Auction News - Edward Gorey at Swann

On Wednesday May 7 longtime collector Sam Speigel is offering his extensive collection of Edward Gorey books and related material at Swann Auction Galleries in New York City.

In an auction that should be subtitled Edward Gorey A to Z, Mr. Speigel is offering almost every deluxe limited edition publication produced by Edward Gorey throughout his career. Most of these titles are one of 26 copies lettered A to Z, and often feature special bindings and goodies such as hand coloring. The second half of Mr. Speigel's collection will be offered by Swann in the fall. 

With 130 lots featuring the rare and unusual, this auction and its catalog are sure to be referenced for years to come. To view lots, or to purchase the catalog, visit Swann HERE.
