Bronze plaque showing the Apocalypse, Revelation, Chapter 13, and the seven headed, ten horned beast coming out of the water. The text around the heads read like the seven deadly sins: god of war, fraud, rape, profit, envy, pride and hate.

Undated (probably early 20th century), no artist signature and no real idea of the purpose of this piece. It is 19cm in length and 15cm in width.

Candide or the Optimist (Voltaire, illustrations by Alan Odle, George Routledge & Sons, 1922)

Alan Odle (1888-1948) worked as the art editor of the short-lived periodical, The Gypsy. He exhibited with Harry Clarke, Austin Osman Spare and John Austen at the St George’s Gallery in 1925 and at the Godfrey Philips Galleries in 1930. He illustrated various books and magazines including Poe but never completed his magnum opus, an edition of Rabelais’ Gargantua.
