Books and Maps

We normally hold four sales a year including rare and antiquarian books, manuscripts and first editions and collectors items.

At Ewbank’s we are regularly asked to dispose of collections of books mostly emanating from deceased estates or private collections which are being dispersed by vendors who no longer have the space to house them through changes of circumstances. We normally hold four sales a year including rare and antiquarian books and first editions and collectors items. Sales include  specialist areas at different price ranges and more general auctions covering a variety of subjects. This department also handles the sale of manuscripts and signed letters from famous literary or historical figures, and maps which frequently date from the 16th to 18th centuries and often  because of our location relate to Surrey and the surrounding areas. The wide current use of word-search facilities on line lends itself well to marketing  for published books which means that buyers can relatively easily find what they are looking for on the international web-sites that we use to publicise our auctions.
