Our 24 June auction A Rock & Roll History: Presley to Punk achieved $4.1 million. Leading the sale and selling above the high estimate for $2.1 million was Bob Dylan’s working autograph manuscript for the lyrics as recorded for "Like A Rolling Stone," shown here, in pencil with original doodles and marginal notes,on the Hotel Roger Smith letterhead.
In A Rock & Roll History: Presley to Punk, Sotheby’s will offer important manuscripts from a Bob Dylan masterpiece, to Jim Morrison’s Miami bail bond and Jimi Hendrix’s infamous first contract, that illuminate the golden years of rock music history. The iconography of the music is featured with Rock Photography and vintage tour and promotional posters from Elvis Presley, The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Cream and Bruce Springsteen.
