Sticking to its usual Thursday auction schedule but changing venue, PBA will host The Book Fair Century: One Hundred Fine Books & Manuscripts on February 7, beginning at 11 a.m. at the Oakland Marriott. Part of the sale will benefit the ABAA Benevolent Fund, which provides financial support for scholarly research and education relevant to the antiquarian book trade. Sale highlights include a first edition of Madeleine L’Engle’s 1963 Newbery Medal winner, A Wrinkle in Time, in dust jacket, estimated at $5,000-8,000, and a rare, French Boccaccio set with 20 added erotic plates, from 1757-1761, estimated at $4,000-7,000.
