Distinguished Collection of Dr. Utermohlen
Finger Lakes Estate and Auction Company is pleased to offer a selection of collectible and antique books, maps, ephemera, and artwork from the collections of the prominant Utermohlen family in addition to several distinguished private collections. Notable in this auction are the 17th-century Dutch and German works, bound in leather, vellum, and marbled paper-covered boards. Some volumes boast over 30 engravings and maps, such as the lavishly-illustrated “Het Gezantschap der Neerlandtsche Oost-Indische Compagnie” (1665) and "Naukeurige Beschryving der Eilanden, in de Archipel der Middelantsche Zee” (1688). Also of note is the edition of “Burning Bright” with John Steinbeck’s signature tipped in. In addition to the collectible books in this auction are a number of linen-backed movie posters and a few pieces of artwork. Finally, a Beatles ticket stub from their second appearance at Shea Stadium, and programs from Woodstock and the Fillmore East, round out these antique collections with some vintage appeal.
