The Exceptional Literature Collection of Theodore B. Baum
Mr Baum's library of literary first editions is among the finest ever assembled and particularly strong in works by English and American authors—from Edmund Spencer and John Milton in the 16th & 17th centuries through Jonathan Swift (including the Berland copy of Gulliver's Travels), Jane Austen (including the Kern copy of Mansfield Park, in original boards from a lending library), Charlotte Brontë, and Charles Dickens in the 18th & 19th centuries, all the way to Kurt Vonnegut, Toni Morrison, and much more in the 20th century. The library, more than 500 volumes, was assembled by Mr Baum with love and care over the course of decades, as he worked with top dealers in the field to find the greatest copies of the most beloved books.
