A private collector has consigned a range of early 20th century ‘classic’ illustrations to Gildings’ Fine Art & Antique auction on September 3.

A rare set of six hand-coloured lithographic broadsides (one shown above) by Ernest H Shepard for AA Milne’s When We Were Very Young, Methuen & Co, 1926, is estimated at £2000-3000.

This set is offered alongside a proof set of the same lithographic broadsides (without colour) guided at £1500-2000 and an original pen and ink drawing of Winnie-the-Pooh and Piglet sat on a bench (£4000-6000).

Humbert & Ellis is offering a remarkable collection of more than 85 vintage and rare pedal cars via an online-only auction closing on September 8. The group of fully-restored pre-and post-war vehicles by a raft of different makers represents over 60 years of collecting.

Viewing is by appointment only in Devon. This Tri-ang Sea Spray pedal car/boat with red plastic hull from the 1960s, above, is estimated at £1750-2250.
