Library touched by hand of Dod

Ancient family home in Cheshire includes typical 19th century country house book collection

Books and works on paper

Edge Hall, near Malpas in Cheshire, has been a home to members of the Dod family since the reign of Henry II, but the library – sold by Forum Auctions (25/20% buyer’s premium) on October 12 – was formed in the 19th century and is typical of country house libraries.

Handsomely bound library sets, though present, are not part of this report, but as well as the £36,000 surprise discovery and sale of a Rousseau work bound for a French queen that featured in last week’s report (ATG No 2314), a rich mix was on offer and several records emerged.

Travel and topography

Privately printed in 1827, illustrated with 11, mostly litho plates and bound in contemporary blind and gilt stamped pink calf gilt, a famous mountaineering book, Charles Fellows’ Narrative of an Ascent to the Summit of Mont Blanc, sold at £6000.
