The auction house is busy growing a specialism in rare vintage books and antiquarian books and volumes. The department is supported by expert valuer, Rob Kerr, and you can expect to see a strong, interesting selection of lots every few weeks in our weekly auctions of antiques, vintage, collectable and clearance items.
Rob is also working closely with our lead auctioneers, creating a new section for higher value volumes within our popular two-day auctions of antiques, collectables and curios held on the first Monday and Tuesday of the month on a bimonthly basis.
Highlights may include: William Gilpin’s 18th Century, two-volume illustrated ‘Observations, relative chieply to Picturesque Beauty, made in the year 1772, on several parts of England; particularly the Mountains and the Lakes of Cumberland and Westmorland’; seven folio volumes of ‘The Statutes at Large, Containing all the Public Acts of Parliament &C, London: 1734-1759’; a selection of signed Alfred Wainwright volumes; or a first edition of Arthur Ransome’s ‘Swallows and Amazons’.
Rob is always on hand for expert advice and can provide fair and accurate assessments of condition and estimated value. Why not sign up for an account today, so you can receive the latest news and updates for our antique book auctions!
