Sold for £2200 (Cline) in that auction was a volume containing manuscript details of various London properties auctioned in the 1820s and '30s by George Robins, a successful town and country auctioneer who also handled the sales of Strawberry Hill, the Southwark Estate (Leicester Square), Rutland House and Nash's estate, as well as Lundy Island.
Catalogued For Sale
REINFORCED at the spine with linen some time ago, the sale catalogue seen right was issued in 1836 by a Mr Pigott for a sale of farming stock, garden and other seeds, plus household furniture, held at Normandy Farm, near Ash in Surrey – the home of “the late William Cobbett, Esq. MP”, and of course author of Rural Rides. In a Bloomsbury Auctions sale of June 17, it was sold for £400 (C.R. Johnson).
