March Catalogue With The Printers

An account of yesterday at work and the current state of play as regards James and Sons March Auction.


A brief post about two interlinked things Рyesterday at work and the plans for James and Sons March Auction, which is at Fakenham Racecourse.


Due the quantity of items we have received, we have over a thousand lots in this sale, so we will be conducting it over two days. The format for this auction will be:

Tuesday 29th March: Set up and viewing
Wednesday 30th March: Day 1 – lots 1-600 go under the hammer (the cut-off is after half-way as we can leave the stuff at the venue overnight).
Thursday 31st March: Lots 601-1050 and clear-up

The catalogue has been sent to the printers and will therefore be available shortly, and an online version should be ready for viewing by the end of the week.


Although the vast amount of stuff in this auction and lack of staff to image it has left us a little behind where we would like to be in that regard there are only about 200 lots in this sale for which we thus far have no image. I conclude this post with some of the best of yesterday’s images…


The war that led to the creation of this silk map was one that I am proud to say that I virulently opposed, but the map itself is splendid.


This was the lest lot O imaged yesterday.



For those interested in historic buildings, these five volumes which form lot 494 represent effectively a “Complete Guide to Scotland’s Historic Buildings”.
