Another gem on offer from the private collection of Cornish books to be included in the Antiquarian Book Auction on 15th March 2017 is Richard Carew's Survey of Cornwall

Richard Carew's Survey of Cornwall, 1602

The March 2017 Antiquarian Book Auction includes a good private collection of over 120 lots of Cornish books, including many scarce titles.

One of the highlights of the Cornish collection is Philip Rashleigh's Specimens of British Minerals (BK17). Two volumes in one,  with 53 hand coloured plates of minerals bound in half gilt morocco and cloth sides, 4to, 1797-1802.
