Neue Auctions' Online-Only Sale, April 25th, Features Art,

Beachwood, Ohio, USA, April 16, 2020 -- Neue Auctions' online-only auction of collections and ephemera on Saturday, April 25th, will be packed with 340 lots of books, library furnishings, Natural History and orthinological (bird-related) prints, works on paper, assorted estate goods and a single-owner collection of collectible knives. There will be no live bidding and the start time is 9 am Eastern.

"In this strange and grim time of COVID-19, we need to reach for and retain the parts of our former life wherever we can," said Cynthia Maciejewski of Neue Auctions. "Luckily, we still have online auctions, and the trade in fine and rare and interesting goods can continue. We're doing our best to manage selling and shipping to customers as well as serving our consignors."

Maciejewski said the April sale is bigger than originally planned. "We put everything scheduled for the May auction into the April sale just to be safe, because the future is so uncertain," she commented. "Our tagline - 'Auctions Evolved' - is certainly coming true as we recreate our business model to continue working while social distancing. We're living in a different world."

Collectible books from the family of a Civil War general and an antique dealer's personal library are certain to appeal to bibliophiles. Included will be rare children's illustrated books and books dedicated to Civil War and related military themes, American history, government, slavery and abolitionists, American geology with fold-out maps, and rare first editions, including leather sets.

Presidential and militaria items will be led by an autographed letter signed by Ulysses S. Grant, a letter signed by Woodrow Wilson, George W. Bush autographs and collectibles relating to the Civil War and World Wars I and II.

The antique maps category will be highlighted by Willem Janszoon Blaeu (1571-1638) Valentia c.1662, Gales and Hurricanes, from the Admiral Perry expedition of 1855, as traced by William Redfield; and Disposition of the English and French Fleets at the commencement of the Action, August 1st, 1798 from the memoirs of Lord Nelson. Other desirable maps will also be offered.

Rare, highly collectible books will include a collection of works by Helen Bannerman, Little Black Sambo volumes, Andrew Lang's The Brown Fairy Book and others, as well as 17th and 18th century books with maps, including The Ladies Flora, with a dictionary and glossary of botanical names by Richard La Galienne, with 18 hand colored plates. The in-depth study of floral lore, literature, cultivation and home and medical use has a pre-sale estimate of $100-200.

Other noteworthy books include Histoire De La Guerre De Mil Sept Cent Quarante Et Un by Francois-Marie Arouet Voltaire (est. $100-$150); a Book Regarding the History of the Constitution with Anti-Abolitionist Tracts; Slavery in American History (est. $150-$300); and three 19th century books regarding privateers, naval combat and Lord Nelson (est. $100-$200).

"If we can't be free to fly as we're used to, we might as well study our feathered friends from our shelters through ornithological prints," Ms. Maciejewski commented, referring to a collection of Amsterdam Edition prints from John James Audubon's book Birds of America, in nine lots, double elephant folio size (est. $200-$400 per lot). The book was published in 1972 in an edition of 250 on high quality watermarked Holland wove paper of 100 percent unbleached cotton rag.

Also up for bid will be first edition (1840-1844) and second edition (1856) Royal Octavo plates from Audubon's The Birds of North America From Drawings made in the United States and Their Territories; Edward Lear's (British 1812-1888) Black Kite, Milvus Ater, hand-colored lithograph, printed by C. Hollande (British 1789-1850) matted and framed (est. $200-$400); and three Pierre Joseph Redoute hand-finished plates, each with an estimate of $2,000-$3,000.

Other lithographs will include John Gould's (British 1804-1881) Short Eared Owl, 1832-1837, from Birds of Europe, hand-colored and printed by C. Hullmandel (British, 1789-1850 est. $200-400); and four framed reptile lithographs in decorative frames from Emory's Report of the United States and Mexican Boundary Survey by William Emory, Reptiles, 1859, matted and framed in eglomise and gilt hand-painted decorative tortoise shell pattern frames (est. $400-$600).

The many antique engravings, lithographs, etchings and original works in the sale include examples by Rembrandt, Cantu, Hollar, Mahn, Guerard, van de Velde, Holden and others.
