Heritage Highlights

Einstein, Newton, Austen, Dickens, Melville, Beethoven -- what do these folks have in common? They're some of the stars of Heritage Auction Galleries' October 14 sale in Beverly Hills. Of course, there's also the Hemingway, which Heritage rare books manager Joe Fay wrote about last month. One of the top lots is sure to be Edward S. Curtis' portfolio, The North American Indian (one image seen here at left, courtesy of Heritage). Opening bid is $50,000. The first collected edition of the Federalist Papers is also sure to garner attention when it opens at $70,000.
