Our Book, Maps & Prints auctions regularly achieve considerable success for rare and out of print works.
Our Specialist Library auctions are held twice annually and feature rare books, collectors' books, antique books, modern first editions, maps and prints and entire private libraries.
From fine antiquarian leather bindings and classic literature to modern first edition Harry Potter volumes, the sales cater for the full spectrum of bibliophiles and collectors. Our book auctions cover subjects such as travel and exploration, science and medicine, cookery, private press, autograph letters and manuscripts. Our team of experts are always happy to examine both single volumes and entire libraries, assessing them for sale, insurance or other professional purposes.
