We have a considerable stock of decorative vellum bound books which we sell mainly to interior decorators and clients looking to create interesting features in homes, offices, hotels, etc. The predominantly white tones of the books make them easy to incorporate in modern interiors as well as in those requiring a strong period look. Over the last thirty years we have worked with international interior decorators to create impressive features varying from a single table arrangement of a pile of varied books with a lamp to whole bookcases and walls of vellum. LAST UPDATED 25th April 2017. For further information on any of the books here please contact Jeffery Bates at batesandhindmarch@gmaiThe books in this picture date from 1610 to 1820 and the majority of those we stock are of 18th century origin, usually printed in Latin and generally of theological or ancient literary subjects. We are also including a few non vellum armorial bindings.
Prices for books in decent condition [we do not usually clean books as that is a matter of preference best left to the client] will range from about £30 per book for sets of small books to upwards of £150 for large folio volumes and antique armorial bindings.
If you wish to discuss the books in the photograph or similar examples held in Cheltenham please contact Jeffery Bates via the contact details on the website.
