    Default Hi

    Does anyone have a copy of the photos with a link that works? Also does anyone have any pictures of his board. Would have loved to have spent a day with him and his collection from what I have seen itís something else and a shame it didnít make it to a museum. Thanks Simon

    There is an article entitled "Locks and Keys" that appeared in Bygones 5 ​(1980) that was published by The Boydell Press. Pages 81 -105. Illustrated.

    Thumbs up

    So I am now the proud owner of Bygones 5 and the Sothebyís auction guide. The auction guide is great and has great quality pictures of the key and includes introduction with his boards as well as a picture of the man himself. The Bygones 5 book is a piece written by Peter Phillips about keys and locks with references to some nice lock and key photos albeit in black and white.

    Questions: what happened to the keys that werenít sold at auction? Iíve counted quite a few that were shown in boards but not included in the Sothebyís auction catalogue? Also what happened to the boards as I would have bought them they are a great display boxes. My collection is currently in file trays with clear Perspex lids (so similar but not as grand).

    Highly recommend both books for different reasons.
