Specialist books to include early and rare antiquarian volumes, modern first editions, manuscripts, maps and general written ephemera are included in our quarterly Fine Art & Antiques sales.  Lower value volumes and bindings are included in our three-weekly Home & Interiors.  Please note that the majority of mass-produced books no longer have any value at auction, and we would advise contacting us prior to bringing books to the Auction Centre for sale.

Recent highlights include a near-complete set of Wisden Cricketers Almanacs which sold for £7,800 and a collection of Beatrix Potter first editions which, along with other children’s volumes, totalled other £6,000.

Our book consultant Guy Pratt is available at the Auction Centre by appointment or can visit you in the comfort of your home for larger collections.
