Toovey’s conduct specialist auctions of Antiquarian & Collectors’ Books twice a year. These are often supplemented by single-owner collections, such as the Library Collection of the late W. Lesley Weller and the Travel and Exploration Collection of the late Michael Gilkes. These sales encompass everything from early manuscript books to modern first editions. They regularly include leather-bound volumes, works of natural history, topographical and reference interest, illustrated works and children’s books.
