2010 has been a banner year for auctions featuring the works of Edward Gorey. The autumn sales at Pacific Book Auction and Swann Auction Galleries are behind us, but a unique auction is coming up on December 9th at Bloomsbury Auctions in New York.
This auction showcases 14 fur coats once owned and worn by Mr. Gorey, which are being auctioned individually. Also included are many bundled lots of books written and/or illustrated by EG (including one grouping of books by John Bellairs), a piece of original artwork, and ephemera. Proceeds from this auction will benefit the Edward Gorey Charitable Trust and the Edward Gorey House.
