17/07/2009 Chiswick Curates
Nick Worskett, previously the head of Christies South Kensington book department has now joined Chiswick as a specialist consultant. This appointment is good news for everyone with an interest in Books and paper related antiques and collectables. Nick has a wide knowledge, covering traditional antique books and maps, but also the more recent markets covering collectable first editions, illustrated books, fine bindings and for that matter almost any printed items.
We are planning a specialist book sale 17th November - for which we are now collecting good lots. The sale will be accompanied by a full colour printed catalogue. Nick will be drawing on his years of experience and contacts, so that all lots in the sale are promoted fully and the right buyers are sent catalogues.
If you have books you would like valued, we are having a special book valuation day Monday 7th September. (4pm - 8pm) This date is also the same day we are viewing our September 'fine' sale - so you can combine a view with an opportunity to get your books looked at as well. We are even offering a glass of wine as an incentive!
