A DOMINIC Winter sale of July 21 included a collection of Victorian bookbindings from the library of the late Dr Nigel Temple.

Top right: an 1862 facsimile of Tyndale's first English New Testament sporting a remarkable binding of morocco-backed wooden boards carved in high relief to a medieval design and fitted with silver clasp and cornerpieces, made £700 (Lachman) and two lots offering selections of 14 Mauchlineware bindings apiece brought bids of £1650 for the tartan types and £840 for fern and leaf pattern examples, one of which is seen bottom right.
