Our burgeoning book department is enjoying healthy and rapid growth. We have achieved considerable success with the sale of collections of rare works by renowned authors and illustrators such as Arthur Conan Doyle, Charles Dickens, H Rider Haggard, Arthur Rackham, Kurt Vonnegut amogst many others.
All books are carefully appraised and catalogued, with detailed descriptions and condition reports prepared by our experienced and respected specialist, Michael Kousah, prior to exposure to an eager worldwide audience.
