The show was guest-curated by Dr Mark Westgarth of Leeds University, whose research tracks the cultural geography of British antiques dealing in the 20th century.

As well as entries for the objects in the exhibition, the 133-page catalogue includes selected biographies of historic dealerships and essays on subjects such as patina and the auction ring. It is available for download from the project website.
