Valuable Books and Manuscripts
The Valuable Books and Manuscripts sale showcases book illustration through the centuries, beginning with medieval miniatures from one of the finest Continental private collections and concluding with original drawings by Quentin Blake. Highlights along the way include 36 works from an American bibliophile collection, led by the magnificent Oudry edition of La Fontaine’s Fables; cartography, including a rare celestial globe by Dutch master mapmaker Willem Blaeu; and such curiosities as the first printed Christmas card (1843) and George Maciunas’s Fluxus 1, a printed work of Conceptual art, its striking ‘illustrations’ including a surgical glove.
The sale also celebrates two very different anniversaries in English literature: the bicentenary of the death of the great poet John Keats, recalled by a death mask and a posthumous portrait by his friend Joseph Severn, and the centenary of Agatha Christie’s first detective novel, The Mysterious Affair at Styles, introducing the inimitable Hercule Poirot.
