The Late Michael Walters – Book and Scores Collection –
Sales to Members
Michael Walters wished his collection of Gilbert and Sullivan related books and scores to pass to The Gilbert & Sullivan Society.
The Executive Committee of The G&S Society has agreed that the books and scores should be offered first to members of our Society. A full catalogue, with details of item condition, has been placed as an electronic listing on the Society website together with a bidding form.
Members who wish to purchase specific items should list them, along with the price they are willing to pay, on the bidding form. The highest bid will secure the item. Forms should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Bidding is restricted to full members of The G&S Society but the electronic listing is open to view by all. Non-members of The G&S Society should bid through a Society member or join The G&S Society.
Bidding will open on 1st September 2018 and must be received by The G&S Society Sales Office by Saturday 29th September 2018. Once completed bids are received successful bidders will be invoiced with the total cost of their purchases and an amount to cover postage and packing. Invoices will be sent out during October 2018. Payment is required within two weeks of receipt of invoice by the buyer.
Items will be dispatched once the invoice is paid. Receipts less post and packing costs will benefit The G&S Society. Payment will be by cheque only. Bidders who are not successful will be notified.
By this means it is hoped that Michael’s wishes for the future use of the books and scores can be achieved.
