The Rare Books, Autographs and Maps auction offered by Doyle will present items from the estates of Sylvia Miles and Florence and David Edelstein. Pieces from the Marian Sulzberger Heiskell and Andrew Heiskell Collection will also be available. Leading this auction is a bronze replica of the Winston Churchill monument located in London’s Parliament Square. This reduction of the full-sized statue stands around two feet tall and includes the original shipping crate.
Many signed documents are included in the auction, including letters, photographs, and papers from Abraham Lincoln, Albert Einstein, Billie Holiday, John F. Kennedy, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and many more. Beyond documents, antique American flags, books, periodicals, newspapers, and maps will be offered. One lot of interest is a bootlegger’s map of the United States, which is a colorful cartographic spoof on Prohibition. View any of these lots and register to bid at Doyle.
