John Robert Augustus Oetzmann, Messrs  Oetzmann & Co manuscript Valuation & Map Hampstead Road
1 John Robert Augustus Oetzmann, Messrs Oetzmann & Co manuscript Valuation & Map Hampstead Road
London unpublished 1893 Unique Unpublished Original Paperback Very Good 20.5 x 30.5cm Approx 
4 single sided pages + coloured map. Paperback binding, good condition, some ageing. Contents very good, clean and tight minor folding to fold out map. All is hand written with hand made map, there is no printing at all. No inscriptions. This is an original (possibly only) 1893 hand written valuation of the “freehold and leasehold properties, also the fixtures and fittings, trade utensils” etc., etc. “belonging to the trusties of the late John Robert Augustus Oetzmann, trading as Messrs Oetzmann & Co.,” dated “September 1893” ( he died in 1886). Inside at the front is the fold-out map on tracing paper showing all the buildings & yards etc. within 67 – 79 Hampstead Road & 146-152 Drummond Street & 15 William Street. Seems to have been made for the sale of firm. The report mentions the brown is the leasehold, but over time all looks red, but from rear can see what is/was brown. Though it goes into detail about all the buildings etc. mentions cellars, basements, what used for etc.. It values of all the freehold premises as one amount and all leasehold as one, + a total rental value as another amount. The stock in trade, fittings, horses etc. as another amount. And signed by the surveyors/valuers below the total value, some pages of the handmade paper is watermarked “Whatman 1893”, it does not mention who the buyers were, but assume it was some or all of his sons, or the sale did not go through, as from a quick net check could not find any info of being taken over. From the net; John Robert Augustus Oetzmann born 1825 in Ipswich, opened the furniture shop in 1848 at 67 Hampstead Road, London, and grew & grew and was carried on by his sons after his death in 1886, and was one of the largest furniture/household shops in London, it seems to have closed just after WWII. So a unique manuscript item relating to history of the John Oetzmann / Messrs Oetzmann & Co.

4 Anon programme orig author of play William Shakespeare, Starring (Sir) Henry Irving, Frank Cooper, Fuller Mellish, Norman Forbes, Cooper Cliffe, Maud Milton, Ellen Terry etc. The Merchant of Venice: Original Theatre Programme Performed at Royal Lyceum Theatre March 1898
London Royal Lyceum Theatre 1898 1st Edition in This Form Paperback Good 17 x 21.5cm. Approx 
4 page sheet. Original Theatre Programme for The Merchant of Venice Performed at the Royal Lyceum Theatre March 1898 (lists 3 performances, so was for either 4th, 5th or 6th of March performance). Generally fair/good condition for a Victorian programme, i.e., no inscriptions, has been folded in quarter and minimal staining (see scans). Notable for collectors as performance programme lists both Henry Irving as Shylock & Ellen Terry as Portia. Lists Henry Irving as sole lessee and manager of the Royal Lyceum but interestingly though he became the first actor ever awarded a knighthood, the programme does not list him anywhere as Sir Henry Irving. Though is does state “This Theatre is lighted by Electricity, supplied by the Electricity Supply Corporation, Ltd” as at this time Electric lighting was not common, Gas and oil lighting were common.

5 British Uralite Co “Abestone” (Asbestos cement sheets and roofing tiles) advertising Flyer
London British Uralite Co. (1908) Ltd 1932 First Edition Pamphlet Good 11.5 x 20.5cm Approx 
One sheet, six sided advertising flyer for this dangerous (now illegal) substance. Card/paper as published. Condition Good, minor folding top/base and small brown stain that affects each side. Undated but this name was only used between 1908 & 1932. This details the various products with sizes & weights. From the net found out that Asbestos was used for a range building products, of which asbestos cement was one of the last, but become the most widely used until the link to cancer was proven. From the time of Charlemagne the material had been woven into a fireproof cloth, made from amianthus, and by the 19th even roofing. With new mines opening from 1877 there was more commercial exploitation of the mineral. From a quick net check I could not find another copy.
