Important Notice for Lot Nos. 7117 through 7138 in Sale No. 18270:
Robin Symes Ltd., a UK business, is in liquidation, and Lot Nos. 7117 through 7138 are being sold by the liquidators who make no warranty as to title, but have been given no reason to believe that good title cannot be passed. These lots are sold strictly on this basis and, if in doubt, prospective bidders should seek their own legal advice.
As a result, the Conditions of Sale shall be deemed amended for these 22 lots as follows:
1. The section entitled "Limitation of Liability" in the Conditions of Sale is hereby supplemented by the following additional language:
"THE CONSIGNOR SHALL SELL AND THE BUYER SHALL PURCHASE ONLY SUCH RIGHT, TITLE AND INTEREST (IF ANY) AS THE CONSIGNOR HAS TO AND IN THE LOT. THE BUYER HEREBY ACKNOWLEDGES, FOR THE AVOIDANCE OF DOUBT, THAT IF IT SHALL BE FOUND THAT THE CONSIGNOR DOES NOT HAVE TITLE TO OR IS OTHERWISE UNABLE TO TRANSFER THE LOT OR THE LOT IS SUBJECT TO ANY ENCUMBRANCE, SUCH FINDING SHALL NOT BE A GROUND OR GROUNDS FOR RESCINDING, AVOIDING OR VARYING ANY OR ALL OF THE PROVISIONS OF THE SALE, NOR SHALL SUCH A FINDING ENTITLE THE BUYER TO REPAYMENT OF THE PURCHASE PRICE. THE PURCHASER EXPRESSLY ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES THAT IN NO EVENT SHALL BONHAMS OR THE CONSIGNOR BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY COMPENSATORY, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES."
2. The second sentence of the third paragraph of the section entitled "Limited Right of Rescission" in the Conditions of Sale is hereby amended in its entirety to read as follows:
"The purchaser hereby accepts the benefit of the consignor's representations and warranties made by the consignor for the purchaser's benefit, to the extent that any such representations and warranties have been made by the consignor."
