About Sydney Rare Book Auctions

Biography

Located in thriving New South Wales, Sydney Rare Book Auctions was founded in 2011. With a team of directors boasting over 50 years of experience and an extensive knowledge base in the rare book trade, the auction house specializes in books and manuscripts, maps, prints, photography, and art. To date, Sydney Rare Book Auctions has partnered with Invaluable.com for sixteen auctions.


Sydney Rare Book Auctions caters to a cosmopolitan audience, offering items which are very uncommon to the Australian market. Recently, they sold a sixteenth century illuminated manuscript antiphonal, which realized $13,200; a monastic prayer book, which garnered $3,100; and an additional velum manuscript, which brought in $3,600. Additionally, a Jane Austen First Edition fetched $5,200, and a rare medical book (1669) sold for $4,000. A plethora of rare maps were auctioned for far above their high estimates, as well, including an 1803 Map of the Indian Ocean ($2,300), a 1606 Map with Terra Australis ($4,000), and a 1799 Map of New Holland ($1,200). Sydney Rare Book Auctions boasts a strong clearance rate and stout interest in their unique fare.
