Reminder that Swann Galleries is having their last Photobook (Photographic Literature) auction for the year on December 9th, 2010, in NYC. This auction is concurrent with a photographic print auction.

One photobook of interest: a signed copy of Andy Warhol’s America (estimate:  $2,000 -3,000) and Index (estimate:  $2,500 – 3,500)

Also various numbers of  Alfred Stieglitz’s Camera Work are available, as well as the Stieglitz Memorial Portfolio, 1864-1946 from the estate of Pirkle Jones.

Photobooks on auction are by Ansel Adams, Edward Weston, Wynn Bullock, Walker Evans, Bernice Abbott, Aaron Siskind, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Bill Brandt, Ihei Kimura, Yasuhiro Ishimoto, Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, Brend & Hilla Becher, Robert Capa, W. Eugene Smith, Danny Lyon, Larry Clark, Robert Frank, William Klein, Ken Domon, Edward Ruscha, Eikoh Hose and Lee Freidlander to mention but a few.

More information is available at: and their illustrated catalog for this auction is an interesting read as well.

Best regards, Douglas
