She described herself as an auction addict: “I get sweaty palms, my heart starts beating faster, and I start glaring at anyone bidding against me. After her marriage to Martin Miller ended in divorce in 1992, Miller began a relationship with John Wainwright, and they had one son. Once a specialist for Bonhams and Sothebys, he is an expert on the BBC's Antiques Roadshow, and co-presents BBC2's Collectaholics.

The series made the couple a fortune – Martin Miller was nicknamed “the Richard Branson of the antiques world” – and spawned an empire of other standalone Miller guides, to porcelain, silver, Victoriana, and so on. Janet Gleeson worked at Sotheby’s and Bonhams as a picture specialist before joining Miller’s Guides as an editor. The plates were often broken, but they were a catalyst, inspiring Judith to visit the library to learn more about her finds.

We take pride in offering a wide selection of used books, from classics to hidden gems, ensuring there is something for every literary palate. I was homesick for Scotland so I bought Monart glass, then I got obsessed by Ronald Stennett-Willson’s candlesticks, then Murano birds. The thrill and excitement of discovering a valuable find can also spark an interest in developing a skill and a technique for collecting. The cover may have some limited signs of wear but the pages are clean, intact and the spine remains undamaged.

In 1985, this culminated in Chilston Park, a Grade I-listed house in Kent, empty for more than a decade, which he decided to turn into a hotel. Judith’s friends looked on, totally bewildered, when she got excited about 18th-century plates, and decorated her flat with piles of ceramics. She is an expert on the BBC's Antiques Roadshow, and has appeared on the Martha Stewart Show on CNN. But by 1992 the marriage was over – although they maintained a united front for the publishing business. s ~ * Binding and cover condition: Glossy illustrated and laminated colour photo-illustrated boards.Yet Judith Miller’s long and illustrious career in the world of antiques publishing had little to do with her family background. When Martin wanted to focus on property and hotels, Miller’s Publications was sold to Mitchell Beazley, but Judith remained as MD, overseeing the guides.

Lots of people were doing up houses at the time, so I wrote Period Details and, again, the book took off. Ideal for dealers, collectors and auctioneers, it contains 4000 objects, all in full colour with in-depth descriptions. I was doing up a house and felt it was really difficult to find out what cornices would have looked like in a house of this period. After my delightful event at The Blanchard Collective, I felt compelled to recommend it all to you here. Comprehensive sections cover Ceramics, Asian Antiques, Furniture, Glass, Silver and Metalwares, Jewellery and objets de vertu, Clocks and Watches, Books, Textiles, Toys, Decorative Arts and Modern Classics.

It is important that we continue to promote these adverts as our local businesses need as much support as possible during these challenging times.

This year's edition features special sections on tribal art, affordable jewellery and Hornsea ceramics.It has earned the reputation of being the book no dealer, collector or auctioneer should be without. She also turned her hand to books on interior design after a chance conversation with a designer friend, Jacqui Small. By the time Judith joined the Antiques Roadshow in 2007 she had already appeared in several TV programmes including The Antiques Trail and The House Detectives.
