Over 400 lots including fine literature from the 17th to 21st centuries, plus a selection of rare, interesting and unusual books and manuscript material from the 13th century onward. Plays by William Shakespeare and 19th century three-deckers give way to poetry and novels of the Beat generation, with high spots from Herman Melville to J.R.R. Tolkien. Following the fine literature are rarities ranging from an important early work on the decipherment of Egyptian hieroglyphs to translations of Neoplatonist philosophers, with finely bound books and sets, medieval manuscript leaves, important science and medical works, and much more.
