RICHARDS (S.). Monthly Catalogue of Antiques, Curios, etc., on Sale by S. Richards, Friar Lane, Nottingham.1901

Nottingham: S. Richards, Oblong 4to, numerous illustrations, a series of catalogues bound together, numbered p.384-767, No. CXVIII, New Series, March 18th 1901—No. CCXLIV, New Series, Nov. 1913, each monthly number consists of 3 hand-drawn lithograph leaves with on average 30 objects accompanied by descriptive text and price, bound in cont. hard grained morocco, lettered in gilt on upper cover. S. Richards traded in Nottingham in the period c.1880-1920 and his catalogues, published monthly, offer a fascinating insight into the taste, classifications, descriptions, and prices for antiques in the period. Richards seems to have produced these catalogues from the 1880s up until the end of the First World War, posting them out to collectors. He sold a very wide range of antiques and 'curios' and the pages illustrate what remain as standard 'antique' collectable objects.
