Books & Manuscripts Auctions and Valuations

Over the past five years Gorringe’s specialist book auctions have gone from strength to strength.

These Spring and Autumn sales boast a diverse selection of books ranging in both subject and date, from early Latin texts to traditional bindings, botanical, entemological, sporting subjects and first editions.

Our specialist has successfully auctioned several collections of Wisden’s Almanacs which produced two of the highest paid prices ever seen for Wisden’s at auction, with 1896 & 1897 hardbacks realising £17,000 each.

Gorringe’s can also advise clients on authenticate manuscripts and letters which are sold within the book auctions. In recent years these have included letters from King George IV, Charles Dickens, Daphnie Du Maurier, Florence Nightingale and Sir Winston Churchill.
