Rare Books &c. at Auction This Week

 

At Forum Auctions on Thursday, September 30, 514 lots of Fine Books, Manuscripts and Works on Paper. Scottish photographer John Thomson's four-volume Illustrations of China and Its People (1873–74) rates the top estimate at £15,000–20,000. The first collected edition of Milton's poetry, Poems of Mr. John Milton (1645), could sell for £12,000–18,000; the same estimate has been assigned to a copy of Ian Fleming's Casino Royale in an unrestored dust jacket. An Aleister Crowley charcoal sketch of the Tyrrhenian Sea is estimated at £10,000–15,000.
