Auction Details: Following the tremendous success of our January 2017 sale of Alexander Hamilton: An Important Family Archive of Letters & Manuscripts, the Books and Manuscripts Department is again joining our colleagues in participating in Americana Week. The sale is particularly strong in significant color-plate books and views, atlases, and maps—including an important private collection of maps of the American West.
