Quinn’s Auction Galleries will offer a selection of rare books, vintage maps, and Americana in their upcoming auction. Representing Presidential and American history is an 1864 document signed by Abraham Lincoln. It confirms the military appointment of Elliot Loues. Among the available books, a key lot is Dorothy Lamour’s Life as a Phrase Book by Noelle Janaczweska. This edition is among only 25 copies that were published and includes the signature of Mike Hudson, who conceived, designed, and illustrated the book.
Also featured are limited edition copies of Lewis Carroll’s Through the Looking Glass and signed books by Virginia Woolf and Andy Warhol. The auction will present over 150 maps as well. Of these, a hand-colored, engraved map of the New York area by cartographer Nicolas Visscher is notable. Firearms, atlases, lithographs, and photographs will also be a part of the sale.
