Eight hundred+ items from the Veatchs’s stock, to be included in many New England Auctions sales continuing into 2024. In mid-November this will be the first sale that will include their material to appear.
New England Auctions took all of our current inventory that had been on our website. Fine printing and bindings, artists' books, lots of type foundry specimens; history of printing and related book arts. Plus reference books, including complete runs of major periodicals on book arts and printing history.
We had planned to send everything later this year for January through March auctions. However, an opportunity to move into this retirement community arose quickly. Paul will try to squeeze a few items into November and December. I believe our property will be identified as such.
New inventory [and there’s always more] will be in the same vein -- History and fine or interesting examples of the Book Arts. But examples different from our previous ones. We expect to continue issuing catalogues once re-settled (which can take a while for people in their 80s).
Their many friends and associates will follow the sales of their material with mixed emotions. We all wish you great success, while we hope to follow your careers into the future.
New England Auctions tend to post upcoming sales two weeks ahead. You can check with them or simply check our World-wide Upcoming Auction Lot Search.
