Books & Manuscripts

'There is no friend as loyal as a book' - Ernest Hemmingway

Books really are a joy to behold in more ways than one. Not only is it in the content, whether fact or fiction, but equally it is in the illustrations or the bindings. Even in the age of the Kindle, the book as an information or escapism source is just as desirable as it ever was.

Bamfords' book auctions take place throughout the year and represent the entire cross section of published works. Our Specialists are proficient in assisting clients on their antiquarian, modern first, plate books and even incunables.

If you have an item you’d like valued please visit us at one of our many Valuation Days or request an online valuation here.
