Christie's charge a buyer's premium of 20.825% of the hammer price for lots with values up to NLG 200,000. If the hammer price exceeds the NLG 200,000 then the premium is calculated at 20.825% of the first NLG 200,000 plus 11.9% of any amount in excess of NLG 200,000.
The following four lots were collected by A.P.G. Demuenynck, Artillery Lieutenant (1876-1942)
Demuenynck was sent to the Independent State of the Belgian Congo in August 1904 as a sub-lieutenant in the artillery, spending three years at Mahagi on the west bank of Lake Albert where he mapped the area, his work being published in 1908 as Au Pays de Mahagi Région du Lac Albert et du Heut-Nil et les Pygmées du Haut-Ituri. After a brief visit to Belgium he was sent once again to the Belgian Congo in 1908 to join an expedition against the Sultan Djabbir in Bambili. He returned to Belgium later that year. During the expedition he would have passed though the Irumu and Uele regions and collected the following four lots. They are consigned for sale by his widow.
