Lawrence C. Wroth: Pioneer of the "Bibliographical Way"
A talk by Richard Ring,
Head Curator of the Watkinson Library at Trinity College, Hartford, Connecticut

Scholar-Librarian Lawrence C. Wroth (1884-1970) was an acknowledged authority of colonial American history, bibliography, and cartography. A learned wordsmith who for 65 years generated seminal works on the history and print cultures of the Americas, Wroth directed the John Carter Brown Library at Brown University for nearly four decades, was a consultant to the Library of Congress for 11 years, and to the Pierpont Morgan Library for over 30 years. This talk on his life and career will be given in celebration of Ring's 2016 publication of a selection of Wroth's "Notes for Bibliophiles," a column which appeared in the New York Herald Tribune in the 1930's and 40's. Only a few copies remain available. Interested Ticknorites can contact him directly at Richard.Ring@trincoll.edu for more information.

Alexander Hamilton: An Important Family Archive of Letters and Manuscripts

Never truly forgotten, Alexander Hamilton, one of America’s previously neglected founding fathers, has recently achieved a level of fame, and even celebrity, not seen since his own brief but momentous lifetime. Starting with the inclusion, 2001, of a wide-ranging selection of Hamilton’s letters, essays, and government papers in the canonical Library of America series; continuing with Ron Chernow’s prize-winning and best-selling biography, Alexander Hamilton, 2004; and culminating with Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Broadway phenomenon Hamilton, which won eleven Tony Awards earlier this year, Alexander Hamilton now stands with Washington, Jefferson, Adams, Franklin, and Madison in terms of familiarity—and probably eclipses them all in terms of popularity.

Just reading the register of Hamilton’s achievements is exhausting: mercantile clerk, college student, poet, artillery captain, adjutant to General Washington during the Revolutionary War, congressman, abolitionist, founder of the Bank of New York, New York state assemblyman, member of the Constitutional Convention and the New York Ratifying Convention, essayist responsible for the majority of the Federalist Papers and all of the Pacificus Papers, first Secretary of the Treasury, founder of the New York Post, major general in the army, a titanic force in the country’s first four presidential elections—and the father of eight.

Sotheby’s is privileged to offer for sale a highly important family archive of manuscripts by and relating to Alexander Hamilton which touch on virtually every phase of his extraordinary life.

Winter Antiques Show
The Winter Antiques Show marks its 63rd year as the most prestigious art, antiques, and design fair in America, featuring the “best of the best” from Antiquity through the present. Held at the historic Park Avenue Armory in New York City, the Show provides new and established collectors, curators, dealers, and design professionals with opportunities to view and purchase exceptional pieces showcased by 73 exhibitors. One-third of the Show’s exhibitors are specialists in Americana, with the rest featuring English, European, and Asian fine and decorative arts.

Every object exhibited at the Winter Antiques Show is vetted for authenticity, date, and condition by a committee of 160 experts from the United States and Europe. The strict vetting regulations and the vettors’ expertise ensure that buyers can purchase with confidence.

The Winter Antiques Show is an annual benefit for East Side House Settlement, a community resource in the South Bronx that celebrates its 125th anniversary in 2016. East Side House’s programs focus on education and technology as gateways out of poverty and as the keys to economic opportunity. All revenues from the show’s general admissions and the net proceeds from the preview parties and other events go East Side House and contribute substantially to its private philanthropic budget. No part of sales made by exhibitors is received by East Side House.

Bande Dessinée / Comics

The fourth instalment of our Comics sale in Paris features over 60 treasures from the history of the artform. Among these masterpieces are works from three masters of the golden age of European comics: Franquin, Hergé and Uderzo.

Executed by Franquin in 1958, the truly exceptional plate of Spirou et les petits formats is bursting with life. The eponymous protagonist of the comic is depicted alongside Marsupilami, a fascinating animal that Franquin liked to depict “au naturel” with a combination of candor, vitality and mischievousness. Franquin creates a detailed scene without overworking it and, with the help of fellow artist Jean Roba, concentrates on drawing the reader’s eye to the action. Of particular interest are his use of shadow and the way he plays with the exposed stonework and outlines buildings in the background.

Have you ever dreamed of drawing with Hergé? Thanks to the original work in our sale your dream could come true! The main characters from the Adventures of Tintin are all depicted on a painter’s palette, and it is the inclusion of all six here that makes this work so desirable. Originally published in 1957, the work was designed for the cover of a colouring book. The striking modernity of this illustration just goes to show Hergé's interest in painting and his talent as a poster artist.

The extract from Le Devin is more than just a cartoon board, it is a joy. It reveals the genius of Astérix’s creator Uderzo at staging scene, but also his comic talent and his skill at depicting movement. When Obélix’s dog Idéfix leaps onto his master, the reader is left in no doubt as to what is happening. Equally, in the subsequent box, Obélix’s anger is represented by wisps of air, but also by the appearance of the lettering and the speech bubble. Uderzo leaves nothing to chance, even paying homage to Rembrandt’s painting The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Nicolaes Tulp.
