QUERY: ELDER'S 87TH PUBLIC AUCTION SALE CATALOG SOUGHT

Katie Jaeger submitted the following research query. Can anyone help? -Editor

C.C. Wright San Francisco Rescuer's Medal I have an inquiry for your readers: Does anyone own Thomas L. Elder's 87th Public Auction Sale catalog (943 lots) from December 10, 1913? If so, I would love to see a scan or photocopy for research purposes (targeting a feature article in Smithsonian Magazine). Thanks!

It's a sale of items on behalf of the family of New York engraver C.C. Wright. I'm always collecting Wright information when I get the chance. I had known about the family's donations to the New York Public Library, and about the library's auction of the collection in the 1980s (Dave Bowers handled the sale) but I had not been aware of a prior Wright family sale. I happened on a listing of Elder sales in Google Books.

Pictured above with permission from Fred Holabird is an image of a C.C. Wright designed San Francisco Rescuer's medal, taken from the holabirdamericana.com web site. Thanks! -Editor
