Sotheby's (New York)

The library of Richard Manney (catalogue for an auction conducted by Sotheby's, New York, 11 October 1991)

New York, Sotheby's, 1991
(27 cm), [340] pp., illustrations. 322 lots. Printed lists of estimates and results are loosely inserted. Publisher’s cloth binding, colour illustration laid to upper cover. - A collection put together in recent time at the top of the market, and sold because the vendor was in financial difficulties. “Everyone predicted gloom at the sale… But in the event it did pretty well” (saleroom report in The Book Collector, Spring 1992, p.94). Manney’s set of four Shakespeare folios (ex-The Garden Ltd, Sotheby’s New York, 9 November 1989, lot 100) was bought in at $1,200,000 (it passed subsequently through several hands, until sold in 1995 to Stuart Rose, Springboro, Ohio). ¶ Unmarked copy.
