Ella Hall

  • AVP | Specialist
New York


Ella Hall began her career in Amherst, Massachusetts, working for private collectors and fine letterpress printers. Since joining Sotheby’s in 2013, she has been involved in a series of record-setting sales, including the category defining auctions of the Bay Psalm Book in 2013 ($14.2 million), the 2021 auction of the first printing of the United States Constitution ($43.2 million), and the 2023 sale of the earliest most complete Hebrew Bible, Codex Sassoon ($38.1 million). In addition to her work in the field of Books & Manuscripts, she has lead projects in related collecting categories, best exemplified by the 2021 auction of Three Treasures collected by Stuart Weitzman, which achieved $32 million in just three lots: the 1933 Double Eagle, The Inverted Jenny Plate Block, and the British Guiana One-Cent Magenta.

Beyond these professional achievements, throughout her tenure at Sotheby’s Ms. Hall has completed three courses at Rare Book School in Charlottesville, Virginia, and is pursuing a master’s degree at Hunter College in New York.
