Doyle - Timed Online Only
Travel & Sport in India & Asia from the Library of Arnold 'Jake' Johnson

Following the recent success of the online sales of property from the collection of Arnold “Jake” Johnson (1930-2017), Doyle is pleased to offer an impressive array of books relating to Travel and Sport in India and Asia from the same collection. The current sale comprises over 250 lots of books and is offered as a timed online-only auction on Doyle.com. Bidding will open on Thursday, February 28 and close on Thursday, March 14, 2019 beginning at 12pm EST. The public is invited to view the books at Doyle from 10am-5pm on Friday, March 8; Monday, March 11; and Tuesday, March 12. Doyle is located at 175 East 87th Street in Manhattan.

A true bibliophile, Johnson was an inveterate collector of rare items related to angling, travel, expeditions in India and Africa, English sporting and color-plate, 19th century big game hunting, and Western Americana. His collection includes hundreds of rare books, hand-written accounts of hunting expeditions, striking examples of 19th century photographic travel albums, and elusive bibliographies and facsimiles of major works. This remarkable and extensive collection, numbering in the thousands of volumes, is being offered an ongoing series of live and online auctions.
