Sale Information

The Chris Casson Collection of Early 20th Century Literature will be at the heart of Tennants Auctioneers’ Books, Maps and Ephemera Sale on 10th March. The collection has a particular focus on Modernist literature, and the expatriate writers who gathered in Paris in the 1920s. Writers represented in the collection include American writers Ezra Pound, H.D. (Hilda Doolittle) and Gertrude Stein, British writers Richard Aldinton, Nancy Cunard and Bryher, and Irish writer James Joyce. Further highlights included an Elizabeth I Letters Patent dated 1600, with a pendant impression of the Second Great Seal in brown wax which was designed by Nicholas Hilliard, a selection of works on Fly Fishing, and an interesting collection of Ephemera including ‘cobweb’ moveable pictures.
