An Annual list of all Engravings and Etchings sold by Auction in London, Glasgow and Edinburgh, alphabetically arranged throughout.
Vol. VIII. (1925-26) in the press.
Extract from The Connoisseur, December, 1926:
To the ordinary layman a priced sale catalogue of engravings is of small use, for it generally gives him little information concerning the quality or condition of the prints it records, and he is left wondering why it is that one impression of a plate should fetch £500, while another apparently exactly similar impression should fall to a bid of £10. Here it is that the Print Prices Current comes in, for its Editors, not content with repeating the particulars given in the catalogues, have added to them elucidatory details concerning all the puzzling items recorded. Thus the reader learns that the £500 item was a very fine impression with untrimmed margin, while its cheaper companion was both damaged and cut to the platemark. Such information doubles the value of the compilation and makes it of far greater utility than a set of priced catalogues. It is hardly necessary to say that in other respects also Print Prices Current, which has now reached its seventh volume, maintains the high standard set in former years. It is perhaps the best arranged publication of its kind for quick reference, while the information it contains is characterised by clarity, conciseness and accuracy, various misdescriptions contained in the original catalogues being corrected.
Not only are the sales in the leading London auction rooms recorded, but also those 'held in Edinburgh and Glasgow, an extension of scope which enables the collector or dealer to compare Metropolitan fashions and prices with those of the Provinces.
