Pablo Neruda Collection Launched at Catawiki
Amsterdam — Thank goodness he adopted a pen name, as Ricardo Eliécer Neftalí Reyes Basoalto is quite a mouthful. We now have two Pablo Neruda auctions live for bids: “Pablo Neruda: Essential Works” and “Pablo Neruda: Rarities.” These auctions are from the private collection of a Spanish journalist. Collected over many years, in addition to some 250 books, most of them first editions signed and several dedicated by the author, the collection includes black and white photographs, handwritten poems and a variety of miscellaneous items. In short, one of the most comprehensive Neruda collections to come to market in recent years.
And our next Exclusive Collection
Our Exclusive Collection proved more popular with sellers and buyers than we could imagine. As a result, we are starting a regular “Exclusive Books & Manuscripts” auction. Our next will be held in early December It will begin on 27th November and end on 6th December 2020.
“Neruda is often considered the national poet of Chile, and his works have been popular and influential worldwide. We are very pleased to offer this collection Neruda material to the market. Gabriel García Márquez once called Neruda ‘the greatest poet of the 20th century in any language’ we are very pleased to give a wide audience an opportunity to experience first editions of his poetry.“ —Marc Harrison, Books & Cartography Category Manager
