    Do you know where I can get a copy of the Humewood Castle auction catalogue from July 1992? Thanks for your help.

  2. Dear Paul,

    Thank you for comment. This catalogue was printed 22 years ago and is probably fairly scarce now. Our copy was sourced from a Paris bookseller in 2007. http://www.lecourantdart.net/

    Your best bet is to keep looking for a copy from vendors online. Those we find most useful are:

    Then again, if anyone reading this blog has a copy of the catalogue for sale, please get in touch and we will pass on your details to Paul.

    Good luck with your search.
