The upcoming Fine Books & Manuscripts auction, offered by Potter & Potter Auctions, will include photographs, posters, and fine art in addition to written works. Among the books available in the sale are several early and rare editions of Ian Fleming’s novels, especially those from the James Bond series. Featured is a first edition copy of Casino Royale, the first of Fleming’s Bond books. Just over 4,500 copies of this edition were printed, most of which have been committed to public libraries.
One of the art pieces up for bid is a nuclear disarmament poster by Keith Haring. The poster is signed in ink by the artist and inscribed “For Ken/ Keith Haring/ 82.” Also above the inscription is what appears to be a second signature by Haring on the black printed area of the piece. Other items of interest include art by Joan Miró, an 18-inch merchant shippers globe, the Oxford Uniform Edition of The Writings of Oscar Wilde, a trio of erotic Japanese netsuke figures, and more. View any of these lots and register to bid at Potter & Potter Auctions.
