If you are a lover of old books, English classic authors, or both, then you may well want to keep an eye out for our next auction catalogue (Thursday 1st November). We have just consigned a fine single-owner collection of 19th and early 20th century leather and decorative cloth bound books, including some multiple-volume sets and a good selection of children’s picture and story books. Authors include Byron, Milton, Coleridge, Wordsworth, Tennyson, Fenimore-Cooper, Ruskin, Wilde and Yeats, as well as some illustrated volumes by Aubrey Beardsley. Notable amongst the children’s literature are antique editions of Grimm’s Fairy Tales and Hans Andersen’s Fairy Tales, a set of Andrew Lang’s Fairy Books, an antique set of Beatrix Potter stories, and antique volumes by Robert Louis Stevenson and Charles Kingsley. Quality literature doesn’t often come as beautifully packaged as this, or in a selection as wide as this, and with Christmas just around the corner our November catalogue may be perfect for you or the bookworm/s in your life.
