2011 marked the 235th anniversary of James Christie’s first library sale (when he sold ten Caxtons, including a Chaucer for £6). The intervening years have seen many of the world’s finest books and manuscripts pass through the company.
Today, Christie’s International Book Department continues to offer for sale the cream of the world’s printed books, medieval manuscripts, autograph letters and archives, through auction or private sale, based in our sale rooms in New York, London and Paris.
