Catching Up with Book Auctions.

To follow up with the book auctions I mentioned on June 10th:
  • Edgar Allan Poe's Tales (1845) went for $134,500 at Christie's on June 12th
  • It appears that a portion of the manuscript from Arthur Conan Doyle's His Last Bow went unsold at Sotheby's on June 19th
  • At Bloomsbury's June 19th auction, Robert Bloch's Psycho netted $1000, James M. Cain's Mildred Pierce went for $400, Conan Doyle's The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes went for $1500, and Patricia Highsmith's Strangers on a Train and The Talented Mr. Ripley netted $2200 and $1600 respectively. The William Goldman screenplays, including one for The Moving Target and a letter to Kenneth Millar, went unsold, as did George V. Higgins's typescript of "Mother's Day."
