拍卖简介

Valuable and Important Books and Manuscripts from the Library of Edward R. Leahy comprises the finest collection of modern illuminated manuscripts and jeweled and other magnificent bindings since the auction of Phoebe Boyle nearly a century ago, as well as important incunabula, English literature from Spenser to Tolkien with a particularly deep well of Charles Dickens and Samuel Johnson & his circle, works relating to Captain Bligh and the Mutiny on the Bounty, and a fine collection of horror including first editions of Frankenstein, Dracula, and a presentation copy of the Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde.

Quietly assembled with taste and discernment over more than a half century, the authors and the works are important, and the copies in this collection are particularly noteworthy for their extraordinary condition and provenance, coming from the greatest sales of the modern era, including a remarkable fourteen lots from Phoebe Boyle's collection as well as volumes from the libraries of Jerome Kern, A. Edward Newton, Paul Francis Webster, Estelle Doheny, H. Bradley Martin, Richard Manney, William E. Self, and Cornelius Hauck.
