Closes for bidding midnight 25 November 2016 (U.K. time)

Dear Members,
I think you will like this Auction; it is one of the most varied and interesting I have been able to compile. As well as a wide range of general material from all periods, the catalogue includes a number of specialist collections:

I do hope you will enjoy reading the catalogue and will find something of interest. My best wishes to you and your family for a merry Christmas and a healthy 2017.

Webmaster's remarks: The size of the image window is controlled by the settings on your computer, not by this web site. The pictures have been provided by a 'quick and easy' scanning process which does not give completely accurate colour reproduction, and also usually produces a heavy black shadow at the top of each image. Do not rely on the pictures to judge shades. In particular, the buff colour of monarchy-period postcards tends to come out much whiter than the actual colour; and sometimes the stamps appear to glow luridly! The images have not been retouched (ie, all the markings added over the years by dealers and vendors have been left). If you need to know precise dimensions of any item ask the Auctioneer. To ensure you are looking at the latest version of this page, use your browser's "Refresh" feature. The buttons above may open a new browser tab or a new window: the choice is controlled by which version of what browser you have plus how you have set it, not by this web site. The programs we use cannot easily cope with varying page sizes, so you'll find everything is A4 portrait or landscape, and some of the portrait pages have the bottom half blank. The alternative was to have lots split over page breaks, or in non-numerical order; we think our choice is the lesser evil.
