Another Heritage Book Auction
Heritage Auction is having another of their big book Auctions April 11.
There are a few notable SF/F/H works listed:
Another Asbestos-bound copy of Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451.
Another signed copy of Philip K. Dick’s Confessions of a Crap Artist.
A copy of H.P. Lovecraft’s The Outsider and Others with perhaps the nicest dust jacket (an original, not the de la Ree facsimile) I’ve ever seen offered for sale.
The signed, limited first edition of Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World
The first Stephen King book he ever signed, an incribed ARC of Carrie.
A first edition of Bram Stoker’s Dracula, with a signed letter from Stoker laid in.
There’s also some signed Thomas Pynchon, which almost never comes on the market, including:
The Crying of Lot 49
An ARC of a later edition of V
Plus the notoriously fragile Shakespeare and Company true first edition (in wrappers) of James Joyce’s Ulysses.
But the main strength of the auction is in non-fiction, including first editions of:
Adam Smith’s An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations.
Charles Darwin’s On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection
A beautifully bound subscriber’s edition of T.E. Lawrence’s Seven Pillars of Wisdom
Not to mention several Isaac Newton first editions, plus a whole lot of important economic and military first editions.
