Specialist book sales are held four times a year and always include a specific section dedicated to maps, atlases and ephemera.
The sales are fully catalogued, with all lots illustrated online and live online bidding is available at
Significant and high-profile sales have included the Douglas Grant Library, and we hold the world record for several titles including Arthur Ransome’s “Swallows & Amazons” at £7,000. Also, more recently, a spectacular collection of 18th and 19th century botanical watercolours, house loose within a fine 19th century black morocco album, selling at £170,000
Our specialist has many years of experience in the book world, and can advise both buyers and sellers about their libraries or individual books.
Large quantities of books are also included in the weekly Antiques & Interiors sales - as these are often sold by large quantities, viewing is essential.
