Books and Ephemera - Woolf, Morris, etc.
This auction will include a wide variety of books and ephemera items from area estates and consignments. The books range from special, limited editions to large groups of excellent dealer and reading stock. We have been sorting several estates which have come in to our gallery over the past few months and a number of important books have surfaced including author-inscribed books by Virginia Woolf and Rudyard Kipling and a number of early northeast United States antique historical works. Among those historical volumes is a private binding of 1786 printings of New York City's charter and by-laws, inscribed by Robert Morris (signer of the United States Declaration of Independence, the Articles of Confederation and the United States Constitution).
