The March Auction: Spotlight on Maps

Some details and images from James and Sons, and another mention of the Positive Autism Awareness Conference.

INTRODUCTION

Imaging for James and Sons’ March Auction (March 30th and probably 31st) is proceeding apace. I imaged the maps that from the bulk of this post a while back, although I am also including something from today.

A BINDER FULL OF ANTIQUE MAPS

These maps form a continuous sequence from lot 391-416 inclusive, and without further ado here are the pictures:

416-c

A SPEEDWAY SPREAD

I am concluding this section with the images of a set of speedway badges mounted on canvas which have been divided into 10 lots. Here is a single image of the entire collection:

422-31

Here is the gallery of individual images, including some close ups of distinctive badges:

DATES FOR YOUR DIARY

The images I have shared above are all for the March Auction, as previously stated, but James and Sons have auctions before that, our main February auction at the Maids Head Hotel, Norwich on the 24th, and a smaller auction taking place at our shop on 5 Norwich Street, Fakenham on the 25th. Full catalogues for both auctions are ready for viewing:

For the big auction on the 24th click here.
For the smaller auction on the 25th click here.

The March auction, at the Prince of Wales Suite, Fakenham Racecourse, is likely be a two day sale, on the 30th and 31st.

Since I have a ‘dates for your diary section’ I conclude this post with a reminder of the Postive Autism Awareness Conference taking place at the Dukes Head Hotel, King’s Lynn on April 15th, commencing at 9:30. I am reliably informed that tickets are selling like hot cakes. After the links below, a copy of the official poster is at the bottom of this post.
