Rare Autographs, Manuscripts & Books Auction
A large historic pen sketch hand-drawn and signed by Apollo XI astronaut Neil Armstrong, a manuscript fragment in George Washington’s hand from the first draft of his first Inaugural Address in 1789, and the Black-Scholes-Merton formula handwritten and signed by Nobel Prize-winning economist Robert C. Merton are just a few of the expected superstar lots in University Archives’ online-only auction slated for Wednesday, September 28th, at 10:30 am Eastern time. The Rare Autographs, Manuscripts & Books auction features historical material from multiple collecting categories. All 415 lots are up for viewing and bidding now (on the University Archives website: www.UniversityArchives.com), plus LiveAuctioneers.com, Invaluable.com and Auctionzip.com. Phone and absentee bids will be taken, but there’s no live gallery bidding. “Our September auction offers collectors, dealers, and institutions the opportunity to acquire outstanding autographed material, relics, photographs and more,” said John Reznikoff, president and owner of University Archives. “Sale highlights in the Science & Space, U.S. Presidents, and Military History collecting categories will draw significant interest. Premier items can also be found in the Music, Early American, International, and World Leaders collecting categories.” For more information about University Archives and the auction on Wednesday, Sept. 28 at 10:30 am Eastern, visit www.universityarchives.com.
