FREE BOOK VALUATION DAY (article first published : 2005-09-5)

The highly respected international auction house, Christies, in association with Ike's Books and Collectables invites the public to a free book valuation day on September14.

Nick Worskett, Senior Specialist (Books & Manuscripts), at Christies, South Kensington, London, will be in Durban on that day to undertake the valuations.

Nick Worskett read English at Exeter College, Oxford (2:1) with particular emphasis on the 19th and 20th Century (Ruskin, Pater, Morris etc). He joined Christie's South Kensington in 1992 following training in galleries in London and New York and four years with the Book Department of another auction house. Nick has a particular interest in modern first editions, private press and fine printing, children's books, 19th and 20th Century literature and philosophy, as well as printed maps and atlases. He has led the sale of Book sections in many house sales and collections, most recently the highly successful sale of the Peter Bologna Collection of Modern First Editions, and the libraries of Fort Augustus, Brocket Hall and Chirk Castle in which Hamilton's Collection of Etruscan, Greek and Roman Antiquities realised £55,000 - a world record price for the book.

The book valuation day takes place on September 14 from 09h30 to 15h00 at Ike’s Books and Collectables, 48a Florida Road, Durban
