Rare collection of William Shakespeare “Troilus and Cressida” written back in the 1600s about the love affair between Troilus and Cressida during the Trojan Wars, valued at $15,000.

Tiles (6 Tiles) – The tiles were produced by Mintons Work’s Series and drawn by John Moyr Smith in 1872-1875. This collection is completed with all the 6 colours by John Moyr Smith. It took 30-40 years for Victor to collect all the tiles.

Books (5 Books and 4 Plate Posters) – A collection of a few books of Troilus and Cressida by Shakespeare, including the small ones dated back to 1774, are very rare and hard to find. Like the tiles, this collection of books took Victor about 30-40 years to collect.
