Books & Written Ephemera

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.  Please note that Books are sold subject to no return.

Recent highlights include a collection of letters including an example by Charles Dickens which sold for £4,600 and was featured in the national press, 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 over £6,000.

Our Books & Written Ephemera valuer Glenn Pearl is available at the Auction Centre Monday to Friday 9am - 5.30pm.
