Catalogues from the 1880s to the present day from all the major auction houses.

NEW DIGITAL SCANNING SERVICE - 40,000 AUCTION HOUSE CATALOGUES FROM 1950 TO DATE, NOW AVAILABLE FOR RESEARCH. The Catalogstar has scanned 40,000 catalogues so that provenance, exhibition, publication and essays are all available by digital scan. This is critical to researching provenance, which is increasingly important to underpinning value and avoiding title disputes, fakes and fraud.

Catalogues from leading auction houses around the world, including Sotheby's, Christie's, Bonhams, Phillips have been scanned into the database. The cost is £5 for a scanned lot with discounts on volume. TO ORDER YOUR SCAN, SIMPLY NAVIGATE TO THE RELEVANT CATALOGUE AND GO TO CHECKOUT, OR ORDER THROUGH OUR SCANNING SERVICE PAGE, BELOW.

We have significantly added to number of catalogues containing the indexes of artists whose work was sold in the auction. More than ever before you will be able to look for either obscure or well known artists listed in the catalogues we sell simply by using the artist's name as the search term. No other site offers this facility.

Shipping is calculated on the basis of the specific weight of each order and parcels are dispatched daily. Currently we offer mail shipping to every country. You also have the option of a courier service if you wish to get your catalogue(s) urgently. Please consult Shipping Rates and Times for further information. Our envelopes and parcels are sent from our new customized facility in New Delhi, India, though we are a VAT registered UK company based in Westbury.

We have acquired the archive of a major art and antique research service who no longer have use for their thousands of catalogues. Many of these have ticks and marks within them. This is clearly indicated in the description of each catalogue and if you are simply looking for information this will allow you to acquire catalogues in imperfect state at discount prices - see Condition of Catalogues for illustrations and details.
