Christie's Fine Photobooks From An Important Private Collection Photography
Those of you with deep pockets will be interested to know that there is another Christie's auction coming up on Thursday, April 10, 2008. This is being touted as the greatest photo book auction to date. All of the 200 lots come from an "important private collection" in which some of the rarities of photography book history have been amassed and all of which are supposedly in very fine condition. What additionally makes many of these extra special is the fact they are signed or are association copies. For instance should you have an estimated $40,000 you might be the highest bidder for a copy of Brassai's Fine PhotobooksParis De Nuit signed to Andre Kertesz from Brassai. Oh -- and many come housed in a custom-made cloth folding box with foil stamped titles and information on the spine.
