In May 1860, due to financial problems, Baxter's plant, equipment, plates and blocks were put up for auction by Southgate and Barrett. They were not sold and Baxter carried on in business republising his works 'at vastly reduced prices'. On his retirement in 1865? again all his equipment and prints were put up for sale by auctioneer Mr Bean. Does anyone have ANY information relating to these sales that are over and above what is included in the 1920's publication 'Baxter Prints Pictorally Presented' which basically reviewed the 1860 auction - Can anyone help with information especially about the Bean auction?
