Our spring auction will include a wide range of collectibles, from books and periodicals, to posters and apparatus. The catalog is in active preparation and is expected to be available for download and will ship on or about April first (and that's no joke!).
While much of the material for this sale is already in-house, there is still time to consign - but not much. Contact us immediately if you would like to consign.
The auction begins at 10am Central Time at our Chicago gallery.
