Titel: Book Auction Records : A Priced and ...
Verlag: Dawson, Folkestone, first edition, 1989
Cloth, large 8vo, xvi, 611 pp. A valuable reference giving auction prices realized for individual books or sets (but not lots of two or more unrelated works) with ample bibliographical detail for ease of identification. After the author and title, details include editor, translator, illustrator, place of publication, press if important, and date. Then follow details of edition/issue, number of volumes if more than one, format, description of binding and, when applicable, important ownership marks, presentation inscriptions, annotations or extraneous material such as letters, notes or other inserts. Information is also given on imperfections, damage or defects that might affect the price. The bibliographical description is followed by the auction sale record, which gives the auction house date of sale, sale lot number, buyer's name (when given and published by the auction house) and the price made, which is the hammer price. (Where known, the amount of buyer's premium charged by each Auction House is given as a percentage). In addition cross-references are made for pseudonyms, joint authorship, nobles, compound names (in cases where confusion may arise) and also for the more important illustrators, editors, translators and private presses. Bibliographical abbreviations used in the records are those which appear in the list of abbreviations. This Volume records only those lots which realised £50.00 and over (U.K.), $100.00 and over (U.S.A., Canada and Australia), or the European equivalent of £100.00 and over . The map entries are generally arranged alphabetically by Author or Cartographer followed by the title, place and date of publication, size, description and sale record. The description includes details of decoration, whether coloured, framed and glazed or mounted, and also any imperfections that might affect the price. Covers rubbed and lower edge of front board somewhat worn, 3 inches of rear joint frayed, otherwise Good. Buchnummer des Verkäufers ABE-06704
