Swann Galleries – The Eric C. Caren Collection: How History Unfolds on Paper, Part 1

September 14th, 2011 by

On September 15th Swann will hold the first of three planned auctions offering historic material from the personal collection of Eric C. Caren, under the title “How History Unfolds on Paper.” This first sale crosses the boundaries of Swann’s regularly scheduled auctions. Although most of it could be described as Americana, dozens of lots are in the realm of English history, with a few from continental Europe, Australia, and Japan. The formats go well beyond our usual books and manuscripts, including newspapers, posters, broadsides, photographs, and maps.
