Writers who impacted generations to come
Books can take readers to places they’ve never seen, sparking the imagination and causing hope, fear, joy or somber rumination. Literature and books will be featured in our Fine Autographs and Artifacts auction in May 2018.
RR Auction has offered at auction items relating to American heavyweights like Hemingway, Melville, Poe and Thoreau; internationally renowned authors like Dickens and Orwell, Goethe and Wilde; and noted philosophic writers like Camus, Sartre and Voltaire. We have also had auction lots highlighting modern authors like J.K. Rowling, as well as many recipients of the Nobel Prize for Literature.
Bibliophiles, historians and rarities collectors alike have shown high interest in the category at past auctions. Some noteworthy sales in Literature and Books include:
- Extensive collection of Mario Puzo during his research for “The Godfather”: $625,000
- Letter from Edgar Allan Poe to Sarah Josepha Hale: $167,947
- Never before published personal correspondence by Lord Byron: $36,093
