Our 2019 auction catalog is available at this link! There are some very interesting and unusual books, and the opportunity to obtain some extraordinarily rare titles at a reasonable price. (Including a first edition of Beatrix Potter’s A Tale of Tom Kitten, a copy of the memorial tome from John Patterson’s funeral, a first edition of Isaac Asimov’s The Naked Sun. Quite a few pieces of local interest, including the first publication of Paul Laurence Dunbar’s “Joggin’ Erlong” in the old Cosmopolitan Magazine (which also includes the first printing of a Jack London short-story) Happy Reading!
New this year! Some titles will be available as “buy it now” and can be purchased prior to the end of the sale. (However, there is no mechanism to buy these prior to the Fair.) (During or after the fair we are willing to take telephone orders for these books, but we are still not able to take auction bids by telephone.)
Auction items will be available for examination as soon as the sale opens at 9 a.m. on Friday, November 8th. For most books, the auction will end at 6 p.m. on Saturday, November 9th. In the instance where there is active bidding on a book at 6 p.m., bids will be taken until 5 minutes elapses with no new bids.
