Most of the publications offered in this auction are from an established library, and as such may contain library markings and labels. Occassionally end papers have been removed, spines and corners have been strengthened, and tears have been repaired. PLEASE ALSO NOTE that journal and magazine sets have not been checked for continuity or completeness. Viewing is therefore recommended.

Many of the literature lots in this auction are very heavy indeed and so postage/transport costs may be high. We therefore strongly recommend that BUYERS COLLECT group lots (or very large individual volumes), or contact us before bidding to clarify the likely shipping costs. Buyers are liable for all shipping costs. Lots can be collected from our Derby offices only for up to one week after the sale. All lots must be paid for before collection. Storage charges will apply to all lots not collected by Wednesday 4 August 2021 (at the rate of £5 + VAT per box per day). Thank you.
