Antiques & Collectibles in auction news

Hingham history goes on the block again when Willis Henry holds the third auction of the collections of the late John P. Richardson, an environmentalist, historian, and owner of the Hingham Book House in the 1970s and ’80s.

Richardson, who had a longtime passion for collecting “everything Hingham,” particularly objects that told the story of how people lived and worked in the years leading up to the 1900s, died in February 2011 at 76.
