Chiswick Auctions has weekly auctions every Tuesday of the year, except immediately around Christmas. Viewings are held on Sundays and Mondays.
Chiswick specialize in antiques but do sell modern objects and designer goods. Most of the objects sold have an exceeding value of 60 Pounds.
The saleroom is featured almost daily on television, with programmes such as Cash in the Attic, Dickinson’s Real Deal, Flog It!, and Bargain Hunt. The frequent television coverage has already helped to make the auctioneers surprisingly well known public figures and considerably increased the public’s knowledge of the saleroom.

[DRUMMOND, Henry (1851-97)]. Baxter’s Second Innings. Specially Reported for the ---- School Eleven. London: Hodder & Stoughton, 1892. Tall small 8vo. Original silk boards, striped in the manner of a blazer and with the title and author’s initials ‘H.D.’ on a silk ‘badge’ mounted on the upper cover (some fraying to corners, spine a little discoloured). RARE. FIRST EDITION. Padwick 6942. Later editions of the work, of which there were many, were published with the author’s full name. Henry Drummond was a Scottish evangelist and academic who was very highly-regarded in his own lifetime – in 1893 he delivered the Lowell Lectures in Boston – but he has subsequently passed into comparative obscurity. The present work is a religious polemic in the form of a cricketing story. "I was produced on TMS for thirty-four years by Peter Baxter which made this one a MUST!" (H.B.).Read more

LEE, Harper (1926-2016). To Kill a Mockingbird. Philadelphia & New York: J. B. Lippincott, 1960. 8vo. Half title (a few stains). Original green cloth-backed brown paper boards, spine lettered in brown, dust-jacket designed by Shirley Smith (a few nicks, price-clipped).
