Book Auction Records: 9 Volumes

£49.00

Product description

Priced and Annotated Annual Records of the London, New York and Edinburgh Book Auctions, published by Henry Stevens, Son & Stiles, London. All volumes have red cloth covers with gilt lettering to spine and measure 13.5cm x 21cm. There are numerous additional pages in each volume containing advertisements with black and white illustrations and lists of booksellers.   

Vol. 27 (1929-30; 854 pp. with author index; includes Glasgow and Dublin auctions and obituary of the publisher with photograph)
Vol. 49 (1951-52; 543 pp. with author index)
Vol. 50 (1952-53; 447 pp. with author index)
Vol. 51 (1953-54; 465 pp. with author index)
Vol. 52 (1954-55; 470 pp. with author index)
Vol. 54 (1956-57; 456 pp. with author index)
Vol. 55 (1957-58; 478 pp. with author index)
Vol. 62 (1964-65; 788 pp. with author index)
Vol. 64 (1966-67; 886 pp. with author index)

As expected, condition does vary with age, however all volumes are in good condition for their age with the latest two volumes in very good condition. The hardcovers show some shelf wear and a little edge wear with the exception of Vol 27 which has obviously more scuffing. The front board of Vol 27 is faded and Vol. 52 has some staining. Bindings are tight in all volumes. Internally, there is light tanning to pages in the older volumes and only a little tanning to the newer volumes. Very little foxing is visible in any of the volumes. The text is clear and legible throughout and the pages are intact with no tears.
