Charlie Davis forwarded this note on the results of yesterday's sale of numismatic literature.
The bellwether of the market has always been the plated Chapman catalogues, and yesterday's sale was no exception. A near mint H.P. Smith brought $8500 ($9800 with the buyer's premium). Taylor Windle brought $4250 ($4900 w/bp), a mint David Wilson $1550 ($1800), a Parsons with images cut from 3 plates brought $1200 ($1380) and a Lambert sale fetched $1400 ($1600).
Other highlights were a Crosby Early Coins of America in Crosby's binding at $3,000 ($3450) and A. Piatt Andrew's two-volume set of BEP Portrait & Vignettes at $5,000 ($5750). We should have the price list on our Vcoins web site Tuesday.
