Review Entries for Day Friday, 28 July 2017

Among many finely bound leather volumes offered in Bearnes Hampton & Littlewood's Antiquarian Book Auction on 6th September 2017, the pick is probably a copy of 'Lord Lilford's Birds' (BK18/98). Published in 1903, it is a sumptuous signed binding by Zaehnsdorf.

It carries a pre-sale estimate of £100-£150.
