Bloomsbury NY Kicks Off Sales

The New York showroom of Bloomsbury Auctions held its inaugural sale yesterday, the library of Pamela and Richard Estes (which I first mentioned here). The auction brought in $780,000 hammer price, with the Kelmscott Chaucer fetching $180,000. A 1909 Ashendene Press edition of Dante's works was sold for $57,600, well above estimates.
