Seldom does one come across an auction that caters for so many tastes as Fonsie Mealy’s online sale this week. The lots run the gamut from the sublime, a fine copy of Part II of WB Yeats’s memoirs, The Trembling of the Veil, in its original dust jackets (€600-€800), to the delightfully daft, a Guinness Toucan table lamp (€150-€200). Bidding is now underway, ending on May 5.
