The time and effort taken to assemble this popular sale is immediately obvious. A Private Collection of works relating to Cathay and Farther India has already generated interest in the highly collectable Oriental markets. A Private Collection of books on Staffordshire - one of Britain's most beautiful historic counties - covers its history and culture back to the 17th Century and includes works on trials and hunting. We are also pleased to offer an exceptional copy of Samuel and Nathaniel Buck's Antiquities from 1728. This lot features outstanding 18th Century views of towns and cities in England. Also included are sections on Botany, Ornithology and Mineralogy.
The subject of Space Exploration has always held a fascination for those growing up during the Space Race as the first Space Walks and eventual Moon Landings focussed the attention of the world on the brave pioneers of Space Travel. We have an amazing collection of signed and inscribed books, photographs and first day covers. Famous names such as Yuri Gagarin and Valentina Tereshkova appear in these collections.
