“The 2012 Petrie book auction has just started. If you have previously registered to receive the list you should have already received this notification and the first list from Petrie Books and you do not need to register again. If you are a new member, or would like to register for the first time, or have changed your email address just send an email with ‘subscribe’ to: email@example.com. Thank you for subscribing to the Petrie book auction – remember that you can ‘unsubscribe’ at any time.
The email auction will culminate on the evening of 12 October with a live auction. The auction is open to all and will be held at the Petrie Museum, Malet Place WC1. Viewing from 6.00, auction starts at 6.30
The complete list is sent out with starting prices on all volumes inviting bids (BID?). As bids come in the bid is listed with the bidder’s initials alongside, e.g. GBP 10 (JP). TO BID, please either cut and paste title with your bid added, or give me the book number(s) and your bid. Please don’t return the entire list
– unless you’re bidding on everything! Regular updates on the state of the bidding will be sent out. All bids should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
Closing date for email bids will be Wednesday 10 October. All bids will be carried forward to the evening of 12 October. No books will be sold before that date so that Friends and others not on email will have a chance to participate.
All prices will be plus postage, payable in advance in GB pounds by cash, UK cheque, or overseas bankers cheque drawn on a UK bank, (or Post Office Giro-cheques from Europe are reasonably priced, or postal orders) so please bear that in mind when making your bid. Sorry, but we don’t have the facilities to accept direct credit card payment although we can accept payment via PAYPAL. Books can be collected from the Museum by prior arrangement.
