Polly Beauwin of Richmond Autographs

Before starting Richmond Autographs, I worked for over twenty years at Maggs Bros in Berkeley Square, London where I trained under the late, great Hinda Rose. She had a good eye, a tremendous depth of knowledge and a lively wit, and it is a privilege to know that I can pass on at least some of her vast knowledge to new collectors. 

At Richmond Autographs, you will find a wide selection of letters, documents and photographs, covering history, literature, theatre, music, art and science, in English, French and sometimes German and Italian. The French Revolution and Napoleonic era is one particular specialist interest, and you will always find a good selection of material from this period here.


Updated catalogue lists will be sent out by email every few months with a selection of newly acquired items and other favourites. If you would like to receive these lists, please send me your email address or sign up using the Newsletter form at the bottom of the page. If you are looking for letters by or about a particular figure, era, or event please let me know - you never know what will turn up!


If you have inherited an autograph collection, or perhaps decided to change the focus of your collection, please do get in touch with me to discuss the possibilities. I am always happy to examine any letters or documents you may have, without obligation or fee to you.


The authenticity of the letters and documents offered is guaranteed. Should you be in any way dissatisfied with your purchase, items may be returned within six weeks of delivery and a full refund will be made upon receipt of the returned item. The item must be received by Richmond Autographs in the same condition as when dispatched.
