12 Highlights from The Maurice F. Neville Collection of Modern Literature (Part III)

By Sotheby's

T hirteen years after a two-part sale of the Maurice F. Neville Collection of Modern Literature set numerous author and genre records comes Part III, smaller than its predecessors, but equally as interesting. This part includes many significant 20th century authors, of course: Dylan Thomas, Hemingway and Fitzgerald, and even Charles Bukowski. But the sale also features a fine group of attractively bound and frequently extra-illustrated sets of standard authors, as well as a section of "Miscellany" – including sports, history, travel and popular music – that will give an idea of the range of Neville’s many interests beyond modern literature. Click ahead for a closer look at twelve can't-miss highlights.
