In his autobiography, Steve Wozniak writes, “People who saw my computer could take one look at it and see the future. And it was a one-way door. Once you went through it, you could never go back.” This December, the History of Science and Technology Auction by Bonhams will include the first of Wozniak’s futuristic products that came to market. Signed by Wozniak himself, the Apple-I motherboard with an Apple II power connector is especially featured in this auction.
From Cray supercomputers to an Apple Macintosh prototype, the collection focuses on physical technology. Several antique manuscripts are also available, including Plato’s Timaeus and Critias translated into Latin by Marsilius Ficinus, as well as a copy of Albert Einstein’s letter to William Farrington. Many of the items in this auction provide insight into the development of science and technology in the modern era. View each of these lots and register to bid online on the Bonhams website.
