Book sale of the century…or so

In possibly the most eclectic book sale ever at the end of July, a selection of books from the library of the remarkable Arthur Hacker MBE (1932-2013) – artist, historian, cartoonist and creator of the Lap Sap Chung – were up for grabs.

There were literally thousands of unusual books about China, Hong Kong, Macau, Asia and the UK with topics like history, culture, heraldry, humour, design, poetry, coffee table books and novels. And the prices were reasonable too: HK$10 for paperbacks and HK$20 for hardbacks.
