This sale offers enormous choice from a fourth-century manuscript fragment of the Iliad to Charles Dickens’s own inscribed copy of David Copperfield. Besides illuminations of breath-taking beauty in the antiphonal of Elizabeth von Gemmingen, there is an original manuscript score in the hand of J.S. Bach. Among early printed books, Copernicus, Machiavelli and Vesalius are just a few of the many Renaissance authors represented. An impressive selection of atlases and plate books, important works by Charles Darwin and Carl Marx, novels ranging from John Cleland’s Fanny Hill to Agatha Christie’s Appointment with Death, and even a selection of children’s books stunningly bound in multi-coloured morocco, all feature in over 200 lots.
