An auction of the rarest Derrydale Press titles will take place at Christies in New York on December 7. It includes Magic Hours (stated by some sources to be the most important Derrydale of all), Atlantic Salmon Fishing, A Book of Trout Flies and American Big Game Fishing. The sale, from the Le Vivier library, is said to be the finest collection of Derrydale titles in private hands, and is an almost complete set of the 169 titles, mostly in superb condition, with many de luxe editions. It includes original manuscripts and drawings, printing plates and rare ephemera. There are also many other rarities, such as Charles Cotton and his River by Gerald Heywood (1928). Derrydale Press was set up by Eugene Connett III in 1927.
