The Joel L. Malter Ancient Art Library
"One of the best privately owned libraries of its type anywhere in the world". It took a lifetime for Joel L. Malter to put together this large and comprehensive, top quality library encompassing ancient art from all over the world. The auction includes 1,653 lots of books and related literature and concludes with a fabulous six foot tall wooden coin cabinet and an oil on canvas from the circle of Salomon Konick (1609-1659) "Merchants Counting Money". The books are mostly out of print and in top quality; many with museum quality bindings! Many books and sets of books are extremely rare and highly valued by those individuals interested in that specific subject matter. This is an equally rare opportunity to acquire books of this importance and scarcity. Good luck!
