Our library is simply too big for its own good and has actually become less useful due to the sheer volume of guides, auction catalogs and reference material it contains. So, you benefit! Here is round 2 and we are letting go of our holdings of very hard to find vintage auction catalogs. These often times have served as invaluable reference materials for us in years past and the information contained within is often found no where else. This is particularly true for the more niche categories.
This selection is of a higher quality and features mostly glossy thick cover Sotheby’s (New York and England) and Christie’s (New York, Geneva and London) catalogs with prices realized.
Your really buying a detailed unique price guide with these catalogs with detail that eclipses most off the shelf price guides.
All catalogs feature an over generous amount of highly detailed professional photographs in Color and Black and White. With few (if any, we don’t believe so but we have not gone through page by page) exceptions, all items are usually pictured. Page shown strictly a random selection (and at 4 A.M. at that!) so don’t make your judgement based on the single picture. Feel free to ask if your items of interest are included and we will do our best to leaf through.
06/05/1999 with 404 lots and prices realized. Highly sought after catalog category due to rarity and scarcity of market items. Also features Islamic Works of Art mentioned on inside cover.
