Books & Ephemera



The Books, Bric-a-Brac and Miscellany department holds a weekly sale and offers a comprehensive catalogue of books, maps, manuscripts, postcards, photographs, documents, periodicals and other printed material. Our specialists are on hand to advise on the sale of single items through to entire collections and libraries whether private or institutional. 

For advice on selling at auction please contact the saleroom where our valuer would be happy to discuss the best method of disposal and the appropriate marketing of your collection.
