Pty Ltd undertakes to rescind the sale and refund the full purchase price, provided that the book is returned within 14 days of the auction together with a written notice of the defect, and provided that the buyer satisfies Michael Treloar Pty Ltd that it was defective at the date of the auction. This guarantee shall not cover the absence of half-titles or divisional titles, errata leaves, advertisement leaves, plate lists, subsequently published plates, appendices, supplements or volumes, or error in the enumerating of the plates; nor any defect not affecting the completeness of text or illustration. Nor shall it apply to unnamed items in a lot or lots of more than 3 items, to periodicals, atlases, or to books already described in the catalogue as incomplete or defective in text or illustration. Nor shall it apply to any defects announced at the time of the sale. The benefits of this guarantee are not assignable and are applicable only to the original buyer of the lot.
10 Shipping is available at cost and at the risk of the purchaser. If any lot sold is not collected and paid for, the auctioneer and/or the seller shall have the right to resell the lot either by public or private sale, and any deficiency on resale together with any other costs incurred, shall be borne by the defaulting buyer.
11 These Terms and Conditions are governed by and construed in accordance with the law of the state of South Australia.
