The Gentleman's Library Sale at Bonhams

If you are not the sort of chap the Hovey sisters are likely to invite for cocktails, but still have a taste for the exotic, may I suggest a quick on-line visit to Bonhams auction Wednesday.

Stuffed animals, travel accessores, shells, buttons and gimcracks of all kinds. Just the kind of clutter so perfect for a erudite gentleman's quarters.
