The upcoming Fine Books, Maps, and Manuscripts auction offered by Revere Auctions will present a collection of books, documents, maps, and atlases.

Leading the auction is a first edition copy of The Thousand Nights and a Night by Sir Richard Burton. The BBC describes Burton as a Victorian explorer and writer who craved adventure, which inspired many of his books. In this sale, an early map of California by Pieter Goos is also available. The hand colored map from 1666 depicts two ships sailing the ocean, as well as two highly decorative compass roses. Another available lot is a United States first edition copy of Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë. It includes handwritten and penciled notes on the title page.
