Session Ten (lots 3819-4104): Friday, October 23, 2020, at 1:30pm continued...

Philatelic Literature from the Louis Grunin Library
Lot Sym. Lot Description  
4088   The Essay Proof Journal, 1944-1993. Complete run of the Journal of the Essay-Proof Society, Issues 1-200 in a deluxe red hard bound format, 25 volumes total, bound by Grimm Book Bindery which is well known for its hardcover binding for rare archival materials, Extremely Fine, a very rare set which is not available in any online format and an absolute wealth of articles and information on essays and proofs, this would also make a handsome addition to a philatelic library, the cost of the binding alone meets the low end of our estimate and a complete run of the unbound journals (which is rarely seen) retails from dealers at the high end of our estimate or higher
