Auctions and Sales

Antiquarian Book Sales

Bearnes Hampton & Littlewood hold two antiquarian book auctions (including manuscripts, maps and prints) each year. The items consigned to these sales are primarily offered through our Books and Manuscripts department.

Our antiquarian book auctions usually cover the following categories:-

Our antiquarian book auctions are always supported by at least one live online bidding platform. Telephone bidding is also available by prior arrangement.

Antiquarian book sales are usually on view for several days before they start. We publish viewing details with our catalogues.

We print colour catalogues for our antiquarian book sales that can be bought from our salerooms. Alternatively, they can be read online in electronic format without charge.
