Sale #L22404

Our July sale, open for bidding from 12 to 19 July, brings together an exceptional range of important books and manuscripts from Medieval Books of Hours to modern first editions. The sale’s strong music section is led by a Schubert letter, whilst a group of presentation manuscripts gifted to Queen Elizabeth I is a highlight of our early British material. Continental material includes a manuscript by Strindberg, a letter by Aretino, and a wealth of incunabula and early printing. With works ranging from a Tyndale Bible to original EH Shepard illustrations, this broadly encompassing sale is a true celebration of the written word.

Session 3 – Expanding Collections: What’s Possible
Using a number of collection evolution and transformation case studies we will examine where collections can go, and some of the maps and models that collectors can use to create structures around their collecting activities.  In this section we will also discuss the collecting end game by answering the question of where do collections go, or where can they go.
