Sir John Gilmour library

Lyon & Turnbull, the Edinburgh auctioneers, are selling some volumes from the library of the late Sir John Gilmour, 2nd Baronet of Montrave and Secretary of State for Scotland from 1924-29. His son, also Sir John and a Tory MP, died last year.

The 'Books, Maps and Manuscript' sale is on 16 May and includes a copy of Winston Churchill's The World Crisis dedicated to Jack, as he was known, by the author. You can see more of the Gilmour library lots by clicking here.
