Messrs Dicksee & Co., 7 Duke Street, St. James's, London SW
Messrs R. Jackson & Sons, 3 Slater Street, Liverpool

The Agents charges not specially invited for Exhibition are payable by the Artist.
[...] Messrs Dicksee & Co are prepared, if desired, to effect insurances against all risks, at a scale of fixed charges...
Particulars of each Work sent for Exhibition must be sent to the Curator, on the attached form. The title and price (if for sale) will be taken from this for publication in the catalogue, and quotations or descriptions will be subject to approval and compression, and should be sent in duplicate. The number of works submitted should not exceed four [...] The restriction as to number does not apply strictly to Works of Sculpture, examples of Decorative Art, Pictures in Black and White, Enamels or Miniatures. At the back of each Picture should be written in full the name and address of the Artist, the title and price of the Picture [...] Works of Sculpture and examples of Decorative Art must be similarly labelled and marked, in order to ensure identification. The strict attention of Artists to these regulations is earnestly requested, so as to ensure accuracy in the Catalogue.
[...] Works for sale must be, bona fide, the property of the Artist. A Commission of 5 per cent. upon the Catalogue price will be charged upon all works sold whilst in the possession of the Committee, whether the sale effected by the Artist or the Curator, with the exception that on works sold by means of the Art Union a commission of 10 per cent. on the catalogue price will be charged. The quotation of a sale price by the Artist is to be regarded as giving full authority to the Curator to sell a work without further sanction from the Artist or his legal representatives.
A sale at the catalogue price takes precedence of any offer the acceptance of which has not reached the Curator.
Unless there be a special arrangement at the time of purchase the copyright remains the property of the Artist.
Artists whose Works remain unsold at the close of the Exhibition are requested to forward to the Curator instructions for the disposal of them, as none will be delivered without the direct written authority of the Artist.
No Work that has previously been exhibited in a public Gallery in Liverpool is admissible' (Instructions taken from 'The Liverpool Red Cross autumn exhibition of modern art: the forty-fifth', 1915, pp. 5-6).
