Re: the new Bonhams website, they seem to have got rid of their facility to search through past lots, although, weirdly, you can still search past auction titles. For example, I am interested in the landscape artist Francis Towne, so a search for "Towne" in past auctions brings up one result: a 2005 'Collections from Town & Country Houses' sale in Edinburgh that has, er, nothing to do with Towne.

Another reader writes, in an email meant for someone else but copied to me by mistake:

"The reader of your posting about Bonhams' new website clearly didn't try very hard.

You can search for any lot sold by Bonhams since 2003 and yes, you can still see the images of these lots.

I'm guessing, but I think he might have had something to do with the design of the new site...
