Roald Dahl and Stephen King First Editions Led the Way at National Book Auctions

The September 9, 2017 sale at National Book Auctions featured a wide array of books and ephemera, with particular focus on children's literature and modern firsts.

A signed first edition of Roald Dahl's "Boy" brought $1,187 against a high estimate of $500 and a signed first edition of Stephen King's "IT" brought $1,000 against a high estimate of $400, likely due to renewed curiosity surrounding the release of the major motion picture adaptation.

The sale also featured colonial American pamphlets, vintage science fiction pulp magazines, cased ambrotype portraits, illustration art, and vellum volumes dating back to the early 17th century.

Further complementary material will be offered in future sessions throughout the fall and winter of 2017. For more information on bidding or consigning, email evan@worthauctions.com or call 607-279-0607.
