Antiquarian Books

May 11, 2017

Letters from Alexander Hamilton were auctioned off for $2.6 million, but these aren't the first historic documents that have been valued for over $250,000. Many antique books and manuscripts have survived years of wear and tear through different methods of preservation. How do we keep these aging documents from deteriorating? 

Join us today as we discuss the sale and preservation of antique books and manuscripts. 

Guest:

  • Selby Kiffer​, Senior VP and International Senior Specialist of Books and Manuscripts Department, Sotheby’s

Event:

The Aldus Society presents Selby Kiffer on May 11, 2017  at the Thurber Center.
