INTRODUCTION

I have mentioned a project involving photographica that I have been caryring out as part of my job at James and Sons Auctioneers in two previous posts:

Now that I have officially catalogued everything in the collection and assembled a photo gallery I am producing this post. There will be one more post specifically about this collection when I know what each lot sold for (i.e. post auction, which will be happening on November 25th).

LOTTING UP

Having ultimately catalogued this vast collection into 22 lots on a spreadsheet formatted as the final catalogue listing would be so that I could copy and paste rows into said listing, all I needed to complete the process were lot number stickers, plus some tie on labels for those lots which warranted it to finish the process of getting this stuff ready for auction. I was given lots 75-100 inclusive for photographica, and decided that as 100 as easily the most distinctive of these numbers that the prize item of the collection should get that number. Apart from that use of the magic number 100 I front-loaded the rest of the listing, starting things of with the folding cameras and others that I was selling individually. The bulk lots come in the low 90s, and at the moment lot numbers 96-99 inclusive have not been assigned.

THE END PRODUCT

76 76-a 76-b 77 77-a 78 79 80 81 81-a 82 82-a 82-b 82-c

This has the lowest estimate of any of the photographica, because even with its original bag it is not that rare an item.

83-a

Lots 84, 85 and 86 are three identical cameras, of sufficiently esteemed make and model that each is worth selling singly.

95

The final lot in the photographica section - estimate on this is £60 - 80 - a deliberately conservative estimate to attract bidders.

100-a

This, the third image relating to lot 100 should be the last you see (but it is possible that the images for lot 75 appear out of position since I had problems uploading them - everything else is defintiely in lot number order - 76-95 inclusive and then 100)

This picture and the next  are of lot 75, which starts the photographica section - this has the second highest estimate of any of the cameras being sold individually at £40-50.

I am a keen photographer, so that most of my own posts contain photos. I am a keen cricket fan and often write about that subject. I also focus a lot on politics and on nature.
