The Political Cartoon Collection of Jeffrey Archer

Sotheby’s is delighted to present The Political Cartoon Collection of Jeffrey Archer. Comprising 240 original artworks, this is one of the most significant collections of original cartoons in private hands.

The collection has been put together over the last 30 years as a joint enterprise between Lord Archer and illustration gallerist, Chris Beetles. From the first cartoon, acquired for the collection in 1986, to the last, care has been taken to build a comprehensive collection, presenting the best of over two centuries of an art form that seeks to record and satirise the world of politics. Sixty-two cartoonists are represented, including major artists such as Gillray, Cruikshank, Tenniel, Beerbohm, Shepard, Vicky, and Searle as well as the best living political cartoonists, including Peter Brookes, Gerald Scarfe and Ralph Steadman.

With estimates ranging from £200 to £20,000 there is truly something for every enthusiast of this important art form. The auction will be sold to benefit educational charities.

Addison & Sarova Auctioneers
Rare Books, Prints, Maps, & Ephemera
Sale #1018

There are only a handful of prints in the sale, but we would draw your attention to lot #22, being a rare Rembrandt etching. The consignor wanted to start the bidding low (sell! sell! sell!), and we've obliged with a low starting bid and a conservative estimate as well.

As with the prints, we have only a few maps in the sale, but pay close attention to lot #10 (quite rare.)

Following up on the November sale last year, we have another round of rare Biblesup for auction. These are from the same collection, and they represent the best of what remains from that consignment; so, get them now if you want them!

Also, be sure to take a look at the several books in this sale illustrated with hand-colored plates. You'll find those on the first page of the catalogue. These come from a rather nice collection, and the condition is notable as well.

Library of Congress Symposium
Imagining the Extraordinary: Scientific Illustration from the Renaissance to the Digital Age

Imagining the Extraordinary will explore how creative scientific illustration, often aided by advances in technology, has extended the reach of human understanding about the natural world. Knowledge about everything from the unimaginably large to the inconceivably small was initially nurtured by the popularity and availability of the printed image during and after the Renaissance. In a similar spirit of discovery, modern scientists have harnessed digital visualization techniques to nurture contemplation on everything from coral migration to the human genome.

Exploring the longstanding relationship between science and illustration, Imagining the Extraordinary will bring together historians, curators, artists, and librarians fluent in the visual vocabulary of the Renaissance and early modern period with modern scientists, technologists, and artists working in the same fields with new digital visualization tools. Scientific illustration provides a unique vantage from which to identify and discuss unifying concepts in scientific discovery, such as evidence and proof, artistic collaboration, imagining the unseen or the perplexing, and rendering images useful to multiple (and often skeptical) audiences. It is our hope that this symposium will provide an opportunity to bring together the many voices that have long been involved in condensing and animating the complexity of the natural world.
